Preachers: God’s battle axe
Author(s): Dr. Doherty K Fagbiye
Abstract: This paper focuses on “Preachers: God’s battle axe” is a reflection on the book of Prophet Jeremiah 51:21 – 24. It was emphasized that Horses and their riders, man and woman, shepherds and flocks; Husbandman and his yoke of oxen, Captains and Rulers, Babylon and Chaldea would be dealt with by God’s axe. It delves into prevailing circumstances under which the battle axe must work such as death, inflation, looting, retrenchment, insecurity and spiritual. However, for effectiveness God’s battle axe needs to demonstrate faith, filled with Holy Spirit, abide in Christ, dwell richly in the word of God, dedicated and committed with humility to fight successfully in the expansion of God’s Kingdom here on earth.
