Where No Oxen Are…


Where no oxen are, the trough (crib) is clean,
But much increase comes by the strength of an oxen
Proverbs 14:4

And I asked the Lord, “What are you saying here?”
And I heard the Lord say the following.

“No Pain – No Gain

No Stirring up – No Cleansing

No Sorrow – No Glory

No War – No Victory

No Death – No Resurrection”


My belief of what the Spirit was saying:

Through Pain & suffering, we would Gain His Likeness.

Through the Stirring up of The Law, we have Cleansing through His Blood.

Through the Sorrows of this world, we would see His Glory made manifest in us.

Through War that the enemy brings upon us, we would be more than conquerors
(Victorious) through Him who loved us. Rom 8:37

Through death, “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death,
certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. Rom 6:5.
