When Men Of The Force Need A Greater Force

The book under review “When Men of the Force Need a Greater Force” is written by Gbile Akanni. The book explains the real need of men in the force; both military and paramilitary agencies who though armed with guns yet have a need that cannot be met with the aid of the gun, nor their position in the society but by a superior and greater force. Such superior force can only be received through a divine encounter with the Almighty God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

The highlights of the book are biblical illustrations from the lives of some men of the force which shows the emptiness in their lives until they encountered the force of God which changed their lives for good. Naaman, the Syrian Army General (See 2 Kings 5:1-5), Zacchaeus the Chief tax collector of short stature who can be likened to the custom officer of our time and the Centurion in the Roman army who were all used as case studies (see Kgs 5:1-5; 1-5. Lk.19:1-9 and Lk. 7:2-10 respectively)

For Naaman, though he was the Commander of the army of the King of Syria and a mighty man of valour, yet he was a leper. According to the writer, “he was watching his life waste away with leprosy helplessly”. This shows that men in high positions of authority could be struggling with an issue tucked and hidden out of sight under the uniform that even the force of a gun cannot handle. As a commander who wields enormous power, he could command men to move but he could not command his leprosy to vanish because that required a greater force.

The misdemeanour and recalcitrant behaviour of the siblings and children of God's servants all over the nations today is a major source of concern to every serious minded christian, and to us in particular.

The devil has not spared in ridiculing the ministry among the unbelieving world because of the negative testimonies and scandals oozing out of the homes of several of our reputed and local gospel ministers. Many pastors have been forced to stop preaching and resigned from the ministry in shame because of their children.

Recall that Eli the priest was not particularly faulted for his personal sins, but the lives of Hophni and Phinehas his children contradicted the very words he preached from the pulpit. As such, that man of God was disgracefully laid aside.

Samuel that mighty prophet of honour and integrity judged Israel over 50 years during which he turned back their hearts from apostasy to the ways of the living God. Just when he would have retired in peace to bear an eternal reward for that accomplishment- the elders of the land rose up to challenge the wisdom of following God after all “give us a king like other nations “ they said, “for your children are not like you”.
