Insider Information

Richard Roberts When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. —John 16:13-14 There’s a lot of talk today about insider information and confidentiality of sources. “Information businesses” are among the fastest growing ones in our nation. Jesus told his disciples about the true “insider information.” He said that when the Holy Spirit comes—which He did on the day of

“Thy Word Is a Lamp unto My Feet”

From the archives of Oral Roberts When you read the Bible, it’s as if you were in God’s presence, and He is speaking to you through His Word. It’s good to read it thoughtfully and ask the Holy Spirit to interpret any difficult passages for you. Sometimes the Holy Spirit will call a special verse to your attention and reveal its meaning to you. The Bible is a handbook for living. It is a roadmap to heaven. Without knowledge of the Word of God in our hearts, we can make mistakes that can hurt our Christian experience. A famous Bible

Keep Focused on the Word of God

Richard Roberts I’d like to share several things with you about keeping on track with God. The Bible says in Proverbs 29:18 that where there is no vision, the people perish. “Keeping your vision” is another way to say keeping on track, and there are some basic ways to do that. In the game of golf, as in life, there are basics. One basic in golf is that no matter how a golfer takes his club back before a swing — inside, straight, or outside — when he reaches the point of impact, every swing is the same. In other

Keep Your Eyes on Jesus

From the archives of Oral Roberts There is so much fear and uneasiness in our world today! People are afraid of living and dying, of losing their money and not having enough to make ends meet. Others are afraid of losing their health. It seems that nearly everyone is afraid of something. The Lord does not want us to be afraid or let fear dominate our lives. He came to deliver us out of the hands of the enemy (that we) might serve him without fear (Luke 1:74). But in order for Him to do that, we must keep our

Don’t Doubt

Richard Roberts God’s blessings do not come to those who doubt. This truth from the Bible is illustrated in many places, but perhaps no more clearly than in 2 Kings chapter 6 and 7. The city of Samaria was under great siege by the Syrian army. The people were out of food. Even a little morsel of food cost hundreds of dollars (in today’s money) and there was such a devastation that the people had resorted literally to eating their own children. The king was heartsick and angry at this, but could do nothing about it except turn his rage

The Wisdom of God

From the archives of Oral Roberts Who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? -1Corinthians 2:16 Dining out one day, the late William Jennings Bryan, a U.S. Congressman and three-time presidential nominee in the late 1800s, so enjoyed a slice of watermelon that he asked the waiter for some more of the seeds. He weighed them and calculated that it would take about 5,000 seeds to equal a pound. Estimating the melon at about 40 pounds, he figured that one tiny watermelon seed had grown to 200,000 times its own size. On the outside it had

God Can Multiply Your Seed

Richard Roberts Do you ever feel as if nothing you do matters? That your part is so small it doesn’t make a difference? That what you have to give to God is too little to mean anything? Let me share a powerful story from the Bible with you! In 2 Kings chapter 7 we read about a simple act of faith on the part of four sick and dying men, and how God turned their act into a mighty miracle. The city of Samaria was under siege by the Syrian army and at the city gates sat four lepers, who

For Your Good

From the archives of Oral Roberts When something bad happens to you, it’s just human nature to feel that your whole life is ruined and nothing will ever go right again. That’s why it’s important to think of life not in terms of one isolated experience, but as a whole. This idea is illustrated by comparing life to a ship. Although a ship is made to sail, not all of its parts will float by themselves. If you put the engine on the water, for instance, it immediately sinks, and so do the propeller, the compass, and many other parts.

Giving, Not Buying

Richard Roberts You can’t buy your way to God. You can’t buy healing. You can’t fight your way out of trouble. You can’t buy a ticket to Heaven. You can’t buy God’s miracle working power.  Friend, God is not for sale. But you can have a giving-and-receiving relationship with God. God wants to give to YOU. In fact, He’s already given so many things to you that you’d have to spend the rest of your life trying to count them all. God also wants YOU to give to HIM. In fact, He gave to you first, so you could give

God Will Meet Every Need

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts The first book my husband, Oral, ever wrote was Salvation by the Blood. He sent me a copy before we even started to date. After I read the book, I felt like I knew him a little better. The next book he wrote when he was starting the healing ministry, and it was called If You Need Healing, Do These Things. If you don’t know III John 2, you need to memorize it and say it over and over. It is God’s highest wish for us, His people. Beloved, I wish above all things
