The Living Oracles of God
“And with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us” – (Acts ).
“…because that unto them were committed the oracles of God” – (Rom.3:2).
“..which be the first principles of the oracles of God” – (Heb.5:12).
“If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God” – (I Pet.4:11).
“And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites” – (Du.17:18).
“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever” – (Ps.12:6,7).
A copy is a reproduction of the original. God preserves the copies of the original scriptures which are in heaven that He reproduces for man. The King of Israel was to have a copy of the Bible made for himself to read on the first day he sat on the throne as king so that he could read it all the days of his life. A king’s word has authority and so it is with the King James Bible. It is the Authorized Version, authorized by the King of England. But more importantly it was authorized by the King of Kings of the whole universe – God the Father. The KJV was a copy of the original Word of God. It was an exact, perfect reproduction of the original with no errors because it was preserved for generations and will abide forever.
The origin of the O.T. originals came from God the Father and the origin of the N.T. originals came from God the Son and God the Holy Spirit was the inspiration of them. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” – (2 Tim.3:16). The KJV is God’s preserved, infallible, inerrant word. It is a copy of God’s inspired Word and it has been preserved perfect. Our great and mighty God can make a perfect copy of His original whenever it pleases Him.
Do you think man has the only power to make copies of words and books? The computer brain tells the printer to print certain words and out come the words perfectly in copies of the original. You can push a button to have it printed in many different languages. Do you not think that God can make copies of His book as perfectly as man’s printers? The Lord makes copies of His original scriptures without error in one jot or tittle and He does it in any language He chooses. How foolish to believe that the almighty, omniscient God who created the universe cannot preserve His very own words free from error for each generation. When He gave the English speaking people the KJ Bible it was perfect and free from error and He doesn’t need to make another. It’s the King’s Bible – authorized by the king and has God’s stamp of authority on it.
The King James Bible is the very oracles of God. It comes from God the Father and the most holy place in heaven. The most holy place is called the oracle – (I King.6:5). They are the living or lively oracles of God. “…and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us” – (Acts ). “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God which liveth and abideth forever” – (I Pet.1:23). God’s Bible is a living Bible. It’s an incorruptible, eternal life giving seed that germinates in you when you have faith in Christ and get born again. Jesus said – “… the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” – (Jn.6:63). (Heb.4:12) says – “for the word of God is quick and powerful…” No other book on earth gives life – eternal life. Hold the KJ Bible in your hand knowing it’s the preserved, inerrant Word of God.
The Jews had the oracles of God (Rom.3:12) and they were committed to the true Christian Church along with the N.T. scriptures. And if you’re not born again of God’s Holy Spirit who wrote the Bible, you’ll never know which is the true Word of God. The oracles of God are entrusted unto us and we must fight the good fight of faith for them.
All of God’s teachers need to teach from the King James Bible to people who are only using King James Bibles which are the oracles of God, that come directly from the mouth of God. “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” – (Heb.5:12-14). You need to quit using those 2% watered down milk versions of the Bible and start using the KJ 100% whole milk. And you need to study and meditate on the KJV so that you grow up and are weaned from the milk to strong meat.
no Christian or Christian leader speaks as the oracle of God when he speaks any
words other than King James Bible words. We are not infallible in our doctrine
or teaching. We make mistakes when we speak our own words. If all we speak are
King James Bible words, then we speak as the oracles of God. When you are born
again your body becomes the
When the Lord Jesus Christ walked on this earth, He was the Son of God,
God in human flesh and He was the living oracles of God – He was the mouthpiece
of God. He was the word made flesh and dwelt among us. “…and his name is called the Word of God” – (Rev.19:13). Every word He spoke was as the oracle of God.
And when the prophets spoke the words of God recorded in the Bible, they were
speaking as the oracles of God also. And if you’re born again of the Holy Spirit,
and speak the King James Bible then you are the living oracles of God. As it is
written – “if any man
speak, let him speak as the
oracles of God” – (I Pet.3:11). Again, if you’re born again, then the Holy
Spirit is in you and you are the Most Holy place and the heart of the
Don’t listen to teachers who expound ‘the underlying text’ or says ‘this word means’ and then give you the meaning of the Greek and Hebrew word and not the meaning of the English word. Don’t let anyone destroy the King James oracles of God by tunneling from underneath. The King James Bible is written in English; study only the English and reject everything else whether spoken or written. When the KJV says “oracles” don’t let the devils like the N.I.V. people, who took “oracles” away every time in the Bible, deceive you. Don’t let anyone change it temporarily when they teach it orally or permanently when they write a new perversion of the Bible. The KJ Bible is preserved infallible, believe it – God wrote it. College has destroyed these teachers and they need that one teach them again which be the first principles of the oracles of God. The KJ Bible is the Oracles of God and it is a great sin to pervert their meaning. Salvation is revealed to us through them. Take heed how you teach and preach these oracles. You need never to change and correct the KJ Bible by going into the original languages. Never correct God’s Word in your pride; the bible corrects you – (2 Tim.3:16).
Don’t let anyone teach you anything if he speaks in English and changes the name of Jesus Christ to a name like Yaweh or any other so-called sacred name. The Holy Spirit is not in him because the Holy Spirit will always glorify Jesus Christ – “The name which is above every name” – (Philip.2:9). False teachers are removing the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and substituting another so-called sacred name for it. Beware of them.
Don’t follow the new heresy of hidden prophecies supposedly ‘encoded’ in the Hebrew and Greek of the Bible. There have been a spate of new books out about hidden codes in the Bible which titillate people with prophesies which are claimed to have been encoded and concealed by God in the ‘original’ Bible text. They claim there is a Bible beneath the Bible. There is no new revelation buried beneath the Bible that only a computer geek Greek and Hebrew scholar can find. The first error that Satan propagated is that the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God is found only in the Greek and Hebrew texts. That God could not preserve His Word free from error in any language. This was the first Bible beneath the Bible correcting our King James Bible with the ancient Bible manuscripts called ‘codex,’ especially ‘codex’ Sinaiticus and ‘codex’ Vaticanus. (The word ‘code’ is from the Latin ‘codex’). This was the first hidden code – the codex. This error opened the door for the second error of secret hidden codes in the Codex, the second Bible beneath the Bible which is coming out now. Read the KJ English Bible, it’s everything you need. Don’t spend one minute learning the Hebrew and Greek. God has already translated the Hebrew and Greek into the perfect English word. Use a Webster’s dictionary and find the meaning of our English words and run the key word through your Strong’s Concordance. Each place you find your key word will give you more light as the Holy Spirit teacher in you teaches you the truth.
There is one particular circumstance that enables us to be the oracles of God without speaking only Bible words. During the soon coming Tribulation, when some Christians are delivered up to the religious and political leaders as criminals, it is written – “But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak but the Holy Ghost” – (Mk.13:11). It’s an opportunity to preach to those before whom you are brought as criminals, to whom otherwise you could not have access, as a testimony and a witness against them. Exactly as Paul was brought before Felix, and Festus, and Agrippa, and Caesar and gave testimony against them as he kept appealing to a higher court in his own defense. When Paul spoke it was as the oracles of God and His words are recorded as scripture.
“For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” – (Mt.7:29). The problem is final authority. Either God’s Word is the final authority or man’s word is. We are to preach as the oracles of God and not like the modern-day scribes (translators and commentators). We don’t say ‘a better rendering is,’ ‘the Greek text means,’ ‘it is highly probable,’ or ‘it is supposed.’ We preach the KJ authorized Bible and say, “It is written, it is written, it is written.” There are no mistakes in the oracles of God.
Are you saved and born again in Christ? If not, repent of your sins and believe on the Lord Jesus in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and become a new born again creature in Christ. Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. Your old man is crucified with Christ and a new holy man is born – “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” – (2 Cor.5:17).
O do not spurn the love and grace and mercy of the Father in giving His only beloved Son on the cross as atonement for your sins. “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him” – (I Jn.4:9). Jesus Christ came to earth to solve man’s greatest problem: sin and the punishment of sin, which is death – “The wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23). You can have eternal life instead of eternal death in the lake of fire. I beseech you in Christ’s stead – “be ye reconciled to God” – (2 Cor.5:20). Be saved today. Jesus Christ is the only way for you to become the oracle of God – “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Christ” – (Heb.10:19).
Be born again and become the living oracle of God preaching the KJ Bible.
