Biblical & Constitutional Perspective by
Pastor John Hamel
“Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
for in the image of God made he man.” (Genesis
Almighty God placed
every human being ever birthed into the Earth here on purpose. (Psalm
139:1-24) Whenever a human being is murdered prior to having
opportunity to accept Christ as their Savior they are
cut off from Eternal Life in Heaven and doomed. (Luke
13:3,5; Revelation 20:11-15) When an individual is murdered having
accepted Christ that one is now cut off from the Almighty’s perfect plan
for their life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
deliberate murder is a crime against the individual whose life was
interrupted. That crime must be punished responsibly because it’s
also a crime against God, His creation and all of civilization.
Although people who
kill others unintentionally through negligence should be punished some
other way, God has determined that cold-blooded, calculating murderers must
pay with their own lives as a means of deterring all murder. Someone
said, “I don’t see Capital Punishment deterring other murderers.
They’re still out there doing their thing.” That’s because we have
yet to practice Capital Punishment precisely as God instructs. Stop lying
to yourself. When we obey God fully,
we’ll see a big, big change.
insist, “Capital Punishment is part of Moses’ Law. Christ has
redeemed us from the Law.” What they don’t realize is that Moses’ Law
began in the Book of Exodus. Capital Punishment is first found in the
Book of Genesis. Therefore, Capital Punishment was instituted BEFORE
Moses’ Law, incorporated INTO Moses’ Law and continues AFTER Moses’ Law.
(Romans 13:4; 1Peter ) That
Yet, it seems that
you no sooner get the problem of Moses’ Law sorted out and other Christians
show up on the Penitentiary lawn on the night of a cold-blooded murderer’s
execution. They hold signs reading, “Thou shall not kill.”
(Exodus 20:13) Little do they know, the original Hebrew actually
says, “You shall not take a life in an unjustifiable manner.”
Go to a Hebrew Lexicon on
the Internet and check it out for yourself.
Cold-blooded, premeditated murder is justifiable cause for Capital
Punishment in God’s eyes.
“He that smites a
man, so that he die, shall be surely put to
death.” (Exodus 21:12)
“And he that kills
any man shall surely be put to death.” (Leviticus 24:17)
The Scripture never
contradicts itself. You just have to know how to study it. Reading from the original
languages will go a long, long way towards clearing up lots of unnecessary
confusion amongst Christians.
“But even the
Constitution is against Capital Punishment,” someone said. Wrong
again! The 8th Amendment is against “Cruel or unusual
punishment.” The Founding Fathers didn’t find Capital Punishment to
be either cruel or unusual for cold-blooded, PREMEDITATED murder.
and 14th Amendments recognize the Death Penalty but NOT without
“due process of Law.” Not even a cold-blooded, calculating murderer
can be executed without Constitutional requirements being fulfilled.
Any Christian who
loves America and wants it to go
well with her must obey the Bible.
“Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, [and any Nation]
that it may go well with thee.” (Deuteronomy 19:13)
Only righteousness will exalt a nation, not sin
and disobedience. (Proverbs 14:34)
God said cold-blooded, calculating murderers are to be executed. This
is one example of what Solomon referred to when he spoke of “a time to
kill.” (Ecclesiastes 3:3,8)
However, Defensive Warfare is
different. The Bible and the Constitution of the United States give men and women
the right to defend themselves against aggressor nations and
Any Democracy that believes in peace and freedom must
prepare for defensive war as a deterrent to aggressor Nations. (Numbers
10:9)They’re out there.They hate America.They hate freedom.They hate anybody who has anything that
is unavailable to them.
schoolyard bullies on a national level.If they aren’t held in check, they’ll be in your yard, killing your
family and taking your stuff. This is just a fact of life in a world
that is temporarily controlled by Satan.
(2Corinthians 4:4)Jesus is coming to straighten that all out
Until then we must put up the
“No Trespassing” sign and stay ready to enforce it.The saying, “If you want peace, prepare
for war” couldn’t possibly be more truthful.
Simply put, it is time to read the Bible,
read the Constitution, grow up and adjust when it comes to Capital Punishment
and Aggressive/Defensive Warfare.
Otherwise, you’ll have aggressive,
bully individuals and nations showing up intending to fill their pockets
from our coffers.
It’s God’s compassion for
you that won’t allow them to do so!
They learned it
directly from God’s Law Book, through the Ministers they looked to during the
forming of this Nation.
Say, “Jesus, I choose You
and Your Word. Thanks for opening my eyes to the truth of Capital
Punishment. I see now that it’s neither cruel nor unusual.
Thanks for devising a system that looks out for the innocent. Thanks
for caring for me.” (Romans 10:13)
