Watchman Nee

Inspired by this post from Dan I decided to look up some Watchman Nee quotes.

This one was a doozy. I hope that my ending here on earth carries the same quiet, firm conviction as that posessed by this great man who died in a Chinese prison after 20 years of imprisonment for his faith:

Christ is the Son of God. He died to atone for men’s sin, and after three days rose again. This is the most important fact in the universe. I die believing in Christ.

– Watchman Nee – Note found under his pillow, in prison, at his death.

  1. “The reason why many Christians do not experience the power of the Spirit, though He actually dwells in their hearts, is that they lack reverence. And they lack reverence because they have not had their eyes opened of the fact of His presence. The fact is there, but they have not seen it. Why is it that some of God’s children live victorious lives while others are in a state of constant defeat? The difference is not accounted for by the presence or absence of the Spirit (for He dwells in the heart of every child of God) but by this, that some recognize His indwelling and others do not. True revelation of the fact of the Spirit’s indwelling will revolutionize the life of any Christian.”

  2. I love Watchman Nee!

    His stuff has impacted me in such a deep way, I don’t think I even understand it. I have read most of his books and have been so encouraged by his personal walk with Jesus. He was something special.

    I am a musician and WN has inspired many of my songs. I would be honored if you would check out my music on my site. All my music is free for download. Anyway, I just thought that I’d share.
