Walgreens Looted as Southwest Atlanta was in Darkness

Hurricane “Irma” traversed several Caribbean islands, Florida and Georgia and ravished every place it touched. Life has been lost, property destroyed and people are struggling to make it without power. The scriptures show that when incidents like this occur, we should take heed, reflect on our lives and repent. Some people are taking note and examining themselves while others are using the unrest and chaos as an opportunity for wickedness.

Early this morning, I went out to pick up a prescription at the local Walgreens in Southwest Atlanta. The area was destitute of electricity and the majority of businesses were closed as a result of the power outages. When I arrived at the Walgreens, much to my dismay, I saw the damage that was caused during the storm. It was not the result of high winds. A tree did not fall on the store. It was looters who smashed through the front door and made off with the items they desired. This is happening throughout the U.S. and the world anytime a catastrophe hits. Pharmacies, sneaker, electronic and jewelry stores are the usual first victims.

Amos 3:6-7  Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?  (7)  Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Jeremiah 23:19-20  Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.  (20)  The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

Instead of considering why hurricanes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters are destroying the Earth. Wicked men that refuse to repent use these events to further prosper in their wickedness. Looting, burglaries and scams increase during these times and we must be cautious and alert. The Most High sees their sins and they will not continue to take advantage of people and prosper.

Psalms 10:2-4  The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.  (3)  For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.  (4)  The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.

Looting, burglaries and scams are all sins that violate the 8th commandment. Exodus 20:15  Thou shalt not steal. If you are looting, you are a thief and you must repent. During these times of catastrophe and  chaos, we should be focusing on what we need to do to draw closer to the Lord not creating a wider gulf between us by adding sin unto sin!

1 Corinthians 6:9-10  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  (10)  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Ephesians 4:28  Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

Eating Raw Chicken??? Yep It’s a Real Thing!

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) Every year, Salmonella is estimated to cause one million foodborne illnesses in the United States, with 19,000 hospitalizations and 380 deaths. With that being said, it is a common fact that the easiest way to infect yourself with this bacteria is to eat undercooked poultry. But despite this common truth there are still those who would take the risk of eating raw chicken in the form of the Japanese dish Chicken Sashimi.
Many people may be familiar with the Biblical dietary laws written in the books of Leviticus chapter 11 and 12th Chapter of Deuteronomy which prohibit the eating of various animals and sea creatures. But fewer people may be aware of the fact that the scriptures also forbade us to eat any of our food raw or uncooked. This was done to purge the blood out of a creature which was unlawful for us to partake of.

raw chicken

 

Leviticus 17:13-14 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.14 For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

Despite this commandment, one of the most popular foods in the world is Sushi which in many forms consists of raw or uncooked fish or Sashimi which consists of any fresh raw meat.

 

 

Even in the New Testament the practice of eating anything with the blood (uncooked or raw) was prohibited, clearly upholding the commandment given in the Old Testament Law.

chicken-sashimi-exists-and-americans-are-freaking-2-28766-1504820478-4_dblbigActs 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well.

Although the idea of Chicken Sashimi was not well received in the continental United States, it is still worth mentioning due to the fact that so many Americans are in the practice of eating undercooked red meat and Sushi. These are things we must abstain from, not just for health sake but for commandments of God.

James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Is Your Wife Nagging You To Death????

The Holy Bible tells us that wives were given to man as a help from God. The strength, honor and love that a wife brought to her husband was meant to provide him with rest, comfort, vitality and ultimately prolong his life in peace. But according to a study performed by the University of Copenhagen, many of today’s women are literally nagging their husbands to death. The study first conducted in 2014 found that husbands who have wives that complain and nag incessantly will live significantly shorter lives and are more likely to develop serious health issues such as heart disease and cancer.
These findings are disturbing not only for health reasons but also because it totally contradicts the values of a virtuous wife spoken of in the Biblical book of Proverbs chapter 31.

Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

The scriptures tell us that a virtuous woman is a treasure that will bring good into the life of her husband. But too often we see and hear of how many of today’s marriages end in bitter divorce based on hatred, jealousy and strife often from external sources.

nagging-man

 

Proverbs 26:20Where no wood is, [there] the fire goeth out: so where [there is] no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
James 3:14 -16 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but [is] earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work.

 

 

nagging 2The scriptures warn us that this spirit of envy and strife is evil and Satanic with no place in a marriage among followers of Christ.

Proverbs 10:12Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins

In the book of Ephesians Chapter 5:25-33, the Heavenly Father decrees that the love between husband and wife should be as deep and profound as the love between Jesus Christ and his Church. This is why the scriptures tell us that “Hatred strirreth up strifes”: but it is the love of Christ that helps us to conquer all sins.

For the women in Christ who are reading this article, please understand that this is not an attack on your character but rather an exhortation and admonishment.

Proverbs 31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

A wife has every right to criticize, question and even rebuke a husband when necessary, but remember, a virtuous woman filled with the Holy Spirit can do this with dignity, wisdom, grace and a loving tongue! It is our prayer that this article will promote some much needed dialogue for couples in Christ who are struggling to find their way.

Woman Steals 18 Bottles of Liquor in Viral Video!


A Shreverport Louisiana woman is behind bars after a viral video shows her stealing an incredible 18 bottle of liquor from a local store. The customer placed several bottles in her oversized purse before resorting to putting more bottles in her pants and bra. Upon exiting the establishment she is seen smiling and strutting triumphantly as she seemingly escapes with her ill gotten gains. But in the scriptures Jesus confirms that “nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad” (Luke 8:17)
The Holy Bible tells us in multiple passages that stealing is a sin that is prohibited according to the laws of God and man.

18 bottles

 

Exodus 20:15Thou shalt not steal.
Leviticus 19:11Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

 

 

 

Although the scriptures are unwavering in their pronunciation of the judgment for this sin, it is also written that a thief is not hated if he steals out of hunger and necessity.

Proverbs 6:30-31 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

This is all the more reason why this video is so incredibly vile. Stealing 18 bottles of liquor cannot feed a family or provide nourishment to an infant. It was stolen to fulfill yet another ungodly lust which is drunkenness.

Ephesians 5:18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

The scriptures admonish us to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit so that we will not be driven to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. It is our prayer that those who are overtaken in the sins of theft or drunkenness my find strength to overcome in the words of the Heavenly Father and his Christ which are found in the Holy Bible.

Modern Day Zealot Tries to Burn Police Precinct!


7c765100-75bc-4916-9e5b-15d5590a7f48-large16x9_tempMARTAYSIMPSON750K0624_01_frame_2382Martay Simpson, a young man who is a Hebrew Israelite that was arrested for attempting to burn down a Cincinnati Police Station in July 2017. The young man was charged with two counts of aggravated arson and vandalism by placing a can of gasoline by the building and igniting it.

For years growing up, I have personally heard anti-government sentiments from many Israelites groups. However, as our understanding grew, we understood that it isn’t about trying to overthrow anybody, as the Most High God starts and ends kingdoms. Christ explains this to the disciples in the verse below…

Acts 1:6  When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Christ explained to the disciples that it isn’t in our power to know when these gentile pagan kingdoms will fall and usher in the kingdom for Israel. However, we should be concerned with teaching the gospel of repentance to the 12 Tribes scattered abroad.

Definition of Zealot (according to Wikipedia)- originally a political movement in 1st century Second Temple Judaism which sought to incite the people of Judaea Province to rebel against the Roman Empire and expel it from the Holy Land by force of arms.

The Zealots were groups of Israelites who banned together to overthrow the Roman government, sometimes by violence and murder.

But according to the Bible, are our people supposed to be engaging in taking down the government, burning down government buildings, killing government officials, etc.?

Titus 3:1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, also read Romans 13:1

The scriptures instructs us that not only shouldn’t we try to overthrow the government, but we should also obey their laws…granted if those laws don’t contradict the Heavenly Father’s commandments. For example, obeying traffic laws in this land isn’t wrong. On the flip side, if this land make laws to worship other gods, then as servants of the Most High, we are not obligated to follow that because that violate the 1st and 2nd commandments of God. You don’t see any example of Christ, the apostles, or even the prophets of old attempting to overthrow the kingdoms in which they lived in. The prophet Jeremiah throughout the whole book of Jeremiah, told Israel that they would go into captivity under the Babylonians, therefore not only should Israel obey the Babylonian laws but Israel should pray for the peace of Babylon and live peacefully in the land, read Jeremiah 29:4-7.

What we seem to forget time and time again even as some who have woken up to the knowledge that they are Israelites is that the Most High set up these unjust kingdoms because of our disobedience, read Deuteronomy 28:47-48. It is out of order for us to burn and take down anything because the Most High set up and bring down kingdoms, not us! Therefore, it is imperative that we obey the laws of the land as well as the laws of the Most High and Christ.

I Timothy 2:1-2I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Also we are to pray for the kings and rulers in authority, not because they are holy and righteous, but because the peace of the land means that we can live peacefully enough to follow the Most High and Christ quietly.

Luke 3:14…..Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

If any our people want to overthrow the government, the Most High will not be with you.

Acts 5:36For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

Throughout history our people always wanted to overthrow the governments that oppressed them. Each time, our people were shut down because the Most High determines the rise and fall of kingdoms. The Most High will also determine when the TRUE Israelites will be restored back to their homeland, not us. For now, we have to repent and keep and commandment of our God so it may go well with us in our captivity. Shalam!

Atlanta, GA – The HIV Hotbed of the South

WDW_002WDW_001

During my weekly voyage to work, I would pass a monument dedicated to HIV that was adjacent to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. In recent months, the HIV Clock has disappeared but the issue is far from gone. A recent report from the Center for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 51 Georgians will contract HIV with Atlanta being the literal and figurative hotbed for the epidemic. Dr. Carlos del Rio from the Emory Center for AIDS Research is comparing Atlanta’s HIV infection rates to so-called “third world” countries like Zimbabwe.

The fact is HIV is spreading in certain zip codes and communities in Atlanta faster than others.  AidsVu.org, an Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health website dedicated to illustrating the prevalence of HIV in the United States, disaggregated the data for diagnosed and newly diagnosed HIV cases by race. In 2015, there were 32,818 documented people living in Georgia with HIV. Of that number, 70% were Black, 7% Latino and 19% White. When looking at the newly diagnosed cases, the numbers increased for “minorities” to 74% Black and 8% percent Latino while Whites dropped to 15% of the newly diagnosed cases.

HIV rate

HIV New

Many of these cases, if not all, result from fornication. Almost 70% of males shared that they contracted the disease through homosexual relationships which is a form of fornication when you read chapter 18 of Leviticus.

Leviticus 18:1-5  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  (2)  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God.  (3)  After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.  (4)  Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.  (5)  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

This chapter speaks against homosexuality, bestiality, incest, menage et trois and adultery amongst other sexual sins. The Lord warns us not to defile ourselves in any of these practices that the Egyptians and other nations were practicing. If we obeyed, we would be fine but if we chose to follow the nations, there would be consequences. What was one of those consequences? Diseases.

Deuteronomy 28:58-61  If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;  (59)  Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.  (60)  Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.  (61)  Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

It is not a coincidence that HIV/AIDS rate is higher amongst a certain group of people. It is Biblical prophecy of the punishment that would happen to the children of Israel for following the sexual customs of the nations that were around us. As the children of the Most High, we were to wait until marriage to have sexual relationships and not be involved in this “sexual revolution” where you are free to have sex with whoever and whatever you desired. If we obey the commandments and commit ourselves to living righteously, HIV/AIDS would have little to no effect on our community.

Exodus 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

Hebrews 13:4  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

It is time for us to repent of these sins. If you are already infected, it is not too late to repent either. The Lord will have mercy on his children and whether we are healed now or in the kingdom his mercy is everlasting.

Psalms 103:3  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases

Luke 4:40  Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

We pray for mercy on those that are already infected and that all the Children of Israel wake up and repent of fornication.

New Marriage Trend. “SOLOGAMY” Women are Marrying Themselves!

The Holy Bible warns us that “In the last days perilous times shall come” and that men would be lovers of their own selves.” (2nd Tim 3:1-2) This could not be more evident than in the growing trend known as Sologamy. Sologamy is a primarily feminist movement in which a woman will decided to forego traditional marriage of Husband and Wife and instead marry “THEMSELVES”! Although this movement is relatively new it is gaining traction globally with some websites even offering photography and wedding planning services.

Erica Anderson a Brooklynite who recently married herself was asked to define self marriage to which she replied “Women saying YES to themselves, meaning we are enough even when not partnered with someone.” Self love and self acceptance is not a sin in and of itself, but it must be tempered with the admonition of the scriptures or we risk falling into the sins of pride and rebellion.

Galatians 6:3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

This same pride and rebellion is evidenced when a person casts aside the Biblical definition of marriage of Husband and Wife in favor or a fabricated, narcissistic, ego trip in which they claim that their love and devotion to themselves constitutes a marriage. In the book of Genesis the Heavenly Father created the institution of marriage with Adam and Eve. In the New Testament Jesus Christ himself confirms that this is the one and ONLY true marriage.

Matthew 19:4-6. 4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

 

 

The concept of men or women deciding to remain single is not a sin and even encouraged in the book of 1st Corinthians chapter 7

The Apostle Paul and many others lived the life of a Eunuchs out of service to Christ, meaning they never married and devoted their lives to the ministry. Despite this fact, a mans decision to be a Eunuch or a woman’s decision to remain a virgin was never declared to be a form of marriage.

1st Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. 34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

The above scriptures illustrate the facts clearly that there are benefits to both marriage and remaining single. However, it is the pinnacle of pride and arrogance to believe that a persons love and devotion to self can take the place of what the union of marriage created by God!

Proverbs 8:13The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Boy asks to be Adopted by Stepfather in Viral Video

The Holy Bible tells us that it is more important to be a father to a fatherless child than being a husband to the mother. This all too important point is often lost in relationships today where many times men will openly reject women who have children from prior relationships, or worst still, enter these unions with no intention of having a relationship with these children. As a result many women feel ashamed of these children as they are seen as a hinderance to finding a faithful life partner. This often holds true even for women who have repented according to the Holy Bible and become new creatures in Christ (2nd For 5:17). Too often they still carry with them the stigma of being damaged goods and not fit for marriage.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

In a heartwarming video that has gone viral we see a young child, Kalani Watson ask for a very special birthday present when he asks his stepfather Brandon Williamson to adopt him. The gesture brought Brandon to tears as he signed the adoption papers making Kalani his son in the eyes of the State. What is more important is the testimony recorded in Kalani’s letter to his then stepfather explaining how his love, kindness, faithfulness and discipline makes them father and son already. In the eyes of the Heavenly Father and Christ this could not be more true!

Exodus 22:21-23. Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. 23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;

Job 29:11-12 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me: 12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

The Heavenly Father tells us that it is hateful in his eyes when we do not deal righteously with the fatherless child and widows. The prophet Job also states that one for the reasons why the Most High God showed him such great mercy is because he delivered the poor and fatherless that were in need and had no help. But perhaps the best example of what it means to be a true father to the fatherless and follower of Christ is recorded in the book of James 1:27

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

We salute Mr. Brandon Williamson for fulfilling this commandment and pray that he would continue to learn and grow in the commandments of God. We also pray that the hearts of those who believe in Christ would not be hardened towards those in need and take heed to the admonition of the Heavenly Father and his Christ!

Florida Woman Crashes Car While Praying Behind the Wheel.

In an article which may seem a bit too humorous to be believed, a Florida woman who crashed her vehicle while praying is trending again on social media. Although piety is an admirable trait especially when it takes the form of prayers and devotion, the scriptures tell us that there is a time and season for all things under the sun (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Common sense should dictate that driving may not be the best time to close your eyes and commune with the Holy Spirit as this woman discovered when she plowed through a stop sign and crashed into a persons home. Thankfully no one was injured but she may want to have a talk with her pastor to get more clarity on the scriptures below.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.  / 2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Black Man Gets 45yr Sentence for Killing Police Dog!

In a 2016 story that has resurfaced on social media and since gone viral, a 23yr old black man in Canton Ohio, Kelontre Barefield was sentenced to 35-45yrs in prison for the killing of a K-9 Police Dog. The Dog named Jethro attacked Barfield while he was in the commission of an armed robbery, Barfield fired on the beast killing it. At his sentencing Barfield received 45yrs in prison for the death of Jethro and other charges related to multiple armed robberies. The immediate reactions on Facebook were fast and furious as the court system was blasted for placing more value on the life of a dog than on that of many black men who were murdered offer the past few years and saw NO justice.

Leviticus 24:17 And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death. 18 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast.

The Holy Bible does not condone the killing of this beast but the scriptures DO clearly make a difference between the loss of life of a person and a beast. The laws of God state that the life of a man cannot be replaced but that a beast can be restored and made good, (Beast for Beast). This is hard to understand in a society that elevates beasts, especially dogs over the lives of other human beings. It is a known fact that many dogs live in better conditions and eat better and more frequently than many of the poor of our society. But despite the great value placed on “Man’s Best Friend”, the scriptures tell us that at the end of the day your dog is still a replaceable beast!

Jethro

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Romans 13:1
 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

In an effort to approach this article with clarity and equity it should be noted that the lengthy sentence Kelontre Barefield received was not due solely to the death of the K-9 Police Dog, but also due in large part to the various crimes he committed leading up to his eventual capture. The scripture above tells us that we must be subject to the rulers, judges and authority of this land and that the breaking of the laws will carry with it stiff consequences. This is all the more reason why it is important for our people to turn from lives filled with crime and violence and repent in the name of Jesus Christ to obtain mercy and salvation in time to come.

In a final note, the state of Ohio moved to pass a law calling for stiffer penalties and longer sentences for people who kill Police dogs. It was called Jethro’s Bill!
