from: The Prophecy Club

The father of our Country, George Washington, was a man of
prayer. We have all 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 given to the
prophetic vision he received during one of those times.

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 that the nation would soon
see the account verified by the second peril descending upon
the land.

We give the account here as it was reprinted in the U.S. war
veterans' paper, The National Tribune, in December, 1880.
The National Tribune is now The Stars and Stripes. This
article was reprinted in The Stars and Stripes December 21,
1950. Here is the report of this phenomenal, and most
important, heavenly message for us at this hour.

Wesley Bradshaw wrote:

The last time I ever saw Anthony Sherman was on the fourth
of July, 1859, in Independence Square. He was then
ninety-nine years old, and becoming very feeble. But though
so old, his dimming eyes rekindled as he gazed upon
Independence Hall, which he came to visit once more.

"Let us go into the hall," he said. "I want to tell you of
an incident of Washington's life, one which no one alive
knows of except myself, and if you live, you will before
long see it verified. Mark the prediction, you will see it

"From the opening of the Revolution, we experienced all
phases of fortune, now good and now ill, one time victorious
and another conquered. The darkest period we had, I think,
was when Washington after several reverses, retreated to
Valley Forge, where he resolved to pass the winter of 1777.
Ah! I have often seen the tears coursing down our dear
commander's care-worn cheeks, as he would be conversing with
a confidential officer about the condition of his poor
soldiers. You have doubtless heard the story of Washington's
going to the thicket to pray. Well, it was not only true,
but he used often to pray in secret for aid and comfort. And
God brought US safely through the darkest days of

"One day, I remember it well, the chilly winds whistled
through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and
the sun shone brightly. He remained in his quarters nearly
all the afternoon, alone.  When he came out, I noticed that
his face was a shade paler than usual, and there seemed to
be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance.
Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the
quarters of an officer, who was presently in attendance.
After a preliminary conversation of about half an hour,
Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look
of dignity which he alone could command, said to the latter:

"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 engaged in preparing a dispatch, something in the
apartment seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld
standing opposite 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 tongue had become useless, as if
paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent,
irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to
gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor."

"Gradually the surrounding 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 which I
have sometimes imagined accompany 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 at my

"Presently I heard a voice saying, 'Son of the Republic,
look and learn,' while at the same time my visitor extended
an arm eastward. 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, 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 hand, while with his left he cast some over Europe.
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 it 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 was then drawn
back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from

 "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. Again, I heard the mysterious
voice say, 'Son of the Republic, the end of the century
cometh, look and learn."

"And this time the 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. The inhabitants presently set themselves
in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I
saw a bright angel on whose brow rested a crown of light, on
which was traced the word 'UNION'. He was bearing the
American flag. He placed the flag between the divided nation
and said, 'Remember, ye are brethren.

 "Instantly the inhabitants, casting down their weapons,
became friends once more and united around the National

"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
continents arose thick black clouds that were soon joined
into one. And throughout this mass there gleamed 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 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 cannon,
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." Where 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 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 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 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, Ieaving 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 of them, cried with a loud voice: 'While the stars
remain, and the heaven send down dew upon the earth, so long
shall the UNION last". And taking from his brow the crown on
which 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 a1so 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. 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 shown me the birth, the progress, and
destiny of the United States."

"Such, my friends," the venerable narrator concluded, were
the words I heard from Washington 5 own lips, and America
will do well to profit by them"
