TOPIC: THE ANOINTING SUFFICES
TEXT: Isaiah 10:20-34
KEY VERSE: “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)
DCLM Daily Manna 22nd March 2022 | MESSAGE:
God’s mercy has always revealed itself even where there is a promise of punishment against His people when they err. This was a recurring and significant theme in God’s assignments to the prophets when He had a message for His people after they had gone into sin.
Judah faced divine ostracism in the days of King Ahaz who sealed a pact with Assyria in order to gain protection from Israel and Syria. These were not deals that pleased the Lord. He said He would scourge Zion through external forces because of their action. Yet, He did not intend to wipe them out of existence. A remnant would be preserved because they were a people of covenant, upon whom there was “anointing” that could destroy yokes.
People who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus have a special seal or anointing on them that guarantees that no yoke or curse of the enemy affects them as long as they remain holy and faithful to Him and “abstain from every appearance of evil”. Consecrated believers connected to Jesus through His shed blood will survive and overcome any onslaught. The enemy’s “yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”
Since there is no unconditional security in the plan of God, our part, as His chosen ones, is to “watch and pray” and not to fall away from the “narrow path” where we are guaranteed the protection promised by the Lord. The passover blood can only protect those who abide in the house marked by it. Outside the coverage of Christ’s blood, there is no true and lasting security.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Stay in the Lord’s circle to the end.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 51-52
