LONGING FOR TRUTH AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3137LONGING FOR TRUTH….AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD….. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
I think all of us long for truth, theres that part of us, that just wants straight answers. No bull, no games, no compromises.
That really does come from a spirit, of truth, that can only come from God. You need to know there are two spirits, in this. Good, and evil. Remember the tree of good and evil? God did not want us eating from that tree. Eve, and Adam well they did eat of it. And it was sin, in Gods eyes.
Disobedience.
Today, still holds true, good and evil. And He does not want us to eat from that. We need to search for the truth, His truth. We have to be careful, because we can be so easily deceived, by religion, false bibles, lies, wolves in sheep clothing.
The root of that comes from the enemy, the devil, and he wants to deceive you, and keep you from truth.
Friends, search for the truth. For God, to please Him, for yourself, for your family, for just a sense of knowing whats right and wrong.
Beware of the traps from the enemy. Beware of lies.
Get hungry for truth. To be fulfilled. I still want Gods plan, away from the sin. I don’t want the sin, because I know how it can steal from your very own blessings…..
Repentance, is the only way I know we can get it. Humbleness, love…..Don’t let anything steal truth from you. Don’t let the tickling of ears, become your distraction.
Go for truth. Get it, King James truth, and grow….in truth. To be fulfilled. To renew your spirit. To understand, to gain wisdom. Truth, will never let you down. Don’t deny truth, or you become your own enemy.

Have you ever had company over, and gave your “clean” house a thorough cleaning?

I liken this to our souls as well.  You see, when you know company is going to come over, and visit, say for some kind of event, or holiday, you take the extra time, to shine it up, dust, sanitize, and make your home presentable, so your guests, will find it in the best condition.

Recently for Labor Day, we had family over.  We are not one for entertaining, but because it was family, we wanted to bless them, and so we did extra, and more when it came to our cleaning.

Now mind you, we keep a clean house, anyway, we are organized for the most part, and we keep up with daily chores, washing dishes, sanitizing etc.

But I have to admit, dusting, is not one of my priorities.  In fact, I hate to dust.  It still gets done, but it is not done constantly.

But it made me think, about our souls.  I don’t think many of us, want to admit this, but I truly believe, even the best Christian, has to maintain your soul, and clean up some things.

Its called growing, it is called repenting, and it is necessary, for your own growth, to every once in a while do some reflecting, and pray, and ask God if there is something that has to be cleansed?

You see, just as we had guests over, Christ visits our hearts, and souls as well.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Christ to find something in my soul, that would “grieve the Holy Spirit.”

I just know myself that well, when I am feeling off, maybe cold, or indifferent, that I have to run to the throne, and seek my dear Lord.  I need to repent, I need to be humble, I need to cry to Him, and say Lord, I don’t understand.  But help me, help my faith.

I guess this is why I have written my two books, about faith, and curses, because I so want to please God, and I want to help others as well, but I know, how things can affect me, when I am not right with God, or I am off.

There are so many ministries, that do not address, this, in fact, they are into self, or pleasing yourself, and that is so wrong.  We have to make pleasing God the priority.

So you have to do some reflecting, you do have to discipline yourself, you do have to ask God, and “try” to do that housecleaning.  Yes, God will make the difference, and wash you by the blood of Jesus, but you have to check out your robes of righteousness.  Is there a stain, from a thought, a sin, a place, where hopefully you did not let the devil in?

You see, these are our souls.  We have to maintain them.  The Bible tells us to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling.  Oh the fear of God is such a good thing.  It keeps us out of trouble.

Yes we can all use help, in cleaning, as if our own homes.  I would love to have a maid, but since, I don’t I have to do it.  In this photo, my husband and son stepped in, and helped a little.  That was so nice, and I was so touched by their help, I took a photo of them.  God bless them….

A good friend, may help you, counsel you, and even extend grace, when it comes to matters like this.  To help you as well.

But it is our responsibility, to dust ourselves off, and maintain our relationship with Christ.  Friend, don’t take your soul for granted, even if you have accepted Christ.

Yes, you were given a clean garment, a robe of white, when you made Christ your Lord, and savior.  And He is so wonderful, He will give it to anyone, who calls on Him, and believes.  But after that you better watch it, and know for you walk in this earth, and the enemies goal is to deceive you, and to cause you to stumble, and yes fall.

And if you have not friend, accepted Christ I implore you to seek Christ.  Make it right with Him.  This is not about religion, this is about knowing the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  Make it right with Christ.  This is your soul, and someday, when you die, you do not want to have known you had the chance even by reading this, and not making it right with Christ.  Turn to Him, seek Him, repent, and make Him your Lord and savior.  You will never regret it.  I am so glad, He found me, but I made Him my Lord and savior.

I am a firm believer in repenting, daily, I suppose its like my daily dusting.  But I do it because I so want to please father, and like I said, I just know when something is off, and when I do this, my joy, my sense of peace returns.  God knows, when our spiritual houses are clean, and I want Him to see it clean, and acceptable for His presence.

Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts.  Elena Ramirez

My soul cleaveth unto the dust:  quicken Thou me according to Thy word.  I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me:  teach me Thy statutes.  Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works.  My soul melteth for heavings: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word.  Remove from me the way of lying:  and grant me Thy law graciously.  I have chosen the way of truth; thy judgments have I laid before me.  I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame.  I will run the way of thy commandments when Thou shalt enlarge my heart.  Psalm 119:25-32

I love the King James scriptures, and I try to tell you in love, how important it is to use a King James, but there is no way any other version, can speak this truth like this, the way God intended it to be, and the anointing of this scripture speaks volumes.  In fact, this entire chapter, talks about the word, and His law, and His testimonies.  I recommend reading all of Psalms 119 from a King James Bible…it is long, but it so ministers to my heart when I read it concerning Gods word.  Dust off your bible, and read it.  Why would anyone want less?  And to deny yourself Gods food for thought, is starving yourself.  Another thing perhaps, to write about another day…..

LOYALTY TO GOD AND OTHERS PROVES LOVE


In considering the greatest commandment Jesus gave us,in Matthew 22:37-39, we are to Love God with all our hearts, soul, and mind, and to love one another, I contemplate, what would it take first and foremost, to show that?

And what came to me, is loyalty. Loyalty to God, and to others, is a characteristic hard to find. I suppose, it does need to be developed. To be aware of it. To please God.

I always, wonder, how God felt, when Adam, and Eve, talked to the snake in the garden, and instead of going to God, to find out if the devil, was lying, they believed the devil, and were deceived. We all reaped, the curse of that sin. What would have been different, if they had been loyal to God, then, and asked him? Our world would be different, there would be no curse. Adam, and Eve would have shown their loyalty to God.

Honoring someone, with your friendship, and loyalty, is a great gift, one, that I always look for myself, in a person. But it is only shown, when tested, to be proven.

To develop our loyalty, I am sure God does test us. To see how we will react, or what we will do, in certain situations. Testing the spirit, to see, if we will come out as gold. Refined, by his hand.

He sees, and knows everything…It kind of makes you want to look and see within, to see what you are displaying to him. Testing yourself….

As true sons, and daughters of the King of Kings, we are a royal priesthood, and loyalty, to our Lord, should be evident in our character, and in our love to one another.

Christ, was loyal to God, for us, he went to the cross, and gave of his life. So, the curse would be broken, and so that we can have life abundantly.

Worshiping, God in spirit, and in truth, as the scripture says, God is looking for this. Those, who will worship him, in spirit, and in truth. Today, what can I do, to show my loyalty to God? In loving others, and in loving him, with all my heart, soul, and mind?

Feel free to share, if this blesses you, it may bless someone else, in love….

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

Father, just a simple prayer of Hope, and honor to you.  I ask to bless you.  I ask, for a loyal heart, to bless you, and that you would see that in me.  To you, and to my true friends, I will be loyal.  Help me, correct me, if I am off balance in this.  For your glory, in Jesus name.  Amen

AVOID THE SPIRIT OF STRIFE


The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water;  therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.  Proverbs 17:14

“Avoid The Spirit of Strife”  It is a spirit, that you allow, when you give in to be angry, agitated, and moved by circumstances.  From others, or even from yourself.  It does come from the devil.  Not from God.  And the words above, “avoid the spirit of strife” rings in my heart, and thoughts….I do want to be ever so careful, not to get into a spirit of strife.

Anger, hate, jealousy, can contribute to strife.   An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.  Proverbs 29:22 It takes a person, out of their normal, every day, sense of peace, that they can have, and can cause them to get angry, and rude, and out of control.

There is a famous lady on television, who has recently received notoriety, for this same issue.  She will get in your face, and tell you who she is, and without hesitation, she will threaten, and insult you, and try to intimidate you.  You might even guess, who she is, but I would not tell you, even if you did.  Because, love covers a multitude of sins.

I don’t want to hurt people by bringing up their characteristics, whether to degrade them, or to make sport of them.  But nobody, likes being around people like that.  Because they are inconsistent, unreliable, and you just can’t trust them.  They are like timebombs…explosive, and it comes from a spirit of strife.

But, I bring it up, because I guess I can relate to it.  When I was growing up, in the tough part of town, I was always challenged.  I remember the first fight, I faced.  I did not want to fight.  I was challenged, and I just wanted to get along, and be myself.  I did not think, that what I did to this person merited, an opportunity to fight.  But, here I was, faced with the challenge, and I had to fight.  I knew even then, if I did not face this person, I would get beat up.  Physically, I had to defend myself.

Some may argue, that to avoid a fight, would mean to walk away.  And I don’t think I could have done that, it was that challenging.  But the thing about it was, I learned, how to be strifeful from that incident.

When I was challenged myself, I would get this bad attitude, and be in someones face myself, to try and prove, I was superior, and don’t mess with me.  Sometimes, it worked, and sometimes, it got me into more trouble….Lol…  And I can kind of laugh about it now.

But I tell you all in sincerity, I only learned how to get out of that spirit, by the truth, and love of Jesus Christ.  But it also taught me to be aware of it….”To avoid the spirit of strife.”  I suppose, its like an alcoholic, or a drug user, or even a smoker, who quits, cold turkey, but then when tempted, can get back into it.

When God blesses, or takes something away, he takes it away from you.  I can honestly say that now.  When I get in a position, where that agitation or anger, arises, to get into a spirit of strife, I know better.   (Love) does not behave itself, unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil.  I Corinthians 13:5

I know, that so many of us, though, react, by past experiences, or from learning this, terrible, outlet, by getting into strife.  For whatever reason, and we pass it down, to one another.  It is terrible, and sad, so many people, have done things, losing control, being angry, and hurting others.  Because of this spirit of strife.  Our courtrooms, our jails, are filled with those who have submitted themselves to strife.  Hell is pretty full, for that same reason.  Why?

When Christ tells us to love one another, to forgive, to bless those that hurt us, to even love our enemies.  What reward do we have, if we only bless those who love us, or treat us nice?  It is a choice, ladies and gentlemen.  And yes, be ladies, be gentlemen.  Don’t let anger move you to violence, or to do stupid things.

Even if you are provoked.  Now I am still not a pushover.  But, I have found a balance in this.  I walk in love.  Even here, writing, and sharing, and being opened, to social networks etc.  People, can say, some pretty mean things, behind their computers.

But, am I going to lose my peace about it?  No.  I will not render evil, for evil.  I Thessalonians 5:15 See that none, render evil for evil, unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves and to all men.  

Trusting God, walking in love, and just doing what he tells me to do, keeps me out of trouble.  But it has come with just knowing, it takes time, it takes love, and it does take an effort, to avoid the spirit of strife.  Avoiding murmuring people, complainers, who are also very scornful, also keeps me out of a spirit of strife.  For they know not, that they are being used by the enemy, to stir up strife.  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  Psalms 1:1

The world, may very well go crazy, and you see, some strange things in the news, on television shows, etc.  But why don’t they teach us or the world, to love one another?  They don’t because it would mean one would need to see the greatest love of all, and that is from Jesus Christ…..He was the greatest example, of love.  He avoided strife, even when they took him, and crucified him.

Dear ones, Christ paid the price for each one of us.  Let us be wise, submit to God, resist the devil, and love one another.  God  can take that anger away, that hate, that sense of helplessness, to give you a victory, to give you a sense, of who you can be in Christ. Avoid the spirit of strife….for the sake of Love.  Gods love….

If you need help in this, I pray you go to the throne of God, and ask God to help you, and to take away that anger, that really is a spirit of strife.  Start meditating on Gods word, fill up your cup, with love, and peace.  Turn from anything, that makes you angry, or strifeful.  Its not worth it.  It could even give you bad health.  So learn, to avoid the spirit of strife.

Just my thoughts, in love, I pray, this Prayer of Honor and Hope, myself, and pray it blesses you.

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor and Hope…

Almighty God, great King, who I adore, and love, humble before you, I seek you.  Lord, take away my anger, and help me not to be a pawn of the enemy.  Help me, to walk in love with others.  Diffuse this anger, or frustration within me, so I will not get into a spirit of strife.  Let love, and peace surround me, with beauty, as to who you are.  I pray, my spirit, will be obedient, to avoid the spirit of strife.  So, that I may please you.  Lord, I pray no weapon formed against me, or my loved ones would prosper, as I obey you in this.  Always be my hedge of protection, by the blood of Jesus, send angels, to be my protecter.  Help me to bless others, so that I know, the love of Christ in this.  Take the spirit of strife away from me, so I may avoid it.  In Jesus name.  Amen

WHAT IS YOUR SPIRITUALISM BASED ON? THE CLUE SIGNS…..


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

DO YOU HAVE THE MENTALITY AND SPIRITUALITY OF A VICTIM OR SOMEONE VICTORIOUS?


I can only relate this to myself, to understand, or to see, because I live with myself.  If you get my drift.  I know who I was before Christ.  I was a loser. With a victims mentality.

But, I know who I am in Christ, now.  Victorious. Able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13.

So, I know, that through Christ, I am more than a conqueror, the victory is mine. Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him, that loved us.  Romans 8:37.

I am a winner, because for most of my life, I have had to fight.  And I have not won all battles.  But when I let God fight my battles I win.  I know, in Gods word, that the battle is his.  I Samuel 17:47. And he is always, victorious.  So because of his word, and because of Christ.  I am victorious.

But, I have not always had this mentality/spirituality.

I express it, here, as being a form of mentality/spirituality, because thats where it starts.  It starts in your head.  As a man thinks, so is he.  Provers 23:7. But it is a spirit as well because we are either serving God, or serving the devil, in our spirituality.  Whether one wants to believe this or not. These are principles of God.  And you will either choose God, or his advesary.  Which I do not recommend. But just know this….We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Romans 3:23

Before I knew Christ, and before I knew his word, the Holy Bible, I definitely had a victims mentality/spirituality. Because everything, I based it on, was on my own examples of life.  There was no foundation for being victorious, because I had no goal to work for, in the sense, that I could know who I could be.  Or even more so, who God was. Knowing God, understanding God, comes from his Holy word.  But not everyone opens the Bible.  Even Christians, who have a victim mentality/spirituality.

Many of us, do not always have strong family backgrounds. Loving, nurturing homes.  Some of us fall through the cracks of society.  Some have been hurt and abused, by people, over and over again.  Some are not always able to have a good education, or able to get above poverty.

So, internally, one may begin, thinking, that they are not good enough.  That they are victims. That everyone is against you.  Thats a victims mentality.  Afraid, fearful, and not trusting.  Thats a spirit of fear, and Gods word says, he has not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  II Timothy 1:7. But if you do not know that, or know Gods word, how are you going to make that distinction, again, between the devil, and God?

Nonetheless, we go through things, that make us extremely cautious.  No matter what our background is, because we have learned….

That you cannot trust everyone.  Even some of those, that have said, they come in the name of the Lord.  You cannot always trust them.

Sadly, that could be most everyone, because not all people are trustworthy.  Even if they do have good backgrounds.  Because we all have a sin nature.  The Bible tells us we are born of the devil.   That he is our Father.  Who wants to believe that?  But it is true, unless you get born again.  And live for the Lord.

But one must truly understand, that in order, to change, or to be the best we can be, with a victorious mentality and spirituality, one, needs to see, and recognize that Jesus Christ is Lord, and savior.  He is the only way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6.

This is how we recognize, and know, we can have a mind change.  To obtain the characteristics of God in his love.  To make God your Father! And to have eternal redemption, by the blood of Jesus.

So in this world, where people will let you down, or hurt you, who can you trust?

You can trust, Jesus Christ!  For Christ is trustworthy.  He will never leave or forsake you. Hebrews 13:5. When you begin, knowing who Christ is, understanding his love. Understanding his obedience to God the father, for the plan of mankind. Understanding Gods love, the Father, that he had to make a way, for us to be saved, because as He is a holy God, he could not tolerate sin.

He wants us to see, that we were created in his image, that by him, we could do all things through Christ who strengthen us.  That we had a way to be saved, not only for salvation, but here on earth. For our sins do separate us from a Holy God.  So when you see, you are made in his image, you see yourself victorious, not the victim.  Because you understand, he can heal you.  That is spiritually, and physically.  For by his stripes, that he took on his back, and his suffering, in all areas.  Because of that, we can be healed.  To no longer be victims, but victorious.

Many do not know, the plan of salvation.  Or if they have heard of it, they think, that they have sinned too much, or done, something so heinous, or evil, that there is no way God would forgive them.  But he will….But not knowing that, one will continue, with the victims mentality.  Never a winner, always a loser.  And on, and on, and on….and in that process, also hurting others.

When I finally made a decision, to try and do things Gods way, I had to make the commitment, to turn from my sins.  I had to to make the commitment, to try and do things Gods way.  Now no one is perfect, and even in this walk with Christ, I have learned, it is a process.  No one, hits one with a magic wand, and everything goes away, or appears.  That does not come from God, and if thats what you are expecting, it does not work that way.  Even well meaning Christians, who do not know Gods word, still can have a victims mentality.

But it comes, by making a commitment, daily, to search for God, to read his word, to love others, as Christ loved us, and to learn these principles from God, that makes for a better life.  Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.  Proverbs 16:3

For a better way.  Being victorious, is a choice.  That is not demanded, or expected, for others to do it your way.  It comes from doing it Gods way.

I can only conclude, as I close this, that I don’t know you.  I don’t know your circumstances, your pain, your hurt, your lack of self-confidence, or self-esteem, or why you are the way you are.  But there is one who does know.  That is God.  And He loves you so very, very much, and will accept you as you are.  But on his terms.  Not yours.

He is able to work through, all the  pain, all the disappointments, and will make you victorious for his name.  But you have to decide once and for all you, that you, no longer want to be the victim. But victorious, because He is your Lord and savior.  Its a choice.  It always has been…..

So how do you change your mentality and spirituality?  By coming to the cross, a sinner, who has maybe already done this….But come again, give your victim mentality to God, ask for his protection.  Renew your mind, by his word, and let your words that you speak reflect, who God is. Not your problem, not the past, but the plan, he has for you.  This is very important.  The words you speak are life or death, in this.  You need to change your words to reflect Gods words, in who he has called you to be.  No longer, the victim, but victorious.  Its all there in his word.  But you have to search for it, in this daily process….  Never, ever, ever give up though.  And forgive those, who have victimized you.  As you do that, the poison of all hurts, will be removed.  That you will see immediately.  The blood of Jesus, is what makes you victorious.  Never forget the sacrifice, of Christ for you in this.  I PRAISE GOD, HALLELUJAH FOR THIS!!!

You will be victorious!!  Just trust God…..

Just my Thoughts, with love, from Christ,

Victorious,

Elena Ramirez

See, I have set before thee this day, to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply:  and the Lord thy God, shall bless thee in the land, whither thou goes to possess it.  But if thine heart turn away, so that thou will not hear but shall be drawn away and worship other gods, and serve them.  I denounce unto you this day, that you shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whether thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life, and death, blessing, and cursing:  Therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.  Deuteronomy 30:16-18

A Prayer of Honor+

Father, my Lord, who I adore, and trust, I thank you, that by you, by Christ, by your holy spirit, I can be victorious, in all things.  Lord, sometimes, I can get weary, as we all do.  But I rest in you.  I trust you.  I rely on your promises.  And because I do, I claim the battle is yours.  Not mine.  Lord, I pray, whoever is reading this, would know the same thing too.  As we rest in you, in love, and trust, and by your word.  You fight our battles, you make a way.  You take back what the devil has stolen.  And by you, and you alone, we have victory.  I claim that in the name of Jesus, and I plead the blood.  For to have the victory, is to have the mind of Christ.  And that only comes by you, and your holy word.  I love your word, I cherish it, and I thank you my Lord, God.  For the victory, in Jesus name.  Thank you for changing my mentality/spirituality from a victims, to victorious, by Christ, and his blood shed on the cross.  Thank you, that I am a new person, and victorious.  Hallelujah,  In all things.  In Jesus name.  Amen
