Richard Roberts says that I spoke to those who have deafness and cannot speak, and those who could not hear and speak were healed last night. And what God did last night, He will do tonight. (Response) He is God. There’s nothing too hard for Him.
Suddenly the power of God came into Bartimaeus’ eyes. And for the first time in his life, he could see just like that man last night who had been blind for five years, and he came up on the platform and testified that he could see. And he followed me all among the people. Wherever I went, he followed me. And he’s healed.
Oral Roberts stated that suddenly Bartimaeus could see. And everyone saw the miracle. And the word began to spread. And the word has been spreading all day here in Niamey. And the word has spread to the villages around the city and to the far borders of Niger. And what God did for Bartimaeus, He is ready to do for you tonight. (Response)
Lift your hands unto Him tonight. Father, in Jesus’ name, I give You praise. I give You honor and glory. The Bible says, “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” And the Lord Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So what He did in Bible days, He will do these days.
I am going to begin to pray. I want you to lift your two hands unto the Lord. And when you hear me speak to sickness and disease, when you hear that and when I touch on something that has affected you, I want you to get your faith working.
What do I mean? I mean I want you to believe with me. The Bible says it only takes two—“If two shall agree on earth.” There are thousands and thousands here tonight. But it only takes two, you and me. “If two shall agree on earth as concerning anything that they shall ask, it shall be done by my Father in heaven.”
So when I speak to sickness and disease tonight, you go into agreement. And then after I pray, I will begin to ask those who are receiving healing to come up on the platform and to testify and to let the people know what God has done in your lives, so that we may know, so that Niamey may know, so that Niger may know and so that the world may know that Jesus is a healing Jesus.
Richard Roberts Why we had the dog inside, I’ll never know, but I walk up and She smiles at me and I see her, she has her back to me and she is working at the kitchen and so I walked up to her, kind of sneaked up behind her, spin her around, give her a hug and lay a big kiss on her.
Richard Roberts says that we lift our hands unto You, and we give You honor and glory. And we call You our Lord and our Savior, for You are God. You are the Creator. You are the God of heaven and earth, and You delight in Your creation. For You have made man only a little lower than the angels, and You’ve given us a mind, and You’ve given us a body, and You’ve given us a spirit. And it is with that spirit that we worship You, in spirit and in truth.
And so tonight here on these rally grounds, we give You honor and we give You praise, for there is no God like You. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Let’s give the Lord a wave offering. Hallelujah!
Lindsay Roberts stated that father, we wave our hands. We give You a wave offering, and we praise You in this place tonight. We thank You, and we give You the honor and the glory, in Jesus’ name, amen. Let us put our hands together and give a praise to the Lord. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
I want some of the testimonies that have come the past few nights to come forward. I’m asking the pastors to bring some of the tremendous miracles that have happened onto the platform. I want to begin tonight with some testimonies.
If you have received a tremendous healing in the last two nights, then I want you to begin to come to the platform. If you were crippled and you could not walk, make your way to the platform.
If you were blind and you could not see but now you can see, come to the platform. If you were deaf but now you can hear, I want you to come to the platform. What a wonderful way to build people’s faith. When you see someone who’s had a miracle, it causes your faith to rise.
Richard Roberts – Once team members begin to do that, they begin to walk on the field and use their gifts and they become Paul and Polly Player.
Richard Roberts stated that begin to come to the platform. Come to my right. Come to my left. Line up. Come and give a testimony. If you can tell there’s a healing, if you can tell God’s doing something, step out. Come to this platform and give a word of testimony. Come quickly.
If you can tell there’s a healing, come now. God showed me there would be many. If you can tell the difference, come quickly. Come quickly.
Lindsay Roberts says thats the man of God started preaching, a man was bringing his wife who . . . for five years. And he was bringing her down to this stadium. But the moment he got to the door here . . . to the stadium. As they stepped through that door . . . (Applause)
RR: Did you receive healing? Yes, David.
DAVID: For two years this lady has had a pain or a pressure on her chest. Tonight when you prayed, the pressure has left.
RR: What happened when we prayed?
MAN: When you prayed, there was a movement in my chest . . . she found out that she can now breathe very well. The pain is gone.

MAN: This lady’s had heart problems for 15 years. She was so bad that she couldn’t even walk . . . She began to walk. And she’s been totally healed.
Richard Roberts – This man and this woman, they are players. They have grass stains on their uniforms, black stuff under their eyes.
Richard Roberts says and so I telephoned home. My father was out of town preaching, but my mother was home. I said, “Mother, I want to come home and go to Oral Roberts University.”
She said, “I don’t think you can get in.” My own mother said, “I don’t think you can get in.” She said, “You’ve developed some habits in your life, and we have a lifestyle and an Honor Code. And to come to ORU, you have to agree not to smoke, not to drink alcohol, not to take drugs, not to live an ungodly lifestyle. You have to agree not to lie or steal or cheat.” She said, “I don’t know if you can get in.”
I said, “I can change.”
She said, “You think you can change?”
I said, “Yes, I can change.”
Oral Roberts stated that the next year I came to ORU. And while I was there, God got hold of my life. And I fell on my knees, and I prayed a sinner’s prayer. And I asked Jesus Christ to come into my heart. And God saved me that night. That night I was baptized in the Holy Spirit, and I began to speak with other tongues as the Holy Spirit gave the utterance.
I did not get to be a nightclub entertainer, but I got to preach the gospel. (Applause)
Thirteen years ago I became President of the university that I ran away from. I had earned a bachelor’s degree, and then a master’s degree, and then a doctorate degree. And I had served by my father for many years. He stepped down after 30 years as the first President. That was 13 years ago. I have served now as the second President for these 13 years.
We have more than 5,000 students. They come from all over the world. We have 60 majors on the undergraduate level. We also have a school of nursing, a school of business, a school of theology, and a school of education. It is fully accredited by every accrediting agency.
Richard Roberts – They are players, they are using their unique abilities to further the church. We have about 1,000 players in our ministry here, people who recognize their specific talents, they know their position and they are playing their position.
There is a hell. I don’t want to go there. There is a heaven, and that’s where I’m going someday. The Bible says, “If you confess your sins, God is faithful and just to forgive you and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness.”
Richard Roberts says that there’s some of you here tonight who have never made a commitment of your life to the Lord, but you do not want to leave this crusade without committing your life to God. I believe that my prayers can help you. But you’re going to have to cooperate. You’ll have to do what I say.
I’m asking every man, every woman, every young person who is tired of running from God, you’re tired of the lifestyle, you want to repent, you want to ask God to forgive you, and you want to live for God, and you’d like me to pray a salvation prayer with you, if that’s you, if I’m describing you, then put your hand up high. I want to pray for you. Hold it high. This is a call for salvation.
Oral Robertsstated now you with your hands up, rush to this altar right now. Rush to this altar. I want to pray for you right here. Come and stand before me. If you’re coming from my left or right, I’ll wait. If you’re coming from the back of the stadium, I’ll wait. I want to lead you in a sinner’s prayer.
The Bible says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Sure, we all make mistakes. Sometimes we even commit sin. But a person who is a sinner is a person who has made sin a way of life. And you’ll lose your soul, and I don’t want that to happen to you.
And I want everyone who can hear my voice, who wants a personal relationship with Jesus, you know you’re lost, you know that you’re not living for God, but you want to begin living for Him tonight, if you do, then come to this altar. Come to the front or come to the back, and let me pray. I want to pray. I am willing to pray. I am able to pray. But there’s nothing I can do unless you let me pray.
Richard Roberts – The Fellowship of Las Colinas has a purpose. We exist to reach up, that is worship, expressing love to God. We also exist to reach out, that is evangelism, sharing Christ with others.
