From Your Pastor's Heart - June 28, 2015

Good Morning Family,

          As I write this, we have just been handed down a “decision” by the Supreme Court of the United States that homosexual marriage shall be the law of the land in all fifty states.  Those five justices holding the wrong view were appointed by both Republican and Democratic Administrations, just for the record.  In actuality, the Supreme Court can say whatever it wants, but God is the Supreme Judge over any and all earthly courts.

          His Word and ruling has been declared on this issue from the Garden of Eden and remains in effect still today.  A majority of justices on our so-called Supreme Court have shaken their fists in the face of God and so has a large portion of Americans on this issue.  While they shake their fists, we must hold up Scripture.

          If you follow these things, you are aware that this is going to have far ranging ripple effects for Christian schools, businesses, churches, and pastors.  If you do not, you had better start.  Our country radically changed Friday morning.  We must continue to pray for our nation, just as we have before this “decision”.  We must also become more active than ever before in our governmental process.  Congress makes law and that is what they should do in response to this act by the Court to reaffirm the Biblical definition of marriage. 

          It is so clear in our system of checks and balances, that the Judicial branch does not make law, the Legislative branch does.  Yet, this is exactly what happened Friday.  The Court has acted in conjunction with efforts from the Executive branch (the Obama administration) and tyrannically created Federal law overreaching the authority of the individual states.   This is a nation of individual states, the United States.  Those leading in the president’s administration and the courts have grossly overreached and place our nation of states in an even more perilous position before The Almighty.

          Folks, we as a church, have some work to do in the coming months as we make some final votes for placement of new faces on a few committees that will shape policy and put into place how we move forward in this even more hostile environment.  Make no mistake, with a Supreme Court decision to now back them up, the forces of the homosexual movement and the progressive liberals will test this new power to its limits in coming months and years to push against the church and Christian based organizations.  We must be prepared for the teachings of the Word of God on this subject to be declared “hate speech” and persecution or prosecution could follow up.

          No matter what man may say, God is still on the throne and is powerful enough to use His people and His Holy Spirit to change lives and hearts in the midst of a wicked and perverse generation.  I am not giving up on God’s power to save the individual from sin nor His power to save our nation!  Each time the Supreme Court sits to hear cases, as the justices enter, the marshal of the court declares, “God save the United States and this Honorable Court!"  I concur. 

          As always, my prayer is that we would all Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”    II Timothy 2:15.          

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve
