STOP TO THINK ABOUT IT….OUR CHOICE

Richard Roberts - Second of two parts  Will you ignore Jesus or greet Him with open arms? Will you take Him for granted or give Him the place of honor? Will you reject His word to you or accept in faith, with full obedience? Will you crucify Him in your heart or invite Him to rule and reign in your life? In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,  having made known to us the mystery of His will, according

STOP TO THINK ABOUT IT…OUR HEALING

Richard Roberts - First of two parts The only people who were not healed by Jesus when He walked this earth were those who refused to come to Him in faith. Thousands of sick people lived within 100 miles of Jesus when He walked this earth and was at the height of His healing ministry. Yet nearly all of them died or remained sick, even though Jesus the Great Physician, the miracle working Son of God, was just a few days’ journey away. Why weren’t they healed? They refused to come to Jesus. They refused to cast all their care

Truth Is Your Fortress

From the archives of Oral Roberts A little girl continually told lies, and scolding her had not cured her of the habit. Finally, in desperation, her mother told her, “People who tell lies won’t go to heaven.” The little girl thought for a moment, then looked at her mother and said, “It must be awfully lonesome in heaven with nobody there but God and George Washington.” The child had no doubt heard the story that George Washington never told a lie. But we know that’s all it is — a story. However, one thing we can be sure of is

Our Lineman

Richard Roberts During football season, I enjoy watching an occasional football game on television. I especially remember a Super Bowl game I was watching when the San Francisco 49ers pretty well man-handled their opponents. People everywhere were talking about Joe Montana, the quarterback for the 49ers, saying what a powerful player he was. I noticed something about Joe Montana as I watched that Super Bowl game. First of all, I noticed he knew what to do with the football. But I also noticed that he was a pretty small guy, at least in comparison to the other players on the

Expect a Miracle!

From the archives of Oral Roberts Miracles were always happening in the Bible because people were expecting them to happen. They were looking for them to happen. They were believing God for them to happen. People expected God to stretch out His mighty hand and display His supernatural power in their lives. They opened their hearts to His miracle-working power, and miracles happened! Acts 3:1–10 tells the story of the healing of the lame man at the Beautiful Gate. He was carried to the gate of the temple each day, where he begged for a living. One day, as the

Attach Your Faith to a Seed

Lindsay Roberts God has given you what you need to live “by faith.” “…God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3). The challenge facing us is this: How do we activate our faith? How do we put our faith into motion? How do we use our faith? This is where the principle of “seed” comes in. A seed is anything that you give as if you were giving it directly to God. It may be a simple pat on the shoulder with which you give a person, but you are really giving it as if you were smiling at

Is it Possible to Please God?

Richard Roberts A life without faith is a life without possibilities. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6,  But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  When you are without faith, it’s impossible for you to receive God’s highest and best in your life. This doesn’t mean He doesn’t love you; He just is not pleased with you. Without faith, it’s impossible to have peace in everyday problems that must be handled by your faith. God has a way for you to get out of the realm

‘Who Is My Neighbor?’

From the archives of Oral Roberts The Pharisees had a problem with the Old Testament commandment to love their neighbor. They said, “God couldn’t be talking about Samaritans, little children, lepers, tax collectors, or adulterers.” They defined the term “neighbor” as anyone who wasn’t a Pharisee. An understanding of their thinking helps us to fully appreciate the wisdom of Jesus’ answer to the lawyer who asked him, “Who is my neighbor?” (See Luke 10:29-37.) Jesus answered the question with a story. He said there was a man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. On the journey, thieves jumped him,

Put on Your Armor and Go to Battle

Lindsay Roberts - Second of two parts We have allowed the devil to push us a little bit, and then we’ve allowed him to push us a little more. We think we’re supposed to be humble, take it, just walk away, and shut our mouth. In some situations, God may tell you to do that. But then it gets to the point where the devil is stealing your anointing, stealing your church, stealing your children, and stealing this generation. When I saw my little girl that particular day, I saw her with spiritual eyes. She looked like a giant. She

“You Wanna Bet?”

Lindsay Roberts - First of two parts I received the greatest revelation from God when He talked to me about being a mighty warrior. He showed me that you cannot be “more than a conqueror” without a battle. Yet many times when we are put in the battle, we think, Oh God, what am I going to do? But sometimes God puts us right in the middle of the battle to grow us up, or to strengthen and toughen us. Our five-year-old daughter, Chloe, asked if she could become a member of a T-ball team for five-year-olds. I agreed reluctantly
