ONCE THERE WAS A LAND – Stephen Hanson


Stephen Hanson
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27

“Once there was a land that knew Me. Once there was a land that came to Me, and worshiped Me in Spirit and in Truth. But now many have decided rather, to follow after a man who would promise great things. I tell you that I AM the only One that can bring you out of the mess that you have created. You stand upon the edge of desolation; you teeter upon a cliff that is slowly crumbling away.

You are not so unlike Rome, for in its greatness it sought to expand its empire unto the reaches around it. It threw many of my believers into the den with the lions, and its games were bloodier than the most gruesome wars.

What will become of you oh land? What would your forefathers have thought of your present condition? Ah…but you say that you are great; you say that even greater things are coming! If you were great then you would have taken care of the motherless and the orphan. If you were great then you wouldn’t have boasted of your greatness. For to be great according to the world’s standards is not great in my eyes.

Even many of your prophets are confused. For some speak of greater days that are coming and others speak of total annihilation. Neither of these is true. For there is always a way provided out; and yet with the way that is provided out, there is still great judgment that is coming. For am I not a God of balance? Do not the ocean’s waves come in and then recede back?

Truly you are held in the balance and found wanting, and yet I AM still a Father that longs for His children to come unto Himself. ”

  1. Crying in a desolate wilderness!!

    Excellent word!!! Oh, that ye blind would but see, and ye deaf hear!!

    Many, many follow after a man, and others follow after other men. But I ask you, did God not give the Hebrews SAUL because they wanted a “King like the peoples of other nations”??

    Do we not have our own bloody games right now, nowadays at least 4 times a week?? And we think this is NORMAL and FUN, and consider all the injuries just “part of the game”.

    This word states that neither current prophecies of “greater days” coming, NOR of “total annihilation” are true. I agree 100%. READ HIS WORD – it’s there!!! Do you not understand the divine law of “we reap what we sow”??? The atrocities, the corruption, and evil that are happening around the world are a DIRECT RESULT of our lack of godliness!!! We are to put no gods before Him, yet we do so all the time!!! We even say, “the ALMIGHTY DOLLAR” (I only know of ONE almighty!!), and one famous radio pundit even speaks of “KING DOLLAR”.

    We SAY we love God, but do we TRULY love our neighbor as ourself??? You can’t do one without doing the other!!!

    I could go on and on, but know that few will hear. This IS WRITTEN in God’s word!

    I pray for all and continue to cry.

    A brother.
