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.

Colossians chapter one tonight, everybody, get your Bible. Those of you listening by radio, if you have a Bible handy, I hope you get your Bible. Thank you, Rhoda. Thank you, Dorothy.

For him to the book of Colossians, chapter one. I'm going to do something tonight that I do not do too frequently at the headquarters of the way on Sunday night.


Because ordinarily, here at the headquarters of the way, I pick a section of Scripture, like a chapter like we did last Sunday night, Sunday night before all chapters of Scripture and just put them together all the way down the line. But there is a wonderful way to also study the Word of God besides doing things that way. That is to take a certain subject or a certain type of material that you want to handle, and that's the word of God gives the answer to and share that with your people. Tonight, I want to cover the subject of what do we have in Christ Jesus, or in a positive way stating it in Christ we have, and then search the scripture to find out exactly what do we have? Many believers, my people do not even know that they are in Christ. Many so called believers do not know that them in Christ. They do not know that they have eternal life. Now, they do not know that they've already been translated into the kingdom of his dear son. And so they're hoping that someday, some way, somehow they may make it. Right. Many believers who do know that they are in Christ, are afraid to say so many believers, who know that they are in Christ, are not only afraid to say so but they're afraid to act like they are. We find so many, many Christian believers, trying to obtain for themselves, what God has already made available unto them, which they all ready have, because God in His love and His mercy, and by His grace, gave it to them. They already have it. But they're trying to obtain that which God has all ready, given you and I should note three things before we finish this word of God and teaching on this word tonight. We should know who we are. In Christ Jesus. We should know what we are in Christ Jesus with a capital W a capital H and a capital T, what we are in Christ Jesus. And not only should we know what we are, but we should know what we have in him right now. That is where we're going to go tonight, by the grace of God, cover this sufficiently so that everybody can walk for effervescing and glowing and bubbling in their hearts from the fellowship tonight. Knowing that greatness of God's power and of His word among us. The first step to we want to deal with is taking some Colossians chapter one, verse 30, we might start reading with verse 12, Giving thanks unto the Father, who has made us adequate to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the like, in like, verse 13, who have what tenses, past tense, who would have delivered, delivered then is in what tense, past tense, who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and as translated us into the kingdom of his dear son, our redemption them is from Satan's dominion.


There are two Dominions to authority to powers in the world today. One is the power of God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The other is the Dominion or the authority or the power of Satan, which is man Festus in this word, our redemption, He has delivered us from the power of God, which means that our redemption, our deliverance, is from Satan's dominion. He has done, did I do this? No, not at all. So I'm not trying to obtain redemption, by my work. I am trying to obtain redemption, by believing by believing that which God has already done what work in Christ Jesus, He has delivered and he has delivered, then as far as the believer is concerned, is he delivered from the dominion, the authority and the power of Satan? Then the believer is no longer in the realm of safety. Where God has redeemed us, God has brought us out of Satan's dominion into the glorious liberty of himself. He has delivered us from the power of darkness, and half past him, translated us into the kingdom of his Was there something then, when we are born again of God's Spirit? Are we redeemed from Satan's dominion? Definitely are we delivered from and we are delivered from it on legal grounds. Because God, when his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ came into the world. He redeemed man, he satisfied the justice of God for that, and he redeemed man on legal grounds. the redemption of man biblically, is the most legal thing you've ever seen. And having legally redeemed it, then Satan has no dominion, or authority or power over the believer, because the believer has already been delivered. And the believer has already been translated into the kingdom of his dear son. You see what I said a moment ago, when we first began. There are many believers who do not know what they are in Christ. They've never been taught this word. They've read it. But they just haven't dared to believe it. Because the environment around them thought that they take heed lest they fall. And their environment has taught them that this cannot be for them. And so there are many of them, who are born again of God's spirit who do not know these great truths. And then someone could knows them. And they do know them. Believers have heard this. But these believers are just afraid to say they're just afraid to say what the Word says. They are. And people let me ask you something. Are we elevating dots? When we contradict what the Word says? Even if a person feels like he's awful humble, but when he contradicts what the Word of God says, he's awful, but he's not humble. It's hard because true humility is to say what the Word says. The Scripture says, We have been translated, delivered, and have been translated into the kingdom of his dear son, that as far as the believer is concerned, tonight, has he been delivered? And has he been translated? That's why we have to say what the Word says. We have to ask what the Word tells us. We are looking at Romans, chapter three.


Romans chapter three, verse 21. But now, the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed to by the law and the law, the law and the prophets of the Old Testament witness to the righteousness of God. But could any person get this righteousness on the inside? No, that's why the Old Testament says that righteousness was what record was written unto them. Those are believers. Today is imputed. In the Old Testament, because the righteousness was written, their sin was simply covered. Their sin was simply covered. In the New Testament, they, they the, in the New Testament, our sin is not covered. Our sin is what plans blotted out plans. That's the difference. Plan. While in the Old Covenant, it was simply what? Covered. That's why in the new covenant in the New Testament, church epistles, teaching these great tools, that you are plenty of all seen that there is not even a consciousness. Boy, how tremendous and fabulous that truth is. The righteousness of God. Without the law is manifested. Rs 22 The righteousness of God, which is by the face of Jesus Christ, that's the righteousness of God and man, basically, his righteousness. As long as a man feels terrible within, as long as he feels condemned, and a sinner, and all blacks and negative on the inside, he can't ever manifest the greatness of the power of God, or the positive side of life, in his daily living man's basic needs is righteousness unto all and upon all, that do us pity, for there is no What if, if there was a difference, then one person would have more righteousness than another person. But every believer, every born again, believer, every sane person, every converted person, every one of them has the same amount of righteousness, which is the righteousness of us, of God, which came by Jesus Christ, and it's upon all and unto all them that do us. A man isn't that I appeal to. All my people want to train them this true modern illumination this brings to the soul of a person, but know that he has the righteousness or boom, you see why I said, there are many believers who are afraid to say what they are. And they're afraid to act like it. Because sense knowledge wise, you'll never get to the place that you'll always feel like you're righteous. But the way that God says that within the Spirit, God looks upon you, and in God's sight, he has delivered Julius translated you, and he has given you his right to know when we walk fourth out of this Bible Research Center into another wonderful week, we walk with whose righteousness, our righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, which is unto all and above all, that do. Know when we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, we got the righteousness of God, then what do we have? We have his love. Amen. That's what it says. That's what it means are all have sinned, verse 23. And come sort of the glory of being justified reluctantly. No being justified, how freely being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption, that is in Christ Jesus, we are justified. And whenever you're justified, you're made righteous. You could not be made righteous until after you were justified.


And who justified God through Christ. Right. Nice justified you before God which gives you the righteousness of God. And we're justified freely, not reluctantly, not at not haphazardly. We are justified freely. It said breathing. That's without cost. Now charge If we're justified freely by his grace, and is there anything that I could work for, for my justification? If I just if I worked for it, it would not be free. Right? It'd be worse. But we are justified, free, wait for you by His grace, not a tremendous thing. Verse 25, Christ Jesus whom God has set to be a propitiation, though faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness, his righteousness whose righteousness, God's righteousness, for the remission of sin, the remission of sins, I want you to notice that in verse 25. AWS, there's a tremendous difference between remission of sins and forgiveness of sin. later on tonight, I'm going to show you this but right now I want to call it to your attention in this verse. God has set Christ Jesus to be the payment, the propitiation, the coverage. While I'm just reading this verse, The Spirit brings to my mind, by My Spirit within me to spirit within that, perhaps you ought to read Hebrews nine. Where it says, not the blood of bulls and goats, remember, I think it's a nine, we will look it up tonight. But it's in the Hebrews section, read that in line with verse 25. To see how this payment was accomplished, God sent Jesus Christ to be the payment. And whenever I believe, through faith in his love, when I believe in what Christ accomplished for me, then I get what he made available. To declare his righteousness, or the remission of sins that are passed, through the forbearance of love God, God, through the forbearance of God, through God's love, through God's mercy. How many people are not? We believe that it is God who brings evil upon them. It cannot be for God is a God of love, God's God's grace and mercy. He gives us remission of sins, through the forbearance of God, verse 26, do declare, I say at this time, his righteousness, and he might be justified, that he might be just, and the justifier of him, which believe that and hope you see them, when I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, when you believe when anybody down through the centuries has believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, then he was justified before God because of what Christ God, you're upon her. And being justified, we have peace, our our father, because we have his right. This is what we have his right to. Well, look at the fourth chapter of this tremendous book of Romans. Verse 25, who was delivered, Jesus Christ was delivered for our offenses, for our sins is the text for where we all found a God, where we sinned against God. And the Scripture said, verse 23, of chapter three we read a while ago for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, then all mankind has, Oh, thanks offended him all have sinned against him. But he was delivered for our sin and was raised again.


When we were justified is the text raised again for our justification? He was raised from the dead when we were justified. When he had completely satisfied the justice of God, then we were what justifies this. That's why he stayed in the grave three days and three nights. Had he only stayed there from Friday night. afternoon till Sunday morning, you wouldn't have a Bible truth let it all be broke. Because no man could have justified us before God, except he completely fulfilled the requirements of God. This is the reason that the scripture says in Corinthians and other places that he was three days and three nights was the heart of the earth, even as Jonas was three days and three nights. All of this fits together, if you understand what you have in Christ, and if you want to know what you have, you have to understand the revelation of the word of God and what He did for you. This is why he was delivered, he was delivered for our sins, or your sins and mine. And when he was delivered, I did that deliverance was his death. It was my sin and yours sin that made it necessary for rice to die. The sin he was delivered for our sins. And when we were justified, then he was raised again, and was raised again when we were justifying. And that's why the next verse should always be read in line with how they could ever get a chapter in here. It's beyond me. But they do it. Therefore, because I have been justifying their part be justified by faith. I have boy I love this in the first person. I think it's Robert ham. In his translation, I think it is, Dr. Jung, the same man who did the Young's analytical concordance. In his translation, it puts all of this in the first person who was delivered for my sins, and was raised again, when I was justified, therefore, being justified by faith. I have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. He for wasn't just ringing the souls of the church people across the world today if they could only hear that once again, they have peace. Why don't we need a world well, not happy? Not people born again. I've gotten spirits living in the midst of this room have been they've got it. But if you don't know you've got it. That you utilize? Nope, no more. So you do not know you've got $1 in your pocket you couldn't spend. Therefore being justified by faith, not faith, that believing of the Lord Jesus Christ, who loved us so much that he laid down his own life. I have peace with thought. Or you can have peace with God unless you're justified. And when you're justified, you have to have a righteousness. A cause righteousness is the God given ability to stand before the presence of God to stand in the presence of God right now, without any sense of sin, guilt, deep frustration, fear or worry or anything else. This is righteousness. If there's one iota of condemnation, it is it is not right to people, this is what we have in Christ. This is what God made Christ to be for us. Isn't it something?


I've got peace. So in the most unpeaceful situation, do I have peace? In the most disquieting environment? Do I have peace in the most alarming situation? Both locally, nationally, or internationally? Do I happy? It reminds me that scripture isn't in the Old Testament. If I went to hell, God would be there who said that? Yeah. David, I think yeah, that's good. You know, this is what I feel in my soul the greatest Most of this thing is your task to get out underneath that you can't get over the top of it, you can't get outside of it. Because you've got wherever you go this is that you've got to be when you're shaking. Somebody asked you to pray for the first time in public. And you say, Oh, hey, do you know what you're having price? Then act like you know what the Word says, act like. And it says, You got what? All my people. Just think of those lives that are sin ridden, then defeated. And yet they're born again of God's Spirit, if they only knew what they had, that righteousness of God, the peace of God, the love of God, the grace of God, the strength of God, the glory of God. All this, every believer has, or God is no respecter of all does not through your heart. By oh my what a tremendous trip.


I think we better look at Hebrews chapter nine. Hebrews chapter nine. I'm tired. You all bring your bibles every Sunday night?


I listened to the broadcast last Sunday night afterwards. Boy, you could just hear the Bible's flip all over the place. Every time we heard the Scripture like now, it was just loud lungs. I wondered if the radio audience thought somebody stood up and sat and wave some sheets around to make him believe that we had Bibles here. Tremendously. Hardly ever that anybody ever comes here in the headquarters except strangers that come for the first time. Forget their Bibles. And if they do, my brother Harry always sees to it that they have one or somebody else sees two. Brothers. One thing you can't be without when you come to we headquarters. That's the sword of the Lord, which is the word of God. You've got to have the Bible. Hebrews chapter nine. Verse 12, was thinking of a while ago now we'll touch either by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own lock, the entered in once into the holy place. How many times in the Old Covenant did they have to enter in every year on the Day of Atonement, every year they went through that same rigmarole. And every year, God did something wonderful. It says he covered their love. Oh, buddy, Christ Jesus. He entered in just once, not every year. That's why you can't give your buddy God's word. Go week after week, and say that Christ is again crucified, that he again is week after week, getting his love. The Scripture said he entered him once. And having obtained eternal redemption. What? Then our redemption is how long, eternal? our redemption is an eternal, red DEM. Therefore, when I am born again of God's Spirit, when you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ when anybody believes on Him, He has eternal redemption. Isn't that wonderful? Look at verse 24, then must he often have suffered now if he went in every year, since the foundation of the world but now once in the end of the at the end of the law period, the word world appears in the King James But it means as accused many other places era age. But now once in the end of the age, Age of Law, have he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of us. In the Old Testament, it was bosun coats. But in Christ Jesus, it was a person, Jesus Christ. And he appeared to put away sin, to put away what sin to do with it, put it away. And let me ask you a question. If he put away sin, then did he deal with the sin problem? Yes, then there is no longer a sin problem today. At all we can possibly have today as a sinner problem. You can't have a sin problem, because who dealt with it? He dealt with it, he put it away by the sacrifice of himself, then today, we no longer have a sin problem. Well, bless God, isn't that wonderful? And yet, multitudes of people live under this contemplation on their days of their life. sin, sin, sin, sin, sin, but the Scripture says, that God in Christ Jesus put away


he has dealt with sin. He put away sin, by the sacrifice of Gibson. And when you go out in this whole world again this week, representing Christ in your daily walk, when you have an opportunity, remind people that Christ dealt with the same problem, and that all we have left is the sinner problem. And that whosoever will may come. And God is no respecter of persons. And there is no sin that God has not covered in Christ Gee, not Allah. That brings me to what I said earlier. We were going to just handle tonight, mainly for the clarification of our mind, on the great accuracy with which the words remission and forgiveness are you in Acts chapter two. Thinking Dorothy, me or some of the rest of you wasn't Shakespeare who said, Damn. Sure, why Shakespeare? And don't ask me which one he said it is. Right now. Then makes cowards of us all. Forget if it was in hotel or wherever. I haven't read Shakespeare for a koozie read the Word of God. But I remember someplace along the line, he said, Sam makes cowards of us all. But you see, Jesus dealt with a sin problem. And this is why, in Acts 238, immediately after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, when the church began, and Peter preached that prevent that sermon, he terminated that great day, preaching that wonderful sermon with this scripture eater said unto them, Repent, and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, or what? the remission of all these people to whom he was preaching and teaching that day, had they ever been born again before? Nope. Now was the first time because it was available now for the first time. Up until this time, their sins had only been covered and not once a year, on the day of up by the blood of bulls and goats, but now with the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, who entered in one sample, they now on this day when they believe God, they no longer were covered with their sin, but they got up remission of sin, remission of sin, to get remission of sin. To get remission of sins is to get remission. And that is to get everything wiped out. Not covered. But plan removed, taken away. Part of he has dealt with our sin. He takes it away. This is why you get removed as I teach In my classes many times using this illustration, if a man is 25 years old, when he accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior, I suppose in 25 years, he could have committed 25 sins, maybe. If you had 1000 sin 100. At that moment, when he gets saved, what happens to those sins? They are remitted at Sony one word you could use biblically, they are remitted. And to get remission, is to get those sins taken care of that you committed before, you're not saying they are remitted. They are given remission. And that is what the scripture is talking about in the Old Testament, even when they were covered. And God said He would remove their transgression, their sin from them, as far as the east is from the list and as deep as a lot deeper, say Paseo had, he would remember them no more.


Though your sins are, they shall be wiped as well. What's the rest of that verse? Though they be read, like what? They shall be good. They're not wonderful. Hey, did he deal with a sin problem? Sure. Therefore, when the center accepts Him, when the sinner is born again of God's Spirit. He gets rid of missionary bias. When people all the time are trying to deal with the same problem, you don't have to deal with the same problem because Christ dealt with it. It's not something we do in confessing our sin, we can face the same with the same problem we can face him the Savior from sin. And when the sinner confesses the Savior from sin, he gets cremation. You can confess your sin to you're blue in the face. You never get say, you get saved. When you confess the Savior from sin dot lower Jesus Christ, he dealt with our sins. That's why the tremendous word remission is use. And it's used for the mathematical exact percent of scientific precision. And it means what it says, and it says what it means. Or plant class. There isn't a man or a woman living, who if he gets saved at 25 years of age, could remember all the sins he committed. Right? Therefore, if salvation was dependent upon the confession of sin, and you forgot one sin, do confess it, could you get saved? No. And if it was dependent upon the confession of sin, it would be a word sad, not of grace. The scripture says that we're saying of grace, not of works, lest any man should boast. If it was, salvation was dependent upon the confession of sin, then Boy, those of you who committed the most got the bigger salvation of our sin since then, that you come in and and confess, the greater your work. And the greater your boasting that you've got saying, in a bigger way than anybody else, yes, the Scripture just contradicts that. For it says we're saved by grace not of works, lest any man can watch. Amen. You see why? You've got to rightly divide the word on the remittances. Otherwise, you've got salvation by works and not by grace. And that all that scripture where Jesus God says in His word that Jesus Christ was the speciation. He was the payment. He who knew no sin became sin, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. All of those scriptures, you contradicted called God alive. Who is man that man to call God alive? animal that's remission of sins. And that day on the day of Pentecost, when he preached that most people needed what religion they had. get born again. And you can't get born again without God given your relation. Or when you're born again of God's Spirit, you confess the Savior from sin, the Lord Jesus Christ, and He has given you revelation. This is what we have. Now after I'm safe, on again of God's Spirit, I get tricked by Satan. tempted by God never tempts anybody Satan does. And I succumb to Satan's trickery. And whenever I succumb to Satan's trickery and get taken in by Satan, after I'm saved, I do what? Sin, I sin, and all sin is unrighteousness before God. Now how do you get rid of that sin after you're saved? In first job, the Epistle of first job? In my town, your God at work tonight be a wonderful night. Your first job?


After one? Verse six. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and class, can you have fellowship before you have sonship? Nope. You first got to have a sonship relationship before you can have fellowship in the family. Reminds me. Dr. and Mrs. Jarvis had a baby boy. Mr. And Mrs. Esterline had a baby boy, a lot of preachers coming up a lot of teachers, a lot of wonderful believers. The Scripture says, Your children aren't pleased when they're born again. Parents are BORN AGAIN of God. What a tremendous thing. What I get is, oh, fellowship. I know, those children, those children did not have fellowship in the family until they were born. You and I cannot have fellowship in the family of God until after we're born again. That's why First John is talking about children who are born again of God's Spirit. And it's talking about the subject of fellowship. If we say that we have fellowship with him, but we walk in walk, we lie. After your safety, say you're walking in the light, but you're not your life. And you do not approve, but very seven, if we walk in the light, as He is like, we have fellowship, he and I have fellowship, one with another. And the blood of Jesus Christ His Son, cleanses us from all sin, what kinds of sin broken fellowship? If we say, verse eight, that we have no sin, no broken fellowship afterwards. we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us where we rely on lack of truth. Verse nine, If we confess our sins, If we confess our sin is open in the Word of God, to the same person. And yet down across our nation, and other nations, you hear this word spoken always to the unconverted the unsane. So from either top ironies word, our man doesn't know his word and renew his mind on the scriptures that we confess the Savior from sin, to get safe. But once you're safe, if you're brave fellowship, then you have to confess your what. And if you confess your broken fellowship, your sin, he God is faithful and just to forgive us of our work, what kinds of sin Oh can see the fellowship, and to cleanse us from all the unrighteousness of that broken? Now when we got saved? Did we get cleansed of all that unrighteousness before? Now then, you see we have His righteousness, his justification, his sanctification, his everything. Now as we walk in the light, you fellowship. But when I said I've got to be able to get back in alignment harmony. That said, I can remember what those are committed for 25 years before I got saved. I couldn't remember all that. But that same would you commit today or tomorrow when Satan trips you? That same you can remember and that one you do walk with? You turned your head On the following You confessed and forgiven. Father, I'm sorry. And when you confess it, what does he do? He forgets, doesn't give you a remission. He gives you forgiveness. Revision is for the unsaved sinner at the time he confesses his Savior from sin, the Lord Jesus Christ. forgiveness of sin is for the same sinner when he gets out of fellowship and he confesses his sin. And when we confess our sin, after we're safe, he still takes it from us, as far as the east is from the west, and as deep as the deepest see, and he will remember it well. You see why the Christian should be walking with an effervescence and a globe because this is what we have in Christ.


This is why the sinner after he sang, all he has to do is confess his sins. And when God puts you back in fellowship, it makes it possible for him to walk with an effervescence and with a glow. I asked this is what we have, this is what we are. And we must never be afraid to say that we are what the Word of God says we are, that we have what the Word of God says we have. Or whenever we say less than what the Word says, we make Him a liar. And his truth is not enough. And we're out of fellowship we ought to confess and get back in alignment harmony with God Second Corinthians Chapter Five Second Corinthians chapter five that will be a very familiar verse to some of you are 17 airpark if any man be in Christ and you renew your mind that you're in him, renew your mind in up here that according to how he is in here in the inner man, they're part if you're any man in Christ, he's a new creation you'll be old things old things up in my head are passed away behold, all things up in the head become due to the end that we are in oh when we say what the Word of God says we put on the mind of Christ and to the end we put on the mind of Christ. The old things of the past are bought as to wait oh god doesn't God deal with people wonderfully if they only knew it?


You don't have to come sleep at night. On during the daytime those that you're gonna sound you don't have to take a lot of aspirin, a lot of tranquilizer.


To let your pin go to sleep at night because of your Sim. No, no, no. Just renew your mind on what you have in Christ and all things a lot. Even the aspirin tablets, the buffer, the rest of the tranquilizers, all the narcotic dopes that are passed around. All all things to come up. And all things our God who would have passed him reconciled us to himself by what? Jesus Christ. If he has reconciled, the word reconciled, means brought back together. Then we are reconciled to Him. You see, because we have righteousness because he Christ Jesus justified. Look at verse 21. Are he God has made him Jesus. Then for us. He Jesus Christ, who know no sin that we might be made what? The righteousness of God in Him. That wonderful. Look at features. Corinthians Galatians. Chapter one free bless would be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, both have past tense, who have blessed us with all what? spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. Doesn't this ring within the depth of our soul to realize that He has blessed us that He has blessed us with all what? spiritual blessings, but he blessed us with all spiritual blessings. If we were at loggerheads with God, if we weren't enmity with God, if there was no peace between us and God, if we were not reading, no, he could not have blessed. The only reason he can bless him with all spiritual blessings is because of what he wrote in Christ Jesus, and that we accepted Christ as our personal Lord and our Savior. In first Corinthians chapter one. There's a tremendous passage of Scripture, I'd like to close with the first Corinthians chapter one, verse 30. Have him of God, are ye in hope in Christ Jesus? What up God? Are you in Christ? Who have God, Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us, and we work with that. Now he has made this


he has made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. That according as it is written, he's had Gloria let him go away in look at one he has made unto life, wisdom, righteous, He is made unto us sanctification is virus if he is made onto a sanctification, and can I do anything to sanctify Myself? No, he is made unto us sanctification, wisdom, righteousness, redemption, sanctification, and therefore my people, we I have resigned to glory at all, we do not glory in our work. So what I have done, that we will re and what he rice team has done for us. Isn't that wonderful? To know what we have in Him? To know what we are? To know where we're going, that we have eternal redemption, that we passed from death to life? Isn't it wonderful? To know what the word says? And then have the boldness and the courage to say it? The business, in shops, and out on the streets and in your home, among your neighbors, in your churches, in your community, to be able to say what the Word of God says, and to say it with boldness and with courage and with conviction. Are people we are what the Word of God says we are. We have what the Word of God says. And we will be what the Word of God says will be in spite of what they may say or thinkers.
