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 more I grow in Christ, and the more I know His Holy word, I am convicted, when I say or do something wrong.

My spirit, just knows, when I am out of line so to speak.  Or if I somehow get into a place, where I know, I have done something or said something, that is not strong, is not right for lack of better words in the sight of God.  I know it…

Sometimes, we compromise.  Yet we should be strong in who we are in Christ.  If we know the truth, and we are free, totally free, as Christ has told us, and we have given our hearts, we are grateful for another chance.  Yet, we live in this world, we are called not to be a part of the world, but we can stumble.  We can even fall.

I love repentance for this very reason, but with that said, and knowing we can be given grace.  Do we compromise who we are?  I suppose, because I understand, that grace cannot be extended without repentance, what about those, who have given their hearts to Christ, but they think that is it?  As babies in Christ, do we think we have nothing else to do?  I see the difference, because I am no longer a baby in Christ.  

But babies…without truth, or understanding of Gods ways, and yes even bad doctrine.  They don’t think they have to do anything, any more, and they think they have a place in heaven.  They actually in some twisted sense, believe, it now gives them permission to sin.  Their salvation, is in tact, they think….so they do what they want, and sin.  They compromise Gods grace. 

You know, it is a good thing to know good true, King James scriptures.  Because the other versions, compromise a word here and there.  And it does take away the holiness.  So, when I look at my King James, I see.  God is not mocked.

God is not mocked my friends.  And we never get away with anything, we say or do, for the final outcome, is documented in the book of life.  And yes our names if we have given our hearts to Christ is in the lambs book of life.  Two separate books.  

But, if we play with our salvation, if we play with what Christ has done for us, we can have our names removed, or blotted, out of the Lambs book of life.  Once saved, is not always saved.  And many would argue with that, but do your own search, and see, use the King James Bible as the search, and look for words that mention “blot” or “blotted.”

Every thing we have said or done, is being recorded.  We are judged by our words.  I suppose I am writing this, myself, because I do have the fear of God.  And I want to be stronger, as a Christian, and yes as an ambassador of Christ.  

I don’t like hitting people on the head with the Bible, yet, I know, I have to be firm in my own belief.  I cannot compromise.  I found myself, yesterday chatting with a friend, but I felt like I compromised who I was in Christ, and worse, that I compromised what Gods word says.  I repented.

Such a balance we have to find, in who we are in Christ.  But truly, we have to be mindful yes, of His grace.  But do we compromise?  One compromise, can lead to another, and then we would be totally deceived by the enemy.  I just want us to see, because I know I have not heard this message, from any prominent ministry, but one must be so careful.

I love the Lord, I love serving Him, and I pray He uses me, but I also want to be someone who speaks truth, boldly, and not compromising, yet with love.  I wanted this person to feel love, and not the wrath of God.  

Yet, could we do a disservice if we are not saying exactly what God says?  Lord forgive us.  Help us.  This is where the word “judging” can come in, because many know truth, but do not say anything, because the enemy can use judging to interrupt truth.  Yet we are called to expose darkness.  Do we, speak truth or do we compromise?  

This can cover so very, very much.  But, please my friends, do not take your salvation for granted.  I don’t know what you have learned, or if you come from a place, where you think once saved, is always saved.  Christ told us, that there would be many who would come to him, and say didn’t we cast out devils, in your name.  And He would say….depart, I never knew you.Those are words you do not want to hear, when you stand before Christ, at the end of your lifetime. 

Be very aware of Gods grace.  But try, my friends, try, to not compromise who you are.  Repentance, before a Holy God, being humble, trying to please Him, is what counts.  And why? In fear of Him like the many scriptures tell us.  Oh the fear of God is healthy!

I think of this example, say you have a boss, you love, he is kind, he is generous, he is flexible.  But when he says don’t do something, don’t do it.  And why, because you want your job.  You want to please this boss, because you know, your livelihood is at stake.  You need your job.  Well, I look at it this way myself.  I know God is love, I know He is kind.  He is generous, He extends grace, but I have to take all of His word, and not compromise it.  And why, because I do want to serve Him, but I also know my salvation is at stake.  I need God, I need to please Him.

Sometimes, when I hear some pastors, they act like God flip flops.  He does not.  When it comes to grace, and the law, they think that is it, but all Christ did, was save us from the law of sin and death.  Not His law!  Not His commandments!  They still stand.  Whats wrong with us, if we cannot see that?  We would be deceived.

So friends, keeping a humble repentance before Christ. This is healthy, and yes God will extend grace, but we have to be aware.  We have to be sorry, we cannot compromise.  And I even say this a few days before Halloween, because many Christians think it is o.k. to celebrate this evil holiday, and it stems from hell.  The bottom line is it does not honor God.  Don’t compromise your blessings, or your place with God, or even the fear of God, to play in this spiritual realm.  Fearing God keeps us out of trouble.  

I hope this makes you and me both think.  How precious our salvation is.  Christ gave His life, and He suffered so greatly for our sins.  How can we not look at the cross, and see what He did, and openly compromise what He did.  Oh God forgive us, and God forbid.  Please friends, take this to heart.

Much love, I share it, not wanting to hit anybody on the head, yet so mindful of what Christ did.  I am sorry, Lord, help me not to ever compromise.  Especially, because you gave your life, and paid the penalty for my sins.

BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM: AND HIS GRACE WHICH WAS BESTOWED UPON ME WAS NOT IN VAIN; BUT I LABOURED MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN THEY ALL:  YET NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS WITH ME.  I CORINTHIANS 15:10.

Just my thoughts….Elena Ramirez

I dedicate this to my friend Shirley Duran.  I love her in Christ, and pray truth will prevail.  Gods truth.

 

 

 

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

 

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

BREAKING GENERATIONAL CURSES IN HONOR OF FATHERS AND MOTHERS….


Maybe, I was born, just to write about this…because I see, the difference. And I serve God.  Generational curses.

Today, is my moms birthday, and tomorrow is Fathers day. And so I thought, I would write about the two most honorable people, I looked up to as a child. My mom and dad.

Sadly, I did not have the benefit, of having both of them, to raise me. They were divorced at an early age. And when I look at their lives in retrospect, sadly, I look at them both, as not meeting their full potential, in Christ. They were both Christians. But what was missing? What was broken?

In fact, my father, had prayed for me to be born. Mom, could not have children. I myself, am an answer to prayer. So, prayer, means a lot to me. And I serve God in it.  Blessing, God, and others, in love, is my goal….

So as I talk about my parents, I am careful to honor them.  For they did the best they could, for me.  They were good, honest, honorable people.  But their lives, when I look at it, does not reflect fruit, that was evident. Peace, prosperity, joy, health….There was always something missing, or broken. Love, was not always evident….

Anyway, one, never knows from one generation to the next, what was done. But I do know the word of God, says, that curses can be passed down. In a revelation from God, I heard him tell me to break the curses. By the blood of Jesus. And I spoke a prayer, binding those curses, and releasing, the blessings.

Here is a scripture that substantiates that generational curses can be passed down.

EXODUS 34:6-7
AND THE LORD PASSED BY BEFORE HIM, AND PROCLAIMED, THE LORD, THE LORD GOD, MERCIFUL AND GRACIOUS LONGSUFFERING, AND ABUNDANT IN GOODNESS AND TRUTH. KEEPING MERCY FOR THOUSANDS FORGIVING INIQUITY AND TRANSGRESSION AND SIN, AND THAT WILL BY NO MEANS CLEAR THE GUILTY; VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDRENS CHILDREN, AND UNTO THE THIRD AND TO THE FOURTH GENERATION.

Now, I know this is something, that will take a lot of prayer, contemplation, but I tell you in truth. I want to live a fulfilled life in Christ. Christ broke those curses for me, and for you, when He gave his life. I claim that for myself, for my family.

Perhaps, you are dealing, with issues, where you seem not to get an answer. This may be one of the most important things you have read. Generational curses, can be passed down. Seek God, for an answer. If you want to be free. Seek him, and obey him. Once and for all, make sure you clean the slate. Those curses can be broken, by the blood of Jesus. Don’t you want that for you and your family? A life fulfilled? God does not change, but we can change with Christ.

Just my thoughts….But thoughts, that may help someone. Please share this.

With love, Elena Ramirez

Father, thank you, for the revelation, you gave me, about generational curses.  Lord, I do plead the blood of Jesus, over me, and my blood line.  It was like a blood transfusion.  I had, recently, where we bound the curses, the generational curses, and by pleading, and releasing, the blood of Jesus, the blood of Christ, dominates, and is cleansing, and clearing out all curses.  Blessings are coming in….

Thank you, that generational curses are broken in my family.  I pray, for others, and Lord, help them.  If I can help them, I will, but Lord, may this “Just My Thoughts”  post, help them, and guide them, to seek you, to turn their life to you.  For by Christ we are truly saved.  Thank you Lord, I praise you, and exalt you, for all my blessings, and for my parents, who I honor as well.  Thank you Lord.  Thank you for the blood of Jesus.  Amen

THE PASSION OF CHRIST COMPELS ME


Yesterday, Palm Sunday, I took time, with my husband to see the movie, on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network).  Directed and produced, by Mel Gibson, The Passion of Christ.  This is about my third viewing of it.

Jim Caviezel, plays Jesus Christ.  And wow, what an anointing, he had to play such a poignant part.  I could see Christ, in him….and from my understanding, he had prayed that people would see Christ in him, and it did come through. For it touched ones heart.

And even though, I enjoy the movie, I have had my own personal vision of Christ’s crucifixion.  And, I thank God for revealing it to me in a personal way.  For it compelled me in the spirit, to want to live right.  In the sight, of Almighty God.

In any event, every time, I have seen it, I am moved with tears.  I am moved with emotion, and compassion, and yes such a great understanding, of what Christ did for us. Great was his sacrifice.

It does compel me, to want to live a better life.  Glad, that I have given my heart to Jesus Christ.  To recognize his love.  To call him savior.  To be obedient to God.  Almighty God, the giver of life.  To love him, in fear of him, for that is the beginning of wisdom.  Proverbs 1:7

To be aware, and to know there is a devil, there is evil, in this world.  And I want nothing to do with it.   Or with any of the antics of the devil.  I renounce him.  In little things, or even big things.  I submit to God.  I resist the devil and he flees.  I understand, in my journey with Christ, that truly, He is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6

To not see that, totally, and to not give all that I can, is a waste of life…. My life.  Yet, we can hold ourselves back.  Or we can miss meeting our potential.  We can even miss Salvation, a gift from God, because we are ignorant, or disobedient.  And what a travesty that would be.  Unless someone opens their eyes.  Maybe thats why I write this, because the passion of Christ, compels me.

I have come to a place, in my walk with the Lord.  That my faith is very evident to me.  For Christ is very, real to me.  More so, then myself.  If that makes sense.  Because I know who He is.  I know what He stands for.  But, I don’t always know who I am.  But I am learning, by the word of God, praying, and just gut instinct, spiritual holy ghost instinct, that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Phillipians 4:13.

And I am learning, by stepping out.  By getting out of my comfort zone.  By being bold.  By speaking a word, and silencing the devil, when I hear his ugly voice.   By learning, how, daily to submit to God.  I am learning.  And I have made so many mistakes.  But, I do not, I refuse, to give up on God.  No matter what happens.  I am determined, to live for Christ, because He died for me, and showed me, that he on that third day, had the keys from hell.  So, I could live abundantly.  To show me, I did not have to be a part of the curse, because He took the curse for me.  Thats why when I see, the Passion of Christ.  I am compelled.  Great was his sacrifice.  And I never want to take it for granted.

I know, that His love, is so great, He was obedient, denied himself, and went to the cross for each one of us.  Gods love was so great, he sent Christ for us.  John 3:16.  That if we just believe, we will be saved.  We will not perish.

Yet, I know, in that human state, that He was in, He felt, all the things, that you and I do.  Physically, and spiritually, for I believe, He was also afraid, and that was evident, when He prayed in the garden, and He said.  Lord, if it be your will, remove this burden from me.  Matthew 26:39  And He went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed saying, Oh my Father if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Christ, understands us.  More then anyone.  He knows what we are faced with, challenged with….

He understands, what it is like to be tempted.  For the devil, tried to tempt him.  But Christ knew the power of the word, and He said, “It is written!”  Gods word is written, and there is power in the word.  It is alive.  And every promise, from God, is there, if we just reach to that word, take it, claim it, meditate on it, share it, speak it, and use it, to defend ourselves.  From a devil, who wants to always tempt us.  Matthew 4:10-11  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, satan:  for it is written, thou shalt worship, the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.  Then the devil leaveth him, and behold, angels came and ministered unto him.  

So, knowing what Christ did compels me even more, to know what Gods word says.  It is the final word.  I do not question it, nor do I debate it, or challenge it.  Or reason about it.  I understand, Gods ways, are not my ways.  And that settles it in my heart.

Christ could have avoided his own crucifixion, But He loved us, and that is settled in my heart.  He knew, and I know, because of his Love, that He is the Messiah.  He knew, he had to obey, and fulfill the call of God, for great is the love of God.    And even as they took him out of the garden, He reasoned this.  Matthew 26:54  But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?  

It was prophesied in the Old Testament, of Isaiah, that by Christs stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  How many countless times, have I meditated on that word, knowing, Christ has healed me.  Physically, but yes more then anything spiritually.  Cleansing me of sins, generational, and even my own disobedience.  Sin is not worth losing, my place with God.

And when you see in the spirit, the great cost of Jesus’s sacrifice.  Sin should be an abomination to you as well.  You should abhor it in your spirit.  Never taking that sacrifice for granted.  Never treating your Salvation, shabby, or using it, to sin.  Thinking, your covered, when all you really are doing is using your salvation, to commit sin.  Thinking, its o.k to sin.  I am covered.  That is just an abuse of a gift from God.

And I feel compelled to write this.  Because, I see so many people, just saying they are saved, but they really do not express, or give testimony, to bear fruit, of the mercy of Christ in their lives.  Neither cold, nor hot, God will spit us out.  Revelation 3:15.  Is that what we want God to see in us? I pray God does not see that in me.   

But, I know, that I know, according to the word of God, that things are changing in the spirit realm.  And prophesy, will be fulfilled.  Christ, will return.  And are we ready?  Truly ready?  Are we doing, all that we can for Christ.  Knowing how his great sacrifice was?  Are we hiding our lights, under a bushel?

Are we witholding truth from ourselves, because we are too lazy, to open the word of God?  And asking God for understanding, to know what His word means?  There are many mysteries to God, but he set it up, that we would seek him.  That we would call on His name, that we would learn principles, to live a better life.  For ourselves, and for others.  To be blessed, so we can be a blessing.

The Passion of Christ compels me.  To reach out, even in my writing, but to be an extension of love.  To obey God.  To do all I can for His Kingdom, so others can know, the truth, that really sets one free.  But then to grow.  To be renewed in the mind.  So that yes, you receive your salvation.  But then you continue on that journey knowing, what Christ did for you, but knowing, he did it, so you could reach your potential.  By the word of God.

Dear ones, does not the passion of Christ compel you as well?  It is time, to grow, out of our baby ways, and grow to be the army of God, the people of God, the teachers of God, the inspiration of God, that He has called us all to be.  Each one of us has a gift, whatever it may be.  Please, for the sake of Christ, and His sacrifice.  Be moved, with compassion, as He was, and be compelled.  For the Passion of Christ.  Today, is the day of Salvation.  Be a light, be a testimony, be bold.  Be with God, with your armor  on.  Quenching the fiery darts of the enemy.  Ephesians 6:11

Today accept what Christ did for you, believe, repent, and then grow, be renewed in your mind. (see the link of Salvation below)

And let the Passion of Christ compel you.

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, and Praise you for my Salvation.  I thank you for what Christ did for each one of us.  Lord, I do feel compelled, to just reach out, to others, to inspire, to speak truth, to shout out,  “Look what the Lord has done for me.”  For you have done great things in my life.  And daily, my walk grows with you.  Daily, my relationship grows, where I see the potential, of who I can be.  Yes, I know, that I know who Christ is, and that does help me to see, who I really can be in you.  Lord, help us, take the blinders off of our eyes, to see our potential.  To neither be cold nor lukewarm, but to be someone who is in the spirit of Christ.  Compelled, to be the best, we can be, because of Christ, and His sacrifice.  Lord, thank you, and just help us to be a light, that shines for you.  Help us to be used by you, to bring the lost to your throne.  To avoid, for eternity, the curse of hell.  Thank you Jesus, for your sacrifice.  It compels me, to serve you, and Father God, by the holy spirit, with Love.  Thank you.  For my salvation….In Jesus name.  Amen

A LOVE FOR GOD’S TRUTH


I love truth, Gods truth. It has protected me, and guided me, since I was a small child.  I am still his child.  I just know His truth now.

In this photo are three doors.  This photo is at St. Elizabeths Catholic Church.  Denver, Colorado.  When I was a little girl, I made my first Holy Communion there.  But not long after that, I ran away from home.  It was night, me and my mother had an argument.  I don’t even remember why.  But I ran away, and went straight to that church.  And for about an hour, I stood, there at the far left door, hiding, and crying, searching for understanding.  I was broken.  I was sad. I felt refuge there.  I prayed to God, even as a child.  I felt him, and his protection, his love.  It was night time, and I was very vulnerable.  Being alone at night, and not in the greatest of neighborhoods.  But God took care of me, and takes care of me.

How good He is to me, when I look back in retrospect.   The many times, He has protected me, loved me, guided me, counseled me, healed me, blessed me.  This is a truth, of this small testimony. So, I honor his truth.

Then I went home.  I wanted love.  I wanted to feel strong.  But I needed truth…..

But I did not know truth, like I know it now.  I don’t blame religion, for me, not knowing truth, for a long time.  But religion can be blamed, for making its own rules, turning from Gods truth….And religion, will be held in judgment, for not bringing truth.

But I blame myself, for not searching for the truth, in Gods word.  We always had a Bible.  But did we open it up?  No.  Not like we should have.  Just once in a while, does not make it.  But when you see things are not working in your life, like I did, you may see yourself as me, and will heed this truth.  Because without God, and his truth, we are lost.

Since, I am writing, here, sharing, I have to say this, as well….  Because truth is not always honored. Truth is not always accepted, and received, with love.  Truth is not always wanted.  Some truth can hurt someone.

I am not into using truth, to hurt people.  Because that is a characteristic of the devil.  He will take truth, and become an accuser of the brethern.  Revelations 12:10. He will use it to hurt people with their sins, or with their pain, and say it is all in the truth.  Love covers a multitude of sins.  And when I hear someone saying someone said something, and it is truth.  It makes me, think, why would use that truth, if they loved someone?  If they truly want to be used by God.

Now when it comes to the truth of God.  I will not hide it.  I will not compromise it.  I will not dilute it.  I will not argue with it.  I will not try and twist it, leaving a word out here and there.  Nor will I try to undermine it.  In fact, I shout it out, because I know, what Gods truth, has done for me.  It has changed me, rearranged me, and showed me the path, I need to take in life.  But it angers me, when people, want me to shut up, because I know the truth.  And I am talking about my recent discovery of discrepancies between the King James Bible, and the NIV Bible.  (read my post The conspiracy between the King James bible, and the NIV Bible, scriptures deleted, compromised, changed, Is your Bible Holy?)

And these may be Christian brothers and sisters, who will not stand up with me, in truth.  For from their perspective, they live….“With a live, and let live mentality.” I am not against living, or taking away your choice.  But I know, that I know, Gods truth sets people free.  And I see, that so many may know the truth, but they do not share it.  For whatever reason, they hide it.  They do not tell others.  The beauty of truth, is, that when you know it, you can make the right decision.

Gods word, is truth, and when we see ourselves, in light of a Holy word, Gods word, Gods truth, we can make adjustments.  We have a choice.  But to stay, in the darkness, when we know Gods truth, is really sad, because there could be so much more to life.

In Gods truth.  I think a lot of it, is just plain laziness on peoples part, when it comes to searching for truth.  Gods truth.  And this is not toward any one in particular.  Or in judgment.  I just say this, because I used to be the same way.  But not any more, I discipline myself, to find Gods word, Morning, and night, and in-between, if I have opportunity, I am in the word of God, searching.  And wanting to share this beautiful explanation, from Gods perspective, so I can live better, so I can have a weapon against the enemy, even from myself, being my own worst enemy.  I want to change, and grow, and live, according to Gods plan.

But I also love Gods truth, for you.  For you to be motivated, inspired, and to give hope, so you can see the truth, and share it with someone else, as well.

It is hard to understand, why people are so cynical, and so angry, at a God, who loves us.  Some are so desperate.  For any need, they may have.  But if they did things His way, they would see change, they would see, joy, needs would be met.  And how else can you find the way, but by Jesus Christ. For He is the way, the truth and the Life.  John 14:6

Our nation, was built, on the foundation of God.  But it is sad, that this nation, does not embrace, the truths of God like it used to.  And I cannot help, and see, we are headed in a wrong direction.  Judgement is coming.  I just sense it, according to Gods word.  This is truth.  And even here, I ask, knowing Gods truth, where do you want to spend eternity?  In hell, or heaven?

Wake up, quit hiding the truth, and find it.  So you can get back on the right path again.  For life abundantly.  Christ came to give life, and life abundantly.  The enemy, comes to kill, steal and destroy.  This is truth.

And if I can speak truth, in love, thats maturity.  I do not want to judge people, or hit them with the Bible.  That is not my place, and I always have to be careful in matters like this.  But, I hate to see people, not get it, because they hide it.  Or because they get lazy.  Or because they are so preoccupied, with this, that, and the other, when if they would only seek God, truly, and his truth.  They would have a love, for the truth.    They would have an answer to life.  They would also be an answer to life.  Because God would use them to bring truth to others.  Because God brings truth, to help us.

I will just conclude, that we need to find and search for God, and his truth, more than ever.  We need to speak truth, we have to quit hiding it, and we need to get strength from God, to give it, and get it.  Because the way things are now, according to the word, we are going to need Gods truth, more the ever.  Don’t miss out, because you did not recognize truth.  Love Gods truth…

Just my Thoughts…..Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you for your word, for your truth.  I pray, others, would see this.  I pray others would have a love for  your Holy truth, that sets one free. To know, Jesus, is the way, the truth and the life.  Your word is truth.  It is life.  My goal, is bring your truth, so I defend it.   In Jesus name.  Amen

Brethern if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him:  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 5:19-20

THE GOAL AS A CHRISTIAN


SO WE MAKE IT OUR GOAL TO PLEASE HIM, WHETHER WE ARE AT HOME IN THE BODY OR AWAY FROM IT.  II CORINTHIANS 5:9  NIV

Please note, this is not a King James scripture.  I wrote this, before I learned of the discrepancies from other Bibles.  But my goal is still to please God.  Even though the KJV says this in different words, this may be one of few that I agree with the content.  But I want to make it clear in truth.

This scripture stood out to me, in such simple words, our goal is to please God. As Christians, this is what we should strive to do.  Are you trying to do that?  I am.  I recognize what Christ has done for me, and I so want to please him.  Not much is said about this, because people when referring to try to please God, sometimes, will use Ephesians 2:9 as an example,  NOT BY WORKS, SO THAT NO ONE CAN BOAST.  By confusing, works, with trying to please God.

Listen, and look, this is totally different.  Our works, cannot get us into the Kingdom of God, so it is correct, that we should recognize, that this is a gift, God has given grace, in accomplishing this.  Ephesians 2:8…..

But we should strive, to want to please God, making this our goal.  And even if our works, are part of the goal, in pleasing God, we should do so with a cheerful heart, a grateful heart, knowing, we have a great inheritance, because of Christ, and his sacrifice.  Knowing that by his stripes we are healed.  Knowing that he gave his life so that we could have life abundantly, on earth and in heaven.  Wanting to serve, God, and others.  Being obedient, to his word, and commandments.  Loving one another.  The greatest commandment, to love God, and then to love others.  He did the hard part, but we still have our responsibility.  Christianity, means you follow and obey the one, who gives life, because he gave his life.  For you.  It is just natural to want to please the one, who has done such a great sacrifice for you.

So, I make mention of this, to please God, because that scripture, not by works, so that no one can boast, has been taken out of context, and has been actually used by some, to interpret, they don’t have to do anything. They don’t have to do any “work” which is really a cop out, to who we are in Christ.  Thats why knowing what Gods word says, ourselves, clarifies this.  For I have heard from the puplit, just an emphasis on that, and people get lazy.  They think they do not have to do anything, and thats the furthest, thing from Christ and all that he did.  How can not doing any works, in his name please him?  You can’t please him that way.  You have to do the things he has called you to do in his name, and that is by some “works.”  Yet some distort this….

Did you know, trying to know God, trying to know what pleases him comes from reading the Bible? Those truths will stick to you, and you won’t be confused.  You will though, be able to understand what pleases God.  And its not by works….its by his love.  But you have to try making pleasing him, as your goal.

When Christ has come into our hearts, and we truly recognize, what he has done for us, and saved us from our sins, and that our names, are written in the Book of Life, we want to please God.  Thats our goal.  For there will be a time, when we will be out of our bodies.  So, the goal NOW, is to try and please him, so that when we are out of our bodies, we will see, and know, making the goal to please him, was the right choice.  Christ told us that our great commission is to go out into the world, and to be a light, that shines, for him, making disciples, telling them to obey Gods word.  Matthew 28:19.  We must have a right balance, in our works, and in what we do, to please him.

Your works won’t get you into heaven he did that for you.  But you have your responsibility, and work set out for you as well as a Christian.  So, never, ever think,  you have nothing to do as a Christian.  Keep the goal of pleasing God, as your incentive.  His sacrifice, was too great.  Not to so, would be an insult.  Let us strive to please our dear Lord.  Let this be our goal.

Just my Thoughts, and in his love….Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I thank you for your plan, that you loved the world, and myself, so much that you sent Christ, to take away the sins of the world to be a sacrifice.  But I realize, I have my part.  And I know my works, will not get me into heaven.  But I so want to please you, and I know there are times, when I need to serve you and others.  Help me, help us, to have the right attitude.  To not get lazy, to not get complacent,  in who we are in Christ.  Lord, help us to know what your word says.  Give us a hunger and a thirst for your word, to understand what pleases you.  Lord, I see, and I have seen this in myself, so I do not condemn anyone.  But we do take things for granted, and then we think we have nothing to do.  But you want us to know your truth, you want us to obey, and you want us never, ever to take Christs sacrifice for granted.  Yes, we do have work to do.  But only you deserve all the glory, and honor, and praise.  Oh Lord, how I pray, to please you.  Let this be my goal, in everything, I do.  In Jesus name, Amen
