Is there a judgment and salvation side to Yoke? Let's examine.

YOKE: CHRIST? (relates to Bondage)

De 28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a YOKE OF IRON upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

Jer 28:14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a YOKE of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar KING OF BABYLON; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.

La 1:14 The YOKE of my transgressions is bound by his hand: they are wreathed, and come up upon my neck: he hath made my STRENGTH TO FALL, the Lord hath delivered me into their hands, from whom I am not able to rise up.

Lu 14:19 And another said, I have bought five YOKE of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

Re 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of BALANCES <2218> in his hand.


Jer 28:4 And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that went into Babylon, saith the LORD: for I will break the YOKE of the KING OF BABYLON.

Jer 30:8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his YOKE from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

Jer 28:11 And Hananiah spake in the presence of all the people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Even so will I break the YOKE of Nebuchadnezzar king of BABYLON from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years. And the prophet Jeremiah went his way.

Isa 14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard BONDAGE wherein thou wast made to serve,

Ac 7:7 And the nation to whom they shall be in BONDAGE will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.

Php 1:13 So that my BONDS IN CHRIST are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;

Col 4:3 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in BONDS:

Ro 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION into the glorious liberty of the children of God.


The Bible appears to be associating Yoke with Christ. To take His yoke and Burden would seem to relate to Salvation. However in tribulation, the Church comes to be under the Yoke of Bondage. Meaning it is now under the bondage of Antichrist rather than the Yoke of Christ. And when God separates the wheat from the tares, God breaks the Yoke of their bondage in bringing them back to Christ.
