AS WE TURN TONIGHT TO OUR SUBJECT help from Celestial planes, to the condition of the kingdom of God, to the nations, which sets the kingdom apart as the kingdom of God. Certainly there has been a condition which has developed in the last 35 years which would seem almost impossible to the average student of prophecy except that he has witnessed it, and watched it come to pass.
For here we, a great nation and a powerful nation dedicated to the cause of carrying the Gospel of the kingdom to the ends of the earth, to lift up the standards of God and to carry forward the purposes of the Most High, we were a nation which under our operations had extended ourselves from one post to another. We had developed the patterns of raw materials and we were providing for the people. And as for the percentage of taxes which it took to run this nation, it was a very small part of our livelihood and of our income. In fact in this process the structure of the kingdom of God was growing, growing, growing. And it seemed that the end of the age was not so close at hand as people would have advocated it to be.
