Jesus Breaks The Yoke
By the anointing Jesus breaks the yoke,
By the Holy Ghost in power, just as the prophet spoke.
This is the day of the latter rain,
God is moving in power again.
By the anointing He breaks the yoke
Lines from a popular Gospel song
The lines from this Christian song have been going through my head a lot lately, and of course having sung this many times over the years, I know where it comes from, don’t I? Well, I realised straight away that I had no idea about it, and decided to search it out, using the clue that it was ‘just as the prophet spoke’. Fortunately, it seems only one prophet mentions the anointing - at least in my Bible - and that was Isaiah, in this passage in chapter 10 ...
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts: "O My people, who dwell in Zion, do not be afraid of the Assyrian. He shall strike you with a rod and lift up his staff against you, in the manner of Egypt.
For yet a very little while and the indignation will cease, as will My anger in their destruction." And the LORD of hosts will stir up a scourge for him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; as His rod was on the sea, so will He lift it up in the manner of Egypt.
It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.
[Isaiah 10:24-27 NKJV]
This is a beautiful promise. In that day, which since Jesus came is now this day, the Lord will remove the burden from our shoulders, take the yoke upon Himself because of the anointing oil - the Holy Spirit. Chist is ‘The Anointed One’ and on His shoulders is the government [Isaiah 9:6] and He has said ”For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

“Why does God bring thunderclouds and disasters, when we want green pastures and still waters?”
Bit by bit we find, behind the clouds, the Father’s feet; behind the lightning, an abiding day that has no night; behind the thunder, “a still small voice” that comforts with a comfort that is unspeakable.
