About This Set

In chapters 3 through 11 of his Gospel, John uses nine human cases to show that Christ as life can meet every need. The fifteen free eBooklets in this “Life’s Meeting Every Person’s Need” set present each of these cases, one by one.

“In all of these cases the Lord’s sufficiency in meeting man’s need is adequately proved. There is not one of man’s conditions that He cannot solve. There is not a need that He cannot meet. He is able! He is sufficient! He can deal with all our problems and supply all our needs! Praise His name.” Witness Lee, Life-study of John, pp. 94-95

    John chapter 1 reveals the two sections of eternity: eternity in the past and eternity in the future. In eternity past God planned and purposed, and in eternity future everything will have been accomplished. When does God accomplish His work, then? Between the two sections of eternity is the bridge of time, and it is here that God accomplishes all that He wants to accomplish. There are five particular things that God accomplishes on this bridge of time, and in this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee considers each of them in turn.

    The principle of all the Lord’s miraculous works is found in His first miracle, the turning of water into wine. The turning of water into wine signifies the turning of death into life. The human life with its natural enjoyment runs out and fails in death, but the Lord changes death into life by regenerating the believers with the eternal, divine life of God Himself and ushering them into the full enjoyment of this life in this age and in the ages to come.

    Many believers understand that we received the divine life when we believed in the Lord Jesus. However, few may realize what the goal of the life that we have received is. In this booklet compiled from the Life-study of John, Witness Lee shows that the cases recorded in John 2 concerning the changing of water into wine and the cleansing of the temple reveal that the divine life is for the building of God’s house, which is just the believers as the enlargement of the Body of Christ in resurrection.

In his Gospel, John presents nine cases that represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from the Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the first of these nine cases, which illustrates that even the moral have a need—life’s regenerating.

    Every human being has a need related to his or her condition. In his Gospel, John presents nine cases that represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee presents the second of these nine cases, the case of the Samaritan woman in John 4. The case of the Samaritan woman illustrates the second need of all mankind—the need for satisfaction. At some point, regardless of our success or attainments, we all have had the feeling of being empty, and this emptiness, this sense of dissatisfaction, corresponds to the Samaritan woman’s situation. However, just as Christ as life was able to meet the need of Nicodemus in John 3, so also is it able to meet the need presented in John 4. Thus, to the Samaritan woman, the Lord Jesus unveiled life’s satisfying.

In his Gospel, John uses nine cases to represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the third of these nine cases, that of the son of a royal official. The official’s son was dying, and through his situation, the Lord showed the third need of mankind—the need of life’s healing. The older we get, the more we are impressed with the shortness of life. Apparently we are living, but actually we all are in the process of dying. We are weak and fragile and in need of healing. But just as the official’s son received the healing in John 4, so also can we receive life’s healing today.

In his Gospel, John uses nine cases to represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the fourth of these nine cases, which exposes the vanity of religion and reveals that it is Christ as life who enlivens us. In this case we see a man who had been sick for thirty-eight years, who knew how he could be healed but could not get up and do what was required. He was impotent, unable to move, just as we all are unable to meet the requirements of religion. But then the Lord Jesus came to this man and spoke. The impotent man heard the enlivening word of the living, life-giving Lord, and he was healed. It is the same with us today. When we have Jesus, we have life’s enlivening.

In his Gospel, John uses nine cases to represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the fifth of these nine cases, the feeding of the five thousand. These five thousand people were seeking nourishment, and the Lord met their need in a rich way. Here we see not only our need and hunger, but also the richness of life’s feeding.

In his Gospel, John uses nine cases to represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the sixth of these nine cases, the need of the thirsty. The Feast of Tabernacles was a time of satisfaction, but actually those there were still thirsty. Even when we have succeeded in our achievements, enjoyed our possessions, and rejoiced in the best circumstances, we will find that we still have a thirst. Something within us remains unsatisfied. Like the Israelites at the feast, our need is life’s quenching.

In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee considers further the sixth of these nine cases, which illustrates the need of the thirsty. This booklet centers around John 7:37: “Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” Everything has its last day. Every feast comes to an end, and we will feel thirsty. Then we must come to the Lord Jesus and answer His cry. To have our thirst quenched, we must come to Him and drink of the living water.

In his Gospel, John uses nine cases to represent the various conditions and needs of human beings in order to illustrate that Jesus Christ as life fully meets the need of man’s every case. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the seventh of these nine cases, a woman caught in the act of adultery. After catching this woman, the religious people asked the Lord Jesus what they should do with her. They were hoping to trap the Lord by forcing Him to choose between the law and His position as the Savior. But the Lord answered in the wisest way, and through this situation He revealed life’s setting free.

When the Lord Jesus healed this man, He did so in a particular way, unveiling not only the need of the blind but also life’s sight.

In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on John 10, which is related to the case of the blind man in John 9. In chapter 10 the Lord Jesus spoke of the sheepfold. Many Christians know that we are the Lord’s sheep, but have you considered what the sheepfold is? The key to unlocking the secret of this parable depends very much upon the meaning of the sheepfold.

Previously, the Lord Jesus healed the sick and dying, but Lazarus was already dead. His need was not healing; it was for life’s resurrecting.

It is the producing of the church, a house of feasting and the place where the Lord can rest and obtain His satisfaction. In this booklet taken from Life-study of John, Witness Lee focuses on the matter of the church as life’s issue.
