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.

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.

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 title of this, is in no means meant to be a part of temptation, but I ask that, because we are human.  Because we do have “wants” and needs, and that statement is so profound, in the word of God.  Psalm 23:1  The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  

To know Christ, as your Lord, and savior, to know He is your shepherd, and to know, no want, is being at peace with God.

And I have to write it for what it is, but many use this scripture, when someone has departed, and they are no longer alive, and to be out of the body is to be present with the Lord.

So, lets analyze this, because as living human beings, we do have needs and wants.  But do you want something that does not belong to you?

To want something that could hurt our souls, to hurt our own personal lives, needs to be taken into consideration.  No one should ever pray to God, for something that really does not belong to them legally.  

And I am using the example of another person, for example, who is married.  Or to want something that would hurt your soul, your relationship with God.  We need to be careful, not to desire or want anything that is of sin, because it would give place to the devil.

So there are plenty of things in life, that we should not want, but yet we could, if we are not right with God.  And I think in just analyzing that scripture we do have to have peace with God, and come to a place in our own relationship with Him, where we just give him, all our needs and wants.  But it sometimes takes time.  So that we do not want.

Maybe thats why I am writing this, for my own sense of want.  You see, I have wanted to do great things for the Lord, and I have been serving Him for many years.  Yet, I have learned, even in this scripture, that  “wanting”  needs to be looked at first, and what is the motive?

Money, or fame, or even favor for that matter, could cost me something.  You see, the motive in which I do this, has to be for bringing glory to God.  

I have seen and learned from other examples, even in ministry, of people who have taken the gospel, and used it for the prosperity message, and when they deliver it, they try to get people to “Name it and claim it” or holler for a dollar.

I have seen those who twist scripture, or take only part of the scriptures, and really, the root of it should be that people would seek God, seek Christ as their Shepherd, and have their souls in tact.  To be in a place of not wanting.   But it is obvious that they tickle some ears, and with hold so much of truth, that one can see they are using the gospel for deceptive reasons.  And that scares me.

First and foremost in any part of ministry, we should be trying to win souls for Christ.  There is a lost world, out there but many are missing truth, because the motive is on prosperity, or something else.  In wanting….

My friends, there are many things.  I have asked for, in want to be given to me.  And in not receiving, I have learned, that God, has been testing me.  So, when you want something, you need to take to heart, what the scriptures say.  And as always what does the true scriptures say from the King James?  Because so many other scriptures have been changed, added, or deleted, that the meaning can be confusing.

The Bible says, we ask amiss.  And that is why we do not receive.  God will not give us something in our “want” again, that is against His truth, His commandments or His ways.  So don’t expect it or ask for it.  

JAMES 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.  

So in wanting, I just have a sense, that there are times, we are tested of God.  We are tested, so we can grow.  God can give anything to us, and can fulfill a need, a want.   He promises to give us the desires of our heart.  But it is always on His conditions, and His will.  Are we asking for the will of God, or our own will?

And are we looking at our relationship with Christ first?  Are we content, in our own lives, and in what we do have?  Having gratitude, and looking at our attitudes, so that we do not lose our sense of being, in Christ.  This can make such a difference.

All I know is, I am not giving up, or letting my dreams, my desires go away.  What I am sensing to do right now, though, is to stop, and be content, in what I am, who I am in Christ, and yes big dreams, and wants could come true, but it has for me, to be for the glory of God.

I pray, if you are struggling with “want” in any area of your life, that perhaps, this could help you, to give you insight, but more then anything so you can understand the heart of God for your own life.

Blessings, and love, again, this is just my thoughts.  But I so want His thoughts to be pleased.  You see, in my own life, I realize it is all about His glory.  He has done so much for me, but maybe there are things I want, that really could hurt me, or could be out of line for me, so I need to just have peace, in who I am right now, and what I have, and trust God.

So that in itself, is my way of saying, Lord, not my will but yours….

JESUS ASKS: IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AND FOLLOWING ME, WHY ARE YOU VOTING DEMOCRATIC? ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez


Jesus asks you this.  Why? Why would you vote Democratic, if you are following Him, and you have given him your heart?  This could hinder your walk with him, not only now, but for eternity.

The Lord gave me this assignment, to write this today.  Before, today, I had no inclination to write this.  I felt, well, let the facts present themselves.  People, will vote with a clear conscience.  But, I see more then ever, that the devil, has blinded people.

Personally, I did not want to write about this, at first.  And, more, and more each day, that goes by, and I see, the news, and I see, the bias slant, from even the media, etc.  I see, that Christians do have to speak up.  We cannot let evil overcome our nation.  We cannot just stand by and not say anything.  We have to be bold.  We have to be strong in Christ.  For really, the battle is the Lords.

A friend of mine, recently told me, that when we were growing up,  she did not like me then, because she thought, I was political.  I did not realize this political side of me, and I have not spoken, as boldly as I have, until this recent race, for our President.  But I am speaking very clearly politically, and as a Christian.  Do I care if people like me?  Yes, I do.

But, I care more, that I please my Lord, and He likes what I do.  I take into consideration, His sacrifice, on the cross, it was too great.  He took each beating, and became the penalty for our own sins.  He sets us free, in His love.  He speaks to our souls, with love, to guide us daily.  Yes, I know the difference before I accepted him, and now.  So I am bold to say this all.  Souls are at stake.

If people do not like me, because of what I write its not my problem.  I trust God.  His angels are about me.  Psalm 91:11.  For he shall give His angels, charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  This word, is for me….And for all those, who love him.  Jesus is not a respecter of people.  He loves us all.  White, brown, red, yellow, black.  But I write this, because this is spiritual warfare.  A matter of good and evil.  So I stand with my armor on.  For God will bless those who bless me, and curse those who curse me.  Genesis 12:3. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:  and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.   

I have to say something, because many Christians, do not know, the difference.  And are being misled.  Its like the saying, some say, that many have drank the Kool-aid, and been influenced by the Jedi-wand.

So what I write, is based on the word of God.  The King James bible, and it is based on my relationship, with Christ, and not with religion.

I feel like I have to specify this, because religion, has been mentioned, in some of the debates concerning this.  For some religions, have been made specific, and have made mention of some things, that they believe should be followed, and adhered to, but yet, some of the people, who are supporting the Democratic party, do not follow these.  And yet, they say they are Christians.

This is not about religion, rules, and traditions, made by men, but by my relationship with Christ, my savior.  The Lord God almighty, who has clearly given us commandments, and His word, to live by daily.  It is our responsibility, to search His truth, yes even in matters of voting.

And I am talking first, and foremost about Abortion.  This is very close to my heart, for it is wrong.  Christians, if anyone is a true Christian, they should be able to see, and clearly define, that this is wrong in the sight of our Lord.  Its not a womans right, for that child within her body. This right, does not belong to her, but to that child and God.  But a helpless child, cannot stand for its rights in this.  It is trusting that its mother, would protect it.  But if she, a woman does not know what God says, Thou shalt not kill.  Exodus 20:13.  And that, in the fear of God understands, this is a commandment from God.  She will think this is right, and believe, the ideology of this democratic party.  For they strongly support it.

But….How can she know?  Unless she knows what God says…And, I will not go into the deep legal issues, of rape, etc.  But heres a thought, a moral thought, of right and wrong….Why not let the child live, and give it up for adoption, to someone, who will love that child.  Give it the right, give it the chance to live.

That is why, God is using people, like Romney/Ryan to support the right of helpless little babies.  But this current administration, does support abortion, and this really strikes me as strange, since our President, is a minority.  But, a racist, against minorities, years ago, implemented abortion clinics, to cause a form of genocide.  Her goal, was to eliminate, minority babies.

These things, I do not address to someone, who is not a Christian, because they have no understanding, of what God says, because they have denied God.

But for you, who is seeking God, seeking answers to prayer, seeking a better life, how can you follow Christ, with a clear conscience, and yet vote Democratic?  God is not mocked.  We cannot go to a Holy God, and ask for answers to prayer, if we are not being obedient, to His Word, and now following the agenda of the world!  We are called to separate ourselves from the world, and follow Christ.  His ways, His truths, for their are many who are anti-Christ, anti-God, anti-religion, for that matter.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man, love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.  Little children it is the last time;  and as ye have heard that anti-christ shall come, even now are there many antichrists:  whereby we know that is the last time.  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us;  but they went out, that might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy one, and ye know all things.  I John 2:15-20

Dear friends, the Democratic agenda is anti-Christ.   

The democratic agenda, and its ideology, is an agenda, that comes from the world.  Do not forget, that the DNC denied God, and Israel, our friend, when they could not agree, to disagree implementing this in their platform.  Christ, told us, a house divided cannot stand.  But he knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and a house divided against a house falleth.  Luke 11:17.  If you are supporting a house, that is divided, and will fall.  You will fall as well…..

How can we as Americans, expect them to unite us, when they are themselves, divided?  They cannot unite a country, because their is division.  And talking about division, what about the recent tape that has surfaced, from the Daily Caller, that gives information, and from the President himself, inciting that racism, was the reason, New Orleans, was not getting speedy relief?

These kind of things, do not bring unity in our nation, or with our God.  What about the tape, that also incites, the President, stating we are not a Christian nation?  How insulting that is to many Christians.  We love our Lord.

For, our foundation is on the Judea principles, that stem from Gods word, the King James bible.

God is not mocked, and when we affiliate ourselves, with those in leadership, who deny our Lord, by voting for them, etc.  We are denying, what God says.  And pure and in simple terms, this brings judgement, to our nation, and for us individually.

We have for four years, seen the track record of this administration, and do you really think you can stand for four more years of this?  The economy is crazy, gas is sky high, and greed, at an all time precedent.  Yes, I am one of these people, who believe, God will provide.  But I have my part in it.  I must separate myself, from the things, that offend God, so I can be blessed.  And blessed I am….

There are many agendas, and special interest groups, that now support the Democratic ticket, and they are not for the interest of unity, in our country, but do cause division.  Their sole purpose, is for their interest, and does not support, the American, and patriotic, views, our forefathers, brought, when they founded this country.

When I was growing up, I was raised on the Democratic party.  But that party is not the same.  The values are not the same.  It has gone, in a totally different, direction.  When I was growing up, you could pray in school.  You pledged your allegiance to the American flag.  Patriotism, was encouraged, for we had seen, by history, how our American soldiers, have gone to war, and to protect our Democratic rights.  Based on the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence.

Rights, slowly, are diminishing, and I see, if this Democratic party, has its way, now, you can count, on more of your rights, diminishing.  American Christians better wake up, and fight a good fight of faith, and see this, because if you do not, you will not have anyone to blame, but yourself.  God, does not change.  We cannot implore and pray to a holy God, if we as a nation, are in sin, and promoting, or following Democratic values.  This will bring curses, and an evil, to this great land, if we do not see the truth in this.  There are other issues, that go against the truth of Gods word, for example, same sex marriage.  God promotes, marriage, between a man and a woman.  Period..

I do not judge anyone here, or tell you this in any kind of hate.  For I do love, you, as Christ loves, you.  With compassion.  If my words, convict you good, then go to Christ, repent, and turn from the sins.  But my words, and the words, I am writing here, are not meant to condemn.  That comes from the devil.

No, Christ, is calling to you, and asking you to search your heart.  He is asking you to see the difference, in these political parties.  He is telling you to look at your own relationship with God, and now is the time, to make amends with Him.

Maybe you do not know Christ.  Maybe you never were introduced to Christ, as your Lord, and savior, but you can change your mind, and your heart, for eternity.  For my friend, this post, is not just to tell you to take a different approach in politics, and to vote, Republican right now.

It is to implore you, to seek a safety net, for your salvation.  For one’s Salvation, is at stake, in choosing, these political choices.

I will say, here for the record, I will not be affiliated, with any political party, that has mocked my Lord, that contradicts, His truth, that supports special interests.  That supports Abortion, and Same-sex marriage.

I may love the sinner, but I will not be affiliated with them.  For good manners are corrupted, by these kind of relationships.  The word, of God says, be not unequally yoked with darkness.  With the ideals of the world.  Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  II Corinthians 6:14.   

In fact, I have friends now, that are democrats, but if they see how I feel now, how Christ feels, I won’t have anything to do with them after the election.  I am giving them a chance.

Maybe Christ will give them more of a chance, in His graciousness, but I cannot for my own, conscience, be a phony, and not be loyal to my Lord.  So, I will cut off these friendships.  So, if you see me no longer as a friend, on FB etc.  You will know why.

I will say, here publicly, that I am voting for the Romney/Ryan ticket.  I am voting for America, for God to bless our country.  I am voting, against Socialism values, that this present administration, is trying to creep in.  By taking from the rich, to give to the poor.  By hurting our elderly, in the health plan, that was pushed through, without, the voice, and voting of Americans.  For all Americans, who will be taxed, and yes fined, if they do not support this.

I am voting, for a gentleman, Mr. Romney who I see, has integrity, and compassion, for all people.  He is noble and caring, even in His closing comments, he supported our military.  They have fought for all of us.  To protect us, as a nation, and the freedoms we have.

I am a latino, third generation American.  My own father, was in the army of the United States.  My grandfather, served in World War II.  My father, and mother told me stories of racism.  Being denied, in restaurants, because they were hispanic.  So I believe, in our rights, as Americans.  And Mr. Romney does too….

Including my race, he understands, latinos, who have been persecuted, for centuries.  His own family history, dictates, his understanding, because his own Father, was born in Mexico.

He can help create jobs, for our future generations.  But do you really want to transfer a debt, this country has to future generations, because we did not do anything about it right now, in our voting.

I am voting for Romney, because again, he knows, what Gods word says about abortion.  Its wrong.   I am voting for Romney, for he is a business man, who has an understanding of business, and knows, Americans need jobs.  And will create jobs.  I am voting for Romney, because he can implement a budget, one that has not been seen in this administration.

I am voting with a conscious, to please God.  This is my number one priority.  To please my Lord Jesus, because His sacrifice is that great.  Yes, I know, many do not believe, as I do.  But living in this great nation of the United States, I understand, their are differences, but this is the land of the free, we are given freedom, where others, can worship, and have the freedom, to believe, or not to believe.

I just don’t want my rights, or the rights of others rights, infringed upon, because the values, of this administration, does not agree with me.  And has special affiliations, and interests with others.

These are our rights, but we cannot expect to keep them, and please Christ, if we vote, Democratic.  I believe, Romney, is a clear choice, for that which is right, and which will please God.  These are “just my thoughts,” and my freedom of speech, to express this.  But I do not judge you.  I will not tell you, individually, that you are wrong, for those are your rights too.  I am not anybodies judge.  Thats too big of a job for me.  But do I want government, telling me, I cannot even talk about a leader in church, due to IRS regulations?

No.  This country better wake up.  You better listen to Christ, if you want freedom, spiritually, and in this nation.

If this, inspires you, go to Christ, and ask him.  This is not meant to be rude to anyone.  Just because we do not agree.  And I will not dignify any negative, rude, or mean and evil thoughts.  In my freedom and rights, to express this….

And I will say this for the record, it again, is not a matter of choosing someone by race, but of uniting ourselves, as believers in Christ, for unity, and for our nation.  For, it is something, I pray, would just open the eyes of people, to see the truth, to vote with a clear conscience.

I pray, you vote and pray for Romney.  And no, I will not address, his religion, of being a Mormon.  Thats his choice.  He has freedom of religion too.

But he does need our votes.  He needs that from us, but we need him, for a better America.

More then anything, we need our Lord, back in our country…..to be the great nation, He intended it to be.

So Jesus asks again….

IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AND FOLLOWING ME, WHY ARE YOU VOTING DEMOCRATIC?

Father, may we bless you, and God, we ask that you bless America, as we bless you in the way, we vote.  I put this matter in your hands, and I thank you, and praise you for this great nation, I live in, and I pray for Mr. Romney, and yes I pray for Mr. Obama.  Help us all, every race, every nation, that is represented in this country. May your truth prevail.  In Jesus name.  Amen

DO YOU “EMASCULATE” OR PUT DOWN YOUR MAN, YOUR HUSBAND?


I ask this question, because I see some women do this.  There is “A” spirit, I have detected, where, women, put down, criticize, demean, and give no credit, to their men, but harm them, by emasculating them.  To be perfectly clear, here, I want to show you the definition.  Because I have seen, and heard, women who do this.

emasculated) deprive (a man) of his male role or identity : he feels emasculated because he cannot control his sons’ behavior.• archaic castrate (a man or male animal).• Botany remove the anthers from a flower

Many women, do this, because perhaps, they did not have a male role model, in their home, growing up.  Or they don’t feel, like their man, meets the potential, as the leader of the home etc.  Maybe you make more money, then your husband, so you feel entitled, to be the boss.

But when any woman does that, they take on the role, of the man, and they “wear the pants” so to speak.  Its wrong…

Women, may have learned this from their own mothers, by example.  Or they just took the reins, in authority.  Whatever the case may be, there is a right and wrong way, to have order, and peace, and love, in a household.  And that is NOT the right way.

Some men, may not have had a strong, male role model, when they were growing, up.  So they relinquish their authority, and they let the woman, take the role.

God only knows if this contributes, to not having a strong sense of their male sexuality, as well.  For men and women.  Because so many people, now a days, are confused, as to what their role is.  Male and female. etc. And I won’t get into all that, or even debate it, because I am not sure what causes that, besides sin, and because I have always accepted my role, as a female.

I have accepted, what God made me.  A woman……I know my role, as a woman of God, and as his wife.  And my man, knows who he is, and who he is as the man, of the house.  His duties, prove that to me.  By his sense of responsibility.  As the protecter, the provider, and as a man of God.  And just his strength….

Sure we talk things out, he includes me.  but neither one of us, use our marriage, or our authority, in anything, to put each other down.  We protect each others feelings with each other, and around each other, for each others sake.

So, if you want a healthy marriage, and relationship, with the man you love.  Its time, to give back the authority to your man, and that is by, beginning to stop, putting him down, and criticizing him.  To be aware of this in public, as well.  In front, of friends, and family.  Strangers….

Being aware of this.  Be aware of your hurtful words.  Aware, that you are out of line….out of order.  And just make the decision to stop it.  Perhaps, go to your man, confess, your fault in this, and make an attempt, to change.

Pray.  Pray to God, and ask Him, for guidance.  Read your Bible.

Sure, you may know your man, better then anyone.  He may have made many mistakes, and still, may be lacking or failing you, in his responsibilities. etc.  But making your man, feel, low, is not the solution, to the problem.

A good woman, builds up her man.  She knows who she is in Christ, and the things they do together, in Christ, will be blessed.  The foundation, starts with Christ.  As the head, of the household.  Then it is by that order, placed on the man.  And the word, tells us to be submissive to our husbands.

Now this does not mean, that the man, uses any kind of authority, to put her down, or demean her as well.  In fact, a man is to love his woman, as his own flesh.

And, there has to be a healthy balance, in sharing, responsibilities, and yes, authority.  If a woman, takes that lead, and begins using any authority, she is hurting her man greatly.

I have seen this on television, as a joke, and in other conversations, where women, relate to their men, and just being a witness, to this in public.  Women, putting their men down.  Talking down to them, making them feel inferior.  This is so wrong.   Women’s liberation, in this, has hurt women, and their relationships.

Look, we all make mistakes, in relationships, and sometimes, we as women, feel like we have to hold our ground.  But if you do it, at the expense of hurting your man, your hurting yourself as well.

God did not create woman first, He created man first.

And truthfully, she was the one, who first listened to the devil, and made the mistake, that caused Adam to sin.  How healthy would it have been, if Adam, had stopped her, and said, lets go to God.  And ask, God.  Mankind would have been saved the curse of sin.  But he did not.

And together, they were punished, for the sin, of disobedience.  “Together, divided, you won’t stand.  United, together with God, as the foundation, you will stand together.”  But you can’t keep chipping away, at your husband, or the foundation of you both, and your marriage, your love, your family, will fall.  Your children, will learn the wrong way, to a relationship.  Because they are greatly influenced.  If you keep putting him down.  You need to see this.

And if you are not seeing your man, take the lead, as a spiritual leader, in the household, keep on being who you are in Christ, and you may “gently” nudge him, but keep on praying, keep on being  a woman of Christ, virtuous, and like the Bible, says, he will change, by your example, and your household will be saved.  I Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; else were your children unclean, but now are they holy.  

That is Gods promise.  And with that, being a woman of God, “consistent.”  But don’t put him down.  Dont!

Look we know how to influence our men, and you know what I am talking about, in the sense, that whatever we do as women, should be done in love, kindness, and we can influence our men to make good decisions, and to be the role model, and leader of our families.  Christ is that foundation.

But if we take it upon ourselves, to put the cart before the horse, we will just mess things up.  Thats another reason, why I advocate, holiness, and abstinence, before marriage.  You need to make the lump holy, by Christ.

I have learned through the years, in my own marriage, there is a right way, and a wrong way, to approach your man.

A true, man, also knows who he is, and will not let you, run over him, or put him down.  He demands respect.  But a smart woman, knows this any way, and does not test, the waters.  I have no idea, how much this could even affect, women, to avoid, marital problems, or abuse, for that matter.  Because I learned this early in my marriage.  But the mistakes I made, in the beginning, was due, to me, getting out of order.

It takes time, and it takes love.  But, after almost 25 years, we both learned.  And there are things, we both do, to honor each other.  I just believe, if you take this to heart, you take it to God, and you as a woman, stop emasculating your man.  You will let love, Gods love, have its way.

Women, do you emasculate, or put your man down?  Its time, to see, this, and stop, the damage.  Bind that spirit, of discord, of confusion, that spirit of control, that changes the role in your relationship and marriage, and give it to God, to change.  Release Gods ways, and Holy spirit, correction and love.

And let love, Gods love do a new thing.  “THE” Spirit of God.  You will see the difference, I know.

Just my thoughts, with love.  Elena Ramirez

Father, I pray you would be honored, and glorified, in all I do.  In my relationship, with my husband.  You have taught me, the difference.  So, with love, I pray, for others, who may have this problem.  I thank you for teaching us through the Holy spirit, the etiquette, so to speak, in relationships, in holiness, in matrimony, in honoring one another.  In not putting down our men. Lord, help any woman, any couple in this who may identify with this as a problem.  There is always a way with you, in Jesus name.  Amen.
