It’s time for the yokes to come off — you have out grown them!!
As I was meditating upon the LORD, He begin to speak to me, how that things that use to bother me, don’t, and won’t get under my skin and frustrate me like it use to do, and how it will no longer be a factor, because the anointing that the LORD has placed upon me as well as others, will be replaced with a deep anointing in Him!
A yoke is a wooden crosspiece that is fastened over the necks of two animals and attached to the plow or cart that they are to pull.
He said to me and gave me this portion of scripture;
“and it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing,” Isaiah 10:27.
The LORD said to me that many times we go through trials and test, some from our own doing and some because of the enemy!
But, when you know that it is not because of anything you yourself have done, you can rejoice!
Isaiah describes this burden as something, that is heavy and gruesome upon your neck and shoulders that is hard, that is causing one distress and lots of frustration, but he goes so far as to let us know that it is coming off!
Why? Because, it is not wanted or desired and because of the anointing the LORD is going to place upon you!
And, he goes on to say in so many words, it is like an ox whose neck has out-grown a yoke that has been put on his neck to do a work for His master, and now he needs a greater harness, because the ox neck has evidently out grown the yoke he now has.
In other words, a greater anointing will flow under this yoke because this ox has graduated from this yoke into a deeper level of anointing!
This is just as Jesus did, when He was in the wilderness with John the Baptist before His great announcement got ready to take place! This is in comparison to the seven spirits:
The seven Spirits or eyes that Zachariah saw on the “Branch” (which is Jesus) are found in Isaiah 11.
“And there shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots,” Isaiah 11:1.
What transformation Jesus experienced. He went from the womb, to a man and then to the Son of God to the tomb and rose again!
But, not without a price: as we will, who are sent as oxen to bear His yoke!
These seven spirits or seven mantles, are the seven expressions of the one Holy Spirit in which Jesus operated during His earthly ministry.
“The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD,” Isaiah 11:2.
I asked the LORD regarding these yokes and anointing and He began to reveal to me that the time has come for some to experience a greater anointing as Christ did.
“And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway He coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him: and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Not only did John announce Christ, but so did heave,n my friends!
“And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness,” Mark 1:9-12 KJV.
I believe in this season, the LORD Is saying that not only will man announce His ox but so will heaven in this season!
I believe the apostles are coming forth with both demonstrations, signs, wonders and in power in this season to do a mighty work for the LORD.
Not only will they do this work, but the same burdens which are broken off their necks, will come off the shoulders of the people in this season!
Like Christ, both signs and wonders are going to follow them in this season!
We know after hearing the voice of the Father; Jesus was ushered into the wilderness where He would be tried, tested and tempted by the devil!
Just as we are when we go through much tribulations! And, like the oxens’ yokes that have been placed upon them to keep them from going through, those tests are going to be broken and destroy in the lives of others!
For these yoke were ultimately placed upon the Ox to keep them from going out of the way (remain obedient) as God uses them to plow, and plant much in His divine Kingdom!
But yet Christ endured the cross despising the shame and embarrassment of His enemies to the end!
The Bible tells us that the Spirit was given to Jesus without measure; unlike His apostles but yet they were given it by measure to do the same works He did and even greater.
For, the Bible says, “He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without measure to Him. For, the Father loves the Son, and has placed all things into His hand,” John 3:34-35.
Jesus moved in the “Spirit of Wisdom and Knowledge” or the “Mantle of Wisdom and Knowledge.”
Isaiah 61 says,
“The Spirit of the LORD God is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations,” Isaiah 61:2-4 KJV.
Jesus received the Spirit in fullness and He was called to live in a place of perpetual flow of the Holy Spirit.
Not only that, but Jesus healed all men and it was because He operated in the seven spirits of the LORD.
“And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him,” Mark 1:13 KJV.
Get ready the yokes are coming off and greater is coming!
