I Corinthians 2:4 “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”
It can be very confusing reading what all the “prophets” are saying that the Lord is speaking. Whether well-known or unknown, everyone has something to say about the times we live in. To the everyday reader, it can be confusing for many words are contradicting one another. One example is the barrage of voices that spoke as it pertained to God’s view on the Supreme Court decision about marriage and the definition there of in the United States. Some said, God is confirming His judgment on the United States, others said, Love Wins. For people that do not know their Bible and only trust what a Pastor, leader or some blogger says, many are not sure what to believe.
One does not have to spend much time on Facebook to realize that everyone has a thought, a word, or some teaching. The increase of knowledge and the number of orators has drastically increased with the use of social media and just adds to the confusion, rather than making it clearer. If you are not reading your Bible, you will not know the truth that will set you free (John 8:32). People, sincere people, are acting more like orators than they are actually presenting oracles. From the White House to the Church House, we have people who have a lot to say, but very few who are actually making a difference. But, God is raising up men and women, sons and daughters, who are orators with an oracle.
Martin Luther King Jr. was an orator and he spoke oracles, which is why he is remembered as a national hero.
Abraham Lincoln was an orator and he spoke oracles, which is why his speeches are quoted throughout the world.
Nelson Mandela was an orator who spoke oracles and changed the nation of which God placed him in.
Orators who have oracles may not say the most, but when they speak their words carry authority. They may not be in the most popular magazines, named as People’s person of the year, or may not even have the largest church, but when they speak, atmospheres change, nations are transformed and people are liberated. Orators who speak oracles do it for the liberty of others, not for their own glory or fame. The Church is filled with thousands of orators, but very few people are actually speaking oracles, this is why there is so little transformation in people’s lives.
Orators may speak persuasively, draw a crowd, have a great personality and sound like they have the message of the hour, but only oracles can transform a life. The Bible is filled with oracles that will change your life if you are willing to submit to its words. The apostle Paul was one who spoke oracles, Peter uttered oracles, John wrote oracles and the governing rulers of their day said, these men who have turned the world upside down, have come here also. What are you acting like, an orator or one who speaks oracles? Our world needs to hear oracles, not more orators.
