The year 2004 has just begun! There is so very much to do and so little time, workers, and resources to do it with.
In 2003, I traveled to and ministered in Texas, Florida, Japan, and twice in Jamaica. In 2004, God willing I will personally travel to and minister in Texas, Florida, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Japan, Jamaica, and Russia.
The Commission that the Lord gave to me is to warn nations what is about to come upon them according to the Scriptures. I share with them how according to His laws called “sowing and reaping”, or my definition, “The Science of Judgment” (which entails the Cup of Iniquity principal), God holds people and nations accountable for their lifestyle. God uses me to give a word of prophecy that the following is about to come upon them unless they repent of their rebellion against the living God and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy and grace. This will allow the precious blood of Jesus Christ to cover their sins and give them eternal life. I am now focusing on 85 nations with a specific prophecy.
In 1985, after five years of chastening from the Lord for my hypocrisy, the Lord gave me my first supernatural dream. I saw myself traveling throughout the world and ministering to large masses of people in different countries. I felt the heartbeat of God and intuitively knew how very sad and grieved Jesus was for the pathetic condition of His church. He explained to me that the leaders of the church were largely responsible for turning His bride into an inverted state of selfishness. Humanism was the theology in most churches and many pastors were using the flock for personal gain as they manipulated the people with their warped messages of financial prosperity, etc. The Lord told me that His church had become “lukewarm” and that is why it was so powerless, loveless and cruel. The reason why Christians had become only a shell; a relic of what they should be, was because they were following the leadership of their pastors who had fallen in love with the things of this world. I awoke out of that dream from God with an indescribable burden for the condition of the bride of Christ and knew I had to help prepare the church for the second coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I immediately started resigning from different areas of my work and ministry at that time and started to liquidate my assets to allow myself the freedom to travel throughout the United States and the world, holding revival meetings, and calling people to repent of their iniquities in preparation for the return of Jesus Christ. Shortly after that, God showed me a vision of people in lines in front of churches, theaters, libraries, stores, etc., all waiting to receive their world citizen mark on the right hand or forehead.
Dear Saints, as you know time is running out. The book of Revelation is about to unfold. Plagues such as mankind has never experienced before are about to be unleashed. That is why Scripture describes it as “The Great Tribulation”. The spirit of the beast (antichrist) is escalating throughout the nations as a polarization is taking place between the people submitting themselves under the spirit, values and beliefs of Lucifer and those who are committing their wills to the will of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The commission the Lord has given me is directed first to the leadership of the nations and the church, second to the believers, and third to society. He told me “to speak the truth and His people would back me.” At first, Jesus attempted to speak in the synagogues and usually was rejected by most of the leadership because they were guilty for the condition of society. Jesus would then go straight to the people. Likewise, I attempt to minister where possible to the leadership (political & church) and then to the Christian community and the rest of society through the mass media (television, radio, short wave, news articles etc.).
World Ministries International’s (WMI) mission is to the body of Christ at large. I minister to pastors and churches nondenominationally as the Church of Jesus Christ is much larger than any one denomination or church. I exhort them to get back to the full gospel of Jesus Christ and allow the spirit of Pentecost to flow through them to touch their local church, city, state and country where they live. WMI is totally dedicated to world missions; to help the total body of Christ in local churches to be effective for Jesus.
The Lord told me 200,000 believers throughout the United States will become part of this world missions fighting force to help bring revival to churches throughout America and around the world. I call this 200,000 Christian fighting force, “The Church Without Walls.” All Christians should belong to a local church but they are also a part of the greater church called the “ekklessia” or the members of Christ’s body, which is the real church. These 200,000 people who are called by the Holy Spirit will help me bring revival to the nations through their prayers and financial support. The prayer is that each person on the mailing list will be a tape or video of the month partner and through all of our efforts we can literally shake the nations. God help us all to accomplish this vision and commission.
Rev. Jonathan Hansen
“Amos 8:11-12 Behold, the days are coming” says the Lord God, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the Lord. They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; they shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord, But shall not find it.”
In a day of Christian television and radio, with churches around every corner, how could there be a famine of God’s Word? Yet, there is. Part of the Word is being spoken, but what is being left out, and how does it affect the body of Christ? Have you been hiding the Word of God in your heart enough to know what is being left out? Where is the alarm? The enemy is nigh unto the camp, but there is no alarm. Where are the warriors? There is definitely a battle raging, but are you showing up for the battle, or is there a gap where you are supposed to be? What is God asking you to do? I pray that you will meditate on these questions and take them to the Lord, so if you haven’t been able to see the condition of the church and this nation yet, your eyes can be opened. If your eyes have already been opened, then I pray you will be moved to action. 1 Peter 4:17 says, For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? This is a time where we cannot be uncertain about what God is asking us to do, and we must obey. We must have spiritual eyes and be about the work of the Father. God is going to hold us accountable for our actions or lack of them. Don’t be guilty of looking at the world around you and saying, “It has gone too far.” Are the problems of this world too big for the One True Living God? God forbid! I would challenge you to look all throughout the Bible at the atrocities practiced by people who did not know God. The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9). The enemy just keeps using the same tactics over and over again, but why change when they have been successful. I would also like to challenge you to read the book of Joshua. The Lord told Joshua to be strong and courageous. He told him that if he would meditate on His Word day and night that He would prosper him. God told him to possess the land. I like how in Joshua chapter 10, he had the captains of the men of war put their feet on the necks of the kings who had come against them. Gird up your loins and get into the battle! Listen to the instructions of our commander; let’s take back the ground the enemy has stolen from the church. If you are still having a problem hearing the voice of God, then I would challenge you to start laying other things aside and start spending that time reading, praying and meditating on the Word of God so you can begin to hear His voice clearly. Now is the time!
You may ask yourself, “How can I get into the battle?” God is putting together an intercessory team called the “Soldiers of the Cross.” God told Apostle/Prophet Hansen that he would need this intercessor team to spread the truth of the Word of God throughout the nations. This spiritual army will break down every wall and stronghold this ministry faces; a team that will conquer every principality and power of darkness trying to stop us from doing God’s work. We need warriors who will use eyes of faith and help us take back the land. There will come a time when Christians will be arrested for speaking the truth of the Bible. Now the anti-Christ system is using the laws of the land to try to muzzle the church. Many have already been silenced through this system. We will go to the nations bringing God’s healing and deliverance. We will speak the truth of God’s Word, which sets the captives free. Will you back us? We are marching into great battles and we need the people of God to fight with us. It is time to join! You may already be involved in an intercessory group, but God wants to do something much bigger. There is strength in numbers. God has called, commissioned, and equipped you to war against the forces of darkness. Has God called you to be a part of this army, the “Soldiers of the Cross?” Will there be a gap, or will you stand in that gap? And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. (Ezekiel 22:30). Let’s not repeat history like in Ezekiel.
God is searching for 2,000 intercessors in the United States and in every nation. Will you be one? Go to our website, worldministries.org, click on the 2,000 intercessor button and fill out the intercessor’s application, or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have access to the internet then call our office at (360) 629-5248 and join the “Soldiers of the Cross.” It’s time to fight!

“I Will Build My Church, and The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It” Matthew 16.18
Testimony of Mark and Julie - Compiled by Karen Buckardt
A few years ago, Mark and Julie began praying for Mark’s daughter (Mallory), who lived in a non-Christian environment in New York. Their burden was simple: They desired the Lord to open the necessary doors, which would enable Mallory to come live with them in Oregon. During this time, Mark and Julie made connection with WMI and asked if the Gate Breakers prayer team would agree with them in prayer concerning their daughter. The initial request to the judge was denied, however, we persevered in prayer as we felt that this was the will of Christ. A couple of years later, they received a call from New York informing them that Mallory (age 15) had tried to commit suicide and was placed in a mental institution. During this time, the Lord spoke to Mallory in a vision and assured her that she would be ok if she went to live with her father and Julie. With Mallory in a desperate situation, all hindrances were removed and the release to move to Oregon was granted. Shortly thereafter, as they were watching a video series by Apostle/Prophet Hansen tiled, “Healing and Discerning of spirits and Deliverance,” the Spirit of God moved upon Mallory and she informed Mark and Julie that she wanted to accept Christ. As Mallory began to pray, she felt a demonic force in her life, which was hindering her spiritual growth. Mark and Julie laid hands on her and by the power of the Holy Spirit, the demons were cast out. Since Mallory’s conversion and deliverance, she has stopped taking medications that she once needed to help her sleep because of the demonic voices, which were harassing her. Now Mallory is growing in the knowledge, wisdom and power of the Lord Jesus Christ, is making good grades, and developing meaningful Christian relationships. Praise the name of the Lord!

In the acrostic P-R-A-Y-E-R below, I have described several of the important characteristics of prayer and of those who pray, in hopes of challenging each person to judge themselves so as to ensure that we are presenting our petitions and requests to Christ in a righteous fashion, based and grounded in the Word of God.
Perseverance – Many fail to see the hand of God move because they fail to persevere in prayer. What does it mean to persevere? To persevere is to adhere (to hold fast, to stay on a steady course) concerning an action, a belief, or a purpose. The Word of God states that we “need to persevere so that when (we) have done the will of God, (we) will receive what he has promised” (Hb. 10.36). Later, in verse 39, the writer of Hebrews emphatically states that the Church is to be comprised of warriors with an aggressive attitude: “But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.” If we fail to persevere in prayer; that is, if we fail to hold fast and stay on the God-given course of action, regardless of duration of time or persecution, then we fail in prayer and should not expect to see an answer.
Repentance – Many prayers go unanswered because the Christian is in wrong standing with the Lord in some area of their lives. Unconfessed sin in the life of the believer will hinder the effectiveness of prayer. James 5.16 tells us to “confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” Right standing with the Lord, which necessitates right standing with our brother (1 Jn 2.9-11; Mt. 5.23-24), puts us on “praying ground” and provides the foundation for answered prayer. The Word of God tells us in Pv.15.29 that “The Lord is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous,” that is, those in right standing. What is the result of the prayer offered by the righteous? The latter half of James 5.16 states, “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective!”
Attitude – Hb.4.12: “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Why is the Lord interested in judging our thoughts and attitudes? It is because the Lord knows that it is the thoughts and attitudes of the heart, which dictate the actions of man. Attitudes arising from the flesh are filled with doubt and unbelief and stifle the will of Christ, as in the 10 spies who gave a doubt-filled report, which propelled them into the wilderness instead of the Promised Land. However, if we study and meditate on the Word of God, it will produce divine wisdom, which will give us the same attitude as Christ himself and will enable and empower us to possess our full inheritance.
Yearning – What is it to yearn? To yearn after the Lord is synonymous with deeply desiring, longing, hungering or thirsting for Jesus in prayer. Do you thirst for Jesus? In your time of hardship, when you are in desperate need of a breakthrough, when you are in the midst of a “wilderness” experience, does your heart seek the living waters of Jesus? David, while wandering in the wilderness of Judah cried out, “O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you, my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water” (Ps. 62.1). David had needs; you and I have needs; what is the solution? SEEK HIM! The answer to our trials is Jesus himself. Job, while afflicted with many tragic circumstances, sought the Lord with yearning: “I myself will see him with my own eyes – I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me” (Jb.19.27). As we yearn for the Lord we encounter His glory, His majesty, His power, and out of that spiritual engagement blessings flow.
Expectation – The prayer of an unbelieving child of God is seldom granted. A person who has expectation has an anticipatory belief that what they pray for, in His name, shall come to pass. The psalmist declared, “Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice…I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation” (Ps.5.1-3). The carnal nature of man rejects the things of the Spirit. Satan attempts to take advantage of the Christian by planting seeds of doubt and deception into the mind of the believer. This is why the Word commands us to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Cor.10.5). We are to reject thoughts of doubt and unbelief and are to cling to, and meditate on, the things of God, and the Word of God, which instills faith and expectation.
Results – Prior to his death, Jesus comforted his disciples with this awesome promise: “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing…And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (Jn.14.12-14). In scripture, God often changed the name of an individual to identify his name with his character. When we pray in the name of Jesus, we are praying in the very nature or character of the Lord. The will of the Lord is expressed through His nature, and we must understand and pray in accordance with His nature to see supernatural results. Many Christians fail to typify many of the characteristics mentioned above (perseverance, repentance, godly attitude, yearning and expectation) and thus fail to see the power of Christ manifest through their prayers. Christ’s promise to His children is this: “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well” (Mk.16.17-18).
