THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION; WHOM SHALL I FEAR? THE LORD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY LIFE; OF WHOM SHALL I BE AFRAID? PSALMS 27:1
I have been around the church block for a long time. I have been in and out of conferences, and discussions, that pertain to truth, to God, and what the Bible states. I choose to pick my truth, from the King James Bible. Because it is truth, it is holy, and it has not been corrupted. When I share this truth, I do not always get opened arms.
But because I have been a seasoned Christian for a time, I see there is a trait, that I am sure offends God, and that is being “cowardly.”
Knowing the truth, knowing what God says, yet denying it. Denying it, so people won’t get their feelings hurt. Denying it, because they think well if I speak this truth, this person, will stop being my friend, and I may not win them over to Christ.
Yet, because they deny the truth, from this person, they hurt themselves as well. And it is cowardly…
I have heard, the term “legalistic” over, and over again. And every time, I heard it, I always took it to mean, you just don’t hit someone on the head with the Bible.
But now when I hear it, from a Christian, they totally disregard Gods truth, and the legal aspects of it. And they get into this mode of denial, and make excuses. And the greatest defense they use….is Don’t judge me!
Grace, and sloppy, religious beliefs, have caused many Christians to think, the “law” is not necessary, because Christ died for us, and if we believe, we have grace.
Yes, we do have grace, but we do not abuse this grace. We do not wink our eyes at sin, and turn away. We do not condone bad behavior, when the Bible is very clear about this or that. We do not pick and choose what we want from Gods word. And if you really love someone, like Christ called us, to do you tell them the truth, as much as it may hurt. You do use love, but you do not deny Gods truth!
God is legalistic! He created His laws, His commandments, and His ways, so we can avoid sin, so we can be right with Him. We do not disregard the law, nor close our hearts to these truths, these principles, that help us grow.
No, when I see someone, who has an opportunity to speak truth, and they deny it, they are cowards to me. Let me tell you, I have been so broken, and hurt, that at this point, nothing else matters to me, but Gods truth. And so I am not afraid, to speak truth. That is all I have in so many ways….because it brings me righteous fruit!
I try always to be gracious, and kind, but the truth has to come out! I love truth. I love that it sets me free, and that it sets those who embrace it, free too!. But I will not deny truth, for I will stand before God.
Fear, yes, I fear God. I don’t fear telling people the truth, I fear the one, who will put my soul, in heaven or in hell. And I pray we all get it right. But legalism is a good thing. Being cowardly, when you have the opportunity is a bad thing!
When I see this in a leader, or a ministry, and they choose being popular, over speaking truth, all I can do is shake my head and pray. Because so many in the body of Christ are losing truth, because some of these leaders, do not speak truth, they deny Gods truth.
And yes they are popular. Look at their fruit. They tickle peoples ears, and stray away from the truth, so they can be popular. Sadly deceiving people. Christ told us, beware, of those who deceive.
I don’t want that. My ministry is small, but I will not choose popularity over God. Because again, I will stand before Him.
We gotta grow, we have to change, we have to see Christ is the way, the truth and life. We have to see, that Gods ways are not our ways. But if we deny truth, we are cowards. In his eyes. He does weigh us and He looks to see, the fruit of our own lives.
So when I say, I see the fruit of something that is wrong, I am not judging you. I am judging the fruit, that will hurt you, deny you, Gods blessings, that will open a door to the devil. Because it is deceptive, it misleads, it hurts you….
I may be harsh, but if I can spare someone hells fire, then so be it. I would rather shout at the baby, to stay away from the fire so he or she won’t burn themselves.
But there are times, you have to speak the truth, and you cannot deny it, or you will be a coward. And the sad thing, is your own courage will not be built up. Your own ability to grow, will be stumped, because you denied the truth to someone who so needed it.
Do you want God to say that to you? That you denied his truth, and that you are a coward. I don’t….
Just my thoughts for the day…..

Love….I sense in my spirit, that the Lord is longing to draw us closer to His throne. To have a sweeter, and deeper relationship with Him. To know Him, to see His power, and His glory revealed. To have more of a personal relationship with Him. To know true love.
There is a void, that we all have, if we are not close to Him. If we deny Him, or if we do not work at this relationship of love. For you see, it is a relationship.
It is not one-sided. He has done His part, in so many ways, by revealing to us, a savior, and that is Jesus Christ.
God is a King, the King of Kings, and a King, does not have to do things according to what people expect, but we are to do things according to what He expects.
Merciful, and kind, loving, He reveals Himself to us in a sunrise, a sunset, a bird, a flower, a healing, an after thought, a miracle….
Yet, I believe He is ready to step out and do more, and reveal more. If we only believe. If we only obey. If we only take what He has given to us, and we honor it. We hold it as precious. We do not abuse, this gift called grace. For we know it came at such a great price of our Lord Jesus.
Hungry, and thirsty for our savior, will cause us to be fed, and to fill that void in our life. Searching even “how” to love Him. Even through the good times. Sometimes, the bad times, the times, where it seems He does not answer you, makes you realize, who He is. It makes you realize, how important it is to get it right according to His standards.
You know the scripture says, we reap what we sow. So you see, what you have done, in the past, to even get you to where you are now.
Nothing fills that void, like being near Him. Nothing fills that void, if you have done something that will cause His holy spirit to be grieved. But love, love will keep you. Love will remind you, by the Holy spirit, not to grieve Him.
He says be Holy, for He is holy. How can we, when we let other things get in the way of our relationship? How can we, if we choose not to obey? If we choose the ways of the world?
There is no way. Only Christ is that way, the truth, and life. If we would only see, with our spiritual eyes, and heart, how precious our Lords love is.
This is not about religion! Please, no matter what you have been taught, please know, God is real. But He does have His ways, His expectations. His standard…..His love….
We are on the vine with Christ. But, we cannot not bear fruit for Him. We cannot withhold love, or withhold praise to Him. We have to constantly be in a place, where we are loving Him, seeking Him, being obedient to Him, serving Him, serving others, walking in love.
Growing! Not complacent, not passive, not quiet, not burying our talents in the ground, and not watering them so they can grow.
No we have to constantly be in a place, where we are yes hungry and for Him, for the King. Being an expression of love.
Dear one, I just know, that we must seek God, we must let Him fill that void in our life. Life is not life without Christ.
If you are not sure, how to find Christ, just call on Him, do some soul searching, some searching of King James scripture, and look for the holiness, and the authenticity of a real relationship, based on love. I pray you find it.
I pray I do too. I never want to lose this sense, of giving Him praise and glory. I never want to lose this great love I have for Him. But I have to do my part. I have to nurture this love. With Him, with others, and I cannot let other priorities, or success, or even failure, get in the way of that.
Finding my balance, finding my place, to always be near Him to fill that void, is my responsibility. And I take it to heart. I take it to understand, this thing of being fulfilled in life requires my part, and I know, nothing else can take the place of my Lord.
Nothing, so I guard my heart, with all that I can, to please Him. I felt led to share this today,
I pray you are inspired as well. May you see, how important it is to let Christ fill that void in your life.
Blessings, and love, Today is Valentines Day. (2014) Lots to do, but love has to be the priority. Even as I write this. I pray, you sense, and know how much God loves you, and you sense and know how much you love God. Love never fails…
It may just begin, by repenting, and accepting Christ as your Lord and savior. Even if you have done that before, but you sinned, clean the slate. Love….

O GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD; CALL UPON HIS NAME: MAKE KNOWN HIS DEEDS AMONG THE PEOPLE. SING UNTO HIM, SING PSALMS UNTO HIM: TALK YE OF ALL HIS WONDROUS WORKS. GLORY YE IN HIS HOLY NAME: LET THE HEART OF THEM REJOICE THAT SEEK THE LORD. SEEK THE LORD, AND HIS STRENGTH: SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE. REMEMBER HIS MARVELLOUS WORKS THAT HE HATH DONE; HIS WONDERS, AND THE JUDGEMENTS OF HIS MOUTH. PSALM 105:1-5
Look at these scriptures again. Breathe them in, and do so knowing God has prepared them for you to see, for His glory. The glory of God. God gave them to me, as I opened my Bible, after I prayed, to give Him glory in this post.
I want to write about miracles, and how God deserves glory honor, and praise in everything.
I want to write about it, because I see people, discount, and yes rationalize God, and the every day miracles, we may encounter. I speak this to the body of Christ, to awaken them from their slumber of the ways of the world. I speak this to the unbeliever, who does not believe in God. Yet has felt His presence. I speak this to the agnostic, and the atheist, who actually serve the devil, by denying God, I speak this….because it needs to be said.
It needs to be said, because God deserves all glory, honor, and praise in everything! I will repeat that, God deserves all glory, honor and praise in everything! Why? because of His goodness. Because of His mercy, because He is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, He is sovereign, Holy, omniscient. And so much more! How can my mind, even comprehend, all that He is? But He is! He is the great I AM!
Yet there is something in me, that is totally submitted, and loving, to want to give Him glory. To see His name lifted up. To draw people to Him, to know, what a mighty and good God I serve.
Yes, that is in me, and with all that I am and I can do, I want to give God glory. When I share a photo, and I write, glory to God, I see who the majesty of who He is. I see how He separates light, and writes in the sky, to reveal His power, to change the dawn to the day, from the dusk to the night. I see His power, and I want to give Him glory. In the days, He gives me.
I see His hand in every living creature, and every thing that grows, from the teeniest flower, to a mighty ocean, that has been commanded, to stop at the shores. I see all of this. And I do not take it for granted. For it is in life, that we are given to see, and have a relationship with this mighty God, who created yes all of us. So, yes, I want to give Him glory. And so because of this, and in wanting Him to be glorified, dear hearts, I want you to see you also need to give God glory. I implore you to see, with open hearts, who He is.
And what He has done for all of us, God loved us so much, that He sent His only begotten son, that whoever would believe in Him, would not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (paraphrasing King James version)
If you have given your heart to Christ, and you truly have ensured your salvation, with our savior Jesus Christ, then you understand, the great sacrifice, it has taken to give you this gift yes of grace. But it is not to be abused, or taken for granted. For it came with a great price. The price of our Lord, Jesus, who willingly gave His life, so you and I could be set free. He suffered, and yes, by His stripes, we are set free.
But, and I want you to see this, but if we allow rebellion, or any sin, in our lives we are not free. Nor are we healed. And dare I even say, really saved? Really healed, and saved….for to deny God, glory, is rebellion.
And where does rebellion come from? The enemy of God. That ugly old devil. And if you know his ugly personality, you know, that he was jealous of God, and did not want God to get any glory! God kicked him out of heaven for that, because he tried to lift himself up. So, because I know the devil does not want God to have any glory, I need to make sure, in my own way, and as often as I can, I must give God glory. Now this is really important, because people are not in tune to this. To give God glory, even some Christians.
Because the world, we live in has “programmed” us to be rational. To use our “intellectual” thought process to put down the things of God. WAKE UP! This is why the enemy is now, using people, to actually deny God. To not include God in every day living, and even in our institutions. Being offended, because even a Bible or a cross is in a room, or on display. So people can ponder on God, no the devil wants to stop God from getting glory, and he uses people, who have no sense to see this is wrong, and evil. These kind of things come from the devil himself, to try and deny God. Glory…..
So, when a miracle happens, and they do daily, people are not able to see with faith, and give God glory. I have even heard Christians discount the miracles of God, and attribute a miracle, to circumstances. Look, God can use anything, and everything, to make miracles for us, but we must see, it is Him, and give Him glory in it. Let me give you examples, of miracles. So you can see with opened spiritual eyes.
You miss a plane, because you had to search for your keys. Yet sadly that plane crashed, but you were spared. Thats a miracle, where you need to thank God, and give Him glory. You were ill, but God healed you. You attribute it to modern medicine, but it was God, who gave doctors, wisdom to make that medicine. God deserves the glory. There are so many instances, where we avoid things, or may not even see things in the future, or in our own lives, but where we must trust God, for His protection, and deliverance, and give Him glory, and thanks for just every day living. Knowing His true angels are about, taking care of us, and it is because He commands the principles He has placed, in everything, to work for our good, because He loves us, and we must give Him glory.
Recently, I saw a miracle where there was a fire, and all around, this cross, everything burned. Except for the cross. When I read the comments, from some of the people who saw this, I was amazed, at the lack of respect, and yes, stupidity from some people who put this miracle down, and some would rationalize it, as to why it did not burn.
Look, we all need God, we all need miracles from time to time, and to discount, the one who can give them to you, God almighty, to even deny Him, is stupid. There! I said it! It is stupid, because you don’t even have enough common sense, to know God can make a way, when there was no way. Jesus is that way, the truth and life. John 14:6. In everything.
Have you ever thought, you did not get an answer to prayer, was because you did not give God glory? When was the last time you got blessed? Did you forget to give him glory?
I have just learned, no matter what the reason may be, for my miracle, and what God used, to give me that miracle, He deserves the glory. Yes, I am thankful, for what ever He may bring, or use to open my eyes, to see, it is His glory revealed. I pray, you understand with an open heart, to know, it is time, for you as well to open your mouth, and give God glory.
Because miracles, happen every day. You hear it in the news, someone got saved, and avoided something. Or something changed. And instead they just say it was luck, or they don’t even give it much thought. They just ramble on and on, but they don’t see it was God, who did that for them. To give God glory. And yet, it was a miracle.
You see, God created, everything to work, for His glory. Thats the root of it.
If you are wise enough, and open your heart, you will be opened to receive greater miracles, from health to wealth, protection, favor, and so much more. Blessings.
These are blessings, that we need to give Honor, where honor is due. Do you have blessings in your life? Yes you do? From your family to a job, to whatever you have on your back, it should be to the glory of God! Remind yourself, to give God glory, for you never want to give place to the devil. Because His objective is to steal the glory from God.
This is why I am so adamant to read only a King James Bible. It is preserved, by God, with an anointing, and a holiness, that has true power. The devil would love to steal that, so you would not have what you need to get miracles.
Now, I am about to burst someones bubble, and I want to do it in love. But there is someone now reading this, and you are so full of yourself, that you do not see, what God has done for you. You probably have so much success, and wealth, and money, maybe good looks, that you have gotten to a place, where you are so proud, and arrogant, that you don’t see who gave you life, who has ordered your footsteps, to be where you are, and you think every thing you have gotten is by your own accord. Pride again, another ugly characteristic of the devil.
In other words, you think you did it to get this success, that you have. Well let me just inform you, and again in love. It was God, that made a way….and you should give Him glory. And that goes for anybody else who may or not be successful, or thinks they are so high and mighty. It is God! It is God who gives you breath, and in this life, you should be thankful, and you should give God glory.
Use what God has given you in every resource, to His glory. Give, and bless others. Bless God. Because when it is all said and done with, and we stand before Him, the book of life, and the Lambs book of life, will be opened, to see who gave God glory, and who gave their heart to Christ, and everything we have done is recorded. That should be enough right there to put fear in all of us, to give God glory?
All I know, as I conclude. Is that giving glory to God, should be in all of our hearts. Don’t rationalize a miracle. Don’t look at it intellectually, change your heart, your mind, to see God in it, and give Him glory. Speak it to others…
Even if it just seems to be coincidence. Or just something small, that just may have touched you, with a miracle, don’t look for the reasons. Look to the one, who placed the reasons. For His ways, are not our ways, and He does deserve all glory, honor and praise…
Just my thoughts today, and may your miracles be received to give God glory!
With Love, Elena Ramirez

I woke up different today. I woke up, with a new hope, for miracles. I thought to myself, I wrote a book about “HOW TO HAVE FAITH MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.”
To be honest, I have to give glory to God in this, because He spoke it to my heart.
So I have faith, but whats next?
They can happen! Oh I know, that I know the key is in my faith. To having miracles. I know that I know, miracles, are not just an illusion, of some sort. No they are real. Its my inspiration, to get me on another road….maybe for you too. As we walk through life. We need inspiration to know, it can happen!
Miracles, happen every day! Sometimes, we don’t hear of them, and sometimes, we just take them for granted. But they are meant to give glory to God.
That’s my goal in life that I know, that I know it. I am meant to give glory to God. Things are not always easy for me. But that is in my heart, to give God glory, and that makes it easy. For miracles….
You see, knowing who I am, from my conception, I am a miracle! I was not supposed to be born. Long story short, my mother took measures to not have any children. Not just precautions, she had an operation! But my dad prayed for me. And I was conceived, and born. The doctors were in shock! So I am here, and thats a miracle. God made that easy….
Miracles, can happen. And this is what I want you to see. Knowing, sometimes, we can get in a funk, and get depressed, get distracted, to think this is it, it cannot change! But it can!
Oh dear friends, I know, what it is like to get like that. I know what its like to feel trapped, and think, it will never be different. Whatever it is. Sometimes, we get a report, that seems so final. Something from a doctor, or even our own negative thinking. So we limit ourselves, by what reality is. NO! We have to change that kind of “stinking thinking.”
We have to see if we believe, in Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior, that He told us, we would do great things…..He is our savior! And as our savior, He taught us, and showed us miracles! Think of all the miracles He did! The Bible says, He did so many, that they are not even numbered, or recorded!
All I know right now, more then ever! I am holding onto the hope of miracles. I am holding onto the dear Lord. I am holding onto His promises! God does not lie. Man does, people do! That is why, I am so adamant to have a pure holy word, to claim, as that promise, from the King James Bible.
I want my miracles in tact! I don’t want anything blocking that miracle. And if it means I use a pure holy word, that is anointed, that may even sound archaic in sound. I am using it! I love my King James Bible. I don’t want anything to change my miracle, that I can have. I know the scriptures and I know, that if I don’t know something in the scriptures, the Holy Spirit can reveal it to me. Interpret it for me. I don’t know how many times, I just opened my Holy Bible, God spoke to me. But I had my part. I remember when He showed me discrepancies from other Bibles, and I saw, how the devil lies!
Wow! You know, I am just going to keep this short and sweet for now. But I want to close with this thought! Rewire your heart, your mind, you thoughts, by believing in miracles! Like a computer you can be reprogrammed.
Miracles can happen! I have Faith, I wrote my book about Faith….knowing, I had it. But you know, God leads us, step by step. And He led me to today, to say…..
Miracles can happen! I am focusing on that. If your interested in getting my book, to find maybe even one thing, in there that will activate your miracles, please check out this link.
http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com and order my book.
Be encouraged my friends! Be encouraged and don’t give up hope. No matter what you have done, and you think you have blown it, or missed a chance. God can turn it around. God can make a way, where there was no way! HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE! John 14:6.
All we have to do is come to our Lord! Humble ourselves, repent….Ask for wisdom, ask for guidance. Ask Him for that miracle! Tell Him, you know He can do it. Tell Him you align yourself to His truth, and denounce the enemy, in any part of your life! Submit to God! Resist that devil, and he will flee.
God will give it to you, to show you that miracle! Or to prove Himself Mighty! He is almighty God, and I praise Him! Glory to His holy name!
Don’t let the world, or the devil, or the reality of something tell you it cannot change. It can! Have faith! Have hope….Stir yourself up. Get in your King James Bible read His promises! Claim them! Get my book. Give hope to someone else, let it be an epidemic.
What you do for others, can be returned to you. Tell someone, miracles can happen. Tell them you have faith for them. Tell them, love. Love never fails!
It is a principle….there are many secret principles. And love is one of them…I know a few of them. And I know, with new hope today….that I have hope I can have miracles! So can you!
The following scriptures, are the first recorded mention of “miracles” that I want you to see. From my concordance. But in giving glory to God, I want you to see His heart, and what He said about it, and what offended Him. These kind of things can stop our miracles. For it is sin, it is iniquity in His eyes. Let us strive to please our Lord, for miracles. Be blessed, as you read these scriptures. I pray for the body of Christ to see their miracles. To give God glory…..
The Lord is long suffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and four generation. Pardon I beseech Thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of Thy mercy, and as Thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now. And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord. Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice; Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it. But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed Me fully, him will I bring into this land whereinto he went and his seed shall possess it.
Friends, as I close, hearken to the voice of our Lord. Pray your spirit, is right before Him. Follow Him completely. He is the way…Yes and always give Him glory!
Love you all in Christ, Just my thoughts today,

The body of Christ is crippled, and sadly, no one is seeing this. No one calls it out as wrong, and nobody is taking a stand. Well I will. I will, because I love my Lord Jesus. I will, because there are souls at stake. I will, because people, are not seeing the truth. They are compromising who they are in Christ. They have listened to so many who have distorted truth, and have made their own “religion.” I will because I will stand before God. I will write it, and say it is wrong!
The following statement, is not my statement. But because this was shared by a prominent ministry I am using it as an example. These are their words, word, for word. It was not taken out of context, or in part. Let the record show it, for what it is.
Don’t pray and ask God to fight Satan for you. You are the one in authority. Take your responsibility and speak directly to Satan yourself and stand your ground firmly. He will flee!
I have to be honest, when I saw this statement, I felt the hair on my neck stand up! How dare they say this kind of nonsense. Who is the authority? They are talking about? Who is their audience? Is it a born again Christian? Is it someone who has given their heart to Christ? Is it someone who is quoting a compromised Bible? Is it someone who does not know the truth?
Why would they phrase it like that? Don’t pray and ask God to fight satan for you? Whose side are they really on? Thats what I am seeing to question?
Where is the loyalty to God? The submission? I don’t even capitalize the name of the enemy. But they did. That statement, really says a lot, about the stance they take. Responsibility, they threw that out of the window! Responsibility is knowing Gods word, and seeking Him, in every aspect. Including fighting the devil!
The authority, they talk about makes me wonder, is it pride, that thinks they don’t have to pray to God? They can take care of it themselves?
Friends, the King James Bible says, “Pray without ceasing!” Pray!!!! I Thessalonians 5:17. This is how we get victories, this is how we win battles, but we have to pray, they actually say don’t pray and ask God. These are their words not mine!
Yes, there are certain, things God has given me authority over. But the scripture is very clear, in times, of battle, with the enemy, the battle is the Lords. And the submission must be given to God, to have Gods protection. This statement does not address that. Yes there is power, in the name of Jesus, there is authority. But this statement did not say that either!
No, it is not me, it is God, that has that authority. and He gives me yes, authority. Yes, as His child, yes, as His servant. But I still have to submit to Him, first. Then I can have full assurance, by the name of Jesus. They don’t say that in this statement. This is what the scripture says. And this is why, I question ministries, that say stupid things like this.
I think what bothers me the most about this, is that, it is questionable, and vague. So I question it. No matter what the intention was of that ministry, it is a “Mixed Signal” and that is confusing to whoever would read that!
But I never question Gods holy word, from the King James Bible, and this is what we are called to do to defeat the devil. Along with putting on the armor of God.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7.
To me it is stupid. And usually, I am gracious, to give some the benefit of the doubt. But when a high profile ministry says something like that, and also excludes truth, it makes me wonder…What happened to them? I once enjoyed watching them on television.
What Bible are they using? This is not the first time, I saw discrepancies, that I have challenged, and even wrote to them about because of the Bible they used, but this actually got me righteously angry! I am not judging them, I am seeing the fruit, and that is not of God….
Did you know in Galatians 1, it talks about those who pervert the gospel. Read it from a King James Bible. It says they are ACCURSED! I don’t want anything to do with a ministry that perverts Gods word!
They left out that part, that is so important to God. Submitting to Him. Then resisting the enemy. Then the enemy would flee. Why? Because when we submit to God, He is on the case! No devil can stand against God. But our part is to submit to God!
So many souls, read that, nonsense, from this high profile ministry, which I will not name. But how are they to know the truth, unless they know Gods word, themselves? The reactions on that post, was yes, and amen. How the blind, are blinded, because the enemy has deceived them. Trusting these “so-called” prophets. No wonder, so many are crippled. But this statement is so empty, so vague, and yes, so disingenuous, that it makes me think. Sadly…..
It makes me want to scream to Christians, to beware, to be careful not to be deceived. Christ told us let no man deceive you. Matthew 24:4-5. See it from a King James.
We have to know the truth. Christians, and whoever is reading this, believer or non-believer. I implore you. Seek the truth! Seek the true and living God. Seek God and pray. Know the scriptures yourself. Know a King James Bible, so you have the anointing. The holiness, of a Bible, that has not been changed, deleted words, or added words. Use a Holy King James Bible!
If you are in a spiritual battle, because of sin, repent, seek God, submit to God, and His truth, and He will guide you! But always pray to God, always be humble in His sight! Repentant! Because of what Christ did on that cross!
It is sad. This time, in my life, there are very few pastors, or ministries, that I can relate to. The body of Christ should be united. But we are not all on the same page, scripture speaking, and understanding with discernment the true and holy word. Because the word has been changed, and distorted, and because people do not know the difference. People are being deceived. We have to see this.
I pray, for my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray, to shout it out, to warn souls, to save souls, to be careful. This affects so many things, concerning who we are in Christ, and what I see right now, is a church, a body of believers, that do not believe the same things, and I pray God does a new thing. If He uses me, so be it.
If you believe, as I do, about this, I would love to hear from you!
But I see those, who should know truth, and instead, they say strange things like this. Is it pride? Is it wealth, and power, in the body of Christ that has caused them to speak such strange things? I don’t know. I won’t point the finger and I won’t name them, because thats not who I am, but I am seeing this, and all I can do is, seek God.
But I am alarmed.
As I submit to God, as the authority, I will not be deceived by false prophets.
Just my thoughts today…..Elena Ramirez

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME. John 14:6.
The way, for guidance, in truth, and life. Do we seek to know what that way is?
This morning, I woke up with a new sense of hope, for the new year of 2014. This first day of the year.
And on so many mornings, I do hear the prompting from God. As He speaks to me. Sometimes very quietly, and sometimes, very loud, so I know it is Him.
Today, He spoke, firmly, to me, to know that He is the way, He is the truth, and He is life. I took it to heart, to know, that I need to dedicate this scripture this year, as a motivational scripture, a scripture, to inspire me to have a sense, of guidance. To know He is truth, He is life, and most definitely, He is that way!
You see, I want changes in my life. I want changes and progress to give Him glory. Giving God glory is a mission to me, it is my personal agenda, as a goal. For I seek to please Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I just feel as we grow as Christians, more, and more this should be our goal. To give God glory. But how do you do that?
You trust in the fact, with this one scripture, that has so much value to it. To know, how much a treasure these words are to know. Christ is the way! He is Truth! He is life….. Just to ponder on that for a moment, to let it sink in, gives me so much. It inspires me, it tells me hold onto that scripture through everything….
It gives me hope, when I get lost, in the hustle and bustle of life, that He is the way. We walk by faith, and not by sight. And sometimes, we lose our way. I know I have. I am a Christian, but I am like that little lamb, that gets lost now and then, and I have to call out to my savior. I cry out, and He comes to me, and soothes me, and pours oil on my head, and puts me about His neck, and keeps me close to His side. Sometimes, we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, sometimes, we walk where the enemy is close by, and we have to be on guard. We have to let the word, be a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path….
But if I go about wandering around, without knowing, I can get in trouble, if I leave His side, whose fault is that? That is mine! I have to include Him in ALL of my decisions, I need to go to Him in prayer, early in the day, and commit to Him, to help me. Because I ask….I need to commit everything to Him. For me and my family.
So I want to be careful to stay close to His side, because He is the way. If I do not, I can lose my way. I don’t want to lose my way any more…..I am not interested, in trying to find the way, the truth, and life, on my accord. But by His way, His truth, His life. A life, that He gave on that cross to pay my debts! This is my goal….
So, I seek His truth! I seek this truth, from my King James Bible. No other Bible to me is truth. They are part truth, and part lies, because men, have compromised God’s holy word, and changed it, here and there. To enhance the meaning? I don’t think so, I think it truly is an agenda of the devil to distort Gods word, to change it, so the potency will not be there. There are so many warnings, that tell us, from God, do not change, do not add, do not delete Gods word. Revelation 22:18-19. And I have seen so many discrepancies, when comparing scripture to scripture from the different versions, with Gods holy word, the King James, that causes me great alarm! So I stick with the King James.
Life, you want to look with hope, in 2014 for the changes, in life, God can bring. He promises life abundantly. I claim, that on earth, as it is in heaven. I have great anticipation, more so, from other years. Maybe it is maturity in Christ, maybe it is just wanting again, to see God glorified, but I am pressing into this life, that I have grateful, and wanting to be obedient, yes, in fear of God, who holds my life in His hands.
Fear of God, brings it all together oh so sweet. Not in a burdensome way, but in way, that tells Him, as His daughter, I know He has established it by His way, and if I want life, I have to choose His way. I have to choose His truth.
Without wavering, without doubting, without, testing Him. No I know the consequences of sin, and it is death, it is not life. And I want peace, because there is no peace to the wicked.
So I have to see it all together, to please him. Because if I don’t, I could miss it. I don’t want to miss it any more. In fact, I want to be restored, totally healed, and renewed in this gift of life He has given me. But so much more, in this glory I want to give Him, I want to see miracles. Great miracles, that bring Him glory.
If I want my life to change, if I want these miracles, if I want to see God glorified, in my life, and yes even you….I have to position myself, and take hold of Gods promises, in obedience, and let go, and let God.
I am believing, in 2014, according to John 14:6, that Christ is the way, the truth, and life, and I am taking all of His word, to bless without sorrow…..Don’t you think you have to do the same thing? Position yourself, completely with God. Thats the answer! To have the way, to have the truth, to have the life!
Just my thoughts, for the new year. May God bless your new year of 2014 as well. Take to heart, this scripture, meditate on it, understand it, totally. It may be your scripture for 2014 as well.
Rededicating myself to Christ every day, is just a new beginning….
Blessings, and love in Christ, Elena Ramirez
Lord, I put 2014 in your hands, and I pray, I do my part according to your truth, so you will be glorified in my life. For the changes I long for. You are the way, the truth, and life. And I hold onto this promise of John 14:6. With all my being this year. Bless your word. The King James word. In all areas of my life for your glory. So I can say Look what the Lord has done for me. Thank you, Father, I bless you Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Jesus name. Amen.
