On Sunday July 16, 1995 at 0450hrs., the Lord God Almighty gave a word to his servant Jonathan Hansen concerning the people of the great nation of India. The following warning is a direct message from God:

"India, India a land and people so diversified; you are divided by problems -- sins as large as the ocean; you are divided by the sea. Turn back to me. All people come from me. I make them blameless, innocent from transgressions, from the coming Judgment. Then, they go their own way: they make their own gods of mortar, brick and clay; They choose their own prophets; from the dust of earth they came, and unto the dust they go. None with eternal life, just prophets of doom and death; a spirit from a false god, only a 'form' of myself. I will surely visit your transgressions, and your iniquities, I already see. None will escape from the eyes or ears of the Lord; for I see and hear all things, all lies, all secrets and all filthy abominations that daily go out throughout the land. Turn, turn from your wicked ways, saith the Lord of Hosts, for I am the King of Glory. You will not stand against me with all your wizards and sorcerers. I am a jealous God and my rage is about full. I will visit your sons and daughters with the wrath of my indignation, and will know I live. Your eyes will melt before thee and your ears burst; your skin will burn and you will remember this day of warning. Turn to me, turn to me, while there is still time, while my mercy and grace still flow. For I am coming with a sword, with pestilence and fire; and you will know that I live thus saith the Lord of Hosts, the living God of Israel and all nations, Jesus Christ the Lord. I am the Hope of Glory, King of all rulers; The Ruler that is yet to come and reign over land, ocean, sea, the world foundation and all that dwell therein."

After receiving this warning from the Lord for India, Brother Hansen went to sleep. Within minutes the Lord spoke to him with another warning. As Rev. Hansen lay in bed thinking about this sudden revelation, the Lord said, "Son of man, get up and write the words that I have given you." Reverend Hansen got up and recorded:

"Oh India, oh India, the land and people who have closed the ears. For you to know that I live, you will be hit with a giant earthquake, the largest you will have ever seen! First, it will strike Bombay then Madras, and you will know that I live."

The Bible tells us the Lord God Almighty and Jesus Christ (they are one) will give the interpretation and meaning to Divine Revelation. As his servant Prophet Hansen waited upon the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord revealed the meaning of this prophecy:

God is giving a strong warning of impending judgment. This is an act of his everlasting mercy and grace before eternal and final judgment arrives.

India is a country so different, so separate from the rest of the world, and from their own people in that very land. Born as babies, as all of us are, God holds them innocent. They grow and follow their own hearts, their own minds and many different evil spirits, which control the continent. The continent, which once was unified, is now split into separate countries brought on by their own desires from evil hearts.

The people all say they love their god or gods, but the gods they serve are idols made up to fulfill their own ways. They cannot see, hear or smell. They represent a lie. The only Living God allows us the freedom on earth to choose to live in harmony and peace with him and his creation through his Son. The Holy Spirit then abides in our being, giving us tranquility, causing us to be content. We harm no one and desire what is good and right and precious for one another. The world would then return to its original intent and state of holiness, beauty and perfection before sin (which is impurity, disease and death) was allowed to exist, brought here by rebellion against all that is good, pure and holy. When man rebels against his Maker, he is rebelling against his own being and existence.

God wants to return the earth to its original state before man rebelled. God is and will judge and separate all those who continue to cause the problems under which earth and mankind now suffer. God the Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ, is returning in full power and authority to restore his world. A world without the corruption of the glutton, demons and the devil. All spoken through the prophetic divine word will happen so you will know he lives, he reigns and is the great and only "I AM that I AM."

India, plagues are coming upon the earth and they have already started. God is calling you to repent of your evil ways, your lusts, your desires, lying and cheating. India will burn with fire. One must accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The mark of the Beast is coming; all those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ as their God, will take the mark of the Beast. Thus, in reality pledging their allegiance and loyalty to the New World Order under a false messiah led under the influence of Satan himself. Your religions will all follow this devil inspired world leader, and all nations and people will be judged.

THERE IS HOPE!

PEOPLE OF INDIA, REPENT NOW AND ACCEPT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHILE THERE IS YET TIME!

Get a Bible and read Revelation, chapters 13-22. Read it, study it, live it, breath it and you will find eternal life and escape the final judgment.

This prophecy was recorded on July 16, 1995 and conveyed to church leaders at that time.

History of India:

Past India: The Indus Valley civilization flourished on the Indian subcontinent during the 3rd and 2nd millennia B.C. Aryan tribes infiltrated India from the northwest about 1500 B.C. They introduced Sanskrit and the Vedic religion, a forerunner of Hinduism. Buddhism was founded in the 6th century B.C. and spread throughout northern India, most notably by one of the ancient kings of the Mauryan dynasty, Asoka (269-232 B.C.), who united much of South Asia.

In the 10th and 11th centuries, Turks and Afghans invaded India and established the Delhi Sultanate. In 1526, Muslim invaders, led by Emperor Babur, founded the Mughal Empire, centered in Delhi. Akbar the Great (1542-1605) consolidated the empire. The reign of Shah Jahan, (1592-1666) was the golden age of Mughal architecture. He erected several monuments, including the Taj Mahal at Agra. The reign of the great-grandson of Akbar, Aurangzeb (1618-1707), represents both the greatest extent of the Mughal Empire and the beginning of its decay.

Vasco da Gama, the Portuguese explorer, landed in India in 1498. The English founded the East India Company, which set up its first factory at Surat in 1612 and began expanding its influence, fighting Indian rulers and the French, Dutch, and Portuguese traders simultaneously.

Bombay became the seat of English rule in 1687. The defeat of French and Mughal armies by Lord Clive in 1757 laid the foundation of the British Empire in India. The East India Company continued to extend British rule until 1858, when the administration of India was formally transferred to the British Crown following the Sepoy Mutiny of native troops in 1857-1858.

Indian states sent more than 6 million troops to fight beside the Allies in World War I. After the war, Indian nationalist unrest rose under the leadership of a Hindu lawyer called Mahatma Gandhi. His philosophy of civil disobedience called for non-violent, non-cooperation against British authority. He became the leading spirit of the Indian National Congress Party.

In 1935, India was given a federal form of government and a measure of self-rule. In 1942, with the Japanese pressing hard on the eastern borders of India, the British War Cabinet tried and failed to reach a settlement with nationalist leaders. Fearing mass civil disobedience, India carried out widespread arrests of Congress Party leaders, including Gandhi. Gandhi was released in 1944.

In August 1947, India gained full independence. Violence led to the partitioning of the predominantly Muslim regions of the north into the separate nation of Pakistan. The Muslim League, led by Mohammed Ali Jinnah, demanded a separate nation for the Muslim minority to prevent Hindu domination. Lord Mountbatten, as viceroy, partitioned India along religious lines and split the provinces of Bengal and the Punjab, which both nations claimed. The partition of Pakistan and India led to the largest migration in human history, with 17 million people fleeing across the borders in both directions to escape the bloody riots.

In 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru became the first Prime Minister of independent India. In 1949, a constitution was approved, making India a sovereign republic. In 1956, the republic absorbed former French settlements. Nehru died in 1964. His successor, Lal Bahadur Shastri, died on January 10, 1966. Nehru's daughter, Indira Gandhi, became prime minister.

In 1971, the Pakistani army moved in to quash an independence movement in East Pakistan. About 10 million Bengali refugees poured across the border into India. After numerous border incidents, India invaded East Pakistan and forced the surrender of the Pakistani army. East Pakistan was established as an independent state and renamed Bangladesh.

In the summer of 1975, a judge in Allahabad found Indira Gandhi's landslide victory in the 1971 elections invalid because civil servants had illegally aided her campaign. Amid demands for her resignation, Gandhi decreed a state of emergency on June 26 and ordered mass arrests of her critics, including all opposition party leaders except the Communists.

In 1977, Indira Gandhi announced parliamentary elections and freed most political prisoners. The landslide victory of Morarji R. Desai unseated Gandhi, but she staged a comeback in the elections of January 1980.

In 1984, Gandhi ordered the Indian army to root out a band of Sikh holy men and gunmen who were using the most sacred shrine of the Sikh religion, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, as a base for terrorist raids in a violent campaign for greater autonomy in the Punjab border state.

On October 31, 1984, Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two men identified by police as Sikh members of her bodyguard. The ruling Congress Party chose her older son, Rajiv Gandhi, to succeed her as prime minister. While running for re-election, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated on May 22, 1991, by Tamil militants who objected to India's mediation of the civil war in Sri Lanka.

The Congress Party lost the parliamentary elections of May 1996. The Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) became the dominant force in politics, with Atal Bihari Vajpayee as prime minister.

In May 1998, India set off five nuclear tests. Despite international urging for restraint, Pakistan responded by conducting several nuclear tests of its own. In April 1999, both India and Pakistan tested nuclear-capable ballistic missiles. The Indian Air Force launched air strikes on May 26, 1999, and sent in ground troops against Islamic guerrilla forces in Kashmir. India blamed Pakistan for orchestrating violence in Kashmir. In August 1999, Pakistan was forced to withdraw.

In October 2001, violence broke out again when a suicide bombing by a Pakistan-based militant organization killed 38 in India-controlled Kashmir. India retaliated with heavy shelling.

On December 13, 2001, suicide bombers attacked the Indian parliament. Indian officials blamed the attack on Islamic militants supported by Pakistan. Hundreds of thousands of troops were assembled along the border, bringing the two nations to the brink of war.

In November 2002, hope for a peaceful solution to the conflict in Kashmir was raised when a newly elected coalition government vowed to reach out to separatists. Hopes were dashed in March 2003, following the slaughter of 24 Hindus in Kashmir. Officials blamed the massacre on Islamic militants. Days after the violence, both India and Pakistan test-fired short-range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Two bombs exploded in Mumbai, killing more than 50 people in August 2003. Indian officials blamed Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based militant Islamic group. In November 2003, India and Pakistan declared a formal cease-fire.

Present India: In one of the most dramatic political upsets in modern Indian history, the Indian National Congress Party, led by Sonia Gandhi, prevailed in parliamentary elections in May 2004, prompting Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to resign. Sonia Gandhi, the Italian-born widow of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, refused to become prime minister. The Bharatiya Janata Party protested Gandhi's elevation to prime minister because of her foreign birth. The Congress Party chose Manmohan Singh, who became India's first Sikh prime minister.

On December 26, 2004, a powerful tsunami ravaged 12 Asian countries. Nearly 11,000 people perished in India.

In March 2006, U.S. President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Singh agreed to a nuclear power deal that permitted the sale of nuclear technology.

Pratibha Patil, of the governing Congress party, was elected president in July 2007, becoming the country's first woman to hold the post. She defeated Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party.

Prime Minister Singh survived a confidence vote in July 2008. He lost the support of Communist parties as he sought to seal the nuclear power deal between the U.S. and India. In September 2008, the Nuclear Suppliers Group, comprised of representatives from 45 countries, voted in favor of the deal. The U.S. Congress approved the deal in October 2008. The deal could be scrapped if India uses the fuel for its weapons program.

Squirmishing along Kashmir's Line of Control broke out over the summer of 2008. The problems arose after authorities in Kashmir transferred 99 acres of land to a trust that runs a Hindu shrine, called Amarnath. Muslims launched a series of protests. The government rescinded the order, which outraged Hindus. About 40 people were killed in the protests.

Religious and ethnic clashes broke out throughout India in the summer and fall of 2008. The violence was exacerbated by a series of terrorist attacks largely blamed on Islamic militants, including one in the northern state of Assam that killed nearly 70 people and wounded hundreds in October.

India launched its first unmanned spacecraft in October 2008 for a two-year mission to map a three-dimensional atlas of the Moon and search for natural resources on the Moon's surface.

On November 26, 2008, terrorists originating from Pakistan conducted a series of coordinated attacks in Mumbai, India's financial capital. About 170 people were killed and about 300 wounded. Indian officials said ten gunmen carried out the attacks. It took Indian forces three days to end the siege. Indian and U.S. officials said they had evidence that Lashkar-e-Taiba was involved in the attack. India's home minister in charge of security, Shivraj Patil, resigned after the tragedy.

New Delhi's highest court overturned the ban on homosexuality in July 2009. Homosexuality was illegal in India since 1861. Court justices declared the law to be a violation of human rights and equality outlined in India's constitution.

Muhammad Ajmal Qasab, a Pakistani and the only attacker who survived the Mumbai attacks, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death by an Indian court in May 2010.

On July 13, 2011, three bombs exploded in Mumbai's business district during rush hour, killing 18 people and injuring more than 100.

In 2011, Anna Hazare, a 74-year-old Indian activist, went on two hunger strikes attempting to force India's parliament to adopt legislation instituting an independent anti-corruption agency called a Jan Lokpal, or ombudsman. The first strike ended after 13 days with an invitation to help draft a Lokpal bill. Anna Hazare decided the legislation was too weak, which led to a second hunger strike in December. On December 27, a bill was passed in the lower house before being stalled in the upper house.

In April 2012, India successfully launched the Agni 5, a long-range ballistic missile that can reach Beijing and Shanghai, China. It can also deliver a nuclear warhead. The exercise was seen as a response to China's investment in its military and growing assertiveness.

India was hit by the largest blackout in history in July 2012. More than half of India's population lost power for two days.

Protests spread throughout India in December 2012, when a woman died after being gang raped on a moving bus. The woman was flown to Singapore after three abdominal operations at a Delhi hospital, where her intestines were removed due to damage done by a metal rod during the attack.

In January 2013, the trial for the five men accused of the gang rape began. In February 2013, the government approved stiffer laws for sexual violence. The new laws included the death penalty in certain cases. On March 11, 2013, Ram Singh, the driver of the bus, was found hanging in his jail cell. Officials ruled his death as suicide, but Singh's family said he was killed.

On August 31, 2013, a teenager was convicted for his part in the gang rape. He was sentenced to three years in a juvenile correctional facility. On September 13, Judge Yogesh Khanna handed down a death sentence by hanging for the other four convicted men.

On December 11, 2013, the Indian Supreme Court reinstated a law banning gay sex. The ruling came after the court determined that the law had been improperly ruled unconstitutional by a lower court. Protests were held after the verdict and India's ruling party spoke out against the Supreme Court's ruling.

In May 2014, the Bharatiya Janata Party won a majority in parliament. The election took place in nine phases from April 7 through May 12, making it the longest election in the country's history. Narendra Modi assumed office as prime minister on May 26, 2014.
