Publication Date: 07-14-1968
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: mind, spirit, renewed, Christ, pray, spiritual, senses, title deed, life
Turning to Romans chapter 12. Tonight please before you weren't converted, born again of God's Spirit, you want a man or a woman of only body and soul, the man of body and soul has a mind. Yes free wheel. Everything that ever comes to that human mind comes over one of the other the five categories of five senses seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, or touching. Now when you were converted foreign again or saved when you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior believed God raised Him from the dead. You receive the Spirit of Christ within but your mind was not affected. The moment you were born again of God's Spirit, you still have the same mind that you had one second before you were born again. If you have never had anything, there is one word used in the Bible with a mathematical exactness and without scientific precision, which God uses over and over and over again to describe the reality of bringing into concretion bringing into existence, that which has never been before and that is the word create. Whenever something has been in existence, and man and debris to change his life, to tap into resources that are more meaningful, more in concretion, more definite, there is a word used in the Bible again, with a very great sadness and that is the word renew. You cannot renew an automobile tire recap it unless you first have the tire. You could not renew your mind had you not had a mind to begin with. Now there is one thing you cannot renew, and that is the spirit, because the Spirit never had to start with. Man is dead in trespasses and sin without God and without hope. He has a man of body and soul, but he does not have the Spirit of God until he is born again of God's Spirit. And no person is born again of God's Spirit until he is obedient for the record given in Romans 10 Nine, if I will confess with timeouts Jesus as Lord. And boy, father just again brings to my mind, the great reality of confessing with your mouth that Jesus is loaded, not to confess your sin. You can confess your sin to you're blue in the face, and still go home on site. Because you do not get saved by confessing your sin because confession of sin is works hard work. And the Word of God says we're saved by grace, not of works, lest any man should boast Roman, I mean that up. So we do not confess our sin, we confess the Savior from sin, the Lord Jesus Christ. And we confess with our mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in our hearts that God has raised Him from the dead at that moment were saved. And for God to save us, he has to do one thing, bring into concretions that which has never been in us before, which is spirit and this he has to create. Now, once you're born again of God's spirit, your body, soul and spirit, you still have a mind. Like you have a body. Now, this mind, after you're born again of God's spirits, can be renewed. And it's in the renewing of the mind that you have the key to power. If you want to tap in, you got to renew your mind. And this mind must be renewed according to the Word of God, and not according to what people say, or some theologians or some preachers or anyone else may talk about. It's got to be according to God's rulebook his regulation. Because this is what we play the ball game by, not by what people say or think or do. Now Jesus Christ was God's plan for the bridging of the gap between the natural man and the spirit were you and I know by believing that which is spiritual, but it's demonstrated in the Nazrul round when we act upon it. Reason holds The same relation to the spirit that the body does to reason. If reason is allowed to rule the spirit, and it takes control over the spirit and Devers to control the spirit, it always takes the whole spiritual world and desecrates it.
Likewise, when the body, the place that senses, the passions are allowed to rule beyond reason, it makes the body sort of a bad situation, bless your heart. It just takes it throws it out of the way. The reason is golf. This is why reason holds the same relation to the spirit that the body does to reason. Unless you reasonably take care of your body, and you keep it under control, your body, your, your passions, your the place, the five senses will just drive you. And if you take your reason, and endeavor to put the spiritual things into practice, according to your reasons, you will always desecrate the spiritual things, because you'll bring them down, way below par. Now, you and I can know that God is Spirit. God does not have a form, you can't see, hear, smell, taste or touch God, where God is spirit, a spirit have no form or colinas. That which you can see, hear, smell, taste, or touch has to be in concretion in the census realm. It has to be something that you can handle. Like I just, I just finished teaching the renewed mind in the class this last week, because it's in the foundational class. But I didn't teach it too well, because I knew it was coming up in class. And I didn't have too much time that evening anyways, teach it but I taught it well enough that everybody understood it. But you see, God being spirit can only speak to what he is. It's a lot like things in the natural realm can be known by the five senses, things in the spiritual realm can only be known by the Spirit. They never overlap. It's like in the Gospel of John, that which is born to the flesh is what and that which is born of the Spirit is what they never overlap. East and west between never meet. Those two never meet. Now always stay just like that. For that which is born in a place is going to remain place that which is born of the Spirit is going to remain spirit. Now God is spirit. A spirit has no form, or totally not subsequently, and has no holiness either a spirited spirit. Now God is spirit, he can and does reveal and impregnate our spirits, which is His Spirit in us when we are born again, with truth, even as the natural world can impregnate the mind with facts. The difference between a fact and a truth is that a fact is that which man does. Anything that man does will always be a fact. Everything that God does will always be a truth. Truth is that which eternally is, it's the same yesterday, today and forever. It does not change no matter who says where it said or where you find it. If it's truth, its truth. And truth never need any defense. His own defense errors needs defense. If you tell the truth, you can forget about it. If you tell a lie, you've got to defend it. Because you've got to remember it right. So the next time somebody asks you how long the fish was, it doesn't grow longer all the time. Right. This is why a fact is something man does. Truth is that which always is eternal, and it comes from God. And the greatest realities in life are not in the natural realm. They're disparate for you. How can you evaluate love? You may have experienced that but how are you going to describe it? How are you going to put it into a test tube? As I told you last week and take it to the laboratory and put a bunch of burner on there and have hot love? It's impossible. You can't do it. Why? It's like the electricity like light, all the greatest realities in the world today cannot be analyzed. This is why spiritual realities must be ascertained. And knowledge, facts may be analyzed. You cannot analyze spiritual realities, these must be ascertained.
Thanks knowledge facts can be analyzed. You could take this particular thing along the way song sheet into a laboratory, you could analyze it down to the minute it's detail, you could find out where everything came from. But you can't take the love that you have in your heart. You can't take like many of the other great realities into a laboratory and come out and tell us what's in. This is one world in which we live, but the spiritual is superior to the material. This is why in Hebrews 11, by the way, if you want a very wonderful, literal translation of it, from the original Greek, give it two years I have it in my mind, because I pretty well know this one for memory because the word could so many years ought to be catching on pretty soon. Hebrews 11, one, believing it's a title deed. Your things prayed for the evidence, they are yours before they are seen. That's the literal translation of Hebrews delivered one. Believing believing as the title deeds, to the things prayed for your title deed, the title deed does produce the automobile. Right? You can't ride up here, from your head place of living in Indiana. Other places that you people are from tonight, you couldn't ride here to the headquarters on the title deeds. Well, take a phenomenon to do it. But generally you fellows wouldn't arrive this way. Okay. So, keep the bit in the mouth please. Now. But the title deed, that title deed is your proof. The title deed is the evidence. The title deed is the evidence of things prayed for.
It is the reality that you got it before you get it. You have the title deed, you take that title deed and you get your automobile. You don't write the title deed, you're right, the automobile. Believing is the title deed, to things prayed for. It's our title deeds. It is the evidence, the deed is the evidence that these things we have prayed for our hours before that come into concretion. There are two kinds of knowledge in this world. One kind of knowledge, deals with information gathered via the five senses. And this knowledge is called natural knowledge. There's another kind of knowledge in this world which is gathered by way of the spirit by the operation of the manifestations of the Spirit. And this is called spiritual knowledge. It's been difficult for most men to learn the spirit side. Because we have become so acclimatized to live by our senses. That we just have had a great difficulty to learn to live by the Spirit. And the one of the great reasons we've learned had a difficult time learning to live by the Spirit was nobody taught us that's one of the reasons it isn't that we wouldn't have done. It isn't that we were not hungry. We just got turned off with all the baloney everybody was handing out and nobody was really teaching us how to tap in. That's right. I have a glass of water up here in the at the teaching platform tonight. Now, this thing here is here and I can tap into it. I know how but if I did not know it was available, or I did not know how to drink it. I couldn't satisfy a thirst if I had one. One of the curses of our day and of our time is that nobody is teaching us basically how to tap in they just tell us we ought to but they don't teach us how to That's right. Do you tell a fella to pray delete blue in the face, you don't do anything but to discredit my talent, and do any good to tell anybody to pray, try to teach a person how to pray, then we're helping them if they want to pray, they can write. And if they don't want to, they don't have to. Like telling a person you ought to get saved, that doesn't help anybody. Teach a man how to get saved, he wants to get saved, he can get saved. And if he doesn't want to just go straight down. That's all it's to it. Try, you don't have to shove anything down anybody's throat. The reason people are always shoving something down somebody's throat is because they want to fossilize them, put them within that little bracket, so they can lord it over. Good Lord never made us this way. He made us to have God's word and to become spiritually alive. And you can tap into spiritual realities with the same existence that you can tap into any sense knowledge, facts, in concretion in our world, because you can develop your spiritual perception beyond anything that you have ever dreamed of. It's there, it's latent, its potential. But you're going to have to learn the principles, and then utilize the principles to bring the spiritual perception, more efficaciously into concretion in your life, day after day and week after week. This is why, as I have said, it's difficult to MIT for men to learn the spiritual side because they've lived by their senses so long. They know how to evaluate things in the census realm, but they do not know how to evaluate things in the spiritual realm or how to receive it. And so spiritually, we just go through life empties, we talk about it. But we know that we have not really tapped in. When your mind when you were converted, as I said, you had a new spirit created within you, but the mind was not affected. Everything that ever comes to the human mind comes by way of one or the other of those five senses, seeing hearing, smelling, tasting or touching, the spirit is created within you, but the mind must be renewed, that senses cannot be renewed. But the senses can send the information to the mind that will renew the mind.
If you want to renew the mind, you apply the same principles on the renewing of the mind from the spiritual side that you would apply in any other segment or category of learning. You renew the mind by changing what you're feeding on. Right? By the information that you send up here. If you do not like the crop you're reaping the only way you can change the crop you're reaping is by changing the seed yourself. Right? You don't like your brand to onions, or wild oats change the seat. So we can do right? Sure, right. Same thing in the spiritual world. If we're not satisfied with what we're tapping into, we just got to change a little bit. And your will determine exactly what you're going to do in the category of the renewed mind. How far you're going to go with God will be depended on how far do you want to go? Do you will to go. Under the true God, nobody ever oversteps your will and you by the freedom of your will make up your own mind as to how far do you want to get renewed mind is the key to power in every individual believers life, and in Romans 12, you didn't think I'd get through it. Some of you have known me long enough to know that it's always got to get there.
Because the whole principles of our teaching ministry are dependent specifically upon the dynamic and intimate accuracy of God's wonderful words. Verse one of Romans 12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies, of whom, God that you present your body's a watt, living sacrifice, a living sacrifice, not a dead sacrifice, but a living sacrifice. I've told you before, I'm sick and tired People who say Why die for the Lord never did anything anyways might as well die dies posed to begin with. But he really never asked us to die for him that he, he said to be watched for Him, live for him. You can't help him any of your dead. That's right. He asked us to be a living and alive sacrifice. And alive sacrifice is one who has willingly made up his own mind to sacrifice himself for others that say to Melia like a mother sacrifices herself to bring for the baby every time she does. We in the spiritual realm have to tap in by the freedom of our wheel big enough that we come to the parting of the ways where we will make up our mind, we're gonna stand for God. And boy, I wish the people in the way Ministry made up their mind. People make up your mind, whether you're going to stand for what the way ministry stands for, or if you're going to play around in for Lord sake, if you're going to play around going somebody else's ballpark. That's right. You've got to get to the place make up your mind. Because the times too late, we got too much work to do. To mess around with people that do not want to be committed. We want to move fast, we want to move far. And we can't move fast and far when we just got people riding along in the trailer. We got to have the pellets pushing and pulling and getting the spark plugs in the engines and getting that thing rolling. That's right. But this again, is in the freedom of the world. How far are we going to renew our minds? Just exactly what does God mean to you? What does the reality of God's word mean to you? Is it what the Word says our attempt to quite get to the place and say, Well, that's what it says. But you just get rid of the but it's the God's word. And we have to come to the place that we stand put on it. No matter what anybody else says, If you'll do that, you'll renew your mind. And you'll really start walking and manifesting. Be transformed. Why? Because as it says, present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable under God, which is your religious service word reasonable in the original text is religious. And be not conformed to this world. You know how we get conformed to the world the same way we get conformed to the greater thing by what somebody else teaches us by what they tell us. We're all products of our aim. And we'd go as far as we are led, no man ever has gone beyond where he's led. The reason I am tonight what I am is because of where I've been live. The reason I believe what I believe tonight is because of what I've been taught. No man ever rises beyond what he's taught. No man can ever believe any bigger than what he's taught. And no man can ever lead you any further than he himself has gone. Remember Jesus his statement about it, the blind lead the blind, you both get in the ditch? Well, some of us been there a couple times haven't been life. We thought we were living and walking with people that had 2020 vision. When we found out it was almost zero, nothing or something they had, we ended in the same old ditch but God and His mercy and grace salt, the Wrecking Crew, come around, get a tail, we started again. And we finally got to the place of the great realization that unless you can handle this way to God and rightly divided and understand the great principles that are used here, every man is going to lead to downward instead of upward. Because this is the only thing I've ever seen, that takes a man up and up, way up. And we're in the greatest reality of truth. Therefore, he says, be not conformed to this world. Rugby was transformed, transformed.
Transformed. The word transformed here is the same word that's used in the gospels when it talks about Jesus Christ, on the amount of Transfiguration being transfigured before Peter and James and John. It's the same word, transfigured as the same word that's translated transformed here in Romans 12. To be transformed by one thing, get a new figure in your mind by one thing, by the renewing of your mind, by the renewing of your mind, that you might be able to prove what is that good and acceptable, and the perfect what will perfect what a God can never be proven? in any other way that by a man must be born again of God's Spirit and then renewing his mind, according to the greatness of the revelation and living it in time creation, day by day. Look at chapter 13, to room. Look at verse 14. Whatever we can put on cannot be as a category as a spirit, it has to be in the category of the mind. We put on put on the Lord Jesus Christ, well, where can I put him on, I can't put him on in the Spirit. For this bike race, there's only one place logically that I could put him on. And that would be above my ears in my mind. Put you on the Lord Jesus Christ up here in the mind, and make all kinds of provision for the place. And make no provision for the flesh. Do not make any provisions for the category of what the information by the five senses tells you. And I'll tell you why. Because the moment you start endeavoring to walk spiritually, in putting the mind of Christ up here, those five senses from the the experiences of the senses world will tell you that you're screwing. They'll tell you, you're nuts, that tell you your way out. That's right. Because these are the people you've lived with, these are the friends you've been in, in association with. You've been out in the world, and the world, and your friends there have permeated your thinking and your pattern in life. And therefore when you start putting on the mind of Christ up here, put on the Lord Jesus Christ up here. The census, by way of your past experiences will say to you, while that will work, it doesn't gel. Make no provision for what the census will be saying, what the place will be saying to you, you just put on Christ up here, make no provision for the Census. And pretty soon, things will start falling into harmony and alignment into patterns. And there'll be perfect patterns. Because you are absolutely in control of what you send to your mind. You make up your mind whether you want to put on the mind of Christ, or what do you want to send up up here, all kinds of provision for the place. Each person has to make up their own mind after they're born again. Any patience, Romans Corinthians Galatians, Ephesians, chapter four. Verse 22, that he put up, he put off, anything I can put on I can put off is in the category of spirit class. No, it's an a category, a lot words, words that you put up concerning the former conversation, the old man, you put up the old man, whereas the old man, he's in the mind, you know why it's called the old man. Because this one you have been developing this mind you have had, and you've been developing it from the day you've been born, physically the first time. But now let's say you're 18, or 20, or 25, or 99. And you get born again of God's Spirit. You have a new man in you, which is Christ Jesus. That's what the mind is referred to in the Bible as the old man. And that mind of Christ, which you can have after you're born again, is called the new man. We'll see it later on tonight. If I get around to it. It's in here someplace.
The former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful us, verse 23. And be what? Renewed, renewed in the spirit. The word spirit is the word life be renewed in the life of your mind. Now watch it. Verse 24, and that you put on that you put on what the new man you put on the new man, you put off the old one by putting on one, the new man, now you're putting on? Well, let me read the verse and then you can all look at me and I'll show you something, which after God is what? created in righteousness and true holiness. You talk about the accuracy of God's word, and its semantic usage of words. There you have got it. Look here. be renewed in the spirit or the life of your mind how you're going to do it. He says, by putting Oh, and up here, put on. The new man puts on the new man. What this is the old man. That's right. But now I'm going to put on the new man. which after God is created, created, created, in here, created in here in righteousness and true holiness, thoughts, the renewed mind. When Christ comes in, he brings everything that he is. And now that reality of Christ presence is spiritually within me. That's the new man. Now I put on up here, according to that, which is created in righteousness and true holiness here, that's what gets your back feet to track with your friends. That puts you in harmony and alignment. In perpendicular relationship. Try why various 25 3d software. Why, again, 24 class, you put on the new man here, quit strain, and it's trying to get rid of all the old. If you want to give up whiskey, quit forgetting about whiskey, just forget about it. If you want to get rid of a whole bunch of sins, forget about the sins, you know why the more you your work on get rid of your sins, the more you have to commit to keep them positive or something, right? Because you got a lot of reversed effort. And I know all that baloney. You want to talk about rationalism, and all the rest of it that won't help you much. Let's talk about how it gets the job done. already interested in fancy words and all these flowery things not going to help us we want the job done and we'll flower it out or do something with it. Let it bloom. Look, I do not get rid of my sin by magnifying my said, I do not get rid of my shortcomings. By dwelling on my shortcomings. I do not work in my mind to say, Well, boy, I got to quit that old sim. Because the harder I work on myself to quit it, the more I manifest it for a truck. That's like a fellow wants to stop drinking. The more he tries to stop drinking, the more he drinks. He tries to stop doing other things. The more he tries to stop the more he does. Oh, you know what? Guys, like the law, you're always getting what you're given out, you give out hell you're in it, give out love you're in it. You never rise beyond what you've given out. Like I've told you, I went through those years where everybody preached sin at me all the time. So every week you had to go out and committed so they could preach next Sunday. Again, you know, try to keep recurring. Keep alive with the thing I tried. If I preach send it to you tonight, you know what you're going to do this week. You can't go beyond what you're taught. And if you really believe what I taught you to have gotten commit a few so we could say the business. You see, you're always magnifying what you're giving out. Always magnifying in what you're giving out. Now we are to put on the mind of Christ. And if we put on the light here, the darkness disappears. I just taught this in the class last week and it's real simple. It's so simple. That you have to be stupid or dumb, stupid dumb is. And that's pretty stupid. All we did was turn out all the lights in the auditorium. Everyone up it was dark ideas. And as we had the lights all turned out, we were in the dark and I tamale. Let's pray like crazy to get some get some light in here by asking for more darkness to come. You know, introduce more negatives, more fears nor worry, more anxiety, stay up all night and worry about it longer.
You see, if we're ever going to renew our minds, we're going to have to put the mind of Christ up here. The MIND OF CHRIST up here. And as we put this up here, you quit steward and fretting about the past. Because as you introduce light, darkness will disappear. You never work on the darkness at all. When this darkness came into the room, we didn't pray. Let's get rid of the darkness by getting more darkness in all we did is I reached down under this teaching platform and I turned on my spotlight that's all that night. And when I turned it on, you know what happened to the darkness. It disappeared. You can take a little candle like this, and the room can be pitch black pitch dark. You do not get more light into that room by introducing more darkness You get only light into the room by introducing light. And when you introduce the light, you do not have to pray about the darkness. You don't have to argue about it already to get just leaves you. That's all. That's why in the category, the renewed mind is the key to power for the Christian believer. When we tap into those resources, and we renew our minds, then people's lives will begin to change. And to the end, they renew their mind they are changed into the end, they don't renew their mind that won't take long and short. That's why verse 25, I've always said God should have left out of the Bible, or given me the privilege to bring the scissors in and cut it out. Because I don't like let's read wherefore put away what? What I like that you know why I'd rather pray about it. It doesn't say pray about it. It says Quit lion. That's what it's in plain language, right? Put it away. Put it away. It doesn't say pray about it. It doesn't say get up on stage on your knees all nighter, sit someplace and cry or eyeballs out because you're such a big liar. That's right. Boy, this is terrific. Because it looks so religious. You know if we can stand someplace and pray all night, and we say Oh, Lord, you know, I'm a big liar. And Lord, you know, I like the trucks. That does not look religious. Why sure, but that's not the answer. Once you're born again of God's Spirit, you have Christ in you. Now you put him on up in your mind. You say to me, that's a job. Sure it's a job. Well, let me remind you of Philippians 419 I can do all things through Christ who does one thing one that don't tell me it cannot be done. So I put on the mind of Christ here and as I put it on here, I just realized, never pray about it just quit. Not the things it says in this chapter. Read it sometime. Look at verse 28. Let him not stole stay up all night and pray that he'll steal the Lord. Oh, Let him that stole the wad. Quit stealing, don't pay about it, quit it. Rather let him labor working with his hand to government will like this verse either. The things that is good and he may have to give that him that was needed. Sure. Verse 31. Look at it. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and evil speaking be put away from you. And be what kind one to another verse 32, tender hearted right? forgiving one another even as God for Christ's sake has lots forgiven you. Not something kind one to another tender heart that's renewed my that wonder the renewed mind is the greatest reality in the world. And the bishop was telling me again it's suppertime. He said boy that for you to have been guided to have a renewed mind camp is just unbelievable. But no other places the nation you can go to renewed mine tab you go to negative you go to suggestive camps and everything will work can you go into renewed mine camp? He said we should even next year have a clinic. I know what a clinic is. We'll talk about it see what guidance he has. I guess it simply means to rehab a camp but then you also have periods where people can come and we can go over the positive side so they can get rid of the negative so I believe that's what he meant for cleaning. Well, look at Philippians one verse in flipped into the den, chapter two
to Philippians verse five, Let this mind be in you which was also in Whoa. That'd be a good renewed mind, wouldn't it? Man to the end, I have the mind of Christ up here. Do I have my mind renewed? Definitely. He said, I always did my father's will. I and my Father are one. Boy, when we have the mind of Christ up here, we have the renewed mind to the end we have him up here in Colossians chapter three if he then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are aware about where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God sector affection on things above not on things were on the earth. For your getting your life has hid with Christ in God, when Christ who's who Life, who is our life shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in what glue mortified there for your members, which are upon the earth. fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil thank you for sin covetousness, which is idolatry, for which things six the wrath of God cometh on the children of one, just obedient, but I'm not a child of disobedience because I'm born again of God's Spirit. I'm a child of hope. That's why the verse seven says, in the which you also want some time when you want, lived in them, but now, but now that now since you've accepted the Lord Jesus Christ, and are BORN AGAIN of God's Spirit, now, since you have Christ within you put off all of these by putting Christ up in your mind, you're put off anger, wrath, malice was we built the communication, line up one to another, seeing that you have put up the old man with his wife, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge, after the image of him that created boy, boy, it's not something man at her job. You can know anything about language. And if you know anything about the reality of Christ, wonderful presence and power, man, oh, man, listen to it again. You don't have listened to it, don't even read it. Let me give it to you put off the old man with his deeds by going up, put on the new man up here, which is renewed in knowledge according to the image of him, that created him. And what is the image of him that created audio doe, John 424, DOD, his spirit. And he created in here, this is the image of him that created it here, you put on up here in knowledge, that wonderful knots, the renewed mind, that's what we're at camp for. This is why we're here the whole week together, you just live on Learn to live on top of the heap, to learn to live with an effervescence and with a glow, with an abundance with the wonderful presence and power of gold. By putting on up here the greatness of the reality of that which God in Christ created in here. The way of the renewed mind is a way of getting to the word you have to get this word accurately right late into your mind, you have to understand it, because you can't operate something unless you've got it. And you've got to get it and put it up here. This is why look at the next verse. In here where there is neither Greek Norwell circumcision or uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, where there is neither water or lack of it. footwashing or lack of it, beads or lack of it. This right, there is neither Jew nor Greek, circumcision nor what Alright, if that circumcision and uncircumcision you got water or lack of it, right? You got to push footwashing or lack of it. All the works of man, same category.
But Christ is all and it'll put on there for verse 12. as the elect of God, holy and beloved vows of mercy, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long suffering. See, this comes from within this is the image thing you put on up here, because this is what came wrapped up in that spiritual cellophane, when you were born again of God's spirits, so to speak, forgiving one another. If any man have a quarrel against any even as Christ forgave you, and above all these things, put on charity, which is the bond that which binds together that bonding element of perfect that wonder some of you may have seen the display they have along the secretaries mentioned of this particular scripture. You're at the gym. The word charity is the love of God and the renewed minded manifestation. Every time you read that word charity as the word of God pail from the Greek text, and it's something that I can do. God gave it to me first the love of Christ is within spiritually This is in His image. I put it on up here. This is like charity. It's always the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation. Of all these things put on the love of God in the renewed mighty manifestation, which is the bought the bond to perfection. And let the peace of God ruin your heart's desire which also you're called in one body and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly. In all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever you do in words or deeds, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by what him, whatsoever you're doing words are what dates you all in the name of the Lord Jesus. Because we have filled our minds with the mind of Christ, we have put price on up here. In here, God does it by grace. When you confess with your mouth, the Lord Jesus believe God raised Him from the dead, he puts it in here. Putting it on up here is a lifetime walk class. It's a discipline. It's something you just don't do overnight. But I want to tell you something, we can learn a lot more and go a lot faster than most people ever thought possible in the renewing of the mind. You may have spent 20 years to think and believe what you're believing tonight. Some longer. But searching we don't have to spend 20 years renewing our minds if somebody can point us to the word and we can read it for ourselves. And if it'll fit and we know it's true, then we can put it on just as quickly as we will to put it on. The key the power is the renewed mind. But in order to renew the mind, you must have knowledge you must have wisdom, you must have the will to do it. The desire because you cannot rise beyond what you will to do in your life.
