Watchman Nee - At the Prison (Must read blog)



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/04/WatchmanNee.jpg/220px-WatchmanNee.jpg

The Communist government imprisoned Watchman Nee on charges of defying the law by preaching the Gospel.

They did this in a stern way to prevent Nee from preaching the truth of the Word of God. By the time Nee was imprisoned there were countless number of believers and churches made through his relentless life and teachings on Christ.

The Communists couldn’t find any fault with him; yet they had him under arrest for the next twenty years.

Did this Deter the Man of God from doing what every Christian is called to do?....


In the Prison Nee started his next campaign for Christ.

 It was the beginning of a new era in the Chinese prison history. The Unthinkable and Unbelievable started rolling.

The Prison walls were imprinted with sounding scriptures.

Every moment Nee walked across the cells or the corridors Christ was preached.

Prisoners to the Crime they had committed became prisoners to Christ. Countless number of convicts came to Christ and the communists were enraged with the workmanship of Nee.

They strictly warned him to stop preaching; but the more they warned him; the more he grew firm in Christ.

Communists couldn’t find a way to stop Nee from preaching; so they decided to chop off his legs.

They devised a plan and chopped both his legs in an effort to make him silent. But the unthinkable happened; Nee started writing. He employed his hands and started passing the transcripts to the cell doors and the mission of Christ continued to expand.


This time... Nee was called and both his hands were chopped off..

With both his limbs lost for Christ .. Nee used his tongue to the fullest in proclaiming and praising God to the Work He was committed... And this time the communists trimmed his tongue.....

Their actions could hardly stop Watchman Nee to the Commitment of Christ and the Gospel....

This time... with nothing left to express or proclaim the Good News..
Nee was used by God in an amazing way....

Whenever someone crossed the cell doors of Nee; they would walk born again as they crossed...
You know what happened.....

Every time a person looked into Nee’s eyes; the Holy Spirit would convict the person of his sinful nature and the person would receive Christ that moment...

And seeing this..
 the Communists poured hot coal into his eyes and blinded Nee.....

And few years later after serving the Lord Nee went home to be with the King....

What an amazing Victory....

By the time Nee was taken dead.... the Prison doors were opened in the lives of many.....


Watchman Nee didn’t consider this life or his own body as anything but nothing for the cause of the proclamation of the Gospel...

In today’s Christianity we need to train people in proclaiming the Gospel; which should be natural for a born again Christian....
it’s really pathetic in seeing the current state of believers..

When will you rise up Oh So called believer !!! When will you Commit Yourself completely to Christ!!!!

Are you truly Born in Christ?.....
If so; it’s time to check our reflections....

Men and Women like Nee are Partakers of the heavenly family..... and Suffering is a Part of the Package in following Christ...

Are you ready to Suffer?...
Then come and join...... and God will bless you in all your sufferings in Christ....
