Richard Roberts Finds New Ways to Spark Miracles in Underdeveloped Countries

by | Jun 1, 2021 | Supernatural & Dreams

Six years ago, at age 66, Richard Roberts heard from the Lord, who told him the days of Roberts’ healing crusades were finished. It came as a shock to the healing evangelist, who spent a great deal of his life witnessing God’s miracles and wonders through those crusades.

Roberts, son of legendary evangelist Oral Roberts, asked God what that meant for him. What did He want Roberts to do next? After all, during his years as a minister he had laid hands on 25 U.S. presidents, prime ministers, and kings and queens around the world. He had preached in 45 nations.

With the technology available today, the answer was simple. Roberts, who has been on television and radio for decades, would reach the masses through other media he had not previously used, such as the internet and the podcast airwaves. One of those avenues is his Expect a Miracle with Richard Roberts podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. He was also counseled to put resources on electronic tablets and give them to pastors in nations who could not afford them.

“By that time, I had stepped down as president of Oral Roberts University, of which I had been president for 15 years,” Roberts told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “And the Lord said, ‘I want you to focus now on the pastors of underdeveloped nations, teaching them on healing in the Holy Spirit and to seek faith.’ We’re battling about how to do that now, how to go to these nations and be more effective than just going in for a few days and then going home.

“My wife and I were walking one night with staff members, and they said you need to put your entire school on a tablet and take all of the resources of the Oral Roberts Ministry all these years and put all of the audio, video and printed material on it,” Roberts said. “And you need to go to the nations of the earth and put those tablets as a seed into the hands of underdeveloped nations pastors where there is little to no internet.

“It got into my heart, and we’ve done that for a while now,” Roberts added. “I’ve been doing this in India, Africa, the northernmost part of Canada. We’re continuing to do it and get these tablets with some 20,000 pages of resources, plus hundreds of hours of audio and video and teaching the entire school. … They’ve been completing these three-day seminars, and these ministers who are making $50 a month are teaching Holy Spirit healing and seeking faith. Their churches are multiplying. They are exploding.”
