“Supply”

Richard Roberts - Second of three parts Everybody I know needs to have their physical and material needs met. They need food, shelter, clothing, and in this day and age, a car to drive. And because the method we have for getting those things today involves money, everybody needs money. God is not against our having money. He knows that we need it to buy things we’ve got to have for life. He knows we’ve got to have it to preach the Gospel on this earth. Money in and of itself is not bad. The truth about money is the

“Relationship”

Richard Roberts - First of three parts The thief (which is the devil) cometh not, but for to steal, and kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. —John 10:10 Everybody on earth wants to have a relationship with someone who loves them. To be loved is a basic need that each human being is born with, and that never leaves us as long as we are alive. Jesus said that the devil comes to do three things in our relationships. First, he comes to steal them… to

Faint Not

From the archives of Oral Roberts In Luke 18 we read a parable of Jesus in which He told about a widow who went before a judge in her city with a request. Now, the Bible says about this judge that he “feared not God, neither regarded man” (Luke 18:2). Nevertheless, this widow came to Him and said, “Avenge me of mine adversary.” At first, the judge paid no attention to her. But she kept coming again and again, saying, “Avenge me of my adversary.” Finally the judge said, “Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet because this

God’s Property

Richard Roberts Sickness and disease are the work of the devil. The Bible makes this clear in John 10:10 NKJV when Jesus said, “The thief [devil] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Jesus came to earth so that He might destroy the devil’s evil works that try to attach themselves to our lives. First John 3:8 NKJV says, The devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy

The Cure Giver

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts A few months ago, Oral and I received a letter from one of our seed-faith partners. His name is Juan and this is what he wrote us: Last August. I became so stricken with arthritis that I couldn’t get out of bed. My neck, back, knees, shoulders and elbows were bad. I went to the doctor who confirmed that I had rheumatoid arthritis. He told me there was no cure for it, and that I would have to learn to live with it. (Oh, how I wish the doctors would get to the point

A Miracle Healing

From the archives of Oral Roberts – Second of two parts A partner recently shared this wonderful praise report with us. We believe it will be a blessing into your life, too, as you expect your miracle. Doris, from Rhode Island, wrote: “Oral, I praise God for what He has done for my grandson, Joshua. I believe prayer and planting a seed-faith gift with your ministry helped bring it about. When Joshua’s mother was three months pregnant with him, something happened and his brain stopped growing. As a result, he was born brain-damaged and blind. We suffered such heartache! Our

Absolutely Nothing

From the archives of Oral Roberts – First of two parts   Nothing is too hard for God to do… too little for His notice, too big for Him to handle, too tough for Him to solve, or too difficult for Him to figure out.   Nothing is too complicated for Him to resolve… too terrible for Him to touch, too distant for Him to reach, too complex for Him to understand, or too powerful for Him to overcome.   Because… Nothing is beyond God’s love for you.

Only the Good

Richard Roberts I once had a conversation with a young woman who is one of the great gospel singers in the entire world. I asked her to be a guest on my television program and she said, “I’m afraid to come because the Holy Spirit might speak something to me and it would terrify me and probably ruin my ministry.” I said, “No, if the Holy Spirit said something to you, it would make your ministry, not break it.” This woman loved the Lord Jesus, but she didn’t want anything to do with the Holy Spirit. How sad, I thought.

Heart’s Desire

Lindsay Roberts Have you ever had a desire for something good, and nothing seemed to be happening? I’ve been there. All of my life, my desire was to have children. As a teenager, I was told that there was only a very slim chance that I would ever become pregnant, but I still desired children. I called out their names to God. I walked faith, talked faith, looked like faith… and all I got was a tumor, disease, and miscarriages. One day the doctor asked me, “Why are you torturing yourself like this?” I said, “For one simple reason. I

Be Prepared

From the archives of Oral Roberts People stand in line for hours to see events at the famous Drottningholm Palace Theatre in Stockholm, Sweden. Night after night every seat in the house is filled…except two in the front row. Those chairs are velvet thrones reserved for the king and queen of Sweden. No one ever knows in advance when they may drop in, but the theatre must be prepared at all times, just in case. Likewise, when our Lord returns to earth, it may be when we least expect it. In Matthew 25:1–13 Jesus told a parable to illustrate this
