Well, the election frenzy is over, and like many of you, I’m glad because I was so sick of it, the lies, the blarney, the promises that will be broken that were never intended to be kept in the first place. But today I happened to come across this on YouTube that blew me away. Now, I know there are many on the Internet that “like” Rick Joyner, and see nothing wrong or dangerous about him, claiming that if a “man of God” has repented of some besetting sin, then I suppose we should all embrace him, have a big group hug, and go back to setting under his teaching, (kinda like the Jimmy Swaggart thing). Well, I’m not buying that. But anyway, I never followed Rick Joyner in the first place, but what little I do know about him has red flags all over it, and I’m talking about what he’s been up to recently. And I’m going to cite this video that was made during an interview on the Jim Baker show, (another false prophet), but that was posted on Right Wing Watch, who posted the video on YouTube. Good heavens folks! Since when do unbelievers have more discernment than Christians about what is true, wholesome and godly?
Before the election, I posted several posts concerning the falsehood of “The White Horse Prophecy”, as well as the outrageous promotion of Mitt Romney by many evangelical Christians. It was absolutely staggering the deception that was occurring during this election season.
I ask in this post, “Should Christians be Concerned?” Apparently Rick Joyner isn’t? And thought at the time of this video that it would be wonderful if Mitt Romney were to be elected, because, in his faulty opinion, Mitt Romney would then fulfill “The White Horse Prophecy”. This is absolutely appalling that someone who is apparently popular within a major segment of Christianity could make such a crazy statement.Popular or not, he is so far off base in his discernment it’s astonishing to me that he has a following left to support his so-called ministry.
Joyner says in the video he has researched “The White Horse Prophecy”, and KNOWS the false prophet Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon religion is who prophesied this nonsense, yet, Joyner continues to wax eloquent endorsing Mitt Romney, just as Pat Robertson, Billy Graham and many other so-called evangelical Christians. Or, are they evangelical or indeed, are they even Christians? Folks, I am just at the place where I am starting to believe they aren’t, and that the bulk of right-wing Christianity has gone haywire and become apostate. I am not going to be a part of this ecumenism, making alliances with the world. Making a covenant with death and hell! How about you? Are you willing to come out from amongst them, so that you don’t have to partake of their sins…or their plagues!
Finally, I am not overwhelmed with joy that Mr. O has been reelected, but on the other hand I wouldn’t have been pleased if Romney had been elected either. Romney has been dumped and will not be sitting in the White House, eating organic peanut butter and honey sandwiches on croissants, but what I am going to remind my Christian friends of, once again, Mormonism is not the kissing cousin of Christianity. It is not Christian by any stretch of the imagination, and that is what it would take to believe that it was….imagination!
Friends, Christians are loosing their discernment. We are not to embrace false religions in the name of peace and unity. Christians who believe, as some of our Christian “leaders” such as Billy Graham, Pat Robertson and many others who want you to believe Mormons are our Christian brothers- are selling you a bill of goods. Don’t buy it! Jesus Christ, our Savior and redeemer is seated at the right hand of God the Father…but not on a planet named Kolob.
Russell, I haven’t had cable for years, (by personal choice), so I was not familiar with either this new Jim Bakker show, (why not The Jesus Show I wonder?),…or Morningstar Ministries, so I looked them both up on Google. As far as the JB show, what a tawdry excuse for a ministry. And what a lot of name dropping that goes on there, Rick Joyner this and Rick Joyner that, etc.
In any case, I had been wondering lately, what’s the big deal about this Rick Joyner anyway? He doesn’t ring a bell in my spirit, and I had watched a couple of very unpleasant videos concerning him on YouTube, the most disturbing of which was “Rick Joyners Circus”, so….when I got his website pulled up, I was absolutely staggered at the magnitude of power involved in this set up, not to mention the amount of money it must pull in to support it, all of which is coming from tax free donations, and of course the hawking of books, tapes, CD’s and “Jesus junk” and I mean no disrespect by that latter comment regarding our Savior. On the contrary, I feel He is being disrespected and misrepresented.
And for their “prophecies…?? I wouldn’t set my watch by the time either one of them gave me….. believe…..take seriously…. or even take a chance on anything that comes out of their mouths, because somewhere they are going to slip in some big time deception. I do know that from listening to a bit of Joyners streaming and steaming bovine scatology in one of his post election predictable drivels.
Your other comment on a different post about something needing to be done. Agreed! Sound the alarm from the highest mountain. People need to be warned. Not about all the end earthquakes, floods, and famines so much as they need to be warned about these “clowns” as you put it.
If you have anything else along the lines of monitoring some of the more obvious errors in either of these :ministries, please send it…as it’s needed and appreciated. Thanks for stopping by.
Jesus bless you,
SPOT ON! I am amazed out how gullible so many Christians can be when it comes to this. I personally think that many of these “prophets” looked at their “polls” and felt it was safe to say “Thus saith the Lord”. Then they speak it. Now for anyone reading this who supports these guys. Think about it…they screwed up their prophecies. If it was anyone else you would probably say they were not of God, so why do you continue to listen to these clowns? Are you attracted to the fear they preach? What would the world be like if all of us decided to work together towards a love and help of mankind unconditionally instead of trying to convince them God hates them?
