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.
An anointing takes place anytime the Holy spirit rubs off on you, imparts on you, endows, or gives you an ability that you did not have before.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
We have the Holy Spirit but He should go from resident to President meaning that He is the leader and not just a “resident”. We should walk in a way that agrees with the Holy Spirit in us.
There are seven anointings that we can see mentioned in scripture. Any one of these anointings will remove burdens and destroy yokes according to Isaiah 10:27.
And 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;
Seven is a divine number of wholeness. Of these seven, wisdom is mentioned to be the principle, or essential, thing.
Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
When you don’t put yourself in place to hear the Word of God, you exclude yourself from wisdom, knowledge and counsel. We must be willing to be taught.
Genesis 1:1-3 is an example of how the spirit is always coupled with the Word. You see God mentioned, then His Spirit, and then his Word. When coupled together, the creation of light occurred.
1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Colossians 1:4-5, 9-11
Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
You can call on Jesus for His anointing. When you profess Philipians 4:19, you are doing just that. I can do all things through Christ anointing…insert any of the anointing here in place of Christ).
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
In this passage, her and she are both referring to wisdom.
Another word for principle is essential. Wisdom is the essential anointing of the Holy Spirit. It makes the others work. (Pastor James gave an illustration of the candlestick and examples of how the almond rod and 66 books of the bible relate).
Pastor James provides an in depth explanation of The Tree of Life, The Almond Rod and The Cross in Chapter 6 of the book, Jesus the Aleph Tav.
Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee. Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
