Rick Joyner, who really does get more bizarre by the day, told his followers that during his 8-hour trip to heaven recently he discovered that there are Christians who have been given the power to destroy the Ebola virus and heal victims of it just by being in their presence.
During his recent visit, Joyner learned that there is no Ebola virus in Heaven and that Christians are capable of taking authority over the disease here on earth. In fact, there are certain people who are given “total authority over Ebola,” allowing them to cure people infected with the disease simply by being in their presence.
“Somebody with Ebola, they come into the room, the Ebola is gone,” Joyner said. “That person is healed. It cannot live, cannot exist in their presence.”
All Christians will one day have this same power, Joyner said, revealing that he even had a vision of children clearing entire regions of radiation simply through prayer.
So those Christians with that power are on their way to Western Africa to cure everyone who has been infected by the virus, right? Of course not, for the same reason that Benny Hinn doesn’t spend every day visiting hospitals with his vaunted ability to heal people: Because you can’t get paid that way. And one level down, because they don’t have that ability at all. It’s a con, a fraud, a grift, to relieve the credulous of their money.
