AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_72c.jpeg

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS…..

A letter to personal friends, friends, I know on Fb only, and friends, I cherish, friends, I hardly know. Friends, who are really no longer friends to me. Yet I call you friends.

Friends, I take that word seriously.

I want to start the New Year of 2017 on a clear slate. I want to make sure, that I ask God for forgiveness. First. Because He is our King. And well because sometimes, well, maybe I sin. And I don’t even know. That I have sinned. Maybe I think something, or do something, that may offend Him. So I repent.

But I want to take this further, with you my friends, so I write this as an open letter. I ask that you forgive me.

I ask you to forgive me, if I come off to strong. If I come off with maybe something you see as being, arrogant. Or I come off, like I am too good. Or a know it all. Forgive me.

I ask you to forgive me, if I write something, that you may take personally. And maybe, I did not think of you in that way, but you took it personally, as if perhaps I was judging you. Forgive me.

Forgive me, if I let you down. If I perhaps committed to do something, but something else got in the way, and you felt slighted, rejected, or put off by me. Forgive me.

Forgive me if I said I would do something, but it did not happen in the way you thought it would. Forgive me.

You see, more then ever, I want to be an expression of Christ. But I know, by wisdom, that we do not all see it all the same. We don’t always all agree. And we are all growing on the vine at different places.

If I share something, or tell you something, even generally, I would hope you would see, that I say it, I share it, because I love you. I love our Lord, and I love truth. I think the thing I hate most is a lie. I hate, how it deceives. Yet I know truth can hurt. So forgive me.

I just know as I look back on this year, that I have had good intentions, but they did not always come through that way. I felt misunderstood, I felt sad, that people change. But that I have too.

I felt sad when I was challenged, and I gave grace, but grace was not extended to me.

I just know its a part of life. We all may want to do the best, we can. but we don’t always come through. So, I reflect on my own life, to ask God and you all to forgive me, if I came across, your way, but you did not see love. You saw something else.

Forgive me. I reflect because I hope to learn from my mistakes. But I realize we all make mistakes. We all sin, we all come short of His glory. He is the only one that is perfect.

I really do want to try. I really do want to be a reflection of Christ. I really do want to clean the slate. Resolutions…. are wonderful goals, if they are committed by Christ.

I just pray, to be someone God will extend mercy to too. So thank you, as I ask for forgiveness.

I don’t care if someone does not understand this, or may mock this….but I know, being humble in the sight of God, and not being proud. Not being accountable, really hurts me more in the long run.

So, I say, Forgive me. Thank you, and God bless you….. May God bless your new year, in whatever you may do.

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

Sin, it separates us from God.  Sometimes we don’t even know we sin, because we think we are o.k.  But then a heartache may come, a sorrow, and we cannot understand why could this even happen to us?  

God uses these things to draw us close to Him, if we just only search….

You see, we do reap what we sow.  Some call it Karma, but it is a scriptural principle.  So please do not use that word, like the world.  Understand it by the scripture.  The “principle” of Gods Kingdom.  

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED; FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION; BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING.  GALATIANS 6:7-8

Like what goes up, comes down.  Its the principles, of life, God has placed, as parameters, to guide us.  To teach us.  To protect us.  To know, with understanding, and true knowledge, His ways.  

Sometimes, it takes a whole lifetime, to teach us these things, but if we receive the instruction and correct them in time, we may be able not only to avoid heartache, but receive healing.  Not only spiritual, but even physical.  Even for future generations.  If we see it in time, we may even produce fruit.  Spiritual fruit, as well, as physical fruit.  

I feel like I am talking to someone.  Yet, I know this applies to all of us.  God is talking to all of us.  But, I know because of my own life.  I know, I have reaped, many things, that I wish I had not gone through.  These heartaches and sorrows.  Even physical ailments, have caused me to humble myself in the sight of God, and ask why?  And He has shown me through His holy word.  My sins, separated me from God.  

But I have learned from these sorrows and heartaches, and I humble myself before God.  Pleading the blood of Jesus, acknowledging my sins.  Even now still, I think of my past sins, and I am so ashamed.  

They caused heartache, sorrows, and even illness.  Yes illness.  If you smoke, or sin, the sin, produces illness.  Like cancer.  

One might ask, how can a good God, allow heartache and sorrow?  Look at the world, some may say.  There is this and that, and what kind of a good God would allow this?  

If we look closer, even with Adam and Eve, He did not want us to eat from the tree of good and evil.  But disobedience, caused it.  It separated them from God, and to this day, it will also separate us from Him.  

Yet, they do not see, that when we disobey.  When we do not take God at His holy word, there are repercussions.  Christ warned us.  He said, do not be deceived.  He told us, that the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  We are told, not to give place to the enemy.  We are told, not to sin.  We are told, we reap what we sow.  We are told truth.  But many do not heed it.  

The principle then takes an alternate route from the good things God has promised, and therein is the answer.  Its disobedience.  And that does not produce good things.  

God has taught me, and it has humbled me, so much so.  I throw away any pride, any self ability, and see, I am nothing without God.  I cried an still do cry at the mercy seat, and my Lord, did have mercy on me.

And does, but I am so careful now.  So very, very careful, to try and do it His way.  Because though, I am not exactly where I wanted to be, or could have been.  I have now just a strong sense of who He is.  And the love, and mercy He extends to all of us.  By sending His Son, our Lord, to die for my sins, on that cross, has given me such a strong desire to learn His ways.  To obey.  Our dear Lord Jesus, took our sins, upon Him.  

Yes, God corrects us, but He tells us, He does so, because He loves us.  

MY SON, DESPISE NOT THE CHASTENING OF THE LORD; NEITHER BE WEARY OF HIS CORRECTION:  FOR WHOM THE LORD LOVETH HE CORRECTETH; EVEN AS A FATHER THE SON IN WHOM HE DELIGHTETH.  HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT FINDETH WISDOM, AND THE MAN THAT GETTETH UNDERSTANDING.  PROVERBS 3:11-12.  

This love, does have conditions.  People say, oh God loves you unconditionally.  But thats wrong to say.  He loves you, yes, but He does not accept sin.  He does not accept disobedience.  He has conditions, and they produce excellence. The fear of God, is so important in matters like this.  

But then again you hear.  I don’t fear God.  He is too good.  Yes, He is good, but He is not mocked.  Again, we reap what we sow.  Teachings that do not include being in obedience, with fear of God, do not take His holy word to heart.  When was the last time you heard that?

And this is what I see, as I look at so many ministries, and feel good religions, that take truth, and disregard it.  They do not take a Holy word, and an anointed word, a King James preserved word, and they use these corrupted bibles, and mans word, to validate something, that God has not approved of, or accepted.  

And people wonder why God has abandoned them, or will not answer their prayer, or let them continue to have heartache and sorrow, or whatever else it may be that ails them.

There is no peace to the wicked.  This is scriptural. Look it up in a King James bible.  Begin searching for answers.  You will find them.  But….

There is no answer without God in it.  Our world, has purposely decided, to eliminate God from the picture, and because of that, it has brought curses.  

Think about the curses, that the Egyptians, reaped, when they would not let the people of God free, and Moses, continually went back and forth.  Everything from pestilence, to frogs, to the first born dying, were curses, because they would not believe God.  To set those people free.

Now we see in our world, everything, as well, that clearly shows, the repercussions, of sins.  I pray we get it right.  But we have in our world, many heartaches, and sorrows, because of our disobedience.  

I can only suggest, that you study yourself, your ways, your thoughts, and see what are they based on?  God could use you.  

Repentance, clears the slate, for all of us.  None is holy, we all have sinned, we all fall short of the glory of God.  

But I write to you, if you wonder why you have had this heartache or heartaches.  Just so you know, again, God will, and can and does use these things to correct us, to change us, to His ways.  

Repentance, and prayer, with a good King James Bible are the tools you need to change, that heartache and sorrow, to joy in the Lord.  Learning Gods ways.  

And I just have to say something here as well, as the Lord prompts me, do not return evil from some heartache or sorrow you have gotten even from someone else.  Vengeance belongs to God not us.  

You may be hurt, and with sorrow, and may not understand the principles, but seek God, let Him, mend your heart.  Let Him, show you His ways.  Let Him, be your comfort.  Let Him, be your love.  

This is not the time to be lazy.  Or put it off.  Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  Get it right now.  WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Truth counts….Not only now my friends, but for eternity.  Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6 King James.

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.

If interested in reading my books via Smashwords, go to this link. My latest book. BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST. This book brings attention to the behaviors, one may have that can contribute to a curse. But by Christ it can change into a blessing. A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do….

BUT THEY AND OUR FATHERS DEALT PROUDLY, AND HARDENED THEIR NECKS, AND HEARKENED NOT TO THY COMMANDMENTS.  AND REFUSED TO OBEY, NEITHER WERE MINDFUL OF THY WONDERS THAT THOU DIDST AMONG THEM; BUT HARDENED THEIR NECKS, AND IN THEIR REBELLION APPOINTED A CAPTAIN TO RETURN TO THEIR BONDAGE:  BUT THOU ART A GOD READY TO PARDON, GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL, SLOW TO ANGER, AND OF GREAT KINDNESS AND FORSOOKEST THEM NOT.  NEHEMIAH 9;16-17.

So who are you appointing as your captain?  And can you see even in this scripture how good God is?

Rebellion, will hold you back.  And when I say hold you back, I am talking about growth, I am talking about blessings, and being in right standing with God.

So many times, when I was young, I was rebellious.  And it did hold me back.  I fell through the cracks, because of it.  Yet, no one reached out to me, with love, to tell me about this trait.  I want to do that now.  In love, and yes truth.

Because many times, we don’t learn, until we experience something.  And when we do, after a time of trial and error, we can see our ways.  But it truly does come by “submitting” to God.  But if I can spare someone some heart ache, I pray you take this to heart.  

And even here I want to thank God, and give Him praise for teaching me, and loving me, and yes forgiving me.  

King James scripture tells us; Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7.

There are so many times, I have tried on my own to do something, but what was missing, was that I was not submitting to God, completely.  Its like lip service.  You say you are a Christian.  But if your heart is not right before God, and you have traits, or characteristics, that do not reflect what God says, that is rebellion.

And God hates rebellion.  The devil was rebellious toward God.   So if you see that in yourself and you want to get right with God repent.  Because it is a characteristic of the enemy, and you do not want that in you.

And yes, the fear of God, which is very scriptural should come into mind, soul, and spirit, to remind us that the fear of God is healthy, for us in submission, and  to see even that characteristic of rebellion does not come from God, but yes the devil.  

Fearing God, makes you obey.  Because you love God.  Fearing God makes you realize there are consequences to doing it His way, or not.  And if you do not, you will pay the price.  Some how some way.  Its a principle, that comes into affect.  For we do reap what we sow.  Some would call it karma, but that is not a scriptural word.  It is reaping and sowing.  Galatians 6:7.  BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  

Sadly, I do see that characteristic, of rebellion among many Christians. We are known by our fruit.Luke 6:44.  For every tree is known by his own fruit…….

Oh some may be polite, and there are those who are rude, but some may just outright reject truth, when you bring truth to them, but they dismiss it, and pick and choose….but there is always that word that comes up, “JUDGING.”  

And instead of seeing that perhaps someone can see that rebellion, or see that you are on the wrong path, you may get offended.  Instead of being humble in the sight of God, and yes letting go of pride.  Which goes hand in hand with rebellion.  

There are some of us, who are not false in our walk with God, and God has brought them to us to help us, but if you reject them in rebellion, you are also rejecting Christ.  THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE GOD OF ISRAEL; GO AND TELL THE MEN OF JUDGAH AND THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM, WILL YE NOT RECEIVE INSTRUCTION TO HEARKEN TO MY WORDS?  SAITH THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 35:13.

And the devil has taken that scripture, of “thou shalt not judge”, twisted it, and made it to be offensive, when really God may be trying to correct you, and get you on the right path, and wanting to bless you, but you reject truth.  You are rebellious.  So you hold yourself back and the blessings.  

I have a few friends, on social media, who I have tried to bring truth to.  Concerning the King James Bible, and I have tried over, and over again, to show them the many discrepancies from other Bible versions, and they may be polite, but they do reject truth.  And then there are those who have tried to fight me with this, and yes rudely.  

I am not judging them, thats not my job.  God will judge though.  What I am trying to do is bring them this truth, in love, so they can get on the right path.

I have and will continue to try and show this in truth, that these versions are corrupt.  That many scriptures are missing from them, that God has warned us not to add, change or delete word.  

And yet when I have they reject this truth.  And it is rejected, this is rebellion.  

Yet all, I am trying to do is get them on the right path, to hear from God, to get an anointed word, a holy word, for any need they might have.  For really it is our manual to life.  Before we leave earth.  The King James bible has been preserved for over 400 years.  

Maybe you are reading this by chance.  But I truly believe it is by divine appointment.  God has his ways, and His timing.  Think about the people God freed, by Moses.  They murmured, and complained, and God called them a stiff necked people.  And because of their rebellion, their murmuring and complaining.  They did not find the promise land for 40 years.  They ran around in circles.  

AND THE LORDS ANGER WAS KINDLED AGAINST ISRAEL, AND HE MADE THEM WANDER IN THE WILDERNESS FORTY YEARS, UNTIL ALL THE GENERATION, THAT HAD DONE EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD WAS CONSUMED.  Numbers 32:13.

Even here we can see how important the fear of God is.  If only they had obeyed…..All of these things are attributed to rebellion.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to waste time, concerning Gods plan for me, or what could be.  

I know my rebellion has held me back.  I do fear God, more then ever, sometimes I read this Holy word, and I tremble, in fear, because one can miss it.  But I know who I am in Christ now, more then ever, by studying Gods word, by knowing what He wants.  And the King James is holy.  But more then ever, I pray to be right in His sight.  For His will, for His glory. 

There is a lot to being rebellion, according to the worlds ways, and the world will tell you do what you feel is best.  What feels good.  But that could also be rebellion.  If it is not in obedience to God.  This is why I will not use another bible version, because in the rebellion of these publishers, they rebelled, and corrupted Gods word, when He said, do not change or add to it, or delete it.  

YE SHALL NOT ADD UNTO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU, NEITHER SHALL YE DIMINISH OUGHT FROM IT, THAT YE MAY KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD WHICH I COMMAND YOU.  DEUTERONOMY 4:2

Also read Read Revelation 22:18-19 from the King James that one could lose their salvation.  One could lose their right to the Holy city by doing this.  In rebellion to changing His Holy word.  God has said He will breach his promises.  And thats if we do not keep our part of the covenant or our promises to His promises.  And it goes back to the example of what happened to those who rebelled.  See Numbers 14:34.  

In any event….I have a long ways to go still to be the best, I can be in Christ. But every day I will try to perfect it in Christ.  In His excellence, not mine.   By His standards not mine.  From my King James Bible.  There is no place for rebellion in my life.  Not after I really see what Christ did for me.  

So my question, is there rebellion in your life?  And can you see, you need to go to the throne of God, and repent of it, and obey?

Your growth and blessings are waiting for your answer.  

In service to Christ in love, Elena Ramirez

I know that this may sound strange, to some especially who do not understand, this love of Christ.  They do not understand, because they have not totally given Him their hearts….

But I want to be in love with Jesus so much, that I want to give Him my heart every day. Like when I first received Him in my Salvation.

I want my heart tender, and broke, knowing what He did for me on that cross, that I never, ever want to sin purposely again. I want to love what He loves, and yes hate what He hates, but having such a peace in my heart, that I would not give place to the enemy.

That anything of the enemy, would not be received in my heart.  That the Love of God, which is the armor of God would protect me. So that the ploys, the tactics of the enemy would not take affect to change me, or to be mean spirited, cruel, or harsh.  So I would not be selfish, or vain, or do or yes, feel anything that grieves the Holy Spirit.

For this makes a heart ugly, and cold.  And to be honest, this scares me, greatly.  Because I know the love of Christ.

No, I don’t want anything, that would take away that sweet spirit of God.  Fame, money, even favor, is not worth it, if it would change me, to lose that sense of who Christ is.

Oh dear friends, as I grow older and wiser, in who I am in Christ.  I realize how precious our salvation is.  It is to be cherished, it is to be honored, and respected.

The enemy, does want to deceive so many before Christ returns, and it wounds my heart, as it does Christ to see Christians, doing things like the world does.

Like unforgiving, or hating, other people, or just being uncaring, and unloving.  They don’t know some of them, that they have been deceived, but those ugly spirits, have taken control of them, and I believe many have lost their salvation.  They are not taught to guard it protect it, and be aware of how the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  

Or if they have, they have disregarded the promptings, the sweet voice of Christ, that warns us, if we listen.  

Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear:  but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.  

Knowing, that love, yes sweet love, is what always makes a difference in a heart.

This is what truly won my heart to Christ to begin with, for I saw how great His sacrifice. And…when I saw that He healed my heart, to know how beautiful His love is. If I give Him, my heart, every day, He will guard it, with His love.

He will protect it as a precious jewel, but dear ones, I have my part, we all do, and if we do not let Jesus rule our heart, then we can open the spiritual door to things we would never want for even our enemies. Let Christ guard your heart.

I say it in love, but I hope you hear my words in your own heart.  That you take to heart, how important it is in the fear of God as well, to be mindful, to be humble, soft, and pliable in the masters hands.

To protect your heart from the ways of the world.  Oh I pray this every day, that is why I say, I want to give my heart to Christ every day, so He can deliver me, protect me, and bless my heart, with His love.  Another reason, why I will only use a King James Bible, to hear only His voice, and to not hear Gods voice only would be deception, if I listened to anything but Him.  

Nothing, dear friends is worth losing the peace He gives us, the tender reassurance, of our Salvation.  Nothing is worth that.  Be very aware of the enemies tactics.

Only Christ can restore our hearts, even after salvation.  For we can fall, and do come short of the glory of God.  This is why I believe in daily repentance as well.   May God guide you.

May you be inspired by His love, to make a commitment to daily give Him your heart.  Much love, and with His thoughts, not mine, to remind you.

Elena Ramirez

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul, shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.  Isaiah 61:10.  

 

A Prayer of Hope…

Lord, I ask that you protect my heart, guard it, prompt me, by your Holy spirit, to daily make a commitment to you, to remind me to be careful, and may I have the armor on and quench the fiery darts of your enemy.  Help me to be not deceived by the cares of the world, or even let hate, anger, or a mean spirit, invade my thoughts, when Lord, your sacrifice was so great.

Lord help me to help others see that the enemy does deceive and we can lose our sense of you, by giving place to the enemy when we allow, yes allow hate, or anything that is not of you, in our hearts.  Help keep my heart soft because of your love, dear Jesus, please help me…

You see this scares me if I would ever lose your love, and reassurance you give when we have given our hearts to you for guidance.  I want to have a beautiful soul, that gives you glory, and nothing else, not for my glory, but for yours.

 In Jesus name.  Amen 

IN MINISTRY? USE THE KING JAMES SCRIPTURES ~ HERES WHY! ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word.  His true word the King James.  Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith....http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  new lower prices.

True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word. His true word the King James. Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith….http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com new lower prices.

Dear Friends, in Christ,

I write this as a letter, but as one of my posts, I want to encourage you, to pray, and write the word of God, from the King James Bible.  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.  Deuteronomy 6:9.

I specify the King James scriptures, because I truly believe the anointing, and holiness, are in these Bible verses.  There are so many compromises to scripture, that the anointing is gone I believe from these other versions.  And I know this is very controversial to some, who are searching for understanding.  But, when you take a scripture, that was originally based on the King James scripture, and convert it, something is lost there, and I do believe it is the holiness, and the anointing.  Remember the King James has been preserved for 400 years.  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 for ever.   Psalm 12:6-7.

Changing it turns into part truth, and part lie.  Remember what God says and in so many scriptures.  TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY: IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  ISAIAH 8:20.  

I do look at that.  And in this time and place of my ministry, I am a truth seeker.  I look at the fruit of ministries, I have grown that much.  I don’t take their word for it.  I take the true word of God, to validate truth.  I see so many compromising truth, that there are many ministries I won’t support, nor will I advocate to others, and in fact, I run from them.

Think of these words, from God, and know the truth….II Timothy 4:2-5  Preach the word be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves, teachers having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and they shall be turned unto fables.  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.  

Now, I just sense, that there are so many out there, who love God, and want to please God, and yet they need the power of scripture to build a foundation.  When you share word, King James scripture, there is an anointing, that speaks for itself.  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

One thing people can say about me, is for the most part, whenever I have a thought, I build that thought with a King James scripture.  I give that as a foundation.  Because lets be honest, without it, I would be like any other minister or pastor, who does not.  Look around, and see, that many do not share scripture, and without that, its just meaningless, our thoughts, without a foundation.  This separates us from wolves in sheeps clothing.

And I am not just talking about listing a scripture reference, I am talking about writing the entire verse out.  Doing this, sharpens your sword of truth, as well.  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?  John 5:47.  

If you want to be set apart to do the “true” work of God, you need to do some research.  If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.  I Corinthians 14:37.

You need to get a good concordance, that supports a King James Bible, and take the time, to look the scripture up, to add to your thought, and to build a foundation.  And in this time of technology, get a good King James Bible app.

This is time consuming.  I won’t deny that.  But as Christians, we cannot get lazy, nor passive, if we really do want to make a difference for God.  You need to start writing your thoughts out, with the Holy word of God, to support, your thoughts, that God will give you.  Even if you just search for a scripture, and write it on your social media pages, you are changing the spiritual realm, with Gods holy word.  Don’t let the world dictate to you this is wrong.  Whose report will you believe in?Who hath believed our report?  and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  Isaiah 53:1

As you do that, you are bringing light, to a dark world.  You are bringing truth, and no one can deny the word of God.  No matter what anybody says…the word stands on it’s own, and cannot be shaken.  It is truth.  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:  bind them about thy neck:  write them upon the table of thine heart.  Proverbs 3:3

And if you need answers to prayer, same thing.  Look up a scripture for your need.  Don’t get lazy in this.  For healing, finances, etc.  Studying the word of God, will stick with you, and you may not remember every single word.  But it will kick in.  We are to “pray without ceasing”….I Thessalonians 5:17.  For it is sanctified by the word of God, and prayer.  I Timothy 4:5.  And God will honor his word.

Yes, I do recommend trying to memorize scripture, but when you pray the word of God, when you write it, when you memorize it, you have a foundation for your own needs.  When you write it, the truth is you are sowing the word!  The sower soweth the word.  Mark 4:14.

I am so surprised, myself, that I have done this, but it comes to me, it gives me discernment, it gives me understanding, it connects me with the Holy Spirit, to know truth.  And in this, I give glory and praise to God, for He guides my life.  I have been writing for years, but He taught me that from the beginning.  Stablish Thy word unto Thy servant, who is devoted to Thy fear.  Psalm 119:38.  And yes, I do fear God.  It is health and life….The fear of the Lord tendeth to life:  and he that hath it shall abide satisfed: he shall not be visited with evil.  Proverbs 19:23.

If you want to be different in your ministry, and just as a Christian, start doing this now, and very soon, you will grow.  I do have a faith, and trust in God, that at this point of my life, I see the fruit of it.  I see, that with God all things are possible.  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.  Luke 18;27.

That does so very much for my faith.  I understand my Lord, in so many ways.  And there are things, I may not understand, but I know, that I know God is a holy God, and He has his ways, His principles, His truth.  Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be Holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.  Leviticus 19:2

I wrote in my last post, that yes, God is legalistic.  We have to know His heart in such matters.  Sloppy religion, grace based only on one part of doctrine, will not cut it.  You need the truth, and I hope, this post, of a letter, will encourage you, to write and pray Holy scripture from the King James Bible, so you can grow.  And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and the cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.  Joshua 8:34.

So you can make a difference to a world, that so needs Jesus Christ.  Please remember this and apply it, begin…. Finally my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.  To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.  Philippians 3:1.  

Do it because of your own salvation.  I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord, and thy law is my delight.  Psalm 119:174.

And with this last thought from God, as you finish reading this….remember this promise from God.  For it is a promise.  Let someone see you writing His word.  Let someone, who needs a promise from your own writings, let them see the promise from God.  More then anything, yes anything, let God see you writing His word!

You can make a difference for yourself, and for someone else, as you write and pray the Holy word of God….Share this post, as a start….

THEN SAID THE LORD UNTO ME, THOU HAST WELL SEEN:  FOR I WILL HASTEN MY WORD TO PERFORM IT.  Jeremiah 1: 12.

Much love, in Christ, with His thoughts….Elena Ramirez
