Prophetic Song of the Spirit."

"Muzzling the Ox, Part 3"

by John & Kelly Sielski


"Ox": True Five-Fold Ministry...

Proverbs 14: 3-5 (KJV)

3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: 
but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)

4 Thou shalt not muzzle 
the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

1 Corinthians 9: 7-16 (KJV)

7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law [*the Law is spiritual, if viewed with the Spiritual Mind] the same also?
For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, 
is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things [*money... finances... are carnal things!]?
12 If others be partakers of this power over you [*in Corinth, they most definitely were!]
are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used[*"abused"] this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
But I have used [*"abused"] none of these thingsneither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.  [*PAUL'S SARCASM ~ IF PAUL WERE TO DIE, THEN WHO WOULD BE ABLE TO HEAR THE GOSPEL COMMITTED UNTO HIM?]
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity [*SPIRIT-EMPOWERED COMPULSION] is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!  [*NOTE: THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE THE CORINTHIANS' TREATMENT OF PAUL... WHICH INCLUDED NEXT TO (ABSOLUTELY) NO FINANCIAL SUPPORT!!] 

1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (KJV)

17 Let 
the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith [*DEUTERONOMY 25: 4, ABOVE], 
thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
