Update: Terry Bennett has revised his site and no longer features written predictive prophetic words (see, An Important Message From Terry Bennett, messengersofshiloh). Therefore, many of the links to his site in the Archives of this website will no longer bring up the relevant pages. The reader is again encouraged to refer to Spiritual Life, in the sidebar, as well as Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy before using the entries on this site.

The Last Days Of America, Jim Bakker Show/You Tube
CS Commentary: This vision comes from a different perspective and is all the more remarkable because the pastor who had it does not seem to have foreknowledge of what others have shared. The revelation here is good, but the interpretation may be a little off… Continue reading 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.
What God Requires, Part 1 (video left), Neville Johnson, You Tube
CS Commentary: This appears to be a prophetic word given earlier in 2018 concerning the four nations. He prophesies destruction and famine for North Korea and blessing for the United States, declaring that Trump is God’s man to protect Israel. We see these as ‘seasonal’ prophecies that do not invalidate other prophecies Sadhu has issued regarding coming judgement on the U.S.
CS Commentary: Another perspective on one featured here before. Remember the name ‘Gold’, and ‘Stone’, a young David. This is not Trump. There seems to be a mixing of prophetic words here that may begin in contemporary times with the Supreme Court and may progress through Trump vs. Clinton to a future President or leader in America who will defeat a future America’s Goliath: a humble man who speaks few words, who leads in a darker time. Watch the sign of rain. There is much here that is hard to understand – since he may skip from a prophecy about a near time to a prophetic word about a future time – including the prophecy of cries of ‘impeachment’ which may apply to this time or a future one or both.

As Catholic Sex Scandal Unfolds, Pope Francis Looks Increasingly Blameworthy, Krumholz/Delahunty, The Federalist; Also see, Is Pope Francis The False Prophet – Or Was He Installed To Make Way For Another? Tom Horn, Charisma
CS Commentary: This Catholic theologian/historian puts rational thought to an idea CS has expressed here before – is it possible that Pope Francis, and many of the prophecies about him being the ‘False Prophet’ are symbolic in the sense that he is a type for the true false prophet-pope to come after him? This article explains why and how that could happen.

Cashless Society Coming Sometime After 2020, Sadhu Selvaraj, You Tube
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.

Common Sense Interpretation
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).
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.

How You Can Be Led By The Spirit Of God, Legacy Edition, Kenneth Hagin, Sr.
CS Commentary: This book is a classic and one of the foundational, must-read books for learning how to hear God and to be led by the Holy Spirit. Other Christian leaders like Neville Johnson and Sadhu Selvaraj have taught similar concepts regarding how to be led by the Holy Spirit. Quote: “I did not put prophets in the Church to guide the New Testament Church. My Word says, ‘As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God’ [Rom. 8:14].” In the opinion of CS, this book should be a staple in every Christian’s library.
Sword & Scimitar, Raymond Ibrahim
CS Commentary: Probably one of the most fascinating and important books on the history of Islam related to the ignorance of Western society ever written. Researched and resourced from primary Arabic and Greek sources. A must read.
The Sociopath Next Door, Martha Stout
CS Commentary: A great book for the environment of politics, because this is where a lot of the 4 out of 100 people who are psychopaths/sociopaths end up.

Quotes Of The Month:
“We are masters of our actions from the beginning up to the very end. But, in the case of our habits, we are only masters of their commencement–each particular little increase being as imperceptible as in the case of bodily infirmities. But yet our habits are voluntary, in that it was once in our power to adopt or not to adopt such or such a course of conduct.” – Aristotle
“Without virtue it is difficult to bear gracefully the honors of fortune.” – Aristotle
