HOW TO FIGHT THE SPIRIT OF SUICIDE AND GIVING UP IN GENERAL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3955.jpgI write this from a place of sickness.  A place, where I have the flu, or whatever it is, and it is trying to take my hope away, my trust in God, and where I feel so out of it, that I could just give up.  But God…  It seems, He draws out my gift, even at the worst of times….

As I try to rest, in the day, I am in a spiritual battle.  My dreams, and my spirit is restless, and I hear the devil, telling me to give up.  And I say no….

But God….

But God reminds me, to always fight a good fight of faith.  I am a warrior.  I have fought all my life to survive.  And I am older now, and I have not met success, in certain ways.  

Yes, my life is fruitful, because of my walk with Christ, He saved me.  He pulled me out of the miry clay.  Yes, my life is successful, because I do have a wonderful husband and son, who love me very much.  And the devil, has tried to take that away from me many times, but God, protected me, when it came to temptation.  Or just giving up, on my marriage.  When there was trouble.  

I used to fight and flee.  Because I grew up fighting alone.  But I learned to fight, and have faith.  And no, I have not met goals even in my writing.  I am so limited, but God is not.  In who sees my writings.  

But thats o.k. I will fight the good fight of faith, and continue on.  I will share what the Lord puts on my heart.  I will fight.  Life, is precious.  

But our society, does not protect life.  We do not promote it, or there would not be abortion clinics, throughout our nation.  

Irony of just who I am, my mother, was not able to have children.  She did not want me.  She did not want children.  She actually took medical, advancements, to tie her tubes, and it failed.  I was conceived.  But she did not abort me.  She did not stop the plan of God for me and my life.  I was born.  My father prayed for me.  I am an answer to prayer.  

So, I appreciate life, I appreciate the life God has given me.  Especially, after I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  I cleaned up.  Quick!  I repented, I saw how close I was to death, and even hell.

I will not take the cowardly way out, by ending my own life, even when things have been terrible.  And they have been, throughout my life.  I have missed the boat, the plane, and the train, in a lot of things.  Yes, I have regrets.  But I will not give up…

Recently, we have heard in the news of two people, who have given up on life.  They were people in the news.  By their accomplishments, by their gifts and callings.  But they took a wrong turn now.  By suicide.   I won’t name them.  My goodness, they need closure.  For their family.  And then there was a friend in the family, to my son.  He was a young man, and he took his life.  

Why?  

Why do people give up?  Why do they stop caring.  Yes, life is hard sometimes, but don’t ever give up.  That is a spirit of suicide, that goes totally against who we can be in Christ.  And that comes right from hell, not God.  

You have to know who Christ is, and you have to know who the devil is.  And the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Read John Chapter 10 from a King James bible.  

Christ, said, He came to give life, and that we “might” have it abundantly.  Might?  Hmm, what does that mean, when you are trying to sort out life, its situations, your hope, your faith, and you are trying, to figure out what to do?

It does not mean taking your own life, or giving up.  I guess, I just come from a place of faith, because thats who I am.  Because I have not always had the success, to say, my life is a success.  Or that I have lived abundantly.  I have not always.  But I dream about it.  I hope for it, and I won’t let go of God, or of my hopes, in having that life abundantly.

Some might say, because I am in my 60’s thats it, well I say, the devil is a liar.  

And I know it.  You see, “But God”….. has stepped in so many times, when I was at the bottom of the barrel, and saved me.  Yes suicide, and giving up, are options, but not if I embrace who I am in Christ.  And thats the whole point here.  

I submit to God.   I resist the devil, and he must flee.  I do it even here, in my writing…. I submit to God, and God can fight the battle in my sickness, in my healing, in my relationships, or in my life, in general.  I won’t give up.

I won’t!

I hold on, even now, and I write, and I let this out of my spirit, to proclaim it.  Because there are people, who do not know God.  They do not know how to believe in God, they don’t know, that there is always a chance, even if it looks like you are not promised tomorrow.  

I have seen as you have, many get a bad doctors report, and they believe, thats it.  Thats the end of it, just give up, take your own life, at your own pace, and they end it.  Thats so wrong. 

Look, my God is not an ATM.  I am not going to give you a bunch of bull, and try to twist your mind, or your spirit, by telling you, just have faith. 

You cannot have faith, if you do not know who God is.  Thats the bottom line.  You have to learn who He is.  You have to know, that He is not mocked.  You have to learn, and know, that He has His commandments, His ways, and we are to follow them.  Not religion.  Not some mans, rules, regulations, and traditions, that he established in a group, and calls it religion, or even Christianity.  

When I see, the distortion of Gods holy word, by so many, by pastors, by churches, it makes me righteously angry.  And I get that because, I know, the truth, the truth, that truly has set me free.  When I see corrupt Bibles, that are part truth, and part lie, yes I get righteously, angry.  

But yet, I don’t push my faith on anybody any more. Oh yes, I did, I would be a liar, if I did not admit that.  But…. I don’t try that hard any more.  I don’t give up.  But I don’t try to force faith, or force belief in God.  Thats His job, not mine.  

But I won’t give up.  Even if He does not answer my prayers.  Even if He leaves me like I am right now.  I won’t….

I will, write, and write, about His goodness, about what pleases Him, because I know Him.  I know Him personally.  

I don’t have a religion, I have a relationship with Him.  And it began, the moment, I saw what He did on that cross for me.  That He took those beatings, that He was nailed to the cross, and endured the pain for me.  The mocking.  The sorrow.  He took it, so I could write this, even now to you.

Don’t give up on life!  Don’t give in to the spirit of suicide, or even giving up for that matter.  After He died, He went straight to hell, to get those keys from the devil, so the devil, would not have that legal right, to make you give up.  Or to steal your soul.  But you have to start even where you are right now….

You know how you begin?

By His holy King James word.  By throwing away that pride, that stupid pride, that wants to deny there is no God.  By admitting, you are a sinner.  By repenting, for even giving up, on God, and on life.  Because there can be a tomorrow.  He can heal you.  Just by what He did on that cross.  He can heal you physically, and spiritually.  

But you have to humble yourself in His sight.  And yes, repent, daily, because we can sin daily.  Many don’t like to believe this, but if you backslide, you can lose salvation, because you gave into sin.  Do we not know, sin, separates us from God?  This is King James scriptural.  He says, He will blot out our names.  Look it up…

READ THESE SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.

BUT HE GIVETH MORE GRACE.  WHEREFORE HE SAITH, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE.  SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD, RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU.  CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS YE DOUBLE MINDED.  BE AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP, LET YOUR LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND YOUR JOY TO HEAVINESS.  HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP.  JAMES 4:6-10.  KJV.  

You cannot resist the devil, without submitting to God first, dear ones.  

And the devil is the one, that is telling you to give up, give up on life, give up on your dreams, give up on your health.  He is saying give up.  He is telling you that with a spirit of suicide for whatever it is….

Don’t you dare.  I raise up my sword of truth, to tell him, even now, he is a liar, and must depart, yes, I feel sick.  Yes, I hurt, yes, I am sad, but I will never give up on God.  I write this with tears, because I know what its like to give up.  Yet, I gather myself up, even if I have to crawl on my knees.  And I do…

And just this week, again, we saw souls, give up.  And it grieves me.  Because there is always a chance with God.  If only they had submitted to God, resisted the enemy, that spirit, of suicide, and giving up, would have left them.  It grieves me, because His commandment is thou shalt not kill.  Killing oneself, and the temple, He resides in, is wrong.  

I don’t know Gods mercy, in all things.  But if I do not do my part, how can I work out my salvation, with fear and trembling, of Him.  When we are commanded to fear God.  That is not taught by our prolific, ministers.  Because they just tickle your ears.  But I have nothing to lose but my sorrows, by telling you to fear God, and don’t give up!

Sounds easy?  Huh?  It is if we take His yoke.  He told us, take my yoke it is easy…..

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME; FOR I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART:  AND YE SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.  Matthew 11:30-31   KJV.  

Finding rest for your soul, requires your submitting to God, resisting the devil, and He will flee.  This is how we find our rest.

Not by giving up.  Till my last breath, I will trust God.  I will submit to God, I will resist the devil.  Whether or not anything else changes, or not.  I will try and do it His way.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.  

Go to Him now, bow down, in the sight of a mighty God.  Repent, tell Him you are sorry, tell Him, you want life abundantly.  Let Him heal you, and cleanse you, and renew you, for a new lease in life.  Read Jeremiah 17:14, it is a prayer, for healing…..

Yes, life, abundantly, by only doing that….. can start the process.  There is more.  A whole book, that tells you how.  And its not just in the book, I wrote, “HOW TO HAVE FAITH.”  But its in His holy word, a sword of truth, the King James Bible.  Don’t use anything else, if you don’t want to give up.

Yes, I could keep writing, here right now, but a little food for the soul, by writing Gods word, nourishes me, and so I close till, God says, write again, Elena.  

Write it again….

Blessings, and love,

In Christ,

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEALTHY FEAR AND UNHEALTHY FEAR ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3922.jpg

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEALTHY FEAR AND UNHEALTHY FEAR… By Elena Ramirez

There is a difference, I believe, in what kind of fear is healthy, and one that is not healthy. I am older, I am just sharing. I believe this is wisdom. But, I know some people will not accept this, thats o.k. Its not up for debate, or argument. I am just obedient, to God, to bring perspective. And you know what, it helps me, to understand.

But the healthy fear, one can have, and is King James scriptural. Is the fear of God. It is spoken of often in my Bible. I take it to heart. I don’t just reverence God, I FEAR GOD!

LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER: FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN. ECCLESIASTES 12:13. KJV.

I love my King James bible for bringing perspective.

Anyway, fearing God… Its one of the most healthiest things, I have learned to do. It keeps me out of hot water, it keeps me out of sin, it reminds me who has my soul. Who can change things for me. It reminds me, how fragile really our lives are, and how we so need God. In little things, and big things. The bottom line in fearing God, is knowing, He has power to send my soul to heaven or hell. Thats healthy. To fear almighty, God.

Healthy fear, is just common knowledge, sometimes, not to do something, not to go somewhere, that could be dangerous. But that really does require submission to God.

The unhealthy fear, one can have, really is sneaky, and can come from the enemy himself. If we do not have fear of God, or if we just are not prayerful, or we put our guard down. God tells us, He does not give us a spirit of fear. So then that tells me the enemy sends it.

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND. II TIMOTHY 1:7. KJV.

Unhealthy fear….That kind of fear, can come, to paralyze, you. To be afraid, to even live. To fret, to get paranoid. To distrust, even others. But sometimes, that is your gut instinct, from the Holy spirit, so you have to test it. Anyway, an unhealthy fear may cause you to just live in a way, where you are not fulfilled. Where you may get a false sense of reality.

I am not a psychiatrist, but to be honest, the ways of the world, and the ways of God are so much different, in relating to why things happen. I choose to trust the ways of God.

When something happens, to someone you love, and you see how some people are not kind, but manipulative, and they hurt others, or scam others, you do get that guard up. I have had a few of those in my life. Yet, I always choose to go on, and be the best I can be in Christ, and to forgive. And to know the difference.

Recently, this happened to me, because it happened to someone I love….and well it just made me think….

We learn from our experiences. It affects us. And today, it just reminded me, of the difference, between healthy fear, and unhealthy fear. I have stumbled, I have had both fears, unhealthy, and healthy, but what always has healed me, is the fear of God.

He will take care of everything else concerning me. Or you, if we just trust Him, and yes fear Him, as scripture says.

I could write a book on this….. maybe I will. It just depends on what kind of support I get, from God, and others in the interest…..But I hope it helps someone with fear.

Fear my friends, if unhealthy, really is not healthy for your soul. I do know this. Truly the fear of God, changes that.

Blessings, and love,
Elena Ramirez

TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING…..By Elena Ramirez

If we cannot take a stand for God, in just a little thing. Like not seeing a certain movie, or not going to a place that is notorious, for sin, or accepting people, in our lives who are bad influences.

What kind of stand is that? How can we stand against the enemy in a big thing, if we are not strong against him, in a little thing?

Folks, we can miss it. I am sad today for I see, the little foxes steal the vines…..

We are the vine, growing with Christ, but if we do not submit to Him, we can be cut off.

Don’t we see that? Again. How can we stand against the enemy in big things, if we won’t submit to God even in little things?

And take a stand against that little thing? We ALL have to see this…

DO YOU EVER ASK WHY I WAS BORN? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


img_1929DO YOU EVER ASK WHY WAS I BORN?

I am older, but you know you can learn and teach this at an early age. I believe we can learn simple truth, even as a child.  And if it takes adulthood to learn it, then change to a child.  

Sometimes, it takes the trials and errors, the sins, the mistakes, to learn, but, I always say, if I had only known, I would not have done some of the things I have done. I would have avoided, the sins, that took me back.

Last night, I had a dream about something I did as a child. I dreamt about the people involved, and I dreamt about my humbleness to them even now. You see, I hurt someone, I knew as a child.

I took advantage. I am not proud of what I did, and that is between me and God.

And yes, I repented, even then, but it was as if, God showed me, where a gift and calling was taken away from me, because of that. I don’t think I repented, because it was wrong, but because I got caught.  Then…. But now, I know. 

We reap what we sow. Galatians 6:7 KJV.  Look it up there. It made me sad. 

It humbled me again, to know, that yes even mistakes as children, when we should know better, can hurt us down the line.  But if we know, even as a child to seek God, He will show us truths.  

I come to Him NOW as a child.  I come to Him humble.  I come to seek His wisdom, and guidance, in small things and big things.  Sometimes it takes a lifetime to realize who He is, but who we are, and can be.  

Being child like, now, can have its benefits, you see, we are called to be like a child. In understanding, and growing, and seeking God, it can take a whole lifetime, to even understand, such things.  

But the goal, is to continue to be a child, in His sight.  To be someone, who seeks Him, can take a whole life to understand.  Innocence, even if taken away, can be restored, as you lay it down at the cross.  

But what I have learned, and it just came to me, is that, our lives, however different, are to reflect Christ.  To grow, to learn who He is daily.  If you have stopped learning, you have stopped growing in Christ.  

We don’t know it all, and to be hungry, for righteousness, His righteousness, is a gift.  No matter what stage of life you are in.  Stop being full.

WOE UNTO YOU THAT ARE FULL! FOR YE SHALL HUNGER, WOE UNTO YOU THAT LAUGH NOW! FOR YE SHALL MOURN AND WEEP.  Luke 6:25 KJV.

We can get full, and we can get full of ourselves.  Being full can be a sign of spiritual decay.  Hunger for that which is beyond our grasp.  But that can only be fulfilled in Christ.  Hunger for His righteousness.  Self does have to die, so one can live in Christ.  The old man, the old ways.  Ask God to do a work in your soul.  Repent, for being full.  Repent, for just being lazy, or not even searching.  

Friend, all I know, and I wish I could put it in words for you, exactly, but it takes a lifetime, sometimes to find ourselves in Christ.  To find out who He is.  But along the way, give Him glory, honor and praise.  Stir yourself up, in love, for His glory, and so others can see your light that shines.  

Don’t give in to the darkness, don’t take the bait, of the enemy.  That tells you its too late, or you or a loser, or you will never amount to this or that.  Use what God has given you.  Repent, repent, repent.  

I just know, that is such an important factor.  Truly walk in love with others.  Be kind, be accountable.  Be someone, who reflects Christ, by love.  Keep seeking Him, and you will find that path, in your life, as you trust Him.

Why is any of us born?  To know Him, to give Him glory. You can bring light, to someone who is in darkness, but you have to shine for Him, and in Him.

Someday, we will stand before Him.  The books will be opened, it will reflect what you and I did.  This is your chance.  In this lifetime, to seek Him, to make it right.  You can change the ending.  

Like a story, that you think has a definite ending.  It can change, by making it right with Jesus.  And then just keep growing. In Him.  Just get hungry for Him, His presence, His fellowship.  His kindness.  Then you will know the true reason why you were born.  

AND JESUS CALLED A LITTLE CHILD UNTO HIM AND SET HIM IN THE MIDST OF THEM, AND SAID, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED, AND  BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN, YE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL HUMBLE HIMSELF AS THIS LITTLE CHILD, THE SAME IS GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 18:2-4

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Corinthians 3:2.

I title this post this way, to make the point.  That I know, that I know, I am a faith helper, to help you, and others in their faith in God.  But I want to make it clear from the beginning.  Its not about me.  Its about God.  Its not about fame, or prosperity or even being acknowledged.  Which can easily begin pride.  

You can know something, but you don’t have to have pride, when you do.  Many times, people will have gifts and callings, and they forget it is a gift from God, and they think its all about them.  They think they are, then superior.  They think, that the ability they possess, is the reason for their success.  Or that separates themselves from other, and makes them better.  Wrong.  Why?  Because first of all God is not a respecter of persons.  

FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD.  ROMANS 2:11

Well, I want you to know and more then anything else in fear of God, I tell you… God wants to get glory in it.  

I AM THE LORD:  THAT IS MY NAME:  AND MY GLORY WILL I NOT GIVE TO ANOTHER, NEITHER MY PRAISE TO GRAVEN IMAGES.  Isaiah 42:8

And, anything, I do to help you in your faith.  Because again, God has gifted me, for His glory, is to show you His ways.  So He can be glorified.  And truly He does deserve glory, for all of the wondrous things He can do.  And does.  For His creation, for His power, for His healing abilities, and so much more.  For He gives life, and He can take it away.  His ways, are not like our ways.  

FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD.  Isaiah 55:8.

So, how do we begin, to get Gods thoughts?  How do we begin to get His ways?  I believe with all my heart, it begins with the bible we use.  You see, the King James is old, and has been preserved.  For over 400 years.  God knew.  Just this century men, and publishers began playing with the Holy word, and changed it.  They disregarded the warnings.  But we can see the warnings from the King James.  To get Gods thoughts.  To get His ways.  And I think if we begin to see that, we can begin to have faith.  

We live in a world, where faith, is not always encouraged.  If it was, everyone would be talking about who God is.  They would acknowledge Him.  They would not deny Him.  

Just recently, I saw a motivational speaker, talking, about the abilities people have to get success, or to make a difference in this world.  And this person, did have a sense about him to inspire.  To motivate, with good ideas.  But there was one thing missing.  And that was the foundation of knowing God.  And bringing God into the conversation.  Without that foundation of God, we have nothing to stand on.  

You see, without God, we are missing the point.  We are missing, the truth in why we are created.  Our thoughts, become empty, humanistic, without, seeing our whole being, really does depend on who God is, and who He is in our life.  We become self absorbed, but that can be cold.  That can be empty, without the spark that God can give, and because of who He is.  I wrote more about that in my page above, entitled “Conversations.”  Where I was discussing it with someone.  

Anyway, we all need help.  There are times, we have to come to the bottom of the barrel, if we do not make God a priority.  Life is not easy.  And when there is an enemy, who Christ warned us about, who comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Without God in ones life, we can fall.  We can be our own worst enemy, because we have not make Christ, the way, the truth, and the life.  

But there are things we have to begin to do.  We have to develop our faith.  This is why I wrote my book.  “HOW TO HAVE FAITH”   By Elena Ramirez.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  

There are things, I have learned, by trial and error, as well with success, how to develop my own faith.  But you have to try.  

If you deny God, you deny the only true chance, to be the best you can be.  With or without gifts and callings, if God is not the foundation of your life, your life, will truly not meet its potential.  

Once you stop denying God, and start searching for Him, you are then on the road, to make Christ the way, the truth, and the life.  You also though, have to have good doctrine.  And this is so very, very vital, to finding out who God is, but also hearing His voice clearly.  To have the mind of Christ.  

I say this, again, and again, because there are many bible versions out there but they have been corrupted, by the revisions, and changes.  The voice that comes from the King James bible, is the voice that is spoken by the Holy spirit.  But if you make changes to that, you will not hear Gods voice, but the voice of some publisher, or dude, or dudette, who changed it.  And that voice from its origin, is not the voice of God, but the voice of the enemy, the devil.  And this is where the deception is.  I know along with this more then anything, you have to be careful, in which bible you choose.  

Not only do I warn you.  But you must know, according to scripture, we are warned, not to change, add, or delete it.  The most strongest warning comes from Revelation 22:18-19 and this warns one could actually lose their salvation.  Please see it. 

I do recommend the King James.  

So pray my friends, draw close to God, learn who God is.  Seek Him.  Seek to obey Him.   Be thankful to God.  This is also a very important key.  We can overlook.  Start appreciating and thanking God, for every little thing.  Even if it is little.  Little things grow.  Look at it as seeds.  

I do want to help your faith grow.  I do want to help you.  But you have your part.  If you deny truth, if you deny true instruction.  You will not get the results you long for.  

You see, you have gifts, and callings yourself, that can bring glory to God.  But if you do not get this right, even here to begin with, you will not meet your full potential.  You will miss it.  

You could miss it so much, you could lose your Salvation, because you were deceived.  Heaven and Hell are real.  But if you do not search for truth to find heaven, Gods way, you could be your own enemy, and make hell on earth your reality, and future after death as well.  

This is very important to see.  Because sometimes, we are given chances, but if we do not do what is right, we can set the plan for even eternity.  You do not want to miss it.  

So, I pray, you are inspired, to talk about God, search for God, and truly sense with Him, and in Him, you can meet your potential.  Studying Gods word, your King James Bible, and hiding it in your heart, will produce the fruit that gives evidence to your own faith. 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
