FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, EVEN A JEALOUS GOD. DEUTERONOMY 4:24.
God is jealous for your soul. He created you, in His image, and so when any of us, get off course, and we do not realize the error of our ways, He sees with jealousy!
I have seen in my own journey of life, where God has prompted to correct me here and there. But He has done it sometimes in jealousy….
He is such a gentleman, to me, but He has been known to teach me some hard lessons in life.
It grieves me, that sometimes, I have not had good judgment. It grieves me, that I made Father jealous.
I did not do it intentionally, but stupidly, being naive, being foolish, about not knowing His ways, His truth….For life. For He is the way, the truth, and the life.
Oh how I love my King James Bible. For there, I hear His voice. There I know the content is not corrupted, there, I find truth. His commandments. Not someone else’s voice, that would make Him jealous…
I remember one time, I got Father jealous, because of my fascination with angels. I had been collecting figurines of them. One time, I went to a good will store, and I found one, and she had a lantern, so I bought it.
That same night, I dreamt of her. She came alive. She was evil, and she was trying to steal my soul, the light of who Christ was. Her lantern was symbolic, to taking my light, and putting it in that lantern. I woke up, terrified.
And I immediately opened my bible. This scripture was immediately in view.
THOU SHALT HAVE NONE OTHER GODS BEFORE ME. THOU SHALT NOT MAKE THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATERS BENEATH THE EARTH. THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF UNTO THEM, NOR SERVE THEM, FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN UNTO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME. AND SHOWING MERCY UNTO THOUSANDS OF THEM THAT LOVE ME AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS. DEUTERONOMY 4:7-10.
I repented. I broke it, and smashed it into tiny little pieces. There was something attached to it, in the spirit, that I did not want even anybody else to have. So I broke it, and threw it in the trash. It was a lesson, I will never forget.
You see, God saw my fascination, but even as a child, He was teaching me not to have any idolatry, before Him. For as a child, I asked my mother, when we went to mass, why did the people bow down to the statues? She had been teaching me the ten commandments, so I knew. We went to different churches, so I know the difference.
But here I was caught up in the spirit of just collecting, but it offended God.
So I am always careful now, to stop and see, what I like, what I give attention to, and why? Even people… Does it become idolatry?
You see, I don’t want to offend God. I know He is jealous. That scripture says he will visit the iniquity of the fathers, upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.
Generational curses, one wonders, so I want the slate clean…..
Idolatry, can also come in the form, of loving one self. Did you know that? Remember the devil was an angel of light, who disguised himself. He can come into position by showing himself as beautiful. But behind his spirit, that ugly spirit will show up, as pride, and as conceited. He was jealous of God, but God won that fight and kicked Him out of heaven.
God does not share His glory with anyone. So it is wise, to watch out for anything that becomes idolatry, or that tries to take the place of our relationship with our Lord and savior. Because He is jealous…
I have learned lessons in that as well, though it is hard for me to articulate into words, I pray, not to give myself that attention, in these kind of matters. For it can turn into vanity.
I just want to please God. I just want His peace, in my life. I just want answers to prayer, and I do not want anything in my life, that is sin, that would take priority, or hinder my prayers. I want His protection. I just love His presence….
I want to see Him glorified, though, because of all of this. I want Him to know, and the world…so I speak it. I don’t want to make Him jealous. And I want for Him to receive any glory, or honor, or prestige, concerning anything, I prosper in. Because if you think about it, our lives are in His hand. Our health, our wealth, our blessings…..small and large.
It takes deliberate thought, to make sure when I come before Him, even in prayer, that I know, that I know who I am talking to.
He is the King of Kings, He is the Lord of Lords. He is the healer, the provider, the creator of Heaven and earth, and so much more. I do not want to make him jealous, by giving someone, or anything more priority then I do him.
So I want to be careful. Do you think about that? Are you aware He is jealous for your soul? Food for thought, I pray this blesses you…
In Christ, Elena Ramirez
I know why I am writing this…. Because I am a little weary with people. In the body of Christ, and with the heathen. Those that do want to disobey God.
Writing, has always been an outlet for me. So I express it here. But I do pursue truth. So, when I see even brothers and sisters, being so discourteous, or responding in denial, yes I get a little sad.
Is it pride?
My husband reminded me it is a preference, to use these corrupt bible versions. But my thought is this. It is spiritual food, but it is junk food. Its like these bible versions are coated with sugar, to tickle the ears. But they are not healthy for you. Sooner or later, there will be consequences.
A way for the enemy to deceive someone. Sometimes, we have to tell each other what is good for us, even in warning them and what is not. I know the difference.
I have had so many people lately, actually attack my writings. Or will be so rude, that even their silence, speaks volumes, as I try and communicate. High profile ministries, won’t even give me the time of day. And my thoughts are dismissed. I could name names….but I won’t.
I will still continue as long as God gives me time to do this, His work, concerning His word. But, I wonder, when we all stand before God, what will He tell these people, who have been rude to me? Will they be ashamed, when He tells them the truth?
Humbled, I wonder what He will tell me as well. But I pray, my actions do not reflect a rudeness, that I have been receiving. Is this the cost for doing the Lords business? Well, I gladly do it, knowing what Christ has done for me.
I find myself, forgiving, and speaking it out loud, just so my spirit will know it. Making sure, I am wearing the armor of God to quench the fiery darts of the enemy. I do not want that poison in me. But I do see the venom that is coming out of some.
When pride rejects truth, what happens? I find myself contemplating this. How does it hurt the body of Christ. A person individually? I see, how it can sadly, stop the plan of God. Disobedience.
Because I know this truth about bible versions, being corrupt, and that the King James is holy. I know this is my calling.
Yet I see something blocking truth. To my brothers and sisters in Christ. Why? What is it that the enemy has done to believers, that they cannot see the discrepancies, and the truth in this matter? Why cannot they admit this truth I present?
Why? Is it because somewhere in their own hearts, they cannot admit, that they made a mistake, by using a corrupt bible, and cannot admit this?
Why cannot they go on shouting it out, to admit, there is truth in this which I bring to many?
Pride, always has been the downfall of many. That little sense of “self-dignity” one wants to hold onto no matter, what the outcome, so one cannot easily say. I was wrong.
How can we grow, unless we admit our failings? How can we grow, if we do not throw ourselves at the mercy of a Holy God, and say, Lord, I see your ways. Not my ways. I understand, your way is not the way of mine right now.
It just takes one act of courage to admit it in the sight of God, and man. Yet, pride holds one back. Even to repent. Or to say I am sorry to someone else. Or to say, I see this as truth.
I am trying to be courageous, I am trying to stand for that which is right. I am trying…..
The release is not evident, until one can do that. Pride holds one back for so much. Even in receiving blessings. It is like poison as well, when one cannot forgive, or release something because it is too difficult to release to God.
I see it, oh I wish I did not see it, yet I do, in so many. It is not judging, it is seeing what God says, in judging His truth righteously. It is rejected.
I try with all my being, and with prayer, to reach someone, anyone, to see this. Not that I judge them. But I see the famine, in Holy word.
BEHOLD THE DAYS COME, SAITH THE LORD GOD, THAT I WILL SEND A FAMINE IN THE LAND, NOT A FAMINE OF BREAD, NOR A THIRST FOR WATER, BUT OF HEARING THE WORDS OF THE LORD. Amos 8:11.
I cry, because I see my brothers and sisters, reaching out for a word, and it is not a King James word, holy, sharing it, and they do not see the discrepancies. I cry, without pride, because I see the body of Christ is crippled, and the enemy, is rampant deceiving even in the word of God truth.
And there is either silence, or a contempt that is so rude, that it defies truth, that is presented. Is that pride?
Its like I am trying to swim upstream to reach those coming down, that they do not have to go down, but they can reach a greater height, in Christ if they only took my words to heart. But then again, these are not my words, they are the words of the most high God. They actually reject what He says. I cannot even comprehend that. There it is in the King James. Do not add, or delete His word. Do not change it….Revelation 22:18-19. God hates it so much, that He warns salvation could be lost. And yet people get mad at me for showing them the scripture. It is truth! From the King James bible.
I have just put them in an order, to explain, the heart of God in this. To explain it in my post. And other writings.
“THE REASONS WHY I AM SO ADAMANT TO DEFEND AND PROMOTE THE KING JAMES BIBLE”….(see link below)
Is it because it is from me? A woman? Or even greater, a hispanic woman? One without a doctorate in religion, or bible studies? How could that be? Isn’t truth… truth? No matter where it comes from?
And no and thats why I remind you that Gods truth is not mans truth.
I am not playing the race card. But many do. Stereotypes, of people, is obviously been taught. All you have to do is watch the news.
I am reminded, God is not a respecter of persons. So we have to see, that, because Christ gave His life for all of us. Of all races, of all backgrounds.
FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD. Romans 2:11.
God will use the foolishness of the world, to confound them.
Maybe this explains why someone will not listen to me.
BUT GOD HATH CHOSEN THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD CONFOUND THE WISE; AND GOD HATH CHOSEN THE WEAK THINGS OF THE WORLD TO CONFOUND THE THINGS WHICH ARE MIGHTY. I Corinthians 1:27.
Oh I will be the first to admit, how foolish I have been in my lifetime. I had to, I had to release it, so I could go on, and grow. In the ways of my dear Lord Jesus. Who is by the way, the truth, and life. John 14:6.
I had to see the error of my ways. I had to admit, before God and the world, the many mistakes I made. I had too. I have lost so much even in a personal way, that has actually humbled me so much, because I am not confident in who I am, but who God is.
Thank you Lord, for that sense to write it like this. Why? Because people have not always been kind to me. In the world, and in the body of Christ. From those who have hurt me, coming from brothers and sisters in Christ. These have been the worst wounds of sorrow, I have experienced.
But even now, today, I will learn to ignore negative comments. I feel different. Stronger, adamant, but not so weary. And my confidence is in God and not people. Oh well…..
Oh there are a few who love me. But there are those who do not. But pride, no I don’t want that. Especially when it comes to knowing what God wants!
Let me rephrase that, what He commands us to do.
So, here I am writing this, somewhat frustrated today. Yet strangely at peace. Because I have poured my heart out for others to see this truth. I have presented this to many in the body of Christ. Some with authority. Some who could make a difference. Yet careful. Because God has warned me not to give flattering titles.
FOR I KNOW NOT TO GIVE FLATTERING TITLES; IN SO DOING MY MAKER WOULD TAKE ME AWAY. Job 32:22.
Yet what about just walking in love? Or giving a courtesy to another brother and sister in Christ? So the body of Christ, can see among each other, this is what Christ has called us to do. To show we are His disciples. Again, what will God say to those who have tried to hurt Gods people.
For the glory of God, and to help someone. So they can grow. About what God says, but no, right now it is rejected. Silence. Well be it be what it is. I can only try and obey God.
But I will say this as a warning. People, need to see the way they treat the things of God, and Gods people. Because God is not mocked. Galatians 6:7 King James. Food for thought, and a warning in love.
If you are interested in reading this, maybe you can see it, and not have pride, and maybe tell someone else. Tell someone so they can grow. So they can obey God. So they can get answers, this post, is my most current post. I have written a few of them on this subject, but maybe this one will give you truth.
Please I ask, though, leave your pride at the door, so you can go in, to hear truth. You may view my thoughts on this at this link.
It could be a door to you growing.
But I do want to close on an optimistic note. One that has hope, in my brothers and sisters. And to just acknowledge the support and love I do receive from some.
For you see, I love seeing the wisdom of so many. Who adore our Lord. Who take His Holy word to heart. Who see the discrepancies in other bibles, and use a holy King James word. Who walk in love. And are sometimes humble not prideful. It takes a lot for a person to admit they are wrong.
But I know God gives and blesses someone who does obey, and lets go of that pride. And just admits I was wrong…
I love seeing love in action.
ALL THE SAINTS SALUTE YOU. II CORINTHIANS 13:13
Blessings, and love, Elena
I want to share with you, what the Bible says about “spiritualism.” And I have not really heard too much, on this subject. And even, from the pulpit. From any church, I have gone to. Or really listened to. So, I am not pointing the finger at any one organization.
But, spiritualism, is something, I think, we could all relate to, because thats what we are. Spirits. That live in human bodies, but also beings, with souls. But we do not hear of it in those terms. So, it is important, and because it deals with the inner spirit of anyone. And the root of who they are. It will affect, why they may think, or do some of the things they may do. So, I want to talk about it from the root of who we are. To perhaps, bring perspective, and understanding, as to who we are, why we do what we do. etc.
There are different spirits, that can invade one persons soul, especially, if they have not given their hearts to Christ. I know, this can sound strange, like some “Body Snatchers” movie. But it is not too far from truth. You have probably heard, of people who were possessed, or oppressed, in their spirits. Well, where does it come from? A spirit…..
Searching for spiritualism, searching for answers can lead someone, into, magic, or witchcraft, fortune tellers, astrologers, psychics,card readers, mediums, and other forms of deception. Etc. These sources, of spiritualism are wrong, in the sight of God. Let me repeat, they are wrong in the sight of God, and He hates things like this.
The Bible tells us in Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familar “spirits” neither seek after wizards to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.
Beware not to be defiled. Corrupted, broken, giving place to the devil.
There can be a spirit, of pride, or lust….a spirit, of anger, a spirit, of confusion, jealousy, hate, manipulation, even a spirit of gluttony, and on and on. By not being aware of any kind of spirit, especially that is not of Christ, that is based on love, forgiveness, peace, etc. Anything opposite of Christ, one might not know, that they are walking in that “spirit.” And more then anything, may be in danger of eternal damnation. Hell is for those who do not abide by Gods truth.
So, it may be hard to distinguish, or to even recognize, that what they are doing, what they are feeling, can be based on this spirit, because it dominates. Christ told us, that either we would walk in His spirit, or we would walk in the flesh. John Chapter 6.
So, for the sake of communicating, lets call these spirits, that are not based on Christ, “Fleshly Spirits.” These are spirits, again, that are contrary to God, the word of God, and to the teachings and personality of Jesus Christ. So where would they come from?
Well, to be honest, they probably will be coming from the personality of the devil himself. I have brought this up before, in other postings here. But one really needs to know who their adversary is. We know, that the devil, is a liar, he is a thief, he comes to kill, steal, and destroy. And we know he is deceptive. He has pride, and he is evil. He is jealous, and because he hates God, he wants to deceive people. He wants to hide truth, and he does not want people to not know the truth of God, and his plan of redemption. And he is rebellious, not wanting to submit to authority. Gods authority. Thats why he got kicked out of heaven. Because he wanted to make himself out to be bigger or better than God, and God would have none of that!
If you see any of these characteristics in you, this would be a good time to go to the throne of God, and repent. For any of us!
One spirit, that is identified in the Bible, is the “Jezebel Spirit” She was an adulteress. And in, I Kings 16, we see that she married the King Ahab. Together, by her influence, she caused him to build an altar to a false god. This infuriated the Lord, God of Israel. The true, and living God. The God of the Bible. And because of who she was, there comes, the deception, that can be identified in the church, as a “Jezebel Spirit.” Because any spirit, that is not of God, is false.
Many, have come in the name of the Lord, but really are wolves in sheeps clothing. Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. So we have to be wise, and we have to know the difference in spirits.
So, we are called to test the spirit. Beloved, believe, not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God. I John 4:1.
And what measure do we use, in testing them? To the law and to the testimony: If they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. Isaiah 8:20.
The Bible tells us, and thats why all relationships, should be based on Gods truth, because the word of God tells us, not to be unequally yoked, with unbelievers. For what fellowship does righteousness, have with unrighteousness, and what communion has light with darkness? II Corinthians 6:14.
Religion, has been a part of this deception in so many ways. Because many religions, that have come in the name of the Lord, have departed from the truth of the Bible, and they may establish some things in the name of the Lord, but some do not teach the full gospel. Or they may add, something or take something from the word of God. Did you know, in Revelations chapter 22, the last chapter of the Bible, warns us, that if anyone, takes or adds from the word of God, God will put plagues on them? This is some serious stuff….
Religion is also to blame, because they do not go to the root of the problem. They do not teach people to stay away from things, that pertain to “spiritualism.” And the pitfalls of it. Any kind of spiritualism, that is not based on God, can bring curses. Generational curses, poverty curses, sickness curses, and the last curse of all. Reservations to hell. And no one wants to go there. That is eternal.
Thats why you need to be wise, and see, what is the root, of the teaching. They may make up their own rules and regulations, And the spirit is “deception.” Cults fall in this category.
For whatever reason. But in doing so, they have misrepresented the Bible, and people, are getting watered down versions of the gospel, or deception from these extra rules etc.
(I recommend, using the King James Bible only~It has not been tampered with, from translations, and watered down from other versions.)
Check out the doctrine from the church, or place you go for your spirituality. To see, if the spirit, of teaching is based on the foundation of the word of God. Even here, I will interject, and say, one needs to know what the word of God says, so they will not be deceived. So they will know the difference in spirits. When searching for a church, etc.
Not knowing, this in teachings, lessons, from the Bible, they do not know, the strategies, the enemy will use to deceive them. So by not knowing, not having Christ, protect you, by the blood of Jesus. Therein, comes the spirit, of lying from the devil.
And when people are walking in a certain “fleshly spirit” it is hard for them to recognize, the deception. It is hard, to comprehend or understand, why they may feel the way they do. Or why, things happen the way they do. They are reaping, what they are sowing, spiritually speaking. And it just does not seem fair. To them. Because they do not know the difference, and they do not know, God is not mocked. But it goes back to the root of the spirit.
If they knew, perhaps they could repent, and turn to God. And one always hopes for that. For the wages of sin, is death. Spiritual death. Which sadly can also be physical death as well. For when you are not protected by Gods love, one, can have an early death.
I can only identify some of these things, but as I do, I pray, you look at yourself. Look at where you are getting “spiritual” guidance. Is it truth? Is it based on the word of God? Or, is it really religion? Traditions, rules, etc. Is it from God. These things will affect your spirit. Is it satanic? I mean the list, could go on, and on. But you have to stop, look and pray. Ask God…..
EVEN HERE, I WARN YOU, GET AWAY FROM EVIL.
What do you really want to be seen? Especially, by God. When God looks at you, if you want to avoid eternal damnation, you want God to see in his Book of Life, whether or not you accepted Christ as your savior, and his spirit lives within you, to move, and have your being. We are told, in Gods, word, that we worship him, in spirit and truth. John 4:24. Christ told us, that his word, was spirit and life. John 6:63. If its not based on God, and HIS WORD, it is a fleshly spirit.
I implore you, to look at this, and see the root of where you are learning, and growing from. What are you accepting, or even looking at? Do you accept those that have “spiritualism”? Do you accept their works of darkness? Do you think it is o.k. to dabble in the occult? If it is not of God, and his Holy Bible, and principles. You are in spiritual danger. But you have to look, and you have to pray, read Gods word, for guidance.
If you are wondering about this….and you want to take the right course and purse righteousness, remember this…from Gods truth. Deuteronomy 13:2-4. Thou shalt not harken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: For the Lord, your God proves you, to know whether you Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. You shall walk after the Lord, your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
If it is not the voice of God, and based on Gods word, one should have nothing to do with such work, such “spiritualism” but rather cling to the the word of God. For guidance, to have the right spirit.
And again, if your not sure, like a computer, restore your system. Give your heart to Christ, let him lead you by His Holy Spirit. (There is a Salvation Prayer Link below, that you can pray)
Led by God, I warn you according to the word of God. Be careful. Even if you are a Christian. Be VERY careful. For we are seeing, we are in end times. And many will come and try to deceive, and to take us from truth. Christians and non Christians are subject to seducing spirits……
Now the Spirit, speaketh expressly that in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. I Timothy 4:1
Wear the full armor of God, to protect your spirits to know Christ only….By His Holy Spirit!
Just my thoughts, In Christs Love,
A Prayer of Honor…
Lord, to you be all glory honor and praise. How great you are, how great your truth is. Lord, I pray reveal understanding, concerning your spirit. By your Holy spirit. Let us not grieve the Holy spirit. I just pray my commentary, will bring understanding, truth, and a revelation to your ways. To live well, and right, in your sight. Deliver us from evil. Deliver us from the deceiver. Even here, I claim no weapon formed, will prosper. I pray, you would help those who need help. And those that are disobedient, will know, you are not mocked. And that hell is a real place. Help those who are searching, I pray, they change their ways to yours….By your Holy Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen
