Genesis 27:40
And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck” (Genesis 27:30).

This verse of scripture is loaded with great meaning and insight. Oppressive servitude can only persist as long as there is no dominion. Dominion brings an end to oppressive slavery. It enables a person to breathe the air of freedom and march forward to a new destiny.

Are you afflicted? Is your family oppressed? Is your community under a satanic yoke? There is a glorious promise for you: “Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city” (Numbers 24:19).

Out of that oppressed family shall come he that shall have dominion. Out of that satanically yoked community shall come he that shall have dominion. You shall have dominion.


Genesis 27:40; Deuteronomy 2:12; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Timothy 6:12; 2 Timothy 4:7,8; 1 Corinthians 9:26; Ephesians 6:12.

AND BY THY SWORD SHALT THOU LIVE, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck” (Genesis 27:40).

The Edomites were the descendants of Esau (Genesis 36:8,9,43). The scripture as well as history record that the Edomites were a warring people for many generations. Esau was a hunter. He lived by his sword and other weapons of hunting and warfare (Genesis 25:27-29; 27:3-5,30; 32:8,11; 33:1).

The history of the Edomites is one of wars with the Jews (Exodus 15:15; Numbers 20:14-21; 1 Samuel 14:47,48; 2 Samuel 8:14; 1 Kings 11:14-25; 2 Kings 8:20-22; 14:7,10; 2 Chronicles 21:8-10; Ezekiel 25:12-14; Judges 11:17,18).

The Edomites extended their territory by warfare. They indeed lived by their sword (Deuteronomy 2:12).

Saul fought the Edomites amongst others and vexed them (1 Samuel 14:47,48). Yokes bring vexation and we have to fight against that (Matthew 15:22).

David and Joab wiped out every male in Edom with the exception of those who managed to escape (1 Kings 11:14-25). Yokes have the capacity to wipe out the best in our lives and cut off our posterity.

Don’t relent. Battle against every yoke in your life. Keep on growing. Keeping on developing your faith. Keep on praying. Keep on in spiritual warfare. Dominion is on the way.

By our sword we shall also live. There is no other way to live in this present world where the spiritual battles are intensifying everyday as the world rolls to an end. The sword of the Spirit is our defence and weapon (Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13; Hebrews 4:12). We must fight the good fight of faith to be victorious (1 Timothy 6:12; 2 Timothy 4:7,8; 1 Corinthians 9:26). We must wrestle with principalities and powers (Ephesians 6:12).

Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood” (Jeremiah 48:10).

Don’t keep your sword from the blood of the enemy. Let it be moist with the fresh blood of the enemy. Live by thy sword. Wield the sword of the Spirit and win the victory!


Genesis 27:40,29-39; 25:23,29-34; Romans 9:10-16; Isaiah 52:3-6; 49:24-26; 2 Samuel 8:14; Numbers 24:18; Deuteronomy 2:4-9.

And by thy sword shalt thou live, AND SHALT SERVE THY BROTHER; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck” (Genesis 27:40).

By divine prophecy and by personal choice, Esau became subservient to Jacob (Genesis 25:23,29-34; 27:29-40; Romans 9:10-16). Esau became a servant to Jacob and their descendants followed the same pattern. The Edomites bowed under the yoke.

Some people as a result of satanic pronouncements like curses, hexes, spells as well as by personal choice as they visit fetish priests and consult occultists have brought themselves under some yokes. They brought multiplied sorrows into their lives by worshipping idols (Psalm 16:4).

They sold themselves into the Devil’s hands for nothing. They are the architects of their own misfortune. They are lawful captives (Isaiah 52:3-6; 49:24-26).

And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout ALL Edom put he garrisons, and ALL they of Edom BECAME DAVID’S SERVANTS” (2 Samuel 8:14).

Is the Devil policing your life? Has Satan placed garrisons around every department of your life to control and restrict your movement, to dictate the pace of your life?

And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly” (Numbers 24:18).

When a person becomes a servant, the fear and dread of his master dominates his life: “Ye are to pass through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; AND THEY SHALL BE AFRAID OF YOU …” (Deuteronomy 2:4-9).

Whatever is a yoke in a person’s life becomes the person’s master. Thinking of this yoke brings a dread. Experiencing the impact of this yoke brings affliction and oppression. Life is bowed under the yoke. Resources of time, money and effort – spiritual praying, physical medication etc. are directed towards the yoke. Essentially we serve the yoke. A yoke in a particular area of life essentially takes away our freedom in that area of life.

Edom under David was free to reproduce and have children, free to grow crops, free to eat whatever they liked but they were not free to govern themselves, to decide their destiny. There was a yoke in this area of their lives (2 Samuel 8:14).
