A few quotes from the New Apostles/Prophets – Latter-Rain – Joel’s Army movement:
A bold, courageous new leadership is arising that is going to be used to bring radical change. They will be resisted and persecuted, especially by those whose leadership is threatened, but change will prevail. The biggest change that the church needs is a change of leadership, and that is what we are about to get.
There are many ways that the church’s nature is going to change, and one of the most basic is that we will be taking on a military demeanor. We are called to be an army, and we will see the church become one of the most powerful, disciplined, and effective forces the world has ever known before the end of this age.
“What is about to come upon the earth is not just a revival, or another awakening; it is a veritable revolution. The vision was given in order to begin to awaken those who are destined to radically change the course, and even the very definition of Christianity. The dismantling of organizations and disbanding of some works will be a positive and exhilarating experience for the Lord’s faithful servants…the Lord will raise up a great company of prophets, teachers, pastors and apostles that will be of the spirit of Phinehas … this “ministry of Phinehas” will save congregations, and at times, even whole nations. …Nations will tremble at the mention of their name...”(THE HARVEST, Rick Joyner)
“In the near future we will not be looking back at the early church with envy because of the great exploits of those days, but all will be saying that He certainly did save the best wine for last. The most glorious times in all of history have not come upon us. You, who have dreamed of one day being able to talk with Peter, John and Paul, are going to be surprised to find that they have all been waiting to talk to you.” (Rick Joyner, The Harvest Morning Star, 9, 1990)
” The early church was a first fruits offering, truly this will be a harvest! It was said of the Apostle Paul that he was turning the world upside down; it will be said of the apostles soon to be anointed that they have turned an upside down world right side up.” (Rick Joyner, The Harvest, 128-129)
” ...this army is totally unique. This army, there’s never been one like it and there never will be one like it in ages to come. …Its so mighty that there’s never been anything like it before. Not even Moses, not even David, not even Paul. What’s going to happen now will transcend what Paul did, what David did.. That is the ultimate in Apostolic government.
