    The Final Quest Book

    I started thinking of the Book of Revelation. "Was John's revelation part of the third heaven?" I asked. "Part of John's revelation was from the third heaven, but. A review of the book.

    The Evil Army. I saw a demonic army so large that it stretched as far as I could see. It was separated into divisions, with each carrying a different banner. The foremost and most powerful divisions were Pride, Self righteousness, Respectability, Selfish Ambition, and Unrighteous Judgment, but the largest of all was Jealousy. The leader of this vast army was the Accuser of the Brethren himself. I knew that there were many more evil divisions beyond my scope of vision, but these were the vanguard of this terrible horde from hell that was now being released against the church. The weapons carried by this horde had names on them:

    Lewis' Space Trilogy, but then, Lewis did not purport that his book to be anything but a fantasy. I have read the Pilgrim's progress, several times, but then, Bunyan did not purport that book to be anything but an allegory on the Christian life.

    This book, which contains all of the elements of allegory and fantasy that you find in other fictions, is purported by the author to be directly inspired, that is, if not the book itself, he claims that the dreams and visions recorded herein are true and from God. He asserts that there are different levels of inspiration, which I agree with, but then he goes on to define these "levels " in order to assert to his reader just what level of inspiration he claims for his own revelations.

    Level one, he says, is that of prophetic "impressions. Level three, an even higher level, he calls the level of "open visions," and finally the fourth and highest level, he describes as the "trance," and it is on this level of inspiration, the highest, that Mr. Joyner claims he received his dreams and visions. In other words, he claims a higher level of inspiration than the Apostles, when they wrote the Gospels and Epistles.

    Having read this book very carefully, I reject the claims of the author. There are three notable features of this book that I will bring to your attention as evidence that this author is just another false prophet.

    Many of the propositions asserted in this book are clearly unscriptural.

    The Final Quest: Rick Joyner: - billpercompzulbe.ml

    Throughout the narrative of this book, the author gets to be seen as the primary and exemplary character. The portrayal of the Church of Jesus Christ amounts to nothing less than a satanic slander against the saints. This book is in five parts. I will summarize and comment briefly on all five sections. I will demonstrate why this author, being puffed up in his own vain imaginations, is an heretic.

    I consider this book to be a fulfillment of this prophecy: Rev And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

    The flood of water in this prophecy, I believe, signifies the veritable deluge of false teachings that have become a torrent in Christendom these days. He writes: "I was then reminded of Abraham Lincoln. The only way that he could become 'the Emancipator,' and preserve the Union, was to be willing to fight a Civil War. He not only had to fight it, but fight with the resolution not to compromise until the victory was complete. I found this book to be one of the most self-aggrandizing pieces of literature that I have ever read.

    The larger army in opposition to Joyner's "army of the Lord," is a great horde of demons that are riding on Christians, who are completely under demonic control, dominion, and destruction. These are repeatedly described as the ones who, in the words of the author, were "seeking to pre-empt a coming move of God which was destined to sweep masses of people into the church. This is an army of demonic hordes, riding on Christians and holding Christians as prisoners, with demonic vultures "vomiting" condemnation upon their prisoners, demons "urinating and defecating" a slime of pride and selfish ambition upon the Christians they rode as beasts, and serpents of shame that bound the legs of the Christian prisoners which not even Truth could defeat.

    All the while, these demonically bound Christians are attacking and killing one another with slander and accusation. The author's description of what he sees as the reality in Christendom is quite compelling and even convincing to those won't bother to measure these matters by the Word of God.

    It is typical of effective deception that the lie is closely intertwined with truth, and this book is no different. All one has to do is to look around with a cynical eye, forget about what the Bible says, and the picture painted by Joyner seems not so far-fetched.

    That there are rampant and virulent controversies in Christendom these days is undeniable, BUT, a distinction must be made between "Christendom" which includes all christian professors, and Jesus Christ's "little flock" The Church which is described in the Bible as: the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. The writer to the Hebrews make this astonishing and contradictory statement: Heb For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

    Even the prophet Isaiah prophesied: Isa And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. Furthermore, the prophecies about the last days of this age speak neither of a Civil war nor of a great revival.

    Rev The flood of water in this prophecy, I believe, signifies the veritable deluge of false teachings that have become a torrent in Christendom these days. In this section, the author describes what he saw in his vision as a great war taking place in Christendom which he characterizes as similar to the Civil war of the past century in the United States. He writes:. The only way that he could become 'the Emancipator,' and preserve the Union, was to be willing to fight a Civil War.

    He not only had to fight it, but fight with the resolution not to compromise until the victory was complete. With that statement in mind, take note of his description of this "Civil war," in which he ends up demonizing virtually the entire Church, except of course, for him and his friends.

    I found this book to be one of the most self-aggrandizing pieces of literature that I have ever read. The larger army in opposition to Joyner's "army of the Lord," is a great horde of demons that are riding on Christians, who are completely under demonic control, dominion, and destruction. These are repeatedly described as the ones who, in the words of the author, were " seeking to pre-empt a coming move of God which was destined to sweep masses of people into the church.

    It is impossible in a short space to do justice to the awful picture drawn by the author of the unbelievable demonic characterization of the opposing army. This is an army of demonic hordes, riding on Christians and holding Christians as prisoners, with demonic vultures "vomiting" condemnation upon their prisoners, demons "urinating and defecating" a slime of pride and selfish ambition upon the Christians they rode as beasts, and serpents of shame that bound the legs of the Christian prisoners which not even Truth could defeat.

    That there are rampant and virulent controversies in Christendom these days is undeniable, BUT, a distinction must be made between "Christendom" which includes all christian professors, and Jesus Christ's "little flock" The Church which is described in the Bible as: The apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, describes The Church in terms obviously contradictory to those we find in Joyner's vision:.

    Eph 2: Isa Nowhere in the language of Scripture do we find the kinds of descriptions of God's people that we find in Joyner's book. Furthermore, the prophecies about the last days of this age speak neither of a Civil war nor of a great revival. The unanimous testimony of the apostles and prophets is that in the last days of this age, Christendom not The Church shall be characterized by apostasy: We are nowhere told to expect things to get better but only worse.

    So much worse, in fact, that our Lord Jesus Christ, Himself, asked the question: Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find [the] faith on the earth? There shall be an unstoppable incursion of wickedness within Christendom, but, the end result will be the welcoming of the Antichrist, NOT a glorious victory of The Church before the return of Christ.

    There is no "final conflict" before the return of Christ, and this "final conflict" is an underlying and false premise of this book. Joyner spent a lot of time talking to people on the outer fringes of heaven--The Foolish Virgins--who got into heaven by the skin of their teeth and were cast out into utter darkness because of how they had failed God. However, all that weeping and gnashing of teeth is in the past now and they are content to stand in the outer limits of God's glory.

    It was of interest to me that some of Joyner's enemies were in this group. I love fictional revenge.

    Now, I don't know how heaven is going to operate. There may well be a ranking system, although the parable of the vineyard workers seems to point away from that. The way Joyner describes it, though, seems like a very wordly meritocracy. While the lowly people are content to be lowly and relatively far from the throne, it's hard for me to envision unity in heaven if it is so rigorously hierarchical.

    It doesn't seem in character with who God is or how heaven is described in the Bible. It strikes me as an entirely human conception. On top of that, there are many thrones in heaven alongside or along with Jesus' throne, and the saints that sit on these thrones are given charge over galaxies and cities.

    That's just weird. What do the galaxy rulers do all day?

    Final Quest Books

    Planet, spin. Now, spin faster. Comets, collide. The city rulers thing gives credence to the idea of patron saints, which I don't think is biblical.

    Another problem I have with the theology is that The Final Quest propagates the idea of a great endtime revival and restoration.

    Joyner writes that the church in the last days will do great signs and wonders which will amaze all the people and confound the demonic horde.

    The church will be elevated and take its rightful place in the world. But everything in the Bible points to the endtimes being not so much fun. I don't get it. More crucially, Joyner's conversation in the book with dead apostle Paul is very worrying. Paul tells Joyner that the church has misconstrued his epistles because it takes them as foundational texts.

    The Final Quest

    They are not foundational. Only Jesus' words are foundational. Paul's writings are to be viewed in light of what Jesus said, not the other way around. I don't really know what Joyner's trying to get at here, but I wonder if he mightn't be a bit confused.

    Jesus did not physically write any of the books of the Bible. In the gospels, His words are related by others. Just as in the epistles, the words of God are related by the New Testament writers. There's no difference. All scripture is God-breathed.
