Righteous Rulings By Judge Amy Berman Jackson And Judge T.S Ellis In The Case Of Paul John Manafort.
I think it’s a good thing and a blessing that Paul John Manafort Jr gets a total of 7 and a half years in jail for his crimes.
Paul John Manafort, 69 years, is an American lawyer, political consultant and former campaign manager to the 2016 Donald Trump campaign.
He is married to Kathleen Bond who is 66 years old and is currently suffering from a brain injury.
Judge T.S Ellis (Thomas Selby Ellis III) sentenced him to 47 months while Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced him to 43 months for combined cases of conspiracy and fraud.
We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. If it was not for Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, we should all be headed to hell.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”Romans 3:23-26
In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray thus:
In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. 13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. 14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.Matthew 6:8-15
If we expect God to forgive us, then we should be able to forgive other people. Forgiveness is not always easy and yet it is worth it.
I’m grateful to Judge Amy Baker Jackson and Judge T.S Ellis for ruling and judging with righteousness, mercy, kindness and compassion.
Jesus says, he came for sinners and he desires mercy and not sacrifice.
When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”Matthew 9:12-13
Both Judge Amy Baker Jackson and Judge T.S Ellis showed mercy, kindness, love, compassion and leniency.
Our world filled with hate, darkness, un-forgiveness, hard heartedness, fear, cruelty needs more news of compassion, kindness, light, faith, hope, mercy and love.
If Jesus could forgive the thief on the cross, when he showed repentance and was contrite, who are we not to forgive others when they repent and ask for forgiveness?
One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” 40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”Luke 23:39-43
Paul Manafort has apologized. He has also promised to change and become a better man. I believe he is able to.
We shall keep praying for him and we pray Jesus does a great work in his life. Paul Manafort, Jesus loves you and so do I.
