DO YOU STEAL YOUR OWN BLESSINGS? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3150.jpgI prayed about this dream that I had.  I won’t give the details but. …. I felt like the Lord, was telling me, we can steal our own blessings.  By the things we do.  So it made me think, even to write this.  

Because if I can help you see, I know I am helping myself as well.  It reinforces us, as the body of Christ….But if there is something we are doing that is stealing our own blessings, we need to recognize it.  I want to.  To obey God.  So it made me think….

By the short cuts we take.  By cutting corners, in even not give God praise, or thanks.  Where we are silent, when we should be shouting to the rafters who we are in Christ. By maybe even taking advantage of a situation…. hmm. 

Today, we went and had a breakfast, after losing something.  And we found it.  But not after prayer.  This thing was lost.  Where it was found, it had been searched in that same place, five times.  Yet it was missed.  But I prayed, and I prayed hard.

When I prayed today, there was a break through.  It was as if, I knew, that I knew God heard me.  And it was as if God was telling me, for the big thing I want, I need to press in like that, for a little thing.  Pray with faith…. not just words. 

Well, we went to eat breakfast out.  We ordered.  Hubby, during our breakfast, wanted a cup of coffee.  We tried to get our waitresses, attention, but she did not see.  So I flagged down the bus boy.  He got the coffee.  When she came back, we told her, but she did not add it to our bill.  So when we went up to the register, we told the cashier, and she was so impressed, she said its good to be honest.  

I told her; “We don’t want to lose our own blessings.  And it dawned on me, we can lose our own blessings, we can “steal” from ourselves!  My dream was prophetic….

And so if we do, if we even give the enemy an inch, and call that a blessing, but if it is, by wrong doing….that is wrong in the sight of the Lord.

Yesterday, someone asked for prayer.  I felt the Holy spirit tell me, give this scripture, and make sure, they know its to be claimed from a KJV for the holiness, and anointing.

A couple of people responded, and one said, whats the difference, they are all the same.  I explained, that they are not.  I explained, that God has given many scriptures, not to change, add, or delete scripture.  

Then one other person, who wanted to argue, told me, that what we are doubting who God is, and His power, by merely a bible version.  He said, we are to trust the Holy spirit.  To lead us.  

I told him, he could use whatever version he wanted.  But, how could the Holy spirit, be in a lie?  How can that be Holy?  How can that be God leading us?…..When these versions, have been corrupted, when they disobeyed God, by changing them?

Well the lady who was a friend on that post, deleted my comment.  And it ticked me off.  Not because I wanted to argue or debate it, but these are the words from God not me.  I had given Deuteronomy 4:2, and Revelation 22:18-19.  She deleted Gods word.  That ticked me off.

And so, I found this scripture below, because I needed a word.  

I believe in truth, but I asked God to help me maintain my peace in this matter.  This person, was now arguing with the Holy spirit not me.  So I was released.  But I did unfriend her, without even arguing about it. 

BUT THEY MOCKED THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, AND DESPISED HIS WORDS, AND MISUSED HIS PROPHETS, UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY.  II CHRONICLES 36:16.  KJV.  

Friends, I just feel like not only can we steal from ourselves.  But if we think God is silent, in a matter, and perhaps we do not see His correction, we can think we are getting away with something.  There will be a time, the wrath of God will be revealed.  Look at that scripture again…..

When in truth, as well, we are “stealing” from ourselves.  

Many of you know how I feel about this, when it comes to only using a King James bible.  And you mock me. You don’t believe me.  It goes in one ear and out the other.  You don’t even respond any more.  

These are His words, that you are despising, if you do not obey God, by only using a KJV.  

But I am not argue about it.  Like I did not argue with that lady. It felt good, to just say, Lord you take care of it.  But I don’t want to be unequally yoked with darkness.  

Look all I can say, and you can judge yourself.  Do you steal your own blessings?  Is there a reason, your answer is not coming through?  If you are believing half truths, and half lies from a corrupt Bible…..

Isn’t that stealing from yourself?

Just a thought,

Elena Ramirez 

 

THE LORD REVEALED TO ME MY COMPUTER “COPY AND PASTE” HACKER THIEF


I find it ironic, that I have had this dream, where the Lord revealed to me, the computer thief, who has been going through my files for years, stealing my writings, and claiming them, as “her” own.

I find it ironic, and interesting, one because today is the anniversary of my mothers death.  10 years to the day.  And who else, would help you but your mother, with God?  And also, that today, is a day, where many are actually boycotting, the governments, bill, to censor, the internet.  So the timing of this, somehow or another, with my dream, brings clarity, it brings wisdom, it brings insight, to truth.

But, my mother knew, even then, before she died, how frustrated, I have been, as a writer.   And as a writer, I have dealt, with my frustrations, of even catching people, who have taken some of my writings, and copied and pasted them, and claimed them, as their own.

You know, the internet, and computers, are a fascinating “tell it like it is” tool.  But so is the word of God.  And the word of God says, that their are those who use “devices” for evil purposes, instead of good.  That they are being used by the devil.  II Corinthians 2:11 Lest satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his “devices.”

So, by all that the Lord, reveals to me, and that I know, even what I do in my writings, there are those, who would love to stop me, they would love to stop the gospel, from going out.   I know, I have been tested, over and over again, to see, if I would be worthy of sharing a word here.  And I do not know, how worthy I am, or what my writings are worth, concerning monetary value, because I have not been paid. I have not been able to be published, by a reputable or well-known publisher.

Yet, by a spiritual level, in my own life, I know the sacrifice, of Christ, was so great, I write,  and I have for over fifteen years, at least.  Without pay.  I write, because I was, once lost, but now found.  I write, because Christ has made a difference in my life.  I write, because I know people, need hope.  They need inspiration, more then anything, they need Gods truth.  So, I write HIS scriptures.  I write for the Lord.  I am a Prayer Writer.  I know the power, of prayer…..

And even as I dreamed this dream, this morning, where I caught the “woman” who has been stealing from me, my writings, for many years, which I knew not.  I realize something.  She is desperate.  I looked in her eyes, and I saw, she knew, I had caught her.   Jeremiah 2:26.  As the thief is ashamed when found.  And then, I woke up.  To be honest, with you, my first reaction, was anger.  I wanted to punch her out.  To reveal who she is.

For even though, I do not know who she is personally, or where she is, I know that God knows.  So automatically, I received peace.  Because vengeance is His.  So, I do not need to punch her out.  But, the thing is, as I think about her.  I think about all the curses, she has brought into her own life, by stealing from me.  And I do feel sorry for her.  But I do not condone, her actions, nor do I defend her.  For she has been exposed to me, by God.

For she even by stealing from me, and my writings, has had to know truth.  She has had to see her self, the truth, I have written, and from time to time.  For we reap, what we sow.  She has sown, destruction to herself, she has sown, evil by claiming, things that do not belong to her, my writings.  It just all made sense.  All the viruses, my computers have had, all the strange happenings.  Even when I publish, things, I have seen, strange discrepancies, and problems, with hackers, etc.  It just all makes sense.  She has targeted me.  She has known how to do things, with computers.  She understands viruses, she understands technology.  She has had this knowledge, and used it for evil purposes.  When I think about it, now that I know this truth.  From my dream.  Its mind boggling, to know someone, knows this kind of stuff, and is being used by the devil.

Look, I may not be knowledgeable, about “how” one uses, knowledge, in an evil way.  But when someone, takes knowledge, insight, the know-how, and uses it to hurt others, or to obtain information, to use for their own benefit, without giving credit, where credit is due, well, in Gods eyes, that is stealing.  That is being a false witness, that is really someone who is being used by the devil.  For he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  I hate liars, and thieves, and those things, that God hates.

I hate them.  Or rather, I need to say, I hate the sin, and not them.  I HATE THE DEVIL!  Because I see, when any one of us, sins, against God, we sin against ourselves.  We hurt ourselves.  I hate that.  So I write.  I write truth, and love, and I write, and plead with people, to turn from the false way, for they are only hurting themselves.

After I dreamed this, I prayed to God, and I just asked my Lord, and savior, that He deals with them.  Not me.  Thats not my job.  And that I would be restored, for all that I have lost, for so many years.  That favor, would finally be mine.  For you see, I have caught my thief.  I know who she is now.  And when I pray, I will pray for her soul, but I will not stop praying, until, I know she has found justice.  And justice, has found her. In whatever way, my Lord may choose.

If that means, she pays me back, and restores, that which she has stolen, thats fine.  If she does not, well, the Lord says, he will rebuke the devourer.  He will bless those who bless me, and He will curse, those who curse me.  Genesis 12:3.  And for the one who does things in secret, to hurt me, they are cursing them selves, according to Gods word.  Cursed be he that smitheth his neighbor secretly.  And all the people shall say, Amen.  Deuteronomy 27:24.

She has been devouring my gifts, my fruit, and my labor, and she will not be blessed, until she repents.

Maybe you are her, partner, in crime.  He or she.  Maybe you are seeing this, and reading this, and you can identify with her, or even with me.  Maybe you have been using the internet, to hurt others.  To take others copyrights.  To deceive, to plant viruses, tracking devices, whatever.

I plead with you, whoever you are.  If you are using the internet, to hurt others, to hurt and steal, and to falsify things, please stop.  For the sake of your soul.  Please stop, and restore, and go to God, and ask forgiveness.

You are hurting yourself, you are hurting, your loved ones, more then you know.  And perhaps my dream was a warning to you.  For you have been caught, and even caught by yourself.  By reading this.  It is not coincidence, God brought you here to read this.  Perhaps, your judgement, will not be so harsh, if you stop now, go to God, and repent.  If not, you have no idea, what you have done, and you will pay for it.  Restore, repent, and give no place to the devil.  Hell is real.

Now, that the Lord revealed this to me, she cannot get away.  She cannot continue, because believe me, I know how to pray.  And I just thank God, He showed me, and revealed who my computer thief is.  And even for those that would do the devils work.  He or she.

Let’s just say this, she messed with the wrong person.  For I am Gods child.  His ambassador, his Prayer writer.  And he is my protector.  And by the way, I say, this for my own soul.  I forgive her.  But its in Gods hands……

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I give you praise, glory and honor, and thank you for revealing this to me.  I know according to your word, that when the thief is caught, he or she must restore.  Even here, I know, who it is.  Not by name, not by destination, but you know.  Lord, my prayer in this matter is private, and you know, how much I have gone through, how patient I have been, how sorrowful, I have travailed in these matters where I write for you.  But I am so grateful even here, that I have peace.  For it is in your hands.  You are the way of justice.  And I just pray to continue to write, but I do pray, even here for your protection.  I plead the blood of Jesus, as my protection.  To cover me.  I pray, for restoration.  I bind the devil, his evil devices, that have been used in computers.  And I pray, truth would prevail, love, and yes, the American way in freedom.  But not freedom to do evil.  Lord, how ironic, your timing is, in this, how mysterious are your ways, that I totally submit to.  Lord, thank you for taking care of this matter for me, in Jesus name.  Amen 

THEY SHALL RUN TO AND FRO IN THE CITY; THEY SHALL RUN UPON THE WALL, THEY SHALL CLIMB UP UPON THE HOUSES; THEY SHALL ENTER IN AT THE “WINDOWS” LIKE A THIEF.  JOEL 2:9

A PLEA TO THE JUDAS OF HEART~”WHAT IF JUDAS HAD GONE TO THE CROSS OF CHRIST?”


What if Judas had repented, and saw what he did, and repented at the cross of our Lord, Jesus?  How would his life have changed?  For he would not have committed suicide….

I write this, as a plea, to the “Judas of Heart.”  To that person, who feigns innocence, who promises, this and that, but who is disloyal in heart.  To the one, who looks for opportunities, to betray someone.

Who hates, yet, when near you.  They give kisses, like Judas did.  Who might, even say, I am a Christian.  But has ulterior motives, and plans, to deceive, to hurt.  You Judas heart, are a liar.  Even here, I plead, the blood of Jesus, to the “Judas of Heart.”

I write this to plead with you, to stop hurting, yourself, and others.  To stop, betraying, those, who trust you.  To stop, selling others, for profit, or for “thirty stinking” dollars, that will damn you for eternity.  I don’t pull any stops here, in expressing this, I call you for what you are.  Because you need to see, this.  But I pray to do so in truth, and yes love.

If Jesus, could have talked to Judas, after betraying Him, He would have said.  “Judas, I forgive you.”  He would have counseled this disciple, He had called a friend.  But as we all know, Christ did not have that chance.  And He was crucified, for our sins.  For the sins, of Judas, if he had repented.  And not committed suicide.  Judas took his own life, he knew, tortured, what he had done.  He took a permanent way out of life, as the solution.  But it led to hell.  For, he had betrayed, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords.

His betrayal, hurt his friend.  Christ. Yet this was the plan of God.

But, Judas, had seen, the miracles, Christ had done.  He had seen love, in action.  The face of love, as it was in Christ.  The beauty of who He was.  Judas saw all that, and yet, in jealousy, hate, or whatever it was, that was evil within him, he betrayed Christ. And, sold him out for thirty stinking coins of gold.  How could he do such a heinous thing?  One might ask themself.

Today, I want to plead with you.  And if you are reading this, it may be you.  You see, who you are.  For you know yourself, better then anyone.  You know, how charming you can be.  You know, you have a personality, and demeanor, that is very attractive, or maybe not.  Maybe you are so intimidated, by people, or success of others, and you see, your inadequacies.  That either way, you cannot bear, to see others do well, or you feel like you have to have the upper hand.  It kills you, within, to see others excel, and they take the glory from you.  Sound familar?

Thats satan within you.  He hated, God.  He hated to see God, shine, with all the glory.  So much, because he was an angel, that was the glory, he wanted it all for himself.  So he betrayed God.  He so very much, wanted to cancel the plans of God, that he disguised himself, as a snake, then.  A serpent, and caused Adam and Eve, to sin, against God.  By making them believe a lie.  If only, they had gone to God, sought counsel from Him, then the sins, of this world, the curse, mankind received from this disobedience, would have been avoided.

Maybe that is why I write to you.  To avoid, the curse.  To avoid, the wrath of God.  To avoid, a future, that has truly no hope.  When Judas did what he did, by betraying Jesus, he wanted to return the dirty coins, he had received.  But it was too late.  They took Christ, beat him, spat at him, and made him suffer.  What a heavy guilt, Judas must have had.

Judas, could have avoided, his downfall.  Even his lack of hope, by that he committed suicide.  He could have saved His life, then, and for eternity.  He could have stopped, and seen what evil he was doing.  But he did not.  What if he had, seen. And stopped, and did not betray Christ?  It would probably be a different story.  Or would it?

Yes, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  But if only…..If only he had repented.  If only he had ran to the cross, even as our Lord, was nailed to that tree, that place, that tormented our Lord, for our sins…If only, he had cried out to God for forgiveness.  We would have seen by histories account, a man changed.  But he knew not who he betrayed.  Christ, the son of God.

Judas, would have received redemption.  He would have been forgiven.  Christ loved him.  And even as I write this, and I cry, I feel the sadness, and I understand, the pain, Christ felt, in that betrayal.

Yet, He knew, Christ knew, he had to go to the cross for ALL of our sins.  So He did.  He willingly went to the cross, to take the curse, to suffer, die, and to go to the pits of hell, to get the keys, so the devil would not have a legal right to take us there.  By Christs obedience, to God, in love.  We are free.

For everyone, who does not come to Christ, who denies him, knowing He is the way, the truth, and the life.  Christ grieves for you.  He cries for you, because you choose to be disloyal.  Because you choose to have a Judas, heart.

You choose the ways of satan.  And he knows, the time of reckoning, is at hand.  Either when your time of life is over, or when He returns.  He knows.  All will stand before Him, and they will have to give an account of their life.  And they will either reap, hell or heaven.

Judas of heart, I plead with you.  Stop, see what you are doing.  Restore, return, that which you have stolen from.  Or been a false witness.  Go to the ones you have hurt.  Repent.  Repent before a holy God, and make right, what you have done wrong.  Its not too late.  You may think it is.  But it is not.

You may have to pay the consequences, of your sin.  You may lose, what you loved.  Or you may not.  But if you make it right, with your soul, as the goal, you can be victorious.

Judas, of heart, I plead with you.  For even as I write this, I understand, how it feels when you trust someone, and they give you the kisses, of Judas, and they betray you.  I have felt that pain many times.  Too many, that I don’t even want to recount.  Yet, I have forgiven.  For Christ forgave me of my sins.  So I choose to forgive.  As the word says.  Matthew 6:14 For if ye forgive men their tresspasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  

And even now, God revealed to me, last night in a dream.  Someone, I have been kind to, someone who has feigned, “friendship” this someone, has betrayed me, by my works.  By that which I write.  I had a dream, that I fought that person.  And then I woke up, and prayed, “Lord, the battle is yours.”  I felt so weary, after this dream.  I prayed for that soul.  I pray, they would see, the error of this. Stealing others works, other writers hard earned, works, they put to computers.  In this computer age, their are so many opportunities, for others to steal.  But God knows.

Maybe thats why I write this to, to plead with you Judas of heart.  To plead, you to stop.  The wrath of God, is not to be messed with, or to be thought of lightly, for God is not mocked.  He loves His children.  He blesses those, who bless us.  But he curses, those who curse us.  Judas, of heart, you need to see this.  Before it is too late.  Go to God, make good, from your betraying…..Repent, restore.

And change your mind, your heart, to a heart like Christ, before it is too late.  Go to the cross.  Christ is the only one, who can change your heart.  He is the only one.  Don’t make the mistake, before it is too late, like Judas did.  Go to the cross, and cry out to the only one, who can save your soul.

And even here, Judas of heart, who claimed to be my friend.  I forgive you.  My heart breaks because I trusted you.  But I forgive you.  May God have mercy on your soul.

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

Please Note:  I do not know the future.  I have dreams, that have not been fulfilled, yet.  Perhaps they will be.  But, if someone, can see this and see the vision, of this, and has the resources, I pray, you would make a movie  out of this.  What if Judas had gone to the cross?  The story would be different.  It could be someone’s lifeline……To Christ now.

This person, I describe, as the Judas in this post,  is an acquaintance.  Someone I do not know, by spending time, with them etc.  Yet, we have communicated.  I have no proof, nor do I choose to pursue, a battle in this.  I am just sad, I had this dream.  I would pray, it would not be true.  But if it is, I just put it in Gods hands.   I have recently discovered, on one of my blogs, someone posted an ad, without my authorization.  Someone who used the blog, as an outlet, for them to make money.  This is being investigated. I don’t know if it is this person, or not.  But again, I trust God, and will rest in that. I just find it ironic, I had this dream.  At the timing of this.  Thank you, and  Blessings…..Elena

Father, I thank you and praise you, almighty, sovereign, good, and kind Lord.  I thank you that you change a heart.  That you changed mine.  I was a Judas Heart, before I met you.  Before you, showed me truly, what you did on the cross.  For me, and for all of us who believe.  We all are, before you.  No one wants to admit that.  No one wants to remember, our sins.  Or that, we offend a Holy God, by our sins.  But, how merciful you are, and compassionate.  Lord, the more, and more, I realize, how precious my salvation is, I never want to sin against you.  Lord, I know you have been guiding me, teaching me, showing me, love, and forgiveness, and a trust, to grow in your ways.  It amazes me.  But I do pray for the “Judas of Heart” even here, and pray, you help this person reading this, who sees, truth, in what I am writing.  That the devil, will not steal the plan you have for this person.  Even here, again, in this prayer, I plead the blood of Jesus, over this person, and I pray, you bring your love to them. That they would go to the cross.  Judas was not able to.  But this person can.  Let them see your love.  May the tears, wash the sins, and the hate, and the betrayal, and make this person, a son, or a daughter, of God.  Thank you Lord.  In Jesus name. Amen

TIS THE SEASON TO GIVE AND NOT TAKE…(STEAL)



HE COVETS (TAKES) GREEDILY ALL DAY LONG:  BUT THE RIGHTEOUS GIVES AND SPARES NOT.  PROVERBS 21:26.

As I write this, I want to write in a spirit of love.  God is so good to me,  in my walk with the Lord, and I so want to be obedient to him, in everything, I want be an expression of His love.  So I can know truth.  His truth….which truly is Love.

Yet, as I find myself writing this message.  In a way, it seems harsh, and I don’t like being harsh.  But sometimes, you have to speak bluntly, truthfully.  BUT SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, MAY GROW UP INTO HIM IN ALL THINGS WHICH IS THE HEAD EVEN CHRIST.  Ephesians 4:15. And obedient to God, I will be.  For a moment, even as I sharpen this message, proofing it, its not what I feel, whether someone would get offended.  Or not, God is speaking in this message.

Perhaps, it is called “Tough Love.”  Love never fails, and when walking in love, it makes you stronger.  Some may perceive it as weakness.  But in Gods eyes it pleases him.  I so feel, prompted by God to share this, at this time of the year.  A time, where it is tough on many people.  But more so, if you are not doing things Gods way….

So, I share some things from my heart.  And, since this is the season, to be giving.  I feel like we have to be on guard, that we do not take advantage of that spirit.  Especially, so that we do not take, or put ourselves, in a position, where the enemy can take our blessings, because we are not thinking of others, or we may be only thinking of ourselves.  And just taking.  Being greedy, in any form, is not good.  And that what is seen, is the appearance of evil.  The Bible tells us abstain from the appearance of evil.  I Thessalonians 5:22.

So, I will use a testimony, of feigned friendship, from someone I trusted, and some of the things, I have experienced, and seen.  To bring this message.  And praying again, that Love will come from this, with truth.  For food for thought….

Have you ever had a friend, that you trusted, and they stole from you?  Years ago, I used to work with a woman.  And, I thought we were friends.  One day, she asked me where I lived, and I told her.  A few weeks later, my house was burglarized.  It really hurt me.  I was struggling, anyway, and for this to happen, hurt me financially, and there is something about being violated by that, that just makes one sad.  I was depressed, but I prayed.

I asked God, to show me who did that.  It was two days after the burglary, and I had a very strange, and uncanny, feeling to clean house.  My house was clean, but I guess, I wanted to stay busy, and not think about what had happened.  Trying to purify my space, I don’t know…But God knew!

So, I picked up a rug, and went outside to shake it.  As I went outside, I looked through the corner of my eye, peripherally, and I saw this woman, and her husband, in their car.  Parked on the street corner.  It was the woman, I worked with.

God answered my prayer.  I knew He had.  It encouraged me.  It strengthened me.  Even in that moment, that I saw them, I knew and sensed how good God is.  And him giving me, that answer, revealed to me.  He hates to see someone violated.  He hates stealing…..in any form.  So he will bring things from the darkness to light….

As she saw, that I saw them, she ducked down, and they sped off.  And then I remembered, I had given her my address.  I don’t know why they would have been there, maybe waiting to finish their burglary.  But I knew, it was her, who had broke in.  I was never able to recover my loss, and I did go to the police department, to identify, that I knew it was them.  But they said, I had to prove, it, by making an I.D. on my belongings.  Well, I could not do that, because they were gone.  But, I did learn from that, by taking photographs of things now, for proof of ownership.

Anyway, after I went back to work, I actually confronted her, but she would just deny it.  I had to let it go.  Because my job security was at stake.  What was I going to do?  But every time she saw me, her eyes told me she knew, and she actually mocked me, in her demeanor.  With her head held up high, and almost laughing.  Oh she angered me.  Ever since, then, I do not have much respect for people who beg, steal or borrow.  In fact, I hate it so much.  I won’t keep company with a thief.  Especially, if I know they steal.  I had to go through the process, of forgiving, and releasing it to God.  And he blesses me.  He restores…..

I once went to a church, and the pastor, said that, same thing, about begging, stealing, and borrowing.  and I quit going to that church.  Why?  Because it is bad enough, that the world, reacts to things like that, and condones it, but at a church, that should never be associated with Christianity.  He may have in his communication, thought it was innocent, enough to just say that flippantly.  But do we not know, that God judges us by the words we speak?  Out of the abundance of the heart does speaks.  Matthew 12:34.

God sees, in some situations, people have no respect for other peoples belongings, their time, their resources, or even the things they leave out.  Trusting, others. And some, may call themselves, Christians.  Or friends.  But, by taking, anything, that does not belong to you, that is called stealing.  Our society, does not put much emphasis on this, but God does.

And, I am sorry, I have no tolerance, for thieves.  I do forgive, but I never trust someone, when they take something from me, that does not belong to them.  And here on the internet, I have seen it a few times.  Too many times, for comfort.  Not only with myself, but in a circle of other authors, they have experienced that as well.  As we try to console one another, we ask why?  Well, there is nothing like the power of the pen, and I use it, to help others, but I don’t use it for someone to take from it, and claim it as their own.  There are laws, that are meant to protect peoples rights in this,it is called “copyrights.”  And it is plagiarism when people do this.

What I don’t understand, is why people hurt others, when it comes back and slaps them in the face, and they reap what they sow.  Everything we do, comes back to us.  Its a principle, from God.

A while back, I had experienced this in a big way, and again, I prayed.  A woman, had taken my Prayers of Hope, and started copying and pasting, them.  But she wrote that she was the author.  A dear friend of mine, saw it, and contacted me, and informed me.  And told me she had seen my work.

Again I prayed.  And God told me, he understood the pain, it was like the devil trying to say, he wrote the Bible.  And God told me, there was no way, he would put up with that.

And I pray for them.  Because if someone can do something that steals from someone in a little thing, they are apt to do something in a big way.  I once, knew of a friend, that tried to steal another womans husband.  All in friendship….With friends like that, you don’t need enemies.

Friends respect each other.  If you are in a situation, and you want something your friend has.  Respect that person, enough to ask.  (Don’t ask for the husband though…lol)  And yes, I joke here a little, but stealing really is not funny.

So don’t play games.  And don’t try to be sly.  You know, and God knows, even though, you think others don’t know……you tell on yourself.  THOU THEREFORE WHICH TEACHEST ANOTHER, TEACHEST THOU NOT THYSELF?  THOU THAT PREACHEST A MAN SHOULD NOT STEAL, DO YOU STEAL?  ROMANS 2:21

I tell you this, in truth, and in love.  You will never grow to be the person, you can be in Christ, by stealing.  Small or big…..Cutting the corners, to deceive.   God cannot bless that.  Please, take this for what it is worth.   I write this, as a testimony, to share, because I pray, people would see, how the devil can take something little and make it big….I write this, because I pray, people, would grow to be the potential, God intended for them to be.  Don’t let the devil steal your blessings, because you would steal.  It is not my intention, to make this about making anybody feel bad.  Its about seeing truth, and making a real change, so the truth, can set one free…I  write this again, obedient to God.

And as I conclude this, again, this is not meant to hurt, or judge, or condemn anyone.  But if you see any of these characteristics, of being a taker, or a thief, even in a subtle way.  Go to God, ask him to change this, and start practicing giving instead…..  Begin, thanking God, praising him, paying your tithes.  Yes, I told you to pay your tithes, so God can bless that.  (See Malachi chapter 3)    Give my friends, give God glory, and give love…..Love never fails.

I also want to Thank God, for my friends, my true friends.  I know who you are…and you know who you are.  You are precious to me.  I would never trade you for anything…..Much love I do, get because of your friendship…..

And heres a clue….to remind you.  God has angels that write down in the Book of Life, that what we do……

Just my thoughts,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, Thank you for your guidance, and thank you for true friends.  Father, this blog is not to condemn anyone.  But, if it makes any of us look at ourselves, and see our motives, see how we carry ourselves.  Even when no one is seeing, we know you are.  It is a matter of character, to want to change, to do right, to do good, to not take advantage of anyone.  For we are all your children.  And we never want to pick up characteristics, of the enemy.  Help us to grow to be more Christ like, more concerned, not to give place to the enemy.  Lord you do try us, and I pray, this blog, which, I am writing by obedience to you, will bring understanding.  And obedience to you, for you bless those who bless us, and you curse those, who curse us.  We want blessings in our lives.  By doing things your way.  In Jesus name.  Amen

IS GREED YOUR MOTIVATOR?


HAVING THE UNDERSTANDING DARKENED, BEING ALIENATED FROM THE LIFE OF GOD THROUGH THE IGNORANCE THAT IS IN THEM, BECAUSE OF THE BLINDNESS OF THEIR HEART.  WHO BEING PAST FEELING HAVE GIVEN THEMSELVES OVER UNTO LASCIVIOUSNESS TO WORK ALL UNCLEANNESS WITH GREEDINESS.  EPHESIANS 4:18-19.

Greed is ugly, because as we can see in this scripture above, it makes people blind in their heart.  And people really cannot see what they are doing, because they want more, and more, and more.  To a point where an “unclean” spirit comes upon them, and thinking becomes very extravagant, and people lose themselves to a point where they are no longer being ethical, in their dealings etc.  It drives things to a point, where things get out of control.

Greed is something, that is really not brought up in Christian circles.  Or at least, I do not hear anything coming from the pulpit.  For we are taught to give.  The Bible tells us God loves a cheerful giver.   I hope by what I am writing, that we would look at the way we practice business, the way we do give, and at what extent will we go to, to get that dollar.

For it seems lately, integrity, honorable practices are pushed aside, and it seems like so many pursue getting your money, but at what cost?  At the point of greed?

What if I told you, you would be in jeopardy of losing your soul, because greed, has turned into an idol for you.  And, that is an abomination to God.  MORTIFY THEREFORE YOUR MEMBERS WHICH ARE UPON THE EARTH: FORNICATION UNCLEANNESS, INORDINATE AFFECTION, EVIL CONCUPISCENCE AND COVETOUSNESS, (GREED) WHICH IS IDOLATRY.  COLOSSIANS 3:5

In the following scriptures, we see how much it offends God.  EZEKIEL 22:12 IN THEE HAVE THEY TAKEN GIFTS TO SHED BLOOD, THOU HAS TAKEN USURY AND INCREASE, AND THOU HAST GREEDILY GAINED OF THY NEIGHBORS BY EXTORTION, AND HAST FORGOTTEN ME, SAITH THE LORD GOD. Have you forgotten God dear one?  Have you forgotten to take him at his word, and to trust him?  Or do you manipulate situations, to your advantage, so you can come out, with more?  That is greed.  We have to be very, very careful in things like this.  Because if we do not, we will see truly the love of money is the root of evil.

I TIMOTHY 6:10-11 FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL, WHICH WHILE SOME COVETED AFTER THEY HAVE ERRED FROM THE FAITH, AND PIERCED THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS.  BUT THOU MAN OF GOD, FLEE THESE THINGS: AND FOLLOW AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS, GODLINESS, FAITH LOVE PATIENCE, MEEKNESS.

Have your turned from faith?  Are you sorrowful, because you do not have, as well?  We are called to be content, with what we have.  And in all things, there is a balance.  Read Phillipians Chapter 4.  Here we are reminded to be content, and yet to know.  God will supply all of our needs, according to his riches, in glory through Christ Jesus.

Having money, is not evil.  Gods blessings can be poured on someone, and they can have very much so, and abundantly.  But how it is gained, how it is prioritized, can be greed.  How it is used, is greed.  If you have, and you do not bless others, that is greed.

We see greed in our society, at the grocery store, in housing etc.  Its all over the place.  When I was growing up, and this may age me, but I could buy a soda pop for ten cents.  A candy bar for a nickel, and a loaf of bread for about fifty cents.  I even have photographs in front of a gas station, and gas was thirty two cents a gallon.  Those days are gone, long gone.  So, I may be getting older, but I see, we are not getting better in this, for there is a spirit of greed.

The other day, my husband and I, with our son, went to a prominent restaurant, and I ordered a hot turkey meal.  The turkey was cold, and was not worth the $50.00 we payed for a dinner out.  Quality is lousy, and I am not trying to complain, but what it does come down to, is that, there are so many out there, asking a high price for this and that, but people are not getting their moneys worth.

I see a lot of this.  Whats happened to America?  All I know, is that when we get to a point, where things are not working, like our economy, we have to ask ourselves, what is our motivator?  The Bible tells us, seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, all things will be added to you.  Luke 12:31.

We are not doing that.  Forcing giving to the poor, and taking from the rich, is socialism.  I don’t like that either.  I want to earn a living, and be fair, honest, and present things honest in the sight of God and man.  ROMANS 12:17. I don’t want to rip people off.  I don’t want my government doing that to me either.  I want to give because this is what God wants me to do.  But I don’t want my government enforcing that.

I want to love, because I live, move and have my being because of my Lord.  In just my thoughts, in my life, and in every aspect of business.  I don’t want greed to ever be evident.

I just think even here, that we need to know, we reap what we sow.  These are principles from God.  In other words, what goes around comes around.  I know I don’t want those kind of things coming back to me.

I just think by writing this, we need to look at it, from the pulpit too.  Our churches, need to bring the principles of what the word of God says concerning this.  Greed is a problem that we really need to look at, and see, and study within ourselves, to ask.  Am I motivated by greed?  Am I doing what God would want me to do?

We are called to love one another, if you love God, you will love your fellow person.  So that means, you will think about the way you relate to someone.  Is it by greed and what you can take from someone?

I tell you in all honesty, if that is you, I hope, you would consider, and reevaluate, whether or not you or motivated by greed?  Or are you motivated by God, and his spirit…..

And if you do see greed, within, all you have to do, is go to our Lords throne.  Repent, and ask him what to do.  He may even have you restore.  He will take away that sin, and the spirit of it, from you, as you seek his kingdom and his righteousness.

Just my thoughts, with love, in Christ.  Elena Ramirez

A PRAYER OF HOPE….

Father, I ask for your guidance in this for all of us.  Lord, we are in some strange economical times, as it is.  I just have the feeling, and know, that if we did things differently, as a nation, and individually, we would not be in this predicament.  I just know, if we tried to do things your way we would see the change.  Lord, you tell us the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Lord, I don’t think anyone of us, really would want that in us, unless, we would choose to disregard what Christ did.  For Christ came to give life, and life abundantly.  For each one of us.  On earth, and as it is in heaven.  Father, I know you had me write this for a reason.  May it convict, but not condemn.  For you are so merciful, if we just go to your throne, and ask for forgiveness.  You do.  Thank you Lord, for all of my blessings.  Thank you, remind me to be a giver as well.  In Jesus name, Amen

WHY WOULD YOU LIE, STEAL AND CHEAT?


GET IN LINE OR FALL INTO THE GUTTER

I have had this message on my heart, for a few days.  Not even sure why.  Or who it is meant for.  I have no reason really why I should be sharing this….But prompted by the Holy Spirit, I write this.  I must be obedient.  I suppose, God wants someone to see this.  Someone to know, maybe even before it is too late.  To warn someone.

So why would you lie, steal and cheat?  For knowing, that this kind of thinking, of stealing, lying and cheating, is wrong.   So Mothers day,  just passed, and maybe your mother never taught you this.  Maybe, you don’t have a good mom as an example.  Well, I am going to tell you from a Mothers perspective. “Knock it off Kid, get that kind of stinking, thinking out of your head, and heart, and don’t you dare get into trouble!!” A good mom and dad, would get you in line.  We don’t always have our moms and dads to tell us what to do.  The truth of the matter is, we have our own ways of doing things, when we think people do not see us, or if in truth, we do not always have parents who taught us right and wrong.  We can even be tempted, to do things, that are illegal, immoral, and selfish, causing us to lie, steal and cheat.  But God does see us.  And when we know his truth, our conscience, will bother us, if we are in the wrong.  If not then, you have become cold in your hearing, and really need to get your thoughts to doing that which is right.  Before it is too late.

And when we don’t know what is right or wrong, we have to learn.  Sometimes the hard way, and I can attest to that on a few occasions.  Sometimes, I wish I could go back, and do things differently.  But thats who I am.  I am not perfect, and I made so many mistakes, that I do think I hurt who I could be, and where I could be even now.  But the beauty of it, is God has forgiven me, and put me on the right path.  And on the right way, and thats knowing what God’s word says.  Lying though, stealing and cheating, even in my darkest days, was never something I tried to get good at.  I don’t like the feeling, of not having peace.  Or not able to sleep at night.  Or trying to remember, a lie, to sound authentic.  Being obedient to God, gives a person peace, and rest.  In their spirit.  I guess, my mom, pounded that in me, at an early age.  I never, quite felt comfortable, or at peace trying to do something that was not truthful.

I just want to share a few scriptures from the word of God, on this subject.  Maybe you might not even hear me, but I hope you hear God in this…

Liars – You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is not truth in him.  When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own.  For he is a liar, and the father of it.  John 8:44

Stealing – Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.  Ephesians 4:28

Cheaters – (Deceivers)  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.  II John 1:7

The characteristics of this, if you notice, affirm, the personality of the devil.  We really have to look at ourselves, and we have to see, who are we really choosing to serve?  When someone really realizes, what Christ did, a transformation takes place, and our hearts, are softened, changed, and we see really, who we are, and what Christ did for us.  As we repent of our sins, Christ changes us.  When we do not see that, we stay in our sins, and really cannot see who we are imitating.  It is either going to be God, or the devil.

Look again, I don’t know who my audience is in this.  But I do sense, if you are a Christian, there is a stronger warning here.  By continuing in this, you may be in “eternal jeopardy.”  And that is the word, God is giving me, to relate to you.

And I really don’t think you want curses in your life.  Everything going bad here and there, things  broken, all the time.  Do you think that is coincidental?, Think again.  You don’t want to have that which you have…..Stolen, or cheated on, or lied about.  And the truth of the matter, is you will reap what you sow.  In other words, what goes around, comes around. You are hurting yourself, so, very much so.  Bringing curses, not blessings.  Now, and in the after life.  Because thieves, liars, cheats, do not inherit the Kingdom of God.  And, even here, on earth.  Our prisons are filled with liars, thieves and cheats.  Do you want to be one of them?  Even if you do not get caught.  You are a prisoner of these characteristics.  For the truth of the matter, is you know.  And God knows, and you will never have true peace or things going your way, doing these things.  Not until you repent, and go to Jesus.  And stop doing this…..Perhaps, even restoring and going to those you have done wrong to in this way.  Giving back, being honest, reinstating…..This might help.  But more then anything, changing your mind, by doing it the right way.  Gods way.

So, I do pray, that by reading this, you would not just brush it off, or just ignore this warning.  You may even think it is a small thing, but don’t even give the enemy of God an inch, because this will turn into a huge thing.  God is speaking to someone, to turn from the wickedness, you have been entertaining.  You are in a dangerous, place, and I don’t know what exactly.  But if you don’t really stop, and change your ways.  From stealing, lying, and deceiving, or cheating….

If you don’t know what stealing is, look it up in the Bible.  For thats like the devil trying to say he wrote the Bible.  God hates that.  And he will not put up with it.  You know what stealing is, and in what form.  You choose, to make this choice to lie, steal and cheat.  It could even be plagarism, I know, its happened to me before, someone stealing my writing works.  So, don’t deceive yourself, and think no one knows….

Either way…You will get in some very, very serious trouble.  That you will regret, for the rest of your life.  Don’t play with it.  Don’t listen to the lies of the devil.  His goal, is to keep you from meeting your potential.  From meeting the plan God has for your life.  Give it to God, and spare yourself….Remember this scripture.  For it is true, and you don’t want this to happen to you.  SUCH IS THE END OF ALL WHO GO AFTER ILL-GOTTEN GAIN, IT TAKES AWAY THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO GET IT.  PROVERBS 1:19

God is speaking to you….if you just listen.  You don’t have to do that, to have success.  Or to get ahead.  God has a plan….Trust God, now and repent.  You will be glad you read this.  Christ paid too great of a price, with his life, to play with sin.

Jeremiah 29:11 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….

Take him at his word….

Just my thoughts, and praying blessings.

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I pray for the person, or persons, that you have brought to this page, to read.  The person that is entertaining, doing something wicked, and evil in your sight.  Lord, I pray this would convict them to turn from their plan of this.  And just to know that there would be serious consequences.  Something perhaps irreversible.  Lord, you are a God of second chances.  I pray, that this person or persons would see this, and change, from the plan of the enemy, and seek you.  You will make a way.  For nothing is impossible with you.  I just sense Father, you are trying to spare someone the heartache, the reaping from sowing into wickedness.  You love this person so much, you are using me.  How wonderful you are Lord.  In Jesus name, Lord obedient, I write this, and obedient, I pray for the person, who is in danger of this.  To turn from lying, stealing and cheating.  Amen
