Never judge a book by its cover. You are not, you are not what you’ve been labeled. You are not what you label yourself. You are of God, little children. I want you to turn to John 17. And if you go over to John 17?while you’re doing that – a couple days ago I had this huge discussion with my daughters, and we were talking about different people and how to impact their lives, and what would you do to impact their lives? And one of my daughters piped up and said, ”Mom, why do you do that all the time? Why do you give into people that don’t appear like they need it, or don’t appear like they’re paying any attention? Why do you do for people who make fun of you? You seem to go out for people who are like the ones who always hurt our family, or the one who mocks our family. You seem to go after those people.
And she said, “You know, Mom, it’s even weird because sometimes you know they’re making fun of you. You know they’re using you; you know they’re making a fool of you.”
I said, “Bingo. Because God said He would use the things that the world calls foolish to confound the wise.” And I said, “Olivia, let me tell you what it is. It’s called obedience.”
When God lays people on your heart, you have two choices: you can look at their labels, look at what they say to you, what they say about you, what somebody else says about them. My kids have been warned about more people under the sun. And then I look back and say, “Do you know many people have been warned about my kids?”
Oral Roberts stated Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Good morning, everyone. I’m so glad to see you. Lift your hands unto the Lord this morning. Father, we bless You and we praise You and we give You the honor and the glory.
Thank You for every pastor here this morning, for how beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel, the good news of Jesus. How beautiful are your feet today. The Lord says that to you. Your feet are beautiful because they carry you to preach the gospel.
Lindsay Roberts says that father, I thank You for this opportunity to be in El Salvador. Thank You for these men and women of God. Lord, let me speak like a man from another world. Anoint me afresh and anew. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight. And may everything that I say and do bring honor and glory to God, in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah! Amen. Come on, give Him praise.
(Speaking in Spanish) I have come with expectation, and I praise the Lord. Hallelujah!
Richard Roberts – Good morning to you all. Are you ready for the Word of God? Well, I am honored to be here today. Special thanks to President Saka for his Presidential invitation to come to this nation. Special thanks to our organizing pastors and all the leaders who have made this possible. Special thanks to you for coming today. I am excited about this morning, and I am excited about tonight.
Lindsay Roberts says that he began to walk away, when the Holy Spirit spoke to him and said, “If you’re not willing to pray for him, you’re not worthy to be called My child.” And he whirled around and took the man in his arms and prayed for his healing.
God has put His stamp of approval on laying hands on the sick. Pastor, can I leave the platform for just a moment? Is there someone right here in this section who has a problem with your back? Come here, please. Yes, you too. May I give a demonstration? Right here.
Oral Roberts says that left hand, right hand, it doesn’t matter, because it’s not my hand. It’s His hand. See, it doesn’t matter if I use one hand or the other hand or both hands because it’s not my power. It’s His power. Is your back hurting? Do you have pain in your back? Do you have pain in your back?
INTERPRETER: Yes, there’s a bump in her back.
RR: You have pain in your back?
INTERPRETER: She always carries a pain.
RR: I’m going to lay my hands on you, and there’s a change that’s going to begin. Richard Robertssays that the reason I’m doing this is because this afternoon I saw a vision of my doing this. The Lord said, “You call out three,” not two, not four, three. My brother, would you come stand behind them?
In the authority of the name of Jesus, I speak to this back condition, come out. In Jesus’ name, back pain, come out. In the name of Jesus, back pain, come out. Now start bending. Move your back. Start moving your back, whatever you could not do. Now what difference can you tell in your back now?
INTERPRETER: The pain is going out.
RR: The pain is going out. Where was it? There? Loose it. Now just move it. Move it. Okay now? Yes. Pain’s gone?
Richard Roberts says that and some have taken the scriptures out of context, like, for example, the scripture, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Actually, it is more productive to give than receive. Because only what is given can be multiplied back. If you take nothing and you multiply it, you have nothing left. Zero multiplied by zero equals zero.
And there is a Bible principle, but most Christians today do not understand it. So in order to understand it tonight, let me take you back to the beginning. Let me take you back to the days of Abraham.
Oral Roberts University says that Abraham was like David. He was a man after God’s own heart. Abraham was the first man to know who God was. He knew that God was most high. He knew that He was the possessor of heaven and earth, and he knew that He was the one who delivered him from all of his enemies. Lindsay Roberts says that when he knew who God was, he knew who he was. You will never know who you are until you know who God is.
And God is a God who believes in sowing seed. As long as the earth remains, there will be seedtime and harvesttime. When Abraham saw that He was most high, that He was possessor of heaven and earth and that God was the one who delivered him from all of his enemies, then he did something. He brought an offering unto the Lord. He gave.
Richard Roberts – I can give to you without loving you, but I cannot love you without giving to you. Abraham loved God, and so he gave to Him. And God set up a principle. It is just as true tonight as it was in Bible days: “Only what you sow shall you reap. Be not deceived, God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
