God removed from HIS STORY books

George Washington

Prior to 1934 an incredible story about George Washington, a man of great faith and a founding father of America appeared in school textbooks. The man who once said; “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 implore His protection and favors.” The story occurred on July 9th, 1755. George Washington was with the British troops under General Edward Braddock when they were ambushed by the French. The Brits were being slaughtered. Washington rode horseback, back and forth across the battle delivering orders from General Braddock to the troops. Every other officer on horseback, except Washington was shot down. Even General Braddock was killed, at which point the troops fled in confusion. Washington wrote to his brother John Washington after the battle: But by the all powerful dispensations of Providence, I have been protected beyond all probability or expectation ; for I had four bullets through my coat , and two horses shot under me, yet escaped unhurt, although death was leveling my companions on every side of me. An old Indian chief recounted fifteen years later that he had been with the French in that battle. “I am a chief and ruler over my tribes. My influence extends to the waters of the great lakes . 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 forests that I first beheld this chief {Washington}. 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 alone exposed. Quick, let your aim be certain, and he dies. Our rifles were leveled, rifles which, but for you, knew not how to miss – twas all in vain, a power mightier far than we, shielded you. Seeing you were under the special guardianship of the Great Spirit, we immediately ceased firing on you. 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 {pointing at Washington}, and guides his destiny – he will become chief of nations, and a people yet unborn will hail him as the founder of a mighty empire. I come to pay homage to the man who is a particular favorite of Heaven, and who can never die in battle.” 

Why was this story removed from school textbooks in the USA?  As incredible a story as it may seem, the Indian chief’s prophecy was true and of course it demonstrates the outcome of having faith in God – for a person, even a country. This nation chose to inscribe the phrase “In God We Trust” on their money. By doing so they were proclaiming to the world that their trust was not in their money, not in the power that comes from having money – but in God. Sadly whilst the phrase is still on their money God is no longer a reality in most peoples lives. Since the Bible and prayer have also been taken out of American schools is it a coincidence that it is a nation in decline?

The world does not acknowledge it but God is still operating in peoples lives today to change their destinies and those of nations.
