FREEDOM OF SPEECH DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Elena Ramirez
I am grateful to God for our freedoms, here, in the United States. Many are using that right, even now with our new President. Donald J. Trump. To protest, and express how they feel. But they cross a line, when they riot.
I do not agree with many of these views. Because they are not my core values, but I do respect freedom of speech. But what I see, is many hide behind their computer, or even publicly say, and do things with freedom of speech that makes me cringe. They abuse it.
So lately, I don’t know, I have been seeing a lot of abuse. By many. And I guess it even concerns me, when I see a brother or a sister, in Christ abuse it.
People, I love.
Look, God gives us each a conscience. But maybe you will just consider what I am about to say as love. Maybe a guideline to help you.
But let me ask you a few questions…
Is what your sharing, is it truth?
Is it a lie?
Is it love?
Or is it hate?
Is it mean spirited?
Is it something, that will bring understanding?
Is it something, that is not a bad example for others to learn from? Hmmm.
Is it something that respects?
Is it something that disrespects?
Does it bring unity to us as Americans, and yes even people of other races, creeds, religions etc.
Or does it set out to cause division?
Are you promoting life? Or are you promoting something that hurts life? And takes it away…..
Is your agenda, Gods agenda?
All of these things are just things we can miss. I know, I probably do. And for that I repent to God. We need to find the balance. I am not your conscience. You are. I know, myself, I have erred….
But I also know…..
If God is your savior, you know, He knows your thoughts…..
But there are things, I just shake my head at, because its as if the person, is not really thinking…..
For, when I see a brother or a sister, playing with someones emotions. And they put out something, that may make ME sympathize with them, and even bring out outrage, or anger, because they were hurt, or insulted, and then THEY say;
“Hey I was just playing with you” I was pulling your leg.
I look at that as very immature.
Its a spirit, you are releasing that is a lie, and then you call it a joke. It harms your spirit, because you are practicing lying….
You have to look at the fruit of it, and what it gives, and what it does for you. And yes even others.
I don’t trust lies, or liars, and when I see someone who I trusted use that kind of illustration, to make me think different. Or to play with my emotions. I do, no longer, trust the integrity of that person.
Its like the analogy of the little boy, who cried wolf. Making people believe him, but when they saw the lie, they stopped believing him. But the sad thing happened, the wolf really did appear. No one believed him, when he truly spoke the truth….
Look, I want to be very general about this. But lets remember.
Freedom of speech is a gift. Its something we need to honor, and protect. It should not be used, to incite, evil, or violence, or anything that goes against what Christ taught us in love. The report, should bring light, not darkness, to ourselves or others.
Yes, and truth does not always means it won’t hurt. It will…
But, use love if your going to bring truth to it. Look, I am a warrior, but even God teaches warriors to be diplomatic.
I take to God what my KJV Says, and I don’t want to just pick and choose, for my purposes.
Just food for thought, this morning. Freedom of speech…do you use it, or abuse it?
FINALLY BRETHREN, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE HONEST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE THINK ON THESE THINGS…..THESE THINGS WHICH YE HAVE BOTH LEARNED AND RECEIVED, AND HEARD, AND SEEN IN ME DO: AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BE WITH YOU. PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9. KJV.
I just realize if we are going to use our voices, we really need to stop, and think, and be responsible.
Accountable to God and others. In love… I never want to abuse this gift.
Blessings in Christ, Elena Ramirez
AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS…..
A letter to personal friends, friends, I know on Fb only, and friends, I cherish, friends, I hardly know. Friends, who are really no longer friends to me. Yet I call you friends.
Friends, I take that word seriously.
I want to start the New Year of 2017 on a clear slate. I want to make sure, that I ask God for forgiveness. First. Because He is our King. And well because sometimes, well, maybe I sin. And I don’t even know. That I have sinned. Maybe I think something, or do something, that may offend Him. So I repent.
But I want to take this further, with you my friends, so I write this as an open letter. I ask that you forgive me.
I ask you to forgive me, if I come off to strong. If I come off with maybe something you see as being, arrogant. Or I come off, like I am too good. Or a know it all. Forgive me.
I ask you to forgive me, if I write something, that you may take personally. And maybe, I did not think of you in that way, but you took it personally, as if perhaps I was judging you. Forgive me.
Forgive me, if I let you down. If I perhaps committed to do something, but something else got in the way, and you felt slighted, rejected, or put off by me. Forgive me.
Forgive me if I said I would do something, but it did not happen in the way you thought it would. Forgive me.
You see, more then ever, I want to be an expression of Christ. But I know, by wisdom, that we do not all see it all the same. We don’t always all agree. And we are all growing on the vine at different places.
If I share something, or tell you something, even generally, I would hope you would see, that I say it, I share it, because I love you. I love our Lord, and I love truth. I think the thing I hate most is a lie. I hate, how it deceives. Yet I know truth can hurt. So forgive me.
I just know as I look back on this year, that I have had good intentions, but they did not always come through that way. I felt misunderstood, I felt sad, that people change. But that I have too.
I felt sad when I was challenged, and I gave grace, but grace was not extended to me.
I just know its a part of life. We all may want to do the best, we can. but we don’t always come through. So, I reflect on my own life, to ask God and you all to forgive me, if I came across, your way, but you did not see love. You saw something else.
Forgive me. I reflect because I hope to learn from my mistakes. But I realize we all make mistakes. We all sin, we all come short of His glory. He is the only one that is perfect.
I really do want to try. I really do want to be a reflection of Christ. I really do want to clean the slate. Resolutions…. are wonderful goals, if they are committed by Christ.
I just pray, to be someone God will extend mercy to too. So thank you, as I ask for forgiveness.
I don’t care if someone does not understand this, or may mock this….but I know, being humble in the sight of God, and not being proud. Not being accountable, really hurts me more in the long run.
So, I say, Forgive me. Thank you, and God bless you….. May God bless your new year, in whatever you may do.
More, and more, and more, we see it in the news, we see it in reports, in communications, more and more people are denying God.
They deny Him, by rules and regulations, they try to enforce on others. They do it, by taking rights away, like prayer. They try and stifle, freedom of speech.
They do it by removing Bibles, from hotels, and in any way they can, they try to force their unbelief on others.
Unbelief…..how can something real, and true, deny Himself, to the world, when He exists? But when someone does not want to believe. One must know, God does exist, but He will not change, or deny Himself, but He tests us.
Well, we reap what we sow. It is a principle. Like what goes up, comes down. People, do not see, they are being tested. Tested, to see if they truly believe, and if they accept what Christ did on the cross.
God for whatever His reasons are, does test us. Everything, we do is written in the book of life. All of our thoughts, all of our actions, all of our behaviors, He tests us. He sees, if we will have faith, or if we will deny Him. He tests us to know whats really in our hearts, and our souls.
I can only surmise, by what my King James Bible says, which is holy and true, and anointed, that He also tests us to see see if we can know the difference between a counterfeit bible, a corrupted bible that has been changed, and revised. He tests us.
The words, are commanded not to be changed. Not to be added to, not to be deleted. Not to be subtracted. But people don’t see this truth. They are being tested. To obey, or not to obey.
Do any of you remember the story of Abraham? Read Genesis 22, from a King James bible. In this story, God tested Abraham. He told Abraham to make his son the sacrifice. Up to the very last moment, Abraham obeyed, when the angel of the Lord, told him, not to lay his hand on his son.
But now God knew by this “Testing” that he was obedient and passed this. God then promised a great blessing, in telling him. His seed would possess the gate of his enemies. And He would multiply Him, because he obeyed God. Abraham named that place. Jehovah Jireh….the Lord will provide. Because God provided the ram, for sacrifice. Like He provided His only Son our Lord Jesus, as the ultimate sacrifice, for us now, in the new covenant.
Do you ever think, what you do will affect your future generations? Like His. Do you ever think how your ancestors, may have had a part in what you deal with now? I do. Who knows what they did? But it was either a curse or a blessing.
So I want to do everything I can to reverse the curses, and to please God. In fear of God. I want Gods blessings, but only if it brings Him glory.
I see this, and I know, we in this journey of life, we reap what we sow. In other words, what goes around comes around. And God is not mocked. Yes we are being tested.
All of us. For someday, we will all stand before God almighty. But…Before that, we will see Jesus in the clouds, and the heavens will be opened. Angels will be on standby and with the trumpets, they will announce that Christ, the King will be here. Christ will separate those who are true, and those that are not.
I believe, we all will be judged. Because of the testing. Because the records will be opened.
Friend, I don’t know you. I don’t know what you have gone through. Why your heart, is the way it is.
But I want to implore you, don’t be like the world. If you believe, in Christ, as your Lord and savior, you need to see, what you are doing. You cannot, and I implore you, you cannot live like the world, and expect your salvation to be in tact.
You cannot. God has His law in place, His commandments, His ways, and if we do not try to obey, with the fear of God, knowing what the consequences are, we will perish. People perish, because of lack of knowledge.
We seem to allow all these things that are going on, and we are not strong, in the face of evil. The battle is the Lords, but God does test you. When you have a chance to speak against unrighteousness, or to praise God, do you? Or do you just turn the other way? And silence is expressed. But it is not golden. Not if anything we allow takes away the glory of God.
Do you expect someone else to do it for you? I have to look at myself, as well, but with all I have, I have determined, to give God glory.
Yesterday, I had a revelation of my own personally. There is much I am grateful for. That God has given me. All of it. There have been things I have asked for, and did not get. But there is also things, I did not want, and did not get, and I am so grateful. In this thought, I realized, I do not want anything if it takes away from God, His glory, that He so deserves, and is due. It was so profound to me, and gave me peace. Because I am dealing with something personally. My goal is to only give Him glory, honor, and praise. Anything else, cannot be the priority. But Him….
Tested, I know, what He wants. It is in obedience, with love, that I try, and by accepting Christ as my Lord, and savior, I cannot treat this gift shabbily. It came at a great cost. His life for ours, for our sins.
So for us to allow anyone, to take that right away, what does that say, when we won’t stand up for what Christ did for us?
All I know friends, it is written in my King James Bible. We are tested. And we reap what we sow. We can do our part.
But it begins by not denying our Lord and savior. Even in little things. He told us, if we were ashamed of Him, He would be ashamed of us, when we are presented to God the father.
Friend, do not be ashamed. Do not deny God…..The world will pay for it. But you can be separate from those that have failed the test.
Just my thoughts today, in Christ, and His love,
So obviously, the Lord is teaching me something, maybe you too, by my writings.
But yesterday, the Lord showed me the root of bitterness, that can be planted in our hearts, when we have unforgiveness, or hate, bitterness in our hearts. We cannot let it remain. We cannot let it take over our hearts.
How can we grow to be who we should be in Christ if we allow these things? Look at my previous post, for more insight.
Anyway, so I pulled out that root. I pulled it out, uncaring, and yes even cold in my spirit. But for a moment there, I almost forgot, to repent, humble myself before God, and to ask for forgiveness myself.
Why? Because God says He will not forgive me, if I do not forgive others. How we can forget. I am a seasoned Christian, yet we do forget. We can let the “old” ways back in, we are new in Christ, but if we allow the old ways back in, we have to start all over.
Symbolism. Remember the people of God, walked around Israel for 40 years? I don’t want to do that. I can’t not at this place of my life. I am tired of not making progress, or making the same mistakes over again.
So, this morning, in this lesson of life, Christ reminded me of what He said on the cross before He gave His life for you and me. He said. Forgive them, for they know not what they do.
THEN SAID JESUS, FATHER, FORGIVE THEM; FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO. AND THEY PARTED HIS RAIMENT, AND CAST LOTS. Luke 23:34.
These are very profound words from our Lord. Not just words, that remind us of what they did, but what we all did to put Christ on that cross for our sins. We sin!
Its our nature, we are all born into sin, but we don’t have to die from it. We can be renewed, we can be healed, we can be made whole and clean, from what Christ did.
But how can we if we do not know what we do? This again, is why I so implore people to use a King James Bible because the anointing and holiness is so important in word. And it has been changed, and people use bad versions, not knowing what they do, and that it has been corrupted.
There has been a build up, so to speak in my heart, as I deal with Christians, who want to fight about truth. Even about this, my calling to warn others about these bad bibles. With friends, who abandoned me. Burned me, used me, and even with those who I love, but again, they do not support me. And my calling. Sure once in a while they are inspired, but where is the support and love?
Something started growing, in my heart and it was not good.
Its not about me, its about Gods word, truth, and message. And sometimes well, the messenger is ignored. O.k. I get that. Am I glad to say it? No.
But, the truth is people, cannot respond to something you know, but they do not. And I do know this……that which I talk about concerning the King James Bible.
So Christ reminded me. “Forgive them, for they know not what they do and do not do.” FORGIVE!
I thought I was. But it was growing in me. It was a part of me, as I try to do the Lords work, and it gets in the way.
The thing though, shouldn’t I know better as well? Yes, but like yesterday, in my coldness, as I threw away that root. I almost did it without repenting, humble before God. I saw that in myself. Maybe someone read the message, before I edited it, but I did not include repenting. And I have to be honest. When I saw that, I rewrote it.
Well, because I live with myself, and I so dedicate my writings to being honest, and even here, I have to forgive myself. As I forgive others. But I repent first. Because my actions do not mean anything unless I take it all to the throne of God.
Sometimes, you see people, and you think in a lot of things….. They should know better. They should not do what they do. Like in the matters of loving, being kind, compassionate, supportive, etc. Or just knowing truth, from His holy word. This is fruit from Christ. But where is it?
But look what they did to Christ. And even though, they crucified Him. He forgave. Because He understands. He gave His life. Knowing this…
We know not what to do without Him, and that is the truth of the matter.
Lesson to be learned, you cannot do it on your own. It requires Gods help. Or you will make the same mistakes over, and over again. Only He can truly change a heart. To know.
So yes forgive….But let me remind you, a time of forgiving will run out.
Someday the mercy and grace of God will stop. It will be a time for judgement. It will be a time to open the books in heaven. So if we know that, yes forgive, but for the sake of all of our souls. Let us obey God now! Because some day, it will be too late to forgive.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
Did you know that whisper, you hear, is the Holy Spirit, telling you to repent, when you have a guilty conscience?
Did you know there is a danger, a spiritual danger, when you have not made Christ your Lord, and savior, and you listen to your own understanding, and you do not trust or incline unto God to guide you, in that sense of conscience?
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. PROVERBS 3:5. KING JAMES
Atheists don’t recognize it, even some Christians don’t recognize that whisper, people who are rebellious will not see it, or hear it, but if you know whose voice it is, you will consider it, and consider it as truth.
You need to repent. We all do. And I even recommend daily. Because daily, we can miss His voice, if we are not in tune to God.
You see, God instilled that voice in all of us. He each gave us a conscience. But what you do with that conscience, will either be your growth to fruit, or it will become your destruction.
And no doubt about it, you do have to make a choice. You see, God will speak to you, He wants to woo you. He wants you to know Him. He wants to love you, and have fellowship with you. He wants to be your friend. He wants to heal you. He wants to ensure you have a place with Him when you die, and leave this earth. But the choice is up to you.
That guilty conscience, is telling you, over and over again. My son, my daughter, you did wrong. You are not thinking clearly. But let me cleanse you. Let me take that sin. Let me, help you grow. Let me, give you my mind, so you can have a sense of direction. Let me give you peace. Let me comfort you. Let your mind be at ease with me. This is why I give you my King James Bible, to give you instruction.
But He God, our Lord, is a gentleman. He never, ever pushes Himself on us. But if we do not listen, that voice will depart. The Holy spirit will leave. Because God though He loves us, will not be in the midst of our sins, or our disobedience. He is Holy.
But I have to warn you, be aware to know whose voice it is. You have to know the difference between conviction and condemnation. The voice of Christ will convict you. To warn you, to guide you, to love you. But He will not condemn you.
Condemnation comes from the enemy. It will tell you there is no hope. It will tell you give up! Don’t listen to that voice, don’t fall for the defeat that their is no hope. There always is with God.
You know, God has spoken to me so many times. And I have learned to hear His voice. And I am able to distinguish between His voice, and the enemies. He says, we will know His voice, and to another we will not follow.
TO HIM THE PORTER OPENETH; AND THE SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE; AND HE CALLETH HIS OWN SHEEP BY NAME, AND LEADETH THEM OUT. 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 10:3-5. King James.
I recommend reading all of chapter ten of John from a King James just to get a sense of His voice.
Gods voice is patient. Gods voice is love. But Gods voice, has standards, that need to be acknowledged, in fear of Him. Because the consequences, is sin, and death.
And this is the enemies voice, it is prideful, it is lying, and it is mean spirited. It is in denial. And yes rebellion. Because the enemy, does not want you to meet your potential in Christ. It wants you to self-destruct.
Some think they are going crazy, literally, but if you heed my Fathers instruction, you will see the difference.
For with Christ it is love, and life eternally. And how much sweeter it is, even here on earth, knowing His voice, guides me. It protects me.
It warns me, at a moments notice. I may get that gut feeling, and I know, that I know that I know, when I am wrong. I know instruction. I know when I obey, it goes well. If I do not listen to that whisper, I miss it. When I am wrong when I do not obey. I see the future, for we will reap what we sow, without repentance.
I know when I insist on my own way. Or when I am only thinking about me, and not someone else. When I do not listen. And I have to repent. He tells me when I am wrong. It just does not sit well with my spirit, when I am “guilty.”
So many times, when truth is presented, if we are not in a good position, with God, we will not hear that voice. In fact, the more you rebel against that sweet sound of truth, the further, and further you will get from God. It will be like an echo, that will fade, like in a tunnel.
It will make you cold, it will make you indifferent, it will steal your sense, of right and wrong, and you will become like an animal. An animal that is possessed, by a devil, that will “instruct” you to do that which is wrong, with no sense, to know, you are hurting yourself, and maybe others. It will blind you, and you won’t even know. It will deceive you.
See, God is a spirit, and when we worship God, we have to worship Him, in spirit and in truth, so we always have to be aware of the whisper, we listen to in our conscience. (see John 4:24, King James only)
For it will either be good or evil. Have you ever seen a commercial, where there is an angel on one shoulder or a devil on the other? The goal, is to defeat that devil and allow God to take the place of that devil. And even here, I will say know whose voice you listen to. Because there are many counterfeits, and false voices. Not all angels are good angels….
If you do not know Gods voice, you will get cold. You will be deceived. Your heart, will become indifferent, stony, and even deaf.
Dear friend, do not let that voice, that sense of being cold, control you. Do not let it cause you to self-destruct. Or to hurt someone else.
When I was growing up, when I did things that were wrong. I saw how they “controlled” me. Like smoking, it made me smoke, I craved it. Yet I saw, how it hurt me. I became weak, physically, lazy, and well we all know smoking is bad. But when you are caught up in any sin, it will control you.
I hated that, in fact, I still hate anything that is not of God, because it is sin. I don’t want anything to control me. But God. So, I am glad I listened to that small voice, and obeyed God, I asked God, take this desire away from me. And He did. He did it for my mom, and she told me how to ask God, and to obey. I did.
But He took it further, and got me to see the root of all my sins. For you see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; Romans 3:23 King James.
So if you think you are o.k. you don’t need God, think again. Maybe your conscience is so full of “pride” another characteristic of the devil, that you think, you are fine, without God, think again. Because we will all bow before God. We will all confess Jesus as Lord, when we stand before Him. Don’t let even that pride, confuse you. Because you will reap what you sow, even now, on earth. But after life, there is hell, and you do not want that for your future.
You see, right now, even as I am prompted to write. I know God wants you to hear Him. I have learned to obey God. I have learned to run to that sweet voice, to receive counsel. By going to my King James Bible, and to my Lord in prayer. Because it is truth. Even writing this, is by sweet counsel of the Holy spirit, because God wants to reach you.
Friend, I just have a strong sense, that if you deny this, that what I have wrote already, that you are rebellious, and even when friends, or family tell you the truth, you always have to feel like you have to challenge it, you have to fight the truth, because you think they may be judging you. You reject it.
I see it myself with others, who do not see the truth, but think it is judgment. We are called to warn one another. So I warn you, be careful with that voice you hear. Be careful, with what sense of right and wrong you use to navigate your way in life. A good moral conscience, can only be clear, when Jesus, is that sense of right and wrong.
Please, listen to God, go to Him, don’t be ashamed, to listen to your whisper of a conscience. It is God calling you. Go to His throne. Kneel before Him, tell Him you are sorry. Perhaps tell someone else you are sorry, cleanse that pride, let Christ embrace you.
Did you know apologizing, to someone, will bless you? Because you are then letting God speak to you. He tells us to forgive, but we have to sometimes ask for it.
Let Him record, your repentance and humbleness before Him, so His voice will be stronger. Get a good King James bible, and daily seek Him. Friend, the whisper, will never leave when it is Christ. You will always know His voice, to have the mind of Christ.
Much love, and blessings, Elena Ramirez
Feel free to write me, to invite me to your church or ladies function.
P.O. Box 1033
Wheatridge, CO 80034
I write this, from a prompting of God. Advice. How I pray you see my heart in this. To please God. To help you grow. And obedient, to God, I want to share some of the things that have helped me, that have given me discernment. To know the difference between good and evil. But I always seek the good from God. For His mercy has been so good to me. That, mercy has inspired me, and taught me the ways of God. And this is the principal thing to do, is to seek His wisdom. As the great Proverbs instruct us.
WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING: THEREFORE GET WISDOM AND WITH ALL THY GETTING GET UNDERSTANDING. PROVERBS 4:7
For there are things we may do, and we do not understand always. And we could sin. The thing is never to give the enemy a legal right to attack us.
So we stay close to Jesus. We repent even daily, being humble. Take care dear hearts. Let us seek God. Let us seek His Holy word. That is holy from the King James Bible. That is not corrupted. So with instruction, please consider this to grow:
1. Get a good King James Bible. Read it daily. But I do recommend a good daily Bible plan. I read mine from my Bible app. (Holy Bible app. It is a brown logo, and has lots of capabilities.)
Even if it is just one verse. Start your day with Gods Holy word. No ifs’s, buts or compromise in this. Honor God in this!
I have written many posts on this, and to just get the point, any other bible version is compromised, is no longer holy, or anointed. The many scriptures attest to this, do not change Gods holy word. So don’t use anything that has been changed. So get a King James Bible, that has been established for over 400 years.
2. Begin writing scriptures, King James Scriptures sharing them on social media, and for reference. You want to grow. This imparts truth to the spirit not only for you, but for someone else. You might be the only Bible someone sees, so you want to inspire someone to know Gods truth as well. You can reach someone that perhaps, I cannot, or is family, friends, etc. This is not judging them, this is seeing their fruit, and knowing they need God. And you could be just that person God is calling to use. Gods word is a double edged “sword” You do not want a rubber sword, so this is very IMPORTANT! Write it, journal it, share it…Memorize it.
We are to get the holy word of God. And scripture references it as “sincere” milk.
AS NEWBORN BABES, DESIRE THE SINCERE MILK OF THE WORD, THAT YE MAY GROW THEREBY. I PETER 2:2.
You want to start pouring the word of God into your spirit, as milk, so you can grow. Perhaps you are a baby Christian. Or just still trying to grow. But you need to always have the goal of growing. And the Holy word of God, is the only way to do that with prayer.
So you can start having discernment. So you can receive understanding, to gain wisdom. This is the only true way. Then when able from growth it turns into “Meat.” So you can bear it. Let these scriptures minister to you.
AND I BRETHREN, COULD NOT SPEAK UNTO YOU AS UNTO SPIRITUAL, BUT AS UNTO CARNAL, EVEN AS UNTO BABES IN CHRIST. I HAVE FED YOU WITH MILK,AND NOT WITH MEAT: FOR HITHERTO YE WERE NOT ABLE TO BEAR IT, NEITHER YET NOW ARE YE ABLE. I Corinthians 3:2-3.
I have been writing scriptures for years, in all my writings to build a foundation for a thought, and now whenever I need a word, I may not always remember the scripture. But I remember the “Key” word, of Gods holy word. And with technology as it is, there is no excuse to copy and paste word, to hear it, to search it. So I do recommend getting a good Bible app. And applying it to your computer, or Ipad, etc.
Then share scripture. Do it daily. Don’t get lazy in this. You want to grow. To not do this is actually a disservice to yourself. You will get spiritually weak without Gods Holy word. It is a hedge of protection. But to God dear friends this is what He has given us. This is not a lecture. But, if we love, God we do every thing we can to understand Him.
We need this, even to defend ourselves. For we do not fight against flesh and blood, but spiritualities, in high places.
FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULES OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES. EPHESIANS 6:12
For in this world, there is darkness. We need to bring light. We need to be able to discern. We need to be able to understand Gods ways. No, we cannot understand everything about God, and we never will.
But we try to please Him, in this life He has given us. And we are held accountable. We are warned. This is not judging anyone. This is warning with love, to know, according to scripture we will stand before God.
AND I SAW THE DEAD, SMALL AND GREAT, STAND BEFORE GOD: AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED: AND ANOTHER BOOK WAS OPENED, WHICH IS THE BOOK OF LIFE: AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED OUT OF THOSE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS. Revelation 20:12.
3. So fear God. This is the most healthiest thing to protect your soul. And this with great reverence, and yes of fear of God, I plead with you. To grow. To remember that fear of God. We need to change. We need to grow. We cannot stay in that place of being passive, and naive. For we will be judged. But we must be careful. We must seek God, and this works.
I can write on more and more about this. But there is not enough space on this page, but you must seek wisdom, and God, and this will do it. With prayer, with a heart to hear from God.
4. Be careful of Pride. Be careful of being self righteous. That righteousness only belongs by what Christ did. For you and me. Be Humble, with one another, know again, there are some things we are not anointed to do, or accomplish. Be careful of people who do not display this.
5. Test the spirits, to see if they are love, of Christ. And again, be careful who you listen to. If the bible they use is not holy King James Based. That anointing can be poured down, and you don’t want to receive corrupted word in your spirit.
6. Do not compromise your walk with Christ. For money, for pleasures, for sin. Be ever so careful. The more we grow in Christ, we get stronger. And this is the goal. You have authority over your body, and you are called to mortify sin in your body, by Christ. So it will not have dominion over you. Remember, those that go after the flesh, will not be Christs. Read Romans 8 from the King James. He will deliver you from temptation if you submit to Him. Plead the blood of Jesus, in everything. I know…..
7. Put on the armor of God. I think we may forget about this. But being submissive to God. Resisting the enemy, with the armor, can do so much for us. Read Ephesians 6. From the King James. You want victories. So watch the words you speak as well.
You have power of life and death in your tongue. Proverbs 18:21. Be strong in the Lord. You are not weak, if you daily take your spiritual food, from God. This is why I go on and on, about it being King James word, its not junk food. It brings light and life, and all blessings.
And as I close, seek the Kingdom of God, and all things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33. Know that Christ is the way the truth, and life. Read John 14:6. And only Him. Warn others that this is so important. Know it in your own heart. Be careful of religion, and the doctrine that is shared from religion. BE CAREFUL NOT TO HAVE IDOLS! GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD! Be careful not to play with other spiritual entities as well! This also gets God very jealous. And there is wrath and curses in these things. BE CAREFUL!
Let us love one another. Let us try with all our being to please God. Let us remember the sacrifice of Christ with great reverence, to quicken our spirits. So we do not sin, so we do not offend. So we do not lose our blessings. And yes to even restore our hearts, and blessings. Being near Jesus, and knowing Him, and His love, is always the great protector. He is the great Shepherd.
But we cannot be disobedient in not wanting to grow. It is a disservice to God. For His love is so great. These are just things I have learned, my friend, as advice to help you grow as a Christian, but I will always direct you to Gods Holy word, the King James Bible.
For God is love. And there is no greater love. Hope this helps. Much love, praying for you to grow! For I love you, greatly. Why? Because Jesus loves you.
