SPKM CLARENCE BOYD I was probably the first student who was from that denomination at Oral Roberts University.  Today you probably have anywhere from 5, 6, or 7.  Oral Roberts continues to draw from our denomination young people who are interested in the charismatic movement.

SPOR ORAL ROBERTS Of course, the important thing here is that no matter where you are from as a faculty member, an administrator, or as a student, you are in a charismatic university built on the Holy Spirit and the authority of God and we’re trying to break down all these walls of separation  IL01 and be human beings, be people of God.  I remember Ben Gurion said something to me, Richard, when I was with him just before he died.  He was the first prime minister of Israel and I had a group of ORU students visiting him in Israel and I asked him what he thought was the greatest scripture in the Bible and right there where the Bible was written in the Holy Land the prime minister of Israel, Ben Gurion, said to me, “The greatest scripture in the Bible is the scripture in Genesis where it says, ‘And God made him man.'”  He didn’t make him Jew, he didn’t make him Gentile, he didn’t make him black, white, red, yellow.  He just made him man.  (APPLAUSE) Man, man, a human being. And if there is one thing standing out here, Dean Boyd, it is that human beings are at Oral Roberts University and we sit down and we get together and we love each other and we get our education.  We keep our burning as we get our education.  Now say that a different way, Richard.

SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS Well, I always tell people that ORU is the university where I got my learning but kept my burning.

SPOR ORAL ROBERTS Now that’s the way to say it.

SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS I’m a graduate of ORU.  And while the ORU Singers are getting ready to sing right now, I want to say to you as a parent or as a grandparent, or as an aunt or uncle of someone who is interested in ORU, or as a young person who would like to attend ORU, there are still a few spaces available for the fall semester coming up in August.  We begin our fall semester around the last week or so of August.  All you have to do is pick up your telephone and call the Abundant Life Prayer Group at area 918-495-7777.  Now when you do, they will ask you some questions that will facilitate us to get information to you such as your social security number, your year of high school graduation, whether you just graduated from high school or whether you are transferring from another school, your grade point average, your SAT or ACT scores, whichever are the ones you need for ORU.  We can help you.  And there are scholarships available in some categories so don’t let the lack of funds turn you off on trying.  Call us and let us know.  There are still a few spaces available for the fall semester. Right now the Oral Roberts University Singers are going to minister one of the greatest gospel songs ever written, “How Great Thou Art.” (APPLAUSE)

SPKM ORU SINGERS  SONG How_great_thou_art  (APPLAUSE)   AD02 PROMO for RR’s Album, “I Am Determined” for a Seed-Faith gift of $10.  (APPLAUSE)

SPRR RICHARD ROBERTS You can have your own copy of my brand new album, “I Am Determined,” or the cassette, “I Am Determined.” All you need to do is sow a seed of $10 or more into this healing ministry for everything we’re doing for God.  There you can see it on your screen now.  Ask for the album or the cassette.  Just say, “Richard, please send me the album, or the cassette.”  Write me:  Richard Roberts, Tulsa, Oklahoma, or in Canada:  Richard Roberts, Toronto, Ontario.  Or you can sow a seed-faith gift on your credit card by calling the Abundant Life Prayer Group at 918-495-7777.  There is the number on your screen right now, and I will rush the tape or record album immediately to you.  Just let me know which one you want and we’ll put it into the mail. We were talking about the upcoming fourth annual Oral Roberts Ministers’ Conference in association with the Charismatic Bible Ministries Fellowship this next June and I thought it would be most appropriate for you to hear one of the most unusual testimonies that has come out of this past year’s conference.  My special guests today are Steve and Denise Vickers from Montgomery, Alabama, pastors of Christian Life Church. (APPLAUSE)
