WHEN YOU SIN IT HURTS GODS FEELINGS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2I had a thought, earlier, as I was watering my garden.  And I thought, how good God is.  How wonderful is all of His creation.  How thoughtful, kind, considerate, and beautiful with love, are His thoughts toward us.  

But sin, hurts Gods feelings…. when we sin.  

O LORD, HOW GREAT ARE THY WORKS! AND THY THOUGHTS ARE VERY DEEP.  Psalms 92:5  KJV.

And I was thinking, yes, He is silent many times.  He hides himself from us, sometimes, so we will search for Him.  And I am sure he does think about what we do.  

AND HE SAID, I WILL HIDE MY FACE FROM THEM, I WILL SEE WHAT THEIR END SHALL BE:  FOR THEY ARE A VERY FROWARD GENERATION, CHILDREN IN WHOM IS NO FAITH.  DEUTERONOMY 32:20.  KJV.  

Do you see that last part of that verse, God is telling us, there are some who have no faith.  And this is why He hides himself from us.  

As many of you know, I wrote the book, “How To Have Faith.”  Because there was a time, I struggled, and I learned there are principles, in pleasing God, and I have to admit, I learned the hard way.  

But I am glad I did, and I sometimes still trip, and miss it, that is why I always recommend “daily repenting”, and using a King James Bible.   So you will hear His voice, and not another.  So you can be on the same page with God.  Not using a corrupted word.  

But….

As I was thinking this morning, it grieved me for God, that many of us, yes, say we believe in God, but we act like the world.  We continue in sin.  And it made me think, how it must grieve God, how sad, he must be, because we are his children, but many of us do not know truth, that will set us free.  

In fact, I was talking to a man on social media, just the other day, and he could not see how sin separates us from God.  He believed, that once he accepted Christ as Lord and savior, that was it, it was a done deal.  In fact, I see that a lot from many Christians, and they think they are saved.  Yet, they sin.  They think they have a license to sin, because they accepted Christ.  They don’t see the danger.  They don’t see, that un-repented, sin, will cause someone to lose their salvation.  And many don’t, but there are scriptures there that do warn.  It can be lost.  But he did not see this.  Even here, read Ezekiel 33, and Revelation 22:18-19 also warns it for those who do not obey God in using corrupted word.  

I tried to warn him about the benefits of daily repentance, but he snubbed me, and actually told me I was not worth talking to.  Hmm.  The next day, the Lord told me I was worth it, and reminded me, I was His daughter, and an ambassador for Christ.  And to continue to walk in love….And Father gave me this verse.  

BUT FOOLISH AND UNLEARNED QUESTIONS AVOID, KNOWING THAT THEY DO GENDER STRIFES.  AND THE SERVANT OF THE LORD MUST NOT STRIVE; BUT BE GENTLE UNTO ALL MEN, APT TO TEACH, PATIENT, IN MEEKNESS INSTRUCTING THOSE THAT OPPOSE THEMSELVES; IF GOD PERADVENTURE WILL GIVE THEM REPENTANCE TO THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH; AND THAT THEY MAY RECOVER THEMSELVES OUT OF THE SNARE OF THE DEVIL, WHO ARE TAKEN CAPTIVE BY HIM AT HIS WILL.  II Timothy 2:23-26  KJV. 

Anyway….This particular individual, knew some scripture, and “picked and chose” what he wanted from the Bible, but He did not rightly divide the word, of truth, as II Timothy 2:15 KJV tells us. And I believe, if he does not see the error of his ways, he will be ashamed, when he stands before God.  And perhaps will not make it to the Kingdom of God.  Heaven. 

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS, HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  ISAIAH 59:2.  KJV.  

Theres that word again, “Hid” and I thought, Lord, don’t hide from me.  Forgive me.  

I do believe repentance over and over is good, it proves to God, we are serious.  And I believe in daily repentance, because we can miss it. It proves to ourselves, when we sin, and we are sad, humble, throwing away our pride, totally remorseful, for “hurting him” because we sinned, that we know, only His mercy, can free us.  It is not a license to sin.  Remember, Christ told us, even our thoughts can be sin.  

Every stripe He stood, and took for our healing spiritually and physically hurt Him, physically as well as spiritually.  Read 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.  

And we are going to take that for granted?  Shame on any of us, that would deliberately sin, and not take note, how that hurts Him for us.  That we would shabbily take our salvation for granted.  

Just knowing that for me, wants to be more considerate, polite, respectful, and honorable to Him.  With love.  To depart from sin.  To want to please Him. To serve Him, with all my heart soul, and might.  To not treat Him like an ATM.  Or just come to Him, when I need something.  How rude that must seem to be to Him.  Lord, forgive me.  

I guess, thats why I came to the thought, that it must hurt His feelings.  After all, think of all that He has done for us, from the beginning.  How it must have grieved Him, that Adam and Eve sinned.  If only they had gone to Him, and asked Him again, after the devil made it a question.  

…..YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1.  KJV.  

See the devil was testing her, and she did not know truth.  To even have “faith” in what God said, and she sinned, as did Adam, by eating the fruit. 

God was testing them both as well.  And when they disobeyed, that sin separated them from God, and they were cast out of the garden of eden.  God did get angry.  

Don’t think there will not be a wrath for the sins, one does.  Why else, do you think its healthy to have the fear of God, as we are commanded?   I don’t question Gods King James word.  I don’t read something, and question who He is, or His motives, in how He dealt with people.  Or why?  I do this because I see, I need to fear God.   

But many don’t fear God, and its not taught.

Anyway, my friends, you have to dig deeper into Gods King James word.  You have to have fear of God.  You have to pray, you have to walk in love, and you have to try and keep Gods law, and many do not keep the law.  Another deception from the enemy.  But if you search Gods holy word, to understand, then you will start gaining wisdom.  In these matters.  

But first understand, if you truly love God, you don’t want to hurt His feelings.  For many reasons.  You don’t want Him to hide His face from you.  You don’t want to lose the blessings.  You don’t want to make yourself, your own enemy.  You don’t want to reap what you sowed.  You don’t want Gods wrath.  

I think of Judas.  He could have gone to the cross, after He sinned, and betrayed Christ.  He was a disciple.  For all intents and purposes, it looked like he had salvation.  But betrayal to Christ, was a sin.  Do you think he made it to heaven, for not repenting?  NO!

But instead, his sin, caused him to hang himself.  Thats what the devil wants all of us to do.  And un-repented sin, does hang it on themselves.  If only he had taken that sin, to the cross, what a story of redemption that would have been.  

Friends, I hope this helps you to see, if you love God, if you truly care, remember, He created you in His image.  He gave you feelings.  He gave you a conscience.  If you are not seeing the danger of sin.  If you are not seeing, what He has done for you to free you from sin.  You are living a lie.  And where does that come from?

It does grieve Him, but when anybody is hurt, think about it, after a while, the hurt turns to anger, and there are sometimes a price to pay.   We reap what we sow.  I know I have. 

Why pay it, when Christ paid it for you?

Yes, it grieves Him it makes Him sad when we sin.  

REPENTING DAILY CAN MAKE YOU MINDFUL OF THIS…..

I THOUGHT IT GOOD TO SHEW THE SIGNS AND WONDERS THAT THE HIGH GOD HATH WROUGHT TOWARD ME.  DANIEL 4:2  KJV.

MAY THE “WILL” OF THE LORD BE MAGNIFIED IN 2018 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2May the “will” of the Lord be magnified in 2018.  

Speaking, and concentrating on that, gives me such hope.  Because more then ever, I am seeing who God is.  I am seeing His ways.  I am seeing my mistakes, that led to sin.  And what I have reaped….I am seeing How great Christ is, I am seeing His thoughts…..manifested.  

It is a release, so to speak of my faith.  To speak His will be done.  

You know, we all have desires of the heart, hopes, dreams, and even visions.  But if we leave God out of the equation, well like the saying goes, in scripture.  “unless the Lord, builds the house, we labor in vain.”

I am tired of laboring in vain.  To be honest.  I am tired of having poor, or bad judgment, where I made mistakes, or where, even things were not fulfilled in my life.  I am tired, of wanting something, and maybe even saying, it in the name of the Lord, but it did not come to pass.  Praying for something, but praying amiss.  And I think not praying for Gods will to be done, is praying amiss.  

YE ASK, AND RECEIVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ASK AMISS, THAT YE MAY CONSUME IT UPON YOUR LUSTS.  JAMES 4:3  KJV.  

Just saying, even here, but the prosperity message, is asking God amiss….He is not an ATM!

I want to touch base on this slightly, so maybe you can be encouraged as well, you see, I know this is my gift and calling, to speak truth, and inspire you.  Whether it be one person, a thousand, or even 100 billion people.  I want to be used by God, but I have learned….  

His will be done!

I never want to put a limit on God.  But I probably have, even in my own small thinking.  I want to get past that.  I want to grow.  I want you to grow.  There should never be a limit we put on God, because of who He is.  The earth, is the Lords, and the fullness thereof.  

But I truly believe, He wants us to seek Him for who He is, not what He can give.  He wants us to know what pleases Him.  What His power can do, but He has requirements, He has ways of excellence, that must truly grieve Him, when we misinterpret who He is.  Or even deny Him.  To me its very sad, to not see or know Him.  His presence, is the present, if you get my drift.  But His spirit, is Holy.    And He wants that for us too.  So we have our part to seek that.  To obey, to love Him, in obedience.  

His will be done, His righteousness, and Kingdom be magnified.  As I seek Him, all things will be added.  He says, all things are possible with Him.  All things.  

But there are principles, ways, commandments from God that must be fulfilled.  Laws…..

Laws that should be kept in the name of the Lord, and actually in fear of God, but sadly, many do not keep Gods laws.  Or wants, and ways, in the name of the Lord, through Christ.  

I took a break from social media, recently, during the holidays, to refresh myself, to fill myself, up, in the Lord.  I felt empty, poured out.  I felt like I was running on fumes, but before I did, I had a very interesting conversation, with a so called sister in the Lord.  

She was very adamant about promoting the “prosperity message.”   And her thoughts, disturbed me, that she felt the way she did.  Basically she said, that the Old Testament, was just a history lesson, and that anything she did, was covered by the blood of Jesus, and to be explicit, the way she communicated, she expressed, she basically believed, she had a “license” to sin.  WRONG!

Many Christians, have been taught, that we are saved by grace.  Which is true.  But many have the thought, and are taught by the blind, that the laws, from the Old Testament, do not apply, because of the new covenant in Christ, which is the New Testament.  So they do not think of the “laws” they do not try and keep the laws, that Moses gave, from God.  

Now, I am not going to get into a theological debate, with anybody, or argue and debate it, because there are some things, that may not apply.  But when you are talking about Gods’s commandments, and what to keep and not to keep, well I warn here, tread carefully!  Very carefully!  

Scripture says, we are only free from the law of sin, and death.  It does not say anything about Gods commandments.  

FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  ROMANS 8:2.  KJV.  

Christ who fulfills the law, became the sacrifice.  That is holy.  A big difference.  Compared to what is sacrificed   Please read Matthew 5, from a King James bible, to see, what Jesus says about the law.  

As I discussed this with this “wicked” woman, I realized, how lost she was.  I realized, how important Gods commandments are.  But I also realized how strong her convictions were, and because she was misled, she could mislead others.  She was trying to mislead me, and there was no way, I was going to drink that kook-aid.   That was very deceptive.  And one key factor, was she did not walk in love.  Her thoughts were judgmental, and very mean spirited.  Christ said, we would be known by the Love, and her fruit did not reveal that.  So I rejected her thoughts.  

And the first thought I had as I discussed this with her, did she think God flip flopped, from the Old Testament, and changed His mind?

His word, says He changes not!  He did not change His mind, from the Old Testament, to the New Testament.  He sent Christ to fulfill the law.  

MALACHI 3:6  FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT.  THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED.  

This is what Christ said according to my King James bible, on the matter about the law:  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF THE PROPHETS;  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFILL.  FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL BREAK ONE OF THESE LEAST COMMANDMENTS, AND SHALL TEACH MEN SO, HE SHALL BE CALLED THE LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL DO AND TEACH THEM, THE SAME SHALL BE CALLED GREAT IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 5:17-19.  KJV.

She was trying to teach me not to keep the law of God, and I knew better.  So I could be prosperous.  You know what makes me prosperous?  Releasing myself to the “will” of the Lord, that can never go wrong.  Never.  

Please know better in this matter.  Do not be deceived by the blind, by wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote the “prosperity message.”  Keep Gods laws!  

And the first one, I would recommend, is repent.  Even if you do not think you have done wrong or even sinned.  Thats pride. And confess Christ as your Lord and savior.  Release yourself, in faith, to trust Him, so the will of God can be magnified in your own life, so you can be happy.

And yes, start using a King James bible, so you will be obedient to God in this matter, and the words you claim are holy, not corrupted because of disobedience.  So you can have holy vision.  True vision.

WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH:  BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  Proverbs 29:18.  KJV.

See for me, in the walk I have with the Lord, which is a narrow walk, a straight walk, in finding and searching for truth.  I realize more then ever, to seek the Kingdom of God, in His righteousness, but to release myself, to keep His laws, and to know His will be done.  

No matter what.  No matter if its yes or no. I just have to settle that in my heart, and soul, mind, and being.  

His will be done. So when you pray, remember to pray, His will be done.  His will…..

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, WHEN YE PRAY, SAY OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.  THY KINGDOM COME.  THY WILL BE DONE, AS IN HEAVEN SO IN EARTH.  Luke 11:2.  KJV.

Don’t forget what Christ taught us.  That whatever we bind on earth will be bound, and whatever we loose will be loosed in heaven and earth.  

My desire more then ever.  In my words, in my spirit, in my fear of God.  It is to release His will to be done, in my life, in my family, in my health, in my finances, in what I do for Him, in even my friends.  Who He gives me, or takes from me.  

Being a friend to me in Christ is so important, but I have learned, He brings and takes people away from me.  And I accept that as His will.  

But I will honor His will to be done.  Whether someone agrees with me or not.  Now in 2018, and always.  

And anyone who does not have fear of God in this, is really misled.  Keep Gods laws friends.  So you can be happy.  

Happy New year, of 2018.

DON’T EVER LOSE HOPE ~ GOOD FRIDAY THOUGHTS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2198.jpg

 

DON’T EVER LOSE HOPE….

 
Good Friday…. Just think about it, when Christ died, I am sure, the disciples, were very sad, very despondent, and they lost hope. We can lose hope. I know, sometimes I do, as well, and even though, I know Christ is my Lord, and savior, I do get hopeless.
 
But, there is something within my spirit, by the Holy Spirit, that gives me hope, even knowing, the History. Knowing, He was resurrected. Knowing, right now, at this time, He went to hell, and got the Keys from hell, and cancelled the devils legal right to attack me.
 
Did you know that, during that time, this is when He got the keys to cancel the enemies plan….For you, and me? At this time….He went to hell and took back the right to steal our souls. By getting those keys. And then He was resurrected. He came back to life. It is documented, and then they knew, we all Knew. Only Christ can give us life…….
 
How precious our salvation is. How precious our hope is. Friends, be reminded, today, how beautiful our savior is, and what He did for us. Truly a gift from God. He gives us hope. And so much more, have a blessed Good Friday.
 
Its also my sons, birthday, and I thank God for the hope I see in him as well.
 
Let us hold onto our hope, for the joy, only Christ can give. Don’t let it go, don’t get hopeless. Rejoice, our savior, died, and was resurrected to give us life…..HALLELUJAH!!!!!
 
DO NOT EVER LOSE HOPE!
 
AND WHEN I SAW HIM, I FELL AT HIS FEET AS DEAD. AND HE LAID HIS RIGHT HAND UPON ME, SAYING UNTO ME, FEAR NOT: I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST: I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE, AMEN; AND HAVE THE KEYS OF HELL AND OF DEATH. REVELATION 1:17-18. KJV.

IF YOU HAVE FAITH AMERICA….

If you have faith America, you begin to bless God, because He blesses America….

If you have faith America. You pray for our nation. You pray for our Leaders. You pray…..

If you have faith America, you quit speaking defeat…..

You begin speaking victory. Knowing, you have power of life and death in your tongues. You are careful to speak life.

If you have faith America, you honor life, even the life of the unborn.

If you have faith America, you do not give place to the enemy, but you submit to God, resist the enemy, and he must flee.

If you have faith America, you are loyal to God and country, and to Americas allies.

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.

If you have faith America, you honor the American flag. You honor, others, and their choices. You honor the veteran who fights and died for your rights. You honor, freedom of speech.

If you have faith America, you honor God and country.

If you have faith America, you embrace every truth, every commandment God gives us, as best to your ability. And if you cannot you repent to God.

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….

GIVING GOD ALL THE GLORY…..HONOR AND PRAISE!

I myself, personally, and may the record show. I want to be someone to give God the glory. The Honor, and the praise. Christ told us, if HE be lifted up, He would draw all men to HIM.

How does that happen? Well I think one way, is by giving God the glory. By acknowledging HIM. By not being timid, when you are around people, or denying who He is.

The world does that. They deny God. But you are called to be set apart, for the plan of God, and giving God glory, includes not being ashamed of HIM. Are you ashamed you are a Christian? Oh dear friends, what a deception that is to the body of Christ.

You know, I see this so clearly, but when we do not give God the glory, honor and praise. It steals from God, and it steals from us. For if we, would just shout it out, and give God glory due His name. Yes this world would be a better place. Scripture says, in all thy ways acknowledge HIM. To be directed by HIM. (paraphrasing Proverbs 3:6. King James.)

I don’t want the glory. I want to hide in His beautiful presence, and just see HIS glory draw people to HIM. And I make this point, prominent, because the enemy has always tried to steal the glory from God. From the beginning. Thats why God kicked the devil out of heaven. Because the enemy was jealous. And folks, if you see that characteristic of wanting to get glory, that is a spirit, that is not of God. Run to the throne and humble yourself in the sight of God.  REPENT. And start giving God the glory. In all your ways.

For He is magnificent, and there are no words to describe how great He is. No let me rephrase that, for as I give God glory, I want to direct people to His Holy word.  And the King James Bible does give God glory.  Nothing missing or broken from this Bible.  Not corrupt.

But I want my life to show I tried to give HIM glory.

AND I, IF I BE LIFTED UP FROM THE EARTH, WILL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME. JOHN 12:32.

Stop in the name of Jesus! Stop having conversations with the devil!!!!!  

Oh you know what I am talking about!  That small inner voice, that may even try to be a voice of reason, but it comes straight from hell.  To either tell you, to do this that or the other, and to compromise, and to persuade you, you can do this and that.  

Or that voice that condemns you.  And tells you, you are worthless, or ugly, or someone is better then you, or you cannot do anything, because you are so dumb.  It attacks your sense of confidence.  And believe me, that ugly old devil, will even use people to tell you this.  Reject it!  

You know its wrong.  You know, it does not come from God Himself.  Its not love.  It is rebellious.  It denies His truth, His commandments, and yet you want to talk to that voice?  Walk away from it.  Walk away from that devil.  Why? Because it is sin. 

Rebuke it in the name of Jesus.  Christ says, you can do all things through Him, that strengthens you.  (Paraphrasing Philippians 4:13.  King James)

You see, its a spirit, and that spirit, is meant to cause destruction.  Sure you are aware of it.  Its your conscience!  

But…It is not of God, it is the enemy, the devil.  According to Jesus, and what He has warned us, that the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.

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.   

And it is meant to stop your blessings, or stop someone elses blessings, or to just stop your growth, or someone else, and its pure intent, is to stop anything that has to do with God.  But Christ said, He came to give life!  And yes, abundantly!

I cannot even write the things the purpose of the enemies goal is, because when you get so close to God, anything that is not of God, in holiness, goodness, and love, you abhor. Your spirit rejects…and you need to see that, to be close to God.  Thats a sign you are getting close to God.  And I renounce and deny even listening to that voice.  Because it is not of God.  

Even now, I suppose, I feel prompted to write this.  I just felt that sneaky, conniving voice try to tell me to compromise something, that I long for, in Christ.  And that if I let go of one thing, I would not gain, in another area.  And I thought to myself, that comes straight from the devil.  I don’t have to make deals.  I don’t have to compromise, I don’t have to give into one negative thought for another.  NO!  I rebuke that, in the name of Jesus.   I plead the blood of Jesus, over my mind, and spirit.  I will not give place to the enemy.  In anything, for I know my fathers voice.  And to another I will not follow.  

The bottom line for me, anyway, is the will of God to be done.  As Christ as the example.  He is my source to identify with.  And in my situation.  And in what I desire.  And in what I need.  He can make a way, when there was no way.  And if its not meant to be, then so be it!  I accept that in love, and humbleness before my God.  

My love to God is not dependent on what He does for me in this, and really anything else.  Why?  Because He found me, He saved me, and pulled me out of the miry clay.  He put me on a rock higher.  He loved me, He cleansed my soul. He comforted me.  He poured oil on my head, and like that lamb He protected me.  And He still does!

But, no the enemy, keeps saying well you could do this, and that…but no, I reject that.  I reject it, because I do want to see God glorified, in my circumstances.  I do want to see Him, do a great and mighty thing.  But I realize, He tests us.  And He tests us to see if we are true and loyal.  

And when we try to do it ourselves, that takes away the power, we need to give God in submission.  Comprende?  Look, all I know is that we have to grow.  We have to know our Lords voice.  We have to submit to God.  We have to know our Lord, and not give place to His enemy.  

So that means, study Gods truth, from a good King James Holy word.  No other bible, is holy.  Honestly.  They are corrupted, in their purity, and here again, where else would the devil try to deceive but by changing the Holy word of God?  So you won’t get a blessing, so you won’t know God personally.  

Pray, draw close to God.  Stay away from anything that compromises your walk with Him.  Submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee. Read King James 4:7.    

Your not perfect no, neither am I, but to be close to God.  To receive His truth, and favor, and love, is the greatest gift we can have.  And you don’t want to even lose that by talking to the enemy, by compromising, what Christ did for you and me.  

We have to know our enemy, we have to know his strategy.  We have to know his characteristic, and personality traits.  And whenever I see a liar, or a pride that wants to get all the glory, I know that is not of God.  

And I certainly do not want that trait.  When I see, deception, or compromise, or confusion, that is not of God.  

Look, we are paying the cost, for sin, because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Only Jesus Christ, our dear Lord, and savior, can save us from that penalty.  

But don’t forget how it came. Don’t forget how sin came.  It came by the devil, turning into a snake, and deceiving Eve.  She talked to that devil!  

Remember the lessons of this.  What would have happened if she went and rejected the devil and talked to God?  We all know God, would have told her the truth, don’t eat from the tree of good and evil.  Same thing holds true for now.  Don’t compromise your walk with God.  Don’t seek other entities!  Give yourself completely to God, and learn His ways, not the ways of evil.  The wages of sin is death.  

And while we are talking about that, watch out for that movement of “grace” versus the law…. It actually distorts what Paul the apostle said, and we are not free from the law!  Some people think that is an excuse to sin.  God did not flip flop when He gave us His commandments.  We are only free from the law of sin, and death.  Romans 8;2.  In Christ.  

Don’t talk to that ugly old devil.  Rebuke him.  He is not looking out for your good, if anything he wants to steal your soul, and deceive you, and confuse you.  And folks, sin will do that.  

Remember we have power of life and death in our tongues, and we eat the fruit of that.  (paraphrasing Proverbs 18:21 ~ read from a King James)  So don’t even speak that over yourself as well.  

Just think if Eve had only rebuked him, and gone to God, and talked to Him, the curse would not have taken place.  Be aware of curses.  Be aware, that if you rebuke the devil, you will be blessed.  Because you are being obedient to God.  

Don’t talk to the enemy.  Don’t entertain his wicked devices, submit to God, and be saved from being snared.  This advice is for all of us.  Don’t talk to the devil.  Be obedient to God!

Talk to God.  Know Him, He is the greatest friend, you will, ever, ever, ever have.  Know His love, by His voice.  

Dear friend, I understand, how sometimes we feel beat up in life.  I understand, how even by being around negative people they can make you feel worthless, and that sense of self confidence is gone.  I understand….I truly do.  But, I had to seek God, I had to find my way with Him, and it is in this journey of my own life, I have found Christ, and I have found a peace.  There is no peace to the wicked.  Your life can be a success.  Your life, can change.  But stop talking to that devil.  

And just like Jesus said…. tell that ugly old devil….Get thee behind me satan.  God has my front, back, sides covered, and I will not listen to you.  If anything you have to submit to me, by who I am in Christ.  And I want you out of anything, that has to do with me.  I plead the blood of Jesus!  Be gone, in the name of Jesus!  

AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, GET THEE BEHIND ME, SATAN:  FOR IT IS WRITTEN, THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE.  LUKE 4:8

NOW DO YOU SEE WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE HOLY AND ANOINTED WORD FROM A KING JAMES THAT IS NOT CORRUPTED? FOR IT IS WRITTEN!

I am excited that Spring has sprung.  I am hopeful, and I see that Spring is Gods way of making progress.  Christ told us, He is the vine, and we are the branches, and without Him, we can do nothing.  I do not want to do anything without Christ, and Spring reminds me, to try and grow, to change, and yes to have progress.  I love progress!

I AM THE VINE, YE ARE THE BRANCHES:  HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM, THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT:  FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING.  JOHN 15:5  

Each season that God has created, can bear understanding to who He is.  And how each season can also affect us spiritually.  Spring is a time for new beginnings.  New life.  Summer is a time where things grow, and prepare for the harvest of Autumn.  Where things again evolve, and die off, and prepare for winter.  And in winter, though, it is cold, and life has stopped growing, God still provides.  I see His hand providing in each season.  

When Spring returns, life does begin again, and the world awakes.  Maybe that is why I am hopeful, right now, because I do see how things can change in this season.  I am awake to the possibilities that progress can happen.  His way! 

Christ is new life.  The sacrifice that He gave for us, is very near and upon us, to remind us of His love.  But it had to be His way, for our salvation.  For resurrection came at a great cost, His life for ours.  He gave it all.  And I see, how through His resurrection, we are guaranteed new life.  If we do grow with Him, if we take His love, and see with eyes of compassion, His own suffering, we may be able to understand our own suffering.

I long for a new season. Right now.  Winter was tough on me, for a few reasons.  And I have struggled and yes suffered with this time of no progress.  Yet there was in some ways, progress. I have to be positive and acknowledge this.  But I am human, and this winter season of my life, has made me sad.

 I admit, I am ever so trustful in Gods word, and I believe in the anointing, and holiness of my King James Bible.  I believe in the power of God, but I also see small glimpses of His promises.

I see, in my heart, how there is a time for everything.  As Ecclesiastes says.  And right now, symbolically, in this time of Spring, I want to plant new seeds.  I want to clean the garden of my heart.  I want to be hopeful, and I want to give God glory through it all.  I want to believe with a stronger faith, that progress is mine.  God has a plan, and I trust that plan!

Progress, that may be simple, and which may even be in baby steps, but is proof I am on that road with Christ.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.

Christ, promised us life abundant.  He did not say, it would be easy. But those seasons, of Autumn, and Winter, and yes Summer, have shown me, at least in my life, it has not been easy.

It may not be easy for me, but it is easy for God.  And I ask for easy, because of who He is!  I have had enough of life being hard.  And I cannot compare myself to anyone else, nor do I want to, because we all have our own struggles, but I want to grow!  I want fruit, that expresses who He is in my life.  And it is easy for God, that is why He is God!

For, yes I long for my life to produce a harvest.  A harvest in my soul, that gives glory to God.  A harvest for my family, that the seed, of who I am in Christ, would be passed on, from one generation to the next.  I don’t know my families history, or the things they did, or who they were.  But, I want whoever I am in Christ to be someone who gives glory to God.  To break off curses, perhaps even generational.  To begin blessings.

To touch other lives, perhaps your life.  To speak truth, in love, to see with discernment, obstacles, and hindrances, so I can tweak them to get right with God, so He can remove anything that would stop who I am in His love.

Yes, I am hopeful, for progress.  Even if it is just a simple thing.  But, I must be grateful, in this time of progress.  I must take time to soul search, and see what I can do to please God.  Is it repentance, or just having a better attitude?  Forgiving someone?  Walking in Love.  A big one for me, is avoiding arguments, or battles that are not necessary?

Is it really taking Gods word to heart, law with grace, and being observant of His word, and obeying?

Whatever it is I have to do, I want to move on.  I want to make progress.  And I do see, that Spring is Gods way of making progress, in the world He created.  And I am in awe of who He is, just looking at all of His creation.  I want to see more of His creation, and I pray, that I can.  Because of who He is.

I want to be creative as well.  I want to be the best I can be in Christ.  I want abundant life, and yes, I want to make progress, and all to the glory of God!  Do you see it too?  Are you hopeful?  I hope so dear friends, with Christ, we can do all things, through our Lord, who Strengthens us.  (paraphrasing Phillipians 4:13)

Blessings, Happy Spring to you, on this first day of progress.
