One thing, I have seen, is people do not know how to apologize. Maybe they repent to God, I don’t know. But I have seen especially here on social media, FB, Twitter, and other networks, is that people, really hide behind their computers.

They say spiteful, mean attacking words, that really do not bring light, or substance. And I don’t know, I have had a few battles myself. Where maybe I brought it on myself.

But when I am wrong. I apologize. I don’t let it pass, without humbling before God, and others. I have sometimes, just wished someone well, Gods blessings, and they took my words, and wanted to argue. This recently happened. And I could not understand it.

But I don’t have to take it either. And if someone cannot show me some respect. I don’t need to further communicate with that person. I forgive. But I don’t put up with that kind of nonsense.

I have enough self respect, dignity, and better sense, then to go in the gutter, with someone, who does not want to be reasonable. Especially when I know in my heart, I do not have an ulterior motive, to make someone look bad.

Its sad, Christians, in particular, who still have the ways of the world, in their actions, but have not seen that Christ called us to love one another, to be humble, and to forgive.  I would think that also includes apologizing.  I just don’t think we see, how this holds us back.  How we cannot grow.  How we can get roots of bitterness. How we open a door to the devil.  Folks, this is spiritual warfare.  We have to see, what are we doing!  

In this election process, I have seen filth come out of some people, that say they are Christians.

And I ask myself, where is the love, that Christ said we would be known by? Oh well. Repenting, asking God to show us who Christ is, and yes apologize.  If you call yourself a Christian, love should be there!  You cannot have it, if you cannot learn to apologize, that means being humble.  That means throwing away that pride.  It means asking God….

To forgive you.  It means, that we reap what we sow.  Do you want to reap rudeness, mean spirits coming your way, because you are unable to apologize?  Folks, there is a spiritual realm, and God sees.  Do we want to be corrected harshly by Him, because we think we are better then somebody else?  

Remember whom He loves He corrects.  He loves you, but He is a well mannered God, kind and does not resort to being rude. We have to try and do things the way of the Lord.  Being rude, hateful, unapologetic, is not fruit of the spirit, and you need to watch it.  We all do.  

My thoughts anyway…..

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You can quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Blessings, and love,

You might have a nice view, but you cannot see the bars that contain you. In your own device of jail.

Bullies, they are every where.  I think more so, then ever.  And you pray, you are delivered away from a bully.  I have met a few bullies, in my lifetime, to hurt me, and I pray, never to meet one again.  Nor to be one.  

But may God deal with the bullies that hurt innocent people.  And He will.  This is why I even write from the beginning bullies need to repent to God.  

AN EVIL MAN SEEKETH ONLY REBELLION:  THEREFORE A CRUEL MESSENGER SHALL BE SENT AGAINST HIM.  PROVERBS 17:11.  

When you are young, and just trying to grow, trying to learn, trying to be accepted, and then you meet a bully, it can change your perspective.

The first time, I met a bully, who hurt me, was in my school, in Junior High.  She was in my gym class.  After gym, for no reason, other then her hate, she hit me, in the nose.  She broke my nose.  There was no argument, or anything or any reason to do this.  She just did it.  

But even if there was, one should not react to people like that.  She hurt me, for years afterwards by that one attack.  That I have had to deal with physically.  And I won’t get into details.  

Her name was Pat.  And I will always remember her.  I remember, my mother, going to her home, and talking to her mother.  No apology, no sense of the wrong.  She was in denial.  

I guess I am writing about bullies this morning, because I had an interesting conversation with a “friend” on social media.  

Her name is Pat.  And her post yesterday, was about her daughter, and grand children.  She was actually laughing, with pride, that her daughter, who is now an adult, was having to deal with a child, who is now a bully.  Because the daughter was a bully.  And the cops, actually paid her a visit, with a warning.  I am not sure of all the details.  But what I sensed was a defiance, and that she felt justification.  She was belligerent and was strangely, oddly, so prideful, in this, that she did not see the wrong of it.  As she laughed.  

I confronted her.  And just told her, I thought, her humor was odd, and that this was not funny.  And I explained to her a little of my history, with this girl who broke my nose.  And that, history repeats itself.  Why would she be proud of a bully?  Her grand babies could reap the same, from someone else.  The consequences could cause this person to also be disciplined with jail etc.  

You do not go around, hurting people.  Being a bully.  Its wrong in the sight of God.  She could not handle the truth.  So she unfriended me.  But I still pursued it, and sent her a message.  That I was trying to be her friend, but friends are honest, and say truth.  I told her to repent.  Its a spiritual thing, that has latched on to her, and her family, and the only thing that can break the curse of it, is the love, and blood of Jesus Christ.  Will she do it?  I have no idea, if she even got my message.  

You have to teach your kids love.  They see this, they learn from it. It can be a generational curse.  But you have to break it.

It even begins with the way you treat animals.  With compassion, because they are helpless.  

A RIGHTEOUS MAN REGARDETH THE LIFE OF HIS BEAST: BUT A THE TENDER MERCIES OF THE WICKED ARE CRUEL.  PROVERBS 12:10  

But it made me think, how much we see, even in the news, or we can relate in our own lives.  That bullies do exist.  For whatever reason, power, or money, or prestige, or even the lack of these things, can make people be mean, cruel, and they turn into bullies.  Even with rejection.  The enemy, and his ugly characteristics is to kill, steal, and destroy.  But Christ came to give life.  The mind can deceive people.  The battle can be won in the mind.  But one must strive to have the mind of Christ.  In love.  

Even in this presidential campaign, there is one bully, we all see.  This bully speaks truth sometimes, but there is something about this bully, that is intimidating, because this bully wants to be the president of the United states.   

With power, one can do much.  Good or evil.  But if we do not harness, and control, with the grace of God any kind of personal power we have.  We have lost control.  We have to see the error of our ways.  Someone who is a loose cannon, with their emotions.  I don’t trust.  

There are bullies in and on the internet.  They say things, to others, that they might not normally say to people in life, but they say things, to hurt, as they hide behind their computers.  Cowardly.  

Bullies, can be cowards.  Because their boldness, their outrage, to hurt, usually comes by hurting someone who cannot defend themselves, so they can look powerful.  

Love makes you consistent.  In a pattern with Christ.  To be kind, compassionate, and considerate of others.  Not to react, with a bully mentality, that only wants to hurt.  Thats actually evil.  

You know, this attack, I got as a young girl.  Taught me to be a warrior.  I will not let myself, be intimidated, or helpless.  I know how to defend myself.  Spiritually, I pray to God.  He defends me.  He deals with my enemies.  And I know He does.  I have seen some who have hurt me, receive correction.  This has taught me to forgive.  You see, scripture tells us, we reap what we sow.  Some would call it Karma, but thats not scriptural.  You need to see it from scripture.  King James scripture.  

But even physically, He taught me how to fight, and fight back.  I cannot even count the many fights, I was involved in.  Growing up, I grew up around a lot of bullies myself.  And that strange spirit, can be caught like a cold.  For there were times myself, being in that environment, I was a bully.  Not proud to say it.  But I was. 

Not much, of one.  But the tendency was there.  People learn this. We can all learn, from the “Pats” in our lives.  And you don’t want it in your life.  You need God, and Christ to always be the example.  

God has been so good to me.  But some of my problems.  Some of my heartache is because of bullies.  Its not a healthy thing. To be a bully.  It is not.  You may think you are entitled to be one.  But its ugly.  Bullies really do have to repent.  And why, because again, you do not want to reap it in your own life.  

THE MERCIFUL MAN DOETH GOOD TO HIS OWN SOUL, BUT HE THAT IS CRUEL TROUBLETH HIS OWN FLESH.  PROVERBS 11:17. 

Bullies need to repent.  And thats all I have to say on the subject.  

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez
