AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, I BEHELD satan AS LIGHTNING FALL FROM HEAVEN.  

Luke 10:18 King James

I want to settle once and for all, that Salvation can be lost.  Too many Christians, have such a strange understanding of this, that they don’t see the deception in this.

They don’t see, how precious Salvation is, and what Christ did on the cross for us.  They don’t see, we are to guard our salvation, and yes work it out with trembling and fear.  This is scriptural.  

But more then anything they don’t have fear of God, and because of that, they don’t treasure it, or respect it and guard it.  And because that fear of God is not there, they are not afraid of God, and they sin.  Simply put….

Many have such a confused sense, about grace and the law, that they actually believe, they have grace to sin, and will still make it to heaven, when they die.  

Don’t forget satan fell from grace.  

So they take one scripture from Galatians 3: and they misinterpret the words, and throw out the law.  According to Paul, the apostle, And think they are covered by grace.  They do not see the many, many other scriptures about the law, and the curses, that come from not keeping the law.  

Some, take truth, concerning the “justification” of Salvation, and do not see, that if there is unrepented sin, they are in spiritual jeopardy, and can lose their Salvation.  They believe….That once saved is always saved.  Its not.  And I will explain…

This is definitely the plan of the devil.  This is definitely, something he will use to try and confuse someone, and yes cause someone even to sin.

Last week was such a strange week for me, spiritually, but it lead me to this topic, even today.

It seemed, like every turn I took, people, were either offended with me, they wanted to challenge doctrine, they wanted me to compromise my beliefs, they wanted me to actually compromise my stance on only using the King James Bible and it was just a lot of spiritual warfare.

I stood firm, and said, I will only trust God.  I will not compromise truth.  I will not dismiss the law of God.  Think what you want I don’t care.  Maybe you saw my post where I talk about that.  But I held firm in the testing, and I believe I passed the test, to the glory of God.  

Because God showed me this…..

For it lead me even to a conversation, I had with my husband.  Who confided in me, he had a strange conversation with an acquaintance of his.  This acquaintance, was talking to my husband about salvation.  This person believes that once saved is always saved.  

He said, something really strange, that my husband asked me if there was any kind of scripture that says, Christ died for our sins, in the past, now, and in the future.  Which I asked, if he thought, maybe, he was trying to say, Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow?  

He said, no.  His meaning was that you can sin, now, or in the future and be covered by Salvation.

My husband knows better, praise God.  And he shared this analogy.  He asked this person.  If Hitler accepted Christ, before he became a dictator, and then committed all the atrocities that he did, killing Jews, killing innocent people, for the sake of his race, and then died…..

Would Hitler go to heaven?

The friend thought about it and said, “Yes he would go to heaven”.   WRONG!

My husband, was short on time, and could not share scripture, or more, with this person but he tried, in a brief moment to tell him, that was not right.  And that Hitler, would not have gone to heaven if he did not repent.  And asked for forgiveness.

So I shared this scripture with my husband.  To bring more understanding…

Please Note:  I am interjecting the words ” who is saved” to understand that the “righteous” is the saved.  This is who we are talking about in this scripture..  

And you always have to see scripture from a King James, to always get the true meaning.  This is why wording, must be guarded, and not compromised from other bible versions.  

WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE; IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT.   Ezekiel 33:13

If you know, that Christ died for you, and you have repented, and you believe Jesus Christ came to take away the sins of the world, and you accept Him as Lord and savior, you are promised eternal life.  Right?

Well, if you sin, according to this scripture, and commit iniquity, or sin the righteousness (who is saved) you had, (your name which is in the lambs book of life) will not be remembered.  It will be blotted out.  

And all the good things you did will not be remembered, and for your sins, that you commit, you will die for those sins.  In other words, the life you were promised by Christ, eternal life, by repenting, and seeking Him, will become now death for you.  You will lose your salvation, and life eternal is no longer promised to you, because you trusted your own righteousness, and sinned.  

So there it is there, Saved is not saved, if there is sin….

But lets talk about the devil.  Lets talk about who he was, and why it is so important, that you see this, and yes make the connection.  Because more then anything the enemy wants to deceive you.  He wants you to be confused.  He wants you to think you can sin, and your “justified.”  He wants you to lose your salvation, why?  Because he lost his.

Now remember this.  And I shared that top scripture, to make the illustration from Christ.  But we all know the story.

The devil, satan, who was also called lucifer, was an angel on high.  An Arc angel.  He was beautiful to look at.  He was, we are told, light.  He was highly ranked….He though, wanted to lift himself up, on high, and was actually jealous of God.  He wanted the glory for himself.  

God took authority, and kicked him out of heaven.

So think about it.  Here was an angel, who was established in heaven.  He had authority.  He had his place, in the Kingdom of heaven.  He had rank, he had a lot going for him.  He had his place in heaven.  But something came over him, where he wanted more power, more authority, and so what did he do?  He rebelled!  

Rebellion in the sight of God, is not good.  Because the devils pride, thought, he could attain the position of God, and rule.  He wanted to take over heaven.  Jealousy too, that was just as bad.  

So scriptures tell us there was war in heaven.  And a lot of the angels that took sides with satan were thrown out of heaven.    Think about that.   Satan and his pals, that were devils, were thrown out of heaven.  

Do you see the connection here?  He lost his salvation.  They lost their salvation too!  

Why?  Because he and the other angels sinned against God.  

He lost his place in heaven.  He lost all the blessings of heaven, and his future, when its all going to be said and done, his future will be hell.  

It is written….King James written….  

My friends.  Please think about this as well.  There are many people, we love, who do not accept Christ as Lord and savior.  They won’t even accept Him, to ensure their salvation.  They deny Him.  Then there are those, who sin, and are not afraid of compromising, truth.  But they believe they are saved and going to heaven.  

But when Christ returns.  And He will.  There will be a separation, just like in heaven.  The Bible describes it as tares and wheat, it also describes it, as sheep and goats.  They will be separated.  

Can you just for a moment, realize how sad it was in heaven, when the devil did that?  It was betrayal, at the highest level.  And so it should not be any surprise, that it will happen to us here on earth.  Like the Lords prayer….On earth as it is in heaven.  

It is said, that when this happens, many will say, “Lord, Lord, and He will say, I never knew you”.   Can you imagine how sad that would be if your loved one, made it to heaven, but you did not.  And Christ said.  I never knew you?  

Separation, will happen but we now should not have anything to do with those who compromise truth.  Who choose to sin.  Who choose to disobey God.  Compromising, is disobedience.  We should separate ourselves from those who want to sin.  It corrupts us as well.  

So there you have to see, here was an angel, who rebelled, who betrayed God, and scripture tells us, God does not trust anyone.  Not even the angels.  Can we blame Him?    

So what makes any of us think we can sin, and God will not document that sin, and let us slide by grace?  You know everything we do is recorded in the books.  

In the lambs book of life, and the book of life.  Two separate books.  One describes what you did on the earth.  And the other is to see if you accepted Christ as your Lord and savior.  You want your name in the lambs book of life, and you don’t want it blotted out.  With an eraser that is called sin.  

You have to look at this.  Why would the Lord pardon sin, without repentance, if the devil did not repent?  He did not repent.  He could have….but that pride caused him to be be kicked out of heaven.  

Remember he lost his salvation.  If you want to call it that.  It was just given to him as an angel.  Saved for us, is knowing how precious what Christ did for us.  Knowing, He is the way, the truth, and life.  It is a choice!  Its not just handed down to you, to abuse.  You have to accept Gods terms.  (the King James bible)  

This is not religion this is relationship with God almighty, a covenant, a sealed promise from the King of Kings that makes it relationship.  

What makes you think you won’t lose your Salvation if you don’t repent?  

Something to think about….

Just my thoughts, and praising God, and thanking Him, myself for my salvation.  Take care…Just a reminder.  Of the above scripture.  

PHILIPPIANS 2:12  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.  

What fear is that?  Friends it is the fear of God.  Get it, claim it, it will keep you out of trouble, out of sin, and it is the most healthiest thing you can do.  For the sake of your salvation.   And if you have not accepted Christ, I implore you, make it right with Him.  Confess your sins, pray the sinners prayer, and get a good King James bible.  

He is the only one who can change our lives.  On earth, and when we die, if He is our Lord, we are promised eternity.  Don’t throw this chance away.   

Live for God.  Live for the one who gives you life, and life abundantly, because of His sacrifice for your sins on the cross.  Live for Him.  It is the sweetest sense of love.  Live….

 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

I HAVE FAITH I CAN HAVE MIRACLES ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

Miracles can happen.  But it requires faith.  I know some secret principles, to how to have faith, that just may help you get your miracles.

The first time, I remember God answering a prayer, was when I said a prayer, and it was raining. But the sun was shining. Well I am saying a prayer now, as it snows, and the sun is shining. Miracles can happen. But it requires faith. I know some secret principles, to how to have faith, that just may help you get your miracles. Order my book today. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

I woke up different today.  I woke up, with a new hope, for miracles.  I thought to myself, I wrote a book about “HOW TO HAVE FAITH MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.”

To be honest, I have to give glory to God in this, because He spoke it to my heart.

So I have faith, but whats next?

Miracles!

They can happen!  Oh I know, that I know the key is in my faith.  To having miracles.  I know that I know, miracles, are not just an illusion, of some sort.  No they are real.  Its my inspiration, to get me on another road….maybe for you too.  As we walk through life.  We need inspiration to know, it can happen!

Miracles, happen every day!  Sometimes, we don’t hear of them, and sometimes, we just take them for granted.  But they are meant to give glory to God.

That’s my goal in life that I know, that I know it.  I am meant to give glory to God.  Things are not always easy for me.  But that is in my heart, to give God glory, and that makes it easy.  For miracles….

You see, knowing who I am, from my conception, I am a miracle!  I was not supposed to be born. Long story short, my mother took measures to not have any children.  Not just precautions, she had an operation!  But my dad prayed for me. And I was conceived, and born.  The doctors were in shock! So I am here, and thats a miracle.  God made that easy….

Miracles, can happen.  And this is what I want you to see.  Knowing, sometimes, we can get in a funk, and get depressed, get distracted, to think this is it, it cannot change!  But it can!

Oh dear friends, I know, what it is like to get like that.  I know what its like to feel trapped, and think, it will never be different.  Whatever it is.  Sometimes, we get a report, that seems so final.  Something from a doctor, or even our own negative thinking. So we limit ourselves, by what reality is.  NO!  We have to change that kind of “stinking thinking.”

We have to see if we believe, in Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior, that He told us, we would do great things…..He is our savior!  And as our savior, He taught us, and showed us miracles!  Think of all the miracles He did!  The Bible says, He did so many, that they are not even numbered, or recorded!

All I know right now, more then ever!  I am holding onto the hope of miracles.  I am holding onto the dear Lord.  I am holding onto His promises!  God does not lie.  Man does, people do!  That is why, I am so adamant to have a pure holy word, to claim, as that promise, from the King James Bible.

I want my miracles in tact!  I don’t want anything blocking that miracle.  And if it means I use a pure holy word, that is anointed, that may even sound archaic in sound.  I am using it!  I love my King James Bible. I don’t want anything to change my miracle, that I can have.  I know the scriptures and I know, that if I don’t know something in the scriptures, the Holy Spirit can reveal it to me.  Interpret it for me.  I don’t know how many times, I just opened my Holy Bible, God spoke to me.  But I had my part.  I remember when He showed me discrepancies from other Bibles, and I saw, how the devil lies!

Wow!  You know, I am just going to keep this short and sweet for now.  But I want to close with this thought!  Rewire your heart, your mind, you thoughts, by believing in miracles!  Like a computer you can be reprogrammed.

Miracles can happen!  I have Faith, I wrote my book about Faith….knowing, I had it.  But you know, God leads us, step by step.  And He led me to today, to say…..

Miracles can happen! I am focusing on that.  If your interested in getting my book, to find maybe even one thing, in there that will activate your miracles, please check out this link.

http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com and order my book.

Be encouraged my friends!  Be encouraged and don’t give up hope.  No matter what you have done, and you think you have blown it, or missed a chance.  God can turn it around.  God can make a way, where there was no way!  HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE!  John 14:6.

All we have to do is come to our Lord!  Humble ourselves, repent….Ask for wisdom, ask for guidance.  Ask Him for that miracle!  Tell Him, you know He can do it.  Tell Him you align yourself to His truth, and denounce the enemy, in any part of your life!  Submit to God! Resist that devil, and he will flee.

God will give it to you, to show you that miracle!  Or to prove Himself Mighty!  He is almighty God, and I praise Him!  Glory to His holy name!

Don’t let the world, or the devil, or the reality of something tell you it cannot change.  It can!  Have faith!  Have hope….Stir yourself up.  Get in your King James Bible read His promises!  Claim them!  Get my book.  Give hope to someone else, let it be an epidemic.

What you do for others, can be returned to you.  Tell someone, miracles can happen.  Tell them you have faith for them.  Tell them, love.  Love never fails!

It is a principle….there are many secret principles.  And love is one of them…I know a few of them.  And I know, with new hope today….that I have hope I can have miracles!  So can you!

The following scriptures, are the first recorded mention of “miracles” that I want you to see.  From my concordance.  But in giving glory to God, I want you to see His heart, and what He said about it, and what offended Him.  These kind of things can stop our miracles.  For it is sin, it is iniquity in His eyes.  Let us strive to please our Lord, for miracles.  Be blessed, as you read these scriptures.  I pray for the body of Christ to see  their miracles.  To give God glory…..

Numbers 14:18-24

The Lord is long suffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and four generation.  Pardon I beseech Thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of Thy mercy, and as Thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.  And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:  But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.  Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice; Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it.  But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed Me fully, him will I bring into this land whereinto he went and his seed shall possess it.

Friends, as I close, hearken to the voice of our Lord.  Pray your spirit, is right before Him. Follow Him completely.  He is the way…Yes and always give Him glory!

Love you all in Christ, Just my thoughts today,

 Elena Ramirez  

LOYALTY TO GOD AND OTHERS PROVES LOVE


In considering the greatest commandment Jesus gave us,in Matthew 22:37-39, we are to Love God with all our hearts, soul, and mind, and to love one another, I contemplate, what would it take first and foremost, to show that?

And what came to me, is loyalty. Loyalty to God, and to others, is a characteristic hard to find. I suppose, it does need to be developed. To be aware of it. To please God.

I always, wonder, how God felt, when Adam, and Eve, talked to the snake in the garden, and instead of going to God, to find out if the devil, was lying, they believed the devil, and were deceived. We all reaped, the curse of that sin. What would have been different, if they had been loyal to God, then, and asked him? Our world would be different, there would be no curse. Adam, and Eve would have shown their loyalty to God.

Honoring someone, with your friendship, and loyalty, is a great gift, one, that I always look for myself, in a person. But it is only shown, when tested, to be proven.

To develop our loyalty, I am sure God does test us. To see how we will react, or what we will do, in certain situations. Testing the spirit, to see, if we will come out as gold. Refined, by his hand.

He sees, and knows everything…It kind of makes you want to look and see within, to see what you are displaying to him. Testing yourself….

As true sons, and daughters of the King of Kings, we are a royal priesthood, and loyalty, to our Lord, should be evident in our character, and in our love to one another.

Christ, was loyal to God, for us, he went to the cross, and gave of his life. So, the curse would be broken, and so that we can have life abundantly.

Worshiping, God in spirit, and in truth, as the scripture says, God is looking for this. Those, who will worship him, in spirit, and in truth. Today, what can I do, to show my loyalty to God? In loving others, and in loving him, with all my heart, soul, and mind?

Feel free to share, if this blesses you, it may bless someone else, in love….

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

Father, just a simple prayer of Hope, and honor to you.  I ask to bless you.  I ask, for a loyal heart, to bless you, and that you would see that in me.  To you, and to my true friends, I will be loyal.  Help me, correct me, if I am off balance in this.  For your glory, in Jesus name.  Amen

COMMAND YOUR SOUL~DISCIPLINE YOURSELF!


Sometimes, you hear a prophetic word, and you know it is from God.  It resonates deep within your spirit, and you know, that you know it is truth.  It may trigger, an understanding, or it may also trigger, an action to be taken.

This Easter Sunday, as I prepared to go to church, I heard, such a prophetic, and anointed word.  I  was watching a Christian church service early Sunday morning.  The worship team that they have, each Sunday, is always different, but always, inspiring.  As I listened to the worship team, and I also worshipped, I joined in.  But something felt off in my spirit, something, was missing. Maybe I was tired, I don’t know, we did go to bed fairly late.  Yet, I know I was off beat.

Then the pastor came to the podium, and began speaking to his congregation.  And he said something, that I know was an anointed word.  He  really said so much, but as I prepared for my church service, he said two things, that really stuck out, and moved me.  And in which order, he said, them I cannot recall….Yet for that day, and today, I have felt it in my spirit.

He said….Bless the Lord, Oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.  Psalm 103:1.  Then the pastor said, “I Command my soul.”

And boom, I knew that it was an anointed word!  A word meant for me, but also for you, for me to share, from a man of God.  But more then anything, from the Throne, of Almighty God.  He just spoke it, but in the order it was sent, it was received.

So, I share it with you.  It brought so much to me.  After that, we had to go, to church, so, I did not hear all of the pastors message, but those few words, brought something to me.  Anointed, it spoke to my heart, as if Christ had spoke to me.  And hopefully, I can share it with you, for your own understanding.  As well….

I command my soul.  I can still hear it…It told me right then, right there, from the throne of God, that God was sensing and seeing my spirit, to want to get it right, but it was not right.  And I did not know what to do.  I was being moved by my feelings.

And I knew it, and God knew it.  That word, told me, that I had to take authority over my own soul.  I had to command my soul.  So I did.  And right then, right there, I realized, how prophetic, how anointed that word was.

You see, I was just kind of going with the flow of what I felt.  It wasn’t really the best I could offer God.  Maybe in my eyes it wasn’t even bad.  But I was being swayed, by my own feelings.  And here it was Easter Sunday, and there should have been more to me, in my spirit, giving praise and honor, to God, to my Lord, Jesus for his sacrifice, and it was not there.  I had to see I had to take control, I had to command my soul, to be right, pleasing God.  Yes, in spirit, and in truth.  What does God see?  Scripture tells us, he does see.  Matthew 15:8  This people draweth near unto Me, with their mouth, and honoreth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

When we are distracted, or cold, in our walk with God, in our faith, and we just go through the motions, he does not like that either.  He sees.  So what can we do about it? We are to submit to God, and resist the devil, because he is the one who wants us to get cold, and indifferent, and we know, by Gods word, he will flee.  We are to draw near to God and He will draw near to us.  He tells us, cleanse your hands, ye sinners, and purify your hearts, ye double minded.  James 4:7-8.  We command our souls, by the word of God.  By the blood of Jesus, and we get in line with Gods word, and align, ourselves to be right with God.  It is a choice!

And it made me see, there are so many of us, where we can get cold, we can get out of tune, from the spirit, and we go by what we feel.  And so, undisciplined, we are out of the spirit.  The Bible tells us those that worship him, worship him, in spirit, and in truth.  I was trying to worship, as I mentioned above.  But something was off.  It was not in truth, I was just going through the motions.  And I have heard the saying, “Fake it till you make it.”  But thats not me, and thats phony to me.  I needed something to make me aware of who God is, and he sent that word, but in that word, as a gift, it ministered to me.  I command my soul.  Something changed that moment, I was in a place, where my worship, was accepted by God!

You see, God has given us a free will.  God has set up this life we live, as a mystery to us. So that we have to seek him.  He tests us, he sees us, and loves us, and yes, corrects us when we are wrong.  And in this discipline, that he sometimes gives us, we learn, to train ourselves.  Like soldiers, in an army, we learn from our mistakes, we learn from trial and error, but there are things, that we should know, about ourselves, and who God is.

I have learned, that God, sent his word, healed us, and delivered us from destruction. So, when I apply the word, when I take his word, I begin to see, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.  Phillipians 4:13.

I am not a puppet, but a person, who has a free will, but I have the spirit, of the living God within me.  I am the temple of the living God.  Because I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior.  But, because God gives us a free will, I can see, that I do not have to be tossed to and fro, with every piece of doctrine, or any mood, or feeling.

Because as my own person, in Christ, I can take authority, over my thoughts, my feelings, my moods, and emotions.  I heard….I command my soul.  And I knew right there, I had to take authority, and command my own soul.  No one else can do it, no one but me.

Do you hear what I am saying?   Because this is an anointed word.  So many people, do not know who they are in Christ.  And they are tossed to and fro.  Or they totally withdraw from life, and submit to fears, or indifference, or unbelief.  And so they are not fulfilled.  They become separated from God, in discord, or even sedition or rebellion.  God did not want that for us.  He gave us his word.  He gave us truth, so we can take that truth, from his Holy word, and apply it to our needs.  We change, from babies, to children, to becoming people of God, who are seasoned, and stronger, because of the word of God.

The Bible talks about the voice we hear….and that of a stranger, we will not follow. John 10:5 talks about this.  I recommend, that you read the whole chapter on his voice.  But, when we hear those words, in our spirit, and they are negative, and they say you cannot do this or that.  That is not of God.  When you hear a voice, and it tells you to hate, or to do something bad, or evil.  That is not of God.  That is an evil, and rebellious spirit.

But, when you hear in your spirit, something, though, that is based on the word of God, and it encourages you in love, and instructs you, that is God.  But because you have the ability, to take command, of your own spirit, with the spirit of God, you should be able, to know, and hear, the voice of God, to take control, to say….I Command my soul.  And take it to the obedience of Christ.  For whatever it may be.

You need to know who you are in Christ, and take the authority, by the word of God.  The blood of Jesus, was shed on the cross, for you, to take this authority.  Christ suffered, and died, so that you and I could break the curse off of our souls, by the blood he shed.  When we take authority, and command our souls, to the principles, and to the authority God has given us, we begin to see our full potential.

His suffering was a gift to us.  Many Christians, have accepted Christ as Lord, and savior.  But its like getting a gift, and not opening it.  You have to tap into the power of God, and his word, by faith, but then you need to apply it.  For results.  If you do not open your Bible, or you do not know, Gods principles, you will always be fearful.  You will always be at a loss, when you could be doing so much more in Christ, and with Christ.

But you have to make up your mind.  You have a choice, you can either stay, in that cold, and indifferent, place of your life.  Or you can discipline yourself, by the word of God, and command your soul.  Its a choice.

Heres a clue for you, an indicator…. When you really love God, you do begin taking your eyes of yourself, and you begin seeing him.  In my last post, “The Passion of Christ Compels Me,” ( check it out) I wrote that, in this walk with Christ, I know who my Lord is.  My faith, has grown so much, that I know more who Christ is, more so, then I know who I am, myself.  Because I know who he is by his word, by his miracles, by his love, and compassion.  I don’t always know that about myself, or what I am capable of.  But God knows, and God wants me and you to learn, who we can be in him.

But you have to get out of that comfort zone, you have to want to explore who you are in Christ.  Command your soul.  Take authority, be the person, you should be in Christ.  This is not a fad, or some new age, baloney.  This is being the best you can be through Christ, but knowing through him you  have that authority.

Don’t let the devil steal your peace of mind, or even an opportunity to bless God and yourself, and others, because you are insecure, or unsure.  Trust who you are in Christ.  Command your soul, in Jesus, to be the best that you can be.

Yes, this was an anointed word, that I heard, I took, and I share, because so many of us, do not know who we are in Christ.  We do not know, when we are in those valleys, of the shadow of death, that we can take control, in Christ, and command our souls, to believe.

After all its our choice.  Why should we not make the choice, to be the best we can be by Jesus Christ.  God created life, and he created us, in his image.  We need to learn who God is, so we can learn who we really can be.  But you have to command your soul, to learn, to be disciplined, to be strengthened in the inner person.  To have the mind of Christ requires, his word.  To be renewed in your mind.  And your choice, to command your soul.

Our words, our actions are only going to produce fruit, when we actually do something.  Not being passive, in our walk with God, or our relationship, but knowing, the word taking the word, and commanding our soul, and blessings to come forth, by pleading the blood of Jesus.  Sometimes, we have to reaffirm, by our words, by speaking Gods truth, so we can grow stronger, grow in obedience, and sacrifice.  But if we grow cold, we can become indifferent.  Thats why this word is so important.  We have to command our souls……

Even when we do not know what to do.  By praying, by the word, and by speaking life, to our situations, we are commanding our souls, to be aligned, with God, and his word. Taking authority, requires action.  Command your soul.

Just my thoughts, with love,  Elena Ramirez

Proverbs 25:28 

HE THAT HATH NO RULE OVER HIS OWN SPIRIT IS LIKE A CITY THAT IS BROKEN DOWN AND WITHOUT WALLS.

p.s. Once you know this, you should never  be able to say….The devil made me do it!  Know who you are in Christ!  Get the mind of Christ!

A Prayer of Honor…

Father, God, thank you for bringing this word to my attention.  Lord, there is always a balance, to who we can be in Christ.  And Lord, we must be sensitive to your promptings by the holy spirit.  That is why, when I heard this pastor speak that word, I knew my heart, right at that moment, had to be aligned with your word, your truth.  Lord, thank you for this word to help us, to remind us, yes you do give us a free spirit.  You are a gentleman, you do not enforce anything on us.  But we must train ourselves, discipline ourselves by the Holy spirit, by your promptings, to do things, according to your word, and to please you, should be our goal.  As soldiers of the word, we must discipline ourselves.  And yes, command our souls, to obey you, to do your will.  Thank you Father, for this word.  In Jesus name.  Amen

DO YOU HAVE PEACE IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING? ~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


PEACE, I LEAVE WITH YOU; MY PEACE,  I GIVE TO YOU.  I DO NOT GIVE YOU AS THE WORLD GIVES.  DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED AND DO NOT BE AFRAID.   JOHN 14:25

Peace, is a beautiful thing to have.  You feel comfort, joy, new feelings of hope, can come into view.  There is an expectation, that good things can happen, when you have peace.  Even when skies are gray, one can have peace.  A quiet and serene spirit, of just rest and trust.

But when you have no peace, there is trepidation, fear, an uneasiness.  You can feel it in the gut of your stomach, and you are not comfortable.  In fact, you are weary, and leery of things and people, the world.

Here Christ, tells us, to look to him, for he gives peace.  To not let your heart be troubled.  Dear one, if you are doing something, that you should not be doing.  You will not have peace.  The word of God says…there is no peace to the wicked.  And it is hard, for any one to sometimes, think they are wicked.  But if we have not accepted Christ, repented, turned from our evil ways….which we think can be right.  That is wicked in the sight of God.  Sometimes, a lack of peace, is also a WARNING SIGN, to pray, to seek God, about any given situation.  Go to his throne.  Go to that quiet place with him, and let him counsel you, and guide you to make the right decision.  So you will have peace, in what you are doing.

Don’t be afraid!

You don’t have to carry this burden, or whatever is trying to steal your peace. God will help you…..I know, he always helps me.  Today, may be your day, to find peace.  Seek God.  He is waiting for you….and you will find him.

If you do not know Christ, now is the time.  Below is a link, pray the prayer of Salvation, and ponder on God.  He will give you peace…..Also time to read the Bible.  He always has an answer there…..Always!!

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I praise you, and seek you.  I thank you for the wisdom you have given me, to understand myself sometimes.  To understand your ways, and to make me aware, when I have no peace, that I may be doing something, that is not right in your sight.  Lord, humble, I ask for forgiveness, when I try to do something, and your will is not in it.  I will not have peace.  Lord, teach me your ways, teach me, how to be at peace even with you.  I give you my cares, my needs, and I don’t want to look at anything but you.  I do ask for the peace of Christ…For the world, and people will let one down.  But you promise you will not.  Thank you, Father, in Jesus name.  Amen


In Christ, Just my Thoughts…..

A PRAYER FOR US FROM JESUS~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


RIGHTEOUS FATHER,  THOUGH THE WORLD DOES NOT KNOW YOU, I KNOW YOU, AND THEY KNOW YOU HAVE SENT ME.  I HAVE MADE YOU KNOWN TO THEM, AND WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE YOU KNOWN IN ORDER THAT THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR ME MAY BE IN THEM AND THAT I MYSELF MAY BE IN THEM.  JOHN 17:25

I love prayer, and I love how Jesus expresses himself to the Father, God Almighty.  Just seeing this, reminds me again, how we need to be examples of Christ.  In a world, that does not embrace God or keep his commandments, we are inundated, in the news, and in just every day events, the evil, that exists.

But we can be the difference.  We can be a light that shines for Christ.  How I long, for a change, in my own life, and in those that I love.  And those, that Christ has commanded us to love.  We are called to love, in his name.  We can be the difference, to others.  But we have to begin with ourselves.  And turning from those things, that keeps Christ’s spirit away.

We have to want to change, and turn from sin, and seek God for strength, and wisdom, and his peace.  We must, attempt to love, and be kind, considerate, compassionate.  More than anything, I pray, this prayer of our Lord, would remind us of his love.  That he loves us, and as we love him, his love is within us, and this will please God.

My Prayer of Hope….

Father, I praise you, and thank you for the example of Christ, to teach us to pray, to be mindful, that those things that we do, we do because, we live, move, and have our being in you.  That you give life, and life abundantly.  Lord, let Love be our motivation, because of Christ, and his sacrifice, and your Love, Father.  For you loved us so much, you did send your son, for us, that we might have life abundantly, if we live in Christ.  Lord, help us to be examples as well, to bring love to a world that does not know you.  May it be reflected, in every action, every attempt, every communication, every thing, that we put our hands to, everything, so it can show, we are yours…..And that we know you, in this great love, of yours.  In Jesus name,  Amen

CALL UNTO ME~A PRAYER OF HOPE


Dear friends,

Prepare your heart.  Take a moment, and ponder on God.  On the wonder of him.  Let this scripture, soften your heart.  Let it remind you, all you need to do is call on God….He will answer you.  He knows your prayer need, and is able to answer it.  Remember all things are possible with him.  Thank him…..

CALL UNTO ME, AND I WILL ANSWER THEE, AND SHOW THEE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS WHICH THOU KNOWEST NOT.  JEREMIAH 33:3

Father, I just sense this is divine appointment, to “call” upon you.  That there is an anointing here in your word.  As, a reminder to seek you, to call on you.  To keep communication open with you.  To bring our cares, our hopes, our dreams to you.  To repent, when needed.  To cleanse ourselves,  from the “gunk” in the world.  Just to rest at your feet, as I seek your counsel.  To be in your presence, to feel your love.  Yes I call on you for that reason, in itself.  Lord, how I long to see your power, and majesty work on my behalf, and that of my loved ones.  Lord, I know it is in the key of seeking your word, renewing my mind with your truth, and being obedient, and yes being someone who reflects love.  And it is love, because of your example.  All efforts, seem to be nothing, if the love is not there.  Lord, I do call on you even now, and I trust you.  Lord, to the heart who has taken time to reflect on you, even here, show them great and mighty things.  Things, that they in their wildest dreams, could not even imagine.  I ask that for myself, as your heart servant.  Who longs to be a reflection of Christ.  I call on you my Lord, even in this Prayer of Hope. And I thank you, Father, Lord.   In Jesus name, Amen
