MAY THE “WILL” OF THE LORD BE MAGNIFIED IN 2018 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2May the “will” of the Lord be magnified in 2018.  

Speaking, and concentrating on that, gives me such hope.  Because more then ever, I am seeing who God is.  I am seeing His ways.  I am seeing my mistakes, that led to sin.  And what I have reaped….I am seeing How great Christ is, I am seeing His thoughts…..manifested.  

It is a release, so to speak of my faith.  To speak His will be done.  

You know, we all have desires of the heart, hopes, dreams, and even visions.  But if we leave God out of the equation, well like the saying goes, in scripture.  “unless the Lord, builds the house, we labor in vain.”

I am tired of laboring in vain.  To be honest.  I am tired of having poor, or bad judgment, where I made mistakes, or where, even things were not fulfilled in my life.  I am tired, of wanting something, and maybe even saying, it in the name of the Lord, but it did not come to pass.  Praying for something, but praying amiss.  And I think not praying for Gods will to be done, is praying amiss.  

YE ASK, AND RECEIVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ASK AMISS, THAT YE MAY CONSUME IT UPON YOUR LUSTS.  JAMES 4:3  KJV.  

Just saying, even here, but the prosperity message, is asking God amiss….He is not an ATM!

I want to touch base on this slightly, so maybe you can be encouraged as well, you see, I know this is my gift and calling, to speak truth, and inspire you.  Whether it be one person, a thousand, or even 100 billion people.  I want to be used by God, but I have learned….  

His will be done!

I never want to put a limit on God.  But I probably have, even in my own small thinking.  I want to get past that.  I want to grow.  I want you to grow.  There should never be a limit we put on God, because of who He is.  The earth, is the Lords, and the fullness thereof.  

But I truly believe, He wants us to seek Him for who He is, not what He can give.  He wants us to know what pleases Him.  What His power can do, but He has requirements, He has ways of excellence, that must truly grieve Him, when we misinterpret who He is.  Or even deny Him.  To me its very sad, to not see or know Him.  His presence, is the present, if you get my drift.  But His spirit, is Holy.    And He wants that for us too.  So we have our part to seek that.  To obey, to love Him, in obedience.  

His will be done, His righteousness, and Kingdom be magnified.  As I seek Him, all things will be added.  He says, all things are possible with Him.  All things.  

But there are principles, ways, commandments from God that must be fulfilled.  Laws…..

Laws that should be kept in the name of the Lord, and actually in fear of God, but sadly, many do not keep Gods laws.  Or wants, and ways, in the name of the Lord, through Christ.  

I took a break from social media, recently, during the holidays, to refresh myself, to fill myself, up, in the Lord.  I felt empty, poured out.  I felt like I was running on fumes, but before I did, I had a very interesting conversation, with a so called sister in the Lord.  

She was very adamant about promoting the “prosperity message.”   And her thoughts, disturbed me, that she felt the way she did.  Basically she said, that the Old Testament, was just a history lesson, and that anything she did, was covered by the blood of Jesus, and to be explicit, the way she communicated, she expressed, she basically believed, she had a “license” to sin.  WRONG!

Many Christians, have been taught, that we are saved by grace.  Which is true.  But many have the thought, and are taught by the blind, that the laws, from the Old Testament, do not apply, because of the new covenant in Christ, which is the New Testament.  So they do not think of the “laws” they do not try and keep the laws, that Moses gave, from God.  

Now, I am not going to get into a theological debate, with anybody, or argue and debate it, because there are some things, that may not apply.  But when you are talking about Gods’s commandments, and what to keep and not to keep, well I warn here, tread carefully!  Very carefully!  

Scripture says, we are only free from the law of sin, and death.  It does not say anything about Gods commandments.  

FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  ROMANS 8:2.  KJV.  

Christ who fulfills the law, became the sacrifice.  That is holy.  A big difference.  Compared to what is sacrificed   Please read Matthew 5, from a King James bible, to see, what Jesus says about the law.  

As I discussed this with this “wicked” woman, I realized, how lost she was.  I realized, how important Gods commandments are.  But I also realized how strong her convictions were, and because she was misled, she could mislead others.  She was trying to mislead me, and there was no way, I was going to drink that kook-aid.   That was very deceptive.  And one key factor, was she did not walk in love.  Her thoughts were judgmental, and very mean spirited.  Christ said, we would be known by the Love, and her fruit did not reveal that.  So I rejected her thoughts.  

And the first thought I had as I discussed this with her, did she think God flip flopped, from the Old Testament, and changed His mind?

His word, says He changes not!  He did not change His mind, from the Old Testament, to the New Testament.  He sent Christ to fulfill the law.  

MALACHI 3:6  FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT.  THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED.  

This is what Christ said according to my King James bible, on the matter about the law:  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF THE PROPHETS;  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFILL.  FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL BREAK ONE OF THESE LEAST COMMANDMENTS, AND SHALL TEACH MEN SO, HE SHALL BE CALLED THE LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL DO AND TEACH THEM, THE SAME SHALL BE CALLED GREAT IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 5:17-19.  KJV.

She was trying to teach me not to keep the law of God, and I knew better.  So I could be prosperous.  You know what makes me prosperous?  Releasing myself to the “will” of the Lord, that can never go wrong.  Never.  

Please know better in this matter.  Do not be deceived by the blind, by wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote the “prosperity message.”  Keep Gods laws!  

And the first one, I would recommend, is repent.  Even if you do not think you have done wrong or even sinned.  Thats pride. And confess Christ as your Lord and savior.  Release yourself, in faith, to trust Him, so the will of God can be magnified in your own life, so you can be happy.

And yes, start using a King James bible, so you will be obedient to God in this matter, and the words you claim are holy, not corrupted because of disobedience.  So you can have holy vision.  True vision.

WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH:  BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  Proverbs 29:18.  KJV.

See for me, in the walk I have with the Lord, which is a narrow walk, a straight walk, in finding and searching for truth.  I realize more then ever, to seek the Kingdom of God, in His righteousness, but to release myself, to keep His laws, and to know His will be done.  

No matter what.  No matter if its yes or no. I just have to settle that in my heart, and soul, mind, and being.  

His will be done. So when you pray, remember to pray, His will be done.  His will…..

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, WHEN YE PRAY, SAY OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.  THY KINGDOM COME.  THY WILL BE DONE, AS IN HEAVEN SO IN EARTH.  Luke 11:2.  KJV.

Don’t forget what Christ taught us.  That whatever we bind on earth will be bound, and whatever we loose will be loosed in heaven and earth.  

My desire more then ever.  In my words, in my spirit, in my fear of God.  It is to release His will to be done, in my life, in my family, in my health, in my finances, in what I do for Him, in even my friends.  Who He gives me, or takes from me.  

Being a friend to me in Christ is so important, but I have learned, He brings and takes people away from me.  And I accept that as His will.  

But I will honor His will to be done.  Whether someone agrees with me or not.  Now in 2018, and always.  

And anyone who does not have fear of God in this, is really misled.  Keep Gods laws friends.  So you can be happy.  

Happy New year, of 2018.

DO YOU WANT GOD TO BLESS YOU BUT YOU DO NOT BLESS GOD? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


DSC_0015I feel like I am in fifth grade, and I have been given the assignment to explain this:  

Do you want God to bless you, but you do not bless God?  

I have to explain it.  Its on my heart.  It makes me sad for God.  I actually feel the emotion, and the tears, when I think about it.  

Why me to explain it?  I don’t know…. but it does make me think, it makes me want to bless God.  

I guess, because I am older now.  I guess, because I see the error of my ways, in this lifetime of mine.  I see, the wrong turns I took.  I see the sin in my life.  I see, the lack of love, I had in my life time.  I see the lack of guidance I had.  The loneliness, the self-esteem issues I have had.  I see, I reaped what I sowed, so to speak according to scripture.  I see, the gifts and callings I had, like singing, or even my writing….. And I just see, and I have said this before, I see, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train…

But what if?  What if I had the seed planted in me, at an early age, to bless God?  Not just wanting God to bless me, and lets be totally honest, because we want God to bless us, but if I had the desire to bless Him.  Would my life been different?  I don’t know.  But I think it would have.  

If I ever get grand babies, and I pray I do, I hope I can teach them to bless God.  

But I can only concentrate on this moment.  Oh if only, I could plant the seed in you, to plant that seed in others.  So it would grow fruit, and other seeds.  Perhaps that would bless them.  But it would bless God.  

I say that, because I see the world we live in.  I see brothers and sisters in Christ, who are my brethren, but we do not all agree.  I see, so many deceived, by using the per-version, of different bibles, in the versions they choose, that are not King James Bibles.  That are perverted.  

I see the Prosperity messengers, screaming, “holler for a dollar, and name it and claim it.”  But they do not teach first and foremost the salvation message, to get people to see who God is.  To fear God.  To repent even daily, after Salvation.  To make it right with Him, to see Christ as Lord and savior, before they even dare to ask for anything from God.  

I see the lost.  I see the atheists.  I see people hating, and doing deplorable things.  I see the fruit, that is rotten.  

I see things, even in my beautiful America, that are no longer, sacred, holy, or even considered history.  There is hate, among people, races.  Authority is not respected.  Or honored.  Freedom of speech has turned into hate speech.  Life is not honored, and the innocent, babies, that are slaughtered, daily, in the name of choice.  

Yes, I see things, but I know God sees everything.  And how that must grieve Him.  It has to.  These things we see, cannot bless God!

And there is no one, calling out to bless God.  Or at least I don’t hear it.  Maybe you do.  Do you?  I hope so.  I hope, whatever church or religion, you have, has that motto to bless God.  

And I don’t like the word religion when it applies to me, because religion is, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  And I don’t have “a religion”, I believe I have a relationship with my maker.  

My maker.  My creator.  The Lord God, who is worthy of all praise, glory and honor, for who He is.  For all that He has done.  For His mercy, goodness, kindness, and love.  This being, who gave us this earth.  And gives us life.  Good food, and every perfect thing.  

Think about it.  Our lives are meant to glorify Him.  We are created in His image.  He gives us a soul.  A mind, a heart, to choose him, or not.  He is a gentleman.  He never imposes His thoughts on us.  He gives us a choice.  

Who has throughout time, been there, yes silent many times, but my King James Bible has showed me, that He has had relationships with many.  

Beginning with Adam and Eve.  They had no fear of God, or she and he would not have believed the lie from the devil.  And eaten the fruit.  I always say this, but if only they had gone to God, again…. and asked Him.  God would not have lied.  He would have reaffirmed His truth.  He would have told them, the devil is a liar.  Believe me, and only me.  But they did not ask, and they disobeyed.  

And we all somehow or another, reaped that sin, of them, and it is the same thing today.  We do what we want, and we do not ask God.  How sad.  But we can ask Him…. if our motives are right.  If we think before we ask, whats my part in this?  Will this bless God, if I go to Him in prayer first?  Before I do anything.  

No wonder God tells us He lifts the humble and turns from the proud.  

I think its sad, because I know God would want to do more for us, if we had only tried to obey Him.  Our world, would be different, if sin, had not entered in the picture.  

But its not too late, or at least, I see that for me, any way.  I can try and live my life, obedient, to Him.  Whats left of it….To give Him glory and honor.  I don’t want to leave this earth with that as a question.  Is my salvation in tact?  And how to bless God?  

To think about blessing Him, before I even think about asking Him to bless me.  I mean after all, He has done for me in my lifetime, is that too much to ask?  Bless God….

Friends, I truly hope you take this to heart.  I could write a book on it.  As I could on so many things God has placed on my heart.  But at this point in my life, I think I just need to focus on blessing Him, and in little things.  A little photo, that I share, a little inspiration, that I call “just my thoughts”...a little prayer for somebody, and just a little chat, as I come to His throne….to tell Him thank you Father.  But always acknowledging Him.  Never ashamed.  How can any of us be ashamed, when He does so much for us?  

Thankful for the miracles. That I can say look what God has done for me.   Every thing He has provided…..

You know…. 

The enemy has blinded so many of us.  Even in our silence….where people do not say anything, even with courage, to acknowledge God.  Cowardly, they do not stand for right. They have no David in them I think…. To go after the Goliath.  

And then….Again with Bibles that are not holy.  Where words are distorted, corrupted, no longer holy.  Where the majesty of God is undermined, in these phony words.  And, in stealing that praise that God so deserves.  By even denying His existence.  By changing His Holy word.  How insulting.  And even worse, you know this truth, but you do nothing.  

But let me tell you a little about the God I know.  Though He is love….He is not mocked.  And He keeps His Holy word.  That I call KJV word.  I know His ways are excellence.  I know prophetic words will come true.  Christ will return.  Christ will come for His own.  And the world, will reap what it sows.  The devil, and all his “accusers” will be sent to hell, and hell is a tormenting place.  The wrath of God will be known.  And many will regret their denial of Him.  Because He cannot be denied.  

If I could plead with you, I would tell you even in this analogy.  Repent.  Get right with God quick!  Use a King James Bible.  Throw those corrupted bibles away.  Part truth, part lie.  

Because we never know.  Throw away pride.  Get hungry and thirsty for righteousness.  Acknowledge God, in all your ways, and He will direct your paths.  Be obedient, not only for your sake, but your family, your loved ones, but more for Him.  

BLESS GOD!

That would bless God.  That would give the devil a black eye.  

Develop your relationship with Him…..  

Its so sweet to know Him.  Jesus, is the perfect example of love.  And I pray, never to take for granted what He did for me on that cross.  His suffering, pain, agony, and by His stripes we are healed.  That means spiritually and physically.  

I could never ever, repay Him for that.  I could not.  I know who I am, and I know how weak I have been.  In so many ways…. it makes me sad.  I did not bless God growing up… but I am so grateful at this moment.  

That I just want to thank Him for everything.  I just want to bless God.  I am not super Christian, I am not trying to puff myself up.  By even writing this.  

But, I will say this….You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am, or what I have gone through.  That even brings me this to write this.  How dare anybody mock someones faith?  With or with out knowing.  

But He does know, and it so humbles me, that pride that characteristic of self is evil.  Its comes from the enemy.  And it has shown me the danger, that I know that is a characteristic of the enemy.  

I want nothing to do with the enemy.  I renounce him, even as I write…..

But I love Jesus, and I thank my God the father, by the Holy spirit….

I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But I want to bless God.  I hope you do too.  

Much love, Elena Ramirez
