Item description for The Life That Wins by watchman nee...
Overview TRANSLATOR'S PREFACE The glory of the Lord is not only in His person, but also in His work. Though glory is His dwelling, He divests himself of glory and takes up a humble fashion as a man. He endures the shame of the cross for fallen mankind, and nowhere does His moral glory shine brighter than on the cross. By means of His finished work at Calvary, the Lord Jesus is able to bring many sons to glory (Heb. 2.10). It is His prayerful desire that we may behold His glory (see John 17.24). And "we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit" (2 Cor. 3.18).
In this present volume Watchman Nee interprets for us what is meant by the phrase, "from glory to glory." He begins with the name of Jehovah-the glorious name of God-and shows that man's only sin is falling short of God's glory. Yet God is so ready to forgive, although His forgiveness must be received by faith. He then cites the case of David and Mephibosheth to illustrate the mercy of God. The author further demonstrates the riches of God's grace by reviewing with us the salvation which comes through baptism, the food with which God provides His own, and a believer's value before God. By way of conclusion, He assures us of the love of Christ which is ever available to us and exhorts us to have the mind of Christ--which is indeed from glory to glory.

Throughout the nearly thirty years of his ministry, Watchman Nee was clearly manifested as a unique gift from the Lord to His Body for His move in this age. In 1952 he was imprisoned for his faith; he remained in prison until his death in 1972. His words remain an abundant source of spiritual revelation and supply to Christians throughout the world.

I thank and praise Our Lord that I got this book to read. Oct 22, 2005
Jesus said ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. It is the ultimate blessing to know the Truth. Our Lord said I'm the Truth. Yes this book says what that means. If you see this book please buy and read. You will know what I mean after reading it.
Mere words cannot suffice Dec 29, 2002
If you really want to be delivered from strongholds in your life, grow closer to God, understand what Col 3:3 means (for as far as this world is concerned, you hve died and your new, real life is hidden with Christ in God - Amplified version), if you have never really understood (with the heart, not the head) how to live the life God has commanded us to live then this is the book to read.
Do not be deceived though - I think of this book as a mirror. You cannot read this book and not see the stark, glaring image of yourself in it - and it is not a pretty sight - which is good - because when we look in the mirror we should be seeing Christ, not ourselves. There is so much in this book - but the best thing of all is that it is very practical, very applicable and very detailed yet in a step by step approach. Trust me, people - if there is no other book that you read, read this one. I have read about 12 other Watchman Nee books - by far this is has been the most impacting. Enjoy and be changed!
Victory is Christ. Apr 6, 2001
I would recommend this book to every Christian today. These words come from the life of a Chinese Christian leader who was dedicated to God by his mother and taught by the Lord. The Holy Spirit continues to work in significant ways underground in China today and this man was a vessel that the Lord was able to pour Himself from in the early and mid 20th century. The meaning of his words, I dare say, is nothing new at all. Jesus spoke of it when he said that "the man who loses his life for My sake will find it." Paul called it "living by faith" and spoke of it when he said that he had been crucified with Christ and no longer lived. John declared it when he spoke of "walking in the light" and "knowing Him." Every vessel of the Lord in the Bible pointed to our Redeemer. That He alone is victor, and what that means. That we can't, but He can, so Satan stands condemned (the witness of the Holy Spirit as Jesus said in John 16:8-11). This is what Watchman Nee does here. This is simply the Holy Spirit pointing to Himself. Nee lays out the lack in the experience of Christians in his time (very much the same today), then he speaks of what the Bible shows our experience really is in the Lord (just the Lord's life!). Finally, he speaks on the simple truth of Jesus as Lord of all and how to let Him be all victory through you. Because "it is finished". Is Jesus the victor in and through you? Or are you still doing and "reaching more victory" with time? Does Satan stand condemned in your life because He's fighting the Lord? We need not try to do anything. "For the LAW of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the LAW of sin and death." In speaking here, Watchman Nee reveals a deep problem within so much Christian view today. It is the same old problem of sin: living in unbelief as if we are the answer. Christ is Victor! And in these ripe times He will boldly live my life. His victory is in me!
total deliverance Apr 4, 2001
I've been in ministry for quite some time now. And I'm a huge fan of Jesus Christ, whom by the power of the Holy Ghost, used Watchman Nee in a mighty way. "ALL" of his books, I have about 40 from his collection. All of what I've read has changed my entire ministry. Although in Nee's teachings, he indicates with the Word of God to back it up, that we're not changed, but EXCHANGED! I thank God, and I glean from all of his teachings, and preach them from the pulpit. Many are set free and awakened by the anointing and truth of his teachings. Some thought they knew it all until they've read Nee, and even preached Nee.
Glory to God in the Highest!
WOW Apr 24, 2000
Ok, I admit it. I'm a Watchman Nee fan. I've been a Christian for 15 years I have fairly decent library and nothing challenges me to think like Watchman Nee. This book challenges us to submit all to the Lordship of Jesus to have him rule over all our habits at moral failings at every level. It deals with the nuance's of Trusting God and leaning on Him, and yet working out our own Salvation with fear and trembling (Phillipians 2:12) We often think we are giving things to God but still we rely on ourselves. This book filled with the struggles and victory's of Christians just like you and me. Don't give up. Get this book.
