Televangelist Rick Joyner appears on the brink of ruining Sunday football for all of us. Joyner said that the world needs prophets who will be able to predict the future, including sports scores. More importantly, Joyner revealed that he already has that ability and knew the actual score of the World series games before the games were actually played.
In the videotape below, the Joyner says
“We’re in desperate need of such prophets right now in the world,” Joyner 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.”
He then reveals that God shares sports scores with him in advance. He recounted how he and another prophet Bob Jones were given the World Series scores in advance: “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. 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.”
That must have required superhuman restraint since a few divinely ordained bets in Vegas would have made a fortune. What is curious however is why it is a relief that we will not have to watch the Super Bowl anymore but just hear the scores in advance from the prophets. At first I thought his suggestion of printing newspaper stories a week in advance was tongue in cheek. However, he then proceeds to detail how he was given the scores for the game with the Braves winning the World Series.
