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.

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
