His Truth is Marching On
-- 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
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
When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no
one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself (Hebrews
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
