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,

REPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3395.jpgREPENTANCE 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 I WAS BORN? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


img_1929DO 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

IF YOU HAVE FAITH AMERICA….

If you have faith America, you begin to bless God, because He blesses America….

If you have faith America. You pray for our nation. You pray for our Leaders. You pray…..

If you have faith America, you quit speaking defeat…..

You begin speaking victory. Knowing, you have power of life and death in your tongues. You are careful to speak life.

If you have faith America, you honor life, even the life of the unborn.

If you have faith America, you do not give place to the enemy, but you submit to God, resist the enemy, and he must flee.

If you have faith America, you are loyal to God and country, and to Americas allies.

If you have faith America, you make sure, you accept Jesus Christ as Lord, and savior.  You make sure, your salvation is in tact.  You make sure, you repent.  For tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  You have faith in Christ, because you see, He suffered for you to be saved, and no one else can do that for you.  

If you have faith America, you stand in the old ways. The ways of God, the ways of our forefathers. I stand on my King James Bible, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. And every amendment, that supports this.

If you have faith America, you walk in love, with one another. In this country, we are united.  Divided we fall.

If you have faith America, you honor the American flag. You honor, others, and their choices. You honor the veteran who fights and died for your rights. You honor, freedom of speech.

If you have faith America, you honor God and country.

If you have faith America, you embrace every truth, every commandment God gives us, as best to your ability. And if you cannot you repent to God.

Yes, America, we need to make some changes here, for good, not evil. We have to stand our ground. We have to see the error of our own ways, individually and as a nation. We have to seek God.

If we do not, we will not have faith. Its time to get faith….

THEN TOUCHED HE THEIR EYES, SAYING, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH BE IT UNTO YOU.

Matthew 9:29 KJV.

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….

Note:  

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
