Why Vulnerability Is Your Greatest Strength (video, left), Dr. Brene Brown
CS Commentary: We don’t know all that Brown thinks or believes – and we likely don’t agree with it all, regardless – but what we like about her is that she is real, relatable, vulnerable, and always moving forward – and she shows the average person how they can be and do the same. Great words.
Common Types Of Armor (video, above right), Dr. Brene Brown, Oprah Winfrey Network
CS Commentary: Taylor sees mass arrests sometime after the mid-terms. However, some of what he prophesies is strangely reminiscent of QAnon’s predictions – in fact he mentions Q , as if he is genuine – so Taylor’s prophecies at this point need to be taken with a grain of salt. Taylor may be conflating what the Holy Spirit is speaking to him with what he knows and believes in the natural at this point, so depending on a word by word fulfillment of his predictions may prove fruitless, or even dangerous. Taylor actually seems to believe that McCain was executed – so caveat emptor here, as well. CS believes that some of Taylor’s natural beliefs are erroneous – 1 Thes 5:19-22 should be applied strenuously to his prophecies at this point.
We Believe This Bob Jones Prophecy Will Come True This Week, Mike Bickle, Charisma
Mary K. Baxter On Sid Roth (video, left), 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: Another perspective on one featured here before. Remember the name ‘Gold’, and ‘Stone’, a young David. This is not Trump. There seems to be a mixing of prophetic words here that may begin in contemporary times with the Supreme Court and may progress through Trump vs. Clinton to a future President or leader in America who will defeat a future America’s Goliath: a humble man who speaks few words, who leads in a darker time. Watch the sign of rain. There is much here that is hard to understand – since he may skip from a prophecy about a near time to a prophetic word about a future time – including the prophecy of cries of ‘impeachment’ which may apply to this time or a future one or both.

The Arising Of The False Prophet, Terry Bennett
Quote: “We are going to get judgment to the point that you will want to leave, because we have asked God for time to repent and He has given it, and yet we have refused to go there as a nation. The measure of repentance that is going on is good for bringing out a remnant, but it is not enough to save a nation…we will see such death in this nation on so many realms and scales. Believe me, you are going to be seen as the enemy. Everybody’s agenda is against God, including most of the church.”

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.

Cashless Society Coming Sometime After 2020, Sadhu Selvaraj, You Tube
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.

Common Sense Interpretation
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.

More Common Sense
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.
The Sociopath Next Door, Martha Stout
CS Commentary: A great book for the environment of politics, because this is where a lot of the 4 out of 100 people who are psychopaths/sociopaths end up.

How To Ask Someone To Pay You Back Without Being Awkward, Natalia Lusinski, Bustle
CS Commentary: One thing the article misses is that you should always loan – if you decide to loan, which we don’t necessarily endorse – with the understanding of how and when the money will be paid back. For example, before handing over any amount ask simply, “If I were to loan you what you asked, when will you be able to pay it all back?” This sets up an expectation for repayment right off the bat that will make it easier for you to go to them with the request in the future, assuming you need to do that, which you most likely will. Buying a meal for someone, we do not include in the category of loans because the next time you get together when the check comes you simply say, “I paid last time, so I’ll let you pick it up this time.”

‘A Star Is Born’ Film Review, David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter; Also see, Bradley Cooper On Personal Story Behind ‘A Star Is Born,’ NPR
CS Commentary: ‘A Star Is Born’ is probably the best film we’ve seen since ‘The Greatest Showman’. It is a great story with even greater music and will probably be nominated for Best Picture. However, Cooper and his co-writers could have updated the story a little further and injected more hope and understanding into what remains a decidedly ‘French’ film type attitude and ending. Hollywood films are largely ignorant of the hope faith in God provides – and it shows here more than ever.

‘Sharp Objects’ TV Review, Hollywood Reporter
CS Commentary: For the first 7 of the 8 episodes, Gillian Flynn’s (Gone Girl) ‘Sharp Objects’ works beautifully, drawing you into to its shocking web of destruction. Even if you are like us and able to spot the true villain – who won’t be revealed until the last episode – the intensity of the ride is not diluted. This is a drama that pulls back the veil over dysfunctional families and systems, especially those in small towns, and is made even more relevant amid the false accusations of the Kavanaugh case. The only bone we have to pick with the series is the alternating frustration and elation of the last episode and the questions that it leaves – but everything is written with a sequel in mind these days,we’ll see these characters again.
