Nations and churches that willfully refuse to fill their quivers with young men and women, trained as sharp polished arrows, will stand ashamed before their enemies, whether they be physical or spiritual. The sad thing is that God is more than willing to provide us with arrows, but we are too deceived to receive them.
Some European nations have approximately 1.2 arrows in their quivers; others have 1.8 arrows. However, the population scientist, Theodore Lachish states that anything less than three is doomed to self destruction because some may have infertility, others may not marry, some could die before marriage or before their child-bearing years are over, and some, God forbid, will live alternative lifestyles that cannot produce children.
Most, if not all, of our western nations stand ashamed before their enemies, either within or outside the gates, and yet we are so deceived we will not accept our shame. Let alone repent. The truth of the matter is that God reveals that children of our youth (to young mothers and fathers) are to be recognized as arrows. If they are rightly polished and sharpened they can be enlisted in Christ’s mighty army to destroy all darkness and evil. Jesus Christ is the mighty conqueror of Revelation 6:2: and 19:11-15.
All Christians should seek, with God’s help, to fill their quivers and enlist them in Christ’s army. He is the only one who can remove our shame. The gates our nation and cities are being knocked down daily. Where are the arrows who will speak and contend for the truth?
