“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17.
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape,” 1 Thessalonians 5:3.
“My people, what would you seek from Me in this hour?
What would be the purposes of your heart?
What would be the things that I would show you?
Do you think that all would be well with your land and that peace would ultimately rule?
I tell you, woe unto those so say that peace will come. Woe to those who preach peace and safety.
Woe to those who preach a different gospel other than the one that I have spoken to them.
Have I not said that judgment must first begin with the household of God?
And now you don’t even realize that the dominoes have begun to fall! When will you awaken from your slumber oh church?
You rise early to watch your favorite news reports, but when would you sit before Me?
Even now chaos is spreading all around you. Your government is in disarray and falling apart at the seams.
And yet you still laud your new-founded leader and have treated him like a golden calf. The fall of this man will be great.
At a time of weakness your land will be invaded. Because of your weakness and because your eyes are ever upon your ever-consuming chaos, this is why you will fall prey to outside influences.
And yet you say that you are well. You say that you are righteous. Your righteousness is as a filthy rag to Me!
You care not for the poor or the under-privileged. You care for a whole host of other things rather than for the things of God.
But I have waited and waited. I have waited to see who else would come to Me. For it is but a short time before all these things must fall.
I have asked many of you to get ready and you have continued to go your own way. But you will be left to your own devices when it falls.
But I have a remnant. I have a remnant who will be ready in that hour.
They have been purged and brought through the fire. They have been brought through many seasons of affliction, and they will come out like gold in this hour.
My people, you need not be afraid. You need not shrink back in fear. But get your houses in order.
Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord.”

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
