In Acts 16, we have a seismograph, a device that measures earthquakes. So the Bible wasn’t too far
behind the scientists, I guess.
“Paul and Silas prayed” - You remember Paul and Silas were both Romans, and I showed you that
God must have known from the beginning what was going to happen, because the other fellow was
not a Roman; the one that came with Silas from Jerusalem. His name was Judas or Barsabbas. He
was not Roman, yet Silas was. Here we have the record of these two fellows, Paul and Silas, both
Romans, sitting in jail having been beaten, and everything else just contrary to what was supposed to
happen to a Roman.
“sang praises unto God” - I told you literally it meant, “they were hymning” They were just singing
one song after the other and having a great time singing.

Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
