Annulling the Covenant of Death

“Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand” (Isaiah 28:18a).

For over a century, America has been on a slippery slope “slouching towards Gomorrah.” It has been primarily the Supreme Court that set this deceitful course. Through a series of iniquities decrees, our federal judicial branch handed Almighty God His eviction notice. One nation under God is now in name only. The substance has been removed by judicial fiat.

True to history, unprecedented violence and perversion has replaced God in our defiled land. Once a shining city on a hill, the land of the free and home of the brave, has increasingly resorted back to the brutal darkness of paganism and its ancient evils. Chief among them are child sacrifice, the shedding of innocent blood and parading our sin like Sodom.

It was on January 22nd, 1973, when the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision was issued. It was there America officially revoked our national covenant of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness and replaced it with a covenant with death. This produced a culture of death currently savaging this generation. Abortion, homosexuality, and suicide relentlessly stalks our young.

Under the color of law, lawlessness has been unleashed. As a result, the American holocaust has gone on unabated for 46 years. In the wake of this treachery, over one third of an entire generation has been wiped out by these monstrosities.

The law is a teacher. When the laws of men are not rooted in the sublime law of God, concepts of good and evil become muddled. If not vigilant, evil can become good, and good, evil. When evil is codified into law, governmental tyranny and licentiousness amongst citizens are the severe consequences nations suffer. Governments end up defending the indefensible.

A proper judicial system should guarantee liberty by equal justice under the law. Otherwise, citizens will lose the moral authority to sustain freedom. It is not a coincidence that America is becoming a socialist nation under our watch.

Our second President, John Adams, warned, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

What has been the response to the national sins that has brought national calamity upon us? Whatever it has been, it has been insufficient to annul the covenant with death. In my humble opinion, we have fallen short of what is needed and necessary to deliver our land from this evil.

There are several reasons for our collective failure to end the American holocaust. First, Roe violates the holy commandment of God. We have forgotten the Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being. God did not state, “Thou shall not murder” unless the Supreme Court rules otherwise.

Divine law trumps human law. If human law countermands God’s law, it is no law at all. For over 1500 years of Western civilization the standard has been, when the State commands us to do what God forbids or forbids us to do what God commands, we are to obey God rather than man.

America has committed idolatry by placing the Supreme Court above our Creator, the very One our Declaration of Independence cites as the author and defender of our rights. A misinformed citizenry accepts the absurd notion that the Supreme Court has ruled and all we can do is obey. American citizens are not obligated to make a suicide pact with the Supreme Court nor accept malevolent social transformation without representation.

Second, courts cannot make law. Courts issue opinions and rulings. Only our legislative branch is ordained by the Constitution to make law. Roe vs. Wade is legal fiction and pretend legislation. It was imposed on America by an activist court. In the name of the Constitution, the Supreme Court violated the Constitution.

Article one, section one of our Constitution clearly states, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” How much authority remains for the Supreme Court to make law? Even with the new math, it still comes out to be zero.

What does our Constitution state when it comes to the matters of life and death, “No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law?” No penumbra of the Constitution, no magic fairy dust, which emanates from the Constitution can change the plain meaning of the text. The preborn child has done nothing that warrants capital punishment. Therefore, as human beings made in the image of God, their personhood is to be protected by law.

Third, the response of the pro-life movement, though filled with good motives, has fallen short to defeat this injustice. He who defines wins. Tragically, much of the language and strategies set forth by those who promote abortion have been adopted by the pro-life movement.

Much of our tactics give credence to the premises advocated by those who murder the preborn. In other words, we work within the parameters of Roe vs. Wade. We seek to evade the tyranny, but never ignore or defy it. We have chosen to appease evil, rather than establish justice.

There has been no concerted effort by any branch of government to place the Constitutional chain back on the judicial beast devouring our young and destroying the God ordained family. Our historic checks and balances have fallen to the wayside with dire consequences. Granted, there have been some babies saved, but long term, we have inadvertently strengthened the lawlessness and tyranny of the Supreme Court.

As a result of the incremental approach, the church and the pro-life movement have chosen to regulate baby murder, instead of ending it. Both pro-choice/pro-life groups have treated abortion as a healthcare issue. The pro-life movement believes that it can be resolved by legal technicalities. The healthcare strategy has guided the compromised actions of those whose motives may be well intended, but politically their actions miss the mark.

The church and pro-life movement have refused to come into agreement with God’s assessment concerning abortion. It is a crime. God calls it murder and it needs to be penalized by law. It is this denial that has helped to create the pro-life hamster wheel that has been bottle necked by the Supreme Court.

Someone once stated, “Insanity is doing something over and over again, expecting different results.” Perhaps, it is time for Americans to rethink our approach to end the American holocaust. We must do more than just plead the case of the fatherless. God commands that we plead their case to WIN IT (Jeremiah 5:28).

There are two doctrines that are essential in establishing this just goal. They are the doctrines of interposition and the lesser magistrate. The doctrine of interposition takes place when a tyrant targets the helpless for harm and a third party intervenes to protect the victim.

The Lesser Magistrate doctrine teaches that when a higher-ranking civil authority makes immoral, unjust, and unconstitutional laws, the lower ranking civil authority (Governors, State Legislators, Sheriffs, Chief of police, etc.) have a duty to refuse obedience to that superior authority.

Colorado defied the Feds to get a Rocky Mountain high. Other liberal states defy the Feds to protect sanctuary cities and encourage illegal immigration. How much more should the states defy the Feds when it comes to the two most important issues for our national survival, the defense of innocent life and preserving the God ordained family?

If “We the People” refuse to apply these doctrines to end the American holocaust, the carnage will continue. It is my sincere prayer that we will muster the courage that is needed and necessary to end this long night of wrong to bring forth a new birth of liberty that will secure a future and hope for our posterity in Jesus’ name! It is time to ignore Roe, establish justice and end all abortion now!
