  • John Onuekwusi for verse 27
    I think God is talking about the immeasurable greatness of His power that accompanies His presence at work in the life those who beleive against the influence of satan in their life. For every appearance of God the power of Liberty is released.

    God gaves us his heavenly manna the word of God. He who eat the word of God will find the truth and the truth will set us free. We must obey his words and accept his words as God 's words can give us peace, life, joy, abundance and can save our soul. We are already covered and washed from Jesus precious blood that shed for us. We must be thankful and praised Jesus for everything he have done in our lives. We must follow thy way, we as a sheep must follow Jesus as he is the good Shephered who lay down his life for us, protecting us and comforting us. We must live like Jesus and follow him and believe him that he is the Son of the Living God. Jesus says i am the way the truth and the life no man comes to the Father except thru me. We must be found in the church and hear God 's words until rapture. Jesus loves us so much that you cant imagine

    The anointing destroys the yoke and lifts the heavy burdens from off of our shoulders Two oxen were ladden with the yoke around their shoulder and could only go where they were led even if they didn t want to go they were forced to go against their will We have to focus on God to lift our heavy burdens and repent and ask for the forgiveness of our sins Satan can t is a liar and if we lie we are yoked up in bondage but if we tell the truth it frees us from enslaved mindset and causes the enemy to run and loose Us from the chains of bondage God said in his word if you continue in my word then are you my disciples indeed and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free Freedoms looses all shackles of bondage When Paul Silas prayed at midnight the earthquake came and open all the prison doors and the chains were broken asunder Although Paul Silas went to prison unjustly they cried out to God and he heard their prayer of truth and freed them
  • Madalitso I think the verse says burden shall be broken because of anointing Not because of fatness richness or the neck has grown so big Consider 1 Is 24 16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs even glory to the righteous But I said My leanness my leanness woe unto me the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously yea the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously 2 But yet Is 6 where the hearts have grown thick with gross fatness and the fulness of hearing and the pride the spiritual blindness of life 1 seems fat must be good for leanness equates to woe 2 seems waxing fat gross is undesirable Leanness a shortage and lacking in the strength of the Word THAT brings about liberty where the Spirit of the Lord is flowing His Blood through His Word there is Liberty looking into THAT perfect Glass though darkly now removes the hedge Anointing and exposes one to threats Fatness think plumbing arteries veins heart valves obesity sclerosis plaque sludge slowdown stoppage clogging BAD No Anointing Bloody flow of fulness and richness and fatness of spiritual integrity and strength to enhance cleanout hence no destruction of the constraining blockage lye is made from fat to unclog pipings It kinda sorta depends on the kind of leanness and fatness as applicable Fatness is good if it s the right kind hdl and used in moderation
