Join in prayer, and communion, agreeing for a successful legal challenge to Roe v. Wade.
Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the One who formed you from the womb, “I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, stretching out the heavens by Myself, and spreading out the earth all alone . . .” (Is 44:24, NASB)
This week the U.S. Supreme Court was petitioned by two abortion doctors in Louisiana to block a new state law that will otherwise go into effect this coming Monday. The abortionists are asking for an emergency stay while they make an appeal. The Law at issue, Act 620, requires abortion providers to obtain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic. This will necessitate the closing of one of Louisiana’s three abortion clinics.
Not long ago, an identical law was passed in Texas, but it was subsequently overruled by the Supreme Court in 2016. This time, we have new judges on the bench. Their decision – possibly within the next 24 hours – will not only have an immediate impact on the abortion industry in Louisiana, but it will also give the other states an indication of whether this new Court is ready for Roe V. Wade to begin to be challenged.
Bob Jones warned us years ago that even after getting the right judges in the court, we must not stop praying for them. He expounded on 1 Timothy 2:1-2, explaining how the demonic realm is consistently warring for influence over the men and women in these seats of government. Intercession is needed to maintain the influence of heaven over their lives. The reality is that for God’s justice to prevail in our nation we need a praying remnant presiding in the heavenly court above the Supreme Court.
Along these lines, Chris Berglund had a dream a few nights ago in which a number of God’s people were being summoned to a “mandatory court appearance.” He recognized many of their faces and knew they had served in the heavenly courts before as intercessors for the ending of abortion. In the dream it was now time for the ten sons of Haman to be brought to justice and hung on the gallows (Esther 9:8-10). For these intercessors to gain the inheritance they had labored for over the years, they needed to see it through to the end.
Also in Chris’ dream, he was aware of an evil entity that was aligned with the partaking of the body and blood of the children. In contrast, those who took communion, agreeing with the broken body and shed blood of Jesus, had power over this evil one.
In response to this dream, and knowing that the greatest weapon against darkness is the blood of Jesus, we urge you to gather to the communion table today. Let’s take time to decree the word of the Lord and the influence of the King over the Supreme Court judges – particularly Justices Roberts, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh – that they will align with the God of Justice.
