A House Church Revival: The ‘Synaxis’ Uprising, Chuck Pierce, Elijah List
CS Commentary: This is a nice thought – and we like the general thought here – but in a superficial review at least, we can find no evidence of a ‘synaxis’ uprising in 1 Corinthians, as Pierce says. The word used for ‘coming together’ or ‘assemble’ here is a compound Greek verb, sun-ergomai, which simply means ‘come together’ or ‘gather,’ or ‘assemble.’ Like we said, the thought is still a good one.

Must See – Prophetic Word For 2020: Two Storms Are Coming (video, left), R. Loren Sandford, New Song Church
CS Commentary: Sermon length, but worth viewing. The first 15 minutes is an insider’s eloquent, balanced summary of the Trump Presidency from a spiritual perspective. Then he begins an insightful prediction of things to come over the next four to five years in the world, then in the church. Interestingly enough, Loren had a vision in 2009 about white tornadoes. We had a dream in 2009 about global explosions – the Walter Conkrite dream – that can be accessed here.
CS Evaluation: 10 Plagues Hitting Our Planet Simultaneously, Michael Snyder, Charisma

(see below in Common Sense Interpretation); 2- Weather Patterns: Though this link is from 2011 it is instrumental in making the case that its not weather…To continue reading, see this link

CS Commentary: JPJ says clearly that he does not know for sure whether these headlines relate to ‘The Perfect Storm’ or not – but they might.
Two Minutes With JPJ: Where Are We In ‘The Perfect Storm?” The Eye Of The Hurricane, (video, right), John Paul Jackson, Tru News/Real Thing TV
CS Commentary: Here, we again see the difficulty related to interpretive attempts, especially related to timing. JPJ pinpoints 2015 as the date to come out of the ‘eye’, but that has obviously been ‘pushed back.’ More than one prophet is now pointing to 2021-22. However, we must always allow for the effects of intercession and repentance from God’s people, and even more, the grace and mercy of God. For more, see our Global ‘Perfect Storm’ Portfolio on the CS Money Page this week, 2/16/20.
Prophecy Review: The Coming Perfect Storm, Full Version (video, left), John Paul Jackson, Streams Ministries
CS Commentary on Prophecy Review: JPJ first delivered the word in July of 2008. It was sent out to his mail list in August 2008. The video appears to be made later in 2008, but not posted till years later. JPJ indicates that most of the word will begin to take place….To continue reading click this link
The Coming Perfect Storm (video,right), John Paul Jackson, Cheesman Romero/Jim Bakker Show
CS Commentary: In this important video, we get a clear explanation of exactly what ‘the coming Perfect Storm’ involves: the perfect alignment of ‘five types of events that had never happened before.’ The Perfect Storm prophecy regards multiple things in each of the five areas – Religion, Politics, Economics, War, and Geophysical – and is a global event. JPJ describes it as a ‘ten year period of escalation.’ But then he puts the dates of 2010 to 2020 on it. These dates have been pushed back in CS’s opinion. As to that phenomenon and the attacks of ‘false prophecy’ relative to this that some will erroneously make we refer the reader to Evaluating Prophets And Prophecy.
Shake, Expose, Transfer, Neville Johnson, November 2014 (video, right), Unto The Lamb/You Tube
CS Commentary: According to Neville, the last ‘Blood Moon’ before the return of the Lord occurred around the time he gave this message. He also discusses a ‘visitation.’ In CS’s opinion, Neville seems to and probably misinterprets the seven year periods prophesied in the visitation as coming immediately.

Are These ‘Billions’ Of Locusts Threatening To Create A Horrific End-Times-Scenario In East Africa? Michael Snyder, Charisma
CS Evaluation: Is this really a ‘horrific End-Times scenario?’ First of all, he alludes to this as more proof that his theory that the ‘perfect storm’ (spoken of by prophetic figure John Paul Jackson, evaluated elsewhere on this site) is here. We do not believe this is correct for a number of good reasons…To continue reading click this link
A ‘Bomb Cyclone’ Just Hit California – Is This The Key Prophetic Sign That John Paul Jackson Warned Us About? Michael Snyder, 365 Prophetic
CS Evaluation: We live in California and at least here in Southern California, the ‘Bomb Cyclone’ was not even noticed. This, in and of itself, doesn’t necessarily mean anything – except if almost nobody notices something how can it be a ‘sign’ or a ‘warning?’ This link explains a ‘bomb cyclone’ – as does this NY Times 2 minute link – its basically nothing but a severe, fast developing winter storm, but not near as bad as a hurricane, and nothing to get upset about. I suppose it sounds alarming because of the name – but a little investigation proves otherwise. It appears to be a relatively common occurrence.
We have evaluated John Paul’s ‘Perfect Storm’ prophecy below and whether or not it is in the process of being fulfilled and noted that the ‘events’ Snyder points to are presumptuous as to its fulfillment. We should not use the prophetic or our interpretation – or misinterpretation – of it as some sort of alarmist cry that brings attention to ourselves, our political career, or articles that we want to get published. This does not serve the prophetic or the Body of Christ in general.
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.

Must Read – What Happens If A Pandemic Hits? Jon Evans, Tech Crunch
CS Commentary: CS has gone on record previously saying that this Coronavirus will not result in millions of deaths globally. We believe total spread, infection and deaths will probably be less than the H1N1 influenza virus in 2009. For more, see the CS Coronavirus Update, link below.
CS Coronavirus Update (click this link for complete Daily Update): Bottom Line – We do not believe this will be a global pandemic that sweeps the world and kills millions of people, however the World Heath Organization (WHO, a largely corrupt organization) is saying that they are in ‘a phase of preparedness for a potential pandemic’. Note that the common cold is a pandemic; the flu virus is also a pandemic. Covid-19 is a coronavirus, like SARS in 2003 and MERS in 2015. H1N1, an influenza virus, did sweep the globe in 2009 and killed as many as 575,000. By comparison the Spanish Influenza of 1918 killed 50 million globally. Covid-19 has now spread to 82+ nations and territories. The R naut, the rate of spread, is 2-3. The potentially huge problem with Covid-19 is that asymptomatic people may spread the virus, and screening/testing in the US – and throughout the world – has not been standardized or optimized.
As of today, the US Center For Disease Control (CDC) has recently warned Americans to expect that the spread of the virus in the US will increase. Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC’s principal deputy director declared…For the complete Daily Update click this link
