As I wrote in this last post, about judging a matter, there are times when you are especially pressed, to seek God for wisdom, in a matter. He does tell us, if we seek Him, and ask for wisdom He will give it to us liberally.
IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY AND UPBRAIDETH NOT; AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM. JAMES 1:5.
But I want to talk about being careful, not to give Him lip service, or to forget about who He is, or His ways. I am at this point in my life, in my walk with Christ, and with just an understanding of who I am, that I can blow it. In other words, in my own ways, in my own thinking, I can make a mistake, I can miscalculate, I can make errors, that can affect an outcome.
When I say this, it is because its not that I don’t always trust my ability, but I trust Gods ability more. I can make some decisions, because I know truth, I can have a clear sense of discernment, because of who He is in me, and what His word says, and yes, one does know, like I said in my last post, that one can know right and wrong.
But, to be honest, I have learned in wisdom, that I should pray about everything, even as I start my day, so I can have His guidance.
But I guess, because right now I am pressed with a decision in my own life, where I need wisdom, I want to seek God. I don’t want Him to just give me what I want, but I want what He wants.
Because if I seek Him, it will be the best answer possible. It will be blessed. Friends, again, because so many of us, seek counsel, or wisdom from other ministries etc. We sometimes trust them to give wisdom, or guidance, and when they don’t know what God says, according to His word, a holy word, a good King James Bible word, they can mislead people. And you all know me by now, that I do not advocate any other Bible but this. For the many reasons, the wording can be corrupted by changing, adding, or deleting word. And scripture warns us not to do that.
But, I want to be honest, and humble in the sight of God. I myself, give advice, but I pray, I never get so “puffed” up or arrogant that I think so highly that I would mislead you. We are human, we make mistakes, and when we do, we should be humble enough to admit a fault.
This is why, even in the context of this message, I am saying Lord, I know you are the answer. Not me, not my desire, but you. So I release this to you Father, your will be done. Guide me, give me direction, but let me not make a mistake because I am so puffed up with myself. I can make mistakes but you never do. Lord I ask this in Jesus name, so I can give you glory, so I can say, Look what the Lord has done for me. But its all about you, dear Lord. And I do ask for an answer because I know the difference now. I have had leanness in my soul. Oh Lord, and just your fellowship in all matters, your presence, your beauty, so inspires my soul. I need you Lord. Help me.
You know folks, I guess, with wisdom one can see, with clarity, He is the way, the truth, and life. And I don’t want anything else to interfere. I am tired to be honest, of the mistakes I have made. I have made so many. But I don’t want to look back. I want to press toward the prize.
But to be lean in my soul, would happen and is because I gave Him lip service. I did not thank Him. I did not take into account His words or His commandments, his Ways.Oh that hurts me to know, I would offend God. Leanness is because one uses God, as like an Atm. And that is so insulting to Him. No wonder, many are misguided. But I want His wisdom, to please Him.
THEN BELIEVED THEY HIS WORDS, THEY SANG HIS PRAISE. THEY SOON FORGAT HIS WORKS; THEY WAITED NOT FOR HIS COUNSEL: BUT LUSTED EXCEEDINGLY IN THE WILDERNESS, AND TEMPTED GOD IN THE DESERT. AND HE GAVE THEM THEIR REQUEST; BUT SENT LEANNESS UNTO THEIR SOUL. Psalms 106:12-15.
He sent leanness, friends, have you ever just given a kid something to shut them up? Well thats wrong. They need to understand we all need to understand, some things are not good for us, and there is a reason. And He knows what the total outcome will be in any situation. Do you see why, this message is so important?
No, I don’t want to make mistakes that could just be avoided, if I seek Him. If I pray, if I live a life worthy of the calling of His sacrifice on that cross. If I don’t try to pull the wool over His eyes, because He is not fooled, He is not mocked. No, I want His will, in my life. Starting over, every day, one learns, if we only seek Him. If we are obedient to His truths, and implement them in our lives, no matter what others think. This is the best thing for me, and I don’t live for people, I live for God.
I pray, my post today inspires you. To know Him. What a mighty God I serve, I thank Him, I praise Him, and yes, I want to obey Him, because I love Him, not to make myself happy, but because of who He is.
He is God almighty. And that makes me happy, if I make Him happy first. Comprende?
Love ya all, just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

Yes, there is a difference between judging a matter, and knowing right from wrong. Yes, I question authority. I question it in all aspects, and I do not always take what someone says as truth, unless it is according to Gods Holy word. My King James Bible.
Recently, a very high profile ministers wife, said something very disturbing. And I question it. Some might say, I was judging. Some might say, “touch not my anointed”. Some might even say the devil is an accuser. But when you know right from wrong, I question authority.
I know what the scripture says. And in my heart, first and foremost, I want to please God. Not man, not people, and not myself, as this high profile ministers wife said. And implied strongly. That is self. That comes from the devil. Self- is always a characteristic from the devil. “Do good for your own self” as she said… Is the way of the world thinking.
This kind of thinking is thinking in the flesh, and not in the spirit. The spirit of the Holy spirit. It is a spirit that comes from hell itself. And we have to be mindful, of carnal thinking.
And it is not bad to do good for yourself. My problem, and that what I considered was bad in knowing right from wrong, was that it undermined God, as if He was a second thought, to be obedient. As if making ourselves happy, was the priority. Those were her words. Look for the video, by these key words to know the difference, but I won’t list it.
But what He wants is obedience, because we love Him first and foremost, the fear of God, as I share in my scripture below. And not believing every “Feel good message” because again that is demonic.
And that was what was wrong. Oh friend, giving God glory, and putting our own thinking to the side, makes the difference. I know the spirit of it, and I know when we try to put ourselves first, and make God an after thought, as she implied, its wrong.
Am I judging, no I am trying to teach someone, who might not know Gods word, to know the difference. So I question it. If I was judging, I would give a sentence, or a fine to pay, like in some religions. God almighty, will have the final word, and be the judge in this matter, and all matters for that consideration.
We are judged by our words. And either our words will justify us, or condemn us. The words that she spoke, will either justify or condemn her. And the thing is, people do not realize that when we speak, we are either being judged, to either be justified or condemned. One cannot just say something, and not have it considered, as either right or wrong.
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:34-36.
Another reason, why I only choose King James words, because there is too much corruption in other Bible versions, where meanings are distorted. I want Gods holy word, the purest form by the King James, that has not been revised. So I can know Gods heart. Judging, no? But knowing right from wrong. Am I judging someone even publishers, who have revised Gods holy word and saying they are evil? No I am saying in this teaching moment, that I know the difference as right and wrong. This is why I make the distinction, even in passing.
I am not judging it, I am questioning, why would you say this? Because it was wrong. When we have the privilege to be in contact with others, we have a responsibility to know Gods Holy word. I know my King James Bible, and I do question authority.
I have been in situations where authority, misunderstood, and even judged me. I think of Christ in this example, and how the Pharisees misunderstood Him. They judged the Son of God. Christ knew right from wrong. And He was the living example of the truth. Even Pilot said, what is truth? No one taught Him truth. Christ would have if He had the time. So I use my time, now, to teach this distinction.
We have a responsibility, to know Gods word. No excuses in this world is worth putting this precious gift aside, so we are not deceived. Yes when you know the difference, you are not judging. You know right and wrong. The devil is always twisting scripture, to make it seem like a person is. And judge not, is one place that he does. And there are so many ways the enemy can deceive someone. And the enemy uses people in authority, and people who are “wolves in sheeps clothing.”
But if I can even spare someone and say no, like I did in this situation, this is not judging. I am trying to teach someone that there are some things that are just wrong. This was a teaching moment, not a judging moment to say…God is always the priority.
Gods word, is first and foremost, and its not that difficult to comprehend. If you make God your first priority, the rest will follow. The blessings, the understanding, the knowledge. But if you put self first as this woman implied, you are doing your own soul a disservice.
Be not wise in your own eyes, but fear God, if you fear God, you take to heart what the Holy spirit says to you. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:7.
And it told me as I read that, that is wrong! I did not judge, I saw the lies of the enemy, and I know right from wrong. And I did it, to warn others, because God loves them and because right is right, and wrong is wrong. This was a teaching moment for me to use truth to warn others. And like a good friend of mine, whose opinion and mine seem at odds with one another said, that “It is kind of hard to defend someone, when they should know the truth. But Christ can defend her, and this is what we pray for as she learns the truth. Because the enemy, wants all of us to be in confusion, and her being in a high profile place, makes it look like she should know better, but she does not in this instance.
I pray for this woman, for she should know the difference. I pray, her eyes are opened. I pray she repents. I pray she makes a wrong right, and sees the difference. Will I name her? No the moment has passed, but maybe someone will show her this, to show her, God is always the priority, not self.
Yes, I question authority, and I recommend you do too. Not only to learn, but to know the difference, but you my friend, get into Gods word, a good King James bible and know it for yourself. So you can please God, not people, not even yourself first, but God.
And as I am about to close, I also want to make the effort to say I love this ministry. This man of God, and His wife. I do. I have gone to see them and tuned in. I have not always agreed with their methods. Especially when it comes to watering down the gospel. But I have loved them. And I still do.
You see, when I say all this, I say it because if we love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, you want them to grow. Because they have access to make a difference in the body of Christ. And really, its all for Gods glory, if we do it in love. So I hope I am forgiven too, but again, my heart is to please God, first and foremost.
And I share all of this humbly, because I am not always right. But God is. And when I make Him the priority totally, I can be right, and I can know the difference, without judging. I can understand. And this is what we all need to do to grow.
Blessings, and love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Romans 1:21-22
And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit have judged already, as though, I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ. To deliver such an one unto satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the spirit of the Lord Jesus. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us. I Corinthians 5:2-7.
Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy Salvation say continually, Let God be magnified. Psalm 70:4.
Declare His glory among the heathen, His wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens. Honor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. Psalm 96:3-6
For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: Thou are exalted far above all gods. Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness. Psalm 97:9-12

I call it a spirit of depression, because it is. And when you understand, why things come and happen, you can fight it effectively. You can get to the root of the problem.
I address, this in view of what has happened recently, to the beloved, Mr. Williams. And my disclaimer is this, for I do not know what “demons he dealt with”. But there is one name greater then any demon, and that is Jesus Christ. But I do understand the evil of it, and I will explain further.
But I do so carefully, because as I see how it took the life of this beloved man, I am careful, because one never, ever knows what someone is going through, or has gone through. This is one reason, we should always be sharing the gospel, and our own testimonies, because Jesus has made a difference in our lives. And, this is why we must offer love to one another, as Christ commanded, and yes be very careful with judging. Please I repeat, be careful, how you judge a matter or a person.
And I bring it up, because I have dealt with depression in my life. In my own life, I have seen it, and yes even in my mothers. And I saw she never did overcome it, sadly, even to her, death. For her depression, made her so angry, that she died sad, angry, and miserable.
And I am opening myself in some ways, yet, I am keeping a sense of privacy, as I express this, because I also guard myself.
But depression, does come from the pit of hell. We do deal with demons. And when someone says that, it is not far from truth, because it is truth. And if people could understand it, as a spirit first, then you can combat it. You see, the enemy the devil, comes to kill, steal and destroy, and if he can do that, he will win. Jesus, knew, that the enemy came to hurt us, in all aspects of our life, so Christ became the penalty of sin, to take the “legal” right from the devil. But the devil will still try and hurt us, so we have to know how to take the word of God, and we have to know how to fight a good fight of faith, by giving it to Jesus.
What has worked for me, and again this is my disclaimer, but if one does have it, they can fight it. By prayer, yes, even fasting, and praising God. You see, when we seek God, who is a “spirit” and we worship Him, in spirit and truth, we can have a weapon, to fight the enemy. Gods enemy hates praise. He hates it, so when we praise God, and I say doing this openly, and as often as possible, God enters into the situation, and wards the devil away and takes the spirit of heaviness, and depression from us.
Joy, is replaced with a sense of trust in God, and the victory is ours. The demons leave.
I have learned, and I know, even many of my friends see, I praise God often, but this is my main weapon against the enemy. Prayer and praise to God. I give glory to God, in anything, because I do battle depression.
I have dealt with something, most of my life. And I still have hope God will rectify this situation. I know it needs His hand to make a way, in the provision of it. But what keeps me sane, balanced, and yes joyful, is that my commitment is to Him, with all my being. With all that I can, I pray, praise Him, give Him glory and honor. Maybe now some can understand, why I do it so often.
You see, we have power of life and death in our tongues. Read Proverbs 18:21 King James. When we openly speak, and articulate praise to God, this principle goes in effect, and the victory is ours. I speak this, because it has worked for me. Friends, the “wisdom skill” is this. To avoid depression, speak, and give God glory, as you pray. I know to the atheist, to the unbeliever, this is nonsense.
But to those who believe, the foolishness of this brings the power of God. I don’t care what the atheist, or non-believer thinks. This is my saving grace by Jesus Christ. Knowing Gods Holy word, my King James Bible, is my weapon, my sword of truth, and I trust it with all my being. I daily take Gods word, for strength, and understanding. To know God, to know what pleases Him, and as I do, I find the armor of God is placed on my heart to protect me, with love, for He is love. It protects my mind, no depression is not what I have, as I seek God, and praise Him, with all my being. So yes, I speak glory to God!
Friend, this is a very deep, and profound thing, but if you have problems yes try this, I also recommend you get good spiritual counseling, that is King James Biblically sound, and that you do not walk in the valley of the shadow of death alone. So yes, find help! Pastors, friends, in Christ, and Christian counseling, etc.
Do not give into the temptation to commit suicide. Do not! This is a permanent solution to a problem that can be rectified by Jesus. This is my wisdom key for you, I pray, you find peace, for this is what Christ has promised. I do understand, you, and I know sometimes, you feel there is no hope. But there is. Jesus is that hope.
I understood this, that is why I wrote my two books, How To Have Faith, and Behavioral Curses That Change with Jesus. I understand. I want to help you, even in this brief post. But go to God, go to Him, cry repent, and seek Him, and yes repentance is good for the soul, it is a cleansing. There is so much more, but Jesus is that cure for depression. Much love, Jesus I adore you! And thank you for saving me, and showing me a better way.
God bless you friends, may this Wisdom Skill bring you hope….Elena Ramirez
PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU: NOT AS THE WORLD GIVETH, GIVE I UNTO YOU. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID. JOHN 14:27.

I know that this may sound strange, to some especially who do not understand, this love of Christ. They do not understand, because they have not totally given Him their hearts….
But I want to be in love with Jesus so much, that I want to give Him my heart every day. Like when I first received Him in my Salvation.
I want my heart tender, and broke, knowing what He did for me on that cross, that I never, ever want to sin purposely again. I want to love what He loves, and yes hate what He hates, but having such a peace in my heart, that I would not give place to the enemy.
That anything of the enemy, would not be received in my heart. That the Love of God, which is the armor of God would protect me. So that the ploys, the tactics of the enemy would not take affect to change me, or to be mean spirited, cruel, or harsh. So I would not be selfish, or vain, or do or yes, feel anything that grieves the Holy Spirit.
For this makes a heart ugly, and cold. And to be honest, this scares me, greatly. Because I know the love of Christ.
No, I don’t want anything, that would take away that sweet spirit of God. Fame, money, even favor, is not worth it, if it would change me, to lose that sense of who Christ is.
Oh dear friends, as I grow older and wiser, in who I am in Christ. I realize how precious our salvation is. It is to be cherished, it is to be honored, and respected.
The enemy, does want to deceive so many before Christ returns, and it wounds my heart, as it does Christ to see Christians, doing things like the world does.
Like unforgiving, or hating, other people, or just being uncaring, and unloving. They don’t know some of them, that they have been deceived, but those ugly spirits, have taken control of them, and I believe many have lost their salvation. They are not taught to guard it protect it, and be aware of how the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
Or if they have, they have disregarded the promptings, the sweet voice of Christ, that warns us, if we listen.
Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
Knowing, that love, yes sweet love, is what always makes a difference in a heart.
This is what truly won my heart to Christ to begin with, for I saw how great His sacrifice. And…when I saw that He healed my heart, to know how beautiful His love is. If I give Him, my heart, every day, He will guard it, with His love.
He will protect it as a precious jewel, but dear ones, I have my part, we all do, and if we do not let Jesus rule our heart, then we can open the spiritual door to things we would never want for even our enemies. Let Christ guard your heart.
I say it in love, but I hope you hear my words in your own heart. That you take to heart, how important it is in the fear of God as well, to be mindful, to be humble, soft, and pliable in the masters hands.
To protect your heart from the ways of the world. Oh I pray this every day, that is why I say, I want to give my heart to Christ every day, so He can deliver me, protect me, and bless my heart, with His love. Another reason, why I will only use a King James Bible, to hear only His voice, and to not hear Gods voice only would be deception, if I listened to anything but Him.
Nothing, dear friends is worth losing the peace He gives us, the tender reassurance, of our Salvation. Nothing is worth that. Be very aware of the enemies tactics.
Only Christ can restore our hearts, even after salvation. For we can fall, and do come short of the glory of God. This is why I believe in daily repentance as well. May God guide you.
May you be inspired by His love, to make a commitment to daily give Him your heart. Much love, and with His thoughts, not mine, to remind you.
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul, shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10.
A Prayer of Hope…
Lord, I ask that you protect my heart, guard it, prompt me, by your Holy spirit, to daily make a commitment to you, to remind me to be careful, and may I have the armor on and quench the fiery darts of your enemy. Help me to be not deceived by the cares of the world, or even let hate, anger, or a mean spirit, invade my thoughts, when Lord, your sacrifice was so great.
Lord help me to help others see that the enemy does deceive and we can lose our sense of you, by giving place to the enemy when we allow, yes allow hate, or anything that is not of you, in our hearts. Help keep my heart soft because of your love, dear Jesus, please help me…
You see this scares me if I would ever lose your love, and reassurance you give when we have given our hearts to you for guidance. I want to have a beautiful soul, that gives you glory, and nothing else, not for my glory, but for yours.
In Jesus name. Amen
