Judah — Gods Battle Axe
When God, through His Son, the returned Messiah, manifests Himself as a Man of War, He will do so with Judah as His Army. That is very clear from the following testimonies, where the Jews are referred to as:
“Thou art my battle axe” (Jer. li. 20); “A sharp threshing instrument” (Isa. xli. 15); “A Lion among beasts” (Mic. v. 8);
“goodly horse in the battle” (Zech. x. 3); “The sword of a mighty man”(Zech. ix. 13); “A strong nation” (Mic. iv. 7; Isaiah lx. 22).
And, in Mic. iv. 13, God says:
“I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass”.
At that time it will be unmistakably apparent of Israel that,
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper” (Isa. liv. 17).
