“You cannot yoke together an ox and ass; the ox will strain to pull forward, and the ass will resist and sit; You will get nowhere,” ~ Sherry Edwards Mackey.
“Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together,” Deuteronomy 22:10 KJV.
“Be not unequally yoked in relationships! Be yoked to Me, for My Yoke is easy My Burden is light.
There are many tears and resources spent over relational Ishmael’s that just won’t work, no matter how hard you try. What of ministry Ishmael’s?
No matter how much you wanted it to live, that ministry and those involved, how long must you strive to make it live when is twice dead and dried up at the roots?
You paint it! You put pictures everywhere! You are trying to make it look alive to the point of self-delusion, and you love it so. But you cannot go any further until you bury the dead!
No matter how desperate to decorate, using paint to hide; like potted plants root bound and plucked up by the roots; temporal time cannot stop the stench of spiritual leprosy that permeates through white washed walls.
When will you finally bury the dead? Why do you continue to swat away at the varied attempts of long ago keeping you stuck and bound in a time warp?
Like Rizpah kept swatting to keep the buzzards away from her dead sons; she was determined to remain there while they hung there dead.
How many have tried to revive a root bound, dead, dried up vision of long ago?
You have so identified with what was, that you cannot relate to your future, so you go no further. You must release it and let it go!
I speak this to My people and spiritual houses that will not repent. Repent and release your past so you can be free!
Put to death what has kept you bound!
I AM not leading you to give CPR to your dead vision. For a new beginning awaits once you take inventory and give it all away.
It will be you and I, and I will make all things new. For I have long waited in keeping My best for you,” says the LORD!
Please Study 2 Samuel 21.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
