Item description for Harvest (Updated & Expanded) by Rick Joyner...
Overview A brief summary of this vision was first circulated in major periodicals and countless newsletters, reaching millions in just a little over a year. Called "a prophetic word for our time" by major Christian leaders, this is the complete vision. Since this book was first released over twenty years ago, many of its prophecies have come to pass and others are still unfolding, even those that seemed the most unlikely. This is a crucial work for understanding our time.
"What is about to come upon the earth is not just a revival or another awakening; it is a veritable revolution. This vision was given in order to begin awakening those who are destined to radically change the course and even the very definition of Christianity." ? Rick Joyner

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.

Must Read Apr 26, 2010
This book should be required reading for every true believer and for those that want to become one.
Great book. Very timely. Feb 10, 2009
This is a very timely book for the end times. It was written in the 1980's but rings true in the season the Church is in. This book is great to read along with Rick Joyner's other books the The Final Quest, The Call and The Torch and the Sword.
Time will Tell Jan 13, 2009
I don't have a problem with the person of Rick Joyner,I believe him to be a sincere believer. As so much to the "predictions" "prophesies" or "visions" that he claims to have had.
I have read many of Rick's prophesies and initially thought he was a visionary writer. But in going back over the "track record" of his predictions, I noticed more and more errors or mistakes. I haven't got room to give a complete listing of them . Just maybe two of the more obvious ones. In 1989 Rick predicted the imminent fall of the Communist party in China, that a Russian type overthrow was about to happen. It didn't,the communists actually defeated the student democrats. In fact you could say over the past twenty years or so they are in just as much as in power as they ever were and have persecuted the church just as violently.
Secondly during the first Gulf War Mr Joyner said that limited nuclear weapons would be exchanged in the next Iraq war ! Given that the the Americans couldn't find any sort of Weapons of Mass destruction, that prediction was defiantly wrong.
No-where in his writings does Rick address these failings, in fact he carries on regardless, giving out every year yet more and more new prophetic writings . That to me is an indication of his error. If he'd openly discuss about even one of his past mistaken visions, it'd give hope as to his prophetic honestly and accountability. But so far I haven't seen him back down on any given word. They are according to him "all true" or "about to come to pass".
When we hear a prophecy/vision we are, according to the bible, suppose to examine/test them for truth. Isn't that right ? Then having done so, if we see over time there were mistaken or had errors, then it must surely lead us to doubt the validity of the words as coming from God's Holy Spirit ?
I take no satisfaction from casting doubt on what Rick has to say, rather sadness that such a sincere man is in error.
An absolute must! Feb 19, 2000
If you enjoyed The Final Quest or any of Joyner's other prophetic books, or if you've never read any of his material, The Harvest will not disappoint. It's much more than "the prophetic word for the 90s." The 90s are over and most of this book still applies to the future. If you want to be prepared for what God is about to do in our world, this book is the place to start. The Harvest will challenge you in your daily walk and motivate you to go deeper in order to be a ready vessel to be used by Him.
The Harvest is life-changing! Dec 29, 1999
I first read the Harvest about five years ago. It quickly pushed me out of my spiritual lethargy and into a new realm of Christianity. This book will reshape your thinking. Beware, religious Christians! God may use this book to inflict damage on your traditional mindset. If you don't want to progress in your relationship with God, then don't read this book! Nonchristians, watch out! This may be the very book to convince you of the reality of a living God, and His benefits to you!
