Brothers and sisters, could June 2022 be our generation’s Purim?
In ancient Persia, Queen Esther called a three-day national fast. The Jews fasted and prayed, and were delivered from the murderous hands of Haman. Every year, Adar 14, is recognized as a day or feasting and celebration, as centuries later, the Jewish people remember their day of deliverance and how the mighty hand of Yahweh saved them from annihilation.
Perhaps now it is our turn! According to Forbes, the now conservative leaning “…U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case concerning Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban on December 1, the court announced Monday, potentially paving the way for abortion rights in the U.S. to be severely restricted as the case could result in Roe v. Wade being significantly weakened or overturned.”
Yes, you read that last line right. OVERTURNED.
Here are some KEY FACTS (taken directly from the Forbes.com website).
- The case, Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health, concerns Mississippi’s abortion ban and the broader question of whether abortions before a fetus is viable are constitutional, as the court’s precedent in Roe v. Wade stipulates they are.
- Mississippi’s law bans all abortions after 15 weeks except in cases of medical emergencies and “severe fetal abnormalities,” and was struck down by the lower courts after being first passed in 2018.
- Mississippi has expressly askedthe court to overturn Roe v. Wade, claiming in a court filing the landmark 1973 ruling is “egregiously wrong.”
- The case has attracted national attention for its potential nationwide effects, with 12 GOP governors askingthe court to rule in Mississippi’s favor so that they can be free to impose their own state-level abortion restrictions.
- Nearly 900 state lawmakers from 45 states askedthe court in a filing Monday to instead rule against Mississippi and uphold Roe v. Wade, arguing there will be “disastrous consequences” should the abortion restrictions be upheld, allowing other states to follow suit with their own abortion bans.
- Though the court will hear arguments in December, it will likely take months for the justices to rule on the case, with a ruling expected only at some point before the court’s term wraps up in June 2022.
This gives us 6-7 months to repent, fast, pray, and intercede on behalf of the nation and on behalf of the pre-born. Remember, this is not merely a political agenda, this is spiritual warfare. This is the pouring out of the spirit of Molech upon our nation. The United States cannot recover from its current state of disintegration as a nation unless we repent and make ourselves right with God Almighty.
TIME TO CLEAN UP THE DUNG
Deuteronomy 23:12-14 says, “You shall also have a place outside the camp and go out there, and you shall have a spade among your tools, and it shall be when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and shall turn to cover up your excrement. Since the Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to defeat your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy; and He must not see anything indecent among you or He will turn away from you.”
God promises to deliver us and to defeat our enemies before us…but our part of the bargain is we must remove the dung from the camp. The dung in this case is the spilled blood of millions of innocent babies, legally murdered at the hands of “doctors” and “medical facilities.”
In order to remove the dung from the camp, we must not only repent, pursue holiness, and walk in covenant with Our God, but we must also acknowledge and pray against the very real presence of Molech who is still alive and well, and whose ovens are still being stoked and fed by the elites and politicians and the ruling class of our nation.
Put a note on your fridge, computer screen, or Bible. Be praying fervently for December 1st, the U.S. Supreme Court justices, and this historical decision. Pray for a Purim opportunity for our generation—a day forever stamped on the calendar of the ages as a day in our lifetime when the God of Heaven came down and fought on our behalf and smote our enemies before us. May we, like Miriam, have our chance to grab our timbrels and sing songs of deliverance to our children and to our children’s children.
