I REFUSE AND REJECT MODERN DAY CHRISTIANITY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


 

DSC_0085.jpgHMMM, 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 ANY OF US THINK WE ARE SAINTS? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


p3110148

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

RESPECT IS…. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0084.jpgRespect Is…

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.

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

 

STOP MISLEADING PEOPLE THAT ONCE SAVED IS ALWAYS SAVED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

I know the principles to have faith. I can help you. Order the book today. Go to this link…. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Note:  

I base this post on a conversation, I had with someone on social media.  Look, there is a misconception about this, and if I can gather lost souls for the Kingdom of God, then Lord use me.  

But people are not getting the truth, people are twisting scriptures to justify this, and people have no fear of God, or sense, to stay away from sin, even because of this wrong teaching “once saved is always saved.”  

They think grace, will cover it.  They think they don’t need the law, to know.  Another misconception.  Do you really think God flip flopped when He gave the law?  Just because Paul talks about not needing the law?  He was talking about the law of sin and death.  That is the only law we are free from.  

See Romans 8:2.  KJV.  FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.

But note how the Psalmist, talks about salvation and the law.  It is needed!

I HAVE LONGED FOR THY SALVATION, O LORD: AND THY LAW IS MY DELIGHT.   Psalms 119:174.

There have been so many lies spoken, and where the bible they use is even a lie.  

There are many scriptures that warn us, THAT ONCE SAVED IS NOT SAVED.  Do your own search on words.  Search the word “blot” and from a King James, the other versions may not have that reference.  A persons name can be blotted out of the lambs book of life.  Even in Revelation 22:18-19 it talks about those who change Gods word, will not enter the Kingdom.  Look at it!

“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.”

Exodus 32:33 KJV

I get weary with those who argue God won’t remove someone’s name from the Lambs Book Of Life. That they think and actually believe they cannot lose their salvation. It’s here folks. I will not argue about Gods holy King James word.

This is why we need just one Holy Bible when we search.  To be on the same page with God.  

Which many Christians think you are judging them, if you tell them this truth, but you are warning them.  Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the “righteous” person.  THAT IS A PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE SAVED BUT THEY ARE DECEIVED.  Look it up in a King James Bible.  

Switch bibles, get a holy anointed King James Bible.  

Please look at the scriptures I based this conversation on.  They are the true last scriptures Christ gave to warn us.  He tells us to be repenting.  HE talks about how we received our salvation.  But we have grown dull, by not knowing the truth.  Many have become neither cold nor hot.  He will spit us out!  If we don’t get it right!  Judgement day is real folks, and we need to get the fear of God, because we all will stand before God.  HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL!  Get scared, and get the fear of God, because your soul could be lost!

Please get the truth, so you truly can be free in Christ.  Repent first, so you can hear the Holy Spirit guide you.  Then lead others truly to Christ.  But don’t fall for that lie that once saved is always saved.  Its not.  

‘I know, I was a backslider.  And by the grace of God I did not die in those years, I was backslidden.  But the only way I got it right was by repenting!  And I still repent.  I still make mistakes.  Which in Gods eyes could be considered sin.  Remember His ways are not always our ways.  This is scriptural. And I want nothing to do with the enemy.  I renounce him, and his deception.  Do not be deceived.  See the truth.  Repent. Renew your vows to Christ. And yes share this.  Be a soul winner.  For Christ.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez 

 

CONVERSATIONS ON ONCE SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED

Yes you are my sister and this is why I warn you in His love. The first thing the Holy Spirit brought to me was to tell you, and others how wrong this teaching is. You have love I see it. But the truth is in His word. Once saved is not always saved. He tells us many will come in His name but they will deceive others with vain words. The wrath of God will be on those who have had no fear of God. This is not taught. We are to fear the one who has power to put our soul in heaven and hell. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. How can that be worked out if one just takes it for granted? That is taking the sacrifice of Christ for granted. His suffering and pain for our sins. NO! Christ told us, many will say Lord, Lord, but HE will say I never knew you. Why? because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. Repentance is the key. Daily repentance even. How many times do we in this world sin? Just by thought or deed. Again I looked at your profile, I saw what Bible you reference. That is not a holy bible. Don’t tell people this! You have love then obey God. Research the KJV scriptures. ASK God to show you. But plz stop misleading people.

“Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
Revelation 3:2-19 KJV

I know, I have written a few things on forgiveness, but I want to take this in a different direction.  And that is learning to release someone in forgiveness, by telling them so.

Have you ever apologized to someone, and you know you made a mistake, and so you apologized, but they did not acknowledge your apology?  They ignored you, or remained silent.  Or still continued blaming you in unforgiveness?

This has happened to me a lot.  And many times, I just walked away sad, because what I really wanted to hear, was I do forgive you.

I learned, to say, I was sorry, at a very, very early age.  I had a strict mom, and I wanted to please her.  Now, I was not a model child by any means.  And I still am not.  Even as a child of God. I make mistakes.  In judgment, I do often in fact.  I pray not to do so, but sometimes, well, I do.  

I pray, God guide me in this, but one thing I have learned, is not to carry any kind of guilt, or condemnation, from myself, or others, or even from God.  So I repent first to God.  Then I apologize to others.  I humble myself, even sometimes, when I am right.  But…

If it does not feel right, I know, as an unction from God to release it.

But there are people, I love, people I admire, people I respect, that may not see it the same way as I do.  

And so what can I do?  But just pray for them myself.

You see, I believe there is a power, in releasing someone in forgiveness.  It takes away pride.  It takes away, any kind of self control in the matter, that can be manipulative, to have someone indebted to you.  I know where that spirit comes, and I get right to the root of it.  It comes from the devil.  

I do not want to be indebted to the enemy in any way.  In even a legal way, where he can accuse me or, try to take my blessings.  I don’t want to be indebted to anyone, nor to myself, in the sense, I want to carry a grudge.  Because if you do not release someone in forgiveness, you will carry a grudge.  

You have not taken the final step, to release that person, from that offense, so you will ponder on it, and you may grow a seed of hate.

How naive we all can be.  By not forgiving someone, or releasing them in forgiveness we have to know what scripture says, and God says if we do not forgive our brother, our friend, etc.  He will not forgive us.  

MATTHEW 6:15 BUT IF YE FORGIVE NOT MEN THEIR TRESPASSES, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES.  

I don’t want that.  I don’t want that hanging over me.  Its strange, but lately, for whatever reason God has been showing me this….  I have been thinking, or dreaming of people.  I have known in the past.  Those that were even family, or friends, that are no longer friends.  They are not in my life.  And I just have had a sense, God was trying to get me to repent, and to forgive them.  So I have.  I may not have thought, I had not forgiven them.  But you know God knows our hearts better then we do. Now, I cannot contact them, but God knows.  

But, I think we can close the circle, when we have a chance. When we have a chance to ask someone to forgive us, or to even find a person, and say…..I forgive you.  Or say.  I am sorry.  

But I really want to impress upon you, to release them by telling them you forgive them.  As they apologize.  And we all know…

More times, people do not apologize.  Even if they don’t ask for it.  Tell them you forgive them.  Why?  Because you don’t want that garbage in you.  That can grow into hate.  Maybe somehow you will remind them, that this is what God wants for us all.  

What a release, it is.  What power, you feel from heaven, above.  A cleansing.  I cannot explain it.  I don’t know all the benefits of it.  But I look at it as someone who was in chains, and now no longer in chains.

And in order to keep those chains off, I keep forgiving.  I keep asking for forgiveness.  From God and others.  In fact I do this daily, because I still make mistakes.  

You see, I actually do care, and I do want to be accountable to God.  To others.  I want to work out my salvation, clear of unforgiveness.  

I think of how many times, an apology would have blessed me, comforted me, soothed me, and even proved love.  And when I did not get it, a wound, may be healed.  Because I know what God says….

But it is always tender to the touch.  I have enough scars about me, to know this to be true.  So grateful for the armor of God, to quench the fiery darts, even when I am not released in forgiveness.  

I hope this blesses you, much Love, Elena Ramirez
