Psalm 11:1-3 states, "In the LORD I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, ‘Flee as a bird to your mountain’? For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly (in darkness) at the upright in heart. If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?" For nearly two generations we have seen the foundations "secretly" chiseled on until they are progressively being removed. By the "foundations" I mean the work of the Supreme Court to remove biblical barriers barring abortion and the homosexual agenda. This activity invites Divine judgment!
George Washington said it this way, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports." John Adams made it real clear concerning Christianity when he said, "Our constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other." Daniel Webster made it clear how his generation thought when he said, "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our nation will go on prospering." Even in 1892 Justice David Brewer said, "There is a universal language pervading them all, having one meaning; they affirm and reaffirm that this is a religious nation." Justice William Rehnquist, one of only three clearly-thinking Justices on the current Supreme Court, said, "The secular application of the Ten Commandments is clearly seen in its adoption as the fundamental legal code of Western civilization and the common law of the United States."
How is it that we have Justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was formerly chief counsel for the ACLU, and who once argued the civil right of polygamy, joining with four other Justices to remove the foundations of the Christian faith and bar displaying the Ten Commandments? Justice Ginsburg recently voted to invalidate the Texas Sodomy Law and would obviously put homosexual marriage to the forefront as a Constitutional right – not to mention championing abortion and pornography as free speech!
The Psalmist asked the question that has to be answered by our generation, "If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?" The first thing the righteous can do is respond faithfully to Hebrews 10:19-22 which says, "Therefore, brethren having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water."
When we go into the Throne Room we have one thing to declare before the Creator of the heavens and the earth. It should sound like this, "Father, in the Name of Jesus, according to Your covenant of sure mercy, have mercy on America, retire Justice Ginsburg and save our nation from the continual removing of foundations. Have mercy on this land. Hear the innocent cries of the millions of murdered babies that Justice Ginsburg has sanctioned and retire her as only You can. Father, I remind You that You gave us a covenant of sure mercy and in that covenant You said in Second Samuel 7:9, ‘And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and have cut off all your enemies from before you.’ Father, in the Name of Jesus have mercy on America and retire Justice Ginsburg. I thank You for it! I expect it and I am calling it forth in Jesus Name!"
When the Church takes the covenant of sure mercy into the Throne Room and demands as David did that God have covenant mercy on us, that means He deals with the enemy as only He can. This is how you and I individually in prayer can help restore the foundations of our nation. When we take a covenantal stand in the Throne Room we put it in God’s hands. He is the One who invited us to do this and He will move in our behalf. In Luke 18:8 Jesus rhetorically asked, if when He returned He would find this kind of faith. Let the OUTCRY come from the Church and watch God remove and reshape the Supreme Court.
