The Teacher of God's Word

The Teacher of God's Word

Poem by Dr. Wierwille

Topic: poem, teacher

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 Teacher of God's Word

The teacher of God's Word is one of a kind
Who loves God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength;
And who loves nothing more than to teach his Word.

The teacher of God's word is an artist
He works alone – reading – thinking – praying – studying – 
Believing to share his product with all the world.

The teacher of God's word is a giver
One who gives without the guarantee of being received;
One who rejoices without knowing if anyone else will joy;
One who corrects the irresponsible and careless;
One who gives, gives, gives, and keeps on giving.

The teacher of God’s Word lives only to teach
To receive, to weigh, to discard, to develop,
To learn, to treasure, to give, to motivate,
To enlist, to stabilize, to encourage, to direct.

And may I add, and to build equipped believers,
    ambassadors strong and wise
Who teach because they love the teacher's task
And find their richest prize
In eyes that open, and in minds that ask.
