But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. (1 Cor 7:2)

A U.S. court on Monday ruled the Trump administration could not enforce an updated policy barring certain transgender people from serving in the U.S. military, becoming the second court in the country to rule against the government since it unveiled the policy in March.

President Donald Trump announced on March 23 that he would endorse a plan by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to restrict the military service of transgender people who experience a condition called gender dysphoria. The policy replaced an outright ban on transgender service members that Trump announced last year on Twitter, citing concern over military focus and medical costs.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly in Washington denied a request by the administration to lift an injunction she had issued against Trump’s original ban….

The administration argued that the new policy, which also bars anyone who requires or has undergone gender transition, was no longer a categorical ban.

Kollar-Kotelly disagreed. The new policy effectively implements the original ban “by targeting proxies of transgender status, such as ‘gender dysphoria’ and ‘gender transition,’ and by requiring all service members to serve ‘in their biological sex,’” she wrote in Monday’s ruling.

The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment….

Monday’s ruling came in a lawsuit filed last August by several aspiring service troops and current members of the U.S. Army, Air Force and Coast Guard. Last October, Kollar-Kotelly ruled that the original ban likely violated the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law….

Trump’s ban reversed Democratic former President Barack Obama’s policy of allowing transgender troops to serve openly and receive medical care to transition genders….

The new Trump policy exempts those diagnosed with gender dysphoria during the Obama policy, allowing them to remain in the military and serve according to their gender identity. (Excerpts from Andrew Chung’s article in Reuters)

Amen! We have so many leaders who also need this prayer. I pray that God sheds his grace and patience to our country. Too our world for that matter. Christians unite and spread the word of God to those who need him. 🙏🏼

Abba Father, I am once again amazed by how judges reinterpret the original meaning of the U.S. Constitution that You inspired our Founding Fathers to construct to govern us. “Woe to them that call evil good and good evil.” Isaiah 5:20-21 Many times I am reminded of a different whoa, the one which is used to halt a horse. This sinful yeast in our nation must stop. It will not stop by power, nor might, but by Your Spirit so please unite Your Church to godly repentance. Those who are opposing the truth of Galatians 5:19-26 just don’t understand the things of the Spirit. They need the spiritual scales removed from their eyes.

I ask You to bless U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly by placing a Hedge of Thronbushes around her so she can no loner hear the lies of Satan. Bless her with a Thirst for Living Water. Bless her with Laborers that will witness to her in both actions and words. Bless her with conviction of her sins. Bless her with a desire to have godly repentance. Bless her with a supernatural encounter with the Living God. Bless her with a desire to have a relationship with God through Yeshua my Savior. Finally, Abba Father, bless her with prayer warriors who will intercede for her lost soul. We want her to be a changed person and be called a Child of God. Your words do not come back void.

I ask all these blessings for her through the authority given to me by Yeshua Hamachiah. So be it by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh.
