I just want to decree this, I want to make it clear. As many of you know, I do want to speak publicly, in your church or congregation.

I have not done it in a while.  I know, God has His reasons. But something dawned on me, just now, to speak this, to publicly proclaim it.

IF….

If I am ever called to give a testimony, or to speak publicly in a church. I will not try to sell my book there. Even today, I wrote just on impulse, Gods impulse, about how Christ turned the tables, on those who changed the temple, to sell what they had.  I don’t want to be one of those Christians.

If God blesses my book, financially, in other ways, then so be it. But I will not try to peddle the word of God, or peddle my book, in His House. In His temple.

That may sound strange to some. But I don’t care. I really do only want to serve God. But if money came into the situation, somehow it would take away from the message.

I never want to compromise or let money, be the root of evil in serving God.  

Does that make sense? I don’t know, but I am proclaiming it here.

To God be the glory….

AND THE JEWS PASSOVER WAS AT HAND, AND JESUS WENT UP TO JERUSALEM.  AND FOUND IN THE TEMPLE THOSE THAT SOLD OXEN AND SHEEP AND DOVES, AND THE CHANGERS OF MONEY SITTING:  AND WHEN HE HAD MADE A SCOURGE OF SMALL CORDS, HE DROVE THEM ALL OUT OF THE TEMPLE, AND THE SHEEP, AND THE OXEN; AND POURED OUT THE CHANGERS MONEY, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES.  AND SAID UNTO THEM THAT SOLD DOVES, TAKE THESE THINGS HENCE; MAKE NOT MY FATHERS HOUSE AN HOUSE OF MERCHANDISE.  JOHN 2:13-16.  KJV.

It is difficult for me to write this.  But I don’t know what else to do.  I have prayed about this very much, on and off for the past couple of years, and I feel like I am drowning.  I am drowning because I don’t know what to do.  

But I just want to ask…..If you saw someone drowning wouldn’t you try and help them?  I would.  This is why I write.  To help someone.  

Twice, I have felt the prompting to write this, and because of that I feel like it is God prompting me to ask for help.  I don’t want to have pride, concerning this.  But humbly, I have to admit in truth, that I don’t know how to go about publishing my book in the market, distributing it, networking, and just tooting my horn or asking for help.  So that is why it is hard.  

I know what I have written in these two books, are self-help books, to help people in their faith, and to break curses.  I know how to write.  This is my gift, but I admit, in other matters of this.  I don’t know what to do.  

I have tried as much as I can on my own, to “self-publish” these books.  And I have tried to take it further by getting the books listed on my blog, and on Smash words, where some could find them, and download them electronically.  

I have been writing for years.  In service to God, and to others.  I know what I write is truth.  I know what I write is based on the King James Bible.  I know my Bible.  I know, from my own trial and error, what works, and what does not.  Concerning God.  To change our characters, to change our souls.  To please God.

I know what I write, can offer someone hope, and yes truth.  Which to be honest is so missing from so many.  I am not trying to put myself in a position, where I am saying I know better then someone else.  But when I see, false prophets, liars, and people who twist Gods word, say for example concerning the “prosperity message.” I do get sad, that I cannot find my way.  

Well, I am asking Gods people to help me.  I am asking for help.  I don’t understand the publishing world.  I don’t have the connections.  I don’t know where to go from here, but to ask humbly please help me.  

I have in the past asked for help.  To publishers, to literary agents, to even other ministries, and I have been rejected over and over again.  Throughout the years…That maybe this is why it is hard for me to ask.  But I do ask.  

Please help me so God can get glorified.  Help me, so others can learn truth.  Help me, because I need a miracle.  If anything pray for the glory of God to be revealed, so I can get the help to give God glory.  So others can be helped.  

I am just sending out this SOS….and praying someone knows someone, or has the ability, and knowledge and maybe even financial resources to help me.  

But I know I cannot do this on my own.  I take what God gives me, in my writings, and even small quotes, and I write them, and pray it helps someone. Daily I write.  I breathe and write, because if I do not write.  I would not be fulfilled.  And this is who I am in Christ.

I promote the King James bible, and I also know in my writings how important this Holy word of God is, to bring truth.  I have been obedient.  

I am not giving up, but I don’t know what to do, so I ask for help.  This whole process has been so overwhelming.  But I do take direction from God, and this is what I feel like He is telling me to do.  To ask for help.

God bless you for taking the time out of your day to read this, and if anything to share it to someone who may know how to help me.  For the glory of God.  

Please respond to me, if you feel led at prayerofgod@comcast.net  My photo above has the links to the books electronically.  You can see more information on http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

The titles of both of my books are:  

HOW TO HAVE FAITH.  

BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST.  

I believe, and I do ask in prayer.  I ask in the beautiful name of our Lord and savior.  Jesus Christ.  This is why I can ask you.  

Maybe you need an answer, or maybe you know someone who needs an answer, and I can help them.  Because you or they may be drowning.  I can help them by showing them who Christ is.

In fact, I know I can.  Because of who Christ is to me.  And what HE has done in my life.

PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS, LOOK AT MY MANY POSTS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME TO WRITE.  I CAN OFFER HOPE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING TO THOSE WHO NEED ANSWERS FROM GOD.   

AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE.  MATTHEW 21:22

Thank you, in Service to Christ and His sheep, His people, to God be the glory.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THE MOVIE “NOAH”

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.

HOW TO ORDER BOOK “HOW TO HAVE FAITH ~ MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT” by Christian author Elena Ramirez


60010_10152112533963327_1777479104_nIMG_0053Hello, I want to introduce you to my new book:  

HOW TO HAVE FAITH~  

MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH, WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I wrote this book, because as a writer, and as a Christian I see the need, for all of us to have faith.  

Many of us, have lost faith in God.  Many of us, have faith, but it may not be that strong.  

And there are some, who have no faith at all, and I believe, that the Lord has shown me principles, to establish, so faith can be evident.

So it can grow, so it can change a persons life, and so one can be fulfilled.  I know this book, is anointed, and will help so many.  

You see, I sensed, and felt the presence of God, as I wrote this book.  As He instructed me, and prompted me and even by the scriptures I use to make a point, to reveal the “Secret Principles.”  

And I know what it feels like to be numb.  To not feel any hope, or to just want to give up.  I understand that, and many, will go to other things, drugs, sex, money, anything to get their mind off of the pain, or the agony that so many have by just trying to avoid that sorrow, and sadness.  

But Faith, is what will get you through, and faith, will complete you as a person.  Don’t give up, get faith!  I know, HOW TO HAVE FAITH!  Let me show you by my book, what has worked for me!

In this book, I share “my secret principles”, I have learned to increase faith.  

Some of the principles you will find in this book include:

Believing with Confidence.

True Love Secrets

Repentance

Words that you speak

The difference in Bible versions

The Power of Love

Why religion can block your faith

Fearing God is healthy for you.

My testimony of faith……and so much more.   

 

IMG_0031This book contains over 500 pages of insight, thirty four chapters with more inspiration and truth from Gods word, the King James Bible and some of my testimonies, that have revealed to me, HOW TO HAVE FAITH.

A WORD ABOUT CHANGE GOD DOES NOT CHANGE, AREN’T WE SUPPOSED TO CHANGE? By Elena Ramirez


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe word I have today, is about change.

Malachi 3:6 says…..I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT…

So it gives to reason, that God does not change, but we change, in the Lord.

We see the world changing, we see our country changing, we see things that meant for value and honor changing, and what do we do? Do we go with the flow of change? In some things yes. Technology, has advanced.

Nonetheless, seriously, when I was growing up, a computer, who heard of that? But yet, we learn, we grow, we use what we have. But there are some things, that should not change, and that is Gods Holy word.

The world, wants an easy way to read Gods word, and so they change it. But did we forget, God says, FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT?  He is not asking a question, He knows who He is.  But do we know who we are in Him?   How can we know….if we are doing it our way?

He did not change His word, in fact, the King James Bible has been established, for 400 years. No copy rights, and no changes, in fact, there are so many scriptures there, that say, do not change it. Do not add, do not delete….and yet we see so many of these Bible versions, actually have scriptures missing.

Not complete, not whole. What about the anointing, the holiness? Look we are called to be in this world but not a part of it. There are some things we should not change to, just because the world does.

Just food for thought here, but ponder on this…..If God does not change, aren’t we supposed to change to His way? And how can we do it, if we are reading word, that is no longer holy because men have put their hands to it?

How can we change, if we used something that has been changed. With word that is missing?

Hmmmmmm…..Scripture food for thought, this morning.

Love and blessings, in Christ…..

Father, I pray, with such a strong sense of urgency, that people need to know your ways, your truth, and that they have to see the enemy is deceiving them.  Change their hearts, as I plead the blood of Jesus, to know true word, holy word, anointed word, word that you sent that has power.  Lord this is what your word says….HE SENT HIS WORD AND HEALED THEM AND DELIVERED THEM FROM THEIR DESTRUCTION.  PSALM 107:20  In Jesus name, Amen.  

Just a tidbit here about my new book.  HOW TO HAVE FAITH, MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  It is in the process of getting published right now, but check out the link, that gives more information about it.  I am not sure how much I am charging for the book, due to prices with publishers etc.  But, as soon, as I know, I will quote that for you.  Please remember this page, and the link is on the top of this blog as well for reference.  Blessings…..

JESUS ASKS: IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AND FOLLOWING ME, WHY ARE YOU VOTING DEMOCRATIC? ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez


Jesus asks you this.  Why? Why would you vote Democratic, if you are following Him, and you have given him your heart?  This could hinder your walk with him, not only now, but for eternity.

The Lord gave me this assignment, to write this today.  Before, today, I had no inclination to write this.  I felt, well, let the facts present themselves.  People, will vote with a clear conscience.  But, I see more then ever, that the devil, has blinded people.

Personally, I did not want to write about this, at first.  And, more, and more each day, that goes by, and I see, the news, and I see, the bias slant, from even the media, etc.  I see, that Christians do have to speak up.  We cannot let evil overcome our nation.  We cannot just stand by and not say anything.  We have to be bold.  We have to be strong in Christ.  For really, the battle is the Lords.

A friend of mine, recently told me, that when we were growing up,  she did not like me then, because she thought, I was political.  I did not realize this political side of me, and I have not spoken, as boldly as I have, until this recent race, for our President.  But I am speaking very clearly politically, and as a Christian.  Do I care if people like me?  Yes, I do.

But, I care more, that I please my Lord, and He likes what I do.  I take into consideration, His sacrifice, on the cross, it was too great.  He took each beating, and became the penalty for our own sins.  He sets us free, in His love.  He speaks to our souls, with love, to guide us daily.  Yes, I know the difference before I accepted him, and now.  So I am bold to say this all.  Souls are at stake.

If people do not like me, because of what I write its not my problem.  I trust God.  His angels are about me.  Psalm 91:11.  For he shall give His angels, charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  This word, is for me….And for all those, who love him.  Jesus is not a respecter of people.  He loves us all.  White, brown, red, yellow, black.  But I write this, because this is spiritual warfare.  A matter of good and evil.  So I stand with my armor on.  For God will bless those who bless me, and curse those who curse me.  Genesis 12:3. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:  and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.   

I have to say something, because many Christians, do not know, the difference.  And are being misled.  Its like the saying, some say, that many have drank the Kool-aid, and been influenced by the Jedi-wand.

So what I write, is based on the word of God.  The King James bible, and it is based on my relationship, with Christ, and not with religion.

I feel like I have to specify this, because religion, has been mentioned, in some of the debates concerning this.  For some religions, have been made specific, and have made mention of some things, that they believe should be followed, and adhered to, but yet, some of the people, who are supporting the Democratic party, do not follow these.  And yet, they say they are Christians.

This is not about religion, rules, and traditions, made by men, but by my relationship with Christ, my savior.  The Lord God almighty, who has clearly given us commandments, and His word, to live by daily.  It is our responsibility, to search His truth, yes even in matters of voting.

And I am talking first, and foremost about Abortion.  This is very close to my heart, for it is wrong.  Christians, if anyone is a true Christian, they should be able to see, and clearly define, that this is wrong in the sight of our Lord.  Its not a womans right, for that child within her body. This right, does not belong to her, but to that child and God.  But a helpless child, cannot stand for its rights in this.  It is trusting that its mother, would protect it.  But if she, a woman does not know what God says, Thou shalt not kill.  Exodus 20:13.  And that, in the fear of God understands, this is a commandment from God.  She will think this is right, and believe, the ideology of this democratic party.  For they strongly support it.

But….How can she know?  Unless she knows what God says…And, I will not go into the deep legal issues, of rape, etc.  But heres a thought, a moral thought, of right and wrong….Why not let the child live, and give it up for adoption, to someone, who will love that child.  Give it the right, give it the chance to live.

That is why, God is using people, like Romney/Ryan to support the right of helpless little babies.  But this current administration, does support abortion, and this really strikes me as strange, since our President, is a minority.  But, a racist, against minorities, years ago, implemented abortion clinics, to cause a form of genocide.  Her goal, was to eliminate, minority babies.

These things, I do not address to someone, who is not a Christian, because they have no understanding, of what God says, because they have denied God.

But for you, who is seeking God, seeking answers to prayer, seeking a better life, how can you follow Christ, with a clear conscience, and yet vote Democratic?  God is not mocked.  We cannot go to a Holy God, and ask for answers to prayer, if we are not being obedient, to His Word, and now following the agenda of the world!  We are called to separate ourselves from the world, and follow Christ.  His ways, His truths, for their are many who are anti-Christ, anti-God, anti-religion, for that matter.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man, love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.  Little children it is the last time;  and as ye have heard that anti-christ shall come, even now are there many antichrists:  whereby we know that is the last time.  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us;  but they went out, that might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy one, and ye know all things.  I John 2:15-20

Dear friends, the Democratic agenda is anti-Christ.   

The democratic agenda, and its ideology, is an agenda, that comes from the world.  Do not forget, that the DNC denied God, and Israel, our friend, when they could not agree, to disagree implementing this in their platform.  Christ, told us, a house divided cannot stand.  But he knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and a house divided against a house falleth.  Luke 11:17.  If you are supporting a house, that is divided, and will fall.  You will fall as well…..

How can we as Americans, expect them to unite us, when they are themselves, divided?  They cannot unite a country, because their is division.  And talking about division, what about the recent tape that has surfaced, from the Daily Caller, that gives information, and from the President himself, inciting that racism, was the reason, New Orleans, was not getting speedy relief?

These kind of things, do not bring unity in our nation, or with our God.  What about the tape, that also incites, the President, stating we are not a Christian nation?  How insulting that is to many Christians.  We love our Lord.

For, our foundation is on the Judea principles, that stem from Gods word, the King James bible.

God is not mocked, and when we affiliate ourselves, with those in leadership, who deny our Lord, by voting for them, etc.  We are denying, what God says.  And pure and in simple terms, this brings judgement, to our nation, and for us individually.

We have for four years, seen the track record of this administration, and do you really think you can stand for four more years of this?  The economy is crazy, gas is sky high, and greed, at an all time precedent.  Yes, I am one of these people, who believe, God will provide.  But I have my part in it.  I must separate myself, from the things, that offend God, so I can be blessed.  And blessed I am….

There are many agendas, and special interest groups, that now support the Democratic ticket, and they are not for the interest of unity, in our country, but do cause division.  Their sole purpose, is for their interest, and does not support, the American, and patriotic, views, our forefathers, brought, when they founded this country.

When I was growing up, I was raised on the Democratic party.  But that party is not the same.  The values are not the same.  It has gone, in a totally different, direction.  When I was growing up, you could pray in school.  You pledged your allegiance to the American flag.  Patriotism, was encouraged, for we had seen, by history, how our American soldiers, have gone to war, and to protect our Democratic rights.  Based on the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence.

Rights, slowly, are diminishing, and I see, if this Democratic party, has its way, now, you can count, on more of your rights, diminishing.  American Christians better wake up, and fight a good fight of faith, and see this, because if you do not, you will not have anyone to blame, but yourself.  God, does not change.  We cannot implore and pray to a holy God, if we as a nation, are in sin, and promoting, or following Democratic values.  This will bring curses, and an evil, to this great land, if we do not see the truth in this.  There are other issues, that go against the truth of Gods word, for example, same sex marriage.  God promotes, marriage, between a man and a woman.  Period..

I do not judge anyone here, or tell you this in any kind of hate.  For I do love, you, as Christ loves, you.  With compassion.  If my words, convict you good, then go to Christ, repent, and turn from the sins.  But my words, and the words, I am writing here, are not meant to condemn.  That comes from the devil.

No, Christ, is calling to you, and asking you to search your heart.  He is asking you to see the difference, in these political parties.  He is telling you to look at your own relationship with God, and now is the time, to make amends with Him.

Maybe you do not know Christ.  Maybe you never were introduced to Christ, as your Lord, and savior, but you can change your mind, and your heart, for eternity.  For my friend, this post, is not just to tell you to take a different approach in politics, and to vote, Republican right now.

It is to implore you, to seek a safety net, for your salvation.  For one’s Salvation, is at stake, in choosing, these political choices.

I will say, here for the record, I will not be affiliated, with any political party, that has mocked my Lord, that contradicts, His truth, that supports special interests.  That supports Abortion, and Same-sex marriage.

I may love the sinner, but I will not be affiliated with them.  For good manners are corrupted, by these kind of relationships.  The word, of God says, be not unequally yoked with darkness.  With the ideals of the world.  Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  II Corinthians 6:14.   

In fact, I have friends now, that are democrats, but if they see how I feel now, how Christ feels, I won’t have anything to do with them after the election.  I am giving them a chance.

Maybe Christ will give them more of a chance, in His graciousness, but I cannot for my own, conscience, be a phony, and not be loyal to my Lord.  So, I will cut off these friendships.  So, if you see me no longer as a friend, on FB etc.  You will know why.

I will say, here publicly, that I am voting for the Romney/Ryan ticket.  I am voting for America, for God to bless our country.  I am voting, against Socialism values, that this present administration, is trying to creep in.  By taking from the rich, to give to the poor.  By hurting our elderly, in the health plan, that was pushed through, without, the voice, and voting of Americans.  For all Americans, who will be taxed, and yes fined, if they do not support this.

I am voting, for a gentleman, Mr. Romney who I see, has integrity, and compassion, for all people.  He is noble and caring, even in His closing comments, he supported our military.  They have fought for all of us.  To protect us, as a nation, and the freedoms we have.

I am a latino, third generation American.  My own father, was in the army of the United States.  My grandfather, served in World War II.  My father, and mother told me stories of racism.  Being denied, in restaurants, because they were hispanic.  So I believe, in our rights, as Americans.  And Mr. Romney does too….

Including my race, he understands, latinos, who have been persecuted, for centuries.  His own family history, dictates, his understanding, because his own Father, was born in Mexico.

He can help create jobs, for our future generations.  But do you really want to transfer a debt, this country has to future generations, because we did not do anything about it right now, in our voting.

I am voting for Romney, because again, he knows, what Gods word says about abortion.  Its wrong.   I am voting for Romney, for he is a business man, who has an understanding of business, and knows, Americans need jobs.  And will create jobs.  I am voting for Romney, because he can implement a budget, one that has not been seen in this administration.

I am voting with a conscious, to please God.  This is my number one priority.  To please my Lord Jesus, because His sacrifice is that great.  Yes, I know, many do not believe, as I do.  But living in this great nation of the United States, I understand, their are differences, but this is the land of the free, we are given freedom, where others, can worship, and have the freedom, to believe, or not to believe.

I just don’t want my rights, or the rights of others rights, infringed upon, because the values, of this administration, does not agree with me.  And has special affiliations, and interests with others.

These are our rights, but we cannot expect to keep them, and please Christ, if we vote, Democratic.  I believe, Romney, is a clear choice, for that which is right, and which will please God.  These are “just my thoughts,” and my freedom of speech, to express this.  But I do not judge you.  I will not tell you, individually, that you are wrong, for those are your rights too.  I am not anybodies judge.  Thats too big of a job for me.  But do I want government, telling me, I cannot even talk about a leader in church, due to IRS regulations?

No.  This country better wake up.  You better listen to Christ, if you want freedom, spiritually, and in this nation.

If this, inspires you, go to Christ, and ask him.  This is not meant to be rude to anyone.  Just because we do not agree.  And I will not dignify any negative, rude, or mean and evil thoughts.  In my freedom and rights, to express this….

And I will say this for the record, it again, is not a matter of choosing someone by race, but of uniting ourselves, as believers in Christ, for unity, and for our nation.  For, it is something, I pray, would just open the eyes of people, to see the truth, to vote with a clear conscience.

I pray, you vote and pray for Romney.  And no, I will not address, his religion, of being a Mormon.  Thats his choice.  He has freedom of religion too.

But he does need our votes.  He needs that from us, but we need him, for a better America.

More then anything, we need our Lord, back in our country…..to be the great nation, He intended it to be.

So Jesus asks again….

IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AND FOLLOWING ME, WHY ARE YOU VOTING DEMOCRATIC?

Father, may we bless you, and God, we ask that you bless America, as we bless you in the way, we vote.  I put this matter in your hands, and I thank you, and praise you for this great nation, I live in, and I pray for Mr. Romney, and yes I pray for Mr. Obama.  Help us all, every race, every nation, that is represented in this country. May your truth prevail.  In Jesus name.  Amen

WHEN GOD WILL NOT LET YOU LEAVE A CHURCH



The Lord is thy keeper; the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.  The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:  He shall preserve thy soul.  The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.  Psalm 121:5-8  

How comforting this word is, with Love.  My Fathers word.  To know, God preserves me.  When we go in or out…..Whether we go into a church or leave it.  He preserves us.  He knows.  Praise God.

When I write, I always, pray, to write the heart of God.  I am human, I can sometimes, make mistakes, but when I write, I submit to God, with all my heart, and a prayer, for what I pray, is that Gods heart would be revealed, to whoever, is reading my writings.  So I always try to base my writings on the word, of God.  I don’t always know who my audience is.  But God does.  He knows.

I love the Lord, and more, and more, I want to be closer to Him, to share from His heart.  To speak a word of truth, but always in love.  It is never, ever my intention to hurt someone.  Or to make them feel like I am their enemy.  Or to judge them.  Or to even distance myself from them.  But, sometimes, when I write, I know this does happen.  Because some will receive it, some will not.  I don’t make this my truth, but Gods truth.  Because I do not have any ulterior motive, but to speak His truth.

For an example, when I write about using the King James Bible, and only using the King James Bible, I do not use this forum, to try and judge someone, but I write it, because deep in my heart, I believe, God wants people to use the word of God, that is pure.  That the integrity, has not been compromised.  Because He says, in His word, do not change or add or delete any words, because they can face damnation, because of it.  Revelation 22:18-19.  King James Version.  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.

It just makes me think, by His Holy Spirit, it is so obvious, because, other Bible versions, have been altered.  To change the meaning, to the English language or whatever, and even when scriptures have been removed, like in the NIV, why would someone not take this scripture above to heart?  God’s heart?

For when this happens, the integrity, the composition, is changed, the chemistry of it, so to speak, is removed.  It’s like a recipe, that has been changed. Say an ingredient, is added, like a chemical sweetener, yet it asks for sugar.  Even though it may taste sweet.  Its not the same.  One is a chemical, and one is natural.  Sugar is made from God.  Chemical sweetner, is made in factories.  It’s artificial.  Men, have changed Gods word, so it is, now artificial.  Does that make sense?  Anyway, so when I bring this to anyones attention, and it is ignored, all I can do is pray.

Well, recently, if you all recall, from one of my recent posts, WHEN PASTORS DISCOURAGE PEOPLE, BECAUSE THEY ARE DISCOURAGED….I did have a situation, where we left the church.  I won’t go into all the details, here, but feel free to read it.  Anyway,  I did share some things, from that post, that caused a red flag to go up.  So we walked away.

But, it was not Gods intention, for us to leave this church.  No doors would open, and no guidance, would be available, to say….Go this way.  In fact, I received some opposition from people in the body of Christ.  Some kind, some encouraging, and to be honest, some judgemental, and actually some rude.  Wow.  I did not know, that our decision to leave a church, would meet so much, opposition.  To be honest, and just forthright, I was a little surprised, that I got the response that I did in some cases.  Only, because, when anyone, leaves a church, they have their reasons.  For whatever reason, unless, we walk in someones shoes, how can we judge?  How can we say, that they should not leave?    What I learned, and my husband learned this as well, is that truly, one needs the guidance of the Lord, when they leave.

We have been around the church block, in my area, for a while, and we have left many churches.  Through out at least 25 years of a time span.  For many different reasons.  And even here, I have to interject, and say, we have met many good pastors, many who cared, many who communicated Gods love.

But, when you have had bad, or strange experiences, with the members of the body of Christ, who were wolves, in sheeps clothing, you do remember.  We have seen a pastor, actually, leave the flock, and abandon it.  And doing things, that were considered, not even worthy of being a good citizen, by not abiding city laws, and actually lying to a congregation.  Things, that hurt, the body of Christ, but the members of that church.  So, we have felt it more.

Some things, not at all, because of the pastor, but even because of schedules changing, in my family.  Or it could have been doctrine, not being taught, or just frankly, because we went to a church for years, and were totally ignored, not at all, loved, and we felt excluded.  And to be honest, God never stopped us.  Things happen.  People change, and just because someone is a Christian, you want to trust them, but we have been let down, and left out.  So, we have had our reasons, for leaving a church…..

But, for some reason, my Lord, God almighty, His reasons, that I don’t even know about yet, He would not give us a release.  From this little church.  We quit going to this little church over two months ago, I would say, and nothing would open.  We felt so disjointed, so out of the flow.  So detached.  So we questioned ourselves.  We questioned God, we were concerned, not to give place to the devil.  We prayed, we thought, about, why, we were so sensitive, to the pastors remarks.  What was it?  Why did we leave?  Was it worth it?  Aren’t we supposed to extend grace?…..

So, we went back.  No, the pastor, the shepherd, did not come looking for us.  But, Christ the shepherd of our hearts did.  In fact, even as I write this, I cannot recall, ever, having a heart to heart, with a pastor, who said, no please stay.  Or who really tried to get to know us, or understand us, by communicating.  But Christ did.

What I learned, from this experience, is because of our past, our sometimes, leaving of churches, we had baggage.  Things, that stayed with us, even though, maybe we even forgave, the treatment, we had received in churches.  Those, memories, a sense of rejection, we would just say; “Oh well”  and move on. But this did not happen, when we left now, even though, we just expected to go on.

So, even as I wrote in my last post, it was not to judge someone, but because of the baggage, we carried, we used that discretion, to see, what was going on.  In other words, because of our past, we had expectations.

I know, when anyone chooses a church, there should be certain criteria met, and the main ingredient, to me, would be God’s presence, manifested, with faith.  Love the flow, of the Holy spirit.  And yes, again, I look at the doctrine that is presented, the word of God.

I have to be honest.  Because when I hear the word of God, from any other source, then the King James, it does not stick with me.  It goes in one ear, and out the other.  For whatever reason, again, I believe because of the purity.  Maybe because when I hear it from the King James version, it does sound archaic.  It does sound, royal.  It does sound like the voice of God…..Anointed, in just being the King James version.  I pick up, the spirit, of Gods truth…..

Anyway, when we went back, for whatever reason, God made a change.  Maybe it was the prayers, we prayed, for the pastor, and this church.  Maybe because others prayed, and even prayed for us.  But, there was a change in spirit.  I sensed it immediately, when we walked back in.

The sermon, the pastor gave, was on forgiveness.  Again he brought up some hurts, from the church, and from his family.  But there was a strength, I recognized, His faith, was strong.  I could so relate to His heart, me and my husband.  Who knows maybe, he even read my blog.  I don’t know.  Maybe it hurt his feelings, to see, what I wrote, but maybe, and only God knows, but maybe the truth, I spoke, about when pastors, are discouraged, hit home, and this pastor took it to heart.  I don’t know.  I don’t know if God will reveal that to us.  Or if this pastor, will ever communicate.  I don’t know.

All I know, is after that service, we had a sense.  A solemn feeling, of knowing, God did not want us to leave.  Is it for a season, for a lifetime? I don’t know.

I do know, I want to go to a “promised land” and leave Colorado, and find a church, where I will be rooted, and we will serve, but only God, can open that door.  I just want to be obedient to God.  I just want to serve Him.  I don’t know, if God will use me, or us at this church, and I don’t know, or need to know.  I just trust God.

And I know…by this experience, God loves us.  He said enough.  You need to know, I am in this.  Stay here, till I tell you…..

So, I know, that God will intervene, when He does not want you to leave a church.  So here we are back again.  I am praying….

Blessings, and love in Christ, Elena

Father, thank you for leading us back to this beautiful little church.  Not sure, why things always happen, but Lord, my trust is in you.  I pray for this church, and the pastor, and that they would grow, in your ways, and truth, as I pray, that for myself, and my family.  Lord, I just have a greater sense of you.  I thank you, that you did not get mad at me, you did not insult me, or tell me I was unyielding, or I was walking in the flesh, you just prompted me, with love.  And your Holy Spirit, of truth.  Knowing my heart, would only want to please you, in your truth.  Not mine, but yours.  So, thank you Lord, for showing us, and guiding us, and to know, you order the steps of your righteousness.  In me, and my family.  Thank you Lord, I pray,to know your will, as we continue on.  In Jesus name.  Amen
