Christian con man Rick Joyner loves to see prophecies come to life in sports, especially when it has nothing to do with sports. Now he claims that the recent 22-game winning streak by the Cleveland Indians is a fulfillment of prophecy.
Joyner tied the winning streak to the fact that his fellow modern-day prophet Lou Engle held a The Call prayer rally in Cleveland earlier this summer, which he linked to The Gulliver Prophecy, which predicts that astounding miracles and healings will begin in Ohio and lead to a revival that will sweep over America.
“Is this prophetic, what is going on in Cleveland?” Joyner asked. “There is really a tremendous rise going on. Does baseball reflect that? I believe there are signs.”
“I think there is something on this streak that is prophetic,” Joyner added. “Twenty-two is 11-11. Isaiah 11:11 talks about the Lord giving us another chance and I think He has and I think He is.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if he sits around with Jim Bakker, Pat Robertson and Benny Hinn and they just try to one-up one another on how batshit they can be without losing a single contributor.
