Playing the race card, makes you a racist.  And if you play that card, don’t be surprised, if the door swings back and hits you.  

Sadly, we look at someone who is a racist, and we hate, the injustice of it.  Usually, it is because someone, who is mean spirited, and hateful, that does terrible things to others.  Because of their race.  Do you see the full circle of it?  It causes hate.  Which is not good.  

Well, the sad thing, is when you start demanding your rights, because of your race.  And you pull out that race card.  Whether good, or bad, for your race, it is the same principle.  It makes you a racist.  I don’t care, what color you are.  That makes you a racist.

Hollywood, right now, is having a boycott.  During the Academy Awards.  By two famous, married actors.  And other high profile personalities.  Because of their race.  Because they did not get recognized.  Did you notice I am not mentioning them by their race?

I am not in hollywood.  I don’t play by those politics.  Or rules of engagement.  But, my goodness, what a gifted actor he is, and what a beautiful woman she is.  And they have had more opportunities, then me, or even the average person.  

I have always fought discrimination.  But in a different way.  By trying to make myself a better person.  By being a Christian.  By learning the characteristics and ways of my God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus.

I am Hispanic. The stereo types of my nationality, of my race, have always put me at a disadvantage, when it comes to ignorant people.  From looking at you, to see if you only speak Spanish.  Or stereo type you by wearing a sombrero, or whatever.  When people even address, you by your name, and tell you, if you are “legal” you should vote for a certain person.  

This just happened to me yesterday.  Where I was in a discussion, on a political post.  For Ted Cruz.  And I called that person out, and I gave them a piece of my mind.  I write out conversations often to record my quotes, and thoughts, and this is what I said in this one.:

“Go somewhere else, another country!  With that discrimination, that is just like “the candidate you support running for office.”  But how dare you tell me this by my name!  Let me inform you, educate you.  You moron.  I am an American.  Fourth generation. That means my ancestors were Americans by birth.  It also means I am probably more American because of my indigenous roots.  This is what is wrong with your candidates agenda and fools that follow that kind of agenda.  You are prejudiced, and it shows.  I have nothing further to say to your lack of class and intelligence.  Have a nice day.”  

My response, and I can say it myself.  Sounds harsh.  Maybe not even the Christian way.  I am a Christian but I am not perfect.  And I understand the injustice of racism.  My parents, told me at an early age, what racism did to them being in the Eisenhower era, and he rounded up Hispanics.  And shipped them back to Mexico.

I have seen myself, being denied, respect, by my race, even in the Corporate business world.  And yes, it makes me angry.  But even though I may get angry, and I may give you a piece of my mind, I still want to take a higher road.  And sadly, yes, there are many ignorant, prejudiced people.  Who hate.  They hate by the race, by the package someone comes in.  

Martin Luther King, had a beautiful thought, when he said, and I am paraphrasing, “I want to be judged by the integrity, and character of who I am”.  He was a man of God.  And I know with compassion, because history tells us, of so many atrocities, that have been done because of race.  My heart breaks when I see, how it destroys someones confidence, because of mean people who are racists.  It is ugly.

So many, have actually used genocide, to wipe away a people, a culture, a race.  Jews, suffered greatly because of this.  But they don’t hate.  Now, what they do, is defend themselves as they should, but they don’t put people down.  They are a good example of what to do as well.  They fight back now.  

And if you have to fight, then fight right, by doing what is right in the sight of God.  God is love.  And we are to have the characteristics of Christ in love.  

But scripture also tells us, He is not a respecter of persons.  Maybe, if I did not have my American upbringing, knowing the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and my Christian upbringing, I may have just not said anything.  I may have let that lady mock me, and insult me.  But something rose in me, because I know God is not a respecter of persons.  

Acts 10:34 King James.  THEN PETER OPED HIS MOUTH, AND SAID, OF A TRUTH I PERCEIVE THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS:

That means, He loves us all the same.  He looks at what we do, if we have accepted Christ as Lord and savior.  He looks, to see, if we repent.  For we ALL sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  He looks at our souls.  What do we have in our souls?  And if you are a racist, maybe you should see, by His example, that you should repent.  

So why should we be racists?  Why should any of us, take that kind of vision, that does not come from God?  Especially even now, I see it in this political campaigns of some.  

For even our King James bibles, and history tell us of wars, between people, and cultures.  

Do I want to engage in battle, over racial issues?  No.  

And I think we have a choice.  But we better look at who we like, why we like them, and are we someone, who wants to demand and play the racist card, because of race?  

I will defend you, if I see someone discriminated by their race.  Thats just my nature.  The big sister, who did not have a big sister to defend her.  But I like that same kind of defense.  We need to look out for one another.  We need to speak up.  We need to say, thats wrong.  Especially if we are Christians.  

I hope Hollywood, finds some kind of peace in this, but, again, I can only speak for myself.  I am a writer, I am a Christian writer.  I am an American.  Born and raised.  

But none of that means anything, unless I can write.  And prove it to God and others, that I write to serve my God.  But its not by the race card, I am playing to get recognition, or to even get a job.  Or getting a book deal.

Its by knowing what God says by my King James bible.  A true and holy word, that is not corrupted by men, or publishers.  It is…Applying it to my life, and to others.  Anything else is vanity.  Its being puffed up, and it is not worthy of recognition.  

For, it is taking, a gift of words, a knowledge that I have strived to learn, and commanding them to good use, for the Kingdom of God.  

With love, for myself, for you, for others….

Just as I am now, with….

Just my thoughts.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

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,

Elena Ramirez

If interested in reading my books via Smashwords, go to this link. My latest book. BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST. This book brings attention to the behaviors, one may have that can contribute to a curse. But by Christ it can change into a blessing. A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do….

BUT THEY AND OUR FATHERS DEALT PROUDLY, AND HARDENED THEIR NECKS, AND HEARKENED NOT TO THY COMMANDMENTS.  AND REFUSED TO OBEY, NEITHER WERE MINDFUL OF THY WONDERS THAT THOU DIDST AMONG THEM; BUT HARDENED THEIR NECKS, AND IN THEIR REBELLION APPOINTED A CAPTAIN TO RETURN TO THEIR BONDAGE:  BUT THOU ART A GOD READY TO PARDON, GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL, SLOW TO ANGER, AND OF GREAT KINDNESS AND FORSOOKEST THEM NOT.  NEHEMIAH 9;16-17.

So who are you appointing as your captain?  And can you see even in this scripture how good God is?

Rebellion, will hold you back.  And when I say hold you back, I am talking about growth, I am talking about blessings, and being in right standing with God.

So many times, when I was young, I was rebellious.  And it did hold me back.  I fell through the cracks, because of it.  Yet, no one reached out to me, with love, to tell me about this trait.  I want to do that now.  In love, and yes truth.

Because many times, we don’t learn, until we experience something.  And when we do, after a time of trial and error, we can see our ways.  But it truly does come by “submitting” to God.  But if I can spare someone some heart ache, I pray you take this to heart.  

And even here I want to thank God, and give Him praise for teaching me, and loving me, and yes forgiving me.  

King James scripture tells us; Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7.

There are so many times, I have tried on my own to do something, but what was missing, was that I was not submitting to God, completely.  Its like lip service.  You say you are a Christian.  But if your heart is not right before God, and you have traits, or characteristics, that do not reflect what God says, that is rebellion.

And God hates rebellion.  The devil was rebellious toward God.   So if you see that in yourself and you want to get right with God repent.  Because it is a characteristic of the enemy, and you do not want that in you.

And yes, the fear of God, which is very scriptural should come into mind, soul, and spirit, to remind us that the fear of God is healthy, for us in submission, and  to see even that characteristic of rebellion does not come from God, but yes the devil.  

Fearing God, makes you obey.  Because you love God.  Fearing God makes you realize there are consequences to doing it His way, or not.  And if you do not, you will pay the price.  Some how some way.  Its a principle, that comes into affect.  For we do reap what we sow.  Some would call it karma, but that is not a scriptural word.  It is reaping and sowing.  Galatians 6:7.  BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  

Sadly, I do see that characteristic, of rebellion among many Christians. We are known by our fruit.Luke 6:44.  For every tree is known by his own fruit…….

Oh some may be polite, and there are those who are rude, but some may just outright reject truth, when you bring truth to them, but they dismiss it, and pick and choose….but there is always that word that comes up, “JUDGING.”  

And instead of seeing that perhaps someone can see that rebellion, or see that you are on the wrong path, you may get offended.  Instead of being humble in the sight of God, and yes letting go of pride.  Which goes hand in hand with rebellion.  

There are some of us, who are not false in our walk with God, and God has brought them to us to help us, but if you reject them in rebellion, you are also rejecting Christ.  THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE GOD OF ISRAEL; GO AND TELL THE MEN OF JUDGAH AND THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM, WILL YE NOT RECEIVE INSTRUCTION TO HEARKEN TO MY WORDS?  SAITH THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 35:13.

And the devil has taken that scripture, of “thou shalt not judge”, twisted it, and made it to be offensive, when really God may be trying to correct you, and get you on the right path, and wanting to bless you, but you reject truth.  You are rebellious.  So you hold yourself back and the blessings.  

I have a few friends, on social media, who I have tried to bring truth to.  Concerning the King James Bible, and I have tried over, and over again, to show them the many discrepancies from other Bible versions, and they may be polite, but they do reject truth.  And then there are those who have tried to fight me with this, and yes rudely.  

I am not judging them, thats not my job.  God will judge though.  What I am trying to do is bring them this truth, in love, so they can get on the right path.

I have and will continue to try and show this in truth, that these versions are corrupt.  That many scriptures are missing from them, that God has warned us not to add, change or delete word.  

And yet when I have they reject this truth.  And it is rejected, this is rebellion.  

Yet all, I am trying to do is get them on the right path, to hear from God, to get an anointed word, a holy word, for any need they might have.  For really it is our manual to life.  Before we leave earth.  The King James bible has been preserved for over 400 years.  

Maybe you are reading this by chance.  But I truly believe it is by divine appointment.  God has his ways, and His timing.  Think about the people God freed, by Moses.  They murmured, and complained, and God called them a stiff necked people.  And because of their rebellion, their murmuring and complaining.  They did not find the promise land for 40 years.  They ran around in circles.  

AND THE LORDS ANGER WAS KINDLED AGAINST ISRAEL, AND HE MADE THEM WANDER IN THE WILDERNESS FORTY YEARS, UNTIL ALL THE GENERATION, THAT HAD DONE EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD WAS CONSUMED.  Numbers 32:13.

Even here we can see how important the fear of God is.  If only they had obeyed…..All of these things are attributed to rebellion.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to waste time, concerning Gods plan for me, or what could be.  

I know my rebellion has held me back.  I do fear God, more then ever, sometimes I read this Holy word, and I tremble, in fear, because one can miss it.  But I know who I am in Christ now, more then ever, by studying Gods word, by knowing what He wants.  And the King James is holy.  But more then ever, I pray to be right in His sight.  For His will, for His glory. 

There is a lot to being rebellion, according to the worlds ways, and the world will tell you do what you feel is best.  What feels good.  But that could also be rebellion.  If it is not in obedience to God.  This is why I will not use another bible version, because in the rebellion of these publishers, they rebelled, and corrupted Gods word, when He said, do not change or add to it, or delete it.  

YE SHALL NOT ADD UNTO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU, NEITHER SHALL YE DIMINISH OUGHT FROM IT, THAT YE MAY KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD WHICH I COMMAND YOU.  DEUTERONOMY 4:2

Also read Read Revelation 22:18-19 from the King James that one could lose their salvation.  One could lose their right to the Holy city by doing this.  In rebellion to changing His Holy word.  God has said He will breach his promises.  And thats if we do not keep our part of the covenant or our promises to His promises.  And it goes back to the example of what happened to those who rebelled.  See Numbers 14:34.  

In any event….I have a long ways to go still to be the best, I can be in Christ. But every day I will try to perfect it in Christ.  In His excellence, not mine.   By His standards not mine.  From my King James Bible.  There is no place for rebellion in my life.  Not after I really see what Christ did for me.  

So my question, is there rebellion in your life?  And can you see, you need to go to the throne of God, and repent of it, and obey?

Your growth and blessings are waiting for your answer.  

In service to Christ in love, Elena Ramirez
