INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THE SPIRIT OF JEALOUSY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Please Note:  I had published this, but deleted it.  I felt the Lord telling me to remove it  but now, I am republishing it.  I have been dealing with things lately, that seem so overwhelming.  But I am trusting God.  I have not been making good decisions, in some ways.  With people, or with trust issues. God knows.  But I am dealing with things spiritually, and it all seems too much for me.  But I am seeking God.  This, is something I hope will help someone.  This I write as an outlet.  Again its not meant to hurt anybody if they read it.  I would never want to do that.  But some things in the spiritual realm cannot be reasoned, or understood.  They need Gods attention.  This is why I serve Him.  Because I cannot always do things, but He can.  

Instructions on how to deal with the spirit of jealousy.  Why do I say one needs instructions on this matter?  Because God dealt with it.  And He is always our example.  Recently, and I will not go into details, I witnessed the spirit of jealousy.  And I knew I had to pray.  I became silent.  I knew it was wrong, but I did not know how to deal with it.  And I prayed fervently for guidance, but also for this person.  God answered me quickly.  With instruction and His counsel. Because I prayed in love.  Because I submitted to God, resisted the devil.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7  KJV.  

I believe this is the instruction and counsel God gave me, so I am sharing it here.   

There Are Two Different Kinds Of Jealousy:  

A good kind, that comes from God.  And an evil kind that comes from the devil:  

HOW ART HOU FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O lucifer, SON OF THE MORNING!  HOW ART THOU CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND, WHICH DIDST WEAKEN THE NATIONS!  FOR THOU HAST SAID IN THINE HEART, I WILL ASCENT INTO HEAVEN, I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD:  I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH.  I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS; I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.  YET THOU SHALT BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL, TO THE SIDES OF THE PIT. ISAIAH 14:12-15  King James.  

So, do you, see the devils jealousy concerning God in this? 

The good kind of jealousy, comes from God in the sense, that He is very jealous, when it comes to anything, or anybody, trying to steal His glory, or in protecting His people.

FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, EVEN A JEALOUS GOD.  DEUTERONOMY 4:24  King James.    

He is fierce, when dealing with this, because He dealt with it, when it came to the devil.  In the beginning.  He dealt with it, and kicked out the devil, from heaven, because He would not allow any kind of strife, that stemmed from jealousy, in His Kingdom.  

And because I know God, and I know His personality in this matter, I understand, why He would not allow that kind of jealousy in His Kingdom, because it does take away His glory.  

So if he does not allow it, neither should we…. 

GOD IS JEALOUS, AND THE LORD REVENGETH; THE LORD REVENGETH AND IS FURIOUS; THE LORD WILL TAKE VENGEANCE ON HIS ADVERSARIES, AND HE RESERVETH WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES.  NAHUM 1:2  KJV.   

The bad kind of jealousy, from the devil, tries to puff itself up.  It can become pride. It tries to steal Gods glory.  It tries to have what God has, by using tactics, that are not of love.  It tries to manipulate, and that is another sign.  Because it tries to control.  Thats not of God.  

It does try and take away His peace.  The peace of God, because the jealousy will always rear up its ugly head like a snake.  You cannot trust jealousy. It does deceive. It does make itself, a form of idolatry, and God will not allow that, because of His great love.  Because He is love.  But if you allow it, by not recognizing it, you are sinning. 

If one studies the attributes of love.  It does not puff itself up, love from God, it does not manipulate, it does not wish, bad, or hate anyone.  It always forgives.  It does not seek to control, or torment, or be a false witness etc.  Lies etc.  It is not counterfeit.

Love from God is not counterfeit, if the principles of God are applied.   But one must see. 

Jealousy, that is not of God, will do that.  It opens doors, spiritually, that are not of God.  So it must be dealt with.  One might not even intend any ill, or evil, but because that spirit is allowed, it brings curses, that are not of God.  It is a spiritual principle.  Like what goes up, comes down.  Well jealousy, brings curses.  The hedge of protection, in pleading the blood of Jesus, and by departing from that, will close those doors to curses.

THE LORD WILL NOT SPARE HIM, BUT THEN THE ANGER OF THE LORD AND HIS JEALOUSY SHALL SMOKE AGAINST THAT MAN, AND ALL THE CURSES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK SHALL LIE UPON HIM, AND THE LORD SHALL BLOT OUT HIS NAME FROM UNDER HEAVEN.  DEUTERONOMY 29:20  KJV.    

Please note, from this verse, salvation can be lost.  The name blotted out of the Book of Life.

One has to look at the perspective, of whether or not they have the jealousy.  Or if they are the object of the jealousy.  And deal with it.  

How does one deal with it?  First of all pray.  Seek Gods wisdom, in this matter. But read on, and receive more understanding.  

So, let us look at it first from the perspective of the person, who has the jealousy.  

The jealousy, will make someone take their eyes off of God, and His promises.  It is a strange form of idolatry.  They may not even realize it, but it is a distraction.  It is making them, look at the person, as a source of their problem.  They may not mean to do that.  Because they may love that person.  But, when they begin to compare their life, to that person, in their attributes, qualifications, things they possess, people in their lives, they will compare.  Jealousy is evident. 

They may see themselves in a very low light, where they diminish their own attributes, or they lose their own self esteem, because they are constantly looking at that person, and it makes them feel inadequate.  They are looking at that person, and not realizing it, taking their eyes off of God.  The devil will use that against them.  

This is not of God. Again, I will repeat this is not of God!  

They inadvertently, begin to see that person, in a negative light, and as much as they may love someone, they cannot help but compare, with jealousy.  

This is not healthy for someone to do this, because the spiritual soul ties, blocks their own blessings.  Blocks their own gifts.  Blocks doors opening for them, because they are looking at someone, with jealousy, and not totally looking at God.  

This I believe is one of the greatest sins, the devil could try to deceive someone in, because he does not want people to be fulfilled, or blessed.  This is again, one of his characteristics, because he was jealous of God.  

I think for the Christian, who does not recognize this spirit, of jealousy, is playing with their salvation.  Not only are they blocking their own personal blessings.  I think they could lose their salvation.  After all, the devil was in heaven, and he got kicked out of heaven, because of jealousy.

When one sees, that, one should distance themselves from the object of jealousy, and run to God.  Run to the throne of God.  Don’t walk.  Run!  Repent.  See the danger of it.  Because it can again, open doors that are not of God.  And one never wants to do that.  

Doors cannot open from God, if this sin, of jealousy is evident.  It will block, the blessings of God.  It is sin.  To be jealous.  

Prayers will not be heard.  He says iniquities separates us, so He will not hear.  So you have to repent and depart from anything that will cause that jealousy.  

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS, HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  

ISAIAH 59:2  KJV

You don’t have to be in someones life, to love them.  And always love.  Even if you love from a distance, with good thoughts.  Prayers. Walk in love. This is how Christ said we would be known by, our love.

But if it is something, that is not dealt with, you have to see, love is the greatest sacrifice, to want the best for someone.  So repent, and do what’s right.  

Leaving someone alone, is a sacrifice….  

As Christ did.  See, He loved us so much, that He paid the penalty of our sins, so we could escape the legal penalty of sin. By giving His life, that was holy to stop the penalty of sin. Without Him, without His sacrifice, the enemy would have a victory, a legal right to attack, but you have your part in avoiding this sin, of jealousy, by recognizing it, departing from it, and submitting to God totally.  Resisting the devil.

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL. I JOHN 3:8 KJV.   

So, if you are the object of someones jealousy…

You have to see, that the best thing, one must do, on your part, is to distance themselves from that person.  Because real love, does not want to make someone unhappy.  Real love, prays for that person.  Because if you really love, someone you don’t want to make someone miserable.  You do not want to hurt them.  By staying in a relationship, or friendship, that constantly makes someone reminded, that you have what they want.  

Love does not torment people.  To torment.  For the sake of tormenting.  That is pure evil.  Love does not provide a way or set up a path, to make someone jealous.  So you have to gain strength, and walk away.  

I have seen jealousy in my own life.  And it has grieved me.  I have not always recognized it.  On my part, or on others.  But, God has given me discernment, and I do understand it.  Now. I do understand, that if it is not dealt with, it can bring unhappiness, block blessings, bring curses, and it is not healthy. 

But I have also learned, that if you love people.  You are happy for them.  You don’t compare your life to theirs.  You don’t compete.  You don’t try to make them unhappy, because you are unhappy.  You don’t try and put a guilt trip on someone, because they are blessed.  

One has to see themselves what they have done, to make their own unhappiness, and not make others a focal point of their own mistakes or sins.    

You have to recognize who God is, and how He dealt with this, and you have to see, its not healthy spiritually.  

When I was younger, perhaps, I was jealous of folks.  It seemed it brought out the worse in me.  To lower my self-esteem.  To always compare.  That was immaturity on my part.  I grew out of it.  Life taught me that.  My own sins, have shown me the error of my ways.  I still grieve because of my sins.  

I did come to a place, though, where I realized in life, there will always be prettier, more blessed, more talented, more richer,  more people, who have things and attributes, gifts, characteristics that I do not have. And I don’t have to have something that does not belong to me.  By striving for it, by jealousy.    

But that does not discount, who God has made me.  I am blessed.  In my own right. Because of His Righteousness.

I don’t have to compare myself to them, because I am actually happy, for people, now when they are blessed. I see the fruit of it.  I have joy, for others.  I don’t compare my life, to their life.  Even in the body of Christ.  

Especially, in the body of Christ.  Because that is not allowed in Gods Kingdom.  And so if you are jealous on earth, I think again, you are playing with your salvation.  

So, I don’t go about, trying, to make them feel bad, for having something I don’t have.  Or have. I recognize, life is a journey.  And I always have to try, to be in that place where I can hear from God, and obey God.  Because His ways, are the way, of truth, and life.  John 14:6  King James.  

I know we all have gifts and callings, that God has placed in our lives, but they cannot be fulfilled, if the sin, of jealousy is there.  It will block the blessings.  And if you love someone, truly someone, you have to let them go, if you see jealousy on your side, or on theirs.  Because that is not love.  That is not love that comes from God.  

It does not mean, it is forever.  It does not mean, it cannot be rectified.  Or even final. Perhaps, the friendship, or relationship, can be healed or mended, by time, by letting God into the situation, totally, by repenting, and by loving enough to let someone be.  

Acknowledging the sin.  Being honest about it.  Letting God bless you, because you are obedient. 

By, literally setting them free.  Like the saying goes;

“If you love someone, or something set them free.  If they belong to you, they will return.”  

If not, well it was not meant to be by God.  

One will see, it was not the will of God.  And folks, one needs to be mindful of that, by not trying to manipulate people or situations, just because you love, or want them in your life.  

In that time, of separation, quietness, God can bless you.  God can open the doors for you.  But you have to let go of the sin of this, to receive the blessing.  

Even here I received this instruction, because I had to be silent.  I could not react to that situation, because I could have damaged it far more then what it was.  I know myself.  I have a sharp tongue. But because I love this person, and more than anything, I love God, I managed self-control, to pray.  To be silent.  

To know that jealousy is a green eyed monster, that is the devil.  

AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND satan, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:  HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.  REVELATION 12:9  King James.  

By letting the person go, you are taking the first step.  Because then you are totally submitting to God, by recognizing the sin of this, and asking Him to change it.  The distraction of that person, is no longer there, and the healing can begin.  For you, and that person. 

If its crossed a line though, where there is abuse, verbal, or physical, though, one should forgive, but one cannot forget.  And in any area of jealousy one should forgive.  But….

It is hard to trust, anybody, when these lines have been crossed.  Into personal space, or spiritual space.  

When one apologizes, it should be, where, one is not reminded of that because forgiveness is there.  One should not apologize and then repeat the offense.  Because then its just lip service.  But it should not be brought up again, to be used against a person.  

So proceed or withdraw with caution.  If one is truly using discernment from God, they will recognize the spirit of jealousy.  It may take some time.  It does not always manifest itself. But if it is there, it will reveal itself, sooner or later.  Even in the strangest of conditions.  I have seen it time, and time again. 

If someone tells you, they are jealous.  Of you, or who you are. Believe them.  See, you cannot confuse, that for being happy for someone because it comes from a place of comparing.  And that is not healthy spiritually, for either party.  

SUFFER NOT THY MOUTH TO CAUSE THY FLESH TO SIN; NEITHER SAY THOU BEFORE THE ANGEL, THAT IT WAS AN ERROR:  WHEREFORE SHOULD GOD BE ANGRY AT THY VOICE, AND DESTROY THE WORK OF THINE HANDS.  ECCLESIASTES 5:6.  KJV.  

In this scripture I see, admitting the truth in this, not denying the jealousy, will be the beginning to set someone free.   

Don’t ever take someones weakness, in matter like this, and use it.  Against them.  Don’t flaunt your attributes, or whatever it is, that person, is struggling with, and try to make them feel inadequate.  Because they are jealous. I think God would and could punish someone, for trying to use that against them.  Don’t play with these spiritual matters.  

Fear God.  I do. 

Thats why I think one should depart from situations like that.

SO WILL I MAKE MY FURY TOWARD THEE TO REST, AND MY JEALOUSY SHALL DEPART FROM THEE, AND I WILL BE QUIET, AND WILL BE NO MORE ANGRY.  EZEKIEL 16:42  KJV.  

Just remember this, that kind of jealousy is not of God.  

Any child of God, who wants God to bless them, or that person, they love, should depart.  So the devil can depart. And pray, always constantly pray for someone.  See the enemy, does come to kill, steal and destroy.  Don’t give him a legal right to attack you, or someone else.  

And because I recently seen this, and though, I love this person dearly, it has made me pray for this person, more fervently, because I love this person, and I would never want to make this person unhappy, or sorrowful, by comparing myself to this person, or this person, to compare herself to me.  I want this person, happy, blessed, fulfilled, in Christ.  And as much as it grieves me to let this person go, I will, so the enemy will not have any place in this matter.  

It just is not healthy, for myself, as well, spiritually, to think my happiness would make them miserable, so I would rather, just walk away, and see if God can heal this.  Because if I don’t… Every time, I would see this person, I would think is this person o.k. now, or am I still a thorn in this persons side?  For this person to be jealous.  I never want to be used by the enemy, to bring jealousy, or unhappiness to anyone.  Thats not who I am.  In Christ. 

I know God always uses things I go through, to help others, and I hope it helps.  This is why I write.  I am just someone who can and will be obedient to God, to share truth.  And truth, brings light.

This is my way of trying to heal my own heart.  My own sadness.  By writing about this.  It is not meant to hurt anybody.  Or to make someone feel bad.  This is a deep rooted matter, that can hurt any of us.  I am just trying to be brave enough, to express this so it can help others.  And yes again, myself. For healing spiritually. 

Get a King James bible.  Look up scriptures on jealousy, understand Gods perspective in this, and let this be your guide.  Understand how God saw jealousy, and be healed.  Things can heal, but you always have your part. 

Hope this helps someone.  God bless you, always come from a place of repentance, and a turning away of any sin, so you can have Gods love rest on you.  

So jealousy can depart.

HOW TO DISTINGUISH THE SPIRIT OF “DELUSION” ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Have you ever met someone, or found within yourself that spirit of delusion?  The spirit, that thinks it’s right.  That is so argumentative, and determined because frankly, they believe what they see, say, and believe.  But it’s wrong.  And its hard for that person to admit, or to see, for whatever reason….

That if you presented truth to them, they would reject it.  The facts, may be quite evident.  But they cannot distinguish between black or white.  They will call evil good, and good evil.  It does not make sense.

So one can conclude, that they are delusional. 

Well that comes from a lie.  The father of lies, the enemy.  The devil. And it is quite sad, when one knows truth, but one does see, folks, who would rather believe the lie.  Would rather, pursue something, but it is a falsehood.

And that’s always the goal of the enemy.  To deceive.  To make something look like a counterfeit.  To fool someone totally.  And that is a spirit of delusion.

The King James scriptures, here, talk about it.

REMEMBER YE NOT, THAT, WHEN I WAS YET WITH YOU, I TOLD YOU THESE THINGS?  AND NOW YE KNOW WHAT WITHOLDETH THAT HE MIGHT BE REVEALED IN HIS TIME.  

FOR THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY, DOTH ALREADY WORK; ONLY HE WHO NOW LETTETH WILL LET, UNTIL HE BE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY.  

AND THEN SHALL THAT WICKED BE REVEALED, WHOM THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH, AND SHALL DESTROY WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING:  

EVEN HIM, WHOSE COMING IS AFTER THE WORKING OF satan WITH ALL POWER AND SIGNS AND LYING WONDERS,  AND WITH ALL DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH;

BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.  

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE:  THAT THEY ALL MIGHT BE DAMNED WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, BUT HAD PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.  

II THESSALONIANS 2:5-12 KING JAMES.  

Gee that last verse scares me, as it should you.  Because one is damned, who does not believe the truth, and who has pleasure in unrighteousness.  Yes, it is a spirit of delusion, if you rejoice in unrighteousness.  Only you and God can answer that.  The devil will not tell you that truth, because again, he wants to deceive you.

IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST, WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM.  II CORINTHIANS 4:4  KJV.  

So be careful who you ask…..

And you really have to understand the root of it.  Because it can come from many sources.  It could be generational.  It could be because someone did not pursue truth, to begin with.  It could be, someone was taught to lie, to be deceptive, so that the spirit of delusion came to that person very easily.  But it always comes from denying God, and His truth, His gospel.

Again, are you using a King James?  Thats the first step to defeating the spirit of delusion.  

So, one must understand, it is very manipulative.  It is very controlling, the spirit of delusion.

In any event, it does steal from a persons soul, it does deceive, and it does cripple a person spiritually, so they cannot have real discernment, unless they make it right with God.  They cannot see clearly, because the spirit of delusion, clouds their thinking…

But one can be cured, or healed from that spirit of delusion, to see the truth.

By repentance.  By acknowledging one may have that spirit of delusion.  Because frankly, they do not have the mind of Christ in matters.  And only Christ, can deliver someone.  Yet, it also takes wisdom, from God, to have discernment in such matters.  So one must repent, and accept Christ as Lord and savior.  To be delivered.  One must desire, and love truth.  Gods truth.  Yearn for it, so one will not be consumed by the lie, and perish.

I guess, I see it, because I have had poor judgement in the past.  I had it, when I was not a true Christian.  Sure, I believed in God, but I did not know his truth, like I do now, and I was very prone to being deceived.  I don’t think that spirit of delusion left me, until, I totally submitted to God, resisted the enemy, and he left.  I had to see the error of my own ways.  Letting go of pride, to think, I could do it my way…..

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.  I CORINTHIANS 2:16  KJV.  

So, in some matters, I suppose, I was delusional, especially, in my youth.  because I was not in the truth.  Experience in life, can show you the fruit of that.  When you are not in the truth, of who God is, and what He expects, its very easy, to have a spirit of delusion.

But now, I am a little bit more wiser.  A lot more submissive to God, totally, in fact, as I state it here.  Because I fear God.  And fear of God, can keep you out of trouble.  Not only spiritually, but in life.

I understand His commandments, and law.  I am not perfect.  I know, I can sin, and fall short of His glory, but I don’t take grace for granted.  But this is a gift He gives in understanding.  It’s not me, its Him, because I let Him rule my spirit, in His truth.  And I am very aware, to not try and sin, or to do something that is morally wrong, or deceptive.  I always pray for discernment, so I will not have a spirit of delusion.  I understand one does reap what they sow.  And no, its not karma.  Quit saying that, if you do, because its not King James scriptural.

Have you ever met someone, and you got good or bad vibes from them?  Well thats your gut instinct.  Also known by the Holy spirit.  If you have submitted to God.  But if it is led by God, you will see the good.  But also understand what is evil, and not good, according to His truth, a King James bible.

If the spirit is bad, it will seek company with those who likely, do not know God, and do things that are quite questionable.  Because in retrospect, their spirit is led by the devil.  It will blind someones good judgment, to believe a lie about someone.  

But you always have to see, is there something there, that could be blocking discernment or understanding, to give the spirit of delusion?  

God tells us…

 I ALSO WILL CHOOSE THEIR DELUSIONS, AND WILL BRING THEIR FEARS UPON THEM; BECAUSE WHEN I CALLED, NONE DID ANSWER; WHEN I SPAKE, THEY DID NOT HEAR:  BUT THEY DID EVIL BEFORE MINE EYES, AND CHOSE THAT IN WHICH I DELIGHTED NOT.  ISAIAH 66:4  KING JAMES.  

Like the saying goes, misery, loves company.  And to be delusional, is frankly a miserable state of mind, to be in.  One needs the mind of Christ.

I am scratching the surface, here, but you have to understand, how important it is to be in Gods truth.  Or you can be deceived.  

Again, folks, I highly recommend a King James bible.  You cannot be receiving the mind of Christ, if something you are using, is counterfeit, because it has been corrupted.  Get in there, and search, and search.  Keep praying, and repenting, till you see the truth.  And you will.  Then you will understand, the spirit of delusion.

You can yourself, be delusional.  But one must understand, it is a principle, God has placed.  And if one is not right with God, well they will have a spirit of delusion.

Hope this helps someone.  And just remember, if you see someone who is delusional, who does believe a lie.  Don’t argue with them.  Let them go.  Don’t get caught up in their strife.  There is a strange spirit in that.  

Just let them be….sure pray for them.  But walk away. 

In Christ, totally, and His love,

Elena Ramirez

“ASK YOURSELF HOW WILL THE DEVIL DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD?” By Christian author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2372.jpeg

King James Bible scripture says;

AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:  HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.” Revelation 12:9  King James.  

Look at that scripture.  It tells us the devil deceived the whole world.  How did he do that?  It tells us he is in the earth.  And his evil angels.  

I always try to get to the root of things.  That’s how God made me.  But I always go to His holy King James word, and connect the dots.  Here a Holy scripture, there, another Holy scripture, and it all makes sense.  I get understanding.  I get discernment.

HEAR; FOR I WILL SPEAK OF EXCELLENT THINGS; AND THE OPENING OF MY LIPS SHALL BE RIGHT THINGS.  FOR MY MOUTH SHALL SPEAK TRUTH; AND WICKEDNESS IS AN ABOMINATION TO MY LIPS.  ALL THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH ARE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS; THERE IS NOTHING FORWARD OR PERVERSE IN THEM.  THEY ARE ALL PLAIN TO HIM THAT UNDERSTANDETH, AND RIGHT TO THEM THAT FIND KNOWLEDGE.  RECEIVE MY INSTRUCTION, AND NOT SILVER; AND KNOWLEDGE RATHER THAN CHOICE GOLD.  FOR WISDOM IS BETTER THAN RUBIES; AND ALL THE THINGS THAT MAY BE DESIRED ARE NOT TO BE COMPARED TO IT.  I WISDOM DWELL WITH PRUDENCE, AND FIND OUT KNOWLEDGE OF WITTY INVENTIONS.  THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS TO HATE EVIL:  PRIDE AND ARROGANCY, AND THE EVIL WAY, AND THE FROWARD MOUTH, DO I HATE.  COUNSEL IS MINE, AND SOUND WISDOM:  I AM UNDERSTANDING; I HAVE STRENGTH.  BY ME KINGS REIGN, AND PRINCES DECREE JUSTICE.  PROVERBS 8:6-16 KING JAMES.  

Because of what God speaks, that which is holy and good, glory to God, I can or you can get that.  But I only get that if I am in Holy King James word.  Believe me, I have been in corrupt word, and I now know the difference.  And I will elaborate more on this and the above scriptures. 

But back to my question.  

“ASK YOURSELF HOW WILL THE DEVIL DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD?”

You cannot be oblivious, to this truth.  Even if you want to deny God, or His existence.  Because there is good and evil in this earth.  I think most of us see the evil in the earth, on a daily basis, and well, we can become desensitized.  We can get cold.  

We can even deny it.  Put our heads in the sand, and turn off.  Put blinders on.  Exactly what the devil wants you to do. But you cannot, not if you want to truly get knowledge or understanding.  

More than anything if you want to please God.  And it is a beautiful thing to want to please Him.  It does so much for the soul.  I love my Lord, but its been a journey and a process, but every day He shows me more, and more of who He is.  So yes, I do want to see His good.  I want to please Him.  

So, you have to see the good, you have to see God, if you want that knowledge or understanding, that can become wisdom.  I seek it, I think most of us want that.  

But I don’t want to get it from seeking entities, or things that are not of God, so lets go back to the beginning.  In fact, I repent, when I have seen things that are not of Him, that could teach me evil.  I never want to know how to do evil.  But thats deception, if you do want that.  

Lets go back where the devil “deceived” Adam and Eve.  He made them believe a lie.  He tricked them!  Let’s go back to where God, “commanded” Adam and Eve, not to eat from the “tree of knowledge of good and evil, not to eat from it.”

AND THE LORD COMMANDED THE MAN, SAYING OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN THOU MAYEST FREELY EAT:  BUT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, THOU SHALT NOT EAT OF IT:  FOR IN THE DAY THAT THOU EATEST THEREOF THOU SHALT SURELY DIE.  GENESIS 2:16:17  KJV.  

We do live in world, where the devil deceives people daily.  Tricks them.  We see it in the news.  We see it in some folks, and their lives.  We see it by the fruit.  Christ told us we would know folks, by their fruit.  Whether its good or evil.  We see it.  

But lets look at it according to Holy King James scripture, lets see how the devil, tricked Eve first with a lie.  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTIL THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEA HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN? Genesis 3:1.  King James.

O.k. stop look at that scripture really carefully.  She had not even addressed him and he tricked her immediately with a question.  And yet, the devil knew what God had said, but the devil tested her, to see, what she would say.  And do. In this, we see, he immediately undermined what God said.  He made it a question, and you know what I will just be blunt.  If you or I question what God says, we are already in a position to be deceived, by the devil.  And that covers everything God says.  

See we are tested daily.  Even if you have given your heart to Christ. Do we have faith, like God tells us?  Do we trust Him?  Do we obey Him?  Even in the word we use?  Do we walk in love?  Do we steal?  Do we commit adultery for the sake of love.  But its unholy love?  Yet we are commanded not to do that?  I could go on, and on.  But it all turns into the same thing.  Sin.  

Disobedience to God, and that’s exactly what the devil wants to do.  Deceive you.  Deceive you, so you don’t get your crown when you stand before God.  After you leave this earth.  Sad that atheists dismiss, God, but that just shows the foolishness of those who are deceived so you won’t even believe in God.  

Deceive you, so you won’t obey God.  Deceive you, so you will disobey.  Deceive you, so he can take the glory from God.  The glory!  

And God will not let that happen.  Because if you read the whole Bible, you know God will lock that ugly old devil up.  And God will not give His glory to anyone.  This is why I follow God, and not man, in even what I seek to know from God.  By the Holy Spirit. 

But right now, he is on this earth, doing his dirty deeds, and you have to ask yourself.  Are you part of the world, thats being deceived by the devil?  By even the word you are using, when God commands us, not to change it, add to it, or delete it?  Read Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19.  King James.

Yet, all these per-perversions of fake bibles, do that.  And thats why we are not all on the same page.  With God.  Thats why, the enemy, deceives us.  We don’t have the anointing, the unity, that we should right now.  

If we all would heed what God says.  And obey Him, by using the same Bible, there would be unity. We would see miracles.  We would speak and know the word.  We would see the devil shutting up.  But Christians don’t know His word.  Its sad to see, but they don’t.  Many do not.  

But how can there be, unity or understanding with wisdom, when there is so much confusion, as to what the word says?  We would have the power, and strength, of a holy Bible, if we just saw this.  From healings, to wisdom, to guidance, to knowing exactly what God wants.  

If we were on the same page with God in a King James.  

So…. When I say, I don’t want knowledge from other entities, I think about why God commanded them, not to eat from that tree.  Again, I try to get to the root of it.

Because He wanted to protect you and me, from spiritual matters that were not from Him.  He wanted us to obey just Him.  And if only they had gone to God, of course, He would have confirmed, the truth.  And the devil, would not have deceived any of us.  The curse, would not have happened.  By sin, by disobedience.

So you gotta wake up.  Because now, that we are being tested. You can be on the same page with God.  You can find, understanding and knowledge, to obtain wisdom.

You have to see, even in the word you use, you have to ask yourself, are you sinning?  Is the devil deceiving you? By using an unholy bible?  Are you deceived?  Getting part truth, but part lie, something the devil has put his hands to?  He is the deceiver the one who will confuse.  You are not confused, when you know Gods truth.  

You don’t question it.  You just believe when your in the right word.  It does something to your faith.  My faith is stronger then ever.  You just submit to God. Whenever the questions arise, about who God is, or why he does what he does, is because the devil always wants to confuse you.  Deceive you.  I know this. 

If you don’t know truth, exactly by what God says to begin with, and you use something that will corrupt your soul, mind, etc.  Because it is corrupted, you will be deceived by the devil.  

Short testimony, when God brought this truth to me, and my spiritual eyes were opened, about how corrupt other bibles are, my spiritual eyes were opened, and I repented.  Yes, for being fooled by the devil.  But no more.  My sword is sharp.  I know what God says.  And if I don’t, I know where to look.  I get a key word, and search in my King James bible, or bible app. and I look for truth.  I am actually hungry for Gods word.  Because it feeds me, when I find it.  It inspires me.  Comforts me. Because I then know what my Lord says.

When this was revealed to me, I actually dreamed I had taken a spiritual bath in light.  When we don’t obey God, there will be darkness.  There will be confusion.  There will be no power.  I walk in His power, in His love, and light, more than ever. 

Now do you understand how the devil deceives the whole world? And are you a part of that because you don’t use a King James bible?

Oh, and just one more thing, I thought I would add here, since there is a lot of controversy over our country right now.  As a Christian, do you support Trump?  I hope you do because if you look at my scripture in Proverbs, that I use as an illustration for knowledge and understanding. it says God put him in office.  

Don’t go against that, or the devil will deceive you in that too.  But thats another subject….maybe I will write about it, but maybe I won’t.  It just depends on what God gives me as an assignment.  

BY ME KINGS REIGN, AND PRINCES DECREE JUSTICE.  PROVERBS 8:6-15 KING JAMES.  

In Christ, and His love, I warn you all. For that matter, I remind myself, not to be deceived.

WHEN THE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT KNOW THEY ARE SINNING BY AN AGENDA ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1106I like to get to the root of things.  I may see the symptom of this, or that, or the other, but I always wonder, what caused this?  So I try to search and see what is the root of that matter.  

Sometimes, I do that with communicating as well, I go straight to the source, and usually that leads me straight to what God says, not what man says.  

So I ask you, as a Christian, are you caught up in an agenda, that may cause you to sin?  I am asking you to look at the root of why you support an agenda.  

I seem to see that a lot lately.  In political matters as well, and well I will save that conversation for another time perhaps.  

But, I do notice that people, tend to get passionate about something, and everything may point in one direction, but is that where it started?

See, the enemy is very deceitful.  And he may bring an “agenda” to your attention, and you may see something, that you think is right, and you may begin to become involved in it.  

But as a Christian, you are commanded to obey God, so you need to pray for discernment.  And you are to be very careful, because the enemy, will use people, even people, you respected or honored, to deceive you.  Because they were deceived as well.  Or even people in the body of Christ.  

I learned a long time ago, to avoid this.  Follow Christ.  Not people.  They can become a form of idolatry, that the enemy will use, to deceive you.  I don’t follow people.  I don’t support anyone, and I am careful, even if I like some in the body of Christ.  

Because all honor, glory, and praise should go to God, not people!  

Recently, I saw a prominent pastor, be very passionate about a matter, and he seemed to speak some truth about the matter, but what really got my “red flag” up, was that he became disloyal to someone, he had supported.  He suddenly became very outspoken, yet, he seemed to discount, other indicators, of why, it was happening.  Even in legal matters.  

It all of a sudden, became about us.  And he used the body of Christ, as us.  And when ever, I see, any kind of statement, that dismisses, Christ, and it becomes, “self” I see the enemies hand in this.  Self, is prideful, it is jealous, and it is disobedient to God.  You have to get to the root of it, and see the symptoms that are symbolic, in some matters.  

He got caught up in an agenda.

And agendas, can be good, but if there are indicators, that go against what God says, then you need to be careful.  

Look at the fruit.  You will know them, by their fruit.  

MATTHEW 7:20  KING JAMES

WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

And I think this is why I am writing about this today.  I saw his fruit.

Is there an “agenda” that you see, that you support, that you even think is right, but you then become a hater?  Do you start defending an agenda, and throw away, what Christ says?  Like loving one another?  Do you get so caught up in it, that you get on the wrong side, and begin fighting?  Against other Christians, brothers and sisters?  Do you become an accuser?  The Bible tells us there is a place in hell for the accuser.  Read Revelation 12:10 from a King James.  

Now, I know, there are wolves in sheeps clothing, and I know, that there are deceivers, so you do need to be careful.  And many say they are Christians, but when I see, hate, or I see, hypocrisy, or lies, I speak up.  Or I see a tendency, to twist scripture.  Or only pick some of the word, and not all of it. I mark, them, and have nothing to do with anyone, who wants to find a loop hole, or dismiss what God says.  

Because the goal, of the enemy is to trip you, and steal your crown.  And don’t fool yourself, salvation can be lost.  If sin, is un-repented.  

But, you need to see what God says first.  Don’t play, with sin, and think there is grace.  God will judge. 

I have to do a check, on myself, now and then, because I will be honest, I have made mistakes in judgement.  

But I always have to look at the fruit.  At myself, and with others.  And agendas, can be nice, but if there are “hypocritical” tendencies, from someone, who has an agenda, and they try to bring it to your attention, I am like, “Ugh No!” thats not what my King James Bible says.  

I become very literal in some matters.  Is money involved? Because money, can be the root of evil. Is that why you like the agenda?  There are check point questions you need to ask yourself about any agenda.  

And the enemy will even use the word of God against someone, to trip them, into an agenda.  Don’t fall for it.  Especially, if they do not practice, what they preach.  Thats so hypocritical.  They say one thing, but yet, do not honor something else, thats related.  You have to see the hypocrisy.  And then search the King James bible yourself.  If you are wrong, admit it. 

I truly believe, now is a time, to pray, to seek the truth, from our King James Bibles, see what God says on the matter, and look at the fruit.  Stop, look, and listen.  And if you have to pull back.  Don’t get involved.  

Is an agenda, worth, losing your soul over?  No.  

Just be careful, “Just my thoughts,” on this matter.  

In Christ’s love, Elena Ramirez 

PICKING APART JOYCE MEYERS THOUGHTS ON TATTOOS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3640.jpgPicking Apart Joyce Meyers Thoughts on Tattoos…
By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Joyce Meyer, is a prominent leader, in the world. Concerning matters of religion. As a Christian, that she claims to be, I find her thoughts, very disturbing.

I was once one of those who looked to her, as inspiration, because she found Christ. But if she found Him, her thoughts, show, she departed from Him. They show she has departed from His law, and they show she promotes hate, to others who do not agree with her. I base this on the following video:  And if by some chance it mysteriously disappears, look it up on youtube.  Joyce’s thoughts on tattoos.

I know she is well liked. I know, this may anger, or upset those that follow her, but I am to please God, not man, or any person, and so are you!

The King James scriptures tells us that there will be those, that are blind, and leading the blind. And this describes her exactly.

LET THEM ALONE; THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND. AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH. MATTHEW 15:14 KJV.

Joyce Meyer, starts her sermon, in this video, on the comparison between holiness, and legalism.

This is what Gods word, says about holiness. She does not use this scripture, but I will so you can see what the King James says about holiness.

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”
Isaiah 35:8 KJV

Her thought, right away, attacks religious people. Because they know having a tattoo is not accepted in the scriptures. She stereo types those that want to obey God. That know truth, that see the error of doing some things. And she calls it “legalism.”

She refers to Isaiah 44:5 and makes reference that its o.k. to have a tattoo, basically because God did it. Which is wrong, the scripture does not promote marking of the skin, it talks about just writing. Subscribing.

She says that it says; That it is tattooed; “I belong to the Lord”. It does not say that. See it from a Holy King James bible. But this is what it says:

“One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.”
Isaiah 44:5 KJV

It does not say tattoo, and she says it does. Please see this.

Again, she makes a reference, that God is promoting it, because He tattooed your name on his hand. The scripture does not say that. It says “graven” How can anybody compare how God writes?

BEHOLD I HAVE GRAVEN THEE UPON THE PALMS OF MY HANDS; THY WALLS ARE CONTINUALLY BEFORE ME.  ISAIAH 49:16  KJV.  

And to mock, what it says from one scripture to the next, is very dangerous. When she gives an example of God putting earrings, on one, group, but getting angry with the next. Where is the fear of God? To see, His ways are not our ways. She is judging God Himself, in His motives.

Leviticus 20:28 is a reference she gives, its not there. That scripture does not exist in my King James bible. Check. Look it up, listen to the video very carefully. Its not there as a point of reference. About making marks for the dead.  That she gives.

That scripture reference is not specific to tattoos, but Leviticus 19:28 is:

“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”
Leviticus 19:28 KJV

A tattoo is a mark on the flesh.

I think what bothers me so very, very much, is first of all she is not using a Holy Bible. As a teacher, as a so called pastor of the word of God, her word is corrupt. And I won’t debate it, but her scripture references, are from bibles, that have been changed. Corrupted. She uses references of scripture, but they are not from the King James. As she quotes scripture.  And if this does not show anybody, how wrong it is to use different bibles, then I don’t know what to say to you.

She admits, she picks what she wants, and leaves what she wants out of scripture. Listen to the video. She says it quickly but she admits she does that. And I am paraphrasing her, When she says: “we pick and choose what we want and leave out what we want.” Well she does, she leaves out truth, Gods truth.

She promotes getting a tattoo, and also promotes pushing “religious” people off the cliff. She states she is on the verge of getting a tattoo, and actually defying what Leviticus 19:28 states.

But to promote throwing people off of a cliff, and get it over with….That’s evil. That’s not love. To make religious demons mad? Who gave her that authority? It’s just wrong folks.

Does she not know her words are recorded in the book of life?  It is for all of us.  We will be judged.

The subliminal message, in there is to attack others, who do not think or believe like she does. And again, that is just pure evil. Christ told us, in John 13:34-35, that we would be known by the love we have for one another. This is what my King James bible says:

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
John 13:34-35 KJV

The whole motive of her subliminal message is to disobey God. To make herself the example to have pretty clothes, make up, and a tattoo.

In the King James scriptures it talks about vanity. And if she gets a tattoo, she is using herself for you to be disobedient in that. Because she is making herself even here in the video an example.

“And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.”
2 Kings 17:15 KJV

She talks about Laughing, well, the scripture says, it is better to be sorrowful. Then to have laughter. She talks about people and that they want to see you happy? Well, food for thought…What about what God wants? See, you need to see that, she totally disregards the incentive to try and please God. And that’s just wrong.

“Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.”
Ecclesiastes 7:3 KJV

Her whole message, really does not promote, drawing close to God. To repent. To obey God, and His laws. To see the error of ones ways. It actually is defiant. Prideful, to say one’s ways, are right, and there is a great danger to that. Because God is not mocked.

See we really cannot have joy, or peace, if we are wicked. Or more importantly as God has called us, to be in holiness.  There is no holiness, without Gods law.  Without obedience.  Without repentance.  And a changing of ways.  No where does she call those to repent.  And how can we please God, to be forgiven without repentance?  Or grow?

A true sense of soul searching, with repentance, a hunger for God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, to please Him, is the only one who can do that.

To even take her thoughts to heart, is so disturbing to me, because I have learned the hard way to get right with God, one needs to take His laws to heart.

Now the concept between religion, and relationship with Christ is this. Religion is rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, and groups. But if you are being legal, which God has given us His law, to follow, that is relationship. We can only have relationship with Christ, when we repent, obey God, and pray, and seek Him in that relationship. Pleasing God. Avoiding religion, well what she promotes, is Joyce Meyers religion.

I think what also bothers me, and that’s why I am writing about it, is basically she is promoting, dismissing the law, because it makes one act in legalism. And that’s like saying, I am right, you are wrong, to God Himself, and it’s a turn off to be obedient to God.

She challenges the “law” And that’s dangerous, these are Gods laws. He is legal. And holiness cannot be obtained, unless we follow Gods laws. So again, call me legal. Because I love His law. I see that it protects me. I see, that by trying, and yes I fail, but I see, that if I attempt to obey Him, He will extend grace. But you cannot disregard the law.

The thought, many Christians have is that the law, is abolished. That we are free from the law. God did not flip flop from the Old Testament, to the New Testament. He does not change. We do. The only law we are free from, is the law of sin and death. Not Gods commandments.

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:2 KJV

There are many scriptures that attest to being legal with God. And that if we even keep Gods law, we are happy.

PROVERBS 29:18 King James
WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.

You know, I want to be happy in God’s law, so call me legalistic.

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:8 KJV)

He tells us, not to forsake His law. So that means if you want to please God, you get legalistic. Because He is the example to follow.

For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. (Proverbs 4:2 KJV)

The doctrine she teaches us, warns us according to King James scripture, is don’t follow people like that. I will not follow Joyce Meyers.  I follow Christ.  She is a terrible role model for Christ.  And one should never follow a person any way.

No matter what, they propose.  We are to follow Christ.  This is why you need to get the truth yourself.  Get a King James bible, and learn.  What Gods laws are, yourself.  Thats the only way you will grow.

And that is going to upset  some, here, but I state it because its wrong.

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 KJV)

I don’t judge anybody that might have a tattoo, I really don’t. I have met some very nice people who have tattoos, even family members. But if we really want to please God, we know what the scripture says.

We know, if we want to clean the slate, we repent. God won’t hold it against you, if you repent. But the direction she takes in this, is very self-serving. And that comes from hell itself. The devil was always about the devil. Self.

What she proposes… is that It is not humble, it is not remorseful, to know and admit, the error of one making a mistake, in even getting a tattoo. The scriptures, when they are truth, will bring light, to help us see the error of our ways. But I see nothing like that, from her message.

And its sad. I don’t judge her, but I am called to warn, even the righteous. Who think this is right.

Its not right folks, its wrong. And if you think I am judging. Read Ezekiel 33 from a King James it says we are to warn. I am warning here. I am loving my brothers and sisters in Christ, so they know the difference. Love warns. You would too, if you saw someone near the fire. The fire of hell itself.  If you knew the truth. Her thoughts are very disturbing.

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: (Proverbs 6:23 KJV

In conclusion, knowing, that the truth sets us and let the redeemed of the Lord say so. I have been redeemed, so I say so.

I may very well get challenged by some of you, who support her, love her, and you know what you need to do, is pray for her.  Arguing with me, will not resolve this.  I know what the Holy Scriptures says.

But I won’t debate or argue about this with anybody.  I will ignore comments on this.  I know that I just have to write this.  My motive is to please God.  And if it really helps someone to see the truth, then praise be to God.  I praise God anyway…

Thank you.

PSALMS 107:20 KING JAMES

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  

JOHN 8:32  KJV.  

AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.

Just ask yourself, with what I have shared, and what you can see, from the video yourself, why would anyone promote to you, that you disobey God?  Look at the fruit folks, this is how you will know them.  

Matthew 7:20  WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

Feel free to share this link you might just open someones eyes, to truth.

WHY IS FAVOR DECEITFUL? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

Why Is Favor Deceitful?  By Christian Author Elena Ramirez 

FAVOR IS DECEITFUL, AND BEAUTY IS VAIN:  BUT A WOMAN THAT FEARETH THE LORD, SHE SHALL BE PRAISED.  Proverbs 31:30.  KJV.  

I have to say first, that I fear God.  I have learned that, in my journey of life.  I know there are consequences to sin.  I know, that I have reaped what I have sowed, many times.   So I fear God.  I fear the one, who can part heaven and earth on my behalf.  I fear God, who has the final say, as to whether or not Heaven or hell is my home for eternity.  I fear God.  I have learned this.  

Yet there is grace, and there is a compassion, and mercy, that God extends, but I have to be honest.  Thats favor.  

 And I always want to make you think…. Even as I ask this question. Why is favor Deceitful? For the above scripture says it is. And I believe Gods King James word.

Thats why this blog is called, “Just My Thoughts”, but I know its not me, its God, and He gives me the inspiration, I do have.  I call that favor. And I really study His word, to pray, to have the mind of Christ.  But I don’t take it for granted, because I know its a gift.  And if He favors me to do that, I want to do it, at my best ability, for His glory.  But I also realize….

In my own personal life….

Favor, has not been a strong force in my life.  Even according to the worlds standards.  Doors haven’t flung open.  People, and help has not come my way.  Money has not been a great favor either.  And maybe thats good.  Things, have not easily come to me.  

Yet, He meets my every need.  When I need.  Thats favor as well. I am trying to find the balance in this, because I am grateful.  But yet, I haven’t had great favor from people, even from family.  Or friends, I realize.  As I write this.  

I have had my struggles, and I won’t go into all the details.  But, on the subject of favor, and in my humble opinion, I just have a sense, even lately, that we can miss it.  One can take things for granted.  And I think thats a dangerous place to be.  

You can miss it, if you have favor.  And this is why I believe the scripture says it can be deceitful.  It may handicap you so you don’t strive for the excellence, from God, in fear of God.  

Because you think, you know what?

He loves me, this is a great life I live, and I have His favor.  So you stop trying….

You stop trying to please God.  You stop taking the commandments to heart.  His law. You start puffing yourself up, like you are a know it all, or you might even think you are better then somebody else.  So many people in our world, deny God, because they think its all about them, and that is just wrong.  

And when I give an analogy, of why I feel even here, why favor can be deceitful, it is because it could, cause one, to stop growing.  

Just think about it. Think about the beautiful people you know.  People, that are handed things in life, without much of a struggle, they have favor.  But when you look at them sometimes deeper, you realize like all of us, they have flaws.  But yet, they think they are better.   The light might be on, but who is inside?  

The flaws, may not be on the outside, because they are beautiful.  But inside, they are broken.  But they might not see it.  They are, content, even to say, that they don’t feel like they have to try.  I have met people like that.  I have met some people, who like to play at being dumb, and thats a dangerous place to be.  They put the “duh” in dumb.  

And they may even say they believe in God, but there is something, I see, and I relate it to scripture.  That is missing, and is it because favor was deceitful?

FOR MEN SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, COVETOUS, BOASTERS, PROUD, BLASPHEMERS, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS, UNTHANKFUL, UNHOLY, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, TRUCEBREAKERS, FALSE ACCUSERS, INCONTINENT, FIERCE, DESPISERS OF THOSE THAT ARE GOOD, TRAITORS, HEADY, HIGHMINDED, LOVERS OF PLEASURES MORE THAN LOVERS OF GOD; HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING THE POWER THEREOF, FROM SUCH TURN AWAY.  II TIMOTHY 3:3-5.  KJV (please see this from a King James, these same scriptures are out there, but they are corrupted word)

They deny the power thereof.  I will repeat that, they deny the power thereof, because I think, they believe, the favor they have, or may I even say, the “grace” they have, makes them think they don’t have to even say, please or thank you.  

They don’t have to try, they think its all a given.  The favor.  They think they deserve it.  Just because they are on this earth.  Wrong.  Turn away from those kind of examples.  And those kind of people, they should not be your role model.  Jesus should be.  

Do we deserve favor?  I used to think I did. I used to think, I deserved it.  I used to think, just because I served, God, I deserved it.  But, at this point in my life, with all my own failures, and my own flaws, I don’t think I deserve favor any more.  

Maybe thats sad, to expect it, or want it, and evens ay that here, but maybe its for the best, I have not had great favor.  Now I know, I am the head, and not the tail.  According to scripture, but I want to find the right balance, that pleases God.  

Maybe, because I have learned the hard way, to work for what I have, to be my own person, in Christ, and not take anything for granted.  To study who He is, personally.  And see His attributes, His beautiful characteristics.  

To not take a religious figure, and put them on a pedestal, because we all can miss it.  Because that is also idolatry.  And God gets jealous.  But to just be thankful, for what I do have, and give God glory, because I see the difference.  

See, grace and favor, are great, to have, and I am not an idiot, I would love it.  But, I have learned, as well, that favor, can be deceitful.  The enemy, can distract you, and have doors opened, that may make you, think its favor from God, but it may be a test.  How about that idea?  Hmm…..

I was just talking about this with a friend, lately, that, I am sometimes hard on myself.  But, I would rather be hard on myself, and see the error of my ways, then to offer myself grace, and miss it.  

I don’t want to miss being accountable to God and others.  Growth can only happen when we see the error of our ways, repent to God, and in that process, perhaps apologize to someone, or try to make it up, in one way or another.  But more to God.  To change more like Christ.  To get my eyes off of me, my problems, and look at how Christ relates to it.  

But if you have constant favor, you might not try.  So, you be the judge, in it, concerning your own life.  Yes, I long for favor too, but in it, I just pray, I will not grow cold, indifferent, desensitized, or I will not get puffed up, or full of myself and forget where I came from.

This West side kid, from Denver, Colorado, knows her humble beginnings.  I know where God has brought me, from.  I know, I am nothing without Jesus.  I know I hit rock bottom at one time.  I know, that I fell through the cracks in many ways.   

Maybe thats all the favor I need.  Because He saved me.  He reached out, and saved me.  I will take it, and be thankful.  I will also serve Him, for the rest of my life.  Whether I have extra favor or not.  

God already proved Himself to me, and I know it.  He does not have to jump through hoops for me.  I know He saved me, I know my God.  And I also, know there is a lost world out there.  I know, many need to see His light, and I will try and shine it.  

And I pray if I ever get any more favor, I will always be mindful to consider those scriptures above, and not deny the power, thereof.  Because then the scripture would be fulfilled to say that yes, favor is deceitful.  And I don’t want favor to be deceitful in my life.

 Just saying….in just these thoughts of mine.

Blessings and love,

WHEN PASTORS ARE DECEIVED BY THE DEVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_789Its a very sad thing, when you see and know a Pastor has been deceived by the devil.

When you see Pastors push people away from truth, from Gods true word.  Its a sad thing, when you don’t see love.  When you see Pastors, talk about other churches, and puff themselves up, as if they know the truth.  But they do not see the error of their own ways.  

We are called to love one another.  And I know that there are things, we do not always agree on.  But when a Pastor, does not have patience.  Does not see the truth, the perspective from God himself.  He no longer, is guided by God, or the Holy spirit.  But by the devil himself.  

They become deceived by the devil.  

We are called to look at the fruit.  By their fruit you will know them.  I have been to so many churches, and I have searched, long, and hard, for truth.  I have searched for love.  Love that is holy from God.  Love that is in line with Gods truth.  Love that is compassionate as Christ is. Love that accepts all people.  And encourages, people of all races to attend.  

I know we are all different, we are all growing on the vine at different stages.  But Christ said, we would be known by the love.  

And there are some things I tolerate, in love, but doctrine, is not one thing I compromise on.  I do search for a place, where King James word is.  But where there is a balance in truth. 

But when I see a pastor, or a church, where growth is not there.  Something, is wrong.  Its not Gods fault, but the pastor, or the leader of the church is not doing something.  

I guess, I have had a taste of this or that, so with discernment, I know, what pleases God.  By worship, by prayer, at the beginning of a service, so the Holy Spirit, can have full control.  By love.  For if love comes from the pulpit, it would flow to the whole congregation.  

When Pastors, are not patient, in even disagreeing, what does that say?  If they do not communicate, when spoken to…If they accuse members of discord, and insist they are protecting the congregation, yet, pushing someone away who is sincerely, asking, for guidance, and they are reprimanded, just because they ask, thats not love.  

This according to Jeremiah 23;1 is scattering the body of Christ.  It is not unity, but it is causing division.   A house divided cannot stand.  Christ warned us, that they would push us out of our churches.  Out of their synagogues.  This is a Pharisee spirit.  Beware. 

He told us, these things. It does not make one feel better, but we know. 

It is a sad state, we are all in, as the body of Christ.  And it very well does make me understand, why many people stop going to church.  Religion, is a very strange thing. When people embrace, “religious” principles, that go against the word of God, they are thereby making their own rules, regulations, and traditions.  And they lose something.  They are losing, truth, their emotions, they are losing relationship.  Relationship with Christ.  They are creating their own religion.  

They lose the guidance of the Holy spirit, by the truth.  Yes, it has to be truth, Gods holy King James word.  To take the responsibility, as a Pastor,  I am sure would be a very difficult job.  Yet, with God guiding, I know it would be easy.  He says, take my yoke it is easy.  

But it is sad, when the truth, is picked over, or the gospel is watered down.  And instead there is a tickling of the ears.  To please people.  Or to please just the pastor. Himself. But not God. Theres always a balance, and a false balance, is an abomination to God.  

To lose balance, of truth, to lose balance, and accept, that salvation is secure, is not in fear of God.  Its not taking to heart the many scriptures, that God has given us.  Salvation can be lost.  Folks, salvation, is a gift.  But it is a contract.  We have our part.  God did His part, by sending His son to die for us.  Christ did His part, by going on the cross, being obedient, to the Father.

But we have our part, we are to work out our salvation, with trembling, and fear.  Fear of God.  For He is the one who will judge us.  He is the one, who can either allow us in heaven or hell.  But it is by what we did on this earth.  

We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Repentance, is what keeps you secure.  Obedience to God. Do not forget that, no matter what you get out of this.  Remember repentance, is what keeps the slate clean.  In fear of God. 

Never take that for granted.  If you do not see altar calls, for the lost, the broken, the backslider, to come to the altar to repent.  That is a church, where the pastor is being disobedient.  Don’t go there.  When you see communion is not served.  In remembrance of Christ.  Don’t go there.  If you see, God is not invited at the beginning of the service to have full reign, to guide that service, in prayer.  Don’t go there.  If you see, worship, is not encouraged, don’t go there.  Worship must be always to please… the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  If you do not see prayer, for one another, and it is not encouraged, then don’t go there.  If you see, the pastor, does not encourage everyone, in their own gifts and callings don’t go there.  If you see the message, turns into a prosperity message, and someone twists and claims scripture for self, but dismisses salvation.  Run….don’t follow them.  Follow Christ.  

If you do not see the pastor, love the people, but hides, and is evasive, run from that church.  If you see, the scorner, the person, that thinks they are only right, but everybody else is wrong, at the pulpit, run from that church.  

If you see, someone else being denied freedom of speech, or does not let someone express themselves, this is mind control.  We all need to communicate now, and then, this is not discord, just because you talk.  To another brother or sister in Christ. Or because you have different ideas. For someone who would take this stance, is very insecure themselves.   This is someone, if they could would burn you at the stake if they could.  

Instead, of talking, or communicating to someone, in love but putting someone down.  This kind of spirit is trying to take away your own ability to think on your own.  This is someone who does not embrace freedom to be themselves.  Or others.

If someone has no respect to your pace, as to where you are, as a baby Christian, or as, even a seasoned Christian, or as just someone who wants to learn in Christ, or wants to understand the church, and are called, disrespectful, troublemakers, or someone causing discord, these kind of pastors are not walking in love.  And, in Christ. We all need to ask questions, and love each other.  If you don’t see the love run.

You don’t have to deny someone a right to think to be a leader.  You don’t have to hit someone with the Bible, or hit someone back in the head with the Bible.  Just because they disagree.  But remember this, God is a legal God.  And I am reminded, I will stand before Him, because His law is the standard.  Read Psalms 119 from a King James.

Sure share word, and again, I only suggest King James word, because other versions are corrupt, and no longer holy or anointed, but share love, more then anything. 

Run from them.  Don’t let someone control your mind, or your soul, by being a part of them.  By even being a member of that.  It flows from the top, and it will flow to you, and decay your soul. 

Salvation should always be the goal of the pastor.  And the goal to bring the backslider back to the throne of God.    If you do not see it, this is a dead church. 

Sometimes it takes a while to see the signs.  But God will protect you.  Just stay obedient to God.  Even if you don’t see love from the pulpit.  Even if you have been rejected.  Even if you were misunderstood.  

Stay true to God.  Pray for that pastor, for you see, they have been deceived.  Pray for the members of that church.  You see, they are Gods lambs.  Not the pastor, who is disobedient to God.  He sees the wolf in sheeps clothing. Just stay true to God, do not get discouraged.  

God loves you, and He will guide you.  You don’t wish or hope anything bad for anybody.  But you know what God says.  

For, it is a sad thing, when you know, truth, and love, and you see something from the pulpit that is not of God.  

Just depart, and walk in peace.  And always stay humble, and pray.  You may be sad, or broken hearted, because it is a sad thing.  To see, division, to see disobedience, to see religion, raise its ugly head, and call it Gods truth.  

But you know who you are in Christ, and you choose to walk in love.  Walk away.

Remember, if you have been accused, or hurt by someone, remember, Christ will stand by the accused.  If they are innocent.  If they are being obedient to Him.  You see the devil, will use an accuser but that accuser has a place right in hell.  

Sad, sometimes the devil will use a Pastor, to be an accuser.  And they don’t see it, because they think they are right.  And they scatter the church.  This happens, when a Pastor is deceived by the devil. 

AND 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.  AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY, AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:10-11.   

WOE BE UNTO THE PASTORS THAT DESTROY AND SCATTER THE SHEEP OF MY PASTURE.  SAITH THE LORD.  THEREFORE THUS SAITH THE LORD OF ISRAEL AGAINST THE PASTORS THAT FEED BY PEOPLE.  YE HAVE SCATTERED MY FLOCK, AND DRIVEN THEM AWAY, AND HAVE NOT VISITED THEM, BEHOLD I WILL VISIT UPON YOU THE EVIL OF YOUR DOINGS, SAITH THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 23:1  KJV.

FOR THE PASTORS ARE BECOME BRUTISH, AND HAVE NOT SOUGHT THE LORD:  THEREFORE THEY SHALL NOT PROSPER, AND ALL THEIR FLOCKS SHALL BE SCATTERED.  JEREMIAH 10:21 KJV.

MANY PASTORS HAVE DESTROYED MY VINEYARD, THEY HAVE TRODDEN MY PORTION UNDER FOOT, THEY HAVE MADE MY PLEASANT PORTION A DESOLATE WILDERNESS.  THEY HAVE MADE IT DESOLATE, AND BEING DESOLATE IT MOURNETH UNTO ME, THE WHOLE LAND IS MADE DESOLATE, BECAUSE NO MAN LAYETH IT TO HEART.  JEREMIAH 12:10-11.  KJV.   

Christ saved me, as I repented.  You see, I was saved at an early age.  But I sinned, after that.  But if I had died, before repenting, I know, I would have found hell as my destination.  

But I overcame the enemy, even now,  by the blood of the lamb.  By Gods truth.  HIS LAWS!  Not mine, but His. By rededicating myself. By repenting.  By my testimony to the mercy of God, in salvation.

These things, I have experienced.  But I so know the difference friends.  If you need prayer, or kindness, feel free to write to me.  I will lift you up to the Father.  I will try to be someone to put salve on your own wounds, to ease your pain, because I do understand.  And I am healed in Christ.  

Blessings, and love in Christ,
