BULLETIN: Rick Joyner on THE POPE'S PASSING, "One of the most remarkable leaders of our time . . . "

by Rick Joyner, Steve Shultz
Apr 6, 2005

April 6, 2005


From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Dear Elijah List Family,

One of the more discerning voices in the church today is Rick Joyner. Like Rick, none of us get it right all of the time. But let me state that Rick gets it right a LOT!

I've rarely seen such agreement as the agreement among all the streams, from Baptist to Pentecostal . . . that this last Pope was truly a godly man who led his flock to Jesus. No, we don't agree with every stand this Pope took, but we agree that God used him mightily.

We should all be praying for the next pope, not because we agree with every theological position of the Catholic Church, but because the Pope represents 1.1 billion Believers, most of who accept Jesus, plain and simple, for their salvation.

Please be in prayer for the selection of the next pope.

Blessings in Christ,

Steve Shultz



A True Saint

The passing of Pope John Paul II is a major event because we have all lost one of the most remarkable leaders of our time. I am not a papist and do not believe that any man on earth should be called "the head of the church," which is the rightful place of Christ alone. However, I do not doubt that John Paul II was a man of God that all Christians should be thankful for and should rightly mourn. It was not his title but his character that caused him to transcend the Roman Catholic Church and become a leader who blessed and advanced the whole church, and, indeed, the cause of Christianity itself. He was one of the greatest leaders of our time, and will be sorely missed.

I have said for years that John Paul II prophetically pulled the string that began the unraveling of Communism. He stood for freedom and human dignity with a resolve like few others. He also stood for life, without compromise, against the atrocity of abortion. Also, in one of his very last statements, he called on America to count as dear the life of Terri Schiavo.

Pope John Paul II Clung to the Cross

John Paul II also took the remarkable and unprecedented step of apologizing for the Catholic Church’s persecution of Protestants and Jews, as well as its historic role in oppressing other people groups. This was done with unquestioned sincerity, as it could have caused major political and legal problems for the church, but he did it because it was true and the right thing to do. Instead of opening the door to problems, this raised the world’s esteem for and trust in John Paul II, the Catholic Church, and, indeed, even Christianity itself.

Pope John Paul loved the Holy Spirit, and in an article which we printed in our Morning Star Journal, he encouraged all Catholics to seek the gifts of the Holy Spirit. It was during his tenure that more than 100 million Catholics became Charismatics and were born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit. Pope John Paul II clung to the cross and tried to pray without ceasing.

Reaching Across the Barriers

I have been accused of being a papist and of being anti-Catholic. I am neither. I have fundamental problems with some Catholic doctrines, which I see as being in clear and basic conflict with Scriptures, but this is because I am for my Catholic brothers and sisters, not against them. I have Catholic friends whose intimacy with Christ I envy. I do not hesitate to disagree with them on certain doctrines and practices, but I also love them dearly and have been richly blessed by their friendship and faith in the Lord. I loved and admired Pope John Paul II. He was one of the greatest men of God of our time.

If you feel the same way, consider honoring him by reaching across some barriers the way that he did. Send condolences to the Catholic Churches in your area for the loss of their shepherd, while expressing appreciation for all that he did for the whole church, and indeed the world.

"The Apostolic Ministry"
by Rick Joyner
$14.95 Book
The ministry of the apostle is the linchpin ministry of the church, and without it the church cannot become what it is called to be. While the world and much of the church has focused on scandals and problems in the church, that which is now being called "The New Apostolic Reformation" emerged and quickly became, not only the fastest growing part of the church, but the fastest growing religious movement of any kind on the earth. For this reason the subject addressed by this book is one of the most important for our times.

With its remarkable growth and impact, it is understandable that "apostolic movements" and claims of apostleship are also becoming some of the greatest controversies of our times. Though this book is not an attempt to answer all of the questions arising from this issue, it does address some of the most important ones, such as:

 -What is an apostle?
 -Are there apostles today?
 -What is their function?
 -What authority do they have?
 -How do we recognize false apostles?
 -What will the apostolic church look like?

Feel free to order online OR by phone (1-8.6.6-354-5245)

"The Torch and the Sword"
by Rick Joyner
$12.95 Book

The Torch and the Sword continues the message that began in The Final Quest and continued in The Call. It is a call to live the greatest adventure, for the most noble purpose. It is not for the faint of heart, but for those who desire to live as true knights of the cross, refusing to retreat before the great darkness of our times. It is for those who will stand with courage and resolution for truth, righteousness, and justice, as messengers of the age to come. These are the ones who Enoch prophesied would come with power in the last days, and who are now awakening to their destiny.
