“What Did Jesus Say To George Washington?”

Thesis: George Washington’s motto’s were impressed upon Him by the Lord and they were “Deeds, not words”, and “For God and my Country”.


Hebrews 13:7,8

7Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Titus 3:1

1Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.

I Timothy 2:1-4

1I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Romans 13:1-7

1Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.

6This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Matthew 28:18

18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Video Clip on George Washington “America’s Godly Heritage” By David Barton


Last Monday was President’s Day a day to honor and remember our former presidents. About 6 months ago I did a sermon about Abraham Lincoln and today I want to focus on our first president George Washington.

I was disturbed a time back when I heard a lie being promoted in the educational realm and in the media. People where saying that George Washington was a Deist - which means a person who believes in God only through man’s natural reasoning and does not believe in Divine Revelation or the Divine authority of the Bible. A deist believes that God is not involved in the world today, he may have created it but that is it. There is no divine guidance or involvement in our lives. He is a god who is absent from this earth and unconcerned about the fate of mankind.
