From the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth. And even with a question. Which brings doubt.
NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN? GENESIS 3:1 King James.
See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.
The battle will be in the mind. We will be tossed to and fro.
THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. EPHESIANS 4:14. KJV.
See how that scripture talks about doctrine?
We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit. From that tree. And she gave the right answer. But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.
AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE. FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL. GENESIS 3:5 KJV.
What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.
And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil? Because He loves us that much. So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses. That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God.
So we have to be aware of the enemies antics. We have to remember when we doubt. When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous. Thats actually stupid. So I don’t challenge what God says. I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it. That gives me hope. That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth. But Gods truth, will never let me down.
SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH: THY WORD IS TRUTH. JOHN 17:17 KJV.
What does God really say? This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.
Because they do make one question what God really says. But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.
I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings. Of corrupt Bibles. Since, I use a KJV. I don’t get that confusion. Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James. Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying.
Eve did not obey. Adam did not obey. But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better. We do not have to question it. But…by obedience. Thats showing God we are obeying. Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.
If you are in that battle of the mind. In anything, go to God. Rebuke the devil. Thats a spirit of confusion. And God is not the author of confusion.
FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS. I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.
I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.
But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.
Always ask God. Always. In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate. So I can know…..
Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.
Sometimes, approaching someone in truth, is hard. I understand. But sometimes, you have to find the courage to speak it, say it, because as the scripture says, it sets us free.
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. JOHN 8:32 KJV.
I suppose, thats why I am writing this. Because I am searching for truth. But I am not the one withholding it.
I understand, some people have a hard time with truth. I understand, I have the boldness, to speak it, and to reveal it. Now I know there are some things, wisdom, has taught me, about that.
Concerning silence, and I don’t want this to be confused, either. Because there is silence, with grace. And there is silence, with the intention to hurt someone with the “silent treatment.”
But recently, I read a GIF, that said; “Some friends, go for long periods of time, without communicating, but they never question the friendship, and remain friends.”
And I thought…. that used to be me, a few months ago…..
And I won’t get into details. But I have changed my stance. After some time, after some reflection, after letting things settle a bit.
I see how not telling truth, can destroy. Not communicating…..Avoiding truth, making excuses, not being accountable. I no longer trust silence. From anyone. In fact, truth be, I only trust God. I am glad it happened. Because I have learned how things can change. How people can. And only God keeps His word.
But to apply it here….I no longer trust a lack of communication. Because it is hiding a lie, of being offended. Or other things…
You see, silence is not always golden.
Lies, when you trust people, and believe the best in them, yet their motives are different, you see, if only communication had been applied, at the time, then a “lie” would not have had power.
I saw this firsthand. You see, When someone denies the truth, even after you asked them. And you see the evidence of truth, because it was not only obvious, it was not a coincidence. Something was spoken simultaneously. Yet you asked, for the truth, and it was denied. You see the truth, of a lie, because it was not communicated. It tried to protect someone, it tried, to avoid truth. It went into denial….
It tried to be a secret.
But do they not see, it gave place to the enemy? Because he is the father of lies?
And it snowballed. It got bigger, and it tried to destroy. Yet you extended grace.
The wrong kind….even though the motive was heart felt, it was given in a lie.
For, not all people, have the same intention in matters of truth, and friendship, and loyalty, and honesty.
I guess, I am, writing about this, because I am not trying to hurt anybody, or myself. But I am trying, in my own little way, to speak truth and love. Because I want a lie, to be exposed….
But I will not confront someone, and beg for truth. I can be silent too…. I can and have walked away.
I suppose respect has taught me this…..respect for God to do His job in such matters.
But I have my part. He says forgive. I do, yet I think about it…..
But because I know that our Lord, hates liars. He hates and sees, how lies, come from the enemy. He knows, we cannot truly be free, until, we speak truth. For it will set us free. We cannot be silent, if we truly want to be free in Christ. I want truth, for those who were involved, to be free. Thats all. In love, in forgiving, in mercy….
Yet, I want to be free from it, because no matter how much I say, I forgive. I am reminded, of how the enemy destroyed something very precious to me, in friendship. Trust. They say trust is earned.
Maybe it could be earned again, because I do have a gracious heart. I don’t know, and this is not a guarantee, that I would. Because too much silence has gone by.
But I will not use, grace to be silent, to withhold love and communication. Truth! To purposely hurt someone, as it was to me.
It would require sacrifice but not from me. You see, if I had other motives, then I would not respect myself. I would actually understand, even the silent treatment….and maybe that was me, before I truly saw what Christ did. But not now. I have come too far. My sins, are covered, and in fact, I daily go to the throne, in repentance.
But I do respect who I am in Christ, because I will not try to find loop holes, or avoid, my own sins. I go to the cross, and I go to those who have been offended.
And I apologize, when I am wrong. But it is sad, when you have done that, and it was still thrown in your face. People, that do that, did not forgive, not truly. There is the fruit in that. And it does not come from the Holy Spirit. So please, before you judge someones spirit in these matters. Look at what you did first.
Why I write this, is only because I will not let the enemy, think, he won. Because something that is given by God, cannot be taken away, unless it wants to be taken away. True friendships, last a lifetime, even if someone thinks its only a season.
And a friend truly loves at all times. One may say one thing, about friendship, and that it is “Godgiven” but if the fruit reveals a lie, and denial. The gift was denied. It truly, was not recognized as a gift, from God, to honor it. I am talking symbolically. But I am also talking about this, by actions. For it affects the spirituality of a choice. God will not bless a lie.
Because actions, showed, they did not care, that it was God given…. Anything that God gives to us, is holy. Marriage, etc. Even friendship. But if friendship is not treated as holy, and treated like the world would, in actions, and lies. Obscenities…
Well the friendship will break, because God did give it in holiness. But we have the responsibility to honor it, to protect it, to offer communication, and not close the case.
If anything to go to God….and do it His way. For He is the way, the truth, and life.
Same thing with our salvation, you cannot treat what Christ did for you on the cross, shabbily. Because you deny the holiness. This is breaking a covenant. Christ did not break it. One did, by allowing sin.
I suppose this is why God extends grace to us, to come to His throne. Because He loves us, He wants to spare us, the legality of what sin, and lies do. This is why He sent Christ, for only Christ is holy.
But to go to others, as well, and admit a wrong doing. But if you ask for forgiveness, ask for it, because you meant it, not because you got caught in a lie.
Stop making excuses. To clear the slate. To clear your conscious. Do not give the enemy any place in that which you thought was “Godgiven.” Don’t give mixed signals. Focus on what you did first.
Then go to the cross, and see, what our sins, did to Christ.
If other offenses are there, communicate them, don’t hide them in your heart or the other person will never know.
You see, truly as the scripture says. The truth, will set you free. Be free. But you have to recognize the lie. You have to admit the truth, you have to see your part in it. Or you will never grow, to the potential, you could have, in Christ.
I am extending a chance right now. I believe God is too, or I would not be writing this. I love how He uses me. He uses my hurts, He uses, my experiences…..For He knows, I will always try to bring Him glory in these matters.
Maybe to “whom it may concern,” will see this. Will grow. Will not let silence be lost. As a chance. But chances do not last forever.
Maybe thats why I would urge, implore anybody. Get right with God, first, repent, admit the lie. Then go to who you lied to, or who you offended. Don’t think, because you may not see evidence, that you fooled someone.
Because what you did, is you hurt yourself. God did see you doing this. Even if they don’t know. Tell them. Grow…..
Such a fine line. Is it worth it? Thats between you and God. Yes it may hurt, you may be denied. This is not a guarantee that things can be restored. But you freed yourself. Isn’t that important? You are responsible, for your own soul. No matter what….We cannot control others, or manipulate them. In truth or a lie.
Because we never know. Time is precious. So are friendships, so are relationships, and family, but lies only destroy. Don’t lose a chance….
Make it right, because you have and know the good of who God is.
That truly is God given, but He won’t honor lies….
I HAVE NOT WRITTEN UNTO YOU BECAUSE YE KNOW NOT THE TRUTH, BUT BECAUSE YE KNOW IT, AND THAT NO LIE IS OF THE TRUTH. I JOHN 2:21 KJV.
Blessings, Elena Ramirez
So I have a strange dilemma. I have a neighbor, who is not always nice to me. In fact, I think I downright annoy her. She is short with me, and barely says hello. And well, I could react with that in return. But I try, I always try. To be nice, friendly, and kind.
I have noticed the last few times, when they go on vacation, they have not requested, or asked for us to water their flowers. I kind of think she thinks, I will just do it, but then when they come home, she really does not thank me, or us. But her flowers are alive.
So, they just took off yesterday, hubby was outside when they left. He asked as they loaded their trailer, and boat, how long they would be gone? They said Thursday. He said he asked, because that would have been a great time, to say hey, can you watch the house? Can you water our flowers. That was his way of trying to get a courtesy. But no, nothing was asked.
So common sense told me don’t water her flowers. And I feel like sure, I could let the flowers die, but what good would it do? It might teach her a lesson, to communicate, but by then the relationship we have would be at a worse strain. I could be that person and just look the other way. But thats not who I am.
So I have this saying on my wall. And I am praying for guidance, and I think, what would Christ do? And it came to me, water the flowers. Why? Because I see those flowers every day, out my window. I don’t have the heart to look at something and let it die, if I can save it.
Just like Christ, I want to save people. He is my example. Maybe thats why I am always reminding all of us to repent. To know, that we have to clean the slate with Christ. Maybe thats why, because love does things that don’t always seem like the right choice. But do we not know, Gods ways are not our ways?
I am not going to tell her I watered them. I am not asking for thanks. But I am going to just try and do things that love requires, that is not always the norm. I am not going to ask her to ask me to water her flowers. If she cannot see the error of her own ways, thats between her and God. In just being a courteous neighbor. You can’t make people do anything. But I can pray, and I pray God bless them.
Oh well. I may not see the fruit of it in others lives. But I can look out my window, and see those flowers are alive. Because I love, and love makes all things grow.
But let it be the hidden man of the heart in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price I Peter 3:4.
More then ever, it seems that “subliminal” messages, are the norm. But what it reveals, is what is in the heart of the messenger. The giver of the thought….
They are every where. We are inundated with messages, thoughts, inspiration, advertising, and agendas….
Our hearts, are like opened, or closed doors.
And so as a Christian, you want to keep yourself holy in the sight of God. Hard to do in this world we live in. Some things just desensitize us and so you become immune, to many things that may come your way.
Yet, you need to protect your spirit.
I have not heard a message on this, but being led by the Holy Spirit, I agree, and see the importance of this as I write.
Scripture tells us, we worship God in spirit and truth.
God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24.
So what spirits, or spirit, are you led by? For God sees this in truth.
How do we get to that place in holiness, in obedience to what Christ has done for us, as we are cleansed in our spirits, to now be a vessel, an instrument of Christ?
We have to see, we must protect our spirits. By that which we allow. By either reading, watching television, friends that we choose, and yes even in the spiritual entities of the church we attend.
For this very reason, I long for a pure and holy word, so this is why I use a King James bible. But what about the church you attend? Or the voices you listen to? Even in the counsel you ask for?
These “subliminal” messages, you receive, will shape you, will build you, or destroy you. So you need discernment. To know. This is wisdom. To know and see through the intent, and agenda, of the messenger, what is right. What is wrong.
A subliminal message, will hint at the agenda. It will not come to the point, specifically, yet you get the drift of it. You can see, either something is left out, or denied, quietly. Yet it will make you think. It will make you wonder, it will entice you, if you let it. The dictionary, tells us, that it will “influence your mind in such a way that you do not notice.”
It is as if it is a seed, and if you water it, nourish it, it will grow. This can be sin. This can be holiness. You see, it just depends what seed you allow to grow in your spirit. To determine the “fruit” of your tree.
The holy word of God, my King James bible, tells us what Christ said. And He said, do not let any man steal your crown. He said, beware of wolves in sheeps clothing. He said, beware the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy. He told us the enemy is a deceiver. He has paid the price, for our holiness, but are we so naive, like sheep, that we can be led away by a “subliminal” thought?
They are there these thoughts. That come to us.
I just saw one, on a paid commercial on television, where a couple was having a discussion, and it was over a piece of candy. But the difference was she was in bed, with the candy. And I just thought, the subliminal message to any child, would be to think its o.k. to be in bed with candy.
And where are the strong moral, messages? That teach integrity, and honor, and that which is right in the sight of God? They may be gone, in society, but if you are a Christian you have a responsibility to be a message, that does give honor to God.
That is someone, who must live life in honor of God, for what Christ did. So what subliminal message, do people see in you? I do believe we do have to ask that.
Because we already know God does see the intentions of our hearts….
Is your heart open to the messages, that can deceive? Or do you guard your heart….
And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shew thee: for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: delcare all that thou seest to the house of Israel. Ezekiel 40:4.
This message, was paid for in full, by the sacrifice of Christ.
Blessings, my friends, as our hearts ponder on this.
The body of Christ is crippled, and sadly, no one is seeing this. No one calls it out as wrong, and nobody is taking a stand. Well I will. I will, because I love my Lord Jesus. I will, because there are souls at stake. I will, because people, are not seeing the truth. They are compromising who they are in Christ. They have listened to so many who have distorted truth, and have made their own “religion.” I will because I will stand before God. I will write it, and say it is wrong!
The following statement, is not my statement. But because this was shared by a prominent ministry I am using it as an example. These are their words, word, for word. It was not taken out of context, or in part. Let the record show it, for what it is.
Don’t pray and ask God to fight Satan for you. You are the one in authority. Take your responsibility and speak directly to Satan yourself and stand your ground firmly. He will flee!
I have to be honest, when I saw this statement, I felt the hair on my neck stand up! How dare they say this kind of nonsense. Who is the authority? They are talking about? Who is their audience? Is it a born again Christian? Is it someone who has given their heart to Christ? Is it someone who is quoting a compromised Bible? Is it someone who does not know the truth?
Why would they phrase it like that? Don’t pray and ask God to fight satan for you? Whose side are they really on? Thats what I am seeing to question?
Where is the loyalty to God? The submission? I don’t even capitalize the name of the enemy. But they did. That statement, really says a lot, about the stance they take. Responsibility, they threw that out of the window! Responsibility is knowing Gods word, and seeking Him, in every aspect. Including fighting the devil!
The authority, they talk about makes me wonder, is it pride, that thinks they don’t have to pray to God? They can take care of it themselves?
Friends, the King James Bible says, “Pray without ceasing!” Pray!!!! I Thessalonians 5:17. This is how we get victories, this is how we win battles, but we have to pray, they actually say don’t pray and ask God. These are their words not mine!
Yes, there are certain, things God has given me authority over. But the scripture is very clear, in times, of battle, with the enemy, the battle is the Lords. And the submission must be given to God, to have Gods protection. This statement does not address that. Yes there is power, in the name of Jesus, there is authority. But this statement did not say that either!
No, it is not me, it is God, that has that authority. and He gives me yes, authority. Yes, as His child, yes, as His servant. But I still have to submit to Him, first. Then I can have full assurance, by the name of Jesus. They don’t say that in this statement. This is what the scripture says. And this is why, I question ministries, that say stupid things like this.
I think what bothers me the most about this, is that, it is questionable, and vague. So I question it. No matter what the intention was of that ministry, it is a “Mixed Signal” and that is confusing to whoever would read that!
But I never question Gods holy word, from the King James Bible, and this is what we are called to do to defeat the devil. Along with putting on the armor of God.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7.
To me it is stupid. And usually, I am gracious, to give some the benefit of the doubt. But when a high profile ministry says something like that, and also excludes truth, it makes me wonder…What happened to them? I once enjoyed watching them on television.
What Bible are they using? This is not the first time, I saw discrepancies, that I have challenged, and even wrote to them about because of the Bible they used, but this actually got me righteously angry! I am not judging them, I am seeing the fruit, and that is not of God….
Did you know in Galatians 1, it talks about those who pervert the gospel. Read it from a King James Bible. It says they are ACCURSED! I don’t want anything to do with a ministry that perverts Gods word!
They left out that part, that is so important to God. Submitting to Him. Then resisting the enemy. Then the enemy would flee. Why? Because when we submit to God, He is on the case! No devil can stand against God. But our part is to submit to God!
So many souls, read that, nonsense, from this high profile ministry, which I will not name. But how are they to know the truth, unless they know Gods word, themselves? The reactions on that post, was yes, and amen. How the blind, are blinded, because the enemy has deceived them. Trusting these “so-called” prophets. No wonder, so many are crippled. But this statement is so empty, so vague, and yes, so disingenuous, that it makes me think. Sadly…..
It makes me want to scream to Christians, to beware, to be careful not to be deceived. Christ told us let no man deceive you. Matthew 24:4-5. See it from a King James.
We have to know the truth. Christians, and whoever is reading this, believer or non-believer. I implore you. Seek the truth! Seek the true and living God. Seek God and pray. Know the scriptures yourself. Know a King James Bible, so you have the anointing. The holiness, of a Bible, that has not been changed, deleted words, or added words. Use a Holy King James Bible!
If you are in a spiritual battle, because of sin, repent, seek God, submit to God, and His truth, and He will guide you! But always pray to God, always be humble in His sight! Repentant! Because of what Christ did on that cross!
It is sad. This time, in my life, there are very few pastors, or ministries, that I can relate to. The body of Christ should be united. But we are not all on the same page, scripture speaking, and understanding with discernment the true and holy word. Because the word has been changed, and distorted, and because people do not know the difference. People are being deceived. We have to see this.
I pray, for my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray, to shout it out, to warn souls, to save souls, to be careful. This affects so many things, concerning who we are in Christ, and what I see right now, is a church, a body of believers, that do not believe the same things, and I pray God does a new thing. If He uses me, so be it.
If you believe, as I do, about this, I would love to hear from you!
But I see those, who should know truth, and instead, they say strange things like this. Is it pride? Is it wealth, and power, in the body of Christ that has caused them to speak such strange things? I don’t know. I won’t point the finger and I won’t name them, because thats not who I am, but I am seeing this, and all I can do is, seek God.
But I am alarmed.
As I submit to God, as the authority, I will not be deceived by false prophets.
Just my thoughts today…..Elena Ramirez
I have to admit, I get sad, when I hear pastors, or even other Christians, have a false sense of their salvation.
They take it for granted. They call it a free gift, but yet, because they do not see what Christ really did for them, by His suffering, and on the cross, they abuse it.
They walk in this false sense of “grace” that the devil deceives them with, a lie from hell itself, and they do not have the fear of God, nor do they uphold the “Law.” From the Old Testament.
Folks, Christ said, that many are going to say Lord, Lord, and He is going to say, I never knew you. Why because you did not really know Him. And when He says that, when you stand before Him, will that give you access to heaven? I don’t believe so.
Again, I suggest, what voice are you listening to? What Bible version, are you reading? I have said this in my book, HOW TO HAVE FAITH, but you do not want a coloring book, to take the tests in life. Let alone your faith! You want Gods pure word.
This is important, because you need the purity of Gods word, to be in place. I suggest the King James Bible. But know this, that it is your responsibility, to find the truth.
FOR NOT THE HEARERS OF THE LAW ARE JUST BEFORE GOD, BUT THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED. ROMANS 2:13.
Please see this scripture carefully. You are not justified, unless you keep and do what the law says!
Do you try to keep the law, even though you are a Christian? Do you have the fear of God? Do you discount the old testament? But only embrace parts of Gods word?
