Pray that the Lord would preserve the United States so that He may fully use this country for His ultimate move so that His recovery may spread (Matt. 24:14; Acts 1:8).
Matt. 24:14—And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole inhabited earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Acts 1:8—But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
For the Lord to achieve His ultimate move He also needs the proper situation. If you consider the entire world today, you would have to say that the best place for the spreading of His recovery is the United States of America…
The best language for the spreading of the truth is American English. Within two weeks after a message is given, it can be sent to all the six major continents in a universally understood language by printed page, by audiotapes, and by videotapes…
Almost every part of the globe is being used, and natural resources are close to an end. Can humankind last another few centuries? Is there time for the Lord to raise up another world power after the United States? I do not believe so. It seems that the United States is the last power raised up by the Lord to match His recovery.
As this ultimate move of the Lord goes forward from here, there is the need for such a powerful country to keep the world at peace and to keep the way open. Now that we have planes like the 747s, we no longer need the Roman roads that were used in the early centuries for the spread of the gospel. But these 747s need a peaceful situation for the word of the Lord’s recovery to go out. If the peace is broken, the spread will be stopped. The Lord needs a country for this. The United States, instead of robbing other countries, has been a giver…
If your eyes are open, you will realize what an age and what a country you live in, what the Lord’s recovery is, and how the world situation is going on. The state of things today is for one thing—the Lord’s recovery. The world is going on for the spreading of the recovery, for the preparing of the bride, and for the lampstands to be raised up and shining in many countries. In this ultimate recovery what the Lord is regaining is not small teachings but big items, especially from the viewpoint of the central vision. This is the Lord’s ultimate recovery, and He has such a country to maintain the world situation so that His recovery may be spread.
