Bible Reading: 1 kings 21: 1-16

Memory VerseThe trouble they make for others backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. Psalm 7:16 (NLT)

Around this time in Year 1982, precisely the 9th of December, a 30-year-old woman was raped and stabbed in her Baton Rouge home in Louisiana by an unknown black male. On the 4th of January 1983, a 22-yr-old black male named Archie Williams was arrested as the culprit, a crime he knew nothing about. He knew he was innocent and didn’t commit any crime but as a poor black kid, he didn’t have the economic wherewithal to fight the state of Louisiana. During his trial it was discovered that the fingerprints found at the crime scene were not his own.

Williams also had three witnesses that came forward to testify that he was at home sleeping when the crime occurred and the victim herself wasn’t able to identify Williams as the culprit but succumbed after intense pressure by the police. The victims neighbour also said the culprit was taller than Williams. Even with all these facts proving that Williams was innocent, the state of Louisiana convicted Williams of the crime on April 21, 1983. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without a possibility of parole to a prison called “Angola”, the BLOODIEST PRISON in the United States.

A 22-yr-old black male who committed no crime was sent to life imprisonment to a jail made for “Beasts” because the state wanted someone to pay for the crime. Days turned into weeks, weeks into months, months into years and years into decades with no help in sight. The story of Archie Williams is one of many such news. There are many destinies in the prison wasting away. Friend, the days are evil. Obviously, there was an evil conspiracy in the heavens  perfectly orchestrated against his destiny. Shall we cry to God that as the year runs to an end, we will not suffer for the sins of another man.

QuoteAny trap set for me, “I jump and pass”.

Prophetic Decree: Owners of evil load shall carry their load, in Jesus name.
