Word of The Lord on US Presidential Election: Sadhu Selvaraj, Christian Missionary Fellowship International, Maryland
CS Commentary: May explain why Trump lost the election. This video, recorded in October 2020, explains why Trump lost the election. Sadhu explains two encounters he had about the 2020 US elections. At about 20:00 forward on the video it seems apparent that the enemy was allowed to thwart the election because the prayers of the church were not enough to push through God’s will for Trump to be elected. At 29:00 forward, Sadhu tells the US that this is ‘one last chance.’
CS Commentary: Terry apologizes for getting the election prediction wrong, even though, from our perspective and knowledge he never emphatically said or declared that the Lord has said that Trump would be elected. On one occasion what he said was that Jesus told him Trump would win in a landslide but that it could be stolen and the church needed to pray.

Coronavirus Prophetic Update
CS Commentary/Synopsis (including Sadhu’s word for the nations 2021, click this link): The first 50 minutes or so of this video concerns the Coronavirus of 2020. We will finish the synopsis on this video next week.
Around 20:00 message starts; around 30:00 Sadhu shares what the Lord told him about the Covid vaccine. Many ask for his opinion on it, so he sought the Lord in prayer: the Lord clearly showed him that the vaccine is not the ‘mark of the Beast,’ as some Christians have apparently been told. The Lord spoke to Sadhu from Revelation 13. Around 47:00, ‘not all vaccines are bad. Use your wisdom and make your own choice.’ The vaccine is voluntary, the mark of the Beast will be forced on everyone… [To continue reading and for Synopsis and Sadhu’s word for the nations 2021 click here]

Dana Coverstone’s Franklin Dream – The American Experiment–Dream Interpretation, Seaborn Hall, Common Sense Spiritual Life
CS Evaluation: Though partially at least, Dana’s first two 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
Dana Coverstone – The Data Dream (video, left), Dana Coverstone
CS Commentary: Dana says that he had this dream over ‘several nights.’ See our previous interpretations for the significance of one dream over several nights. This may affect any interpretation, especially relative to timing and fulfillment.
The interpretation of this dream is hopeful, but also sobering. We will just sum it up here and later will break down the interpretation section by section: The data network stands for the… To Continue Click on this Link (also see this link for, What Happens In A Contested Election?)
Dream Interpretation, Updated 10/31/20, Dana Coverstone’s Fifth Prophetic Dream: A New Era In The Church & World – Beginning In October (video on linked page), Seaborn Hall, Common Sense Spiritual Life
CS Commentary, 10/31/20 – This fifth prophetic dream of Dana’s is worth reviewing, since it specifically points out the 2nd and 3rd weeks of October, a period that we just passed. As we note in the Red Box highlight above, Dana’s fifth dream appears to point to the Amy Coney Barrett Supreme Court appointment and confirmation and the Hunter-Joe Biden ‘pay for play’ scandal (see our Politics Page for more). The ‘rock thrown into the pond’ causes ripples that increase with intensity as time lengthens, so we would expect further turmoil and unrest into November – as Dana’s sixth through eighth dreams seem to suggest. The dream also specifically points to Halloween, October 31, or today as a significant date. We would also encourage the reader to review Dana’s Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth prophetic dreams, below.
Special Update, 9/05/20: Dana Coverstone’s Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Prophetic Dreams: What America Faces Election Day November 3 – The Destruction Of The Democratic Party (Dream Interpretation), Seaborn Hall, Common Sense Spiritual Life
CS Commentary: ‘The Wolves’ – We don’t offer an interpretation of this dream because the meaning is obvious and Dana’s comments at the end clarify the dream more. The dream’s prophetic predictions also complement those of other prophets, like Terry Bennett and Sadhu Selvaraj, seen elsewhere on this site, particularly our Spiritual LIfe-Interpretation Page.

CS Commentary: What all of the above info on the OBOR Initiative means is that from 2030 to 2050, China will have increasing ability to provide for its burgeoning Middle Class, increasing independence on the global stage (from trade dependence on the US), increasing military and naval strength and reach and increasing ability to challenge a weakened United States, not only for Pacific supremacy, but for global military dominance. Bottom Line? If economic and military conditioning and strength plateaus or decreases in the US from where they are at present, China may be able to not only challenge, but defeat the United States economically and militarily on the world stage anytime from 2030 forward. A Biden-Harris inauguration and administration weakens the U.S. immediately and comprehensively, as to leadership, resolve, and maintenance of military prowess.

Common Sense Interpretation
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

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, 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.
