THE HATERS OF THE LORD SHOULD HAVE SUBMITTED THEMSELVES UNTO HIM: BUT THEIR TIME SHOULD HAVE ENDURED FOR EVER. PSALM 81:15
I have to say this: Mocking God is stupid. And I guess, I came to this great revelation, because on social media, there are so many people, who want to mock God. You can see a post, and just make a sweet little general comment, and the vultures come out.
It is actually sad, that people have no respect. Sure, I believe in free speech for others, but for myself as well. And you just wonder, why someone would combat you so strongly, to deny God. Or to deny free speech. Or to make a mockery of something that is precious, and that is a belief in God. To someone else. Why?
Why would someone, have so much animosity, to actually be rude, is disconcerting. And to who it may concern, even reading here, I pray, that you would take my words to heart, because someday you are going to need God. We all need Him. He created us, to seek Him. He created, us to call on Him, in times of trouble. Life happens.
But God…I know He can intervene. He has for me, so many times. A warning, an angel in disguise, a blessing. A miracle. A healing….
God has done so much for me, that I praise Him, and thank Him here. No your talking to the wrong person, if you want to deny Him. I know He is real. I know, He exists. I know, His love….
I truly believe, so many of our problems, in life, and society, could be stopped, or avoided, if we only had the fear of God, as He has called us to do.
And yes, I am calling it for what it is, according to His word, and truth, from my King James Bible. Fear. We are called to fear God. And when someone mocks an almighty God, who holds our lives in His hands, and yes our souls, to either send us to heaven or hell, and they have no fear, to even stop, and see the error of their ways, that is stupid!
That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the Lord your God for ever. Joshua 4:24.
I don’t understand this pride, to deny God. To deny His healing power. To deny just His protection at a moments notice. How can any of us expect Him, to be available in time of need, if we don’t even honor Him? I know many people do not believe. It is their choice. And God, our Lord Jesus, is a gentleman, He does not ever push Himself on any of us.
But I guess, there was a time, when I was younger, that when you did not believe, you were at least courteous, to keep it to yourself. Or you gave someone the benefit of the doubt. But now a days, there is no respect. I see horrible, rude, and insulting things, that I cannot even repeat, but are centered around God. To insult, or to deny. And yes, to His followers, in Jesus Christ.
I implore you, to be careful. You don’t want to believe in God, that is your choice…. But the Holy word of God says, every knee will bow. Every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord.
For it is written, as I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. Romans 14:11
And for someone to reject, mock, and insult the only one who could help you in time of need, is actually stupid for lack of a more gracious word.
Because I would love to extend grace to you. God would as well. But because of who He is, and because He will not condone, or accept sin, He sent us His son, Jesus Christ, to take the penalty of our sins. And when someone denies that great gift, they have hurt themselves so greatly here on earth, but for eternity. No that is not too smart.
And for those that persecute Christians, or make life hard for them, you have no idea, what curses you have brought to your own life. But even future generations. God says He will punish up to the fourth generation. Those that deny Him, or even choose an idol.
I just hope my words resonate with you. To perhaps revaluate your stance. You know, I denied God years ago, in my youth. And those were the darkest days of my life. And now, all these years, that I have been saved, I see, how stupid I was. Yes, I humbly admit it. I wish, I could go back, and change those times. But, I live with the memories. I live with the consequences of my foolish choices. But for the rest of my life, and God only knows how long that is. I will serve Him. I will Honor God. I will give glory to Him. For forgiving me. For giving me another chance. And I praise Him, and know, with all my being, nothing is impossible with God.
THINE OWN WICKEDNESS SHALL CORRECT THEE, AND THY BACKSLIINGS SHALL REPROVE THEE: KNOW THEREFORE AND SEE THAT IT IS AN EVIL THING AND BITTER, THAT THOU HAST FORSAKEN THE LORD THY GOD, AND THAT MY FEAR IS NOT IN THEE, SAITH THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS. JEREMIAH 2:19
But even then, being as stupid as I was. I never attacked someone for believing in God. If anything, maybe someone inspired me. But to purposely try and hurt, and insult someone for believing in God, comes from the devil, and is evil. So no, even in my disbelief, I never tried to hurt anyone. I hope you see this, and repent.
You see, when you come against a Christian, or the work of God, you are messing with Gods plan, and His glory. He did not let the devil steal His glory from the beginning, and He will not let someone steal it now. There will be a price to pay!
So yes, I know the difference, and maybe that is why I can ask you, and implore you to be careful. You see, your soul is at stake. And all the things you call luck, have nothing to do with luck, but with who God is in His grace. So if you are some body who hates, to mock, and insult, I pray you have a change of heart. Before it is too late. Before you need a miracle.
You could still get it, you could change your outcome if you change now. All you have to do is bow your head down, repent, and repent of the mockery you have made, and ask Christ in your heart. Then change, your mind, your behavior, and LET CHRIST change your heart. FOR HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN MAKE THAT DIFFERENCE!
Read a good King James Bible, and hear the voice of God. Not any other Bible, you want something uncorrupted.
Because if you don’t you will only have yourself to blame, and for eternity, you will say in hell….why was I so stupid?
Maybe this scripture will remind you what is ahead, for those who mock.
Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:7-9
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
Please Note: I wrote this, out of mere frustration, that people can be so rude. And yet, I detect in myself, a harshness, that is so blunt here, it can also be considered rude. But that really is not my intention. Perhaps, my being blunt, and honest, can open someones eyes. To see Fathers love. To see His mercy, and kindness. To see, how good God really is. I really do love, and have love, because of Christ….oh if you had known me, in my youth, you would understand. But, I pray that you would ensure your salvation with Christ. I am not sure when Christ would return, but it could be soon. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Friend, and I call you friend, if you are someone who is searching, please, see the truth I tell you in this post, and see it as love. Because Christ does love you. Make it right with Him. Live for Christ. You will not regret it. Elena
I call it a spirit of depression, because it is. And when you understand, why things come and happen, you can fight it effectively. You can get to the root of the problem.
I address, this in view of what has happened recently, to the beloved, Mr. Williams. And my disclaimer is this, for I do not know what “demons he dealt with”. But there is one name greater then any demon, and that is Jesus Christ. But I do understand the evil of it, and I will explain further.
But I do so carefully, because as I see how it took the life of this beloved man, I am careful, because one never, ever knows what someone is going through, or has gone through. This is one reason, we should always be sharing the gospel, and our own testimonies, because Jesus has made a difference in our lives. And, this is why we must offer love to one another, as Christ commanded, and yes be very careful with judging. Please I repeat, be careful, how you judge a matter or a person.
And I bring it up, because I have dealt with depression in my life. In my own life, I have seen it, and yes even in my mothers. And I saw she never did overcome it, sadly, even to her, death. For her depression, made her so angry, that she died sad, angry, and miserable.
And I am opening myself in some ways, yet, I am keeping a sense of privacy, as I express this, because I also guard myself.
But depression, does come from the pit of hell. We do deal with demons. And when someone says that, it is not far from truth, because it is truth. And if people could understand it, as a spirit first, then you can combat it. You see, the enemy the devil, comes to kill, steal and destroy, and if he can do that, he will win. Jesus, knew, that the enemy came to hurt us, in all aspects of our life, so Christ became the penalty of sin, to take the “legal” right from the devil. But the devil will still try and hurt us, so we have to know how to take the word of God, and we have to know how to fight a good fight of faith, by giving it to Jesus.
What has worked for me, and again this is my disclaimer, but if one does have it, they can fight it. By prayer, yes, even fasting, and praising God. You see, when we seek God, who is a “spirit” and we worship Him, in spirit and truth, we can have a weapon, to fight the enemy. Gods enemy hates praise. He hates it, so when we praise God, and I say doing this openly, and as often as possible, God enters into the situation, and wards the devil away and takes the spirit of heaviness, and depression from us.
Joy, is replaced with a sense of trust in God, and the victory is ours. The demons leave.
I have learned, and I know, even many of my friends see, I praise God often, but this is my main weapon against the enemy. Prayer and praise to God. I give glory to God, in anything, because I do battle depression.
I have dealt with something, most of my life. And I still have hope God will rectify this situation. I know it needs His hand to make a way, in the provision of it. But what keeps me sane, balanced, and yes joyful, is that my commitment is to Him, with all my being. With all that I can, I pray, praise Him, give Him glory and honor. Maybe now some can understand, why I do it so often.
You see, we have power of life and death in our tongues. Read Proverbs 18:21 King James. When we openly speak, and articulate praise to God, this principle goes in effect, and the victory is ours. I speak this, because it has worked for me. Friends, the “wisdom skill” is this. To avoid depression, speak, and give God glory, as you pray. I know to the atheist, to the unbeliever, this is nonsense.
But to those who believe, the foolishness of this brings the power of God. I don’t care what the atheist, or non-believer thinks. This is my saving grace by Jesus Christ. Knowing Gods Holy word, my King James Bible, is my weapon, my sword of truth, and I trust it with all my being. I daily take Gods word, for strength, and understanding. To know God, to know what pleases Him, and as I do, I find the armor of God is placed on my heart to protect me, with love, for He is love. It protects my mind, no depression is not what I have, as I seek God, and praise Him, with all my being. So yes, I speak glory to God!
Friend, this is a very deep, and profound thing, but if you have problems yes try this, I also recommend you get good spiritual counseling, that is King James Biblically sound, and that you do not walk in the valley of the shadow of death alone. So yes, find help! Pastors, friends, in Christ, and Christian counseling, etc.
Do not give into the temptation to commit suicide. Do not! This is a permanent solution to a problem that can be rectified by Jesus. This is my wisdom key for you, I pray, you find peace, for this is what Christ has promised. I do understand, you, and I know sometimes, you feel there is no hope. But there is. Jesus is that hope.
I understood this, that is why I wrote my two books, How To Have Faith, and Behavioral Curses That Change with Jesus. I understand. I want to help you, even in this brief post. But go to God, go to Him, cry repent, and seek Him, and yes repentance is good for the soul, it is a cleansing. There is so much more, but Jesus is that cure for depression. Much love, Jesus I adore you! And thank you for saving me, and showing me a better way.
God bless you friends, may this Wisdom Skill bring you hope….Elena Ramirez
PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU: NOT AS THE WORLD GIVETH, GIVE I UNTO YOU. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID. JOHN 14:27.
There is a danger to being obsessed with people. And my goodness, I feel such a strong stirring in my heart to write this. I am not sure who it is for, or meant to address, but I will write obedient, as the Holy Spirit prompts me.
Again, I do not know who this is meant for. All my friends, and acquaintances, seem to have a healthy grasp on this. But for whoever it is meant for, I pray you take it to heart.
What makes someone obsessed over someone else? Hmmm. Well I want to list a few scenarios, and then add the Lords thoughts through my thoughts to it.
This could be a spoken obsession, or an obsession, in the mind.
But if it is in the mind, it is part of the spirit. And just a thought but is the spirit from God, or the devil, in its contribution to what you think? You need to see that.
When it is a spoken obsession, it could be because you admire someone and have told them that. It could be that they have rejected you, and so you feel wounded. It could be from an old lover, a friend, or even an enemy. So you think about it, but you think and think, and think about it. Your mind is constantly on that person, and it is unhealthy.
You admire them so greatly, or may even hate them so much in an unhealthy way you could be in danger of “obsessing” to the point, that you cannot handle rejection. Or wanting even to reject them. And you could do something you regret.
You need to see it now.
It could be from someone you know, or someone you see like on television, etc. So you may even stalk them or try to get their attention etc.
When it is an obsession in the mind, you constantly think of them, even though they do not know, and your behavior changes. Where you may try to get their attention even though you do not exist to them, you want to be seen, you want to compete, you want to let them know, you are there.
You want their attention as much as you have given “thought” to them.
Friend, do you sense how unhealthy this is? Maybe you think about someone constantly, and they could care less?
I can only relate this to my own experiences, and I want to share something personal, so maybe it can help someone.
But years ago, I met a man. A very handsome man, and I fell so in love with this man. He never courted me, he frankly was not interested, yet, I began this “obsession” and would think of him, and dream of him, and told him, I loved him. I told him, no one else could love him like I could.
Which at that time, I thought was true. But he did not care, and in fact, he rejected me, and hurt me, so bad, I thought I would die.
I did not, praise God.
You see, I met my husband, and I have had a very fruitful marriage. A holy marriage, where we made Christ first, and where His spirit, has brought us together in holy matrimony.
Which is why even here, if I could briefly put it in words, it is unhealthy to have sex with someone, and link on to that spiritual bondage, in a soul tie. Because it is sin.
Being obsessed with other people is sin, in Gods eyes. They become an idol. And well if you know God, you know He is a jealous God, and this is just one more principle to consider in pleasing Him, and having a healthy spirit.
Is your obsession, turning that person into an idol? Hmmm.
I had put so much energy into this person, for such a long time, it just was not healthy for myself. But I finally saw, that it was never going to happen, and I let go.
That was the healthiest thing I could do for myself. I have been careful since then not to give a lot of attention to anyone in the sense, where I could be in a position to be rejected, or to obsess with them, and have unhealthy expectations.
You know what? Sometimes we think people are the prize. But really if we know who we were in Christ and what we can do, with Christ as the prize, we are in heritage of our Lord through Christ, as sons and daughters of our Lord, with a holy heritage.
We are royalty in Christ, and royalty does not have to beg for people to love us, or where we have to obsess about them. Don’t give yourself away. You are worth more then you know.
Don’t try and manipulate a situation with your obsession. Did you know that is like witchcraft in the eyes of God?
Do you see where I am going with this? Friends, all I know, that God is a jealous God, and if we want to be healthy in our own spirits, we have to learn to give Him all of our attention in the sense, that we do not lose our “balance” in this.
This is why probably some people keep going back to the same type of people, in relationships. Because this is the pattern they have established, not knowing the difference. Oh but with Christ, what a beautiful difference and heritage we can have. This is why obedience to God, can lead to other blessings, yes including love, but ensuring our salvation first.
Where we find a good place yes to love people, but where we reserve a place first for Christ, and then yes for ourselves. Not giving into unhealthy obsessions, where first of all people who see that, can use that to hurt you. Where they would take advantage of you. Use you. Nobody wants to be used, and not even God. Like I said, He is not an ATM machine.
We have to find respect for our own self, to yes love, but not to obsess, or to become someone’s door mat, or find we are being rejected by people. If they have rejected you, respect that, and let it go.
And here is a thought, obsessing with jealousy? Don’t do that. You are worth more then you think. And God is jealous for you.
Seriously, it goes back to when you are young, and trying to make friends for example. I learned the harder I tried to be friends sometimes with people, it turned them off.
No one likes to be intruded on, by someones advances, and when you like people, and want to be friends, it should be mutual. Being a pest etc. This is why obsessing, especially in the mind with people, and just creating thoughts about them is not healthy as well. For there is no foundation in the friendship.
So I reserve to give myself some dignity, in not over doing it, in my efforts.
Friend, again, I do not know who you are, but whatever anyone has done, or not done, you need to let it go. You need to quit thinking about that person, obsessing about them, or even following them, on social media, or where ever.
Let the obsession go, you may be lonely. God understands this, but you need to see the direction of your obsession, and give it to God to help you let go. He can fill that void. That place in your heart that you are spending so much time belongs to God. And only God.
I hope this helps you, whoever you are. Let go and give it to God, be free from obsession. People cannot fill that only God can.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5:17-24, 26 KJV)
I sense Obsessing about others is in this list. Where the spirit struggles with the flesh. Let it go, give it to Christ. Share this link if you think it could help someone.
