Tuesday night was another special moment of time during our prophetic conference here at Morningside. In a sermon choc full of the most amazing teaching, Rick Joyner mesmerized the audience with his quick wit and revelations on our relationship with God. From the beginning of his teaching, Pastor Joyner made it clear how special we are to the Lord.
“In the expanse of this universe, this whole planet is but a speck of dust, but God has made it infinitely more valuable because HE said he wants to come here and live with US!”
When giving a summary of all of the ways the world could end, Joyner listed a few…
“Gamma rays are powerful and scientist say they are hitting the earth with intense radiation constantly. A gamma ray can completely destroy us. How we get through a day without being annihilated by gamma rays is amazing.
Meteorites: there are hundreds out there ready to hit this earth every moment, set to wipe out life as we know it and yet, they do not. How do we get through a day without one hitting us?
A super volcano such as Yellowstone, if it went off with even half of it’s power there would be no life left on this earth. How we get through a day astounds me!
The entire world is in economic distress and could collapse at any moment, and nobody understands why it isn’t. How we last day after day is incredible.
But, I know why we are here each day, it is because we are being kept. We are being protected and looked after. God is keeping us and will only allow what is for our good to happen.”
Pastor Joyner encouraged us to work toward a true friendship with God. We go in steps as we mature as Christians. First we are converts, we accept the Lord into our hearts, but that is just the beginning.
Next, we become disciples. Jesus showed us that to be a disciple one must be changed from what we are and fill up with the Word of God to become something else. As a disciple we choose to serve God… but we must also choose to be His friend and truly love Him.
“Every one of us are as close to God as we want to be. If we are not close to him, it’s not his problem, it’s us. The ultimate answer to every human problem is that we need God!”
