The Calling and Commission
Early in 1985 Dr. Hansen received his first vision from the Lord, which totally changed the direction of his life and ministry. In this vision he saw himself traveling to the nations and speaking to the masses. He was shown the condition of the church and discerned that the majority of leadership were responsible for that sad condition. He became intuitively aware that God was grieved and angry over how the Shepherds had abused and raped His Bride. The Lord told him that many of the churches throughout the world had followed the example of their leaders, who are now trusting in themselves and the value system of the world more than they are trusting in God. He saw himself traveling throughout the nations of the world, exhorting the church to repent and prepare their lives for the return of Jesus Christ.
Returning from the vision, Dr. Hansen received an incredible, intense burden for the church in America and around the world. Within months, he resigned his position with the Sheriff's Department; terminated his business interests, resigned the Presidency of the Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers for Spokane County, terminated his work as a marriage counselor, put his house up for sale, and started preparing for the responsibility of helping to restore and heal the church. In August of 1985 he and his wife traveled to Singapore in obedience to the vision and commission God had given him. There he served the Lord on the pastoral staff of Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC), a Singapore Assemblies of God Church, founded and pastored by Rev. Rick Seaward. In Singapore he served as one of the pastors, as well as Director over their short-term missionary program (Gideonites), which sends teams to plant churches. That year he helped to train 90 church planting missionaries, which were then sent to three different countries where they established churches. While serving as the Senior Pastor of CCC, Nairobi, Kenya, he also served CCC Singapore for six years as the Assistant Regional Missionary Overseer for Africa. During this time he also spoke non-denominationally throughout the world with a message of righteousness and holiness.
In early 1989, the Lord spoke to Dr. Hansen through a dream. In the dream God showed him the events that the church was about to go through prior to Jesus' return. The revelation left him with an indescribable feeling of urgency and awe. For over one year he kept the revelation of what God had shown him in his heart, only sharing it occasionally with a few churches. Finally in July, 1990, God told him to record in writing the chain of events that he saw in the vision and the dream, to warn the church exactly where we are in history, the condition of the church, why God is not pleased with the church, and what the church was about to go through. He felt compelled by the Holy Spirit that the time had come to warn the church of her condition and prepare her for what God was going to allow her to go through to purify and prepare her to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
WMI was birthed by the Holy Spirit to warn the leaders, the church, and society to prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Dr. Hansen warns the nations that judgment is coming.
Dr. Hansen's objective is to warn leaders of nations of the second coming of Jesus Christ and the plagues/judgments that are coming upon those people and nations that reject Jesus Christ as Savior according to the Scriptures.
A Few Examples
- In 1992, Dr. Hansen warned Kenya that God is going to judge the nation. A spirit of rebellion followed by fighting, drought followed by famine, and a spirit of Islam sweeping the nation followed by riots. Finally, if the Christians of Kenya, especially the pastors, do not repent of their hypocrisy and develop a relationship with God, then the Christians will lose their religious freedom.
- Seven months prior to President Mobutu's fall, Dr. Hansen prophesied over public radio in East Africa that if President Mobutu failed to repent, and if the people of Zaire failed to repent, President Mobutu would be overthrown and his government would collapse, and the nation would fall. President Mobutu was chased from office, the government did collapse and the nation did fall. Today, Zaire is called The Republic of Congo.
- Between 1994 and 1996, Dr. Hansen prophesied the Asian Stock Market Crash, naming the countries.
- In April 1997, Dr. Hansen publicly prophesied that President Moi of Kenya would be re-elected in December of 1997. At that time President Moi's popularity was approximately 20% and re-election looked impossible, but it did happen.
- In March 1998, Dr. Hansen spoke in the capitals of Burundi, Rwanda and Kenya. He also met privately with the President of the Parliament of Rwanda, Joseph Sebarenzi Kabuye. They met in his office at Parliament for an hour and a half regarding the spiritual condition of the nation and its destiny.
- In March 2001, Dr. Hansen flew to New York and spoke in public meetings, as well as on television, warning of the impending 9/11 attack, stating that skyscrapers would fall, blood would flow down faces, and the people would still not repent.
- Dr. Hansen flew to the city of New Orleans three times before the hurricane Katrina hit the area, warning that judgment was coming due to the wickedness taking place in that city.
In August, 1995, the Lord moved Dr. Hansen and his family back to America where he began to prepare to warn the church and the people of the United States of God's judgment upon them and why. The Lord gave him a release to begin on September 29, 1997, when he shared the warning and prophecies on a Seattle radio station. In 1998 he was released to begin sharing with the people at large. Dr. Hansen still travels extensively internationally, sharing the warnings of God, and what the nations can do to hold back God's judgment.
