NJ LEGISLATORS FIGHT TO KEEP RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

Bless you Lord, for your mercy.

Last year we reported on the issue of states that were seeking to eliminate religious freedom when it comes to vaccines and what that might mean for those who believe in God.  We encouraged everyone across the United States to become familiar with this topic through our Special Report. Any time laws are passed to restrict or eliminate the expression of religious freedom should be alarming to all believers, especially intercessors.

Late in 2019, the state of New Jersey became the latest state to aggressively move on legislation to remove religious exemptions from vaccination for individuals attending any educational facility in the state – setting up New Jersey to have one of the most restrictive laws in the nation. Believers in NJ fought back – in prayer, praise and song. People not only from around the country, but across the world fought in prayer with them – because this is a world wide initiative to remove religious freedom in this area.

Thanks to one legislator, when the bill came up for vote in the Senate, it was stalled until after the holiday break – but legislative sponsors and leadership came back fighting after the new year.  Late last week that same senator agreed to support an amended version of the bill allowing private education facilities to determine on their own if they would, or would not, accept a student’s religious exemption.  This measure left NJ special needs students who rely on federally protected educational services through the public school system, as well as students who cannot afford a private education, at risk of losing their placement which alarmed other members of the Senate.

On Monday, thousands of protesters peacefully gathered outside the state capitol at Trenton – praying, praising, blowing shofars, singing, reading Torah and the Bible – God’s people working in unity for the preservation of religious freedom.  State troopers remarked that they had not seen anything like this in over a decade.

According to Romans 13:1, governing authorities are appointed by God and Proverbs 21:1 informs us that He moves the king’s hearts like a river.  These spiritual warriors called on the name of their living, sovereign God to save them, He heard them and a reprieve was granted again at the end of the day.

It’s not over and the legislature still has some time on Tuesday to try again – and bill sponsors, according to this New York Times article are committed to reintroduce the legislation as soon as the next session begins.

No doubt that God will continue to watch over His word to perform it.  He also seems to be watching to observe how the community reacts – will they praise themselves and leaders of men for a job well done or will they continue to thank the Most High God for His saving mercy and grace?  In the case of New Jersey, as soon as the gavel fell on Monday night, outside the protesters beautifully chose to praise God in unity and shouts of “Thank You God!” rang out over and over as seen here.

“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” – Psalm 133:1

New Jersey residents need your support as this fight continues to maintain their first amendment rights. Please pray that God will continue to uphold them with His victorious right hand to preserve their religious freedom and guide the hearts of their legislators in His justice and righteousness. Please pray that the individuals in New Jersey who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, mount up with wings like eagles, run and not be weary, and walk and not faint. Please pray over your own state for the same because we believe this issue will be a hot topic throughout the country this spring – stay alert and be prepared to engage. Most of all sing praises to the Lord for His mercy and sing one of the smallest songs in the Bible this morning for our NJ friends and families which according to 2 Chronicles 20 has the power to rout our enemies: “The steadfast love of Yahweh endures forever.”

  1. Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ precious Name I approach your throne humbly asking you to grant to parents knowledge, strength, and courage in each individual case giving the wisdom needed to make the right choice in their situation. Conflicting opinions, research reports, and on and on place a heavy burden on decision making.
    I pray all parents will submit to the Triune God and have a relationship with Jesus so they can pray, consult and be led to the decision(s) right for them and their beloved children. Thank you for protecting children and families around the world. Without your care and protection, none could stand. Amen.

  2. Along with many parents and grandparents I am praising God that yesterday our NJ State Senate President was forced to pull a bill that would have remove religious freedom from parents who wanted to protect their children from ingredients in the vaccines. God heard our cries and responded with grace and mercy.

    The vaccines produced today are far from safe or effective as we are always told. There are significant risks and when you see the ingredients in them, you will quickly see it does not take a Scientist or doctor degree to be concerned. We all need to do our own research and seek God’s wisdom and grace when we make choices of what to inject into our bodies.

    I pray these events in NJ will result in good fruit. More parents will research and seek God before saying yes to vaccines or any other medications injected into their children. Pharmaceutical companies would do thorough research and provide safe, effective vaccines free of fetal cell lines. They may not be held accountable since they cannot be sued for vaccine injuries, they have not been held accountable by government agencies like the CDC or FDA but the people, the parents are going to continue to be vigilant. Praise God. Truth is being uncovered!!

    Thank you IFA for calling us to pray. Praising God for His faithfulness, grace and mercy.

  3. I totally agree with religious freedom, but at the same time would urge people to think very carefully before refusing vaccination for their children. My beautiful mother, a war widow, contracted measles when she was 38 years old and died a few weeks later as a result of complications. We, her three little children, were left as total orphans.

    1. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. My 20 yr old daughter was permenantly disables from a vaccine at 9 months of age. I think situations like your’s and mine underscores why religious freedom is so important. We have individual walks with Christ and we must do what He commands us, even if unpopular. Sadly, a measles vaccine that could have possibly saved your mother has aborted fetal cell fragments. It’s so unfair that our government gives us so little in the way of religiously clean vaccines. Shalom.

      1. How very, very sad! It is so vital that we get into the habit of consulting GOD before we make medical or any other decisions and stand our ground. We can take nothing for granted! I pray with you that GOD would heal your daughter from the bad effects of that vaccine–With GOD nothing is impossible. Be blessed.

  4. Dearest Father God,
    You have graciously given this country a Constitution that protects religious freedom. I pray that the interpretation of this precious gift is courageously fought for, prayed for, and spoken for. Thank you for inviting us to pray before your holy throne in the name of your Son Jesus Christ. Please help us to persevere in prayer through the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. And thank you for your sovereign and eternal love.
