WHEN THE DEVIL WHISPERS DOUBT REBUKE HIM GO TO GOD GO BACK TO THE KING JAMES BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0564.jpgFrom the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth.  And even with a question.  Which brings doubt.  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1  King James.

See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.  

The battle will be in the mind.  We will be tossed to and fro.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See how that scripture talks about doctrine?

We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit.  From that tree.  And she gave the right answer.  But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.  

AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.  FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.  GENESIS 3:5  KJV.

What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.  

And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil?  Because He loves us that much.  So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses.  That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God. 

So we have to be aware of the enemies antics.  We have to remember when we doubt.  When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous.  Thats actually stupid.    So I don’t challenge what God says.  I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it.  That gives me hope.  That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth.  But Gods truth, will never let me down.  

SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH:  THY WORD IS TRUTH.  JOHN 17:17  KJV.  

What does God really say?  This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.  

Because they do make one question what God really says.  But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.  

I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings.  Of corrupt Bibles.  Since, I use a KJV.  I don’t get that confusion.  Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James.  Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying. 

Eve did not obey.  Adam did not obey.  But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better.  We do not have to question it.  But…by obedience.  Thats showing God we are obeying.  Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.

If you are in that battle of the mind.  In anything, go to God.  Rebuke the devil.  Thats a spirit of confusion.  And God is not the author of confusion.  

FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS.  I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.  

I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.

But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.

Always ask God. Always.  In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate.  So I can know…..

Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.

UNDERSTANDING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SPIRITUALISM AND MENTAL ILLNESS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1116.jpgFirst of all, as my disclaimer:

I am not a psychiatrist, I am not in the business, of telling anybody, why they have a mental illness.

But, I am someone who has learned so much from God.  And I have seen things in the spirit realm that have taught me, there is a connection between spiritualism and mental illness.  Or the battle in the mind.  The sense of no peace, the challenge of being stable.  Or unstable.  

It comes from two sources.  And you have to see this from the perspective of your own spirit.  Either good or evil.  God or the devil.  And the foundation of your mental health, will be determined by your spiritual health.  

Who rules your spirit? This is the question, you most definitely need to ask yourself.  To find out yourself within, who rules your soul?  Because this will determine your behavior, and your motives, your mental health, by your spiritualism.  

By the choices you make, with God, or the devil.  You have no other choice.  You may think you do, but it will always result from the consequences, of the choice to believe in God.  Or the enemy.  

By your choice….this is always a choice.  But the principles are in place, and will determine “fruit.”

To obey God, to take His commandments, His law to heart.  To fear God, to depart from evil, and to submit to God.  Or to give into the devil.  To disobey God.  With Temptations, disbelief, etc.  See the difference. 

Scripture tells us, “submit” to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  That key word, is “submitting” to God.  Until you do, you will have that battle in the mind.  See the enemy is a spirit of confusion.  He is known to come, kill, steal, and destroy.  He is a mocker.  He is jealous, he was of God, so he is also jealous if you try and make God your Lord and savior.  He wants to steal the glory from God.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7.  KJV.  

So, if you do not believe in God, you will be tossed to and fro.  That spirit, will dominate you, and your behavior, so that you may do things that are not kind, good, or even healthy for yourself.  The spirit, will lead you to do things, that are evil.  To even think evil.  You may have not acted on those thoughts, but they are there, and that is sin.  For lack of a better word.  So that will dictate to you, and control you, in what you do.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, TOSSED TO AND FRO, AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See the above scripture, reinforces what I am always saying about doctrine, because other bible versions are corrupt.  And it deceives.  You will be tossed to and fro, even if you think you are safe, your not, because your word is corrupt, if you use these fake versions.  

If a person, is totally submitted to Christ.  Even by the word they choose in a King James.  Wanting to obey God, fearing God of consequences of sin, prayerful, in a relationship, the spirit, of God, will lead.  There will be no mental illness.  

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.  I CORINTHIANS 2:16  KJV.  

I don’t care what people think or try to dictate to me, I know the difference.  They have not walked in my shoes.  They may mock.  But God is not mocked, and they will reap that.  But I know, I have had my part, to try and please God.  To pray, to obey Him, His commandments.  To love….

You see, I was lost.  When I was lost that spirit, of the devil led me, and I made so many mistakes in judgment, and in my own personal life.  My moral code, was damaged, because I did not submit to God.  I actually had no moral code.  Or fear of God. Concerning consequences on earth, or if I had died.  And that is a very dangerous place to be.  Because we will all stand before God.  Hell is real.  Hell on earth is just as real.  I thank Him and praise Him that He saved me, taught me.  

But when God found me, and I recall the night, I had a revelation of who Christ was.  I submitted to God.  For your own revelation, think of what Christ did for you on that cross.  

Now you cannot, be partial in this, and just say you believe in God.  Because scripture tells us, even the devil believes in God. 

The key is totally giving your heart, life, mind, soul to God, so you can grow spiritually.  So you can have peace.  Scripture also tells us, that there is no peace to the wicked.  

Begin by repenting.  Even if you don’t think you have done anything wrong.  This cleans the slate.  Be humble in the sight of God.  Ask God to forgive you.  Even for unbelieving.   This is why I actually believe in daily repentance.  Because we can sin, even unknowingly.  and we all do sin, folks, and come short of the glory of God.  Our works, can be filthy rags….

The way to enrich your mind, is get a King James bible.  As you know, I do not support any other bible.  Because they are corrupted.  Exactly what the enemy wants you to do, so you get static.  You get part truth, part lie.  You will not grow, until you change your word.  And you may have a battle in the mind, until you do.

Stay away from things or situations, that feed your spirit.  Like evil movies.  Evil books, anything that can plant seeds of evil, or doubt in your mind.  Stay away from evil people.  Toxic people. 

You have to have the mind set, to want to please God.  And when you do you will be released, your eyes will be opened, and you can begin the process of healing mentally, because you are healing spiritually.  

If I start to watch a movie, or read a book, that I know has evil spiritualism, I put it away from me.  You don’t want to tempt yourself.  

And you don’t want to let in spirits, that have been cleansed back into your soul.  They will come in worse, in greater capacity, that is not great for your soul.  

THEN GOETH HE, AND TAKETH WITH HIMSELF SEVEN OTHER SPIRITS MORE WICKED THEN HIMSELF, AND THEY ENTER IN AND DWELL THERE:  AND THE LAST STATE OF THAT MAN IS WORSE THAN THE FIRST.  EVEN SO SHALL IT BE ALSO UNTIL THIS WICKED GENERATION.  MATTHEW 12:45  KJV.

The bottom line is, to be in fear of God, by choosing His Holy spirit, to guide you.  So, you can be healed mentally.  I truly believe that.  With all my heart.  See you fear God, so you don’t have to have fear in the mind of something or someone else.  Thats the key:

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

I always recommend, finding help, if you are in that desperate place.  But God will help you, if you seek Him.  And I hope you find your way, take this to heart.  Because Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  Read John 14:6 from a King James.  

Feel free to share this post, you might help someone, see why they act the way they do.  You might save a soul.   

Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez 

UNDERSTANDING WHY MANY ARE TURNED OFF WITH RELIGION ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If I was searching for religion, I would want truth.  I would want something, that would bring me closer to God.  So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants.  How to survive.  

More then anything how to thrive in life.    

There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.  

Or how some get misled.  Or fall into cults.  Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him.  Yet they get misled.  

First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:

Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups.  These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.  

Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.  

These people leave out one great element, and that is love.  Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust.  I am talking about holy love.  Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments.  And just Him.  And loving others.  Strange how they leave that love out.  And that it is a commandment.  They leave it out.  They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love.  You have to listen carefully.  

The sad thing though, is many claim they do.  They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say.  They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on.  But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say.  They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is.  They pick and choose.  

Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth.  You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.  

Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God.  Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin.  That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.  

YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?  MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.  

Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision.  It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible.  GET A KING JAMES BIBLE.  Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.  

If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church.  A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would.    Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.  

I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway.  And where he did not believe there was a hell.  And that message is so wrong.  But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul.  And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong.  As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic.  And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads.  And he is the blind leading the blind.  He does become branded a Heretic.  But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.  

The movie is entitled:  Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate.  Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it.  Because hell is real. 

Maybe this is why I write.  Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies.  They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.  

I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself.  Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies.  You need to search for God yourself.  So you can know.  Religion, will not do that.  

Its a turn off to many.  And I understand it.  The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says.  Religion.  Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think.  And its wrong. 

I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.

So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free.  One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.  

I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer.   By seeing, I needed to repent.  By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.

I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate.   I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water.  But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference.  I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.  

AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE.  AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.  

JOHN 10:4-5  King James.  

Look, I don’t know who my audience is here.  But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God.  Don’t stop searching for God.  

You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses.  And that we are all the same.  We are not!  

And you don’t want anything to do with them.  I understand that.  I stay away from them too.  But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is.  You need truth, friend.  

Don’t search for religion friend.  Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings.   Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ.  Never a person. 

I would start by just a prayer.  Repenting, admitting, your sins.  Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you.  Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you.  Or implemented as a rule for you.  

See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search.  Don’t deny the law.  Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law.  We do.  

I recommend a King James bible.  For holiness.  Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much.  Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives.  So use only a King James bible.

Pray to Him daily.  And I also believe in daily repentance to God.  Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent.  This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him.  He is your greatest friend.  He will never leave or forsake you.  He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.  

You need to keep it up, or you will get cold.  If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.

IMG_0012  

Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.  

Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off.  But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ…..

WHEN YOU SEE A FRIEND GO TO THE DARK SIDE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3886There are signs, there are signals, one might see, if they have a friend, that goes to the dark side.

And you grieve for them, because you love them.  But you cannot do anything.  Because God gives us a choice.  Its always a choice.

But when someone, purposely has pride, will not be humble, will not forgive, will not communicate, will believe a lie, and actually fight you, to maintain all that, hate.  

Well….all you can do is walk away.  When someone, will bring up offenses, over and over again, that is not forgiving.  

See, the enemy, has deceived them.  And when any of us, purposely disobey God in matters of forgiveness, well, thats giving place to the enemy.  Thats going to the dark side.  

See, our words do matter.  When one makes a commitment, to love God, and love one another, one takes it to heart.  You don’t just say it when its convenient, or when its going good.  But through all times.  

But I was not the one who made the choice to close the case but her.  And, to depart from that, is a choice, and its a choice, that brings darkness.  God sees.  

Scripture says, a friend, loves at all times, not when its convenient.  Or when, everything is alright.  Love, does love through, the disagreements, the silence, and even, the hate.  

See, I know, I love someone, someone, I called a sister, a friend, who for so much showed friendship and loyalty, to me, but when it came down to it, she was not accountable, to her own behavior.  I still love this person, but I see, she has stepped into the darkness.  And now I just grieve for her.  

Because now she is just someone, who wants nothing to do with me, ever again.  And I respect that.  It does hurt, but I am grateful, I have my armor on, and I will quench those fiery darts from the enemy, that he uses, from my frien-enemy to throw at me.  

I am careful, always, to offer forgiveness, because I know myself, that if we are not pleasing God in this, He will not forgive us.  And the record shows I did. But she rejected it.  

I may have made mistakes, in fact, I know I did, in friendship with this person, I am thinking about.  But the grace was not there for me.  And I kept seeing it, and yet I offered grace, but she would not.  She offered me the silent treatment, closed the case, and let obscenities be spoken about me.  That is not love.

So, when you don’t see grace, that is a signal, that this person, has their blinders on.  Sad thing is, if you keep your blinders on, and do not obey God,  You can miss it.  And walk right into the enemies camp, of darkness.  And he only comes to kill, steal and destroy.  Even friendships, based on prayer, and God.  Especially those kind, and that was the kind of friendship we had, at one time.  

Sad thing is though, when you see other friends, contribute to that, and take sides, well they have gone to the dark side with that person.  I REBUKE THAT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.  I MARK THAT, AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM EITHER. 

We pray for people, but we also know, its a choice.  You want to pull them out of the fiery flames, but when people silence you, want nothing to do with you.

 You go, on, with Christ.  Christ said, as His disciples, we were to love one another.  He said, that we were to forgive.  He said, that love would show we were His disciples.  I have tried, but I am done.  

I will try and not write about this person, ever again, concerning this person.  Because this person, did not care, that she wounded me.  But this is how I heal.  And I have nothing further to say, you see, I tried. And I know it.

I have so many cards from this person, so many reminders, of a commitment, that she just forgot about.  So I may do some purging, of gifts, and reminders. 

Make sure you have done all you can in love, and forgiveness, and let the record reflect that.  Because there is one.  And God sees.  

If you can relate to my friend, I  implore you to repent to God.  I don’t expect an apology at this point, from her, but if I can warn someone, don’t go to the dark side.  

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:35  KJV.  

Blessings, and love,

WHY IS FAVOR DECEITFUL? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

Why Is Favor Deceitful?  By Christian Author Elena Ramirez 

FAVOR IS DECEITFUL, AND BEAUTY IS VAIN:  BUT A WOMAN THAT FEARETH THE LORD, SHE SHALL BE PRAISED.  Proverbs 31:30.  KJV.  

I have to say first, that I fear God.  I have learned that, in my journey of life.  I know there are consequences to sin.  I know, that I have reaped what I have sowed, many times.   So I fear God.  I fear the one, who can part heaven and earth on my behalf.  I fear God, who has the final say, as to whether or not Heaven or hell is my home for eternity.  I fear God.  I have learned this.  

Yet there is grace, and there is a compassion, and mercy, that God extends, but I have to be honest.  Thats favor.  

 And I always want to make you think…. Even as I ask this question. Why is favor Deceitful? For the above scripture says it is. And I believe Gods King James word.

Thats why this blog is called, “Just My Thoughts”, but I know its not me, its God, and He gives me the inspiration, I do have.  I call that favor. And I really study His word, to pray, to have the mind of Christ.  But I don’t take it for granted, because I know its a gift.  And if He favors me to do that, I want to do it, at my best ability, for His glory.  But I also realize….

In my own personal life….

Favor, has not been a strong force in my life.  Even according to the worlds standards.  Doors haven’t flung open.  People, and help has not come my way.  Money has not been a great favor either.  And maybe thats good.  Things, have not easily come to me.  

Yet, He meets my every need.  When I need.  Thats favor as well. I am trying to find the balance in this, because I am grateful.  But yet, I haven’t had great favor from people, even from family.  Or friends, I realize.  As I write this.  

I have had my struggles, and I won’t go into all the details.  But, on the subject of favor, and in my humble opinion, I just have a sense, even lately, that we can miss it.  One can take things for granted.  And I think thats a dangerous place to be.  

You can miss it, if you have favor.  And this is why I believe the scripture says it can be deceitful.  It may handicap you so you don’t strive for the excellence, from God, in fear of God.  

Because you think, you know what?

He loves me, this is a great life I live, and I have His favor.  So you stop trying….

You stop trying to please God.  You stop taking the commandments to heart.  His law. You start puffing yourself up, like you are a know it all, or you might even think you are better then somebody else.  So many people in our world, deny God, because they think its all about them, and that is just wrong.  

And when I give an analogy, of why I feel even here, why favor can be deceitful, it is because it could, cause one, to stop growing.  

Just think about it. Think about the beautiful people you know.  People, that are handed things in life, without much of a struggle, they have favor.  But when you look at them sometimes deeper, you realize like all of us, they have flaws.  But yet, they think they are better.   The light might be on, but who is inside?  

The flaws, may not be on the outside, because they are beautiful.  But inside, they are broken.  But they might not see it.  They are, content, even to say, that they don’t feel like they have to try.  I have met people like that.  I have met some people, who like to play at being dumb, and thats a dangerous place to be.  They put the “duh” in dumb.  

And they may even say they believe in God, but there is something, I see, and I relate it to scripture.  That is missing, and is it because favor was deceitful?

FOR MEN SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, COVETOUS, BOASTERS, PROUD, BLASPHEMERS, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS, UNTHANKFUL, UNHOLY, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, TRUCEBREAKERS, FALSE ACCUSERS, INCONTINENT, FIERCE, DESPISERS OF THOSE THAT ARE GOOD, TRAITORS, HEADY, HIGHMINDED, LOVERS OF PLEASURES MORE THAN LOVERS OF GOD; HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING THE POWER THEREOF, FROM SUCH TURN AWAY.  II TIMOTHY 3:3-5.  KJV (please see this from a King James, these same scriptures are out there, but they are corrupted word)

They deny the power thereof.  I will repeat that, they deny the power thereof, because I think, they believe, the favor they have, or may I even say, the “grace” they have, makes them think they don’t have to even say, please or thank you.  

They don’t have to try, they think its all a given.  The favor.  They think they deserve it.  Just because they are on this earth.  Wrong.  Turn away from those kind of examples.  And those kind of people, they should not be your role model.  Jesus should be.  

Do we deserve favor?  I used to think I did. I used to think, I deserved it.  I used to think, just because I served, God, I deserved it.  But, at this point in my life, with all my own failures, and my own flaws, I don’t think I deserve favor any more.  

Maybe thats sad, to expect it, or want it, and evens ay that here, but maybe its for the best, I have not had great favor.  Now I know, I am the head, and not the tail.  According to scripture, but I want to find the right balance, that pleases God.  

Maybe, because I have learned the hard way, to work for what I have, to be my own person, in Christ, and not take anything for granted.  To study who He is, personally.  And see His attributes, His beautiful characteristics.  

To not take a religious figure, and put them on a pedestal, because we all can miss it.  Because that is also idolatry.  And God gets jealous.  But to just be thankful, for what I do have, and give God glory, because I see the difference.  

See, grace and favor, are great, to have, and I am not an idiot, I would love it.  But, I have learned, as well, that favor, can be deceitful.  The enemy, can distract you, and have doors opened, that may make you, think its favor from God, but it may be a test.  How about that idea?  Hmm…..

I was just talking about this with a friend, lately, that, I am sometimes hard on myself.  But, I would rather be hard on myself, and see the error of my ways, then to offer myself grace, and miss it.  

I don’t want to miss being accountable to God and others.  Growth can only happen when we see the error of our ways, repent to God, and in that process, perhaps apologize to someone, or try to make it up, in one way or another.  But more to God.  To change more like Christ.  To get my eyes off of me, my problems, and look at how Christ relates to it.  

But if you have constant favor, you might not try.  So, you be the judge, in it, concerning your own life.  Yes, I long for favor too, but in it, I just pray, I will not grow cold, indifferent, desensitized, or I will not get puffed up, or full of myself and forget where I came from.

This West side kid, from Denver, Colorado, knows her humble beginnings.  I know where God has brought me, from.  I know, I am nothing without Jesus.  I know I hit rock bottom at one time.  I know, that I fell through the cracks in many ways.   

Maybe thats all the favor I need.  Because He saved me.  He reached out, and saved me.  I will take it, and be thankful.  I will also serve Him, for the rest of my life.  Whether I have extra favor or not.  

God already proved Himself to me, and I know it.  He does not have to jump through hoops for me.  I know He saved me, I know my God.  And I also, know there is a lost world out there.  I know, many need to see His light, and I will try and shine it.  

And I pray if I ever get any more favor, I will always be mindful to consider those scriptures above, and not deny the power, thereof.  Because then the scripture would be fulfilled to say that yes, favor is deceitful.  And I don’t want favor to be deceitful in my life.

 Just saying….in just these thoughts of mine.

Blessings and love,

PRACTICE TRUTH SO YOU CAN BE FREE ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez

I want to say this, and I want to say it in love. Because I see some struggling with truth. I see how it paralyzes you. You are afraid. You might even feel like a hypocrite.

 

You don’t think there will be grace or forgiveness. Especially in matters of loyalty, and friendship. You want to be loyal to God, but you cannot if you are not to others. Because you are not being honest. It shows. It seems to be a double standard. You think that there is no hope. You are in a prison, because you have not learned how to break out of the chains, you, yourself, have put on you.
 
I grieve for you, because I love you. I grieve for you, because I know more then anything Christ loves you. But you are struggling right now, and you do not have to. Let the truth, be the truth, and let it fall off of you. Break the chains, and if anything, relate yourself to being free. Even if you were denied. Be free, be courageous, and be love. This is what counts, and you have to see, how you become your own enemy when you hide the truth. You are hiding it. And hurting yourself.
 
Scripture tells us, the truth will set us free. And I will be honest with you. Gods KJV truth set me free. Because I use it, and live by it.
 
There were things in my life, that held me prisoner, I was so ashamed….but I know the difference. Even now, I still make mistakes, that I pray are not sin. But I look at them, I don’t make excuses, I apologize if I have to. I repent, and then I go on.
 
Even now, the enemy, tries to whisper cruel and mean things, to remind me, and I say, “Shut up devil, I took it to the cross, in repentance.” I plead the blood of Jesus in truth!
 
I know what Gods word can do to change someone. From sin. To His sweet righteousness.
 
Start with His KJV word, start sharing it, and see the difference. Grow. Your on the vine with Christ. Start sharing that truth, and see how the truth will set you free in other areas. It will, it will do something so great for you. But as you are breaking the chains, on you. You are breaking the chains off of someone else. Thats always the goal, for His glory.
 
But if you do not, there will be things in your life, that will keep you in bondage, because you don’t use it, and its right there.
 
You have to see yourself in bondage. And why you hide a lie. You have to see, how it holds you back.
 
See the scriptures right in front of you. Open the King James Bible, book, tell others, and be free.
 
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. JOHN 8:32.
 

SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

I have seen this a lot lately, no respect.  No respect, for boundaries, friendships, authorities,  our civil liberties, for life, for the unborn, for people, for anything, it seems like any more.  

There is no fear or respect of Gods laws and commandments.  For so many have thrown out His law, out the window, and think grace has covered it.  With this stinking thinking, so many have hooked onto, and they reject the law.  Thinking they are free from the law, in the new covenant.  Think again…  God does not flip flop!  He does not change.  He did not change….

THEREFORE THOU SHALT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO FEAR HIM.  Deuteronomy 8:6.  KJV.  

There is no respect.  People say what they want to say.  They mock what they want to mock, and they don’t think of the consequences, for even their own good.  

People are not taught this, when I grew up, we were taught to respect.  I was.  Even if you don’t agree with someone.  Even if you think they are wrong.  There is a way to communicate, without being disrespectful.  Like yes, sir, yes, ma’am…..

I am so glad I was, taught this, because it taught me, to respect the fear of God.  I fear God.  I know, even in my own life, I have reaped things, because of my own rebellion.   When I see, that someone should know better, or they have not corrected even their own family, or friends, to respect others, by people I love, I am shocked.  

My own ignorance, or even like my mother would say.  My own stupidness.  Has taught me more then ever about respect.  Yes, oh for years, I was grieved that she told me that, but at this point, I honor what she says.  More then ever I see….I was stupid.  But stupid, can get wise.  

I know that too.  Its not too late if you stop, and see the error of this.  I respect who I am in Christ.  With all my faults, and believe me I know I have had terrible judgment in some matters.  I know that there are lines not to cross, in matters of respect.  With myself, and yes with others.  For my own good. 

See, what happens, is we do reap what we sow.  Its a principle, folks.  Like what goes up, comes down.  It just is a principle. 

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7  KJV.  

And when I see so much of disrespect, and even with people, I love, it grieves me.  It has to grieve God as well.  

And I am not here, to make light of this.  People need to see there are consequences.  When someone crosses a line symbolically, against somebody with disrespect, and even God.  He sees that.  He does not bless disrespect.  Vengeance is the Lords…

Oh our Lord, is gracious, He is merciful, but people forget how to repent to Him, and to apologize to others, and to respect authority.  To respect life, and it brings in sin, and destruction.  

We should all be fearful of God in this.  For our own good.  I am not going to get into the many details I have seen recently.  But….It has been a lesson in life.

But I see it, even as our country is so divided.  I see it, and I wonder what will we reap, in all this disrespect? Individually, and as a nation, and for our souls.  Because God is not mocked folks.  

YE SHALL DO NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN JUDGMENT:  THOU SHALT NOT RESPECT THE PERSON OF THE POOR, NOR HONOUR THE PERSON OF THE MIGHTY:  BUT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL THOU JUDGE THY NEIGHBOUR.  LEVITICUS 19:14.  KJV.  

And bottom line is, we reap what we sow.  Maybe you won’t see it now.  But it opens doors to the enemy.  Its his goal, to come, kill, steal, and destroy.  But you will see it for sure when you stand before Christ, when you leave this earth.  Because Christ could very well tell any of us.  “I never knew you.”  

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.  Matthew 7:23  KJV.  

It is iniquity.  Its sin, to have that spirit of rebellion, that is disrespect. 

So much, that it could determine, hell or heaven.  Nobody, wants to hear the hell and brimstone message, but its truth.  And that is reaped as well….

Well, I just pray, whoever reads this would have a good heart to heart, with God.  Because  if you start with Him, it will go well.  He will teach you, about respect, but it comes with the fear of God, and the consequences He speaks about in my King James word.  He corrects those who He loves.  

HOLD THOU ME UP, AND I SHALL BE SAFE:  AND I WILL HAVE RESPECT UNTO THY STATUTES CONTINUALLY.  PSALM 119:117.  KJV.  

Don’t you want to be safe?  I do, I embrace this scripture.  And all of Gods word.  See thats just it.  You take all of Gods, King James scripture, and connect the dots, and it makes sense.  But you know better to not embrace, these fake versions, so you won’t get blinded.  Because there are commandments there too, like Revelation 22:18-19.  kjv.  (Look it up) 

But if you don’t even sense the Holy spirit, prompting you. Or you mock, even me, as I warn you in love, well….. its sad, and I don’t wish bad to anybody.  

But I know there are consequences.  I know, we reap what we sow.  And I know…. Gods ways are not our ways, but we should very well stop and see what we are doing.  Or we don’t grow.  

If you have disrespect it may be, because you do not fear God, and we are commanded to fear God.

YE SHALL NOT THEREFORE OPPRESS ONE ANOTHER:  BUT THOU SHALT FEAR THY GOD:  FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.  LEVITICUS 25:17  KJV.  

But…You may very well, be headed to meet the fear of God.  And its a terrible thing to fall into the hands of our living God.  Without the fear of Him.  

IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD.  HEBREWS 10:31  KJV.  

Blessings, and love, with respect, reverence and fear to my God….
