(In the case of Dobbs vs Jackson Williams Health…)
Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees, and the writers who keep writing oppression, to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of My people of their right… For all this His anger has not turned away, and His hand is stretched out still. (Isaiah 10:1-4)
While in prayer for this landmark case, I felt the extreme weight of the Lord’s heart and a fierce resolve in His Spirit. I knew this moment was a mark in time – but one that had already come at great cost. I knew it was His hand that was about to settle this decision…
I heard the Lord’s determination that the judgement in this court is not a decision for the unborn, for that decision has already been rendered in the courts of heaven. The people have cried out and repentance has been heard. God’s Word has been declared and the verdict has been rendered. The shedding of innocent blood will no longer be allowed to stain the ground of this nation.
What is being determined in this case is the fate of these justices who now stand before the Righteous Judge of all men. Eternity is recording each of their decisions for their choices will determine the course of their future. For all the previous decisions rendered that have condemned the innocent to death, this court must now answer for its crimes. It is not the merits of this case that are in question. It is these justices who are being weighed in the balance. It is these justices who are being examined and judged. They have been found wanting and given warning with time to repent for their defiant edicts. They must now choose – life, or death.
In heaven’s eyes, they can no longer speak for the innocent. Because they have exercised duplicity and corrupted God’s laws, they have lost that right to determine the course of future generations. The people of God have proven their case. The pleas of righteous intercession have been heard. Sin has been confessed and repentance for past iniquities have been accounted for. These justices must now answer for theirs.
Heaven’s court is now in session and issues this charge to the highest court in the land: “The Fear of the Lord is at the bench and the gavel is about to fall. Choose you this day whom you will serve! It is not the fate of the unborn that is in the balance – but yours!”
Can wicked rulers be allied with you, those who frame injustice by statute? They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the LORD has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge. He will bring back on them their iniquity and wipe them out for their wickedness; the LORD our God will wipe them out. (Psalms 94:20-23)
