President Trump Is Like Cyrus – And Similar To Richard Nixon, Here’s How (video, left), Sadhu Selveraj, Jim Bakker Show/The Kingdom of Heaven Is Coming
CS Commentary: Note the sly way that Sadhu reports about President Trump’s destiny. He says that his destiny is to help Israel and it is a similar destiny to that of Richard Nixon’s who suffered the Watergate scandal because his destiny was also to help Israel (which he did by supplying weapons before the Yom Kippur War). Does this mean that eventually President Trump may face a scandal similar to Watergate that could cut short his Presidency? Sadhu does not finish the thought and the narrators let it pass without the question. Sadhu further compares Trump’s destiny to that of Esther and notes that the destiny of the USA is ‘within JerUSAlem.’

We Must Reintroduce The True Supernatural Life Of God To The Church: Three Things The Church Must Do For America (video, left), Sadhu Selvaraj, Jim Bakker Show/The Kingdom Of Heaven Is Coming
CS Commentary: A short summary – 1) Pray for the President, 2) Pray for Congress, 3) White House, Capitol, and Supreme Court must be cleansed.
God has given America a respite of four years through President Trump. Part of the reason he was put in office was to ‘clean and purify the nation’. In addition to the summary above, Sadhu’s implication is that it is necessary that every area of the government be turned around and cleaned out – so, to us, it is unclear at this point (7/16/19) whether or not the church or the nation has fulfilled God’s requirements. Based on Sadhu’s recent comments elsewhere, it is questionable. America should not assume that just because the economy is going well and the Democrats appear to be in disarray at present that Trump will be re-elected. The USA’s hope – other than continued prayer and repentance over the next year – is the grace and mercy of God.

False Pastors Surround President Trump Causing Him To Make Mistakes – Pray For Them To Be Removed, Sadhu Selvaraj, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp
CS Commentary: At about the 6:30-7:00 point Sadhu talks about being caught up to the Council Of God in heaven and witnessing former US Presidents praying for the nation. At 10:00 he prophesies that the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia will be broken to pieces. Shortly after, he speaks of the ‘Eagle’ as a symbol of freedom for the U.S. He says if the U.S. goes into captivity then the whole world will go into captivity and implies that if there is a woman President then the U.S. will ‘ride the Beast.’ He states that it is Trump’s destiny to help Israel rebuild the temple and to guard the freedom of this nation by being an ‘uncompromising’ President.

It, or any part of it, should not be squandered.”

John Paul Jackson: The Perfect Storm (video, left), Jim Bakker Show, 2015
CS Commentary: Amazingly, just shortly after this appearance, in February of 2015, at the age of just 64, John Paul Jackson passed away from complications related to pneumonia. John Paul was a well-balanced prophetic figure in the church from the 1980’s forward who I had the opportunity to speak with privately on two different occasions while he was a pastor at Anaheim Vineyard.
At a dream interpretation seminar in the early 2000’s – where I was also present – he shared with the group that God had told him that he would live into his early 100’s. His death was a shock and a great loss to the body of Christ, but illustrates that, within the prophetic, very little is completely set but depends on our actions, reactions and perhaps, ultimately, on the grace and mercy of God.
If John Paul – who never had a hint of scandal in his ministry – can pass away so young then we should all fear God and throw ourselves on His mercy. Why did he pass away so young? Perhaps there are hints in the prophetic stories and lessons of 1 and 2 Kings – or maybe we will never know until we get there ourselves and can hear it in his own words.
This summary of the Perfect Storm prophecy also illustrates that timing is always an issue in prophetic interpretation. Interestingly, John Paul keys in on 2020 – Terry Bennett has also predicted an intensification of events in the US shortly following 2020.
Message 2019: Israel Split, US Divided, Sadhu Selvaraj
CS Commentary: Seems like this, which may be a splicing of different prophetic words in different places, includes some prophetic words from as early as 2014, and 2016-17. Sadhu talks about the significance of the number 70, how it relates to longevity of life, the nation of Israel, release from captivity, visitation of angels, etc. There is an interesting encounter with Michael that begins about the 10:00 mark: he speaks of 1948, 1967, and 2017 as significant dates for Israel and seems to prophesy another major Israeli war in 2017. This did not happen.
But, he speaks of the 70 year celebration of Israel as a nation as from 1947 (when the covenant was signed) to 2017. So the significance of 2017 for Israel is that her 70 years as a nation are ending. Sometime following 2017 Israel will go into another captivity. Dec 23, 2016, the UN passed a resolution to divide Israel into 2 states. Same thing happened with the resolution of 1948. The US initiated and allowed this resolution to be passed (Obama’s administration).
Nov 30, 2011 Sadhu had an open vision of an angel telling him about a betrayal of Israel by the US. Whoever divides Israel will also be divided. Zech 1:12-16 prophesies the division of the land.
How To Cleanse Your Spirit, Mind & Heart Daily (video, left), Sadhu Selvaraj, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp
CS Commentary: Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ spoke of the same sort of process back in the 1970’s and 1980’s – he called it ‘spiritual breathing’ and wrote a little blue booklet and a ‘transferable concept’ about it. The minute that you are conscious of sin, repent and confess it to God and claim forgiveness by faith (1 John 1:9). The prophet Bob Jones asked the Lord once many years ago “who is the most esteemed saint on the face of the earth?” The Lord’s response to him was a woman, Corrie Ten Boom, who had survived the Holocaust. When he asked “Why?” the Lord told him it was because she was aware of her sin and kept short accounts, confessing it throughout the day – as soon as she was aware of it.
A Vicious Civil War Is Coming To The Church (video, left), Neville Johnson, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp
CS Commentary: We agree with Neville’s interpretation of Acts 1, where Jesus is taken up in the clouds, then disappears into heaven. While studying in seminary almost two decades ago, we saw in Acts 1 that there is a continuous structure linked with the end of Luke. Luke-Acts were considered one book, and circulated as such in the early church. You cannot fully understand Acts 1 without… To continue reading, click here.

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’s message below in Editor’s Choice.
CS Commentary: This is a great dream with a nice prophetic commentary from this sister following on the video. She posted the dream on September 5, 2017.
Note how the dream opens. The beginning of a dream is the most important part, because it sets the context and ‘field of interpretation.’
What is the field of interpretation here? A house that ‘looks like’ a ‘camp’ with ‘family and friends.’ Therefore, this dream is primarily about a situation among the dreamer’s family and friends that involves a house and ‘camp’ situation. But, that doesn’t mean that it does not have relevance for the larger Body of Christ – it does. Continue Reading here…
CS Commentary: Tertullian and other Early Church Fathers confirm that the devil probably attacks and enters believer’s dreams even more than unbeliever’s in an attempt to deceive and mislead them. Some contemporary prophetic figures have suggested that no more than about 10-20% of a believer’s dreams are from God.

People Tell Us How QAnon Ruined Their Relationships, Mark Lamoureaux, Vice
CS Commentary: We have written extensively on QAnon and Pizzagate – see our Politics Common Sense Interpretation Page for more. As we have noted, it is primarily liberally biased investigators that report on ‘Q’ for a number of reasons, the top one being that it is an alt-right ‘theory.’ Vice is another liberal-leaning site with its own bias, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t insight or interesting material here. As our most recent Medium articles show, Trump insiders like Sebastian Gorka have completely demolished and disavowed ‘Q,’ as have failed predictions, failed core theories, and common sense and rationality. In addition to the proofs we provide, see this, written 10 months ago: Here Is Every QAnon Prediction That’s Failed To Come True, The Daily Dot.

CS Commentary: The CNN commentator tries, weakly, to push the women’s ‘unequal’ pay issue. Wake up CNN! The chart in the video says it all: US women receive 23% of the revenue they bring in, while US men only receive 7% of the revenue they generate. Seems like the women have a pretty good deal. The two players are non-commital about a trip to the White House. The last time we checked that was a ‘United States’ in their team name. If they want to raise their revenue and increase it to ‘equal’ pay maybe they should try representing the whole nation and not just half of it.

CS Commentary: We disagree with a few of these, and more with the order. The Americans and Dexter out of the Top 10 and Justified ahead of both them? Doesn’t make sense. And should ‘Hannibal’ even be in here? The first season was good, then subsequent seasons were anything but a ‘work of genius.” Boring. We also heartily disagree with most of the top 5 and wonder if most of them should even be in this list.
