In Ecclesiastes the object that is being sought after is a wrong one, and the way is the wrong way. The result is vanity of vanities.

He also expressed concern about increasing authoritarianism in the Exclusive Brethren, and what he saw as the creeping concentration of power in the hands of James Taylor, Sr.
Matters came to a head when it became known that Nee had worshipped with non-Brethren Christians like T. Austin Sparks during a visit to the United Kingdom , and with non-Brethren missionaries during a United States visit in Nee received a letter dated 31 August , signed by leading Brethren, excommunicating him and his movement. Their two families had been friends for three generations. This bothered him.
Eventually, after much struggling, Nee felt he needed to give up on their relationship. Ten years later, after finishing her university education, Charity became a Christian.
She began attending church meetings in Shanghai in Charity cared for Nee in his frequent illness and was the only visitor Nee was permitted during his imprisonment.
They had no children. All that I have written has one aim, which is that the reader will, in the new creation, give himself wholly to God and become a useful person in His hands.
Now I whole-heartedly commit my writings, my readers and myself to God, who preserves men for ever, and hope that His Spirit will guide me into all His truths. Meetings for the Overcomer: God opened my eyes to the necessity of raising up in churches at various places, a number of people who are victorious to be His witnesses Therefore once every year a meeting for the victorious was held in which I faithfully proclaimed the messages which God has revealed to me.
Building up Local Churches: When the Lord called me to serve Him, the prime object was not for me to hold revival meetings so that people may hear more Scriptural doctrines nor for me to become a great evangelist. The Lord revealed to me that He wanted to build up local churches in other localities to manifest Himself, to bear testimony of unity on the ground of local churches so that each saint may perform his duty in the Church and live the Church life.
God wants not merely individual pursuit of victory or spirituality but a corporate, glorious Church presented to Himself.
Youth Training: If the return of the Lord be delayed, it will be necessary to raise up a number of youths to continue the testimony and work for the next generation My idea is not to establish a seminary or a Bible institute but to have the young people live a corporate life and practice spiritual life, that is, receive training for the purpose of edification and to learn to read the Scripture and to pray in order to build up good character. On the negative side, to learn how to deal with sin, the world, the flesh, natural life, and so on.
At a suitable time they are to return to their respective churches to be tempered together with other saints to serve the Lord in the Church In the future my personal burden and work will generally comprise these four aspects. May all the glory be to the Lord.
Nee began to write and publish at a very early age. In , he began to publish the magazine The Present Testimony, and in , he started another magazine entitled The Christian.
At age 21, Nee established the first "local church" in Sitiawan, Malaysia while visiting his mother, who had moved there from China. In , Nee established up another local church in Shanghai, which became the center of his work in China. By , Nee's practice of meeting as local churches spread throughout China, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.
He maintained this pattern until his imprisonment. According to Nee, this was a turning point for him in his ministry. He said, "My Christian life took a big turn from doctrines and knowledge to a living person, Christ, who is God's centrality and universality. These talks were eventually published in the book The Assembly Life.
According to Nee, this was the second turn in his ministry. Nee recounted, "My first turn was to know Christ, and my second turn was to know His Body. To know Christ is only half of what the believers need. The believers also must know the Body of Christ. Christ is the head, and He is also the Body. Although acquiescing to family pressure, Nee also saw this as an opportunity to support his many co-workers who were suffering great poverty and hardship during the Second World War.
Nee took over full management of the factory, reorganized it, and began to employ many local church members from Shanghai. At this time, some of the elders from the church in Shanghai questioned Nee's involvement in business, causing Nee to suspend his ministry in Shortly afterward, the church in Shanghai stopped meeting altogether. There, he delivered a series of messages on Revelation 2 and 3 published as The Orthodoxy of the Church as well as messages on the Song of Songs.
Nee downloadd twelve bungalows at Kuliang to hold trainings for his co-workers in the Christian work. By April , a revival was brought to the church in Shanghai, and Nee resumed his ministry there. When he returned, Nee handed his pharmaceutical factory over to the Christian work as an offering to God, influencing many others to hand over their possessions to the work.
Within a short time, the church in Shanghai grew to over members. Through intensive propaganda campaigns and threats of imprisonment, believers were influenced to accuse one another.
Nee was also "re-educated". On January 11, , there was a nationwide sweep targeting the co-workers and elders in the local churches. Some died in labor camps , while others faced long prison sentences. On January 18, , the Religious Affairs Bureau began twelve days of accusation meetings at the church assembly hall on Nanyang Road in Shanghai, in which many accusations were brought against Nee in large accusation meetings.
He was sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment with reform by labor.
Initially, he was detained at Tilanqiao Prison in Shanghai but was later moved to other locations. Only his wife, Charity, was allowed to visit him. On January 29, , Public Security took over the Nanyang Road building, and many of Nee's co-workers were arrested, put into isolation, and forced to repudiate Watchman Nee. Some co-workers joined in the accusation of Watchman Nee while others, such as Peace Wang, Ruth Lee, and Yu Chenghua remained silent and were punished with life imprisonment.
Following this, mass accusation meetings were held across the country to condemn the "anti-revolutionary sect of Watchman Nee".Publications[ edit ] In addition to speaking frequently before many audiences, Watchman Nee authored various books, articles, newsletters, and hymns. That truth is—"Christ is the Son of God who died for the redemption of sinners and resurrected after three days.
Let them do this joyfully, and not sadly, for that would be of no advantage to you.
