Be Prepared: The Next Great Pandemic As The Lord Shared It With Me (video, right), Sadhu Selvaraj, Digital Workshop

CS Commentary: Again, he clearly says that ‘by the time’ a vaccine for the Coronavirus is discovered that this new virus will come to sting. According to Sadhu, it will cause a great amount of fatalities. It should be noted that in another message around this time Sadhu also said clearly that he does not know when the new pandemic will come – see comments on video below in Editor’s Choice for more. Regardless, this is something to repent and pray to the Lord about – that He would delay the coming of this pandemic.

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…

Sadhu Selvaraj Clarifies His ‘Coming Plague Prophecy’ And Shares A Visitation From The Apostle Paul And Moses (video, right), Digital Workshop

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.

‘Headlines From Heaven’ Related To ‘The Perfect Storm’ (video, left), John Paul Jackson, carlo sando

CS Commentary: JPJ says clearly that he does not know for sure whether these headlines relate to ‘The Perfect Storm’ or not – but they might.

Two Minutes With JPJ: Where Are We In ‘The Perfect Storm?” The Eye Of The Hurricane, (video, right), John Paul Jackson, Tru News/Real Thing TV

CS Commentary: Here, we again see the difficulty related to interpretive attempts, especially related to timing. JPJ pinpoints 2015 as the date to come out of the ‘eye’, but that has obviously been ‘pushed back.’ More than one prophet is now pointing to 2021-22. However, we must always allow for the effects of intercession and repentance from God’s people, and even more, the grace and mercy of God. For more on investment strategy in crisis, see our Global ‘Perfect Storm’ Portfolio.

Prophecy Review: The Coming Perfect Storm, Full Version (video, left), John Paul Jackson, Streams Ministries

CS Commentary on Prophecy Review: JPJ first delivered the word in July of 2008. It was sent out to his mail list in August 2008. The video appears to be made later in 2008, but not posted till years later. JPJ indicates that most of the word will begin to take place….To continue reading click this link

The Coming Perfect Storm (video,right), John Paul Jackson, Cheesman Romero/Jim Bakker Show

CS Commentary: In this important video, we get a clear explanation of exactly what ‘the coming Perfect Storm’ involves: the perfect alignment of ‘five types of events that had never happened before.’ The Perfect Storm prophecy regards multiple things in each of the five areas – Religion, Politics, Economics, War, and Geophysical – and is a global event. JPJ describes it as a ‘ten year period of escalation.’ But then he puts the dates of 2010 to 2020 on it. These dates have been pushed back in CS’s opinion. As to that phenomenon and the attacks of ‘false prophecy’ relative to this that some will erroneously make we refer the reader to Evaluating Prophets And Prophecy.

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: Christian Financial Expert – Do March’s Economic Numbers Point To Financial Ruin? Dan Celia, Charisma

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.

Predictions about the Future Price of Gold – see The Perfect Storm Commentary in Must See Videos above.

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.

Must See – They Believed The End Times Were Imminent – The ATF-FBI Didn’t Like That, Retro Report

CS Commentary: Waco was months following Ruby Ridge. The Netflix series, Waco (see trailer below), based on two non-fiction books by participants on opposite sides, tells quite a different story than some of the conclusions stated in this video. Be sure to listen to the portion just after 11:00 – “all that is needed for real carnage to happen out there, is another Waco, a spark, something that will light the movement on fire.” Why was the FBI forced to back down in the Nevada range war of 2014? Well, they were forced to make some procedural changes after both Ruby Ridge and Waco in the early 1990’s. However, the primary impediment that prevented them from strong-arming Nevada ranchers? – Armed citizens organized in militias.

CS Commentary: Based on two non-fiction books by participants from opposite sides this is a fact-based, informative and riveting series based on the 1993 siege of Branch Davidians led by self-proclaimed Messiah David Koresh. Similar to watching a horrendous train wreck, once you start it you can’t take your eyes off of the events as they unfold. The writers make some concrete choices of events that others say remain shrouded. Its great writing presented by an equally great cast. Challenge: try not to be enraged and scared by the Federal government and the FBI. These are events – along with Ruby Ridge, which happened months before this – with which every American should be familiar. CS Grade: A (where A is the highest grade possible)
