It says in God’s Word that God sent His Word and healed people. For many years I didn’t understand what that meant: “God sent His Word and healed people.” Then as I got deeper and deeper in the working of the Bible I began to see that literally God’s Word is healing. When we put on His Word in our minds, when we absorb it, when we begin to live it, we receive the greatest healing I know.
A person can teach God’s Word to thousands, and thousands can be delivered when that temperature of believing rises so when they hear the Word they appropriate it to themselves.... It is that simple. I want you to see from the record in Mark 3 that Jesus Christ ministered to the man simply by giving him God’s Word. After that, many more were healed because the spiritual temperature, the whole level of believing, was so fantastic after they heard the Word. This is what I expect to see among believers those who have a need in a category can have that need met just with the teaching of this wonderful Word of God.
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.
