How are we freed from the law of death?
As I have said many times, apart from the Bible, there is no man whom has imparted to me as much spiritual revelation as Watchman Nee.
In his life-changing book, “The Normal Christian Life,” Nee clarifies another blockbuster revelation.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
I thought that I understood what the law of sin and death is, but realized that it was incomplete regarding the part about death.
I saw death as corrupting and decaying and thought that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus counteracted it.
That is correct…
However, according to Nee, I never saw death as the greatest weakness and feebleness in the world.
What is dead, or near to it, has little power, ability or energy.
It is impotent and feeble.
In fact, one of the main translations for sickness in the New Testament is feebleness, weakness and impotency.
What is sick is weak.
It is the “I can’t” syndrome, which runs rampant in the sinful nature.
My life has been plagued with weakness, inability, fear and impotency.
One reason why we don’t get healed is that our minds are still stuck in the “I cant” mentality of impotency and weakness.
I realized that the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of “I can’t”, weakness, inability, feebleness, and impotency.
Here is the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus at work.
Note, the “I can” instead.
Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Yesterday, the missing link was revealed thanks to my spiritual father, Watchman Nee.
The law of the Spirit of Life is not in you and me, it is in Christ Jesus.
This means that you must allow Christ Jesus to live His life in you, which is another teaching for another day.
