2015: Rick Joyner Says It Is Time To Get Out Of CA, Jim Bakker Show
CS Evaluation: Hard to know how to interpret this one, but we would say that it is not yet time to get out of CA unless God has made that abundantly clear to you. How would he do that? First, through relationship and the still small voice of the Spirit (see Books section, below). Second, if you miss the first through a dream or some other intervening experience (but be careful here, they are easily misinterpreted – see Dreams section, below). CS believes that the time to get out of CA may also be the time a lot of people want to get out of the USA and that this is still years ahead of us at present. Of course, this was given back in 2015 – so one could view that favorably or unfavorably, we suppose :). Again, we could be wrong and if our view changes we will let you know.
CS Evaluation: Rick’s comments on Sadhu are good; those of us who have heard Sadhu in person annually for over a decade now know him to be a genuine prophet and a Man of God.
CS disagrees slightly with Joyner’s use of Matthew 18 relative to general, but kind and compassionate – and as Joyner references, restrained – criticism of leaders. Criticism should always be done respectfully, but Matthew 18 appears to address private sin or faults that are hidden from the church, therefore it says, “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector” (Matt. 18:17 NAS95). Joyner is speaking relative to leader to leader criticism of theological opinions or practice. Here it is much better protocol for one leader to take another aside and express disagreement privately.
However, when any leader speaks publicly we all have the right – and the responsibility – to evaluate such comments in light of known Scripture. As it says in Acts, the Bereans took Paul’s words to heart and examined the Scriptures to see if they were true (Acts 17:11).
CS Evaluation: CS does not agree with Bolz’s view in the above link.
Bolz seems to conflate the issue of ‘judgment prophecy’ with the overall concept of judgment in the NT in this clip, so what he is saying about the concept is anything but clear. However, if Bolz is saying – as he appears to do – that the concept of either judgment prophecy or judgment as a general concept no longer applies in the NT era, why is he wrong?

How To Respond To A Direction Dream, John E. Thomas, Stream Ministries
CS Evaluation: CS does not agree with the above link, updated 6/26/18
Is there really such a thing as a Direction Dream, as the author assumes? Maybe. But, ‘Direction Dreams,’ like the ones Joseph (Mary’s fiance/husband) had were clear, and largely in life threatening situations. Additionally, an angel appeared in these dreams, giving them a supernatural quality. That is how Joseph knew he was to act immediately.
Unless your dream is at the same level of the supernatural and an angel – not something symbolic, but clearly an angel – has appeared to you in a dream, you should not be rushing off anywhere. Most dreams give you time to prayerfully consider your action. To continue see this link.

Why Vulnerability Is Your Greatest Strength (video, left), Dr. Brene Brown
CS Commentary: We don’t know all that Brown thinks or believes – and we likely don’t agree with it all, regardless – but what we like about her is that she is real, relatable, vulnerable, and always moving forward – and she shows the average person how they can be and do the same. Great words.

Shame Is Lethal, Dr. Brene Brown (video, left), Oprah Winfrey Network, You Tube
CS Commentary On Brene Brown Videos: it may be confusing to some of you that we are featuring Brene Brown talks on the psychological dynamics in relationships, especially when we are not that familiar with her and do not know her spiritual views. However, the Bible speaks of both Samuel and Jesus as to their development in the eyes of both God and man. 1 John 4 is clear that you cannot love God who you do not see unless you can love your brother who you do see. We have to be human in its fullness before we can truly be spiritual. Brene is good at breaking down the inner dynamics that help us learn to love ourselves and others and become fully human.

California ‘God Quake’ Prophecy (video, right), Charlie Shamp, Destiny Encounters/You Tube
CS Commentary: This prophecy was initially recorded September 22, 2017. There actually was a place called Peru, CA. It apparently no longer exists. See here. It was a miner’s camp in Northern CA in the county of El Dorado. El Dorado County is east of Sacramento in the Sierra Nevada area of the Gold Country, and includes Lake Tahoe…….To continue reading, see here.
CS Commentary: Taylor sees mass arrests sometime after the mid-terms. However, some of what he prophesies is strangely reminiscent of QAnon’s predictions – in fact he mentions Q , as if he is genuine – so Taylor’s prophecies at this point need to be taken with a grain of salt. Taylor may be conflating what the Holy Spirit is speaking to him with what he knows and believes in the natural at this point, so depending on a word by word fulfillment of his predictions may prove fruitless, or even dangerous. Taylor actually seems to believe that McCain was executed – so caveat emptor here, as well. CS believes that some of Taylor’s natural beliefs are erroneous – 1 Thes 5:19-22 should be applied strenuously to his prophecies at this point.

The Arising Of The False Prophet, Terry Bennett
Quote: “We are going to get judgment to the point that you will want to leave, because we have asked God for time to repent and He has given it, and yet we have refused to go there as a nation. The measure of repentance that is going on is good for bringing out a remnant, but it is not enough to save a nation…we will see such death in this nation on so many realms and scales. Believe me, you are going to be seen as the enemy. Everybody’s agenda is against God, including most of the church.”
CS Commentary: Prophecy starts at about the 9:00 minute mark.

CS Commentary: This video, in our opinion, misinterprets this set of prophecies as being about Jared Kushner, but there is more reason to believe that they are concerning a future US leader that arises in a time of crisis. The last 5 minutes or so of the video is superfluous.
