I know why I am writing this….  Because I am a little weary with people.  In the body of Christ, and with the heathen.  Those that do want to disobey God.  

Writing, has always been an outlet for me.  So I express it here.  But I do pursue truth.  So, when I see even brothers and sisters, being so discourteous, or responding in denial, yes I get a little sad.  

Is it pride?

My husband reminded me it is a preference, to use these corrupt bible versions.  But my thought is this.  It is spiritual food, but it is junk food.  Its like these bible versions are coated with sugar, to tickle the ears.  But they are not healthy for you.  Sooner or later, there will be consequences.  

A way for the enemy to deceive someone.  Sometimes, we have to tell each other what is good for us, even in warning them and what is not.  I know the difference.  

I have had so many people lately, actually attack my writings.  Or will be so rude, that even their silence, speaks volumes, as I try and communicate.  High profile ministries, won’t even give me the time of day.  And my thoughts are dismissed.  I could name names….but I won’t.  

I will still continue as long as God gives me time to do this, His work, concerning His word.  But, I wonder, when we all stand before God, what will He tell these people, who have been rude to me?  Will they be ashamed, when He tells them the truth?  

Humbled, I wonder what He will tell me as well.  But I pray, my actions do not reflect a rudeness, that I have been receiving.  Is this the cost for doing the Lords business?  Well, I gladly do it, knowing what Christ has done for me.  

I find myself, forgiving, and speaking it out loud, just so my spirit will know it.  Making sure, I am wearing the armor of God to quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  I do not want that poison in me.  But I do see the venom that is coming out of some.  

When pride rejects truth, what happens? I find myself contemplating this.  How does it hurt the body of Christ.  A person individually?  I see, how it can sadly, stop the plan of God.  Disobedience.

Because I know this truth about bible versions, being corrupt, and that the King James is holy. I know this is my calling.

Yet I see something blocking truth. To my brothers and sisters in Christ. Why? What is it that the enemy has done to believers, that they cannot see the discrepancies, and the truth in this matter? Why cannot they admit this truth I present?

Why? Is it because somewhere in their own hearts, they cannot admit, that they made a mistake, by using a corrupt bible, and cannot admit this?

Why cannot they go on shouting it out, to admit, there is truth in this which I bring to many?

Pride, always has been the downfall of many. That little sense of “self-dignity” one wants to hold onto no matter, what the outcome, so one cannot easily say. I was wrong.

How can we grow, unless we admit our failings? How can we grow, if we do not throw ourselves at the mercy of a Holy God, and say, Lord, I see your ways. Not my ways. I understand, your way is not the way of mine right now.

It just takes one act of courage to admit it in the sight of God, and man. Yet, pride holds one back. Even to repent. Or to say I am sorry to someone else.  Or to say, I see this as truth.  

I am trying to be courageous, I am trying to stand for that which is right. I am trying…..

The release is not evident, until one can do that. Pride holds one back for so much. Even in receiving blessings. It is like poison as well, when one cannot forgive, or release something because it is too difficult to release to God.

I see it, oh I wish I did not see it, yet I do, in so many. It is not judging, it is seeing what God says, in judging His truth righteously. It is rejected.  

I try with all my being, and with prayer, to reach someone, anyone, to see this. Not that I judge them. But I see the famine, in Holy word.

BEHOLD THE DAYS COME, SAITH THE LORD GOD, THAT I WILL SEND A FAMINE IN THE LAND, NOT A FAMINE OF BREAD, NOR A THIRST FOR WATER, BUT OF HEARING THE WORDS OF THE LORD. Amos 8:11.

I cry, because I see my brothers and sisters, reaching out for a word, and it is not a King James word, holy, sharing it, and they do not see the discrepancies. I cry, without pride, because I see the body of Christ is crippled, and the enemy, is rampant deceiving even in the word of God truth.

And there is either silence, or a contempt that is so rude, that it defies truth, that is presented.   Is that pride?

Its like I am trying to swim upstream to reach those coming down, that they do not have to go down, but they can reach a greater height, in Christ if they only took my words to heart. But then again, these are not my words, they are the words of the most high God.  They actually reject what He says.  I cannot even comprehend that.  There it is in the King James.  Do not add, or delete His word.  Do not change it….Revelation 22:18-19.  God hates it so much, that He warns salvation could be lost.  And yet people get mad at me for showing them the scripture.  It is truth! From the King James bible.  

I have just put them in an order, to explain, the heart of God in this. To explain it in my post. And other writings.

“THE REASONS WHY I AM SO ADAMANT TO DEFEND AND PROMOTE THE KING JAMES BIBLE”….(see link below)

Is it because it is from me? A woman? Or even greater, a hispanic woman? One without a doctorate in religion, or bible studies? How could that be? Isn’t truth… truth? No matter where it comes from?

And no and thats why I remind you that Gods truth is not mans truth.  

I am not playing the race card.  But many do.  Stereotypes, of people, is obviously been taught.  All you have to do is watch the news. 

I am reminded, God is not a respecter of persons. So we have to see, that, because Christ gave His life for all of us. Of all races, of all backgrounds.

FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD. Romans 2:11.

God will use the foolishness of the world, to confound them.

Maybe this explains why someone will not listen to me.

BUT GOD HATH CHOSEN THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD CONFOUND THE WISE; AND GOD HATH CHOSEN THE WEAK THINGS OF THE WORLD TO CONFOUND THE THINGS WHICH ARE MIGHTY. I Corinthians 1:27.

Oh I will be the first to admit, how foolish I have been in my lifetime. I had to, I had to release it, so I could go on, and grow. In the ways of my dear Lord Jesus. Who is by the way, the truth, and life. John 14:6.

I had to see the error of my ways. I had to admit, before God and the world, the many mistakes I made. I had too. I have lost so much even in a personal way, that has actually humbled me so much, because I am not confident in who I am, but who God is.

Thank you Lord, for that sense to write it like this. Why? Because people have not always been kind to me. In the world, and in the body of Christ. From those who have hurt me, coming from brothers and sisters in Christ.  These have been the worst wounds of sorrow, I have experienced.

But even now, today, I will learn to ignore negative comments.  I feel different.  Stronger, adamant, but not so weary. And my confidence is in God and not people.  Oh well…..

Oh there are a few who love me. But there are those who do not. But pride, no I don’t want that. Especially when it comes to knowing what God wants!

Let me rephrase that, what He commands us to do.

So, here I am writing this, somewhat frustrated today. Yet strangely at peace.  Because I have poured my heart out for others to see this truth. I have presented this to many in the body of Christ. Some with authority. Some who could make a difference. Yet careful. Because God has warned me not to give flattering titles.

FOR I KNOW NOT TO GIVE FLATTERING TITLES; IN SO DOING MY MAKER WOULD TAKE ME AWAY. Job 32:22.

Yet what about just walking in love? Or giving a courtesy to another brother and sister in Christ? So the body of Christ, can see among each other, this is what Christ has called us to do. To show we are His disciples.  Again, what will God say to those who have tried to hurt Gods people.  

For the glory of God, and to help someone. So they can grow. About what God says, but no, right now it is rejected. Silence. Well be it be what it is. I can only try and obey God.  

But I will say this as a warning.  People, need to see the way they treat the things of God, and Gods people.  Because God is not mocked.  Galatians 6:7 King James.  Food for thought, and a warning in love.  

If you are interested in reading this, maybe you can see it, and not have pride, and maybe tell someone else. Tell someone so they can grow. So they can obey God. So they can get answers, this post, is my most current post. I have written a few of them on this subject, but maybe this one will give you truth.

Please I ask, though, leave your pride at the door, so you can go in, to hear truth. You may view my thoughts on this at this link.

It could be a door to you growing.

But I do want to close on an optimistic note.  One that has hope, in my brothers and sisters.  And to just acknowledge the support and love I do receive from some.  

For you see, I love seeing the wisdom of so many.  Who adore our Lord.  Who take His Holy word to heart.  Who see the discrepancies in other bibles, and use a holy King James word.  Who walk in love.  And are sometimes humble not prideful.  It takes a lot for a person to admit they are wrong.  

But I know God gives and blesses someone who does obey, and lets go of that pride. And just admits I was wrong…

I love seeing love in action.

ALL THE SAINTS SALUTE YOU.  II CORINTHIANS 13:13  

Blessings, and love, Elena

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

REBELLION WILL HOLD YOU BACK ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR 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

Talking about Yoga my thoughts…

What I see is that compromise is so easily thought. And I think the body of Christ not only in this is compromising to do Yoga as a Christian, but it has lost the fear of God. From watered down Bibles, scriptures not taken to heart, and just letting “that feel good mentality” by grace is just wrong.  

Folks remember, what Christ did for you on that cross.  You do not want to compromise that.  I know you don’t but many of you are so deceived, by the ways of the world.  And really thats the enemy trying to steal your souls.  

We need to see this, not only for all of us but individually. Your not judging someone if you tell them something is wrong. Your warning them. And we are called to do that.

This is wrong I believe in the sight of God. Because the spiritualism comes from idolatry practices. And that is sin in the sight of God. I don’t know about you all but I fear God. And I work out my own salvation with trembling and fear.

When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live. Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal. When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. (Ezekiel 33:8-18 KJV)

ARE YOU CONSISTENT IN YOUR LOVE WALK OR CASTING STONES?


I want to build a foundation, as I write “Just My Thoughts.”  So, with that thought in mind…we know, Jesus Christ is the cornerstone, of our faith.

Everything, we are, in him, is built on the foundation of who He is.  And as we grow, we grow in all of His attributes, personality, authority, and beauty, of who He is.

First and foremost, Jesus is love.  And if we are truly, Christians, love, will be evident in who we are in him.

God is love, and so we need to be completely, submitted to that love. I John 4:7-8 Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

We must be aware, of our actions, our fruit, the appearance, of what is seen by God, and others.  So we must constantly, be working on that love, and letting Christ rule, as the foundation.

Yesterday, I went to church, and there was a guest speaker there.  And this gentleman, gave basically a message, about being “consistent” in whatever you do for God.  To keep practicing, and doing whatever it is that you do.  He gave an example of Billy Graham.  And how Billy Grahams Sunday school teacher taught him, and inspired him.  And well, the rest is history, Billy Graham is one of the most beloved, well respected, and admirable, people of God, who has made an affect for the Kingdom of God.  He is a soul winner.

And this message so inspired me.  Because I want to be a soul winner.  I want to do great things for God.  And I want God to get glory in what I do, so I know, I need to be consistent, in many things.

But as I prayed, last night, I prayed, a small prayer, Lord, just help me to be “consistent.”  And the first thing, I felt the Lord speak to me this morning, is that I need to be consistent, in my love walk.  Walking in love with others.  Walking in love….

You see, this is a hard thing for me, on my own, in the natural.  Because I did not have love growing up.  Sure, I am sure my mom loved me.  But I did not have a “loving” family foundation.  Her and my father were divorced.  And when I grew up, I grew up fighting.  Fighting to survive, and sometimes just fighting.  Instigating, a fight.  A lot of times fighting with my mom.  So, for the most part, and maybe even some of my school friends remember this about me, I was in a lot of fights.  Not able to get along with people.  Sometimes, just defending myself, because of the environment, but it was so very prevalent.  Even in the business world.

So when I became a Christian, God became working on that with me.  I can successfully say, even after almost 25 years of marriage, and love, between me and my husband, and son, I walk the walk of love.  But God is the foundation of our marriage.  We married in holiness.  We made a covenant, that will not be broken, until death do us part.  God, our Lord, Jesus is the cornerstone, of our marriage.

So, I have learned, not to cast stones.  Not to bring up things, that hurt, or push peoples buttons, or to start a fight….If someone gets me angry, and I do get angry sometimes, but what I learned is, to let Christ be the spirit, that rules my heart.   I have learned to be consistent, in this love, no matter what…..

I just want to encourage you.  Being consistent, in love, should be in the forefront of our minds, souls, and spirit.  It does not come by osmosis.  But by Christ.  By letting Christ and his Holy spirit, guide us, to do and think all in love.  To learn, to walk away from an argument, or confrontation, and let love rule.  To let love, cover a multitude of sins.  For love never fails.  To agree, to even disagree in love.  To not argue, about doctrine, or the ways of the law, God, or whatever, because love, needs to be prevalent. To not pound anything anything in anybody, but to let love….Let God.

I know, this is something, I have to work at, but you know, what…?  I want to be consistent in this.  I want to be an expert, at love.  I want to do everything, that pleases my Lord, because of his great sacrifice.  The other day, I wrote, briefly, that when someone, displeases me, or angers me, or the devil is trying to get me to be resentful, I remember, what Christ did for me, and that he forgave me.  If he forgave me, I can forgive that person too.  Because he died for that person too.  And more then anything, He loves that person.

With a thought like that, I cannot throw stones.  I must continue on my walk with Christ in love.  I must be consistent, in love…

Just my thoughts, in love….

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor and Hope

Father, I praise you, and ask for guidance, and wisdom, and more then anything love.  Love to walk in life, with you and with others.  Love, that will not cast stones.  But love, that will remind me, and others, that you my Christ, are my Lord, and savior.  To walk away from disagreements, to not stir up strife, to not be an instigator, to know the difference, between love, and the fiery darts, the enemy tries to throw at me, to get out of my love walk.  Father, pour your love in my spirit, by your word, your compassion, your mercy, and all that is holy, that reminds me, of how great your love is.  Thank you Lord, for your love, that surpasses all of my understanding, but that is prevalent in my heart.  For you love, me, with a love, I cannot put into words, but all I can say, is thank you, and I want to show and share this love, that you give.  In my own way, giving back what you have given me.  Love.  In Jesus name.  Amen

THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, I AM GONNA LET IT SHINE….


I remember singing this, as a child.

Today, I woke up, not in a bad mood, but definitely, not my sweet self. If I do say so myself, since, I know myself. And I was not going to write today. I thought who cares?

And then I read this scripture in my daily morning reading, that is on the photograph, Ephesians 5:11-13, and I thought, you know. If I was the only one on this planet, I would speak the goodness, and saving grace of Jesus Christ. I thought of the saying, “if you can’t beat them, you can join them.” And I thought, if I was the only person in the world, who knew of the saving grace of Jesus Christ, I still would not join the forces of the devil. I will shine for Christ. I will not succumb to the darkness.

When I took this photo, I thought it was wasted, but it is not for it is symbolic. I am the photographer here. My flash shined. But there is darkness all around. I don’t need to be seen, I just need to shine. For Christ.

The devil is darkness, he is not light, he is not truth, he is a liar, and a thief, and he wants to steal the promises God has given us away from us. He does not want us to know truth, to set us free. He wants us to be in darkness. For he has blinded the world.

All we have to do is believe, and take God at his word. And I do. So no matter how much darkness, is about me, or how much the devil, wants to deceive, I am going to be watchful, and let my light shine. I am going to proclaim the goodness of Jesus Christ.

I am going to let him fight my battles, and all I am going to do is put on my armor, and stand. All I have to do is fight a good fight of faith. I don’t have to take on something that is not meant for me. Why do we as Christians think we have to fight the devil? When all we have to do is look to God, and let him fight the battle for us.

I am going to let God get all the glory and honor and praise, in everything, I do. For He gives me His word, it truly is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. So yes, every chance I get, I am going to tell on the devil. I am going to reprove his works of darkness. And maybe in doing so, deliver someone, so they can walk in the light of our Lord. Maybe I will see the fruit of that in someone else or not, as a testimony. But it does not matter. God knows…..So I will not underestimate the power, He has given me to shine for him.

Yes, I am going to let my light shine, for the glory of God. It may be a small light, but with Christ shining in me, I am going to shine bright. For Him. You can too. Maybe you will feel led to share this, and break the darkness around you as well.

Blessings, and much love.

My Prayer of Hope…

Thank you Jesus I praise you for the light, of love, you have given me. I plead the blood of Jesus to break any darkness. In me or those I pray for.

HAVE YOU BEEN REJECTED BECAUSE YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN?


Rejection, in any form, is hard to swallow.  We want to be liked, appreciated, and more then anything, I guess, just accepted.

Accepted, even with our idiosyncrasies, those odd little, peculiar, traits, we all have in our personalities.  Believers and non-believers.  No one is exempt from that.

But when you are rejected, and denied, in any form, because of your faith in God, because you are a Christian, it goes deep.  For not only, are they rejecting you, they are rejecting your Lord, and savior.  When you share the truth, or your faith, and you are rejected, Christ tells us, in John 12:48, HE THAT REJECTS ME, AND RECEIVES NOT MY WORDS, HAS ONE THAT JUDGES HIM, THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN, THE SAME SHALL JUDGE HIM, IN THE LAST DAY.

So when you are sharing your faith, and you are rejected.  It hurts deeply.  Because to reject your Lord, when you know, it was Christ that set you free, that becomes very, very personal.  For he took the greatest sacrifice, by going to the cross, and giving his life for you.  If you have truly repented, and have seen the error of your ways, by giving your life, your heart to Christ, for change, you understand, at what a great cost it took, for your salvation to be in tact.  He gave his life, he suffered, greatly and died.  But Hallelujah he arose again….

I want to touch on some of the things we do, that may cause people to reject us.  And if there is some truth here, and you are able to see this, it is not meant to condemn anyone, but if it convicts, and causes one to see, and change, or to attempt to rectify a situation, then my writing of this message, will not be in vain.

As Christians, we are all called to watch our behavior.  I Thessalonians 5:22 ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL. The worlds perception of many Christians, is they see, that they are conducting themselves, just as the world.  We have to be so careful anyway, because for the most part, and I see it so very strongly in our society, lately, that the world is not tolerant, to Christians, for many reasons.

So, when we are rejected, because the world perceives our behavior, is not above a higher standard, we can see the error of our ways.  So my question is this, what do people see in you?  Do they see someone, who goes to church, maybe reads the Bible, but acts like hell the rest of the week?  Do you cuss?  Do you have any behavior, that would even promote, to someone any kind of evil?

Being judgmental, of others, hitting someone with the Bible, self-righteousnes, there are so many categories, to cover in this, and I could go on, and on, but the goal is to stop and look at ourselves. To look, truly at who we are, in Christ.  And to ask yourself, these questions, and to look within, because Christ does see you, as well as the world does.

What do you need to do, so you do not act like the world, or have mannerisms of the world because you want to please Christ?

Our goal, in our relationship with Christ, is to please God.  Even though, the world may reject us, we have to be so careful that we are not ashamed.  And that our conduct is pleasing him.  Remember what Christ said about being ashamed? FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL BE ASHAMED OF ME AND OF MY WORDS, OF HIM SHALL THE SON OF MAN BE ASHAMED WHEN HE SHALL COME IN HIS OWN GLORY, AND IN HIS FATHERS, AND OF THE HOLY ANGELS.  LUKE 9:26. Here talking about his return.  We don’t want him to see that in us.  Remember what Peter said about being ashamed?  YET IF ANY MAN SUFFER AS A CHRISTIAN, LET HIM NOT BE ASHAMED: BUT LET HIM GLORIFY GOD ON THIS BEHALF.  FOR THE TIME, IS COME THAT JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD AND IT  FIRST BEGINS AT US, WHAT SHALL THE END BE OF THEM THAT OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL OF GOD?  I Peter 4:16-17.

So, we really have a responsibility, to judge ourselves, and to be careful, in our conduct.  And to see why we are being rejected?  To pray, in those times of testing….

Christ did tell us, they would reject us, because they rejected him.  We have to understand, by his love, even though, they reject us or hate us, we are still called to love.  Do people see love in you, or self-righteousness?  I am better than you, as an attitude?

John 15:17-18.  THESE THINGS I COMMAND YOU, THAT YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  IF THE WORLD HATES YOU, YOU KNOW THAT IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU.  IF YOU WERE OF THIS WORLD, THE WORLD WOULD LOVE ITS OWN:  BUT BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, BUT I HAVE CHOSEN YOU OUT OF THE WORLD, THEREFORE THE WORLD HATES YOU.

Dear one, I don’t know your situation, or why you have been rejected.  It is sad, that even in the body of Christ, we are rejected, even by one another.  I have been denied myself, many times, even by brothers and sisters in Christ.  And those wounds hurt the deepest, especially, if you never get an explanation, or closure.  But I have learned to forgive.  And as advice to any one, I know, that Christ told us to forgive for a reason.  So I tell you forgive, and pray for those who reject you.

There are many reasons, to forgive, but one thing, I have learned, is when you forgive, you  are set free from any rejection.  There are no ties, no chains, no bondage, when you forgive.  It may hurt, and sting, but the pain, will be replaced, by Gods love, and his kindness, and compassion.

I encourage you, whoever you are, if you have been hurt, or rejected, because you are a Christian, go to God, let him love you, and comfort you.

Do not stop walking with Christ, because of the rejection.

Continue to pray, and just be aware of the times we are in.  Prophecy is being witnessed in so many situations, and there is a persecution of the church.  But let us continue to love one another, love our enemies, love those who despitefully use us, and pray, that by some measure, of love that we would give, we would win the lost to God.  For our fruit to bear, to be known is our love for one another.

Matthew 5:44  BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU, DO GOOD TO THEM THAT HATE YOU, AND PRAY FOR THEM WHICH DESPITEFULLY USE YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU.

Just my Thoughts,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope

Father, I praise you, and adore you, and even here I thank you for my Salvation. Lord, I admit I get hurt by rejection.  But I have learned to forgive, and I see the benefits of it.  Lord, it is hard, to be rejected.  But, I pray for your people, that have been rejected, and I pray, you go to them as you said you would and “comfort” them.  I pray, the body of Christ, would, and I include myself in this, but that we would be mindful of our behavior, and abstain from any appearance of evil.  That we would carry ourselves in a way, that would bring honor to your throne.  Lord, just help us in these times.  Help us to be strong in our faith, and to never let go of our love, for you, or for one another.  But to be forgiving, as Christ taught us, and to love even our enemies, even if they do not love us.  Lord, help us, your people.  In Jesus name, Amen
