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.  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.  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,

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_72c.jpeg

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS…..

A letter to personal friends, friends, I know on Fb only, and friends, I cherish, friends, I hardly know. Friends, who are really no longer friends to me. Yet I call you friends.

Friends, I take that word seriously.

I want to start the New Year of 2017 on a clear slate. I want to make sure, that I ask God for forgiveness. First. Because He is our King. And well because sometimes, well, maybe I sin. And I don’t even know. That I have sinned. Maybe I think something, or do something, that may offend Him. So I repent.

But I want to take this further, with you my friends, so I write this as an open letter. I ask that you forgive me.

I ask you to forgive me, if I come off to strong. If I come off with maybe something you see as being, arrogant. Or I come off, like I am too good. Or a know it all. Forgive me.

I ask you to forgive me, if I write something, that you may take personally. And maybe, I did not think of you in that way, but you took it personally, as if perhaps I was judging you. Forgive me.

Forgive me, if I let you down. If I perhaps committed to do something, but something else got in the way, and you felt slighted, rejected, or put off by me. Forgive me.

Forgive me if I said I would do something, but it did not happen in the way you thought it would. Forgive me.

You see, more then ever, I want to be an expression of Christ. But I know, by wisdom, that we do not all see it all the same. We don’t always all agree. And we are all growing on the vine at different places.

If I share something, or tell you something, even generally, I would hope you would see, that I say it, I share it, because I love you. I love our Lord, and I love truth. I think the thing I hate most is a lie. I hate, how it deceives. Yet I know truth can hurt. So forgive me.

I just know as I look back on this year, that I have had good intentions, but they did not always come through that way. I felt misunderstood, I felt sad, that people change. But that I have too.

I felt sad when I was challenged, and I gave grace, but grace was not extended to me.

I just know its a part of life. We all may want to do the best, we can. but we don’t always come through. So, I reflect on my own life, to ask God and you all to forgive me, if I came across, your way, but you did not see love. You saw something else.

Forgive me. I reflect because I hope to learn from my mistakes. But I realize we all make mistakes. We all sin, we all come short of His glory. He is the only one that is perfect.

I really do want to try. I really do want to be a reflection of Christ. I really do want to clean the slate. Resolutions…. are wonderful goals, if they are committed by Christ.

I just pray, to be someone God will extend mercy to too. So thank you, as I ask for forgiveness.

I don’t care if someone does not understand this, or may mock this….but I know, being humble in the sight of God, and not being proud. Not being accountable, really hurts me more in the long run.

So, I say, Forgive me. Thank you, and God bless you….. May God bless your new year, in whatever you may do.

WHEN YOU DON’T AGREE WITH CHRISTIAN LEADERS IN POLITICS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2030

Please look at that scripture in the above photo.  Look very closely.

When I was growing up, I was warned.  In matters of decorum, you don’t talk about politics, and you don’t talk about religion.

Well I threw that adage out the window a long time ago.  Because whether people want to agree or not, we need to see whats going on in our country.  And we need to talk about it.  With each other.

And the strange thing, is that politics are affected by the lack of wisdom, from someone, who does not have fear of God, in such matters.  I am not wincing words here.  You do not want to be deceived.  

I have seen enough in this election, to make me cringe, that Christian leaders who should have wisdom, and understanding of Gods ways, and truth are not supporting it.  They are not vocal about it.  

And in fact, are doing and saying things, that are the opposite of Gods truth, and are greatly influencing others.  They think because they have the forum, and the power, they can say, what they want, and not have any consequences, concerning that.  But they forget there is a judgment day for all of us.

Well that kind of endorsing, is wrong thinking on any Christians part.  Because we do all have a responsibility to know Gods truth, to know what God says in a matter, and not to align ourselves with someone, who should know better.  Or someone who purposely, disregards God, and His truth.

Politics are affected by these matters.  Now I don’t like using the word religion, because it always gives a connotation about a group, or a particular ideology.  But what I do refer it to, is to my relationship with Christ, that I have from my King James Bible, and prayer.  And yes, I look at the fruit of someone in politics.  Something Mr. Cruz, early in his campaign told us to look at.  That was wisdom.  Without, trying to enforce anything on anybody.

Bully tactics, are something, we should look at.  And avoid. Because well, it goes totally against who we are as Christians.  Christ, has never called us to enforce something on someone. He does not even take His word, and hit us on the head with it.  He gives us a choice.  Free will.  But if we do not choose Him, well we choose wrong.

Many of you may be like me, where you are disappointed, in who some of our Christian leaders are now a days…

You think they should not support or endorse someone who has shown time, and time again, fruit that is not Christ like.  To say the least.

Well, its time for you to stand up, where you are, with what you got.  Your King James Bible, which is truth, and not corrupted, and stand and make a stand for the Kingdom of God, and yes for your country.

I believe prayer, is something, we need to begin doing more of.  Myself included.  And to pray repentant.  Because more then ever, we are seeing the fruit of this in our country.  The sins, that we have allowed, over, and over again.  Including abortion.  But we do need to pray.  For Gods wisdom for our leaders, including those Christian leaders who let us down.  And we need to pray, for guidance, from God and yes forgiveness.

But, concerning Christian leaders who have displayed a parting of Gods truth.  I briefly want to say, when I feel that way, I am careful not to pray with them, or agree with them. You see, there is an anointing, that flows from the top and makes a covenant with someone in matters. This is why I would choose to have a Godly president, over someone who does not.

So when I see someone who is in the body of Christ choose someone, I don’t agree with, well that red alert or red flag is revealed. Its not that I don’t walk in love. Its not that I would even want to start an argument. Its a matter of choosing sides.

Gods side, and everything He says. Or what the enemy might choose.

You see, loyalty is very important to God.  Being right in His sight.  Its far more better then voting, against your conscience.

When we choose to align ourselves, even in prayer with someone, we do not agree with, what does that say to God?

Now we must, especially in these times, be careful, who we align ourselves with. We must ask God for wisdom.

I just think its wise, for myself anyway, not to align myself with someone, who has displayed in conversation or support, to someone who has gone against everything Christ has taught us. Either we obey God, or we don’t. Be careful who you pray with, and agree with.

Since, I cannot be a hypocrite, strange I got tested in this matter.  And what I have learned, even in this, is pray, people are not deceived.  Pray people get the blinders off of their eyes.  Because the enemy will use people, even people, who have a form of light, and they are true darkness.  Remember the enemy was light.  He can transform himself.  Pray you are not deceived.  Pray for those who are.  

Be careful to be prayerful in matters, more then ever for our country.  I just feel the Lord prompting me more to work on my own love walk.  To avoid strife.  To take on Christ more in my communications, and to avoid arguments, that are just meant to be a snare, to my soul.

After hearing another Christian leader give an endorsement, this is my thought:

Plz don’t tell me you cannot judge someone’s heart. After they have spoken evil! Did we forget what Christ taught us? Are we going to let the blind lead us?

I FOLLOW CHRIST NOT MAN!

“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

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Luke 6:45 KJV

In conclusion:  I just feel led to also remind you to be in prayer for our country more so. To remind you, that you have the ability to be a vessel for the Lord.  To work on our love walk. To avoid the spirit of strife that comes from some who really have no sense of truth. Pray for people, but don’t strike up a friendship with, someone who really is friends with strife. Someone, who really just wants to argue. That kind of self confidence, is evil.  

Be careful friends, blessings, and love in Christ.  May God be glorified, and I believe in miracles.  For the United States of America. 

Elena Ramirez

MAKE NO FRIENDSHIP WITH AN ANGRY MAN; AND WITH A FURIOUS MAN THOU SHALT NOT GO: LEST THOU LEARN HIS WAYS, AND GET A SNARE TO THY SOUL. BE NOT THOU ONE OF THEM THAT STRIKE HANDS, OR OF THEM THAT ARE SURETIES FOR DEBTS. PROVERBS 22:24:26. KJV.

More, and more, and more, we see it in the news, we see it in reports, in communications, more and more people are denying God.

They deny Him, by rules and regulations, they try to enforce on others.  They do it, by taking rights away, like prayer.  They try and stifle, freedom of speech.  

They do it by removing Bibles, from hotels, and in any way they can, they try to force their unbelief on others.

Unbelief…..how can something real, and true, deny Himself, to the world, when He exists?  But when someone does not want to believe.  One must know, God does exist, but He will not change, or deny Himself, but He tests us.

Well, we reap what we sow.  It is a principle.  Like what goes up, comes down.  People, do not see, they are being tested.  Tested, to see if they truly believe, and if they accept what Christ did on the cross.

God for whatever His reasons are, does test us.  Everything, we do is written in the book of life.  All of our thoughts, all of our actions, all of our behaviors, He tests us.  He sees, if we will have faith, or if we will deny Him.  He tests us to know whats really in our hearts, and our souls.

I can only surmise, by what my King James Bible says, which is holy and true, and anointed, that He also tests us to see see if we can know the difference between a counterfeit bible, a corrupted bible that has been changed, and revised.  He tests us.

The words, are commanded not to be changed.  Not to be added to, not to be deleted.  Not to be subtracted.  But people don’t see this truth.  They are being tested.  To obey, or not to obey.  

Do any of you remember the story of Abraham?  Read Genesis 22, from a King James bible. In this story, God tested Abraham.  He told Abraham to make his son the sacrifice.  Up to the very last moment, Abraham obeyed, when the angel of the Lord, told him, not to lay his hand on his son.  

But now God knew by this “Testing” that he was obedient and passed this.  God then promised a great blessing, in telling him.  His seed would possess the gate of his enemies.  And He would multiply Him,  because he obeyed God.  Abraham named that place. Jehovah Jireh….the Lord will provide.  Because God provided the ram, for sacrifice.  Like He provided His only Son our Lord Jesus, as the ultimate sacrifice, for us now, in the new covenant.  

Do you ever think, what you do will affect your future generations?  Like His. Do you ever think how your ancestors, may have had a part in what you deal with now?  I do.  Who knows what they did?  But it was either a curse or a blessing.  

So I want to do everything I can to reverse the curses, and to please God.  In fear of God.  I want Gods blessings, but only if it brings Him glory.      

I see this, and I know, we in this journey of life, we reap what we sow.  In other words, what goes around comes around.  And God is not mocked.  Yes we are being tested.

All of us.  For someday, we will all stand before God almighty.  But…Before that, we will see Jesus in the clouds, and the heavens will be opened.  Angels will be on standby and with the trumpets, they will announce that Christ, the King will be here.  Christ will separate those who are true, and those that are not.  

I believe, we all will be judged.  Because of the testing.  Because the records will be opened.

Friend, I don’t know you.  I don’t know what you have gone through.  Why your heart, is the way it is.

But I want to implore you, don’t be like the world.  If you believe, in Christ, as your Lord and savior, you need to see, what you are doing.  You cannot, and I implore you, you cannot live like the world, and expect your salvation to be in tact.

You cannot.  God has His law in place, His commandments, His ways, and if we do not try to obey, with the fear of God, knowing what the consequences are, we will perish.  People perish, because of lack of knowledge.

We seem to allow all these things that are going on, and we are not strong, in the face of evil.  The battle is the Lords, but God does test you.  When you have a chance to speak against unrighteousness, or to praise God, do you?  Or do you just turn the other way?  And silence is expressed.  But it is not golden.  Not if anything we allow takes away the glory of God.  

Do you expect someone else to do it for you?  I have to look at myself, as well, but with all  I have, I have determined, to give God glory.

Yesterday, I had a revelation of my own personally.  There is much I am grateful for.  That God has given me.  All of it.  There have been things I have asked for, and did not get.  But there is also things, I did not want, and did not get, and I am so grateful.  In this thought, I realized, I do not want anything if it takes away from God, His glory, that He so deserves, and is due.  It was so profound to me, and gave me peace.  Because I am dealing with something personally.  My goal is to only give Him glory, honor, and praise.  Anything else, cannot be the priority.  But Him….

Tested, I know, what He wants.  It is in obedience, with love, that I try, and by accepting Christ as my Lord, and savior, I cannot treat this gift shabbily.  It came at a great cost.  His life for ours, for our sins.

So for us to allow anyone, to take that right away, what does that say, when we won’t stand up for what Christ did for us?

All I know friends, it is written in my King James Bible.  We are tested.  And we reap what we sow.  We can do our part.

But it begins by not denying our Lord and savior.  Even in little things.  He told us, if we were ashamed of Him, He would be ashamed of us, when we are presented to God the father.

Friend, do not be ashamed.  Do not deny God…..The world will pay for it.  But you can be separate from those that have failed the test.

Just my thoughts today, in Christ, and His love,

What a mighty, good, and awesome, God I serve. Sometimes, just a thought, that He gives by the Holy Spirit, touches me, comforts me, and gives me hope. And all based on His promises from my King James Bible.

I don’t care what people think. They don’t live my life. They don’t know what Christ has done for me, how He has forgiven me. Extended mercy. Healed me, and so much more.

The other day someone told me I was “brainwashed” because I believe in Jesus. And I just said, I am forgiven. I am not lost. This person, laughed at me, and I shared Galatians 6:7. To show God is not mocked.

But when I was talking to my Lord, He told me:

“You are not “brainwashed” you are “soul washed”, because you believe in me”.

Thats the difference, and we should all know that.  But our minds can be changed as well.  By the washing of our souls.  We can have the mind of Christ.  

I CORINTHIANS 2:16 KJV

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.  

Enough, of people mocking, or putting down something that is holy and true. I know the difference. And I am so grateful for what Christ has done for me. And because I am soul washed, I will give Him glory, for the rest of life.

Some can deny Him, some can be ashamed, some can be quiet. To each their own. Sadly….

Some may not know. But I do. There is a God, He rules, and reigns. He is mighty and in power. The fool says there is no God.  See Psalm 14:1 King James.

I know there is, a true and mighty God.

I will not blame Him for my sins. My heartaches. I know we reap what we sow. From that above scripture.

And I pray to make it up to Him for the rest of my life, for His glory. I highlight this bottom scripture with quotes, to prove, He “WASHED” me from my sins.

I Love you all, I hope you know Christ loves you too.

Elena Ramirez

AND FROM JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, AND THE FIRST BEGOTTEN OF THE DEAD, AND THE PRINCE OF THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. UNTO HIM THAT LOVED US, AND “WASHED” US FROM OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BLOOD, AND HATH MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS UNTO GOD AND HIS FATHER; TO HIM BE GLORY AND DOMINION FOR EVER AND EVER. AMEN.

But let it be the hidden man of the heart in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price I Peter 3:4.

More then ever, it seems that “subliminal” messages, are the norm.  But what it reveals, is what is in the heart of the messenger.  The giver of the thought….

They are every where.  We are inundated with messages, thoughts, inspiration, advertising, and agendas….

Our hearts, are like opened, or closed doors.  

And so as a Christian, you want to keep yourself holy in the sight of God.  Hard to do in this world we live in.  Some things just desensitize us and so you become immune, to many things that may come your way.  

Yet, you need to protect your spirit.

I have not heard a message on this, but being led by the Holy Spirit, I agree, and see the importance of this as I write.

Scripture tells us, we worship God in spirit and truth.  

God is a spirit:  and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.  John 4:24.  

So what spirits, or spirit, are you led by?  For God sees this in truth.

How do we get to that place in holiness, in obedience to what Christ has done for us, as we are cleansed in our spirits, to now be a vessel, an instrument of Christ?  

We have to see, we must protect our spirits.  By that which we allow.  By either reading, watching television, friends that we choose, and yes even in the spiritual entities of the church we attend.  

For this very reason, I long for a pure and holy word, so this is why I use a King James bible.  But what about the church you attend?  Or the voices  you listen to?  Even in the counsel you ask for?  

These “subliminal” messages, you receive, will shape you, will build you, or destroy you.  So you need discernment.  To know.  This is wisdom.  To know and see through the intent, and agenda, of the messenger, what is right.  What is wrong.  

A subliminal message, will hint at the agenda.  It will not come to the point, specifically, yet you get the drift of it.  You can see, either something is left out, or denied, quietly.  Yet it will make you think.  It will make you wonder, it will entice you, if you let it.   The dictionary, tells us, that it will “influence your mind in such a way that you do not notice.” 

It is as if it is a seed, and if you water it, nourish it, it will grow.  This can be sin.  This can be holiness.  You see, it just depends what seed you allow to grow in your spirit.  To determine the “fruit” of your tree.  

The holy word of God, my King James bible, tells us what Christ said.  And He said, do not let any man steal your crown.  He said, beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.  He said, beware the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  He told us the enemy is a deceiver.  He has paid the price, for our holiness, but are we so naive, like sheep, that we can be led away by a “subliminal” thought?

They are there these thoughts.  That come to us.

I just saw one, on a paid commercial on television, where a couple was having a discussion, and it was over a piece of candy.  But the difference was she was in bed, with the candy.  And I just thought, the subliminal message to any child, would be to think its o.k. to be in bed with candy.

And where are the strong moral, messages?  That teach integrity, and honor, and that which is right in the sight of God?  They may be gone, in society, but if you are a Christian you have a responsibility to be a message, that does give honor to God.

That is someone, who must live life in honor of God, for what Christ did.  So what subliminal message, do people see in you?  I do believe we do have to ask that.

Because we already know God does see the intentions of our hearts….

Is your heart open to the messages, that can deceive?  Or do you guard your heart….

And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shew thee: for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither:  delcare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.  Ezekiel 40:4.

This message, was paid for in full, by the sacrifice of Christ.

Blessings, my friends, as our hearts ponder on this.

The spirit of anger.  It can be caught like a cold, and you may not even know you have it.  It can erupt at any time, and cause total devastation, and not only hurt you, but hurt others.

Its like a volcano, brewing, steaming, and if not watched, nipped, and put to rest, it can destroy lives.  

I write about it, because you know sometimes, we don’t really know what we are capable of, when angry.  I write about it, because I have seen it hurt myself, and others, and I lived in a household as I grew up, where anger was evident now and then.  

This post is not to criticize anyone, or make anyone feel bad, but to be honest, I just sense how the enemy of God, does use anger, and provokes people to do things, they would never want to do, or to have done to them.  Yet, many do.

They give into anger.  And I want to talk about it, as a spirit, because I truly believe there are many other different spirits, that we can be mindful of, and this particular one, is meant to destroy.  

We always have to know where things come froem, to get to the root of something.  And the enemy of God, the devil, is known to kill, steal, and destroy.  He wants to steal the destiny God has for you, and destroy that purpose, and anger can be used to do that.  Our jails are filled with angry people.  

But if one can know in advance, recognize it, as a spirit, and take God at His word, I believe, they can stop that anger, they can curve it, into energy, as a spirit, to do good things.  

Now mind you, righteous indignation, that may be considered anger, can benefit some, and can bring a purpose for a wrong doing.  But you have to see, and know what God says about everything, and we are warned to be careful not to be angry.

You are the one who has to rule this spirit.  

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.  Proverbs 16:32.  KJV. 

Have you ever gotten angry, at someone right before bedtime, and not resolved a situation?  We are told, to not let the sun set on our anger.  This scripture tells us that, and I also believe it affects our emotional, and physical health.  

It is best if we can make peace with whoever has angered us, and not to give into that anger, in our time of rest.  

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.  Ephesians 4:26 KJV.

We are told not to make friends with angry people.  Look, we all have moments where we want to vent, and its good to have a friend who understands.  But something about anger, it is contagious, and if you value your peace of mind, be aware of angry people, and steer away from them.  They can influence you, and also get you in trouble.  

Sometimes, though its hard, you don’t know this that it affects you, but you see the fruit, and some people need to know especially that anger is not a fruit of the spirit.  Which I recommend you look up yourself.  In a good King James bible.  As Christians we are to follow this sense of instruction, in the fruit of the spirit, for our own spirits to bear fruit in Christ.    

But here in this scripture is the warning:

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go.  Proverbs 22:24.  

Ever noticed that an angry person, instigates, or tries to cause problems as well?

An angry man stirreth up strife, and a curious man aboundeth in transgression.  Proverbs 29:22.

As Christians we are called to have the spirit of Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to love one another, and to have self-control.  

Yes, even Christ got angry, and I admire, His anger when He overthrew the tables at the temple.  For He saw, how this place was used to make money, and not for prayer.  And yes, one could say it was extreme.  But no one got hurt, and no one, was a target of His anger.  

Even when He was in the garden and the disciple cut the ear off of the soldier, He used His healing authority, and power to restore the soldiers ear.  He could have had angels at His calling, He could have done angry things, in that moment, but our God is so much greater then that.  So we are called to have self-control.  We are called to love, we are called, to not give into anger.    

The following scripture, also talks about how we are to have self-control:

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God, not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.  Titus 1:7.  

I want to encourage you, perhaps, you have just come across this post, by curiosity, or it is a problem, God can turn it around.  

He can give you peace, in situations, that normally would bring anger out in you.  But you have to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  If you have not given Christ your heart, now would be a great time, to make it right with Christ.  Give Him your anger, and repent, give your heart to Him.  Tell Him, to change your heart.    

You have to let His spirit, rule your heart, you have to repent.  You have to be aware of this spirit, and make the attempt to make it right.  It can be done, I know.  Behaviors, that can bring curses, can be changed by Christ.  I understand this spirit of anger, but I myself had to bring it to Christ, to change me and He has.    

I write about it in my book.  Feel free to check out the link, in the photo above and I pray, God bless you, if you have anger.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7. 

Blessings, and love in Christ,   Elena Ramirez
