“War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon.
The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.” (Revelation 12)
Everyone knows the real issue in the hot mess of Kavanaugh’s nomination for supreme court boils down to Roe vs. Wade. On one of the news channels, if you looked closely, you could see the seven heads of the ten horns of Dragon. If you looked even closer, you couldn’t help but notice the woman clothed like the Sun fighting for the rights of the unborn. We we were in heaven’s courtroom, The ancient of Days is sitting on the throne. Even though America is in the midst of a civil war, God sits on His throne (Psalm 2).
What should serious Christians do during a time like this?
Instead of shaking our fingers at the opposition, we should learn from Kavanaugh’s daughter and pray for our enemies. There are 14 senators who refer to themselves as Catholic and yet support abortion. They deserve our loving prayers:
Maria Cantwell – Washington; Susan Collins -Maine; Dick Durbin – Illinois; Kirsten Gillibrand – New York; Heidi Heitkamp – North Dakota;Tim Kaine – Virginia; Patrick Leahy – Vermont; Ed Markey – Massachusetts; Catherine Cortez Masto – Nevada; Claire McCaskill – Missouri; Bob Menendez – New Jersey; Lisa Murkowski – Alaska; Patty Murray – Washington;Jack Reed – Rhode Island
Psalm 138 looks forward to this day where all the “Senators” and “Congressman” of the earth shall give thanks to you, O LORD.”
“They conquered him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death.” (The Apostle John, Rev 12).
Next, the Church must speak the truth in love. It’s rare in politics or religion when a person speaks truth without a personal agenda. Jesus recognized it in the apostle, Nathaniel (cf. John 1:47, “Here is a true child of Israel. There is no duplicity in him.”)
How many politicians or religious leaders do you know like Nathaniel?
Who is today’s Nathaniel? If you look closely, we they speak, you will see heaven opened. They may lose their life (like Stephen in Acts 6) or we might witness heaven open up and bless the U.S.A.
