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.

SUMMARY KEYWORDS: God, senses, man, knowledge, spiritual realities, spirit, analyze, life, natural, spiritual hunger, mind, world, spiritual

I'd like for you to take your Bibles tonight and turn to the 12th chapter of Romans. And while you're turning to the 12th chapter of Romans I want you people here to enjoy another number by our friend Lois Seward from Greenville, Ohio a song that I have a specially asked Rhoda our Minister of music to ask her to sing for me tonight and since you're here with me I'll let you enjoy it fair enough. And of course our wonderful radio audience will have the privilege of listening to it also one of the tremendous songs than I met the master Lewis

00:56

like a baby when he cries for his mother like I was now when me now to like a blind man in the dark search now I walk no more when he New Day bro me mass now baby that tremendous I think that other song like we just learned a while ago I started learning I'd be tremendous for you too, down there where she and I like to sing them low down, way down there I think we were down in B flat or something when I sang it first and we had Dorothy to put it up to a higher range so you ladies could participate a little better. She sings these two or three or four steps lower in their written or something

04:01

in song like that just blesses my heart used to be Mr. Bank like when I was in band word when that when those people get through singing, sometimes just felt like you ought to pronounce the benediction go home because you couldn't add any more to it. Your heart had just been touched and you just had heard God's message through the saying, Well, what are we going to sing for if we can't hear God's message right? That's why you are what you think you are you are what you feed your mind. And if you keep feeding negative songs to your mind, keep feeding the wrong things to your mind you'll manifest wrong things. The reason the average church person is so Chris so so negative as a Christian he's singing Christian negative songs all the time. And so he's just manifesting what he's single. Well, you've stopped the org and I'm gonna teach pretty soon. Thank you. Thank you wrote it. They they they never know what I've just liable to do the next. That's I believe why most you people come away headquarters. You're never quite sure either. And you're just you're just wondering whether we're ever going to make it I'm getting the go sign. I'm supposed to put this thing on. So I'm supposed to do this earlier in the evening. But how can you wear a microphone to speak to your people and have Reverend crone and Reverend Chamberlain speak off the same microphone while it's around your neck. And you figure that No. This is always a delightful opportunity. Every Sunday night, I get dressed before my people, and all these other minor things. So all of you people in here from Florida, and Michigan, and Minnesota and Wisconsin and all these other places, when you hear these broadcasts, or you hear these tapes in your areas, you now know all the shenanigans that go on here at headquarters to produce this thing that makes it possible for you at least to hear a little bit of the Word of God. In Romans 12 Chapter people. In verse one, we have this tremendous record. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. The word reasonable is the word religious in the text. And verse to be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, by the renewing of your mind, that G may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God. This is a class and this is a camp on the renewed mind.

06:37

The renewed mind is the key to power. When a person is born again of God's Spirit, or is accepted the Lord Jesus Christ, unless he renews his mind, and endeavors to put up in his mind that which the Word of God says he has received spiritually, he will never work with a great luck in manifestation in life, to the end that we renew our mind, and put on the mind of Christ and let this word of God dwelling us richly, to the end, we put this on in our mind, we manifest for the greatness of the power of God. No person ever rises beyond what he believes. And no person ever believes beyond what he's taught. And no one can teach you more than he himself or she knows. In other words, you can't lead anyone, any further than you yourself have been led. And we never rise beyond what we believe. And what you believe is what you think and what you think is what you manifest. This camp is on the renewed mind, the greatest family camp in the world today, nothing equals where the children the work is among the children, the work among the young people. And the work among the adults is synthesized into a one hole greatness on the category of the renewed mind and how to manifest the greatness of the power of God. The key to power is the renewed mind, to the end that we renew our mind and put on the mind of Christ. To the end, we manifest fourth the greatness of God's word, we will produce in evidence, constant victory and power, Jesus came that we might have life and have it less than less, no, he came that we might have life and have it more than abundant, more abundantly. The Word of God also says that we in Christ Jesus, we are more than what concrete. But when you live in a society where you're taught that you don't amount to very much, and you're less than less, and that you can't ever do anything anyways. And that most Christians are just a bunch of in gumboots, when you're taught all of this, well, no longer we have no manifestation of power, you will never rise beyond what you're taught, you will never rise beyond what you believe. And the scripture says, As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is, if you think negative thoughts, you'll end up negatively. Now there may be people who sometimes talk real positively, but in their mind, and in their heart, they're really thinking negatively, and they are the manifestation of that negative review just what it isn't just what a man says with his lips. It's what he really believes and feels within his heart within the depth of his whole being. A person can say, Yes, I love you. And while your turn around, he suck, you're good one. You see, you can say one thing with your mouth, but you're really something else inside the real renewed mind. The renewed mind is like the psalmist said, you get your back feet tracking with your front ones. He make us my feet like Heinz feet instead of me upon my high places. When you get your back feet tracking with your front ones. When you say with your mouth, what you really believe within your heart, then you've got the renewed mind. Now this Roman section is very clear. He said, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a loving lot. Sacrifice I'd got so sick and tired of hearing people say they want to die for the Lord. God gravy who wants to die? How many of you in here tonight want to die? We call the undertaker now. They always say, Well, I give up my life for Jesus. Ever hear that? I die for him? Well, God never asked you to die for him. He asked you to live for Him. God tried, he says, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, not a dead one. Why sure. And sometimes it's much more difficult to live than to die, be a lot easier kicking the bucket dying than it is to live. Because when you really start living for God, you've got to take a stand, and you've got to walk it. Day after day and week after week, you have stand up on the integrity and accuracy are God's word. And again, you say that Seth, Lord. And when you say not set the Lord, You've got to be sure that you're saying what the Lord says, that's right, and as you say it, as you say it, and as you believe it, then you're a living sacrifice. Anybody can die for the Lord, but they're very few people really look for it. And we are to present our bodies, a living sacrifice, our bodies a living sacrifice. You and I are no good to God when we're dead. We're only good to God while we're living and witnessing to the greatness of the power of God, right? Sure. That's why Roman says work to present our bodies, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable under God, this is our religious service. This is our service to Him, because He loved us and He gave Himself for us. And any very pointedly says, To do this, you cannot be conformed to this world. But you've got to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. That's it by the renewing of the mind. And by that renewing of the mind, you are able to prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. And without the renewed mind you cannot prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will have gone you can. Now I said to you earlier that spiritual realities may be ascertained even as sense knowledge facts may be analyzed. And that you cannot analyze spiritual realities. You can only analyze that which has come into concretion in the census rail, you can take water into a laboratory and you can analyze it. But you cannot take the Spirit of God into a laboratory and analyze it. spiritual realities all spiritual realities, class must be ascertained. All sense knowledge, facts may be analyzed. But you can never analyze a spiritual reality. You can ascertain things like this. God can give you a revelation, word or knowledge, word of wisdom, discerning of spirits. God can give you this revelation, but you can't analyze it. But you can reach up as I call it in Daddy's cookie jar. And if God reveals it to you, then these spiritual realities are ascertained by you. They're not analyzed. This is why when we minister to people, here at the light biblical Research Center, we ministered to them by revelation. We do not analyze the situation a doctor analyzes a poke over here on one side or the other. He does something when he finally decides it's appendicitis, which side is this side or that right or left? Well, maybe I got them on both sides. But by by the method of trial and error, and by what they call scientific method, blood count and everything else. He finally analyzes and says that you have an inflamed appendix and you have to have an appendectomy. Right. Okay. You can't do this in the spiritual realm. When you minister to God's people, and this is where of course we'll be going in the advanced class right down to the grassroots of the word on this thing. When you minister to people, we never analyze. I'm not a doctor, I am a doctor but not an MD. But the I'm not a medical man. Right? Analyze. Know, if I know anything, it's only because God tells me and I do not analyze I ascertain. There are two kinds of knowledge in this world. One is knowledge which is acquired via the five senses which you could call Natural knowledge, if you want to, you could call it world knowledge. And if you want to be real academic, you can call it philosophy. Because philosophy means world knowledge. This is why the highest earning degree is called adopters of philosophy. Because by that time, they're the wisest men and women in the stupidest categories of all the knowledge that's available. Almost right, because all of our philosophy is World wisdom, tremendous. But it's not big enough, as far as I'm concerned. It's not true knowledge and all natural knowledge may be known by the five senses. But there's other knowledge in this world. And this knowledge is spiritual knowledge. And spiritual knowledge cannot be as analyzed, it can only be ascertained.

15:55

And spiritual knowledge can only be known via the Spirit, even as natural knowledge can only be known via the five senses. Let me show you something. I'll move these things over so I could write on the board. God is what God is spirit. Man who is born again of God, soul, his body, and he is soul. And he is what spirit. Now, this man of body and soul, The natural man, this man of body and soul has as his media of learning, the five senses, the five senses, this is how he learns. Everything that ever comes over the human mind, to the natural man comes via the five senses, by way of the five senses. And so this man, by way of the five senses, has tremendous learning, but the learning that he has, is all in the category of his mind. Tremendous learning, but he's always built up his mind is the reason has built up in here in his mind, and via that he has become very wise. But that wisdom is natural wisdom, its world wisdom. That's why in the Bible, in the Bible, this man of body and soul is called the natural man. He is called the man of the flesh. He is called the carnal man. He is called the man of the five senses. Every place in the Old Testament in the New Testament, when it talks about the natural man of body and soul, it says that he is a natural man, why? Why would they call him an actual man, because he has only the media have the natural abilities whereby he can acquire knowledge. The natural man is limited to information gathered by the five senses, by what he sees, hears, smells, tastes or touches. And he analyzes this and he catalogs it in his mind, he has limited, he is limited. And in First Corinthians chapter two verse 14, The natural man, that now natural man receiveth, not the things of the Spirit of God. That's right. It's allowing vows. You see, God is a God of law in order, like every cause has an effect in every effect has a cause. Nothing ever happens just of itself, there is a reason for everything. And God is a God of War and a God of order. And I'm going to set before you tonight, some of the greatest truth in the field of knowledge, that I know from the accuracy of the word. And here it talks very specifically about the natural man, the man of body and soul, he received us not the things of the Spirit of God. For they are what unto him, foolishness, neither can he know them, he cannot, he cannot know them, then it tells you why. This is why the natural man in his great quest, and with his great intellectualism can never know God. He cannot know God, for God is Spirit. And to know God, you have to come the law. And the law way is that spirit can only be known by a spirit, even as things in the natural realm can only be known via the category of the five senses. That's the law. Now the trouble is the good can you walk us on this thing? And they think they can know something about God with our brains. They can you know what they know about him? Nothing. That's true. Alright, so they don't call it God they call it divine mind. Or someone comes along and calls it creative universalism. How would you like to spend a night praying to creative universalism? Why not be just real affectionate, real compassionate? Oh, thou creative universalism, how I long for Your presence. Man, that's romantic, isn't it? Leaves y'all have for the Lord or something? No.

20:33

Or they call it something else. You see, it's all by a reason, reason. And the Scripture said in Corinthians as plain as day and it's a law, and the law that works with a mathematical and scientific precision, that does not trauma and receive us not the things of the Spirit of God, really, to that natural man, those things or the Spirit of God, I want to dim foolishness. Sure, that's why the natural man, if you talk to him about prayer, or if you talk to him about signs, miracles and wonders, The natural man, by pure reason, would have to say, it's baloney. That's no good. It's a bunch of hogwash. Because by the natural mind, that man cannot, he cannot, no matter how soon serious sincerity is no guarantee for truth, he just cannot know the things of God, because an entirely different category, it's foolish to sunny, neither can he know that he cannot know them. Because things are that spiritual around must be discerned how? spiritually. That's why I said to you, that sense that spiritual realities may be ascertained. But sense knowledge, facts maybe aren't analyzed. These things are tremendous when you put them together. You see, this natural knowledge, deals with the information gathered via the five senses. But this other kind of knowledge has to do with the Spirit. And you can call it spiritual knowledge. Now, the spiritual hunger in people is just as real as the physical or the mental hunger. And I would like to say to you, from my experience through the years, I believe that the spiritual hunger is many times greater than the physical or the mental. And because people are looking for a spiritual answer, they are going to every avenue and category to find it, except the one place where you ultimately get it in the integrity and the accuracy of God's word. But I believe that that spiritual hunger is tremendous. And remember what Jesus said in Matthew, I believe it is for for I think it's also recorded in the Gospel of Luke, Man shall not live by what? Bread Alone, which means he little these a little bit, need a little bit of bread food, right? LSU ladies couldn't go like that, or like this. Match. I like you. So don't go home. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouths of God. So there are two types of food man needs. One is physical food, and the other is spiritual food. And this man, this man by the five senses, that man by the five senses cannot know God, for God is Spirit. But if this man is born again of God's Spirit, His body, His soul, and His Spirit, and this spirit is eternal life. This is God in Christ in the man. And this man having Spirit of God being Spirit, God can again talk to him, and this is why the man can discern, this is an answer to some of the things you and I were talking about this afternoon. I didn't know that it will all come up tonight. But there it is, honey, plain as the nose on my face. She said, Well, how does he know? Or how do I know? God tells me that's how I know. And if God doesn't tell me I'm just as stupid as anybody else. But when God's Spirit is that a man, God is not stupid, and God being spirit can talk to my spirit, which is His Spirit in me. And as God speaks to this spirit, which is in me, I happen to also be body and what so and part of this body and soul of me is mind. Somebody said not very much, but it's at least there. I like that's like that fellow wonder one time if I fell out of the cradle when I was born, and shortly after I was born, fell on my head, he thought, but alright. I asked him if he fell someplace else. We had a great round round three to four. This guy doesn't Look, God's Spirit teaches my spirit. And since this is in me, I also have mind. So the Spirit teaches my mind. And that's how I know. This is what God God never meant for the church to be stupid, you know that. He said the church was not to be ignorant, not to be ignorant.

25:23

And yet many times I believe we've just been about as ignorant as you can get. Because you see, via the senses, we can learn a lot of wonderful things like we can learn the Bible, I can teach you the renewed mind via the centers, what do you know something, I can't really lead you to getting any information from God outside of that which is revealed, you by your own self are going to have to learn the techniques, which God gives us His word on how to receive revelation. So God's Spirit can speak to your spirit, which is His Spirit in you, it's now your spirit, because it's a gift. And as God gives that revelation, that is spiritual knowledge, that is knowledge which is acquired not via the five senses, but via the spirit. And that's what the scripture means when it says, holy men of God spake as they were moved by want the Holy Spirit. This is why when Paul said in Galatians, to look it up, Corinthians Galatians, it's in the New Testament. galleys sins, chapter one. chapter one, verse 11, but I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after that, man, it's a dead end that he preached was not after man. If he had preached it after man, he would have had had to have learned it from man, right. Like Reverend crone said, of what he learned at Ohio State, this was taught to him by man, Paul says that the gospel which he preaches is not after what, man, her, I neither received it, of man, neither was I was taught it, but by blunt revelation of who, if he wasn't taught it, if he didn't receive it from my hand, then there has to be another media whereby a person can learn, right? That's the media I've drawn here on the board. It is when God's Spirit teaches his creation in you, which is now your spirit. And your Spirit teaches your mind, which is part of the body and soul. And then it comes into manifestation. It's difficult for most men today, to learn to live by the Spirit side or the faith side. You know why? Because man has so long lived via the five senses. It's hard for him to believe what God's Word says, and really start doing it power for abundant living came down again, we're going to have to put this on there to stay. This must be my night up here. I tell you, I'm glad you're on a good humor. And I thought when these fellas set this stage for me tonight, they had everything in order. And you know, last week, we had a big staff meeting, tell you about stuff. And they read, they just were all over me. And great group people we got they're always concerned about. And they said, Doctor, where will the trouble with you is you just don't allocate enough responsibility to people. And then you just don't let it go when you allocate it. They didn't just all say it this much worried. But I read the writing on the wall. And they said, Why don't you let some of the people carry this load? Well, I do I want to go.

28:57

We love each other, don't we? We're a great bunch. Well, people have learned long ago, that if you're going to do something, you better do it. Well, somebody somebody wants that. It's just like, Well, how do you put that? It's funny that you can't do it right the first time, but you can always take time do it the second time. You haven't got time to do it right the first time, but you've always got time to do it the second time I like to, was that right? I think that's it. But I've always been concerned and I suppose this is the greatness of the accuracy of the word that lives within your see on this word, people. I can't miss one iota. If I flip on one little thing. If that thing isn't tight, it goes down. If I were that slipshod on the Word of God, it never leaves. It lives because Ma'am, I don't budge on the word and its chart and it's clear. There could every person in this auditorium rise up tonight and say that it doesn't say what the word it say said not saying this is what the Word says. That's what it means. And I'd go home. And you could stand out there and argue all night and say it doesn't say it. I'd say that's what it says. That's what it means. Because on the word, you either are slipshod or you're accurate. And if you're slipshod, you'll never have the greatness of God's word. That's how I feel about the whole ministry. That's like guy like stuff straightened up shore. When you walked in here tonight, somebody had swept the place beautifully set the chairs laid the music out the auditoriums all set ready to go the lids up on the piano, the Oregon's open the music style set. That's right, someone had to do it. But you see, we might as well be accurate all the way down the line. And most of the Christians are slipshod. Have you ever left inside of some of these buildings and stuff? They're brand new had ammonia year or two. But they're never cleaned. I never liked papers laying all over the place. They're the same way whether things are gone at all slipshod. When once you get to the greatness of God's word, you changed your life, women began cleaning the house cleaner. You just don't sweep it under the rug anymore. And you'll wash the dishes cleaner, right? Sure it is because nobody equals the greatness of a Christian. No man is any greater than a Christian, if he renews his mind, and in the greatness of that renewed mind is the power. That's the greatness of the key to power. And if we want to go far with God, we're going to have to renew our minds according to his Word. And we're going to have to find out exactly how God's word really fits and operates. You see all natural knowledge, all this vast natural knowledge that man has, comes via the works of man, all of it. The nature of man basically as to repudiate grace, He wants to save himself. He wants to do that works, which will make him appear good in God's sight, because it inflates his ego or whatever that thing is. I think the psychiatry is not sure anymore if it's Eagle. Maybe it's just me, oh, Lord, I don't know. But anyways, whatever that me is. So all faith, for spiritual knowledge comes by grace. And class sense knowledge knows very few of the great realities of life. The senses are merely the registering apparatus. That's all. They read your stirred the effects, but never the reality behind it. For instance, love how much love can you put in a test tube? And what can you do with that love in the laboratory is a test tube, but the Bunsen burner under it and find out how much I don't know what you're gonna find out. About life, how about light? How about faith? You see all these great realities, that great spiritual realities of life. You cannot put in a test to the greatest things that life you have to ascertain by believing. And this greatness is what makes the difference between a frustrated and defeated life. And one who walks with an effervescence and with a glow. It's driven through all natural knowledge, religions, all natural knowledge, religions, and that's about all we've got today. Even so called Christianity is nothing more or less than just about natural knowledge religion. It's it's digress so far from the integrity and accuracy of the word. It has. It has a little bit of Christianity and abuts mostly religion, mostly religion. Religion is man made ma'am. And gentlemen, religion is that which man does. Christianity is what God wrought in Christ.

33:59

We are God's children. God is our Father. We are his what? Children, it's the way of a father with his family. It's not a works, it's of grace. God so loved the world that he didn't want gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. It's what God did that counts. And so we receive it by grace, not by works. But there is a lot of so called natural religion in this Christianity as we see it today, but all natural knowledge, religions, all of them. Basically, they begin in idolatry, and they end in philosophy or in metaphysics, all of them and all of them like the philosopher Hegel. All of them were basically deny The real person of God, they don't deny the reality of the person of God. They'll call it as I said, divine mind. Or as my philosophy professor at the University of Chicago, Chicago, call it creative universalism. Or they call it the I Am. You see, people, the senses cannot see, hear, smell, or taste God. And thus logically, the man via his five senses must deny the personality of God, because he can't know God by a census. So logically, he has to deny, he can do anything else, but and so when he denies this, by his senses, you see, he gets rid of sin. He gets rid of temptation, he gets rid of evil. He gets rid of Satan, he gets rid of sickness, he gets rid of all of those things by denying because he can't reach up in the spirit realm and what he can find out the spirit realm, he says, does not exist, so he just denied. And by sheer logic, when you follow this, very few people follow it by sheer logic, but by sheer logic in the natural realm, you'll follow it, you get exactly to the place where people have said, with a broken arm, they have said, well, it is broken us think it's broke. Right? They've said it, right? They have said, well, it really is an evil. It's just good. turned a little pink or something like that, all of these things, and that if you understand what I'm teaching the night the difference between the realities that can be known by the spirit and the sense knowledge facts, which may be ascertained by the five senses, and you see those two categories of knowledge and you work these logically and Neverland overlap, you'll have 100 answers. Many other great basic problems and questions in your life. Not true knowledge never gives God the credit. Not for knowledge, sense knowledge wise always takes the credit for itself. Look what I did. Look at my patent. Look at my idea. Well, let me look at it. If you're so blessed that big. Where did you get your life from? If you're that big boy, where did you get it from? How come you still got life here tonight? I was coming. You can still get in this auditorium tonight. You see how a man always prides himself and blows himself up? I did it for you did. I am the one I got the idea. I am the one that got the patent or you did. You did to a degree, but not to the degree that you're blowing about it. Because unless it was for the laws of God in operation, you and I wouldn't even be here. Why don't we give God the credit since knowledge man never does. He always wants to inflate his ego. He always wants to build himself up. You've heard the phrase you pull yourself up by your bootstraps, right, though since noddies man ever does. But when a man really takes a spiritual resources, you'll hear him say, Yes, I thank God. This is what God has taught us. This is how God has brought us along. You'll always give God the credit. That's why the Scripture said that they thank God that God had given such power unto men, because the men who had that power Dora, five God, in Acts chapter eight, it wasn't the man glorifying God. It was the man glorifying himself remember, diamond said, Look what I have done. Since knowledge never gives God the credit, it always takes it for itself. The natural knowledge is always in what man is what man can do and what man has done. revelation knowledge or spiritual knowledge is always in the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever. Men will come and go class. The Thomas Paine's and the Ingersoll and the world will come and go, but the Word of God will live and abide forever. And upon that word of God, you can build your believing upon that word of God, you can pin your hope, upon that word of God, you can put your feet for what God has promised. He is not only able but he is willing to perform, but God can only act when you and I believe. Look at Second Corinthians chapter four. Second Corinthians chapter four, verse 18, While we look not at the things which are saying, but at the things which are we're not seeing are the things which tyrosine are what, but the things which are not seen are what is not some, the things which you can see are in the five senses category. And anything that you can see, haste, handler, touch, all those things are temporal. But the things that you cannot see an ounce of love, God who is Spirit, these things which you cannot see, these are eternal. And man has so acclimatized his life and conditioned that for the most part, he is looking always at the things which are temporal and thinking like those are the things that will make him happy, that are giving him joy. But you know what gives a man or a woman real joy, the knowledge of God's word, when that knowledge is set in your soul like a diamond, and you understand the integrity with which that wonderful word fits. Then you begin to manifest a greater abundance in life, because you have renewed your mind to walk according to the light of the word. Nothing wrong with the five senses, God put them the way you wanted them. But above the five senses is the spirit realm, and we are to walk by the Spirit and make our five senses. He told the line we're wired to be transformed in our day by day walk by the renewing of our mind.
