Rick Joyner's Revival and Healings

Rick Joyner has a few words to say about the revival taking part at Morningstar in today's Elijah List entry:

As amazing as what we are now experiencing is, we still have a way to climb to what is just normal, Biblical Christianity. It is our right as Christians, possessors of the New Covenant with God, to see everything that happened in the Scriptures happening in our own time. The Lord is the same today as He was then. His name is not "I was," or "I will be," but "I AM." The same Holy Spirit that was present with the church in the Book of Acts is present with us today. All Christians have the same Holy Spirit with them that the Apostle Paul had and can therefore see the same power released through them that Paul or anyone else has.

...It is still amazing for us to watch our high school students pray for the handicapped, blind, deaf, or those with fatal diseases, believing God will heal them, and often He does. A few nights ago, I saw a commotion in the back of the room and found out that a couple of our high school girls had prayed for a young man in a wheelchair, who immediately got up and walked. He had multiple sclerosis and had not walked in seven years. It was not long before he was back in the wheelchair, not because the affliction had come back, but because he was so worn out from not using those muscles for so long.

...Because of the prophetic indications we have received that September 21 will be a significant date, we shifted the dates for our Harvest Conference to September 18-20, and the Worship & Warfare Conference to September 22-24, sandwiching Sunday the 21st between them.
If, as Joyner rightly says, the Lord is the same today as yesterday, why did that man go back into his wheelchair? When Jesus healed the paralytic in Matthew 9 the man got up and went home. It doesn't say he had to stop and rest because of his muscles. When Peter healed a paralytic named Aeneas who had been paralyzed for eight years in Acts 9 he was healed completely. Jesus, who is the same today as He was yesterday, heals completely, not partially.

I'd stay tuned for September 21st, but as everyone knows, nuclear war will be breaking out tomorrow according to Yisrayl Hawkins.
