CS Commentary: Biblical or not? What about Romans 6? Know, consider or believe, yield, and obey – or as Robbins says, change your physiology. Obeying is the missing piece for most of us Christians but something Robbins has been speaking of for years – just using different language.

Update: 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.

John Paul Jackson Prophetic Headlines For 2020 (video, left), You Tube

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.

Movies:

Bumblebee, Film Review, Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: We’d have to give a C+ to the writing, but Hailee Steinfield’s always great performance lifts the film to a B-. As far as the supporting cast goes: What were they thinking? This is no ET, as much as the writer and the director try to aspire to that level. 

Mary Poppins Returns, Film Review, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: This review is way too positive from our perspective. Blunt was overly stern and serious throughout and we all kept waiting for just one catchy song – it never came. Best (genuine) film musicals of the last decade: The Greatest Showman, and Moulin Rouge, probably in that order. If you add theater, we’d include Mama Mia, though the film just didn’t rise to the Broadway version.

TV:

House Of Cards, Season 6, TV Review, Daniel Feinberg, Hollywood Reporter

CS Commentary: This reviewer didn’t see the whole series. The first half is as good as any through the series and its true, you don’t miss Frank (Kevin Spacey). But, then it devolves into a confusing, complex mess of sub-plots and truncated scenes that leave you wondering if you need to be a genius to follow the plot. Then you not only miss Spacey, but the good writing team that apparently came with him. It all comes together at the end – but very unsatisfactorily.

Quotes Of The Month:

[On The Drama Triangle, featured above]

“It is most difficult for someone in the persecutor role to take responsibility for the way they hurt others. In their mind, others deserve what they get. These warring individuals tend to see themselves as having to constantly fight for survival. Theirs is a constant struggle to protect themselves in what they perceive as a hostile world.” – Lynne Forrest

“A rescuer’s greatest fear is that they will end up alone. They believe that their total value comes from how much they do for others. It’s difficult for them to see their worth beyond what they have to offer in the way of “stuff” or “service.” They believe, “If you need me, you won’t leave me.” They scramble to make themselves indispensable in order to avoid abandonment.” – Lynne Forrest

“Victims deny both their problems solving abilities and their potential for self-generated power. This doesn’t prevent them from feeling highly resentful towards those on whom they depend. As much as they insist on being taken care of by their primary rescuers, they nonetheless do not appreciate being reminded of their inadequacy.” – Lynne Forrest
