The 153 Words of God

His Word: Ox (or Bull)

Leave a comment

An “Ox” (or Bull) is symbolic of a Shepherd (Teacher) of the Lord’s Holy Words and Ways

ox

In the Bible the “Ox” is symbolic of a teacher of the Lord’s Holy Words. “Treading out the grain” is symbolic of teaching His Words since grain is used to make bread. Remember that “bread” is symbolic of instruction of His Words and Jesus fed people bread and broke bread with them to enable the Holy Spirit to make the people to desire instruction of His Holy Words.

Muzzle an OX” is symbolic of blocking the Teacher from teaching His Words to the people.

Here are a few example verses. Notice the symbolism:

Deuteronomy 25:4
“You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.

1st Corinthians 9:9-12
9 For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it oxen God is concerned about? 10 Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11 If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it a great thing if we reap your material things? 12 If others are partakers of this right over you, are we not even more?

1 Timothy 5:18
For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”

Hamstrung an OX” is symbolic of stopping someone from teaching His Words to the people. This is what many people are doing today. The Lord wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Words like: Blood, Bread, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gather, Milk, Mountain, Oil, Seed, Stand, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, etc.

Genesis 49:5-6
5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers; Instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling place. 6 Let not my soul enter their council; Let not my honor be united to their assembly; For in their anger they slew a man, And in their self-will they hamstrung an ox.
