NOTE TO SELF: ABOUT LOVE… By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3017.jpgNOTE TO SELF:

Concentrate on the love. Not the differences. Love a brother and a sister in Christ. Avoid, spats, minor, differences of opinion. Pray for others, whether right or wrong, we are called to love one another. Not just by word, but by spirit, and truth, as we worship our Lord. He sees. He knows.

Forgive, some things are not even worth pondering on. Yes, keep your dignity, in Christ, but as you sometimes shake the dust off, keep walking in love….Love never, ever fails.

Love is what Christ said we would be known by. Whether a baby Christian, or a seasoned Christian, does not agree. We are supposed to be on the same side. Love fears God. I do…..

Signed, In Christ, and His love,

I want to be, extremely careful here.  Because it could be perceived as judging someone.  And strangely, many people know the scripture that says do not judge.  

But the enemy, has twisted it, so much, that even non-believers will call you out on it, and say, you should not judge.  But the meaning, and the other scriptures that talk about judging are thrown out the window.  But this is what happens, when people do not obey God.  Nor when they are not on the same page, of the Bible.

Yet we are called to judge righteously.  We are called to warn one another.  

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.  John 7:24.  

Nevertheless, if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.  Ezekiel 3:21

But, yes, I do want to be careful.  Why?  Because we all sin, and we all come short of the glory of God.  We all do.  None is righteous. And I know that for myself as well. This is also King James scriptural. 

And I do want to be so careful, not to make people feel bad. But sometimes, when you know truth, and you share truth, from a King James Bible, it is a two-edged sword.

And I find, sadly, very, sadly, many Christians do not know their bible, because they use corrupted bibles.  They use something that has been tampered with, and the anointing, and holiness is gone.  So when you share scripture with them, even in the matter, of trying to make someone see, that these versions are corrupt, they get angry, and they get very defensive.  

Yet, you are showing them scripture, as to what God says, that we are not to change, add, or delete scripture, and they argue with you.  Here is one of many, but read from a King James.  Revelation 22:18-19.  Did you know you could lose your salvation?

Yet, they have no scripture to define the truth, because what?….You are going to argue with what God says?  I find that so odd.  

I have been told to do more research.  But I do not need to challenge myself, to investigate more, when the truth is right there in my preserved King James Bible, that has been preserved for 400 years.  And I see the discrepancies.  In comparing different bibles to the King James.  And I see very sadly, the deity of Christ is diminished, a little here, a little there…

That in itself gives proof, of the validity of this Bible.  I obey, from that lump.  Not from something that has been corrupted.  

I have faith in it.  I see the discrepancies.  I will not believe lies.  For God gives me discernment.  Because I obey.  But they that dispute this and defend other bible versions believe the lies, and are blinded.  

Behold ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.  Jeremiah 7:8. 

Now they say they are Christians.  But again, we are not on the same page.  And there are so many other different examples to relate to, but yet are we not brothers and sisters in Christ?

Are we not called to love one another?  To show we are yoked with Christ?

So how do you treat someone like that?  That says they are a Christian yet, they hate you?  The answer is with love.  Pray for them.  And remember we are not to be yoked with darkness.  

God will do the final judging.  But we are not called to be yoked with unbelievers.  

This is one reason, why people do not attend church.  Because of hypocrisy, and because people do not always practice what they preach.  Or what is preached to them.  Or love is not evident.  I do attribute a big sense of disobedience, because we are not all on the same page with God.  It is so evident.  

We are to be united, and divided we will fall.  End times I believe are very close upon us.  And there are scoffers….

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His coming?  II Peter 3:3-4 Read in its entirety King James.  

Now look at this verse carefully below.  

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. II Peter 3:7

God has separated His word, the King James for 400 years.  Isn’t that enough time to prove the authenticity?

I myself, I cannot listen to leaders, or pastors, that do not use a King James.  I rely on the sweet Holy Spirit, to be my guide.  

I believe I am a seasoned Christian. In my walk with God, I have changed, I have grown, so I see many discrepancies.  But it has come with a price.  And I take the narrow path.  Not the wide gate that the world does.  That is King James scriptural. Where I walk alone, often.  Yet I am not alone, for Christ is with me.  But I do long, for sweet fellowship.  With other believers. And especially those who understand my stance, concerning the Bibles we use.  

It just makes me sad, because, I am reminded of scripture where there was war in heaven.  And it talks about the angels, and how they fight.  Can you just think about how grievious that is to God as well.  Loyalty, and obedience are so important to God.  Yet, these angels fought with each other.  Those with God.  And those that betray God, and align themselves with the devil.  It is a tragic thing, to even think.  But it is scriptural.  

And there was war in heaven:  Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not:  neither was their place found any more in heaven.  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil and satan, which deceiveth the whole world, he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  Revelation 12: 7-9.

Do you notice in this scripture it talks about how the enemy deceives.  Well he deceives in taking a holy word, and corrupting it. By changing it.  So the believer will be tapping into a word, that is part truth, part lie, because someone changed it. Where else would he get away with it, if believers do not obey God? And they do not use a King James.  This will deceive the whole world.  

Were they all friends at one time these angels?  Even in the name of the Lord.  Yes I believe so.  

But as true believers, we can test and try a spirit.  The spirit of deception is in the earth.  So we are called to try a spirit.  Here on earth.  

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world. I John 4:1 

How do I try them?  By seeing what bible they use. I just think it is sad, that there are many brothers and sisters in Christ, and we don’t agree.  And love is not evident.  And what will Christ say, when we stand before HIM?  I never knew you….this is also scriptural.

All I know, as I walk with Christ.  I know, that my love walk must be evident, and I must pray for these souls, before it is too late.  But I will not yoke myself with someone who scoffs at the truth of God.  Or ignores even the warnings.  I just cannot.  The price of Christ giving His life for all of us was too great.  And I cannot compromise that.  I value my salvation, and I work it out with fear and trembling of God.  

Wherefore my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.  Phillipians 2:12.

 Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5

I had to make this title strong, so perhaps someone can see this to understand.  New Years resolutions will not work without bringing it to the obedience of Christ.  

So many people make New Year resolutions, but they fail. Because they do not bring it to Christ.

It begins with a thought.  It begins with the imagination.  What you see, or think becomes you.  For as He thinketh in his heart, so is he….Proverbs 23:7.

 What are you thinking?  What are you putting your energy and attention to?  So you need to choose wisely, or you may think or imagine something that is not good, right, or of God. Let alone healthy for you or others.  You cannot let your own mind ponder on that thing that is not right in the sight of God, you must see it as God does, and then obey Him.  

As the first scripture above tells us.  This is why many resolutions do not work on their own, because unless Gods spirit is present, one may be trying to do it on their own, and that may not always prove to be effective.  

I am older now, I am a lot wiser, and the wisdom I share in this, is all to the glory of God, and none else.  Because anything we try to do, in the natural on our own, will not have the same affect as to giving it to God in obedience.

I have experience in this.  I understand, how we can make choices, and do things that are not healthy for us, spiritually and yes physically.  I have done things in my own life, that were lifestyle choices, that hurt me.  Choices, that controlled me for lack of a better word.  Like smoking,  getting high.  Letting the wrong people into my life.  Choices.

And it is always a choice.  I am not going to try and force you to believe me.  This is a choice.  In fact, I follow Christ in this example.  He is a gentleman.  He does not force us.  This is not His way.  He gives us His holy word, an anointed, holy not corrupted word, and that is my King James Bible. And in that Holy word, He tells us who He is, and what He expects.  But it is a choice.  It is even a choice, what Bible one uses.  But experience, and research has shown me this truth.  

And those that reject Him reap the consequences.  And those that find Him, find life eternal.  Not only is there the promise for life after we die, but life now on earth, can change, to a life, that He intended, if we just seek Him.  A life fulfilled.  A life complete, with joy, and peace, and a sense of who He is.  In all aspects, and that nothing is impossible with God.  

But those that reject who He is, do reap, what the devil intended.  And sadly, they do not know when they reject Christ, they are rejecting the only chance to make a “wrong right.”  They look at it intellectually, and not spiritually.  

This is why Christ came for us.  To pay the penalty of our sins.  To stop the works of the enemy.  To give us a new chance.  Yes in our resolutions.  In all aspects of life.  We can live abundantly.  But we have to begin by seeing we are sinners, and repent, and make the choice to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  We have to see, we must not give place to the enemy, but we must submit to God.  This is also scriptural.  

I was blind spiritually at one time.  This is where I started with my own self-destructive ways, that were controlling me.  And anything can control you if you let it.  From eating, to smoking, getting high, sexual active etc.  This is the way of the world.  

And the world, if you see does not offer a way to control these things, effectively.  Nor does it condemn immorality. If anything, it promotes these things.  You see it on television, in movies and yes even acceptance, of things that are perverted.  More and more, the world, has adapted these life style choices, ideologies, and ways of thinking, that go against God.  And they call that normal.  

But God is not mocked, and we do reap what we sow.  Galatians 6:7.  And there is no peace saith my God to the wicked.  Isaiah 57:21.  And I see so many people rejecting God, and choosing lifestyles, that are against who God is.  If you reject God it is your choice, and you have no one to blame but yourself.  

No, if you really want a change, and you want to make it work for you.  You do have to give it all to God.  You have to obey God, you have to take His commandments to heart, His ways, His principles, to heart, and you have to want to live a clean good life.  

And let us get one thing straight.  Just because you gave your heart, to Christ one time does not mean, that its a done, deal.  No, you have to want to grow.  And many people do not grow, because they think they are fine, the way they are.  

You have to work out your Salvation, in fear of God, and with trembling.  This is also scriptural.  Look up these words in a King James Bible.  This is the scripture reference.  Philippians 2:12

Treating your salvation as precious.  Something to honor, and protect.  Because you do not want to be deceived by the devil.  Nor lose your salvation, by having your name “blotted” out of the lambs book of life.  

And maybe to some extent you are a good person.  But, by denying who Christ is, in your own life, or just living day to day, is not living, that is barely existing, when you could thrive.  

No true living is when you search for God daily, with all your being.  Recognizing the devil, comes to kill, steal and destroy, so you watch your own self.  Christ told us this difference, but Christ came to give us life abundantly. Read again John 10:10, as the reference KJV.

You choose Christ’s ways.  Repenting, daily, is something I believe in.  It cleanses the soul, and gets you on the right path.  

And you disciple yourself.  Which is derived from “disciplining” yourself in Christ.  When you love the Lord, truly Love Him, you know your body is the temple of the living God.  So no, you do not want to hurt that temple, or others, and whatever you are doing that is making you “self-destruct” you take to the obedience of Christ.  You obey the command ment first to love God with all your heart, and then your neighbor as yourself.  

You stop the whining, the complaining, and the pity party, that does not do you or anybody else any good, and you take it to the obedience of Christ.  You change.  There are so many pitfalls, we can fall into, if we do not see the signs.  We walk down the road of life.  And we do not always see what is up ahead.  But if you walk with Christ, He does give you signs, and those signs may say, don’t walk that path.  

I saw those signs myself in my life.  I made some terrible choices, that were not only sin, in Gods eyes, but they were causing me to go down a road of destruction.  I had to stop.  I had to repent.  I had to recognize the son of God, who came to set me free.  

And when I did, I began the most beautiful relationship I have ever had.  No one can take the place of who Christ is to me.  I will never, ever go back to those ways, those habits, because I would lose this relationship. Christ is the great Shepherd.  He will guide you, He does me.   

This is why, when I talk to people, and they get it confused with religion, I explain the difference.  Rules, traditions, rituals, made by men, and groups, will never, ever get the results that I can have with Christ.  In relationship.  They cannot.  In fact, religion from the choice, I told you, is imposing, rude, and harsh.  

They are not gracious, compassionate, or understanding, as to what Christ can do.  So when I have a problem I go to God, and if you need to talk to someone, yes talk to someone, but talk to someone who understands the ways of God, for counsel.   

I know from the word of God, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Paraphrasing Phillipians 4:13.  I can.  

I don’t give up, even where I am now, in my older years.  Every day, I reach for the goal of who I can be in Christ.  And some things do take time.  

But its not up for debate.  I know that knowing Christ has changed my life.  My choices.  And even now, I have a private resolution, I bring to the obedience of Christ, because I want to grow, and be the best I can be in Him.  For next year….

So if you are really serious, about making a resolution, and making it work.  Take it to the obedience of Christ my friend.  Don’t compromise who you are.  Don’t doubt that you can do it.  Don’t be afraid, that it is too late.  It’s never too late, when we open our eyes, and give it totally to the obedience of Christ.  Speak it, there is power in your words, speak who you are in Christ.  Faith pleases God.  

Yes we do reap what we sow.  This is a principle, that the world calls karma.  But don’t look at it that way.  Don’t look at it as the world sees it.  Look at it the way Christ can to make the corrections for you.  Yes, He corrects those He loves.  Let Him correct you.  Give it to Christ.  

Let Him turn those consequences, into faith, into hope, that 2015 can be a new year for you, with a difference.  Plead the blood of Jesus, and know Christ came to set you free, and yes free indeed.  

You can do it.  You can meet your goal.  I want to inspire you, to see yourself and who you can be in Christ.  Healed.  Is that a goal?  That can be physically or spiritually.  Well by His stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  

You can be stronger, wiser, and more at peace, if you just take it to the obedience of Christ.  He will show you the way.  He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  He will make a way.  To meet your resolutions my friend.  Have hope, don’t give up.  

In the miracle of who Christ is.  This is why we have the Christmas spirit. A gift in the “presence” of our Lord, and savior.  This is a present.  This thought of taking it to the obedience of Christ.  Can meet that new year resolution.  This new year can be yours, in Christ.  

Happy New Year, with blessings and love, 

Elena Ramirez 

SACRILEGIOUS ~ ARE YOU MOCKING CHRISTMAS?


It is really sad, that in this time, we live in, that we have come to the place, where we see our society, mocking, and defaming, the things of sanctity, of Holiness, of God.  Of Christmas…..

I turn on my television, and I hear reports, of famous actors, making a mockery of this, and that of God.  You read it in the news reports, that someone, is opposing, or enforcing, fining someone, for just expressing Christ.  In HOA’s rules, or whatever.  Schools, not even singing Christmas songs.  Or singing Christmas songs, but changing the lyrics from Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays.  Stores, and merchants, instructing their employees, to say Happy Holidays, instead of Merry Christmas.

America, is not fighting for their faith.  Or so it seems, because there is a passiveness.  And our rights, are diminshing….Our rights to worship, to believe, should be accepted.  To pray….But instead, it is all so controversial.  This is what our founding Fathers, came here for.  For freedom in religious rights, and expression.

I just saw a report, where a famous actress (if you want to call her that) played the virgin Mary, and she spoke profanity.  And people review this, and they accept it.  As humor.

You know, I just have to say right here, God is not mocked.  In any aspect.  And they will reap, what they sow.  They will stand before God, when their life is over, and will have to give an account, of what they did.  To Christians. By slandering the name of God, and by using His name, in curse words, etc.  By not accepting His gospel.  God will have His final say.  He may not be saying anything, now, but they will reap, what they sow.  We all will.  But one prays, to hear….”Well done, good and faithful servant!”  At least I do….

And I would not wish “hell” on anyone.  Even my worst enemy.  In fact, I pray for my enemies.  I pray, for those who have so much hate in them, that they want to hurt others for believing in Christ.  I pray for their souls.  Because I know, what it means to believe, in Christ, and what it does to not believe.  And I would never trade my faith, my hope, the beauty of who He is in my life.  The peace, and the joy, I have, by believing His word.  But they will perish, and will regret it…..

Christmas, has been so commercialized, and the true meaning of who Christ is,has been rejected, and neglected, in the meaning.  Its about Christ, the son of God, who was sent to this world, to save us.  If we only believe.  Born of a virgin, born into humble beginnings, because He understood.  His life, was planned by God, so if we believe, we can have hope in who He is.  But the world, has perverted it.

As Christians, it is our responsibility, to teach this to our children, grandchildren, and to be a voice of light, in a dark world.  The world does not know.  Its sad, and pathetic, that truly the true meaning of Christmas is not being expressed, by musicians, by the media, by Hollywood, and by us, as Christians.

It is sad, to say that, because when you know the saving grace of Christ, one knows, how merciful, and kind He is.  I know… The great sacrifice, of His life, for us.  That Christ went to the cross, for each and every one of us, that believes.  He gives us this chance in our lifetimes.  To change, to accept His ways, to live a better life.  To have peace, hope in something….

But, some are so intent, in defaming, that which is good.  Mocking it.

Galatians 6:7

BE NOT DECEIVED:  GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  

With no respect.  If they only knew….but how will they unless we tell them?  Unless we show them, by our own testimonies, the goodness of God, through Christ?  That He is the way, the truth, and life?  How will they know?  My heart yearns, to be that light, to show others in darkness, that the son of God, is the light of the world…..

But it seems at Christmas time, there is more of a outcry, from the world, from unbelievers, to try and put down, things related to Christ.  Christ~ianity, Christ~mas, Christ~mas trees, and on, and on, and on.

Trying to take away the rights, of believers, trying to disfuse, the beauty that has to do with Christ.  And why, sadly, and some cannot relate to this, but they are led by the devil.

I pray, for our future generations, if Christ does not return by then.  Because to have freedom, to express, who you are in Christ, is a right.  But when you know who Christ is in you.  You know your own rights, in living.  According to Gods standards.  And there is no other standard, to test, when you know Gods truth.  You know the difference, between holy and evil.  Good and bad….

Our American soldiers, have fought for that right.  They are fighting right now.  This is a religious war we are in, a spiritual battle.  But there is also a battle, in the heavenlies.  And God is going to win this battle.  It says, so, according to Gods word.  (Read Revelation)

Look I don’t know who my audience is in this.  But, if I could only plead with you, to stop, and see, and STOP the persecution, the hate, the evil, by denying Christmas.  You would see a difference, if you only went to the throne of God, and repented, and asked God, to show you the truth, the true spirit of Christmas, He would.

Read Luke chapters 1 and 2.  From Gods Holy word, the Bible.  Say a prayer, even if you do not know how to pray.  Ask God, to reveal the truth, the beauty of Christmas, and see God do something so astounding, that will reveal, love.  Christmas is love.  For God is love….

Please see this, and no longer mock that which is Holy.  Are you mocking Christmas? I plead with you, for your own soul.  I do pray for you.  Open your eyes, if you do not, you will regret it, for eternity.

And I pray, as believers, we would shine, our lights, brighter, and bolder for Christ, as our gift to him, for the gift of Salvation, He has given us.  Merry Christmas, Glory to God in the highest peace, on earth, and good will to all. Luke 2:14.  

Just my thoughts with Christmas love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I praise you, and thank you for Christmas, for Christ, who came to save the world.  Help us, as believers, protect us, from the lies of the enemy, and give us utterance, to speak truth, and love.  Concerning who Christ really is.  And the true meaning of Christmas.  Use this, for your glory, in Jesus name.  Amen.

GETTING OUT OF THE BOX ~ THINKING WITH CHRIST!


Does God love us, even though we do not know him?  Or we may know him, but we keep missing the mark?

Yes we know John 3:16.  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Yes, God loves us the way we are.  But, because of who He is, He knows, we can have potential, that far exceeds our own expectations.

Today, I want to, tap into that source, of who He is.  With love, with His word, with prayer, and praise.  I know His word is the key.  I want to expect, great blessings, but more then anything, I want to see my faith, reaching those new heights.  To speak to my mountains.  To change, if I am doing anything wrong.

I do not want to stay the way I am, I want to reach others for Christ.  And more then anything, I want to see my life fulfilled, because of who He is.  I want to grow every day. Never content, with who I am, but because of who He is in me.

I have such a strong sense, a determination today, as I write this.  That I can only attribute it, to the Holy Spirit, speaking to me, prompting me, motivating me…..I feel so different.  Its that feeling, that “I know, that I know.”  And it just gives me that “unction to function!”

Today, I am content, I am thankful, grateful.  For each and everyone of my blessings, that God has provided.  Not by me, not even my husband, or my own family, but by God. And I am so grateful for my family.  They bring me so much.  But this glory goes to God.  For He, is life, and life is not life without Him.  God, my Father, my Lord, who sustains me. By His mercy, and grace.

But I sense, I am not reaching my full potential, so I am stirring up, my spirit, I am stirring up your spirit, and anybody else who may read this, to know, there is a way!  Christ, is that way, the truth, and life.

I am not content in the sense, that I am just happy, to let life go by me.  Without giving it my all, and all.  Sometimes, we can become complacent, and you know, it is good to rest at the feet of the Lord, and not get into spiritual battles, but when one has opportunity, to do great things for God, for others, for themselves, then they should tap into that.  And take a risk!  Take a chance.  Get out of your comfort zone, and explore the options.

Christ is holding your hand, and will guide you.  I know some pretty talented, people…..(everybody I know)  For you see, you each possess, a gift, a calling, a special talent, or attribute, that you excel at.  No one else, can do what you do, for it is your unique blessing, God has given you.  But many just let it coast for them.

I refuse to do that, any more.  Any chance, I get to share the good news of Jesus Christ, especially, here in my writing, I am going to be first in line.  I am going to run up there, and wait, for my chance.  Why? Because of who Christ is. Because of what He has done for me!

Many say, that once you reach success, one may slow down, or get lazy in trying.  I would hope that would not be, the case for me.  I want to get past the obstacles.  I want to be a soul winner, in a big way.

It would not matter if I reached success. From the perspective of the world.  I do want success, but because of who I am in Christ.  For, the goal, the objective, always, as Christians, is to live a life worthy of Christs sacrifice.  It means, being an example of love.  To help others, reach Salvation, for their souls, to spare them from hell.  And to bring glory and honor and praise to God, for his plan.

So you see, there are so many souls who really do not know Christ.  So it is our responsibility in this life, to serve God, and others in this. I can only commit, that what I do in my writing, praying God will guide me, to reach others for His Kingdom.  Even if it is just one soul, who may read this at a time.  Angels rejoice, when one sinner, accepts Christ, and ensures their salvation. Luke 15:10.  So even if it is one soul at a time.  I want to make a difference.

So, I am thinking out of the box.  I am thinking past, what others may think of me, or by those who try to stop me.  By reaching out, and discouraging me, or speaking against me.

Have you ever heard of the theory of the crabs in the box, on the sand, and every time, one tried to get out, another crab would try and block it, or stop it?  Well, I have known some crabby people in my life. I have known people, who could have stepped, up, and try to help me, but they let the opportunity fail.  And fall.

They knew I was in ministry.  Some knew, (not all) but some knew, I was a soul winner, and they hurt me.  Some again…(not all).  But those that did….They knew, I had a good word.  They knew I was a soul-winner.  They knew, I was trying to get my book out in the market, when I self-published it.  ( A Book Of Remembrance~ 365 Days to a Personal Relationship with God~ A journal)  They knew, I was looking for a publisher, and they had connections.  They knew, I could speak publicly, and yet denied me access to their churches.  To speak to their women, to their groups.

I have seen some jealous people, who do not try to help, others, because they see the inadequacies of themselves.  Or they just hated me.  (see my post “Have you Been Hurt by Religous people, you thought, were brothers and sisters in Christ.)

They knew….and all I can say, is I forgive them.  And God bless and help them.  I believed, even though, they knew, it was not my time.  I knew I had to grow some more too.  I knew, I had to let God totally change me, and refine me.  It is a daily process, of commitment.  God knows, so even though, I say, “they knew and did not Help me.”

GOD KNEW…..I know, God had to make changes.  So I am at peace with it.  Maybe I am ready now, I don’t know.  I do know this.  There is a God, and He has His ways.  He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  And I know it more, then I ever knew it.

But some knew….and they did not help. And I have to express that, maybe even to purge it.  But it is o.k. I am at peace with it, because I want God to get the glory, and honor for it.  And God has the right people, with the right heart, for Him, and the vision God has given to each of us, to fulfill it. For the souls, we are to reach His Kingdom.

It will be done.  Because I am getting out of my box of thinking, with God.

Dear one, I know I am not perfect.  I am not always tactful, I try, but sometimes, I do make mistakes.  I can be blunt.  It can offend.  I can come on very strong.  But, you know what, if I am strong, I am strong because of Christ.  If I am blunt, it is because I know the truth.  If I err, I pray, I err on the side of love.

I never, want to hold any one back.  And if I can help someone, in the future, when, I become successful in the sense, that I can share blessings….I can share money, or favor, or opportunity, I will.  Because I know, what it is like, to need help, and people deny you.  And I don’t want to be that person, who holds anybody back, in their gifts and callings.  I know what it feels like to crave, to need help, and be ignored.  To be rejected…..With all my faults, I pray, never to put someone down, and not reach out, and give a helping hand.  At least to show them the Lord, to give them hope.  Giving love….Not even a hand out, but dignity, to give a helping hand.  Every one needs help. I don’t care who you are.  We all need God, and we need each other.

For I have learned, all of this, but I am getting out of my box of despair, even today.  I am getting out of that box, of negative thinking.  I am getting out of that box, that holds me, and others back.  I am getting out of my box with thinking, its not possible.  It is possible.  With God all things are possible.  Luke 1:37. I am getting out of my box with Christ.

I find it ironic, that my writings are entitled:  “Just My Thoughts” and yes, they are my thoughts, but they have come from experience, from life, from the hard knocks, from loneliness, desperation, sickness, and by healing, and by the mind of Christ, who comforted me, spoke to me, loved me even in my sins, and He has prompted me.  My thoughts, come from Him, and His love, and I will never ever deny, or be so proudful, to think it is just me.  Its God almighty!

So, I am getting out of my box.

And not when I am dead, and resurrected, but now with Him.  LOL. He promised, life, and life abundantly, and I am going to live my life in Christ, past my expectations, and tap into who He is.  Seriously!

How about you?  Are you ready to get out of the box, out of your comfort zone, with Christ?  All things are possible with him.

Today, is a gift, God has given us, not tomorrow, because no one, can claim tomorrow.  Or yesterday, for it is the past.  But the presence now of Christ, is the time, in His presence, and it is a “present.” I am opening the box today, and receiving the gift, Christ has for me today.

I am getting out of my box of own limited thinking with Christ.  The secret to thinking with Christ, is from the word of God.  Just thought, I would express that, again, to give you the key…..

Just my thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, and Praise you, and worship you in spirit, and truth.  You know my heart, and I pray worthy to do great things, as I think out of my own confinement.  As I think out of just what I see.  Or feel.  I claim the mind of Christ, for new awareness, of the possibilities, because of Christ.  I bind anything, that is not of you.  I release the blessings, and the open doors, from heaven to do your work.  To do your will, to think out of my box.  To be effective.  I bind your enemy, by the blood of Jesus, and claim a hedge of protection for me, my loved ones, and for your servants.  Lord, I am believing for great things to be done, in your name.  For your glory, for your honor, and for your praise.  In Jesus name.  Let the lost be saved, by my works, that you give me.  That truly come from your Kingdom.  Inspire your people, the lost, by my works.  So that many can come to your throne.  To know love.  For you are love.  Our Lord Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice, that makes this all possible.  Amen

NOTE:  Today, as I post this, it is the anniversary of my Fathers death, many, many years ago.  And it just made me realize, my dad, would want me to be positive, to think outside of the box, to trust God.  After all, he prayed for me.  To be born.  Long story, short, mom, was not able to have children.  Dad prayed for me, and well, I have come full circle in prayer….so wow, this is a milestone, in who I am in Christ, to declare this.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN HURT BY RELIGIOUS PEOPLE YOU THOUGHT WERE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST?


I have.  I have been hurt by religious people, that I thought, were brothers and sisters in Christ.

You know, I think, that is the most grievous sense of betrayal, one can receive, when they are hurt by people, they loved, in the body of Christ.

I had been in a place of authority, where I served God, and served others, in prayer.

I could give the details, but I won’t because I do not want to hurt the people that hurt me.  Or the church, I was affiliated with, the pastors….

But, it hurt me so much, because for a long while I did not understand it.  Later, here, and there, I picked up pieces, of this, and that, and I understood.  But it was still a lie from the devil.

And then I learned the meaning of the scripture, of Revelation 12:10:

AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHERN IS CAST DOWN WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT.

For what had been said about me was a lie from the devil.  The accuser of the brethern, the devil, stopped me where I was serving God.  And I was accused, and I was slandered, and I was spoken of by false witnesses.  And it hurt me.  In fact, when I was fired, which I was, I came home, and cried, and threw up.  It hurt me that bad.  Because I loved them.  I loved, what I did for Christ, and I knew, somehow, the devil, had made people, believe a lie.

I even had a couple, tell me they “marked” me, like by some examples of the Bible.  And when I see some religious groups, who do things like that I cringe.  Because no one has the right to judge.  Not like that.

And I know, their are some Judas and Jezebel,type people, and spirits, and you do not want them in your groups, or churches.  But, I am a friend to Christ.  I was serving, I was winning souls.  So I knew, the devil wanted me out of there.  But even in that, my “method” of saving souls was questioned.

Religion….it scares me.  I have seen people, in great numbers, coming together, to hurt someone……..Shunning, rejecting, snubbing and making someone an outcast.  I know what it meant and felt like, to get the “cold shoulder.”  All of sudden people, who would run to embrace me, now ran from me.  An outcast.  That outcast was me.  So, I know. And it was not my imagination.

Consequently, after some time, some bridges were mended. By some.  And I did forgive, for that is what Christ has taught us, but true reinforcement, was never reinstated, nor, was any explanation, given to me, counsel, or by that, any apologies.  Though, I did forgive.

And even here, I say “God bless them.  Lord, help them, to see, the damage they are doing.  Let them see, the error of this, that they are being used by the devil.  Lord, open their eyes.  To truth, and love, not lies, let them, see Lord.”  I pray, for souls, who come in the name of the Lord, but they really do not display the fruit of love, or the Holy spirit.  People make mistakes.  So, I want to be able to release them, in love.  Even though, it was the greatest hurt, I ever felt.

I know, God can restore.  And I know, God can redeem the time.  So I am not bitter.  What the devil intended, for evil, I know, even this, God can turn for the good.  Maybe even for you.

Now, why God is bringing it up to me now, only He knows.  But I am an open book, for Him, to use, perhaps, for someone, who is going through, what I went through, or could also be in a position to hurt someone.  In the body of Christ.  I don’t know.  I do know, that it hurt me so bad, so deeply, that I am very reserved.  I do not serve, in any church any more.  Or other organizations, or ministries.

And in fact, I do not have a place, that I call a church home.  We had left, but then returned.  After a short amount of time, after the shock, and, we had stayed at the church, for a long while, so I could just prove, that I would not be run out, nor would I give into being a victim.  I held onto the only dignity I had, the truth.  But after a while, I just felt the Lord telling me, to move on, so we did, as a family.  And it so affected all of us in my family.  They were hurt by it too….

We, go to different churches, and I have learned to be reserved.  Because of religious people, who have hurt me.  They were hard, stoic, judgmental, and with the attitude, that they were better, than others with their self-righteous judgements.

I go worship, and come back home.  Because the word of God says, do not forsake the assembling of yourselves.  But, I do not get involved, for the most part.  Unless, considered, and asked.  I guess, I am afraid, and I do not trust people.  Now I have to interject, here, because I know the word of God says, fear is a sin.  Is it fear of people I don’t know.  I don’t want to sin, I want to walk in love.  But, I am extremely cautious.  Is that o.k.?  Anyway, I so want to be used by God, and I will have to learn to trust again.  But, I do not now….

Unless, they prove themselves, to love me.  Or more then anything, they prove themselves, by the scripture, by the word of God, that Christ taught, to love one another.  To not judge.  I test the spirits.  I am called to do that.  By the word of God.  And I encourage you to do the same.  To see the fruit.  I may not tell them I am testing them.  But I do.

By love, by compassion, by kindness, by the word of God.  And if they express it.  Yes, I would be willing, to be more inclined, to be more friendly.

For, I may love them, and quietly pray for them, and I will be cordial, courteous, kind, and yes, I would serve, if asked.  But, seldom, have I been asked.  But I am, in my own comfort zone, to serve here, in my writing etc.  So, I do not get involved, with others.  This is my outlet.  This is my ministry, in Christ.

Now, I need to say something, because I don’t want to hurt anybody who may read this, and I may have met them, at recent churches I have attended.  There have been places, where I was embraced by love.  By pastors, by the congregation.  But for whatever reason, a prompting from God, we left.  We left the church.  But it had nothing to do with the people, or doctrine, or even the past pains.  Things happen, peoples schedules change too.  Our schedules, have changed from time to time.

So, I guess, I am right now, I am a drifter for the Lord…..  I want to serve God, as an inspirational speaker, and in my writing.  But the truth of the matter, is, we have not found a church, where, I am comfortable, or where I serve.  Or where, I will get involved.  It did hurt that bad.

I do serve God, because I have to, in my own ministry, and in my writing, but I don’t hold back.  I have to, release truth.  Because when the Holy Spirit, gives me a word, I have to release it, and write it.  But, I am not paid for it, and I do this for free. I do not ask anybody for anything.  God meets my needs.  By my husband.  I do this, I write for the Lord, because the sacrifice of Christ was too great.  I have to release any word, God gives me.  And I will be obedient to God.  I know His voice.  It is always love.

Maybe someday, I will find a church home, and I will feel at home, and I will feel the love, and I will stay.  But right now, and it has been more then, ten years, since this happened, at least, but I will just wait on the Lord.  I choose to love,  and I pray, to be used by God.  But if they did, what they did to Jesus, it can happen.  Remember, the Pharisees, and their “religious” spirits.

Just be careful out there, and walk in love, love all, give people the  benefit of the doubt.  Pray, if you hear a bad report about somebody.  Maybe even talk to the person.  But don’t treat them like dirt.  Don’t reject them, and expect fruit.  Don’t listen to the devil.  Know, the devil is a liar, and He will always try to make someone look bad.  Especially, if they serve God.  To whom it may concern.  If you are in authority, or even if you just warm the pews.  Let the love of Christ, be your guide.

And as I conclude, I will say this, I knew this was going to happen, the Lord revealed something to me that day, as I was fired, and I knew, something was going to happen, that would stop, me, from being used, in a place, where I was saving souls.

I just know this, what the enemy intended for evil, God will turn for good, for my good, and for the good of others.  I will go on, to do what Christ has called me to do.  In a great and mighty way.  The gates, of hell will not prevail against me.  For my Lord, will build His church, in me, and others.

I just want to add, if you are looking for a church, look for a place, where love is.  Be careful with “cliquish” people.  Who really are in church, for social reasons only.  Go to a church, where the word of God is taught.  Look for a place, where all people go, and the Pastor encourages love.  Not just once in a while, but always….That he encourages, all types of people, to join, and to be united, by all races, ethnicities etc.  Look for love, and walk in love.

Like Christ taught us….

Just my thoughts, with love,

Elena Ramirez

Father, I really do not understand, why you want me to write this.  After all this time, but I know, your voice, and I know, I must obey.  Your reasons, are not always ours, though, I do, want to be in unity with you, in this.  Will it help heal me more?  I don’t know.  I thought, I had, by forgiving.  I do not want to bring any condemnation.  But there is always conviction.  If someone reads this, and they were a part of it, they will know.  But maybe their is a greater  reason, as you always do things in a great way.  Father, even here, I will say, I forgive.  I still feel the hurt, but I forgive, as tears just naturally flow from me.  No wonder though, sometimes, the church gets a bad rap, or because people, are afraid to serve, because the devil, does come to kill, steal, and destroy.  And your work.  And the work that others, are doing in your name.  Lord, religion does scare me.  Maybe someday, you will guide me to a home church, and I will feel the love.  Till then, I am happy, even just to write here, and to share a good word….from your Kingdom.  From your word.  Lord, thank you, for comforting me, in this time, for teaching me, so much.  Thank you for soothing my heart in this.  May it help others.  And Lord, stop others from doing this.  By the blood of Jesus.  I plead it around me, and your true worshippers, In Jesus name.  Amen

WHEREFORE BEHOLD I SEND UNTO YOU PROPHETS, AND WISE MEN, AND SCRIBES:  AND SOME OF THEM YE SHALL KILL AND CRUCIFY: AND SOME OF THEM SHALL YE SCOURGE IN YOUR SYNAGOGUES, AND PERSECUTE THEM FROM CITY TO CITY.  MATTHEW 23:34

IF WE JUDGE OURSELVES, WILL OTHERS JUDGE US?


The answer to that is, yes….for no matter what we do, others will observe our behavior, our fruit, our testimonies, etc.  And will look to see who we are.  We all do that, we check one another out.

Now we are also called not to judge one another, especially, out of love….

But I want to talk about judging ourselves.  Or rather, I know the Lord, wants us to judge ourselves.  For in doing so, we learn.  We change, we repent…and if you love God, you will want to do things His way.

Now, according to scripture, we know, we fall short of that, we know, that His ways, are not always our ways….but if you love God, you keep trying.  You keep trying to reach the goal of holiness.

As we mature, in Christ, we begin looking at our ways.  Thats the Holy Spirit, convicting you….and it is so important to want to grow.

If we are judged, yes, it does hurt, but if the righteous, judge us, and in love, we can receive instruction.  And there is so much to consider, because, if we are judged, and their is condemnation, it can make someone stumble.  So, I don’t encourage judging others, but I do encourage love.  And yes, judging ourselves.  And this is such a deep subject.  But if you are in a position, to bring criticism to someone, do it in love.  If not….well, It can make a Christian, leave the faith.  Or wound….and we have to careful.  This is something, we all have to work out.  Our love walk, and with others…So, as Christians we do need to be careful about that.

But, when judging ourselves, we have to be conscious, to abstain, from the appearance of evil.  You may think it is innocent.  But what is it?  Will it lead to something evil?  Say, you have a flirtatious personality.  What does that married man think?  You may not have those intentions, but the “appearance” of it, can cause others to judge you, or the devil himself, will speak to that man, and suggest you are interested….and again this is so deep, but what are we expressing?

We have to judge ourselves.  Especially, if we come in the name of the Lord.

For the devil, is the accuser of the brethern.  Revelation 12:10, and he will take your fruit, and if it does not withstand the truth, it will be condemned.

We may think, we are doing something unto the Lord, but if the fruit of it, would cause someone to stumble, that is not of God, but the devil.  We do not want to make someone stumble, nor do we want to be condemned with the world.  For Christ, will return, and we will be judged.

It does hurt, sometimes, when we are judged, criticized, or our works are brought to the light.  But thats why it is so important, to remain humble, and pliable, in the sight of God.  Turning away, from our pride, which comes from the devil, and being humble in his sight.  The Bible says, let the righteous smite me, it shall be a kindness….(Read Psalm 141:5)

Dear ones, that smarts, when we are judged.  It hurts, but we have to grow, we have to want to see, the error of our ways.  We need to know what Gods word says.  We need to let God correct us.  For whom God loves, he does correct.

Abstain, from the appearance of evil.  Let our works glorify God, in holiness.  Let our fruit, that will judged be that of love, chastity, humbleness, holiness, and all that is pure and good.

For others are watching, following behind, we will be accountable, to God, and for others.  Yes, we must judge ourselves, and look within, daily, seeking God, and seeking His truth, so we can be changed, more like Christ.

And remember, no matter what you may have done.  The love of Christ, brings, conviction, not condemnation.  Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is NOW no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.

If you find yourself condemning yourself.  Lighten up….go to God, and repent.  Change your ways…by the word of God.

And. if you find others condemning you, they are not your friends.  So, be careful who you seek guidance and counsel from.  Love, forgives, and love also, is honest.  Be honest with yourself, and judge yourself, so others will not judge you…

FOR IF WE WOULD JUDGE OURSELVES, WE SHOULD NOT BE JUDGED. BUT WHEN WE ARE JUDGED WE ARE CHASTENED OF THE LORD, THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE CONDEMNED WITH THE WORLD.  

I CORINTHIANS 11:31-32

Just my thoughts, with Love….

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I bless you, and come before you with a humble heart.  Lord, daily, I need to look at myself, and seek you, and judge myself, so I will not be judged.  So, I can avoid the wrath of you my Lord.  Lord, change me, give me a discerning heart, of love, so that if I do see wrong myself, I will speak it in love.  We so need to be careful, that we do not wound other Christians, who may not even know, they are doing something wrong.  We all sin, we all come short, of your glory….Lord, I just pray, that this will encourage us, to look within.  To want to grow, to want to change, to be more like you, we do have to judge ourselves.  We rebuke the accuser, the enemy, but in love, we know, your voice….In Jesus name.  Amen
