UNDERSTANDING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SPIRITUALISM AND MENTAL ILLNESS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1116.jpgFirst of all, as my disclaimer:

I am not a psychiatrist, I am not in the business, of telling anybody, why they have a mental illness.

But, I am someone who has learned so much from God.  And I have seen things in the spirit realm that have taught me, there is a connection between spiritualism and mental illness.  Or the battle in the mind.  The sense of no peace, the challenge of being stable.  Or unstable.  

It comes from two sources.  And you have to see this from the perspective of your own spirit.  Either good or evil.  God or the devil.  And the foundation of your mental health, will be determined by your spiritual health.  

Who rules your spirit? This is the question, you most definitely need to ask yourself.  To find out yourself within, who rules your soul?  Because this will determine your behavior, and your motives, your mental health, by your spiritualism.  

By the choices you make, with God, or the devil.  You have no other choice.  You may think you do, but it will always result from the consequences, of the choice to believe in God.  Or the enemy.  

By your choice….this is always a choice.  But the principles are in place, and will determine “fruit.”

To obey God, to take His commandments, His law to heart.  To fear God, to depart from evil, and to submit to God.  Or to give into the devil.  To disobey God.  With Temptations, disbelief, etc.  See the difference. 

Scripture tells us, “submit” to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  That key word, is “submitting” to God.  Until you do, you will have that battle in the mind.  See the enemy is a spirit of confusion.  He is known to come, kill, steal, and destroy.  He is a mocker.  He is jealous, he was of God, so he is also jealous if you try and make God your Lord and savior.  He wants to steal the glory from God.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7.  KJV.  

So, if you do not believe in God, you will be tossed to and fro.  That spirit, will dominate you, and your behavior, so that you may do things that are not kind, good, or even healthy for yourself.  The spirit, will lead you to do things, that are evil.  To even think evil.  You may have not acted on those thoughts, but they are there, and that is sin.  For lack of a better word.  So that will dictate to you, and control you, in what you do.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, TOSSED TO AND FRO, AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See the above scripture, reinforces what I am always saying about doctrine, because other bible versions are corrupt.  And it deceives.  You will be tossed to and fro, even if you think you are safe, your not, because your word is corrupt, if you use these fake versions.  

If a person, is totally submitted to Christ.  Even by the word they choose in a King James.  Wanting to obey God, fearing God of consequences of sin, prayerful, in a relationship, the spirit, of God, will lead.  There will be no mental illness.  

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.  

I don’t care what people think or try to dictate to me, I know the difference.  They have not walked in my shoes.  They may mock.  But God is not mocked, and they will reap that.  But I know, I have had my part, to try and please God.  To pray, to obey Him, His commandments.  To love….

You see, I was lost.  When I was lost that spirit, of the devil led me, and I made so many mistakes in judgment, and in my own personal life.  My moral code, was damaged, because I did not submit to God.  I actually had no moral code.  Or fear of God. Concerning consequences on earth, or if I had died.  And that is a very dangerous place to be.  Because we will all stand before God.  Hell is real.  Hell on earth is just as real.  I thank Him and praise Him that He saved me, taught me.  

But when God found me, and I recall the night, I had a revelation of who Christ was.  I submitted to God.  For your own revelation, think of what Christ did for you on that cross.  

Now you cannot, be partial in this, and just say you believe in God.  Because scripture tells us, even the devil believes in God. 

The key is totally giving your heart, life, mind, soul to God, so you can grow spiritually.  So you can have peace.  Scripture also tells us, that there is no peace to the wicked.  

Begin by repenting.  Even if you don’t think you have done anything wrong.  This cleans the slate.  Be humble in the sight of God.  Ask God to forgive you.  Even for unbelieving.   This is why I actually believe in daily repentance.  Because we can sin, even unknowingly.  and we all do sin, folks, and come short of the glory of God.  Our works, can be filthy rags….

The way to enrich your mind, is get a King James bible.  As you know, I do not support any other bible.  Because they are corrupted.  Exactly what the enemy wants you to do, so you get static.  You get part truth, part lie.  You will not grow, until you change your word.  And you may have a battle in the mind, until you do.

Stay away from things or situations, that feed your spirit.  Like evil movies.  Evil books, anything that can plant seeds of evil, or doubt in your mind.  Stay away from evil people.  Toxic people. 

You have to have the mind set, to want to please God.  And when you do you will be released, your eyes will be opened, and you can begin the process of healing mentally, because you are healing spiritually.  

If I start to watch a movie, or read a book, that I know has evil spiritualism, I put it away from me.  You don’t want to tempt yourself.  

And you don’t want to let in spirits, that have been cleansed back into your soul.  They will come in worse, in greater capacity, that is not great for your soul.  

THEN GOETH HE, AND TAKETH WITH HIMSELF SEVEN OTHER SPIRITS MORE WICKED THEN HIMSELF, AND THEY ENTER IN AND DWELL THERE:  AND THE LAST STATE OF THAT MAN IS WORSE THAN THE FIRST.  EVEN SO SHALL IT BE ALSO UNTIL THIS WICKED GENERATION.  MATTHEW 12:45  KJV.

The bottom line is, to be in fear of God, by choosing His Holy spirit, to guide you.  So, you can be healed mentally.  I truly believe that.  With all my heart.  See you fear God, so you don’t have to have fear in the mind of something or someone else.  Thats the key:

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.  II TIMOTHY 1:7.  KJV. 

I always recommend, finding help, if you are in that desperate place.  But God will help you, if you seek Him.  And I hope you find your way, take this to heart.  Because Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  Read John 14:6 from a King James.  

Feel free to share this post, you might help someone, see why they act the way they do.  You might save a soul.   

Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

Talking about Yoga my thoughts…

What I see is that compromise is so easily thought. And I think the body of Christ not only in this is compromising to do Yoga as a Christian, but it has lost the fear of God. From watered down Bibles, scriptures not taken to heart, and just letting “that feel good mentality” by grace is just wrong.  

Folks remember, what Christ did for you on that cross.  You do not want to compromise that.  I know you don’t but many of you are so deceived, by the ways of the world.  And really thats the enemy trying to steal your souls.  

We need to see this, not only for all of us but individually. Your not judging someone if you tell them something is wrong. Your warning them. And we are called to do that.

This is wrong I believe in the sight of God. Because the spiritualism comes from idolatry practices. And that is sin in the sight of God. I don’t know about you all but I fear God. And I work out my own salvation with trembling and fear.

When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live. Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal. When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. (Ezekiel 33:8-18 KJV)

JESUS SAID, I AM THE RESURRECTION, AND THE LIFE:  HE THAT BELIEVETH IN ME THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE: AND WHOSOEVER LIVETH AND BELIEVETH IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE.  BELIEVEST THOU THIS? JOHN 11:25

Father,

I know I am a sinner and I ask you to forgive me.  I believe that

Christ died for me on the cross, and shed his blood.  I want to turn away from my sins.  Save me.  Jesus, come into my heart, and be my personal Lord.  I promise to obey you and follow you all the days of my life.  Help me, break these curses, that have held me back in my life.  Break the chains off of me spiritually, and physically.  Please take the desire of things, that offend you away from me.  Send your help to me, by your Holy Spirit.  I want to live a good life, help me to seek you in your word, and to grow stronger in your ways.  Help me to study your word, to be approved unto you, my God, a person not ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth and to confess you as my Lord, and Savior.  Lord, give me Love, help me to Love others, and to forgive, so you will forgive me, and hear my prayers.  I do not want anything to separate me from your Love.

Help me find a church, where I can be in fellowship with other Christians who will help me grow.  I pray now, and believe I will know you in a sweeter way.  I see myself clothed in robes of righteousness, and standing at your throne, as you embrace me.  I see you write my name in the Book of Life, and the angels are rejoicing over this sinner, who is made new through you.  I thank you, and give you praise for receiving me as your child in your Kingdom.  When I die, because of this prayer, I will go to your heavenly kingdom.  I will remember this day, as a day of new beginnings in my walk with you.  Thank you Lord, again, for dying on the cross, forgiving me of my sins, and giving me Salvation through Christ, and by embracing me with your Love…..I confess, Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior, forever, Christ will live in me.  In Jesus name.  Amen I believe….

THEREFORE WHOEVER CONFESSES ME BEFORE MEN, HIM I WILL ALSO CONFESS BEFORE MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.  BUT WHOEVER DENIES ME BEFORE MEN, HIM, I WILL ALSO DENY BEFORE MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 10:32

ARE YOU EATING AT THE LORDS TABLE AND THE DEVILS TABLE? ~ YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY…..


Have you ever heard, you are what you eat?  That also applies, to what you eat, spiritually, and can be manifested, to the physical as well.  I feel a very strong message here, and I don’t want to gross you out.

But, you may need to see this, if you need to see, what you are doing, may very well be wrong for you, in the sight of God.  I am talking about, what you eat spiritually.  Are you eating the things of Jesus, and the word of God, or are you eating things of the devil, the world, that will decay your spirit, and your soul.  Even to the place, where it may also affect your physical health?  Your salvation?

Look very carefully, at this top photograph.  To the left, is a golden cup, filled with wine.  And a loaf, of bread.  It represents Christ and the blood He shed.  He told us to have communion with him, in remembrance of Him.

To the right, is a clear glass, that is half full,or half empty, depending on your own perception.   Containing wine, and the bread with it, is moldy.  It is decaying.  Which one do you want to eat?  Which one is healthy for you?

Both of these illustrations are symbolic, to what we eat, and who we are, with or without Christ.  The Lord, has been giving me this message, for a while, and now, I sensed, is the time to present it.  For the body of Christ, should understand the sacrifice Christ made.  And I can write a book on this, or at least a great chapter, in my book, if the right publisher came along….

But, we need to see, what are we putting in our bodies.  Spiritually.  What are we eating?  Are we sitting at the table of the Lord, and yet, are we sitting at the table ot the devil?

Are we claiming we are Christians, yet, we are into things, that are offensive to God? What are we reading?  Watching, on television?  Studying?  Are they satanic?  Are they evil?  Are they adulterous?  Do they mock God, and you accept it?  Are they vampire movies, or movies about witches?  Calling evil good? You know Halloween, is just a few months away, but I have seen Christians, who claim they are Christians embrace that Holiday.  What does God see?

All I know, is this, is that Christ, told us, he was the bread of Life.  And for us to in remembrance, take the bread, take the wine, that represented His blood and life, and to live life holy.  His body, broken for us, became the way, for redemption.  He took the curse for us, because He had no sin.  So with that comes, great responsibility on our parts, to be aware not to mix doctrine, not to hate, not to take vengeance, etc.

It also means, and this may sting, but are you giving the devil, alot of attention?  Are you taking your eyes off of Christ, and just seeing the devil do things?  Not aware God is the King of Kings, and has power, to heal you, bless you, change you?  He after all created the heavens and the earth.  Are you letting the devil deceive you?

It means, to the point, that you cannot say you are a Christian, but act like the devil. The sacrifice of Christ, was too great, for us to treat His death, and life, as shabby.

To the world, they have no true understanding of that. They do not understand, that God made a way through Christ.  But do we as Christians understand this as well?

Dear one, this stale moldy bread, represents what can happen, if we do not see the picture in this.  We cannot call ourselves Christians, if we partake in things that are unholy.  Or, offensive to God.  Are you claiming you are a Christian, yet you are going to psychic?  Are you reading your horoscope?  Are you receiving any ungodly counsel?  Are you celebrating evil holidays? (Halloween) Are you mocking, and putting down people of God?  Because you see something wrong.  The world does this kind of foolishness.  We are called to love one another.  When you speak against a prophet of God, that is not good.  This is some dangerous stuff, to mess with.  It is spiritual food, we are eating, and sometimes, sharing with others.  Our influence, affects others as well.  So we have to as Christians, know the difference.

For God warns us, to be careful, he commands us, to live life holy unto him.  As you can see in this scripture, of Hosea 9:4, (READ IT YOURSELF) God is saying those who do not eat right before him, and again talking spiritually.  They have no place in His Kingdom.

This subject has so many categories to comprehend, but the bottom line, is it can also affect your Salvation…..What if you lost your place of salvation, because you did not heed this?

The world, is greedy.  It cheats, it lies, it cuts corners, it steals, from its own.  The devil, has deceived so many people, in so many ways, and takes, he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  What gets me so angry, as Christians, if we continue to be so passive in this, many will fall.  Many will be lost to satan, because we as Christians, are not eating ourselves, bread, and wine, that is truly holy, and that of Christ.  How we be a good example, if we do not see it?  How can we tell people the difference?  And this is not to judge anyone, but to seek God, and judge ourselves.

I have not heard a message on this.  And if God used me, to bring it to the forefront, I would.  Its that important.  We cannot claim to be Christians, and sit at the devils table.  We must see it.  We must make the choice, and change, by repenting first, and withdrawing from the devil.  Giving him no place in our lives.  Doing everything, Christ came to fulfill, not to abolish, but to fulfill, in our lives.


I pray, my cup is worthy, for even as I began writing this, I sensed, how important it is to God.  How vital it is to our own Salvation, if we recognize this.  To not eat at the devils table.

To live and that which we eat, unto Christ, to the best of our ability, because of who He is in us, to live life, in remembrance of him.  Eating at the table of righteousness.

And with a closing thought, grateful, so very grateful to God.  For all of His blessings, for His love, that made a way through Christ.  Yes, giving thanks before a meal is shared, bringing Christ to the table.  Making mention of him, in remembrance of him.  Giving thanks….For that is a feast, that is not corrupted, by anything.  It will not be manifested into decay.  The devils fruit, will decay, and within, if you let it.

Just my thoughts, a very strong, but firm message, I do say, in His love.  What are you eating?  For you are what you eat spiritually, and physically.

Elena Ramirez

 I Corinthians 10:21

YE CANNOT DRINK THE CUP OF THE LORD, AND THE CUP OF DEVILS; YE CANNOT BE PARTAKERS OF THE LORDS TABLE, AND OF THE TABLE OF DEVILS.

A Prayer of Hope and Honor

Father, Lord God Almighty, King of Kings, I adore you, and praise you.  Lord, I sense such an urgency in my heart, as I write this post, for “Just My Thoughts.” And I pray, we would take this to heart, to see, and recognize, that which we eat, is manifested to our physical, and spiritual being.  That we must eat unto holiness, and yes giving thanks to you.  Grateful.  Turning from the things of the devil.  Not looking at him, but at you.  `Walking in love, these are all things, of the fruit of the spirit, that require, our obedience.  Lord, I just pray, this may open someones eyes, and they would not eat from the devils table.  Obedient to you, in love, and for that someone who does not know you, I pray, they would see, and give their hearts to you.  No longer eating from the table of the devil.  But unto Christ.  For he gave his blood, and body for us.  By His stripes we truly are healed.  Physically, and spiritually.  Let us take this with great understanding and wisdom, because of your great love.  Thank you Father.  In Jesus name.  Amen

DO YOU KNOW YOURSELF?


God knows you better then you know yourself! After all He created you. He knows your heart, your desires, your wants, your sins, you faults, flaws etc..He knows everything about you. The wonderful thing is, when you know Christ, and what He stands for, what He did for you, and me, and you have given him your heart, you begin to see yourself differently. Because He lives and reigns in your heart. You know Christ.

If you have not given him your heart, and you have not renewed your mind, well you may still have that “stinking thinking.”

This is a photograph that I took recently at my Fathers grave. The rose, we bought from a vendor, on the street, and I placed it at my Fathers grave. Memorial Day. And as I looked further, it almost seems like their is a tear on the rose. I did cry that day, for all the times, I did not have my father. He and mom, were divorced, when I was a young child. So I do grieve, for the loss.

Anyway, my Father though, did have a part in my life, that I will always honor, and cherish. For you see, I was not to be born. According to doctors, they told my mother, she could not have children. Well to make a long story short, dad prayed for my life, he prayed to God, for me to be born. And here I am….So God does know better. He knows everything about me… And yet as I see myself, in Christ, there are times, when I must come to God, and say….

Father….CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART, OH GOD, AND RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN ME. Psalms 51:10. 

Its like a tune up. You just know, things aren’t running right in your heart, your faith may be down, your attitude may be judgmental, and you know in your heart of hearts, maybe theirs sin….But you need God to make it right, within you. So you can think better, feel better, and see results.

You may not see that old serpent, but you know, he is slithering about, like a snake in the grass….And you don’t want to miss out or lose out in your blessings….So you go to God.

And you ask him to create a clean heart, so your life, will reflect Christ. Praying blessings for you today….

Praying it for myself quietly, today, there is no Prayer of Hope listed, today, it you noticed… Today, my Prayers are private, and quiet.  In the Lord.

Just my thoughts, with love,

Elena Ramirez

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,

Elena Ramirez

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
