SEEKING GODS DESIRE FULFILLED IS THE DESIRE OF MY HEART ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2234.jpegSeeking Gods desires fulfilled, is the desire of my heart.  

I love the Lord.  I thank him, and pray, to do so daily.  I pray to please Him.  To comfort Him, to give Him hope in us, as people.  Oh I know God knows everything, and I know He knows who belongs to Him, His precious people, His sheep.  But He is my God, and it grieves me, when I see what I do see sometimes…..

What could I do? And what can I do even now?  I don’t always know, but I am willing to try…

For,  I do pray to fulfill His desires, with the calling He has placed on my life.  

Life. It is a journey….  

Life can be wasted, if the focus is not on focus on God.  If it is not dedicated to God.  

I look back on my life.  And it brings tears to my eyes.  How much I wasted.  How much I sinned.  How terrible my judgment was.  How trusting I was in people.  And people let you down.  I wish, I had known more about the fear of God, in my walk, earlier, perhaps, I would have avoided some things….but I have learned. 

Nothing works, without Gods hand on it, nor does it bring joy.

I guess, that’s why I just have this revelation today.  Because He promises, that if we delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our heart.

DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD; AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.  PSALM 37:4 KING JAMES.   

But I believe thats in giving Him the desire of His heart.  

Just my thought…. any way.  I hope you ponder on that thought, and think about it, for your own life.  For your own relationship with God.  

See, its been a while, where I have tried, and I am not perfect at this.  But I try to get my eyes off of what I want.  What I need.  Trying to be more grateful thankful.  Less of me, more of Him.  I have had my eyes on myself far too long.  And made mistakes… that have hurt myself. 

It has changed my perspective in….What I desire….yet the scripture says, He will give us the desires of our heart.  

I see folks, searching for power.  For fame.  For money.  For beauty.  And to me, these things do not bring me closer to the Lord.  In fact, I would actually state, that I think seeking those things do not come from Gods Kingdom, but from the enemy.  Gods enemy the devil.  

FOR THE WICKED BOASTETH OF HIS HEARTS DESIRE, AND BLESSETH THE COVETOUS, WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH.  PSALMS 10:3  KING JAMES.   

So because he is Gods enemy, he is mine as well.  I will serve God, and I will be very careful not to give place to the enemy.  I submit to God, resist the devil, and he must flee.  

But I have, I know, by my sins.  I did give place to the enemy.  That did not produce righteous fruit, but even curses.  But those curses, are covered now by the blood of Jesus.  For I have repented, and I am very careful in spiritual matters now.  

Oh I know God can bless, but I have come to a place and its been a while, where I seek His face.  Not His hand.  And those kind of messages, where the prosperity message is promised, is so deceiving.  Because one does not grow. One does not understand who God is….

Nothing can take His place of just knowing He is there.  Nothing can comfort me more in a world, where anything is not predictable.  But who He is, and His promises.  All of them, that I find in my King James bible, that is holy.  

To me, having sweet fellowship, and peace, and just a sense of knowing He is there, blesses me, that is now the desire of my heart.  Sure there are things in life, I like, may even desire, but they can never, ever have priority over my relationship with my Lord.  

How I long to please Him give Him the desire of His heart.  By love, by obedience, by sweet fellowship, in prayer, by using the discernment He gives me, to know what to do by His Holy Spirit.  By understanding to try and keep His laws.  Oh many have a hard time with that, but God is a legal God, and thats where happiness is.

WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  PROVERBS 29:18  KING JAMES. 

Thats my goal, my job in life, to give Him my Lord, the desires of His heart.  That will make me happy…  Just to be willing to Love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind….

Hope this blesses you today..

Hope this blesses God more…

Lord, I thank you Father.  Thank you Lord Jesus, Thank you, for everything, my God, by your Holy spirit.  I pray, Lord, that I am always mindful to make my desire, the desire of your Heart.  You are God, and there is none else.  You deserve all glory, all honor, and praise, to be mentioned.  Forgive me if I have ever failed you in this.  I am sure I have. And it grieves me.  But I pray, to please you.  I do love you Lord.  More than ever….For thy will to be done, in Jesus name.  Amen.  

LORD, THOU HAST HEARD THE DESIRE OF THE HUMBLE:  THOU WILL PREPARE THEIR HEART, THOU WILT CAUSE THINE EARS TO HEAR:   PSALM 10:17  KING JAMES.  

In Christ,

“ASK YOURSELF HOW WILL THE DEVIL DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD?” By Christian author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2372.jpeg

King James Bible scripture says;

AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:  HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.” Revelation 12:9  King James.  

Look at that scripture.  It tells us the devil deceived the whole world.  How did he do that?  It tells us he is in the earth.  And his evil angels.  

I always try to get to the root of things.  That’s how God made me.  But I always go to His holy King James word, and connect the dots.  Here a Holy scripture, there, another Holy scripture, and it all makes sense.  I get understanding.  I get discernment.

HEAR; FOR I WILL SPEAK OF EXCELLENT THINGS; AND THE OPENING OF MY LIPS SHALL BE RIGHT THINGS.  FOR MY MOUTH SHALL SPEAK TRUTH; AND WICKEDNESS IS AN ABOMINATION TO MY LIPS.  ALL THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH ARE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS; THERE IS NOTHING FORWARD OR PERVERSE IN THEM.  THEY ARE ALL PLAIN TO HIM THAT UNDERSTANDETH, AND RIGHT TO THEM THAT FIND KNOWLEDGE.  RECEIVE MY INSTRUCTION, AND NOT SILVER; AND KNOWLEDGE RATHER THAN CHOICE GOLD.  FOR WISDOM IS BETTER THAN RUBIES; AND ALL THE THINGS THAT MAY BE DESIRED ARE NOT TO BE COMPARED TO IT.  I WISDOM DWELL WITH PRUDENCE, AND FIND OUT KNOWLEDGE OF WITTY INVENTIONS.  THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS TO HATE EVIL:  PRIDE AND ARROGANCY, AND THE EVIL WAY, AND THE FROWARD MOUTH, DO I HATE.  COUNSEL IS MINE, AND SOUND WISDOM:  I AM UNDERSTANDING; I HAVE STRENGTH.  BY ME KINGS REIGN, AND PRINCES DECREE JUSTICE.  PROVERBS 8:6-16 KING JAMES.  

Because of what God speaks, that which is holy and good, glory to God, I can or you can get that.  But I only get that if I am in Holy King James word.  Believe me, I have been in corrupt word, and I now know the difference.  And I will elaborate more on this and the above scriptures. 

But back to my question.  

“ASK YOURSELF HOW WILL THE DEVIL DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD?”

You cannot be oblivious, to this truth.  Even if you want to deny God, or His existence.  Because there is good and evil in this earth.  I think most of us see the evil in the earth, on a daily basis, and well, we can become desensitized.  We can get cold.  

We can even deny it.  Put our heads in the sand, and turn off.  Put blinders on.  Exactly what the devil wants you to do. But you cannot, not if you want to truly get knowledge or understanding.  

More than anything if you want to please God.  And it is a beautiful thing to want to please Him.  It does so much for the soul.  I love my Lord, but its been a journey and a process, but every day He shows me more, and more of who He is.  So yes, I do want to see His good.  I want to please Him.  

So, you have to see the good, you have to see God, if you want that knowledge or understanding, that can become wisdom.  I seek it, I think most of us want that.  

But I don’t want to get it from seeking entities, or things that are not of God, so lets go back to the beginning.  In fact, I repent, when I have seen things that are not of Him, that could teach me evil.  I never want to know how to do evil.  But thats deception, if you do want that.  

Lets go back where the devil “deceived” Adam and Eve.  He made them believe a lie.  He tricked them!  Let’s go back to where God, “commanded” Adam and Eve, not to eat from the “tree of knowledge of good and evil, not to eat from it.”

AND THE LORD COMMANDED THE MAN, SAYING OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN THOU MAYEST FREELY EAT:  BUT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, THOU SHALT NOT EAT OF IT:  FOR IN THE DAY THAT THOU EATEST THEREOF THOU SHALT SURELY DIE.  GENESIS 2:16:17  KJV.  

We do live in world, where the devil deceives people daily.  Tricks them.  We see it in the news.  We see it in some folks, and their lives.  We see it by the fruit.  Christ told us we would know folks, by their fruit.  Whether its good or evil.  We see it.  

But lets look at it according to Holy King James scripture, lets see how the devil, tricked Eve first with a lie.  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTIL THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEA HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN? Genesis 3:1.  King James.

O.k. stop look at that scripture really carefully.  She had not even addressed him and he tricked her immediately with a question.  And yet, the devil knew what God had said, but the devil tested her, to see, what she would say.  And do. In this, we see, he immediately undermined what God said.  He made it a question, and you know what I will just be blunt.  If you or I question what God says, we are already in a position to be deceived, by the devil.  And that covers everything God says.  

See we are tested daily.  Even if you have given your heart to Christ. Do we have faith, like God tells us?  Do we trust Him?  Do we obey Him?  Even in the word we use?  Do we walk in love?  Do we steal?  Do we commit adultery for the sake of love.  But its unholy love?  Yet we are commanded not to do that?  I could go on, and on.  But it all turns into the same thing.  Sin.  

Disobedience to God, and that’s exactly what the devil wants to do.  Deceive you.  Deceive you, so you don’t get your crown when you stand before God.  After you leave this earth.  Sad that atheists dismiss, God, but that just shows the foolishness of those who are deceived so you won’t even believe in God.  

Deceive you, so you won’t obey God.  Deceive you, so you will disobey.  Deceive you, so he can take the glory from God.  The glory!  

And God will not let that happen.  Because if you read the whole Bible, you know God will lock that ugly old devil up.  And God will not give His glory to anyone.  This is why I follow God, and not man, in even what I seek to know from God.  By the Holy Spirit. 

But right now, he is on this earth, doing his dirty deeds, and you have to ask yourself.  Are you part of the world, thats being deceived by the devil?  By even the word you are using, when God commands us, not to change it, add to it, or delete it?  Read Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19.  King James.

Yet, all these per-perversions of fake bibles, do that.  And thats why we are not all on the same page.  With God.  Thats why, the enemy, deceives us.  We don’t have the anointing, the unity, that we should right now.  

If we all would heed what God says.  And obey Him, by using the same Bible, there would be unity. We would see miracles.  We would speak and know the word.  We would see the devil shutting up.  But Christians don’t know His word.  Its sad to see, but they don’t.  Many do not.  

But how can there be, unity or understanding with wisdom, when there is so much confusion, as to what the word says?  We would have the power, and strength, of a holy Bible, if we just saw this.  From healings, to wisdom, to guidance, to knowing exactly what God wants.  

If we were on the same page with God in a King James.  

So…. When I say, I don’t want knowledge from other entities, I think about why God commanded them, not to eat from that tree.  Again, I try to get to the root of it.

Because He wanted to protect you and me, from spiritual matters that were not from Him.  He wanted us to obey just Him.  And if only they had gone to God, of course, He would have confirmed, the truth.  And the devil, would not have deceived any of us.  The curse, would not have happened.  By sin, by disobedience.

So you gotta wake up.  Because now, that we are being tested. You can be on the same page with God.  You can find, understanding and knowledge, to obtain wisdom.

You have to see, even in the word you use, you have to ask yourself, are you sinning?  Is the devil deceiving you? By using an unholy bible?  Are you deceived?  Getting part truth, but part lie, something the devil has put his hands to?  He is the deceiver the one who will confuse.  You are not confused, when you know Gods truth.  

You don’t question it.  You just believe when your in the right word.  It does something to your faith.  My faith is stronger then ever.  You just submit to God. Whenever the questions arise, about who God is, or why he does what he does, is because the devil always wants to confuse you.  Deceive you.  I know this. 

If you don’t know truth, exactly by what God says to begin with, and you use something that will corrupt your soul, mind, etc.  Because it is corrupted, you will be deceived by the devil.  

Short testimony, when God brought this truth to me, and my spiritual eyes were opened, about how corrupt other bibles are, my spiritual eyes were opened, and I repented.  Yes, for being fooled by the devil.  But no more.  My sword is sharp.  I know what God says.  And if I don’t, I know where to look.  I get a key word, and search in my King James bible, or bible app. and I look for truth.  I am actually hungry for Gods word.  Because it feeds me, when I find it.  It inspires me.  Comforts me. Because I then know what my Lord says.

When this was revealed to me, I actually dreamed I had taken a spiritual bath in light.  When we don’t obey God, there will be darkness.  There will be confusion.  There will be no power.  I walk in His power, in His love, and light, more than ever. 

Now do you understand how the devil deceives the whole world? And are you a part of that because you don’t use a King James bible?

Oh, and just one more thing, I thought I would add here, since there is a lot of controversy over our country right now.  As a Christian, do you support Trump?  I hope you do because if you look at my scripture in Proverbs, that I use as an illustration for knowledge and understanding. it says God put him in office.  

Don’t go against that, or the devil will deceive you in that too.  But thats another subject….maybe I will write about it, but maybe I won’t.  It just depends on what God gives me as an assignment.  

BY ME KINGS REIGN, AND PRINCES DECREE JUSTICE.  PROVERBS 8:6-15 KING JAMES.  

In Christ, and His love, I warn you all. For that matter, I remind myself, not to be deceived.

REFLECTING ON WHO CHRIST IS THIS CHRISTMAS DAY 2018 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4347.jpegIt is Christmas day, I just put my turkey in the oven.  And had some coffee with hubby.  Our son, is in the next room sleeping.  We will open our humble presents later.  We did not go all out, buying lots of gifts for a couple of reasons.  But we are content, we know why.

My tree is humble.  I did not put up our big tree, for a couple of reasons.  But I feel Christmas in my heart.

I feel it, because of Christ.  I feel it because I know, truly the reason for the season, is because of who He is.   And I was thinking, of how yes, He came, with angels announcing Him, and a star that guided wise men, to seek Him.  The saying is true.  Wise men still seek Him.

Luke 2:10-14 King James, is a great gift of scriptures, because it tell us about His holy birth.  

AND THE ANGEL SAID UNTO THEM, FEAR NOT:  FOR BEHOLD I BRING YOU GOOD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY, WHICH SHALL BE TO ALL PEOPLE.  FOR UNTO YOU IS BORN THIS DAY IN THE CITY OF DAVID A SAVIOR, WHICH IS CHRIST THE LORD.  AND THIS SHALL BE A SIGN UNTO YOU:  YE SHALL FIND THE BABE WRAPPED IN SWADDLING CLOTHES, LYING IN A MANGER.  AND SUDDENLY THERE WAS WITH THE ANGEL A MULTITUDE OF THE HEAVENLY HOST PRAISING GOD AND SAYING.  GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN.  

In these King James scriptures so much is said about what God is trying to tell us.  To give us good tidings, but to announce who Christ is,  to give us a sign.  And to remind us to always praise God.  I do even here.  Lord, I praise you, and thank you Lord Jesus.  And yes to have good will toward people.  I will elaborate on that, but even here, yes I do.

See, because if you do seek and praise Him, you do become wise.  But there are ways, and principles of God, that cannot be compromised when you seek Him. He is the way, the truth, and life.  But you have to do things His way, in His truth, for truly life abundantly. To give Him glory.   

I actually have learned in the way, it is in the Bible one may use.  It just goes to show that the King James is over 400 years old.  Its holy, and anointed.  It has power.  When I read His word, I feel and sense it is Gods voice.  Not another, who disobeyed, God in this, and corrupted His word, by changing it, deleting it, or adding to it.  

So, this morning, as I share this verse.  I want you to think about who Jesus was, and is.  See even though, He went on the cross for us, and died, He is alive.  He was resurrected.  He went to hell, and got the keys, from the devil.  So we can be free.

He is as alive as you and I, if we sat down and talked.  This is why I have relationship with Christ.  I do not have a religion. 

But here is one gift, He gives us, I want you to reflect on.  By His stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  King James.  

BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES;  THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  

I know He can heal anybody or anything really.  And I know this for myself, because He has healed me physically, on many an occasion, but also spiritually.  I truly know this.  Because I was so very lost, so very broken, and yes still broken in some ways, that I will not elaborate on.  

But it does not hold me back any more.  I accept that there can still be some healing.  In my lifetime. I don’t limit God, and I know I just must trust Him.  

But I want you to understand, when you are healed spiritually, you truly can sense your salvation.  You get an understanding, of what was, and is, but what can be with Christ.  I am happy this morning spiritually, and truly the joy of who He is, is in my heart, mind and soul.  Healed.  Its Christmas morning, glory to God!

I just thought, why He came.  Yes, to save us.  To be the answer to sin, to take our sins, to cleanse us of the curse of sin.  But to heal us.  

The world, so tries to tempt us, with this or that, and the enemy knows that.  I have not always been perfect in such matters, and I have had poor judgement, even with people.  

In fact, I had a “scrooge dream” of sorts last night.

I dreamt of a friend, that I thought was a friend in Christ.  I loved this lady dearly.  For many years, I thought we were sisters in Christ.  

Well, we did have a parting of ways, over a year ago, and I have written here about it, now and then, and I have tried to let go of it, but I think I am now healed from that friendship. 

I dreamt, I was very angry with her in my dream.  I was so angry, that if I could, I would have slapped her.  I told her, that, and exactly how she hurt me, and then I dreamt a door bell rang, and I woke up.  

It made me think that I must still have held great resentment for her actions, but I saw how ugly it made me feel.  It was like God was telling me that He was taking that hurt away, and to just let it go.  I thought, I had, but obviously my dream told me differently.  The door bell, I heard was a warning, I believe to let it go in His love.  

It was a Christmas dream that released me.  Because I do not ever want to be that way, with anybody.  I want to obey God, in forgiveness, and His love.  So, I am letting it go.  By even writing it here.  I am letting go of what I felt.  It is done, over, and a lesson of life.  I pray God bless her, as I go on. 

So, I truly believe one of my gifts of healing spiritually, is for me to be healed.  From that friendship.  The sense of betrayal I felt from her.  Even to God.  That I sensed from her, in choices she made that made me feel a Judas spirit and a Jezebel spirit. When I think of her actions.  See, if you play dumb, you will be dumb.  And she did do that, on occasion, but I always extended grace.  But she could not do that for me. We cannot change people, only Christ can change us.  

But I sense that today, I sense that, for many reasons, with great anticipation, and hope.  

I feel free, in Christ.  I feel hope, and love, and joy, and my trust in our Lord is so sweet.  

I sense the baby Jesus in my heart, to make my life, more innocent again, like a child like faith.  I hate sin.  I hate, what sin, can do, when we allow it in our lives.  I know the difference.  I know what Christ has taught me, but I just long for His presence as my present.  This whole week has been a lesson, in so many ways, that I have felt conviction to do this or that.  

I know by His stripes, I am healed.  Physically and spiritually.  I praise God, and give Him glory.  May you have a blessed Christmas.  

I know we all can have different reflective moments of who He is.  That the star that shined, above to guide those wise men, can shine for you. But you have to ponder on Him.  You have to be like those wise men, who seek Him.  You have to see, that there are things that will try to distract you from Him.  But don’t let anybody, or anything, separate you from the true love of God, that can only come from Christ.  

Merry Christmas, and happy New year.  

In Christ,

DEALING WITH TRUST ISSUES AS A CHRISTIAN ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0002.jpgDo you deal with trust issues?   I am just talking about in life.  But even as a Christian, one can have issues, and challenges in these matters of trust.

See, I am a Christian, and I had to learn how to trust God, from the beginning.  I grew up, with a very good mother, who loved me, but she had “major” trust issues.  

She had been damaged by many, and she trusted no one.  So she was suspicious  and very on guard.  So I grew up with that, yet, I knew it was unhealthy and very off balance, for lack of a better word, to be so untrusting.  

Because it can hinder relationships.  It can cause fear, and God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  

So, I learned to trust God.  

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART:  AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  Proverbs 3:5.  KJV. 

Look at this scripture, its very instructional.  And thats what Gods holy King James word will do, it will instruct, it comforts, it guides, it leads us closer to God, to even understand.  But its holy word.  Other bible versions, are someone else’s understanding not God, by the changing of it, and the words they use.  They make it no longer holy. Or anointed, and you really want the full power, and affect of holy word, from God Himself.  

But as you look at this scripture, we cannot, lean into our own understanding.  Get that quick, when it comes to “trusting.” 

We have to trust God, we have to do so, completely, without reservations, without question to God, though He is gracious enough to answer us, but something about having our faith, to “trust” God, releases something in us, that I call strength, and courage.  

Life is hard, and when people let you down, especially when you trust them, you do learn lessons in life.

I had a friend, who I loved dearly.  I never thought this person, would react the way she did, or do the things that she did in matters of respect.  Including her daughter.  Because I thought, I was part of the family, because of our friendship, we had in Christ.

But she hurt me.  And I really don’t want to get into all the details, or go on about it.  I think I have here, and its really an old issue, and I do want to be healed.  So I want to be careful about opening up an old wound.  

But it affected my trust.  And I even see myself, looking at other people that way, and think, are you going to hurt me too?  I have, done so, already, since this happened, and its not good.  

And I don’t want to blame others, for my experiences, in matters of trust.  But, I find, myself, trusting God more.  Asking for wisdom, and guidance, because I felt burned.  

I don’t think I can trust anybody like I did her, the damage is done.  Sure I forgive, but something changed in my heart, and well, like I said, I was brought up with that, negative energy, so I know, only God, can help me.  So its more of a challenge, now then ever.  

Have you ever noticed, the enemy tries to attack you in things, you have experienced?  Like a cycle it tries to come back.  Well I plead the blood of Jesus, aware, and commit to trust Him more.  To submit to God, resist the devil so he can flee. 

I don’t know where you are or if this will help.  But I share it, I write it, because I know who God is, and only He can help us with our issues of trust.  

As a Christian, I know this.  If you are not a Christian, I recommend you do give your heart to Christ.  Repent, for your own lack of doubt, or trust in God.  Or if you have caused someone, to hurt, because they trusted you, and you burned them.  Again read a King James, the anointing is there, for your faith, in anything.  

I don’t know how people do it, without God, without Christ.  I don’t want to find out.  See thats my reassurance in a world, that leaves Him out.  I won’t, ignore Him, because I do trust God, and thats the greatest strength, I get in life.  

Blessings, and love,

WHEN THE DEVIL WHISPERS DOUBT REBUKE HIM GO TO GOD GO BACK TO THE KING JAMES BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0564.jpgFrom the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth.  And even with a question.  Which brings doubt.  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1  King James.

See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.  

The battle will be in the mind.  We will be tossed to and fro.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See how that scripture talks about doctrine?

We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit.  From that tree.  And she gave the right answer.  But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.  

AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.  FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.  GENESIS 3:5  KJV.

What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.  

And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil?  Because He loves us that much.  So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses.  That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God. 

So we have to be aware of the enemies antics.  We have to remember when we doubt.  When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous.  Thats actually stupid.    So I don’t challenge what God says.  I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it.  That gives me hope.  That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth.  But Gods truth, will never let me down.  

SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH:  THY WORD IS TRUTH.  JOHN 17:17  KJV.  

What does God really say?  This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.  

Because they do make one question what God really says.  But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.  

I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings.  Of corrupt Bibles.  Since, I use a KJV.  I don’t get that confusion.  Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James.  Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying. 

Eve did not obey.  Adam did not obey.  But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better.  We do not have to question it.  But…by obedience.  Thats showing God we are obeying.  Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.

If you are in that battle of the mind.  In anything, go to God.  Rebuke the devil.  Thats a spirit of confusion.  And God is not the author of confusion.  

FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS.  I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.  

I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.

But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.

Always ask God. Always.  In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate.  So I can know…..

Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.

UNDERSTANDING WHY MANY ARE TURNED OFF WITH RELIGION ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If I was searching for religion, I would want truth.  I would want something, that would bring me closer to God.  So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants.  How to survive.  

More then anything how to thrive in life.    

There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.  

Or how some get misled.  Or fall into cults.  Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him.  Yet they get misled.  

First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:

Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups.  These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.  

Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.  

These people leave out one great element, and that is love.  Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust.  I am talking about holy love.  Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments.  And just Him.  And loving others.  Strange how they leave that love out.  And that it is a commandment.  They leave it out.  They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love.  You have to listen carefully.  

The sad thing though, is many claim they do.  They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say.  They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on.  But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say.  They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is.  They pick and choose.  

Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth.  You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.  

Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God.  Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin.  That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.  

YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?  MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.  

Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision.  It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible.  GET A KING JAMES BIBLE.  Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.  

If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church.  A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would.    Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.  

I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway.  And where he did not believe there was a hell.  And that message is so wrong.  But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul.  And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong.  As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic.  And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads.  And he is the blind leading the blind.  He does become branded a Heretic.  But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.  

The movie is entitled:  Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate.  Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it.  Because hell is real. 

Maybe this is why I write.  Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies.  They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.  

I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself.  Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies.  You need to search for God yourself.  So you can know.  Religion, will not do that.  

Its a turn off to many.  And I understand it.  The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says.  Religion.  Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think.  And its wrong. 

I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.

So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free.  One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.  

I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer.   By seeing, I needed to repent.  By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.

I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate.   I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water.  But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference.  I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.  

AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE.  AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.  

JOHN 10:4-5  King James.  

Look, I don’t know who my audience is here.  But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God.  Don’t stop searching for God.  

You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses.  And that we are all the same.  We are not!  

And you don’t want anything to do with them.  I understand that.  I stay away from them too.  But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is.  You need truth, friend.  

Don’t search for religion friend.  Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings.   Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ.  Never a person. 

I would start by just a prayer.  Repenting, admitting, your sins.  Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you.  Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you.  Or implemented as a rule for you.  

See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search.  Don’t deny the law.  Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law.  We do.  

I recommend a King James bible.  For holiness.  Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much.  Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives.  So use only a King James bible.

Pray to Him daily.  And I also believe in daily repentance to God.  Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent.  This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him.  He is your greatest friend.  He will never leave or forsake you.  He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.  

You need to keep it up, or you will get cold.  If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.

IMG_0012  

Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.  

Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off.  But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ…..

DISCOVERING THE JOY FROM DEPRESSION ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2198.jpgDISCOVERING THE JOY FROM DEPRESSION ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY (EASTER) By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

SURELY HE HATH BORN OUR GRIEFS, AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS:  YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED. BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES, THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  Isaiah 53:4-5. KJV.  

I was depressed, beginning Good Friday.  It was a different kind of depression.  I was so sorry, for my past sins, sins, I have repented for.  I was depressed for lost time.  

I was so depressed, that I got off of Social media, early that day, even though, I do get off, for Sabbath, which starts Friday evening.  I got off social media, early in the morning.  I was challenged.  

I was troubled, I felt like the things I saw, and viewed on Fb, etc.  Were so negative.  So, challenging.  I saw spiritual leaders, proclaiming things like hell wasn’t even there, and it just angered me.  I knew, I could not stay on line, with all the things I was seeing, it bothered me.  It depressed me.  I want to be a good example, but if I had stayed on, I probably would have gotten into an argument.  I had to quiet my soul, my spirit…

Because it was as if the enemy, was laughing, and it made me sense, to know, that we are in end times.  It is a lost world out there.  And when I see, even good natured Christians, so oblivious, to the times, I just want to scream out, can’t you see, there are lost souls out there?  What can we do?  Jesus died for our sins.  

And rather then argue, or make anybody feel bad, or angry, I just got off line.  

It made me think of how the disciples must have felt, after our Lord Jesus, was crucified. They must have felt hopeless, they must have felt so discouraged.  How could they have hope in His resurrection?  They did not know that He would arise from the dead?  Or did they?

FOR AS YET THEY KNEW NOT THE SCRIPTURE, THAT HE MUST RISE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD.  JOHN 20:9  KJV.  

 What about doubting Thomas?  He did not believe.

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, THOMAS BECAUSE THOU HAST SEEN ME, THOU HAST BELIEVED:  BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HAVE NOT SEEN, AND YET HAVE BELIEVED.  JOHN 20:29  KJV.  

How can we believe?  How can we trust God?  Well, from my own experiences.  I just have a sense to know, there is no other option but to believe.  And to trust God.  For me anyway. I have to try and obey, and I have to try and serve God with all my being.  I have to watch my step, and my love walk.  I have to remember Gods power, and to have fear of God.  I have to remember always the sacrifice of Christ.  

I grieved this weekend.  It was a very strange sense of depression I had.  I felt pretty hopeless, to be honest.  I am not going to lie.  There are factors in my life, that just don’t seem to find resolution, or healing in, and I actually felt this week, that the enemy mocked me, laughed at me, and told me, “I have stolen so much from you.”  I hate thieves.   I hate what they represent.  Anyway, hate is such a strong word, but I hate what the devil has stolen from me.  

But I did have a sense of hope, to know only God, can restore.  So I prayed…

This has helped me.  

Today, Resurrection Sunday, I did not go to church.  I don’t have a church to go to.  But, I woke up with some joy.  I woke up, knowing that today is the day, the Lord has made, and I will rejoice in it.  I woke up, knowing that Christ has risen.  I woke up, knowing the disciples saw Christ again, and were joyful, and their sorrow, sadness, depression, was changed that Resurrection Sunday, because of Christ.  

I felt the Holy Spirit whisper to me….  

“Find joy, in the little things.”

So profound, but it stirred my spirit up.  The little things, the little things, that do bring me joy.  Oh I could say them, even here, but I don’t want you to confuse my “Little things” with your little things, or big things for that matter.  

Because we are all different.  We all have different lifestyles, experiences, hardships, and well comparing is never good.  

But we must be united in that love.  That love that binds us closer to Christ.  Christ said, in John 13:35 KJV.  Thats how they will know we are his disciples, by the love we have, and for one another.

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.   

Love is not a little thing, but beginning to love, as small as it is, for whatever reason, can make it bigger. 

So, I have a different perspective, this morning. My Lord, has taken my griefs, and sorrow, and healed my spirit.  

This Resurrection Sunday.  I just have a sense, that small things can grow into big things.  But, I am not looking at that, I think I am just searching to find the beauty and joy, in just what Christ has given me, provided for me, shown me, and revealed who He is in these matters.  I just know, I fall short of His glory.  I just know, I am imperfect, and have flaws.  I just know, only He can heal me, save me, and bless me.  

So, I am sharing.  I am sharing, what has blessed me, as I am so grateful for my Salvation.  You know, Salvation, is such a gift, its a big gift, one should never take for granted.  But, having the realization that I was a sinner, long ago, and just accepting Christ as my savior, repenting, may be a small thing to some, but as small as that awakening was, it is, the biggest thing, I could do for my life.  

I am grateful.  I am finding joy, in the small things in life…..

Life is too short my friends, to be depressed.  To be sorrowful, to let the enemy steal our joy.  When Christ paid the biggest sacrifice for our sins, He paid the penalty for our sins.  Thats a big thing……  I never want to take for granted what He did on the cross for me.  

Because He told me in my spirit, this morning to “find joy, in the little things.”  I intend to do so, to be mindful, to look for the little things, so I can have hope.  

Blessings and love,
