PRACTICE TRUTH SO YOU CAN BE FREE ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez
I want to say this, and I want to say it in love. Because I see some struggling with truth. I see how it paralyzes you. You are afraid. You might even feel like a hypocrite.
You don’t think there will be grace or forgiveness. Especially in matters of loyalty, and friendship. You want to be loyal to God, but you cannot if you are not to others. Because you are not being honest. It shows. It seems to be a double standard. You think that there is no hope. You are in a prison, because you have not learned how to break out of the chains, you, yourself, have put on you.
I grieve for you, because I love you. I grieve for you, because I know more then anything Christ loves you. But you are struggling right now, and you do not have to. Let the truth, be the truth, and let it fall off of you. Break the chains, and if anything, relate yourself to being free. Even if you were denied. Be free, be courageous, and be love. This is what counts, and you have to see, how you become your own enemy when you hide the truth. You are hiding it. And hurting yourself.
Scripture tells us, the truth will set us free. And I will be honest with you. Gods KJV truth set me free. Because I use it, and live by it.
There were things in my life, that held me prisoner, I was so ashamed….but I know the difference. Even now, I still make mistakes, that I pray are not sin. But I look at them, I don’t make excuses, I apologize if I have to. I repent, and then I go on.
Even now, the enemy, tries to whisper cruel and mean things, to remind me, and I say, “Shut up devil, I took it to the cross, in repentance.” I plead the blood of Jesus in truth!
I know what Gods word can do to change someone. From sin. To His sweet righteousness.
Start with His KJV word, start sharing it, and see the difference. Grow. Your on the vine with Christ. Start sharing that truth, and see how the truth will set you free in other areas. It will, it will do something so great for you. But as you are breaking the chains, on you. You are breaking the chains off of someone else. Thats always the goal, for His glory.
But if you do not, there will be things in your life, that will keep you in bondage, because you don’t use it, and its right there.
You have to see yourself in bondage. And why you hide a lie. You have to see, how it holds you back.
See the scriptures right in front of you. Open the King James Bible, book, tell others, and be free.
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. JOHN 8:32.
I want my Christian brothers, and sisters to see this. I plead with them to know truth. I speak to all people, but how can a Christian, who is not seeing this, actually able to minister effectively?
I know God can use any bit of truth, even the smallest. But when the “lump” is compromised. When the truth, is distorted, into part truth, and part lies. The enemy can come in, and deceive. Let no man steal your crown, Christ warns. Its in the first fruits in honoring God, in obedience, in seeing truth. That can make this difference between God and a counterfeit.
FOR IF THE FIRST FRUIT BE HOLY, THE LUMP IS ALSO HOLY; AND IF THE ROOT BE HOLY SO ARE THE BRANCHES. ROMANS 11:16. KJV.
A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENETH THE WHOLE LUMP. GALATIANS 5:10 KJV.
Here leaven is referring to the wrong doctrine, and I would say because of these false bible versions.
But, this is what I am seeing with many Christians. Who are not choosing truth, but choosing the counterfeit.
They are choosing the counterfeit. They are choosing the lie. They go to battle for the lie. They go to battle for the false prophet. They go to battle, thinking, they are doing right, but what they are doing is so wrong in the sight of God. If only they had this much passion for the true Kingdom of God.
I have seen this with friends, with people I love. And as I try and even speak truth, I turn into the bad guy. According to them, I turn into the mean one. I turn into someone, who is coming against Gods anointed, for they remind me, “touch not my anointed.” (funny I taught this person this scripture and others) but anyway, I have seen it.
They forget to love. They forget not to return evil, for evil. They want to make me the outcast. Just because I uphold truth, and my King James bible… For thus saith the Lord!
I have actually shopped, with some of my friends, and we go into Christian book stores, and they choose the book, or cd, that the fake prophet has written, and they are so inspired. They love their ears tickled. But I did not say anything…
But they hate me now, because I don’t tickle ears any more. I never really did, tickle ears, but the fruit, has been compromised. Even with other lies. That came in, and it grieves me, because I could not stop it. But I am speaking up, because I am alarmed, at how they grasp these false messages. And embrace, and put up on a pedestal that false prophet. Even on their posts.
I might not even say anything, most times, I don’t, but every once in a while when something comes across my desk, I might say; Like wow, did you hear what that person said? And I present, what they said, not what I said, but the proof is in a video, or in their own words, yet they get mad. And they get mad at me.
Well truth be, I am called to speak truth. I am not famous, I haven’t gotten a book deal, and reached success, according to the worlds standards. So, if anybody listens to me, for truth, I pray they hear that. But I will not compromise truth, to please people, or tickle ears.
Because I don’t follow anybody, but Christ, and what my King James bible says. I don’t even admire anybody right now, because I haven’t truly found any leaders, that uphold the King James, or speak a strong salvation message. I just don’t.
Nope, what I see are these prosperity messengers, or these lying prophets, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote religion. (Rules, regulations, traditions made by men, and groups.) Or even with the women, they ride on their husbands coat tail. And I won’t attend their church, nor will I embrace them by promoting them. Let alone, following them.
Really…. oh well.
But it does grieve me, and if it grieves me, I know it has to grieve God, for the Christian, who does not see the truth in these false prophets. In the lying prosperity message, etc. It grieves God when the word, is twisted, and turned around by these fake bibles. It grieves God, because it defies Him, with no fear of God, or the consequences.
I fear God.
God sees, when the pastor, who denies, what KJV scripture, says, who might even have an agenda, to promote, division. Who does not tell everyone, or teach to bow, before Christ. That somehow or another, a group of people, is not a part of that. Yet the word says, there is no difference between the jew or gentile. That all will bow, and confess Jesus is Lord. These pastors who do these kind of things to sell books, or cds, well its obvious, they want to be front and center. Not Gods King James word.
And sadly, not God Himself. They defy that, whats wrong with you folks, who do that, are blinded.
I always look at each pastors, bible, reference. Is it King James, and usually its a counterfeit, they use.
I don’t have that agenda, to be front and center. I don’t. I want my Lord to be glorified, by truth, not by lies. I don’t want to hear, I never knew you. From Christ. Like I said, I fear God, and I know enough of my Bible, to see this. I am not a know-it-all. But what I do know, I will show for the glory of God, and only God.
I feel for my brothers and sisters, in Christ, who embrace these false prophets. Who cannot get true discernment, and become confused, because they even embrace fake word, with these false bible versions. I feel for them. Because they embrace the prosperity message.
But, I will continue to walk in truth, I will write truth, I will walk in love. And if I make enemies, oh well, God fights my battles, and I know it. And I don’t even have to see it, I know they will reap what they sow, because this is scriptural. Vengeance is HIS, and I can walk on, because I forgive. I will not allow that poison in my heart, and soul. We are temples of the living God, and it makes me wonder who is living in some of these temples? Its not God, for God is love…..
I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOU THROUGH THE LORD, THAT YE WILL BE NONE OTHERWISE MINDED: BUT HE THAT TROUBLETH YOU SHALL BEAR HIS JUDGMENT, WHOSOEVER HE BE. GALATIANS 5:10 KJV.
But I know the difference, and I will not follow anybody but Christ, through my King James bible.
My bible, speaks about truth, about who God is, what His commandments say. It speaks, about the salvation, we can have through Christ. It speaks, about warning, others, and maybe this is what I am trying to do, because even the “righteous” Christian, who thinks they are right. According to Ezekiel 33. Needs to be warned. (read it yourself)
I am warning here…. Because they think its judging someone, but its warning! Don’t confuse judging with warning, if you are seeking truth. Because you will get confused.
It warns us Christ tells us to get right with Him, keep our garments clean. (repent daily) Yet, some thinks bible is about the seed, and harvest, or about tithing, and they hold onto that, and let go of the truth. They embrace the counterfeit.
I will continue to see through false messages, who thinks its only grace that saves them and does not embrace the law, they will find out and be in for a rude awakening, when they stand before God, because God throughout His word, says, keep His commandments. Yet they throw the law out.
But the only way, I can continue to see through false messages is to be totally submitted to God. To obey Him. To give no place to the enemy. And this is is my goal. And I pray thats your goal, as well.
But the counterfeit lies, that are out their in full force, have hurt the body of Christ, and nobody, wants to take the side of truth. Oh well, I will walk the narrow road, by myself.
For the friends, I have lost, even recently, have taught me, and shown me, fruit, that was counterfeit. Not of love. Returning evil for evil. Woe unto them that call good evil. And evil good. Giving me the silent treatment, when I gave grace. Not truly forgiving… No all of these things, have shown me, more then ever. Truth.
But I will continue with Christ. With His truth, and with His love. That is not compromised. I feel for my brothers and sisters in Christ, I truly do. I see, how the world is lost, and those that could make a difference, do not, because they let the lump be compromised. I see, how it weakens our faith, I see how it can open the door to the enemy. But if I warn them I then become their enemy.
Its their choice, to not choose God, and His truth, and to choose the counterfeit. But He will judge. Let alone knowing, they reap what they sow. And if I could only get someone to see this, to repent, to choose wisely, then maybe my gift and calling, would bring glory to God. If I could pull them from hells fire. To keep their garment clean, and not with spot.
Because I serve, God and only God, and I submit to God, I renounce, and denounce the enemy, and want nothing to do with lies that create counterfeits.
As I close, please, remember this. Don’t overthrow Gods truth, and choose the counterfeit. Please don’t. You will regret it, maybe for eternity, if you don’t repent, and change. Please…..
AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHERE THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE, AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER. REVELATION 20:10 KJV.
Blessings, in Christ only,
Sometimes, approaching someone in truth, is hard. I understand. But sometimes, you have to find the courage to speak it, say it, because as the scripture says, it sets us free.
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. JOHN 8:32 KJV.
I suppose, thats why I am writing this. Because I am searching for truth. But I am not the one withholding it.
I understand, some people have a hard time with truth. I understand, I have the boldness, to speak it, and to reveal it. Now I know there are some things, wisdom, has taught me, about that.
Concerning silence, and I don’t want this to be confused, either. Because there is silence, with grace. And there is silence, with the intention to hurt someone with the “silent treatment.”
But recently, I read a GIF, that said; “Some friends, go for long periods of time, without communicating, but they never question the friendship, and remain friends.”
And I thought…. that used to be me, a few months ago…..
And I won’t get into details. But I have changed my stance. After some time, after some reflection, after letting things settle a bit.
I see how not telling truth, can destroy. Not communicating…..Avoiding truth, making excuses, not being accountable. I no longer trust silence. From anyone. In fact, truth be, I only trust God. I am glad it happened. Because I have learned how things can change. How people can. And only God keeps His word.
But to apply it here….I no longer trust a lack of communication. Because it is hiding a lie, of being offended. Or other things…
You see, silence is not always golden.
Lies, when you trust people, and believe the best in them, yet their motives are different, you see, if only communication had been applied, at the time, then a “lie” would not have had power.
I saw this firsthand. You see, When someone denies the truth, even after you asked them. And you see the evidence of truth, because it was not only obvious, it was not a coincidence. Something was spoken simultaneously. Yet you asked, for the truth, and it was denied. You see the truth, of a lie, because it was not communicated. It tried to protect someone, it tried, to avoid truth. It went into denial….
It tried to be a secret.
But do they not see, it gave place to the enemy? Because he is the father of lies?
And it snowballed. It got bigger, and it tried to destroy. Yet you extended grace.
The wrong kind….even though the motive was heart felt, it was given in a lie.
For, not all people, have the same intention in matters of truth, and friendship, and loyalty, and honesty.
I guess, I am, writing about this, because I am not trying to hurt anybody, or myself. But I am trying, in my own little way, to speak truth and love. Because I want a lie, to be exposed….
But I will not confront someone, and beg for truth. I can be silent too…. I can and have walked away.
I suppose respect has taught me this…..respect for God to do His job in such matters.
But I have my part. He says forgive. I do, yet I think about it…..
But because I know that our Lord, hates liars. He hates and sees, how lies, come from the enemy. He knows, we cannot truly be free, until, we speak truth. For it will set us free. We cannot be silent, if we truly want to be free in Christ. I want truth, for those who were involved, to be free. Thats all. In love, in forgiving, in mercy….
Yet, I want to be free from it, because no matter how much I say, I forgive. I am reminded, of how the enemy destroyed something very precious to me, in friendship. Trust. They say trust is earned.
Maybe it could be earned again, because I do have a gracious heart. I don’t know, and this is not a guarantee, that I would. Because too much silence has gone by.
But I will not use, grace to be silent, to withhold love and communication. Truth! To purposely hurt someone, as it was to me.
It would require sacrifice but not from me. You see, if I had other motives, then I would not respect myself. I would actually understand, even the silent treatment….and maybe that was me, before I truly saw what Christ did. But not now. I have come too far. My sins, are covered, and in fact, I daily go to the throne, in repentance.
But I do respect who I am in Christ, because I will not try to find loop holes, or avoid, my own sins. I go to the cross, and I go to those who have been offended.
And I apologize, when I am wrong. But it is sad, when you have done that, and it was still thrown in your face. People, that do that, did not forgive, not truly. There is the fruit in that. And it does not come from the Holy Spirit. So please, before you judge someones spirit in these matters. Look at what you did first.
Why I write this, is only because I will not let the enemy, think, he won. Because something that is given by God, cannot be taken away, unless it wants to be taken away. True friendships, last a lifetime, even if someone thinks its only a season.
And a friend truly loves at all times. One may say one thing, about friendship, and that it is “Godgiven” but if the fruit reveals a lie, and denial. The gift was denied. It truly, was not recognized as a gift, from God, to honor it. I am talking symbolically. But I am also talking about this, by actions. For it affects the spirituality of a choice. God will not bless a lie.
Because actions, showed, they did not care, that it was God given…. Anything that God gives to us, is holy. Marriage, etc. Even friendship. But if friendship is not treated as holy, and treated like the world would, in actions, and lies. Obscenities…
Well the friendship will break, because God did give it in holiness. But we have the responsibility to honor it, to protect it, to offer communication, and not close the case.
If anything to go to God….and do it His way. For He is the way, the truth, and life.
Same thing with our salvation, you cannot treat what Christ did for you on the cross, shabbily. Because you deny the holiness. This is breaking a covenant. Christ did not break it. One did, by allowing sin.
I suppose this is why God extends grace to us, to come to His throne. Because He loves us, He wants to spare us, the legality of what sin, and lies do. This is why He sent Christ, for only Christ is holy.
But to go to others, as well, and admit a wrong doing. But if you ask for forgiveness, ask for it, because you meant it, not because you got caught in a lie.
Stop making excuses. To clear the slate. To clear your conscious. Do not give the enemy any place in that which you thought was “Godgiven.” Don’t give mixed signals. Focus on what you did first.
Then go to the cross, and see, what our sins, did to Christ.
If other offenses are there, communicate them, don’t hide them in your heart or the other person will never know.
You see, truly as the scripture says. The truth, will set you free. Be free. But you have to recognize the lie. You have to admit the truth, you have to see your part in it. Or you will never grow, to the potential, you could have, in Christ.
I am extending a chance right now. I believe God is too, or I would not be writing this. I love how He uses me. He uses my hurts, He uses, my experiences…..For He knows, I will always try to bring Him glory in these matters.
Maybe to “whom it may concern,” will see this. Will grow. Will not let silence be lost. As a chance. But chances do not last forever.
Maybe thats why I would urge, implore anybody. Get right with God, first, repent, admit the lie. Then go to who you lied to, or who you offended. Don’t think, because you may not see evidence, that you fooled someone.
Because what you did, is you hurt yourself. God did see you doing this. Even if they don’t know. Tell them. Grow…..
Such a fine line. Is it worth it? Thats between you and God. Yes it may hurt, you may be denied. This is not a guarantee that things can be restored. But you freed yourself. Isn’t that important? You are responsible, for your own soul. No matter what….We cannot control others, or manipulate them. In truth or a lie.
Because we never know. Time is precious. So are friendships, so are relationships, and family, but lies only destroy. Don’t lose a chance….
Make it right, because you have and know the good of who God is.
That truly is God given, but He won’t honor lies….
I HAVE NOT WRITTEN UNTO YOU BECAUSE YE KNOW NOT THE TRUTH, BUT BECAUSE YE KNOW IT, AND THAT NO LIE IS OF THE TRUTH. I JOHN 2:21 KJV.

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