PREVENTING EVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3666.jpgPREVENTING EVIL…. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez
 
We always wonder why evil happens. But I believe with all my being, if we submit to God, resist the enemy, we can be delivered. Remember when Moses put the blood of the Lamb, on the houses, death, left them? Well the same thing happens when we apply the Lamb of God. Jesus. Plead the blood of Jesus always. But we have our part. Be totally submitted to God, be in obedience, resist the enemy and he will flee. God will dispatch angels on your behalf. Trust God, let us pray. May this remind us all to be closer to God, and more faithful in our walk. Psalms 91 was written by Moses, and he knew the importance of pleading the blood.
 
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-16‬ ‭KJV

IF YOU ARE ACCUSED, MISUNDERSTOOD, LIED ABOUT, THEN FIGHT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3505.jpgI believe I have a word for someone.

If you are accused, misunderstood, lied about, then fight.  Yes fight.  Don’t take it sitting down.  Down shut down.  Don’t let the devil have his way.  Don’t lose your courage.  Get your courage, and fight.  Don’t fight dirty, but fight.  Don’t do something you will regret, but with all that is good, all that is Holy, fight.

For you see, there is an enemy, and he does come to kill, steal and destroy.  And he will try and deceive.  Thats his character.  So if you see that characteristic in yourself.  It is time to “submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee.”  This is scriptural look it up in a King James.   But it must only come by being repentant to God.

Are you guilty by association?  Are you keeping company with the devils disciples?  Are you so cowardly, that you accept wrong behavior? That can get you in trouble.

The devil will try and make a lie look like truth.  He will twist something so much, that people will believe it.  He will legally attack you, if you have opened the door to sin.

But if you know better, and this is the key.  If you are in truth, and Gods truth, then fight a good fight of faith.

The KJV scripture tells us, that there is a place in hell for the accuser.  So you better not be doing the accusing, yourself, because you will reap that.  Thats being a false witness.

NOW I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION, AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT.  REVELATION 12:10.  KJV.  

But if you are in the truth, and you have nothing to hide.  Then fight, get that courage.  Yes, ask God for it, and fight.

You see, I am an opened book.  And I have just learned, I don’t play games.  I seek the truth.  I seek answers.  And I am careful.  No, I have not always had this wisdom.  I have not always been in the truth.  I had sins, that hurt me.  And I have reaped that. But, when I got honest with God, when I got honest with myself, and I saw the deception.  I saw how I have lost so much even in my lifetime, I choose nothing but the truth from God.  I totally submit to God, resist the devil, and he must flee.  I fight….

But I repented.  And there is something, I see in people.  That holds them back. They have pride.  That pride, makes them weaker, not stronger.  It takes their courage away.  I don’t have pride.  To be honest, my mom, taught me early, to apologize.  So I learned to apologize to others, and to God.  But pride, will blind you, it will blind others.  And people would rather, let someone believe the worse about them, then fight.  Because that pride will get in the way.

Giving my pride to God to take away that sin, gives me courage.

I thank God He took my pride away.  But what I do have.  Is dignity.  And I have self-respect.  You know you can give that away, by being gracious, as a Christian, but there comes a time, when you have to see who you are in Christ, and fight.  And take it back.

Recently, I did  that, for my own self.  I took back my self respect.  Because you can let people step on you, by being silent.  Silence is not always golden.  Silence can be used to manipulate you, or reject you.  It can be used against you.  But if you are in truth, you don’t have to take that, and you do not have to be silent.

Because you can lose it, if you get off balance.  Get courage.

Courage, to stand up, courage to tell the truth, courage, to fight the good fight, when you are misunderstood, lied about, accused, shows your character.  Shows your integrity.

So many do not know how to fight.  So many do not know how to get courage.  But ask God.  Yes, He can fight our battles.  But He as the example also teaches us and shows us how to fight.  He opens doors, He brings light, He brings truth, but be the vessel that has courage, and fight.

This is why I fight for Gods truth, for the King James bible.  I am tired of seeing people, not know truth.  I am tired of letting the devil deceive.  I have come to a place, in my own walk with Christ, where I see, how sin hurts us more, and more. One tiny sin, that you think is tiny, can poison your spirit.  It can take away your sense of truth, and you will gain pride.  Pride is a poison.

Yet, I know, we all sin, we all come short of His glory.  But I want to be careful in the balance of this.  I extend grace because I see that fault in my own.  Yet, there is that part of me that will not accept a sin, that could be turned into good.  By Christ.  His ways are excellence.  I fight, using Holy truth, from the King James.

And because I see the corruption of false bibles, where there is part truth, part lie, I see how that poisons the true word of God.  There is no anointing, there is no power, or holiness in these false bibles.  So I fight it with other holy KJV scriptures, and truth.

Oh I am accused of being a Pharisee, I am accused of being in a cult, I am accused of being legalistic.  But, I would rather, have Gods truth, and law, as my guide, then to think grace would just cover my sins.  Think again.  I fight, by presenting this truth, over, and over again.  Its wrong, in His eyes, its disobedience, and it deceives us, exactly what the devil wants to do. 

We are tested.  By God Himself.  And when I think of someone like Job.  And I think even how his own friends misunderstood him, and he was judged.  I thank God, in his own way he fought.  He talked to them.

Communication is everything.  People do not use it for truth any more, it seems.  It seems, they would rather just shut down, then fight for something good.  Even in friendship.  If you are misunderstood, speak, but don’t play games.  Don’t try and make something right if its wrong.  You have to take a good look at yourself, in this matter.  And you have to be willing to take it to God.  And let Him help you, and work it out.

But you can.  Communicate, fight, and get the courage, when you see the injustice.

Pray, and more then anything do not be the problem.  Remember, again, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.

But what I am trying to get you to see, no let me rephrase that, what God is trying to get you to see is your heart.  Let others see your heart by truth.  Don’t shut down.  Get some back bone, this is what I mean, when I say fight.  The only way you will truly be free, is by Christ, and His truth sets us free.

Open the book.  Open your heart.  Open yourself to truth.  If you are misunderstood, accused, or lied about, even by circumstances.  Fight.  Fighting does not always mean attacking.  It means, you take what you have in truth, and it means if you truly do love.  If you truly have “heartfelt intentions”  then don’t just sit there, shut down, and let the devil steal whats good from you.

You do not let him steal whats right.  If you don’t try, and make it right, by showing your heart to others.  Then you are giving place to the enemy.  You are not submitting to God,

You only keep the book closed, when…..

You don’t care, and when you don’t care, you open the door to the devil.  Its up to you.  Show some courage.  You might get your self respect back too.

 

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

 

 

WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE DECEIVED BY FALSE WORD AND FALSE PROPHETS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3266.jpgAnd for such a time as this I write it.  Why God has shown me this, is beyond me, but I do want to serve our Lord in truth.  His truth.  Not mans truth, not a publisher who purposely disobeys God in this.  And certainly not in false prophets, who are to me, wolves in sheep’s clothing.

I don’t want nothing to do with that.  And yes, the Lord has been showing me these things.

For a while now, I have tried with all my being, giving scripture, concerning the KJV word.  That these Bible versions, that are out, and very much used, are, an abomination to God.  Yes, an abomination.  He does not accept them.  Because they have disobeyed God by changing the word, and the word is not holy, but compromised.

I have told so many, this, as best as I can to my own ability, but I need the ability of God, so I press in with prayer, and the Holy word, in the King James, as Christ is the word.  (see John 1 from the KJV to see His truth, as to being the word.)  So I don’t just spin my wheels.

It just makes me think, He is holy.  He did not compromise.  Truth.  He spoke it in love, and He was steadfast in that.

I want to be like that.  I have been in a few spiritual battles lately, for this reason, but also because with the recent tragedies, I have seen “false prophets.”  Those that claim they are serving God, yet they cannot serve their fellow person, unless they are publicly shamed.  I have seen these false prophets, take scripture, twist it, change it, compromise it, for a prosperity message.  That tickles others ears, but it is so far, from Gods truth, its obvious.  There is no call, or warning to call those to repent.  To tell them to seek Christ, because we are in end times.  To ensure their salvation.

But obviously not to some, they think these messages are fine.  For some think that their is an anointing in these messages.  They think if it makes you feel good, it is good, and thereby there is no harm in it.  They don’t see the contradictions because it does not line up with Gods holy word.  Yet, the message eludes repentance, or a calling of those to beware, and to seek God for who He is, not what He can give.  They turn God into an ATM.  Its very deceptive, because it does tickle the ears.  It grieves me.  So if it grieves me it has to grieve God.

My thought is this, as it is also KJV scriptural, you know them by their fruit.  Is the message, based on Gods holy, uncompromised Holy KJV word?  Or is it a message, that tickles your ears?  Is it a message, that does not cause you to search for God by also searching yourself, to see where one may fail?  To repent to be humble?  Is it a prosperity message?  That totally disregards Gods truth, and commandments, His law.  Gods ways are excellence.  And He is not mocked.  There was a reason, why Christ turned the tables in the temple.  Do we forget what angers God?

One man, told me, I don’t care, if this prophet, is in the truth of the Bible, or if I even make it to heaven.  I just want to have some hope in today.  Wow, I thought.

For a while now, I have been trying to share this truth.  About the deception in Bibles.  Not to judge anybody, but because we are called to warn one another.  Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the righteous.  When I read that, from my King James.  I am assuming the “righteous” is other Christians.  And these brothers and sisters, who I try to warn, are not listening to what I say about exclusively only using the King James, but they are following false prophets.  Who themselves use false word.  They think its judging….

And I try to stop them, to bring it to their attention, not to judge them, but because I know what Gods word says in these matters, and I have discernment.

But it goes in one ear, and out the other.   Either it is ignored, or they fight.  And they fight with a vengeance, defending that which is wrong.  They get so angry, if you bring it to their attention.  They defend this unrighteousness, and they say you are judging.  They dismiss, Gods holy word, that tells us, to beware of such prophets.  Like Jeremiah 23:16.

THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, HEARKEN NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS THAT PROPHESY UNTO YOU:  THEY MAKE YOU VAIN:  THEY SPEAK A VISION OF THEIR OWN HEART, AND NOT OUT OF OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.  

How specific does God have to get for us to get that?  Do we have to see His wrath, before we open our eyes?  Do we have to see our sins, separate ourselves from Him?  Do we have to lose our blessings, our sense of discernment, because one would follow a prophet, who does that?

Oh how I grieved for that, man who told me that he did not even care if he made it to heaven!  And I shared with him truth, but he did not even acknowledge me.  I told him, get a King James bible.

I have told friends, who buy these books, and support these ministries, and read that crap, but they don’t listen.  One friend, judged me, harshly, rudely, and insulted me, because I told her, I do not read these books, from someone who does not even obey God in this.  This was concerning another false prophet.

Yet I walked in love.  I had another friend, who totally ignored this but felt to even bring it up, one was a “backstabber” if they even said anything about a false prophet.  Really?  Because last time I checked, we are called to warn each other.  We are called to mark those who cause division.  And have nothing to do with them.  We are called to test the spirits.  To try them.

I had another friend, a gentleman, who told me I changed, I used to be so nice.  And I thought, I still am nice.  I just want you to have your blessings, I just want you to get answers to prayer.  I just want you to please God.  And have true discernment.  I have noticed people would rather stop talking to you, and quit being your friend, if you even bring these matters up.  About the KJV or false prophets.

Well oh well, I guess I am out of friends.  Because I would rather please God, then deny His truth.  But thats not true.  I do have some faithful friends.  Loyal friends.  There are only a few that, that stand by me, support me, encourage me, and see my gift and calling.  They share my writings, and they communicate.  Communication is such a wonderful thing.  Because we sharpen each other.

Anyway, concerning those who are not listening….

I have spoken these things, in love, and the love was not returned.  I did not argue, fight, yet, I was ignored.  And told to “agree, to disagree” was what was needed.  Nor an apology was extended. Try telling God that when you ignore His word.  Try telling God that when you need a miracle.  Life is unpredictable, and if we are not doing our part, if we are not obedient to God, we are hypocrites, to say the least.  How do we expect answers to prayer, if we do not obey Him, in just these matters?

If a pastor cannot obey God, even in the word he uses, or she, as a public speaker, why would I want that false anointing on me?  Its part truth, and part lie!  Where is the message for repentance, humbleness?  These false prophets, promote pride.

But if you tell another brother or sister in Christ this, who thinks they are “righteous” (again like Ezekiel 33 says) They get very angry.  They fight you.  My thought is this, I do not want to be defending, or agreeing with someone that disobeys God in these matters.  I don’t want to be on the wrong side.  I would rather walk alone, then to be in the company of someone who insists these false bibles, and false prophets are correct.

Like the saying goes, “you can lead them to water, but you cannot make them drink it.” And I won’t hit someone on the head, with my King James bible, if they want to follow the blind.  Like scripture says, the blind, will lead the blind, and they know not where they go.  You might want to look it up from a KJV.

So this morning, because I know this is on Gods heart, He showed me the following scriptures:

WHY THEN IS THIS PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM SLIDDEN BACK BY PERPETUAL BACKSLIDING?  THEY HOLD FAST DECEIT, THEY REFUSE TO RETURN.  I HEARKENED AND HEARD, THEY SPAKE NOT ARIGHT:  NO MAN REPENTED HIM OF HIS WICKEDNESS, SAYING WHAT HAVE I DONE? EVERY ONE TURNED TO HIS COURSE, AS THE HORSE RUSHETH INTO THE BATTLE.  YEA, THE STORK IN THE HEAVEN KNOWETH HER APPOINTED TIMES; AND THE SWALLOW OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR COMING; BUT MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 8:5-7.  KJV.  

Wow…His people do not know the judgment of the Lord.  They refuse to return.  From this, which God sees as backsliding.  This is what I see, when my friends, or people ignore the warnings I give about false word, or false prophets.  They do not repent, nor do they even acknowledge, the truth in these matters.  They will not apologize, or even be accountable that they are not seeing it clearly.  They would rather turn on the silent treatment.  Well I can be silent too.

That scares me.  In the fear of God.  Not in judging, but in warning them.

I have another friend, who I love dearly.  And we are having a discussion about not giving, and giving.  Why?  Because I don’t like being off balance.  When I cannot give in return.  Some people can do it free and easy.  And some do not have the resources. I believe gifts, should be given in careful consideration, not just to give.  I don’t like the feeling of just taking, but not being able to give equally.  I don’t want to use anybody, nor do I want to feel used.  I think thats a horrible feeling.   But I also feel, that a gift is a spiritual connection, and if someone does not appreciate a gift, for example, and even re-gifts it, thats just sad.  Especially if someone sees you playing with their heart, and you make excuses instead of being accountable.  

Anyway, I don’t know why I feel this way, maybe this is why I serve God, with all I can, because I know I cannot repay Him, for who He is, and what He did on that cross.   For me personally.  His life was a gift.  I don’t want God to feel like I am using Him.

And these false messages, that take part truth do remind me of that, with the prosperity message, like it promotes only using God, and that is so wrong.  To me it is.

But I try and serve Him, so He knows, I am thankful.  I serve Him, in HIS KJV truth, so He knows I am trying to obey Him.  His gift of life is too precious to let it be only about the prosperity message, or to think even His grace is sufficient, when I know, I could make a difference.

But I will try, I will try with all my being.  I will try to repay Him.  I will try to stand in His truth.  I will try…..

To give Love.  I will try to obey, and warn others.  I will try to serve Him, and never be ashamed to be called a Christian.  I just want to be strong in His truth, and nothing else.  I want to be aware of the enemies antics, and avoid the lies.  The deception.  I want nothing to do with it.  I don’t want anything that separates me from God.

But there is something in my heart, that wants to at least, keep His KJV word, in love and obedience.

I just see the difference, between false word, and false prophets, and if I can spare someone, and at least give them that, to know truth, then maybe, just maybe, my life, will bring glory to God.  And maybe just maybe, they can repent, return to God, and see the difference themselves, from false word, and false prophets.  So they can avoid the deception.

Bottom line, if they do not use a KJV they are a false prophet to me.  Sorry if this offends anybody, but thats the way I see it.  I won’t argue about it, or try to convince anybody.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  I know it is a little longer then most of my “Just my Thoughts.”  Feel free to share this, if you agree with my thoughts.  If not, oh well. 

 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

 

 

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

DID NOT HE THAT MADE ME IN THE WOMB MAKE HIM?  AND DID NOT ONE FASHION US IN THE WOMB?

Job 31:15.

I WAS CAST UPON THEE FROM THE WOMB:  THOU ART MY GOD FROM MY MOTHERS BELLY.  Psalm 22:10

FOR THOU HAST POSSESSED MY REINS:  THOU HAST COVERED ME IN MY MOTHERS WOMB.  Psalms 139:13.

LO CHILDREN ARE AN HERITAGE OF THE LORD:  AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB IS HIS REWARD.  Psalms 127:3

THUS SAITH THE LORD THAT MADE THEE, AND FORMED THEE FROM THE WOMB, WHICH WILL HELP THEE:  FEAR NOT, O JACOB MY SERVANT, AND THOU JESURUN WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN.  Isaiah 44:2.

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)
