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,

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.

IRON SHARPENS IRON~ FRIENDS ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER


Iron, sharpens iron.  So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.  Proverbs 27:17.  

Not everyone, has true friends.  But when you do, you count them as a gift from God.  I feel blessed, that I have a few good friends.  They are gifts from God.  Some, I see, and talk to here and there, and some, I don’t even know, all of them, by their faces, in person, but they are friends.  They bless me, and I pray, I bless them.  Like iron, sharpening iron.

Everyone, has a gift, within.  Some may see it, more then others.  The wonderful thing, is that friends, can draw it out of you.  They know how to “push” the right buttons, to inspire you, motivate you, and encourage you.

I like to do that, with my friends, and even some enemies to be honest.  Because I want to be the kind of person, that speaks truth, and sees the best in everyone.  I want to encourage people.  In the love of Christ.  Thats, one of the reasons,why I write…

Anyway, I know some people, who do not like to compliment others, because they feel, it will give someone a big head, or if anything, because they are jealous.

They see, the potential, the ability, and instead, it makes them look at themselves, and think, they are not adequate, or they are not gifted.  Which is the furthest thing from the truth.  Because God blesses us all.  But one must see it.  I have learned, and I am not perfect at this, but I have quit trying to compare myself to anybody.  I see my potential in Christ.

For, you will find, less, and better people in this world, in all forms of life, gifts, and attributes.  I could get caught up on the thought, that there are better writers then me. Prettier, people, smarter people….and on and on, and on.

But, comparing yourself, to anyone, is just a waste of time, and really, a ploy from the devil, to get you off track, and get your mind on “me, me, me” so you will not be fulfilled by God.  We all know his track record, he had the mindset, that it was all about him.  Thats pride, thats ego, and that comes from the devil.  We want to be careful, not to fall into that trap.

Anyway, call it maturity, or old age, I refuse, to do that, with my self-esteem anymore.  I do not want to waste my time, on just thinking about me.  I want to keep my eyes on Jesus.  On his countenance.  On his glory.  If I don’t I will miss it.  So if I compare myself, I will lose my focus.  For,  I am a child of God, just as much as the other person is.  I do not want to be my own enemy.  So, I try to be positive.  But, I am human. I do make mistakes, but I do not want to be beating myself up.  Or others.

And sometimes, though, we do need to sharpen each other.  Especially, concerning who we are in Christ.  By example, by love, by Gods word.  Truth…We do need to draw out, the hidden gifts, and callings of one another.  We need to help each other.  Being patient with one another, compassionate, and appreciative, of others gifts, abilities, and attributes.

I have a friend, a very good friend, who I love dearly, but the one thing that appealed to me, about her immediately, was her generosity.  (To everyone, and including me.)  She always, gives from her heart.  And, to share, her blessings, totally blew me away. It was extravagant, and made one notice.  So I am totally, inspired by her, myself, to be a giver.  Well, thats how it works.

When we sharpen, the countenance of one another.  We come out being better, people, by doing things, that reflect Christ.  Christ was a giver, my friend is a giver.  That has sharpened, my sense, to be a giver.   I want to be the kind of person, that draws out the best, of someone.  Not the worst.

When I know something about someone, and they reveal their pet peeve to me, I consider it.  I don’t want to “push” that button, to make them angry, or hurt them. Or bring out the worst in them.  It would be evil, to have that kind of knowledge, and use something about them, to irk them.

Yet, there are people, who will take knowledge, or your history, and purposely, try to hurt you.  Or there are people, who may have knowledge, to help you, and instead, they withold it.  So you will not get the benefit.  I just want to say, that again is evil.  Do you know that,what you reap is what you sow?  In other words, “What goes around, comes around.”  You will get yours….whatever it is you give in life.  It is a principle, like what goes up, must come down.

Anyway, so when that happens, thats what they know, and thats what they have learned, and practiced.  Sadly, so, sometimes, it is hard to trust people.

But, I want to encourage you, to be someone, who sees the best in others.  To not hold back, a compliment, or an opportunity, to sharpen your friends, countenance, gifts and callings etc.  Encourage one another, in Christ, by the word, and be the kind of friend, that is loyal, true, and always a friend.  And so very, importantly, and I cannot let this pass.  PRAY FOR YOUR FRIENDS!

I have had friends, that just went away, the friendship was dissolved.  But in my heart, I will always love them, and pray for them, and pray, God bless them.  I just wont be able to encourage them, or sharpen their countenance, because they made the choice to leave.

I admit, myself, I have left friends, because they were not a good influence.  But I still love them, in my heart.  A friend loves at all times.  Proverbs 17:17.  Anyway, Be a friend, who is true, who will be there in any need.  And then see, the blessing, of that person in return, and see yourself changed.  See yourself, at the best of your ability.

If anything, be your own best friend, and sharpen yourself.  Never forget, God is your best friend.  Christ will, never leave you or forsake you.  Even if others do.  Christ won’t. Hold onto that, and let it make you the best, you can be.  The word of God, is sharper, then any two-edged sword.  Let it sharpen you to be the best.

I tell you this as a friend, and I do not even know you….

Just my thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I thank you, that you sent Christ, to be the greatest of friends.  A friend, that will never leave or forsake me.  A friend, who will counsel me, and guide me.  A friend, who protects me, and guards my heart.  By your truth, Father.  Lord, I want to be a good friend, one, that will sharpen, the countenance of my friend, to help my friends, be the best that they can be.  Lord, I want to be a friend, to your friends.  And an enemy to your enemy.  I want to please you, in this called “friendship.”  Lord, may everything, I do be a reflection of Christ.  In His love, His compassion, and in His truth.  I want to speak truth, like He did.  But always in Love.  So, love would be magnified.  For you are Love Father.  Thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen

SELFISHNESS IS YOUR ENEMY AS A LIAR


Selfishness is your enemy as a Liar.  Because it denies you the truth, to grow in Christ.  It prohibits your growth, because darkness, is evident, and is keeping out the light of God.  And one cannot grow without his truth being evident, and his light.  Which is the word of God.

Selfishness, can make someone, be their own worst enemy.

As I mature in Christ, I have come to identify, one enemy of a Christian is “Selfishness.”  When you break up the word, into syllables, the first part is “self.”  Self, is the flesh, and when we react to things, by our flesh, or by self, we are showing characteristics, that are selfish.

The devil was “Self”  all he wanted was to please himself, and from the beginning, we see, how, his intention, was to deceive Adam and Eve.  Because he wanted mankind to fall.  He wanted us to miss the blessing God had intended for us.  Because he deceived Eve, to think about “self.”

I have always thought, that God became jealous, for us, because we did not go to him, to verify what the devil said, and Eve took the bait, and ate from the fruit, from the tree of good and evil.  I just wonder, what would have happened, if the truth, had been exposed, from the devils lies?  For, it did bring curses, upon us because of their disobedience.  But Praise God, the blood of Jesus, can cleanse us from that.

So lets expose the lie from the devil, even here, about “selfishness”  by the Holy spirit.

Being selfish is evil.  It is stingy, it is only thinking of one-self, and if one does not see it, and catch it, and change it by Christ.  It will rot someone.  I don’t like selfishness.  I hate it in fact.  And there have been times, when I have seen it, and it really bothers me.

When I have seen it in Christians, I have many times, taken a deep breath and walked away, and then there are times, when I have called someone on it.  Because of any characteristic, that the devil will use, to hurt another Christian, is to leave “selfishness” unchecked.  Here are some characteristics to Selishness.

Ego-someone who is on a power trip, or who has a big attitude about self.  Me, me, me, only thinking of me attitude, that excludes the plans, or even aspirations of others.  Pride-expresses itself, by not giving in, or being humble.  And will not relent, even when the truth is present.  Another characteristic of pride, is noteable, when it comes to sharing ideas, concepts, instructions etc.  And it won’t offer truth.  Greed is another characteristic, of selfishness, it is constantly looking to hoard, or take on more, and more, and more….but not sharing, or living simple.

Because selfishness, has lost control, and it does not see anything else, besides being fulfilled.  That can be with sex, drugs, smoking, anything, that has to constantly be fulfilled by the flesh.  The sad thing is, when we are out of line in this way, the flesh is never fulfilled.  We have to see this on the inside.  The spirit.  Thats why Christ tells us to deny ourselves.  And pick up his cross.

These kind of people, do not want others to grow.  The sad thing is, and I have seen it recently, is that, honesty is not evident.

In fact, this is probably why I am writing this.  Because recently I met someone, who wanted to play a game with me, where it was concerning just giving me a plain, simple honest answer.  Yet, they professed to be a Christian.  But the fruit was not Christ like.  Nor was it in love.  By the way, I do forgive this person, and I pray, I am also forgiven, because strife did become evident.  And if people, bite and devour one another, they will be consumed.  So, I do bring this to the throne of God, for deliverance.  What the enemy intended for evil, I pray God will use for many for deliverance from selfishness.

Any way, I won’t get into specifics, about what totally transpired, but it expressed the fruit of selfishness from this person, and it reminded me, Christ, said for us to lay down our cross and follow him.  Denying ourself.

This is hard to do as a Christian sometimes.  And we are all growing on the vine at different places, but this is darkness, and it blocks our growth as Christians.

We are called, to help one another, or to see that one can grow.  And if anything, we are commanded not to lie one another. And to speak truth in love. Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.

But when I see someone, shifting from the truth to divert from one subject to another.  I see deception, I see the characteristics of the devil, and I see a liar.  And dear ones, as Christians those kind of characteristics are not things that should be evident.  In any one, who is professing to be a Christian.  Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.  Ephesians 4:25.

We need to grow up.  In Christ.  We need to take the word of God and renew our minds.  We need to walk in love.  We need to see others needs, besides our own.  And not only be motivated, to want to be blessed for ourselves, but for others.  Love should be that motivation.  When it is not evident, it is sad to say, but it is selfishness……This is not what God has called us to be.

In our world, there are so many hurting, and broken people.  And as Christians, if we cannot learn just in little things, to be honest, and not selfish, we cannot do as much, as we could.  We ourselves, cannot grow.

And thats with Gods help.  His supernatural presence of love, and of giving.  God has blessed so many of us, to be a blessing to others, and when we get caught up, in just stupid, little things, that are motivated by self.  Then, we are not being used by God.  But by the enemy.  We need to see if we are ever having characteristics of him, so we should always be in a place of submission to God, resisting the devil, and he will flee.

I pray, that the body of Christ would see this.  Because this is one thing, that is not often brought up, but it needs to be in the forefront of our thinking, and our praying….Lord, take selfishness away from me, and instead, let your spirit reign, in my heart.

We cannot pick up our cross, and deny ourselves, until we come to the cross, repentant, humble in the sight of Almighty God.  To begin seeing self has to be put aside.  Then we can pick up, the cross, at least worthy enough, by the blood of Jesus, to begin being effective for Christ.

And then, that the spirit of Christ will be evident, in our giving, in our love, and in our hearts, not to lie.  For  in his giving, Christ gave us the greatest example of giving, by his life, by going to the cross, for our sins, and by love.

This needs to be evident in us.  Selfishness is your enemy, it is a liar.  Don’t listen to it any more.  Know what Gods word says, and be obedient, as you give of yourself.  Christ will bless you. Don’t lie to yourself any more.  Or others. See it, and bring it to the cross, and leave it there, and then you can pick up your cross, to serve Christ.

Selfishness, needs to be dealt with by the root, and destroyed, cleansed, by the blood of Jesus.  So one truly can be the best they can be, by giving this to God for change.  There will be fruit, of righteousness, for it will not longer be motivated by self, but by Christ, and his giving.

Just my Thoughts, with love, I speak this in truth…

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor….

Father, I thank you and praise you, that you have shown me who I truly can be in Christ.  Father, your word says, you turn from the proud, and you lift up the humble.  So, I do come before you humble.  Lord, all I know, is I don’t like the characteristic of selfishness, or a liar.  Lord, we need to speak truth, one to another, in love.  Putting away lying.  Thinking of others, and how they can grow.  How we can be the best, we can be for you.   I know, I have not always, walked in this.  Maybe that is why I hate it.  Because I have seen my own selfishness, and how it takes away from growing, who I truly can be in you.  I see, how it brings darkness, even to a Christian.  Renewing my mind, by your word, has brought me to a place, to see myself, to leave it at the cross.  I just pray the Body of Christ, would also see this.  So we can be effective for you.  Using all the word of God, not just parts of it, to justify myself, but to justify you, Lord.  Thank you for letting me write this today, I pray it brings some perspective, to be careful, not to have a spirit of selfishness, for it is a liar.  And I know you can see through a liar.  Change this in me, and in all of us, if this ever becomes evident.  We need to surrender to you.  To be the best we can be in Christ.  To deny ourselves, and carry the cross.  In Jesus name.  Amen

ADDICTIONS~HOW DO YOU NUMB YOUR EMOTIONAL PAIN?


Addictions, I can write about them, and share with you, “Just My Thoughts.”  Because I have been there, and done that.

It is in the past tense, that I write this.  Because as a young woman, I found myself caught up in a few addictions.

 Smoking for one, and drinking, and other forms of substance.  Desperation, hopelessness, fear, loneliness, a sense of panic, can cause anyone to fall into any kind of an addiction.  You just want the pain to go away.  That emptiness.  That sense of despair, that no matter what you do, it won’t go away.

But it can.  For there is one name higher than any other.  That is Jesus Christ.

Life is hard, no one is going to deny that.  Even when you have everything going for you.  But lets just clarify something, at the time, I participated in my addictions, I did not have everything going for me.  But, I do now.  I have Jesus Christ.

That really was the difference, to who I could be, and who I was.  I was not able to find direction at an early age, and so I did what everybody else did.  Or at least, what most of my peers did, or even some of my family members did.  And, that definitely excludes, here for the record.  My mom.  She did not drink, she did not smoke, and she lived a clean life.  But she was still tormented with her fears etc.  Anyway, growing up hearing about her fears, did not help me either.

So, I had some baggage.  I had struggled with a few things, in my youth, that well, I don’t need to specify here, but the bottom line is, I hurt emotionally.  I was a mess.  I was also very rebellious.  Maybe, you will see that in you as well.  But, I did not want to heed authority, nor, would I see the err of my ways.  Till one time, I believe God put the fear of him in me.  But thats another story….

So getting into addictions, to numb my pain, or so I thought, led from one thing to another, in sin.  Here in retrospect, as I think about it, one sin, can lead to another.  Thats why, even here, if I can make you look at yourself, and give it to God, then you may be delivered from a consequence, far greater than the sin, you are already in.  For the wages of sin, is death.   Romans 6:23  FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH BUT THE GIFT OF GOD, IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD.

Death….Thats a strong word here, but it is true.  Have you ever thought, because you are not of a sound mind, and so caught up in “me, me, me,” that you could hurt someone as well?  Our courts are filled with drunk drivers, who have taken the lives, of someone else, because they believed the lie of the devil, to numb themselves.  And they got in their cars, and drove, and killed others.

And the devil is a liar.  And he wants you to fall further and further away from God, and the plan God has for you.  For in your mind, he will tell you there is no hope, he will tell you, take advantage of the situation, he will lie to you.  And if you don’t know his tactics, you will fall for it in whatever shape or form it comes to you, because you do not know the truth, to set you free.  That is why even here, I warn you, seek God, seek his truth, go to your Bible, and call on the name of Jesus, for he is able to deliver you.  And then, bring it to the obedience of Christ.  CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRING INTO CAPTIVITY, EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5

For your pain, emotionally, is coming from your head.  From all the garbage you are viewing, seeing, believing, and in your head, it is manifesting, into this sense of loss.  Your thoughts, need to change, so you can change.  Thats why even here I tell you take it to Christ. Get the mind of Christ.  For you are the temple of God, he can dwell in your heart, and bring peace, joy, and love.

So, I hope, and pray, you will take my advice here, and “Just My Thoughts.” and consider what I am telling you is truth.  For the truth, will set you free.  It will deliver you perhaps, from something that is keeping you in bondage.  Spiritual, and even physical bondage.  You see, we reap what we sow.  If we sow, unto ourselves, sin, we reap it.  If we sow life, we reap that.  So, if you really want to be free, you need to see Jesus Christ, is the way, the truth, and the life.  He came to give us life, abundantly.  But the devil wants to take your life, for he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  He wants to destroy your life.  So, by participating in any addiction like drinking smoking, and other drugs, you may think you are numbing your emotional pain, because you may escape it for a moment, what you really are doing is contributing to your death.  Your emotional and spiritual death.  Which could lead to an early physical death.

Spiritual pain, is not a bad thing.  Sure it may hurt, for a while.  But if you deal with it, with Gods help, and understanding, then you can overcome it.  And who God loves, he corrects.  That may not be pleasant either.  But if you go through the correction, and the overcoming of your bondage….Who knows, you may even learn some empathy, or compassion, or boldness, like me, who will just flat out and tell you in his love, you are better than that.  You do not need to throw away your life, you can overcome this, with the help of God, by obeying him, and by seeking God, for a better life.

But the main thing, is you will learn to take your pain, for again life is hard, you will learn to take your grief, sorrow, loneliness, etc to God.  He can fill that need, for he has promised, never to leave you or forsake you.  Hebrews 13:5. You need to know this, so you can deal with your issues.  God is with you.

Addictions, can come in many forms, but the key is knowing, by the standard of God, what is right and wrong.  By knowing God, and his word, you will learn the difference.  There are many scriptures that talk about drinking.  That wine is a mocker, well any drug, or substance, that controls you, will mock you, it will mock your life.  And usually, I give the scripture references, about that, but you need to do the searching in Gods word.  I did.

I will say, as well, that when we grow through things, without, the help of a substance, or an addiction, even to food, we can become strong.  We can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us.  And whom the Lord sets free is free indeed.  I am.  John 8:36  IF THE SON THEREFORE SHALL MAKE YOU FREE, YOU SHALL BE FREE INDEED.

Praying you will be too.  This may be your only chance.  Somehow, you came across my blog, and you read these words, but they are truth, they are life.  Take it to the obedience of Christ, and be set free.  AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.  JOHN 8:32

And as I conclude, just know this, any kind of pain you are in physical, or emotional, God can heal, nothing is impossible with God, and He is so good, and kind in his mercy. Just know this, nothing is impossible with God.  For by his stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5, and Luke 1:37.

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

A PRAYER OF HOPE….

Thank you Father, for setting me free, from myself, from the devil, and from my addictions.  Thank you for showing me, how to have the mind of Christ, by your word.  By what Christ did for me on the cross.  Thank you for setting me free, for truly, I am free indeed.  Lord, I pray, for the lost person here reading this, fearful, caught up in the addiction, and the sin, of the bondage.  Lord, break those chains, take those generational curses off of them.  They do not have to be in bondage, like perhaps, a family member was or is.  Lord, let this message, be multiplied, even by setting someone free by this, so they can share the message of Jesus Christ, so they can set others free, by what Christ did.  All we have to do is take it to the obedience of you my Lord, and we can be delivered.  Hallelujah!!  Thank you Lord, for your grace you extend, in your mercy.  In Jesus name.  Amen

HOW TO SPEAK TRUTH (JUST MY THOUGHTS AND 7 REASONS OF TRUTH)


BUT SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, MAY GROW UP UNTO HIM IN ALL THINGS, WHICH IS THE HEAD EVEN CHRIST.  EPHESIANS 4:15

I just have to say this, as clearly, and as loudly as I can;

“Jesus Christ, is Lord and Savior.  There is no other name, that can save, like Christ.  He gave his life, so we can be saved, so we can avoid the consequences of hell.  By his stripes we are healed.  His truth, is alive.  He is love.  His blood cleanses, and washes our sins away.  No other religious, figure can do what He can do, and did for us.  He will save you, if you call on his name, and seek him with all your heart, repenting of your sins.  Your name, will be put in the Book of life.  And you will avoid hell.  By seeking him, you will find love, true love.  Peace, and joy, understanding….and forgiveness.  Victory….He will fight your battles.  He will make a way.  Your life, will change, so that you will know He has a plan for you.  But you will have to trust him, and his truth.”

This is truth.

When I do speak truth, I do pray, I can speak truth about who Christ is in my life, the difference He has made, and that I am changed, because of him.  That I know, according to his truth, the word of God, I know, when I die, I will have a place in his Kingdom.

This is truth…  But there are different truths, and different situations, concerning truth.  But not concerning Salvation.  Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6

So, the goal, as I write, is to be truthful in love.  When we speak any truth….

And, gee this one can be tough.  To speak truth, and in love.  I will just say it bluntly, so to speak in my truth.  But,  I do try to be patient, considerate of someone else’s feelings, and compassionate, and yes, I try to speak it in love.  But not my love, the love of my Lord Jesus Christ.  But this does not come naturally.  It does take practice.  Gods love takes practice.

Just because we may accept Christ, does not mean there is immediate transformation.  Yes, we know in the Lord, when we give our hearts to him, immediately our names are written in the Book of Life.  But, we have to renew our minds, our hearts, our spirits, by the word of God, to please him, and by doing so, bringing it to the obedience of Christ.

So, we have to get rid of our “stinking thinking.”  And that applies to speaking truth, and how we speak it, ever mindful of Christ, and his sacrifice.  If you are blunt, as I can be, it can be difficult to speak in love.  So, I know, this does take practice.  I grew up in a home, where words were just spoken, and they flew, here and there, and then one was left to pick up the pieces.  And sometimes, it was hard to go on….But, because Christ has taught us to forgive.  I learned that, so I could be healed.  And hopefully, if I hurt someone, I also ask for forgiveness.

I have had people speak some terrible things to me, and even Christians, who may even speak truth, but are not at all sensitive, as to how it sounds, or what is implied.  And is it really truth?

Look the bottom line, is, if you are going to speak truth, you better make sure it is truth, or you will be just a pawn of the enemy, who is the accuser of the brethren.  And if you do speak it, please do not do it in a way, where you are accusing, even if it is truth.

When I am in a situation, and I have to speak truth, I pray, that I would seek God first.  Taking even if it is just a moment, to say, Lord, help me in this.  Help me to speak truth, but not hurt someone in the process.  Help me, to walk in love, and kindness.  Help me so that my words, are not accusing.  Or rude.  Lord please help me.

There are many times, when we have to speak truth, and for different situations.  But, I would rather speak truth, then ever lie.  For to know truth, and to speak truth, comes from your heart.  When I speak of my relationship with Christ, this is truth.  When I speak about what bothers me, this is truth.  Do I want to ever hit someone on the head with truth, no.  I want to be tactful.

I want love, the love of Christ, to be the main ingredient, in my speaking of truth.  There are times, when confronted, there are opportunities, where you need to speak truth.  And then I do pray for the truth to prevail.  I do pray for the boldness, to speak it, loud and clear.

This is a very profound subject to ponder on, and I could go on and on.  But if anything, that I bring to the forefront, in speaking about truth, I want to emphasize…..  Yes, speak truth in love.  Do so mindful of Christ, but never, ever lie, in your truth.  Lying comes from the devil himself.

And that is just something, we need to be aware of, and very seriously, I tell you, be careful not to pick up, or continue in habits, of lying, or the truth, will never set you free.  I tell you this, in love.

Here are some scriptures, to remind you about truth….

1.  What should we do about truth?

ZECKARIAH 8:16

THESE ARE THE THINGS YOU SHALL DO; SPEAK YE EVERY MAN THE TRUTH TO HIS NEIGHBOR, EXECUTE THE JUDGMENT OF TRUTH AND PEACE IN YOUR GATES.

2.  Who is truth?….

✝ JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE;  NO ONE COMES UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.

3.  How can anybody be guided by truth?

HOWBEIT, WHEN HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IS COME, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH, FOR HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF HIMSELF, BUT WHATSOEVER HE SHALL HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK, AND HE WILL SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME.  JOHM 16:13

4.  Should someone ignore truth?

NOW I PRAY, TO GOD THAT YOU DO NO EVIL, NOT THAT WE SHOULD APPEAR APPROVED BUT THAT YOU SHOULD DO THAT WHICH IS HONEST THOUGH WE BE AS REPROBATES. FOR WE CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST THE TRUTH, BUT FOR THE TRUTH.  II CORINTHIANS 13:8

reprobate |ˈreprəˌbāt|nounan unprincipled person (often used humorously or affectionately).• archaic Christian Theology (esp. in Calvinism) a sinner who is not of the elect and is predestined to damnation.

5.  Why do we speak truth, about Christ?

BRETHREN, IF ANY OF YOU DO ERR FROM THE TRUTH, AND ONE CONVERT HIM;  LET HIM KNOW, THAT WHICH HE CONVERTETH THE SINNER FROM THE ERROR OF HIS WAY SHALL SAVE A SOUL FROM DEATH AND SHALL HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS.  JAMES 5:19-20

6.  What happens when we know truth?

AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.  JOHN 8:32

7.  Truth is my choice, is it yours too?

I HAVE CHOSEN THE WAY OF TRUTH;  THY JUDGEMENTS HAVE I LAID BEFORE ME….PSALM 119:30

Just my thoughts,  in Christ’s love,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I pray, your truth will prevail, in my life, in my heart, and in everything I do.  For your glory, for your namesake.  Let love be the guideline, in my truth, that I speak, and live, to be a reflection of you.  In Jesus name.  Amen

FOR WHATEVER NEED YOU HAVE…DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN PRAY SCRIPTURES FROM THE BIBLE? ~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


Photo compliments of Roman Mestas Thank you Roman, God bless you

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  Isaiah 55:11

I ask the question from my title, because I sense God wants people to know this.  That whatever need they have, they can have a way, to guide them, to get answers.  And that is by praying the word of God.

So, I want to talk about something, that maybe many people really do not realize.  But the word of God, is something God gave to us to use.  It’s not just something, that you can read, and get Bible stories from.  Or to have a history lesson from.  Or even get direction from or guidance.  But God meant it for our benefit as well.  To actually use it.  To claim the promises of it.  To speak it.  To pray it.  I have learned, to pray the word of God.

Here,  I claim the above scripture, in relating to God’s promise from this.  Because God says, that his word, will accomplish whatever he wants it to, in whatever situation, he may send it to.  And since he has created us in his image.  We can have the authority to speak and say his word too.  So where can we send the word of God to?  So lets use examples, where I have actually tried this.

A couple of years ago, I got a terrible doctors report.  It was pretty scary.  For it was a bad report.  It was a life and death situation.  The Bible says in Proverbs 18;21….The tongue has the power of life and death in it, and those who love it, will eat its fruit. So, I thought o.k.  I have read a lot of scriptures.  And I do not want to die.  I am a believer, in Jesus Christ, and right now, I see my faith being put to a test.  I am going to pray Gods word.    I am going to be positive about this.  I am not going to speak that I am ill.  I am going to be very careful not to speak death.  I did not want to die yet.  And that scripture reminded me, to be careful with the words I would speak.  But what words should I speak?  Searching, again, I found Jeremiah 1:9….Then the Lord put forth his hand and touched my my mouth, and the Lord said unto me, Behold I have put my words in your mouth.

And I decided, I am going to claim Gods word, I am going to claim, by Christ I am healed….As I also thought,  Gods word also says, by his stripes I am healed.  Isaiah 53:5. As I could see it in my mind, and heart, the sacrifice of Christ and his beatings became very real to me.  And I knew by each beating, each stripe he received was for my healing.  And I claimed it, and Thanked God.

And because I know Gods word, another classic scripture, came to me.  For in the Bible Psalms 107:20 says, he sent the word to heal us and deliver us from destruction. So I thought, in faith, and this is the important part...Because it is impossible to please God without faith.   In Hebrews 11:6….It also says, that who ever comes to him must believe, that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

So, I thought, I am going to seek him, with all my heart, and pray his word.   I am going to send it back to God.  I am going to claim his promises, and I am going to believe, I am healed.  I will not believe the bad doctors report.  I will believe, by Christ’s stripes I am healed.  So I did do that.  I looked up as many scriptures on healing, and I claimed them.  And the wonderful thing after a time of praying, and seeking God.  I got an answer.  I got a good report.  Praise God, I thank him here again.  Because, that was a horrible, ordeal to go through.  I will be honest, I got scared.  But I knew I had to stand in faith.

There was one particular scripture though, that I memorized, and prayed, and meditated on completely.  It was one of my favorites.  And it still is….Jeremiah 17:14.  Heal me Oh Lord, and I will be healed, save me and I will be saved.  For you are the only one I will praise. And Praise God I do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, why am I sharing this with you?   One is because I am grateful to God.  Very grateful.  And…Because maybe,  you don’t know the power of God.  Maybe you were not raised in the ways of the Lord.  Or maybe religion, has turned you off.  It could be people in religion have hurt you.  Or you have seen some fanatics in religion, I don’t know….I just know, God.  Just because people do bad, that does not mean, God won’t answer us.  God is not evil.  He is good.  And he is able to change things.  And nothing is impossible with him.  But maybe your in a situation, right now, that may seem so impossible to you.  That’s why I share this….

And you want a miracle, you want a change.  You want to believe.  But you may not even know where to start.   I encourage you to look up scriptures on whatever topic it may be.  But if you do not know Christ as your Lord and savior.  It will probably may seem very strange to you.  To talk about  praying Gods word.  For you do not know, what his promises are.  But I tell you, as Christ told us, if you do have faith as a mustard seed, we can move mountains.

There are so many beautiful scriptures to claim, and to pray….You just have to look in the word of God to find them.  God will honor his word, and just as it says above, it will not return void.  It will accomplish it where he sends it.  But I have to tell you, according to another scripture.

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.  Psalms 66:18. We have to do things Gods way.  And if you need to make it right with him,  I encourage you.  Pray the prayer of Salvation below, repent, and then start searching his word.  You will position yourself as you pray his word to get answers….And if you need help please ask.  Thats one of the reasons, the comment link is here.  I would be honored to help you.  Why?  Because God loves you, and so do I!

Here God reminds us all again…to pray his word.

Jeremiah 1:12   Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

Blessings,

Just my Thoughts….

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I thank you for the word you have given me to write about even tonight.  I just opened my Bible, and this was the first scripture you brought me to.  Now, I know people might have a hard time, understanding this.  But Lord, I have learned, and you have taught me, the power of your word.  Lord, I pray for the person reading this.  That if they do not know you, they would seek you.  Lord, I know your word is alive, and Lord, there are so many promises you can bring by praying your word.  From finances, to healing, to marriages, deliverance from addictions, and so much more.  Lord, your word says all things are possible with you.  And another scripture I just claim, because of who you are.  And that just shows me who I can be in you.  For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Thank you Lord,  In Jesus name, Amen

I pray, this tid-bit of a blog, may encourage you.  I have a sense lately how much God wants people to know his word, and understand him.  So I have been writing about his word lately.  All I know, with all my heart, and as a true testimony.  Gods word does not fail….You just have to believe.
