Do you ever sometimes, feel helpless, when people say mean things, and you don’t want to argue, but you know you should say something, but you don’t?
Well there is wisdom in that.
But, there are times wisdom should give you the boldness, the utterance, to stand and speak against something, or someone, a thought, an ideology, because it is wrong.
There is something fascinating, about sometimes seeing someone speak their mind. And even if it shocks you sometimes, you may admire someone, who does do that. Or be in shock, because they did, and you have no words, for that.
Timing is everything, because if the moment goes, and you don’t speak for or against that, you could lose your chance. I often pray for wisdom in this. Because there are some things, no matter what you say in return, it won’t matter.
Yet there are times, you cannot be so passive, or naive not to say something, because it gives someone with a bully mentality, permission to keep doing something like that.
I always look at the root of why someone, says something, or does not. And it always comes down, to what kind of spirit do they have? Is it love? Which comes from God. Or is it hate, which comes from the enemy, the devil?
I have asked God for discernment, to know when to speak. To know when I should take and use the authority, God gives me. I have not fine tuned this, but I do pray, for wisdom. Because there are some things, you have to say, in the name of Jesus, that is wrong, when people say some of the things they do.
But, may I add, God can fine tune me.
I just know, as an American, I have freedom of speech, and so I use it. I will not let people intimidate me, or try to make me feel insecure, by my race, and I guess I am writing this, because yesterday, just by my name they tried to use a racial insult, to try and do that, and I told them who I am.
As an American, and as someone who understands and knows the Constitution, etc. But someone, who has mastered the English language, that kind of slant against me, would not work. I will not let people tell me I don’t have that right, just because of my race.
No matter what the situation, with God, you can speak up. And you get courage, you get wisdom, and you call it for what it is.
But I tell you, because I have learned this…..Glory to God!
If you bow before God, you can stand in front of anyone.
PRAYING ALWAYS WITH ALL PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION IN THE SPIRIT, AND WATCHING THEREUNTO WITH ALL PERSEVERANCE AND SUPPLICATION FOR ALL SAINTS; AND FOR ME, THAT UTTERANCE MAY BE GIVEN UNTO ME, THAT I MAY OPEN MY MOUTH BOLDLY, TO MAKE KNOWN THE MYSTERY OF THE GOSPEL. FOR WHICH I AM AN AMBASSADOR IN BONDS; THAT THEREIN I MAY SPEAK BOLDLY, AS I OUGHT TO SPEAK.
EPHESIANS 6:18-20 KING JAMES.
MY THOUGHTS TO YOU FOR THE NEW YEAR OF 2016
Its the new year. And I want to encourage you this year, more then ever, to seek God. To learn His ways, to obey His commandments, to strive for excellence in your own life. To try and learn.
To change old ways, to be so mindful of the times we are in. To make things right by the ways of Jesus. For He is the way, the truth and life. John 14:6.
You may think, who is she to tell me these things?
I am not a pastor, I don’t have a theology degree. I don’t have any great accomplishments, besides surviving.
But I do know Gods word. My King James word. I am just a writer, who writes for the Lord…
I am just a sinner saved by grace. But I do not take that grace for granted. I am just someone who knows His law. And studies it. I do not just take grace for granted.
I do not want to just stay where I was. Or even where I am, when God is on the throne, and His ways are of excellence.
Yesterday, I heard a pastor say, God loves you just the way you are.
And yes God loves us so much that He sent Christ to die for our sins. But to stay where we are is an insult to what Christ did. But something rose up in my heart when I heard that pastor speak that.
For it does not inspire me, to stay where I am. It does not inspire any of us, if we do not reach for excellence. I was at the bottom of the pit. You may not be able to relate to that. You may have had things come your way, in every way. I was not granted that favor. My life was hard. It still is in many ways…
Things like family, or education, or even confidence did not come easy. I had to fight.
Did you have to fight, when you were a kid, just to survive? I did. And then I had to fight to clear my conscience before God. I had to fight for that which was good, and holy, and to stop walking the fence. Between knowing there is a God, and knowing the ways of the world. Yes fight! A good fight of faith.
Don’t stay where you were. Don’t trust these wolves in sheep clothing to lead you. Thats between you and Christ. To find that narrow path. It is a narrow path, its not easy.
But you know whats harder, being dumb. Or being ignorant to truth, when God gives it to us. He gives us His truth, and commandments in our King James Bible. He says, that His people perish for lack of knowledge. Look it up in a King James.
I wish you all love, and happiness, prosperity, good health that comes first from the spiritual and then is handed down to the physical…
But my prayer is that more then anything that you would see the manifestation of Gods power in your own life. For His glory!
But it is your responsibility to grow. To find out who you are in Christ. He has given you gifts, and callings that are just waiting to be tapped into.
Favor, with people, with situations, but you don’t use it. Some of you, are so beautiful. So famous…. so blessed, and you use it for nothing. Or so it seems.
How sad, it will be for many who will stand before God, and He will ask what did you do for my Kingdom? And they will not have anything to say.
He says, He will tells us I never knew you. And that will include because we did not serve Him.
I don’t want to be one of those. I may just be some girl from the West side of Denver, Colorado. But I know who my father is. I know what Christ did for me on that cross. I know the voice of the Holy spirit, and I will not follow another.
And I will, with all my being especially now as this year starts, I will try and learn and speak His truth. Express it, write it, say it, and give my God glory. Where ever He says go, I must go. If he says go. He has not for a long time…But I will still press on.
I will not be ashamed of the gospel. For it saved me. I will try and learn His ways, and tell others. Because tomorrow is not promised to any one.
Please don’t take your spiritual salvation, and learning for granted. Get a good King James bible, and yes throw those corrupt bibles away. They are not holy. They are not the voice of our Lord.
Step out do something new for yourself and God, your savior the Lord Jesus, don’t stay where you are. Yes God loves you the way you are.
He doesn’t like it, when you don’t grow. When you don’t tell others about Him. Don’t stay where you are. Step out….
This scripture below scares me in fear of God. Because He gives us chances…..
Don’t throw away your chance.
Happy New year…
I love you in Christ, just me, just my thoughts,
AND I WILL MAKE THEE LIKE THE TOP OF A ROCK: THOU SHALT BE A PLACE TO SPREAD NETS UPON: THOU SHALT BE BUILT NO MORE: FOR I THE LORD HAVE SPOKEN IT, SAITH THE LORD GOD. EZEKIEL 26:14. KJV.
To live happily ever after….
If I could warn girls and women of this I would….and that is don’t give yourself away.
Don’t take your sexuality, and give it to any man, without marriage. Without God, without holiness.
Don’t sell yourself short, and lose something that is precious to God, and to you, and that is virtue.
Virtue. No body talks about virtue any more. Nobody, tries to instill that in our society. Or teach that to our women.
Well I will. And it may fall on deaf ears….
But, when I even see a Christian organization, using wording that mentions prostitution as a “high class call girl”: To describe a womans journey to know God, and they describe her as that, what kind of message is that?
There is nothing high class, about a woman, desperate, enough, to sell her body, to get money. To have someone pay to use her, that is nothing short of prostitution. I don’t understand call it sin! Sin made her a prostitute.
So our society, and our world, and even Christian organizations do not see the evil of this. Or the danger. Or the sin. You know we all make mistakes. We all want to believe in love. We want to hope that when sex happens its with the right person. But God has a way, of showing us that is wrong. Its called sin.
And we really should take it to heart. We really should see, God called us to holiness. He called us to honor Him in this.
So we live in this society, that every where you turn, sexuality is promoted. And it contributes to so much heartache, even sexual diseases, and truth of the matter is, when a woman gives herself to a man. She disarmed herself.
You see, all is not fair, in love and war. And when a woman gives herself to a man, he has taken that which is holy in the sight of God, and she is no longer worthy to be cherished. Like the saying goes, why buy the cow, when you can get the milk free. And women need to stop this! Stop treating yourself like a piece of meat.
Or giving in, to every man, or any man who can give you nothing. But sadness, loneliness, heartache, and yes shame! Just for a night.
Theres something to be said, about waiting till marriage. There is something to be said, to honor God. There is something to be said, about the mystery, between God, a man, and a woman, when holy matrimony is presented before this sexuality can be uncovered. It makes the foundation stronger. It brings true love, to a man and a woman, who can grow into love, with each passing day. It gives them both something to look back on, and say, we did it Gods way.
I know, that this is true, because I will be honest, every man I met, who did not want to honor me in this way, I walked away from. And when I met my husband, he listened to me, and he agreed. We waited till marriage.
I saw my worth. I saw, I needed God more then ever. I saw I needed to obey God. I saw all of my mistakes, and I saw how life was passing me by. I saw how sin destroys lives. And I saw I needed to do things the way of the Lord. I saw that I had to be strong in this. I saw I could not waver. I saw that my happiness depended on Gods blessings more then ever. And HE does bless.
I think when a woman learns this, repents to God, and sees the error of her ways, she is on the path, to doing it the way of Christ. Not the world. And it makes a difference folks, in the relationship. I know, my husband and I are, evidence of this.
Sin is a natural destroyer. It comes to kill, steal and destroy, and that means your personal happiness. In the spirit, we may not understand everything about it, but when sin is present, the presence of God, is not there. But when God is in the midst of a couple, who do things His way, there is power. In holiness, without sexuality first. There is love. For God is love.
I know this is my secret for a happy marriage. I know it. And I do not judge anybody in this. But I am telling you this, because it works. I tell you this, because our little girls, see all this crap on t.v. and in the movies, that they don’t even try to hide, and it is not the natural thing to do. If our girls learned this, from our women, we might have some integrity, some honor to show for it. It produces holiness, which always brings God into the picture.
I just feel for women in this. I am sad so many do not have happy marriages. Or a mate, who is ordained from God.
Men should treat women with respect. Men should also promote abstinence before marriage. They can live happily ever after too. Dont take that which belongs to God. Before holy matrimony.
But we see so much of this animalistic approach, that says, try it out before you buy it. What a cheap, and degrading approach this is. This does not satisfy the heart. No, not at all because it removes the one true ingredient, and that is God. And God is love.
All I know, is that on earth as it is in heaven. There is a covenant, between God and women, and men. And when sin is present, that covenant will not hold, it will not stand, it breaks. Adultery…..
I write about this in my book. How to have Faith. The title of the chapter is my Secret to true love. And this is it.
Christ will return friends. And He is coming for a church, a body of people that is without spot and blemish.
THAT HE MIGHT PRESENT IT TO HIMSELF A GLORIOUS CHURCH, NOT HAVING SPOT OR WRINKLE, OR ANY SUCH THING, BUT THAT IT SHOULD BE HOLY AND WITHOUT BLEMISH. Ephesians 5:27. KING JAMES.
Read this, and see, if God was in your marriage. It would not have any blemish. Repentance. Cleans the slate.
You know you could start all over again. If you only would see the value of virtue. If you let the Lord build your house. ABSTINENCE.
Being old fashioned, is not a bad thing, it really is a good thing, and sometimes we have to judge ourselves. We have to see the error of our ways. We have to see what works, and what does not. And I am telling you this. Because it does work.
Holiness works, for true love. For a happy marriage. If I could save your marriage, then that means Christ saved you, to find that happiness.
So you met this wonderful guy? Great. But don’t give yourself away. And don’t give what could be the only thing you have to ensure, you can live happily ever after. Let God build your house. Psalm 127:1 KING JAMES.
EXCEPT THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE, THEY LABOR IN VAIN THAT BUILD IT, EXCEPT THE LORD KEEP THE CITY, THE WATCHMEN WAKETH BUT IN VAIN.
God has a plan for your life. Never sell yourself short. When with God you can have the best.
WHO CAN FIND A VIRTUOUS WOMAN? FOR HER PRICE IS FAR ABOVE RUBIES. PROVERBS 31:10 KING JAMES.
Invite me to your ladies group, church, or function, and I would be glad to share with you this truth.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
What a mighty, good, and awesome, God I serve. Sometimes, just a thought, that He gives by the Holy Spirit, touches me, comforts me, and gives me hope. And all based on His promises from my King James Bible.
I don’t care what people think. They don’t live my life. They don’t know what Christ has done for me, how He has forgiven me. Extended mercy. Healed me, and so much more.
The other day someone told me I was “brainwashed” because I believe in Jesus. And I just said, I am forgiven. I am not lost. This person, laughed at me, and I shared Galatians 6:7. To show God is not mocked.
But when I was talking to my Lord, He told me:
“You are not “brainwashed” you are “soul washed”, because you believe in me”.
Thats the difference, and we should all know that. But our minds can be changed as well. By the washing of our souls. We can have the mind of Christ.
I CORINTHIANS 2:16 KJV
FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM? BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.
Enough, of people mocking, or putting down something that is holy and true. I know the difference. And I am so grateful for what Christ has done for me. And because I am soul washed, I will give Him glory, for the rest of life.
Some can deny Him, some can be ashamed, some can be quiet. To each their own. Sadly….
Some may not know. But I do. There is a God, He rules, and reigns. He is mighty and in power. The fool says there is no God. See Psalm 14:1 King James.
I know there is, a true and mighty God.
I will not blame Him for my sins. My heartaches. I know we reap what we sow. From that above scripture.
And I pray to make it up to Him for the rest of my life, for His glory. I highlight this bottom scripture with quotes, to prove, He “WASHED” me from my sins.
I Love you all, I hope you know Christ loves you too.
AND FROM JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, AND THE FIRST BEGOTTEN OF THE DEAD, AND THE PRINCE OF THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. UNTO HIM THAT LOVED US, AND “WASHED” US FROM OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BLOOD, AND HATH MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS UNTO GOD AND HIS FATHER; TO HIM BE GLORY AND DOMINION FOR EVER AND EVER. AMEN. REVELATION 1:5-6.

But let it be the hidden man of the heart in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price I Peter 3:4.
More then ever, it seems that “subliminal” messages, are the norm. But what it reveals, is what is in the heart of the messenger. The giver of the thought….
They are every where. We are inundated with messages, thoughts, inspiration, advertising, and agendas….
Our hearts, are like opened, or closed doors.
And so as a Christian, you want to keep yourself holy in the sight of God. Hard to do in this world we live in. Some things just desensitize us and so you become immune, to many things that may come your way.
Yet, you need to protect your spirit.
I have not heard a message on this, but being led by the Holy Spirit, I agree, and see the importance of this as I write.
Scripture tells us, we worship God in spirit and truth.
God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24.
So what spirits, or spirit, are you led by? For God sees this in truth.
How do we get to that place in holiness, in obedience to what Christ has done for us, as we are cleansed in our spirits, to now be a vessel, an instrument of Christ?
We have to see, we must protect our spirits. By that which we allow. By either reading, watching television, friends that we choose, and yes even in the spiritual entities of the church we attend.
For this very reason, I long for a pure and holy word, so this is why I use a King James bible. But what about the church you attend? Or the voices you listen to? Even in the counsel you ask for?
These “subliminal” messages, you receive, will shape you, will build you, or destroy you. So you need discernment. To know. This is wisdom. To know and see through the intent, and agenda, of the messenger, what is right. What is wrong.
A subliminal message, will hint at the agenda. It will not come to the point, specifically, yet you get the drift of it. You can see, either something is left out, or denied, quietly. Yet it will make you think. It will make you wonder, it will entice you, if you let it. The dictionary, tells us, that it will “influence your mind in such a way that you do not notice.”
It is as if it is a seed, and if you water it, nourish it, it will grow. This can be sin. This can be holiness. You see, it just depends what seed you allow to grow in your spirit. To determine the “fruit” of your tree.
The holy word of God, my King James bible, tells us what Christ said. And He said, do not let any man steal your crown. He said, beware of wolves in sheeps clothing. He said, beware the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy. He told us the enemy is a deceiver. He has paid the price, for our holiness, but are we so naive, like sheep, that we can be led away by a “subliminal” thought?
They are there these thoughts. That come to us.
I just saw one, on a paid commercial on television, where a couple was having a discussion, and it was over a piece of candy. But the difference was she was in bed, with the candy. And I just thought, the subliminal message to any child, would be to think its o.k. to be in bed with candy.
And where are the strong moral, messages? That teach integrity, and honor, and that which is right in the sight of God? They may be gone, in society, but if you are a Christian you have a responsibility to be a message, that does give honor to God.
That is someone, who must live life in honor of God, for what Christ did. So what subliminal message, do people see in you? I do believe we do have to ask that.
Because we already know God does see the intentions of our hearts….
Is your heart open to the messages, that can deceive? Or do you guard your heart….
And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shew thee: for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: delcare all that thou seest to the house of Israel. Ezekiel 40:4.
This message, was paid for in full, by the sacrifice of Christ.
Blessings, my friends, as our hearts ponder on this.
People want faith… But they do not want to be “faithful” to God. Christ was faithful when He suffered and was beaten, and died for our sins. But if we cannot have the desire to obey, even in small things something is wrong.
It is our responsibility to search for Gods truth in that matter. Many of you know to search in a King James Bible. But you do not. You still insist on holding onto a bible that is part truth and part lie.
Until you let go of it, and only use a King James Bible. That part truth and part lie of your own spirit will deceive you. You will not be free. You will not be faithful to God. You will be prisoner to your own false thoughts. With no hope to be free. Only truth can truly set you free! Let the redeemed of The Lord say so!
I grew up on The King James. But when I grew older I used other versions. Those were the darkest times of my life. But when I went back to the King James and only the King James, my spirit was quickened, reconnected with God by Holy scriptures, by the anointing of a true word. Not corrupted by publishers.
This is serious stuff here. Not up for debate or argument. But I tell you and warn you in love because Christ loves you. This is what He did for you to be faithful. What are you going to do to be faithful to Him?
Please read these scriptures slowly. So you do not miss the message. And if anything read them over and over again. To see the clues of what I believe God is warning us in. Don’t miss this warning. See it in His love. As you read it over you will see it.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (Romans 1:16-25 KJV). #kingjamesbible
Look at this scripture again…..
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (Romans 1:25 KJV)
Are you worshipping and yes serving someone (the devil and false prophets, false publishers, false pastors, etc.) who took the bible and revised it with their thoughts?
And turned the holy word of God into a lie? The creature instead of the CREATOR?
THIS IS GOD WARNING US ALL!
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19 KJV)
