On 4/16/2003 at 1817hrs., Rev. Hansen received this prophecy for Antigua and Barbuda:
"To Antigua & Barbuda, a nation of imported people; the spirits of your original countries have plagued you as a curse. You call yourself 'Christian', yet you do not live, act or talk as my children.
Hypocrisy in my name I disdain.
Your lives are a mockery to my name and Holy Spirit. Your allegiance to the United Nations are similar as allegiance given to the rulers of the Tower of Babel, and the leaders of the world one day led by the Antichrist of the book of Revelation.
Your children are producing bastards -- what is wrong? Are you not teaching them my ways in heart, spirit and conduct?
Repent of your hypocrisy, your guile and slothfulness; for I am a jealous God who loves the little ones and am calling them to 'come unto me'; for I will not fail them." (1827hrs.)
The prophecy continued on 4/17/2003 at 0939hrs.:
"To the people of Antigua and Barbuda; do not look to your leaders as gods or saviors, for they are but flesh and blood; they are human and influenced by sin. Look to me, Jesus Christ, who you despise by your actions. I am worthy to be praised, trusted in, honored and obeyed. I am worthy to be worshiped with a heart filled with joy that comes from God. Your joy cannot be based on men or circumstances, but it must be placed and based on me, the unfailing one. I will lift you up out of your circumstances and depression. I will sustain you from the coming day of suffering, plagues and death. I am the Lord your God and my name is Jesus.
I am calling you to a life of victory; a life filled with joy, fulfillment and peace. Not peace as the world defines it, but peace with God and peace within. In the time of trouble, which I am releasing upon the nations and upon Antigua and Barbuda, I will give you peace, security and safety under my wings of protection, under my blood."
History of Antigua and Barbuda:
The Siboney were the first people to inhabit the islands of Antigua and Barbuda. Arawak Indians populated the islands when Christopher Columbus landed in 1493 and named the islands for the Church of Santa Maria de la Antigua in Seville. Antigua was colonized by Britain in 1632 and slavery was established to run the sugar plantations. Barbuda was first colonized in 1678. Slavery was abolished in 1834.
Antigua and Barbuda joined the West Indies Federation in 1958. With the breakup of the federation, it became one of the West Indies Associated States in 1967. The islands became an independent state within the British Commonwealth of Nations on November 1, 1981.
The Antigua Labour Party (ALP), founded by Vere Cornwall Bird, first ran candidates in the 1946 elections and became the majority party in 1951.
Law enforcement officials charged that Antigua and Barbuda as a center of money laundering, drug trafficking, and arms smuggling. Several scandals tainted the Bird family, especially the 1995 conviction of Ivor Bird, the brother of Prime Minister Lester Bird, for cocaine smuggling.
In 2000, Antigua and 35 other offshore banking centers agreed to reforms to prevent money laundering.
In March 2004, the Bird political dynasty came to an end when the United Progressive Party won the elections and Baldwin Spencer became prime minister
In 2005, income tax, which had been eliminated in 1975, was reintroduced aimed at helping alleviate Antigua's deficit.
On July 17, 2007, Louise Lake-Tack became the first woman governor-general of Antigua and Barbuda.
On July 27, 2008, Ben and Catherine Mullany, health professionals from the United Kingdom, were murdered during their honeymoon in Antigua. The murders sparked a diplomatic row between Antigua and the United Kingdom resulting in sweeping legislative reform in Antigua.
Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer implemented measures in order to increase Antigua's police power including stop-and-search powers for the police, systematic searches within various communities for guns and drugs, new surveillance cameras and wire-tapping.
In July 2011, Kaniel Martin and Avie Howell were found guilty of the Mullany murders and that of a shopkeeper, Woneta Anderson.
In March 2012, A court in Houston, Texas, found Allen Stanford guilty of running a $7 billion Ponzi scheme through a bank based in Antigua.
In October 2013, Antigua and Barbuda began a program selling citizenship.
