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.
The Refining Of Esther And The Church, Ricci Wilson, World For Jesus Ministries
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.

Quote: “Venezuela’s crisis is a good example of harsh lessons learned by one generation but forgotten by the next….While the majority of Venezuelans suffer, Maduro dines at luxurious restaurants and treats his family to extravagant skydiving adventures. The president’s corrupt behavior is a reflection of his inner circle, which is composed almost entirely of crooks.”

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.

Quotes Of The Month:
“Most people are defeated by their secondary successes.” – President Harry Truman
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – The Man In The Arena, President Theodore Roosevelt
