I was listening to Dr. Lance Wallnau (author of "God's Chaos Candidate") and what he spoke, I convey to you. Apathy is the churches' biggest weakness at this time. Lack of concern, lack of interest, indifference and laziness.

What should the church be doing? Pulling down strongholds and praying for God's righteousness, justice and truth to prevail over this nation. But this really concerns me.

In 2 Kings 13:17, Joash, the kind of Israel came down to see Elisha, the prophet, before he died and Elisha told him to take a bow and shoot an arrow. And he did. Then Elisha said, "the arrow of the Lord's deliverance."

Then in verse 18 he said, "Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel. Smite them upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed." (19) And the man of God was wroth (angry or irate) with him and said, "Thou should have smitten five or six times; then had thou smitten Syria (the enemy) till thou had consumed it; where as now, though shall smite Syria but thrice."

This could very well be a warning for the Christians voting in the mid-term elections. If the Christians don't come out but sit back thinking they have already done their part by getting President Trump elected, not voting in November, not holding him up in prayer for God's guidance and protection, asking wisdom for him, we could be making the same mistake that King Joash made and only have a partial victory.

Remember, the Old Testament's happenings were given us as examples we could glean and learn from (1 Corintians 10:6, 11). As Christans, we can't afford to be lackadaisical and not involved.
