SARCASM MOCKERY ARE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PHARISEE CHRISTIAN BEWARE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2I suppose I am writing this, because I detect this. Its as if it is a red flag to me. A warning sign, to be careful.  I sense it, when I see sarcasm, and mockery, for they can turn even the best intending Christian, into a Pharisee.

Do you remember the Pharisees, in relation to Jesus?

They upheld the law, but their religion, rules regulations, traditions made by them, could not accept Christ in His love, and in His truth. He was rejected. So much so, it was they who called him to be crucified. Yet it was the plan of God.

What you saw in them was sarcasm. Mockery, characteristics, religious tendencies, that hit people on the head, shot others with arrows, that identified, they were Pharisees.

So, I want to talk to my fellow Christian brothers and sisters. Not to the unsaved, for they do not have the spirit of Christ. But to those who have accepted Christ as their Lord and savior. For those who have come to the throne of grace, who have repented. Who have seen their own sins, who have humbled themselves, in the sight of almighty God. You have bowed before the cross, and you have accepted Christ as your Lord and savior. You realize He died for your sins.

I want to talk to you. To please beware. Of sarcasm, of mockery, of hidden disdain, that can poison your own spirit. Of strife, of lying. We are called to put off the old man. We have died with Christ, and live with Christ. So as we live, move, and have our being, our foundation is to be in love. His love.

In truth.

And sarcasm, mockery, has no place, for it then becomes idolatry, in a sense. For you are turning away from what Christ has called us to do, to walk in love, and you are embracing an idol, that is not Christ. This can pollute and taint your spirit. Beware….

I have seen religion all my life. I have seen people who say the are Christians, but they do as the world. They may for a time, walk in love, but then they turn, and they change, and they let their sarcasm, and spirits become polluted, with the Pharisee spirit.

To be honest, that scares me. And I know, I have come very close to it myself. But repentance my friend, is what has saved me. To identify it. To be aware of it. To walk away from it.

And yes, even to walk away from some I have loved. I see it symbolically. We are all marching in an army. As soldiers of the Lord, but if you sense your brother or sister, is throwing arrows, rocks, behind your back, as you march, aiming at you in sarcasm, you cannot trust that brother or sister in Christ.

Yes, we are called to forgive. But when I sense there is no true accountability, no repentance, I cannot trust a brother or a sister, who displays these fruits of the spirit, that are not of love. But come from a dark side, a side, that comes from the enemy himself.

We are to test and try each other, and to be a better example. I pray, you would just be aware of this. That you would see it yourself. Because it can come to any of us, so easily, if we are not walking in our Lords love, and wisdom. And making that conscience effort to depart from such things.

It tried to follow Christ, even to the cross. But His silence, even on the cross, spoke volumes to me. In Mark 15 of the KJV, it talks about how the Pharisees, the Romans, and the people who crucified, Christ, mocked, laughed, and how he silently refused the myrrh, that was given to him to drink. Water that was polluted. He rejected that. He was silent. But only in prayer to the father. Asking God, why have you forsaken me. Scripture in Mark 15:29, says

AND THEY THAT PASSED BY RAILED ON HIM, WAGGING THEIR HEADS, AND SAYING AH, THOU THAT DESTROYEST THE TEMPLE, AND BUILDEST IT IN THREE DAYS. SAVE THYSELF, AND COME DOWN FROM THE CROSS.

Are you mocking someone, who is holding up the cross, who is trying to serve the Lord?

Look I understand we do not all agree, we do not have the same callings. And yes, we may even debate, or argue.  But should we?  

For sarcasm is ugly.  And we must have wisdom to understand, we are all different.  Remember, get that check in your spirit, thats just it we are all different. We are all on the vine, with Christ in different stages. What I know, you may not know. What you know, I may not know. But we should never have a spirit of “I am better then you.” Or a spirit that tries to puff itself up.

We must always have love, front and center, even if we do not always have spiritual understanding, of some things. Or matters that are KJV biblical. But if you let sarcasm, be your focus, you will lose something very precious and great in this matter.

You will truly lose the understanding of what Christ did for you on that cross. Please, never take that for granted. No matter what you do.

Do not take it for granted. I hope you see this, and you will understand, you are only hurting yourself. And you may be hurting someone else, who could learn from you, but instead, they are seeing the Pharisee spirit.

Feel free to share this with other brothers and sisters in Christ, who you may need to minister to.  But please do it in love.  Not sarcasm.  

You see, we all sin, we all come short of our Lords glory.  All of us. 

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

KNOWING THE DANGER OF ANGER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2112

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

Loving God, with all our hearts, soul, and mind, is a commandment.  But if you love your sin more then loving God, you are not free.

Oh you may fool yourself, and think you are saved.  But God wants all of our obedience.  Not lip service, or fake worship, etc. 

See, I know, because I used to walk the fence, when it came to God and my sins.  My excuse was I was young, and I wanted to have fun.  Well I reaped that.  I reaped the heartache, of not giving my all to Christ.  

Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them: he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.  Jeremiah 14:10 King James.  

That actually scares me, and enough to obey.  Because we do reap what we sow into our lives.  

But I do now, I choose to obey and I am careful not to compromise my walk with the Lord.  Its not worth it!

When I think of what Christ did for me, and for me to repeat my sins…..

Well for cleansing, and a guarantee of my salvation it hurts my heart to know my sins put Him on that cross.  I repented, and still repent to be honest, daily, because every day, we are challenged by the enemy.  Its his job to deceive any of us.  To steal our crowns.

And he does.  But if you know truth, Gods holy word, the King James bible, you have armor, that has no kinks in it, no loopholes, it protects you.  No soft spots.  To penetrate you.  No temptation too great, God removes that.  But you have your part.  

You can quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  

But getting into that King James bible, and disciplining yourself to do it, is what brings the wisdom, knowledge, insight, and yes fear of God.  Prayer, oh how sweet it is to run to the throne of God.  

Because when a Christian says they love God, but continue in sin, they have no fear of God, and they love the sin more.  The consequences of that is death.  Its spiritual death.  And even physical.  Because you become cold.  No moral compass.  And worse then that, denial into the Kingdom of God, when you die.  Who wants that for their destiny?  No thank you. 

Its pathetic, for any of us.  But mercy and grace, what a blessing that is, but you cannot abuse it.  You cannot.  Time, it runs out.  Oh if I could go back, I would.  But I cannot.  I can only do what I can at the place that I am, to warn others, and for myself to be ever so careful.  

I don’t want to love my sins.  I don’t want to offend my God.  I don’t want to take advantage of grace.  Grace is not an excuse to sin.  I do not want to give place to the enemy by my own stupid choices, of sin.  No wonder we reap the consequences.  It is purposed disobedience.  

Oh I am not perfect.  I know it.  But I will hold onto the sword of truth with all my might.  I will run to the throne of grace, and I will try and obey.  Trying….is better then not even acknowledging this.  

The body of Christ, has been taught some nonsense, because I never hear any teachings on the fear of God.  But if a pastor, will not remind the body, as a shepherd, the sheep will not know.  Because they don’t search themselves.  It is the blind leading the blind.  

Search for God, and it requires leaving that sin, and searching for this love that only God gives.  Nothing else is worth it.  

My thought for today, I pray, just to be near Jesus.  

After a spiritual battle with another so called Christian today, who thinks Halloween is o.k.  I just want to get the battle behind me, for Christ has me covered by the blood of Jesus.  I will not give place to the enemy in this holiday.  And I have my armor on.  To claim the promises.  Of God.  

 Blessings, and love,

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

I feel led to get to the root of this dilemma, and just call it for what it is. But humbled myself, I need to say it, because God Himself corrected me. So, may my learning, also bring light.

But I do give God glory, and even here publicly, I thank God. I thank God almighty my Lord and savior, Father, Son our Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I thank Him, for who He loves He corrects.

Recently, I have been just having a sense within, how much God hates sin. And I hate it too. I hate what it has done to me, stolen so many of my blessings. Yet little by little, I see, how He restores, and heals, and yes blesses. But it has made me open my eyes! We reap what we sow. Do you remember the people of God, and how their murmuring and complaining, made them wander for 40 years?

I think I have done that too. My sins, separated me from God, and I have been a strong believer for at least 30 years, but I pray, the curses are broken.

So, I write this, and explain, this right away, because today, I got a revelation in correction. “When Christians Accept Secret Sin.” I believe God taught me something this very, morning.

HE WILL SURELY REPROVE YOU, IF YE DO SECRETLY ACCEPT PERSONS. JOB 13:10.

When I read it this morning, in my time of seeking God….It came alive. It shouted to me, I felt a very strong sense of it. I thought about it, and I saw how things are. How we as Christians, do not want to stir the pot sometimes. And I understood it, in its meaning. But for a second there, I thought, I don’t do that do I? Or would I be known as judging?

Just to clarify something, we need to see as Christians, and call it out for what it is. We cannot accept sin, and even in other brothers and sisters, and not warn them. Ezekiel 3:19 and also Ezekiel 33, talks about warning one another. So knowing that, God got very specific with me, and showed me the error of my ways.

YET IF THOU WARN THE WICKED, AND HE TURN NOT FROM HIS WICKEDNESS, NOR FROM HIS WICKED WAY, HE SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY; BUT THOU HAST DELIVERED THY SOUL. Ezekiel 3:19.

Now this scripture is for the righteous, or who thinks they are righteous yet…. who openly sins, or promotes sin. And so who are you, if you see your friend sinning, or even an acquaintance, and you don’t say anything?

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

(Read all of this chapter from a King James Bible.) And if you ever needed a scripture to show Salvation can be lost this is it. Please note it.

There is a lady on FB who is a friend of mine. (Name with held to protect) Now I love this lady, she has always had the sweetest spirit with me, and is kind, encouraging. I have even given her my book, that I wrote. “How to Have Faith.” Information is listed above for purchase.

Anyway, in my book, I have talked often, about getting a good King James Bible, that it is imperative, to us as believers. This is my calling, to talk about it, to help other believers, get on the right path. To get answers in prayer, to get faith, to please God. To see, this is disobedience if we use something that is corrupt. Many of you know my stance on this. I will not waver on it.

Yet, I accepted this in her behavior….from her as sin. For I have never confronted her. I have always seen her sharing scriptures, and they were not King James. Yet…..I was silent. And have not said anything, up until today.

You see, I am always it seems in a battle, with people, over my belief, and what gets me, is that I have even been in battles with other Christians. Who say they are Christians, and they defend, sin. To me, they become a pawn of the devil, when you see some of these battles, that should be clear, in truth, but they are not.

Today, as well, as another example, a woman on social media, was defending, homosexuality, and yet says she is a believer in God. I told her straight out, she was pawn of the enemy, and needed to stop defending this sin. I told her to repent. Because she is going against the word of God. She is contradicting herself, and I told her that is not a good side to be on. God does not lose battles. And we will all will stand before God, and be judged.  

Was it easier to tell her, opposed to my friend.  Because she was a stranger?  I don’t know, all I know is I have to be obedient to God.  

Christ died for our sins. Yes, we love the sinner, but we hate the sin. God loves her as well, but any one of us, reaps what we sow. Like I did, in my early years. Sin hurts us. And just an added thought, but have we no fear of God? There are consequences. And you do not want to be on the wrong side without God…..

Repentance clears the slate.  Obedience keeps the devil away!  Why? because you are submitting to God.

So anyway, my friend, who I love listed a scripture from the Mess bible. (I know, I purposely call it that) And something rose up in me, I know it was the Holy spirit, and the Lord told me, tell her, tell your friend and warn her. So I did. I wrote her, and privately messaged her, and told her I loved her, but why was she using a Bible that was corrupt? I asked her if she did not read my book? Or the many posts I share on this subject? She has not answered yet. But I pray, she sees the error of this.

So I ask all of you….do you accept sin in other people? Do you not have the unction to say something to warn them? But perhaps like me, you do not want to get into a debate or an argument. And especially with someone you love. It could be with a friend, or even a family member. We know its wrong. We know this sin, or something our friend, does goes against Gods word, but do we accept it? Not wanting to fight. Not wanting to be that guy or gal? So we stay silent….

You see, I have learned this of myself. If we accept sin, in ourselves, it is easy to accept sin in others. Yes, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God. No doubt about it. And judging, we know thats wrong. But we are called to judge righteously. And we are called to warn each other. Don’t ever lose sight of that. This is a spiritual battle. We have to help one another.

And I think even now, in the times we are in. You may even see it as well. There are so many….Wolves in sheeps clothing. Defending the wrong. I have seen so much of it. Just when you are trying to be comforting, to someone with Gods truth, and liars, come out, and they say they are Christians, yet defend the devil and his lies. You need to see this, if you are on the wrong side.

Now I am not saying my friend is going to go that far, but if any of us are deceived, we can easily become a pawn of the enemy. This is why I write this to convict you. Because I got convicted….

To help you see, yes we are all short of the glory of God. But we can become true soldiers of the Lord. We can speak truth. We can, and we should warn one another. Times are calling for it.

So today, God corrected me. Today, God gave me utterance. Today, God used me effectively. And I see it. Like I said, I hate sin, and what it did to me. I hate, how my life has not prospered in some ways. I hate always missing out on some things, because I did not do the right thing. I tell you this with tears in my eyes. Don’t let sin, hinder you! I tell you because Jesus loves you. Yes He loves me too. But I blew it years ago….I don’t ever know if I will fully recover but I messed up royally….

We may not want to offend anybody, or anyone. But if we do not tell people the truth, the King James truth, we are not honoring God. We are not true Christians. We are not serving one another in love. This one scripture made me see the error of my ways. What do you see? Do you accept sin, and just say oh well, live and live?

Or do you say, friend, let me tell you what the word of God says from my King James bible. Please repent. Please see this. I want you to be in heaven when we all stand before God.

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

Wisdom, where does it come from?  The scriptures tell us that the fear of God, is the beginning of knowledge.  But where do we learn knowledge to be wise?  By first fearing God.

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE: BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION.  Proverbs 1:7.

I probably cannot even count the conversations I have had with people, who have denied the fear of God.  Where they have argued, that they do not fear God, and they probably think I am nuts.  But I don’t care.  

I know, it is a good thing, a healthy thing to fear God.  I attribute it to keeping me out of trouble.

Yet, as I contemplate this, I know as a writer, I know why I embrace the fear of God.  For I am a truth seeker, and as a truth seeker I must seek His truth, not mine, not mans, not other preachers, not the worlds…..

Because God is mighty, powerful, and it is all established according to His ways, His truth, His view point.  Not mine, or anyone else.  I must seek His will to please Him.  

I admit, I have the fear of God, because I know my life, is in His hands.  My soul is also in His hands, and He has the right and power to let me into heaven, and I do not want any consequences of hell.

BUT I WILL FOREWARN YOU WHOM YE SHALL FEAR: FEAR HIM, WHICH AFTER HE HATH KILLED HATH POWER TO CAST INTO HELL: YEA, I SAY UNTO YOU, FEAR HIM.  Luke 12:5

So I want His protection.  At a moments notice, for anything.  I don’t want to give the enemy a legal right to attack.  More then anything I do not want to displease God.  So, I trust the fear of God, to be my guard.  It can make a difference at a moments notice.  And I do rely on God, for His promises.  But I must not distort, or change, or add to His truth, so this is why I am afraid of God, in anything I do for God.  

I do not hear or see the fear of God taught, by anyone.  And that makes me sad.  Because many in the body of Christ need to know it, to understand it.  But where do we learn?  But from God Himself.  

So what do I do?  I obey even in my writing…..but what is based on?  My thoughts, or Gods thoughts?  It must be Gods thoughts!  

So, I must seek a Holy, and true word, a word that has not been compromised, changed, added to, or deleted.  The purest of words at least that is available in this time and place.  I choose a King James Holy word, for it has been preserved for 400 years.  I do not seek other versions for understanding of words, for I know the Holy spirit is my teacher.  I know the Holy spirit will bring understanding.  

KNOWING THIS FIRST, THAT NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.  II PETER 1:20

I have always wondered why people use other Bible versions, when the context has been changed, how can you search for a word in a Bible, if the word has been changed, so the content is changed.  Thereby corrupting it.

Well, as I write this though, I do want to emphasize about fearing God, and this is why I won’t use another Bible.  Because I have seen other pastors, and I have listened to them, and many who I will not name, they are lost.  Themselves, the blind, leading the blind.  

AND LET THEM ALONE: THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND.  AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH.  MATTHEW 15:14

I know, as a writer, of Gods word, I have to build a strong foundation.   Because I do not want to be blind, or lead anyone else deceptively.  If not for a Holy word. Who would believe me?  Without it?  No one.  I don’t have a charming personality, or an agenda, that is anything but to serve God.  I have never been popular.  I have been in so many fights in my life, to survive, that I know, I am nothing without God.  Sounds a little harsh, I know, but it is true in my example.  

So, the foundation I always need, to back me up is Gods Holy word.  

But I know this, because I have watched others.  

I have learned, because I have seen discrepancies in many ministries, that I need to know the truth.  I get a check in my spirit, when I hear something that takes away from the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I get a check, when people compromise truth.  Or even suggest there is not a difference in doctrine, between other religions.  I get a check in my spirit, to go to Gods word.  For it is Holy.

I don’t take what other people say, as truth.  Not till I confirm it by the word they share, that again is Holy King James word, or my own research in the scriptures.  If it is not King James word, I am sorry, but I dismiss it, because again I know scripture has been added, changed, or deleted.  Even though others have the best intention, I don’t hold it against them, but I don’t count on their truth, as truth.    

I get that check as well, because even though, I am low on the totem pole so to speak, and there are great and wonderful servants of the Lord, and I know God is not a respecter of persons, but I get that check in the fear of God, because I know many do look to me, and learn from me.  

And what does it say, if any of us, do not present the truth of the gospel, and mislead others?  Yes it is a great responsibility, no matter who we are, or where we are on the vine with Christ.  We have to be careful, what we teach, and what we say, for lives can be impacted.  

So I take it with great responsibility, as an honor, in anything I do for the Kingdom, of God.  It is His Kingdom, not mine, so this humbles me, to be ever so careful and not distort His truth.  

But in this fear again, I have, that scares me as a servant, I realize I have a great responsibility to write truth.  Gods truth.  It scares me, when I hear or read other pastors who have compromised it, and though I do not want to name them, or judge them, I judge the fruit of the deception that comes when Gods holy truth has not been presented.  

It brings curses.  It brings deception.  It brings half truth, half lies, that I want no part of.  For I see the devils ugly hand in it.  I don’t want to know any more about the devil, but what God has shown me.  In His Holy word.  And His word, has shown me, the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  

And I want to know what Christ said, what God the father said, what the Holy Spirit reveals to me.  But I know when God does show me, it is to teach me, correct me, and instruct me, as to what His ways are.  And to show me, that He comes to give life, and life abundantly.  

THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY:  I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  John 10:10  

The enemy does want to steal truth from your eyes, your heart, so you will not grow.  Do you notice the scripture says “might” have it more abundantly?  If you do not get pure word, you are taking a chance, to get it right.  You might not, but you might if you study Gods word, and apply it correctly.  Because it will prosper in that thing, and not return void!  

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

But yes, I am afraid.  For someday, I will stand before God, I pray, even now, in repentance, and humbleness,  if I have said or done anything that God will correct me, before I stand before Him.  And I ask for His mercy.  For I am not perfect.

But I take great consideration to have fear of God.  To want to do it right, to be totally focused on God, and not anybody else.  It makes me think, especially as I see how deception can come when any of us, only think of what man says, and not God.  

Friend, I seriously recommend, get a good King James Bible, and do your own research.  It will make a difference.  I pray, just to please God.  

I know many will just dismiss me or my thoughts, even here, but please don’t dismiss God.  Please don’t whoever you are, reading this.  As a warning I tell you this in love, but I tell you this as well, in fear of God, that God is not mocked.  

BE NOT DECEIVED: GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7.  

We reap what we sow.  Let us sow His truth, and receive it as well.  He sacrificed His life for us, to be free.  And by His stripes we are healed, physically and yes our souls. Read Isaiah 53:5 from a King James.  

Let us Honor Him with His truth.  

Let us not get entangled in any deception that takes away from His Holy truth.  I plead with you, to understand the fear of God.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

The spirit of anger.  It can be caught like a cold, and you may not even know you have it.  It can erupt at any time, and cause total devastation, and not only hurt you, but hurt others.

Its like a volcano, brewing, steaming, and if not watched, nipped, and put to rest, it can destroy lives.  

I write about it, because you know sometimes, we don’t really know what we are capable of, when angry.  I write about it, because I have seen it hurt myself, and others, and I lived in a household as I grew up, where anger was evident now and then.  

This post is not to criticize anyone, or make anyone feel bad, but to be honest, I just sense how the enemy of God, does use anger, and provokes people to do things, they would never want to do, or to have done to them.  Yet, many do.

They give into anger.  And I want to talk about it, as a spirit, because I truly believe there are many other different spirits, that we can be mindful of, and this particular one, is meant to destroy.  

We always have to know where things come froem, to get to the root of something.  And the enemy of God, the devil, is known to kill, steal, and destroy.  He wants to steal the destiny God has for you, and destroy that purpose, and anger can be used to do that.  Our jails are filled with angry people.  

But if one can know in advance, recognize it, as a spirit, and take God at His word, I believe, they can stop that anger, they can curve it, into energy, as a spirit, to do good things.  

Now mind you, righteous indignation, that may be considered anger, can benefit some, and can bring a purpose for a wrong doing.  But you have to see, and know what God says about everything, and we are warned to be careful not to be angry.

You are the one who has to rule this spirit.  

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.  Proverbs 16:32.  KJV. 

Have you ever gotten angry, at someone right before bedtime, and not resolved a situation?  We are told, to not let the sun set on our anger.  This scripture tells us that, and I also believe it affects our emotional, and physical health.  

It is best if we can make peace with whoever has angered us, and not to give into that anger, in our time of rest.  

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.  Ephesians 4:26 KJV.

We are told not to make friends with angry people.  Look, we all have moments where we want to vent, and its good to have a friend who understands.  But something about anger, it is contagious, and if you value your peace of mind, be aware of angry people, and steer away from them.  They can influence you, and also get you in trouble.  

Sometimes, though its hard, you don’t know this that it affects you, but you see the fruit, and some people need to know especially that anger is not a fruit of the spirit.  Which I recommend you look up yourself.  In a good King James bible.  As Christians we are to follow this sense of instruction, in the fruit of the spirit, for our own spirits to bear fruit in Christ.    

But here in this scripture is the warning:

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go.  Proverbs 22:24.  

Ever noticed that an angry person, instigates, or tries to cause problems as well?

An angry man stirreth up strife, and a curious man aboundeth in transgression.  Proverbs 29:22.

As Christians we are called to have the spirit of Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to love one another, and to have self-control.  

Yes, even Christ got angry, and I admire, His anger when He overthrew the tables at the temple.  For He saw, how this place was used to make money, and not for prayer.  And yes, one could say it was extreme.  But no one got hurt, and no one, was a target of His anger.  

Even when He was in the garden and the disciple cut the ear off of the soldier, He used His healing authority, and power to restore the soldiers ear.  He could have had angels at His calling, He could have done angry things, in that moment, but our God is so much greater then that.  So we are called to have self-control.  We are called to love, we are called, to not give into anger.    

The following scripture, also talks about how we are to have self-control:

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God, not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.  Titus 1:7.  

I want to encourage you, perhaps, you have just come across this post, by curiosity, or it is a problem, God can turn it around.  

He can give you peace, in situations, that normally would bring anger out in you.  But you have to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  If you have not given Christ your heart, now would be a great time, to make it right with Christ.  Give Him your anger, and repent, give your heart to Him.  Tell Him, to change your heart.    

You have to let His spirit, rule your heart, you have to repent.  You have to be aware of this spirit, and make the attempt to make it right.  It can be done, I know.  Behaviors, that can bring curses, can be changed by Christ.  I understand this spirit of anger, but I myself had to bring it to Christ, to change me and He has.    

I write about it in my book.  Feel free to check out the link, in the photo above and I pray, God bless you, if you have anger.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7. 

Blessings, and love in Christ,   Elena Ramirez
