WHAT IS A WARRIOR FOR CHRIST?


There are many examples, of a warrior for Christ, throughout the Bible, and in History.

We could look at Gideon, a person, who was your average person, who had been spoken to, by an angel of God, and was called to save Israel.  He had been instructed by God, through different signs and wonders, and was, with 300 men, able to defeat the Midianites.

We could look at David.  David, was a man after Gods own heart, and he as a young warrior, defeated, Goliath.  Just with a sling shot, and a few rocks,

There are many examples of people, who fought, and yes, even died for their cause in Christ.  Even now, we see the persecuted church.  We see in some countries, the fight is on, for freedom to just be a Christian.  It is a battle, even though one might not see it, depending, on where they live, and other factors.

So, how does that relate to you, and me, an average child of God, an average person, who is just trying to survive, or thrive in this world, who is a Christian?

How can we be compared to being a “Warrior For Christ?”

In the world we live in today, don’t ever think, that there is not a spiritual battle, for souls.  And if you are a Christian, you will feel compelled, by the Holy Spirit, to want to be instrumental, in the cause of Christ.

That which Christ did for us.  It was too great of a sacrifice.  The life of Christ, compels us to love.  For if you have experienced, and understand what Christ did for you on the cross, and by all of His beatings, His death, His resurrection, did make a way.  As he went to go and get the keys from hell for us.  For He is love and strength, power, for our Salvation.  When you know, he became the lamb of God, who takes away all the sins, of the world, by what He did, you will see.

You will know, and you will be changed.  For the promise not only for now, but for eternity.  If we, have given our hearts to Christ.  We recognize, by the difference in our own lives, how important it is, to be a word, of truth, as Christ is a word of truth.  For we are called to show, others, that Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6.  That makes you a warrior.  You are now in the Lords army.

We all can go through different battles in life, and for Christ.  But, I want to speak, and share, and write about the basic principles, of who we can be, as warriors.  Because we are called to put on the armor of God.  Ephesisans 6:11, So we can stand against the devil.

When we look at the examples above, we can see, physical fights.  We see, the people of God, defending, and fighting, and we also see the shedding of blood, to win victories, in the name of Christ.  But the word of God, says; We do not fight against flesh or blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12.  I highly recommend you read this entire chapter.  

Do I understand, the methods used, to fight for the name of Christ?  No, I do not.  But, I claim the mind of Christ.  I understand, enough, in my simple mind of thinking, that God has a plan.  All I can do in love, is just be obedient.  And seek my Lord.  Even as I write this.

Here we are in modern society.  We have reformed in our Christianity.  And if you look around, or listen to the news.  There is still a battle, a spiritual fight. Between good and evil.    And I know, in the middle of it all, it is coming from the devil himself, to stop people, from knowing the truth.  To stop the plans of God.  He knows he is defeated, we know it, by the word of God, but he will do all he can, to bring others down as well.

But, as I mention the spiritual fights between religions, soldier of the Lord, be aware, of cults, and religion.  Beware, of wolves in sheep clothing.  Be aware of anything, that adds on, or takes away from the word of God.

This is your responsibility, to know what Gods word says, and to tell others, if they are following false doctrine. and even here, I will interject, and say use the King James Bible.  Other versions, have been compromised.  (read my blog post)  The Conspiracy between the King James Bible, and the NIV bible.

As a warrior for Christ, more then ever, one must be aware of the tactics of the devil. One must know their adversary to know and to avoid the trappings of the devil.  When we slip up, and act like the world, yes, there is forgiveness.  But, one loses spiritual strength, wisdom, understanding, and yes even victories.  For we reap what we sow.

Right now, the battle is too close for comfort, I sense, and I know that I know, Christians are being called to Holiness.  God is Holy.  He is our commander and chief, and we must get in line, so to speak spiritually.  We must be willing….

We may not fight a physical fight, but we can fight a good fight of faith.  On our knees.

I see, the role, of a warrior for Christ, in a different light.  Perhaps, as Christ intended it. For he called us to love our enemies.  To forgive others.  To walk in love, and to be that kind of a person, who was compassionate, caring, and giving.  He told us, that we would be known by our love, for one another.

You know, for most of my life, I have been a warrior.  I grew up, fighting to survive, in the streets of Denver.  I am a woman, but I learned as a young girl, how to enforce, a right hook, if you get my drift.  I have the battle scars, of having to get my nose fixed, and just seeing the evidence, of being a fighter, in my own life.  It took a long time, after I became a Christian, to use other skills, besides fighting.  I learned.

It taught me a lot.  Even though, I do not advocate, physical fighting.  It taught me to stand up for my rights.  It taught me, to have courage, even if you are afraid.  It taught me, that good, can overcome evil, by fighting.

I fight a different fight, now that I am older.  But, I need to clarify something, that I have learned.  And that is this.  That the Battle is the Lords.  II Chronicles 20:15.  Be not afraid, nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but Gods.

According to His word. Whatever we are going through, we can fight a different kind of fight, by the word of God, by prayer, by obedience to God, and His principles, and commandments.  By praising God, we can win, just being in His presence by praise.  What a difference praise makes.  And we can win our battles.   I think, because I see in the spiritual realm so much clearer now, I know, God can give us the victories.

We are in a time right now, where it is evident, there will be more battles, and more fights in the name of the Lord.  Being courageous, for Christ, takes a commitment to Him, more then ever.  It takes strength, to witness to someone who Christ is.   To share your testimony.  To speak, up, to be bold, to care, to love, to give….To just walk in love, even with your enemies.

Anyone, who fights against the cause of Christ is an enemy.  Sadly, because so many are denied, any kind of religious freedom, to share Christ, in our public forums, they are being used by the devil.

But we are called to love.  We are called to love our enemies.  We are as Christians to be lights that shine.  We may be called to do things, differently, or called to get out of our comfort zones.  Daily, we have to surrender to Christ.  And seek Him, for guidance, for wisdom, and yes, his protection.

Dear one.  Are you a warrior for Christ?

Just my thoughts, with love, in Christ.  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope and Honor

Father, I praise you, I willingly bring my attention to you, and your ways.  Lord, it is a battle.  And there is no peace, to the wicked.  But Lord, with you, there is peace.  There is a way, there is abundance of life.  Lord, it took me a long time, to realize, and to put my battles in your hands.  Lord, I do see myself as a warrior for Christ, but in a different light.  I know, I can win no battle, by trying to enforce, or make anyone, see, your truth.  With tactis of the flesh, or tactics that are not of love.  I release myself, to the Holy spirit, to be used by you, my Lord.  But that all I would do, would be a reflection of your love.  I do not want to point the finger at anyone, or to even cause division, because of my beliefs in you.  By judging, etc.  Lord, I pray the victories, I have, would be done in love.  With others, and more because of you.  Lord, thank you, for the victories, I do have, so I can say, “Look what the Lord has done for me. ”  Thank you Lord, for protection, and power, understanding, discernment, you give to me, to fight off my enemies, because of your great love, and protection.  By releasing angels, and by doing a new thing, in Jesus Christ, thank you.  And I plead the blood of Jesus.  Amen

PROSPERITY PASTORS QUIT PREACHING PROSPERITY~PREACH THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST


Warning and some thoughts:  This post, is the hardest thing, I have had to write lately.  I have been in ministry for over 20 years.  On Gods good side.  Yet, I know, I have made mistakes.  I have sinned.  But I have repented.  I did what I saw others do in ministry.  Do I want to judge anybody? No.  For, I know, I will offend someone.  It will convict, or condemn, someone who is using the gospel, for their own monetary purposes.  For those who do have an anointing, in prosperity, and share ALL of the gospel, of Christ, it is not meant for them.  But for those, who are manipulators, Christ will overturn the tables.  You are warned.  But I thank God, for his grace, and forgiveness.  I pray, this will just help someone in ministry, for the right reason.  The reasons of God.  And why He sent His son, Jesus Christ for us.  

AND THEY CAME TO JERUSALEM: AND JESUS WENT INTO THE TEMPLE, AND BEGAN TO CAST OUT THEM THAT SOLD AND BOUGHT IN THE TEMPLE, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES OF THE MONEY CHANGERS AND THE SEATS OF THEM THAT SOLD DOVES:  AND WOULD NOT SUFFER (PERMIT) THAT ANY MAN SHOULD CARRY ANY VESSEL THROUGH THE TEMPLE.  AND HE TAUGHT SAYING UNTO THEM, IS IT NOT WRITTEN MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED OF ALL NATIONS THE HOUSE OF PRAYER?  BUT YOU HAVE MADE IT A DEN OF THIEVES.  MARK 11:15-17

I think this is going to be, one of the most difficult messages, I have ever wrote.  More then ever, I know there is a God.  I also know, what His word says about, talking about, or putting down His people.  I know, that He corrects those He loves, to be obedient.  I know now, to be obedient.  So here goes….

Wow….I pray, I bring truth and love to this message, because I feel it stirring in my heart, so very, very much.  Its the Holy Spirit, just prompting me.  I can’t walk away, from this message.  Because it is needed.  The body of Christ needs to see this.  Leaders need to see this.  And, all I can say, before I write this, as a prayer, and even in love, I pray, not to judge anyone, because I am not naming any names.  Nor is it directed to anyone I know.  For I have, had to judge myself in this matter, as well.  But, I feel like God, wants to use me, to speak a word of truth…..

This is to the leaders of the church.  This is a message, to anyone who is in ministry, for the wrong reasons.  This is to awaken people, the body of Christ, and the lost, to know, the prosperity message, is not the true message of Jesus Christ, in part….

For the truth of the matter is, that there are some very smart, intelligent, knowledgeable, preachers, who may even have an anointing, to speak of prosperity, but they have taken that banner, and left the truth of Christ behind.  They know, Gods principles, and they have an understanding of Gods expectations, etc.  For prosperity, but they leave out the most important part, in acknowledging, and making mention, that Salvation, should be the first priority.

People, are turned off, with the prosperity message.  They are tired, of seeing you ask for money, all the time.  They are tired, of seeing you gloat, and bragging about the money you got.  They are tired, of knowing truth, themselves, and having an expectation, of you, to speak love, to speak of who Christ is, to speak, what Christ told us to do, and that is to love one another, and loving God first.  And instead, you ask for money.  And people leave their churches, getting a lecture, from their pastor, about giving.

And sadly, many do not go to church, for that very reason.  They do not hear a good word, of salvation or hope.  Or instruction, to live a godly life.  They hear, give your money, its biblical, and thats all they hear.  No wonder there is so many atheists.  No wonder, they even hate us.  Because, some have distorted the truth.  Something has to change.  Look at our world, see the lost, they need to know truth, and love, and no one is reaching out to them, because the prosperity pastors, only care about money.  Or they only care, about their agenda.  Whatever that may be.

For, some, pastors, leaders, have fashioned themselves, to put a slant on Gods word, to take part of the scripture, to use it, for prosperity, and like little lambs, the people, do give to their churches etc.   And I am NOT saying, don’t tithe, don’t give offerings either. You are called to!  It is Biblical to give.  Malachi three tells us to give.  God even tells us to be obedient in this.  So read it to know, God will bless you, as you give.

But there is a balance in this.  And that is, people, need to change, their souls, to know Christ first.  To receive Salvation.  Hell is a real place, and no one is warning them.  Its not a priority.  We are all going to die, if we don’t get it right now, many souls, will be lost.  That should be first on the agenda.  Not some feel good message.

And some ministries, use the prosperity message, to entice the people, but they are leaving them high and dry.  Because they may know scriptures about prosperity, but they have no idea, how to be a light, to others, or to share the truth, of Jesus Christ.  About healing, or love, or anything, that God wants us to know….

The power of God is missing.  Churches are dead, the spirit, does not flow.  The atmosphere, is stagnant.  Everyone is talking, sharing, and nothing wrong with that, but this is Gods house.  And Revival, and the Holy Spirit, are put off to the side.  No one is quiet, in prayer.  The altar is a place for the band, not for searching for God.  No one is praying at the altars.  Healings, and altar calls, are not prevalent.  Its all standard, religion.  Not relationship…..

And is this true about all churches?  No, in fact, I have been to quite a few, and a lot of this is not prevalent.  But I have seen the difference, in many churches.  You can see, you know.  This is not being judgmental, this is how it is. In a lot of churches.  Why? Whats missing?  What stops God from meeting us even at church?  Is it the prosperity message?  Greed. etc.

And even now, as I am listening to Christian, television, and writing, ironically, the timing of this brings truth. For, I just heard a pastor just say, “you can get what you want, by a dollar and a holler!  Excuse me, this is all so, perverted.  The truth, is just missing….Now another pastor, is bringing perspective, praise God, he is saying seek God first.

Folks, all I know, is that we have to change, if we want to see God working in our lives.  What is our motive?

Now I know, by now, I am  ticking some people off.  But, I tell you this, not to judge anyone, because I know, money is needed for ministry.  It is needed to run, a good ministry.  But how is the money used?  Does it help people?  Or is it just helping, the one who is collecting it?

Years ago, I was shocked by the realization, that many ministries do not help others.  I was a Christian leader, in a place, where I could help people.  And I would communicate with the public.  And could communicate with ministries.  There were many, times, when communicating, I would see a true need to help someone, financially.  So, I would use, the data base I had to communicate with churches, and leaders, to see, if I could get them to help these needy people.  And they would not.  These were high profile ministries, and no one would help.  That bothered me.

Now, I have to be completely honest, here, because I could be judged in this, myself.  Years ago, when I first started my ministry, and I am talking about my history, as a writer, I would ask for donations.  I figured, I have to make a living too.  Here I was, writing my Poetry of Hope, my Messages of Hope, and I know, they ministered to many people.  People would tell me they ministered, to them. I also would pray for people.  I would write prayer cards for their need, based on scripture, so they could have prayers to pray.  With the word of God.  I would do the research. I would take the time, because I know, where to go to search for Gods word.

So, I thought, it was o.k. to ask for donations.  I turned off, so many, many, many people off.  That I would get, rude letters, insulting letters, and comments, that made me stop, and think what was I doing?

I finally went to the Lord, and just told him, I don’t want people to see me asking for money.  I want them to see you.  Not my will be done, but yours.  I let it go.  I repented. So I stopped.  Asking anyone for a donation, or money.

In fact, I would say its been many years, since, I asked for any money.  Check out my recent blogs, they have no, mention of money.  A couple of my older web pages may.  But, what I did, was I stopped, asking for money.

And now, I write, and I try to search for a job, but no one, is just handing them out right now.  For Christian writers.  But, I still write.  Because this is what I am called  to do, this is my gift and calling.  And no one is sending me any money.  I have to write, by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.  And I have even wrote on Prosperity, see my posts.  https://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com/people-have-asked-me/.  It is the link, on the top of my blog.  But no where, do I ask for money in this, nor do I contradict, what I write here.  Its about being obedient to God first.

How do I live?  Well, by the grace of God. God provides through my husband, and his retirement.  He served by working, and takes cares of my needs, and my ministry needs, because he sees the need, to help people, by what I write.  So, he supports me.  And it is not easy….

And so here, I am, trying to work honest, trying to present things, before the Lord, and people, honest, but I have to tell you, I am so glad, I quit asking for money!  That was the best thing, God could ever do, to correct me.  Because it changed me!

Something has changed in my spirit, concerning God, concerning His truth, concerning, even money.  I have a different perspective.  Its all about Christ!  Its all about saving souls.  Its about helping your fellow man, or brother or sister.  Its about love, forgiveness….

I try to use, what I have learned, what I have gone through, and always based on the Lords word, I try to help others.  By what I write.  I plant seeds of Gods truth, not financially, but if I could I would.  You see, if I got a job, writing, I would help others.  I would use that gift, to bring light.

I just again, do not want to judge others, because I know money is needed, to run ministries.  But, I pray, that pastors, even those hurting, take to heart, what others see.

Take to heart, what God really, wants you to share.  Its about God, it is about love, and what Christ did in that love, and it is about how great the sacrifice was, that Christ did for you, and for me. Its about his suffering, on that cross, and how He took our sins!  He took the penalty of the curse for us!  He died, and went and took the keys from the devil, so we can be made free, not only now, but for eternity!!!!!

Pastors, please, for the sake of your salvation, and the sake of others, quit putting a slant, on prosperity, and put the truth on the table.  Quit taking a word from God, and trying to make it a “gimmick”  like the righteousness of God, that turns into your own “self-righteousness”  Its about what Christ did for us!  Preach the gospel!!!

God is going to judge the leaders.  He is going to judge us all.  But, Pastors, you have a certain responsibility, that you will be accountable to God for.  You do not want to be ashamed, when you stand before him.  Please, change this, for your record, and for others.  Preach the gospel…of Jesus Christ.

And to whoever is reading this, share it with your leaders, your not judging them, your reminding them, what they are there for, to share the gospel.  Go to the top of this message, and copy and paste this link to your e-mails, and on your facebook pages.  Please and thank you….So others can see this.  To bring the lost, to be a beacon of light, that expresses, Christ, is the way, the only way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.

I am so glad, God corrected, and changed me.  It truly gave me a “true” perspective, as to what He wants.  He wants us to put him first.  I pray, I always bring Him, honor, glory, and praise, in what I do.

And dear one, and I say this in love.  If you have done this, if you have made the “prosperity message” your main message, just see the error of your ways.  Like I did.  I wasn’t ever trying to put a slant on prosperity.  But, the devil uses our mistakes, even though, we think we have good intentions.  If it is not right in the sight of God, we can get off track. Just see, what a good God we have.

And know this, you will be tempted, you will always be tempted.  Thats what happens in our lives.  But, if you can get free from this, prosperity message, and see the error of your ways.  To change your main message, you will be a soul winner for Christ, that will do great and mighty things.  Thats what I believe for me too.  No matter what the devil throws at us, no weapon, will prosper.  But, we have to do it Gods way.  I know….

This is my Prayer of Hope…..Not to judge anyone, but to bring truth.  Be it, what it is.  God is love.  Seek ye first, the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all things will be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33

Blessings, and much love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, for your correction, I thank you for giving understanding.  I thank you, that you care for me, and my family, and our needs.  I thank you, that you changed my heart, concerning donations, and that by your spirit, I am now led.  I do not judge anyone here, but I do speak truth, and what you have required of me.  Lord, maybe thats why I can write this, to other pastors, and to plead with them, to be careful, not to get caught up in the prosperity message, but to put you first.  Lord, we all need help, we all need to live, in this world.  But when it comes to the gospel, the message of Christ, should, and needs to be front, and center, not the prosperity message.  So help our world, help pastors, help us all, because many do need, help in their finances.  You see that.  But knowing you.  As we seek you, first, and your righteousness, all things will be added unto us.  Thank you Lord, in Jesus name.  Amen

I TRADED A KIDNEY STONE FOR A MUSTARD SEED OF FAITH


Some seeds may look the same....but which is the true seed of Faith? Only the blood of Jesus can distinguish which faith is true..........

It does sound like a strange title.  But it is true.  And only by the blood of Jesus, can I even write this.  Health, is a blessing, that sometimes, we can take for granted.  I never try to take anything for granted.  But one, can pick up habits in health, spiritually, and physically, that really are not good for a person. In the physical department, I have not been exercising as much as I should, and I have not been drinking or eating, as good, as I should as well.  For I have been lately, consuming, coffee, and iced tea, in great quantities.

And in the spiritual sense?  To some, it may be getting cold, indifferent, in their walk with God.  Taking for granted their salvation.  Not reading the Word of God, the Bible.  Falling back into old habits. Old sins…Being lukewarm.  Do you not know, that God says He will spit us out, if we are lukewarm?  I KNOW THY WORKS THAT THOU ARE NEITHER COLD NOR HOT:  I WOULD KNOW IF YOU WERE COLD OR HOT.  SO THEN BECAUSE YOU ARE LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOR HOT, I WILL SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH! BECAUSE THOU SAYS, I AM RICH AND INCREASED WITH GOODS, AND HAVE NEED OF NOTHING AND KNOWS NOT THAT THOU ART WRETCHED AND MISERABLE AND POOR, AND BLIND AND NAKED.  REVELATION 3:15-17,

For me, maybe I have been trying to do something, I am not authorized to do.  I don’t know.  I want to be humble, as a servant of God.  But maybe, I have to take a look at myself in this, or rather, let God look at this, so I can get some understanding.  So I do seek him, for answers.  I have to commit MORE to God in prayer, and if He wants to use that, I know He will tell me, and then I will write more about it.  So, was I in a spiritual battle?  And I did not even know it?  hmmm.

All I know, and I am not a know it all, but when you have a physical illness, that came out of no-where, like I did, this past Friday, you have to look at yourself. You have to look to God in faith.

For the most part of my life, besides having an occasional cold, or bug, whatever, I have been pretty healthy.  A few years ago, I did go for a check up, and they got concerned, and wanted to tell me I had cancer.  That freaked me out, but I stood on the word of God, and did not budge.  One scripture, and I have shared this in my testimony, was Jeremiah 17:14.  Heal me Oh Lord, and I will be healed.  Save me, and I will be saved.  For you are the only one, I will praise. This scripture, really sustained me, and comforted me, when I would go back and forth to the doctor, and for almost two years, I was in great concern.  Finally, I got a clean report.

Now just a few days ago, I had this attack.  I call it an attack, because it came out of no-where.  And I did not deal with it well.  I was in agony.  I was writhing, here and there, like a fish out of water.  And I could not ease the pain.  As I threw up, the pain, became constant.  My breathing, became labored, and I actually, thought, I was going to die.  This went on for a couple of hours, before my husband, God bless him, could see I needed immediate care.  So they called 911.

Rushed to the nearest hospital, I was given an IV, and they took care of me, took a scan of the area, I was in pain, and they diagnosed the kidney stone.  A tiny stone, they said, probably smaller then the size of a sand granule.  For two days, after this, with their medication, and unable to go to my doctor, and then the snow, keeping us in, I suffered, with the pain.  Sometimes finding relief, in the medicine, and sometimes, just hanging on, in hope with God.

And one thing I hung on to, was my Salvation.  I am not perfect, but I have accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  And I thought, if I go, well, at least, I believe I am saved.  So I plead the blood of Jesus.  The blood, that God sees.  Not to honor me.  But to honor his son.  For his sacrifice, would make my life whole, to stand before a holy God.  For his acceptance, to give me access to the Kingdom of God.  Only the blood of Jesus can do that!!

You see, when you are ill, and I see this as a testimony, but when you are ill physically, or spiritually, it is hard to look to God.  Its hard to trust God.  You may say things, like you normally, do when your well, etc.  But it becomes a distraction.  You begin looking at the pain, or the problem.  But not the solution.  Your words can become very negative, and not at all Christ like, or in love.  And the thing is, in all our ways, we are to acknowledge God.  We are to honor God, in love, and with one another.  I did not fall out of love, with my husband, or son, or caregivers.  I was just so grateful for the care, everyone gave me.  Prayers, everything….And especially, God.  I just thought, well Lord, I really do not want to die, but if it is your time.  I just pray I am right with you.  I repent of sin.  I pray, for more life.  But God its in your hands…..

But unless you are grounded in faith, you can lose your way.  As I walked through the shadow of death, (Psalm 23:4) I kept telling myself, “your walking through Elena, your walking through.  Keep walking….You do not have to stay here. This will pass!!!!!!”

But, there were moments, when I felt defeated.  This is when you need to trust in the authorities that are placed there.  God almighty!  And, I had to trust my provider, and I, of course trusted my husband, to help me with my medications, timings, to take them, and  my son.

And just my husbands physical strength to actually pull me up.  Out of a bed, that was turning more, and more into a cave.

But I also trusted in my friends.  I sent out an SOS and a few responded.  And those that did respond, blessed me, because they were there in a time of need.  If a friend says they are going to pray for you, that is a gift.  And I am just so grateful to God for the compassion, and care they shared with me, as Christ would.

Now to tie this up, and to bring some perspective, from my heart, being in this state, also reminded me, when you are spiritually, not well.  You don’t feel like calling on Jesus, you don’t want to be bothered, you are content, to lick your own wounds, or to just be your own doctor, counselor, physician, or priest.  This is when an alarm should be going off, ding, ding, ding.  And telling you, its time to get back to God, stop being lukewarm, and get spiritually right with God.

And to me, I think that could be sign of detachment from the body of Christ, and from God.  But, the thing is, I understand it.  Because, many times, people have hurt us, but I know, that I know, Christ is love.  I know, that Christ went to the cross, and by each stripe, he took, we are healed.  So I kept my hope in Christ.  I kept thinking about the Love, He has been teaching me lately.  I have said it before, but I will say it again.  Walking in love, increases, your faith, and faith we know, according to the word of God, pleases God.  Hebrews 11:6.

Prior to this attack, I kept finding scriptures, that would remind me of the grace of God.  It was like God, kept bringing them to me.  His grace is and was sufficient for me.  For the night, the stone passed, I actually, laid the Bible on my body, and I pleaded the blood of Jesus.  And I still do.  My husband had prayed for me, and laid hands on me, and commanded it to come.  Faith.  That night, I traded, my kidney stone, for a new mustard seed of faith. (love).  A thorn was placed on my flesh, but his grace was sufficient for me.

And for whatever reason, I did have this attack on my health, I know, that I know, his grace was, and is sufficient for me.  It got me through. It has gotten me through in the past.  As well.

I am recovering.  And I am trusting God.  Again, I thank those who stood by me, and I pray, precious blessings, for the love you extended.

AND LEST I SHOULD BE EXALTED ABOVE MEASURE THROUGH THE ABUNDANCE OF THE REVELATIONS THERE WAS GIVEN TO ME A THORN IN THE FLESH, THE MESSENGER OF SATAN TO BUFFET ME, LEST I SHOULD BE EXALTED ABOVE MEASURE.  FOR THIS THING I BESOUGHT THE LORD THRICE THAT IT MIGHT DEPART FROM ME.  AND HE SAID UNTO ME.  MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE: FOR MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS.  MOST GLADLY, THEREFORE WILL I RATHER GLORY IN MY INFIRMITIES, THAT THE POWER OF CHRIST MAY REST UPON ME.  THEREFORE, I TAKE PLEASURE IN INFIRMITIES, IN REPROACHES, IN NECESSITIES, IN PERSECUTIONS, IN DISTRESSES, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE, FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN AM I STRONG.

II Corinthians 12:7-10.

AND JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, BECAUSE OF YOUR UNBELIEF; FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, IF YOU HAVE FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, YE SHALL SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN REMOVE HENCE TO YONDER PLACE, AND IT SHALL REMOVE AND NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU.  MATTHEW 17:20.

I thank God the kidney stone, was removed, by prayer, by love, and by the power of God.  And that my faith, has increased.  Nothing is impossible with God.

And as an after thought, hold onto this.  Hold onto the sacrifice of cross, for by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5.  His body was broken, so our bodies can be made whole.  He received our sorrows, so we can rejoice.  He took it all for us.  Let, us always, whenever, in doubt, always go back to the cross, to know.  By what Christ did on the cross, there is always a way.  Never, ever forget that, go back to the cross, for any need.  He did it all for us.  Praise God, thank you Jesus!!!

Just my thoughts….and especially praying the thoughts of Christ are mine.  Yikes, because all those drugs they gave me…..(dreaming about heaven and hell)  But thats another story……………..

Thank you Lord, that I don’t want or need them right now!  Stay well, be healthy spiritually and physically…..In his love, the only true love, is Christ…..

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I thank you, and praise you, for helping me through this illness.  I have called an attack.  You know, why I call it that.  But Lord, for a moment here, I thought, I should keep this private.  Not say what I went through.  But Lord, if it helps someone, anyone, to see, they need to get right with you, because, we do not know, what the next moment, may have, in store, and they make it right with you, then I pray, it brings someone to your throne.  That maybe somehow, even as an indication, that they are cold, in their walk with you, spiritually, and that they are ill.  But the person, needs to see that, they need to see, the need for an almighty God, who I know, by the stripes of Christ healed me.  I know you are God almighty.  Nothing is impossible with you.  Nothing.  Lord, my faith did increase because of love.  I know it was manifested by trading a kidney stone, for a mustard seed of faith.  Lord you honored me, because I plead the blood of Jesus.  Lord, I just want to thank you for the life abundantly, for all my blessings, for my loved ones, health, and love as well.  For everything.  I know the difference, now, in my walk more so.  Thank you.  In Jesus name.  Amen

Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning, after we have received a full knowledge of the truth, there is no other sacrifice that will cover these sins.  There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible expectation of Gods judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies.  Hebrews 11:26-27

THIS CHRISTIAN ANGRY OVER GULF SPILL


Below my blog is a testimony of this photo from Florida entitled: "The Best of God."

I love the Gulf, I love the beauty that is there.  And I love, the fact, that God spoke to me there….(see my Testimony below, The best of God.)

Its over two months, since the Gulf spill, began.  And every day, as I listen to the news reports, and I see the devastation, on the television, I admit I get angry.

As a Christian, we are warned, to be careful about being angry.  CEASE FROM ANGER, AND FORSAKE WRATH:  FRET NOT THYSELF IN ANY WAY TO DO EVIL.  PSALMS 37:8 We are told by God, to put that into check, and to watch ourselves, so that we do not do anything, we should not.  Anger is an ugly thing, when it is released, without restraint.  So, I do want to express some restraint, as I communicate, and share, but it also makes me sad.

I tend to look at things sometimes symbolically.  And how they sometimes relate to situations, or life.  And I long to see things as God does.  And I just wonder, and think….Lord, how this must grieve you.  After all he is the creator, of heaven and earth.  And please, especially as I am angry, don’t give me this baloney, that we evolved.  Or that we were some burst of energy, like some scientific theories, want to push on us.

No, the truth of the matter, is that we are all created in Gods love.  Read Genesis. And that place, called the Gulf, was created by God himself.  I know, there are many places on this earth, that reflect beauty, peace, and such a splendor of such great magnitude, that you cannot help and see God’s hand.   Like Hawaii, it truly is paradise.  And each place of the earth, was created by God, who basically created the earth for his entertainment.  For his purposes.  And by his power.  The ocean, the deep oceans was created by God, to supply food, and to remind us of his power, as he stops the waters at the shore.  The Bible, talks about the waters, and when God created the earth, he parted the waters.  Below the surface of the water, sure mankind, has penetrated some of the mystery of what lies below.  But only God knows.  For he created each living fish, plant, and placed everything there for his entertainment, for his pleasure.  For his reasons…

He is able to see within those waters, where we cannot see.  And he sees the pollution, he sees the oil spilling more, and more into those waters  He sees our souls as well…and he sees the pollution there as well.

For as He created us, for his reasons, I see how sin, how ugly when we let it go unchecked, un-repented, is like that oil spill.  Dark and murky, it destroys, pollutes, and distorts the beauty of who we are.  He sees that…God almighty sees it all.  FOR OUR OFFENSES ARE MANY IN YOUR SIGHT, AND OUR SINS TESTIFY AGAINST US.  OUR OFFENSES ARE EVER WITH US, AND WE ACKNOWLEDGE OUR INIQUITIES REBELLION, AND TREACHERY AGAINST THE LORD, TURNING OUR BACKS ON GOD, FOMENTING (1 instigate or stir up (an undesirable or violent sentiment or course of action) See note at incite) SO JUSTICE IS DRIVEN BACK AND RIGHTEOUSNESS STANDS AT A DISTANCE….

God is watching this all from a distance.  And I just wonder are we as a country, seeking Gods help, and wisdom in this, or do we think we can handle it ourselves?  Or just trusting BP to take care of it?  And then after hearing what happened yesterday, with our President and BP that made me somewhat angry.  Twenty Billion, to be given in compensation.  Is that what our Gulf is worth?  FOR I KNOW HOW MANY ARE YOUR OFFENSES AND HOW GREAT YOUR SINS.  YOU OPPRESS THE RIGHTEOUS AND TAKE BRIBES AND YOU DEPRIVE THE POOR OF JUSTICE IN THE COURTS.  AMOS 5:12  How can that dollar amount, compensate the many, families and people, who have made the fishing industry their occupation for life?  For many families, this is a generational occupation, and the damage, will take many years to be restored?  Is twenty billion going to cover all that?

Well, to change my mood from anger….

I haven’t traveled as much, as I would like.  But, I have been fortunate, and blessed to go to Florida on a few occasions.  And every time, I have, I have felt the presence of the Lord, on those beautiful shores of the gulf, and the Atlantic ocean.  I have seen his hand in every bit of creation.  So, to know that, it is being polluted.  Angers me.  (I am sorry, I know I am venting)

But I do pray.  I pray, for the many people, who have depended on those waters for their livelihood.  I pray for restoration.  I pray, that our President, would make wise decisions, and as the leader of our great country, would not leave the decisions to BP in correcting this catastrophe.  I pray, that well would just go dry, and stop polluting those waters.  I pray, for all of Gods creatures, who inhabit the land, and waters, would by his mighty hand, moved from the pollution of that oil.  I just pray, because if I let this anger go without praying.  It would be released into something as ugly as that spill.

How I wonder, how God controls anger over, and over again.  When He see our sins, unchecked, polluting us, polluting our souls.  How merciful he is.  Yet, he is a gentleman, and gives us a free will.  But we reap, what we sow.  Just as this spill if it will continue will cause great damage.  And I know in this spill, he is merciful as well.  And He restores.  He can restore, the gulf as well.  But we have to ask, we have to pray.

For he is not mocked, and what we spill into our lives, without his intervention, will pollute.  I am so grateful for my Lord Jesus, and for his sacrifice, by the blood of Jesus, he cleanses my sins.  How I pray, and plead his blood over this gulf spill.  And for all of our anger, for we see by mankind, and its need for oil, we have come to this place of pollution, in our gulf.   I just pray for his restoration…..and put this anger into check.

EPHESIANS 4:26

IN YOUR ANGER, DO NOT SIN.  DO NOT LET THE SUN GO DOWN WHILE YOU ARE STILL ANGRY, AND DO NOT GIVE THE DEVIL A FOOTHOLD.

REVELATION 1:5

AND FROM JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD, AND THE RULER OF THE KINGS OF EARTH.  TO HIM WHO LOVES US AND HAS FREED US FROM OUR SINS BY HIS BLOOD, AND HAS MADE US TO BE A KINGDOM AND PRIESTS TO SERVE HIS GOD AND FATHER-TO HIM BE GLORY AND POWER FOR EVER AND EVER!  AMEN

Just my thoughts…..and praying with his love.  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I praise you, almighty God, creator of heaven and earth.  Creator, of those great waters in the gulf, that are now being polluted, by this oil spill.  Do I want to blame anyone….no.  But I am angry, at the devastation there.   And I am angry to see how the devil, comes to kill steal and destroy.  Lord great creator, help curb this anger, that I am feeling.  But I know many others are feeling as well.  Lord, I pray for results right now.  I pray, to see your hand, in this, as you stop that oil, from spilling any further.  Lord, I plead with you, for the sake of the waters, to be pure for our food, for peoples lives, to be fulfilled, and for each creature you created to inhabit those waters.  I pray, for restoration.  Lord, please do something, and turn this situation around.  I pray, for each soul, to know you, so sin, would not pollute as well.  Lord, I just pray, and bring this all to the obedience of Christ, so my anger, will be put into check, knowing, and so grateful I know this, that you can turn this around, and you can heal the waters, the land, your creatures, and restore.  I know, for you daily restore me to be who I can be in you….In Jesus name, Amen

HERE IS YOUR GOD!


HERE IS YOUR GOD, SEE THE SOVEREIGN LORD COMES WITH POWER, AND HIS ARM RULES FOR HIM.  SEE, HIS REWARD IS WITH HIM, AND HIS RECOMPENSE ACCOMPANIES HIM.  HE TENDS HIS FLOCK LIKE A SHEPHERD.  HE GATHERS THE LAMBS IN HIS ARMS AND CARRIES THEM CLOSE TO HIS HEART;  HE GENTLY LEADS THOSE THAT HAVE YOUNG….ISAIAH 40:9-11

This message is for each one of us…..and even though, we may all be at different stages of life.  We are meant to know God.

So many times, life will give us a situation, and we do not know what to do, how to do it, or where to turn….and just as you almost feel helpless.  You wonder….

You may be in a routine of life, and bored….You may be successful, yet lonely…..You could be anywhere in life, and your heart is longing for something true, and real.  And you don’t know it, but you need God.  Or you may know it, but you just don”t know how…You do not know how to reach God.

For the truth of the matter, like a computer, with software installed in you, you were created to have fellowship with God.  God the creator of heaven and earth, created you in his image, created you to have a relationship with him.

A small voice speaks, and tells you, seek God.  For doing that, is the solution.  But do you hear that voice, or do you ignore it?  That is Gods Holy spirit, calling you.  For many times, you will brush that little voice aside, and say, no, how can I turn to God?  I don’t know how.  Or why should I turn to God, when I have sinned so much, and I want to believe, but does he even hear me?  Or sadly, someone will say, I don’t need God.

Dear one, I don’t know you, but I know, today, someone will hear God through me, as I try and articulate, his call to you.  It does not matter where you are….or who you are…..or what you have done.  God loves you.  And to be completely honest, to the person, who says, I do not need God….  You know, you are lying to yourself.  You were created to love him, and know him but you are believing the lies….and that comes from the devil.  For in your heart of hearts, you know, you need God.  Something is missing, that final puzzle, when He is not in our lives.  Because thats the way He made us.  We know, when we need him.  Even if we have denied him.  But he does not deny us, if we search for him.  I know….

You may have lost your way, along the way.  Maybe someone has abandoned you, perhaps, a spouse, and has hurt you deeply.  It could be a friend, or even a job loss….But you feel very alone.  Even if someone is right by your side.

You feel abandoned not complete.  And you will continue to have that feeling if you do not do something about that, right now….if you do not harden your heart.

Maybe someone was not loyal to you.  But God will be loyal to you.  When someone is disloyal, it is grievous, and wounds the heart, to the core of who we are.  But at that core, is the love of Jesus, if you just look there, you will find that he is truth.  John 14:6  That he will heal you.  Isaiah 53:5 That He will never leave or forsake you.  Joshua 1:5.  God tells you that, in his word, and his son, also tells you that…Hebrews 13:5.

Why look to your horoscope, or to people, or some self-help book.  Even now you can take these scriptures, and look them up, and meditate on then.  When God is calling you to come to his throne, seek him.  And He wants you to know, you can come to him, at any time. You ask me how do I do that?  Well you can do it first of all anywhere.  But take a moment, a quiet moment, go into a room, if you can by yourself, and just begin talking to him.  See yourself, sitting at his feet, and see yourself, and him.  He is the great counselor, friend, and yet He is the King of Kings.

Let him take your hurt, your pain, and quiet your spirit.  If there is sin, dear one, ask him, for forgiveness.  If there is pride, and you think you have not sinned, ask him to show you, that pride.  You see, God wants to do a new thing with you and your life, but you need to search for him.

The secret, is don’t give up on him.  Don’t take this moment and throw it away.  Search for him, with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might.  You will find him.  You might even go to your Bible, and look up in the concordance, something thats on your heart….He will encourage you.  Here is God.  Find him.  Pray….and if need to pray the Prayer of Salvation, the link is below.  This way through this prayer, you will know, your sins are forgiven.  And you have a place in his Kingdom.  Be encouraged.  God is calling you…..

Just my thoughts, with his love.  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, what to do, how to do it…..feeling lost, not sure what to do.  But seeking you, seeking your love, your counsel, your advice, your fellowship.  Your healing…..Lord, touch this persons heart, to know you are able, and in seeking you.  There is always a way.  In Jesus name.  Bless Lord, bless, Amen.

IS THERE ENVYING AND STRIFE AT YOUR WORK PLACE?


FOR WHERE ENVYING AND STRIFE IS, THERE IS CONFUSION AND EVERY EVIL WORK.

JAMES 3:16

I am just searching the scriptures this morning, and I read this, from my devotional.  And it just reminded me of some of the battles, I was in, when I worked in the Corporate business world.  I worked with some pretty catty, and spiteful women, and men, for that matter, who used to make the work place, a place of hell.  They were never consistent in their personalities, and you never knew, when you said, “Good Morning”, if they were going to throw something at you, or return the greeting.  You might walk into a room, and you know they are gossiping about you, or someone else.  Or you are just singled out, and treated unfairly. Snubbed.

Being around those kind of people, is a hardship.  And it’s not like jobs grow on trees.  So you, cannot always avoid personalities like these.  But one thing, I have learned, is that you can do, is pray for the person.  You see, we all have issues, and things we have to deal with.  And it is hard to judge someone, unless you have walked in someone’s shoes.  And while they are making your life miserable, they are dealing with something, that perhaps, goes beyond, your comprehension.

I am not saying be a door mat to anyone.  But, be humble, be sweet, and don’t let your hurt and anger, rise up to a point, where you yourself, will be out of control.  It is hard, I know, being in those kind of environments.  But, I learned, that sometimes, God is working things out in us as well, when we do not react, negatively to those, who stir up strife.  We are called to be submissive, to those above us, and to one another.  In love.

Are you being envious, and jealous of someone, because they got the promotion, and you did not?  This does bring the confusion, of total chaos and disorder, to getting anything done, constructively.  It is not healthy for any work place.  So you have to look at yourself as well, as the problem and where it stems from.

The thing is, when we start acting like them, in gossip, or returning evil, for evil.  We are letting the devil into our work places.  Be careful you are not a part of the problem as well.  You may have to go to the person, or persons, and try to smooth out the situation, even if you are not at fault.  But, be careful not to be a part of the problem.  Falling into traps, the enemy may set before you.

So, if you are a Christian, and you are receiving, unfair treatment, or persecution, because of who you are in Christ, remember Christ has called you to talk, and walk in love.  Be careful of the traps, of gossip, strife, and envy.  Be careful, not to let the devil in your conversations by griping, and complaining as well.  Be careful, not to fall into the traps, the enemy sets before you.  In doing so, you could lose your own blessing.  Trust God, and pray, God will give you strength, he may open another door, but while your at it, pray for your enemy, pray for those who spitefully use you.  Forgive.  I know, that I know, if your reading this, you may be relating to the discord, in the work place.  Trust God.

Don’t let their envying and strife, confuse you to the plan God has for you.  God will bless you……

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Lord, I pray for the person, who is reading this, and may be in a place, where they are constantly bombarded by the attacks of the enemy, and Lord, quite honestly, I pray, they would see as well, if they are contributing to this environment, of “envy and strife”  Lord, as Christians sometimes, we do not see, that we are acting just as the world does.  Lord, help this person, with this situation.  Bring comfort, bring peace, bring a solution.  May we all walk in love with one another, may we all forgive.  May we not be a part of the enemies antics, to cause confusion.  Lord, give us discernment, to know the tricks of the enemy, and not to fall in them.  The enemy would just love to stop your plan and blessing in someone’s life, because they became a part of the problem, instead of the solution.  Your ways, your truth.  In Jesus name,  Amen
