GOD IS HEALING YOUR WOUNDS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4086.jpeg

FOR I WILL RESTORE HEALTH UNTO THEE, AND I WILL HEAL THEE OF THY WOUNDS, SAITH THE LORD, BECAUSE THEY CALLED THEE AN OUTCAST, SAYING THIS IS ZION, WHOM NO MAN SEEKETH AFTER.  JEREMIAH 30:17  KJV.  

What a beautiful promise, from God. Thank you Lord, I sure feel like I can relate to this.  So I will receive that.  

Spiritual wounds, emotional wounds, we can get them.  We can even get them after we have been saved.  By our Lord, Jesus.  But He is not the one who wounds us. 

Wounds from people, family, friends.  

These wounds sometimes, do not manifest themselves right away, but something can trigger a wound, to be exposed, and the bleeding starts all over again.

I have dealt with emotional wounds, myself, and I have had some wounds open up again.  Where, I just seem to really be my own worse enemy.  

WOE IS ME FOR MY HURT! MY WOUND IS GRIEVIOUS; BUT I SAID TRULY THIS IS A GRIEF, AND I  MUST BEAR IT.  JEREMIAH 10:19  KJV.  

It sometimes is a  learned behavior sometimes, and well, we really do have to look at our Lord, for guidance in these matters.  We have to see, what we are doing.

For me, I am a warrior.  In a lot of ways, but I have to be so careful about that, because it is not healthy always to be in that mode.  Things sometimes have triggered that in me, and many friends, or people do not understand that, so they keep their distance, and yet I sure could use a good friend now and then.  

But at this point, lately friends seem to elude me.  I have lost a lot of friends lately, who do not want anything to do with me.  I don’t blame them.  I respect people, in the sense, that I don’t chase them either.   But that has wounded me.  

ALL MY INWARD FRIENDS ABHORRED ME: AND THEY WHOM I LOVED ARE TURNED AGAINST ME.  JOB 19:19  KJV

See, I try to offer grace with their own wounds.  But when grace is not extended to me, I can let go.  Yet, I have to study myself, and I have to see, where I have gone wrong.  And I know sometimes, I can see, that I am not flexible.  I have made mistakes in friendship. Being too blunt. And yes being blunt can hurt others.  Though, that was not my intention.  So I repent. But when you believe in something, like I do in God, I cannot compromise that.  So, it makes me lose friends.  

TO HIM THAT IS AFFLICTED PITY SHOULD BE SHEWED FROM HIS FRIEND; BUT HE FORSAKETH THE FEAR OF THE ALMIGHTY.  JOB 6:14  KJV

So, I rely on God, He is my greatest friend.  In fear of God.  But I do pray for these friends, who have seemed to have walked away from me.  

AND THE LORD TURNED THE CAPTIVITY OF JOB, WHEN HE PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS:  ALSO THE LORD GAVE JOB TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE.  JOB 42:10  KJV. 

I have learned, sometimes God will use people, to help us, heal our wounds.  But sometimes, its best, to keep your distance as well from toxic people, or people, who do not understand, you’re calling, you, or your own wounds.  

When I was younger, and I had walked away from God, those were the toughest years of my life, because I did not have God in my life.  People don’t understand, when they choose to eliminate God from their life, they are actually choosing, to let the enemy in.  His goal, is to kill, steal, and destroy.   He wants to wound you.  He wants to stop the plan God has in your life.  He wants to distract you.  

We have to see, God did not intend that to be.  He intended for us, to rely on Him, to have a life abundantly, we must do things His way.  His ways, are not meant to control us, or for him to fence us in.  But when you seek Him, in obedience, it does go well.  He gives us a choice.  He is a gentleman, He does not make us do anything.  But you have to choose Him.  

I just want to encourage you to seek God.  Truly seek Him.  Stop, look at what you are doing to yourself.  Don’t let old habits in. I am writing this for myself as well today.

I feel wounded lately.   As an American, a Patriot, I have felt the need to fight. There are things going on in our nation right now with this wall, that is causing me to fight.  To fight for our country, for truth, for hypocrisy, to go away, and yet, I have to pray more.  I hate seeing people be so mean.  To our President, to others, and I hate seeing division.  So I have been fighting.  My goodness, though, it seems to bring out the worse in me lately. 

My wounds, my own personal struggles, seem to be getting in the way, and I realize only God can take care of myself, and our country.

When I realized, I needed God a few years back.  I cried out to Him.  He came to me.  I sensed, the Lord, binding my feet, putting me on His shoulder.  So I could get to know Him.  To hear His voice. I sensed Him, taking salve, and putting  it on my wounds.  Cleaning the wounds.  

Now this is something I want you to take to heart.  But He reminded me, that my problems happened, because I had walked away.  Not because He left me.  It was as if, He was teaching me the lesson, to never do that again.  And I will not.  We are like little lambs, we can wander off, but I realize for me, I will never and can never leave His side.

There is an enemy.  Who wants to distract you.  To take your eyes off of Jesus.  To look at your wounds.  Instead of God.  Then you could have a pity party, and that’s not healthy, or good for you.  Because you will be in that party all by yourself.  

We may not always understand.  But we have to do our part in obeying God.  Seeking Him.  Departing from things, people, that may not always have that sense of who God is, and let not their toxicity get in you.  Especially in those wounds that are open.  See the enemy will use people, even people you love.  

It becomes a wound.  If you are not aware of it.  I sense this for me, anyway.  

I must stay close to my Lord.  And maybe someday, like even today, I can let the Lord heal my wounds, and I can stay close to Him, and really see myself bear fruit for Him, in love as well.  

I just want to encourage you.  I know, Gods ways are not our ways.  And sometimes, we say and think, if God loved me, why do I go through these things?  

Because friend, in these times, we are tested, we can also grow, we can also change to understand, why and who He is, and sometimes, if we are not “wounded” we cannot become who we are meant to be by Him.  He prunes us.  He corrects us. Whom He loves, He corrects.  He loves me.  But sometimes it hurts.  

He loves you too.  

God bless you, I pray your wounds, are healed.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

WHY DO WOMEN HATE? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2752.jpg

Why do women hate?  Why do they hate men?  Why do they hate other women?  Why?

Recently, with the controversy about Kavanaugh, I saw and still see so much hate from women.

I see women, make one man, the poster boy for hate.  An object of hate.

I saw them saying things like “believe the victim”.  And you know, I do believe the victim.

But I don’t believe in making anybody an object of hate. In being an accuser.  Or lying.

Or pouring my hurt into someone else, by destroying their character or reputation.  We saw that.  

I see women knocking other women, yet complaining if they are attacked in the same way.  I see women, being very jealous, catty, never seeing the good in other women.  

I saw that when I worked in the business world.  Men were nice, but women, were very competitive mean, and hard to get a long with.  

I have seen that as well from just women in ministry, in the church, and maybe thats why I only consider a couple of women friends, because they don’t play that game.  Or at least not displaying it.  

I grew up, seeing hate.  From my own mama.  I could not understand it.  But I kind of do understand it now.  And God bless my mama, but she was also a victim.   The sad thing is she never did overcome it.  And I vowed to not be that way.  To me that is a curse.  I don’t want curses in my life.  

So I have sought the Lord in all matters including that.  I am not a victim, but I am victorious in Christ, and I will share more later in this.  About that. 

See, growing up, I was also a victim, of different things, and I won’t go into details.  So I could have hated.  But sometimes I see, just how dumb I was.  How trusting I was.  How naive I was.  How desperate I was.  I don’t like saying that, but I did not have any outlets.  

Since, my mother was a hater, yet loved me, she tried to control me.  I did not do well with that.  I rebelled. And instead of finding my way, I made myself vulnerable to wolves.  Men.  Evil men.  Or men, boys, who could not even figure things out for themselves.

Yes, I could have hated men.  I could have even hated my mother. But I did not.   Life has not been easy for me, in many ways.  Even with having successes.  But I don’t hate.  I don’t even hate myself.  And I can easily say here, many times, I was my worse enemy.  But I don’t hate myself.  

I could probably write a book about this, and why women hate.  But I have also learned, people are not running to go and buy my books.  That I have poured my heart into.  Already….And thats o.k.  I have accepted my situation.  If God changes that, well thats different.  

But I have known some women in the literary world.  Who have connections in publishing.  Or even ministries.  And they won’t lift one finger to help me.   Even women, that say I minister to them, they won’t even share my posts.  And some called me friend.  Yeah right.  Sorry if I sound bitter, but its true, women have not been my friend, in Christ, or a help.

And my motivation has changed sometime ago.  I am not writing for money.  I am not writing for my glory.  I am writing for the glory of God, and you cannot put a price on that.  

Yet I see how valuable any wisdom is.  And if I can impart something even here, in a small blog post, for a woman, then maybe she can be set free.  To be a wise woman.  Especially a young woman, looking to find her way.  

Let me tell you when my life really changed.  When I stopped and I saw, that yes I believed in God.  But when I decided to do things His way, in holiness, and not walk the fence between the world and God, I found my way.  By repentance.  By seeking Holy King James word.  By prayer.  By seeing the traps the devil tried to put in front of me, with temptation.  Even from other men, after I was married.  And I saw, I had to run from sin.

Sin will destroy you, blind you.  Even in the name of love.  Thats why I guess some women hate men, because perhaps a man they loved, burned them.  Burned them bad.  And they loved that man.  

But what I have learned, is that if a man truly loves you.  He will honor you.  He will wait till marriage.  Women, don’t understand that all is not fair in love and war.  If you give yourself to a man, he will take what he wants.  

Then, what women think and don’t know, they have given the most important part of themselves to the man, and even if he loves you, he looks at you differently, you are no longer a challenge.  He will even think about you doing what you did with him, with other men.  What a turn off.  He defeated you, he disarmed you by taking your sexuality.  He may even begin to hate you.  

I learned that from different men.  

But holiness, in Christ, is your greatest weapon, and will not cause you to hate.  For, what I learned from God, is to honor myself, and to repent of sin.  I learned, to submit to God.  I learned that a good woman, does not hate.  She does not blame others.  For her own mistakes.  She picks herself up, takes a bath, and cleanses herself by repenting seeking God, and loving Gods way.

Which is holy.

Long story short, I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years.  We waited till after marriage. To consume our marriage.  We did not take what we were not supposed to.   We honored God in this.  I told my husband before we got married, I wanted to do things Gods way.  He listened, he agreed.  I know that I know that is my “secret” to true love, and living happily ever after. 

I watched myself, did not fall into traps, and well, we have a fruitful marriage in Christ.  I don’t blame my past on anybody, and I don’t hate anybody even now.

Hate is ugly.  I don’t hate women.   And yes there are always more lovelier, more successful then me, even in the body of Christ, but thats o.k.  I take what God has taught me, I try to share it and I try to share it in love.

Some can take it or leave it.  I don’t really care.  To get angry or hateful, or mean about it. Just hurts yourself.  And I am not into afflicting myself. Or nobody else.  For that matter. It will stop the plans God has for you.  

I just learned, probably the hard way.  Love never fails.  And you don’t want that poison of hate in your soul.  

Be careful with these movements, that want to make men equals.  

Don’t forget God did create Adam before Eve.  Don’t forget, that she was the one that caused Adam to sin, by listening to the devil.  Don’t forget, that you don’t listen to the devil.  Listen to what God says.  Obey Him, obey God, I tell you, it will steer your life in the right direction. 

Hope this helps some body.  

Blessings, in Christ,

ITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0034.jpgITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Iron sharpens iron, as the scripture says:  

IRON SHARPENETH IRON; SO A MAN SHARPENETH THE COUNTENANCE OF HIS FRIEND.  PROVERBS 27:17  KJV.

What does that mean? It means that we sharpen each other, as brothers and sisters, friends, in Christ,  with Gods Holy King James word.  By sharing it, by encouraging each other.  With love, By bringing light into darkness, to illuminate truth, Gods Holy truth.  To show others truth, to get them away from hells fire.  To show them, Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  

So you use it to fight the enemy, and you are victorious.  

You see the word of God, is a sword.  And it will cut.  It will stop the devil in His tracks.  

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  KJV.  

It needs to be sharp, to be effective.  I am here even now trying to sharpen iron.  

It is actually very sad, and pathetic, to see the body of Christ in the state its in now.  Because I see a lot of sloppy agape.  A lot of judgment, a lot of Christians, who have embraced the prosperity message, and when they need a word, they do not have it.  

And if the words they do find, somehow or another, find a way to communicate the words are not holy word!  They are corrupt word. They are counterfeit word, because the word has been tampered with, and they disobeyed God in this.  

The KJV is holy, and has withstood time, (over four hundred years) and is stored in heaven and earth.  

BUT THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WHICH ARE NOW, BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN.  II PETER 3:7  KJV.  

When a Christian uses the KJV they are on the same page, with God almighty Himself.  There are many scriptures that tell us, to not mess with His word.  

And He says do not change it, add to it, or delete it.  And so when a Christian uses those corrupt versions, which I call a per-version, it is deceptive.  But God does not change in these matters.   Because He looks at those who do as liars.  

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.  PROVERBS 30:5-6.   KJV.  

And maybe I can sharpen someone, to see, how important knowing Gods true, King James word is.  For it is anointed.  It is powerful, it is holy.  

And in these times that we are in, I see how, the enemy has deceived so many.  By not knowing King James word, by not using King James word, by not sharing word.  

The body of Christ is dull right now, sadly.  And pathetically.  And the enemy rejoices.  

Have you ever tried to have an intelligent conversation, or a healthy debate with someone, concerning what God says, and they try to articulate what they think or feel, but they do not even have the scriptures to back it up?

Now I am not going to brag or puff myself up, but I know my sword of truth.  I know what God says in many instances.  And people are so deceived, because they believe the lies.  

They follow the blind, because they are blind.  They do not obey God, in these matters.  They don’t know truth, so they put others on a pedestal, and are misled.  

And one thing they are misled in is in the fear of God.  The body of Christ is not taught that, and because of that, they err.  

I fear God.  Because there are consequences.  

THEN SHALT THOU UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.  PROVERBS 2:5.  KJV.

All I know, is when the light is not on, we are not shining for Christ.  We are not to hide our light under a bushel.  

NO MAN WHEN HE HATH LIGHTED A CANDLE, PUTTETH IT IN A SECRET PLACE, NEITHER UNDER A BUSHEL, BUT ON A CANDLESTICK, THAT THEY WHICH COME IN MAY SEE THE LIGHT.  LUKE 11:33 KJV.  

But have you asked yourself….  Maybe you don’t shine your light, because you don’t know KJV word?  And only you can answer that.  But maybe you need to get your self in gear, as a disciple of Christ, and learn it.  By discipling yourself. 

In fear of Him, to tell others the truth of the gospel.  For, its not even that people are hiding their light for Christ.  But maybe….Its because there is no true light in them.  Or maybe because the word they are studying is not true word.  And….They don’t know the true word, and they cannot shine for Christ.  And thats exactly what the devil wants.  

Shame on any of us, who do not shine for Christ!  Shame!

TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY:  IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  Isaiah 8:20  KJV.  

It says according to this word, not any word that has been changed.  Its very sad, and pathetic.  That many do not see the deceptions.  

That many do not sharpen their own swords.  That many are silent.  Now I understand why they are, because they do not know Gods word, and its exactly again, what the enemy wants.  

I could go on, and on here, about it, but you know my writings, you know I promote the King James.  And you know, I share word.  King James word. 

Recently, I had a conversation with someone, I love dearly, and I still do, but this person, who I esteemed highly, so wanted to challenge me, argue with me, debate me about word, but yet could not even voice it, or articulate it, because she had no true light in her.  

So, what did she do?  She tried to turn it around, and mock my walk with the Lord.  At least “I try,” I told her.  No, I am not the perfect Christian, but I will try for Christ, and what He did on that cross for me.  No, I won’t sit idle, and lazy, and not praise God, and give the enemy a place.  No I will use what God has given me, and at least TRY!

I will not be cowardly, not when I have the greatest weapon, my sword of truth, and I need to sharpen myself in these matters.  But I will try!  

For some day, I will stand before God, and I want and long to hear, well done, good, and faithful servant.  

To not try, is to not care, and I will not be counted with the goats.  Even now Christ is separating the goats from the sheep.  

AND BEFORE HIM SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS:  AND HE SHALL SEPARATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDETH HIS SHEEP FROM THE GOATS:  MATTHEW 25:32.  KJV.  

I submit to God, totally, I resist the devil and he must flee, but what has taught me that, IS the fear of God, that I have learned from my King James.  

The world mocks us, they call us “Bible Thumpers” and I get righteously indignant, when I see them do that, and yes, I will fight with Truth.  With my sword, of truth.

Because this is how we know our God!  This is how we learn what He accepts and does not accept.  This is how we get discernment to know right from wrong, good and evil. And for us not to use this tool that God gives us, is just down right ignorant and stupid,  to mock it, or ignore it.  

Sorry if that offends, ANYBODY, but its true, we are in a sad state as the body of Christ. 

There are so many Christians, who could make a difference for the Kingdom of God, and they do not shine their lights, and they do not know word, and they let the enemy win.  

Its sad, I have no other words, that can even distinguish it, because it is pathetic.  

What does God see? All I know, is never stop learning, never stop sharing Gods word, and never take that sword of truth for granted.  

I implore you my brothers and sisters in Christ, learn the word!  Keep studying daily.  Write it, and share it, and sharpen your own sword.  For iron, sharpens iron.  

I love you in Christ, but I love my Lord more, and I, as His ambassador in Christ, implore you, to keep growing.  In holy King James word.  

NOW THEN WE ARE AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST, AS THOUGH GOD DID BESEECH YOU BY US, WE PRAY YOU IN CHRIST’S STEAD, BE YE RECONCILED TO GOD.  II CORINTHIANS 5:20  KJV.   

You are on the vine, stay connected to Christ.  If not, your branch will be thrown into the fire.  

IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, AND IS WITHERED; AND MEN GATHER THEM, AND CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED.  JOHN 15:6.  KJV. 

Don’t think your salvation is in tact, if you have no light, and you do not abide in Christ.  Look at this scripture, among others, I am called to warn, you are called to warn, (read Ezekiel 33) but if you have no true word, you cannot tell them they will be cast into the fire.  

If ever another scripture was meant to tell us, our salvation can be taken away from the book of life, this one tells us, we could be cast into the fire, and burned.  You wither away, by not having true word.

You cannot portray the fruits of the spirit, if you are not obedient to God in this and other matters.  

WHAT FRUIT HAD YE THEN IN THOSE THINGS WHEREOF YE ARE NOW ASHAMED?  FOR THE END OF THOSE THINGS IS DEATH.  ROMANS 6:21 KJV.  

We cannot be hypocrites, or be in denial, or really an enemy to self, by denying these truths.  We need word, holy word.  King James word. We need to keep growing.  

Look again, I am far from being perfect.  I know my flaws.  I know I have had terrible judgment.  I have sinned, I have made mistakes, I grieve over.  But I take them all to the cross, even now, and humble myself, in the sight of God, and others.  And repent, yes daily. 

But I am not the tail.  I am the head, because HE IS THE GREAT I AM.  Because I am His daughter.  Because I plead the blood of Jesus.  Because I repent, And I seek to know His ways, and I implore you, please learn, His truths.  Please obey.  

Someday we all will stand before  Him. And He is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  I don’t judge you in this, but I warn you.  In love.  I sincerely, try to teach you this, so you can be the best you can be in Christ.

LET HIM THAT IS TAUGHT IN THE WORD COMMUNICATE UNTO HIM THAT TEACHETH IN ALL GOOD THINGS.  BE NOT DECEIVED:  GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING.  AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING:  FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. GALATIANS 6:6-9  KJV.

Its not too late for any of us while we breathe, move, live and have our being in Christ.  We can make a difference for the body of Christ.  

But don’t be lazy, let us not be weary in well doing.  Learn, share, and grow in Christ.  By knowing King James word.  You would only have yourself to blame, if you do not heed my advice in this matter.  

FOR IN HIM WE LIVE, AND MOVE, AND HAVE OUR BEING: AS CERTAIN ALSO OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, FOR WE ARE ALSO HIS OFFSPRING.  ACTS 17:28 KJV.

I implore you, before Christ knocks on your door, invite Him in, and repent of sin, let Him teach you His ways, for truth and life.  Taking away the spirit of strife that comes from rebellion, and sin, let Him teach you, how to begin…..Take your KJV sword of truth, and let it give you the mind of Christ.  To find your path and avoid His wrath….

MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE:  BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I WILL ALSO REJECT THEE, THAT THOU SHALT BE NO PRIEST TO ME:  SEEING THOU HAST FORGOTTEN THE LAW OF THY GOD, I WILL ALSO FORGET THY CHILDREN.  HOSEA 4:6.  KJV.  

Much love, in Christ,

THOUGHTS ON BEING ON THE SAME PAGE WITH GOD AND KJV SCRIPTURE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1605.jpg

THOUGHTS ON BEING ON THE SAME PAGE WITH GOD AND KJV SCRIPTURE…..

As an intercessor, I remember the days, when I used to give someone a scripture, for their need be it health, or guidance, comfort, faith, hope, whatever…. and we were all on the same page with God. For the most part. We all used the same Bible versions. That being the KJV. But it has changed so very much, even in the last twenty years….

Now with all the different Bible versions, I actually have to be specific, and tell a person, use a KJV for the holiness, and anointing so the scripture, you use will not be corrupt. The enemy, has done a number on so many people, and its sad.

Like I say; ” If the enemy can deceive a person in the word they use, he can deceive you in anything.”

I CHARGE THEE THEREFORE BEFORE GOD, AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO SHALL JUDGE THE QUICK AND THE DEAD AT HIS APPEARING AND HIS KINGDOM; PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON, OUT OF SEASON, REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE. FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES, TEACHERS, HAVING ITCHING EARS; AND THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, AND SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES. BUT WATCH THOU IN ALL THINGS, ENDURE AFFLICTIONS, DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, MAKE FULL PROOF OF THY MINISTRY. II TIMOTHY 4:1-5. KJV.

RESPECT IS…. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0084.jpgRespect Is…

Not agreeing with every ones opinion, but having enough wisdom, to know, you don’t need to debate it, or argue about it, or try to make someone understand. To respect the differences.

Or even hit them on the head with the truth. Sometimes, you have to go through a few things to get it.

I think I got it….

Thank you Jesus. You see, love, should always be evident. Without trying to make someone feel bad, or to reject them.

We are all on the vine at different places. I may try to show you truth. But I pray to do it with love, and yes respect. Because you are a child of God, as I am.

Yes, live and learn. Christ said, we would be known by the love. “Let the love shine through, by showing respect or if anything courtesy.”

This is one more new motto…..I will carry as a badge of honor, I pray, to His glory.

BUT THANKS BE TO GOD, WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.  I CORINTHIANS 15:57.  KJV.

DO YOU PLAY “HARD TO GET” WITH GOD? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


P8280045

Before I go further, I want to answer you, and tell you don’t play hard to get with God.  And I will elaborate.

But, I want you to look at this like a fine stone, that has been carved out by the master potter Himself, God almighty.  There are many facets to our life, one part, may show a dinginess, in the stone.  And one part, may be so clear, it glows.  But as a whole, the beauty of  the stone it reflects who God is.

I ask if you play hard to get with God.  Because some of us, when growing up, learned to master that quality.  Holding out, till something good came along, then we have given it our all.

Some did not.  And with regret, there were times, in friendships, and love, I did not play hard to get.  I wanted what I wanted then, and well, sometimes, the results were not worth it.

When you are growing up, you play hard to get with a perspective mate.  Or you should anyway.  My mother taught me that. Yet do we always listen to our mothers?  No.  Sadly.  

Anyway, you hold out, and play hard to get, because you want to see how much, this person is interested in you.  And you test the ground they stand on.

What is it worth to get your attention?  Have you ever noticed, a guy, will not give you too much interest, if you are interested in him?  Men like a challenge, they like to chase the girl.  They like the idea of the hunt.  A woman, or girl, who makes herself so available to him, is not a challenge.  There is no fun in that.

And I will be more explicit here, but a woman, who gives herself to a man, totally, sexually, not only has stopped the challenge, but all is not fair in love and war.  Once a man disarms a woman, there is no more of a challenge, and he got what he wanted, and is looking for another challenge.  Even if he says he loves you.  He may wonder who else beat him to the challenge.  Something is missing now.  The sin, has entered into the equation.

A woman, in Christ, will know how precious her soul, body, and spirit is, and will make a man wait for that love, by not giving herself away.  She sees the value of playing hard to get.  She holds out for Holy matrimony.  Where God can be the foundation, and yes cornerstone for that marriage.  And if the man is smart, he will see her value, and marry her.  In honor.  Sound old fashioned?

Well maybe it is, but Gods ways, are old but true.

I have tried it, and tested the logic and I know what works.  You see, I saw my value about 28 years ago, when I met my husband, and I honored myself, and God.  I played hard to get, by doing it Gods way.  And with success, I have a foundation in marriage, that has stood time.  I thank God.

Now lets talk about playing hard to get with God.  Many of us, have or had that mentality, or thought, that we can do it on our own.  We don’t need God.  Sadly, I once thought that too.  And those were the darkest days of my life.  And with shame, yes shame, I admit, I made so many mistakes, in being misguided, that it also turned into great sin.

If only, I did not play hard to get with God.  I would not have hit the bottom of the barrel.  I would not have had low self-esteem.

Do you notice people who are people pleasers, sometimes, forget their own worth, and they give themselves away.  And I am not just talking about sexually.  But I am talking about always saying “yes” or going above and beyond, for someone or some, who could care less.  Doing something for someone over and over again, that they take you for granted.  And do not appreciate the kindness, or the gesture even in love.  

Sometimes, you have to remember the rule of playing hard to get with people, and in love, because you want good results.  But you must never play hard to get with God.  Never.  

You have to remember, who He is.  He is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. He is mighty in power and strength.  He is the creator of heaven and earth.  Of heaven and hell.  And yes, He does have the ability to take your name and put it in the lambs book of life, for eternal salvation.  But if your name is tainted with sin, He can remove it, and the destination would be hell.  Why people play with their salvation, and play hard to get in obedience is beyond me.  

But I would not chance on playing with His love.  He is love.  And without His love, our love, is in vain.  Our attempts are in vain.  Unless He builds the house, yes, we labor in vain like the scripture says.  And I am paraphrasing.  But we only have this lifetime, to make the difference.  So repentance even on a daily basis, keeps you shining.  

I suppose, the whole point I am trying to make, is you are that beautiful stone.  And if you let the master, the potterer, take your life, and mold it and shape it, and teach you His ways, you will have something to be excellent, and worthy at.  But you have to see your worth.  You have to see yourself, through Gods eyes.  He looks at the heart, while people, they look at the outside.  But what does God see?  Does He see just lip service?  But the heart is away from Him even in truth.

BUT NOW, O LORD, THOU ART OUR FATHER; WE ARE THE CLAY, AND THOU OUR POTTER; AND WE ALL ARE THE WORK OF THY HAND.  Isaiah 64:8.

THIS PEOPLE DRAWETH NIGH UNTO ME WITH THEIR MOUTH, AND HONOURETH ME WITH THEIR LIPS: BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME.  Matthew 15:8.

More then anything, you have to see who HE is.  How excellent His ways are.  How powerful, and yes even mysterious He can be.  There is no greater force, or love, then His.  No wonder, at His miracles.  Or limit.  

But you cannot, my dear friend, play hard to get with God.  You have to give it your all for Him.  In this life.  For if you do not, there will be regrets.  There will be a sense, of failure.  Sin does separate us from God. You can even lose your way, but you must always remember, He is the way, the truth, and life.  Finding God, means you find the way.  

I just have the sense, that we must do every thing, in the time, we are given.  To give Him glory, to give Him thanks, to acknowledge Him to others.  To be love.  To try and be a reflection of Christ.  Yes we fail.  I know I do, every day.  But then I have moments, where I see, because I do not play hard to get, with God, I am able to be molded into something beautiful, for His glory, even in my words, with truth.  And He is not done with me.  But I will not limit God, by playing hard to get!  Do you understand how deep this thought is?

Please my friends, do not play hard to get with God.  With some people yes, they do not deserve you.  They will treat you like dirt.  They will ignore you.  They will be playing hard to get themselves.  And it goes deeper, because it is the enemies intention to have you fail.  To deceive you.

But with those, who love, truly as Christ does, they will also see your worth.  Those are those, who God has brought to remind you, that you are worth NOT playing hard to get for.  I have learned this even in a day.  How loyal some can be.  But then there are those, who only want what you can give, and even if it is through God.  They play hard to get.

But remember, Christ did not play hard to get.  He went on that cross, and gave His life, the ultimate sacrifice, so you could live.  And live abundantly.  Never play hard to get with that.  It cost too much.  

He said, be Holy, because He is holy.  Play hard to get with others to get that holiness.  But let God in…..

You see, time could run out.  We are not promised tomorrow.  Dont take chances that make you look like you are playing hard to get with God.  

I Peter 1:16 BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN, BE YE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.  

Another reminder, use a King James Bible, because it is Holy.  Now you know I would tell you that, because you do not want something that has been corrupted.  Have a blessed one.

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

MY DOCUMENTED THOUGHTS TO ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ ON HER CALL FOR PRAYER CONCERNING GODS JUDGMENT ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really feel led here to document my thoughts to Anne Graham Lotz, and her call for the body of Christ to pray, because we are in end times, and because of Gods judgment.   I do it here on my blog.  Because it needs to be shouted out!  I cannot contain this truth.

I am not disputing her or looking for an argument that we all will be judged.  What I pray, that she would see, especially because of her lineage, being Billy Grahams daughter, that the body of Christ, and its leaders will be judged first.  And she can make a difference.  People would listen to her.

I really feel in my heart, and by a prompting by God, that we are in dangerous times, and a place, that when we use unholy bibles, that have been corrupted.  That deception comes in.  That the holiness is taken out, when people put their hands on Gods holy word, and change it.

The argument, is that the Bible has been changed throughout times.  Yet, no one sees the many warnings, to not do that.

Many of you know my stance on this.  Many do not agree.  Many do.  And I just want to document these thoughts, to bring it to her attention.  To bring it to the attention of the body of Christ.

I have known this truth for a few years, when I first saw the discrepancies.  In bibles.  My spiritual eyes were opened.  The spirit of confusion left me.  And I know that because I obeyed God, and when I did, I began to understand scripture by the Holy Spirit.  It was no longer a struggle, to know Gods word.

I can only “try” and be obedient to God.  By bringing this to your attention and hers.  I don’t know if she reads peoples comments, or not, or she cares, or if anybody cares.  But I care what God thinks.  I pray that she does see this.  I pray, someone would even bring it to her attention.

I care, what pleases God, in obedience.  I cannot get in strife with anyone over this, but I will with what I can, in my own natural ability, with help from the Holy Spirit, to be led, to speak this truth.  Wherever God leads me.

And I feel led to document my own thoughts here, for the sake of reinforcing, this truth.  To those who have ears, hear.  These are my thoughts.  I just want the record to stand as it is.  For the most part of my thoughts…

Even as it is documented in heaven.  God knows.  We cannot change something, and think he does not see.  He does.  He sees it all, and I really believe it grieves Him.  When the deception tries to come in.

And….As Gods holy word the King James Bible stands for itself, in its truth.  By its own merit.  As God is my witness, I present this to you:

I agree, that God will judge. I appreciate your lineage, and who you are in Christ. But I have to add, that God is going to judge the body of Christ, and the leaders. We have a responsibility, in even the Bibles we choose. To bring word. Please don’t dismiss me, or my thoughts on this. I really sense and have heard God on this. That He is very displeased, that the body of Christ has not taken His warnings, in fear of Him, to obey Him, in this matter.

There are many scriptures that warn us not to change, add, delete, His Holy word. When they did, they “corrupted” the holy word of God, and took away the anointing. Christians are using rubber swords. Christ is the living bread, but there is mold on the bread that is served in His name. Christ would not serve us junk food. But we use, and share, scripture that has mold on it.

We will be judged, first. I believe, because many have distorted and watered down gospel. You could make a difference. You could warn many in the body of Christ how important it is to obey God in this matter. I am not trying to debate with you or anyone. Truth stands on its own merit.

The King James, has been established for 400 years. The words of the Lord are pure words….Preserved. Psalms 12:6-7. But it has been established in Heaven first. In His Kingdom, and it is not o.k. to use these distorted versions. That is a lie right out of hell.

If we do not see, the discrepancies, of missing scriptures, content changed, and disobedience in this, yes we will be judged. People do not have fear of God in this matter. They don’t. And that is the beginning of wisdom.

But I don’t want to be counted with the liars, that Proverbs 30:5-6 warns us about. I don’t want to be one of those that have corrupted word, but to speak truth, as II Corinthians 2:17 tells us about. In fear of God, I tell you this, because Revelation 22:18-19 warns us that one could lose their right to the Holy city, which tells me salvations could be lost and the things they want from a Bible they will not get. I ask you to read these scriptures from a King James. The warnings are there. We will all be judged.

Then this woman wanted to debate me, very rudely I might add, and said, it was because of false doctrine.  

This was my response:

I am not going to debate this with you. I will not deny the many warnings God has given us. I have done my research, and in fear of God, I see the discrepencies. The false doctrine, comes from the corrupted bible versions. Have a nice day.

Again a rebuttal from this person and I respond:

I have obeyed God in this, I have presented the truth to Ann Graham Lotz, and I have nothing further to add to your thought, or to others, debating me on this. I am not going to get into strife with anyone over this…. Or your thoughts, to denote my love for Christ in serving Him. I am His servant. As I said, truth stands on its own merit.

Let me just clarify this, the King James Bible is not a version. I leave this conversation, praying, seed was planted to awaken people, to see, that enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Christ came that we “might” have life, and life abundantly.

If we have no fear of God in this matter, even concerning His holy word, those who deny truth, are deceived. The blind leading the blind, will fall in a ditch. That is scriptural. But maybe you never saw that, in one of those watered down versions, that denies Christ. Or that takes away His deity, in just a mere compromising of words. Maybe you never saw the many warnings. Not to change word. Or add to it, or delete it. But I plead with you for your soul. Get a King James Bible, for the anointing, and holiness, that only that Bible offers. I plead with all of you, before Christ returns.  

Another rude thought from this person, and I closed with this scripture:  

II THESALLONIANS 2:11 KJV AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE.  

Thank you for your considerations and attention to read this, and if you can please share it, and with Anne Graham Lotz.  

In obedience to Christ, and in His love, that comes from His cross.  Elena Ramirez
