Think on this: “Judge for your self whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God. For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:19-20)
Pray on this: Grant your people grace and strength to live by their conscience as guided by your Word and the Holy Spirit, regardless of the price that godless decision makers may demand. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
Jim, as usual your report was great. I have one comment. As so many evangelicals have “left the narrow road”,
perhaps we need to use “true Believers” to describe those of us that live by God’s Word to the best of our ability
and with His everlasting help.
My Dear Brother Jim, two of the justices violated federal law by not recusing themselves. These two were not impartial to the case, as required. Justice Elena Kagan and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had officiated homosexual weddings prior to the marriage ruling, publically supporting it. The marriage ruling should legally be 4-3 FOR marriage, not 5-4 against it.
God help our goverment. Supreme Court Rule 44 allows a party to file a Motion for Rehearing within 25 days of the June 26 hearing. Please contact your states Attorney General to file for a Rehearing the marriage case on the grounds that the two justices violated federal law by not recusing themselves. PLEASE! as Americans, if you believe marriage is between One man and One woman, let’s get busy and start calling your Attorney General’s now, it only took me 5 minutes.
Jim in Cincinnati, Ohio
Jim; If the secular world want to follow the Supreme Court ruling then so be it. Satan is behind all of this evil because he knows his time is short. There is another Supreme Court whose decisions are final. ‘But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death’.Rev 21:8. We know in the end which Supreme Court has the victory.
Does not Romans 1:18 make this very clear? In this case we must remember Romans 1:24 too and not be
surprised that these things are happening. It has nothing to do with “statements” of a state. This is about people who maybe never are reading the Bible, in it’s full contempt in court.
Another Kingdom is coming, which is not of this world.
When man’s law condones what God’s law condemns, believers have the spiritual authority found in the Word of God to disobey man’s law. Examples of this are found in Hebrews 11:23 and Exodus 1:17-21 when Moses was hidden by the King of Egypt’s midwives and not killed and God blessed those midwives; Daniel 6:10 when Daniel disobeyed the King’s law and prayed openly and was blessed; Matthew 2:7-8 when the 3 wise men disobeyed Herod and did not tell him where the baby Jesus was to be found. In all these instances, man disobeyed man’s law and they were blessed by God. The couple in Oregon facing heavy fines for not baking a wedding cake for 2 homosexuals are experiencing tribulation that God says will follow those who follow Him. As soldiers in the army of the living God, we must endure hardness and suffer as Christ suffered. If we endure to the end, we are promised the Crown of Life. That is our choice as authentic Christians. Most of the world is on the broad path to destruction, but God has called us to come out from them.
