Proof We Are In The Last Days: Anti-Christ And False Prophet Will Appear On World Stage By 2016 (video, left), Tom Horn, Jim Bakker Show, 2015
CS Commentary: Interesting especially in light of Terry Bennett’s recent words that beginning in 2020 things will get tougher. See Archives of last few weeks for that video. By this, Horn does not mean that we will be able to identify who they are – only that they have appeared.
The Anti-Christ Will Come From Turkey (video, left), Armageddon News
CS Commentary: The interpretation of the identity of the Anti-Christ here might be too literal, but time will tell. It is an interesting interpretation of the Beast as the Ottoman Empire.

The Anti-Christ: The Key Is Turkey, Not Rome (video, right), Steve Cioccolanti
CS Commentary: Another interesting interpretation of OT and Revelation passages that points to Turkey.
CS Commentary: Makes a different argument than the ones above who say the Anti-Christ must come out of Turkey and puts those arguments in perspective. The problem here is that many say the Roman Empire did not end until 395 CE. And then the Ottoman Empire, which lasted longer than all of them, began after that. They put the beginning of the Holy Roman Empire with the crowning of Charlemagne in 800 CE. The Anti-Christ comes from the revived Holy Roman Empire. One problem with this view is that it…For more, see here.
The next post, featuring Tom Horn on the Jim Bakker Show, proposes and explains this exact type of scenario.
CS Commentary: Explains how extremists – in Islam and Christianity – will be driven out and the Anti-Christ will come into his reign.

The Inward Kingdom, Part 14 (video, right), Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh
CS Commentary: Message starts at about 50:00 point. If you’re pressed for time just listen to the first 16 minutes through 1:06. If you have more time, listen through 1;12. Its all about being, not doing. “Satan will do anything to get our eyes off of the Person of Jesus Christ.” “God wants your heart – all of it.”

Four Critical Words For The Church Given July 4, 2017 – Why Trump Was Elected (video, right), Sadhu Selvaraj, Jim Bakker Show
CS Commentary: Sadhu speaks a year ago on the Jim Bakker Show about what God showed him at that time, and also about an experience 2 years prior – in 2015 – during Obama’s administration.
CS Commentary: Terry gets right into the message close to the opening. First 10 minutes or so is essential; gets more practical at 55:00. At 1:03 forward he deals with the misplaced doctrine of Identification with Christ that says everything is already finished and we just have to believe it. If you just want to know what he believes will happen in the future, see 1:12 forward to the end.

CS Commentary: Press under pressure not to report tourist killings in Mexico. Duh. Like we’ve said all along – think twice before you vacation or invest in Mexico. Mexico is basically something just short of a Narco state. Quote from documentary narrator: Officials are either in denial, or in fear of scaring away tourism.
True Detective’s Season 3 Finale Starts With A Bluff Then Tells A New Story, Emily L. Stephens, TV.Avclub
CS Commentary: This writer is much more generous with the season and the finale than we would be – most of the season a jumbled, juggling mess between three time periods with too-long dialogue, exasperating editing, and a let-down of an ending. Barely watchable and the least interesting of the three seasons.

CS Commentary: Critics saw the first two episodes and seem underwhelmed, but they are, well, critics. We’ve only seen the first episode but it was funnier than anything we’ve seen in some time. The trick will be sustaining that comedy over a season which seems like it will be a very difficult challenge. But the show works a way lot better than the trailer indicated.
