Justice Scalia's Mantle has been sent out across the world

Scalia's Mantle has gone forth


This is not the first time I have seen this happen.

"But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you."
-John 16:7


There is a peculiar thing that happens when a righteous man is martyred.  He sends the spirit of God and distributes his mantle over the world.  When jesus was killed the spirit of god came upon christians in a mighty way and paved the way for the worldwide reach of the gospel.


My friend was murdered a couple years ago, his name was Jade Rusche.  He was a very strong man of faith.  I remember having lunch with him and people were talking about what they would do if they won a million dollars.  He was the only one there who said his life wouldn't change at all.  I respected that but I knew that my own life would change, even if just a little.  He taught me so much about cellular biology techniques and took me under his wing when I was a lab dishwasher and secured my gaining a job as a Cell culturist in which I rose to the top and was unmatched virtually around the world.

After learning some unsavory truths about the church we were both a part of I left about a year before he was murdered.  He took in a troubled member of the church as a roommate and was trying to help him.  Maybe he rebuked him too much but in any case this man turned on him and shot him then committed suicide.  I knew this was a failure of the church by condemning people and belittling people who didn't follow their advice.  But Jade sent out the spirit when he left and his mantle went out and many former members including myself shed light on and exposed publicly the bad practices of the church and ultimately the church doesn't have a meeting place any longer.  Even people who never met jade were empowered to speak out. That was the power that came from what Jade sent from heaven.

A righteous man has a lot of power especially when he is killed.  I felt the mantle of Scalia come upon me after his death and I'm sure it came upon many many others.  It gave me the power to speak up and demand investigation and to expose the possibility he was murdered.  And we have seen Justice Thomas to also become invigorated and receive Scalia's mantle an stand up for the rights of Americans.

This just illustrates the point that dead men speak and the righteous can accomplish more in their death than in life.
