(CNSNews.com) – In a speech to commemorate the National Day of Prayer in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn said President Barack Obama enacted “words and laws that war against the very word’ on which he took his oath of office, citing as an example how he celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage by lighting up the White House with the colors of the rainbow.
“Mr. President, did you not lay your hand on the word of God to assume the oath of your presidency?” Cahn asked. “Then how did you take the same hand and enact words and laws that war against the very word on which you swore your oath, and you uttered the words, ‘so help me God,’ but on the day that the order of God was struck down, you issued the order to illumine the White House in the colors of the rainbow to celebrate that striking down.”
“Mr. President, by what authority did you get to take the sacred colors of God’s covenant, the colors of his throne, and the colors of his mercy in the face of judgment and turn them against the purposes of God and the word of God on which you swore your oath? Does a president have the power to veto the ordinances of the living God?” Cahn asked.
Cahn also questioned where the U.S. Supreme Court got its authority to “overrule the rulings of the most high.”
“So it must be asked this day, Supreme Court justices, from where did you get the authority to overrule the rulings of the most high? And by what authority did you strike down the laws of the eternal? And who gave you the power to annul the word of the almighty and pass judgment on the judge of all existence?” he asked.
“You are neither the highest court or the final authority. There is a supreme judge, who wields a supreme justice that will not sleep forever,” Cahn said.
“America cannot be great without returning to the God of its greatness. Without humility, repentance, and revival, the ambition for greatness will end up as nothing more than a tower of Babel,” Cahn said, adding that “We’ve come here today, because our trust is not in man or woman. We’ve come here today to seek the power of God.”
Cahn said America “has turned from the God of her blessings.”
“The city on the hill that was founded for the purposes of God now drove God out of its government, its culture, and its public squares. The city on the hill that was dedicated to the glory of God now glorified ungodliness and called evil good and good evil,” he said.
“And the city on the hill that was consecrated to be a light to the nations now lifted up its most innocent and helpless and slaughtered them on the altars of self-obsession, and its collective hands were covered with the blood of millions. The city on the hill has grown darkened. It has forgotten the God of its foundation. The temples of its culture have been expunged of its presence, and now are filled with idols in his place,” Cahn added.
Cahn said America has “forgotten the warning of its foundation” that was “embedded in the vision of the city on the hill.”
“For it was also written and prophesied if our hearts shall turn away so that we will not obey but shall be seduced and worship other gods, our pleasures, and our prophets and serve them, we shall surely perish,” he said.
“In other words, if we do so, we’ll stand at the precipice of judgment, and the city on the hill has also forgotten the warning given by its first president, the prophetic warning given in its first speech on its first day as a constituted nation,” Cahn said.
That warning was “’the propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which heaven itself has ordained.’ In other words, if America ever disregarded the eternal rules of order and right ordained by God, the blessings of God would be removed from the land,” he said.
