In Conclusion and Please Note New Price Reduction:
What “proof” do you have that any of these secret principles work?
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….

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.
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.

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,
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

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? 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,
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
