Anointing is a covering. Yoke although its a device made for oxen across their necks for plowing, in Jesus time yoke was used to describe submission a designation of servitude. To carry the burden of a task or mission. Anointing means to rub with oil to make someone or something sacred.  To be chosen. Shephards used to pour oil on their sheep  to keep away insects off their heads and away from their eyes and ears. The oil made the insects slip off. Anointing symbolic a blessing protection and empowerment. God is protective over his anointed ones, his set apart ones. The word Christ means anointed one or anointing. The anointing is always with us upon us and in us. Yoked in Christ means free from bondage. Anointing is our clothing.

JESUS  Isa 61:1 THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,  

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,  

3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

4 And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
