“Some people are job-dropping full-timers and some are job-keeping full-timers. Every one of us should live entirely for the Lord’s interests on this earth. Although you have a job, you are still working for the Lord. This way depends on your taking what you have received from your job, aside from amply supplying the needs of your family, and offering it entirely to the Lord to meet the needs of the work and of the full-timers. This is extremely important and has a bearing on the speed of the advance and spread of the Lord’s recovery.” (Witness Lee, Rising Up to Preach the Gospel)
The Lord’s move in His recovery is a divine stream which has flowed from China to the United States and is now making its way back to Jerusalem via Europe in preparation for His return. As those in His recovery today, the Lord requires our utmost cooperation. Otherwise, He will have to seek another channel for His move – another people who will heed His call. For this, we need to have the realization of where we are in history and the current world situation as it relates to the Lord’s move. The Lord’s move to Europe is not merely another burden in the Lord’s recovery. It is the Lord’s ultimate move, a move that will bring in the turning of the age and the Lord’s return.
It is with this in view that the Boston Extension training was established in 2011 in order to send trained young people to serve in Europe. Under the Lord’s blessing, a number have already graduated from this training and many more will graduate this coming year. However, of all those who are willing and available to go to Europe immediately, only a few were able to go because of the lack of support.
As working saints or the backbone of the Lord’s recovery, we need to bear the weight of this burden for the Lord’s move. For example, if we all eat out a few less times a month or buy a few less specialty coffees, the money saved could meet this need. We must consider our ways concerning how we care for our own house and for God’s house (Haggai 1:4-5). The Lord’s recovery is not without the funds to support the Lord’s move, but it may be without the hearts that give way for the funds to flow. May the Lord recover a culture among this generation of regular giving that is not only for the churches’ needs but also for His move to close this age.
