The Living Stream version really takes away from the original translation that I have. The prefaces are different. The wording is different; but the spirit of it is different. My spirit is troubled. There are many instances I could quote here but in Volume 3 the heaviest, deepest teachings regarding Satan are covered.
Nee never teaches that believers can be possessed and never uses this wording but the Living Stream version says believers can be possessed by Satan. The new version is so very different from the CFP version that I had a hard time matching up sentences to interpret the differences.
Steve, I did not know this and I will take a look at it. I read the Spiritual Man from a book originally, and was delighted to find an online copy at Living Streams. However, I did not proof read the two for discrepancies.
Thank you for pointing this out. All Original writtings of Nee were given by him to his closest cooperator Witnes Lee. Nee only trusted Lee to faitfully continue in revelation of the Scriptures Others had their ambitions before building of the Body of Christ as paul commanded It is impossible to see and receive the FULL benefit of nees ministry without being connected with those who continue in that revelation of scriptures.
Revelation and exlerience of Christ will grow as we accept the Body of believers. It has been years since I have read his works, so I can not say off the top of my head. Only that I remember a sense of frustration in his later writings in his inability to control others. You err in your thinking. The understanding of followers is not the same as the originator of the teaching. Look at what Calvin believed in his Institutes, then consider how his followers distilled his teaching at the synod of Dort with their now famous TULIP.
Likewise, Peter and the other apostles walked with Christ for 3 years, yet Christ had to raise a man who did not participate in his incarnate teaching, Paul, to explain further to Peter what Jesus actually meant.

His life and actions say differently than your comment.. January 26, at 9: Even the grass of others will be dried up by us. When this happens, either God is wrong or we are wrong.
God cannot be wrong, so it must be we who are wrong. Verse 26 of chapter three says, "God, having raised up His Servant, has sent Him to bless you in turning each of you away from your wicked deeds.
The Lord Jesus' accomplishment is more than able to deliver us from sin. One basic experience of a Christian should be deliverance from sin. As Christians, we should at least overcome the known sins. We may not overcome the sins that we do not know about. But we should overcome by the Lord all the sins that we know about. We may have many besetting sins that have plagued us for years. By the power of the Lord, we should overcome all these sins.
This is the biblical standard. A man should only be occasionally overtaken by offenses. But our experience is that we only occasionally overcome. How abnormal is our experience! Romans says, "What then shall we say?
Should we continue in sin that grace may abound? Absolutely not! We who have died to sin, how shall we still live in it? No one who has believed in the Lord Jesus and has become a Christian should live in sin any longer.
But how do we know that we are dead to sin?
The next verse provides the answer. Verse 3 says, "Or are you ignorant that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? When a person is baptized, he becomes dead in Christ Jesus. Verse 4 says, "We have been buried therefore with Him through baptism into His death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so also we might walk in newness of life.
Everyone who is baptized should walk in newness of life. This is not a verse for some special Christians; it is for Christians who are saved and baptized. We all have been baptized; therefore, we all should walk in newness of life.
This is the experience that God has ordained for every Christian. Are we those who walk in newness of life? Romans says, "For sin will not lord it over you, for you are not under the law but under grace.
Brothers and sisters, who is not under the law but under grace? Is Andrew Murray the only one? Are Paul, Peter, or John the only ones? Or are all those who have believed not under the law but under grace?
How many of you sitting here today are under grace? Thank and praise our God, we are all under grace! None of us is under the law. However, there is another sentence prior to this sentence: "Sin will not lord it over you.
Thank and praise Him that victory is not only the experience of some special Christians. Thank and praise God that victory is the experience of ordinary Christians. Thank and praise Him that every saved Christian is under grace. When I was first saved, I saw this verse and treasured it very much. I realized that I had experienced many victories and had overcome many sins. I realized that God had graced me.
But there was still one sin which lorded it over me. In fact, a few sins always came back to visit me. I had overcome several sins, but a few other sins often came back to visit me.
This was like my experience with a brother one day. I met him on the street and nodded to him. Then I went into a shop to download something. When I came out, I met him coming my way, and I nodded to him again. Then I went into a second store and bought something else. When I came out, I met him yet again and nodded to him once more.
When I turned to the next street, I met him and nodded to him again. I turned on to a second street and met him once again and nodded to him yet another time. In all I met and nodded to him five times that day.
We encounter sins the same way that I encountered this brother. It seems that sin purposely tries to meet us. We are always running into it; it seems that it is constantly following us. Temper seems to follow some all the time. Pride and jealousy seem to follow others all the time. Laziness seems to follow one, and lies seem to follow another.
One finds himself always having an unforgiving spirit while another is plagued continually by base desires or selfishness. Some find unclean thoughts following them all the time, while others find unclean lusts following them all the time. Everyone seems to have at least one sin which follows him all the time. I had a few sins which continually plagued me.
I had to admit that sin lorded it over me! God says that sin will not lord it over me, but I had to confess that something was wrong with me. I had to admit that the mistake was in me and not in God's Word. Brothers and sisters, if we are living a defeated life, we should know that this is not what God ordained for us.
We have to know that it is not God's intention for sin to lord it over us. His Word says that sin will not lord it over us! Romans says, "There is now then no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. About twenty years ago someone discovered some ancient manuscripts and found that there were two meanings to this word.
One is used in a civil context and the other in a legal context. According to its civil application, it can be translated "impotence. But for whom is this verse written? Is it only for John Wesley?
Is it only for Martin Luther or for Hudson Taylor? What does the Bible say? It says, "There is now then no impotence to those who are in Christ Jesus. They are Christians. Every Christian is a person who is in Christ Jesus, and every one of them is no longer impotent. Verse 2 says, "For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death. Every Christian should be delivered from the law of sin and of death. What is the meaning of being impotent?
According to Romans 7, it means doing what one hates and not practicing what one wills. It is finding that "to will is present with me, but to work out the good is not.
The history of many Christians is one of constant resolutions and constant breaking of resolutions. They continually resolve to do something and continually fail. But thank and praise the Lord, God's Word says that no Christian is impotent any longer. What is a law? It is something that happens again and again.
With a law, the same action produces the same result under whatever circumstances the action is performed. A law is a steady phenomenon; it is a constant tendency, a condition that continues to come back. For example, there is the force of gravity. Whenever an object is dropped, gravity will draw it downward. This gravitational force is a law. With some people, losing their temper is a law.
They may hold back once or twice, but they are provoked the third time. By the fourth time, they lose their temper. This happens to one brother after another. One may hold back at the beginning, but eventually his temper breaks out.
Every time a temptation comes, the same result occurs. We observe that the same is true with the matter of pride. When others say one good word about you, you may not be moved. But when they say a second good word about you, your expression immediately changes and your face shines. A law is anything that gives the same result when it goes through the same steps. Sin has become a law for us. Many brothers are agreeable in some things, but they are provoked as soon as they are stirred up in other things.
They can overcome many things, but as soon as they encounter certain other things, they are provoked. Brothers and sisters, it does not take special Christians to overcome the law of sin. No Christian has to remain impotent. Every Christian can be delivered from the law of sin. All of the above verses are facts; they are not commands.
Every Christian should have these experiences. Yet our experience does not quite match God's Word. How sad this is! Shall tribulation or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?
This should be the Christian experience. But in our case, we do not need tribulation or swords to come upon us; as soon as someone gives us a bad look, we lose the love of Christ. However, Paul said that he more than conquered in all these things. This should be the common experience of all Christians. Victory is the normal experience of a Christian; defeat should be the abnormal experience. According to God's ordination, every Christian should more than conquer.
Whether we encounter tribulation, anguish, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, or sword, we should not only conquer it but more than conquer it! It does not matter whether there are difficulties. Outsiders may think that we Christians have gone mad. Hallelujah, others can say that we are mad. We are not concerned about these things any longer, and we have more than conquered them because of the love of Christ.
Thank and praise the Lord, this should be the experience of a Christian; it is the experience that God has ordained for us. But what is our actual experience? The Bible has not kept these experiences from us, but we often do not find the way to enter such a life.
Before tribulation even comes in abundance, we are already shouting, "I need patience! I am suffering! Second Corinthians says, "But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in the Christ and manifests the savor of the knowledge of Him through us in every place.
It is not one that overcomes in the morning and is defeated in the afternoon. A Christian life is one that overcomes all the time. If you encounter a temptation today and you overcome it, you should not be so happy about it that you can hardly sleep at night.
Only the experience of not overcoming should be uncommon. Overcoming should be common and frequent. A Life with the Ability to Do Good Ephesians says, "For we are His masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand in order that we would walk in them.
In the preceding verses, it says that we are saved by grace. Here it says that we are His masterpiece, created for good works which God has prepared beforehand for us to walk in. This is not a special experience for some Christians; rather, it should be the common experience of every saved Christian.
God saves us in order that we may do good. Brothers and sisters, are our good works according to God's ordination, or are we always complaining while we are doing good? Suppose you are mopping the floor. While you are mopping, you may complain that only one or two people are helping and that others are not helping.
This will either result in boasting or murmuring. This is not doing good. Every good work of a Christian should be accompanied by an overflow of joy; we should not be stingy, boastful, or selfish, but generous and ready to give to others.
It would be a pity if only the best Christians could do good. God's ordination is that doing good should be the common experience of every Christian.
A Life Filled with Light John says, "Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall by no means walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Those who can stay away from darkness and who can walk in the light of life are not special Christians. Every Christian who follows Christ should not walk in darkness and should have the light of life.
A Christian who is full of light is nothing more than a normal Christian, while a Christian who does not have the light is an abnormal Christian.
Since he said "sanctify you wholly," there must be the possibility of being sanctified wholly. It is possible to find no fault in a Christian. God will sanctify us wholly, and He will preserve us complete and without blame.
We are speaking of the Lord's provision for a Christian. The Lord's salvation has given every Christian the power to fully overcome sin, to be fully delivered from the bondage of sin, to trample sin underfoot, and to have unhindered fellowship with God. This is the life that the Lord has ordained for us. This is not merely a theory but a fact, because this is the Lord's provision. If your experience is different from the Bible, you have not received full salvation yet.
It is a fact that you are saved, but you have not received full salvation yet. Today I will announce a tiding to you: The Lord's accomplishment on the cross has not only delivered you from the judgment of sin but also freed you from the pain of sin. He has prepared a full salvation so that you do not have to remain in your initial salvation but can daily experience victory while living on earth. What is victory?
Victory is the making up of what is lacking in our salvation experience. It is true that many are saved, but they lacked something at the time of their salvation. God has saved us and graced us. He has no intention that we live a wandering life on earth.
He wants us to experience a full deliverance. We need a make-up lesson today because we were not properly saved when we believed. We need the overcoming experience to make up for what was lacking in the past. Brothers and sisters, has God saved us only to find us repeatedly sinning and regretting? Since God's Son has died for us, should we still sin?
Before we were saved, we were bound to sin. Now that we are saved, are we still bound to sin?
Before we were saved, sin reigned. Now that we are saved, should sin still reign? Sin is diametrically opposed to God. We should not allow a trace of sin to remain in us. Will God do something contrary to Himself? Certainly not! How evil sin is! A sin is a sin, whether it is a dispositional sin, a sin of weakness, a sin in the body, or a sin in the mind.
Let us say to the Lord, "Thank and praise You; Your accomplishment on the cross has not only delivered me from the punishment of sin but also saved me from the power of sin. May the Lord show us the need to overcome. Brothers and sisters, if our experience does not match the Scripture, it means that we need to overcome.
May He shine on us and expose us.
We should not deceive ourselves by saying that it is inevitable for a Christian to sin. No word will hurt the Lord's heart more deeply than this. Brothers and sisters, do we know what the cross has done? Do we think that the Lord went to the cross just for the sake of leaving us the way we are?
We should not lie. We should not boast that we can suppress or control ourselves. Suppressing and controlling ourselves is not victory. The Lord's victory completely crushes sin. Sin is under the Lord's feet! All of us who have not experienced a continual fellowship with the Lord and who have not experienced the sin-crushing power need to overcome.
May the Lord grace us with His blessings. In the Bible, victory is first mentioned in 1 Samuel , where it says that Victory will not lie nor repent. Indeed, victory is a person. A thing is not a person, and a matter is not a person, but the Victory of Israel is a person. Victory is not a thing or an experience. It is not a matter; it is a person.
We all know who this person is; He is Christ! In a previous message I told you that victory is not something from us. It is not our experience; it is a person! Victory is not a matter of what we are, but a matter of Christ living on our behalf. This is why the victory we have will not lie nor repent. Thank and praise the Lord that victory is a living person! In this message, we will go on to consider what victory is.
We need to consider the characteristics of the overcoming life. The Bible shows us many characteristics of the overcoming life.
We cannot enumerate all of them in this message. We will instead mention only five of them. Victory does not mean that one is changed, but rather that one is exchanged. We are very familiar with Galatians , which says, "I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith in the Son of God.
It means that our life is exchanged. Our life is no longer in the realm of "I"; it has nothing to do with us anymore. It is not an evil "I" being changed into a good "I," or a filthy "I" being changed into a clean "I. This is why we think that everything will be well if we do not lose our temper or if we have an intimate fellowship with God. We think that if we have these things, we will overcome.
But we have to remember that victory has nothing to do with us. We play no part in this victory. One brother once said to me in tears, "I cannot overcome. It is not His intention that your evil temper be changed to a good temper or that your stubbornness be changed to meekness.
