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,

The promptings from God, require that sometimes you have to be extreme and take a stand.  Even here to say, I am a Christian author, tells others, that I am a servant of God.  So as a servant of God, I sense and see that this comes with great responsibility.  Because of who God is, and His plan.  

What I have learned, is God is very strategic.  He has a plan for everything, and when things come together, there are miracles, there are answers, and there is evidence.  And this always gives God glory.  

So because I know that, I have to discipline myself sometimes to take a stand, and yes be extreme.

Growing up, I always tried to take the middle road.  I tried to avoid conflict but it somehow or another found me.  I tried to do things my way, and well, if any of you know me, that did not turn out too well.  

I wanted to sing, and be another Diana Ross, that did not turn out well.  But, yet, I knew if I wanted to sing, I had to stand in front of an audience.  I did.  I sang.  And I was not a bad singer for the most part, though, I can laugh a little about it now, but I would sing spanish songs, and I did not know the words, I just imitated the words.  

People saw through that.  I saw through that, and I gave up.  Maybe I could have tried at it harder but I gave up.  I did not like the lifestyle.  I did not like being in bars.  

I did not know Christ as my Lord and savior, so I was very misguided.  I always say, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train.  But did I?  And in this cycle of life, success, can still come around….  

Yet in my writing, well thats different, I do get extreme, and I do take a stand for who I am in Christ.  I strive for truth.  I speak Gods truth from my King James bible.  And that gives me the greatest confidence, ever.

I know I was meant to write for the Lord.  Success, well according to the worlds standards, I may not have accomplished that.  But there is a real wonderful sense of just knowing truth, and knowing who God is, and being able to articulate it to someone.  To perhaps help them.  To share knowledge, to inspire someone, to bring truth.  And yes to always try and give God the glory.

So, why am I writing this?  Because I have learned, and I am still learning to stretch myself.  To know, sometimes I have to get out of my comfort zone.  Growing up again, I was not encouraged to do that.  No one took me by the hand and said, Elena you have to be bold.  You have to be strong, you have to do this.  

In fact, maybe you can relate.  But I have found, to survive sometimes, and yes thrive, you have to reach out, and grab the ring, and hold on.  You have to try…..

I get frustrated with people, who do not try to grow.  Who just take, but do not give.  Who sit around on the sidelines.  Yes, I know God loves them, and so do I, but they don’t inspire me.  I like being around people, who try.  I am inspired by those who know every day is gift from God, so they try to bless God in return.  

But I have noticed, those that I admire, have a boldness, a confidence, a sense to reach out and try.  When I see people, are just handed something, even in their looks, but they use it for the wrong thing, I think what a waste.  

Now I have had confidence issues, self-esteem issues, but deep down inside, I know who I am in Christ.  And Christ tells me I can do all things through Him.  Phillippians 4:13.  So I take that to heart.  I don’t give up.  I have not reached a measure of success, in my life financially.  

But I live a good life, a clean life, a healthy life, and a life of love.  With my family, my husband and son.  With God front and center, in all my thoughts, and decisions.  And the love I have….they are gifts, but gifts I do not take for granted.  Yet, I still long to do something great, to at least say I accomplished this, and for God.  

So maybe my inspiring you, can be that great thing you can do.  You see, just getting by, just standing on the sidelines, may make you safe, or so you think, but what if God wanted to use you for something, and you don’t want to take that stand?

You might, you could miss out, on the greatest opportunity that ever came your way.  “Could have, would have, should have”…..might be the questions you asked yourself.  If you are not bold, and extreme.

So you have to be prayed up.  You have to just make a commitment, to be ready for that opportunity.  It may just require you to be bold, and take a stand, and be extreme.  Get the word of God, the King James word….because to be honest the enemy will try to stop the plan of God in your life.  And you always need a defence.  

Just remember this, and I guess this is the scripture that inspired me, but I don’t want to be ‘lukewarm” in life.  Neither cold nor hot.  And when I stand before God, I don’t want him to say I missed it.  Over and over again.  Something about pleasing God motivates me, and inspires me…  

SO THEN BECAUSE THOU ART LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOR HOT, I WILL SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.  Revelation 3:16. 

Because you know that if you ask Him, He will use you.  It may feel uncomfortable, but you will grow, and gain a strength, and a sense of who you are so much, that it will build your confidence.  

So get ready, to be bold, and extreme.  And then just walk into your calling, and blessings.  

Much love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

Maybe your hurting today. Maybe you have lost hope, and it is difficult to cope. Maybe poverty is preventing you from doing all that you would like to, but yet you see, God almighty is providing, and you have food, and a roof over your head. Maybe friends, have abandoned you. Maybe you are ill.

Sometimes, we do struggle, and we can be lonely, sad, and broken hearted, for different reasons. But I want to encourage you today. I want you to know there is a God, and He loves you.

And you know, I cannot say this for everyone. But He has taught me things through my lack, through my sadness, my own personal sorrows. My own illnesses. And that is to seek Him, and I do with all my heart soul, and mind. I almost feel like He has tested me. As He has allowed certain things in my life.

For I see, and I have to give my husband credit for this. But sometimes, we are trying, and trying to do good, and we are looking at it for the wrong reasons. And when we stop, and say, I better be careful, and I better not let this fester in me, and take root, because it is so negative, and destructive, we can get right with Christ.

For me you see, lately, it has been a battle. It has been a challenge. It has been a struggle. Many Christians, brothers and sisters, have actually abandoned me, or fought me. Some have unfriended me, some that I loved dearly, but they did not see me with love. They do not see me as their own sister in Christ. Yet I am. Many have stopped listening to me. Many have actually challenged me as well. They do not see it the way I do….

Well this is my thought through it all, and it is an early Christmas present. That God has given me, because it gives me hope, in who I am in Christ, and what I do.

No matter in what state I am, I have learned to be content. And when I am not, I know how to take it to the obedience of Christ. To get back on track.

But I am not here for the righteous, or those who do not believe.  I am here to bring truth to the hurting, the broken, and yes the sinner. I am here to feed His lambs.

With His truth, my King James Bible. And it just has brought a joy to me, right now, because I am not doing it for money. I am not doing it for popularity, I am not doing it for those who know truth. Or those that are “self-righteous.”

I am doing it, for those Christ has sent me to….To give them hope. And those who do not know truth. To maybe even warn them. To seek God, to be humble, to repent. Because sin will separate us from God. Whether you are a Christian or not. The wages of sin is death.

I just sense, if we stop, and realize what we are doing, and can let it go, and direct it to God, we can have hope again. We can make a difference. After all, Christ said, he was not here for the righteous, but for the sinner. And we all sin, yes, and come short of the glory of God.

But I realize my messages are not for everyone, but God will guide. And I hope it is for the hurting today. Just release it to God, give Him your cares, and worries, and don’t let it fester in your heart, to take away your joy, or hope.

Redirect what you are feeling, and doing, and let Christ give you the answer.  The answer may just be in the way you are looking at it.

There is a God, and He is mighty in power, and can make a difference. This is the whole beautiful spirit and message of Christmas.

That Christ came for each one of us, to save us. Because He loves us. Merry Christmas.

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

The whole point of the story of Noah from the Bible, is that God punished sin. He destroyed mankind, for its sins against Him. Noah was a faithful man, a man who obeyed God. This is why God used him, to gather all of creation, two by two, to be spared in the ark.

God is not mocked folks. Even now, God has warned us, that we are to turn from sin, and seek Him. He has given us Jesus Christ, so we can be spared, but don’t make the mistake of not taking God to heart in this.

Yes, God is loving kind, and merciful, but He does not flip flop. He made a promise, according to His holy word, and He will return, and yes take vengeance on those who disobeyed him.

Hollywood made a big mistake, by not giving a true account of this story. But they will also stand before God, for this.

Read your King James Bible, turn from sin. Maybe you don’t believe in God, but He believes in you. And turn from sin, turn from the ways of the world. Yes God, will come back. And every one will see Jesus, in the clouds, returning.

I was once one of those who did not believe. But God is REAL! And I implore you for your own soul, seek God. I wrote a book, about HOW TO HAVE FAITH. It is on Smashwords. Or you can order it from these links.

I can help you, find your faith, but whatever way you choose, don’t let this message go by without knowing God does punish sin. He will return, and even if you do not believe, you will stand before God, and be judged. For the sake of your own soul, see truth.

THE LORD REVEALED TO ME MY COMPUTER “COPY AND PASTE” HACKER THIEF


I find it ironic, that I have had this dream, where the Lord revealed to me, the computer thief, who has been going through my files for years, stealing my writings, and claiming them, as “her” own.

I find it ironic, and interesting, one because today is the anniversary of my mothers death.  10 years to the day.  And who else, would help you but your mother, with God?  And also, that today, is a day, where many are actually boycotting, the governments, bill, to censor, the internet.  So the timing of this, somehow or another, with my dream, brings clarity, it brings wisdom, it brings insight, to truth.

But, my mother knew, even then, before she died, how frustrated, I have been, as a writer.   And as a writer, I have dealt, with my frustrations, of even catching people, who have taken some of my writings, and copied and pasted them, and claimed them, as their own.

You know, the internet, and computers, are a fascinating “tell it like it is” tool.  But so is the word of God.  And the word of God says, that their are those who use “devices” for evil purposes, instead of good.  That they are being used by the devil.  II Corinthians 2:11 Lest satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his “devices.”

So, by all that the Lord, reveals to me, and that I know, even what I do in my writings, there are those, who would love to stop me, they would love to stop the gospel, from going out.   I know, I have been tested, over and over again, to see, if I would be worthy of sharing a word here.  And I do not know, how worthy I am, or what my writings are worth, concerning monetary value, because I have not been paid. I have not been able to be published, by a reputable or well-known publisher.

Yet, by a spiritual level, in my own life, I know the sacrifice, of Christ, was so great, I write,  and I have for over fifteen years, at least.  Without pay.  I write, because I was, once lost, but now found.  I write, because Christ has made a difference in my life.  I write, because I know people, need hope.  They need inspiration, more then anything, they need Gods truth.  So, I write HIS scriptures.  I write for the Lord.  I am a Prayer Writer.  I know the power, of prayer…..

And even as I dreamed this dream, this morning, where I caught the “woman” who has been stealing from me, my writings, for many years, which I knew not.  I realize something.  She is desperate.  I looked in her eyes, and I saw, she knew, I had caught her.   Jeremiah 2:26.  As the thief is ashamed when found.  And then, I woke up.  To be honest, with you, my first reaction, was anger.  I wanted to punch her out.  To reveal who she is.

For even though, I do not know who she is personally, or where she is, I know that God knows.  So automatically, I received peace.  Because vengeance is His.  So, I do not need to punch her out.  But, the thing is, as I think about her.  I think about all the curses, she has brought into her own life, by stealing from me.  And I do feel sorry for her.  But I do not condone, her actions, nor do I defend her.  For she has been exposed to me, by God.

For she even by stealing from me, and my writings, has had to know truth.  She has had to see her self, the truth, I have written, and from time to time.  For we reap, what we sow.  She has sown, destruction to herself, she has sown, evil by claiming, things that do not belong to her, my writings.  It just all made sense.  All the viruses, my computers have had, all the strange happenings.  Even when I publish, things, I have seen, strange discrepancies, and problems, with hackers, etc.  It just all makes sense.  She has targeted me.  She has known how to do things, with computers.  She understands viruses, she understands technology.  She has had this knowledge, and used it for evil purposes.  When I think about it, now that I know this truth.  From my dream.  Its mind boggling, to know someone, knows this kind of stuff, and is being used by the devil.

Look, I may not be knowledgeable, about “how” one uses, knowledge, in an evil way.  But when someone, takes knowledge, insight, the know-how, and uses it to hurt others, or to obtain information, to use for their own benefit, without giving credit, where credit is due, well, in Gods eyes, that is stealing.  That is being a false witness, that is really someone who is being used by the devil.  For he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  I hate liars, and thieves, and those things, that God hates.

I hate them.  Or rather, I need to say, I hate the sin, and not them.  I HATE THE DEVIL!  Because I see, when any one of us, sins, against God, we sin against ourselves.  We hurt ourselves.  I hate that.  So I write.  I write truth, and love, and I write, and plead with people, to turn from the false way, for they are only hurting themselves.

After I dreamed this, I prayed to God, and I just asked my Lord, and savior, that He deals with them.  Not me.  Thats not my job.  And that I would be restored, for all that I have lost, for so many years.  That favor, would finally be mine.  For you see, I have caught my thief.  I know who she is now.  And when I pray, I will pray for her soul, but I will not stop praying, until, I know she has found justice.  And justice, has found her. In whatever way, my Lord may choose.

If that means, she pays me back, and restores, that which she has stolen, thats fine.  If she does not, well, the Lord says, he will rebuke the devourer.  He will bless those who bless me, and He will curse, those who curse me.  Genesis 12:3.  And for the one who does things in secret, to hurt me, they are cursing them selves, according to Gods word.  Cursed be he that smitheth his neighbor secretly.  And all the people shall say, Amen.  Deuteronomy 27:24.

She has been devouring my gifts, my fruit, and my labor, and she will not be blessed, until she repents.

Maybe you are her, partner, in crime.  He or she.  Maybe you are seeing this, and reading this, and you can identify with her, or even with me.  Maybe you have been using the internet, to hurt others.  To take others copyrights.  To deceive, to plant viruses, tracking devices, whatever.

I plead with you, whoever you are.  If you are using the internet, to hurt others, to hurt and steal, and to falsify things, please stop.  For the sake of your soul.  Please stop, and restore, and go to God, and ask forgiveness.

You are hurting yourself, you are hurting, your loved ones, more then you know.  And perhaps my dream was a warning to you.  For you have been caught, and even caught by yourself.  By reading this.  It is not coincidence, God brought you here to read this.  Perhaps, your judgement, will not be so harsh, if you stop now, go to God, and repent.  If not, you have no idea, what you have done, and you will pay for it.  Restore, repent, and give no place to the devil.  Hell is real.

Now, that the Lord revealed this to me, she cannot get away.  She cannot continue, because believe me, I know how to pray.  And I just thank God, He showed me, and revealed who my computer thief is.  And even for those that would do the devils work.  He or she.

Let’s just say this, she messed with the wrong person.  For I am Gods child.  His ambassador, his Prayer writer.  And he is my protector.  And by the way, I say, this for my own soul.  I forgive her.  But its in Gods hands……

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I give you praise, glory and honor, and thank you for revealing this to me.  I know according to your word, that when the thief is caught, he or she must restore.  Even here, I know, who it is.  Not by name, not by destination, but you know.  Lord, my prayer in this matter is private, and you know, how much I have gone through, how patient I have been, how sorrowful, I have travailed in these matters where I write for you.  But I am so grateful even here, that I have peace.  For it is in your hands.  You are the way of justice.  And I just pray to continue to write, but I do pray, even here for your protection.  I plead the blood of Jesus, as my protection.  To cover me.  I pray, for restoration.  I bind the devil, his evil devices, that have been used in computers.  And I pray, truth would prevail, love, and yes, the American way in freedom.  But not freedom to do evil.  Lord, how ironic, your timing is, in this, how mysterious are your ways, that I totally submit to.  Lord, thank you for taking care of this matter for me, in Jesus name.  Amen 

THEY SHALL RUN TO AND FRO IN THE CITY; THEY SHALL RUN UPON THE WALL, THEY SHALL CLIMB UP UPON THE HOUSES; THEY SHALL ENTER IN AT THE “WINDOWS” LIKE A THIEF.  JOEL 2:9

GETTING OUT OF THE BOX ~ THINKING WITH CHRIST!


Does God love us, even though we do not know him?  Or we may know him, but we keep missing the mark?

Yes we know John 3:16.  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Yes, God loves us the way we are.  But, because of who He is, He knows, we can have potential, that far exceeds our own expectations.

Today, I want to, tap into that source, of who He is.  With love, with His word, with prayer, and praise.  I know His word is the key.  I want to expect, great blessings, but more then anything, I want to see my faith, reaching those new heights.  To speak to my mountains.  To change, if I am doing anything wrong.

I do not want to stay the way I am, I want to reach others for Christ.  And more then anything, I want to see my life fulfilled, because of who He is.  I want to grow every day. Never content, with who I am, but because of who He is in me.

I have such a strong sense, a determination today, as I write this.  That I can only attribute it, to the Holy Spirit, speaking to me, prompting me, motivating me…..I feel so different.  Its that feeling, that “I know, that I know.”  And it just gives me that “unction to function!”

Today, I am content, I am thankful, grateful.  For each and everyone of my blessings, that God has provided.  Not by me, not even my husband, or my own family, but by God. And I am so grateful for my family.  They bring me so much.  But this glory goes to God.  For He, is life, and life is not life without Him.  God, my Father, my Lord, who sustains me. By His mercy, and grace.

But I sense, I am not reaching my full potential, so I am stirring up, my spirit, I am stirring up your spirit, and anybody else who may read this, to know, there is a way!  Christ, is that way, the truth, and life.

I am not content in the sense, that I am just happy, to let life go by me.  Without giving it my all, and all.  Sometimes, we can become complacent, and you know, it is good to rest at the feet of the Lord, and not get into spiritual battles, but when one has opportunity, to do great things for God, for others, for themselves, then they should tap into that.  And take a risk!  Take a chance.  Get out of your comfort zone, and explore the options.

Christ is holding your hand, and will guide you.  I know some pretty talented, people…..(everybody I know)  For you see, you each possess, a gift, a calling, a special talent, or attribute, that you excel at.  No one else, can do what you do, for it is your unique blessing, God has given you.  But many just let it coast for them.

I refuse to do that, any more.  Any chance, I get to share the good news of Jesus Christ, especially, here in my writing, I am going to be first in line.  I am going to run up there, and wait, for my chance.  Why? Because of who Christ is. Because of what He has done for me!

Many say, that once you reach success, one may slow down, or get lazy in trying.  I would hope that would not be, the case for me.  I want to get past the obstacles.  I want to be a soul winner, in a big way.

It would not matter if I reached success. From the perspective of the world.  I do want success, but because of who I am in Christ.  For, the goal, the objective, always, as Christians, is to live a life worthy of Christs sacrifice.  It means, being an example of love.  To help others, reach Salvation, for their souls, to spare them from hell.  And to bring glory and honor and praise to God, for his plan.

So you see, there are so many souls who really do not know Christ.  So it is our responsibility in this life, to serve God, and others in this. I can only commit, that what I do in my writing, praying God will guide me, to reach others for His Kingdom.  Even if it is just one soul, who may read this at a time.  Angels rejoice, when one sinner, accepts Christ, and ensures their salvation. Luke 15:10.  So even if it is one soul at a time.  I want to make a difference.

So, I am thinking out of the box.  I am thinking past, what others may think of me, or by those who try to stop me.  By reaching out, and discouraging me, or speaking against me.

Have you ever heard of the theory of the crabs in the box, on the sand, and every time, one tried to get out, another crab would try and block it, or stop it?  Well, I have known some crabby people in my life. I have known people, who could have stepped, up, and try to help me, but they let the opportunity fail.  And fall.

They knew I was in ministry.  Some knew, (not all) but some knew, I was a soul winner, and they hurt me.  Some again…(not all).  But those that did….They knew, I had a good word.  They knew I was a soul-winner.  They knew, I was trying to get my book out in the market, when I self-published it.  ( A Book Of Remembrance~ 365 Days to a Personal Relationship with God~ A journal)  They knew, I was looking for a publisher, and they had connections.  They knew, I could speak publicly, and yet denied me access to their churches.  To speak to their women, to their groups.

I have seen some jealous people, who do not try to help, others, because they see the inadequacies of themselves.  Or they just hated me.  (see my post “Have you Been Hurt by Religous people, you thought, were brothers and sisters in Christ.)

They knew….and all I can say, is I forgive them.  And God bless and help them.  I believed, even though, they knew, it was not my time.  I knew I had to grow some more too.  I knew, I had to let God totally change me, and refine me.  It is a daily process, of commitment.  God knows, so even though, I say, “they knew and did not Help me.”

GOD KNEW…..I know, God had to make changes.  So I am at peace with it.  Maybe I am ready now, I don’t know.  I do know this.  There is a God, and He has His ways.  He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  And I know it more, then I ever knew it.

But some knew….and they did not help. And I have to express that, maybe even to purge it.  But it is o.k. I am at peace with it, because I want God to get the glory, and honor for it.  And God has the right people, with the right heart, for Him, and the vision God has given to each of us, to fulfill it. For the souls, we are to reach His Kingdom.

It will be done.  Because I am getting out of my box of thinking, with God.

Dear one, I know I am not perfect.  I am not always tactful, I try, but sometimes, I do make mistakes.  I can be blunt.  It can offend.  I can come on very strong.  But, you know what, if I am strong, I am strong because of Christ.  If I am blunt, it is because I know the truth.  If I err, I pray, I err on the side of love.

I never, want to hold any one back.  And if I can help someone, in the future, when, I become successful in the sense, that I can share blessings….I can share money, or favor, or opportunity, I will.  Because I know, what it is like, to need help, and people deny you.  And I don’t want to be that person, who holds anybody back, in their gifts and callings.  I know what it feels like to crave, to need help, and be ignored.  To be rejected…..With all my faults, I pray, never to put someone down, and not reach out, and give a helping hand.  At least to show them the Lord, to give them hope.  Giving love….Not even a hand out, but dignity, to give a helping hand.  Every one needs help. I don’t care who you are.  We all need God, and we need each other.

For I have learned, all of this, but I am getting out of my box of despair, even today.  I am getting out of that box, of negative thinking.  I am getting out of that box, that holds me, and others back.  I am getting out of my box with thinking, its not possible.  It is possible.  With God all things are possible.  Luke 1:37. I am getting out of my box with Christ.

I find it ironic, that my writings are entitled:  “Just My Thoughts” and yes, they are my thoughts, but they have come from experience, from life, from the hard knocks, from loneliness, desperation, sickness, and by healing, and by the mind of Christ, who comforted me, spoke to me, loved me even in my sins, and He has prompted me.  My thoughts, come from Him, and His love, and I will never ever deny, or be so proudful, to think it is just me.  Its God almighty!

So, I am getting out of my box.

And not when I am dead, and resurrected, but now with Him.  LOL. He promised, life, and life abundantly, and I am going to live my life in Christ, past my expectations, and tap into who He is.  Seriously!

How about you?  Are you ready to get out of the box, out of your comfort zone, with Christ?  All things are possible with him.

Today, is a gift, God has given us, not tomorrow, because no one, can claim tomorrow.  Or yesterday, for it is the past.  But the presence now of Christ, is the time, in His presence, and it is a “present.” I am opening the box today, and receiving the gift, Christ has for me today.

I am getting out of my box of own limited thinking with Christ.  The secret to thinking with Christ, is from the word of God.  Just thought, I would express that, again, to give you the key…..

Just my thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, and Praise you, and worship you in spirit, and truth.  You know my heart, and I pray worthy to do great things, as I think out of my own confinement.  As I think out of just what I see.  Or feel.  I claim the mind of Christ, for new awareness, of the possibilities, because of Christ.  I bind anything, that is not of you.  I release the blessings, and the open doors, from heaven to do your work.  To do your will, to think out of my box.  To be effective.  I bind your enemy, by the blood of Jesus, and claim a hedge of protection for me, my loved ones, and for your servants.  Lord, I am believing for great things to be done, in your name.  For your glory, for your honor, and for your praise.  In Jesus name.  Let the lost be saved, by my works, that you give me.  That truly come from your Kingdom.  Inspire your people, the lost, by my works.  So that many can come to your throne.  To know love.  For you are love.  Our Lord Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice, that makes this all possible.  Amen

NOTE:  Today, as I post this, it is the anniversary of my Fathers death, many, many years ago.  And it just made me realize, my dad, would want me to be positive, to think outside of the box, to trust God.  After all, he prayed for me.  To be born.  Long story, short, mom, was not able to have children.  Dad prayed for me, and well, I have come full circle in prayer….so wow, this is a milestone, in who I am in Christ, to declare this.

THE DARK HOUSE, THE TEMPLE OF GOD, MY SOUL


Years ago, before I made Christ my Lord, and savior.  I would dream about a house.  A dark house, this house was alive.  It had a life in itself.  It could breathe, it could see, and hear, it could talk, it was evil and mean.  Very ominous, and foreboding.

I would dream about this house often.  I can still see it, in my memory.  Each room, had a life in itself.  It was a big house, and in this house, I would be afraid.  There was no place to go, without the fear, tormenting me.  I could not hide in this house, and it knew everything about me, and would mock me, and laugh at me.  Every time, I dreamt about that house, I would be sad, troubled.  How did it know I was there?

For years, every once, in a while I would dream about this house.  And every time, that I did, I would sense and see it.  It was so engraved in my memory.

When I became a Christian, and I gave my heart, to Christ.  I prayed, to God, that I would not dream about that house, or be tormented by it.  And so, for many years, I stopped dreaming about it.

I guess I found a lot of peace in my Christianity.  But I also know, every day is a choice, and a test in faith.  Yet, as a Christian, I know I am not perfect.  I have had to grow, working out my salvation.  Finding out who God is.  And who I am through Christ.  It is a journey…..But I will not let go of God.  And as I have gone through things though, I know the goal is Holiness.  Which I will write about more so even later.  But with that in my mind, I know as well the enemy does not want any Christian to achieve that.  For that is to be in “one mind, with Christ.”  So this may be part of the understanding, and I am going for Holiness as a goal.  In any event….

So, last night, I went to bed, and to be honest, I was a little sad, and yes, even a little angry.  That prayers have not been answered, that I am still in the place I was years ago, as far as my dreams, ambitions, etc.  And I went to bed, not totally at peace.  It has been hard on us financially, and yesterday, we began tithing.  Not just making offerings, but tithing.   We have been moody, and frustrated, yet willing to obey God.  Adamant in this.  But still frustrated.  So, I went to sleep, somewhat anxious.

Again, I dream about the house.  I had not dreamt about that house for at least 30 years.  Almost as long, as I have been a Christian.  Yet, I knew, I was in the house again.  It was familar.  I knew my way in the house.  And as I walked in the house, I was not afraid.  The rooms were no longer frightful, they were pleasant rooms. With music, and joy…..This time, the rooms were illuminated with light, and I was not afraid of the house.  It had peace, it was not mocking me, it was not fearful.  It  had rooms, that were illuminated, with love, and compassion.

Yet, there were chambers in the house, that were still dark.  I did not want to go into those rooms. I turned away. Because I had remembered them, from my prior dreams.  But, I felt a prompting to go in those rooms, and face, that darkness.  I did not want to go into those rooms, because from my past experiences, bad things had happened in those rooms.  Scary Things, that I do not even think I can put into words, but they were rooms of sin.

It was stagnant, sort of like me lately.  In some ways.  Very still and depressing.  For no light was evident.  No truth, no love.  The fear, wanted to stop me, from going into those rooms.  But a sweet voice, said, “Don’t be afraid.  Face the rooms.  Go into the rooms.  Don’t be afraid, I am with you.”

As I could see in the rooms, they were dingy, they were shabby, and they were in need of cleaning.  I said a prayer, and went into the rooms.  And I said, “Lord, fill these rooms, with your love, your holy spirit.  Take away the evil spirits, that have been here.  Cleanse it.  With your love.  Fill it.  I surrender these rooms to you.  Don’t leave me in here without you.  I plead the blood of Jesus.  Please Lord Jesus.”

All of a sudden, dusting, Refreshing began…..Laborers, people, perhaps angels, were there, because my mom, and one of my uncles were there.  In those rooms, were people, I know, and love.  Also there were friends, and people in ministry, and they began to clean up, the rooms.  They began, to scrub, and rearrange things, and when I woke up, the rooms, had light.  They were worthy of inhabiting.  Cleansed.  No longer shabby but comfortable.  It felt like home.  I woke up.

There have been so many times, when God by His Holy Spirit, has spoken to me when I wake up.  First thing in the morning.  And today, was one of those days….And this is what He said.  As I was thinking about my dream, I could hear him telling me this….

The dark house, was you.  You were in darkness, you were in sin, you were fearful, you were mocked by your ownself.  The devil, was there, and his plan, was to destroy you.  But I have come, that you would have life abundantly.  But even though, you did give me your heart, you had not totally surrendered to me.  You had not completely trusted me, you were holding onto those rooms, those chambers, and darkness was still there.  But now, you have totally surrendered, and I have cleaned those rooms.  “With my holiness.”  Your dark house is no longer a dark house.  It is now the Temple of God.   It is worthy of me to reside in.  Because you have surrendered all of yourself. II Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?  For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

As I write this, I know, perhaps, maybe someone can relate to this as well.  You live with yourself, in your body, which is a house as well.  Is it dark?  Is it fearful?  Are there things in that house you are trying to hide?  That make you feel unworthy? I don’t know whats in your house, whats in your life, from memories, fears, or experiences.

But don’t you want it to be a temple of the living God, so you can have peace?  And no longer tormented from the past, your sins?  Or let me even add this, from the pain, from others.  That has stolen your peace, because you were abused, or hurt in some way.  God can take that pain, or any pain, even pain, you have caused on someone.  Jesus, can cleanse that…..

You may or may have not given your heart to Christ.  Yet, part of you, and I am not judging you….  Because my feeling, from this, is that, I have grown in the Lord.  So, parts of my house, or my life, did have light.  But there were parts of me that were in darkness.  And may still be vague.  Even now.  Who knows our souls, better than God?

But, I know who God is!  The King of Kings.  Anything is possible with God.

So who am I to judge you?  When I am trying to figure myself out.  All I know, in my relationship with the Lord, Gods word has illuminated my life, but yet, I have had darkness in my life.  Not being sure of myself.  Not, always sure, if I am on the right path.  Though, I do try to walk the way, and the truth, and the life of Christ.  John 14:6. But sometimes, when you cannot always see, you are just trusting you are on the right path.

Life is a journey, and there are times, when we walk by faith, but we can be in darkness.  Only by God, and his word, can it be illuminated.  Does that make sense?  For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?  Psalm 56:13

Anyway….Maybe you are like me, where you have given your heart, to God, but still there are areas that need work, that need life, and light.  All I know, is that this whole dream, and my life, is so symbolic to me.  According to scripture.  The word of God, says we are the temple of the living God.  But we need to keep seeking him to bring the light in.  I Corinthians 6:15 Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

And it just made me think….Has my doubt, my fears, kept him in my temple, but in only a few of the rooms?  In a few parts of my life?  I don’t know.  He knows, but we don’t always know.  I don’t know why after so long I would dream about that house….

But this morning, I prayed, and I surrendered, again, every chamber, every room of my heart, and my life to be filled with his spirit.  For I worship my Lord, in spirit, and in truth.  I want to live a life of holiness.  His holiness.  I do not want to give place to the devil.  I don’t ever want to let my darkness, my sins, my selfishness, or attitude keep Christ, from inhabiting my heart.  My house.  Me…..

If I am to dream about this house, from hereon….  I don’t want to see it in darkness, mocking me, or fear in me.  I want to see it as a Temple of God.  I want my soul, to inhabit, the praises of God, to give him glory and honor.  I want my soul, to be a place of beauty, hope, compassion, love, and trust.  I want to please God, with all of my heart, soul, and mind.  Because I love my Lord, I so appreciate what Christ did for me, on the cross.  I know I have to grow, but I want to see this place, as a place of beauty, where the rooms, will turn into a palace, a mansion, where God can live, in my heart.  A temple of the living God.  Where people, will see Christ in me, and I in him.  Where love will be evident.

Yes, I was a dark house, but I believe, I am changing to be more of a temple of God. Isaiah 38:20 The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD. I know this is my soul….

I think if someone saw this as a movie.  They would be able to relate to it.  I know I do, I have lived in that dark house, that tormented me, but now I am praying it will be a temple of the Living God, for his presence to be there….Its my soul.  Jonah 2:7  When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

Just my thoughts, with Love,  Elena Ramirez
