Last Sunday evening, we studied, prayed and decreed God’s axe as His weapon of spiritual warfare against the spirit of darkness over our nation, COVID 19, the Deep State, and the rioters.  On Sunday evenings we are using Dr. D. K. Olukoya’s book, 101 Weapons of Spiritual Warfare as our study guide.  He has put many hours of research in this book.

The axe is an aggressive weapon of war.  It breaks in pieces and destroys totally, every stubborn stronghold that is militating against God’s people from the kingdom of darkness.  This weapon is used against satanic arrows.  It is a weapon of force against violent demonic powers. 

Jeremiah 51:20:  You are my battle axe and weapons of war; for with you will I break in pieces the nations, and with you will I destroy kingdoms.

This past Tuesday, July 28, 2020, Cindy Jacobs gave the following Word at TXAPN:

“The Lord would say, ‘Texas, you are My battle ax. You are My shield." 

The Lord said, "I am pouring out My Spirit upon you to protect the nation. I am pouring out the spirit of a warrior upon TXAPN. Gird your loins, be strong, because I have you on the forefront; you are front-line. You are on the battlefront. I am not having you at the back of the battle, you are on the front of the battle. Your prayers are availing much. This state will be on fire for the gospel. I am getting ready to light gospel fires that are going to spring up in so many little places.’

The Lord shows me all these rural places that the fire of God is going to hit. It is not just going to hit in the cities. 

The fire of God will come to Austin, and even to the city of Dallas, the city of Houston, not just the outskirts.

The Lord says, ‘Look to the rural communities, for I am going to pour out like a Cane Ridge Revival with the fear of the Lord. And I going to raise up evangelists that are going to have such an anointing upon what they say, that people will fall under the power of God, and the fear of the Lord will grip them, just as in days of yore.’” (1801)

Twenty-three weapons of God’s warfare are listed in Jeremiah 51.  This is not the full armory of the LORD, but a powerful force that he brought against Babylon, a type of the Beast/world system/Illuminati.

I checked the weapons of Jeremiah 51 against Bro. Olukoya’s “101 weapons.”  He only listed ten of them in his book. 

Jer. 51:1-3: - Thus says the LORD; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind;  And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about.  Against him that bends, let the archer bend his bow, and against him that lifts himself up in his brigandine (coat of mail): and spare not her young men; destroy utterly all her host.

Let’s start with the “fanners.”  Kelly Varner identifies these “fanners” with apostles who will thresh the evil ones in the day of trouble and darkness.  Let the archer bend the bow and spare not.  Keep in mind, these are God’s divine weapons (anointings) that He releases in His warfare from His armory in Heaven.

D.K.O.: “When we are faced with tough battles, we need to invoke divine fanners (apostles) and dispatch them into the camp of the enemy.  The weapon of divine fanners is needed when we are faced with an unending cycle of wicked attacks.”

The message of Jeremiah is one of eventual restoration.  The Word of the Lord calls backsliders to forsake their iniquity and return to the Lord.   The seventy-year exile of Israel in Babylon has ended.  The Lord is sending forth his weapons of warfare to deliver Israel using the Medes under the leadership of Cyrus.     


The purpose of the book of Jeremiah is manifold: (1) to show God’s grace and mercy in calling a backslidden nation to the Lord. (2) To reveal the righteous judgments of the Lord. (3) To reveal the destiny of the nations. (4) To historically reveal God’s dealings with the destruction of the Temple, the desolation of the city, and the captivity of the nation of Judah to Babylon.


America is a captive nation.  We are under siege.  The Lord has spoken through His prophet, that He is now bringing all nations into the destiny of nations.,


I always knew that our church being at the Willow Fork was a prophetic sign of the captivity of the Church universal.  The LORD uses our congregation as a “sign.”  It is interesting that we were released from Willow Fork at the onset of COVID 19.   


What is our captivity as a nation?  Our freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, right to worship, and our liberty and justice have been attacked by the pandemic, bondage, and terrorism from people groups who want to destroy the rule of law, our constitution, and our churches. Many churches are so intimidated by COVID 19 and fear of government; they are now oppressed into captivity.  We reached a point until A. G. Barr came in that our Justice Department was so corrupt that no one trusted anything they did.  We were coming into captivity of the F.B.I. and Deep State. 


We are at war and we need to know how to release God’s weapons of warfare.  The Civil Government cannot restore this nation until the Church arises in the power the Lord has given to us. 


Jer. 51: 10-12: The LORD has brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God.  Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple. Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the LORD has both devised and done that which he spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.


Arrows are a type of the sons-of-God.  Shields are faith ministries.  Spirit of the kings of the Medes is a spirit of self-sufficiency.  Set up a standard (raise your banner high). The watchmen are the intercessors of Isa. 52: 7-8.  Prepare ambushes.


D.K.O.: Arrow of God.  Zechariah 9:14:  The LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning; and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with the whirlwind of the south.


The arrow of God sends confusion into the camp of Satan.  Invading the territory of the enemy can be likened to the speed of lightning.  The arrow is a weapon of total deliverance.


Jer. 51: 14-16: The LORD of hosts hath sworn by himself, saying, ‘Surely I will fill you with men, as with caterpillars; and they shall lift up a shout against you. He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched out the heaven by his understanding.  When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth: he makes lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.


Caterpillars are locusts which is part of God’s judgment of pestilence.  Locusts invade.  Exodus 10:4: If you refuse to let my people go, behold tomorrow will I bring the locusts into your coast.


The “shout” of God is great victory.   The LORD is releasing behind His weapons of war against Babylon the full power of His wisdom which founded the earth, his understanding by which he established the heavens and His knowledge which created the oceans and caused the clouds to drop down the dew. (Prov. 3: 19-20).


D.K.O.: “The ‘Voice’ of God is a powerful weapon of deliverance.  It is one of the most powerful weapons that is available to use in our battles.  The voice of God is a voice of finality.  The voice of God is loaded with fire.  The voice of God changes evil verdicts to declaration of victory.”


The lightnings of God scatter our enemies.  The enemies of destiny and breakthrough cannot escape the fierce lightening of the Almighty.  God, the Man of War, will shoot out terrific lightning in order to send disaster into the enemy’s camp.  With one arrow of lightning, the enemies of your breakthrough and deliverance will be dispersed.



Jer. 51:20-24 :You are my battle axe and weapons of war: for with you I will  break in pieces the nations, and with you I will destroy kingdoms;  And with you I will break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with you I will break in pieces the chariot and his rider;  With you I will also break in pieces man and woman; and with you I will break in pieces old and young; and with you I will break in pieces the young man and the maid;  I will also break in pieces with you the shepherd and his flock; and with you I will  break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with you I will  break in pieces captains and rulers.  And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, says the LORD.


The battle axe is the weapon Cindy Jacobs’ prophesied is in the hand of the Texas intercessors.  We prayed Sunday night it would be in the hand of President Donald J. Trump as he battles COVID 19, China and the racial wars.  It is one of the weapons given to Cyrus the Great and his Medo-Persian army which conquered unconquerable Babylon.  Babylon’s impregnable fortifications with high walls at least forty feet wide could not save her from the vengeance of God, (51:58) and His divine weapons of warfare.


When the LORD releases the anointing of the battles axe, enemies will flee and evil powers will bow.  The battle axe will enable God’s people to break down demonic towers.  It is part of the divine engines of war.  There is no satanic gathering that the axe of God cannot scatter.


In the end time battle, it will destabilize the kingdom of darkness.


 Jer. 51:48-49: Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, says the LORD.  As Babylon has caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth.


The spoilers speak of total devastation taking what is left after the destruction.




Jer. 51: 53-56: Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, says the LORD. A sound of a cry comes from Babylon, and great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans:  Because the LORD has spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered: Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken: for the LORD God of recompences shall surely requite. And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.


Jer.. 51:58: Thus says the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labor in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.


United States of America wake up!  Your cities and gates are being burned with fire.  We are in judgment.  We must repent and turn to the Lord or our judgment will be no less than other great nations which have fallen.


Beginning with 9-11, we have had judgment after judgment plague our nation.  The Church must arise.  Preachers cannot cover this with sweet words.  We must repent.  We must pick up the end-time weapons of real spiritual warfare and come along side the Captain of the Lord of Hosts.

Post Script: It is interesting about Cane Ridge Revival.  I have studied many of the revivals; but I was not aware of this one.  Since the prophecy over Texas is that it will be like a “Cane Ridge Revival,” I searched it out. 

“The Cane Ridge Revival was a large camp meeting that was held in Cane Ridge, Kentucky from August 6 to August 12 or 13, 1801.[1][2] It has been described as the largest and most famous camp meeting of the Second Great Awakening." It was based at the Cane Ridge Meeting House near Paris (Bourbon County) and drew between 10,000 and 20,000 people.   The meeting was hosted by the Presbyterian church
