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.

The Gospel of Luke chapter four at least. I am sure that some people would perhaps wonder why Father inspired me to use this section of the Word of God. In this the opening, and the official dedication and opening of the lay course. To be real honest, I sort of thought about it a few times myself, I wondered why. But then I got to thinking, well, people have wandered about my life and my operation in the ministry. So many, many times. They wonder why I do certain things a certain way. And it's like I've said to our people, time and time again, to your friends, they need no explanation. Your enemies wouldn't believe it anyway. So you just walk with the greatness of the presence of the glory of the Lord and your life, and quit trying to explain everything to everybody. People said to me three years ago, when I first voiced this among a few people, they said, Well, they didn't think the core could be handled by the Wait a minute. They said it couldn't be done. Well, they said that about the film industry, too, right? They said we couldn't make the class on power for abundant living. So we did it anyway. They said the core couldn't you couldn't work a core like this in the way ministry? Well, we were here tonight, to prove everybody who has said that a lot. Because it's already a success. Because God did it. And when God did it, that makes him a majority. Now, this record and why God inspired my heart to use it on this great night is something I think you're just going to have to see the momentous greatness of it for yourself. First verse, And Jesus be full of a new Mahajan. Oh, Holy Spirit, returned from Jordan and was led by they got a capital F. That's real dabeli. The capital has never led him into the wilderness to be tempted other day a while anyways, he returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness. The first thing I want you to notice is that Jesus was not an empty. Jesus was just not a person floating through. It says he was full. He was an empty, he was failed. He was full of Panama, he only was full of the Spirit, he was full of everything God was able to give you. And yet, in spite of being told, he was led into the wilderness. Inside of the Corps, we're going to be full and yet you're going to find times that you are going to be exposed to the wilderness. And Jesus was not an empty. They never wasted time with empty, he's got fame. Satan is only concerned about hitting the big people. The ones that are whole don't want to have committed themselves those are the ones he tries to work on.
Versus Well, 40 days. He says he was tempted of the day. And in those days of eating nothing, and when they were entity afterward hungry 40 days he was tempted of the devil.
temptations will come no matter how full you are. temptations will be there. But temptation is not sin yielding to it is. And if you think for one minute that just because you've joined the core, you have dedicated your life for two years to the core, that Satan is going to let you alone, you've got another guest. He's going to do his best to get you out in that wilderness. And he's going to do his best to trip you up. Wherever he can, he'll do the same for me to try to break the coals. While I've made up my mind. He can't break it because God said it can't be broken when we believe God's word and we're going to believe. Verse three says, And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it'd be made bread, marvelous temptation. He was in hungered after 40 days and he said, you need a little bread. And the devil said, if you are such a wonderful son of God, If you're so full of God, why don't you make that stone during the brand? Jesus and 3d MC. The Reader's Digest says Professor sewing so same, the right reverence Oh no, my denomination. No, no, no, no. He said it is what? Well, where do you think it was written? In Playboy magazine? No, in the revealed word of God, right? In the scrolls that men of God gave, when they were fired by the Holy Spirit. That's what he was. It's written in the Word of God, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. The reply by Jesus was from the words. This is the call the reply, that's the call. It's the reply with the words, men will posit many questions, they will bring via man, many of these temptations could Jesus have turned that stone into bread? He could have if he had a lot. But he had 100 for 40 days. And Jesus could have said, Well, boy, I forgot somebody was younger. If you fasted for 40 days, then you get hungry or some another 15 minutes not gonna kill you. But for most people that have grabbed it, and said, oh, boy, I gotta have it now. You know, you see something at the store, and I got a habit. Now I'm already in debt over my neck, but I got to buy it now. None of us ever been through that. Jesus replied with the words, this is the core, you have got to get that word within you. So that when temptations come, and they'll always come by a people, basically, that you've got the answer that you can reciprocate with the Lord, not with your opinion, not with BP, where wills opinion, not with what your denomination says or mine. But what does. This is the goal. Man shall not live by bread alone. but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. That isn't quite what Luke says is, my mind is going back to Matthew and a few other places. It is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of the day, there's a lot of bread. And when our boys from a West Coast, talk about bread, you know what it means, though? Money. That's what they said all summer. They were here, you know. And they said, well, so and so they've talked about bread, okay, Man shall not live by bread, by dough alone by money, by food, physical food. But man has to live by the Word, every word, not just one word here, one word there another word there, every word of God. And people if there's ever been a time for somebody to get to the words, this is because we're living in an a fluid age of dope of breath. Buddha was a breath. It doesn't take much ability to date and make 810 $12,000 a year. Why even a tavern keeper can make that they don't take any ability. Because all you have to do is shake up things a little bit, pour it out of the right side of the cup or something. But so there is a lot of breads today, but very little bread of life, very little other way to God. Most people just talk about, but very little genuine word. doorway core is the word that's primary. Like a very sight. And the devil then did was took him up into a high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, all this power will I give thee and the glory of them for that is delivered to me and to whomsoever I will, I was all the kingdoms of the world who wouldn't sell his soul today, the average person for all the things in the world, most people sell it for a little section of a community. So don't say that. Or if I could just be the main man if I could be the mayor. or if I could come from a little hick town down in southern Ohio and get to be the great governor of the state of Ohio, I'll just sell my soul to anybody in Cleveland in the other place. And if I cold be the president united states, oh, why wouldn't? Jesus had the opportunity bigger than anybody? He said, all the kingdoms of the world and all the glory of them.
I'll give to you. Why didn't you buy it? Well, very safe to begin with, while very seven was the was the big push on it, if you'll do us, worship me, that was that all be done. Verse eight, Jesus entered into them, get thee behind me, Satan. For it is written, again. It is lots written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only. Not glory, not power, not prestige, not position in a community. Not whether they speak ill or well about. Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God in Him only shall follow us. That's the way it is what's written, I don't give a hoot what you think, or your opinions or your arguments. I want to know is it written, that I can read it line by line and word by word, and can I understand it? That's soy corn, it is written. Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shall sow worship, nothing to come ahead of the worshipping other true gods. That's why there is a discipline involved in the course, tremendous discipline. Verse nine, and take again, he brought him to Jerusalem, the great center of all religious movement, and he set him on a pinnacle the temple and said, If thou be the Son of God, you just cast yourself down from him, for it is threatened. And here the devil is quoting Scripture. He shall give it angels charge over the tricky space. Now, don't tell me the devil doesn't know the Bible. He knows more scriptures, and the average Christian ever gets around to thinking it because we never have a recovery program. As a Christian, we have a forgetful program. No recovery, no retaining in the mind of the greatness of God's Word. The old devil knows scripture. And he puts it in giant jump up brain cells, Johnny jump up, comes back with a little bit of scripture from this place, and from that place in Rome, behold, before you know it, they're not worshipping the true God. They're worshipping a false God, but they think it's the true God. But thinking doesn't make it so you label the canned pickles on the outside, you've got peaches on the inside, it doesn't change the fruit on the inside. The label doesn't rock your life. Well, we're very thin, or it is written, He shall give His angels charge over the to keep the and in their hands. They shall bear the Aplex at any time. Now even dash sigh little foot, not your head, get your feet relatively insignificant. Let's at any time you dice your foot against the stone, straight scripture. Jesus answering said unto him, it says Thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God. Do you like that one? That's really cool. Now shalt not watch him the Lord's acts of God, not the way cool could we sell our souls and have the power, the glory, the prestige, of could have done that on salary. But that's not what we sell our soul for. We dedicate ourselves that we can so give out God's word to God's people, that we need not tempt the Lord our God by flipping well finally in verse 13, it says, The devil had ended all the temptation he could pour on him.
What it is, he departed for are hid from him for the rest of his life. I know for a lot, little scenes. The next time he had a good opportunity was right back bugging him again.
And all through the words time and time again. Jesus always reciprocated with the word It is written, successful. Then there are two ways to handle the way that God Satan handles one way in here. Jesus handled it another. Now one or the other had to be wrong, right? You gotta make up your mind just because a man cloture script just because a man would carry the book under his arm. Or if he held it up here, and he said, This is what the Word says. Does that mean? It says it it'll, it could say it as the devil said it said it. But it could be taken out of its context and could not be written about it Ross just because you meet a scripture quoting preacher doesn't mean he knows a hill of beans in a hail storm about the accuracy of God's word, that trust and just because the man carries a book, or just because I lay it open before, just because I would read a section from the Gospel of Luke doesn't mean that I know at all what the word really says. There are a lot of different tests you have to put to it. And this of course, you all know from the foundational classes, how you have to test whether that word is rightly divided or whether it is whether it's just a bunch of baloney and hogwash were handed out or whether it's the greatness of God's wonderful mess with the devil quoted it. Jesus quoted one or the other had to be wrong
Wow best today you know where he was quoting from? You got a senator reference? Nope. Do Iran. Reason I know it so I looked it up. Oh, I do it around me. Tom came a little later. Quoted again. Look at Deuteronomy eight. Out of this came this great truth. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. And I said, this is basically the core. Now I can go back to its original use, they give you the picture out of which that great truth was born.
He says in chapter eight, verse one. All the commandments which I commanded, this day shall be observed to do that you may live and multiply, talking to children, that you may live and do lots, multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Lord's were under your pocket. Just walk in, take it. He's already given it to you said join possessive. And thou shalt remember very to all the ways, they mentioned the ways our chart remember all the way and see that before it had to be. Thou shalt remember all the ways in which the Lord thy God led the these 40 years in the wilderness when they left the humblebee to prove the to know what was in nine hearts where the DAO would keep His commandments or whether you're what or no. And he humbled me and suffered the hungry and fed me with love. Manna, which now newest not, neither did my father's know that he might make the to know the know that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word which proceeded out of the mouth of the LORD duck man was live That's what Jesus was quoting. The day he spoke to the devil, we read about Luke and by the way, it's in the fourth chapter Matthew two very cool. Guy Raymond. What's not old upon the I mean, dude, I'm still Deuteronomy eight. Die Rayment last not old upon the Neither did I put 12 These 40 years and they didn't even have foot powder they had no swelling of the feet, they walked. Well, sometimes they sat a lot in the dam a swelling there either. So it was just a matter of somebody was doing something for somebody must have been the God. He says in verse five, thou shall also consider in dinehart that as a man chasteness His son correct his son is the text. So the Lord thy God correct these cases they doesn't mean he beats the blazes out of people. Now where do you ever get that ideal? You heard that in the church? Well go back to Only one case means to correct doesn't mean to beat the life out of us. Therefore very sick. Therefore, thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to reverence respect have all for him the word fear for the Lord thy God bring us the, into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains, and depths that bring out a valleys and hills. That's something man shall not live by bread alone, but by law, every word which proceeds out of us, and if you live by that word, and really live by it, how about believing God for material things? Are there going to be there? I think what he says, he said, there's gonna be so much stuff in the ground soon jump out in a land of wheat and barley and Vine, big trees, pomegranates, land up oil, olive oil, honey, land we're in thou shalt eat bread, without scarce but not worthless. But without scarce. Somebody said, Well, how are they going to get their needs met? And of course, I don't know die, then you don't have any net? The simplest place to get out of it, isn't it? Oh, my goodness. The children of Israel weren't even born again of God's Spirit, they look forward to our days. They hadn't arrived at ease. And look what God did for them. Class is God's gonna do less for us in the core, oh, I should say not. You're going to eat bread. Without scarceness We're going to have plenty of bread. Thou shalt not like anything in it. Anything. Land, he said, those stones are iron. Look like stone with iron, and out of whose Hills out may have big white brass. When thou has eaten and are full, then thou shalt Bless the Lord thy God for the good land, which he has given.
and wonderful. He says, first of all, Man shall not live by bread alone by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, we proceed to operate at this light, then God brings the other abundance into. So when we manifest material poverty is simply because we aren't operating spiritual principles. In our individualized, impossible to operate the Word of God and not bring to us that which God it makes available to us. Or it's 11. Now he says, Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his luck, commandments and His judgment. And his statutes which I commend the this day. Lead for thou has eaten and artful and you build a goodly houses, and dwell serene. And when I have heard and I flocked and multiplied by leaps and bounds, and I silver and my gold is multiplied by leaps and bounds, and all thou hast is multiplied. Then nine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God which brought the force out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, who led me through that great and terrible wilderness. We're in where fiery serpent scarf rings jobs, where there was no water, who brought the fourth water out of the rock of Flint, who fed me in the wilderness with manners with my father's new not, that he might humbled me that he might prove the doozy good escalada RAM, and bow say and dinehart my power, and might have mine hand has gotten me this wad. Well, that's something you forget the Lord died God abroad. Boy, aren't they saying it today? Christian people at church people everybody says, Oh, it's my ability. I got the ability boy, I can do that job. I got that common boy. They just forgot. But very tasty and in contrast, thou shalt remember the Lord die was already a tea that give us the power to get well that he may establish His covenant which he swear on unto thy father, as it is this thing. That's wonderful. And it shall be, if thou do at all, forget the Lord thy God. And if you walk after other lords, and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that he shall surely perish. And the reason our people in our nation and our time are perishing, is because they're walking after other gods, they're worshipping other gods, they're thanking other gods for giving them strength and getting their wealth, and that the true God won't stand for. There's a lot of things men do, that just doesn't get God's dandruff up nearly as much as when you begin worshiping, and other God instead of the true God. Man, then you've had it with you, as the nation's which the Lord destroy us before your faith, so shall ye Perry, because he would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord, you're a lot. That's why I said to you, when I began tonight, that's the core of the purpose or the core is that the realization again, come into our hearts and love the people that man does not live by bread alone. but by every word, not just a word you pick out here in a word you pick out there, but by every word, which proceeded out of the mouth of God. Now the word of God is made up, or composed of the words of God. And this word of God constitutes the food for our minds to be renewed on the words. In our culture, in our time of guards diet, is recognized more and more as an internal as well as an essential thing to nutrition and proper physical growth. So I believe that the diet of the Word of God is required by men and women, if they want to have mature, spiritual body, so to speak. And the reason we are so emaciated and in poverty and manifest the same spiritually and nutritionally, spiritually, is because we have been living on the improper food or it's been the neglect of the Word of God. You learned those two points in the foundation of love.
I think the question that Phillip asked the Ethiopian eunuch outside of the city limits of Jerusalem one day the record is recorded in X and I'd like for you to turn to it please
act chapter eight act chapter eight verse 30. And Philip ranted directly to him. And he heard him read the prophet is is which is Isaiah.
And step onto the Ethiopian eunuch understand us rail, what bow was read it was the reading. Definitely, it's not a question of a man just reading the Bible.
Reading the word. And the question of us assimilating it, of understanding, it's not just a question of whether you ate seven loaves of white bread for supper.
But were you able to assimilate it and get a strength out of it? No, you just bought 10 times as much strength as you could have gotten if you did at 20 loads you just kill yourself. I never saw a lousy summer like this. Never in the history of the way ministers ever many white bread on the tables downstairs.
Next summer, there won't be any if I'm around. Or just just a silly little thing to most people's minds. I know it's silly. But so what is my outfit? On be silly, silly. Right, but I happen to know something scientifically. At any time you eat two slices of white bread and you eat mashed potatoes with gravy and a piece of pie. You gel more plain alcohol, Seagram seven crown whatever else. I can't think of any more bourbon or whatever it is. is then two ounces of straight alcohol. That's right. And those people you know that eat that way many times are the people that wouldn't think of going to the corner saloon and buying themselves a dream. But if you could see inside, what they've been eating about your practice the same alcohol. The reason they aren't, and many of them are tipsy, they get little wavy motions, you know, for me, right after dinner, they're not quite stable. They're manufacture this stuff. The boy wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole if the neighbor saw, I'm going to salute saloon and all the time. Well, you see, it's just not a question of do you. Under do you rent it? Do you assimilate it? Do you understand it? And people when you put poison in your body or get poisoned results, whether it's physical or spiritual? Now we've got to be stupider than stupid Domestos through, well, we're stupid. So we keep going on most of us with the same old society. We've been in a lifetime. And so we just keep going on with the same stuff. Not the way core way goes. So no, we're not interested in what society does. We're not interested in he if he has kingdom, the gallery the power of the, we're interested? Is it what the Word says? Is this the way God would have to walk that we can worship one God and He is the true God?
That's what freedom understand the swats I'll read it. Verse 31. And he said, How can I accept a man to guide?
Well, Holy Hannah, people, he just been in Jerusalem. That seed of the authority of all the theological brains and all the religion, right. He has been there for a great spiritual campaign. A whole week of his hearing was coming back from that great religious meeting, reading the Word of God. And Philip said, he understand what you're really tell I cannot. Nobody's ever taught me well, what did he go to the great service for in Jerusalem, if nobody could help him, he went for the same reason most of us keep going. Because we are born in a certain society, and we just keep going on and on, and on and on. And then someday, for some of us, Phillips comes along, and for us come along. We just don't run because somebody says that's a good place to go. We only run when we know it's the greatness of God's Word. Otherwise, we just came steel and have another pot of tea.
boilable. Man, what you couldn't do if I was a preacher without protest,
understand a solid reason why. I just, I don't know if I'm communicating. But if I'm not, you just have both ear bones. But, man, he's been in Jerusalem, which today would have been at the greatest theological seminary sat under the greatest theologians. And yet, he couldn't understand those. Some of your people been in church for 40 years, you don't understand it either. Matter of fact, I know people in church for 50 years don't even know Genesis is the first book in the New Testament
Well, what Tell me please what are you doing that if you haven't learned that much? Well, our great joy in the core is we're going to understand what we read and we're going to understand it so well that we can communicate it to somebody who wants to understand it. And if they don't want to understand it, we're not going to waste our time trying to hold their hands and cord them if they don't want to make you love that deal. Okay. It's a real romantic subject all the traffic when you sit down and think that thing through exactly what did God call it for? What are we here for? Where are we headed for fabulous? You see, our day for the most part, is just like the day of the Tower of Babel, or Babel eternity We get the word babbling from the word power of people. That's why when people just have the running off of the mouth, it's called a babbling. There we get it from the Genesis video. In chapter 11. There's just one verse I'm going to call to your attention in this chapters, maybe verse nine, therefore is the name of it called Babel, because the Lord get there confound the language of all the earth, and convinced the Lord scatter them abroad over the pesos. The Lord can pounded the language of all the earth. The reason the Lord can pani send him off here and people butts up against it. Remember, this and foundational class and class wide, it's all true. And there was a great confusion and a great compounding, he couldn't communicate. Well, you can hardly get to Christians today, to agree on things throughout the whole way to go. So we got a great power of Babel can do in the religious world in which you and I were brought up and in which we live. With God over 4000 different denominations in the United States. Somebody's got to be wrong. Maybe to Genesis chapter 12. Look at verse one. Now the Lord had said on to Abraham, get the out of my country, and from by kindred and from my father's house, onto a land but I'll show you now that the terrible request as to know Abraham to leave his dad, mom, leave everything behind, and go out into a country where he knew not whether he was going, but who had said to him what to do. The Lord. The Lord had said on to Abraham. And that's how I feel about the call. When the Lord said to me, that Cora was okay with him. That settled. I feel like old age, in many respects, I don't know what's out there, in that unconquered territory, but there's got to be a good territory. When he said to Abraham, you leave your family. I mean, you leave your father and you go out for the Kaldi, then you move out into a land with you don't even know where you're moving. Abraham moved over because the Lord told him to move and in a way for I've only moved at this time because Lord told me not because you people have sponsors not because everybody was standing behind us and saying this thing already go but because the Lord
verse for the Abraham said around know, Abraham departed out as the Lord had a lot broken under him.
And you know what's happened a little while he's wonderful, if you will. And Abraham was a young man of 23 times you can't teach an old dog new trick.
Abraham was powerful. When he finally decided he better move. Some old dog learned a new trick. That's why don't tell me you're too old to learn your USP.
You're never too old. You just don't want to and Yana God. Abraham was 75. And he left his home country he told his television that he got rid of all of his farming tools or whatever else he had done all his direct automobile, and he just started headed out. Or is it something just imagine that the body is good as no build an ark when it hadn't rained?
Then build it up on a hill the boom. We had very seven. And the Lord appeared on to Abraham and he said,
Abraham, are DeviceID will I give this land? And there Abraham built an altar under the Lord who was buried under him. That's pretty good. Abraham was told by God unto thy seed and that's God's gift. And Abraham built an altar. That's, that's that's all the work gets approved on that was the way they had done this Do and your worship the true God is our gift
God's giving us eternal life and all these other things is the very thing and there was a famine in the land and Abraham went down were you the easiest the third soldier in there for the famine was what grievious they're
gonna leave you the last getting tired quick Hey, there was a famine in the land whose land the land that God had given to her dumb bodies got to the wrong point all woman that was a fireman, a woman I think he was a paraplegic and gal was not much of a woman all he had was one low panel and he had two years of great famine and the oil in the park never rain land the Lord has spoken all over the place I've given you every place in the world that's gone up along the I've given a little old Simon comes on my phone a random heads out country you know floor anyway isn't quite It is a remarkable thing about very tangible they're known God never told him to leave the country. Just because a fireman comes you don't run out. Although firemen came one day that lasted a little guy for three years didn't rain for three years. Matter of fact the Bible said it was the driver wasn't even in for three years. And when you do not do anything for three years
they will profit hightail it out because I think it was a you have a little beat up about situations right now. And you send out if FDR believe they will all probably have found a little Oak Brook. And he thought down the floor because I was looking for one grade water to drink and the Lord saw that the Catholic priests and was good and that the presentation was good. Really had me read why we've got the Dr. Malloy you've gone over there we got PD, never one to the Lord leave him without an abundance. And ladies and gentlemen, I want to tell you what an abundance is good health. Good sound mind that will always ask why that's abundance. The idea that men have today about abundance is not anything but greed primarily the don't
boy as long as you and I have good health and sound money we're rich. And then they have a lovely place to sleep is not wonderful I think every night boy when I can lie down in some places peace and quiet and just relax. get quiet. Boy I just thank the Lord for good boy the whole thing came along and all Abraham had forgotten that the Lord he said the lions over the Lord the Lord opened the windows I have an important article for all Abraham's and all the rest of people are moving out man apparently gone I gotta get it again remember God didn't tell him to leave the promised land he left on his own. But I got that even while he's out left field. Remember Paul, the Lord did the best he couldn't take away your graver empty and old Avon. Finally, in verse one, he comes up out of he and his wife and all that he had and a lot when were they in the south country. And old Abraham was very good with silver and gold before he went on to the place of the author wow and he went on his journey from the south, even a Bethel unto the place where he had been asked to go Dominique, and he finally comes he's thinking that he goes back to things like going out because he can never let start with because I've ever come back where his pain has been at the beginning when God spoke to him between Bethel under the place with which he had made they're at the place and their Abraham gunky stances and he calls on the name of Allah had he done this back in chapter 12 He never left and Gandhi people you've always got to come back to the same place you're left to start out again right if we go out left field I got come back like remember the foundational class the difference between remake and then from there we try to drive a horse back to the same hole he came out
they pre tried to drive somebody else who seems nice last night but they put barbed wire in the hole or maybe Harry Potter people are going to buy why God brother Harry didn't know what we got 1520 more out there in the past but they multiply quickly. Anyway very fine. And lot also, you know we went with a brand he had floxin Virgin tin very thick and the land was not able to bear them that they might do all together for their substance was so they couldn't do all together and all the cows couldn't have enough heat. So there was a strife between the herdsmen neighbor and callin cattle not between neighbor and a lot higher turbine and very fake Abraham said on the lot low let there be any strife I pray to between me and Wii U and I don't want to fight that then any fight between your husband or my husband but we're brothers if not the whole land before separate therefore I pretty easy from me. It's I'll take the left hand and upper right it's how to park the right or the left and lot lifted up his eyeballs that that very pan boy just did and lot lifted up his eyes and he got a smelly voice and a big hole out there where the plains of our garden and the grass was like the timber was beautiful and wheat was 75 bushels an acre and all Locke looked at that and it was well watered do though you went well watered everywhere before the Lord deployed cotton might even have been God your Lord. Though the land of Egypt has not commented on verse 11 Then lock kills him all the planes that Jordan and lodge journey and they separated themselves the one from the other works well. And Abraham dwelt in the land of Canaan a lot throughout the cities of the plane and he toured a lot that was a lot when a man moves into Saddam Saddam gets into demand can't get in any other way. Oh lot move towards Saddam. And when he moved toward Saddam, Saddam got into a lot. It ruins almost ruined his life for it. You get the word sodomy from the past his eyes that way, or the manner SATA were wicked and they were a big dinner. You know the reason I know because said so before the law is exceedingly they just didn't make they weren't just wicked. They were wicked. were bigger than her wicked. They were wicked. In one night, the Lord said to Abraham, verse 14, Abraham
after that love was separated from you lift up your eyes. Now you are am and you look under the place where thou art, look north where they'll break eastward and westward. Abraham had gone into an area that wasn't the lightest and so green and where the trees were like they were rolling up. But the Lord said he knew Castros over there, Abraham. We're all the land without the deal, I give it in a dicey forever. And I God will make die seed, I'll do it as the dust to the earth. Know that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then killed it all to be able to be numbered. Arise, Abraham, walk through the land, in the length of it in the breadth of it for I will give it underneath. And class. That's exactly what we've got to do. We've got to arrive. We've got to walk. Why don't we hear until we work? Nah, man, let's get up and walk. Let's tell the accuracy of God's Word. If nobody believes, let's move the Federal Ministry of nobody wants to see it. Let's move that 10 minutes free and nobody wants to hear it. Just do it. Because the moment you arrive, that's the first thing you gotta do. You gotta get up from the place you're sitting. Remember, Peters? famous statement. People should be standing on the promises rather than sitting on the premises. That's what the word means arrived. That's not the way. You know, a man can sit around so long in the comfort of his spiritual ignorance, that he becomes sort of fossilized in your position. And it's just like having all the knuckles what he gets me up in the knuckles. That's the name of the file. So I got to tell you nothing. Okay, so your people many times, they just hit? No, it says, Get up. And it's not enough to get up because I could get up. But if I want to go back to that door, I'm going to have to do one big one off. That's exactly what he said, Rise up. You can arise and say, Boy, I wonder for the gods away ministry, the greatest thing, don't help, the thing I'd like to start was walking. And when you walk, you're going to have an opportunity of falling. It's only people that fit that don't fall unless the leg in the chair break. They never make a mistake because they're just they fall like you and I walk in this way corn, we're gonna make a mistake one. But at least we're alive. And we're walking. And we're going to get to that door because we're headed that direction. And if the old devil in front of Buddha was going to determine the direction live on la moda, that's right, we're headed back towards that door. If he was gonna keep going that direction, but his mood help us know it. We're never going to turn around this way. But he would know. Because walking is nothing but putting your one foot ahead of the other and testing yourself before you know why a baby usually doesn't quite make it the nose hits it a few times when he's learning to walk. But boy, at least the baby has a ribbon and it's starting to walk and finally the baby learning to do our walk. The Lord said get up, walk 17 whatever goal you want to land, and I will give it underneath. Once we start rising once we start walking, then God has to go into operation. If we get it we get it because God didn't give it to us. But as long as you sit and you don't walk, don't blame God. Then Abraham removed his death. Now it's time for him to move because God did move to Sydney when for moving shouldn't move. He came and he dwelt in a plane of memory, which is Hebron and Barry built an altar and I show you something in chapter 15. I shared this this morning with our 1030 groups that the family gets together.
Boy, this stuff is just hotter than a firecracker in my soul that I could this is the core of people. This is the biggest thing that any group of people have ever decided to do since the eighth century. in communicating the words that others can have communicated. Our summer schools are nice, but they tickle too many people's tonsils. And the the inquisitive people come, you know, they want to hear me teach the word again for another hour and a half because they feel so good when I see the word to them, you know, because I'm not fossilized in the same old pattern, you know, with the loan. Boy, the court got to have depth in life and you got to be able to take it. Discipline wise, work wise, sleepless, wise, you ought to be able to go at 19 hours a day without sleep, and be sharp as a meatball and remember twice as was juicy, that is gorgeous, that use that makes me very, after all of these things, chapter 15. After the things the word of the LORD came unto Abraham, the night he was watching TV, because he says no. Pictures, no color. No black and white with a nail came at Abraham at the beach and saying they're not Abraham. I am dialogue. Oh, sure. What was happening? All the people were saying, yo, yo, your whole nephew Lot. He's no good. Hearing toes with Tata Mays got. He's got exactly coming to MIT to get. Abraham says, oh, no, Lord, not my nephew a lot. All of us have moved toward Saddam and don't you kid OBP else we talk turkey all of us have moved toward Saddam at one time or another right? And we got right in the depths of that blessing stuff. One way or another? Evil I'm talking about the whole thing that Saddam represented. Yet the LORD alone have done and boy, what a tremendous truth. After all, a lot had been in Saddam and Saddam gotten all a lot family except, you know, only hearing two daughters got out and all the rest and stuff you know, boy, Abraham got concerned about lots. In one night, the Lord said to him, Abraham, don't you get I am your was killed. And ladies and gentlemen, if God is our field, where is there going to be a fire regardless Satan, which will be able to penetrate that field of God, that heal that God plants have to be impervious to all of Satan's art. The Lord said, I'm here to yield. Well, ladies and gentlemen, in the late corps, God is our hail. And if he is that we go down with the kids, okay? You bet July. Well, the Lord is our tail. And the Lord, that Jay Abraham, I am you're exceeding great blood. We're all worship the true God and all these other things shall be added unto you. Remember, Matthew, He was first the kingdom of God, only Celts, our $2 gel, have no other God, if God and the worship of the true God and you can't make it to true God truly unto you, right? And if I adore the truth, how in the world can be rightly divide the Word of Truth, if we have no man that teaches, unless somebody takes the time out of his life, go work that word and a bit so that it works with a mathematical exactness and a scientific decision and that it does fit like a hand in a glove from Genesis to Revelation 2221. I am by field and I exceeding great reward for good, very sick and he Abraham did a lot. Believe in the Lord. That doesn't mean he was converted. It means he believed what the Lord said. The Lord said, I am your field on your bank, the Lord and Abraham believe what God said.
And you know what God did? It counted unto Him. For one, right? My heartbreak plan that the King James boy didn't translate that word belief they they hacked the web was delivered but you didn't put up here. So here it's exactly what it says in the text exactly what it means. And he Abraham believed God. Abraham, I didn't have any faith because faith didn't come until Jesus Christ came right. But Abraham was the man nobody told Abraham could believe God. God said, I'm your field. I am you're sitting right there Lord and old Abraham had the toy he could either kick God and the people agree but God said Abraham totally loved my freedom as we'll use code to be in the car. You're committed for two years whether you like it or whether you don't you don't walk out of this college when you don't like something goes It's like somebody you don't hire you can't fire but it's the one outfit he just can't stay with him. I'm going late. I'm going home with the mom and the archer cookies are. You just have monofin cookies up here so I get some of them do. The Lord said, I am your and I am you're exceeding great board. And that's because the Lord is our field. The Lord has to be ideal. And the reward of this car is the exceeding greatness of God's Word and His power that's available. Ladies, gentlemen, if that isn't enough to Corey die. He is our exceeding great lord, to worship the true God and to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength.
You know, Henry Van Dyck wrote a poem and title what is the school I have used to plot for the poem hybrid. And the one hybrid you can title what is the Way Corps.
The way core is not intact walls and IV mental powers. Where dollar denomination or traditions rule with heavy hand believers, deeply bringing power the way core not faceless plays record and lost the temples of athletic training. Where devotees of course mistake a pastime for life higher
not frightened or renowned or wealthy patronage and rich estate. No, none of these can crown the way core with light and make it truly great. But equip believers, ambassadors strong and wise, who teach because they love that teachers tap and find their richest prize and eyes that open and in mind that...
