‘Attaboy, God! Do It Again!’

From the archives of Oral Roberts Someone once asked a Texas rancher why he had such good sheep. He replied, “We take care of the lambs.” If we are to raise our children to be strong in the Lord, we must begin when they are just young lambs. It begins at the time God places them in our care. Proverbs 22:6, Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Our calling as parents is to establish a Christian home where Christ is held up, loved, and served.

“You Can Depend on Jesus…Always!”

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts There are very few of us who have trouble-free lives. One day I found the most wonderful verse in the Bible that deals with this. Hebrews 2:18 AMP, speaking of Jesus, says, Because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried), He is able (immediately) to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried.  That verse says Jesus understands what we’re going through, and He’s able to run to us immediately whenever we need Him! I like that! He doesn’t have

Put Your Hands to the Plow

Richard Roberts Daniel was a man of great prayer and also a tireless worker for the Lord. James 2:26 declares, “Faith without works is dead.” That means you can have a soul-searching encounter with God, but unless you combine some good old-fashioned hard work with your prayers, not much is going to happen! I believe it's time for us to square our shoulders, roll up our sleeves, put our hands to the plow, and work for the Lord like there's no tomorrow. There's a great and mighty work to be done, and we must not stop until the work is

‘I Embrace Healing!’

Lindsay Roberts Jesus went to the Cross and paid the price for whatever it is in your life that’s broken or needs to be healed. Whether you need healing in your mind, in your emotions, in your marriage, or in your physical body, He fixed it at Calvary. Whatever you’re asking Him to heal in your life is one of the things He went to the Cross for. Why would Christians ever be skeptical of healing? That would mean we accept sickness and disease! Why would we accept the very thing that Jesus Himself went to the Cross to defeat?

Miracles Are Real!

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts When Oral first began preaching the message of God’s goodness years ago, we thought everyone would be happy about it. But everyone wasn’t. In those days, it was hard to convince people that God is a good God who still wants to heal and perform miracles. At that time I didn’t remember ever seeing a miracle in church...except one. I was about eight years old and we went to a healing evangelist’s meeting. A woman who was near death with tuberculosis was brought in on a cot. She was healed that night and she

A Bread-and-Butter Lesson

From the archives of Oral Roberts In Luke 6:38 Jesus said, “With the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” What did He mean? I once heard the story of a baker and a farmer. The baker felt the farmer was shortchanging him and took the farmer to court. When the farmer testified, “I measure my pound of butter according to his pound of bread” the judge dismissed the case. The Living Bible sums up Luke 6:38 like this: “Whatever measure you use, large or small, will be used to measure what is given

Bless God and Be Blessed!

Lindsay Roberts  I recall a time when I had one of those days when, from the moment I got up in the morning, everything I did went wrong. You name it; pick anything. As soon as I crawled out of bed and opened my eyes, everything that could go wrong did...and much, much more! Needless to say, when I finally got home that evening I was exhausted and frustrated. And I had a tip-of-the-iceberg moment where I was going to blow it. Suddenly I began to chuckle because I realized that at that moment I had a golden opportunity to

The Old Shepherd

From the archives of Oral Roberts Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” I believe that everybody has a need in their life, and I am convinced that everybody at some time has some type of experience with God that is real to them. The way it happens is not as important as the fact that it does happen. In other words, when you open your mind to Christ and desire to have a new heart, He makes Himself known to you.

Don’t Put Up With the Rolling

Richard Roberts - Third of Three Parts Not only can you overcome the devil’s shaking, not only can you overcome his rattling, but you can also refuse to let Satan roll over you with his gigantic, demon-powered steamroller! Did you ever watch the Road Runner cartoons? I used to love the Wile E. Coyote character because no matter how far he fell or what fell on him, in the next scene he’s standing up! We ought to be like that. No matter what happens to us, in the next scene we’re standing up! Sometimes situations in this life try to

Don’t Get Rattled!

Richard Roberts - Second of Three Parts What do you do when something really rattles you, when your mind is confused and unsettled? When the devil just reaches out and grabs you and jerks you around until your teeth rattle? When that happens to me, the story of Elijah in I Kings 18 and 19 puts me back on my feet again. Elijah had issued a challenge to Queen Jezebel’s false prophets, asking for two bulls to be sacrificed — one prepared by the prophets of Baal and one by him. He told the prophets, “You call on your gods,
