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.

Get your Bibles tonight and turn to the Gospel of Luke. Every year people always enjoy this season of the year because of my teaching from the Gospels regarding the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. No matter how many times you read these records in here, these records from God's word, they're always enlightening and inspiring because of the great accuracy with which they are sent. Naturally, all of us are cognizant of the truth, that the Lord Jesus Christ was not born at this season of the year. That's right. But we just praise the Lord he was born. And we thank God for the birth of that savior. Now in that first chapter, the gospel of Luke, no woman has ever uttered any greater words than those words recorded in verse 38. Were after the visitation of the angel Gabriel, Mary, say at the verse 38, Behold, the handmaid of whom, being be it unto me according to Thy what word, and the angel departed from her. And Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country, with haste into a city of Judah or Judea, and entered in the house of Zacharias and saluted. Elizabeth, as you will recall from God's word, Elizabeth was the life of Zachariah, who was a priest in the temple, and that God had spoken to them earlier, saying that Elizabeth would have a child. According to the record, in Bruce 36, the angel had informed Mary, that her cousin Elizabeth had conceived a son in her old age, and that this is the sixth month with her who was called What if this is a six month with her, you will note in verse 56, of this first chapter, that Mary abode with her about how long three months and returned to her own house. Therefore, shortly after the conception, after the marriage of Joseph and Mary, they left to go to southern Judea, to the place where Zacharias and Elizabeth lived. There is no implication in God's Word that Joseph did not go with her. Even though it says in verse 39, that Mary arose in those days, and went into the kill country with haste. No woman traveled by herself in those days like women do today. They traveled in caravans or in larger groups. And knowing the cultural background of the Word of God, Mary's husband, would be obligated to accompany him on this first year of their honeymoon, so to speak. And therefore I know from the accuracy of God's word and the culture in Vail, that not only did Mary go, but Joseph, her husband went with her. And they entered into verse 40, the house of Zacharias and saluted Elizabeth. And it came to pass that When Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the debate leaped in her room, and Elizabeth was filled with for Pneuma howgill dot strimming. Elizabeth was filled. When Mary came in and spoke to Elizabeth that babe gave a big old jump, you know, kicked her good or something. It leapt in her womb, and Elizabeth was failed. Elizabeth was filled this is not the word the word filled is not the filling of a glass to where it's full. That is a totally different word when a glass when this glass is filled with water, that's one word. But when it is filled, that it flows over, is the glass still full? Surely it is, and when not filling is so full that it flows over. It's an entirely different word. The word for being full, not flowing over is the word play. lacO. When something is filled to overflowing, it is the word playful. And here in this scripture, It's the right place Oh, Elizabeth was filled, was filled to overflowing with a new Maha do that tells you something great. It tells you that the the overflowing is the manifestation, the evidence of the filling. Because the next verse says, She speaks out with a lot, loud voice, she's going to give a word of prophecy. And prophecy is the external manifestation in a sense of the world, one of the nine manifestations of the Spirit that you have the feeling of pride of the spirit within.

05:40

She couldn't have prophesied out here had she not had the spirit on the inside, right? Tonight when these people spoke in tongues and interpreted or brought a message in prophecy, they could not have done that had they not had Christ within. You have to have the Spirit of God within to prophesy. Today you must be born again of God's Spirit having Christ in you the hope of glory, if you're going to speak in tongues, interpret, Prophesy operate, where the knowledge, wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, miracles and healing. Now that word is the word Plato, spell filled, Pl Etho long Oh, and it always means in the right of God, filled to overflowing. She speak out with a loud voice. Who did the speaking? cheated? Did the Spirit speak? Nope, cheated. Because the true spirit, you have to operate. Anytime somebody is operated by any other spirit. It's the devil spirit. It's an evil spirit. It's on this satanic site. That's where it's controlled. We are not controlled by God. We have received him by the free will of our choice. And we operate the things that God that's why the true God has to wait on men and women to believe on young people on children. When they believe them. Things come to pass. Satan doesn't have to wait on people's believing he just possesses them. He controls them. They lose the freedom of their will and of their mind and he takes over like Arthur Ford like Genie Dixon's. You name them. You got beautiful pictures. Casey's they had to give themselves over to the spirit and the spirit controls them. This word says that Elizabeth was in her right mind. She was in absolute control of everything she did for it was she it was not a spirit. It was she who speak out with a loud voice. Not a bad lesson, the people who prophesied the way headquarters or any other place. You got to speak up that the people can hear for how can it bless the people back there if they can't hear what's happening up here. That's why you bring up the volume. You're in control. You want everybody to hear what God's got to say. So she spoke out with a loud voice and said, Blessed art thou among women. And blessed is the fruit of thy what? womb. The reason Mary was blessed is because of the verses back up there while I read one tonight verse 38, where Mary said, Behold thy hand made of love the Lord. It she had said earlier in verse 33, how shall this be seeing I know not a man The angel answered and said unto her, for no myhockey own Holy Spirit, God shall come upon thee and the power of the Highest shall overshadow the therefore also that holy thing that shall be born of these shall be called the son of who? God. Now and Mary sent a telegram, okay, Elizabeth's saying, I'm coming down because I'm pregnant. I'm going to have a baby and it's going to be Jesus the Christ. Elizabeth didn't know a thing about it, no one thing about it. Mary and Joseph get to their place at 327 South Fourth Street or someplace, they knock at the door, and they, they greet each other. And immediately, immediately, she spoke out and she said, Well, Blessed art thou among women. And blessed is a fruit of thy womb. How did she know she didn't know it sense knowledge wise, but God's Spirit talk told her spirit, which is God's Spirit in her because it just told us that she was filled with love. And God being spirit can speak to God put it in there, she spoke it out. And it simply corroborated what God had told Mary to begin with. As I teach you in the foundation of class, God never will talk to anybody else and tell anybody else what you are to do, unless he first talks to you. He had first told Mary what he was going to do.

10:26

Therefore, this prophecy only cooperates. It does not fit, tell anything, it just fit at fourth tale something that God has already told her right? And look at the comfort in that prophecy. Look at the comfort in that prophecy. Because the law said that Mary should be have her head chopped off, right? She she had to be stoned rather same difference die. People shook their head like this. I thought you're well trained. Well, the word says that she was to be stoned. And you know good and well, from what we read the six months of of Elizabeth's pregnancy, Mary stayed about three. So Mary was not pregnant too long. But by the time Mary now gets back to Nazareth, won't be very long. Kill the people in the community will start adding up the days of the weekend, a month, you know how people are. They figure out when did she get pregnant? And then oh, Rabbi Rabona, bitch finds out you know, and when he finds out who imagine that comfort. Mary had said, be it unto me according to Thy law, I'll be a handmade for the Lord. He goes down to southern Judea. Elizabeth knows nothing about it. There's a prophecy there's a prophecy. Man that must have just blessed her. So when Elizabeth said those words, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. That must have just lifted her sky was not a wonderful cooperation. Look at the comforted the edification which is comfort in part, the comfort in that word of prophecy. And the reason Mary was blessed. And the reason that that which was of her womb was blessed is because it was God's only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. And the blessing that Mary received was that she believed God and said, be it unto me according to thy word, that was life, she is blessed. Then these tremendous words, verse 43, and went is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me. Elizabeth said, when says this to me, that the mother, the mother of my Lord should come to me. Now we have some very beautiful theological errors propounded over which people have killed themselves and still get all confused about that, who teach that, that Mary is the Mother of God? Well, if Mary's the Mother of God, God made a mistake in his work, he made a few others to write. The reason you've got all the confusion is because people have propounded a basic theological air. And today I have to hold on to that air because Christianity, Protestantism has its fundamental principle build upon that air, and you take that air out of them, they have nothing left. Therefore they'll fight like cats and dogs, to maintain the air and the air is there. Devil is teaching that Jesus Christ was God. Jesus Christ was not God. God is God, Jesus Christ is Jesus Christ. And the Word says, He is the Son of God. Now if Jesus Christ is God, then God fathered himself and God is God and God. Oh, come again. How stupid but you see It's like a man wrote to me once he said he could no longer communicate with me because I was a tremendous heretic. Because if I did not believe that Jesus Christ was God, there was no principle of communication possible.

15:17

He said it I didn't, I can communicate with him. But you see, they're so dogmatic. That no matter what God's Word says, they'll squeeze that they're arguing, they'll fight it, to try to get it to say what they say it has to say, well, it doesn't say it. And you can work on it till you're blue in the face. And it won't say it. Unless you take the word of God out of context, read into it, multiplied, divided, subtract it and raise it to the nth degree. That's the only way you'll ever get you can't get it from the text. And I don't care how many theologians and I've read every book, every major theological work that's ever been written on the Trinity. It's some of the most beautifully compounded air in the entire and you'll never get straight on God's word until you get straight on who Jesus Christ is and was and what he did for us. I don't think that heretical teaching is on our part, who represent the ministry on the way I think it's on the part of others who have propounded the air and if they proponent let them get themselves out of the soup. I didn't get them into it. They did their best to get me into it had me in it for years, until I worked this word from Genesis to Revelation back and forth upside down in any which way so that it would fit like because if it's God's word, ladies and gentlemen, it's got to fit God. God cannot lie. People lie like troopers but not God. His word stands, nobody touches it, just nobody, for it's God's word. And I always people get off of my stupid back on this trinity business, you want to talk Trinity, go out and get yourself a drink or do something. Go talk to somebody who agrees with you, because that's what you're looking for anyways, you're not looking, they're not looking for the accuracy of God's Word. They're looking for something that we're proposing the system they've already developed. And I'm tired of the system because it's brought nothing but defeat to the accuracy of God's Word, and the power of His Holy Spirit, and it has degraded the Lord Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, who loved us who gave Himself for us, and who redeemed us. Well, bless God, some of us are coming back to the Word and we stay put on that word. And we don't budge just because somebody who graduated from Timbuktu backward says So look, when says this to me that the mother of my Lord should come underneath talking about Mary, who was going to have the baby called Jesus the Christ.

18:17

Who is Lord I explained Lord to you. It's simple. It's so simple. That's what I was talking to Walter about before we came in. Surely, someday somebody's gonna have to see.

18:38

Anybody to whom? Or who I respect, who has a greater authority than I have is my law. A woman married Mary will say of her husband, that her husband is her Lord. That doesn't mean he's God. That simply means not you know the one and only God that simply means that he to her is like God is He is Lord.

19:19

Oh the word says So Genesis at Genesis at this is the first usage in the Bible. And the first usage many times does lot explains exactly what it is through the Word. Genesis chapter 18.

19:52

Break 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in LA. And it seems to be with Sarah after The matter of women she'd gone through the menopause period. Therefore verse 12, Sarah laughs You know, when she got in touch going to baby, Sarah left who? And within herself saying, after I am lactose, shall I have pleasure? My lord being lot. And her lord is who are that's what it's because he was the one who from who? Who related with her and to whom she was responsible, that's why he was Lord. So in the Bible, the husband is called Lord, does that mean he is God Almighty? No, but he is above, he is Lord. Now Jesus Christ is about any other man, human man. Therefore Jesus Christ is called what? When I am born again, I confess with my mouth, Jesus as what, Lord, because before that, I am Lord. I'm pretty the first part, second part, third part and all the other parts, you know, but now I change lords. And I confess with my mouth, that Jesus is going to be watched for me, my lord, that's the meaning of it. I have a higher authority now. I'm under his authority. Then, God Almighty, God Almighty is Jesus Christ, Lord, because God is above Jesus Christ. That's why God Almighty His reports referred to as the Lord God. In Matthew, keep your finger and Luke, we'll be back. Matthew 22. When I was talking to Walter, these things flipped up into his mind immediately. And he turned to this scripture in Matthew 22. I hadn't planned on giving it to you. But after we talked, I felt a lot to Matthew 22 Verse 43, he said unto them, How then does David in spirit call him Lord saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit down on my right hand till I make thine enemies I put to the Lord, in verse 40. For the first Lord is the Lord God. The Lord God said unto my Lord, and the Lord is Jesus Christ, the Son, the second Lord in verse 44, is the son. That tremendous. One is the Lord God, the other is the Lord of David, who is Jesus Christ, because the word says, like Abraham, you look forward and saw his last day they were looking toward the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and looking for that day, they worship the true God with expectation and anticipation of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. In first Corinthians chapter 15.

23:43

First Corinthians chapter 15 isn't such a wonderful word. Because it's accurate, it fits it makes sense, as to if it's God's word, 15, verse 27. For he has put all things under his feet, but when he says, All things are put under him, I mean, verse 2750, it is manifested that he, Jesus Christ, that is, is accepted, which did put all things under him. Verse 28, and when all things shall be subjected or subdued onto him, then shall the sun also himself be subject onto him. That put all things under him that is what God then the sun is subject to. Is that what it says? By 20 means? Because God is the Lord of Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is our Lord. As the husband is the lord over the life He is the life. Look. That's what the usage of the word Lord means all through the word. That is why, back in Luke Wentz is this to me that the mother of my watch, my lord, my lord who Jesus Christ, for unto Mary shall be born at some, and you shall call his name Jesus for He shall save His people from their sins. He is the Messiah, the Lord. Or low, verse 44. As soon as the voice of dice salutation sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And bless it verse 45, and blessing is she who believes Glory hallelujah. Bless it is she's I believe, for there shall maybe no baby, for there shall be a performance no ands ifs or buts about it, no matter what am I have a bone a bit says, and all the rest of the people of the world may say it's going to come to pass it simply cooperates what God has already told her. It is established, it's guaranteed. And this woman Elizabeth didn't know a thing about it. She just opened her mouth and spoke out loudly. And she just said these wonderful words. Bless it and she that believed or there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from Lord it's going to happen. It's going to come to pass. Nothing shall be tied, obstructed or obliterated, it shall be it's an absolute tense. And Mary said, now we shift to Mary. And Mary said, My soul dot magnify the Lord and my spirit. I rejoice in God. My watt. Right here you have soul and spirit. As a poetic parallelism. It's a figure of speech called a poetic parallelism between soul and spirit, my soul, magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoice in God night safety. Not only was Mary body and soul but the Spirit of God was upon her, because she gives this word of prophecy and without the Spirit she could not have lat come on dots it and that poetic parallelism, they're just fantastic. My soul does magnify the Lord and my spirit as rejoice in God. At first 46 You can have it both ways, if you like I prefer the one I'm going to give you. I believe that her soul just magnify the Jesus that Christ who will be born up her who will be the Lord. And my spirits have rejoiced in God. The creator of heaven and earth, who is my Savior, where God is still the Savior, even today through His Son, Jesus Christ, or it is God. For it is God who has redeemed us through Jesus Christ. It is God who has made available the new birth. Remember, Ephesians right says when we're born again, we're filled with all the fullness of hope, God. You cannot separate God to this degree because Jesus Christ did the work of his father. He has seen me Jesus has seen the Father. Verse 48, for heat God hath regarded the lowest state of his handmaiden where, behold, from henceforth, all generations shall call me blessed. Why? Because there shall be a performance of those things because she believed in various 45 Back in verse someplace else it said she believed you know, read it tonight. Someplace deny Alice in the Word. Maybe it's in Matthew Hmm. She said, be it unto me according to thy word. 38 Right. Or he that is my It verse 49, he's got his mighty who is the mighty one. God has done to me great things What did God do? He created within her soul life which brought forth Jesus the Christ. And holy is his name whose name God. That's why it's Holy Spirit. For a holy is God's name. And God is what Spirit and His mercy, verse 50, God's mercy is on them that love him, or reverence him or respect him. To fear him does not mean to be afraid up. It means to reverence to respect to have all AWB from generation to generation. He God has showed strength with his arm, figure Conde Sensio what does the arm represent? That's the emphasis. He has scattered God at scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. There's where they're seated. Their life is within their mind, the imagination of man have just been blown to pieces. But it's 52 He got it put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted Damn, those who are of low degree, he could not swallow the 32nd or 3030 to go first or something. He has filled verse 53, not hungry with good things. And the rich he has simply empty away. You see, verses 3051 52 and 53 have been difficult for people for some. Because by just an English reading of those verses, you will say God did this. In other words, God scattered the proud. God put down the mighty God took the rich and send them away empty. No, no, no, no. This is the old, biblical cultural way of saying things. Well if you get the picture of this just being perfectly hard, and solid and immovable, and everything else. And let's say God set up a law here like this. Now, man backs up against this law. He just obeys God. The old biblical way, the old Eastern cultural way of saying it is God brought it on him. God only set the law and man by hitting up against it brought it on himself by his unbelief. Because God didn't bring it down this way. God had established this way men bucks up against it. They're all like that through the Old Testament. It's a cultural thing. This is why you have to understand biblical usage of words, and the cultural background. For God doesn't go around. And take the rich people and make them poor set up empty away. God doesn't go down and put down those mighty from their seats. And exalt people have low degree.

33:57

But people by their believing by their action, by their own mental decision back up against God's law, and then they take the consequences of the others by their believing no God's law and they reach up and they take a hold of it and they work with it. You know in Romans, Romans chapter nine verse 15, brace at the Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will love and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. In other words, if I don't want to have any compassion on you, not see you. I mean, this is what they taught right here is well, John Calvin really tripped up. And you got Calvinism in its total baloney in its complete magnificent error, right in this section in Romans. And we still have the same doctrines propounded today that God would take one person, send him to heaven pick another one send him to hell, and they call it predestination.

35:31

Well, if I had that kind of a God, I'd find me a new one. God, right. I wouldn't like God, if you take Randy and send him to hell and take Mike and send him halfway between heaven and hell and take Bo over here and give him the trip. Damn. If my God did that kind of thing. I'd quit. Because he cannot do that, for God is light in him is no darkness. You see, it's the whole word you have to put together. But it makes it tremendously powerful. If I run a certain denomination, and I don't like somebody else, I give them the trip the other direction. You call it predestination. And oh, John Calvin was a genius had given trips. Anybody who disagreed he ran Geneva, Switzerland with an iron hand and don't you forget? We have reformed background have a holy atmosphere built around John Calvin. And I want to tell you, he tripped out so much. It's even if I tripped out half as much you never come to hear me. Because I haven't even set somebody out there yet and had him shot because it disagreed with the way ministry He did. The admin executed because they wouldn't come under His control in Geneva. And he is a great reformed theologian. You see yours puts spiritual beards on fellas where your Reverend some people, it's the word you got to come to get off a man get on the word get off and denominations get on the word. And our God's a God of love. He's the God of light. He's the God of truth. God doesn't pick this fellow and send him to hell, that person sent him to heaven. But man, by his believing makes that decision. But because God has set the law, the biblical way of saying it has God did so like on Pharaoh on the rest. Well, let me read Jim Romans, maybe we'll understand this thing. Verse 16, so that it is not of Him that will ignore of him that run us but of God that was sure the results are not of the guy running but he has determined the results. God has set the pattern to begin with. Verse 17, for the Scripture says, under Farrell, even for this same purpose, have I raised the up that I might show my power in the In other words, the way they read it is a God raised fail up so God could get failed to treatment, you know? And that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Therefore, verse 18, happy Mercy has God mercy on whom He will have mercy and whom He will if he wants, hardness, God hardness.

38:34

It's all in the essence of what I've already seen. The reason it said God, hardness is because the man has chosen to revolt against God's word instead of believing it and that's why the biblical use they said, God did he look in in Romans nine, verse four, to whom is this section addressed? Who are Israelites? It's not addressed to the church in chapter four of Romans.

39:14

Maybe it's chapter two, but someplace in here, it talks about repentance. Maybe it's two four, it's either 2442 here for two for despises Dr. Richard forbearance and longsuffering not knowing that the goodness of God leaders eat a lot. Repentance. These people like Pharaoh and the rest of them should have repented. The goodness of God, leader theory, but the Israelites did not want to repent, foul did not want to repent. They did not want to go God's way. So they upped up against it. And that's why the Word says and God brought this on Farrell Literally, he did because he made the one. But Ferrell by his believing, cutting himself off. The goodness of God leads men to repentance. But If men don't repent, then they have to take the consequences of running up against God's immutable laws. God's laws do not change, men do. And when men believe they receive the results of that love, that God has established, when they disbelieve or have unbelief, which is believing on the negative side, they receive the consequences. You'll either get results or consequences, one or the other. Like to Luke. That's the explanation of those tremendously simple versus a 5251 52 and 53. Or 54. He is hoping is serving Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, as he speak to our fathers to Abraham and to his seed, what forever. There is the end of that tremendous prophecy and a lot of comfort that again, he is it must have been a comfort to Elizabeth, to Joseph Zakharov. Everyone that heard this, and I'm sure there were more there than just Mary and Elizabeth. And very 50s, six cents, and marry a boat with her about what, three months and returned back to our own house, which would be in Nazareth of Galilee, putting this together with verse 36, where I showed it to you this evening, where the angel had told Mary that Elizabeth had conceived a son in her old age. And this is a six month with her who was called barren, if she was in her six months, and Mary abode with her about three months. It was almost time for Elizabeth to have the baby. And when you put all of this together with that which I taught to you last Sunday evening, you have all the record that there is a God's word regarding this wonderful coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, of how he was born. And it's so tremendous. Because they had the records of the Old Testament, you would have thought that the rabbis the priests, and especially the high priest would have studied those records and would have had the people looking but at the time our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came the top echelon was completely tripped out just like today. Almost. There was no knowledge of is coming. Nobody was really looking for it.

43:32

Except a little handful of shepherds out on a Judean hill. And I'm Mariana Joseph. Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Anna Zacharias. That's the ruler, the governmental ruler. He didn't know what was happening. The high priests didn't know what was happening.

44:01

The rabbis didn't know what was happening. The members of the Senate and the House of Representatives didn't know what was happening. The senators didn't know the governor's didn't know what a little handful, a shepherd. I don't know God in him. People. It's just unbelievable that the greatest thing God ever did in sending his only begotten son could come into a world. So unexpected. So unannounced, and so unprepared for him. But that's how he came. They came to Bethlehem as you remember. They tried to get room at the Hilton was filled. They went down to eight offs, and it was filled. And when you're filled from the Hilton down to eight oh to your failed, all the living quarters are gone. But someone was kind enough to say you may sleep back there with a capital. That's what my Bible says. She bought brought forth her firstborn son wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for him, God's only begotten Son. In the end, isn't that wonderful? It's terrible to think that nobody would have room for him. But people how many across our nation today have room for the Christ? How many compared to the millions and millions of people in our nation. And then when you want to go worldwide, billions of them, how many really make room today for the Christ, to receive Him as their personal Lord and Savior. He is still God's only begotten son if nobody believes he still was born at the Word of God says he was born. And people he's the greatest thing God has ever done. It was God's only begotten son was Mary's firstborn. But He is my Lord and my Savior. He is the one whom I love. He is the one who loved me enough that he gave his life for me. Why would somebody does that for you? They love you tripping out every two minutes. He did it for you to people, how little can we give back to someone who loved us so much? Man because I have to work 18 hours a day. So what's that? Nothing for you if God so loved that he gave boys a little bit of giving I do for him. I don't know how your trip is but mine is happy. And I'm just gloriously radiant with that wonderful love that he had. Even when we were dead in trespasses and sins without God and without code, he loved us enough to give his life. Man may lay down his life for his friends remember what the Word says? What about somebody laying down for his enemy. And all men are dead in trespasses and sin in enmity against God. And for those Jesus Christ cave he lived and he died. That men and women could be BORN AGAIN of God's Spirit, for God raised Him from the dead. He filled with the fullness of the power of God and operate the manifestations of the Spirit in the here and now. And the life in which we live, ladies and gentlemen, I think, as you think that the greatness of God's word is a fantastic truth. But greater than even the word is the Incarnate Word, this word of God in the place, Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, because that puts the validity to the written word.

48:22

Because he is the red thread from Genesis 315, through the 22nd chapter, the book of Revelation, Jesus, the Christ of God, God's only begotten Son, He who redeemed mankind, He is our Savior. He is our Lord. And God is his Lord. And the day is coming when all the last enemy that shall be destroyed in Romans, I mean, Corinthians 15 Already did read it a solid tonight shall be death, and then comes to pass. All these things will be put in subjection, you know the last enemy, then Jesus Christ Himself will be subject to God, his father, God is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and it is He who sent him. So I just thank God tonight for the wonderful gift of His Son and the lowly birth he had for how could he ever redeemed me? Had he not gone to the lowest depths of hell to make it possible? There is no man so low, but that Jesus Christ went lower. There is no woman so low, but that Jesus Christ went lower. There is no man so high but that Jesus Christ went higher, or a woman so high that Jesus Christ went high, because he is a complete Redeemer, as it says in Hebrews able to save to the uttermost, those who come to me. There is no one outside of the pail of the Lord Jesus Christ. Who wants to come, but they by their free will, by their believing will either receive the results of that which Christ made available, or they have to take the consequences because they're breaking God's law. The way ministry with all the strength and love we have are holding forth to men and women today. The first of those for the end that we share the greatness of the word, and help those people who want to turn on for him. Because that's the only thing worth turning on for. What's the only thing that satisfies on the inside? To know that you know that you know that you know that you know that you have Christ with him? And that He has redeemed you completely and done exactly what Gail said tonight is glorified you is sanctified is all of those beautiful things you say it or in the word in Corinthians or Romans or someplace and it just blessed me so because God is a complete God, through His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and for that I'm thankful. And that is why I always love to teach these records from Luke and from Matthew because it sets the world again in all of its beauty with all of its glory.
