While preaching at a “School of the Spirit” class at his MorningStar Church last Friday night, right-wing pastor Rick Joyner declared that the world will soon see a wave of modern-day Christian prophets who will “exceed anything that was done by Old Covenant prophets” like Moses, so much so that they’ll be able to release newspapers accurately reporting on events a week in advance.
“We’re in desperate need of such prophets right now in the world,” he said. “We should be able to put newspapers out a week before the date and then go for longer; including sports. You don’t need to watch the Super Bowl, I’m going to tell you what’s going to happen.”
Joyner claimed that he had actually experienced a “foretaste” of that gift several years ago when he and fellow “prophet” Bob Jones supernaturally received the scores of several World Series games before they had even been played.
“We were having a conference when the World Series was going on and Bob and I both got some of the scores of the games before the games were played,” he said. “We didn’t tell anybody—we wrote them down, hid ’em, but didn’t tell anybody because we didn’t want anybody gambling on them.”
