A 2nd American Revolutionary-Civil War Is Coming (video, left), Sadhu Selvaraj, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp
CS Commentary: Neville, Terry Bennett, and Sadhu all continue to testify that some level of a 3rd Civil War (Revolutionary War, Civil War, Future Civil War) is coming to America. The intensity of the conflict can be lessened by repentance and prayer of the American church. What should God’s people do? 1) Pray that you don’t lose your Christian liberty, 2) Pray that you escape from the wrath to come, 3) Pray for your children and against their evil indoctrination, 4) Fast and pray to stand strong against these evil days. See Rick Joyner link in Week Of above for the initial prophecy that Sadhu refers to.

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.

Quote: “If we are offered a Palestinian state next to Israel, we will not say no. While we will take whatever Israel gives us, we will never recognize its right to exist. We will use the state as a launching pad to liberate all Palestine, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River…There are Jews everywhere. We must attack every Jew on planet Earth! We must slaughter and kill them, with Allah’s help. We will lacerate and tear them to pieces.”

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.

This Week’s Quote From The Book: “In all such cases, as with the [Alger] Hiss case, this meant that both the extent and the impact of the conspiracies were officially downplayed, denied, suppressed, and/or ignored by those elected leaders directly responsible for defending the Constitution. In each and every instance, it was the anti-Communists…who were punished and castigated by the Washington Establishment, and then ostracized for their ‘crimes’ of exposing treason.”

Quotes Of The Month:
“But here’s how Communist strategy works: What the Communists have always counted on is people’s laziness. They know that editors and book reviewers will not check the facts. They know that everybody is too busy. They expect the false trail of debris and doubt to erode the victim’s position over time.” – J. R. Nyquist, Review of Diana West’s ‘American Betrayal’
“There is an important strategic lesson here. Honest language is precious. It makes unity and agreement possible between men and women of good will. But the enemy of unity and agreement puts words to an entirely different use. The sower of confusion, the literary murderer, uses words as weapons.” – J. R. Nyquist, Review of Diana West’s ‘American Betrayal
