The Meaning Of ‘Lukewarm, (video, left)’ Jim Bakker Show
CS Commentary: Pretty good explanation here, but we would add ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ are both good, when you understand the context as explained; lukewarm is bad, for the reasons explained and more. The point of the passage may be the source: if you are close to the source you get the true benefit of either ‘hot’ or ‘cold,’ which are both good. Later in the passage Jesus will say ‘Behold I stand at the door and knock.’ Again, this is an invitation to come to the source which is itself the sole and primary antidote to counter lukewarmness and become either ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ for the Lord.

Kingdom Government And True Justice In America, Rick Joyner, Elijah’s List
Vision Of The Lampstands, Ben Lim, Elijah’s List
CS Commentary: In our opinion, the interpretation of this is a little different than the one offered. Joyner’s treatise on Government above, particularly his last statement on the church in society, should be used to interpret this vision. In the book of Revelation, lampstands are a primary symbol for how bright the church burns as a separate and moral light reflecting Christ to the culture. It is most probably the same here, meaning that this vision has less to do with the states themselves than it has to do with the church in each one of the states.

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.

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.
