    The importance of submission and authority

    This book is a gripping read of the importance of understanding submission within the Heavenly Kingdom paradigm. The truth is we humans really do not want to submit to anyone or be held accountable for our actions. However, there is a God who examines the heart of everything we do. <BR/><BR/>Watchman Nee emphasizes the importance of submitting to God's authority and His delegated authority. Jesus walked in perfect obedience, although he was God in the flesh. He submitted to the Father's will and stripped Himself of His deity. <BR/><BR/>Nee also eloquently examines examples of rebellion. He emphasizes the extreme ramifications of operating in rebellion (or offering strange fire), which usually equated to death either physically or spiritually. <BR/><BR/>Learning to submit is especially important if one desires to lead. Those who are in leadership positions are held to a much higher standard in God's eyes so learning to submit is pivotal to success.

    Not Communism but the Word of God

    I also disagree with the reviewer who seems to think that the book is strictly based on Watchman Nee's experience in China. I believe that his book was based on his experience with the Almighty. If anyone reads this book they can clearly see for themselves it's foundation is from the Bible. I believe that Wathman heard straight from God's throne while in China for him to have obtained the revelation of the Bible enough to write about it. Thank God for his revelation!
