1 The beginning of the End Time of the Third Epoch began in China. When the Mukden Incident [the Manchurian Incident] broke out on September 18, 1931, the Republic of China was still in Mainland China. Today, sixty years later, the Republic of China has moved to an island.
2 The impact of the End Time of the Third Epoch is indeed too great. Suppose the Republic of China ceased to exist, no one would have paid special attention to the End Time of the Third Epoch.
3 To maintain the existence of the Republic of China, God, together with all the sages and saints from the Golden Tower, must secure Taiwan as the revival base. They set up a special case to protect Taiwan. This act tells us that the powers above give great attention to the Republic of China, and that is also why the center of the world-saving effort is located in Taiwan.
