The Most Important Supreme Court Case in Decades
Flying the American flag upside down - when done for the right reasons - is an officially recognized signal of danger and distress; it is not a sign of disrespect. America is now in one of the most alarming seasons of her history, with decisions being made that have and could continue to undo two and a half centuries of blessing. Our moral decline, antichrist laws, humanistic culture and godless leaders have brought us to the point where we need to be resurrected, not just resuscitated.
Much of the destruction began in the 1960s and originated in the American judiciary branch, including the Supreme Court. Interestingly, this was “prophesied” by Thomas Jefferson, whose greatest fear regarding America’s future was the authority taken by the courts, which he declared that the Constitution—which he helped draft!—had not given them.
In 1821 he declared, “The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the federal judiciary. An irresponsible body, working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief over the field of jurisdiction until all shall be usurped from the states.”(1) Incredibly strong language. One is reminded of Paul’s words in Galatians 5:9: “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”
The founders of our government never intended for the Supreme Court to be the supreme branch of our government. Nowhere does our Constitution give them authority over the Executive and Legislative branches. In fact, they did not even have their own building until 1935; they met in the Capitol. Nine unelected men and women ruling our nation in the way the Supreme Court now does has resulted in “a despotic branch”(2) in whose hands the Constitution has become a “thing of wax,”(3) as warned by Jefferson 200 years ago.
One of their own, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, called his colleagues “black-robed masters,” going on to say that “the Court has essentially liberated itself from the text of the Constitution…and from the traditions of the American people.” Scalia went on to state clearly that the Constitution “is not a living organism” as the liberals like to state when twisting its meaning into what they want it to say.(4)
One of today’s liberal Federal Judges, Richard Posner, no longer sees the need to twist the Constitution’s meaning in order to make his warped rulings. He simply admits that to him, and many other judges and attorneys today, the Constitution is irrelevant. “I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation…the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post-Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.” (After much criticism, Posner later backed off from this ridiculous comment.)(5)
If you’re wondering where in the Constitution judges found the removing of prayer from schools, abortion rights, the redefining of marriage and other liberal positions, the answer is simple: they didn’t. They simply legislated from the bench, according to their own desires and ideals.
Today, the Supreme Court is hearing a case that could overturn Roe versus Wade, the evil ruling that has resulted in more than 60 million babies being killed in their mother’s womb. It is America’s greatest failure and shame. As Jefferson warned, the “noiseless step” has advanced until we now kill babies that survive abortions, after which we sell their body parts. The left rabidly defends all of this. If the Court rules once again for death, let it not be because we did not do our part to pray. Cry out on behalf of the babies! Ask Holy Spirit to put heavenly pressure on the Justices to vote for life. Re-read yesterday‘s post and, using its suggestions, pray for the attorneys and Justices. Listen to Holy Spirit and pray as He leads you.
I leave you with a quote from the Supreme Court affirming that America is a Christian nation. Pray that this mindset one day returns to the Court.
“In 1892, in Church of the Holy Trinity v. The United States, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that:
‘Our laws and institutions must necessarily be based upon the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent, our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian...This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation...that this is a Christian nation. We are founded to legislate, propagate, and secure Christianity.’ (6)
“Again in 1947, the Court said ‘we are a religious people and our laws presuppose’ the existence of God. The Court upheld our national motto as constitutional in 1979 (In God We Trust), as well as having paid chaplains in the Legislative branch of government in 1983.”(7)
Don’t give up on America!
Pray with me:
Father, we ask You to move on the hearts of five or more Justices as they think and deliberate, bending their will toward You and the babies. Shift thinking where it is necessary, silence voices that need to be silenced, give favor to those that need favor. Speak to them in any way necessary to turn their hearts and minds to the appropriate ruling. Obviously, they hold a live hearing, but much of their information will be taken from the written Briefs. Speak through these writings. We ask You to anoint the words of the pro-life Briefs with fire from Holy Spirit. We ask that the pro-death attorneys’ words be as the prophets of Baal, that their words will have no power.
We pray for the verbal arguments of the pro-life attorneys in this case. We ask You to give them brilliance, wisdom, and excellent choices of wording. We ask that confusion, errors, and disjointed language come to the pro-abortion attorneys. We ask for a very literal anointing of the Holy Spirit to be present in the courtroom when this case is heard, that Your presence be in the room, Holy Spirit.
Please give us a reversal of the insidious ruling, Roe vs Wade, and break its hold off of this nation.
We decree that the covenant of death is broken off of America!
“For you have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death and a pact with the underworld, so when the overwhelming scourge sweeps over us, it will not harm us. For we have made lies our refuge and find our shelter in falsehood.’ Here’s what the Lord God says: ‘Behold, I set in place in Zion a Foundation Stone, fully tested and proven to be faithful and secure. And written upon this precious cornerstone is this: “Those who trust in Him will not act in haste.” I will set justice as the true measurement and integrity, its plumb line. My hailstorm will sweep away your refuge of lies, and My floodwaters will overwhelm your hiding place. Then your covenant with death will be annulled and your pact with the underworld will not stand. And when the overwhelming scourge sweeps over you, it will sweep you away!’” (Isaiah 28-15-18, TPT)
