The Spirit of God that Was Upon George Washington Is Upon the Body of Christ of America Today

The same Spirit that was upon Washington and those with him is present today in the Body of Christ of America to raise it up and establish God’s Kingdom in America.

Daniel 7:4 states: The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

I have been teaching this verse for more than thirty years. Today the wings of the eagle are being plucked. There is one standing upon the feet of a man with the heart of a man; the Body of Christ. The feet of the man are God’s believers and the heart of a man is Jesus Christ revealed to them.

The Bullet Proof President

From America's Godly Heritage by David Barton
This story of George Washington once appeared in virtually every student text in America, but hasn't been seen in the last forty years. This story deals with George Washington when he was involved in the French and Indian War as a young man only twenty-three years of age.

The French and Indian War occurred twenty years before the American Revolution. It was the British against the French; the Americans sided with the British; and most of the Indians sided with the French. Both Great Britain and France disputed each others' claims of territorial ownership along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers; both of them claimed the same land.

Unable to settle the dispute diplomatically, Great Britain sent 2300 hand-picked, veteran British troops to America under General Edward Braddock to rout the French.

The British troops arrived in Virginia, where George Washington (colonel of the Virginia militia) and 100 Virginia buckskins joined General Braddock. They divided their force; and General Braddock, George Washington, and 1300 troops marched north to expel the French from Fort Duquesne --- now the city of Pittsburgh. On July 9, 1755 --- only seven miles from the fort --- while marching through a wooded ravine, they walked right into an ambush; the French and Indians opened fire on them from both sides.

But these were British veterans; they knew exactly what to do. The problem was, they were veterans of European wars. European warfare was all in the open. One army lined up at one end of an open field, the other army lined up at the other end, they looked at each other, took aim, and fired. No running, no hiding, But here they were in the Pennsylvania woods with the French and Indians firing at them from the tops of trees, from behind rocks, and from under logs. When they came under fire, the British troops did exactly what they had been taught; they lined up shoulder-to-shoulder in the bottom of that ravine -- and were slaughtered. At the end of two hours, 714 of the 1300 British and American troops had been shot down; only 30 of the French and Indians had been shot.

There were 86 British and American officers involved in that battle; at the end of the battle, George Washington was the only officer who had not been shot down off his horse -- he was the only officer left on horseback.

Following this resounding defeat, Washington gathered the remaining troops and retreated back to Fort Cumberland in western Maryland, arriving there on July 17, 1755.

The next day, Washington wrote a letter to his family explaining that after the battle was over, he had taken off his jacket and had found four bullet holes through it, yet not a single bullet had touched him; several horses had been shot from under him, but he had not been harmed. He told them:

By the all powerful dispensations of Providence, I have been protected beyond all human probability or expectation.

Washington openly acknowledged that God's hand was upon him, that God had protected him and kept him through that battle.

However, the story does not stop here. Fifteen years later, in 1770 -- now a time of peace -- George Washington and a close personal friend, Dr. James Craik, returned to those same Pennsylvania woods. An old Indian chief from far away, having heard that Washington had come back to those woods, traveled a long way just to meet with him.

He sat down with Washington, and face-to-face over a council fire, the chief told Washington that he had been a leader in that battle fifteen years earlier, and that he had instructed his braves to single out all the officers and shoot them down. Washington had been singled out, and the chief explained that he personally had shot at Washington seventeen different times, but without effect. Believing Washington to be under the care of the Great Spirit, the chief instructed his braves to cease firing at him. He then told Washington:

I have traveled a long and weary path that I might see the young warrior of the great battle....I am come to pay homage to the man who is the particular favorite of Heaven, and who can never die in battle.

Excerpts from "The Real George Washington" by Jay A. Perry and Andrew M. Allison
By Kathy Currier

One of the officers, Captain Robert Orme, that had been wounded that day said: "Mr. Washington had two horses shot out from under him and his clothes shot through in several places, behaving the whole time with the greatest courage and resolution."

Washington wrote:

We have been beaten, most shamefully beaten, by a handful of men who only intended to molest and disturb our march. Victory was their smallest expectation. But we see the wondrous works of Providence! The uncertainty of human things...

Had I not been witness to the fact on that fatal day I would scarcely give credit to it now."

I have in my possession a book featured on Glen Beck "The Real George Washington" and in it is a prophecy given by the Indian Chief (unnamed) who had commanded the Indians at the fall of Braddock. The two quotes above are also taken from the book. The prophecy was apparently given 15 years after the battle and took place in 1770 when Washington and others were traveling to Ohio examining western lands and were met by an Indian trader who "declared that he was conducting a party which consisted of a grand sachem and some attendant warriors, that the chief was a very great man among the northwestern tribes, and the same who [had] commanded the Indians on the fall of Braddock...Hearing of the visit of Colonel Washington to the western country, this chief had set out on a mission, the object of which [he] himself would make known."

The author wrote: After the two groups had arranged themselves around a council fire, the old Indian rose and spoke to the group through an interpreter:

"I am a chief, and the ruler over many tribes. My influence extends to the waters of the great lakes and to the far blue mountains. I have traveled a long and weary path that I might see the young warrior of the great battle.

It was on the day when the white man's blood mixed with the streams of our forest that I first beheld this chief. I called to my young men and said, Mark yon tall and daring warrior? He is not of the red-coat tribe--he hath an Indian's wisdom, and his warriors fight as we do--himself is alone exposed. Quick, let your aim be certain, and he dies. Our rifles were levelled, rifles which but for him knew not how to miss--'twas all in vain; a power mightier far than we shielded him from harm. He cannot die in battle.

I am old, and soon shall be gathered to the great council fire of my fathers in the land of shades, but ere I go there is something bids me speak in the voice of prophecy. Listen! The Great Spirit protects that man, and guides his destinies--he will become the chief of nations, and a people yet unborn will hail him as the founder of a mighty empire."

Apparently there is no record of Washington's response to the Chief's words but a friend, Dr. James Craik, who had witnessed the above account, shared it on numerous occasions to soldiers during the Revolutionary War when Washington was dangerously exposed on the battlefield.
