And for such a time as this I write it. Why God has shown me this, is beyond me, but I do want to serve our Lord in truth. His truth. Not mans truth, not a publisher who purposely disobeys God in this. And certainly not in false prophets, who are to me, wolves in sheep’s clothing.
I don’t want nothing to do with that. And yes, the Lord has been showing me these things.
For a while now, I have tried with all my being, giving scripture, concerning the KJV word. That these Bible versions, that are out, and very much used, are, an abomination to God. Yes, an abomination. He does not accept them. Because they have disobeyed God by changing the word, and the word is not holy, but compromised.
I have told so many, this, as best as I can to my own ability, but I need the ability of God, so I press in with prayer, and the Holy word, in the King James, as Christ is the word. (see John 1 from the KJV to see His truth, as to being the word.) So I don’t just spin my wheels.
It just makes me think, He is holy. He did not compromise. Truth. He spoke it in love, and He was steadfast in that.
I want to be like that. I have been in a few spiritual battles lately, for this reason, but also because with the recent tragedies, I have seen “false prophets.” Those that claim they are serving God, yet they cannot serve their fellow person, unless they are publicly shamed. I have seen these false prophets, take scripture, twist it, change it, compromise it, for a prosperity message. That tickles others ears, but it is so far, from Gods truth, its obvious. There is no call, or warning to call those to repent. To tell them to seek Christ, because we are in end times. To ensure their salvation.
But obviously not to some, they think these messages are fine. For some think that their is an anointing in these messages. They think if it makes you feel good, it is good, and thereby there is no harm in it. They don’t see the contradictions because it does not line up with Gods holy word. Yet, the message eludes repentance, or a calling of those to beware, and to seek God for who He is, not what He can give. They turn God into an ATM. Its very deceptive, because it does tickle the ears. It grieves me. So if it grieves me it has to grieve God.
My thought is this, as it is also KJV scriptural, you know them by their fruit. Is the message, based on Gods holy, uncompromised Holy KJV word? Or is it a message, that tickles your ears? Is it a message, that does not cause you to search for God by also searching yourself, to see where one may fail? To repent to be humble? Is it a prosperity message? That totally disregards Gods truth, and commandments, His law. Gods ways are excellence. And He is not mocked. There was a reason, why Christ turned the tables in the temple. Do we forget what angers God?
One man, told me, I don’t care, if this prophet, is in the truth of the Bible, or if I even make it to heaven. I just want to have some hope in today. Wow, I thought.
For a while now, I have been trying to share this truth. About the deception in Bibles. Not to judge anybody, but because we are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the righteous. When I read that, from my King James. I am assuming the “righteous” is other Christians. And these brothers and sisters, who I try to warn, are not listening to what I say about exclusively only using the King James, but they are following false prophets. Who themselves use false word. They think its judging….
And I try to stop them, to bring it to their attention, not to judge them, but because I know what Gods word says in these matters, and I have discernment.
But it goes in one ear, and out the other. Either it is ignored, or they fight. And they fight with a vengeance, defending that which is wrong. They get so angry, if you bring it to their attention. They defend this unrighteousness, and they say you are judging. They dismiss, Gods holy word, that tells us, to beware of such prophets. Like Jeremiah 23:16.
THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, HEARKEN NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS THAT PROPHESY UNTO YOU: THEY MAKE YOU VAIN: THEY SPEAK A VISION OF THEIR OWN HEART, AND NOT OUT OF OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.
How specific does God have to get for us to get that? Do we have to see His wrath, before we open our eyes? Do we have to see our sins, separate ourselves from Him? Do we have to lose our blessings, our sense of discernment, because one would follow a prophet, who does that?
Oh how I grieved for that, man who told me that he did not even care if he made it to heaven! And I shared with him truth, but he did not even acknowledge me. I told him, get a King James bible.
I have told friends, who buy these books, and support these ministries, and read that crap, but they don’t listen. One friend, judged me, harshly, rudely, and insulted me, because I told her, I do not read these books, from someone who does not even obey God in this. This was concerning another false prophet.
Yet I walked in love. I had another friend, who totally ignored this but felt to even bring it up, one was a “backstabber” if they even said anything about a false prophet. Really? Because last time I checked, we are called to warn each other. We are called to mark those who cause division. And have nothing to do with them. We are called to test the spirits. To try them.
I had another friend, a gentleman, who told me I changed, I used to be so nice. And I thought, I still am nice. I just want you to have your blessings, I just want you to get answers to prayer. I just want you to please God. And have true discernment. I have noticed people would rather stop talking to you, and quit being your friend, if you even bring these matters up. About the KJV or false prophets.
Well oh well, I guess I am out of friends. Because I would rather please God, then deny His truth. But thats not true. I do have some faithful friends. Loyal friends. There are only a few that, that stand by me, support me, encourage me, and see my gift and calling. They share my writings, and they communicate. Communication is such a wonderful thing. Because we sharpen each other.
Anyway, concerning those who are not listening….
I have spoken these things, in love, and the love was not returned. I did not argue, fight, yet, I was ignored. And told to “agree, to disagree” was what was needed. Nor an apology was extended. Try telling God that when you ignore His word. Try telling God that when you need a miracle. Life is unpredictable, and if we are not doing our part, if we are not obedient to God, we are hypocrites, to say the least. How do we expect answers to prayer, if we do not obey Him, in just these matters?
If a pastor cannot obey God, even in the word he uses, or she, as a public speaker, why would I want that false anointing on me? Its part truth, and part lie! Where is the message for repentance, humbleness? These false prophets, promote pride.
But if you tell another brother or sister in Christ this, who thinks they are “righteous” (again like Ezekiel 33 says) They get very angry. They fight you. My thought is this, I do not want to be defending, or agreeing with someone that disobeys God in these matters. I don’t want to be on the wrong side. I would rather walk alone, then to be in the company of someone who insists these false bibles, and false prophets are correct.
Like the saying goes, “you can lead them to water, but you cannot make them drink it.” And I won’t hit someone on the head, with my King James bible, if they want to follow the blind. Like scripture says, the blind, will lead the blind, and they know not where they go. You might want to look it up from a KJV.
So this morning, because I know this is on Gods heart, He showed me the following scriptures:
WHY THEN IS THIS PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM SLIDDEN BACK BY PERPETUAL BACKSLIDING? THEY HOLD FAST DECEIT, THEY REFUSE TO RETURN. I HEARKENED AND HEARD, THEY SPAKE NOT ARIGHT: NO MAN REPENTED HIM OF HIS WICKEDNESS, SAYING WHAT HAVE I DONE? EVERY ONE TURNED TO HIS COURSE, AS THE HORSE RUSHETH INTO THE BATTLE. YEA, THE STORK IN THE HEAVEN KNOWETH HER APPOINTED TIMES; AND THE SWALLOW OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR COMING; BUT MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD. JEREMIAH 8:5-7. KJV.
Wow…His people do not know the judgment of the Lord. They refuse to return. From this, which God sees as backsliding. This is what I see, when my friends, or people ignore the warnings I give about false word, or false prophets. They do not repent, nor do they even acknowledge, the truth in these matters. They will not apologize, or even be accountable that they are not seeing it clearly. They would rather turn on the silent treatment. Well I can be silent too.
That scares me. In the fear of God. Not in judging, but in warning them.
I have another friend, who I love dearly. And we are having a discussion about not giving, and giving. Why? Because I don’t like being off balance. When I cannot give in return. Some people can do it free and easy. And some do not have the resources. I believe gifts, should be given in careful consideration, not just to give. I don’t like the feeling of just taking, but not being able to give equally. I don’t want to use anybody, nor do I want to feel used. I think thats a horrible feeling. But I also feel, that a gift is a spiritual connection, and if someone does not appreciate a gift, for example, and even re-gifts it, thats just sad. Especially if someone sees you playing with their heart, and you make excuses instead of being accountable.
Anyway, I don’t know why I feel this way, maybe this is why I serve God, with all I can, because I know I cannot repay Him, for who He is, and what He did on that cross. For me personally. His life was a gift. I don’t want God to feel like I am using Him.
And these false messages, that take part truth do remind me of that, with the prosperity message, like it promotes only using God, and that is so wrong. To me it is.
But I try and serve Him, so He knows, I am thankful. I serve Him, in HIS KJV truth, so He knows I am trying to obey Him. His gift of life is too precious to let it be only about the prosperity message, or to think even His grace is sufficient, when I know, I could make a difference.
But I will try, I will try with all my being. I will try to repay Him. I will try to stand in His truth. I will try…..
To give Love. I will try to obey, and warn others. I will try to serve Him, and never be ashamed to be called a Christian. I just want to be strong in His truth, and nothing else. I want to be aware of the enemies antics, and avoid the lies. The deception. I want nothing to do with it. I don’t want anything that separates me from God.
But there is something in my heart, that wants to at least, keep His KJV word, in love and obedience.
I just see the difference, between false word, and false prophets, and if I can spare someone, and at least give them that, to know truth, then maybe, just maybe, my life, will bring glory to God. And maybe just maybe, they can repent, return to God, and see the difference themselves, from false word, and false prophets. So they can avoid the deception.
Bottom line, if they do not use a KJV they are a false prophet to me. Sorry if this offends anybody, but thats the way I see it. I won’t argue about it, or try to convince anybody.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I know it is a little longer then most of my “Just my Thoughts.” Feel free to share this, if you agree with my thoughts. If not, oh well.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING…..By Elena Ramirez
If we cannot take a stand for God, in just a little thing. Like not seeing a certain movie, or not going to a place that is notorious, for sin, or accepting people, in our lives who are bad influences.
What kind of stand is that? How can we stand against the enemy in a big thing, if we are not strong against him, in a little thing?
Folks, we can miss it. I am sad today for I see, the little foxes steal the vines…..
We are the vine, growing with Christ, but if we do not submit to Him, we can be cut off.
Don’t we see that? Again. How can we stand against the enemy in big things, if we won’t submit to God even in little things?
And take a stand against that little thing? We ALL have to see this…
FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, EVEN A JEALOUS GOD. DEUTERONOMY 4:24.
God is jealous for your soul. He created you, in His image, and so when any of us, get off course, and we do not realize the error of our ways, He sees with jealousy!
I have seen in my own journey of life, where God has prompted to correct me here and there. But He has done it sometimes in jealousy….
He is such a gentleman, to me, but He has been known to teach me some hard lessons in life.
It grieves me, that sometimes, I have not had good judgment. It grieves me, that I made Father jealous.
I did not do it intentionally, but stupidly, being naive, being foolish, about not knowing His ways, His truth….For life. For He is the way, the truth, and the life.
Oh how I love my King James Bible. For there, I hear His voice. There I know the content is not corrupted, there, I find truth. His commandments. Not someone else’s voice, that would make Him jealous…
I remember one time, I got Father jealous, because of my fascination with angels. I had been collecting figurines of them. One time, I went to a good will store, and I found one, and she had a lantern, so I bought it.
That same night, I dreamt of her. She came alive. She was evil, and she was trying to steal my soul, the light of who Christ was. Her lantern was symbolic, to taking my light, and putting it in that lantern. I woke up, terrified.
And I immediately opened my bible. This scripture was immediately in view.
THOU SHALT HAVE NONE OTHER GODS BEFORE ME. THOU SHALT NOT MAKE THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATERS BENEATH THE EARTH. THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF UNTO THEM, NOR SERVE THEM, FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN UNTO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME. AND SHOWING MERCY UNTO THOUSANDS OF THEM THAT LOVE ME AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS. DEUTERONOMY 4:7-10.
I repented. I broke it, and smashed it into tiny little pieces. There was something attached to it, in the spirit, that I did not want even anybody else to have. So I broke it, and threw it in the trash. It was a lesson, I will never forget.
You see, God saw my fascination, but even as a child, He was teaching me not to have any idolatry, before Him. For as a child, I asked my mother, when we went to mass, why did the people bow down to the statues? She had been teaching me the ten commandments, so I knew. We went to different churches, so I know the difference.
But here I was caught up in the spirit of just collecting, but it offended God.
So I am always careful now, to stop and see, what I like, what I give attention to, and why? Even people… Does it become idolatry?
You see, I don’t want to offend God. I know He is jealous. That scripture says he will visit the iniquity of the fathers, upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.
Generational curses, one wonders, so I want the slate clean…..
Idolatry, can also come in the form, of loving one self. Did you know that? Remember the devil was an angel of light, who disguised himself. He can come into position by showing himself as beautiful. But behind his spirit, that ugly spirit will show up, as pride, and as conceited. He was jealous of God, but God won that fight and kicked Him out of heaven.
God does not share His glory with anyone. So it is wise, to watch out for anything that becomes idolatry, or that tries to take the place of our relationship with our Lord and savior. Because He is jealous…
I have learned lessons in that as well, though it is hard for me to articulate into words, I pray, not to give myself that attention, in these kind of matters. For it can turn into vanity.
I just want to please God. I just want His peace, in my life. I just want answers to prayer, and I do not want anything in my life, that is sin, that would take priority, or hinder my prayers. I want His protection. I just love His presence….
I want to see Him glorified, though, because of all of this. I want Him to know, and the world…so I speak it. I don’t want to make Him jealous. And I want for Him to receive any glory, or honor, or prestige, concerning anything, I prosper in. Because if you think about it, our lives are in His hand. Our health, our wealth, our blessings…..small and large.
It takes deliberate thought, to make sure when I come before Him, even in prayer, that I know, that I know who I am talking to.
He is the King of Kings, He is the Lord of Lords. He is the healer, the provider, the creator of Heaven and earth, and so much more. I do not want to make him jealous, by giving someone, or anything more priority then I do him.
So I want to be careful. Do you think about that? Are you aware He is jealous for your soul? Food for thought, I pray this blesses you…
In Christ, Elena Ramirez
The more I grow in Christ, and the more I know His Holy word, I am convicted, when I say or do something wrong.
My spirit, just knows, when I am out of line so to speak. Or if I somehow get into a place, where I know, I have done something or said something, that is not strong, is not right for lack of better words in the sight of God. I know it…
Sometimes, we compromise. Yet we should be strong in who we are in Christ. If we know the truth, and we are free, totally free, as Christ has told us, and we have given our hearts, we are grateful for another chance. Yet, we live in this world, we are called not to be a part of the world, but we can stumble. We can even fall.
I love repentance for this very reason, but with that said, and knowing we can be given grace. Do we compromise who we are? I suppose, because I understand, that grace cannot be extended without repentance, what about those, who have given their hearts to Christ, but they think that is it? As babies in Christ, do we think we have nothing else to do? I see the difference, because I am no longer a baby in Christ.
But babies…without truth, or understanding of Gods ways, and yes even bad doctrine. They don’t think they have to do anything, any more, and they think they have a place in heaven. They actually in some twisted sense, believe, it now gives them permission to sin. Their salvation, is in tact, they think….so they do what they want, and sin. They compromise Gods grace.
You know, it is a good thing to know good true, King James scriptures. Because the other versions, compromise a word here and there. And it does take away the holiness. So, when I look at my King James, I see. God is not mocked.
God is not mocked my friends. And we never get away with anything, we say or do, for the final outcome, is documented in the book of life. And yes our names if we have given our hearts to Christ is in the lambs book of life. Two separate books.
But, if we play with our salvation, if we play with what Christ has done for us, we can have our names removed, or blotted, out of the Lambs book of life. Once saved, is not always saved. And many would argue with that, but do your own search, and see, use the King James Bible as the search, and look for words that mention “blot” or “blotted.”
Every thing we have said or done, is being recorded. We are judged by our words. I suppose I am writing this, myself, because I do have the fear of God. And I want to be stronger, as a Christian, and yes as an ambassador of Christ.
I don’t like hitting people on the head with the Bible, yet, I know, I have to be firm in my own belief. I cannot compromise. I found myself, yesterday chatting with a friend, but I felt like I compromised who I was in Christ, and worse, that I compromised what Gods word says. I repented.
Such a balance we have to find, in who we are in Christ. But truly, we have to be mindful yes, of His grace. But do we compromise? One compromise, can lead to another, and then we would be totally deceived by the enemy. I just want us to see, because I know I have not heard this message, from any prominent ministry, but one must be so careful.
I love the Lord, I love serving Him, and I pray He uses me, but I also want to be someone who speaks truth, boldly, and not compromising, yet with love. I wanted this person to feel love, and not the wrath of God.
Yet, could we do a disservice if we are not saying exactly what God says? Lord forgive us. Help us. This is where the word “judging” can come in, because many know truth, but do not say anything, because the enemy can use judging to interrupt truth. Yet we are called to expose darkness. Do we, speak truth or do we compromise?
This can cover so very, very much. But, please my friends, do not take your salvation for granted. I don’t know what you have learned, or if you come from a place, where you think once saved, is always saved. Christ told us, that there would be many who would come to him, and say didn’t we cast out devils, in your name. And He would say….depart, I never knew you.Those are words you do not want to hear, when you stand before Christ, at the end of your lifetime.
Be very aware of Gods grace. But try, my friends, try, to not compromise who you are. Repentance, before a Holy God, being humble, trying to please Him, is what counts. And why? In fear of Him like the many scriptures tell us. Oh the fear of God is healthy!
I think of this example, say you have a boss, you love, he is kind, he is generous, he is flexible. But when he says don’t do something, don’t do it. And why, because you want your job. You want to please this boss, because you know, your livelihood is at stake. You need your job. Well, I look at it this way myself. I know God is love, I know He is kind. He is generous, He extends grace, but I have to take all of His word, and not compromise it. And why, because I do want to serve Him, but I also know my salvation is at stake. I need God, I need to please Him.
Sometimes, when I hear some pastors, they act like God flip flops. He does not. When it comes to grace, and the law, they think that is it, but all Christ did, was save us from the law of sin and death. Not His law! Not His commandments! They still stand. Whats wrong with us, if we cannot see that? We would be deceived.
So friends, keeping a humble repentance before Christ. This is healthy, and yes God will extend grace, but we have to be aware. We have to be sorry, we cannot compromise. And I even say this a few days before Halloween, because many Christians think it is o.k. to celebrate this evil holiday, and it stems from hell. The bottom line is it does not honor God. Don’t compromise your blessings, or your place with God, or even the fear of God, to play in this spiritual realm. Fearing God keeps us out of trouble.
I hope this makes you and me both think. How precious our salvation is. Christ gave His life, and He suffered so greatly for our sins. How can we not look at the cross, and see what He did, and openly compromise what He did. Oh God forgive us, and God forbid. Please friends, take this to heart.
Much love, I share it, not wanting to hit anybody on the head, yet so mindful of what Christ did. I am sorry, Lord, help me not to ever compromise. Especially, because you gave your life, and paid the penalty for my sins.
BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM: AND HIS GRACE WHICH WAS BESTOWED UPON ME WAS NOT IN VAIN; BUT I LABOURED MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN THEY ALL: YET NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS WITH ME. I CORINTHIANS 15:10.
Just my thoughts….Elena Ramirez
I dedicate this to my friend Shirley Duran. I love her in Christ, and pray truth will prevail. Gods truth.
Yes, there is a difference between judging a matter, and knowing right from wrong. Yes, I question authority. I question it in all aspects, and I do not always take what someone says as truth, unless it is according to Gods Holy word. My King James Bible.
Recently, a very high profile ministers wife, said something very disturbing. And I question it. Some might say, I was judging. Some might say, “touch not my anointed”. Some might even say the devil is an accuser. But when you know right from wrong, I question authority.
I know what the scripture says. And in my heart, first and foremost, I want to please God. Not man, not people, and not myself, as this high profile ministers wife said. And implied strongly. That is self. That comes from the devil. Self- is always a characteristic from the devil. “Do good for your own self” as she said… Is the way of the world thinking.
This kind of thinking is thinking in the flesh, and not in the spirit. The spirit of the Holy spirit. It is a spirit that comes from hell itself. And we have to be mindful, of carnal thinking.
And it is not bad to do good for yourself. My problem, and that what I considered was bad in knowing right from wrong, was that it undermined God, as if He was a second thought, to be obedient. As if making ourselves happy, was the priority. Those were her words. Look for the video, by these key words to know the difference, but I won’t list it.
But what He wants is obedience, because we love Him first and foremost, the fear of God, as I share in my scripture below. And not believing every “Feel good message” because again that is demonic.
And that was what was wrong. Oh friend, giving God glory, and putting our own thinking to the side, makes the difference. I know the spirit of it, and I know when we try to put ourselves first, and make God an after thought, as she implied, its wrong.
Am I judging, no I am trying to teach someone, who might not know Gods word, to know the difference. So I question it. If I was judging, I would give a sentence, or a fine to pay, like in some religions. God almighty, will have the final word, and be the judge in this matter, and all matters for that consideration.
We are judged by our words. And either our words will justify us, or condemn us. The words that she spoke, will either justify or condemn her. And the thing is, people do not realize that when we speak, we are either being judged, to either be justified or condemned. One cannot just say something, and not have it considered, as either right or wrong.
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:34-36.
Another reason, why I only choose King James words, because there is too much corruption in other Bible versions, where meanings are distorted. I want Gods holy word, the purest form by the King James, that has not been revised. So I can know Gods heart. Judging, no? But knowing right from wrong. Am I judging someone even publishers, who have revised Gods holy word and saying they are evil? No I am saying in this teaching moment, that I know the difference as right and wrong. This is why I make the distinction, even in passing.
I am not judging it, I am questioning, why would you say this? Because it was wrong. When we have the privilege to be in contact with others, we have a responsibility to know Gods Holy word. I know my King James Bible, and I do question authority.
I have been in situations where authority, misunderstood, and even judged me. I think of Christ in this example, and how the Pharisees misunderstood Him. They judged the Son of God. Christ knew right from wrong. And He was the living example of the truth. Even Pilot said, what is truth? No one taught Him truth. Christ would have if He had the time. So I use my time, now, to teach this distinction.
We have a responsibility, to know Gods word. No excuses in this world is worth putting this precious gift aside, so we are not deceived. Yes when you know the difference, you are not judging. You know right and wrong. The devil is always twisting scripture, to make it seem like a person is. And judge not, is one place that he does. And there are so many ways the enemy can deceive someone. And the enemy uses people in authority, and people who are “wolves in sheeps clothing.”
But if I can even spare someone and say no, like I did in this situation, this is not judging. I am trying to teach someone that there are some things that are just wrong. This was a teaching moment, not a judging moment to say…God is always the priority.
Gods word, is first and foremost, and its not that difficult to comprehend. If you make God your first priority, the rest will follow. The blessings, the understanding, the knowledge. But if you put self first as this woman implied, you are doing your own soul a disservice.
Be not wise in your own eyes, but fear God, if you fear God, you take to heart what the Holy spirit says to you. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:7.
And it told me as I read that, that is wrong! I did not judge, I saw the lies of the enemy, and I know right from wrong. And I did it, to warn others, because God loves them and because right is right, and wrong is wrong. This was a teaching moment for me to use truth to warn others. And like a good friend of mine, whose opinion and mine seem at odds with one another said, that “It is kind of hard to defend someone, when they should know the truth. But Christ can defend her, and this is what we pray for as she learns the truth. Because the enemy, wants all of us to be in confusion, and her being in a high profile place, makes it look like she should know better, but she does not in this instance.
I pray for this woman, for she should know the difference. I pray, her eyes are opened. I pray she repents. I pray she makes a wrong right, and sees the difference. Will I name her? No the moment has passed, but maybe someone will show her this, to show her, God is always the priority, not self.
Yes, I question authority, and I recommend you do too. Not only to learn, but to know the difference, but you my friend, get into Gods word, a good King James bible and know it for yourself. So you can please God, not people, not even yourself first, but God.
And as I am about to close, I also want to make the effort to say I love this ministry. This man of God, and His wife. I do. I have gone to see them and tuned in. I have not always agreed with their methods. Especially when it comes to watering down the gospel. But I have loved them. And I still do.
You see, when I say all this, I say it because if we love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, you want them to grow. Because they have access to make a difference in the body of Christ. And really, its all for Gods glory, if we do it in love. So I hope I am forgiven too, but again, my heart is to please God, first and foremost.
And I share all of this humbly, because I am not always right. But God is. And when I make Him the priority totally, I can be right, and I can know the difference, without judging. I can understand. And this is what we all need to do to grow.
Blessings, and love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. Romans 1:21-22
And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit have judged already, as though, I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ. To deliver such an one unto satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the spirit of the Lord Jesus. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us. I Corinthians 5:2-7.
Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy Salvation say continually, Let God be magnified. Psalm 70:4.
Declare His glory among the heathen, His wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens. Honor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. Psalm 96:3-6
For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: Thou are exalted far above all gods. Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness. Psalm 97:9-12
I sense the Lord is giving me a word, to the Christian, who believes, yet lies. You know lying, is a characteristic of the devil. And when one lies, in any way, they are taking on the characteristic of the devil, whom God hates.
God gave us His word, to help our lives, to guide us, to instruct us, to command us, to do things His way. And when we know the truth, and yet choose to give place to the devil, well, we are setting ourselves up. For curses, for problems, for Gods protection to depart, and so much more.
Because first of all, God is holy, and He calls us unto holiness. When a Christian lies to another Christian, I don’t think this person realizes, what the Holy Spirit sees. It grieves, the Holy spirit. And we all are walking, at different, places, in our Christian walk. Some are stronger, and some have gotten to a place, where love is evident, or whatever. We are all growing on the vine, so to speak. For Christ is the vine, we are the branches. But when a Christian lies, they are really subjecting themselves, to harsh judgment.
Ephesians 4:25-32 really puts it into a good perspective. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. (We are called to speak truth to each other, because of Christ, we are linked together, in the spirit) Be ye angry, and sin not, let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Neither give place to the devil. (When you lie, you are giving place to the devil.) Let him that stole steal no more but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, (lying is corrupt communication) but that which is good to the use of the edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. and grieve not the Holy Spirit of God. (God sees and he is not pleased by that) Whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. (Put it away) And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christs sake hath forgiven you.
In the spirit of the conclusion, God has given me. To understand, as I share with you….I would go to God, I would repent. I would see the error of my ways, and I would not want to give place to the devil. I would not want to offend God.
You know, I see so many broken people, in our society, in our world, and you, and I both know, that lying, has not been something that our society, has really tried to implement in people, to do good, or for their best. It is just not taught.
But God teaches us. And His ways, by Jesus Christ, is the only way. Christ is the way, the truth and life. John 14:6 And if we want to begin living a better life, sometimes, we have to start with whats really within. What do we communicate. It is sad, to see, that a Christian, let alone, a person, who does not know Christ lie.
Even here, to whoever my reader is, go to God, repent, ask him to take that spirit of lying away. Make him your Lord, and savior through Christ. Ask him, into your heart, do not give place to the devil.
Know this, when you do lie, you are opening yourself up. To lose blessings, opportunities, and so much more. Curses can come in, for we reap what we sow.
Dear one, if you have lied, I would literally take that scripture of Ephesians 4:25 and I would go to that Christian, and tell that Christian the truth. Especially, if you have lied to another Christian. Even if you did not mean it. You still lied. Sometimes, we have to do things, that prove, we are serious.
Now this is between you, and God, but speaking truth, opens the door, to God, again. Not lying. I just feel in my heart, God is trying to correct you. He wants to bless you, but He wants to see you do that which is right in His sight.
I hope you go to His word daily, but check out Ephesian 4 right now, and let it minister to your heart, and turn away from the evil. Turn to God. So you won’t be tossed around, anymore, like this same scripture talks about.
Start now….before it is too late. I tell you this in His love. Because His love heals, blesses, and makes us complete. When we see it, we are changed. Forever more. And by that we realize, how precious, our Salvation, how precious, the suffering of Christ is for us. Because He loves us. Let not your acceptance be in vain, by giving into the lying. Turn from it and turn to God.
Blessings, and much love, Just my Thoughts,
A Prayer of Hope and Honor,
Father, obedient, I have written this. May it minister to your children, to all of us. So that we would be aware, of the consequences of our sins, of lying, for it truly is a characteristic of the devil. I give no place to him, even here I submit to you, for your love, and protection, to cover me by the blood of Jesus. I hate the things you hate, and I love that which you love. Help this Christian, who has lied, and lies, to put off that ugly spirit, and to submit to you. Help us all, and if that Christian wrote to me, or called me, I would forgive, for you have forgiven me all of my sins. I would walk in love. It is so important, Lord, I see it. Thank you, In Jesus name. The precious name of our Lord, that suffered for my sins. Thank you. Amen
