The Lordship of Jesus

Richard Roberts Jesus wants to be the Lord of your life. The definition of the word Lord means owner, chief, governor, or highest authority. Lord indicates position, complete control, and best of all, master. It is a title that has an implied pledge of obedience. For Jesus to be truly your Lord, it takes an invitation by you, asking Him into your heart. And He must be Lord over every area of your being: spirit, mind, will, emotions, and body. This means He is Lord over your priorities. Matthew 6:33 NKJV says, Seek first the kingdom of God and His

Breaking the Power of Debt

Lindsay Roberts Are you operating in debt? Debt is anything you lack. If you're operating in sickness and disease, you lack health. That means you're operating in debt to your physical body. God can break the power of debt over your physical body and other areas as well. How can He do that? It starts with you. When you sow in obedience to Malachi 3:10, God can pour out the multiplication of a miracle to meet your need (Philippians 4:19).

Faith Is Where You Find It

Richard Roberts I've learned that faith is not always where you think it is. It was certainly that way in Jesus' day. Only twice in the Bible did He refer to a person's great faith, and neither was a religious person. One was a Roman centurion, a member of a hated race of people. He sought healing for his servant who was paralyzed. The centurion told Jesus to just say the word and his servant would be healed. Jesus told His disciples, “I've not found such great faith, not even in Israel” (Matthew 8:10 NKJV). The other person with great

Irresistible and Unstoppable!

From the archives of Oral Roberts Moses was on the backside of the desert when God appeared to him in a burning bush and challenged him with a seemingly impossible task. He told him to go down to Egypt and rescue His people. How did he do it? Hebrews 11:27 says that Moses saw with his spiritual eyes what God wanted him to do. He got a vision in his spirit of what could become a reality if he would obey God. And when he did that, he was ready to take on the burden of two million people. When

Love Has a Face

Lindsay Roberts The Bible gives us the definition of love: “Love Is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever” (1 Corinthian’s 13:4–8 NLT). First John 4:16 says that “God is love.” But sometimes it’s hard for us to put a face

Destroying the Devil’s Works

Richard Roberts The Bible tells us that Jesus came “that he might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). What is a work of the devil? It’s anything that is unlike God. Sickness, disease, fear, doubt, financial problems, emotional problems, family problems ― none of this is like God. These things simply aren’t a part of His nature. They are works of the devil … and Jesus came to destroy those works Let me assure you today, that although the devil is against you … God is for you. No matter how much the devil despises you …

Hold On for Your Loved Ones

From the archives of Oral Roberts Whenever you begin to believe for a miracle in the life of someone you love, you’re sure to meet opposition. But don’t give up! Hold on to the vision of your loved one being saved or healed because God answers unyielding faith. Someone held on for Saul of Tarsus, who was in Damascus shortly after his dramatic conversion. He was testifying of Jesus so boldly that the Bible says, The Jews plotted to kill him (Acts 9:23 NKJV). They watched the gates of the walled city day and night so that Saul couldn’t escape.

A Parent’s Prayer

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts One of my favorite Scriptures is Matthew 18:19 NKJV. It says, “If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” I believe a parent’s prayers can be powerful. Over the years I have heard from so many people who tell me that their children are not serving the Lord. As a parent, I understand the pain they must be feeling. But more important, God understands. He loves our children more than we can possibly know, and He longs to work

The Free Gift of God

From the archives of Oral Roberts The story is told about a man who went to Heaven one day. There, he was met at the pearly gates by Saint Peter, who said, “It takes 1,000 points for you to get to Heaven. Tell me what you have done in your life so we can see if you have enough points to get in.” The man said, “Well, I attended church every Sunday unless I was sick . . . and I sang in the Choir.” Saint Peter said, “That will be 50 points.”  “I gave generously every time the offering

Be Willing To Let Go

Lindsay Roberts One day, I received an unusual gift from a Partner of the ministry in the mail. It was a can of “Lindsay–brand” pitted olives. I thought it was a hilarious and thoughtful gift, but it also started me to thinking. To begin with, olives have a pit for a purpose. The pit is the heart of the olive―the part that connects it to the tree so it can grow. But once an olive is picked, the pit has served its purpose. And in order to make a can full of easy-to-eat olives, the pits have to be removed.
