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 Vision (2-In-1)?
The truth about spiritual warfare Jun 25, 2007
There's no other way for me to put it other than... the Vision really sheds light on to the whole spiritual warfare. Before reading this book spiritual warfare was a hard thing for me to grasp, but now I feel like I have a new and fresh understanding. This is a must-read. I personally had a hard time reading most Christian books, but this one is fast paced, fully of adventure and spiritual truths! You won't be disappointed.
The Vision A Two-in-one Volume Of The Final Quest And The Call Jun 2, 2007
The best Christian book (after the Bible) I have EVER read (and I read many). If you have a hunger for God's depths, this book is a must. It is prophesy-inspired and yet incredibly Christ-centered. The Word and the Spirit are in balance here. It truly highlights the difference between condemnation and divine conviction. Every word is a bit of heaven and it makes your vision clearer; it helps see the world from God's perspective and reconsider many habitual patterns. The best is perhaps that on each page you would be compelled to stop and take some time to sit quietly, overwhelmed with repentance; you would experience the joy of freedom, letting go of the bondage of self-centeredness and self-deception, and crave for more conviction. This is not a book to read fast; its wisdom is not to be digested at once. I have found that my friends throughout all denominations are impressed with this book, including Protestants, Catholics and Greek Orthodox. It is very powerful indeed. I also recommend "The Prophetic Ministry" by the same author.
Awesome, Deep, Could not put it down Jan 24, 2007
This is a very unusual book. One you start reading it, it is very hard to stop. Just when you think there could not possibly be any more surprises, you encounter another one.
This book has incredible Christian spiritual insight. It is one of those books that I had to buy for others close to me, and this combination book of The Final Quest and The Call is definitely a good buy.
Another book Rick Joyner came out with is The Surpassing Greatness of His Power. I am reading that now. He had another followup book to these two called something like Prophecy in the 21st Century which I also read and loved.
But, these books are so awesome -- very symbolic and intensely enlightening and very deeply Biblical and Christian and helps us see how the full armor of God operates--the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shield of faith, the sword of the spirit and the Gospel of Peace, and how these operate in the spirit as Christians fight a spiritual battle against the devil, sometimes climbing higher and higher and getting out of reach of various weapons of the enemy, but then some go back down into the battle again to rescue others and so on. There is no way I can do this book justice in this little review, but I very highly recommend it.
A true journey Jan 19, 2007
This is the best sense of the spiritual battle that rages all around us I have ever encountered. If you want to learn the schemes of the evil one and how Christ counters so the Christians win, this is a must read. Revelation power to understand how to stand firm and get in closer realtionship with the Lord is seen trhough this author's eyes in ways most of us would miss. I enjoyed this gimplse into heaven.
We NEED Wisdom in this hour. We find it in the REVELATION given within The Vision Jan 16, 2007
My husband and I have found Rick Joyner's book, The Vision, meets us "exactly where we are at". The Vision puts "into FOCUS" that which I believe the Holy Spirit HAS BEEN declaring within God's children through Christ...bringing clarity, bringing wisdom, bringing revelation.
The Vision, with the spiritual lessons found on every page, is for anyone who desires more of Christ, and wisdom in how to walk WITH HIM in victory. We LOVED the book for it confirmed many things the Holy Spirit had already communicated to our own hearts prior to the read; which stabilized us even more in The Truth. We thank the Lord to men who are willing to reveal to others what God has revealed to them.
