“The Minister of the Age” was a phrase virtually unknown until after Brother Lee’s departure. At least this was the case among English-speaking saints in the Lord’s recovery. It is true that Brother Lee ministered on this topic in Chinese in Taiwan in March 1986. Yet (for whatever reason) these messages remained unpublished in English for more than a decade. It was only after Brother Lee’s passing in 1997, that the topic, ‘The Minister of the Age,’ appeared in print, first in the
inaugural issues of The Ministry magazine and subsequently in 2003 as the book, The Vision of the Age. That year this became a ‘hot topic’ of the “blended brothers’” spoken and printed messages. Hence, it is paradoxically true that this subject’s prominence owes more to the “blended co-workers” than to Brother Lee’s own active ministry.
