“On April 28, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. Though marriage between a man and a woman has existed since the beginning and is the cornerstone of ordered society, the time-honored institution is in serious trouble. Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, voters in 30 states had preserved natural marriage in their Constitutions. Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all.” Quote from Tony Perkins at the Family Research Council
Psalm 2 comes to mind as I read this.
1 Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? 2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. 3 “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
Sadly, there are those that think they need to “free themselves from slavery to God.” Lord, how we pray that these people might see the futility of their ways and recognize that Jesus died to set them free from slavery to sin. We pray for their eyes to be enlightened to truth and for them to be saved from the wrath that is sure to come to those who mock the Lord and His Kingdom.
People of God, it is time to awaken from our slumber and recognize the window of grace that is over us now. God has opened a window and invited us to call heaven down to earth to prevent a curse from coming upon our land. We must take Him up on this invitation! We cannot afford to be asleep and miss the opportunity. The consequences will be great if we miss this time. The church missed it in 1973 and we paid dearly for our slumber.
January 22, 1973 – The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 7-2 decision, affirmed the legality of a woman’s right to have an abortion under the Fourteenth amendment to the Constitution.
America plunged into the darkness on that day and the displeasure of God was felt. We allowed the bloodguilt of millions of babies to be spilled, bringing a curse upon our land. One look at the condition of our nation today tells the story of how fast and how far we have fallen. The good news is that after 40 years, this curse was lifted in 2013. The people of God repented and began seeking God’s healing for this land. Awakening has occurred, but the battle isn’t over. The enemy doesn’t sleep. While we are rejoicing that the abortion plague is being pushed back and defeated, another plague has stolen center stage. The sacred marriage union, instituted by God from the beginning of time, is now on trial. Even though the majority of states have already cast their votes and determined that God’s definition of marriage is the only one to be accepted, the current Administration and their minions believe it is their right to “update” our Constitution and subject us to their tryanny. With one swipe of the pen, the Supreme Court judges have power to redefine the most fundamental aspect of human society in this temporal realm. It’s almost inconceivable!
This is the lynchpin the enemy desires so that he can fully implement his perverted and lawless society in this nation. Passing of this bill will open the flood gates of religious persecution and put at risk the foundation of family and faith that we have enjoyed in this nation since its founding. We are already witnessing the effects of homosexual behavior on our youth, the confusion of identity in transgender persons, and the penalties associated with trying to help people that want to come out of these lifestyles. The next generation, our children and grandchildren, are the biggest losers in this battle. Living life as a heterosexual, married and faithful to one spouse is being called “archaic.” The LBGT coalition would have us believe that to be “normal” means engaging in, or at least accepting, the most bizarre sexual behaviors and not knowing whether you are truly male or female. This is insanity! This is not God’s desire for us. Let us agree with Him and His Word. Let us co-labor with Him to set America free and hold on to the dignity that we have as people created in the image of God.
God gave us this beautiful land of America so that we would be a witness to the world of His Glory and His Goodness. He equipped us the precious gifts of His Word and His Spirit. Jesus said “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth,” and then He turned and passed His authority on to us, those Who have believed in Him for our salvation. We are powerful people and we can shift this nation through our prayers. Don’t accept the lies that say that this the evolution and liberation of our culture. We must stand for our God given rights and dignity. Please take heed to the seriousness of this hour and pray fervently from now through April 28. God is looking for His remnant to arise into our authority to possess and occupy this land until He comes! This land and these people are the reason that Jesus died on the Cross. We are His inheritance. It is our privilege and our glory to present it to Him when He comes!
A Few Prayer Points:
- That the Fear of the Lord would prevent the Supreme Court justices from being able to make such a sweeping and serious error against the God of the Universe.
- That the Justices and their counsel would have divine encounters in their sleep that would fill them with reverence for God and His ways.
- That those speaking in defense of Biblical marriage would speak with an authority that demands reverence, that their speech be anointed and hit the mark precisely.
- That those that seek to redefine marriage speak with discordant sounds that drives them into confusion and makes their arguments implausible.
- That the enemy’s schemes be exposed and backfire, bringing many people to an awakening of the goodness of God
Spread the word in your sphere of influence and let people know about April 28. You have a voice and you are part of the solution!
Thank you for your faithfulness to stand for righteousness and justice in our land!
