CS Commentary: This appears to be an amalgamation of different prophetic words from different times, the ‘David’ word about a future President, not Trump, then the word at the end about Trump.

CS Evaluation: Phil Johnson Adamant That Bill Wiese Did Not Go To Hell (video, right), Wretched

CS Evaluation: There should be better challenges by the interviewer in this discussion. There are many problems with Johnson’s arguments here. First, how does Phil Johnson, executive director of John McArthur’s Grace Community Church radio ministry and editor of his books, know that if you go to hell you would not come back? Where is the written rule? It is certainly not anywhere in Scripture, in fact, doesn’t tradition and Scripture hold that Jesus visited hell during the time of His death and resurrection? So, Jesus visited hell and came back and the Bible calls believers His brothers (Heb 1-4), so wouldn’t that imply that the same experience, on some level, might be open to all of us?

CS Commentary: JPJ talks about color, muted colors, and black and white in dreams and what it means. Not remembering color in a dream is different from there not being color in a dream. A lot of great insights here and he answers some perceptive questions from students, including how much of his insight comes from revelation versus study and research.

Must See – Dreams & Mysteries: The Mystery Of The Gift Of Revelation (video, right), John Paul Jackson, Dreams & Mysteries

CS Commentary: John Paul Jackson died a few years ago prematurely at the young age of 64, from pneumonia. He says some great things here: ‘Everyone can hear from God but many do not perceive it.’ How ‘revelatory gifts’ can lead into ‘prophetic gifts.’ There are ‘different levels of gifting.’ What is a prophetic gift? How the gift of ‘revelation’ is the same as the ‘gift of prophecy.’

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.

Quotes Of The Month:

“The excessive skepticism of many liberal theologians [to the Divinity of Jesus Christ] stems not from a careful evaluation of the available data, but from an enormous predisposition against the supernatural.” – Yale archaeologist and professor, Millard Burrows
