SIN IS A DIRTY SPIRIT YOU ALLOW INTO YOUR SOUL, LIFE, AND BODY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0061I feel led to talk about sin, right now.  One does not hear much about it any more.  

Even from the pulpit, sadly.  It will pollute you.  

But I feel led to write about it, because many even in the body of Christ, think you are judging them, if you bring it up.  They get angry, indignant, they think you are judging them.  

Yet, according to Ezekiel 33, from my King James Bible, it says, we are called to warn, and warn, even the “righteous.”  

When I read that word, righteous, I assume it to mean, a Christian, who thinks they are saved, but they are allowing sin, into their life, their soul, and physical body.  

God tells us to be Holy, for He is holy.  And sometimes, I just shake my head, because I see many think their salvation, is a license to sin, and thats just plain wrong.  

FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD:  YE SHALL THEREFORE SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, AND YE SHALL BE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY: NEITHER SHALL YE DEFILE YOURSELVES WITH ANY MANNER OF CREEPING THING THAT CREEPETH UPON THE EARTH.  Leviticus 11:44.  KJV. 

Beware of sinful creeps.  Just saying…. 

Folks, in our King James bibles, it tells us, God will not hear us, if sin is there.  And again, I emphasize get a King James bible, that is holy, and not corrupt.  You won’t get the truth, the anointing, the holiness from a bible that is corrupted.  So get a King James bible.  

But just know, any kind of sin, will hurt us.  And thats the part, that grieves me, to know, sin separates us from Him.  From His sweet fellowship, His counsel, His love, and friendship, if we choose to sin.  

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   KJV.  

Have you ever tried to worship God, but worship does not come out of your spirit?  You feel cold, you feel numb?  Remember God is a spirit, and those that worship Him, worship Him in spirit and truth.  If you have so much sin, in you that “pollutes” your spirit, your faith will be off, and so will your worship.  I wrote “How To Have Faith.”

I learned these principles, that I write about in my book, because I know there are differences.  And sin, will stop it all, sin, will blind you, sin will make you have a “dirty” spirit.  Check yourself, do you allow sin, that pollutes you?   

I have grown enough, to know that I want no sin in my life.  See, we reap what we sow.  And spiritually, those sins, when un-repented.  Dirty our spirits. They dirty our souls, they dirty our physical bodies, and our minds.  Think about those who sin, and how filthy their minds are.  You don’t want that, you don’t want to reap sin, in your life, you don’t want anything that separates you from God.  

I could write a long list, of what sin does, because it comes from the enemy, and it is meant, to kill, steal, and destroy the life God has given you.  Thats the enemies goal.  And if the enemy, can take your crown, before Salvation, he will tempt you.    But if you give your heart to Christ, and repent, truly, and (I recommend daily repentance) you can see yourself change, and grow more to His image.   You can run from temptation.  

When I say they actually dirty the body.  Think about sexual diseases.  Think about diseases that cause cancer, or destroy parts of the body.  Smoking, drinking, drugs, open doors to illnesses, that one will reap, if they pursue that.  We need to teach this to our youth.  

So when I see a Christian open a door, and suggest its o.k. to drink or take drugs, they are not seeing how it can hurt someone, even others, who reap that.  They are contributing to sin, and a Christian, should never do that.  

I suppose this is why I pray, even now, to not be a part of those things, because I see, how all of these things led to my own brokenness, and because of sin.  I reaped much of that.  Yet, I was pruned by Christ.  Whom He Loves He corrects.  And believe me, He corrected me.  And His correction is not always pleasant.  See, God is not mocked.  But I reaped what I sowed.  

And I am bearing fruit for Him now, because I see the error of my ways.  I repented, and I still do.  Even when I think of my sins.  One can have a new beginning, even where you are.  Even if you are old.  

Even if you are taking your last breath, because then, at least you are promised eternity.  But you cannot have it, if sin is there, or its un-repented.  

I am not holier then thou.  I say all of this to you, with a very humble heart.  I know where I came from.  I know what I was delivered from.  I know, where I have been.  So when I tell you this, I don’t tell you to judge you.  Because as the scripture says, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. I know this, it grieves me to know I sinned.  To know, I had such poor judgment, especially in my youth.  I made mistakes that were sins, that haunt me for the rest of my life.  But when the devil does that, I remind him, NOW who I am in Christ. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ.  Read Romans 8:1  King James. 

Yet…. I know, I am not worthy on my own.  But only by the blood of Jesus.  That cleansed me.  But when you see what He did on the cross for you, when you see, who you were, and now changed, it does make you see, one should not play with their salvation.  Your salvation, is not a license to sin.  

But just know this, even though it may feel like judging, its warning.  And we are called to even warn the righteous.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James, over and over again.  Because the righteous, could mean someone who thinks they are saved.  

And I see so many in the body of Christ, play with it, they do not fear God, or work it out, with fear and trembling.  And I don’t care what folks say, about works.  But faith without works is dead.  You need to work it out.  You don’t take it for granted.

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

Let me just say this, and try and make this somewhat short and sweet.  Sin, stops your blessings, the blessings God intends for you.  Sin, clouds your mind, distorts truth, and will actually blind you.  You will believe the delusion.  And many in the body of Christ, even now, are delusional.  

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE.  II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.  

And this is hard to understand in some cases.  But…one can reap sickness, or illness, if you continue in sin, and don’t repent.  Don’t think you won’t, one will.  This is why Christ, took those stripes, and by His stripes we are healed.  He took the penalty, of our sins.   See sin, brings curses, and thats another thing, you want to avoid, with all your being.  There are many different curses.  If you want to read my book on this, go to this link.  You can order it on line, on Smashwords.  There both of my books can be ordered on line.

All I can say, is repent, even daily, keep your robes white, keep oil in your lamp, live for Christ, get a good King James bible, pray.  And stay away from sin, stay away from the enemy.

Submit to God, resist the enemy, and he will flee.  Your job, is to stay close to God, stay away from sin, and live the best life you can with your salvation in tact.  

I hope this helps someone.  

Blessings, and love in Christ,

STOP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If you don’t stop looking for love in all the wrong places, the end result of your life will be trashy….Strong words, but truth, please wake up!

I really feel such a strong desire to write about this.  And when I do, I know, its from God Almighty.  So, I pray, my experiences, this that, what I am about to share with you, helps you, to realize, God does not want you looking for love in all the wrong places, as well.

I am older now, my experiences, have taught me many things.  But I learned, and I learned the hard way, that one should:  

“STOP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES.”

Please allow me to elaborate.  

Right now, I am not looking for love.  I have a wonderful husband, and son, for over 30 years, we have been married, content, and in love, and we have our son, and so I am not looking for a mate.  

But when I was single, when I was growing up, I made many mistakes and had terrible judgment in this area.  I looked for love in all the wrong places.

I had low self-esteem.  I grew up, with my mom, raising me.  I had a father, I knew who he was.  He was a good man.  But he and my mother, did not get along, and were divorced, when I was just a child. 

So, I did not have that father figure to guide me.  

I have written about this in some similar posts, as my secret to true love.  But, I truly believe this.  That many of us, can get so lonely, so desperate for companionship, acceptance, a need to fit in, with others, that we can look for love in all the wrong places.

And I am not just talking about intimacy, or finding love, but just even in relationships, with friends, groups, etc.  We can look for acceptance, and actually compromise, who we are, because we can get so desperate.  It will distort your judgment. That you can even look for it in alcohol, or drugs.  Don’t do that, it will just make the problem worse, so that you cannot have a clear head in these matters.  

And I will elaborate on that as well.

But I know this worked for me, and years ago, after trial and error, I realized I had to change my method, or my approach to finding love.  I wanted true love. I went to God.  

He told me I needed to repent for my sins.  He showed me what He did on that cross for me.  He counseled me.  You know, He is my greatest friend, counselor, therapist, and adviser.  Theres none like God.  He is not imaginary.  He is very real.  He helps me, and helped me then as well.  

I began searching for truth, from my King James Bible.  And anyone that knows me, knows, I do not recommend any other word. Because it is not changed, or corrupted, as scripture tells us not to do.

Anyway….I began to see His ways, are not our ways.  The way of the world.  

The way of the world looks at love, as something cheap.  Its not.  Love em, and leave em, take what you want, thats not holy, and thats what you get.  Something that is not precious, something that is used, and thats not how God intended it to be for us.  Because He did not create us to have “trashy” spirits.  

So when I saw this, that love is not free, in that regard.  I began praying for the right mate.  I determined, that if God brought me a mate, I would do things His way.  Not mine, or the way of the world.  I promised Him, I would do things His way, and I do try.  

When I met my husband, I laid out some rules.  Because I liked him. And I did see potential.  But I did not want to ruin it with sex, or short changing myself, to try and please someone.  Who might, just take pleasure, and then leave.  Anyway, like they say, why buy the cow, when you get the milk for free?  

So, I told this wonderful man, I met, I wanted to do things right.  The way of the Lord.  So, he listened, and that gave him, respect toward me. 

Well long story short, a few months later, he asked me to marry him.  We got married, by holy matrimony, and we are trying in the way of the Lord, to live happily ever after.  

Has it been easy? No not always, but we work at it, we cherish each other, and honor each other.  Because we honored God to wait.   Because we did wait, and we honored God, we have a supernatural bond, that cannot be broken.  

Now, because I am older, I want you to see, by my experiences, that you can have true love, but you can also see, by what I share, that you need to stop looking for love, in all the wrong places.

I am also talking about just fitting in.  Or having friends.  I know myself.  I am a pretty loyal person.  But I have not always had that returned to me.  Right now, I just have a couple of people, that I call friends, that I love, but people change, and I have seen that in my life.  So, I don’t always trust that.  People can come and go…..

And, I don’t rely on people, to fill a void for me.  That void, is only met, as I seek God.  As I pray, as I read my King James Bible, as I stay away from any kind of sin.

I don’t even rely on family.  But I am very grateful for my immediate family.  That I have now.  

But when I say that, I am talking about other family relations.  See, it was just me and mama.  Daddy passed away first, even though, he did not raise me, I knew him.  He provided what he could.  Mama raised me, but life was hard on her.  I had no brothers and sisters.  I don’t even have family on any side, that communicates with me, besides an aunt.

So, I have adopted people in the past, loved them, like family.  But they abandoned me.  Well, like I said, people can change.  

But I also now look at what people represent.  Do they compromise values?  Do they respect themselves?  Do they lie?  Are they mean?  Do they have integrity?  I am careful now not, to just be a friend with anybody, any more.  I value myself that much, that if someone wants to be my friend, they have to be for real, in having some good values.  ….They have to prove it, to me, now.  

Any way, I feel like there is someone, I am talking to.  Someone, who wants to fit in.  And you are about to compromise yourself, or values, that make you special, in Christ.  Don’t. 

The other day, because I am a Conservative Christian, on social media, someone told me something, and it kind of hurt my feelings, but it made me realize the truth too, because I was supporting something.   This someone told me; you will never fit in with them, because you are Hispanic, and you may agree with them, but they will not accept you.

And that stung.  Because I am an American.  I have legal rights, as an American.  Born and raised here, with indigenous roots.  So….I know who I am.  I am fairly educated, even though in some areas of that, I do lack, because I did not go to college.  

But I realize, even in some Christian circles, I will never be accepted.  By some.  And I am not the kind of person, that looks for race, as my outlet.  So, I don’t use it for, or against anyone either.  But some do.  

But it made me realize, I don’t need to go looking for love, in all the wrong places.  Or even in political circles.  Or even in the body of Christ.  In fact, sadly there are those in the body of Christ, who have hurt me the most.  

I have tried, to be accepted, even in my writings, as my gift.  And hoping, doors would open for me, and they have been shut.  Why?  I don’t know?  Is it the race card, I don’t know, but I know, by some, I will not fit in.  My writings, publishers, have turned away.  If people share my thoughts, thats great, but I don’t ask any more.  

So, I don’t try and second guess any more, because life is too short, to keep banging on doors, that just won’t open. And I don’t compromise by flattery to have those doors open either.  Though, I am nice, polite, I don’t beg. 

I don’t go looking any more, for acceptance, or for favor, or to fit in.  I don’t need drugs, or anything to be a comfort.  

I am content, with what God has given me, in my family, and in Him.  No, I wanted more, in this life I live.  But I see I did reap, what I sowed, in other ways, but now, I don’t care to try, to please people. 

Yet, I see so many hurting, lonely people, that I have compassion for, and the love of Christ rises in me, to want to help, but I also know, in all honesty, we reap what we sow.  

If I could sit a young woman down, and talk to her, maybe she could understand. But since I am not in a position to even be in that “circle” maybe what I write, here, could help her, or him, not to sell yourself.  Not to give yourself away.  

There are valuable attributes, to claim, when you respect yourself. And, no matter where you are, you do not have to give yourself away, to be a part of something good, or great.  

Now, I know God has taught me this, to respect myself, but it did come with some heartache.  But I know, where ever He may lead me, I don’t have to look for love.  I don’t have to beg people to accept me.  I don’t have to compromise my values, in Christ, for acceptance, or to be a part of something.  

I don’t.  And I will not.  

Please just know, you need to “Stop Looking for Love in all the wrong places.”  Don’t take anything to fill that void, clear your spirit.  By not polluting it, or your body. Go to God, He will fill that void in your life.  He knows what you need, He does not make you suffer, just to suffer, but He will correct you, because He loves you. And so suffering does sometimes come with correction.  

Ensure your salvation with Christ.  And I would tell anybody that.  Hell is real, even on earth.  Even if you were a Christian at one time.  Rededicate yourself to Christ.  

Repentance, always clears the slate.  Talk to Him, He is your greatest friend.  You don’t need to beg anybody, or compromise yourself to be with people.  You may long for it, but when God closes one door, He will open another.  

And maybe thats where I am at right now, because I see some doors closing, even now, that I won’t elaborate on, but I am so hopeful, for just a new beginning for me and my family.  

But people will not always be happy for you.  Nor will they support you, because they do not see the value in you, because they don’t see the value in themselves as well.  Some people will purposely try to hold you back.  But you don’t have to give them that advantage over you, if you do things the way of the Lord. 

So move on, and let God guide you.  Your heart will mend, if you do things His way.  Your peace, will be fulfilled, and you will find your heart mended, and that void will go away.

Stop looking for love in all the wrong places…

Just remember this.  God is love.  He is Holy.  Love, real love, can only be fulfilled by Him, and through Him.  Anything else, sorry to say, is not pure, its not good, its not worthy of you losing your soul over. Anything else, could be counterfeit.  If He is not in it.  For you would be missing, the love God could give you.   

BELOVED, LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  FOR LOVE IS OF GOD: AND EVERY ONE THAT LOVETH IS BORN OF GOD, AND KNOWETH GOD.  HE THAT LOVETH NOT KNOWETH NOT GOD; FOR GOD IS LOVE.  IN THIS WAS MANIFESTED THE LOVE OF GOD TOWARD US, BECAUSE  THAT GOD SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH HIM.  

I John 4:7-9 King James.  

I hope this helps someone.  Feel free to share this, or to comment, below.  I will gladly pray for you.  

Blessings, in Christ,  Elena Ramirez 

 

SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


P1270072.jpg

SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

I have seen this a lot lately, no respect.  No respect, for boundaries, friendships, authorities,  our civil liberties, for life, for the unborn, for people, for anything, it seems like any more.  

There is no fear or respect of Gods laws and commandments.  For so many have thrown out His law, out the window, and think grace has covered it.  With this stinking thinking, so many have hooked onto, and they reject the law.  Thinking they are free from the law, in the new covenant.  Think again…  God does not flip flop!  He does not change.  He did not change….

THEREFORE THOU SHALT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO FEAR HIM.  Deuteronomy 8:6.  KJV.  

There is no respect.  People say what they want to say.  They mock what they want to mock, and they don’t think of the consequences, for even their own good.  

People are not taught this, when I grew up, we were taught to respect.  I was.  Even if you don’t agree with someone.  Even if you think they are wrong.  There is a way to communicate, without being disrespectful.  Like yes, sir, yes, ma’am…..

I am so glad I was, taught this, because it taught me, to respect the fear of God.  I fear God.  I know, even in my own life, I have reaped things, because of my own rebellion.   When I see, that someone should know better, or they have not corrected even their own family, or friends, to respect others, by people I love, I am shocked.  

My own ignorance, or even like my mother would say.  My own stupidness.  Has taught me more then ever about respect.  Yes, oh for years, I was grieved that she told me that, but at this point, I honor what she says.  More then ever I see….I was stupid.  But stupid, can get wise.  

I know that too.  Its not too late if you stop, and see the error of this.  I respect who I am in Christ.  With all my faults, and believe me I know I have had terrible judgment in some matters.  I know that there are lines not to cross, in matters of respect.  With myself, and yes with others.  For my own good. 

See, what happens, is we do reap what we sow.  Its a principle, folks.  Like what goes up, comes down.  It just is a principle. 

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

And when I see so much of disrespect, and even with people, I love, it grieves me.  It has to grieve God as well.  

And I am not here, to make light of this.  People need to see there are consequences.  When someone crosses a line symbolically, against somebody with disrespect, and even God.  He sees that.  He does not bless disrespect.  Vengeance is the Lords…

Oh our Lord, is gracious, He is merciful, but people forget how to repent to Him, and to apologize to others, and to respect authority.  To respect life, and it brings in sin, and destruction.  

We should all be fearful of God in this.  For our own good.  I am not going to get into the many details I have seen recently.  But….It has been a lesson in life.

But I see it, even as our country is so divided.  I see it, and I wonder what will we reap, in all this disrespect? Individually, and as a nation, and for our souls.  Because God is not mocked folks.  

YE SHALL DO NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN JUDGMENT:  THOU SHALT NOT RESPECT THE PERSON OF THE POOR, NOR HONOUR THE PERSON OF THE MIGHTY:  BUT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL THOU JUDGE THY NEIGHBOUR.  LEVITICUS 19:14.  KJV.  

And bottom line is, we reap what we sow.  Maybe you won’t see it now.  But it opens doors to the enemy.  Its his goal, to come, kill, steal, and destroy.  But you will see it for sure when you stand before Christ, when you leave this earth.  Because Christ could very well tell any of us.  “I never knew you.”  

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.  Matthew 7:23  KJV.  

It is iniquity.  Its sin, to have that spirit of rebellion, that is disrespect. 

So much, that it could determine, hell or heaven.  Nobody, wants to hear the hell and brimstone message, but its truth.  And that is reaped as well….

Well, I just pray, whoever reads this would have a good heart to heart, with God.  Because  if you start with Him, it will go well.  He will teach you, about respect, but it comes with the fear of God, and the consequences He speaks about in my King James word.  He corrects those who He loves.  

HOLD THOU ME UP, AND I SHALL BE SAFE:  AND I WILL HAVE RESPECT UNTO THY STATUTES CONTINUALLY.  PSALM 119:117.  KJV.  

Don’t you want to be safe?  I do, I embrace this scripture.  And all of Gods word.  See thats just it.  You take all of Gods, King James scripture, and connect the dots, and it makes sense.  But you know better to not embrace, these fake versions, so you won’t get blinded.  Because there are commandments there too, like Revelation 22:18-19.  kjv.  (Look it up) 

But if you don’t even sense the Holy spirit, prompting you. Or you mock, even me, as I warn you in love, well….. its sad, and I don’t wish bad to anybody.  

But I know there are consequences.  I know, we reap what we sow.  And I know…. Gods ways are not our ways, but we should very well stop and see what we are doing.  Or we don’t grow.  

If you have disrespect it may be, because you do not fear God, and we are commanded to fear God.

YE SHALL NOT THEREFORE OPPRESS ONE ANOTHER:  BUT THOU SHALT FEAR THY GOD:  FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.  LEVITICUS 25:17  KJV.  

But…You may very well, be headed to meet the fear of God.  And its a terrible thing to fall into the hands of our living God.  Without the fear of Him.  

IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD.  HEBREWS 10:31  KJV.  

Blessings, and love, with respect, reverence and fear to my God….

THE SPIRIT OF DELUSION WHEN TRUTH IS IGNORED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3776.jpgTHE SPIRIT OF DELUSION WHEN TRUTH IS IGNORED…..

When truth is actually ignored. When you love someone, and you may have discernment, about something, and you tell them, you try to warn them, and they reject it….ignore it….

Or they give you “intelligent” reasoning. Which I call ignorance….

Why is it ignorance? Because it is denying what God says, and someone is making a decision, that is contrary to what He commands and says. He doesn’t change folks. We do! And when we disobey, there are consequences.

Sadly….All you can do, is just pray for that person or persons….I have learned, you cannot argue about truth. It stands on its own merit.

If the spirit deceives you, to believe a lie, you won’t see the truth.

AND WITH ALL DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED. FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE. II THESSALONIANS 2:10-11.  KJV

Its a spirit of delusion, that yes God allows, because you ignored His truth. One thing I have learned, God will not take you to the next blessing, if you have ignored, His correction. His truth, or even His servant. Remember Moses? And the stiff-necked people he dealt with? They walked around in circles, for 40 years….

This pride thing, about being rebellious, when truth is presented. Is purely disobedience in His eyes. It hurts a soul, when someone, rejects truth… The humble person, at least acknowledges it. Doesn’t debate it, doesn’t argue, and may even say thank you.

Wow what a concept.

The sad thing is, one then may ignore the one who ignored the truth, because they just won’t listen. What can one do? But shake the dust off.

Its not acting holier than thou, its love, its a warning. And someday God will show you again, if you ask Him. But do you really want to wait 40 years?

Live and learn….. I only wish, I had not been rebellious when I was.
Oh well….

To each their own….

HOW CAN ANY OF US THINK WE ARE SAINTS? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


p3110148

How can of us, really think we are saints? I know, what keeps me on the straight and narrow path, is when I realize that we all sin, we all fall short of the glory of God. We all do.

When any of us, think we are a saint, we get into dangerous territory. We can get puffed up. Puffed up can lead to pride, and God hates pride.

I don’t claim to be a saint, nor do I want to say I am a sinner as well. I bring it all to the obedience of Christ.  In repentance, in humbleness.  

Something about looking in His spiritual mirror reminds me there is only one that is perfect, pure, worthy of praise and adoration and that is Christ.  Not me. 

I know, I have sinned. I pray I do not sin now. I pray I do not ever take advantage of what Christ did for me, on the cross.

But the balance for me, which I pray is pleasing in the sight of God, is to be aware, He is the only one, who can call me a saint. By seeing, I have accepted Him, by repenting. By turning away from my sins, to please Him. And only Him.

Not myself, or others. But Him….

Saint or Sinner, is His call, not mine.

“A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.”  Proverbs‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Don’t undermine someones pain or sorrow.  I tell myself this as well, because I have learned to put on my own armor, when I see, or sense pain or sorrow in myself, and others.

I have to keep my armor on.  Or I would fall apart.  I would not be effective for the Kingdom of God.  I cannot walk in my way, but the way of Christ.  So no song of self-righteousness, will make me stronger.  But the righteousness of Christ.  Not my self-righteousness.

So when I see people with no compassion.  No understanding, no comprehension of someones pain.  Including their own.  I wonder why they react the way they do.  

No one, understands our own pain, more then Christ, since He suffered for our sins.  For He was compassionate, He was love, He was truth, He was a Physician, He was so much more, that we have to use as an example.  

But we have to go to Christ.  I know I do….and I do.  

When I sense silence, or no offering of compassion, to those that are hurting.  Or if I see someone being mean spirited, I wonder why is there no sense of compassion?

You see, we never know, why people are the way they are.  What contributed to their coldness, or their passiveness, or even their own mean spirit.  So many times, you see people who are rude, or mean, but they don’t know how to give it to Christ.  In fact, many that are that way, deny God.  So when people deny the only true source for healing, they use others as a scapegoat for their pain.  

They get self-centered, selfish, and prideful.  And you have to look real close, or you will not have compassion for that miserable soul.  

I don’t often share my own pain, or sorrow, because I have learned to give it to God.  I have found people don’t always know how to react to others pain.  Or how to console.

Yet, there are things that it just does not seem as if they will heal in my own life, until I stand before God.  So I sometimes hide my pain, or saddness.  

And all I know, is that, I cannot lose my sense of who God is, amidst the pain I sometimes feel, and let that control me.  I cannot.

But it does make me look at people through eyes, that have hurt, to give someone compassion.  Sweet kind, and beautiful compassion.

Compassion, that is love.  That Christ told us to give to one another.  Even our enemies.  How wise our Lord is.  How everything connects, when we use love.  How it solves problems, heals wounds, and brings peace.  It is a commandment.

So as I write about this, please think about how you deal with people.  Maybe you have reason to be angry with someone.  Maybe someone has hurt you deeply.  Maybe, though, if you tried to understand, what molded them to be that way, you can release your own forgiveness, with compassion, to not react with an eye for an eye to them.  Maybe you can stop someone from doing mean, or evil, because you are compassionate.  

God only knows why people are the way they are.  But I have learned, on my own.  I don’t have to embrace that kind of spirit, to grow.  To grow in Christ means, I have love, for others, and myself, to not get caught up in things.  

I just pray, for those who are grieving, angry, or hurt.  Maybe you will have this pain, or sorrow, that I understand, that does not seem to go away.  But I pray, you are always comforted with love.

I never want to undermine your pain.  But don’t undermine my pain either.  

And why I search for God so much.  Unless you have walked in my shoes, or I in yours, all we can do is comfort each other.   But to be mean, and to devalue your pain, or mine, is not productive.  What produces fruit in our lives.  Is love….with compassion.  

WHO CAN HAVE COMPASSION ON THE IGNORANT, AND ON THEM THAT ARE OUT OF THE WAY, FOR THAT HE HIMSELF ALSO IS COMPASSED WITH INFIRMITY.  HEBREWS 5:2 KING JAMES.   

FINALLY BE YE ALL OF ONE MIND, HAVING COMPASSION ONE OF ANOTHER, LOVE AS BRETHREN, BE PITIFUL BE COURTEOUS.  

MARK 1:41. KJV.  

AND OF SOME HAVE COMPASSION, MAKING A DIFFERENCE.  

JUDE 1:22.  KJV.
