About a month ago, we learned that right-wing pastor Rick Joyner, the head of MorningStar Ministries, had COVID.
That was especially ironic considering he had previously stated the U.S. would be relatively crisis-free during the global pandemic because we were one of the world’s superpowers… of prayer.
Joyner just sat for an interview with Sid Roth of It’s Supernatural! and claimed he had face-to-face conversations with God every day after getting the virus:
… It was right after the COVID when this incredible weakness came upon me. I felt like my internal battery had about 1% energy. I mean I couldn’t walk three or four feet without having to sit down, and I’d never felt that kind of weakness. And when I sat down, all of a sudden, it’s like I’m in Heaven. I was in Heaven.
And there were two thrones in front of me — the Lord was on one of them and there was a chair for me. And I just sat down and we met face to face.
And so I just thought, this is incredible what happened the second day. It went on for 15 days! 15 days! Almost everything He talked about was His coming kingdom. And everything was so profound! It’s like I’ve never seen that before. I’ve never seen that like that before. And it was so exciting…
That’s called being delirious. Joyner can’t understand the difference between fantasy and reality. It’s not weird that his sickness-fueled delusions are identical to the ones he shares when he’s healthy and lucid. Of course they would be. Joyner is just using his COVID as an excuse to spread his faith — when the only thing COVID should teach us about his faith is that it shouldn’t be trusted.
