From the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth. And even with a question. Which brings doubt.
NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN? GENESIS 3:1 King James.
See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.
The battle will be in the mind. We will be tossed to and fro.
THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. EPHESIANS 4:14. KJV.
See how that scripture talks about doctrine?
We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit. From that tree. And she gave the right answer. But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.
AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE. FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL. GENESIS 3:5 KJV.
What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.
And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil? Because He loves us that much. So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses. That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God.
So we have to be aware of the enemies antics. We have to remember when we doubt. When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous. Thats actually stupid. So I don’t challenge what God says. I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it. That gives me hope. That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth. But Gods truth, will never let me down.
SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH: THY WORD IS TRUTH. JOHN 17:17 KJV.
What does God really say? This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.
Because they do make one question what God really says. But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.
I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings. Of corrupt Bibles. Since, I use a KJV. I don’t get that confusion. Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James. Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying.
Eve did not obey. Adam did not obey. But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better. We do not have to question it. But…by obedience. Thats showing God we are obeying. Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.
If you are in that battle of the mind. In anything, go to God. Rebuke the devil. Thats a spirit of confusion. And God is not the author of confusion.
FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS. I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.
I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.
But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.
Always ask God. Always. In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate. So I can know…..
Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.
First of all, as my disclaimer:
I am not a psychiatrist, I am not in the business, of telling anybody, why they have a mental illness.
But, I am someone who has learned so much from God. And I have seen things in the spirit realm that have taught me, there is a connection between spiritualism and mental illness. Or the battle in the mind. The sense of no peace, the challenge of being stable. Or unstable.
It comes from two sources. And you have to see this from the perspective of your own spirit. Either good or evil. God or the devil. And the foundation of your mental health, will be determined by your spiritual health.
Who rules your spirit? This is the question, you most definitely need to ask yourself. To find out yourself within, who rules your soul? Because this will determine your behavior, and your motives, your mental health, by your spiritualism.
By the choices you make, with God, or the devil. You have no other choice. You may think you do, but it will always result from the consequences, of the choice to believe in God. Or the enemy.
By your choice….this is always a choice. But the principles are in place, and will determine “fruit.”
To obey God, to take His commandments, His law to heart. To fear God, to depart from evil, and to submit to God. Or to give into the devil. To disobey God. With Temptations, disbelief, etc. See the difference.
Scripture tells us, “submit” to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. That key word, is “submitting” to God. Until you do, you will have that battle in the mind. See the enemy is a spirit of confusion. He is known to come, kill, steal, and destroy. He is a mocker. He is jealous, he was of God, so he is also jealous if you try and make God your Lord and savior. He wants to steal the glory from God.
SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU. JAMES 4:7. KJV.
So, if you do not believe in God, you will be tossed to and fro. That spirit, will dominate you, and your behavior, so that you may do things that are not kind, good, or even healthy for yourself. The spirit, will lead you to do things, that are evil. To even think evil. You may have not acted on those thoughts, but they are there, and that is sin. For lack of a better word. So that will dictate to you, and control you, in what you do.
THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, TOSSED TO AND FRO, AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. EPHESIANS 4:14. KJV.
See the above scripture, reinforces what I am always saying about doctrine, because other bible versions are corrupt. And it deceives. You will be tossed to and fro, even if you think you are safe, your not, because your word is corrupt, if you use these fake versions.
If a person, is totally submitted to Christ. Even by the word they choose in a King James. Wanting to obey God, fearing God of consequences of sin, prayerful, in a relationship, the spirit, of God, will lead. There will be no mental illness.
FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM? BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. I CORINTHIANS 2:16 KJV.
I don’t care what people think or try to dictate to me, I know the difference. They have not walked in my shoes. They may mock. But God is not mocked, and they will reap that. But I know, I have had my part, to try and please God. To pray, to obey Him, His commandments. To love….
You see, I was lost. When I was lost that spirit, of the devil led me, and I made so many mistakes in judgment, and in my own personal life. My moral code, was damaged, because I did not submit to God. I actually had no moral code. Or fear of God. Concerning consequences on earth, or if I had died. And that is a very dangerous place to be. Because we will all stand before God. Hell is real. Hell on earth is just as real. I thank Him and praise Him that He saved me, taught me.
But when God found me, and I recall the night, I had a revelation of who Christ was. I submitted to God. For your own revelation, think of what Christ did for you on that cross.
Now you cannot, be partial in this, and just say you believe in God. Because scripture tells us, even the devil believes in God.
The key is totally giving your heart, life, mind, soul to God, so you can grow spiritually. So you can have peace. Scripture also tells us, that there is no peace to the wicked.
Begin by repenting. Even if you don’t think you have done anything wrong. This cleans the slate. Be humble in the sight of God. Ask God to forgive you. Even for unbelieving. This is why I actually believe in daily repentance. Because we can sin, even unknowingly. and we all do sin, folks, and come short of the glory of God. Our works, can be filthy rags….
The way to enrich your mind, is get a King James bible. As you know, I do not support any other bible. Because they are corrupted. Exactly what the enemy wants you to do, so you get static. You get part truth, part lie. You will not grow, until you change your word. And you may have a battle in the mind, until you do.
Stay away from things or situations, that feed your spirit. Like evil movies. Evil books, anything that can plant seeds of evil, or doubt in your mind. Stay away from evil people. Toxic people.
You have to have the mind set, to want to please God. And when you do you will be released, your eyes will be opened, and you can begin the process of healing mentally, because you are healing spiritually.
If I start to watch a movie, or read a book, that I know has evil spiritualism, I put it away from me. You don’t want to tempt yourself.
And you don’t want to let in spirits, that have been cleansed back into your soul. They will come in worse, in greater capacity, that is not great for your soul.
THEN GOETH HE, AND TAKETH WITH HIMSELF SEVEN OTHER SPIRITS MORE WICKED THEN HIMSELF, AND THEY ENTER IN AND DWELL THERE: AND THE LAST STATE OF THAT MAN IS WORSE THAN THE FIRST. EVEN SO SHALL IT BE ALSO UNTIL THIS WICKED GENERATION. MATTHEW 12:45 KJV.
The bottom line is, to be in fear of God, by choosing His Holy spirit, to guide you. So, you can be healed mentally. I truly believe that. With all my heart. See you fear God, so you don’t have to have fear in the mind of something or someone else. Thats the key:
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.
I always recommend, finding help, if you are in that desperate place. But God will help you, if you seek Him. And I hope you find your way, take this to heart. Because Christ, is the way, the truth, and life. Read John 14:6 from a King James.
Feel free to share this post, you might help someone, see why they act the way they do. You might save a soul.

If I was searching for religion, I would want truth. I would want something, that would bring me closer to God. So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants. How to survive.
More then anything how to thrive in life.
There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.
Or how some get misled. Or fall into cults. Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him. Yet they get misled.
First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:
Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups. These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.
Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.
These people leave out one great element, and that is love. Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust. I am talking about holy love. Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments. And just Him. And loving others. Strange how they leave that love out. And that it is a commandment. They leave it out. They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love. You have to listen carefully.
The sad thing though, is many claim they do. They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say. They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on. But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say. They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is. They pick and choose.
Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth. You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.
Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God. Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin. That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.
YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL? MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.
Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision. It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible. GET A KING JAMES BIBLE. Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.
If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church. A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would. Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.
I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway. And where he did not believe there was a hell. And that message is so wrong. But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul. And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong. As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic. And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads. And he is the blind leading the blind. He does become branded a Heretic. But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.
The movie is entitled: Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate. Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it. Because hell is real.
Maybe this is why I write. Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies. They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.
I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself. Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies. You need to search for God yourself. So you can know. Religion, will not do that.
Its a turn off to many. And I understand it. The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says. Religion. Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think. And its wrong.
I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.
So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free. One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.
I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer. By seeing, I needed to repent. By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.
I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate. I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water. But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference. I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.
AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM: FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM: FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.
JOHN 10:4-5 King James.
Look, I don’t know who my audience is here. But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God. Don’t stop searching for God.
You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses. And that we are all the same. We are not!
And you don’t want anything to do with them. I understand that. I stay away from them too. But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is. You need truth, friend.
Don’t search for religion friend. Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings. Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ. Never a person.
I would start by just a prayer. Repenting, admitting, your sins. Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you. Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you. Or implemented as a rule for you.
See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search. Don’t deny the law. Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law. We do.
I recommend a King James bible. For holiness. Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much. Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives. So use only a King James bible.
Pray to Him daily. And I also believe in daily repentance to God. Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent. This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him. He is your greatest friend. He will never leave or forsake you. He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.
You need to keep it up, or you will get cold. If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.
Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.
Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off. But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.
Blessings, and love, in Christ…..
Picking Apart Joyce Meyers Thoughts on Tattoos…
By Christian Author Elena Ramirez
Joyce Meyer, is a prominent leader, in the world. Concerning matters of religion. As a Christian, that she claims to be, I find her thoughts, very disturbing.
I was once one of those who looked to her, as inspiration, because she found Christ. But if she found Him, her thoughts, show, she departed from Him. They show she has departed from His law, and they show she promotes hate, to others who do not agree with her. I base this on the following video: And if by some chance it mysteriously disappears, look it up on youtube. Joyce’s thoughts on tattoos.
I know she is well liked. I know, this may anger, or upset those that follow her, but I am to please God, not man, or any person, and so are you!
The King James scriptures tells us that there will be those, that are blind, and leading the blind. And this describes her exactly.
LET THEM ALONE; THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND. AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH. MATTHEW 15:14 KJV.
Joyce Meyer, starts her sermon, in this video, on the comparison between holiness, and legalism.
This is what Gods word, says about holiness. She does not use this scripture, but I will so you can see what the King James says about holiness.
“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”
Isaiah 35:8 KJV
Her thought, right away, attacks religious people. Because they know having a tattoo is not accepted in the scriptures. She stereo types those that want to obey God. That know truth, that see the error of doing some things. And she calls it “legalism.”
She refers to Isaiah 44:5 and makes reference that its o.k. to have a tattoo, basically because God did it. Which is wrong, the scripture does not promote marking of the skin, it talks about just writing. Subscribing.
She says that it says; That it is tattooed; “I belong to the Lord”. It does not say that. See it from a Holy King James bible. But this is what it says:
“One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.”
Isaiah 44:5 KJV
It does not say tattoo, and she says it does. Please see this.
Again, she makes a reference, that God is promoting it, because He tattooed your name on his hand. The scripture does not say that. It says “graven” How can anybody compare how God writes?
BEHOLD I HAVE GRAVEN THEE UPON THE PALMS OF MY HANDS; THY WALLS ARE CONTINUALLY BEFORE ME. ISAIAH 49:16 KJV.
And to mock, what it says from one scripture to the next, is very dangerous. When she gives an example of God putting earrings, on one, group, but getting angry with the next. Where is the fear of God? To see, His ways are not our ways. She is judging God Himself, in His motives.
Leviticus 20:28 is a reference she gives, its not there. That scripture does not exist in my King James bible. Check. Look it up, listen to the video very carefully. Its not there as a point of reference. About making marks for the dead. That she gives.
That scripture reference is not specific to tattoos, but Leviticus 19:28 is:
“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”
Leviticus 19:28 KJV
A tattoo is a mark on the flesh.
I think what bothers me so very, very much, is first of all she is not using a Holy Bible. As a teacher, as a so called pastor of the word of God, her word is corrupt. And I won’t debate it, but her scripture references, are from bibles, that have been changed. Corrupted. She uses references of scripture, but they are not from the King James. As she quotes scripture. And if this does not show anybody, how wrong it is to use different bibles, then I don’t know what to say to you.
She admits, she picks what she wants, and leaves what she wants out of scripture. Listen to the video. She says it quickly but she admits she does that. And I am paraphrasing her, When she says: “we pick and choose what we want and leave out what we want.” Well she does, she leaves out truth, Gods truth.
She promotes getting a tattoo, and also promotes pushing “religious” people off the cliff. She states she is on the verge of getting a tattoo, and actually defying what Leviticus 19:28 states.
But to promote throwing people off of a cliff, and get it over with….That’s evil. That’s not love. To make religious demons mad? Who gave her that authority? It’s just wrong folks.
Does she not know her words are recorded in the book of life? It is for all of us. We will be judged.
The subliminal message, in there is to attack others, who do not think or believe like she does. And again, that is just pure evil. Christ told us, in John 13:34-35, that we would be known by the love we have for one another. This is what my King James bible says:
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
John 13:34-35 KJV
The whole motive of her subliminal message is to disobey God. To make herself the example to have pretty clothes, make up, and a tattoo.
In the King James scriptures it talks about vanity. And if she gets a tattoo, she is using herself for you to be disobedient in that. Because she is making herself even here in the video an example.
“And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.”
2 Kings 17:15 KJV
She talks about Laughing, well, the scripture says, it is better to be sorrowful. Then to have laughter. She talks about people and that they want to see you happy? Well, food for thought…What about what God wants? See, you need to see that, she totally disregards the incentive to try and please God. And that’s just wrong.
“Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.”
Ecclesiastes 7:3 KJV
Her whole message, really does not promote, drawing close to God. To repent. To obey God, and His laws. To see the error of ones ways. It actually is defiant. Prideful, to say one’s ways, are right, and there is a great danger to that. Because God is not mocked.
See we really cannot have joy, or peace, if we are wicked. Or more importantly as God has called us, to be in holiness. There is no holiness, without Gods law. Without obedience. Without repentance. And a changing of ways.
A true sense of soul searching, with repentance, a hunger for God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, to please Him, is the only one who can do that.
To even take her thoughts to heart, is so disturbing to me, because I have learned the hard way to get right with God, one needs to take His laws to heart.
Now the concept between religion, and relationship with Christ is this. Religion is rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, and groups. But if you are being legal, which God has given us His law, to follow, that is relationship. We can only have relationship with Christ, when we repent, obey God, and pray, and seek Him in that relationship. Pleasing God. Avoiding religion, well what she promotes, is Joyce Meyers religion.
I think what also bothers me, and that’s why I am writing about it, is basically she is promoting, dismissing the law, because it makes one act in legalism. And that’s like saying, I am right, you are wrong, to God Himself, and it’s a turn off to be obedient to God.
She challenges the “law” And that’s dangerous, these are Gods laws. He is legal. And holiness cannot be obtained, unless we follow Gods laws. So again, call me legal. Because I love His law. I see that it protects me. I see, that by trying, and yes I fail, but I see, that if I attempt to obey Him, He will extend grace. But you cannot disregard the law.
The thought, many Christians have is that the law, is abolished. That we are free from the law. God did not flip flop from the Old Testament, to the New Testament. He does not change. We do. The only law we are free from, is the law of sin and death. Not Gods commandments.
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:2 KJV
There are many scriptures that attest to being legal with God. And that if we even keep Gods law, we are happy.
PROVERBS 29:18 King James
WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.
You know, I want to be happy in God’s law, so call me legalistic.
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:8 KJV)
He tells us, not to forsake His law. So that means if you want to please God, you get legalistic. Because He is the example to follow.
For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. (Proverbs 4:2 KJV)
The doctrine she teaches us, warns us according to King James scripture, is don’t follow people like that. I will not follow Joyce Meyers. I follow Christ. She is a terrible role model for Christ. And one should never follow a person any way.
No matter what, they propose. We are to follow Christ. This is why you need to get the truth yourself. Get a King James bible, and learn. What Gods laws are, yourself. Thats the only way you will grow.
And that is going to upset some, here, but I state it because its wrong.
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 KJV)
I don’t judge anybody that might have a tattoo, I really don’t. I have met some very nice people who have tattoos, even family members. But if we really want to please God, we know what the scripture says.
We know, if we want to clean the slate, we repent. God won’t hold it against you, if you repent. But the direction she takes in this, is very self-serving. And that comes from hell itself. The devil was always about the devil. Self.
What she proposes… is that It is not humble, it is not remorseful, to know and admit, the error of one making a mistake, in even getting a tattoo. The scriptures, when they are truth, will bring light, to help us see the error of our ways. But I see nothing like that, from her message.
And its sad. I don’t judge her, but I am called to warn, even the righteous. Who think this is right.
Its not right folks, its wrong. And if you think I am judging. Read Ezekiel 33 from a King James it says we are to warn. I am warning here. I am loving my brothers and sisters in Christ, so they know the difference. Love warns. You would too, if you saw someone near the fire. The fire of hell itself. If you knew the truth. Her thoughts are very disturbing.
For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: (Proverbs 6:23 KJV
In conclusion, knowing, that the truth sets us and let the redeemed of the Lord say so. I have been redeemed, so I say so.
I may very well get challenged by some of you, who support her, love her, and you know what you need to do, is pray for her. Arguing with me, will not resolve this. I know what the Holy Scriptures says.
But I won’t debate or argue about this with anybody. I will ignore comments on this. I know that I just have to write this. My motive is to please God. And if it really helps someone to see the truth, then praise be to God. I praise God anyway…
PSALMS 107:20 KING JAMES
LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.
JOHN 8:32 KJV.
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.
Just ask yourself, with what I have shared, and what you can see, from the video yourself, why would anyone promote to you, that you disobey God? Look at the fruit folks, this is how you will know them.
Matthew 7:20 WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.
Feel free to share this link you might just open someones eyes, to truth.
In Christ, by Elena Ramirez
I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person. It took the blow of it away. It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense. I could relate. But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love. That did my heart good. So good I am writing about it.
I do, admire when someone apologizes. It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry. I made a mistake. I was wrong, please accept my apology.
It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more. It seems like pride, takes over often. And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them. Or makes them look inferior. But not to God, He sees….And He will judge.
So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it.
With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy. Thats the wrong approach. Getting into someones business.
Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us. It really does.
I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me. And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment. It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.
So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses. I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive. But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.
Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say. “You know what I made a mistake.” They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.
They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.
Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.
Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere. But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive. You see, being unforgiving, is a poison. And you don’t want that in your soul. So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.
I really do respect it, and love seeing it. If someone apologizes. That tells me, they want to grow. They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.
But to each their own. I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.
Sad thing is, because one never knows….
I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.
See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong. Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out. And you may need to do some major repenting. Because you are hearing the wrong voice. Thats not Christ.
