CS Commentary/Evaluation: There are several possible perspectives on the above prophetic words – words that seem to contradict other voices we feature on this site (see below in Editor’s Choice, and more recent posts in the Archives back through July 2019 and before). The first perspective is that the words, largely positive for America, are alternative possibilities that could take place over the short to medium term if…For More See this link
Todd Bentley – Rick Joyner Controversy Update 10/06/19
See the CS article below in Editor’s Choice on why we have featured this controversy on our website.
Michael Brown’s Statement On Bentley From His Website, Ask Dr. Brown
CS Evaluation: The language and attacks issued here should be your first clue that this site is anything but the ‘most trusted source for polemics and discernment.’ Though we have used links from this site in the past – sparingly – this post shows their bias and lack of balance clearly and that they mostly cannot be trusted. Though we do not agree with everything that Brown says, especially his views within the political arena, nor with NAR theology, from his public stances and statements he is nothing like he is described here and is one of the best advocates of God and the supernatural around. Though it is instructive to read your critics, anything from ‘Pulpit & Pen’ should be considered carefully before it is believed or trusted.
We also recommend watching the Terry Bennett comments on this video, Terry Bennett: The Prophetic Movement Is Dead In The Heart Of God/Public Figures In Sin Should Be Exposed Publicly, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp.
CS Commentary: Terry says that if Obama, Clinton, and others are not indicted during the first 100 days of Trump’s Presidency that God is going to ‘shake our nation.’ Regardless, the Trump election – a sovereign move of God – is a ‘sign’ that God is going to sovereignly act in the future. An invitation to a Biblical, end-time purpose. If anything, this excerpt encourages us to continue to pray for the exposure and indictment of criminals within the ‘Deep State’ and that God will restrain His judgment on America and bring true repentance to all believers.
2001 4-Day Encounter With Gabriel: The Future & Fate Of America And Israel (video, right) Terry Bennett, In His Presence
CS Commentary: We do not know when this message was given, but it sounds very much like a message that was given in Mott Auditorium in Pasadena CA on New Years in early 2015 (correction). It is not that message but has some intersections with it. For more on that message and its import, see Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy.
This video was published in 2015, there is no video to speak of, that is it is all audio, and it is over an hour and a half. This is one of the more important prophetic messages that Terry has given and helps place everything else that he says prophetically in context. For a written summary and commentary on this audio/video, with time markers, see here.

John Paul Jackson: The Perfect Storm (video, left), Jim Bakker Show, 2015
CS Commentary: Amazingly, just shortly after this appearance, in February of 2015, at the age of just 64, John Paul Jackson passed away from complications related to pneumonia. John Paul was a well-balanced prophetic figure in the church from the 1980’s forward who I had the opportunity to speak with privately on two different occasions while he was a pastor at Anaheim Vineyard.
At a dream interpretation seminar in the early 2000’s – where I was also present – he shared with the group that God had told him that he would live into his early 100’s. His death was a shock and a great loss to the body of Christ, but illustrates that, within the prophetic, very little is completely set but depends on our actions, reactions and perhaps, ultimately, on the grace and mercy of God.
If John Paul – who never had a hint of scandal in his ministry – can pass away so young then we should all fear God and throw ourselves on His mercy. Why did he pass away so young? Perhaps there are hints in the prophetic stories and lessons of 1 and 2 Kings – or maybe we will never know until we get there ourselves and can hear it in his own words.
This summary of the Perfect Storm prophecy also illustrates that timing is always an issue in prophetic interpretation. Interestingly, John Paul keys in on 2020 – Terry Bennett has also predicted an intensification of events in the US shortly following 2020.
A 2nd American Revolutionary-Civil War Is Coming (video, left), Sadhu Selvaraj, Warriors Prayer Boot Camp
CS Commentary: Neville, Terry Bennett, and Sadhu all continue to testify that some level of a 3rd Civil War (Revolutionary War, Civil War, Future Civil War) is coming to America. The intensity of the conflict can be lessened by repentance and prayer of the American church. What should God’s people do? 1) Pray that you don’t lose your Christian liberty, 2) Pray that you escape from the wrath to come, 3) Pray for your children and against their evil indoctrination, 4) Fast and pray to stand strong against these evil days. See Rick Joyner link in Week Of above for the initial prophecy that Sadhu refers to.

Message 2019: Israel Split, US Divided, Sadhu Selvaraj
CS Commentary: Seems like this, which may be a splicing of different prophetic words in different places, includes some prophetic words from as early as 2014, and 2016-17. Sadhu talks about the significance of the number 70, how it relates to longevity of life, the nation of Israel, release from captivity, visitation of angels, etc. There is an interesting encounter with Michael that begins about the 10:00 mark: he speaks of 1948, 1967, and 2017 as significant dates for Israel and seems to prophesy another major Israeli war in 2017. This did not happen.
But, he speaks of the 70 year celebration of Israel as a nation as from 1947 (when the covenant was signed) to 2017. So the significance of 2017 for Israel is that her 70 years as a nation are ending. Sometime following 2017 Israel will go into another captivity. Dec 23, 2016, the UN passed a resolution to divide Israel into 2 states. Same thing happened with the resolution of 1948. The US initiated and allowed this resolution to be passed (Obama’s administration).
Nov 30, 2011 Sadhu had an open vision of an angel telling him about a betrayal of Israel by the US. Whoever divides Israel will also be divided. Zech 1:12-16 prophesies the division of the land.
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.

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: This is a great dream with a nice prophetic commentary from this sister following on the video. She posted the dream on September 5, 2017.
Note how the dream opens. The beginning of a dream is the most important part, because it sets the context and ‘field of interpretation.’
What is the field of interpretation here? A house that ‘looks like’ a ‘camp’ with ‘family and friends.’ Therefore, this dream is primarily about a situation among the dreamer’s family and friends that involves a house and ‘camp’ situation. But, that doesn’t mean that it does not have relevance for the larger Body of Christ – it does. Continue Reading here…
CS Commentary: Tertullian and other Early Church Fathers confirm that the devil probably attacks and enters believer’s dreams even more than unbeliever’s in an attempt to deceive and mislead them. Some contemporary prophetic figures have suggested that no more than about 10-20% of a believer’s dreams are from God.
