What Is The ‘Door’? The Angel At The Gate (video, left), Charlie Shamp, Destiny Encounters
CS Commentary: Really good word from Charlie for this time. What is the ‘door’? Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold I stand at the door and knock…”. Verses later we read, “And I saw a door opened in heaven.” There is a door open to us of greater grace (James 4), and greater intimacy. There is a cost (Rev. 3:18-20) – seeking deeper relationship with Jesus in time hidden away with Him. Let us agree with Charlie’s prayer that God will give us grace to go through it.

Must Hear – New Direction For This Season: Since When Did The Church Become A Meeting? (audio only, click this link) Terry Bennett, 5/10/20, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: Terry’s message starts a little after 30:00. What we are experiencing now is a ‘Baby Pandemic.’ This is not what Terry has previously seen where the church will not be able to meet. That will be brought on by persecution of the church in the US. To continue reading commentary/synopsis see here

Special Update/Must See – The Meaning Of The Present Covid-19 Crisis Relative To What Is Coming The Next Decade (video, left), Sunday Service 4/19/20, Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: This message and the video to the right complement each other. The whole message is good and worth listening to but the relevant portion directed to Coronavirus, the meaning of this crisis, and the church, on the video at left, begins around 1:28 (1 hour, 28 minutes in). At 1:35: There is a greater shaking coming…To continue reading see this link…
CS Commentary: Note that Sadhu now says that he does not know when this second more terrifying plague is coming. Previously he said it was coming before a vaccine for the Covid-19 could be found. We attribute this to prophetic protocol: the Lord may ask true prophets to say things for the purpose of motivating people to repentance and action, hoping that their actions will enable Him to delay judgement (Jer. 18). This is not misinterpretation or prophetic error, though those do occur among less mature or false prophets.
Signs Of The Times: The Ministry Of Elijah, 2/5 2013 (video, left), Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: According to Terry, the Lord told him that it will only be in the darkest of times that the glory of the Lord will arise in the USA. There will be no election solution for the US. Before this time of Coronavirus crisis, in 2013, Terry speaks of many of the events unfolding in our nation today –
Around 15;00: ‘If you can feel it, you are meant to see it.’ Feeling is one of the spiritual senses, seeing is another. We are at the beginning (in 2013) of the rise of Haman and the plot to take down America and to persecute the church. At 16:00 he starts the bulk of the message on 1 Kings. At 21:00 he talks about how we project our own ideas on to Biblical characters and the Bible. Elijah is Elijah. Elijah himself will return. To run is to see God replace you. Elijah found that out the hard way. Salvation is not the end or the goal, just part of the way back. A wise Master Builder is after original intent – first purpose, the Bride of Christ. When God has His kind, He will return. At 34:30 – so many doctrines going on in the church that have nothing to do with God. At 38:00 – we are about to see the true prophetic ministry arise again in the earth. What has been going on so far is false. The true prophetic ministry always confronts the old ministry, which has compromise and mixture. God never wants too many. Gideon had too many. At 47:00 – God will start by having the Spirit of Elijah confront the false prophets within the church. It is going to begin within the church. The answer for this hour is the ministry of Divine Authority back in the earth. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Elijah appears.
At 1:02 – When God interrupts us, He is testing us, to see if we want what we are praying for. 1:05 – A vision: Do you give up your name? What’s in a name? Your identity. At the name of Jesus every knee bows and every tongue confesses. God is not calling us to the possible, but to the impossible. The beginning of all true ministry is the burden of the Lord. God must break our own reputation and our desire to make a name for ourselves.

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 Stock Markets, Money And The Bible, Michael Brown, Charisma
CS Evaluation: A pretty one-sided treatment of money and investing, and fear-based relative to the stock markets. Proverbs also has plenty of other wealth advice like ‘throw your seed on many waters’, etc.

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.

Quotes Of The Month:
To try to defeat an irrational supposition – especially when it is firmly held by its proponents – with a rational explanation is virtually impossible. Any information that does not correspond with the conspiracy theorists’ preferred social, political, or ethnic narrative is ipso facto false. Social scientists have described such theories as having a “self-sealing quality” that makes them “particularly immune to challenge.” — Deborah Lipstadt, Antisemitism Here and Now, 2019 p. 7-8.
