I write this, from a prompting of God.  Advice.  How I pray you see my heart in this.  To please God.  To help you grow.  And obedient, to God, I want to share some of the things that have helped me, that have given me discernment.  To know the difference between good and evil.  But I always seek the good from God.  For His mercy has been so good to me.  That, mercy has inspired me, and taught me the ways of God.  And this is the principal thing to do, is to seek His wisdom.  As the great Proverbs instruct us.

WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING:  THEREFORE GET WISDOM AND WITH ALL THY GETTING GET UNDERSTANDING.   PROVERBS 4:7

For there are things we may do, and we do not understand always. And we could sin. The thing is never to give the enemy a legal right to attack us.

So we stay close to Jesus. We repent even daily, being humble. Take care dear hearts. Let us seek God. Let us seek His Holy word. That is holy from the King James Bible. That is not corrupted.  So with instruction, please consider this to grow:

1.   Get a good King James Bible.  Read it daily.  But I do recommend a good daily Bible plan.  I read mine from my Bible app.  (Holy Bible app. It is a brown logo, and has lots of capabilities.)

Even if it is just one verse.  Start your day with Gods Holy word.  No ifs’s, buts or compromise in this.  Honor God in this!

I have written many posts on this, and to just get the point, any other bible version is compromised, is no longer holy, or anointed.  The many scriptures attest to this, do not change Gods holy word.  So don’t use anything that has been changed.  So get a King James Bible, that has been established for over 400 years.

2.  Begin writing scriptures, King James Scriptures sharing them on social media, and for reference.  You want to grow.  This imparts truth to the spirit not only for you, but for someone else.  You might be the only Bible someone sees, so you want to inspire someone to know Gods truth as well.  You can reach someone that perhaps, I cannot, or is family, friends, etc.  This is not judging them, this is seeing their fruit, and knowing they need God.  And you could be just that person God is calling to use.  Gods word is a double edged “sword”  You do not want a rubber sword, so this is very IMPORTANT!  Write it, journal it, share it…Memorize it.  

We are to get the holy word of God.  And scripture references it as “sincere” milk.

AS NEWBORN BABES, DESIRE THE SINCERE MILK OF THE WORD, THAT YE MAY GROW THEREBY.  I PETER 2:2.  

You want to start pouring the word of God into your spirit, as milk, so you can grow.  Perhaps you are a baby Christian.  Or just still trying to grow.  But you need to always have the goal of growing.  And the Holy word of God, is the only way to do that with prayer.

So you can start having discernment.  So you can receive understanding, to gain wisdom.  This is the only true way.  Then when able from growth it turns into “Meat.”  So you can bear it.  Let these scriptures minister to you.

AND I BRETHREN, COULD NOT SPEAK UNTO YOU AS UNTO SPIRITUAL, BUT AS UNTO CARNAL, EVEN AS UNTO BABES IN CHRIST.  I HAVE FED YOU WITH MILK,AND NOT WITH MEAT:  FOR HITHERTO YE WERE NOT ABLE TO BEAR IT, NEITHER YET NOW ARE YE ABLE.  I Corinthians 3:2-3.

I have been writing scriptures for years, in all my writings to build a foundation for a thought, and now whenever I need a word, I may not always remember the scripture.  But I remember the “Key” word, of Gods holy word.  And with technology as it is, there is no excuse to copy and paste word, to hear it, to search it.  So I do recommend getting a good Bible app.  And applying it to your computer, or Ipad, etc.    

Then share scripture.  Do it daily.  Don’t get lazy in this.  You want to grow.  To not do this is actually a disservice to yourself.  You will get spiritually weak without Gods Holy word.  It is a hedge of protection.  But to God dear friends this is what He has given us.  This is not a lecture.  But, if we love, God we do every thing we can to understand Him.  

We need this, even to defend ourselves. For we do not fight against flesh and blood, but spiritualities, in high places.

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULES OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.  EPHESIANS 6:12 

For in this world, there is darkness.  We need to bring light.  We need to be able to discern.  We need to be able to understand Gods ways.  No, we cannot understand everything about God, and we never will.  

But we try to please Him, in this life He has given us.  And we are held accountable.  We are warned.  This is not judging anyone.  This is warning with love, to know, according to scripture we will stand before God.  

AND I SAW THE DEAD, SMALL AND GREAT, STAND BEFORE GOD: AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED:  AND ANOTHER BOOK WAS OPENED, WHICH IS THE BOOK OF LIFE:  AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED OUT OF THOSE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.  Revelation 20:12.

3.  So fear God.  This is the most healthiest thing to protect your soul.  And this with great reverence, and yes of fear of God, I plead with you.  To grow.  To remember that fear of God.  We need to change.  We need to grow.  We cannot stay in that place of being passive, and naive.  For we will be judged.  But we must be careful.  We must seek God, and this works.  

I can write on more and more about this.  But there is not enough space on this page, but you must seek wisdom, and God, and this will do it.  With prayer, with a heart to hear from God.

4.  Be careful of Pride.  Be careful of being self righteous.  That righteousness only belongs by what Christ did.  For you and me.  Be Humble, with one another, know again, there are some things we are not anointed to do, or accomplish.  Be careful of people who do not display this.   

5.  Test the spirits, to see if they are love, of Christ.  And again, be careful who you listen to.  If the bible they use is not holy King James Based.  That anointing can be poured down, and you don’t want to receive corrupted word in your spirit.

6.  Do not compromise your walk with Christ.  For money, for pleasures, for sin.  Be ever so careful.  The more we grow in Christ, we get stronger. And this is the goal.  You have authority over your body, and you are called to mortify sin in your body, by Christ.  So it will not have dominion over you.  Remember, those that go after the flesh, will not be Christs.  Read Romans 8 from the King James.  He will deliver you from temptation if you submit to Him.  Plead the blood of Jesus, in everything. I know…..

7.  Put on the armor of God.  I think we may forget about this.  But being submissive to God.  Resisting the enemy, with the armor, can do so much for us.  Read Ephesians 6.  From the King James.  You want victories.  So watch the words you speak as well.  

You have power of life and death in your tongue.  Proverbs 18:21.  Be strong in the Lord.  You are not weak, if you daily take your spiritual food, from God.  This is why I go on and on, about it being King James word, its not junk food.  It brings light and life, and all blessings.  

And as I close, seek the Kingdom of God, and all things will be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33.  Know that Christ is the way the truth, and life.  Read John 14:6.  And only Him. Warn others that this is so important.  Know it in your own heart.  Be careful of religion, and the doctrine that is shared from religion.  BE CAREFUL NOT TO HAVE IDOLS!  GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD!  Be careful not to play with other spiritual entities as well!  This also gets God very jealous.  And there is wrath and curses in these things.  BE CAREFUL!

Let us love one another. Let us try with all our being to please God. Let us remember the sacrifice of Christ with great reverence, to quicken our spirits. So we do not sin, so we do not offend. So we do not lose our blessings. And yes to even restore our hearts, and blessings. Being near Jesus, and knowing Him, and His love, is always the great protector.  He is the great Shepherd.  

But we cannot be disobedient in not wanting to grow.  It is a disservice to God.  For His love is so great.   These are just things I have learned, my friend, as advice to help you grow as a Christian, but I will always direct you to Gods Holy word, the King James Bible.  

For God is love.  And there is no greater love.  Hope this helps.  Much love, praying for you to grow!  For I love you, greatly.  Why?  Because Jesus loves you.

IN MINISTRY? USE THE KING JAMES SCRIPTURES ~ HERES WHY! ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word.  His true word the King James.  Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith....http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  new lower prices.

True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word. His true word the King James. Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith….http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com new lower prices.

Dear Friends, in Christ,

I write this as a letter, but as one of my posts, I want to encourage you, to pray, and write the word of God, from the King James Bible.  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.  Deuteronomy 6:9.

I specify the King James scriptures, because I truly believe the anointing, and holiness, are in these Bible verses.  There are so many compromises to scripture, that the anointing is gone I believe from these other versions.  And I know this is very controversial to some, who are searching for understanding.  But, when you take a scripture, that was originally based on the King James scripture, and convert it, something is lost there, and I do believe it is the holiness, and the anointing.  Remember the King James has been preserved for 400 years.  The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.   Psalm 12:6-7.

Changing it turns into part truth, and part lie.  Remember what God says and in so many scriptures.  TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY: IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  ISAIAH 8:20.  

I do look at that.  And in this time and place of my ministry, I am a truth seeker.  I look at the fruit of ministries, I have grown that much.  I don’t take their word for it.  I take the true word of God, to validate truth.  I see so many compromising truth, that there are many ministries I won’t support, nor will I advocate to others, and in fact, I run from them.

Think of these words, from God, and know the truth….II Timothy 4:2-5  Preach the word be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves, teachers having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and they shall be turned unto fables.  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.  

Now, I just sense, that there are so many out there, who love God, and want to please God, and yet they need the power of scripture to build a foundation.  When you share word, King James scripture, there is an anointing, that speaks for itself.  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:  it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  Isaiah 55:11

One thing people can say about me, is for the most part, whenever I have a thought, I build that thought with a King James scripture.  I give that as a foundation.  Because lets be honest, without it, I would be like any other minister or pastor, who does not.  Look around, and see, that many do not share scripture, and without that, its just meaningless, our thoughts, without a foundation.  This separates us from wolves in sheeps clothing.

And I am not just talking about listing a scripture reference, I am talking about writing the entire verse out.  Doing this, sharpens your sword of truth, as well.  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?  John 5:47.  

If you want to be set apart to do the “true” work of God, you need to do some research.  If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.  I Corinthians 14:37.

You need to get a good concordance, that supports a King James Bible, and take the time, to look the scripture up, to add to your thought, and to build a foundation.  And in this time of technology, get a good King James Bible app.

This is time consuming.  I won’t deny that.  But as Christians, we cannot get lazy, nor passive, if we really do want to make a difference for God.  You need to start writing your thoughts out, with the Holy word of God, to support, your thoughts, that God will give you.  Even if you just search for a scripture, and write it on your social media pages, you are changing the spiritual realm, with Gods holy word.  Don’t let the world dictate to you this is wrong.  Whose report will you believe in?Who hath believed our report?  and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  Isaiah 53:1

As you do that, you are bringing light, to a dark world.  You are bringing truth, and no one can deny the word of God.  No matter what anybody says…the word stands on it’s own, and cannot be shaken.  It is truth.  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:  bind them about thy neck:  write them upon the table of thine heart.  Proverbs 3:3

And if you need answers to prayer, same thing.  Look up a scripture for your need.  Don’t get lazy in this.  For healing, finances, etc.  Studying the word of God, will stick with you, and you may not remember every single word.  But it will kick in.  We are to “pray without ceasing”….I Thessalonians 5:17.  For it is sanctified by the word of God, and prayer.  I Timothy 4:5.  And God will honor his word.

Yes, I do recommend trying to memorize scripture, but when you pray the word of God, when you write it, when you memorize it, you have a foundation for your own needs.  When you write it, the truth is you are sowing the word!  The sower soweth the word.  Mark 4:14.

I am so surprised, myself, that I have done this, but it comes to me, it gives me discernment, it gives me understanding, it connects me with the Holy Spirit, to know truth.  And in this, I give glory and praise to God, for He guides my life.  I have been writing for years, but He taught me that from the beginning.  Stablish Thy word unto Thy servant, who is devoted to Thy fear.  Psalm 119:38.  And yes, I do fear God.  It is health and life….The fear of the Lord tendeth to life:  and he that hath it shall abide satisfed: he shall not be visited with evil.  Proverbs 19:23.

If you want to be different in your ministry, and just as a Christian, start doing this now, and very soon, you will grow.  I do have a faith, and trust in God, that at this point of my life, I see the fruit of it.  I see, that with God all things are possible.  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.  Luke 18;27.

That does so very much for my faith.  I understand my Lord, in so many ways.  And there are things, I may not understand, but I know, that I know God is a holy God, and He has his ways, His principles, His truth.  Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be Holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.  Leviticus 19:2

I wrote in my last post, that yes, God is legalistic.  We have to know His heart in such matters.  Sloppy religion, grace based only on one part of doctrine, will not cut it.  You need the truth, and I hope, this post, of a letter, will encourage you, to write and pray Holy scripture from the King James Bible, so you can grow.  And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and the cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.  Joshua 8:34.

So you can make a difference to a world, that so needs Jesus Christ.  Please remember this and apply it, begin…. Finally my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.  To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.  Philippians 3:1.  

Do it because of your own salvation.  I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord, and thy law is my delight.  Psalm 119:174.

And with this last thought from God, as you finish reading this….remember this promise from God.  For it is a promise.  Let someone see you writing His word.  Let someone, who needs a promise from your own writings, let them see the promise from God.  More then anything, yes anything, let God see you writing His word!

You can make a difference for yourself, and for someone else, as you write and pray the Holy word of God….Share this post, as a start….

THEN SAID THE LORD UNTO ME, THOU HAST WELL SEEN:  FOR I WILL HASTEN MY WORD TO PERFORM IT.  Jeremiah 1: 12.

Much love, in Christ, with His thoughts….Elena Ramirez

DON’T RATIONALIZE MIRACLES GIVE GOD THE GLORY ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


A miracle.  I was praising God, in my home, and listening to worship music.  I looked up, and saw this rainbow on my ceiling.  I could rationalize it, I could look at factors, and say this is why it happened.  But you see, it does not matter, I have faith, and how ever it happened, whatever God used to remind me of His promises, and a rainbow is a sign, from His Holy word.  I take it for what it is worth, and I give God glory.  I never want to take His blessings of glory away from Him, and reason why He sent a miracle.  He did and I want to always give God glory. Thats why I wrote my book  "HOW TO HAVE FAITH" because He has taught me who He is, to have faith, and miracles.  Yes to God be the glory.  Heres the link if you feel led to order my book.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

O GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD; CALL UPON HIS NAME:  MAKE KNOWN HIS DEEDS AMONG THE PEOPLE.  SING UNTO HIM, SING PSALMS UNTO HIM:  TALK YE OF ALL HIS WONDROUS WORKS.  GLORY YE IN HIS HOLY NAME:  LET THE HEART OF THEM REJOICE THAT SEEK THE LORD.  SEEK THE LORD, AND HIS STRENGTH: SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE.  REMEMBER HIS MARVELLOUS WORKS THAT HE HATH DONE; HIS WONDERS, AND THE JUDGEMENTS OF HIS MOUTH.  PSALM 105:1-5  

Look at these scriptures again.  Breathe them in, and do so knowing God has prepared them for you to see, for His glory.  The glory of God.  God gave them to me, as I opened my Bible, after I prayed, to give Him glory in this post.    

I want to write about miracles, and how God deserves glory honor, and praise in everything.  

I want to write about it, because I see people, discount, and yes rationalize God, and the every day miracles, we may encounter.  I speak this to the body of Christ, to awaken them from their slumber of the ways of the world.  I speak this to the unbeliever, who does not believe in God.  Yet has felt His presence. I speak this to the agnostic, and the atheist, who actually serve the devil, by denying God, I speak this….because it needs to be said.  

It needs to be said, because God deserves all glory, honor, and praise in everything!  I will repeat that, God deserves all glory, honor and praise in everything!  Why? because of His goodness.  Because of His mercy, because He is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, He is sovereign, Holy, omniscient.  And so much more!   How can my mind, even comprehend, all that He is?  But He is!  He is the great I AM!  

Yet there is something in me, that is totally submitted, and loving, to want to give Him glory.  To see His name lifted up.  To draw people to Him, to know, what a mighty and good God I serve.  

Yes, that is in me, and with all that I am and I can do, I want to give God glory.  When I share a photo, and I write, glory to God, I see who the majesty of who He is.  I see how He separates light, and writes in the sky, to reveal His power, to change the dawn to the day, from the dusk to the night.  I see His power, and I want to give Him glory.  In the days, He gives me.  

I see His hand in every living creature, and every thing that grows, from the teeniest flower, to a mighty ocean, that has been commanded, to stop at the shores.  I see all of this.  And I do not take it for granted.  For it is in life, that we are given to see, and have a relationship with this mighty God, who created yes all of us.  So, yes, I want to give Him glory.  And so because of this, and in wanting Him to be glorified, dear hearts, I want you to see you also need to give God glory.  I implore you to see, with open hearts, who He is.  

And what He has done for all of us, God loved us so much, that He sent His only begotten son, that whoever would believe in Him, would not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16 (paraphrasing King James version)  

If you have given your heart to Christ, and you truly have ensured your salvation, with our savior Jesus Christ, then you understand, the great sacrifice, it has taken to give you this gift yes of grace.  But it is not to be abused, or taken for granted.  For it came with a great price.  The price of our Lord, Jesus, who willingly gave His life, so you and I could be set free.  He suffered, and yes, by His stripes, we are set free.  

But, and I want you to see this, but if we allow rebellion, or any sin, in our lives we are not free.  Nor are we healed. And dare I even say, really saved? Really healed, and saved….for to deny God, glory, is rebellion.  

And where does rebellion come from? The enemy of God.  That ugly old devil. And if you know his ugly personality, you know, that he was jealous of God, and did not want God to get any glory!  God kicked him out of heaven for that, because he tried to lift himself up.  So, because I know the devil does not want God to have any glory, I need to make sure, in my own way, and as often as I can, I must give God glory.  Now this is really important, because people are not in tune to this.  To give God glory, even some Christians.  

Because the world, we live in has “programmed” us to be rational.  To use our “intellectual” thought process to put down the things of God.  WAKE UP! This is why the enemy is now, using people, to actually deny God.  To not include God in every day living, and even in our institutions.  Being offended, because even a Bible or a cross is in a room, or on display.  So people can ponder on God, no the devil wants to stop God from getting glory, and he uses people, who have no sense to see this is wrong, and evil.  These kind of things come from the devil himself, to try and deny God. Glory…..  

So, when a miracle happens, and they do daily, people are not able to see with faith, and give God glory.  I have even heard Christians discount the miracles of God, and attribute a miracle, to circumstances.  Look, God can use anything, and everything, to make miracles for us, but we must see, it is Him, and give Him glory in it.   Let me give you examples, of miracles.  So you can see with opened spiritual eyes.  

You miss a plane, because you had to search for your keys.  Yet sadly that plane crashed, but you were spared.  Thats a miracle, where you need to thank God, and give Him glory.  You were ill, but God healed you.  You attribute it to modern medicine, but it was God, who gave doctors, wisdom to make that medicine.  God deserves the glory.  There are so many instances, where we avoid things, or may not even see things in the future, or in our own lives, but where we must trust God, for His protection, and deliverance, and give Him glory, and thanks for just every day living.  Knowing His true angels are about, taking care of us, and it is because He commands the principles He has placed, in everything, to work for our good, because He loves us, and we must give Him glory.  

Recently, I saw a miracle where there was a fire, and all around, this cross, everything burned.  Except for the cross.  When I read the comments, from some of the people who saw this, I was amazed, at the lack of respect, and yes, stupidity from some people who put this miracle down, and some would rationalize it, as to why it did not burn.  

Look, we all need God, we all need miracles from time to time, and to discount, the one who can give them to you, God almighty, to even deny Him, is stupid.  There! I said it!  It is stupid, because you don’t even have enough common sense, to know God can make a way, when there was no way.  Jesus is that way, the truth and life.  John 14:6.  In everything.  

Have you ever thought, you did not get an answer to prayer, was because you did not give God glory?  When was the last time you got blessed?  Did you forget to give him glory?     

I have just learned, no matter what the reason may be, for my miracle, and what God used, to give me that miracle, He deserves the glory.  Yes, I am thankful, for what ever He may bring, or use to open my eyes, to see, it is His glory revealed.  I pray, you understand with an open heart, to know, it is time, for you as well to open your mouth, and give God glory.  

Because miracles, happen every day.  You hear it in the news, someone got saved, and avoided something.  Or something changed.  And instead they just say it was luck, or they don’t even give it much thought.  They just ramble on and on, but they don’t see it was God, who did that for them.  To give God glory.  And yet, it was a miracle.  

You see, God created, everything to work, for His glory.  Thats the root of it. 

If you are wise enough, and open your heart, you will be opened to receive greater miracles, from health to wealth, protection, favor, and so much more.  Blessings.  

These are blessings, that we need to give Honor, where honor is due.  Do you have blessings in your life?  Yes you do?  From your family to a job, to whatever you have on your back, it should be to the glory of God!  Remind yourself, to give God glory, for you never want to give place to the devil.  Because His objective is to steal the glory from God.  

This is why I am so adamant to read only a King James Bible.  It is preserved, by God, with an anointing, and a holiness, that has true power.  The devil would love to steal that, so you would not have what you need to get miracles.  

Now, I am about to burst someones bubble, and I want to do it in love.  But there is someone now reading this, and you are so full of yourself, that you do not see, what God has done for you.  You probably have so much success, and wealth, and money, maybe good looks, that you have gotten to a place, where you are so proud, and arrogant, that you don’t see who gave you life, who has ordered your footsteps, to be where you are, and you think every thing you have gotten is by your own accord.  Pride again, another ugly characteristic of the devil.   

In other words, you think you did it to get this success, that you have.  Well let me just inform you, and again in love.  It was God, that made a way….and you should give Him glory.  And that goes for anybody else who may or not be successful, or thinks they are so high and mighty.  It is God!  It is God who gives you breath, and in this life, you should be thankful, and you should give God glory.  

Use what God has given you in every resource, to His glory.  Give, and bless others.  Bless God. Because when it is all said and done with, and we stand before Him, the book of life, and the Lambs book of life, will be opened, to see who gave God glory, and who gave their heart to Christ, and everything we have done is recorded.  That should be enough right there to put fear in all of us, to give God glory?     

All I know, as I conclude.  Is that giving glory to God, should be in all of our hearts.  Don’t rationalize a miracle.  Don’t look at it intellectually, change your heart, your mind, to see God in it, and give Him glory.  Speak it to others…

Even if it just seems to be coincidence.  Or just something small, that just may have touched you, with a miracle, don’t look for the reasons.  Look to the one, who placed the reasons.  For His ways, are not our ways, and He does deserve all glory, honor and praise…

Just my thoughts today, and may your miracles be received to give God glory!

DO YOU HAVE THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT? ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


Christmas can be in your heart with faith....I can help.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Christmas can be in your heart with faith….I can help. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Do you have the Christmas Spirit?….

I do, I have a feeling like I did when I was a child. With an opened heart, I remember just wanting to feel the good things of Christmas. I was anticipating, hopeful, longing, with child like faith…and so wanting to see God send miracles, and angels, and what I remember again, was just longing to see the beauty of the season.  I wanted to go deeper then the Santa Claus, or the Snow man stuff…. I wanted miracles…..

We were poor, and when you don’t have you seem to pray harder, even as a child. You want…..and now, well material things don’t seem to matter that much. Now don’t get me wrong, I like nice things like the next person. But what I long for is to see God glorified.

In such a wonderful beautiful way, that expresses, who God is, and that He in His love, sent His precious son, Jesus Christ. And in a humble stable, with just a star above, wise men, came looking for Him.

I want to be like that. Searching, with all my being, all my heart, for the King of Kings.

Yesterday, I had a conversation with someone here, on FB, and they wanted to say Christmas was pagan, and they even used scripture. Well I pulled out scripture, and I asked this person, why would you want to deny the glory to God, concerning the birth of Christ? It is scriptural. (Luke 2)

The answer they gave was so “legalistic.” You know, I love God’s law, but I never want to twist it, to hurt someone, or to be judging. It scares me…..but I have to tell you, when I celebrate Christmas I celebrate love. The sweetest of love, even if our Lord’s birth was not documented in December.

I celebrate, that this precious King, the son of Almighty God, came, to set me free, and all of us who believe. I don’t celebrate, this paganism, this person, kept insisting on.

And you know, all I can say, today, in this moment, I have hope again. Hope for our world, for each other, for love, to overcome, and to see victories, in this life. Miracles, have just become to me, a way to believe, and I do believe……

May Christmas sweet, and kind, loving, and with the eyes of a Child be a part of yours…..as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus, who came to save us all……It is in my heart, and I just want to say this….

GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN, Luke 2:15….

Yes with all my heart, I want to give God glory, and I want to see His power, shining in all of our lives…..for His glory.  Just my thoughts, Merry Christmas dear hearts, wherever you are….

REINVENTING YOURSELF IN CHRIST


It is the Holy week.  The week, where Christians, remember, Christ, and His sacrifice, by going to the cross, for our sins.  It is also Passover week, the week, God’s people, were freed, from Egypt.

It’s Spring….new beginnings.

All of these things, I mention, are symbolic, to renewal.  To new beginnings.  To life, to re-birth, of things that were dormant, from the winter, and starting a new.  Life.  Life, constantly is changing.

I like to believe, that every day, I learn something new.  It could be something small, or big, but I like to continually grow.  Spiritually, and physically, maintaining health.  So every day, with this thought in mind, I try to replace old negative feelings, with positive hope.  Maybe you feel this as well, and this may bring some perspective to you.

There are times, when one is at the end of who they were, and they have to reinvent themselves.  To, begin again.  Usually something, or someone dies, when this happens.  Or one, may find themselves, at the bottom of the barrel.  But something has to change.  There has to be progress, to see one fulfilled.  Or just to grow, or to hope…..

Christ, is that promise, I hold onto.  And as I reflect on Christ, I remember, He who died for me.  Easter, is about the resurrection.  Christ lived, died on the cross, but was resurrected, after three days.  Then He went to hell, got the keys from the devil, and broke the curse, the final blow, the devil could put upon us, by becoming the curse for us, by taking the sins, upon Himself.

The worlds perception about Easter, is about “dyeing” eggs, and Easter bunnies.  Cute, but wrong.

When I think of Christ, and what He went through, for my sins, for your sins, it was not a pretty picture.  In fact, He was tortured for our sake.  Isaiah 53:5.  But He was wounded for our transgression.  He was bruised, for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace, was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.  

Healed.  What Christ did, for us, means we can be healed, spiritually, and physically.  So many people, find that yes, when they try to reinvent themselves, they want to be healed, from hurts, or rejection, or dead-ends.  Something has to change.

And so, people attempt to reinvent themselves.  It could be from a broken relationship, again, a death, but usually, it is after some type of situation, where, something may even have to change financially.

So, people, tap into their creativity, and if they are smart, they will seek God, in this.  If they are not, they may attempt, to try to find their way, by their abilities.  One could call it their gifts.  Talents…..

There is nothing wrong, with looking within, and using, your attributes, to make a change.  But, when someone, does, it, and they leave God out of the equation, they are to be blunt, they are leaving out the one, true source, who can bring power, to that reinvention, of oneself.  God.

There are so many opinions, and feelings about God.  The creator.  The omniscient one.  (He who knows everything)  And because, He knows everything, He is the one, who can make a life, worthwhile.  He can be that difference, that will bring new life, new hope, new changes, for success, in whatever the goal may be.  So, many people, leave God out of their plans though.  To me that is planning for disaster, when you leave Him out.

When Christ had His last supper, it was in remembrance of Passover.  The disciples, and Christ sat together, and had a meal, that is forever, reminding us, to eat, in remembrance of Him.  Very symbolic, since it was passover.  The connection, in both events, remind me, of new beginnings.  New life.

And as I think of passover….When God led the people out of Egypt, it took approximately 40 years, for them to reach the promised land.  They wandered….In that time of wandering, they had murmured, complained.  They had been disobedient to God.  Moses himself, was appointed by God, to lead the people, out of Egypt, but he was a man, who sometimes, made his own way, made mistakes, and consequently, was not able to go into the promised land, because he disobeyed God.  By hitting the rock, for water, instead of commanding it to come forth.  Yes, the water came, but God, was not pleased.  And for this little thing, to some, maybe even Moses, he was unable to enter into the promised land.  But it was still disobedience, and do we even see how we hurt ourselves, when we disobey God? Whether we think it is big or small.  Disobedience, is disobedience, in the sight of God.

And it just reminds me, how many times, do we think, we know which is right? And, consequently, we do our own thing, and it is not what God intended for us, and so, we find ourselves, perhaps, at the end of something, and we cannot go on, we cannot go further, because symbolically, perhaps, we have been disobedient to God.  Maybe missing, the promised land.

Reinventing oneself….hmmm.  I have been there.  And every day, since, I have met Christ, I have wanted to serve Him.  But sometimes, and I am the first to admit this, I have done it on my own.  Because maybe it did come naturally.  For instance, in my writings.

But I will again, be the first to admit….sometimes, even in my serving of God, I have wandered.  Looking here, and there for a publisher, a job, just grasping, for help.  But, my help comes from the Lord.  And I will wait on God.  He has helped me, maybe sometimes, not the way, I have wanted it, but He has helped me.

I hope, myself, I am at the end of wandering, and in the position, to reach the promised land.  And I am not talking about heaven yet.  Even though, I know, tomorrow, is not promised to anyone.

I am talking about, finding God, finding answers, finding revelation, by His Holy Spirit, through Jesus, in a new way.  Knowing Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  So, my life, can be reinvented.  I want revelation, not just information.  I want to tap into who God is, by searching for Christ.  To get that guidance, peace, understanding…yes answers, to life.

I no longer, want to jump through hoops, if that makes sense, but I want to stop, listen, and search for God, with all of my heart and being, and I want to have the right spirit, that will obey God.

Reinventing myself?  No.  Maybe, I just want to be, the person, God intended me to be, from the beginning.  Fulfilled, because of who Christ is in me.  As I get to know Christ, as I submit, as I try…..I know who He is, and then, I am able to know who I am, and what I am capable of.

If that means, I need to discipline myself, and be obedient to God, then yes, this is what I want.  I don’t want to wander any more.  I don’t want to stay the way, I was.  Every day, I want to grow, in the blessings, God promises.  For, I know, with Him, it could be so much more different.  I want to avoid any curse.  Because I would choose to be disobedient.

My perspective is this.  There is only one way, to be fulfilled, completely, and that is by knowing Christ.   Then, I know myself.  Because I am learning who He is, and applying His truths to my life.  By His word.  When I turn away from Him, I am lost.  His scripture, reminds me, that every day, I have an opportunity, to change.  To choose.  You see, its always a choice…..

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life, and death, blessing and cursing:  therefore “choose” life, that both thou and thy seed may live:  That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him;  for He is thy life, and the length of thy days:  that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.  Deuteronomy 30:19-20 

Every day, one can reinvent themselves, if they let Christ, do the inventing.  Nothing is too hard for Him.  Nothing, is impossible with Him.  Thats the beginning of being made new, whole, and complete.  Reinvented……

Saying, yes, to Christ.  Every day, I have to do that…..and I am changed, renewed, blessed.  But it is a choice.

Just my thoughts, with Love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, sometimes, we ask who am I?  And the first thing, that came to my mind, and heart, is I am your child.  I am created in your image.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  I am the head, not the tail.  I am more than a conqueror through Christ.  I am healed.  By your stripes, yes, I am healed.  Lord, your word, these thoughts, are all based on your word.  I don’t have to reinvent myself, if I am listening to you.  If you open the doors, if you make a way.  Weary, sometimes, we all get weary, but Lord, I know, I do not want to do anything, unless you are a part of it.  Thank you for helping me, thank you for making a way, for you are the way, the truth, and life.  Thank you Lord, for giving me food for thought.  Scripture food for thought….yes Lord, in Jesus name.  Amen

SEEK THE ANOINTING FROM GOD


The anointing from God, is a gift, that He gives to empower you, to do great things in His name. From the laying of the hands, to heal the sick, or to speak a mighty word, that gives revelation, or to just live victoriously.

I just want to encourage you, about seeking the anointing from God. To be aware of it. To call it forth, by the blood of Jesus. Jesus, is the great anointed one, that was sent to set us free. So His blood, by His anointing, breaks curses, and makes a way. Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6

For you see, the blood of Jesus, is the most powerful force, from God, in our lives, to apply. When you pray, pray, and plead the blood of Jesus. Anoint yourself, and those things, that need Gods power. Know, and do research on the anointing. Ask, God for His anointing. Ask him for revelation.

But know this, the anointing, breaks yokes, breaks bondage, and brings the power of God into any situation. This scripture below, I claim, myself, because I so long, for the anointing of God, to be revealed in my own life. To do great things for our Lord.

Just thoughts, for your consideration. But desire the anointing of God in your life. And the lives of your loved ones. And see, God do a great and mighty thing, that He will get glory for…..What a mighty God, we serve. See God in the anointing of your own life. You will never, be the same…..

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD IS UPON ME: BECAUSE THE LORD HATH ANOINTED ME, TO PREACH GOOD TIDINGS UNTO THE MEEK; HE HATH SENT ME TO BIND UP THE BROKENHEARTED TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND THE OPENING OF THE PRISON TO THEM THAT ARE BOUND. TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD, AND THE DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD; TO COMFORT ALL THAT MOURN. TO APPOINT UNTO THEM THAT MOURN IN ZION, TO GIVE UNTO THEM BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THE OIL OF JOY FOR MOURNING, THE GARMENT OF PRAISE FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS, THAT THEY MIGHT BE CALLED TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED. ISAIAH 61:1-3

With Love in Christ, I praise God….

Just my thoughts…Elena Ramirez

A PRAYER OF HONOR…

Father, almighty God, I seek your anointing in my life.  I plead the blood of Jesus.  I come before you humble, repentant, and always before you, an open book.  You know me, you know my ways.  Father, how I long for your anointing to do great things in your name.  To give you glory, and honor.  Anoint me, and break the curses.  Anoint me, and I will never, ever stop, giving you glory, and honor.  Anoint me, to help others.  For the sacrifice of Christ, was too great.  I plead the blood of Jesus.  And thank you for your anointing, in Jesus, name.  Teach me, and show me, never to take it for granted, or to abuse it.  Remind me by your love…..For it is a gift so worthy of Christ.  That I cherish it.  Amen
