What Thomas Jefferson Feared
Though it is impossible to overstate the damage inflicted over the past 7 years by the current administration, much of the destruction actually began in the 1960’s when God’s influence was removed from our schools. Our destruction originated in the Supreme Court. Interestingly, this was “prophesied” by Thomas Jefferson, whose greatest fear was that the courts would inappropriately take authority not afforded them by the Constitution—which he helped draft! In 1821 Jefferson 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.”
“How horrible it will be for those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn what is bitter into something sweet and what is sweet into something bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20; GWT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Let’s pray about the Supreme Court today. You can learn about the Court here.
Call the Court to accountability before the Judge of the whole earth. Proclaim that there is a Court above our Court, which will someday try every man for their deeds.
Intercede with passion for the salvation of the current 9 Supreme Court Justices and those past justices that are still living: John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Connor and David Souter. Forgive them, for they do not understand what they have done as far as making decisions that turn the nation’s course away from that which pleases God.
Declare that the Court is limited to the Constitutional boundaries it was given and that it shall not make law! Ask for a long-seated God-fearing Court.
A prayer you can pray:
Dear Lord, teach me about the U. S. Supreme Court and the role the Justices were supposed to play, as opposed to the role they do play. We bring this court to You, Judge of the earth, and we ask You to judge with righteous judgement the actions of this court. We declare that Your rulings alone will stand. Turn the hearts of these men and women, as You turn the course of water. Reveal Yourself to them and we pray that they would be saved. We declare that the U. S. Supreme Court is limited in its actions to the boundaries given to it in the Constitution. We ask for God-fearing Justices that will serve long and serve our people well. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
We decree that the usurping power of the Supreme Court Justices is stopped in its tracks today and that the Court will return to its boundaries mandated by the U. S. Constitution.
