Here, the Roman went out to meet Jesus, and he said, "I was--I'm not worthy that You'd come under my roof. I--I'm not--I--I'm not worthy; and I--I didn't--I don't count myself that way." But said, "My son is very sick, and You just speak the word (See?), and my son will live." What was it? Distance made no difference (See?), because God is omnipresent. God is omnipotent. And everywhere God is, omnipotence is there. And God being omnipresent, that makes God everywhere, all over. See, God's just as great in Germany, in Switzerland, and down in Africa right this minute as He is right here. There you are.

So now, he said, "I'm not worthy that You'd come to my roof; just speak the word." What was it? It was that Roman's faith. He believed it.
And Jesus said, "Go your way; your son lives."
And he took out two day's journey. And the next day, 'fore he got home, he met some of his servants coming. And they said, "Thy son liveth."
And the Roman was so thrilled until he said, "What time of day did he start getting better? What part of the day?"
He said, "About the eleventh hour he begin to amend."
And the Roman knew that it was the very time that Jesus said, "Thy son liveth," and he had believed. Amen.

Omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, infinite, that's God. So when they make a phone call and say, "Pray," that contacts, and your faith brings God. It's a thing that brings the prayer and God together on the scene. Prayer, faith changes from here to here. It brings it together.

"Speak the word. All I want you to do is say the Word, and everything's all right." See? He didn't have to be there. Just say the word. Why? God is omnipresent. He's all powerful. And He's just as powerful beneath the world as He was on top the world, or on either side. He's God. "And the only thing You have to do is just speak the word," he said.

And now, faith does the rest of it; faith does the rest. So you must have faith for a foundation. All Christianity, all you are, all you'll ever be, is based upon faith in the Word.

That's the reason I believe the Word. See? I can't put my faith on nothing else. If I was going to put it on the church, which church would I put it on, Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostals? What would I put it on? I don't know. They're all scruple up and everything else, twist lines and everything else. But when I put my faith in His Word, it's anchored. Nobody interpret it; here it is: THUS SAITH THE LORD. Then I believe that. There's a basis.
