Immediate and Complete Freedom

For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder. (Nahum 1:13)

The Assyrian was allowed for a season to oppress the Lord’s people, but a time came for his power to be broken. Like this, many held in bondage by Satan have painfully worried under his yoke. May the word of the Lord resonate according to the text, “Now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder!”

See! The Lord promises a present deliverance. “Now will I break his yoke from off you.” Believe for immediate freedom, and according to your faith so shall it be unto you at this very hour. When God says “now,” let no man say “tomorrow.”

See how complete the rescue is to be; for the yoke is not to be removed but broken; and the bonds are not to be untied but burst asunder. Here is a display of divine force which guarantees that the oppressor shall not return. His yoke is broken, we cannot be bowed down by its weight again. His bonds, are burst asunder, they can no longer hold us. Believe in Jesus for complete and everlasting emancipation! “If the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.” Come, Lord, and set free Your captives, according to Your Word.
