SID: You know, I wish you could hear the conversations I have with my guests during break time. It’s some of the best stuff we do is during that time. For instance, Hank said to me during the break, accuracy isn’t the only barometer to measure a prophet by because if you remember it was Balim prophesied accurately. But so what is it besides accuracy, you were telling me, God spoke to you?
HANK: Balim was a very accurate false prophet. Okay. The Lord said this me. He said, accuracy, yes, is important, but authority. And when Jesus spoke, they didn’t say, who is this that speaks with such accuracy. They said, who is this that speaks with such authority. And I believe that you’ll be able to feel on the prophecies that are given the authority that which comes from Heaven, prophets of the Lord versus prophets of the land. There is a difference.
SID: Okay. Obamacare, what did God tell you about it?
HANK: Well one of the prophecies that the Lord gave is that Obamacare, it will be repealed. Now when that’s going to happen, I’m not sure. But I will say this. Will it be repealed? Yes. That was the prophecy. Does that mean that it’s going to be overthrown? Does it mean that there’s going to be something else in its place? All I know is however it shakes out, it will be repealed.
SID: What about you were really grieved when the same-sex marriage was approved by the Supreme Court and God spoke to you about that.
HANK: Yeah. What I was saying, I spent two days with the Lord and I said, “God, what is wrong?” And I said, “Lord, what were you thinking?” He said, well, he said “Hank, obviously the White House knew the outcome” just like God did because they had the lights that shown with the colors of the rainbow. But I said, “Lord.”
SID: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I hope you caught that what he just said. They knew before the public knew. They had everything set up for those colors.
HANK: And so I said, “Lord,” I said, “People are calling me on the phone saying, ‘America is now finished.’” I said, “God, what do you say about this? What do you think?” And you know what God said to me? He surprised me, Sid. I said, “Lord, what did you do?” He said, “I turned and I looked at the mercy seat and I remembered my covenant that I have with my son Jesus Christ.” You see, what overcomes evil? The Bible says it’s good that overcomes evil. It’s the goodness of God that leads men to repent. God doesn’t like certain things. But it’s his goodness that will lead men to repentance. That’s why Jesus went about doing good, Acts 10:38, in healing all that were repressed of the devil. The Spirit of God says, “Why do you fear? What is about those in this earth that at this time that are fearing,” says the Lord. “Why do you fear North Korea? Why do you fear Russia? Why do you fear those who desire to come against the apple of my eye, Israel? For God says, do you think that I have lost control? For I tell you in this time that I have an arsenal, a host that is standing upon the horizon of this planet that are ready to shift things in favor of me and of the risen Christ Jesus. Do you not understand that in this moment of time that this earth is being awakened to my goodness and to my power, and to my Glory? For my Glory, yes, it shall come and it shall overcome the darkness and you will see the manifestations of my power in unusual ways and unusual places.” And God says, “It shall deal and grab a hold of the spirit of fear by its neck, for it shall lose control because of my goodness and my glory that are coming upon this earth.”
SID: So give me some advice. You’re watching CNN, you’re watching Fox, you’re watching news, you’re talking to most Christians. You’re listening to most prophets and it sounds like it’s the end of the world. It sounds like the worst times. It sounds like everyone is going to be beheaded by ISIS. How should we react? What should we do?
HANK: Well Jesus said it. He said, Luke 21, he said, “Men’s hearts are going to fail because they’re looking at the things that are coming here after the earth.” This is where prophets have to be careful and here in the body of Christ. We can’t spend all of our time listening to the news report and getting the reports of this realm. We’ve got to start going up higher and getting the perspective of God. That’s why Moses had to go above the dark cloud. But here’s the thing. Matthew 24, people quote that all the time. Even the disciples were saying, once we enter the age, you know, Jesus said there will be wars, rumors of wars, nations in perplexity, earthquakes in various places. And then he said, “But the end is not yet.” But he says something in Verse 14 that we completely pass over. He says, “This Gospel of the good news will promote my good. This Gospel of my kingdom, the good news of my kingdom shall be preached as a witness.” What witness? The witness of the demonstration of the power of God mixed with the good news of God. Then the end shall come. We need to promote his good. We need to declare his goodness. His proclamation and his goodness go together. For example—
SID: What do you mean by proclamation and goodness?
HANK: Well Jesus went into the temple, Luke 4:18. He said, he proclaimed, “The spirit of the Lord God is upon me.” He proclaimed it. He said it. We have to say it. He said, “He’s anointed me”, what, “to preach the Gospel,” there’s the good news again, “to the poor.” When Moses wanted to see the Glory, Exodus 33:18, the next verse, God said, “I’ll cause my goodness. I’ll proclaim and cause my goodness to pass before thee.” There is something that God does when we start declaring his goodness. For example, the Lord said, “Quick cursing America. Bless America.” I remember one time, Sid, I was praying in my brown, at that time I had a brown sofa. And the curtains began to blow and there was an aroma that filled, you know how the Bibles call in the Rose of Sharon, the smell like a rose smell, beautiful smell. The curtains began to blow. Jesus walked in. And I tell you, he put his hand on my shoulders and I buried my face in the couch. I was so afraid and I trembled like a young child. I was, and it felt like I was out of control. He put his hands on me. He said, “I called you to be a prophet to this nation. I called you to be a prophet to the nations.” But he said, “I want you to understand about America, Hank.” And he held out his hand and he said, “I still hold in my hand the sands and the prayers, and the tears of your forefathers, and the sands that are soaked with the tears and the prayers of your forefathers. I still hold them in my hand.” You see, God is looking at this nation and the earth from a whole different perspective. He’s wanting to bring his good that overcomes the evil. He’s wanting to bring his Glory. You know one of the ways to bring his Glory is through, again, proclamation, proclamation and goodness to the Lord.
SID: How about the reverse? If you proclaim doom and gloom, and fear.
SID: You bring that.
HANK: That’s why we’re seeing what we’re seeing on the earth today, people going the way of fear. And what it’s doing, and God even spoke one day and he said these words, and I want you to hear what he said. He said, “Why are they stealing the future from the children of this generation and the next?” It gives them no hope. It gives them no future when you tell them that, you know, there’s no good any more. Everything is just going to go bad. Well if that’s the case, then why doesn’t the Lord come for us? It’s because he has a plan. Listen, Isaiah, Chapter 9, Verse 6, let me quote this. It says, “Unto us a child is born,” talking about our Messiah. “Unto us a son is given. The government, the kingdom shall be upon his shoulders.” And it says, “And of this kingdom that’s on his shoulders, it shall increase” As long as God’s church is here in the earth, we don’t need to go anywhere. We don’t need to be afraid. It’s going to continually increase. And the Bible says in Verse 7 of Isaiah 9, “It will have no end.”
SID: When we come back, I’m going to ask Hank what he sees for 2016.
