Brene Brown’s Greatest Truth: Be Brave & Show Up, Oprah Winfrey Network (video, right 3 minutes)

CS Commentary: it may be confusing to some of you that we are featuring Brene Brown talks on the psychological dynamics in relationships, especially when we are not that familiar with her and do not know her spiritual views. However, the Bible speaks of both Samuel and Jesus as to their development in the eyes of both God and man. 1 John 4 is clear that you cannot love God who you do not see unless you can love your brother who you do see. We have to be human in its fullness before we can truly be spiritual. Brene is good at breaking down the inner dynamics that help us learn to love ourselves and others and become fully human.

2015: Rick Joyner Says It Is Time To Get Out Of CA, Jim Bakker Show (video, left below)

CS Commentary: Hard to know how to interpret this one, but we would say that it is not yet time to get out of CA unless God has made that abundantly clear to you. How would he do that? First, through relationship and the still small voice of the Spirit (see Books section, below). Second, if you miss the first through a dream or some other intervening experience (but be careful here, they are easily misinterpreted – see Dreams section, below). CS believes that the time to get out of CA may also be the time a lot of people want to get out of the USA and that this is still years ahead of us at present. Of course, this was given back in 2015 – so one could view that favorably or unfavorably, we suppose :). Again, we could be wrong and if our view changes we will let you know.

Justine Bateman: The Pitfalls Of Fame (video, right), Megyn Kelly, NBC

CS Commentary: This might seem a little out of place on this page, we know, but it is always good in our narcissistic society to listen to someone with experience bring our foolish desires for some kind of big platform back down to earth.

The Omnipresence Of God: Can The Ordinary Person Walk With God Like Enoch?, Neville Johnson, You Tube

Quote: “Time and eternity are beginning to merge…2018 ushered in a new era…for us to know the times and the seasons is critical…just knowing the season can release grace and favor for us…Israel did not know the time they were living in and they missed out dramatically…there are levels of relationship [with God] and it starts with the omnipresence of God.”

Sadhu Selvraj: 2018 Prophecies Concerning India, China & The South China Sea, The Destruction Of North Korea, And the Blessing Of The United States, You Tube

CS Commentary: This appears to be a prophetic word given earlier in 2018 concerning the four nations. He prophesies destruction and famine for North Korea and blessing for the United States, declaring that Trump is God’s man to protect Israel. We see these as ‘seasonal’ prophecies that do not invalidate other prophecies Sadhu has issued regarding coming judgement on the U.S.

CS Commentary: This Catholic theologian/historian puts rational thought to an idea CS has expressed here before – is it possible that Pope Francis, and many of the prophecies about him being the ‘False Prophet’ are symbolic in the sense that he is a type for the true false prophet-pope to come after him? This article explains why and how that could happen.

CS Commentary: This video, in our opinion, misinterprets this set of prophecies as being about Jared Kushner, but there is more reason to believe that they are concerning a future US leader that arises in a time of crisis. The last 5 minutes or so of the video is superfluous.

CS Evaluation

Rick Joyner Evaluates Prophet Sadhu Selvaraj And Discusses How To Evaluate Anyone, You Tube

CS Evaluation: Rick’s comments on Sadhu are good; those of us who have heard Sadhu in person annually for over a decade now know him to be a genuine prophet and a Man of God.

CS disagrees slightly with Joyner’s use of Matthew 18 relative to general, but kind and compassionate – and as Joyner references, restrained – criticism of leaders. Criticism should always be done respectfully, but Matthew 18 appears to address private sin or faults that are hidden from the church, therefore it says, “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector” (Matt. 18:17 NAS95). Joyner is speaking relative to leader to leader criticism of theological opinions or practice. Here it is much better protocol for one leader to take another aside and express disagreement privately.

However, when any leader speaks publicly we all have the right – and the responsibility – to evaluate such comments in light of known Scripture. As it says in Acts, the Bereans took Paul’s words to heart and examined the Scriptures to see if they were true (Acts 17:11).

How To Respond To A Direction Dream, John E. Thomas, Stream Ministries

CS Evaluation: CS does not agree with the above link, updated 6/26/18

Is there really such a thing as a Direction Dream, as the author assumes? Maybe. But, ‘Direction Dreams,’ like the ones Joseph (Mary’s fiance/husband) had were clear, and largely in life threatening situations. Additionally, an angel appeared in these dreams, giving them a supernatural quality. That is how Joseph knew he was to act immediately.

Unless your dream is at the same level of the supernatural and an angel – not something symbolic, but clearly an angel – has appeared to you in a dream, you should not be rushing off anywhere. Most dreams give you time to prayerfully consider your action. To continue see this link.

Books:

Bill O’Reilly On His New Book, Killing The SS And How Regular People Can Embrace Evil, Newsmax/Bill O’Reilly

How You Can Be Led By The Spirit Of God, Legacy Edition, Kenneth Hagin, Sr.

CS Commentary: This book is a classic and one of the foundational, must-read books for learning how to hear God and to be led by the Holy Spirit. Other Christian leaders like Neville Johnson and Sadhu Selvaraj have taught similar concepts regarding how to be led by the Holy Spirit. Quote: “I did not put prophets in the Church to guide the New Testament Church. My Word says, ‘As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God’ [Rom. 8:14].” In the opinion of CS, this book should be a staple in every Christian’s library.

Sword & Scimitar, Raymond Ibrahim

CS Commentary: Probably one of the most fascinating and important books on the history of Islam related to the ignorance of Western society ever written. Researched and resourced from primary Arabic and Greek sources. A must read.
