Prophetic Isaiah 59 judgment may be falling on America
The moral condition of the United States may be prompting a prophetic Isaiah 59 judgment on Americans because as Isaiah 59:4 says, "None call for justice, nor any plead for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity." Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department appears to be turning against the citizens it vows to protect. One of Holder's first acts was to announce that the terrorists being held in Guantanamo Bay would be tried in US civilian courts. This would have afforded these terrorists the same Constitutional rights as American citizens. These terrorists were not American citizens and were out to kill Americans. Yet, Holder wanted to treat them as citizens.
In June, before even the facts surrounding the BP oil spill in the Gulf were investigated, Holder announced that he was initiating a criminal investigation against BP, saying, "If we find evidence of illegal behavior, we will be extremely forceful in our response." The man who occupies the Oval Office then slapped a moratorium on Gulf oil drilling. Holder defended the action in federal court drawing criticism from the judge, who said "the Court is persuaded that it is only a matter of time before more business and jobs and livelihoods will be lost. The defendants (sic the White House) trivialize such losses." Holder lost. Americans continue to lose as oil rigs are abandoning the Gulf for friendlier political waters.
Then Holder's Justice Department dropped a voter intimidation case it had already won against New Black Panther Party member Samir Shabazz, a militant Islamist who intimidated white voters in Philadelphia during the last presidential election. Shabazz said that he hated white people and that the only way the Black man is to gain his freedom is by killing white babies. But Holder's Justice Department is going to investigate the involuntary manslaughter conviction of a white police officer who killed a black man who was resisting arrest. Holder wants to know if he can press federal charges against the officer for a racially motivated crime.
That's not all. The federal government has refused to secure the border with Mexico, turning a blind eye to raging drug wars endangering US citizens. Arizona passed a law to secure its borders. Holder is suing Arizona for interfering in America's foreign policy and anti-terrorism efforts. In addition, Holder told CBS's "Face the Nation" that he may also sue Arizona for racial profiling. Isaiah 59:14 says, "And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." Here "judgment" means "verdicts." Holder's decisions hold no justice according to America's laws, but in our fallen condition what are we to expect according to God's laws?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
