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.

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.

2 Samuel 6:7-15
