I regard Rick Joyner as a spiritual father in the area of the prophetic. I have been reading his books from a young age, and have found it very insightful in understanding what God is doing in the Bride of Christ and upon the earth. God gives him prophetic revelations through visions, dreams and visitations, which he shares in his books. God has given him an authority to speak prophetic words and wisdom into the areas of government, both physical and spiritual. It is so important for us to hear what God is saying to us about our current times and what’s to come. He’s preparing us, His Bride for our Call.
