Response to Rick Joyner's Latest "Prophetic Word"

​"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come IN MY NAME, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many" (Matthew 24:4-5).

"Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that STEAL MY WORDS every one from his neighbour" (Jeremiah 23:30).

It is heartbreaking that a great number of Christians today do not heed the repeated warnings of Jesus about false prophets. Jesus said that some of the false prophets would come in His Name and deceive many. Most Christians have failed to understand that these deceivers would have to speak some truth in order to build a following as trusted New Testament prophets. The false prophets of Jeremiah's day were notorious for stealing the prophecies of other true prophets and interjecting their own demonic deceptions into them. The Word of God says, "Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge" (1 Corinthians 14:29). As a five-fold prophet, I not only have the right but also the responsibility to judge the prophecies and messages of other prophets.

Yesterday, I listened to a "prophetic" warning from Rick Joyner of Morning Star Ministries about an alleged dream he had. 1 He said in the dream that there was an invasion through our southern border by some really bad people and continued on to tell what would occur. As I watched his video and listened to his warning, I knew that I was witnessing a very slick deception that was shrouded in some truth. A lot of people have been deceived Rick Joyner’s smooth “prophetic words” and big ministry, but I have believed for many years that he is a Jesuit agent of the Roman Catholic Church and the New World Order. I read some of his books people gave me and attended his conferences. I even talked with him face to face in 2001 and walked away even more convinced that he is not what he appears to be.

Rick Joyner has been deceiving Charismatic and Pentecostal Christians for years. He mixes enough truth with his lies, false doctrines, and alleged godly dreams and visions to deceive those who are just looking for an experience and Word from God. His claim of communicating with dead saints and his invitation and acceptance into the Knights of Malta SHOULD have raised some eyebrows among Spirit-filled Christians. But sadly, the majority of Morning Star’s prophetic followers have turned a blind eye to Joyner’s union with a secret society that swears an oath to the Pope of Rome. They have also ignored the many “prophecies” given in his ministry with specific dates of fulfillment and then NEVER came to pass. The Word of God and obvious errors are ignored because MorningStar followers love the sensational prophecies and Kundalini manifestations of the ministry.

A couple of other red flags for Spirit-filled Christians SHOULD have been Rick Joyner’s close friendship with the late false prophet Bob Jones and his association and endorsement of Todd Bentley. Both Jones and Bentley operate in false prophecies, visualization, astral projection of their spirits out of their bodies, Kundalini manifestations and both were caught in sexual immorality in the ministry. Rick Joyner even went as far as to "restore" Todd Bentley to ministry shortly after he committed adultery, divorced his wife and married the adulteress while none of the real problems were addressed. (All of this is covered in greater detail in my book The Polluted Church: From Rome to Kansas City).

I must say the issue that disturbs me the most is Rick Joyner's obvious loyalty to Rome and in turn the New World Order. This was confirmed to me when I read his articles praising Pope John Paul II as a "great Christian leader." He even stated that John Paul led many in the Roman Catholic Church into the baptism of the Holy Spirit (this is not true). It was then that I knew that Joyner was an agent of Rome. He was not ignorant of history or how Pope John Paul II pushed Mary-worship, universalism, and a one-world government more than most other popes before him. Joyner is not ignorant of Rome’s agenda and he is passing it on to his unsuspecting followers. And then when I saw that Rick Joyner teaches and believes Dominion Theology (that the church is going to takeover the governments, arts, finance, and so on BEFORE Jesus returns) and his views on eschatology match the Vatican's views, it was just the icing on the cake. There is no doubt that Rick Joyner is a loyal soldier of Rome and the most powerful false prophet on earth—the Pope. When you put all of this together with the understanding that Revelation declares Rome to be the Great Whore who will work with the Antichrist and the UN world government,2 then you realize that Rick Joyner's subtle attack on the "right wing" and his message that "martial law will save us" comes right out of the New World Order playbook.

All of this was confirmed as I looked into more of Rick's "ministry" associates like Nicholas F. Papanicolaou and Jorge Parrott. Papanicolaou is on the board of Rick Joyner's Oak Initiative and is in many Morningstar TV videos with Rick and Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin. So, this is not some distant acquaintance. Papanicolaou is the current Grand Master, which is the highest rank in the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem Knights of Malta. The Grand Master is elected for life by the supreme council members of the Order. This is the man who heads up the particular branch of the Knights of Malta in which Rick Joyner, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, and Jorge Parrott are initiated members. And though many try to deny that this group is associated with the Roman Catholic Church, the Grand Master Papanicolaou is in a YouTube video uploaded May 2, 2011 proclaiming that his Knights of Malta have an official "apostolic blessing from Pope Benedict XVI."3 This means that they are walking in complete unity with the Great Whore of Rome and that they totally accept the Pope as a true apostle of Jesus Christ. This is a damning indictment on Mr. Joyner and shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not a true prophet of God, but rather he is a secret agent of the Roman Church and their agenda to bring in a on world church under a one world government.

Nevertheless, it gets worse. Papanicolaou is also co-founder of the World Public Forum which is a registered NGO with the United Nations out of Austria. Here is how Papanicolaou describes the WPF: "The World Public Forum is a Non-Government Organization (NGO) registered in Vienna, Austria. (Since 2002) ...we have brought together on the island of Rhodes in Greece seven hundred distinguished guests from more than sixty countries to talk about cultural and religious topics which often divide humanity. Our guests come by invitation only and include Heads of State, government Ministers, top religious leaders from the major Christian denominations, also from Judaism, Sunni and Shia Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. We celebrate and cherish humanity at the WPF, and provide a setting that can lead to better understanding between the various religions and cultures of the world."4 And what makes this group even more suspicious (other than it's obvious ecumenical, one world, all religions lead to God focus) is that the president and primary founder of the WPF just happens to be the former USSR Soviet Ambassador to the United Nations with current connections to the Russian mafia, Mr. Vladimir Ivanovich Yakunin.

Here is Mr. Vladimir Ivanovich Yakunin's bio taken from the WPF website: "Yakunin graduated from the Leningrad Institute of Mechanics as a Mechanical Engineer in 1972 and began his career as a junior research scientist at the State Institute of Applied Chemistry. After completing military service in the Soviet Army, he worked consecutively as an engineer and senior engineer at the Administration of the State Committee of the Council of Ministers of the USSR for Foreign Trade and was also head of department at the Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Between 1985 and 1991, Mr. Yakunin was Second and then First Secretary of the USSR’s Permanent Representative Office at the United Nations. He was then Chairman of the Board at the International Centre for Business Cooperation before becoming head of the North-Western Federal District Inspectorate of the Senior Control Department of the President of the Russian Federation.

Mr. Yakunin became Deputy Minister of Transport in October 2000 and first Deputy Minister of Railways in February 2002. In October 2003, the Board of Russian Railways unanimously appointed Yakunin First Vice-President of the Company.

Vladimir Yakunin was appointed president of Russian Railways Joint Stock Company by the Government of the Russian Federation in June 2005, June 2008 and reappointed in June 2011."5

​So, once again we see the connections to the Vatican and the United Nations. These things ought to raise some serious red flags among Christians in the Pentecostal/Charismatic camps, but instead they keep drinking the Morningstar kool-aide. They just can't see that they are being seduced to accept the coming one world church headed by the Vatican and the UN world government of the Antichrist. And when I heard Rick say that "martial law will save the USA" I knew for sure that he is part of the New World Order agenda.
