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
Have you been rude to someone? A person of God? Maybe it is someone you work with? A neighbor, and here is one, how about somebody here on Facebook or Twitter?
Were you….Snarly, sarcastic, accusatory, argumentative? Maybe you made fun of someone, and their beliefs? Maybe you are jealous? Maybe you gossiped? Maybe you snubbed someone? Maybe you had a chance to stand up for someone, that was the underdog, and you let the opportunity go by, and did not support that someone, in love?
Look we all make mistakes, in relationships. But one thing, I have learned, if you want to get Gods attention…go to that person, and apologize.
Maybe, they don’t even know you spoke against them, or maybe they don’t know you had such harsh feelings toward them. Or had bad intentions toward them. Humble yourself in the sight of God. See this pride thing, will always block blessings. And love will always work, it never fails. God is love.
So go to that person, and admit your fault before them. Try to be friends with someone, you have disliked. Apologize yourself for even being a part of the enemies plan. Because it does cause discord. It does cause division, it causes strife. And sadly it brings curses, and nobody wants that…..
Even if you may be right in some instances. Communication, always brings attention to things, and can resolve issues. And if someone comes to you, be gracious. As well. You see, we all have a responsibility to let love in. We all need to grow.
Being resentful, in the long run, will only hurt you. It is a poison, that poisons the soul. When love, could make amends in the sight of God. I know that I know this works. I have seen God bless me, when I have done this.
Go to that person, and make it right. God will honor your humbleness, and love to go to that person. As much as it may hurt you, you will see the pride go away, and a refreshing will come to you, a blessing from God. Perhaps when you need an answer from God, you will get it.
You see the goal, is always to please God, it is always to be humble before Him. It is always to see the deception of the devil, and make a wrong right, in the sight of God. Be a peacemaker, if anything in your own soul…..
And if you cannot do that, then leave them totally alone, and do not hurt them! I say this as a prayer, and in the name of Jesus! Amen.
BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT WHOSOEVER IS ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER WITHOUT A CAUSE SHALL BE IN DANGER OF THE JUDGMENT: AND WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY TO HIS BROTHER, RACA, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF THE COUNCIL: BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY THOU FOOL, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE. THEREFORE IF THOU BRING THY GIFT TO THE ALTAR, AND THERE REMEMBEREST THAT THY BROTHER HAVE OUGHT AGAINST THEE: LEAVE THERE THY GIFT BEFORE THE ALTAR, AND GO THY WAY, FIRST BE RECONCILED TO THY BROTHER, AND THEN COME AND OFFER THY GIFT. MATTHEW 5:22-24
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….
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
As the year ends, of 2012, I want to declare who I am in Christ.
My relationship with Christ, is based on Gods love. And in fear of God. It is not religion. It is applied, in faith. My faith, comes from Gods word, the King James Bible. For it is Gods true word. It has been preserved for 400 years.
Religion, is rules and regulations, made by men, and organizations. My relationship with Christ is not based on rules, and traditions by men and organizations.
It is not based on any other Bible, then the King James Bible. For other versions, and men, publishers, have taken Gods word, and changed the text, they have changed the content. The meaning. Gods word, says, do not add or change it. This is a reminder of a curse.
I do not judge any one in this, but this is who I am in Christ, and I know who I am in Christ. But more then anything, I know the power of God, by His pure word.
I will not argue, or debate this with anyone. It is not meant to condemn, but I speak this truth from my heart. For it is who I am in Christ.
But I do pray, even by my understanding, and what I share, people would seek Gods true voice. But that is between you and God. Not me.
I tell you this in Gods love. This is my declaration, and I declare it, mindful, and heartful because of Christs sacrifice for me on the cross.
I tell you this in Gods love. For love, must be the main motivation, in all I do. For God is love.
Beloved let us love one another: For love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. I John 4:7
Just my Thoughts, Elena Ramirez
Father, I share who I am in Christ, for your glory. May you be glorified, in who I am, now, and in the New Year. And always. In Jesus name. Amen.
