LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER: FEAR GOD AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN.  FOR GOD SHALL BRING EVERY WORK INTO JUDGMENT, WITH EVERY SECRET THING, WHETHER IT BE GOOD OR WHETHER IT BE EVIL.  ECCLESIASTES 12:13-14

Have you ever had an identity crisis?

I have, and I was not out of mind, but I was confused, and when I was confused I made a lot of bad choices.  And I won’t get into a lot of who I was, but let me just say this with clarity, when I truly accepted Christ, as my Lord and savior, and I made the decision to obey God, and to take His word to heart, literally my mind changed, my perspective changed, and I no longer had an identity crisis.  I finally came to realize who I was with all the mistakes I made, and yes my sins, that were now covered by the blood of Jesus, I received the mind of Christ.  So no, I don’t have an identity crisis.  I know who I am in Christ.

And so as I observe my beautiful America, I see we as a nation are in the midst of an identity crisis.

America before I go on, understand the “WHOLE MATTER”, that we need to fear God and keep His commandments.  This could be said for any nation, but since I am an American born and raised, fourth generation citizen, I am very concerned.   I will not judge my country, and condemn it.  As I write this.  But because I love this country, I pray we open our eyes, and see we need God to guide us to get us out of this identity crisis.

Yet, by some of the actions of some, isn’t that what they are doing, in their own identity crisis by not keeping Gods commandments and fearing Him?  They are confused, and making decisions that affects us all. We will ALL be judged.

But before we are judged, I want to talk about the choices we have. I want to make this simple not complicated.  To help us see, and get us out of this identity crisis.   Because God is a gentleman, and He gives us choices.  To either be good or evil, moral, or immoral.  We have that choice and if we have chosen wrong, we can make the change, to choose good.  The moral choices that separate us from those that do not.  There is hope for us, as a country. There is hope for us individually. We can find our way again.

But it does begin with knowing Christ, in fear of God and the consequences. And there will be consequences.  Just open up a King James Bible, and see what they are.  It scares me, to see the direction we are going in, as a nation.  But I know God, and I know my rights as an American and I know, and see we are headed in the wrong direction.

When you know God, you know who you are and as an American, I know my rights by the Constitution and as a Christian, one can see whats happening.  I write this, because I care.

And what I have observed lately, is that my beautiful America, seems to have a case of an identity crisis.

Its like we don’t know who we are any more.  We are one nation under God.  Whether people agree with that or not, we are.  Our foundation, created by God’s plan and our forefathers created the Constitution, so our rights would be protected. And there are some of us, yes quietly observing, and seeing our beautiful country, with beautiful traditions, and a beautiful Constitution being undermined, and being rejected.  Literally, before our eyes.

We are the land of the free. And if we are free we realize, in “GOD WE TRUST.”  But with freedom, comes great responsibility.  Yes, to our Lord Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins.  And to the men and women, who have valiantly served us in this country, so our rights, our freedoms would be protected, and that our Constitution would be upheld, and honored.  Some have died, and suffered greatly for us as a nation.  Can we not see this?  Even the families of our veterans have sacrificed.  Letting their loved ones go off to serve our country.  Freedom is not free, a price was paid for freedom.  But if we do not see the value of this, we will choose evil and we will choose immoral.  In this false sense of identity.

But seriously, how can we choose good, and moral if we do not uphold, and honor the word of God, the commandments of God?  How can we truly be a nation under God, if we just pick and choose what we want, and reject the “whole matter” concerning our nation, and concerning who we can be in God?

It will be either good or evil, by the choices we make, and the end result will show what we have chosen.  I am concerned.  I am saddened, by the events of our world right now, but in our country, there are things that are being accepted, that totally go against who we are.

We do seem to have an identity crisis.  Years ago, history, shows us that we knew who we were.  And we fought, a good fight of faith, to be victorious for others, and to show who we were as Americans.  We are such a great nation, because of our freedom, but because we upheld this nation.  We knew who we were and the”rule of the land” was accepted, and honored.

But there are some who do not honor that “rule of the land” and we allow them to come into our nation, or even those who are home grown, do we allow them to dictate, what freedoms we should have?

For any person, to deny someone any freedom even to express who they are as an American, that is wrong.  When I read reports of people not being able to raise their American flag, because it may offend someone that is wrong.  When I hear reports of people not being able to pray at a game, or in their school, or even mention the Lords name that is wrong.  When I read reports of children at schools, being denied Christmas traditions because it may offend someone else that is just wrong!  When I read that the cross, is brought down, because it offends someone, that makes me righteously angry!  Christ died for our freedoms.  When I read our military are denied freedom to pray, is this true?  

Every day, every single day I hear or read something in the news, and I wonder why is it allowed?  I mean there are so many things I read and see that just make me shake my head, and I cannot believe how Americans have no sense of what is moral and immoral, of good and evil, and the choices that are made.  And what about what is not reported?  In the news?  Why is valuable information that protects Americans not reported?  Why are some entities of media not telling us all the truth?

So with further understanding, I don’t understand why we are so confused, as Americans and yes are silent.  Is it because one does not know who they are?

Why are we allowing this? Do we not know who we are?  As Americans, and as people of God, who yes do believe?  Look if you don’t want to believe in God that is your right, your choice.  But I do believe, and that is my choice and my right. I believe in my King James Bible, and I believe in the fear of God, that we will reap what we sow. I believe in the Constitution. And if we do not stand for that which is right, we will see all of our rights taken away.  We will be confused.

We are in some strange times to say the least.  I am not going to blame any one individually except that ugly old devil, who does deceive, and yes wants to confuse all of us…That is Gods enemy, and we do not fight flesh and blood….Friends from the beginning of time, it was a battle of good and evil.  If you know your Bible, you know God wins the battle.  

But if we do not learn real quick who we are, and uphold the old ways…..the ways of God, and the Constitution we are in trouble.  Are we going to wake up, before its too late?

It is a choice for good or evil of moral and immoral!

America please wake up!   I do pray, our leaders would choose the old ways, and that those we have elected, would have courage, to stand up for whats right not only for America but to know what Gods word says, and they have fear of God, in doing whats right.   For this country.  Decisions that are being made now, will affect our future generations, if Christ does not return soon.  I pray our leaders would not be confused, or condone evil.  If not we will be judged, and it will not be for good, but for evil, and not for moral but immoral…..

I pray, as Christians individually we would be strong ourselves, and Christian leaders would speak truth, and not sugar coat or deny the word of God.  By compromising it.

I want my nation to be saved.  I want my old America back, where there was just a beautiful sense of who we were as Americans, and yes the law of the land was upheld.  WE did not have an identity crisis.

And I want people all people of all nations to be saved, as the gospel states but it does not come by ignoring truth.  This is not a message of hate, but of love.  I love America.  And I want to love all people, as my Lord commands us, but He tells us to Love Him first, and if we love Him, we will keep His commandments.   And even though, I want to love all people as the commandment states with wisdom I do understand, all people do not love me, or us, as a nation.  Because they do not love God.  So the battle is His!  Again in God we trust.  

So if I reach a nation, to get us out of this identity crisis wonderful!  Glory to God.  But if I just reach only one person who has an identity crisis, and knows this message is for them!  That is also wonderful and glory to God!  This is a team effort.  As a nation, as Christians individually, who heed the call.  Who understand truth, who understand, we need to get the mind of Christ, and get back to what is right.  

Please pray for our nation.  Please pray, that we get back on the right path.  Please pray, that we know who we are in Christ, (if you are a Christian) Please pray, that we all have courage.  Please just pray…..

We need God more then ever.  We need to repent, and clean the slate.  We need to be united, as Americans, and not fighting one another.  We need to help our nation.  Yes it is wonderful to help other nations, but there are many suffering Americans who do not have food on their table.  And what about our Veterans, some don’t even have jobs?  Our American kids have a hard time getting jobs, let alone our senior citizens who also want to work.  

We have to take care of ourselves first, so we can take care of others, but it means getting right with God.  It means we need to get our priorities straight, before we can even lose this identity crisis.  We can once again be the great nation we were intended to be.    

United we stand, divided we fall.  America please do not have an identity crisis…..Not now or ever.  We need to get back to truth, and what God says, and what this nation stands for.  To be free, the land of the free.  May God bless America, but may we America bless God.  

And as I conclude this, we need to see we need a moral compass.  To get back on track.  If the word of God is not upheld, how do we expect the law of the land to be honored?   We need God!    

Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Shall I not visit for these things? saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭5‬:‭22-29‬ KJV)

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?

Writing for the glory of God, is the greatest joy, I receive in my gifts and callings. I have always been able to express myself, via writing. It comes naturally to me. I do not get “writers block” because as I submit to God, and His truth according to my King James Bible, the insight, and inspiration comes so naturally to me. My mission, is to bring glory to God in my writing, and speak a word of truth to the Lost, and yes inspire Gods children. So whenever, I have a chance to write for my Lord, I feel honored, that He would choose me to be an expression of His Kingdom, and love.

What do your fans mean to you?

I am always honored, if people see God through my writing. But I want to be careful. Glory and honor, goes only to God. Sure, I enjoy, being favored, and having people be inspired, by my writings. But I don’t want them to see me. I want them to see God, in everything I write. I want God to be so honored and exalted by anything I do or write. Jesus gave us the ultimate sacrifice of love, and I just want people to see His love and truth in my writings.

Tell us about your blogs.

I have a few blogs on the internet. But my most used, and successful blog is entitled: “Elena’s Just My Thoughts:…. Here I write posts that can have an impact on a person, searching for truth, answers, and inspiration. Subject matter can relate to faith, as well as issues that concern family matters, prayer, and so much more. Go to these links if you want to see more.  And yes sign up for the other blogs.  Feel free to share this post with your friends as well, so they can get inspiration too.  

Who are your favorite authors?

I am biased, and I will say this, my favorite author is God, and the inspiration I get from my King James Bible. HE is not the author of confusion. I CORINTHIANS 14:33 FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS. (There is a hint in this, perhaps a riddle, but the truth of who God is, as a writer can bring it to truth. Ask me, and I will tell you the answer to the riddle. To eliminate confusion.)So, yes, in further contemplation of this question, there are many outstanding, and wonderful authors, that do inspire me. But I am careful to be cautious, in who I recommend, when it comes to spiritual matters. And who I recommend as authors. I have seen some who I so admired, and then they may do something, that may go against the truth or they will water down scripture, etc. So, lets just leave this as it is……

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

Hope in God. Inspiration, from the Lord, that tells me, no matter what I am feeling, or going through, God can change my circumstances. I suppose this is why I wrote my book. “How to Have Faith ~ My Secret Principles of faith with a true and living God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Because I have been at the bottom of the barrel, I have been down and out. I have learned to have faith, and even the hard way. But God….He has taught me never, ever to let go. Because with God all things are possible. With just this scripture, I can have inspiration to start my day. And not only survive, but thrive. BEHOLD I AM THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH: IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME? JEREMIAH 32:27.

When you’re not writing, how do you spend your time?

My relationship with God, my family, and home, are the most pleasurable things I find in life. Its not always the big things, but the quiet time, and inspiration I get to refresh myself, in my time, that pours so much into me. Spending time, with true Christian friends, means so much to me. At this time in my life, I have weeded out friends, who were masquerading in friendship. So when I spend time with friends, who appreciate me, and love me as well as my family does. I have a sense of Gods fellowship in this time as well. It is love….

When did you first start writing?

I began to see my writing skills, when I worked in the corporate world. Whenever, I had a need, I would submit a proposal, or I would document my thoughts. I began to see, that I could get results by my writing. The power of the pen, is a gift, that I do not want to use, for anything, but for things that are good, and right, and yes inspired by God Almighty. To speak to someone who is hurting, or broken. To bring light, and hope, in a world, that needs truth. I never want to hide truth. I never want to give place to the enemy, when I can share what God says. So I write. I write what Gods word says, from my King James Bible, and that is my foundation, for anything I write. What does Father God say about it? Ask me, in my blogs, or for my book. I will try to help. The Bible really does have an answer. Yes…. Truth, can be expressed by writing in such a way, that it can leave someone breathless, set free, and in awe, totally inspired.

Are you available to speak publicly to discuss your book?

Yes, I am available to go to your church congregation, ladies group, or business function. I can give my testimony, and share what God has done for me. I can tell you, why my book, “How To Have Faith, My Secret Principles of Faith, is based on a true and living God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.” It was written, from all that I have gone through, and I have learned. These “Secret” Principles I have learned, may not be a secret to some, yet to some they are. I just know, that we all need to grow and learn, and yes I still am learning, but one must choose to grow, and yes tweak your faith. If it is even just one thing I can pass down to someone to learn about faith, and what pleases God this will be worth the investment of the book. And isn’t that what it really is all about? Pleasing God, so we can get answers to prayer. To develop our relationship with God. And yes increase our faith. I know that I know there is a God, a wonderful King, and savior. Jesus Christ, and yes a Holy Spirit that does know us inside and out. And there is so much more. Its not about religion, it is about developing a relationship according to His “principles” to have faith. Go to the link for “my profile” that I have for ordering my book, (paper back) to e-mail me. Or my Facebook page. There you will get updates and posts of inspiration as well. You will need to request my “speakers packet.” And yes please, download the book here at Smashwords.

In Conclusion and Please Note New Price Reduction:

As of today, March 13th, 2014. I have lowered the price from $17.00 to $10.00. Why to ten dollars? Because a tenth is Holy unto the Lord. Leviticus 27:32. I have been mindful of people and their budgets, and the price of a book. Where truly I understand, your not getting a book, to hold in your hands.
You are getting knowledge, insight into God. From your reading device. And because I know the value of these “secret Principles” I know the value, exceeds monetary expectations. But it really is up to you. What your spiritual growth and desire is to pay for such knowledge. To me, all that God has taught me, I cannot put a price tag on. But I am grateful, and I want to help others. But, I have invested a lot of time, and prayer, into this book. And God guided me through each page, that I wrote. I know, that I know, “Secret Principles” that could help someone. To grow, to understand Gods ways.
It is always a choice to grow, or not to. This book will instruct you, but give you true insight, to inspire you in the goodness of God, so your faith can grow. It is for the serious of heart. For the person, longing to know God, and to see beyond spiritually in Christ. And to avoid grieving the Holy Spirit. This is so very important to understanding Gods principles. That to some it is a secret. And they have no idea. They may be deceived, and I talk about what one can do to “Renew The Mind In Christ.”
I encourage you to read the free, first five percent, of pages that I have allowed to get a better understanding of my heart, and yes Gods heart in these “Secret Principles.” Click the bottom link to direct you to the sample. You will want to order it. And if you do not you will never know. Yes, what God could have shown you through this book. And I do not say that to be arrogant, but very humble, knowing the gift God gave me as I wrote this book. I know my Lord, I know Him, and His beautiful Spirit. I know His truth, the Holy King James Bible, I know the author, and He does have standards, that many do not understand the principles to His ways. But I do. I know His heart, in Love. Faith pleases God, and He showed me. I receive it and I share it in His love. Obedient, to Christ.
This book will show someone how important Salvation is. It is a great book to give to an unbeliever, as a gift for someone searching, for answers. You can buy it for someone, who needs faith. And bless them. And you can buy it for yourself, and bless yourself. This book will not return void. Even if it is one thing, that is revealed….I know, it can show you. HOW TO HAVE FAITH ~ MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

What “proof” do you have that any of these secret principles work?

This morning the Lord spoke to my heart, and I could sense, in my heart, that people need proof. I am trying to get people to see, these secret principles that work for me, but faith, is very personal, and sometimes very private. I want people to see who I was before Christ, but also who I am now. And God has made all the difference. I give Him glory. 

The whole book is proof because I know. But if you are looking for “fruit” as proof. My marriage, to my husband is evident. I have true love. I have a marriage, that God has blessed. And there is a reason, why it is blessed. I give instruction, and yes definite reasons why in my book. 

You see, I understand, how it feels to be lonely, broken, and lost. For many years, I thought, I missed the boat, plane, and train to true love. I thought I was doomed to not find true love. I walked alone for many, many years. Yes, I prayed for a mate. And God brought my husband, but what we did and did not do, has brought an everlasting love to our marriage. 

I call it a Faith Secret principle to true love. It is not something, to be honest, I wanted to write about. But God instructed me to write about it. And I did, and this is the proof, I have. I have been married for over 25 years, and very happily. And I do attest this secret, to our success. In fact I know it. This is the proof. 

I want you to grow in who you are, and yes, I do emphasize these principles, but if you are looking for true love, yes, I have the proof in my book, and I share it. It is chapter 26. THE SECRET PRINCIPLE OF MY FAITH TO TRUE LOVE. 

Yes the proof is also who I am in Christ, and how I have changed, but that may not mean anything to you. Because you cannot see beyond your own loneliness, and loss of having someone to share life with. And I understand that. I was there, alone, broken and very lonely. I know the difference. 

If you are lonely, and broken, and you have given up hope, about finding true love, I want to encourage you. Or if you are in a relationship, that needs to be fixed, this remedy can work as well. This can change. And yes, if you follow my instructions in this, that is in my book. I know you will find success and happiness. And yes true love. This proof may be what you need, for your own life to change. Yes it is my secret to true love, and it is proof to me, God has principles. And I obeyed. 

Living happily ever after….

Thanks and blessings…to Smashwords, and to all who have taken time out of their day to read this.

WHEN PASTORS OR PEOPLE UNDERMINE, DISMISS, OR CHANGE THE WORD OF GOD THE KING JAMES BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


I want the body of Christ to be equipped, with the right sword, not a rubber sword.  Read my Book.  HOW TO HAVE FAITH, SO YOU CAN GET SHARP! http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com   SEE LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION

I do not like to point fingers, I do not like to accuse, but when I see Pastors, or people changing the word of God, diminish, and undermine knowing it. I see how it hurts people. I see, how it can cripple someone. Knowing Gods true word the King James Bible, has an anointing, and a power, and when pastors don’t know this, and they water down the word of God, dismiss it, or just ignore, what God says, they are hurting their own souls for eternity.

Folks, we need to know Gods word on our own. Because many times, it does not come from the pulpit.

Today, I saw something, from a very, very prominent pastor, that told people, “you don’t need to know 25 scriptures.”

IF, in any context, to diminish promoting, or encouraging people to know Gods word, this is a disservice to the body of Christ.

No, I won’t say who he is. That is not my job. And I don’t judge him.  He will be judged by God.  Not me.  And we all are judged, by this.  We are all judged, by the words we speak.  We will all have to give an account to God.  And yes, we are judged by the Bible we use.  We do not want to be counted with the liars.  Read yourself, from a King James Bible, Proverbs 30:5-6.

But I do have discernment, between good and evil.  I am very sad, that so many need truth, they need Gods pure word, and people just brush it off, as if it is nothing. They are not in fear of God. They are not taking Gods word to heart. His commandments.

Just a thought here, because it has been established for 400 years, the King James Bible. God knew. He preserved it, but people are not seeing this. We have to know the truth, for the sake of our own souls.

Do you know your own salvation, is at stake? You can be denied access to the Holy city. Your name can be removed from the book of life. And the things, that you want from the Bible, healings, etc. They will not be available to you. Read this scripture and know….Read it very carefully.

FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK, IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. REVELATION 22:18-19.

THE SPIRIT OF CONFUSION AND VOICE FROM YOUR COUNTERFEIT BIBLE ~ IS YOUR BIBLE RADIO STATIC?~ (NOT IF YOUR BIBLE IS A KING JAMES BIBLE)


Counterfeits – counterfeit |ˈkountərˌfit|adjectivemade in exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intention to deceive or defraud : two men were remanded on bail on a charge of passing counterfeit $10 bills. See note at spurious .• pretended; sham : the filmmakers created a counterfeit world using smoke and mirrors.nouna fraudulent imitation of something else; a forgery : he knew the tapes to be counterfeits.

An explanation, as to what this word means.  But, do Christians, or those searching for God, take it to heart?  Only God, can reach the heart.  But how can one hear Gods true voice?  And discern a counterfeit?  To truly, know, what is truth.  I believe, I know God’s voice, and I know His truth, and the difference between His truth, and a counterfeit.

When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto His voice;  For the Lord thy God is a merciful God; He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy Fathers which he sware unto them.  Deuteronomy 4:30-31.

Our world is in tribulation.

We as believers, more so, should be in tune, to the voice of the Lord.  In these times of tribulation.  I believe we are in tribulation.  There is great unrest, in this world we live in.  Yes, as Christians, we should not be confused, or deceived, or unaware, of truth….but many are.  And I hate to say this, but they cannot grow, to be who they should be, because many, are no more ahead, so to speak on the vine with Christ, because they are not sure of Gods true voice.  They have accepted a counterfeit voice.

Christ told us, that His followers, His true followers, would know His voice, and to another, they would not follow.

Verily, verily I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief, and a robber.  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.  To him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them and the sheep follow him, they know his voice.  And a stranger will they not follow but flee from him:  for they know not the voice of strangers.  John 10:1-5.

I propose to you, here, as you see this scripture, that any other Bible version, then the King James Bible, is a strangers voice.  And whoever is using another Bible, is not hearing Gods true voice.  With clarity, and with true discernment.

Shocking huh?  Well thats the way I see it.  I see it this way, because I do not know the “strangers” voice, who sat in an office, and took the King James Bible, and added a word here, changed a word here, deleted a word here, and totally changed the context, to become a “voice” that is now the authority, as the Bible.  I see it this way, because I do know my Lords voice, and it is distinct, and clear, and the confusion is gone.  I see it this way, because before I stopped using the King James Bible only, I would get mixed-signals.  Part truths.  It was like hearing Gods voice with static on the radio.  Sometimes, the message came in, and sometimes it did not.  Sometimes, I heard things, I should not have heard, because there was interference.  The devil was trying to block the word, and He knew I did not have the right Bible.

Only God knows the heart.  How do I know, that whoever was in authority, to change the Bible, from these publishing houses, to revise it, had the same intention, as God did?

Especially knowing, Revelation 22:18-19.  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  

There is a curse in that word.  That in itself, puts the fear of God in me, and tells me not to be a part of that curse, by purposely reading, applying, meditating on, praying, etc.  anything, that takes away or adds from Gods word!!!!!  

Knowing, we are not to add, or take away from Gods word!  Why can’t people see this?  

The King James Bible, has been established for over four hundred years. In 1611, the King James bible, was established.  And it has been in print, for over four hundred years.  Making it the most, read, and authorized Bible for centuries.  So why not trust its authenticity?  Why?  Because people think the revisions, will give them clarity for understanding.  Instead, it defeats the purpose, because only God, can give interpretation.  By His Holy Spirit.  II Peter 1:20.  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  Here the Lord, specifies in His word, that no one can interpret it, but again by His Holy Spirit. You have to see this by His truth.

Who is as the wise man?  and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing?….  V2 I counsel thee to keep the King’s commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.  Be not hasty to go out of his sight:  stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.

Do I want to call other Bible versions evil?  No.  Only because the word of God is part there.  But it reminds me of a radio, or an instrument, that has a tap on it.  Or where it has been tampered with, and the signals are not clear.  But I do not trust, the holiness, to be there.  Or the power of God, to do great things.  Because man’s carnal hands have changed the wording.

There is a lot of history, that gives an explanation, of the many revisions, translations etc.  But…You don’t think, or know, that God knew, that in the future, men, would take His Holy word, and avert it?  Changing it, so they could have copyrights?  Knowing they would claim copy rights.  To change it, at any whim, and yes, for the sake of money.  He wants you to see the root, of why they have changed it.

Why doesn’t the King James Bible have copy rights?  Because it is preserved.   Psalm 12:6-7.  The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.  

I truly believe, with all my being, God is testing those who will seek Him through His true word.  He is looking for those who will teach through His true word, the King James version.  etc.  I believe God is looking for people, who can see through the facade of other Bible versions.  That they put one and one together, and see the discrepancies.

Why would anyone trust, a source, to believe, that another Bible is authentic.  When, Gods word, says over and over again, to beware of those who would change it.

Whose voice are you listening to?  When you read another Bible version?  Gods voice, or the voice, of someone who took the word of God changed it, rearranged it, modified it, deleted some of it, and who are these people?  Whats their agenda?  Are they Christians, scholars, atheists?  hmmmm.

This is something, you need to ask yourself as well?  Whether you believe me or not, but I think it should be addressed.  I think, a person, needs to search God even in prayer, to ask Him.  Is this the Bible you want me to read?

It is God’s voice, you are searching for, when you read your Bible.  It is Gods voice, that you will automatically know, when your Bible is the King James Bible.  Can you tell the difference?  Even here I challenge you to test the Bibles.  Read the King James, for a while.  I know the difference.  Between Christs voice, and a stranger.  And I will not follow a  strangers voice.  This is not just history, or documentation, it is Gods voice.  Gods truth, Gods ways, to show us how to live.

But do you know Gods voice?  Are you listening?  Are you confused?  Only you can answer this.

When you see a prayer, or a commandment, this is God saying, this is what I expect, this is what I want to hear as well.  But how do you know whats missing?  In my studies, I have found countless scriptures missing.  From the other Bible versions.  What if it was a word, you needed? God wants your mind, and heart, and yes voice, to be in tune to His voice, and mind, so you can know what is acceptable in His sight.

But if you are reading, any other Bible, it is part truth.  It is no longer pure.  Yes, I know, the Bible has been transposed, and changed many times, but God has said enough!

I write this, also as a testimony.  And I have to be honest here, because it does attest to my belief, that we as Christians should only use the King James Bible.  For a few years, in my Christian walk, with Christ, I experienced, a time of confusion.  Thoughts would come to me, thoughts of confusion.  Thoughts of doubt, thoughts, of fear, thoughts that sometimes, I have to admit, were unholy.

And I wondered, where did that come from?  Why was I thinking these thoughts?  Should I not, be as a Christian, stronger, able to have a greater peace?  What was it?  I would try to battle these thoughts on my own accord.  But when I discovered two years ago, the discrepancies, from the Bible versions, and I switched Bibles, to read only the King James Bible, my confusion stopped.  My thinking took on the mind of Christ.  It took on, truth, and faith, and hope, and love, from almighty God.

I have no other explanation, but what the Lord showed me even recently.  That people get a spirit of confusion, and this is where the devil blinds them, and they cannot get victories, healings, blessings, etc. because the wording is wrong.  But their minds were blinded:  for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament:  which veil is done away in Christ.  II Corinthians 3:14.  Only Christ, can show you the truth, by His voice, as you go back to read the old testament, along with the new testament, of the King James Bible.

God can only honor His word.  His true word. Jeremiah 1:12 Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten My word to perform it.    

This tells me, GOD will, honor His word.  When I apply it to a prayer, a need, He keeps his promises.  He is not a liar!

But,when people, do not read the King James Bible, they are subject for attack in the mind.  The battle is in the mind.  Remember, we are searching for Gods spirit.  But knowing that carnal hands, have revised Gods word, they have polluted it.  How can anyone victoriously win a battle, with a Bible, that has been touched by carnal hands?  To be carnally minded, is death, the word of God says.  Read Romans 8.  But when Gods word, that two-edged sword, is in place, it combats the enemy.  Thats the only explanation I have.

Well, in sharing with you, I believe, I also have a remedy, and a solution, a tool, for those who are willing to use Gods Holy word, the King James Bible.

I submit to you now, that there is a tool, for those who need, or long for Hebrew, and Greek translations.  There is no Bible out in the market right now, that I have seen, where you can readily go and buy that is the original text, from the Greek and Hebrew translation.  But the King James Bible, does have a tool, that can be used, with it.  A concordance.

Recently, I found STRONG’S EXHAUSTIVE CONCORDANCE OF THE BIBLE.  It has every key word, from the King James Bible for reference.  But what makes this particular concordance, book very appealing is that it has updated, Hebrew, and Greek dictionaries, to find the definitions of each word from the original language, to give more depth, for understanding.

But one cannot use any of the Bible versions, but the King James Bible, as a guideline, due again, to the transposing of the words, and the meanings are totally different.  I highly recommend it, not only for the Greek and Hebrew dictionary.

I recommend it highly,  because we are in a time, where we need to meditate on Gods word, more and more.  We need to sharpen our being, our senses, memorizing, and learning Gods word, it is so needed.

Yes, I am careful, as I conclude here, to try myself, to only search for Gods pure word. To be aware of counterfeits, to be aware, that if I want Gods power, in my mind, and in my life, for all my needs, and to be conscious of what Gods will is, I have to discern, and choose wisely, Gods truth.

I must choose it above mans attempt to create Gods word……

I will not compromise, Gods truth, to please anyone.  But God is who I must please, and to hear His voice clearly, I just know, that I know, the King James Bible is the Bible, I believe God wants us to use.  To know Him, and to know His power, that is available.  I share this truth, I believe, but it is up to you.

I am adamant about this.  It is not up for debate, or argument.  This is what I choose, I am only here to make you think about it, and pray about it.  You choose.  I do not judge you, but I share this, so you can seek God, to find the truth?

Do you really want to use a Bible, that has been altered, that may give you a spirit of confusion, with part truth, and part lies from the revisions, that is a counterfeit, and is not the voice of God?  You can get a new radio.  It is called…THE KING JAMES BIBLE.

I highly recommend it.

Contact me, to give a lecture on this subject, at your local church, congregation, or ladies group.

Just my Thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope….Lord, obedient, to you, I write this.  Guide those, who you want to see this as truth.  The rest of my prayer is private.  For your thoughts, only dear Lord.  In Jesus name, Amen

THE SPIRIT OF OFFENSE, THE ARGUER’S, A LACK OF COURTESY, AND JUDGING OF OTHERS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST~WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP IT? ~BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


Sadly, as I write this title, I do see, a spirit of offense, Christians arguing with one another, and a lack of courtesy, as Christians are judging one another, in the body of Christ.  It is very prominent. When are we going to stop it?  When are we going to see this, so we can grow in Christ?

I pray other Christian leaders do detect it, and try to stop it, by preaching this message, that I write.  For it causes us to be weak.  It causes us to be at odds with one another.  It is accusatory, and the devil loves that.

Revelation 12:10. And I heard a loud voice saying, now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ;  For the accuser of our brethern is cast down which accused them before our God day and night.  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.   

So, I write about it here, to perhaps, bring some light.  To bring some truth.  To bring God into this.  For it is obviously, very close to His heart, after all, we are His children.  He loves us.  Throughout the word of God, We are warned, to be careful, not to be offended.  Great peace have they which love thy law, and nothing shall offend them.  Psalm 119:165.  

Yet, there are Christians, who are actually arguing about Gods word, and truth, and there again, we are called not to argue about Gods word.  Titus 3:9-11 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.  A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; lknowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.  Titus who was a young pastor, in the Bible, was advised, by Paul, the apostle, to be careful in the works of a Christian.  Not only was this advice given, for the pastor, but for the body of Christ.  

So we need to see this, and be objective.  To heed the advice.  To heed the instruction.  So we can grow, this is not just for some, but for all of us who are seeking Gods ways.  Seeking to change, seeking to grow, seeking a better way, so life can have meaning, and one can see the progress, individually.  

In this, that I write, I will express some scriptures from this beautiful book of Titus, from the Bible, that gives us a foundation, to understand.  And in saying that, we do need the word of God.  We as ministers, pastors, and Christians, who are trying to teach others, and yes to all of us, who are growing, we, need the word of God.  We need Gods word, to shed truth, to shed light, to bring conviction, so we can grow.  So we can turn from our sins, so we can see what God says, and truly work out our salvation, in fear and trembling, concerning who God is.

That’s why, it is so important, that one knows what God says, because there are many, who do, preach or speak, in the name of the Lord, and their foundation is not on God’s truth.

Whether it is laziness, to share the word, by reading it, or just someone, who wants to puff themselves up, in pride, to make themselves look good, or its just the devil using someone to distort the truth, one has to be careful.  Religions, rules made by men, with their traditions, have throughout time, distorted, truth.  Gods truth.

Here in Titus again, it brings this to our attention.  Titus 2:9-11 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.  For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, especially they of the circumcision.  Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucres sake.

As I read this last scripture, I cannot help, but see again, how the prosperity message, has gotten so out of hand, that the gospel, is used to gain money, or to draw people to hear the message, but the message has gotten off of God, salvation, souls, and is enticing, people, for the sake of money.  When truly, we all need to be in a place seeking God, for who He is, and not for what He can give us.  It is perverted.  I see it.  Do I want to judge?  No!

But, I will be completely honest, I don’t want that kind of anointing on me, from people who pervert, the gospel, or twist it for the sake of money, or even to make themselves look good.  I do not want to be acquainted with those kind of ministries.  Because what you sit under, in teachings, will become a part of you, if you do not know better.  So I am careful, not to just always jump into a ministry….that could even be cults.  I test the spirits, like we are called to do.  I John 4:1Beloved believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

But as I communicate with many people, here and there, on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, here on my blog etc.  I see Christians getting mad, because you share truth.  Or they reject you.  Recently, a pastor, mind you, was sharing a post, on Facebook.  I suggested, politely, and in fact, supportive of his message, that it was good, but I asked, if he would mind writing the scripture out, because people, do not always have access to their Bibles.  Well, he removed me from his list.  Theres that spirit of offense.

Another lady, same thing, gave a word, and I suggested the same thing.  Because we need the foundation of the word of God.  If we don’t give the word of God.  People think we are flaky, nutty, and they just ignore us.  Anyway, she did not get mad, but she did not acknowledge me, or even thank me.  Courtesy?  Where is it in the body of Christ?

Judging of others, I see so many Christians, talking so harshly, and sharply about other Christian leaders.  Look I am not perfect, nobody is.  But, when we, within the body of Christ, talk about other Christians, to put them down.  To judge them, we are doing a disservice, to the body of Christ.  Baby Christians, or even people who are interested in becoming a Christian see that, and get turned off.  They think gee, they are not nice concerning one another.

Gods word says, touch not my anointed!  I Chronicles 16:22 He suffered no man to do them wrong; yea He reproved kings for their sakes, Saying Touch not mine anointed,and do my prophets no harm.  When you are bad mouthing a person of God, you are harming them, with your words.  When David, and Saul, were at odds with each other, and Saul, wanted to kill David, David, wrote some beautiful passages, that we relate to.  But, what I noticed about David, is that even though Saul hated him.  He recognized the anointing God had placed on him.  He would not come against Saul.  Even though Saul hated him.  When Saul died, he recognized that the messenger, who had brought the news of Sauls death, did not honor him.  So, he had him killed.  In other words, even though Saul hated David, as a man of God, he himself, recognized the anointing, on Saul.  For Saul had been the king, David, honored him.

We do not honor our leaders.  And I am talking political leaders and Christian leaders. For a moment here…though, my emphasis, is on Christians.  But with all of the political controversy going on, I see some mud slinging.  I just see its wrong, to always be in that mode of bad mouthing someone.   Always looking for that reason, to hate, to criticize, it has to do something to us, within us, if we are constantly to berate someone.  Even if they make mistakes, we are not to touch them.  Judging them.  How can we grow, to who Christ, has called us to be?  The word of God is clear, in many places, that we are not to speak badly or harshly.  So even when I see something wrong myself.  You do not ever see me, mention them by name?  No you do not!  Why because what if it was the devil just accusing them?  I do not want to be a part of that.

Now, I know there are bad leaders.  There are people, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, but folks, there has to be love, in our communications.  There has to be courtesy, there has to be a time, where we stop bad mouthing one another, and judging each other, back and forth.

I love Gods word.  I love how, by applying it, it has changed me.  But if I am going to share anything with you, I know, and I have known it from the beginning the word of God has to be the foundation.  To build a point.  Because Gods word makes it credible.

I recently had a lady tell me well thats your truth.  And that I was “narrow” minded.  I thanked her!  Why? because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way.  Matthew 7:14 Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  Which by the way.  Jesus is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  And to be honest there is no other way, to God, to heaven.  To true salvation, to avoid hell.  So, I want to find Gods truth, so I search His Holy word.

We cannot just pick and choose, what we want to from Gods word.  Sadly, her excuse, was concerning the issue of abortion.  And she wanted to justify why abortion is o.k.  Look, Gods word says thou shalt not kill.  Period.  Why do people, want to to twist it, and justify it for their own sake?  I don’t always know.

But, I do know that the devil will use that, to cause havoc in someones life, because they are disobedient.  Giving him a legal right to harass someone.  Consequently, I gave up on communicating with her as well, which is sad.  I did not want to.  But, at every turn, she wanted to argue, or to accuse me, as well.  I admit, I get weary.  But I also put on my armour, and pray, not to get weary, in well doing.

I don’t know how much of a difference I make in my writings, but when I see truth, I cannot help, but share what Gods word says.  As again, a foundation.  But I so want to do it in love.  In Christs love.  For His sacrifice.  I don’t want to take part of the word, and just use it, to twist it, or to puff myself up.  But, I so want lives to turn to God.  Because I know, how Christ can change a life.  How I pray, the body of Christ, would see, would stop, being offended, would use courtesy, and yes stop judging one another, so we can all grow.  I see this as a hindrance to all of us.

What is needed, is Gods truth, and yes love…lots of courtesy, and we need to get our minds off of others, and their faults, and grow.  To stop pointing fingers….And share what Christ did for us.  So others can know the truth, that sets them free.  But, if we get stuck, the body of Christ, will not be affective.  How I pray, God help us.  But, we have to want to be helped.  Myself included.  I cannot write something, and see that I am beyond that.  No, that would be pride….another issue, for another time to write about.

Just my thoughts, in Christ, and love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, help us, help the body of Christ.  Help me, we need love, we need your word, we need to change, to grow, to quit being so offended.  To quit arguing.  To quit being so judgmental.  I just sense something to us, if we keep on that kind of path.  For it is not you.  We need you.  We need your word.  We need love.  Lord help us, in Jesus name.  Amen

WHY I WOULD VOTE AS A CHRISTIAN FOR RICK SANTORUM


I am a Christian.  An American Hispanic woman.  Born and raised in the United States.  A Conservative.  I grew up as a Democrat, but now I am a Republican.

I love this nation.  I love, our freedoms, even more so, because as a Christian, we have rights to serve God, with freedom.  Not all countries have this right.  There is a lot of persecution, for Christians around the world.

But, what I do sense, lately, is that in our society, and even here in the United States, Christianity, is not being defended.  Our freedoms, are challenged.  To pray, in public, to even acknowledge God, in the school systems, etc.  This is being denied.  This is reality.  It is mocked, and many, do not value, the truth of Gods word.  I believe, our country needs, an infusion, of God.  To get us back on track.  Because the truth of the matter, is our country, was founded, by our forefathers, to have religious freedom.

They say, you cannot mix, religion, and politics.  And normally, I do not say anything about peoples political preferences.  Nor will I, probably, after this.  Because I respect peoples rights, to vote for who they want to vote for.  I am not bashing anyone.  Thats not who I am as a Christian.  I want to walk in love, with all people.  As Christ taught us.

But I do disagree with the thought, to a degree, that you cannot mix politics and religion.

Why? Because I see, the moral decay.  I see, the spirit, in the United States, that right now, needs truth.  Because a person, will lead, by their convictions.  By the root, of who they are,  Mr. Santorum, is a Christian.  But, I believe, he would take to heart, that our nation, is based, on the foundation, that in the United States, we ALL have the right, to our religious freedoms.

Do I know, a lot about politics?  No.  I do not.  But I know a lot about Gods word.  I know, that a man, or a woman, is led by the spirit, in which it serves.  Either good or evil.  When I look for any characteristic in any one, I look at their track record.  I look at what they believe, and who they believe in.  I look, at what they stand for.

Rick Santorum, a former United States senator, is someone, who defends life.  And believes, in family values.  His stance, as a senator, who has written, legislature, to protect, unborn babies, probably will win my vote, just for that.  (Against Partial Birth Abortion) He is also someone, who is truly a friend to Israel, and will help and protect this nation.  God loves Israel, our Bible is established, with the knowledge of Israel.  And God will bless those, who bless Israel.  (The Syria Accountability Act)  Documented from Rick Santorum’s official web page.  http://www.ricksantorum.com/why-rick

So these are just some things, I see, that Rick Santorum, believes and stands for, as a Christian, and as someone who could effectively lead this nation.  And I pray, the future president of the United States.

I just know, our nation, needs someone, who puts God first.  In their personal life, and then to guide this nation, to have wisdom.  To lead, effectively.

Someone, who will seek counsel from God.  To guide this nation.  Someone, who understands, the power of prayer.  Someone, who defends those who cannot defend themselves.  Helpless babies.  Someone who believes, in the sanctity of marriage.  Someone, who has strong family values.  I believe I see that, immediately with Mr. Rick Santorum.

The word of God says, in Proverbs 14:34, Righteousness, exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.  

Right now, I just see, there are so many hurting people.  People who need jobs.  People, who need help, but not a handout, but a hand to lift them up.  To, help themselves.  We need, someone, who will bring our jobs back to this country.  Someone, whose values, demands respect.  Yes, I would vote for Rick Santorum, just on these things I know about him.  And I pray, that our country, would go back to the values, it was established upon.  

I pray God bless America, but more then anything, I pray, America blesses God.  We need to get back to the values, that blesses God.  Not only for our nation, but for our personal lives.  For our Salvation.  Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6

I pray, Mr.  Santorum will become our new President, just by these values.  He expresses.  And His track record.  

By the will of God, it will be, if it is meant to be.  You see, God has a plan.  I just encourage you, to vote, for truth.  For liberty, for justice for all.  Even for unborn babies, who want to live……Its not a choice, its a Baby.  

And I want a president, who does understand this.  Because if He honors life, He will honor God.  And if he honors God, He will honor this great nation.  This great country, the land of the free.  The United States.       

Just My Thoughts, with love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope….

Father, I pray for America, I pray, you bring the truth to this nation.  I pray, Rick Santorum would bless you, and America.  And if it be your will, he will become our next President of the United States.  And Lord, whoever it may be, may they lead, with you on their heart.  So America can get back on track.  Help America, vote with the thought, for the helpless, the unborn babies, and for Israel, on their hearts as well.  In Jesus name.  Amen

IS YOUR HEART A HEART OF STONE?


Is your heart, a heart of stone?  Do you see it in a place, where other hearts, you interface with, are as cold as well?  Is it getting indifferent, insensitive?  And you are numb, desensitized.  To life.

You know its not right, and you see that your heart, is not sensitive, to others, and to God, and to the beauty of life.

You have been hurt perhaps, and now, in order to protect yourself, you have chose to harden your heart.  You think it protects you.  You keep your emotions in tact, and you close your thoughts, and heart, to the possibilities, where beauty, and love, and even loyalty, could exist.  Within you.

Yes, your heart is cold, it is angry, it is a heart, that does not believe.  It has shut out God completely.  Your heart is so cold, it at any moment, it could crack, and shatter, into thousands of pieces.  Like this photo.  Broken pieces of rock, within one cold, and hard rock of others.

And you think it is o.k. to be in this environment.  There is safety, being with others, who are of the same mind set, of the same heart.  Hard and cold….Brrr.

Love the essence of who God is, has escaped you, because you deny God.  You deny love.  Or you may have stepped out in love, but got burned.  Your trust was betrayed.  No wonder your heart is a heart of stone.  Cold.  Yet God loves you, and is beckoning to you.  He is calling you. Knocking on the door of your heart.  And says….BEHOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR, AND KNOCK: IF ANY MAN HEARS MY VOICE, AND OPENS THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN TO HIM, AND WILL SUP WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME.  Revelation 3:20.

Have you ever seen the beautiful pictures where Jesus, is knocking on the door?  Have you ever noticed, there is no door knob, on the side of where He is knocking?  The reason, is because the door knob is on your side, you have to open the door.  But you have to see God, and His truth.  By Jesus Christ. For your Salvation.  

This is truth, do you deny Gods word as truth?  If so you are in a very dangerous place…..It can come from being unforgiving, or judgement, or even from jealousy….so many spiritual sins, that can come into place.  If the blood of Jesus, is not pumping your heart….

The thing I think about though, having a stone heart, can come to anyone.  Even someone who has known Christ.  Or  someone, who has denied him.  This hardness, can creep in, slowly, so we really have to be careful, we do not give place to this dilemma, and watch it, and if we can with Gods grace change it.

As I think of rocks, and the biggest, rock, ever, described in the Bible.  I think of the rock, that was put over the tomb of Jesus, after He suffered, for our sins, took each stripe, for our healing, was spit on, mocked, and laughed at, and yet he went on that cross for each one of us.  And gave of his life, for us.  For God loved us so much, he sent Christ, that whoever would believe, would have everlasting life.   John 3:16.

And the devil, laughed, and thought that was the end of that.  Not knowing, God would raise Christ up on the third, day, and he would arise.  Removing that rock, removing that big, boulder, of a stone, out of the way.  So people, like you and me, could see his power.  His love.  So, we could see he took the keys from hell.  From the devil himself, so that if we accept Christ, his love would keep us from that pit of hell itself.  There is a key….

Dear one, I don’t know you, I don’t know why your heart is so hard, and as I write this, I cry for your soul.  I cry, for you to see, how much God loves you.  You see, I understand in part, how one can harden their heart.  From a believer, to a non-believer.  If we are not careful, we can harden our hearts.  We can miss the love, we can miss the joy from knowing God.  From knowing his love.  God beckons to you, and tells you, I can give you a new heart.  Ezekiel 36:26 A NEW HEART ALSO WILL I GIVE YOU, AND A NEW SPIRIT WILL I PUT WITHIN YOU: AND I WILL TAKE AWAY THE STONY HEART OUT OF YOUR FLESH, AND I WILL GIVE YOU AN HEART OF FLESH.

I remember, when God spoke that to me.  Now mind you, I was already a Christian, in fact for many years.  But, my heart was getting stony, it was getting stoic, disillusioned, angry, because my heart desires, were not being fulfilled.  In the sense, I was serving God, in my writing, with my Prayers of Hope, and my gifts and calling.  But, I was not seeing fruit.  Spiritual fruit, or even financial fruit.  I was getting angry, and my heart was getting indifferent.

But one day on a beach, in Florida, and see the link below, for it is a testimony, but I found a cross, that just came to me, on a vacation, from the Atlantic ocean.  And also there, I found a heart, a white heart.  A white rock, shaped, in a heart.  And the Lord spoke to me, and said, the best, he had ever given us, was the cross, and he told me, I will take your “stony” heart away.

Ever since then, my perspective has changed, in the sense, I realize, we can put things, in the place of our relationship with God as a substitute.  It could be people, the actual hearts desire, or idols, money, drugs etc.  My perspective has changed so much, that I know, that I know, God is a loving, kind, merciful God, who will give us many chances, but we have to make the choice.  Love is a choice.

I have learned, love, is the key, to the foundation of who we can be.  Now that I serve God with a different mindset, of who he is, and that even if he does, or does not bless me in this, I will not harden my heart, toward him, or others.

I serve him, and want to please him, being obedient, being with him, because of his love.  With every ounce of my being.  I hold onto that.  I have a heart, of flesh, because I love him.

Being desensitized, hardening our hearts, not caring, can come in different forms, and I just pray, that whoever you are, that you let the love of God, soften your heart, and give you a new heart.  You will never regret it.  I know, I don’t.  For he took my stony heart, my brokenness, my broken dreams, and aspirations, and he has given me love.  And this is also in a different situation, for he brought my dear husband.  And my son.  He has brought me love, in the form of a family.

He has given me his love, to replace, that hardness.  Even the fear.  The greatest stone removal he took from my heart, was when I realized, his love, moved that big stone from his tomb.  For me, and for you.  So we can have hope, we can know, by his promises, we can have life, here better, and life eternal.  For life, and life abundantly…a new heart, to love.  To live, in his love.  But I have to make the connection, I have to make the choice, as it always it is, it is a choice.  To be Love, like He is requires, that I am being obedient to God, loving others, even loving yourself.  And, that comes from God only, for He is love.

It comes seeing, the cross and understanding this great love.  That God loves you and me.

When you see that, the stoic~ness, of your heart, has been taken away, and now what beats is a heart, of his spirit, and his love.  You get encouraged, you get hope, and you see life differently.  Each breath, of life, you realize is a gift from God.  Take it to heart, to soften your heart.  Let Gods love in….Let him build his church in your heart.  The gates of hell will not prevail against it!

Just go to him now, repent, kneel before him, in love.  Let the tears come if they must.  As they should, and let him cleanse you by his holy spirit.  Get into his word, know the covenant you have with him, the conditions by his grace, and the conditions, of being obedient, and your heart will be a heart of flesh, that beats for him.

Just my Thoughts, with his love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor

Father, I praise you almighty God, in my prayer.  I thank you that by the blood of Jesus, I have your heart, a heart of love.  I thank you, that you teach me this.  Not by my ways, but by yours.  I want to be ever so careful, not to hurt your heart, by being disobedient, or letting things into my heart, that distort, your love, or truth.  So, I do take to heart your word, and I do take to heart to pray, and to forgive….to be careful, even with my words.  Praying, they are your words.  Lord, I just want to thank you for teaching me love.  And thank you for the sacrifice of Christ, and by his blood, the covenant, is established.  Lord, as you hid Moses, in the cleft of that rock, because your glory was so strong, I also want to be hid so, I can dwell in that secret place with you.  So, I can be in your presence.  In your presence is fullness of Joy….No good thing, will you withhold from those who love you.  I am so glad, my foundation, and all that I am is because your heart of love, is love.  My focus father is on you.  I will not look to the past, in hurts, or problems even now.  I will not get distracted, by the ways of the world, or by others.  And the way, they think or do not think.  I will just look to you.  And your love.  In Jesus name.  Amen
