Holding the Courts Accountable
Not only the Supreme Court, but others in the Judiciary system have run amuck. One of today’s liberal federal judges, Richard Posner, no longer even 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.”1 (Emphasis mine.) So, if you’re wondering where in the Constitution judges find the removing of prayer from schools, abortion rights, the redefining of marriage and other liberal positions, the answer is simple: they don’t. They simply legislate from the bench, according to their own desires and ideals, leading to an overly powerful judiciary branch with no remaining standard for which they must be held accountable.
“You shall appoint for yourself judges and officers in all your towns which the LORD your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.” (Deuteronomy 16:18; NASB) “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.” (Isaiah 33:22; KJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Bring your anger to the Lord and let Him turn it into intercession with weeping for the twisting in our judicial system!
It is critical that the nation has a firm foundation to stand on and that foundation is the Constitution of the United States of America. Call to the Judge of the Whole Earth to consider these that ignore it and ask the Lord to replace them with judges that will honor our Constitution.
Boldly ask the Lord for a reversal of decisions that have been made by opinion and current cultural influences or international standards. Ask God for justice and expect it, because these decisions were made under false pretenses!
A prayer you can pray:
God, it is frustrating for your people when we have appointed judges that do not honor our founding documents, especially the United State Constitution. This document was founded on godly principles, but modern judges are telling us they are purposefully ignoring it! We appeal to a higher Court and we ask You, Judge of the Earth, to move on behalf of our intercession and replace these renegade judges who judge according to their whims and fancies with those that will honor our Constitution. We also boldly ask You to raise up situations to bring cases back before re-seated courts that will result in righteous judgements and set the nation back on a proper course founded on proper interpretation of the Constitution. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
The Lord will give this nation judges that honor the Constitution upon which it was founded!
