CS Evaluation: Though partially at least, Dana’s dreams include a judgment and warning element, we believe that this is a secondary emphasis and that the primary purpose of his dreams is positive, hopeful and lets us know when and how this present season of testing is likely to end. The following link provides our interpretation and the proof for that view. We don’t know Dana, but he seems like a good, sincere brother. These dreams are from God. He had the first of 3 dreams in December 2019. We provide a couple of basic dream interpretation principles, then outline the dreams with the important specifics and provide some initial interpretation, then provide a Final Interpretation at the end....To Continue Reading Click Here
My Response To The Apocalyptic Predictions For America This November 2020, Dutch Sheets, Elijah List
CS Commentary: The article is apparently a summary of a podcast. It would be nice if the article referred to the ‘apocalyptic’ words that he is actually responding to – but it does not. It appears that the pastor is Dana Coverstone. We respond to Coverstone’s dreams on the link above. As to Dutch’s response, it is possible that he is responding to the misinterpretations and misplaced reactions of multitudes to Coverstone’s prophetic dreams – or to other prophetic words from people we are not familiar with, as well as to what people have heard and misinterpreted and conflated from Terry, Sadhu, and others.
All said, we like Dutch, and believe this is a good, positive, encouraging word that everyone should read and listen to. But, it is not a contradiction of anything prophets like Terry, Sadhu, or Neville have said (and neither are our more positive interpretations of Dana’s dreams) – it is merely another perspective, a complementarity, if you will. Again, read Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy for a Biblical perspective on responses and interpretation of prophecy. Our evaluation of Coverstone’s dreams is above.
Dutch’s response is the only interpretation of Dana’s dreams that we have listened to/read – if its appropriate, we may feature others next week.

The First Key To Dream Interpretation (video, right), Jennifer LeClaire, Jennifer LeClaire Ministries
CS Commentary: We agree with most of this presentation on dream interpretation. There are some good basic principles and insights here. Her insights about differences in culture are really good, but we would say that, for the most part, this is reflected in the differences between your Biblical vocabulary and your personal dream vocabulary. They will be different. We also talk extensively about the importance of context in dreams – just like any language. Jennifer addresses this towards the end of the video. She seems to consider the focus/sub-focus as the first key to dream interpretation – unless we missed something. This follows John Paul Jackson’s method. We would differ somewhat.

Must See – America’s ‘Perfect Storm’: 7 Different Storms (video, right), Bob Jones/Bonnie Jones
CS Commentary: Bob Jones passed away Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014. Original trance/vision in the 1990’s, then Bob released this video in 2010. Perfect storm was to begin sometime after Oral Roberts death. He died in 2009. Storm 1 – Government/Political. The true government of the church will rise up. Christians will begin having an authoritative voice. Storm 2 – Spiritual. People are going to diviners to find the truth. This will bring no hope. The real prophets will begin to come forth. Spiritual authority will come. Storm 3 – Financial. The evangelist will come in. You are going to begin to see the Lord’s Woodstocks [as a result of financial trauma]. Greater wealth will come into the church than ever before. Storm 4 – Social. We have had too much hierarchy and not enough relationship. Unity will come and each person will find his place. Home meetings will have an anointing. This will be where people get equipped for the harvest. Focus on building ‘barns’ – home meetings. No barns, no ability to handle the harvest. Storm 5 – Emotional. A very dangerous storm. People are going to ‘lose it.’ The home groups are to calm people’s emotions and show them the light. Storm 6 – Infirmity. Media will scare people. Media is the ‘new terrorist.’ The Saints have the say, not the devil or his people. Storm 7 – Geo-physical. Earthquakes and shaking. Believers can take authority for less death. Revelation about where to be and when to be there. There will be volcanoes and tidal waves. Natural process in the earth we can’t stop, but we can stop the death. Volcanic eruptions will affect seasons. Fungus, blights, droughts, famines. Energy can become cheap through cold fusion? We are in a time of Jeremiah 33:3 and Isaiah 48:6-7. August 2008 Vision of 3 Elders. The 2010’s were to be symbolized by a people with the faith of God, 2020’s by the rest of God. In CS’s opinion, think of these decade symbols as beginning in that decade and then continuing to move forward and increase in the life of the church. Great words from Bob, particularly around the 35:00-36:00+ part of this video. For historical reference, Billy Graham died February 21, 2018. Must see video – if you only watch one Spiritual Life video this month, this should be it!

CS Evaluation – Precious Metals? How Christians Can Respond To Current Financial Trends, Dexter P. Lyons, Charisma
CS Evaluation: In general, there is some good advice here, though we don’t agree with some of the details. Technically, the Fed is not ‘monetizing’ the debt ( ) – if it were the U.S. would be in a serious and precarious situation reminiscent of nations like Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and others which have quickly gone on to experience hyperinflation and social-economic collapse. For more, see . Silver is probably the better buy over gold for now. Many see gold continuing up, but we are more contrarians on this subject. Gold is at its highest point since 2011-2012, when it almost hit $2000 an ounce. What is has going for it: continued economic uncertainty and volatility, at least for the short term; dwindling supply; increasing demand. Depressors on the price? An economic turn for the good, increasing stock market, interest rates that turn up, and any discovery that finds more supply or increases mining potential. The production cost of gold is anywhere from about $900 to $1200/ounce, so gold could possibly fall into that range again before going higher. We feel that, medium term at least, gold is likely to be lower before it tests and exceeds $2000 again. But, only time will tell. That said, if you don’t own any physical gold it is always a good time to buy some.
CS Evaluation (see below): Prophetic Dream: Trump Catches The Big One (video, left), Bonnie Jones/Bob Jones

CS Evaluation: We don’t believe the Coronavirus economic ‘event’ will immediately lead to financial ruin. The stock market, separate from the economy and leading it by about 6 months, will come back sooner. Goldman Sachs is predicting a third quarter recovery, others sooner, or slightly later. The economy will come back in stages and recovery will be different – some businesses will thrive, others will go out of business. The world has changed, no doubt, but the consumer has always come back after crisis. Longer term, this crisis continues to set the US and other nations up for an eventual global debt explosion – but this should happen later, into the late 2020’s or 2030’s.
CS Evaluation: John Paul Jackson Prophesied About A Second Pandemic, Shawn A. Akers, Charisma
CS Evaluation: As we’ve said previously, no, this is not the End Times virus that JPJ prophesied about – a little checking would have made that clear to Charisma. According to the website JPJ founded, Streams Ministries, JPJ prophesied about an End Times virus that would be typified by red splashes or a red rash. He also prophesied about another virus before that one that would create a lot of fear and be thought to be the one to worry about. That sounds a lot like Coronavirus – but only time will tell. As we’ve shown, H1N1 in 2009 was so far a lot worse than this one in terms of infected and number of deaths. But, it is still early – and regardless, for various reasons, mostly the contagion effect and the uncertainty, Coronavirus has caused a lot more fear and panic. For more on this, see the Common Sense Interpretation section, below.
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.

CS Commentary: Season 3 currently uploaded on Amazon Prime episode by episode. All seasons available for purchase. Shades of ‘Dallas’, but probably better and with more of a ‘film’ type of feel, this series is Kevin Costner’s first. It may be the cap on a stellar career. One of the best female villains ever, played by Kelly Reilly – but is she really a villain? Only time will tell. The Dutton family tries to keep their cattle ranch in Montana from incursions of a national park, a reservation, land developers, and shark-like hedge fund managers.
