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

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 It’s archaic and outdated.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.

Righteous Rulings By Judge Amy Berman Jackson And Judge T.S Ellis In The Case Of Paul John Manafort

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.
