"...The Word's got everything. The greatest love story is in the Word. The greatest short story is in the Word. The greatest Mystery is in the Word. The Word's got it all, man! Sure is something. I'm glad the Lord loves us. All we need to do is just reach out and touch the hem. Sometimes you know, ma'am, we get so sincere and so hard at this thing and we work so hard we miss all the joy of living. We just have to get to the place that we let go and let God. People I just have to get to the place that I implicitly trust His Word. If His Word says so in that which is addressed to me, I have to just believe that Word, no matter what the symptoms are in the senses world. Just reach out and touch the hem....You can pray til your blue in the face and get nothing but "blue face" [audience laughter]. You'll get the answer to that prayer when we do one thing, believe according to his principle and just reach out, sir, and touch the hem of his garment...."
"...Boy isn't this Word of God just exciting and illuminating and alive and dynamic. And how far below par we've lived because everybody's always pushing us down. Who has dared to say to us: we are what the Word of God says we are; that we have what the Word of God says we have (outside of this ministry I haven't seen it)...."
"All believing equals receiving!"
"...We'll read a theorem in a Math class and believe it; we'll drive down the street and see a sign on the bank that says temperature and time, we'll believe it; we get a statement from the bank at the end of the month, we'll believe it; but God who gave us His Word, sir, over a couple thousand years with over 66 different men writing, no contradiction in it, WE WON'T BELIEVE GOD'S WORD BUT WE'LL BELIEVE THE CLOCK ON THE BANK AND THE TEMPERATURE! No wonder we're freezing to death spiritually! That's right. Ladies and gentleman, God is spirit. And if you're ever to know spirit, sir, you've got to go to the Word! It's the Word that makes known the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ...."
