CHANGE YOUR DISPOSITION BY CHANGING YOUR POSITION CLOSER TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Yesterday, I had a terrible day.  I was ticked off.  I was angry.  Sometimes, when I see unrighteousness, I do get angry.  Yesterday was one of those days, because I see so much deception, in the body of Christ, in our nation, and some of these folks, get me angry.

I was in battle.

And to make a long story short, I was out of focus.  And well something happened, that kind of snapped me out of it, but it was not pleasant.

Anyway, I had a chat with my hubby this morning, and I thank God for who he is, because he can sometimes, bring insight to me, inspiration, and minister to me.  I received it.  

Because he reminded me, how you have to sometimes, look at your disposition.  Look at the fruit of who you are, what you are doing, and when the darts start flying, don’t be a dummy, and just stay there, and take the hits.  Move closer to God.  Change your disposition, by changing your position, closer to God.

See, as a Christian, sure we may say we believe in God, but we have to look at our own fruit.  I had some “stinking thinking” yesterday.  It showed.

I see it now.  But sometimes, in the heat of a spiritual battle, we can get stubborn.  We can think we can handle it, we can even dish it out.  And I also saw this story on social media,  author unknown, that reminded me, we cannot:

It was about a snake.  The snake, walked into a carpenters studio, and brushed against a saw.  It grazed it, and it made the snake angry.  Well the snake said, I will show you who I am, and I will use my powers, and strangle you.  So, it wrapped itself around the saw, and the saw, not moving, the snake thought, it overpowered it, and tightened its grip around the saw harder, but because of who it was, with sharp blades, it killed the snake.  

The moral of that story is:  The snake had no right to assume, it could take on a fight with something, that had power, on its own, without even doing anything.  

See, even with me, I should have prayed more.  But I trusted my ability, I got a little overconfident.  I see it.    

See, another analogy, is that we can get so caught up in something, like I was as well, that we lose our focus.  We can be deceived by something, and well the fruit will not reflect that of Christ.  Even though, my cause was great, I was in a battle, with a saw, so to speak, and I was not equipped to handle it.  There was a chink in my armor of God.  Anger, got in the way.  

We can do that.  And I am not a snake.  I don’t take on attributes of being sneaky, mean spirited, or hitting below the belt, like some folks do.  Where one moment, they apologize, but the next minute they go for the jugular.  They don’t fight fair.  You see the fruit.  You see, the pride.  You see the denial, or excuse making, instead of being accountable.  You see, the lies, and false witnesses, and you want to hit back.  But sometimes, its not your job to hit at all.  Lesson learned. 

But I am called to be wise as the snake, but harmless as a dove.

BEHOLD I SEND YOU FORTH AS SHEEP IN THE MIDST OF WOLVES:  BE YE THEREFORE WISE AS SERPENTS, AND HARMLESS AS DOVES.  Matthew 10:16.  Holy King James Bible.  

But isn’t that what the devil wants to do to us?  Deceive us, corrupt us, mislead us, and so we can lose what our focus is, or who we are in Christ?  His goal, is to make us fall, and any of us will fall without Christ holding us up.  When we puff ourselves up, get full of ourselves, with pride, over estimating, our own ability, we can fall.

See, if we also just look at the devil, look at what he does, take our eyes off of Christ, we are putting the devil in a position of adoration, because we think the devil has power.  We can even take on attributes of the enemy, because we are not watching Christ, but the enemy.

We do not, if we submit to God first.  Then we can resist, the enemy, and he will flee.  Because we have changed our disposition, by changing our position closer to God.  

I do so, even now by publicly repenting to God, and asking for wisdom and guidance in these matters.  Because I don’t want to have poor judgment.  

So, in order, for me, as an example, I just see, I have to change my disposition.  I have to move out of the way of the enemy.  Get closer to God, and let those fiery darts miss me.  Practice the fruit of the spirit, and obey God.  

Sometimes, it takes something to move us, but if we are smart, if we see, if we only did it the way of the Lord, well we could miss those darts.  Put on the armor of God.  

Yes, I changed my disposition, by changing my position, and getting closer to God.  

I hope this blesses you.  You know, I always pray, to try to help you get closer to God.

Have a good one.   All glory to God, He holds me up, He heals me, and puts salve on my wounds.  He did that for me today.  With the help of my dear loving husband.  Thank you Father.

Loyalty, is one of the most beautiful attributes a person can have.  And it is not something that you can abuse, or take for granted.  But it is something that must be nurtured.  It is something, that you have to show every once in a while.  It is something, that always has to be a foundation of who you are.

For loyalty will be dedicated to one source.  There are two choices to pick from in loyalty.  And your heart and yes your soul has to know which one to pick.  You have to be faithful to that source.  You have to know that you know, with all your heart, that your loyalty is worthy.

Those two sources, are either God or the devil.  And even here I renounce satan, and give my allegiance to God.  My loyalty.  To the creator of heaven and earth.  Why do that? Because God needs to hear it Himself now and then.  I need to say it myself to build my foundation.  Of my own identity.

I say it here, I write it here, to establish it in my heart, on good ground.  My heart, is inditing a matter of expression, to give God glory.  And to write about loyalty, to bring understanding to our souls.  For the source of wisdom, that I write from, comes from God Himself.  Because He is loyal.

He is loyal to us.  He is so loyal to us, that He sent His only begotten Son, to die for us.  To save us from our sins.  To save us from the destruction that comes when one is not loyal to Him.  So we must be loyal to God, because He is loyal to us.

When one is loyal to God, you see things in truth.  You see things in His light.  You see love.  You see hope.  You see a way, when there was no way.  You see God, and His power, and might.  You see His truth, and you understand how important it is to be loyal to God, through obedience.  You see how precious the sacrifice was of Christ, and you know, that you know, you must be loyal to God, through everything.

This causes warfare.  Why?  Because the other source that wants to steal your loyalty from God comes from the devil himself.  You must never, ever forget, what has transpired in heaven.  You must never forget how the enemy, comes to kill, steal and destroy, and you must very importantly know, that you must be very, very careful not to be deceived.

Prayer. With the armor of God on.  To quench those fiery darts.  To have the mind of Christ.

You must pray.  You must pray in this warfare, to be wise, to be reminded, how important it is to be loyal to God.

First and foremost.  Remember the warfare in heaven.  Remember the angels, that were thrown out with the devil.  They were loyal to the enemy.  They were not loyal to God.

People, do not see they are tested.  They do not see, that God is testing them, to see who they will align themselves with, in loyalty, while we are given time on this earth.  They do not see, how important it is to be loyal to God.  To choose truth.  To choose holiness, to choose His ways, for He is the way, the truth and life.  John 14:6.

You may love someone, but if your loyalty is not to God, you can be so easily deceived.  You can be so easily swayed to choose wrong.  The enemy uses love, to fool people.  He uses that which God created, to be corrupted, and changed so he can deceive you. Even in Bibles.  This is why I only use a King James.  Because it is preserved for 400 years.  Not corrupted.  I am loyal to God in this matter.  And I take heed to the many scriptures that warn not to use or change His holy word, by adding to it, or deleting it.

And if you are not wise to his antics, of the enemy, or to what God wants, you will be fooled.  You will be deceived.

The warfare that was in heaven is also in your heart.  You need to know, that the enemy, wants to deceive you, even by how you love.  What you choose to love.  Who you choose to love.  From friends, to things, to family, to the spirits, that are deceiving, he wants to confuse you.

Oh it is so important to seek God, in these matters.  For He is the only one that will guide you.  He is the great shepherd.  He will steer you away from things, and people that can hurt you.  He knows that we are like sheep sometimes, just so easily swayed to wander off.  He knows this.  But you have to know this yourself and discipline yourself to please God, to obey Him, to be loyal to Him.  To seek Him.  To listen for His voice and only His voice.  His sheep know His voice, and to another they will not follow.  This is loyalty to God.  Again what bible are you loyal to?  Is it truth, or just a version of truth.  Part truth part lie?

The warfare you experience, is because you have not determined this just yet.  You are tossed to and fro, because you have not totally made God, your Lord and savior.  You are not obedient to His commandments and ways.  You know of Him, but you wander off.  And the danger of that, is that your soul, could be in spiritual danger.  You cannot play with your salvation.  You cannot play with being loyal.  I call it walking on the fence line, because that is how I used to be.  I would walk the fence.  I grew up knowing about Jesus.  I grew up, even giving my heart to Him.  But because I was not disciplined.  Because I wanted things my way.  I walked in the ways of the world, and I hit the bottom, rock bottom.  I was between God and the world.  And their is no in-between with God.  It has to be with Him, or you will lose.

Not until, I began seeing my loyalties were not toward God completely I saw I was in warfare.  I saw my friends, and one friend in particular who I loved dearly, who was not loyal to God.  And if anything, the total opposite of anything God represented.   Don’t tell me friends do not matter, they do.  And their spirits influence you, because you are then linked to them by the spirit, they represent.  And if that spirit is not loyal to God, it will not be loyal to you, and they can be your own down fall.  They can open the door, to curses because you give them the authority to open the doors to things, that can hurt you because your love, your love for them gives them that authority.

I have learned, if someone is not loyal to God, they will not be loyal to me.  I no longer have warfare.  That kind anyway.  I have made up my mind, soul and spirit  If I fight….well thats between me and God.  Because He teaches my hands to battle.  And I obey Him.  

HE TEACHETH MY HANDS TO WAR, SO THAT A BOW OF STEEL IS BROKEN BY MINE ARMS.  PSALMS 18:34.

But….I have learned.  Of, the kind of warfare that came from heaven, when the angels fought against each other, and I saw who was truly my friend, and who was not, in the spirit, and it is easy to fight against those spirits that so want to steal my loyalty.  No! I will not give place to the enemy.  I will submit to God, I will resist the enemy, and he will flee.  Because I fear God.  I will not be torn in my spirit to choose, those who are not obedient to God.  Thats their choice!  I am sad for them, but my mind, and heart is made up, I will choose God.  This is where my loyalty must always be.  

So, if you are wondering where your loyalty is?  Then ask yourself, do you fear God?  Because if you do not, you are not loyal to God.  You will have warfare.  Within.  You have to know.  You have to decide once and for all.  Who will you be loyal to?  I fear God, and it is the healthiest thing I can do. 

I choose God.  Who do you choose?  This will affect your decisions, your blessings, your salvation.

Time is of the essence.  Right now, you have this gap in time to choose, but if you do not choose correctly, and with wisdom, and loyalty to choose God.  You can lose out.  For eternity.  Don’t let the enemy steal your blessings, your health, or your love, or anything that God promises to give you.  Its not worth it.  Its not.  You still can be blessed.  If you choose wisely.

Loyalty, is proof of love.  Never forget that.  Christ proved it.  What do you have to prove?

Blessings and love in Jesus Christ, for what He did on the cross for me.  And I thank my Lord Jesus.

NAY, IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH HIM, THAT LOVED US.  ROMANS 8:37. KJV.

LEST SATAN SHOULD GET AN ADVANTAGE OF US:  FOR WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF HIS DEVICES.  II CORINTHIANS 2:11. KJV. 

HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS; AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON.  REVELATION 21:7. KJV.

AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BRUISE SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET SHORTLY.  THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOU.  AMEN ROMANS 16:20 KJV.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.”
‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:1-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

When I was a small child, Christmas meant I had a lot of presents under the tree. That Santa would see I was a good girl and come and bring me lots of presents. Now all I want more then ever is that the sweet spirit of Christmas to bring me the true meaning of who Christ is. You can’t find that under your tree but in your heart…in times of poverty or times of abundance. Christ is the gift that keeps on giving. I have learned. His presence is the present… I wrote this about the Christmas spirit. I hope it blesses you… ❤

So your not feeling the Christmas Spirit?  You feel kind of BAH-HUMBUG.  Bah humbug, see that word (bah hum bug), you gotta quit letting things bug you.  So lets start there.

You see, God our King, our Lord, Jesus came to save us all, and HE understands, our sorrows, our pain, our needs.  But you cannot see Him work in your life, unless you allow Him, into your heart.  In every part of your heart.  Not just part of it.  

You know how you catch a cold, its a virus.  Well, that bug, of bah humbug, is a virus to your spirit.  It wants you to feel bad.  It wants you to deny Christ.  So watch that.  

So what do you do when you catch a cold? You concentrate on getting better, you take precautions, and nurture your body.  Well you have to do that with your spirit.  To get into the Christmas spirit…

For it is your responsibility to stir up that spirit.  Lets talk about spirits for a second.  There is that invisible feeling, that is within you, whether it is happiness, sadness, poverty, or even infirmity, which is called sickness, that can make you sick.  These are spirits.

There are spirits, that come from God Himself, and then there are spirits, that come from hell itself.  And you have to identify which is from God, and from the devil.  And when you do, then you can see the beauty of Christmas.  

And you need to know how to control it, and you need to know how to tap into the Holy Spirit of God Himself.  And only God can control it, so this is where submission to God comes from.  Total surrendering….to joy. 

Joy, the joy of the Lord, is our strength.  Nehemiah 8:10.  King James.

To be healed, spiritually, to feel that joy.

But when you are not letting God do a good thing, by even stirring up your hope, your joy, your child like thoughts of Christmas, you are allowing the enemy to steal your joy, that comes from the Holy Spirit.  You do have to see that.  

You have to know who God is, and then you have to know who you are in Christ.  By the Holy Spirit….

This is the first step in a line of other steps but very important.  So please note this:

If you are not a Christian, or if you are a Christian, who has sinned, you need to repent.  And sometimes we don’t even know we have sinned.  But God knows, and His spirit will not be there.  So thats a good place to start.

Repent, this is the very first thing, you must do…..Rededicate yourself to Christ.  Accept Christ into your heart.  Remember what He did on the cross for you.  For this truly is the very, main reason why God sent Him.

Go to God, tell Him, your not feeling the Christmas spirit, ask Him to forgive you.  Ask Him to show you the true meaning of Christmas.  In any way, that He wants too. And then conclude to be obedient.  Knowing why Christmas is so important.  

And the reason that is because Jesus is the reason for the season.  For God so loved the world, that He gave and sent His only begotten son.  (paraphrasing John 3:16.  King James)

Think about that.  God loves us, and sent Christ to save us so we have to sometimes, just identify that, and know how great His love is.  To know what Christmas is really about…

So here are some tips, that I sense the Holy Spirit is bringing to my attention just to stir up that, after you have come to the throne of God, and made it right with God, in your salvation to remind you, on your part, how to stir up Christmas:

  1.  Start by being thankful for what you have.  Friends, family, home, health, protection, your great country…any blessing you can think of, and cannot think of.  Things you may have avoided, or did not know about, but God knew and spared you.  And just let that child like thankfulness “spirit” enter your heart.

  2. Start giving to someone anyone.  Think about someone else, to bless.  In any way you can.  Even out of the ordinary,  Impulsively…Buy someone a gift, a cup of coffee, a homeless person, and just let that spirit of giving remind you, of Gods love, that He gave us.  Give to someone, that you know can never repay you.  But God will….

  3. Remember, to rebuke any negative feelings.  Doubt, anger, sadness, even your feeling of poverty, and remind yourself, at this time of Christmas, the miracle of Christmas.  Think of the angels.  Think of the goodness of God, that God sent angels to go to Mary, and to tell her, she would be the mother of Christ.  Think of all the possibilities.  Remember God said, all things are possible with Him.  FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE.  LUKE 2:37 

  4. Think of Christ and all of the miracles, He did.  As He walked in this life, and the promises He made.  And feel the true spirit of who Christ is.  

  5. Ponder on the miracle of Christmas because of who Christ is. Think of the nativity.  Think of when the three wisemen came, to seek Him, and they followed that star, and the quietness, and beauty of a silent night.  Think of the gifts they brought to bless the King, and then bless God, with your spirit of believing and giving.  QUIET YOUR SPIRIT TO HEAR FROM GOD.  

  6. Be careful and rebuke the Pharisee spirit, the spirit, that doubts, and look at things religiously.  Or that puts down the meaning of Christmas.  That spirit, that will even take a scripture, and try to put down even putting up a Christmas tree.  Or making a mockery of it, by the commercialization.  This really is sin, to deny what Christ came for.  To deny Christmas or to hate it.  So be careful of people who do not see it your way.  Some people are toxic.  You may even think of blessing them.  But if you cannot be near them, or they will spit on that sweet spirit, get away from them.  Bless them but get away.  

  7. Think of love…for truly Christmas is love.  If there is hate, or unforgiveness, again repent, but release it.  Let it flow away from you, and just be willing to see the good in people.  Even mean people, just remember what Christ did for you. 

  8. Ponder on the true holy word.  Get a good King James bible, and look up the nativity.  (Luke 2) Read it to your family, on Christmas eve, or even now, and let the spirit of truth, and Gods love bless you by His Holy word.  This is very important because of the holiness of word.  You want holy, anointed scripture that is not corrupted.  By the changing of words.  PRAY WITH YOUR FAMILY.  BRING CHRIST INTO YOUR HOME.  

  9. Get good Christmas music, and listen to it.  Sing with it.  Dance to it.  

  10. Guard your heart…To give God glory.  Think about how, and any way you can acknowledge who God is, and speak or do anything that will give God glory.  For it will rebuke the enemy.  The enemy of God, who does not want to give God glory.  Be very careful with this. 

  11. Go to a church where the Christmas story is being told.  With the intention of seeing God, or seeing, some kind of sign from God.  

  12. Expect miracles, expect and believe, you see Christmas is about believing, and only you can stir up your heart, to believe.  But this is faith, and faith begins when you pray, and just conclude, not to rationalize, or to analyze Christmas or anything but God.  But to obey.  To obey God, means you are allowing His spirit, in your heart.  Then you will have Christmas.  See it like a child….but be careful to not put anything besides Christs birth as the meaning….

These are just some tips, I am sharing, by the Holy Spirit, but truly only God can touch your heart, to know any of these things.  As you have your part in just being mindful of these things, God will do His part.  

Your Christmas can be merry my friends.  I sense some of you are so hurt, so angry, so cold, and even hateful, of this time of the season.  You may be alone.  You may have terrible memories of this time.  You may have hard, times, that seem unbearable in every way.  But remember, Christ came to save, us, but to also heal us. Isaiah 53:5.( see it from a King James) That healing can also be our spirits.  And nothing is impossible again, with God.  Let that be your hope.  

To conclude this:  Work on your relationship with Christ every day of the year.  This is not a religion, this is relationship we all have to work on with our Lord.  But you will find if you do this, the Holy spirit of Christmas will come to you much easier, it will flow.  Love, never fails.  

Merry Christmas….To all, and to God be the glory, peace, on earth good will toward all.  May the sweet Spirit of Christmas be yours, if all you have is this scripture……God will be with you.  

Invite me to your church function, ladies group, or church seminar to speak at your event……

Much love, Elena Ramirez

I title this post this way, to make the point.  That I know, that I know, I am a faith helper, to help you, and others in their faith in God.  But I want to make it clear from the beginning.  Its not about me.  Its about God.  Its not about fame, or prosperity or even being acknowledged.  Which can easily begin pride.  

You can know something, but you don’t have to have pride, when you do.  Many times, people will have gifts and callings, and they forget it is a gift from God, and they think its all about them.  They think they are, then superior.  They think, that the ability they possess, is the reason for their success.  Or that separates themselves from other, and makes them better.  Wrong.  Why?  Because first of all God is not a respecter of persons.  

FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD.  ROMANS 2:11

Well, I want you to know and more then anything else in fear of God, I tell you… God wants to get glory in it.  

I AM THE LORD:  THAT IS MY NAME:  AND MY GLORY WILL I NOT GIVE TO ANOTHER, NEITHER MY PRAISE TO GRAVEN IMAGES.  Isaiah 42:8

And, anything, I do to help you in your faith.  Because again, God has gifted me, for His glory, is to show you His ways.  So He can be glorified.  And truly He does deserve glory, for all of the wondrous things He can do.  And does.  For His creation, for His power, for His healing abilities, and so much more.  For He gives life, and He can take it away.  His ways, are not like our ways.  

FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD.  Isaiah 55:8.

So, how do we begin, to get Gods thoughts?  How do we begin to get His ways?  I believe with all my heart, it begins with the bible we use.  You see, the King James is old, and has been preserved.  For over 400 years.  God knew.  Just this century men, and publishers began playing with the Holy word, and changed it.  They disregarded the warnings.  But we can see the warnings from the King James.  To get Gods thoughts.  To get His ways.  And I think if we begin to see that, we can begin to have faith.  

We live in a world, where faith, is not always encouraged.  If it was, everyone would be talking about who God is.  They would acknowledge Him.  They would not deny Him.  

Just recently, I saw a motivational speaker, talking, about the abilities people have to get success, or to make a difference in this world.  And this person, did have a sense about him to inspire.  To motivate, with good ideas.  But there was one thing missing.  And that was the foundation of knowing God.  And bringing God into the conversation.  Without that foundation of God, we have nothing to stand on.  

You see, without God, we are missing the point.  We are missing, the truth in why we are created.  Our thoughts, become empty, humanistic, without, seeing our whole being, really does depend on who God is, and who He is in our life.  We become self absorbed, but that can be cold.  That can be empty, without the spark that God can give, and because of who He is.  I wrote more about that in my page above, entitled “Conversations.”  Where I was discussing it with someone.  

Anyway, we all need help.  There are times, we have to come to the bottom of the barrel, if we do not make God a priority.  Life is not easy.  And when there is an enemy, who Christ warned us about, who comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Without God in ones life, we can fall.  We can be our own worst enemy, because we have not make Christ, the way, the truth, and the life.  

But there are things we have to begin to do.  We have to develop our faith.  This is why I wrote my book.  “HOW TO HAVE FAITH”   By Elena Ramirez.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  

There are things, I have learned, by trial and error, as well with success, how to develop my own faith.  But you have to try.  

If you deny God, you deny the only true chance, to be the best you can be.  With or without gifts and callings, if God is not the foundation of your life, your life, will truly not meet its potential.  

Once you stop denying God, and start searching for Him, you are then on the road, to make Christ the way, the truth, and the life.  You also though, have to have good doctrine.  And this is so very, very vital, to finding out who God is, but also hearing His voice clearly.  To have the mind of Christ.  

I say this, again, and again, because there are many bible versions out there but they have been corrupted, by the revisions, and changes.  The voice that comes from the King James bible, is the voice that is spoken by the Holy spirit.  But if you make changes to that, you will not hear Gods voice, but the voice of some publisher, or dude, or dudette, who changed it.  And that voice from its origin, is not the voice of God, but the voice of the enemy, the devil.  And this is where the deception is.  I know along with this more then anything, you have to be careful, in which bible you choose.  

Not only do I warn you.  But you must know, according to scripture, we are warned, not to change, add, or delete it.  The most strongest warning comes from Revelation 22:18-19 and this warns one could actually lose their salvation.  Please see it. 

I do recommend the King James.  

So pray my friends, draw close to God, learn who God is.  Seek Him.  Seek to obey Him.   Be thankful to God.  This is also a very important key.  We can overlook.  Start appreciating and thanking God, for every little thing.  Even if it is little.  Little things grow.  Look at it as seeds.  

I do want to help your faith grow.  I do want to help you.  But you have your part.  If you deny truth, if you deny true instruction.  You will not get the results you long for.  

You see, you have gifts, and callings yourself, that can bring glory to God.  But if you do not get this right, even here to begin with, you will not meet your full potential.  You will miss it.  

You could miss it so much, you could lose your Salvation, because you were deceived.  Heaven and Hell are real.  But if you do not search for truth to find heaven, Gods way, you could be your own enemy, and make hell on earth your reality, and future after death as well.  

This is very important to see.  Because sometimes, we are given chances, but if we do not do what is right, we can set the plan for even eternity.  You do not want to miss it.  

So, I pray, you are inspired, to talk about God, search for God, and truly sense with Him, and in Him, you can meet your potential.  Studying Gods word, your King James Bible, and hiding it in your heart, will produce the fruit that gives evidence to your own faith. 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

THE HATERS OF THE LORD SHOULD HAVE SUBMITTED THEMSELVES UNTO HIM:  BUT THEIR TIME SHOULD HAVE ENDURED FOR EVER.  PSALM 81:15

I have to say this:  Mocking God is stupid.  And I guess, I came to this great revelation, because on social media, there are so many people, who want to mock God.  You can see a post, and just make a sweet little general comment, and the vultures come out.  

It is actually sad, that people have no respect.  Sure, I believe in free speech for others, but for myself as well.  And you just wonder, why someone would combat you so strongly, to deny God.  Or to deny free speech.  Or to make a mockery of something that is precious, and that is a belief in God.   To someone else.  Why?  

Why would someone, have so much animosity, to actually be rude, is disconcerting.  And to who it may concern, even reading here, I pray, that you would take my words to heart, because someday you are going to need God.  We all need Him.  He created us, to seek Him.  He created, us to call on Him, in times of trouble.  Life happens.  

But God…I know He can intervene.  He has for me, so many times.  A warning, an angel in disguise, a blessing.  A miracle.  A healing…. 

God has done so much for me, that I praise Him, and thank Him here.  No your talking to the wrong person, if you want to deny Him.  I know He is real.  I know, He exists.  I know, His love….

I truly believe, so many of our problems, in life, and society, could be stopped, or avoided, if we only had the fear of God, as He has called us to do.  

And yes, I am calling it for what it is, according to His word, and truth, from my King James Bible.  Fear.  We are called to fear God.  And when someone mocks an almighty God, who holds our lives in His hands, and yes our souls, to either send us to heaven or hell, and they have no fear, to even stop, and see the error of their ways, that is stupid! 

That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the Lord your God for ever.  Joshua 4:24.

I don’t understand this pride, to deny God.  To deny His healing power.  To deny just His protection at a moments notice.  How can any of us expect Him, to be available in time of need, if we don’t even honor Him?  I know many people do not believe.  It is their choice.  And God, our Lord Jesus, is a gentleman, He does not ever push Himself on any of us.  

But I guess, there was a time, when I was younger, that when you did not believe, you were at least courteous, to keep it to yourself.  Or you gave someone the benefit of the doubt.  But now a days, there is no respect.  I see horrible, rude, and insulting things, that I cannot even repeat, but are centered around God.  To insult, or to deny.  And yes, to His followers, in Jesus Christ.  

I implore you, to be careful.  You don’t want to believe in God, that is your choice….  But the Holy word of God says, every knee will bow.  Every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord.  

For it is written, as I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.  Romans 14:11

And for someone to reject, mock, and insult the only one who could help you in time of need, is actually stupid for lack of a more gracious word.  

Because I would love to extend grace to you.  God would as well.  But because of who He is, and because He will not condone, or accept sin, He sent us His son, Jesus Christ, to take the penalty of our sins.  And when someone denies that great gift, they have hurt themselves so greatly here on earth, but for eternity.  No that is not too smart.  

And for those that persecute Christians, or make life hard for them, you have no idea, what curses you have brought to your own life.  But even future generations.  God says He will punish up to the fourth generation.  Those that deny Him, or even choose an idol.  

I just hope my words resonate with you.  To perhaps revaluate your stance.  You know, I denied God years ago, in my youth.  And those were the darkest days of my life.  And now, all these years, that I have been saved, I see, how stupid I was.  Yes, I humbly admit it.  I wish, I could go back, and change those times.  But, I live with the memories.  I live with the consequences of my foolish choices.  But for the rest of my life, and God only knows how long that is.  I will serve Him.  I will Honor God.  I will give glory to Him.  For forgiving me.  For giving me another chance.  And I praise Him, and know, with all my being, nothing is impossible with God.  

THINE OWN WICKEDNESS SHALL CORRECT THEE, AND THY BACKSLIINGS SHALL REPROVE THEE:  KNOW THEREFORE AND SEE THAT IT IS AN EVIL THING AND BITTER, THAT THOU HAST FORSAKEN THE LORD THY GOD, AND THAT MY FEAR IS NOT IN THEE, SAITH THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS.  JEREMIAH 2:19  

But even then, being as stupid as I was.  I never attacked someone for believing in God.  If anything, maybe someone inspired me.  But to purposely try and hurt, and insult someone for believing in God, comes from the devil, and is evil.  So no, even in my disbelief, I never tried to hurt anyone.    I hope you see this, and repent.  

You see, when you come against a Christian, or the work of God, you are messing with Gods plan, and His glory.  He did not let the devil steal His glory from the beginning, and He will not let someone steal it now.  There will be a price to pay!

So yes, I know the difference, and maybe that is why I can ask you, and implore you to be careful.  You see, your soul is at stake.  And all the things you call luck, have nothing to do with luck, but with who God is in His grace.  So if you are some body who hates, to mock, and insult, I pray you have a change of heart.  Before it is too late.  Before you need a miracle.  

You could still get it, you could change your outcome if you change now.  All you have to do is bow your head down, repent, and repent of the mockery you have made, and ask Christ in your heart.  Then change, your mind, your behavior, and LET CHRIST change your heart.  FOR HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN MAKE THAT DIFFERENCE!  

Read a good King James Bible, and hear the voice of God.  Not any other Bible, you want something uncorrupted.  

Because if you don’t you will only have yourself to blame, and for eternity, you will say in hell….why was I so stupid?  

Maybe this scripture will remind you what is ahead, for those who mock.  

Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption:  but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  And let us not be weary in well doing:  for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  Galatians 6:7-9 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

Please Note:  I wrote this, out of mere frustration, that people can be so rude.  And yet, I detect in myself, a harshness, that is so blunt here, it can also be considered rude.  But that really is not my intention.  Perhaps, my being blunt, and honest, can open someones eyes.  To see Fathers love.  To see His mercy, and kindness.  To see, how good God really is.  I really do love, and have love, because of Christ….oh if you had known me, in my youth, you would understand.  But, I pray that you would ensure your salvation with Christ.  I am not sure when Christ would return, but it could be soon.  Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  Friend, and I call you friend, if you are someone who is searching, please, see the truth I tell you in this post, and see it as love.  Because Christ does love you.   Make it right with Him.  Live for Christ.  You will not regret it.  Elena

God is not a figment of my imagination, or some thing to consider as one would when you go shopping for spiritual inspiration.  No my God is so much more, not only is He the creator of heaven and earth, and has the ability to spare our souls from hell.  He can make a way, when there was no way. He can heal us spiritually and physically….

He is so underestimated, in our world.  And is misunderstood, and rejected.  But His love is so great, and we can just look at Jesus the son of God, to get a mere glimpse of who He is.  But people have to look, and we have to tell others….

Look at our world folks, it needs God more then ever.  With all that is going on in the world, they call persecuted Christians, “religious minorities.”  Truth is not spoken any more, and it is very disconcerting.  For we see how the world is changing, and no one stops it, no one stands for that which is right.  This really bothers me being a truth seeker.  

Even as I look at other Christians, they are silent.  They are quiet.  Sure some speak truth about other things, but yet, they do not stand up for God, and what God can do in a life.  Nor do they defend, the defenseless, or stand up against evil.  The lines are fuzzy, because many do not embrace the truth of God, and His word.  Folks we are in end times.  We are seeing prophecy being fulfilled even right now, before our eyes, and in the news.  Truth, is so vague in the body of Christ.   

And yet, when someone in authority could make a difference, we see silence.   No one is taking a stand, to speak truth.  I long to.  But who am I?  All I know, is that if given the chance, I would speak to others, I would proclaim Christ more so.  People need hope.  They need truth, not sugar coated lies.  I am weary, in not making progress, but I still know God can!  I know it, I know that I know God is able.  No God is not a figment of my imagination.   

All we can do is pray, but yet, I know we can do more.  We have to.  

His will be done.  I so pray, that my heart, my soul, my being, gives Him glory.  I want to inspire God, and I am so sympathetic to know, He loves us all.  But sadly, many reject Him.  I don’t want that recorded on the records of heaven, but that I love Him, and thank Him…..

For every thing, from the small to the big.  I am grateful.  I love the Lord, and pray just to please Him.  I suppose I am venting today.  I suppose, I am just trying to toot my horn, but its for His glory, not mine.  

Blessings, and love, just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

Why do I ask this question?

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

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

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

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

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

I am also aware, that the devil is an accuser of the brethren.  Revelation 12:10-11 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come Salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ; for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they over came him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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