I made the following notes going through this that I just quickly want to share regarding what I
see as God doing throughout this whole section:
In verse 24: He is the Creator
He is the Lord of heaven and earth
He is a God who dwelleth not in temples man made
In verse 25: He’s not worshipped by man’s hands
In verse 26: Made all men of one blood
Times, before; appointed seasons and set limits to the age of man; in other
words, planned the ages.
In verse 27: God provided salvation
In verse 28: The source of all light.
In verse 30: Revelation made known
In verse 31: Assured judgment of righteousness
Jesus Christ the judge
That God via the resurrection guarantees justice
All of that I have seen in Acts 17 in the great sermon that was preached that day by a man of
God called Paul in the most difficult city that any man could go to. That is our God: Same God
today, same Word. That’s why I said when I began, any man teaching this has to be
tremendously humbled, because no man is qualified to teach the greatness of that Word, it’s
just so fantastically fantastic. You can work, and work, and work and yet things escape you
because of the greatness of the divine revelation in the record. But again I’ve done my best and
that’s all a man can do.

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).
Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.
