HOW TO PRAY WHEN OBSTACLES GET IN THE WAY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0046.jpegFirst of all, lets just get this clear!

Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6, King James.  And when we need to find our way, we need to find truth, to have life.  Life abundantly, in Christ.  So you have to ask yourself.  Have you found Christ?

pa310033-e1320254594854.jpgSo, don’t try to bypass Christ in this, don’t try to find solutions, that eliminate Him.  Because what you will find is that you may be searching or looking for solutions, that do not include Him, and that could be your downfall.

Oh you know what I am talking about, because some of you dabble, in a little of this, or a little of that, and what you are doing is bringing spiritual curses.  (horoscopes, psychics, and worse)

Things that will if anything create more of an obstacle.  Because God controls it all…  If anything, you will get God very angry.  Don’t do that.

There are no loop holes, to God or with God.  Got that?  There are not!  His Ways, are of excellence.  His ways, are according to His truth.  According to His righteousness, and His Kingdom.  They are through Christ.  Even in prayer…IMG_0346.jpg

Don’t think just because God is silent, He does not see.  He does.  And that should put the fear in all of us!

But are you doing your part?  Are you seeking His Kingdom, and His righteousness?  Are you seeking to please Him.  Not people.  But Him?

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.  MATTHEW 6:33 KING JAMES.  

Are you in Holy word? King James word, because you know if you are trying to get a break through, or by step obstacles, you cannot with a rubber sword.

But you have to be in a place, where you can ask.  Have you repented to God, for even thoughts, or sins?  Daily?  Keep your spiritual house clean.  On a daily basis, for the anointing to flow to you.

Sometimes, when obstacles, occur, or happen it can happen for two reasons:

1. God has placed the obstacles there. 

2. The enemy, may be interfering.   So, don’t give the enemy a legal right to interfere.  For YOU are allowing him to place obstacles in your way.

I am going to use Samson, from the Bible, as an example.  Remember, he was gifted, by God, and he had much wisdom, and was able to fool many people?  Confound them?  He had the ability, as a gift, even in physical strength, to do great things, because he loved the Lord.  But sin, did get in the way, and he ended up even losing his physical vision, because he fell in love, with Delilah, and she betrayed him.  He foolishly trusted her.  Do you trust, someone, and sin is there?

Folks, even here, can we not see, how we can lose our gifts and callings, when we fall for sin?  It hurt him so much, that he lost his physical eyesight, they took it from him.

But when he prayed to God, to have strength, again.  He was restored.  He was blind.  But yet, he knew where to push, and he toppled the building, the temple, they were all in, and they were destroyed.

See, that obstacle, could have been him losing his eye sight.  But he got right with God, and found his strength again.

AND SAMSON SAID, LET ME DIE WITH THE PHILISTINES.  AND HE BOWED HIMSELF WITH ALL HIS MIGHT; AND THE HOUSE FELL UPON THE LORDS, AND UPON ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WERE THEREIN.  SO THE DEAD WHICH HE SLEW AT HIS DEATH WERE MORE THAN THEY WHICH HE SLEW IN HIS LIFE.  JUDGES 16:30 King James. 

We can find our strength again.  Physically and spiritually.  No matter what has happened, no matter, how much we have fallen, or hurt ourselves, or been hurt by others, or been in sin, we can get right with God.  We can be restored.  On earth and in heaven.

I feel that for me as well.  I know, I have made mistakes in judgment with people, with trust issues, with poor choices.  I have been myself, sometimes, my own worse enemy.  But even though, I was blind spiritually, I can now see.

We have to understand there are things in the spiritual realm we may not be able to see.  Don’t go to the blind, for advice.  But God can show you.

LET THEM ALONE:  THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND.  AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH.  MATTHEW 156:14  KJV

Because I trust God.  I try and obey God.  And what I see, has taught me, that with God, all things are possible.  No matter what the obstacle is.  God can make anything happen, and I think we can get discouraged.  I know I have in some ways.  But yet, I won’t give up.  Even if the obstacle is so big.  Remember Christ told us to speak to our mountains, and they would go away.

JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, IF YE HAVE FAITH, AND DOUBT NOT, YE SHALL NOT ONLY DO THIS WHICH IS DONE TO THE FIG TREE, BUT ALSO IF YE SHALL SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN, BE THOU REMOVED, AND BE THOU CAST INTO THE SEA; IT SHALL BE DONE.  MATTHEW 21:21  KING JAMES.  img_2533

So, I am no longer, the blind, lead by the blind….

I have faith, and trust in God.

Let me explain.  See, in the spirit realm, we do not always see, what forces are attacking us, but if we know God, we can have His protection.  Because He sees everything.  He allows what He will…..

To be right with Him, though will bring results.

So, if you are looking at something, that you may desire, but you are seeing, obstacles, have you asked God why?  Have you repented?  We are called to wait on Him.  What does His King James word say about such matters?

WAIT ON THE LORD, AND KEEP HIS WAY, AND HE SHALL EXALT THEE TO INHERIT THE LAND:  WHEN THE WICKED ARE CUT OFF, THOU SHALT SEE IT.  PSALMS 37:34  King James.

Have you ever seen him cut the wicked away from you?  I have….

So I recommend, continuing in prayer.

But, if you are not seeing any results.  Pray this way, His way, to God.

Thank God, for the obstacle.  See, His timing makes the difference, He may have put the obstacle there for you, to avoid a downfall.  He may have something better.  Or whatever.  Trust Him.  In the timing.  Look at the obstacle differently.  Don’t look at it as something that hurts you.  Look at it, in a way, that tells God you trust Him for the obstacle.

But as you do, thank God.  Thank God in prayer for the obstacle.

But, remember what Christ taught us!  He gave us the authority, to bind or loose things in heaven and in earth.

Tell God, that if the obstacle is His doing, then you will wait.  Trusting Him. But, if the obstacle, does not come from God, but from the enemy, plead the blood of Jesus, and bind that obstacle from interfering.  REBUKE IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS!  Loose, or release, in prayer to God, for a way, from the obstacle, because He is the way, the truth and the life.  Ask God to remove the obstacle.

AND I WILL GIVE UNTO THEE THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN:  AND WHATSOEVER THOU SHALT BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN:  AND WHATSOEVER THOU SHALT LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 16:19  KJV.IMG_0004

And in any event, thank God.  He will show you, just be patient.  Walk in love, forgive, do your part, in just every day things.  Seek His Holy King James word, read it daily.  Keep your spirit right before Him, with praise. Praise to God, also makes such a difference.

THANKS BE UNTO GOD FOR HIS UNSPEAKABLE GIFT.  II CORINTHIANS 9:15  King James.

Does that help?  I hope so.

Prayer my friends, make the difference.  Learn to use it, and ask God to give you witty ways….

Again, He is the way, the truth, and the life….He can remove those obstacles.

Blessings, and love,

THINKING HEALTHY THOUGHTS IN CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4836.jpegThinking healthy thoughts in Christ, has always been my goal, as I write even here, “Elena’s Just My Thoughts.”

FOR AS HE THINKETH IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE……Proverbs 23:7 KJV.

And sometimes, well you have to define your goals.  You have to see, first of all what are your goals based on.  Where do you get your information, to think upon?

See, its great to have a goal, but if the goal, is not Christ centered, you could go wrong.

And my husband and I were just chatting about some of the Christians we knew in our lifetime.  Who claimed they were Christians, but they had the ways of the world.  We saw it in their goals, or the lack thereof.

We have seen some things that shocked us, to be truthful.  By some. And we saw these things now and then throughout our lifetime.  In churches, and some personal relationships.  Not all. But, in just growing, or trying to understand life.  Or human behavior.

We concluded, that many we did see did not have the fear of God, to do some of the things they did, or the desire to have the mind of Christ.

They did not see, that the goal should always be to have the “mind” of Christ.

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.  I CORINTHIANS 2:16  KJV.

P1010024.jpegSure, there was a hallelujah, praise the Lord, time, we saw sometimes.  But when it came right down to it, their fruit did not always reveal Christ.  And I want to be gentle here, because yes there were times we saw it, but there were times we did not.

And in those times. We did not. It really did not reveal an obedience to God, to want to obey God, in what He teaches us.

In keeping His commandments, and laws.  By walking in love, by forgiving.  And so much more.  For, we are told, in KJV scripture, you will know them by their fruit.

WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  MATTHEW 7:20  KJV.

And not to judge, again being gentle, because I realize I also sin, and can sin, even daily by my own thoughts, and come short of the glory of God.  Yet scripture also says, we are to have righteous judgment.  So I need to find the balance.

A FALSE BALANCE IS ABOMINATION TO THE LORD:  BUT A JUST WEIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.  PROVERBS 11:1.  KJV.

Thinking constantly, toxic or negative, pessimistic thoughts, will get you off balance.  You have to have a good balance.  I pray to balance my thoughts, so it does please God.  Repenting, daily, in obedience, helps me keep the slate clean.  But, it made me realize, we can think unhealthy thoughts, by what we do, and may even think.  We can justify it, because we are Christians.  And I think many Christians think it’s o.k. to be who they are, but they don’t try to get the mind of Christ.  This is really important.

SEARCH ME, O GOD, AND KNOW MY HEART:  TRY ME, AND KNOW MY THOUGHTS…..Psalms 139:23  KJV.IMG_0136

But there should always be a goal, to please God.  There should always be a goal, to fear God, in even what we think.  Because God sees everything.  We can forget that now and then.

Now concerning these folks we were thinking about, we loved them.  But the love was not returned always.  And it just made us think, about how much, one has to continue to seek God, no matter what.

We cannot be people pleasers, but we must always have a spirit, to want to please God.

And you cannot do that, if your thoughts are unhealthy.  Life is hard sometimes, and sometimes, you have to look at a situation, and say how did I handle that?  Was it Christ like, or was it like the ways of the world?

Now nobody is perfect, and I myself, I know my flaws.  I really want to be humble as I write this, in the sight of God, I pray, I don’t have a big old plank of wood in my eye.

AND WHY BEHOLDEST THOU THE MOTE THAT IS IN THEY BROTHERS EYE, BUT CONSIDEREST NOT THE BEAM THAT IS IN THINE OWN EYE.  Matthew 7:3  KJV

But, I know where I can be weak.  I know where I can be harsh, or angry, and some folks may look at that as well, and judge me, and say, that is not Christ like.  And there may be some truth to it.  I have to admit that, and not have pride in that matter.  But I realize, I need to bring it always to the obedience of Christ.  Love always has to be front and centered, because that is what Christ said, we would be known by and that is love.  Read John 13:35  KJV.

P3110114To rectify that, and change.  But it begins with the thoughts.  With a mind to want to repent, to please God.  So, extending grace to yourself and others, just seems to help situations out.

Thoughts, touch our souls.  And if our souls, are not right with Christ, we won’t have fruit that reveals Christ.  See its a spiritual matter, that needs God to change.

And what are we putting in our heads, and our hearts, that affect our spiritual being?

This is very important.  This is one reason, why I am careful what I watch on television.  What books I read, by what authors, because I want the food I put in my mind and soul, to be good for my spiritual being.  To be healthy.

Spiritually and physically.

I just realize, with some of the things I have gone through lately, I need to keep my mind on God.  I need to have hope, I cannot give up, I cannot stop believing, and I feel like I am being tested.  Because it has been hard in some ways.  I was thinking of some of the hurts, I have felt, and I admit, it did cause me to think some unhealthy thoughts.  Poor pitiful me thoughts.  But now I have a little bit of a chuckle, and count it as a life lesson.  That I have learned.  So, I think I am at a good place in the process, where I need to just let go, and go on, in Christ.

See, I refuse to let something control me, like a bad habit, etc.  I have to always think and feel I am free in Christ.  I have to be aware of spiritual obstacles, and deceptions, the enemy will purposely place before us, and just remember, Christ is the way, the truth and life.  John 14:6.  kjv.

So, I realize, I have to continue to think healthy thoughts.  And this is where I can either be a prisoner, or be set free in my mind, according to what God says in His word.

I have to embrace His promises.  I have to remind myself to think of what He says, as truth.

I cannot question God, or argue with God, I cannot think of anything else, but what He says, in matters.  Or yes I know my thoughts, would be unhealthy.

See, you always have to be aware, of what you put in your mind because it does affect the soul.

Bitterness, unforgiveness, not only affects your soul, but your health as well.  And the enemy, the devil will throw these things at you.  He will even use people you love, to get you off track.  But don’t.

IMG_0134So no matter, where you are in life, and I am not a psychologist.  But, I am a child of God, and I don’t need psycho babble, or political correctness, all I realize is I need God.  And the love from my family.

His truth, His love, His understanding.  I get that understanding, by prayer, by truly being repentant, because I miss it sometimes, but I get it from my King James bible.

And that book is holy.  I have proven it by what God says, His commandments to not change it, and so that is my source of truth, to search for answers.  To search for guidance.  To get understanding.

This is why, I try to add King James scriptures always, as a foundation, when I write, these writings, so my thoughts can be right before Him, but also that you can be fed spiritually.   Truth. And have understanding that establishes you, to be the best you can be in Christ.  As you read my writings….

COMMIT THY WORKS UNTO THE LORD, AND THY THOUGHTS SHALL BE ESTABLISHED.  PROVERBS 16:3  KJV.   

Now as I conclude this, always understand, that what we think, even though we may try hard to always have the mind of Christ, we need to understand, Gods ways, are not our ways.  Nor is His thoughts ours.

FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 55:8  KJV.

Don’t frustrate yourself to the point, where you think you are doing everything you can, but you are not seeing results.  Just keep trusting God.  Don’t incline unto your own understanding.  In other words, be aware, you might not be thinking too clearly, and you are not trusting God. We can do that.

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  PROVERBS 3:5  KJV.

Also remember, and this again is why I so hope you take my thoughts to heart in this matter.  Be careful what bible version you use.  Use a King James.  So many folks take Jeremiah 29:11, and they think that scripture says, FOR I KNOW THE PLANS THAT I HAVE TOWARD YOU…

That scripture does not say that.  It states:

FOR I KNOW THE THOUGHTS THAT I THINK TOWARD YOU, SAITH THE LORD, THOUGHTS OF PEACE, AND NOT OF EVIL, TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END.

Jeremiah 29:11.  KJV.

It is important that we are concerned about what “thoughts” God has toward us.  Words matter folks, words that we put in our spirits, words we think, and speak, because they do have power of life and death when they reach our tongues.  We have to be aware, that God has thoughts toward us, but what does he think when he sees we are disobedient, or we are not claiming His true promises?Jesusreconciled2

Food for thought today,

I love you all in Christ,

Just My Thoughts…..

RESPECT THE SPIRITUAL LINES GOD HAS PLACED TO PLEASE THE WILL OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3227.jpegHave you ever wanted something so much, and you look for ways to get it?  I have a pretty bold personality, but there are times, that has gotten me in trouble, as I have disrespected lines, crossed them, and did not let God be God in that situation.

FOR PRECEPT MUST BE UPON PRECEPT, PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT, LINE UPON LINE, LINE UPON LINE, HERE A LITTLE AND THERE A LITTLE  ISAIAH 28:10  KJV

It is a lesson of life. I am more careful now, knowing, what I know about God.  About His commandments, about people, about spiritual principles….

But knowing truth, knowing we reap what we sow, when we disobey is also a lesson of life.

This is such a broad subject to cover.  But, obedience, makes a difference.  To really be aware of lines, one crosses.  So, I want to touch base on when we sin.  When we cross spiritual lines, that denies the will of God in a matter, we will reap what we sow.  Even in the physical.

Because to be honest, sometimes you cannot cross back.  You have to know, that sometimes there are consequences, where you cannot return to a matter.  But then again, with God there is always a way.  And I want to be reminded of that myself, as I write this.

Lets talk about health.  As an example.  Say you smoke.  You could reap bad effects from that if you don’t stop it, repent, and remember that you are the temple of the living God.

DSC_0022.jpgThe spiritual principle is in place.  We are called to be holy, as God is holy.  We are to live a clean life.  Folks, that abuse their bodies, with drugs, alcohol, smoking sin, in adulterous ways, will reap that.  By diseases, unwanted pregnancy. etc. But abortion is not the solution for that.  Anyway….Keep your temple clean.  So you don’t cross a spiritual line, that will affect the physical.

But in general, we have to see, what our disobedience to God  is, when we cross these spiritual lines.  We reap it.

When anyone seeks another entity besides God, that’s dangerous.  So many people think you can play with these spiritual matters.  They cross lines, right into the devils territory.

Have you ever seen the true fruit of an atheist, for example?  They are mean, hateful, vindictive people.  But they have no sweet fruit, because they denied God.  They crossed spiritual lines, perhaps, by even not seeing, they now serve the devil.

No one can be the best they can be if they choose to disregard God, or His ways.  His laws.  By crossing spiritual lines, that do not please God.

Thats the way He made it…DSC_0014

When someone, who came to the throne of God, and walks away, they have to see, they have crossed a spiritual line, of no return, unless they return.  Seeing they are now a backslider.  And repents.

To conclude this, and to wrap this thought up, nicely.  I want you to be mindful of the spiritual lines, you cross, if you disobey God in any regard.  In love, in truth, in obedience, in respect, in honesty.  These lines, have been established, for your own good. Not to be mean, or to hold you in, but mostly to protect you.IMG_1534.jpg

I believe I am thinking this, and writing this, because it has made me realize, that there are some spiritual lines, one should not cross with God, or even other people.  Friends, strangers, etc.  Because if you do, you could do some damage.  But, if one opens their eyes, and really takes a good look, takes time to pray, to repent, to humble themselves, they can learn.  I think I have learned some things…

Maybe you can cross back.  By seeing the cross.

I have a sense even now for me, not to cross a spiritual line.

I am praying about a situation right now, where I want to cross a line.  Where I could be a peacemaker.  But, I know I should not, because I did not cross the lines of respect or honor, to begin with so for me to cross over, would not benefit the situation.  In fact, it would be at a loss for me.  I have to respect the boundary.  If there is to be peace, about it, I would not be the one to make the attempt to cross back.

THE LINES ARE FALLEN UNTO ME IN PLEASANT PLACES; YEA, I HAVE A GOODLY HERITAGE.  PSALMS 16:6  KJV

So, I know I cannot cross that line.  And it made me think about all the other lines, I did cross lines, in my life.  And the lessons I learned.  By being with people, who did not honor me.  Or who used me, or manipulated, my friendship, or even just my good nature.  I have learned the hard way.  So I test and try the spiritual lines, God has placed.  Its for my own good.  So I do have HIS peace about it.  I won’t wrestle with disobeying God.  Because the end result is fruit, and blessings…If I obey, and in this situation.

If I can spare someone to see, to be careful to not cross spiritual lines, that God has placed.  Then maybe.  Just maybe I will please God.  And thats everything to me now.  It means so much to me.  Maybe thats why I am bold, maybe thats why I don’t hold back truth or hide it.  Because of who He is.  He has done so much for me, and I can never repay Him. But I can be careful not to cross spiritual lines…. that offend Him.  Or even hurt what He did on that cross for all of us.

I think I have learned the hard way, in life, about reaping and sowing, and missing out on this or that, because I was not obedient to God.  I sinned.  I took away from myself.  And I am not trying to be hard on myself, because I know Gods grace.  But we do reap what we sow.

I so, take to heart, His truths, His commandments, His ways.  As the way, the truth, and the life.  I pray, never to cross lines, that offend my Lord.

Hope this blesses you,QJF3m39k.jpg-large

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,

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
 
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
 
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (‭Revelation‬ ‭3‬:‭15-22‬ KJV)

I WANT TO BE A SOUL WINNER EVEN FOR THE “LOST” RIGHTEOUS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2277.jpgI want to be a soul winner even for the “lost” righteous.  Does that make sense?  Yea, it does, because there are many who think they are righteous, they think they are saved.  They think their salvation is in tact.  But its not.  They think they have a license to sin.  One needs to repent. 

What they don’t know, is any kind of sin, separates us from God.  

BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE:  NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR:  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 59:1-2.  KJV. 

Lets look at this scripture in more detail. You pray, but you do not get answers.  Why?  We need to all ask ourselves that.  

Look at that second sentence.  It states; But your iniquities have separated between you and your God.  Wow!  That tells me, you gave your heart to Christ, believing you were saved.  But your iniquities have separated you between you and your God.  Your God!  Look at it!  So that tells me, you have sin, on your record.  In the book of life.  

Here, in Exodus 32:33 it tells us:

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK.  

WOW, double Wow!  That book the Lambs book of life, always determines if your name is written in blood, by the blood of Jesus.  If you neglect it, abuse it, treat your salvation shabbily, then yea, your name can be removed.  Blotted out. Look up that key word, in a King James.  (another reason to promote the King James to find truth)

The thing is, and lately, I seem to be in a few of these battles with so called brothers and sisters in Christ, they debate it. They argue it, they bring up other scriptures, that try to contradict the truth, but it can be lost folks.  Salvation can be taken away…..

There is no fear of God.  To many.  We are to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling.  Fear of who?  God Almighty, who holds the keys to heaven and earth.

WHEREFORE, MY BELOVED, AS YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, NOT IN MY PRESENCE ONLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE IN MY ABSENCE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING.  Phillipians 2:12  KJV.

Many, have the misconception, that works don’t cut it.  But it does.  Work it out!  Faith without works is dead.  

FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO.  JAMES 2:26.

A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation or battle with a man, who did not believe he could lose salvation.  He went back and forth, in the conversation.  But what I noticed was that he always made it about him. Or “I” of this, or that.  

And I was trying to get him to see that, yes, salvation could be lost.  But, I believed he was saved now, but he just could not grasp that, the conversation was also about others.  He made it all about him, and thats what the devil did.  Self, I, me, me, me….Thats dangerous, when we cannot see beyond me.

You see, those scriptures above talks about works.  We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling of God.  But we are also commanded, to warn others.  Works, is just telling someone, don’t take your salvation for granted.  

Anyway, after much patience, because this guy was getting on my nerves, he realized, what I was trying to tell him.  That it was not just about him, but about others, who may think their salvation is in tact, but they are lost, they are “Backsliders” and they are in spiritual jeopardy if they die, because they would have unrepented sin.

He finally admitted, and I am paraphrasing his words.  “I was lost, then I was saved, then I was lost, and saved again.  But now I know I am saved.”  

Many, have the misconception, that because they were saved, that it guarantees salvation, even if they sin.  And that is wrong, that is dangerous, and that is really a deception from the devil.  

Look, I can say this as a testimony.  I was saved at an early age.  But I had no sense or value, of how precious my salvation was.  So I sinned.  If I had died, before I repented, I truly believe, I would have lost my salvation.  Once saved is not always saved. 

And its dangerous to believe that, or to influence others that it is safe. 

We are called to warn one another.  Ezekiel 33, and I ask please look at it from a King James.  It tells us, about the righteous.  And if he commits iniquity, all his righteousness, will be forgotten, and he will die.

Die!  We are to have life eternally with Christ.  Christ, died and abolished only the law of sin, and death.

So many have this misconception, that grace will cover it.  That keeping the “law” of God is not necessary.  That is so wrong, if God commands it, or even says it.  It is LAW!  Don’t question it, don’t reason it, don’t ponder on it.  OBEY GODS LAW!

No.  It only covers it, if you repent.  If you have sinned.  Do not misinterpret grace, or Gods goodness. He is not mocked. 

When I was young, I was a soul winner.  I have always tried to be a soul winner, but I believe God is directing me to try and save the righteous, who think they are saved, but are lost, because they do not know King James truth.  They have no fear of God.  They do not repent.  

Its so sad, we have a battle, a big challenge, because so many are misled, misunderstanding, misinterpreting scripture, because they don’t use the truth, and the holiness of a King James bible.  

It makes me sad.  

In Ezekiel 33, that chapter I ask that you read, it tells us to warn people.  

If we do we set ourselves free.  I see it myself, the boldness, God gives me.

And though, my brothers and sisters think I am judging them, that is just a lie from the devil.

I tell them this truth, because I love them because Jesus loves them.  Its not judging.  Its warning.  And warning is love.  Just like Ezekiel 33 tells us to do.  

Just my thoughts, but I want to be a soul winner, for the righteous, who are lost.  

All I know, is if we clear the slate, by even daily repenting, we can ensure our salvation.

DONT REJECT CHRISTIANITY NOT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE FLAKES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0001I feel led to write this.  Perhaps, because I am a seasoned Christian now.  I know, when people read my writings, or they meet me, they may see my light shine.  

It may take a moment or two, because I am reserved in some ways, but if they want to get to know me, or be a friend, they will soon find out I am a Christian.

But not one size fits all, if I could use that as an analogy.   We are all different.  We don’t all believe the same, which is sad, but even I meet Christians, who do not agree with me, or what my King James Bible says.

And I guess, that just comes with the territory.  I guess, I could blame that on different Bible versions, as to why we are not all on the same page with God.  Or I could blame that on religion.  Rules, regulations, rituals and traditions, that are made by men, and groups.

And I think its sad, that we are not all agreeing with what God expects.  Because there are scriptures, that tell it like it is, and people do not know what it says, but they heard something, from a pastor, or in passing, and they think they have the answer.  

But I truly believe in the King James Bible, for that. It is still holy, and anointed, and not corrupted.  I have said, that the King James Bible is like a puzzle sometimes, the answers are here there, and throughout that book.  

I have met a lot of different Christians in my lifetime.  Some, that are flaky, and just say they are a Christian by name. But they don’t seem to have any true substance.  Then, I have met some, who are knowledgeable, yet they get puffed up, and hit people on the head with the bible.  This could be a turn off to some.  

Turning people off, about God, that is just wrong, in the sight of God.  We have a responsibility, to speak truth, but not to distort it.  We will be accountable for the souls, we bring to the Kingdom of God, or turn away.  

I want you to think about that.  

I have had to be really careful with that.  Because I am knowledgeable, but, I remember, what Christ said.  

That we would be known by the Love.  That should be the first thing you should see in a true Christian.  A love, thats in their eyes, a love, that is compassionate, kind, considerate, not jealous, or competitive, but just something about them, that shows that Christ is their Lord and savior.  No matter what they look like, or their status is in life, there is that love….

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  John 13:35.  KJV.

If I see the love, then I am more apt to be patient with someone, even if they do not agree with me.  But I have to make sure they see, my love, as well.

We are all on the vine, with Christ, so to speak at different levels.  He is the vine, we are the branches.  One may be seasoned, but the other may not be.  And so, there is always that chance, that there will be a difference of opinion.

The thing is though, Christianity, has taken a bad rap in many ways.  I have heard it to be called a religion of hate.  Yet, Christ was very clear about loving God, and loving one another.  It has to be seen.

I myself, have been turned off by those who have come in the name of the Lord, but they were wolves in sheeps clothing.  And they have no mercy.  Nor love.  They also have a Pharisee spirit, and they rule by the law.

Then there are those, who have a Pharisee spirit, but they reject the law.  And believe by grace only.  Those are flaky, pharisee spirits to me.  Because scripture is very clear, that Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

Being a Christian, will make you different.  But its a process, and a growth, and you cannot expect to have discernment, or spiritual gifts and callings, until you grow, and know holy word, and pray.  By first of all being obedient to God, and yes, His laws.  And fearing Him.  I am not playing with words, fear God.  

Scripture says, we are different.  In fact, it says, we can be peculiar, if you are reading this from a King James version.  Lord, only knows what it says in other Bible versions.  

BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE; THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HATH CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT: WHICH IN TIME PAST WERE NOT A PEOPLE, BUT ARE NOW THE PEOPLE OF GOD:  WHICH HAD NOT OBTAINED MERCY, BUT NOW HAVE OBTAINED MERCY.  I PETER 2:9-10.  KJV.

To get to the point, of my writing, I implore you don’t give up on God, by some of the peculiar Christians you have met, who are flaky to you.  Where it may seem what they do, is crazy.  Or that they even believe.  Yes, there are some nutty Christians.  Sad to say.  But there are also some, who desire truth, in the inner parts of their soul, and they search for God, and they find Him.  

For me, it began by seeing I was a sinner.  That we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  I came to a place, where I hit the bottom of the barrel, and I repented, and in fact, repent daily….. letting go of pride. I gave my life to Christ, because He truly did save me.  But you don’t see the fruit of that, until you come to that place where you give in to God.  We can get the mind of Christ…. by the Holy Spirit.  

Even though I know God, I am careful not to get puffed up, with pride, or to make myself look better then anyone.  I believe in the Love Christ told us about.

I don’t come from a place, “where its name it or claim it.”  Or where, I believe God is an ATM.  “To holler for a dollar.”  That must be so insulting to Him.  Yet many have a distorted, view of who God, and is not.  

Open your heart, and let God speak to you.  Again, I recommend a King James bible, for it is holy, and anointed.  And yes, be careful of the Christians you meet.  But be careful of all people.  We are to test the spirits. 

If you are truly praying, and knowledgeable, about what Gods word says, you will try, and test the spirits.  The Holy Spirit, will show you. 

Thats all I can say for now, till I write again.  But don’t reject the relationship, you can have in Christ.  Thats your responsibility, not others.  You have to work at it.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ, 

Elena Ramirez
