Whereas in years past we all took time to remember the freedoms that we in America possess, this year, 2015, we, as a Christian people in this nation must mourn in heartfelt grief over the recent ruling the Supreme Court has made against the traditional and accepted definition of marriage.
When Kristallnacht occurred in Nazi Germany and Austria on November 9th and 10th, in 1938, Jewish businesses and homes were destroyed resulting in broken windows and destruction. A German father took his young son down through the destruction afterwards and with tear stained eyes and voice told his son, “We should not have touched God’s people.”
The terrible judgments that are about to be unleashed upon America will not be restrained. There is a veritable price tag that will not be measured in mere currency that our nation will pay.
In Isaiah 59 we read, “Therefore justice is far from us, nor does righteousness overtake us; we look for light but there is darkness! For brightness, but we walk in blackness!” As we look at vs. 15 and 16, Isaiah declares, “So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. (Italics added.) Then the Lord saw it and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor…..”
Russian dissident and renowned author, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, said that the downfall of America, and many cultures, will be because they have forgotten God (as they had done in Russia), and abandoned their love for Him.
Historically, the Warren Court (Supreme Court), largely appointed by former President Harry S. Truman, was responsible for the removal of prayer from the public sector (schools), and the removal of all bible references. That wicked court was also responsible for the unconstitutional creation of laws that led to the death of millions of aborted fetuses and babies. (1973) Make no mistake about it, the Supreme Court does not sit to make laws….that responsibility the constitution set aside to the Legislative Branch of our government.
Saul of Tarsus, on the road to Damascus (in Acts 9), to incarcerate Christians, is met by the Lord Jesus Christ who says to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” Saul answered, “Who are you Lord?” Jesus tells him who He is and tells him, when you touch My people (the church)…you touch Me.
Coming back to the German father’s tearful comment to his young son, “We should not have touched God’s people.”
Christian, our hearts should be broken over this total disregard to the values that have been passed on to us through the millenniums of history.
July 4th, 2015….A Day of Mourning for America!
