You may not know me in the carnal sense of speaking but I'm sure our
spirits have showered each other with great blessings of comfort and peace
in the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, so please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Johnny Johnson, a ten-month Christian on Death Row.
Now, I do not use the term "death row" as a means of pity, but as a means
of blessing. What do I mean by the statement I just made? Please
let me explain.
I had many opportunities to heed God's warning in the free world, but I
chose to be ignorant of His knowledge (before my Christ-ship) of how to
fight the spiritual forces of the dark world. And by heeding unknowingly
to those spiritual hosts of the dark world, I now live in what I call "The
World of the Dead."
I've been blessed to live 39 years plus, though at one time in my life
I used to ask why. I've never been married nor do I have any children
that I know of but I do love children very much. As a matter of fact,
back in '82 I counseled retarded children in Austin, Texas my home
town. Speaking of Austin! It's a wonderful place!
Hopefully I can tell you about it some day if you decide to correspond
I came up in many different foster homes starting at the age of 6.
So I never knew my family in the normal sense of knowing one. I love
to sing songs of praise to God. I have a few hobbies that consist
of jogging, and crafting.
I've become a sports fan since my incarceration because of so much free
time I believe. Basketball is a favorite sport and I can even play
a little bit. Most of the inmates on Death Row call me Rev. Bruiser.
Not because of my name but because of my religion and because I preach
just a wee too much.
Most of all I love the Word of God. For me, I would have perished
before they gave me the death sentence and went on to eternal damnation.
But now that the Holy Spirit of God has moved me forward towards His eternal
Plan for my Salvation. This will be a difficult challenge in my Christian
Now I must learn even more to depend on Him for deliverance. This
does not mean I simply sit down and let my mind go blank and attempt to
block out reality. To me, total dependence means I am going to trust
the Lord constantly.
Well I would like to say much more but do not want to say it in this letter,
for I hope to correspond with you and then we can talk about things together
and have a joyous time.
