THE YOKE AND THE ANOINTING

‘And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.’ – Isaiah 10 vs 27

Hello Dearly Beloved in the LORD Jesus, this is not a new teaching, but that which you have known already. This is to put you in Remembrance of the awesome Grace you have received of the Lord Jesus. Read and be Blessed.

There are two (2) statements underlined in our opening scripture, the first is ‘in that day’, and the second is ‘the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing’. What day was the Prophet speaking about? He was Prophesying concerning the days of  Jesus Christ, our day, the days of the Spirit of liberty. He says, in those days, the burden, the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. Firstly, what burden? What yoke shall be destroyed? The yoke there is the Law. Now, I want you to understand that the burden is not the same as the yoke. He says the burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, while the yoke from off thy neck. Get this, the yoke is what inflicts burden. It’s just like lifting a heavy weight, by reason of your lifting the heavy weight, you become burdened with pain; because if you had not lifted the weight, you wouldn’t have been in pain. – Selah. So it is in this case, because the yoke is placed on the neck, the pain (burden) is felt on the shoulder. You get me? Okay.

Now the yoke is the Law, the burden is the Guilt!

‘They make hard laws and put great weights on men's backs; but they themselves will not put a finger to them.’ – Matthew 23 vs 4 {BBE}

Here we clearly see that the yoke is the law, which men had to carry. The KJV of that Bible verse tells us that they are grievous to be borne. You see? Trying to obey God’s Laws perfectly is like trying to jump to touch the roof of a 7 Story Building. – Selah

Now let’s see this;

‘Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.’ – Romans 3 vs 19 {KJV}

You see that? That all the world may become guilty before God. Waow! So we see that the Law (Yoke) brings about Guilt (Burden). Why? Seeing that you always fall short of God’s Righteous Commandments, your heart and conscience becomes guilty and condemned before God.

But what good stuff do we have? What lively hope have we got? That yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. Obviously, if the yoke is destroyed, then the burden is destroyed as well. And you know what? The anointing there as used is translated from the Hebrew word <shemen>, and shemen simply means Fatness. And this anointing as used there is pointed to the Messiah. The Prophet is telling us that when the Messiah comes, His fat anointing will swallow up the yoke. In other words, when a man comes to the Messiah, no matter how much burden (guilt) the yoke (Law) has inflicted on him, it is swallowed up. Waow!

Brother, Sister, be encouraged, the day you came to Christ, the authority of the Law over you was withheld. Look at it, it says that the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. The Hebrew word for destroyed as used there is , and chabal means to withhold. You see? So when you come to the Messiah, the authority of the Law is withheld over you. You’re no longer subject to it, hence, you can’t be held for breaking it. How can you be convicted over what you are not subject to? Listen child of God, as Believers we are not convicted of sin because we broke the Law, what Law? We are given no Law! {1 Timothy 1 vs 9}. But we are convicted of sin because we didn’t yield to the leading of the Spirit. And when we are convicted, we are not in the danger of Hell, no! You know why? Because we have received eternal forgiveness! {Hebrews 10 vs 14}. But when we are convicted, we corrected for the perfection of our walk on Earth as the Awesome Sons and Daughters of God. O Hallelujah!

So, the Law has been withheld, hence, the Law can’t condemn you anymore, because it’s existence over you has been terminated. The Law only has right over the unbelievers in other to continuously reveal to them how worthless, useless, ineffective, weak and sinful they are, thereby pointing them to their Saviour Jesus, who has Justified them, and freed them from the Law and it's burden only when theY Believe! – Selah

God Bless You.
