What is a lost soul? Hmm…. You know, as a seasoned Christian, I think I can identify it, by my own life. I can say, I have been lost.
I have been found. By Christ. But, I have and had my part in this matter as well.
I WILL SEEK THAT WHICH WAS LOST, AND BRING AGAIN THAT WHICH WAS DRIVEN AWAY, AND WILL BIND UP THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN, AND WILL STRENGTHEN THAT WHICH WAS SICK; BUT I WILL DESTROY THE FAT AND THE STRONG: I WILL FEED THEM WITH JUDGMENT. EZEKIEL 34:16. KJV.
A lost soul, is someone who has lost their way, because they are not seeking Christ. Urgently, and in a relationship. Not religion. Please do not confuse religion, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.
I am talking about a moment to moment relationship, and a prayer life, that is constant with Christ. Seeking truth, from your King James bibles. I am talking about someone who has seen the error of their ways, and made Christ their Lord and savior. They believe. But not only do they believe, they actively pursue Christ.
And even if you are a Christian, you can get lost, we all can get lost from time to time.
And the thing is, that there is an enemy, who only wants to deceive, and lead you away from Christ. The enemy does not want you to seek the light.
The enemy does not want you to seek truth, seek the way, the truth, and the life in Christ. (John 14:6 KJV) The enemy, wants a soul to be lost. This is where the enemy wants to lure you into his kingdom of darkness, and that is to be eternally lost.
I feel the urgency lately, to first to speak to my brothers and sisters in Christ, to implore you to guard your salvation. Cherish it. Remember what Christ did on the cross for you. Be humble, be love, forget about the pride, throw away those things that corrupt the inner person. Do not lose your way. DO NOT GET LOST! Be repentant daily….
Remember the way, is narrow…
ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIGHT GATE FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT: BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT. MATTHEW 7:13-14. KJV.
Do you see that last sentence from my King James Bible? It says that there are few that find it. Few…. Are you one of those few, who may not find it, because you are lost?
Friend, only you can determine where you are with Christ. Only you know where you have been? Spiritually, in the light or darkness? We can lose our moral compass, and get lost.
But I implore you, if you have first not made Christ your Lord, and savior, you are in darkness. This is not a joke. This is something, I hope you read, and take to heart.
Because the bottom line is, there is a line, we can cross into light or darkness. And you do not want to play with your salvation. You do not want to lose it, and you do not want to lose a chance to gain, eternal security with Christ. Why do I say this, because again, I have had spiritual battles, where the enemy wants to deceive me.
A little history, here, as a testimony. I accepted Christ as Lord and savior, when I was young. But, I got “Lost” I played with my salvation. When I got older, I sinned, I wanted the ways of the world. I hit the bottom of the barrel so to speak, and not every body may do that, but I thank God I did, because it did teach me to value my salvation.
It taught me to seek Christ, whole heartily, and with every ounce of my being. Because I was a “backslider” I truly believe, if I had died, during that time, before, hell would have been my destination. I would have lost my salvation.
So do not argue with a soul, who has been there, done that. I know. Salvation can be lost. But I seek to always obey God. By His commandments. Do you?
I HAVE GONE ASTRAY LIKE A LOST SHEEP; SEEK THY SERVANT: FOR I DO NOT FORGET THY COMANDMENTS. PSALM 119:176. KJV.
Some people do not hit hard, like I did. Not all people are the same, not all experiences are the same. But the deception is, you may think life is fine and dandy, but you are lost. You may have everything going for you, but you are “lost.” Friend, I implore you, whether you accepted Christ as Lord and savior, or not, do not lose your way. Do not play with your salvation.
Now the deception is this, that comes from the enemy. He wants you to think once saved is always saved. But its not. Because sin, separates us from God. This is King James scriptural. Look up that scripture. In a King James Bible. Without repentance, that sin, will separate you from heaven, when you leave this earth.
The enemy also wants to deceive you by the Bible you use, so use a King James, it is holy and anointed. Friend, the deception is in the changing of the words, and they are not Gods words, they are words that come from hell itself. I have made the comparisons I know.
I implore you, if you are lost, repent. Repent, and acknowledge to God your sins. Your pride. Your short comings. Yes, because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. You see, we just don’t know when we are going to leave this earth. Obedience to God is so important.
And I just know, for, I just see the deception. I see, the “lost” world we live in.
I see Pastors, and Christians, that are in “la-la land”. They really are not aware, nor do they care for those who do not know truth, and they are not seeking the “lost” as Christ called us to do. They are silent. They do not have the urgency to bring people to the light. They do not witness, to others. They do not warn others. The enemy has done a number on so many, because they do not want to judge.
Quit confusing judging with warning a soul! We are called to judge righteously. And we are called to warn. See Ezekiel 33.
And if you are not sharing the gospel, trying to win a soul, you may be lost yourself.
Yes, think about that…..
BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST; IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM. FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD, AND OURSELVES YOUR SERVANTS FOR JESUS SAKE. FOR GOD WHO COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS, HATH SHINED IN OUR HEARTS, TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST.
II CORINTHIANS 4:3-6. KJV.
We must reach out to the lost. We must make sure we do not get lost ourselves. We must beware of the enemies antics. For he does come to kill, steal, and destroy. We must be totally submitted to God in fear of God, for the bottom line is, he is the one who determines whether or not we can enter into His kingdom. Yes fear God.
Friends, only you can ask yourself this?
Are you a lost soul?
By Elena Ramirez
I write this from a place of sickness. A place, where I have the flu, or whatever it is, and it is trying to take my hope away, my trust in God, and where I feel so out of it, that I could just give up. But God… It seems, He draws out my gift, even at the worst of times….
As I try to rest, in the day, I am in a spiritual battle. My dreams, and my spirit is restless, and I hear the devil, telling me to give up. And I say no….
But God reminds me, to always fight a good fight of faith. I am a warrior. I have fought all my life to survive. And I am older now, and I have not met success, in certain ways.
Yes, my life is fruitful, because of my walk with Christ, He saved me. He pulled me out of the miry clay. Yes, my life is successful, because I do have a wonderful husband and son, who love me very much. And the devil, has tried to take that away from me many times, but God, protected me, when it came to temptation. Or just giving up, on my marriage. When there was trouble.
I used to fight and flee. Because I grew up fighting alone. But I learned to fight, and have faith. And no, I have not met goals even in my writing. I am so limited, but God is not. In who sees my writings.
But thats o.k. I will fight the good fight of faith, and continue on. I will share what the Lord puts on my heart. I will fight. Life, is precious.
But our society, does not protect life. We do not promote it, or there would not be abortion clinics, throughout our nation.
Irony of just who I am, my mother, was not able to have children. She did not want me. She did not want children. She actually took medical, advancements, to tie her tubes, and it failed. I was conceived. But she did not abort me. She did not stop the plan of God for me and my life. I was born. My father prayed for me. I am an answer to prayer.
So, I appreciate life, I appreciate the life God has given me. Especially, after I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior. I cleaned up. Quick! I repented, I saw how close I was to death, and even hell.
I will not take the cowardly way out, by ending my own life, even when things have been terrible. And they have been, throughout my life. I have missed the boat, the plane, and the train, in a lot of things. Yes, I have regrets. But I will not give up…
Recently, we have heard in the news of two people, who have given up on life. They were people in the news. By their accomplishments, by their gifts and callings. But they took a wrong turn now. By suicide. I won’t name them. My goodness, they need closure. For their family. And then there was a friend in the family, to my son. He was a young man, and he took his life.
Why do people give up? Why do they stop caring. Yes, life is hard sometimes, but don’t ever give up. That is a spirit of suicide, that goes totally against who we can be in Christ. And that comes right from hell, not God.
You have to know who Christ is, and you have to know who the devil is. And the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Read John Chapter 10 from a King James bible.
Christ, said, He came to give life, and that we “might” have it abundantly. Might? Hmm, what does that mean, when you are trying to sort out life, its situations, your hope, your faith, and you are trying, to figure out what to do?
It does not mean taking your own life, or giving up. I guess, I just come from a place of faith, because thats who I am. Because I have not always had the success, to say, my life is a success. Or that I have lived abundantly. I have not always. But I dream about it. I hope for it, and I won’t let go of God, or of my hopes, in having that life abundantly.
Some might say, because I am in my 60’s thats it, well I say, the devil is a liar.
And I know it. You see, “But God”….. has stepped in so many times, when I was at the bottom of the barrel, and saved me. Yes suicide, and giving up, are options, but not if I embrace who I am in Christ. And thats the whole point here.
I submit to God. I resist the devil, and he must flee. I do it even here, in my writing…. I submit to God, and God can fight the battle in my sickness, in my healing, in my relationships, or in my life, in general. I won’t give up.
I hold on, even now, and I write, and I let this out of my spirit, to proclaim it. Because there are people, who do not know God. They do not know how to believe in God, they don’t know, that there is always a chance, even if it looks like you are not promised tomorrow.
I have seen as you have, many get a bad doctors report, and they believe, thats it. Thats the end of it, just give up, take your own life, at your own pace, and they end it. Thats so wrong.
Look, my God is not an ATM. I am not going to give you a bunch of bull, and try to twist your mind, or your spirit, by telling you, just have faith.
You cannot have faith, if you do not know who God is. Thats the bottom line. You have to learn who He is. You have to know, that He is not mocked. You have to learn, and know, that He has His commandments, His ways, and we are to follow them. Not religion. Not some mans, rules, regulations, and traditions, that he established in a group, and calls it religion, or even Christianity.
When I see, the distortion of Gods holy word, by so many, by pastors, by churches, it makes me righteously angry. And I get that because, I know, the truth, the truth, that truly has set me free. When I see corrupt Bibles, that are part truth, and part lie, yes I get righteously, angry.
But yet, I don’t push my faith on anybody any more. Oh yes, I did, I would be a liar, if I did not admit that. But…. I don’t try that hard any more. I don’t give up. But I don’t try to force faith, or force belief in God. Thats His job, not mine.
But I won’t give up. Even if He does not answer my prayers. Even if He leaves me like I am right now. I won’t….
I will, write, and write, about His goodness, about what pleases Him, because I know Him. I know Him personally.
I don’t have a religion, I have a relationship with Him. And it began, the moment, I saw what He did on that cross for me. That He took those beatings, that He was nailed to the cross, and endured the pain for me. The mocking. The sorrow. He took it, so I could write this, even now to you.
Don’t give up on life! Don’t give in to the spirit of suicide, or even giving up for that matter. After He died, He went straight to hell, to get those keys from the devil, so the devil, would not have that legal right, to make you give up. Or to steal your soul. But you have to start even where you are right now….
You know how you begin?
By His holy King James word. By throwing away that pride, that stupid pride, that wants to deny there is no God. By admitting, you are a sinner. By repenting, for even giving up, on God, and on life. Because there can be a tomorrow. He can heal you. Just by what He did on that cross. He can heal you physically, and spiritually.
But you have to humble yourself in His sight. And yes, repent, daily, because we can sin daily. Many don’t like to believe this, but if you backslide, you can lose salvation, because you gave into sin. Do we not know, sin, separates us from God? This is King James scriptural. He says, He will blot out our names. Look it up…
READ THESE SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.
BUT HE GIVETH MORE GRACE. WHEREFORE HE SAITH, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE. SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD, RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU. DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS YE DOUBLE MINDED. BE AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP, LET YOUR LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND YOUR JOY TO HEAVINESS. HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP. JAMES 4:6-10. KJV.
You cannot resist the devil, without submitting to God first, dear ones.
And the devil is the one, that is telling you to give up, give up on life, give up on your dreams, give up on your health. He is saying give up. He is telling you that with a spirit of suicide for whatever it is….
Don’t you dare. I raise up my sword of truth, to tell him, even now, he is a liar, and must depart, yes, I feel sick. Yes, I hurt, yes, I am sad, but I will never give up on God. I write this with tears, because I know what its like to give up. Yet, I gather myself up, even if I have to crawl on my knees. And I do…
And just this week, again, we saw souls, give up. And it grieves me. Because there is always a chance with God. If only they had submitted to God, resisted the enemy, that spirit, of suicide, and giving up, would have left them. It grieves me, because His commandment is thou shalt not kill. Killing oneself, and the temple, He resides in, is wrong.
I don’t know Gods mercy, in all things. But if I do not do my part, how can I work out my salvation, with fear and trembling, of Him. When we are commanded to fear God. That is not taught by our prolific, ministers. Because they just tickle your ears. But I have nothing to lose but my sorrows, by telling you to fear God, and don’t give up!
Sounds easy? Huh? It is if we take His yoke. He told us, take my yoke it is easy…..
TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME; FOR I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART: AND YE SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT. Matthew 11:30-31 KJV.
Finding rest for your soul, requires your submitting to God, resisting the devil, and He will flee. This is how we find our rest.
Not by giving up. Till my last breath, I will trust God. I will submit to God, I will resist the devil. Whether or not anything else changes, or not. I will try and do it His way. For He is the way, the truth, and life.
Go to Him now, bow down, in the sight of a mighty God. Repent, tell Him you are sorry, tell Him, you want life abundantly. Let Him heal you, and cleanse you, and renew you, for a new lease in life. Read Jeremiah 17:14, it is a prayer, for healing…..
Yes, life, abundantly, by only doing that….. can start the process. There is more. A whole book, that tells you how. And its not just in the book, I wrote, “HOW TO HAVE FAITH.” But its in His holy word, a sword of truth, the King James Bible. Don’t use anything else, if you don’t want to give up.
Yes, I could keep writing, here right now, but a little food for the soul, by writing Gods word, nourishes me, and so I close till, God says, write again, Elena.
Write it again….
Blessings, and love,
Don’t undermine someones pain or sorrow. I tell myself this as well, because I have learned to put on my own armor, when I see, or sense pain or sorrow in myself, and others.
I have to keep my armor on. Or I would fall apart. I would not be effective for the Kingdom of God. I cannot walk in my way, but the way of Christ. So no song of self-righteousness, will make me stronger. But the righteousness of Christ. Not my self-righteousness.
So when I see people with no compassion. No understanding, no comprehension of someones pain. Including their own. I wonder why they react the way they do.
No one, understands our own pain, more then Christ, since He suffered for our sins. For He was compassionate, He was love, He was truth, He was a Physician, He was so much more, that we have to use as an example.
But we have to go to Christ. I know I do….and I do.
When I sense silence, or no offering of compassion, to those that are hurting. Or if I see someone being mean spirited, I wonder why is there no sense of compassion?
You see, we never know, why people are the way they are. What contributed to their coldness, or their passiveness, or even their own mean spirit. So many times, you see people who are rude, or mean, but they don’t know how to give it to Christ. In fact, many that are that way, deny God. So when people deny the only true source for healing, they use others as a scapegoat for their pain.
They get self-centered, selfish, and prideful. And you have to look real close, or you will not have compassion for that miserable soul.
I don’t often share my own pain, or sorrow, because I have learned to give it to God. I have found people don’t always know how to react to others pain. Or how to console.
Yet, there are things that it just does not seem as if they will heal in my own life, until I stand before God. So I sometimes hide my pain, or saddness.
And all I know, is that, I cannot lose my sense of who God is, amidst the pain I sometimes feel, and let that control me. I cannot.
But it does make me look at people through eyes, that have hurt, to give someone compassion. Sweet kind, and beautiful compassion.
Compassion, that is love. That Christ told us to give to one another. Even our enemies. How wise our Lord is. How everything connects, when we use love. How it solves problems, heals wounds, and brings peace. It is a commandment.
So as I write about this, please think about how you deal with people. Maybe you have reason to be angry with someone. Maybe someone has hurt you deeply. Maybe, though, if you tried to understand, what molded them to be that way, you can release your own forgiveness, with compassion, to not react with an eye for an eye to them. Maybe you can stop someone from doing mean, or evil, because you are compassionate.
God only knows why people are the way they are. But I have learned, on my own. I don’t have to embrace that kind of spirit, to grow. To grow in Christ means, I have love, for others, and myself, to not get caught up in things.
I just pray, for those who are grieving, angry, or hurt. Maybe you will have this pain, or sorrow, that I understand, that does not seem to go away. But I pray, you are always comforted with love.
I never want to undermine your pain. But don’t undermine my pain either.
And why I search for God so much. Unless you have walked in my shoes, or I in yours, all we can do is comfort each other. But to be mean, and to devalue your pain, or mine, is not productive. What produces fruit in our lives. Is love….with compassion.
WHO CAN HAVE COMPASSION ON THE IGNORANT, AND ON THEM THAT ARE OUT OF THE WAY, FOR THAT HE HIMSELF ALSO IS COMPASSED WITH INFIRMITY. HEBREWS 5:2 KING JAMES.
FINALLY BE YE ALL OF ONE MIND, HAVING COMPASSION ONE OF ANOTHER, LOVE AS BRETHREN, BE PITIFUL BE COURTEOUS.
MARK 1:41. KJV.
AND OF SOME HAVE COMPASSION, MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
JUDE 1:22. KJV.
Just my thoughts,
How I long to see unity in the body of Christ. How I long to see love. How I long to see that the fear of God was evident. That we as children, brothers and sisters in Christ, would be united.
And we were stronger, in our callings. We would be stronger, in knowing truth. But how can we, when the body of Christ is not even on the same page with God?
Oh it is true, we are not where we should be, or doing what we should for Christ corporately. Look at our world. Lost souls, deception, and just a sense of despair. It should not be. The body of Christ is not united. Prolific leaders, do not even acknowledge this. And they are the blind, leading the blind. Tickling ears, but not bringing truth.
But as I said, to not be on the same page, with God is disobedience. This is not about religion. This is about relationship with the King of Kings. Our Lord Jesus. He warns us. We reap what we sow. All I can do is try myself, to be on His page. Yes a King James page. And I know some of you do too.
But sad, we are not united in this. Allowing the enemy to deceive. Is disobedience.
And days like today, I just wonder….. What will happen, if we don’t wake up, to truth, and become united, and obedient? What are the consequences, when we stand before God?
I try telling all of you, what true scripture says. And it goes in one ear, and out the other, and if you heed it, do you warn your brother and sister. In Christ? You do not acknowledge the error of this. God has warned us all.
This scripture puts the fear of God in me, to be on the same page with God. You see, I cherish my salvation. I cherish what Christ did for me. I know you do too, but you do not see the warning….
Well, I will share it again. And I will always share this. Because it is truth, and we are called to speak truth in love.
Is losing salvation worth the disobedience? To be removed from the book of life. To lose access to the Holy city? Not a debate. This truth stands on its own merit. This is what Gods holy word says. And I just wonder because if people don’t believe this, why would they believe anything else the Holy Bible says?
They cannot because what they believe, is not what God says, but what a publisher, or person has changed, and that corrupts it. Therein is the deception from the enemy.
I pray, the body of Christ gets on the same page with God.
FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK, IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK: AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK.
Revelation 22:18-19 King James version.
400 years worth of holiness, anointing and preservation is in the King James bible.
Friends, I just pray you see this truth, acknowledge it. Yes even repent, if you are using a different bible because this is a very serious matter. I believe in the sight of our Lord. For it deals with His word, His holy word, and if this is not regarded, it is disobedience. If you are reading this, you now know what His word says.
In Christs love,
I want to be, extremely careful here. Because it could be perceived as judging someone. And strangely, many people know the scripture that says do not judge.
But the enemy, has twisted it, so much, that even non-believers will call you out on it, and say, you should not judge. But the meaning, and the other scriptures that talk about judging are thrown out the window. But this is what happens, when people do not obey God. Nor when they are not on the same page, of the Bible.
Yet we are called to judge righteously. We are called to warn one another.
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. John 7:24.
Nevertheless, if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul. Ezekiel 3:21
But, yes, I do want to be careful. Why? Because we all sin, and we all come short of the glory of God. We all do. None is righteous. And I know that for myself as well. This is also King James scriptural.
And I do want to be so careful, not to make people feel bad. But sometimes, when you know truth, and you share truth, from a King James Bible, it is a two-edged sword.
And I find, sadly, very, sadly, many Christians do not know their bible, because they use corrupted bibles. They use something that has been tampered with, and the anointing, and holiness is gone. So when you share scripture with them, even in the matter, of trying to make someone see, that these versions are corrupt, they get angry, and they get very defensive.
Yet, you are showing them scripture, as to what God says, that we are not to change, add, or delete scripture, and they argue with you. Here is one of many, but read from a King James. Revelation 22:18-19. Did you know you could lose your salvation?
Yet, they have no scripture to define the truth, because what?….You are going to argue with what God says? I find that so odd.
I have been told to do more research. But I do not need to challenge myself, to investigate more, when the truth is right there in my preserved King James Bible, that has been preserved for 400 years. And I see the discrepancies. In comparing different bibles to the King James. And I see very sadly, the deity of Christ is diminished, a little here, a little there…
That in itself gives proof, of the validity of this Bible. I obey, from that lump. Not from something that has been corrupted.
I have faith in it. I see the discrepancies. I will not believe lies. For God gives me discernment. Because I obey. But they that dispute this and defend other bible versions believe the lies, and are blinded.
Behold ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Jeremiah 7:8.
Now they say they are Christians. But again, we are not on the same page. And there are so many other different examples to relate to, but yet are we not brothers and sisters in Christ?
Are we not called to love one another? To show we are yoked with Christ?
So how do you treat someone like that? That says they are a Christian yet, they hate you? The answer is with love. Pray for them. And remember we are not to be yoked with darkness.
God will do the final judging. But we are not called to be yoked with unbelievers.
This is one reason, why people do not attend church. Because of hypocrisy, and because people do not always practice what they preach. Or what is preached to them. Or love is not evident. I do attribute a big sense of disobedience, because we are not all on the same page with God. It is so evident.
We are to be united, and divided we will fall. End times I believe are very close upon us. And there are scoffers….
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? II Peter 3:3-4 Read in its entirety King James.
Now look at this verse carefully below.
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. II Peter 3:7
God has separated His word, the King James for 400 years. Isn’t that enough time to prove the authenticity?
I myself, I cannot listen to leaders, or pastors, that do not use a King James. I rely on the sweet Holy Spirit, to be my guide.
I believe I am a seasoned Christian. In my walk with God, I have changed, I have grown, so I see many discrepancies. But it has come with a price. And I take the narrow path. Not the wide gate that the world does. That is King James scriptural. Where I walk alone, often. Yet I am not alone, for Christ is with me. But I do long, for sweet fellowship. With other believers. And especially those who understand my stance, concerning the Bibles we use.
It just makes me sad, because, I am reminded of scripture where there was war in heaven. And it talks about the angels, and how they fight. Can you just think about how grievious that is to God as well. Loyalty, and obedience are so important to God. Yet, these angels fought with each other. Those with God. And those that betray God, and align themselves with the devil. It is a tragic thing, to even think. But it is scriptural.
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil and satan, which deceiveth the whole world, he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 12: 7-9.
Do you notice in this scripture it talks about how the enemy deceives. Well he deceives in taking a holy word, and corrupting it. By changing it. So the believer will be tapping into a word, that is part truth, part lie, because someone changed it. Where else would he get away with it, if believers do not obey God? And they do not use a King James. This will deceive the whole world.
Were they all friends at one time these angels? Even in the name of the Lord. Yes I believe so.
But as true believers, we can test and try a spirit. The spirit of deception is in the earth. So we are called to try a spirit. Here on earth.
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world. I John 4:1
How do I try them? By seeing what bible they use. I just think it is sad, that there are many brothers and sisters in Christ, and we don’t agree. And love is not evident. And what will Christ say, when we stand before HIM? I never knew you….this is also scriptural.
All I know, as I walk with Christ. I know, that my love walk must be evident, and I must pray for these souls, before it is too late. But I will not yoke myself with someone who scoffs at the truth of God. Or ignores even the warnings. I just cannot. The price of Christ giving His life for all of us was too great. And I cannot compromise that. I value my salvation, and I work it out with fear and trembling of God.
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. Phillipians 2:12.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
