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

believing, hope, Christ, glory, lord Jesus Christ, joy, lord, born, ministry, Gentiles, peace, Bethlehem, Jesus, coming, man

 

go to Romans chapter 15. The theme for the youth advanced of course has been enthusiastic living. And as Jeff Dudley saw Abel abled Lee consulted Webster and other sources this afternoon and gave you an accurate word on the meaning of the word enthusiastic. It is very, it is just not necessary for me to say much about it. He gave you the Greek words for the word enthusiastic, which he acquired for, as he said from Webster. But it's in the Greek text to the words our aim fails. In God, they have been translated over in English, in the word enthusiastic. The basic root of this word means supernatural inspiration. And you and I know supernatural inspiration can come from one of two sources. It can either come from the true God or it can come from BU. That's why and Susie gastic living is manifested in the satanic world, as well as in the true world of the sons of God. For the most part, you've seen more enthusiastic living in the satanic world in your lifetime, than you have seen among Christian believers. But that day is changing. And the time is changing, because of the ministry that we believe God has put in our hearts and souls, for this day in time and as the supernatural inspiration, meaning enthusiastic living this, as is what we follow from the true God, which we get from his word. The scripture verse for this youth advance was that great 13, verses a 15 Chapter, now the God of hope, fill you with all joy and peace in believing that you may have bound in hope, through the power of a new Mahaki own Holy Spirit. I have taught you in the classes across the country, that there are three words, which you must understand, hope, faith, and love, or faith, hope and love as they're given in Corinthians. The word faith is the word believing anything which is immediately available to us now, we'll in the Bible, use the word believing anything which is available to us in the future, but not in the immediate present, is always the word hope. Then it is love, the god pail type of love, which activates both our believing for the immediate present, as well as our hope for the future. This is why First Corinthians 13 sets it that way. Now abideth, faith, hope, love these three, the greatest of these is love, love, because love activates. Love activates both our believing as well as our hope. Anything that you can hope for you can't have now people say, well, they hope someday to get a prayer answered, well, as long as they keep hoping that someday will never come. Because for them when they say they hope. They are simply saying they can't have it now. Anything that you and I can have now has to be immediately available to us. And it is the word believing. That's why the Bible does not speak of believing for heaven. Now it speaks of having the hope to go to have an art the hope of Christ's return.

04:34

You can't believe for Christ's return because it's not immediately available right now. Could be a second from now. But if it was a second later, it has to be biblically in the usage of the word hope. And that's one reason why this verse just struck me when I got into looking at it in its depth again, this 13 Verse Now the God believing, no, the god of luck, hope. And therefore, though the moment I see the word hope, I know that what it's saying here is not presently are immediately available you'll have to go back to verse 11, or 10. someplace in here, I don't care where you go, you just got to go back to get the context to see why the word hope is you. And again, verse 10, he says, Rejoice you Gentiles, with his people, brutal every now and again praise the Lord all ye Gentiles and laudium all you people. Verse 12, and again, is is our Isaiah says, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he shall rise to reign over the Gentiles in him shall the Gentiles trust. You see, in context, what he's talking about, was going back to the Old Testament, when Christ had not yet lot, come. That's why the Gentiles could only hope. Isaiah could only speak of this root of Jesse, that would rise and reign over the Gentiles in the future, in his in him shall the Gentiles lock. Trust. Here is the cross of Jesus Christ or the coming of the Lord and the cross of Jesus Christ. Now in the Old Testament, the believers look forward that day, you and I look back to it, for everything was wrought in Christ Jesus. Therefore, in Isaiah day when he prophesied about the coming up the Lord Jesus Christ out of the root of Jesse, it was still future, therefore they had to use the word hope. The God of hope, you understand? It is it is singularly significant that the city of Nazareth, literally mean branch, town, route town, route here in verse 12, is out of the branch of guessing out of his bloodline, out of that branch, the city of Nazareth the word Nazareth means branch, town, and Nazareth is Jesus Christ city. He shall rise terrain over the Gentiles in him shall the Gentiles trust, now the God of hope, fill you those who were hoping for Christ coming. were filled with expectation. And those filled ones expecting his return, were filled with all joy and what peace and the joy and the peace that they got filled with as they hoped, for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is one word what? Believing, believing, believing, believing fills you with joy, and peace. Understand. Joy is an inside job. Pizza is an inside job. A person has happiness because of the material things with which he is surrounded. But a man or a woman could just be loaded with material things and have a lot of happiness there, but like joy, and if you take the material things away from them, their happiness disappears. So they jump off of a tower or take too many sleeping pills or do something because they lacked an inner serenity. Now the God of hope, fill you with all joy and peace. It's an inside job with believing these Old Testament saints looking forward to the day of the coming of Christ. were filled with joy and joy. And with this with the feet, they were filled with it. Filled with it locked class if your full year was full.

09:40

They were filled with joy and peace in believing and ladies and gentlemen, there is no joy and peace available until men and women believe what God's Word say. Until that time, they may be happy. They make they may get high on something for a little while. But it won't last because to really last you have to get it on the inside. It has to be a joy and a piece of work on the inside of a man or a woman or it'll never last. And that becomes ours when we believe. You see, they look forward to that day. And in believing this, they got joy and peace. Those who believe he is here now, by way of His word and the new birth. We are filled today with joy and peace in our life, believing purpose being the key may abound in hope. Lord, looking forward to the coming of the Lord in that day that they may have bound and someone spoke so admirably about the word of bound. It is just you're bounded bounded bounded by him just keep effervesce. Whenever I read this word of bound it 17 More or less of those little things they put in a glass when people get a sour stomach and it effervescence.

11:25

What is it? Alka Seltzer? That's the bubbling I see. It's much better than the 12% stuff you use wedding. Champagne. Because it's champagne doesn't bubble fast enough. If it hasn't got that a bounding bubbles. These are bubbles what a bubble. You know, a BOUND bound a bound, that you may have found effervesce bubble in what I hope.

12:01

You see today. The day being born again of God's Spirit, we have this joy and peace. But Christ is coming back. And we today have hope for his one return as they had to hope for his first coming. And they having hope for his first coming had joy and peace, abounding Lee. You and I are looking for his return. We also have joy and peace about England. We cannot have his return at this moment. But we look forward. We that's why we have hope for Christ's return. And therefore having just hope as fellow believers we have joy and peace in believing this is what sets us in our place in our ministries that we don't get discouraged every two minutes somebody Yaks about something says they don't like what we're doing. I don't make any difference. We got joy and peace in our what? Believing because we know who we serve and we know he is coming back.

13:36

Look at Acts chapter one. The day the Lord Jesus Christ the same. It says in verse came in while they look steadfastly toward heaven.

13:54

As he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, which also said you met a Galilee, why Stein G gazing up into heaven, this same Jesus, that same Jesus, not a different one, not an incapacitated one. That same Jesus, the same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner, as you have seen him go where if he went up, he's coming back. And we've got proof that he went up. Why? Because we're born again of God's Spirit, and we can speak in tongues. And speaking in tongues is the external manifestation in the census world of the internal reality and presence of Christ. And you and I could not have Jesus Christ within us if it weren't available, and therefore, the same Jesus that went up is coming back. I don't care what the theologians say. I don't care about want certain denomination or headset? All I care about what the words say is, because what the Word says it's what's going to happen. Plus, irrespective of your believing or mine, Jesus Christ is coming by. Hello, I live that's why I can stand a little pressure. That's why when people react, you don't cash in your chips spiritually, I stand for the word. Somebody says, Well, I think you're tripped out on the word. Don't bother me a bit. He's the guy that's trip. I just know he's coming back. And I know that His word is faithful, even to the very iota of its fulfillment. Run. I heard someone say this week that some of the criticism they were passing in our ministry was that whenever Dr. Weil can explain something called to the figure if

16:02

God gravy figures a speech or laws of grammar. That kind of statement just tells me dangerous, stupid about laws of grammar. And it doesn't upset me. It doesn't stop me from teaching doesn't stop me from holding forth. The word doesn't stop you from believing or me from believing. The Word says, if he went up, he's coming back. That's the hope we've got. This ministry is so good. I've lived but even if it came, didn't come back. That's right. It's the only heavenly thing I know now. If there was no return of Christ, it still would be to my benefit and two years to live the way we live, you know it, because this is the only thing that makes any sense. The only thing that keeps you happy. The only thing that keeps your high. Every time you take some drug, you may get high, but sooner or later you got to come down. But boy with living the principles of the Word keeps your high all the time. It's so good. Sometimes you have to ask God to lay off a while. Almost. It gets so magnificent, so tremendous that you just get so warm for the Lord Jesus Christ, that your physical body can hardly stand the presence of His power and majesty and go right. He's a wonderful God. But it's not something that we just have to have now we got the guarantee of something better in the future. If you think this is good, wait till we walk the streets to gather the whole body of believers. Oh, scattered all over the world. It's tremendous to have about 250 Young people in here, but just multiply that by the 1000s that we can win within the next year. And someday we shall see them face to face when we see him. Won't that be a great reunion? For bless God, I'm going on that trip

18:21

isn't our God good that we can have this in the immediate now? Ball filled with all the fullness of God. I didn't write the book. And I didn't accomplish it for you. But it's what Mike's saying about tonight for God did was so love God so loved. Nobody ever loved God to get God to act. Oh no. God so loved God. So love that he gave he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. He did the loving and he's the one who sent Him. The Bible says in the fullness of time God sent His only begotten Son born of a woman those people looking forward for that coming had the hope of is coming but they never had anything to do with God bringing it to pass whenever the law whenever God got ready in the fullness of time in God's fullness of time God sent and you know who was ready sounds like the way ministry almost just a little handful of shepherds on a Judean hill that's about all the brass in Jerusalem didn't know a thing that was gone on a few miles. In Bethlehem, that top echelon of government or of the religious circles were totally ignorant of the great revelation that Isaiah

20:19

wait till they hear that in Australia totally ignorant, blinded, didn't expect the coming of the Lord at all.

20:37

And when about a year and a half later, some fellas came in from a distant country and said, Hey, we saw his star in East about a year and a half ago. Old heritage you did want? He said, Yeah, we saw a star in these. You weren't star, the star of desire the ruler of Israel, we saw his star. Oh, I can't believe Ah, yes, we did. Well, how'd you do? Herod said, God, high priest. And he said, I prayed, I want to tell you something, I give you exactly 15 minutes, get every priest in here, and I don't mean maybe get him in here. Right? Every scroll up or half, I want to know where this guy was born. That's fairly, you know, God's if he's a king, I'm king. You know, Herod, I got to watch over my kingdom. And he, it says in the work he demanded of them. He didn't say now, boys, I give you six months. I want to know now he demanded of them where Christ should have been born. And they worked as hard on it years before they might have been waiting and looking for it. They finally found it. And then old Herod makes a beautiful decision. He decides Tao if I do this thing, right? Get my FBI out every place. And we kill everybody. We kill every baby, every one of them. In the Nazareth of Bethlehem area north, not Bethlehem south, if you'll check a map sometime there to Bethlehem. One is in southern God and the other ones up in Galilee. And when he when he sent them to Bethlehem, he didn't send themselves because it was a year and a half to a year and eight months after Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem sail, he sent them north. And then carrot went out. After these wise men had returned, and hadn't come to tell him where they'd found him. He sent his henchmen out to kill everybody. Two years and under. Course, by this time, God had told Joseph to get himself over to Egypt, Joseph had listened the Lord never touched. Boy, when the don't just see it wonderful God acted. God acts whether anybody believes or not, I tell you, Jesus Christ is coming back has nothing to do with your believing our mind. He's coming. When the fullness of time comes again, God son from Heavens coming back, and he's not coming to lay in a manger, to be born in a manger laid in a stable, he's not coming to walk the streets of that old area of Galilee. And people look at him say, do not try. They are not going to Peru, Saudi. They're not going to put a crown of thorns on his head and nail Him to a cross. Because when he comes back door to God says he's coming as King of kings i Lord, Lord. Glory hallelujah. The same Jesus. And that's why we who are looking forward to Christ's return as fellow believers, we have the peace and the joy of believing now. You know, in Philippians bless your heart, your wonderful Philippians Corinthians Galatians he thinks and Philippians chapter three verse 20, do you have it for our citizenship? Alright, conversation is citizenship. For our Speaking of the church, our citizenship is in where heaven from whence also we look, we look. We look forward the Savior, God, Lord, what is not beautiful? Our citizenship, we're down here. We're citizens of his kingdom now. But in one sense we're already citizens up there.

25:31

Our citizenship is already guaranteed in heaven because we have eternal life, because I want God wrought in Christ Jesus, and the joy and peace in believing that became yours. Our citizenship is in heaven, from whence also we look, we look, we look. We look for the Savior. We are awaiting his return. Oh, it's wonderful being here. And I just love it. I love teaching the word. I love leading people to Christ, seeing the word move deep in their life, just like you love to witness like you love. That's good. But boy, that's not as good as the day of his retired. That's why while we're working here, we still look for the saviors coming. The Lord Jesus Christ. In verse 21, says, Who shall absolutely change our humiliation body the word vile is humiliation, our body of humiliation meaning a body that will decay a body that will get weak. He's going to change that kind of a body fashion likened to his was glorious body, verse 21, according to the working whereby he's able even to subdue Oh things unto Himself, in Titus Timothy, Titus chapter two. And in verse 13, looking forward, looking forward, God bless it was hope. Watch the blessed hope, the glorious appearing of the great God. And our save your Jesus fun. Oh, boy. That's what we're looking for the blessing hope.

27:35

in second Corinthians chapter three. It's all so beautiful and so simple. Because it's God's wonderful matchless word.

27:54

All you have to remember that the word hope means something that's coming in the future. In the Old Testament, they had joy and peace and believing in the hope of Christ first coming. You and I tonight, as born again believers, look forward and have the hope of His Second Coming. And that's what turns us on. It isn't the immediate present. It's the immediate present now knowing that it will be just as good tomorrow as it is today and Sunday, it's going to be better than any tomorrow. That's why in the 17th, verse of the third chapter of this second Corinthians three, the Lord, Now the Lord is the Spirit. And where the that is to say, Spirit of the Lord is, there is what? Liberty, liberty to sin, no, no liberty to live with the peace and the joy and believing liberty to live the greatness of God's Word, the freedom to walk without power of God in the now that's the freedom very safety. But we all with open face. No camouflage, no persona, over the face. No mask. We with an open face. be holding as in a glass in a mirror. The glory of the Lord are changed into that same age. From Glory to Glory. I tie it to glory trip

30:01

Because what you look at you become what you look at you become you keep looking at ugliness and you become ugly. You look at defeat, and you get defeated. You look at poverty and you get in it. You look at raising hell and you get in it. You look at criticism. And you get in it, people we we become the pyramids ation of what we looked at.

30:44

So get your eyes up with an open face. We look in that mirror, that glass that calls us the mirror. And why do we behold in that mirror, the glory of the Lord. We are changed in the same one. In a we become what we look at. We are looking at Christ now in what he says he is in his word and what he has wrought within our heart. But we're looking for his love, return. And that's why we get filled with joy and peace in believing because we become what we look at. That's why we are changed into the same image. And it's just a glory trip because it's from glory to glory, even by the Spirit of the Lord that beautiful. It's just always up. That's why it's never it's never a trip down. It's just a moving from one glory moot plateau to a higher plateau just to go right glory because we are looking to G's class you're never look at VP where well are Walter Cummins or Johnny jump up? Or Henry Bullecourt? No Bapi we don't look at man. We look at the Lord Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, and then we become like him. In our day by day thinking in our work, in our speech, we will say what he says. We will speak the word key speaks. If nobody believes that it's still God's word, or if nobody believes it, it is still God who will bring it to pass the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. In chapter four, verse one we read. Therefore, seeing we have this ministry, we've got the ministry, even as we have received mercy. And Mercy is great by divine favor. We all are what we are tonight because of God's grace.

33:21

I know it's amazing. But we are what we are because of His mercy and His grace. Not all one of us. Were strong enough to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, and bring ourselves to the place where we are tonight with the abounding joy within our souls and the peace of God within our hearts. But it's by His mercy and by His grace because God so loved. That's why verse two says, We have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty. Not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God howl. A man. Go Rabee God, I never said this If some birds weren't handling it deceitfully. That's why we teach in the foundational class. You can take that word out of context, you can make it mean what you want to make it mean you can get anything out of the Bible. Remember, you can even prove the Bible says there is no God. We are not to handle the Word of God deceitfully. But by manifestation of the truth, commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But verse three, if our gospel This year in 1971, be hid. It is hid to those who are what laws, men and women who wants to go to hell, while bless God, if they want to go to hell, you can't do anything about it, except love them on the trip. That's all right. Why the god of this world, the god of this world has blinded them. As blinded their mind, he's possessed them, he's controlled them. He's taken them over, blind at the minds of them which believe not less the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God should shine onto them. Satan defeated, Satan beat him, they accepted him as the light and he is definitely counterfeit. Very fast. Far we preach not ourselves. We don't run around the cities in the communities where we go and say, Look at me, I'm somebody. We are not a somebody, he's the body. Jesus Christ is the lawn. He is the one who has made us what we are. And we are what he says we are. Therefore when I say I'm his ambassador, I'm only saying what he says. But if I'm his ambassador, it isn't that I am the one who made myself this, he made this for me. That's why we preach not ourselves. But Christ Jesus alone, and ourselves, your servants, for Jesus a sake. That grant greater the Word of God lives within you, the more responsibility you have to be a servant to your fellow men. You people who have been here at the Youth advanced, loaded with more of the Word of God, you could have gotten perhaps any other place in 40 years for all I know, most likely, you've got a greater responsibility not to get puffed up full of pride. Throw out your chest and say, look who I am. No, but to say, look who the Lord Jesus Christ is and what he's made me now your serve your fellow man, you and I have to be broken bread on people, until people learn to break through them break. You and I have to let people walk on our toes. Because we don't have any corns. You know why? Because we've got to let them walk on our feet until they learn to walk on their own. We are a servant to our fellow men. Boy, when you go back into your communities that you have represented here at the Youth advance, remember with the greatness of that word goes a great responsibility of being a servant, to the ladies and gentlemen, the boys and girls, whoever you meet, you serve them.

38:13

And you serve them by serving them the greatness of God's Word in all of its love and all of its beauty. There is nothing greater that we can share with people than God's word. You can give a man a million. But all you do is make the more like you can never give a man the Word of God. And he accepts that word from you, but that it will make him happier on the outside and give him joy and peace in believing on the inside. Isn't that beautiful? class this is the only ministry in the world that I know that does nothing but good for everybody. It comes in contact with. We take nothing from anybody, we steal nothing. We don't borrow anything. We just give them the word. Share the word with them and bless them. In the wonderful name of our living Lord and of our Savior Jesus Christ. Verse six for God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness. God commanded it has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, glory. I want your data dandy. The light of the knowledge, the light of the knowledge, then we're not in stupidness you know, we have the light of the knowledge. We are enlightened about the knowledge that God has given us in Jesus Christ. We're not in darkness of the glory of God. In the face of Jesus Christ what he represented very seven. But we have this treasure, this beautiful, magnificent, wonderful treasure in earthen. What vessels that the excellency have the power may be of God and not us. We are troubled on every side, yet not what distress perplex, but not what this bear persecuted but not what? cast down but not what, always bearing about in the body, the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our Lord. Amen. Or we which live are always delivered unto death. I want to tell you, Satan will do his best to get rid of you so you better get your believing up. He doesn't have to kill his income poopsie already belong to him. Right? But he'll do his best to obstruct my ministry to obstruct yours, because we're serving our fellow man with the abundance of the revelation of God's Word. And he'll do his best to trip you up. He'll do his best if you've been on dope to get you back on it after you're saying he'll do his best to get you to argue and fight your position of Christianity. Truth needs no defense, it only needs a witness. God's is the defense of the truth of His Word. We are we which live are always delivered unto death. That's all life also a Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal bodies. So then death worketh in us who ministered the word, it worked that they knows, but it brings life to the hair. No, tell me it doesn't take strength to teach the Word of God. Don't tell me it doesn't take out of the mind. So to run a youth advanced. Don't tell me that you don't pay a price for the knowledge of the words because you do it takes body strength to do it. But as we give forth the word it's life to the hair. We having verse 13. The very now same spirit is the text which is the life of believing a calling as it is written, I believe, and therefore have i What boeken we also believe and knowing verse 14, that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up off shall raise up also by Jesus and gentle present us with love you for all things are for your what? sakes, that the abundant grace, the abundant life, Grace, my through the Thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. When many of us, thank God for what he wrote in our heart, it gives God glory. Because we know it's His abundant grace. It's not just grace, it's abundant grace, it's not just like life, it's abundant life. The grace we have is abundant. Or which call is very 16 we think not. though our outward man perish, though our outward man may get weaker. All of this kind of stuff. yet the inward man is renewed day by day by our speaking in tongues in our private prayer life. Never weakened. Verse 17. For our light affliction, anything that you and I may have to stand because we're pretty servants to our fellow men carrying the Word of God. Anything that Satan may do through them to afflict us is not a light affliction. And it's only for a one moment. Worth it for us a far more accurate ceding and eternal weight of glory because of Christ's return. Verse 18, While we look not at the thing, which are saying, not the things which are what are the things which aren't seen are temporal, but the things which are not saying are what? Oh go right, hallelujah. The things that we can see are temporal. This body you see tonight is temporal. These beautiful flowers you see are temporal. This teaching platform is temporal. But the things which are not seen are eternal, which is Christ gave you the hope of glory. God who so loved that He gave His only begotten Son. This Christ in you, which is eternal life, which is righteousness, redemption, justification, sanctification, that's all I can think of right? Always 100,000 Things mold, this Christ in you is the eternal now. And it's the eternal future. For he's coming back. And we look under him, the author and finisher update. We look to Him for His return. And we become like we look what we look at, and we have the joy and the peace in believing now. I know nothing bigger than the greatness of God's wonderful knifeless word to tell us who God really is, and what he's Son Jesus Christ really is. And class we have authority that God says we have we are what the Word of God says we are. And we will be what's the word of God says we will be far we will be changed, in a moment in a twinkling of an eye, just be like Him. Are then we shall see Him face to face. Now we look as in a glass darkly but then, then face to face. Now I know him part but then shall I know for all even as also I am no. And now abideth faith, hope, love these three. And the greatest of these ah go rate that greatest of these is the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation which activates both are believing to have the abundant life now. And our hope to have super super super abundance is Christ's return when we'll be like him. That's power for abundant living coming down.

 

47:56

All people, there is nothing to equal the great accuracy of God's Word in setting men and women free. There's only one thing they need to hear today. And that's God's word. They have heard a great deal about psychology and psychiatry and mathematics, history, philosophy, you name it. But where are the men and women who have the word in their hand and not only saved us set the Lord but can teach people exactly what God say is how he says that they can understand it and utilize it in their life. While you're seated right out there. You're listening to this tape this week. You are the people I'm setting 1000 times and I suppose it'll bear repeating tonight. God has no hands but our hands got his spirit. He has no hands but my hands with which to give people bread. He has no feet, but our feet with which to move among the almost dead. We say that we are His and He is our deeds are the proof of that ladies and gentlemen. And these are the proving hours. Why don't you take it out and prove God? Why don't you just turn the world upside down with the greatness of the power of God in your soul? Or God has only you to do his job. And you have to believe to bring it to pass. The opposition doesn't have to believe they just have to relinquish themselves to get possessed. And what more glorious opportunity we have of studying to show ourselves approved onto him by rightly dividing the Word and holding forth that word of God, not deceitfully. But holding it forth in all of its radiant beauty and glory. That men and women can once again in our lifetime hear the word they can say yes or no something They have not had the privilege to say many places in the world in many lifetimes are you ready to go I love you.
