Introducing The Underground

In partnership with Jim and Lori Bakker and Morningside Church, I am blessed to announce the launch of a new TV program The Underground with Joel Richardson. This is a weekly half-hour program that can be watched via live streaming or on-demand on the (just relaunched) Praise the Lord Television Network on Roku. If you are not familiar with Roku, its very affordable, easy to use, and super versatile. The first show is now airing and will continue all next week. Check back for updates.

    I’m guessing there is no way to see it on the Internet without Roku?

    Joel, I am praying for you and always that the Lord will expand your ministry. I will now ask the Lord to keep you humble. Truth will win out in the end. Joel… listen as I say this…I don’t mean any harm in anyway shape or form… please be careful. Many TV ministries seem so phony to me. They seem to sensationalize the death of Christ. You at this time will be a great counter balance to this flaw. Please continue to beat the drum.. just stay focused. Many of us believe you have a ministry that is rejected from within the church as much as from outside. We follow your insight with a weighted impact on our hearts. Please keep your heart humble, your ministry simple, your message on point. This is your gift.. this is your impact. Don’t change for the TV audience. I will pray for you more than ever.. I am re-reading Mid East beast today. I should be with my family.. and friends celebrating the 4th of July. I just can’t.. this message is impacting all that I say and do.. I just want to get it right. I write this as a brother.. that has seen many hearts go astray over the years.. and I am sure you also have seen this. Fortify your heart.. we will pray for this opportunity… to alert the church to the biggest issues… she is facing.. and is completely unaware.. for the most part. God bless you my dear brother.. you are an example and I know you give ALL credit to the Lord.. where it belongs. You hard work is paying off…it is incredible.. to me to see what truth with humility.. can do in and among a pack of lies.

    One of your gifts is you speak with “clarity” without a lot of filler.
    To be deep and yet clear is almost impossible to achieve in the flesh.

    And Jim Bakker said your book changed his life!! Wow!!

    Praise God, Joel! Actually, I have been praying for this to happen for years now. I always get so excited when I find a “new” youtube of you as a guest on someone else’s program. And, I have been storming the Gates of Heaven, asking the Lord why He doesn’t give you your OWN program to talk on? To tell the “flat-out” TRUTH on? So, Joel, this is an “answered” prayer.

    I’m gonna go thank my Lord right NOW! 🙂

    Looking forward to each and every show. Pay close attention to this Monday, July 13th, 2015, it is going to be blazing with news of the Iranian Arms Deal. An announcement is going to be made. Just in time for Jade Helm 15, huh? Anyway, this Arms Deal is prophetic as all get out. Stay on top of it for us, Joel. God gives you enormous amounts of insight to share with His sheep. We praise Him, and thank Him, and thank you, too, Joel.

    Blessings galore, and “break a leg!” 🙂 🙂

    Dear Joel,
    We thank God for His faithfulness to us in these days of deception.
    His truth prevails and we give Him praise.

    I loved the first program! I am inspired by your love for people, your humility and the way you honor other teachers in the body of Christ, even those with different opinions. Keep up the good work. Galatians 6:9

    Are women accepted as missionaries in the middle east? Are they permitted to take part in the harvesting? Are they allowed to preach/speak the gospel there? I know the culture in the middle east is different than here and mostly women are not permitted to even been seen uncovered. Please advise.

    Even here in the USA women are not permitted to speak/teach within some wings of the church.

    In Christ

    Thank you for a much needed message Joel. I keep your ministry in my prayers, what a wonderful opportunity this is! Shalom!

    Of course. Its more challenging for woman in the ME, because of frequently sexual harassment, but the fact of the matter is that far more of the missionaries in the ME are woman. But there are ample opportunities.

    LOL, I am older and quite ugly, so I think the sexual harassment would be a minimum concern. I am also married to a wonderful man, we would go everywhere together, no doubt.

    I have listened to Dalton Thomas’ “Antioch: God’s Strategy for the Advance of the Gospel,” and also “What Kind of Labors Will be Required for the Final Thrust of the Global Missions.”

    As you know, the Spirit gives each a gift for the edifying of the body, I am looking for an “Antioch” that is in need of and willing to accept me and my husband’s gift. I have offered it to Dalton, but haven’t heard back just yet. I have offered it to Jonathan Kahn, but was only able to speak with a secretary so far, I am also offering it to you Joel, because you are a teacher/preacher to them that are in darkness. My husband and I are neither (although I think all women by nature preach, lol) but we have dreams from God. And they speak about what time it is, and what is coming in the plan of God.

    Many wonder if we are the final generation, others have studied to the point they are sure it must be. These are well held opinions, and most speak as such saying “It’s my opinion….ect” But, Joel, this IS the final one. This IS the one that will see the false one and the Lords’ return. I have seen it and my husband has seen it.

    I saw the fake, I heard what the people were saying when he came, I saw the return of Christ and how it effected the fake, and the people. I need to find a teacher who can understand the dream/visions and will add it to their ministry for the edifying of the body, and especially for them that sit in GREAT DARKNESS.

    I saw a video where you were taking about a Woman who was in darkness and she had 10 children, each representing the generations her people have seen no light. Joel, my dream is about that darkness, and for the people who are in gross darkness.

    But as I said earlier, I am not a teacher/preacher, therefore I have no platform to relay these things. I wondered for years and prayed to God to know what the meanings were, and why I had them, and most importantly what to do with them. The message must get out, but all things in Gods timing. He has taught me patient, and with that came maturity and wisdom and most of all the importance of humility.

    Please let me know if we should speak further, in depth concerning these things.

    In Christ

    Hi Cathy,

    One organization that I would highly recommend you consider as a sending organization doing work in crisis zones in the Middle East is Crisis Response International. Sean Malone runs that.

    I look forward to your show every Monday! Keep up the great work. I’m very happy I discovered Roku! I plan to write a post on my own website about you. Is there anything you wouldn’t want me to use?

    Joel, I love the theme song you play in the background of the Underground program. Can you tell me the name of the song and the artist who recorded it. Also, I love your program and look forward to hearing it each week. I also, re-listen to past programs and take notes for study.

    It is just some song we got from a stock music site. Not sure what it’s called.

    I am so blessed to have found you. I was led to you by the Holy Spirit!!!!! I would love to ask you about two visions I had, one when I was a child around age 8 and the other in 2001 when I was 31. It has to do with the “symbols” and how you view it. Example: ‘a sample” of the age 8 vision I had a cloud hovering over my bed and I would tell everyone the cloud was raining, my mother was prevented from entering my room, I was told over the years God was sealing me to be used during the later day rain. The other vision proved VERY, VERY, VERY TRUE of my life 2001-present!!!! a lighthouse, I was stuck outside with massive waves climbing bolder rocks that surrounded it at night, a BIG STORM was coming.I knew I needed to go inside where it was glowing, warm, safe. Jesus became the lighthouse, his arms stretched open and one hand held a candle, the other an oil lamp. BOTH were light. I entered this lighthouse through a wooden door which was the bottom of Jesus’ white robe. This does NOT cover everything, nor the background stories but…………..
