George Washington's Vision

  George Washington, who was a great leader, and also a Prophet, had a vision of the latter days of America, and it's final conflict.

   During the Revolutionary war in 1777, at Valley Forge, George Washington told of his vision to Anthony Sherman, a young soldier. The vision was published by Wesley Bradshaw, in the National Tribune, volume four, number twelve, in December of 1880. The part of Washington's vision that applies to the future is as follows;

  Again, I heard the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." At this the dark shadowy Angel, placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts and Taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it on Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene, from each of these continents, arose thick black clouds, that were soon joined into one, and throughout this mass, was a dark red light, by which I saw hordes of armed men.

   These men, moving with the cloud, marched by land, and sailed by sea to 'America,' which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country, and burn the villages, towns, and cities which I had seen springing up.

   As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannons, clashing of the swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I again heard the mysterious voice saying, "Son of the Republic, look and learn." As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time, dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.

   Then once more I beheld the villages, towns, and cities springing up where I had seen them before. While the bright angel planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst if them cried in aloud voice, "While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the union last." And taking from his brow the crown on which was blazoned the word 'Union,' he placed it upon the standard, while the people kneeling down said "Amen."

   The scene instantly began to fade, and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising curling vapor, I at first beheld. This also disappeared and I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who in the same voice I had heard before said, "Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted;"

"Three great perils will come upon the Republic, the most fearful for her is the third, but the whole world united, shall not prevail against her."

(NOTE--These three great perils were the 'Revolutionary war,' the 'War Between the States,' and will be...THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON' which will be fought in the near future on America's soil, It will be God's battle!)
