Timeline of Kim Clement North Korea Prophecy (video, right), Sergio Rodriquez
CS Commentary: According to most recent news reports, Kim Jong-Un may be alive, dead, or in a comatose/vegetative state at present. No one knows for sure. This is a good overall context for the prophecy and recent news events in N. Korea. We do not share the subtle anti-Trump overtones in this piece, believing Trump’s overtures to the dictator to be well-intentioned and not ignorant of Jong-Un’s schemes. To understand the US foreign policy fully you must listen to the President, the Secretary of State and key US senators and other cabinet members. Many times, Trump and Sec State Pompeo will play a ‘good-cop, bad-cop’ routine with global leaders, Trump in the good-cop role. This is to help Trump maintain good relations and open channels while communicating to the leaders. At the same time, Pompeo rounds out and more bluntly communicates the US’s true views and intent. Relative to Asian nations particularly, this helps Asian leaders to not feel shamed and maintain ‘face.’ As stated, there are conflicting reports as to whether Kim is dead, sick, or in some type of vegetative state. Be sure to hear the second person testimony that is the last 5 minutes.

CS Commentary: This message and the video to the right complement each other. The whole message is good and worth listening to but the relevant portion directed to Coronavirus, the meaning of this crisis, and the church, on the video at left, begins around 1:28 (1 hour, 28 minutes in). At 1:35: There is a greater shaking coming…To continue reading see this link…
CS Commentary: Note that Sadhu now says that he does not know when this second more terrifying plague is coming. Previously he said it was coming before a vaccine for the Covid-19 could be found. We attribute this to prophetic protocol: the Lord may ask true prophets to say things for the purpose of motivating people to repentance and action, hoping that their actions will enable Him to delay judgement (Jer. 18). This is not misinterpretation or prophetic error, though those do occur among less mature or false prophets.

CS Evaluation (see below): Prophetic Dream: Trump Catches The Big One (video, left), Bonnie Jones/Bob Jones
CS Evaluation: We do not believe this dream is about President Trump, the economy, or the gold standard. It is about the retrieval of a destiny that has been lost because of a poor decision made about twelve years ago. The biggest interpretive question here is...To Continue Reading And For Video See This Link

CS Evaluation: We don’t believe the Coronavirus economic ‘event’ will immediately lead to financial ruin. The stock market, separate from the economy and leading it by about 6 months, will come back sooner. Goldman Sachs is predicting a third quarter recovery, others sooner, or slightly later. The economy will come back in stages and recovery will be different – some businesses will thrive, others will go out of business. The world has changed, no doubt, but the consumer has always come back after crisis. Longer term, this crisis continues to set the US and other nations up for an eventual global debt explosion – but this should happen later, into the late 2020’s or 2030’s.
CS Evaluation: John Paul Jackson Prophesied About A Second Pandemic, Shawn A. Akers, Charisma
CS Evaluation: As we’ve said previously, no, this is not the End Times virus that JPJ prophesied about – a little checking would have made that clear to Charisma. According to the website JPJ founded, Streams Ministries, JPJ prophesied about an End Times virus that would be typified by red splashes or a red rash. He also prophesied about another virus before that one that would create a lot of fear and be thought to be the one to worry about. That sounds a lot like Coronavirus – but only time will tell. As we’ve shown, H1N1 in 2009 was so far a lot worse than this one in terms of infected and number of deaths. But, it is still early – and regardless, for various reasons, mostly the contagion effect and the uncertainty, Coronavirus has caused a lot more fear and panic. For more on this, see the Common Sense Interpretation section, below.
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.

CS Commentary: Based on two non-fiction books by participants from opposite sides this is a fact-based, informative and riveting series based on the 1993 siege of Branch Davidians led by self-proclaimed Messiah David Koresh. Similar to watching a horrendous train wreck, once you start it you can’t take your eyes off of the events as they unfold. The writers make some concrete choices of events that others say remain shrouded. Its great writing presented by an equally great cast. Challenge: try not to be enraged and scared by the Federal government and the FBI. These are events – along with Ruby Ridge, which happened months before this – with which every American should be familiar. CS Grade: A (where A is the highest grade possible)

You monitor everything, every citizen, but you refuse to monitor the diseased wet markets in your country.” — Julian Reichelt, editor-in-chief of Bild, “You Are Endangering the Entire World,” addressed directly to President Xi Jinping.
