REPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3395.jpgREPENTANCE IS THE GREATEST WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY……By Elena Ramirez

I truly believe, that REPENTANCE is one of the greatest gifts God gives us. A tool, to not neglect. It is the greatest weapon against the enemy. It cleans the slate. It makes us humble. It stops the penalty of sin, that the enemy uses against us, to have a legal right to attack us.

And its all because of what Christ did on the cross for us. Don’t forget about this gift. Don’t neglect what Christ did on the cross, and yes, even after you accepted Christ as Lord and savior.

Repentance, will ensure your Salvation. I believe in it daily. Like an apple a day, keeps the doctor away. Repentance, will keep your Salvation in tact. We all sin, folks, we all come short of the glory of God. Thats King James scriptural.

The blood of Jesus, will not cover you, if you sin. You will have to start all over. Sin, will separate you from God. So repent.

The enemy always looks for a way to deceive us. But again, the fear of God will bring us to repent. To stay right in the sight of Christ.

Please remember Repentance, when you pray:

NOW I REJOICE, NOT THAT YE WERE MADE SORRY, BUT THAT YE SORROWED TO REPENTANCE: FOR YE WERE MADE SORRY AFTER A GODLY MANNER, THAT YE MIGHT RECEIVE DAMAGE BY US IN NOTHING.

FOR GODLY SORROW WORKETH REPENTANCE TO SALVATION, NOT TO BE REPENTED OF: BUT THE SORROW OF THE WORLD WORKETH DEATH.

FOR BEHOLD THIS SELFSAME THING, THAT YE SORROWED AFTER A GODLY SORT, WHAT CAREFULNESS IT WROUGHT IN YOU, YEA, WHAT CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, YEA, WHAT INDIGNATION, YEA, WHAT FEAR, YEA, WHAT VEHEMENT DESIRE, YEA, WHAT ZEAL, YEA, WHAT REVENGE! IN ALL THINGS YE HAVE APPROVED YOURSELVES TO BE CLEAR IN THIS MATTER.

II CORINTHIANS 7:9-11 KJV.

Blessings, and love,

People want true love.  And God wants them to have faith and yes true love.

I can show you how to have both.  I give very clear instructions in my book.

What “proof” do you have that any of these secret principles work?

That you write about in your book?  HOW TO HAVE FAITH MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I felt that question over, and over again….

And this is my answer.

This morning the Lord spoke to my heart, and I could sense, in my heart, that people need proof. He spoke to my heart, and told me, not everybody believes.  If it was that easy, every one would believe.  Sometimes you do have to prove it to people.

I am trying to get people to see, these secret principles that work for me, but faith, is very personal, and sometimes very private. I want people to see who I was before Christ, but also who I am now. And God has made all the difference. I give Him glory.  With praise, and honor with great thankfulness.  I am very grateful for every blessing God has given me.  He has proven Himself to me, with love.  I don’t doubt  who He is, or what He can do, any more.  All things are possible with God.

FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE.  LUKE 1:37.  King James version.

The whole book is proof because I know. This is why I write about these principles.  That I call “secret principles.”

But if you are looking for “fruit” as proof. My marriage, to my husband is evident. I have true love.

I have a marriage, that God has blessed. And there is a reason, why it is blessed. I give instruction, and yes definite reasons why in my book.  And I will be honest, if everybody did this, it would make it a lot easier.  It would be something that could be handed from one generation to the next.  It would be the missing link.  I know this “secret.”

You see, I understand, how it feels to be lonely, broken, and lost. For many years, I thought, I missed the boat, plane, and train to true love. I thought I was doomed to not find true love. I walked alone for many, many years. Yes, I prayed for a mate. And God brought my husband, but what we did and did not do, has brought an everlasting love to our marriage.

I call it a Faith Secret principle to true love. It is not something, to be honest, I wanted to write about. But God instructed me to write about it. And I did, and this is the proof, I have. I have been married for over 25 years, and very happily. And I do attest this secret, to our success. In fact I know it. This is the proof.

I want you to grow in who you are, in Christ, and yes, I do emphasize these principles, but if you are looking for true love, yes, I have the proof in my book, and I share it. It is chapter 26. THE SECRET PRINCIPLE OF MY FAITH TO TRUE LOVE.

Yes the proof is also who I am in Christ, and how I have changed, but that may not mean anything to you. Because you cannot see beyond your own loneliness, and loss of having someone to share life with. And I understand that. I was there, alone, broken and very lonely. I know the difference.

If you are lonely, and broken, and you have given up hope, about finding true love, I want to encourage you. Or if you are in a relationship, that needs to be fixed, this remedy can work as well.

This can change. And yes, if you follow my instructions in this, that is in my book. I know you will find success and happiness in your relationship. And yes true love. This proof may be what you need, for your own life to change. For you and your love interest. Yes it is my secret to true love, and it is proof to me, God has principles. And I obeyed.

Living happily ever after….

Thanks and blessings…to God almighty, Lord I am so grateful, and for my salvation too.  How great you are.

I also want to thank all who have taken time out of their day to read this.  May God show you His love. I pray for others.  To know Jesus, to know His love.  To know true love, because it is obtainable, and to yes, have faith.

A PLEA TO THE JUDAS OF HEART~”WHAT IF JUDAS HAD GONE TO THE CROSS OF CHRIST?”


What if Judas had repented, and saw what he did, and repented at the cross of our Lord, Jesus?  How would his life have changed?  For he would not have committed suicide….

I write this, as a plea, to the “Judas of Heart.”  To that person, who feigns innocence, who promises, this and that, but who is disloyal in heart.  To the one, who looks for opportunities, to betray someone.

Who hates, yet, when near you.  They give kisses, like Judas did.  Who might, even say, I am a Christian.  But has ulterior motives, and plans, to deceive, to hurt.  You Judas heart, are a liar.  Even here, I plead, the blood of Jesus, to the “Judas of Heart.”

I write this to plead with you, to stop hurting, yourself, and others.  To stop, betraying, those, who trust you.  To stop, selling others, for profit, or for “thirty stinking” dollars, that will damn you for eternity.  I don’t pull any stops here, in expressing this, I call you for what you are.  Because you need to see, this.  But I pray to do so in truth, and yes love.

If Jesus, could have talked to Judas, after betraying Him, He would have said.  “Judas, I forgive you.”  He would have counseled this disciple, He had called a friend.  But as we all know, Christ did not have that chance.  And He was crucified, for our sins.  For the sins, of Judas, if he had repented.  And not committed suicide.  Judas took his own life, he knew, tortured, what he had done.  He took a permanent way out of life, as the solution.  But it led to hell.  For, he had betrayed, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords.

His betrayal, hurt his friend.  Christ. Yet this was the plan of God.

But, Judas, had seen, the miracles, Christ had done.  He had seen love, in action.  The face of love, as it was in Christ.  The beauty of who He was.  Judas saw all that, and yet, in jealousy, hate, or whatever it was, that was evil within him, he betrayed Christ. And, sold him out for thirty stinking coins of gold.  How could he do such a heinous thing?  One might ask themself.

Today, I want to plead with you.  And if you are reading this, it may be you.  You see, who you are.  For you know yourself, better then anyone.  You know, how charming you can be.  You know, you have a personality, and demeanor, that is very attractive, or maybe not.  Maybe you are so intimidated, by people, or success of others, and you see, your inadequacies.  That either way, you cannot bear, to see others do well, or you feel like you have to have the upper hand.  It kills you, within, to see others excel, and they take the glory from you.  Sound familar?

Thats satan within you.  He hated, God.  He hated to see God, shine, with all the glory.  So much, because he was an angel, that was the glory, he wanted it all for himself.  So he betrayed God.  He so very much, wanted to cancel the plans of God, that he disguised himself, as a snake, then.  A serpent, and caused Adam and Eve, to sin, against God.  By making them believe a lie.  If only, they had gone to God, sought counsel from Him, then the sins, of this world, the curse, mankind received from this disobedience, would have been avoided.

Maybe that is why I write to you.  To avoid, the curse.  To avoid, the wrath of God.  To avoid, a future, that has truly no hope.  When Judas did what he did, by betraying Jesus, he wanted to return the dirty coins, he had received.  But it was too late.  They took Christ, beat him, spat at him, and made him suffer.  What a heavy guilt, Judas must have had.

Judas, could have avoided, his downfall.  Even his lack of hope, by that he committed suicide.  He could have saved His life, then, and for eternity.  He could have stopped, and seen what evil he was doing.  But he did not.  What if he had, seen. And stopped, and did not betray Christ?  It would probably be a different story.  Or would it?

Yes, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  But if only…..If only he had repented.  If only he had ran to the cross, even as our Lord, was nailed to that tree, that place, that tormented our Lord, for our sins…If only, he had cried out to God for forgiveness.  We would have seen by histories account, a man changed.  But he knew not who he betrayed.  Christ, the son of God.

Judas, would have received redemption.  He would have been forgiven.  Christ loved him.  And even as I write this, and I cry, I feel the sadness, and I understand, the pain, Christ felt, in that betrayal.

Yet, He knew, Christ knew, he had to go to the cross for ALL of our sins.  So He did.  He willingly went to the cross, to take the curse, to suffer, die, and to go to the pits of hell, to get the keys, so the devil would not have a legal right to take us there.  By Christs obedience, to God, in love.  We are free.

For everyone, who does not come to Christ, who denies him, knowing He is the way, the truth, and the life.  Christ grieves for you.  He cries for you, because you choose to be disloyal.  Because you choose to have a Judas, heart.

You choose the ways of satan.  And he knows, the time of reckoning, is at hand.  Either when your time of life is over, or when He returns.  He knows.  All will stand before Him, and they will have to give an account of their life.  And they will either reap, hell or heaven.

Judas of heart, I plead with you.  Stop, see what you are doing.  Restore, return, that which you have stolen from.  Or been a false witness.  Go to the ones you have hurt.  Repent.  Repent before a holy God, and make right, what you have done wrong.  Its not too late.  You may think it is.  But it is not.

You may have to pay the consequences, of your sin.  You may lose, what you loved.  Or you may not.  But if you make it right, with your soul, as the goal, you can be victorious.

Judas, of heart, I plead with you.  For even as I write this, I understand, how it feels when you trust someone, and they give you the kisses, of Judas, and they betray you.  I have felt that pain many times.  Too many, that I don’t even want to recount.  Yet, I have forgiven.  For Christ forgave me of my sins.  So I choose to forgive.  As the word says.  Matthew 6:14 For if ye forgive men their tresspasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  

And even now, God revealed to me, last night in a dream.  Someone, I have been kind to, someone who has feigned, “friendship” this someone, has betrayed me, by my works.  By that which I write.  I had a dream, that I fought that person.  And then I woke up, and prayed, “Lord, the battle is yours.”  I felt so weary, after this dream.  I prayed for that soul.  I pray, they would see, the error of this. Stealing others works, other writers hard earned, works, they put to computers.  In this computer age, their are so many opportunities, for others to steal.  But God knows.

Maybe thats why I write this to, to plead with you Judas of heart.  To plead, you to stop.  The wrath of God, is not to be messed with, or to be thought of lightly, for God is not mocked.  He loves His children.  He blesses those, who bless us.  But he curses, those who curse us.  Judas, of heart, you need to see this.  Before it is too late.  Go to God, make good, from your betraying…..Repent, restore.

And change your mind, your heart, to a heart like Christ, before it is too late.  Go to the cross.  Christ is the only one, who can change your heart.  He is the only one.  Don’t make the mistake, before it is too late, like Judas did.  Go to the cross, and cry out to the only one, who can save your soul.

And even here, Judas of heart, who claimed to be my friend.  I forgive you.  My heart breaks because I trusted you.  But I forgive you.  May God have mercy on your soul.

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

Please Note:  I do not know the future.  I have dreams, that have not been fulfilled, yet.  Perhaps they will be.  But, if someone, can see this and see the vision, of this, and has the resources, I pray, you would make a movie  out of this.  What if Judas had gone to the cross?  The story would be different.  It could be someone’s lifeline……To Christ now.

This person, I describe, as the Judas in this post,  is an acquaintance.  Someone I do not know, by spending time, with them etc.  Yet, we have communicated.  I have no proof, nor do I choose to pursue, a battle in this.  I am just sad, I had this dream.  I would pray, it would not be true.  But if it is, I just put it in Gods hands.   I have recently discovered, on one of my blogs, someone posted an ad, without my authorization.  Someone who used the blog, as an outlet, for them to make money.  This is being investigated. I don’t know if it is this person, or not.  But again, I trust God, and will rest in that. I just find it ironic, I had this dream.  At the timing of this.  Thank you, and  Blessings…..Elena

Father, I thank you and praise you, almighty, sovereign, good, and kind Lord.  I thank you that you change a heart.  That you changed mine.  I was a Judas Heart, before I met you.  Before you, showed me truly, what you did on the cross.  For me, and for all of us who believe.  We all are, before you.  No one wants to admit that.  No one wants to remember, our sins.  Or that, we offend a Holy God, by our sins.  But, how merciful you are, and compassionate.  Lord, the more, and more, I realize, how precious my salvation is, I never want to sin against you.  Lord, I know you have been guiding me, teaching me, showing me, love, and forgiveness, and a trust, to grow in your ways.  It amazes me.  But I do pray for the “Judas of Heart” even here, and pray, you help this person reading this, who sees, truth, in what I am writing.  That the devil, will not steal the plan you have for this person.  Even here, again, in this prayer, I plead the blood of Jesus, over this person, and I pray, you bring your love to them. That they would go to the cross.  Judas was not able to.  But this person can.  Let them see your love.  May the tears, wash the sins, and the hate, and the betrayal, and make this person, a son, or a daughter, of God.  Thank you Lord.  In Jesus name. Amen

WHEN GOD GIVES YOU AN ASSIGNMENT OF LOVE….


God does give us assignments of love.  It could be anything, that he may test us in, or to validate His word in us.

It could be a mission, God places on your heart, something, that will make you His hands and feet, maybe even His mouth, to speak a word.  But to do something in love.

Helping someone, feeding someone, giving water to someone.  Making your money, work, for His Kingdom.  So you give, from your heart, with love.  An assignment of love, from God, can be anything, and when you are His child, you will not only be tested in this, but you will hear His voice, and know, you have been given an assignment of love.  You know, you have to obey.

God gave me one today.  He gave me an assignment of love.  To walk in love, with someone, who was rude to me.

Did I expect HIS assignment, or even this persons rudeness?  No.  But I know His voice.  And I just felt him say, “let it go”... And my little assignment of love, may not mean anything to anybody but to God, me, and maybe the person, God has assigned me to love.

It may produce fruit, but thats not for me to know really.  I am just called to water the plant, with love.  And most likely, this person, will never acknowledge it.  Or love me in return.  But, thats o.k.  I have come to expect it.

After all I know this persons track record in this.  But I know, that I know, I must do my part in love.   I must love this person, pray for this person, be kind to this person, be cordial to this person, and all out of love.

But today, as I prayed for this person.  I felt peace.  I felt like old wounds did not hurt any more.  Even with other people.  You see, Christ told us, that when we are His children.  We are to love.  We are to forgive.  We are to know, if they hated him, and they did, for they crucified him.  They could do it to us too.  The pharisees, hated Jesus.  They were “religious” people.  And I always test the spirits, to see if they are love…..if they are not.  I wonder if they are a “pharisee” spirit.

Anyway, the reason, I write this, is maybe you can relate….  To anyone, who has been mean to you…From that snobby person in church, or that rude and aloof person, you see, at church, or anywhere, and they totally disregard you.  They don’t talk to you, and if they do, it is condescending, it is patronizing.  You are taking up their space…Yikes.  And excuuuuuuuse me!  Or it could be a family member.  Whoever…again, just forgive, and love, and walk in love.  Let the hurts all go.

This could be any where.  Including your job site, etc.  Well, maybe God is giving you a “Love Assignment” too.

I want to encourage you.  Walk in love, with that person.  It may hurt so very much, because you knew what you got, was not what you deserved.  You see it clearly, you are being snubbed.  Its not your imagination.  They are either jealous of you, and giving place to the devil, in these acts, that are not of love.  But you know.… A person, can pick up on those mean, and hurtful of all vibes. And it hurts, I know.

But we are to imitate our savior, and his example in love.  Protect yourself, with Gods love….and go to Him. And love….

Look at Christ.  Christ loved us so much, that he obeyed God the father, and went to the cross for us.  He took each beating, he took, each stripe, and they nailed my savior on the cross, for our sins.

The devil, thought, it would be a victory, by destroying the son of God.  But what a dummy the devil is.  This was Gods plan, because He gave His son, power, to be resurrected.  So Christ, went to hell, after He was crucified, and on that third day, probably gave the devil, a black eye, and took the keys from hell.  To set us free!  Hallelujah!!! (Giving the devil a black eye, is not scriptural)

But this is scripture, don’t give evil for evil.  Recompense to no man evil for evil.  Provide things honest in the sight of all men.  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, or give place unto wrath for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.  Romans 12:17-19

And I am not advocating giving anyone a black eye literally.  I must especially, make that clear, because some of my friends, can attest, I was a fighter.  And in the natural, before I knew Christ, if someone was mean to me, or a bully, or was just plain mean, I would have given them a piece of my mind, at least…..

But…I am talking about Love, the love of a forgiving and kind Father.  That God is. I am talking about my savior, my friend, my counselor, my provider, and healer, and so much more.  He is love.

Christ did all that for us.  He is the greatest example of love.  And when I think of who I was again, the fighter, the loser, the kid, who missed it….I think of what Christ did for me.  And all I want to do is love.  Because I know, at what a great sacrifice His life was to give to me, to you, to all of us.

I don’t want to leave this world, hating anyone.  Or being wounded, by old pains.  For sometime, I will stand before my creator.  I want to keep my armor on, and quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  And the only way, I can, is by being love, as He is love.  Turning the cheek, the other way, as Christ turned His cheek.

And maybe, because I was a fighter naturally, I know, I have to love supernaturally.  In His love.  I have to be obedient.  So, if this person, and I ever communicate again.  Which I doubt.  But if we do, I will be nice, I will be cordial, I will be forgiving, and kind.  Because God gave me an assignment of love.

I also know, in this assignment.  Whenever, the Lord, brings this person to my mind, I will pray for this person.  If this person needed me, I would be there.  Because I know my assignment.  And I need to say this, as a vow, I will not speak negatively of this person, or undermine this person, and their ability.  Or who they are.  I will not speak against this person, in any way.  Because I know, the Holy spirit hears….

Anyway, God gave me an assignment to love, and I know I have to pass this test of love.  You just know…that you know, you have to be obedient to Love.  God is love.

Just my Thoughts….With love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I love you.  Thank you, for giving me this assignment to love.  Would you please help me to do this.  Cause I also know my past track record.  I need help.  Thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen

GIVING SOMEONE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT~SECOND CHANCES…..


I love second chances. I guess, I appreciate them, because God has given me more then a few to be honest.

And it is so easy, especially, as a Christian, to have high standards, and a sense of excellence, because we are children of the King, that we can have judgmental, and snotty, excuse the term, but snobbish, attitudes toward people.

I see, it, I know you see it too. And the thing is, we can let those attitudes get in the way, of serving God, and loving, and yes, they can even hinder our blessings…

I want to give people the benefit of the doubt, as well. I know what it feels like, even in Christian circles, and you are “marked” avoided, and just rejected.

People, are not always loving, kind, nor do they give the benefit of the doubt. To be honest with you, I write this, because I see right now, I need to give someone the benefit of the doubt. I need to walk in love. I need to be compassionate, and forgiving, and tenderhearted, and yes giving that benefit of the doubt, because Christ gives me the benefit of the doubt.

I know myself, and like you, yourself, you may have a tendency to bring out someones, shortcomings. You may do it indirectly, or directly, but there is an attitude about you. That expresses, to you, and to even others, who you are communicating with…..I am better then you! Or I even know better then you. I don’t want to be that way…..Its ugly.

We are all growing on the vine of Christ, at different places. So we are not all in the same place spiritually. And one should never make those kind of comparisons, because it opens the door to evil. God forbid…so I have to do my part too. Walk in love…

Dear one, if others see it. When we are like that…. What does God see? He is not a respecter of persons. He wants us not to be a respecter of persons either. In other words, giving grace to some but not to all. Whats that all about? Love, really is the foundation of who He is. And if we want to grow, we need to stop, and look, and begin seeing. Are we giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Or are we going to judge them, and not give them a second Chance.

A good place to ask….Is that jealousy? Is that pride? Is that the devil, in your thoughts, and you are allowing it?

What would Jesus do?

Just my thoughts, I share this in love, because I need to bring this to the throne of God, and ask for his help to love someone. In obedience, and yes love… And yes, give them a second chance.

Blessings, and much love,

A PRAYER OF HONOR AND HOPE…

Father, I am your servant, and I humble myself before you.  I ask for forgiveness, and just ask for guidance.  Because basically, I am annoyed.  I don’t understand why I feel this way….but I bring it to the obedience of Christ, and I ask you to change this, and help me.  Help me to walk in love with others, and to not compare myself, or to compete, or to even be unhappy, when someone else is rejoicing.  I kind of feel like its gloating, but thats none of my business.  I just don’t want to lose my blessings, or hinder my relationship with you, because I am taking my eyes off of you, and looking at that situation.  I give it to you, and I ask that you bless that person, in all things.  I ask that you bless me too, but I sure do want to please you first.  So that I know, that I know, I am changing, I am growing, I am seeking your truth, and ways….and yes love, by the example of Christ.  Thank you Lord, In Jesus name.  Amen
