Yes, I do refuse to tell you God loves you the way you are.  Because it is sloppy agape.  Every one says, it, but where is the strong Bible teachings to have fear of God, or to obey?  I don’t see it.

I did not see it, till I really saw the error of my own ways.  But because I was at the bottom of the barrel.

Many people are there, as well, and they don’t know how to have faith, or to get out of that barrel.  It can be too late for some!  Tomorrow is not promised to any of us!

And that is another misconception.  Because we should all live for God!

Yet we know, that God loves us, from John 3:16.  He does love the whole world.  But I refuse to tell you only that, because I see thoughts that say God loves you the way you are. That you don’t have to prove anything….

Oh they are so sweet in thought…..sugar coated.

But they are wrong in the sense they are deceiving. Because they do not stimulate you to grow. Or for you to see your sins and to repent. Even high profile ministries tell you just to accept Jesus and that’s it.

No!!!!! There is more to it. You have to learn, and unlearn bad habits.

You have to seek a holy word. You have to pray. We serve a mighty God, and his ways are not our ways. Do your part….And that’s why I warn people to use a King James. That has not been changed by mans thoughts! Work out your salvation with trembling and fear. Truth!

I am not going to give people a tickling of ears, or sugar coated gospel.  The world has been deceived by the enemy.  And where is the truth, that we need?

We are not getting it from the spiritual leaders we have.  I am sorry, they are in LaLa land.  Money, the prosperity message,has deceived so many. Watered down gospels, that have been corrupted by people, has deceived this generation.

You see I am from both generations, born in the 50’s, and taught the fear of God.  And this generation from the late seventies, picked up those bible versions, that have corrupted truth.  So I do see, the discrepancies.  I see the lies!  I see the deception!  No God does not love us like this!  He has better plans for us, if we would wake up!

More then ever, we need to search, and see our own hearts, and see Gods heart.  We need to obey.  We need to humble ourselves in the sight of God and man.  We need each other.  The body of Christ needs each other.  But there is so much division.  I don’t see the love.

Well I love you enough to tell you, yes God loves you, but not the way you are.  I refuse to tell you that.  Because if I just left it like that, you would not grow.  And I tell you that, because every day, we should try and learn to be closer to Christ.  As we grow on that vine.  People who do not try and learn, are their worst enemies.

We will never, ever be good enough, unless that blood of Jesus cleanses us.  The sacrifice of Christ was too great, and holy, and must be honored.

But that is a heart matter, that has to be taken to the cross in obedience for what Christ did, and it is not lip service.  Wake up people!  Are you going to be deceived by the enemy?  The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom!  

And just one more thought, that may just jolt you!  Saved is not always saved.  Without that repentance!  You are lost!  Your soul will go to hell.  God does not condone sin.  It is called being a backslider.  Repent.  I warn you in love.  I want to see you in heaven.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James.  Yes God can take our names off of the Lambs book of life.  Don’t be fooled thinking you are o.k.  And that God loves you the way you are!  Don’t!!!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. (Isaiah 55:8 KJV)

Oh well, maybe somebody will read this, and see the truth!  But I will write it and speak it if God opens a door for me….

Check out this post, it may just open your eyes.  The reasons why I am so adamant to defend and promote the King James Bible.

I want to write this in love.  I want to find the balance in this.  I want to warn my brothers and sisters about the prosperity message, and more then anything, I want to please God.  

Recently, we have heard of a famous pastor, asking for a huge amount of money, to buy an airplane.  And most of us, were shocked.  And I won’t say this pastors name, because I don’t want to be an accuser of the brethren.

But, when is enough ~ Enough?  I ask this, because I have to look at my own life, and the life of a true Christian, to identify traits, that are in reflection of Christ.  I am a seasoned Christian.  I have been searching and following Christ for a lot of years, and yes in ministry.  In my writings, and serving Him, at a local television ministry, a few years back.

And I have seen, how I actually got caught up in the deceptiveness, of trying to turn ministry into a business.  It failed.  I failed at it.  I saw this years ago….And I am so glad I did!  Let me tell you why.

Because the spirit of greed, can hypnotize anyone, if they are not grounded in the truth, and they make that a priority, instead of sharing the gospel, to save souls!  And in Gods Kingdom, when we seek His true Kingdom, that is the first priority.  Sharing the gospel, to win souls to Christ.  Not to make anybody rich!

Yet, we live in this world, where money is needed.

No doubt about that.  But finding the balance, in ministry, has to be reflected.  And I know in my own life, that there are so many things money can do for me, even now, at this time of my life.  But, when I start to see my attitude change.  Where I get moody, or complaining, or even at a point, where I get cold in my spirit, I stop and count my blessings.

Right now, in our world, we all see, there are Christians who are in the middle east, who are being persecuted, for just being a Christian.  Hated, for loving Jesus Christ.  These are poor people, who would just love to have a safe place to live.  A roof over their heads.  They don’t want to run, and hide, to be safe.

And should we not make comparisons in that way as well, instead of trying to get a better car. then our neighbor?

Look, all I know, is that we all have things to deal with?  I would just be so grateful to God, if I could sell my books.  That I would use the gift and calling God has given me, to help others, find their way.  

But where I could also “earn” a living, from my hard work.  But it is all from the grace of God, and I never want to take what Christ did for me on that cross for granted.  

I would love to move.  I would love, to be in another state, where my soul can see the beauty of Gods creation.  That I would not be bored.  That I would not get cold in spirit.  As well.  Not that I don’t see it here, in Colorado.  But, finding the balance my friend, I pray, we find.  All of us.

How can I be happy, if I am not happy here.  I think of Paul, and how he taught us to be content, where we are.  NOT THAT I SPEAK IN RESPECT OF WANT:  FOR I HAVE LEARNED, IN WHATSOEVER STATE I AM, THEREWITH TO BE CONTENT.  Phillipians 4:11.

And even here, I have to thank God!  Because I am blessed, in so many ways, that I am ashamed to say sometimes, I feel limited.  Or that I want more!  God forgive me!

To be grateful.  To be content in my ministry.  To know God can provide.  But if we lose our sense of what really matters, for souls, for the glory of God, and put our priorities in the prosperity message more, and more.  We hurt ourselves.  And we lose souls for Christ!

Don’t let the devil deceive you, into thinking this is what it is all about.  Its not!  Again, I am thankful to God, for living in America.  But I am praying…

Praying America wakes up!  Before it is too late!  That we turn back to God.  That we see the deceptiveness.  That we use our King James bibles, that is holy and anointed.  That we see the deception even in the Bibles we use, if they are not a King James they are corrupted, because they have been revised, changed, added to, and deleted.

That we seek God, humble, and ask for forgiveness, when we murmur and complain.  That we see there are wolves in sheeps clothing, so that we walk that narrow path.  To please God.

Folks, we need to ALL see this, before it is too late.  Before Christ returns.

Enough is enough…..Please don’t let the prosperity message be your guide.  Its wrong in the sight of God.  Think about our brothers and sisters in other countries, who just want to live.  Think about that for yourself as well.

Blessings and love,  Thank you, Lord Jesus!  Thank you.

Elena Ramirez

Pride will steal your blessings, and I need to write this.

There are so many Christians who are Christians, and believe in Gods word, but when an offence comes in, or a disagreement, what happens, is that pride takes over.

That is one thing, people do not understand, and when they do that, they open the door to the enemy. I have seen it time and time again, and I take it to heart, to know, because this is one thing, that offends God. He does not bless pride.

Why does it steal your blessings?  One reason, because it stops love.  It stops the flow of love, and God is love.

Whenever any of us, stop love, we stop God, from working in our lives.  We are stopping the blessings, and we are stopping forgiveness, and being disobedient.  It automatically brings the enemy into the situation legally.  We are told to give no place to the enemy to submit to God, and then the enemy will flee.

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.  James 4:6-7. 

These are principles, laws, and parameters God has placed in each one of our lives, and no matter how right you are, (I have learned this) that it turns into a stumbling block, that steals your blessings.

No one, would ever purposely, stop God from blessing them, who would be foolish to do that?  But unknowingly, when you have pride, with anybody, you are doing that.  And when you do that, you are using a worldly sense of dealing with something, instead of doing something the way of Gods Kingdom.

Its like a child, who gets mad at someone, and instead of letting the love flow, to be understanding, compassionate, instead one gets a stone wall, of intellectual reasoning.  By being bratty, unresponsive, and snubbing someone.  It shows.  Those kind of tactics were done when we were kids, and you either grow, or you keep doing it like a child.  Who has not learned how to deal with this, and see the way to get out of pride.

Lets look at that more so, because this is the way of the world, in some cases.  Being realistically intellectual in reasoning with one another.  Here as an example, you may be able to relate to this, but say someone tells you, that you have offended them.  Or that something you did, deserves to be looked at, to understand.

They are sad, they are wounded, or they may even just be adamant to say, hey that is wrong.  So what do you do?  You give a reason, you explain maybe even calmly, or with a sarcastic attitude, thats the way it is, and thats why you did what you did.

Instead, of seeing that person, actually has a llegitimate  point.  And instead of you recognizing it, acknowledging it, you may either ignore that person (pride) or just cut them off.  You have forgotten manners, good courtesy, of just even recognizing the problem.  

Stop for a moment, and look that this person, has actually made a point, and for whatever reason, if it is other factors, they need you to see this problem.  Don’t brush them off, don’t snub them, don’t ignore their thought….Let love in, and don’t let pride steal your blessings.

Now, I know every situation is different, but there is something to be said, about the way, we communicate, and the way, we either work it out with or without pride.

Having pride, will not acknowledge its wrong doing.  It will not admit a fault, it will not go that extra step to make a wrong right.  And this my friend, is what I am trying to get you to see.  I am trying to extend grace to you, to see that when you are wrong….

Go to someone, tell them perhaps, you were wrong, in your evaluation, or in the method of handling something.   What you are trying to do, is to continue the flow of love.  (Bringing God into it)  For when you do that, you are letting go of your pride.

You are letting go, of your right to be right, and even if you are right, you are saying.  I love you, this does not mean just because we disagree, that we should be at odds with one another.  You are not hiding the discretion, you are exposing it to love.  

You see, if we saw how God works, and the enemy works, we would be able to stop problems, curses, and even sin.  Love never fails.  Pride will stop love, it will stop your blessings.  Let go of that anger, to be right, or to have the right to be right.  It does you no good.  It needs to be brought to the obedience of Christ.  So His love can continue.

See this my friends, is something to know for pride will really steal your blessings.  And the enemy in his twisted sense of bringing confusion, will bring part truth in any matter, to look like a lie.  Or to bring pride.  Don’t be a part of pride.  Forgive, communicate, and be gracious, in your communications.

We all need to work on this, because it is on-going.  I hope this brought some perspective, so you can get on the right path, and in doing so learning a tool of diplomacy, with compassion, understanding, to stop pride.

Just my thoughts, with love, so hoping that we all can grow.  So   praying, that when differences come, even in my own life, I am praying, that I will not have pride.  You see, I grew up, trying to reason sometimes, and when I saw pride in a loved one, and I was rejected, I knew what it was.

That is the worst feeling, to have, because of someones pride, and when life goes on, and it is not resolved, it brings a curse.  Love could have healed that, but pride got in the way.  Don’t let it get in the way of your life.  Stop it, God can change it.  The following link is one of my popular posts on pride, just click it, and praying it also helps you.  

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

THE DANGER OF MIXING OF SPIRITS, DOCTRINE AND WITH EVIL IN THE BODY OF CHRIST ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez

The body of Christ, should be pure.  We should not be corrupted.  But as an observer, by listening, and seeing, I see how this has happened.  And is happening.  What do we condone, and accept?

There is a mixing of spirits, doctrine, and evil and it is being poured into the body of Christ.  And it is very, very dangerous.  

I see Christians, who think they are saved, and yet, they condone, this kind of behavior, as if it was acceptable to God.  And this is the furthest thing from God, and what He would want for us, His children.

I see Christians, who believe its o.k. to have astrology as a means of guiding them.  I see them going to psychics, and they think it is o.k.

 I see us, as the body of Christ, reading so many different Bible versions, and we are not on the same page. I do not want a Bible that has missing scriptures, or that has actually distorted a holy word.  This again, is why I use only a King James Bible.  Because it has been preserved for over 400 years.

 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.  II Corinthians 2:17. 

I see Christians, who are playing with deceptive spiritual entities, that actually identify and dare them to see who they are as animals, or cause them to imagine who they would be if they could do spiritual things that go totally go against Gods holy word.  And the devil deceives by making it a game….

These things are destructive.  Just this morning, I saw a Christian developer, for churches, ask a question, if you could wave a magic wand, how could that affect the church you attend?  Wow, that one blew me away.  Magic, has no business in a true house of God.  Why even use that kind of analogy?  I would not want that person, doing anything with my church.  

Christian leaders, should not be so passive, or condoning things like this.  And I see it more and more…They are wolves in sheeps clothing.  They are not warning people, they have no fear of God.  And some actually want to introduce doctrine from other religions.  Into the body of Christ.  Wow!  No thank you.  

I turn on my television and I watch Christian pastors and they do not address sin or how it ruins lives!  Why?

So how can the body or members of the church have no fear of God, unless they learn it themselves? Because they are not getting it in truth from a lot of these leaders.

So I do take Gods word to heart here, and I have departed from churches like this.  

Let them alone:  they be blind leaders of the blind.  And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.  Matthew 15:14.     

So  I am seeing so much corruption, so much so, I am just in shock, as I see how so many Christians, really do not have a strong, standard or sense to see the deception.  According to Gods truth.  

Wake up body of Christ, wake up my friends….wake up, and see the deception and turn from it, and warn others.  

I am not trying to nitpick, or judge, but can we not see the deception?  And lets talk about judging for a brief second.  

We are judging.  With discernment, and seeing fruit. Hey, people, say who they are, and you see the fruit.  You know between right and wrong.  According to Gods truth.  And you don’t want that for that person, if you love them.  But we have gotten weak as the body of Christ, and the enemy has blinded even Christians.

The goal, should be to be more like Christ.  Gods word says, He is holy, and calls us to be holy.  How can we do that, if we are entertaining dark things, that are not of God?  We are called to live in this world, but not to be a part of it.

The movie Noah just came out, and I actually see Christians promoting this movie. Which is so sad.  They are leaders and they are telling people its o.k to see it.

Now I did not see it, but from the sources, who have given a testimony of what it represents, I don’t want anything to do with it.  I don’t want to pour that kind of garbage into my spirit.

There were no rock people, and Noah was a kind obedient man, who loved God, and built the Ark.  He did not try to destroy his own family, and the overtones of “magic” again, that they used in the movie to make a point has no place, in a story of God. Where of all places, God is trying to save mankind.  But shows us, what happens, when we are disobedient to Him.  It is not a true account from what my King James Bible says.

There is another movie about Jesus, and from that, they eliminated so much of Gods word from it, that it is not a true Biblical account.  I am aware of the discrepancies, so I don’t want to see it.  And again, I am not trying to nitpick anything.  But, when you know Gods heart, when you know truth, from His holy word, you see.  And I am seeing, how so many are just misled.

We cannot compromise God or His truth, or His ways.

Yes there is good and evil, in this world, and God has in His plan, allowed us to see it.  But, we are to choose the good.  We are to choose, and turn away from the devil.  We are not to do things that hurt us spiritually.  We cannot expect to mix this, that and the other, and have Gods blessings.  In fact they bring curses, and even generational curses.  To the third and fourth generation.  Lord only knows what our ancestors did, but I cling to Christ, and I cling to the truth of my Lord, to avoid these things.  By the blood of Jesus, and as a hedge, it is my protection, that I plead.  

Hollywood, is being used by the devil, to give an illusion, and to distort truth.  But truly it is our own responsibilities, to learn, Gods ways.  Not the devils ways.  II Corinthians 2:11 Lest satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.  

Friends, all I can say, is be careful out there.  Be careful what you entertain.  What you choose to entertain you.  Be careful who you choose as friends.  That spiritual darkness they choose can affect you as well. Be careful what you choose to guide you, or even what you choose to give insight to.  We cannot be naive, concerning spiritual matters.  We cannot as the word says, sit at the Lords table, and yes the devils table.  Read I Corinthians 10:21 from the King James.

We have to see, many are blinded, and corrupted, because they are not seeing Gods truth in spiritual matters.  These things really do have spiritual implications, and cause darkness.

And Yes, I care about your soul.

I care, because Christ died for our sins.  We have to see, that His sacrifice, came at a great cost.  We are extended grace, but doing anything purposely, that deviates from the truth of the gospel, the truth of Gods commandments, and ways, is truly choosing evil, and not taking into consideration Christs love for us.

Be careful friends, be careful.  Your soul is at stake.  Remind yourself how precious your salvation is.  Remind yourself, how good His love is.  Do you really want darkness, instead of light?

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil! (paraphrasing)

True Holy King James word:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil:  that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.  Isaiah 5:20.

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 4:6. 

 I speak this truth in love as a truth seeker, I pray, you seek the truth as well.   Compromise is not His truth.   We cannot be a house divided, and stand.  And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every Kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.  Matthew 12:25.

In Christ and His love,  Just my Thoughts as I pray to bless God this day, and always….

This is my p.s. with this post:

I know sometimes, when I share a word, it is harsh, it may hurt someones feelings, it may get them angry, they may even resent me. I know it. I am sad, that it does happen. But I would rather tell you the truth, as a real friend, then to deny truth. Gods truth. I just know when I stand before God, He will tell me, concerning some, did you tell them my truth? And I hope to say father, I was not ashamed of your gospel. Believe me I know, because I try to use love, but it does not always look like love. Truth can hurt. It is something, I deal with this every day in my ministry. And I truly try to look at my own love walk. I have been judged more then, I want to say, and it hurts. Especially when one is misunderstood. Or when people just want to engage in a battle for the sake of it. But when you know the truth, according to Gods holy word, all you can do is use that as your sense of right and wrong. And growing in Christ, should not make us puffed up, but more humble. Knowing what Christ has delivered us from. So this is why I speak truth. I love you all. And you may not respond to this. But, I do, in Christ. 

 

 

IF CHRIST IS IN YOUR HEART, THEN LOVE SHOULD BE EVIDENT….


This morning, the Lord, woke me up with this message on my heart. And first and foremost, I need to say, this is for me as well, as it may be for anybody else.

It is not meant to point the finger at anyone, or to condemn. If it convicts, to see the truth, then that is a different story, but again, my intention is not to bring this out by my judgement. God is not a respecter of persons. What He expects of one, He expects of us all, if we are to call ourselves Christians.

The thought, my Father, brought to me, is the message of Love…..

For if we are Christians, if we are called in Christ, we are to have as fruit, the evidence of Love. Christ told us, that is how people would know, we were the real deal. That we were Christians, because love would be seen. Because then, He would be seen….

Why is it, that it is not often seen? Why is it, that we may only love, those who love us? Why do we not practice it? daily, or with every opportunity that we get? Why is the love not evident? Why do we holdback?

We need to be aware of this. We need, to make the effort, we need to know, “practice makes perfect.” His ways are perfect, His ways are true. Today, and everyday, we must put LOVE on the forefront of our minds.

With kindness, with compassion, with mercy, putting away any jealousy, any competitiveness. Without judgement. Oh yes, so many times, we do judge. But if we could only look beyond what we see, and know, by the root of whatever, we see, love was not there.

So, we must make up for it. We must be the love, that is missing…
Oh dear one, do you see it?

Today, I want to encourage you, to be friendly, to be kind, loving, sweet, not self thinking, and be giving, even forgiving, silly, and petty offenses. Be compassionate, knowing, that LOVE is the fruit, of our Lord.

Stir up your Love….Practice it, share it, and be a light that shines for Christ. If a mean spirit comes to you, bind it with love. If you are tempted to be evil, and mean, see that God sees you. And surrender this to his love…..We need to make ourselves visible, in love, and to the world. Or how can we minister? How can we show Christ in us?

Read this scripture. Quietly, without any distractions….

Meditate on it slowly, let it by the Holy spirit, whisper to you, and embrace it. Take it, chew it, swallow it…Let it settle in your heart, that this is truth, this is what should be seen. Take this as you would Holy Communion. His body, his blood….

BELOVED, IF GOD SO LOVED US, WE OUGHT ALSO TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME. IF WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, GOD DWELLS IN US, AND HIS LOVE IS PERFECTED IN US. HEREBY KNOW WE THAT WE DWELL IN HIM, AND HE IN US, BECAUSE HE HATH GIVEN US OF HIS SPIRIT. I JOHN 4:11-13

With love, and with the thought, we need to practice love, so it will be made perfect in us.

“Just My Thoughts…..

Father, help me as I seek you and praise you, to walk in Love.  Help me, to be prompted by your holy spirit.  Help me to love, as you do.  I need your help in this every day of my life.  Every moment, I need to be aware of your love, so I can be effective, but I can be an expression of you.  You are my greatest role-model for love, and I know I need help in this.  I sometimes, miss the mark.  But, with you, I can love, and meet the commandment.  To love, God, and to love others…in Jesus name.  Thank you Lord.  Amen

MY MOTHER ~ MEMORIES OF A TUMULTUOUS RELATIONSHIP AND YES LOVE…..



Its morning, and I am thinking about my mom.  My mother, the lady who brought me into this world and gave me life.  And even here, I want to stop and Thank God for her.  But I do so, knowing, there were sins, between a mother, and a daughter.

I don’t want to paint a pretty picture, and portray her, and me, baking cookies, and having tea parties, or pretty illusions, between a mother, and a daughter.

I have to be honest.  It was tumultuous, and there was no peace.  There was never ever a time, where we could just agree, to disagree.  No standard was ever set in this, as far as having rules, or guidelines, to communicate, effectively.  For I was not taught this.

Yet there was love, I did love her, very much.  And I know she did love me.  Though there were times, I don’t think and respectively, I say this, that we did show love to one another.

Sure when I was a little girl, I would always apologize, I would always try to make amends.  And even when I grew up, I was still doing that.  But the sad thing, was when I was old enough, I could see, I was always the one to apologize.  Always…and it did bother me.

But there was no rule to live by.  In the sense, and I am looking back in retrospect, that we did not know how not to murmur and complain.  Nor did we know how, not to make a mountain out of a mole heal.  Together, we did not know how to soothe each other, or bring out the best in each other.  But I was the child.  She was the mother.

My mother, did not have an example of having a mother raise her.  So there in itself, is a lot of the answer, I think.  And my mom, would testify, that my grandmother, had been born and left on some porch, of a Jewish family.  And so her roots, are hard to trace.  And she died at a very young age, when my mother was very small.

So my mother, did not have a strong sense of family, nor a foundation, even in faith, or a sense, of what she could do, because really no one instilled that in her.  She was one of a few brothers and one half sister, and that family, too was broken, by death, of grandma, and grandpa, and just poverty.

My mom, had a very hard life. Even in marrying, growing old, etc. And it was expressed in how she thought, believed, etc.

But she loved me.  She protected me, and always gave to me.  She taught me to pray, she taught me about the Bible.

I wish now, I had not rebelled.  I wish, that I had been able to comfort her, or that she saw and encouraged me in who I could be.  I wish, that communication was not one-sided.  Or where she always had to be victorious.  But she did not have that, so how could she give that to me.  She needed to have that to be in control….

I just wish…..

All I know, is I do cherish the times, when we were able to have a few moments here or there, with a laugh, or a lunch, or whatever we shared, and I do miss her.

It has been 9 years, this January 18th, that she passed.  And the last memories I have are, very, very sad.  So, sad, I need to keep them private.  I sense her and recall her in my mind by my memories.  The sadness, of the loss.  I do grieve, that it was not better.

Yet, again, all I know, is there, was this love.  Love that came from her teaching me to pray.  To God.  My father prayed for me to be born, but she taught me to pray.

She was uncompromising.  Some would call it stubborn.  And that used to bother me, now I appreciate it.  It protected me, so much more, then I will probably ever know.  And yes she did protect me.  She was a good woman.  A clean woman.  A woman, who protected me, by even denying herself, love.  Because she did not want anyone to harm me.  She worked hard.  And provided, as best as she could.  She taught me compassion, love for animals, and those less fortunate then me.  She was love.

I just wish, we could have nipped, the strife, from whatever it was, that got in the way.  That it could have been worked out.  It never did.  We just picked ourselves up, and started from there, but not by acknowledging, the true source of the problem.  The love worked itself back, to some sense of being normal.  But the strife always, always came back.

I suppose it was the devil.  But no more, I learned from that.  And if there is any generational curses, I know they are broken, by the blood of Jesus.  I decree, even here in the name of Jesus, that every generational curse is broken, and my bloodline, is cleansed, and will serve God.  In righteousness, peace, truth, love, and Gods holy spirit.  Holiness, that can only come from the sacrifice of Christ Jesus.  There is power in His blood, that cleanses the sins, of the father, or mother, from generation to generation. If you get anything, out of this tribute to my mother.  Know that!!  The faith, in victory, I have, is because of the blood of Jesus, for my family blood line!!

We do not allow that kind of strife in our home, even now.  I won’t fuel it, and when anyone in our family, disagrees, we agree to disagree, in love.  Not holding grudges, not being touchy, we forgive.  We talk it out. Communication, to see how we can bless each other.  And yes, we pray, we pray about everything, that concerns each other.  Always taking our needs to the throne of God.  Trusting him because He makes a way, in all things.  He is love.

I just want to acknowledge her now, before God, and the world, and just say Thank you mom. I pray, the forgiveness, I pray to God for my part in our relationship, would be evident, and forgiveness, would flow, with blessings.

I love you mom.  I do miss you.  I don’t miss fussing, disagreeing, or fighting.  But I miss you……

I just want the love to be evident…..

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor….

Father, by the blood of Jesus, I honor you, in my prayer.  No longer a prayer warrior of hope, but in confidence, to honor, you, I know it is the blood of Jesus, that has broken, the curse, of strife, and discord.  In my family.  Lord, I lift up my mothers memory, and pray, Father, her soul is at rest.  For I have come to your throne, releasing her, and myself, from that strife, that always would take a hold of us.  Let love, for there was love, let love, be our memory, as mine of hers, and hers of mine.  Let love cover a multitude of sins.  Father, I pray for whoever may be reading this, and I pray, they know, by the blood of Jesus, that you can bring harmony, and love into their home.  That you can change relationships between all members.  Let them continue to try, in love.  But always in praying, applying the blood.  We did not, because we knew not.  Your people perish for lack of knowledge.  But I know now.  Thank you Lord, for the plan you have for my family, by the blood of Jesus.  The enemy cannot defeat that.  And I am grateful to you, my Lord God, for showing me, truth, and love, to set us free.  In Jesus name.  Amen

LOVE IS SPELLED….CHRISTMAS (Part two from “To tree or not to tree”


Christmas, is spelled…C H R I S T M A S…..not  xmas.  I don’t spell it any other way, because I honor, the name of my Lord, being the name of this holiday.  When I take the word Christmas, and I say it, the first part of it is Christ….Of whom, I recognize, is love.  Or the messiah.  The second part “mas” in spanish, means more of, to a greater degree.  So Christmas means “love to me, to the greatest degree.”

So the preponderance, of that word love, (Christ) outweighs, any other thoughts, or discussions, because it comes from God himself, and the word of God.  God is love.  I John 4:7.

For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever, believes in him, would not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16. This is the greatest, gift God could give to us, the world.  Life to me, is abundant, because of who Christ is.  In my life.  I know, that Christ came to give, life, and life abundantly. I can claim that here, and after I am gone, when I die, believing, in everlasting life.  Because I believe Christ came for me, and for all of us who believe, I can have peace on earth, good will toward all people, as I give glory to God.  Luke 2:14.

Peace, knowing who Christ is, that He is love, that giving glory to God, is just natural, when walking in that principle, really does produce fruit, and results in our lives.  So we must want to guard that.  God wants us to be aware, of his love.

But to also know how we can lose our blessings.  For there is an adversary.  And yet, I know there is an enemy, and he comes to kill. steal and destroy.  In any way, he can, he will try to pervert, or kill, or try to distort, what Christ really is….or what Christ stands for.  Or Christmas, for that matter.  He will try to blind the world, so they do not see Christ at Christmas, and they will see a santa claus, or a winterwonderland scene, the devil, will even try to make people think it is a pagan holiday, and for even the religious, to not worship Christ at this time.  He will try to get you offended, or will try in any way, to deceive you, differently, about Christmas, love, or all that is holy….So be aware of traps, and how the enemy, will even use people, you know, and love, or care about.

Recently, I got into a heated debate, and not by choice mind you, by two individuals, I communicated with on Facebook.  Over the meaning of this holiday.  And in their communications, both of them, friends to each other.  One, said they would not celebrate Christmas, for the pagan, affiliation made to this holiday, and the other made a mockery of the date, of December 25th, and that a pagan god was born on that date.  Which really hit a raw nerve.

I realized, I loved those people, but I could not continue to communicate with them, or continue to subject myself, to read, their very, negative, criticisms, and mockery of a holiday, I hold as sacred.  And the holiday, itself, is holy, and sacred to me, because Christ was born, in holiness.  This is biblical. Luke 1:35 AND THE ANGEL ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HER, THE HOLY GHOST SHALL COME UPON THEE, AND THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST SHALL OVERSHADOW THEE, THEREFORE ALSO THAT HOLY THING WHICH SHALL BE BORN OF THEE SHALL BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD.

But their argument, was that some strange pagan god, was born on that date, and thats where they made reference to it.  Whether it is this date of December 25th or not, this date, has been established, to celebrate Christmas.  To celebrate, Christs birth…..

My thoughts, are this, whether, some of the traditions, have been established, as Christmas being a pagan holiday, does not deter me, from seeing, this biblically.  For in Luke, the Bible does tells us the Christmas story.  And even here, I recommend you read it, to your family, and to understand what Christmas means.  So when these people, continued on, with this strange fixation, of Christmas being pagan, commercialized, etc.  I knew, even though, I loved them, and walked in love with them, trying to respect them, I could see, that nothing I would do, would change their mind.  And that I could not make any progress, but Christ can.  So to keep my own peace, I cut the communication off.  Basing it on Titus 3:9.  But avoid, foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law.  For they are unprofitable and vain. And I do pray for them.

The thing is Christ, is the fulfillment of love, because if you recognize what Christ did on the cross, you will also recognize his birth.  If your mature enough, you put aside, the way, the world thinks about Christmas, and you put aside, the attempts from the devil, to manipulate this day and you see it for what it is worth….

Christmas is love….Christ came, to fulfill the greatest love of all, by being born, and becoming a sacrifice, for our sins, to make a way, to be delivered, from evil.  You don’t look at it any other way, but by love.    I see Christmas, through the eyes of a child, even though, I am a mature woman now.  I see it, by holiness, for Mary was given a gift, of the immaculate conception.  I see it, as Gods love, being so great, for each one of us, that he sent Christ, to take the sins of each one of us, as he went to the cross, and then being a holy God, who defeated death, (the devil) he was resurrected.

Dear ones, Easter, is about salvation, but so is Christmas, that in the birth of Christ, we can be  reborn again, to see with hope, that our world, our sins, our defeats, our failures, can be reborn, as we see Christ, as the true Messiah.  That as he was born in holiness, as we go to him, knowing he went to the cross, we can go to the cross as well, and take our sins to him, to heal us.  We can live life in holiness…not because of our feeble attempts, but because of who He is in us.  He is holy.  He was born into holiness, and we can be holy because we see, who He is……This is what we should see, as we look, at what Christmas means….

And our gift, this Christmas, from God, is having a peace, a joy, a love, that surpasses all understanding.  Because by accepting the Christ child, the whole person, of Christ, who also went to the cross, you are accepting Salvation, for your sins.

Your gift to God, in return, is knowing in faith, and thankful, that you want to give love, to God, and to others, because of his gift of love to you.  Your gift, your desire, is to live a life worthy, of what Christ did for you, because you do not take his birth or his death, and resurrection for granted.

What joy, what peace, it brings to our temples,  our bodies, knowing Christ, his love, dwells within each one of us.  If we make him Lord and savior, body, spirit, and soul.  What joy it brings to our homes, our loved ones, others….

So because of that we learn, love is the greatest principle.  The foundation.  To some it is a mystery, and they cannot understand it.  To those of us, who have been delivered from the enemy, and we know, it was Christ that did that, we know it was love.  Gods love.

The message of Christmas is love….giving, for God so loved us, he gave us love….He gave us Christmas….Again the definition….He gave us love, and that so much more, to the greater fulfillment.  He gave us Christ.

I do say Merry Christmas, and yes happy Holidays….but I do not leave Christ out of the equation of this happy holiday.  It is spelled Christmas….and it means love….to the greatest degree of fulfillment.

Just My Thoughts, with his love,

By Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, how great your love is….Thank you, for teaching me, about love, about knowing truth, to set me free, and by actually taking that truth, and bringing it to the obedience of Christ.  By bringing that love, that was bestowed in a manager, so precious, and sweet.  To my heart, and it gives me understanding, of the love, Christ also had, by going to the cross.  Thank you for teaching us your ways…and to spell love….Christmas.  Glory to you, my God.  Peace, to all, and good will, I pray, is in our hearts, as we seek your love. Thank you Father…..In Jesus name, Amen
