|Oracles of Deliverance Church was founded upon the principles of Christianity and is established for the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to the King James' version of the Holy Scriptures. This ministry does not have ceremonial joining nor membership. Believers voluntarily conform to the teachings of the Holy Scriptures administered by the Reverend Marilyn Thomas. Fasting and Divine Healing are virtues of Faith associated with Christianity. No one is compelled to adhere to them. Only those who are of legal age and are both willing and able, follow these principles.|
|We believe that women must not wear pants, but adorn themselves as women professing godliness with long dresses and sleeves. The scriptures says, 1 Timothy 2:9-10: “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.” Women who profess godliness wear long dresses, long sleeves, stockings, and shoes to cover themselves. We also cover our heads with hats. 1 Corinthians 11:5: “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.”|
|We believe that the bible is the inspired word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."|
|We believe that repentance is the first grace of God given to a sinner for forgiveness of sin. Jesus said, St. Mark 1:15: ". . . The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."
||We believe in Spiritual and Natural Baptism. Acts 1:5: "For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence."||We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin.
St. Matthew 1:23: "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."
||We believe that the true church is the bride of Jesus Christ. Revelation 21:9 ". . . I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife." Jesus said, St. Matthew 25:10: ". . . the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage . . ." Revelation 21:2: "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."||
We believe that Holiness is the Divine high standard for the True Church by which we receive everlasting life.
God said to Isaiah concerning the high standard of holy people of all eras. Isaiah 13:3: "I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness." The world hates Jesus and the high standard of the True Church who lives the Holy Life. St. John 15:18: "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." |
Ephesians 5:27: "That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish." Hebrews 12:14: ". . . holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord."
|We believe that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural power in which we are prepared for Divine service. Jesus declared,
Acts 1:8: "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
Paul proclaimed, Romans 12:1: "I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."
||We believe that anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ is not part of the True Church and will not receive eternal life.
Romans 8:9: ". . . if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." St. John 20:21-22: "Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost."
||We believe that Divine healing was provided in the atoning sacrificial offering of the body of Christ. Isaiah 53:5: "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
||We also believe that through Divine guidance, Physicians can be instrumental in the physical healing of those who have faith in God. St. Luke 5:31 ". . . Jesus . . . said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick." Colossians 4:14 "Luke, the beloved physician . . . greet you."
||We believe in everlasting punishment to those who do not repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Revelation 20:10: "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."||We believe that eternal life will be given to those who obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Revelation 21:24: "And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it . . . ." Verse 27: "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."||We believe in Spiritual Resurrection from. the dead works of sin. Ephesians 2:1: "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins."||We believe in the Final Resurrection of the dead for the godly and ungodly. 2 Corinthians 5:10: "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." ||We believe in Divine punishment for sinners who do not repent. Jesus said, St. Luke 13:3: " . . . except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Revelation 21:8: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Jesus declared, St. Matthew 25:41: " . . . Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels."||We believe that Tithing is a fundamental part of the Christian Faith in all eras. Malachi 3:10 "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
"||We believe that the Anointing is a special spiritual gift from God to consecrate men, women, and children for the service of God. God does not send those who have not been anointed! Jesus said, St. Luke 4:18-19: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord." Acts 2:17-18: "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy."|
