TEXT: MATHEW 11:28-30
There is only one person who can break the yoke and remove the burden- Jehovah God.In Matthew 11:28-30, “come unto me all ye that 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 unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light,” We learn some lessons from these verses:
- There are people who are labouring under demonic bondage,
- There are those who are carrying heavy burdens.
- There are those who have the yoke of the enemy upon their necks.
- The Lord is the only remover of burdens, breaker of yokes and giver of rest
- When He is finished removing the burdens and breaking the yokes, He places his yoke and his burden upon you.
- His own yoke is easy and His burden is light.
Sometimes ago, I was shown in a vision a sorry state of the people of Kenya, carrying all manners of loads and yokes. If you don’t have the burdens and yoke of Jesus Christ you will carry the devil’s own. There is no neutral position. Your destiny must cooperate with your creator for peace.
The Bible makes it very clear that you can carry a load that is not yours. Determine that you will not carry a load that is not yours in Jesus Name.
Let us see :-
I. HOW AN EVIL PROPERTY (LOAD)IS ACQUIRED
- You can buy it:-some people buy their bondage and put it on.
- You can borrow it:-some people borrow bondage and put it on.
- You can steal it:-people steal bondage and put it on.
- You can inherit it: People inherit bondage and put it on
- You can receive it as a gift:-people adore of evil free gifts and then trouble starts
- You can welcome it in your own house, business etc.
à Satan is always throwing troubles around.A person may refuse to partake or may decide to partake in it (Psalm 91:5-6)
à There are many people who are carrying evil loads that do not belong to them.
à You must force owners of evil loads to carry them. “Every owner of evil load, carry your load in the Name of Jesus”
The following are some of the techniques Satan uses;
- Bad confession-immediately you say “I am sick” the devil stamps sickness on you, The devil is a bad postmaster.
- Twelve spies were sent to spy the promised land (Num. 14:28).
- Once you start saying “ I shall not die but live to declare the works of God “ you remain alive.
- The power of mouth confession is real to life (Rom. 10:8-9)
- Provoking God:-Don’t be instigated to provoke the Angels of God (Matt. 18:10). Angels can be provoked.
- Angels can be provoked (Ex. 23:20-21) Angels don’t forgive.
- Lots wife provoked the Angels, Zachariah the father of John the Baptist provoked Angel Gabriel
- Zachariah carried the load of dumbness
- Foolish curiosity– The Philistines looked into the Ark of the Lord.Believers should not watch magicians, juju (charm) and false prophets.
- Fighting alone when you know your strength is small.
- there is time to take over and there is time to take cover.
- Moses wanted to take over when he actually needed to take cover.
- Don’t follow anybody to idol worship or to Necromancers.Y ou are to be careful not to watch some films.
- Evil friends-people pick up evil luggage by following evil friends
- Dreams-many unwanted loads are transferred through dreams. People get fed with all kinds of food in the dreams and when they wake up trouble starts.
