HOW TO FIGHT THE SPIRIT OF SUICIDE AND GIVING UP IN GENERAL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3955.jpgI write this from a place of sickness.  A place, where I have the flu, or whatever it is, and it is trying to take my hope away, my trust in God, and where I feel so out of it, that I could just give up.  But God…  It seems, He draws out my gift, even at the worst of times….

As I try to rest, in the day, I am in a spiritual battle.  My dreams, and my spirit is restless, and I hear the devil, telling me to give up.  And I say no….

But God….

But God reminds me, to always fight a good fight of faith.  I am a warrior.  I have fought all my life to survive.  And I am older now, and I have not met success, in certain ways.  

Yes, my life is fruitful, because of my walk with Christ, He saved me.  He pulled me out of the miry clay.  Yes, my life is successful, because I do have a wonderful husband and son, who love me very much.  And the devil, has tried to take that away from me many times, but God, protected me, when it came to temptation.  Or just giving up, on my marriage.  When there was trouble.  

I used to fight and flee.  Because I grew up fighting alone.  But I learned to fight, and have faith.  And no, I have not met goals even in my writing.  I am so limited, but God is not.  In who sees my writings.  

But thats o.k. I will fight the good fight of faith, and continue on.  I will share what the Lord puts on my heart.  I will fight.  Life, is precious.  

But our society, does not protect life.  We do not promote it, or there would not be abortion clinics, throughout our nation.  

Irony of just who I am, my mother, was not able to have children.  She did not want me.  She did not want children.  She actually took medical, advancements, to tie her tubes, and it failed.  I was conceived.  But she did not abort me.  She did not stop the plan of God for me and my life.  I was born.  My father prayed for me.  I am an answer to prayer.  

So, I appreciate life, I appreciate the life God has given me.  Especially, after I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  I cleaned up.  Quick!  I repented, I saw how close I was to death, and even hell.

I will not take the cowardly way out, by ending my own life, even when things have been terrible.  And they have been, throughout my life.  I have missed the boat, the plane, and the train, in a lot of things.  Yes, I have regrets.  But I will not give up…

Recently, we have heard in the news of two people, who have given up on life.  They were people in the news.  By their accomplishments, by their gifts and callings.  But they took a wrong turn now.  By suicide.   I won’t name them.  My goodness, they need closure.  For their family.  And then there was a friend in the family, to my son.  He was a young man, and he took his life.  

Why?  

Why do people give up?  Why do they stop caring.  Yes, life is hard sometimes, but don’t ever give up.  That is a spirit of suicide, that goes totally against who we can be in Christ.  And that comes right from hell, not God.  

You have to know who Christ is, and you have to know who the devil is.  And the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Read John Chapter 10 from a King James bible.  

Christ, said, He came to give life, and that we “might” have it abundantly.  Might?  Hmm, what does that mean, when you are trying to sort out life, its situations, your hope, your faith, and you are trying, to figure out what to do?

It does not mean taking your own life, or giving up.  I guess, I just come from a place of faith, because thats who I am.  Because I have not always had the success, to say, my life is a success.  Or that I have lived abundantly.  I have not always.  But I dream about it.  I hope for it, and I won’t let go of God, or of my hopes, in having that life abundantly.

Some might say, because I am in my 60’s thats it, well I say, the devil is a liar.  

And I know it.  You see, “But God”….. has stepped in so many times, when I was at the bottom of the barrel, and saved me.  Yes suicide, and giving up, are options, but not if I embrace who I am in Christ.  And thats the whole point here.  

I submit to God.   I resist the devil, and he must flee.  I do it even here, in my writing…. I submit to God, and God can fight the battle in my sickness, in my healing, in my relationships, or in my life, in general.  I won’t give up.

I won’t!

I hold on, even now, and I write, and I let this out of my spirit, to proclaim it.  Because there are people, who do not know God.  They do not know how to believe in God, they don’t know, that there is always a chance, even if it looks like you are not promised tomorrow.  

I have seen as you have, many get a bad doctors report, and they believe, thats it.  Thats the end of it, just give up, take your own life, at your own pace, and they end it.  Thats so wrong. 

Look, my God is not an ATM.  I am not going to give you a bunch of bull, and try to twist your mind, or your spirit, by telling you, just have faith. 

You cannot have faith, if you do not know who God is.  Thats the bottom line.  You have to learn who He is.  You have to know, that He is not mocked.  You have to learn, and know, that He has His commandments, His ways, and we are to follow them.  Not religion.  Not some mans, rules, regulations, and traditions, that he established in a group, and calls it religion, or even Christianity.  

When I see, the distortion of Gods holy word, by so many, by pastors, by churches, it makes me righteously angry.  And I get that because, I know, the truth, the truth, that truly has set me free.  When I see corrupt Bibles, that are part truth, and part lie, yes I get righteously, angry.  

But yet, I don’t push my faith on anybody any more. Oh yes, I did, I would be a liar, if I did not admit that.  But…. I don’t try that hard any more.  I don’t give up.  But I don’t try to force faith, or force belief in God.  Thats His job, not mine.  

But I won’t give up.  Even if He does not answer my prayers.  Even if He leaves me like I am right now.  I won’t….

I will, write, and write, about His goodness, about what pleases Him, because I know Him.  I know Him personally.  

I don’t have a religion, I have a relationship with Him.  And it began, the moment, I saw what He did on that cross for me.  That He took those beatings, that He was nailed to the cross, and endured the pain for me.  The mocking.  The sorrow.  He took it, so I could write this, even now to you.

Don’t give up on life!  Don’t give in to the spirit of suicide, or even giving up for that matter.  After He died, He went straight to hell, to get those keys from the devil, so the devil, would not have that legal right, to make you give up.  Or to steal your soul.  But you have to start even where you are right now….

You know how you begin?

By His holy King James word.  By throwing away that pride, that stupid pride, that wants to deny there is no God.  By admitting, you are a sinner.  By repenting, for even giving up, on God, and on life.  Because there can be a tomorrow.  He can heal you.  Just by what He did on that cross.  He can heal you physically, and spiritually.  

But you have to humble yourself in His sight.  And yes, repent, daily, because we can sin daily.  Many don’t like to believe this, but if you backslide, you can lose salvation, because you gave into sin.  Do we not know, sin, separates us from God?  This is King James scriptural.  He says, He will blot out our names.  Look it up…

READ THESE SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.

BUT HE GIVETH MORE GRACE.  WHEREFORE HE SAITH, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE.  SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD, RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU.  CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS YE DOUBLE MINDED.  BE AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP, LET YOUR LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND YOUR JOY TO HEAVINESS.  HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP.  JAMES 4:6-10.  KJV.  

You cannot resist the devil, without submitting to God first, dear ones.  

And the devil is the one, that is telling you to give up, give up on life, give up on your dreams, give up on your health.  He is saying give up.  He is telling you that with a spirit of suicide for whatever it is….

Don’t you dare.  I raise up my sword of truth, to tell him, even now, he is a liar, and must depart, yes, I feel sick.  Yes, I hurt, yes, I am sad, but I will never give up on God.  I write this with tears, because I know what its like to give up.  Yet, I gather myself up, even if I have to crawl on my knees.  And I do…

And just this week, again, we saw souls, give up.  And it grieves me.  Because there is always a chance with God.  If only they had submitted to God, resisted the enemy, that spirit, of suicide, and giving up, would have left them.  It grieves me, because His commandment is thou shalt not kill.  Killing oneself, and the temple, He resides in, is wrong.  

I don’t know Gods mercy, in all things.  But if I do not do my part, how can I work out my salvation, with fear and trembling, of Him.  When we are commanded to fear God.  That is not taught by our prolific, ministers.  Because they just tickle your ears.  But I have nothing to lose but my sorrows, by telling you to fear God, and don’t give up!

Sounds easy?  Huh?  It is if we take His yoke.  He told us, take my yoke it is easy…..

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME; FOR I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART:  AND YE SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.  Matthew 11:30-31   KJV.  

Finding rest for your soul, requires your submitting to God, resisting the devil, and He will flee.  This is how we find our rest.

Not by giving up.  Till my last breath, I will trust God.  I will submit to God, I will resist the devil.  Whether or not anything else changes, or not.  I will try and do it His way.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.  

Go to Him now, bow down, in the sight of a mighty God.  Repent, tell Him you are sorry, tell Him, you want life abundantly.  Let Him heal you, and cleanse you, and renew you, for a new lease in life.  Read Jeremiah 17:14, it is a prayer, for healing…..

Yes, life, abundantly, by only doing that….. can start the process.  There is more.  A whole book, that tells you how.  And its not just in the book, I wrote, “HOW TO HAVE FAITH.”  But its in His holy word, a sword of truth, the King James Bible.  Don’t use anything else, if you don’t want to give up.

Yes, I could keep writing, here right now, but a little food for the soul, by writing Gods word, nourishes me, and so I close till, God says, write again, Elena.  

Write it again….

Blessings, and love,

In Christ,

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…

MY THOUGHTS ON OPPOSITION AND REJECTION IN THE BODY OF CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2MY THOUGHTS ON OPPOSITION AND REJECTION IN THE BODY OF CHRIST ~ By Elena Ramirez

There are times, you will share your heart, you will share your faith, and you will find that people will not accept you and will reject you.  It may cause you to draw back.  Because you have been hurt.  Burned.  This is not the time to pull back, but to pull yourself back up, and put on the full armor of God, and raise your shield of faith up.  Give God glory…

This is a time to grow stronger.  To learn, to participate…  This is not a time to get weaker, don’t back off, from who you are in Christ.  Don’t get discouraged with rules, and regulations, and traditions, that are made by men, and groups, that are religion.  Or even rules and regulations made by the world.  

Relationship is obtainable with Christ.  By true pure holy word, from the King James, and by prayer.  Don’t let religion or the world, tell you you are scum, because someone cannot see your potential.  You must see your own potential in Christ, and you must grow!

You see, whats sad, is not everybody respects.  And whats more sad, is you don’t expect especially brothers and sisters in Christ, to turn on you like a dog.  You kind of expect it from the world, but not Christians.  But you need to keep on…..You question your own motives.  And you see when you have been wronged.

Not when you know there is no malice in your heart, in even discussing matters.  Some people cannot comprehend truth, or an open heart.  One that has been healed.  One that has seen truth.  One that really does try to fight a good fight of faith.  It bothers them to see you maintain who you are in Christ. 

I know many people, have a hard time, with my own stance on some matters of God.  I don’t profess, to be always right, but when I know, I am right, and I am challenged, fought with, mocked, rejected, made fun of, I have come to realize usually the person, I am dealing with, has their own issues.  Insecurities….

And so it becomes a challenge, to them, to try and discredit me, or make me look bad, so they can look good.  That is evil. Exactly what the devil, tried to do in the Kingdom of God.  

They may think they are so sly.  With subliminal messages, with words that undermine.  To mock, or puff up, so prideful….to hurt.  Thats the goal by them to hurt. 

But I have learned its not so much the words, but the actions.  The behaviors. People will only be around, as long as you give them attention.  Once you stop that, they stop as well, and you see the fruit.  Walk away. 

Love, loves, at all times.  Even if people do not agree with you.  Something to be said, about just being courteous….

Anyway….

I want to encourage you to keep shining your light for Christ.  There is a lost world out there.  Don’t let people, who have very deep rooted, problems of their own, make you feel inferior, because you are shining.  Shining for the King of Kings.  The Lord of Lords.  You are called to be obedient to this calling….

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, GO YE, INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.  HE THAT BELIEVETH AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED:  BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED.  AND THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE:  IN MY NAME SHALL THEY CAST OUT DEVILS:  THEY SHALL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES.  THEY SHALL TAKE UP SERPENTS: AND IF THEY DRINK ANY DEADLY THING, IT SHALL NOT HURT THEM:  THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.  MARK 16:15-18

There is so much we can do, by being true to Christ.  But religion tries to change that.  It tries to twist and change His truth. As you can tell I do not trust or like religion.  It has tried to hurt me and discredit me.  And this is why, I don’t trust many….And this is why I warn you…..

But you must see, you must know to be careful yourself, you do not get prideful.  Be careful not to get full of yourself because you may know truth.  

Its easy to do, if you take your eyes off of Christ.  But put them back on the Lord, and His suffering, and realize your sins, the sins of that brother or sister in Christ is what put Jesus on the cross to begin with.  To save us. 

This is why when I see, someone at the pulpit, puffing themselves up, or not walking in love, I see, they have to come to that place themselves, and realize the fruit they are producing is not Christ.

Yet they are trying to make someone think and act a certain way, according to the rules of their religion.  This is a spirit of manipulation, and that is like witchcraft.  I thank God, I learned to be submissive to God.  At an early age, but anybody that tries to control me, by denying me, even courtesy, well I can do without.  

Wisdom tells me, I cannot make anybody do anything.  As I do not want someone to try and make me do something.  Religion, tries to enforce things, by even rejecting others, with different approaches.  Or insisting they are right. 

The sad thing is, if you are a Christian, you need to see, we are all growing on the vine.  We may be at different stages.  As a baby Christian, as a seasoned Christian, but we are to walk in love, as Christ commanded us.  To be brothers and sisters, with kindness, respect and compassion.  And when a pastor, or another Christian rejects you, they are being disobedient to the commandment of love.  

Be smart my friends, you don’t have to join them, sometimes, you have to walk alone.  Sometimes, you have to learn yourself, in relationship with Christ truth.  But don’t get turned off by God, just because others in His name rejected you.  Don’t lose your faith.

This is a time, to seek God more, with all your heart, and being.   

You need to be smart by looking at the fruit.  I have opened myself to many, and loved them, but they could not accept my own honesty, or my own flaws, and rejected me, and have been mean to me.  It hurts.  I won’t deny that.  But I have been hurt enough now, to wear my armor of God and quench those fiery darts.  They bounce off of me now.  

But I know the difference now, and I have realized, I actually thank God for those who are mean, because they have taught me to be stronger in Christ.  To seek Him, not religion.  Not people not groups.  I follow Christ, not a person. 

Christ, does not want us to become someones punching bag, or door mat, in fact, when they don’t receive you.  Shake the dust off.   This is scriptural.  Look it up. In a KJV bible. 

You begin to see signals, when people avoid you.  Or when they are not kind, or support you.  Or they only see you and love you at their convenience.  Or on their terms.  But if you share your faith, they are not always mature enough to let someone even have a difference of opinion.  They then snub you. Reject you, openly or subliminally. 

The hardest trials I have learned, is learning that other Christian brothers and sisters really are not my brother or sister, but they have made me their enemy.  Those have been my greatest wounds in life, betrayal, hate, mockery from a person, I called a sister or brother in Christ.  I call that the Judas spirit. 

And for that they will need to examine their own conscience, and to reflect that in their own time for they will be judged by God himself.  

IF I SIN, THEN THOU MARKEST ME, AND THOU WILT NOT ACQUIT ME FROM MINE INIQUITY.  JOB 10:14  KJV.  

People wonder, why I have fear of God?  Why I wonder if salvation is lost?  Because I know that He is the one who will judge me, but if I did not do my best in love, and in guarding my Salvation…. working it out with fear and trembling…I am the one who is responsible for my own growth.  My choices. My soul.  I do not want to reap hell but heaven when I leave this earth.  We reap what we sow.  Galatians 6:7.  Look it up, in a KJV.

God supplied knowledge, wisdom, the tools to help me grow.  Prayer, my King James Bible.  He did his part….He supplied my Salvation through Christ.  But it is my responsibility to stop and reflect now and then.  

Am I doing whats right in the sight of God?  Am I being obedient?  Am I walking in love, am I giving someone a chance to be their own person in Christ?  Am I helping someone, who is maybe trying to help me?  Am I praying….  

Or has pride, stopped my own growth….Am I practicing what I preach?

I know He is the only one who could deny me heaven or hell.  So, I try now more then ever, to walk in love, even if love is not extended to me.  

Its not easy being a Christian, but I would never go back to a life without God.  I would never go back to the ways of the world.  To sin, to just take my salvation for granted.  Not when I know what Christ did for me on the cross.   I just think if we do not fear God, and we take our salvation for granted, we really are in a dangerous place.  A place of being full.  And that being full of ourselves, not God.  A place of taking what Christ did for granted….

So yes, I keep trying to share, I may miss the mark, I may be rejected, I may not even have an audience, of those to minister to.  But I will use what God has given me, here, even to write, and I will pray, God guide those to me, who I can help.  

I will not dismiss, nor reject, nor be mean to someone, because I have an agenda.  But because Gods agenda is far greater then anything I could even consider.  I will continue to shine, my light for Christ.  As He commanded, and I will try to do it in love.  

Thats the best I can offer He who gave His best for me.  

Blessings, and love,

DONT HAVE AN ABORTION AND DON’T DISCARD YOUR BABY LIKE TRASH ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


God, mom and dad gave me life and loved me...enough....

God, mom and dad gave me life and loved me…enough….

So, I am writing this, in obedience to God.  I don’t have a personal reason, to acknowledge this, or to bring it up.  I could show a picture of a baby here, but I think to see, and understand, we need to see a symbolic picture of parents.  Parents that love.  These are my dear parents.  Now dead, but forever in my heart.  

And most certainly, I do not want to make anybody feel bad, who has had an abortion, because the truth of the matter, is women who do have abortions, will always remember the guilt of this sin.  Even if they have asked God to forgive them.  I have talked to a few, and they say that is their greatest regret.

But I do write it, because I see the problem.  I see, how many women, have no hope, financially, or even morally sometimes to make the right decision. But no one tells them what is truly right.  So I will, maybe by you reading this, you will change your mind.  

The option is there, to have an abortion.  And sadly, now we see in our country, the great United States, that abortion has taken a very ugly twist, where we see baby human parts are being harvested, and sold.  It is despicable, what has happened to our country.  And that there is no moral sense of injustice for these innocent babies.   That are killed.  What has happened to people? When you see someone mourn a lion, but they do not mourn the thousands of babies killed yearly?

I know Gods heart in this.  I know Him.  I know how He loves each and every one of us.  I know, that He has a plan, according to scripture.  That He can change things.  That if we loved, one another, we would see more of His presence, in our lives.  I know He cares, for each one of us.  But we always have our part.  And this is what is missing from the equation.  We have turned into a disposable society.  Don’t like it?  Throw it away?  Dispose of it…..

Maybe I understand, because I was not exactly wanted.  My mother, did not want any more children.  She had three children from a previous marriage.  She did not want any more children.  She met my father, they married.  He wanted a child.  But she had taken precautions after her first marriage, and got her tubes tied.  To avoid pregnancy.  My father, prayed.  He bowed down, mama told me, at the foot of their bed, and cried to God for me.  God answered his prayer.  I was conceived.  Mama  could have had an abortion.  But she did not.  She did the right thing, and for that I am grateful.  But she had the fear of God, though life did not turn out exactly with happiness, for her, she wanted to please God.  

When she went to her doctors and told them that she had conceived me, they could not believe it.  But she knew, as I now know, as my dad did.  God answers prayers.  I am a miracle, and all babies are miracles.

You know sometimes, we don’t want to do something.  This feels odd in a way for me to write this.  I did not want to write it.  Yet, I know Gods voice.  And I know we have to obey Him.  So I write this.  Who knows who it will reach?

But obedient I tell you, if you are pregnant, don’t kill your baby.  Be obedient to God. Don’t take that life away.  God made it, so mothers would nurture and care for their babies.  You have that instinct within you, even if you do not see it.  You see, you just have to obey God in this.  For his commandment says….THOU SHALT NOT KILL.  Exodus 20:13.  Read it yourself from a good King James bible.

There is only one who wants to see you destroy your own child, and that is the devil.

Abortion was conceived, from an evil woman, who I will not even mention her name, but she was a racist.  She wanted to eliminate any other race, that was not pure, in her eyes.  She proclaimed, “Let them kill their own, and in this way, they will do the job, of exterminating themselves.”  

Have you ever noticed, it is motivated toward the poor, the broken to do this barbaric act?    But friends we need to know God loves us all, and He is not a respecter of persons.

Friends, we need to teach our women to love each other, and tell each other there is hope.  I know many feel like their is no hope.  But there always is with God.  One cannot become a part of the problem, which is a curse.  

It breaks my heart to see so many women, not know their potential, as it does God.  I myself, I have struggled, but I always turn back to God.  Life is not easy.  But one can survive, and not only that, but thrive.

Fathers, need to get involved, and not be a part of the problem.  So you get a girl pregnant?  Don’t abandon her.  Don’t abandon your child.  That is your flesh and blood.  

Parents or future grand parents, support your child.  Be there for that girl.  Your daughter.  Even if she makes a mistake and gets pregnant.  Be there for her support and love your future grand baby.  You see that is also your flesh and blood.  Your lineage, could live on in that child.  It is a seed from generation to generation.  

The only one who has the right to take life, is God.  He gives it, and he can take it.  That baby is not your right to kill.  Its life was meant for a purpose.  As your life is.  

Who knows…. as my friend Thena mentioned yesterday, how many lives have been destroyed, with the potential to find maybe the cure to cancer, discover something great, that will happen for the good of mankind.  

You see, we all have gifts and callings, that we can offer, to God and the world.  But yes, it is the enemies plan to destroy this plan of God.  Why be a part of it, and destroy your babies life, and yes yours, by becoming a part of this sin?  And it is sin.  

And lastly, maybe you have read this, and I have not persuaded you so far.  Or rather God has not persuaded you.  Then please, for the sake of any decency you can muster up.  If you truly do not want your child, if you do not want to love it, enough to raise it…..  

Then please do not just throw it away.  Yesterday, in the news, I read a woman, had a baby, took it, wrapped it in a blanket, and put it in a stroller in front of a building.  And just left it there.  The baby still had the umbilical cord wrapped up.  But it could have died from the heat.  

There are many places that are safe places to leave your child.  A firestation, a police station, a hospital, in the church…these are places where you can take it, and there no questions are asked.  

Someone does want to love your baby.  There are many women, who cannot have babies, yet they want to love a child.  Perhaps yours…

Please have mercy, on your child.  Please have mercy on your own soul.  Please trust God, to change the circumstances.  

By eliminating that child, you are eliminating love.  You would eliminate Love that could heal your own brokenness.  Your own broken heart.  There is always a way with God.  

Friend, I do not know you.  I don’t know what your struggle has been.  But I have had my own sorrow, my own broken dreams, and I have failed in so many ways.  Yet I am victorious.  Yet, I am a winner.  I am a survivor.  I am a voice….for the Lord.  

And all I know, is that no matter how bad it may look or seem, there is always a way with God.  You may not even believe in God.  But He believes in you, and that baby.  I just recommend search for God.  Pray, get a good King James bible, and this is important for holiness, and the anointing.  Read it, learn who God is, let Him speak to you from that bible.  

God will guide you, but you have your part.  Be obedient, take care of that baby.  Leave the rest to God.  He will not let you down.  I know.  If you need prayer, write to me.  

I do hope they defund this place of torture, where the plan is to kill babies.  And takes away a mothers and yes a fathers parenthood.   No one has that right to take a fathers child away either.

May America see the sin of this, and do that which is right in the sight of God.

Would you please be obedient to God and share this?  Maybe you can share it, and a woman in trouble, contemplating this will see it and change her mind?  Please save a life….

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

AS THOU KNOWEST NOT WHAT IS THE WAY OF THE SPIRIT, NOR HOW THE BONES DO GROW IN THE WOMB OF HER THAT IS WITH CHILD:  EVEN SO THOU KNOWEST NOT THE WORKS OF GOD WHO MAKETH ALL.  Ecclesisastes 11:5.

BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE BELLY I KNEW THEE:  AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE WOMB I SANCTIFIED THEE, AND I ORDAINED THEE A PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.  JEREMIAH 1:5.  

THUS SAITH THE LORD, THY REDEEMER, AND HE THAT FORMED THEE FROM THE WOMB, I AM THE LORD THAT MAKETH ALL THINGS; THAT STRETCHETH FORTH THE HEAVENS ALONE; THAT SPREADETH ABROAD THE EARTH BY MYSELF; Isaiah 44:24.

AND HE WILL LOVE THEE, AND BLESS THEE, AND MULTIPLY THEE:  HE WILL ALSO BLESS THE FRUIT OF THY WOMB, AND THE FRUIT OF THY LAND, THY CORN, AND THY WINE, AND THINE OIL, THE INCREASE OF THY KINE, AND THE FLOCKS OF THY SHEEP, IN THE LAND WHICH HE SWARE UNTO THY FATHERS TO GIVE THEE.  

Deuteronomy 7:17.  

The Lord showed me these scriptures today, and in obedience sharing them.  God knows….

The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand. Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech. Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins. (Isaiah 32:4-11 KJV)

It is difficult for me to write this.  But I don’t know what else to do.  I have prayed about this very much, on and off for the past couple of years, and I feel like I am drowning.  I am drowning because I don’t know what to do.  

But I just want to ask…..If you saw someone drowning wouldn’t you try and help them?  I would.  This is why I write.  To help someone.  

Twice, I have felt the prompting to write this, and because of that I feel like it is God prompting me to ask for help.  I don’t want to have pride, concerning this.  But humbly, I have to admit in truth, that I don’t know how to go about publishing my book in the market, distributing it, networking, and just tooting my horn or asking for help.  So that is why it is hard.  

I know what I have written in these two books, are self-help books, to help people in their faith, and to break curses.  I know how to write.  This is my gift, but I admit, in other matters of this.  I don’t know what to do.  

I have tried as much as I can on my own, to “self-publish” these books.  And I have tried to take it further by getting the books listed on my blog, and on Smash words, where some could find them, and download them electronically.  

I have been writing for years.  In service to God, and to others.  I know what I write is truth.  I know what I write is based on the King James Bible.  I know my Bible.  I know, from my own trial and error, what works, and what does not.  Concerning God.  To change our characters, to change our souls.  To please God.

I know what I write, can offer someone hope, and yes truth.  Which to be honest is so missing from so many.  I am not trying to put myself in a position, where I am saying I know better then someone else.  But when I see, false prophets, liars, and people who twist Gods word, say for example concerning the “prosperity message.” I do get sad, that I cannot find my way.  

Well, I am asking Gods people to help me.  I am asking for help.  I don’t understand the publishing world.  I don’t have the connections.  I don’t know where to go from here, but to ask humbly please help me.  

I have in the past asked for help.  To publishers, to literary agents, to even other ministries, and I have been rejected over and over again.  Throughout the years…That maybe this is why it is hard for me to ask.  But I do ask.  

Please help me so God can get glorified.  Help me, so others can learn truth.  Help me, because I need a miracle.  If anything pray for the glory of God to be revealed, so I can get the help to give God glory.  So others can be helped.  

I am just sending out this SOS….and praying someone knows someone, or has the ability, and knowledge and maybe even financial resources to help me.  

But I know I cannot do this on my own.  I take what God gives me, in my writings, and even small quotes, and I write them, and pray it helps someone. Daily I write.  I breathe and write, because if I do not write.  I would not be fulfilled.  And this is who I am in Christ.

I promote the King James bible, and I also know in my writings how important this Holy word of God is, to bring truth.  I have been obedient.  

I am not giving up, but I don’t know what to do, so I ask for help.  This whole process has been so overwhelming.  But I do take direction from God, and this is what I feel like He is telling me to do.  To ask for help.

God bless you for taking the time out of your day to read this, and if anything to share it to someone who may know how to help me.  For the glory of God.  

Please respond to me, if you feel led at prayerofgod@comcast.net  My photo above has the links to the books electronically.  You can see more information on http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

The titles of both of my books are:  

HOW TO HAVE FAITH.  

BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST.  

I believe, and I do ask in prayer.  I ask in the beautiful name of our Lord and savior.  Jesus Christ.  This is why I can ask you.  

Maybe you need an answer, or maybe you know someone who needs an answer, and I can help them.  Because you or they may be drowning.  I can help them by showing them who Christ is.

In fact, I know I can.  Because of who Christ is to me.  And what HE has done in my life.

PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS, LOOK AT MY MANY POSTS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME TO WRITE.  I CAN OFFER HOPE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING TO THOSE WHO NEED ANSWERS FROM GOD.   

AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE.  MATTHEW 21:22

Thank you, in Service to Christ and His sheep, His people, to God be the glory.

Wisdom, where does it come from?  The scriptures tell us that the fear of God, is the beginning of knowledge.  But where do we learn knowledge to be wise?  By first fearing God.

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE: BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION.  Proverbs 1:7.

I probably cannot even count the conversations I have had with people, who have denied the fear of God.  Where they have argued, that they do not fear God, and they probably think I am nuts.  But I don’t care.  

I know, it is a good thing, a healthy thing to fear God.  I attribute it to keeping me out of trouble.

Yet, as I contemplate this, I know as a writer, I know why I embrace the fear of God.  For I am a truth seeker, and as a truth seeker I must seek His truth, not mine, not mans, not other preachers, not the worlds…..

Because God is mighty, powerful, and it is all established according to His ways, His truth, His view point.  Not mine, or anyone else.  I must seek His will to please Him.  

I admit, I have the fear of God, because I know my life, is in His hands.  My soul is also in His hands, and He has the right and power to let me into heaven, and I do not want any consequences of hell.

BUT I WILL FOREWARN YOU WHOM YE SHALL FEAR: FEAR HIM, WHICH AFTER HE HATH KILLED HATH POWER TO CAST INTO HELL: YEA, I SAY UNTO YOU, FEAR HIM.  Luke 12:5

So I want His protection.  At a moments notice, for anything.  I don’t want to give the enemy a legal right to attack.  More then anything I do not want to displease God.  So, I trust the fear of God, to be my guard.  It can make a difference at a moments notice.  And I do rely on God, for His promises.  But I must not distort, or change, or add to His truth, so this is why I am afraid of God, in anything I do for God.  

I do not hear or see the fear of God taught, by anyone.  And that makes me sad.  Because many in the body of Christ need to know it, to understand it.  But where do we learn?  But from God Himself.  

So what do I do?  I obey even in my writing…..but what is based on?  My thoughts, or Gods thoughts?  It must be Gods thoughts!  

So, I must seek a Holy, and true word, a word that has not been compromised, changed, added to, or deleted.  The purest of words at least that is available in this time and place.  I choose a King James Holy word, for it has been preserved for 400 years.  I do not seek other versions for understanding of words, for I know the Holy spirit is my teacher.  I know the Holy spirit will bring understanding.  

KNOWING THIS FIRST, THAT NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.  II PETER 1:20

I have always wondered why people use other Bible versions, when the context has been changed, how can you search for a word in a Bible, if the word has been changed, so the content is changed.  Thereby corrupting it.

Well, as I write this though, I do want to emphasize about fearing God, and this is why I won’t use another Bible.  Because I have seen other pastors, and I have listened to them, and many who I will not name, they are lost.  Themselves, the blind, leading the blind.  

AND 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

I know, as a writer, of Gods word, I have to build a strong foundation.   Because I do not want to be blind, or lead anyone else deceptively.  If not for a Holy word. Who would believe me?  Without it?  No one.  I don’t have a charming personality, or an agenda, that is anything but to serve God.  I have never been popular.  I have been in so many fights in my life, to survive, that I know, I am nothing without God.  Sounds a little harsh, I know, but it is true in my example.  

So, the foundation I always need, to back me up is Gods Holy word.  

But I know this, because I have watched others.  

I have learned, because I have seen discrepancies in many ministries, that I need to know the truth.  I get a check in my spirit, when I hear something that takes away from the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I get a check, when people compromise truth.  Or even suggest there is not a difference in doctrine, between other religions.  I get a check in my spirit, to go to Gods word.  For it is Holy.

I don’t take what other people say, as truth.  Not till I confirm it by the word they share, that again is Holy King James word, or my own research in the scriptures.  If it is not King James word, I am sorry, but I dismiss it, because again I know scripture has been added, changed, or deleted.  Even though others have the best intention, I don’t hold it against them, but I don’t count on their truth, as truth.    

I get that check as well, because even though, I am low on the totem pole so to speak, and there are great and wonderful servants of the Lord, and I know God is not a respecter of persons, but I get that check in the fear of God, because I know many do look to me, and learn from me.  

And what does it say, if any of us, do not present the truth of the gospel, and mislead others?  Yes it is a great responsibility, no matter who we are, or where we are on the vine with Christ.  We have to be careful, what we teach, and what we say, for lives can be impacted.  

So I take it with great responsibility, as an honor, in anything I do for the Kingdom, of God.  It is His Kingdom, not mine, so this humbles me, to be ever so careful and not distort His truth.  

But in this fear again, I have, that scares me as a servant, I realize I have a great responsibility to write truth.  Gods truth.  It scares me, when I hear or read other pastors who have compromised it, and though I do not want to name them, or judge them, I judge the fruit of the deception that comes when Gods holy truth has not been presented.  

It brings curses.  It brings deception.  It brings half truth, half lies, that I want no part of.  For I see the devils ugly hand in it.  I don’t want to know any more about the devil, but what God has shown me.  In His Holy word.  And His word, has shown me, the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  

And I want to know what Christ said, what God the father said, what the Holy Spirit reveals to me.  But I know when God does show me, it is to teach me, correct me, and instruct me, as to what His ways are.  And to show me, that He comes to give life, and life abundantly.  

THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY:  I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  John 10:10  

The enemy does want to steal truth from your eyes, your heart, so you will not grow.  Do you notice the scripture says “might” have it more abundantly?  If you do not get pure word, you are taking a chance, to get it right.  You might not, but you might if you study Gods word, and apply it correctly.  Because it will prosper in that thing, and not return void!  

SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE, AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERETO I SENT IT.  ISAIAH 55:11

But yes, I am afraid.  For someday, I will stand before God, I pray, even now, in repentance, and humbleness,  if I have said or done anything that God will correct me, before I stand before Him.  And I ask for His mercy.  For I am not perfect.

But I take great consideration to have fear of God.  To want to do it right, to be totally focused on God, and not anybody else.  It makes me think, especially as I see how deception can come when any of us, only think of what man says, and not God.  

Friend, I seriously recommend, get a good King James Bible, and do your own research.  It will make a difference.  I pray, just to please God.  

I know many will just dismiss me or my thoughts, even here, but please don’t dismiss God.  Please don’t whoever you are, reading this.  As a warning I tell you this in love, but I tell you this as well, in fear of God, that God is not mocked.  

BE NOT DECEIVED: GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7.  

We reap what we sow.  Let us sow His truth, and receive it as well.  He sacrificed His life for us, to be free.  And by His stripes we are healed, physically and yes our souls. Read Isaiah 53:5 from a King James.  

Let us Honor Him with His truth.  

Let us not get entangled in any deception that takes away from His Holy truth.  I plead with you, to understand the fear of God.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

The spirit of anger.  It can be caught like a cold, and you may not even know you have it.  It can erupt at any time, and cause total devastation, and not only hurt you, but hurt others.

Its like a volcano, brewing, steaming, and if not watched, nipped, and put to rest, it can destroy lives.  

I write about it, because you know sometimes, we don’t really know what we are capable of, when angry.  I write about it, because I have seen it hurt myself, and others, and I lived in a household as I grew up, where anger was evident now and then.  

This post is not to criticize anyone, or make anyone feel bad, but to be honest, I just sense how the enemy of God, does use anger, and provokes people to do things, they would never want to do, or to have done to them.  Yet, many do.

They give into anger.  And I want to talk about it, as a spirit, because I truly believe there are many other different spirits, that we can be mindful of, and this particular one, is meant to destroy.  

We always have to know where things come froem, to get to the root of something.  And the enemy of God, the devil, is known to kill, steal, and destroy.  He wants to steal the destiny God has for you, and destroy that purpose, and anger can be used to do that.  Our jails are filled with angry people.  

But if one can know in advance, recognize it, as a spirit, and take God at His word, I believe, they can stop that anger, they can curve it, into energy, as a spirit, to do good things.  

Now mind you, righteous indignation, that may be considered anger, can benefit some, and can bring a purpose for a wrong doing.  But you have to see, and know what God says about everything, and we are warned to be careful not to be angry.

You are the one who has to rule this spirit.  

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.  Proverbs 16:32.  KJV. 

Have you ever gotten angry, at someone right before bedtime, and not resolved a situation?  We are told, to not let the sun set on our anger.  This scripture tells us that, and I also believe it affects our emotional, and physical health.  

It is best if we can make peace with whoever has angered us, and not to give into that anger, in our time of rest.  

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.  Ephesians 4:26 KJV.

We are told not to make friends with angry people.  Look, we all have moments where we want to vent, and its good to have a friend who understands.  But something about anger, it is contagious, and if you value your peace of mind, be aware of angry people, and steer away from them.  They can influence you, and also get you in trouble.  

Sometimes, though its hard, you don’t know this that it affects you, but you see the fruit, and some people need to know especially that anger is not a fruit of the spirit.  Which I recommend you look up yourself.  In a good King James bible.  As Christians we are to follow this sense of instruction, in the fruit of the spirit, for our own spirits to bear fruit in Christ.    

But here in this scripture is the warning:

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go.  Proverbs 22:24.  

Ever noticed that an angry person, instigates, or tries to cause problems as well?

An angry man stirreth up strife, and a curious man aboundeth in transgression.  Proverbs 29:22.

As Christians we are called to have the spirit of Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to love one another, and to have self-control.  

Yes, even Christ got angry, and I admire, His anger when He overthrew the tables at the temple.  For He saw, how this place was used to make money, and not for prayer.  And yes, one could say it was extreme.  But no one got hurt, and no one, was a target of His anger.  

Even when He was in the garden and the disciple cut the ear off of the soldier, He used His healing authority, and power to restore the soldiers ear.  He could have had angels at His calling, He could have done angry things, in that moment, but our God is so much greater then that.  So we are called to have self-control.  We are called to love, we are called, to not give into anger.    

The following scripture, also talks about how we are to have self-control:

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God, not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.  Titus 1:7.  

I want to encourage you, perhaps, you have just come across this post, by curiosity, or it is a problem, God can turn it around.  

He can give you peace, in situations, that normally would bring anger out in you.  But you have to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  If you have not given Christ your heart, now would be a great time, to make it right with Christ.  Give Him your anger, and repent, give your heart to Him.  Tell Him, to change your heart.    

You have to let His spirit, rule your heart, you have to repent.  You have to be aware of this spirit, and make the attempt to make it right.  It can be done, I know.  Behaviors, that can bring curses, can be changed by Christ.  I understand this spirit of anger, but I myself had to bring it to Christ, to change me and He has.    

I write about it in my book.  Feel free to check out the link, in the photo above and I pray, God bless you, if you have anger.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7. 

Blessings, and love in Christ,   Elena Ramirez
