WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO HAS A JEZEBEL AND JUDAS SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4237 2.jpgIf you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you.  And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.

The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship.  Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.

Let me try and explain what this is first.  So you can understand.  

A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal.  Its someone, who has a whorish spirit.  I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain.  Very self-centered.  Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others.  But behind the scenes, pits one against another.  Instigating….

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD.  I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES. 

The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim.  Never accountable.  Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft.  Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties.  Not good.

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU?  AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY?  II KINGS 9:22.  KJV.  

All of these things God abhors.  You may see all or some of these characteristics.  

The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you.  As Christ knew.  Someone, who will not be loyal to you.  Someone who will be a false witness.  Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you.  Someone who will be used by the devil.

AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM.  MARK 14:10  KJV.  

The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ.  So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.  

AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU?  AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.  MATTHEW 26:15  KJV.  

Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ.  He gave Christ the Judas kiss.  As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you.  Accept it.  

BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS?  LUKE 22;48  KJV.  

But Judas was not accountable.  He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.  

Pride…. One can see that.  Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable. 

I think you might get the drift of this.  So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.  

But yet you do.  Or you can fall victim of that.  Love can cause one to sin.  Love can make one blind.  Even in friendship.  

This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol.  And you have to be careful of this.  Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.  

Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you.  But to God.  If you only knew how jealous God is.  How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.  

Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know.  The hard way.  If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will.  And God knows that.  

God is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy?  Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ.  When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.”  See KJV Proverbs 17:17

And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.

THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS.  EXODUS 23:32 KJV.  

Social media is very revealing, about folks.  And their friends….

If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan?  Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them.  Because you like that?  Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves.  Yet God hates it.  No thank you….I would pass on that quickly.  And I have….

NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS.  AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION;  AND SHE REPENTED NOT.  REVELATION 2:20-21  KJV.  

Anyway….  Its easy for me to forgive someone.  To extend grace.  But when that grace is not extended in return.  It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ.  Because Christ is love.  And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.  

All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit.  This can destroy friendships.  And thats besides the point.  Know more then anything that gets God very angry.  His wrath will be revealed.  

So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties.   I am older now, but wiser.  I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.  

But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends.  And it scares me.  To trust folks any more.  Anyway….

Sin can come in somehow.  But somethings can break chief friends.

A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE:  AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.  

PROVERBS 16:28  KJV. 

Loyalty to God must be evident with me.  This is one thing I strive to give my Lord.  And I long from friends.  So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone.  God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again.  He is my example.  Not people.  

And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot.  That I cannot just justify as o.k. 

If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God.  And depart.  Have nothing to do with people like that.  

So one can now stay away, loyal to God.  It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.  

Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit.  Pray about it.  If you see signs, this could be God showing you.  Take heed.  

And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself.  Then don’t hesitate.  Make it right with God, by repenting.  And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.

Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas.  Their endings were not good.  And one should avoid that.  Look it up.  In a King James bible.  And again, I will reiterate.  It has to be a King James for holiness.  Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.

Maybe this is how you will learn.  By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit.  I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus.  Who calls us to be holy.  

And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people.  I do wish people the best.  I have no ill feelings toward anyone.  Thats not who I am in Christ.  No matter how hurt I have been.  I pray, God bless people.  Lessons of life.  But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning.  God sees.  And I know that.  So I say all of this in friendship and love.  But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.  

ISAIAH 54:17  NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 54:17  

Holy King James word. 

In Christ,

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.

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 

DO YOU KNOW WHY LOYALTY IS SO IMPORTANT? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


DSC_0013.jpgDO YOU KNOW WHY LOYALTY IS SO IMPORTANT?

By Elena Ramirez

Do you know why loyalty is so important? The right kind of loyalty? The kind, that is kind, and holy, and beautiful. And good? The kind that is love?

The kind of loyalty, that is true, and royal, that comes from God, is the kind we should all aspire to do for one another. But you cannot have that unless you are loyal to God first. And that is my goal.

Whether someone agrees with me or not. I work out my salvation, with fear, and trembling. Fear of God.

Just remember, and do not ever, ever forget….the Lord, knows about loyalty. God the father, had His Kingdom all in tact, till the enemy the devil disrupted heaven, with his jealousy, and was disloyal, causing war in heaven.

When Christ walked the earth, and He had his disciples. How true were they, when Judas, betrayed Christ, and yes even Peter denied knowing Him?

Folks, God knows and sees, disloyalty. He will not bless being disloyal. Just saying, so next time, someone trusts you. Don’t play with their heart. Because you may lose someone who is true, and was loyal to you. And worse you may lose the sense of what is true and loyal.

Be accountable to God and others, repent, when you see this in yourself. It can come to any of us so easily, but if you love God, you will be loyal to God first. Then to others.

You have to see this, if you truly want to serve God, or to have your salvation in tact. Its called love. Loving God first, then others, as we are commanded.

This is what I aspire to do, and if someone cannot see that and make fun of it. Mock it, try to undermine it, or call it being melodramatic. Or any kind of sarcastic name. I really have nothing else to say….. Nor will I waste my time. I will shake the dust off.

I will walk with Christ….. He understands loyal. He understands love. He taught me love, by saving me. By showing me what He did on the cross. I will be loyal to that.

I love the Lord, and thats who I am, take it or leave it. I love my friends. And I am loyal to them. But I know the difference. A friend, truly loves at all times. Not when its just convenient.

Its always a choice.

AND JESUS ANSWERED HIM THE FIRST OF ALL COMMANDMENTS IS, HEAR O ISRAEL; THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; AND THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND, AND WITH ALL THY STRENGTH; THIS IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT. AND THE SECOND IS LIKE, NAMELY THIS, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF, THERE IS NONE OTHER COMMANDMENT GREATER THAN THESE.
MARK 12:29-31. KJV.

In Christ, praying to always be loyal to the King of Kings…….

A SECRET TO FAITH IS TO BE FAITHFUL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com THE BOOK THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR FAITH...CHECK OUT THIS LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION.

http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com THE BOOK THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR FAITH…CHECK OUT THIS LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION.

People, don’t get it, they do not understand how important faithfulness is to God.  Or how important it is for their own growth.  

They go through the motions, they go through the religion, the traditions, the rituals, the motions, that religion teaches.  Some even think its like magic, and how wrong they are to even make that comparison.  

But they do not understand it comes with a discipline, to have faith.  It is a matter of the heart. To understand what Christ did for us on that cross. To get faith.    

I wrote my book “How to Have Faith” and I really have learned how important my faith is in God.

So much so, that I know, I would have not come this far, if I had not had faith in God.

Well, here is a secret, I will just tell you here….  

But if you are dealing with trying to know God, trying to obey God, trying to even have faith….

Then be faithful, to make the commitment, to God, to your family, to your country, to truth, to love, and that means all people.  The hurting, the broken, our world needs compassion.  

To see, your heart needs that change but it requires the commitment.  People cannot treat God, and country, and their families as disposable, and go on to the next best thing.   And think they will produce faith.  No you won’t reap that, or produce that.  

Thats not being faithful.  In Gods eyes, that is idolatry, that is disobedience, and that is sin.  And it brings a curse.

Oh sweet repentance.

We all need to do that.  But if you cannot see, with eyes to be faithful for that which is really true, including a King James Bible.  What are you faithful to?

I see you are deceived.  Just what the enemy wants to do in each and every one of our lives.  Don’t be blind, when faith can cure the problems, we have in our world. Your problems. Because God is on the throne!

To begin being faithful.  Speak Gods word.  Speak Gods promises.  Be committed to disciplining yourself.  Keep doing that.  

Yes, temptations come.  But with God there is a way out.

Being faithful, to God, your mate, your family, your country, will produce faith in your life.  Be faithful to that which is good in the sight of God.  Don’t fool yourself He sees!

What will happen, is as you begin to be faithful.  Your faith will kick in, when it is needed.  Because life happens.  But if you don’t do this, what will you have to rely on when situations occur?  This will strengthen you.  You won’t freak out.  So get the mindset to be faithful.  

But here is a thought, prevent the bad of life, by faith!  My goodness, pray, God can turn anything around.    

It is a secret.  Yes, I give all my principles in my book, but I cannot give my own livelihood away, without making God first priority.  And I am committed to be faithful.  To God, and my family, and my beautiful country.  Before making money.  

It is one of the most important attributes we can have.  Because it will produce loyalty, and loyalty to God, means you are faithful.  You have faith.

Its a secret, as simple as it sounds. For faith…. Be faithful.

http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

THIS IS A FAITHFUL SAYING, AND THESE THINGS I WILL THAT THOU AFFIRM CONSTANTLY, THAT THEY WHICH HAVE BELIEVED IN GOD MIGHT BE CAREFUL TO MAINTAIN GOOD WORKS.  THESE THINGS ARE GOOD AND PROFITABLE UNTO MEN.  TITUS 3:8

The more I grow in Christ, and the more I know His Holy word, I am convicted, when I say or do something wrong.

My spirit, just knows, when I am out of line so to speak.  Or if I somehow get into a place, where I know, I have done something or said something, that is not strong, is not right for lack of better words in the sight of God.  I know it…

Sometimes, we compromise.  Yet we should be strong in who we are in Christ.  If we know the truth, and we are free, totally free, as Christ has told us, and we have given our hearts, we are grateful for another chance.  Yet, we live in this world, we are called not to be a part of the world, but we can stumble.  We can even fall.

I love repentance for this very reason, but with that said, and knowing we can be given grace.  Do we compromise who we are?  I suppose, because I understand, that grace cannot be extended without repentance, what about those, who have given their hearts to Christ, but they think that is it?  As babies in Christ, do we think we have nothing else to do?  I see the difference, because I am no longer a baby in Christ.  

But babies…without truth, or understanding of Gods ways, and yes even bad doctrine.  They don’t think they have to do anything, any more, and they think they have a place in heaven.  They actually in some twisted sense, believe, it now gives them permission to sin.  Their salvation, is in tact, they think….so they do what they want, and sin.  They compromise Gods grace. 

You know, it is a good thing to know good true, King James scriptures.  Because the other versions, compromise a word here and there.  And it does take away the holiness.  So, when I look at my King James, I see.  God is not mocked.

God is not mocked my friends.  And we never get away with anything, we say or do, for the final outcome, is documented in the book of life.  And yes our names if we have given our hearts to Christ is in the lambs book of life.  Two separate books.  

But, if we play with our salvation, if we play with what Christ has done for us, we can have our names removed, or blotted, out of the Lambs book of life.  Once saved, is not always saved.  And many would argue with that, but do your own search, and see, use the King James Bible as the search, and look for words that mention “blot” or “blotted.”

Every thing we have said or done, is being recorded.  We are judged by our words.  I suppose I am writing this, myself, because I do have the fear of God.  And I want to be stronger, as a Christian, and yes as an ambassador of Christ.  

I don’t like hitting people on the head with the Bible, yet, I know, I have to be firm in my own belief.  I cannot compromise.  I found myself, yesterday chatting with a friend, but I felt like I compromised who I was in Christ, and worse, that I compromised what Gods word says.  I repented.

Such a balance we have to find, in who we are in Christ.  But truly, we have to be mindful yes, of His grace.  But do we compromise?  One compromise, can lead to another, and then we would be totally deceived by the enemy.  I just want us to see, because I know I have not heard this message, from any prominent ministry, but one must be so careful.

I love the Lord, I love serving Him, and I pray He uses me, but I also want to be someone who speaks truth, boldly, and not compromising, yet with love.  I wanted this person to feel love, and not the wrath of God.  

Yet, could we do a disservice if we are not saying exactly what God says?  Lord forgive us.  Help us.  This is where the word “judging” can come in, because many know truth, but do not say anything, because the enemy can use judging to interrupt truth.  Yet we are called to expose darkness.  Do we, speak truth or do we compromise?  

This can cover so very, very much.  But, please my friends, do not take your salvation for granted.  I don’t know what you have learned, or if you come from a place, where you think once saved, is always saved.  Christ told us, that there would be many who would come to him, and say didn’t we cast out devils, in your name.  And He would say….depart, I never knew you.Those are words you do not want to hear, when you stand before Christ, at the end of your lifetime. 

Be very aware of Gods grace.  But try, my friends, try, to not compromise who you are.  Repentance, before a Holy God, being humble, trying to please Him, is what counts.  And why? In fear of Him like the many scriptures tell us.  Oh the fear of God is healthy!

I think of this example, say you have a boss, you love, he is kind, he is generous, he is flexible.  But when he says don’t do something, don’t do it.  And why, because you want your job.  You want to please this boss, because you know, your livelihood is at stake.  You need your job.  Well, I look at it this way myself.  I know God is love, I know He is kind.  He is generous, He extends grace, but I have to take all of His word, and not compromise it.  And why, because I do want to serve Him, but I also know my salvation is at stake.  I need God, I need to please Him.

Sometimes, when I hear some pastors, they act like God flip flops.  He does not.  When it comes to grace, and the law, they think that is it, but all Christ did, was save us from the law of sin and death.  Not His law!  Not His commandments!  They still stand.  Whats wrong with us, if we cannot see that?  We would be deceived.

So friends, keeping a humble repentance before Christ. This is healthy, and yes God will extend grace, but we have to be aware.  We have to be sorry, we cannot compromise.  And I even say this a few days before Halloween, because many Christians think it is o.k. to celebrate this evil holiday, and it stems from hell.  The bottom line is it does not honor God.  Don’t compromise your blessings, or your place with God, or even the fear of God, to play in this spiritual realm.  Fearing God keeps us out of trouble.  

I hope this makes you and me both think.  How precious our salvation is.  Christ gave His life, and He suffered so greatly for our sins.  How can we not look at the cross, and see what He did, and openly compromise what He did.  Oh God forgive us, and God forbid.  Please friends, take this to heart.

Much love, I share it, not wanting to hit anybody on the head, yet so mindful of what Christ did.  I am sorry, Lord, help me not to ever compromise.  Especially, because you gave your life, and paid the penalty for my sins.

BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM: AND HIS GRACE WHICH WAS BESTOWED UPON ME WAS NOT IN VAIN; BUT I LABOURED MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN THEY ALL:  YET NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS WITH ME.  I CORINTHIANS 15:10.

I dedicate this to my friend Shirley Duran.  I love her in Christ, and pray truth will prevail.  Gods truth.

I am excited that Spring has sprung.  I am hopeful, and I see that Spring is Gods way of making progress.  Christ told us, He is the vine, and we are the branches, and without Him, we can do nothing.  I do not want to do anything without Christ, and Spring reminds me, to try and grow, to change, and yes to have progress.  I love progress!

I AM THE VINE, YE ARE THE BRANCHES:  HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM, THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT:  FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING.  JOHN 15:5  

Each season that God has created, can bear understanding to who He is.  And how each season can also affect us spiritually.  Spring is a time for new beginnings.  New life.  Summer is a time where things grow, and prepare for the harvest of Autumn.  Where things again evolve, and die off, and prepare for winter.  And in winter, though, it is cold, and life has stopped growing, God still provides.  I see His hand providing in each season.  

When Spring returns, life does begin again, and the world awakes.  Maybe that is why I am hopeful, right now, because I do see how things can change in this season.  I am awake to the possibilities that progress can happen.  His way! 

Christ is new life.  The sacrifice that He gave for us, is very near and upon us, to remind us of His love.  But it had to be His way, for our salvation.  For resurrection came at a great cost, His life for ours.  He gave it all.  And I see, how through His resurrection, we are guaranteed new life.  If we do grow with Him, if we take His love, and see with eyes of compassion, His own suffering, we may be able to understand our own suffering.

I long for a new season. Right now.  Winter was tough on me, for a few reasons.  And I have struggled and yes suffered with this time of no progress.  Yet there was in some ways, progress. I have to be positive and acknowledge this.  But I am human, and this winter season of my life, has made me sad.

 I admit, I am ever so trustful in Gods word, and I believe in the anointing, and holiness of my King James Bible.  I believe in the power of God, but I also see small glimpses of His promises.

I see, in my heart, how there is a time for everything.  As Ecclesiastes says.  And right now, symbolically, in this time of Spring, I want to plant new seeds.  I want to clean the garden of my heart.  I want to be hopeful, and I want to give God glory through it all.  I want to believe with a stronger faith, that progress is mine.  God has a plan, and I trust that plan!

Progress, that may be simple, and which may even be in baby steps, but is proof I am on that road with Christ.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.

Christ, promised us life abundant.  He did not say, it would be easy. But those seasons, of Autumn, and Winter, and yes Summer, have shown me, at least in my life, it has not been easy.

It may not be easy for me, but it is easy for God.  And I ask for easy, because of who He is!  I have had enough of life being hard.  And I cannot compare myself to anyone else, nor do I want to, because we all have our own struggles, but I want to grow!  I want fruit, that expresses who He is in my life.  And it is easy for God, that is why He is God!

For, yes I long for my life to produce a harvest.  A harvest in my soul, that gives glory to God.  A harvest for my family, that the seed, of who I am in Christ, would be passed on, from one generation to the next.  I don’t know my families history, or the things they did, or who they were.  But, I want whoever I am in Christ to be someone who gives glory to God.  To break off curses, perhaps even generational.  To begin blessings.

To touch other lives, perhaps your life.  To speak truth, in love, to see with discernment, obstacles, and hindrances, so I can tweak them to get right with God, so He can remove anything that would stop who I am in His love.

Yes, I am hopeful, for progress.  Even if it is just a simple thing.  But, I must be grateful, in this time of progress.  I must take time to soul search, and see what I can do to please God.  Is it repentance, or just having a better attitude?  Forgiving someone?  Walking in Love.  A big one for me, is avoiding arguments, or battles that are not necessary?

Is it really taking Gods word to heart, law with grace, and being observant of His word, and obeying?

Whatever it is I have to do, I want to move on.  I want to make progress.  And I do see, that Spring is Gods way of making progress, in the world He created.  And I am in awe of who He is, just looking at all of His creation.  I want to see more of His creation, and I pray, that I can.  Because of who He is.

I want to be creative as well.  I want to be the best I can be in Christ.  I want abundant life, and yes, I want to make progress, and all to the glory of God!  Do you see it too?  Are you hopeful?  I hope so dear friends, with Christ, we can do all things, through our Lord, who Strengthens us.  (paraphrasing Phillipians 4:13)

Blessings, Happy Spring to you, on this first day of progress.
