WHY COMMUNICATION IS SO IMPORTANT AS A CHRISTIAN BUT IN LIFE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4575.jpgI feel led to write about communication.  With one another, with God, with others, and as a Christian, I feel I am more indebted to try and communicate.

Most of my problems I have had in life, or with others, are due to not getting communication.  Where things may seem to be fuzzy, or where someone, may take the incentive, but will do something and not communicating.  Or where something is assumed.  

Or where I was expected to do something, but I did not know.  So because communication was not reinforced, things fell through, or did not get accomplished.  

Its so vital, to communicate, and I think thats why I have since, an early age, tried to articulate my thoughts, actually by writing them down, and communicate through writing, because I have not always been confident, or been a great orator.  But that changed when I began writing my thoughts, as a reference.  So I overcame that to build up my self esteem.

In business, I learned to document my thoughts, and situations, because you need a back up sometimes.  To determine, what was communicated, and if it was not, then I had my notes to refer to.  To show, this was what was communicated.  

I used to work for the phone company.  And I used to joke to some, that the phone company, was responsible for providing great phone service to others, for having the tool as the phone. But inside the ranks of the company, there were times, communication was not available, and things were not understood, and the protocol, for even sharing information was difficult.  To receive or share.  Whose who?   Who do I need to contact, to communicate with?

Recently, I have had situations arise, where communication was vague, or where someone, actually did not communicate with me, and misunderstandings did occur. And I am not going to give the enemy fuel, if I remain silent.  I have my part.  And I see how the enemy can only come to destroy, when communication is not available. 

I have a neighbor, who just recently overstepped, her authority in a matter, because she did not communicate a problem with us, and tried to rectify a problem on her own, concerning our fence.  If she had only come to us, and stated there was a problem with the fence, and asked for our assistance, we would have been glad, to help.  Or, if she had asked for permission.  But she did neither, and now consequently, the situation has gotten so bad, by her lack of communication, that we are at odds with each other.  And its sad.  

With my friends, who I love dearly, things like that can also occur, if one person, is assuming something, but the communication is not clear, feelings can get hurt.

Or with family.  Who I love dearly.  With my hubby, or son, we often have little powwows, so we can get to the root of a problem but we communicate, so we all understand each other.  And I will just say here, everyone, needs that, to feel important or understood.  Then we pray to God, because we always need to communicate to our Lord.

So I try, really hard to communicate.  And I also ask for feedback, to see if my message was conveyed, and understood.  When one does not make the effort to do that, things, can fall through the cracks.  

I really feel like God is telling us, we have a responsibility to communicate.  Is it easy?  Not always.  Confrontation, can make it seem like war.  But the enemy would rather have us shut up, then to communicate.  Even if I do not agree with someone, I so appreciate, the effort when communication is presented.  It helps.  

But when someone goes silent, its mind boggling, because you just don’t know.  So yes, I can be bold, and confront, if I need communication in a matter.  Some things, to be honest, I don’t want to know, but if I am included in a matter, to do something, yes communicate with me.  Its a service we do for one another, but it takes two parties to do it.

I am pretty fair, when I know the facts, but its so frustrating, if you are put on the spot, yet someone did not say, or communicate, this is what I expect.  These are the rules.

Life is funny, and people like to do their own thing but do we really look as well to see, what God says?  Not man, but God, first.  I love my King James bible, because Gods Holy word, is there to give me answers.  God has done His part by communicating and giving us His Holy word.  And I just will say it here, He does not give us something only to think about but if its there, its a commandment.  But He provides, always.  

….Answers to why things happen, but also what God expects.  Sometimes you have to connect the dots, but communicating with God, is so important.  Prayer.  He is the King of Kings, He established His thoughts, but if I want answers I have to talk to Him, I have to search my Bible, I have to see and examine my part and heart in this matter.  Do I communicate, did I communicate my part effectively?

And with others.  Sometimes, I have to apologize. Or repent, and to God, I need to do this often.  Practically every day, because I am not perfect.  In communication.  Sometimes, I have to say, I failed to understand your thoughts, so I reacted this way.

But when someone does not apologize or communicate as well, it is frustrating to say the least.  When I have communicated, but the communication was not returned.  Or understood.  

Maybe thats why I am writing this.  Because communication is so important.  But it is a two way street.  One cannot just communicate, and work at something, while someone does not offer communication in return.

Well, I hope this brings insight, like I say, I am an opened book in many ways, and there are some things I don’t spill the beans about, or blab or communicate about, because it could be misunderstood, but if I try to be honest, and truthful with others and God, it does seem to make things easier.  

Communication always has to be worked out.  

This is what the Bible says about this.  I am glad it does.  Because more then anything I want to please my Lord.  Thank you…Father.  

HEBREWS 13:16  KJV

BUT TO DO GOOD AND TO COMMUICATE FORGET NOT: FOR WITH SUCH SACRIFICES GOD IS WELL PLEASED.  

 

Blessings, and love,

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,

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.
