More About Rick Joyner
Rick Joyner heads MorningStar Ministries (also known as MorningStar Publications and Ministries), which he cofounded with his wife Julie Joyner in 1985. He is also the founder, executive director, and senior pastor of MorningStar Fellowship Church based in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
Rick Joyner converted to Christianity in the early 1970s, and his ministry began following a period of spiritual renewal in his life, during which he wrote a number of books based on his assertion of a three-day prophetic revelation and vision of the state of the church and impendingend-times events.
A church he led during the late 1970s in the Raleigh, North Carolina, area broke up around 1980. Joyner resumed ministry later in the decade; some web sites say he resumed ministry around 1987.
He is closely associated with evangelist Todd Bentley, former leader of the Lakeland Outpouring. In March 2009, he announced his role guiding the rehabilitation of Bentley.
He is married to Julie Joyner and has five children: Anna, Aaryn, Amber, Ben, and Sam.
He also oversees MorningStar's University, Fellowship of Ministries, and Fellowship of Churches. He edits The MorningStar Journal and The MorningStar Prophetic Bulletin. The purpose of his ministry is the biblical mandate of Matthew 24:45–46 as well as a commitment to equip future leaders and work in relationship with current leaders to prepare and strengthen the church for the last days. This organization has several branches in North Carolina: Charlotte, Wilkesboro, Wilmington, and Winston-Salem.
Joyner is also a well-known author of more than thirty books, including his best-selling The Final Quest series published by MorningStar Publications. He is a highly sought-after speaker at international conferences. A number of his books are about the prophetic ministry in the modern church, including several books (The Harvest, The Final Quest) based on heavenly revelations he claims to have received himself, always stressing that no prophetic revelation can contradict scripture.
The Final Quest is the first book in a three book series written by Rick Joyner. First published in 1997, the book is written from the perspective of the author relating a series of open visions that he experienced. The book has been firmly accepted by some yet firmly rejected by others. This is due to the many characteristics that make it controversial among circles of conservative Evangelical Christians. Much these controversies stem from the fact that Joyner claims to have been transported to heaven and to have had extended conversations with Jesus as well as with past Saints. The book speaks of spiritual warfare and an impending 'civil war' within the church where the true and faithful Saints continue forward and those who are deadweight fall away. It also speaks of the 'throne room' where Joyner saw saints in different positions, some as 'foolish virgins' who resided far back from the throne, and others as 'overcomers' who were on thrones near the throne of Jesus. It became obvious to Joyner that many of those he considered great Christian leaders on earth were actually the least in the sight of God, and some who he considered to be 'nobodies' were actually the greatest kings in God's kingdom. Joyner saw a man who Joyner considered had 'gone off the rails' in his teaching, sitting on a great throne in the highest part of the throne room. This man is believed to be the late William Branham (although Joyner does not mention his name, his description of the man makes this obvious).
Some wish that Joyner had written the book as fiction so that the book could be marketed to a larger audience and avoid many of the controversies surrounding it, however others (including the author) say that the author can not lie about what happened to him. Joyner wrote that he is not totally sure that the conversations that he had with past Saints actually were real people, or if they were a representation of them.
Morningstar publishes a Prophetic Journal edited by Joyner quarterly, and his ministry is also known for their conferences and worship music.
In 2004 MorningStar purchased part of the Heritage USA complex (originally established by Jim Bakker and PTL in Fort Mill, South Carolina), including the Heritage Grand Hotel, which is being refurbished as a conference center and ministry base. The complex has been renamedHeritage International Ministries or H.I.M.
Joyner's organization often has been confused with Morning Star International, a denomination of churches led by founder Rice Broocks. Hence Broocks' organization recently changed its name to Every Nation.
Rick Joyner was born in 1953.

Reviews - What do customers think about Final Quest?
Read this and take what the spirit gives, whether conviction or blessing Jul 17, 2008
This book has had profound impact on several men of God who have sought God's lead and wisdom in prayer and who have found direction and conviction in that prayer, not answers in a book written by man. If you are tapped in, your spirit will discern what is for you and what is not. If you are not, you will probably post something lengthy trying to discredit that which you either don't understand or that which convicts. What would Satan be doing if he didn't have so many christians willing to cause division. Awesome book and great discussion starter. It's not doctrine, use your heart and pray about it, take the player out of the equation and see if the message has any relevance.
Powerful message for powerful times! May 14, 2008
This is one of three books (The Final Quest Series) which contain propheties about the times we live in and times to come. Personally, I found these books amazing. I also realize that there are many negative comments about this prophecy and prophecies in general. There is only one thing that really needs to be kept in mind, the Word of God.
John 16:12-14 (New International Version) 12"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.
The books are easy to read like a science fiction novel. They moved me to tears many times and revealed many truths. Of cause they are not to be treated like scripture, but Rick Joyner says that himself at the beginning of each book.
Chew up the meat, spit out the bone Dec 12, 2007
Ok, well this review will be much shorter (and not quite as critical) as the very first review was (Dante did it better). With anyone that states God has shown them things, we must be prepared to A) take it with a grain of salt, and B) apply it directly to the Word to see how it lines up. Going into this story you should expect it to be about Joyner's experiences, as if he is retelling a dream. To compare this work to Dante (whose faith has been called into extreme question, and who chose to write The Divine Comedy, not as an expression of a vision he had from God, but as a literary work and critical analysis of Catholicism), or to the Bible (Joyner never eluded to this comparison needing to be made) is a bit far fetched. To be quite honest, when I have a dream, the plot generally surrounds me and my experiences; this story does the same. If you expect this work to change your life or be something of supernatural and spiritual proportions, you will be disappointed and upset as some other reviewers have been. I enjoyed the book. More than anything, the theme of repentance (not apology) was what stood out to me, and I don't think that's spoken of enough in the Church. I have been to the church Rick Joyner founded in NC, and really enjoyed it. Bottom line though, he's a regular guy that's part of the Body, just like the rest of us. As far as this book is concerned (and like one of my professors always said), chew up the meat, and spit out the bone.
Apostacy Dec 8, 2007
I read the book when it first came out. It is all the worst of what has been written about it. Part cartoon and part mystic vision its doctrinal implications are anti-scripture with a new age thrust.
This is a book that will lead the bible illiterate into a spiritual bondage Joyner has yet to imagine.
Disappointed Nov 4, 2007
This book came highly recommended to me by a good friend but I regret to report that it is poorly written and more akin to fantasy than Christian fiction.
