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 There Were Two Trees In The Garden?
From Skeptical To Supporter Aug 2, 2007
I have to admit that I was skeptical of Rick Joyner. I have visited Morningstar in Charlotte, NC several times and at times felt it was shallow and not biblically balanced. However, my views have changed. This is not to say that I don't disagree with Joyner or Morningstar International because I do but that seems to be part of being human. None of us have perfect knowledge (1 Corinthians 13:8-13).
Therefore, when I was given this book I at first read it with a skeptical eye. I was looking for error. The irony is that this is a good book. Joyner, contrary to some of the other views given, does not promote mystical Christianity at all in this book. In fact, I found that Joyner does a good job of wrestling with the Scriptures. The book's focus is on Jesus and Joyner wants the reader not to simply have a head knowledge of Jesus but a living, vital relationship with Jesus. If that is mysticism then count me in. Joyner attacks denominations and doctrines that divide but he balances this with an emphasis on loving Jesus and sharing unity in Him. He is not pushing for blind obedience without sound doctrine but he does desire for the Church to love each other more and that is a lesson we all need to hear and obey (John 13:34-35).
Overall this is a solid book. For those skeptical of Rick Joyner and his ministry I believe you will realise that Joyner is not as far out there as you might think. In fact, you might just become a supporter as I am.
Real Insight May 14, 2007
Joyner has received revelation not common to the "big names". He is not afraid to relate the uncomfortable reality that the way up is down
Revelations Jan 19, 2007
Occasionally you read a book that opens the door to your heart for an amazing revelation from God. This is one of those. The author begins by showing that there is just as much death in the knowledge of good as there is in the knowledge of evil. It sounds simplistic, but this book helped me shift my focus from trying harder to growing more in love with Jesus getting to know more of him. The change is amazing. I highly recommend the book.
Enlightening Jul 17, 2006
The author opened my eyes to a truth that I had never realized. Glory to God.
Foundational insight Jul 7, 2006
This book presents a foundational insight based on the Garden of Eden experience of Adam and Eve: Are we interested in knowledge, or life? This principle applies to so many of the moral choices that we face.
Reading this book was a life-changing experience for me.
