BEING BROKEN DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNOT GO ON ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2BEING BROKEN DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNOT GO ON….
Sometimes, we stop, and we say, why Lord, why?

We wonder why we have taken this path in the journey of life? Or why circumstances have led us to be where we are, doing what we do, and we wonder…

If you are wise, you will repent, for your part in it.

For circumstances, out of your control that has made you broken, God is merciful, and God will have vengeance. And can bring a restoration…

Just trust Him….but more then anything go to God. With all your soul, with all your might, and let Him see your broken heart. Your brokenness.

THE SACRIFICES OF GOD ARE A BROKEN SPIRIT: A BROKEN AND A CONTRITE HEART, O GOD, THOU WILT NOT DESPISE. PSALM 51:17 KJV.

Comparing ourselves, in the good, or the bad, with others really is not healthy for ourselves. Don’t do that. Let God have that doubt, or envy, or frustration.

For those of us who have been broken from time to time, we have a resilience, that motivates us to go on, move on, in Christ. No matter what. Because if you have made Christ your Lord, and savior, you know all things are possible.

Let me repeat that all things are possible with God. STILL…

No matter what life says, you are, or people say you are, or even deny what you do, or cannot do. God always has the final word.

He says, BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD: I WILL BE EXALTED AMONG THE HEATHEN, I WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH. PSALM 46:10 KJV.

When you feel broken, lost, hurt, abused, alone, remember to be still in your heart, knowing who He is. As the saying goes, “Let go, and let God.”

Let God be exalted in your heart, among people, as you give God glory, and in all you do. Like the scripture says…This is how you are healed. In that brokenness. Do that with all your heart, and you will see the healing process….

This is how you go on…..I know.

REPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3395.jpgREPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY……By Elena Ramirez

I truly believe, that REPENTANCE is one of the greatest gifts God gives us. A tool, to not neglect. It is the greatest weapon against the enemy. It cleans the slate. It makes us humble. It stops the penalty of sin, that the enemy uses against us, to have a legal right to attack us.

And its all because of what Christ did on the cross for us. Don’t forget about this gift. Don’t neglect what Christ did on the cross, and yes, even after you accepted Christ as Lord and savior.

Repentance, will ensure your Salvation. I believe in it daily. Like an apple a day, keeps the doctor away. Repentance, will keep your Salvation in tact. We all sin, folks, we all come short of the glory of God. Thats King James scriptural.

The blood of Jesus, will not cover you, if you sin. You will have to start all over. Sin, will separate you from God. So repent.

The enemy always looks for a way to deceive us. But again, the fear of God will bring us to repent. To stay right in the sight of Christ.

Please remember Repentance, when you pray:

NOW I REJOICE, NOT THAT YE WERE MADE SORRY, BUT THAT YE SORROWED TO REPENTANCE: FOR YE WERE MADE SORRY AFTER A GODLY MANNER, THAT YE MIGHT RECEIVE DAMAGE BY US IN NOTHING.

FOR GODLY SORROW WORKETH REPENTANCE TO SALVATION, NOT TO BE REPENTED OF: BUT THE SORROW OF THE WORLD WORKETH DEATH.

FOR BEHOLD THIS SELFSAME THING, THAT YE SORROWED AFTER A GODLY SORT, WHAT CAREFULNESS IT WROUGHT IN YOU, YEA, WHAT CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, YEA, WHAT INDIGNATION, YEA, WHAT FEAR, YEA, WHAT VEHEMENT DESIRE, YEA, WHAT ZEAL, YEA, WHAT REVENGE! IN ALL THINGS YE HAVE APPROVED YOURSELVES TO BE CLEAR IN THIS MATTER.

II CORINTHIANS 7:9-11 KJV.

Blessings, and love,

WHAT SEPARATES US FROM GOD? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


PB030096.jpgWhat I am about to tell you is truth, but some are going to get angry.  Because they stand on one scripture, but they forget to look in the rest of the Bible.  And I am talking about a King James bible.  

This scripture, many take to heart, and they don’t think anything separates us from Christ.  They stand on it, and sadly they don’t see that there is more, that can separate us from Christ.  There is more to it….

WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST?  SHALL TRIBULATION, OR DISTRESS, OR PERSECUTION OR FAMINE, OR NAKEDNESS, OR PERIL OR SWORD?  NAY IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS, THROUGH HIM THAT LOVED US. ROMANS 8:35-36.  KJV.

So, they will argue they will debate it.  They will twist it, and look for the loop hole in it.  

To defend that they can sin, that once saved is always, saved.  But its not.  They think their salvation is secure.  And they think they don’t have to worry about it.  Wrong. 

Friend, sin, separates us from God.  We serve a Holy God.  One without blemish.  And yes we can by the blood of Jesus, by repentance, by going to the cross, we can receive holiness. We can receive the promise of that above scripture.  

But if sin, is there, and it is not repented.  That scripture will not give you that promise, unless you repent.  Because if you have sinned, after receiving Christ, you will make your salvation null and void.  People do not like hearing that, but even in Ezekiel 33, we are told, to warn each other, and that includes a righteous person.  

Please look at this carefully.  Sometimes, we can miss it.  And there are many reasons, why we can miss it.  Perhaps, your Sunday school teacher did not address this, or the pastor.  Maybe you are using a corrupted bible, that has translated words, and meanings, so you don’t see it.  

But sin, separates us from God.  

BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE; NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR;  BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS, HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  Isaiah 59:1-2.  KJV.

The only cure for that is to repent.  

AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION; AND SHE REPENTED NOT.  BEHOLD I WILL CAST HER INTO A BED AND THEM THAT COMMIT ADULTERY WITH HER INTO GREAT TRIBULATION, EXCEPT THEY REPENT OF THEIR DEEDS.  Revelation 2:21-22.  KJV. 

Hope this helps you.  Maybe you repented, when you first accepted Christ.  But repentance, dear friends, should even be daily.  Because we all can miss it.  We all fall short of the glory of God.  We all sin, even when we don’t think we are.  Thats pride, if you think you are above all that.  Seriously.  

Blessings, Elena Ramirez 

  

TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING…..By Elena Ramirez

If we cannot take a stand for God, in just a little thing. Like not seeing a certain movie, or not going to a place that is notorious, for sin, or accepting people, in our lives who are bad influences.

What kind of stand is that? How can we stand against the enemy in a big thing, if we are not strong against him, in a little thing?

Folks, we can miss it. I am sad today for I see, the little foxes steal the vines…..

We are the vine, growing with Christ, but if we do not submit to Him, we can be cut off.

Don’t we see that? Again. How can we stand against the enemy in big things, if we won’t submit to God even in little things?

And take a stand against that little thing? We ALL have to see this…

I DECREE I WILL NOT SELL MY BOOK IN THE HOUSE OF GOD ~ By Elena Ramirez


IMG_0015_2

If interested in reading my books via Smashwords, go to this link. My latest book. BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST. 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

I just want to decree this, I want to make it clear. As many of you know, I do want to speak publicly, in your church or congregation.

I have not done it in a while.  I know, God has His reasons. But something dawned on me, just now, to speak this, to publicly proclaim it.

IF….

If I am ever called to give a testimony, or to speak publicly in a church. I will not try to sell my book there. Even today, I wrote just on impulse, Gods impulse, about how Christ turned the tables, on those who changed the temple, to sell what they had.  I don’t want to be one of those Christians.

If God blesses my book, financially, in other ways, then so be it. But I will not try to peddle the word of God, or peddle my book, in His House. In His temple.

That may sound strange to some. But I don’t care. I really do only want to serve God. But if money came into the situation, somehow it would take away from the message.

I never want to compromise or let money, be the root of evil in serving God.  

Does that make sense? I don’t know, but I am proclaiming it here.

To God be the glory….

 

By Elena Ramirez 

AND THE JEWS PASSOVER WAS AT HAND, AND JESUS WENT UP TO JERUSALEM.  AND FOUND IN THE TEMPLE THOSE THAT SOLD OXEN AND SHEEP AND DOVES, AND THE CHANGERS OF MONEY SITTING:  AND WHEN HE HAD MADE A SCOURGE OF SMALL CORDS, HE DROVE THEM ALL OUT OF THE TEMPLE, AND THE SHEEP, AND THE OXEN; AND POURED OUT THE CHANGERS MONEY, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES.  AND SAID UNTO THEM THAT SOLD DOVES, TAKE THESE THINGS HENCE; MAKE NOT MY FATHERS HOUSE AN HOUSE OF MERCHANDISE.  JOHN 2:13-16.  KJV.  

BE CAREFUL OF VOICES FROM FALSE PROPHETS ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0105BE CAREFUL OF VOICES AND FALSE PROPHETS…..

There are many voices, many who say they are called by the Lord. Many, may have good intentions. But I am very careful who I listen to. I am very careful, not to take every bodies word on a matter. Or anybody.

I think I have learned to be careful not to criticize as well, but I am careful. I take more time to pray about it, then jump to conclusions as well. Because of the spirit of deception. How we need discernment.

You see, there are those, who are wolves, in sheeps clothing. There are those, who may look, and sound like they are sheep. But they are not. Look at their motive. Is it for Salvations, is it to win people to God? Is it for money? Do they try to bait you, so you can give money?

And when they share a word, what scriptures is it based on? If its not a King James word, I am sorry, I shut the sound off, turn away, and will not receive anybodies word, on a matter. Because to me, it is corrupted word, that is not holy and anointed. So thats a big sign to me.

Because thats a voice of deception. Friends, be careful. I know you want to grow. I know sometimes, we can be so trusting. But, there are spiritual curses, that come with some of these false prophets, and you want to avoid them. We want to remember, we know Christ’s voice, and to another we will not follow.

The goal is always again, to have the mind of Christ, and to have discernment. Be careful what you receive, what you share, and who you listen to. I say this in Christ love.

Be careful. DO NOT TRUST IN LYING WORDS THAT CANNOT PROFIT. (PARAPHRASING) SEE JEREMIAH 7:8 KJV.

TRUST YE NOT IN LYING WORDS, SAYING, THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, ARE THESE. JEREMIAH 7:4. KJV.

I LOVE TRUTH LET ME EXPLAIN WHY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0136I do love truth, and let me please explain why.  I love it first of all, because I discovered Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  

John 14:6, from my King James Bible tells me this…

So, as I even break up that scripture to describe my love for truth, it goes, to say, I love Christ who gave me a new life.  And He showed me the way.

Folks, life is hard, growing up, the way I did, and in situations, where life did not always provide, guidance, or support, or love for that matter.  I made so many mistakes,  because I was not in truth.  I would go with the flow of things, or I would find myself “compromising” many things, because thats what I thought people did.  Mostly, because I did not know better.  

I think I learned the hard way.  About truth but I have such a great love for truth now, that I also know its called discernment.  Discernment to know good and evil.  That does not come to you, if you are in any kind of deception.  Fact is, if there is even one small place in our spirits, that is not totally up for truth, as Christ’s way, in our life, well, we can be deceived.  

So, I long for truth.  I long for it in my life, in little things in big things.  I long to see truth, in government, and well, we don’t.  I long to see it in friends, and acquaintances, because its like being on the same page with God, if the goal for truth is sought after.  I long to see it in business, and just everything concerning me.  

As many of you know by my writings. I only want to use a King James Bible.  Because it is truth.  And this is what I recommend to anybody.  If you want truth, get on the same page with God, in His truth, not in mans truth, or a publisher, who have lied, by compromising it and changing it.  Even if one period is missing, or one word changed, that bible is corrupted.  

Oh many argue about authenticity, but I look at how long it has stood the test of time.  Over 400 years.  This truth, is holy, it is anointed.  I won’t waste my time on any other Bible version, because they are not from Gods throne.  They do not come from God.  

To understand truth, you have to always understand, a spirit.  The spirit of a lie.  Or the spirit of truth.  The spirit of a lie, will come to deceive, and it comes from the devil himself.  The spirit of truth, comes from Gods throne, and through the Holy spirit, we can learn truth, we can know truth, and we can know the difference between a lie, and truth.

Many people do not have discernment, to find truth, because they do compromise, in matters.  They do not totally submit to God, in truth, because they are tempted to do other wise, and they can lose their direction.  The little foxes steal the vines.  So, if one is compromising, in even a little thing, not being honest, with themselves, or others, I believe that can bring a spirit of delusion, which is a curse.  And yes that is King James scriptural.  

Because I know Gods ways are not my ways, I have peace.  I don’t understand the mystery of many principles, but because I do not, I trust God to show me truth, at a moments notice.  And He does.  I get the gut feeling, that thought if there is no peace in something, I should know, not to do something.  It also requires prayer.  But if my spirit, is up to no good, in trying to deceive, or dishonest, or lying, about anything, well, I find that truth can evade a person.

I do have discernment, and many times, I may speak truth, but it is rejected.  Or challenged, or denied.  Its not that I want to hit anybody on the head with truth, I hate that feeling myself.  But sometimes, one may get a warning about something, and you see the direction someone is going, and you want to warn them by truth, but its rejected.  

Truth has set me free.  Truth has opened my eyes.  Truth, Gods truth, is the most powerful, beautiful force, I have ever seen open doors.  Yet it is not promoted, in our society, its not mentioned often by anybody, and it seems to be put in the rear, for guidance.  Its not celebrated, embraced, or cherished.  In fact, there seems to be a spirit of deception, to keep one from the truth, and how that must grieve God.  

I cherish it, because I cherish what Christ did on the cross for me.  Because He loved me so much, and you, that He gave His life, so we could recognize His truth.  So we could recognize, He is that way.  To have life, and life abundantly.  

Without truth, its not abundant.  So I am very cautious of anything that represents itself as truth, but may be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  Or may be a counterfeit, or something corrupt.  I long for truth, and holiness, and purity, in my own soul.  Oh I know, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  But if I cannot be honest to God myself, in truth, then how can I be effective?  But I long for His presence in my own life, and I just know, if I even lie to myself, that presence would leave.  

Christ is truth friends.  There is no greater example of truth, then who He is, what He did for us, and the ability He has given us, to understand Him, and truth.  In life, or death. 

So when I hear people talk about this new movie, the Shack, I wonder, why they would embrace something, that is not based on His holy word, and actually contradicts Gods truth?  What is it, in the mystery of life and death, that would cause someone to not see His truth in this?  

As I have written, the Lord, spoke to me one morning, and told me not to go and see it.  I had no preconceived ideas about it, but I will obey.  But it was ironic, that after, He commanded me not to go and see it, and yes, when He speaks to me, I know its a commandment…..  I than began to see the many warnings about it being heresy.  I know God tested me in this.  Because now I see the truth, in avoiding it.  

I don’t know His reasons, but I know, His voice, and that voice of truth, warned me, and I will obey.  Its not worth losing hearing His voice to compromise myself in anything that would take away truth.  Does that make sense?  And its not based on His truth.  So, I need not waste my time to see it.  Thats my thought anyway…..

Truth is a beautiful wonderful freeing thing my friend, that we need to embrace, and we need to promote, and we need to be an example of it.  

It is so needed in our world, and in our own personal lives.  I cannot live a lie.  Thats not truly living.  So I trust God, to find the way, to find my life in Him, because of who He is.

Truth is the only thing, I know, that will truly set me, or anybody free.  

Yes, I love truth…

Gods truth, and no other.  By the way, I have learned not to argue or debate about truth.  It stands on its own merit.
