The Oracles of God

 

“…he even built them for it within, even the oracle, even for the most holy place…” – (I Kings 6:16).

“And with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us” – (Acts 7:38).

“Much every way: chiefly because that unto them were committed the oracles of God” – (Rom.3:2).

“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..” (Heb.5:12).

“If any speak, let him speak as the oracles of God…” – (I Pet.4:11).

 

   An oracle is the person who speaks the words of God and it’s also the place where he speaks the oracles of God. The Lord Jesus Christ is the oracle of God. He was God in human flesh while He was on the earth. He was the mouthpiece of God. It was His blood shed on Calvary that split the veil into the oracle, the most holy place, that offers all salvation and the Holy Ghost. When we’re saved and born again by repentance and faith in Christ, we are baptized and born again by the Holy Ghost into the body of Christ. We become the oracles of God as we preach and teach the King James Bible, which is the written oracles of God. Christ is the only true oracle of God and He has declared to us the mind and will of God.

 

   It is a first principle of the oracles of God, that the O.T. temple and the most holy place in the temple , which was the oracle, has drastically changed in the N.T. God no longer dwells in temples made of wood and stone, but in saved, sanctified bodies of flesh and bone. “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you… for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” – (I Cor.3:16,17). God no longer dwells in dead buildings, but in born again living bodies which collectively is called the body of Christ. When we’re truly saved we become a new creature in Christ, born again of the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Spirit into the body of Christ. All the water in all the baptistries in all the world cannot wash away your sins. Your sins are inward, not outward – “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…” – (I Cor.12:13). Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved, you become a new man, the old man is crucified on the cross with Christ. “If so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not he Spirit of Christ he is none of his” – (Rom.8:9).

 

   The born again saints of God are now the oracles of God. When the Holy Spirit indwells us, our body is now the temple of God, and that certainly includes the oracle, the most holy place. “If any speak, let him speak as the oracles of God.” We orally speak as the oracles of God when we speak God’s written Holy Bible, the KJV, which is the written oracles of God. We are the body of Christ and the oracles of God.

 

   KJ Bible believers have the oracles of God and we aren’t too surprised that the ‘error finders’ don’t find the oracles. We are to speak “as the oracles of God” and not as the Bible correctors who haven’t found God’s oracles yet. ‘The Greek says this and the Hebrew says that’ and ‘a better rendering is’ means he doesn’t have the inerrant, infallible oracles of God. Maybe he has scholarship, but the Holy Spirit is not in him. The person that ‘is’ the oracle of God knows that one of the first principles of God’s Word is that the Word of God judges us; we are not supposed to judge God’s Word. God’s word is the authority and not scholarship. God’s Word corrects us, we don’t correct God’s Word – “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).

 

   This much I know for certain – nobody that uses a translation of the Bible that has taken away the word ‘oracle,’ believes that he has the oracles of God. The NIV has taken away the word ‘oracle’ in every single instance. The NIV error finders take away the written Word of God permanently but many ‘error finders’ who use the KJ Bible, take away God’s Word temporarily when they say ‘a better rendering would be.’ But when they finish, my KJ Bible is still the same. They don’t have the oracles of God either, their college has taken it away. An oracle preacher speaks with a ‘thus saith the Lord’ and doesn’t take away or add to God’s Word. “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” – (Rev.22:18.19). These are very solemn words.

 

  O the audacity of the creature changing the Word of the Creator and not having the faith to believe that God has preserved His Word and kept it free from error. I wish that all the error finders and the Greek scholars would use only the 200 other translations and stay away from the KJV, but alas they try to corrupt the oracles of God also. I don’t pay any attention to anyone who doesn’t speak as the oracles of God. If you ‘are’ the oracle of God because you have been born again, then you know which Bible ‘is’ the oracles of God. King James Bible believers have the oracles of God, whether Bible error finders can find the originals or not.

 

   “Our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us…” – (Acts 7:38). The Jews had the ‘living’ oracles of God in the O.T. and we have them in the N.T. also; the oracles are passed on to later generations. “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” – (I Pet.1:23). The corruptible seed of corrections, revisions, and versions cannot give new spiritual life. We are born again by hearing the incorruptible, living oracles of God. And one of the most corrupt and deceiving Bible versions is the ‘Living Bible’ which is trying to get unsaved people to understand the Bible. Only those who have been born again of the Holy Spirit can understand the Bible. The ‘Living Bible’ is as dead as the unsaved person who reads it. They make millions of dollars on new Bible versions: it’s very profitable to them, but it’s not “profitable for doctrine” – (2 Tim.3:16).

 

   Get born again through Christ and stay with the KJ oracles of God. Stay with the Bible believers and not the Bible correctors and error finders. Stay with the ‘thus sayeth the Lord’ people of God. Don’t be deceived. When you are born again and become the oracle of God, then you will be able to discern the true written oracles of God to speak – then you will speak as the oracles of God.

 

   O we need to speak as the oracles of God. We must be Spirit-filled believers preaching and teaching the KJ Bible with Holy Spirit illumination and divine authority. We are to speak forth the Word of God with the very unction of the Holy Spirit because we are proclaiming the inerrant, infallible, preserved Word of God. The prophets were the oracles of God that gave us the oracles of the holy scripture. Every word that they spoke in the Bible was as God’s mouthpieces. “…… holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” – (2 Pet.1:21). But no Christian or Christian leader speaks as the oracle of God when he speaks any words other than KJ Bible words. We are not infallible in our doctrine or teachings. We make mistakes when we speak our own words.

 

   David had a man in his cabinet who supposedly spoke like that. His name was Ahithophel and he deserted David’s cause and went over to Absalom’s side when Absalom tried to usurp David’s throne. Ahithophel’s spoken word was famous – “The counsel of Ahithophel, which he counseled in those days, was as if a man had inquired at the oracle of God: so was all the counsel of Ahithophel both with David and with Absalom” – (2 Sam.16:23).

 

   It seems that Ahithophel was a politician noted for his great oratory and this supposedly came from God. David mistakenly regarded him as an oracle of God but it was worldly wisdom and devilish. “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish” – (Jam.3:15). Ahithophel, who was supposed to be an oracle of God, very unwisely took part with Absalom, who was a usurper and a rash youth, not likely to come to good, which any man having the wisdom of God, should have been able to foresee. Ahithophel had demonic wisdom and gave wicked counsel to Absalom and showed his true colors. He proved himself to be rather an oracle of Satan than of God. He ended up committing suicide and hanging himself like Judas who was possessed by Satan and betrayed the greater Son of David. The Devil has many oracles and the most famous was the oracle of Delphi.

 

   Another politician in the N.T. similar to Ahithophel was King Herod. “And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost” – (Acts:12:21,23). Don’t be deceived by politicians who are great orators like Hitler and prove to be demonic. Soon, when the Lord Jesus returns as King of Kings, all of us saints who are the true oracles of God, will rule and reign on this earth beneath Christ forever.

 

   Have you been born again of the Holy Spirit and become a new creature in Christ? If not, repent of your sins, and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and you will be baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ. Your body will become the temple of God, God’s dwelling place on earth. You will be the oracle of God, because the third person of God, the Holy Spirit dwells in you. You will conquer your death and receive eternal life – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” – (Jn.3:16). Be truly saved and study only the KJ Bible which is the written oracles of God and when you speak from the Book you will be the oracle of God. Jesus Christ is the oracle of God and you can be also by becoming a part of His body and as you quote the KJ Bible.
