To the Government of Ethiopia:

My name is Jonathan Hansen. I am an ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the living God. I travel now primarily to countries where God has given me a message for either a person, the Christian community, the government or the nation.

On Saturday morning, May 18, 1995 at 0448hrs., the Lord Jesus Christ gave a message for the Ethiopian government via the President of Ethiopia:

This warning was told by a word of knowledge. The definition of a word of knowledge explained by the Holy Scriptures, is knowledge that previously was not known but is now revealed by Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In other words, Jehovah is God the Father, Jesus is God the Son and the Holy Spirit is God the Comforter:

Mr. President, I have no purpose to give you this Word except to be faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ who in His loving kindness and tender mercy is trying once again to reach out to you. Whether I personally am welcomed again to Ethiopia is not important. What is crucial is that I give this information to you revealed divinely for the Ethiopian government to you.

The word from the Lord God Almighty is this:

"You courted the prostitute then, you've courted the prostitute now. Is it not the same prostitute who gave you AIDS (death) then? It is the same prostitute that will also give you AIDS (death) now. Remove yourself from the prostitute if you want to live!"

As the Bible illustrates, God may give the meaning of his message through a vision, dream or word of knowledge. As I waited upon the Lord, the interpretation was given. Once again, I must state emphatically that my only motive for coming now to Ethiopia and giving you this warning is the holiest of reasons. I live to be a faithful messenger of Jehovah and that alone. I love all people and all nations with the purest of heart. For long ago, I quit disobeying the Scriptures; I asked Jesus Christ to come into my heart. Now the Holy Spirit guides and directs my life. As the Word of God explains, "It is no longer I that liveth but Christ that liveth in (through) me."

The Interpretation of the words from God is:

"The old government entertained the Orthodox Church who pretended to be faithful then giving it advice. They worked and played together, but the old government got sick and died. The prostitute of death changed partners, being loyal to no one but itself. It is working and playing now with you, but you will also get sick and die. It will then work and play with the next one who will go together with others against Israel. Its loyalty is not for its partners, or the people, but for only itself; and this carrier of death will survive after you are gone!"

The Holy Scriptures tell us in the Protestant King James Bible, Galatians 1:6-9: "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again. If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received; let him be accursed."

I used the terminology of the Protestant Bible because it alone is the true original book from the Lord. Protestant means to protest over the errors and lies from the Catholic Bible. The Catholic Church added words to the Holy Scriptures, which were not part of the original text accepted by theologians, and passed on through the centuries since the time of Christ. Not only the Catholic Church, but also Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, the Orthodox Church and others have perverted the original Holy Scriptures for corrupt church leaders' own benefit to control mankind and governments. These other churches have altered words and some have added new books to the Church's Bible, which nullify the true Scripture (the Bible).


The divine warning from the Lord was:

"Remove yourself from the prostitute if you want to live!"

God in his mercy is telling the Ethiopian government to remove itself from the influence of the Orthodox Church. It does not preach and teach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, but the doctrine of demons (fallen angels).

This prophecy was recorded on May 18, 1995 and conveyed to church leaders at that time.

To the Church in Ethiopia:

"For you are not my church without spot or wrinkle, but I am going to make you that way. Draw nigh unto me and I will draw nigh unto you. I am the Lord your God that savest thee. Be not afraid for the arrow by night or the terror by day, for I am with thee. My rod and staff will comfort thee and you will learn to trust in me. I want to purify you, but you have others (strangers) that have joined (entered) you. Be not afraid, I will manifest who they are; just seek me, for I will guide you," saith the Lord of hosts.

The word of knowledge (supernatural revelation) was given from the Lord to Brother Jonathan Hansen between 0100 and 0120hrs., Wednesday morning, June 27, 1995.

Rev. Hansen now travels to countries specifically where God wants him to give a word. While Brother Hansen was in the Spirit, he was given Ezekiel 5:1-5 for the Ethiopian believers:

"And thou, son of man take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber's razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard; then take thee balances to weigh and divide the hair. Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled; and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife; and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them. Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts. Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel. Thus saith the Lord God; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her."

Church in Ethiopia, on a Thursday morning, May 18, 1995 at 0448hrs., the Lord gave me a message for your government. I have documented the prophecy on paper and I am in the process of presenting it to them through your President. I do not believe they will receive the Warning from the Lord and repent. Nevertheless, I will have been faithful to God as his servant in sharing God's word. God will have continued, as always, to be faithful in extending mercy, compassion and grace. Our responsibility, brethren, is not to concentrate on the results, we must just obey the Lord through his word and guiding of his Spirit.

To summarize what was prophesied concerning your past, present and future government, please read the following:

"Your previous government slept with the prostitute of death then; the current government is also sleeping with this Angel of Death. Both governments listened and took her advice. God has warned this present government to break away from her or it will die too; that the next government will continue to sleep, eat and drink with this same prostitute and together they will join others in going against Israel. The prostitute is the Orthodox Church."


God has already promised through his word and his servant that he will be with you to strengthen and purify you. There will be scoffers -- ignore them. They who scoff reveal whom they really serve, as they cannot discern the Spirit of the Lord, but prepare yourselves for what lies ahead. Enough warning has now been given; I will see you soon. Thus said the Lord, "And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it; fear not, nor be dismayed; for the Lord God even my God will be with me; he will not fail thee, or forsake thee, until thou has finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord."

History of Ethiopia:

Past Ethiopia: Originally called Abyssinia, Ethiopia is sub-Saharan Africa's oldest state, and its Solomonic dynasty claims descent from King Menelik I, traditionally believed to have been the son of the queen of Sheba and King Solomon.

Coptic Christianity was brought to the region in A.D. 341, and a variant of it became Ethiopia's state religion.

Emperor Menelik II established Ethiopia's independence by routing an Italian invasion in 1896. After Menelik's death, his daughter ascended to the throne in 1917, with his cousin, Tafari Makonnen, as regent and heir apparent. When the empress died in 1930, Tafari was crowned Emperor Haile Selassie I. Haile Selassie, called the "Lion of Judah," outlawed slavery. In 1931, he created a constitution, revised in 1955, that called for a parliament with an appointed senate, an elected chamber of deputies, and a system of courts. Basic power remained with the emperor.

Fascist Italy invaded Ethiopia on October 3, 1935, forcing Haile Selassie into exile in May 1936. Ethiopia was annexed to Eritrea and Italian Somaliland, forming Italian East Africa. In 1941, British troops routed the Italians. Haile Selassie returned to Addis Ababa.

In 1952, Eritrea was incorporated into Ethiopia.

On September 12, 1974, Haile Selassie was deposed and the country proclaimed a Socialist state under a collective military dictatorship called the Provisional Military Administrative Council (PMAC), also known as the Derg. U.S. aid stopped, and Cuban and Soviet aid began. Lt. Col. Mengistu Haile Mariam became head of state in 1977. Ethiopia then fought against Eritrean secessionists and the government fought against its own people in a campaign called "Red Terror." Thousands of political opponents were killed.

The regime was finally toppled in 1991 when a coalition of rebel forces, the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), seized the capital. Meles Zenawi Asres became President. A separatist guerrilla organization, the Eritrean People's Liberation Front, took control of the province of Eritrea. The two groups agreed that Eritrea would have an internationally supervised referendum on independence. Ethiopia accepted and recognized Eritrea as an independent state in 1993.

A constitution was adopted in 1994, and Ethiopia's first multi-party elections were held in 1995. Meles Zenawi was elected Prime Minister in 1995.

Sixty-eight leaders of the former military government were put on trial in April 1996 on charges that included genocide and crimes against humanity.

In May 1998, Eritrea initiated border clashes that developed into a full-scale war that left more than 80,000 dead. A formal peace agreement was signed in December 2000. The United Nations provided more than 4,000 peacekeeping forces to patrol the buffer zone between the two nations. An international commission defined a new border between the two countries in April 2002.

Present Ethiopia: In 2003, in an effort to solve its chronic shortage of food and to lessen its dependence on international aid, Ethiopia began relocating 2 million farmers from their parched highland homes to areas with more fertile soil in the western part of the country. The largest relocation program in African history turned into a disaster. Much of the fertile regions where the farmers have been resettled are rife with malaria.

In December 2005, an International Court of Arbitration ruled that Eritrea had violated international law in attacking Ethiopia in the 1998 war.

In June 2006, an Islamist militia seized control of the capital of Somalia. Ethiopia amassed troops on Somalia's border, in support of Somalia's transitional government. In mid-December, Ethiopia launched air strikes against the Islamists. Battles between the insurgents and Somali and Ethiopian troops intensified in March 2007, leaving over 300 civilians dead.

In May 2008, Ethiopia's Supreme Court sentenced Mengistu to death in absentia. He had lived in Zimbabwe since 1991.

Ethiopia began withdrawing troops from Somalia in January 2009.

Prime Minister Meles Zenawi's EPRDF won parliamentary elections in May 2010. The U.S. and European Union said the vote failed to meet international standards. The opposition refused to recognize the results. Nevertheless, parliament elected Zenawi to a fourth term.

In August 2012, Prime Minister Zenawi died after a long illness. Zenawi was repressive and dictatorial, arresting and imprisoning activists, journalists, and members of the opposition. Hailemariam Desalegn succeeded Zenawi.

On October 7, 2013, Mulatu Teshome Wirtu was unanimously elected president by Parliament.
