His Truth is Marching On

By Missey Butler

CBN.com -- When a person is called upon to testify before the court, he or she is instructed to place a hand on the Bible and give an answer to the following words, “Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth… so help you God? And, of course, the anticipated response is always “I do.” This is rightfully so, as a sworn oath has just been entered upon and an expected testimony of truth should be forthcoming.

Aren’t you glad that we serve a God who cannot lie? Every word that He speaks is absolute truth. In fact, when He takes an oath, He takes it unto Himself. That’s how reliable His Word is.

When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself (Hebrews 6:13, NIV).

The bottom line is, GOD IS THE BOTTOM LINE. Whatever He says, you can count on Him to do it. You can take it to the bank.

There is one particular portion of Scripture that is very fitting to close out our 31 days of prayer for the reformation of the Supreme Court, and it is found in the Book of Isaiah, chapter 65, beginning at verse 16:

“Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the God of truth; he who takes an oath in the land will swear by the God of truth. For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes. Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more” (Isaiah 65:16-19, NIV).

We will continue to pray that the heart of every justice that rules within the highest court will reverently yield to the voice of the Lord. The future of our country depends upon it!

A very telling lyric from the famous "Battle Hymn of the Republic" states, “He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat.” And we believe that is exactly what is taking place even now as God searches the deep recesses of those whom He has hand-picked to serve in these positions. As the song further states, “I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamp ... Glory, glory, hallelujah!”

And that is exactly how we choose to end this season of divine intercession, with the knowledge and assurance that God has heard our petitions and is sending forth His justices. So it is with great confidence and boldness that we can proclaim that His truth is surely ‘marching on.’

And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear (Isaiah 65:24, KJV).
