On January 28, 1995, Rev. Hansen received another revelation (word of knowledge) from the only true and Living God. The warning was:
"The nation generally has not recognized God's hand trying to draw their attention toward him. Instead, they remain self-reliant and proud. More earthquakes will fall upon Japan. Also, another catastrophe of a different type will fall upon Japan. Through these series of events the Word will be received in greater proportion than before by some of the church; and some people in Japan will turn to the living God."
The warning and messages from the Lord are clear! Many Christians and others in Japan are spiritually bound by deception. This is the result of not allowing the Holy Spirit, through the Scriptures (Bible), to change one's heart, mind, personality, values, beliefs and lifestyle. When believers continue to resist the operation of the Holy Spirit in their lives, through Scripture, they become spiritually bankrupt. In their own self-reliance, they become unaware of their rebellious nature. Instead, they become vain, callous and cold to the truths, mercy and love of God. Through the warnings (catastrophes), God in his grace is trying to get man's attention and enable him to see his true spiritual condition (Romans 1:16-32).
On March 20, 1995, a "catastrophe of a different type", warned by God, hit Japan. 12 people died and 5,500 were injured. The Tokyo subway was the scene of a bizarre attack on millions of people. The April 3, 1995 edition of Newsweek magazine reads, "It was a mystery why many more people didn't die."
Japan was once again left in a state of shock as fear gripped the nation.
It is believed that Shoko Asahara, leader of the Aum Shinsikyo Sect, was behind the sarin gas attack. Newsweek magazine cover edition April 3, 1995, reads Cult of Terror. Newsweek reports, "Venerated Master, Shoku Asahara says sarin will be a primary weapon in the final world war set to begin as early as 1997." According to Newsweek magazine May 29, 1995, Aum devotees are accused of helping to amass enough chemical and biological weapons to kill millions of people. Police suspect Aum tried to smuggle nuclear weapons from Russia. Time magazine, June 12, 1995 reports that Asahara planned to start a world war in November 1995 by, "Attacks on government buildings, the Diet and the Imperial Palace. One plan called for releasing sarin over Tokyo from 1.65-m-long remote-controlled helicopters. Asahara would follow up the attack by overpowering the Japanese Self Defense Forces, and taking control of Japan with his own tanks and fighter jets."
Once again, God's word and revelation January 28, 1995 of the future came true!
Two major catastrophes leave Japan questioning their values, beliefs and meaning to life. Newsweek May 29, 1995 reports, "Our system created people who may be smart with high marks, but don't have any feeling about hurting others. This country is not so healthy mentally," says Hideo Takeichi, a journalism professor at Tokyo's Sophira University. "We Japanese university professors, and also the Ministry of Education, should have some sense of responsibility for this sarin gas incident. It's a chance for a paradigm shift - for a change in our basic social values." A private institution in Tokyo last year found 15 percent of Japanese white-collar workers in their 20's to be 'mentally unstable.' For a while the economic ride was enough for some people, but there isn't a whole lot you can hook into in Japanese society if you're looking for something to give your life meaning."
There are over 180,000 religious groups nationwide in Japan today. The Bible tells us that religion is not the answer; there is only one true and living God revealed through Jesus Christ. There will be more catastrophes in Japan on an increasing scale in the future as God, in his mercy, tries to reveal himself to the people in Japan.
Many people will die -- damned and rejected by God because they would not heed the warnings and turn to the true God.
THERE IS HOPE!
Christians in Japan, it is time to live and preach the Word of God faithfully to bring salvation to yourselves and set the captives free (the people blinded in selfish deception).

People of Japan turn from your present values and seek the only TRUE GOD as your only source of security.
