WHAT IS A LOST SOUL? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3403.jpg

What is a lost soul?   Hmm…. You know, as a seasoned Christian, I think I can identify it, by my own life.  I can say, I have been lost.  

I have been found.  By Christ. But, I have and had my part in this matter as well.  

I WILL SEEK THAT WHICH WAS LOST, AND BRING AGAIN THAT WHICH WAS DRIVEN AWAY, AND WILL BIND UP THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN, AND WILL STRENGTHEN THAT WHICH WAS SICK; BUT I WILL DESTROY THE FAT AND THE STRONG:  I WILL FEED THEM WITH JUDGMENT.  EZEKIEL 34:16.  KJV.  

A lost soul, is someone who has lost their way, because they are not seeking Christ.  Urgently, and in a relationship.  Not religion.  Please do not confuse religion, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  

I am talking about a moment to moment relationship, and a prayer life, that is constant with Christ.  Seeking truth, from your King James bibles.  I am talking about someone who has seen the error of their ways, and made Christ their Lord and savior.  They believe.  But not only do they believe, they actively pursue Christ.  

And even if you are a Christian, you can get lost, we all can get lost from time to time.  

And the thing is, that there is an enemy, who only wants to deceive, and lead you away from Christ.  The enemy does not want you to seek the light.  

The enemy does not want you to seek truth, seek the way, the truth, and the life in Christ.  (John 14:6 KJV) The enemy, wants a soul to be lost.  This is where the enemy wants to lure you into his kingdom of darkness, and that is to be eternally lost.  

I feel the urgency lately, to first to speak to my brothers and sisters in Christ, to implore you to guard your salvation.  Cherish it.  Remember what Christ did on the cross for you. Be humble, be love, forget about the pride, throw away those things that corrupt the inner person.  Do not lose your way.  DO NOT GET LOST! Be repentant daily….

Remember the way, is narrow…

ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIGHT GATE FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT:  BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT.  MATTHEW 7:13-14.  KJV. 

Do you see that last sentence from my King James Bible?  It says that there are few that find it.  Few….  Are you one of those few, who may not find it, because you are lost?

Friend, only you can determine where you are with Christ.  Only you know where you have been?  Spiritually, in the light or darkness?  We can lose our moral compass, and get lost.

But I implore you, if you have first not made Christ your Lord, and savior, you are in darkness.  This is not a joke.  This is something, I hope you read, and take to heart.  

Because the bottom line is, there is a line, we can cross into light or darkness.  And you do not want to play with your salvation.  You do not want to lose it, and you do not want to lose a chance to gain, eternal security with Christ.   Why do I say this, because again, I have had spiritual battles, where the enemy wants to deceive me.  

A little history, here, as a testimony.  I accepted Christ as Lord and savior, when I was young.  But, I got “Lost” I played with my salvation.  When I got older, I sinned, I wanted the ways of the world.  I hit the bottom of the barrel so to speak, and not every body may do that, but I thank God I did, because it did teach me to value my salvation.  

It taught me to seek Christ, whole heartily, and with every ounce of my being.  Because I was a “backslider”  I truly believe, if I had died, during that time, before, hell would have been my destination.  I would have lost my salvation.  

So do not argue with a soul, who has been there, done that.  I know.  Salvation can be lost.  But I seek to always obey God.  By His commandments.  Do you?  

I HAVE GONE ASTRAY LIKE A LOST SHEEP; SEEK THY SERVANT: FOR I DO NOT FORGET THY COMANDMENTS.  PSALM 119:176.  KJV.  

Some people do not hit hard, like I did.  Not all people are the same, not all experiences are the same.  But the deception is, you may think life is fine and dandy, but you are lost.  You may have everything going for you, but you are “lost.”  Friend, I implore you, whether you accepted Christ as Lord and savior, or not, do not lose your way.  Do not play with your salvation.  

Now the deception is this, that comes from the enemy.  He wants you to think once saved is always saved.  But its not.  Because sin, separates us from God.  This is King James scriptural.  Look up that scripture.  In a King James Bible.  Without repentance, that sin, will separate you from heaven, when you leave this earth.  

The enemy also wants to deceive you by the Bible you use, so use a King James, it is holy and anointed.  Friend, the deception is in the changing of the words, and they are not Gods words, they are words that come from hell itself.  I have made the comparisons I know.  

I implore you, if you are lost, repent.  Repent, and acknowledge to God your sins.  Your pride.  Your short comings.  Yes, because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. You see, we just don’t know when we are going to leave this earth.  Obedience to God is so important.  

And I just know, for, I just see the deception.  I see, the “lost” world we live in.  

I see Pastors, and Christians, that are in “la-la land”.  They really are not aware, nor do they care for those who do not know truth, and they are not seeking the “lost” as Christ called us to do.  They are silent.  They do not have the urgency to bring people to the light.  They do not witness, to others.  They do not warn others.  The enemy has done a number on so many, because they do not want to judge.  

Quit confusing judging with warning a soul!  We are called to judge righteously.  And we are called to warn. See Ezekiel 33.  

And if you are not sharing the gospel, trying to win a soul, you may be lost yourself.  

Yes, think about that….. 

BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST; IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM.  FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD, AND OURSELVES YOUR SERVANTS FOR JESUS SAKE.  FOR GOD WHO COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS, HATH SHINED IN OUR HEARTS, TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST.  

II CORINTHIANS 4:3-6.  KJV.

We must reach out to the lost.  We must make sure we do not get lost ourselves.  We must beware of the enemies antics.  For he does come to kill, steal, and destroy.  We must be totally submitted to God in fear of God, for the bottom line is, he is the one who determines whether or not we can enter into His kingdom.  Yes fear God.  

Friends, only you can ask yourself this?  

Are you a lost soul?

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.

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?

Writing for the glory of God, is the greatest joy, I receive in my gifts and callings. I have always been able to express myself, via writing. It comes naturally to me. I do not get “writers block” because as I submit to God, and His truth according to my King James Bible, the insight, and inspiration comes so naturally to me. My mission, is to bring glory to God in my writing, and speak a word of truth to the Lost, and yes inspire Gods children. So whenever, I have a chance to write for my Lord, I feel honored, that He would choose me to be an expression of His Kingdom, and love.

What do your fans mean to you?

I am always honored, if people see God through my writing. But I want to be careful. Glory and honor, goes only to God. Sure, I enjoy, being favored, and having people be inspired, by my writings. But I don’t want them to see me. I want them to see God, in everything I write. I want God to be so honored and exalted by anything I do or write. Jesus gave us the ultimate sacrifice of love, and I just want people to see His love and truth in my writings.

Tell us about your blogs.

I have a few blogs on the internet. But my most used, and successful blog is entitled: “Elena’s Just My Thoughts:…. Here I write posts that can have an impact on a person, searching for truth, answers, and inspiration. Subject matter can relate to faith, as well as issues that concern family matters, prayer, and so much more. Go to these links if you want to see more.  And yes sign up for the other blogs.  Feel free to share this post with your friends as well, so they can get inspiration too.  

Who are your favorite authors?

I am biased, and I will say this, my favorite author is God, and the inspiration I get from my King James Bible. HE is not the author of confusion. I CORINTHIANS 14:33 FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS. (There is a hint in this, perhaps a riddle, but the truth of who God is, as a writer can bring it to truth. Ask me, and I will tell you the answer to the riddle. To eliminate confusion.)So, yes, in further contemplation of this question, there are many outstanding, and wonderful authors, that do inspire me. But I am careful to be cautious, in who I recommend, when it comes to spiritual matters. And who I recommend as authors. I have seen some who I so admired, and then they may do something, that may go against the truth or they will water down scripture, etc. So, lets just leave this as it is……

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

Hope in God. Inspiration, from the Lord, that tells me, no matter what I am feeling, or going through, God can change my circumstances. I suppose this is why I wrote my book. “How to Have Faith ~ My Secret Principles of faith with a true and living God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Because I have been at the bottom of the barrel, I have been down and out. I have learned to have faith, and even the hard way. But God….He has taught me never, ever to let go. Because with God all things are possible. With just this scripture, I can have inspiration to start my day. And not only survive, but thrive. BEHOLD I AM THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH: IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME? JEREMIAH 32:27.

When you’re not writing, how do you spend your time?

My relationship with God, my family, and home, are the most pleasurable things I find in life. Its not always the big things, but the quiet time, and inspiration I get to refresh myself, in my time, that pours so much into me. Spending time, with true Christian friends, means so much to me. At this time in my life, I have weeded out friends, who were masquerading in friendship. So when I spend time with friends, who appreciate me, and love me as well as my family does. I have a sense of Gods fellowship in this time as well. It is love….

When did you first start writing?

I began to see my writing skills, when I worked in the corporate world. Whenever, I had a need, I would submit a proposal, or I would document my thoughts. I began to see, that I could get results by my writing. The power of the pen, is a gift, that I do not want to use, for anything, but for things that are good, and right, and yes inspired by God Almighty. To speak to someone who is hurting, or broken. To bring light, and hope, in a world, that needs truth. I never want to hide truth. I never want to give place to the enemy, when I can share what God says. So I write. I write what Gods word says, from my King James Bible, and that is my foundation, for anything I write. What does Father God say about it? Ask me, in my blogs, or for my book. I will try to help. The Bible really does have an answer. Yes…. Truth, can be expressed by writing in such a way, that it can leave someone breathless, set free, and in awe, totally inspired.

Are you available to speak publicly to discuss your book?

Yes, I am available to go to your church congregation, ladies group, or business function. I can give my testimony, and share what God has done for me. I can tell you, why my book, “How To Have Faith, My Secret Principles of Faith, is based on a true and living God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.” It was written, from all that I have gone through, and I have learned. These “Secret” Principles I have learned, may not be a secret to some, yet to some they are. I just know, that we all need to grow and learn, and yes I still am learning, but one must choose to grow, and yes tweak your faith. If it is even just one thing I can pass down to someone to learn about faith, and what pleases God this will be worth the investment of the book. And isn’t that what it really is all about? Pleasing God, so we can get answers to prayer. To develop our relationship with God. And yes increase our faith. I know that I know there is a God, a wonderful King, and savior. Jesus Christ, and yes a Holy Spirit that does know us inside and out. And there is so much more. Its not about religion, it is about developing a relationship according to His “principles” to have faith. Go to the link for “my profile” that I have for ordering my book, (paper back) to e-mail me. Or my Facebook page. There you will get updates and posts of inspiration as well. You will need to request my “speakers packet.” And yes please, download the book here at Smashwords.

In Conclusion and Please Note New Price Reduction:

As of today, March 13th, 2014. I have lowered the price from $17.00 to $10.00. Why to ten dollars? Because a tenth is Holy unto the Lord. Leviticus 27:32. I have been mindful of people and their budgets, and the price of a book. Where truly I understand, your not getting a book, to hold in your hands.
You are getting knowledge, insight into God. From your reading device. And because I know the value of these “secret Principles” I know the value, exceeds monetary expectations. But it really is up to you. What your spiritual growth and desire is to pay for such knowledge. To me, all that God has taught me, I cannot put a price tag on. But I am grateful, and I want to help others. But, I have invested a lot of time, and prayer, into this book. And God guided me through each page, that I wrote. I know, that I know, “Secret Principles” that could help someone. To grow, to understand Gods ways.
It is always a choice to grow, or not to. This book will instruct you, but give you true insight, to inspire you in the goodness of God, so your faith can grow. It is for the serious of heart. For the person, longing to know God, and to see beyond spiritually in Christ. And to avoid grieving the Holy Spirit. This is so very important to understanding Gods principles. That to some it is a secret. And they have no idea. They may be deceived, and I talk about what one can do to “Renew The Mind In Christ.”
I encourage you to read the free, first five percent, of pages that I have allowed to get a better understanding of my heart, and yes Gods heart in these “Secret Principles.” Click the bottom link to direct you to the sample. You will want to order it. And if you do not you will never know. Yes, what God could have shown you through this book. And I do not say that to be arrogant, but very humble, knowing the gift God gave me as I wrote this book. I know my Lord, I know Him, and His beautiful Spirit. I know His truth, the Holy King James Bible, I know the author, and He does have standards, that many do not understand the principles to His ways. But I do. I know His heart, in Love. Faith pleases God, and He showed me. I receive it and I share it in His love. Obedient, to Christ.
This book will show someone how important Salvation is. It is a great book to give to an unbeliever, as a gift for someone searching, for answers. You can buy it for someone, who needs faith. And bless them. And you can buy it for yourself, and bless yourself. This book will not return void. Even if it is one thing, that is revealed….I know, it can show you. HOW TO HAVE FAITH ~ MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

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

This morning the Lord spoke to my heart, and I could sense, in my heart, that people need proof. 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. 

The whole book is proof because I know. 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. 

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, 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. And yes true love. This proof may be what you need, for your own life to change. 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 Smashwords, and to all who have taken time out of their day to read this.
