Praise God for the police officers in New York City as well as every other city in the United States. Praise God for their willingness to submit to rules of engagement that put them at risk every day for our safety, security and blessing. Praise God that their families, who say good bye to their officer every day, not knowing if they will be home after their shift. Praise God for officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who served their lives as honorable police officers and whose lives were suddenly ended by a wicked Ismaaiyl Brinsley.
Brinsley deserves a just and speedy trial according to the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States. The trial should be set up within two weeks, completed in one week and his sentence publically executed the following day, as his jury decides. We all need to heed,
2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. (Rom. 13:2-3 NKJ)
Interestingly, Ramos’ commanding officer, Captain Sergio Centa said Ramos was studying to become a pastor.1 May his son pick up the mantle and many more young men willingly pursue ministry following Ramos’ example. May they use Ramos’ study books to expand their understanding of evil and how to lead people to green pastures.
At the funeral for Officer Ramos, there were thousands of police officers from almost every state of the Union, including California and Alaska. May the long blue line stick close and continue to hold the line of wickedness. May the police be blessed and may they enjoy rewards and blessings. Thank you to all police officers.
