John 15:15-25 (MSG)

11-15 “I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are my friends when you do the things I command you. I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.

16 “You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.

17 “But remember the root command: Love one another.

18-19 “If you find the godless world is hating you, remember it got its start hating me. If you lived on the world’s terms, the world would love you as one of its own. But since I picked you to live on God’s terms and no longer on the world’s terms, the world is going to hate you.

 20 “When that happens, remember this: Servants don’t get better treatment than their masters. If they beat on me, they will certainly beat on you. If they did what I told them, they will do what you tell them.

21-25 “They are going to do all these things to you because of the way they treated me, because they don’t know the One who sent me. If I hadn’t come and told them all this in plain language, it wouldn’t be so bad. As it is, they have no excuse. Hate me, hate my Father—it’s all the same. If I hadn’t done what I have done among them, works no one has ever done, they wouldn’t be to blame. But they saw the God-signs and hated anyway, both me and my Father.

Interesting—they have verified the truth of their own Scriptures where it is written, ‘They hated me for no good reason.’

During the storms, I happened to listen to a few sermons that I have recorded. The following is a short sermon by Terry Law, which I believe was recorded around 1997. It was at a conference that I would attend every year for over a decade.

The place was the in the Mabee Center, at the International Charismatic Bible Ministries, sponsored by Oral Roberts. 

It was basically a fellowship where a few thousand Charismatic leaders would attend from all walks of life, yet it was also blessed with many of the major well known leaders, as well. 

During the early years, they would give a number of speakers each a ten or twenty minute opportunity to share what was on their hearts.

You see, there were so many well known speakers that they didn't have the available time to really give each one an hour or two, as many deserved. 

Nevertheless, after Reverend Law, ministered, it cut deep into your heart, and the place just went silent. 

Tonight, the Lord told me to transcribe it and to post it.  

I have been made aware of at least one church that is beginning a "Fast," for our nation, so I believe that perhaps, that might be the reason why the Lord asked me to post this tonight? 

Anyway, so Richard Roberts, had just called up Terry Law, to share what had been on his heart...

As he hands him the microphone, he says, "Here Terry"

Terry law begins, 

"Morning, when I came to Tulsa from Canada, I was told I was going to the buckle of the Bible Belt, So, I decided this morning to show you what a true Bible Belt looks like. Ah, this is a Bible belt and a three weeks ago, four weeks ago, so I smuggled some Bibles into China with my two sons, I have a son here at ORU as a Junior, he's twenty one and my other son Jason is fifteen. And we put these Bibles into these belts and ah wrapped them around our waist like this and then tied it around the back. And a, then we ah, we took them into China, and we had another seven Bibles in our suitcases. We took in about fifty Bibles, my fifteen year old Jason was quite nervous, and if you ever saw anyone look guilty in all your life, Jason was like the one. (Congregation laughs)

And he was ah sitting on the airplane and we were flying from Hong Kong into Beijing, and he couldn't sit still, he was just shuffling around like this and looking right and left, doing all these things, but we had a great time getting in there, but there is one story that I wanted to tell you that I heard when I was over there. We were starting something major while in China, we printed over two hundred and fifty thousand New Testaments, inside China last year and a million stories of Jesus inside China and were right now working with the faculty right here at Oral Roberts University inside the establishment of audio Bible Curriculum. And were going to have for the closed nations of the world. It will be a four level course, that we will introduce to nations like Vietnam, I was in Ho Chi Minh city, two  months ago, we were doing things there and Cuba, were doing things there, but this Bible course is going to be something that we will be able to smuggle into the closed nations of the world. Were looking into Iran, Iraq, a lot of those areas, as well. 

When I was in Hong Kong, I heard a story and I have never heard anything quite like this, and I wanted to share it with you because it's a story of signs and wonders. We hired a man to run our Chinese operations earlier this year. And he was feeling bad and he had a pain in his shoulder and his chest. He decided to go into, to meet with a Chinese doctor in South China, in the Province of Quan ge, and for Medical treatment and while he was there, he led three young people in the neighborhood to the Lord, while he was staying in the doctors home. Within the mountainous area of South China, and ah, the three young people that he led to Christ got very excited about their new found Faith and they went out, and now they brought in twenty other people.

Now you gotta understand China, Ah our friend who I am talking to you about, did a survey in Chin zing, Chin zing is a half an hour from Hong Kong. He did a survey on the sidewalk and ask 500 people if they knew or had ever heard the name Jesus Christ? Two people out of the 500 had heard the name and they thought that it was acquainted with some kind of religion of the foreigners. Four hundred and ninety eight people had never heard of Jesus Christ, didn't know the name, didn't know who he was. 

Anyway, these three converts invited twenty others to come and listen to the man who is a head of our ministry to speak. And he, he wanted one of the young converts to pray, She had never prayed, she had gotten right with God the day before, so he was encouraging her to pray out loud. So, she closed her eyes and prayed and all these other twenty people didn't know what to do while she was doing it, so they just sat and stood there looking at her, and ah, all of a sudden the power of God, this young lady was nervous, she didn't know how to pray effectually she had never heard a loud prayer in her life. And the only thing she knew to do was to thank God for what he was doing in her life. So she starts to thank God, And while she does it, the Power of God hit a crippled man, who was at the back of the crowd, his name was "Crippled Jang, he was 71 years old and he had Polio as a child, his left leg had never grown properly, the thigh had never developed, the calf had never developed, it was about four inches short, the leg was like a dried up prune, the power of God hit this man through this young ladies prayer, knocked him back against the wall, and onto a bench, and though he sat there and screamed, the people watched and the leg grew out to the full length, the calf was developed, the thigh developed everything developed right in front of their eyes. And it was like, they had never seen anything like it, they wouldn't know what to do, and in fact all twenty of them fell on their faces and accepted Christ immediately. But the word spread through the village, it was magic, it was magic, and our friend said, "No, it's not magic," he said, I didn't put hands on anybody, I didn't touch anybody, God did this. 

The next day, there were hundreds came, and as many as could got into the Doctor's house, and there was a little child crawling around on the floor, who was deaf and dumb, four years old, and while our friend was teaching, In the middle of his teaching, with no one touching the child, no one saying a word to the child of any kind, all of a sudden the dumb child starts to cry, the mother has never heard a sound come out of this child's mouth, ever, and all of a sudden the child says Mama, like this, his mother screams and jumps to her feet and calls the name of the child, the dumb and the deaf were able to hear instantly by the power of God. Instantly, 

There was a lady with Tuberculoses, and Brother Roberts will appreciate this, a lady with Tuberculoses, She would cough up a cup of blood, sitting in the service listening  to the word of God, Within three days, the Tuberculoses was absolutely healed, there was no coughing, there was no disease in her body, and I mean the people came, fifteen hundred to two thousand people, they baptized three hundred and fifty in the river within two weeks.

Then the police came.

And they grabbed sixty five people. And our friend was amongst them. They put them in secret cells, total darkness, no lights, no windows, they had to stand up for three weeks, there was room for two people to lie on the floor at one time. And ah, there was no toilet facility, they had to use the corner of the room. Try to imagine, they called the young men out, tied them upside down with ropes, beat on the bottom of their feet, and then six of the young women were taken and molested by the guards. 

This is reality people, I am telling you reality, This happened a month ago. And ah...at Night, the guards came for a beautiful young lady, her name was..They called her "Little Red," She was a nineteen year old woman, a beautiful woman, and the guards would come for her and my friend told me, he told us this story in Hong Kong, and we got a video on it, and he was crying as he told the story, and he said, "I wept as I heard her scream, after three weeks, he bribed the guards with his watch. And the guards said, I will give you one phone call, and he called Tulsa, Oklahoma, on a Sunday morning. Nobody is ever in our office Sunday morning in Tulsa, ever. 
Joel, my crusade director had gone into the office to pick up some paper, and he got the call. He phoned me and I was preaching down in College Station, where A&M is in Texas. 

And the guards had said, there was a fifteen hundred dollar fine for illegal activity and practicing public meetings and they told us if we would pay fifteen hundred dollars we could get those sixty five people out of prison. So, I said to Joel, don't even ask questions get the money to Hong Kong today. He did it, sent it to Joseph's wife, our friends wife, and she took it in. 

When they let them out of prison, two of the young men were carried on stretchers and Joseph had to lead "Little red," out, This happened three weeks ago. He had his arm around her waist, she was like a..A vegetable. She could hardly walk, Thirty to forty prison guards watched them as they walked out of the prison. 

One of the guards, the one who was the terror of the prison, who had molested the young woman four times, came running and fell in the dirt, in front of her. 

He said, "I've had no peace."

He said, "I can't live with myself."  

He said, "Will you forgive me?" 

And "Little Red," bent down in the dust, and she took her blouse and she wiped his eyes.

And she said, "I forgive you, but she said "What you really need is..You need Jesus to forgive you. He forgave me two weeks ago, and you need to have inside of you what I have inside of me. 

And he said to her, "Will you try to tell me how to find him?"

And she prayed the "sinner's Prayer," with him in the dirt.

Another three of the guards came running, and knelt beside them, and all four of them gave their lives to Christ. 

"That's reality, half way around the world."...
