WHEN THE DEVIL WANTS TO JUDGE YOU ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4041.jpeg

When the devil wants to judge you, you need to know who you are in Christ.IMG_4765.jpeg

You need to know, if you have taken your sins to the cross.  Do you plead the blood of Jesus over your sins?  If you have, taken those sins to the cross, no one, and I mean no one, has the right to bring them up again.

You need to know, to not have the appearance of evil yourself.  Or you will be judged. You need to know what your own motives are.  What kind of signals are you giving?  Are they mixed signals?  Are you speaking good and evil at the same time?  Bitter and sweet? Your pipes may need to be cleaned.  But maybe you won’t see it till you get judged…. Just a thought.

ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL.  I THESSALONIANS 5:22  King James.

DOTH A FOUNTAIN SEND FORTH AT THE SAME PLACE SWEET WATER AND BITTER?  JAMES 3:11 King James. 

What are you doing?  What are you telling folks, by your words?  That may yes, contradict who you are in Christ.  Don’t forget Christ hears everything you say, and what you think.

What are you doing in private?  Can you be trusted when alone?  God sees everything.   You may try to fool others, but you can never fool God.

If you are repeating sins, then you have not fully repented.  So that makes that null and void.  So don’t give the devil an open door to judge you.  A legal right.

IMG_4764.jpegYou should not be playing with your salvation, you should not abuse grace.  You should be in fear of God.  Because He does offer grace, but after a time, correction from God can be harsh.

But let’s talk about when the devil wants to judge you.  This can happen in a few situations.  But first of all, have you confided to someone, things, that they can use against you to judge you?

Don’t give the devil ammunition, to attack you.  Be careful.  Not everybody is a friend, and I have seen friends, use things against them.

I personally, would hope not to do that.  To a friend.  Even exfriends.  That I can frenemies.  For some friends have revealed some things to me.  But I learned the hard way, myself, don’t do that.  So I try not to do that.  To anyone.  Even if they have hurt me.

For, years ago, in my being naive, and very trusting.  (Which I am no longer that.)

I remember confiding to a friend, at work, and she was a Christian friend, so I thought I could trust her.   Wrong. She threw it back at me, when she felt convenient.  She made me feel so bad, because I did trust her.  But worse she told others, it made me feel ashamed.  And stupid for trusting her.

But it taught me, that in life, folks, are not often to be trusted.  And the worse kind, is when a Christian brother or sister throws something at you.  I know we all have this tendency to judge.  But be careful with that.  I myself have to recognize, the devil could use me in a matter, and I never want to be used by the enemy, by judging someone.

Gossip is being used by the devil to judge others.  Don’t wound people.  Don’t hurt them.  Don’t damage someones reputation, just to do it.

God tells us that love covers a multitude of sins.

AND ABOVE ALL THINGS HAVE FERVENT CHAIRITY AMONG YOURSELVES:  FOR CHAIRITY SHALL COVER THE MULTITUDE OF SINS.  I PETER 4:8  King James.  

But look at this scripture as well, and it talks about warning.

LET HIM KNOW, THAT HE WHICH CONVERTETH THE SINNER FROM THE ERROR OF HIS WAY SHALL SAVE A SOUL FROM DEATH AND SHALL HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS.  James 5:20  King James.

See the devil does not want you to save a soul from death.  He wants to judge you.  He wants to use you to judge others.  But please be ever so careful.  I think thats just one thing I have learned from folks, is they may either love you or hate you, but they do not use discretion in matters like this, that could be considered wisdom.IMG_4673.jpeg

You and I both have to see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  We should judge, but judge righteously.  But when someone starts hitting someone on the head with the bible, or starts even promoting something that is wrong.

Well, my antenna goes up.  I get that red alert.  I look at the motive.  Even in conversations.  Some folks are so sneaky, and sometimes, their motive is to be right.  To puff themselves up.  It’s that pride.  They don’t want to be corrected, or warned.  The scriptures tells us to warn. But it is true many in the body of Christ thinks this is judging. Read Ezekiel 33, if you want to learn more about warning.

So you have to be really careful of this.  I see a lot of judging from the devil.  Because they may hate your point on a matter.  Anything of God, really just annoys the devil.  So they will engage in trying to judge you, or making you feel bad for who you are in Christ.  Hey they have not walked in my shoes, so I tell the devil shut up.  You don’t know what God has done for me, stop judging me.  I love God.

But then I look at their fruit.  I look at their own walk, and I think to myself, you really have no room to be judging someone else, when you live like hell.  What kind of fruit is that?  They forget the final judging is from God, and I know God does not take lightly someone who tries to throw him off His throne, because they think they can judge.  Bad move.

Yesterday, someone on social media, was knocking the President, again, this time calling him a rapist.  This person, is known for supporting abortion.  And it just ticked me off, because yes, we all do sin, and come short of the glory of God, but I said; Devil look at your own sins.  And see, where you go wrong first!  Like the scripture says, if you got a big piece of wood hanging out of your own eyes, you are not seeing too clearly.  It looks very hypocritical.

THOU HYPOCRITE, FIRST CAST OUT THE BEAM OUT OF THINE OWN EYE; AND THEN SHALT THOU SEE CLEARLY TO CAST OUT THE MOTE OUT OF THY BROTHERS EYE.  MATTHEW &;5  KJV.

Ouch.  We can be hypocritical and I always want to be careful with that.  I know, again my own sins, have placed our Lord on the cross.  But it did bother me, so I defended our President.

But, the devil will do that, he will try to intimidate, and judge, and put you down, yet the fruit of that person, is not righteous.  So thats why it looks like the devil is judging you.

Sometimes you have to remind the devil where he is headed.  Thats hell.  And the accuser has a special place in hell.  Read Revelation 12:10  King James.

Yes, bring God into a situation.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

IN ALL THY WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS.  PROVERBS 3:6.  KJV.  

But remember, no weapon formed against you will prosper, if you are right with God.  He will make a way.  You are the apple of His eye.  Folks, don’t get that, about God, but He can be fierce, when it comes to protecting His people.

have been wounded, by folks in the body of Christ, those were the hardest wounds to heal.  I have been thrown out of churches.  I have met Pharisee spirits, that did not walk in love, but have had very judgmental spirits.  In the name of the Lord.  But I have also seen some who hurt me, get hurt back in return.  I do not for the record, rejoice in that. 

REJOICE NOT WHEN THINE ENEMY FALLETH, AND LET NOT THINE HEART BE GLAD WHEN HE STUMBELETH.  PROVERBS 24:17  KJV. 

He says, that every tongue that rises against you, you will condemn.

NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME, SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 54:17  KJV.

I have seen God give me words, when the devil tries to judge me, that I am amazed at, but I don’t let them get away with it.  I put the devil in his place.  I remind him, where he is going.  Especially, when he wants to judge me.  And I know the devil is a liar.  I know he only comes to kill, steal, and destroy, and if he can destroy your confidence, he will.  But don’t let him.  Confidence is a gift from God.  I have that confidence, because Christ gives me life abundantly.

But remember…

IMG_4761.jpegEven if it is in a friend, who the devil is using.  Put on your armor of God.  The devil will even use someone you trust and love.  To judge you.  To hurt you.  See we have an authority, a boldness, a courage, that only God can give.  And believe me, I have seen enough of my own battles, to know that there are times, it could only be God. But I praise God for that.

This again, is why I repent daily.  I remember some of my sins.  I know they are covered by the blood of Jesus.  I pray, they are in the sea of forgetfulness.  But I just know, in life, you will meet these kinds of people, who the enemy will use, to try and judge you.  To hurt you.  To shame you.

If you are convicted and you have repented, you should not feel condemned.  The only way you will feel condemned, is you have not repented.  The devil will judge you.  Don’t let him.  Make it right with God.  Now do you understand why I love repentance daily?

Because He lifts the humble and turns from the proud…. Another matter for just my thoughts.

But if you really want to defeat the enemy.  Pull out the King James word.  And you know I only recommend this word because it is Holy. It has power.

Use it, tell that devil he is a liar.  Ironic, I just got judged by someone who wanted to argue about the word of God, and instead of arguing, I know what God says, and I pull it out, write it, share it, and shut the devil up.  As I wear my armor of God, I pull out my sword.  This is my sword of truth! and it is sharp, and cuts deep.  When anyone challenges it, they challenge God, and He is not mocked.  The battle is His.

Don’t ever forget that.  Galatians 6:7 King James.  Look it up from a King James.

 

Blessings,

WHEN TRUST IS GONE YOU DECIDE TO WALK ALONE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2903.jpegWhen trust is gone, it is hard to gain back.  And sometimes you decide to walk alone.  I admit, I am a wounded soul.  In some ways.  Yet, I am the strongest I can be in Christ, and I have peace, and hope.  Right now. Which in some ways to me, in the natural it makes no sense.  But in the spiritual, it does.

And I pray to God not to wound anybody in return.  But I think I have.  In fact I know I have.  Because I am not open for communication.  Any more. I have gone silent. Because I won’t give in, and open myself to be hurt again, by those who think I am fair game.

IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN.  PSALMS 118:8  KJV. 

And for that, I am so very sorry.  Especially if you have had a change of heart about me, and see I was true.  But it is too late now.  The damage is done.

I truly love and wish those that I have severed relationships with. The very best.  To  live happily ever.  But I just cannot pretend, I have not been wounded.  So, I am also alienating myself, from others.

For, to be honest, my trust level in folks right now is gone.  People, may say things to me, now, and I cannot just shake it off.  I used to, I gave them the benefit of the doubt.  Extended grace.

THE LORD REDEEMETH THE SOUL OF HIS SERVANTS:  AND NONE OF THEM THAT TRUST IN HIM SHALL BE DESOLATE.  PSALMS 34:22 KJV. 

But sometimes, when things happen lately.  I don’t react.  Right away.  But a seed gets planted, and then it grows, and I realize that some folks just don’t see the error of their ways either.  Its like you write someone a letter, and they throw it away.  Or they gave you the silent treatment….

But you gave grace.  And you wonder, if you cannot communicate, what kind of friendship is that? But you realize that, after giving grace.  You realize that, after a time of reflection.  The seed grew.

It sometimes turns into a bad seed.  And they put it on another person…I don’t want to do that, because I understand hurt people, hurt others, and for that I think its best to walk alone.

So, I find myself wanting to just let go, and walk alone, with Christ, and my immediate family.IMG_4255

I wish I did not have this kind of a testimony, to be writing about.  I wish I had fruitful friendships, trusting friendships.  The kind, that would be strong.  Right now. I wish, that my relationships with people, have not come to this place, where I cannot trust.  But it is what it is.  I don’t frankly understand it.  But I accept it.

I wish no one any hurt or pain, by my decision to walk alone.  But, if I seem to bring out the worse in others, I would never want to make them unhappy by who I just am.  I saw that happen with some folks.  I seemed to bring out the worse in them, instead of the best.  It made me sad…

And some apologies have come through, by some, yet, I just don’t seem to bounce back.  To open myself to trust.  I have forgiven all.  So nothing can be said, to change my mind.  For the trust is gone.  And I am not looking to find it any more.  Its hidden in a place, where only God can touch it.

 

DSC_0027.jpgI have never been one to try and flaunt, or brag about anything about me, because if I am blessed in some things, there are things, I have suffered greatly for so, so I don’t understand when someone thinks, I don’t grieve about some things.  I am always happy to be on the sidelines, I don’t need the glory.  I want God to have it. 

FOR THOU ART MY HOPE, O LORD GOD:  THOU ART MY TRUST FROM MY YOUTH.  PSALMS 71:5  KJV. 

So, when they get jealous enough to compare.  I don’t understand that. I just know Christ helps me.  Anything, I have, everything I have, is due to God, blessing me, and I thank Him.

When someone tells me that they don’t respect me.  I believe them.  When someone tells me they are jealous of me, I believe them.  

And I just rebuke that in the name of Jesus.  Why?  Because I only had the best heart for these individuals, and this is the end result from them.  It is not from God. And they know it!  But that’s between them and God now, and the battle is His, I am letting go. 

O MY GOD, I TRUST IN THEE: LET ME NOT BE ASHAMED, LET NOT MINE ENEMIES TRIUMPH OVER ME.  PSALMS 25:2  KJV.

I do forgive, because I don’t want poison in my soul….

IMG_3449.jpeg

But see, it is that trust that is gone.  That scares me.  Gives me a red alert.  I did not realize how much I could take by some people, I called friends, who I really loved dearly, but I cannot take any more.  So I choose now to walk alone…

Trust is such a precious attribute.  Be careful with it.  Don’t abuse it.

COMMIT THY WAY UNTO THE LORD: TRUST ALSO IN HIM; AND HE SHALL BRING IT TO PASS.  PSALMS 37:5  KJV

My circle, is small now.  My guard is up, my armor of God is on securely, and my trust is gone.

YE THAT FEAR THE LORD, TRUST IN THE LORD:  HE IS THEIR HELP AND THEIR SHIELD.  PSALMS 115:11.  KJV.  

I don’t know if I want to trust anyone ever again.  But God.  And don’t get me wrong, I am not having a pity party, about it.  I am actually feeling just a sense of relief.  I don’t understand it, but I am.  I feel like a weight has been lifted off.

Like my eyes are completely opened, spiritually, if that makes sense, and I am actually grateful, I have the strength to walk away.  You know like after a long storm, and the sunshine comes out, and you just can see things more clearly.  And you just thank God.  Because you never want to be tossed to and fro, by anyone.

Because you see things…..  Things that you may look at and see, but after a while, you realize it is not healthy.  For them, or you.

Knowing God, trusting God, has given me discernment.

There is something so comforting in just relying on God.  It activates my faith.  So though, my trust level in others is gone.  It is intense, with God.  I have faith.  And trust in my Lord.

BLESSED IS THAT MAN THAT MAKETH THE LORD HIS TRUST, AND RESPECTETH NOT THE PROUD, NOR SUCH AS TURN ASIDE TO LIES.  PSALMS 40:4  KJV.  

I want to be careful to change the tone here in my writings, the subject matter.  I am closing these doors.  And I think I have spent too much time thinking about them, writing about them, and grieving.  Time for the joy of the Lord to be my strength.

I WILL SAY OF THE LORD, HE IS MY REFUGE AND MY FORTRESS: MY GOD; IN HIM WILL I TRUST.  PSALMS 91:2 KJV. 

Have a blessed Fathers day, everybody.

HEAL+THY+SELF IN CHRIST =  JESUS GIVES ME HEALTHY SELF.

ISAIAH 53:5, I claim that for you too….

BUILDING WALLS DESTROYING BRIDGES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0046.jpeg

AND THEY THAT SHALL BE OF THEE SHALL BUILD THE OLD WASTE PLACES:  THOU SHALT RAISE UP THE FOUNDATIONS OF MANY GENERATIONS; AND THOU SHALT BE CALLED, THE REPAIRER OF THE BREACH, THE RESTORER OF PATHS TO DWELL IN.  

ISAIAH 58:12 KING JAMES.

I suppose, building a wall and destroying a bridge as a metaphor, is something, we all do by instinct.  Though, I would never, ever suggest, that literally.  

I am just thinking today, though, how we all either build a wall, or destroy a bridge to protect ourselves.

I suppose you do that if you have been hurt by others.  And sometimes we build a wall, or destroy a bridge, even with those that have not hurt us, but because we have been hurt, its like an instinct, to do either.

I never really thought of it, but I suppose I do it too.  And I always like to express to others, why I do what I do sometimes, because communication always clears the air.

But when folks, build a wall up, or destroy a bridge with me, I feel helpless.

I cannot scream at them, or whisper, or even call them up, or write a letter.

(For,I have written many letters that some are read by some, and some I just keep to myself, because it is my outlet, to soothe my soul.)

But I cannot tell them this, because they have closed the case, or built the wall, destroyed my letters, and so I see them destroying the bridge.  If that makes sense.IMG_0577

I have been seeing this a lot in my life, symbolically, where I am thinking, I could have courage, to try and communicate, by climbing the wall, or trying to repair the bridge, but I am weary.  Too many bridges have been burned in my life.  Too many walls have gone up.  

And when they won’t let me communicate, or they will not make the attempt to communicate as well, I don’t know what else to do, but just leave them be.  As much as I love them.  

I admit it.  I don’t have the bounce, I used to.  Life is so unpredictable.  Sometimes, we just cannot see where the bridges are, because we allow the walls ourselves.

I know God knows, where the walls are, and I know that He allows some walls.  As for repairing the bridges, there are some bridges, that should not be repaired. And I ponder on this too.  

But when you are going through it, sometimes, you cannot see that.  You want to build a bridge, or knock down the wall, but you just cannot.  Something holds you back.  I have held back.  I know it, I see it.

Silence, has not always been golden but it is now my wall, that I hide behind, and my own bridge. That I have learned to use. For myself.  And if folks cannot respect that, then they really are not meant to be in your life. 

Sometimes….You just cannot comprehend, or understand why there are walls, and why bridges have been destroyed.

What I have learned, is to keep walking.  Or crawling, but I will not give up.  As much as it hurts.  As much as you have to cry.  Or clean up your own wounds, from battles.  Christ is there.  Cleaning up the wounds.  Putting salve on your heart, and hurts.  I know He does this for me often. We all have our own griefs.  I know I have had mine.  And I will not compare my griefs to anyone! I refuse to do that. It is not healthy spiritually, or physically, mentally, etc.  

But I am not letting go!  Of Gods hand. Keep walking, keep going on.  Don’t look back.  Keep walking with Christ.  Let Him guide you.  Run that race.  Never give up.  This is what I know.  Just don’t give up.  Like the scripture says, run the race.  This is what I intend to do.  

HEBREWS 12:1  KING JAMES  

WHEREFORE SEEING WE ALSO ARE COMPASSED ABOUT WITH SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES, LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT, AND THE SIN, WHICH DOTH SO EASILY BESET US, AND LET US RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US.  

There is light, there is hope.  There is another chance.  Even if walls have gone up, or you yourself have destroyed bridges.   Get out of the darkness.  Get into His light.  His holy King James truth.

And again don’t use anything else but that!  It is holy word, not corrupted.  Folks, you want Gods voice in a matter, not a voice that is disobedient to God because the words were changed.   But many folks do not see that…

Anyway…

Don’t look at death, but look at life, and how Christ represents life.  How He promises to give life, and life abundantly!  

THE THIEF COMETH NOT BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY:  I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  JOHN 10:10  KJV.  

This scripture says so much, but look at it carefully.  It says they “might” have life.  But that’s up to you.  Because He will do His part, if you do yours. 

It is a choice.  Always a choice.  

AND IF IT SEEM EVIL UNTO YOU TO SERVE THE LORD, CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE; WHETHER THE GODS WHICH YOUR FATHERS SERVED THAT WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FLOOD, OR THE GODS OF THE AMORITES, IN WHOSE LAND YE DWELL; BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.  JOSHUA 24:15.  KJV.IMG_1574  

I choose hope, life, and love.  Always! Because these things come from my Lord. 

Watch your words, oh my watch your words.  

DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE:  AND THEY THAT LOVE IT SHALL EAT THE FRUIT THEREOF.  PROVERBS 18:21  KING JAMES.

If some folks only knew what they say, or share in just words.  If only they could see, that they are allowing some things spiritually, because they just cannot see the power of their words.  Stop saying you are dumb. Stop being in denial.  Get some backbone, when it comes to being accountable.  Admit your faults, because truth is we all have them. Stop saying you are weak.  Start saying you are strong.  

BEAT YOUR PLOWSHARES INTO SWORDS, AND YOUR PRUNINGHOOKS INTO SPEARS;  LET THE WEAK SAY, I AM STRONG.  JOEL 3:10  KJV. 

Stop looking at darkness.  Death. And think about it, if you have survived the battle, you are strong.  Stronger then you know!

When you are on a train, and it goes through a tunnel, you don’t jump out of the train.  You stay on and in the train till it gets to its destination.  Hold on!  And open your eyes, there is a lot to look for.  As you come out of that tunnel. To Believe in.

IMG_0418

Keep walking.  If God means for bridges to be rebuilt, and for walls to come down with some people.  He will show you.  He will help those folks, to get stronger, with more courage, and love.  Keep praying for them.  For revelation.  For understanding.  They may get back in step with you, but until then….

Keep loving them even in your memories, but keep walking…..

Do not stop and have a pity party!  Theres no time for that any more, I feel that for myself any way….So much time has been wasted. 

I believe that is a word for me, even now.  That I claim.  I am praising God, as I walk through the doors.  

I KNOW THY WORKS:  BEHOLD I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT:  FOR THOU HAST A LITTLE STRENGTH, AND HAST KEPT MY WORD, AND HAST NOT DENIED MY NAME.  REVELATION 3:8.   

The door may look closed to folks, to those who have not supported me in my ministry.  To those who have just mocked me, stood on the sidelines, because I share my testimonies, and they can’t even share a post of mine. To encourage someone, but I know it is opened, I just have to walk in it.  By the way, I forgive them.  They know not what they do.  Christ said that, and I remember that too.  

IMG_2200

Because the walls He has built, are eternal, and the bridges He has established, comes from the cross.  Of our dear Lord Jesus.  And I can only hide behind those walls, with Him, and walk that cross, as the bridge, careful not to destroy my walk with Him.  

This bridge can never be destroyed.   I Praise you Lord, thank you for my salvation.  I am not ashamed of who Christ is in my life.  And I will with all my heart, try to obey.  I know my own faults, but you have held me.  Thank you Father God, glory and honor to your name.  My Lord Jesus.  Amen.

Hope this blesses you, in Christ, Happy Mothers Day.  To all mothers.

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,

WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO HAS A JEZEBEL AND JUDAS SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4237 2.jpgIf you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you.  And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.

The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship.  Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.

Let me try and explain what this is first.  So you can understand.  

A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal.  Its someone, who has a whorish spirit.  I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain.  Very self-centered.  Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others.  But behind the scenes, pits one against another.  Instigating….

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD.  I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES. 

The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim.  Never accountable.  Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft.  Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties.  Not good.

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU?  AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY?  II KINGS 9:22.  KJV.  

All of these things God abhors.  You may see all or some of these characteristics.  

The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you.  As Christ knew.  Someone, who will not be loyal to you.  Someone who will be a false witness.  Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you.  Someone who will be used by the devil.

AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM.  MARK 14:10  KJV.  

The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ.  So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.  

AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU?  AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.  MATTHEW 26:15  KJV.  

Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ.  He gave Christ the Judas kiss.  As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you.  Accept it.  

BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS?  LUKE 22;48  KJV.  

But Judas was not accountable.  He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.  

Pride…. One can see that.  Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable. 

I think you might get the drift of this.  So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.  

But yet you do.  Or you can fall victim of that.  Love can cause one to sin.  Love can make one blind.  Even in friendship.  

This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol.  And you have to be careful of this.  Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.  

Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you.  But to God.  If you only knew how jealous God is.  How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.  

Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know.  The hard way.  If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will.  And God knows that.  

God is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy?  Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ.  When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.”  See KJV Proverbs 17:17

And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.

THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS.  EXODUS 23:32 KJV.  

Social media is very revealing, about folks.  And their friends….

If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan?  Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them.  Because you like that?  Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves.  Yet God hates it.  No thank you….I would pass on that quickly.  And I have….

NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS.  AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION;  AND SHE REPENTED NOT.  REVELATION 2:20-21  KJV.  

Anyway….  Its easy for me to forgive someone.  To extend grace.  But when that grace is not extended in return.  It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ.  Because Christ is love.  And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.  

All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit.  This can destroy friendships.  And thats besides the point.  Know more then anything that gets God very angry.  His wrath will be revealed.  

So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties.   I am older now, but wiser.  I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.  

But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends.  And it scares me.  To trust folks any more.  Anyway….

Sin can come in somehow.  But somethings can break chief friends.

A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE:  AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.  

PROVERBS 16:28  KJV. 

Loyalty to God must be evident with me.  This is one thing I strive to give my Lord.  And I long from friends.  So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone.  God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again.  He is my example.  Not people.  

And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot.  That I cannot just justify as o.k. 

If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God.  And depart.  Have nothing to do with people like that.  

So one can now stay away, loyal to God.  It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.  

Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit.  Pray about it.  If you see signs, this could be God showing you.  Take heed.  

And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself.  Then don’t hesitate.  Make it right with God, by repenting.  And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.

Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas.  Their endings were not good.  And one should avoid that.  Look it up.  In a King James bible.  And again, I will reiterate.  It has to be a King James for holiness.  Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.

Maybe this is how you will learn.  By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit.  I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus.  Who calls us to be holy.  

And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people.  I do wish people the best.  I have no ill feelings toward anyone.  Thats not who I am in Christ.  No matter how hurt I have been.  I pray, God bless people.  Lessons of life.  But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning.  God sees.  And I know that.  So I say all of this in friendship and love.  But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.  

ISAIAH 54:17  NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 54:17  

Holy King James word. 

In Christ,

WHEN YOUR FRIENDS WON’T BELIEVE YOU ABOUT THE KING JAMES YET YOU CALL THEM BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4060.jpgWHEN YOUR FRIENDS WON’T BELIEVE YOU ABOUT THE KING JAMES YET YOU CALL THEM BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
If I challenged almost all my friends, who do not believe in the King James, I would be in a fight daily.
 
Yet, there are days, I see the deception, and I do speak up. Some days, I just shake my head.
 
But you know what? If you know this truth, about the King James, you can tell your friends, please tell them…. Base it on Deuteronomy 4:2, that tells us don’t change it, add to it, or delete it. Proverbs 30:5-6, says we are liars if we do. And then there is the harshest warning, Revelation 22:18-19. That tell us, one could lose their right in the lambs book of life. That they will be denied access to the Holy city. Look it up in a King James…..
 
Believe God folks, this is very serious business. Some days, I just shake my head. Sad, that so many in the body of Christ has been deceived by the enemy. That is the enemies goal, to steal your crown. Cant we tell by the times we are in, that the enemy has deceived even the elect?
 
FOR THERE SHALL ARISE FALSE CHRISTS, AND FALSE PROPHETS, AND SHALL SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS; INSOMUCH, THAT, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT. MATTHEW 24:24 KING JAMES.
 
If we obeyed God first just in word, we would see victories, but the body of Christ is now, so disjointed. We just not are all on the same page with God. And that’s just sad….
 
I have just come to a place, in my own walk, where I know, this truth, that I know that I know it, but I just choose to walk in love. Even if I am rejected by a brother or a sister in Christ, and I have been. I speak it in love, in fact I just did….
 
This person, is a bright, articulate, very knowledgeable person, even about Gods word. But makes fun of those who are KJV only, in the sense that he believes you have to have proof.
 
See, I know the difference. If I had not used those corrupt versions, I probably would still be using them. But God corrected me, and I saw, with eyes wide open, the corruption, the deception, the lies, from these fake bibles.
 
You know what, maybe I am simple minded, but the proof, is when God says don’t change it. Thats all the proof I need, to depart from Bibles that are corrupted. To obey God. Its not that hard, and I don’t need proof. I just need to hear His voice.
 
And I did, and I obeyed. This has increased my faith…
 
And when I use His word, my King James, I know I am on the same page with God. Because I do hear His voice. Its called discernment.
 
Its just sad, I so want to minister to people. But if they rejected Christ, they will reject those who bring truth. Christ told us that. So I understand now.
 
But as long as He gives me utterance, I will proclaim that the King James bible is the Holy Bible, it is anointed, it is truth, is powerful, and it is His love, revealed…..
 
I HAVE NOT DEPARTED FROM THY JUDGMENTS: FOR THOU HAST TAUGHT ME. HOW SWEET ARE THY WORDS UNTO MY TASTE! YEA SWEETER THAN HONEY TO MY MOUTH. THROUGH THY PRECEPTS I GET UNDERSTANDING: THEREFORE I HATE EVERY FALSE WAY. PSALM 119:102-104. KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE.

WHEN YOU SEE A FRIEND GO TO THE DARK SIDE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3886There are signs, there are signals, one might see, if they have a friend, that goes to the dark side.

And you grieve for them, because you love them.  But you cannot do anything.  Because God gives us a choice.  Its always a choice.

But when someone, purposely has pride, will not be humble, will not forgive, will not communicate, will believe a lie, and actually fight you, to maintain all that, hate.  

Well….all you can do is walk away.  When someone, will bring up offenses, over and over again, that is not forgiving.  

See, the enemy, has deceived them.  And when any of us, purposely disobey God in matters of forgiveness, well, thats giving place to the enemy.  Thats going to the dark side.  

See, our words do matter.  When one makes a commitment, to love God, and love one another, one takes it to heart.  You don’t just say it when its convenient, or when its going good.  But through all times.  

But I was not the one who made the choice to close the case but her.  And, to depart from that, is a choice, and its a choice, that brings darkness.  God sees.  

Scripture says, a friend, loves at all times, not when its convenient.  Or when, everything is alright.  Love, does love through, the disagreements, the silence, and even, the hate.  

See, I know, I love someone, someone, I called a sister, a friend, who for so much showed friendship and loyalty, to me, but when it came down to it, she was not accountable, to her own behavior.  I still love this person, but I see, she has stepped into the darkness.  And now I just grieve for her.  

Because now she is just someone, who wants nothing to do with me, ever again.  And I respect that.  It does hurt, but I am grateful, I have my armor on, and I will quench those fiery darts from the enemy, that he uses, from my frien-enemy to throw at me.  

I am careful, always, to offer forgiveness, because I know myself, that if we are not pleasing God in this, He will not forgive us.  And the record shows I did. But she rejected it.  

I may have made mistakes, in fact, I know I did, in friendship with this person, I am thinking about.  But the grace was not there for me.  And I kept seeing it, and yet I offered grace, but she would not.  She offered me the silent treatment, closed the case, and let obscenities be spoken about me.  That is not love.

So, when you don’t see grace, that is a signal, that this person, has their blinders on.  Sad thing is, if you keep your blinders on, and do not obey God,  You can miss it.  And walk right into the enemies camp, of darkness.  And he only comes to kill, steal and destroy.  Even friendships, based on prayer, and God.  Especially those kind, and that was the kind of friendship we had, at one time.  

Sad thing is though, when you see other friends, contribute to that, and take sides, well they have gone to the dark side with that person.  I REBUKE THAT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.  I MARK THAT, AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM EITHER. 

We pray for people, but we also know, its a choice.  You want to pull them out of the fiery flames, but when people silence you, want nothing to do with you.

 You go, on, with Christ.  Christ said, as His disciples, we were to love one another.  He said, that we were to forgive.  He said, that love would show we were His disciples.  I have tried, but I am done.  

I will try and not write about this person, ever again, concerning this person.  Because this person, did not care, that she wounded me.  But this is how I heal.  And I have nothing further to say, you see, I tried. And I know it.

I have so many cards from this person, so many reminders, of a commitment, that she just forgot about.  So I may do some purging, of gifts, and reminders. 

Make sure you have done all you can in love, and forgiveness, and let the record reflect that.  Because there is one.  And God sees.  

If you can relate to my friend, I  implore you to repent to God.  I don’t expect an apology at this point, from her, but if I can warn someone, don’t go to the dark side.  

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:35  KJV.  

Blessings, and love,
