Joyner Responds to Article Concerning Martial Law


Looks like Joyner felt compelled to respond to the articles and blogs made concerning his message about Martial Law being a necessity. As usual he speaks out of both sides of his mouth.

Case in point:

He starts put by stating, “I am not advocating martial law” (in bold print) and then follows up with “However, it is inevitable”.  Aha!

 

Also, “To navigate safely through the storms we are entering will take the wisest and most decisive leadership we have ever had. When martial law comes, who the martial is will be critical. We need to pray for someone who is like George Washington…”

This guy is a hoot!  And we can believe this “who” he mentions is already being groomed by the NAR leaders to be the next George Washington. As far fetched as it sounds one name pops to mind; Lt. Gen. (Ret.) W.G. (Jerry) Boykin. He and Joyner have been big buddies for awhile now–even appearing together on stage and on a number of middle east prophecy videos.  Run a search on that name: Jerry Boykin, then add Rick Joyner and Jerry Boykin.  You’ll see what I mean…

Anyway, Joyner’s Response: The Straw That Breaks The Camel’s Back

  1. More about Joyner’s authoritarianism from Let Us Reason Ministries:

    Joel’s Army:

    “…This [Dominionist] concept of unity was tried by the Catholic Church to integrate religion with the state and politics. And it became the downfall of a Church that was kept pure by persecution. We may yet see the “holy wars” like the early Holy Roman Empire revived to try and produce what only Christ can as the Prince of Peace.

    “Rick Joyner who seems to be a main promoter of an end time army wrote from his visions about “a bloody civil war” in the Church. (Latter Rain Revival, 1996) that the blues and the grays in his end-time war scenario in the church is that just likened to the American Civil war…

    “… read his writings and it won’t be long before they see certain Christians demonized in graphic detail. To be rational one must use their mind, something of which he has already drawn a line in the sand on his own imaginary battlefield as the enemy. As he has accused the brethren of not being spiritual, even to the point of identifying the “Antichrist” as the orthodox church. (Weighed and Found Wanting, Bill Randles, p. 64.) …

    “May we have the full armor of God on as Joel’s army begins to march and challenges the historic view of Christianity. Yes, there just may be a civil war, but it certainly would not be necessary if those who aggressively want to change the Church and the world by power would get back to the literal interpretation of the Scriptures for its guidance, and let God be God.”

      Yes, this is true. He also alludes to this coming Church civil war (blues and grays) in a number of his early books including “The Final Quest”.

      From a lighthouse trails document:

      BLUES AND GRAYS

      Over the past several years I have had the opportunity to travel to many different countries around the world. In every country Christians are telling me their churches are being divided. Some leaders are saying this division is necessary. Christianity is about to be purified through a civil war, they say. Is this behavior indicative of a revival as some claim? Or is this exactly what occurred in the past when enlightened Christians became the manifested sons of God?
      …………………………………………………………….

      Not long ago I read an article written by Rick Joyner called the Coming Civil War in the Church. In this article, Joyner stated he believed a civil war would soon be breaking out within the church. He stated: “There is a huge portion of the church which is being held bondage to the same religious spirit that manifested itself to the Pharisees, and it will attack any new movement that arises in the church. The more anointed the new movement is, the more these traditionalists will be threatened by it, and the more vehemently they will attack it.”

      Joyner’s solution for removing the people who opposed this “anointed new move” sounds rather militant.

      Listen to what he said:

      “The longer we continue to compromise with such institutions which use manipulation or control for the sake of unity or for any reason the more it will ultimately cost us to remove the cancer from our midst.”

      Mr. Joyner then went on to describe how the conflict in the church will develop:

      “The coming spiritual civil war will be between the Blue’s and the Gray’s. In dreams and visions blue often represents heavenly-mindedness, and gray speaks of those who live by the power of their own minds – which is equivalent to the brain’s gray matter. This will be a conflict between those who may be genuine Christians, but who live mostly according to their natural minds and human wisdom, and those who follow the Holy Spirit.”

      This spiritual elitism based upon those who are following the Spirit and those who are not, is sweeping the world. Although not everyone is familiar with the concept of the two camps – the Gray’s and the Blue’s – churches all over the world are certainly experiencing the fallout from this kind of a divisive theology.

      I am concerned where this idea of labeling Christians – Blue’s and Gray’s will end. During the Latter Rain movement of the 1940’s groups of people throughout North America were saying something very similar. They said God was doing something new. This new breed was called the Overcomers, Joel’s Army or the Manifested Sons of God. Eventually these spiritual giants separated themselves from other believers entirely. Some even stopped praying to Jesus. They themselves had become so spiritual they considered themselves to be God.

      The civil war created by the Latter Rain of the forties devastated Christian families, churches and fellowships. It seems to me history is repeating once more. Is the coming civil war that is being predicted a sign true revival is ahead or is this just another sign we are in the apostasy the Bible says will happen in the last days?

      I am Roger Oakland. This has been a biblical perspective to help understand the times.

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
