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.

Philippians, God, Christ Jesus, righteousness, humiliation, law, apprehended, work, resurrection, mind, flesh
As you know, Philippians give us the practical side of witchy theologians gives the doctrinal or the teaching side Philippians was written to the church in Philippi, to correct the practical air that it crept into the church because of failure of adherence to the revelation given in the book of Ephesians. But it not only corrects the practical air, it sets forth the practical side of Christianity. And it deals in a great respect with the renewed mind. The things that I am going to set before you tonight, may in some respect, be rather detailed, and be rather heavy. I'm not doing this to show you how little or much I know about the Word of God. But I think that these things must be saved. If for no other reason than they are put down on tape, and it's recorded, and then people can listen again and they can work. I said to Reverend Commons before I came in the auditorium tonight, at the close of this service tonight, I'll give him my notes on this particular work, because it's man of his ability, and others that are involved in the ministry of research from Greek and Aramaic, that takes some of this work that I've done, and to bring it into fruition and into even greater and finer points than I am capable of doing. But I want to teach the fourth chapter of Philippians. But I'll have to take two Sunday nights to do it. So tonight to be like a serial act one tonight, part two, next Sunday night. Now in order to teach you the fourth chapter of Philippians, I want to read sections of the third chapter with you to set the pattern for that fourth chapter. I want to begin reading with verse three of chapter three of Philippians. And if I read words, which are not in the King James, these are words in this chapter which we have corrected from the critical Greek texts and made them to fit as what the word originally was. For we are verse three, four, we are the circumcision. who worship God, by way of the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the lot flesh. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinks that he has, whereas he might trust in the flesh, I more Circumcised the eighth day of the stock of Israel, the tribe of Benjamin, in Hebrew of the Hebrews, as touching the law of Pharisee Concerning zeal, persecuting the church, touching the righteousness, which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gained to me, those I counted loss, for Christ's gay, doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but done, that I may win Christ, and be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is true the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God. First came, that I may know him, that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto his death, if by any means I might arrive unto the out resurrection of the dead, not as though I had already attained, either we're already perfect, but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended. But one thing I do read refuting or declaring Nolan void those things which are behind and reaching forth onto those things which are before I press toward the mark, for the prize of the high or upward calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded. And if in anything you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, were to we have already attained let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. Brethren, the followers to gather a me and mark them which walks so as you have us for an example. Or many Walk Of whom I've told you often and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly thing for our citizenship is in heaven. From whence also we look forward, the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our humiliate that or view our body of humiliation, who shall change our body of humiliation, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things onto himself. Therefore, the word therefore, always indicates a logical procedure, following upon that which has been taught. The whole third chapter deals basically with the pressing on toward the prize, the mark for the prize of the upward calling and to press on toward this mark time and time again in the third chapter, you have reference to one mind or with that mind of Christ. And so here in the fourth chapter,....
