PICKING APART JOYCE MEYERS THOUGHTS ON TATTOOS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3640.jpgPicking Apart Joyce Meyers Thoughts on Tattoos…
By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Joyce Meyer, is a prominent leader, in the world. Concerning matters of religion. As a Christian, that she claims to be, I find her thoughts, very disturbing.

I was once one of those who looked to her, as inspiration, because she found Christ. But if she found Him, her thoughts, show, she departed from Him. They show she has departed from His law, and they show she promotes hate, to others who do not agree with her. I base this on the following video:  And if by some chance it mysteriously disappears, look it up on youtube.  Joyce’s thoughts on tattoos.

I know she is well liked. I know, this may anger, or upset those that follow her, but I am to please God, not man, or any person, and so are you!

The King James scriptures tells us that there will be those, that are blind, and leading the blind. And this describes her exactly.

LET THEM ALONE; THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND. AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH. MATTHEW 15:14 KJV.

Joyce Meyer, starts her sermon, in this video, on the comparison between holiness, and legalism.

This is what Gods word, says about holiness. She does not use this scripture, but I will so you can see what the King James says about holiness.

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”
Isaiah 35:8 KJV

Her thought, right away, attacks religious people. Because they know having a tattoo is not accepted in the scriptures. She stereo types those that want to obey God. That know truth, that see the error of doing some things. And she calls it “legalism.”

She refers to Isaiah 44:5 and makes reference that its o.k. to have a tattoo, basically because God did it. Which is wrong, the scripture does not promote marking of the skin, it talks about just writing. Subscribing.

She says that it says; That it is tattooed; “I belong to the Lord”. It does not say that. See it from a Holy King James bible. But this is what it says:

“One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.”
Isaiah 44:5 KJV

It does not say tattoo, and she says it does. Please see this.

Again, she makes a reference, that God is promoting it, because He tattooed your name on his hand. The scripture does not say that. It says “graven” How can anybody compare how God writes?

BEHOLD I HAVE GRAVEN THEE UPON THE PALMS OF MY HANDS; THY WALLS ARE CONTINUALLY BEFORE ME.  ISAIAH 49:16  KJV.  

And to mock, what it says from one scripture to the next, is very dangerous. When she gives an example of God putting earrings, on one, group, but getting angry with the next. Where is the fear of God? To see, His ways are not our ways. She is judging God Himself, in His motives.

Leviticus 20:28 is a reference she gives, its not there. That scripture does not exist in my King James bible. Check. Look it up, listen to the video very carefully. Its not there as a point of reference. About making marks for the dead.  That she gives.

That scripture reference is not specific to tattoos, but Leviticus 19:28 is:

“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”
Leviticus 19:28 KJV

A tattoo is a mark on the flesh.

I think what bothers me so very, very much, is first of all she is not using a Holy Bible. As a teacher, as a so called pastor of the word of God, her word is corrupt. And I won’t debate it, but her scripture references, are from bibles, that have been changed. Corrupted. She uses references of scripture, but they are not from the King James. As she quotes scripture.  And if this does not show anybody, how wrong it is to use different bibles, then I don’t know what to say to you.

She admits, she picks what she wants, and leaves what she wants out of scripture. Listen to the video. She says it quickly but she admits she does that. And I am paraphrasing her, When she says: “we pick and choose what we want and leave out what we want.” Well she does, she leaves out truth, Gods truth.

She promotes getting a tattoo, and also promotes pushing “religious” people off the cliff. She states she is on the verge of getting a tattoo, and actually defying what Leviticus 19:28 states.

But to promote throwing people off of a cliff, and get it over with….That’s evil. That’s not love. To make religious demons mad? Who gave her that authority? It’s just wrong folks.

Does she not know her words are recorded in the book of life?  It is for all of us.  We will be judged.

The subliminal message, in there is to attack others, who do not think or believe like she does. And again, that is just pure evil. Christ told us, in John 13:34-35, that we would be known by the love we have for one another. This is what my King James bible says:

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
John 13:34-35 KJV

The whole motive of her subliminal message is to disobey God. To make herself the example to have pretty clothes, make up, and a tattoo.

In the King James scriptures it talks about vanity. And if she gets a tattoo, she is using herself for you to be disobedient in that. Because she is making herself even here in the video an example.

“And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.”
2 Kings 17:15 KJV

She talks about Laughing, well, the scripture says, it is better to be sorrowful. Then to have laughter. She talks about people and that they want to see you happy? Well, food for thought…What about what God wants? See, you need to see that, she totally disregards the incentive to try and please God. And that’s just wrong.

“Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.”
Ecclesiastes 7:3 KJV

Her whole message, really does not promote, drawing close to God. To repent. To obey God, and His laws. To see the error of ones ways. It actually is defiant. Prideful, to say one’s ways, are right, and there is a great danger to that. Because God is not mocked.

See we really cannot have joy, or peace, if we are wicked. Or more importantly as God has called us, to be in holiness.  There is no holiness, without Gods law.  Without obedience.  Without repentance.  And a changing of ways.

A true sense of soul searching, with repentance, a hunger for God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, to please Him, is the only one who can do that.

To even take her thoughts to heart, is so disturbing to me, because I have learned the hard way to get right with God, one needs to take His laws to heart.

Now the concept between religion, and relationship with Christ is this. Religion is rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, and groups. But if you are being legal, which God has given us His law, to follow, that is relationship. We can only have relationship with Christ, when we repent, obey God, and pray, and seek Him in that relationship. Pleasing God. Avoiding religion, well what she promotes, is Joyce Meyers religion.

I think what also bothers me, and that’s why I am writing about it, is basically she is promoting, dismissing the law, because it makes one act in legalism. And that’s like saying, I am right, you are wrong, to God Himself, and it’s a turn off to be obedient to God.

She challenges the “law” And that’s dangerous, these are Gods laws. He is legal. And holiness cannot be obtained, unless we follow Gods laws. So again, call me legal. Because I love His law. I see that it protects me. I see, that by trying, and yes I fail, but I see, that if I attempt to obey Him, He will extend grace. But you cannot disregard the law.

The thought, many Christians have is that the law, is abolished. That we are free from the law. God did not flip flop from the Old Testament, to the New Testament. He does not change. We do. The only law we are free from, is the law of sin and death. Not 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

There are many scriptures that attest to being legal with God. And that if we even keep Gods law, we are happy.

PROVERBS 29:18 King James
WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.

You know, I want to be happy in God’s law, so call me legalistic.

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:8 KJV)

He tells us, not to forsake His law. So that means if you want to please God, you get legalistic. Because He is the example to follow.

For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. (Proverbs 4:2 KJV)

The doctrine she teaches us, warns us according to King James scripture, is don’t follow people like that. I will not follow Joyce Meyers.  I follow Christ.  She is a terrible role model for Christ.  And one should never follow a person any way.

No matter what, they propose.  We are to follow Christ.  This is why you need to get the truth yourself.  Get a King James bible, and learn.  What Gods laws are, yourself.  Thats the only way you will grow.

And that is going to upset  some, here, but I state it because its wrong.

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 KJV)

I don’t judge anybody that might have a tattoo, I really don’t. I have met some very nice people who have tattoos, even family members. But if we really want to please God, we know what the scripture says.

We know, if we want to clean the slate, we repent. God won’t hold it against you, if you repent. But the direction she takes in this, is very self-serving. And that comes from hell itself. The devil was always about the devil. Self.

What she proposes… is that It is not humble, it is not remorseful, to know and admit, the error of one making a mistake, in even getting a tattoo. The scriptures, when they are truth, will bring light, to help us see the error of our ways. But I see nothing like that, from her message.

And its sad. I don’t judge her, but I am called to warn, even the righteous. Who think this is right.

Its not right folks, its wrong. And if you think I am judging. Read Ezekiel 33 from a King James it says we are to warn. I am warning here. I am loving my brothers and sisters in Christ, so they know the difference. Love warns. You would too, if you saw someone near the fire. The fire of hell itself.  If you knew the truth. Her thoughts are very disturbing.

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: (Proverbs 6:23 KJV

In conclusion, knowing, that the truth sets us and let the redeemed of the Lord say so. I have been redeemed, so I say so.

I may very well get challenged by some of you, who support her, love her, and you know what you need to do, is pray for her.  Arguing with me, will not resolve this.  I know what the Holy Scriptures says.

But I won’t debate or argue about this with anybody.  I will ignore comments on this.  I know that I just have to write this.  My motive is to please God.  And if it really helps someone to see the truth, then praise be to God.  I praise God anyway…

Thank you.

PSALMS 107:20 KING JAMES

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  

JOHN 8:32  KJV.  

AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.

Just ask yourself, with what I have shared, and what you can see, from the video yourself, why would anyone promote to you, that you disobey God?  Look at the fruit folks, this is how you will know them.  

Matthew 7:20  WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

Feel free to share this link you might just open someones eyes, to truth.

HEALING BY CHRIST AS 2017 ENDS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0566Healing, we can need spiritual healing, before physical healing can be manifested.   I truly believe, that if we work on our spirits, and ill feelings…. Well, physical healing, can be manifested, and come forward.  

Poisons, unforgiveness, sadness, can wear a person down physically.  To be blunt sin.  Sin, causes illness.  We need to avoid it as much as possible, and I truly believe we must constantly be seeking God.  For God is able.  And more then anything, God loves us.  He is mighty in power, and love.  I know it, and it seems He shows me this, more and more, for which I am grateful.

Sin separates us from God, but repentance clears the slate.  And a sense, to fear God, and obey Him.  

Our emotions, our feelings, our sense of hope, needs Jesus.   We need dear beautiful Jesus.  He who is holy.  He who is the Son of God, who teaches us, truths, and love, and understanding, for even the worse of us.  He who has compassion, and mercy, extends it, but we must understand, and learn, His ways.  

Its very sad, when we receive His love, and mercy, but do nothing with it, or we do not serve Him or others.  Or we get out of our love walk, by being offended.  Brutish, and hard.  

Worse of all when anybody denies Him, they become their own biggest enemy.  Its very sad.  For this is how demonic activity, is activated, that steals ones soul.  Steals the blessings, it steals the wisdom, the understanding.  It blinds one.  

And when Jesus is not a part of our lives, because of others, or because we have gotten cold, and indifferent, we are the ones to blame.  And its not to have compassion, when I write this, or to be judgmental, but we really are responsible for our relationship with Christ.  We have to be wise in these matters, according to what Gods Holy word says.  

We must continue to seek God.  We must do everything in our own power, to stir up, faith, and pursue God, through Christ with our entire being.  By praying, reading our King James bible, (which is Holy) and trying to obey God.  Speaking it to Him, and even to others, that this is a goal.  By being Love, for He is love. 

Why is it that some things, seem to come easier to others, is challenging.  But one must not compare themselves to others.  Though, you may obviously see the difference.  

But we are all responsible, for our own souls, and trying to help others, with anything we can, shows Gods love.  This is why I write this even here.  I want to help you.  I want to pray for you, if you feel led.  To ask me.

But even if you do not, ask me, you can go to His throne.  Just make sure you go there first clearing the slate….. 

You might not be able to write it down, like some can.  You might not be able, to talk, straight forward, and to do so, might make you uncomfortable.

But love never, ever fails, as the scripture says:  Love never fails.  Sad, how little things can pile up,  “how the Little foxes, can steal the vines.”  

I just want to encourage you, to have your faith stirred up.  God does see, and God is able to show you the way.  But focus on Him.  Repent.  Oh you might think, oh I have not done anything.  To repent about.  But did you know that is pride?  What about apologizing to someone else, who you have offended?  

You see, we all do sin, we all do come short of His glory, and well, the enemy looks for ways, to distract us, hurt us, and even deny God.  Even in our inner thoughts.  Don’t ever deny God, if you see that in yourself, repent, and run to the throne of God.  

Don’t do that! Don’t deny God.  You will become your biggest enemy.  

I have hope this year as it ends.  I won’t elaborate as to why.  But I do.  I quieted myself somewhat this Christmas season, and I did not write.  I did not get on social media.  I even distanced myself from beloved friends.  

I was wounded this last year, in 2017, spiritually.  So, I needed to heal myself.  It has been a difficult process, but I think I am coming out of it.  

You see, I myself, daily, had to remind myself to seek God more.  And to do a spiritual check.  Am I forgiving?  Am I walking in love?   Am I remembering who I am in Christ, and what He says, I can take authority over?  What I can bind, or loose….so these are things, I take to heart from Gods holy word.  

I will not if I know I have done something wrong, give the enemy a legal right to attack me.  First of all I would repent, and to any one, I might have offended.  

I will use all I can by submitting to God, resisting the enemy, so I can be blessed, and get my breakthroughs, and please God.  Being humble, can make such a difference.  

Friends, pleasing God is wonderful.  You notice it, when you do….

Well, Happy New Year.  I pray you find your healing, for 2018, and your health spiritually and physically is manifested, by protecting you, through God.   He can heal your soul, and physical body, seek Him.  Like the saying goes, Wise men and women still seek Him.  

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART, AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  IN ALL THY WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS.  BE NOT WISE IN THINE OWN EYES, FEAR THE LORD, AND DEPART FROM EVIL.  IT SHALL BE HEALTH TO THY NAVEL, AND MARROW TO THY BONES.  PROVERBS 3:5-8. King James only.  

Give God glory friends, it may begin by speaking out there, and just never, ever be ashamed of who Christ is in you.  Who cares what the enemy thinks?  Who cares what others think?  Why one gets that mindset of what others think, can be so destructive, to our own growth, and spiritual health.

 Think about what God sees, if you would deny Him.  He is the one, we always have to please.  He is the one who sees, I know, my above photo proved that to me.  He answers…..  

I just felt God prompt me about that, because many do not express their faith, and become ashamed.  And that will steal from you, and it is exactly what the enemy wants to do.  That ugly old enemy has always wanted to steal from God.  Don’t let that happen, give God glory.  For He is mighty and good, merciful, and worthy of all our praise, adoration, and love.  

GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST….GLORY, HONOR AND PRAISE, OH LORD, HOW GREAT YOU ARE!  THANK YOU FATHER, FOR HEALING ME, THIS 2017 INTO 2018.  HALLELUJAH….<3

 

Blessings, and love,

THE TRUE LIGHT FROM GOD BRINGS GLADNESS TO GROW ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0049.jpgDon’t you want to grow?  Don’t you want to be glad?  I know I do…. and if we look for the light in Gods Holy King James word, we can see the light.  

Words, they may be skimmed over, or not even taken to heart, if you are in darkness, you might not see them.

But if you take to heart what Christ said, that He is the light of the world, and you let His word, be a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path you could find that light to grow.  

THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET, AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH.  PSALMS 119:105.  KJV.

I AM COME A LIGHT INTO THE WORLD, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON ME SHOULD NOT ABIDE IN DARKNESS.  JOHN 12:46.  KJV. 

I want to use the analogy of a flower, and how it needs light.  Do you notice there are some plants, that thrive on light?  If you put them in a dark place, they won’t grow.  They won’t become the best they can be.  They may even die.  Sadly.  

Well there are instructions, to certain plants so they can grow.  So they can thrive, and bloom, and become beautiful.  To bring beauty, to express who God is, to shine….

Friends, let me just say this, God created, each and every one of us, to shine, for His glory.  We need KJV instruction to grow. 

And if we are allowing darkness, to invade our spirits, whatever that may be.  We will not grow. 

Many people, think I am odd, because as an example, I won’t see certain movies.  I won’t allow that darkness, to enter my “eye-gate.”  

Evil movies, or even movies, that come in the name of the Lord, but they are not based on King James scriptures.  They take the concept of God, and totally distort that.  That brings darkness.  

To me, thats deception, and it comes from the enemy.  To bring darkness.  To confuse, to distort, what Father says, in His King James word.  So I won’t watch them. 

THE LIGHT OF THE BODY IS THE EYE:  IF THEREFORE THINE EYE BE SINGLE, THY WHOLE BODY SHALL BE FULL OF LIGHT.  BUT IF THINE EYE BE EVIL, THY WHOLE BODY SHALL BE FULL OF DARKNESS.  IF THEREFORE THE LIGHT, THAT IS IN THEE BE DARKNESS, HOW GREAT IS THAT DARKNESS!  MATTHEW 6:22-23.  KJV. 

We sometimes, do not realize the ramifications of our compromising, or our allowing of such things in our spirit.  Another reason, why I won’t go to a psychic, or a fortune teller, or read, my horoscope.  For these things bring darkness.  And God totally rejects these entities.  He wants us to be holy.  He wants us to seek Him, and only Him.  Anything that is not of God, is darkness…

We so have to guard our spirits.  We so have to repent, for even doing something that may offend God in this.  For they bring curses.  They bring darkness.  We live in this world, but friends, God has told us not to be a part of it.  

To be a part of it is to be an enemy of God.  

I just want to inspire you to seek light.  Seek truth, seek the good, be the good, be light, as Christ is light.  To others, and for yourself.  

To be glad, that above scripture in that photo, says so much.  But how important is it for us to really sow light?  How important is it for us, to try and be righteous?  How important is it for us, to try and be upright in our hearts?  When I read this, I see light is sown for gladness.  

I so want the joy and gladness, that only God can give?  Don’t you?

Just my thoughts today.  In love, I want to inspire you.  Let us stay away from sin, or anything else that brings darkness.  

This is why, again as well, that I warn you don’t use those corrupted bibles.  For they have been compromised, changed, added to, and deleted.  After God warned us.  They are not light.  They are not holy.  They are part truth, and part lie.  

And if you look at them for light, you may see a counterfeit light.  Seek the true light.  This does affect us, And our discernment, our understanding, our sense of right and wrong, will be diminished if darkness is present.  We must seek the light.  

We must, depart from anything that brings darkness.  Even friends, folks…. there so much to this, concerning, the light….but this is why the world, is lost.  This is why atheists are doomed for hell, because they refuse to see the light.  Don’t be like them.  

THEN JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, YET A LITTLE WHILE IS THE LIGHT WITH YOU.  WALK WHILE YE HAVE THE LIGHT, LEST DARKNESS COME UPON YOU:  FOR HE THAT WALKETH IN DARKNESS KNOWETH NOT WHITHER HE GOETH.  JOHN 12:35.  KJV.  

Much love, Elena Ramirez 

 

 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEALTHY FEAR AND UNHEALTHY FEAR ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3922.jpg

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEALTHY FEAR AND UNHEALTHY FEAR… By Elena Ramirez

There is a difference, I believe, in what kind of fear is healthy, and one that is not healthy. I am older, I am just sharing. I believe this is wisdom. But, I know some people will not accept this, thats o.k. Its not up for debate, or argument. I am just obedient, to God, to bring perspective. And you know what, it helps me, to understand.

But the healthy fear, one can have, and is King James scriptural. Is the fear of God. It is spoken of often in my Bible. I take it to heart. I don’t just reverence God, I FEAR GOD!

LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER: FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN. ECCLESIASTES 12:13. KJV.

I love my King James bible for bringing perspective.

Anyway, fearing God… Its one of the most healthiest things, I have learned to do. It keeps me out of hot water, it keeps me out of sin, it reminds me who has my soul. Who can change things for me. It reminds me, how fragile really our lives are, and how we so need God. In little things, and big things. The bottom line in fearing God, is knowing, He has power to send my soul to heaven or hell. Thats healthy. To fear almighty, God.

Healthy fear, is just common knowledge, sometimes, not to do something, not to go somewhere, that could be dangerous. But that really does require submission to God.

The unhealthy fear, one can have, really is sneaky, and can come from the enemy himself. If we do not have fear of God, or if we just are not prayerful, or we put our guard down. God tells us, He does not give us a spirit of fear. So then that tells me the enemy sends it.

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND. II TIMOTHY 1:7. KJV.

Unhealthy fear….That kind of fear, can come, to paralyze, you. To be afraid, to even live. To fret, to get paranoid. To distrust, even others. But sometimes, that is your gut instinct, from the Holy spirit, so you have to test it. Anyway, an unhealthy fear may cause you to just live in a way, where you are not fulfilled. Where you may get a false sense of reality.

I am not a psychiatrist, but to be honest, the ways of the world, and the ways of God are so much different, in relating to why things happen. I choose to trust the ways of God.

When something happens, to someone you love, and you see how some people are not kind, but manipulative, and they hurt others, or scam others, you do get that guard up. I have had a few of those in my life. Yet, I always choose to go on, and be the best I can be in Christ, and to forgive. And to know the difference.

Recently, this happened to me, because it happened to someone I love….and well it just made me think….

We learn from our experiences. It affects us. And today, it just reminded me, of the difference, between healthy fear, and unhealthy fear. I have stumbled, I have had both fears, unhealthy, and healthy, but what always has healed me, is the fear of God.

He will take care of everything else concerning me. Or you, if we just trust Him, and yes fear Him, as scripture says.

I could write a book on this….. maybe I will. It just depends on what kind of support I get, from God, and others in the interest…..But I hope it helps someone with fear.

Fear my friends, if unhealthy, really is not healthy for your soul. I do know this. Truly the fear of God, changes that.

Blessings, and love,
Elena Ramirez
