SARCASM MOCKERY ARE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PHARISEE CHRISTIAN BEWARE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2I suppose I am writing this, because I detect this. Its as if it is a red flag to me. A warning sign, to be careful.  I sense it, when I see sarcasm, and mockery, for they can turn even the best intending Christian, into a Pharisee.

Do you remember the Pharisees, in relation to Jesus?

They upheld the law, but their religion, rules regulations, traditions made by them, could not accept Christ in His love, and in His truth. He was rejected. So much so, it was they who called him to be crucified. Yet it was the plan of God.

What you saw in them was sarcasm. Mockery, characteristics, religious tendencies, that hit people on the head, shot others with arrows, that identified, they were Pharisees.

So, I want to talk to my fellow Christian brothers and sisters. Not to the unsaved, for they do not have the spirit of Christ. But to those who have accepted Christ as their Lord and savior. For those who have come to the throne of grace, who have repented. Who have seen their own sins, who have humbled themselves, in the sight of almighty God. You have bowed before the cross, and you have accepted Christ as your Lord and savior. You realize He died for your sins.

I want to talk to you. To please beware. Of sarcasm, of mockery, of hidden disdain, that can poison your own spirit. Of strife, of lying. We are called to put off the old man. We have died with Christ, and live with Christ. So as we live, move, and have our being, our foundation is to be in love. His love.

In truth.

And sarcasm, mockery, has no place, for it then becomes idolatry, in a sense. For you are turning away from what Christ has called us to do, to walk in love, and you are embracing an idol, that is not Christ. This can pollute and taint your spirit. Beware….

I have seen religion all my life. I have seen people who say the are Christians, but they do as the world. They may for a time, walk in love, but then they turn, and they change, and they let their sarcasm, and spirits become polluted, with the Pharisee spirit.

To be honest, that scares me. And I know, I have come very close to it myself. But repentance my friend, is what has saved me. To identify it. To be aware of it. To walk away from it.

And yes, even to walk away from some I have loved. I see it symbolically. We are all marching in an army. As soldiers of the Lord, but if you sense your brother or sister, is throwing arrows, rocks, behind your back, as you march, aiming at you in sarcasm, you cannot trust that brother or sister in Christ.

Yes, we are called to forgive. But when I sense there is no true accountability, no repentance, I cannot trust a brother or a sister, who displays these fruits of the spirit, that are not of love. But come from a dark side, a side, that comes from the enemy himself.

We are to test and try each other, and to be a better example. I pray, you would just be aware of this. That you would see it yourself. Because it can come to any of us, so easily, if we are not walking in our Lords love, and wisdom. And making that conscience effort to depart from such things.

It tried to follow Christ, even to the cross. But His silence, even on the cross, spoke volumes to me. In Mark 15 of the KJV, it talks about how the Pharisees, the Romans, and the people who crucified, Christ, mocked, laughed, and how he silently refused the myrrh, that was given to him to drink. Water that was polluted. He rejected that. He was silent. But only in prayer to the father. Asking God, why have you forsaken me. Scripture in Mark 15:29, says

AND THEY THAT PASSED BY RAILED ON HIM, WAGGING THEIR HEADS, AND SAYING AH, THOU THAT DESTROYEST THE TEMPLE, AND BUILDEST IT IN THREE DAYS. SAVE THYSELF, AND COME DOWN FROM THE CROSS.

Are you mocking someone, who is holding up the cross, who is trying to serve the Lord?

Look I understand we do not all agree, we do not have the same callings. And yes, we may even debate, or argue.  But should we?  

For sarcasm is ugly.  And we must have wisdom to understand, we are all different.  Remember, get that check in your spirit, thats just it we are all different. We are all on the vine, with Christ in different stages. What I know, you may not know. What you know, I may not know. But we should never have a spirit of “I am better then you.” Or a spirit that tries to puff itself up.

We must always have love, front and center, even if we do not always have spiritual understanding, of some things. Or matters that are KJV biblical. But if you let sarcasm, be your focus, you will lose something very precious and great in this matter.

You will truly lose the understanding of what Christ did for you on that cross. Please, never take that for granted. No matter what you do.

Do not take it for granted. I hope you see this, and you will understand, you are only hurting yourself. And you may be hurting someone else, who could learn from you, but instead, they are seeing the Pharisee spirit.

Feel free to share this with other brothers and sisters in Christ, who you may need to minister to.  But please do it in love.  Not sarcasm.  

You see, we all sin, we all come short of our Lords glory.  All of us. 

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

Don’t undermine someones pain or sorrow.  I tell myself this as well, because I have learned to put on my own armor, when I see, or sense pain or sorrow in myself, and others.

I have to keep my armor on.  Or I would fall apart.  I would not be effective for the Kingdom of God.  I cannot walk in my way, but the way of Christ.  So no song of self-righteousness, will make me stronger.  But the righteousness of Christ.  Not my self-righteousness.

So when I see people with no compassion.  No understanding, no comprehension of someones pain.  Including their own.  I wonder why they react the way they do.  

No one, understands our own pain, more then Christ, since He suffered for our sins.  For He was compassionate, He was love, He was truth, He was a Physician, He was so much more, that we have to use as an example.  

But we have to go to Christ.  I know I do….and I do.  

When I sense silence, or no offering of compassion, to those that are hurting.  Or if I see someone being mean spirited, I wonder why is there no sense of compassion?

You see, we never know, why people are the way they are.  What contributed to their coldness, or their passiveness, or even their own mean spirit.  So many times, you see people who are rude, or mean, but they don’t know how to give it to Christ.  In fact, many that are that way, deny God.  So when people deny the only true source for healing, they use others as a scapegoat for their pain.  

They get self-centered, selfish, and prideful.  And you have to look real close, or you will not have compassion for that miserable soul.  

I don’t often share my own pain, or sorrow, because I have learned to give it to God.  I have found people don’t always know how to react to others pain.  Or how to console.

Yet, there are things that it just does not seem as if they will heal in my own life, until I stand before God.  So I sometimes hide my pain, or saddness.  

And all I know, is that, I cannot lose my sense of who God is, amidst the pain I sometimes feel, and let that control me.  I cannot.

But it does make me look at people through eyes, that have hurt, to give someone compassion.  Sweet kind, and beautiful compassion.

Compassion, that is love.  That Christ told us to give to one another.  Even our enemies.  How wise our Lord is.  How everything connects, when we use love.  How it solves problems, heals wounds, and brings peace.  It is a commandment.

So as I write about this, please think about how you deal with people.  Maybe you have reason to be angry with someone.  Maybe someone has hurt you deeply.  Maybe, though, if you tried to understand, what molded them to be that way, you can release your own forgiveness, with compassion, to not react with an eye for an eye to them.  Maybe you can stop someone from doing mean, or evil, because you are compassionate.  

God only knows why people are the way they are.  But I have learned, on my own.  I don’t have to embrace that kind of spirit, to grow.  To grow in Christ means, I have love, for others, and myself, to not get caught up in things.  

I just pray, for those who are grieving, angry, or hurt.  Maybe you will have this pain, or sorrow, that I understand, that does not seem to go away.  But I pray, you are always comforted with love.

I never want to undermine your pain.  But don’t undermine my pain either.  

And why I search for God so much.  Unless you have walked in my shoes, or I in yours, all we can do is comfort each other.   But to be mean, and to devalue your pain, or mine, is not productive.  What produces fruit in our lives.  Is love….with compassion.  

WHO CAN HAVE COMPASSION ON THE IGNORANT, AND ON THEM THAT ARE OUT OF THE WAY, FOR THAT HE HIMSELF ALSO IS COMPASSED WITH INFIRMITY.  HEBREWS 5:2 KING JAMES.   

FINALLY BE YE ALL OF ONE MIND, HAVING COMPASSION ONE OF ANOTHER, LOVE AS BRETHREN, BE PITIFUL BE COURTEOUS.  

MARK 1:41. KJV.  

AND OF SOME HAVE COMPASSION, MAKING A DIFFERENCE.  

JUDE 1:22.  KJV. 

Just my thoughts,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You can quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

There are spiritual dangers, when people, and yes Christians, do not see sin, and call it for what it is, and for whatever reasons, whether it is being politically correct, or rebellion, or even a lack of knowledge, they are setting themselves up for a fall. A big fall!  

And they defend sin, and call it “judging”, and they do not see the warnings from God, and yes other Christians, who stand up for truth.

The reason, I say, “so called” Christians, is because lately, I see a strong trend, of those who say and claim they are Christians, and they believe in God, but they are disobedient to God, and His Holy word, and they are actually rebellious, and defend the lies from the devil.  

To me these type of people, have become pawns for the devil.  And people do not even see it.   They do not see the deception, or the disobedience, to God, and they are actually striving against the truth.  They are striving, and fighting against other Christians.

I see it more then ever, and I see, the deception.  I guess it is a strong sign of the end of times.  I see how many, are twisting and taking the gospel, and ignoring it.  Or the watered versions, of gospel, they are using, is so taken out of context, that they have no true foundation, to stand on.

I see it from the top!  Prominent “so called” Christian leaders, who may have a sense of sin.  And they curse, with scripture, but its not what God really says.  According to King James scripture.

Or those again, who defend sin, and attack those who stand on the true word of God.  Its a mess out there!  And God, must shake His head, at those who could be doing good for the Kingdom of God, but they have no true moral compass, or a sense of what pleases God, and what does not!  And because of that, they are in spiritual danger.

I have been in more battles, with “so called” Christians lately, that my concern has really taken a shift, to see this and call it for what it is!  Because more “so called” Christians, are being called from the devil!  To defy holy word, to attack other brothers and sisters in Christ, and they are lining up, with their rhetoric, that is part truth, and part lie.  They are pawns of satan.  And maybe calling them this, they will see the deception and repent!  And maybe throw away their pride, and apologize, so God truly can bless them.  Yes I hope the person, who did this to me reads this.  

For they are being used by the enemy. Twisting scriptures.  Yesterday, I got such a response as this.  As a “friend” on FB, attacked my post, where a church, was compromising biblical truths, and principles, and taking the stance, that in this changing society, we as Christians, need to change our stance, to be more friendly, and more politically correct.  And I called that garbage!  And I called it for what it is, we are to “come out from among them.”  

We are not to stop and change, our stance!  Sin is sin.  Yes, we are called to love the sinner, but we are called to hate the sin.  And with that we are to warn others, and that is what I did.  I was not judging anyone in particular, but I was judging the “sin” of this pastor, and the church, he represents.

But instead, what I got from this “so called” friend, and Christian, that we are to love one another, and to not throw stones!  And judging, would come down on any one who does that!  Excuse me, I am loyal to what God says!  We are called to judge righteously.  See John 7:24 from a King James.

And thats the whole problem, with many “so called” Christians, that they do not see what God says, and they are in disobedience.   And if you throw a stone at me, I will not just take it!  Don’t be surprised, if I throw it back.  

Because I do actually hate sin.  I may love the sinner, but I hate sin, and I see how it steals from any one of us.

If any one challenges me, they better have King James scriptures, to back it up.  Because you cannot take part scripture, no matter how true it is, and make it try to look like I am the bad judgmental Christian, because you cannot see the deception and yes, the lies of sin.  And that is what the devil wants to do.  I will show you what God says!  I will use my true sword of truth!  

And I warn others to use a King James bible, and many do not see it as well, and they think you are judging them.  But yet, I am telling them what God says, do not change, add or delete word.  And I am warning them they have rubber swords, but if a person, wants to disobey God, I can only try so much.  

I am glad, I know scripture, I am glad I know truth, because I know what pleases God, and I will be loyal to that!

I am actually irked this morning, as I write this, because I see so many “so called” Christians, and if they know truth, they do not stand for it.  They are silent.  And if they know part truth, they take that part, and distort it, and actually come against the agenda of God.  What is God going to tell you when you stand in front of God?

God says, KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?  BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATIORS, NOR IDOLATERS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND.  I CORINTHIANS 6:9.

And as an added thought, concerning the conversation I had with this person who was defending sin, homosexual sin.  This is what God also says concerning it, in the church.

THERE SHALL BE NO WHORE OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL, NOR A SODOMITE OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL.  THOU SHALT NOT BRING THE HIRE OF A WHORE, OR THE PRICE OF A DOG, INTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD THY GOD FOR ANY VOW:  FOR EVEN BOTH THESE ARE ABOMINATION UNTO THE LORD THY GOD.  Deuteronomy 23:17-18.  

And for the sake of clarification, homosexual, is not in the King James bible, and the word sodomite is the same as a homosexual.  The word homosexual is a modern word.

Look I don’t understand the nature of this sin. Why some think they are born that way.  But it is a curse.  And it is a sin, and you have to get to the root of sin, and repent, and give it to Christ to cleanse someone. But enabling sin, and defending it, is wrong.

And I don’t hate people, but I do hate the sin.  I see, and hear so many reports, of people, victimized, by sin.  Innocent children.  Babies abused.  By even the nature of this.  For it repeats itself.  Over, and over again.  And if I could show people to beware of sin, and not accept it.  Not enable others as well, by defending it, maybe, someone could be free.  But to promote it, to allow it, and to accept it, when God says be free, be clean, and come out of that.  And of all places by a pastor, and the church he represents.  He is a wolf in sheeps clothing.  Well, there is a chance for change.  And this is where I got challenged.  Because we all have the choice.  We all have to obey, or disobey.  And I will obey God.  And call it sin!

WHEREFORE COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, SAITH THE LORD, AND TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING:  AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU, AND WILL BE A FATHER UNTO YOU, AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS , SAITH THE LORD ALMIGHTY.  II Corinthians 6:17-18,  

Don’t they see, they will not be blessed?  Don’t they see, that you have to trust God, and obey Him?  Don’t they see, the spiritual dangers of this?  God says, submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee.  But no, they start fighting with other Christians, and calling it judging, when all I really was doing is warning my brothers and sisters in Christ.  And yes other Christians who are in the true word, see this.  And they face this same dilemma.

Yes warning them.  Not judging them.  I have had enough sin in my own life, to scream and tell my brothers and sisters, watch out for the deception.  Stay away from the fire!  You will get burned!  Watch out for the lies from the enemy.  I have had these kind of battles, because I cannot fathom, why Christians, who know the truth, cannot see the deception in defending these lies.  I tell many of them REPENT!  

I have had my methods challenged, I have been told, they did not like my style!  Well too bad, because I will be obedient to God, and you don’t like it, thats your problem, my loyalties are to God first.

Because you are not seeing the whole picture.  You are being deceived.   When any one comes against the word of God, and will deny it and defy it, yes they are in spiritual danger.  This is disobedience.

More then they know.  For God is not mocked.  And the fear of God, that I talk about should be evident in all of us.  And more specifically that is in my King James bible says ‘FEAR GOD”!

God has that power to throw many into hell.  Salvation is not secure, when you disobey God!  And yes folks this is scriptural.  Read Revelation 22:18-19 from a King where it talks about changing Gods Holy word, one can be denied access to the Holy city.  

And Read Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33, where we are called to warn one another!  Because a righteous person, will die, if they disobey!  Remember Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  But if one is in sin, and does not repent, they lose their gift of salvation.  They lose their way to the Kingdom of God. No ifs, buts or maybes.  Sin will separate you from God.

So yes, I do love, but my love has to be God first.  It cannot be compromised, and it cannot give place to the enemy.

But no, many of these people will not admit this, due to their pride.  They will not repent, let alone apologize to someone who knows truth, and they want to make a person an outcast.  They will not admit the error of their ways, so they can grow.  So they can be cleansed truly, and their garments white.  They want God, but they do not want to trust Him, and obey Him.  

Well I will trust and obey!  And I pray to be a true voice for Christ, because I know now the difference!

SHE OBEYED NOT THE VOICE: SHE RECEIVED NOT CORRECTION; SHE TRUSTED NOT IN THE LORD; SHE DREW NOT NEAR TO HER GOD.  Zephaniah 3:2.  

No wonder Christ told us, they would throw us out of the churches.  No wonder, He said we would be hated.  No wonder….

Well, to each their own.  You can tell people, truth.  But if they do not receive it.  I shake the dust off.  

Recently, I wrote I am not as gracious as I used to be.  And only when Christ prompts me to be courteous I will.  But I will not let someone, take the love I have for God in obedience, and stomp on the truth that saved me.  The sacrifice of Christ was too great.  I will speak up!

And first I will say, why are you becoming a pawn for the devil?  In fighting me.  Because you are fighting God.  And HE never loses a fight…..

Please Note:  I just said a prayer, frustrated, and God gave me this scripture as I asked for encouragement.  So I am adding it here…Don’t think He will not take His wrath.  He will.

AND I WILL PERSECUTE THEM WITH THE SWORD, WITH THE FAMINE, AND WITH THE PESTILENCE, AND WILL DELIVER THEM TO BE REMOVED TO ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE EARTH, TO BE A CURSE, AND AN ASTONISHMENT, AND AN HISSING, AND A REPROACH AMONG ALL THE NATIONS, WHITHER I HAVE DRIVEN THEM: BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT HEARKENED TO MY WORDS, SAITH THE LORD, WHICH SENT UNTO THEM BY MY SERVANTS THE PROPHETS, RISING UP EARLY AND SENDING THEM; BUT YE WOULD NOT HEAR, SAITH THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 29:18-19.  

Blessings, 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,

Wisdom, where does it come from?  The scriptures tell us that the fear of God, is the beginning of knowledge.  But where do we learn knowledge to be wise?  By first fearing God.

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE: BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION.  Proverbs 1:7.

I probably cannot even count the conversations I have had with people, who have denied the fear of God.  Where they have argued, that they do not fear God, and they probably think I am nuts.  But I don’t care.  

I know, it is a good thing, a healthy thing to fear God.  I attribute it to keeping me out of trouble.

Yet, as I contemplate this, I know as a writer, I know why I embrace the fear of God.  For I am a truth seeker, and as a truth seeker I must seek His truth, not mine, not mans, not other preachers, not the worlds…..

Because God is mighty, powerful, and it is all established according to His ways, His truth, His view point.  Not mine, or anyone else.  I must seek His will to please Him.  

I admit, I have the fear of God, because I know my life, is in His hands.  My soul is also in His hands, and He has the right and power to let me into heaven, and I do not want any consequences of hell.

BUT I WILL FOREWARN YOU WHOM YE SHALL FEAR: FEAR HIM, WHICH AFTER HE HATH KILLED HATH POWER TO CAST INTO HELL: YEA, I SAY UNTO YOU, FEAR HIM.  Luke 12:5

So I want His protection.  At a moments notice, for anything.  I don’t want to give the enemy a legal right to attack.  More then anything I do not want to displease God.  So, I trust the fear of God, to be my guard.  It can make a difference at a moments notice.  And I do rely on God, for His promises.  But I must not distort, or change, or add to His truth, so this is why I am afraid of God, in anything I do for God.  

I do not hear or see the fear of God taught, by anyone.  And that makes me sad.  Because many in the body of Christ need to know it, to understand it.  But where do we learn?  But from God Himself.  

So what do I do?  I obey even in my writing…..but what is based on?  My thoughts, or Gods thoughts?  It must be Gods thoughts!  

So, I must seek a Holy, and true word, a word that has not been compromised, changed, added to, or deleted.  The purest of words at least that is available in this time and place.  I choose a King James Holy word, for it has been preserved for 400 years.  I do not seek other versions for understanding of words, for I know the Holy spirit is my teacher.  I know the Holy spirit will bring understanding.  

KNOWING THIS FIRST, THAT NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.  II PETER 1:20

I have always wondered why people use other Bible versions, when the context has been changed, how can you search for a word in a Bible, if the word has been changed, so the content is changed.  Thereby corrupting it.

Well, as I write this though, I do want to emphasize about fearing God, and this is why I won’t use another Bible.  Because I have seen other pastors, and I have listened to them, and many who I will not name, they are lost.  Themselves, the blind, leading the blind.  

AND 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

I know, as a writer, of Gods word, I have to build a strong foundation.   Because I do not want to be blind, or lead anyone else deceptively.  If not for a Holy word. Who would believe me?  Without it?  No one.  I don’t have a charming personality, or an agenda, that is anything but to serve God.  I have never been popular.  I have been in so many fights in my life, to survive, that I know, I am nothing without God.  Sounds a little harsh, I know, but it is true in my example.  

So, the foundation I always need, to back me up is Gods Holy word.  

But I know this, because I have watched others.  

I have learned, because I have seen discrepancies in many ministries, that I need to know the truth.  I get a check in my spirit, when I hear something that takes away from the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I get a check, when people compromise truth.  Or even suggest there is not a difference in doctrine, between other religions.  I get a check in my spirit, to go to Gods word.  For it is Holy.

I don’t take what other people say, as truth.  Not till I confirm it by the word they share, that again is Holy King James word, or my own research in the scriptures.  If it is not King James word, I am sorry, but I dismiss it, because again I know scripture has been added, changed, or deleted.  Even though others have the best intention, I don’t hold it against them, but I don’t count on their truth, as truth.    

I get that check as well, because even though, I am low on the totem pole so to speak, and there are great and wonderful servants of the Lord, and I know God is not a respecter of persons, but I get that check in the fear of God, because I know many do look to me, and learn from me.  

And what does it say, if any of us, do not present the truth of the gospel, and mislead others?  Yes it is a great responsibility, no matter who we are, or where we are on the vine with Christ.  We have to be careful, what we teach, and what we say, for lives can be impacted.  

So I take it with great responsibility, as an honor, in anything I do for the Kingdom, of God.  It is His Kingdom, not mine, so this humbles me, to be ever so careful and not distort His truth.  

But in this fear again, I have, that scares me as a servant, I realize I have a great responsibility to write truth.  Gods truth.  It scares me, when I hear or read other pastors who have compromised it, and though I do not want to name them, or judge them, I judge the fruit of the deception that comes when Gods holy truth has not been presented.  

It brings curses.  It brings deception.  It brings half truth, half lies, that I want no part of.  For I see the devils ugly hand in it.  I don’t want to know any more about the devil, but what God has shown me.  In His Holy word.  And His word, has shown me, the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  

And I want to know what Christ said, what God the father said, what the Holy Spirit reveals to me.  But I know when God does show me, it is to teach me, correct me, and instruct me, as to what His ways are.  And to show me, that He comes to give life, and life abundantly.  

THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY:  I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  John 10:10  

The enemy does want to steal truth from your eyes, your heart, so you will not grow.  Do you notice the scripture says “might” have it more abundantly?  If you do not get pure word, you are taking a chance, to get it right.  You might not, but you might if you study Gods word, and apply it correctly.  Because it will prosper in that thing, and not return void!  

SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE, AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERETO I SENT IT.  ISAIAH 55:11

But yes, I am afraid.  For someday, I will stand before God, I pray, even now, in repentance, and humbleness,  if I have said or done anything that God will correct me, before I stand before Him.  And I ask for His mercy.  For I am not perfect.

But I take great consideration to have fear of God.  To want to do it right, to be totally focused on God, and not anybody else.  It makes me think, especially as I see how deception can come when any of us, only think of what man says, and not God.  

Friend, I seriously recommend, get a good King James Bible, and do your own research.  It will make a difference.  I pray, just to please God.  

I know many will just dismiss me or my thoughts, even here, but please don’t dismiss God.  Please don’t whoever you are, reading this.  As a warning I tell you this in love, but I tell you this as well, in fear of God, that God is not mocked.  

BE NOT DECEIVED: GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7.  

We reap what we sow.  Let us sow His truth, and receive it as well.  He sacrificed His life for us, to be free.  And by His stripes we are healed, physically and yes our souls. Read Isaiah 53:5 from a King James.  

Let us Honor Him with His truth.  

Let us not get entangled in any deception that takes away from His Holy truth.  I plead with you, to understand the fear of God.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

A WORD TO THE ATHEIST, THE AGNOSTIC, AND EVEN THE SLOW BELIEVER ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

I have an urgency in my heart, a great stirring to write this word.  Because for someone, who is reading this, if you do not heed this, your soul, may be doomed for eternity.  It may be too late for you if you disregard this!

There is no way, any of us, can have hope, or be optimistic, for anything, if God is not in the picture.  If God is not the source, to put that hope or optimism in.  There is frankly, no hope.

I don’t know how any one of us, can refuse to acknowledge, and accept a God, who created the heavens and the earth.  Who breathes life, into every living thing.  Who knows every secret, every bit of wisdom, and knowledge.  Who is life itself…..

I don’t know how any one of us can refuse to see He  sent us Jesus Christ, as the way, the truth and life.  No other false god, can do what Christ can!

I don’t know how someone can yes, stupidly, can deny the only one who can make a way, and a miracle when you need one.  

And we all need miracles now, and then.  I don’t care who you are, you don’t leave hope like this to the chances of luck.  There is no such thing.  Either you are blessed or cursed.  This is life!  The way God made it. And He has principles, that either we follow or don’t. But He gives us the choice.

But let me refresh my own memory.  Yes, I was a stupid person at one time. Yes, I went around, in my young adult years, denying God.  Denying who He is, and what He could do.  How arrogant, and yes how stupid I was.

You see, those were the darkest, loneliest, and most frustrating times of my life.  But it was my fault.  For it is a choice.  I had no vision.  I had no direction.  I had no sense of true love.  I had nothing!  I was a miserable failure.  A miserable, human being, who had fallen into sin, and I was practically destroying myself.

Sin separates us from God.  And until we repent, we are doomed.

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.  Isaiah 59:2

When you are young, you think you can do almost anything, and some have so much “pride” that sometimes, you can be so full of yourself, that confidence, is not a problem.  Denial of who God is, in that confidence, is the problem.

I know.  I hit the bottom of the barrel.  I hit hard.  I had no one, or true friends, to help me see my way through.  No love.  Substitutes, cannot be found, in money, drugs, sex, or self.  Only when I cried out to God, who heard my cry, did I begin to find my way.  And I will tell you the truth.  I reaped what I sowed, into my own life.  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked.  Galatians 6:7.  Read it from a King James.

I have walked now with God for over 35 years.  I will not let go.  But, I just have a sense, if I had not denied God even when I did, things would be different.  I reaped my own destruction, by denying God.  But God….yes He is the great restorer, and healer.  But I have my own battle scars to remind me.  How lost I was, and misguided.

I give you this word, maybe you are young, maybe you don’t know better.  Maybe you are old, and do not know better…

But it is better to turn now to God, Atheist, Agnostic, and yes, slow believer.  Its not too late, He can change your life, your circumstances, even save your soul.

Turn to God with all you have.  Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, and here is an important key, repent!

Give Him praise, Glory and Honor.  See who He is.  See His love.  See the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus, that He gave on that cross, for your sins, and yes for mine.  Serve God with all your heart!

Tell others about Jesus, because to tell you the truth, you have no other time but now to do it.  (slow believer) This is your chance, NOW IN YOUR LIFETIME!!!!

Don’t deny Him. Let Him heal you, by His stripes you are healed.  Let Him heal your emotions, your sorrow, your own losses.  Let Him counsel you, and give you direction.  Let Him take your pain and sadness.  Let Him love you, because He does.

So much so, He took the penalty of all of our sin, and on that third day after His death, He even defeated death.  Because He took the keys from the devil, and arose.  This is why Resurrection Sunday is so precious to us as believers.  Also known as Easter.  But it is not a pagan holiday.  It is truth.  And because of this, this is why He is the way, and life!

Don’t bring curses into your own life.  Don’t lose the only hope, you can truly have.  Because the truth of the matter, if you deny God, you accept satan.  This is what God sees, and it is recorded in the book of life, concerning you.

To deny God, it means….You accept the liar, and the thief, who comes to kill steal, and destroy your life.  You accept, the deception, and the misguided sense of who you are.  For you will never truly know your potential, if you deny God.  You will always be lost.  Yes full of yourself, with your arrorant, angry foolish self.  But really full of the devil.  Full of the spirit of lies.  For you are lying to yourself.  Love, that you truly long for, will never be yours.  Because it is not based on God, and God is love.  If you deny God, you deny yourself love.

I am not going to sugar coat this, it is truth, and yes I am a truth seeker.  I want to bless God.  Because the truth of the matter is, there is no hope without God.  There is no optimism for anything to change if you deny God.  You are your own worst enemy if you deny God.

But you can start, even where you are.  You can seek God, you can find Him, truth of the matter is He knows where you are.  But your sins, your denial of Him, has separated Him from you.  You can begin, atheist, agnostic, and slow believer.  You can begin, right now!

But it is up to you.  It is a choice.  Every day it is a choice, but I choose to stay close to my Lord.  Who is that way.  No I don’t have it easy.  But I have full assurance, in my faith, that He is real.  God is real.  And I will never be so stupid to deny Him, when He has proven Himself to me, over and over, and over again.  Maybe not always in the ways I wanted but He is my hope.  He is my savior!  My Lord!  My healer and so much more!  He is my optimism.  And I will never let Him go.

So, to each their own.  It is a choice.  This is not up for debate or argument.  I know, but I plead with you, atheist, agnostic, and even the slow believer…..I plead with you, because your soul is at stake.

Maybe you can share this message, with your friends, or maybe you are ashamed so you will not.  You never want Christ to say that to you.  That you were ashamed of Him.  And He would say, I never knew you.

And if you do not make it right with God NOW!  You may face eternity in hell.  This is the word of the Lord, from my King James Bible, and I know that it is true, and holy, and is truth.  Open a King James bible, to learn the truth.  To receive, the anointing and holiness.  No I don’t recommend any other Bible.  Why?  Because they have been corrupted.  From all the revisions, that have been made. Part holy, part truth, part lie.  No, go for the purity of a word, so your own spirit can be pure.  A coloring book, cannot give you all the truth you need.

So you need faith, you need to see, the truth.

BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM, FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.  HEBREWS 11:6

In Christ,  Elena Ramirez

Lord, obedient, I have written this, use it for your glory.  In Jesus name.  Amen 

I have faith, I wrote a book…entitled;  HOW TO HAVE FAITH MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I also have a secret to true love, in my book.  A secret that truly has brought true love to my marriage.  You may be lonely, and looking for love.  Or also in a relationship that you want restored, and healed.
