¶ From my little homestead here in the hills of Kentucky, in the Year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twenty-Four AD, I would like to tax these old eyes a bit by looking back 3000 years over the well-fortified walls of God’s ancient Crown Jewel, Jerusalem, which, 3000 years ago was like unto a diamond in which a holy fire leaped from within overarching the entire Nation of Israel with the Presence of God. This Glory emanated from the Ark of the Covenant within the Holy of Holies, not out of Solomon’s Temple but out of a tent, the Tabernacle of David, which was compassed about by musicians and singers worshiping God twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, creating a heavenly atmosphere that not only settled upon Jerusalem but stretched out over the surrounding hills and valleys of the entire land as if the Son Himself was shining down through a firmament of fine cut diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, illuminating this Crown Jewel with an ambiance akin to Eden. A vestige of that Glory rests upon that Resurrected Land to this very day – though it is but a flicker of what it once was. From that ancient Crown Jewel I’d like to journey forward from 1010 BC to 1777 AD  to a poorly supplied encampment, not unlike David’s Ziklag, where, just seven years before being coronated King of Israel, David was an outlaw hiding out with 600 faithful warriors and their families from Saul and his regiment of myrmidons. However, the encampment I’m looking at is on the far side of God’s earth from David’s Ziklag and has come to be known as Valley Forge. It is here in the bitter cold winter of 1777 AD where we find still another outlaw warrior on his knees, as was King David, yes, another warrior warring against all odds with yet another Goliath for the birth of yet another Crown Jewel. Between these two Crown Jewels lay just under 3000 years of history, yet we find this warrior, George Washington, on his knees seeking the same God of heaven and earth as did the “Man after God’s own Heart” nearly 3000 years earlier.

¶ As was King David, so was this warrior, a man of common descent. And although this warrior, George Washington, was not known as A Man After God’s Own Heart, he did sincerely seek the very same God of heaven and earth for yet another nation yearning to be born under heaven. Another nation yearning, against all odds, with groans too deep to utter. Yearnings and groans that rose up from the earth and into the heavens above, not unlike the voice of Abel’s blood, from yet another blood-soaked soil on the far side of the world out of a wilderness known as America. Thirteen Colonies, yearning with groans too deep to utter “for their Time under heaven!”  Oh yes, “To everything there is a season and a time for every one of God’s purposes under heaven: However, just as there is a Time to be Born, there is also a Time to die” {Ecc. 3:1,2 wcv}

¶ After suffering a bitter defeat by the British while trying to retake Philadelphia several months earlier, George Washington, on the 19th of December, 1777, led the main body of the Continental Army of, some say 12,000, some say 25,000, into Washington’s Ziklag, their winter quarters at Valley Forge, which lay only 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia which was now occupied by the enemy, the British. During the march to Valley Forge George Washington wrote this: “To see men without clothes to cover their nakedness, without blankets to lay on, without shoes by which their marches might be traced by the blood from their feet, and almost as often without provisions as with; marching through frost and snow and at Christmas taking up their winter quarters within a day’s march of the enemy, without a house or hut to cover them till they could be built, and submitting to it without a murmur is a mark of patience and obedience which in my opinion can scarcely be paralleled.”


¶ These men, women, and children of full resolve were the Soul of what was to become a new Nation. Where are these men, women, and children of like character today? Where are their descendants? Where is the Soul of this Nation?  According to the news today, the propaganda machine, we seem to be few! However, hopefully, in this nation, though we may be but a few, we are of the great majority of God Almighty under heaven! Whatever number we have come to be, like David and his band of 600 faithful warriors at Ziklag, like Washington and his faithful warriors at Valley Forge, we are about to find out who will stand and who will run!

¶ By the end of December 1777 Washington had no way to feed or clothe his soldiers. In that desperate, bitter cold Valley Forge winter of 1777 starvation and disease took the lives of somewhere around 2000 soldiers and as many as 1,500 horses, still, you did not hear them complaining about their “rights” simply because their “rights” were the very “Thing” they were fighting for, just as we are this very hour, on the very same ground in this very same Nation 247years later. It’s called “Freedom” and it ain’t free!!! “To everything, there is a season and a Time for every purpose under heaven; for a Nation, it was a Time to be born, yet at the same Time, for many, it was a Time of great sacrifice, suffering, and mourning, and still for others, it was a Time to Die” {Ecclesiastes 3:1,2 wcv}  Tis no wonder there are so many illustrations of George Washington on his knees seeking the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for mercy, grace, and victory for the Birth of a Nation, God’s New Crown Jewel of the West, so that men might be free to worship the Lord God of heaven and earth with all their hearts, all their minds, and all their souls and to seek Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Godliness, which, honestly, is the only way to pursue lasting happiness. I promise you, these men, women, and children of 1777 did not make such a sacrifice to see their One Nation Under God come under the rule of perverse pedophiles, cowards, godless tyrants, violent street gangs, Satanists, baby killers, actors, drug lords, and lying politicians, two hundred and forty-seven years later, which brings us to where we are today; Livin On the Gover’ment Plantation.

There’s a devil in the Big House, helter skelter on the Hill,

Scallywags with carpetbags cleanin’ out the till,

Shadow Brutes and Charlatans, their best-laid plans be damned

When Judgment comes a ridin’ down thru the Promised Land.  


Livin on the Gover’ment Plantation,

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high.

Livin’ on the Gover’ment Plantation,

They’ll have you Whistlin’ Dixie

Till the day that you die.


Am I not a brother, are you not a man?

Is it all to Black and White for us to understand?

I hear the hounds of heaven, I hear thunder rollin’ in.

There is a storm a brewin’ Among the souls of men


There’s a devil in the Big House with a belfry full of bats,

He keeps up there in the dark workin’ neath his hat.

Bewitcher of the Brethren, look deep into his eyes

What he is he always was – “Father of Lies”.


Livin on the Gover’ment Plantation…


Color don’t mean nothin’, we all come from One Blood.

It happened in the Garden, It made it thru the Flood

Right is right, wrong it ain’t, what “lies” between the two

If we take to livin’ lies, Goodby Red, White, and Blue


Livin on the Gover’ment Plantation,

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high.

Livin’ on the Gover’ment Plantation,

they’ll have you Whistlin’ Dixie

Till the day that you die.       {Gover’ment Plantation © Will Callery}

¶ The Scriptures say that “…our God is a jealous God.” (Exodus 34:14) and that He is jealous beyond measure for His Crown Jewels. Our Father is as jealous for this Crown Jewel, the United States of America as He was for His Ancient Crown Jewel of which Jerusalem was the Center, the Apple of His Eye, (Song of Solomon 8:6, Zechariah 1:14)) which is why, after nearly 2000 years of complete extinction, in the Year of Our Lord One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty-Eight AD (1948), Israel miraculously appeared out of the past. When the Lord prophesies in His Word that He is not done with something, that is exactly what He means. Even though the Fat Lady was commanded by the world to sing the Grand Finale over the demise of that Ancient Crown Jewel, Israel, and even though she is not mentioned in the Book of Ecclesiastes, that Fat Lady was indeed the “Vanity of Vanities”.  Why, she had the whole world singing in vain over the demise of Israel and now she’s back bellowing out the Last Curtain Call over our Beloved Nation. Is she singing in vain?

Like that Ancient Crown Jewel of Old, the judgment of God has come upon this Crown Jewel. Why?  For displaying far too many of the earmarks and character traits that caused the Ancient Crown Jewel, not only to fall, but to be leveled, as it will be once again in the Last Days. Still, like ancient Israel, God is far from done with us, nonetheless, in no way does that mean we, and Israel alike, are not about to pass through the refining fires of the Fiery Touchstone of Our Father. And though He will never leave us nor forsake us, He will, without a doubt, purge us with a fiery sanctification until the dross is nowhere to be found, individually and as a nation. Why? Because we, the Children of Promise, are the heartbeat of this nation, and who the Lord loves, He reproves, chastises, corrects, purifies, and purges until “we get it” or we burn!

¶ God is not just concerned about the nations! The nations are His, All of them, and, IN TIME, He will sanctify them, ALL of them! Put that in your game and see how it plays out! God loves the nations and wants to heal them all, and even though they are, at this time, far from being Crown Jewels, they ALL belong to Him and He will do with them as He sees fit. Remember this, ” As high as the heavens are above the earth, so are His ways higher than our ways”, and believe me, “how we think things are supposed to be doesn’t even come close to what He thinks.” (Isaiah 55:8,9) …. neither is any second-guessing, patronizing, sugar-coated, fabricating, false prophet going to nail down what God thinks or change how God is about to do anything.  This I do know, He will tread down the wickedness of this nation, along with every false prophet into a cloud of fine dust, as He would any other nation and, with the Winds of Judgment, blow away its wicked chaff like ashes in a gale so that those who remain Standing, the Children of the Promise who are about to inherit the earth, shall have Holy Ground upon which to walk in the Age To Come. Mark, not my word, but the Word of the Lord, “The judgment of God upon the wickedness of this nation will start in the House of the Lord.” {1Peter 4:17 wcv} …with you and with me, and in case you haven’t noticed, it has already begun. I would seriously consider that and act accordingly. The final pieces of the Mystery of God prophesied of in the Scriptures by the prophets of old will be put into place by His Divine Providence alone. He is this very hour, beckoning all of those who have “Ears to Hear” to come out of the Harlotry of the American Christendom that is OWNED by the self-promoting great grande poo-pahs of doo-lally-land – “COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE”. (Revelation 18:4). God’s people are not “In the world”. God is speaking to those who have FALLEN in love with the churchy HARLOT.  For multitudes of “so-called” Christian organizations in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, “Not one stone shall be left upon another.”(Matthew 24:2 ¹wcv) Nonetheless, when He puts it all back together, not one stone of the FAITHFUL shall be out of place or missing.

Who are these that fly as a cloud,

As doves to My window,

Bringing in their sons from afar?

Sons of thunder, Sons of strangers,

Sons to build up My Holy Walls!

Living Stones!          ©wc  (Isaiah 60:8) 

¶ According to the Scriptures, Almighty God will restore a nation (2 Chronicles 7:14)But, He will restore it on no other Foundation than that which was laid down by the Apostles and the Prophets with Jesus Christ Himself being (that Foundation) (and) the Chief Corner Stone.”{Ephesians 2:20 wcv} …which means; that in these End Times, the only nations that will not completely fall to the Anti-Christ, if there are any, will be Godly Nations. You can be “for” God or you can be “against” Him, but I promise you, He will have it His Way. (Matthew 12;30. ¹wcv)  The people and the nations who refuse to gather with Him, because of the dearth and drought, will be scattered like ashes in the wind, put to flight by the slightest breeze, and run like all of hell is after them when absolutely nothing visible is chasing them. The dust of these “Stars” He will scatter to the ends of the earth until that Last Great Trumpet sounds and their stardust, like chaff, is gathered by harvesting angels to come and give an account before Him on the Day of Dead Reckoning. (Revelation 14:15, Joel 3:13, Amos 2:14, Revelation 17:14)

¶ Because of our Golden Calves, Baalish Bents, and Stylish Blinders, the Posts of this great nation are being moved out of their places. They are shaking uncontrollably.” {Amos 9:1 wcv}  The foundation is cracked, the walls are crumbling, and I fear, Oh, Chicken Little, that the sky is about to fall.

¶ My Lord and my God, how far we’ve come from 1776…

…which leads me to lead you to a little-known encounter George Washington had with the Lord at Valley Forge, known in days gone by as George Washington’s Angelic Visitation at Valley Forge.


¶ 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 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 its 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 of 1880. The National Tribune is now called The Stars and Stripes. This article was reprinted in the Stars and Stripes on 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 verified.” “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 to often pray in secret for aid and comfort. Thus God brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.” “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 singular 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 companion.”

FIRST GREAT PERIL {The Revolutionary War}

¶ “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.”


¶ “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.” “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 comes, look and learn.’ “And this time the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward. From Africa, I saw an ill-omened specter 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, you are brethren.’ “Instantly the inhabitants, casting down their weapons, became friends once more and united around the National Standard.”  “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 was enveloped in the volume of the cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and ~ 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, 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 the 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 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 the destiny of the United States.'”

¶ Such, my friends, the venerable narrator, Anthony Sherman, concluded, “These words I heard from Washington’s own lips, and America will do well to profit by them.”
