Godly Quote from George Washington:  
“It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to emplore His protection and favor.”
The Following is an excerpt from a section of Chapter Nine in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy”. I am sharing it here on my blog due to the timeliness of its message as America faces planned” invasions by foreign troops - such as the tens of thousands of foreign soldiers from Russia that have been reportedly undergoing joint military training with certain US Troops recently, and an ongoing and continual influx of millions of supposed refugees and potential terrorists from beyond America's imperiled borders that may eventually help to collapse America's faltering economy. 

Although the authenticity of Washington’s vision has been hotly disputed, I verify its veracity and accuracy in the following excerpt, along with giving my own interpretation of the events described in the vision in parentheses. Intriguingly, this vision describes a terrible final war that will be fought - and I believe has already begun to be fought - on American soil, which parallels the great End Time war described in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39.

In my book, before introducing this vision, I discuss the very real possibility that the war described in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 refers to a war that will first attack the portion of the Two Houses of Israel (Jewish Judah and Gentile Ephraim) called the United States (i.e. Ephraim) rather than the tiny nation of Israel (i.e. Judah) alone. In order to understand Washington's Vision in this context, please read the additional 6-page book excerpt linked to below, in PDF format:

Great Peril Together - PDF File

Washington's Vision not only foresees this Ezekiel 38 and 39 Attack on Israel and America, but offers a real hope that the United States will survive this enormous attack from the many nations that are already invading its borders, and will continue to do so even after the citizens of the USA begin to fight back with force of arms. Furthermore, it suggests that this terrible invasion will end in victory at Yahshua’s Second Coming, when the survivors of the war in America will unashamedly show their gratitude to God.

Excerpt From Pages 415 to 424 of 
The Language of God in Prophecy” by Helena Lehman:

Washington’s Vision Tied to Daniel, Enoch, and Ezekiel

Although it is not found in the Bible, there is another prophetic clue that verifies my preceding interpretation of Ezekiel 38 and 39 (in which I hypothesize that the United States is the primary target of that prophesied war, with Israel being a secondary target), and the Book of Daniel and Revelation in light of the United States in Bible Prophecy. It comes to us in the record of a vision. This vision is not recorded in the Bible, but has so far been proven true by the unfolding of history. It is attributed to George Washington - the first President of the United States, and a devout Christian who also happened to be a high caliber Freemason of the more benign early type described in the last section of this book.

A copy of the prophecy ascribed to George Washington is preserved in the Library of Congress, where it is recorded that the vision appeared in a newspaper article first published in the National Tribune in 1859, and then was reprinted in 1880, 1931, and 1950. The account of the vision reportedly came from a well-respected officer who served under General Washington at Valley Forge named Anthony Sherman. Interviewed when he was 99 years old, Anthony related George Washington’s vision to a reporter named Wesley Bradshaw. Though physically feeble, Sherman was said to still have a sharp mind that was undiminished with age. Bradshaw related that, according to Sherman, a beautiful female angel visited George Washington in the winter of 1777, at Valley Forge. This angel then showed the future President a visionary preview of every major war that would be fought on the American mainland. Because this vision is concerned primarily with wars fought on American soil, it does not mention either World War I or II, or the bombing of Pearl Harbor - since Hawaii was not an official State in the Union when this occurred. For the same reason, it also ignores the Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, and both wars with Iraq.

Intriguingly, the vision was first made public in 1859, which was two years before the American Civil War - a war that was clearly predicted in the vision. For this reason, though the vision that has come down to us is not George Washington’s first-hand account, it continues to hold my interest because it appears to be prophetic. In fact, certain aspects of the vision tie it in theme to the prophecies of Ezekiel and Daniel. I have included the entire vision here, with my own interpretations within it highlighted, and encased in parentheses:

“Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy, and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.”

“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread 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 the 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.’”

“At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel 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 hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a dark cloud rose from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning passed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.” (The American people groan under the unfair taxation of the Colonies by Great Britain, which leads to the Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812. This portion of the vision also encompasses the French and Indian War, and the Spanish-American War, all of which arose from European invaders on American soil.)

“A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view. (This marks the end of this period of wars fought with Europeans on American soil.) 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 towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.” (The spread of America westward and the establishment of 48 of the 50 United States.)

“Again I heard the mysterious voice say, ‘Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. (The slavery of Africans in America is established.) It flitted slowly over every town and city. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other.” (The American Civil War begins.)

“As I continued looking, I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word “Union,” bearing the American flag, which he placed between the divided nation, and said, ‘Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons, became friends once more and united around the National Standard.” (This marks the end of the Civil War, the abolition of slavery, and the reuniting of all the States under one government.)

“And 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 upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were joined into one.” (As will be verified in the next paragraph of the vision, combined forces from “Europe” (the EU nations), “Asia” (which may include Iran, Iraq, India, Pakistan, China, and North Korea), and “Africa” (most likely the Muslims in Egypt and North Africa) form a great army ruled over by the Antichrist. This army then marches on the United States (and Israel!) in what marks the beginning of World War III - possibly toward the end of the Tribulation period.)

“And throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, 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 that I beheld were springing up.” (America’s land and its people are horribly devastated by this foreign enemy invasion.)

“As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again 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.

Though this is not the end of the vision, let’s take a moment to ponder the word “Union” identifying the United States, and the trumpet blasts made by the shadowy angels in George Washington’s vision. Could the word “Union” here be in reference to the staff called “Union” in Zechariah 11:14? Furthermore, could the trumpets in Washington’s vision be connected to the trumpets, or trumpet-like voices, that will be sounded by Yah’s holy angels at the beginning, during, and toward the close of the Tribulation period (Revelation 1:10; 4:1; 8:7,8,10,12-13; 9:1,13-14; 11:15)? Note especially the seventh trumpet of Revelation:

“Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!’” - Rev. 11:15
   
As we will see momentarily in Washington’s vision, the seventh angel of Revelation proclaims that the armies of the Earth, though powerful and destructive in their invasion of Israel and America, will be totally conquered at Yahshua’s triumphant return. Besides this connection to Revelation, George Washington’s vision also has an uncanny similarity with Ezekiel’s vision of the great armies who go against the nation identified as Israel. As was shown in the last section, Ezekiel’s “Israel” may refer to both the United States and the modern nation of Israel:

“You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” - Ezekiel 38:16
   
The interesting parallel here with Ezekiel’s vision is that George Washington sees the enemy invasion of the United States as a dark cloud forming from the water of the ocean sprinkled on the enemy nations by the angel. In this way, the watery cloud of evil allegorically seems to be tied to the beast rising up out of the sea”  in the Book of Revelation. In Washington’s vision, however, the people who live in Africa join Europe, Russia and China in their attack on the United States. This suggests Middle Eastern and Black African Muslim involvement in the Antichrist’s attack on the United States and Israel. An army formed from all these countries could easily number the 200 million soldiers that will wipe out a third of the population of the Earth (Rev. 9:16). Thankfully, this wicked army will be supernaturally destroyed by Christ and His heavenly army at the Battle of Armageddon (Rev. 19:19).

In many ways, Washington’s vision mimics the events seen in Ezekiel’s vision of a swift and perilous invasion where all seems lost. However, just as in Ezekiel’s vision, George Washington’s vision ends with the supernatural intervention of Yahweh Himself, which is revealed after the formation of the “dark cloud” of attacking countries:

“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel, upon whose head still shone 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.” (Christ returns with His heavenly army in order to save both Israel and the United States from total destruction.)

“These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle. Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I 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.” (The remaining Americans fighting against the Antichrist’s army will be saved from death by Yahshua’s return. Furthermore, some of them will be transformed at Yahshua’s return, becoming immortal saints who will join Yahshua’s heavenly army and aid in conquering the wicked. Their combined victory over Satan and his armies will put an abrupt end to the Great Tribulation.)

“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 of them, cried with a loud 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.’” (This indicates that the United States of America will recover from the devastation of the war and will remain “One Nation Under God” until the end of the Millennial Rule of Christ, when the heavens and the Earth will be recreated.)

“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 disappearing, 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 is the third, passing which the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land, and the Union.’ With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat, and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.”

After relating his vision, George Washington stated that this powerful encounter with an angel had shown him an outline of the history of America. Uncannily, this vision also agrees with the prophecies in Daniel and Ezekiel regarding the fate of Israel and the United States. Just as Daniel predicted, George Washington’s vision shows how the symbolic wings of the eagle in Daniel’s vision that represents the United States will be torn off and left without representation in the United Nations. Great Britain will have turned against the United States - along with Russia, Asia, Africa and Europe. Then, under the direction of the Antichrist, they will likely unite under the banner of the United Nations. Subsequently, the Antichrist will likely initiate an invasion of the United States at the same time that he attacks Israel, just as Ezekiel’s vision indicates. This strategically makes perfect sense since the United States is Israel’s most powerful ally, and it may continue to be even after the Rapture, which may lead to a conservative-led military coup here. 

Speaking of the Rapture, since the United States currently has such great military power, something drastic will have to happen to the United States to cripple it militarily before the other nations of the world attack it. This event would have to make America much more vulnerable to invasion. As such, severe economic woes coupled with the Rapture may be the likely culprit. With 25 to 45 percent of its citizens gone, the United States would be thrown into terrible chaos. The U.S. military would also be hard hit if a sizeable number of their troops mysteriously disappear. Though the United States would likely rebound somewhat from this swift and tremendous loss of citizenry, the country would suffer from outbreaks of civil unrest, wholesale looting, and general anarchy. The United States might therefore never fully recover its former strength. Given the Antichrist’s evil and power-hungry nature as disclosed in the Bible, there is no doubt that the Antichrist would capitalize on any weakness in the United States when it would be advantageous for him to do so.

There is also the possibility that, after the Rapture (or even before), nuclear missiles originating from North Korea and other parts of Asia, Russia, or Iran and other parts of the Middle East may be launched against the United States and Israel. Such an attack would kill millions of people unless Yahweh provides supernatural intervention, as is suggested by the prophet Ezekiel (Ezekiel 38:18-23, 39:1-6). Without Yah’s merciful protection, this sort of attack would severely cripple the USA and Israel, leaving them both totally vulnerable to foreign invasion. Nuclear attacks might also send the USA into a state of political and social anarchy - at least for a time.

Terrifyingly, this scenario is not at all farfetched - despite the USA’s heightened security after the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York. Many believers, including myself, have had prophetic visions of nuclear bombs destroying major American cities. These visions are backed up by the fact that Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and other Middle Eastern nations hate the United States due to its constant meddling in international affairs. Consequently, they want to destroy our country, and annihilate our culture and its dominant religion (Christianity) from the face of the Earth. Sadly, many of the leaders of these countries also hate Judaism and the Jews, and they would like nothing better than to wipe out Israel at the same time as the United States.

Despite Satan’s desire to annihilate America and Israel, the Bible indicates that God will prevent their total annihilation. Ezekiel 39 indicates that God will miraculously protect the unwalled nation that undergoes the surprise attack George Washington was shown that the United States will be miraculously delivered right after “the dark, shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth and blew a long and fearful blast.” This is likely the seventh and Last Trumpet heralding the end of the Great Tribulation – when many things will occur simultaneously. The most important event at that time, however, will be the return of Christ with His heavenly army and their annihilation of the enemies of both Israel and America. The Apostle Matthew refers to this time with the following words:
Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” - Matthew 24:29-31  
In Verse 30, which I have highlighted in the preceding Scripture, Yahshua was quoting Daniel 7:13:
“I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him.” - Dan. 7:13  
After utilizing this Scripture, Yahshua indicates that the final stage of the First Resurrection will begin when the Last Trumpet is sounded. At that time, God’s holy angels will gather together all the surviving Tribulation Saints, and they will be “changed - in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye“ as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, and they will meet Christ and the other saints in the air to become royal priests and soldiers in God’s immortal kingdom (1 Thess. 4:17). The events of this glorious future moment in history are also echoed in the Book of 1 Enoch:
“And they shall be terrified, and they shall be downcast of countenance, and pain shall seize them, when they see that Son of Man Sitting on the throne of his glory. And the kings and the mighty and all who possess the earth shall bless and glorify and extol him who rules over all, who was hidden…”  - 1 Enoch 62:5-6
 “And all the kings and the mighty and the exalted and those who rule the earth shall fall down before him on their faces, and worship and set their hope upon that Son of Man, and petition him and supplicate for mercy at his hands… And He will deliver them to the angels for punishment, To execute vengeance on them because they have oppressed His children and His elect. And they shall be a spectacle for the righteous and for His elect: They shall rejoice over them, Because the wrath of the Lord of Spirits resteth upon them, And His sword is drunk with their blood.” - 1 Enoch 62:9-12
In these quotes from 1 Enoch, note that Enoch called Yahshua by the title “Son of Man. This is highly significant, making Enoch the first prophet of God to call the Preincarnate Yahshua the Son of Man in reference to His role as our Redeemer from sin and death. In addition, Enoch refers to the sword of wrath that Yahshua will wield on His Father’s behalf. Among the many times that Yahshua spoke of the Son of Man, He was likely using this term to identify Himself with the Son of Man spoken of in 1 Enoch and Daniel. This is especially evident in the following Scriptures:
“For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.” - Matthew 16:27

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.” - Matthew 25:31  
The Book of Revelation describes harrowing scenes that mirror the passages of coming destruction in 1 Enoch, Daniel, and Matthew. In Revelation, there are numerous chilling passages about what will occur at the Last Trumpet announcing Yahshua’s coming to rule as King of kings:
“And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’” - Revelation 6:15-1  
“Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.” - Revelation 14:14   
“Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God…” “And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.” - Revelation 19:15, 21 
All of these Scriptures appear to refer to the same time period that George Washington speaks of in his vision - the time of the Last Trumpet mentioned in Matthew 24:31. Praise Yah that His Son Yahshua will come to deliver the Tribulation Saints from certain death at the hands of their enemies! But until that time, Scripture teaches that life will literally be Hell on Earth for those who must suffer through the Great Tribulation. Therefore, we should all make every effort to be spared from this terrible time of testing.

End of Excerpt from Chapter 9 of 
“The Language of God in Prophecy” by Helena Lehman

If my date for the beginning of the Tribulation is correct, the invasion of the United States that George Washington foresaw and the ensuing world war will probably occur at mid-Tribulation - when the Sixth Seal is opened, the Rapture occurs, and the Wrath of God begins to be poured out. This war could last until the end of the Great Tribulation, which I believe may happen between the Feast of Trumpets and Rosh Hashanah on September 20th and 21st of 2017, and Rosh Hashanah on September 9th and 10th of 2018. Coupled with the horrible Tribulation plagues, this war will cause much death and destruction in America and the rest of the world. Therefore, time is running out for the current world we know.

After the Millennial Rule of Christ, all the fallen leaders and armies of the nations who went against Israel and the United States will be raised from the dead to attend the Great White Throne Judgment. There, the wicked will be called to account for their actions before and during the Tribulation period. How terrible it will be for them when they appear before the Supreme Judge, for those who are found wanting will meet with the terrible fate of being cast into the Lake of Fire:
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” – Revelation 20:11-15  
At the Great White Throne Judgment, everyone not included in the First Resurrection will be raised to life. This Second Resurrection will occur immediately after the final war at the end of the Millennial Rule of Christ. Though many people raised at this time will go on to inherit everlasting life, many more of them will perish because of their lack of repentance for their evil actions toward the saints during their lives, and their undiminished hatred of Christ.
