Pray that the Lord would preserve the United States so that He may fully use this country for His recovery and for the spreading of His recovery (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.
Since World War II, the United States has been the heart of the populated world. Its climate is temperate. It lies between two great oceans, which are like the wings of an eagle.
Whatever the United States does, the entire world follows. This is true financially, industrially, scientifically, politically, militarily, religiously, scripturally, and spiritually. Even in language, it is American English, not British, which prevails.
Why has God ordained this? It is for His move on earth to carry out His recovery. The Roman Empire was for the gospel. Germany was for the Reformation. Britain was for the spreading of the gospel and of the truth. Now the United States has become the center for the recovery. From here it can spread to all the continents in a worldwide language. Wherever we are from, we must appreciate America. God will use America to spread His recovery so that the Lord may return. (CWWL, 1981, vol. 1, “The World Situation and God’s Move,” p. 296)
Israel has been re-formed. Jerusalem is in Israeli hands. Though in many aspects Israel is ready for the Lord’s coming back, the church is not…The situation in the world and the condition of Christianity are like puzzle pieces. If you fit them together, you will realize that the Lord’s move today is the recovery. He will use this last world situation, that is, the supremacy of the United States, for the spreading of the recovery. No other country is so central, so convenient, and so prevailing as the United States. The U.S.A. is so good for the Lord’s recovery and so good for the spreading of the recovery. (CWWL, 1981, vol. 1, “The World Situation and God’s Move,” p. 335)
