If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith.

Ms. Nero’s Article Continues My Response

Here Is What They Are Saying

In July 1999, the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America, Young Messianic Jewish Alliance, International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues assembled with about 2,000 people for their “Messiah ‘99” conference in Grantham, Pennsylvania. One of the guess [sic.] speakers was Rick Joyner of Morning Star Ministry. Follows [sic] are excerpts from Rabbi Robert Cohen’s speech before introducing Rick Joyner, and then excerpts from Rick Joyner’s speech. Rick Joyner is the ever popular false prophet whose dreams, visions, and prophesies sees [sic] “Wisdom” in the masculine rather than the feminine as The Bible refers to her. The first eight quotes came from the transcription of the recorded conference at Watch Unto Prayer website ( pray.html), and the rest from other sources.

1. “But in the last five years God has begun to do something. He’s raising up a prophetic righteous remnant, that are calling the Church back to their Jewish roots, back to become a prophetic call to the nation of Israel…to provoke the Jewish people to jealousy. And to say to the Church you have Messianic Jewish brethren we need to connect with.” (Rabbi Robert Cohen)

(1) All The Church needs to know is that Jesus was born a Jew and what He did on Calvary redeemed us from the curse of the law and reconciled us to Father God.[81c]

(2) If The Church will clean up her apostate act and get back to righteousness and holiness, they will provoke the Jews and others to jealousy whereby they will want to know Jesus.

2. “…they told me backstage. You know, you’re the first Gentile we’ve let into this pulpit.” (Rick Joyner). Oh, my, what an honor!

3. “I’m just sharing some of the things I believe I’ve seen spiritually, especially about this movement. You’re coming of age now. There’s a certain graduation, a certain maturity…compared to other movements it may not be very large. I think that you’re exceptionally large, when you think of what you’ve had to endure to get to this stage…it’s quality that is the point, it’s the anointing that really matters…a people almost without a country…being rejected by…your own relatives to be a part of the Messianic and then the Church doesn’t know what to do with you either…I can’t personally comprehend how difficult it has been for you to get where you have got and I’ve watched for a long time….” (Rich Joyner)

(1) The Church doesn’t know what to do with them because she is out in left field in an apostate condition.

(2) To help Mr. Joyner comprehend why the MJM has had a difficult struggle in getting to where they are, well, it’s because God has been hindering them so that they would not make the mistakes they’ve been making.

4. “I believe there’s some real clarity coming, a specific purpose, a nature. Not just through me. I believe it’s coming and I don’t know how it’s going to come but I know here it’s just going to begin to come…You needed to go through the independent stage. I personally prayed for many years that you would not be corrupted by too many relationships with the Church…I believe your ultimate purpose, I believe it fits together…the way I become one with my wife is not making her into a man. You’re not supposed to be like the Church in many ways. The Church is not supposed to be like you. That would mess everything up. (Rick Joyner)

(1) False Prophet Joyner’s prayers evidently were not heard because MJM is corrupted because their ultimate purpose is not of God.

(2) Nope, The Church is not supposed to be like them – steeped in Judaism and neither are they supposed to be like that. They, however, together with The Church, are to be like Jesus, like Mark 16:16-18 Believers, excluding rituals, traditions, worldliness and the the rest of the trash.

(3) The only thing the MJM does that The Church MUST do is cut loose Christmas, Easter, and Sunday Sabbath. Oh, and they must cease lending an ear to false prophets like Rick Joyner.

5. “…I believe if you become like the Church something is lost. Listen, there’s a whole lot that the Church, believe me, I really believe there must be a revolution. I don’t believe the Church is anything close to what we’re called to be either. I’m speaking as a member of the Church. I believe I have the right to say that.” (Rick Joyner)

No, Mr. Joyner. Right now, they both are lost.

6. “Where does this pressure to conform come from? Religion. And I believe it is something we must get free of….We don’t have to conform to each other’s image. We don’t have to conform to anybody else’s image…You don’t have to conform. Don’t conform. Believe me. You don’t want to. You don’t want to.” (Rick Joyner)

You almost had me fooled, Mr. Joyner. They don’t have to conform to each other’s image, but they, The Church and the MJM, must conform to the image of Jesus Christ and carry out His mandate (excluding Judaism).

7. “I don’t believe any people have been more mistreated, more wrongly treated than the Jewish people, in history, okay. By Christians, mostly…You’re called to help heal the Church. Not just the Church. But you’re called to bring healing and the gift of healing to the world.

My, My, he really put his foot in his mouth that time. If the blind leads the blind and they both fall in the ditch, how on God’s green earth can the Messianic Jewish Movement help heal The Church. They are both hurting and in immediate need of the real Jesus.

8. “…I’ve been trying to help people to understand, you know there must be a messianic movement that does not just get absorbed into the Church and lose it’s identity. And I’ve been saying for years that they’re going to help us restore our foundations where they belong. We’re not going to get there without them. (Rick Joyner)

Rick Joyner really should have shut up before making that statement. But, when religious demons are running your show, you don’t know when to shut up. The only identify any of us are supposed to have is in Christ Jesus, alone. Mr. Joyner, “True Born Again Spirit-filled Uncompromising Christians” have their foundation in God and His Word – not the rituals and traditions of Judaism.

9. “And you know I believe one of your ultimate callings, I personally believe and I may be saying this jealously, your ultimate calling is to the Church. To help us. To help us. We’re not going to get there without what you’ve got. And to be honest with you, I don’t think you really know what you’ve got yet. I really don’t. I don’t think it’s clear to you yet. I believe it’s getting clear. But we’re not going to get where we’re supposed to be without you. You’re not going to get where you’re supposed to be, without us. (Rick Joyner)

False word coming from the False Prophet.

10. Musician Paul Wilbur said, “He seeks to show his audience that their faith is connected to a Jewish God, who has an everlasting love for His Jewish people.” (The Messianic Times, “Church Embraces Messianic Jewish Music, Movement.” Summer 2000.)

Well, The Church’s faith is in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who is the God of all who come to love and serve Him. He is not a God exclusively for the Jews, and He loves all of His people with an everlasting love. That kind of talk comes from insecure jealous people who are seeking recognition. That’s what the MJM is all about.

11. “The Messianic vision is the redemption of the Jewish people, not the amelioration of the Gentiles.” (Return Of The Remnant by Michael Schiffman. Lederer Messianic Publishers, Baltimore, MD p. 114, 1996).

As you can see, the MJM is still stuck on “to the Jew first” which was for Jesus’ time since the Jews were the ones God gave His Law to the first time. After Jesus, it’s the Great Commission – to all throughout the earth, but they are saying they are not bound to The Great Commission when they don’t want to minister to non-Jew on how to improve their walk with The Lord. It’s the Jew only for them. What a pity!

There you have it. You have seen for yourselves how the Messianic Jewish Movement breaks God’s heart with their version of what Jesus left for them to do in this way of life called Christianity. It is indeed tragic. It’s apostasy in its purest form. (Jesus is the “one heart” that beats for the whole Body of Christ, but one would never know that when looking at the divisions in Christianity.)


Biting sarcasm, ridicule, lunatic ravings, and venomous name-calling is so very impressive when one has nothing intelligent to say. This section is not even worth wasting my time to comment beyond saying that it once again demonstrates either the ravings of an anti-Semitic demoniac, or someone who is otherwise totally out of control from hatred! Adolf Hitler and the Imperial Wizard would both be so proud!















[81c] While reviewing this page during a reformatting project 8 years after it was originally posted, I decided that I will make one comment on her comments on this page. Here she says “all the Church needs to know is …” Apparently that is all Ms. Nero knows and she wishes for the entire Church to be as abysmally ignorant as she is!
