In 2004, while appearing on Kenneth Copeland's Believer's Voice of Victory Program, evangelist Oral Roberts says he heard God's voice very clearly say His church has been infected with the spirit of weakness.
Some 17 years later, it appears things have worsened. Much of the church has conformed to the ideals of the world around it, and that, Roberts says, should serve as a wakeup call to the body of Christ.
"I asked God what was the condition of the church and what effect should this revelation He is bringing as a wakeup call would have on his church," said Roberts, who died in 2009. "I'll never forget what He said, and I say it very carefully without trying to offend anyone.
"He said there is an emptiness in my church," Roberts continued. "He said there is a weakness, a wimpiness, you know, like being a wimp There is a spirit of weakness in the people that are trying to proclaim my gospel. He said they are not feeling Me on the inside of them. ... He said there is not very much happening. There has got to be a wakeup because the Second Coming is going to change everything and change every human being who has lived before and who is alive now."
