In Psalms 139:
14 it says: "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made: Marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." As
we look at the human body we find it is a very complicated mechanism. People
do not realize how very complicated their body is. There is a particular
organ inside my body that has been pumping for over 60 years without any
repairs to it, without being greased, oiled or gasoline fed to it. It has
never stopped for any rest. I've never seen that organ, yet it is the most
important organ to my body. When I look at a model of my heart and other
organs, I am awed by the complication of this machine in which we live.
published some pictures of the human body greatly magnified. They had a
picture of the scalp, of a
human head of
hair magnified hundreds of times. It looked like a great forest of
trees. They magnified a photograph of the eye and showed the eye under a
microscope. It is hard to believe that we are so marvellously and fearfully
made. Praise the Lord! This
body can do many things. It can take all kinds of pain, affliction and yet
survive. Men have actually been shot in the heart and survived. Some men
have fallen out of airplanes
thousands of feet through the air and survived. Many things have happened to
the human body and we find that there is almost no limit to the things that
are possible in this human body. Our bodies are such complicated machines
that physicians and scientists have been examining it for years trying to
figure out it's secrets.
But if you think
the body is complicated, it is far less complicated than the soul. For you
see, as we come into the soul life, we come to a higher order. In the book
of I Thessalonians 5: 23 it
says: "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; (that means
entirely) and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved
blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Now notice from God's side how He speaks of these things. He speaks
of the highest order first. First
the spirit, then the soul and then the body.
Now generally when you talk to anyone and they mention these, they
start with the body. They say
"body, soul and spirit" because this is where we live, this is
what we see. I can't see your soul. You
express your soul through your words and your expressions.
An example of this is that it's difficult for some people to talk
without the use of their hands.
I read an
article on this awhile back that was explaining how it is difficult to
express yourself just with words without using your hands to describe what
you are saying. I cannot see
your soul until it is expressed through your body and by the words of your
mouth. This is how you express what is in your mind or your soul
life. We are not very good mind
readers. There have been people
who seem to give themselves to that psychic realm until they can pick up
thoughts or wave lengths. This
is a dangerous realm to walk in because there is a powerful realm here in
the soul or psychic life. It's
not something to play around with. Some
bodies are so powerful they can pick up hundreds of pounds and boxers can
overcome their opponents because of their strength, yet
the psychic realm is far more powerful than the physical realm. This
is not the highest realm. The
highest realm is the realm of the spirit.
This is the realm out of which God rules.
For we see it says that God's throne is in the heavens.
Earth is His footstool, that's where He walks, that's where His feet
are. That's where He is made
visible through these bodies, but He rules in the spirit. And if He does not rule your spirit, then
your soul life is not going to correctly and properly reveal and
express the God that's within you. Your
spirit must be turned completely over to Him, He must rule in your Zion, He
must rule in your spirit or else your body cannot properly express God.
When I see men
and women who are dishonoring God in their bodies, who are stumbling around
in a drunken stupor or speaking profanity and blasphemy, this indicates to
me not just that their bodies are out of order, but that God is not ruling
on the throne in their spirit, in the heavenlies.
For if God rules in the heavenlies, the body will be brought into
divine order. Now this is
important for us to know because we are all interested in the message of
life. We are interested in
knowing that God is going to take over and redeem these bodies.
And Paul says "we who have the firstfruits of the spirit are
groaning for the redemption of our bodies".
redemption of the body does not come until the firstfruits of the spirit
become the fullness of the spirit. When
God is fully enthroned and He is Lord of lords and King of Kings, when every
knee bows and every tongue confesses that He is Lord and when we can truly
bow and say "He is Lord, He is ruling in the throne of our
spirits". Then will these
bodies be brought out of the corruption of death and we shall put on
immortality and incorruption. Glory
to God! I love the Word of God.
When you look in it you begin to see the pattern and the answer to
the promises of God that He has given us, that these bodies are going to be
brought into conformity and to that which Christ has purchased for us.
THE TREASURE IN A FIELD
Jesus said that
the kingdom of God was like a man who found a treasure, but he found it in a
field, in an earthen field. He
didn't find it hidden away in some vault.
He didn't find it tucked away in the attic of some great palace, but
he found it buried in a field. And
so he went and sold everything he had and bought that field, so he could get
the treasure that was in the field. Now
that wasn't us buying salvation because we didn't buy it, it was a gift of
God. We didn't have anything to
buy it with. The Bible says we
are bought with a price, He is the one who bought us.
II Corinthians 8:9 says: "For
ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet
for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be
rich." He made himself
poor. He sold all that He had.
He stripped and emptied Himself of that glory that He had with the
Father before the world began. He
then came down here into the poverty of this visible, earthly life that He
might buy that treasure that was hid in the field.
We are that treasure, we are that field.
There is a spirit that He has seen within you that is a treasure.
He said that we have this treasure in earthen vessels.
So Jesus FOUND the treasure, but He BOUGHT the whole field.
Now the Bible does say that after the man bought the field that he
got rid of it. But brother,
when he bought the field, he got the treasure out of it, but he still kept
the field. I believe that he
cleared all the stumps and the rocks, the thorns and thistles and plowed it
up good and planted some good crops. I
believe he made the field productive! Do
you know what makes me believe that? It's
because that's exactly what's happened to these earthly vessels that He has
purchased. When He receives
that which He has found in us and perfects these spirits, He still isn't
finished. He also has a plan
and a program for this body.
THE RESURRECTED BODY
I have refuted
and fought against those people who claim there isn't going to be a
resurrection. They spiritualize
the resurrection and say that these bodies are just going to go to dust and
that's the end of it. But this
is not true. Jesus Christ is
coming and we are looking for Him and He shall appear to change these bodies
of our humiliation and make them like unto His body of Glory!
No where does the Bible indicate that these bodies will disintegrate
or go back to dust. God is
saving every bit of the molecules, the automical structure, whether you
cremate it, whether its destroyed to our sense of seeing, or whatever
happens to it, God never loses track of the substance.
He still knows where it is . He
is going to take those which once were the bodies we walked in for those who
went on and He's going to bring them back.
Out of those who have been sown in the earth, He's going to bring
forth a harvest of a body of His Glory!
This body of His
Glory is going to be far greater than the body that we are now in, because
the body is coming out by the resurrection power and glory of God.
Whether you come through the grave or by the change that Paul talks
about, it's still resurrection life that changes our bodies.
Even if you don't go to the grave, it's going to be His resurrection
power that brings you through that change.
And its going to be the resurrection power that brings the bodies out
of the grave. As a result, this
resurrection life that changes this physical body doesn't bring back just
the same thing that went in the grave.
Paul says that when we sow grain, what we expect is far greater than
what we sowed, isn't it? He said that's the same way it is in the resurrection. What
is sown in corruption is going to be brought forth in incorruption and is
therefore a far greater harvest than what was sown.
What am I saying? Starting
with the body, I am saying that the bodies we come into by the resurrection
life of Christ are going to be so far superior.
These bodies will be far beyond in their glory and ability, extending
farther than this body we are now in, there
will hardly be any comparison. In
fact, Paul says that he reckoned the sufferings of this present time in
this body are not even worthy to be compared with the glory that's going
to be revealed in us. It is
difficult to compare the glory of that resurrection body with the body that
we now have.
Now if this is
true, and it is, this would be a principle with God. Moses said, "Lord
show me your ways". It's
not enough to know that thus and thus is going to happen. I want to learn God's ways.
If we can learn what God is like, how He works, it's easy then to see
whether the things that come along are of God or not. So this is a principle of God that, that which comes forth by
resurrection is going to be far greater than the thing we had previously.
Now if this is true of the body, then it will also be true of the
WHAT ABOUT THE SOUL?
The soul life is
our emotional life, our mental life, as well as our will, and our ego.
Some people seem to have the idea that when we receive glorified
bodies our personalities are just going to be erased and we are going to be
a zombie out there identified with Christ.
It's true that we are going to be identified with Christ, but we are
not going to be egoless zombies. We
are going to be individuals made up into one great body.
The soul life, the mind, the intellect of that person that you are
now is going to come forth into a much greater intellect, a much greater
mind, a much greater person in the harvest of the resurrection than you ever
thought you could be in this
We cannot grasp
the glory of that which He has prepared for us as individuals, as persons,
and as souls. The soul that
sinneth shall die, but that eternal life is going to bring us into a harvest
of HIS life, mind, intellect, will, emotions, and mentality until the mind
of Christ is operating in this soul life of ours.
You talk about mental giants and geniuses - this world has never seen
the extent to which God is going to take this earthly life and bring a
harvest out of it.
us that even now the ordinary person uses less than 2% of the potential that
is in his brain. Geniuses such
as Einstein only used 10% of the potential that's in the human mind now!
You ask: "What
happened to the rest of it?" There's a corruption,
a death that's dwelling in the mind because Adam sinned and fell from grace
and the Adamic mind is under the shroud of death.
This is why the human mind is not reaching its potential.
Now we recognize that men by their bodies have strength and they can
go out and do certain things with their body.
Even men who are actually mindless, can be directed to do certain
things and their bodies still function.
But you see, the mind is so far beyond this.
My body is so limited. Our
minds are not bound to the space limitations that our bodies are bound in.
But even our minds are limited by those things we have learned.
For an example,
try to talk to an African in the deep part of the Congo or an Indian in Peru
who has never seen an airplane or an automobile.
He doesn't even know what canned food looks like.
He grew up in the jungles of South America and knows nothing about
civilization. You go in there
and learn his language and try to explain to him something about
civilization. Then explain to
him what New York City looks like. You
could not make him see that. His
mind cannot comprehend it because he has never had an introduction to that
kind of thinking. What am I
saying? I am saying there are
things we cannot comprehend because we have never had an introduction to
them, we have not seen them. Eye
hath not seen and ear hath not heard the things that God hath prepared for
them that love Him! How do we
know about them? He said He
reveals them by His spirit. So
then we come into a spirit realm that goes far beyond the realm of the mind.
You see, the
power of the mind is far greater than the power of the body.
For instance, a man that has a strong body without much of a mind can
do certain things. He might dig
a ditch or chop down a tree. But it takes someone whose soul life has been touched with
genius to write a symphony or paint a great painting. They can take a few
cents worth of canvas, a few pennies worth of paint and go to the canvas
before them and produce a masterpiece out of the creative ability that's
within them. It's not because
their arms are longer or their hands are quicker but because of the soul
life. They have an ability to create a painting on that canvas that
will sell for a million dollars. Men
have done this. They can create
music out of that soul life. Great
crowds of people would pay thousands of dollars to come and hear somebody
play a symphony that some man has created out of his mind, out of his soul
life. So we find that the realm
of the mind is more creative, it's more powerful and it rules over the body.
Your body is
under the control of your mind. It
can't do anything except what the mind tells it to do.
A body which does something that the mind does not direct it to do is
out of order and dangerous. Listen
closely because I am about to shock you with something.
If you came to see me and all of the sudden my hand reached out and
hit you in the face you'd say "what did you do that for?"
I would then tell you that I was sorry, I didn't mean to do that,
it's just an affliction I have. My
hand just does these things and flies out and hits whatever its close to.
Then if pretty soon my foot reached out and kicked you on the shin
and bruised you, you'd say "look brother, you need some help, or you
need to be tied up somewhere until you can get your body under the control
of your mind." For a body
that is not directed by the mind is dangerous.
I might also say this - a body that is directed by a corruptible mind
is also very dangerous. A body
that is directed by a mind that is full of murder, will murder, but murder
doesn't originate with the body. It
originates in the mind. You
cannot convict a person for murdering someone unless their mind was in it.
If a person is sleeping and they have a gun in their hand and in
their sleep they convulse and pull the trigger and the gun shoots somebody
and its proved that they were asleep and mentally had nothing to do with it,
you cannot convict them of first degree murder.
If they prove they were temporarily insane they can get out of it
because the law says that unless the mind directs the body, you cannot
punish the body for committing murder.
For the body is under control of the mind.
When you have a violent mind, your body can become very dangerous. If
you think the mind can't control the body go to Daniel chapter 4 and
read what happened to the king when he was given a different mind!!
But, when you have a
spiritual mind, then your body can become very productive and beneficial
because the body is ruled over by the mind.
NOW THE SPIRIT REALM
Here we'll find
that the spirit rules over the mind. The
Bible says as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
If wrong spirits get into you, they'll put wrong thoughts in your
mind. In I Peter it says to
gird up the loins of your mind. Now
the loins are the reproductive part of the body.
So what is Peter talking about when he says the loins of your mind?
It's that which receives the seeds of thought.
The Bible says in II Corinthians 2 that we are not ignorant of
Satan's devices. That work
"devices" comes from a word which means to devise, or to think up.
It's the Greek work "noema" which is also translated other
places in the Bible as "thoughts".
So we are not ignorant of Satan's thoughts. Satan is a spirit and if a wrong spirit gets into you, it
will place wrong thoughts in your mind or in your soul life.
If you are filled with the wrong kind of a spirit, it will corrupt
your soul life until your soul begins to crave wrong things.
When your soul craves them, your body will actually begin to taste of
these things and crave them. Eventually
you set up a craving in your body for certain things that are wrong and
Now we are not
ignorant of the devil's thoughts because Satan, who is a spirit, would like
to bring thoughts and put a seed in our mind. And the Bible says when sin is
conceived, it bringeth forth death. So,
there are three spirits in the world, the spirit of Satan, the spirit of man
and the spirit of God. And Paul
said to the Church, I want to present you as a chaste and pure virgin unto
the Lord. What does that mean?
It means that the Church doesn't receive any thoughts, any ideas, any
work from any other spirit except the spirit of the living God.
When you have a
wrong spirit in the church it will begin to manifest itself with wrong ideas
and those ideas are expressed in actions through our bodies.
A lying demon craves expression by having someone tell a lie.
So if that lying demon can get into you, it will cause you to be what
the psychiatrists say is a compulsive liar.
I knew a man like that. He
was a compulsive liar, he had a lying demon.
He would lie even when it would make him more money to tell the
truth. He would lie about his
insurance policies he was selling. He
would lie to the policy holder. He'd
lie about how much he had sold
even though it wasn't necessary. He
just had a lying demon that craved expression.
is an alcohol demon. It is not satisfied until there is an expression and
the body is taking in alcohol. Then
that demon is expressing itself. If
you don't express that thing, you begin to get the jitters. You know what I am talking about. You begin to say "I've got to have a drink".
If you've got an alcohol spirit in you, you begin to crave alcohol.
A narcotic demon
also craves expression. This is
why they say they've got a monkey on their back even when they kick the
habit. They think that
physically they are delivered, but mentally they are not delivered because
they've got that spirit in there that's craving expression.
demon craves expression and he wants people to murder somebody.
This is why you read in the papers about senseless murders where
there was no reason or rhyme to it at all.
They had no reason to murder anyone.
It wasn't out of a fit of anger, they killed someone they didn't even
know. What was it?
It was a demon of murder inside of them driving them to express that
demon's nature by murdering someone.
A suicide demon
creates a desire and people begin to think about suicide.
People actually lay awake at night thinking of ways to kill
themselves. They think it would
be better if they were dead. What
is that? It's a suicide demon
that's trying to come into their minds and plant seeds and create something
that will drive them to the place where they will take their lives.
is the first law of nature and its very difficult for a suicide demon to
make people commit suicide. They
have to really get a hold of them and drive them because we resist that very
thought. But the more you let
that thing feed the stronger it gets. As
you think of it, you are feeding that spirit.
You are letting him plant that seed in you when you let your mind
dwell on those thoughts. We are
not ignorant of Satan's thoughts and when he begins to give thoughts to our
minds that are not right, we know these are Satan's thoughts and we know it
is the wrong spirit.
You may look at
someone across the isle from you at church and have an evil thought about
them. Whether it might be lust
or anger or some bitterness, you look at someone and you have an evil
thought. God did not put that
evil thought in your heart. That
thought came from another spirit.
You might look
at someone and have a thought of jealousy or envy. You might wish you were as well dressed as the other person.
But God did not put that thought in your heart.
I like what a brother of mine said just recently.
He said "if you are wishing that you were doing what somebody
else is doing, then you are not believing that you are doing what you ought
to be doing".. Hallelujah!
So quit wishing and looking at someone else, the Spirit does not give
these thoughts. It's a wrong
spirit because spirits are of a higher order than the mentality and they
plant seeds in the mind and the mind might express them through the body.
For you see, the spirit is the head of the soul as the soul is the
head of the body. Let me put it
says that God is the head of Christ, I Corinthians 11:3, and Christ
is the head of the man. So we have God, Christ and the man. We recognize that the body of Christ in the earth is the
expression of Christ here on this earth.
This is what the world sees when they see you. They see the expression of your mind through what happens in
your body, through the way you look at them, and the way you express
yourself. If you walk up face
to face with someone, you don't know what they are thinking about unless
they either stick their hand out and say "Brother, I like you.
Shake hands with me", or whether they haul off and slap you in
the face. You can tell pretty
quick by the expression of the body what they are thinking about you.
So the Body of
Christ, His people, are the expression of Christ in the earth and He is our
mind. We have the mind of
Christ. He directs the
activities of the body. So that
as our mind directs our physical body, so Christ directs the Church.
The Bible says that God is the head of Christ.
"God", Jesus said, "is Spirit".
He also said "My Father is greater than I".
The Father directed every step Jesus took.
As God is the head of Christ, so the spirit realm is the head of the
soul realm and the soul realm is under the direction of what kind of spirit
we have. This is why we are interested in helping people to receive
the baptism of the Holy Spirit. (please click on article Holy Spirit and
read prayfully) They need to
have the first fruits of the Spirit begin to work in their lives and press
on into the fullness of the Spirit until they are filled with all the
fullness of God! For as we
receive the fullness of God and let that fullness work in our spirit, our
minds are going to be revitalized and we are going to be thinking the
thoughts of God and directing our bodies until our soul life is going to
come into an immortality and an unending life. And
its going to create something in our bodies until these bodies will be
changed by that which is within us!
Oh, I hope I can
express this to you in such a way that you can see it.
I know I'm repeating myself, but I am trying to let you see
something. We are so interested
in the body. Oh, I tell you,
what if there was a fellow across the street preaching and the word got out
that anybody who had any kind of sickness who walked in there, every one of
them, 100% of them, would be healed of anything that was wrong with them.
Everyone would go see him. We
are very interested in this body. But
brother, we are after bigger gain than this.
We are desirous of getting the spirit so filled with God and God
completely in control of the mind. Then
the soul life of man will come into union with God until this body changes
into His likeness. Glory!
We have had very
little information on just what our spirit consists of.
So we have never had much interest in it.
We were more interested than anything in our body because we know a
whole lot more about our bodies than we do about our mind or spirit.
Yet we've recognized that actually we would rather lose an arm than
lose our mind. We'd rather lose
both legs than to go insane. We've
gone that far at least that we want to keep our mind.
We want to be who we are. We
don't want to lose our identity, our recognition, our consciousness of who
we are in this world and the next world, even if our bodies are destroyed. So we recognize the soul life is greater than the body and
more important to us. The mind
is more creative and more powerful than the body, so the spirit is far more
powerful and more creative than the mind!
God is bringing forth a spirit people that are going to be creators
and rulers and kings and priests, not in the psychic realm, but in the
spirit realm. Hallelujah!
SPIRIT POWER OR PSYCHIC POWER?
"Quote of a
trusted friend of mine" I
just about got caught up one time in this power that is in the psychic
realm. I was a state trainer
for an insurance company in the state of Kansas.
I trained these men how to sell door to door, cold canvas and it was
pretty hard selling. It was
strictly a commission basis. It
was hard to stay with it and you really had to know how to sell in order to
make any money. We lost a lot
of men because they didn't have the determination to stay with it.
They sent these men to me and I had to train them.
They gave me textbooks on the power of positive thinking and all the
power there is in the psychic realm. I
trained these men and I saw it work. I
would sit across the table from a potential customer and they were declaring
they didn't have the money, they didn't have the need or desire and I could
just see in my mind them writing their name on that order blank.
Do you know before I left there, they signed their name just like I
saw it in my mind. I found out
that I could create an image in my mind and I could make that thing work and
I could make them do what I wanted them to do by the power there was in the
psychic realm. I trained the
men to sell just in this way.
Then I was
reading more along this line and I said:
"Lord, you know that the greatest thing in life that I desire is
to be a son of God, to be in the image of Jesus Christ. So if this thing works out there selling insurance in the
business world and men make millions of dollars this way, it can work for me
too. There are business men who
have built their empires this way. These
men have the confidence, the determination, the faith and the power to back
it up in their minds so they can accomplish whatever they want to do.
So why wouldn't this principle work in the spiritual realm?
So I decided to put this thing to work and I was going to declare
these things and make it work for the spiritual things I wanted.
And so you know, someone who didn't know me, didn't know what I was
going through, called me long distance.
Numbers of times he would talk to me for 45 minutes telling me this
very thing. He knew all about
these formulas and what you had to do to be powerful, have riches, etc. So I thought well, that must be a confirmation.
Then the Spirit of the Lord woke me up.,
He said, "Son, you can go that route if you want to.
For there is a power in the psychic realm, there is a power in the
soul. But if you are willing to
only settle for the soul life, you are going to miss My best, for the
power of the spirit life goes far beyond the power of the soul life." -
I have seen men
today get into the psychic realm in the things of God and declare certain
things and make them work. I've
seen people get healed from the psychic realm.
How do you think that Christian Scientists get people healed?
You don't think they do? Go
around and check up on some of the cases.
Some of them are not even saved.
Some psychiatrists and doctors use faith in their mental realm to
convince people that they can be healed of whatever is wrong with them.
They get people healed and their physical bodies changed because
there is a power in that psychic realm.
God said that is on a lower realm.
He has something far higher. The
psychic realm is limited by the limitations of our minds.
However, there is a realm that is unlimited which is in the Holy of
Holies. This place is beyond
the veil where men have not seen. It
is a place we are coming to where God rules upon His throne.
Its the Spirit realm that God is going to rule in because our minds
are going to be under the control of our spirits.
God must rule in our spirits. If
God ruled in your mind and yet your spirit was not right with God, things
would get into a turmoil within your life.
This is the
greatest hour that has come upon the human race. We have come to that hour now when all nature is going to be
brought into right relationship with God.
A people are going to enter into the spirit realm and come into the
fullness of God in their spirit. We
will find out the creativeness, the power, and the force that there is in
the realm of the Holy Sprit, when we enter into that realm of the Holy
Spirit in fullness. I'm not
talking about spooks, and demons and things like that.
I am talking about the fact that we all have a spirit. The spirit of man the Bible says is the candle of the Lord.
A lot of people's candles are out.
They have been dead in trespasses and sin, but when they accept
Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes in and the first thing He does is light that
candle and let the light begin to shine within them.
As the Sprit of God begins to take over, they begin to think
differently. Men who walk with
God think differently. Their
minds are filled with different things than the minds of the people in the
world. You can see it on the
news stands, on the marques of the picture shows and other places, you can
see what has been created by the minds of men whose spirits have been given
over into the hands of demon powers. The
world today, America especially, and also Sweden and Denmark and some of
these other countries have been filled with immorality and a low realm of
sex lust. Men's minds have been
infiltrated by demons of lust. Their
minds have created books, magazines and movies that have led our young
people astray because they fill their minds with those things.
I want you to know, we don't have it at our house.
We won't let it in. We
play gospel music in our home and in our car so that the gospel message is
going out into their minds and lives. As
a result we didn't have problems with our young people as far as this thing
is concerned. God help us to let the Spirit of God come in with the right
kind of thoughts. Pray that you
and your children will be filled with the Holy Ghost.
Get earnest and sincere about this.
daughter got saved, I began to talk to God about filling her with the Holy
Ghost. You say "a
child?" Brother, I want
you to know they begin to hear things when they get into kindergarten that
would make you blush. They hear
things from other little kids who hear them in homes where God is not
honored. These children bring
them to school and I tell you, it's amazing the things that our children
hear at school. So I began to
talk to the Lord about it. We just asked the Lord to fill her with His Holy

have an entrance into our children's hearts to put the right kind of
thoughts into their minds. The
Bible says "be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the

find out the creativeness, the power, the force that there is in the Holy
Spirit when we enter into that realm of the Holy Spirit in fullness.
