Think again!  Be warned, this is not going to be a feel good message, that tickles your ears, or sugar coats truth.  To just let you go on your way.  Nope this message, my post today, my thoughts, that I submit to God, will not do this, but I pray, that will open your eyes to truth, for a real spiritual revival and understanding.

Because none of us are entitled to feel the way we do.  How dare any of us, think we are entitled.  Because it then gives you permission, to do what is wrong.  But many do.  And many do, not having the fear of God.  Or a sense of guidance from God, and so everything they think or do, without God, turns into pride, and they think they are entitled.

Entitled, to be angry, entitled to hate.  Entitled, to do what they want, when they want it.  To just take it.  Entitled, to disobey Gods truth, and choose what they want. Entitled to hurt others, with no parameters.  And even entitled to deny God!  The worst….

And this is just scratching the service.

Because even though God gives us the choice in emotions, or thoughts, to choose from.  The truth is we do not know without Gods instruction, how to see that we are not entitled.  Lets use a couple of examples forgiving, and fear, to make the point.

You see, we are called to forgive.  We are called to walk in love.  We are called, to first and foremost, love the Lord with all our hearts, and souls, and minds, and obey.  That love should be there.  

But it is not there, when you don’t forgive.  When you choose, to be angry, because someone hurt you.  So you feel “entitled” to keep those bitter ugly feelings, because you were hurt.  Well hello….we all are hurt, at some point or another.

But it is what you do with that emotion, that feeling, that can come straight from hell, by either obeying God, or disobeying Him.  If you do love God, with that commandment, you give Him the hurt, because lets be honest, He was hurt the most, by going to the cross for all of our sins.  But you give Him this love, this pain, this sorrow, whatever it is, and you forgive, because this is what He did, for you, and for me.

Entitlement, owning what you feel, can sadly, be misrepresented, to deceive you.  How can any of us, truly understand, the spiritual implications though, unless we know Gods ways?  And He tells us, our ways, are not His ways.  But we are also told in scripture, we can have the mind of Christ.  Look it up, as well in a King James bible.

But we have to reject this sense of entitlement and to totally bring it to the obedience of the cross.  

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST; II CORINTHIANS 10:5.

Obedience is the only true sense of entitlement, to trust God, to change us.  But, if we go on, with humanistic, thoughts, with no foundation in Christ, we are being deceived.  Because entitlement, can cause you or me, to walk in pride.  Pride that thinks its your accomplishment, or your right, so it puffs up your head so big, you forget to be humble.  You forget to extend mercy to someone else, to forgive.  To even be kind…

And lets just be honest.  God hates pride.  He will not bless pride.  So you think your entitled to be prideful?  Think again…

Now lets talk about fear, for a sense, because many times, we have fear.  And something has also caused us to be timid, or to be afraid.  And I don’t dispute that we can feel that.  Sometimes it is our gut instinct.  But what I am saying, is God in His word, for an example, has told us in II Timothy 1:7.  He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.  I am paraphrasing this, but look it up from a King James….

There is that thought of a sound mind, again, and that comes from Christ.  But you may think you are entitled to go around every day, afraid, of every little thing, and mess your head up daily, and speak fearful things, because you don’t know God, can take care of it.  So you torture yourself, in your sense of entitlement, and you torture others with this fear….

God have mercy, that you see this.  How can you have faith, unless you give God that fear, so you can have faith?

We have to learn, how to harness, anything we feel, and see, very carefully where we go wrong.  

BUT GOD LED THE PEOPLE ABOUT, THROUGH THE WAY OF THE WILDERNESS OF THE RED SEA:  AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WENT UP HARNESSED OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.  Exodus 13:18.

We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  We all make mistakes.  But if we continually make mistakes over, and over again, we do not learn.  Not only will we come short, but we will totally miss the plan, God has for us.

What I am trying, by the grace of God for you to see, and for myself as well.  We really are not entitled to anything, without Gods mercy.  Without His permission.  Without His approval.  Without the life, He gives us.  He is so gracious.  He gives us a choice.  It has always been a choice, since the beginning of time, even with Adam and Eve.  But we reap what we sow.  These are principles He has established.  Laws of Gods Kingdom.  So we have to see it now.  And then sometimes, we run out of time.  There are no more chances.  There are no more extensions of this grace and mercy.  

THEREFORE TURN THOU TO THY GOD: KEEP MERCY AND JUDGMENT, AND WAIT ON THY GOD CONTINUALLY.  HOSEA 12:6.

I am trying with all my might, to just find my way myself.  But I know, that Christ is that way.  He is the truth, and life.  JOHN 14:6.

I can look back, and I can see, how I have made my own mistakes.  Even sins….By assuming, and thinking I am entitled to feel what I feel, and do what I wanted to do, and it led straight right to hell on earth.

Folks, even in the Bibles we choose.  We are not entitled to disobey God in this.  Not when the King James has been established, to be holy and anointed, how dare any of us, use something that would be corrupted, or changed.  When the warnings have been there, do not change, add, or delete His Holy word.  If Revelation 22:18-19 does not warn us enough, that salvation could be lost, or our names removed from the book of life, what is it going to take to lose that sense of entitlement that your salvation is secure?  Nothing is worth losing our souls over.  For hell is eternal.

And lets talk about entitlement concerning your soul.  Do you think it is secure?  So you sin, and do not repent?  Think again.  Don’t play with your salvation, because you accepted Christ, as Lord and savior, but returned to sin.  You are not entitled!  God is not mocked, and that fear of God should kick in, because you are in eternal danger.  

And to be blunt, you will be entitled for God to judge you and send you straight to hell, if you do not take Him at His Holy word! Thats just the way it is.  He is God!  

But heaven be yours by what He did, in making Him your Lord and savior, and that is an entitlement, He has promised.  But that is only gained by Christ.

And I think though, that if we become aware of this and lose that sense of entitlement, we have, that is not His ways, even in what we feel, and take it to the obedience of Christ, and take it to search for God, we can find our way, His way.  For Christ is that way.

I told you this was not going to be a feel good message.  But it can help you, I know it.  But you or me, we are not entitled, to anything.  Without God, we are lost.  And how dare any of us, think we are owed anything, but to love one another.  And love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds.

What a waste, if we think we are entitled.  And worse yet, to the one who demands to be served, because you feel entitled.  Open your eyes, your heart, your soul.  Quit stealing, what does not belong to you.  Even in words.  The only one truly entitled is Christ.  For He without sin, took our sins.

I hope this helps.  Entitlement…..

Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. (‭Matthew‬ ‭18‬:‭23-35‬ KJV)

Why do I ask this question?

Because I have learned, and in fact just recently, there are traps. And traps, I refuse to fall in on my own, and when I say this….

I say yes, there are discrepancies in the body of Christ, there are liars, there are people, who use the gospel for monetary reasons only. They don’t care, they feed you a line of crap, and they expect you to buy it.  They are called wolves in sheeps clothing, and they deceive.  We are warned about them, and I recognize them by their fruits.  It grieves me, as it grieves God.

But what I have learned, is I do not have to name them, I do not have to put them, or anybody else down. I do not have to put anybody down, call them out, as to who they are and make them feel bad, to lift myself up.

There is good and bad in all aspects of life, and for me to make a point, about who they are, and discredit them, would hurt me more. Why?

Because I would look like I am jealous, and when you are blessed of God, you don’t need to be jealous, of anyone. You know who you are in Christ. With or without success, I don’t have to knock someone down…  You see, I am aware that jealousy is a personality character of the enemy the devil.  He was jealous of God, and God kicked him out of heaven.

I am also aware, that the devil is an accuser of the brethren.  Revelation 12:10-11 And 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. And they over came him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.  

I am an overcomer by the blood of Jesus, and God will cast that ugly old devil down, and his followers.

Yet I am obliged by God to speak truth!  I cannot mince words, I do have to stand up and say truth, but I don’t have to put someone down in the process.  To be more specific, I would say, this is what God says.  And I would share scripture.  And I have been known to do that, when I see friends misled by these false prophets.

So I cannot be a hypocrite as well, so far from one side to the other.  In finding my balance. But in that, I can keep my personal opinion in tact, and not put that person down, all I need to do is share Gods word.  Not judging, not being an accuser, just sharing Gods word.

You see I do what I do because I know there is a need. I do it freely!  I write what God puts on my heart.  I have done it for years.  So I have proved to myself it’s not about money.  Though I do try and sell my books, I will not sell out to please people or deceive them with lies.  Not everybody lies who is in ministry.

People need truth, they need their salvation, in Christ. They need compassion, they need love. They need hope. I have been at the bottom of the barrel.

I want to help raise people up in Christ. I want to be an expression of love. Not hate. Just my thought right now.

So what is your motive in putting someone down?  What will it gain you?  Nothing.

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

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

   

   

 

WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO? ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO?

There are thoughts, that tell you, your just fine the way you are. That God is not mad at you, that grace is sufficient. But I always look at subliminal messages, and what they don’t say as well.

You see, these kind of messages, do not challenge you to grow. They do not challenge you, to be the best you can be in Christ. They do not help you, or motivate you to go for the highest prize in Christ. In fact, some of them, make you think once saved always saved. Not if you sin. Without repentance. There goes the lack of fear of God, and we are called to fear God. I am not going to sugar coat this.

They make Christians lazy to be honest. Some of these messages are from high profile ministries, and the body of Christ accepts this. Not knowing the difference.

You need to know the difference!  You need to know what Gods Holy word says.  You cannot leave your salvation, in the ways of religion. Or people, who are apt to sin themselves.  You have to grow, with Christ!

Sin is sin, not just “moral failure.”  It needs to be said, it needs to go to the root of it, and call it for what it is, and let the true blood of Jesus cover it!

And we have so much to do, and to achieve in Christ. Unless a Christian changes His thinking, it will be “stinking thinking.” We are called to have the mind of Christ.

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that He may instruct him?  But we have the mind of Christ.  I Corinthians 2:16.

Yes one moment you accepted Christ, yes, He put clean clothes of righteousness on you, but if you turn around, and put that dirty garment back on, your right where you started. Sin will do that, and many do not talk about sin, but we do need to know it separates us, from God. Thinking has to change. Sin, It can remove or blot out your salvation.

Folks, don’t accept these flaky messages, that do not cause you to grow. Remember we are on a vine, and with Christ we do grow. But without Him we cannot, and He is a holy God. He does not accept sin, He takes it away! But we have to ask.

This is how we get rid of the devil by repenting to God by Jesus Christ!  Because if you do not he has every legal right to be there!  Plead the blood of Jesus and repent!

Even if you thought you did good. Did you know, your righteousness will be forgotten, if you have sinned again without repentance? Did you know, this scripture?

WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE; IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMIT, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT. Ezekiel 33:13.

King James Bible, the only Bible, I use and recommend for pure thoughts, not changed, not corrupted.  

With Love, in Christ my savior, Elena Ramirez

A WORD TO THE ATHEIST, THE AGNOSTIC, AND EVEN THE SLOW BELIEVER ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

I have an urgency in my heart, a great stirring to write this word.  Because for someone, who is reading this, if you do not heed this, your soul, may be doomed for eternity.  It may be too late for you if you disregard this!

There is no way, any of us, can have hope, or be optimistic, for anything, if God is not in the picture.  If God is not the source, to put that hope or optimism in.  There is frankly, no hope.

I don’t know how any one of us, can refuse to acknowledge, and accept a God, who created the heavens and the earth.  Who breathes life, into every living thing.  Who knows every secret, every bit of wisdom, and knowledge.  Who is life itself…..

I don’t know how any one of us can refuse to see He  sent us Jesus Christ, as the way, the truth and life.  No other false god, can do what Christ can!

I don’t know how someone can yes, stupidly, can deny the only one who can make a way, and a miracle when you need one.  

And we all need miracles now, and then.  I don’t care who you are, you don’t leave hope like this to the chances of luck.  There is no such thing.  Either you are blessed or cursed.  This is life!  The way God made it. And He has principles, that either we follow or don’t. But He gives us the choice.

But let me refresh my own memory.  Yes, I was a stupid person at one time. Yes, I went around, in my young adult years, denying God.  Denying who He is, and what He could do.  How arrogant, and yes how stupid I was.

You see, those were the darkest, loneliest, and most frustrating times of my life.  But it was my fault.  For it is a choice.  I had no vision.  I had no direction.  I had no sense of true love.  I had nothing!  I was a miserable failure.  A miserable, human being, who had fallen into sin, and I was practically destroying myself.

Sin separates us from God.  And until we repent, we are doomed.

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.  Isaiah 59:2

When you are young, you think you can do almost anything, and some have so much “pride” that sometimes, you can be so full of yourself, that confidence, is not a problem.  Denial of who God is, in that confidence, is the problem.

I know.  I hit the bottom of the barrel.  I hit hard.  I had no one, or true friends, to help me see my way through.  No love.  Substitutes, cannot be found, in money, drugs, sex, or self.  Only when I cried out to God, who heard my cry, did I begin to find my way.  And I will tell you the truth.  I reaped what I sowed, into my own life.  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked.  Galatians 6:7.  Read it from a King James.

I have walked now with God for over 35 years.  I will not let go.  But, I just have a sense, if I had not denied God even when I did, things would be different.  I reaped my own destruction, by denying God.  But God….yes He is the great restorer, and healer.  But I have my own battle scars to remind me.  How lost I was, and misguided.

I give you this word, maybe you are young, maybe you don’t know better.  Maybe you are old, and do not know better…

But it is better to turn now to God, Atheist, Agnostic, and yes, slow believer.  Its not too late, He can change your life, your circumstances, even save your soul.

Turn to God with all you have.  Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, and here is an important key, repent!

Give Him praise, Glory and Honor.  See who He is.  See His love.  See the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus, that He gave on that cross, for your sins, and yes for mine.  Serve God with all your heart!

Tell others about Jesus, because to tell you the truth, you have no other time but now to do it.  (slow believer) This is your chance, NOW IN YOUR LIFETIME!!!!

Don’t deny Him. Let Him heal you, by His stripes you are healed.  Let Him heal your emotions, your sorrow, your own losses.  Let Him counsel you, and give you direction.  Let Him take your pain and sadness.  Let Him love you, because He does.

So much so, He took the penalty of all of our sin, and on that third day after His death, He even defeated death.  Because He took the keys from the devil, and arose.  This is why Resurrection Sunday is so precious to us as believers.  Also known as Easter.  But it is not a pagan holiday.  It is truth.  And because of this, this is why He is the way, and life!

Don’t bring curses into your own life.  Don’t lose the only hope, you can truly have.  Because the truth of the matter, if you deny God, you accept satan.  This is what God sees, and it is recorded in the book of life, concerning you.

To deny God, it means….You accept the liar, and the thief, who comes to kill steal, and destroy your life.  You accept, the deception, and the misguided sense of who you are.  For you will never truly know your potential, if you deny God.  You will always be lost.  Yes full of yourself, with your arrorant, angry foolish self.  But really full of the devil.  Full of the spirit of lies.  For you are lying to yourself.  Love, that you truly long for, will never be yours.  Because it is not based on God, and God is love.  If you deny God, you deny yourself love.

I am not going to sugar coat this, it is truth, and yes I am a truth seeker.  I want to bless God.  Because the truth of the matter is, there is no hope without God.  There is no optimism for anything to change if you deny God.  You are your own worst enemy if you deny God.

But you can start, even where you are.  You can seek God, you can find Him, truth of the matter is He knows where you are.  But your sins, your denial of Him, has separated Him from you.  You can begin, atheist, agnostic, and slow believer.  You can begin, right now!

But it is up to you.  It is a choice.  Every day it is a choice, but I choose to stay close to my Lord.  Who is that way.  No I don’t have it easy.  But I have full assurance, in my faith, that He is real.  God is real.  And I will never be so stupid to deny Him, when He has proven Himself to me, over and over, and over again.  Maybe not always in the ways I wanted but He is my hope.  He is my savior!  My Lord!  My healer and so much more!  He is my optimism.  And I will never let Him go.

So, to each their own.  It is a choice.  This is not up for debate or argument.  I know, but I plead with you, atheist, agnostic, and even the slow believer…..I plead with you, because your soul is at stake.

Maybe you can share this message, with your friends, or maybe you are ashamed so you will not.  You never want Christ to say that to you.  That you were ashamed of Him.  And He would say, I never knew you.

And if you do not make it right with God NOW!  You may face eternity in hell.  This is the word of the Lord, from my King James Bible, and I know that it is true, and holy, and is truth.  Open a King James bible, to learn the truth.  To receive, the anointing and holiness.  No I don’t recommend any other Bible.  Why?  Because they have been corrupted.  From all the revisions, that have been made. Part holy, part truth, part lie.  No, go for the purity of a word, so your own spirit can be pure.  A coloring book, cannot give you all the truth you need.

So you need faith, you need to see, the truth.

BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM, FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.  HEBREWS 11:6

CONTROLLERS, MANIPULATORS, AND THOSE WHO USE GUILT TACTICS DO NOT MOTIVATE ME! ~ By Christian author – Elena Ramirez

To be honest, guilt tactics, and manipulation, really have not motivated me to do anything.

In fact, I have rebelled from those type of methods. I don’t like controllers, even in a small way. I have learned to be a leader, by following Christ.  Not others.

He is the one I imitate. He is the one, I learn from. Why? Because when He found me broke, practically destroyed by my own self. He soothed me, loved me, and gave me a choice, in love. Follow Him, He said, do not depart from my truth, He said. He put me about His neck, and I fell in love with Him. But, I did take His words to heart…

And I have followed Him, but He did not try to make me feel guilty, or manipulate me, or control me. He just let me see the difference, and I have. So I do not try to do that with others.  Truth is truth.  Either you accept it or you don’t.  But I do not have to debate truth, or try to make anybody do anything.  And if you do not want to see my truth, thats o.k.  I am not offended.  I am that strong in Christ.

But, I want to clarify something. I know, I am to be humble, in the sight of God and people. I am not trying to be something I am not. But, when people, try to manipulate me, or a situation, and I don’t have peace about it, I sense a spirit of controlling. I have discernment.  That gut feeling comes from the Holy Spirit, and I trust that instinct.

I have had people tell me, how to do something, and they had no love. They were bossy, their words were without any courtesy, or kindness.

 I test the spirits.  I know what the Bible says. It tells me to test others.  There is criteria, to true believers, and fruit.  Even in the Bible they use.  So I want a pure word, a true word, a Holy word, so I choose a King James Bible.

 But when people insist on their way, even to communicate.  And when I see that… That is like witch craft. If you see that, and they are trying to control you, that is not love. This is what I mean from this post.

I turn away from that and yes, in Godly rebellion, I turn away. I hope that clarifies this.  Because it is not good to be rebellious, from God, or His truth, that maybe a prophet may bring.  But I am talking about the way someone goes about trying to persuade you, or to see a truth, or to feel something.

Getting mad at you, is not a fruit of the Holy Spirit, if they want to control you.  Rejecting you, or snubbing you.  And here is a big one, they “accuse” you. See Revelation 12:10, from the King James.  They accuse you in front of God.  And where does that come from? That comes from the devil, the deceiver himself.  This is a big, big mistake many Christians do, but they have that controlling spirit that comes out, and that is not of God.  I do not want that snare, to be in bondage, from that, and its like a virus, you can pick it up, in the spirit.

This is one reason, why I have learned, to follow Jesus only.  I do not follow people, because it somehow or another turns into an idol, and that offends God.  So I follow Jesus.  And yes, we all need to know how God feels about loving Him, and then loving one another.

Yes, I will be friends with God’s people.  And yes, I am humble, and I do what I am told with the right authority.  But, people who purposely want to control me, or my actions, or even who I am, I let go, and I walk away from.  For the record, here, I again, reiterate.  I follow only Jesus.  Not people.  And I protect my spirit.

He tells me and warns me by His Holy Spirit.  Just look at the fruit.  Know what God says in His holy word, the King James Bible, and know the difference.  Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts today…

WHEN GOD GIVES YOU AN ASSIGNMENT OF LOVE….


God does give us assignments of love.  It could be anything, that he may test us in, or to validate His word in us.

It could be a mission, God places on your heart, something, that will make you His hands and feet, maybe even His mouth, to speak a word.  But to do something in love.

Helping someone, feeding someone, giving water to someone.  Making your money, work, for His Kingdom.  So you give, from your heart, with love.  An assignment of love, from God, can be anything, and when you are His child, you will not only be tested in this, but you will hear His voice, and know, you have been given an assignment of love.  You know, you have to obey.

God gave me one today.  He gave me an assignment of love.  To walk in love, with someone, who was rude to me.

Did I expect HIS assignment, or even this persons rudeness?  No.  But I know His voice.  And I just felt him say, “let it go”... And my little assignment of love, may not mean anything to anybody but to God, me, and maybe the person, God has assigned me to love.

It may produce fruit, but thats not for me to know really.  I am just called to water the plant, with love.  And most likely, this person, will never acknowledge it.  Or love me in return.  But, thats o.k.  I have come to expect it.

After all I know this persons track record in this.  But I know, that I know, I must do my part in love.   I must love this person, pray for this person, be kind to this person, be cordial to this person, and all out of love.

But today, as I prayed for this person.  I felt peace.  I felt like old wounds did not hurt any more.  Even with other people.  You see, Christ told us, that when we are His children.  We are to love.  We are to forgive.  We are to know, if they hated him, and they did, for they crucified him.  They could do it to us too.  The pharisees, hated Jesus.  They were “religious” people.  And I always test the spirits, to see if they are love…..if they are not.  I wonder if they are a “pharisee” spirit.

Anyway, the reason, I write this, is maybe you can relate….  To anyone, who has been mean to you…From that snobby person in church, or that rude and aloof person, you see, at church, or anywhere, and they totally disregard you.  They don’t talk to you, and if they do, it is condescending, it is patronizing.  You are taking up their space…Yikes.  And excuuuuuuuse me!  Or it could be a family member.  Whoever…again, just forgive, and love, and walk in love.  Let the hurts all go.

This could be any where.  Including your job site, etc.  Well, maybe God is giving you a “Love Assignment” too.

I want to encourage you.  Walk in love, with that person.  It may hurt so very much, because you knew what you got, was not what you deserved.  You see it clearly, you are being snubbed.  Its not your imagination.  They are either jealous of you, and giving place to the devil, in these acts, that are not of love.  But you know.… A person, can pick up on those mean, and hurtful of all vibes. And it hurts, I know.

But we are to imitate our savior, and his example in love.  Protect yourself, with Gods love….and go to Him. And love….

Look at Christ.  Christ loved us so much, that he obeyed God the father, and went to the cross for us.  He took each beating, he took, each stripe, and they nailed my savior on the cross, for our sins.

The devil, thought, it would be a victory, by destroying the son of God.  But what a dummy the devil is.  This was Gods plan, because He gave His son, power, to be resurrected.  So Christ, went to hell, after He was crucified, and on that third day, probably gave the devil, a black eye, and took the keys from hell.  To set us free!  Hallelujah!!! (Giving the devil a black eye, is not scriptural)

But this is scripture, don’t give evil for evil.  Recompense to no man evil for evil.  Provide things honest in the sight of all men.  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, or give place unto wrath for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.  Romans 12:17-19

And I am not advocating giving anyone a black eye literally.  I must especially, make that clear, because some of my friends, can attest, I was a fighter.  And in the natural, before I knew Christ, if someone was mean to me, or a bully, or was just plain mean, I would have given them a piece of my mind, at least…..

But…I am talking about Love, the love of a forgiving and kind Father.  That God is. I am talking about my savior, my friend, my counselor, my provider, and healer, and so much more.  He is love.

Christ did all that for us.  He is the greatest example of love.  And when I think of who I was again, the fighter, the loser, the kid, who missed it….I think of what Christ did for me.  And all I want to do is love.  Because I know, at what a great sacrifice His life was to give to me, to you, to all of us.

I don’t want to leave this world, hating anyone.  Or being wounded, by old pains.  For sometime, I will stand before my creator.  I want to keep my armor on, and quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  And the only way, I can, is by being love, as He is love.  Turning the cheek, the other way, as Christ turned His cheek.

And maybe, because I was a fighter naturally, I know, I have to love supernaturally.  In His love.  I have to be obedient.  So, if this person, and I ever communicate again.  Which I doubt.  But if we do, I will be nice, I will be cordial, I will be forgiving, and kind.  Because God gave me an assignment of love.

I also know, in this assignment.  Whenever, the Lord, brings this person to my mind, I will pray for this person.  If this person needed me, I would be there.  Because I know my assignment.  And I need to say this, as a vow, I will not speak negatively of this person, or undermine this person, and their ability.  Or who they are.  I will not speak against this person, in any way.  Because I know, the Holy spirit hears….

Anyway, God gave me an assignment to love, and I know I have to pass this test of love.  You just know…that you know, you have to be obedient to Love.  God is love.

Just my Thoughts….With love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I love you.  Thank you, for giving me this assignment to love.  Would you please help me to do this.  Cause I also know my past track record.  I need help.  Thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen
