DON’T TAKE GOD OR PEOPLE FOR GRANTED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2THEN SHALL THEY CALL UPON ME, BUT I WILL NOT ANSWER; THEY SHALL SEEK ME EARLY, BUT THEY SHALL NOT FIND ME:  FOR THAT THEY HATED KNOWLEDGE, AND DID NOT CHOOSE THE FEAR OF THE LORD:  THEY WOULD NONE OF MY COUNSEL:  THEY DESPISED ALL MY REPROOF.  THEREFORE SHALL THEY EAT OF THE FRUIT OF THEIR OWN WAY, AND BE FILLED WITH THEIR OWN DEVICES.  FOR THE TURNING AWAY OF THE SIMPLE SHALL SLAY THEM, AND THE PROSPERITY OF FOOLS SHALL DESTROY THEM.  BUT WHOSO HEARKENETH UNTO ME SHALL DWELL SAFELY, AND SHALL BE QUIET FROM FEAR OF EVIL.  PROVERBS 1:33 King James.  

This scripture actually gives me the fear of God.  Because when I call on God, I want an answer.  But here, He states, why He will not answer.  Because of those who took Him for granted.  Or rejected Him.  They did not take the time to get to know Him, through Jesus Christ.

I pray for answers.  Even when it seems, like He does not hear me.  But I know to repent.  To be in that place of humbleness.  No matter what.  So I can be quiet from the fear of evil.

I think its terrible, that folks reject God.  Or they think they can only call on God in their convenience.  They take the idea of God for granted.  Like they have time.

People do themselves a great disservice, when they don’t read their King James bibles.  And again, this is a holy bible.  The others are not truth.  They are corrupted.

But when folks reject truth, even their bible…. When they truly do not search for God.  When they try and wing it.  Because the enemy will use that to his advantage, and deceive them, because they do not know truth.

I had a conversation with someone, who promoted hate, and said, God told her it was right.

I told her, well I went to my King James bible, and it told me to love one another.  It told me to pray for my leaders.  It told me there’s a place in hell for the accuser, according to Revelation 12:10 King James.  I told her, that her god was hate.  

If only she could see.  No one knows what time they have been allowed on this earth.  And since tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  I am making sure today, I do not reject God.  I am making sure, my trust and faith is in tact.  Its my job to do that.  I am making sure, to walk in love.  I am making sure, to just release my cares, to Him.

God does not have to jump through hoops for me to keep it.  In fact, when He does not answer me, when I sometimes go through things, that are hard, or just don’t seem fair.  I remind myself, to hold onto Him tighter.  I cannot be tossed to and fro, back and forth in this life.  Not any more.  Time is too valuable to me.  The time He gives me on this earth.  Either I believe, or I don’t, and I choose to believe.  So that means, I embrace God will all my heart and soul.  That means, I stir up my faith, by even reminding others of who He is.  By doing works….

I write this, after an experience, that kind of shook my faith up yesterday.  Or tried to.  And I am not even going to dignify it, because maybe it would bring fear to someone else.  Or maybe even to me.  I just have come too far, to even question, whether or not there is a God.  There is a God, and I will not reject Him.  I love Him.   I will have faith, without freaking out.  So, I will have faith in God.  I will trust Him.  I will not worry.  I will just believe.  I will extend grace, and mercy, because God has extended mercy and grace to me.

It seems some people take God, and other people for granted.  If they did not, they would not hurt them.  I was chatting with a girl on social media.  She was so misled.  She was so mean spirited, to someone.  She hated.  She had fear.  I tried to talk to her, but after a while, her ignorance was so strong, I just walked away from trying to chat with her.  Because that hate, motivated her, to insist she was right.  See, when folks, reject truth, or they reject God who brings truth, there is nothing you really cannot do for them.  But pray.  I suppose.

But if people, would not reject God, they would not reject a true brother or sister in Christ.

They would not abuse them.  They would not ignore them.  I can just see God reaching out to them even through the people they abuse, who has been sent by God, and ignore, the ones they take for granted.

See, God has His ways of trying to teach us sometimes.  Or minister to us.  But some people, reject you, or will not even take the time, to know you truly.

I have lost a few people in my life, that I loved.  But there were times, I felt as if they took me for granted.  But sometimes, I saw things in them, where they rejected Gods truth.  Or they rejected His ways.  His commandments.  I did not want to judge them.  In fact, I wanted to give them grace.  But when I saw they could not give me grace, I walked.

I suppose myself, if I am being totally honest, I can see, the people that I have rejected myself, in my own life.  And its not that I did not appreciate them.  I found that for the most part, the measure I used in friendship, was not the same to them.  Loyalty, honesty, being kind.  Not being sneaky.  Not breaking covenants in prayer.  Having their own motives in friendship.

I wish I had grown up with more of a standard, or more of a guideline, in picking friends,  etc.  I just kind of winged it.  In other words, I would just try and be friends with some folks, and if we clicked, that was great if we did not, well we did not.

And at this point of my life, well I have to be honest, even though, I did give it a good try with some folks, who I accept as no longer accept in my life.  I will never let go of God.  No matter what.  I think of Job.  Job, was so tested.  His friends, challenged him too.  But he prayed for his friends, and God restored him, gave him double for his trouble.

AND THE LORD TURNED THE CAPTIVITY OF JOB, WHEN HE PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS:  ALSO THE LORD GAVE JOB TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE.  JOB 42:10 King James. 

But, now that I am older, I wish I had more of a set of rules to determine, who would treat me kind, and who would not have other motives.  Etc.  I wish I had understood, how to test people, to see, if they would be true.  Because I have lost many friends.  But I can actually see God doing that for me, removing them, from my life.  He knows.  He did the job, for me, even though, I did not know.

I have always believed in God.  But have I taken Him for granted?  I hope not.  But I suppose my own behavior, showed that I did as a kid growing up, because I did not know what sin would do to my life, or how I would reap that.

Life is funny.  Or strange that in the sense, you may go through something, but its how you handle it to begin with, that makes the difference.  Are you including God in it?  Are you trusting Him?  Are you making sure, your relationship is in tact with Him? Praying?

All I know today, even though I am uncertain about something.  I am certain in who God is.  That all things are possible with Him.  That if I want faith, I have to remember, faith is dead without works.  What is works?  Works is making sure, I am serving God.  And I will do that, for Him always.  No matter what He shows me, or does, or does not do.

Version 2

DID YOUR ANCESTORS PASS ONTO YOU A GENERATIONAL CURSE? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3392.jpegI feel led to write this.   I feel it heavy on my heart.  For some reason, this thought keeps coming back to me.  I write it because I want to be obedient to God.  I write it, because well, truth be known.

We don’t know what our ancestors did.  We don’t.  Maybe there are signs, and signals, from what you have learned from your family.  Things that you saw.  Maybe even signs, that told you, whether or not your family served God.  Or did not.  Whether or not they were cursed or blessed.

But look at this scripture very, carefully.

THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF UNTO THEM, NOR SERVE THEM:  FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN UNTO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME. AND SHEWING MERCY UNTO THOUSANDS OF THEM THAT LOVE ME AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.  Deuteronomy 5:9-10  King James.

Religion.  It will tell you to bow down to idols.  It will tell you to pray to others, besides Christ.  But it is religion.  Rules, regulations, traditions, rituals made by men and groups.  But it is not what God says!

Theres a lot of truth and information in those two verses.  But what I have learned about God, is He is jealous.  Look really carefully.  His jealousy, brings a generational curse, to the third and fourth generation.  To those that hate Him.  Thats what it says, if you bow down to them you are telling Him, you hate Him.  Bet you did not know that huh?  Yet, He shows mercy to the thousands, that Love Him, and keep His commandments.

Take a moment and ponder on that.  Idolatry, is very offensive to God.  That could mean, you bow down to a statue.  It could mean, you have a false god.  It could mean, that you do not serve God, but the devil himself.  Have you dabbled in satanic things?  Witchcraft?  Astrology?  Ouija boards?  Are you fascinated with dark movies, scary movies, ghost stories etc?  Do you enjoy Halloween?

These things have spiritual implications.  And folks, do not know what they are doing when they play with spiritual entities that are not from God.  And He is jealous.

I will tell you the truth, you need to fear God.  Even here, you should be concerned.  Repent.  There are consequences, and scripture says we reap what we sow.  But are you experiencing things in your own life, that could have been passed onto you, from the third and fourth generation?

Think about it.  You don’t know.  You don’t know what your ancestors did.  So, why would you play with your salvation now, as well?  Why would you ignore God, when He and only He can break those curses, by the blood of Jesus?

And think about this as well, what are you doing, that is cursing future generations?  Do you really want to pass on curses, because you got God mad, or jealous?  He is not mocked folks.  Galatians 6:7 from a King James tells us we reap what we sow.  He keeps His word.

I know, I have reaped, that which I sowed in many things.  But I also know, how to take things to God now, by repenting.  By being humble.  By serving Him, and only Him.  By fearing Him.  Being careful with spiritual things.  By not flip flopping, because that would only toss me to and fro.  Nope, I hold onto God. By knowing truth from my King James bible. I am not ashamed of who I am in Christ.  I plead the blood of Jesus, in all matters of my life.  Because truth be told.  We don’t know…

We just do not.  Some folks call it luck.  Well, luck is not scriptural.  King James scriptural.  I don’t know if its in any of these fake bibles, that are floating around.  But let me tell you, if you want to hear Gods voice, His true voice, you need a King James.  Those other bibles, are corrupted.  They are not truth.  They are part lies, and part truth.  And how deceiving that is, because the devil does not want you free.  He wants you under the curse.  He is destined for hell, and wants to take every one he can with him.

He wants to deceive us all.  How else can he do that but by changing Gods Holy word, into a filthy rag, that has no anointing, no power, no holiness.  But try telling many of you that, and you get into a rage, and want to fight about Gods word.  Sad. Truth.  Truth stands on its own merit, I don’t have to argue about bibles, I know what God says, in Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and in Revelation 22:18-19.  That last set of King James scriptures should be enough to scare someone, to fear God, and use a King James.  Because your name could be removed from the book of life, and you could be denied to the holy city, when you leave this earth.  Read it, don’t play with that.

But have you noticed our society, does not fear God?  Christianity now a days well….  Its so flaky, in so many ways.  That if it bothers me, I am only wondering what God thinks.

But look, without, going any further with this, without foundation, you really have to look at your own life, and question who you are, where you stand with God, and more importantly, do you have a place in Gods Kingdom when you leave this earth?

The foundation, can only come from Jesus.  And He took the beatings on His own back, to break those curses, that the devil legally uses against you.  If only we truly understood, God and His ways, we would all run to His throne.  But not everybody does.

I am telling you, because you can make it right with God, right now, where you are.  And to be so very clear in conscious, not to offend God.  Because it does bring curses.  Sin, brings curses folks.  We have to see it.

Why do you think our world is the way it is?

Well, lets pray, maybe just maybe you can recognize this, and break the curses, by prayer.  By obedience.  By love.  By forgiveness.  Anything that God tells you to do.  We should all do it, for our own good.

Father, I praise you, Lord, I come to you in the secret place.  Lord, you tell us, that those that dwell in that secret place, shall abide with you.  Under your shadow, almighty God.  You are my refuge, you are my fortress.  

You will deliver me from the fowler, from the noisome pestilence.  You say Lord, that you will cover me with your feathers, and I will be under your wings.  I will trust you.  

Your truth, will be my shield.  My buckler.  I don’t have to be afraid, of terror.  I don’t have to be afraid of anybody but you.  But in a healthy way, to fear you, because of who you are.  

For there is no other god.  There is only you.  You hide yourself, sometimes, but Lord, I seek you, with all my heart, all my soul, all my being.  I love you Lord.  

Nothing can come to me, no curse, no weapon from the enemy, can prosper, if I am right with you.  If there is even a hint of sin, or generational curses.  Lord, I repent.  I repent for them.  I repent for the ignorance of my ancestors.  If  they were ignorant.  

It would be so wonderful to know, when I leave this earth, that they served you.  But we don’t know.  So if there are curses.  Remove these curses.  If there are any.  Lord, I don’t know what my ancestors did.  I don’t know if they obeyed you, or what they did.  I don’t know if they practiced idolatry, or anything evil or ugly in your sight, that brings curses.  

But this moment, this second, I recognize, who you are, and I pray if there are curses, they are broken, by what Christ did on the cross for all of us.  I accept Christ as Lord, and savior.  

I don’t look at life, as luck.  But I look at it, by you.  As the creator of heaven and earth.  My Lord, my savior.  Lord, I know, not every body believes, but I believe in you, and Father, I never want to offend you.  Yet I know, your word, says, every knee, will bow, every tongue will confess Jesus as Lord.  

Father God, my Lord, break generational curses for me, as I seek you.  I plead the blood of Jesus.  I care about future generations, if there may be some.  I pray they would see what Christ did for them on the cross, as well, and make their salvation secure. See, we don’t know Lord, when you could return.  But you will.  

But I do not want to take any chances, with my own being, or the lives of future generations.  I don’t.  I fear you, and praise you, and know that you are God.  Break generational curses off of me, anything that is not of you, that comes from the enemy.  Let it not prosper, let it not have any affect on me.  

I claim the blessings, from you God.  And thank you, for healing me, and my future generations.  I plead the blood of Jesus, in my life, daily. In Jesus name.  Amen.

If you prayed that prayer.  Trust God, folks.  Folks this is a lot of territory to cover, and I have scratched the surface here, and in many of my other writings.  I wrote a book as well.  On this subject.  But you have to do the searching for truth yourself in these matters.  Get a good concordance, or a good bible app, for your device or computer.  Search key words, like curse and blessing.  Deuteronomy, is a good chapter for this.  But search.

AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, WHEN ALL THESE THINGS ARE COME UPON THEE, THE BLESSING AND THE CURSE WHICH I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE, AND THOU SHALT CALL THEM TO MIND AMONG ALL THE NATIONS, WHITHER THE LORD THY GOD HATH DRIVEN THEE.  AND SHALT RETURN UNTO THE LORD THY GOD, AND SHALT OBEY HIS VOICE ACCORDING TO ALL THAT I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY, THOU AND THY CHILDREN WITH AL THINE HEART AND WITH ALL THY SOUL;  DEUTERONOMY 30:1-2 King James.  

 

Blessings and love in Christ,

MY SECRETS GOD HAS GIVEN ME SO ANYONE CAN BE AN EXPERT ON THE BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


POLQPkERTTq%WPR3o%LEZg.jpgYou can be an expert of the Bible.  But let me offer some of these secrets, that I have learned through my lifetime.   I have an understanding of Gods word.  And I am not trying to brag, and I am not in category of being called a Theologian.  

But I have hid Gods word in my heart, and when I need it, I know where to look.fullsizeoutput_1db1.jpeg

It does take diligence.  It takes the desire, to learn who God is, and to understand His ways.  To know Him personally.  It takes the desire to search!!!

For me, God has always tried to teach me, and I have not always been diligent, in this, but for me, falling to the bottom of the barrel, made me search, and I have not stopped searching.

When I say, I was at the bottom of the barrel, this was a time, where I was lost.  Where I was controlled by sin, because I was naive, and I just knew I could not stay there.  I was very misguided as a young woman, and as a teenager.  I had terrible judgment.

But as a child, my mother did try to teach me about who God is, by allowing me to go to Christian vacation, bible schools.  I thank God for that because it helped train me to at least look and search for God.  

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO:  AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  PROVERBS 22:6  KJV. 

There I had participated in Bible memory classes, and there were awards, given to those who could memorize scripture.  I liked the challenge, and would try and memorize Gods word.  And get awards.  Today serving, and surviving, with Gods word, makes the difference to me, and I would never let go of my word, from God. 

But those lessons, I put behind, when I grew up a little.  I wanted to party, but I left God out of the equation.  And sadly, I even denied God. Worse, mistake I could make in my life.

But knowing Gods word, even in the limited amount that I knew as a child, compelled me to seek God, for answers, because I needed answers.  This is how I got out of the bottom of the barrel.  I needed to know why my life was so messed up, for lack of better words.

I knew I had to repent to God, that was taught to me, at an early age.  I knew, I had to clear the slate, so to speak.  Because I knew, scripture said, God would not hear me, if I had sin.  I knew I had reaped my sins.  In other words, the things that I had did in sin, I saw that there were spiritual curses.  

So, I repented.  In fact, I still repent daily, I know how good repentance is for the soul.  I knew Christ died for my sins.  I knew, that He was resurrected.  I began seeing, how powerful His sacrifice was, and it made me come to my knees, and seek God.  Don’t be one of those who mocks repentance.  Did you know that is an indicator of pride?  

So long story short, this was my motive into searching for answers.  And to know God.

The following is just a basic draft, summarized.  I suppose I could turn this into a book, but I want to give you quick tips, so you can in your own way, know God, but also be someone, who can use Gods word, and know Gods word, when facing any kind of situation where Gods word is required to bring light, or insight, even to someone else, who needs to know truth.

But no doubt about it, knowing Gods Holy King James word, enhances your faith.

And this is where, I have grown myself.  Because I know that I know there is a God.

His Holy King James word, has so many capabilities, that I know I am scratching the surface.  But consider healings.  Consider relationships, marriage, and consider there is a word for everything.  All you have to do is search, and pray.  And if you make a vow to God, keep it.  Don’t play around with God.  And don’t treat Him, like an ATM, like the prosperity message teaches.  

But if you wonder why your faith is not strong, it could be very well, because you don’t know Gods word, and what He says.  It could also be because you don’t use a King James.  

This will affect your judgement.  Your words, and outlook:

  1. Ask God to open your eyes to scriptures, He wants you to learn.
  2. Read a King James Bible daily.  I read mine in the morning, and at night, before bedtime.
  3. Get a good Bible app, where you can download the King James bible.  Also there, you can find a good Bible study to read the Bible in a year. 
  4. Write scriptures down.
  5. Remember that the King James has “key” words for you to search where the others do not have those key words, to find the truth.  Even if you do not remember the entire verse, or where it is, if you at least remember a key word, it will help you search.  And find the scripture you need for reference.
  6. Buy a Bible Concordance.  This will have thousands of words, for you to search for scripture references.  This is where those “archaic” words will come in handy.
  7. Consider, creating a scripture journal.
  8. Share scripture with others on social media.
  9. Don’t get lazy, when it comes to knowing scripture, and search.  The secret in this, is that if you have a learning spirit, God will show you wondrous things in His word.
  10.  Get creative using scripture.  I like to post a scripture to a photograph now and then as part of my ministry.  And with all my writings, I apply scripture, as a foundation, so folks, will see, that I am not just talking, the talk, but I have the King James scripture to back it up.
  11. Stay hungry, and thirsty for Gods word.  He will fill you with truth, but you have to want to learn who He is.  
  12. Don’t let your bible get dusty.  A good sign of a well balanced person in Christ is someone whose Bible shows wear and tear on it.

What I have noticed, and this makes me very sad, but I am sure God as well, is that Christians do not know Gods word.  This makes them very vulnerable to the world, to those who hate God, to those who purposely challenge us, as Christians.  You are not completely wearing your armor of God.   And whose fault is that?

When you need a word of God, you should be somewhat familiar, with what God says in a matter, to even be able to go to a King James Bible and do a search with a key word.

These subject matters come up often, but instead of pulling out a scripture to say,  “Thus saith the Lord.”  People are left not knowing truth.

From homosexuality, (which by the way, that word is not in a King James bible) but it is an abomination to God.  

0tcXf%IUQoCwRxTfzpe8sw.jpg 

To abortion.

To even matters of whether or not we should pray for our leaders, these verses, are in a Bible.  Which reminds me, pray for our President.  Don’t you see the spiritual battle America is in?oVVGLhJKTo6LVp1ubRxVEgBut if you don’t open up a King James bible, you won’t get any understanding.

I personally, do not understand this.  Is it laziness?  Is it just pride, to think you can find your own way in life?  But what I will say, is that you have the tool there, but to me, when you don’t know, what God says, you hurt yourselves.  

And I will be totally frank, you are not acting like a true soldier of the Lord, if you don’t know holy word.  The Holy Spirit, cannot prompt you in matters, to even give you discernment, because you won’t learn it, you won’t use it, and you get lazy.  

The sad thing is, that you could be light. You could bring light to the darkness, that blinds yourself, and others.  You could warn someone.  And don’t confuse, warning with judging, because we are called to warn, and love warns.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James.  

Its up to you, but you know, with what I know from Gods word, I know it has built my faith.  It has given me boldness, courage, because I know what God says about some things.  

And no, I do not proclaim to know everything, but everything I know about God is because I searched.  If you don’t search, you only have yourself to blame.  But I actually think its stupid, to ignore, what God says.

Yes, He loves us.  But there will come a time, and in fact, the Holy Spirit, prompted me even this morning, to remind us all, that yes God loves us, but His wrath will be revealed for those who mock and disobey.  Who play at church, and religion.  But have no true substance, who have not taken word to root in their souls.  This is wrong, in His sight.  God is not mocked.  Read Galatians 6:7 from a King James.

And I don’t care who you are, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God, and if you mock God or His truth, that wrath will be revealed.  We all reap what we sow.  Oh my gosh, if you only knew what you are doing, when you deny God, or when you deny His truth, or you mock Him.  

I know, the hard way, I reaped some terrible things, because of my disobedience.  But it made me run to the cross, it made me seek God, and seek His truth.  

And I have the fear of God.

fullsizeoutput_1dcd

I was so spiritually attacked.  I thought, I was losing my mind.  I was so fearful, paranoid, and the enemy knew that, I did not have a strong defense.  Now I roar back like a lion myself, because of who Christ is in me, and at that ugly old devil, and tell him to back off, because I know what God says.  My courage, and boldness, is there.  My armor of God is on, and my sword of truth, which is my King James bible is sharp!  And I remind the devil, he has lost the battle because of Christ.  See I know the Battle is Gods, I know the power of God, this is why I glorify Him, and I will not be ashamed.  And when I know I cannot fight it, or things seem impossible, I am reminded what the Holy King James scriptures say.  That all things are possible with God. I pray, to God, and ask Him to release my angels, by God, to fight those demons, and all I have to do is submit to God, resist the enemy, and the enemy will flee.  

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.  I JOHN 3:8  King James. 

Folks, I don’t know what else to tell you, but start studying His word, don’t be one of those flaky Christians.  Because some day you, and I and the world, will stand before God, and what will He say? fullsizeoutput_1db5.jpeg

Please start using your King James bibles.  Theres a lost world out there, and a battle for souls, and you could win a soul for Christ, but you could also deliver yourself.  

I have given you photographs of scriptures, from a King James.  When you are prompted, look up these words, because they are KEY WORDS and go to a good Bible app.  Or a King James concordance, and search.  I could give you the verse numbers, and chapters.  But then you won’t grow.  Searching yourself, will make you learn and grow. 

This is why you don’t want to use a corrupted Bible, that has changed the words.  You won’t find the truth.   Please search for God, and search for truth. Our world, our country, needs you to be faithful to know what God says, if you call yourself a Christian.

I want you to especially remember this last photograph.  If you want to get into the Holy city, and have your name in the book of life.  You need to know what God says about not using holy word.  

I will share this verse, in this post, because I want you to know exactly what the consequences are, for messing with Gods holy word, and using word that is corrupted.  It is Revelation 22:18-19.  Please note as you read it,  you can be denied access to the Holy city.  You can have your name removed from the book of life.  Don’t play with your salvation.  Learn and know what God says.

Remember these verses, and search!   READ YOUR BIBLE!  Share this, at least try and open someones eyes.  Besides your own….

Blessings, in Christ,

WHEN YOU COME TO A POINT WHERE YOU TRUST GOD & OBEY HIM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2052.jpeg

There are days, when things seem so clearer.  Revelations from God.  And where you just come to a point, and you are not giving up.  

But you are giving into God, and totally trusting Him, obeying Him, walking in love, seeking to keep His commandments, and just  letting go, and letting God.  

You speak it, because thats where the commitment comes in.  You tell yourself, just trust God, just obey Him.  Do your part.  I search in my King James, bible for these truths.  Because its Holy word, not changed. And God speaks to me.  

You realize that this is the key, to life.  To make sense.  To come to grips with situations.  Because life is so unpredictable.  But to over and over struggle, is just not healthy.  

Sometimes you let go.  

Yet, there is a part of me, that is actually very stubborn, where I hold on.  Where I won’t give up hope.  But it is because I am holding onto God.  It is not over, till He says its over.  Then I will totally let go.  But if I see a glimmer of hope, I am holding onto that thought.  I trust God.  But I have to obey. 

I guess, because I am older now, and I have always loved God, but you know sometimes, I have struggled with things.  I have struggled, with people.  I have struggled, with my own self worth.  And I am actually tired of dealing with these things in my mind.

The scripture says, there is no peace to the wicked.  I don’t try to be wicked.  I don’t try to hurt anybody, I don’t try to disobey God. For many years, I have tried to be kind, forgiving, loving.  Yes obedient….

I have tried not to open spiritual doors, that brings curses.  But I suppose that sin nature can creep in, if I don’t totally submit to God.  And resist the devil.  So I try to watch myself in these spiritual matters.  

But I am blunt, and that can hurt.  But I know some truths, about who God is, and I know what His word says, in some ways, and I try to share it.  Some think or feel it’s judging.  I feel like its warning, and thats what I try to do, on occasion.  They cannot handle me.  Well thats o.k.  I don’t need to be handled.  But it would have been nice, if I had been accepted.  With love, and friendship.  In Christ.  

Anyway, I am facing something right now, where I am weary.  I don’t have the bounce I used to.  And it seems to be a distraction, where I have not been able to give full attention to this, and I keep thinking about the past, and the friends, I love.  It does seem like the enemy has been trying to attack me.  In matters of friendship. But I do rebuke that, and plead the blood of Jesus in that.  

And I just have come to a place where, I am saying Lord, I trust you.  

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART: AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  PROVERBS 3:5  KJV.  

I cannot try to second guess, or trouble shoot something, or analyze it so much.  That would be inclining to my own understanding, and here in this scripture God is saying don’t do that.  Just trust me.  He says….

Now when push comes to shove.  I just have to trust God.  I have to coast.  Go with the flow.  Float, hang on. Ride it out.  

I realize, though, and I always have realized that I have my part in this.  On how it goes.  In the spiritual realm of things.  God is a spirit, and so I worship Him, in spirit and in truth.  Whether people agree.  Whether people want to have anything to do with me, is really not my concern.  In the sense, that people, cannot dictate to me, by their actions, by their love, or hate, whether or not I care.  

Because I care what God thinks.  I care, if I please God.  

I have had relationship problems with people for most of my life, where they just seem to go.  Even family.  And yes friends.  

The family that left, did not mean to leave me.  But some did.  They wanted nothing to do with me.  

Friends is where I had hope in.  I adopted people, as family.  Because I did not have a strong family foundation.  Growing up.  But I do now.  God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and son.  

But, Friends in Christ.  Well, those did not last.  And that has grieved me, greatly, I did not want to accept it.  But I do now, because I thought the foundation was in love, and God is love, and He never fails.  But people do.  

Its not all lost, don’t get me wrong. I think I have a couple of friends left, and I just need to say that.  But I don’t want to intrude on those frienships.  I want to cherish them, but I am a little afraid, that they will go too….  So I think I am keeping my distance.  I don’t want to, but I am afraid to get close to friends any more.  

I think I have a bit of PTS.  (Post Traumatic Syndrome)  You know like a warrior has, a soldier, who has been in the war zone.  

Where I have had a bit of stress, from this, and it is just making me very cautious, and not paranoid, I hate to use that word, because God has not given me a spirit of fear.  But where I am just not able to trust.  To be honest.  I am afraid to trust friends again.  And that is sad.  

But let me add because I never know who my audience is, is that I know, and believe God can heal anything.  Anything!  Nothing is impossible with God, as the scriptures state. Spiritually, physically, emotionally, whatever.  He can heal it.  And that’s always my hope.  But right now, this is where I am.  

Where I guess, I kind of expect some folks to leave, if they are friends.  Because most of them have left.  And when I think about it, it bothers me.  Like its a bad track record.  And I guess, I have blamed myself.  But I am tired.  And I say I forgive, but maybe I have not.  Maybe I resented.  And maybe, it has hurt me, spiritually.  Because it may be sin.  I don’t know.

But because I am in the position I am in now, and I am tired.  I am actually telling God, to bless those who have hurt me.  To comfort them.  To give them wisdom, love and understanding.  I am saying this, even though, I have felt abandoned by some folks.  I did not understand it.  

But I cannot hold onto it any more.  I release it.  Like a balloon, and if it pops somewhere oh well.  Or like a gift, that just brings joy.  But I am not holding onto it.  I am trusting God, and just letting go, and letting God. Walking in love, forgiving.  

Trying to change my heart, because my mind is changing.  I change it willingly to remind myself to seek Gods heart.  So I can have Gods mind.  The mind of His son, our Lord, Christ. 

Hoping that the release, will release me, in the spirit.  So I can go on….To whatever the will of God is.  

Its the holy week.  A few days before Resurrection Sunday.  And I am just trying to reconnect more with my Lord.  I am trying to be strong, in love, and forgiveness, as Christ was, and is.  I am reminded of His sacrifice, and that there was no greater sacrifice.  Then what He did.  I am being quiet.  Avoiding social media.  The toxicity of that, politics. etc.  

There is a part of me, where I don’t understand, those who do not take His word, and love to heart.  But maybe thats not my place.  

Maybe I am just called to walk alone, without these people, but love them in my heart anyway.  Isn’t that what Christ did, in the sense, that He takes all these sins, thoughts, and just covers them with love?  

And I feel like emphasizing that thought in love.  Just love them.  Be grateful, they touched your life.  Even though they are not near me.  For whatever reasons.  Just remember the good times, just hold them close, in hope and thought, because God loves them too.  Pray for them, because you know their weak points.  Pray, God helps them.  Remember the laughs, remember the joy.  The times, we prayed, or had fellowship, and it was all so very good.  It really was…..But I cannot miss it, any longer, or long for it, because then it holds me back.  

And I think if I can do that, I can let go, I can release them all in sweet feelings.  I can have peace about it.  I am going to call that obeying God, and trusting God in the matter.  Because thats where I am at this point.  

But in there is a place of reconciling with Him, to love Him, and to just come to that point, where you totally release everything to Him, because He is God.  Because you see, you cannot control it, or take care of it always. But He can….

A BLESSING, IF YE OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY:  DEUTERONOMY 11:27  KJV.  

Hope that makes sense, but that’s “Just My Thoughts” today….I love the Lord.  

AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.  ROMANS 8:28  KJV.

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.

ITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0034.jpgITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Iron sharpens iron, as the scripture says:  

IRON SHARPENETH IRON; SO A MAN SHARPENETH THE COUNTENANCE OF HIS FRIEND.  PROVERBS 27:17  KJV.

What does that mean? It means that we sharpen each other, as brothers and sisters, friends, in Christ,  with Gods Holy King James word.  By sharing it, by encouraging each other.  With love, By bringing light into darkness, to illuminate truth, Gods Holy truth.  To show others truth, to get them away from hells fire.  To show them, Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  

So you use it to fight the enemy, and you are victorious.  

You see the word of God, is a sword.  And it will cut.  It will stop the devil in His tracks.  

FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK, AND POWERFUL, AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWOEDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF THE JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART.  HEBREWS 4:12  KJV.  

It needs to be sharp, to be effective.  I am here even now trying to sharpen iron.  

It is actually very sad, and pathetic, to see the body of Christ in the state its in now.  Because I see a lot of sloppy agape.  A lot of judgment, a lot of Christians, who have embraced the prosperity message, and when they need a word, they do not have it.  

And if the words they do find, somehow or another, find a way to communicate the words are not holy word!  They are corrupt word. They are counterfeit word, because the word has been tampered with, and they disobeyed God in this.  

The KJV is holy, and has withstood time, (over four hundred years) and is stored in heaven and earth.  

BUT THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WHICH ARE NOW, BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN.  II PETER 3:7  KJV.  

When a Christian uses the KJV they are on the same page, with God almighty Himself.  There are many scriptures that tell us, to not mess with His word.  

And He says do not change it, add to it, or delete it.  And so when a Christian uses those corrupt versions, which I call a per-version, it is deceptive.  But God does not change in these matters.   Because He looks at those who do as liars.  

EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE:  HE IS A SHIELD UNTO THEM THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM.  ADD THOU NOT UNTO HIS WORDS, LEST HE REPROVE THEE, AND THOU BE FOUND A LIAR.  PROVERBS 30:5-6.   KJV.  

And maybe I can sharpen someone, to see, how important knowing Gods true, King James word is.  For it is anointed.  It is powerful, it is holy.  

And in these times that we are in, I see how, the enemy has deceived so many.  By not knowing King James word, by not using King James word, by not sharing word.  

The body of Christ is dull right now, sadly.  And pathetically.  And the enemy rejoices.  

Have you ever tried to have an intelligent conversation, or a healthy debate with someone, concerning what God says, and they try to articulate what they think or feel, but they do not even have the scriptures to back it up?

Now I am not going to brag or puff myself up, but I know my sword of truth.  I know what God says in many instances.  And people are so deceived, because they believe the lies.  

They follow the blind, because they are blind.  They do not obey God, in these matters.  They don’t know truth, so they put others on a pedestal, and are misled.  

And one thing they are misled in is in the fear of God.  The body of Christ is not taught that, and because of that, they err.  

I fear God.  Because there are consequences.  

THEN SHALT THOU UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.  PROVERBS 2:5.  KJV.

All I know, is when the light is not on, we are not shining for Christ.  We are not to hide our light under a bushel.  

NO MAN WHEN HE HATH LIGHTED A CANDLE, PUTTETH IT IN A SECRET PLACE, NEITHER UNDER A BUSHEL, BUT ON A CANDLESTICK, THAT THEY WHICH COME IN MAY SEE THE LIGHT.  LUKE 11:33 KJV.  

But have you asked yourself….  Maybe you don’t shine your light, because you don’t know KJV word?  And only you can answer that.  But maybe you need to get your self in gear, as a disciple of Christ, and learn it.  By discipling yourself. 

In fear of Him, to tell others the truth of the gospel.  For, its not even that people are hiding their light for Christ.  But maybe….Its because there is no true light in them.  Or maybe because the word they are studying is not true word.  And….They don’t know the true word, and they cannot shine for Christ.  And thats exactly what the devil wants.  

Shame on any of us, who do not shine for Christ!  Shame!

TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY:  IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  Isaiah 8:20  KJV.  

It says according to this word, not any word that has been changed.  Its very sad, and pathetic.  That many do not see the deceptions.  

That many do not sharpen their own swords.  That many are silent.  Now I understand why they are, because they do not know Gods word, and its exactly again, what the enemy wants.  

I could go on, and on here, about it, but you know my writings, you know I promote the King James.  And you know, I share word.  King James word. 

Recently, I had a conversation with someone, I love dearly, and I still do, but this person, who I esteemed highly, so wanted to challenge me, argue with me, debate me about word, but yet could not even voice it, or articulate it, because she had no true light in her.  

So, what did she do?  She tried to turn it around, and mock my walk with the Lord.  At least “I try,” I told her.  No, I am not the perfect Christian, but I will try for Christ, and what He did on that cross for me.  No, I won’t sit idle, and lazy, and not praise God, and give the enemy a place.  No I will use what God has given me, and at least TRY!

I will not be cowardly, not when I have the greatest weapon, my sword of truth, and I need to sharpen myself in these matters.  But I will try!  

For some day, I will stand before God, and I want and long to hear, well done, good, and faithful servant.  

To not try, is to not care, and I will not be counted with the goats.  Even now Christ is separating the goats from the sheep.  

AND BEFORE HIM SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS:  AND HE SHALL SEPARATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDETH HIS SHEEP FROM THE GOATS:  MATTHEW 25:32.  KJV.  

I submit to God, totally, I resist the devil and he must flee, but what has taught me that, IS the fear of God, that I have learned from my King James.  

The world mocks us, they call us “Bible Thumpers” and I get righteously indignant, when I see them do that, and yes, I will fight with Truth.  With my sword, of truth.

Because this is how we know our God!  This is how we learn what He accepts and does not accept.  This is how we get discernment to know right from wrong, good and evil. And for us not to use this tool that God gives us, is just down right ignorant and stupid,  to mock it, or ignore it.  

Sorry if that offends, ANYBODY, but its true, we are in a sad state as the body of Christ. 

There are so many Christians, who could make a difference for the Kingdom of God, and they do not shine their lights, and they do not know word, and they let the enemy win.  

Its sad, I have no other words, that can even distinguish it, because it is pathetic.  

What does God see? All I know, is never stop learning, never stop sharing Gods word, and never take that sword of truth for granted.  

I implore you my brothers and sisters in Christ, learn the word!  Keep studying daily.  Write it, and share it, and sharpen your own sword.  For iron, sharpens iron.  

I love you in Christ, but I love my Lord more, and I, as His ambassador in Christ, implore you, to keep growing.  In holy King James word.  

NOW THEN WE ARE AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST, AS THOUGH GOD DID BESEECH YOU BY US, WE PRAY YOU IN CHRIST’S STEAD, BE YE RECONCILED TO GOD.  II CORINTHIANS 5:20  KJV.   

You are on the vine, stay connected to Christ.  If not, your branch will be thrown into the fire.  

IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, AND IS WITHERED; AND MEN GATHER THEM, AND CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED.  JOHN 15:6.  KJV. 

Don’t think your salvation is in tact, if you have no light, and you do not abide in Christ.  Look at this scripture, among others, I am called to warn, you are called to warn, (read Ezekiel 33) but if you have no true word, you cannot tell them they will be cast into the fire.  

If ever another scripture was meant to tell us, our salvation can be taken away from the book of life, this one tells us, we could be cast into the fire, and burned.  You wither away, by not having true word.

You cannot portray the fruits of the spirit, if you are not obedient to God in this and other matters.  

WHAT FRUIT HAD YE THEN IN THOSE THINGS WHEREOF YE ARE NOW ASHAMED?  FOR THE END OF THOSE THINGS IS DEATH.  ROMANS 6:21 KJV.  

We cannot be hypocrites, or be in denial, or really an enemy to self, by denying these truths.  We need word, holy word.  King James word. We need to keep growing.  

Look again, I am far from being perfect.  I know my flaws.  I know I have had terrible judgment.  I have sinned, I have made mistakes, I grieve over.  But I take them all to the cross, even now, and humble myself, in the sight of God, and others.  And repent, yes daily. 

But I am not the tail.  I am the head, because HE IS THE GREAT I AM.  Because I am His daughter.  Because I plead the blood of Jesus.  Because I repent, And I seek to know His ways, and I implore you, please learn, His truths.  Please obey.  

Someday we all will stand before  Him. And He is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  I don’t judge you in this, but I warn you.  In love.  I sincerely, try to teach you this, so you can be the best you can be in Christ.

LET HIM THAT IS TAUGHT IN THE WORD COMMUNICATE UNTO HIM THAT TEACHETH IN ALL GOOD THINGS.  BE NOT DECEIVED:  GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING.  AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING:  FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. GALATIANS 6:6-9  KJV.

Its not too late for any of us while we breathe, move, live and have our being in Christ.  We can make a difference for the body of Christ.  

But don’t be lazy, let us not be weary in well doing.  Learn, share, and grow in Christ.  By knowing King James word.  You would only have yourself to blame, if you do not heed my advice in this matter.  

FOR IN HIM WE LIVE, AND MOVE, AND HAVE OUR BEING: AS CERTAIN ALSO OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, FOR WE ARE ALSO HIS OFFSPRING.  ACTS 17:28 KJV.

I implore you, before Christ knocks on your door, invite Him in, and repent of sin, let Him teach you His ways, for truth and life.  Taking away the spirit of strife that comes from rebellion, and sin, let Him teach you, how to begin…..Take your KJV sword of truth, and let it give you the mind of Christ.  To find your path and avoid His wrath….

MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE:  BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I WILL ALSO REJECT THEE, THAT THOU SHALT BE NO PRIEST TO ME:  SEEING THOU HAST FORGOTTEN THE LAW OF THY GOD, I WILL ALSO FORGET THY CHILDREN.  HOSEA 4:6.  KJV.  

Much love, in Christ,

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
