And I had a reality check that day. It’s not about me; it’s not about my labeling, it’s not about you; it’s not about your labeling. If you are Christian, it means you are in Christ Jesus. It’s all about Him. And all you have the right to do is say, “Yes, Sir.”
John 17:1. This is when Jesus was getting ready to go to glory. But before He goes back to glory, He’s going to get crucified. And if any of you’ve seen The Passion, you know what you’re about to read. He said, “Father, the hour is come. Glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son may glorify Thee.” Go to the 5th verse. “And now, Father, glorify?” are you getting that glory word? I want you to burn that into your spirit right now. “And now, oh, Father, glorify Me with Thine own self, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.”
The glory that He had before the foundation of the earth, He said use that same glory.
Number 7. “Now they have known that all things whatsoever you have given me are of You. For I have given unto them the words which You gave to me, and they have received them.”
First He gave it, but someone had to receive it.
“And know surely that I came out of You, and they have believed it.” First they heard it, then they received it, then they believed it.
“And I pray for them. I don’t pray for the whole world.” Can you imagine that? But that’s what He said. “But only for those which you have given me, for they are mine.”
Thirteenth verse: “And now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they might have joy fulfilled within themselves. I have given them Thy word, and the world hated them.” Hello, we know that one. “Because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that You take them out of the world, just keep them from evil.”
But you get to the teenagers, and truthfully, they look through you. They don’t just look at you. They can read you like a book. They have been there, they have done that, they have seen nMTV, and nothing you say can go past them. Teenagers have a discernment that I’ve never seen in other people in my life. They can read your mail. And they know when you are blowing smoke in nyour face, and they will look at you and say, “You’re blowing smoke in my face,? and make no bones about it.
So when I was asked to go to Victory Christian School and preach to teenagers, you know how when you’re a parent, you say to your little children all the time, “Don’t you embarrass me.” And then when your children are teenagers and coming to preach at their school, they say to you, “Don’t you embarrass me.” So the pressure was on.
And while they were saying that to me over and over, I asked the Father God, “What in the world am I going to say that will minister to them?” And now I look back on it, and I believe it’s, “Be the message.” They want you to be the message.
We gathered a bunch of kids at my house, and we were all eating and goofing and laughing and the kids were watching television, and we began to talk about some of the kids in the class that I would be speaking to. And so therefore, I began to panic even more.
And one little girl by the name of Katie Volvo (?) piped up, and she said, “You know, we’re not what we do.” And that ran through me. She said, “We’re not what we do. Sometimes we’re great kids who do stupid things. And we get labeled for those stupid things for the rest of our lives. The best thing that you could ever do for us, is help us get over those labels.”
Now you who had the problem with your eyes, check your eyes. Look around. You who had the problem with your hearing, check yourself. You who had the pain in your back or your legs, check yourself. I just sent the word to you for healing.
Now here’s a demonstration. I didn’t lay hands on anybody, but I sent the word. I do this on television because I can’t physically touch people. And people get healed every night that I’m on.
According to Oral Roberts who can tell there’s a difference in your eyes since we just prayed? Raise your hand up. Stand up if you’re seeing better. Stand up. Stand up if you’re seeing better. Stand up. Can you see better? Can you see better? Can you see better? Can you see better? Can you see better? Can you see better? Can you see better? Can you see better? That’s an example of sending the word.
Now who received healing in your back, wave your hand. Who can tell the pain is gone from your back? Stand up. Lindsay Roberts says that begin to bend. Can you tell a difference? Is it better? Yes. Is it better? Yes. Is it better? Yes. Is it better? Yes. Is it better? Yes. Is it better? Is it better? Yes. Is it better? Is it better way up there? Yes. Is it better?
You got healed in your knees. I didn’t pray for knees, she got healed in her knees.
INTERPRETER: No, you said legs.
RR: I did say legs. Sometimes I forget what I say.
INTERPRETER: You said legs, yeah. She’s included.
RR: Yeah, one more. Who is hearing better? Suddenly now your ear’s opened and you can hear me better now. Okay, I’ll get back to that. Sometimes I forget what I said. Who’s hearing me better, wave your hand. Is your hearing better? Can you hear me better? Hearing me better? Hearing me better?
Richard Roberts – Who can tell you were healed in your legs? Your legs? Stand up. The healing’s in your legs, stand up. Are your legs better? Better? Leg’s better? Leg’s better? Leg’s better? Leg’s better? Your leg’s better? All right, that is an example of sending the word. Let’s give praise to the Lord. Hallelujah!
RR: Hallelujah! Heavenly Father, it is not by might, nor by power, but it is by the Holy Spirit. It is not by the preaching of man by the enticing words, but it’s preaching with the demonstration of the power of God.
Thank You for the testimony of that boy. Thank You that that boy did not die. He did not lose the use of his arms and legs, but that today You touched him from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet. And he will never be the same and neither will his mother. Neither will his family. Neither will those who are involved in the medical clinic today. That word will spread throughout San Salvador, and many lives will be touched as a result.
I praise You, and I thank You that tonight is a night of miracles. And I praise You, and I worship You. Satan, you take your hands off of us. We do not belong to you. We belong to God. We were paid for by the shed blood of Jesus, and we’ll glorify God in every area of our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen, amen. Give praise to the Lord tonight. Come on, give praise to the Lord. Hallelujah! God bless you. You may be seated.
I want to thank you for receiving me and my team this week. I have been treated with such love and kindness in El Salvador. Congressman, thank you so much. To all the pastors and ministers, thank you so much. To all those who’ve helped us with our medical program here and in the distribution of food, thanks to all of you.
Richard Roberts – I’d like to ask the pastors if they will stand. Give them a God bless you tonight. I would like to ask all the medical team who has been giving of their services this week through the work of the doctors and the nurses and the medicines and all the food, I’d like for you all to stand, please, and let the people see you. They have donated their time.
