THE PROSPERITY MESSAGE, MESSES PEOPLE UP….

I have been a Christian for a long time now. And I just see how, one can miss it, by getting caught up in the “prosperity message.”

It is so deceiving, to try and search for God, for a financial miracle, but you don’t work on your heart, or your soul. You don’t make the priority, of Salvation, for you or others the goal.  Learning scripture.  Knowing Gods heart.  

I have seen people, who grasp onto that message, and even believing leaders, who are so full of it, that they have lost their focus on why Christ died on the cross for us.

They don’t see, how when Christ was on this earth, He was offended, by their selling of this or that, and He turned the tables on them, angrily.  In the temple.  

We are called to seek the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all things will be added.

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. MATTHEW 6:33. KING JAMES.

I see the fruit of it, from some that I even love dearly, but they do not make knowing God the priority, they are always dreaming, for this house, or that car, or that which they can compete with the Jones.

I see they support many of these leaders, who say very questionable things.

Even in this election, there are some who are so blinded by power, and wealth, that they think that someone, with this kind of prestige, makes them the answer to Americas problems. Yet they do not see the true fruit of a fake. A counterfeit. A mean spirited person.

So they lose focus on what God says. It does mess a person up.

And I can say this, as a testimony, because when I first started in ministry, I thought, everybody asked for money, and that was how you measured success in ministry.

Wrong.

God has a way of correcting us. Changing our hearts, and I am so glad He did mine. Greed, the prosperity message, is just an illusion to what the enemy can do to confuse a person.

You see, there is a lost world out there, and when people make the prosperity message, their goal, they miss out, in seeing what Gods goal and vision is.

He wants us to be saved. To grow, to know how precious our salvation is. To know His power, His sovereignty, and to reach out for the lost. To reach for the Kingdom for others, and their salvation. To see with hearts, love.

Its just sad, I guess, its just a sign of the times.

But it is not to late, to repent, to stop and see, the goal.

You know, God is not blind to many of us who are in need of a financial miracle, but He works on our hearts first. He corrects us. If we do not receive this correction, we are, our own worst enemy.

God can change things. If only we would work for the Kingdom, for His goal, then He would bless many of us. Our businesses, would become His business, to bless.

But till then, just look at the fruit. It is rotten, it is not what God intended.

The Prosperity message, does mess up people.

In Christ,

Elena

All blessings are connected to God. ALL BLESSINGS! And sometimes when I listen to people they try and take credit for it. They try to bring the attention to what they did. Look I don’t dispute what ability, one may, or may not have.

But it comes from God. That is the connection. Why do you think God gave you that ability? Why do you think, as a blessing it came through, and it came from this or that person, who gave it to you….Why do you think you got it? Because God is that good, that great, and His love is so deep. He makes a way, when there was no way. Jesus, is that way, the truth and life.  JOHN 14:6

And I just think, we need to be mindful, that all good things come from God, in one form or another. Its enough, to realize, how important it is to give God glory.

Its so important to acknowledge His great accomplishments, and love, that just may trickle down to you. Do you have food, do you have a roof over your head, do you have family?  More then anything, do you have your salvation?  God made that way through Christ.  And if you have not ensured your salvation, make the choice even here to do that.  God is using me to remind you, your eternal salvation is at stake.  Love Him, repent, and live for Christ.  Get a good King James Bible, and let God speak to you every day of your life.  Never be ashamed.  Never…..

Give God glory friends, it is the right thing to do. I Love you in Christ, and more then anything Christ loves you.

Look at this scripture slowly, eat it, and be nourished, with wisdom.

More then anything Father, I love you, I thank you for prayers answered, and not answered. I am just grateful, and I thank you publicly, and give you glory, honor and praise. You are the root of all my blessings, and all good things come from you. In Jesus name, Amen. 

O THE DEPTH OF THE RICHES BOTH OF THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! HOW UNSEARCHABLE ARE HIS JUDGMENTS, AND HIS WAYS PAST FINDING OUT. Romans 11:33

WHEN PASTORS OR PEOPLE UNDERMINE, DISMISS, OR CHANGE THE WORD OF GOD THE KING JAMES BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

I do not like to point fingers, I do not like to accuse, but when I see Pastors, or people changing the word of God, diminish, and undermine knowing it. I see how it hurts people. I see, how it can cripple someone. Knowing Gods true word the King James Bible, has an anointing, and a power, and when pastors don’t know this, and they water down the word of God, dismiss it, or just ignore, what God says, they are hurting their own souls for eternity.

Folks, we need to know Gods word on our own. Because many times, it does not come from the pulpit.

Today, I saw something, from a very, very prominent pastor, that told people, “you don’t need to know 25 scriptures.”

IF, in any context, to diminish promoting, or encouraging people to know Gods word, this is a disservice to the body of Christ.

No, I won’t say who he is. That is not my job. And I don’t judge him.  He will be judged by God.  Not me.  And we all are judged, by this.  We are all judged, by the words we speak.  We will all have to give an account to God.  And yes, we are judged by the Bible we use.  We do not want to be counted with the liars.  Read yourself, from a King James Bible, Proverbs 30:5-6.

But I do have discernment, between good and evil.  I am very sad, that so many need truth, they need Gods pure word, and people just brush it off, as if it is nothing. They are not in fear of God. They are not taking Gods word to heart. His commandments.

Just a thought here, because it has been established for 400 years, the King James Bible. God knew. He preserved it, but people are not seeing this. We have to know the truth, for the sake of our own souls.

Do you know your own salvation, is at stake? You can be denied access to the Holy city. Your name can be removed from the book of life. And the things, that you want from the Bible, healings, etc. They will not be available to you. Read this scripture and know….Read it very carefully.

FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THIS 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. REVELATION 22:18-19.

MEMORIAL DAY REMEMBER GOD


Today, is a National Holiday, Memorial Day.  A day, yes we need to remember, the sacrifices, of the many, men and women, who gave their life.  For our great country.  My father also served this country.  And I am proud, and blessed he was my Father.

For he taught me, that we are free….And he expressed, so many things about our country, that gives evidence, that we have freedom, because of those who went before us, and have given their lives as a sacrifice.  My father, believed in what this nation stood for.  But he also taught me about God.  Because a prayer was answered.  From our founding Fathers.  Who prayed for our nation.  Our nation, is a great nation, because “In God We Trust.”  Because we are “One Nation Under God.”

So with the honor, thanks and remembrance we give our soldiers today, we give our respect.  But, I pray, we would take a moment also, and think, with that, and more reverence and ponder on God.  For all he has done for this great nation.

You see, the truth of the matter is, because of God, this country is a place of refuge, it is a place of freedom.  Where else, can you honor God, in the way you want, or to be able to speak a word and not be afraid, of someone silencing your voice?  You can shout out to the Mountain tops, what you believe, because it is your right.  Well, as my voice today, I do shout out;

HOW GREAT YOU ARE DEAR LORD…THANK YOU FATHER! THERES NOTHING BETTER THAN A HALLELUJAH TO YOU LORD.”

I WILL REMEMBER THE WORKS OF THE LORD:  SURELY I WILL REMEMBER YOUR WONDERS OF OLD.  I WILL ALSO MEDITATE ON ALL YOUR WORK, AND TALK OF YOUR DEEDS.  PSALM 77:11-12

Christ, gave his life, so we could have freedom as well.  From the oppression of sin.  And thats why I mention this, because the Bible tells us, there is no greater gift than for a person to lay down his life for his friend.  John 15:13 GREATER LOVE HAS NO ONE THAN THIS, THAT HE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS.  Christ did that, so we could be free, now and eternally.  And if you have not given your life to Christ, you do not know the difference.  I do, because I recognized what Christ did for me, my life has been changed.  And I am free, from the bondage of sin, I was once in.

So, today, in my celebration of my Memorial day, I thank God, for sending his son, so that I may be free, and I thank the many men and women, who laid down their life, for my rights for freedom….and I call them “My Friends.”

I thank you my dear American friends, who have served this country, by giving your life, by sacrificing, even as Christ did, so I can have freedom to write this, to say, God bless America, and America, let us bless God.

Thank you to you and your families, for they sacrificed as well, letting you go off to war, or to other lands just to defend our rights.  I thank them as well….I call you my dear friends, with great appreciation….for laying your life down for my freedom.  For believing in what this nation stands for.  One Nation Under God…..And thank you Lord, for this great nation, that I call home, for as an American, I am free.  But more free because of what you did for me, on the cross.

Just my Thoughts….with love, Elena Ramirez

A PRAYER OF HOPE….

Lord, thank you for my Father, who taught me about you and prayer.  Thank you, that he served this country.  A country that has freedom to believe in you freely.  Thank you, for my Salvation, and that Christ laid his life down for my freedom as well.  And thank you for the many men and women, who have served our country, this great United States, bless them and their families.  Father, we pray you truly do bless America.  But I pray, our hearts would be opened to bless you.  For all you do, daily, for us.  For giving life, abundantly, especially in the United States.  For we are one nation under God.  And this American, does believe….In God we trust. Thank you Lord.  In Jesus name,  Amen

CALL UNTO ME~A PRAYER OF HOPE


Dear friends,

Prepare your heart.  Take a moment, and ponder on God.  On the wonder of him.  Let this scripture, soften your heart.  Let it remind you, all you need to do is call on God….He will answer you.  He knows your prayer need, and is able to answer it.  Remember all things are possible with him.  Thank him…..

CALL UNTO ME, AND I WILL ANSWER THEE, AND SHOW THEE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS WHICH THOU KNOWEST NOT.  JEREMIAH 33:3

Father, I just sense this is divine appointment, to “call” upon you.  That there is an anointing here in your word.  As, a reminder to seek you, to call on you.  To keep communication open with you.  To bring our cares, our hopes, our dreams to you.  To repent, when needed.  To cleanse ourselves,  from the “gunk” in the world.  Just to rest at your feet, as I seek your counsel.  To be in your presence, to feel your love.  Yes I call on you for that reason, in itself.  Lord, how I long to see your power, and majesty work on my behalf, and that of my loved ones.  Lord, I know it is in the key of seeking your word, renewing my mind with your truth, and being obedient, and yes being someone who reflects love.  And it is love, because of your example.  All efforts, seem to be nothing, if the love is not there.  Lord, I do call on you even now, and I trust you.  Lord, to the heart who has taken time to reflect on you, even here, show them great and mighty things.  Things, that they in their wildest dreams, could not even imagine.  I ask that for myself, as your heart servant.  Who longs to be a reflection of Christ.  I call on you my Lord, even in this Prayer of Hope. And I thank you, Father, Lord.   In Jesus name, Amen

THE AFFIRMATION OF THE LORD~I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


I Can Do All Things Through Christ Which Strengthens Me.  Phillipians 4:13

Father, I love how you speak to me, in the quiet place of my heart, and speak a word, to encourage me.  To know with you all things are possible, and that I can do all things through you.  I can be victorious.  I have the ability by your word, to accomplish things, I could only dream about.  Thank you my Lord, my God.  For, in this thought, you spoke and gave me specific instructions, that I will obey.  Showing me, I can do something so spectacular, and I can do it!  That strengthens me.

Lord, I humbly ask, please, provide strength to do these things.  As I pursue this.  Make a way, open a door, or close another one.  But let me see, through this process, you are changing me, renewing my mind, by your word, that I can do all things through you.

Lord, someone very special to me, needs to know this especially today.  For, there are many trials, and many tests to overcome just in this day.  But there can be a way,  because Lord, God, my Christ, you are the way, the truth, and the life, and because of your ability. You give the ability, to do all things.  Let my loved one see the  victory in this as well.

Lord I only ask this, in your ability because you overcame ALL things for many of us, for only those who believe….For through your death, and resurrection, and the ability to take the keys from the devil himself, for each one of us, this can be a reminder, a testimony, that we can do great things as well.  For we live, move and have our ability in you!!

And, Lord, I ask that, this would be a testimony, even here on this blog, that others would see this, and be strengthened in the inner person, as I am, by your word.  That yes, Lord, by you we can do all things, and strengthened.  In Jesus name.  Amen

The Best of God (A Testimony) This is a testimony of how God answered my prayer in a sweet and beautiful way.  I hope it blesses you.

DON’T DO IT TO IMPRESS ~ DO IT TO BLESS ~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.  I Peter 4:10

There is a commercial I have seen and I am not sure what it is for, but the message comes through.  For the service that is being displayed.  Each segment, shows someone helping someone here and there, and someone observes it, and then in the next segment, you see them doing something wonderful, or out of the ordinary for someone else.  It is called Love…and it is an expression of kindness, consideration, compassion, concern, thoughtfulness, to do something nice for someone else.  Sadly, in our world, such beautiful attributes are not always expressed, nor or they encouraged.  For we live in a world, where at times, such things are judged, and people wonder if you have an ulterior motive.  For some do.  So one cannot always trust the kindness of strangers.

Yet, we are all called to be an expression of Christ, and to show love to one another, hospitality, and kindness.  Have you ever had a bad day, and someone just smiled at you, as if they sensed your hurt, your brokenness, and sadness?   Like a baby, who is crying, and longing for attention, when that attention is received, the dear little baby cries more.  As if to say, you seen me, and you know.  Tears from a baby expresses that.  And after some deliberation, some coaxing, some sweet soothing words have been spoken, or maybe a bottle of milk given, the baby laughs.

Dear ones, let us use our gifts, to be a reflection of Christ, and his love.  Each one of us has a gift, and a strength, that in many situations, can bring someone joy.  That Can bring comfort, and hope.  Let us continue to serve one another, in our Fathers love.  So much so, that we want to “pay it forward.”   We never know, how we can touch a life, by some small act of kindness, that we share in the name of our Lord.

The truth of the matter is, we never know what someone is going through.  Unless you have walked in someones shoes, how could we?  So if someone, hands you a bad report, or they are short with you.  Remember, maybe your act of kindness, can bring them something from the Lord.  Use that gift to soften an angry word, or to just bring some peace.

Our world needs it, and more than anything, we need it.  For it is better to give than to receive.  When we give of our gifts, and callings, and we share, love, compassion, understanding.  A soft word spoken, a smile.  Even a dollar here and there for someone in need, we are being a reflection of Christ.  But what happens is in the giving, we are blessed.  We are growing, we are reaching a hurting world, and somehow, within us, something changes.  For the essence of beauty to shine through.  We are changed, more so for the better.

It is like a seed that is planted.  You may not see it grow, but God will bring someone to water it, and even care for it.  But by your kindness, by your expression to do something good, in your calling, you will reap a harvest from it.  Don’t hold back.  Sure you might even feel awkward, but reach out and touch someone with love.  Maybe your a good cook, and you can cook for someone who is in need. Or you can call someone, or just run to the grocery store.  That is a gift of hospitality.  Share in consideration of someone who needs it.  And not what you can get out of it.

Remember no small consideration, passes the eyes of God.  And you may very well be entertaining an angel, when you do something wonderful, in sharing of your gifts.  But don’t do it to impress….Do it to bless. To serve others,  Faithfully, God will bless you.  In many forms…..

Many blessings…..

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I just want to thank you for the kindness, and compassion you have shown me.  Help me to think of others, when I need to.  Help me to get my mind off of me, and what is in it for me.  That stops me Lord, from sometimes being fruitful for your namesake.  When someone else needs me to be an expression of my gifts and callings.   Lord, help me and give me wisdom.  To use my gifts for your will to be done in someones life.  Give me discernment, and understanding, Let me do it in your strength, in your ability, so you will receive glory and honor in it.  In Jesus name, Amen.
