WHEN PASTORS ARE DECEIVED BY THE DEVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_789Its a very sad thing, when you see and know a Pastor has been deceived by the devil.

When you see Pastors push people away from truth, from Gods true word.  Its a sad thing, when you don’t see love.  When you see Pastors, talk about other churches, and puff themselves up, as if they know the truth.  But they do not see the error of their own ways.  

We are called to love one another.  And I know that there are things, we do not always agree on.  But when a Pastor, does not have patience.  Does not see the truth, the perspective from God himself.  He no longer, is guided by God, or the Holy spirit.  But by the devil himself.  

They become deceived by the devil.  

We are called to look at the fruit.  By their fruit you will know them.  I have been to so many churches, and I have searched, long, and hard, for truth.  I have searched for love.  Love that is holy from God.  Love that is in line with Gods truth.  Love that is compassionate as Christ is. Love that accepts all people.  And encourages, people of all races to attend.  

I know we are all different, we are all growing on the vine at different stages.  But Christ said, we would be known by the love.  

And there are some things I tolerate, in love, but doctrine, is not one thing I compromise on.  I do search for a place, where King James word is.  But where there is a balance in truth. 

But when I see a pastor, or a church, where growth is not there.  Something, is wrong.  Its not Gods fault, but the pastor, or the leader of the church is not doing something.  

I guess, I have had a taste of this or that, so with discernment, I know, what pleases God.  By worship, by prayer, at the beginning of a service, so the Holy Spirit, can have full control.  By love.  For if love comes from the pulpit, it would flow to the whole congregation.  

When Pastors, are not patient, in even disagreeing, what does that say?  If they do not communicate, when spoken to…If they accuse members of discord, and insist they are protecting the congregation, yet, pushing someone away who is sincerely, asking, for guidance, and they are reprimanded, just because they ask, thats not love.  

This according to Jeremiah 23;1 is scattering the body of Christ.  It is not unity, but it is causing division.   A house divided cannot stand.  Christ warned us, that they would push us out of our churches.  Out of their synagogues.  This is a Pharisee spirit.  Beware. 

He told us, these things. It does not make one feel better, but we know. 

It is a sad state, we are all in, as the body of Christ.  And it very well does make me understand, why many people stop going to church.  Religion, is a very strange thing. When people embrace, “religious” principles, that go against the word of God, they are thereby making their own rules, regulations, and traditions.  And they lose something.  They are losing, truth, their emotions, they are losing relationship.  Relationship with Christ.  They are creating their own religion.  

They lose the guidance of the Holy spirit, by the truth.  Yes, it has to be truth, Gods holy King James word.  To take the responsibility, as a Pastor,  I am sure would be a very difficult job.  Yet, with God guiding, I know it would be easy.  He says, take my yoke it is easy.  

But it is sad, when the truth, is picked over, or the gospel is watered down.  And instead there is a tickling of the ears.  To please people.  Or to please just the pastor. Himself. But not God. Theres always a balance, and a false balance, is an abomination to God.  

To lose balance, of truth, to lose balance, and accept, that salvation is secure, is not in fear of God.  Its not taking to heart the many scriptures, that God has given us.  Salvation can be lost.  Folks, salvation, is a gift.  But it is a contract.  We have our part.  God did His part, by sending His son to die for us.  Christ did His part, by going on the cross, being obedient, to the Father.

But we have our part, we are to work out our salvation, with trembling, and fear.  Fear of God.  For He is the one who will judge us.  He is the one, who can either allow us in heaven or hell.  But it is by what we did on this earth.  

We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Repentance, is what keeps you secure.  Obedience to God. Do not forget that, no matter what you get out of this.  Remember repentance, is what keeps the slate clean.  In fear of God. 

Never take that for granted.  If you do not see altar calls, for the lost, the broken, the backslider, to come to the altar to repent.  That is a church, where the pastor is being disobedient.  Don’t go there.  When you see communion is not served.  In remembrance of Christ.  Don’t go there.  If you see, God is not invited at the beginning of the service to have full reign, to guide that service, in prayer.  Don’t go there.  If you see, worship, is not encouraged, don’t go there.  Worship must be always to please… the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  If you do not see prayer, for one another, and it is not encouraged, then don’t go there.  If you see, the pastor, does not encourage everyone, in their own gifts and callings don’t go there.  If you see the message, turns into a prosperity message, and someone twists and claims scripture for self, but dismisses salvation.  Run….don’t follow them.  Follow Christ.  

If you do not see the pastor, love the people, but hides, and is evasive, run from that church.  If you see, the scorner, the person, that thinks they are only right, but everybody else is wrong, at the pulpit, run from that church.  

If you see, someone else being denied freedom of speech, or does not let someone express themselves, this is mind control.  We all need to communicate now, and then, this is not discord, just because you talk.  To another brother or sister in Christ. Or because you have different ideas. For someone who would take this stance, is very insecure themselves.   This is someone, if they could would burn you at the stake if they could.  

Instead, of talking, or communicating to someone, in love but putting someone down.  This kind of spirit is trying to take away your own ability to think on your own.  This is someone who does not embrace freedom to be themselves.  Or others.

If someone has no respect to your pace, as to where you are, as a baby Christian, or as, even a seasoned Christian, or as just someone who wants to learn in Christ, or wants to understand the church, and are called, disrespectful, troublemakers, or someone causing discord, these kind of pastors are not walking in love.  And, in Christ. We all need to ask questions, and love each other.  If you don’t see the love run.

You don’t have to deny someone a right to think to be a leader.  You don’t have to hit someone with the Bible, or hit someone back in the head with the Bible.  Just because they disagree.  Sure share word, and again, I only suggest King James word, because other versions are corrupt, and no longer holy or anointed, but share love, more then anything. 

Run from them.  Don’t let someone control your mind, or your soul, by being a part of them.  By even being a member of that.  It flows from the top, and it will flow to you, and decay your soul. 

Salvation should always be the goal of the pastor.  And the goal to bring the backslider back to the throne of God.    If you do not see it, this is a dead church. 

Sometimes it takes a while to see the signs.  But God will protect you.  Just stay obedient to God.  Even if you don’t see love from the pulpit.  Even if you have been rejected.  Even if you were misunderstood.  

Stay true to God.  Pray for that pastor, for you see, they have been deceived.  Pray for the members of that church.  You see, they are Gods lambs.  Not the pastor, who is disobedient to God.  He sees the wolf in sheeps clothing. Just stay true to God, do not get discouraged.  

God loves you, and He will guide you.  You don’t wish or hope anything bad for anybody.  But you know what God says.  

For, it is a sad thing, when you know, truth, and love, and you see something from the pulpit that is not of God.  

Just depart, and walk in peace.  And always stay humble, and pray.  You may be sad, or broken hearted, because it is a sad thing.  To see, division, to see disobedience, to see religion, raise its ugly head, and call it Gods truth.  

But you know who you are in Christ, and you choose to walk in love.  Walk away.

Remember, if you have been accused, or hurt by someone, remember, Christ will stand by the accused.  If they are innocent.  If they are being obedient to Him.  You see the devil, will use an accuser but that accuser has a place right in hell.  

Sad, sometimes the devil will use a Pastor, to be an accuser.  And they don’t see it, because they think they are right.  And they scatter the church.  This happens, when a Pastor is deceived by the devil. 

AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION, AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST:  FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT.  AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY, AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:10-11.   

WOE BE UNTO THE PASTORS THAT DESTROY AND SCATTER THE SHEEP OF MY PASTURE.  SAITH THE LORD.  THEREFORE THUS SAITH THE LORD OF ISRAEL AGAINST THE PASTORS THAT FEED BY PEOPLE.  YE HAVE SCATTERED MY FLOCK, AND DRIVEN THEM AWAY, AND HAVE NOT VISITED THEM, BEHOLD I WILL VISIT UPON YOU THE EVIL OF YOUR DOINGS, SAITH THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 23:1  KJV.

FOR THE PASTORS ARE BECOME BRUTISH, AND HAVE NOT SOUGHT THE LORD:  THEREFORE THEY SHALL NOT PROSPER, AND ALL THEIR FLOCKS SHALL BE SCATTERED.  JEREMIAH 10:21 KJV.

MANY PASTORS HAVE DESTROYED MY VINEYARD, THEY HAVE TRODDEN MY PORTION UNDER FOOT, THEY HAVE MADE MY PLEASANT PORTION A DESOLATE WILDERNESS.  THEY HAVE MADE IT DESOLATE, AND BEING DESOLATE IT MOURNETH UNTO ME, THE WHOLE LAND IS MADE DESOLATE, BECAUSE NO MAN LAYETH IT TO HEART.  JEREMIAH 12:10-11.  KJV.   

Christ saved me, as I repented.  You see, I was saved at an early age.  But I sinned, after that.  But if I had died, before repenting, I know, I would have found hell as my destination.  

But I overcame the enemy, even now,  by the blood of the lamb.  By Gods truth.  Not mine, but His. By rededicating myself. By repenting.  By my testimony to the mercy of God, in salvation.

These things, I have experienced.  But I so know the difference friends.  If you need prayer, or kindness, feel free to write to me.  I will lift you up to the Father.  I will try to be someone to put salve on your own wounds, to ease your pain, because I do understand.  And I am healed in Christ.  

Blessings, and love in Christ,

Elena Ramirez

One thing, I have seen, is people do not know how to apologize. Maybe they repent to God, I don’t know. But I have seen especially here on social media, FB, Twitter, and other networks, is that people, really hide behind their computers.

They say spiteful, mean attacking words, that really do not bring light, or substance. And I don’t know, I have had a few battles myself. Where maybe I brought it on myself.

But when I am wrong. I apologize. I don’t let it pass, without humbling before God, and others. I have sometimes, just wished someone well, Gods blessings, and they took my words, and wanted to argue. This recently happened. And I could not understand it.

But I don’t have to take it either. And if someone cannot show me some respect. I don’t need to further communicate with that person. I forgive. But I don’t put up with that kind of nonsense.

I have enough self respect, dignity, and better sense, then to go in the gutter, with someone, who does not want to be reasonable. Especially when I know in my heart, I do not have an ulterior motive, to make someone look bad.

Its sad, Christians, in particular, who still have the ways of the world, in their actions, but have not seen that Christ called us to love one another, to be humble, and to forgive.  I would think that also includes apologizing.  I just don’t think we see, how this holds us back.  How we cannot grow.  How we can get roots of bitterness. How we open a door to the devil.  Folks, this is spiritual warfare.  We have to see, what are we doing!  

In this election process, I have seen filth come out of some people, that say they are Christians.

And I ask myself, where is the love, that Christ said we would be known by? Oh well. Repenting, asking God to show us who Christ is, and yes apologize.  If you call yourself a Christian, love should be there!  You cannot have it, if you cannot learn to apologize, that means being humble.  That means throwing away that pride.  It means asking God….

To forgive you.  It means, that we reap what we sow.  Do you want to reap rudeness, mean spirits coming your way, because you are unable to apologize?  Folks, there is a spiritual realm, and God sees.  Do we want to be corrected harshly by Him, because we think we are better then somebody else?  

Remember whom He loves He corrects.  He loves you, but He is a well mannered God, kind and does not resort to being rude. We have to try and do things the way of the Lord.  Being rude, hateful, unapologetic, is not fruit of the spirit, and you need to watch it.  We all do.  

My thoughts anyway…..

JOHN 13:35 BY THIS SHALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. KING JAMES.

TWO REASONS WHY PRAYER MAY NOT BE ANSWERED

Sometimes hope will flee. You have prayed, you don’t understand….

Scripture tells us, if we have iniquity in our hearts God will not hear us. Read King James Psalms 66:18 King James only….

Sometimes, we have to see, what do we embrace, what do we accept, what do we see, as harmless, yet, may be a spiritual entity, that God does not accept. REPENTANCE IS NEEDED.

Then, there is praise, and some people forget, the past, of sins, or the forgiveness they have received. How do your express your gratitude? Do you just go on, or do you give praise, every day of your life, to God as a testimony?

See we have to see…

We overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony. Remember scripture says, do not give place to the enemy. But do you do that, do you give place to the enemy…. by not saying anything, that ushers the praises of God, for you to have a front and center seat at the throne of God?

Hmmmmm. Something for all of us to think about? Please share this.  And sign up for the blog.  You may just help someone get an answer to prayer….  Then God will bless you.

And I will just add. Praises to God my father, with thanks! Even with daily repentance, as I humble myself before you Lord. For the sacrifice of Christ! Thank you Lord, for my salvation….♥

AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:11 KING JAMES ONLY.

I feel led to get to the root of this dilemma, and just call it for what it is. But humbled myself, I need to say it, because God Himself corrected me. So, may my learning, also bring light.

But I do give God glory, and even here publicly, I thank God. I thank God almighty my Lord and savior, Father, Son our Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I thank Him, for who He loves He corrects.

Recently, I have been just having a sense within, how much God hates sin. And I hate it too. I hate what it has done to me, stolen so many of my blessings. Yet little by little, I see, how He restores, and heals, and yes blesses. But it has made me open my eyes! We reap what we sow. Do you remember the people of God, and how their murmuring and complaining, made them wander for 40 years?

I think I have done that too. My sins, separated me from God, and I have been a strong believer for at least 30 years, but I pray, the curses are broken.

So, I write this, and explain, this right away, because today, I got a revelation in correction. “When Christians Accept Secret Sin.” I believe God taught me something this very, morning.

HE WILL SURELY REPROVE YOU, IF YE DO SECRETLY ACCEPT PERSONS. JOB 13:10.

When I read it this morning, in my time of seeking God….It came alive. It shouted to me, I felt a very strong sense of it. I thought about it, and I saw how things are. How we as Christians, do not want to stir the pot sometimes. And I understood it, in its meaning. But for a second there, I thought, I don’t do that do I? Or would I be known as judging?

Just to clarify something, we need to see as Christians, and call it out for what it is. We cannot accept sin, and even in other brothers and sisters, and not warn them. Ezekiel 3:19 and also Ezekiel 33, talks about warning one another. So knowing that, God got very specific with me, and showed me the error of my ways.

YET IF THOU WARN THE WICKED, AND HE TURN NOT FROM HIS WICKEDNESS, NOR FROM HIS WICKED WAY, HE SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY; BUT THOU HAST DELIVERED THY SOUL. Ezekiel 3:19.

Now this scripture is for the righteous, or who thinks they are righteous yet…. who openly sins, or promotes sin. And so who are you, if you see your friend sinning, or even an acquaintance, and you don’t say anything?

WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE; IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT. Ezekiel 33:13.

(Read all of this chapter from a King James Bible.) And if you ever needed a scripture to show Salvation can be lost this is it. Please note it.

There is a lady on FB who is a friend of mine. (Name with held to protect) Now I love this lady, she has always had the sweetest spirit with me, and is kind, encouraging. I have even given her my book, that I wrote. “How to Have Faith.” Information is listed above for purchase.

Anyway, in my book, I have talked often, about getting a good King James Bible, that it is imperative, to us as believers. This is my calling, to talk about it, to help other believers, get on the right path. To get answers in prayer, to get faith, to please God. To see, this is disobedience if we use something that is corrupt. Many of you know my stance on this. I will not waver on it.

Yet, I accepted this in her behavior….from her as sin. For I have never confronted her. I have always seen her sharing scriptures, and they were not King James. Yet…..I was silent. And have not said anything, up until today.

You see, I am always it seems in a battle, with people, over my belief, and what gets me, is that I have even been in battles with other Christians. Who say they are Christians, and they defend, sin. To me, they become a pawn of the devil, when you see some of these battles, that should be clear, in truth, but they are not.

Today, as well, as another example, a woman on social media, was defending, homosexuality, and yet says she is a believer in God. I told her straight out, she was pawn of the enemy, and needed to stop defending this sin. I told her to repent. Because she is going against the word of God. She is contradicting herself, and I told her that is not a good side to be on. God does not lose battles. And we will all will stand before God, and be judged.  

Was it easier to tell her, opposed to my friend.  Because she was a stranger?  I don’t know, all I know is I have to be obedient to God.  

Christ died for our sins. Yes, we love the sinner, but we hate the sin. God loves her as well, but any one of us, reaps what we sow. Like I did, in my early years. Sin hurts us. And just an added thought, but have we no fear of God? There are consequences. And you do not want to be on the wrong side without God…..

Repentance clears the slate.  Obedience keeps the devil away!  Why? because you are submitting to God.

So anyway, my friend, who I love listed a scripture from the Mess bible. (I know, I purposely call it that) And something rose up in me, I know it was the Holy spirit, and the Lord told me, tell her, tell your friend and warn her. So I did. I wrote her, and privately messaged her, and told her I loved her, but why was she using a Bible that was corrupt? I asked her if she did not read my book? Or the many posts I share on this subject? She has not answered yet. But I pray, she sees the error of this.

So I ask all of you….do you accept sin in other people? Do you not have the unction to say something to warn them? But perhaps like me, you do not want to get into a debate or an argument. And especially with someone you love. It could be with a friend, or even a family member. We know its wrong. We know this sin, or something our friend, does goes against Gods word, but do we accept it? Not wanting to fight. Not wanting to be that guy or gal? So we stay silent….

You see, I have learned this of myself. If we accept sin, in ourselves, it is easy to accept sin in others. Yes, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God. No doubt about it. And judging, we know thats wrong. But we are called to judge righteously. And we are called to warn each other. Don’t ever lose sight of that. This is a spiritual battle. We have to help one another.

And I think even now, in the times we are in. You may even see it as well. There are so many….Wolves in sheeps clothing. Defending the wrong. I have seen so much of it. Just when you are trying to be comforting, to someone with Gods truth, and liars, come out, and they say they are Christians, yet defend the devil and his lies. You need to see this, if you are on the wrong side.

Now I am not saying my friend is going to go that far, but if any of us are deceived, we can easily become a pawn of the enemy. This is why I write this to convict you. Because I got convicted….

To help you see, yes we are all short of the glory of God. But we can become true soldiers of the Lord. We can speak truth. We can, and we should warn one another. Times are calling for it.

So today, God corrected me. Today, God gave me utterance. Today, God used me effectively. And I see it. Like I said, I hate sin, and what it did to me. I hate, how my life has not prospered in some ways. I hate always missing out on some things, because I did not do the right thing. I tell you this with tears in my eyes. Don’t let sin, hinder you! I tell you because Jesus loves you. Yes He loves me too. But I blew it years ago….I don’t ever know if I will fully recover but I messed up royally….

We may not want to offend anybody, or anyone. But if we do not tell people the truth, the King James truth, we are not honoring God. We are not true Christians. We are not serving one another in love. This one scripture made me see the error of my ways. What do you see? Do you accept sin, and just say oh well, live and live?

Or do you say, friend, let me tell you what the word of God says from my King James bible. Please repent. Please see this. I want you to be in heaven when we all stand before God.

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5

I had to make this title strong, so perhaps someone can see this to understand.  New Years resolutions will not work without bringing it to the obedience of Christ.  

So many people make New Year resolutions, but they fail. Because they do not bring it to Christ.

It begins with a thought.  It begins with the imagination.  What you see, or think becomes you.  For as He thinketh in his heart, so is he….Proverbs 23:7.

 What are you thinking?  What are you putting your energy and attention to?  So you need to choose wisely, or you may think or imagine something that is not good, right, or of God. Let alone healthy for you or others.  You cannot let your own mind ponder on that thing that is not right in the sight of God, you must see it as God does, and then obey Him.  

As the first scripture above tells us.  This is why many resolutions do not work on their own, because unless Gods spirit is present, one may be trying to do it on their own, and that may not always prove to be effective.  

I am older now, I am a lot wiser, and the wisdom I share in this, is all to the glory of God, and none else.  Because anything we try to do, in the natural on our own, will not have the same affect as to giving it to God in obedience.

I have experience in this.  I understand, how we can make choices, and do things that are not healthy for us, spiritually and yes physically.  I have done things in my own life, that were lifestyle choices, that hurt me.  Choices, that controlled me for lack of a better word.  Like smoking,  getting high.  Letting the wrong people into my life.  Choices.

And it is always a choice.  I am not going to try and force you to believe me.  This is a choice.  In fact, I follow Christ in this example.  He is a gentleman.  He does not force us.  This is not His way.  He gives us His holy word, an anointed, holy not corrupted word, and that is my King James Bible. And in that Holy word, He tells us who He is, and what He expects.  But it is a choice.  It is even a choice, what Bible one uses.  But experience, and research has shown me this truth.  

And those that reject Him reap the consequences.  And those that find Him, find life eternal.  Not only is there the promise for life after we die, but life now on earth, can change, to a life, that He intended, if we just seek Him.  A life fulfilled.  A life complete, with joy, and peace, and a sense of who He is.  In all aspects, and that nothing is impossible with God.  

But those that reject who He is, do reap, what the devil intended.  And sadly, they do not know when they reject Christ, they are rejecting the only chance to make a “wrong right.”  They look at it intellectually, and not spiritually.  

This is why Christ came for us.  To pay the penalty of our sins.  To stop the works of the enemy.  To give us a new chance.  Yes in our resolutions.  In all aspects of life.  We can live abundantly.  But we have to begin by seeing we are sinners, and repent, and make the choice to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  We have to see, we must not give place to the enemy, but we must submit to God.  This is also scriptural.  

I was blind spiritually at one time.  This is where I started with my own self-destructive ways, that were controlling me.  And anything can control you if you let it.  From eating, to smoking, getting high, sexual active etc.  This is the way of the world.  

And the world, if you see does not offer a way to control these things, effectively.  Nor does it condemn immorality. If anything, it promotes these things.  You see it on television, in movies and yes even acceptance, of things that are perverted.  More and more, the world, has adapted these life style choices, ideologies, and ways of thinking, that go against God.  And they call that normal.  

But God is not mocked, and we do reap what we sow.  Galatians 6:7.  And there is no peace saith my God to the wicked.  Isaiah 57:21.  And I see so many people rejecting God, and choosing lifestyles, that are against who God is.  If you reject God it is your choice, and you have no one to blame but yourself.  

No, if you really want a change, and you want to make it work for you.  You do have to give it all to God.  You have to obey God, you have to take His commandments to heart, His ways, His principles, to heart, and you have to want to live a clean good life.  

And let us get one thing straight.  Just because you gave your heart, to Christ one time does not mean, that its a done, deal.  No, you have to want to grow.  And many people do not grow, because they think they are fine, the way they are.  

You have to work out your Salvation, in fear of God, and with trembling.  This is also scriptural.  Look up these words in a King James Bible.  This is the scripture reference.  Philippians 2:12

Treating your salvation as precious.  Something to honor, and protect.  Because you do not want to be deceived by the devil.  Nor lose your salvation, by having your name “blotted” out of the lambs book of life.  

And maybe to some extent you are a good person.  But, by denying who Christ is, in your own life, or just living day to day, is not living, that is barely existing, when you could thrive.  

No true living is when you search for God daily, with all your being.  Recognizing the devil, comes to kill, steal and destroy, so you watch your own self.  Christ told us this difference, but Christ came to give us life abundantly. Read again John 10:10, as the reference KJV.

You choose Christ’s ways.  Repenting, daily, is something I believe in.  It cleanses the soul, and gets you on the right path.  

And you disciple yourself.  Which is derived from “disciplining” yourself in Christ.  When you love the Lord, truly Love Him, you know your body is the temple of the living God.  So no, you do not want to hurt that temple, or others, and whatever you are doing that is making you “self-destruct” you take to the obedience of Christ.  You obey the command ment first to love God with all your heart, and then your neighbor as yourself.  

You stop the whining, the complaining, and the pity party, that does not do you or anybody else any good, and you take it to the obedience of Christ.  You change.  There are so many pitfalls, we can fall into, if we do not see the signs.  We walk down the road of life.  And we do not always see what is up ahead.  But if you walk with Christ, He does give you signs, and those signs may say, don’t walk that path.  

I saw those signs myself in my life.  I made some terrible choices, that were not only sin, in Gods eyes, but they were causing me to go down a road of destruction.  I had to stop.  I had to repent.  I had to recognize the son of God, who came to set me free.  

And when I did, I began the most beautiful relationship I have ever had.  No one can take the place of who Christ is to me.  I will never, ever go back to those ways, those habits, because I would lose this relationship. Christ is the great Shepherd.  He will guide you, He does me.   

This is why, when I talk to people, and they get it confused with religion, I explain the difference.  Rules, traditions, rituals, made by men, and groups, will never, ever get the results that I can have with Christ.  In relationship.  They cannot.  In fact, religion from the choice, I told you, is imposing, rude, and harsh.  

They are not gracious, compassionate, or understanding, as to what Christ can do.  So when I have a problem I go to God, and if you need to talk to someone, yes talk to someone, but talk to someone who understands the ways of God, for counsel.   

I know from the word of God, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Paraphrasing Phillipians 4:13.  I can.  

I don’t give up, even where I am now, in my older years.  Every day, I reach for the goal of who I can be in Christ.  And some things do take time.  

But its not up for debate.  I know that knowing Christ has changed my life.  My choices.  And even now, I have a private resolution, I bring to the obedience of Christ, because I want to grow, and be the best I can be in Him.  For next year….

So if you are really serious, about making a resolution, and making it work.  Take it to the obedience of Christ my friend.  Don’t compromise who you are.  Don’t doubt that you can do it.  Don’t be afraid, that it is too late.  It’s never too late, when we open our eyes, and give it totally to the obedience of Christ.  Speak it, there is power in your words, speak who you are in Christ.  Faith pleases God.  

Yes we do reap what we sow.  This is a principle, that the world calls karma.  But don’t look at it that way.  Don’t look at it as the world sees it.  Look at it the way Christ can to make the corrections for you.  Yes, He corrects those He loves.  Let Him correct you.  Give it to Christ.  

Let Him turn those consequences, into faith, into hope, that 2015 can be a new year for you, with a difference.  Plead the blood of Jesus, and know Christ came to set you free, and yes free indeed.  

You can do it.  You can meet your goal.  I want to inspire you, to see yourself and who you can be in Christ.  Healed.  Is that a goal?  That can be physically or spiritually.  Well by His stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  

You can be stronger, wiser, and more at peace, if you just take it to the obedience of Christ.  He will show you the way.  He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  He will make a way.  To meet your resolutions my friend.  Have hope, don’t give up.  

In the miracle of who Christ is.  This is why we have the Christmas spirit. A gift in the “presence” of our Lord, and savior.  This is a present.  This thought of taking it to the obedience of Christ.  Can meet that new year resolution.  This new year can be yours, in Christ.  

Happy New Year, with blessings and love,

Maybe your hurting today. Maybe you have lost hope, and it is difficult to cope. Maybe poverty is preventing you from doing all that you would like to, but yet you see, God almighty is providing, and you have food, and a roof over your head. Maybe friends, have abandoned you. Maybe you are ill.

Sometimes, we do struggle, and we can be lonely, sad, and broken hearted, for different reasons. But I want to encourage you today. I want you to know there is a God, and He loves you.

And you know, I cannot say this for everyone. But He has taught me things through my lack, through my sadness, my own personal sorrows. My own illnesses. And that is to seek Him, and I do with all my heart soul, and mind. I almost feel like He has tested me. As He has allowed certain things in my life.

For I see, and I have to give my husband credit for this. But sometimes, we are trying, and trying to do good, and we are looking at it for the wrong reasons. And when we stop, and say, I better be careful, and I better not let this fester in me, and take root, because it is so negative, and destructive, we can get right with Christ.

For me you see, lately, it has been a battle. It has been a challenge. It has been a struggle. Many Christians, brothers and sisters, have actually abandoned me, or fought me. Some have unfriended me, some that I loved dearly, but they did not see me with love. They do not see me as their own sister in Christ. Yet I am. Many have stopped listening to me. Many have actually challenged me as well. They do not see it the way I do….

Well this is my thought through it all, and it is an early Christmas present. That God has given me, because it gives me hope, in who I am in Christ, and what I do.

No matter in what state I am, I have learned to be content. And when I am not, I know how to take it to the obedience of Christ. To get back on track.

But I am not here for the righteous, or those who do not believe.  I am here to bring truth to the hurting, the broken, and yes the sinner. I am here to feed His lambs.

With His truth, my King James Bible. And it just has brought a joy to me, right now, because I am not doing it for money. I am not doing it for popularity, I am not doing it for those who know truth. Or those that are “self-righteous.”

I am doing it, for those Christ has sent me to….To give them hope. And those who do not know truth. To maybe even warn them. To seek God, to be humble, to repent. Because sin will separate us from God. Whether you are a Christian or not. The wages of sin is death.

I just sense, if we stop, and realize what we are doing, and can let it go, and direct it to God, we can have hope again. We can make a difference. After all, Christ said, he was not here for the righteous, but for the sinner. And we all sin, yes, and come short of the glory of God.

But I realize my messages are not for everyone, but God will guide. And I hope it is for the hurting today. Just release it to God, give Him your cares, and worries, and don’t let it fester in your heart, to take away your joy, or hope.

Redirect what you are feeling, and doing, and let Christ give you the answer.  The answer may just be in the way you are looking at it.

There is a God, and He is mighty in power, and can make a difference. This is the whole beautiful spirit and message of Christmas.

That Christ came for each one of us, to save us. Because He loves us. Merry Christmas.

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

I believe, we are in end times.  I really do.  I believe, Christ could return at any time.  No one knows for sure.  In fact Christ told us, only God the father knows that time, and date.  But prophecy is being revealed more, and more.

I believe, by the prompting of the Holy Spirit, God wants you to pray for discernment.  I know I am, more then ever.  Times are demanding it.  Things are changing in the spirit realm, and even in the world we live in. No more sloppy agape, no more, spoon food junk food, and no more laziness for lack of a better word.

I am concerned for the body of Christ.  I am concerned for well-meaning Christians, but they lack discernment, or even understanding of Gods truth.

This could be contributed by a lot of things, maybe they are not using a good King James Bible.  One that has been corrupted by publishers.  Word that has been changed, added, or deleted, and they may be believing the lie of that word, for it is no longer whole, or holy, or anointed.  Changed.  Part of the enemies plan to deceive.  For we are warned, in Revelation 22:18-19 not to do that!  Read it yourself from a King James Bible.  But know this scripture…..but not if it is changed…..

FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK, AND POWERFUL, AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWOEDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF THE JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART.  HEBREWS 4:12.  

Maybe they have been taught bad doctrine, maybe they don’t even open up any kind of Bible, but I am seeing a lot of Christians, who just are not seeing the “signals” or know the difference between good and evil.

Things are fuzzy to them.  And more then ever, I am seeing Christians, do not know, and are not being taught the fear of God.  The fear of God, keeps us out of trouble, spiritually, and yes even physically.  Because when we understand the fear of God, and we know in our spirits, we will depart from evil.  GOD SHALL HEAR, AND AFFLICT THEM, EVEN HE THAT ABIDETH OF OLD.  SELAH.  BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO CHANGES, THEREFORE THEY FEAR NOT GOD.  PSALM 55:19

I see many Christians, many well meaning Christians, distorting the word of God.  Twisting it, and trying to change it, to fit an ideology that goes totally against God.  I see Christians, defending, and actually believing things that are on the wrong side, so to speak.  They are passionate, and pull up swords to even fight other sisters and brothers in Christ.  To defend these lies.  But their swords are rubber swords.

Yes, I believe we are in end times, and we see prominent pastors, who are leading the sheep to destruction.  Things that do not bless the soul.  The prosperity message, has taken so many down the wrong road, just to have someone lead this kind of message, is not a message of Salvation, and truth, but of lies, and greed.  We cannot have true prosperity if our souls, are headed for hell.  THEN SHALL YE RETURN, AND DISCERN BETWEEN THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED, BETWEEN HIM THAT SERVETH GOD AND HIM THAT SERVETH HIM NOT.  MALACHI 3:18.

I see, people who again, do not have fear of God, to know their salvation could be lost.  And they actually say, their sin is covered, from the past, the future into the present.  With no sense of repentance, or humbleness to be careful not to offend God.  Knowing from scripture, one can be “blotted” out of the Lambs book of life.  That is a key word.  Do your own research from a King James.  Read Ezekiel 33, where God speaks and tells us, that our righteousness, can be forgotten, if we sin.  The wages of sin is death.  Yes Christ came to give life, but if we break the covenant, its like insurance, it is null and void!  God does not lie, but people do.  They are the ones who break the covenant but God lets them.  It is a choice!!! And many are choosing wrong.

Picking and choosing only some scripture is dangerous to the soul……

I see people, following leaders again, to unite them in one religion.  They don’t see, that doctrine does not match.  They don’t see the deception of what is not said, by some of these leaders, because they don’t know Gods truth.  But this is what should be taught….AND THEY SHALL TEACH MY PEOPLE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HOLY AND PROFANE AND CAUSE THEM TO DISCERN BETWEEN THE UNCLEAN AND THE CLEAN.  EZEKIEL 44:23.  

We are in some strange times to say the least.

Love, is not evident with many.  I have seen so many pharisee spirits, that with the law, will hit you on the head.  Mercy, and compassion, and an extension of love, is not evident with many people.  Hearts are hard.  Ears are closed, mouths are silent.  Eyes turn the other way, because they don’t want to judge.  We are called to try the spirits.

People are not listening to God, and they are believing a lie.  I am concerned, I am aware, of how the enemy deceives people, and they are listening to this lie.  At this time, many Christians should be light, but instead their light, has switched back to darkness.  Christ is the light of the world.  Many yes, are so hungry for Christ, but they do not see, that He came to fulfill the law, not abolish it.  They do not see, how precious salvation is.  For the life Christ gave, for us, was of great pain, and sorrow, to take the penalty of our sins.  FOR HE THAT EATETH AND DRINKETH UNWORTHILY, EATETH AND DRINKETH DAMNATION TO HIMSELF, NOT DISCERNING THE LORDS BODY.  I Corinthians 11:29.  

There is such a rise against freedom of expression in who Christ is, and Christianity, and yet, others are accepting, and believing the lies of religions, that are not of love.  Yet some of them say, they come in the name of the Lord.  BUT THE NATURAL MAN RECEIVETH NOT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD:  FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM:  NEITHER CAN HE KNOW THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED.  I CORINTHIANS 2:14.  

But they are not of truth, not of just one God, and the God, of Abraham, Jacob and Issac.  The God who created the heaven and earth.  The God who is not mocked.  The God, who can send a soul to hell.  The God who is able to make miracles, and nothing is impossible with the true Holy God.  But He has His demands.  He has His way, and His way, is not always ours!  We need to know what He says, and expects, and yes in fear of God.  Each one of us!  Open your eyes!  Your own Salvation could be lost if you do not heed His truth!

I ask you to pray for discernment.  I ask you to bow before God, humble, and repent, if you have perhaps missed it.  Repenting daily, keeps the soul clean.  It is good, to come before God, and even if you think you are right, ask God for discernment.  True wisdom.  I really believe we need it more then ever.  Times are calling for it.  Souls, can be lost.  We never want Christ to tell us, I knew you not.  Please pray, for discernment.

And pray for others too.  I could use some prayers myself.  I am not perfect, far from it.  I make mistakes. But I know how to repent, and I know how to ask others to forgive me.  I will not hold onto pride, and lose any discernment.  I value my discernment.  But I do with the fear of God, and with every bit of my being.  I will take it to the obedience of Christ.  I will not compromise who I am in Christ.  I am more adamant then ever.  Because I know God the father.  I love Him, and thank Him, and praise Him, but I try to do in His way, not mine.  I thank Christ, for my salvation.  For His great gift, that took my name off of the register of hell.  And I thank His Holy Spirit, that prompts me at a moments notice.  And I listen, with discernment!

And I pray you do as well.

GIVE THEREFORE THY SERVANT AN UNDERSTANDING HEART TO JUDGE THY PEOPLE, THAT I MAY DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD:  FOR WHO IS ABLE TO JUDGE THIS THY SO GREAT A PEOPLE?  I KINGS 3:9.

AND THE SPEECH PLEASED THE LORD, THAT SOLOMON HAD ASKED THIS THING.  AND GOD SAID UNTO HIM, BECAUSE THOU HAST ASKED THIS THING, AND HAST NOT ASKED FOR THYSELF LONG LIFE; NEITHER HAST ASKED RICHES FOR THYSELF, NOR HAST ASKED THE LIFE OF THINE ENEMIES; BUT HAST ASKED FOR THYSELF UNDERSTANDING TO DISCERN JUDGEMENT; BEHOLD I HAVE DONE ACCORDING TO THY WORDS; LO, I HAVE GIVEN THEE A WISE AND AN UNDERSTANDING HEART; SO THAT THERE WAS NONE LIKE THEE BEFORE THEE, NEITHER AFTER THEE SHALL ANY ARISE LIKE UNTO THEE.  I KING 3:10-12

With love, in Christ, and Christ only… Elena Ramirez
