Did Kim Clement See ‘Q’ In 2012? A New Party Rising/An Attempted Coup Avoided (video, left), Kim Clement, Donne Clement Petruska
CS Commentary: We disagree with any interpretation of this that validates the legitimacy of ‘Q.’ Kim is speaking of a weapon – not a person, if you listen carefully. The interpretation of this relative to ‘Q’ would more likely be an example of confirmation bias. We have researched and written about that and the likely non-legitimacy of ‘Q’ elsewhere, see the Interpretation page on Politics, and/or the Politics Page Week Of May 12, 2019. We also disagree with the interpretation of Kim’s ‘David’ prophecy as President Trump – it is much more likely that it applies to some future President. Jerome Corsi affirms Q as military intelligence in an excerpt elsewhere – again, this is possible but not likely based on the multiple inconsistencies in Q data that cannot be explained by the typical ‘misdirection’ excuses, as well as other evidence, as addressed in the link above. It is more likely that Corsi and others are being deceived by someone claiming to be Q. Still, there is always the possibility – not probability – that we are wrong on this – up until today no one can say with 100% certainty that there is or is not a genuine Q source. However, Trump insider Sebastian Gorka and others have come out condemning the Q meme as a conspiracy theory with no basis in fact.

CS Commentary: According to 1 Corinthians, the natural comes before the spiritual, and, yes, at times God does speak prophetically through natural events. On the other hand, one can at times take this too far. We let you be the judge here.

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.
CS Commentary: We have published different versions of this once or twice, but the prophecy gets us every time and it is worth repeating. Will there be both a period of great crisis and great blessing during the middle of two Trump Presidential terms? Or, does this prophecy speak of something else in the future? Will there be a part of the church – Esther – that rises up to bring healing to the US after catastrophe? Other prophetic voices are speaking about increasing turmoil in the US that will begin 2020-21. It all remains to be seen, but this prophecy is interesting and relevant considering the tension in the Trump Presidency and events with China, in particular.

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.

God Is Saying ‘Get Out Of The Church!’ (video, right) Terry Bennett, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp
CS Commentary: Here is what is sure to be a controversial message. As one friend said to me, “But Terry has a church himself!” True. But the church is much more than just an organization with a physical structure that comes together on Sundays and does the same old, same old. Hebrews 10:25 says, not to “forsake [our own] assembling together.” Wherever the people of God come together – and in whatever way – there is the church. Sunday services and structure many times lead to a Western form of church in which one leader’s opinions or ideas rule to create religious traditions that actually impede true relationship and growth. We think this is more to Terry’s point – though he is obviously speaking a polemic against the established, traditional church as well.

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.

Quote: “Memory encoding during a traumatic event is diminished and sometimes inaccurate,” Strand wrote. When trauma occurs, the prefrontal cortex often shuts down, and more primitive parts of the brain take over. Information necessary to survival continues to be recorded, Strand explained, but the primitive brain doesn’t do very well “recording the information many professionals have been trained to obtain.”

Quotes Of The Month:
“…what “tees us off” will be what we are called to fight. For example, those who are the most disturbed and agitated by human trafficking should take that as a sign that they are called to fight this enemy. For others, it could be things like racism, or the sowing of immorality in school curriculum. These are not random provocations intended to irritate us; they are calls to action. We must all consider how we can be a part of fighting what provokes us the most and what Scripture defines as evil.” – Rick Joyner, Morningstar Ministries
