Martha W. Robinson – Waiting on God
- II Cor.3:18 But we all with unveiled face—- reflecting as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory.
Whenever you can, take a few minutes of just waiting on Jesus,——– not necessarily praying but just waiting, looking into His face, desiring His presence. At first you may not seem to receive much; but if you take every opportunity, presently your soul will hunger for Him and the sweetness of Himself will come to you, and you will get like lovers, rather slip away with Him just for a minute or two than to talk, or read, or rest, or eat. And when you are tired, or rushed, or nervous, a few minutes with Him, in the stillness of His presence will rest you more than anything in the world.
If we looked at Jesus more, and ourselves, and our friends, and our trails, and our failures, and conditions of life, and the world, the flesh, and the devil less, we would reflect His image more and more; and the hardness and impurity, and temper, and selfishness would fade away, and tenderness, and purity, and gentleness, and love would take their places—- changing from glory to glory.

- 2 Chronicle 28:9 ‘Serve Him whole heartedly, with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts and understand every plan and thought. If you seek Him, He will be found by you. But if you forsake Him, He will cast you out forever.’
- Isaiah 10:1-2 ‘What sorrow awaits the unjust judges and those who issue unfair laws. They deprive the poor of justice and deny the rights of the needy among my people. They prey on widows and take advantage of orphans.’
- Isaiah 44:2 ‘The Lord who made you and helps you says: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, O dear Israel, my chosen one.’
- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ‘Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.’
【Event: The 2019-20 SCOTUS New Term has kicked off on 10/7/2019. SCOTUS today is at a very different place since the 2018 retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a centrist conservative who often cast the deciding vote in closely contested cases. Replaced by conservative Justice Kavanaugh, the five hard-core conservatives and 4 other liberal judges are taking on abortion, Roe v. Wade, expand gun rights, religious rights and more.
Flashpoint: Scheduled at the docket for 2019-2020 are controversial, testing of the American society cases. These new, pivotal or re-visiting cases are setting the future of America (2 Chron. 28:9): abortion, gun rights, gay rights, the separation of church and state, immigration and Presidential Power, etc.
Pending also at the court are vital cases testing the power of congress through the executive branch, with information that’s relevant for congressional oversight connected to impeachment of the president.
Political Votes vs. Conservative Votes: By tradition, SCOTUS should not walk on political turf (Isa. 10:1-2). However, Chief Justice John Roberts (conservative) had previously uphold and passed Obamacare in 2012; recently, repudiating the citizenship question on the census (disallowed the quiz showing ‘citizen’ on the census) with political bias.
A Glance at some major cases through 2020:
- Is the right to abortion going to be struck down?
- Argument of a 2016 Texas Law forbidding abortion clinics perform abortions; same identical case with Louisiana Law.
- Possible revisit the Roe vs. Wade in this term, or in the future. (Isa. 44:2)
- Gun Rights – a major test due to repeating accelerated shooting events
- Gun ownership is a constitutional right for self-defense in one’s home.
- Will Chief Justice John Roberts vote according to the constitutional rights, while the rest are 4 conservative (constitutionist) judges and 4 liberal judges?
- Separation of Church and State
- For generations, the court sought to build a relatively high wall of separation. However, it has begun to change with religious rights advocates are poised to pounce.
- Many discussions have been invalidating or undermining provisions in most state constitutions, debate in defending direct or indirect aid to religious schools; in itself is discrimination of religion based on the federal constitution.
- Firing an employee because he is gay or of transgender identity?
- The 1964 Civil Rights Act bars discrimination in employment ‘Because of sex”. Fired employees contend that the language protects them from such discharges. However, employers argue that the Law was never meant to cover ‘gay or transgender employees.’
- Immigration – the ‘Dreamers’ (DACA)
- Trump Administration opposed the Obama administration program protecting deportation of the 700,000 – 800,000 ‘Dreamers’ whom were brought into U.S. by illegal migrated parents.
- Presidential Power and Impeachment
- SCOTUS has no option but to tackle issues related to the 2020 Presidential election. President Trump thus far has been protected under immunity status from on-going, i.e. criminal and lawless investigations, subpoenas for his financial records, or potential records implicated to ‘impeachment inquiry’.
- Electoral College, Faithless electors and 2020 Election
- Pending at the Supreme Court is a case involves a test of ‘faithless elector’ laws. These are laws passed in many states that impose penalties on Electoral College delegates, or for the removal of electors (pledged to vote) but refused to vote for the presidential candidate of their designated party. (Historically, 99% of Electors have voted as pledged).
Pray for Canada – For The Upcoming Federal Election
【Current Event: Canada will hold a presidential and congressional federal election on October 21 this year. The Conservative Party, the Liberal Party and the New Democratic Party are the main political parties participating. After the 2015 election, the Liberal Party became the ruling party. Under the leadership of the current Prime Minister Trudeau, many ungodly policies have been implemented, such as the legalization of marijuana, distorted primary and secondary school sex education, and even arresting Christians for passing out flyers in the gay parade, etc.
Canada is a country founded on Christianity. Sir Leonard Tilley, the founding father, read Psalm 72:8 on the morning of deciding the name for the country . ” He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.” And decided to call Canada the ” The Dominion of Canada ” (He) is in charge of Canada. In the past, the prophecy over Canada are “Canada will prepare the way for returning of Jesus Christ. ” ” Canada is reserved for a special work for the last days. ” The Maple Leaf on the Canadian flag speak of Canada’s destiny of Healing of the nations.
This is the most crucial moment in Canada. The Canadian family asks the global family to pray for Canada to elect a government that fears God and turn Canada back to God again and enter the destiny!
Revive Europe 40 Weeks – Pray for Kosovo
【Background: Kosovo has been subjected to centuries of ethnic cruel conflicts, subject to the Serbs from the 600s to 1389 and 1912-2008. The President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Slobodan Milosevic, intended to establish an alternative government and slaughtered many Albanian resistance forces forced the relocation of 800,000 people. Kosovo gained independence in 2008 with the intervention of NATO and the United Nations for 10 years.
Spiritual situation: Kosovo is dominated by Islam, 95% of the population is Muslim, and young people who have not followed Islam are seeking freedom or atheism. There are only a little more than 2,000 Christians. The Christian communities are often damaged by mobs。Yet, believers continue to increase, and children and youth have good witnesses.
Social concerns: political corruption, exploitation, violence, crime, poverty, 70% unemployment.

Here is the sharing of Brian LaBounty :
