7 REASONS WHY THERE ARE NOT MORE SALVATIONS (SOULS SAVED) FOR CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3692.jpegI believe that the Lord revealed to me right now, that there are seven reasons why there are not more salvations (souls saved) for Christ.  There may be more, I won’t limit God revealing the truth to me.  

And I am directing this message to Pastors, and to Christians, who claim they are Christians, and think they are saved.  

And the reason I am doing this, is because I see the fruit.  King James scripture says, we will know them by their fruit.  But I am not seeing fruit from many other Christians.  Even those, who are very “religious” and that could also be a reason.  Because if you are saved, you don’t have a religion, you have a relationship with Christ.  

But what bothers me greatly, as I am sure it does Christ as well, is that Christians are not stronger, more convicted, more bolder, more courageous for Christ.  They doubt themselves, and it is obvious.  They are tossed to and fro, and the scriptures tells us this.  In their own faith, and because of that, there are souls who are not getting the truth, nor seeing the testimony that these lives have been changed for Christ.  They cannot be true witnesses, because they themselves are missing it. 

They are not overcoming the enemy, by the words of their testimony, and many are falling by the way side.  I implore you, just by these reasons, look and see yourself, if you are failing Christ.  By not winning souls. Because He did not fail you, when He gave His life on that cross.  

For the sake of time, I am creating this draft, and who knows, it could go into a book, but I will be brief in these reasons:

1.  THE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE SAVED ARE SILENT.

I see Christians, who are ashamed, to proclaim they are Christians. You see it in social media.  You see it, in personal life.  I have seen it with friends.  They will not engage in spiritual battle, because they don’t want to get into a fight, or lose their peace, or proclaim who Jesus is, so they will not be judged.  They allow the devil to speak against our God.  They allow freedom of speech to be used to deny the deity of Christ.  Do they not know Christ said, we would be judged if we were ashamed of Him?  When we stand before God. For whatever reason, that they are silent, now, they are allowing the devil to steal the glory of God.  And that is the saddest thing. They are allowing the devil to deceive others.  And if you are a Christian, remember this:  

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  PSALMS 107:2.  King James.  

2.  CHRISTIANS ARE USING WATERED DOWN BIBLES

And when they do that, they are watering down the anointing, and holiness, of the gospel, when they use scriptures that are not on the same page with God.  They are not giving examples  by pulling out their King James to others, to say, THUS SAITH THE LORD!  You know I talk about this often.  But its the truth, when you use a “changed” bible, you are using something the enemy has put his hand to, and taken out the holiness.  Those bibles are half truths, half lies.  When pastors using those they are the blind, leading the blind.  And there is no true conviction or anointing from word, that has been changed.  This is why so many people look at Christians, and they don’t see the transformation.  Whoever uses these fake bibles are not knowing many scriptures that tell us not to change it, or add to it, or delete it.  It is a commandment.  

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 KING JAMES. 

3.  THE PROSPERITY MESS AND MESSAGE IS BEING TAUGHT INSTEAD OF THE SALVATION MESSAGE.  

The pastors, that are so caught up in this prosperity message, are going to be judged severely by God.  Because Christ did not say tell them how to get rich.  He said, preach the gospel, so that they can be saved.  The prosperity message so deviates from what Christ did, who He is, and is very misleading.  God will stop it, I am sure.  But you my sister or brother in Christ, you need to stand up for this truth, and tell these fake prosperity messengers they are wrong.  

WHOSE MOUTHS MUST BE STOPPED, WHO SUBVERT WHOLE HOUSES, TEACHING THINGS WHICH THEY OUGHT NOT, FOR FILTHY LUCRES SAKE.  TITUS 1;7  King James.  

This is what Christ told us to do:

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.  HE THAT BELIEVETH AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED; BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED.  MARK 16:15-16  King James. 

4.  MANY CHRISTIANS DO NOT UPHOLD GODS LAWS HIS COMMANDMENTS

I see it often.  Many Christians have been taught that they do not need Gods laws. WRONG! They think that because of what Christ did, and they accepted him thats it and they don’t need to do anything else.  They are free from the law, saved by grace.  Yes, we are saved by grace.  But the only law we are free from is the law of sin in death.

Romans 8:2.  FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  

And what I find ironic about the stinking thinking they get from that.  They don’t read the rest of the Bible.  There are many scriptures that attest to Gods law. Where we are reminded about the law.  That one can even be happy if they have the law.  They think God flip flopped from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  He changes not! And that’s so wrong, no wonder many Christians are not a testimony of truth, because they deny Gods laws.  

Christ told us, He did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it.  Read, these scriptures folks.  Go to Psalms 119.  Read it in its entirety, it is one of the longest chapters in the bible.  But God so wanted us to understand His law.  Is His Holy word.  So if you are a Christian you can get back right with God.  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW, OR THE PROPHETS:  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY BUT TO FULFILL.  MATTHEW 5:17 King James.  

5.  IS LOVE AN INDICATOR?

There are wolves in sheeps clothing.  I meet and talk with them all the time.  And you have to test and try the spirits, or you will be deceived.  

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  King James.  

Look again at the word they are using.  Look and try the spirits.  Do they walk in love, as Christ commanded us?  Because if they do not, they are not truth.  That is always an indicator.  I meet and have dealt with the meanest, most religious people, who have called me a sister  in Christ.  And then their fruit, is so satanic, its actually scary to meet people like that.  I don’t follow people I follow Christ, for this very reason, but when I see them turn on me, and the love is not there, I know, they have revealed who they really are.

A NEW COMMANDMENT I GIVE UNTO YOU, THAT YE LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, THAT YE ALSO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  John 13:34-35  King James. 

6. TRUE REPENTANCE WITHOUT WORKS IS NOT BEING REMINDED BY CHRISTIANS OR PASTORS.  

I never hear a message on repentance.  And many think it is a one time deal  NO! ITS NOT!  Look we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Gods word tells us we will reap what we sow.  And when we do not repent, that gives the enemy, a legal right to attack us.  We always need to get right with God.  And I recommend repenting, even daily.  We have to study ourselves.  We have to see, that only true repentance clears the slate, breaks curses, for what Christ did on the cross for us.  

We are to work out our salvation with fear. Yes, works, where are your works?  Faith without works is dead!  

EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE.  James 2:17  King James. 

Your salvation is not a legal right to sin again.  You have to see this.  It will make so much of a difference.  But if you are not right with God, I don’t believe you will have an anointing to minister to others, because you have not truly repented to God yourself.  My thoughts, but He says, that He will not hear our prayers, because sin is evident.  If you have not repented, for even a thought, how do you expect God to answer your prayers?  REPENT DAILY.  

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  ISAIAH 59:2  King James.  

IF THEY SHALL FALL AWAY, TO RENEW THEM AGAIN UNTO REPENTANCE; SEEING THEY CRUCIFY TO THEMSELVES THE SON OF GOD AFRESH, AND PUT HIM TO AN OPEN SHAME.  Hebrews 6:6  King James.  

7. CHRISTIANS ARE NOT TAUGHT THE FEAR OF GOD NOR DO THEY FEAR GOD  

I will close with this last thought, but it is very obvious, many Christians do not fear God. I hear some say, yes, I reverence Him, I respect Him, but they have no fear of God.  And to me, that is very dangerous territory.  Very dangerous, see you are in a prideful place when you don’t fear God.  

He controls everything.  In this life, and in the after life, and to play with that thought, is to me dangerous.  You are playing with your soul.  Besides your life.  You will not be a true witness to Christ, unless you begin to understand the fear of God.  

To me, it is one of the healthiest things I can speak, proclaim, to God, to other Christians, because then they understand I fear God.  I am not trying to mislead, or take advantage of anybody in this lifetime, because I understand the fear of God.  It goes back to that we reap what we sow.  

And I have had poor judgement, I will be the first to acknowledge that, in many ways.  But I have the fear of God now.  And it will make a difference in your faith. I know, according to Galatians 6:7 God is not mocked. Please look it up yourself in a King James.    

When I try to witness to people, and they knock my faith, again, they don’t know what Christ has done for me.  But I warn them, even there, be careful.  Do not mock God.  Have some fear of God, because one never knows.  And if you have offended God, through the Holy spirit, well you are in some dangerous territory.  He sees everything, knows everything we do.

But if you are a Christian, and you have no fear of God, you are missing it.  You are deceived by the devil himself.  And he started that crap with Adam and Eve, when he lied to her.  Don’t let the devil lie to you about that.

LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER:  FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN.  Ecclesiastes 12:13  KING JAMES. 

So I will close with these thoughts.  But I hope you are inspired, to start being a witness someone who can win souls for Christ.  To pull someone out of hells fire.  Its not easy, but you have to remember we are in a battle.  There are lost souls out there, who will not know Christ, unless you tell them to turn to God.  

And I know that you may not feel equipped to always speak the truth, but you have to try.  You cannot go silent.  You have to use what you know, and what God has given you.  Because we will be judged by God.  I know it.  

I fear God, even just in that.  Start growing my brothers and sisters in Christ, pray, daily, read your King James bible, yes repent, but grow, so others can see so you can proclaim.  Look what the Lord has done for me.  

I tell you all of this, because I know that I know there is a God, and I will not be silent in this, enough of the devil deceiving people.  Enough of Gods glory being diminished.  Its in my heart, to try and win souls.  Is it in yours?  If not maybe, you need to start over again…

AND THEY THAT BE WISE SHALL SHINE AS THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE FIRMAMENT; AND THEY THAT TURN MANY TO RIGHTEOUSNESS AS THE STARS FOR EVER AND EVER. DANIEL 12:3 King James.  

Blessings and love,

WHY THE WICKED DENIES THERE IS A GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Some days, some things are so clear to me.  Today is one of those days.  And I see how the wicked goes down the wrong track.  After a spiritual battle, in my own household, I saw some things that opened my eyes in other ways as well. 

But I am relating this not to my household but to the unbeliever.  Because as for me, and my house, we will serve the Lord.  And I proclaim that.  

AND IF IT SEEM EVIL UNTO YOU TO SERVE THE LORD, CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE; WHETHER THE gods WHICH YOUR FATHERS SERVED THAT WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FLOOD, OR THE gods OF THE AMORITES, IN WHOSE LAND YE DWELL: BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.  JOSHUA 24:15.  KJV.  

But this is to the hater of God.  The mocker, the one, who thinks they can put down another’s faith, and the one who dismisses truth about who God is.  The one who makes jokes about scriptures.  Calling some folks “Bible Thumpers.”

I have seen it so often in my life.  I saw it as a little girl.  My mother was a Christian.  She went to go and baby sit for a lady and a man.  That night this man came home, with his wife.  He saw my mothers bible.  He mocked her.  Laughed at my mother.  Called her filthy names, because she believed.  He threw me and her out of their house, in the middle of the night.  In the cold, in the darkness.  And we had to walk.  I don’t remember how we got home.  I just know by the grace of God we did.

My mama, did not know the word, Gods word, like I know it now.  She was persecuted.  And it grieves me, when I see other Christians take it as well.  Especially, when they don’t know truth to set them free.  When they don’t know what God really says.  When they don’t use their King James as swords.  When they go silent.  So I am sure it grieves my Lord too, when Christians don’t know KJV word. 

Its so important to know Gods holy word.  And again, I reiterate, King James holy word, that is holy not corrupted.  See you cannot fight the devil with words that have been corrupted changed, added, to, or deleted.  Because then they are no longer holy.  And the devil knows that.  So he deceives the world, with all of these fake bible versions, because the world is not obedient to even use holy word.  Let alone Christians.  I see it.

I understand.  Today, I understand more clearly, than ever before.  

MANY SHALL BE PURIFIED, AND MADE WHITE, AND TRIED; BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY:  AND NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND; BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND.  Daniel 12:10  KING JAMES. 

How dare the wicked deny God.  How dare they mock me, His servant.  But yes Christ told us they would.  Yes, I understand very clearly today.  I fear God.  And thats the best thing, I could ever do.  But the wicked does not fear God.  

THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE WICKED SAITH WITHIN MY HEART, THAT THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE HIS EYES.  PSALMS 36:1  KJV.  

See thats just it, and even among many Christians.  They don’t fear God.  And thats a lie from hell too, because if you don’t fear God, you are playing with your eternal soul.   Yes I understand the fear of God.  I understand who God is.  I have read the Holy book, and He is not mocked.  His wrath will be revealed, and yes it is very, very wicked, to deny God.  And there will be a price to pay, for not grasping that Christ paid the price for you.  

Here is a thought…..I don’t fear the devil.  I fear God.  Because if God is present, the devil will flee.  They are not equals.  No the devil is jealous, of who God is, and if you see that characteristic, in yourself.  You do not serve God, but the devil.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL  FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7  KJV.  

So….How dare anybody tell me I serve a fable.  How dare anybody tell me my God is not real!  How dare they!

It gets me righteously indignant, and furious!  Why?  Because they don’t know what God has done for me.  They don’t know that He came and set me free.  When I was at the bottom of the barrel.  When I was so lost, I could have died, and nobody would have cared for my soul.  Nobody.  How dare they mock, what God has done for me.  They have not walked in my shoes.  They don’t know.  They just don’t know!  

So when I try to share my faith, and I try to walk in love, and show them my Jesus.  It grieves me, when they mock, when they laugh.  It grieves me, even when past friends have told me, I just talk about myself.  No I don’t talk about myself, I talk about what God did for me, so someone else can believe and see the truth.  Its called a testimony.  And we overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony.  

AND THEY OVERCOME him BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH.  REVELATION 12:10  KJV.  

When they even tell me, they feel sorry for me.  Really?  Don’t feel sorry for me!  I just told this man, the same thing.  Don’t feel sorry for me, because I serve, a mighty, good, and merciful God.  But I had to see my own wicked ways.  I had to see what Christ did on the cross for me.  I told this man, he still had a choice.  But he won’t understand, until he turns from his wicked ways, and sees what Christ did on that cross for him.  And yes, repents.  Or worse, when he stands before God, and realizes he had a chance, for salvation, but instead he decided to mock me, and my God.

So why does the wicked deny there is a God?

I will tell you why.  Because it is the sin, that comes from hell itself, and blinds people.  

So they don’t see, how filthy they are in their sins.  They don’t see, that they are delusional, because they denied the truth, and God opened the spirit of delusion, for them to believe the lie, because they deny the truth.  They don’t see that they call evil good, and good evil.  And woe unto them! They don’t see because they have no true light in them.  Because they choose to walk in darkness.  Spiritual darkness. They actually have spiritual blinders on their eyes…..

It is the sin, that stops the truth, from setting them free.  See, we all sin, we all come short of His glory.  We do.  We will have poor judgment.  We will be in denial, until we totally open ourselves up to God, and His ways, His commandments.  His love.  And turn from the sin!  Oh my, I learned the hard way.  So how dare anybody mock my belief, and knowledge, to know that I know there is a God!  How dare they!

How dare any of us, act like we are holier then thou, when it took so much for Christ to give at that cross.  It shames me, to even think, that my sin’s, put him on the cross.  But I am so grateful.  You see, I was so lost.  So broken, so misguided.  

But I know more than ever, it is the sin, that separates us from God.  Its the sin, that stops even our prayers from being answered.  That turns into a curse!  

Because we serve a Holy and mighty God, who will not compromise His standards for us, even though He loves us.  We can stop our growth. By being disobedient, or compromising who God is.  So don’t just obey God, love Him, and see who He is…it will be better for you.  

PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE!

We hurt ourselves.  When we allow sin, when we compromise His truth.  But many do not see that.  They will not be totally purified, until they turn from their wicked ways.  Take the blinders off, repent, and serve God in body, mind, and soul.  There is no compromising with God.

Compromising is sin.  

All I know right now, is more than ever, I am more dedicated, to being a light that shines for Christ.  I pray, He uses me.  I pray, I am worthy though, to serve Him.  I submit to God, I resist the devil, and he must flee.  The only way, I know, is by being obedient to God.  Trusting Him, loving Him.  Taking every word of my King James bible to heart.  Because it is there, that I hear His loving voice, that counsels me, directs me, corrects me, and shows me who He is.  Loving the one who set me free.  To see.  By departing from sin, any kind of sin, so the devil will not deceive me.  

I don’t want to be counted with the wicked.  And any fool, that denies, God, is playing with their salvation.  And that’s just dumb to me.  Foolish, to play with your soul.  To mock God and hell.  That is wicked. 

I think of some folks, on this earth, who have experienced hell, on earth, and they got away.  Well, one can avoid hell as their eternal destination.  Because if they choose wrong, they won’t be able to get away.  If they just open their eyes.  

They must though…See, their sin, repent to God, believe on the name of Jesus Christ.  See who He is, for He is love.  Live for Christ, because to live to the flesh, is hell, and that is what one will reap.  By choosing to be wicked.  By choosing evil, over good.  By denying Christ, the truth, the way, and the life.  By denying God, through, His holy begotten son, our Lord Jesus Christ.  

UPON THE WICKED HE SHALL RAIN SNARES, FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, AND AN HORRIBLE TEMPEST:  THIS SHALL BE THE PORTION OF THEIR CUP.  PSALMS 11:6.  KJV.

Oh hell is real!  I just know, and understand more clearly, how we are the temples of the living God.  That His holy spirit, cannot live and dwell in our spirits, if we allow any kind of sin friend.  You just cannot compromise God, and expect holy results.  You cannot.  

And I guess, I am speaking to the luke warm Christian, who compromises.  Plays with sin.  A little here or there.  Who is not totally committed  who walks the line between the world, and God.  But really making friends with the world, and that is enmity to God.  

YE ADULTERERS AND ADULTERESSES, KNOW YE NOT THAT THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD?  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD.  JAMES 4:4  King James.  

BECAUSE THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD:  FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE.  ROMANS 8:7.  KJV. 

You need Gods law, and if you go to a church that denies the law of God, run out of there.  See the only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death, not Gods commandments.  Read Romans 8:2 from a King James.  See, I share scriptures, but I know that I know God wants you to search.  But also read Psalms 119, to understand how important the law of God is.  You cannot make it to heaven without it.  

What Christ did for you on that cross, is not a license to sin.  It will make you wicked, and you will regret it for eternity.  

And to the unbeliever.  To the wicked, who denies God. Who has chosen to go down the wrong track.  Stop knocking others faith!  Stop mocking, something, that is precious.  See, you have to see, God is not mocked.  And you will reap that.  Like I said its dumb to mock God.  

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED; FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7  KJV.  

I am done for now.  It had been a while since I wrote, but I know God put this all in my heart to share.  I give God, glory, honor, and praise.  I am so grateful.  That He fills my cup.  But I am not ashamed of Him.  I am grateful, and I proclaim it as truth. 

Blessings, and love, in Christ, my savior.

UNDERSTANDING WHY MANY ARE TURNED OFF WITH RELIGION ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If I was searching for religion, I would want truth.  I would want something, that would bring me closer to God.  So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants.  How to survive.  

More then anything how to thrive in life.    

There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.  

Or how some get misled.  Or fall into cults.  Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him.  Yet they get misled.  

First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:

Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups.  These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.  

Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.  

These people leave out one great element, and that is love.  Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust.  I am talking about holy love.  Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments.  And just Him.  And loving others.  Strange how they leave that love out.  And that it is a commandment.  They leave it out.  They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love.  You have to listen carefully.  

The sad thing though, is many claim they do.  They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say.  They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on.  But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say.  They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is.  They pick and choose.  

Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth.  You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.  

Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God.  Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin.  That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.  

YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?  MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.  

Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision.  It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible.  GET A KING JAMES BIBLE.  Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.  

If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church.  A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would.    Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.  

I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway.  And where he did not believe there was a hell.  And that message is so wrong.  But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul.  And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong.  As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic.  And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads.  And he is the blind leading the blind.  He does become branded a Heretic.  But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.  

The movie is entitled:  Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate.  Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it.  Because hell is real. 

Maybe this is why I write.  Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies.  They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.  

I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself.  Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies.  You need to search for God yourself.  So you can know.  Religion, will not do that.  

Its a turn off to many.  And I understand it.  The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says.  Religion.  Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think.  And its wrong. 

I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.

So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free.  One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.  

I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer.   By seeing, I needed to repent.  By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.

I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate.   I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water.  But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference.  I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.  

AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE.  AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.  

JOHN 10:4-5  King James.  

Look, I don’t know who my audience is here.  But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God.  Don’t stop searching for God.  

You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses.  And that we are all the same.  We are not!  

And you don’t want anything to do with them.  I understand that.  I stay away from them too.  But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is.  You need truth, friend.  

Don’t search for religion friend.  Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings.   Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ.  Never a person. 

I would start by just a prayer.  Repenting, admitting, your sins.  Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you.  Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you.  Or implemented as a rule for you.  

See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search.  Don’t deny the law.  Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law.  We do.  

I recommend a King James bible.  For holiness.  Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much.  Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives.  So use only a King James bible.

Pray to Him daily.  And I also believe in daily repentance to God.  Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent.  This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him.  He is your greatest friend.  He will never leave or forsake you.  He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.  

You need to keep it up, or you will get cold.  If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.

Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.  

Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off.  But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ…..

I SO ADMIRE WHEN SOMEBODY APOLOGIZES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0101I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person.  It took the blow of it away.  It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense.  I could relate.  But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love.  That did my heart good.  So good I am writing about it.  

I do, admire when someone apologizes.  It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry.  I made a mistake.  I was wrong, please accept my apology.  

It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more.  It seems like pride, takes over often.  And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them.  Or makes them look inferior.  But not to God, He sees….And He will judge. 

So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it. 

With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy.   Thats the wrong approach.  Getting into someones business.  

Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us.  It really does.

I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me.  And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment.  It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.  

So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses.   I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive.  But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.  

Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say.  “You know what I made a mistake.”  They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.

They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.

Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.  

Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere.   But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive.  You see, being unforgiving, is a poison.  And you don’t want that in your soul.  So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.

 I really do respect it, and love seeing it.  If someone apologizes.   That tells me, they want to grow.  They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.  

But to each their own.  I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.  

Sad thing is, because one never knows….

I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.  

See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong.  Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out.  And you may need to do some major repenting.  Because you are hearing the wrong voice.  Thats not Christ.

Something to think about, “Just My Thoughts,” today….

Blessings, and love,

THE FIRST REASONS WHY I TELL SOMEONE TO REPENT TO GOD OR APOLOGIZE TO OTHERS ~ By Christian Elena Ramirez


PB030136.jpgThe first reason, why I tell someone to repent to God, is because its obvious, they stepped out of their love walk.  It happens.  We all can do it.  But we do have to get back to that place, where we are repenting, to God, humble.  But we do have to recognize it…

See, Christ told us, we would be known by the love.  

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:35.  KJV.  

When we get out of that place of love, by not repenting, or by not apologizing to someone we offended, we give place to the enemy.  We can actually hurt ourselves, or curse ourselves, by getting out of that love walk.  

Because it takes away our hedge of protection.  From the blood of Jesus.  His blood is love, He suffered, and took our transgressions, because of His love, and that blood, that is pure.  It protects us.  Even here I plead His blood, dear Jesus, and I thank you.  Love always protects.  (read Isaiah 53:5  kjv)

Its obvious by the fruit.  One can automatically sense, and see whether or not, its love, or even hate.  By the fruit they give to a person.  And even an animal could sense it….

WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  Matthew 7:20. KJV,  

When people make excuses, instead of apologizing, or repenting to God, it brings in pride.  Pride goes before a fall.  

PRIDE GOETH BEFORE DESTRUCTION, AND AN HAUGHTY SPIRIT BEFORE A FALL.  PROVERBS 16:18  KJV.  

I would never wish even my enemy to have destruction or a fall, so I try to warn someone, to see their “haughty” spirit, to avoid that.  By repenting or apologizing. Thats love.  And I try to stay in that love walk.  I have to for my own soul.  

The fruit reveals, whether or not the “spirit” comes from God, or the enemy.

AND THIS IS HIS COMMANDMENT, THAT WE SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AS HE GAVE US HIS COMMANDMENT.  I JOHN 3:23 KJV.   

When I tell someone you need to repent, I am telling them, because I am trying to save their soul.  So they truly can be born again.  First.

I am seeing the evidence, the fruit of what they are doing, and it shows, if the spirit is not from God.  By even their behavior, its not love.  I am telling them according to what my King James bible says.  

When someone mocks you, or brings up even your Christianity, to scrutinize, as if they were the expert, and judge, that not love, its an accusatory spirit, that only wants to make themselves look better.  See truth be, we all sin, we all come short of His glory. 

We are not to give place to the enemy.  Ever.  Yes there is forgiveness, but you cannot get that forgiveness, unless you ask.  You cannot receive it from God, unless you ask Him.  So one needs to repent.  Grace does not cover, that, it is a sin.  And this is where many have the misconception, about grace and the law.  Grace, is only given after repentance.  And He will not forgive us, unless we forgive others as well.  

But you cannot sin, by getting out of love, or disobedience.  Not forgiving, not walking in love, is disobedience.  To God, for God is love.  

BELOVED, LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  FOR LOVE IS OF GOD; AND EVERY ONE THAT LOVETH IS BORN OF GOD, AND KNOWETH GOD, HE THAT LOVETH NOT KNOWETH NOT GOD; FOR GOD IS LOVE.  I JOHN 4:7-8.  KJV.  

Do you see in this scripture, that it says, we are to love, because we are born of God.  Well when we repent, we are born of God.  That spirit, should always be the main spirit, we work from.  Thats always the goal.  But the enemy does want to steal that from us, by getting out of our love walk. 

When someone offends me, I automatically know, and in most cases, I even tell the person, I forgive you.  Whether or not they apologize, because I do not want that poison in my soul.  Its a two-way sword, and when in battle, things can be said.  And I remember, the scripture.  

GREAT PEACE HAVE THEY WHICH LOVE THY LAW:  AND NOTHING SHALL OFFEND THEM.  Psalms 119:165.  

I repent, and apologize, because I do get offended.  And I try not to.  But I am human. I am not going to lie.  But because of His law, that I love, I repent, I apologize.  I want to be mature in understanding.  Do you see, even here how important the law is?  Many teach you don’t need it, but because I love you, I warn here as well, repent, and embrace the law of God, even though you have been taught wrong.  A perfect example….

Repenting, and apologizing go hand in hand.  

For, when the person, who offended apologizes they also release themselves, so God can forgive them, and so they can see, they need to get right with God first, and then the person.  

Its not complicated.  But one needs to know, the principles in which Gods Kingdom, reveals who He is, and who the enemy is.   Love, never fails.  

When I tell someone to repent.  I am telling them, because first I serve God.  And then, I am telling them, because I am commanded to love, others.  So I warn them.  Repent.  Apologize.  I am telling them because I love God, and I love them. 

I am not trying to be their boss, or be bossy, but I do take authority in matters like this, because I am an ambassador for Christ.  And so I use that authority to warn someone, and tell them, you are in spiritual danger, by getting out of your love walk.  You need to repent.  You need to apologize.

It grieves me, when I have to tell this to people, I love, because I guess, I thought, they understood, that, and would automatically be humble.  And walk in love with me.  But lately, I have not been seeing that.  And it grieves me.  I will be honest.  I have lost friends lately.  Friends that I loved dearly.  But something happened, even in their love walk, where love was not communicated.  I cannot second guess people.  And when I extend grace and they give me the silent treatment, its hard to understand.  

I come from a different place, I confront situations, I don’t hide my feelings, or allow things to offend me, so I try and talk, but when thats not received, I know there is a spirit of offense.

I try to do it in love, but when its not reciprocated, what can I do?  I pray…So oh well.  But I serve God first.  I am not a people pleaser.  Even though, I walk in love.  I walk in love toward God first.  I look to see what I am doing offends God or not. Then people. 

But when I see the resistance, to not repent, or to apologize, it does grieve me.  Because I know the principles in this, and it opens the door to the enemy.  I don’t wish that for any of my friends, or enemies. Or even “frenemies”  Because I am commanded to love.  And love, does not speak evil, or return evil, just because someone does not agree with you.  

I hope this helps someone.  But I felt the Lord put it on my heart, to explain it today.  

Please, repent, go to God, you see, I have learned this, to daily go to Him, and ask Him to forgive me, because I am sharp sometimes, and I come off blunt, as well, and love may not always be seen.  

But Christ is my Lord, and savior, and His spirit, I embrace, and I let His love, live in my heart, the temple of the Living God.  I often ask others, who is living in your temple?  Because love is not seen, thats not God.

Because God is love.  When I offend, I apologize.  Whether its received or not.  And I know when I am wrong, and I know when the devil is trying to just condemn me.  

And it grieves me, when I have apologized, but its thrown in my face, at a later time, to remind me, of what I did.  And thats not forgiving someone.  Love, covers a multitude of sins.

But the only way, its cleared is by repenting to God first, who gives you the spirit, of love, to be humble, to apologize to the person you offended. 

I never, would ever, want someone to apologize to me, because I made them.  But because they saw the error of their ways, and want to get right with God.  And with me.  Because love, was the motivator.  

Because Christ is their savior.

PREVENTING EVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3666.jpgPREVENTING EVIL…. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez
 
We always wonder why evil happens. But I believe with all my being, if we submit to God, resist the enemy, we can be delivered. Remember when Moses put the blood of the Lamb, on the houses, death, left them? Well the same thing happens when we apply the Lamb of God. Jesus. Plead the blood of Jesus always. But we have our part. Be totally submitted to God, be in obedience, resist the enemy and he will flee. God will dispatch angels on your behalf. Trust God, let us pray. May this remind us all to be closer to God, and more faithful in our walk. Psalms 91 was written by Moses, and he knew the importance of pleading the blood.
 
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-16‬ ‭KJV
 

LONGING FOR TRUTH AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3137LONGING FOR TRUTH….AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD….. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
I think all of us long for truth, theres that part of us, that just wants straight answers. No bull, no games, no compromises.
That really does come from a spirit, of truth, that can only come from God. You need to know there are two spirits, in this. Good, and evil. Remember the tree of good and evil? God did not want us eating from that tree. Eve, and Adam well they did eat of it. And it was sin, in Gods eyes.
Disobedience.
Today, still holds true, good and evil. And He does not want us to eat from that. We need to search for the truth, His truth. We have to be careful, because we can be so easily deceived, by religion, false bibles, lies, wolves in sheep clothing.
The root of that comes from the enemy, the devil, and he wants to deceive you, and keep you from truth.
Friends, search for the truth. For God, to please Him, for yourself, for your family, for just a sense of knowing whats right and wrong.
Beware of the traps from the enemy. Beware of lies.
Get hungry for truth. To be fulfilled. I still want Gods plan, away from the sin. I don’t want the sin, because I know how it can steal from your very own blessings…..
Repentance, is the only way I know we can get it. Humbleness, love…..Don’t let anything steal truth from you. Don’t let the tickling of ears, become your distraction.
Go for truth. Get it, King James truth, and grow….in truth. To be fulfilled. To renew your spirit. To understand, to gain wisdom. Truth, will never let you down. Don’t deny truth, or you become your own enemy.
