The Importance of the Constitution and how it relates to the Supreme Court; and the soon confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
When individuals are running for a potential seat in our leadership, promises are made. When it comes time to elect the candidate for a designated position, we take into consideration what decisions and actions were promised would be carried out. Before President Trump became our current President, he promised to appoint a Supreme Court Justice that would abide by the Constitution. President Trump has fulfilled this promise and nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the present vacancy in the Supreme Court.
Judge Gorsuchunderstands the immense responsibility that is being presented to him. “The Supreme Court’s work is vital not just to a region of the Country, but to the whole, vital to the protection of the people’s liberties under law; and to the continuity of our Constitution, the greatest charter of human liberty the world has ever known.” He also understands the Constitution’s original intent for the Judicial Branch; not make law, but to interpret those that have already been made. “I respect to the fact that in our legal order, it is for the Congress and not the courts to write new laws. It is the role of judges to apply not alter, the work of the people’s representatives.”
It is always a vital decision to decide who will be the next President of the United States. What some may not know, is that this decision also brings additional appointees in other areas of government; namely, The Supreme Court. Whoever is elected as President, will also appoint Supreme Court Justices when vacancies present themselves. Rick Joyner and Lt. Gen (Ret.) Boykin discussed the very importance of this matter. Boykin points out, “The most enduring impact of any presidential administration is the Supreme Court Justices.” The reason being is the length of time that a Supreme Court Justice will serve compared to the time a President will serve. Boykin continues, “…so when you have presidents appointing Supreme Court justices, they will be there long after that president has left office and they will continue making decisions that would be aligned with that President.” Think about the vital decisions that are brought before the Supreme Court and the importance of those who will decide the moral direction that our Country will go. It is important to have a Supreme Court Justice who will not insert their preference, or political leanings, when deciding on a particular court case, but to decide solely based on what is alignment with the Constitution.
The reason that Washington exists is because it is spelled out in the Constitution. Without the awareness of what is said within the Constitution, one would be unaware of just how far we have gone from its original intentions. Instead of laws being created by Congress, in the Legislative Branch, we are seeing laws being created from the Judicial Branch, The Supreme Court. Our freedoms and liberties are not being taken away, we are giving them away. This is only possible because we are not aware of how operations were initially intended to be carried out. When we start giving up our liberties for comfort and convenience, we will find ourselves in a reality that results in Communism.
As Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, Robert George often asks his students how the framers of the Constitution sought to “preserve liberty and prevent tyranny”. As he describes, many of his students get the answer wrong, because their answers “reflects a common misunderstanding of the Constitution.” George further explains his response by sharing this important matter; “The Constitution did not envision a national government of general jurisdiction – meaning a government that could do whatever it wanted — but rather, a government of enumerated and delegated powers — a government that had authority over only specific areas of American life. All other powers were to be beyond the scope of the national government and reserved to the States or to the American people themselves.” He further points how this being the reason why the 9th and 10th Amendments were added to the Constitution. As he describes, “These amendments reinforced the idea that the national government couldn’t just assume powers it had not been specifically granted by the Constitution.” It is because we do not understand the original intent of the Constitution that we have unknowingly been allowing other branches to create law. We can see now how the power to make law must be given back to Congress, and it must remain within the hands of Congress.
As President Trumpcontinues to address the American people on what is taking place under his Administration, he shares about the present status of Judge Gorsuch’s nomination and how the Senate will be voting on this nomination. President Trump details on how the process of making laws is supposed to be carried out. “Elected representatives from all across the country come together, they host hearings, they listen to the concerns of the people, and then they try to write laws that address those concerns and make life better for all Americans.” When processes are not instantaneous, but linger and are drawn out, that means they are simply going through the process of how it’s ordered in the Constitution. “It’s a process that is meant to take time and energy, to ensure that every new law will better serve our wonderful citizens. That’s how our democratic process works. The duty of judges; therefore, is not to rewrite the laws, but to uphold the laws and to apply the Constitution as written.”
As we have elected the leaders that are now in authority, it is important that we also continue to support their leadership in prayer. We need to pray for our leaders. So many cases are taken before the Supreme Court. Take into consideration Roe v. Wade, which made abortion legal in the United States. If we want God to move, we cannot allow innocent bloodshed. It makes a difference who will be in the Supreme Court.
Allow your understanding of the Supreme Court to grow as you see how important it is to know how America was designed to be carried out through the words of the Constitution, how laws are made, why it matters who our Supreme Court justices are, and so much more.

We are going to Mars! President Trump Signs New $19.5 Billion NASA Bill; and Elon Musk’s Vision to Colonize Mars?
Considering how many people are traveling throughout the world right now, can you imagine traveling beyond the confines of our globe, past the Moon, and traveling to Mars? With the President’s recent decision to fund a $19.5 Billion NASA Bill, there are new possibilities and horizons for space exploration.
Surrounded by Senator Cruz, Senator Nelson, co-authors of the Bill, as well as many other governmental leaders, and representatives from NASA, President Trump comments on the impact of this new Bill. “With this legislation, we support NASA’s scientists, engineers, astronauts, and their pursuit of discovery. We support jobs, it’s about jobs also. This bill calls for ongoing medical monitoring and treatment of our heroic astronauts for health conditions that result from their service.” He continues, “…It advances space science by maintaining a balanced set of missions and activities to explore our solar system and the entire universe. And it ensures that through NASA’s astronauts and aeronautics research, the United States will remain a total leader in aviation.”
Amazing advancements, inventions, and discoveries have taken place since man has entered into space exploration. There have only been 12 people to walk on the Moon. But, can you imagine walking on Mars? Elon Musk, the co-founder of Paypal, CEO of Tesla, has plans to not only reach Mars, but to colonize Mars. Musk is also the founder of SpaceX, which created the ability to re-use rockets that are able to exit Earth’s atmosphere and return to the launch pad. Musk recently spoke about his vision to colonize Mars.
After the vision of a rocket landing on Mars shows what this would look like, he then begins to describe the two paths that are in our future. “One path is that we stay on Earth forever and then there will be some eventual extinction event. I don’t have an immediate doomsday prophecy…history suggests there will be some doomsday event.” With this in mind, he then proposes an alternative. “…the alternative is to become a spacefaring civilization and a multi-planet species which I hope you would agree that is the right way to go.” His goal is to make the cost of travelling to Mars equal the “median cost of a house in the United States”. As he states this to be about $200,000, he adds, “I think the probability of establishing a self-sustaining civilization is very high…”
Musk talks about a “eventual extinction event”. This is true. This will eventually happen. It happens when the last Trumpet sounds and the last Bowl is poured out upon the Earth. Revelation 21:1 highlights, “Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” Our hope is not in Mars, but in Eternity, with Jesus Christ.
