TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING…..By Elena Ramirez
If we cannot take a stand for God, in just a little thing. Like not seeing a certain movie, or not going to a place that is notorious, for sin, or accepting people, in our lives who are bad influences.
What kind of stand is that? How can we stand against the enemy in a big thing, if we are not strong against him, in a little thing?
Folks, we can miss it. I am sad today for I see, the little foxes steal the vines…..
We are the vine, growing with Christ, but if we do not submit to Him, we can be cut off.
Don’t we see that? Again. How can we stand against the enemy in big things, if we won’t submit to God even in little things?
And take a stand against that little thing? We ALL have to see this…
Not agreeing with every ones opinion, but having enough wisdom, to know, you don’t need to debate it, or argue about it, or try to make someone understand. To respect the differences.
Or even hit them on the head with the truth. Sometimes, you have to go through a few things to get it.
I think I got it….
Thank you Jesus. You see, love, should always be evident. Without trying to make someone feel bad, or to reject them.
We are all on the vine at different places. I may try to show you truth. But I pray to do it with love, and yes respect. Because you are a child of God, as I am.
Yes, live and learn. Christ said, we would be known by the love. “Let the love shine through, by showing respect or if anything courtesy.”
This is one more new motto…..I will carry as a badge of honor, I pray, to His glory.
BUT THANKS BE TO GOD, WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. I CORINTHIANS 15:57. KJV.
By Elena Ramirez
I base this post on a conversation, I had with someone on social media. Look, there is a misconception about this, and if I can gather lost souls for the Kingdom of God, then Lord use me.
But people are not getting the truth, people are twisting scriptures to justify this, and people have no fear of God, or sense, to stay away from sin, even because of this wrong teaching “once saved is always saved.”
They think grace, will cover it. They think they don’t need the law, to know. Another misconception. Do you really think God flip flopped when He gave the law? Just because Paul talks about not needing the law? He was talking about the law of sin and death. That is the only law we are free from.
See Romans 8:2. KJV. FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
But note how the Psalmist, talks about salvation and the law. It is needed!
I HAVE LONGED FOR THY SALVATION, O LORD: AND THY LAW IS MY DELIGHT. Psalms 119:174.
There have been so many lies spoken, and where the bible they use is even a lie.
There are many scriptures that warn us, THAT ONCE SAVED IS NOT SAVED. Do your own search on words. Search the word “blot” and from a King James, the other versions may not have that reference. A persons name can be blotted out of the lambs book of life. Even in Revelation 22:18-19 it talks about those who change Gods word, will not enter the Kingdom. Look at it!
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.”
Exodus 32:33 KJV
I get weary with those who argue God won’t remove someone’s name from the Lambs Book Of Life. That they think and actually believe they cannot lose their salvation. It’s here folks. I will not argue about Gods holy King James word.
This is why we need just one Holy Bible when we search. To be on the same page with God.
Which many Christians think you are judging them, if you tell them this truth, but you are warning them. Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the “righteous” person. THAT IS A PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE SAVED BUT THEY ARE DECEIVED. Look it up in a King James Bible.
Switch bibles, get a holy anointed King James Bible.
Please look at the scriptures I based this conversation on. They are the true last scriptures Christ gave to warn us. He tells us to be repenting. HE talks about how we received our salvation. But we have grown dull, by not knowing the truth. Many have become neither cold nor hot. He will spit us out! If we don’t get it right! Judgement day is real folks, and we need to get the fear of God, because we all will stand before God. HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL! Get scared, and get the fear of God, because your soul could be lost!
Please get the truth, so you truly can be free in Christ. Repent first, so you can hear the Holy Spirit guide you. Then lead others truly to Christ. But don’t fall for that lie that once saved is always saved. Its not.
‘I know, I was a backslider. And by the grace of God I did not die in those years, I was backslidden. But the only way I got it right was by repenting! And I still repent. I still make mistakes. Which in Gods eyes could be considered sin. Remember His ways are not always our ways. This is scriptural. And I want nothing to do with the enemy. I renounce him, and his deception. Do not be deceived. See the truth. Repent. Renew your vows to Christ. And yes share this. Be a soul winner. For Christ.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
CONVERSATIONS ON ONCE SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED
Yes you are my sister and this is why I warn you in His love. The first thing the Holy Spirit brought to me was to tell you, and others how wrong this teaching is. You have love I see it. But the truth is in His word. Once saved is not always saved. He tells us many will come in His name but they will deceive others with vain words. The wrath of God will be on those who have had no fear of God. This is not taught. We are to fear the one who has power to put our soul in heaven and hell. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. How can that be worked out if one just takes it for granted? That is taking the sacrifice of Christ for granted. His suffering and pain for our sins. NO! Christ told us, many will say Lord, Lord, but HE will say I never knew you. Why? because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. Repentance is the key. Daily repentance even. How many times do we in this world sin? Just by thought or deed. Again I looked at your profile, I saw what Bible you reference. That is not a holy bible. Don’t tell people this! You have love then obey God. Research the KJV scriptures. ASK God to show you. But plz stop misleading people.
“Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
Revelation 3:2-19 KJV
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.
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. REVELATION 1:5-6.
