Here in the first video, we have what is apparently a typical service at Rick Joyner’s “Morning Star church”, where it is claimed God is doing a new thing, that there is a real move of the spirit going on and setting people free. Really? Well, let’s take a look at what’s going on at this Rick Joyner service. Now, remember, they are claiming here that these people are Christians and are receiving a manifestation of the Holy Spirit via some “impartation”, and that their body movements are a sign of what the Holy Spirit is doing in them and through them and that whatever it is, is supposed to be a “holy’ move of God and beneficial to them.
Let’s do a comparison with a service at T.B. Joshua’s SCOAN, and the Rick Joyner service. Now, although you will see the actions, behavior, and body movements of the people in the T.B. Joshua video are very similar to the one’s shown in the Rich Joyner service, these people are acting out demonic manifestations, and are in the process of being delivered and their demons cast out….rather than claiming to be receiving some “holy impartation” by the Lord via the Holy Spirit.
Folks, this is really messed up….when supposedly Christian churches and church leaders, as Rick Joyner’s is claimed to be, are opening up their services to demons and encouraging demonic activity and even imparting it into their followers. The comparison here cannot be plainer. The people are acting out this demonic activity in both videos. You may suppose that this is just an isolated incident and an extreme example….well, granted it’s extreme, but if some of you will remember similar manifestations at the Brownsville “revival” in Pensacola, the Rodney Browne fiasco and the Word of Faith manifestations that swept through the United States not that long ago, and is still going on in various quarters of the Christian Community. This is an exact example of calling evil good. Where is the discernment here?
Note: I have edited the last part of my response out because frankly it was made in a wrong spirit and admittedly out of more than just a small amount of frustration and heartache. It is my fervent desire to see the healing gifts coupled with deliverance operating in the churches as well as the highways and byways. Please forgive me if I have offended anyone. Scarlett
The Lord Jesus Christ went about doing good, healing and casting out many, many demons. He gave His believers the power to do the same, (as opposed to what you Secessionists believe). Of a certainty, the Lord Jesus wants His believers to cast demons OUT of the afflicted, NOT IMPART THEM as some of these “Christian” movements are doing!
” Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[a] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:8
Do you think that its not the christian church that is coping the satanic stuff, but that satan copies God? God is the creator and satan is the copier… What do you think happens to the human body when it encounters a Holy presence ? In the bible it talks about different encounters with Holy manifestations of God…shaking, falling down, weeping, unexplainable things!
Dont be to quick to judge…something you havent experienced for your self. What is the fruit of these type of experiences on people? Do they cause them to leave church? Do evil? Or does it cause them to seek Him more and want to serve Him and others …doing good?
We cant always explain…supernatural things, Holy things…in our earthly terms. Read revelations…the writer had great difficulty explaining heavenly things. Just something to think about.
Dear Nessa….please show me a few scriptures in the Bible where people encountered God, or Jesus Christ, and began manifesting similar effects as those in the Rick Joyner video. I didn’t detect or discern anything holy about Rick Joyner’s meeting. As it was pointed out…the manifestations resulting were identical in many ways to the demon possessed people in the T B Joshua videos, as well as East Indian Hindus practicing Kundalini.
We need razor sharp discernment on these things so that we don’t fall victim to them ourselves.
Thank you for your comment..
