A Fox News headline regarding the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court: “Schumer plans for ‘nuclear’ showdown with McConnell.”
1 Peter 3:21-22 (ESV)
Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.
Our Father in heaven, we thank You for the resurrection of Jesus. He is seated at Your right hand in heaven, and the angels, authorities, and powers of the U.S. Senate are subjected to Him.
Ephesians 6:11-13 (ESV)
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
We fasten the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for our feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. We take up the shield of faith, with which we can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Romans 8:37-39 (ESV)
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
No, in the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. We are sure that the powers in the US Senate that oppose Judge Gorsuch’s nomination cannot separate the unborn children of the United States from Your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. We declare the word of God over the U.S. Senate. Amen.
