CS Commentary: Be sure to read Steve Shultz’s introduction which contains valuable information about how these prophetic predictions could play out. Jeremiah 18: 1-12 says that if God’s people pray and act correctly negative pronouncements can be lessened and positive ones can be assured.

Inward Preparation For Difficult Times, Session 3 (video, left), Terry Bennett

CS Commentary: The sessions from this conference are some of the best comprehensive explanations from Terry about what God is doing in America and the American church. The bottom line: ‘Sound discipline has been decreed’ for America. At about 1:14-15 he talks of 2020-21 being the beginning of a new level of difficult times. He says that we will face very difficult times over the next several years, but that 2020-21 will not be the ‘fullness’ of this. There will be a new release of difficult times in the governmental arena. Also economically, it will be more difficult. He then talks from Hebrews 11 and 12 about the purpose of the discipline of God and the paradoxical nature of how God answers our prayer. At about 1:50 he starts to speak about a 2002 vision in which he was caught up to heaven and shown things about God’s original intent for America. He then explains the correct interpretation of the 7 Mountains theology and the proper stance the church should have towards wealth and some of the fantastical prophecies of the last decades. He also speaks about The Judgment Seat Of Christ for leaders and a trip to hell the Lord took him on in the 1990’s. The sessions in this conference series are long, but well worth the listening for a good overview of Terry’s prophetic perspectives and views of the Christian life.

Audio: It Will All Come Crumbling Down Soon: Persecution In The US Is Near, Terry Bennett

CS Commentary: Terry gets right into the message close to the opening. First 10 minutes or so is essential; gets more practical at 55:00. At 1:03 forward he deals with the misplaced doctrine of Identification with Christ that says everything is already finished and we just have to believe it. If you just want to know what he believes will happen in the future, see 1:12 forward to the end.

Inward Preparation For Difficult Times, Session 1 (video, left), Terry Bennett

CS Commentary: This is a must view for anyone concerned about deepening their own spiritual life or about the future of America. For those who have limited time and want to get right to the meat of this message: At about the 56:00 mark he begins to talk about an encounter with Gabriel that he had in December 2001 in which the angel spoke of a 21 year time frame that would begin in 2008 and go to about 2029. He also speaks eloquently about the cross involved in true prophetic ministry, the ‘supposed’ negative nature of his own ministry, and his heart and purpose in speaking the things that he speaks. He goes on to speak about the character of true messengers of God and the present day condition of the US church. He then talks about the distinction between prophetic messages as warnings vs. concrete judgments (for more on this see Jeremiah 18; also see Evaluating Prophets & Prophecy). He then talks about how 2020-21 may be pivotal in the governmental arena of the US and explains why America is already ‘ripe’ for judgment. The relevant portion goes through at least 1:15, though listening through to the end is recommended. At 1:42, approximately, he expounds on the coming judgment to America. Terry is someone we consider a genuine, modern day prophet, and one of two people that we know of that have experienced a series of visionary prophetic ‘headlines’ from the Lord about the future of this nation. The other, the late John Paul Jackson, is featured below.

CS Commentary: There is too much to comment on here, but yes, Mt. Fuji in Japan is an active volcano – see below in Prophecy Related Articles for more. Also watch Sysco Foods and KraftHeinz Foods as possible investments in the future as inflation is likely to soar at some point. The election of Trump, in our opinion, has pushed back the eventual fulfillment of some of these headlines. We look to two events that will push them forward again: 1) whether or not Trump is reelected in 2020. If he is, events will be pushed back again, if he is not their fulfillment will be speeded up. 2) Does the United States and the US President get on the wrong side of Israel, that is, do we have any part to play in the division of Jerusalem or Israel? If we do, all bets are off and judgment is not far away.

CS Commentary: We don’t agree that there are more laughs or more of anything in this blander version of the original. Injecting Nicole Kidman probably negatively offsets the character and plot balance – the original role was not emphasized as much – plus the charisma and chemistry of the main actors is somewhere below that of the original as well.

Punisher Tries And Fails In Disappointing Second Season On Netflix, Paul Tassi, Forbes

CS Commentary: This review is right on mark up to and including the critique of the character of ‘Amy,’ who we will add is a total mis-cast featuring an actress seriously out of her depth in the part. The season might be good enough for a third season return, but if it is it will be because of the overall strength of the first season. The writing in this second season is mediocre and politically correct and just flat out irrational and circular and, ultimately, boring. The show will need to change direction and writing staff completely to survive, which it probably won’t as another right on review below, attests. Also see, Punisher Season 2 Strange Relic Of Marvel Failures On Netflix, The Ringer; Also see, Punisher Rotten Tomatoes Score Plummets

Quotes Of The Month:

On whether ‘global warming’ is a settled scientific fact:

“There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.  Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.” – Global Warming Petition Project (aka the Oregon Petition), signed by 31,487 American scientists (9,029 with Ph.D.s)
