GREED AND OTHER REASONS WHY MONEY IS CURSED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

Does anybody ever notice, I don’t ask for money concerning my ministry?  Let me tell you why.  And let me share some things, I have learned about those that are greedy, and those that cut corners, those that cheat, and those that curse themselves.  Concerning money.

I don’t ask anybody for money.  In fact, I don’t even like writing about it.  But, I feel the prompting from the Lord, so I must obey.

But in ministry, I don’t ask for a penny.  I don’t ask, because I don’t want the message to be confused with dollars.  I don’t want to corrupt, a word from God, because I am not looking to be compensated.  By anybody.  

Now, I have to be careful with that, because I do ask God to bless me, but I want to be blessed, not cursed, by His ways, and not by my own desires.  So, I do this, without any pretense.  Money is not my goal.  His Kingdom is my goal.  I seek His Kingdom and righteousness, and I know the principle tells me all things will be added.  Please note:  I underlined all.  

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.  MATTHEW 6:13.  KJV.  

Oh believe me, when I tell you, when I first started out in ministry, yes, money was my goal.  Why?  Because I saw all these high profile ministries making money, and in the name of the Lord.  I thought, that was correct.  I thought, that was normal.  But God showed me.  

He showed me, the difference.  I began seeing, chinks in their armor.  I began seeing the motive, in them asking for money.  I began seeing, that money sent to many of these ministries, went straight into that pastors pocket.  I began seeing, that many of them would use gimmicks, to get people to send money, and they would take scriptures, and try to twist those scriptures, to get that goal.

They did not do this in truth.  And because they did not, I will not follow them or even listen to them.  For many reasons, including the Bibles they used are corrupt.  I don’t want their anointing of half lies, and half truth, affecting my money.  Or any of my blessings, because they are cursing themselves.  

I Peter 5:2 KJV.

FEED THE FLOCK OF GOD WHICH IS AMONG YOU, TAKING THE OVERSIGHT THEREOF, NOT BY CONSTRAINT BUT WILlINGLY; NOT FOR FILTHY LUCRE, BUT OF A READY MIND.   

It turned me off. 

Yet, I knew God gave me a gift in my writing.  A responsibility.  And I will be honest, I have not seen a great financial return in that.  But thats o.k.  I guess, I am just at a point, where I just want to serve God.  And if someone gets something out of what I write, well glory to God.  

So I take the oversight, willingly.  Because I know, God does reward me, even on earth.  But more when I stand before Him.  Because truth, His truth, KJV truth,  is always my goal.  The message of repenting, and salvation, always has to be front and center with me, including what Bible to use.  And that being the King James.  And I know it, and most of my readers know this as well.  About me. 

If someone wants to give me money, fine, I will not turn that down.  But I don’t ask.

Anyway, my King James bible, tells me, money answers all things.  

Ecclesiastes 10:19  

A FEAST IS MADE FOR LAUGHTER, AND WINE MAKETH MERRY:  BUT MONEY ANSWERETH ALL THINGS.  KJV. 

It answers all things.  But who owns the earth, and the fullness thereof?  That is God, almighty!   And so when I pray, and I pray, with the right heart, I know He can answer ALL things.  If I am seeking His Kingdom, if I am seeking His righteousness.  

So what I have observed, in many things, in my lifetime.  Is that greed is rampant.  People, hustle people, for money.  They overcharge.  They steal.  They mislead.  They give a false sense of service, when all they want is your money.  Its crazy.  Even in ministry. 

Many hold onto a penny, like it was the most important thing.  And make it the priority in life, then what God thinks.  

To me, these things can bring curses.  Scripture tells us, we are to give ten percent.  But I tell you, I am careful who I give it to.  When I give it.  Because I used to give it blindly, and I actually have regrets of giving large sums of money to ministries, that were not in the truth.  

And it also tells us, in Malachi, that if we give, God will rebuke the devourer.  What devourers peoples money?  What do they use it for?  Is it drugs?  Sex?  Sin?  Some would be surprised.  Including me.  But, as a steward, I truly believe we need to see what we use our money for.  

And how we use it.  We need wisdom, when it comes to money.  Myself, included.  We need to have the mind set, to seek God, and His Kingdom, in these matters, and how we get it, what we do with it, and what is our motivation, in all matters.  

Scripture tells us money, is the root of ALL evil.  

I Timothy 6:10  

FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL: WHICH WHILE SOME COVETED AFTER, THEY HAVE ERRED FROM THE FAITH, AND PIERCED THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS.  KJV.  

So how do you find the balance in all of this?  Yes you need money.  And it will answer your problems.  But I truly believe if you are cheating someone, or coveting money only, making it the priority, and not God, your hurting yourself.  You are piercing yourself, with many sorrows.  It scares me.  

In fear of God.   Look, I just sense, God wants us to see our motives when it comes to that.  He wants us to seek Him.  Seek His face, not His hand.  And “religion” (rules, regulations, traditions, made by men and groups) well they, can really distort that.

No wonder, so many are turned off by ministries.  Because many are not in the truth, and all they see, is someone, asking for money, and the message, is about getting you to want to be blessed as well.  

But they leave out the most important thing.  Salvation. They leave out repentance, and even on a daily schedule. Because people do go back to their sins.  They leave out, how we must make God the priority in everything.  Not because of what He can give, but because He is God almighty.  

Look at these ministries folks.  See their fruit.  We are told, we will know them by their fruit.  Look at the Bibles they use!  Are they using corrupted, counterfeit bibles?  Look, and see where your own heart is concerning money.  Are you willing to trade in your blessings, just to short change someone at War-mart?  And call that a blessing, because they gave you more change.  

We have to be careful.  So, very, careful.  The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, and that is included in your finances.  If our hearts are not right with God, we are opened to this.  

I just pray some of my thoughts, will have you look and see your own situation.  Because more then anything, we should be seeking the Kingdom of God, including in our own finances.  You don’t want the curse.  You want the blessing.  

And anything without God in it is a curse.  Please see this.  And share it, as well.  Do the work of a disciple, who brings truth.  Not lies.  Not with motives that deceives.

I have been thinking about hope lately.  It makes you want to live for that happiness, you get from that thing.  So I just keep adding on to the list, of the things I still hope for…..

Hope is a wonderful thing.  It encourages you, it inspires you, it motivates you, to even get up, and just live your life.  Without hope, life can be hard.  It can be very discouraging, to even try.

When I first started in my ministry, and I began writing.  I began writing Prayers of Hope.  Or a Message of Hope.  I just wanted to inspire someone, because I know God.  And so I would write poems, and different messages, with a prayer, but always with the foundation of scripture to give that true hope.  Because to be honest, Gods word, always has given me hope.  These are seeds I have planted.  

I have always hoped in God.  And as I continue even writing here, I pray you have hope.  And more then anything in God.  

I have hoped to fulfill many things in my life, and I find even at this place in my life.  I have had hope in doing things, but they did not always bear fruit.  

When I was a young woman, I loved to sing.  And in fact, I pursued that for a while.  I even made a 45 record, with my own money, and hired my friends who were musicians, and a recording studio to make the tape.  Then I paid for the records to be manufactured.  I have quite a few left.  But, I had pursued this because I wanted a dream to come true, I had “hope” in it.  

Well, long story short, that never worked out.  And to be honest, I did not like the lifestyle of being in bars, to be heard.  So there went that hope.  No one discovered me, and no one cared, if I sang or not.  So I gave up my hope.

For many years, I worked in the business corporate world.  I learned computers, I learned business, and it gave me an opportunity, to develop skills.  Skills I later applied to my writing, and learning of computers.  But I never had hope in working in the corporate world.

When I got married, I worked for a while.  But it was such a hardship, on our son, who needed me, to take care of him.  So I quit working.  No one can take better care of your child then you.  But I still had hope.  

It has been tough, I have not worked for over 26 years about.  But I began pursuing my writing for the Lord.  I felt, like it was my calling.  To bring truth, to inspire others, with Gods word, to have hope.  In writing. In being an author.  But an author, who has not seen a profit.  

Sometimes, when I look back, I see the progress in my own life.  How I have grown in Gods word, how it ministers to me, and it gives me hope.  In many ways, nothing has changed.  I have written two books, in paper, as books to hold, and one electronically.  But no one has seen my potential.  No one, has tried to help me.  No one has used their knowledge, to help me.  So my hope in people has dwindled, in many ways.  

I still have hope that God will open a door for me, but if he does not, I just try to be grateful for what I have.  And I believe I have a lot.

Family is so important.  Love, unity, and just understanding of who God is, always gives me hope.

Not everybody, understands my mission, or my desire, and for those that do, I so appreciate any kind of help, or referrals I get in my ministry.

But as I conclude here, I just want you to see, and be careful that if you need hope, you can find it in God.  Be careful, of people who may even be well intending people, but who may not see your vision, or see your hope in accomplishing something.  

They can steal that from you…..  Don’t let them!  Don’t let the devil interfere with your hope.  When people steal others hopes, by discouraging someone, the devil is in that.  

Sometimes, all a person has, is hope.  Hope to do something great, or hope to build something, or accomplish a task.  And when people do not support one another, it is sad, that it makes one feel worthless.  

I have fought those feelings, and stayed on course, but my hope is in God not in people.

I have always tried to instill that in my son.  To have hope.  To see his potential.  To be careful not to dash his hopes and dreams.  To remind him, he can do anything through Christ.  You see, I did not have that growing up, that encouragement.  But I try to give it to my son.  Even now.

So, I want to emphasize to you how important it is to have hope.  And to hold onto that dream.  To go for it, even if you feel old.  Even if you have no money.  Even if doors do not open.  Even if everyone says, it won’t happen.  I think of the Man of La Mancha, his story so inspired me.  To dream the impossible dream……

Sometimes, my hopes and dreams help me live.  As I live for God.  I pray, my dreams still come true.  They may or may not.  But I will not let go of dreaming, that some day, I will be a success in the sight of God and others.  That my hard work, paid off, maybe I will see it on earth, but I pray I see it in heaven.

But I will not let anyone steal my hope.  I hold onto it with all my might.  And draw strength from God in prayer, in His holy promises.  In my own ability and gift and callings.  I hold onto my hopes.  There are so many.  I pray they bear fruit.  To give God glory.  As long as God gives me breath, I will hope in the Lord.  

Here is a key, of hope, I share with you.  I wrote it a few days ago.  But when I did, I felt Gods sweet inspiration, and that just did something to my own hope.  

The key to hope? Inspiration.
Give it, and receive it, you see the beauty of it. It will stimulate you, prompt you, motivate you, and give you a desire.
If that desire is to give God glory, you have also inspired God.

AND NOW LORD, WHAT WAIT I FOR? MY HOPE IS IN THEE….
PSALM 39:7

TWO REASONS WHY PRAYER MAY NOT BE ANSWERED

Sometimes hope will flee. You have prayed, you don’t understand….

Scripture tells us, if we have iniquity in our hearts God will not hear us. Read King James Psalms 66:18 King James only….

Sometimes, we have to see, what do we embrace, what do we accept, what do we see, as harmless, yet, may be a spiritual entity, that God does not accept. REPENTANCE IS NEEDED.

Then, there is praise, and some people forget, the past, of sins, or the forgiveness they have received. How do your express your gratitude? Do you just go on, or do you give praise, every day of your life, to God as a testimony?

See we have to see…

We overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony. Remember scripture says, do not give place to the enemy. But do you do that, do you give place to the enemy…. by not saying anything, that ushers the praises of God, for you to have a front and center seat at the throne of God?

Hmmmmm. Something for all of us to think about? Please share this.  And sign up for the blog.  You may just help someone get an answer to prayer….  Then God will bless you.

And I will just add. Praises to God my father, with thanks! Even with daily repentance, as I humble myself before you Lord. For the sacrifice of Christ! Thank you Lord, for my salvation….♥

AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:11 KING JAMES ONLY.

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.

WHERE NO COUNSEL IS, THE PEOPLE FALL, BUT IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELORS THERE IS SAFETY.  Proverbs 11:14 

Sometimes, God gives us warnings, that we are headed in the wrong direction, and we could fall.  And I think common sense, would tell us to heed those warnings, so you could avoid a fall.  I want to counsel you here, so you can be safe.  And perhaps avoid a fall, physically or spiritually.  We are called to expose the darkness.  And that’s what I am doing.

Falling, could be spiritually or physically, and even as I write this, I plead the blood of Jesus, for protection.  You see, when you understand Gods principles, and you understand His truths, and ways, from His holy word, you want to avoid a fall.   You don’t want the consequences, of a fall.  You don’t want the hardship, the pain, the sorrow from a fall.  

And yes, this can be a metaphor.  As you look at this picture. But symbolically, when you look at this sign, you might be able to comprehend, and avoid a fall.  And I believe God brought it to my attention as I was driving.  In fact, this sign was in the neighborhood where my uncle used to live, after he died, and He had served God.  So to me, it was a message, that I saw the urgency to share, to warn someone that a fall could be ahead.  

This is why I am writing this.  Because I believe, and know, Gods ways are not mocked.  And you reap what you sow.  So, looking at this, and understanding the principle of something, that goes against Gods word, one must know that this is one who could receive a curse, in that fall.  And who wants that?  No one.

There are many things, that can contribute to us falling.  And really without knowledge of Gods word, one can be headed for a fall.  God has taught me His word, throughout my life, and from my King James Bible, that I use, totally for its anointing and holiness, I will not trust another.  This is one way, I avoid a fall.

Any other Bible to me is corrupted, as meanings change, the holiness, and anointing is gone.  And with that said, I recommend using a King James.  But now as the season is changing, and we are in the middle of October, I want to counsel you, and advise you to avoid the fall of Halloween.

Halloween is one of those holidays, where people, do not have the concept and understanding that it is evil.  That it stems from hell.  That it gives place to the devil.  That it does not honor God.  They think its o.k. to dress up, and they really don’t think they are giving place to the devil, or doing anything bad.  But just in the association of this evil holiday, they are.  And this can lead to more.  I know, I used to dress up, and even as a kid trick or treated.  For candy.  But I am so glad, I learned that this is wrong, and I repented.  I did not know it offended God, but it does.

Did you know we are told, in Gods holy word, that we cannot eat from the Lords table, and the table of devils?

BUT I SAY, THAT THE THINGS WHICH GENTILES SACRIFICE THEY SACRIFICE TO DEVILS, AND NOT TO GOD:  AND I WOULD NOT THAT YE SHOULD HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH DEVILS.  YE CANNOT DRINK THE CUP OF THE LORD, AND THE CUP OF DEVILS:  YE CANNOT BE PARTAKERS OF THE LORDS TABLE, AND OF THE TABLE OF DEVILS.  I Corinthians 10-20-21.

Have you taken Holy Communion with Christ?  As He has told us to do it in remembrance of Him?  Then if you have, you know, He calls us to holiness.  He calls us to a more excellent way with Him.  He says be Holy, for He is holy.  This means you have eaten from the table of the Lord.  He is the bread of life, and you don’t want mold on the spiritual food you eat.  

So no, one cannot eat from the table of the Lord, and the table with the devil.  So in remembrance of him, don’t eat that candy, nor your kids.  Nor dress up, nor celebrate it.  

In fact, I feel so strong about this in my spirit, I won’t even serve candy.  I don’t want to address this holiday in any way.  I won’t decorate my home, to celebrate it.  Its evil to me.  And the history of it shows this, and what is done on this day.  No, I want no association with it.  And I did repent for being naive. 

See what you want to show God, is that you want your life to reflect honor to Him.  That you want to be holy. That you want to please Him.  If our hearts are not right to want to fear him, and please Him.  Yes we can fall.  

In fact, I would not even attend a church, that has that as an alternative.  Because it is still promoting the holiday.  It still promotes dressing up, and serving from the devils table.  This is how we can avoid a fall.

And in so many areas of our life friends, we need to heed Gods word.  Yes, it takes knowledge, of Gods Holy word.  It takes understanding to know what offends God, so we do not do these things like pagans, or those that are lost.  We have to seek God, we do reap what we sow, and you do not want to fall in these things.  They bring curses.  This is why I wrote my last e-book.  (See information in photo for references) 

Friend, its up to you.  The choices are always yours.  God is a gentleman, He does not make us do anything.  But if we love Him, we choose His ways.  We choose to try and make the attempt to live our lives, in the way, He intended.  No the world, will not understand your choice, to do things His way.  You may even get static from those who do not see the evil in this Holiday.  But if you love God, you want to avoid a fall.  You want to fear Him, and know the consequences of your choices can cause a fall.  

Compromise, is disobedience in the sight of God.  

This is just one example, but we always have to be so careful.  And it really begins with repentance.  For you see, we all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, we can be deceived, but you don’t want that, so repenting, and being aware of what Gods word says can avoid a fall.  This is just written, so maybe you can see it, and get on a path, that truly gives honor to Christ, for He is the way, the truth and the life.  John 14:6.

Blessings, and praying my words will help you avoid a fall.  More then anything the Holy words from Father, to instruct you.  I am just the messenger, I am just wanting to help.  But He is the one, who will hold you up.  He is the one that will speak by the Holy spirit, and give you discernment.  

And for the record, I plead the blood of Jesus, for myself, my family, and loved ones, and pray we avoid any falling ourselves. Spiritually or physically. To give glory to God.  To bless God, so He can hold us up.  And I really believe pleasing God, will hold me up, to avoid a fall.  He is God….

He deserves obedience in this, even if it may seem like a small thing to do.  He is so gracious, but He is not mocked.  And someday, when we stand before Him, let it be said, by avoiding Halloween, the record shows you avoided a fall.  I pray so…..

I just know, we all would want the blessings and not the curses.  Obedience to God brings blessings.  Disobedience brings curses.

So…That if we could avoid a fall, we would listen, I do pray you listen.

The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.  Proverbs 10:8.  

 Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

 

 

LIFE WITHOUT GOD IS NOT LIFE



AND THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND, AND WITH ALL THY STRENGTH, THIS IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT.  

MARK 12:30

Many, wonder, and marvel at who I am.  Why I am so consumed, to talk about God.  Why, everything, about me, is always centered on God.  I have heard it so many times, from others, and even in conversation.  “Gee, why does she talk about God all the time?”

Maybe, because He just is, my favorite subject.  He is life, and He gives me life.  For He is the way, the truth, and Life.  John 14:6  And there really is no other way to the Father.  Others may debate this.  But they don’t know.

I do know this, with every ounce of my being.  For I cannot stop, and not see God, in every single one of my blessings. In His plan of salvation, that I have accepted, in His creation, in my family, in my life, in the changes, in the Hope, in the healings, and so much more…..He is love.  And He gives me love, and life.

Thats just who I am.  I don’t know all the reasons why.  I cannot pinpoint all of this specifically….As I don’t know all who God is.  Yet, what I do know, has taught me, there is a God.  Every time, I have needed Him He has been there, and helped me.  Life is hard, no one will argue about that.  But, I cannot see myself living without Him.  Without giving all of my all, and all, to talk about Him, to share Him, with others.  To acknowledge Him, in my life, and remind others, of who He is….in my own little way.

Yes, I am consumed with and about God.  I want to be careful, not to offend Him.  This is a relationship I have, not a religion.  I want to obey Him.  I know myself, well enough, when I see, I am not right with Him.  I have seen my heart, being rebellious, and wanting to do things my way.  And I have seen the results of that.  I have reaped, what I have sown, when I did not do things Gods way.  I see, the loneliness, the heartache, the desperation, without Him.  I see, I was my own worst enemy, when I did not let God in, or I denied Him.  For I could not see, when I was in my darkness.  But I thought, in my foolishness, without Him, I could.  How wrong I was….And thats when I realized, the devil, blinds people, to think, they can live without God.  By denying Him.  JOHN 12:40 HE HATH BLINDED THEIR EYES, AND HARDENED THEIR HEART:  THAT THEY SHOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES, NOR UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART, AND BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD HEAL THEM.  

I did not think, I was denying God, when I wanted to do things my way, but I was.  It is a matter of choice.  It always is.  For when one chooses, to believe what they want, when knowing their can be an alternative, in God, that is a choice, that I would not recommend.

For life to me, is life, with God.  For He is the greatest force.  He is after all, the creator of Heaven and Earth.  He created you, and me, for His  purposes.  To have a relationship with Him.  And all He wants, I have learned, even from the mistakes of Adam, and Eve, is that He wants us to believe Him.  He wants us to search for Him, and take Him, at His word, and He who gave us life, will give us life abundantly, as Christ said.

How sad, it is that people, do not take Him at His word.  That they just go on about in their existence, and that is what I call it, for to me, a harsher word, would be “death’ because when you do not have God in your life, when one does not have the one who created them, they are merely existing.  And that is spiritual death, when one does not acknowledge, or draw close to the one, who can make a persons life, full, and complete. Totally, in life, purposeful, just because of who He is, in their life.

He has done every thing for us, to prove this love, this greatest, of greatest forces, by even the example of the cross.  I have learned, and I know, in my heart of hearts, that if He did not love us, we would be sealed, even in the sins, of the curse of Adam and Eve.  If He had not made a way.

For you see, the disobedience, was from eating of the tree, of Good and evil.  The tree of life.  God after, Adam and Eve, sinned, and disobeyed God, after being deceived by the devil, the serpent, God almighty, cast them from the garden, and put a sword, and a cherub to protect it.  He protected us from the sin.  From the curse.  For it was originally meant to be a covenant with God.  Read Genesis.

But because of who He is, in His love, and in the life, He intended for us.  He knew, if a way, would not have been made, there would have been no hope for us.  He knew, by the covenant, that the curse of sin, would be ours, if He did not implement, a new plan.  That plan, that new covenant, is Jesus Christ.  Christ, told us He is the way, the truth, and the life.  He told us the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  But He came, that we may have life, and life abundantly.  John 10:10

Dear one, I hold onto that, with every ounce of my being.  I press into that, I never want to get into sloppy agape.  Sloppy love, a sloppy attitude about my salvation.  The cost of Christs life was too high, it came at a great, great sacrifice.  Yet, our saviors love, is so great He did go to the cross for us.  He did, as the son of God, obeyed God, for us.

I marvel at some religions, they sacrifice themselves, or others, but they do not grasp, and take hold of what God did for us through Christ.  He became the sacrifice.  It is a gift, that God has given each one of us.  If we have any wisdom, we will take that gift, we will cherish it, and we will press into the one, who has given us this gift.  But how can one take it, without really the fear of God?  For the fear of God, is the beginning of wisdom.  Fear of God, is healthy, I believe.  It keeps you away, from tampering with or playing with evil.

Yes, I suppose to some, I am radical, I am a Holy roller, I am eccentric.  To some I am peculiar.  The word of God says, His people are peculiar people.  BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE;  THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HATH CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT.  I PETER 2:9

I am so honored to be of royalty.  And I do Praise God, I thank Him.  I worship Him, because He did bring me out of darkness.  Whatever name you may want to call me, it does not bother me.  For you see, I once was lost, not just a little lost, but very lost, and the one who found me, was Jesus Christ.  He called me by name.  (read my testimony in the posts above)

I just know, my life, truly began when he found me, but my responsibility, is to be as close to Him, as I can be.  I must give it my all and all.  With every bit of strength, I must seek, and abide close to the Lord.  To try and obey, to try, and live life in love, and holiness.  Because of who He is.  Because with Him, all things are possible.  ALL THINGS!!!

I realized, at one point, that I could not just have a head knowledge of God.  But I had to do everything, in my own power, to walk with Him.  To give it my all and all.  Cherishing this life.  To read His word, to pray, to acknowledge Him, in all my ways.  It is not a private thing, but an expression of who I am in Him, because I will always, acknowledge Him, as my Holy father.  Who saved me, found me, and gave me life, and life abundantly.

Did you know God hides?  Isaiah 45:15.  He quietly watches all of us.  He by His Holy spirit, knows the hearts and intentions of all of us.  Not one thing is too hard for Him.  But we are to pray to Him.  We are to converse with Him.  We are to take him at His word.  We are to try and obey Him.  Aware of the consequences of sin.  He will take that curse, but we must try.  For only by the blood of Jesus, is the curse removed.  But it is our responsibility, to try and obey, to try and live a life worthy of all He has done.

This honors Him.  He does hide, and all He wants is for us to seek Him.  All He wants is to be believed.  All He wants is for us to press in and search for him, with all our hearts.  To prove we love him.  That is our responsibility.  Nobody else, can have the relationship for you, but by Jesus Christ.  Thats why it is so important, to give it your all.  To try….

Yes to me, life without God is not life.  I would call it death.  But, you call it whatever it is, to you.  For you see, I was there, I know the difference.  And I will never let go of Christ.  For He is my life.

It is all of our responsibility, to press into who He is.  He is a gentleman.  He never forces us to do anything.  But when I stand before Him, I do not want to see in the book of life, that I was ashamed of Him, or that I did not try to tell others who He was.  I have so much to do, and I also am a lady in the sense, that I may share who I am in Christ, but I never shove it down any ones throat.  But I cannot deny who I am in Him.  Even if others do not believe.  I am not perfect at sharing my faith.  There are times when I do not say anything to anyone.

But if the Holy spirit, gives me the “go-ahead” then I do try.  So, even here, I write it.  I try to articulate it, to inspire others, because this life, is too great a gift, that He has given me, to not share it.  For Christ wants all to be saved, all to know life, in Him.

All I know, is that I know, I have a responsibility, to give it my all, and all.  Thats life, living to the fullest, because of who He is.  In my life…..He is love.  And He taught me love.  The greatest of love……

Life without God, is NOT Life.

Just my thoughts, with love,

Elena Ramirez

Father, you, who knows the heart, knows everything.  How I long to be closer to you.  How I long to avoid, the sins that entrap people, and bring curses.  How I long, Lord, just to sit at your feet.  Resting.  Being in your presence.  Hearing your voice.  Enjoying your laughter, and joy.  I admit, sometimes, I am so impulsive.  I admit, I used to rationalize, from an intellectual level.  Not by my spirit.  That is your truth, as I worship you.   I admit, sometimes, I can be so fidgety, it can be just a chore to discipline myself, to be obedient to pray, to read the word, to seek you.  Yet when I do, and I am in your presence, the rewards are so great.  Life is not life without you Father.  Life holds no true meaning to me, without knowing you or seeking you.  You comfort me, when I need a friend.  You comfort me, and give me a better understanding of who I truly can be with you.  I worship you in spirit and truth Father.  Your truth.  Not even mine.  For you are the Lord, who hides himself.  But I pray you would manifest yourself to me, to the body of Christ, to the lost, and even our enemies.  For truly the fear of you, is the beginning of wisdom.  You are not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  Yet you give us grace.  Time, to make things right with  you.  In this moment, I pray, even for the person, that would read this.  That they would realize, truly “Life without you dear Father, is not Life.”   Thank you, for everything, in Jesus name.  Amen

PROSPERITY PASTORS QUIT PREACHING PROSPERITY~PREACH THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST


Warning and some thoughts:  This post, is the hardest thing, I have had to write lately.  I have been in ministry for over 20 years.  On Gods good side.  Yet, I know, I have made mistakes.  I have sinned.  But I have repented.  I did what I saw others do in ministry.  Do I want to judge anybody? No.  For, I know, I will offend someone.  It will convict, or condemn, someone who is using the gospel, for their own monetary purposes.  For those who do have an anointing, in prosperity, and share ALL of the gospel, of Christ, it is not meant for them.  But for those, who are manipulators, Christ will overturn the tables.  You are warned.  But I thank God, for his grace, and forgiveness.  I pray, this will just help someone in ministry, for the right reason.  The reasons of God.  And why He sent His son, Jesus Christ for us.  

AND THEY CAME TO JERUSALEM: AND JESUS WENT INTO THE TEMPLE, AND BEGAN TO CAST OUT THEM THAT SOLD AND BOUGHT IN THE TEMPLE, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES OF THE MONEY CHANGERS AND THE SEATS OF THEM THAT SOLD DOVES:  AND WOULD NOT SUFFER (PERMIT) THAT ANY MAN SHOULD CARRY ANY VESSEL THROUGH THE TEMPLE.  AND HE TAUGHT SAYING UNTO THEM, IS IT NOT WRITTEN MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED OF ALL NATIONS THE HOUSE OF PRAYER?  BUT YOU HAVE MADE IT A DEN OF THIEVES.  MARK 11:15-17

I think this is going to be, one of the most difficult messages, I have ever wrote.  More then ever, I know there is a God.  I also know, what His word says about, talking about, or putting down His people.  I know, that He corrects those He loves, to be obedient.  I know now, to be obedient.  So here goes….

Wow….I pray, I bring truth and love to this message, because I feel it stirring in my heart, so very, very much.  Its the Holy Spirit, just prompting me.  I can’t walk away, from this message.  Because it is needed.  The body of Christ needs to see this.  Leaders need to see this.  And, all I can say, before I write this, as a prayer, and even in love, I pray, not to judge anyone, because I am not naming any names.  Nor is it directed to anyone I know.  For I have, had to judge myself in this matter, as well.  But, I feel like God, wants to use me, to speak a word of truth…..

This is to the leaders of the church.  This is a message, to anyone who is in ministry, for the wrong reasons.  This is to awaken people, the body of Christ, and the lost, to know, the prosperity message, is not the true message of Jesus Christ, in part….

For the truth of the matter is, that there are some very smart, intelligent, knowledgeable, preachers, who may even have an anointing, to speak of prosperity, but they have taken that banner, and left the truth of Christ behind.  They know, Gods principles, and they have an understanding of Gods expectations, etc.  For prosperity, but they leave out the most important part, in acknowledging, and making mention, that Salvation, should be the first priority.

People, are turned off, with the prosperity message.  They are tired, of seeing you ask for money, all the time.  They are tired, of seeing you gloat, and bragging about the money you got.  They are tired, of knowing truth, themselves, and having an expectation, of you, to speak love, to speak of who Christ is, to speak, what Christ told us to do, and that is to love one another, and loving God first.  And instead, you ask for money.  And people leave their churches, getting a lecture, from their pastor, about giving.

And sadly, many do not go to church, for that very reason.  They do not hear a good word, of salvation or hope.  Or instruction, to live a godly life.  They hear, give your money, its biblical, and thats all they hear.  No wonder there is so many atheists.  No wonder, they even hate us.  Because, some have distorted the truth.  Something has to change.  Look at our world, see the lost, they need to know truth, and love, and no one is reaching out to them, because the prosperity pastors, only care about money.  Or they only care, about their agenda.  Whatever that may be.

For, some, pastors, leaders, have fashioned themselves, to put a slant on Gods word, to take part of the scripture, to use it, for prosperity, and like little lambs, the people, do give to their churches etc.   And I am NOT saying, don’t tithe, don’t give offerings either. You are called to!  It is Biblical to give.  Malachi three tells us to give.  God even tells us to be obedient in this.  So read it to know, God will bless you, as you give.

But there is a balance in this.  And that is, people, need to change, their souls, to know Christ first.  To receive Salvation.  Hell is a real place, and no one is warning them.  Its not a priority.  We are all going to die, if we don’t get it right now, many souls, will be lost.  That should be first on the agenda.  Not some feel good message.

And some ministries, use the prosperity message, to entice the people, but they are leaving them high and dry.  Because they may know scriptures about prosperity, but they have no idea, how to be a light, to others, or to share the truth, of Jesus Christ.  About healing, or love, or anything, that God wants us to know….

The power of God is missing.  Churches are dead, the spirit, does not flow.  The atmosphere, is stagnant.  Everyone is talking, sharing, and nothing wrong with that, but this is Gods house.  And Revival, and the Holy Spirit, are put off to the side.  No one is quiet, in prayer.  The altar is a place for the band, not for searching for God.  No one is praying at the altars.  Healings, and altar calls, are not prevalent.  Its all standard, religion.  Not relationship…..

And is this true about all churches?  No, in fact, I have been to quite a few, and a lot of this is not prevalent.  But I have seen the difference, in many churches.  You can see, you know.  This is not being judgmental, this is how it is. In a lot of churches.  Why? Whats missing?  What stops God from meeting us even at church?  Is it the prosperity message?  Greed. etc.

And even now, as I am listening to Christian, television, and writing, ironically, the timing of this brings truth. For, I just heard a pastor just say, “you can get what you want, by a dollar and a holler!  Excuse me, this is all so, perverted.  The truth, is just missing….Now another pastor, is bringing perspective, praise God, he is saying seek God first.

Folks, all I know, is that we have to change, if we want to see God working in our lives.  What is our motive?

Now I know, by now, I am  ticking some people off.  But, I tell you this, not to judge anyone, because I know, money is needed for ministry.  It is needed to run, a good ministry.  But how is the money used?  Does it help people?  Or is it just helping, the one who is collecting it?

Years ago, I was shocked by the realization, that many ministries do not help others.  I was a Christian leader, in a place, where I could help people.  And I would communicate with the public.  And could communicate with ministries.  There were many, times, when communicating, I would see a true need to help someone, financially.  So, I would use, the data base I had to communicate with churches, and leaders, to see, if I could get them to help these needy people.  And they would not.  These were high profile ministries, and no one would help.  That bothered me.

Now, I have to be completely honest, here, because I could be judged in this, myself.  Years ago, when I first started my ministry, and I am talking about my history, as a writer, I would ask for donations.  I figured, I have to make a living too.  Here I was, writing my Poetry of Hope, my Messages of Hope, and I know, they ministered to many people.  People would tell me they ministered, to them. I also would pray for people.  I would write prayer cards for their need, based on scripture, so they could have prayers to pray.  With the word of God.  I would do the research. I would take the time, because I know, where to go to search for Gods word.

So, I thought, it was o.k. to ask for donations.  I turned off, so many, many, many people off.  That I would get, rude letters, insulting letters, and comments, that made me stop, and think what was I doing?

I finally went to the Lord, and just told him, I don’t want people to see me asking for money.  I want them to see you.  Not my will be done, but yours.  I let it go.  I repented. So I stopped.  Asking anyone for a donation, or money.

In fact, I would say its been many years, since, I asked for any money.  Check out my recent blogs, they have no, mention of money.  A couple of my older web pages may.  But, what I did, was I stopped, asking for money.

And now, I write, and I try to search for a job, but no one, is just handing them out right now.  For Christian writers.  But, I still write.  Because this is what I am called  to do, this is my gift and calling.  And no one is sending me any money.  I have to write, by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.  And I have even wrote on Prosperity, see my posts.  https://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com/people-have-asked-me/.  It is the link, on the top of my blog.  But no where, do I ask for money in this, nor do I contradict, what I write here.  Its about being obedient to God first.

How do I live?  Well, by the grace of God. God provides through my husband, and his retirement.  He served by working, and takes cares of my needs, and my ministry needs, because he sees the need, to help people, by what I write.  So, he supports me.  And it is not easy….

And so here, I am, trying to work honest, trying to present things, before the Lord, and people, honest, but I have to tell you, I am so glad, I quit asking for money!  That was the best thing, God could ever do, to correct me.  Because it changed me!

Something has changed in my spirit, concerning God, concerning His truth, concerning, even money.  I have a different perspective.  Its all about Christ!  Its all about saving souls.  Its about helping your fellow man, or brother or sister.  Its about love, forgiveness….

I try to use, what I have learned, what I have gone through, and always based on the Lords word, I try to help others.  By what I write.  I plant seeds of Gods truth, not financially, but if I could I would.  You see, if I got a job, writing, I would help others.  I would use that gift, to bring light.

I just again, do not want to judge others, because I know money is needed, to run ministries.  But, I pray, that pastors, even those hurting, take to heart, what others see.

Take to heart, what God really, wants you to share.  Its about God, it is about love, and what Christ did in that love, and it is about how great the sacrifice was, that Christ did for you, and for me. Its about his suffering, on that cross, and how He took our sins!  He took the penalty of the curse for us!  He died, and went and took the keys from the devil, so we can be made free, not only now, but for eternity!!!!!

Pastors, please, for the sake of your salvation, and the sake of others, quit putting a slant, on prosperity, and put the truth on the table.  Quit taking a word from God, and trying to make it a “gimmick”  like the righteousness of God, that turns into your own “self-righteousness”  Its about what Christ did for us!  Preach the gospel!!!

God is going to judge the leaders.  He is going to judge us all.  But, Pastors, you have a certain responsibility, that you will be accountable to God for.  You do not want to be ashamed, when you stand before him.  Please, change this, for your record, and for others.  Preach the gospel…of Jesus Christ.

And to whoever is reading this, share it with your leaders, your not judging them, your reminding them, what they are there for, to share the gospel.  Go to the top of this message, and copy and paste this link to your e-mails, and on your facebook pages.  Please and thank you….So others can see this.  To bring the lost, to be a beacon of light, that expresses, Christ, is the way, the only way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.

I am so glad, God corrected, and changed me.  It truly gave me a “true” perspective, as to what He wants.  He wants us to put him first.  I pray, I always bring Him, honor, glory, and praise, in what I do.

And dear one, and I say this in love.  If you have done this, if you have made the “prosperity message” your main message, just see the error of your ways.  Like I did.  I wasn’t ever trying to put a slant on prosperity.  But, the devil uses our mistakes, even though, we think we have good intentions.  If it is not right in the sight of God, we can get off track. Just see, what a good God we have.

And know this, you will be tempted, you will always be tempted.  Thats what happens in our lives.  But, if you can get free from this, prosperity message, and see the error of your ways.  To change your main message, you will be a soul winner for Christ, that will do great and mighty things.  Thats what I believe for me too.  No matter what the devil throws at us, no weapon, will prosper.  But, we have to do it Gods way.  I know….

This is my Prayer of Hope…..Not to judge anyone, but to bring truth.  Be it, what it is.  God is love.  Seek ye first, the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all things will be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33

Blessings, and much love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, for your correction, I thank you for giving understanding.  I thank you, that you care for me, and my family, and our needs.  I thank you, that you changed my heart, concerning donations, and that by your spirit, I am now led.  I do not judge anyone here, but I do speak truth, and what you have required of me.  Lord, maybe thats why I can write this, to other pastors, and to plead with them, to be careful, not to get caught up in the prosperity message, but to put you first.  Lord, we all need help, we all need to live, in this world.  But when it comes to the gospel, the message of Christ, should, and needs to be front, and center, not the prosperity message.  So help our world, help pastors, help us all, because many do need, help in their finances.  You see that.  But knowing you.  As we seek you, first, and your righteousness, all things will be added unto us.  Thank you Lord, in Jesus name.  Amen
