God Wants To Heal You!

From the archives of Oral Roberts – First of two parts The healing power of God is something I have known from my childhood. I embraced it in my youth and have been privileged to witness it and all of its fullness. I have received so many letters asking: How may I know that God wants to heal me? How may I come to believe as you do; that God is good and that God will heal? First of all, I know that God wants to heal your body because of what Jesus declared to people 2,000 years ago. In

Knowing Jesus Changes Your Life

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts My road map of life started with my birth into the home of an alcoholic. My father drank, and he abused my mother. Finally, when I was four and my sister was two, my mother divorced him. A year or so later she remarried. God had a hand in that marriage and His road map for my life began to take shape. My mother was not a churchgoer, even though she belonged to a church. My stepfather didn’t go to church either, but he had a Methodist mother who really knew Jesus. So I

Obedience Is Better

Richard Roberts “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” — John 14:15 To me, one of the saddest passages in the entire Bible is found in 1 Samuel 15. The prophet Samuel had gone to King Saul and given him the word of the Lord that Saul was to go take the city of Amalek and destroy every living thing! But Saul went and destroyed “almost everything”, saying “I’ve done all that the Lord commanded me to do.”  Samuel replied, “Then why do I hear the sound of the oxen…?” Saul said, “I brought these back to sacrifice to God.”

A Place Called “There”

Lindsay Roberts – Second of two parts In Genesis 12:1-2 NKJV, the Lord told Abraham, “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.” God didn’t tell Abraham what his destination was until he and his family arrived there in the land of Canaan. In essence, He was sending Abraham to a place called “There.” He was saying, “Abraham, get up and go. You’ll know where you’re going when you get there.” Abraham was obedient to the Lord’s direction, and when he got there, God said, “Now you’re

God’s Provision is Already “There”

Lindsay Roberts – First of two parts In 1 Kings 17 NKJV, the Lord told Elijah, “Get away from here and turn east- word, and hide by the brook Cherith … You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there” (v.2–4). God said, “I have commanded the ravens to feed you.” Think about that for a minute. Elijah did as God commanded, and the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drink from the brook (v.6). Elijah was sustained on the sustenance

‘It Is Well…’

From the archives of Oral Roberts Horatio Spafford was a prominent lawyer in Chicago when he lost everything he had in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Two years later, he put his wife and three girls on a ship to Europe while he stayed behind to try to recover some of his fortune. About six days after their ship left port in New York, it collided with another vessel. As the ship sank, Mrs. Spafford gathered her children around her. An oarsman in one of the lifeboats later pulled Mrs. Spafford out of the water unconscious, but all of

Everybody’s Welcome

Richard Roberts Are you part of the true Christian Church today? I believe the true Christian Church reaches out to the broken, the beaten, the battered, the bruised, the lonely, the down-and-out, and the oppressed, with a helping hand, and with a living Word. I believe the true Christian Church lifts up Jesus, rather than tearing down others. I believe the true Christian Church is a place of miracles because Jesus is there, and He is a miracle-worker. I believe the true Christian Church does not concern itself with color, race, or economic status. It believes in the riches of

Giving Thanks in Tough Times

Lindsay Roberts The best time to give thanks to God may be in the tough times. Did you know that the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving was founded in the midst of war? In 1863, at the height of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln made a decree that America would celebrate “a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father.” Sadly, many people come into Thanksgiving with mixed emotions. In our family, some of the saddest things happened right at Thanksgiving time. This may be your first Thanksgiving without a certain loved one. Or the holiday may serve as

Born Again

From the archives of Oral Roberts I’m frequently asked what the expression “being saved” means. It expresses the act of asking God’s forgiveness for your sins and making full and complete surrender of your will and life to Jesus Christ! It is your entering into a personal relationship with Jesus. It means that you are born again and that your desires, ambitions, and plans are given over to God’s design for your life (See John 3:3.) Salvation is for everyone. It is not earned, and you cannot become “good enough” to be saved. You come to Jesus just as you

Make the Right Choices!

Lindsay Roberts Can you honestly say, “I am making good choices in my life?” Are you making good choices in what you think, in what you believe, in your giving and receiving, in your faith, and in your joy? Have you made the choice to serve God with your whole heart, your soul, your mind, your strength, and with every fiber of your being? Or do you need a spiritual tune-up? The Bible says in Joshua 24:15 NKJV, Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. I’ve made the decision that for me and my household, we will serve
