WHAT IS A LOST SOUL? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3403.jpg

What is a lost soul?   Hmm…. You know, as a seasoned Christian, I think I can identify it, by my own life.  I can say, I have been lost.  

I have been found.  By Christ. But, I have and had my part in this matter as well.  

I WILL SEEK THAT WHICH WAS LOST, AND BRING AGAIN THAT WHICH WAS DRIVEN AWAY, AND WILL BIND UP THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN, AND WILL STRENGTHEN THAT WHICH WAS SICK; BUT I WILL DESTROY THE FAT AND THE STRONG:  I WILL FEED THEM WITH JUDGMENT.  EZEKIEL 34:16.  KJV.  

A lost soul, is someone who has lost their way, because they are not seeking Christ.  Urgently, and in a relationship.  Not religion.  Please do not confuse religion, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  

I am talking about a moment to moment relationship, and a prayer life, that is constant with Christ.  Seeking truth, from your King James bibles.  I am talking about someone who has seen the error of their ways, and made Christ their Lord and savior.  They believe.  But not only do they believe, they actively pursue Christ.  

And even if you are a Christian, you can get lost, we all can get lost from time to time.  

And the thing is, that there is an enemy, who only wants to deceive, and lead you away from Christ.  The enemy does not want you to seek the light.  

The enemy does not want you to seek truth, seek the way, the truth, and the life in Christ.  (John 14:6 KJV) The enemy, wants a soul to be lost.  This is where the enemy wants to lure you into his kingdom of darkness, and that is to be eternally lost.  

I feel the urgency lately, to first to speak to my brothers and sisters in Christ, to implore you to guard your salvation.  Cherish it.  Remember what Christ did on the cross for you. Be humble, be love, forget about the pride, throw away those things that corrupt the inner person.  Do not lose your way.  DO NOT GET LOST! Be repentant daily….

Remember the way, is narrow…

ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIGHT GATE FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT:  BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT.  MATTHEW 7:13-14.  KJV. 

Do you see that last sentence from my King James Bible?  It says that there are few that find it.  Few….  Are you one of those few, who may not find it, because you are lost?

Friend, only you can determine where you are with Christ.  Only you know where you have been?  Spiritually, in the light or darkness?  We can lose our moral compass, and get lost.

But I implore you, if you have first not made Christ your Lord, and savior, you are in darkness.  This is not a joke.  This is something, I hope you read, and take to heart.  

Because the bottom line is, there is a line, we can cross into light or darkness.  And you do not want to play with your salvation.  You do not want to lose it, and you do not want to lose a chance to gain, eternal security with Christ.   Why do I say this, because again, I have had spiritual battles, where the enemy wants to deceive me.  

A little history, here, as a testimony.  I accepted Christ as Lord and savior, when I was young.  But, I got “Lost” I played with my salvation.  When I got older, I sinned, I wanted the ways of the world.  I hit the bottom of the barrel so to speak, and not every body may do that, but I thank God I did, because it did teach me to value my salvation.  

It taught me to seek Christ, whole heartily, and with every ounce of my being.  Because I was a “backslider”  I truly believe, if I had died, during that time, before, hell would have been my destination.  I would have lost my salvation.  

So do not argue with a soul, who has been there, done that.  I know.  Salvation can be lost.  But I seek to always obey God.  By His commandments.  Do you?  

I HAVE GONE ASTRAY LIKE A LOST SHEEP; SEEK THY SERVANT: FOR I DO NOT FORGET THY COMANDMENTS.  PSALM 119:176.  KJV.  

Some people do not hit hard, like I did.  Not all people are the same, not all experiences are the same.  But the deception is, you may think life is fine and dandy, but you are lost.  You may have everything going for you, but you are “lost.”  Friend, I implore you, whether you accepted Christ as Lord and savior, or not, do not lose your way.  Do not play with your salvation.  

Now the deception is this, that comes from the enemy.  He wants you to think once saved is always saved.  But its not.  Because sin, separates us from God.  This is King James scriptural.  Look up that scripture.  In a King James Bible.  Without repentance, that sin, will separate you from heaven, when you leave this earth.  

The enemy also wants to deceive you by the Bible you use, so use a King James, it is holy and anointed.  Friend, the deception is in the changing of the words, and they are not Gods words, they are words that come from hell itself.  I have made the comparisons I know.  

I implore you, if you are lost, repent.  Repent, and acknowledge to God your sins.  Your pride.  Your short comings.  Yes, because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. You see, we just don’t know when we are going to leave this earth.  Obedience to God is so important.  

And I just know, for, I just see the deception.  I see, the “lost” world we live in.  

I see Pastors, and Christians, that are in “la-la land”.  They really are not aware, nor do they care for those who do not know truth, and they are not seeking the “lost” as Christ called us to do.  They are silent.  They do not have the urgency to bring people to the light.  They do not witness, to others.  They do not warn others.  The enemy has done a number on so many, because they do not want to judge.  

Quit confusing judging with warning a soul!  We are called to judge righteously.  And we are called to warn. See Ezekiel 33.  

And if you are not sharing the gospel, trying to win a soul, you may be lost yourself.  

Yes, think about that….. 

BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST; IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM.  FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD, AND OURSELVES YOUR SERVANTS FOR JESUS SAKE.  FOR GOD WHO COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS, HATH SHINED IN OUR HEARTS, TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST.  

II CORINTHIANS 4:3-6.  KJV.

We must reach out to the lost.  We must make sure we do not get lost ourselves.  We must beware of the enemies antics.  For he does come to kill, steal, and destroy.  We must be totally submitted to God in fear of God, for the bottom line is, he is the one who determines whether or not we can enter into His kingdom.  Yes fear God.  

Friends, only you can ask yourself this?  

Are you a lost soul?

People want true love.  And God wants them to have faith and yes true love.

I can show you how to have both.  I give very clear instructions in my book.

What “proof” do you have that any of these secret principles work?

That you write about in your book?  HOW TO HAVE FAITH MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I felt that question over, and over again….

And this is my answer.

This morning the Lord spoke to my heart, and I could sense, in my heart, that people need proof. He spoke to my heart, and told me, not everybody believes.  If it was that easy, every one would believe.  Sometimes you do have to prove it to people.

I am trying to get people to see, these secret principles that work for me, but faith, is very personal, and sometimes very private. I want people to see who I was before Christ, but also who I am now. And God has made all the difference. I give Him glory.  With praise, and honor with great thankfulness.  I am very grateful for every blessing God has given me.  He has proven Himself to me, with love.  I don’t doubt  who He is, or what He can do, any more.  All things are possible with God.

FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE.  LUKE 1:37.  King James version.

The whole book is proof because I know. This is why I write about these principles.  That I call “secret principles.”

But if you are looking for “fruit” as proof. My marriage, to my husband is evident. I have true love.

I have a marriage, that God has blessed. And there is a reason, why it is blessed. I give instruction, and yes definite reasons why in my book.  And I will be honest, if everybody did this, it would make it a lot easier.  It would be something that could be handed from one generation to the next.  It would be the missing link.  I know this “secret.”

You see, I understand, how it feels to be lonely, broken, and lost. For many years, I thought, I missed the boat, plane, and train to true love. I thought I was doomed to not find true love. I walked alone for many, many years. Yes, I prayed for a mate. And God brought my husband, but what we did and did not do, has brought an everlasting love to our marriage.

I call it a Faith Secret principle to true love. It is not something, to be honest, I wanted to write about. But God instructed me to write about it. And I did, and this is the proof, I have. I have been married for over 25 years, and very happily. And I do attest this secret, to our success. In fact I know it. This is the proof.

I want you to grow in who you are, in Christ, and yes, I do emphasize these principles, but if you are looking for true love, yes, I have the proof in my book, and I share it. It is chapter 26. THE SECRET PRINCIPLE OF MY FAITH TO TRUE LOVE.

Yes the proof is also who I am in Christ, and how I have changed, but that may not mean anything to you. Because you cannot see beyond your own loneliness, and loss of having someone to share life with. And I understand that. I was there, alone, broken and very lonely. I know the difference.

If you are lonely, and broken, and you have given up hope, about finding true love, I want to encourage you. Or if you are in a relationship, that needs to be fixed, this remedy can work as well.

This can change. And yes, if you follow my instructions in this, that is in my book. I know you will find success and happiness in your relationship. And yes true love. This proof may be what you need, for your own life to change. For you and your love interest. Yes it is my secret to true love, and it is proof to me, God has principles. And I obeyed.

Living happily ever after….

Thanks and blessings…to God almighty, Lord I am so grateful, and for my salvation too.  How great you are.

I also want to thank all who have taken time out of their day to read this.  May God show you His love. I pray for others.  To know Jesus, to know His love.  To know true love, because it is obtainable, and to yes, have faith.

LOVE FILLING THE VOID IN LIFE ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


If your interested in learning love principles, that will help your faith.  My book, could help you.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

If your interested in learning love principles, that will help your faith. My book, could help you. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Love….I sense in my spirit, that the Lord is longing to draw us closer to His throne.  To have a sweeter, and deeper relationship with Him.  To know Him, to see His power, and His glory revealed.   To have more of a personal relationship with Him.  To know true love.

There is a void, that we all have, if we are not close to Him.  If we deny Him, or if we do not work at this relationship of love.  For you see, it is a relationship.

It is not one-sided.  He has done His part, in so many ways, by revealing to us, a savior, and that is Jesus Christ.

God is a King, the King of Kings, and a King, does not have to do things according to what people expect, but we are to do things according to what He expects.

Merciful, and kind, loving, He reveals Himself to us in a sunrise, a sunset, a bird, a flower, a healing, an after thought, a miracle….

Yet, I believe He is ready to step out and do more, and reveal more.  If we only believe.  If we only obey.  If we only take what He has given to us, and we honor it.  We hold it as precious.  We do not abuse, this gift called grace.  For we know it came at such a great price of our Lord Jesus.

Hungry, and thirsty for our savior, will cause us to be fed, and to fill that void in our life.  Searching even “how” to love Him. Even through the good times.  Sometimes, the bad times, the times, where it seems He does not answer you, makes you realize, who He is.  It makes you realize, how important it is to get it right according to His standards.

You know the scripture says, we reap what we sow.  So you see, what you have done, in the past, to even get you to where you are now.

Nothing fills that void, like being near Him.  Nothing fills that void, if you have done something that will cause His holy spirit to be grieved.  But love, love will keep you.  Love will remind you, by the Holy spirit, not to grieve Him.

He says be Holy, for He is holy.  How can we, when we let other things get in the way of our relationship?  How can we, if we choose not to obey?  If we choose the ways of the world?

There is no way.   Only Christ is that way, the truth, and life.  If we would only see, with our spiritual eyes, and heart, how precious our Lords love is.

This is not about religion!  Please, no matter what you have been taught, please know, God is real.  But He does have His ways, His expectations.  His standard…..His love….

We are on the vine with Christ.  But, we cannot not bear fruit for Him.  We cannot withhold love, or withhold praise to Him.  We have to constantly be in a place, where we are loving Him, seeking Him, being obedient to Him, serving Him, serving others, walking in love.

Growing!  Not complacent, not passive, not quiet, not burying our talents in the ground, and not watering them so they can grow.

No we have to constantly be in a place, where we are yes hungry and for Him, for the King.  Being an expression of love.

Dear one, I just know, that we must seek God, we must let Him fill that void in our life.  Life is not life without Christ.

If you are not sure, how to find Christ, just call on Him, do some soul searching, some searching of King James scripture, and look for the holiness, and the authenticity of a real relationship, based on love.  I pray you find it.

I pray I do too.  I never want to lose this sense, of giving Him praise and glory.  I never want to lose this great love I have for Him.  But I have to do my part.  I have to nurture this love.  With Him, with others, and I cannot let other priorities, or success, or even failure, get in the way of that.

Finding my balance, finding my place, to always be near Him to fill that void, is my responsibility.  And I take it to heart.  I take it to understand, this thing of being fulfilled in life requires my part, and I know, nothing else can take the place of my Lord.

Nothing, so I guard my heart, with all that I can, to please Him.  I felt led to share this today,

I pray you are inspired as well.  May you see, how important it is to let Christ fill that void in your life.

Blessings, and love, Today is Valentines Day. (2014) Lots to do, but love has to be the priority.  Even as I write this.  I pray, you sense, and know how much God loves you, and you sense and know how much you love God.  Love never fails…

It may just begin, by repenting, and accepting Christ as your Lord and savior.  Even if you have done that before, but you sinned, clean the slate.  Love….

Just my Thoughts, Elena Ramirez

For in Jesus Christ neither circumicision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision but faith which worketh by love.  Galatians 5:6

HOW I KNOW THE VOICE OF JESUS (THE LONG ANSWER) ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ

AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE.  AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.  KJV. John 10:4-5.

How do I know the voice of Jesus?  I do want to tell you, and I want you to know this yourself, so you can hear only His voice.  He more then anything, wants you to know His voice, and to have truth to guide you.  He loves you.  Know that now, before I go on.   

Well there are a few factors, that come into place.  And this is my interpretation of the matter.  I know, that I know the voice of my Lord Jesus, for these reasons.  

Have you ever heard someone say, they hear, lots of voices?  Or this voice, or that, made them do something?

I don’t have that problem, thank God. I believe, I know enough of God’s word, that I still want to keep learning, and I am aware, not to depart from God’s truth, nor do I also play with other spiritual entities.  That needs further contemplation, that I will not add here, for the sake of space. But I will just say, I do not because I love my Lord, and I will not follow any other voices, or spirits.  God knew that from the beginning, because the enemy deceived Adam and Eve, by getting them to disobey God and to eat, from the tree of knowledge and of good and evil.  So we have to know this too.  I guard my heart, very carefully in this matter, because I do not want to get confused.   

The reason, I obey God in this, is because I do not want nor do I have a “spirit of confusion.”   I have always had a sense of good common sense, but the main reason, I do know my Lord’s voice, is by the Bible I use.  I use a King James Bible.  I was raised on the King James Bible.  So the anointing, and holiness, of that Bible, was I guess, for lack of a better word, was attached to me.  For as a child, I would read the King James Bible.  

The spirit, of right and wrong was with me, yet, because I was naive….  I did not know how hard my life would be because of disobedience. And because when I grew older, I departed from those truths.  Which was the worst mistakes of my life.  Because I did not take into consideration the consequences of making bad choices, I chose wrong.

Yet, I knew, not to make some of those choices.  This in the eyes of God is rebellion, it is disobedience.  It is called sin. And I want to talk about that, in some depth.  Because it is important, to know, anything we choose, that is not of God, is disobedience.

 We may even think we are doing the right thing, but if it is not based on truth, it is a lie.  When I was a young adult, trying to get back to God after disobeying, I began reading different Bibles, and my life was still a mess.  More lies…

And lies come from hell itself.  The devil is and was a liar. Where else, could he change truth, from a lie, and try and get away with it, but in a Holy Bible, because that will change it, and it will no longer be holy.  He wants to deceive us all.

And you have to see his ugly old characteristics, to be able to identify it within yourself as well.  He had pride, he was a liar, he wanted to take the glory from God, so he was deceptive, and hateful, and so much more, that is not like Christ.

So, we must be able, to discern, between truth, and a lie.  So lets begin with the characteristics of Christ.  We know Christ, IS TRUTH, THE WAY, AND LIFE.  John 14:6.  His ways are truth, and they show us the way, and give us life, and yes life abundantly.  When we do not know truth, we are confused.  We believe ‘voices” that can come from within, or yes, even from friends and acquaintances, that are also confused, and misled.  The enemy, can use these people, who you may even love, but their “influence” can mislead you as well.  So, we have to know truth, Gods truth.  We have to know God’s law.

 Now, even here I will interject, and say, many teachers, preachers, (false Prophets) will deny the law.  They confuse it in the New Testament, as it being the law, of God.  But Paul was talking about the law of death.  We are free, from the law of death, but we have to keep the law of God, to have that freedom.  We have to obey God.  Christ, told us, that He did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

So this is very, very important in our thinking, to want to hear the voice of Jesus.  To have discernment.  To know the difference in voices.  To obey God, and to do right in His sight.  We must want to obey God’s law.

 So where do we go to get God’s pure law?  We go to the oldest, and most purest version, of Gods word, to get that purity.  The King James Bible. (see Psalms 12:6-7 in a King James Bible, to see the preservation of it.) It has been established for 400 years.  God set it apart.  It has no copy rights, and it has not been changed.

Greedy publishers, cannot change it, or “corrupt” it, because it has been preserved.  Yes, they have taken the “lump” of that, and made their own versions, and corrupted it, because they have put their carnal hands to it.  Any other Bible, is not holy, it is not anointed.

Do your own careful, comparison.  But you will find words, that are totally different, in their definitions, so it changes the context, and yes, the content of the words, so they are different.  They may be similar, but they are not the same words.  They have actually removed some scriptures, and they denote the authority of Jesus Christ.  Some remove the name of the Father Jehovah, as the author.  In some places, they remove the name of the devil.  So you won’t know who Gods enemies name is.  

There are so many discrepancies.  I have found in my research.  There is no way, they can be holy.  So, because of this, they have turned the Bible, into a “Lie.”  Where does that come from? but the enemy of God, the devil.

So you have to see the discrepancies.  You have to see, it is part truth, but part lies. When I saw this, all confusion left me.  I understood, God.  I began to understand what He wanted from me.  Though the mystery of God, tells me, His ways, are not my ways.  Nor my thoughts His thoughts…yet we can have the mind of Christ.  Our minds can be renewed.  

But those Bible versions, had me stumped.

 And because these versions, have been compromised, it is partially a lie, it is not holy, it is not anointed, and it is not powerful, with the anointing, one needs, yes, and in case of an emergency.  Like needing a promise from God, for healing, guidance, etc.

 So the law, has been broken in this, because throughout God’s word, He has commanded, do not change, do not add, do not delete it, or you will be counted with the liars.  Proverbs 30:5-6.  EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE:  HE IS A SHIELD UNTO THEM THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM.  ADD THOU NOT UNTO HIS WORDS, LEST HE REPROVE THEE, AND THOU BE FOUND A LIAR.

This choice, of even using another Bible, could actually cause someone to lose their Salvation.  FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK.  IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK.  AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK.  Revelation 22:18-19.  

 So look at this scripture, very, very carefully.  It tells you, you will be denied, heaven.  You will not be able to enter there.  Your name will be removed, from the book of life.

And further more, it tells us in that last sentence, your desires, your promises, you are believing in, from those other versions, will not be granted to you, the promises of God, because they have added, changed, or deleted, God’s word.  Look at it! Alright, so this is the main reason, why I know my Jesus, and His voice.

But anything, that is a lie, that is not love, that is not kind, is not the voice of my Jesus.  I know His voice.  He does not condemn me, He does not criticize me. He does not tell me to do something, that goes against His truth, and word.  He does not tell me to do evil.  He directs me in truth.  And I know it is truth, because it is always based on His Holy word, the King James.

He is merciful, He is compassionate, He is kind, and yet, in truth He directs me and you.  Because His spirit, is in our heart.  But it will not be, if it is based on lies.  He will leave, the Holy Spirit, will leave you and you will not have the truth, and the wisdom you need, in your every day life.  Remember, sin, separates us from God.  He will not be in an unholy vessel.  So this is so important that we heed His voice.

If we only heed the voice from the King James Bible, and the spirit, which is the Holy Spirit, will direct us.  Remember this….because many of you think by using those other Bible versions, it will make the interpretation easier.  Easier to understand.  They get stumped on the wording, and call it archaic, etc.  But God does not change we change.  And we can adapt, and hear Gods voice clearly, from the translation of the King James.

Because it is the Holy spirit, that gives the interpretation.  It can only come from God Himself.  II Peter 1:20-21 tells us from the King James Bible that scripture, can only be interpreted, from the Holy spirit.  There is no private interpretation, which these Bibles, try to impose.   The interpretation can only come from a word, that is pure.  This is the only WAY.  The way of Christ, to hear His voice.  Because it is still holy.   It is determined by the Bible you use.

Christ told us, that His children, would hear His voice, which does not change, nor does he add to it, and that we would know His voice, and to another we would not follow.  I do not follow those other Bible versions, or read them because I do not want to confuse myself.  I want to always know His voice.  This is the short answer.  I know His voice.  Because it is always confirmed, from the Holy word, of the King James Bible.

This is what begins the process, of my faith, to trust in God.  By knowing what the King James Bible says.  This is how I know the voice, of my dear, kind, merciful Jesus, who saved me, for now, and for eternity.

 THEN SAID JESUS UNTO THEM AGAIN, VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU, I AM THE DOOR OF THE SHEEP.  ALL THAT EVER CAME BEFORE ME ARE THIEVES AND ROBBERS BUT THE SHEEP DID NOT HEAR THEM.  I AM THE DOOR; BY ME IF ANY MAN ENTER IN, HE SHALL BE SAVED, AND SHALL GO IN AND OUT, AND FIND PASTURE.  THE THIEF, COMETH NOT BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY:   I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  JOHN 10:7-10.

 Maybe right now, you are doubting, what I say.  Maybe you are confused.  Maybe, you have believed the lie….about those other Bible versions.  but I tell you this in love, which is what Christ said we would be known by.  Read John 13:34, to know, what we will be known by, and this is love.  As His disciples.

Please know, that this truth I tell you, I tell you, so you can get answers.  So you can get closer to Christ.  So you can know His voice.

 I tell you this, because to be honest, I learned the hard way.  My life was so broken, until I learned this.  I was like Humpty Dumpty, I could not be mended.  The pieces would not come together, until I learned this….and it is never to late.  If we have breath in us.  So with every breath I have, I praise God.  

But when I learned this, I learned who I am in Christ.  I am an ambassador of Christ.  I am highly favored, and I am His daughter clothed in righteousness.  Because He is love, and this is how I tap into His real love, by knowing His voice.

 I have even learned not to follow people, but Christ only. I know His voice, and He knows mine too.  We talk to each other often, but I am in my King James Bible daily.  

BUT YE BELIEVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ARE NOT OF MY SHEEP AS I SAID UNTO YOU.  MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME.  John 10:26-27.

Blessings, and love in Christ,  Just my Thoughts….. Elena Ramirez

ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL


I Thessalonians 5:22 ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL.

This scripture, warns us, to be careful.  That our conduct, can be analyzed, questioned, and judged, by others.  And yes, by God.

That what we do, can be determined, as evil.  By the appearance, of our actions.  By inappropriate behavior.  What is appropriate behavior?

The dictionary gives this definition for appropriate ~ suitable or proper in the circumstances.  So, if behavior is inappropriate, it is unsuitable and improper in circumstances.  Which can be considered evil….

In our world today, there are not many rules of conduct, enforced, or communicated.  As far as what is proper, in the sense, which may be considered “morally” valuable.  Yes, there are laws, but unless, someone, is taught, from an early age of what is right and wrong, they will miss, the lessons of life, that can give a person, a sense of direction, in this area.

The grace of God, offers all of us, a way, to find direction, and wisdom, in this area.  His Holy word, the Holy Bible, will do that.

To give us, a standard, for living upright, and well.   For we are all sinners, and need Gods direction.  But, we have to want to find direction in this, by seeking God.

One cannot walk the fence, when it comes, to living life pure, and holy.  You cannot have one foot, in the worlds system, and one foot, claiming to be a Christian.  I can say this, because I did it.  And because I did it, I see so many Christians, who claim they are Christians, yet, they do not obey Gods laws.  They do not try to live life holy, they do not “abstain” from immoral behavior.

And I could tell someone, your sinning.  But, thats something, that really I pray, by even my writings, would bring truth.  Instead of me, confronting someone.  Judging.  I hate judgement.  But we hate sin too.  So, there is always a balance.  But, if we are Christians, if we believe, we have our own personal responsibility, to abstain from the appearance of evil.   To know what Gods word says.  We have to be aware, God sees….everything!

How does one expect to be blessed, if they or any of us, do not obey God, in these things?  Look, no one has to judge anyone in this, but if we judged ourselves, and stopped, and looked within, to see, to try, and do it right, we could.  There are many examples, but lets talk about relationships, in this.

Tonight, I was watching, a television documentary, where a woman, was accused of having inappropriate behavior, with a minor boy.  Of a sexual nature.  Whether or not it was true, only God knows.  And the two people involved, know.

But what I found interesting, was this woman, had by her own actions, produced, evidence, of being inappropriate.  By texting him, by being flirtatious, by being overly attentive to him, and by actually talking dirty to him.  She admitted it.  But when accused of having gone further in this, she denied it.  Claiming, his response, was misunderstood, and that she walked away.  I am sorry, but her signals was saying, lets sin.  This gave me, and every one else who saw it, an “appearance of evil.”

In this world, we live in, everyone is judging our responses.

And I have learned, at an early point, in any relationship, or acquaintance.  Be forthright, be honest, be sincere, but have morals, values, and integrity.  What you do in private, should also be what you do in public.  What is done in private, should not have to be ashamed in public.

In other words, if you have a guideline, or a standard to follow, you can maintain, a sense of right and wrong, to avoid, problems.  To avoid miscommunications.  To avoid, attracting the wrong people.  To avoid, evil.

What kind of signals are you sending out?  Everybody wants to have fun.  But we need to teach our children, this, we need to learn it ourselves.  And we must be on guard, in the sense, that we cannot always, just let our hair down, and go wild.  Being flirtatious, even though, being overly friendly, can be misinterpreted.  Opening any kind of door, that will let the devil in, is dangerous.

There are so many people, who have no concept, of right and wrong to begin with, that they can fall into trouble, because their conduct does look evil.  Thats the devils goal.  He wants people, to be misled, to be misinformed, to be caught unaware.

We must always, always, be in prayer, seeking God, seeking truth, seeking, the right way. Departing from evil.  Departing from evil doers.  Departing from things, that hinder us, from receiving blessings.  We must not do any one harm.  Yes, even with our words.

Maybe, no one taught you, good, or God, or anything, of integrity.  But if you have a mind, and a soul, and you can read, even as you are reading this, you can, know, without a doubt, God can guide you.  God can change you.  Go to His word, and again, I express, and recommend, the King James Bible.  Not any other version, where the words, are so changed, that the integrity, is compromised.  God does not stutter.  Neither should you.  In this life, we all live.  There are so many, ways, that the enemy deceives people.  God does not use a rubber sword, when He fights the enemy.  He says, IT IS WRITTEN!  We have to be sharp, the word of God, makes us sharper, than a two-edged sword, to fight off the enemy.  Thats why I am so adamant, about using the King James, and nothing else.  Because of the purity of the word.

All I know, is we have to seek God, and to be careful, in these last days, for Christ will return.  What are you playing with?  What are you dabbling in?  That is not of God?

God can turn you from evil, to His goodness.  Just stop, and turn from evil, and even the appearance of it.  And know, God’s wrath, will come.  It may not even be in this moment, as you read this.  But it will come.  Now can be a day, of reckoning.  Now can be a day, of making things right with God.  Yes, its a choice.  But one, I would choose, to the glory of God.  Abstain from all appearance of evil.  Whatever it is.  You know…..God has shown you.

Now you must take it to His throne.  Or regret it….

In Christ, Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

Father, deliver us from evil.  Help us to be mindful, in Christ, to watch our behavior.  To abstain from anything that offends you, or brings or opens the door to evil.  You do forgive, but we must come to you humble.  Turning away from sin.  Turning away from the devil.  Help us Lord, to see your truth, and to not be deceived by the enemy.  Lord, holiness, you call us to holiness.  Lord, whatever it is that the reader may be dealing, with, you can change it.  I know.  As a testimony, I know you are God.  But we have to see it, we have to bring it to your throne.  Lord, let us judge ourselves first, so we are not judged, by even the appearance of evil.  Help us Lord, in this, and make a way.  For Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  In Jesus name.  Amen

HOW TO GET UNDERSTANDING…..


Have you ever tried to communicate with someone, and they are so caught up in what they have to say, that they just don’t hear you? They cannot perceive the message, or the goal of the message, because they may pick up on one thing, and discard the rest of the thought?

I wonder how many times, we do that to God? And how He must shake his head, and just let us be? And He will let us be, for He is a gentleman. He never forces, anything on us. He always gives us choices.

He makes His word, accessible, and available, if we search for Him. He gives us prayer, to have access to Him. But, if in that prayer, and in that time, if we do not stop and listen, how do we expect to get understanding?

First of all, we have to be aware of this. It may very well be a “learned behavior” that we can change, by first of all recognizing, we may have a problem.

Changing your attitude, to recognize, that first of all, try, not to be so defensive, or to always having to spill the beans, in expressing, so to speak….You know God knows, our needs. He knows every thought….but are we listening? We may do that with others, as well.

And even with others, take a deep breath, and be a good listener. Practice makes perfect, and maybe if we are patient with others, maybe we can ourselves, grow, to be more understanding….And understanding of God.

Just my thoughts, with love,

How I long to understand God, and His ways. But I do know, I have to change my own attitude daily. A commitment, to try and listen, and to understand his ways…to please him.

Feel free to share this….maybe it will help bring some understanding, to someone, you are trying to reach…..

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, AND I SHALL KEEP THY LAW, YEAH I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART. PSALMS 119:34

A Prayer of Honor and Hope…

Lord, by your Holy spirit, speak to me.  Give me understanding, and patience.  Help me to hear your voice clearly.  Help me to hear others as well, and to have a spirit, that is patient, to listen.  Observant.  Lord, not to tear up, but to build.  To bring you into the scenario, whatever it may be.  To know what to do.  To have guidance.  To grow….to change, to be the best that I can be, in Christ, and helping others along the way as well.  Lord, help me to have understanding.  I ask this in Jesus name.  Amen

ARE YOU INDEPENDENT OR DEPENDENT ON GOD THIS FOURTH OF JULY?


I love my nation, the United States of America.  And our history, is such an inspiration, as to where we came from, who we are, and why we are the great nation that we are.

This is the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence, that was established July 4th 1776.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We established, our Independence, from England, because we wanted to serve God, and do things our way.  Not religion, but basically relationship.    We wanted freedom of speech, and freedom in all areas of our life.  Or at least, that is my interpretation.

And it just made me think, that we are a free nation.  But what do we do, in this freedom, if we are free from God?

I appreciate my freedom in this country, because of the Declaration of Independence.  But I never, want to be independent of God.  Never.

Many of us, have the rights we have, because we do live in this great country.  It is a privilege, to live here in the United States, if I do say so myself.  Because I see many nations, do not have the  freedoms that we have.

But what good is it, if we are “Independent” from the God, who created us and gave us our rights?

This day, I feel compelled, to “declare” my own “Declaration of Dependence” to the God who created me.  I want to separate myself, from unbelief, and doubt, and fear, and embrace, what God promises me by his word.  For, I believe, every promise from God.

I am so grateful, God made a way, by Jesus Christ, so I truly can be free, and free indeed.  Now I know, this is a personal declaration.  But I tell you in Christ’s love, that I just feel like we need to bless God.  We ask God to bless America, but do we really want to bless God?

I know, I do.  I am grateful, for my salvation.  My declaration, is pretty basic, but it makes sense to me.

MY PRAYER AND DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE TO GOD:

Father, I declare, and embrace your promises, from your Holy word.  I declare, you are the one true God,  And to me, there is no other.  I declare, by the blood of Jesus, and by his sacrificing of His life, that I am free, and free indeed.  

According to your promises, from your Holy word.  I declare, and believe, that the word of God, is truth, it is infallible, and the uncorrupted, word of you God, almighty.  I recognize You my Lord.  And I bless you.  Who I adore, and praise, and thank.  

I declare, and give thanks for the great nation, I live in.  This United States. How I pray, every nation, would be founded on your truths, and love.  

Lord, I declare, my “dependence” belongs to you, creator of heaven and earth, and my life.  

I declare you, are my God, and I am declaring, my gratefulness to you, for letting me live in this great nation, of the United States.  

I declare, today, and with my own voice, this fourth of July, that yes, I bless you my God, and I ask that you bless America.  

I declare, and honor, those, who have given their life, to serve this nation.  To protect our rights.  I pray, America, will never forget, where we came from, who we are, and because of you, we truly are free and free indeed, if we recognize, Christ our savior.  

This is my declaration and prayer, of dependence to you Lord God Almighty, and I can write this, and say this, because of the Declaration of Independence, that was written in 1776.  

Thank you Lord.  For every good and perfect gift, that I have, is because of you, almighty God.  And because of this Lord, I will serve you all my life.  Yes, Lord, this is my “Declaration of Dependence to you.”  In God, I trust.  

In Christ, and love, “Just my Thoughts”  Elena Ramirez
