THE DESTROYING OF THE YOKE

In a verse of glorious promise Isaiah describes the realization of Israel's long-sought freedom from the Assyrian and writes (Isa. 10:27), "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." Symbolically the Assyrian may be thought of as typifying the belief of life in matter.

Humanity has sought its freedom along devious ways—the increase of materialistic knowledge, the research of materia medica, the waging of war, rebellion, strikes, and in countless other ways; and while the yoke of oppression has often seemed to be momentarily somewhat lifted, it has never been destroyed.
