The following is an excerpt from The Spiritual Man by Watchman Nee (1968).
From the section “In Battling the enemy”
“…Spiritual warfare accordingly demands an attitude of total death to feeling and an absolute trust in GOD. Only a person with this attitude can bear up alone and not seek companions or man’s approval in fighting the enemy. Only this caliber of Christian can proceed under all sorts of anguished feelings. He cares not at all for his life nor about death but only cares for the leading of GOD. He indulges no personal interest, desire or longing. He has offered himself to death already and then lives exclusively for GOD. He neither blames nor misunderstands Him because he considers all His ways to be loving. This is the class of person who is able to fill the breach. Though he may appear to be deserted by GOD and forgotten by men, yet he mans his battle station. He is a prayer warrior. He overcomes satan.”
The Spiritual Man by Watchman Nee (1968) is in three (3) volumes of 207, 256 and 231 pages, respectively. For us who are serious to understand spiritual dynamics between our spirit men and Jesus’ Holy Spirit, this book is irrefutably indispensable. Nee intensely analyzes The Word in a beautiful way.
