Wow, not an easy, feel good, soft and fuzzy title. But I write them as the Lord gives them to me.
So why is the Lord using me, to write about something so strong? That one could take offense to it. Or it could open someones eyes. Just the word “whore”, is vulgar, if you think about it.
But it is biblical to talk about. And this applies to men and women. And even in other situations, besides adultery. So here goes…
I WILL DO THESE THINGS UNTO THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST GONE A WHORING AFTER THE HEATHEN AND BECAUSE THOU ART POLLUTED WITH THEIR IDOLS. EZEKIEL 23:30 KING JAMES.
LEST THOU MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND, AND THEY GO A WHORING AFTER THEIR GODS, AND DO SACRIFICE UNTO THEIR GODS, AND ONE CALL THEE, AND THOU EAT OF HIS SACRIFICE. EXODUS 34:15. KING JAMES.
AND THE SOUL THAT TURNETH AFTER SUCH AS HAVE FAMILIAR SPIRITS, AND AFTER WIZARDS, TO GO A WHORING AFTER THEM, I WILL EVEN SET MY FACE AGAINST THAT SOUL, AND WILL CUT HIM OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE. LEVITICUS 20:6. KING JAMES
So, one has to recognize it is a spirit. And before it even manifests itself though, it can be taken to the cross, in repentance. Before anything happens. And I guess, thats what I want to warn you about. I want you to recognize it, before, so you can avoid it. So you can rebuke the whoring, adulterous spirit. But only in the name of Jesus, can you find the power to do that.
I don’t want to judge anybody. I have taken my own sins, to the cross, and prayed for forgiveness. And even now, when I think about some of my own stupid sins, I still repent.
But, I do feel an obligation to write this, because there is a whorish, adulterous spirit, that can even come on the best, intending Christians. Let alone, someone, who is naive, and does not know Gods truth.
Sin, its meant to kill, steal, destroy. Its meant to stop your blessings. Its meant to steal the promises from God from you.
Because if one sins, and does not repent, the enemy, has a “legal” right to harass you. To steal your salvation. To deceive you.
I see messages, sometimes, that state grace, will make a way, when there is sin. But they do not add, that inbetween, sin, and grace, there has to be repentance. I don’t see it taught. Maybe it is.
Anyway, we live in a very adulterous world. Women, and men, showing their bodies, with no modesty, and what does this teach women, and men? What does it teach our young girls? Where is the outcry to say, cover yourselves up….don’t give it all away. Leave the mystery. But our society does not teach these things. Just turn your television on, and you see it.
Respect yourself. Because if you don’t the devil certainly will not.
And seldom, heard, do I hear it from the body of Christ, and Christian leaders.
Temptation comes….and when you most try to avoid it. It will try anyway. But God says if we are obedient to him, he will not allow a temptation.
THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN; BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE: BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT. I Corinthians 10:13 King James only.
Remember Joseph, he ran, when the Pharoahs wife tried to seduce him.
We should run from sin. We should teach our daughters and sons, the benefits of staying away from sin. Including sexually transmitted diseases.
Now, just a clue here, but because we all want to be beautiful, smart, and blessed. But what do we use our beauty for? Is it to attract a mate? Is it to show you are better then someone?
Everything our society seems to point out is the beauty someone has? But in doing so, they are losing something. Its innocence. Its modesty, its self-respect.
Sometimes when I watch television programs where hollywood, or the music community has award shows. I look at the womens clothing, and I think, golly, girl, put some clothes on. You can catch a cold. To say the least…..
You know what it brings, but a whorish, adulterous spirit. That leads to sin.
People do not talk about sin hardly any more. Maybe because we all do sin, according to scripture. We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.
But, when you repent, and give your heart to God, you should make sure, you stay away from sin. So you have to understand the spirits…whether of God, or the devil.
Because you want your robes of righteousness, clean, when you stand before God.
That is your responsibility too. We do not have an excuse to sin, when we accept Christ. We don’t.
I just feel like I am talking to someone, who needs to see this. You are so tempted right now. You want to indulge in a whorish, adulterous spirit, and release yourself to someone. Someone, who may even say they love you. But if they loved you, they would marry you. They would make it right before God. By honoring you. It would not be adulterous.
Maybe you have an adulterous sin, just repent. Ask God to cleanse you of your sins. Turn from whoring ways. But see it, before it is too late.
If you do not honor yourself, no one else will. You have to see that.
But what you don’t see, is that the devil, is trying to take your blessings, your future, your hopes, even your health away.
Repent for the thought, the desire, the longing, that holds you captive and just turn back to God.
Turn back, don’t go down that road. It leads straight to hell. So rebuke that whorish adulterous spirit. Rebuke it, and get right with God. Because it leads to other sins as well.
Rebuke it, in Jesus name. So your own true love can be revealed to God, and others.
KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATORS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND. NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD. I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 KING JAMES.
Blessings, and love, in Christ,

Blessings, Elena Ramirez
I want to share some thoughts, here about temptation…..Some of my experiences, some things, I have learned. Yes, even some of the hard lessons, I have learned, the hard way, concerning temptation. And gladly, I can say, the victories, from being delivered from temptation….
Temptation, comes from the devil himself. The thing with temptation though, in its deception, it sometimes, brings new hope. An excitement.
It can inspire someone, for a change. It stimulates, the senses. One may be anticipating the pleasure of temptation. But it will turn around, and bite you like a snake, if you submit to it.
So, it can excite someone, and with an illusion, that is false, in that temptation, it brings hope. I use the word hope here, for lack, of a better word, for now, but it is hope, that will bring the fruit of evil, death, and destruction. Because the focus, of the temptation, is to destroy, and when people are bored, they are easy prey for temptation. So they hope….believing the lie.
Temptation is an anticipation, that stimulates, the senses, the flesh. But goes totally against Gods plan, and protection for us. It brings spiritual darkness. Because it is meant to lie. It is meant to trap someone. It is meant, to take someone away, from God, and His plan, for that person.
Temptation, is not your friend, it is your enemy. But one has to recognize this. You have to know, the difference, or you will fall victim, to the trappings of the devil.
And when it is there, it gives an illusion, of a change, that may be pleasurable, but again, it is from the devil, and is meant to destroy. YOU, AND EVEN YOUR LOVED ONES! I don’t think, anyone wants that.
Unless, one is close to God, they will not see the deceptiveness, of the temptation, and will fall right into the trap. I have noticed, when temptation, has been in my own life, it has preyed, right into characteristics, that I have not developed, with God.
For example, vanity. When you are young, one wants to be appreciated, for who they are. Whether, its your looks. etc. And so when one, is not confident, within, they grasp, for compliments. They grasp, for attention. Attention, needed, searching for gratification, fulfillment, by anyone, can be a temptation. Because one is looking to people, or things, or anything, to fulfill that need. That really, only God can fulfill.
I say that, because temptation, and vanity, was quite evident, in my youth. And well, I won’t say too much more about it, but, in being so insecure, as a woman, etc. I know, how it can make someone, see, that they “think” they can have power, by the illusion, of even tempting others, with their looks etc.
Society grooms, us all, by the media, by magazines, that beauty, brings power, etc. It is an illusion, so women, and men, fall prey, to searching for love, or whatever, but not going skin deep, to the true spirit, but by what they see. An illusion. Don’t just judge a book by its cover. Or be tempted, by the cover….
See whats behind that pretty, or beautiful face. Because some will use their looks to trap you. Thats their goal, and frankly, the goal of the devil. So there, they are, being a pawn, in the enemies hands, hurting themselves, and hurting others, by the illusion, of the power. By the deceptiveness, of using themselves, to attract someone. By their own merit, by their own looks, etc. As a tool, for power. It is temptation.
Gods word, says, that if we search for Him, He will make a way, to be delivered from the temptation. And I have found this to be true. I Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able, but will with the temptation also make a way, to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Do you see that part, where it says, “who will not suffer you.” Well, if one is deep into the temptation, and fighting it on their own merit, it actually hurts. Emotionally, and yes, even physically. It is a struggle, that goes against your peace of mind. That is intended, to torment you. To make you suffer.
When God is in a persons life, he will guard you, with his peace. And really, having peace, with God, and oneself, is not only comforting, but the guilt is not there.
In the temptation, it could be an illusion of love, say for example. Say, a married man, is “tempted” to have an adulterous affair. He knows it is wrong, but he is fighting it, in his own merit. His own self-control. That hurts him. Because he is struggling. He is trying to fight a fight by himself.
But if God is in the plan, of deliverance, for not being tempted, or getting into temptation, it will not hurt. God will make a way. And I will just say this, remember the vows, you have taken with the person, you have married, or the vows, the person, has taken, you are tempted with. Remember this, whether the marriage, is not going well. God can change that, if you do not submit to the temptation.
God will take that person, out of the path, of that person, so the temptation, will not conquer that person, with evil. Yes, I did say, conquer, because people, do not realize, this is the plan, again, of the enemy.
Remember, Joseph, from the Bible? He was a servant, in Pharoahs house, and his wife, wanted to have an adulterous, affair, with him. Joseph, knew it was wrong, and he was close to God, so what did he do? He ran, he ran away from her. She still lied, though, and because she had snatched his covering cloth, she said, he had tried, to have his way with her. See, how the devil, turned that around still?
People, have no idea, what kind of traps, they set for themselves, when following temptation. But, like Joseph, we have to run, from temptation, and run to God. God did use that, situation, though, to bless Joseph, and to bless the nation of Israel……
I just want to bring it to your attention, more then ever, how important it is for us, to seek God. To be careful of the traps of temptation. Prayer, daily prayer, keeps us close to God, and even finding ourselves, making our own decisions, without prayer, can lead us into temptation. And one may not see it, yet make a grievous mistake. So, we do have to be EXTREMELY careful, in this matter.
I have heard so many testimonies, of peoples downfall, because of temptations. People getting sexual diseases, because of temptation. Losing the love, of their life. Not being content, with the mate, God has given them. People, losing jobs, and their freedom, because they reached out, and took, something, that did not belong to them, because the temptation was there. And ending up, in jail. Falling into drug use, and even yes, suicide. Thats the devils plan, he comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Temptation will do that.
And so much more, for temptation, is the forum, the devil, uses, and wants you to do, making your situation, wrong. The excitement, again may be there, the stimulation, etc. But, if you do, you will bring more then the temptation, you may very well bring curses, into your life.
Dear one, bring, it to the obedience of Christ.
II Corinthians 10:4-6
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself (temptations) against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. And having in a readiness, to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
For your future, for your own peace of mind. For your family, for your future blessings. Stay away, from temptation. Only God, can deliver you from the temptation. Believe me, I know.
God has delivered me from temptation. From time to time. And I am very grateful, to Him, for that as well. I don’t have to live with the guilt of some sins. That I could have fallen into, after accepting Christ. I don’t have to live with a memory, that would haunt me, here and there, of some temptations. And I am still, watchful, to be aware of it. Temptation, comes from the devil himself. And I want nothing to do with the devil. Nothing. The benefits, God gives me, outweighs any temptation. So grateful, I am aware of curses, temptation brings. No thank you, get out of my way satan. For my Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.
And as I conclude, my message on “temptation” dear one, I don’t know you, or your situation. Why you may have done, what you have done, or why, you are in the position in temptation. Maybe, you have already given in to a temptation. But there is a solution. His name is Jesus Christ. Go to Him. Bow before him, humble, knowing you have sinned. Go to Him, and repent. Let his blood from the cross cleanse you. Let him comfort you, and show you a better life. And more then anything you will know, you have a place with him, for eternity.
We all have sinned, we all come short of His glory, but let us be the more wiser, let us stay away from temptation. Let us learn from our mistakes. And even the mistakes from others. The Bible, gives us so many examples to learn from. So, we do not make the mistake. Let us remember, what Christ did on the cross for each one of us.
Just my Thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez
Father, I thank you, for the deliverance of temptations, that you give, to us, your children, if we are mindful, to submit to you. Your word says, submit to God, resist, the devil, and he will flee. The key, is to submit to you. To give no place to your enemy. To know your will, to know, what is right and wrong in your sight. To be aware, to be sober, and vigilant, so the enemy who is watching, to devour, will not have a way. Lord, I just thank you, for the times, you have delivered me from temptation. I hope, never to go through anything, that tries to take me away from you. By my own consciousness, here, I know, how sin, destroys. How it kills, how it takes people, away from the plan you have for them. Lord, I just write this, mindful, how important, it is to be aware, of the enemies plans. We cannot just live, anyway we want. Taking what we want, not honoring one another, or situations, where the enemy, is setting traps. In temptation. We have to be mindful of this. So much so, not only because of our eternal future, but that which we have on this earth. Lord, I wish, when younger, I had not submitted to temptations. But you are the Lord, who can restore, even now. Lord, God, Father, thank you for giving me, and the reader wisdom, in this. To be careful, not to get caught up in temptations. You will make a way, for you are the way, the truth, and life. In Jesus name. Amen

I ask this question, because I see some women do this. There is “A” spirit, I have detected, where, women, put down, criticize, demean, and give no credit, to their men, but harm them, by emasculating them. To be perfectly clear, here, I want to show you the definition. Because I have seen, and heard, women who do this.
emasculated) deprive (a man) of his male role or identity : he feels emasculated because he cannot control his sons’ behavior.• archaic castrate (a man or male animal).• Botany remove the anthers from a flower
Many women, do this, because perhaps, they did not have a male role model, in their home, growing up. Or they don’t feel, like their man, meets the potential, as the leader of the home etc. Maybe you make more money, then your husband, so you feel entitled, to be the boss.
But when any woman does that, they take on the role, of the man, and they “wear the pants” so to speak. Its wrong…
Women, may have learned this from their own mothers, by example. Or they just took the reins, in authority. Whatever the case may be, there is a right and wrong way, to have order, and peace, and love, in a household. And that is NOT the right way.
Some men, may not have had a strong, male role model, when they were growing, up. So they relinquish their authority, and they let the woman, take the role.
God only knows if this contributes, to not having a strong sense of their male sexuality, as well. For men and women. Because so many people, now a days, are confused, as to what their role is. Male and female. etc. And I won’t get into all that, or even debate it, because I am not sure what causes that, besides sin, and because I have always accepted my role, as a female.
I have accepted, what God made me. A woman……I know my role, as a woman of God, and as his wife. And my man, knows who he is, and who he is as the man, of the house. His duties, prove that to me. By his sense of responsibility. As the protecter, the provider, and as a man of God. And just his strength….
Sure we talk things out, he includes me. but neither one of us, use our marriage, or our authority, in anything, to put each other down. We protect each others feelings with each other, and around each other, for each others sake.
So, if you want a healthy marriage, and relationship, with the man you love. Its time, to give back the authority to your man, and that is by, beginning to stop, putting him down, and criticizing him. To be aware of this in public, as well. In front, of friends, and family. Strangers….
Being aware of this. Be aware of your hurtful words. Aware, that you are out of line….out of order. And just make the decision to stop it. Perhaps, go to your man, confess, your fault in this, and make an attempt, to change.
Pray. Pray to God, and ask Him, for guidance. Read your Bible.
Sure, you may know your man, better then anyone. He may have made many mistakes, and still, may be lacking or failing you, in his responsibilities. etc. But making your man, feel, low, is not the solution, to the problem.
A good woman, builds up her man. She knows who she is in Christ, and the things they do together, in Christ, will be blessed. The foundation, starts with Christ. As the head, of the household. Then it is by that order, placed on the man. And the word, tells us to be submissive to our husbands.
Now this does not mean, that the man, uses any kind of authority, to put her down, or demean her as well. In fact, a man is to love his woman, as his own flesh.
And, there has to be a healthy balance, in sharing, responsibilities, and yes, authority. If a woman, takes that lead, and begins using any authority, she is hurting her man greatly.
I have seen this on television, as a joke, and in other conversations, where women, relate to their men, and just being a witness, to this in public. Women, putting their men down. Talking down to them, making them feel inferior. This is so wrong. Women’s liberation, in this, has hurt women, and their relationships.
Look, we all make mistakes, in relationships, and sometimes, we as women, feel like we have to hold our ground. But if you do it, at the expense of hurting your man, your hurting yourself as well.
God did not create woman first, He created man first.
And truthfully, she was the one, who first listened to the devil, and made the mistake, that caused Adam to sin. How healthy would it have been, if Adam, had stopped her, and said, lets go to God. And ask, God. Mankind would have been saved the curse of sin. But he did not.
And together, they were punished, for the sin, of disobedience. “Together, divided, you won’t stand. United, together with God, as the foundation, you will stand together.” But you can’t keep chipping away, at your husband, or the foundation of you both, and your marriage, your love, your family, will fall. Your children, will learn the wrong way, to a relationship. Because they are greatly influenced. If you keep putting him down. You need to see this.
And if you are not seeing your man, take the lead, as a spiritual leader, in the household, keep on being who you are in Christ, and you may “gently” nudge him, but keep on praying, keep on being a woman of Christ, virtuous, and like the Bible, says, he will change, by your example, and your household will be saved. I Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; else were your children unclean, but now are they holy.
That is Gods promise. And with that, being a woman of God, “consistent.” But don’t put him down. Dont!
Look we know how to influence our men, and you know what I am talking about, in the sense, that whatever we do as women, should be done in love, kindness, and we can influence our men to make good decisions, and to be the role model, and leader of our families. Christ is that foundation.
But if we take it upon ourselves, to put the cart before the horse, we will just mess things up. Thats another reason, why I advocate, holiness, and abstinence, before marriage. You need to make the lump holy, by Christ.
I have learned through the years, in my own marriage, there is a right way, and a wrong way, to approach your man.
A true, man, also knows who he is, and will not let you, run over him, or put him down. He demands respect. But a smart woman, knows this any way, and does not test, the waters. I have no idea, how much this could even affect, women, to avoid, marital problems, or abuse, for that matter. Because I learned this early in my marriage. But the mistakes I made, in the beginning, was due, to me, getting out of order.
It takes time, and it takes love. But, after almost 25 years, we both learned. And there are things, we both do, to honor each other. I just believe, if you take this to heart, you take it to God, and you as a woman, stop emasculating your man. You will let love, Gods love, have its way.
Women, do you emasculate, or put your man down? Its time, to see, this, and stop, the damage. Bind that spirit, of discord, of confusion, that spirit of control, that changes the role in your relationship and marriage, and give it to God, to change. Release Gods ways, and Holy spirit, correction and love.
And let love, Gods love do a new thing. “THE” Spirit of God. You will see the difference, I know.
Just my thoughts, with love. Elena Ramirez
Father, I pray you would be honored, and glorified, in all I do. In my relationship, with my husband. You have taught me, the difference. So, with love, I pray, for others, who may have this problem. I thank you for teaching us through the Holy spirit, the etiquette, so to speak, in relationships, in holiness, in matrimony, in honoring one another. In not putting down our men. Lord, help any woman, any couple in this who may identify with this as a problem. There is always a way with you, in Jesus name. Amen.
