Some of us are ecstatic; others are angry. The following quotes make clear the vast distinctions between the pro-life and pro-abortion camps in America:
“This is a great day in American history, especially for the millions of children whose innocent lives will be spared from the horrors of abortion in the years to come. For too long Roe V. Wade has poisoned our courts, our culture, and our laws. Today’s decision corrects the grave constitutional error of Roe v. Wade - and finally gives the American people, through their elected representatives, the power to fix America’s extreme abortion laws and enshrine protections for the unborn in law,” says Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts. (1)
Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins said, “The injustice of Roe has finally come to an end, and the momentum to protect life in law is finally on the side of innocent preborn children, and their mothers who deserve our help. Roe v. Wade has been a cancer…resulting in more than 63 million deaths. Today, the court has cut it out and that’s a win. Now we get back to building up a healthy society, affirming life for women and their children - born and preborn.” (2)
Rev. Franklin Graham stated, “The United States Supreme Court just announced one of the most significant rulings in my lifetime - officially voting to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision [which] was ‘egregiously wrong from the start,’ as stated by Justice Samuel Alito.” (3)
Dr. Alveda King shares, “I have longed for and fought for this day. A giant victory for the moment, but much work is yet to be done! I will continue to fight for human dignity for everyone - from the womb to the tomb.” (4)
Former President Barack Obama tweeted, “Today, the Supreme Court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision someone can make to the whims of politicians and ideologues - attacking the essential freedom of millions of Americans.” (5)
“Today is one of the darkest days our country has ever seen,” says Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. “American women are having their rights taken by 5 unelected Justices on the extremist MAGA court…These justices - appointed by Republicans and presiding without accountability - have stolen the fundamental right to abortion.” (7)
And last but not least, written on t-shirts and placards being worn and held by young adults standing in front of the Supreme court, were the words, “I am the Post-Roe Generation.” (8)
I have been very vocal about where I stand on abortion, as well as the need for the church to be engaged in prayer, voting, and other activities in order to end this evil. The Dobbs ruling did NOT end abortion in America - it simply sends the decision back to the states and, therefore, the people - but it was a GREAT victory. It ended “Hamon’s” evil decree. (see Esther 3)
Responsibility for sins and the reaping they produce occurs not only on a personal level, but also corporately. “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people,” (Proverbs 14:34). In scripture, judgments for sin occurred in the lives of individuals, but also in nations. Israel was judged several times for their corporate turning away from God. The book of Judges gives multiple examples of this taking place. Here is one of them:
“All that generation also were gathered to their fathers; and there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord, nor yet the work which He had done for Israel. Then the sons of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals, and they forsook the Lord, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods from among the gods of the peoples who were around them, and bowed themselves down to them; thus they provoked the Lord to anger. So they forsook the Lord and served Baal and the Ashtaroth. The anger of the Lord burned against Israel, and He gave them into the hands of plunderers who plundered them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies around them, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies. Wherever they went, the hand of the Lord was against them for evil, as the Lord had spoken and as the Lord had sworn to them, so that they were severely distressed.” (Judges 2:10-15; NASB)
Since the 1990s, I have been saying the “strong man” over America (see Matthew 12:29), Baal, lives at the Supreme Court. I’ve stated that they have opened the door for more evil to flow into America than any other group or authority. The evil and destruction their decisions have created are, quite literally, immeasurable. Not only have these rulings resulted in tens of millions of murders, but also of a consequent culture of death in America. Add to this other rulings that reject God’s (and the Scripture’s) influence, break His laws and redefine His covenants (marriage) - and the devastation has been unfathomable. In every presidential election of the past 30 years, I’ve warned that “It’s about the Courts.” Why? The president appoints the Supreme Court Justices and Federal Judges.
The election of Donald Trump caused a major shift and breakthrough in this regard. He appointed 3 conservative, Constitutionalist, pro-life Justices. The result: with the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe, a law/decree that brought devastating judgments on us as a nation has been canceled. This will now allow national cleansing to occur and permit the fruit of righteousness to flow down on our nation, at least in this regard. America’s most egregious sin - this national law/decree legalizing the murder of babies - has been reversed and our covenant with death has been broken (see Isaiah 28:18). This reversal is the first and most important step toward the ending of the death culture in America. The church should begin to pray for the ending of murders, including mass shootings. Our prayers will now have more influence in this regard.
Also, I believe the Lord recently spoke to me that the ending of Roe will now allow Him to deal with states on an individual basis rather than the entire nation. The states that stand for life will experience blessing; those whose leaders harden their hearts will not. HOWEVER, I also believe I heard Him say that the people who stand for life in pro-abortion states can be covered, protected, and blessed.
And I believe I heard one more thing: as an individual state’s cup of iniquity becomes full (Genesis 15:16), He will begin judging and removing those in its government who make the evil laws. God wants to redeem people, not judge them. He can judge the wicked while blessing the righteous. He can send revival to a state while removing deterrents, including people. The judgment of evil leaders and systems will be salvation and blessing to many people. We must pray for this to occur in states whose governments are now pro-death.
So, my praying friend, while Goliath’s head was indeed cut off, we must persist and not grow weary until abortion in America is only in our history books.
Pray with me:
Father, thank You for hearing our prayers and enabling America to reverse the evil, evil decree of Roe. We know it is not the end of the journey. We realize that millions of hearts will have to change through the coming awakening, causing a reformation of laws and actions, in order to see this shedding of innocent blood stop. We are praying toward this end and we know we are praying Your will. But for this incredible breakthrough, the reversing of Haman‘s evil decree, we thank You.
We pray that the cleansing from this sin will cause a heightened level of revelation, opening the eyes of people to the evil of abortion. We pray that it will cause the hold of the spirit of death to be broken off of our nation, resulting in fewer murders and suicides. We pray that as the cups of iniquity continue to fill for unrighteous government officials, You will remove them from their positions and free the people from their unrighteous rule. Send revival to liberal, leftist strongholds!
And we pray that the minds of the young generation of Americans - those who have been indoctrinated by ungodly educators and leaders - would be freed supernaturally fast through the coming revival. This generation is destined to experience and participate in the greatest revival in history. We pray now for their liberation and the shift of their paradigms to come quickly. Save and deliver them, we pray, in the mighty name of Jesus!
We declare, with grateful hearts, that we are “the Post-Roe Generation.”
