DO YOU WANT GOD TO BLESS YOU BUT YOU DO NOT BLESS GOD? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


DSC_0015I feel like I am in fifth grade, and I have been given the assignment to explain this:  

Do you want God to bless you, but you do not bless God?  

I have to explain it.  Its on my heart.  It makes me sad for God.  I actually feel the emotion, and the tears, when I think about it.  

Why me to explain it?  I don’t know…. but it does make me think, it makes me want to bless God.  

I guess, because I am older now.  I guess, because I see the error of my ways, in this lifetime of mine.  I see, the wrong turns I took.  I see the sin in my life.  I see, the lack of love, I had in my life time.  I see the lack of guidance I had.  The loneliness, the self-esteem issues I have had.  I see, I reaped what I sowed, so to speak according to scripture.  I see, the gifts and callings I had, like singing, or even my writing….. And I just see, and I have said this before, I see, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train…

But what if?  What if I had the seed planted in me, at an early age, to bless God?  Not just wanting God to bless me, and lets be totally honest, because we want God to bless us, but if I had the desire to bless Him.  Would my life been different?  I don’t know.  But I think it would have.  

If I ever get grand babies, and I pray I do, I hope I can teach them to bless God.  

But I can only concentrate on this moment.  Oh if only, I could plant the seed in you, to plant that seed in others.  So it would grow fruit, and other seeds.  Perhaps that would bless them.  But it would bless God.  

I say that, because I see the world we live in.  I see brothers and sisters in Christ, who are my brethren, but we do not all agree.  I see, so many deceived, by using the per-version, of different bibles, in the versions they choose, that are not King James Bibles.  That are perverted.  

I see the Prosperity messengers, screaming, “holler for a dollar, and name it and claim it.”  But they do not teach first and foremost the salvation message, to get people to see who God is.  To fear God.  To repent even daily, after Salvation.  To make it right with Him, to see Christ as Lord and savior, before they even dare to ask for anything from God.  

I see the lost.  I see the atheists.  I see people hating, and doing deplorable things.  I see the fruit, that is rotten.  

I see things, even in my beautiful America, that are no longer, sacred, holy, or even considered history.  There is hate, among people, races.  Authority is not respected.  Or honored.  Freedom of speech has turned into hate speech.  Life is not honored, and the innocent, babies, that are slaughtered, daily, in the name of choice.  

Yes, I see things, but I know God sees everything.  And how that must grieve Him.  It has to.  These things we see, cannot bless God!

And there is no one, calling out to bless God.  Or at least I don’t hear it.  Maybe you do.  Do you?  I hope so.  I hope, whatever church or religion, you have, has that motto to bless God.  

And I don’t like the word religion when it applies to me, because religion is, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  And I don’t have “a religion”, I believe I have a relationship with my maker.  

My maker.  My creator.  The Lord God, who is worthy of all praise, glory and honor, for who He is.  For all that He has done.  For His mercy, goodness, kindness, and love.  This being, who gave us this earth.  And gives us life.  Good food, and every perfect thing.  

Think about it.  Our lives are meant to glorify Him.  We are created in His image.  He gives us a soul.  A mind, a heart, to choose him, or not.  He is a gentleman.  He never imposes His thoughts on us.  He gives us a choice.  

Who has throughout time, been there, yes silent many times, but my King James Bible has showed me, that He has had relationships with many.  

Beginning with Adam and Eve.  They had no fear of God, or she and he would not have believed the lie from the devil.  And eaten the fruit.  I always say this, but if only they had gone to God, again…. and asked Him.  God would not have lied.  He would have reaffirmed His truth.  He would have told them, the devil is a liar.  Believe me, and only me.  But they did not ask, and they disobeyed.  

And we all somehow or another, reaped that sin, of them, and it is the same thing today.  We do what we want, and we do not ask God.  How sad.  But we can ask Him…. if our motives are right.  If we think before we ask, whats my part in this?  Will this bless God, if I go to Him in prayer first?  Before I do anything.  

No wonder God tells us He lifts the humble and turns from the proud.  

I think its sad, because I know God would want to do more for us, if we had only tried to obey Him.  Our world, would be different, if sin, had not entered in the picture.  

But its not too late, or at least, I see that for me, any way.  I can try and live my life, obedient, to Him.  Whats left of it….To give Him glory and honor.  I don’t want to leave this earth with that as a question.  Is my salvation in tact?  And how to bless God?  

To think about blessing Him, before I even think about asking Him to bless me.  I mean after all, He has done for me in my lifetime, is that too much to ask?  Bless God….

Friends, I truly hope you take this to heart.  I could write a book on it.  As I could on so many things God has placed on my heart.  But at this point in my life, I think I just need to focus on blessing Him, and in little things.  A little photo, that I share, a little inspiration, that I call “just my thoughts”...a little prayer for somebody, and just a little chat, as I come to His throne….to tell Him thank you Father.  But always acknowledging Him.  Never ashamed.  How can any of us be ashamed, when He does so much for us?  

Thankful for the miracles. That I can say look what God has done for me.   Every thing He has provided…..

You know…. 

The enemy has blinded so many of us.  Even in our silence….where people do not say anything, even with courage, to acknowledge God.  Cowardly, they do not stand for right. They have no David in them I think…. To go after the Goliath.  

And then….Again with Bibles that are not holy.  Where words are distorted, corrupted, no longer holy.  Where the majesty of God is undermined, in these phony words.  And, in stealing that praise that God so deserves.  By even denying His existence.  By changing His Holy word.  How insulting.  And even worse, you know this truth, but you do nothing.  

But let me tell you a little about the God I know.  Though He is love….He is not mocked.  And He keeps His Holy word.  That I call KJV word.  I know His ways are excellence.  I know prophetic words will come true.  Christ will return.  Christ will come for His own.  And the world, will reap what it sows.  The devil, and all his “accusers” will be sent to hell, and hell is a tormenting place.  The wrath of God will be known.  And many will regret their denial of Him.  Because He cannot be denied.  

If I could plead with you, I would tell you even in this analogy.  Repent.  Get right with God quick!  Use a King James Bible.  Throw those corrupted bibles away.  Part truth, part lie.  

Because we never know.  Throw away pride.  Get hungry and thirsty for righteousness.  Acknowledge God, in all your ways, and He will direct your paths.  Be obedient, not only for your sake, but your family, your loved ones, but more for Him.  

BLESS GOD!

That would bless God.  That would give the devil a black eye.  

Develop your relationship with Him…..  

Its so sweet to know Him.  Jesus, is the perfect example of love.  And I pray, never to take for granted what He did for me on that cross.  His suffering, pain, agony, and by His stripes we are healed.  That means spiritually and physically.  

I could never ever, repay Him for that.  I could not.  I know who I am, and I know how weak I have been.  In so many ways…. it makes me sad.  I did not bless God growing up… but I am so grateful at this moment.  

That I just want to thank Him for everything.  I just want to bless God.  I am not super Christian, I am not trying to puff myself up.  By even writing this.  

But, I will say this….You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am, or what I have gone through.  That even brings me this to write this.  How dare anybody mock someones faith?  With or with out knowing.  

But He does know, and it so humbles me, that pride that characteristic of self is evil.  Its comes from the enemy.  And it has shown me the danger, that I know that is a characteristic of the enemy.  

I want nothing to do with the enemy.  I renounce him, even as I write…..

But I love Jesus, and I thank my God the father, by the Holy spirit….

I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But I want to bless God.  I hope you do too.  

Much love, Elena Ramirez

If you have faith America, you make sure, you accept Jesus Christ as Lord, and savior.  You make sure, your salvation is in tact.  You make sure, you repent.  For tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  You have faith in Christ, because you see, He suffered for you to be saved, and no one else can do that for you.  

If you have faith America, you stand in the old ways. The ways of God, the ways of our forefathers. I stand on my King James Bible, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. And every amendment, that supports this.

If you have faith America, you walk in love, with one another. In this country, we are united.  Divided we fall.

Yes, America, we need to make some changes here, for good, not evil. We have to stand our ground. We have to see the error of our own ways, individually and as a nation. We have to seek God.

If we do not, we will not have faith. Its time to get faith….

THEN TOUCHED HE THEIR EYES, SAYING, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH BE IT UNTO YOU.

Matthew 9:29 KJV.

By Elena Ramirez

DISCLAIMER:  These are “Just my thoughts” today…..and I am grateful to God for the rights of free speech in America. That I do not take for granted, because I have faith.

I walk in faith, and those things I cannot change, I put in the hands of God almighty.  

They may not be your thoughts, but the beauty of it, is that in America, freedom is a gift, I don’t take for granted.  But I respect your right not to agree, but I don’t have to argue about it.  I don’t have to debate it.  

I have faith….

A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do….

Funny thing about life, things don’t always stay the same way. Sure you might be optimistic, one moment but the next day you don’t feel that joy, or constant level of being secure, or confident, or even sure of whats next.

But God made us to depend on Him. And without Him, it just does not work. I know it in my life.

Thats the way God made us. And sometimes, you think you learned a lesson in life, and then you go and do the same dumb thing over again. That could be sin, or it could be just that you take for granted grace, that is extended to you. And God needs to correct you.

The wonderful thing is, God has made a way through Jesus Christ. HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE. John 14:6. And sometimes, when your not sure of the path, or the lessons of life, you need THERAPY.

Therapy, that comes from Gods Holy word. The King James Bible. I love Gods holy word, just for that. No other word will do, because they are not holy.

I cannot even count the times, I have found an answer, or a sense of God speaking to me, to counsel me, or to show me, my sins, or mistakes, in His Holy word, my King James bible.

There are wonders, and secrets, that can get you back on the right track, so you can fulfill your journey. For by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5. And that includes, the mind, the soul, the spirit, the body……

You see none of us are righteous, none of us. We all need God. But it is His way. Not ours, that works.  Just ask Him…..

AS IT IS WRITTEN, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE.

ROMANS 3:10.

As I ponder on the greatest gifts from God. I thank Him first for my Salvation, for Christ, going to the cross for my sins. Then I think and thank God for my health. I think it really is the greatest gift God can give us, besides our Salvation.

But you cannot have good health, if sin is evident. Spiritually, or physically. Oh maybe you may think sin does not hurt you, but it does. It catches up with a person, sooner or later. Remember we reap what we sow.

Sin is disobedience, simply put.  Remember Adam and Eve?  That was not the plan of God, for them to listen to the devil.  I always say, they should have gone to God, when the enemy tried to deceive them.  We can go to God, when the enemy tries to deceive us.  We can avoid the curses of sin.  (prayer)

It was not Gods plan, but He did go to plan B, and that was giving us Christ, to take the penalty of our sins.  But think about what we missed, paradise, on earth, for all of us. AND THE LORD GOD TOOK THE MAN AND PUT HIM IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN TO DRESS IT AND TO KEEP IT.  GENESIS 2:15.   

But instead the curse came in, and sin is a curse.  I think when we open our eyes, and truly give our hearts to Christ, we see how much His suffering for us, is valuable, and we do not want to sin again because of His sacrifice and take it for granted.    

Sin can come from drinking, or getting high, distorting the truth, so one cannot see the deception. Smoking….causes cancer. Or it can from sexual sins, and then sexual diseases can come into place.

Sin, can be from lying, and even lying to ourselves, denying what Gods holy word says….and yes, sin, can be so much more, but it can steal your spiritual and physical health.  Sin again is disobedience.  Oh how terrible this curse is.  

The lying denies the truth, and this is where again, the deception comes in, and the lie of the devil is believed.

This is why I have learned, that the fear of God, keeps one out of trouble. Friends, I just long, to have spiritual health, in fear of God, so I can be healthy as well. I realize more then ever, how precious Christs sacrifice was. For by His stripes we are healed.  Read Isaiah 53:5 King James only.  (For holiness and the anointing of holy word)

He has shown me this maybe even for such a moment as this. I long to see as God sees, to know His heart. To know what pleases Him. A healthy soul, can lead to a healthy physical being as well. To the glory of God and because I love the Lord……

Never doubt healing from God, in any area of your life. Or the power of God.  For all things are possible, including healing.  But it comes from repentance, and from obedience to God. I will not argue with that.  

Don’t you long for a spiritual cleansing in all areas of your life, so it can also affect your physical health?  I do….

I see it so clearly today. For some reason, God knows. But…In fact, I submit to God, and even here pray, never to sin or long for sin, in my life. It hurts a soul…..It hurts our health. It hurts……

This is why we love life, for Christ is the way, the truth, and life. John 14:6. We hate the sin of death. The wages of sin is death. Read KJV Romans 6:23.  

Thank you Jesus, I love you, and I am grateful for the mind of Christ, for spiritual and yes physical health, in gratitude of my salvation.  

And with that said….

I don’t understand why people embrace halloween, or even participate in the celebration, when it screams of spiritual death. It does not honor God. And isn’t that sin? Any sin hurts us.

Lord help people….Repentance may it clean the slate. BUT HE THAT SINNETH AGAINST ME WRONGETH HIS OWN SOUL: ALL THEY THAT HATE ME LOVE DEATH. Proverbs 8:36

Just my thoughts today, but thoughts that pray they bless God, and bring healing, physically and spiritually, as we submit to God, His Holy truth, and in love,

THE FEAR OF GOD ~ DO YOU HAVE IT? BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


HOW TO HAVE FAITH ORDER THE BOOK HERE.... http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

HOW TO HAVE FAITH ORDER THE BOOK HERE….
http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

 

THE FEAR OF GOD DO YOU HAVE IT?

I want to talk a bit, about the fear of God. Not many people, like this idea of being afraid of God. And I am not just talking about reverence or respect. I am talking about fearing Him.

To some this is just absurd. I know, because I have talked to people about this before, and some of the answers I get amazes me, and I hear things like, I am not afraid of God, I love Him, He is my savior. Yes, I love God, too, and yes, He is my savior, but….I fear Him.

Throughout the King James Bible, there are scriptures that attest to having fear of Him. And even as I thought about this, I knew, I had to run to my computer, and capture this thought, yes, even in fear of Him, to be obedient.

It’s easy for our hearts to get cold, indifferent, and when we do, we have to see this, and stir our hearts back up. Disciplining ourselves….This is why, I try, whenever I can, to give Him glory, or to acknowledge Him, or to defend that which is right, against the wrong. I don’t want evil to think
they can manipulate situations, or to silence me, when I have all of my being because of God and His mercy.

So the fear of God, makes me sometimes be bold, makes me stronger, gives me courage…..why? Because someday, I will stand before God. Someday, when it is all said and done, the book of life will be opened, and God and I will see all that I did. The lambs book of life, will be opened, and it will also reveal I gave my heart to Christ. So, when these books are opened, I want my heart to reflect, that I “disciplined” myself to have this fear…

This fear, keeps me away from sin, it keeps me mindful, that we reap what we sow, and that God is not mocked. Galatians 6:7. I hope this inspires you somewhat, to understand, what I mean from this…..no one cannot tell you what to do! But God, in His spirit, can make a way for you to understand. And if you choose to fear Him, the blessings are more than can be counted….

THE FEAR OF THE LORD, IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE; BUT FOOLS DESPISE WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION. PROVERBS 1:7. 

Blessings….Elena Ramirez

ARE YOU LIMITING GOD? BY RELIGION, BY LACK OF FAITH, BY BEING REALISTIC?


I do not want to limit God.  In anyway…..So sometimes, I have to look within.  I have to see what I am saying.  What I am thinking, what I am pouring into my spirit, that may take away His truth, or Holy spirit, from speaking to me, to know, what His will is.

God is Holy.  He tells us, the goal, is to be Holy like him.  Yes, God is sovereign.  Yes, His will be done.  But what can I do to even persuade Him, if there is a possibility?  Remember Moses?  In Exodus 32….He persuaded God, to think different, after the people had built an idol, and offended Him.  But Moses reasoned with God.  And God repented.  Moses changed the mind of God.  I want to reason with God.  For changes.  For results.  For progress.  After all, He does say.  All things are possible with God…..Read Luke 1:37.  King James Version.

All things…..So, I start with my faith.  Remembering, holiness, is the goal.

I have had some struggles, in my faith, in the past.  I am sure, every Christian may go through that.  I can only imagine, the despair, one might, feel, if they do not even believe in Jesus Christ, as Lord and savior.  I cannot even fathom that.  Because, when I did not believe, in God, and His son, His Holy Spirit, those were the darkest times of my life.

Yet, I have struggled, I have wondered, why Lord, why?  I have had to pursue, my faith, and stir it up, when I have faltered.  When I have not seen progress, when I have just tried to hang on, because there is nothing else, to get me through.  I have had to learn, to humble myself.  To repent, yes, even daily, for some thought, I may have had.  I have had to learn to discipline myself, like a disciple.  I have had to remind myself, of past testimonies, and I have had to just surrender, myself, more, and more to God.

Its not always easy, doing what I do, for the Lord.  Doors have not been opened.  I do what I am doing, basically for free.  Because I see the need.  I have not pursued the corporate world, or a career, besides my writing.  I am a Christian writer, and my desire, is to give Him, glory, honor, and praise, in my writings, to speak a word of truth, to the Lost, and to be an inspiration, to His people.  So, I cannot let go.  I cannot limit God.  I am not letting go, and I am going to get a victory.  I have to.  I have invested my life into this.

I have had to trust His word.  Everytime, I write something, I try to use, Gods word, as the foundation.  I take it, in my own life, and I apply it.  I pray it.  I meditate on it.  I plant it, in my own life.  Like a seed.  And by the harvest of it, I chew it, I swallow it, I meditate on it, and I expect, miracles, in my life.  Because of Gods word.

I am a very literal person.  That is the only way, I can describe myself.  I don’t play word games, I am not into trying to make something, that is not true, or possible.  I remember, God says we are judged by our words.  So, what purer thing, can I use, but Gods word?  And hopefully, the purest form from the Bible.  The KJV.  But, in doing so, I have learned, there is no limit, to what God can do.  So it has made me realize, God does not change.  I change, by who I am in Him.  By His word.

Recently, I believe I overcame, something in my faith, that has put me right where I am now.  In the sense, that I have, a greater, expectation, of who God is.  My faith, has grown.  So, because it has grown, I am expecting, greater things from God.  Greater possibilities, to see, who He is.  In all His power, and might.  To trust His word, and the testimonies, from His Holy Word.  I long, to see His power, working in church, in the body of Christ.

I long to see, the Holy Spirit, manifested, into the supernatural.  I long, to see, God take something, that is nothing, and make it into something, because of who He is.  I long, to see people healed, at the altars of God.  Pastors, praying for their people, the laying of hands, to release the anointing. To sense, and feel the Holy Spirit, going up and down the aisles, to do a new thing for somebody.  To see devils cast out of peoples lives, to see, people restored, renewed.  To see, circumstances change, that seemed totally impossible, but possible.  Because faith kicked in.  Because God was pleased, and His presence, was manifested, and miracles happen.  I long to see God working out something in my life, and others, wherever I am.  And yes, in the church, I may be visiting, or attending.

More then anything, I long to see Salvations.  People giving their hearts to God, for everybody to see.  Going to the front of the church, a public declaration.  As they give their hearts to Christ.  Receiving their Salvation.  Not ashamed.  Not closing my eyes, and every eye opened, in the congregation, in this beautiful display of love, but everyone, seeing, someone give their hearts to God, so others can be encouraged.  Knowing, angels are rejoicing, at that soul, who makes a commitment to God, not ashamed, who sees.  It should not be a private thing.  Because Christ told us, if we were ashamed of Him, He would be ashamed of us.  So. Yes, I long to see Gods power, working.  At the altars of God, and everywhere, we may seek Him.

I love the Lord.  I know you probably do too.  But, thats a question I would hope, we would ask ourselves now.  Because tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  So, when I think of anyone, I love, I try to think.  What pleases this person?  What pleases God?  God says, if we love Him, we will obey His commandments.  We will have faith, and trust Him.  We will come into agreement, with HIM, and His word.  We will seek Him, and acknowledge Him, never ashamed, and so much more…..I remind myself, often of His sacrifice on the cross.  I envision it, often, to stir myself, and remember, how great His sacrifice was for me.  For you.

About a year ago, a year ago and three days, to be exact, I wrote a Post here, that forever changed me.  THE CONSPIRACY BETWEEN THE KING JAMES BIBLE, AND THE NIV BIBLE.  SCRIPTURES, HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED, COMPROMISED, DELETED.  IS YOUR BIBLE, STILL HOLY?  I have had more people, not believe, what I have wrote, about that.  I have had people, actually challenge me, and argue with me.  And for the most part, people, do not challenge me or argue with me.  But something about this post, has made people, actually reject my thoughts on it.  Some polite, some not so polite.  I have been wearing my armor a lot lately.  Trying not to get offended, and its been working.  But sometimes, I have just had to walk away.

I am not offended, and I am not judging anyone in this, but it has made me look at it, even more, and even more, I am more adamant, that what I believe is true.  I will not use, another Bible, because even though the transcripts of the Bible, have been translated throughout time.  The only closest thing, we have in purity, and being complete is the King James bible.  So, I trust it.  I prayed about it today, and felt the Lord give me a challenge, that I will not post here, due to space, and time, etc.  But I did post it on the original post.

Anyway, to conclude my thoughts here, I just want to press more into God, because of who He is.  I am taking His word literally.  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in that the thing whereto I sent it.  Isaiah 55:11.  I am sending it out in prayer, in hope, in believing.  I am standing for life.  I know Christ, came to give life abundantly.  So, I am believing.  I am expecting to see supernatural things, happen, and do you know why?  To bring Him glory.  So it will be a testimony to His glory.

I want to encourage you.  Don’t give up.  Whose report are we going to believe in?  I think sometimes, we can get discouraged, and just throw the towel in.  I don’t care what people say.  I am not giving up. Whether, I get support, in my belief or not.  I am not going to let others stop me, in my faith.  Those unbelievers, or intellectuals.  Or realists, or those who just don’t have faith.  Sometimes, you just have to know that you know.  Even with religion.  (rules traditions, made up by groups, men, etc.)  Whether, they think it is phony or a farce, or just plain “hocus pocus.”  a term, I think should be related, to the occult, not Christianity, or in the signs and wonders of God.

I trust God.  In relationship, with Him, through Jesus Christ.  Not religion.  I am pressing in on my faith, and I am taking His word, the King James Bible, and I am using it as a sword, as my truth, as my manual to life, and I am applying every word, from my health, to my wealth, to what He says about Salvation, and His commandments etc.

And I am not going to limit God.  I pray, its the beginning of more miracles, to say…..Look What the Lord, has done for me.  How about you?  Are you limiting God?  By Religion, by lack of Faith, by being realistic?  Don’t let that stop you.  Press into God, by His word, His true word, and see the difference.  To have a relationship with Christ.  Not a religion, or being intellectual, but spiritual, because of who He is, in His love, and Holy Spirit.

This scripture, is just another reminder to me, how important it is to God.  And as I close, what do you think happens when you use a different Bible version?  The wording has changed, its been enhanced.  It has been added meaning, from men, not God, and it diminishes the truth.  Please read my blog, to know this is truth, and pray, let God reveal that which is truth to you.  BY HIM, BY HIS STANDARDS!

WHAT THING SOEVER I COMMAND YOU, OBSERVE TO DO IT:  THOU SHALT NOT ADD THERETO, NOR DIMINISH FROM IT.  

DEUTERONOMY 12:32  KING JAMES BIBLE

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I praise you.  Today, in my reading, I read the words, from you that said….“Take heed to thyself”  to remember your ways, to be obedient, to watch myself.  (Deuteronomy 11) Lord, I do have this hunger and thirst within me, to want to be careful.  To not take anything for granted.  To push in more, and more in my faith, with your love.  To see results, in my own personal life, but the lives of others.  I do not want to limit you, or your power, or your ability.  Because I am afraid, of what people may think.  Or if it looks strange.  Lord, your ways are not my ways.  I long for your ways, in my life.  To see your power, to see your healings, and the Holy spirit, doing great and mighty things.  Lord, give me please wisdom.  Open my spiritual eyes, to hunger, and thirst for your truth.  Your ways.  Your love…..Lord, I do not want to limit you, in my life.  I surrender, even here, to you, to use me for your glory, honor, and praise.  I repent, humble before you, for my failings, yes as a human.  For you are God.  I do not apologize, for who you are.  Your ways, change us.  To be in your likeness.  Holiness, that is the goal…..Your word, your true word, brings it forth.  I thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen

SPIRITUAL CLEANSING ~ THINGS I HAVE LEARNED, TO GET RID OF THE DEVIL PART I (REPENTANCE)


Please Note:

This is intended for a Christian. In order for anybody, to take this to heart, they must first secure their salvation, that it is in tact.  Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, and Savior.

I have been a Christian for a while.  I have learned a lot in this walk with Christ.  Everything, I write, is to the glory of God.  I am His servant, I am His child, and every moment, I live, and breathe, and have my being, it is because of who I am in Christ.

As a sinner, who was saved by grace, I see the error of my ways in many ways.  I see, things, I had to do, to get right with God.  When one repents, that is the beginning of a spiritual cleansing.  True repentance, in the sight of a Holy God, is required first, and foremost, for salvation.  For we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.

I am writing this, because I see, Christians (or people, who think they are Christians, but they don’t know Gods truth)  so they are oppressed, or may be experiencing, spiritual warfare.  And I want to help them.  Through Christ only.

For, one may carry spiritual baggage, or curses, may be established, from generation to generation. Things may not always change for the new Christian.  Or things may still be evident, in an old Christians life, if they have not made changes.

One may see, they need to get a spiritual bath.  Baptism, in the Holy spirit, is also needed.  And bringing the Holy spirit, is always needed to fight off, and ward off the devil.  And when I say, this, I do not say it in a religious, context.  Or what religion says.  for there are so many different, thoughts, on baptism.  And from different, religions.    I say, it in the sense, that one would repent, and be baptized, making themselves, one in Christ.  To receive the spiritual cleansing.  I am talking about being baptized, when you are an adult, and you can understand the significance, of baptism.  That it truly is newness of life.  To receive cleansing.  My friend “G” shared this, and brought perspective.

To receive, as Christ did, the Holy spirit, to guide you, and give you discernment.  To know the difference.  To know, what is right, and wrong.  What is evil, what is good.  Many people, do not know the difference.  With all the junk I see, sometimes on television, or movies, they try to make evil look good, and people are deceived.  So you need to know, to receive your cleansing.

To stop the devil.  So he does not have a “legal” right to hurt you.  Yes, we are saved by grace, but only the grace of God, can stop the legal rights the enemy, can impose on you.  Remember Job?  Before he attacked, the devil,asked God, about the hedge around him.  The blood of Jesus, is that hedge.  (and I will talk about this more, in the next post.)

The devil, the adversary of God, is an angel.  A fallen angel.  He was kicked out of heaven, because he wanted to lift himself up high as God.  He is not Gods equal.  So people, need to know first, and foremost they need to know this, and not make a comparison.  God is almighty God.  And there is none else.

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me:  I girded thee, though thou has not known me:  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside Me.  I am the Lord, and there is none else.  Isaiah 45:5-6

Lets say, for the sake of communication, one has dabbled, unknowingly, into things, of the devil.

The occult, the supernatural, astrology, new age thinking, idolatry, etc.  There are so many things, that people, can do, or have done, to open doors, that have given “place” to the devil. Sin.

It is so important to know God, love God, and know His word, and yes, very importantly, obey God.  Even here, as I write this, I sense and realize how important, the fear of God is, even as the beginning of wisdom.  It is our hedge of protection, by the blood of Jesus.  The sacrifice, of Christ, took the curse of the penalty of sin, away from us.  Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.  Having therefore these promises dearly beloved, let us “cleanse” ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.  II Corinthians 7:1

Many think because they accept Christ, that the devil will not attack.  A misconception, because he wants to steal you back.  He wants “you” to cancel your salvation.  He does not want you to grow.  He wants you afraid.  But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.  II Timothy 1:7 The devil, does not want you to know truth, to set yourself, free, and others.  He will try to steal the word, you have received, even in your salvation.  Remember this, because Christ, told us he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.

God will not let that happen, but you have your part in this.

So, even though, we know the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy, praise God it is so good to know, Christ came to give life, and life abundantly.  Here and into eternity.  What we do now, affects us for our future, after we pass.

So it is so important, to renew the mind, in Christ, to fight off your enemy.  So you need to know the tricks of the enemy.  You need to know who you are in Christ.  You need to know what offends God, and opens doors to the devil.  You need to know your own authority, you can take in the name of Jesus.

This subject, has so many portals, and roads, you can take, that have opened the door, to the enemy.  Who can even know?  So many are totally in the dark, not knowing, they have made a way for the enemy.  But God knows, when a life, (a soul) has made the wrong choice.  So, if you do not take the road, the only road, with Christ as the way, the truth, and life, you will be lost. (John 14:6) Get that straight right away, there is no other way, but by Christ.

Do not let the devil, confuse you, misunderstanding, Gods ways, for they are not up for debate.  You will only try to fight a battle, and lose, that truly belongs to God alone.  You will not see results, unless you totally relinquish yourself to Christ, totally.

Yes, I will share many things with you, that I have learned, but you must seek God in prayer, you must submit totally to God.  Give no place to the devil.  Resist him, and he will flee.

The first key, in repentance, I share with you, as a mind set, as a principle, as a thing to pray is this:

Ask God first, to show you how to submit to Him.  James 4:7-8 Submit yourselves, therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, ye sinners, and purify your hearts, ye double minded.  Do you see the word, “cleanse” and “purify”?   Take on who Christ, is in His holiness, for your cleansing, and protection, for holiness, to be yours.

Repent, even now, after you read this.  Whether you think, you have done anything wrong or not.  Coming before God humble, He will lift you up.  But, He avoids the proud. Come to God humble.  He will show you, how you gave place to the devil, and you may even know….but the key is being humble in the sight of a Holy God.  The devil was proud, don’t let that be your downfall as well.  Repent…..

As I myself, pray, to God, for revelation, to cover the bases for you and for myself, for our families. Spiritual cleansing, has to come in stages, in our walk with Christ, for He is Holy.  He has called us to holiness as well, and it takes time, but know this, in that time you walk with God, the devil, will do everything, he can to stop you.  It is your responsibility, as a Christian, to do all you can to give him “no place.”

This is the introduction to the first part of this series.  I recommend, you sign up, here at the blog, or my Facebook “like” page, to get the updates on this subject.  They will be posted, as God gives me the word of knowledge, or insight, I need to know to discern His will, and thoughts, in this matter.

Who knows, it could turn into a book, if the right, publisher came along.  All to the glory of God, and with a heart, and mindset, to help people.  So many are lost, we need to reach them for Christ.  To show them truth, to show them keys to live a life worthy of Christ sacrifice.  To break curses, to be victorious.

I am trying….as I say this again.  I am only Gods servant, humble in His sight.  Thank you Jesus, for your help.  There is victory over the enemy, by Christ.  Thank you Lord.

With Love, in Christ, as I submit to God Almighty….

Just my Thoughts….

Elena Ramirez

Father, I praise you, I thank you, I adore you, in spirit and truth.  Lord, I sense, you want me to write about spiritual cleansing, about sharing, things, I have learned to get rid of the devil.  To break curses, to heal the broken hearted, to make changes, that can only come from you, by Christ.  May cleansing, and repentance, being humble before you, begin this process.  Lord, protect me in this.  Protect the reader, who has come to a place, where they are ready to take this spiritual bath, to do all they can for spiritual cleansing.  So clean robes, robes of righteousness, can be worn in holiness, free from the enemy.  So, he will not have a legal right, to attack.  But this will ward off the enemy, by the blood of Jesus.  Even here, I plead the blood of Jesus, completely around us, our families, our finances, and ask for your intervention in this matter.  For the fear of you is the beginning of wisdom.  And yes, Lord, the battle is yours.  Help us fight your enemy, by your ways.  So we can say, look what the Lord has done for me.  For you glory, honor, and praise.  In Jesus name.  Amen
