Oliver B. Greene
Dr. Oliver B. Greene founded the Gospel Hour, Inc. in 1956 as a Christian outreach using radio, personal appearances, books and audio tapes. The radio program, which began on one station in Georgia, spread through syndication until it reached across the nation. At one time the program was heard on more than 150 stations. The program is currently heard on more than eighty stations in America; on Caribbean Radio Lighthouse, which carries the program throughout the Caribbean area; and worldwide by way of the internet.
Dr. Greene began preaching as an evangelist in the early 1940's and went wherever he was invited to preach. This eventually led to his standard practice of holding revivals in churches and arenas during the winter and holding tent campaigns in the summer. His tents were quite impressive, the largest one being 300 feet long and 150 feet wide. He also travelled extensively overseas, visiting and raising money for missionaries in many different countries. He was truly a "triple threat", spreading the gospel through public speaking, the written word and the medium of radio. His personal ministry ended suddenly on July 26, 1976 when he died of an aneurism in the heart. However, through the prayers and donations of many friends the ministry has continued and reaches thousands daily throughout the world.
After his death, his son, Dr. David B. Greene, along with Dr. Greene's widow and his other son Tom, continued the ministry. David has been involved with the Gospel Hour since childhood, always travelling with his dad in meetings and helping at the Gospel Hour headquarters. He brings to the ministry a scientific and mathematics background, as well as a degree in law. David is a practicing attorney in Greenville and has a website at www.greenelaw.org

1. We have guaranteed victory, because what Jesus is to us who are saved.
Hebrews 2:9-, “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”
Jesus is our Captain of our salvation. Jesus is my guide and he is my Captain. He is my way to salvation.
Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;..”
The climax of our faith
HE IS ALL THAT I NEED. I KNOW THAT GUARANTEED VICTORY, BECAUSE OF WHAT HE IS.
2. We have guaranteed victory, because of what Jesus has done for us.
Hebrews 2:14-15, “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Jesus has done more that any man has done. He conquered the World, the Flesh, the Devil, Hell and the grave.
I am more than conquers in Him.
3. We have guaranteed victory, because of the Victories He has already won.
Colossians 2:14, “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Jesus has already conquered everything that Hell hurled at Him.
Every jot and every title of the Old Testament law and prophets were fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “I came not to destroy the law and the prophets, but to fulfill”
Jesus said, “It is finished.” He has completed every demand, every command, every wish, every desire of a Holy God.
The Son of God nailed everything to the Cross.
He paid the complete penalty.
We are more than conquers though Him, because of all the victories He has won!!
4. We have guaranteed victory, because of His blessed assurance we have.
John 16:33“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
The Son of God moved into this World and in the World he was tested, he was tried, he was tempted, but Jesus conquered the World.
He never sin.
In Jesus we are more than conquers.
5. We have guaranteed victory, on the authority of His promise in His Word.
I Corinthians 10:12-13, “Wherefore let him that
thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
That means that the Son of God will not let the Devil, put anything upon you that God will provide and make a way of escape. If you let God do it.
Oliver B. Green certainly was a past voice of Salvation.
