Supreme Court: Not One but THREE Strikes!

three_strikesMost are aware of the recent decision by the Supreme Court on the issue of same-sex marriage, but many may not realize that this was only one of the history-making decisions reached this session.

This past month, the Supreme Court determined that the word "Israel" cannot be listed next to the word "Jerusalem" on an American-Israeli passport. Secondly, the Supreme Court rejected an appeal from North Carolina to revive a requirement that abortion providers must show an ultrasound to a pregnant woman before she has an abortion. Last but not least, the Supreme Court declared that the biblical institution of marriage was not between just a man and a woman.

This means that in only one month's time, the Supreme Court came against Jerusalem (strike one), failed to defend the unborn (strike two) and to top it all off, came against holy matrimony (strike three and you're OUT)!

The apostle Paul writes “Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did.” [1 Corinthians 10:6].

The prophet Jeremiah spells out in verse 5:9 and in verse 29, "Shall I not punish them for these things? declares the LORD; and shall I not avenge myself on a nation such as this?"

These are the characteristics of a nation rebuked harshly by the Lord.

  • Men say, “As the Lord lives,” yet they swear falsely (Jeremiah 5:2)
  • Refused to repent (Jeremiah 5:3)
  • Mighty men did not execute God's justice (Jeremiah 5:5)
  • Children have forsaken God (Jeremiah 5:7)
  • Despite being fed to the full, they committed adultery as each lusted for their neighbor's wife (Jeremiah 5:8)
  • They have grown fat and sleek (Jeremiah 5:27)
  • They know no bounds in deeds of evil (Jeremiah 5:28)
  • They judge not with justice and do not defend the innocent (Jeremiah 5:28)

Then, with much conviction, Jeremiah asks, "Shall I not punish them for these things? declares the LORD, and shall I not avenge myself on a nation such as this?" An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes? (Jer 5:29-31)

All that said, in the midst of this passage is a blessing. "For these things happened to the nation of Israel to PRUNE it so it could once again PRODUCE FRUIT!

"Go up through her vine rows and destroy, but make not a full end; strip away her branches, for they are not the LORD's." (Jeremiah 5:10)

Whatever judgment may come, I hope that it will be done in such a way, that America may once again be fruitful.

Our God is merciful.

Update: The Supreme Court failed to protect the unborn again, as it ruled to keep Texas abortion clinics open.

  1. George thank you for staying keenly aware of how rapidly America is escalating into decline, and I hang my head in shame and defeat. I feal a deep blow from behind, how suttle and deceptive. America has fallen asleep and become complacent. But, nevertheless, God is still in our midst, and he will be victorious.

  2. A Major Shift in things, on a multitude of levels … will follow … as a result of these Decisions. Seek God and become an Instrument of .. "Focused PRAYER."

    “Father God, help us to be faithful, steadfast, and immovable in the days ahead.
    Let us watch and pray that we, and all those we lift up before You, will be counted worthy to escape the things that are about to come upon the earth. We realize that unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

    May we each realize who we are in Christ and that the world in which we live is formed and shaped by the thoughts and words we speak. Therefore, Oh Lord, grant unto Your servants great boldness in preaching Your Word!

    Stretch out Your Hand with healing power, and may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the Name of Yeshua HaMaschiah, (Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior), as we align ourselves with Your Holy Spirit in praying for others!

    May the fruitful results of this prayer include repentance, restoration, empowerment, and the equipping and protection of others, in life changing ways.

    In conclusion, Father God, we also ask that Your Perfect Peace, would rule and reign in the hearts of Your servants, not only as the storm approaches, but also in the midst of its fury … and We Thank You for Hearing our Prayer."

    May the God we Serve Together, Continue to Richly Bless, Protect and Prosper Both You and Family.

  3. Amen~!

    "I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images." Isaiah 42:8

    Jesus IS LORD

    "Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost." 1 Corinthians 12:3

  4. Hello George,I'm overwhelmed by these recent events taken place in our country,may God have mercy on us,we must as a nation turn back to God or face the reality of what is to come!

  5. Jeremiah 7:23 NASB
    But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.'

  6. Who ever said that America is not in prophecy?

    "How the hammer of the earth has been cut off and broken! How Babel has become a ruin among the nations!
    I have laid a snare for you, and you were captured, O Babel, and you yourself did not know! You have been found and also caught, because you strove against YHVH."

    This nation has fallen into the snares and traps on it's own decisions. Now it will have to stand before the Almighty Judge. May G-d have mercy. It's time to FLEE!
