성장하고 성숙한 사람들은 하나님 자신과 하나님의 백성들을 관심합니다.
또 교파와 분열로 부터 지방교회안으로 들어 왔지만 지방교회가 종착지가 아니고 목적지가 아닙니다.
지방교회는 과정이고 그 목표는 한 몸입니다.
사탄을 처리하는 것이 그분의 목표요 목적입니다.
THE LORD’S MOVE IN EUROPE, DECEMBER, 2014
In 1973 Brother Lee spoke regarding the direction of the Lord’s move for His return: “I believe that in the coming years the Lord will spread the church life to England, Germany, France, and Italy. Furthermore, I believe that one day there will be a church in Rome and even in Jerusalem, where the church life began more than nineteen centuries ago. Acts 1:9-12 tells us that Christ ascended from the Mount of Olives, and Zechariah 14:4 reveals that Christ will return also to the Mount of Olives. In the same principle, the Lord began His church in Jerusalem and, I believe, will send the recovery of His church back to Jerusalem.
“The United States is not the goal; it is a stepping-stone for the spread of the
recovery to Europe and eventually to Jerusalem. The Lord began from Jerusalem and then spread the church to Greece and Italy. I believe that He will also go back to Jerusalem by way of Italy and Greece. I long for there to be a church in Jerusalem waiting for the Lord Jesus when He returns.” (Life-Study of Ephesians, pp. 666-668)
We praise the Lord that in the years since, there is now a church life in England, Germany, France, Italy, and many more countries throughout Europe. There is also a church life in Israel. Surely the Lord is preparing for His imminent return. Increase in Europe
In the past fifteen years, the Lord has gained a significant increase throughout Europe:
? In 2000, there were 32 lampstands in 12 countries. There were approximately 750 saints in
the Lord’s recovery throughout Europe.
? Now in 2014, there are 85 lampstands in 23 countries. There are now approximately 3,000 saints in the Lord’s recovery throughout Europe.
A large part of this increase is due to the radio broadcasts in London and Spain, the work on the campuses in the leading cities, and the distribution throughout much of Europe of the free Recovery Version of the New Testament and of the free publications available through Rhema.
