are witnessing a momentous and unprecedented moral and spiritual
transformation. A while back, I shared on the Tipping Point.
In the physical realm, once you reach the tipping point, the
dynamics change, the momentum accelerates. One doesn’t need
much effort or force, the
takes on a life of its own. Few things demonstrate this fact as
the recent Supreme Court Non-decision – and it’s
ramifications for America.
Message: The Dark Trinity
autumn, the Supreme Court decided not to take up the cases of several
states appealing the striking down of laws protecting traditional
marriage. By refusing to make a decision on these cases, the Court
was, in essence, making the decision that these laws would be struck
down with no further recourse or hope of reversal.
day this fateful undecision was announced, there were 19 states in
America that had ended the biblical and historic definition of
marriage with the legalization of gay marriage. After the Court
rejected taking up these cases, the number of states ending the
biblical definition of marriage skyrocketed – from 19 to 32. In
the blink of an eye, gay marriage went from the position of a
minority of states – to that of the majority – another tipping
point. In the same blink of an eye, the number of states
upholding the biblical and historic definition of marriage went from
31 to 18 – a distinct minority.
speed at which marriage, gender, and morality has been redefined is
stunning. The Bible gives a very clear prophetic warning
concerning this phenomenon: “Woe to those who call evil
‘good,’ and good ‘evil.’ We are now that people. And
yet we are worse. We are a people who now call what we once
knew to be good ‘evil,’ and what we once knew to be evil ‘good.’
to the exact degree that our culture deems evil to be good, it deems
that which is good to be evil. It is no accident
paralleling this redefining of sin is an equal redefining of
righteousness. Christian bakers who refuse to take part in
celebrating gay marriage are sued, judged guilty by the court,
punished with heavy fines, and driven out of business. As sin
is established as the law of the land, righteousness becomes illegal.
If the present course is not altered the time will come when
Christians are driven from one profession after the other.
are past the tipping point. We live in the days that parallel
those of the prophets, the days of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Elijah.
How do we respond? If we are living in prophetic days, we
must become a prophetic people. Resolve to live with the
strength, the boldness, the unbending steadfastness, and the purity
of the prophets. The eyes of the Lord search the entire earth
looking for the one whose heart is completely His. You be that
one. And God will keep you, affirm you, and lift you up.
you for all your prayers. They are crucial! Take steps
this month to rise to your prophetic call for such a time as this.
And may the Lord greatly bless you as you do.
