WELCOME TO: IN-JEW NATION IN CHRIST COMMUNIQUE: Tuesday, July 26, 2016
Sensitizing U: About our Faith
We, the Inward Jew Nation in Christ (Guyana, South America) believe in a single (Monos) God, the Father of all and Most High God, who is a divine Spirit. [John 4:23-24] Yahweh changes not…. [Malachi 3:6] Again, “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man that He should repent.” [Numbers 23:18-19] The religious beliefs, practices and the Way of Life of the Inward Jew Nation in Christ, Guyana, South America is known by us as In-Jewism. We are a Spiritual Nation. [1 Peter 2:9-10]
InJewism: was coined from the term “Jew inwardly”+ism. (Romans 2:29). It is the religious beliefs and practices and the way of life of the Inward Jew Nation in Christ, Guyana, South America. [We are a Nation. [1 Peter 2:9-10] It teaches the strict belief in a single God (Monotheism). The monotheism that characterizes (distinguishes) InJewism, with origin in Guyana South America, is our recognition and acceptance of Yahweh our Creator of the Universe as the single object of worship: and “though there be that are called gods, to us there is but One God, the Father, for whom we live and serve, through Christ His Son. [Deuteronomy 6:4-9; 1 Corinthians 8:5-6; John 14:6]
What our Symbol of InJewism means to us
The green arrow pointing inward indicates that we are journeying along an inner path of righteousness along which He makes us to lie in pastures ever green in Christ, by faith. It also indicates that our form of Worship and mindset change is inward: the former is spontaneous; while the latter is automatic by the power of the Holy Spirit. [Romans 12:1-2] The Star represents Christ our example, Spiritual Head and Hero, and as the day star, who currently illuminate our minds. [1Corinthians 11:3; 11 Peter 1:19] The yellow border on the edge of the star represents Yahweh’s glory through Christ shining all around and over us, as a prosperous nation under His Sovereignty.[1 Peter 1:9-10] The white background represents the still waters beside which Yahweh by His Spirit leads us; as well as, Peace and Love in the kingdom of Christ. The black color on the symbol represents the enduring faith and strength of God’s people all over the world. The circle like cog wheel represents our Inward Jew Community as part of the universe in constant motion and change. And the yellow at the edge of the cog wheel represents the glorious sun shining down upon us and mother earth. — Pastor: Elder Wilfred A Wilson
WELCOME TO: Moment of Inner Change Coffee/Tea Break Chat

Beloved, this is an entirely new approach to my outreach program so welcome to our fourth Moment of Inward Change Coffee/Tea Break Chat. Please reach for your Bible and your preference drink and let’s start the moment, shall we? Thank you.
According to the Guyana Chronicle Newspaper, a report by Adrian Gordon dated July 20, 2016, stated that, “THREE international experts on human rights and the abolition of the death penalty are in Guyana to engage all stakeholders, including the government and the judiciary on the need to abolish the death penalty.The trio – Dr Ivan Simonovic, Professor Marc Bossuyt and Navi Pillay – are here as part of a Judicial Colloquium on the Abolition of the Death Penalty held at the Marriott Hotel, Kingston. Below is last part of Professor Marc Bossuyt speech.
“…Professor Bossuyt said too that Guyana has taken the first step through the statement of President Granger that no executions will take place here, but noted that the country can also “sign and ratify the second optional protocol which was adopted in 1989 at the General Assembly of the UN.”
The protocol is aimed at the abolition of the death penalty. Some 81 states are party to the protocol and he believes that becoming party to it “is the best way of taking that commitment internationally.”
“If you look at the map of South America, Guyana is now the only country that has not abolished capital punishment…. so either you remain a particular island in the continent or you join the others in that direction.”
He stressed, however, that it is not a matter of criminal policy but a matter of human rights and the right to life.
“We value very highly the right to life and we think that executing people is contrary to the right to life which is the most basic of all human rights,” the Professor stated.
He noted that in those countries where the death penalty has been abolished, it was not a result of general consensus, but a matter of leadership of the political directorate who are cognisant of the fact that the death penalty “has no place in the civilised world of today.”
“One has to show leadership by abolishing the death penalty…. public opinion will, even if some people were opposed to it, they will understand that this has no place in modern society,” he added.
Topic: the First murder, it effects, and the Death Penalty the appropriate divine Solution…
Definition: (1) Capital punishment, also known as the death penalty, is a government sanctioned practice whereby a person is put to death by the state as a punishment for a crime. The sentence that someone be punished in such a manner is referred to as a death sentence, whereas the act of carrying out the sentence is known as an execution. Crimes that can result in a death penalty are known as capital crimes or capital offences. The term capital is derived from the Latin capitalis (“of the head”, referring to execution by beheading).[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_punishment]
The First murder, it effects, and the Death Penalty by the divine Solution
The first biblical record of the first cold blooded murder took place Millennia back when the first born son of Adam and Eve slew his brother Abel. According to the authentic Biblical historical report:
“Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew Him.” [Genesis 4:8]
That cold blooded murder was the root cause of swift divine intervention, judgment and appropriate punishment. And Yahweh, who formed all mankind from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breadth of life; and man, became a living soul, [Genesis 2:7] said unto Cain, “Where is thy brother Abel? [Genesis 4:9] And when Cain replied, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Yahweh, the Creator of all mankind pronounced a curse upon him. [Genesis 4:11]
In the Post Flood Era there were only eight human beings alive in that region, namely, Noah, his wife, their three sons Shem, Ham, Japheth and their wives. And Yahweh blessed Noah and his sons, and commanded them to eat for meat every moving thing that was alive; including herbs. But there was an exception, i.e. they were not permitted to eat “flesh with the life, which is the blood on it. Subsequently, Yahweh announced the Death Penalty, or Capital Punishment.
Capital Punishment was established in Post flood era
Capital Punishment was divinely established in the Post Flood Society of Noah, who was the tenth (10th) Generation from Adam and Cain his son. From Adam to Noah was a generation gap of about roughly 1000 years (one millennium), and that covered the time when the first murder took place i.e. when Cain killed Abel. Nevertheless, Yahweh the Supreme Executive Ruler of the Universe, Ruled that Capital Punishment was His solution to prevent the reoccurrence of cold blooded murders, and encouraged the preservation of His image within each man in His newly launched Post Flood Noahic Society. Thus Yahweh ruled:
“…SURELY YOUR BLOOD OF YOUR LIVES WILL I REQUIRE; AT THE HANDS OF EVERY BEAST WILL I REQUIRE IT, AND AT THE HAND OF EVERY MAN’S BROTHER WILL I REQUIRE THE LIFE OF A MAN. WHOSO SHEDDETH MAN’S BLOOD, BY MAN SHALL HIS BLOOD BE SHED: FOR IN THE IMAGE OF GOD MADE HE MAN.” [Genesis 9:5-6]
Christ attitude towards Capital Punishment
It would be interesting, to see how Christ’s dealt with the preservation of the image of God in man, and the great example He has left His fellow me. It is in A.D.33 and the scene is in the Garden of Gethsemane where Christ and His disciples are, he leaves them to sit and is praying a little further away from them. Finally, He finishes praying and is speaking with His disciples. Now Judas, a disciple of His, comes along with a great multitude including the chief priests and elders with swords and staves and he is now giving Christ, a kiss. Wait a minute, they are laying hands on Jesus and are taking Him away. But a disciple of Christ is defending Jesus. He takes out his sword and strikes the servant of the high priest and cuts off his ear. Admirably though, Christ says to the disciple:
“Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” [Matthew 26:52]
The generation gap from Noah to Abraham was roughly four hundred years (400) when the Death Penalty came into effect in the Noahic Society. [Genesis 11:10-32] And the generation gap from Abraham to Christ is forty (42) two generations. But in His Modern Society in A.D. 33 Jesus the Christ, neither questioned the Death Penalty, nor wanted it to be abolished: instead in support of the Death Penalty, and the preservation of human live, He reminded the disciple of the serious consequences of taking a man’s life in cold blood, and made him exercise restraint when He yet another time said to Him, “Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” [Matthew 26:52]
My thoughts and convictions
If we are conscientious and take Matthew 26:52 within the context of scripture: then we should agree together that the Death Penalty supported by the Constitution of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana does not in itself pose any problem to Guyana, or our Guyanese Society period. Instead, it does, however, serve to ensure the security of the Guyanese people in a great way, and all who come here: and at the same time it is symbolic of our acceptance of, and obedience to, the divine Rule of Yahweh our Supreme Ruler of the Universe. [Genesis 9:5-6]
But the real problem, however, lies with the individual/s: in terms of (1) how much respect he/she has for the Death Penalty and the Rule of Law of Yahweh; and (2) their mindset at that crucial moment of an incident when he/she is tempted to kill an unarmed individual /s in cold blood for no real reason at all: whether carrying a licensed gun or not. For example: as in the case with that zealous disciple of Christ, who was in the Garden of Gethsemane with Him, when he drew his sword and cut off the ear of the chief priest’s servant, only to hear the voice of Christ which said to Him, ” “Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” [Matthew 26:52]
Finally, the Death Penalty is by no means outdated in any Modern Society, and should not be used as a determining factor to prove, if, whether, or not a Society is a Modern one. The mere fact that Death Penalty is the Rule of Yahweh, the all wise, omninicient Supreme Ruler of the Universe, and that it was acknowledged by Christ, makes it more the merrier a Modern Society to the God fearing. Besides, Christ is the same yesterday, today and for ever: and so is His Death Penalty, in His Upper Universal Civil Rights Policy [Hebrews 13:8] Amen.
When individuals, spiritual and political leaders humble themselves, repent and return to Almighty God, with broken and contrite hearts: they through demonstrate exemplary leadership by obeying the Word of God, and Rule of God on the Death Penalty, or Capital -Punishment. And even those who oppose the Death Penalty now will understand its usefulness in best of modern day societies in controlling and hindering the senseless and cruel slaughter of man in cold blood; by his fellow man.
