On October 8, 1994, Rev. Hansen received this revelation from the Lord:
Warning: Divine Messages To Japan

"Judgment is coming upon Japan. Japan is bound by giant deception as a thick forest. The Word of God uncompromised, used as a sword, will start to cut down the forest; but a catastrophe will strike the nation and the church will start to draw nigh unto God."

At 5:46am Tuesday morning, January 17, 1995, catastrophe struck the nation of Japan. Over 5,000 people died and 300,000 were left homeless. The city of Kobe, which many in Japan thought was quake-safe, was devastated by a killer earthquake. Newsweek magazine reported the following statements in the January 30, 1995 copy, "Hell in 20 seconds: To those in Kobe last week it must have seemed that, in just 20 seconds Japan's magnificent postwar rise to economic superpower had been reduced to an illusion. One moment they were dressed, propertied and secure; the next they were refugees shuffling threw rubble-strewn streets fretted by flame; they were lugging bundled possessions on their backs, while they discovered the corpses of loved ones and neighbors. Many Japanese were shocked to the bones not just by the tragedy but by their nation's ill-preparedness after years of government assurances about the state-of-the-art earthquake proofing."

The word of warning from God on October 8, 1994 came true!

Japan's attitude of superiority and self-reliance was shattered in less than one minute. Their trust in scientific technology turned out to be a myth. As God says in 1 Corinthians 1:19, "For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."
