The Anointing

By Reverend Dolapo Olunuga

Bible Text: “It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder… and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” Isaiah 10:27

Hosea 10:12 – “Sow for yourselves righteousness… break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

Isaiah 10:27 – “It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder… and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.”

What weight are you carrying? What is holding you down? What is limiting you from experiencing the power of God?

What is “yoke”?

To join together, harness (in order to control), to pull down, to hold under subjection, satanic bondage

In farming, oxen, cattle, cows, etc. are yoked together by the farmer.

Vs. 27 – “The yoke shall be destroyed.”

Anything that is controlling you and that is not of God is a yoke.

Isaiah 59:19 – “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”

Matthew 11:29 – “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. My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Jesus has gone to the cross and overcome. What He has done requires that we enforce the finished work of the cross in our lives.

Vs. 28 – “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden…”

Acts 10:38 – “God anointed Jesus… with the Holy Spirit… who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed…”

Mark 5:21-2 – “Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.”

This man’s story reminds us to always look unto Jesus, from whom our help comes from

Vs. 27 – “When she heard about Jesus…” At this point, her faith was being built up.

Vs. 28 – “For she said, ‘If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.’”

What are you saying? What is your confession? Are you confessing victory or defeat over your life?

Hebrews 12:2 – “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” We must make Him our focus. Jesus “initiates and perfects” our faith.

James 5:13-15 – “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”
