KNOWING THE DANGER OF ANGER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2112

When I write these posts “Just My Thoughts” or anything I write I usually do it with the goal to help someone, including myself.  Writing is an outlet, a way to express myself, that sometimes I am at a loss of words to speak.  

But when I write, I usually write from experience.  I mean who wants to listen to someone who does not understand, really what is happening, or who wants to listen to someone who may not even have the experience in some matters.  I do have that understanding in anger.  

After all, I am a warrior.  In many ways, I fight.  I fight, for what is right, and I fight for survival.  I fight, if I have to fight.  But in that I have also seen anger rise up in me.  I have seen a side of me, that has lost control.  And actually that is not a very pretty sight for anybody.  Because one can say, or do things, that are irreversible.  One can make some mistakes, that after the fact, will show no self-control.  And regret.  

Regret, is a terrible thing to have, even if you feel God forgives you.  Even if someone else forgives you.  Because if you have no self-control.  You see yourself, the error of not having self-control, and it will grieve you.  I have been grieved.  

And you need self-control.  You need to let the peace of God really rule your heart.  You cannot have that without Jesus.  Seriously.

I understand this.  I understand the anger in me any way.  I may not understand your anger.  But I understand, how hurt, pain, sorrow, no resolution to issues, can affect your spirit.  In anger.  Anger if not checked, can grow, and fester into a fire, that becomes out of control.  

So you need to know yourself.  But more then anything you need to know Jesus.  You need to know what He says about anger, and you need to know if you do not fix this even at a moment like this, where you are maybe at some peace, but you recognize the characteristic in you.  It could get out of control.  You want to be able to see it, stop it even now, and prevent anger.  

The thing with anger, and I have seen that in myself, is that something very trivial can set it off.  Spilled milk.  Seriously, self control has to see the symptoms, to stop it.  To give it to God.  

Yesterday, I was angry, for a moment.  Frustrated, and I cried out to God.  Please help me.  Because I have been dealing with something that has made me angry, for a very long time.  But I have been hiding it.  And yes, I have been dealing with it, but it could have gotten very out of control yesterday, but it did not.  I thank God.

I do not want it to be expressed in anger.  I want it to be expressed knowing God has an answer.  That peace, will rule my heart.  That I have control, because of who Christ is in me.  Just that cry out to God, helped me.  Because I realized, I need Him.  I surrendered myself to Him.  To His authority, to His ways.  To His truth, and love.  And the anger passed.  And to His glory, something happened, I got hope in this matter.  

I want to encourage you.  Because I know who Christ is.  And there is nothing too big, or too small for Him to handle.  He wants to help you.  But you have to let go of that pride, or anger, or self-will that says, I don’t need Him in this.  You do.  Believe me, you do.  We all need Him.  I don’t care who you think you are.  Those attributes you may have, or those characteristics that have been a part of any kind of success, you may have, can be gone.  So you need God. 

He is the only one who can change our hearts, our minds, our souls, our spirits.  Whatever it is friend, He can resolve it for you.  It may not even be in your time, but if you do your part, to begin the process, you will see the progress.  HE sees us, HE knows we need Him.  But we have to do the calling on Him.  He is the King of Kings, and Lord, of Lords.  He has the ability, we just have to submit to Him.  

I hope this helps someone.  I truly believe the Lord has me writing this for someone, who is so on the verge of exploding, that the consequences could be detrimental to your health, to your well being, to someone you love, or even your career.  Don’t let the devil have his way in this.  

Yes, we are all entitled to be angry, now and then, but in that anger, be careful it does not turn into sin.  Or you go to sleep with anger, there are reasons why God warns us not to do that.  

BE YE ANGRY AND SIN NOT:  LET NOT THE SUN GO DOWN UPON YOUR WRATH:  EPHESIANS 4:26.  

Give it to God, even now.  Give Him your anger, and sin not. He will help you.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,  Elena Ramirez

I realize, we are all on the vine, with Christ at different places. I understand, that sometimes, the things I try to present to people, and what people present to me, is not always understood.

Sometimes, when “people” try to preach or even teach me, they are trying to give me milk. Where I may have been there, done that, and now its time, to eat meat. Spiritually, there are some things we have to take as milk, But when we are ready, we are ready to be used by the Lord, and we have discernment. It is meat. Its not judging someone. It is discernment by the Holy Spirit. It is actually having the mind of Christ.

I just have to be careful, not to get caught up in someones snare, or trap, and to test the fruit of someone. We are called to try each other, and I do. And when people challenge me over, and over. I sometimes, will just end the debate. Understanding we are not on the same page, or we are not even hearing each other.

And with discernment, I have seen wolves in sheeps clothing. I am aware that the enemy will try to infiltrate the body of Christ with deceivers. With lies. With confusion. And I won’t play that game. This is why it is so important more then ever we know, what our King James bibles say. Because there are many false prophets. Many that don’t even know the truth, and they defend lies. I have seen it a lot. Christians, that don’t know truth, that are blind, and they defend a lie. Which is very sad.

I Corinthians Chapters 2, 3, and 4 from a King James bible, gives insight. We just have to be careful and humble in the sight of God. Repentance, brings light.

I do reiterate, even from yesterday I only trust God. Trust is something that has to be earned. And I have trusted and been misled, so I am very careful who I trust. Even in the body of Christ. Sad but true.

I HAVE FED YOU WITH MILK, AND NOT WITH MEAT, FOR HITHERTO YE WERE NOT ABLE TO BEAR IT, NEITHER NOW YET ARE YE ABLE.

I Corinthians 3:2.

Sometimes, you have to look and see what makes a good friend.  And sometimes, you have to understand, good friends, need to be loved and appreciated.  Christ does that for me, as my greatest friend.

I know His sacrifice on the cross, and the beatings He took for me, and to pay the penalty of my sins, reminds me, how great a friend He is.

So how can I show Christ, my love, and that I appreciate, His great sacrifice?

It is the Christmas season right now.  And I cannot explain it, but I feel something in the spiritual realm even in my own growth, and understanding, in gratitude, that I just want to stop, and concentrate on Christ more this season.

I get sad, because you know we all like nice things, but the world, people, even other Christians, seem to forget about what this season is all about.  The reason for the season.  And its Jesus!

Sometimes, growth, circumstances, poverty, lack, and yes even an abundance, can make you stop and see, and say.  Is this what it really is all about?

I mean, we can really get caught up in the ways of the world.  We can get caught up, in material things.  The lack of, or the abundance.  Where is the balance?

Right now, I just want to be a good friend to Christ.  More then ever.  I am a Christian, who has been a Christian for a few years now.  And when I made the decision, to give it my all to Christ, I have not turned back.  Yet, daily, I have to work on my relationship with Him.

So, as I ponder on this time of season, and I deal with issues of life, in my own personal life, my families, and I see the world, and I see issues, politically as well, and I see people, and how they feel.  Well, I can get my eyes off of Christ.

And you know, I am just trying to sort it out, even as I write, because life is important.  What you do with your life is important.  How you look at life, and how you deal with situations.  I am not perfect far from it.  But being the old girl that I am now…..I can easily recall, how just searching for God, through Christ, has made a difference for me.  There are so many things though, that I have not accomplished, or done, or been able to do, that can make me stumble.  I don’t want to stumble.

So, I am just sorting my feelings out here, and just knowing how much I need to seek God more so.  So many have the outlook, that you just receive your salvation, and thats it.  You are safe.  But, I don’t see it like that.  I take the scriptures to heart, when it says, work out your salvation with trembling and fear.  I take to heart, that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.  I take to heart….

That I have my part in it.  I have to discipline myself sometimes, I have to bring it all to the obedience of Christ.

And maybe you can relate to this, maybe not.  But I actually get jealous, and angry for God, when people deny Him.  When they say terrible things about God, when they mock Him.  When they ignore Him……So I take this to heart….

I have to….right now I have to.  I am not sure what I am feeling.  Maybe it is sorrow, we did have a death in our family.  Maybe it is a sense, that nothing is forever, unless it is with God.  I am sad, this family member was so young.  Why did it have to happen?

But even through this I know the answer is to press into God more! Not less, I can never pull back in who I am in Christ.  Even if I am sad.  Even if I cannot control my own opportunities.  I know God can.  So, I just want to press into God more.

A friend asked, recently, when do you feel more alive? (sweet Narita, maybe she will read this)  And my answer was:  In all honesty, when I am close to God!  And that is the ultimate truth for me, when I am.  He is the way, the truth and the life.  I know that!  And I know what life was like without Him.  That was not life.  That was being like the walking dead.  So no, I will not pull back, no matter what I am feeling.  Because He fills my cup with life, in Him, as I live move, and have my being.

I don’t know all the answers.  And I do not pretend to know.  But I just sense right now, how precious life is, and in Christ.  I don’t know you, or your situation.  I don’t know what you are feeling, or going through.  But, I do know there is a God.  I know it with all my being.  More so, then I did yesterday.  You see, everyday I have to search for God.  And every day, I find Him, when I search.

Today is no different.  Just that I find Him, in different ways.

His love, compels me to search.  And I don’t want to be legalistic.  But, I know there are ways, to reach Him, according to His excellence.  I suppose this is one other reason why I am adamant about using only a King James bible.  Purity, preservation, something about going back to the old way of doing something, opposed to modern techniques, or technology.  Seeking God.  By prayer, the greatest way of communicating to a King.  My friend, my Lord, my savior.

Jesus, is my greatest friend.  And I just have a sense, more then ever, how precious His friendship is to me.  But I have my part…..

And I guess, this is just a little rant of my own, to sort it all out, but I think of who God is, and His patience.  I also see, what His word says, His warnings.  His anger, as well, and I see how history even in the word of God, tells us, who God is, and what He expects.  The fear of God is healthy for a soul.

I don’t know, I just want to grow, but I want to do it Gods way.  And what good is life, if we don’t grow, in who the creator intended us to be?  Its life, lets live it for His glory.  Or what counts?  I just want to make a difference.  In my own life, and yes in others.  But we have to see, we have to know, we have to try…..

TO HIM WHO ALONE DOETH GREAT WONDERS: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER.  Psalm 137:4

Just a thought today, Elena Ramirez  Merry Christmas….

Yes, there is a difference between judging a matter, and knowing right from wrong.  Yes, I question authority.  I question it in all aspects, and I do not always take what someone says as truth, unless it is according to Gods Holy word.  My King James Bible.

Recently, a very high profile ministers wife, said something very disturbing.  And I question it.  Some might say, I was judging.  Some might say, “touch not my anointed”.  Some might even say the devil is an accuser.  But when you know right from wrong, I question authority.

I know what the scripture says.  And in my heart, first and foremost, I want to please God.  Not man, not people, and not myself, as this high profile ministers wife said.  And implied strongly.  That is self.  That comes from the devil.  Self- is always a characteristic from the devil.  “Do good for your own self” as she said… Is the way of the world thinking. 

This kind of thinking is thinking in the flesh, and not in the spirit.  The spirit of the Holy spirit.  It is a spirit that comes from hell itself.  And we have to be mindful, of carnal thinking.  

And it is not bad to do good for yourself.  My problem, and that what I considered was bad in knowing right from wrong, was that it undermined God, as if He was a second thought, to be obedient. As if making ourselves happy, was the priority.  Those were her words.  Look for the video, by these key words to know the difference, but I won’t list it.  

But what He wants is obedience, because we love Him first and foremost, the fear of God, as I share in my scripture below.  And not believing every “Feel good message” because again that is demonic.

And that was what was wrong.  Oh friend, giving God glory, and putting our own thinking to the side, makes the difference.  I know the spirit of it, and I know when we try to put ourselves first, and make God an after thought, as she implied, its wrong.

Am I judging, no I am trying to teach someone, who might  not know Gods word, to know the difference.  So I question it.  If I was judging, I would give a sentence, or a fine to pay, like in some religions.  God almighty, will have the final word, and be the judge in this matter, and all matters for that consideration.

We are judged by our words.  And either our words will justify us, or condemn us.  The words that she spoke, will either justify or condemn her.  And the thing is, people do not realize that when we speak, we are either being judged, to either be justified or condemned.  One cannot just say something, and not have it considered, as either right or wrong.  

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:  and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned.  Matthew 12:34-36.  

Another reason, why I only choose King James words, because there is too much corruption in other Bible versions, where meanings are distorted.  I want Gods holy word, the purest form by the King James, that has not been revised.  So I can know Gods heart.  Judging, no? But knowing right from wrong.  Am I judging someone even publishers, who have revised Gods holy word and saying they are evil? No I am saying in this teaching moment, that I know the difference as right and wrong.  This is why I make the distinction, even in passing.

I am not judging it, I am questioning, why would you say this? Because it was wrong.   When we have the privilege to be in contact with others, we have a responsibility to know Gods Holy word.  I know my King James Bible, and I do question authority.  

I have been in situations where authority, misunderstood, and even judged me.  I think of Christ in this example, and how the Pharisees misunderstood Him.  They judged the Son of God.  Christ knew right from wrong.  And He was the living example of the truth.  Even Pilot said, what is truth?  No one taught Him truth.  Christ would have if He had the time.  So I use my time, now, to teach this distinction.  

We have a responsibility, to know Gods word.  No excuses in this world is worth putting this precious gift aside, so we are not deceived.  Yes when you know the difference, you are not judging.  You know right and wrong.  The devil is always twisting scripture, to make it seem like a person is. And judge not, is one place that he does.  And there are so many ways the enemy can deceive someone.  And the enemy uses people in authority, and people who are “wolves in sheeps clothing.”

But if I can even spare someone and say no, like I did in this situation, this is not judging.  I am trying to teach someone that there are some things that are just wrong.  This was a teaching moment, not a judging moment to say…God is always the priority.

Gods word, is first and foremost, and its not that difficult to comprehend.  If you make God your first priority, the rest will follow.  The blessings, the understanding, the knowledge.  But if you put self first as this woman implied, you are doing your own soul a disservice.

Be not wise in your own eyes, but fear God, if you fear God, you take to heart what the Holy spirit says to you.  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.  Proverbs 3:7.

And it told me as I read that, that is wrong!  I did not judge, I saw the lies of the enemy, and I know right from wrong.  And I did it, to warn others, because God loves them and because right is right, and wrong is wrong.  This was a teaching moment for me to use truth to warn others.  And like a good friend of mine, whose opinion and mine seem at odds with one another said, that “It is kind of hard to defend someone, when they should know the truth.  But Christ can defend her, and this is what we pray for as she learns the truth.  Because the enemy, wants all of us to be in confusion, and her being in a high profile place, makes it look like she should know better, but she does not in this instance.  

I pray for this woman, for she should know the difference.  I pray, her eyes are opened.  I pray she repents.  I pray she makes a wrong right, and sees the difference.  Will I name her?  No the moment has passed, but maybe someone will show her this, to show her, God is always the priority, not self.

Yes, I question authority, and I recommend you do too.  Not only to learn, but to know the difference, but you my friend, get into Gods word, a good King James bible and know it for yourself.  So you can please God, not people, not even yourself first, but God.  

And as I am about to close, I also want to make the effort to say I love this ministry.  This man of God, and His wife.  I do.  I have gone to see them and tuned in.  I have not always agreed with their methods. Especially when it comes to watering down the gospel.  But I have loved them.  And I still do.  

You see, when I say all this, I say it because if we love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, you want them to grow.  Because they have access to make a difference in the body of Christ.  And really, its all for Gods glory, if we do it in love.  So I hope I am forgiven too, but again, my heart is to please God, first and foremost.  

 And I share all of this humbly, because I am not always right.  But God is.  And when I make Him the priority totally, I can be right, and I can know the difference, without judging.  I can understand.  And this is what we all need to do to grow.

Blessings, and love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.  Romans 1:21-22

And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.  For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit have judged already, as though, I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed.  In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ.  To deliver such an one unto satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the spirit of the Lord Jesus.  Your glorying is not good.  Know ye not that a little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump?  Purge out therefore the old leaven that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.  For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.  I Corinthians 5:2-7.  

Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee:  and let such as love Thy Salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.  Psalm 70:4.  

Declare His glory among the heathen, His wonders among all people.  For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised:  He is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the nations are idols:  but the Lord made the heavens.  Honor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.  Psalm 96:3-6

For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth:  Thou are exalted far above all gods. Ye that love the Lord, hate evil:  He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.  Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart.  Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.  Psalm 97:9-12

 

IN MINISTRY? USE THE KING JAMES SCRIPTURES ~ HERES WHY! ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word.  His true word the King James.  Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith....http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  new lower prices.

True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word. His true word the King James. Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith….http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com new lower prices.

Dear Friends, in Christ,

I write this as a letter, but as one of my posts, I want to encourage you, to pray, and write the word of God, from the King James Bible.  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.  Deuteronomy 6:9.

I specify the King James scriptures, because I truly believe the anointing, and holiness, are in these Bible verses.  There are so many compromises to scripture, that the anointing is gone I believe from these other versions.  And I know this is very controversial to some, who are searching for understanding.  But, when you take a scripture, that was originally based on the King James scripture, and convert it, something is lost there, and I do believe it is the holiness, and the anointing.  Remember the King James has been preserved for 400 years.  The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.   Psalm 12:6-7.

Changing it turns into part truth, and part lie.  Remember what God says and in so many scriptures.  TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY: IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  ISAIAH 8:20.  

I do look at that.  And in this time and place of my ministry, I am a truth seeker.  I look at the fruit of ministries, I have grown that much.  I don’t take their word for it.  I take the true word of God, to validate truth.  I see so many compromising truth, that there are many ministries I won’t support, nor will I advocate to others, and in fact, I run from them.

Think of these words, from God, and know the truth….II Timothy 4:2-5  Preach the word be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves, teachers having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and they shall be turned unto fables.  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.  

Now, I just sense, that there are so many out there, who love God, and want to please God, and yet they need the power of scripture to build a foundation.  When you share word, King James scripture, there is an anointing, that speaks for itself.  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:  it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  Isaiah 55:11

One thing people can say about me, is for the most part, whenever I have a thought, I build that thought with a King James scripture.  I give that as a foundation.  Because lets be honest, without it, I would be like any other minister or pastor, who does not.  Look around, and see, that many do not share scripture, and without that, its just meaningless, our thoughts, without a foundation.  This separates us from wolves in sheeps clothing.

And I am not just talking about listing a scripture reference, I am talking about writing the entire verse out.  Doing this, sharpens your sword of truth, as well.  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?  John 5:47.  

If you want to be set apart to do the “true” work of God, you need to do some research.  If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.  I Corinthians 14:37.

You need to get a good concordance, that supports a King James Bible, and take the time, to look the scripture up, to add to your thought, and to build a foundation.  And in this time of technology, get a good King James Bible app.

This is time consuming.  I won’t deny that.  But as Christians, we cannot get lazy, nor passive, if we really do want to make a difference for God.  You need to start writing your thoughts out, with the Holy word of God, to support, your thoughts, that God will give you.  Even if you just search for a scripture, and write it on your social media pages, you are changing the spiritual realm, with Gods holy word.  Don’t let the world dictate to you this is wrong.  Whose report will you believe in?Who hath believed our report?  and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  Isaiah 53:1

As you do that, you are bringing light, to a dark world.  You are bringing truth, and no one can deny the word of God.  No matter what anybody says…the word stands on it’s own, and cannot be shaken.  It is truth.  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:  bind them about thy neck:  write them upon the table of thine heart.  Proverbs 3:3

And if you need answers to prayer, same thing.  Look up a scripture for your need.  Don’t get lazy in this.  For healing, finances, etc.  Studying the word of God, will stick with you, and you may not remember every single word.  But it will kick in.  We are to “pray without ceasing”….I Thessalonians 5:17.  For it is sanctified by the word of God, and prayer.  I Timothy 4:5.  And God will honor his word.

Yes, I do recommend trying to memorize scripture, but when you pray the word of God, when you write it, when you memorize it, you have a foundation for your own needs.  When you write it, the truth is you are sowing the word!  The sower soweth the word.  Mark 4:14.

I am so surprised, myself, that I have done this, but it comes to me, it gives me discernment, it gives me understanding, it connects me with the Holy Spirit, to know truth.  And in this, I give glory and praise to God, for He guides my life.  I have been writing for years, but He taught me that from the beginning.  Stablish Thy word unto Thy servant, who is devoted to Thy fear.  Psalm 119:38.  And yes, I do fear God.  It is health and life….The fear of the Lord tendeth to life:  and he that hath it shall abide satisfed: he shall not be visited with evil.  Proverbs 19:23.

If you want to be different in your ministry, and just as a Christian, start doing this now, and very soon, you will grow.  I do have a faith, and trust in God, that at this point of my life, I see the fruit of it.  I see, that with God all things are possible.  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.  Luke 18;27.

That does so very much for my faith.  I understand my Lord, in so many ways.  And there are things, I may not understand, but I know, that I know God is a holy God, and He has his ways, His principles, His truth.  Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be Holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.  Leviticus 19:2

I wrote in my last post, that yes, God is legalistic.  We have to know His heart in such matters.  Sloppy religion, grace based only on one part of doctrine, will not cut it.  You need the truth, and I hope, this post, of a letter, will encourage you, to write and pray Holy scripture from the King James Bible, so you can grow.  And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and the cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.  Joshua 8:34.

So you can make a difference to a world, that so needs Jesus Christ.  Please remember this and apply it, begin…. Finally my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.  To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.  Philippians 3:1.  

Do it because of your own salvation.  I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord, and thy law is my delight.  Psalm 119:174.

And with this last thought from God, as you finish reading this….remember this promise from God.  For it is a promise.  Let someone see you writing His word.  Let someone, who needs a promise from your own writings, let them see the promise from God.  More then anything, yes anything, let God see you writing His word!

You can make a difference for yourself, and for someone else, as you write and pray the Holy word of God….Share this post, as a start….

THEN SAID THE LORD UNTO ME, THOU HAST WELL SEEN:  FOR I WILL HASTEN MY WORD TO PERFORM IT.  Jeremiah 1: 12.

Much love, in Christ, with His thoughts….Elena Ramirez

THE SPIRIT OF CONFUSION AND VOICE FROM YOUR COUNTERFEIT BIBLE ~ IS YOUR BIBLE RADIO STATIC?~ (NOT IF YOUR BIBLE IS A KING JAMES BIBLE)


Counterfeits – counterfeit |ˈkountərˌfit|adjectivemade in exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intention to deceive or defraud : two men were remanded on bail on a charge of passing counterfeit $10 bills. See note at spurious .• pretended; sham : the filmmakers created a counterfeit world using smoke and mirrors.nouna fraudulent imitation of something else; a forgery : he knew the tapes to be counterfeits.

An explanation, as to what this word means.  But, do Christians, or those searching for God, take it to heart?  Only God, can reach the heart.  But how can one hear Gods true voice?  And discern a counterfeit?  To truly, know, what is truth.  I believe, I know God’s voice, and I know His truth, and the difference between His truth, and a counterfeit.

When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto His voice;  For the Lord thy God is a merciful God; He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy Fathers which he sware unto them.  Deuteronomy 4:30-31.

Our world is in tribulation.

We as believers, more so, should be in tune, to the voice of the Lord.  In these times of tribulation.  I believe we are in tribulation.  There is great unrest, in this world we live in.  Yes, as Christians, we should not be confused, or deceived, or unaware, of truth….but many are.  And I hate to say this, but they cannot grow, to be who they should be, because many, are no more ahead, so to speak on the vine with Christ, because they are not sure of Gods true voice.  They have accepted a counterfeit voice.

Christ told us, that His followers, His true followers, would know His voice, and to another, they would not follow.

Verily, verily I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief, and a robber.  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.  To him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them and the sheep follow him, they know his voice.  And a stranger will they not follow but flee from him:  for they know not the voice of strangers.  John 10:1-5.

I propose to you, here, as you see this scripture, that any other Bible version, then the King James Bible, is a strangers voice.  And whoever is using another Bible, is not hearing Gods true voice.  With clarity, and with true discernment.

Shocking huh?  Well thats the way I see it.  I see it this way, because I do not know the “strangers” voice, who sat in an office, and took the King James Bible, and added a word here, changed a word here, deleted a word here, and totally changed the context, to become a “voice” that is now the authority, as the Bible.  I see it this way, because I do know my Lords voice, and it is distinct, and clear, and the confusion is gone.  I see it this way, because before I stopped using the King James Bible only, I would get mixed-signals.  Part truths.  It was like hearing Gods voice with static on the radio.  Sometimes, the message came in, and sometimes it did not.  Sometimes, I heard things, I should not have heard, because there was interference.  The devil was trying to block the word, and He knew I did not have the right Bible.

Only God knows the heart.  How do I know, that whoever was in authority, to change the Bible, from these publishing houses, to revise it, had the same intention, as God did?

Especially knowing, Revelation 22:18-19.  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  

There is a curse in that word.  That in itself, puts the fear of God in me, and tells me not to be a part of that curse, by purposely reading, applying, meditating on, praying, etc.  anything, that takes away or adds from Gods word!!!!!  

Knowing, we are not to add, or take away from Gods word!  Why can’t people see this?  

The King James Bible, has been established for over four hundred years. In 1611, the King James bible, was established.  And it has been in print, for over four hundred years.  Making it the most, read, and authorized Bible for centuries.  So why not trust its authenticity?  Why?  Because people think the revisions, will give them clarity for understanding.  Instead, it defeats the purpose, because only God, can give interpretation.  By His Holy Spirit.  II Peter 1:20.  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  Here the Lord, specifies in His word, that no one can interpret it, but again by His Holy Spirit. You have to see this by His truth.

Who is as the wise man?  and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing?….  V2 I counsel thee to keep the King’s commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.  Be not hasty to go out of his sight:  stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.

Do I want to call other Bible versions evil?  No.  Only because the word of God is part there.  But it reminds me of a radio, or an instrument, that has a tap on it.  Or where it has been tampered with, and the signals are not clear.  But I do not trust, the holiness, to be there.  Or the power of God, to do great things.  Because man’s carnal hands have changed the wording.

There is a lot of history, that gives an explanation, of the many revisions, translations etc.  But…You don’t think, or know, that God knew, that in the future, men, would take His Holy word, and avert it?  Changing it, so they could have copyrights?  Knowing they would claim copy rights.  To change it, at any whim, and yes, for the sake of money.  He wants you to see the root, of why they have changed it.

Why doesn’t the King James Bible have copy rights?  Because it is preserved.   Psalm 12:6-7.  The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.  

I truly believe, with all my being, God is testing those who will seek Him through His true word.  He is looking for those who will teach through His true word, the King James version.  etc.  I believe God is looking for people, who can see through the facade of other Bible versions.  That they put one and one together, and see the discrepancies.

Why would anyone trust, a source, to believe, that another Bible is authentic.  When, Gods word, says over and over again, to beware of those who would change it.

Whose voice are you listening to?  When you read another Bible version?  Gods voice, or the voice, of someone who took the word of God changed it, rearranged it, modified it, deleted some of it, and who are these people?  Whats their agenda?  Are they Christians, scholars, atheists?  hmmmm.

This is something, you need to ask yourself as well?  Whether you believe me or not, but I think it should be addressed.  I think, a person, needs to search God even in prayer, to ask Him.  Is this the Bible you want me to read?

It is God’s voice, you are searching for, when you read your Bible.  It is Gods voice, that you will automatically know, when your Bible is the King James Bible.  Can you tell the difference?  Even here I challenge you to test the Bibles.  Read the King James, for a while.  I know the difference.  Between Christs voice, and a stranger.  And I will not follow a  strangers voice.  This is not just history, or documentation, it is Gods voice.  Gods truth, Gods ways, to show us how to live.

But do you know Gods voice?  Are you listening?  Are you confused?  Only you can answer this.

When you see a prayer, or a commandment, this is God saying, this is what I expect, this is what I want to hear as well.  But how do you know whats missing?  In my studies, I have found countless scriptures missing.  From the other Bible versions.  What if it was a word, you needed? God wants your mind, and heart, and yes voice, to be in tune to His voice, and mind, so you can know what is acceptable in His sight.

But if you are reading, any other Bible, it is part truth.  It is no longer pure.  Yes, I know, the Bible has been transposed, and changed many times, but God has said enough!

I write this, also as a testimony.  And I have to be honest here, because it does attest to my belief, that we as Christians should only use the King James Bible.  For a few years, in my Christian walk, with Christ, I experienced, a time of confusion.  Thoughts would come to me, thoughts of confusion.  Thoughts of doubt, thoughts, of fear, thoughts that sometimes, I have to admit, were unholy.

And I wondered, where did that come from?  Why was I thinking these thoughts?  Should I not, be as a Christian, stronger, able to have a greater peace?  What was it?  I would try to battle these thoughts on my own accord.  But when I discovered two years ago, the discrepancies, from the Bible versions, and I switched Bibles, to read only the King James Bible, my confusion stopped.  My thinking took on the mind of Christ.  It took on, truth, and faith, and hope, and love, from almighty God.

I have no other explanation, but what the Lord showed me even recently.  That people get a spirit of confusion, and this is where the devil blinds them, and they cannot get victories, healings, blessings, etc. because the wording is wrong.  But their minds were blinded:  for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament:  which veil is done away in Christ.  II Corinthians 3:14.  Only Christ, can show you the truth, by His voice, as you go back to read the old testament, along with the new testament, of the King James Bible.

God can only honor His word.  His true word. Jeremiah 1:12 Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten My word to perform it.    

This tells me, GOD will, honor His word.  When I apply it to a prayer, a need, He keeps his promises.  He is not a liar!

But,when people, do not read the King James Bible, they are subject for attack in the mind.  The battle is in the mind.  Remember, we are searching for Gods spirit.  But knowing that carnal hands, have revised Gods word, they have polluted it.  How can anyone victoriously win a battle, with a Bible, that has been touched by carnal hands?  To be carnally minded, is death, the word of God says.  Read Romans 8.  But when Gods word, that two-edged sword, is in place, it combats the enemy.  Thats the only explanation I have.

Well, in sharing with you, I believe, I also have a remedy, and a solution, a tool, for those who are willing to use Gods Holy word, the King James Bible.

I submit to you now, that there is a tool, for those who need, or long for Hebrew, and Greek translations.  There is no Bible out in the market right now, that I have seen, where you can readily go and buy that is the original text, from the Greek and Hebrew translation.  But the King James Bible, does have a tool, that can be used, with it.  A concordance.

Recently, I found STRONG’S EXHAUSTIVE CONCORDANCE OF THE BIBLE.  It has every key word, from the King James Bible for reference.  But what makes this particular concordance, book very appealing is that it has updated, Hebrew, and Greek dictionaries, to find the definitions of each word from the original language, to give more depth, for understanding.

But one cannot use any of the Bible versions, but the King James Bible, as a guideline, due again, to the transposing of the words, and the meanings are totally different.  I highly recommend it, not only for the Greek and Hebrew dictionary.

I recommend it highly,  because we are in a time, where we need to meditate on Gods word, more and more.  We need to sharpen our being, our senses, memorizing, and learning Gods word, it is so needed.

Yes, I am careful, as I conclude here, to try myself, to only search for Gods pure word. To be aware of counterfeits, to be aware, that if I want Gods power, in my mind, and in my life, for all my needs, and to be conscious of what Gods will is, I have to discern, and choose wisely, Gods truth.

I must choose it above mans attempt to create Gods word……

I will not compromise, Gods truth, to please anyone.  But God is who I must please, and to hear His voice clearly, I just know, that I know, the King James Bible is the Bible, I believe God wants us to use.  To know Him, and to know His power, that is available.  I share this truth, I believe, but it is up to you.

I am adamant about this.  It is not up for debate, or argument.  This is what I choose, I am only here to make you think about it, and pray about it.  You choose.  I do not judge you, but I share this, so you can seek God, to find the truth?

Do you really want to use a Bible, that has been altered, that may give you a spirit of confusion, with part truth, and part lies from the revisions, that is a counterfeit, and is not the voice of God?  You can get a new radio.  It is called…THE KING JAMES BIBLE.

I highly recommend it.

Contact me, to give a lecture on this subject, at your local church, congregation, or ladies group.

WARNING! IS YOUR PRIORITY IN GOD OR MONEY? (Looking through the Prosperity Message) ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


THE LAW OF THE LORD IS PERFECT, CONVERTING THE SOUL:  THE TESTIMONY OF THE LORD IS SURE, MAKING WISE THE SIMPLE.  THE STATUTES ( not statues) OF THE LORD ARE RIGHT, REJOICING THE HEART, THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD IS PURE, ENLIGHTENING THE EYES.  THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS CLEAN, ENDURING FOR EVER; THE JUDGMENTS OF THE LORD ARE TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS ALTOGETHER.  MORE TO BE DESIRED ARE THEY THAN GOLD, YEA, THAN MUCH FINE GOLD:  SWEETER ALSO THAN HONEY AND THE HONEYCOMB.  MOREOVER BY THEM IS THY SERVANT WARNED:  AND IN KEEPING OF THEM, IS GREAT REWARD.  Psalm 19:7-11

The goal, of my writing this, is to “warn” the body of Christ.  It makes me sad, to do so, but I must be obedient to the Lord.  I am sad, because recently, I received a notification, on Facebook, to attend a “Millionaires Seminar.”  From a very, prominent, ministry.

I could say, the name, of the ministry, I could even point fingers.  And go so far, to “warn” one specifically.  But, I do not feel led to be the accuser, of the brethren.  Thats something, the devil, would do.  Revelation 12:10. By pointing out, and marking them publicly.  I am not into trying to hurt anyone.  Quite the contrary, because I am in fear of God, and I am concerned for the body of Christ, I am writing about this.

But what bothered me, was the advertising of this particular seminar, they were having.  It was a seminar, for “millionaires.”  But, it came from a prominent ministry.  The hairs on my neck rose, and I admit, I got angry.  God is not a respecter of persons.  Millionaires?  Your kidding right?

This logo, graphic, did not advocate, anything about Christ, or God, or love, or that it was a ministry.  And from the perspective, of not knowing who this ministry was.  The person, if not acquainted, with this pastor, who would see this particular graphic, would not know, it was from a ministry.  It had the markings of something from the perspective of the world.

In other words, because it was so blatantly specific, about the millionaires seminar, how could it be identified with a ministry?  Yet it was.  It was sent out from the ministry, with this pastors photo, for the whole world, to know, they were having a seminar.  A millionaires seminar, to be specific.

I admit, I am tired, of the “prosperity” message going out as strong as it does.  I am not against prosperity.  I am not against, giving, or supporting ministries.  I am sad, and upset, because, the prosperity message, is no longer, making God the priority.  It is no longer, making the priority of the gospel, to save souls.

You can ask anyone, especially non-Christians, and they will say, they do not listen to pastors, because what they hear, from the pulpit, or on television, is send in your money.  I know ministries, need money to send the message out.  But the message of the gospel, is not going out.  Souls are falling, by the wayside.  They are being lost, because no one is truly telling them about Christ.  About God, and obeying Him.  That He loves us all.  That if we seek Him, we can find our way, and that all things are possible.  But instead, the focus is on the giving, and the prosperity.

So, I will tell you here, seek God. For who He is, and not what He can give you!  Do this first, before you ask Him, for anything.  Make Him the priority, for just His presence.  For His sweet fellowship.  Wanting to please Him.  He gave at the cross, that was the greatest thing, He could give any of us.  The rest is icing on the cake, but its not about that, its about knowing Him, loving Him, developing your relationship with Him.  Because His sacrifice was so great, that He took the penalty of sin, for us.  And we all sin, do not be deceived.  He is a person.  A good, and Holy person.  The son, of God.  My savior.  And I don’t know of anyone, who wants to be friends with someone, just because of what they can give, or get!

I watch plenty, of Christian television, and there are a few, who share the gospel.  They make “God” the priority.  There is a balance, in asking, for money.  Or making an emphasis, to give, to be blessed.  Sharing truth, about tithing, offerings etc.

But, when you see a logo, or graphic like I did, that eludes, to millionaires, that is the prosperity message, that is exclusive, for those who want to be millionaires.  That bothers me.  Again, God is not a respecter of persons.  Because, it gives the gospel, a bad name.  I don’t want to be identified, with those kind of ministries.

Years ago, in fact, I had wrote to this pastor.  I was seeking help.  Because as a Christian writer, I so related, to what this pastors message was, at that time.  He had a phenomenal anointing, to be honest.  But his message, was not on prosperity, then.  It was wisdom, that I related to.

In any event, I wrote this pastor, and sent him, many examples of my writings, asking for guidance, help, prayer, support, and I was totally ignored.  I did not receive, any help.  I did not receive, even the courtesy, of acknowledging me, and my dilemma.

Instead, I was put on their mailing list, and asked to give.  To make an offering.  I guess, it bothered me, because I had actually made my mailing a registered letter.  I did not want to get lost in the flow of general mail.  I wanted to be recognized, to receive the courtesy, of a specific answer, to the specific request I had made, for help in my letter.  I learned a lesson from that.  I do not ask anyone to help me.  I ask God, and only God.  If He brings someone to help me, so be it.  If it is His will, it will happen, but if it does not its o.k.  Why? Because my relationship with Him, is my first priority.  My walk has to be clean, and not distorted, because of money.  If He blessed me, I believe, I know who I am in Christ first, but I will not make the emphasis, of serving Him, as to what He gives me, its about truth.  His truth….

So am I holding a grudge, because I am bringing it up here?  No, I am not, or I pray I am not.  But the proof is in the pudding.  I walk in love, and I understand again, giving, but the balance, is so way off, with some of these ministries, and that is why I am warning the body of Christ.

To be careful, in who you support.  To be careful, that the motive from yourself, and the ministry, is not based on what God can give you.  But who God is.  In other words, get to know who God is by His word.  What he expects of you.  Of me.  Develop your relationship with God, by Christ.  Remembering what Christ has done for us.

Do you remember, Christ himself, went into the temple, and turned the tables, on those who had used the temple, for the sole purpose of getting money? And they come to Jerusalem; and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.  And He taught, saying unto them, IS IT NOT WRITTEN, MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED OF ALL NATIONS THE HOUSE OF PRAYER?  BUT YE HAVE MADE IT A DEN OF THIEVES.    MARK 11:15-17.  

This infuriated Christ.  And it should infuriate us, as well, so much that we tell our pastors; Hey, your talking too much about money, and not enough, about souls.  About salvation, about seeking God, to please him.  By obeying Him, by honoring Him.

So yes, I wrote on that post, that it was wrong.  Did it go well?  I don’t know, I was challenged there, I was even judged, that I did not honor God, or that I did not tithe.  They totally missed the point, that I tried to bring, that the advertising said it all.  This was for millionaires.  A millionaires seminar.  And that is just wrong!

I think if Christ, was here on earth right now, he would have told that ministry;

I am turning the tables on you.  How dare you make it about millionaires?  When I gave my life, on the cross, for you, and the world, and this is the focus you make?  This is your advertising?  How dare you, taint, the gospel, for the sake of money, and for millionaires only.  The world needs me, and you have distorted the truth, for the sake of money.  You have lost, why you have come to me.  You have lost, the focus, in pleasing me.  You have made this dirty, as your emphasis is on money.  You have given the devil a place, by making money, your idol.  And turned from my truths.   

These prosperity messages, all have a method to them.  A system, that yes, does use truth, but twisting it, and when they take scripture, and they only elude to prosperity, but not what Christ is sharing, about obeying God, about loving Him, and others, I am telling you.  Walk away from this kind of church.  Walk away.

We need to find pastors, who are willing, to put God first, not the prosperity message.  This is my warning, because I truly believe we are in end times, and the devil, has made camp in the body of Christ.   Sad to say, but its true.  There are so many people in ministry, who are truly wolves, in sheeps clothing.  I am constantly testing the spirit, of ministries, and those who I come in contact with.  And I do extend grace, but when I see, something wrong, its hard for me, to accept them, when they know not the truth, of the gospel.

And you better know what Gods word says.  You better know, truth, according to the word of God. Get in your Bible.  Do your own research.  When someone says, oh thats not what the word of God means, and they try to justify sin, or totally are off balance, from what God says, I get concerned.  I am so concerned now for the body of Christ.  And as I said, I am in fear of God.

For the record, I have learned, and I am grateful, where God has led me.  I am grateful, for each and every one of my blessings.  But I do not seek God for what He gives me, I seek Him, because He is Holy.  He is God almighty, He has power, to give me life, or take it away.  He is the final judge, to determine, whether I go to heaven or hell.  Do, I want to play around with that?  You would have to be nuts spiritually, to just let that go. But thats why it is so important, to get the mind of Christ, for any kind of sin, will take it away.  If one does not repent.  I fear God, because I never want His presence to leave me, because I would make something else, like money, a priority.  Thats why I ask, in this title, Is your priority in God or money?

I admit, I was lost.  I was naive.  But, one could be naive, like I was, and trusting, these ministries, pastors etc.  But greed, is evil.  And one needs to see, this, to be forewarned.

In the United States, we are blessed anyway.  But for how long?  God is not mocked.  And,when ministries reach out to other, countries, and they start preaching the prosperity message, so many say, you mean, if I give, I can drive a nice car?  I can have a house?  I can feed my family?

And they give people hope, as they implement this method.  But instead, they are missing the whole picture of who we are, in Christ, and the way, we are to seek God.  The word of God says, Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

Not seek how to give, to get rich.  To become a millionaire. My husband, put it in perspective this way.  That many of these ministries, are only trying, to build their castle.  To maintain, their way, of living.  As they hop along in jets, and live in lavish castles.

You know, any of us would like to be rich.  Thats why it is scary.  But making that the priority, in seeking God, for wealth only, is opening a door to the devil.  Remember, when Christ was tempted by the devil, and the devil said, serve me, and I will give you the riches of the world.  Matthew 4:9-19.  And saith unto Him, all these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.  Then saith Jesus unto Him, GET THEE HENCE SATAN; FOR IT IS WRITTEN THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE.  Jesus, even there, reminds us its the word of God we need to know, and He bound the devils words.  We have that authority too….

To miss truth, to miss, what Christ did, by making money a priority…..It actually would scare me.  Because I want my relationship with my Lord, to never be tainted.  I want to be delivered from temptation, thats why I take this scripture to heart.  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.  James 1:14.

Money can be enticing.  I have come so far, from who I was, to recognize, greatly what Christ did, on the cross.  My salvation….It is sacred, it has to be protected.   Our wants, our hopes, must be in Christ, first, and foremost.  The body of Christ needs to open their eyes.  Remembering those who fell even Judas, betrayed God for thirty stinking pieces of silver.  Do you want that kind of spirit, upon you?  Times are short.  We will all stand before God.  What will He say?  Please, take this to heart.  Please, be careful.  Please, see, truth…..Please be warned.

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

Just my thoughts….

Father, obedient I write this, obedient I share it.  Obedience, I long to be obedient, to please you.  For who you are.  For Love, for fellowship, with you.  I am so grateful for my blessings, but I do not want to make anything an idol.  I do not want to lose my perspective.  Help us Lord, help us, the body of Christ, needs to open our eyes.  To see, its about souls.  Its about your truth, many are lost, because your shepherds, have lost their focus.  They are caught up, in the prosperity message.  They have lost their way, and that being by Christ.  Lord, share this message, with who you will, may it bring perspective, and truth, to seek you again, with all our hearts, our soul, and to save the lost, for hell is real.  What will you tell us, when we stand before you?  Lord, have mercy.  Deliver us from shams, for this is shameful.  Have mercy, and help us all, remind each other, you are not mocked.  And to share truth, from your gospel.  Help the body of Christ Lord.  In Jesus name.  Amen
