There are signs, there are signals, one might see, if they have a friend, that goes to the dark side.
And you grieve for them, because you love them. But you cannot do anything. Because God gives us a choice. Its always a choice.
But when someone, purposely has pride, will not be humble, will not forgive, will not communicate, will believe a lie, and actually fight you, to maintain all that, hate.
Well….all you can do is walk away. When someone, will bring up offenses, over and over again, that is not forgiving.
See, the enemy, has deceived them. And when any of us, purposely disobey God in matters of forgiveness, well, thats giving place to the enemy. Thats going to the dark side.
See, our words do matter. When one makes a commitment, to love God, and love one another, one takes it to heart. You don’t just say it when its convenient, or when its going good. But through all times.
But I was not the one who made the choice to close the case but her. And, to depart from that, is a choice, and its a choice, that brings darkness. God sees.
Scripture says, a friend, loves at all times, not when its convenient. Or when, everything is alright. Love, does love through, the disagreements, the silence, and even, the hate.
See, I know, I love someone, someone, I called a sister, a friend, who for so much showed friendship and loyalty, to me, but when it came down to it, she was not accountable, to her own behavior. I still love this person, but I see, she has stepped into the darkness. And now I just grieve for her.
Because now she is just someone, who wants nothing to do with me, ever again. And I respect that. It does hurt, but I am grateful, I have my armor on, and I will quench those fiery darts from the enemy, that he uses, from my frien-enemy to throw at me.
I am careful, always, to offer forgiveness, because I know myself, that if we are not pleasing God in this, He will not forgive us. And the record shows I did. But she rejected it.
I may have made mistakes, in fact, I know I did, in friendship with this person, I am thinking about. But the grace was not there for me. And I kept seeing it, and yet I offered grace, but she would not. She offered me the silent treatment, closed the case, and let obscenities be spoken about me. That is not love.
So, when you don’t see grace, that is a signal, that this person, has their blinders on. Sad thing is, if you keep your blinders on, and do not obey God, You can miss it. And walk right into the enemies camp, of darkness. And he only comes to kill, steal and destroy. Even friendships, based on prayer, and God. Especially those kind, and that was the kind of friendship we had, at one time.
Sad thing is though, when you see other friends, contribute to that, and take sides, well they have gone to the dark side with that person. I REBUKE THAT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS. I MARK THAT, AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM EITHER.
We pray for people, but we also know, its a choice. You want to pull them out of the fiery flames, but when people silence you, want nothing to do with you.
You go, on, with Christ. Christ said, as His disciples, we were to love one another. He said, that we were to forgive. He said, that love would show we were His disciples. I have tried, but I am done.
I will try and not write about this person, ever again, concerning this person. Because this person, did not care, that she wounded me. But this is how I heal. And I have nothing further to say, you see, I tried. And I know it.
I have so many cards from this person, so many reminders, of a commitment, that she just forgot about. So I may do some purging, of gifts, and reminders.
Make sure you have done all you can in love, and forgiveness, and let the record reflect that. Because there is one. And God sees.
If you can relate to my friend, I implore you to repent to God. I don’t expect an apology at this point, from her, but if I can warn someone, don’t go to the dark side.
BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. JOHN 13:35 KJV.
Blessings, and love,
I believe I have a word for someone.
If you are accused, misunderstood, lied about, then fight. Yes fight. Don’t take it sitting down. Down shut down. Don’t let the devil have his way. Don’t lose your courage. Get your courage, and fight. Don’t fight dirty, but fight. Don’t do something you will regret, but with all that is good, all that is Holy, fight.
For you see, there is an enemy, and he does come to kill, steal and destroy. And he will try and deceive. Thats his character. So if you see that characteristic in yourself. It is time to “submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee.” This is scriptural look it up in a King James. But it must only come by being repentant to God.
Are you guilty by association? Are you keeping company with the devils disciples? Are you so cowardly, that you accept wrong behavior? That can get you in trouble.
The devil will try and make a lie look like truth. He will twist something so much, that people will believe it. He will legally attack you, if you have opened the door to sin.
But if you know better, and this is the key. If you are in truth, and Gods truth, then fight a good fight of faith.
The KJV scripture tells us, that there is a place in hell for the accuser. So you better not be doing the accusing, yourself, because you will reap that. Thats being a false witness.
NOW I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION, AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT. REVELATION 12:10. KJV.
But if you are in the truth, and you have nothing to hide. Then fight, get that courage. Yes, ask God for it, and fight.
You see, I am an opened book. And I have just learned, I don’t play games. I seek the truth. I seek answers. And I am careful. No, I have not always had this wisdom. I have not always been in the truth. I had sins, that hurt me. And I have reaped that. But, when I got honest with God, when I got honest with myself, and I saw the deception. I saw how I have lost so much even in my lifetime, I choose nothing but the truth from God. I totally submit to God, resist the devil, and he must flee. I fight….
But I repented. And there is something, I see in people. That holds them back. They have pride. That pride, makes them weaker, not stronger. It takes their courage away. I don’t have pride. To be honest, my mom, taught me early, to apologize. So I learned to apologize to others, and to God. But pride, will blind you, it will blind others. And people would rather, let someone believe the worse about them, then fight. Because that pride will get in the way.
Giving my pride to God to take away that sin, gives me courage.
I thank God He took my pride away. But what I do have. Is dignity. And I have self-respect. You know you can give that away, by being gracious, as a Christian, but there comes a time, when you have to see who you are in Christ, and fight. And take it back.
Recently, I did that, for my own self. I took back my self respect. Because you can let people step on you, by being silent. Silence is not always golden. Silence can be used to manipulate you, or reject you. It can be used against you. But if you are in truth, you don’t have to take that, and you do not have to be silent.
Because you can lose it, if you get off balance. Get courage.
Courage, to stand up, courage to tell the truth, courage, to fight the good fight, when you are misunderstood, lied about, accused, shows your character. Shows your integrity.
So many do not know how to fight. So many do not know how to get courage. But ask God. Yes, He can fight our battles. But He as the example also teaches us and shows us how to fight. He opens doors, He brings light, He brings truth, but be the vessel that has courage, and fight.
This is why I fight for Gods truth, for the King James bible. I am tired of seeing people, not know truth. I am tired of letting the devil deceive. I have come to a place, in my own walk with Christ, where I see, how sin hurts us more, and more. One tiny sin, that you think is tiny, can poison your spirit. It can take away your sense of truth, and you will gain pride. Pride is a poison.
Yet, I know, we all sin, we all come short of His glory. But I want to be careful in the balance of this. I extend grace because I see that fault in my own. Yet, there is that part of me that will not accept a sin, that could be turned into good. By Christ. His ways are excellence. I fight, using Holy truth, from the King James.
And because I see the corruption of false bibles, where there is part truth, part lie, I see how that poisons the true word of God. There is no anointing, there is no power, or holiness in these false bibles. So I fight it with other holy KJV scriptures, and truth.
Oh I am accused of being a Pharisee, I am accused of being in a cult, I am accused of being legalistic. But, I would rather, have Gods truth, and law, as my guide, then to think grace would just cover my sins. Think again. I fight, by presenting this truth, over, and over again. Its wrong, in His eyes, its disobedience, and it deceives us, exactly what the devil wants to do.
We are tested. By God Himself. And when I think of someone like Job. And I think even how his own friends misunderstood him, and he was judged. I thank God, in his own way he fought. He talked to them.
Communication is everything. People do not use it for truth any more, it seems. It seems, they would rather just shut down, then fight for something good. Even in friendship. If you are misunderstood, speak, but don’t play games. Don’t try and make something right if its wrong. You have to take a good look at yourself, in this matter. And you have to be willing to take it to God. And let Him help you, and work it out.
But you can. Communicate, fight, and get the courage, when you see the injustice.
Pray, and more then anything do not be the problem. Remember, again, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.
But what I am trying to get you to see, no let me rephrase that, what God is trying to get you to see is your heart. Let others see your heart by truth. Don’t shut down. Get some back bone, this is what I mean, when I say fight. The only way you will truly be free, is by Christ, and His truth sets us free.
Open the book. Open your heart. Open yourself to truth. If you are misunderstood, accused, or lied about, even by circumstances. Fight. Fighting does not always mean attacking. It means, you take what you have in truth, and it means if you truly do love. If you truly have “heartfelt intentions” then don’t just sit there, shut down, and let the devil steal whats good from you.
You do not let him steal whats right. If you don’t try, and make it right, by showing your heart to others. Then you are giving place to the enemy. You are not submitting to God,
You only keep the book closed, when…..
You don’t care, and when you don’t care, you open the door to the devil. Its up to you. Show some courage. You might get your self respect back too.
Blessings, and love,
HMMM, before I go on further, I need to clarify what I mean by that. I want it to be totally understood, I do not reject Christ. I do not reject, what He did on that cross for me. I do not reject the thoughts, God has for me. By His plan of salvation. I embrace it with my whole heart, and His truth. I submit to God, and even here, deny the devil. And resist him. I am so very grateful for my salvation. By what Christ did. I will never reject or refuse Christ. I know….I was lost, but now I am found.
But….What do I mean by that statement? That I refuse and reject modern day Christianity?
Well, let me just say, this old girl, has been around the block a few times. The church block. And I love my brothers and sisters in Christ, so let me make that clear.
But, I see, many, rejecting the old ways, and embracing things, that totally distort, and compromise, truth, and what Christ did for us on the cross.
Starting with the “prosperity message” that names it and claims it. Plant a seed, and fill your need. Its all so wrong, in the sight of God. I do not, as a ministry, even dare to ask anyone for a donation, because I never want to distort, or confuse anyone, about who I am in Christ. So, I do not peddle, or hustle the word of God, for money.
Then…. there are all these modern day bibles, that totally corrupt, and compromise Gods words, and truth, and they are not the same definition, by any means.
You don’t think the devil, is happy, and thrilled, that Christians, are not embracing the “Old” words? Think again. There is no power, or anointing in these words, not after God, said, over, and over again, do not change, add, delete, His words.
They are rubber swords. If you read my writings, you know how I feel about that.
Yesterday, I thought, I am going to listen to Christian music. And I turned on my radio, and a radio station, that is nation wide, announced:
“Theres a map, that can tell you how long you can live! We will tell you more stay tuned to….. “
And I just shook my head. And I wrote them a little message, telling them the same thing, as this….What are they into fortune telling now? Do they not see, and know how God feels about such matters?
But there it was announced, for the whole world to hear it. And I thought, there are some baby Christians, who think this radio station, is an authority in such matters of God, yet they are promoting it so to speak…. Gods wrath is on such matters. He hates, entities, that promote other spiritual seeking.
This is an abomination to God, but it is a deception, the enemy uses, because “modern” day Christians, have no fear of God, nor do they understand truth, because these pastors, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, have gone into our churches, and taught a bunch of baloney. That tickle peoples ears, and sugar coat truth, and are a deception.
But I will tell you, and warn you. To open your own eyes. To be aware, of the enemies antics. I will tell you what God says, and that we are to be careful to choose the old ways….
THEY HAVE CORRUPTED THEMSELVES, THEIR SPOT IS NOT THE SPOT OF HIS CHILDREN, THEY ARE A PERVERSE AND CROOKED GENERATION. DO YE THUS REQUITE THE LORD, O FOOLISH PEOPLE, AND UNWISE? IS NOT HE THY FATHER THAT HATH BOUGHT THEE? HATH HE NOT MADE THEE, AND ESTABLISHED THEE? REMEMBER THE DAYS OF OLD, CONSIDER THE YEARS OF MANY GENERATIONS; ASK THY FATHER, AND HE WILL SHOW THEE, THY ELDERS AND THEY WILL TELL THEE. DEUTERONOMY 32:5-7. KJV.
See above how it says, He bought thee? Thats talking about what Christ did for us. He paid, the penalty for our sins. He did not die on the cross, so we could have an excuse to sin. Grace does not cover that! Another stinking thinking thought, that so many have embraced as truth, from these modern teachings. But they think they can reject the law. We need the law!
IT IS TIME FOR THEE, LORD, TO WORK: FOR THEY HAVE MADE VOID THY LAW. PSALMS 119:126. KJV.
There are so many scriptures that talk about the law, but the teachings of Paul, by some Christians have distorted that. In the modern church. The only law we are free from is, the law of sin, and death. Look it up yourselves. But Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. Look that up as well, in your own King James Bible.
There is no fear of God, though, in these matters. Ask yourself, when was the last time, you heard a teaching on the fear of God, that is throughout my bible?
See this, and other examples, of undermining the sovereignty of Christ, just turns me off about the modern church. I could go on. I warn you, but I won’t hit you on the head like some of these fanatics do. Yes, I stand for truth. But I cannot make you see this. Unless you want to look.
And many are content, to just choose a path, that is not the old way. Even though God warns us. He tells us, but so many are deceived, and blind….. That they refuse.
This concerns me for my brothers and sisters. This concerns me, for the future of our children, and generations to come. If Christ does not return soon. Right now, the body of Christ is sick. They are crippled, and do not stand right in the sight of God, with all the crap, they embrace. I hate to say that. But the truth is not coming out, and there are no leaders who I even look up to, in the body of Christ.
I learned to follow Christ, not a leader. Because especially what I see, is so distorted, and corrupted by so many.
My rule of thumb, in searching for a church. Is love there? Is a King Bible used? Are all nations, and people represented in the church…. Is the old ways, taught? Does your pastor, warn you, to repent, even daily? Once does not cover it folks, if you go back to your old ways of sin. Grace again, won’t be there, unless we are humble, in fear of God, repentant. This is what cleans the slate. But these modern day pastors, do not embrace that. Its more like if it feels good, then do it. NO!
Just a thought today…. but may this word remind us all.
THUS SAITH THE LORD, STAND YE IN THE WAYS, AND SEE, AND ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, WHERE IS THE GOOD WAY, AND WALK THEREIN, AND YE SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS, BUT THEY SAID, WE WILL NOT WALK THEREIN. JEREMIAH 6:16. KJV.
This says so much about the modern day church, and Christianity. I cannot sit in a church, that does not embrace these things….even though I long to be a part of a church, and I so miss worship and praise. I cannot compromise myself to the rest of the program, when these things are missing. I cannot.
Well, I refuse, and reject modern day Christianity. In fear of God. Because I will stand before him someday…..
To each their own, is what I say, I won’t hit you on the head with my bible. Like I said….But I will proclaim this. For the glory of God. Modern day Christianity has lost its way. After all Christ did for us, as the way, the truth, and life. Its lost.
In Christ, Elena Ramirez
How can of us, really think we are saints? I know, what keeps me on the straight and narrow path, is when I realize that we all sin, we all fall short of the glory of God. We all do.
When any of us, think we are a saint, we get into dangerous territory. We can get puffed up. Puffed up can lead to pride, and God hates pride.
I don’t claim to be a saint, nor do I want to say I am a sinner as well. I bring it all to the obedience of Christ. In repentance, in humbleness.
Something about looking in His spiritual mirror reminds me there is only one that is perfect, pure, worthy of praise and adoration and that is Christ. Not me.
I know, I have sinned. I pray I do not sin now. I pray I do not ever take advantage of what Christ did for me, on the cross.
But the balance for me, which I pray is pleasing in the sight of God, is to be aware, He is the only one, who can call me a saint. By seeing, I have accepted Him, by repenting. By turning away from my sins, to please Him. And only Him.
Not myself, or others. But Him….
Saint or Sinner, is His call, not mine.
“A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.” Proverbs 11:1 KJV
Not agreeing with every ones opinion, but having enough wisdom, to know, you don’t need to debate it, or argue about it, or try to make someone understand. To respect the differences.
Or even hit them on the head with the truth. Sometimes, you have to go through a few things to get it.
I think I got it….
Thank you Jesus. You see, love, should always be evident. Without trying to make someone feel bad, or to reject them.
We are all on the vine at different places. I may try to show you truth. But I pray to do it with love, and yes respect. Because you are a child of God, as I am.
Yes, live and learn. Christ said, we would be known by the love. “Let the love shine through, by showing respect or if anything courtesy.”
This is one more new motto…..I will carry as a badge of honor, I pray, to His glory.
BUT THANKS BE TO GOD, WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. I CORINTHIANS 15:57. KJV.
