Special Update, 9/04/20: Dana Coverstone’s Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Prophetic Dreams: What America Faces Election Day November 3 – Dream Interpretation, Seaborn Hall, Common Sense Spiritual Life
CS Commentary: This is a review of several prophecies about Trump, but also includes another prophecy about a future ‘David’ in the White House that we believe is not Trump, but a future President. Notice that Kim appears to speak of two impeachments, though he may not even realize that he is prophesying of two separate events. But, like they attempted to impeach Trump they will also attempt to impeach this future President. Note that Trump will become a praying President after he enters office, according to the prophecy – and he will serve for two terms.
Pastor John Hemans 3 Prophetic Words For America (video, left), Open Heavens Church (Australia)
CS Commentary: This is a great example of a New Testament prophetic word (1 Cor. 14:3), or what we call a Miriam type of prophecy elsewhere (See Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy). Pastor John’s word, given in June of 2020 before some of the current events taking place, is specific and encouraging to the US church and at the end, highlights the state of Wisconsin. The visions and the interpretations are pretty obvious and straight forward here and there is a sense of complementarity with Pastor Dana Coverstone’s dreams, highlighted in Editor’s Choice, below.

CS Evaluation: Chuck Pierce Prophesied Last Year About A Coming ‘Plague’, Wendy Griffith, CBN
CS Evaluation: This is the type of prophetic word that many people use to criticize or disdain prophecy, not realizing that there are many Scriptural ‘caveats’ to most prophecies (See Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy). Note that the prophecy here predicts a ‘turning’ around Passover in April and then puts an additional 40-day condition on it that takes that ‘turning’ into May. God can and will change His word relative to the church’s responses in prayer and repentance. He may say He will do good and do harm; He may say He will do harm and do good. The prophecy is also for a ‘turning’ not an eradication.
Did that ‘turning’ take place? We would say ‘yes’ even though now in August the virus is still raging and US cases are the highest ever. However, the death rate and the seriousness of CV is down substantially and therapeutic and vaccine treatments are closer.
Pulpit And Pen’s charges that “The claims are being repeated by charismatics in the wake of our post, Coronavirus is God’s Plague Upon Charismatics. Simply put, no charismatic prophet has prophesied anything relating to coronavirus accurately, their prophecies all contradict, and no faith-healer has healed a single person of the virus.”
Let’s take their charges one by one…To Continue Reading See This Link

Jesus Visited Kevin Zadai For 5 Hours – This Is What He Said (video, right), Sid Roth It’s Supernatural
CS Commentary: Towards the end of this video Zadai shares that God told him there will be another supply shortage problem beginning around the election through Christmas and believers should have an oversupply of basic goods so they can share with their neighbors. Believers, as well as others, need to repent and turn back to God in a new way.
I Am Going To Cause The Church To Tremble Again, Lana Vawser, Elijah List
Australian Pastor Prophecies Trump Will Win Second Term, Stephen Strang, Charisma
The Angel Said: “Release The Terms!”, Wendy M. Allen, Elijah List
CS Commentary: This is a short, prophetic dream about something that is coming to the whole earth. Note that the context of the dream is clear: the dreamer sees the entire earth from space. She then sees an angel. The angel is dressed like a warrior, a gladiator. The angel has an open book, a Biblical motif (Revelation 10). All of this establishes the dream as prophetic and the context and focus/address of the dream as about the entire world.

CS Commentary/Synopsis: Around 1:03 or before begins talking about the contrast between ministry and calling and the difference between position and God-ordained leadership. Ministry may mean further hardship and sacrifice. We have come to the threshing floor and to the Cross – to death to self.
1:11 We have been promised a difficult life and tribulations. We have the wrong gospel if we think that Christ just loves everybody. In this life, unless we get to Him, we will never know the love of God. About 1:17 he starts expositing Ephesians 3. (For full commentary/synopsis see this link)

CS Commentary: At about the 20:00 mark Terry says that difficulties in the U.S. will get more difficult over the next months and the next year or so, then will be alleviated for a time before they get even worse. About the 1:53 mark and following, Terry, based on a 2001 encounter he had where he saw the future, talks about the Death Of Hollywood and the coming of the Great Apostasy and what it will look like around the world: China, India, Russia, and especially in Europe.

CS Evaluation: Though partially at least, Dana’s dreams include a judgment and warning element, we believe that this is a secondary emphasis and that the primary purpose of his dreams is positive, hopeful and lets us know when and how this present season of testing is likely to end. The following link provides our interpretation and the proof for that view. We don’t know Dana, but he seems like a good, sincere brother. These dreams are from God. He had the first of 3 dreams in December 2019. We provide a couple of basic dream interpretation principles, then outline the dreams with the important specifics and provide some initial interpretation, then provide a Final Interpretation at the end....To Continue Reading Click Here

CS Evaluation – Precious Metals? How Christians Can Respond To Current Financial Trends, Dexter P. Lyons, Charisma
CS Evaluation: In general, there is some good advice here, though we don’t agree with some of the details. Technically, the Fed is not ‘monetizing’ the debt ( ) – if it were the U.S. would be in a serious and precarious situation reminiscent of nations like Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and others which have quickly gone on to experience hyperinflation and social-economic collapse. For more, see . Silver is probably the better buy over gold for now. Many see gold continuing up, but we are more contrarians on this subject. Gold is at its highest point since 2011-2012, when it almost hit $2000 an ounce. What is has going for it: continued economic uncertainty and volatility, at least for the short term; dwindling supply; increasing demand. Depressors on the price? An economic turn for the good, increasing stock market, interest rates that turn up, and any discovery that finds more supply or increases mining potential. The production cost of gold is anywhere from about $900 to $1200/ounce, so gold could possibly fall into that range again before going higher. We feel that, medium term at least, gold is likely to be lower before it tests and exceeds $2000 again. But, only time will tell. That said, if you don’t own any physical gold it is always a good time to buy some.
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 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:
“We did every possible thing wrong. Sixty million Americans got H1N1 in that period of time [2009, during the Obama-Biden Administration], and it is just purely a fortuity that this isn’t one of the great mass-casualty events in American history. [It] had nothing to do with us doing anything right; just had to do with luck. If anyone thinks that can’t happen again, they don’t have to go back to 1918. Just go back to 2009, 2010. Imagine a virus with a different lethality, and you can just do the math.” — Former Biden chief of staff Ron Klain, at Texas A&M, 2019
