What Rick Joyner’s 1987 Prophecy Reveals About America’s Future

by | Mar 27, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Over the last 30-plus years, I’ve been given dreams that I now understand relate to the reason for the Second American Revolutionary/Civil War. I did not see them as such when I received them, but since my dream on Dec. 14, 2018, they have all come into remarkable focus. I will share these in this study where they fit to help us relate to what is now unfolding.

In 1987, I was shown in a prophetic experience that we had been turning to the left as a nation for a long time. I was also shown a coming sharp turn to the left. I was not shown whether this was good or bad, just that it would happen. I was then shown a reaction to this and a turn back to the right. I saw that we would never again make a sharp turn to the left, but there was a danger that we would go too far to the right.

I wrote about this in my book, The Harvest. That is also when I was told that an eagle needs both a right wing and a left wing to fly. When the weight shifted to the extreme on either wing, it would crash. So the warning was that extreme turns to the right or left could bring us down.

A few years after this, I thought that the extreme turn to the left was with the Clinton administration. Then I was sure it had to be the Obama administration that turned the country much further to the left than Clinton. The Trump administration seems to be the beginning of turning back to the right. Now we have the rise of the new socialists that seem even further to the left, but at this point they do not have the influence to turn the country. What they can do is cause a reaction to tempt us to go even further to the right than we should. The extremes on both the right and the left are enemies of what we are called to be.

So will the right or the left lead us to our destiny, our promised land? Neither will. Something much higher than either of these is coming. With the increasingly extreme political clamor, it is going to take a new generation of transcendent leadership to both see and steer us toward our destiny and purpose.

I’ve studied history for over half a century, and I’ve never seen such remarkable leaders gathered in one place at the same time as I saw in our Founding Fathers. With the possible exception of a mature Lincoln, who he was at the end of his life, it could be argued that we have not had such transcendent leaders since our founding as a nation. What we need now, and what we will be given again, is not just one transcendent leader, but another group of them so that together they will be considered the “new Founding Fathers.” We can also expect some of these to be mothers. The mother element is necessary to see the full vision of what we’re called to be.

Somehow, we must stop thinking right and left, and start looking up, back to our roots. We also need to see our place in the Scriptures, such as Revelation 12:13-16:

When the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. The woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is to be nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Then the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed the flood which the dragon spewed out of his mouth.

Until the advent movement of 1844, this text was almost universally believed by Protestants and evangelical movements to be speaking about America. The woman here is considered to be who the apostle Paul referred to as “Jerusalem above who is our mother.” The male child who will rule the nations is Christ, who was born through the nation of Israel and is now being born through the church of those who have been born of Christ by the Spirit. During the Inquisition, the worst persecution against Protestants and Jews in which it was estimated that as many as 50 million in Europe were tortured and killed, the “earth opened” with the discovery of America. This flood of persecution was then swallowed up as the nations of Europe gave their attention to populating this “new world.”

Of course, the symbol of the United States is the eagle. In the text, we see that “two wings of a great eagle” were given to help the woman, the church, who was carried to a wilderness, which is what America was at that time. Many, if not most, of the first colonists were Protestant Christians and Jews fleeing the persecution in Europe.

For this reason, it seems that one of our basic purposes as a nation is to be a haven for the persecuted Christians and Jews. To this day, Christians and Jews remain the most persecuted people of all. This is not to say that we should not be a haven for other persecuted peoples, but a main purpose that we have is to be a haven for persecuted Christians and Jews, the people who have carried the seed of Christ—the “male Child.”

For this reason, the American Republic is called to be a Judeo-Christian nation. We are not a post-Christian nation, we are a pre-Christian nation. Wait and see. {eoa}
