Like Dave Pack, Meredith Also Promises His Followers that "Every Nation on Earth, Not just a Few" will Hear LCG's Witness

Recently Banned by HWA has been noting how Dave Pack has been promising his followers that the work of RCG will soon greatly expand.
The Real Truth magazine subscription list will begin sprinting toward multiple millions....Of course, the number of magazines distributed in the Newsstand Distribution Program will skyrocket because of much greater funding.

Powerful Public Bible Lectures will be held worldwide. Our websites will become the biggest thing in religion online that the world has ever seen. Internet advertising will multiply to awesome proportion. So will large newspaper ads. The list of how the Work will grow bigger could go on and on.
Pack is just like the advertizer who always says "and more..." at the end of his product description.

These words instantly reminded me of how Meredith would claim to his members that LCG is just about to witness astounding and drastic growth. He promises his followers that soon the whole world will be listening in rapt attention to what Meredith and LCG has to say about true religion, the future, society, etc.

One can see this in his booklet, Fourteen Signs Announcing Christ's Return. This is seen under sign eight: 'The Gospel of the Kingdom Preached to All Nations'. This is still posted in LCG's website.
The great “Olivet prophecy” of Jesus Christ is pivotal in understanding future events. In Matthew 24:3, Jesus was asked by the disciples, “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” As we have seen, Jesus first warned them about false prophets, wars and rumors of wars leading to world war, famines, disease epidemics and earthquakes, and said, “All these are the beginning of sorrows” (v. 8).

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation” (v. 9). The coming Great Tribulation will affect the Church as well as national Israel. “And [they will] kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.” This verse is quite significant because it says, in effect, that God’s true Church and Work will be known by all nations. People will not hate it unless they know about it, will they? They will hate the true Work of God because they will hate its message....
Every nation on earth, not just a few, will hear about this...(Source.)
Note that Meredith uses the future tense. This is supposed to happen in the future. Some COGs and individual Armstrongites teach that HWA already witnessed to the world and therefore say there is no need for them to tell the world about Armstrongism. Meredith is not from that school of thought.

Has this great expansion of 'the work,' spreading Armstrongite heresies, occurred? Obviously not.

We can count this as yet another false prophecy Meredith continues to spread.
