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 10:27 NKJV
The LORD GOD speaks a word of assurance to His people during a time of oppression and bondage brought on by the Assyrians. The promise to His people is that the burden will be taken from their shoulder, and the yoke of their enemy from their neck. This time of domination and captivity was prophesied to come to an end, because of the anointing oil. Not only was the yoke to be removed on that day, it was to be destroyed. Never to be used against the people of God again.
Since the yoke was destroyed and the burden was taken away, but not destroyed. What does this mean prophetically for the people of God, including the New Testament Church? Well the burden , which deals with everything from bearing a heavy load to paying tribute (taxes) has been addressed by the Lord Jesus Christ. In Matthew 11:28-30; Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Praise God that both the burden and the yoke is dealt with in the person of Jesus Christ. The anointing oil is rich, powerful and abundant in Him. John tells us — For He whom God has sent utters the words of God, for He gives the Spirit without measure. John 3:34 ESV
Because Jesus was given the Spirit without measure, the oil in His vessel never runs out, and is available to you and me as long as we live. We can boldly proclaim as David did in Psalm 92:10, that we shall be anointed with fresh oil. But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil. Confess with your mouth today — I have been anointed with fresh oil. Let every burden be lifted and yokes be destroyed because of the anointing on your life today.
The anointing oil covers us from the inside out by the Spirit that is poured into and upon the people of God. I beg you today to stand fast in the liberty where Christ has made you free, and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Receive the word of God that has come to you today — 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 10:27 NKJV
This is that day for the word to come to pass for you. Your horn (or strength) is being exalted so that you can bear the load of a wild ox; you have been anointed with fresh oil by the entrance of His word, that is Spirit and life. Yokes be destroyed and burdens be lifted today. It is so, and so it is, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
