The latter would be given training and a choice of four occupations. He has also served as Chairman of the Good People charity organization since February The spirit is the fourth dimension. Every human being is a spiritual being as well as a physical being.

They have the fourth dimension as well as the third dimension in their hearts. This is what the Holy Spirit taught me. They probably said. Evening came and Abraham was walking far down in the valley. She is calling her husband Abraham. Do you like smiles in your home? Do you like to have a smile in your businesses and churches?

Use the law of faith! Then you can see the birth of Isaac again and again in your life. Sarah prepared a meal and she called to her husband.

The village people stopped working. I claim that I could build a church which has more than 0. God is going to cooperate with you to accomplish great things. Do not try to find the answer of God through another person. What becomes pregnant in your heart and mind is going to come out in your circumstances.

God is dwelling within you. Miracles come not by blindly struggling. God spoke and the whole world came into being. God stopped manifesting His power.

God used Moses and Joshua. God is the same. Watch your heart and your mind more than anything else. God cannot manifest himself to them. God wants to manifest Himself through you today. Your word is the material which the Holy Spirit. He is just as powerful as He was before. Claim and speak the word of assurance. There are laws in the spiritual realm. The Bible says to heal the sick. So give the word. The Egyptians are coming.

He commanded the devil to leave. We Christians are becoming perennial beggars. He commanded the sea to be calm. On the bank of the Red Sea Moses begged. And His disciples did exactly the same thing. The church today has lost the art of giving commands. In James the Bible says. Give the command and the Red Sea shall be divided.

When you read the life of Jesus Christ you see that He always gave the command. You must pray through in your prayer closet. Rise up in the name of Jesus Christ! He prayed all night. To the beggar Peter commanded. A few months ago I was holding a meeting in a Western country.

I plainly stand before them and claim. Rise and stand up! She was so frightened when I called out her healing she shrieked and fainted. She is so twisted. I wonder if Jesus Christ Himself could lift her up. At the close of the sermon the Holy Spirit suddenly spoke in my heart.

I asked. I would look one way. One evening in the meeting we had about 1. First a blind lady was healed. She was so badly twisted that I felt depressed. Then people began to be healed all over the auditorium. I kept calling out healings continuously but the Holy Spirit kept saying to me.

Many people come and ask me whether I have the gift of faith. I believe that is because it is the Holy Spirit who has the gifts.

He dwells within us. When I turned around all the people had started shouting and clapping their hands. I do not have any of the gifts. I slipped down and spoke with a whisper so people would not hear me. I was foolish. What kind of gift do I have? I will tell you the one gift I. The Holy Spirit manifests Himself through me. You have the resources within you.

The Bible does not say that a sign shall go ahead of you. Abide by the law of incubation. Chapter 2. Get a clear-cut goal and objective. With this gift of boldness we just launch out by faith. Then begin to speak the word about which you have been given assurance. Have a desire that burns to the boiling point. He took her to a grotto where many were praying. You cannot put these things away simply as a manifestation of the devil.

In America ministers do not have this kind of problem. When attending meetings of the Japanese Sokagakkai. The most important lessons that I have learned about the nature of the realm of faith began as a result of what was at first an unpleasant experience. The Fourth Dimension As there are certain steps that we must follow in order for our faith to be properly incubated. She went to many churches. In Korea many people involved in yoga are healing the sick by yoga meditation.

Just recently in Korea one woman was dying from a case of terminal cancer. But if the devil could do these things. So naturally we Christians. Now I can give a satisfying reply to any of those questions. They said. And from that time on I began to explain these things through my lectures in my church in Korea. I was quite troubled one day. Then a glorious revelation came to my heart. Why should we claim Jehovah God as the only creator of the universe?

Let me explain it to you. How can we call the Jehovah God the unique creator in heavenly places? We see miracles in Buddhism. So I made their questions a matter of prayer before God. We see many miracles in the Oriental religions. I fasted and prayed. This chaotic world belonged to the third dimension. You have the answer when you open the Bible and read in Genesis 1: Who then creates. But if you add line upon line by the hundreds of thousands. The material world and the whole earth belong to the third dimension.

This first dimension. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And if you stack up planes one upon another then it becomes cubic.

It is just one line between the points. When you study geometry you put up two points. Then God spoke to my heart. They have the fourth dimension as well as the third dimension in their hearts. Since the spiritual world hugged the third dimension. The spirit is the fourth dimension. So the spiritual kingdom of faith belongs to the fourth dimension.

This is what the Holy Spirit taught me. Everything was created beautiful and wonderful by the incubation of the fourth dimension. So naturally these yoga people and Buddhist believers could explore and develop their human fourth dimension.

Every human being is a spiritual being as well as a physical being. A new order was given out of the old. God gave power to human beings to control the material world and to have dominion over material things. They belong to Satan. Then the Holy Spirit said to me. Now unbelievers.

By natural order the fourth dimension has power over the third dimension. We can become fantastically creative. After receiving this revelation from the Lord I began to easily explain the happenings and miracles of other religions.

People would come and challenge me. You are developing your spirit and carrying out dominion over your body and circumstances. The fourth dimension has the power to carry out dominion over the third dimension. You do have certain limited powers to carry out dominion over the third dimension. But that spirit is not a spirit with salvation. I know you can. Now scientists and psychologists make a great affair of this discovery. Before psychology found the subconscious.

Apostle Paul had already discovered it 2. The subconscious has certain influence. The Bible calls the subconscious the inner man. I was amazed coming to America and reading the books some American ministers gave me. What is the subconscious? The subconscious is your spirit. The Bible had that truth 2. I have begun to see in America the Unitarian Church try to develop the subconscious.

Though the subconscious is in the fourth dimension. In much the same manner the Holy Spirit incubates the third dimension. There was a certain truth in that. He was like a hen sitting on her eggs.

While we do recognize certain realities and truths in these teachings. The fourth dimension is always creating and giving order. I was watching the television news in the U. He was incubating on those acts of violence. In Genesis the Spirit of the Lord was incubating. Visions and dreams are the language of the fourth dimension. You may wonder how we can incubate our subconscious. But we are so limited in space and time. The Language of the Fourth Dimension My ministry has been revolutionized by discovering the truth of the fourth dimension.

Let me substantiate this with scriptural examples. This is the reason the Holy Spirit comes to cooperate with us—to create. We dwell in limited bodies. Only through a vision and a dream can you visualize and dream bigger churches.

You can visualize a new mission field.

Through envisioning and dreaming dreams we can kick away the wall of limitations. Through visualizing and dreaming you can incubate your future and hatch the results. Then she felt so attracted to that tree.

She looked at that tree not only once. Eve brought that picture of the tree and fruit deep into her imagination. If seeing is not important. Looking at it is harmless. Eve went and looked at the fruit of the tree. The Bible says in Genesis. The devil used a tactic based on this premise. Do you know why Adam and Eve fell from grace? In the fourth dimension either good or evil is created.

And with that action. She played with the idea of eating the fruit. In Genesis But since he had no binoculars and no helicopter.

I wish he could have had a helicopter. For all the land which thou seest. You might say that the judgement was too harsh. God has been using this language of the Holy Spirit to change many lives.

God told him to stand from his place. Look carefully when you read Genesis She received that grievous judgement just because she looked back. Lust for her former life began to take hold of her. Just claim it.

They were both unbelieving. God asked. So we can imagine Abraham kept on counting and. One night God said to Abraham. But God had a way to make them believe. We also see that Sarah laughed behind the tent. Scientists say that with the human eye we can count 6. When God came to him and said. This means that Abraham was totally unbelieving. It is interesting that Abraham got his child Isaac when he was one hundred years old. Abraham came out. The Holy Spirit began to carry out dominion.

Abraham saw the land. In his fourth dimension the Holy Spirit began to use that language. God came and told him that he was going to have a child.

When Abraham was almost one hundred years old. Seeing is possession. Later on in the Bible you can read how King Abimelech tried to make Sarah his concubine: Who could change Abraham so much?

The Holy Spirit. Soon tears began to well up in his eyes. Those pictures immediately became part of his fourth dimension. When he looked up at the stars. From that time on he believed the Word of God. These visions and dreams carried dominion over his one-hundred-year old body. He could not sleep when he closed his eyes. A vision and dream changed Abraham. He finally said. The church is doing all the better. I learned that even while I minister in foreign countries I can go into the fourth dimension of the Holy Spirit.

And even though our church has more than I call my wife about every two days. We are not common animals. I use the way of faith. When God created us He created in us the fourth dimension. I used to think that the members of my church would be very anxious for my return from my trips abroad.

She would say. Then God said. There is a magnificent story about Jacob in Genesis This is all superstition. Nothing in the Bible is superstition.

You are blind. I had always disliked the portion of scripture in verses 37 through I would skip it. This is the reason the Modernists are criticizing the Bible. Applying the Law of the Fourth Dimension If God could use Abraham to possess the land through the miraculous fourth dimension.

I again came to these verses and said. One day while reading the Bible under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. You watch. In this part of his life. He said. After receiving this revelation from the Lord. He stayed for about twenty years. He thought to himself. They were deceiving each other. Then a tremendous unveiling of truth came to me. God felt sorry for Jacob. And if someway these solid colored animals give birth to spotted and speckled offspring. But his uncle changed the salary so many times that Jacob was being deceived.

Jacob went to his uncle. Jacob was in turn also deceiving his uncle. If you do not use the miraculous laws of faith you cannot hope to see a thousand new members added to your church each month. Those solid colored animals. The Bible says that soon afterward all those animals gave birth to spotted and speckled offspring.

Jacob looked at that wall so much that his mind became. His subconscious before had been full of poverty. He made a wall out of those now spotted and speckled tree rods. Now I can use him without paying much salary. There Jacob would stand.

Jacob went out to the mountain. God created a vision and dream in the mind of Jacob. When Jacob began to learn the language of the Holy Spirit. Jacob soon began to have a vast multitude of spotted and speckled animals. You can converse with another person only through a known language. Animals can never have an imagination in the way we do.

There are over 8. You can rather take the promises. You do not need to go to the mountain to cut down a hazel. The Holy Spirit punched the proper keys for the necessary genes. In the next chapter we read that the cattle did give birth to spotted and speckled offspring. Long after Jacob. God put up another spotted and speckled tree. So if a driver hit. Later an urgent telephone call came in the early morning hours of Christmas day.

A man calling from Seoul National Hospital asked. A taxi hit him. He was in a car accident. Now let me share something from my personal experience with you.

One Christmas Eve I was busy preparing a sermon. These promises. Anybody and everybody can come gaze upon this spotted and speckled tree. And this tree was not spotted and speckled by a penknife. The man did not die. Since it was late evening and no one saw. Medically speaking. This member had bought a beautiful hat. We could do nothing. The doctor again said there would be no hope. His doctor knew me and called. When we opened his stomach.

He was without medical attention for such a long time that blood poisoning has set in. There is no hope. He was so carried away with the joy of giving these presents. The impact of the accident had badly impaired his intestines. There will be no way for us to cure him? He is dying. Evening arrives and he buys nice gifts for his wife.

He goes to his office. Change your vision and dream. He says good-bye to his wife. When he arrives she rushes out to the gate and welcomes him with a big hug and kiss. Picture a young man. Let him come out of the coma for five minutes. You must change your imagination and thinking. I opened my eyes. As long as you keep saying that you will die. They go into the house. I replied. I knelt beside him and said. I knew then that I had five minutes. I command this man to be whole and to be filled with healing power!

He has a vision and a dream. But I was serious. While we were talking this surgeon had come in with his nurses. That man is you!

Think of that man! Draw that picture in your mind. Keep on dreaming about that man. Rush into his physical body. Like a missionary on a foreign field who gains a deeper level of communication with the local people of that country by learning to speak their language directly. Look at that man and say in your heart. You just draw a mental picture. They started giggling and laughing at me. As I knelt down and grabbed hold of his bed.

Will you do that? The surgeon and those nurses began to feel fire. I say to myself. Suddenly the group of unbelieving nurses said. There was no heat. She has become a hippie. He is now in the chemical business. The heat is too high. Their ears turned red. We created. One day I was in my office. Whenever I see him on Sunday morning.

My boys are dying. Pastor Cho. She is a prostitute! You were presenting the wrong kind of mental blueprint to Him. I thought I would choke. As I opened my mouth, blood began to gush out.

I tried to stop the bleeding, but blood continued to flow from my nostrils and mouth. My stomach and chest soon filled with blood. Severely weakened, I fainted.

When I returned to consciousness everything seemed to be spinning. Shaken, I barely managed to travel home. I was nineteen years old. And I was dying. Go Home, Young Man Frightened, my parents immediately sold enough of their possessions to take me to a famous hospital for treatment.

When I heard their assessment, I realized how badly I wanted to live. My desires for the future were to end before I even had the chance to start fully living. Desperate, I turned to the physician who had pronounced the grim diagnosis. This type of tuberculosis is very unusual. It is spreading so fast that there is no way to arrest it. Go home, young man. Eat anything you want. Say good-bye to your friends. I passed hundreds of refugees on the streets, and felt a kindred spirit.

Feeling totally alone, I was one of the hopeless. I returned home in a dazed condition. Ready to die, I hung a three month calendar on the wall. Raised a Buddhist, I prayed daily that Buddha would help me. But no hope came, and I grew continually worse. Sensing that my time to live was shortening, I gave up faith in Buddha.

It was then that I began to cry to the unknown God. Little did I know how great an impact His response would have on my life. Touching Tears A few days later a high school girl visited me, and began to talk about Jesus Christ. These stories seemed nonsense to me. I neither accepted her stories, nor paid much attention to this ignorant young female. Her departure left me with one emotion: But the next day she returned. She came again and again, every time troubling me with stories about the God-man, Jesus.

After more than a week of these visits, I became greatly agitated, and roughly rebuked her.

She did not run away in shame, nor retaliate in anger. She simply knelt down, and began to pray for me. Large tears rolled down her cheeks, reflecting a compassion foreign to my wellorganized and sterile Buddhist philosophies and rituals. When I saw her tears, my heart was deeply touched. There was something different in this young girl.

She was not reciting religious stories to me; she was living what she believed. Through her love and tears I could feel the presence of God. I am sorry. I now know about your Christian love. Since I am dying I will become a Christian for you. Her face brightened into a glow, and she praised God. Shaking hands with me, she gave me her Bible. Constantly struggling to gasp air into my lungs, I opened to the Book of Genesis. Turning the pages to Matthew, she smiled: If you start from the Book of Matthew, you will have enough time.

This is only a story of one man begetting another. I would rather read a telephone directory. But as you read on, these names will come to hold special meaning for you. The Living Lord As I read I did not find any systematized philosophies, any theories of medical science, or any religious rituals. But I did find one striking theme: The imminence of my death had brought me to the realization that I needed something greater than a religion, greater than a philosophy, and even greater than sympathy for the trials of human existence.

I needed someone who could share my struggles and sufferings, someone who could give me victory. The Person Jesus Christ was not bringing a religion, a code of ethics, nor a series of rituals. In a profoundly practical way, Jesus was bringing salvation to humanity.

Hating sin, Christ loved the sinner, accepting all who came to Him. Deeply aware of my sins, I knew I needed His forgiveness. Christ healed the sick. The ill and infirm came to Him, and He healed all He touched. This put faith in my heart. I became hopeful that He might heal me, too. Christ gave peace to the troubled. There is no reason to fear! Christ gave confidence, faith and peace to those who came to receive help.

This tremendous message thrilled my heart. Christ raised the dead. I never found one incident in the Bible where Christ conducted a funeral service. He brought the dead to life, changing funeral services into magnificent resurrections. During the Korean War many people lost their families and businesses.

Suffering from nervous breakdowns, many became completely possessed by the devil. Bereft of shelter, they wandered aimlessly around the streets. Christ was even ready to meet this challenge.

He cast out demons and restored the possessed to a life of normalcy. Convinced that Jesus Christ was alive and moved by the vitality of His ministry, I knelt down. I asked Christ to come into my heart, to save, heal and deliver me from death. I knew that I was saved. The Bible supplied foundation for all the faith I needed. Despite the prognosis and old feelings of fear, I soon knew I was going to live.

Instead of dying in three months, I was out of my deathbed in six. Since that time I had been preaching the dynamic Gospel of Jesus Christ. The girl whose name I never knew taught me the most precious name I will ever know. Through the years God has helped me to understand several important principles of faith. These are the principles I share with you in the chapters that follow, in order that you can enter a deeper dimension and more abundant life.

Christ is unchanging. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Christ wants to bear your burdens. Jesus can forgive and heal you. He can cast out Satan, and give you confidence, faith and peace. Christ wants to give you life eternal and be a present part of your daily living.

The Fourth Dimension Volume 1 - David Yonggi salelive.info - Free Download PDF

While thieves come to kill and destroy, Jesus Christ comes to give you life, life full and free. Through the presence of the Holy Spirit, Jesus is with you right now. Christ desires to heal you, and to deliver you from death. He is your living Lord. Put your faith in Jesus Christ, and expect a miracle today. Chapter 1 Incubation: A Law of Faith G od will never bring about any of His great works without coming through your own personal faith.

It is taken for granted that you have faith, for the Bible says that God has dealt to each and every one of us a measure of faith. You have faith whether you feel it or not. You may try to feel faith, but when you need faith, then faith is there. It is there for your use, like having two arms; when you need to use them, you just reach out your arms and move them. I do not need to feel that my two arms are hanging on my shoulders to know that I have them.

There are, however, certain ways your faith works, and links you to the Heavenly Father who dwells within you. The Bible says that faith is the substance of things hoped for, a substance which first has a stage of development—of incubation—before its usage can be full and effective. Envision a Clear-cut Objective First,to use your faith you must be able to envision a clearcut objective.

Faith is the substance of things, clear-cut things, hoped for. If you have only a vague idea about your goal, then you are out of touch with the One who could answer your prayer.

You must have a clear and defined faith goal. I learned this lesson in a very peculiar situation. I had been in the ministry for quite a few months, and was so poverty-stricken that, as far as material things are concerned, I had nothing. I was not married, and was living in one small room.

I had no desk, no chair, and no bed and was eating on the floor, sleeping on the floor and studying on the floor, but walking miles and miles everyday to carry out soul winning. The Bible said that if I would just put my faith in Jesus, praying in His name, that I would receive everything.

The Bible also taught me that I was the son of God, a child of the King of kings, and of the Lord of lords! Why should a child of the King of kings, and of the Lord of lords, live without a desk, chair and bed, and walk mile after mile everyday?

At least I should have a humble desk and chair to sit on, and a humble bicycle to ride on to do my home visitation. Please send me a desk, chair and bicycle. From that moment on I was waiting for the delivery of each thing I had prayed for. A month passed with no answer. Then two months, three, four, five, six, and still I was waiting; but nothing happened. Now you see me as I am here preaching the Gospel to the poverty stricken people of this slum area. How can I ask them to exercise faith when I cannot even practice it myself?

How can I ask them to put their faith in the Lord, and truly live by the Word, and not by bread? I am very discouraged. I am not sure about this, but I do know I cannot deny the Word of God.

If you are going to answer my prayer after my death, what kind of profit will that have for me? If you are ever going to answer my prayer, please speed it up. Suddenly I felt a serenity, and a feeling of tranquility come into my soul. Whenever I have that kind of feeling, a sense of the presence of God, He always speaks;so I waited. You never ordered a specific desk, chair or bicycle. No professor in the Bible college ever taught me along these lines.

I had made a mistake, and it was an eye opener for me. I made a great mistake, and I misunderstood you. I cancel all my past prayers. I wanted the best kind of chair, one made with an iron frame, and with rollers on the tips, so that when I sat on it I could push myself around like a big shot.

Then I came to the bicycle, and I really gave much consideration to the matter, because there were so many kinds of bicycles: Korean, Japanese, Formosan, German.

But in those days bicycles made in Korea or Japan were usually quite flimsy. I wanted to have a very strong, sturdy bicycle; and since any machine made in the U. Then I felt faith flowing up and out of my heart, and I was rejoicing in the Lord; that night I slept like a baby. But when I awoke at 4: The evening before, I had all the faith in the world, but while I slept faith took wing and left me.

I could not feel anything in my heart. They have a special guest speaker, and are filled with faith when he ministers to them, but before they reach their homes they have lost it all.

Their faith takes wing and flies away. On that morning while I was reading the Bible, and looking for a particular scripture to speak on, suddenly my eyes fell upon Romans 4: I rushed out to our tent church where the people had already begun praying, and after a few songs I started preaching.

Praise God! I was bragging about these things, and they could not believe their ears. In faith I was really praising God, doing just as the Word of God told me to do. These people were living in a slum area, and once they knew I had lied, it would be my last time to minister there. They would never come back. It was your idea for me to tell it like that. I said it as if I had it, and now how can I explain this? You gave me the right answer. Last evening I knelt down here and prayed to the Lord for that desk, chair and bicycle, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, I conceived that desk, chair and bicycle.

And they are as much a desk, chair and bicycle as when they will be seen by people at the time of their delivery. I could hardly walk through that town because women would gather to look at me and giggle. It just takes time, as a mother takes time to give birth to a child. It takes time for you, too, because you become pregnant with all of your clear-cut objectives.

I was praising the Lord, and sure enough, when the time came, I had every one of those things. I brought that desk, chair and bicycle into my house and was completely changed in my prayer attitude.

Until that time I had always prayed in vague terms, but from that time until now I have never prayed in vague terms. If God were ever to answer your vague prayers, then you would never recognize that prayer as being answered by God.

You must ask definitely and specifically. The Lord never welcomes vague prayers. But before he asked specifically for the healing of his blindness, Christ never pronounced the healing. When you bring your request to the Lord, come with a specific request, with a definite objective, with a clear-cut goal. God knows all. God never works by Himself, but only through you. God is the eternal source, but He only works through your requests.

Do you really want me to pray for you? Number one: Write it down. Number two: Number three: Number four: Number five: Can you see your husband now? You must see him clearly before you begin to pray.

God never answers vague prayers. I see her husband. You know her husband. We order him in the name of Jesus Christ. Every evening before you go to sleep read those ten points aloud, and every morning when you get up read those ten points aloud, and praise God for the answer. She got married! You asked her to write down those ten points? What happened? He was a single man, and all of the young girls were crazy about him;they wanted to date him, but this guy was nonchalant to the young girls.

Yet he was fascinated with this older spinster. He was always hanging around her, and before he left he asked her to marry him. Eventually she not so reluctantly gave her consent.

They were happily married in that church, and on their marriage day her mother took that paper written with the ten points, and read it publicly before the people, then tore it up. I want to remind you of one thing: God is within you. God never works anything independently of you that concerns your life.

God is only going to work through your thinking, through your beliefs; so, whenever you want to receive answers from the Lord, bring out that clear-cut objective. Over 8, promises. Take out your notebook, write it down, see it clearly. I always ask God to give a revival to my church according to a definite number. Last year we received more than 12, members in our church.

I lifted my goal higher this year, and we are now going to have 15, additional members; next year I can easily ask for 20, If you have a definite request, and if you really see it, then you can have it. When I was building the present church structure, which seats 10,, even before they poured the concrete, I saw it clearly in my imagination.

I walked hundreds of times in that building, and I felt the magnificent presence of the Holy Spirit there. I felt the magnitude of that church, a thrill to my heart. You must see your objective so vividly and graphically that you can really feel it in your emotions.

If you do not exercise this law of faith you can never really get an answer to everything you request. Now in my prayers I always try to see clearly. I want to see my objective so vividly that I feel a thrill in my heart.

It is then that this first condition is completed. Have A Burning Desire Secondly, if you have a vivid picture, you should have a burning desire for those objectives. That kind of attitude will never bring the faith and touch of God. You need to have a burning desire. Proverbs When I started my ministry in , I had a burning desire in my soul, a burning goal to build the largest church in Korea.

That desire was burning in me so much that I was living with it, sleeping with it, and walking with it. Now after twenty years it has been said that my church is the largest church in the world.

You have to have a burning desire in your heart. If you do not have a burning desire, then wait and ask God to impart His desire to your heart. God does not like the lukewarm, for He specializes only in the red-hot; if you have that red-hot burning desire, then you are going to have results. Pray for Assurance Third, you must have the substance, or assurance.

When I was conducting a meeting in Hawaii, one Japanese woman came and asked me how long she should pray to receive assurance. I told her that sometimes it takes only a minute, and if she would have peace and assurance in her heart in that instant, she would not need to pray any longer.

Everything is rush, rush, rush. Soon they start losing the time to have fellowship with family and friends, and even the time to wait upon the Lord. Everything seems instant: Americans have often turned churches into a place for lengthy entertainment.

In Korea we have gotten rid of all that entertainment. We make our announcements very short, with the Word of God taking preeminence. After preaching the Word of God we have two or three specials—then we conclude. But the Word of God is always uppermost. I had been invited to speak in an evening service at a church in Alabama. We have a wonderful television program coming on tonight, so I want you to preach for only ten minutes.

In a church there needs to be a long time of waiting upon the Lord, and of praising Him, as well as a solid preaching of the Word of God; that builds faith. And you must wait upon the Lord until you get the assurance.

When we needed five million dollars to build the church already contracted, I had a clear-cut vision, a clear-cut goal, and a burning desire to build this church which would seat 10, people.

But my heart was full of fear. I was shaky, fearful, and I had no assurance. I was like a frightened rabbit, and that five million dollars looked like Mount Everest.

To rich foreigners a million dollars may mean relatively little; but to Koreans a million dollars means a great deal of money. So I began to pray like a person dying. But still I have no assurance. A month passed, and still I had no peace and no assurance. A second month passed and I was praying into the middle of the nights.

I would roll out of the bed and go to the corner and cry, sobbing my heart out. My wife thought that I was losing my mind, but I was mentally blinded. I would just stand, without thinking, worrying about the five million dollars. And this great title deed, the substance and the assurance, were imparted into my soul. Are you all right? Sit down. Really crazy. I prayed with assurance.

My faith reached out, and I grabbed hold that five million dollars; it was mine. I got the substance, and once you have the substance— the title deed, the legal paper—whether you see those things or not, legally those things are bound to come to you because legally those things belong to you. So pray through until you have this assurance. I prayed through the early part of this year and God gave me the assurance of a total of 50, members in my church.

So I claimed it, and in my heart I see 50, members. Those members are inside of me, growing, and as the vision grows inside of me, the same is growing outside. This is the secret: Speak the Word Fourth, you should show evidence of your faith. The Bible says God raised the dead. They had a clear-cut goal—to have a son. They had a burning desire to have this son, and they prayed for twentyfive years. Eventually God gave them a promise, and when they received the assurance, God immediately changed their names: Your name is no more Sarai;but Sarah.

The village people stopped working. Oh, we feel sorry for her.

They talked back to each other: Do you like smiles in your home? Do you like to have a smile in your businesses and churches? Use the law of faith!

Then you can see the birth of Isaac again and again in your life. Miracles come not by blindly struggling. There are laws in the spiritual realm, and you have endless resources in your heart. God is dwelling within you; but God is not going to do anything for you without coming through your own life. God is going to cooperate with you to accomplish great things. God is the same, for Jehovah never changes; but before a person changes, God cannot manifest himself to them. God used Moses and Joshua, and other men of giant faith; but when they passed away and people began to backslide, God stopped manifesting His power.

God wants to manifest Himself through you today, just as He manifested Himself through Christ , years ago. He is just as powerful as He was before, and He is depending upon you. I claim that I could build a church which has more than 0, members very easily in the States, as well as in Germany or in Tokyo, for the vision for a church is not built in the external world, but inside a man or woman. What becomes pregnant in your heart and mind is going to come out in your circumstances.

Watch your heart and your mind more than anything else. Claim and speak the word of assurance, for your word actually goes out and creates. God spoke and the whole world came into being. Your word is the material which the Holy Spirit uses to create.

So give the word, for this is very important. The church today has lost the art of giving commands. We Christians are becoming perennial beggars, for constantly we are begging.

The Egyptians are coming. Give the command and the Red Sea shall be divided. You must pray through in your prayer closet, but when you come out to the battlefield, you are coming to give the word of creation. When you read the life of Jesus Christ you see that He always gave the command.

He prayed all night, but when He came out to the front lines He commanded that the people be healed. He commanded the sea to be calm.

He commanded the devil to leave. And His disciples did exactly the same thing. Rise up in the name of Jesus Christ! The Bible says to heal the sick. Rise and stand up! A few months ago I was holding a meeting in a Western country. One evening in the meeting we had about 1, people packed into this one place, and right in front of me was one lady in a wheelchair. She was so badly twisted that I felt depressed. I would look one way, and then suddenly turn around and look the other way; for the sight of her poured cold water on my heart.

She is so twisted, I wonder if Jesus Christ Himself could lift her up. First a blind lady was healed. She was so frightened when I called out her healing she shrieked and fainted, just after her eyes had suddenly opened. Then people began to be healed all over the auditorium. When I turned around all the people had started shouting and clapping their hands, for that woman had stepped out of her wheelchair and started walking around the platform. I was foolish, for if I had lifted her up in the beginning I could have brought heaven down to that service; but I was scared.

Many people come and ask me whether I have the gift of faith, or the gift of healing. I believe that is because it is the Holy Spirit who has the gifts, all nine of them.

He dwells within us, and within me. What kind of gift do I have? I will tell you the one gift I have—the gift of boldness. With this gift of boldness we just launch out by faith; then the Holy Spirit is going to follow after us. The Bible does not say that a sign shall go ahead of you; the Bible says that a sign shall follow you.

Abide by the law of incubation, and throughout your life watch as sign after sign follows your path of faith.

You have the resources within you, and now you know the elements needed in incubation to make your faith usable. Get a clear-cut goal and objective. Have a desire that burns to the boiling point, then pray until you have the substance, the assurance. Then begin to speak the word about which you have been given assurance. The most important lessons that I have learned about the nature of the realm of faith began as a result of what was at first an unpleasant experience.

In America ministers do not have this kind of problem, but in the Orient I have real trouble in preaching about the miraculous power of God, for in Buddhism monks also have performed fantastic miracles. Just recently in Korea one woman was dying from a case of terminal cancer, and no doctor could cure her. She went to many churches, then to a Buddhist monk. He took her to a grotto where many were praying, and she was completely healed and cleansed, and the cancer disappeared.

In Korea many people involved in yoga are healing the sick by yoga meditation. When attending meetings of the Japanese Sokagakkai, many are healed—some of stomach ulcers, the deaf and dumb hearing and speaking, and the blind seeing. So naturally we Christians, especially Pentecostal Christians, have real difficulty in explaining these occurrences.
