What Does Rick Joyner Really Believe?

In Morningstar Ministries Statement of Faith, Joyner writes:

Jesus was born of a virgin, by the seed of the Holy Spirit. His virgin birth is a testimony that only the Spirit can beget that which is Spirit. Those of the new creation are not solely of human origin, but are born from above by the Holy Spirit. The resurrection of Jesus' physical body after His crucifixion was literal, as will be the resurrection of both the just and the unjust on the Day of Judgment.
However, in a book called There Were Two Trees In The Garden he writes:

Many who are born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit reflect no change in their approach to life. Though external behavior patterns may have changed, they continue to be primarily cognizant of the material realm. This may be due to the way they relate to Jesus. There is a tendency to continue relating to Him as "the MAN from Galilee." Jesus is not a man. He was and is Spirit. He took the form of a servant and became a man for a brief time. (Joyner, Rick, "The Antithesis to Babylon," in There Were Two Trees In the Garden, [Morningstar Publications] page 59)
So what does he believe - that Jesus disposed of His body after the ascension?
