The Powers That Be
CBN Staff Writer
-- Our nation has been called to a time of consecrated
prayer and fervent intercession, in the hopes of tipping the scales
toward righteous jurisprudence once again.
The judicial pendulum has swung far out of kilter, wielding almost
unlimited power to an oligarchy of nine. These men and women,
robed in black, have the ability to make or break the backbone
of our nation by the simple stroke of a pen. The Supreme Court
was never meant to be the sole arbiter of the law, but rather
an arm of the government where more difficult cases were to be
heard and a decision brought forth, framed within the perimeters
of the Constitution.
Oh how far we have come from where we once used to be! Somehow
we have bought the notion that the Supreme Court, by way of its
name, truly is “supreme.” It’s time to change
our way of thinking. The problem today is that too many of us
have accepted the idea that we must be subservient to the powers
that be, instead of the POWER that IS!
Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding
has no limit. The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked
to the ground (Psalm 147:5-6, NIV).
This day, let it clearly be understood: No matter how grave the
condition of our judicial system may seem to be, our God still
reigns with absolute authority and absolute power.
But the Lord, in His great omniscience, has purposed to have
a people, a holy nation, set apart unto Himself. He has foreordained
an army of believers who will earnestly cry out day and night
with prayers and intercessions -- a remnant who will stand in
the gap and travail until His righteous standard is lifted high
and all evil rulers be brought low, that godliness will once again
prevail within our nation.
So then, who truly are the powers that be? They are none other
than God’s praying generals who know and understand that
their petitions are being heard on high and answered by…the
POWER that IS!
I have seen the wicked in great power: and spreading himself
like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and lo, he has not:
yea, I sought him, but he could not be found (Psalm 37:34-36,
