THE UNCOMMON MAN
The great British statesman and four times Prime Minister,
William E. Gladstone, once proposed the creation
of a grouping of pedestals for statues of history's most famous men. One pedestal stood higher than all the rest, and Gladstone
was asked to identify the figure to be given the place of honor. Without a moment's hesitation, he named George
At the Continental Congress,
meeting in Philadelphia, December 1799, one of Washington's
finest military commanders, the famous cavalry general, Henry
"Light-Horse Harry" Lee, now Congressman
from Virginia (and later to become that
state's governor) upon hearing of the death of our first president, rose to his feet and with tears in his eyes spoke for
all Americans for all time when he said of Washington,
"First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen."
Many students of history consider George
Washington to be the greatest man who ever lived. Certainly, he was the greatest American - a
brilliant, educated, successful man who risked everything for the freedom of our country.
was a man of great moral character. He was forthright, honest, charitable and a gentle man of quiet modesty and proper deportment
- considerate, kind and courteous.
was also a man of great talent. He was knowledgeable in agriculture, was a surveyor with an established reputation, and early
in life became a land owner of some importance and considerable wealth.
He was held in such respect that at the age of 21 he was made
a Major and Adjutant
of the Virginia Militia, and so distinguished himself
that at the age of 23 was made Commander in Chief
of the Frontier Forces of Virginia.
had a commanding appearance. He was the most physically impressive of all of our Presidents,
and in his prime stood over 6 feet 4 inches tall and was a lean and powerful 225 pounds. In addition, this handsome figure
had a distinct military bearing.
was appropriately described by colleagues and writers of the time as "... straight, tall, wide-
shouldered, with head well shaped, large straight nose, penetrating blue-gray eyes, a long handsome face terminating in a
good firm chin, clear fair skin, firm mouth, and a commanding countenance; with speech, movement and gestures which are agreeable,
differential, engaging and graceful."
Most important of all, Washington
was a man with a total sense of responsibility, unquestioned integrity and deep devotion to God.
THE RESOLUTE LEADER
Among the many outstanding men of leadership in the American
stood out above all. Once the War for Independence
began, he was quickly and logically chosen Commander-in-Chief
of the Colonial Forces. Washington
had the impossible task of taking a few thousand untrained volunteers and leading them against the armies of the world's greatest
empire. Great Britain was a powerful and progressive
empire. Great Britain was a powerful and progressive
nation with colonies and influence around the world, and she had mighty armies and fleets to defend her possessions. England
could accurately boast that the sun never set upon her flag or the British empire.
To add to the difficulties was the fact that the American
Colonies were not united, were economically weak, had no standing army and no navy, and had
only three million people, who were seriously divided as to whether or not to fight for freedom.
It is not known what percentage of the Colonists
genuinely supported the cause for freedom. Many of those who opposed independence constantly gave help, comfort and support
to the enemy. Probably no more than 3% of the people in the Colonies
actually took part in the fight for American independence.
Then, as now, apathy, self- interests, uncertainty and fear prevailed among a large portion of the population.
Once the Declaration
of Independence had been signed and Washington's
forces were pitted against the British,
his army was so greatly out numbered and so ill equipped that many thought him fool hardy to even attempt to fight the most
powerful nation in the world. Seldom in all of history has such a task been undertaken under such unfavorable conditions.
However, Patrick Henry in his famous "Give
me liberty or give me death" speech hit directly upon his reasons for hoping for ultimate
victory when he said, "God will raise up friends to fight our battles for us."
WASHINGTON IN BATTLE
led his men with a passion, courage and fortitude that could come only from total dedication. When the Continental
Congress did not, or could not, send the funds for his soldiers' supplies and salaries, Washington
paid for them out of his own pocket. He gained and held the allegiance of his men because he was fair, firm, resolute and
dedicated. Moreover, he was a devoutly Christian
man who made no apology for prayer. He repeatedly called upon God
for deliverance and victory in the struggle for freedom.
THE MAN OF GOD
The paintings of George
Washington kneeling in prayer in the snow-covered woods of Valley
Forge are based on fact. He believed that God
would lead him to victory, and anyone who has read his hand written letters and documents cannot help but be impressed by
his reliance on the Almighty
and his deep belief in Divine Guidance.
Strengthened by a sense of duty and honor, driven by a love
of freedom and a hunger for justice, sustained by faith and confidence in divine providence - George
Washington would not fail. He would fulfill his destiny. This uncommon man would lead the colonial
forces to victory, become the father of our country, be unanimously acclaimed our first President,
and set the course for what was to become history's greatest nation.
Little wonder then that he was shown great favor by the God
of our universe. As the prophets of old were shown the destiny of mankind, so was Washington
shown the destiny of our nation. General Washington

had an unusual and profound spiritual experience in Valley Forge.
He was given a vision of so momentous importance that it prompts the writing of this paper and the dissemination of this information
to all concerned Americans.
told of the event shortly after it took place. It was repeated to his close confidantes and follow patriots during the 22
years he lived after its occurrence. And it has been carried in print from time to time over the past 200 years. However,
since spiritual experiences tend to be ignored by secular historians, it has remained at times an obscurity.
best expressed the relationship between man's highest aspiration and the great Creator
when he wrote, "God who gave us life, gave us liberty."
Throughout history, as is well documented in Holy Scripture
and readily attested to by millions of observant people, God
has raised up individuals, usually temporal leaders, to fulfill the destiny of men and nations.
It is the personal opinion of this writer that God
moulded, inspired and directed George Washington.
He was, indeed, chosen to be a special man, at a special time, for special purpose.
Various accounts of George
Washington's vision and prophecy all agree in content. There have been only minor
variations in some details as the story was repeated over the years by those to whom it was related by General
The place was Valley
Forge, in the cold and bitter winter of 1777. Washington's
army suffered several reverses and the situation was desperate. Food was scarce. The Continental
Congress was not sending supplies or money. Some of the troops did not even have shoes to wear
in the snow. Many soldiers were sick and dying from disease and exposure. Morale was at an all-time low and there was great
agitation in the Colonies
against continued effort to secure our freedom from England.
Nevertheless, General Washington was determined to see the
These are the words of a first-hand observer, Anthony
Sherman, who was there and describes the situation: "You
doubtless heard the story of Washington's going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition
of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation."
"One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled
through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown 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. There seemed to be something
on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was
presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington,
gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that
WASHINGTON'S OWN WORDS
"This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in
preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female.
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 her presence. 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 her 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 address
her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become 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 as
if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, 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 stranger 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 hand he cast some on Europe.
Immediately a cloud raised 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 gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries
of the American people.
COMMENT: This part of the vision
is probably describing the war of Independence.
"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 in sank from view. 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.' At this the dark shadowy
angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I
saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly 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,'
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.
COMMENT: This part of the vision
is most likely describing the Civil War over which involved the slave trade that was brought to America from Africa.
"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 soon joined into one.
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. Our country was enveloped
in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that
I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, 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.
"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. These immediately
joined the inhabitants of America,
who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed
"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!
"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
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 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, but in this greatest conflict 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 to me the birth, progress, and
destiny of the United States.
This ended General
George Washington's vision and prophecy
for the United States of America as told in his words.
George Washington's vision has been published from
time to time and is recorded in the Library of Congress. What I have related regarding
this prophecy, as well as the explanations and remarks setting the historical background of this profound event, are not original
thoughts or even initially reported facts. It has simply been my duty to set them down in order to increase your understanding
and motivation for the struggle ahead.
We are now moving rapidly into the third and greatest peril
of Washington's revelation. The signs of its fulfillment
are readily evident to all who are not blinded by apathy, over indulgence, or self-delusion.
on every continent, under the political forces of Communism,
are hostile to the United States. America
has few friends left in the world and even fewer still who will have the strength or will to stand beside her in any future
Lenin foretold the series of events:
"First we will take Russia, next we will capture the nations of eastern Europe, then we will take
the masses of Asia. Finally, we will surround the United States and that last bastion of freedom will fall into our hands
like over-ripe fruit."
In Washington's vision,
he saw America attacked and invaded by vast military forces
from Europe, Asia and Africa.
He saw that with those forces there "gleamed a dark, red light"
- the color and symbol of Communism. He saw our cities aflame (as a result of
nuclear attack, burned by mobs fomenting anarchy and revolution); the whole nation devastated, and millions dying in mortal
Then, at the point of fiercest and final battle, the great
angel, the guardian of this nation, descended from the heavens with legions of white spirits who joined forces with the Americans
and destroyed the invading armies.
There are several important points which should be recognized
by every American who reads this pamphlet:
It is time for all Americans
to heed the warning that Patriots have been carrying across this land for several
decades. The people of this nation are entering a period of great trial and tribulation. There will be an economic collapse,
then a disintegration of domestic order, followed by anarchy and foreign invasion. There will be armed conflict with terrible
death and destruction.
America is the promised land. The Christian
people of North America
are God's chosen people. We will prevail because it is our destiny
to prevail. But we have permitted corruption, perversion, immorality, greed, personal pleasure, and materialism to become
our way of life. We have permitted alien, anti-Christians (Illuminati/Councel on Foriegn Relations) to gain control of our country. We have allowed traitors to hold the highest positions of authority within
our nation. We have reached such a point of degradation that we are even killing our own unborn children - bringing about
our own genocide. Therefore, because of immorality, loss of faith, and the abandonment of our God
- centered heritage, America and her people will receive a chastisement
of immeasurable ferocity.
The events which you are reading about are neither fiction, a patriotic story, not
a series of simple historical happenings. The authenticity of Washington's revelation
is clearly supported by a number of other prophecies over the past several hundred years, all pointing to a great "end
times" battle in which the forces of almost the entire world are directed against the United
This is a cataclysmic demonstration of the power
of God and the fact that His
will shall not be frustrated and His plan shall not be denied.
We Americans have accepted and enjoyed our many blessings and great bounty without gratitude; and we have failed to understand
and fulfill our special role as a nation. Consequently, we will soon feel that wrath which is our just punishment.
However, even at this late hour, responsible Americans can
still rise up, remove the traitors and parasites from government, build a strong national defense, return our economy and
money system to a firm base, wipe out the immorality and perversion which corrupts our people, set new standards of integrity
and honor for the national character, and reverse the present suicidal course of the nation.
If we do these things,
we can still avoid much of the world-wide tragedy and suffering ahead, for there are many references in the Scripture
that the punishment of the Lord may be withheld - if we believe, repent, work
and fight if necessary; while we call upon Him for
But if we, as a nation, do not urgently and with every means at our disposal, set ourselves to the task;
then only those strong, righteous, and courageous individuals who prepare now-mentally, morally and physically-will survive.
But we must act now. We are in the twelfth hour. There is no more time to waste. Good Americans
must make a decision and a commitment now.
Nevertheless, even if many others "heed not the watchman,"
be not afraid. Those who do hear and prepare shall survive "the word."
Courageous and God-fearing Americans who are prepared to survive, yet willing to
fight and die-for our families, our country, our civilization and our Lord
- those Americans will prevail and live to build a new Republic
which shall endure. Good will triumph over evil, even if He must intervene on behalf of His
Remnant to make it so.
George Washington, the greatest man ever to walk this continent,
should serve as our example in these troubled times. Washington's selfless
devotion to his Country, his total dedication to the Cause
of Liberty, his blameless private life and high personal standards of morality and character-all
made him universally loved and respected. He should be the hero and the model for every man and boy in America
General Washington was a man of principle, wisdom, determination,
and great courage. He was a God fearing man who prayed for
direction, strength and support from the Almighty,
and he accepted the purpose and destiny for which he was created.
also had the courage to take up arms and physically fight for his God
and his country. He did not expect other men or the Creator
to do it for him, nor did he foolishly think that some how God would pluck him from the
scene so that he might avoid the hardships, suffering, and perhaps even death which were imminent. Good men, including dedicated
Christians, have never escaped tribulation; but those, like Washington,
who are prepared, are given the strength and protection to see it through.
Finally, you the reader should be aware that at this very hour, the ground work is
being laid to bring the conservative, Christian
and patriotic people of this nation together so that they might be coordinated in a movement which will regain control of
our own government and defend this nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Even now, the leaders of this
movement are being gathered, tried, tested, and tempered for the work ahead, when righteous forces, assembled together, will
bring ultimate victory to our people-so that, as the Angel proclaimed, "While the stars remain,
and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall America last."
Sons and Daughters of the Republic, you are living in the
most crucial and momentous period in the history of mankind. It will be a time of great trial. The events foretold are not
only foretold in George Washington's vision; but the Holy
Bible as well and they are coming. There is no escape. The only question is whether or not
you will have the judgment, courage, and sense of destiny to stand with those of us who already stand; for with the help of
Almighty God and his son; Jesus Christ
our savior, we shall be victorious!

Washington had told the vision.

and becoming very feeble; but though so old, his dimming eyes rekindled as he looked at Independence Hall, which he said he
had come to gaze upon once more before he was gathered home.
"What time is it?" he said, raising his trembling eyes to
the clock in the steeple, and endeavoring to shade the former with a trembling hand.
"What time is it?" I can't see so well as I used to."
"Half past three." "Come then," he continued, "let us go into
the Hall; I want to tell you an incident in Washington's life - one which no one alive knows of except myself, and if you
live you will before long see it verified."
"From the opening of the revolution we experienced all phases
of fortune – now good and now ill; at one time victorious, at another conquered.

after several reverses, retreated to Valley Forge, where he resolved to pass the winter of ‘76’

hour, Washington gazing upon his companion with a strange look of dignity, which alone he could command, said to the latter:
"I do not know whether it was owing to the
anxiety of my mind or what, but this afternoon as I was sitting at this very table, engaged in preparing a dispatch, something

retain my judgment seat THAT I MAY PRESERVE THE RIGHTS AND THE LIBERTY
OF MY PEOPLE. MY SOUL STANDETH FAST IN THAT LIBERTY IN THE WHICH GOD HATH MADE US FREE." (Alma 61:1,6, 7, 9) see 10-14

The "STONE" (seer) "MOUNTAIN" (Kingdom)
In the Bible we read in Daniel
2:28-49 about Daniel, telling King Nebuchadnezzar's dream. The head of GOLD was
Babylon, and the arms of SILVER were the MEDO-PERSIAN EMPIRE, the belly of BRASS was the GREEK EMPIRE, the legs of IRON, were
the ROMAN EMPIRE. The feet were IRON AND CLAY, Europe today; some strong and some weak. The 10 nations of the European "common
market" for the "toes." Verse 34: "Thou sawest till that A STONE ("seer") was cut out WITHOUT HANDS,
(of man to help God) which smote the image (of the "world's kingdoms") upon his feet ("feet,"
not at "the time" of the head or belly or
legs) that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces. ("Future") Then in verse 35 and 45 we learn that the stone cut
out by God became a great "mountain." ("KINGDOM OF GOD")
Isaiah 28:16 says:
Therefore thus saith the Lord God, BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION
for a foundation A STONE, ("seer") A TRIED STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER STONE, ("Christ") See 1 Corinthians 3:11 and Matthew 21:42-46)
a sure foundation."
Again Isaiah say’s:
"And it shall come to pass IN THE LAST DAYS, THAT THE
MOUNTAIN ("KINGDOM OF GOD")
of the Lord's house SHALL BE ESTABLISHED IN THE TOP (TOP) of the mountains. (Isaiah
2:2) More than a mile; higher
than Denver, known as the mile high City.
