What is the Oracle?

I’ve created a new blog, sister to Ufuomaee called ‘The Oracle’.  It contains short inspirational messages for a daily walk with God, personally received.  The word ‘oracle’ may be controversial to some, so I sought to explain the basis of the terminology here.  You may also check out the definition of an oracle by Merriam-Webster.

My understanding is drawn from Peter’s letter to the Christians in his time, when he exhorted the believers that: “If any man speak, [let him speak] as the oracles of God; if any man minister, [let him do it] as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever…” (1 Peter 4:11).  We need not receive any additional call to live as ministers or speak by the power of God.  It is there for us, as plain as the gift of salvation.  For those who exercise their faith to receive the gift, they become the vessels that God uses to share His Word abroad.

For the sake of accountability, I choose to limit the posts I publish under ‘The Oracle’, because there is much weight in anything attributed to be ‘inspired’ by God.  Only when I feel a burden from God to share a new truth He has revealed to me, will I write in ‘The Oracle’.  They are inspired writings, never infallable.  Please feel free to challenge the things I say if you feel they are unscriptural.  Also, remember that if you are in His family, you are called into priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) and He can speak directly to you too.  So open that channel of communication, and be a voice in the world.
