Order in the Court!
We’ve all witnessed the scene many times. An irate Judge slams down his wooden gavel and with a voice of fiery indignation shouts “Order in the court! Order in the court!
That appointed judge carries within his title, the power and authority vested to him by way of the office that he holds. Therefore, all subjects who might attempt to challenge that authority, are quickly reprimanded by a possible charge of contempt.
So it is with our Divine Judge. Our God is a God of perfect order, and there is nothing that He does that is contrary to His perfect will for us individually, or for us as a Nation.
In this decisive hour, a trumpet is being sounded, a voice of urgency is even now, moving swiftly across our land. Those who have ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying are more and more uniting together in one accord.
Like good soldiers of the cross, Christians are falling in line, standing at attention ready to receive instruction from their company commander. More and more, a rallying force of believers are coming together with united hearts and like minds, fervently praying and interceding for God’s mantle of righteousness to again be restored to our Judiciary.
The Great Judge of the universe Himself is about to lower His gavel and bring forth the mandate that there will be “Order in the court!”
As a nation we pray that His righteous standard will be held high, fixed and immovable within our judicial system. We pray that the cry for godly justices will be heard loudly within the chambers of the highest court in our land, and that a spirit of the fear of the Lord will settle upon the hearts of those dignitaries who even now serve as the Supreme Court. We pray that the balance of powers will once again shift into their rightful positions and be forever maintained by HIS divine scales of justice, and His alone!
We as a nation are blessed and privileged to live within the boundary of our shores, as a free democracy. But many times because of that democratic mindset, we lose sight of the fact that we, who are called by His name, are subject to the dictates of the King and His Kingdom! Thereby, we as a governing body are to submit ourselves to His rule and not to our own set of laws. The scriptures remind us: “But it is God who judges: He brings one down, and exalts another. (Psalm 75:7). The structural foundation of the Kingdom realm, is one of perfect rank and perfect order. That is why, we must humble ourselves, submit our lives, our nation, and our judges to the rule and reign of His Lordship. We can confidently rest in the knowledge and the assurance that by His authority, He will bring about His righteous sentencing when He decrees forth that: “There will be…ORDER IN THE COURT!
The Lord says: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet. The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion; you will rule in the midst of your ememies. Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. (Psalm 110:1-3).
