‘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, see our Global ‘Perfect Storm’ Portfolio on the CS Money Page this week, 2/16/20.

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
Quote: “From 2021 onward, great and dangerous events are going to take place in this world; it is going to be the beginning of times of great persecution and trials. Many things that were prophesied concerning the end-times would begin to take place in large-scale all over the world.”

The Coming Perfect Storm (video, left), 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.
A Call To Exodus Conference, Message 3 (video, left), Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh

Shake, Expose, Transfer, Neville Johnson, November 2014 (video, right), Unto The Lamb/You Tube
CS Commentary: According to Neville, the last ‘Blood Moon’ before the return of the Lord occurred around the time he gave this message. He also discusses a ‘visitation.’ In CS’s opinion, Neville seems to and probably misinterprets the seven year periods prophesied in the visitation as coming immediately.

CS Evaluation: In answer to the question the title proposes, in short, ‘No’. The article is by Akers, but summarizes Michael Snyder’s views.

Are These ‘Billions’ Of Locusts Threatening To Create A Horrific End-Times-Scenario In East Africa? Michael Snyder, Charisma
CS Evaluation: Is this really a ‘horrific End-Times scenario?’ First of all, he alludes to this as more proof that his theory that the ‘perfect storm’ (spoken of by prophetic figure John Paul Jackson, evaluated elsewhere on this site) is here. We do not believe this is correct for a number of good reasons…To continue reading click this link
A ‘Bomb Cyclone’ Just Hit California – Is This The Key Prophetic Sign That John Paul Jackson Warned Us About? Michael Snyder, 365 Prophetic
CS Evaluation: We live in California and at least here in Southern California, the ‘Bomb Cyclone’ was not even noticed. This, in and of itself, doesn’t necessarily mean anything – except if almost nobody notices something how can it be a ‘sign’ or a ‘warning?’ This link explains a ‘bomb cyclone’ – as does this NY Times 2 minute link – its basically nothing but a severe, fast developing winter storm, but not near as bad as a hurricane, and nothing to get upset about. I suppose it sounds alarming because of the name – but a little investigation proves otherwise. It appears to be a relatively common occurrence.
We have evaluated John Paul’s ‘Perfect Storm’ prophecy below and whether or not it is in the process of being fulfilled and noted that the ‘events’ Snyder points to are presumptuous as to its fulfillment. We should not use the prophetic or our interpretation – or misinterpretation – of it as some sort of alarmist cry that brings attention to ourselves, our political career, or articles that we want to get published. This does not serve the prophetic or the Body of Christ in general.
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.

Coronavirus Named COVID-19 (video, left), BBC News
CS Commentary: These videos might be a little technical, but are none the less, fascinating. This one explains why there has been a recent bump in virus numbers – probably nothing to be alarmed about because the bump relates to methodology, not actual increased spread – then it explains the importance of duration and efficiency of sleep in combatting viruses. The major news media just caught up with the information presented here – but, a day late.
13 Coronavirus Cases In The US – Where They Are And What You Need To Know, Evie Fordham, Fox Business
CS Coronavirus Update: As of today, 2/15/20, the coronavirus is considered a global pandemic by many, but outside of China spread and number of cases, particularly in the US, is expected to be limited – though because of the spread and secrecy in China this is not certain. Global cases are 67,192+, and still rising, with current globally reported deaths around 1527+, though there are conflicting reports and actual cases and deaths may be much higher. That said, the good news is that the R naut, the rate of spread, now seems to be declining. See this link for bi-daily updates. Part of the discrepancy of reported cases is China’s penchant for under-reporting, or in many cases, falsifying numbers. According to at least one report, China has more cases of Coronavirus than it did of SARS. SARS occurred in 2002-03. Any useful vaccine for the virus will not be ready for mass distribution for at least one year, though there is hope that two medicines already in use for HIV and Malaria might be effective now. Mortality rate presently estimated around 2%, though so far 20% of cases with outcome have resulted in death. Some experts believe the true infected rate may be as high as 100,000 which would mean that 2000 people may have died. SARS mortality rate was 10%; but, flu has a much lower mortality rate of about .5% and kills many more people a year, so control of this virus is mandatory. Flu has already infected 19 million globally this season and killed approximately 10,000. There are likely more than the reported cases/deaths of Coronavirus in some Asian countries. The Coronavirus is not expected to peak in China until April/May. The danger of future spread is primarily to Developing Nations. The US State Department has advised against all travel to China.
