Prophecy for Guyana:
"There is a Spirit of Control and Conspiracy that has cursed the people of Guyana that was birthed at Independence from countries outside of Guyana. This spirit influenced the first elections and continues to play a part in every election to influence the outcome through Conspiracy, plots, plans, promises and corruption. This has entered into the Churches of Guyana causing coups, splits and fights as pastors rebel against Godly Authority and fail to follow the scriptures all in the name of the Holy Spirit thus splitting the church by taking over the church or starting another one.
I see ethnic fighting in Guyana because the church is not sanctified, matured enough to stop deep carnal prejudices and biases. I see a church in Guyana that has compromised Jesus Christ to the level of other religions and gods.
I see a church in Guyana that likes to sing, shout, bind and loose but they have no spiritual authority from God to turn the tide of evil or stop the devil because too much of the devil reigns in themselves.
Look in the mirror and you will see the devil--adultery, fornication and bastards everywhere!"
On 6/18/2003 at 1259hrs., Rev. Hansen received this prophecy for Central and South America:
"Witchcraft and voodoo, chants and charms, spirits, demons, devils and gods are worshiped and adored. Your past is haunting; your past is destructive; your past is cursed with disease, plagues and death. Yet, your past is mild in comparison with the turmoil coming in the future -- earthquakes, disease, calamities and death.
Your gods, sorcerers, witches and magicians will not be able to save you from what I am allowing to come upon your nations, lands, water and oceans.
You have denied the Truth of the Ages and I am about ready to deny you of my protection and love. Cry out to your gods and see if they will or can answer you now. They are dead and they will burn with the fire of my wrath as I clean the land of its curses, plagues, disease and death.
Yes, a New Earth is coming and you will know that I live. Come under my blood into the arms of my love, so I can protect you from what lies ahead. Come now unto me, the Spirit of God Jesus Christ is saying."
History of Guyana:
The Warrou people were the indigenous inhabitants of Guyana. The Dutch, English, and French established colonies, but the majority of settlements were Dutch by the early 17th century. By 1815, Guyana had become a British possession. Britain took over the Dutch colonies of Berbice, Demerara, and Essequibo, which became British Guiana in 1831.
Slavery was outlawed in 1834, and the need for plantation workers led to a large wave of immigration, primarily of East Indians.
British Guiana became a Crown colony in 1928, and in 1953 it was granted home rule. In 1950, Cheddi Jagan and Forbes Burnham created the colony's first political party, the Progressive People's Party (PPP). In the 1953 elections, Cheddi Jagan was elected Chief Minister. The British, alarmed by Jagan's Marxist views, suspended the constitution and government and installed an interim government. In 1955, the PPP split. Burnham broke off to create the People's National Congress (PNC).
In 1961, Britain granted the colony autonomy. Jagan became prime minister. In 1964, Burnham succeeded Jagan as prime minister. The nation achieved independence on May 26, 1966 and returned to its traditional name, Guyana.
In 1978, American religious cult leader Jim Jones and 900 of his followers committed mass suicide in Jonestown.
Burnham ruled Guyana until his death in 1985. Desmond Hoyte of the PNC succeeded Burnham as president, but in 1992, Cheddi Jagan won the election and became president. After his death in 1997, his wife, Janet Jagan, was elected president, but resigned in 1999 due to poor health. Former finance minister Bharrat Jagdeo assumed the presidency in 1999.
In March 2001, Bharrat Jagdeo was re-elected. The re-election of Jagdeo, an ethnic East Indian, caused rioting among Afro-Guyanese, who claimed widespread election fraud.
In January - February 2005, Guyana experienced its worst natural disaster. More than a third of the country's population was affected by devastating flooding.
Bharrat Jagdeo was re-elected again as president in 2006.
In November 2011, Donald Ramotar, the General Secretary of the People's Progressive Party (PPP), was elected president. Ramotar was elected by a slim margin while his party fell one seat short of a parliamentary majority. The opposition parties said that the presidential election had been tampered with. Guyana's electoral authority reported that the election was fair.
