“>>Do you believe that sin can become a “yoke” around your neck? Can sin sap your strength? Can sin hand you over to those you cannot withstand?>>

This is not the first reference in the Bible where “sin” and/or “sins” are seen as something that entraps and entangles because it has substance. I believe sin gives birth to its own rewards. It is not so much God punishing us for our sins but the consequences, the fruition of our acts catching up with us. In other books, sin is seen as producing cords that entangle us.

Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and in irons, [Luke 1:79.] Because they had rebelled against the words of God and spurned the counsel of the Most High. (Psalms 107:10-11 AMP)

And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction; Then he showeth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded. (Job 36:8-9 KJV)

His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins. (Proverbs 5:22 KJV)

Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: (Isaiah 5:18 KJV)

Just as the Apostle Paul wrote about Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) there is also a fruit of sin; just as there is an outgrowth from righteousness, there is also consequences of sin, a by-product. If we can visualize sin having cords that bind us and those around us then those same cords can be woven to make a yoke to not only enslave us but also to confine us in a straitjacket.

Grace and peace,

Ramona I would not put sin in as a friuit. The
Fruit of the spirit is a gift upon receiving the Holy Spirit . The sin is something we allow or bring on which is not of God and separates us from God
