Order of the Knights of Malta was the second most prominent order of
Catholic Knights to fight in the crusades, in the Middle East, a thousand
years ago. By joining this organisation Joyner has submitted to the
spiritual authority of the Grand Master of this order who has a rank
equivalent to a Bishop within the Catholic denomination and who reports
directly to the Pope. As a member Joyner has also pledged an oath of
allegiance to the Pope and promised to promote the cause of the Catholic
Church. Joyner is now head of this order for all of North America. This
is a very powerful position to hold within the Catholic Church, it also
gives him an enormous amount of influence within secular politics. He
now has authority from the Pope to induct anyone who he sees fit into
this order himself. This place’s Joyner at the centre of the Catholic
Churches “New Evangelism” campaign, the aim of which is
to bring as many protestant’s under the authority of the Pope
as possible. Surprisingly little interest or concern about this has
been shown by most of the Christians who follow Joyner’s ministry.
Perhaps this is because Joyner has down played his membership of this
Catholic Order? However, surely no charismatic leader would take on
such responsibility and submit the Pope without first giving this serious
consideration? There are also indications from Joyner’s visions
that he is willing to engage in some form of persecution of Christians
himself, those who will not accept his side’s leadership. We know
that the Catholic Church has exhibited the same tendency historically.
If the hierarchy of the Catholic Church were to become completely apostate
in the future, they may well endorse the antichrist and even lead a
persecution of all genuine believers in the end times, (Rev 13: 7, 16).
Unless Joyner turns away from his present path he could therefore find
himself at the very heart of the antichrists power base and his false
One World Religion in the end times. The following article, “The
Coming One World Religion,” reflects what I believe the Lord has
shown me concerning these things.
