Rick Joyner Attacks Chief Justice John Roberts


As Kyle has been documenting, there is no shortage of rhetorical excess from right-wing leaders upset about the Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act. But the response from Rick Joyner, head of MorningStar Ministries and the dominionist Oak Initiative, has to be among the most unhinged.

Joyner is embraced by other right-wing leaders, appearing at the Awakening conferences organized by the Liberty Counsel and the Freedom Federation, a Religious Right super-group of which Joyner’s organization is a member. Sen. Jim DeMint spoke earlier this month at a “Freedom Congress” organized by Joyner.

In a “special bulletin” appropriately titled “Dazed and Confused,” Joyner goes after Chief Justice John Roberts with literally hellish relish. Roberts’ reasoning, he says, “could potentially open the biggest gate of hell into our nation and culture by the Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade” and “has potentially released the most evil hounds from hell against the American people.”

Joyner even suggests that Roberts is, quite literally, on drugs:

It is understandable that some are now making the assertion that Chief Justice Roberts’ medication used to control his epilepsy has taken a toll on his mental abilities and reasoning. Nothing else has come forward as an adequate explanation for why he would be the one to free Obamacare like he did to become the biggest grab of totalitarian power over America in history.

“This decision,” says Joyner, “has deepened our national crisis, and jeopardized our Constitution at a most inopportune and dangerous time.”

It now seems that the American Republic is under unrelenting attack from every possible direction. Let us not faint, but keep in mind that the greatest victories only come when there are great battles. No doubt this will wake up many more Americans to the battle we are in. Great souls run to the sound of battle, not away from it. America still has many great souls who will fight regardless of the odds against them, and who will stand and never surrender for the sake of the freedom that was their birthright. This Supreme Court Decision has only increased the volume of the alarm and we can expect many more to hear it now.

Chief Justice Roberts’ mental abilities are being questioned by the deceived (and deceiver) Rick Joyner? This guy didn’t have to travel far to finally lose the rest of his ‘marbles’ and it appears he’s finally went the last mile.

  1. If ever there was a theological oxymoron, his “brief” has to be one that is right up there with the best of them?

    What I just read Joyner said contradicts the Scriptures apparently he holds too and is guided by? He and his words daze and confuse me!

    His words read more like a platform of a political party himself being truly dazed and confused about the Lordship of Christ?

    What I don’t get a sense of when reading his brief is this:

    Mat 22:15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted how to entangle him in his words.
    Mat 22:16 And they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are true and teach the way of God truthfully, and you do not care about anyone’s opinion, for you are not swayed by appearances.
    Mat 22:17 Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”
    Mat 22:18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why put me to the test, you hypocrites?
    Mat 22:19 Show me the coin for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius.
    Mat 22:20 And Jesus said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?”
    Mat 22:21 They said, “Caesar’s.” Then he said to them, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

    Or, how about this broad stroke of God’s ordained authority Christ holds over all nations of the world:

    1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
    1Co 15:23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.
    1Co 15:24 Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power.
    1Co 15:25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.

    Or, how about this personal touch by Him applying the same Godly ordained authority:

    Php 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
    Php 3:21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

    Can you point to any dazed or confused wording in any of those Words that comes from Christ through Paul?

    In light of Jeremiah 17:5-6 I am dazed and confused when I read this sentence from his brief:

    Is there any part of our government that we can trust anymore.

    “Anymore”? Hmmmm, ok, so doesn’t that sentence imply his group is trusting in some portion of the United States government instead of obeying and upholding it?

    Or, how about this one, too:

    This is no small matter, but this reasoning could potentially open the biggest gate of hell into our nation and culture by the Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade.

    Isn’t he implying in that sentence that the Chief Justice has a power over the gate of hell?

    Scripture teaches those who have been given the gift to hear what the Spirit establishes as Truth that Jesus holds secure both the power and the authority over the keys of death and hades? ( See Revelations 1:17-8 )

    Well, how about this sentence?

    Now it has potentially released the most evil hounds from hell against the American people.

    Hmmmmm? I guess Rick Joyner hasn’t considered what God showed Jesus who showed John Who has authority to release the most evil hounds from hell against the American people:

    Rev 5:1 Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals.
    Rev 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?”
    Rev 5:3 And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it,
    Rev 5:4 and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
    Rev 5:5 And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”

    In light of the authority given to the Lion of the tribe of Judah, I would point to just one of the seven seals He will open (the second seal) to undercut his contention that Chief Justice Roberts has authority to release the most evil hounds from hell on the people:

    Rev 6:3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!”
    Rev 6:4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

    Me thinks I would be more concerned about that rider, might we say, a hound of heaven riding that bright red horse than any hound of hell?

    Ok, here’s some more from his brief:

    “… and will continue to do so if we can find leaders who will keep their vow to defend it, and abide by it.”

    Hmmmmm, guess Jesus’ authority is being usurped by man’s in direct contradiction to the Word of God about leaders?

    No, not so fast there buddy Rick!

    That stuff is absurd in light of this:

    Rom 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.
    Rom 13:2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.

    Well the hits just keep on coming. How about this sentence from his brief which directly contradicts Jesus’ Word:

    This decision has deepened our national crisis, and jeopardized our Constitution at a most inopportune and dangerous time.

    Jesus’ Words: Mat 10:34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

    I sincerely hope when Joyner writes this at his conclusion: Great souls run to the sound of battle, not away from it., he had in mind these great souls written about here:

    1Ch 16:31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”

    Psa 149:5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.
    Psa 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
    Psa 149:7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
    Psa 149:8 to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
    Psa 149:9 to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the LORD!

    ???????????????????? !

    • His words read more like a platform of a political party himself being truly dazed and confused about the Lordship of Christ?

      Michael, you’re right. A thought came to me after reading Joyner’s bulletin about seeing/viewing Christianity, the Word, (and Christ Himself) through the distorted lens of politics. Michael, many Christians are doing just that today. Joyner is a prime example.

  3. This is funny. Prior to the SC decision the following “prayer strategy” appeared on the website of The Oak Initiative which is Joyners political action group. It has since been removed from that site.

    A Note from The Oak Initiative

    The following is a note from one of our leaders in Michigan. It is in regard to prayer for the Supreme Court Justices and their review of the constitutionality of ‘ObamaCare’. The hearings started yesterday. Please pray!

    As I woke up this morning, I began to pray for the US Supreme Court and its decision as they listen to arguments on the Constitutionality of what is commonly known as Obamacare. I know how I feel about it, but found myself easily praying my will into the situation. The American people have become ruled by self with no absolute truth, so praying “our desires” has become increasingly easy in the modern American Church. I asked Holy Spirit for a strategy to pray and believe I received immediate revelation for a prayer strategy.

    Before stating the strategy, it is important to understand the background to which a strategy such as this has been applied before. The strategy involves invoking the help of angels without praying to or demanding help from the angels themselves. Our petitions must go before the Father so as to ask Him to send the angels to do the work they were created to accomplish. At the founding of the Healing Rooms of Grand Rapids, we discovered that we could loose healing angels to affect people’s lives who were suffering from sickness and injury. We saw fantastic results. Likewise when a family or friend did not know Jesus and remained resistant to the Gospel we would pray, “Father, I ask that you loose angels to turn the heart of “name” toward the Father that they would experience the Father’s love”. God will not change a person’s will, but will send angels to position that person to receive His love. His love breaks all barriers. Many have come to Christ after being “repositioned” to experience God’s love. They then choose to align their will to His.

    The strategy for the nine US Supreme Court judges that are hearing the case of constitutionality on Obamacare involves asking the Father to send angels to prick the hearts of the judges that they would follow the original intent of the framers of the Constitution. The revelation that came was that there were angels present when the Constitution was framed. Let’s call them framing angels. Our nation was founded on Biblical principles and the Godly men who drafted our nation did so with the help of framing angels. Our prayer strategy is that the Father would loose the same angels that were present at the foundation of our nation to influence the hearts of those who now judge. I think it is time that the prayers of the saints make these group of angels busy once again, not just for the issue of Obamacare, but for many governmental decisions taking place.

    Join in prayer: “Father, we ask that you would send once again the framing angels who were present at the forming of the United States of America. Send them now to the nine US Supreme court judges to turn their hearts to the Father that they would experience the depths of your love. Cause them to judge righteously and reveal to them the intentions of our Founding Fathers who themselves prayed for divine guidance when they drafted the US Constitution. Let a holy Presence come into their chambers that they could not deny the intention of law in favor for political correctness. Send the framing angels not just to the judicial branch of government but to the legislative and executive branches as well. Allow them to bring a new awakening to government and America. In Jesus name, amen.”

    • O for Pete’s sake! “Framing Angels”?….what a crock!

      But what really gets me is this; They pray but don’t accept the answer (outcome) to the situation. In this instance the health-care mandate being upheld. ‘If’ they really believe God hears their petition, then why not accept the result was God’s response?

      The obvious answer is they want God to “bend” to their political desires.

  4. This is just one more example of conservatives implementing liberal strategies that they have rightly condemned for years. As long as I can remember, conservative Christians have criticized liberal churches for their political activism. And look where we have ended up today. Now conservative Christians are making every effort to out do liberal Christians when it comes to political activism. And in this instance specifically, conservative Christians have always criticized judges for judicial activism or legislating from the bench. Now conservative Christians are criticizing Justice Roberts for refusing to legislate from the bench and sending this law back to the legislative branch for resolution. In fact, conservative Christians are attacking his refusing to be a judicial activist by accusing him of being a judicial activist. So attacks like Joiner’s are not only totally unbiblical, as Michael has clearly demonstrated, but also brain dead AND based on the very principles that they themselves rejected for decades as being a betrayal of the gospel. And for certain, it is without doubt a betrayal of the gospel. Justice Roberts has made it fairly clear that AVOIDING judicial activism in this case was a big concern for him. What he did, he did, ironically, with old-fashion conservative principles in mind. And for that he is being bludgeoned by conservatives from every direction. The whole world is going mad and only in Christ can we preserve our sanity!

    • To everything you said George, a big Amen!

      If it wasn’t so spooky listening to all the conservatives openly attacking Roberts for his decision, it would actually be funny. For they have become what they claim to hate.

      And became a Tyrant in his stead.” — William Blake

  5. “America still has many great souls who will fight regardless of the odds against them, and who will stand and never surrender for the sake of the freedom that was their birthright.”

    Behold his gods

  6. Did the angels help to write the Establishment Clause? I am seeing the wisdom in the separation of church and state more now than ever.

    • I am seeing the wisdom in the separation of church and state more now than ever.

      Amen Louise. Jesus said his Kingdom is not of this world.
