I feel led to talk about sin, right now. One does not hear much about it any more.
Even from the pulpit, sadly. It will pollute you.
But I feel led to write about it, because many even in the body of Christ, think you are judging them, if you bring it up. They get angry, indignant, they think you are judging them.
Yet, according to Ezekiel 33, from my King James Bible, it says, we are called to warn, and warn, even the “righteous.”
When I read that word, righteous, I assume it to mean, a Christian, who thinks they are saved, but they are allowing sin, into their life, their soul, and physical body.
God tells us to be Holy, for He is holy. And sometimes, I just shake my head, because I see many think their salvation, is a license to sin, and thats just plain wrong.
FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD: YE SHALL THEREFORE SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, AND YE SHALL BE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY: NEITHER SHALL YE DEFILE YOURSELVES WITH ANY MANNER OF CREEPING THING THAT CREEPETH UPON THE EARTH. Leviticus 11:44. KJV.
Beware of sinful creeps. Just saying….
Folks, in our King James bibles, it tells us, God will not hear us, if sin is there. And again, I emphasize get a King James bible, that is holy, and not corrupt. You won’t get the truth, the anointing, the holiness from a bible that is corrupted. So get a King James bible.
But just know, any kind of sin, will hurt us. And thats the part, that grieves me, to know, sin separates us from Him. From His sweet fellowship, His counsel, His love, and friendship, if we choose to sin.
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 KJV.
Have you ever tried to worship God, but worship does not come out of your spirit? You feel cold, you feel numb? Remember God is a spirit, and those that worship Him, worship Him in spirit and truth. If you have so much sin, in you that “pollutes” your spirit, your faith will be off, and so will your worship. I wrote “How To Have Faith.”
I learned these principles, that I write about in my book, because I know there are differences. And sin, will stop it all, sin, will blind you, sin will make you have a “dirty” spirit. Check yourself, do you allow sin, that pollutes you?
I have grown enough, to know that I want no sin in my life. See, we reap what we sow. And spiritually, those sins, when un-repented. Dirty our spirits. They dirty our souls, they dirty our physical bodies, and our minds. Think about those who sin, and how filthy their minds are. You don’t want that, you don’t want to reap sin, in your life, you don’t want anything that separates you from God.
I could write a long list, of what sin does, because it comes from the enemy, and it is meant, to kill, steal, and destroy the life God has given you. Thats the enemies goal. And if the enemy, can take your crown, before Salvation, he will tempt you. But if you give your heart to Christ, and repent, truly, and (I recommend daily repentance) you can see yourself change, and grow more to His image. You can run from temptation.
When I say they actually dirty the body. Think about sexual diseases. Think about diseases that cause cancer, or destroy parts of the body. Smoking, drinking, drugs, open doors to illnesses, that one will reap, if they pursue that. We need to teach this to our youth.
So when I see a Christian open a door, and suggest its o.k. to drink or take drugs, they are not seeing how it can hurt someone, even others, who reap that. They are contributing to sin, and a Christian, should never do that.
I suppose this is why I pray, even now, to not be a part of those things, because I see, how all of these things led to my own brokenness, and because of sin. I reaped much of that. Yet, I was pruned by Christ. Whom He Loves He corrects. And believe me, He corrected me. And His correction is not always pleasant. See, God is not mocked. But I reaped what I sowed.
And I am bearing fruit for Him now, because I see the error of my ways. I repented, and I still do. Even when I think of my sins. One can have a new beginning, even where you are. Even if you are old.
Even if you are taking your last breath, because then, at least you are promised eternity. But you cannot have it, if sin is there, or its un-repented.
I am not holier then thou. I say all of this to you, with a very humble heart. I know where I came from. I know what I was delivered from. I know, where I have been. So when I tell you this, I don’t tell you to judge you. Because as the scripture says, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. I know this, it grieves me to know I sinned. To know, I had such poor judgment, especially in my youth. I made mistakes that were sins, that haunt me for the rest of my life. But when the devil does that, I remind him, NOW who I am in Christ. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. Read Romans 8:1 King James.
Yet…. I know, I am not worthy on my own. But only by the blood of Jesus. That cleansed me. But when you see what He did on the cross for you, when you see, who you were, and now changed, it does make you see, one should not play with their salvation. Your salvation, is not a license to sin.
But just know this, even though it may feel like judging, its warning. And we are called to even warn the righteous. Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James, over and over again. Because the righteous, could mean someone who thinks they are saved.
And I see so many in the body of Christ, play with it, they do not fear God, or work it out, with fear and trembling. And I don’t care what folks say, about works. But faith without works is dead. You need to work it out. You don’t take it for granted.
EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE. JAMES 2:17 KJV.
Let me just say this, and try and make this somewhat short and sweet. Sin, stops your blessings, the blessings God intends for you. Sin, clouds your mind, distorts truth, and will actually blind you. You will believe the delusion. And many in the body of Christ, even now, are delusional.
AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE. II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.
And this is hard to understand in some cases. But…one can reap sickness, or illness, if you continue in sin, and don’t repent. Don’t think you won’t, one will. This is why Christ, took those stripes, and by His stripes we are healed. He took the penalty, of our sins. See sin, brings curses, and thats another thing, you want to avoid, with all your being. There are many different curses. If you want to read my book on this, go to this link. You can order it on line, on Smashwords. There both of my books can be ordered on line.
All I can say, is repent, even daily, keep your robes white, keep oil in your lamp, live for Christ, get a good King James bible, pray. And stay away from sin, stay away from the enemy.
Submit to God, resist the enemy, and he will flee. Your job, is to stay close to God, stay away from sin, and live the best life you can with your salvation in tact.
I hope this helps someone.
Blessings, and love in Christ,
I want my Christian brothers, and sisters to see this. I plead with them to know truth. I speak to all people, but how can a Christian, who is not seeing this, actually able to minister effectively?
I know God can use any bit of truth, even the smallest. But when the “lump” is compromised. When the truth, is distorted, into part truth, and part lies. The enemy can come in, and deceive. Let no man steal your crown, Christ warns. Its in the first fruits in honoring God, in obedience, in seeing truth. That can make this difference between God and a counterfeit.
FOR IF THE FIRST FRUIT BE HOLY, THE LUMP IS ALSO HOLY; AND IF THE ROOT BE HOLY SO ARE THE BRANCHES. ROMANS 11:16. KJV.
A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENETH THE WHOLE LUMP. GALATIANS 5:10 KJV.
Here leaven is referring to the wrong doctrine, and I would say because of these false bible versions.
But, this is what I am seeing with many Christians. Who are not choosing truth, but choosing the counterfeit.
They are choosing the counterfeit. They are choosing the lie. They go to battle for the lie. They go to battle for the false prophet. They go to battle, thinking, they are doing right, but what they are doing is so wrong in the sight of God. If only they had this much passion for the true Kingdom of God.
I have seen this with friends, with people I love. And as I try and even speak truth, I turn into the bad guy. According to them, I turn into the mean one. I turn into someone, who is coming against Gods anointed, for they remind me, “touch not my anointed.” (funny I taught this person this scripture and others) but anyway, I have seen it.
They forget to love. They forget not to return evil, for evil. They want to make me the outcast. Just because I uphold truth, and my King James bible… For thus saith the Lord!
I have actually shopped, with some of my friends, and we go into Christian book stores, and they choose the book, or cd, that the fake prophet has written, and they are so inspired. They love their ears tickled. But I did not say anything…
But they hate me now, because I don’t tickle ears any more. I never really did, tickle ears, but the fruit, has been compromised. Even with other lies. That came in, and it grieves me, because I could not stop it. But I am speaking up, because I am alarmed, at how they grasp these false messages. And embrace, and put up on a pedestal that false prophet. Even on their posts.
I might not even say anything, most times, I don’t, but every once in a while when something comes across my desk, I might say; Like wow, did you hear what that person said? And I present, what they said, not what I said, but the proof is in a video, or in their own words, yet they get mad. And they get mad at me.
Well truth be, I am called to speak truth. I am not famous, I haven’t gotten a book deal, and reached success, according to the worlds standards. So, if anybody listens to me, for truth, I pray they hear that. But I will not compromise truth, to please people, or tickle ears.
Because I don’t follow anybody, but Christ, and what my King James bible says. I don’t even admire anybody right now, because I haven’t truly found any leaders, that uphold the King James, or speak a strong salvation message. I just don’t.
Nope, what I see are these prosperity messengers, or these lying prophets, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote religion. (Rules, regulations, traditions made by men, and groups.) Or even with the women, they ride on their husbands coat tail. And I won’t attend their church, nor will I embrace them by promoting them. Let alone, following them.
Really…. oh well.
But it does grieve me, and if it grieves me, I know it has to grieve God, for the Christian, who does not see the truth in these false prophets. In the lying prosperity message, etc. It grieves God when the word, is twisted, and turned around by these fake bibles. It grieves God, because it defies Him, with no fear of God, or the consequences.
I fear God.
God sees, when the pastor, who denies, what KJV scripture, says, who might even have an agenda, to promote, division. Who does not tell everyone, or teach to bow, before Christ. That somehow or another, a group of people, is not a part of that. Yet the word says, there is no difference between the jew or gentile. That all will bow, and confess Jesus is Lord. These pastors who do these kind of things to sell books, or cds, well its obvious, they want to be front and center. Not Gods King James word.
And sadly, not God Himself. They defy that, whats wrong with you folks, who do that, are blinded.
I always look at each pastors, bible, reference. Is it King James, and usually its a counterfeit, they use.
I don’t have that agenda, to be front and center. I don’t. I want my Lord to be glorified, by truth, not by lies. I don’t want to hear, I never knew you. From Christ. Like I said, I fear God, and I know enough of my Bible, to see this. I am not a know-it-all. But what I do know, I will show for the glory of God, and only God.
I feel for my brothers and sisters, in Christ, who embrace these false prophets. Who cannot get true discernment, and become confused, because they even embrace fake word, with these false bible versions. I feel for them. Because they embrace the prosperity message.
But, I will continue to walk in truth, I will write truth, I will walk in love. And if I make enemies, oh well, God fights my battles, and I know it. And I don’t even have to see it, I know they will reap what they sow, because this is scriptural. Vengeance is HIS, and I can walk on, because I forgive. I will not allow that poison in my heart, and soul. We are temples of the living God, and it makes me wonder who is living in some of these temples? Its not God, for God is love…..
I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOU THROUGH THE LORD, THAT YE WILL BE NONE OTHERWISE MINDED: BUT HE THAT TROUBLETH YOU SHALL BEAR HIS JUDGMENT, WHOSOEVER HE BE. GALATIANS 5:10 KJV.
But I know the difference, and I will not follow anybody but Christ, through my King James bible.
My bible, speaks about truth, about who God is, what His commandments say. It speaks, about the salvation, we can have through Christ. It speaks, about warning, others, and maybe this is what I am trying to do, because even the “righteous” Christian, who thinks they are right. According to Ezekiel 33. Needs to be warned. (read it yourself)
I am warning here…. Because they think its judging someone, but its warning! Don’t confuse judging with warning, if you are seeking truth. Because you will get confused.
It warns us Christ tells us to get right with Him, keep our garments clean. (repent daily) Yet, some thinks bible is about the seed, and harvest, or about tithing, and they hold onto that, and let go of the truth. They embrace the counterfeit.
I will continue to see through false messages, who thinks its only grace that saves them and does not embrace the law, they will find out and be in for a rude awakening, when they stand before God, because God throughout His word, says, keep His commandments. Yet they throw the law out.
But the only way, I can continue to see through false messages is to be totally submitted to God. To obey Him. To give no place to the enemy. And this is is my goal. And I pray thats your goal, as well.
But the counterfeit lies, that are out their in full force, have hurt the body of Christ, and nobody, wants to take the side of truth. Oh well, I will walk the narrow road, by myself.
For the friends, I have lost, even recently, have taught me, and shown me, fruit, that was counterfeit. Not of love. Returning evil for evil. Woe unto them that call good evil. And evil good. Giving me the silent treatment, when I gave grace. Not truly forgiving… No all of these things, have shown me, more then ever. Truth.
But I will continue with Christ. With His truth, and with His love. That is not compromised. I feel for my brothers and sisters in Christ, I truly do. I see, how the world is lost, and those that could make a difference, do not, because they let the lump be compromised. I see, how it weakens our faith, I see how it can open the door to the enemy. But if I warn them I then become their enemy.
Its their choice, to not choose God, and His truth, and to choose the counterfeit. But He will judge. Let alone knowing, they reap what they sow. And if I could only get someone to see this, to repent, to choose wisely, then maybe my gift and calling, would bring glory to God. If I could pull them from hells fire. To keep their garment clean, and not with spot.
Because I serve, God and only God, and I submit to God, I renounce, and denounce the enemy, and want nothing to do with lies that create counterfeits.
As I close, please, remember this. Don’t overthrow Gods truth, and choose the counterfeit. Please don’t. You will regret it, maybe for eternity, if you don’t repent, and change. Please…..
AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHERE THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE, AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER. REVELATION 20:10 KJV.
Blessings, in Christ only,
Sometimes, approaching someone in truth, is hard. I understand. But sometimes, you have to find the courage to speak it, say it, because as the scripture says, it sets us free.
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. JOHN 8:32 KJV.
I suppose, thats why I am writing this. Because I am searching for truth. But I am not the one withholding it.
I understand, some people have a hard time with truth. I understand, I have the boldness, to speak it, and to reveal it. Now I know there are some things, wisdom, has taught me, about that.
Concerning silence, and I don’t want this to be confused, either. Because there is silence, with grace. And there is silence, with the intention to hurt someone with the “silent treatment.”
But recently, I read a GIF, that said; “Some friends, go for long periods of time, without communicating, but they never question the friendship, and remain friends.”
And I thought…. that used to be me, a few months ago…..
And I won’t get into details. But I have changed my stance. After some time, after some reflection, after letting things settle a bit.
I see how not telling truth, can destroy. Not communicating…..Avoiding truth, making excuses, not being accountable. I no longer trust silence. From anyone. In fact, truth be, I only trust God. I am glad it happened. Because I have learned how things can change. How people can. And only God keeps His word.
But to apply it here….I no longer trust a lack of communication. Because it is hiding a lie, of being offended. Or other things…
You see, silence is not always golden.
Lies, when you trust people, and believe the best in them, yet their motives are different, you see, if only communication had been applied, at the time, then a “lie” would not have had power.
I saw this firsthand. You see, When someone denies the truth, even after you asked them. And you see the evidence of truth, because it was not only obvious, it was not a coincidence. Something was spoken simultaneously. Yet you asked, for the truth, and it was denied. You see the truth, of a lie, because it was not communicated. It tried to protect someone, it tried, to avoid truth. It went into denial….
It tried to be a secret.
But do they not see, it gave place to the enemy? Because he is the father of lies?
And it snowballed. It got bigger, and it tried to destroy. Yet you extended grace.
The wrong kind….even though the motive was heart felt, it was given in a lie.
For, not all people, have the same intention in matters of truth, and friendship, and loyalty, and honesty.
I guess, I am, writing about this, because I am not trying to hurt anybody, or myself. But I am trying, in my own little way, to speak truth and love. Because I want a lie, to be exposed….
But I will not confront someone, and beg for truth. I can be silent too…. I can and have walked away.
I suppose respect has taught me this…..respect for God to do His job in such matters.
But I have my part. He says forgive. I do, yet I think about it…..
But because I know that our Lord, hates liars. He hates and sees, how lies, come from the enemy. He knows, we cannot truly be free, until, we speak truth. For it will set us free. We cannot be silent, if we truly want to be free in Christ. I want truth, for those who were involved, to be free. Thats all. In love, in forgiving, in mercy….
Yet, I want to be free from it, because no matter how much I say, I forgive. I am reminded, of how the enemy destroyed something very precious to me, in friendship. Trust. They say trust is earned.
Maybe it could be earned again, because I do have a gracious heart. I don’t know, and this is not a guarantee, that I would. Because too much silence has gone by.
But I will not use, grace to be silent, to withhold love and communication. Truth! To purposely hurt someone, as it was to me.
It would require sacrifice but not from me. You see, if I had other motives, then I would not respect myself. I would actually understand, even the silent treatment….and maybe that was me, before I truly saw what Christ did. But not now. I have come too far. My sins, are covered, and in fact, I daily go to the throne, in repentance.
But I do respect who I am in Christ, because I will not try to find loop holes, or avoid, my own sins. I go to the cross, and I go to those who have been offended.
And I apologize, when I am wrong. But it is sad, when you have done that, and it was still thrown in your face. People, that do that, did not forgive, not truly. There is the fruit in that. And it does not come from the Holy Spirit. So please, before you judge someones spirit in these matters. Look at what you did first.
Why I write this, is only because I will not let the enemy, think, he won. Because something that is given by God, cannot be taken away, unless it wants to be taken away. True friendships, last a lifetime, even if someone thinks its only a season.
And a friend truly loves at all times. One may say one thing, about friendship, and that it is “Godgiven” but if the fruit reveals a lie, and denial. The gift was denied. It truly, was not recognized as a gift, from God, to honor it. I am talking symbolically. But I am also talking about this, by actions. For it affects the spirituality of a choice. God will not bless a lie.
Because actions, showed, they did not care, that it was God given…. Anything that God gives to us, is holy. Marriage, etc. Even friendship. But if friendship is not treated as holy, and treated like the world would, in actions, and lies. Obscenities…
Well the friendship will break, because God did give it in holiness. But we have the responsibility to honor it, to protect it, to offer communication, and not close the case.
If anything to go to God….and do it His way. For He is the way, the truth, and life.
Same thing with our salvation, you cannot treat what Christ did for you on the cross, shabbily. Because you deny the holiness. This is breaking a covenant. Christ did not break it. One did, by allowing sin.
I suppose this is why God extends grace to us, to come to His throne. Because He loves us, He wants to spare us, the legality of what sin, and lies do. This is why He sent Christ, for only Christ is holy.
But to go to others, as well, and admit a wrong doing. But if you ask for forgiveness, ask for it, because you meant it, not because you got caught in a lie.
Stop making excuses. To clear the slate. To clear your conscious. Do not give the enemy any place in that which you thought was “Godgiven.” Don’t give mixed signals. Focus on what you did first.
Then go to the cross, and see, what our sins, did to Christ.
If other offenses are there, communicate them, don’t hide them in your heart or the other person will never know.
You see, truly as the scripture says. The truth, will set you free. Be free. But you have to recognize the lie. You have to admit the truth, you have to see your part in it. Or you will never grow, to the potential, you could have, in Christ.
I am extending a chance right now. I believe God is too, or I would not be writing this. I love how He uses me. He uses my hurts, He uses, my experiences…..For He knows, I will always try to bring Him glory in these matters.
Maybe to “whom it may concern,” will see this. Will grow. Will not let silence be lost. As a chance. But chances do not last forever.
Maybe thats why I would urge, implore anybody. Get right with God, first, repent, admit the lie. Then go to who you lied to, or who you offended. Don’t think, because you may not see evidence, that you fooled someone.
Because what you did, is you hurt yourself. God did see you doing this. Even if they don’t know. Tell them. Grow…..
Such a fine line. Is it worth it? Thats between you and God. Yes it may hurt, you may be denied. This is not a guarantee that things can be restored. But you freed yourself. Isn’t that important? You are responsible, for your own soul. No matter what….We cannot control others, or manipulate them. In truth or a lie.
Because we never know. Time is precious. So are friendships, so are relationships, and family, but lies only destroy. Don’t lose a chance….
Make it right, because you have and know the good of who God is.
That truly is God given, but He won’t honor lies….
I HAVE NOT WRITTEN UNTO YOU BECAUSE YE KNOW NOT THE TRUTH, BUT BECAUSE YE KNOW IT, AND THAT NO LIE IS OF THE TRUTH. I JOHN 2:21 KJV.

ITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez
Iron sharpens iron, as the scripture says:
IRON SHARPENETH IRON; SO A MAN SHARPENETH THE COUNTENANCE OF HIS FRIEND. PROVERBS 27:17 KJV.
What does that mean? It means that we sharpen each other, as brothers and sisters, friends, in Christ, with Gods Holy King James word. By sharing it, by encouraging each other. With love, By bringing light into darkness, to illuminate truth, Gods Holy truth. To show others truth, to get them away from hells fire. To show them, Christ is the way, the truth, and life.
So you use it to fight the enemy, and you are victorious.
You see the word of God, is a sword. And it will cut. It will stop the devil in His tracks.
FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK, AND POWERFUL, AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWOEDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF THE JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART. HEBREWS 4:12 KJV.
It needs to be sharp, to be effective. I am here even now trying to sharpen iron.
It is actually very sad, and pathetic, to see the body of Christ in the state its in now. Because I see a lot of sloppy agape. A lot of judgment, a lot of Christians, who have embraced the prosperity message, and when they need a word, they do not have it.
And if the words they do find, somehow or another, find a way to communicate the words are not holy word! They are corrupt word. They are counterfeit word, because the word has been tampered with, and they disobeyed God in this.
The KJV is holy, and has withstood time, (over four hundred years) and is stored in heaven and earth.
BUT THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WHICH ARE NOW, BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN. II PETER 3:7 KJV.
When a Christian uses the KJV they are on the same page, with God almighty Himself. There are many scriptures that tell us, to not mess with His word.
And He says do not change it, add to it, or delete it. And so when a Christian uses those corrupt versions, which I call a per-version, it is deceptive. But God does not change in these matters. Because He looks at those who do as liars.
EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE: HE IS A SHIELD UNTO THEM THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM. ADD THOU NOT UNTO HIS WORDS, LEST HE REPROVE THEE, AND THOU BE FOUND A LIAR. PROVERBS 30:5-6. KJV.
And maybe I can sharpen someone, to see, how important knowing Gods true, King James word is. For it is anointed. It is powerful, it is holy.
And in these times that we are in, I see how, the enemy has deceived so many. By not knowing King James word, by not using King James word, by not sharing word.
The body of Christ is dull right now, sadly. And pathetically. And the enemy rejoices.
Have you ever tried to have an intelligent conversation, or a healthy debate with someone, concerning what God says, and they try to articulate what they think or feel, but they do not even have the scriptures to back it up?
Now I am not going to brag or puff myself up, but I know my sword of truth. I know what God says in many instances. And people are so deceived, because they believe the lies.
They follow the blind, because they are blind. They do not obey God, in these matters. They don’t know truth, so they put others on a pedestal, and are misled.
And one thing they are misled in is in the fear of God. The body of Christ is not taught that, and because of that, they err.
I fear God. Because there are consequences.
THEN SHALT THOU UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. PROVERBS 2:5. KJV.
All I know, is when the light is not on, we are not shining for Christ. We are not to hide our light under a bushel.
NO MAN WHEN HE HATH LIGHTED A CANDLE, PUTTETH IT IN A SECRET PLACE, NEITHER UNDER A BUSHEL, BUT ON A CANDLESTICK, THAT THEY WHICH COME IN MAY SEE THE LIGHT. LUKE 11:33 KJV.
But have you asked yourself…. Maybe you don’t shine your light, because you don’t know KJV word? And only you can answer that. But maybe you need to get your self in gear, as a disciple of Christ, and learn it. By discipling yourself.
In fear of Him, to tell others the truth of the gospel. For, its not even that people are hiding their light for Christ. But maybe….Its because there is no true light in them. Or maybe because the word they are studying is not true word. And….They don’t know the true word, and they cannot shine for Christ. And thats exactly what the devil wants.
Shame on any of us, who do not shine for Christ! Shame!
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 KJV.
It says according to this word, not any word that has been changed. Its very sad, and pathetic. That many do not see the deceptions.
That many do not sharpen their own swords. That many are silent. Now I understand why they are, because they do not know Gods word, and its exactly again, what the enemy wants.
I could go on, and on here, about it, but you know my writings, you know I promote the King James. And you know, I share word. King James word.
Recently, I had a conversation with someone, I love dearly, and I still do, but this person, who I esteemed highly, so wanted to challenge me, argue with me, debate me about word, but yet could not even voice it, or articulate it, because she had no true light in her.
So, what did she do? She tried to turn it around, and mock my walk with the Lord. At least “I try,” I told her. No, I am not the perfect Christian, but I will try for Christ, and what He did on that cross for me. No, I won’t sit idle, and lazy, and not praise God, and give the enemy a place. No I will use what God has given me, and at least TRY!
I will not be cowardly, not when I have the greatest weapon, my sword of truth, and I need to sharpen myself in these matters. But I will try!
For some day, I will stand before God, and I want and long to hear, well done, good, and faithful servant.
To not try, is to not care, and I will not be counted with the goats. Even now Christ is separating the goats from the sheep.
AND BEFORE HIM SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS: AND HE SHALL SEPARATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDETH HIS SHEEP FROM THE GOATS: MATTHEW 25:32. KJV.
I submit to God, totally, I resist the devil and he must flee, but what has taught me that, IS the fear of God, that I have learned from my King James.
The world mocks us, they call us “Bible Thumpers” and I get righteously indignant, when I see them do that, and yes, I will fight with Truth. With my sword, of truth.
Because this is how we know our God! This is how we learn what He accepts and does not accept. This is how we get discernment to know right from wrong, good and evil. And for us not to use this tool that God gives us, is just down right ignorant and stupid, to mock it, or ignore it.
Sorry if that offends, ANYBODY, but its true, we are in a sad state as the body of Christ.
There are so many Christians, who could make a difference for the Kingdom of God, and they do not shine their lights, and they do not know word, and they let the enemy win.
Its sad, I have no other words, that can even distinguish it, because it is pathetic.
What does God see? All I know, is never stop learning, never stop sharing Gods word, and never take that sword of truth for granted.
I implore you my brothers and sisters in Christ, learn the word! Keep studying daily. Write it, and share it, and sharpen your own sword. For iron, sharpens iron.
I love you in Christ, but I love my Lord more, and I, as His ambassador in Christ, implore you, to keep growing. In holy King James word.
NOW THEN WE ARE AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST, AS THOUGH GOD DID BESEECH YOU BY US, WE PRAY YOU IN CHRIST’S STEAD, BE YE RECONCILED TO GOD. II CORINTHIANS 5:20 KJV.
You are on the vine, stay connected to Christ. If not, your branch will be thrown into the fire.
IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, AND IS WITHERED; AND MEN GATHER THEM, AND CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED. JOHN 15:6. KJV.
Don’t think your salvation is in tact, if you have no light, and you do not abide in Christ. Look at this scripture, among others, I am called to warn, you are called to warn, (read Ezekiel 33) but if you have no true word, you cannot tell them they will be cast into the fire.
If ever another scripture was meant to tell us, our salvation can be taken away from the book of life, this one tells us, we could be cast into the fire, and burned. You wither away, by not having true word.
You cannot portray the fruits of the spirit, if you are not obedient to God in this and other matters.
WHAT FRUIT HAD YE THEN IN THOSE THINGS WHEREOF YE ARE NOW ASHAMED? FOR THE END OF THOSE THINGS IS DEATH. ROMANS 6:21 KJV.
We cannot be hypocrites, or be in denial, or really an enemy to self, by denying these truths. We need word, holy word. King James word. We need to keep growing.
Look again, I am far from being perfect. I know my flaws. I know I have had terrible judgment. I have sinned, I have made mistakes, I grieve over. But I take them all to the cross, even now, and humble myself, in the sight of God, and others. And repent, yes daily.
But I am not the tail. I am the head, because HE IS THE GREAT I AM. Because I am His daughter. Because I plead the blood of Jesus. Because I repent, And I seek to know His ways, and I implore you, please learn, His truths. Please obey.
Someday we all will stand before Him. And He is not mocked. We reap what we sow. I don’t judge you in this, but I warn you. In love. I sincerely, try to teach you this, so you can be the best you can be in Christ.
LET HIM THAT IS TAUGHT IN THE WORD COMMUNICATE UNTO HIM THAT TEACHETH IN ALL GOOD THINGS. BE NOT DECEIVED: GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING. AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING: FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. GALATIANS 6:6-9 KJV.
Its not too late for any of us while we breathe, move, live and have our being in Christ. We can make a difference for the body of Christ.
But don’t be lazy, let us not be weary in well doing. Learn, share, and grow in Christ. By knowing King James word. You would only have yourself to blame, if you do not heed my advice in this matter.
FOR IN HIM WE LIVE, AND MOVE, AND HAVE OUR BEING: AS CERTAIN ALSO OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, FOR WE ARE ALSO HIS OFFSPRING. ACTS 17:28 KJV.
I implore you, before Christ knocks on your door, invite Him in, and repent of sin, let Him teach you His ways, for truth and life. Taking away the spirit of strife that comes from rebellion, and sin, let Him teach you, how to begin…..Take your KJV sword of truth, and let it give you the mind of Christ. To find your path and avoid His wrath….
MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I WILL ALSO REJECT THEE, THAT THOU SHALT BE NO PRIEST TO ME: SEEING THOU HAST FORGOTTEN THE LAW OF THY GOD, I WILL ALSO FORGET THY CHILDREN. HOSEA 4:6. KJV.
Much love, in Christ,

NOTE TO SELF: http://notetoselfbyelenaramirez.wordpress.com
As God is my example, of course I forgive. I release the poison. I will not keep it in my heart. I will obey God.
But as God is my example, I do not tolerate disrespect. GOD IS NOT MOCKED. I release the disrespect and the mockery, and I stand my ground. I take back my respect from anybody who tries to steal it.
Disrespect is a form of mockery, and if my Lord, does not tolerate it, why should I? I don’t have to, and I can keep my peace and walk away.
It does not mean I do not forgive it means, I know who I am in Christ.
BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING. AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING; FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. AS WE HAVE THEREFORE OPPORTUNITY, LET US DO GOOD UNTO ALL MEN, ESPECIALLY UNTO THEM WHO ARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.
GALATIANS 6:7-10 KJV.
I hope these thoughts will encourage someone. You see, long story short, if you have ever been disrespected by someone, it feels like they have taken something away from you. And its hard to regain trust, or even a sense of confidence, when you allow someone to do that. Even after you forgive. But Christ did not tell us, to trust someone who does that.
It has happened to me a few times, and even by family members. So recently when an offense occurred between me and a former friend, I knew I could not allow it. And I hate to say former, but right now, it does not look good. I will always care though for this person.
I had tried to extend grace, but that same grace was not extended to me. I called it for what it was. Respect. Respect was not given to me. I was being snubbed and ignored. And I took my respect back.
I walked away. And sometimes you have to do that. The sad thing, is, I love the person. But this person, would not give me the courtesy, that I extended. And it took me a while. To see, it, but really I see and believe God showed me.
I was in a spiritual battle for over two weeks, and I was trying to keep communication opened, but it was closed shut in my face. The Lord showed me this person was given to change. Said one thing, but yet, was being offended with me, and it just did not make sense.
MY SON, FEAR THOU THE LORD, AND THE KING: AND MEDDLE NOT WITH THEM THAT ARE GIVEN TO CHANGE. Proverbs 24:21. KJV.
This person was given to change. The actions, the “heartfelt intentions” this person said they had, did not match the actions.
I think it took me a while because sometimes, you don’t see it. Its subtle, its in subliminal ways, that people treat you, that may be indirect, but keep you puzzled. Or frustrated, because you cannot resolve issues. This is where I was with this person. But I did not see it, because love and friendship should be gracious. Should be kind, it should be honorable. I gave it, in grace. But grace was not extended to me.
But if you are tolerated, and not celebrated. Look and see the signs. Its not in the gift one gives, but in the respect.
You need to see what people really mean, by their actions. Not so much their words. But their actions. Silence is not always golden, my friend.
And if you are an opened book, like I am. You expect someone to be honest, and opened with you. Respect yourself, and reject anybody who will not respect you. Anyone who tries to control you, by that is using manipulation. And the KJV scriptures talk about that, as being like witchcraft. Nope walk away.
Remember its not just about forgiving. Its about knowing who you are in Christ. He did not call us to become door mats, or someones stepping stone. Yes, forgive so the poison, will not penetrate you. But respect yourself enough, to walk away. Know who you are in Christ. Put on your armor of God, and walk away. Quench those fiery darts, by His love.
I hope this helps someone.
Blessings, and love,
I just want to decree this, I want to make it clear. As many of you know, I do want to speak publicly, in your church or congregation.
I have not done it in a while. I know, God has His reasons. But something dawned on me, just now, to speak this, to publicly proclaim it.
If I am ever called to give a testimony, or to speak publicly in a church. I will not try to sell my book there. Even today, I wrote just on impulse, Gods impulse, about how Christ turned the tables, on those who changed the temple, to sell what they had. I don’t want to be one of those Christians.
If God blesses my book, financially, in other ways, then so be it. But I will not try to peddle the word of God, or peddle my book, in His House. In His temple.
That may sound strange to some. But I don’t care. I really do only want to serve God. But if money came into the situation, somehow it would take away from the message.
I never want to compromise or let money, be the root of evil in serving God.
Does that make sense? I don’t know, but I am proclaiming it here.
To God be the glory….
