Oh how I want to walk in the heavenly realm and know what is going on like Rick Joyner did in his vision. This book is so good and helps me keep my eternal mindset. Nothing else matters but Jesus and seeing His kingdom come!

I have read this book at least 3 times and I feel like I've only begun. One of my best reads ever! It picks up from where 'The Final Quest' and 'The Call' left off by the same author. This book is not infallible (only the Bible is) but it is utterly Biblical. It is relevant for growth in intimacy with God, teaching, counseling in ministry, etc. The trilogy is to me, one of the most profound prophetic revelations received in our times.

Recommends it for: those interested in end times and the prophetic
An important spiritual battle between good and evil is under way. Rick Joyner makes the case that it is now time to choose which side we are really on. No more can we profess to be Christians and mingle with worldly thoughts, attitudes and people. Both young and old have a place in this battle. We see from this book that it is an exciting time to serve in the Lord’s army. With his mighty weapons, believers are victorious. It is a compelling story that keeps readers attention and draws them into ...more

This is the last book in The Final Quest series. It portrays the seriousness of the spiritual battle we are in. We are reminded of the importance of the torch and sword that the Lord has given us and to use them wisely.

This is the final book in the trilogy. It is quite different. The first two books were about a prophetic experience of maturing in Christ. This book is more of a vision of the future. The revelations are unexpected. Women play a huge role in the events of this book. It presents a complete paradigm shift from the way we view God's Kingdom. Challenging to read.

Potentially the most important book I've ever read. I'm going to have to read and re-read this book for years. Everything in this vision rings true with what I see God doing right now. This book should be required reading for every Christian leader.

There’s so much I got out of this tiny book and I’ve been so blessed by it but these are my takeaways:
1. I am in a battle and I need to train and fight in accordance with the direction of my King;
2. I must prepare and train my children for the battle – this is absolutely vital and is my role as a parent;
3. The Presence is vital and so is obedience;
4. I must use my authority but carefully and under obedience.

Equip for the last battle

This book outline the spiritual battle we are currently in, the weapons, strategy and future for those that are willing to humbly self, walk in love, courage and unity. Working in concert with the rest of Christ body as one.

There were some nuggets in here that were really good, but it wasn't quite as amazing as the first on in the series.

El mundo de los sueños es considerado por muchos como el hogar de la fantasìa, el misterio, y a veces, el sitio de nuestra mente en donde la verdad parece estar prisionera.

Ademàs, no son pocas las veces que muchas personas buscan en ellos respuestas importantes, asì como tambièn, la revelaciòn del futuro, el cual, por cierto, puede ser halagador..... o terrible.

Justamente es eso lo que Rick Joyner nos describe en su obra "La antorcha y la espada". Cargada de elementos de la Nueva Era, esotèricos

I love this book because I seek out men and women of God who operate with the gift of prophesy and seeing into the spirit realm. Rick Joyner is the real deal on both counts! This book is one of my all-time favorites along with the other books of his in this series. I love these books because of the visions and experiences he records. These stories give all of God’s people access into many important truths concerning the Kingdom of God. The points I most love about this book are:

1. There is a Riv

Shelves: christian
it's hard to review this book. I really enjoyed it and read through it very quickly (probably helped that it's such a short read too), yet at the same time, I'd only read a chapter or so at a time and need to stop and digest what I'd read. there's a lot of food for thought in it. it's always interesting to read someone else's visions; I spent a lot of time comparing what Joyner wrote to what is in Scripture. I didn't find anything that was problematic for me. in fact, some of what he wrote, abou ...more

This book is a call to action!
This book is to be lived out not just read!
This book is fast forward in seeking God's heart having eyes to see and ears to hear as Holy Ghost leads.

Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Love those who hurt you, give Living Water to your enemies and watch the ravenous wolves drink deep of this Living Water. I drink deep of this Living Water, I bow before my King Jesus letting His love His Blood wash over me. I once was lost but now I

This is the third book in a series of prophetic revelations. A real easy read and very insightful. I highly recommend all the books in this series. It puts a lot of things in perspective and stirs a hunger for Jesus.

This series of books is life changing - The Final Quest, The Call, and The Torch and the Sword. They show where the Church is now and what needs to change. I've read all of them several years ago, but felt led to reread them now - they are amazingly accurate to where the church is today.

All Rick's books are must reads. Insight into the coming war of the worlds.great book.

I really feel this book is lesser known only because The Final Quest was so powerful. This was an excellent book, with many deep truths that have impacted me.

I try to get a wide variety of perspectives, and Rick Joyner offers me the prophetic and allegorical side. I have read many Rick Joyner books. Not disappointed to have read another one.

one summer I read all three books back-to-back-to-back.
the whole series will mess with your theology if you happen to be coming from a Traditional Church background.

This is the other book in the series by Rick Joyner that I read. It's about a dream that he had from the Lord. It's intense, but well worth reading.
