What are the Oracles of God? (Part II)

What are the components of the Oracles?

What are the Oracles of God? (Part II)

One minister says “the Bible doesn’t require extra-biblical interpretation and support.”

Is this true? Is it true we don’t need any extra-biblical interpretation to understand the true meaning of the Scriptures?

This is an unorthodox approach to studying the Oracles of God. But first, we ask what are the components of the Oracles?

For a change, we will start by reading just a portion of a chapter in the Bible that we are all familiar with  — Genesis 1 (21st Century King James Version).

And we’ll try to read it without the vowels. It’s possible, let’s try:

Gnss 1:1-10 (21st Cntry Kng Jms Vrsn)

nd th rth ws wtht frm nd vd, nd drknss ws pn th fc f th dp. nd th Sprt

In the beginning of God’s creation of the heavens and the earth.

Hebrew text with vowels
בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ
Hebrew text without vowels

Below is the same Genesis 1:1-10 — without vowels, without spaces and punctuations.

DREAM ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD (BIBLE) - Evangelist Joshua Orekhie
“For there shall arise false christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” Matthew 24:24

Below is the same Genesis 1:1-10. And this is how Moses wrote the Torah — without vowels, spaces, punctuations, capitalization nor paragraph breaks.

So when it is written that Moses wrote all the words of the LORD as stated in Exodus 24:4, his written texts (except of course, he wrote from right to left in paleo Hebrew scripts instead of the modern ‘square’ alphabets) were only making sense to himself, but to an outsider, they were just unreadable.  [Note: this Bible study is greatly simplified as cantillation and other numerous peculiar details of the Sacred Text are not discussed here]

For well over two thousand years until the appearance of the Aleppo Codex in the tenth Century, scribes, priests and Levites with the Scriptures would have to memorise where the vowels and other punctuations were located so that the Scriptures would make sense to those who hear them.

The vast majority, which would exceed 99.99 percent of today’s professing Christianity, make this fundamental error. This porous foundation differs greatly from the original Nazarenes where they understood what the Oracles as given to the Jews (Romans 3:1-4) would mean. Unless trained in Judaism, they wouldn’t be able to read the Sacred Text, which only had consonants written. This means our modern version of Christianity is basically built on sands, loose sands.

The written Torah, when originally written, were just the consonants but the Oral Knowledge were memorised. Torah means instructions, teachings and knowledge, and these accumulated knowledge is known as the Oral Law and is not necessarily the legalistic concept of law we know today.

What does this “nthbgnnnggdcrtdthhvnndthrth” mean? A learned scribe would know it was “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” by adding his Oral Torah to make the meaning clear. Thus when the Aleppo Codex was written in the tenth century, vowels were embedded. For the Hebrew Sacred text to be readable by the common people, it also means that the Oral Law were intrinsically embedded into the Written Torah.

Many hundred years later, in 1611, the English King James version of the Bible arrived. And like it or not, it had similarly incorporated the Oral Torah with the written Torah. For the churches to say that our Scriptures are the written Word of God and we don’t need the Oral Torah is just misguided, deceived. And being puffed up and deceived they go about deceiving others. 

“For I know this: that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock” Acts 20:29.

The first Church after the apostolic age was the Roman Catholics and they are the most populous today. Others in the West, many sprang from the British Isles or the United States. Such deceptions are so deeply embedded and entrenched that this truth would sound strange, unorthodox and foreign.

What are the Oracles of God? (Part I)

“Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit” Hosea 11:12 

Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh; and they together shall be against Judah. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still” Isaiah 9:21
