Rick Joyner


You'll have to excuse the lack of entries recently, but 1. There isn't always much new to write about and, 2. I exhibited lack of faith and got sick. Serves me right!

Some have asked about the beliefs of Rick Joyner (Morningstar Ministries). Although he generally isn't quite as careless as Kim Clement, he does claim to be a prophet. Here is an excerpt from a recent prophecy from the Elijah List:

THE CHURCH IS BEING PREPARED TO RULE WITH HER KING -- AND THE WEALTH OF THE NATIONS WILL BE COMING TO US


We, too, are about to come out of our slavery, and the wealth of the nations will be coming to us. What are we going to do with it? The Lord is trying to prepare and mature us, so that it is not frivolously wasted or greedily consumed on ourselves, but is used for what will be of maximum benefit to us and to all of mankind--to build Him a dwelling place just as Israel did in the wilderness.

...Like Israel, the Church has been in slavery, is being set free, is learning how to manage unprecedented wealth and resources, and is being prepared to rule over the earth with her King as soon as the iniquity of the world is complete. That is, when sin has come to full maturity so that the earth can no longer bear it.


Great! Perhaps Rick can revive Heritage USA once again with all that money! By the way, he said the same thing December 31st, 1999 on TBN. We're still waiting!!!

Isn't it interesting how so many leaders try to appeal to people by promising them wealth?

What does he think comprises the true church? In an earlier prophecy he wrote:

The Lord said that He would build His church, and the true church is being built by the Lord, on a foundation that is Him. However, He is using men who compose His body to do the work. He uses men to lead, through the councils of apostles and elders, such as He used in the first century.

...As I said in the beginning of this study, if we are not going to be deceived in these times, we need to spend much more time seeking to understand what Christ is doing, than what the antichrist is doing. Likewise, I think we should spend much more time studying true Christianity (rather than the counterfeits).

True, Rick, but by studying true Christianity you learn to recognize the counterfeits.
