Trump Will Be President 8 More Years! (video, right), Bonnie Jones, Bob Jones
CS Commentary: Interesting prophetic word, though we are not sure we completely buy into it yet. We would like to hear an independent confirmation from another prophetic voice. That said, only time will tell. If it is true it would certainly mean that the US will be in crisis long before the end of President Trump’s second term. Why? Because it would take that sort of motivation for America to want to keep a President in office for a third term and for the nation to change the limit on a President’s 8-year term, established by the 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution. Additionally, note that it usually takes years to amend the Constitution since any new amendment must be proposed by two-thirds of Congress and ratified by three-quarters of the states, not an easy process. It took almost four years for the 22nd amendment to be ratified – about five years for the total Congressional-States process – so if this takes place it will be very unusual.

CS Commentary: Towards the end of this video Zadai shares that God told him there will be another supply shortage problem beginning around the election through Christmas and believers should have an oversupply of basic goods so they can share with their neighbors. Believers, as well as others, need to repent and turn back to God in a new way.

Difficulties To Get Much Greater Driving Us To The Cross Of Christ, Sunday Message, 8/16/20, Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: At about the 20:00 mark Terry says that difficulties in the U.S. will get more difficult over the next months and the next year or so, then will be alleviated for a time before they get even worse. About the 1:53 mark and following, Terry, based on a 2001 encounter he had where he saw the future, talks about the Death Of Hollywood and the coming of the Great Apostasy and what it will look like around the world: China, India, Russia, and especially in Europe.

CS Commentary: According to Terry, “The modern version of God’s love in the church is, you are positive with me, and you agree with me, and you tell me what I want to hear, and you never rebuke me, and you never correct me. That’s not the love of God, that’s the love of man. And God is trying to wean our hearts away from it.”
CS Evaluation, Updated 7/26/20: Literary Irony And The Positive Message To The US Church In Dana Coverstone’s Prophetic Dreams (video, above left) (Or, Why And How God Will Put An End To The Present Crisis)
CS Evaluation: Though partially at least, Dana’s dreams include a judgment and warning element, we believe that this is a secondary emphasis and that the primary purpose of his dreams is positive, hopeful and lets us know when and how this present season of testing is likely to end. The following link provides our interpretation and the proof for that view. We don’t know Dana, but he seems like a good, sincere brother. These dreams are from God. He had the first of 3 dreams in December 2019. We provide a couple of basic dream interpretation principles, then outline the dreams with the important specifics and provide some initial interpretation, then provide a Final Interpretation at the end....To Continue Reading Click Here

CS Evaluation – Precious Metals? How Christians Can Respond To Current Financial Trends, Dexter P. Lyons, Charisma
CS Evaluation: In general, there is some good advice here, though we don’t agree with some of the details. Technically, the Fed is not ‘monetizing’ the debt ( ) – if it were the U.S. would be in a serious and precarious situation reminiscent of nations like Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and others which have quickly gone on to experience hyperinflation and social-economic collapse. For more, see . Silver is probably the better buy over gold for now. Many see gold continuing up, but we are more contrarians on this subject. Gold is at its highest point since 2011-2012, when it almost hit $2000 an ounce. What is has going for it: continued economic uncertainty and volatility, at least for the short term; dwindling supply; increasing demand. Depressors on the price? An economic turn for the good, increasing stock market, interest rates that turn up, and any discovery that finds more supply or increases mining potential. The production cost of gold is anywhere from about $900 to $1200/ounce, so gold could possibly fall into that range again before going higher. We feel that, medium term at least, gold is likely to be lower before it tests and exceeds $2000 again. But, only time will tell. That said, if you don’t own any physical gold it is always a good time to buy some.
CS Evaluation (see below): Prophetic Dream: Trump Catches The Big One (video, left), Bonnie Jones/Bob Jones
CS Evaluation: We do not believe this dream is about President Trump, the economy, or the gold standard. It is about the retrieval of a destiny that has been lost because of a poor decision made about twelve years ago.

CS Evaluation: We don’t believe the Coronavirus economic ‘event’ will immediately lead to financial ruin. The stock market, separate from the economy and leading it by about 6 months, will come back sooner. Goldman Sachs is predicting a third quarter recovery, others sooner, or slightly later. The economy will come back in stages and recovery will be different – some businesses will thrive, others will go out of business. The world has changed, no doubt, but the consumer has always come back after crisis. Longer term, this crisis continues to set the US and other nations up for an eventual global debt explosion – but this should happen later, into the late 2020’s or 2030’s.
CS Evaluation: John Paul Jackson Prophesied About A Second Pandemic, Shawn A. Akers, Charisma
CS Evaluation: As we’ve said previously, no, this is not the End Times virus that JPJ prophesied about – a little checking would have made that clear to Charisma. According to the website JPJ founded, Streams Ministries, JPJ prophesied about an End Times virus that would be typified by red splashes or a red rash. He also prophesied about another virus before that one that would create a lot of fear and be thought to be the one to worry about. That sounds a lot like Coronavirus – but only time will tell. As we’ve shown, H1N1 in 2009 was so far a lot worse than this one in terms of infected and number of deaths. But, it is still early – and regardless, for various reasons, mostly the contagion effect and the uncertainty, Coronavirus has caused a lot more fear and panic. For more on this, see the Common Sense Interpretation section, below.
Michael Snyder Says John Paul Jackson’s ‘Perfect Storm’ Prophecy Is Happening Now – Is It? Shawn A. Akers, Charisma
CS Evaluation: Though there is much continued potential for Jackson’s prophecy to begin to unfold, we don’t believe that we are there yet. Snyder mentions Trump’s impeachment, worsening manufacturing numbers, and ‘plummeting global trade’ as signs. Dubious. Jackson referred to a confluence of events as evidence of the ‘perfect storm.’ As John Paul himself says in the video above in Must See Videos (see our updated commentary), it is a confluence of crises in 5 areas: economic, government, religious, war, and geo-physical. It is not just one event in each area, but many events in each area that will occur at the same time. No, the ‘Perfect Storm’ prophecy is not here yet.

The Gift Of Prophecy Vs. The Ministry Of The Prophet (video, right), Jeremiah Johnson
CS Commentary: This is a good beginning on the distinction between the gift and the office. 1 Corinthians 12-14 delineates the gift, while Jeremiah 1, 18 and 23 elaborates on the office and true ministry of the prophet. While any believer may prophesy or operate in the gift at any time, there are those who have the gift of prophecy. Of those who have the gift there are fewer who are called into the ministry of a prophet. Miriam is a type of the ministry of a prophet; Moses is a type of the office of prophet (see Numbers 12). Of those who have the ministry of prophet, there are even fewer who attain the office of prophet. Even in the office of prophet, there are distinctions between personality, function, and call. For some of this theology, see 1-2 Kings. Also see Sadhu Selvaraj’s messages on prophets and the prophetic.
