The Battle Axe of God

Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations,
and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.
In the days of yore, a major weapon of warfare was the battle axe, we also know that axe is usually
used to break hard items, such as wood, bones of animals. The axe has many use, it can be used
as useful implement around the house, or as a weapon of defence and indeed as that of offence.
Our memory verse lends credence to the fact that our God is involved in warfare , therefore it is
correct to say that the life of the Christian(Children of God) is a life of battles against the enemies of
God as His battle axe with the mandate to break in pieces nations that are opposed to the rulership
of God, and also to such kingdoms that exalts itself against the knowledge of Him. You His battle
For an axe to be effective it must submit itself to the One who handles it (Is.10:15), for you to be
useful in the hand of God, you must be willing to do His bidding, additionally, the axe must be sharp
(Eccl. 10:10), meaning as children of God and His battle axe , we must be holy and always ready for
His use, particularly when we consider that the battles with the kingdom of Satan is one that comes
in waves, never ending and always changing format.
Ps. 11:3
What can the righteous accomplish when truth’s pillars are destroyed and law and order
Unrighteousness in our lives will render us unprofitable in the plan of God to deploy us as His battle
axe, as a matter of fact it makes us a thing of scorn and derision before Him, Eccl 10:1 says
As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honour.
Although God desires for or us to be His battle axe, however, no one goes to battles with
unprepared and not fit for purpose army (Jud.7:1-3), it takes more than being a Christian to be an
effective battle axe, it takes consecration, commitment, readiness and a life of holiness. Since He
does not want any to be a casualty in the battle front, as many that are not ready to watch and pray
in preparedness for the waves of satanic onslaught against the kingdom of God may be easily
expended, therefore God will not count on them, those are the ones Apostle Paul described in
They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s
power. Stay away from people like these!
Your job as God’s battle axe is to stand against and destroy every part of the kingdom that runs
contrary to that of God, and ensure the establishment of His kingdom on earth, that is why you are
alive and have been blessed with every blessings in Heavenly places….. Are you living as His battle
axe, can He use you to break in pieces the opposing nations and destroy such kingdoms?
God needs you to be ready for deployment, I pray when you are called upon you will not disappoint
