A Recommendation

an-open-letter.orgIn preparing my posts about New Jerusalem through the past 20 months, one thing stood out strongly: New Jerusalem is the consummation of all the positive things in the Bible. An example of this is the recent series looking at the garden of Eden and New Jerusalem.

In writing this blog, unless I give a specific quote, the words are mine. On the other hand, my words reflect the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. I listened to Witness Lee’s speaking for many years and have been reading, and continue to read, their writings.

In listening and reading, I received much enlightenment concerning God’s eternal purpose, the very many aspects of the person and work of Christ, the Bible as the source of light and life, the spiritual realities contained within the Old Testament types and New Testament parables, and the Christian life.

Among all the publications of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, the one I use most for this blog is the The Holy Bible, Recovery Version, especially the New Testament and its footnotes and cross-references. I appreciate the simplicity of accessing this online.

Whether you are familiar with Witness Lee or not, I encourage you to look at the website “An Open Letter from the Local Churches and Living Stream Ministry concerning the Teachings of Witness Lee” – online. This website contains an affirmation of the common Christian faith; a rich resources section covering crucial topics related to the Christian Faith such as the Trinity, the Person of Christ, and the New Jerusalem; and a brief presentation of the Lord’s recovery.

At this website, you can also read the testimonies of respected theologians, scholars, and other well-known Christians concerning their experiences with the local churches and the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee.

I pray that the Lord will reveal Himself more to you and supply you through your visit to this website.

  1. Watchman Nee/Lee came under a considerable amount of flack years ago. Much of the flack stems from cultural difference, and things “missed in translation. I appreciate the Recovery Bible I don’t agree with all of its notes, but the translation is comparable to the NASB.


    • Eric, thanks for reading the post and commenting, also for seeing past the flack and considering the RecV. If some of the notes are a help to you, we thank the Lord.


  2. This site you refer to is very helpful and includes a clear presentation of the common faith that we hold as Christians. Thanks for sharing


    • John-Paul, glad the site was beneficial to you. In their section on the faith I like their work to display verse text in the lower right when the cursor hovers over a verse reference.
