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.

Bob Jones Kansas City Chief’s Prophecy, Rick’s Rant, Rick Joyner

CS Commentary: There are differences in some quarters about ‘revival’ – whether it is what’s needed, if it will come, and what will happen when and if it comes. Terry Bennett has said clearly multiple times that we are not looking for ‘revival’ but a ‘falling away.’ Others have prophesied and prayed for ‘revival’ continually, thinking that the answer for the US.

There is no question that the nation needs revival. The question is whether revival will be the answer when and if it comes. Terry’s point, we believe, if we’re not misrepresenting or misinterpreting, is that revival, when it comes, will mostly be just another deception, another tool the enemy uses to lead the church astray. So, revival could come, look good, look like the answer for a while on the surface – and not be the answer. Every major revival so far has brought some change and then faded out without achieving its goals. Considering the state of the church in America and the world, why would another one be different?

Even in Jesus’ time the crowds came because of the ‘signs and wonders.’ The true disciples stayed in the midst of not understanding and having everything shaken. Regardless of how it all plays out, it is good to remember that a disciple and a ‘son’ will follow Jesus – and that means following His entire path and where it led: to the Cross.

Summary Of Facts And Symbols Regarding Chiefs Victory Relative To ‘Revival’ Prophecy: Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers on 2/02/2020 31-20. It was the 222 win for KC coach Andy Reid and 50 years since the Chiefs won their last Super Bowl. The number 50 in Jewish life is symbolic for Jubilee, a celebration of emancipation and restoration that occurs every 50 years. Bob Jones, who gave the prophecy, died on 2/14/14, Valentine’s Day. He apparently was buried on 2/22. Billy Graham died February 21, 2018, or 2/21/2018 at the age of 99. The number 2 in Scripture is symbolic for ‘the bringing of another’ or ‘witness.’

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: 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.

CS Evaluation: 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.

CS Evaluation: 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.

CS Evaluation: 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.

Correct Theology Or Tradition?

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.

China Virus: Wuhan Resident Copes – An Inside Look, Bloomberg; Also see, Coronavirus: Death Toll Rises, BBC

CS Commentary: As of today, 2/08/20, the coronavirus is considered a global pandemic by many, but spread and number of cases, particularly in the US, is expected to be limited. Global cases are 35,000+, and still rising, with current globally reported deaths around 730, though there are conflicting reports and actual cases and deaths may be much higher. 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%. 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. There are likely more than the reported cases/deaths in some Asian countries, for example, The Philippines, which only reports 3 deaths. The US State Dept has now advised against all travel to China.

CS Commentary (updated, 1/26/20 9 pm, pct): In light of the Coronavirus, we recommend this 2011 Steven Soderbergh film on a global pandemic. Rotten Tomatoes gives it an 84% critic, and a 63% audience rating. The plot thins out some towards the end, but there is much insight on how a virus spreads, the panic it can cause, and how to protect yourself. The very end shows the ‘patient zero’ cause.
