CS Commentary: Ray Dalio is one of the richest people in the world and built the most successful hedge fund of all time, Bridgewater Associates. Ray is an acknowledged adherent of Transcendental Meditation, but has figured out a way of working and relating that far exceeds many of those in the Christian church. There is a lot of wisdom here for those who can overlook the whole ‘TM thing.’ For more from Ray Dalio, see the Money link.
What Is Evil? (video, left), Apologetics Canada
CS Commentary: The evil spirit came back into the man and brought seven unclean spirits with him and Jesus said, “This is what will happen to this evil generation.” According to Iben Thranholm, Danish theologian, “Evil always presents itself as something good, as something that you want.”

There Is Leprosy In The Church (video, left), Neville Johnson, Academy Of Light
CS Commentary: If you refer to Psalm 8:5-6, Neville is correct – the original Hebrew phase is you have made him “a little lower than God,” not “a little lower than the angels” as Hebrews 2 translates/interprets. This NT translation may have been a function of the writer of the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the OT that the early church used, then, continued in subsequent translated manuscripts. Just speculation, we don’t know the actual historical transmission, but this one is an educated guess.

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.

More Common Sense
CS Commentary: Though we featured this book two weeks ago, we will highlight it and quote from it over the next month in this space because of its critical and significant nature. Written in 2013 during the Obama Administration, the book ‘merely’ goes ‘behind the curtain’ of American political machinations from the 1930’s forward and systematically unveils how American President’s and politicians (before Trump) have ‘given away the store’ – allowing not only the invasion of communism and Islam into the corridors of American life, but the halls of power and influence. This book details step by step the why and the how’s of what prophetic people in the church (see Spiritual Life page) have predicted as God’s impending judgment on America and helps the reader understand the intense elite hatred towards the current US President.

Quotes Of The Month:
“[Russia] live[s] and breathe[s] deception. You cannot understand what they are doing without understanding this. Indeed, you can’t even begin to understand Communism without understanding deception, which is very rarely mentioned in text- books on Communism”. — Joseph D. Douglass Jr. (speaking of Soviet-Cold War Era Communism, but still applicable for today)
