daily bread

Isaiah 10:27 - And it shall come to pass in that day that his oppression
shall be taken off your shoulders, and his yoke from off your neck; for
the yoke shall be destroyed before the oil.

The yoke shall be broken because of the anointing! There is a special
phrase used here that is not found anywhere else in the Hebrew bible,
which is literally translated "before the oil." The imagery is that of
one who is being anointed. As the anointing oil is being applied, the
oppressor and his yoke are destroyed. It is because of the activity of
the Spirit of God that the yokes of foreign oppressors have been broken.
When Israel was a slave to Egypt, God placed His anointing on a man
named Moses to bring deliverance to the captives; and break the
strongholds of oppression. The book of Judges is filled will these kinds
of men: such as Gideon, Barak, Samson, and Jephthah.

What each of us must realize that it is only by the special anointing of
God's power that oppression and bondage are destroyed. If we are going
to function in the divine power of the anointing that has been supplied
to us today - in the greatest of all Anointed Ones: Jesus Christ - then
we are going to have to learn to both yield to and come under the
influence of the Spirit of God that has been given to us. It does not
matter what the opposition may be, whether doubt and unbelief or sin
sickness and disease; the oppression and yoke are only broken by the
anointing. The people of God must come to realize that they need to be
trained by the Holy Spirit to walk in such an anointing (1 Corinthians
2:1-5; 1 Corinthians 4:20; 1 Thessalonians 1:5; Ephesians 3:16;
Ephesians 4:12; Romans 15:19). It is essential that God's people become
involved with a church, and ministers who are themselves full of the
Spirit; so that the yoke-destroying anointing of Jesus Christ might
become effective in their lives.
