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.

Excerpt from 297 One God (12/04/66)
So, will you take your Bibles and we are ready to go on the teaching of One God.
The Bible teaches, class, that there is only one God. In Deuteronomy, chapter 6, Verse 4, we read, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.” This record in Deuteronomy 6:4 reads in the original text as…follows, “Hear, O Israel: the Lord Jehovah, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.” There is only one God and he is the Lord. He is Jehovah.
In Ephesians, chapter 4, verse 6, we read, “One God and Father of all.” One God and Father of all.
In Philippines, chapter 1, verse 27, we read, “that ye stand fast in one spirit, [one spirit. That one spirit is God] with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel”
In 1 Timothy, chapter 2, verse 5, I would like Rev. Crohn to read that verse to us. 1 Timothy, chapter 2, verse 5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” Right. There is one God and one mediator between God and man and that mediator is Christ Jesus.
In John, chapter 4, verse 24, I would like for Mrs. Melvin George, Jan George, to read John 4:24, because these are foundational scriptures on which were building the great accuracy of God’s words. “God is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit.” Right. God is spirit. God is spirit. We have one God, that’s all.
Since the early centuries, that is after Christ, Christian doctrine in many instances has taught that Jesus was coexistent with God. That Jesus, either in spirit or in some other form, was with God from the beginning. The doctrines which hold, or have held this idea, that God is Jesus and Jesus is God substantiate their beliefs by isolated bits of biblical text. Genesis 1:26. This is their initial point of departure, where God says, “Let us [let us, Genesis 1:26] make man in our image... and let them have dominion.” The “we” and the “our” are interpreted to mean God and Jesus Christ. But this scripture is no proof of Jesus’s existence in the beginning. The first person plural, the pronouns “us” and “our” are used to speak of the magnitude of the incident to which God related Himself.
A head of a political state often uses the plural pronoun when speaking of himself in his official position. For example, James the First, of England, who authorized the King James translation, declared transactions of State by saying, “We, the king of England.” To this very day, Elizabeth the Second uses the expression, “We, the Queen of England.” Elizabeth is not a “We,” but yet she speaks of herself in her position in the plural. In the same grammatical since, the translators for King James employ the plural pronouns when they said, “Let us [in Genesis 1] make man in our image, after our likeness.”
The Bible teaches that there is only one God, and that this God was in Christ.
2 Timothy, chapter 5, verse 19, Rev. Crohn. Do you have it, Mrs. George? 2 Timothy 5? Did I say Timothy? I am sorry, 2 Corinthians. 2 Corinthians chapter 5, verse 19. This God was in Christ, this is the essence of this scripture. “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”
Right. Now I put three great truths together in this paragraph, so listen carefully:
The Bible teaches that there is only one God. That this God, however, was in Christ. And this is the scripture from 2 Corinthians.
Also, that God is spirit, which we read a little while ago from John 4:24, Mrs. George read, God is a [what?]; and they that worship Him must worship Him, God who is spirit, in truth.
Now, the third great truth is that, God is eternal. Hebrews chapter 9, verse 14…

SUMMARY KEYWORDS: God, Jesus Christ, word, John, spirit, man, preposition, born, Genesis, bosom, father, flesh, beginning, revealed
So where you take your Bibles and we're ready to go on the teaching of one God. The Bible teaches class that there is only one God. In Deuteronomy chapter six, verse four we read, here, O Israel, the LORD our God is one Lord. This record in Deuteronomy six four, reads in the original text as possible, as follows here, O Israel, the LORD, Jehovah, Jehovah, our God is one Jehovah, there is only one God and He is the Lord. He is Jehovah.
Ephesians chapter four verse six, we read, one God and Father of all, one God, and Father of all, in Philippians, chapter one.
Verse 27. We read that you stand fast in one Spirit, one spirit, that one Spirit is God, with one mind striving together for the fate of the gospel. In First Timothy, chapter two, verse five, I'd like for Reverend Chrome to read that verse to us. First Timothy, chapter two, verse five,
for there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, right,
there is one God and one mediator between God and man, and that mediator is Christ Jesus. In John, chapter four, verse 24. I'd like for Mrs. Melvin George Gen. George to read John 424. Because these are foundational scriptures, on which we're building the great accuracy of God's Word. God is Spirit made it worship Him must worship him in spirit, right? God is Spirit. God is Spirit, we have one God, that's all since the early centuries, that is after Christ. Christian doctrine, in many instances, has taught that Jesus was coexistent with God, that Jesus, either in spirit or in some other form, was with God, from the beginning. The doctrines which hold or have held this idea, that God is Jesus, and Jesus is God, substantiate their beliefs by isolated bits of biblical texts, Genesis 126. This is their initial point of departure, where God says, Let us let us Genesis 126, make man in our image, and let them have dominion, the we and the hour are interpreted to mean God and Jesus Christ. But this scripture is no proof of Jesus's existence in the beginning. The first person plural, the pronouns, us and our are used to speak of the magnitude of the incident to which God related himself. A head of a political state, often uses the plural pronoun when speaking of himself in his official position. For example, James the First of England, who authorized the King James translation, declared transactions of state by saying, We The King of England, to this very day, Elizabeth the Second, uses the expression we the Queen of England. Elizabeth is not a weak but yet she speaks of herself in her position, in the plural in the same grammatical sense. The translators for King James employed the poor pronouns. When they said let us in Genesis one, make man in our image after our Like the Bible teaches that there is only one God and that this God was in Christ. Second Timothy, chapter five, verse 19. Reverend chrome you have it,
Mrs. George, Second Timothy five,
did I say Timothy? I'm sorry, Second Corinthians. Second Corinthians chapter five, verse 19. This God was in Christ. This is the essence of this Scripture.
God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them and have committed onto us the word of reconciliation. Right?
Now, I put three great truths together in this paragraph. So listen carefully. The Bible teaches that there is only one God that this God, however, was in Christ. And this is the scripture from Second Corinthians. Also, that God is Spirit, which we read a while ago from John 424. Mrs. George read God is a watt, and they that worship Him must worship Him, God who is Spirit IN TRUTH. Now, the third great truth is that God is eternal. Hebrews chapter nine, verse 14, Mrs. George, please. Hebrews 914, how much more shall Blood of Christ into eternal Spirit offered Himself without bought to God for you, for your conscience, right versus the living God? All right, read that. Now again, the eternal spirit is your emphasis there and those other references to God, once more, Hebrews 914 is a tremendous scripture, nor shall the blood of Christ who through the eternal Spirit, offered Himself without spots to God, heard your conscience from dead works to serve the living just serve the living God. See, He is the eternal Spirit, who is God. Jesus Christ was born. Matthew, chapter one, verse 80. Now that birth, that birth of Jesus Christ was on this life. Now that birth, Matthew 118, the word birth is the Greek word spelled G and N, E S is good naces. This is the Greek word, je e n, n e s, I S, that's the word for birth. This has been transliterated in our King James Bible or any other Bible in the first book of the Bible called one. Genesis, this, this Greek word literally has been transliterated into our Bibles in the word Genesis, Genesis. This word game nesis. However, is a compound word. It comes from the two words gain O G, and O Guennol. And from the other part of the word that makes it up is nasals. And E is O S gain Oh gee, no, and nasal gain. naces is the result of those two words a compound word. The word gain all means beginning. The word nasals means Island. Island, something separate from the main body at 13, six Reverend Chrome
and when they have gone through the aisle under pathos,
right when they've gone through the aisle onto what the word aisle is this word nasals. The last of the compound of Genesis islands, an island is something separated from the main body, right? If it's attached to the main body, it is what? A peninsula, right? But an island is something distinctly separated and yet it may belong to another to the same country. Right. Boy, this word geeignet says is tremendous. And it's up there in Matthew wonderfully if you want to Other references where you could check them, I'll give them to you. You need not look them up at this time. But it's the word for Ireland use the same word used in Acts 28 one, verse seven, verse nine and verse 11. The word gay no means beginning. Remember, Jesus Christ them, according to Matthew 118. Now that birth, that birth, Matthew 118, that birth, Jesus Christ then had a one beginning. And that beginning was named Sose. Independent, distinctly separate from what? God, that's tremendous. You got it. The word birth, in Matthew 118, sets all back great truth like a diamond. Jesus Christ was born, God is eternal. God is from the beginning. Jesus Christ was born, he had a beginning. But that beginning of Jesus Christ, His birth was also nasals, meaning he was independent, distinctly separate from God. In the Gospel of John, the first chapter of John has been misread and interpreted as follows. In the beginning, was Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ was with God, and Jesus Christ was God. This is not what that verse says in John one one. For John one one reads very plainly, in the beginning was the one the Word and the Word was with God. And the word was what got the question of John one. One is, who is the word? Or what is the word? Genesis one one, states very plainly, in the beginning what God God alone then was from the beginning, therefore, it is God, who is the word of the Gospel of John, verse one. In the beginning, God, the Word How does God who is Spirit, communicate with man who is flesh, human beings communicate with each other, by way of symbols, via a spoken word, pictures or sign language. These symbols, communicate ideas and thoughts. But spirit cannot communicate with mind. If cannot communicate with the senses, or with reason, as they are two separate and well defined categories, spirit and flesh are two different realm. And each one must stay within its own boundary. Spirit can communicate with spirit. And flesh by way of its five senses can communicate with the natural and material realm only. How then does God overcome these communication barriers? He doesn't need a three fold way. God who is Spirit manifests himself to men in the flesh in this three four ways, one, by way of the spirit,
two, by His written Word, and through the spoken words of the prophets, three, by his word, which is his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, God to manifest himself in the world of the flesh, had to come into concrete form, four senses to recognize God gave the revealed word. So that natural man by his natural faculties, might be able to understand the communication from God. When John one one says, And the Word was with God, the verse refers to both the written word which has come to us as the Bible, and to his created word which is known to us as Jesus Christ. If in John one one, the word revealed, were placed before the word before the word word. In John one, one, the verse would be precise and biblically accurate. In the beginning was The word God, and the revealed word was with God. The question is How was this word with God? The Word was with God in His for knowledge. God is omniscient, plus, knowing all things he knew from before the foundation of the world, that when man was for made and created, that man would see, he knew from before the foundation of the world that Jesus Christ would come through the man he knew from before the foundation of the world, that man would be born again. He knows our end, as well as our beginning. This is what John one one literally says, the revealed word was with God in His foreknowledge. And the revealed word was later to be manifested in writing as the Bible and in the flesh, as Jesus Christ. The question then, is how was Jesus Christ with God in the beginning, in the same way class, that the written Word was with him, in Gods for knowledge, God, if God knew that Jesus Christ would be born, and that he would redeem man, from the beginning, Jesus Christ was with God and His foreknowledge. As we, the chosen of God, today, were called in Him in His foreknowledge. He Feagins, one four says, According, as he Ephesians, one four, According as He, God has chosen us, in him, in God, before the foundation of the word, the word God, who is Spirit plus, to manifest himself in concrete, was pleased to give us the revelation of Himself, of his mind and of His will, in words, He revealed Himself through the Word through the Word. And the Greek word there that they use in John is the word Lucas ello, G, O S, Locus. God's communication as the locus came into manifestation in the census realm. When holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, the record that's given in Second Peter chapter one, verse 21. Then when the fullness of time came, Jesus Christ, who was God's communication of himself in the flesh, was born. John 114. Will you read it, please? Mrs. George, and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. And we beheld his glory in the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, the Word was made flesh. The Word was made flesh is the conception and dwelt among us, is the birth. He could not dwell among us until after the conception. And it is he who has declared him then the clarification on this subject continues as follows In John chapter one, verse two, the same was in the beginning with God, the same the same month, while the same is the same reveal word which was with God in His foreknowledge from the very beginning. This is a repetition of what you just read, and noted in verse one, then why the repetition, to establish what has been said. Whenever God doubles the statement in the word, the reality of it is established. No, Genesis, chapter 41, verse 32, Genesis 41, verse 32, Reverend Chrome
and for those who dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice, it is because the thing is established by God and God will shortly bring it to its established
by hope. And it will shortly shortly is the word immediately pronto bumps right away quick. It's going to come to pass right now real soon. It's established. And this is why it's used twice in the Gospel of John in verse one and verse two. The words the same, a verse to this truth concerning the revealed word is so great, so magnificent and so wonderful that God has it written twice just to emphasize and indicate, definite establishment of the truth of John, one one. The preposition with. The same was in the beginning with God. The preposition with in verses one and two of John, chapter one further confirms this whole truth, and the Word was with God. The same was in the beginning with God. The Greek word used for width is the word posts, spelled G R, O S, this is the Greek word close for width. There are a vast number of different Greek prepositions translated with, but only prose could fit here. If this particular preposition, were not used in this verse, the Bible would fall apart. prose is that important? Truths means to gather with and yet having distinct independence. Almost the same usage of this preposition as we had of the word, God naces Loligo. With God in His foreknowledge, and yet, distinctly independent of this preposition, post, means together with and yet having distinct independence, the revealed word was together with God, and yet distinctly independent of him, together with God in His foreknowledge, and yet distinctly independent, that takes all the guesswork out of John chapter one verses one and two, makes it logical, and in order with the laws used in language, as well as with the whole word of God, in the beginning was the word God, and the revealed word was with close God, that is with Him in His foreknowledge, it independent of him, and the Word was God. The same revealed word was in the beginning with posts God, now wonderful. Verse two literally could read the same word, the written word, the Bible, and the word in the flesh, Jesus Christ, we're in the beginning with God. The following scriptures, will enable you to more fully understand God's communication demand, by way the prophets who gave us the written word and by His Son, Jesus Christ, who was sent by God. In Psalm 107, verse 20, we read, He God sent his Word, by way of the prophets to heal them. In John, chapter five, verse 36, the Father has sent me, John 536, in John 537, and the Father Himself, which half what sent me and in 538, of the Gospel of John, and G, have not His word abiding in you, for whom he had sent him, he believed not. And in John 17 verse three, the Gospel of John Chapter 17, verse three, that they might know the, the only true God and what Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. Those few scriptures should just help to clarify our understanding of God's communication, demand, by way of the prophets, through His written Word, and by way of His Son, Jesus Christ. Then back to the Gospel of John, our research then in the first chapter, verse three, all things were made by Him, God, and without him, without God, was not anything made that was made. You must always continue to remember that only God was in the beginning as stated in Genesis chapter one, verse one, God was the sole mover, all things were made by Him by God, and without God was not anything made that was made. In John one four, in him in God was Light,
Spirit, God is spirit, John 424 and the light, the spirit was the light of men. What was this light, light, which was in God and which was the life of men. This life was the Spirit of God, which is the light of men. Given in concretion, this Spirit of God was upon set and all the prophets who spoke and wrote God's mind and will. Finally, this Spirit was upon Jesus Christ Himself. Mark chapter one, verse 10. Mrs. George, please when you have the gospel of Mark chapter one, verse 10. And straightaway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens open, and the spirit, like a dove descending upon him and that spirit, this is God's Spirit descending upon Jesus Christ, when He came up out of the water after the baptism is adored. The Spirit of God was spiritual revelation from God, to men of God, not class, not everything that God revealed to the prophets was written. Prophets many times, only spoke the word of God and never wrote it down. Other times this prophet spoke, and it is written, some of the spoken words of the prophets we do not have. But the word we do have in writing was, and still is the light of men. For the prophecy came not in olden time by what the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Second, Peter 121. Not everything that God has revealed to man is recorded in the Bible, then, but that which is needed for our salvation, and for our learning is recorded. This is the meaning of the record in the Gospel of John, and the light was the light of men. The revelation came to men of God, who spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. They either uttered it verbally, or they made it known by way of writing God's holy men of God state. You might also note in connection with this revelation coming into concretion Second Timothy chapter three, verses 16 and 17. And Galatians, chapter one, verse 11, and 12. Reverend Crone, will you read Second Timothy, 316, and 17. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works, right? For the property for the prophecy is that's what verse 60. All scripture has given us all Scripture, we had prophecy from Peter long run all scripture is what we're following through all scripture is given by inspiration of God. And that's given by inspiration is God breathed. They knew stoves, this way down perpendicular from God demands. Now in Galatians, chapter one verses 11 and 12. It collaborates it and tells us that this is revelation. That's how we got the word, Mrs. George, but I certify you brethren, that the gospel which was preached a me is not after men, or I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ, but by revelation from or of Jesus Christ came by revelation. To continue back in the Gospel of John now, we know in verse five, John one, five, and the light, the light, who is the Light class, God is the light. You better look up First John, the first epistle of John chapter one, verse five, in connection here with this, First John chapter one, verse five, Reverend Crone.
This then is a message which we have heard of him and declare unto you that God is light, and in him is no darkness. God is what? light. God is light. First, John one five. Now in the Gospel of John chapter one, verse five, it says, And the light God shines in Watts, darkness and the darkness, calm free handed? If not, how did the light shine in darkness before the coming of Jesus Christ, by way of men of God, who spoke or wrote God's mind and will. The written word, even in this day continues to shine in the darkness of this word. Darkness cannot bring forth light, neither can darkness overcome it. If one light, one small candle, or the darkness, cannot overcome this light, one light is powerful enough to penetrate under dispel darkness. So also is God's revelation class of Himself in His Word, that's why it says, and the darkness, comprehend, if not. Then we read in verse six, there was a rose, a man sent commission, from God, whose name was John, the same. John came for a witness, to bear witness of the light, God that all men through him, John, might be a key John was not that light, Don, but was sent to bear witness of that. Light. God. The ministry of John is given in those three verses, six, seven and eight. God commissioned John for a special purpose of bearing witness. He came specifically to carry forth the sender's God's message. In verse nine, we read, that was the true light, God, the true light, which comp which lighteth every man that come into the Word, God is the true light. How does God light every man that comes in the world, by His revealed Word? How he likes, God's revealed Word, continues to live every man even the unbeliever. Nope, second Corinthians chapter four, verses three and four. Mrs. George, chapter four, verses three and four. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that our Lord, In whom the god of this world has lived in the minds of them would really not let the light of the glorious gospel of Christ with the image of God should shine on to them. Right, the light of the glorious gospel. This light is how he likes every man, even the unbeliever. Without the true light God in the world, there would be total impenetrable darkness. The focal point of these opening verses in the Gospel of John, set before us with utmost clarity, the centrality of God in all His moving in history, as we noted, with added emphasis, in the following verses, beginning with verse 10. of John one, He, God was in the world, by the reveal Word, and the world was made by Him, God, and the world knew him, God, not key God came unto his own Israel, by the reveal word, spoken and written, and in Jesus Christ, and His own Israel, received him the revealed word, both spoken and written, and Jesus Christ, not.
But as many as received Him, God, by the revealed word spoken and written and in Jesus Christ, to them gave he God. Power, exudes the, to exercise the privilege to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on unto his name. namesake, Jesus Christ. A literal translation of verse 12, would be but as many as well according to the revealed word of the Prophet, and Jesus Christ to them. God gave the privilege of adoption as sons of God to them who continue believing unto the name of Jesus Christ. The word on that verse is the preposition, ice. He is or as he is. That's the preposition that choose their meaning unto Euclid, the mathematician, use this word ace, to mean the distance. Listen carefully, the distance from a starting point, to the point at which one wishes to arrive. This is its usage in this verse also, onto them who continue believing unto In other words, continually continue to believe on his name. Israel remained as adopted son, only as long as they continued believing. The Israelites were not sons of God by birth. But when Israel believed unto as his name, God adopted them as son, even to them that believe on his name. This refers to the name, which is above every name. And he, Jesus Christ, was the name sake of God. Which name relates back to the source of all life, which is God. Verse 30, John 130, which, who was born can see, not a blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor a man but of God, the first word which is also the word who, who, the namesake of verse 12, and the namesake of God, a verse 12 Is Jesus Christ. The word Born is the same word as the word begotten, who was born begat, not a blood. You and I are born of blood, all Israel was born a blood. In Hebrews, it says, to 14, the children are partakers of flesh and what blood, the only one class who did not partake as the natural man in the life of the flesh is Jesus Christ. Therefore, John 113 refers only to Jesus Christ. It was Jesus Christ, who was born, not a blood, nor of the will of the face, nor of the weatherman, but born of God. Jesus Christ existence began, when he was conceived by God's creation of Jesus's Soul Life in Mary. God created brought into existence that soul life in the blood of Jesus Christ. There are a number of different Greek words used in the Bible for Will. Will wi ll the word used here is the word Salma, t h e l Ma. We have a very dear friend in the way ministry named Salma. That's the Greek word Salma nor of the will, Selma of the flakes Salma means to desire or anticipate, but not to determine.
Tremendous in this verse. Selma is a wonderful usage far beyond what we realized when we first read it, who is born not a blood, nor of the Thelma of the place, nor have the Thelma of man. Man might desire or anticipate the Christ, but man could not will determine Jesus Christ birth. Man could never say, now I'm going to produce the Christ, because Jesus Christ was not born, according to the will, that Thelma of the place. Every woman had the physical potential to bring forth the Christ. The will of a human being, however, could not determine the bringing forward for Jesus Christ was not born by man's well. He was born by the will by the determination of God Verse 14, the Gospel of John chapter one, and the word, the created Word, Jesus Christ was made flesh, the conception and dwelt among us, is the delivery nine months later, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. We beheld, intently observed, his God's glory, His greatness, by way of Jesus Christ, who always did the will of the Father. These references, I will simply note here, because I do not care for you to look them up here, but you ought to have them at least, John 434, John 638, John 829, and Luke chapter two, verse 49. Jesus Christ in the flesh class, declared God unto mankind, we just read this. And in verse 18, of John one, he has declared him I want you to look up and read for me, First John, chapter one, verse two, the Epistle of First John chapter one, verse two, Reverend Crone, please.
For the life was manifested, and we have seen it and bear witness, and show on to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested onto us, right,
manifested in hope, Jesus Christ, manifested, it was seen it was shown for Jesus Christ, the Promised One was the only begotten of the Father, because Jesus Christ is the only one for whom God ever created Soul Life, in the womb of a woman. This is why John 118 reads, No man have seen God at any time. The only begotten, which is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared. exago my maid know him. Whenever you read in the Bible in the bosom of the Father, it always means love, comfort and risk in the bosom is an oriental idiom. Nope. Second Samuel chapter 12, verse three, and I think, Luke 1622 I'll give you the other references, Isaiah 4011, and John 1323. But we will read Second Samuel chapter 12, verse three, Reverend Chrome was on the other one. All right, do you have second segments? Yes. This is George 1223. Let the poor man had nothing say one little ewe lamb, which he had brought and Nourished up and grew up together with him and with his children, and did he took his own meat and drank of his own cup and lay in his bosom and was under him as a daughter. It lay in his lap booze voice, you would think that he slept with that cheap every night? No, no to lay in the bosom is an Orientalism, meaning, the nearness, the love, the comfort, so forth. And the other reference I wanted read was Luke 1622, Reverend Chrome.
And it came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's Supposedly, the rich man also died and was buried,
carried into Abraham's bosom, the comfort, the rest, the peace that goes with it. If one said that Jesus Christ was in the foreknowledge of God, meaning in the bosom of the Father, the expression is perfectly correct, because God is love and God knew what was coming, because of his for knowledge. Now, no man is seen God for God is Spirit, Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son, who was in the bosom of the Father, in the love and the comfort and in the rest of the father, who knew all that the Father who knew all this from the beginning, Jesus Christ coming may know the Father. In his study on one God, in addition to these opening verses, in the Gospel of John, we must also consider the Gospel of John chapter three, verse 13.
As we have already noted previously, Jesus Christ existence began when God created sole life in Mary. This conception is again referred to in John 313, which reads, and no man is has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven, came down from heaven, is the act of conceiving life in the womb of Mary for the Son of Man. Then Colossians chapter 114 to 18 contains a figure of speech which we must carefully note, if we want to have a clearer understanding of God's word, verse 14, of Colossians, one reads, In whom Jesus Christ, we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness. The word is remission of sin. who Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every preacher. God is invisible because he is Spirit, Jesus Christ was visible. And being in concretion, he did declare and make known the Father who is God. All language class is governed by law to increase the depth of an expression. These laws of both grammar and syntax may be decidedly deviated from these legitimate departures from the natural and ordinary fixed laws of grammar or syntax are for a very special purpose. They are to arrest our attention and cause us to take special notice. figures of speech are not a mistake in grammar or syntax, but a science whose laws and workings are unknown. Verses 16 and 17 of Colossians chapter one are a parenthetical phrase, a figure of speech by way of explanation. When a parenthesis is employed, one must proceed in is reading from the last verse word, preceding the parenthesis, got it to the first word after the parentheses, no thought continuity is lost. And the truth is quickly evidence. Reading from the last word a verse 15, directly onto verse 18. Without reading the parentheses, the verses 16 and 17, will give the following non parenthetical statements versity, who Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature, verse 18, and he, Jesus Christ is the head of the body, the church, the parenthetical verses of Colossians, 116 and 17 refer to what God does, verse 16, For by Him, God, were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are inert, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions, or principalities or powers, all things were created by Him, God, and for him, God. And He, God is before all things, and by him, God, all things considered. CO here were created. The people who say all things were created by Jesus Christ contradicts the first verse of the Bible when it says In the beginning, God created in John chapter 10, verse 30, we have another example, which has to be understood and noted carefully, where Jesus says, I am the father, are one. It has already been established that Jesus and God are not one and the same being Jesus and God. Were not one from the beginning, but they were one in purpose as Jesus Christ declared his father on earth, God and Jesus Christ you unity of purpose. It pointedly sewn in that Jesus Christ always did the Father's will. John 434 I'd like for you to read Reverend Chrome.
Jesus sets onto them. My meat is to do the will of him this time. again to finish his work,
right to make it to do the will of Him, God who sent me and John 530, read that Reverend chrome
I can have my own self do nothing as I hear, I judge. And my judgment is just because I seek not my own will but the will of the Father which has sent me
through he always did the Father's will. That's what I want you to know. I and my Father are One is always in the one minded purpose of God sending Jesus Christ. And in chapter six of the Gospel of John, Reverend Crone, verse 38.
Right came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Him the sentiment, right?
He always did the Father's will. And not only that, he also finished the work run to God had sent him. Hebrews, chapter four, verse three. And Mrs. George, would you read it please? Hebrews chapter four, verse three, four we have believed to enter into rest, as he said, as I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into My rest. Although the works were finished from the foundation of the world, right, the works were finished, because in God's foreknowledge, he knew Jesus Christ would come and completed in chapter 12 of Hebrews, verse two, Mrs. George, looking into Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, right. Go on, read the rest, sorry for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God, amen. He's the author and finisher of faith, which he did for God, he finished the work we're on to God had sent him. There are other references you might want to note which we're not going to read tonight, but John 536, John 17, four, and John 1930. And of course, you'll all recognize 1930 where Jesus said, It is the now in Hebrews chapter one, verses wanting to is another, he Roni ously, interpreted passage, which must be rightly divided in a study on one God. Hebrews, chapter one, verses wanting to God, who at sundry times, various time, and in diverse, very manners, ways, they can time pass under the fathers, by the prophets have been these last days, in this last time, broken on to us by his Son, whom he got half. In class, the word half is not in any critical Greek text, appointed air of all things, by for who also he made the world. Originally, God created all things to his satisfaction, knowing in His foreknowledge, that his only begotten son would enjoy those things which God had created for himself and for his appointed air. The word world comes from the Greek word meaning agents. It is for him, f o r. For him, that son, that the ages were made, not by him. It's for him. That's the preposition that you also note Ephesians chapter three Ephesians chapter three, verse nine. At this point for its substance, it substantiates the truth of Hebrews which we just read regarding one God and to make all men see, what is the fellowship, or Konomi administration of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world, have been hid in God, who created all things by watts, Jesus Christ, the words by Jesus Christ, in Ephesians, three nine, are not in any Eastern biblical texts that there is no problem. But in some of the Greek texts, these words are included with these words In the text, the preposition by would have to be rendered for which definition then also would be precise. First of all, remember, those words by Jesus Christ are not in any Eastern biblical texts, but they are in some of the Greek, the critical Greek texts.
Now if you want to leave them in that preposition by, only thing you need to do is translate it forward, same preposition, then it reads, it was rendered, for it would be for Jesus Christ, who God who created all things for Jesus Christ, and you still have no difficulty or problem. Christians who believe the Bible and rightly divide the Word, have the true word and as such, they will know that there is only one God, who is holy spirit, and whom Jesus Christ declared. And when we study closely, the word, we see how emphatically the word corroborates itself instead of stumbling over scripture, by a careful look, we see the precision with which God has revealed Himself to us in His Word, All scripture including Genesis one one, John one, one to 18, which we covered my new fleet, John 1030 Colossians chapter one verses 14 to at Hebrews chapter one, verses one and two. And he Feagins chapter three, verse nine, reveals the light of truth, which dispels darkness, that there is only one.
