A Word For The USA, Saturday October 17, 2020, Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj (video, left), Shekinah Worship Center (see a written summary of this word in the Red Box below)

Encounter On Lookout Mountain Part 2 (video, right), Terry Bennett, Messengers Of Shiloh

CS Commentary/Synopsis: This is a short video of about 15-20 minutes. Do not be mockers or those who persecute God’s messengers. Judgment is coming to the church first. Russia will have to defeat Communism to be free of communism. Civil war is coming to China to free God’s people in China. Terry then speaks a word to multiple European nations: to Germany – war and division is coming. Then, to Mexico – your people will flee to you with spoils from the north.

To America: Wormwood approaches, unseen and unsuspected by an unbelieving world. [The term ‘wormwood’ seems to be a general term that represents ‘bitter’ times of trouble.] Word to California, and to Los Angeles. He then recites words of the Lord to Europe concerning the anti-Christ. Word to Nashville, TN: this mountain shall fall, as shall the other mountains of Babylon. Final Warning: in this time Christianity shall be shaken, governments will be overturned, new ones will emerge…in the times just ahead (the next decade). Also, see our summary below [red box] on Sadhu’s message to the USA for how we believe Sadhu’s and Terry’s prophetic call and message intersect and complement each other.

The Next 25 Months in The American Economy, Joe Joe Dawson, Elijah List

CS Commentary: This matches our feeling about the short-term vs medium to long term impact of all of the prophetic words on this site. Though God is warning us long term about what may be and what is inevitable, if the church continues to pray there will be another season of grace and short-term blessing. A Trump win will lead to short-term conflict in the nation until things settle, but should then lead to further prosperity until several years down the road, where we see things possibly shifting due to Supreme Court decisions, the possible reversal of Roe v. Wade, terrorist attacks, and further foreign and domestic unrest. Interestingly, 25 months puts us to October-November 2022, and Fall 2022 is the next season of severe warning from prophetic voices such as Terry Bennett.

Updated 10/18/20 – Summary of Sadhu Selvaraj’s Word From The Lord to the United States

According to Sadhu Selvaraj, speaking at Lancaster, CA, on Friday night, 10/16/20 through Sunday morning, 10/18/20, the Lord Jesus sent him to the United States as a result of a special encounter.

In this encounter, Sadhu was caught up to a large gathering in heaven and told to go back and speak a message to the world: He was to put a measuring scale on the podium in front of him (which he did during the Friday night message) and declare that the nations have been measured and found wanting (Daniel 5). Time has changed and judgment is coming – to the church first. 

According to what The Lord told Sadhu, President Trump is God’s man for this hour. If another is elected, it will be the last hour for the United States. If President Trump is elected, there will be one more release of grace and President Trump – who has fulfilled his first assignment of supporting Israel, will have a chance to fulfill his second assignment of bringing back righteousness to the United States.

Sadhu was exhorted by the Lord to tell all US believers to pray and fast for President Trump and for the election – like Daniel prayed during his time – from now until President Trump is confirmed in office again on January 20. Up until that time, anything can happen. It is up to the prayers of the people of God.

We believe that Sadhu’s message complements the prophetic message of Terry Bennett, below. Terry, as a prophet called to speak from the Lord, is seeing the ‘worst case’ scenario. Things that could occur if President Trump is not elected, or whenever the next ungodly President is elected, but also things that may occur even if Trump is elected. Some of these things could be ‘pushed back’ as a result of the prayers of God’s people.

Editor’s Choice


We can now say with approximate certainty that it appears that there are two main events that Dana’s fifth dream was prophetically pointing to when it highlighted the second and third weeks of October (October 8-22).

One, the death of US Supreme Court justice Ginsberg and the nomination and appointment of conservative Amy Coney Barrett to replace her. Two, evidence, witness and testimony that Joe Biden is a liar, and even a possible traitor to America (see our Politics Page. link above).

How these seismic events shape future events, especially post-election, remains to be seen.

CS Evaluation, Updated 7/26/20: Literary Irony And The Positive Message To The US Church In Dana Coverstone’s First Two Prophetic Dreams (Or, Why And How God Will Put An End To The Present Crisis)

CS Evaluation: Though partially at least, Dana’s first two dreams include a judgment and warning element, we believe that this is a secondary emphasis and that the primary purpose of his dreams is positive, hopeful and lets us know when and how this present season of testing is likely to end. The following link provides our interpretation and the proof for that view. We don’t know Dana, but he seems like a good, sincere brother. These dreams are from God. He had the first of 3 dreams in December 2019.

Dream Interpretation, Updated 8/17/20: Dana Coverstone’s Fifth Prophetic Dream: A New Era In The Church & World – Beginning In October (video on linked page), Seaborn Hall, Common Sense Spiritual Life

CS Commentary, 10/17/20This fifth prophetic dream of Dana’s is worth reviewing, since it specifically points out the 2nd and 3rd weeks of October, a period that we are now in and that we would designate as October 8-22. As we note in our interpretation, this could relate to the present Supreme Court nomination. Or, it could have something to do with the recent and current Hunter Biden revelations. The ‘rock thrown into the pond’ causes ripples that increase with intensity as time lengthens. The dream also specifically points to Halloween, October 31, as a significant date. We would also encourage the reader to review Dana’s Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth prophetic dreams, below.

Dana Coverstone: Coming Persecution Dream (video, right), LWM Video

CS Commentary: ‘The Wolves’ – We don’t offer an interpretation of this dream because the meaning is obvious and Dana’s comments at the end clarify the dream more. The dream’s prophetic predictions also complement those of other prophets, like Terry Bennett and Sadhu Selvaraj, seen elsewhere on this site, particularly our Spiritual LIfe-Interpretation Page.

Our numbered sequence of Dana’s dreams is likely incorrect based on new information that we have. Some of the links may be inactive due to Dana changing You Tube channels. When he updates his new channel with previous dreams, we will update here.

We will be updating our titles and interpretations over the next week or so to reflect the correct numbered sequence of his dreams.

CS Commentary: See Map posted this page. This map and the description of the vision should be compared with Terry Bennett’s prophetic word above. Read the description of the vision and see how some of this might occur, at this link. Again, according to Jer. 18, God can change His mind according to the actions and reactions of the people to what He proclaims. According to both Nita and Terry, a future that is prophesied may be modified or changed due to the repentance and prayers of God’s people and just due to God’s mercy, compassion, and sovereignty. However, according to Terry there are certain judgments on America that are set in stone at this point – the nation has gone too far. For more on this aspect, see Link #3, above, ‘The Fate Of Two Nations.’

Evaluations

CS Evaluation: Chuck Pierce Prophesied Last Year About A Coming ‘Plague’, Wendy Griffith, CBN

CS Evaluation: This is the type of prophetic word that many people use to criticize or disdain prophecy, not realizing that there are many Scriptural ‘caveats’ to most prophecies (See Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy). Note that the prophecy here predicts a ‘turning’ around Passover in April and then puts an additional 40-day condition on it that takes that ‘turning’ into May. God can and will change His word relative to the church’s responses in prayer and repentance. He may say He will do good and do harm; He may say He will do harm and do good. The prophecy is also for a ‘turning’ not an eradication.

Did that ‘turning’ take place? We would say ‘yes’ even though now in August the virus is still raging and US cases are the highest ever. However, the death rate and the seriousness of CV is down substantially and therapeutic and vaccine treatments are closer.

Pulpit And Pen’s charges that “The claims are being repeated by charismatics in the wake of our post, Coronavirus is God’s Plague Upon Charismatics. Simply put, no charismatic prophet has prophesied anything relating to coronavirus accurately, their prophecies all contradict, and no faith-healer has healed a single person of the virus.”

CS Evaluation: Christian Financial Expert – Do March’s Economic Numbers Point To Financial Ruin? Dan Celia, Charisma

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.

Predictions about the Future Price of Gold – see The Perfect Storm Commentary in Must See Videos above.

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, 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.

Warrior Nun, Official Netflix Trailer (video, above left), Netflix

CS Commentary: This series is not perfect, from a story structure standpoint or from a theological standpoint, but it is still an interesting story. Ava, a quadriplegic is raised from the dead and healed when an Angel’s halo is ‘accidentally’ implanted in her back. Now obligated to join a pack of warrior nuns fighting spiritual darkness and evil – not to mention Catholic and corporate conspiracies – she becomes something like the prophet, Jonah, running from her destiny. But how does someone with supernatural sight and powers run from fighting evil? Its an impossibility, but she tries. The story is a little slow-moving and challenged at times, but it’s part Frank Perreti’s This Present Darkness and part Charlie’s Angels and part coming-of-age romance, and it has enough twist and turns not to be boring – and to be more insightful and prescient than it knows. Portuguese-Brazilian Alba Baptista, in the lead role, is a budding international star – expect to see a lot more of her in the future. CS Grade: A-

“People don’t know the value of what they have until it is gone: Freedom suppressed and again regained bites with keener fangs than freedom never endangered…. Liberty is rendered even more precious by the recollection of servitude. Don’t wait till freedom is gone before you enjoy, value, support, protect and make the most of it!” — Marcus Tullius Cicero
