Healing

The most amazing verses for healing any sickness were found in the depth of the Scriptures which brought Watchman Nee out of sickness that had him on the verge of death (see page 100-102, The Life that Wins, CFP). Read the whole chapter on Testing of Faith, 95-107. It's awesome!

5 times does Jesus say we can move a mountain with faith (see Matt. 17.20, 21.21; Mark 11.23; 1 Cor. 13.2).

I will always remember these verses and how to apply them in such a miraculous way - Romans 8.11, Jonah 2.8, and John 17.17b.

Rom. 8.11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Jonah 2.8 They that regard lying vanities Forsake their own mercy.

John 17.17b thy word is truth.

Nee fully expected because of his illness that he would not write another book after The Spiritual Man.

After 176 days in bed, Nee was diagnosed to have 3 or 4 days left to live. While he received the prayers of many, the verse that saved his life, spoken to him by a sister, was Psalm 6.5,

Psa 6:1   [[To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.]] O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
Psa 6:2   Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I [am] weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
Psa 6:3   My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
Psa 6:4   Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
Psa 6:5   For in death [there is] no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
Psa 6:6   I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
Psa 6:7   Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
Psa 6:8   Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
Psa 6:9   The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
Psa 6:10   Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return [and] be ashamed suddenly.

Then Nee was led to Romans 1.17, "the righteous shall live by faith," and as he stood up, 2 Cor. 1.24 was shown to him, "in faith ye stand fast," and then he walked, when God revealed to Him, 2 Cr 5.7, "For we walk by faith." After this, he never had another problem with illness.

Before his illness, Nee said he wanted to write a 100 books of commentary on the Bible. After his recovery, he knew God no longer wanted this, but wanted him to express the Word in the simplest most effective way possible to reach the spirit, show how to live the living way of life and to assist God's children in their spiritual life and walk. The second thing God wanted him to do was conduct overcomer conferences. Third, God wanted him to set up local assemblies. And four, to train young people.
