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.

And for such a time as this I write it. Why God has shown me this, is beyond me, but I do want to serve our Lord in truth. His truth. Not mans truth, not a publisher who purposely disobeys God in this. And certainly not in false prophets, who are to me, wolves in sheep’s clothing.
I don’t want nothing to do with that. And yes, the Lord has been showing me these things.
For a while now, I have tried with all my being, giving scripture, concerning the KJV word. That these Bible versions, that are out, and very much used, are, an abomination to God. Yes, an abomination. He does not accept them. Because they have disobeyed God by changing the word, and the word is not holy, but compromised.
I have told so many, this, as best as I can to my own ability, but I need the ability of God, so I press in with prayer, and the Holy word, in the King James, as Christ is the word. (see John 1 from the KJV to see His truth, as to being the word.) So I don’t just spin my wheels.
It just makes me think, He is holy. He did not compromise. Truth. He spoke it in love, and He was steadfast in that.
I want to be like that. I have been in a few spiritual battles lately, for this reason, but also because with the recent tragedies, I have seen “false prophets.” Those that claim they are serving God, yet they cannot serve their fellow person, unless they are publicly shamed. I have seen these false prophets, take scripture, twist it, change it, compromise it, for a prosperity message. That tickles others ears, but it is so far, from Gods truth, its obvious. There is no call, or warning to call those to repent. To tell them to seek Christ, because we are in end times. To ensure their salvation.
But obviously not to some, they think these messages are fine. For some think that their is an anointing in these messages. They think if it makes you feel good, it is good, and thereby there is no harm in it. They don’t see the contradictions because it does not line up with Gods holy word. Yet, the message eludes repentance, or a calling of those to beware, and to seek God for who He is, not what He can give. They turn God into an ATM. Its very deceptive, because it does tickle the ears. It grieves me. So if it grieves me it has to grieve God.
My thought is this, as it is also KJV scriptural, you know them by their fruit. Is the message, based on Gods holy, uncompromised Holy KJV word? Or is it a message, that tickles your ears? Is it a message, that does not cause you to search for God by also searching yourself, to see where one may fail? To repent to be humble? Is it a prosperity message? That totally disregards Gods truth, and commandments, His law. Gods ways are excellence. And He is not mocked. There was a reason, why Christ turned the tables in the temple. Do we forget what angers God?
One man, told me, I don’t care, if this prophet, is in the truth of the Bible, or if I even make it to heaven. I just want to have some hope in today. Wow, I thought.
For a while now, I have been trying to share this truth. About the deception in Bibles. Not to judge anybody, but because we are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the righteous. When I read that, from my King James. I am assuming the “righteous” is other Christians. And these brothers and sisters, who I try to warn, are not listening to what I say about exclusively only using the King James, but they are following false prophets. Who themselves use false word. They think its judging….
And I try to stop them, to bring it to their attention, not to judge them, but because I know what Gods word says in these matters, and I have discernment.
But it goes in one ear, and out the other. Either it is ignored, or they fight. And they fight with a vengeance, defending that which is wrong. They get so angry, if you bring it to their attention. They defend this unrighteousness, and they say you are judging. They dismiss, Gods holy word, that tells us, to beware of such prophets. Like Jeremiah 23:16.
THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, HEARKEN NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS THAT PROPHESY UNTO YOU: THEY MAKE YOU VAIN: THEY SPEAK A VISION OF THEIR OWN HEART, AND NOT OUT OF OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.
How specific does God have to get for us to get that? Do we have to see His wrath, before we open our eyes? Do we have to see our sins, separate ourselves from Him? Do we have to lose our blessings, our sense of discernment, because one would follow a prophet, who does that?
Oh how I grieved for that, man who told me that he did not even care if he made it to heaven! And I shared with him truth, but he did not even acknowledge me. I told him, get a King James bible.
I have told friends, who buy these books, and support these ministries, and read that crap, but they don’t listen. One friend, judged me, harshly, rudely, and insulted me, because I told her, I do not read these books, from someone who does not even obey God in this. This was concerning another false prophet.
Yet I walked in love. I had another friend, who totally ignored this but felt to even bring it up, one was a “backstabber” if they even said anything about a false prophet. Really? Because last time I checked, we are called to warn each other. We are called to mark those who cause division. And have nothing to do with them. We are called to test the spirits. To try them.
I had another friend, a gentleman, who told me I changed, I used to be so nice. And I thought, I still am nice. I just want you to have your blessings, I just want you to get answers to prayer. I just want you to please God. And have true discernment. I have noticed people would rather stop talking to you, and quit being your friend, if you even bring these matters up. About the KJV or false prophets.
Well oh well, I guess I am out of friends. Because I would rather please God, then deny His truth. But thats not true. I do have some faithful friends. Loyal friends. There are only a few that, that stand by me, support me, encourage me, and see my gift and calling. They share my writings, and they communicate. Communication is such a wonderful thing. Because we sharpen each other.
Anyway, concerning those who are not listening….
I have spoken these things, in love, and the love was not returned. I did not argue, fight, yet, I was ignored. And told to “agree, to disagree” was what was needed. Nor an apology was extended. Try telling God that when you ignore His word. Try telling God that when you need a miracle. Life is unpredictable, and if we are not doing our part, if we are not obedient to God, we are hypocrites, to say the least. How do we expect answers to prayer, if we do not obey Him, in just these matters?
If a pastor cannot obey God, even in the word he uses, or she, as a public speaker, why would I want that false anointing on me? Its part truth, and part lie! Where is the message for repentance, humbleness? These false prophets, promote pride.
But if you tell another brother or sister in Christ this, who thinks they are “righteous” (again like Ezekiel 33 says) They get very angry. They fight you. My thought is this, I do not want to be defending, or agreeing with someone that disobeys God in these matters. I don’t want to be on the wrong side. I would rather walk alone, then to be in the company of someone who insists these false bibles, and false prophets are correct.
Like the saying goes, “you can lead them to water, but you cannot make them drink it.” And I won’t hit someone on the head, with my King James bible, if they want to follow the blind. Like scripture says, the blind, will lead the blind, and they know not where they go. You might want to look it up from a KJV.
So this morning, because I know this is on Gods heart, He showed me the following scriptures:
WHY THEN IS THIS PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM SLIDDEN BACK BY PERPETUAL BACKSLIDING? THEY HOLD FAST DECEIT, THEY REFUSE TO RETURN. I HEARKENED AND HEARD, THEY SPAKE NOT ARIGHT: NO MAN REPENTED HIM OF HIS WICKEDNESS, SAYING WHAT HAVE I DONE? EVERY ONE TURNED TO HIS COURSE, AS THE HORSE RUSHETH INTO THE BATTLE. YEA, THE STORK IN THE HEAVEN KNOWETH HER APPOINTED TIMES; AND THE SWALLOW OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR COMING; BUT MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD. JEREMIAH 8:5-7. KJV.
Wow…His people do not know the judgment of the Lord. They refuse to return. From this, which God sees as backsliding. This is what I see, when my friends, or people ignore the warnings I give about false word, or false prophets. They do not repent, nor do they even acknowledge, the truth in these matters. They will not apologize, or even be accountable that they are not seeing it clearly. They would rather turn on the silent treatment. Well I can be silent too.
That scares me. In the fear of God. Not in judging, but in warning them.
I have another friend, who I love dearly. And we are having a discussion about not giving, and giving. Why? Because I don’t like being off balance. When I cannot give in return. Some people can do it free and easy. And some do not have the resources. I believe gifts, should be given in careful consideration, not just to give. I don’t like the feeling of just taking, but not being able to give equally. I don’t want to use anybody, nor do I want to feel used. I think thats a horrible feeling. But I also feel, that a gift is a spiritual connection, and if someone does not appreciate a gift, for example, and even re-gifts it, thats just sad. Especially if someone sees you playing with their heart, and you make excuses instead of being accountable.
Anyway, I don’t know why I feel this way, maybe this is why I serve God, with all I can, because I know I cannot repay Him, for who He is, and what He did on that cross. For me personally. His life was a gift. I don’t want God to feel like I am using Him.
And these false messages, that take part truth do remind me of that, with the prosperity message, like it promotes only using God, and that is so wrong. To me it is.
But I try and serve Him, so He knows, I am thankful. I serve Him, in HIS KJV truth, so He knows I am trying to obey Him. His gift of life is too precious to let it be only about the prosperity message, or to think even His grace is sufficient, when I know, I could make a difference.
But I will try, I will try with all my being. I will try to repay Him. I will try to stand in His truth. I will try…..
To give Love. I will try to obey, and warn others. I will try to serve Him, and never be ashamed to be called a Christian. I just want to be strong in His truth, and nothing else. I want to be aware of the enemies antics, and avoid the lies. The deception. I want nothing to do with it. I don’t want anything that separates me from God.
But there is something in my heart, that wants to at least, keep His KJV word, in love and obedience.
I just see the difference, between false word, and false prophets, and if I can spare someone, and at least give them that, to know truth, then maybe, just maybe, my life, will bring glory to God. And maybe just maybe, they can repent, return to God, and see the difference themselves, from false word, and false prophets. So they can avoid the deception.
Bottom line, if they do not use a KJV they are a false prophet to me. Sorry if this offends anybody, but thats the way I see it. I won’t argue about it, or try to convince anybody.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I know it is a little longer then most of my “Just my Thoughts.” Feel free to share this, if you agree with my thoughts. If not, oh well.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
When I write these posts “Just My Thoughts” or anything I write I usually do it with the goal to help someone, including myself. Writing is an outlet, a way to express myself, that sometimes I am at a loss of words to speak.
But when I write, I usually write from experience. I mean who wants to listen to someone who does not understand, really what is happening, or who wants to listen to someone who may not even have the experience in some matters. I do have that understanding in anger.
After all, I am a warrior. In many ways, I fight. I fight, for what is right, and I fight for survival. I fight, if I have to fight. But in that I have also seen anger rise up in me. I have seen a side of me, that has lost control. And actually that is not a very pretty sight for anybody. Because one can say, or do things, that are irreversible. One can make some mistakes, that after the fact, will show no self-control. And regret.
Regret, is a terrible thing to have, even if you feel God forgives you. Even if someone else forgives you. Because if you have no self-control. You see yourself, the error of not having self-control, and it will grieve you. I have been grieved.
And you need self-control. You need to let the peace of God really rule your heart. You cannot have that without Jesus. Seriously.
I understand this. I understand the anger in me any way. I may not understand your anger. But I understand, how hurt, pain, sorrow, no resolution to issues, can affect your spirit. In anger. Anger if not checked, can grow, and fester into a fire, that becomes out of control.
So you need to know yourself. But more then anything you need to know Jesus. You need to know what He says about anger, and you need to know if you do not fix this even at a moment like this, where you are maybe at some peace, but you recognize the characteristic in you. It could get out of control. You want to be able to see it, stop it even now, and prevent anger.
The thing with anger, and I have seen that in myself, is that something very trivial can set it off. Spilled milk. Seriously, self control has to see the symptoms, to stop it. To give it to God.
Yesterday, I was angry, for a moment. Frustrated, and I cried out to God. Please help me. Because I have been dealing with something that has made me angry, for a very long time. But I have been hiding it. And yes, I have been dealing with it, but it could have gotten very out of control yesterday, but it did not. I thank God.
I do not want it to be expressed in anger. I want it to be expressed knowing God has an answer. That peace, will rule my heart. That I have control, because of who Christ is in me. Just that cry out to God, helped me. Because I realized, I need Him. I surrendered myself to Him. To His authority, to His ways. To His truth, and love. And the anger passed. And to His glory, something happened, I got hope in this matter.
I want to encourage you. Because I know who Christ is. And there is nothing too big, or too small for Him to handle. He wants to help you. But you have to let go of that pride, or anger, or self-will that says, I don’t need Him in this. You do. Believe me, you do. We all need Him. I don’t care who you think you are. Those attributes you may have, or those characteristics that have been a part of any kind of success, you may have, can be gone. So you need God.
He is the only one who can change our hearts, our minds, our souls, our spirits. Whatever it is friend, He can resolve it for you. It may not even be in your time, but if you do your part, to begin the process, you will see the progress. HE sees us, HE knows we need Him. But we have to do the calling on Him. He is the King of Kings, and Lord, of Lords. He has the ability, we just have to submit to Him.
I hope this helps someone. I truly believe the Lord has me writing this for someone, who is so on the verge of exploding, that the consequences could be detrimental to your health, to your well being, to someone you love, or even your career. Don’t let the devil have his way in this.
Yes, we are all entitled to be angry, now and then, but in that anger, be careful it does not turn into sin. Or you go to sleep with anger, there are reasons why God warns us not to do that.
BE YE ANGRY AND SIN NOT: LET NOT THE SUN GO DOWN UPON YOUR WRATH: EPHESIANS 4:26.
Give it to God, even now. Give Him your anger, and sin not. He will help you.
Blessings, and love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez
CHECK OUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG:
So obviously, the Lord is teaching me something, maybe you too, by my writings.
But yesterday, the Lord showed me the root of bitterness, that can be planted in our hearts, when we have unforgiveness, or hate, bitterness in our hearts. We cannot let it remain. We cannot let it take over our hearts.
How can we grow to be who we should be in Christ if we allow these things? Look at my previous post, for more insight.
Anyway, so I pulled out that root. I pulled it out, uncaring, and yes even cold in my spirit. But for a moment there, I almost forgot, to repent, humble myself before God, and to ask for forgiveness myself.
Why? Because God says He will not forgive me, if I do not forgive others. How we can forget. I am a seasoned Christian, yet we do forget. We can let the “old” ways back in, we are new in Christ, but if we allow the old ways back in, we have to start all over.
Symbolism. Remember the people of God, walked around Israel for 40 years? I don’t want to do that. I can’t not at this place of my life. I am tired of not making progress, or making the same mistakes over again.
So, this morning, in this lesson of life, Christ reminded me of what He said on the cross before He gave His life for you and me. He said. Forgive them, for they know not what they do.
THEN SAID JESUS, FATHER, FORGIVE THEM; FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO. AND THEY PARTED HIS RAIMENT, AND CAST LOTS. Luke 23:34.
These are very profound words from our Lord. Not just words, that remind us of what they did, but what we all did to put Christ on that cross for our sins. We sin!
Its our nature, we are all born into sin, but we don’t have to die from it. We can be renewed, we can be healed, we can be made whole and clean, from what Christ did.
But how can we if we do not know what we do? This again, is why I so implore people to use a King James Bible because the anointing and holiness is so important in word. And it has been changed, and people use bad versions, not knowing what they do, and that it has been corrupted.
There has been a build up, so to speak in my heart, as I deal with Christians, who want to fight about truth. Even about this, my calling to warn others about these bad bibles. With friends, who abandoned me. Burned me, used me, and even with those who I love, but again, they do not support me. And my calling. Sure once in a while they are inspired, but where is the support and love?
Something started growing, in my heart and it was not good.
Its not about me, its about Gods word, truth, and message. And sometimes well, the messenger is ignored. O.k. I get that. Am I glad to say it? No.
But, the truth is people, cannot respond to something you know, but they do not. And I do know this……that which I talk about concerning the King James Bible.
So Christ reminded me. “Forgive them, for they know not what they do and do not do.” FORGIVE!
I thought I was. But it was growing in me. It was a part of me, as I try to do the Lords work, and it gets in the way.
The thing though, shouldn’t I know better as well? Yes, but like yesterday, in my coldness, as I threw away that root. I almost did it without repenting, humble before God. I saw that in myself. Maybe someone read the message, before I edited it, but I did not include repenting. And I have to be honest. When I saw that, I rewrote it.
Well, because I live with myself, and I so dedicate my writings to being honest, and even here, I have to forgive myself. As I forgive others. But I repent first. Because my actions do not mean anything unless I take it all to the throne of God.
Sometimes, you see people, and you think in a lot of things….. They should know better. They should not do what they do. Like in the matters of loving, being kind, compassionate, supportive, etc. Or just knowing truth, from His holy word. This is fruit from Christ. But where is it?
But look what they did to Christ. And even though, they crucified Him. He forgave. Because He understands. He gave His life. Knowing this…
We know not what to do without Him, and that is the truth of the matter.
Lesson to be learned, you cannot do it on your own. It requires Gods help. Or you will make the same mistakes over, and over again. Only He can truly change a heart. To know.
So yes forgive….But let me remind you, a time of forgiving will run out.
Someday the mercy and grace of God will stop. It will be a time for judgement. It will be a time to open the books in heaven. So if we know that, yes forgive, but for the sake of all of our souls. Let us obey God now! Because some day, it will be too late to forgive.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
Did you know that whisper, you hear, is the Holy Spirit, telling you to repent, when you have a guilty conscience?
Did you know there is a danger, a spiritual danger, when you have not made Christ your Lord, and savior, and you listen to your own understanding, and you do not trust or incline unto God to guide you, in that sense of conscience?
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. PROVERBS 3:5. KING JAMES
Atheists don’t recognize it, even some Christians don’t recognize that whisper, people who are rebellious will not see it, or hear it, but if you know whose voice it is, you will consider it, and consider it as truth.
You need to repent. We all do. And I even recommend daily. Because daily, we can miss His voice, if we are not in tune to God.
You see, God instilled that voice in all of us. He each gave us a conscience. But what you do with that conscience, will either be your growth to fruit, or it will become your destruction.
And no doubt about it, you do have to make a choice. You see, God will speak to you, He wants to woo you. He wants you to know Him. He wants to love you, and have fellowship with you. He wants to be your friend. He wants to heal you. He wants to ensure you have a place with Him when you die, and leave this earth. But the choice is up to you.
That guilty conscience, is telling you, over and over again. My son, my daughter, you did wrong. You are not thinking clearly. But let me cleanse you. Let me take that sin. Let me, help you grow. Let me, give you my mind, so you can have a sense of direction. Let me give you peace. Let me comfort you. Let your mind be at ease with me. This is why I give you my King James Bible, to give you instruction.
But He God, our Lord, is a gentleman. He never, ever pushes Himself on us. But if we do not listen, that voice will depart. The Holy spirit will leave. Because God though He loves us, will not be in the midst of our sins, or our disobedience. He is Holy.
But I have to warn you, be aware to know whose voice it is. You have to know the difference between conviction and condemnation. The voice of Christ will convict you. To warn you, to guide you, to love you. But He will not condemn you.
Condemnation comes from the enemy. It will tell you there is no hope. It will tell you give up! Don’t listen to that voice, don’t fall for the defeat that their is no hope. There always is with God.
You know, God has spoken to me so many times. And I have learned to hear His voice. And I am able to distinguish between His voice, and the enemies. He says, we will know His voice, and to another we will not follow.
TO HIM THE PORTER OPENETH; AND THE SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE; AND HE CALLETH HIS OWN SHEEP BY NAME, AND LEADETH THEM OUT. AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM: FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM: FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS. JOHN 10:3-5. King James.
I recommend reading all of chapter ten of John from a King James just to get a sense of His voice.
Gods voice is patient. Gods voice is love. But Gods voice, has standards, that need to be acknowledged, in fear of Him. Because the consequences, is sin, and death.
And this is the enemies voice, it is prideful, it is lying, and it is mean spirited. It is in denial. And yes rebellion. Because the enemy, does not want you to meet your potential in Christ. It wants you to self-destruct.
Some think they are going crazy, literally, but if you heed my Fathers instruction, you will see the difference.
For with Christ it is love, and life eternally. And how much sweeter it is, even here on earth, knowing His voice, guides me. It protects me.
It warns me, at a moments notice. I may get that gut feeling, and I know, that I know that I know, when I am wrong. I know instruction. I know when I obey, it goes well. If I do not listen to that whisper, I miss it. When I am wrong when I do not obey. I see the future, for we will reap what we sow, without repentance.
I know when I insist on my own way. Or when I am only thinking about me, and not someone else. When I do not listen. And I have to repent. He tells me when I am wrong. It just does not sit well with my spirit, when I am “guilty.”
So many times, when truth is presented, if we are not in a good position, with God, we will not hear that voice. In fact, the more you rebel against that sweet sound of truth, the further, and further you will get from God. It will be like an echo, that will fade, like in a tunnel.
It will make you cold, it will make you indifferent, it will steal your sense, of right and wrong, and you will become like an animal. An animal that is possessed, by a devil, that will “instruct” you to do that which is wrong, with no sense, to know, you are hurting yourself, and maybe others. It will blind you, and you won’t even know. It will deceive you.
See, God is a spirit, and when we worship God, we have to worship Him, in spirit and in truth, so we always have to be aware of the whisper, we listen to in our conscience. (see John 4:24, King James only)
For it will either be good or evil. Have you ever seen a commercial, where there is an angel on one shoulder or a devil on the other? The goal, is to defeat that devil and allow God to take the place of that devil. And even here, I will say know whose voice you listen to. Because there are many counterfeits, and false voices. Not all angels are good angels….
If you do not know Gods voice, you will get cold. You will be deceived. Your heart, will become indifferent, stony, and even deaf.
Dear friend, do not let that voice, that sense of being cold, control you. Do not let it cause you to self-destruct. Or to hurt someone else.
When I was growing up, when I did things that were wrong. I saw how they “controlled” me. Like smoking, it made me smoke, I craved it. Yet I saw, how it hurt me. I became weak, physically, lazy, and well we all know smoking is bad. But when you are caught up in any sin, it will control you.
I hated that, in fact, I still hate anything that is not of God, because it is sin. I don’t want anything to control me. But God. So, I am glad I listened to that small voice, and obeyed God, I asked God, take this desire away from me. And He did. He did it for my mom, and she told me how to ask God, and to obey. I did.
But He took it further, and got me to see the root of all my sins. For you see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; Romans 3:23 King James.
So if you think you are o.k. you don’t need God, think again. Maybe your conscience is so full of “pride” another characteristic of the devil, that you think, you are fine, without God, think again. Because we will all bow before God. We will all confess Jesus as Lord, when we stand before Him. Don’t let even that pride, confuse you. Because you will reap what you sow, even now, on earth. But after life, there is hell, and you do not want that for your future.
You see, right now, even as I am prompted to write. I know God wants you to hear Him. I have learned to obey God. I have learned to run to that sweet voice, to receive counsel. By going to my King James Bible, and to my Lord in prayer. Because it is truth. Even writing this, is by sweet counsel of the Holy spirit, because God wants to reach you.
Friend, I just have a strong sense, that if you deny this, that what I have wrote already, that you are rebellious, and even when friends, or family tell you the truth, you always have to feel like you have to challenge it, you have to fight the truth, because you think they may be judging you. You reject it.
I see it myself with others, who do not see the truth, but think it is judgment. We are called to warn one another. So I warn you, be careful with that voice you hear. Be careful, with what sense of right and wrong you use to navigate your way in life. A good moral conscience, can only be clear, when Jesus, is that sense of right and wrong.
Please, listen to God, go to Him, don’t be ashamed, to listen to your whisper of a conscience. It is God calling you. Go to His throne. Kneel before Him, tell Him you are sorry. Perhaps tell someone else you are sorry, cleanse that pride, let Christ embrace you.
Did you know apologizing, to someone, will bless you? Because you are then letting God speak to you. He tells us to forgive, but we have to sometimes ask for it.
Let Him record, your repentance and humbleness before Him, so His voice will be stronger. Get a good King James bible, and daily seek Him. Friend, the whisper, will never leave when it is Christ. You will always know His voice, to have the mind of Christ.
Much love, and blessings, Elena Ramirez

It is a sin. To take Gods holy word, copy it, and then use it, for a foundation, to build another Bible version, from that. This is plagiarism.
There is no other way to look at it. For we have been warned in the King James Bible, over and over again, do not change, add, or delete anything from it. So that, when disregarded, has become disobedience. And disobedience is sin.
You don’t have to be a scholar of the Bible to comprehend that. Or someone with a doctorate in religious studies. You just don’t. You take something, that has been established, and preserved for four hundred years, and see, that God stored it, preserved it, and when publishers, have taken that main lump, and then changed it, the plagiarism is evident.
Years ago, and I did not quite understand as well as I do now, but God began teaching me, how important obedience is, how important, being truthful, and honest is. I suppose He was also testing me.
I guess, I had issues. In fact, I know I did, being in denial, one can easily go there, when not given the correct instruction, or knowledge, to comprehend a matter. My past, my sins, are evidence to this. But God did not leave me that way, and I am grateful for my salvation, and for what Christ did on that cross to set me free.
I have learned, to get to the root of things now. I don’t waste my time, trying to understand peoples intentions, or why they act the way they do, in a good or a bad matter. I just sometimes see, what was the end result, and why it happened. Why scratch at the surface, when you can get to the root of the matter? We need a moral compass. The King James is a moral compass, that is not broken.
Sin, in any form of our lives, hurts us. It gives the enemy a legal right to attack any of us. So trying to get to the root of why something happened, tells me in simple terms. That the enemy, who we know comes, to kill, steal, and destroy, had his evil hands on something, so it affected someone else.
But I plead the blood of Jesus.
We have to want to grow. We have to want to learn, that which is right in the sight of God. We have to have fear of God. We have to see there are consequences to disobedience.
When God began teaching me how important it is to be obedient, He took me to the root of the matter, and gave me an example.
It was about ten years ago. I was then writing my poetry, which is also called a Prayer of Hope. I have hundreds of poetry pages, that I would write, here on the internet…..
I had learned to create web pages, which was unheard of then practically, but I learned html. Creating code, for my pages. My attempts were very humble in their presentation, not fancy, but I still learned it. So I could list my poems.
One day, it was brought to my attention, that someone had copied, my writings, and was trying to make themselves look like the writer. By eliminating my name, or my copyrights.
They assumed, in the presentation, that people would recognize them as the author. This is called Plagiarism. It is illegal, in the United States, and it is illegal in the sight of God.
And for the record, not ethical, moral, or honest. How can we be right in the sight of God, unless we strive for truth?
Yet, with technology, as it is, it is very easy, to take someones writings, from a computer, and copy and paste information, to “deceive” someone. Do you see that word, I use deceive?
Well, when this happened, I ran to God in prayer, so sad, so hurt, that someone would do this to me. And God comforted me. I felt His compassion, and He told me then, this is how I feel, when the devil takes my Holy word, and makes people think he is the author.
I did not understand that. What was I missing? Yet I was grateful for his kindness. For I just had a sense, that He would keep me covered in that, and protect me and my writings….but what could I do for him? Then He began revealing to me, the corruption of His holy word. Little by little.
I began getting a sense of what He was talking about when He began revealing to me, how His holy word, had been plagiarized by these publishers for money, and how the enemy, had caused these people to be disobedient, and change Gods holy word, for the sake of money.
By making the excuse of claiming the translation, would be easier to comprehend. He told me, these versions, bring a spirit of confusion.
He also showed me that the pastors that did this, should know better, but were in disobedience, for the people trust the truth to be truth from the pulpit. But it is not.
This is so Wrong! This is wrong, in the sight of God. For if you know your King James Bible, which has been around for 400 years, one could see, the many, warnings God gives. Do not change His word. Period. It is disobedience.
There is a spirit, that is attached to this disobedience. That brings confusion, and brings a distortion of Gods holy word, that changes, the anointing and holiness, to corruption. This is the enemies intention. So when people read another Bible version, they are not reading or seeing and hearing the voice of Father God. They are hearing a voice, that has disobeyed God, and that voice has changed the wording so much so, that the original content, has been misplaced in context. The enemies intention is to distort that. This is the enemies voice. That has made him, the evil one the author of these compromised, changed, and corrupted bible versions. Now I understand. God had me get to the root of it.
So yes, it is a sin, to use any other version, that has been compromised, and corrupted. They were created in sin, and the spirit, in which they instruct does not come from God. Because they disobeyed God. Remember, God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Whenever, I look at a bible verse now, I can pretty much see, if it is a King James or if it has been compromised. I have learned, to hear my fathers voice, and to another, I will not follow. When someone gives me a scripture reference. I immediately reject it, if it is not a King James scripture. Because they are corrupt. They are part truth, but part lie. They are corrupted in disobedience, that brings sin.
So when someone writes, and they list scriptures, I do look and see, with discernment and prayer, as to what they are writing if it is truth.
Plagiarism, is a sin, in any form. Did you know the King James bible has no copy rights? But all the other bible versions do? Why? They do it, to protect themselves. For they know themselves, they took that lump, and plagiarized Gods holy word, but now they want the copyrights for themselves. What deception that is.
God is not the author of confusion. But these versions are confusing, because the anointing, and holiness is gone. People using these versions, are receiving a spirit of confusion, not truth. For the truth has been changed. They have changed the voice. It is no longer the voice of the Holy spirit. Remember the Holy spirit, is holy, and cannot be in something that is of sin.
I write this post, because recently someone I love, gave me something to ponder on. They were not King James scriptures, and the Lord showed me, this person, had copied something from someone else, to make a point. I did not confront this person, with this truth to accuse, but extended love. And grace.
But I see, even in that example, how can we trust someone, if they cannot see the deception in doing something like this? If they think it is o.k. to make themselves look good, by presenting something they did not write, yet it is deceptive. It is plagiarism, to do that. To not truly identify the writer. And it is a sin. And only repentance, sets us free. Because God does not condone sin.
With all my faults, I can say with a clear conscience, I do not plagiarize anyone. My writings, are what they are. With sometimes grammar, that may not make sense, or with an abundance of commas, in punctuation.
But they are mine. I am not perfect. But I do not try and deceive someone to think something that is not based on a King James scripture. Or to steal even a thought. Yes I am inspired by some. But I will not try and get the credit for something I did not write.
I will stand before my God. Knowing this truth, now, as much as I do, and I cannot with a clear conscience write anything, to share, knowing God sees everything we do, and how we even search for Him, and His truth.
And He does not condone and accept these bibles. I don’t believe so. I know He does not, because they are not His writings. It is not His voice. I don’t judge someones salvation. God knows who is His.
But if we do not get to the root of why the body of Christ is in such disarray, in such confusion, we are a part of the disobedience. And I don’t want that in my own personal life. Or yours. Why should I care?
Because I see, from the root, of how it all began, that the enemy, wanted Gods glory. And he wanted to destroy that which was the plan of God, and for mankind. Christ came gave His life for us, but if we do not see the enemies antics in even such a matter as being on the same page with God, this is disobedience.
And just an added thought, did you ever stop to consider that I tell my brothers and sisters in Christ this truth, because I do love God, and I do love my brothers and sisters, and I want to warn them of the dangers of these bibles? Love does not with hold truth. We all talk about love, but we really cannot find Jesus, without truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6. And that is love, and that is truth…..I am trying to help them find the way. I am trying to help them find Jesus by His ways….
If we partake in disobedience, and again, this is why I will not attend a church, where the body gathers together, to hear a corrupted word. Because there is deception in these bibles. The body of Christ, is not where it should be, with God. And especially because we are in end times. We do not use anointed Bibles, together, to be in unity with Christ.
So how can we trust Bibles, that God has not written? Why would any of us want to use something with missing scriptures, and the true holiness, and anointing gone? Why?
Friends, I write this, just to ask you, are you using a bible, that comes from sin?
This is my prayer today, that I wrote on my post, and another ministers page:
My prayer is that God would be glorified. That people would see the sin of corrupted Bible versions. And get on the same page with God. By using the King James bible. I plead the blood of Jesus in this prayer. Thats how important it is to me.
FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK. IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK: AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. REVELATION 22:18-19.
Invite me to your church or ladies group, so I can share my thoughts, to encourage you, to inspire you, to know Jesus through the King James Bible.
