The Consecration of the Supreme Court

A despot is a king or other ruler with absolute, unlimited power. Despotism, then, is absolute power or control; tyranny. With these definitions in mind, consider the following statement from Thomas Jefferson, who said on September 28, 1820:

"You consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the DESPOTISM of an oligarchy…

“Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so...and their power (is) the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control…The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party, its members would become DESPOTS." (Stated in a letter to William Jarvis, Sept. 28, 1820)(1)

Unfortunately, Jefferson’s warning proved to be all too accurate. Sixty-plus years ago, the progressive, liberal left in America decided the best way, possibly the only way, to impose their will on the American people was not at the ballot box or through a legislature; it was through the Supreme Court. The inappropriate belief that the Supreme Court had supreme power over all would allow only five unelected people on the bench to impose and enforce their will over 300,000,000 Americans.

Five people.

Only five individuals were needed to remove God and His principles from American schools, government, and the public square. They could trample on constitutional rights, make the right to murder babies the law of the land, and overrule the will of the people in 30 states, who agreed with God that marriage was between one man and one woman. No entity or group has allowed more evil into America than the Supreme Court. Despotism, indeed.

On June 26, 2015, five Justices decided they had the right to redefine a 6000-year-old definition of marriage - one clearly given by God, mind you, and defining a covenant He instituted! Just let that sink in: five people (two of whom had participated in gay wedding ceremonies, yet refused to recuse themselves), arrogantly granted themselves the “authority” to overrule God…and the American people. The deception and arrogance of this is mind numbing.

Regarding this, Justice Alito said:

"Today's decision usurps the constitutional right of the people to decide whether to keep or alter the traditional understanding of marriage...

“All Americans, whatever they’re thinking on that issue, should worry about what the majority's claim of power portends."(2)

The late Justice Scalia said:

"I write separately to call attention to this Court's threat to American democracy... Today's decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court...

“This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776 - the freedom to govern themselves…To allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation."(3)

Praying for the Supreme Court

On my first visit to the Supreme Court 30 years ago, I heard Holy Spirit say, as clearly as I have ever heard Him speak to me, “Now I am going to show you where the strong man over America lives.” The words “strong man” were taken from the passage of Scripture in Matthew 12:29 and Mark 3:27. This did not mean that all of the Justices were evil, or that the institution itself was evil. It meant that satan had established a stronghold there from which to implement his plans and control our nation. Part of my assignment since that day has been to see the stronghold broken.

Many others have been assigned this task, as well, and not just through prayer. Numerous leaders have worked tirelessly to oppose the Court’s control, and to seat appropriate Justices on the bench. Wise Justices have opposed this despotism from the bench itself, as illustrated by the words of Alito and Scalia. I believe we are making significant progress in expelling the strong man. The Dobbs decision, June 24, 2022, is but one indicator of this.

Several weeks ago, I was invited to participate in a prayer event in D.C., hosted by Phillip Jauregui and his Judicial Action Group (JAG). The timing was the opening day of the new term of the Court. The purpose was to pray for all nine Justices, doing so with heartfelt love and compassion. The specific phrase used as the goal of our prayers was “Consecrate the Supreme Court.” Mr. Jauregui felt that Holy Spirit gave him this phrase and assignment.

The language is unique; I had never before heard this or any similar phrase used in the context of prayer for the Court. My first impression was actually the need to discern whether or not he had truly heard from Holy Spirit. Jauregui also was wisely and humbly seeking counsel from others as to whether or not this was appropriate, something the Lord would lead us to do. I sensed almost immediately and very strongly that it was.

I have studied and understand the word “consecrate,” with an awareness of what doing this would indicate. This understanding made the assignment extremely significant to me, and I believe it will for you also. The primary Hebrew word for “consecrate” in Scripture is qadash,(4) also translated as “sanctify.” Another Hebrew word used for consecrate is nazar/nazir.(5)

Both Hebrew words have in their primary meaning the concept of separation. Whereas nazar emphasizes more the concept of separation from, as in a Nazarite vow (don’t do or touch certain things), qadash emphasizes separation unto, as in separation unto the Lord. Qadash is the dedication of a person or thing to God and His purposes. In Scripture, many things were separated unto the Lord: people, places, items (in the temple), clothing (of the priests), days, and even events, such as fasts.

Typically, when God was about to do something significant in the life of Israel, He told the people to consecrate (qadash) themselves to Him (Exodus 19:10, Joshua 3:5, Joel 2:12-32). In doing so, He was saying, “Come to Me; separate yourselves unto Me; I need for you to draw near, dedicating yourselves to Me…at a heart level.” Yahweh wanted THEM, their hearts, not animal sacrifices. The sacrifices were only to prepare the way for the people to draw near to Him. He wanted a relationship and partnership with them.

Re-dedicate the Court

I knew that when God said to re-dedicate or consecrate (qadash) the Court to Him, this meant He wanted to do something very significant in this branch of our government. It meant that necessary things had taken place - prayers, repentance, actions, and other influences - that would allow this institution to be re-dedicated to Him, and also to the purposes for which it was established.

Obviously, that does not mean the Supreme Court will become a religious institution or be controlled by a religious group. It would mean that God’s intent for institutions of government can now be fulfilled through them. The concept and function of government flow to us from God (Isaiah 33:22), whether in a home, a city, or a nation; and I am confident this is exactly what our Founders intended. They wanted our government to rule “under God”: with His authority and heart, implementing His precepts and laws, ensuring liberty and justice in America.

Simply stated, for God to say, “Consecrate the Supreme Court,” would have to mean we have reached a point where He can shift it back into an institution that honors Him; and into one that honors the original intent for which it was established. This does not imply that those on the Court will be perfect, any more than those in ancient Israel who were separated unto the Lord became perfect or sinless. Nor does it mean the change of which I speak will happen immediately. But it does mean we have reached another phase in the process of shifting the Supreme Court.

Keep praying, my friend. The “Foreword” is being restored.

Pray with me:

Father, we in America have taken many of the blessings You gave us and defiled them. Like the prodigal son, we have squandered Your prosperity, using it to satisfy our lusts. We have used our liberties and freedoms to satisfy our flesh. We have distorted and twisted the great Constitution You gave us, turning it into a meaningless piece of paper. And we have abandoned the purpose for which You created America: partnering with You to save the world. Many Americans have repented of these things, and we continue to humble ourselves before You in repentance.

We turn our attention today to the Supreme Court of America. Through this institution, we have rejected You, life, the covenant of marriage You established, and more. We have arrogantly ruled against You, and we have paid for this rebellion with the loss of tens of millions of Americans. Today, we repent and ask for Your mercy. The blood of Jesus was sprinkled on a “Mercy Seat,” and we ask for this mercy.

We also join our prayers today with the powerful prayers issued just a few nights ago in Washington, D.C., consecrating this Court once again to You. YOU birthed America and our government. YOU instituted all government. We call the Court back under YOUR plans, purposes, precepts, and laws. We dedicate the Supreme Court to YOU and ask that You change all that needs changing. Turn hearts that need turning, and fill this branch of government and its building with Your presence once again. We ask all of this in the holy and all-powerful name of Yeshua. Amen.

Our decree:

We decree that the Supreme Court of the United States is once again consecrated and dedicated to Almighty God, Creator and Owner of all the earth.
