GOD IS NOT MOCKED THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FORGIVENESS AND RESPECT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


P1010003.jpg

As God is my example, of course I forgive. I release the poison. I will not keep it in my heart. I will obey God.

But as God is my example, I do not tolerate disrespect. GOD IS NOT MOCKED. I release the disrespect and the mockery, and I stand my ground. I take back my respect from anybody who tries to steal it.

Disrespect is a form of mockery, and if my Lord, does not tolerate it, why should I? I don’t have to, and I can keep my peace and walk away.

It does not mean I do not forgive it means, I know who I am in Christ.

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING. AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING; FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. AS WE HAVE THEREFORE OPPORTUNITY, LET US DO GOOD UNTO ALL MEN, ESPECIALLY UNTO THEM WHO ARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.
GALATIANS 6:7-10 KJV.

I hope these thoughts will encourage someone.  You see, long story short, if you have ever been disrespected by someone, it feels like they have taken something away from you.  And its hard to regain trust, or even a sense of confidence, when you allow someone to do that.  Even after you forgive.  But Christ did not tell us, to trust someone who does that.  

It has happened to me a few times, and even by family members.  So recently when an offense occurred between me and a former friend, I knew I could not allow it.  And I hate to say former, but right now, it does not look good.  I will always care though for this person.  

I had tried to extend grace, but that same grace was not extended to me.  I called it for what it was.  Respect.  Respect was not given to me.  I was being snubbed and ignored.  And I took my respect back.  

I walked away.  And sometimes you have to do that.  The sad thing, is, I love the person.  But this person, would not give me the courtesy, that I extended.  And it took me a while.  To see, it, but really I see and believe God showed me.  

I was in a spiritual battle for over two weeks, and I was trying to keep communication opened, but it was closed shut in my face.  The Lord showed me this person was given to change.  Said one thing, but yet, was being offended with me, and it just did not make sense.

MY SON, FEAR THOU THE LORD, AND THE KING:  AND MEDDLE NOT WITH THEM THAT ARE GIVEN TO CHANGE.  Proverbs 24:21.  KJV. 

This person was given to change.  The actions, the “heartfelt intentions” this person said they had, did not match the actions.

I think it took me a while because sometimes, you don’t see it.  Its subtle, its in subliminal ways, that people treat you, that may be indirect, but keep you puzzled.  Or frustrated, because you cannot resolve issues.  This is where I was with this person.  But I did not see it, because love and friendship should be gracious.  Should be kind, it should be honorable.  I gave it, in grace.  But grace was not extended to me.  

But if you are tolerated, and not celebrated.  Look and see the signs.  Its not in the gift one gives, but in the respect.  

You need to see what people really mean, by their actions.  Not so much their words.  But their actions.  Silence is not always golden, my friend.  

And if you are an opened book, like I am.  You expect someone to be honest, and opened with you.  Respect yourself, and reject anybody who will not respect you.  Anyone who tries to control you, by that is using manipulation.  And the KJV scriptures talk about that, as being like witchcraft.  Nope walk away.  

Remember its not just about forgiving.  Its about knowing who you are in Christ.  He did not call us to become door mats, or someones stepping stone.  Yes, forgive so the poison, will not penetrate you.  But respect yourself enough, to walk away.  Know who you are in Christ.  Put on your armor of God, and walk away.  Quench those fiery darts, by His love.  

I hope this helps someone.  

Blessings, and love,

WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE DECEIVED BY FALSE WORD AND FALSE PROPHETS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3266.jpgAnd for such a time as this I write it.  Why God has shown me this, is beyond me, but I do want to serve our Lord in truth.  His truth.  Not mans truth, not a publisher who purposely disobeys God in this.  And certainly not in false prophets, who are to me, wolves in sheep’s clothing.

I don’t want nothing to do with that.  And yes, the Lord has been showing me these things.

For a while now, I have tried with all my being, giving scripture, concerning the KJV word.  That these Bible versions, that are out, and very much used, are, an abomination to God.  Yes, an abomination.  He does not accept them.  Because they have disobeyed God by changing the word, and the word is not holy, but compromised.

I have told so many, this, as best as I can to my own ability, but I need the ability of God, so I press in with prayer, and the Holy word, in the King James, as Christ is the word.  (see John 1 from the KJV to see His truth, as to being the word.)  So I don’t just spin my wheels.

It just makes me think, He is holy.  He did not compromise.  Truth.  He spoke it in love, and He was steadfast in that.

I want to be like that.  I have been in a few spiritual battles lately, for this reason, but also because with the recent tragedies, I have seen “false prophets.”  Those that claim they are serving God, yet they cannot serve their fellow person, unless they are publicly shamed.  I have seen these false prophets, take scripture, twist it, change it, compromise it, for a prosperity message.  That tickles others ears, but it is so far, from Gods truth, its obvious.  There is no call, or warning to call those to repent.  To tell them to seek Christ, because we are in end times.  To ensure their salvation.

But obviously not to some, they think these messages are fine.  For some think that their is an anointing in these messages.  They think if it makes you feel good, it is good, and thereby there is no harm in it.  They don’t see the contradictions because it does not line up with Gods holy word.  Yet, the message eludes repentance, or a calling of those to beware, and to seek God for who He is, not what He can give.  They turn God into an ATM.  Its very deceptive, because it does tickle the ears.  It grieves me.  So if it grieves me it has to grieve God.

My thought is this, as it is also KJV scriptural, you know them by their fruit.  Is the message, based on Gods holy, uncompromised Holy KJV word?  Or is it a message, that tickles your ears?  Is it a message, that does not cause you to search for God by also searching yourself, to see where one may fail?  To repent to be humble?  Is it a prosperity message?  That totally disregards Gods truth, and commandments, His law.  Gods ways are excellence.  And He is not mocked.  There was a reason, why Christ turned the tables in the temple.  Do we forget what angers God?

One man, told me, I don’t care, if this prophet, is in the truth of the Bible, or if I even make it to heaven.  I just want to have some hope in today.  Wow, I thought.

For a while now, I have been trying to share this truth.  About the deception in Bibles.  Not to judge anybody, but because we are called to warn one another.  Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the righteous.  When I read that, from my King James.  I am assuming the “righteous” is other Christians.  And these brothers and sisters, who I try to warn, are not listening to what I say about exclusively only using the King James, but they are following false prophets.  Who themselves use false word.  They think its judging….

And I try to stop them, to bring it to their attention, not to judge them, but because I know what Gods word says in these matters, and I have discernment.

But it goes in one ear, and out the other.   Either it is ignored, or they fight.  And they fight with a vengeance, defending that which is wrong.  They get so angry, if you bring it to their attention.  They defend this unrighteousness, and they say you are judging.  They dismiss, Gods holy word, that tells us, to beware of such prophets.  Like Jeremiah 23:16.

THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, HEARKEN NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS THAT PROPHESY UNTO YOU:  THEY MAKE YOU VAIN:  THEY SPEAK A VISION OF THEIR OWN HEART, AND NOT OUT OF OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.  

How specific does God have to get for us to get that?  Do we have to see His wrath, before we open our eyes?  Do we have to see our sins, separate ourselves from Him?  Do we have to lose our blessings, our sense of discernment, because one would follow a prophet, who does that?

Oh how I grieved for that, man who told me that he did not even care if he made it to heaven!  And I shared with him truth, but he did not even acknowledge me.  I told him, get a King James bible.

I have told friends, who buy these books, and support these ministries, and read that crap, but they don’t listen.  One friend, judged me, harshly, rudely, and insulted me, because I told her, I do not read these books, from someone who does not even obey God in this.  This was concerning another false prophet.

Yet I walked in love.  I had another friend, who totally ignored this but felt to even bring it up, one was a “backstabber” if they even said anything about a false prophet.  Really?  Because last time I checked, we are called to warn each other.  We are called to mark those who cause division.  And have nothing to do with them.  We are called to test the spirits.  To try them.

I had another friend, a gentleman, who told me I changed, I used to be so nice.  And I thought, I still am nice.  I just want you to have your blessings, I just want you to get answers to prayer.  I just want you to please God.  And have true discernment.  I have noticed people would rather stop talking to you, and quit being your friend, if you even bring these matters up.  About the KJV or false prophets.

Well oh well, I guess I am out of friends.  Because I would rather please God, then deny His truth.  But thats not true.  I do have some faithful friends.  Loyal friends.  There are only a few that, that stand by me, support me, encourage me, and see my gift and calling.  They share my writings, and they communicate.  Communication is such a wonderful thing.  Because we sharpen each other.

Anyway, concerning those who are not listening….

I have spoken these things, in love, and the love was not returned.  I did not argue, fight, yet, I was ignored.  And told to “agree, to disagree” was what was needed.  Nor an apology was extended. Try telling God that when you ignore His word.  Try telling God that when you need a miracle.  Life is unpredictable, and if we are not doing our part, if we are not obedient to God, we are hypocrites, to say the least.  How do we expect answers to prayer, if we do not obey Him, in just these matters?

If a pastor cannot obey God, even in the word he uses, or she, as a public speaker, why would I want that false anointing on me?  Its part truth, and part lie!  Where is the message for repentance, humbleness?  These false prophets, promote pride.

But if you tell another brother or sister in Christ this, who thinks they are “righteous” (again like Ezekiel 33 says) They get very angry.  They fight you.  My thought is this, I do not want to be defending, or agreeing with someone that disobeys God in these matters.  I don’t want to be on the wrong side.  I would rather walk alone, then to be in the company of someone who insists these false bibles, and false prophets are correct.

Like the saying goes, “you can lead them to water, but you cannot make them drink it.” And I won’t hit someone on the head, with my King James bible, if they want to follow the blind.  Like scripture says, the blind, will lead the blind, and they know not where they go.  You might want to look it up from a KJV.

So this morning, because I know this is on Gods heart, He showed me the following scriptures:

WHY THEN IS THIS PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM SLIDDEN BACK BY PERPETUAL BACKSLIDING?  THEY HOLD FAST DECEIT, THEY REFUSE TO RETURN.  I HEARKENED AND HEARD, THEY SPAKE NOT ARIGHT:  NO MAN REPENTED HIM OF HIS WICKEDNESS, SAYING WHAT HAVE I DONE? EVERY ONE TURNED TO HIS COURSE, AS THE HORSE RUSHETH INTO THE BATTLE.  YEA, THE STORK IN THE HEAVEN KNOWETH HER APPOINTED TIMES; AND THE SWALLOW OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR COMING; BUT MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 8:5-7.  KJV.  

Wow…His people do not know the judgment of the Lord.  They refuse to return.  From this, which God sees as backsliding.  This is what I see, when my friends, or people ignore the warnings I give about false word, or false prophets.  They do not repent, nor do they even acknowledge, the truth in these matters.  They will not apologize, or even be accountable that they are not seeing it clearly.  They would rather turn on the silent treatment.  Well I can be silent too.

That scares me.  In the fear of God.  Not in judging, but in warning them.

I have another friend, who I love dearly.  And we are having a discussion about not giving, and giving.  Why?  Because I don’t like being off balance.  When I cannot give in return.  Some people can do it free and easy.  And some do not have the resources. I believe gifts, should be given in careful consideration, not just to give.  I don’t like the feeling of just taking, but not being able to give equally.  I don’t want to use anybody, nor do I want to feel used.  I think thats a horrible feeling.   But I also feel, that a gift is a spiritual connection, and if someone does not appreciate a gift, for example, and even re-gifts it, thats just sad.  Especially if someone sees you playing with their heart, and you make excuses instead of being accountable.  

Anyway, I don’t know why I feel this way, maybe this is why I serve God, with all I can, because I know I cannot repay Him, for who He is, and what He did on that cross.   For me personally.  His life was a gift.  I don’t want God to feel like I am using Him.

And these false messages, that take part truth do remind me of that, with the prosperity message, like it promotes only using God, and that is so wrong.  To me it is.

But I try and serve Him, so He knows, I am thankful.  I serve Him, in HIS KJV truth, so He knows I am trying to obey Him.  His gift of life is too precious to let it be only about the prosperity message, or to think even His grace is sufficient, when I know, I could make a difference.

But I will try, I will try with all my being.  I will try to repay Him.  I will try to stand in His truth.  I will try…..

To give Love.  I will try to obey, and warn others.  I will try to serve Him, and never be ashamed to be called a Christian.  I just want to be strong in His truth, and nothing else.  I want to be aware of the enemies antics, and avoid the lies.  The deception.  I want nothing to do with it.  I don’t want anything that separates me from God.

But there is something in my heart, that wants to at least, keep His KJV word, in love and obedience.

I just see the difference, between false word, and false prophets, and if I can spare someone, and at least give them that, to know truth, then maybe, just maybe, my life, will bring glory to God.  And maybe just maybe, they can repent, return to God, and see the difference themselves, from false word, and false prophets.  So they can avoid the deception.

Bottom line, if they do not use a KJV they are a false prophet to me.  Sorry if this offends anybody, but thats the way I see it.  I won’t argue about it, or try to convince anybody.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  I know it is a little longer then most of my “Just my Thoughts.”  Feel free to share this, if you agree with my thoughts.  If not, oh well. 

 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

 

 

GREED AND OTHER REASONS WHY MONEY IS CURSED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

Does anybody ever notice, I don’t ask for money concerning my ministry?  Let me tell you why.  And let me share some things, I have learned about those that are greedy, and those that cut corners, those that cheat, and those that curse themselves.  Concerning money.

I don’t ask anybody for money.  In fact, I don’t even like writing about it.  But, I feel the prompting from the Lord, so I must obey.

But in ministry, I don’t ask for a penny.  I don’t ask, because I don’t want the message to be confused with dollars.  I don’t want to corrupt, a word from God, because I am not looking to be compensated.  By anybody.  

Now, I have to be careful with that, because I do ask God to bless me, but I want to be blessed, not cursed, by His ways, and not by my own desires.  So, I do this, without any pretense.  Money is not my goal.  His Kingdom is my goal.  I seek His Kingdom and righteousness, and I know the principle tells me all things will be added.  Please note:  I underlined all.  

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.  MATTHEW 6:13.  KJV.  

Oh believe me, when I tell you, when I first started out in ministry, yes, money was my goal.  Why?  Because I saw all these high profile ministries making money, and in the name of the Lord.  I thought, that was correct.  I thought, that was normal.  But God showed me.  

He showed me, the difference.  I began seeing, chinks in their armor.  I began seeing the motive, in them asking for money.  I began seeing, that money sent to many of these ministries, went straight into that pastors pocket.  I began seeing, that many of them would use gimmicks, to get people to send money, and they would take scriptures, and try to twist those scriptures, to get that goal.

They did not do this in truth.  And because they did not, I will not follow them or even listen to them.  For many reasons, including the Bibles they used are corrupt.  I don’t want their anointing of half lies, and half truth, affecting my money.  Or any of my blessings, because they are cursing themselves.  

I Peter 5:2 KJV.

FEED THE FLOCK OF GOD WHICH IS AMONG YOU, TAKING THE OVERSIGHT THEREOF, NOT BY CONSTRAINT BUT WILlINGLY; NOT FOR FILTHY LUCRE, BUT OF A READY MIND.   

It turned me off. 

Yet, I knew God gave me a gift in my writing.  A responsibility.  And I will be honest, I have not seen a great financial return in that.  But thats o.k.  I guess, I am just at a point, where I just want to serve God.  And if someone gets something out of what I write, well glory to God.  

So I take the oversight, willingly.  Because I know, God does reward me, even on earth.  But more when I stand before Him.  Because truth, His truth, KJV truth,  is always my goal.  The message of repenting, and salvation, always has to be front and center with me, including what Bible to use.  And that being the King James.  And I know it, and most of my readers know this as well.  About me. 

If someone wants to give me money, fine, I will not turn that down.  But I don’t ask.

Anyway, my King James bible, tells me, money answers all things.  

Ecclesiastes 10:19  

A FEAST IS MADE FOR LAUGHTER, AND WINE MAKETH MERRY:  BUT MONEY ANSWERETH ALL THINGS.  KJV. 

It answers all things.  But who owns the earth, and the fullness thereof?  That is God, almighty!   And so when I pray, and I pray, with the right heart, I know He can answer ALL things.  If I am seeking His Kingdom, if I am seeking His righteousness.  

So what I have observed, in many things, in my lifetime.  Is that greed is rampant.  People, hustle people, for money.  They overcharge.  They steal.  They mislead.  They give a false sense of service, when all they want is your money.  Its crazy.  Even in ministry. 

Many hold onto a penny, like it was the most important thing.  And make it the priority in life, then what God thinks.  

To me, these things can bring curses.  Scripture tells us, we are to give ten percent.  But I tell you, I am careful who I give it to.  When I give it.  Because I used to give it blindly, and I actually have regrets of giving large sums of money to ministries, that were not in the truth.  

And it also tells us, in Malachi, that if we give, God will rebuke the devourer.  What devourers peoples money?  What do they use it for?  Is it drugs?  Sex?  Sin?  Some would be surprised.  Including me.  But, as a steward, I truly believe we need to see what we use our money for.  

And how we use it.  We need wisdom, when it comes to money.  Myself, included.  We need to have the mind set, to seek God, and His Kingdom, in these matters, and how we get it, what we do with it, and what is our motivation, in all matters.  

Scripture tells us money, is the root of ALL evil.  

I Timothy 6:10  

FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL: WHICH WHILE SOME COVETED AFTER, THEY HAVE ERRED FROM THE FAITH, AND PIERCED THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS.  KJV.  

So how do you find the balance in all of this?  Yes you need money.  And it will answer your problems.  But I truly believe if you are cheating someone, or coveting money only, making it the priority, and not God, your hurting yourself.  You are piercing yourself, with many sorrows.  It scares me.  

In fear of God.   Look, I just sense, God wants us to see our motives when it comes to that.  He wants us to seek Him.  Seek His face, not His hand.  And “religion” (rules, regulations, traditions, made by men and groups) well they, can really distort that.

No wonder, so many are turned off by ministries.  Because many are not in the truth, and all they see, is someone, asking for money, and the message, is about getting you to want to be blessed as well.  

But they leave out the most important thing.  Salvation. They leave out repentance, and even on a daily schedule. Because people do go back to their sins.  They leave out, how we must make God the priority in everything.  Not because of what He can give, but because He is God almighty.  

Look at these ministries folks.  See their fruit.  We are told, we will know them by their fruit.  Look at the Bibles they use!  Are they using corrupted, counterfeit bibles?  Look, and see where your own heart is concerning money.  Are you willing to trade in your blessings, just to short change someone at War-mart?  And call that a blessing, because they gave you more change.  

We have to be careful.  So, very, careful.  The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, and that is included in your finances.  If our hearts are not right with God, we are opened to this.  

I just pray some of my thoughts, will have you look and see your own situation.  Because more then anything, we should be seeking the Kingdom of God, including in our own finances.  You don’t want the curse.  You want the blessing.  

And anything without God in it is a curse.  Please see this.  And share it, as well.  Do the work of a disciple, who brings truth.  Not lies.  Not with motives that deceives.

DONT REJECT CHRISTIANITY NOT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE FLAKES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0001I feel led to write this.  Perhaps, because I am a seasoned Christian now.  I know, when people read my writings, or they meet me, they may see my light shine.  

It may take a moment or two, because I am reserved in some ways, but if they want to get to know me, or be a friend, they will soon find out I am a Christian.

But not one size fits all, if I could use that as an analogy.   We are all different.  We don’t all believe the same, which is sad, but even I meet Christians, who do not agree with me, or what my King James Bible says.

And I guess, that just comes with the territory.  I guess, I could blame that on different Bible versions, as to why we are not all on the same page with God.  Or I could blame that on religion.  Rules, regulations, rituals and traditions, that are made by men, and groups.

And I think its sad, that we are not all agreeing with what God expects.  Because there are scriptures, that tell it like it is, and people do not know what it says, but they heard something, from a pastor, or in passing, and they think they have the answer.  

But I truly believe in the King James Bible, for that. It is still holy, and anointed, and not corrupted.  I have said, that the King James Bible is like a puzzle sometimes, the answers are here there, and throughout that book.  

I have met a lot of different Christians in my lifetime.  Some, that are flaky, and just say they are a Christian by name. But they don’t seem to have any true substance.  Then, I have met some, who are knowledgeable, yet they get puffed up, and hit people on the head with the bible.  This could be a turn off to some.  

Turning people off, about God, that is just wrong, in the sight of God.  We have a responsibility, to speak truth, but not to distort it.  We will be accountable for the souls, we bring to the Kingdom of God, or turn away.  

I want you to think about that.  

I have had to be really careful with that.  Because I am knowledgeable, but, I remember, what Christ said.  

That we would be known by the Love.  That should be the first thing you should see in a true Christian.  A love, thats in their eyes, a love, that is compassionate, kind, considerate, not jealous, or competitive, but just something about them, that shows that Christ is their Lord and savior.  No matter what they look like, or their status is in life, there is that love….

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  John 13:35.  KJV.

If I see the love, then I am more apt to be patient with someone, even if they do not agree with me.  But I have to make sure they see, my love, as well.

We are all on the vine, with Christ, so to speak at different levels.  He is the vine, we are the branches.  One may be seasoned, but the other may not be.  And so, there is always that chance, that there will be a difference of opinion.

The thing is though, Christianity, has taken a bad rap in many ways.  I have heard it to be called a religion of hate.  Yet, Christ was very clear about loving God, and loving one another.  It has to be seen.

I myself, have been turned off by those who have come in the name of the Lord, but they were wolves in sheeps clothing.  And they have no mercy.  Nor love.  They also have a Pharisee spirit, and they rule by the law.

Then there are those, who have a Pharisee spirit, but they reject the law.  And believe by grace only.  Those are flaky, pharisee spirits to me.  Because scripture is very clear, that Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

Being a Christian, will make you different.  But its a process, and a growth, and you cannot expect to have discernment, or spiritual gifts and callings, until you grow, and know holy word, and pray.  By first of all being obedient to God, and yes, His laws.  And fearing Him.  I am not playing with words, fear God.  

Scripture says, we are different.  In fact, it says, we can be peculiar, if you are reading this from a King James version.  Lord, only knows what it says in other Bible versions.  

BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE; THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HATH CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT: WHICH IN TIME PAST WERE NOT A PEOPLE, BUT ARE NOW THE PEOPLE OF GOD:  WHICH HAD NOT OBTAINED MERCY, BUT NOW HAVE OBTAINED MERCY.  I PETER 2:9-10.  KJV.

To get to the point, of my writing, I implore you don’t give up on God, by some of the peculiar Christians you have met, who are flaky to you.  Where it may seem what they do, is crazy.  Or that they even believe.  Yes, there are some nutty Christians.  Sad to say.  But there are also some, who desire truth, in the inner parts of their soul, and they search for God, and they find Him.  

For me, it began by seeing I was a sinner.  That we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  I came to a place, where I hit the bottom of the barrel, and I repented, and in fact, repent daily….. letting go of pride. I gave my life to Christ, because He truly did save me.  But you don’t see the fruit of that, until you come to that place where you give in to God.  We can get the mind of Christ…. by the Holy Spirit.  

Even though I know God, I am careful not to get puffed up, with pride, or to make myself look better then anyone.  I believe in the Love Christ told us about.

I don’t come from a place, “where its name it or claim it.”  Or where, I believe God is an ATM.  “To holler for a dollar.”  That must be so insulting to Him.  Yet many have a distorted, view of who God, and is not.  

Open your heart, and let God speak to you.  Again, I recommend a King James bible, for it is holy, and anointed.  And yes, be careful of the Christians you meet.  But be careful of all people.  We are to test the spirits. 

If you are truly praying, and knowledgeable, about what Gods word says, you will try, and test the spirits.  The Holy Spirit, will show you. 

Thats all I can say for now, till I write again.  But don’t reject the relationship, you can have in Christ.  Thats your responsibility, not others.  You have to work at it.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

THOUGHTS ON BEING ON THE SAME PAGE WITH GOD AND KJV SCRIPTURE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1605.jpg

THOUGHTS ON BEING ON THE SAME PAGE WITH GOD AND KJV SCRIPTURE…..

As an intercessor, I remember the days, when I used to give someone a scripture, for their need be it health, or guidance, comfort, faith, hope, whatever…. and we were all on the same page with God. For the most part. We all used the same Bible versions. That being the KJV. But it has changed so very much, even in the last twenty years….

Now with all the different Bible versions, I actually have to be specific, and tell a person, use a KJV for the holiness, and anointing so the scripture, you use will not be corrupt. The enemy, has done a number on so many people, and its sad.

Like I say; ” If the enemy can deceive a person in the word they use, he can deceive you in anything.”

I CHARGE THEE THEREFORE BEFORE GOD, AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO SHALL JUDGE THE QUICK AND THE DEAD AT HIS APPEARING AND HIS KINGDOM; PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON, OUT OF SEASON, REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE. FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES, TEACHERS, HAVING ITCHING EARS; AND THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, AND SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES. BUT WATCH THOU IN ALL THINGS, ENDURE AFFLICTIONS, DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, MAKE FULL PROOF OF THY MINISTRY. II TIMOTHY 4:1-5. KJV.

WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION TO PRAY?

Why do you pray? To ask God for something? Wouldn’t it be more practical, more respectful, to pray to God for who He is? More loving? Instead of what He can give? I ask myself that as well.

You see, I want answers to prayer. But, I also want answers for you. We are learning. We have to learn who God is, to understand Him. His ways are excellence. I just think we have to know, He deserves glory, and honor, and praise. True worship. Not this lip service.

Because He knows our hearts. Our minds, from even afar. And one cannot fool God. One cannot play church, or play religious, or pray they are this, or that, because God sees.

So, if you could see in the spirit, you could see between good and evil. But you would choose to know good. To know God. I sometimes, think about the source of how it all began, from Genesis. My King James bible. That is not corrupted. But is holy and anointed. Stored in heaven and earth for answers. His way. Not mans, corrupted versions.

God created Adam and Eve. He had a plan for them. But they were so naive. They listened to the devil. Instead of going to God, to confirm what He told them. Don’t eat from the tree of good and evil. God never intended for us to know evil.

Yet we are inundated with it, in so many ways, but we still have the choice to know God, to communicate with Him, to not listen to the devil, and to obey what God says. Don’t know sin, in our lives. Don’t disobey God in this, because we reap the consequences of it.

Seeking God, for what He can give us, is just insulting. Or just praying when we have to. For a need etc. If we do not develop our relationship with Him. And that begins by recognizing the commandments. The law. The sovereignty of who He is. His power! My goodness, He is the creator of heaven and earth! There is none like Him. No comparison.

So we are grateful for grace. Yes, grace is extended, but you cannot have grace, without seeing what God expects. You cannot expect grace if you do not do your part by seeing with your true heart.

And when you do, then you see what Christ did on that cross. It was not pretty. It was not easy. He suffered for our sins, for us, to have a way out. He is that way, the truth, and life. John 14:6 paraphrasing King James.

When you see what He did on that cross, love truly comes in your heart. You see He is the great shepherd. The protecter. The healer, the deliverer. You don’t just go to Him, for what He can give you. You go to Him because there is none like Him. There is no other source of love as great.

And so to insult Him, yes I say it is an insult, when we don’t develop knowing who He is, and you constantly ask Him for things, or expect Him to answer our prayers, without repenting, we are not seeing who He really is.

Friends, all I know, is this is important in our relationship with Him, and with anybody. For that matter. Do you only go to your friends, to see what they can give you? No, and if you do, how selfish that is. They see through it. They like God, may not say anything, but they see through it. God is silent, but there will be a day, we will hear, very clearly what He expected, especially when we stand before Him.

Yet, we are given this chance now, to make it right. To develop our relationship with Him, now. To ensure our salvation. To see what He did on the cross. To repent. To make Him Lord and savior. With our King James bibles, with prayer, that is serious, about talking to Him, and seeking Him for who He is. Not what He can give us.

Why do you think I serve Him? Because there is no one like Him. He pulled me out of a pit. Many do not know my story. My full testimony. You may know parts. But you don’t know, what I have suffered, or gone through. And I may never say all of why. Because as much as I am an open book, there is much, I cannot even put into words. But He loved me. He showed me. He guides me, and speaks to me. And I still get it wrong sometimes. But He does not give up on me, even though sometimes, I have given up on myself. This is Why, I so very much choose to obey Him, serve Him, because He literally saved me. But I had to open my eyes.

And I have made my mistakes, even in this strategy of understanding. This is why I do not ask any one for money. Or for support. In my ministry.

I want to please Him, for the right reasons. Concerning my relationship with Him, and with you.

When I pray, I want my prayers heard. I want your prayers heard too.

IF I REGARD INIQUITY IN MY HEART, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR ME. PSALMS 66:18.

Much love, Elena

Lord, forgive me, if I have gotten off track on this. You are the way, the truth, and life. Help me to develop my relationship with you, because of who you are, not what you can give. Help me to see, what pleases you. So I can obey you. I thank you for what you did on the cross, for my sins. For taking the penalty of sin away from me. But let me never forget how you suffered, and died. You did it for me. You did it for all of us. I never want to insult you, by just asking what you can give. Yes you do give, but I cannot make it the priority. The priority has to please you, and know you first. In love, in obedience, in serving you. You made me a daughter, that is a servant. To you the King of Kings. This is a relationship. Not a religion. Not rules, regulations, and traditions made by men, or groups. It is knowing you. With love, because you gave your love to me and to all of us.  I am thankful Lord!  Thank you.

In Jesus name. Amen.

I WANT TO BE A NICE PERSON BUT ONE WHO SPEAKS GODS TRUTH IN LOVE ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

I do want to be a nice person, but I want to be one who speaks truth in love.  I am older now, and I have really, in all actuality tried to be a nice person.  All of my life.  

But that did not stop me from getting into physical battles, and yes spiritual ones.  Because there usually is someone who will challenge you, even when you are trying to be nice.  Or speaking truth.  

And it just made me think, because recently, I had an opposing thought from someone, who more or less challenged me, and it made me think.  I walked in love with this person, for the most part, but they brought up feelings that made me think, how dare they challenge me, when they say hypocritical things.  Things I have seen them write.  And I thought about the poison, that can bring in.  I repented.

You know, I want to be nice.  But not for the sake of denying Christ.  Or to please someone else.  To just be a people pleaser.  Yet I know, truth can cut.  It can wound.  It can divide people.  I know.

I have lost a lot of friends, because I have spoken truth.  But I am not going to change my way to be nice, and to see someone I love, or care about, go down the wrong road, or near the fire, and say it harshly, or even abruptly, don’t do that, that will burn you.  Or to warn them about someone who does not speak truth.

So I speak truth.  Praying it will make them see the truth.  Gods truth.  As a warning of love.  Praying they will see what Christ did on the cross for us, and that anybody else who denies Christ as the way, the truth, and life, is someone we should not look up to as leaders.  

I am not perfect.  I have made bad judgment calls.  Even in truth.  And the thing is, we can be deceived, if we don’t know Gods whole truth.  I add that word “whole” because I believe in the King James Bible.  

Yet, many other bible versions are not “whole” and complete, because they have missing scriptures, the content is changed, because the context is changed, and they are corrupt.  Its disobedience, to use anything that God has warned us not to change or add to or delete.  He has warned us throughout my King James, not to do that.

I have used this analogy before, but Christ is the bread of life.  He would not give us junk food.  When He serves us.  But those bible versions, have mold on them.  Mold because they disregarded Gods warnings, and when we share or give scripture and use scripture that has been changed.  There is no true anointing and holiness.  It therefore then becomes junk food.  They are corrupted.

Yes, there may be some truth to the scripture but because it was changed, it is now part truth, part lie.  I warn people all the time, and so many are totally annoyed and withdrawn from me, because I speak this truth.  

Oh I am not fooled.  People, come and go, but they keep me at a distance, because of this truth, I believe in.  Churches, that once embraced me ignore me.  Leaders in the body of Christ won’t even give me the time of day, when I speak to them.

Well, it is what it is.  I know I am just me, and some people look at me, and think I am foolish, as they define this truth as just nonsense.  But they do not see, they are blind.  Yet their intellectual reasoning, and defiance, is foolishness to God.

You would think by now, I would back off.  But instead my armor of God has gotten stronger, and bolder.  In His truth.  

TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY, IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  ISAIAH 8;20.  

All I can do is be obedient to God, and speak this truth.  I will try and be nice about it, but I will never change my mind about this truth.  

PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.  COMPARE SCRIPTURES, AND SEE THE CHANGES.  SEE THE MISSING SCRIPTURES.  SEE THE DECEPTION, THAT THE ENEMY BRINGS TO DECEIVE, BY CHANGING GODS HOLY WORD.  MORE THEN ANYTHING SEE THE SCRIPTURES THAT WARN ALL OF US NOT TO DO ANYTHING WITH GODS HOLY WORD!  

Read at least Revelation 22:18-19 if you value your salvation.  Read it from a King James Bible.  

And if you perceive my caps as not being nice oh well.  But I would rather please God, than anybody.  Even in shouting it out.  

I think my testimony in my life, is proving that, and I hope it always will reflect my loyalty to God in truth.  

His truth, not mine, not yours, not some strange person who sat behind a desk, and came up with some bible that is not truth, but HIS!

Have a blessed day, Elena Ramirez
