REPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY……By Elena Ramirez
I truly believe, that REPENTANCE is one of the greatest gifts God gives us. A tool, to not neglect. It is the greatest weapon against the enemy. It cleans the slate. It makes us humble. It stops the penalty of sin, that the enemy uses against us, to have a legal right to attack us.
And its all because of what Christ did on the cross for us. Don’t forget about this gift. Don’t neglect what Christ did on the cross, and yes, even after you accepted Christ as Lord and savior.
Repentance, will ensure your Salvation. I believe in it daily. Like an apple a day, keeps the doctor away. Repentance, will keep your Salvation in tact. We all sin, folks, we all come short of the glory of God. Thats King James scriptural.
The blood of Jesus, will not cover you, if you sin. You will have to start all over. Sin, will separate you from God. So repent.
The enemy always looks for a way to deceive us. But again, the fear of God will bring us to repent. To stay right in the sight of Christ.
Please remember Repentance, when you pray:
NOW I REJOICE, NOT THAT YE WERE MADE SORRY, BUT THAT YE SORROWED TO REPENTANCE: FOR YE WERE MADE SORRY AFTER A GODLY MANNER, THAT YE MIGHT RECEIVE DAMAGE BY US IN NOTHING.
FOR GODLY SORROW WORKETH REPENTANCE TO SALVATION, NOT TO BE REPENTED OF: BUT THE SORROW OF THE WORLD WORKETH DEATH.
FOR BEHOLD THIS SELFSAME THING, THAT YE SORROWED AFTER A GODLY SORT, WHAT CAREFULNESS IT WROUGHT IN YOU, YEA, WHAT CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, YEA, WHAT INDIGNATION, YEA, WHAT FEAR, YEA, WHAT VEHEMENT DESIRE, YEA, WHAT ZEAL, YEA, WHAT REVENGE! IN ALL THINGS YE HAVE APPROVED YOURSELVES TO BE CLEAR IN THIS MATTER.
II CORINTHIANS 7:9-11 KJV.
Blessings, and love,
DO YOU EVER ASK WHY WAS I BORN?
I am older, but you know you can learn and teach this at an early age. I believe we can learn simple truth, even as a child. And if it takes adulthood to learn it, then change to a child.
Sometimes, it takes the trials and errors, the sins, the mistakes, to learn, but, I always say, if I had only known, I would not have done some of the things I have done. I would have avoided, the sins, that took me back.
Last night, I had a dream about something I did as a child. I dreamt about the people involved, and I dreamt about my humbleness to them even now. You see, I hurt someone, I knew as a child.
I took advantage. I am not proud of what I did, and that is between me and God.
And yes, I repented, even then, but it was as if, God showed me, where a gift and calling was taken away from me, because of that. I don’t think I repented, because it was wrong, but because I got caught. Then…. But now, I know.
We reap what we sow. Galatians 6:7 KJV. Look it up there. It made me sad.
It humbled me again, to know, that yes even mistakes as children, when we should know better, can hurt us down the line. But if we know, even as a child to seek God, He will show us truths.
I come to Him NOW as a child. I come to Him humble. I come to seek His wisdom, and guidance, in small things and big things. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to realize who He is, but who we are, and can be.
Being child like, now, can have its benefits, you see, we are called to be like a child. In understanding, and growing, and seeking God, it can take a whole lifetime, to even understand, such things.
But the goal, is to continue to be a child, in His sight. To be someone, who seeks Him, can take a whole life to understand. Innocence, even if taken away, can be restored, as you lay it down at the cross.
But what I have learned, and it just came to me, is that, our lives, however different, are to reflect Christ. To grow, to learn who He is daily. If you have stopped learning, you have stopped growing in Christ.
We don’t know it all, and to be hungry, for righteousness, His righteousness, is a gift. No matter what stage of life you are in. Stop being full.
WOE UNTO YOU THAT ARE FULL! FOR YE SHALL HUNGER, WOE UNTO YOU THAT LAUGH NOW! FOR YE SHALL MOURN AND WEEP. Luke 6:25 KJV.
We can get full, and we can get full of ourselves. Being full can be a sign of spiritual decay. Hunger for that which is beyond our grasp. But that can only be fulfilled in Christ. Hunger for His righteousness. Self does have to die, so one can live in Christ. The old man, the old ways. Ask God to do a work in your soul. Repent, for being full. Repent, for just being lazy, or not even searching.
Friend, all I know, and I wish I could put it in words for you, exactly, but it takes a lifetime, sometimes to find ourselves in Christ. To find out who He is. But along the way, give Him glory, honor and praise. Stir yourself up, in love, for His glory, and so others can see your light that shines.
Don’t give in to the darkness, don’t take the bait, of the enemy. That tells you its too late, or you or a loser, or you will never amount to this or that. Use what God has given you. Repent, repent, repent.
I just know, that is such an important factor. Truly walk in love with others. Be kind, be accountable. Be someone, who reflects Christ, by love. Keep seeking Him, and you will find that path, in your life, as you trust Him.
Why is any of us born? To know Him, to give Him glory. You can bring light, to someone who is in darkness, but you have to shine for Him, and in Him.
Someday, we will stand before Him. The books will be opened, it will reflect what you and I did. This is your chance. In this lifetime, to seek Him, to make it right. You can change the ending.
Like a story, that you think has a definite ending. It can change, by making it right with Jesus. And then just keep growing. In Him. Just get hungry for Him, His presence, His fellowship. His kindness. Then you will know the true reason why you were born.
AND JESUS CALLED A LITTLE CHILD UNTO HIM AND SET HIM IN THE MIDST OF THEM, AND SAID, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED, AND BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN, YE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL HUMBLE HIMSELF AS THIS LITTLE CHILD, THE SAME IS GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. MATTHEW 18:2-4

By Elena Ramirez
DISCLAIMER: These are “Just my thoughts” today…..and I am grateful to God for the rights of free speech in America. That I do not take for granted, because I have faith.
I walk in faith, and those things I cannot change, I put in the hands of God almighty.
They may not be your thoughts, but the beauty of it, is that in America, freedom is a gift, I don’t take for granted. But I respect your right not to agree, but I don’t have to argue about it. I don’t have to debate it.
I have faith….
If interested in ordering my book HOW TO HAVE FAITH. Go to this link.
I base this post on a conversation, I had with someone on social media. Look, there is a misconception about this, and if I can gather lost souls for the Kingdom of God, then Lord use me.
But people are not getting the truth, people are twisting scriptures to justify this, and people have no fear of God, or sense, to stay away from sin, even because of this wrong teaching “once saved is always saved.”
They think grace, will cover it. They think they don’t need the law, to know. Another misconception. Do you really think God flip flopped when He gave the law? Just because Paul talks about not needing the law? He was talking about the law of sin and death. That is the only law we are free from.
See Romans 8:2. KJV. FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
But note how the Psalmist, talks about salvation and the law. It is needed!
I HAVE LONGED FOR THY SALVATION, O LORD: AND THY LAW IS MY DELIGHT. Psalms 119:174.
There have been so many lies spoken, and where the bible they use is even a lie.
There are many scriptures that warn us, THAT ONCE SAVED IS NOT SAVED. Do your own search on words. Search the word “blot” and from a King James, the other versions may not have that reference. A persons name can be blotted out of the lambs book of life. Even in Revelation 22:18-19 it talks about those who change Gods word, will not enter the Kingdom. Look at it!
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.”
Exodus 32:33 KJV
I get weary with those who argue God won’t remove someone’s name from the Lambs Book Of Life. That they think and actually believe they cannot lose their salvation. It’s here folks. I will not argue about Gods holy King James word.
This is why we need just one Holy Bible when we search. To be on the same page with God.
Which many Christians think you are judging them, if you tell them this truth, but you are warning them. Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the “righteous” person. THAT IS A PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE SAVED BUT THEY ARE DECEIVED. Look it up in a King James Bible.
Switch bibles, get a holy anointed King James Bible.
Please look at the scriptures I based this conversation on. They are the true last scriptures Christ gave to warn us. He tells us to be repenting. HE talks about how we received our salvation. But we have grown dull, by not knowing the truth. Many have become neither cold nor hot. He will spit us out! If we don’t get it right! Judgement day is real folks, and we need to get the fear of God, because we all will stand before God. HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL! Get scared, and get the fear of God, because your soul could be lost!
Please get the truth, so you truly can be free in Christ. Repent first, so you can hear the Holy Spirit guide you. Then lead others truly to Christ. But don’t fall for that lie that once saved is always saved. Its not.
‘I know, I was a backslider. And by the grace of God I did not die in those years, I was backslidden. But the only way I got it right was by repenting! And I still repent. I still make mistakes. Which in Gods eyes could be considered sin. Remember His ways are not always our ways. This is scriptural. And I want nothing to do with the enemy. I renounce him, and his deception. Do not be deceived. See the truth. Repent. Renew your vows to Christ. And yes share this. Be a soul winner. For Christ.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
CONVERSATIONS ON ONCE SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED
Yes you are my sister and this is why I warn you in His love. The first thing the Holy Spirit brought to me was to tell you, and others how wrong this teaching is. You have love I see it. But the truth is in His word. Once saved is not always saved. He tells us many will come in His name but they will deceive others with vain words. The wrath of God will be on those who have had no fear of God. This is not taught. We are to fear the one who has power to put our soul in heaven and hell. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. How can that be worked out if one just takes it for granted? That is taking the sacrifice of Christ for granted. His suffering and pain for our sins. NO! Christ told us, many will say Lord, Lord, but HE will say I never knew you. Why? because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. Repentance is the key. Daily repentance even. How many times do we in this world sin? Just by thought or deed. Again I looked at your profile, I saw what Bible you reference. That is not a holy bible. Don’t tell people this! You have love then obey God. Research the KJV scriptures. ASK God to show you. But plz stop misleading people.
“Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
Revelation 3:2-19 KJV
Playing the race card, makes you a racist. And if you play that card, don’t be surprised, if the door swings back and hits you.
Sadly, we look at someone who is a racist, and we hate, the injustice of it. Usually, it is because someone, who is mean spirited, and hateful, that does terrible things to others. Because of their race. Do you see the full circle of it? It causes hate. Which is not good.
Well, the sad thing, is when you start demanding your rights, because of your race. And you pull out that race card. Whether good, or bad, for your race, it is the same principle. It makes you a racist. I don’t care, what color you are. That makes you a racist.
Hollywood, right now, is having a boycott. During the Academy Awards. By two famous, married actors. And other high profile personalities. Because of their race. Because they did not get recognized. Did you notice I am not mentioning them by their race?
I am not in hollywood. I don’t play by those politics. Or rules of engagement. But, my goodness, what a gifted actor he is, and what a beautiful woman she is. And they have had more opportunities, then me, or even the average person.
I have always fought discrimination. But in a different way. By trying to make myself a better person. By being a Christian. By learning the characteristics and ways of my God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus.
I am Hispanic. The stereo types of my nationality, of my race, have always put me at a disadvantage, when it comes to ignorant people. From looking at you, to see if you only speak Spanish. Or stereo type you by wearing a sombrero, or whatever. When people even address, you by your name, and tell you, if you are “legal” you should vote for a certain person.
This just happened to me yesterday. Where I was in a discussion, on a political post. For Ted Cruz. And I called that person out, and I gave them a piece of my mind. I write out conversations often to record my quotes, and thoughts, and this is what I said in this one.:
“Go somewhere else, another country! With that discrimination, that is just like “the candidate you support running for office.” But how dare you tell me this by my name! Let me inform you, educate you. You moron. I am an American. Fourth generation. That means my ancestors were Americans by birth. It also means I am probably more American because of my indigenous roots. This is what is wrong with your candidates agenda and fools that follow that kind of agenda. You are prejudiced, and it shows. I have nothing further to say to your lack of class and intelligence. Have a nice day.”
My response, and I can say it myself. Sounds harsh. Maybe not even the Christian way. I am a Christian but I am not perfect. And I understand the injustice of racism. My parents, told me at an early age, what racism did to them being in the Eisenhower era, and he rounded up Hispanics. And shipped them back to Mexico.
I have seen myself, being denied, respect, by my race, even in the Corporate business world. And yes, it makes me angry. But even though I may get angry, and I may give you a piece of my mind, I still want to take a higher road. And sadly, yes, there are many ignorant, prejudiced people. Who hate. They hate by the race, by the package someone comes in.
Martin Luther King, had a beautiful thought, when he said, and I am paraphrasing, “I want to be judged by the integrity, and character of who I am”. He was a man of God. And I know with compassion, because history tells us, of so many atrocities, that have been done because of race. My heart breaks when I see, how it destroys someones confidence, because of mean people who are racists. It is ugly.
So many, have actually used genocide, to wipe away a people, a culture, a race. Jews, suffered greatly because of this. But they don’t hate. Now, what they do, is defend themselves as they should, but they don’t put people down. They are a good example of what to do as well. They fight back now.
And if you have to fight, then fight right, by doing what is right in the sight of God. God is love. And we are to have the characteristics of Christ in love.
But scripture also tells us, He is not a respecter of persons. Maybe, if I did not have my American upbringing, knowing the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and my Christian upbringing, I may have just not said anything. I may have let that lady mock me, and insult me. But something rose in me, because I know God is not a respecter of persons.
Acts 10:34 King James. THEN PETER OPED HIS MOUTH, AND SAID, OF A TRUTH I PERCEIVE THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS:
That means, He loves us all the same. He looks at what we do, if we have accepted Christ as Lord and savior. He looks, to see, if we repent. For we ALL sin, we all come short of the glory of God. He looks at our souls. What do we have in our souls? And if you are a racist, maybe you should see, by His example, that you should repent.
So why should we be racists? Why should any of us, take that kind of vision, that does not come from God? Especially even now, I see it in this political campaigns of some.
For even our King James bibles, and history tell us of wars, between people, and cultures.
Do I want to engage in battle, over racial issues? No.
And I think we have a choice. But we better look at who we like, why we like them, and are we someone, who wants to demand and play the racist card, because of race?
I will defend you, if I see someone discriminated by their race. Thats just my nature. The big sister, who did not have a big sister to defend her. But I like that same kind of defense. We need to look out for one another. We need to speak up. We need to say, thats wrong. Especially if we are Christians.
I hope Hollywood, finds some kind of peace in this, but, again, I can only speak for myself. I am a writer, I am a Christian writer. I am an American. Born and raised.
But none of that means anything, unless I can write. And prove it to God and others, that I write to serve my God. But its not by the race card, I am playing to get recognition, or to even get a job. Or getting a book deal.
Its by knowing what God says by my King James bible. A true and holy word, that is not corrupted by men, or publishers. It is…Applying it to my life, and to others. Anything else is vanity. Its being puffed up, and it is not worthy of recognition.
For, it is taking, a gift of words, a knowledge that I have strived to learn, and commanding them to good use, for the Kingdom of God.
With love, for myself, for you, for others….
Just as I am now, with….
Just my thoughts.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
When I was a small child, Christmas meant I had a lot of presents under the tree. That Santa would see I was a good girl and come and bring me lots of presents. Now all I want more then ever is that the sweet spirit of Christmas to bring me the true meaning of who Christ is. You can’t find that under your tree but in your heart…in times of poverty or times of abundance. Christ is the gift that keeps on giving. I have learned. His presence is the present… I wrote this about the Christmas spirit. I hope it blesses you… ❤
So your not feeling the Christmas Spirit? You feel kind of BAH-HUMBUG. Bah humbug, see that word (bah hum bug), you gotta quit letting things bug you. So lets start there.
You see, God our King, our Lord, Jesus came to save us all, and HE understands, our sorrows, our pain, our needs. But you cannot see Him work in your life, unless you allow Him, into your heart. In every part of your heart. Not just part of it.
You know how you catch a cold, its a virus. Well, that bug, of bah humbug, is a virus to your spirit. It wants you to feel bad. It wants you to deny Christ. So watch that.
So what do you do when you catch a cold? You concentrate on getting better, you take precautions, and nurture your body. Well you have to do that with your spirit. To get into the Christmas spirit…
For it is your responsibility to stir up that spirit. Lets talk about spirits for a second. There is that invisible feeling, that is within you, whether it is happiness, sadness, poverty, or even infirmity, which is called sickness, that can make you sick. These are spirits.
There are spirits, that come from God Himself, and then there are spirits, that come from hell itself. And you have to identify which is from God, and from the devil. And when you do, then you can see the beauty of Christmas.
And you need to know how to control it, and you need to know how to tap into the Holy Spirit of God Himself. And only God can control it, so this is where submission to God comes from. Total surrendering….to joy.
Joy, the joy of the Lord, is our strength. Nehemiah 8:10. King James.
To be healed, spiritually, to feel that joy.
But when you are not letting God do a good thing, by even stirring up your hope, your joy, your child like thoughts of Christmas, you are allowing the enemy to steal your joy, that comes from the Holy Spirit. You do have to see that.
You have to know who God is, and then you have to know who you are in Christ. By the Holy Spirit….
This is the first step in a line of other steps but very important. So please note this:
If you are not a Christian, or if you are a Christian, who has sinned, you need to repent. And sometimes we don’t even know we have sinned. But God knows, and His spirit will not be there. So thats a good place to start.
Repent, this is the very first thing, you must do…..Rededicate yourself to Christ. Accept Christ into your heart. Remember what He did on the cross for you. For this truly is the very, main reason why God sent Him.
Go to God, tell Him, your not feeling the Christmas spirit, ask Him to forgive you. Ask Him to show you the true meaning of Christmas. In any way, that He wants too. And then conclude to be obedient. Knowing why Christmas is so important.
And the reason that is because Jesus is the reason for the season. For God so loved the world, that He gave and sent His only begotten son. (paraphrasing John 3:16. King James)
Think about that. God loves us, and sent Christ to save us so we have to sometimes, just identify that, and know how great His love is. To know what Christmas is really about…
So here are some tips, that I sense the Holy Spirit is bringing to my attention just to stir up that, after you have come to the throne of God, and made it right with God, in your salvation to remind you, on your part, how to stir up Christmas:
Start by being thankful for what you have. Friends, family, home, health, protection, your great country…any blessing you can think of, and cannot think of. Things you may have avoided, or did not know about, but God knew and spared you. And just let that child like thankfulness “spirit” enter your heart.
Start giving to someone anyone. Think about someone else, to bless. In any way you can. Even out of the ordinary, Impulsively…Buy someone a gift, a cup of coffee, a homeless person, and just let that spirit of giving remind you, of Gods love, that He gave us. Give to someone, that you know can never repay you. But God will….
Remember, to rebuke any negative feelings. Doubt, anger, sadness, even your feeling of poverty, and remind yourself, at this time of Christmas, the miracle of Christmas. Think of the angels. Think of the goodness of God, that God sent angels to go to Mary, and to tell her, she would be the mother of Christ. Think of all the possibilities. Remember God said, all things are possible with Him. FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE. LUKE 2:37
Think of Christ and all of the miracles, He did. As He walked in this life, and the promises He made. And feel the true spirit of who Christ is.
Ponder on the miracle of Christmas because of who Christ is. Think of the nativity. Think of when the three wisemen came, to seek Him, and they followed that star, and the quietness, and beauty of a silent night. Think of the gifts they brought to bless the King, and then bless God, with your spirit of believing and giving. QUIET YOUR SPIRIT TO HEAR FROM GOD.
Be careful and rebuke the Pharisee spirit, the spirit, that doubts, and look at things religiously. Or that puts down the meaning of Christmas. That spirit, that will even take a scripture, and try to put down even putting up a Christmas tree. Or making a mockery of it, by the commercialization. This really is sin, to deny what Christ came for. To deny Christmas or to hate it. So be careful of people who do not see it your way. Some people are toxic. You may even think of blessing them. But if you cannot be near them, or they will spit on that sweet spirit, get away from them. Bless them but get away.
Think of love…for truly Christmas is love. If there is hate, or unforgiveness, again repent, but release it. Let it flow away from you, and just be willing to see the good in people. Even mean people, just remember what Christ did for you.
Ponder on the true holy word. Get a good King James bible, and look up the nativity. (Luke 2) Read it to your family, on Christmas eve, or even now, and let the spirit of truth, and Gods love bless you by His Holy word. This is very important because of the holiness of word. You want holy, anointed scripture that is not corrupted. By the changing of words. PRAY WITH YOUR FAMILY. BRING CHRIST INTO YOUR HOME.
Get good Christmas music, and listen to it. Sing with it. Dance to it.
Guard your heart…To give God glory. Think about how, and any way you can acknowledge who God is, and speak or do anything that will give God glory. For it will rebuke the enemy. The enemy of God, who does not want to give God glory. Be very careful with this.
Go to a church where the Christmas story is being told. With the intention of seeing God, or seeing, some kind of sign from God.
Expect miracles, expect and believe, you see Christmas is about believing, and only you can stir up your heart, to believe. But this is faith, and faith begins when you pray, and just conclude, not to rationalize, or to analyze Christmas or anything but God. But to obey. To obey God, means you are allowing His spirit, in your heart. Then you will have Christmas. See it like a child….but be careful to not put anything besides Christs birth as the meaning….
These are just some tips, I am sharing, by the Holy Spirit, but truly only God can touch your heart, to know any of these things. As you have your part in just being mindful of these things, God will do His part.
Your Christmas can be merry my friends. I sense some of you are so hurt, so angry, so cold, and even hateful, of this time of the season. You may be alone. You may have terrible memories of this time. You may have hard, times, that seem unbearable in every way. But remember, Christ came to save, us, but to also heal us. Isaiah 53:5.( see it from a King James) That healing can also be our spirits. And nothing is impossible again, with God. Let that be your hope.
To conclude this: Work on your relationship with Christ every day of the year. This is not a religion, this is relationship we all have to work on with our Lord. But you will find if you do this, the Holy spirit of Christmas will come to you much easier, it will flow. Love, never fails.
Merry Christmas….To all, and to God be the glory, peace, on earth good will toward all. May the sweet Spirit of Christmas be yours, if all you have is this scripture……God will be with you.
Invite me to your church function, ladies group, or church seminar to speak at your event……
