INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THE SPIRIT OF JEALOUSY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Please Note:  I had published this, but deleted it.  I felt the Lord telling me to remove it  but now, I am republishing it.  I have been dealing with things lately, that seem so overwhelming.  But I am trusting God.  I have not been making good decisions, in some ways.  With people, or with trust issues. God knows.  But I am dealing with things spiritually, and it all seems too much for me.  But I am seeking God.  This, is something I hope will help someone.  This I write as an outlet.  Again its not meant to hurt anybody if they read it.  I would never want to do that.  But some things in the spiritual realm cannot be reasoned, or understood.  They need Gods attention.  This is why I serve Him.  Because I cannot always do things, but He can.  

Instructions on how to deal with the spirit of jealousy.  Why do I say one needs instructions on this matter?  Because God dealt with it.  And He is always our example.  Recently, and I will not go into details, I witnessed the spirit of jealousy.  And I knew I had to pray.  I became silent.  I knew it was wrong, but I did not know how to deal with it.  And I prayed fervently for guidance, but also for this person.  God answered me quickly.  With instruction and His counsel. Because I prayed in love.  Because I submitted to God, resisted the devil.  

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

I believe this is the instruction and counsel God gave me, so I am sharing it here.   

There Are Two Different Kinds Of Jealousy:  

A good kind, that comes from God.  And an evil kind that comes from the devil:  

HOW ART HOU FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O lucifer, SON OF THE MORNING!  HOW ART THOU CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND, WHICH DIDST WEAKEN THE NATIONS!  FOR THOU HAST SAID IN THINE HEART, I WILL ASCENT INTO HEAVEN, I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD:  I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH.  I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS; I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.  YET THOU SHALT BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL, TO THE SIDES OF THE PIT. ISAIAH 14:12-15  King James.  

So, do you, see the devils jealousy concerning God in this? 

The good kind of jealousy, comes from God in the sense, that He is very jealous, when it comes to anything, or anybody, trying to steal His glory, or in protecting His people.

FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, EVEN A JEALOUS GOD.  DEUTERONOMY 4:24  King James.    

He is fierce, when dealing with this, because He dealt with it, when it came to the devil.  In the beginning.  He dealt with it, and kicked out the devil, from heaven, because He would not allow any kind of strife, that stemmed from jealousy, in His Kingdom.  

And because I know God, and I know His personality in this matter, I understand, why He would not allow that kind of jealousy in His Kingdom, because it does take away His glory.  

So if he does not allow it, neither should we…. 

GOD IS JEALOUS, AND THE LORD REVENGETH; THE LORD REVENGETH AND IS FURIOUS; THE LORD WILL TAKE VENGEANCE ON HIS ADVERSARIES, AND HE RESERVETH WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES.  NAHUM 1:2  KJV.   

The bad kind of jealousy, from the devil, tries to puff itself up.  It can become pride. It tries to steal Gods glory.  It tries to have what God has, by using tactics, that are not of love.  It tries to manipulate, and that is another sign.  Because it tries to control.  Thats not of God.  

It does try and take away His peace.  The peace of God, because the jealousy will always rear up its ugly head like a snake.  You cannot trust jealousy. It does deceive. It does make itself, a form of idolatry, and God will not allow that, because of His great love.  Because He is love.  But if you allow it, by not recognizing it, you are sinning. 

If one studies the attributes of love.  It does not puff itself up, love from God, it does not manipulate, it does not wish, bad, or hate anyone.  It always forgives.  It does not seek to control, or torment, or be a false witness etc.  Lies etc.  It is not counterfeit.

Love from God is not counterfeit, if the principles of God are applied.   But one must see. 

Jealousy, that is not of God, will do that.  It opens doors, spiritually, that are not of God.  So it must be dealt with.  One might not even intend any ill, or evil, but because that spirit is allowed, it brings curses, that are not of God.  It is a spiritual principle.  Like what goes up, comes down.  Well jealousy, brings curses.  The hedge of protection, in pleading the blood of Jesus, and by departing from that, will close those doors to curses.

THE LORD WILL NOT SPARE HIM, BUT THEN THE ANGER OF THE LORD AND HIS JEALOUSY SHALL SMOKE AGAINST THAT MAN, AND ALL THE CURSES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK SHALL LIE UPON HIM, AND THE LORD SHALL BLOT OUT HIS NAME FROM UNDER HEAVEN.  DEUTERONOMY 29:20  KJV.    

Please note, from this verse, salvation can be lost.  The name blotted out of the Book of Life.

One has to look at the perspective, of whether or not they have the jealousy.  Or if they are the object of the jealousy.  And deal with it.  

How does one deal with it?  First of all pray.  Seek Gods wisdom, in this matter. But read on, and receive more understanding.  

So, let us look at it first from the perspective of the person, who has the jealousy.  

The jealousy, will make someone take their eyes off of God, and His promises.  It is a strange form of idolatry.  They may not even realize it, but it is a distraction.  It is making them, look at the person, as a source of their problem.  They may not mean to do that.  Because they may love that person.  But, when they begin to compare their life, to that person, in their attributes, qualifications, things they possess, people in their lives, they will compare.  Jealousy is evident. 

They may see themselves in a very low light, where they diminish their own attributes, or they lose their own self esteem, because they are constantly looking at that person, and it makes them feel inadequate.  They are looking at that person, and not realizing it, taking their eyes off of God.  The devil will use that against them.  

This is not of God. Again, I will repeat this is not of God!  

They inadvertently, begin to see that person, in a negative light, and as much as they may love someone, they cannot help but compare, with jealousy.  

This is not healthy for someone to do this, because the spiritual soul ties, blocks their own blessings.  Blocks their own gifts.  Blocks doors opening for them, because they are looking at someone, with jealousy, and not totally looking at God.  

This I believe is one of the greatest sins, the devil could try to deceive someone in, because he does not want people to be fulfilled, or blessed.  This is again, one of his characteristics, because he was jealous of God.  

I think for the Christian, who does not recognize this spirit, of jealousy, is playing with their salvation.  Not only are they blocking their own personal blessings.  I think they could lose their salvation.  After all, the devil was in heaven, and he got kicked out of heaven, because of jealousy.

When one sees, that, one should distance themselves from the object of jealousy, and run to God.  Run to the throne of God.  Don’t walk.  Run!  Repent.  See the danger of it.  Because it can again, open doors that are not of God.  And one never wants to do that.  

Doors cannot open from God, if this sin, of jealousy is evident.  It will block, the blessings of God.  It is sin.  To be jealous.  

Prayers will not be heard.  He says iniquities separates us, so He will not hear.  So you have to repent and depart from anything that will cause that jealousy.  

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS, HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  

ISAIAH 59:2  KJV

You don’t have to be in someones life, to love them.  And always love.  Even if you love from a distance, with good thoughts.  Prayers. Walk in love. This is how Christ said we would be known by, our love.

But if it is something, that is not dealt with, you have to see, love is the greatest sacrifice, to want the best for someone.  So repent, and do what’s right.  

Leaving someone alone, is a sacrifice….  

As Christ did.  See, He loved us so much, that He paid the penalty of our sins, so we could escape the legal penalty of sin. By giving His life, that was holy to stop the penalty of sin. Without Him, without His sacrifice, the enemy would have a victory, a legal right to attack, but you have your part in avoiding this sin, of jealousy, by recognizing it, departing from it, and submitting to God totally.  Resisting the devil.

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 KJV.   

So, if you are the object of someones jealousy…

You have to see, that the best thing, one must do, on your part, is to distance themselves from that person.  Because real love, does not want to make someone unhappy.  Real love, prays for that person.  Because if you really love, someone you don’t want to make someone miserable.  You do not want to hurt them.  By staying in a relationship, or friendship, that constantly makes someone reminded, that you have what they want.  

Love does not torment people.  To torment.  For the sake of tormenting.  That is pure evil.  Love does not provide a way or set up a path, to make someone jealous.  So you have to gain strength, and walk away.  

I have seen jealousy in my own life.  And it has grieved me.  I have not always recognized it.  On my part, or on others.  But, God has given me discernment, and I do understand it.  Now. I do understand, that if it is not dealt with, it can bring unhappiness, block blessings, bring curses, and it is not healthy. 

But I have also learned, that if you love people.  You are happy for them.  You don’t compare your life to theirs.  You don’t compete.  You don’t try to make them unhappy, because you are unhappy.  You don’t try and put a guilt trip on someone, because they are blessed.  

One has to see themselves what they have done, to make their own unhappiness, and not make others a focal point of their own mistakes or sins.    

You have to recognize who God is, and how He dealt with this, and you have to see, its not healthy spiritually.  

When I was younger, perhaps, I was jealous of folks.  It seemed it brought out the worse in me.  To lower my self-esteem.  To always compare.  That was immaturity on my part.  I grew out of it.  Life taught me that.  My own sins, have shown me the error of my ways.  I still grieve because of my sins.  

I did come to a place, though, where I realized in life, there will always be prettier, more blessed, more talented, more richer,  more people, who have things and attributes, gifts, characteristics that I do not have. And I don’t have to have something that does not belong to me.  By striving for it, by jealousy.    

But that does not discount, who God has made me.  I am blessed.  In my own right. Because of His Righteousness.

I don’t have to compare myself to them, because I am actually happy, for people, now when they are blessed. I see the fruit of it.  I have joy, for others.  I don’t compare my life, to their life.  Even in the body of Christ.  

Especially, in the body of Christ.  Because that is not allowed in Gods Kingdom.  And so if you are jealous on earth, I think again, you are playing with your salvation.  

So, I don’t go about, trying, to make them feel bad, for having something I don’t have.  Or have. I recognize, life is a journey.  And I always have to try, to be in that place where I can hear from God, and obey God.  Because His ways, are the way, of truth, and life.  John 14:6  King James.  

I know we all have gifts and callings, that God has placed in our lives, but they cannot be fulfilled, if the sin, of jealousy is there.  It will block the blessings.  And if you love someone, truly someone, you have to let them go, if you see jealousy on your side, or on theirs.  Because that is not love.  That is not love that comes from God.  

It does not mean, it is forever.  It does not mean, it cannot be rectified.  Or even final. Perhaps, the friendship, or relationship, can be healed or mended, by time, by letting God into the situation, totally, by repenting, and by loving enough to let someone be.  

Acknowledging the sin.  Being honest about it.  Letting God bless you, because you are obedient. 

By, literally setting them free.  Like the saying goes;

“If you love someone, or something set them free.  If they belong to you, they will return.”  

If not, well it was not meant to be by God.  

One will see, it was not the will of God.  And folks, one needs to be mindful of that, by not trying to manipulate people or situations, just because you love, or want them in your life.  

In that time, of separation, quietness, God can bless you.  God can open the doors for you.  But you have to let go of the sin of this, to receive the blessing.  

Even here I received this instruction, because I had to be silent.  I could not react to that situation, because I could have damaged it far more then what it was.  I know myself.  I have a sharp tongue. But because I love this person, and more than anything, I love God, I managed self-control, to pray.  To be silent.  

To know that jealousy is a green eyed monster, that is the devil.  

AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND satan, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:  HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.  REVELATION 12:9  King James.  

By letting the person go, you are taking the first step.  Because then you are totally submitting to God, by recognizing the sin of this, and asking Him to change it.  The distraction of that person, is no longer there, and the healing can begin.  For you, and that person. 

If its crossed a line though, where there is abuse, verbal, or physical, though, one should forgive, but one cannot forget.  And in any area of jealousy one should forgive.  But….

It is hard to trust, anybody, when these lines have been crossed.  Into personal space, or spiritual space.  

When one apologizes, it should be, where, one is not reminded of that because forgiveness is there.  One should not apologize and then repeat the offense.  Because then its just lip service.  But it should not be brought up again, to be used against a person.  

So proceed or withdraw with caution.  If one is truly using discernment from God, they will recognize the spirit of jealousy.  It may take some time.  It does not always manifest itself. But if it is there, it will reveal itself, sooner or later.  Even in the strangest of conditions.  I have seen it time, and time again. 

If someone tells you, they are jealous.  Of you, or who you are. Believe them.  See, you cannot confuse, that for being happy for someone because it comes from a place of comparing.  And that is not healthy spiritually, for either party.  

SUFFER NOT THY MOUTH TO CAUSE THY FLESH TO SIN; NEITHER SAY THOU BEFORE THE ANGEL, THAT IT WAS AN ERROR:  WHEREFORE SHOULD GOD BE ANGRY AT THY VOICE, AND DESTROY THE WORK OF THINE HANDS.  ECCLESIASTES 5:6.  KJV.  

In this scripture I see, admitting the truth in this, not denying the jealousy, will be the beginning to set someone free.   

Don’t ever take someones weakness, in matter like this, and use it.  Against them.  Don’t flaunt your attributes, or whatever it is, that person, is struggling with, and try to make them feel inadequate.  Because they are jealous. I think God would and could punish someone, for trying to use that against them.  Don’t play with these spiritual matters.  

Fear God.  I do. 

Thats why I think one should depart from situations like that.

SO WILL I MAKE MY FURY TOWARD THEE TO REST, AND MY JEALOUSY SHALL DEPART FROM THEE, AND I WILL BE QUIET, AND WILL BE NO MORE ANGRY.  EZEKIEL 16:42  KJV.  

Just remember this, that kind of jealousy is not of God.  

Any child of God, who wants God to bless them, or that person, they love, should depart.  So the devil can depart. And pray, always constantly pray for someone.  See the enemy, does come to kill, steal and destroy.  Don’t give him a legal right to attack you, or someone else.  

And because I recently seen this, and though, I love this person dearly, it has made me pray for this person, more fervently, because I love this person, and I would never want to make this person unhappy, or sorrowful, by comparing myself to this person, or this person, to compare herself to me.  I want this person, happy, blessed, fulfilled, in Christ.  And as much as it grieves me to let this person go, I will, so the enemy will not have any place in this matter.  

It just is not healthy, for myself, as well, spiritually, to think my happiness would make them miserable, so I would rather, just walk away, and see if God can heal this.  Because if I don’t… Every time, I would see this person, I would think is this person o.k. now, or am I still a thorn in this persons side?  For this person to be jealous.  I never want to be used by the enemy, to bring jealousy, or unhappiness to anyone.  Thats not who I am.  In Christ. 

I know God always uses things I go through, to help others, and I hope it helps.  This is why I write.  I am just someone who can and will be obedient to God, to share truth.  And truth, brings light.

This is my way of trying to heal my own heart.  My own sadness.  By writing about this.  It is not meant to hurt anybody.  Or to make someone feel bad.  This is a deep rooted matter, that can hurt any of us.  I am just trying to be brave enough, to express this so it can help others.  And yes again, myself. For healing spiritually. 

Get a King James bible.  Look up scriptures on jealousy, understand Gods perspective in this, and let this be your guide.  Understand how God saw jealousy, and be healed.  Things can heal, but you always have your part. 

Hope this helps someone.  God bless you, always come from a place of repentance, and a turning away of any sin, so you can have Gods love rest on you.  

So jealousy can depart.

WHEN YOU LIE YOU WILL BELIEVE THE LIE (THE SPIRIT OF DELUSION) By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0835.jpegHave you ever noticed double minded people, lie?  They are here there, and every where.  Not consistent.  And I guess it is discernment, that the Lord gives me, but I see through liars.  

Oh it may take some time, but the truth does come out.  Because they are delusional.  

Things don’t add up.  Too many inconsistencies.  One thing is said here, and there, but then something else is done.  It’s a lie.  

King James scripture says: 

II Thessalonians 2:11 KJV 

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE.  

If you participate in lying, did you know that comes from the devil himself?

Remember Adam and Eve?  Remember in the garden the first lie was when the devil lied to Eve?  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTIL THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEA, HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  AND THE WOMAN SAID UNTO THE SERPENT, WE MAY EAT OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREES OF THE GARDEN:  BUT OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREE WHICH IS IN THE MIDST OF THE GARDEN, GOD HATH SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF IT, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT, LEST YE DIE.  AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE:  FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.  GENESIS 3:1-5  King James Holy bible. 

Oh that old devil is deceptive.  He deceived Eve, and lied, and said, that they would not die.  They did not know what dying was all about.  But God was not mocked, and you know I always say this, but if only they had gone back to God, confirmed what was said, between God and the devil, and the truth would have come out.  

We can still do that.  Go to God.   God does not want us to know different entities, different spirits.  But some folks, go to their psychic, and fortune teller, or they look at astrology.  These things offend God.  

Eve did not understand, even about dying. But she believed the lie, and then and there the spirit of delusion was born.  To deceive her, and you know if you look at just these few verses, we can understand God.  That spirit of delusion can leave. 

We can understand, how important obedience is, and truth.  To God is, in that giving Him glory.  Another thing the devil wants to steal and lie about.

See, if she knew the truth, by trusting God to begin with, and obeying, she would not have sinned.  She would have spared us all the curse of a lie.  But that curse pops up now and then, if we are not in the truth.

I strive for truth.  I know it hurts sometimes, but I strive for it, because my Lord Jesus died on the cross, to set me free, from lies.  The truth sets us free.  And He did set me free.  So I will not participate in a lie.  I don’t want to be in any kind of spiritual bondage, that causes delusion, by a lie.  

AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.  John 8:32.  KJV.  

So if I know truth, I won’t play that game of lying.  To myself, or to others.  I have lost a lot of friends, because of the truth I speak.  Oh it grieves me.  But I don’t play games.  And I don’t lie to myself, because you know what? God sees.  

And that spirit of delusion, comes on people, when they lie.  When they reject truth, when they call evil good, and good evil.  They are delusional.  I see it in our country as well now. But woe, unto them….

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 5:20  KJV.  

The spirit of delusion, because they reject Gods truth, and our country, causes them to be delusional.  It is sad to see with friends, or with anyone.  

There is a cure.  It’s Jesus.  And you just have to see, that the lie, is not worth losing your soul over.  That as much as it may hurt, you need to be honest. Stop the lying to yourself and others.  And there is no such thing as a little lie. 

You need to see who God is first of all, recognize that when you lie, that spirit comes from the devil himself.  That the spirit of delusion, you have, is because you believe a lie. And participate in lying.  

DRAW NIGH TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NIGH TO YOU.  CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, YE DOUBLE MINDED.  JAMES 4:8.  KJV.  

You have to snap out of it.  You have to stop believing the lie.  Or it will make you delusional.  You have to be honest with yourself and others.  

That spirit of delusion, will make you double minded.  

A DOUBLE MINDED MAN IS UNSTABLE IN ALL HIS WAYS.  JAMES 1:8 KJV. 

And I don’t trust double minded people.  I have met so many of them, and I don’t play their games.  People, I have loved, have believed the lie.  And it grieves me, but it is what it is.  They go into denial.  Or they freak out.  They hate you for the truth.  

It takes courage, to speak truth, to live truth, and to reject a lie.  Believe me I know.  Its not easy, but I would rather live in His truth, that sets me free, then to confuse myself, or my spirit, or my life.  That would then be a domino effect and affect others.  No.  

This is how I choose to live, because Christ promised me life, and life abundantly.  And this is what I embrace.  It has set me free.  

And I will tell you one more place, to stop believing the lie at.  In other fake bible versions.  See you are not on the same page, with God, if you are believing a lie, that the devil has used to deceive you.  See these books, have been changed.  Corrupted, compromised, and the spirit you get is part truth, part lie.  They are not holy.  

This is based on three scriptures, you can look up yourself.  Deuteronomy 4:2,  Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19  KJV.  These scriptures tell us don’t change or add to His word.  Don’t take the holiness out, of Gods word, because they are lies.  Don’t use those fake bibles, because you will never find the truth. 

Look them up yourself, start with the truth there, in a King James.  And repent for the lies.  Be free, let the truth set you free.  Stop the lying, stop the spirit of delusion.  For yourself, and others.  Because of what Christ did for you. 

Blessings, and love,

In Christ,

GRACE DOES RUN OUT AND THEN THERE IS THE WRATH OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

GRACE DOES RUN OUT, AND THEN THERE IS THE WRATH OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez 

For those who embrace the “grace” message, its beautiful.  But, remember grace does run out, and then there is the wrath of God.  If sin, is evident.  He tells us,  to REPENT.  I believe time is running out.

I have been seeing a lot of messages on grace lately, and yes again, grace is a beautiful thing.  

But…

If grace is taken for granted, and one does not repent, or see the error of their ways, well, they will miss it.

And I think thats what bothers me about so many of these “grace” messages.  Is that they really do undermine, and really are a disservice to many in the body of Christ.  They are not seeing there will be a time, of wrath from God.  The call to repent, to get right with God, is missing.  From many of these grace messages.  

BECAUSE THEY HAVE FORSAKEN ME, AND HAVE BURNED INCENSE UNTO OTHER GODS, THAT THEY MIGHT PROVOKE ME TO ANGER WITH ALL THE WORKS OF THEIR HANDS; THEREFORE MY WRATH SHALL BE KINDLED AGAINST THIS PLACE, AND SHALL NOT BE QUENCHED.  II KINGS 22:17  KJV.  

See this scripture tells me, that He our Lord, is talking about someone who knew Him.  Someone that may have been saved.  But they forsook Him, and chose sin, and with idolatry, they provoked God, to have anger.  And His wrath will be revealed.   So, if sin, is an idol, in any form, yes God is jealous.  And who can blame Him?  Thats why we have to see our own ways.  

And when I see a “seasoned” Christian, not seeing the truth of this, and actually fighting to defend grace, not seeing the error of these grace messages that leave out a very fundamental point.  I am wondering what kook-aid, did that person drink?  And I have been mocked, and actually given the “silent” treatment. Concerning this subject matter. And they just don’t understand…

BUT THEY MOCKED THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, AND DESPISED HIS WORDS, AND MISUSED HIS PROPHETS, UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY.  II CHRONICLES 36:16  KJV.  

Because we do reap what we sow.  And God is not mocked.  The world calls it Karma, but I tell you friend, don’t confuse what the world says, and what God says.  Read Galatains 6, from a King James.  

Many in the body of Christ, have no true concept, or understanding how valuable our salvation is.  Many think they actually have a license to sin, and thats so wrong.  Because these graces messages, get off balance.  

Yes, if we believe and accept Christ as Lord and savior, we are saved.  But you are not saved, if you break the contract.  If you sin, and do not repent. The covenant, it is a contract, if you accepted Christ, and repented.  So this brings us to the point, well then to ask, am I still saved?

I think this scripture answers this.  

WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE; IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESSES SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT.  EZEKIEL 33:13  KJV.  

That scripture tells me, that the righteousness, he thought he had, but abused by not repenting, means spiritual death. Christ is life. His promise is for eternity.  But if someone trusts their own righteousness, and sins, his or hers righteousness, will not be remembered. In the book of life. So yes, I do believe one can lose their salvation. And I won’t argue about it.  But even here I warn, repent.  Repent even daily.  

You see, we miss it.  I know I have, but I do repent, and that helps me in my journey of life, I am not trusting grace, because there is an enemy to deceive, and many say, oh works don’t cut it.  Well I would rather work at being a better Christian, work at trying to keep at His law, then to miss it.  

But…If you sin, purposely.  If you do not repent.  If you are depending on “grace.”  Well you are missing it.  You are not growing for that matter, but time, may run out, and we all will stand before God.  

And I think thats what really bothers me about the grace messages, is they leave out that part.  They don’t warn.  Many think you are judging them but its warning, and love warns.  

God did not flip flop flop, from the Old Testament.  To the New Testament.  And many think the law, is not necessary, and thats exactly what the enemy wants any of us to believe.  

I have even been accused of being legalistic.  Well, God was legal, when He gave His law, and I love His law.  

O HOW LOVE I THY LAW!  IT IS MY MEDITATION ALL THE DAY.  PSALMS 119:97  KJV.  

We all need Gods laws, to understand, and to know what pleases Him.  Grace, is only extended if we repent.  And I would say, that yes, in the times we are in, this is a grace period.  

Its a time, to grow.  Its a time, to see the error of our ways.  And its a time, to repent.  Its a time, to accept what Christ did on that cross, and to step up and serve, and to obey, and be a reflection of someone who is on the vine with Christ.  

But, I believe this grace time is running out for us individually, but also for the entire world.  Now is the time, of salvation.

LEAD ME IN THY TRUTH, AND TEACH ME:  FOR THOU ART THE GOD OF MY SALVATION; ON THEE DO I WAIT ALL THE DAY.  PSALMS 25:5 KJV.  

Now is the time, to get right with Christ.  I do believe grace is beautiful, I am so grateful that in my lifetime, God did extend grace to me a sinner.  But as I have grown.  As I have searched for God, more and more, I see the error of my ways.  Even after I was saved.  I see, how misguided I was.  And still can be sometimes.  I am not perfect.  But, I see, how I was basically living on the fence, between the ways of the world, and yes God.  But not until I really opened my eyes, in other spiritual matters, did I really come to see, how misguided we can be.  And grace can do that.  And I will begin with the fear of God.

The fear of God, is not taught, its not in many Christians conversations, nor does it come from the pulpit from many.  

So, I do see the problems.  I do see, the deception, and I do believe, grace is running out, but we need to get right with God now.  Before we leave this earth, before time runs out for eternity for the lost.  

Hell is real, and many do not like to hear the Hell and Brimstone, message, but that goes hand in hand, with the grace message.  And many would say that turns people off, I would rather turn you off, so you turn on to God. Don’t get tunnel vision, and miss the rest of what God says.  There will be His wrath.  

HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS: AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON.  BUT THE FEARFUL, AND UNBELIEVING, AND THE ABOMINABLE, AND MURDERERS, AND WHOREMONGERS, AND SORCERERS, AND IDOLATERS, AND ALL LIARS, SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE:  WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.  Revelation 21:7-8.  KJV.

Perhaps, my understanding even in my own relationship, with God, with who I was as a sinner, may propel you, or prompt you to see the danger of just trusting in grace.  It makes one lazy, it makes one vulnerable, and gullible to the ways of the devil.  Please wake up, and don’t just trust grace.  

Today, I plead with you, take a look at your own life, your own soul, and see if you are off balance, with the grace message.  Taking for granted what Christ did for you.  Taking for granted your salvation.  You may be missing it.

BE YE AFRAID OF THE SWORD:  FOR WRATH BRINGETH THE PUNISHMENTS OF THE SWORD, THAT YE MAY KNOW THERE IS A JUDGMENT.  JOB 19:29  KJV.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Blessings, and love,

PREVENTING EVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3666.jpgPREVENTING EVIL…. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez
 
We always wonder why evil happens. But I believe with all my being, if we submit to God, resist the enemy, we can be delivered. Remember when Moses put the blood of the Lamb, on the houses, death, left them? Well the same thing happens when we apply the Lamb of God. Jesus. Plead the blood of Jesus always. But we have our part. Be totally submitted to God, be in obedience, resist the enemy and he will flee. God will dispatch angels on your behalf. Trust God, let us pray. May this remind us all to be closer to God, and more faithful in our walk. Psalms 91 was written by Moses, and he knew the importance of pleading the blood.
 
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-16‬ ‭KJV
 

WHY ONE IS LOSING FOCUS AND JUMPING IN THE RABBIT HOLES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4490.jpgWhy do we lose focus, and end up jumping in rabbit holes?  Remember Alice in Wonderland?  Well, she ended up jumping in a rabbit hole and looked for a way to get back.

We can do that, in a symbolic way.  By getting distracted, by not working on our relationship with Christ.  By working, by family.  By money, finances, whatever it is that takes us away from Christ, is making us to jump in rabbit holes.  Its called sin.

This can happen to the best of us, or the worst of us, whatever your perspective is.

So no one is really immune from this, even Christians.

And I guess, I am writing about it, because yesterday, I just had a terrible day.  And I was not being true to myself, or to even what I was telling the Lord.  I had to repent.

And I won’t go into details.  Because I did repent, but I had to center myself back in Christ.  And I had a good talk with my hubby, who is always honest with me, but straight. And not a crooked man, in any way.  And I thank God for him.  We all should be thankful to God for those He brings to us, but who will be honest.  I am trying to be honest with you!

My husband told me frankly, you seem to have lost your focus.  And I was amazed.  Because he hit it right on the nail.

I am a warrior, for Christ, but sometimes, when I get in that warrior mode, I have a hard time getting back centered, to my peace.

I believe in truth, and I believe in being true to God, but when I contradict myself.  Something is wrong spiritually.  And I know myself well enough, to stop, make a change, repent, and get back to “finding Christ, as the way, the truth, and the life” that John 14:6, tells us about.  That I need in my own journey of life.

I had to do that yesterday.  And as I did, I felt the Lord, tell me to write and share this.  Why?  Because He does give me words, to write, and if I can help somebody as well, then I am back to doing what I should, and I am focused.

Life is hard.  Even as we get older.  When you are younger, you can get full of yourself, and try to take on the world.  But when you get older, and you look at the progress, or the results, it can discourage you.

But with God all things are possible.  And sometimes, well, I have had to stop like I did yesterday, and get focused.  Because things like money, finances, dreams not coming true, self-esteem issues, can distract us, and we end up in that rabbit hole.  Or unrepented sin. Things that we may do, in a cowardly way, or a sneaky way, or a way, that just is not honest.  But really is not good for the soul.  

God does not want that for us.  Let me repeat that.  God does not want that for us.

But we have to discipline ourselves.  As disciples of Christ.  We have to see the error of our own ways, repent, and get back to just looking at Christ.

Praying, reading our King James Bible.  Extending grace to one another, because Christ extends grace to us.  Walking in love.  Being humble, being quiet sometimes, and just seeking our Lord.

As long as there is breath in us, anything is possible, if we are seeking the Lord.

And I love how God, shows himself mighty in small things, to increase my faith for even big things.

Even though, I had a terrible day yesterday, I was able to pray, and for someone else, as I took my mind off of me.  Yesterday, I was on FB, and a friend of mine, who I love in Christ, and I pray for, as well, in other things, asked for prayer, because her kitty had been gone out all day.  The kitty had not been feeling well, and she wanted her home.  The cat usually never stays out long, so it was unusual behavior for that cat.  It was late in the evening already.  But when I prayed with her, and it was a prayer of agreement.  I prayed specifically, that God would bring that cat home, before they closed for the night.  God answered that prayer, and the kitty returned home.  Glory to God.

But it did something to my own faith, that needed God, yesterday.  I was broken, and so off centered.  I had a horrible day.  Because I was not being true to myself, or my Lord, and I felt wicked.  And I base that, on scripture that says, there is no peace to the wicked. So I knew I was doing something wrong.  

THERE IS NO PEACE, SAITH THE LORD, UNTO THE WICKED.  ISAIAH 48:22 KJV. 

And you know what the devil wants us to feel that way.  Nope, I love my peace. So, I will do what I have to do.  Repent, be humble, and listen and seek the Lord for instruction. So that can leave!  

The other night, I saw a movie, and I don’t remember what the name of it was.  But this man said, that which is crooked, cannot be made straight, and he quoted the Bible.  

He put a slant on it, and thats why again, I don’t like to use anything that is corrupted, concerning scripture, because the anointing, and truth, can be missing from just a few words.  And totally mislead.  Who knows what Bible version he used.  I am also careful who I listen to that quotes any kind of scripture.  Remember Christ told us there would be wolves in sheep’s clothing.  

But anyway, that stuck for some reason to me, and I kept thinking of my past sins, and I thought, of how I was off, and I thought, I must be crooked.  I thought that, until I searched the scriptures myself.  I forgot, that yes, I have repented.  Do you ever do that?  It can happen.  But we have to bring everything to the obedience of Christ.  Its just the devil, the enemy trying to bring condemnation.  But if we have repented, if we have changed, well, its covered by the blood of Jesus.  

But, you know there are a few scriptures that do say that.  About that which is crooked cannot be made straight.  So if someone did not do more research, they would think thats it, theres no hope.  But I found one, that states, God can make that which is crooked straight.

“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

GOD, can straighten us out.  He can take us off of that crooked path.  He can make the rough places plain, because He is the way, the truth, and life.

I don’t know where you are, in your journey in life.  But I will say this, if you want your path made plain, if you want to get refocused, and not tossed to and fro with this, that and the other.  Including doctrine, you have your part.  GET AND USE A KING JAMES BIBLE.  

You may have done horrendous things in your life.  But there is something to be said, by just bowing your head.  Crying to God.  Repenting, and pulling yourself up by the boot straps, and try to make that change with His help.

You don’t have to stay in that dark rabbit hole.  You don’t have to be lost any more.

Even if you are a Christian, who has sinned, you can make it right by repenting, and seeking God.

But you cannot keep jumping in that same bad rabbit hole, if you really have learned your lesson in life.  

I have learned in order to be true to myself.  I have to be true to Christ.  

Let me repeat that, and add:  I HAVE LEARNED IN ORDER TO BE TRUE TO MYSELF, I HAVE TO BE TRUE TO CHRIST.

And, that which I add, is that if I do not honor, and respect myself, and others, then honor is not mine.  

How can we get honor in something we don’t give?

Food for thought today, praying this helps you, if you are in that rabbit hole, and you feel lost.  Get focused. Call on Christ, repent, but be true to Him.  Not just in lip service, but your heart.  In your actions, and if you contradict yourself.  Get on your knees.  Get on your knees anyway, to Him, that way, you can stand up to anything.  

Advice, I take for myself as well.

Blessings, and love,

HOW TO FIGHT THE SPIRIT OF SUICIDE AND GIVING UP IN GENERAL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3955.jpgI write this from a place of sickness.  A place, where I have the flu, or whatever it is, and it is trying to take my hope away, my trust in God, and where I feel so out of it, that I could just give up.  But God…  It seems, He draws out my gift, even at the worst of times….

As I try to rest, in the day, I am in a spiritual battle.  My dreams, and my spirit is restless, and I hear the devil, telling me to give up.  And I say no….

But God….

But God reminds me, to always fight a good fight of faith.  I am a warrior.  I have fought all my life to survive.  And I am older now, and I have not met success, in certain ways.  

Yes, my life is fruitful, because of my walk with Christ, He saved me.  He pulled me out of the miry clay.  Yes, my life is successful, because I do have a wonderful husband and son, who love me very much.  And the devil, has tried to take that away from me many times, but God, protected me, when it came to temptation.  Or just giving up, on my marriage.  When there was trouble.  

I used to fight and flee.  Because I grew up fighting alone.  But I learned to fight, and have faith.  And no, I have not met goals even in my writing.  I am so limited, but God is not.  In who sees my writings.  

But thats o.k. I will fight the good fight of faith, and continue on.  I will share what the Lord puts on my heart.  I will fight.  Life, is precious.  

But our society, does not protect life.  We do not promote it, or there would not be abortion clinics, throughout our nation.  

Irony of just who I am, my mother, was not able to have children.  She did not want me.  She did not want children.  She actually took medical, advancements, to tie her tubes, and it failed.  I was conceived.  But she did not abort me.  She did not stop the plan of God for me and my life.  I was born.  My father prayed for me.  I am an answer to prayer.  

So, I appreciate life, I appreciate the life God has given me.  Especially, after I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  I cleaned up.  Quick!  I repented, I saw how close I was to death, and even hell.

I will not take the cowardly way out, by ending my own life, even when things have been terrible.  And they have been, throughout my life.  I have missed the boat, the plane, and the train, in a lot of things.  Yes, I have regrets.  But I will not give up…

Recently, we have heard in the news of two people, who have given up on life.  They were people in the news.  By their accomplishments, by their gifts and callings.  But they took a wrong turn now.  By suicide.   I won’t name them.  My goodness, they need closure.  For their family.  And then there was a friend in the family, to my son.  He was a young man, and he took his life.  

Why?  

Why do people give up?  Why do they stop caring.  Yes, life is hard sometimes, but don’t ever give up.  That is a spirit of suicide, that goes totally against who we can be in Christ.  And that comes right from hell, not God.  

You have to know who Christ is, and you have to know who the devil is.  And the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Read John Chapter 10 from a King James bible.  

Christ, said, He came to give life, and that we “might” have it abundantly.  Might?  Hmm, what does that mean, when you are trying to sort out life, its situations, your hope, your faith, and you are trying, to figure out what to do?

It does not mean taking your own life, or giving up.  I guess, I just come from a place of faith, because thats who I am.  Because I have not always had the success, to say, my life is a success.  Or that I have lived abundantly.  I have not always.  But I dream about it.  I hope for it, and I won’t let go of God, or of my hopes, in having that life abundantly.

Some might say, because I am in my 60’s thats it, well I say, the devil is a liar.  

And I know it.  You see, “But God”….. has stepped in so many times, when I was at the bottom of the barrel, and saved me.  Yes suicide, and giving up, are options, but not if I embrace who I am in Christ.  And thats the whole point here.  

I submit to God.   I resist the devil, and he must flee.  I do it even here, in my writing…. I submit to God, and God can fight the battle in my sickness, in my healing, in my relationships, or in my life, in general.  I won’t give up.

I won’t!

I hold on, even now, and I write, and I let this out of my spirit, to proclaim it.  Because there are people, who do not know God.  They do not know how to believe in God, they don’t know, that there is always a chance, even if it looks like you are not promised tomorrow.  

I have seen as you have, many get a bad doctors report, and they believe, thats it.  Thats the end of it, just give up, take your own life, at your own pace, and they end it.  Thats so wrong. 

Look, my God is not an ATM.  I am not going to give you a bunch of bull, and try to twist your mind, or your spirit, by telling you, just have faith. 

You cannot have faith, if you do not know who God is.  Thats the bottom line.  You have to learn who He is.  You have to know, that He is not mocked.  You have to learn, and know, that He has His commandments, His ways, and we are to follow them.  Not religion.  Not some mans, rules, regulations, and traditions, that he established in a group, and calls it religion, or even Christianity.  

When I see, the distortion of Gods holy word, by so many, by pastors, by churches, it makes me righteously angry.  And I get that because, I know, the truth, the truth, that truly has set me free.  When I see corrupt Bibles, that are part truth, and part lie, yes I get righteously, angry.  

But yet, I don’t push my faith on anybody any more. Oh yes, I did, I would be a liar, if I did not admit that.  But…. I don’t try that hard any more.  I don’t give up.  But I don’t try to force faith, or force belief in God.  Thats His job, not mine.  

But I won’t give up.  Even if He does not answer my prayers.  Even if He leaves me like I am right now.  I won’t….

I will, write, and write, about His goodness, about what pleases Him, because I know Him.  I know Him personally.  

I don’t have a religion, I have a relationship with Him.  And it began, the moment, I saw what He did on that cross for me.  That He took those beatings, that He was nailed to the cross, and endured the pain for me.  The mocking.  The sorrow.  He took it, so I could write this, even now to you.

Don’t give up on life!  Don’t give in to the spirit of suicide, or even giving up for that matter.  After He died, He went straight to hell, to get those keys from the devil, so the devil, would not have that legal right, to make you give up.  Or to steal your soul.  But you have to start even where you are right now….

You know how you begin?

By His holy King James word.  By throwing away that pride, that stupid pride, that wants to deny there is no God.  By admitting, you are a sinner.  By repenting, for even giving up, on God, and on life.  Because there can be a tomorrow.  He can heal you.  Just by what He did on that cross.  He can heal you physically, and spiritually.  

But you have to humble yourself in His sight.  And yes, repent, daily, because we can sin daily.  Many don’t like to believe this, but if you backslide, you can lose salvation, because you gave into sin.  Do we not know, sin, separates us from God?  This is King James scriptural.  He says, He will blot out our names.  Look it up…

READ THESE SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.

BUT HE GIVETH MORE GRACE.  WHEREFORE HE SAITH, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE.  SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD, RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU.  CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS YE DOUBLE MINDED.  BE AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP, LET YOUR LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND YOUR JOY TO HEAVINESS.  HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP.  JAMES 4:6-10.  KJV.  

You cannot resist the devil, without submitting to God first, dear ones.  

And the devil is the one, that is telling you to give up, give up on life, give up on your dreams, give up on your health.  He is saying give up.  He is telling you that with a spirit of suicide for whatever it is….

Don’t you dare.  I raise up my sword of truth, to tell him, even now, he is a liar, and must depart, yes, I feel sick.  Yes, I hurt, yes, I am sad, but I will never give up on God.  I write this with tears, because I know what its like to give up.  Yet, I gather myself up, even if I have to crawl on my knees.  And I do…

And just this week, again, we saw souls, give up.  And it grieves me.  Because there is always a chance with God.  If only they had submitted to God, resisted the enemy, that spirit, of suicide, and giving up, would have left them.  It grieves me, because His commandment is thou shalt not kill.  Killing oneself, and the temple, He resides in, is wrong.  

I don’t know Gods mercy, in all things.  But if I do not do my part, how can I work out my salvation, with fear and trembling, of Him.  When we are commanded to fear God.  That is not taught by our prolific, ministers.  Because they just tickle your ears.  But I have nothing to lose but my sorrows, by telling you to fear God, and don’t give up!

Sounds easy?  Huh?  It is if we take His yoke.  He told us, take my yoke it is easy…..

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME; FOR I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART:  AND YE SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.  Matthew 11:30-31   KJV.  

Finding rest for your soul, requires your submitting to God, resisting the devil, and He will flee.  This is how we find our rest.

Not by giving up.  Till my last breath, I will trust God.  I will submit to God, I will resist the devil.  Whether or not anything else changes, or not.  I will try and do it His way.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.  

Go to Him now, bow down, in the sight of a mighty God.  Repent, tell Him you are sorry, tell Him, you want life abundantly.  Let Him heal you, and cleanse you, and renew you, for a new lease in life.  Read Jeremiah 17:14, it is a prayer, for healing…..

Yes, life, abundantly, by only doing that….. can start the process.  There is more.  A whole book, that tells you how.  And its not just in the book, I wrote, “HOW TO HAVE FAITH.”  But its in His holy word, a sword of truth, the King James Bible.  Don’t use anything else, if you don’t want to give up.

Yes, I could keep writing, here right now, but a little food for the soul, by writing Gods word, nourishes me, and so I close till, God says, write again, Elena.  

Write it again….

Blessings, and love,

In Christ,
