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


Version 2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Peter 5:2 KJV.

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

It turned me off. 

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

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

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

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

Ecclesiastes 10:19  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Timothy 6:10  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

REPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3395.jpgREPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY……By Elena Ramirez

I truly believe, that REPENTANCE is one of the greatest gifts God gives us. A tool, to not neglect. It is the greatest weapon against the enemy. It cleans the slate. It makes us humble. It stops the penalty of sin, that the enemy uses against us, to have a legal right to attack us.

And its all because of what Christ did on the cross for us. Don’t forget about this gift. Don’t neglect what Christ did on the cross, and yes, even after you accepted Christ as Lord and savior.

Repentance, will ensure your Salvation. I believe in it daily. Like an apple a day, keeps the doctor away. Repentance, will keep your Salvation in tact. We all sin, folks, we all come short of the glory of God. Thats King James scriptural.

The blood of Jesus, will not cover you, if you sin. You will have to start all over. Sin, will separate you from God. So repent.

The enemy always looks for a way to deceive us. But again, the fear of God will bring us to repent. To stay right in the sight of Christ.

Please remember Repentance, when you pray:

NOW I REJOICE, NOT THAT YE WERE MADE SORRY, BUT THAT YE SORROWED TO REPENTANCE: FOR YE WERE MADE SORRY AFTER A GODLY MANNER, THAT YE MIGHT RECEIVE DAMAGE BY US IN NOTHING.

FOR GODLY SORROW WORKETH REPENTANCE TO SALVATION, NOT TO BE REPENTED OF: BUT THE SORROW OF THE WORLD WORKETH DEATH.

FOR BEHOLD THIS SELFSAME THING, THAT YE SORROWED AFTER A GODLY SORT, WHAT CAREFULNESS IT WROUGHT IN YOU, YEA, WHAT CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, YEA, WHAT INDIGNATION, YEA, WHAT FEAR, YEA, WHAT VEHEMENT DESIRE, YEA, WHAT ZEAL, YEA, WHAT REVENGE! IN ALL THINGS YE HAVE APPROVED YOURSELVES TO BE CLEAR IN THIS MATTER.

II CORINTHIANS 7:9-11 KJV.

Blessings, and love,

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


IMG_1605.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

FREEDOM OF SPEECH ~ DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2523.jpgFREEDOM OF SPEECH DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Elena Ramirez

I am grateful to God for our freedoms, here, in the United States.  Many are using that right, even now with our new President.  Donald J. Trump. To protest, and express how they feel.  But they cross a line, when they riot.  

I do not agree with many of these views.  Because they are not my core values, but I do respect freedom of speech.  But what I see, is many hide behind their computer, or even publicly say, and do things with freedom of speech that makes me cringe.  They abuse it. 

So lately, I don’t know, I have been seeing a lot of abuse. By many. And I guess it even concerns me, when I see a brother or a sister, in Christ abuse it.

People, I love.

Look, God gives us each a conscience. But maybe you will just consider what I am about to say as love. Maybe a guideline to help you.

But let me ask you a few questions…
Is what your sharing, is it truth?
Is it a lie?
Is it love?
Or is it hate?
Is it mean spirited?
Is it something, that will bring understanding?
Is it something, that is not a bad example for others to learn from? Hmmm.
Is it something that respects?
Is it something that disrespects?
Does it bring unity to us as Americans, and yes even people of other races, creeds, religions etc.

Or does it set out to cause division?

Are you promoting life? Or are you promoting something that hurts life? And takes it away…..

Is your agenda, Gods agenda?

All of these things are just things we can miss. I know, I probably do. And for that I repent to God. We need to find the balance. I am not your conscience. You are. I know, myself, I have erred….

But I also know…..

If God is your savior, you know, He knows your thoughts…..

But there are things, I just shake my head at, because its as if the person, is not really thinking…..

For, when I see a brother or a sister, playing with someones emotions. And they put out something, that may make ME sympathize with them, and even bring out outrage, or anger, because they were hurt, or insulted, and then THEY say;

“Hey I was just playing with you” I was pulling your leg.

I look at that as very immature.

Its a spirit, you are releasing that is a lie, and then you call it a joke. It harms your spirit, because you are practicing lying….

You have to look at the fruit of it, and what it gives, and what it does for you. And yes even others.

I don’t trust lies, or liars, and when I see someone who I trusted use that kind of illustration, to make me think different. Or to play with my emotions. I do, no longer, trust the integrity of that person.

Its like the analogy of the little boy, who cried wolf. Making people believe him, but when they saw the lie, they stopped believing him. But the sad thing happened, the wolf really did appear. No one believed him, when he truly spoke the truth….

Look, I want to be very general about this. But lets remember.

Freedom of speech is a gift. Its something we need to honor, and protect. It should not be used, to incite, evil, or violence, or anything that goes against what Christ taught us in love. The report, should bring light, not darkness, to ourselves or others.

Yes, and truth does not always means it won’t hurt. It will…

But, use love if your going to bring truth to it. Look, I am a warrior, but even God teaches warriors to be diplomatic.

I take to God what my KJV Says, and I don’t want to just pick and choose, for my purposes.

Just food for thought, this morning. Freedom of speech…do you use it, or abuse it?

FINALLY BRETHREN, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE HONEST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE THINK ON THESE THINGS…..THESE THINGS WHICH YE HAVE BOTH LEARNED AND RECEIVED, AND HEARD, AND SEEN IN ME DO: AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BE WITH YOU. PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9. KJV.

I just realize if we are going to use our voices, we really need to stop, and think, and be responsible.  

Accountable to God and others.  In love… I never want to abuse this gift.  

Blessings in Christ, Elena Ramirez 

WHAT FRUIT ARE YOU EATING SPIRITUALLY? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_69e.jpegBe careful friends, what spiritual fruit you eat.

Nothing has changed, since the beginning of time.  Sin is sin, and it began with an apple.  An apple God commanded Adam and Eve, not to eat.  That apple is very symbolic, to life now, and we can eat fruit that is sin, and not even know it.  

When was the last time you heard a message, on what fruit to eat?   I think we as Christians, and even the world, are so desensitized by sin, that we can accept it.  And its wrong.  Its wrong in the sight of God, and it is wrong for us.  

I can’t take credit for this thought, it is a God thought.  God brought it to me.  He showed me a crate full of fruit.  He showed me the fruit was “deviant” and I knew, and know, that what we eat spiritually, can be manifested in us spiritually.  

Deviant ~  That word means:  To turn aside from a course, standard, principle, or a topic.  

God had a course in mind for us.  God has not changed His thinking about sin.  He will punish it, and He hates it.  He knows how it separates us from Him.  He knows, how it corrupts us.  He knows that if we sin, we lose our sense of right and wrong.  We lose our way.  Christ is that way, but if we lose Christ, we lose our Salvation, because of sin.

Many think once saved, always saved.  But if sin is in the picture.  No, you are not saved.  And I am not going to argue about it.  You are then called a backslider.  Look it up.  Because many do tend to put up a debate when I write this.  But I know, the only way, we can be redeemed is by repentance, and by asking for Gods forgiveness.  By the blood of Jesus.  So when you think about what Christ did for you, you do not want to abuse His sacrifice, by sinning.  

Remember Adam and Eve.  Remember, that Eve, just ate the fruit.  As she listened to the doubting, the devil brought to her.  Remember that Adam ate it too.  Remember, if they had just gone to God, and asked Him again, she would have not ate that fruit, that brought the curse, really to all of us.  Because God who does not lie, would have told them the truth.  Nothing has changed.  

We still have the chance to go to God, go to our King James bibles, and read His truth.  And yes, I will address which Bible you should eat from.  

A King James Bible.  Why?  Because the others have been corrupted.  They have been changed.  They disregarded the many scriptures that warn not to change, add, or delete Gods holy word.  They aren’t holy the fruit you eat, is half, truth, half lie. Where is the cleansing in that? Where is the holiness and anointing in rotten fruit.  Liken it to fruit on steroids.  Its chemically changed, and not healthy for you.  

Remember, that God has His reasons for not wanting us to eat fruit that is sin.  That tree, of good and evil.  God did not want us to know what evil is.  He has His reasons, even now for protecting us.  

What are you eating?  What are you filling your mind, and heart with?  Oh friends, I have to ask that myself.  You see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  We all do.   Maybe, I am close to something God is warning me about.  But I will heed it, and I will take it to heart.  

You see, you don’t know me, and you don’t know what I have missed.  But I know, at this point of my life.  I missed my calling, at a young age.  I did.  Because of sin. And I know, I am older, and I know God could restore me.  But, He cannot change the course, if I don’t change it.  By being obedient.  

This journey of life, we are all on, can change, if we only take to heart.  What fruit are we eating?  I want what God says to eat.  Its as simple as that.  The fruit of the Spirit.

BUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT, IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, TEMPERANCE, AGAINST SUCH THERE IS NO LAW.  AND THEY THAT ARE CHRISTS HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH WITH THE AFFECTIONS AND LUSTS.  IF WE LIVE IN THE SPIRIT, LET US ALSO WALK IN THE SPIRIT.  LET US NOT BE DESIROUS OF VAIN GLORY, PROVOKING ONE ANOTHER, ENVYING ONE ANOTHER.  GALATAINS 5:22-26 KJV.

If you want good fruit, you have to start from the seed. For it will affect the roots. Repentance clears the slate, what are you going to plant in your mind and heart, and soul, so your roots will be roots of righteousness?

Please take this to heart. To mind, and to know, we reap what we sow. Remember Christ, remember His example always. And study, and pray, to know, what pleases God. For your eternal destination depends on what you eat. Spiritually.

Do you want peace in your own life?  Do you want to receive it.  Well remember, there is no peace to the wicked.  Wickedness comes from sin.  This is also scriptural.  Please look it up.  If you want peace….Remember this scripture.  Look it up from a KJV bible for it is pure.  Go for that…..

BUT THE WISDOM THAT IS FROM ABOVE IS FIRST PURE, THEN PEACEABLE, GENTLE, AND EASY TO BE ENTREATED, FULL OF MERCY AND GOOD FRUITS, WITHOUT PARTIALITY AND WITHOUT HYPOCRISY. AND THE FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS SOWN IN PEACE OF THEM THAT MAKE PEACE.  JAMES 3:18.  KJV.

Change the fruit you eat, to the fruit of the spirit, and you will see the difference.  Get your fruit from God, not man, not corrupted fruit.  Holy fruit. Advice for you and me.  

Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

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 DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


To some, I am harsh, I am hardlined, I am not flexible.

Well…I won’t compromise Gods truth, His holy word.

I know what compromise has done in the past, and I walked a path, that was not the way of Christ, the truth.

I am to some narrow minded. But that is a compliment to me. You see the path the way, is a narrow way. Its not found in the ways of the world.

BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT. MATTHEW 7:14.

My salvation is not in just having a thought that grace will carry me alone, and that would give me permission to sin. How shabby, how insulting that is to what Christ did on that cross for all of us.

No, I won’t treat my salvation, like its no big deal. I work it out with fear and trembling. I don’t trust anybody but what God says, truth of the matter. Because the Holy Spirit is my teacher.

And when I am wrong, I repent. And believe me, I have been wrong. But I am not wrong, when I say I have fear of God. Because God does not let me get away with anything. Not at all.  And I am grateful for that.  That I heed His correction, that I know what the consequences of sin is.  And that scares me.  So no I am grateful for His promptings, His correction.  His love.  

I am a nice person. But even nice people can get to the point that they don’t care. And I don’t, there is something free about that. 

None of you know my life, what I have gone through, none of you know what God has taught me. But I will not let go of that old rugged cross, and I will with all my being, try, yes at least try to give Him glory, and obedience.  

But it all begins even by the bible I use. I use a King James bible.  For holiness, and truth.  And the anointing.  That has not been corrupted by mans hands.

I don’t want to be a flaky Christian, with no true substance. I know, how valuable my salvation is in Christ.

So, I don’t care, what people think. They don’t live my life, and they don’t live my pain, or my sorrow, or what I have gone through. So think what you want. I don’t care.

My hope is in Christ, and Christ alone. Christ is going to return. My goodness, do we not see prophecy being shown in front of our eyes?

Are we still going to play church? Play religion, mans rules, traditions, and regulations, that think its right.

We better think again, all of us, if we really want to make it to Gods Kingdom.  We better think what does God think?  Oh don’t mistake His silence, for nothing.  He is not mocked, and we reap what we sow.  

So what people think about me at this point, does not matter.

LOOKING FOR THAT BLESSED HOPE, AND THE GLORIOUS APPEARING OF THE GREAT GOD AND OUR SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. TITUS 2:13.
