“The Rebirth of a Nation” with Ricci Johnson-Wilson
“The Rebirth of a Nation”
6-12-2023 (from our 6-8-2023 teaching)
Dear Friends and Intercessors,
Thursday, June 8, 2023, I shared a vision (Dry bones and the Rebirth of a Nation) and an accompanying word from the Lord. That is typed up below.
First, however, I feel the need to share what occurred on our prayer call Friday, June 9, 2023. Just as I was about to greet everyone and begin our prayer call, the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord came over me as the Lord suddenly, on the spot, brought His revelation to a dream I had in our May, Gathering of the Eagles. I feel it’s important to share this dream and the revelation first, because the Lord is speaking to us regarding our need to prepare for the days ahead.
The dream and the revelation: During the Seattle Gathering of the Eagles, I had a dream that Darrell (he is facilitating our Corporate Calls now) and I were in front of a computer monitor. On the screen was a map of the United States with 5 cities highlighted: DC, New York, Denver, Houston, and Los Angeles. There were controls to increase or decrease the cloud cover. The Lord was clear: “decrease cloud coverage, exposure is coming!”
As I shared, just as our prayer call began, the fear of God fell upon me, I could barely stand in His presence. I encourage you to listen to the audio as a strong warning was given by the Lord to avoid distractions and stay the course over the next few months because we are going to great exposure regarding DC, New York, Denver, Houston, and Los Angeles. DC is the Government, New York is the financial end, Los Angeles is media and entertainment, Denver is religious/cultic, and Houston is likely human trafficking.
I sensed the enemy will try to bring about alternative chaos, perhaps riots, economic crisis, wars and rumors of wars, and so on, to keep our hearts and minds off the deeply rooted corruption that God is exposing. This is the hour to remain diligent in our intercession and stay before the throne as His Justice is about to fall upon the land.
Friends, let us be mindful to stay the course and remain prayerful in this season.
God is going to expose corruption and bring about His justice!
That said, I want to share in print, the vision I had May 23rd as well as the accompanying message I gave Thursday, June 8, 2023.
In Seattle GOE I had a vision of the nation. It was dry and barren. Hidden beneath the mountain of debris, I could see the skeletal system of the nation.
Within the chest of the skeletal system, at its core, was the heart.
Suddenly, the skeletal system began to shake violently, the debris began to fall off the land and into the sea. The bones shook so violently, I felt certain they would shatter. Then, the heart began to beat, and that skeletal system came to life. Muscle, tendons, sinew, tissue… all formed around the bones until it was a living, breathing nation once again.
The nation was reborn, it arose and went forth, restoring other nations as it had been restored. Awakening nations, as it had been awakened!
We often think of Ezekiel 37 when the dry bones came to life. However, the Lord directed me to 2 Kings 13:20-21: And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year. And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulcher of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.”
Our nation bounced back like the man thrown on the bones of Elisha!
This miracle of Elisha’s after his death is more surprising than any of those he performed during his lifetime. The Jews regarded this miracle as his highest glory. It may be said to belong to a class of Scriptural miracles, cases, i. e. where the miracle was not performed through the agency of a living miracle-worker, but by a material object in which, by God’s will—virtue—for the time resided. (We see this same type of miracle in Acts 19:12 when handkerchiefs were prayed over and sent by Paul to the sick and people were healed).
If we look back at this season of Israel’s history, the nation was headed into very dark days. However, this miracle served to add weight to Elisha’s unfulfilled prophecies, especially to those concerning the coming triumphs of Israel over Syria. In the extreme state of depression to which the Israelites were now reduced, this miracle may just have been the thing necessary to encourage and reassure them to press in and press on!
Now, considering where America is today, living in a state of oppression and state capture, I firmly believe the Lord was showing me how, under the watchful guidance of the prophetic, the Lord will use the intercessors to bring this nation back to life!
His virtue still remains, and it will once again be seen in the earth.
What is the heart? The Heart of the nation is the church and the Biblical foundations the nation was founded upon were born out of the Church. The Church must be revived to their First Love, come out of the world and up to God where we can hear His will and His purposes, then pray and act accordingly.
In 1607, Robert Hunt made a Covenant with the Lord as he dedicated our nation to the work of the Gospel. (April 26, 2023, it was rededicated, and the Covenant reiterated)
“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.”
We revisit this Covenant to stir our hearts to our purpose as a nation. However, it is vital that we remember for a Covenant to be fulfilled, the people of God must also fulfill our portion. We must engage with the will of God for this nation. We cannot simply rest on the knowledge of the Covenant between Robert Hunt and our Lord. Instead, we must recognize that there was a legal authority and precedent set on that day that this nation would be a nation from which the Gospel would go forth unto all the nations, and just as Moses reminded God of the Covenant He made with Abram 400 years earlier as he led the people out of Egypt and headed toward the Promise land, we too can petition the Lord for His mercy and protection for our Nation based on the Covenant that we will stand and be a nation from which the Gospel would pour out unto all the earth! Before anyone settled here, our nation was dedicated to God and the spread of the Gospel for the generations both here and abroad. The dedication of our nation was for the fulfilment of the Great Commission in Matt 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
How do we align ourselves with God in bringing about His Plans and Purposes for our Nation?
#1. The Church needs to return to its First Love.
One of the goals of the Communist Manifesto from the “Naked Communist” is to infiltrate and weaken the Church. Why? Because they knew as long as the Church remained steadfast, they could never capture the nation. They’ve been very successful in their effort, but I see a new breed of believers rising, and they are ready to shake the shackles off and reverse course on behalf of the Church! The heart of the nation, the church, needs to be awakened so we can occupy! (Luke 19:13)
#2 We need to protect and prioritize God’s plans over our own.
It is important to remain active in the battle. We are at war for the soul of this nation… we need to view this season as we would wartime. Set aside distractions, our programs, our own agendas, and focus on the battle that we are in.
Remember, this is war so it’s important that we work, and we war against the enemy not one another.
#3 We need to see events through the lens of the Lord.
When the enemy is as bold as he is today, using sports, retail, church, media, and education to target our children, especially in this past couple of weeks, we know we are on the brink of something. What that “something” is really has been stirred up by the Lord and prayed to the surface by the intercessors—those who stand in the gap for the nations. We must dig our heels in and fight for the soul of this nation like never before.
#4 Pray for and pursue the Awakening.
We know that there must be one last awakening before the Lord’s return. The enemy knows this as well which is why he is trying to take our children and thwart God’s plan for them through this very sick and corrupt agenda.
I know God allowed this season to compel men to stand for righteousness – the sickness of the world, the left, it is pouring out into the four corners of the land so men might become sickened by the gross debauchery, unrighteous legislation, and ultimately, work to thrust it from our land.
His Rods of Righteousness are rising!
In the coming days – we will see 5 things we need to prepare for:
#1 The Church is going to come under persecution.
Through this season of persecution, will see greater purification of the Church. Those standing on the Word and pursing God, will be strengthened in this season. We, as intercessors, need to pray for the Church to be strengthened, for their heart to return to their First Love, and be ignited by the Spirit of the Lord for the work that lies ahead.
#2 There will be wars and rumors of wars.
We will see an escalation with Ukraine, but it’s for greater exposure than we ever thought possible. We need to pray for our nation, the pain of this exposure will be close to unbearable. Part of this agenda is to push for war, but God will use it to expose the corruption. (I shared a few weeks ago, they will push for war between China and Taiwan as well.)
#3 There will be exposure of human trafficking like never before.
In our Pentecost GOE, I was praying over human trafficking, and I saw the Lord raging through pathways like a father searching for his son in the debris of a collapsed house. He was ripping up walls, throwing furniture, boxes, etc, searching for the children. Last night, I learned that Operation Underground Railroad and Mel Gibson partnering to release a four-part series that will expose the depth of Human Trafficking in Ukraine and in Hollywood.
God has a plan for the youth, aligning with His plan, standing in the gap for the children as He directs, will set the captives free.
#4 The Media will get out of control.
In their effort to control the masses and fulfill secret obligations, we will see these talking heads become more excessive, aggressive, and even lose control on live TV. They will suppress the truth and expand their distraction techniques to prevent WE THE PEOPLE from seeing the truth. (Remember, they are driven by unholy covenants they’ve made, let’s pray that God will make a way of escape for them.)
It’s important that during this chaos, this exposure, God is setting the captives free. The enemy will bring distractions, he’ll use the media, to really push this effort. We really need to pray for discernment in this hour.
#5 The enemy will increase in his efforts to sever the heart (the Church) from the Nation.
God says the heart of this Nation is the Church (the true Church, those called out of the world and up to God) Our mission is to pray for the Church to reengage with the purpose of this nation’s founding.
Why? This nation, having been dedicated to the spread of the Gospel, received decades of training in the Word of God by the Black Robe Regiment even before the Revolutionary War. Our Founding Fathers pulled from those messages as they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. When they developed our government, they pulled from those messages and poured over the Scriptures to develop a government based on Biblical principles.
George Washington quoted Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” and because of this truth, they needed to establish checks and balances in this new government to protect “We the People” from an oppressive government.
As such, Isaiah 33:22 was used as the foundation and example of the three branches of our government. “For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king” Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches.
Exodus 18 was used as the guideline to breakdown government from the Federal, to the State, and ultimately the Local levels.
So, when the Left, Academia, the Media, and so on, try to destroy this nation, its founding, and its history, they are not only trying to uproot the Biblical principles established to protect us from THEM, but they are also attempting to thwart what God is trying to accomplish in the days ahead, and that is not something we as intercessors can tolerate.
We must adhere to and remain focused on God’s plans and purposes for this nation and:
Luke 19:13 “Occupy till He comes!”
I want to encourage you to stay the course, good v evil is in the most epic fight for the nations of the earth, and they know the United States must fall if evil is to succeed.
Finally, I implore you…pray for the Lord of the Harvest to send forth the laborers (Matthew 9:36-38) The awakening is upon us, and it is going to be seen in many arenas. The Church, the government, academia, everything will be impacted by what God is doing. Pray, pray for the Lord of the Harvest to send forth the Laborers.
Blessings & love,
