2 Kings 6:1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us.
2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.
3 And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered, I will go.
4 So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood.
5 But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed.
6 And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim.
7 Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it.
1) you cannot build the Kingdom of God with a borrowed Axe - here figuratively is borrowing the anointing nobody can build the kingdom of God this way!! see how people imitate other preachers you cannot borrow a preaching whether message or style!! Imitation has become the order of the day here in Africa with ministers taking other preachers messages and styles of preaching to use in their local congregations... This makes the message irrelevant for the audience.. for instance the dominating problems of America and Europe are not the problems of Africa or Asia. So if a preacher in Africa taking a message from a preacher in America or Europe will make that message absolutely irrelevant to the audience.
2) you cannot build the kingdom of God with a broken axe handle- broken relationship with God will never build Gods kingdom see keep your relationship straight with God and let Him use you. In order to teach about God you must have a relationship with God this means you ought to be born again. God already provided an avenue for a sound relationship with himself through Jesus Christ, therefore to build the kingdom of God you must be in this relationship
3) you cannot build the kingdom of God with a loose axe handle the axe head will fall- here i refer to loose morals and sexual maneuvers which pull down even Kings; consider irresponsible sexual behavior of David and Solomon!! They almost became enemies of God due to their craving foe women . Ministers of religion nowadays compromise their stand in Christ for money, they don't face sin with the contempt it deserves they say its done in the west so why don't we do it here? Indeed it is weird to think you can build the kingdom of God with loose morals for even those you will witness to will out-rightly see themselves more righteous than the ministers or people who are in a perverted church
