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.

Have you ever had company over, and gave your “clean” house a thorough cleaning?

I liken this to our souls as well.  You see, when you know company is going to come over, and visit, say for some kind of event, or holiday, you take the extra time, to shine it up, dust, sanitize, and make your home presentable, so your guests, will find it in the best condition.

Recently for Labor Day, we had family over.  We are not one for entertaining, but because it was family, we wanted to bless them, and so we did extra, and more when it came to our cleaning.

Now mind you, we keep a clean house, anyway, we are organized for the most part, and we keep up with daily chores, washing dishes, sanitizing etc.

But I have to admit, dusting, is not one of my priorities.  In fact, I hate to dust.  It still gets done, but it is not done constantly.

But it made me think, about our souls.  I don’t think many of us, want to admit this, but I truly believe, even the best Christian, has to maintain your soul, and clean up some things.

Its called growing, it is called repenting, and it is necessary, for your own growth, to every once in a while do some reflecting, and pray, and ask God if there is something that has to be cleansed?

You see, just as we had guests over, Christ visits our hearts, and souls as well.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Christ to find something in my soul, that would “grieve the Holy Spirit.”

I just know myself that well, when I am feeling off, maybe cold, or indifferent, that I have to run to the throne, and seek my dear Lord.  I need to repent, I need to be humble, I need to cry to Him, and say Lord, I don’t understand.  But help me, help my faith.

I guess this is why I have written my two books, about faith, and curses, because I so want to please God, and I want to help others as well, but I know, how things can affect me, when I am not right with God, or I am off.

There are so many ministries, that do not address, this, in fact, they are into self, or pleasing yourself, and that is so wrong.  We have to make pleasing God the priority.

So you have to do some reflecting, you do have to discipline yourself, you do have to ask God, and “try” to do that housecleaning.  Yes, God will make the difference, and wash you by the blood of Jesus, but you have to check out your robes of righteousness.  Is there a stain, from a thought, a sin, a place, where hopefully you did not let the devil in?

You see, these are our souls.  We have to maintain them.  The Bible tells us to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling.  Oh the fear of God is such a good thing.  It keeps us out of trouble.

Yes we can all use help, in cleaning, as if our own homes.  I would love to have a maid, but since, I don’t I have to do it.  In this photo, my husband and son stepped in, and helped a little.  That was so nice, and I was so touched by their help, I took a photo of them.  God bless them….

A good friend, may help you, counsel you, and even extend grace, when it comes to matters like this.  To help you as well.

But it is our responsibility, to dust ourselves off, and maintain our relationship with Christ.  Friend, don’t take your soul for granted, even if you have accepted Christ.

Yes, you were given a clean garment, a robe of white, when you made Christ your Lord, and savior.  And He is so wonderful, He will give it to anyone, who calls on Him, and believes.  But after that you better watch it, and know for you walk in this earth, and the enemies goal is to deceive you, and to cause you to stumble, and yes fall.

And if you have not friend, accepted Christ I implore you to seek Christ.  Make it right with Him.  This is not about religion, this is about knowing the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  Make it right with Christ.  This is your soul, and someday, when you die, you do not want to have known you had the chance even by reading this, and not making it right with Christ.  Turn to Him, seek Him, repent, and make Him your Lord and savior.  You will never regret it.  I am so glad, He found me, but I made Him my Lord and savior.

I am a firm believer in repenting, daily, I suppose its like my daily dusting.  But I do it because I so want to please father, and like I said, I just know when something is off, and when I do this, my joy, my sense of peace returns.  God knows, when our spiritual houses are clean, and I want Him to see it clean, and acceptable for His presence.

Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts.  Elena Ramirez

My soul cleaveth unto the dust:  quicken Thou me according to Thy word.  I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me:  teach me Thy statutes.  Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works.  My soul melteth for heavings: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word.  Remove from me the way of lying:  and grant me Thy law graciously.  I have chosen the way of truth; thy judgments have I laid before me.  I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame.  I will run the way of thy commandments when Thou shalt enlarge my heart.  Psalm 119:25-32

I love the King James scriptures, and I try to tell you in love, how important it is to use a King James, but there is no way any other version, can speak this truth like this, the way God intended it to be, and the anointing of this scripture speaks volumes.  In fact, this entire chapter, talks about the word, and His law, and His testimonies.  I recommend reading all of Psalms 119 from a King James Bible…it is long, but it so ministers to my heart when I read it concerning Gods word.  Dust off your bible, and read it.  Why would anyone want less?  And to deny yourself Gods food for thought, is starving yourself.  Another thing perhaps, to write about another day…..

Just another Thought…..

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….

DID YOU KNOW GRACE IS STILL A LAW? By Christian author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0090I love how the Holy Spirit speaks to me, to give me understanding. Just out of no-where, but after a prayer…..This is when the Holy Spirit spoke to me, that grace is still a law.

There are mysteries my friend, that only God can reveal, but where they in their simplicity, can be those “Ahha Moments” Where it just makes sense. Where the understanding increases, because one knows Gods ways.

The goal is to get the mind of Christ.  To try, and understand God, in the mystery of who He is.  But you cannot know Him, unless you know His commandments, His word, His law.  I always promote the King James Bible.  For this reason, it is not compromised, it is holy, anointed, and powerful.  Nothing missing.

God does not change, we do.  He is a mighty and powerful God, and to honor Him, is to fear Him, to love Him, to see we are nothing without Him. Life is not life, without Christ. So I take every word and I ponder on it, I chew it, and swallow it, for it is my spiritual food. It becomes a part of me.

Today, as I was pondering on some teachings, that teach grace, which is what we are saved by, but deny the law, I prayed.  I hear so many teachings that go on, and on, about the grace.  But it is almost like they dismiss the law, they denote it, and they give it no balance in their teachings.  Yes, we have grace by Christ.  But there is a balance in there.  Let me ask you this, why did God give us the law to begin with?

Because He saw, mankind, did not have any understanding, or know how to live.  Between right and wrong.  Yet there is no way, we all can keep the law, because we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  But you do not deny it.  You do not deny the law.  It is still there!

So God sent His son, so he would take the law, the penalty for our sin.  Yet, Christ told us, He did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

The Holy spirit, spoke to me, that GRACE IS A LAW. It comes by the blood of Jesus.  It becomes law, a law of grace, when you give your heart to Christ.  Without that law, you are not protected.  You are not extended grace.  You are subject to be sent to hell, without it.

But you need to know the law.  All of God’s law.  To grow, to have a parameter, to test your own spirit.  And there are so many teachings, that actually dismiss the law. And I want you to be aware, when you hear these messages, that they do not give any foundation, or understanding, to how the law would affect us, without grace.  One cannot appreciate grace, unless we know Gods law.

There is the old and new testament.  And yes we are in a new covenant with Christ.  And there are things we do not do, say for example sacrificing anything, because Christ became the sacrifice.  But we are to know, the law.  We are to ponder on it.  This is where our conscious becomes aware, of the condemnation, or the conviction of it.  This is what gives us understanding to grow, and to depart from sin.  And let me just say this.  Condemnation comes from the devil.  Conviction comes from God, so we can change our ways.  And REPENT!

God did not give the law, for nothing, it still is in affect.  It still has principles that are established.  Gods word in a lot of scriptures tells us to love it. Psalms 119, talks about the word, the law, and Gods ways….

I recommend reading it. From the King James Bible.

Let me just say this, without getting into a deep theological debate or conversation. To know Gods law, means you know God. You understand Him. The grace, then is so appreciated, because you know then by Christ you are not under the law. But you have to know the law, to understand God. Yes, even with the fear of God. For when that kicks in as well, you understand, how precious your salvation is. For God holds our lives, and our souls, in His hands.

THE LAW OF THY MOUTH IS BETTER UNTO ME THAN THOUSANDS OF GOLD AND SILVER. THY HANDS HAVE MADE ME AND FASHIONED ME: GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING THAT I MAY LEARN THY COMMANDMENTS. THEY THAT FEAR THEE WILL BE GLAD WHEN THEY SEE ME, BECAUSE I HAVE HOPED IN THY WORD. Psalm 119:72-74.

Just my thoughts, with love, in service to God, and you, by Christ, Elena Ramirez 

Father, teach us your ways, your law, so we can understand how precious our salvation is.  In Jesus name.  I will not dismiss your law, but with all my heart, because of what Christ did, I will honor it, as much as I can, because you have given it to us.  In Jesus name.  Amen

Please Note:  These are my thoughts, they are not up for debate or for argument.  You may take this or leave it, but it is not my intention, to get into an argument over this.  My promptings are from the Holy Spirit, and from the word of God.  For I do love, God’s word, and law.

But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law, for they are unprofitable and vain.  A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.  Titus 3:9-11

THE BEST TIME TO SHOW LOVE IS WHEN SOMEONE DOES NOT AGREE WITH YOU


I used to be so adamant about making my point, and trying to enforce it. No longer do I do that. I have a pretty strong willed personality as it is. But Christs love, teaches me, to be humble, to be sweet, and to express love, especially when someone does not agree with me.

And it just made me think, because we are called to love one another. But what better time, is love really needed? But when you do not agree with someone.

I wish I had that, growing up. To be able to agree, to disagree, even to negotiate, or to resolve issues. I did not have it. So, it did take its toll on some of my relationships….But not anymore.

For, I have learned, through Christ, because we are all on the vine, at different places, that love really has to be front and center of my heart, mind, and spirit. It keeps me balanced. It keeps me strong. It keeps bitterness out of my heart. Petty arguments, are not worth, losing my joy, or losing, the blessings, that love brings. I do realize, that I am not always right. I do realize, even with those, I converse with, as Christians, we do not always see eye to eye. People have different, experiences, different, views, and sometimes, we cannot always come to an agreement, even concerning Gods word. Which is sad.

Now I will be clear here, that I do not compromise, who I am in Christ. Or His word, or truth. But, I can do it, in love.

But, what should remain, evident, in the sight of God, and even that old ugly devil, who wants to steal your blessings, is love, that should be evident. As Christ taught us. And because of who He is. His sacrifice, and demonstration of love, was the greatest example.

No matter what. Hold onto that love, so you can shake off the insults, shake off, the hurt, shake off, what the enemy is trying to do, and that is get you out of love. Because he wants to steal the blessings God has for you.

Its hard, but with practice, and Christ it can be done. I know….Blessings, and much love, Let us walk in love, and not in the flesh, but in the spirit of Christ. In truth….And in everything we do, with believers and non-believers, so Christ can be seen in us. Let love show, especially, when someone does not agree with you.

MY LITTLE CHILDREN, LET US NOT LOVE IN WORD, NEITHER IN TONGUE, BUT IN DEED, AND IN TRUTH. I JOHN 3:18  

A PRAYER OF HOPE, AND HONOR

Father, how I pray, you help me, and the reader to display love, in all situations.  To not be touchy, or moody, to express the love of Christ, in all situations.  Thank you, Lord, In Jesus name.  Amen

HOW TO GET UNDERSTANDING…..


Have you ever tried to communicate with someone, and they are so caught up in what they have to say, that they just don’t hear you? They cannot perceive the message, or the goal of the message, because they may pick up on one thing, and discard the rest of the thought?

I wonder how many times, we do that to God? And how He must shake his head, and just let us be? And He will let us be, for He is a gentleman. He never forces, anything on us. He always gives us choices.

He makes His word, accessible, and available, if we search for Him. He gives us prayer, to have access to Him. But, if in that prayer, and in that time, if we do not stop and listen, how do we expect to get understanding?

First of all, we have to be aware of this. It may very well be a “learned behavior” that we can change, by first of all recognizing, we may have a problem.

Changing your attitude, to recognize, that first of all, try, not to be so defensive, or to always having to spill the beans, in expressing, so to speak….You know God knows, our needs. He knows every thought….but are we listening? We may do that with others, as well.

And even with others, take a deep breath, and be a good listener. Practice makes perfect, and maybe if we are patient with others, maybe we can ourselves, grow, to be more understanding….And understanding of God.

Just my thoughts, with love,

How I long to understand God, and His ways. But I do know, I have to change my own attitude daily. A commitment, to try and listen, and to understand his ways…to please him.

Feel free to share this….maybe it will help bring some understanding, to someone, you are trying to reach…..

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, AND I SHALL KEEP THY LAW, YEAH I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART. PSALMS 119:34

A Prayer of Honor and Hope…

Lord, by your Holy spirit, speak to me.  Give me understanding, and patience.  Help me to hear your voice clearly.  Help me to hear others as well, and to have a spirit, that is patient, to listen.  Observant.  Lord, not to tear up, but to build.  To bring you into the scenario, whatever it may be.  To know what to do.  To have guidance.  To grow….to change, to be the best that I can be, in Christ, and helping others along the way as well.  Lord, help me to have understanding.  I ask this in Jesus name.  Amen

DO YOU LET EVIL IN? (GETTING TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM)


I have been in ministry, for a few years, and I have seen many a prayer request, that has come across my desk.

There are heart felt cries, from people, who are hurting, in financial troubles, who have marriage problems, or they are just miserable, being the person they are.  And so much more….

And it is sometimes hard, from my perspective, to pin point, the problem, especially, since, I do not always know their circumstances, etc.  But, I do know enough of Gods word, and have seen in my own life, the difference, between submitting totally to God and the difference, by just knowing some things about God, but not applying His word, and truth, commandments, as a strong guideline, for living.

Maybe your looking at your own life, and your circumstances, and you are wondering why, things are the way they are.  You may even be a Christian, but your not seeing any victory, in your own life.  Prayers have been said, and you have asked amiss. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it on your lusts.  James 4:3  Something just is not working right.  And you are very discouraged.

The root of the problem is disobedience, not obeying Gods word.  And when people sow disobedience they reap evil, into their lives.  Not always knowing, by being disobedient, they are letting evil in.  Whether they know it or not.  These are principles of God.  Be not deceived:  God is not mocked:  for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the spirit shall of the spirit, reap life everlasting.  Galatians 6:7-8.  

They are letting the devil have a foothold.  The Bible tells us give no place to the devil. Ephesians 4:27.  

Anyway, when I finally, came to the place, where I no longer, wanted just a knowledge of God, but I wanted to know him personally, I had to learn, what he expects.  What he wants.  When you love someone, you want to know them, so you can please them.  Faith pleases God, but faith, is only a part of the equation, trust, is a commitment.  With obedience.  I want to please and obey God, because I love him.

So, when you come to a place, where you totally want to make a commitment to God, to do things his way, you have to know what his word says.  To honor him.   And you make the commitment, in the trust, to be careful, not to let evil in.  You do all that you can to obey God.

It amazes me, but I know many Christians, who claim they are Christians, but they compromise, this in their walk with Christ.  Compromise, is the devils friend, but God, does not compromise.

He does not change, He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.  Hebrews 13:8.

He is holy.  For I am the Lord your God; ye shall therefore santify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy;  neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping that creepeth upon the earth.  Leviticus 11:44.  The goal, as a Christian is to also be Holy. To live life holy.

And again, because I cannot judge anyone in this, but I know Gods word, and I am seeing what works for me, I ask…Are you letting evil in?

And this may not be in a big thing, but it may be even in a small thing, that may not even, seem like it would make a difference, but it does.  The Bible talks about the little foxes steal the vines.  Are you compromising, who you are in Christ, by little things?

And this is not a one time thing, this is a daily thing.  That one has to be aware of, and to be very careful, to not let evil in.  It is, a continual process, and a continual sense, to depart from evil.  For evil, will try to present itself here, there or anywhere.  God can move you away from it, like the Lords prayer states…Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  But you have your part in it!

And you sometimes, just have to look at the root of what you are doing, in your daily life….And this is such a big subject to cover, but in some of these examples, that I list, are you compromising, and letting evil in?  For example…

1.  Do you have unforgiveness?

2.  Do you gossip and hate?

3.  Do you only love those who love you, and you do not love others, because of race, or their status in life, etc?

4.  Do you play with horoscopes, consult psychics, etc.?

5.  Do you dabble in the occult?

6.  Do you know what Gods word says, but you do what you want anyway?

7.  Have you stopped praying?

8.  Do you read your Bible?  And take it to heart?

9.    Do you believe its o.k. to be in adultery?

10.  Have you accepted Christ, but backslid?

11.  Do you give, in the name of the Lord?

12.  Do you really, know in the heart of your hearts, that God is real?

13.  Do you have relationships, friendships, that are not holy?  That are a bad influence on you?

14.  Do you sneak, steal, or borrow, even little things?

15.  Is there anything you are making an idol, and it takes precedence over your relationship with God?

16.  Do you have pride?  And no one can tell you Gods truth, because you are not humble and you think your right?

17.  What kind of movies, and books do you read?  Are you letting evil images, into your mind, your soul?

Any of these things, that I have written, can stop your blessings, and they can be a place, where you may let the enemy in.  No one is perfect, but we have an obligation, as Christians to renew our mind, and to get to the root of the problem, so life can be better, so we can have protection.  But you do have to see the difference between good and evil.  And you need to see it from the perspective of Gods word.

For in this confused world we live in, many things that are evil, are called good, and vice a versa….Isaiah 5:20 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!  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight.  

So,  an important thought as well, but are you doing any of these things, compromising, and could you also be placing yourself, to reap eternal damnation?  What if you died tomorrow?  No one is promised tomorrow?  And if we do not try to get right, with God in fear of him, to turn from evil, then we are playing with our salvation, and our eternal future.  (If you want to get right with God, repent, and say the Prayer of Salvation, I have listed below.)

The blood of Jesus, was shed on the cross, so we can have that protection.  But you have your part to do, and you have to apply Gods truth, his word, and the blood of Jesus, to have that coverage.  I praise God, for my Salvation, but it is only by Christ, that delivers anyone from evil.

Some things are even caused from generational curses….Which makes it more difficult, but this is what the word of God says, that he will visit them with a curse, even from the fourth generation.  (Read Exodus 34:7)

So what can you do?  You turn to God!

The solution is always Christ.  The solution, is always by seeking God, and his principles, and by obeying him.  The solution, is in prayer, and heartfelt, repentance. But if you do none of these things, anyway, and just compromising….you are letting evil into your home, your life, your family, and even your finances.  Let God stop that enemy at the door!

You have to study yourself, and if you know what the problem is, take it to Christ.  If you do not know where you are going wrong, I recommend, even writing a journal.  But don’t stop trying….Whom the Lord loves, he corrects.  Asking God for help, and asking him, to break curses, will turn it around.  Get to the root of the problem, and obey God. You can over come evil with good, with God.  Romans 12;21  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.  

Praise him, and let his holy presence, take precedence in your life, and in your home. Depart from any appearance of evil.  The Holy spirit, will convict you, but you have to be aware of it.  Not everything goes, when your a Christian.  And God blesses without sorrow.  Get to the root of it, and see the difference.  Do not let evil in!  Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye being rooted and grounded in love.  

Just my thoughts, with Love.   Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor to pray….

Father, I come to your throne humbly, I ask for forgiveness, I ask for guidance.  I repent of my disobedience.  I know there are certain things, I should not do.  Show me where I have erred, but help me.  I am not always aware of my sins.  Those that I do know of I know, needs your help.  Those that I do not know about, show me in your word.  Forgive me Lord, I submit to you.  I resist your enemy, and I plead the blood of Jesus.  I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior, and want to do things that are right in your sight.  I recognize, the great sacrifice of Christ, and I thank you, by his blood, my sins, can be covered, so I can stand before you, in robes of righteousness.  In Jesus name.  Amen
