In God’s inerrant bible back in time before Moses wrote Genesis, God instituted capital punishment for murder. God issued a commandment against murder. The Devil is a murderer. Murder comes from the heart.


Capital punishment instituted for murder

Genesis 9:6    6 “Whoever sheds man’s blood,

By man his blood shall be shed;

For in the image of God

He made man.


Commandment against murder

Exodus 20:13    13 “You shall not murder.


Deuteronomy 5:17    17 ‘You shall not murder.


Devil is a murderer

John 8:44    44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.


From the heart comes murder

Matthew 15:19    19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.


Mark 7:21    21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,


God abhors murderers and deceivers

Psalm 5:6    6 You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.


God will avenge

Deuteronomy 32:43    43 “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people;

For He will avenge the blood of His servants,

And render vengeance to His adversaries;

He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”


Psalm 9:12    12 When He avenges blood, He remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the humble.


Lord detests murderers

Psalm 5:6    6 You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.


Murder comes from sin nature

Galatians 5:21    21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.


Murder forbidden

Genesis 9:5   Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man.


Murderers do not have eternal life

1 John 3:15    15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.


God abhors murderers and deceivers. God in His time will avenge. The Lord detests murderers. Murder comes from sin nature of man. Un-repented murders have only the Lake of Burning Fire (God’s eternal jail) to look forward too.


Please remember that if we have any hope in our Lord and Savior who gave us “everything” we must continually be faithful to the Lord, first. Remember, God loved us first, even before He created us.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
