“Revolution in our Youth” Ricci Johnson-Wilson
“Revolution in our Youth”
The work we do as intercessors not only comforts the heart of God, but it brings healing to the brokenhearted and aids in restoring the nation so it might fulfill its God-given destiny.
So, what is America’s Destiny?
I’ll address two here in this brief letter:
First, America’s call is to be a father to the nations. It’s really a mantle that this nation wears. Some seasons we fulfill this call better than others and it’s often in conjunction with who’s in the Whitehouse at the time.
A father’s call, first and foremost, is to lead their children to the Lord, which leads me to the second part of our destiny; to take the Gospel to the nations of the earth. And, when revival falls in America, we have indeed been faithful to take the Gospel around the world!
When the Azusa Street Revival fell, within two years, it was in 60 nations. Quite a feat considering commercial, international air travel was still six decades away. Not, however, when you consider our destiny.
When the Brownsville Revival hit in the mid-nineties, people from nations around the world came to experience this monumental and life-changing move of God and take it back to their nations to ignite the fire of God in the people of their nation.
There’s been several in between those moves of God, but the reality is, our destiny is to further the Gospel.
How do I know this?
When Robert Hunt landed on the shores of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607 he planted an old rugged cross in the sand and entered this land into Covenant with God:
“We do hereby dedicate this Land, and ourselves, to reach the People within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to raise up Godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth. May this Covenant of Dedication remain to all generations, as long as this earth remains, and may this Land… be Evangelist to the World. May all who see this Cross, remember what we have done here, and may those who come here to inhabit join us in this Covenant and in this most noble work that the Holy Scriptures may be fulfilled.”
Robert Hunt passed away less than a year later having fulfilled his destiny to come here and dedicate this nation to the work of the Gospel.
America, while younger than most, was created to lead and guide established nations, as well as nations that would be discovered in the decades to follow, to the path of true freedom found only in God.
Why am I sharing this? Because most of us are deeply concerned about the generations after us. As citizens of this nation, the destiny Robert Hunt declared over this land is attributable to them as well, and our prayers should be to that end.
In July of 2022, the Lord said He was bringing forth His Kingdom and revealing the Mysteries therein. What are Mysteries? They are the unknown, but not unknowable revelations of the Kingdom of Heaven. Last week, the Lord gave me two incredible and extremely encouraging Mysteries that I want to share with you today!
These are revelations that I believe will encourage praying mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, and uncles! We all stand in the gap against the plans of the enemy for our youth, and the Lord is responding!
1/22/23 Dream – Your sons and daughters shall prophesy.
In the dream I entered two different types of physician offices. I checked in, passed through the nurse’s station, and then was escorted into the exam room. On the registration desk, the nurse’s station, even in the exam room were drawings of dreams and visions that children and young people were having about the glory of God.
I asked the doctor about them, and he said parents were frantic and rushing their children in because there seemed to be a sudden onset of these experiences and they were concerned. Once they entered the office and saw so many others, they realized other children and even young adults were having them, it brought them peace.
Friends, these drawings, which honestly, looked more like professional art were everywhere! They were each so detailed and magnificent in nature! The dreams and visions these children with no artistic skill were capturing on paper would astound scholars and art designers alike! The images were so detailed one would think a graphic designer developed them.
The children shared them at schools and among their friends and this became the focus of classroom time, astounding the teachers and administration alike. All the children wanted to do was speak of Heaven, the Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, what He really did for us, the life of Christ, heavenly things, the Mysteries of the Kingdom! The most remarkable thing was the fact that these Mysteries revealed to the children were breaking barriers between the generations, children were given prophetic revelations, and as they shared, adults were falling on their faces and weeping in joy and repentance.
These incredible experiences spread across so many children was causing revival to break out within entire school districts!
Some of these children were not in Christian homes, but God was miraculously revealing Himself to them through these dreams and visions. This was not limited to pre-adolescent children in fact, the high schools were ablaze with the fire of God! It seeped into the college-aged youth and prodigals were coming home because they had dreams that brought such healing to their hearts, they were able to forgive and return.
The Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven flowing through the youth were so profound, divorces were canceled, and couples were reuniting. Families were being restored, healed, and delivered.
The Lord showed me start to finish, the path some of these families and educators walked during this season. To witness the restoration of “family” from start to finish was remarkable to say the least. It reminded me of the Scripture:
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit.”
1/26/23 Vision The decline of a nation and the Divine intervention of God
Burdened for our youth, I was in heavy prayer for them.
I had a vision of an orphan spirit weighing heavily upon them. I could see the impact of this in their hearts, their minds, and the result of it in their lives. They felt abandoned, alone, even in a room full of people, they felt isolated, fearful, and full of anxiety.
In this vision, the Lord showed me the youth born in the 90s. This generation feels abandoned by God. The removal of God from our schools, the lack of prayer in the home, and deterioration of our morals, single parent households, and the unbelievable genocide brought about from abortion, impacted this generation conceived in the decade of the Justice Movement.
Consider some stats today:
- Marriage rates are at a 100 year low.
- Single parent households are at an all-time high
- Fatherlessness is the single greatest contributor to social degeneracy
- Children in single-parent homes are:
- 5X more likely to be poor and commit crimes
- 9X more likely to drop out of school
- 20X more likely to end up in jail
What I’ve learned is that the slow societal decline and deterioration of the family unit is not only provoked by the communist manifesto, but it’s the result of compromise. Compromise is more deadly than we realize. You cannot continue to embrace sin and expect the fabric of a society to remain unchanged. It took time for compromise to infiltrate every level of society until it penetrated even the most impenetrable region, the womb.
When our nation was in the process of becoming “A Nation” Pastors spent decades addressing any offense to the heart of God. Everything that began as compromise to the Word of God was addressed immediately! In fact, anything that would hinder the expansion of us living as “One Nation Under God” was hit with the truth found only in the Word of God.
Why? They came from nations that entered such compromise and understood the ramification of that compromise on the generations.
Fast forward to the generation the Lord spoke to me about: the 90s, the Decade His Justice. Yes, you heard (read) me right!
In a decade where Clinton had the greatest influence on the moral fabric of society, God was bringing forth His remedy to the decline – His vessels of justice. They were created and brought forth to be vessels of His Justice. They are passionate, compassionate, and have a deep sense of justice. Why? Because they were born to be vessels of His justice!
Unfortunately, with the disjointed and misdirection many received, we have either the aimless wanderers who have zero focus, or social justice warriors who believe they are on the right track fighting for mother earth, BLM, Woman’s rights, LGTBQ and so on.
This is the generation the Lord is after today…
I saw the Lord with a bow and arrow in His hands. He pulled back the bow and shot the arrow and it pierced right through the minds of our youth. With it came the antidote to the deception they are in today. This antidote spread through their minds and penetrated every part of their thoughts and emotions with the power of God. Clarity and understanding began to wash over them as the cleansing agent within this antidote flooded their bodies. Relief set in as their thoughts began to connect with what they know in their hearts to be true. The conflict, the rage, the frustration all dissipated as His Shalom and Truth began to wash over them. Anxiety melted away, fears, and insecurities lifted as they finally embraced their Heavenly Father as the One true God.
With the orphan spirit broken from our youth, these young adults were restored and became the vessels of His Justice they were created to be! The vision ended and I just wept before Him in gratitude for what He’s about to do for our children!
Friends, God is no where near done with our youth and as His intercessors, as those tasked with raising up a godly generation after us that they might inherit the Kingdom of Heaven! It is the destiny of this country to release the Gospel, it’s the destiny of our youth to carry that Gospel message forth. I believe the heart of the Lord today is to encourage us, the mothers and the fathers, the grandparents, the aunts, and uncles, to press in on behalf of our children with great fervency. The move of God that is coming in the days ahead will impact them more than any other group of people. After all, the promise of the Lord is that in the last days, He “will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” (Joel 2:28)
