GRACE DOES RUN OUT, AND THEN THERE IS THE WRATH OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez 

For those who embrace the “grace” message, its beautiful.  But, remember grace does run out, and then there is the wrath of God.  If sin, is evident.  He tells us,  to REPENT.  I believe time is running out.

I have been seeing a lot of messages on grace lately, and yes again, grace is a beautiful thing.  

But…

If grace is taken for granted, and one does not repent, or see the error of their ways, well, they will miss it.

And I think thats what bothers me about so many of these “grace” messages.  Is that they really do undermine, and really are a disservice to many in the body of Christ.  They are not seeing there will be a time, of wrath from God.  The call to repent, to get right with God, is missing.  From many of these grace messages.  

BECAUSE THEY HAVE FORSAKEN ME, AND HAVE BURNED INCENSE UNTO OTHER GODS, THAT THEY MIGHT PROVOKE ME TO ANGER WITH ALL THE WORKS OF THEIR HANDS; THEREFORE MY WRATH SHALL BE KINDLED AGAINST THIS PLACE, AND SHALL NOT BE QUENCHED.  II KINGS 22:17  KJV.  

See this scripture tells me, that He our Lord, is talking about someone who knew Him.  Someone that may have been saved.  But they forsook Him, and chose sin, and with idolatry, they provoked God, to have anger.  And His wrath will be revealed.   So, if sin, is an idol, in any form, yes God is jealous.  And who can blame Him?  Thats why we have to see our own ways.  

And when I see a “seasoned” Christian, not seeing the truth of this, and actually fighting to defend grace, not seeing the error of these grace messages that leave out a very fundamental point.  I am wondering what kook-aid, did that person drink?  And I have been mocked, and actually given the “silent” treatment. Concerning this subject matter. And they just don’t understand…

BUT THEY MOCKED THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, AND DESPISED HIS WORDS, AND MISUSED HIS PROPHETS, UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY.  II CHRONICLES 36:16  KJV.  

Because we do reap what we sow.  And God is not mocked.  The world calls it Karma, but I tell you friend, don’t confuse what the world says, and what God says.  Read Galatains 6, from a King James.  

Many in the body of Christ, have no true concept, or understanding how valuable our salvation is.  Many think they actually have a license to sin, and thats so wrong.  Because these graces messages, get off balance.  

Yes, if we believe and accept Christ as Lord and savior, we are saved.  But you are not saved, if you break the contract.  If you sin, and do not repent. The covenant, it is a contract, if you accepted Christ, and repented.  So this brings us to the point, well then to ask, am I still saved?

I think this scripture answers this.  

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

That scripture tells me, that the righteousness, he thought he had, but abused by not repenting, means spiritual death. Christ is life. His promise is for eternity.  But if someone trusts their own righteousness, and sins, his or hers righteousness, will not be remembered. In the book of life. So yes, I do believe one can lose their salvation. And I won’t argue about it.  But even here I warn, repent.  Repent even daily.  

You see, we miss it.  I know I have, but I do repent, and that helps me in my journey of life, I am not trusting grace, because there is an enemy to deceive, and many say, oh works don’t cut it.  Well I would rather work at being a better Christian, work at trying to keep at His law, then to miss it.  

But…If you sin, purposely.  If you do not repent.  If you are depending on “grace.”  Well you are missing it.  You are not growing for that matter, but time, may run out, and we all will stand before God.  

And I think thats what really bothers me about the grace messages, is they leave out that part.  They don’t warn.  Many think you are judging them but its warning, and love warns.  

God did not flip flop flop, from the Old Testament.  To the New Testament.  And many think the law, is not necessary, and thats exactly what the enemy wants any of us to believe.  

I have even been accused of being legalistic.  Well, God was legal, when He gave His law, and I love His law.  

O HOW LOVE I THY LAW!  IT IS MY MEDITATION ALL THE DAY.  PSALMS 119:97  KJV.  

We all need Gods laws, to understand, and to know what pleases Him.  Grace, is only extended if we repent.  And I would say, that yes, in the times we are in, this is a grace period.  

Its a time, to grow.  Its a time, to see the error of our ways.  And its a time, to repent.  Its a time, to accept what Christ did on that cross, and to step up and serve, and to obey, and be a reflection of someone who is on the vine with Christ.  

But, I believe this grace time is running out for us individually, but also for the entire world.  Now is the time, of salvation.

LEAD ME IN THY TRUTH, AND TEACH ME:  FOR THOU ART THE GOD OF MY SALVATION; ON THEE DO I WAIT ALL THE DAY.  PSALMS 25:5 KJV.  

Now is the time, to get right with Christ.  I do believe grace is beautiful, I am so grateful that in my lifetime, God did extend grace to me a sinner.  But as I have grown.  As I have searched for God, more and more, I see the error of my ways.  Even after I was saved.  I see, how misguided I was.  And still can be sometimes.  I am not perfect.  But, I see, how I was basically living on the fence, between the ways of the world, and yes God.  But not until I really opened my eyes, in other spiritual matters, did I really come to see, how misguided we can be.  And grace can do that.  And I will begin with the fear of God.

The fear of God, is not taught, its not in many Christians conversations, nor does it come from the pulpit from many.  

So, I do see the problems.  I do see, the deception, and I do believe, grace is running out, but we need to get right with God now.  Before we leave this earth, before time runs out for eternity for the lost.  

Hell is real, and many do not like to hear the Hell and Brimstone, message, but that goes hand in hand, with the grace message.  And many would say that turns people off, I would rather turn you off, so you turn on to God. Don’t get tunnel vision, and miss the rest of what God says.  There will be His wrath.  

HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS: AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON.  BUT THE FEARFUL, AND UNBELIEVING, AND THE ABOMINABLE, AND MURDERERS, AND WHOREMONGERS, AND SORCERERS, AND IDOLATERS, AND ALL LIARS, SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE:  WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH.  Revelation 21:7-8.  KJV.

Perhaps, my understanding even in my own relationship, with God, with who I was as a sinner, may propel you, or prompt you to see the danger of just trusting in grace.  It makes one lazy, it makes one vulnerable, and gullible to the ways of the devil.  Please wake up, and don’t just trust grace.  

Today, I plead with you, take a look at your own life, your own soul, and see if you are off balance, with the grace message.  Taking for granted what Christ did for you.  Taking for granted your salvation.  You may be missing it.

BE YE AFRAID OF THE SWORD:  FOR WRATH BRINGETH THE PUNISHMENTS OF THE SWORD, THAT YE MAY KNOW THERE IS A JUDGMENT.  JOB 19:29  KJV.  

Blessings, and love,

A Christian, really does need to keep his or her guard up.  There are some sick messages out there, and they are every where.  It is so sad, that more moral, or thoughts of integrity, are not available to see, view, and ponder on.  But, it is a fight, I suppose between good and evil.

Evil.  Yuk, just even writing the word can leave a bad taste.  Spiritually, that is, because if you ponder on something, you are eating it.  No, I remember what God says, even from the beginning.  Do not eat from the tree of good and evil.  It was a commandment, Adam and Eve broke.  They should have gone to God, which we can still do, and pray, but symbolically, the message is the same.  Do not sin.  Don’t eat from the tree of evil, eat from that which is good.  So how do we guard ourselves?

Well, we really do have to be in tune to what God says.  His holy word, a word not corrupted.  A King James word.  We have to be in prayer, and we have to have our armor on.  The armor of God.

There are many “subliminal” messages, that tell you its o.k. to sin.  Its ok to talk to other spiritual entities, to believe in ghosts, to have sex, to be dishonest, they are every where!  etc. etc. 

You just have to know what is right and wrong in the sight of God. 

Just yesterday, I saw one, at the movies, where they turned it into a cartoon, but it came straight from hell.  Where a dark spirit, kept having to fight to make a point.  And I thought a kid, a child, would be entertained with that.  And as I looked in the audience, I was seeing adults take it all in.  I just shook my head, and told my husband the subliminal messages of that sort comes to distort all that is good.  

It really is sad.  What is going to happen, that we may not even be able to turn on our televisions, or watch a movie, with some kind of filter, to quench those subliminal messages?  I don’t know.  

All I know is I am aware of them.  And not everything goes.  Part truth, part lies, do not bring innocence back.  It does not make you feel that good warm, and fuzzy feeling.  That sense of good.  That sense of moral integrity.  

Those kind of subliminal messages, say its o.k. to be bad.  When I am looking for a good movie to watch.  I either have to look for a very old movie, or one that has a good story line, without the implication of some kind of sin.  I look just at the menu of what movies that are playing, and even in the titles, the subliminal messages are so bad, that you cannot help but see the goal in our society is to pervert.  It almost seems like an agenda.  Or a conspiracy.  Pollute the minds of people.  And maybe that thought is not too far from the truth, because I wonder where are the systems in place to keep people safe from some of this crap.  

I really believe that if we take enough of this crap into our systems, we can sin.  We can, pollute our own spirits.  

I know, just by writing this, I am just tapping into the atrocity of this.  But we need to have to see.  We have to monitor our kids, and ourselves.  There is so much filth out there, that it does pollute the way people view things.  No longer, do we see wholesome shows, like I used to when I was a kid.  Those that have a moral message, to be good, or to pray, or to seek God, when in trouble.  When was the last time you saw some disaster movie, where they prayed.  No, they do not. They may sing “row, row your boat”, to get their minds off of the danger, but its sad.  (I won’t name that movie.) 

Subliminal messages, should be good too.  Try looking for them.  And if you cannot find them, try being an example of a subliminal message that gives glory to God.  That gives the example of moral, honesty, and integrity.  If not for someone else to see.  For yourself, to see as you repent.  As you seek God.  To live a clean life, an honest life, a life that has discernment to depart from evil, and that one that someone can say, that person really is a reflection of Christ, in all ways, including being a good example.  

Just my thoughts, today, blessings and love,

 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candle stick, that they which come in may see the light.  The light of the body is the eye, therefore when the thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.  If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.  Luke 11:33-36.

Lord, my prayer, today is help me to know what your word says.  Help me to know your heart.  Help me, help my own heart to be pure, and to think good thoughts.  Not evil.  Not filthy.  Not cold, or mean, or hateful thoughts.  Help me to see the subliminal messages, so I can have discernment between good and evil.  So I can depart from evil.  Help me not to look at any vain thing, or anything that is perverted.  So I do not accept these things.  Lord, help our society.  Help others, to see that we are what we eat.  And that is spiritually as well.  Lord, I repent.  Because even last night, after watching some junk on television, for lack of anything else to watch, I felt cold in my spirit.  I do repent.  Forgive me, and help me to change my viewing habits, on television, or by what I read, or view.  So I do not accept anything that offends you.  And so I can grow.

In Jesus name.  Amen
