IF YOU BREAK GODS LAWS YOU WILL BREAK MANS LAWS THE LAW OF THE LAND (IMMIGRATION) ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


 

IMG_4828.jpegI DELIGHT TO DO THY WILL, O MY GOD:  YEA, THY LAW IS WITHIN MY HEART.  Psalms 40:8.  KJV.

I love Gods law, I love how it makes me feel closer to God.  How it makes me realize God is many things, including a just God, but He is also a legal God.

BUT HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD: AND IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT.  PSALMS 1:2.  KJV.  

I do meditate on Gods word day and night.  To try and know His laws.  So I can please Him, and it has been working.  I have a sense lately, and I cannot explain it, but I know this pleases God, searching to understand His laws.  As you know, I promote the King James for holiness, for the anointing, the full power of Gods promises, about who He is, and His law.  I probably should have been a lawyer, but I will be a defender of His truth.  My King James bible.

The Lord, has really been showing me a lot about the law lately, and I have been encountering those who in the body of Christ, as well, as in the world, who have no honor or respect for law.

And I am talking about Gods law, as well as every day laws, that are in place.  In society, and in the United States.  They don’t respect it, honor it, or even consider it.  Which makes me sad.  But I wonder how God feels?

It just has made me conclude, that if you don’t honor Gods laws, you won’t have an example or understanding to respect mans laws, or the laws of the land.   I wonder if this is part of our problem?

And I don’t say that flippantly.  I say, that, because I have actually talked to Christians, who really have no respect for law.  And first because they do not respect Gods law.

And if you have no respect, for Gods law, you won’t have fear of God.  I have written about the fear of God on a few occasions, but it has made me see, that if you fear God.  You will fear the consequences of breaking His laws.  It will keep you out of trouble.

I have made those mistakes, which are in His eyes sin.  And many Christians, have a strange, and to me a perverted sense, when it comes to the law.  They think they have a license to sin, because of grace.  They really don’t help people, to be free, because they themselves are blind, and leading the blind, and have chains on themselves.

And when you think you don’t have to honor Gods laws, your in a strange place spiritually.  I have talked to many who think that we are free from the law.  And that is so wrong, because the only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death.  Found in Romans 8:2.  One could miss that, if they don’t look carefully, and I think many Christians have missed that.  But Romans 8:2 says this:

FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  

Do you notice it does not elaborate, that we are free from Gods commandments or laws?

Many Christians make this mistake.  They think grace covers it. Wrong.  If sin is evident, and it’s unrepented.  God will not answer your prayers, (read Psalms 66:18 King James) And it will be marked against you in the book of life.  And when you stand before God, those books will be opened.  What will it say?  That you disregarded Gods laws, and the law of the land?

I talked to a woman yesterday, who was very knowledgeable about word.  She used it in the context, concerning the immigration problem we have.  And I won’t share all the scripture she used, but she tried to use it in a way, where it was promoting illegal activity for immigrants.

We went rounds, me and this lady, in our communications.  But she had this strange perverted sense, that if it is good, (in her eyes, which could be deceptive) then its o.k. to break laws.  Wrong.  She admitted to wanting to breaking the law of the land.  And promoted that to me.

She tried to use examples, but because I do fear God, and I do try to keep Gods laws, and commandments, I saw through her reasoning.  Basically, she was trying to find loop holes, to sin.  And she wanted to bring me into that darkness, to agree, with her agenda, but I would not go for it.IMG_4227

What I finally concluded about this lady, is that, she had pride.  She actually admitted, she was trying to turn the tables in the matter, and would use scripture to try and justify the breaking of laws.  Gods law, and the law of the land, concerning immigration.

I am somewhat saddened to see, our country in the position it is in right now.  Concerning immigration, as I add my two cents here.  I feel for those people.  But I truly believe if those in authority, from the beginning, had protected our borders, supported our President Trump, with funds, in these matters, that would have been a clear signal, Don’t come here illegally.

Many want to argue, that they are seeking asylum.  But there are ports of entry, to do that, to do it legally. See “Violation 8, United States Code 1325.” And when they just come into the land, and get benefits from Americans that pay their taxes.  I just think its wrong.  We have a homeless problem and a problem where our own Veterans, need assistance, and help, and they should take priority to me.

This woman  wanted to use scripture that supports the alien, that comes in the land.  To love them to be kind to them.  I don’t have a problem with that.  If here legally.  I don’t know the conditions to be honest at those detention centers.  But I still believe we are a compassionate country, and treat people fairly.  But they are definitely overfilled.  So the resources are limited, because funds are not available.  And whose fault is that?

What bothers me, is she disregarded our laws.  As an American, and as a Christian. And….How that can hurt Americans.  Yet she could not see how it hurts America.  Or herself.

And this is where she and I disagreed.  Her heart, was compassionate.  I am compassionate as well, but there is a right way, and a wrong way.  A legal way, and an illegal way, and if you do it illegally, you don’t honor God.  Or the laws of the land.

I have seen other Christians who do not honor Gods law, I had another lady tell me she was “blameless.”  As she dismissed Gods laws. And I thought how strange, because I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  This is also scriptural.   No one is blameless.  Every one of us, put Christ on that cross.  She even in some strange way, said, grace was better than her salvation, which to me insulted Christ, and what He did on that cross for us, but she tried to use language as her mistake, so I gave her grace.  And I do not want to judge, because I know, I sin as well.

But still….When you break Gods laws….

Thats pride, that’s another way of trying to justify breaking laws, because of grace.  We do not grow, if pride or sin is there.  By breaking Gods laws.

All I know, and see is that if we do not honor Gods laws, we will break mans laws.  And if I can get you to see that, and honor Gods laws, perhaps I will spare you some heartache.

I just think of how misguided I was in my youth.  I broke laws, of God. And against myself.   I paid severely in many ways because of that.  It taught me to look and see why things sometimes did not go well with me, spiritually or in life.

Breaking laws, Gods laws first, hurts a person.IMG_4217

One of my favorite scriptures, I use in this, is the following:  It is a secret to happiness. By keeping the law.   I tried to share it with that lady, who disagreed with me concerning immigration.  She dismissed it.  She picked and chose another scripture that she believed tried to deflect from that truth.  Which I will write here as well.

But to me, because she actually took a stance in trying to break the laws of the land, and tried to justify it was o.k.  She actually failed in her attempts to help those people, because without the law, they will perish.  They cannot find happiness.  And isn’t that just one of the wonderful things we all seek?  Happiness?

Many of these immigrants are suffering, because they are so misguided, when it comes to obeying the law, and if they see many in our country turning the other eye, disobeying the law, what do they expect?  They will come.

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

She ignored this scripture.  She gave me this one:

THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT.  AND THE SECOND IS LIKE UNTO IT, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.  ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.  MATTHEW 22:38-40  KJV.

Which she thought gave her permission to break all the other laws.  And do you see this?  I do, many will take one scripture like this, and disregard the rest of the Bible, and thats wrong.

I wish, I had shared this scripture with her, I may just put my post on that page, maybe she will see it, even though, I blocked her, I got tired of her nonsense.

THOU THAT MAKEST THY BOAST OF THE LAW, THROUGH BREAKING THE LAW DISHONOUREST THOU GOD?  ROMANS 2:23  KJV.  

We dishonor God,  if we break mans laws, and Gods laws.  And one may get away with it, but sooner or later, it will catch up with a person, and it is better to just see, the error of our ways, repent, and make it right with God, and with those you have broken laws with.  Including the law of loving one another.  You can love, legally, others.  It would be better for them, and yourself if we all take this to heart.

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, AND I SHALL KEEP THY LAW: YEA, I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART.  PSALMS 119:34.

IMG_4662(Read all of Psalms 119, from a King James, it gives a beautiful understanding to doing the right thing by Gods laws.)

FOR I GIVE YOU GOOD DOCTRINE, FORSAKE YE NOT MY LAW.  PROVERBS 4:2  KJV.  

Blessings, in Christ,

THE LIGHT WILL PENETRATE THE DARKNESS THROUGH CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3124.jpeg

First of all, you need to make the distinction, what is light, and what is darkness. IMG_3117.jpg

Light, comes from God.  It is all that is good, holy, honest, and brings revelation. It is truth.  Darkness, comes from the enemy, the devil. It is not good, not holy, it is dishonest, and will try and hide any kind of revelation, that brings truth.  

FOR EVERY ONE THAT DOETH EVIL HATETH THE LIGHT, NEITHER COMETH TO THE LIGHT, LEST HIS DEEDS SHOULD BE REPROVED.  JOHN 3:20  KJV.  

We should all desire to come to the light, and it may hurt, to see the truth in this, but if we truly want to be the best we can be, we must come to Christ, for cleansing.  In His light.  Just think of the times, say you were in a dark theatre, and you went out into the sunlight.  It took a moment to adjust your eyes.  Well same thing, with your spiritual eyes.  

There are principles, that separate the light from the darkness.  And when those principles are in place, it may be hard to distinguish, unless, you ask God, to shed His light in a matter and to show you.  

HE REVEALETH THE DEEP AND SECRET THINGS:  HE KNOWETH WHAT IS IN THE DARKNESS, AND THE LIGHT DWELLETH WITH HIM.  DANIEL 2:22 KJV.  

But have you ever seen someone, call good, evil, and evil good? Woe unto them.   The darkness, has blinded them, and they cannot see.  So light has to come in, to bring that understanding, to see the error of their ways.    

WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL.  THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT, AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT BITTER FOR SWEET, AND SWEET FOR BITTER!  ISAIAH 5:20n  KJV.  

This is why you have to be really careful, in who you follow.  I follow Christ.  I don’t follow men, or those who could be deceived, because there are some like satan, who have a false light upon them, but they deceive so one could fall into darkness.  Example, those who do not teach a salvation message, but tickle your ears, and are always sharing a prosperity message.  

AND NO MARVEL; FOR satan HIMSELF IS TRANSFORMED INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT.  II CORINTHIANS 11:14  KJV. 

AND THIS IS THE CONDEMNATION, THAT LIGHT IS COME INTO THE WORLD, AND MEN LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN LIGHT, BECAUSE THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL.  JOHN 3:19  KJV.  

This is why I always look and see, what Bible version they are using.  If they use anything that is besides a King James.  I see darkness, disguised as light, and because the wording has changed.  The devil does have that capability of disguising himself as light, when he is darkness.

IMG_0465.jpg

I sense the Holy spirit, cannot be in corrupted word.  I don’t want that fake anointing flowing down to me, so I don’t even listen to these teachers, or evangelists.  Because they are choosing darkness, over light, and they might not even know it.  

TO OPEN THEIR EYES, AND TO TURN THEM FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT, AND FROM THE POWER OF satan, UNTO GOD, THAT THEY MAY RECEIVE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, AND IN HERITANCE AMONG THEM WHICH ARE SANCTIFIED BY FAITH THAT IS IN ME.  ACTS 26:18  KJV.

God allows, a lot of things, that sometimes, when you are in the light, or in darkness, you cannot comprehend,  as to why He does what.  It is not my place nor yours to question, Him, in matters like this.  Our job, is to obey God.  To totally submit to God.  Resist, the devil and he will flee.  To trust Him.  

This is our defense, in bringing Christ into a matter, so we can see, understand, discern, to have revelation.  Consider the spirit of delusion, that I wrote about in my previous posts.  They believed a lie, so God let the spirit of delusion, come upon them.

God has shown me many things, but has also hidden many things from me.  For many reasons, I don’t question Him, in that, I just have come to a place where I trust Him.  I walk by faith, not sight.  But if you are not in a place where you want to obey God, or you are sinning.  That darkness, will not be penetrated, as long as you make the choices you do.  

AND THE LIGHT SHINETH IN DARKNESS; AND THE DARKNESS COMPREHENDED IT NOT.  JOHN 1:5.  KJV.

Version 2

But when He shows me something, say for example about people.  It has grieved me many times.  And because of this, my trust level, especially at this point, is not good, toward people.  

But it has made my trust in God, so much stronger.  Because He does not lie.  He has revealed light in the darkness.  

I don’t search for Him, because of what He can do for me, but rather, for who He is.  So when I see people have a motive, but they don’t love me for who I am but rather maybe what I can do for them, then I see, they are not sincere.   Or if they do not extend grace, to me or others.  I wonder.  Or if I see, something that just tells me, somethings wrong.  Even though the darkness tries to hide the light in that.  I trust that.  That nagging feeling. I believe it comes from the Holy Spirit.  And my gut instinct in Christ.  I always look at motives.  People reveal a lot.  But God, teaches us, if we just walk in that light.  

AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, BUT RATHER REPROVE THEM.  EPHESIANS 5:11 KJV. IMG_2967

In any event, rather, then getting into details.  I have just learned, to walk in love, not hate.  To forgive, and to go on.   Sometimes, our mistakes, correct us, sometimes they don’t.  But, when you are walking around in a circle, over, and over, just remember God did that with His people, when He freed Moses, and the Israelites.  But it takes light.  It takes throwing away pride.  It takes a spirit of not complaining and murmuring.  And believe me, I have to work on that complaining, or venting, because it is so easy to do.  

See, we always have to do our part, to strive to be in the light, not the darkness.  If sin is there, that’s an automatic door, to darkness, that can stop blessings, can stop, truth, love, or any kind of favor.  So I try and watch what I say in matters.  I know I am guilty in some things.  

But I am so glad, I know the difference between condemnation and conviction.  

Condemnation, will bring darkness.  It will bring, blindness, and it will make one think there is no way out.  Thats the enemies goal.  But with Christ, and having a spirit of conviction, the light can come in.  To make us humble, to throw away the pride. The key though is repentance.  

Repentance always clears the slate.  I always try to impress upon myself, to remember that, because we can allow darkness, if we are not right with God.  By our words, our choices, etc.  Even our thoughts.  

TAKE HEED THEREFORE THAT THE LIGHT WHICH IS IN THEE BE NOT DARKNESS.  LUKE 11:35  KJV. 

The goal of the enemy, is to steal your crown, to deceive you, to confuse you.  But if you stay totally committed to God, in love, and obedience.  You can discern, between light and darkness, and walk in the light. His destination is hell.  He wants the same for you.  Don’t choose that friends.  I know we all can make mistakes, but some of these things can affect our eternal destination, when we leave this earth….IMG_3101

IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM, AND WALK IN DARKNESS, WE LIE, AND DO NOT KNOW THE TRUTH.  I JOHN 1:6.  KJV. 

I hope this helps someone today.  

Feel free to share.  

In Christ, and His light of love, that shines, to all who call on the name of Jesus Christ.

MY SECRETS GOD HAS GIVEN ME SO ANYONE CAN BE AN EXPERT ON THE BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


POLQPkERTTq%WPR3o%LEZg.jpgYou can be an expert of the Bible.  But let me offer some of these secrets, that I have learned through my lifetime.   I have an understanding of Gods word.  And I am not trying to brag, and I am not in category of being called a Theologian.  

But I have hid Gods word in my heart, and when I need it, I know where to look.fullsizeoutput_1db1.jpeg

It does take diligence.  It takes the desire, to learn who God is, and to understand His ways.  To know Him personally.  It takes the desire to search!!!

For me, God has always tried to teach me, and I have not always been diligent, in this, but for me, falling to the bottom of the barrel, made me search, and I have not stopped searching.

When I say, I was at the bottom of the barrel, this was a time, where I was lost.  Where I was controlled by sin, because I was naive, and I just knew I could not stay there.  I was very misguided as a young woman, and as a teenager.  I had terrible judgment.

But as a child, my mother did try to teach me about who God is, by allowing me to go to Christian vacation, bible schools.  I thank God for that because it helped train me to at least look and search for God.  

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO:  AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  PROVERBS 22:6  KJV. 

There I had participated in Bible memory classes, and there were awards, given to those who could memorize scripture.  I liked the challenge, and would try and memorize Gods word.  And get awards.  Today serving, and surviving, with Gods word, makes the difference to me, and I would never let go of my word, from God. 

But those lessons, I put behind, when I grew up a little.  I wanted to party, but I left God out of the equation.  And sadly, I even denied God. Worse, mistake I could make in my life.

But knowing Gods word, even in the limited amount that I knew as a child, compelled me to seek God, for answers, because I needed answers.  This is how I got out of the bottom of the barrel.  I needed to know why my life was so messed up, for lack of better words.

I knew I had to repent to God, that was taught to me, at an early age.  I knew, I had to clear the slate, so to speak.  Because I knew, scripture said, God would not hear me, if I had sin.  I knew I had reaped my sins.  In other words, the things that I had did in sin, I saw that there were spiritual curses.  

So, I repented.  In fact, I still repent daily, I know how good repentance is for the soul.  I knew Christ died for my sins.  I knew, that He was resurrected.  I began seeing, how powerful His sacrifice was, and it made me come to my knees, and seek God.  Don’t be one of those who mocks repentance.  Did you know that is an indicator of pride?  

So long story short, this was my motive into searching for answers.  And to know God.

The following is just a basic draft, summarized.  I suppose I could turn this into a book, but I want to give you quick tips, so you can in your own way, know God, but also be someone, who can use Gods word, and know Gods word, when facing any kind of situation where Gods word is required to bring light, or insight, even to someone else, who needs to know truth.

But no doubt about it, knowing Gods Holy King James word, enhances your faith.

And this is where, I have grown myself.  Because I know that I know there is a God.

His Holy King James word, has so many capabilities, that I know I am scratching the surface.  But consider healings.  Consider relationships, marriage, and consider there is a word for everything.  All you have to do is search, and pray.  And if you make a vow to God, keep it.  Don’t play around with God.  And don’t treat Him, like an ATM, like the prosperity message teaches.  

But if you wonder why your faith is not strong, it could be very well, because you don’t know Gods word, and what He says.  It could also be because you don’t use a King James.  

This will affect your judgement.  Your words, and outlook:

  1. Ask God to open your eyes to scriptures, He wants you to learn.
  2. Read a King James Bible daily.  I read mine in the morning, and at night, before bedtime.
  3. Get a good Bible app, where you can download the King James bible.  Also there, you can find a good Bible study to read the Bible in a year. 
  4. Write scriptures down.
  5. Remember that the King James has “key” words for you to search where the others do not have those key words, to find the truth.  Even if you do not remember the entire verse, or where it is, if you at least remember a key word, it will help you search.  And find the scripture you need for reference.
  6. Buy a Bible Concordance.  This will have thousands of words, for you to search for scripture references.  This is where those “archaic” words will come in handy.
  7. Consider, creating a scripture journal.
  8. Share scripture with others on social media.
  9. Don’t get lazy, when it comes to knowing scripture, and search.  The secret in this, is that if you have a learning spirit, God will show you wondrous things in His word.
  10.  Get creative using scripture.  I like to post a scripture to a photograph now and then as part of my ministry.  And with all my writings, I apply scripture, as a foundation, so folks, will see, that I am not just talking, the talk, but I have the King James scripture to back it up.
  11. Stay hungry, and thirsty for Gods word.  He will fill you with truth, but you have to want to learn who He is.  
  12. Don’t let your bible get dusty.  A good sign of a well balanced person in Christ is someone whose Bible shows wear and tear on it.

What I have noticed, and this makes me very sad, but I am sure God as well, is that Christians do not know Gods word.  This makes them very vulnerable to the world, to those who hate God, to those who purposely challenge us, as Christians.  You are not completely wearing your armor of God.   And whose fault is that?

When you need a word of God, you should be somewhat familiar, with what God says in a matter, to even be able to go to a King James Bible and do a search with a key word.

These subject matters come up often, but instead of pulling out a scripture to say,  “Thus saith the Lord.”  People are left not knowing truth.

From homosexuality, (which by the way, that word is not in a King James bible) but it is an abomination to God.  

0tcXf%IUQoCwRxTfzpe8sw.jpg 

To abortion.

To even matters of whether or not we should pray for our leaders, these verses, are in a Bible.  Which reminds me, pray for our President.  Don’t you see the spiritual battle America is in?oVVGLhJKTo6LVp1ubRxVEgBut if you don’t open up a King James bible, you won’t get any understanding.

I personally, do not understand this.  Is it laziness?  Is it just pride, to think you can find your own way in life?  But what I will say, is that you have the tool there, but to me, when you don’t know, what God says, you hurt yourselves.  

And I will be totally frank, you are not acting like a true soldier of the Lord, if you don’t know holy word.  The Holy Spirit, cannot prompt you in matters, to even give you discernment, because you won’t learn it, you won’t use it, and you get lazy.  

The sad thing is, that you could be light. You could bring light to the darkness, that blinds yourself, and others.  You could warn someone.  And don’t confuse, warning with judging, because we are called to warn, and love warns.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James.  

Its up to you, but you know, with what I know from Gods word, I know it has built my faith.  It has given me boldness, courage, because I know what God says about some things.  

And no, I do not proclaim to know everything, but everything I know about God is because I searched.  If you don’t search, you only have yourself to blame.  But I actually think its stupid, to ignore, what God says.

Yes, He loves us.  But there will come a time, and in fact, the Holy Spirit, prompted me even this morning, to remind us all, that yes God loves us, but His wrath will be revealed for those who mock and disobey.  Who play at church, and religion.  But have no true substance, who have not taken word to root in their souls.  This is wrong, in His sight.  God is not mocked.  Read Galatians 6:7 from a King James.

And I don’t care who you are, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God, and if you mock God or His truth, that wrath will be revealed.  We all reap what we sow.  Oh my gosh, if you only knew what you are doing, when you deny God, or when you deny His truth, or you mock Him.  

I know, the hard way, I reaped some terrible things, because of my disobedience.  But it made me run to the cross, it made me seek God, and seek His truth.  

And I have the fear of God.

fullsizeoutput_1dcd

I was so spiritually attacked.  I thought, I was losing my mind.  I was so fearful, paranoid, and the enemy knew that, I did not have a strong defense.  Now I roar back like a lion myself, because of who Christ is in me, and at that ugly old devil, and tell him to back off, because I know what God says.  My courage, and boldness, is there.  My armor of God is on, and my sword of truth, which is my King James bible is sharp!  And I remind the devil, he has lost the battle because of Christ.  See I know the Battle is Gods, I know the power of God, this is why I glorify Him, and I will not be ashamed.  And when I know I cannot fight it, or things seem impossible, I am reminded what the Holy King James scriptures say.  That all things are possible with God. I pray, to God, and ask Him to release my angels, by God, to fight those demons, and all I have to do is submit to God, resist the enemy, and the enemy will flee.  

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.  I JOHN 3:8  King James. 

Folks, I don’t know what else to tell you, but start studying His word, don’t be one of those flaky Christians.  Because some day you, and I and the world, will stand before God, and what will He say? fullsizeoutput_1db5.jpeg

Please start using your King James bibles.  Theres a lost world out there, and a battle for souls, and you could win a soul for Christ, but you could also deliver yourself.  

I have given you photographs of scriptures, from a King James.  When you are prompted, look up these words, because they are KEY WORDS and go to a good Bible app.  Or a King James concordance, and search.  I could give you the verse numbers, and chapters.  But then you won’t grow.  Searching yourself, will make you learn and grow. 

This is why you don’t want to use a corrupted Bible, that has changed the words.  You won’t find the truth.   Please search for God, and search for truth. Our world, our country, needs you to be faithful to know what God says, if you call yourself a Christian.

I want you to especially remember this last photograph.  If you want to get into the Holy city, and have your name in the book of life.  You need to know what God says about not using holy word.  

I will share this verse, in this post, because I want you to know exactly what the consequences are, for messing with Gods holy word, and using word that is corrupted.  It is Revelation 22:18-19.  Please note as you read it,  you can be denied access to the Holy city.  You can have your name removed from the book of life.  Don’t play with your salvation.  Learn and know what God says.

Remember these verses, and search!   READ YOUR BIBLE!  Share this, at least try and open someones eyes.  Besides your own….

Blessings, in Christ,

WHY THE WICKED DENIES THERE IS A GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Some days, some things are so clear to me.  Today is one of those days.  And I see how the wicked goes down the wrong track.  After a spiritual battle, in my own household, I saw some things that opened my eyes in other ways as well. 

But I am relating this not to my household but to the unbeliever.  Because as for me, and my house, we will serve the Lord.  And I proclaim that.  

AND IF IT SEEM EVIL UNTO YOU TO SERVE THE LORD, CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE; WHETHER THE gods WHICH YOUR FATHERS SERVED THAT WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FLOOD, OR THE gods OF THE AMORITES, IN WHOSE LAND YE DWELL: BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.  JOSHUA 24:15.  KJV.  

But this is to the hater of God.  The mocker, the one, who thinks they can put down another’s faith, and the one who dismisses truth about who God is.  The one who makes jokes about scriptures.  Calling some folks “Bible Thumpers.”

I have seen it so often in my life.  I saw it as a little girl.  My mother was a Christian.  She went to go and baby sit for a lady and a man.  That night this man came home, with his wife.  He saw my mothers bible.  He mocked her.  Laughed at my mother.  Called her filthy names, because she believed.  He threw me and her out of their house, in the middle of the night.  In the cold, in the darkness.  And we had to walk.  I don’t remember how we got home.  I just know by the grace of God we did.

My mama, did not know the word, Gods word, like I know it now.  She was persecuted.  And it grieves me, when I see other Christians take it as well.  Especially, when they don’t know truth to set them free.  When they don’t know what God really says.  When they don’t use their King James as swords.  When they go silent.  So I am sure it grieves my Lord too, when Christians don’t know KJV word. 

Its so important to know Gods holy word.  And again, I reiterate, King James holy word, that is holy not corrupted.  See you cannot fight the devil with words that have been corrupted changed, added, to, or deleted.  Because then they are no longer holy.  And the devil knows that.  So he deceives the world, with all of these fake bible versions, because the world is not obedient to even use holy word.  Let alone Christians.  I see it.

I understand.  Today, I understand more clearly, than ever before.  

MANY SHALL BE PURIFIED, AND MADE WHITE, AND TRIED; BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY:  AND NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND; BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND.  Daniel 12:10  KING JAMES. 

How dare the wicked deny God.  How dare they mock me, His servant.  But yes Christ told us they would.  Yes, I understand very clearly today.  I fear God.  And thats the best thing, I could ever do.  But the wicked does not fear God.  

THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE WICKED SAITH WITHIN MY HEART, THAT THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE HIS EYES.  PSALMS 36:1  KJV.  

See thats just it, and even among many Christians.  They don’t fear God.  And thats a lie from hell too, because if you don’t fear God, you are playing with your eternal soul.   Yes I understand the fear of God.  I understand who God is.  I have read the Holy book, and He is not mocked.  His wrath will be revealed, and yes it is very, very wicked, to deny God.  And there will be a price to pay, for not grasping that Christ paid the price for you.  

Here is a thought…..I don’t fear the devil.  I fear God.  Because if God is present, the devil will flee.  They are not equals.  No the devil is jealous, of who God is, and if you see that characteristic, in yourself.  You do not serve God, but the devil.  

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

So….How dare anybody tell me I serve a fable.  How dare anybody tell me my God is not real!  How dare they!

It gets me righteously indignant, and furious!  Why?  Because they don’t know what God has done for me.  They don’t know that He came and set me free.  When I was at the bottom of the barrel.  When I was so lost, I could have died, and nobody would have cared for my soul.  Nobody.  How dare they mock, what God has done for me.  They have not walked in my shoes.  They don’t know.  They just don’t know!  

So when I try to share my faith, and I try to walk in love, and show them my Jesus.  It grieves me, when they mock, when they laugh.  It grieves me, even when past friends have told me, I just talk about myself.  No I don’t talk about myself, I talk about what God did for me, so someone else can believe and see the truth.  Its called a testimony.  And we overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony.  

AND THEY OVERCOME him BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH.  REVELATION 12:10  KJV.  

When they even tell me, they feel sorry for me.  Really?  Don’t feel sorry for me!  I just told this man, the same thing.  Don’t feel sorry for me, because I serve, a mighty, good, and merciful God.  But I had to see my own wicked ways.  I had to see what Christ did on the cross for me.  I told this man, he still had a choice.  But he won’t understand, until he turns from his wicked ways, and sees what Christ did on that cross for him.  And yes, repents.  Or worse, when he stands before God, and realizes he had a chance, for salvation, but instead he decided to mock me, and my God.

So why does the wicked deny there is a God?

I will tell you why.  Because it is the sin, that comes from hell itself, and blinds people.  

So they don’t see, how filthy they are in their sins.  They don’t see, that they are delusional, because they denied the truth, and God opened the spirit of delusion, for them to believe the lie, because they deny the truth.  They don’t see that they call evil good, and good evil.  And woe unto them! They don’t see because they have no true light in them.  Because they choose to walk in darkness.  Spiritual darkness. They actually have spiritual blinders on their eyes…..

It is the sin, that stops the truth, from setting them free.  See, we all sin, we all come short of His glory.  We do.  We will have poor judgment.  We will be in denial, until we totally open ourselves up to God, and His ways, His commandments.  His love.  And turn from the sin!  Oh my, I learned the hard way.  So how dare anybody mock my belief, and knowledge, to know that I know there is a God!  How dare they!

How dare any of us, act like we are holier then thou, when it took so much for Christ to give at that cross.  It shames me, to even think, that my sin’s, put him on the cross.  But I am so grateful.  You see, I was so lost.  So broken, so misguided.  

But I know more than ever, it is the sin, that separates us from God.  Its the sin, that stops even our prayers from being answered.  That turns into a curse!  

Because we serve a Holy and mighty God, who will not compromise His standards for us, even though He loves us.  We can stop our growth. By being disobedient, or compromising who God is.  So don’t just obey God, love Him, and see who He is…it will be better for you.  

PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE!

We hurt ourselves.  When we allow sin, when we compromise His truth.  But many do not see that.  They will not be totally purified, until they turn from their wicked ways.  Take the blinders off, repent, and serve God in body, mind, and soul.  There is no compromising with God.

Compromising is sin.  

All I know right now, is more than ever, I am more dedicated, to being a light that shines for Christ.  I pray, He uses me.  I pray, I am worthy though, to serve Him.  I submit to God, I resist the devil, and he must flee.  The only way, I know, is by being obedient to God.  Trusting Him, loving Him.  Taking every word of my King James bible to heart.  Because it is there, that I hear His loving voice, that counsels me, directs me, corrects me, and shows me who He is.  Loving the one who set me free.  To see.  By departing from sin, any kind of sin, so the devil will not deceive me.  

I don’t want to be counted with the wicked.  And any fool, that denies, God, is playing with their salvation.  And that’s just dumb to me.  Foolish, to play with your soul.  To mock God and hell.  That is wicked. 

I think of some folks, on this earth, who have experienced hell, on earth, and they got away.  Well, one can avoid hell as their eternal destination.  Because if they choose wrong, they won’t be able to get away.  If they just open their eyes.  

They must though…See, their sin, repent to God, believe on the name of Jesus Christ.  See who He is, for He is love.  Live for Christ, because to live to the flesh, is hell, and that is what one will reap.  By choosing to be wicked.  By choosing evil, over good.  By denying Christ, the truth, the way, and the life.  By denying God, through, His holy begotten son, our Lord Jesus Christ.  

UPON THE WICKED HE SHALL RAIN SNARES, FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, AND AN HORRIBLE TEMPEST:  THIS SHALL BE THE PORTION OF THEIR CUP.  PSALMS 11:6.  KJV.

Oh hell is real!  I just know, and understand more clearly, how we are the temples of the living God.  That His holy spirit, cannot live and dwell in our spirits, if we allow any kind of sin friend.  You just cannot compromise God, and expect holy results.  You cannot.  

And I guess, I am speaking to the luke warm Christian, who compromises.  Plays with sin.  A little here or there.  Who is not totally committed  who walks the line between the world, and God.  But really making friends with the world, and that is enmity to God.  

YE ADULTERERS AND ADULTERESSES, KNOW YE NOT THAT THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD?  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD.  JAMES 4:4  King James.  

BECAUSE THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD:  FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE.  ROMANS 8:7.  KJV. 

You need Gods law, and if you go to a church that denies the law of God, run out of there.  See the only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death, not Gods commandments.  Read Romans 8:2 from a King James.  See, I share scriptures, but I know that I know God wants you to search.  But also read Psalms 119, to understand how important the law of God is.  You cannot make it to heaven without it.  

What Christ did for you on that cross, is not a license to sin.  It will make you wicked, and you will regret it for eternity.  

And to the unbeliever.  To the wicked, who denies God. Who has chosen to go down the wrong track.  Stop knocking others faith!  Stop mocking, something, that is precious.  See, you have to see, God is not mocked.  And you will reap that.  Like I said its dumb to mock God.  

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

I am done for now.  It had been a while since I wrote, but I know God put this all in my heart to share.  I give God, glory, honor, and praise.  I am so grateful.  That He fills my cup.  But I am not ashamed of Him.  I am grateful, and I proclaim it as truth. 

Blessings, and love, in Christ, my savior.

WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO HAS A JEZEBEL AND JUDAS SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4237 2.jpgIf you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you.  And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.

The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship.  Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.

Let me try and explain what this is first.  So you can understand.  

A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal.  Its someone, who has a whorish spirit.  I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain.  Very self-centered.  Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others.  But behind the scenes, pits one against another.  Instigating….

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD.  I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES. 

The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim.  Never accountable.  Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft.  Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties.  Not good.

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU?  AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY?  II KINGS 9:22.  KJV.  

All of these things God abhors.  You may see all or some of these characteristics.  

The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you.  As Christ knew.  Someone, who will not be loyal to you.  Someone who will be a false witness.  Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you.  Someone who will be used by the devil.

AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM.  MARK 14:10  KJV.  

The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ.  So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.  

AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU?  AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.  MATTHEW 26:15  KJV.  

Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ.  He gave Christ the Judas kiss.  As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you.  Accept it.  

BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS?  LUKE 22;48  KJV.  

But Judas was not accountable.  He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.  

Pride…. One can see that.  Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable. 

I think you might get the drift of this.  So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.  

But yet you do.  Or you can fall victim of that.  Love can cause one to sin.  Love can make one blind.  Even in friendship.  

This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol.  And you have to be careful of this.  Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.  

Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you.  But to God.  If you only knew how jealous God is.  How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.  

Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know.  The hard way.  If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will.  And God knows that.  

God is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy?  Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ.  When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.”  See KJV Proverbs 17:17

And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.

THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS.  EXODUS 23:32 KJV.  

Social media is very revealing, about folks.  And their friends….

If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan?  Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them.  Because you like that?  Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves.  Yet God hates it.  No thank you….I would pass on that quickly.  And I have….

NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS.  AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION;  AND SHE REPENTED NOT.  REVELATION 2:20-21  KJV.  

Anyway….  Its easy for me to forgive someone.  To extend grace.  But when that grace is not extended in return.  It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ.  Because Christ is love.  And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.  

All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit.  This can destroy friendships.  And thats besides the point.  Know more then anything that gets God very angry.  His wrath will be revealed.  

So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties.   I am older now, but wiser.  I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.  

But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends.  And it scares me.  To trust folks any more.  Anyway….

Sin can come in somehow.  But somethings can break chief friends.

A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE:  AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.  

PROVERBS 16:28  KJV. 

Loyalty to God must be evident with me.  This is one thing I strive to give my Lord.  And I long from friends.  So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone.  God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again.  He is my example.  Not people.  

And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot.  That I cannot just justify as o.k. 

If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God.  And depart.  Have nothing to do with people like that.  

So one can now stay away, loyal to God.  It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.  

Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit.  Pray about it.  If you see signs, this could be God showing you.  Take heed.  

And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself.  Then don’t hesitate.  Make it right with God, by repenting.  And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.

Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas.  Their endings were not good.  And one should avoid that.  Look it up.  In a King James bible.  And again, I will reiterate.  It has to be a King James for holiness.  Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.

Maybe this is how you will learn.  By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit.  I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus.  Who calls us to be holy.  

And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people.  I do wish people the best.  I have no ill feelings toward anyone.  Thats not who I am in Christ.  No matter how hurt I have been.  I pray, God bless people.  Lessons of life.  But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning.  God sees.  And I know that.  So I say all of this in friendship and love.  But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.  

ISAIAH 54:17  NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 54:17  

Holy King James word. 

In Christ,

DISCOVERING THE JOY FROM DEPRESSION ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2198.jpgDISCOVERING THE JOY FROM DEPRESSION ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY (EASTER) By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

SURELY HE HATH BORN OUR GRIEFS, AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS:  YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED. BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES, THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  Isaiah 53:4-5. KJV.  

I was depressed, beginning Good Friday.  It was a different kind of depression.  I was so sorry, for my past sins, sins, I have repented for.  I was depressed for lost time.  

I was so depressed, that I got off of Social media, early that day, even though, I do get off, for Sabbath, which starts Friday evening.  I got off social media, early in the morning.  I was challenged.  

I was troubled, I felt like the things I saw, and viewed on Fb, etc.  Were so negative.  So, challenging.  I saw spiritual leaders, proclaiming things like hell wasn’t even there, and it just angered me.  I knew, I could not stay on line, with all the things I was seeing, it bothered me.  It depressed me.  I want to be a good example, but if I had stayed on, I probably would have gotten into an argument.  I had to quiet my soul, my spirit…

Because it was as if the enemy, was laughing, and it made me sense, to know, that we are in end times.  It is a lost world out there.  And when I see, even good natured Christians, so oblivious, to the times, I just want to scream out, can’t you see, there are lost souls out there?  What can we do?  Jesus died for our sins.  

And rather then argue, or make anybody feel bad, or angry, I just got off line.  

It made me think of how the disciples must have felt, after our Lord Jesus, was crucified. They must have felt hopeless, they must have felt so discouraged.  How could they have hope in His resurrection?  They did not know that He would arise from the dead?  Or did they?

FOR AS YET THEY KNEW NOT THE SCRIPTURE, THAT HE MUST RISE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD.  JOHN 20:9  KJV.  

 What about doubting Thomas?  He did not believe.

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, THOMAS BECAUSE THOU HAST SEEN ME, THOU HAST BELIEVED:  BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HAVE NOT SEEN, AND YET HAVE BELIEVED.  JOHN 20:29  KJV.  

How can we believe?  How can we trust God?  Well, from my own experiences.  I just have a sense to know, there is no other option but to believe.  And to trust God.  For me anyway. I have to try and obey, and I have to try and serve God with all my being.  I have to watch my step, and my love walk.  I have to remember Gods power, and to have fear of God.  I have to remember always the sacrifice of Christ.  

I grieved this weekend.  It was a very strange sense of depression I had.  I felt pretty hopeless, to be honest.  I am not going to lie.  There are factors in my life, that just don’t seem to find resolution, or healing in, and I actually felt this week, that the enemy mocked me, laughed at me, and told me, “I have stolen so much from you.”  I hate thieves.   I hate what they represent.  Anyway, hate is such a strong word, but I hate what the devil has stolen from me.  

But I did have a sense of hope, to know only God, can restore.  So I prayed…

This has helped me.  

Today, Resurrection Sunday, I did not go to church.  I don’t have a church to go to.  But, I woke up with some joy.  I woke up, knowing that today is the day, the Lord has made, and I will rejoice in it.  I woke up, knowing that Christ has risen.  I woke up, knowing the disciples saw Christ again, and were joyful, and their sorrow, sadness, depression, was changed that Resurrection Sunday, because of Christ.  

I felt the Holy Spirit whisper to me….  

“Find joy, in the little things.”

So profound, but it stirred my spirit up.  The little things, the little things, that do bring me joy.  Oh I could say them, even here, but I don’t want you to confuse my “Little things” with your little things, or big things for that matter.  

Because we are all different.  We all have different lifestyles, experiences, hardships, and well comparing is never good.  

But we must be united in that love.  That love that binds us closer to Christ.  Christ said, in John 13:35 KJV.  Thats how they will know we are his disciples, by the love we have, and for one another.

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.   

Love is not a little thing, but beginning to love, as small as it is, for whatever reason, can make it bigger. 

So, I have a different perspective, this morning. My Lord, has taken my griefs, and sorrow, and healed my spirit.  

This Resurrection Sunday.  I just have a sense, that small things can grow into big things.  But, I am not looking at that, I think I am just searching to find the beauty and joy, in just what Christ has given me, provided for me, shown me, and revealed who He is in these matters.  I just know, I fall short of His glory.  I just know, I am imperfect, and have flaws.  I just know, only He can heal me, save me, and bless me.  

So, I am sharing.  I am sharing, what has blessed me, as I am so grateful for my Salvation.  You know, Salvation, is such a gift, its a big gift, one should never take for granted.  But, having the realization that I was a sinner, long ago, and just accepting Christ as my savior, repenting, may be a small thing to some, but as small as that awakening was, it is, the biggest thing, I could do for my life.  

I am grateful.  I am finding joy, in the small things in life…..

Life is too short my friends, to be depressed.  To be sorrowful, to let the enemy steal our joy.  When Christ paid the biggest sacrifice for our sins, He paid the penalty for our sins.  Thats a big thing……  I never want to take for granted what He did on the cross for me.  

Because He told me in my spirit, this morning to “find joy, in the little things.”  I intend to do so, to be mindful, to look for the little things, so I can have hope.  

Blessings and love,

I SO ADMIRE WHEN SOMEBODY APOLOGIZES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0101I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person.  It took the blow of it away.  It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense.  I could relate.  But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love.  That did my heart good.  So good I am writing about it.  

I do, admire when someone apologizes.  It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry.  I made a mistake.  I was wrong, please accept my apology.  

It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more.  It seems like pride, takes over often.  And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them.  Or makes them look inferior.  But not to God, He sees….And He will judge. 

So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it. 

With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy.   Thats the wrong approach.  Getting into someones business.  

Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us.  It really does.

I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me.  And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment.  It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.  

So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses.   I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive.  But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.  

Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say.  “You know what I made a mistake.”  They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.

They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.

Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.  

Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere.   But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive.  You see, being unforgiving, is a poison.  And you don’t want that in your soul.  So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.

 I really do respect it, and love seeing it.  If someone apologizes.   That tells me, they want to grow.  They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.  

But to each their own.  I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.  

Sad thing is, because one never knows….

I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.  

See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong.  Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out.  And you may need to do some major repenting.  Because you are hearing the wrong voice.  Thats not Christ.

Something to think about, “Just My Thoughts,” today….

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez
