Richard Roberts said, I am very familiar with this because I’m asked to do this all the time, especially as much as I am on television. I put my hand up, and I send the word to people for healing. And on television when I do that, my hand will get hot. It’s getting hot right now, which lets me know that God is about to use me.
And I tell people to stretch forth their hand toward my hand. Now someone will say, “Well, that’s crazy!” No, you will not find me doing something unless I can back it up by the Bible.
You say, “Well, where’s that in the Bible?” It’s in the book of Acts. The Bible says that God brought special miracles through the hands of Paul.” Well, I’m not Paul, but Paul’s not me. Paul’s not here, but I am here. So, therefore, I have a Bible right to stretch my hand out toward you and have you stretch your hand out toward me so that we can have a faith touch.
Now let’s have a demonstration at Oral Roberts University. Anyone who needs healing, stretch your hand out toward me. Now this is not magic. This is the Word of God. There’s nothing special about my hand, but it becomes an instrument when I point it at you.
In the name of Jesus, I send the word to you for your healing. I speak to back pain, come out. And it’s coming out in the name of the Lord. I speak to pain in your legs, and I send the word to your legs, come out in the name of the Lord.
I speak to the problem with your heart, and I send the word to your heart to beat normally and the arteries to open up. Every heart problem, come out. – Lindsay Roberts
I speak to eyes, and I send the word to your eyes. Glory to God, there’s a cataract being healed right now. God’s getting ahead of me. That’s the fourth method. I’ll get to number four. I send the word to your eyes, cataract, dissolve. Blindness, come out.
Richard Roberts – Loss of hearing, I send the word to you. In Jesus’ name, be healed. Now that’s another demonstration.
Richard Roberts said, listen to me with your ears tonight. Hear with the ears of faith. Because if you’ll begin to do what I’m saying, it will begin to bring change to your life.
Let me tell you the story of the apostle Paul. Paul was in jail. And he wrote a letter, a letter to a church at Philippi which he had established. He said to them, “You’ve done well that you’ve communicated with my need. Not that I desire a gift, but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.”
And I’d like to stop there for a moment. Paul said, “Not that I desire a gift.” Listen to me, my friends, every true minister of the gospel feels this way. You say, “Well, I’ve heard of some abuse.”
Yes, it’s true, there is some abuse. But you’ll find there is abuse in some quarters in every area of life. There is abuse in the political world. There’s abuse in the financial world. There’s abuse in the medical world. There’s abuse in the ministry world.
But don’t let the truth escape you. Lindsay Roberts said that a real minister of the gospel does not want to receive anything for himself. Instead, he wants to give. And the reason he wants to give is because he knows that God will bless him.
Are you listening to me tonight? Are you hearing me? Is it getting inside you? I paid my own way to El Salvador. I paid the way for my team. I raised the money for the medicines.
Richard Roberts – We raised the money for the food. I came with my Bible. I’ll go home with my Bible. I did not come to receive. I came to give. If you tried to pay me for coming, I would not take the money. Why? Because God will take care of me.
And Jesus marveled. As what Richard Roberts said, maybe he knew the scripture in Psalms which says, “He sent his word and healed them of their destruction. He sent his word and healed them from their destruction.” The others didn’t seem to know that scripture. This man understood that Jesus had the power to send His Word.
Richard Roberts shares; Many years ago God spoke to me and said, “In your ministry you’re going to send My Word.” He said, “I see you standing on platforms, in nations all over the world. And I see you putting up your hand and sending My Word. And when you send My Word, people will begin to get healed. Sickness and disease will begin to leave.”
And the scripture says, “He sent his word and healed them of their destruction.” Tonight I’m going to send the word, and that word is going to flow right through my hands and it is going to come inside you. And there are going to be many miracles tonight. Hallelujah!
Jesus turned to the army captain and sent His Word. He said, “Go home. And as you have believed, it shall be done of your military aide.” Lindsay Roberts said. And on the way home, the man found his aide had been healed.
I have news for you here at Oral Roberts University. God is not a bad God. God is a good God. He loves you. He cares about you. He wants your salvation. He wants your healing. The price has already been paid, but you’ll have to activate your faith. Without God you cannot, but without you He will not. There’s something for you to do
Richard Roberts – Tonight I’m going to stretch forth my hands, and I am going to begin to pray. And you watch what will happen. Suddenly there will be a wave of healing. It will begin to spread across this side here. And people will feel a surge of the power of God. And eyes will begin to be healed. And ears will begin to be healed. And cripples will begin to walk. And cancers will begin to fall off. And hearts will begin to be healed. And diabetes will begin to go. Pain will go.
Richard Roberts shares this story. One night in Cameroon there were 11 crippled people who walked. We saw deafness healed. We saw arthritis healed. We saw many tremendous miracles. And the good news is, what He did there, He’ll do here.
What are you asking of God? Have you asked Him to become your Lord? I’m not just talking about Him being your Savior. Lindsay Roberts also teaches us that many have called Him Savior. Much of the world says they’re Christian, in fact that they recognize that He is a Savior. Some even call Him their Savior. But is He your Lord?
It’s one thing to have your food on the table. It’s another thing to have the food in your belly. It’s one thing for Him to be the Lord. It’s another thing for Him to be your Lord.
Richard Roberts asks,What are you asking Him this morning? He’s the source of every living thing. Every good and perfect thing cometh from Him. Satan is not the Creator. Satan is an imitator. Satan has never had a creative thought in his life. Only God creates. Only God is your source.
Someone’s getting healed right now in your stomach even as I preach at ORU. We’ll find out who that is a little later on. But God is your source. He is your source for salvation. He is your source for healing. He is your source for a victorious life. He is your source of finances.
Richard Roberts – This morning we gave our offerings unto the Lord, and the Lord spoke to me and told me what I was to give. Don’t tell me God doesn’t speak to people about money because He spoke to me this morning and told me exactly what to give.
According to Richard Roberts, there’s a password, “In Jesus’ name.” That’s the password. When you say, “In Jesus’ name,” satan begins to pack his bags and leave town. Sickness and disease begin to go. Miracles begin to happen. It’s not because of us. It’s because God has put faith in each one of us. He puts faith in your heart. It lives right here in your heart. Faith is in you. But you must let it go.
He did not put it in you just to live there just so you can say, “Look at me. I have faith.” No, no, no, it must be used. So when I pray today, and I give the password, when I say, “In Jesus’ name,” here’s what you do: “Faith, get up there to God. I release my faith.”
Lindsay Roberts tells us that’s how miracles happen. I’ve seen blind eyes opened. I remember when I was preaching in Yaounde in Cameroon. And we’d had lunch that day, and the mother of the family was blind, totally blind, and had been blind in both eyes for years.
And one of the pastors took me back to see her. And I said to her, “Come to the crusade tonight, and I’m going to believe for God to heal your eyes.” – Oral Roberts University.
And that night someone brought this woman up for prayer. And I prayed for her, and God healed her eyes. I’ll never forget this pastor, the same one who introduced me to her when she was blind.
Richard Roberts - He brought her on the platform, and he was jumping, and he was saying, “She can see, she can see, she can see.” He just kept leaping. “She was blind, she was blind, she was blind, she was blind.” And the whole crowd began to jump because of this woman’s healing.
Richard Roberts: And Lindsay Roberts, because of the partners of this ministry who have stood with us, this ministry is moving forward on every front, and I am so delighted that my good friend, who you just saw in that spot, Pastor Hank Kunneman of Lord of Host Church, stayed over to be with you tonight. God bless you.
HK: Thank you for having me again.
Richard Roberts: Thank you so much for coming and sharing with us. Honey, something wonderful has happened. God has spoken to me again, and told me this ministry is moving forward on all fronts. Well that means to me, God not only is moving this ministry forward, but He wants to move your life forward. He wants you healed in every area of your life. He wants you prospering. Lindsay, He wants our partners to be fulfilled in every area of their life.
Lindsay Roberts: Yep. You know, I was reading a thing about Richard’s daddy the other day; when we were all sitting around praying over prayer requests, and he actually set them on fire. We had a candle lighting service, and he accidently set them on fire.
Richard Roberts: It was an accident. It was an accident.
Lindsay Roberts: The thing was, he was holding them so tight, and I saw… I can’t even tell you. I don’t know if I’d even had my kids yet, so it was probably, I don’t know, a good twenty-five years ago.
Richard Roberts: Well, it was in the eighties.
Lindsay Roberts: Early eighties; and his partners at Oral Roberts University had written in, and when I saw him pick up the names of those partners, the needs of those partners, prayer sheets of those partners, and he held them so tight that when he leaned up into the candle and caught them on fire, he didn’t even notice. He didn’t notice, because he was so committed to those partners who had been so committed to him.
Richard Roberts: Right.
Lindsay Roberts: I’ll tell you, there is that thing going on. It’s hard to explain, but that’s why it’s called partnership. It’s joint partaking. When the partners come together in this ministry, when, you know, it’s like when you receive the prophet, you receive the prophet’s reward. As you sow into the ministry, there is a reward that is absolute on the other end. That’s what the Bible says.
Richard Roberts: the word of knowledge is… yes, I’ll so that Lord. Can I do this first? Ok. You see, when God speaks, He and I’ll just have a conversation sometimes. I just have to obey. Alright. Ok. Is it the left knee or the right? Alright, there’s another left knee getting healed right now, in Jesus’ name. And there’s a problem with a right ankle. Whoever you are, problem with your right ankle, stand up. Lindsay Roberts said stand up and start, in the name of Jesus. Sometimes when the Lord does that to me, I don’t remember what I was talking about. Are your ankles bothering you? Is it the ankle? All three of you, all four of you, just step out here a minute. Step out here. Is it your ankle? I was talking about… I’ll get back to it, whatever it was. Ya’ll just, you with the ankle. Roy, Dave… [speaking in tongues] It’s your back to isn’t it? Yea, your whole body. You just need a healing. You just need your healing all over. – Oral Roberts University.
Richard Roberts: Loose him in the name of Jesus! Now, just begin straightening up. There’s an anointing here for healing right now. We don’t have to wait for it to come. That, I feel that power. It’s running down my arm. I don’t know how to explain it to people. I think you know what I’m talking about. That’s not me, that’s God. He told me the other night, “I’m going to do some notable miracles here.” He said, “When you get to Canada, I’m going to do some notable miracles.” That’s why I couldn’t wait to get here. And when they said, “We’re cancelling your flight,” I said, “No, you’re not! You cancel somebody else’s flight. And by the way, you’re not gonna lose my bag either.” That reminds me of the guy who went to the airline counter, and said, “I want to send this bag to New York, and I want to send this bag to Toronto.” The airline man said, “We don’t do that.” He said, “Well, you did it last week.” Listen, if you can fly all night in the dark, and find Edmonton, you can find my bag. – ORU
Richard Roberts – Just stand up brother. Yeah, yeah, I know there’s weakness there, but you got a start. You were bent over when you came down here. Can you tell the difference? There’s a difference, there’s a difference. Somebody give a shout to the Lord. Yes I know. Yeah, now that the healing is come, you’re gonna have to, gonna have to rebuild the muscles. Ok? But you’ve got the start of a healing. Hallelujah, in the name of Jesus.
CHRISTIANA: Hallelujah! Thank you, Niger. I have been so blessed to be able to come here at Oral Roberts University. Your country is beautiful, you’re beautiful, and you have welcomed us all with open arms and open hearts.
You have reminded me not only what it is to be a nurse, to serve patients, but what it is to be a Christian and to love one another and care for each other. And I see the love amongst you all with your friendly faces and how much you welcomed us into your country.
And it has been my honor to come and serve you. So thank you for this opportunity, and thank you, President Richard Roberts. (Applause)
RR: Hallelujah! Now come and stand close to me. Come and stand close to me. I want to bring you a message tonight. I’m asking everyone to be quiet. Everyone stop talking. And let us give honor to the Word of God.
The Bible says that the word God speaks is alive and full of power, and that word must be heard. When you hear it with your ears, it gets down into your heart. And out of the abundance of your heart, that word begins to come up out of your mouth. And it becomes a word of faith.
You hear it, it gets in your heart, and you say it. And Lindsay Roberts said that when you say it, you hear it again, and it gets into your heart, which causes you to say it. And it goes around and around and around, in your ear, in your heart, and out of your mouth. And it becomes a word of faith. And that helps you to believe the things of God.
Richard Roberts shares what the Bible says, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But how shall they hear without a preacher, and how can he or she preach except they be sent of God? For how beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel.”
Yesterday and today, I preached and taught a large number of pastors. And I told them that they had beautiful feet because they are preachers and teachers of God’s Word. They represent the church. And Lindsay Roberts tells what the Bible says, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.”
This morning at ORU, we had our closing service together, and I laid hands on each one and anointed each one with oil. The Bible describes the use of anointing oil in praying for people. And so I anointed them with oil as I laid my hands on them.
MAN: Dr. Richard Roberts, for ten years this man has had to walk with this cane. Now he can walk without the cane.
RR: For ten years.
MAN: Ten years had to walk with a cane, but tonight he can walk without the cane.
RR: Ten years. Hallelujah! Glory to God! Yes, Dr. Cordray.
DR. C: Dr. Richard Roberts, this lady has not been able to walk for four years. Her daughter is here to confirm.
RR: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! If you’re being healed tonight, if the pain is gone, if you’re seeing better, if your hearing is healed, if you’re walking, if the pain is gone, come to the platform. Give a word of testimony. Let the people know that God is a healing God. – Oral Roberts University.
DAVID: Dr. Roberts, for two years this lady could not hear. Tonight she can hear.
RR: Can she hear? (Testing lady’s hearing) (Response) Jesus heals deaf ears. Hallelujah!
MAN: Richard, this lady had been poisoned with witchcraft.
MAN: 2001 she was poisoned with witchcraft, couldn’t walk, run.
RR: She was poisoned from witchcraft. What did you feel when we prayed tonight?
LADY: I’m from Nigeria, I’m from Nigeria.
RR: What happened to you? Tell me.
LADY: God is good.
RR: I know that. What did He do for you tonight?
LADY: For five years . . . from Nigeria . . . I want healing and I been listening to you . . .
RR: What happened to you tonight?
LADY: Tonight the power of God came upon me. I’ve been like this for five years. For five years I can’t move. I can’t do anything, but God has given me strength. (Response)
RR: Yes, David.
DAVID: Dr. Richard Roberts, for four years this lady has been having pain in both her knees. She couldn’t walk the stairs. Tonight she can walk the stairs without any pain.
Richard Roberts stated that by Saturday this stadium will be overflowing, and there will be thousands and thousands of salvations. And there will be thousands of miracles. And people will be testifying and giving a word for the Lord.
Now you who’ve come for prayer, I want you to lift your hands. And I want the pastors and the ministers of the gospel to begin to come down and surround you. For I want to put you in their hands after this service is over tonight, so if all the supporting pastors, all the ministers of the gospel will make their way down.
Now Lindsay Roberts wants you to lift your hands unto the Lord and pray this prayer out loud after me: O God, be merciful to me a sinner. Come into my heart and save me. Heal me, deliver me, and set me free. I repent. I turn from my way to Your way.
I renounce the devil and all of his works. And I receive the Lord Jesus, from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. I declare that I am a Christian. I am born again. And from this night I shall not be the same again, by the authority of Jesus’ name.
Now begin to rejoice. Give Him praise. Give Him honor. Give Him glory in this place. Lift your hands unto Him. Say, “Thank You, Lord, for saving me, for healing me tonight. And, Lord, let there be many more miracles tonight, tomorrow night, Friday night, Saturday night. God bless the pastor’s conference at Oral Roberts University. God bless the medical and dental team. God bless this crusade, and let Ibadan know that God is a good God and the devil is a bad devil, in Jesus’ name.” Put your hands together and give Him praise. (Applause)
