WHEN YOU DON’T AGREE WITH CHRISTIAN LEADERS IN POLITICS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2030

Please look at that scripture in the above photo.  Look very closely.

When I was growing up, I was warned.  In matters of decorum, you don’t talk about politics, and you don’t talk about religion.

Well I threw that adage out the window a long time ago.  Because whether people want to agree or not, we need to see whats going on in our country.  And we need to talk about it.  With each other.

And the strange thing, is that politics are affected by the lack of wisdom, from someone, who does not have fear of God, in such matters.  I am not wincing words here.  You do not want to be deceived.  

I have seen enough in this election, to make me cringe, that Christian leaders who should have wisdom, and understanding of Gods ways, and truth are not supporting it.  They are not vocal about it.  

And in fact, are doing and saying things, that are the opposite of Gods truth, and are greatly influencing others.  They think because they have the forum, and the power, they can say, what they want, and not have any consequences, concerning that.  But they forget there is a judgment day for all of us.

Well that kind of endorsing, is wrong thinking on any Christians part.  Because we do all have a responsibility to know Gods truth, to know what God says in a matter, and not to align ourselves with someone, who should know better.  Or someone who purposely, disregards God, and His truth.

Politics are affected by these matters.  Now I don’t like using the word religion, because it always gives a connotation about a group, or a particular ideology.  But what I do refer it to, is to my relationship with Christ, that I have from my King James Bible, and prayer.  And yes, I look at the fruit of someone in politics.  Something Mr. Cruz, early in his campaign told us to look at.  That was wisdom.  Without, trying to enforce anything on anybody.

Bully tactics, are something, we should look at.  And avoid. Because well, it goes totally against who we are as Christians.  Christ, has never called us to enforce something on someone. He does not even take His word, and hit us on the head with it.  He gives us a choice.  Free will.  But if we do not choose Him, well we choose wrong.

Many of you may be like me, where you are disappointed, in who some of our Christian leaders are now a days…

You think they should not support or endorse someone who has shown time, and time again, fruit that is not Christ like.  To say the least.

Well, its time for you to stand up, where you are, with what you got.  Your King James Bible, which is truth, and not corrupted, and stand and make a stand for the Kingdom of God, and yes for your country.

I believe prayer, is something, we need to begin doing more of.  Myself included.  And to pray repentant.  Because more then ever, we are seeing the fruit of this in our country.  The sins, that we have allowed, over, and over again.  Including abortion.  But we do need to pray.  For Gods wisdom for our leaders, including those Christian leaders who let us down.  And we need to pray, for guidance, from God and yes forgiveness.

But, concerning Christian leaders who have displayed a parting of Gods truth.  I briefly want to say, when I feel that way, I am careful not to pray with them, or agree with them. You see, there is an anointing, that flows from the top and makes a covenant with someone in matters. This is why I would choose to have a Godly president, over someone who does not.

So when I see someone who is in the body of Christ choose someone, I don’t agree with, well that red alert or red flag is revealed. Its not that I don’t walk in love. Its not that I would even want to start an argument. Its a matter of choosing sides.

Gods side, and everything He says. Or what the enemy might choose.

You see, loyalty is very important to God.  Being right in His sight.  Its far more better then voting, against your conscience.

When we choose to align ourselves, even in prayer with someone, we do not agree with, what does that say to God?

Now we must, especially in these times, be careful, who we align ourselves with. We must ask God for wisdom.

I just think its wise, for myself anyway, not to align myself with someone, who has displayed in conversation or support, to someone who has gone against everything Christ has taught us. Either we obey God, or we don’t. Be careful who you pray with, and agree with.

Since, I cannot be a hypocrite, strange I got tested in this matter.  And what I have learned, even in this, is pray, people are not deceived.  Pray people get the blinders off of their eyes.  Because the enemy will use people, even people, who have a form of light, and they are true darkness.  Remember the enemy was light.  He can transform himself.  Pray you are not deceived.  Pray for those who are.  

Be careful to be prayerful in matters, more then ever for our country.  I just feel the Lord prompting me more to work on my own love walk.  To avoid strife.  To take on Christ more in my communications, and to avoid arguments, that are just meant to be a snare, to my soul.

After hearing another Christian leader give an endorsement, this is my thought:

Plz don’t tell me you cannot judge someone’s heart. After they have spoken evil! Did we forget what Christ taught us? Are we going to let the blind lead us?

I FOLLOW CHRIST NOT MAN!

“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Matthew 15:14 KJV

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Luke 6:45 KJV

In conclusion:  I just feel led to also remind you to be in prayer for our country more so. To remind you, that you have the ability to be a vessel for the Lord.  To work on our love walk. To avoid the spirit of strife that comes from some who really have no sense of truth. Pray for people, but don’t strike up a friendship with, someone who really is friends with strife. Someone, who really just wants to argue. That kind of self confidence, is evil.  

Be careful friends, blessings, and love in Christ.  May God be glorified, and I believe in miracles.  For the United States of America. 

Elena Ramirez

MAKE NO FRIENDSHIP WITH AN ANGRY MAN; AND WITH A FURIOUS MAN THOU SHALT NOT GO: LEST THOU LEARN HIS WAYS, AND GET A SNARE TO THY SOUL. BE NOT THOU ONE OF THEM THAT STRIKE HANDS, OR OF THEM THAT ARE SURETIES FOR DEBTS. PROVERBS 22:24:26. KJV.

I loved this thought, that came from dear Mr. Cruz.  Yes, I admire this man greatly.  He is a man of great integrity, conviction, and stands for that which is right.  I admire him, because he stands his ground.  He is not a people pleaser.  He is I believe a man who wants to please God.  He knows who he is by his integrity.  This is why I am sad, he is not our nominee.  

But that thought of his is the talk of today.  And it causes us all to think.  So why? What does that mean, to vote your conscience?

I love getting to the root of things.  Thats always been my nature, to understand.  Why people, say what they do?  What is the foundation of something said.  The root, determines far more then what may be implied in anything.  Because it reveals the very soul of someone.  Don’t scratch the surface, get to the root of it!  Why waste your time, pondering?  Go to the top, the wisdom that God gives.  Does it come from God or satan?  You can know if you truly seek God.  If you read holy word.  

Christ told us, that we would be known by the words we speak.  We would be judged by those same words.  And out of the abundance of the heart, we do speak.  Scripture (paraphrasing) tells us we have power of life and death in our tongues, and we eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21. That last scripture is enough to give pause to consider what we do say.  

I think Mr. Cruz thought about what he should say.  He knew he had if anything to prove to himself, and God, he had a responsibility as a leader to tell us how to vote.  By the conscience.

The conscience.  The sense, these are principles, principles God has given us to establish to know the difference.  To guide us, to give us wisdom.  To give discernment between good and evil.

So to vote your conscience.  Hmmm.  Lets get to the root of that.  Without actually endorsing anyone, without saying anything further about someones character, or the lack of it.  

To get to the root of it, you need to look at the fruit.  To look at the soul of someone.  You have to see, what someones words are based on.  Is it truth?  Or is it a lie?  How did they get to the foundation they have?  Is it based on God, or is it on satan?  Is it love or is it hate?  Is it good, or is it evil?

You see, thats just the way it is going to be.  Its not in-between, or at a half way mark. With God, its choose this day, whom you will serve.  God does not play games with us.  He tells us to choose whom we will serve.

I CALL HEAVEN AND EARTH TO RECORD THIS DAY AGAINST YOU, THAT I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING, THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE, THAT BOTH THOU AND THY SEED MAY LIVE.  DEUTERONOMY 30:19 KJV.  

And whether you want to choose or not, is really irrelevant, because by not choosing, you can choose evil.  By not standing up for good, by being lukewarm, so to speak, God will spit you out.  See Christ’s last words to us, in Revelation 3. Of a KJV. Because even in these scriptures he is reminding us, yes, salvation could be at stake by not repenting. He tells us let no man take your crown!

Repentance, is always the key to clearing the slate with God.  Always, don’t ever forget that!  It will clear your conscience.  It will clear your soul, it will make you right with God.  Repentance is admitting you have sinned, that you have made mistakes, by not basing your “conscience” your soul on Christ.  It is the sweetest cleansing, you ever can receive, because it will clear the slate, and clean your robes.

See, God is giving us all a chance on this earth to choose.  And so you have to know what your “conscience” is based on.  You have to know what source, as the foundation, does your thoughts come from to vote.

Is it good, is it truth, is it love, is it pure, and holy, submitting totally to God?  In obedience, in fear of God.  Yes, fear, people don’t like that word, but see, if you fear God, you choose wisely.  So your conscience, does not fear anybody else, but God Himself, to prove to Him, your own alliance.  To please God. 

The conscience.  That little voice, that gut instinct, that sense you might call common sense, is always based on good or evil.  God or the devil.  And to know that, is to learn to fine tune it.  You can always trust it, if its based on God. 

It tells you what is right, it tells you what is wrong.  But if the foundation of it, is not based on God totally, well it will be wrong.  But the principle is in its place.  If you have not made Christ Lord, and savior, you will be ruled by the principle, that comes from the devil.  Theres no in-between here again.

Thats why I am so careful with the Bible I choose.  I choose the King James. To choose something, that has not been corrupted, or compromised, because I truly want to be on the same page with God.  He does not change, we do.  So my thoughts, will reflect the mind of Christ.  According to His word.  Not my thoughts, not satans thoughts.  But God almighty.

But it is a choice.  So, to vote your conscience, is a choice.  This is America.  Beautiful America, the land of the free.  But how long will that be, if we do not choose Gods ways?  We may very well learn.  This is who we are as a nation.  Free. We have freedom, our whole nation is on the foundation of freedom, but in God we trust.  

Some of us trust in God anyway.

So only you can answer the question as to where your “conscience” is based on.  Only you, can determine, to know if you are right are wrong, but remember, you will be judged by what you choose.

We will all stand before God.  For the choices we make, including how we vote.  It is recorded in the book of life.  But ask yourself, is your name in the Lambs book of life?  That book, that has no stain on it.  Cleansed by the sacrifice of Christ.  

Without telling you who to vote for, to vote your conscience, means you are voting because you have freedom.  But remember, that freedom, in our nation, will produce, fruit.  It will produce a consequence.  Either for good or evil.  God or satan.

So be careful how you vote.  Be careful what you base it on.  Be careful, that you see the root of someones character, to know, is it good, is it evil?

I think we have seen enough to know.  At this point.  But if you do not know, ask God.  Come to His throne humble.  Repentant.  Seeking truth.  He will show you.  He is awesome when it comes to things like that, so He deserves glory and honor and praise as I even write this.  I know.  There is none like God, and sometimes, you wonder.  But He is on the throne.  No matter who is President.  

The rest is up to you, and yes God, for it is always in His hands.  Who is your choice to vote for?  It may mean you don’t vote.  And thats another topic, between good and evil, and evil is still evil.  And good is still good.  Thanks be to God. 

Remember God sees your vote.  What is your conscience based on?  As you vote?  Or do not vote?  Your an American, know the difference! 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

Sometimes, you just have to stop in your tracks, and look, and see where you are, and see what got you to where you are.  This could be in the spirit, and yes even in retrospect, of decisions, and choices, things that motivated you, and see the result of where you are.  I think it is healthy to do that, now and then.  To judge yourself.

I think we can trust our instincts sometimes so well, that we can mislead ourselves.  We think we know what we are doing as right.  We think we can do this, and that with “confidence” and we can go down a wrong road.  Confidence is a wonderful thing, but to be honest, as I reflect and judge myself, I see my confidence was misguided, very much so, especially in my youth.

It depends on what you are confident in.  I am confident in God.  Not myself.  You see, and I guess, I am writing this, in reflection to where I am right now. But, I think I missed it. Because I was confident. I think, I missed, the boat, the plane, and the train, and had to walk out this journey, with God.  I did not get an open door, a vote of confidence, or guidance.  And I know I fell through the cracks.  I know it.

And because I found God and He NOW walks with me, I know He can change a life.   I made so many mistakes being confident.  That at one time, sadly, I denied God.  I believe I reaped that.

We do reap what we sow.  And I did.  Now I know God can change a life, He can change a disposition, a soul, and some things one can never change about them.   Because you are too far down the road now.  But you can start where you are, and walk with God and He might give you a different perspective.  But to trust yourself, that can be wrong.

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

Today, I don’t know, I feel like everything I have tried to do on my own has failed.  I have no confidence in that any longer.  Unless God builds the house, we labor in vain.  That is scriptural.  And sometimes, I get discouraged, when I share truth, and it is dismissed.

Today, somebody, in the body of Christ, who could be very influential in this truth I know, about the King James bible dismissed me.  They dismissed me, nicely but dismissed me nonetheless.  It has happened quite often, that I have seen it, more then I care to elaborate.

And just the reality of that, when you know truth, can make someone sad, and wound them.  Rejection has never been something I look forward to.  It has happened in my life a lot.  But, maybe because of that, I can shake the dust off.  I can go on, and try and obey God.  Even if someone does not believe what I tell them.  My armor has gotten thicker.  The armor of God can quench the fiery darts of the enemy, even rejection.

You see, when I speak truth, it is because I have judged myself.  I see the error of my ways.  I see that Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  I see, my life, would not mean anything, unless I stood on truth, His truth, my King James bible.   For I see the discrepancies that other bibles bring.  So when I tell someone truth, to not use another bible version, or to tell them they are corrupt, and I see them using these lies from the devil.

Its not that I am judging them.  But I have judged myself to see, even in a time frame, of when I did not search for God, I made mistakes.  And when I searched for Him, and used corrupted Bibles, I sensed a time of confusion.  I have judged myself.  I want to spare someone confusion.  I want them to hear Gods voice clearly.  I want them to avoid some or all of the sorrow I have reaped, because I was so confident in myself.

Some people think there is no God.  But they are confident in themselves, and they will reap what they sow.  When someone believes in God, but does not obey Him. when they use corrupted bibles, they reap the confusion.  But not only that the enemy is successful in deceiving them.

When I tell them and they are so confident the word that they use is of God.  But it is not.  Because God does not lie.  All I can do is shake my head, because those that have changed Gods word, have disobeyed God.  I warn them to compare themselves to the different versions.  And the King James as the lump. To pray, to take the King James word literally.  This is so very important, and I know I need to practice more myself, what I preach.  But prayer, consistent prayer, will bring a sense of Gods voice, to add to your confidence.  Pray till you hear from God.

I pray for people to know truth, but all I can do is try.  The rest is up to God.  So I will pray more….

Do you judge yourself now and then?  I hope so, but ask God by His spirit, and by His holy word, to reveal the truth.  That word is the King James Bible.

FOR IF WE WOULD JUDGE OURSELVES, WE SHOULD NOT BE JUDGED.  I CORINTHIANS 11:31.  

Blessings, in Christ,

Sometimes, you have to look and see what makes a good friend.  And sometimes, you have to understand, good friends, need to be loved and appreciated.  Christ does that for me, as my greatest friend.

I know His sacrifice on the cross, and the beatings He took for me, and to pay the penalty of my sins, reminds me, how great a friend He is.

So how can I show Christ, my love, and that I appreciate, His great sacrifice?

It is the Christmas season right now.  And I cannot explain it, but I feel something in the spiritual realm even in my own growth, and understanding, in gratitude, that I just want to stop, and concentrate on Christ more this season.

I get sad, because you know we all like nice things, but the world, people, even other Christians, seem to forget about what this season is all about.  The reason for the season.  And its Jesus!

Sometimes, growth, circumstances, poverty, lack, and yes even an abundance, can make you stop and see, and say.  Is this what it really is all about?

I mean, we can really get caught up in the ways of the world.  We can get caught up, in material things.  The lack of, or the abundance.  Where is the balance?

Right now, I just want to be a good friend to Christ.  More then ever.  I am a Christian, who has been a Christian for a few years now.  And when I made the decision, to give it my all to Christ, I have not turned back.  Yet, daily, I have to work on my relationship with Him.

So, as I ponder on this time of season, and I deal with issues of life, in my own personal life, my families, and I see the world, and I see issues, politically as well, and I see people, and how they feel.  Well, I can get my eyes off of Christ.

And you know, I am just trying to sort it out, even as I write, because life is important.  What you do with your life is important.  How you look at life, and how you deal with situations.  I am not perfect far from it.  But being the old girl that I am now…..I can easily recall, how just searching for God, through Christ, has made a difference for me.  There are so many things though, that I have not accomplished, or done, or been able to do, that can make me stumble.  I don’t want to stumble.

So, I am just sorting my feelings out here, and just knowing how much I need to seek God more so.  So many have the outlook, that you just receive your salvation, and thats it.  You are safe.  But, I don’t see it like that.  I take the scriptures to heart, when it says, work out your salvation with trembling and fear.  I take to heart, that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.  I take to heart….

That I have my part in it.  I have to discipline myself sometimes, I have to bring it all to the obedience of Christ.

And maybe you can relate to this, maybe not.  But I actually get jealous, and angry for God, when people deny Him.  When they say terrible things about God, when they mock Him.  When they ignore Him……So I take this to heart….

I have to….right now I have to.  I am not sure what I am feeling.  Maybe it is sorrow, we did have a death in our family.  Maybe it is a sense, that nothing is forever, unless it is with God.  I am sad, this family member was so young.  Why did it have to happen?

But even through this I know the answer is to press into God more! Not less, I can never pull back in who I am in Christ.  Even if I am sad.  Even if I cannot control my own opportunities.  I know God can.  So, I just want to press into God more.

A friend asked, recently, when do you feel more alive? (sweet Narita, maybe she will read this)  And my answer was:  In all honesty, when I am close to God!  And that is the ultimate truth for me, when I am.  He is the way, the truth and the life.  I know that!  And I know what life was like without Him.  That was not life.  That was being like the walking dead.  So no, I will not pull back, no matter what I am feeling.  Because He fills my cup with life, in Him, as I live move, and have my being.

I don’t know all the answers.  And I do not pretend to know.  But I just sense right now, how precious life is, and in Christ.  I don’t know you, or your situation.  I don’t know what you are feeling, or going through.  But, I do know there is a God.  I know it with all my being.  More so, then I did yesterday.  You see, everyday I have to search for God.  And every day, I find Him, when I search.

Today is no different.  Just that I find Him, in different ways.

His love, compels me to search.  And I don’t want to be legalistic.  But, I know there are ways, to reach Him, according to His excellence.  I suppose this is one other reason why I am adamant about using only a King James bible.  Purity, preservation, something about going back to the old way of doing something, opposed to modern techniques, or technology.  Seeking God.  By prayer, the greatest way of communicating to a King.  My friend, my Lord, my savior.

Jesus, is my greatest friend.  And I just have a sense, more then ever, how precious His friendship is to me.  But I have my part…..

And I guess, this is just a little rant of my own, to sort it all out, but I think of who God is, and His patience.  I also see, what His word says, His warnings.  His anger, as well, and I see how history even in the word of God, tells us, who God is, and what He expects.  The fear of God is healthy for a soul.

I don’t know, I just want to grow, but I want to do it Gods way.  And what good is life, if we don’t grow, in who the creator intended us to be?  Its life, lets live it for His glory.  Or what counts?  I just want to make a difference.  In my own life, and yes in others.  But we have to see, we have to know, we have to try…..

TO HIM WHO ALONE DOETH GREAT WONDERS: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER.  Psalm 137:4

Just a thought today, Elena Ramirez  Merry Christmas….

God is not a figment of my imagination, or some thing to consider as one would when you go shopping for spiritual inspiration.  No my God is so much more, not only is He the creator of heaven and earth, and has the ability to spare our souls from hell.  He can make a way, when there was no way. He can heal us spiritually and physically….

He is so underestimated, in our world.  And is misunderstood, and rejected.  But His love is so great, and we can just look at Jesus the son of God, to get a mere glimpse of who He is.  But people have to look, and we have to tell others….

Look at our world folks, it needs God more then ever.  With all that is going on in the world, they call persecuted Christians, “religious minorities.”  Truth is not spoken any more, and it is very disconcerting.  For we see how the world is changing, and no one stops it, no one stands for that which is right.  This really bothers me being a truth seeker.  

Even as I look at other Christians, they are silent.  They are quiet.  Sure some speak truth about other things, but yet, they do not stand up for God, and what God can do in a life.  Nor do they defend, the defenseless, or stand up against evil.  The lines are fuzzy, because many do not embrace the truth of God, and His word.  Folks we are in end times.  We are seeing prophecy being fulfilled even right now, before our eyes, and in the news.  Truth, is so vague in the body of Christ.   

And yet, when someone in authority could make a difference, we see silence.   No one is taking a stand, to speak truth.  I long to.  But who am I?  All I know, is that if given the chance, I would speak to others, I would proclaim Christ more so.  People need hope.  They need truth, not sugar coated lies.  I am weary, in not making progress, but I still know God can!  I know it, I know that I know God is able.  No God is not a figment of my imagination.   

All we can do is pray, but yet, I know we can do more.  We have to.  

His will be done.  I so pray, that my heart, my soul, my being, gives Him glory.  I want to inspire God, and I am so sympathetic to know, He loves us all.  But sadly, many reject Him.  I don’t want that recorded on the records of heaven, but that I love Him, and thank Him…..

For every thing, from the small to the big.  I am grateful.  I love the Lord, and pray just to please Him.  I suppose I am venting today.  I suppose, I am just trying to toot my horn, but its for His glory, not mine.  

Blessings, and love, just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

The spirit of anger.  It can be caught like a cold, and you may not even know you have it.  It can erupt at any time, and cause total devastation, and not only hurt you, but hurt others.

Its like a volcano, brewing, steaming, and if not watched, nipped, and put to rest, it can destroy lives.  

I write about it, because you know sometimes, we don’t really know what we are capable of, when angry.  I write about it, because I have seen it hurt myself, and others, and I lived in a household as I grew up, where anger was evident now and then.  

This post is not to criticize anyone, or make anyone feel bad, but to be honest, I just sense how the enemy of God, does use anger, and provokes people to do things, they would never want to do, or to have done to them.  Yet, many do.

They give into anger.  And I want to talk about it, as a spirit, because I truly believe there are many other different spirits, that we can be mindful of, and this particular one, is meant to destroy.  

We always have to know where things come froem, to get to the root of something.  And the enemy of God, the devil, is known to kill, steal, and destroy.  He wants to steal the destiny God has for you, and destroy that purpose, and anger can be used to do that.  Our jails are filled with angry people.  

But if one can know in advance, recognize it, as a spirit, and take God at His word, I believe, they can stop that anger, they can curve it, into energy, as a spirit, to do good things.  

Now mind you, righteous indignation, that may be considered anger, can benefit some, and can bring a purpose for a wrong doing.  But you have to see, and know what God says about everything, and we are warned to be careful not to be angry.

You are the one who has to rule this spirit.  

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.  Proverbs 16:32.  KJV. 

Have you ever gotten angry, at someone right before bedtime, and not resolved a situation?  We are told, to not let the sun set on our anger.  This scripture tells us that, and I also believe it affects our emotional, and physical health.  

It is best if we can make peace with whoever has angered us, and not to give into that anger, in our time of rest.  

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.  Ephesians 4:26 KJV.

We are told not to make friends with angry people.  Look, we all have moments where we want to vent, and its good to have a friend who understands.  But something about anger, it is contagious, and if you value your peace of mind, be aware of angry people, and steer away from them.  They can influence you, and also get you in trouble.  

Sometimes, though its hard, you don’t know this that it affects you, but you see the fruit, and some people need to know especially that anger is not a fruit of the spirit.  Which I recommend you look up yourself.  In a good King James bible.  As Christians we are to follow this sense of instruction, in the fruit of the spirit, for our own spirits to bear fruit in Christ.    

But here in this scripture is the warning:

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go.  Proverbs 22:24.  

Ever noticed that an angry person, instigates, or tries to cause problems as well?

An angry man stirreth up strife, and a curious man aboundeth in transgression.  Proverbs 29:22.

As Christians we are called to have the spirit of Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to love one another, and to have self-control.  

Yes, even Christ got angry, and I admire, His anger when He overthrew the tables at the temple.  For He saw, how this place was used to make money, and not for prayer.  And yes, one could say it was extreme.  But no one got hurt, and no one, was a target of His anger.  

Even when He was in the garden and the disciple cut the ear off of the soldier, He used His healing authority, and power to restore the soldiers ear.  He could have had angels at His calling, He could have done angry things, in that moment, but our God is so much greater then that.  So we are called to have self-control.  We are called to love, we are called, to not give into anger.    

The following scripture, also talks about how we are to have self-control:

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God, not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.  Titus 1:7.  

I want to encourage you, perhaps, you have just come across this post, by curiosity, or it is a problem, God can turn it around.  

He can give you peace, in situations, that normally would bring anger out in you.  But you have to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  If you have not given Christ your heart, now would be a great time, to make it right with Christ.  Give Him your anger, and repent, give your heart to Him.  Tell Him, to change your heart.    

You have to let His spirit, rule your heart, you have to repent.  You have to be aware of this spirit, and make the attempt to make it right.  It can be done, I know.  Behaviors, that can bring curses, can be changed by Christ.  I understand this spirit of anger, but I myself had to bring it to Christ, to change me and He has.    

I write about it in my book.  Feel free to check out the link, in the photo above and I pray, God bless you, if you have anger.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7. 

Blessings, and love in Christ,   Elena Ramirez
