Bible Study Questions for December 5th, 2020

Saturday at 10:00am EDT

And I really believe that all the way through the difficulties that we are really enduring is due to our lack of ability to perceive and handle the claims of animal magnetism. I believe that un-handled animal magnetism is at the bottom of all our difficulties.

It is going to surprise you greatly to see that metaphysics takes the physical out of matter and puts it into Mind, and we are going to see how it does it, right now. The thing that awakened me to this, I think, more than I can say, is that wonderful statement of Paul’s, where he said, “Present your bodies a living sacrifice, wholly acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service, and be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” “Living sacrifice,” I couldn’t get that, for mostly a sacrifice is a dead sacrifice, you know. But, “present your bodies” “a living sacrifice, wholly acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Rom. 12:1. To me, that means that, today, if we will understand our body rightly, every heartbeat glorifies God, every breath we take glorifies God, every action of the body glorifies God.
