George Washington's Vision: 3 Perils befall the USA
A vision received by George Washington
George Washington's Vision / Prophecy: Three great perils will come upon the Republic (U.S.).
- 1777/1778. A vision received by George Washington.
The father of our country, George Washington, was a man of prayer. Many of us have read of how he went to the thicket many times to pray during the winter his army was at Valley Forge. However, little publicity has been give to the vision and prophecy he received at that time.
The account of this vision was given in 1859 by an old soldier. He gave it to a writer, Wesley Bradshaw, who published it. In the vision God revealed to George Washington that three great perils would come upon the Republic. He was given to know that America was going through the first peril at that time. The old soldier who told the story of the vision said the nation would soon see [soon after 1859] the account verified by the second peril descending upon the land.
We give the account here as printed in the U.S. war veterans paper The National Tribune, in December, 1880. The National Tribune became, "The Stars and Stripes", and this article was reprinted in that publication December 21, 1850.
"I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaging in preparing a dispatch, something in the apartment seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite to me a singularly beautiful being. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of the visit. A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of the eyes.
By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to speak, but my toung became useless, as if parylized. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresitible, took posseession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily , vacantly at my unknown visitor.
Gradually the surrounds atmosphere seemed to fill with sensations, and grew luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor also becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations I sometimes imagine accompaning death. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move. All were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly on my companion.
The introductory part of the Vision
Presently I heard a voice say, "Son of the Republic, look and learn,' while at the same time my visitor extended an arm eastward [toward the Atlantic and Europe]. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon the strange scene. Before me lay, out in one vast plain all the countries of the world -- Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America lay billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific. 'Son of the Republic', said the same mysterious voice as before, 'look and learn.'
The First Peril: The Revolutionary War.
At that moment I beheld a dark shadowy being, like an angel, standing, or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right [West] hand, while with his left [East hand] he cast some over Europe [angel is facing South]. Immediately a cloud arose from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For awhile it remained stationary, and then it moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through at intervals , and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American People. (This may be interpreted to have been the Revolutionary War, then in progress.)
A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud drew back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view.
Westward expansion in America
A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and town cities spring up one right after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, 'Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh [end of the 1700's], look and learn.'
The Second Peril: Slave trade from Africa is used to instigate the Civil War.
And this time a dark shadowy angel turned his face southward. From Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. It flitted slowly and heavily over every town and city of the latter [our land]. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other [the Civil War]. As I continued to look I saw a bright angel on whose brow was traced the word 'Union.' He was bearing the American flag. He placed the flag between the divided nation and said, 'Remember, ye are brethern.' (This may be interpreted as to have been the Civil War.)
Instantly the inhabitants, casting down their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.
George Washington's Vision: USA invaded by Foreign Troops
The Third Peril, Phase 1, the USA is Invaded by Foreign Troops:
For years, UN foreign troops have been brought to the USA, and stationed on recently "shut down" military bases in the USA. They are told to wait, until Martial Law is declared in the USA. These existing foreign troops, combined with the invading foreign troops, are used to implement and enforce Martial Law in the USA, as a key part of the plan to bring the USA under the New World Order (NWO) (i.e. to bring Mystery Babylon (the USA) under the Scarlet Beast of Rev 17).
Again I heard a 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 upon Europe [EU including France, Germany], Asia [Russia, China], and Africa [including Arab countries]. [Possibly the 10 kings of Rev 17:16 who hate Mystery Babylon (the USA).]
Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene. From each of these continents arose thick black clouds that were soon joined into one [under the United Nations (UN) and/or other New World Order (NWO) organizations, possibly joining into one under the scarlet beast of Rev 17:17 ]. And throughout this mass there gleamed a dark read [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 [where some were already temporarily stationed on recently "shut down" USA military bases], which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud.
And [when Martial Law was declared in the USA] I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns and cities, which I had seen spring up. [ Rev 17:16 mentions "burn her with fire." ]
As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, ...
George Washington's Vision: Nuclear Attack on the USA
The Third Peril, Phase 2, Nuclear Attack on the USA:
The 10 kings of Rev 17:16 who hate the woman, Mystery Babylon (the USA), shall "burn her with fire."
As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of 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.' When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.
Instantly a light, as of a thousand suns [a nuclear attack involving a thousand nuclear warheads, each one being as bright as a sun when it explodes] shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments of the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shown the word 'Union,' and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh over come [Mystery, Babylon the great falls, and the nuclear attack is over for the surviving Americans], but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks, and renewed battle [a revival breaks out in America among the survivors?].
George Washington's Vision: USA is victorious (because America Repents)
The Third Peril, Phase 3, USA is victorious (because America Repents).
Again amid the fearful noise of the conflict I heard the mysterious voice say, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped the water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark clouds rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious. [America repents, the judgment is over, and the foreign armies are removed from the USA. A spiritually revived America will leave Americans victorious.]
The Third Peril, Phase 4, America Repents (kneeling down), Revival in America.
Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seem them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard cried with a loud voice: 'While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.' [But no longer as the world's superpower.] And taking from his brow the crown which blazoned the word 'Union,' he placed it down upon the standard while the people, kneeling down said, 'Amen.' [America repents (kneeling down to God), the U.S. returns to being the Christian Nation God created, and a great Revival occurs in the USA. Amen]
Summary of the Vision's 3 Perils.
The scene instanly 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 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 [if America repents, and Americans can learn to live for God]. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and Union.
With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been showed me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States."
