Have you been rude to someone? A person of God? Maybe it is someone you work with? A neighbor, and here is one, how about somebody here on Facebook or Twitter?
Were you….Snarly, sarcastic, accusatory, argumentative? Maybe you made fun of someone, and their beliefs? Maybe you are jealous? Maybe you gossiped? Maybe you snubbed someone? Maybe you had a chance to stand up for someone, that was the underdog, and you let the opportunity go by, and did not support that someone, in love?
Look we all make mistakes, in relationships. But one thing, I have learned, if you want to get Gods attention…go to that person, and apologize.
Maybe, they don’t even know you spoke against them, or maybe they don’t know you had such harsh feelings toward them. Or had bad intentions toward them. Humble yourself in the sight of God. See this pride thing, will always block blessings. And love will always work, it never fails. God is love.
So go to that person, and admit your fault before them. Try to be friends with someone, you have disliked. Apologize yourself for even being a part of the enemies plan. Because it does cause discord. It does cause division, it causes strife. And sadly it brings curses, and nobody wants that…..
Even if you may be right in some instances. Communication, always brings attention to things, and can resolve issues. And if someone comes to you, be gracious. As well. You see, we all have a responsibility to let love in. We all need to grow.
Being resentful, in the long run, will only hurt you. It is a poison, that poisons the soul. When love, could make amends in the sight of God. I know that I know this works. I have seen God bless me, when I have done this.
Go to that person, and make it right. God will honor your humbleness, and love to go to that person. As much as it may hurt you, you will see the pride go away, and a refreshing will come to you, a blessing from God. Perhaps when you need an answer from God, you will get it.
You see the goal, is always to please God, it is always to be humble before Him. It is always to see the deception of the devil, and make a wrong right, in the sight of God. Be a peacemaker, if anything in your own soul…..
And if you cannot do that, then leave them totally alone, and do not hurt them! I say this as a prayer, and in the name of Jesus! Amen.
BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT WHOSOEVER IS ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER WITHOUT A CAUSE SHALL BE IN DANGER OF THE JUDGMENT: AND WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY TO HIS BROTHER, RACA, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF THE COUNCIL: BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY THOU FOOL, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE. THEREFORE IF THOU BRING THY GIFT TO THE ALTAR, AND THERE REMEMBEREST THAT THY BROTHER HAVE OUGHT AGAINST THEE: LEAVE THERE THY GIFT BEFORE THE ALTAR, AND GO THY WAY, FIRST BE RECONCILED TO THY BROTHER, AND THEN COME AND OFFER THY GIFT. MATTHEW 5:22-24

I am not into judging people. I do love and want to love as Christ commanded us. With that said…
I do know right from wrong.
And I have discernment between good and evil. I will call it for what it is. I see the fruit. And we are called to test and try spirits.
And the devil better back off. That scripture is twisted and taken out of context. To put Christians off and to shut up. It is used in defense because basically people don’t want to hear the truth.
And yes there are some who are so religiously regulated who do judge.
But what about when you know truth and you see someone doing wrong? What about knowing the devil is a liar? What about trying to spare a friend hell? Or the consequences of making a wrong choice? What about pleasing God? Hello….
Well all I can say is I will call it for what it is. Our world better wake up. More then ever. I am not into Lala gospel. I have fear of God. And I will not abuse grace.
I don’t want to stand before God and have Him tell me…. Why didn’t you warn my child that was wrong? And what am I going to say?
That I did not want them to think I was judging?….
No, I want to win souls to Christ with truth. I don’t want to send them to the enemy. Their salvation is at stake!
Doesn’t anybody see the discrepancies in all of the judging thoughts? Cannot anyone see the ploy the deception that the enemy uses, twisting that scripture? We all need to know the difference!
JUDGE NOT, THAT YE BE NOT JUDGED. MATTHEW 7:1
There is righteous judgement. We need the mind of Christ. To judge righteously! Did you know you were called to do that too?
JUDGE NOT ACCORDING TO THE APPEARANCE, BUT JUDGE RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT. JOHN 7:24
So next time someone tells you to shut up for judging remind them, you are called to judge righteously. We need to speak truth to one another yes in love. Not hitting people on the head with the Bible. No I am praying for the utterance and the boldness to speak truth. Loud and clear.
And if you are going to speak truth, because you feel led…. You better be prayed up, and have that King James scripture to back it up. I don’t use any other scriptures because the others are corrupted, and their words are also changed, and taken out of context.
You see, there is nothing worse then trying to tell something, to someone, and you don’t have the scripture. To back it up. Yes, I just gave John 7:24, because some would only think there is only one scripture on judging.
I would rather be right with God than people. Yes He has forgiven me of much…And for that, because I know the difference, I want to speak truth!
This is why I write, this is why I pray God use me, this is why I pray you consider sending me to your church. I will give you truth, I will tell you according to Gods Holy word, my King James Bible, and I pray, that ears are opened, and hearts receive that truth, without condemnation.
There is no condemnation in Christ. And I suppose more so, this is why I am addressing this. Have you ever heard someone say, don’t judge me, when you have your own skeletons in your closet? Well that is the whole point. I want people to be saved and free, when I tell them the truth. I am not trying to judge them or hurt them. I am trying to protect them from the devil. So they don’t give the devil a legal right to harass them. When you totally give Christ your heart, and try to obey Him. Jesus cleans out our hearts, and takes those skeletons out of our closet. There is nothing there, to remind you of past sins, but a gratefulness, that He removed that stain of sin.
And for the record, I want to reiterate, about love. Its not my place to judge someone. If it was my place, I probably would fine them, and make them. But that’s not my place nor do I want that responsibility. People make mistakes. Including me. I make them all the time. I come short of the glory of God. So do you.
So no, I am not into making anyone do anything. Christ did not make me. But when I saw the truth I was convinced and humble enough to say God forgive me. I don’t want pride or excuses when it comes to judging.
But I know the difference, because of His grace. I want them to know grace like I know grace, and the sacrifice of Christ.
No I leave all that to God, and He will judge. He is not mocked. Galatians 6:7.
In Christ, and His love, just my thoughts…

Have you ever had company over, and gave your “clean” house a thorough cleaning?
I liken this to our souls as well. You see, when you know company is going to come over, and visit, say for some kind of event, or holiday, you take the extra time, to shine it up, dust, sanitize, and make your home presentable, so your guests, will find it in the best condition.
Recently for Labor Day, we had family over. We are not one for entertaining, but because it was family, we wanted to bless them, and so we did extra, and more when it came to our cleaning.
Now mind you, we keep a clean house, anyway, we are organized for the most part, and we keep up with daily chores, washing dishes, sanitizing etc.
But I have to admit, dusting, is not one of my priorities. In fact, I hate to dust. It still gets done, but it is not done constantly.
But it made me think, about our souls. I don’t think many of us, want to admit this, but I truly believe, even the best Christian, has to maintain your soul, and clean up some things.
Its called growing, it is called repenting, and it is necessary, for your own growth, to every once in a while do some reflecting, and pray, and ask God if there is something that has to be cleansed?
You see, just as we had guests over, Christ visits our hearts, and souls as well. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Christ to find something in my soul, that would “grieve the Holy Spirit.”
I just know myself that well, when I am feeling off, maybe cold, or indifferent, that I have to run to the throne, and seek my dear Lord. I need to repent, I need to be humble, I need to cry to Him, and say Lord, I don’t understand. But help me, help my faith.
I guess this is why I have written my two books, about faith, and curses, because I so want to please God, and I want to help others as well, but I know, how things can affect me, when I am not right with God, or I am off.
There are so many ministries, that do not address, this, in fact, they are into self, or pleasing yourself, and that is so wrong. We have to make pleasing God the priority.
So you have to do some reflecting, you do have to discipline yourself, you do have to ask God, and “try” to do that housecleaning. Yes, God will make the difference, and wash you by the blood of Jesus, but you have to check out your robes of righteousness. Is there a stain, from a thought, a sin, a place, where hopefully you did not let the devil in?
You see, these are our souls. We have to maintain them. The Bible tells us to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling. Oh the fear of God is such a good thing. It keeps us out of trouble.
Yes we can all use help, in cleaning, as if our own homes. I would love to have a maid, but since, I don’t I have to do it. In this photo, my husband and son stepped in, and helped a little. That was so nice, and I was so touched by their help, I took a photo of them. God bless them….
A good friend, may help you, counsel you, and even extend grace, when it comes to matters like this. To help you as well.
But it is our responsibility, to dust ourselves off, and maintain our relationship with Christ. Friend, don’t take your soul for granted, even if you have accepted Christ.
Yes, you were given a clean garment, a robe of white, when you made Christ your Lord, and savior. And He is so wonderful, He will give it to anyone, who calls on Him, and believes. But after that you better watch it, and know for you walk in this earth, and the enemies goal is to deceive you, and to cause you to stumble, and yes fall.
And if you have not friend, accepted Christ I implore you to seek Christ. Make it right with Him. This is not about religion, this is about knowing the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Make it right with Christ. This is your soul, and someday, when you die, you do not want to have known you had the chance even by reading this, and not making it right with Christ. Turn to Him, seek Him, repent, and make Him your Lord and savior. You will never regret it. I am so glad, He found me, but I made Him my Lord and savior.
I am a firm believer in repenting, daily, I suppose its like my daily dusting. But I do it because I so want to please father, and like I said, I just know when something is off, and when I do this, my joy, my sense of peace returns. God knows, when our spiritual houses are clean, and I want Him to see it clean, and acceptable for His presence.
Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts. Elena Ramirez
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken Thou me according to Thy word. I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me: teach me Thy statutes. Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heavings: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word. Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me Thy law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth; thy judgments have I laid before me. I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame. I will run the way of thy commandments when Thou shalt enlarge my heart. Psalm 119:25-32
I love the King James scriptures, and I try to tell you in love, how important it is to use a King James, but there is no way any other version, can speak this truth like this, the way God intended it to be, and the anointing of this scripture speaks volumes. In fact, this entire chapter, talks about the word, and His law, and His testimonies. I recommend reading all of Psalms 119 from a King James Bible…it is long, but it so ministers to my heart when I read it concerning Gods word. Dust off your bible, and read it. Why would anyone want less? And to deny yourself Gods food for thought, is starving yourself. Another thing perhaps, to write about another day…..
Just another Thought…..

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
