“February 21, 1880, was The War Cry issue that quoted Catherine Booth at the farewell of Evans, Coleman, Westbrook, Shaw, Price, Pearson, Morris, and Railton to invade the USA, giving what might be seen as an Acts 1:8 foundational prophecy for The Salvation Army (which the Barmy Army has to read every six months or so, it seems – but it is important and good to refresh…):

“The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and that He shall reign, whose right it is, from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement is to inaugurate the great final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Catherine Booth, in John Rhemick. A NEW PEOPLE OF GOD. p202,203)

Yahoo! The ‘question of time’ bit might not mean only waiting until some day in the future, but in investing time (represents also energy, resources, etc.) to accomplish the mission. God help us”

Just think – those words were spoken as reinforcements were being sent to America…to follow Eliza Shirley…….wow
