California Governor Gavin Newson Has Taken A Just And Righteous Step In Halting The Death Penalty | The Death Penalty Is Murder

California Governor Gavin Newson Has Taken A Just And Righteous Step In Halting The Death Penalty | The Death Penalty Is Murder.



Some issues are not about a person’s political inclinations. Some issues are not about whether a person is a republican or a democrat. Some issues are simply about doing what is right. Some issues are about the truth and our consciousness. Some issues are beyond people and they are about God.


The issue of the death penalty is one such issue.


God commands us not to murder. I believe that since none of us has ever created a life, we have no right to take a life. Human beings have enough challenges without having to carry the burden of killing other human beings.


Let’s leave murder to God who created life in the first place. I believe if God wants to kill someone, he is able to do it without human help. That is why one of his commandments is that we should not kill.



“You shall not murder.”

Exodus 20:13


We have sadly become a society that encourages the most gross kinds of wickedness and human behavior. In fact, I have no idea how the death penalty has stood for so long in this world. It’s archaic and outdated. 


Governor Gavin Newson of California has done a righteous thing by halting the death penalty. It’s long over due. I believe the light is finally starting to shine into the darkness of California.


The spiritual revival we have been praying to sweep  through California and lead to healing is finally beginning.


With over 700 inmates on the death row, some innocent, mentally ill or too old, there is really nothing to be gained by killing them.


Living in jail, away from family and a normal life is punishment enough for a human being.


Most human beings can’t even manage staying in their room, the whole day without talking to other human beings. One can therefore only imagine the kind of emotional turmoil and trauma that inmates experience. 


If Jesus could forgive the criminal on the cross next to him, then we have an obligation to show mercy and forgive other human beings.


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


I thank Governor Gavin Newson for being bold, audacious, strong and brave enough to stand and say NO to the death penalty.


Governor Gavin Newson’s stand is one of light, love, righteousness, justice in our world that is often filled with darkness, fear and hate. 


With the atmosphere in California, I know it was not an easy call for him to make, and yet, he went ahead to make the hard call anyway. That is brave and impressive.


I pray Jesus and his Holy spirit keep leading Governor Gavin Newson. I pray Jesus is able to do more righteous work through Governor Gavin.


God can use anyone. There is no partiality with God. Jesus is not a respecter of persons. Jesus is able to use both democrats and republicans in the advancement of his kingdom.



But glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does what is good, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. 11 There is no favoritism with God.

Romans 2:10-11


In the kingdom of Jesus, there are neither democrats or republicans. There are just people who need the love and grace of Abba.


Well done, Governor Gavin Newson. Jesus bless and keep you safe. Let him keep doing more righteous work through you.


Jesus loves you Gavin Newson, and so do I.

Spiritual Revival And Renewal Is Coming To California – Faith – Powerful Stories

Spiritual Revival And Renewal Is Coming To California - Faith - Powerful Stories Blog Post Banner Image

For a long time now, California, especially San Francisco and Los Angeles have been labelled a sort of play ground for the devil.

I have never quite understood how a State with cities named Los Angeles, meaning, “The Angels” and San Fransisco named for Saint. Francis of Assisi could be so plunged with so much iniquity and demons instead.

What not with all the going on’s in  Hollywood  and all the gay parades and havens San Francisco is famous for. Recently Mel Gibson on the Graham Norton Show had some rather shocking revelations to share concerning Hollywood Elites, going as far as alleging that, ” They thrive on breaking every God-given taboo known to man. They have a blatant disregard for the good of the people. Destroying people’s lives is just a game to them. The more pain they can cause, the better the thrill. Children a just sustenance to them. They feast on the pain and fear, and the younger, the better. These people follow their own religion and use it for moral guidance. It’s not the sort of religious teachings you folks would ever hear about. They perform sacred rituals that are sick and totally at odds with the moral fabric that binds most patriotic Americans. The worst part: It’s an open secret in Hollywood and everyone wants in on it.”

All things he shared sound like something out of a movie and not real life. I can only pray his life is safe after those revelations. What not with all the occult and ritualistic descriptions sounding like some sort of modern day witchcraft and sorcery.

After all the scandals that kept pouring out of the state, e.g Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey etc week after week and then the occurrence of the Monstrous Thomas Fire and all the devastation it caused, I guess some folks woke up and started seriously seeking the face of the Lord for the State.

Now, Hope starts to trickle in with wonderful News like a Christian High School Student standing up to the High School Board requesting for the current District Policy which states that,” Philosophical and Religious Theories not be discussed during Science Class” be changed so that he is able to express his religious views, one starts to feel like the Holy Spirit is about to Visit California to do some much needed house cleaning.

In many ways, one can feel the spiritual war that is raging over the state as various phenomenon sweep through the state.

But the Holy Spirit is moving through the world and `California will not be left behind! There is hope for California.

Hillsong held its awesome conference in Los Angeles and various Saints prayed for the State. I know many people are praying for the state that Jesus will move and heal California of it’s iniquities.

Even if many people in the world have given up on the salvation of California, Jesus and his Holy Spirit have not given up on California. Revival and Renewal is coming to the Golden State. Jesus is going to be glorified in California.

If I had any doubts before, because of all the news that keeps coming out of the state, the courage and boldness of 16 year old Grayson Mobley and his strong faith-in-jesus-christ/">faith in Jesus just started dispelling those doubts.

And as my doubts are dispelled, I’m compelled to ask, who else will join to take this mantle further and bring the Lord’s Ark to the City? How many people are willing to join in Sanctification like King David? Our world needs God. We need him to heal our Land and bless it. Let’s join those praying.

7 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah, and God struck him down there because of his error, and he died there beside the ark of God. 8 And David was angry because the Lord had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzzah to this day.

9 And David was afraid of the Lord that day, and he said, “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?” 10 So David was not willing to take the ark of the Lord into the city of David. But David took it aside to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.

11 And the ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite three months, and the Lord blessed Obed-edom and all his household.
12 And it was told King David, “The Lord has blessed the household of Obed-edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God.” So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the city of David with rejoicing.

13 And when those who bore the ark of the Lord had gone six steps, he sacrificed an ox and a fattened animal. 14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might. And David was wearing a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting and with the sound of the horn.

California Thomas Fire, It’s Prophetic And Biblical Significance – The Book Of Amos – Harbingers Of The End Times

California Thomas Fire, It’s Prophetic And Biblical Significance – The Book Of Amos – Harbingers Of The End Times Blog Post Banner Image

California Thomas Fire, It’s Prophetic And Biblical Significance – The Book Of Amos – Harbingers Of The End Times.

First, I should comment on the Name of the fire, “Thomas Fire”. It reminds me of Biblical Thomas who doubted the resurrection of Jesus Christ and had to first see before he believed.

I don’t know why the Authorities chose to call the fire Thomas but could it be a spiritual hint telling us something about the doubting attitude of people these days concerning Prophesy, the Word of God and Jesus Christ?

27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 20:27-29

Just after reading news of the fires, the spirit of the Lord led me to the Biblical book of Amos: Reading the Passage made me feel chilled.

Could what the Prophet Amos wrote decades ago be what is happening in California today I questioned myself. After all it’s winter and yet the fires keep raging like it was the heat of summer.

It’s not that California doesn’t get fires. It does get fires. What makes Thomas fire different is it’s intensity, magnitude and how long it has persisted. For one reason or another, it’s relentless.

CNN calls the Thomas Fire, the Largest wildfire in California’s Modern History.

“Strong wind blows embers from smoldering trees at the Thomas Fire last week in Montecito, California. (CNN)The Thomas Fire is now the largest wildfire in California’s modern history after torching 273,400 acres. The blaze has surpassed the size of the Cedar Fire near San Diego, which destroyed 273,246 acres”

Anyhow, let’s take a look at the scripture in Amos:

12 Thus says the Lord:
“As a shepherd takes from the mouth of a lion
Two legs or a piece of an ear,
So shall the children of Israel be taken out
Who dwell in Samaria—
In the corner of a bed and on the edge of a couch!
13 Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,”
Says the Lord God, the God of hosts,
14 “That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions,
I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel;
And the horns of the altar shall be cut off
And fall to the ground.
15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house;
The houses of ivory shall perish,
And the great houses shall have an end,”
Says the Lord.

Amos 3:12-15

As I contemplated Amos’s words further, I was reminded of a Prophet that Gitardood Weblog recently recommended. She is called Lois Vogel Sharp and she is a deeply spiritual woman with profound insights. I remember her saying somethings about the devastation that is going to come to California. You can watch her Video here to better understand what she predicted could happen in days to come.

LA times reports about how much devastation the Fire has caused in the lives of people living in places where it has raged and roared like a Lion.

“Large stretches of southern California now lie in ruins. In some cases, the fire spread so fast that terrified residents were forced to evacuate without their possessions in the dead of night as smoke surrounded their homes.

“I feel like I’m spinning,” local resident Jeff Jacobson, whose house was mostly burned, told the L.A. Times. “I’m overwhelmed and stressed, which is hard because I need to be clear-minded.”

And Amos Continues to say:

4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey?
Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he has caught nothing?
5 Will a bird fall into a snare on the earth, where there is no trap for it?
Will a snare spring up from the earth, if it has caught nothing at all?
6 If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid?
If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it?

Amos 3:4-6

 I know reading some of these news stories and then tying it in with the Bible can be difficult sometimes.

I know that sometimes it’s easier to be a Thomas and to doubt unless the evidence is presented.

I know to many people the coming back of Jesus seems like a far fetched idea and many are blind to the signs of the end times.

But, could God be telling us something through his Prophets?

Could the News by these Media Houses be just the Evidence that will turn many a doubting Thomas into a believing Thomas?

Surely the Lord God does nothing,
Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
8 A lion has roared!
Who will not fear?
The Lord God has spoken!
Who can but prophesy?

Amos 3:7-8
