“Defeating False Narratives with Truth” with Ricci Johnson-Wilson
Defeating False Narratives with Truth
“The Eagle, the Flag, and the Path to Freedom”
Vision given 9-21-2020 while interceding for the nation:
I saw an Eagle flying across the country. He had a flag clenched in his talons. He was strong and his flight was intense, but he was weighted down.
I saw a spirit of deception swirling visibly around the flag as it flew.
I looked past the flag and saw 5 weights attached on the end of flag, they were round and appeared to be cast iron. They were attached to the flag weighing it down, but they were also connected to one another.
The Five Weights:
- Media (news/social media/entertainment industry/music industry)
- Bloodletting (abortion/human trafficking/gang violence)
- Religion/spirit of compromise (Islamic infiltration and radicalism/this deeply impacts the Church)
- Communism (Tyranny/lawlessness)
As I prayed intensely in the Spirit, the weights began to fall off the flag one by one. The Eagle was jolted when the first one broke off, but he recovered quickly. The next weight quickly followed, and they all began to snap off like you’d expect something connected by bungee cords. (When the first one snapped off, it seemed to trigger the others.)
When the last weight fell, I heard a sonic boom and the eagle soared across the nation! One could easily see that rather than being fatigued or wearied by the weights, the Eagle had been strengthened by his efforts to fly under them. Yes, he was strong! Now that his flight was no longer strained, he flew with even greater determination and power.
The eagle’s goal was to break tyranny off the earth.
Many in America have forgotten, our flag represents a stand against tyranny. The American flag flew behind this eagle with vibrant color and strength, the Cross now shining through the red and white stripes.
I heard another sonic boom as the Eagle completed his flight across America and he continued his flight around the world. As he entered the border of a nation, another sonic boom was heard, and I witnessed the spirit of communism break off that nation. With each passage, he brought strength and freedom to the people of that nation.
Friends, this is our fight. Remember, Media is the first weight to fall. Tonight, I’m speaking on the Impact of Defeating False Narratives with Truth.
Last time I spoke on The Pursuit and Revelation of Truth. Everything, especially in this hour, must be encompassed in the pursuit of truth. The enemy roams to and fro searching for a man he can devour. (1 Peter 5:8) Our protection, our covering, is under the shadow of the Almighty where truth resides. (Psalm 91)
As I briefly touched on in my message America’s Red Sea Moment Approaches, the media is no longer the watchdog of the government as was the intent of our Founding Father’s when they included “Freedom of the Press” in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
Instead, they became the mouthpiece of communism. They pursue an agenda as designated by the communist party in massive disinformation campaigns. Whistleblowers from every major news company, Silicon Valley, and even social media “Influencers” have come forward to share their concern over meetings during which they or their organization were brought into by the Obama Administration, the State Department, and the Biden Administration to learn how and what to release to the public on key issues impacting our nation.
Elon Musk has been very open about this very thing, exposing emails hidden in the recesses of X—formerly “Twitter” regarding the 2020 Election and the censuring of Trump along with the truth about Covid and vaccines.
Issues such as:
- Benghazi (Obama and Clinton)
- Origins of ISIS (Obama)
- Russian Interference in the 2016 election (Clinton and Obama)
- The now infamous phone call with Ukraine
- Hunter Biden’s Laptop
- Biden’s dealings with Ukraine and China
- The 2020 Election
- January 6
- The War between Russia and Ukraine
- Biden’s dealings with “Hunter’s business”
- LGTB/Gender ideology
- And on and on
Had the Media been the watchdog of the government and rejected the narrative they were given, then instead, released the truth to the American people it would have changed the course of history.
Let that sink in for a moment… would your business still be open? Would our children be two years ahead instead of two years behind in school today? How many children would have avoided gender confusion and even surgery? Would we be navigating through new and upcoming businesses popping up along Mainstreet instead of the homeless camps and tent cities we see today? How many Russians and Ukrainians would still be alive?
The media is the mouthpiece of communism.
As a reminder, let’s look at the 45 Communist Goals from the Communist Manifesto:
- Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions, etc.
- Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.
The destabilization of our nation by the Communist Party involves strategically controlling both the social and corporate realms. They use the news media, print, Hollywood, social media platforms, and so on to push narratives that will change the face of our nation. NEO-Marxism is the vehicle used to bring Communism into our nation. Together, they are like a steam engine running at full speed tearing apart our country.
We must be the restrainer of that evil. (2 Thess 2:7)
How? How do we combat such a force? As I said last time, the Bible is indeed still very relevant. So, let’s go to the Word to read about a false narrative that kept a people divided, and see what happens when the Son of God brings truth!
John 4:3-42 (KJV)
“He (Jesus) left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. And He must needs go through Samaria. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
“There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
“And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
“In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
“And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. And many more believed because of his own word; And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.”
Tradition holds the name of the “Woman at the Well” as Photina.
Photina’s life had been one of pain, rejection, and likely more than one abandonment. She was searching for love in all the wrong places as evidenced by her 5 marriages and current infidelity.
Her idea of God, her understanding of worship, and even the coming of Messiah had been distorted through the generations of deception through the Samaritan narrative.
To Photina, the battle between the Jews and Samaritans was just another chink in the armor which we can clearly see her wearing in as John recounts her conversation with Jesus.
What was Photina’s narrative?
The Samaritans developed their own narrative of events and that was passed down through the generations.
According to the Samaritans:
- The division between Jews (southern Judah) and Samaritans had to do with a fight over the correct location of the Tabernacle holding the Ark of the Covenant. In Deuteronomy 12:5, God instructed Moses to establish a place of worship in a place that He “will choose.” (The Samaritans believe that the “choice” was always to be Mount Gerizim.)
- This is the same place Samaritans believe that Abraham almost sacrificed Isaac.
- And where Jacob had his vision of a ladder reaching up to the heavens.
(None of which is true, these events occur on Mount Moriah.)
Part of the narrative that kept them divided was reinforced by the suppression of truth. How?
The Samaritans believed that the first 5 books of the Bible were the only inspired works of God.
If they had the full history, the Old Covenant, reading through the history of Israel from 1 Kings 10-17, 2 Chronicles 10, along with the warnings from Isaiah and Hosea, would have debunked this account of when and why the true division of Israel occurred.
Alas, without these critical Historical and Prophetic Scrolls, the Samaritans were left with only the narrative of their ancestors.
Photina believed this as well, which is why she pursues the line of questioning we read in John 4.
What is the truth?
When the nation of Israel was split between the Northern Kingdom and the Southern Kingdom under Jeroboam, Shechem temporarily became its capital and later, Samaria became the official capital of the Northern Kingdom.
Jeroboam brought terrible idolatry into the nation which was carried down through the generations and, after decades of prophetic warnings to turn away from their sins, God’s hand of protection was lifted from the Northern Kingdom and in 722 B.C. Assyria conquered Israel and took most of its people into captivity. The invaders then brought in Gentile colonists “from Babylon, Cuthah, Ava, Hamath, and from Sepharvaim” (2 Kin. 17:24) mostly men, to resettle the land and they intermarried with Israelite women. The foreigners brought with them their pagan idols, which many of the remaining Israelites began to worship alongside the God of Israel (2 Kin. 17:29-41).
In this case, Samaria was filled with descendants of this event were considered Assyrian- Jews. Another source of contention.
Bitterness and hatred only increased between them from this point and the fight about the truth of God’s choice for His Temple ensued. In other words, which Mountain God chose, where Abraham laid Isaac on the altar, and where Jacob’s vision of the ladder truly occurred.
The lies propagated to further divide their nation were successful.
Christ came and brought them His plan, His purpose, His solution and He broke down the barriers with His love, His truth. Photina’s eyes were opened!
What impact did truth have on Photina?
According to history, she was so moved by her encounter with Christ, recognizing He was indeed the long-awaited Christ, her whole life became one of constant evangelism.
What we have here in the Gospel is the foundation for her life of Christian discipleship. When Photina returned to her community they listened to her. Her ministry was to all of the people there, both men and women heard her and were impacted by her testimony. She was bold and disruptive in her newfound freedom and her exuberance was contagious. She was a catalyst for Revival in Samaria as she spoke publicly to the people of her city, marking this the beginning of a new life for Photina and Samaria!
History records that Photina and her family were present when the Holy Spirit fell in Jerusalem on Pentecost. She was baptized in the Spirit, baptized by the Disciples, and this began her life as an evangelist. For 30 years she spread the Gospel of our Lord and Savior.
She is said to have traveled to Carthage, where she received a vision of Jesus calling her to Rome to confront the Emperor Nero, a persecutor of Christians. She went with family members alongside her. Nero tried to lure then with wealth and prestige, but they rejected his pointless attempts. Then, they faced gruesome torture one by one in front of Photina in an attempt to persuade her to deny Christ.
Finally, Nero ordered her torture to begin. Throughout, she sang praises to the King of kings refusing to deny Christ. Photina was eventually martyred by being thrown in a dry well. She herself already possessed the “living water” and again, she sang hymns until she perished. I always imagine this setting serving as more of an amphitheater to her worship of our Lord. What a precious testimony of the one who 30 years prior, had a divine appointment with Jesus to receive truth that would set her, her family and her people free.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He wants to open the eyes of those who’ve fallen into the deception the media continues to unleash over the Church and the citizens of our country. He wants to open the eyes of the church, our children, even corporate America. That is going to take continued prayer on our part.
Why? Because while we are divided and fighting amongst ourselves, they are implementing Marxist policies that will indeed oppress all citizens. We must stand against these false narratives, stand with all we have to break their hold on the minds of our young people, the church, and ultimately our Nation.
The awakening is here my friends, God is moving, and history teaches us that He partners with His people to accomplish His goals in the earth. Just look at Photina.
The Media unleashes deception, and it is the vehicle through which Neo-Marxist ideology is introduced and ultimately propagandized into a place of acceptance by the public. We can defeat this, the vision I shared at the beginning of this message shows that with faithful intercession, it can be done! We can pull the weight of Media down!
Let us partner with Him in Truth, just as His truth prompted the opening of Photina’s eyes, the truth through His people will break down the Neo-Marxist narratives so we can derail the train of Communism and pull that weight off the flag our Eagle is carrying!
Let us stand together and defeat the narratives of the enemy with the Truth!
What narratives must we overcome? To start with:
- That there is to be separation between Church and State – this was not the intention of our Founding Fathers. Their goal was for the State not to dictate religion and control the church. The Church is indeed supposed to influence the State.
- Education and God do not mix. This is another false narrative. In the earliest stages of our nation, children learned to read by reading the Family Bible. The recited prayers directly from the Psalms, and curriculum centered around our Creator. Harvard, Yale, Princeton, were set in place for higher learning and 70-80% of graduates with law degrees, also graduated with a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies. The descent of these higher learning institutions began when the Church stopped funding them.
- Life begins when the “fetus” can survive outside the womb—apart from the mother. We know that life begins at conception and destiny is established before conception. (Ps 139, Jer 1:5)
- There are more than two genders- yet the Bible tells us that in the beginning he made Man and Woman. Life and destiny end when this narrative is embraced.
- Trump – the 2020 Election, the current court cases, their efforts to keep him off the ballot. The Lord said The Hammer of Justice is falling, we need to keep praying into this until complete victory is won!
- Covid and all that that entails from where it came from to wealth transfer that occurred in the midst of it, to the stripping of our liberties both in the church and in the nation.
- Military Industrial Complex – The majority of America-funded conflicts between nations are proxy wars intended to destabilize that nation. Consider the push for the war between Russia and Ukraine.
- Truth is all relative. Nearly every social justice warrior on the planet lives by this code. Eph 4:21 tells us that truth is in Jesus. John 8:32 tells us we will know the truth, and the truth will set us free. The reality is, Jesus is the plumbline of truth, any attempt to deviate or formulate our own truth leads us on a path of deception.
I could go on and on, the reality is: as believers, as intercessors, we must stand on the Lord’s side and speak truth to the lies until God overturns the deception, and our nation is set free and can fulfill our destiny as a Father to the Nations!
We know the enemy will work to distract and divide, why? So, he can conquer us! We cannot allow this to occur, we must resist and continue to stand for truth! Truth is how we defeat false narratives. Truth is how we overcome the enemy! Truth is how we win in this war against Neo-Marxist ideology!
Stay the course my friends!
Blessings & love,
