Big Earthquakes Becoming More Frequent, Becky Oskin, Live Science/CBS

Quote: “The average rate of big earthquakes — those larger than magnitude 7 — has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010 — a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers report.” But, also see, Average Number of Major Earthquakes Increasing Slightly in the 2000’s, johnstonsarchive

Historical Earthquakes In CA

Common Sense Commentary: Note that the commentator in the video say things like, “We do not expect this to happen in our lifetimes,” and “There is no indication that there is any present danger.” Signs something is about to happen: the commentator suggests watching the movie, “Pompei,” and that there would be weeks of warning leading up to the big volcanic explosion.

CS Evaluation

Rick Joyner Evaluates Prophet Sadhu Selvaraj And Discusses How To Evaluate Anyone, You Tube

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).

Shawn Bolz Says That No Judgment Prophecy Is From God , Charisma

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.
