AS CHRISTIANS WE ARE CALLED TO FORGIVE BUT GOD SAYS VENGEANCE IS MINE~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0523.jpegAs Christians we are called to forgive, but God says vengeance is mine.

AND BE YE KIND ONE TO ANOTHER, TENDERHEARTED, FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS GOD FOR CHRIST’S SAKE HATH FORGIVEN YOU.  EPHESIANS 4:32  KJV

Some folks don’t understand that.  Or there would be more apologies in the world.  More remorse.  More accountability.  More sweet humbleness, and yes repentance to God first.

IMG_0166.jpgSee, God is not mocked, we do reap what we sow, in whatever way, that is.  Its a principle.  Like what goes up must come down.

I was thinking of that last night.  As I tried to fall asleep.  Someone was very, very rude to me, and I thought, here I go again…..

FOR THOU HAST BEEN A SHELTER FOR ME, AND A STRONG TOWER FROM THE ENEMY.  PSALMS 61:3  KJV.

But I knew, I had to release it in forgiveness, even to sleep well.  The Lord, spoke that to my heart.  He said;

“Just forgive. Its been tough, I know.  You are a warrior, you are in battle sometimes, you do need reinforcement, you don’t have it by many, but I am here.  Vengeance is mine.  Get some sleep.

I did.

When I woke up this morning, I was reminded, of the words He spoke;  You forgive, but vengeance is mine.”

DEARLY BELOVED, AVENGE NOT YOURSELVES, BUT RATHER GIVE PLACE UNTO WRATH:  FOR IT IS WRITTEN, VENGEANCE IS MINE: I WILL REPAY SAITH THE LORD.  ROMANS 12:19  KJV

It made me think of my lifetime, there have been battles.  There have been people in my life, that I trusted, and they let me down.  It would have been so nice, if they really were my friends, if they understood, my gifts are not theirs, and my battles are not theirs either.  But to be accepted, even by prayer, or in support of my writings, it would have meant so much to me.  So very much….But instead they turned on me, in one way or another.

And as I think of friends, as a warning to whoever, be careful of people.  Some of these folks only loved me, when I was popular in ministry.  And I had a high position as a Prayer Coordinator, at a local Christian television station.  But when the devil came in, and I was booted out, my popularity, went out the window.  See the proof would have been at least in the supporting of my ministry.  And I am not talking about money.  I am talking about moral support.  Prayer. But if you cannot even get your friends to share your posts, and writings about God to one another.  On Social media. It’s a lost cause.

But I always wondered, if we looked at God the same way.  In the sense, to be a light that shined for Christ.  To give God glory.  To actually make a difference, by sharing truth.  Most of my writings, come from the foundation of King James scriptures, so I know they were truth.  But I guess, my friends, did not see that vision, to give God glory.  By helping my ministry.  And that made me sad, because just a couple of friends supporting, and sharing my writings.  would have made “Just My Thoughts” more so to the glory of God.

They did not give that to me, nor to God…..

And that grieves me, now that the dust has settled.  Because I never really asked my friends to support my writings.  I just wanted their friendship.  Their loyalty.  Grace.  But if they saw the gift in me, they would have supported it.

After all now, and then they did say, “Gee that ministered to me.” But…Instead I got challenged, by the Judas touch.  My Christian walk was questioned, in the heat of the moment, and even brought up to me, by someone, who I really valued, in Christ.  It does say a lot about what people REALLY think, when they get mad.  They use it against you.

So yes, beware of friends….  And even here I say, I do forgive.  I pray, they don’t see the vengeance of God.  For their betrayal to me. But it is what it is.  His will, be done.

FAITHFUL ARE THE WOUNDS OF A FRIEND; BUT THE KISSES OF AN ENEMY ARE DECEITFUL.  PROVERBS 27:6  KJV.

Remember the kiss of Judas? How deceitful that was.  Because he could have made it right with Jesus.  He could have gone to the cross, but instead he took his own life.  And just as a metaphor, isn’t that what any of us do, if we don’t repent, and make things right with God, and others?  We take our lives into our own hands, without God.

IMG_0038.jpgI am not a pay back person.  I don’t like that, especially because I do understand, that vengeance is the Lords.

I have seen Him, take vengeance on those who hurt me, or was a false witness, or an accuser.  I have seen it.

It gives me no pleasure, to see those who have hurt me, reap the vengeance of the Lord.

REJOICE NOT WHEN THINE ENEMY FALLETH, AND LET NOT THINE HEART BE GLAD WHEN HE STUMBLETH.  PROVERBS 24:17  KJV

But I know, He does protect me in these matters.  As His servant.

But when you put forgiveness together with knowing that, vengeance is HIS, it can be an eye opener.  To fear God. People do not fear God, by their actions.  I do.   To know there are consequences to our actions.  If not now, definitely when we stand before God.  Thats why pride is so ugly.  It is so puffed up.  It blinds folks.  So they cannot see.

It actually is very sad to see.  But oh well, sometimes, well, you learn from it, and you grow.  Or you should, and it just makes you seek God more.  I do anyway.  I have learned from it.

KJV scripture says, whom God loves, He corrects.  Life has a way, I know, I have seen in my own life, that you do reap what you sow.  I never want to sow vengeance, revenge,  though on anybody.  Thats why I do try and forgive.  Because I know that I do have a harsh streak sometimes, but I bring it always to the obedience of the Lord.

THINE OWN WICKEDNESS SHALL CORRECT THEE, AND THY BACKSLIDINGS SHALL REPROVE THEE:  KNOW THEREFORE AND SEE THAT IT IS AN EVIL THING AND BITTER, THAT THOU HAST FORSAKEN THE LORD THY GOD, AND THAT MY FEAR IS NOT IN THEE, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS.  JEREMIAH 2:19  KJV.

There is a famous person lately, on the news, who was confronted by someone who called him a name.  And instead of walking away, he brought up race, he brought out obscenities, and actually threatened the person.  And I thought, because he is in the public eye, he should have walked away.  They said he felt challenged because his family was there.  But I thought, if you love your family, you do not put them in a threatening position, where they could get hurt as well. He looked like the bad guy, even though, the guy provoked him by calling him a name. IMG_0127.jpg

But this person, is not a Christian, this person, does not know what Christ taught us, about loving one another, or forgiving, or not being an accuser…

And you know because I am a warrior, I deal with this, I see it often but there are times, I should just walk away.  Sometimes, I should not say anything.  But because I am a truth seeker, and because I am bold, well, I do engage.  Sometimes.  I do pick and choose my battles,  But, I truly need Gods discernment in these matters.

Because there are enemies of the cross.  There are enemies of our nation.  And they are not kind.  People really take things to a different level now.  And it amazes me, how grace is not extended.  Or how people, do not even give someone the benefit of the doubt any more.  These conversations, and accusations, lately about race, are very concerning to me.  As I observe.

BY THIS I KNOW THAT THOU FAVOUREST ME, BECAUSE MINE ENEMY DOTH NOT TRIUMPH OVER ME.  PSALMS 41:11 KJV.

But to be honest, I don’t know especially, now that I am getting older, if I should pursue some things.  I guess, it is a time of reflection in my life, for many reasons, and so I need to pray.  There are things, and people, who have done things to me, but I need to completely let go of in my heart.  I am closer in that…..Its a process.

I do forgive, but I know, vengeance belongs to God.

Keeps me in check.  How about you?

HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD, YE THAT TREMBLE AT HIS WORD: YOUR BRETHREN THAT HATED YOU, THAT CAST YOU OUT FOR MY NAME SAKE, SAID, LET THE LORD BE GLORIFIED:  BUT HE SHALL SPEAK TO YOUR JOY, AND THEY SHALL BE ASHAMED.  ISAIAH 66:5  KJV

 

Blessings,

RESPECT THE SPIRITUAL LINES GOD HAS PLACED TO PLEASE THE WILL OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3227.jpegHave you ever wanted something so much, and you look for ways to get it?  I have a pretty bold personality, but there are times, that has gotten me in trouble, as I have disrespected lines, crossed them, and did not let God be God in that situation.

FOR PRECEPT MUST BE UPON PRECEPT, PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT, LINE UPON LINE, LINE UPON LINE, HERE A LITTLE AND THERE A LITTLE  ISAIAH 28:10  KJV

It is a lesson of life. I am more careful now, knowing, what I know about God.  About His commandments, about people, about spiritual principles….

But knowing truth, knowing we reap what we sow, when we disobey is also a lesson of life.

This is such a broad subject to cover.  But, obedience, makes a difference.  To really be aware of lines, one crosses.  So, I want to touch base on when we sin.  When we cross spiritual lines, that denies the will of God in a matter, we will reap what we sow.  Even in the physical.

Because to be honest, sometimes you cannot cross back.  You have to know, that sometimes there are consequences, where you cannot return to a matter.  But then again, with God there is always a way.  And I want to be reminded of that myself, as I write this.

Lets talk about health.  As an example.  Say you smoke.  You could reap bad effects from that if you don’t stop it, repent, and remember that you are the temple of the living God.

DSC_0022.jpgThe spiritual principle is in place.  We are called to be holy, as God is holy.  We are to live a clean life.  Folks, that abuse their bodies, with drugs, alcohol, smoking sin, in adulterous ways, will reap that.  By diseases, unwanted pregnancy. etc. But abortion is not the solution for that.  Anyway….Keep your temple clean.  So you don’t cross a spiritual line, that will affect the physical.

But in general, we have to see, what our disobedience to God  is, when we cross these spiritual lines.  We reap it.

When anyone seeks another entity besides God, that’s dangerous.  So many people think you can play with these spiritual matters.  They cross lines, right into the devils territory.

Have you ever seen the true fruit of an atheist, for example?  They are mean, hateful, vindictive people.  But they have no sweet fruit, because they denied God.  They crossed spiritual lines, perhaps, by even not seeing, they now serve the devil.

No one can be the best they can be if they choose to disregard God, or His ways.  His laws.  By crossing spiritual lines, that do not please God.

Thats the way He made it…DSC_0014

When someone, who came to the throne of God, and walks away, they have to see, they have crossed a spiritual line, of no return, unless they return.  Seeing they are now a backslider.  And repents.

To conclude this, and to wrap this thought up, nicely.  I want you to be mindful of the spiritual lines, you cross, if you disobey God in any regard.  In love, in truth, in obedience, in respect, in honesty.  These lines, have been established, for your own good. Not to be mean, or to hold you in, but mostly to protect you.IMG_1534.jpg

I believe I am thinking this, and writing this, because it has made me realize, that there are some spiritual lines, one should not cross with God, or even other people.  Friends, strangers, etc.  Because if you do, you could do some damage.  But, if one opens their eyes, and really takes a good look, takes time to pray, to repent, to humble themselves, they can learn.  I think I have learned some things…

Maybe you can cross back.  By seeing the cross.

I have a sense even now for me, not to cross a spiritual line.

I am praying about a situation right now, where I want to cross a line.  Where I could be a peacemaker.  But, I know I should not, because I did not cross the lines of respect or honor, to begin with so for me to cross over, would not benefit the situation.  In fact, it would be at a loss for me.  I have to respect the boundary.  If there is to be peace, about it, I would not be the one to make the attempt to cross back.

THE LINES ARE FALLEN UNTO ME IN PLEASANT PLACES; YEA, I HAVE A GOODLY HERITAGE.  PSALMS 16:6  KJV

So, I know I cannot cross that line.  And it made me think about all the other lines, I did cross lines, in my life.  And the lessons I learned.  By being with people, who did not honor me.  Or who used me, or manipulated, my friendship, or even just my good nature.  I have learned the hard way.  So I test and try the spiritual lines, God has placed.  Its for my own good.  So I do have HIS peace about it.  I won’t wrestle with disobeying God.  Because the end result is fruit, and blessings…If I obey, and in this situation.

If I can spare someone to see, to be careful to not cross spiritual lines, that God has placed.  Then maybe.  Just maybe I will please God.  And thats everything to me now.  It means so much to me.  Maybe thats why I am bold, maybe thats why I don’t hold back truth or hide it.  Because of who He is.  He has done so much for me, and I can never repay Him. But I can be careful not to cross spiritual lines…. that offend Him.  Or even hurt what He did on that cross for all of us.

I think I have learned the hard way, in life, about reaping and sowing, and missing out on this or that, because I was not obedient to God.  I sinned.  I took away from myself.  And I am not trying to be hard on myself, because I know Gods grace.  But we do reap what we sow.

I so, take to heart, His truths, His commandments, His ways.  As the way, the truth, and the life.  I pray, never to cross lines, that offend my Lord.

Hope this blesses you,QJF3m39k.jpg-large

WHY DOES THE DEVIL ATTACK? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0043.jpegWhy does the devil attack?  Well, it could be for a few reasons.  And I may have touched base on this, in other posts of mine.  But, I sense the anointing from God to write about this, right now, so I will obey God.

Lets start from the beginning, and touch on the subject of sin.  See, Adam and Eve, sinned, and since then the curse is on all generations.  We all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  We cannot get away from that.  You may not think you sin, but the curse of sin, is on all of us, unless we repent, and accept Christ as Lord, and savior, and turn away from anything, that could affect our blessings, our lives, or whether or not the enemy will attack.

So, if you have not done that, you may be attacked by the enemy.

This is your part, and responsibility.

See, we are called to submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee.  That submitting requires being obedient to God, and as much as you can to His laws, and commandments.

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  James 4:7 King James.

Now a lot of Christians don’t believe that.  But I don’t believe God flip flopped from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  God is a legal God. Throughout the bible, there are scriptures that speak of the law.  Again, I will reiterate we are only free from the law of sin, and death found in Romans 8:2 King James.  Not Gods commandments.

This book brings attention to the behaviors, one may have that can contribute to a curse. But by Christ it can change into a blessing. A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do…. “HOW TO HAVE FAITH” This book is a self-help book to bring insight to your faith, and to know what pleases God. Both are on SMASHWORDS….. https://www.smashwords.com/interview/ElenaRamirezChristianauthor If interested in ordering the Paper Back go to this link. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

So, if you are purposely breaking Gods laws, His commandments, the enemy will come in  to attack.  You should never give the enemy a “legal” right to attack you.

Do you remember the story of Job?  Job was a blessed man, but because he was tested by God, he allowed the “hedge” to be brought down so he could attack him.  I believe God tested Job, to see how he would react when attacked.

The devil had to actually ask God if he could attack.

JOB 1:10-12   KJV

HAST NOT THOU MADE AN HEDGE ABOUT HIM, AND ABOUT HIS HOUSE, AND ABOUT ALL THAT HE HATH ON EVERY SIDE?  THOU HAST BLESSED THE WORK OF HIS HANDS, AND HIS SUBSTANCE IS INCREASED IN THE LAND.  BUT PUT FORTH THINE HAND NOW, AND TOUCH ALL THAT HE HATH, AND HE WILL CURSE THEE TO THY FACE.  AND THE LORD SAID UNTO SATAN, BEHOLD, ALL THAT HE HATH IS IN THY POWER; ONLY UPON HIMSELF PUT NOT FORTH THY HAND.  SO SATAN WENT FORTH FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD….. 

Sin, will do that it will give the enemy permission to attack you.

But that hedge, that was brought down, can also be from disobedience, and it can let the enemy in to again attack you.

We individually, have  responsibility, to keep our spiritual houses, our souls, clean.  This can be by what we allow into our souls.  From the ear gate, eye gate, and mouth gate as well.  What we see, what we read, or watch, entertain, or what we speak….

It comes from our love walk as well.

Right now our country is in spiritual warfare.  Many don’t see the problem as spiritual.  But there is a battle between good and evil for our nation.  See our nation, was built on the principles of God.  The devil, is trying to destroy the foundation of that.  But there are sins, that have opened the door for the devil to attack.  So we do need to get closer to God and repent.  We do need to obey God.  Some sins, I see, is abortion, this is a terrible sin.  But there are others, and when anybody does not allow God into the situation, well there the enemy can come in.

I think there has a gradual denial of God, in our nation, and I believe we are seeing the “fruit” of that.

So, I believe in stating this, that we need to get to the root of this.  Its not a mental problem, its not a gun problem, its a spiritual problem.  Where love, has been denied.  God is love, and He has been denied in our nation by many.  So therein is part of the problem.

IF MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY, AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN, AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.  II CHRONICLES &;14  KING JAMES.

The only thing that can break the curses, of sin, is Christ.  He died on the cross for our sins, and if we accept Him, if we repent, if we pray, if we read good King James word, we can grow.

We all have a responsibility in this.  I don’t know why things are always the way they are, so I will state that as my disclaimer.  Gods ways are not our ways.

FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 55:8.  KJV

So, I cannot second guess, God in some matters.  But I do know making things right with God, through Christ,  and people, and staying away from things, that hurt our spiritual walk with God, will keep the devil away, in matters.   Its always a choice folks.  God is a gentleman.  He does not make us do anything, we have to just come to a place and realize He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Read John 14:6 King James.

If we deny Him, He will deny us.  There is no other way about that.  So we cannot blame Him, when we have our own part in this.  Educating yourself, by reading good King James word, gives you insight.

I try to talk to so many, who attack faith, who attack religion.  When they don’t understand its not religion, its relationship with Christ.  And He can make the difference.

Religion is:  Rules, regulations, traditions, rituals made by men and groups.  Religion will let you down, because it is made by people.  But God will never let you down.  Through relationship.  And God will protect you from the devil.  He will.  I know.  Trust Him, and obey.  Get to know God, thats your responsibility.

Get close to God folks.  It takes time to grow, to understand who God is.  It really does, but we have to get our hearts right before Him.  By accepting Christ as Lord, and savior.  Seeing what He did on that cross for you.  Humbles us all.  Getting rid of pride, and wanting to be offended, its not from God.  There are so many things that can hinder us, and I know, I am scratching the surface of this.  But we really need to be close to our Lord.  It makes the difference.  I know.  Anyway….Hope this helps someone today.

Always remember to plead the blood of Jesus, over yourself, your family, your finances, your health, home pets, anything of value, from God. etc.

See, you have to remember, that the blood was applied, when the spirit came to attack, the Egyptians, before Passover.  There is power in the blood.  There was then, with the sacrifice.  But the sacrifice of Christ, makes it all that more evident, and powerful.

Plead the blood of Jesus, as your HEDGE of protection…

and yes always be in a place of repentance.

 

Blessings, in Christ,

HAVING HATE DOES NOT MAKE YOU STRONG IT MAKES YOU WEAK ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0012.jpegToday after learning of the news from El Paso, Texas, I grieve with the rest of my country.  From my understanding, this was a crime of hate.  Racial hate.  The hate I am seeing now in our nation, is making us weaker.  Not stronger.  We are the greatest nation in the earth.  Our foundation is built on God.  In God we trust.  But there are those, who are choosing to hate, and break that foundation.

Don’t you see it?  I do.

They do that, by disobeying Gods laws, and yes the laws of the land.  I see that even in what’s allowed with immigration.

I sense a lot of hate from folks lately.  I sense and see a lot of unapologetic folks.  I see many people, doing things behind computers, that they would never say or do in someones face.  But any more, that does seem to change.IMG_4684.jpeg   People are getting bolder in their hate.

I don’t see respect, which used to hinder some folks from hate.  That used to stop some folks, because at least by being polite, it would stop someone, so they did not dump on someone.  With hate.

Anymore, folks seem to go for just being mean, and inconsiderate.  But I was thinking about it from a spiritual sense.  As to how being hateful, makes you weak, instead of strong.

For….It’s true, for any of us.  If we are motivated by hate, that makes us weak.  Because to be blunt.  It’s not from God.  God is love.

BELOVED LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  FOR LOVE IS OF GOD; AND EVERY ONE THAT LOVETH IS BORN OF GOD, AND KNOWETH GOD.  HE THAT LOVETH NOT KNOWETH NOT GOD; FOR GOD IS LOVE.  I JOHN 4:7-8  KJV. 

Lately, I don’t see love.  I see hate.  I see this hate from politicians, journalists, and famous people.  I have even seen it from some of my Christian friends.  People who should know better.  What I see is the hate, though, from this, being utilized by all people and all races.  They think it makes them stronger.  But it makes them and our nation weak.  Blaming.  Hating.  Not being accountable.  Not being remorseful, for their own participation in a matter.  Prideful, mean and hateful.

IMG_0388For I have seen these kind of petty behaviors from people, all my life.  Thats why I turned into a warrior.  To defend myself.  And if anybody knows me, they know I am a warrior.  Maybe thats why I can write about it now.

As my disclaimer, I know, I am not a perfect person.  If anybody knows their own flaws; I do.  So if someone wants to point them out, well, I leave that to God.  Not people.  Any more.  People have not always been kind to me.  I have had enough criticism, and judging, in my lifetime, from family, and yes dear friends, to teach me many things.  But one thing is not to hate.

IMG_0605.jpgAnd thats the fruit of it right now, I can honestly say.  I don’t hate.  I have no hate toward anyone. No envy, no jealousy.  When someone is blessed, I am happy for them.  I don’t try and make anybody feel miserable, because I am miserable.  Or put some kind of strange spiritual guilt trip on them.  Thats why I said in my last post, that I speak life, and break the curses.  Gods truth.

But walking in love, makes me stronger, not weaker.  It gives me a sense of who God is.  It clears my conscience.  To not hate anybody.  Even though there are some folks, I don’t want to be near.  And my trust level is gone.

I was taught early, to love, God, and country, and yes, I love our President, and pray for him.  I Timothy 2:1-3.  KJV.  I did not vote for the man.  But he is doing a great job for all people, and yes minorities.  By getting jobs.  For them.  Thats not a racist.  But people, think what they want to think what they want to think toward him anyway, and they hate.

IF A MAN SAY, I LOVE GOD, AND HATETH HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR:  FOR HE THT LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER WHOM HE HATH SEEN, HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD WHOM HE HATH NOT SEEN?  AND THIS COMMANDMENT HAVE WE FROM HIM, THAT HE WHO LOVETH GOD LOVE HIS BROTHER ALSO.  I JOHN 4:20-21 KJV.

If you love God, though, you work at love.  See it is more work, to love.  It is something that when you love, you forgive, and you try to work at making it work, whatever the relationship is.

Its easy, to walk away from people, and I have.  And I should rephrase that, because sometimes it was not easy, but I had to do that, for my own sense of well being.  But to try and work at something thats valuable, requires a commitment, and some folks would rather hate, than love.  They don’t see how fragile some folks are, and what hate can do.  So I don’t hate anybody.  I do try to love.

In fact, even here I say; God bless those people Lord.  God bless them.  I release this into the atmosphere, the spiritual realm and just ask that you take care of them, and bless them. I say it with Love Father, so you can see I am trying as well.  As I go on….

See, I am not motivated by hating anyone.  I don’t like that poison in my heart, in my soul, or in my spirit. I want to be near God.  And I want Him to want to be near me. At all times.  He is love.  I want to be like Him.

I am motivated by love.  By the love Christ extended to all of us, by giving His life.  And the love He gave, in healing people, their lives, and it began by doing so spiritually.  By what He did on that cross.  The stripes He took, in all the beatings for us to be healed.  How His sacrifice, is the greatest example of love.

I am motivated by love, from God, the Father, who sacrificed, His son, so that we could all be free.  I am motivated by His law.  That tells us, He loves us, and if we keep His laws, or at least try to obey them, we acknowledge He is a legal God.  There are so many scriptures about His law.  Thats why I don’t take one scripture, as they say, and cherry pick.  I do not try to change any part of the whole Bible.  Great peace have they which love His law, and nothing shall offend them.  Psalms 119:165.  (paraphrasing)  This again, and I will always say this, use a King James for holiness.

I HATE VAIN THOUGHTS:  BUT THY LAW DO I LOVE.  PSALMS 119:113 KJV. 

Yes I hate evil.  I hate, anything that tries to puff itself, against the knowledge of God.  How if we allow it to enter it brings the characteristics of the enemy, jealousy, no respect, pride, lies, etc.  And while I mention it, these things are seeds.  So, if you have jealousy, pride, no respect, envy, and you lie to someone, that can lead to hate….  I do try and avoid hate.

YE THAT LOVE THE LORD, HATE EVIL:  HE PRESERVETH THE SOULS OF HIS SAINTS; HE DELIVERETH THEM OUT OF THE HAND OF THE WICKED.  PSALMS 97:10.  KJV.

You have to see it yourself though.

What I find strange lately, though, is in this hate, some are blaming members of their own race.  To hate, to call out racism.

Either way, hate is hate.  And, I have seen some of these signs from people I love.  And do you know how much that grieves me?   Either way.  I hate the chains it puts on people.  How it stops prayer, in any of our lives.  Or answers.  Blessings….Because it is sin.  I hate how it poisons souls, and blinds us.  I hate how I was so gullible to those that hated.  But no longer…..

So as I try to get to the root of it today.  I see so much hate from people lately.  In politics, in the things journalists say, in just those who want to change our country.  I see it from those who choose to hate, not love.  This is their choice, and it is wrong.

It concerns me.  Because it does seem to be gaining momentum.  But all these things do not make them stronger, but makes them weaker.  When folks, use race, that is a tool that leads to sedition, to me.  Which could lead to anarchy.  And thats not good, because that will make us weak as a nation.  This example I write about in the card below, happened sometime ago.  I did not walk in love.  I did repent.  But I am tired of folks being so mean and hateful, and using racism.  Version 2

Anyway, I truly believe, individually we have a responsibility to see what we are basing our emotions of hate, and love from.  If its love, it comes from God.  If its hate, it comes from the enemy.  It is always a choice friends, to be strong in God, through love.  Or to hate, and be weak, through the devil.

It is always a choice.  I hope this makes some folks think….I think sometimes God reminds us.  I am reminded today.  Folks, you know what to do.  Give that hate to God, and let Him give you love.  Repentance, clears the slate.  We should remember, especially in America, our colors, are red, white, and blue.  Let us promote unity, not division.  Love, not hate.

LET GOD ARISE, LET HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED:  LET THEM ALSO THAT HATE HIM FLEE BEFORE HIM.  Psalms 68:1.

I do have to end on this note though.  This is a spiritual war we are seeing.  Between good and evil.  And the enemy of God is doing everything he can, to make us stop loving, and to hate.  But you better know this. That God is not mocked.  Galatians 6:7  King James.  God is love.  What are folks doing?  Do you have to ask yourself that as well?  It is good to soul search.

There will be a price to pay for all this hate.  If not now, when we stand before God.  When the books are opened, and all is revealed, we will be judged.  And I believe we will be judged for the love, or hate we shared.

HEREIN IS OUR LOVE MADE PERFECT, THAT WE MAY HAVE BOLDNESS, IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT:  BECAUSE AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD.  I JOHN 4:17  KJV.

Wow, that verse ministers to me.  As all of Gods word does.

Folks, need to get a sense of this, because if we can do anything to stop hate, we should.  In our nation, and individually, personally.  Do Not add to it, or get into a place, of no return.  Hate will do that.  I know it personally.  But this is another story……

SPEAK LIFE BREAK THE CURSE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

If someone has spoken something very negative, very cruel, something that made you feel inadequate as a person, speak life.  Speak life, over someone else.  See, we do have power, of life and death in our tongue.  Be careful what you speak.  You could wound someone.  Including yourself. Version 4

DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE: AND THEY THAT LOVE IT SHALL EAT THE FRUIT THEREOF.  PROVERBS 18:21 KJV.

Throughout my life, I have had people speak things over me that sometimes, wounded me, and actually messed with my spirit.

Sad, thing is, you love these people.  But I just felt the Lord, remind me even today, and I won’t give the specific example.  But I spoke the opposite to someone.  I spoke, that this person, has the ability.  This person, can do all things through Christ.  This person, is smart not dumb.  This person, has my confidence in them.

I spoke this, because I do love this person as well.

So, I want this person, to know, the ability is there.  As I spoke that, I felt the Lord tell me He loved me.  That I could break the curses.  I was so reminded, that was something I longed for years ago.  That by speaking it over that person, I was breaking curses.

Not too many people, have spoke confidence over me, and you know now that I am older, I wish I had more of a stronger confidence in myself.  I see things now in me, that tell me I could have done greater things.

I think I could have been a lawyer.  And a good one.  I love Gods law.  I love how it changes me.  I love even the law of the land.  It is good, to be knowledgeable about such things.  I love knowing truth.  It gives me a sense of confidence, when I share what God says.  But to be a lawyer, who knows Gods law.  Wow, that would have been powerful.

IMG_0069.jpegBut I am older, now, and I don’t really see me being a lawyer at this point of my life. Who knows?  I will be careful with my words, because well, again I am reminded of the power of them.

But what I can do, even now, is learn from my mistakes.  Today, I was chatting with a young girl.

She told me, I don’t believe in God.

She reminded me of myself, years ago, when I denied God, and it makes me very sad to write that.  But, I told her, a little about my history.  I told her, that I had did that too, when I was young, and those were the darkest days of my life.  I told her, that Christ found me, cleaned my wounds, and gave me a better life.  I told her, don’t make the same mistakes I did, learn from me, and get right with God.  I told her, I had to repent to God, and begin praying, and reading good holy King James word.

fullsizeoutput_1db1I don’t know if she will listen to me, or not.  I don’t know if it planted a seed.  But I am not ashamed of who I am in Christ.  For, I am bold enough to tell people.  I have nothing to lose any more.  I already lost most of my friends, who were supposedly to be my sisters in Christ, so I figure, I may as well be honest, with all the people I meet.

But I know that speaking life, to one another, makes a difference.

I shake off, the hurtful things people have told me, even as I write it here.  As long as God gives me, life, I will speak truth, His truth.  Whether anyone agrees or not.  Whether they speak life to me or not.  Whether they are jealous or not.  Whether, they respect me or not.  I don’t care.  I am past that.  All that matters to me now, is what God says, and my family.  They love me.

The thing is, and I guess it is my secret.  I have the armor of God on now.  It is my heritage to condemn words that are not edifying.  God has given me that ability, and power.  Because I am a servant of Christ.  So, now I know my righteousness is in Him.

NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME.  

ISAIAH 54:17  KJV.

I wish I had always used this scripture, but I did not.  But it is a part of my armor of God now.  Return to sender is what I say…..  It breaks the curses.

But I will speak it as God is my witness.   It does free a soul, when you speak Gods promises over yourself.  And others.  Again….It breaks the curses.  I will shine my light.

LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BEFORE MEN, THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS, AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 5:16  King James.  

Anyway, speak life.  Speak truth, and break the curses that are not from God.  Tell someone, about Christ, tell someone, they can make a difference.  Tell them.

Blessings, and love,

In Christ,

CLAIMING GODS PROMISES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0372.jpegWhen I tell you to claim Gods promises, I don’t want this to be a flippant thought, that so many do, as they “Name it and Claim it.”  Without considering who they are approaching, to receive.  Yes, Jesus taught us, ask in His name, you will receive.

But learn who God is first.  Learn about what pleases Him.  Start from the beginning, even when it comes to understanding sin.  How He gave Adam and Eve life, but they sinned, and so the original plan He had for mankind was changed because of that.  He had to change the plan.  Look at it carefully.

But, I know He wanted us first to consider the thought, of life, and life abundantly.  In HIM.  Yes we can have life on earth, abundantly, as well.  But there is another life, and that is the life you must also look to get, thats life, after earth. More specifically, after you die.

This is where your soul, will go, when you die.  Will it be with God, or will it be sent to hell?  You have to see that.  Your choices, make that difference, and this is a promise from God.  That you better not play with, while you are on earth. IMG_2032

See, what many fail to tell us, is that in order to have any kind of abundant life, you must go through some things to understand, how precious life is, to begin with.  You must learn to honor life, and honor what God has given us.  Or it means nothing.

You cannot go through life, without respecting, Gods creation, including our own, in the womb.  You have to see, in order to even be in a position to receive Gods promises, you do have to seek the great Promise Keeper Himself, that is God, through, Jesus Christ.

You will need the Holy Spirit for that….

Claiming Gods promises.  There are so many of them.  There are times, I need a word, and I look in my King James Bible, and it is as if God has directed me to a certain verse, an anointed, and holy scripture, and the word comes alive to me.

I really don’t know how people, can survive, by rejecting God.  Or His promises.

I look at my life, and I look at how lost I was, as a kid, a young woman, but falling through the cracks of my own life, made me seek God.

I was desperate.  I won’t deny that.  I was lost, broken, abused, and nobody could care less.  And those that did care, well like my family, did not really know the difference sadly, to help guide me.

I never blame anybody for the mistakes I made, or the choices I made.  I don’t even blame God.  I know as soon as I began to seek His promises, and seek Him, I began to see a difference in my own life.

I needed patience though.IMG_3633.jpg

FOR YE HAVE NEED OF PATIENCE, THAT, AFTER YE HAVE DONE THE WILL OF GOD, YE MIGHT RECEIVE THE PROMISE.  HEBREWS 10:36  KJV. 

Sometimes, it takes a whole life time, to see that, but the point, I hope to make here, is please seek God, and His promises.  You will never, ever regret it.

HONOR THY FATHER AND MOTHER: (WHICH IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT WITH PROMISE;) EPHESIANS 6:2  KJV.  

Why do I mention this here, because there were times, I did not honor my mom.  And I know, that was part of my problem.  I don’t blame her, but sometimes, its hard, when you have parents, well who may not agree with you.  But still I learned, to try and love her, and do right by her.  But this is a promise.  Nonetheless….

So I tell you.  Embrace His word, embrace His promises.  Never give up on Him, or the things He promises.  Believe Him, when He says things.  He is not mocked.  And there is a price to pay for mocking Him.  In this perverted disobedience. Read Galatians 6:7.  King James.

Yesterday, I saw a comment from someone on social media, who said, they were giving up on God.  They were at the end of their rope.  They said God did not care, and God was not answering their prayers.

I tried to offer some insight, as to what I know about God answering prayers, and as blunt as I am, I just told him, to hold on, to trust God.  I told Him, God tests us, and tries us.  We are even to test and try others.  But I tried to emphasize so he could probably gain some insight, is to check and see if sin was there.

This is something, we all need to know about God, and that is if sin is there, He will not answer us.  He keeps His own word.  Psalms 66:18 proves this.

IF I REGARD INIQUITY IN MY HEART, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR ME.IMG_4114.jpg  

So repentance, always has to be front and center, with us, and we must have humble trusting hearts, that must be in a position to believe.  If we want answers to prayers.  If we want to grow, if we want to please God.

THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME MEN COUNT SLACKNESS; BUT IS LONGSUFFERING TO USWARD, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.  II PETER 3:9  KJV.  

Repentance has worked for me.  In fact, I like to do it daily.  Its like taking a shower.  It has worked for me.  I guess, that’s why when He does not answer prayers for me immediately, I have learned, I have to ask; what am I doing?  Sometimes, I have to do some soul searching, and ask God to guide me, so I don’t sin, against Him.  By repenting. See those promises, He makes are very clear, and people, I have noticed, sometimes, look for loop holes to sin.  Don’t do that you will regret it. Your salvation is not a license to sin. Don’t take what Christ did on the cross for you, for granted.

THAT YE BE NOT SLOTHFUL, BUT FOLLOWERS OF THEM WHO THROUGH FAITH AND PATIENCE INHERIT THE PROMISES.  HEBREWS 6:12  KJV.

One in particular, with many, is they reject law.  And I just know, that I know.  God is a legal God.  There are so many promises in this area, concerning the law.  His law.  But I attribute many Christians not knowing law, or what God says about it, because they may be using watered down bibles. Remember the only law we are free from is the law of sin and death, found in Romans 8:2.  Not Gods commandments.

Always use a King James for the anointing, the holiness, but to hear Gods true promises.  Because if you don’t you are using something corrupted, by someone, and its not always the same meaning.

This verse, is a promise from but it talks about those who should have known better, but they disregarded it.  One could miss it, but it’s there.  Its a promise.

THEY KEPT NOT THE COVENANT OF GOD, AND REFUSED TO WALK IN HIS LAW.  Psalm 78:10  KJV.  

How this must grieve God.  Sometimes, I wonder how He has patience with us, but He does, if we truly seek Him, and actually try to obey.  It takes time.  But I have learned so much from God, and His promises.

IMG_3291.jpgI know that someday, I will stand before Him, we all will.  I never want to hear, I never knew you.  And thats a promise, He makes, in His word for those who rejected, trying to know Him, or His promises.

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.  Matthew 7:23.  KJV. 

See, that verse mentions sin again, or iniquity.  He is a holy God.  And we cannot even think to approach Him, or claim His promises, even in knowing Him, if we don’t try to get to His promises.

It takes time, and I could go on and on, about His promises.  But He does keep them.  I look for that in people too, but if sin is there between you and them, don’t expect holiness.  Or truth, or honesty.

AND SO, AFTER HE HAD PATIENTLY ENDURED, HE OBTAINED THE PROMISE.  HEBREWS 6:15 KJV.

I always try to extend grace, because I know I am a sinner.  But one thing I have learned, even other Christians, don’t understand this about His promises, even in loyalty.

Be loyal to God in your search for His promises.  Prove to God, you want to be trustworthy as well.  Seek Him, claim His promises.  But seek His face, not His hand.  Yes there are promises for prosperity, but if thats your only goal, in seeking Him, well you may not find those answers, because your heart is not right.

Again, you, and only you, can get your heart in a position, to receive Gods promises.  Its up to you, if you want to bear fruit in Christ.  It is up to you, to finally get fed up, with the promises of the world, that leave you with nothing. But with God, you can bear fruit, you can see the differences.

There are so many promises.  From God, all you have to do is search, and pray, repent.  Make sure your relationship with Christ is in tact.  It is not religion, folks.  Its relationship.  Religion, is rules, regulations, traditions, rituals, made by men and groups.  And lets just be honest, people make mistakes.  But God does not.  He keeps His promises.  People do not.oVVGLhJKTo6LVp1ubRxVEg

AND IF YE BE CHRIST’S THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM’S SEED, AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.  GALATIANS 3:29  KJV.

Hope this blesses you today.

RACE BAITING IN AMERICA IS DUMB TO ME ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1455.jpegI apologize, for being so blunt.  But we live in the greatest nation in the world.

What are some folks trying to do?  Take us back?  Haven’t we learned the lessons in this?Do we not read history books?

These are terrible tactics, when folks race bait.  They stir up old hurts, old wounds, and they can incite violence.  People are like sponges.  They take the bait, and they use it.  It is wrong, and to me it stems from ignorance, and hate.  They are planting seeds of hate.  These are subliminal messages that are hurting us. We better all be aware of it!IMG_0046

Point and example.  And I won’t say names.  But I see, politicians, journalists, famous people, stating our President is a White Supremacist.  They are stirring up hate, they are dividing us.  And what’s so ironic.  Is they will reap what they sow.  To me, and thats why I say it’s dumb.  If he was a racist, why are jobs opening up for Hispanics, and Blacks, and all minorities?

Doesn’t sound like a racist to me. IMG_3608.jpeg

Some of these folks are white.  Who are calling him this.  They are white, he is white.  Why would anyone do that?

But all races are doing it I have noticed.  Either way, they are playing the race card.  But that card is null and void.

But think about this, when they do that, they are making people look at their own race.  And it is dumb, to bring that kind of negative energy that spirit of hate to their own race.  Really?  Do you want someone to hate your race, or incite violence to anyone in that group because you keep calling your President a White Supremacist?  Some folks are innocent, do not jeopardize anyone with this bad behavior!

Thats wrong!  Everyone is attacking his words.  What bothers me, is they added to his words.  He did not say, or identify anyone by their race, nor did he speak hey you person of color, leave America.  He said, “If you don’t like America leave.”  And isn’t he required to have freedom of speech too?

Folks are upset that at his last rally, some folks said something….

(No I am not being sarcastic if you read something else in that.)

But they have freedom of speech, as WE THE PEOPLE.

I actually agree with him.  If someone does not love this great nation, where we have freedom.  Please leave.  Stop biting the hand that feeds you.  Stop inciting this violence, anger, hate.  We don’t need it.  We are better than that.   They are just mad at him, because basically, he is applying the laws to our country.  In immigration.  But either way, this is all motivated from hate.  Lets be honest with each other.

Oh I am seeing it from everybody.  Everybody is getting on the band wagon.  They took the bait.  They drank the Kook-aid.  And now they are getting everyone in America, ticked off about race.

Look I am brown.  I am Hispanic.  Born and raised, with indigenous roots.  I am an American citizen. I love my God, and country.  I was taught to honor that office.  Of the President of the United States.  So I do, I pray for him.  I Timothy 2:1-3  King James.  Look it up, from a King James.

I was taught early, that Americans were united.  I was taught to love, all races in this country, because we are a melting pot.  I was taught, that men and women, of all races, have fought for one good, for our freedoms.  For that flag to be raised up high.  I was glad to learn about our forefathers, and how they as settlers came to find a place of freedom.  For all people. IMG_0002.jpg

So when I see folks, fussing, not wanting to even give their support, or honor to our flag.  By pledging allegiance to it. Or standing for our flag, at a sport event.  I think they don’t know how great our country is.  So they dishonor our flag, and they toss it, and throw it, and step on it with no respect.  Thats wrong.  People have died for our freedoms.IMG_1246.jpg

They take their freedoms for granted.  When they speak against our President, and yes they have freedom of speech, but they forget in other countries, this kind of disloyalty could lead to sedition, or even treason.  They could be banished, or worse.  God forbid.  I don’t even want to think about it.  But seriously, some folks, should do some research, and know our laws.

But, I want nothing to do with those kind of people.  Someone said this today, but I agree.  This person said:  I did not leave my party, that party left me.  

But do you see where this is all going?  The melting pot, is boiling. God forbid, it gets that bad, but it is getting bad, and I see it, and I think we all see it.

Our colors, our race should not matter, in the United States.  Not if you are an American citizen.  Assimilate, be American!

Don’t you dare use it, to get special attention.  That makes you a racist.  

Sure, appreciate your culture, if you choose to do so.  But I am an American first.  And my colors are red, white, and blue.  Why can’t we see each other that way?

I just saw, a video of someone who is running for President, and she had these folks standing up.  White and black people.  She had the white people, recite to the black people, that they were sorry, for the pain and heartache, their race caused them.  Now if it wasn’t so filled with manipulation, and hate, it would be nice, but that to me is a spirit of control, and manipulation, and my ancestors did not have anything to do with racism.  I would run out of a service like that.  This is not of God.

Reparations?  Really?  See we are not fully looking at our history, and we are doomed to repeat it, with this race baiting.  It is so wrong, on so many levels.

When I see leaders doing this, I think my goodness, you have a responsibility, to unite people, not divide them.  Why are you doing this?  It is like they lost all sense of whats good.  Their moral codes, are broken.  But that is just my opinion, as an American.

So, to each their own.  We do have freedom of speech. But I can see someone who is race baiting.  I can see the seeds of fear, they are trying to plant, and that does not come from God either.

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.  II TIMOTHY 1:7  KJV

Christ taught us to love one another.  God tells us He is not a respecter of persons.  He loves us all.

A NEW COMMANDMENT I GIVE UNTO YOU, THAT YE LOVE ONE ANOTHER; AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, THAT YE ALSO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:34

And the following verse, we should all remember if we claim we are Christians.

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  John 13:35  King James. 

So if He loves us all, we should love one another.  We should love God first, and then love one another.  As for the immigrant, yes love them too.  But they should be here legally.  If they really want to seek asylum, go to a legal port of entry.  Do it right.  America is compassionate.  We want all people to come.  But legally.  Why is that word left out of conversations?Hawaiian Pictures 2007 February 062

Stop hurting Americans, with all this race baiting, and hate.  We are one nation under God, let us act like it, let us be united.  Let us love one another.

See, what scares me, is that it could get ugly, I want nothing to do with race baiting.  People are getting angry.  You can just sense the pulse of it, and its not unity.  A house divided will fall.

Even though, I do understand discrimination.  I won’t be a part of it.  See, I have been discriminated against.  My family has been discriminated.  And my family, and our ancestors are American.  My dad, God bless his soul, once told me of how badly he was discriminated, against.  But he taught me love this country.  He served it. americanprouddaughterofavet

But we don’t hate those who did that.  And especially will not hold the whole race against them. We forgave.  We know, who we are.  We are American citizens.  We are children of God.  As Christians, and Americans we don’t play the race card.

It makes people into victims. Literally.  They get this mind set, that they are only judged by race.  Don’t play the race card.  With anyone, not if you want peace in your life, and with others.  Don’t.  I don’t claim to be a victim.  Though, I know I fell through the cracks in many ways.  I could but I will not. I am so blessed to live in this nation, and to call it my home.  There is no greater country than the United States.

Even Martin Luther King, who I understand was a Republican said, something to the affect, that he did not want to be judged by the color of his skin, but by the content of his heart.

What I am seeing is a lot of folks, whose heart is not right with God, or with each other. They do not appreciate our great nation, or they would not play the race card, or race bait.  It is wrong.  I believe we need to get right with God.  To repent of all this hate, and our sins.   I believe someday we all will stand before God, and that scares me more.

May God bless America, may we bless God, and stop this hate.  Just remember this, God is not a respecter of persons.  Neither should we, we should just respect each other, love each other, for our differences, the different gifts, and callings each other brings, instead of hating one another, for being a different color, or race.  It’s dumb.

If we disagree, and I have to practice this myself, lets do it, without insulting each other.  Lets stop this please.  We as Americans are better than all of this nonsense.  We live in the greatest nation in the whole world.  We have freedom.  Let us not abuse it.  Or each other.

FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD.  ROMANS 2:11 KJV. 

Thanks for reading my thoughts on this.  If you choose to debate this, I am not going to argue.  See I am using my freedom of speech.  I will ignore those comments that just do not respect or want to argue.  Thank God we all have freedom.  If you live in America.

In Christ,

Elena Ramirez
