Ouster Vote By End of Week!
Senate Conducting Deliberations in Secret


A disreputable witness scorns justice, And the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity (Pr 19:28).

He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD (Pr 17:15).

It is a joy for the just to do justice, But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity (Pr 21:15).

Overview:

The U.S. Senate, in its Constitutional role as judge and jury in the impeachment trial of President Clinton, has entered into secret deliberations, its members expected to emerge Friday, February 12, for a final vote on two articles of impeachment: perjury and obstruction of justice. Thirteen House Managers delivered impassioned closing arguments Monday, obviously wearied by the physical demands upon them, and also disheartened that Democrat and Republican Senators alike are prepared to disregard the Constitution and violate their sworn oaths, in numbers sufficient to acquit Clinton of both impeachment articles.

Meanwhile, at a recent convocation some have called the "greatest gathering of prophets" in recent history, platform speakers included those who previously had predicted Clinton would become one of America's greatest presidents, "if Christians would pray." Now, they and others blame Clinton's present predicament -- and the judgments that are sure to come -- on the Church (for their critical attitudes toward Clinton). How can our congressmen understand justice if our preachers do not?

This week, one of the most important Senate votes in our lifetime will occur. The articles of impeachment require a straight up or down, guilty or not guilty, vote (something many senators have been trying to avoid). If Clinton is exonerated, as most predict, 1999 will go down in infamy with 1962 (prayer removed from schools), 1963 (Bible removed), 1973 (abortion legalized), 1992 (Clinton elected) and 1996 (Clinton re-elected) as demonic bellwether moments in our country's path to ruin. But God is still on His throne and anything could still happen. Even as skeptic Benjamin Franklin called the Continental Congress to prayer in 1789, and God thereafter enabled our Constitution and nation to be established, perhaps He may intervene again and preserve it and us a little longer.

Please Agree with us in Prayer:

Heavenly Father, HELP! Please preserve the JUSTICE & LIBERTY You graciously Granted our fathers! INTERVENE! May the FEAR OF GOD now come upon all our Senators. Give Republicans and Democrats COURAGE to do right! CRUSH the lawless censure effort! Deliver this People from our Moral Madness, especially your Church! (Dt 28:28; Ps 31:17-24; 136:1-26; Pr 25:25-27; 28:4; Is 1:16-18; Mic 3:1-12; 2 Tim 1:7; 1 Jn 3:4-8)
