It Has All Been Laid Out For Us

Lindsay Roberts One morning, my daughter had laid out my clothes for me to put on. I started to laugh, and as I looked at the clothes, she said, “I laid it all out for you.” At that instant, in my mind, I saw a picture of Jesus standing there, and He said, “So did I.” Why are we doing without our finances, without our help, without prosperity in our families, our marriages, and in every other area of our lives? God has already laid it all out for us. There is nothing on the face of the earth He

The Devil is Loose

From the archives of Oral Roberts – Second of two parts The devil is loose! He once had his abode in heaven, but he was cast out with one-third of the angels that followed him. Those angels became demon spirits. And Lucifer, the archangel who was cast out, became the devil, our adversary, our tempter, deceiver, and accuser of the brethren—the one who comes to steal, kill, and to destroy (John 10:10). Those demons are under Lucifer, and we are in a constant wrestling match. We are flesh and blood, but we’re fighting against principalities, against powers, and against the

Satan Is the Accuser of the Brethren

From the archives of Oral Roberts – First of two parts The Bible says the devil is shrewd and subtle. First Peter 5:8 says he is our adversary. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. The apostle Peter warns us against the devil, who goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. So we know he is a deceiver. We know he is a tempter because he tempted our Lord Jesus Christ three different times in a major way. And the Lord repulsed him

Causing Faith to Come

Richard Roberts So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. — Romans 10:17 Oklahoma is “oil country.” Men drill deep into the ground for oil, causing the oil to come rushing up from the earth. In days past, before the sophisticated machinery the drillers have today, one could often hear the oil coming up from the earth with a roar, often sweeping up and out of the ground in a mighty “gusher.” The Word of God is like a drill bit, driving deep down into your heart and causing faith to come rushing up. Faith

I Was There

From the archives of Oral Roberts I wasn’t there when Jesus miraculously walked on the water and stilled the storm. I wasn’t there when He took the loaves and fishes and multiplied them to feed the multitude. I wasn’t there when He forgave the harlot, healed the leper, and restored sight to the blind man. I wasn’t there with the disciples on the Day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was poured out. But I was there in Oklahoma the night Jesus miraculously touched my soul and body and gave me a new life. I was there when God poured

A Turn-Around Point

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts Have you ever found yourself driving down the road, realize you were going the wrong direction, and said to yourself, “I’m going the wrong way. I need to find a place to turn around?” No doubt you started looking immediately for a wide place in the road, a driveway, or a parking lot you could turn into. That’s happened to all of us, hasn’t it? A “point of contact” with the Lord is like a turn-around place in your life. It’s something that you do that causes your life to turn from going one

Make a Faith Declaration-2

Richard Roberts – Second of two parts We need to learn how to forgive. There are medical doctors who say that there are some sicknesses and diseases that can be traced to unforgiveness. Why? Because unforgiveness leads to bitterness, and bitterness causes you to turn inward on yourself. It can make you sick. So, learn how to forgive. Oh, it’s hard, especially when someone did you wrong and you are the innocent party. I was once invited to be on a national television program and when I arrived, much to my amazement, there was a man there who I was

Make a Faith Declaration

Richard Roberts - First of two parts Jesus said in Mark 11:22–23: “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. The problem with most Christians is they speak to their mountain [their problem], but then they begin to doubt. They come into a service, get all charged up with the move of the Holy Spirit, and then they walk out and begin to

God is Present in Times of Trouble

From the archives of Oral Roberts God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. —Psalm 46:1 It’s when you are in trouble that God’s face shines the brightest. That’s when His face emerges above the storm clouds. It’s when you are in trouble that God appears to you the strongest. That’s when you see Him standing there in the shadows. It’s when you are in trouble that you feel the strong hand of God… taking possession of your mortal frame… lifting you… putting your feet on the solid rock, Jesus Christ.

The Beginning from the End

Lindsay Roberts In Psalm 32:8, God says, I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Wouldn’t you like to have God Himself open your eyes, the God who sees and knows everything? He said He knows the beginning from the end. He sees everything. He sees when a sparrow falls. He even numbers the hairs on your head. This God who knows and sees absolutely, positively, everything—every breath you breathe, every step you take—says He will direct you with His eyes. Psalm 91:12 says that He doesn’t even
