The Weights our Nation Bears and the New Breed of Warriors Coming Forth!


Ricci Johnson-Wilson



The following is from “The Eagle, the Flag, and the Path to Freedom.” This vision was given to me by the Lord on 9-21-2020.


As I was praying for the nation, the Lord showed me the following:


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)
  • Academia
  • Bloodletting (abortion/human trafficking/gang violence)
  • Religion/spirit of compromise (CC, Islamic infiltration and radicalism/this deeply impacts the Church)
  • Communism (Tyranny/lawlessness/Cultural Marxism/Social Justice Warrior)


As I prayed intensely 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, the eagle soared across the nation. I heard a sonic boom! 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 great determination and power.

The eagle’s goal was to break tyranny off the earth. Many in America have forgotten what our flag represents. It is a stand against tyranny. The American flag flew behind this eagle with vibrant color and strength, the Cross now shining through its red & white colors.


I heard a sonic boom as the Eagle completed his flight across America and continued his flight around the world. As he entered the border of a nation, another sonic boom could be 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.


I’d like to address these weights and the progress made because of your obedience to the call of intercession. Second, address some things we should be looking for in the days ahead. Finally, bring it all together with a lesson from Paul’s life.


The Lord told me three weeks after the vision above, “the Media-is the First Ball to Fall” and we are seeing that occur today.

I’m going to touch on just a few headlines:

  1. January 20, 2023 Business insider reported: that “Google is laying off 12,000 employees, or around 6.4% of its global workforce, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of parent company Alphabet, told staff in a memo on Friday.
  2. June 13, 2023 Axios reported: The media industryhas announced at least 17,436 job cuts so far this year, marking the highest year-to-date level of cuts on record
  3. Axios January 26, 2024: Nearly a dozen mainstream media companiesare gutting staff and scrambling to rescue their struggling businesses.

Why it matters: The media business is shrinking at the national, state and local levels — a scary, stark new reality for thousands of journalists.

Media cuts were so severe last year that most industry observers weren’t expecting such intense cutbacks in 2024. But an ongoing “bloodbath is decimating news outlets nationwide.”

It’s also fueling a new round of conflict between unions and management as tensions run high. (Note: unions are often used to push communist agendas. Those at the top are activists, often referred to as “union mafia bosses”)

  • Sports Illustrated newsroom was guttedby sweeping layoffs after its parent company, (NOTE: if you remember, sports illustrated jumped onto the Cultural Marxist/Social Justice Warrior Train in 2021 and then again in 2023 by including transgendered-men  on the cover of their women’s swimsuit issue.)
  • Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, said in November that it was laying off more than 11,000 employees, or 13% of its workforce
  • In the first month of 2024, based on the dates when the EDD posted the WARN notices, tech companies have revealed plans to slash 3,540 jobs in the Bay Area, according to this news organization’s compilation of the WARN notices posted by the EDD.
  • And just looking at tech jobs alone, counted 28,970 jobs gone during the first 31 days of 2024.

We know and understand that the reason for these drastic layoffs is two-fold. The economy is one. But in reality, God is bringing judgment to the media and tech industry. Remember, in June 2023, the Lord clearly told me the “Hammer of Justice was about to fall.”

His justice is here.

As I mentioned, in 2020, the Lord was clear, “the Media is the First Ball to Fall” and through our consistent intercession regarding the corruption in media, we are bringing these Cultural Marxist infused, social justice warrior, liberal leftist platforms down!

While our hearts go out to those impacted by these layoffs, the truth is, they are in an industry that’s under the judgment of God. He is dealing with them now, so He can bring forth a new breed of journalists who will reject cultural Marxism and stand for absolute truth!


Bloodletting – Abortion and Human Trafficking


We are living in a time where the topic of abortion is in the news on a daily basis. Mostly by extremists claiming that a woman’s right to choose is of the upmost importance and anyone who disagrees with this is an alt-right Christian nationalist who could care less about what a woman or “birthing person” is going through by being forced to carry a child they don’t want full term. These commentators have been so bold as to refer to that precious life within the womb as a parasite sucking the life out of a woman.  In fact, this is what Hillary Clinton referred to pre-born children as during the COP27 meeting, adding their negative impact on the climate crisis.


Human trafficking, as I mentioned two weeks ago, is going to be dealt with by the Lord. He warned us that—under the Biden presidency—not only would this increase (which we see occurring at an historical high at the southern border) but they would strive to normalize and legalize minor attracted persons or MAPS under his presidency. Before this can be fully dealt with, it must be exposed. As difficult as this season is, intercession is necessary to maintain the exposure level and ultimately, bring this system down.


I would advocate that the gender identity crisis we are witnessing with social justice warriors crying out for proper “gender affirming” care previously diagnosed as recent as 2010 as “gender dysphoria” which has the potential to sterilize young children is indeed part of the abortion and human trafficking issue. How? An abortion not only ends the life of that child, but abortion also ends the life of the generations that would otherwise come through that individual. When puberty blockers and gender reassignment drugs are pushed on children as young as seven, they are effectively destroying the generations that would come through them. It’s trafficking their minds through brainwashing while aborting their lineage through sterilization. God is dealing with it, and today, we are witnessing state legislatures standing up to protect children from this insanity.



We’ve seen the firestorm taking place with IVY League Colleges and universities across the nation. Why? Because they are filled with Cultural Marxist educators brainwashing impressionable minds with deceptive ideology intent on extracting any trace of God, conservative values and patriotism from their hearts and minds.


While God is exposing and dealing with these universities and their enrollment is down nearly 10% since 2021, Christians are taking this opportunity to raise up a standard in the industry and take back our universities for Christ! Corey Miller President and CEO of Ratio Christi is planting university clubs nationwide and around the world to help students who are questioning their purpose, faith, and identities, find their answers in Jesus! They are currently in over 100 universities across the nation with access to their clubs made available for high school age children as well. Corey firmly believes that Christian’s have a responsibility to take back our nation by entering and influencing every aspect of society with a Christ-centered life. He sees universities crumbling under Cultural Marxist ideology and believes that now is the time for Christians to get involved and turn things around beginning with universities.


Another program mentioned last night by Darrell in our good news report: “LifeWise Academy.” This is a Christian ministry operating in the public arena, which offers Bible classes in 300 public schools, within 12 states across the nation! This is God, infiltrating and bringing His Word back to our youth!




God is dealing with religion. Throughout Covid we saw who would stand for righteousness and who would crumble under the weight of government. Today, those who stood against church closures, are now speaking out against abortion, human trafficking, corruption in academia, the lgtbq/gender identity crisis, and so on. They are pursuers and purveyors of truth!


On the other side of this we see various deceptions exposed for what they really are. Recently, the Pope, in addition to the prayer to God on behalf of Mother Earth, “our sister” where he repents and calls upon others to follow suit in the fight for climate change, announced that the Catholic Church can bless same sex unions. Then, January 26, 2024, he further defended his decision to allow blessings for same-sex couples on Friday with a clarification that “same-sex relationships are still considered irregular and potentially sinful by the Church.”


This is my question to the Pope… if this is considered irregular and potentially sinful, why are you allowing these relationships to be blessed by the church?


Many years ago, I saw a mass exodus from the Catholic Church, and atrocities such as these will certainly bring this about.


Friends, God is exposing the core of compromise. In fact, the spirit behind the Catholic Church is rooted in compromise.


So, why are we seeing these things surface now? The answer is two-fold:


  1. The Weights are falling! God is faithful to His promises! He said exposure would occur and He is demonstrating what He will do when His intercessors answer the call to prayer. Through the obedience of the intercessors, the Lord is exposing the corruption in media, academia, the horrors of bloodletting, and even the corruption in the church to separate and refine.


  1. The New Breed of Believers or “Warriors” are about to come forth!


In 2018, the Lord told me we were in a season of refining that would bring about a “New Breed of Believers.” I believe we will see them come out of these industries mentioned above and become warriors for righteousness. A New Breed of Warriors!


 Five areas to look out for:


  1. We will see a New Breed of Journalists who will be beacons of truth and honor the Constitutional right they’ve been granted by our Founding Fathers.


  1. We will see a New Breed of Educators come forth who will reject Cultural Marxist Ideology and commit to the 1776 Curriculum. They will reject communism, socialism, and raise a standard of righteousness in academia.


  1. We will see a New Breed of Advocates for Life come forth who reject and expose the pro-abortion agenda for the multi-billion-dollar bloodletting industry that it really is.


  1. We will see a new Breed of Victors come out from the shadows of victimhood to human trafficking, who will become advocates and teach and train others to move from victim to man to victor in Christ!


  1. We will see a new Breed of Biblical Justice Warriors coming forth! A mass exodus from the Cultural Marxist, Social Justice Warriors is coming! They are going to break free and bring forth a Biblical Justice as they stand for truth, justice, and the American way!



Finally, a lesson from Paul’s life. I want to address the potential within a New Breed Believers or Warriors—if you will—that are going to come out of the corruption and enter the Light of God’s Truth.


I was pondering passages of Scripture that speak about those God brought out of a corrupt system to enter and participate with God’s plans and purposes in the earth.


There are several to choose from but Saul, who became Paul, really encompasses much of what we see taking place with Cultural Marxism, or the Social Justice Warriors. (I’ve done several messages on Cultural Marxism, particularly last year, so for definitions and such, you can check the website.)


Acts 9:1-31

Meanwhile Saul, [a]still drawing his breath hard from threatening and murderous desire against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and requested of him letters to the synagogues at Damascus [authorizing him], so that if he found any men or women belonging to the Way [of life as determined by faith in Jesus Christ], he might bring them bound [with chains] to Jerusalem.  Now as he traveled on, he came near to Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him, And he fell to the ground. Then he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me [harassing, troubling, and molesting Me]? And Saul said, Who are You, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, Whom you are persecuting. [b]It is dangerous and it will turn out badly for you to keep kicking against the goad [to offer vain and perilous resistance].  Trembling and astonished he asked, Lord, what do You desire me to do? The Lord said to him, But arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do. The men who were accompanying him were unable to speak [for terror], hearing the voice but seeing no one. Then Saul got up from the ground, but though his eyes were opened, he could see nothing; so they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And he was unable to see for three days, and he neither ate nor drank [anything].

10 Now there was in Damascus a disciple named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias. And he answered, Here am I, Lord. And the Lord said to him, Get up and go to the street called Straight and ask at the house of Judas for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying [there]. And he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias enter and lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight.  But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard many people tell about this man, especially how much evil and what great suffering he has brought on Your saints at Jerusalem; Now he is here and has authority from the high priests to put in chains all who call upon Your name. But the Lord said to him, Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of Mine to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the descendants of Israel; For I will make clear to him how much he will be afflicted and must endure and suffer for My name’s sake.

17 So Ananias left and went into the house. And he laid his hands on Saul and said, Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, Who appeared to you along the way by which you came here, has sent me that you may recover your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit. And instantly something like scales fell from [Saul’s] eyes, and he recovered his sight. Then he arose and was baptized, And after he took some food, he was strengthened. For several days [afterward] he remained with the disciples at Damascus.

20 And immediately in the synagogues he proclaimed Jesus, saying, He is the Son of God! And all who heard him were amazed and said, Is not this the very man who harassed and overthrew and destroyed in Jerusalem those who called upon this Name? And he has come here for the express purpose of arresting them and bringing them in chains before the chief priests. But Saul increased all the more in strength, and continued to confound and put to confusion the Jews who lived in Damascus by comparing and examining evidence and proving that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah). After considerable time had elapsed, the Jews conspired to put Saul out of the way by slaying him, But [the knowledge of] their plot was made known to Saul. They were guarding the [city’s] gates day and night to kill him, but his disciples took him at night and let him down through the [city’s] wall, lowering him in a basket or hamper. And when he had arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to associate himself with the disciples; but they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe he really was a disciple. However, Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles, and he explained to them how along the way he had seen the Lord, Who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached freely and confidently and courageously in the name of Jesus. So he went in and out [as one] among them at Jerusalem, preaching freely and confidently and boldly in the name of the Lord. And he spoke and discussed with and disputed against the Hellenists (the Grecian Jews), but they were seeking to slay him. And when the brethren found it out, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him off to Tarsus [his home town]. So the church throughout the whole of Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was edified [growing in wisdom, virtue, and piety] and walking in the respect and reverential fear of the Lord and in the consolation and exhortation of the Holy Spirit, continued to increase and was multiplied.


Let’s look at six points from this passage on Saul’s conversion.


  1. Saul was a social justice warrior. He was so enraged at the disciples of the Lord, he sought to destroy them at any cost. So much so, he pursued legal action and permission to arrest and kill any who followed Christ.
  2. In the peak of our passion, the greatest humbling can, and will, hit. So, at what Paul considered to be the height of his mission, Christ met him on the road to Damascus and revealed truth to him. It broke him.
  3. Isolation can bring revelation. God intentionally isolated Paul so He could reveal His truth to him. When these Social Justice Warriors come out of these industries, they will likely feel isolated, we need to pray that God will get ahold of them.
  4. Physical restraints bring spiritual awakening. God blinded Paul so He could open his spiritual eyes. When the scales were removed, Paul arose a refined man, a new breed of believer, ready to devote his life to Christ regardless of the personal or physical cost.
  5. When we come into the Light, former peers often betray us. The very organization Paul served so faithfully his entire life turned on him when he came into the Light, seeking even to kill him in order to silence him. We need to extend grace when needed.
  6. Persistence pays great dividends. Friends, we can never give up. In spite of the many obstacles, the near death experiences, the physical persecution, verbal abuse, and so on, Paul never gave up and as it is written in Acts 17:6, Paul turned the world upside down with his fervent message of the Gospel.


Paul is the perfect example of those who will be fleeing the industries those weights represent.  Saul, who later became known as Paul, was used by God to take the Gospel thousands and thousands of miles, most of that on foot. In addition, he wrote a good chunk of the New Testament.  



The weights are falling off the Flag now. People are fleeing the Media, Academia, Church corruption and the New Breed of Believers, Journalists,  Educators, and Victims turned Victors will come forth! We must pray for them, pray that God will get ahold of them and bring them out, reveal truth to them, remove the scales from their eyes, and set them free to be a voice for His plans and purposes in the earth! The Kingdom of God is here, and we must align ourselves with His plans and work to bring others alongside us, welcoming them in as God has His way in their lives!


These are the New Breed of Warriors that are about to come forth! Let’s pray into their lives and be prepared because together, we are going to turn this nation upside down!


Blessings & love,
