                                                       HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTS:

                             THE YOKE IS BROKEN

                                          By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

  “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10: 27)

In this Scripture Isaiah conveys a prophetic truth concerning the coming of the Messiah and the liberation of His people from the powers of darkness, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The yoke of sin, fear, condemnation, torment, sickness, and disease is broken when the Holy Spirit takes control of our lives!

The Bible states: “But unto the Son He saith...Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.” (Heb.1: 8.9). The prophet Zechariah delivers the same message of the workings of the Holy Spirit of God: “...Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Zech. 4; 6)

The YOKE of Satanic Bondage is removed from our neck and the burden off our shoulder by the Blood of Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit. The YOKE of fear, torment, guilt, condemnation, pain, disease, and unrest is broken because of the anointing of God the Holy Spirit!

Jesus Christ said: “Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you Free.” (John 8:32). Jesus Christ Himself is the Truth and He is within us, therefore He makes us Free! He declared: “If the SON therefore shall make you Free, ye shall be Free indeed.” (John 8: 36)

I am therefore healed by the Person of Jesus Christ Himself. I am saved, forgiven, freed and liberated from Sin, Fear, Sickness and Disease by the WORD Himself, who is Very GOD!

The Holy Scriptures declare: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was Life and the Life was the Life of men.

“He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father full of grace and truth.” (John 1: 1-4,10, 14)

The Holy Bible is the written Word of God and Jesus Himself is the Living WORD of God! He gives us the assurance: “Let your conversation be without covetousness, and be content with such things as ye have: for He (JESUS) hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE.” (Heb.13:5)

Here, Jesus used a double imperative. He actually said, “I will never, no never leave thee. I will never, no never forsake thee.” St. Matthew records our Master: “...and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world (age).” (Matt. 28: 20)

The term always is a measure of time and the word alway is a measure of distance. Jesus promised to go the distance with us, all the way until we meet him face to face!

An old Sunday school chorus says, 'With Jesus in the vessel, we can smile at the storm, smile at the storm, smile at the storm. With Jesus in the vessel. We can smile at the storm, until He calls us Home.'

And that is abundantly true. Whatever enemy we face, we will overcome. We have ultimate peace, assurance, and victory through the BLOOD of the Everlasting Covenant, the Eternal Word of God, the Blessed Holy Spirit, and the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ.

He, who is the Liberator of lost humanity, the Emancipator of mankind, the Saviour of the world and the Great Physician, has already won the Battle for us!

We are fully armed with the precious promises of God, the Sword of the Spirit, purged by the Blood of the Lamb and endued with the Power and presence of the Holy Spirit and hidden with Christ in God the Father Almighty, one true God, world without end!

The Bible says: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord.” (Is.54: 17)


The Holy Spirit's anointing destroys the YOKE. He equips us with the anointing of God that breaks the yoke of Satanic power and bondage and frees us to live in victory to serve the Lord with gladness and fruitfulness!

The Bible states: “But we have an UNCTION from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” (1 John 2:20). “Now He which established with you in Christ and hath anointed us with you is God.” (2 Cor. 1: 21)

“And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning FALL from Heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10: 18, 19)

I stand foursquare on God's Word and the Promises of Jesus Christ! He said: “Come unto Me all ye who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matt. 11:28-30)

Satan's yoke is heavy. It is hard to bear and takes his slave to eternal death. He promises an exciting time with no strings attached, but he is a Deceiver and a Liar. Satan enslaves those who follow his pernicious ways, leading them to destruction and Hell.

Christ's yoke is different. He carries the heavy load. His yoke frees us to live a life of righteousness, peace, and joy. He shatters sinful habits, destroys sickness, and disease and ultimately carries us to be with Him in His glory!

He is the Heavy Lifter, who bore our sins and sicknesses to the Cross. He carried our pains, fears, and sorrows to Golgotha where He made the supreme sacrifice for us all. He met the Demands of Divine Justice in payment for our eternal salvation, through His vicarious (substitutionary) death for us!

The Holy Bible states: “Surely He hath borne our sicknesses (heb. makob) and carried our pains (heb. nasa): yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.

“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid upon Him the iniquity of us all.” (Is. 53: 4-6)

When Jesus cried: “It is finished”, He had purchased our salvation from sin, fear, sickness, disease, and death. (John 19: 30). St. Paul declared: “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom. 5: 6, 7)

“But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead, shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” (Rom. 8: 11)

The Bible teaches that, “God hath delivered us from the power of Darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son: In Whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” (Col. 1: 13, 14).


 As He had promised, Jesus sent the Blessed Holy Spirit upon His disciples on the Day of Pentecost and His Church was born in fire and great power: 

“And when the Day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a mighty rushing wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave utterance.” (Acts 2: 1-4)

Through His vicarious death for us all and His glorious resurrection from the dead, Jesus totally defeated Satan and the kingdom of Darkness. By His precious Blood, our Saviour has purchased all mankind for Himself and has given His church authority to take His Gospel to all who will believe on His name and repent of their sins.

Here is His great commission: “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe;

“In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall

The Church was born on the Day of Pentecost and ever continues in His Name to carry out the mandate given us by our Lord Jesus Christ. Here is the example set by Christ's early followers: “And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with SIGNS following. Amen.” (Mark 16: 20)


The Bible states: “And being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

“For John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence… But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost has come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:4,8)

Dear Lord Jesus, fill Your servants who proclaim Your Gospel, with the Blessed Holy Spirit and power to liberate lost, sick and suffering humanity for Thy glory and honour. Amen.
