And for such a time as this I write it. Why God has shown me this, is beyond me, but I do want to serve our Lord in truth. His truth. Not mans truth, not a publisher who purposely disobeys God in this. And certainly not in false prophets, who are to me, wolves in sheep’s clothing.
I don’t want nothing to do with that. And yes, the Lord has been showing me these things.
For a while now, I have tried with all my being, giving scripture, concerning the KJV word. That these Bible versions, that are out, and very much used, are, an abomination to God. Yes, an abomination. He does not accept them. Because they have disobeyed God by changing the word, and the word is not holy, but compromised.
I have told so many, this, as best as I can to my own ability, but I need the ability of God, so I press in with prayer, and the Holy word, in the King James, as Christ is the word. (see John 1 from the KJV to see His truth, as to being the word.) So I don’t just spin my wheels.
It just makes me think, He is holy. He did not compromise. Truth. He spoke it in love, and He was steadfast in that.
I want to be like that. I have been in a few spiritual battles lately, for this reason, but also because with the recent tragedies, I have seen “false prophets.” Those that claim they are serving God, yet they cannot serve their fellow person, unless they are publicly shamed. I have seen these false prophets, take scripture, twist it, change it, compromise it, for a prosperity message. That tickles others ears, but it is so far, from Gods truth, its obvious. There is no call, or warning to call those to repent. To tell them to seek Christ, because we are in end times. To ensure their salvation.
But obviously not to some, they think these messages are fine. For some think that their is an anointing in these messages. They think if it makes you feel good, it is good, and thereby there is no harm in it. They don’t see the contradictions because it does not line up with Gods holy word. Yet, the message eludes repentance, or a calling of those to beware, and to seek God for who He is, not what He can give. They turn God into an ATM. Its very deceptive, because it does tickle the ears. It grieves me. So if it grieves me it has to grieve God.
My thought is this, as it is also KJV scriptural, you know them by their fruit. Is the message, based on Gods holy, uncompromised Holy KJV word? Or is it a message, that tickles your ears? Is it a message, that does not cause you to search for God by also searching yourself, to see where one may fail? To repent to be humble? Is it a prosperity message? That totally disregards Gods truth, and commandments, His law. Gods ways are excellence. And He is not mocked. There was a reason, why Christ turned the tables in the temple. Do we forget what angers God?
One man, told me, I don’t care, if this prophet, is in the truth of the Bible, or if I even make it to heaven. I just want to have some hope in today. Wow, I thought.
For a while now, I have been trying to share this truth. About the deception in Bibles. Not to judge anybody, but because we are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the righteous. When I read that, from my King James. I am assuming the “righteous” is other Christians. And these brothers and sisters, who I try to warn, are not listening to what I say about exclusively only using the King James, but they are following false prophets. Who themselves use false word. They think its judging….
And I try to stop them, to bring it to their attention, not to judge them, but because I know what Gods word says in these matters, and I have discernment.
But it goes in one ear, and out the other. Either it is ignored, or they fight. And they fight with a vengeance, defending that which is wrong. They get so angry, if you bring it to their attention. They defend this unrighteousness, and they say you are judging. They dismiss, Gods holy word, that tells us, to beware of such prophets. Like Jeremiah 23:16.
THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, HEARKEN NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS THAT PROPHESY UNTO YOU: THEY MAKE YOU VAIN: THEY SPEAK A VISION OF THEIR OWN HEART, AND NOT OUT OF OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.
How specific does God have to get for us to get that? Do we have to see His wrath, before we open our eyes? Do we have to see our sins, separate ourselves from Him? Do we have to lose our blessings, our sense of discernment, because one would follow a prophet, who does that?
Oh how I grieved for that, man who told me that he did not even care if he made it to heaven! And I shared with him truth, but he did not even acknowledge me. I told him, get a King James bible.
I have told friends, who buy these books, and support these ministries, and read that crap, but they don’t listen. One friend, judged me, harshly, rudely, and insulted me, because I told her, I do not read these books, from someone who does not even obey God in this. This was concerning another false prophet.
Yet I walked in love. I had another friend, who totally ignored this but felt to even bring it up, one was a “backstabber” if they even said anything about a false prophet. Really? Because last time I checked, we are called to warn each other. We are called to mark those who cause division. And have nothing to do with them. We are called to test the spirits. To try them.
I had another friend, a gentleman, who told me I changed, I used to be so nice. And I thought, I still am nice. I just want you to have your blessings, I just want you to get answers to prayer. I just want you to please God. And have true discernment. I have noticed people would rather stop talking to you, and quit being your friend, if you even bring these matters up. About the KJV or false prophets.
Well oh well, I guess I am out of friends. Because I would rather please God, then deny His truth. But thats not true. I do have some faithful friends. Loyal friends. There are only a few that, that stand by me, support me, encourage me, and see my gift and calling. They share my writings, and they communicate. Communication is such a wonderful thing. Because we sharpen each other.
Anyway, concerning those who are not listening….
I have spoken these things, in love, and the love was not returned. I did not argue, fight, yet, I was ignored. And told to “agree, to disagree” was what was needed. Nor an apology was extended. Try telling God that when you ignore His word. Try telling God that when you need a miracle. Life is unpredictable, and if we are not doing our part, if we are not obedient to God, we are hypocrites, to say the least. How do we expect answers to prayer, if we do not obey Him, in just these matters?
If a pastor cannot obey God, even in the word he uses, or she, as a public speaker, why would I want that false anointing on me? Its part truth, and part lie! Where is the message for repentance, humbleness? These false prophets, promote pride.
But if you tell another brother or sister in Christ this, who thinks they are “righteous” (again like Ezekiel 33 says) They get very angry. They fight you. My thought is this, I do not want to be defending, or agreeing with someone that disobeys God in these matters. I don’t want to be on the wrong side. I would rather walk alone, then to be in the company of someone who insists these false bibles, and false prophets are correct.
Like the saying goes, “you can lead them to water, but you cannot make them drink it.” And I won’t hit someone on the head, with my King James bible, if they want to follow the blind. Like scripture says, the blind, will lead the blind, and they know not where they go. You might want to look it up from a KJV.
So this morning, because I know this is on Gods heart, He showed me the following scriptures:
WHY THEN IS THIS PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM SLIDDEN BACK BY PERPETUAL BACKSLIDING? THEY HOLD FAST DECEIT, THEY REFUSE TO RETURN. I HEARKENED AND HEARD, THEY SPAKE NOT ARIGHT: NO MAN REPENTED HIM OF HIS WICKEDNESS, SAYING WHAT HAVE I DONE? EVERY ONE TURNED TO HIS COURSE, AS THE HORSE RUSHETH INTO THE BATTLE. YEA, THE STORK IN THE HEAVEN KNOWETH HER APPOINTED TIMES; AND THE SWALLOW OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR COMING; BUT MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD. JEREMIAH 8:5-7. KJV.
Wow…His people do not know the judgment of the Lord. They refuse to return. From this, which God sees as backsliding. This is what I see, when my friends, or people ignore the warnings I give about false word, or false prophets. They do not repent, nor do they even acknowledge, the truth in these matters. They will not apologize, or even be accountable that they are not seeing it clearly. They would rather turn on the silent treatment. Well I can be silent too.
That scares me. In the fear of God. Not in judging, but in warning them.
I have another friend, who I love dearly. And we are having a discussion about not giving, and giving. Why? Because I don’t like being off balance. When I cannot give in return. Some people can do it free and easy. And some do not have the resources. I believe gifts, should be given in careful consideration, not just to give. I don’t like the feeling of just taking, but not being able to give equally. I don’t want to use anybody, nor do I want to feel used. I think thats a horrible feeling. But I also feel, that a gift is a spiritual connection, and if someone does not appreciate a gift, for example, and even re-gifts it, thats just sad. Especially if someone sees you playing with their heart, and you make excuses instead of being accountable.
Anyway, I don’t know why I feel this way, maybe this is why I serve God, with all I can, because I know I cannot repay Him, for who He is, and what He did on that cross. For me personally. His life was a gift. I don’t want God to feel like I am using Him.
And these false messages, that take part truth do remind me of that, with the prosperity message, like it promotes only using God, and that is so wrong. To me it is.
But I try and serve Him, so He knows, I am thankful. I serve Him, in HIS KJV truth, so He knows I am trying to obey Him. His gift of life is too precious to let it be only about the prosperity message, or to think even His grace is sufficient, when I know, I could make a difference.
But I will try, I will try with all my being. I will try to repay Him. I will try to stand in His truth. I will try…..
To give Love. I will try to obey, and warn others. I will try to serve Him, and never be ashamed to be called a Christian. I just want to be strong in His truth, and nothing else. I want to be aware of the enemies antics, and avoid the lies. The deception. I want nothing to do with it. I don’t want anything that separates me from God.
But there is something in my heart, that wants to at least, keep His KJV word, in love and obedience.
I just see the difference, between false word, and false prophets, and if I can spare someone, and at least give them that, to know truth, then maybe, just maybe, my life, will bring glory to God. And maybe just maybe, they can repent, return to God, and see the difference themselves, from false word, and false prophets. So they can avoid the deception.
Bottom line, if they do not use a KJV they are a false prophet to me. Sorry if this offends anybody, but thats the way I see it. I won’t argue about it, or try to convince anybody.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I know it is a little longer then most of my “Just my Thoughts.” Feel free to share this, if you agree with my thoughts. If not, oh well.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
Why do we lose focus, and end up jumping in rabbit holes? Remember Alice in Wonderland? Well, she ended up jumping in a rabbit hole and looked for a way to get back.
We can do that, in a symbolic way. By getting distracted, by not working on our relationship with Christ. By working, by family. By money, finances, whatever it is that takes us away from Christ, is making us to jump in rabbit holes. Its called sin.
This can happen to the best of us, or the worst of us, whatever your perspective is.
So no one is really immune from this, even Christians.
And I guess, I am writing about it, because yesterday, I just had a terrible day. And I was not being true to myself, or to even what I was telling the Lord. I had to repent.
And I won’t go into details. Because I did repent, but I had to center myself back in Christ. And I had a good talk with my hubby, who is always honest with me, but straight. And not a crooked man, in any way. And I thank God for him. We all should be thankful to God for those He brings to us, but who will be honest. I am trying to be honest with you!
My husband told me frankly, you seem to have lost your focus. And I was amazed. Because he hit it right on the nail.
I am a warrior, for Christ, but sometimes, when I get in that warrior mode, I have a hard time getting back centered, to my peace.
I believe in truth, and I believe in being true to God, but when I contradict myself. Something is wrong spiritually. And I know myself well enough, to stop, make a change, repent, and get back to “finding Christ, as the way, the truth, and the life” that John 14:6, tells us about. That I need in my own journey of life.
I had to do that yesterday. And as I did, I felt the Lord, tell me to write and share this. Why? Because He does give me words, to write, and if I can help somebody as well, then I am back to doing what I should, and I am focused.
Life is hard. Even as we get older. When you are younger, you can get full of yourself, and try to take on the world. But when you get older, and you look at the progress, or the results, it can discourage you.
But with God all things are possible. And sometimes, well, I have had to stop like I did yesterday, and get focused. Because things like money, finances, dreams not coming true, self-esteem issues, can distract us, and we end up in that rabbit hole. Or unrepented sin. Things that we may do, in a cowardly way, or a sneaky way, or a way, that just is not honest. But really is not good for the soul.
God does not want that for us. Let me repeat that. God does not want that for us.
But we have to discipline ourselves. As disciples of Christ. We have to see the error of our own ways, repent, and get back to just looking at Christ.
Praying, reading our King James Bible. Extending grace to one another, because Christ extends grace to us. Walking in love. Being humble, being quiet sometimes, and just seeking our Lord.
As long as there is breath in us, anything is possible, if we are seeking the Lord.
And I love how God, shows himself mighty in small things, to increase my faith for even big things.
Even though, I had a terrible day yesterday, I was able to pray, and for someone else, as I took my mind off of me. Yesterday, I was on FB, and a friend of mine, who I love in Christ, and I pray for, as well, in other things, asked for prayer, because her kitty had been gone out all day. The kitty had not been feeling well, and she wanted her home. The cat usually never stays out long, so it was unusual behavior for that cat. It was late in the evening already. But when I prayed with her, and it was a prayer of agreement. I prayed specifically, that God would bring that cat home, before they closed for the night. God answered that prayer, and the kitty returned home. Glory to God.
But it did something to my own faith, that needed God, yesterday. I was broken, and so off centered. I had a horrible day. Because I was not being true to myself, or my Lord, and I felt wicked. And I base that, on scripture that says, there is no peace to the wicked. So I knew I was doing something wrong.
THERE IS NO PEACE, SAITH THE LORD, UNTO THE WICKED. ISAIAH 48:22 KJV.
And you know what the devil wants us to feel that way. Nope, I love my peace. So, I will do what I have to do. Repent, be humble, and listen and seek the Lord for instruction. So that can leave!
The other night, I saw a movie, and I don’t remember what the name of it was. But this man said, that which is crooked, cannot be made straight, and he quoted the Bible.
He put a slant on it, and thats why again, I don’t like to use anything that is corrupted, concerning scripture, because the anointing, and truth, can be missing from just a few words. And totally mislead. Who knows what Bible version he used. I am also careful who I listen to that quotes any kind of scripture. Remember Christ told us there would be wolves in sheep’s clothing.
But anyway, that stuck for some reason to me, and I kept thinking of my past sins, and I thought, of how I was off, and I thought, I must be crooked. I thought that, until I searched the scriptures myself. I forgot, that yes, I have repented. Do you ever do that? It can happen. But we have to bring everything to the obedience of Christ. Its just the devil, the enemy trying to bring condemnation. But if we have repented, if we have changed, well, its covered by the blood of Jesus.
But, you know there are a few scriptures that do say that. About that which is crooked cannot be made straight. So if someone did not do more research, they would think thats it, theres no hope. But I found one, that states, God can make that which is crooked straight.
“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:”
Isaiah 40:4 KJV
GOD, can straighten us out. He can take us off of that crooked path. He can make the rough places plain, because He is the way, the truth, and life.
I don’t know where you are, in your journey in life. But I will say this, if you want your path made plain, if you want to get refocused, and not tossed to and fro with this, that and the other. Including doctrine, you have your part. GET AND USE A KING JAMES BIBLE.
You may have done horrendous things in your life. But there is something to be said, by just bowing your head. Crying to God. Repenting, and pulling yourself up by the boot straps, and try to make that change with His help.
You don’t have to stay in that dark rabbit hole. You don’t have to be lost any more.
Even if you are a Christian, who has sinned, you can make it right by repenting, and seeking God.
But you cannot keep jumping in that same bad rabbit hole, if you really have learned your lesson in life.
I have learned in order to be true to myself. I have to be true to Christ.
Let me repeat that, and add: I HAVE LEARNED IN ORDER TO BE TRUE TO MYSELF, I HAVE TO BE TRUE TO CHRIST.
And, that which I add, is that if I do not honor, and respect myself, and others, then honor is not mine.
How can we get honor in something we don’t give?
Food for thought today, praying this helps you, if you are in that rabbit hole, and you feel lost. Get focused. Call on Christ, repent, but be true to Him. Not just in lip service, but your heart. In your actions, and if you contradict yourself. Get on your knees. Get on your knees anyway, to Him, that way, you can stand up to anything.
Advice, I take for myself as well.
Blessings, and love,
As we grow in Christ, as we grow in prayer. There are just some things, we should do in the Holy Spirit.
Repentance, always clears the slate, I believe. When we come to Christ humble, repentant, for perhaps those things we think, or have allowed into our spirits, that could corrupt us. We need to be careful. Things that are sin in His eyes.
But I just had a sense, that when we pray, we really need to see with our “spiritual eyes.” We need to see Jesus, there, when we pray.
Christ told us, He would not leave, or forsake us. He told us, that He would never leave us.
I believe the Lord, gave me this thought, to help us in our faith. To help us see. Sometimes, we ask for things, and we are not sure, He has heard us, or we are not sure, if there is a way.
But Christ told us, He is the way, the truth, and life. John 14:6. He told us, if we asked in His name, the father would grant it. He told us if we believed it would be ours. He told us, that He would give us the desires of our heart, as we delight in Him. Oh yes, give God the glory, honor, and praise, as you approach His throne.
How can we delight in our Lord? Well, one way, is when we pray, actually open your spiritual eyes, to see Christ there, listening.
Let me repeat that. Look at Christ there, when you close your eyes, to pray. See Him, attentive to your need. Because again, He is there, He will not leave or forsake you. See Him, in the spirit, the Holy Spirit.
Quiet your spirit, to just hearing His voice. Read a King James scripture, that is Holy, and anointed, and let Him, counsel you. I cannot even count the many times, that God has spoken to me, in need of an answer, and I just opened up my King James Bible.
He says, He knows our desire, even before we speak it. So, think, and ponder on Him, when you go to His throne. See Him, in His majesty. See Him, as you seek His Kingdom, and all things will be added unto you.
Sometimes words do not come to us. We may be hurting, we may be distracted, but as a disciple of Christ, we do need to discipline ourselves. Just look for Him, in the spirit. Beware of counterfeits though, in the spirit, and beware of the enemies voice, who always tries to be deceptive. This is why repentance, is so important.
And never, ever, set up an idol, or a symbol, that would grieve Him. He hates idolatry. So get rid of such things, even in prayer. Now I know many might disagree with that thought, but Father, is very jealous in these matters. And wants us to search for Him by the spirit, not by a graven image, that is even a commandment that tells us not to set up.
THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE, ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH. EXODUS 20:4 KJV.
YE SHALL MAKE YOU NO IDOLS NOR GRAVEN IMAGE, NEITHER REAR YOU UP A STANDING IMAGE, NEITHER SHALL YE SET UP ANY IMAGE OF STONE IN YOUR LAND, TO BOW DOWN UNTO IT: FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD. Leviticus 26:1. KJV.
We have to try and learn and know, what pleases our Lord. Anyway, Christ, knows by the spirit, what you need. Know, that He is listening there, searching your heart. Knowing the mind of the spirit. Because He makes “intercession” for you according to the will of God.
AND HE THAT SEARCHETH THE HEARTS KNOWETH WHAT IS THE MIND OF THE SPIRIT, BECAUSE HE MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR THE SAINTS ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD. ROMANS 8:27 KJV.
When you know He is there, when you know He is seeing you, it just makes your faith, easier. It makes your prayer have a sense of accomplishment. Because He sees you, He is there. Just see HIM with your spiritual eyes. Try to please Him, humble, when you pray.
I share this, because as an intercessor, I have learned some things, in trying to understand what works, and what does not. What pleases God. But if we are humble, if we are taking the whole word of God, that is King James word, and we are not using anything counterfeit or corrupt, that the enemy would use to deceive. I believe our chances in prayer, can make a difference. And every one knows, that I only recommend a King James Bible because it is holy. It is anointed. It is preserved in Heaven and earth, and I believe when you use it, your on the same page with God. And thats always the goal….
Never underestimate prayer, but do what you can to make sure your prayer is heard. Sin, will separate us from God, and He will not hear. But the sweetest, simplest prayers can be heard, even in our child like faith.
Looking for Him, to be there, when you pray, is just an exercise in prayer. In faith….
Blessings, and love Elena Ramirez
I feel led to write about communication. With one another, with God, with others, and as a Christian, I feel I am more indebted to try and communicate.
Most of my problems I have had in life, or with others, are due to not getting communication. Where things may seem to be fuzzy, or where someone, may take the incentive, but will do something and not communicating. Or where something is assumed.
Or where I was expected to do something, but I did not know. So because communication was not reinforced, things fell through, or did not get accomplished.
Its so vital, to communicate, and I think thats why I have since, an early age, tried to articulate my thoughts, actually by writing them down, and communicate through writing, because I have not always been confident, or been a great orator. But that changed when I began writing my thoughts, as a reference. So I overcame that to build up my self esteem.
In business, I learned to document my thoughts, and situations, because you need a back up sometimes. To determine, what was communicated, and if it was not, then I had my notes to refer to. To show, this was what was communicated.
I used to work for the phone company. And I used to joke to some, that the phone company, was responsible for providing great phone service to others, for having the tool as the phone. But inside the ranks of the company, there were times, communication was not available, and things were not understood, and the protocol, for even sharing information was difficult. To receive or share. Whose who? Who do I need to contact, to communicate with?
Recently, I have had situations arise, where communication was vague, or where someone, actually did not communicate with me, and misunderstandings did occur. And I am not going to give the enemy fuel, if I remain silent. I have my part. And I see how the enemy can only come to destroy, when communication is not available.
I have a neighbor, who just recently overstepped, her authority in a matter, because she did not communicate a problem with us, and tried to rectify a problem on her own, concerning our fence. If she had only come to us, and stated there was a problem with the fence, and asked for our assistance, we would have been glad, to help. Or, if she had asked for permission. But she did neither, and now consequently, the situation has gotten so bad, by her lack of communication, that we are at odds with each other. And its sad.
With my friends, who I love dearly, things like that can also occur, if one person, is assuming something, but the communication is not clear, feelings can get hurt.
Or with family. Who I love dearly. With my hubby, or son, we often have little powwows, so we can get to the root of a problem but we communicate, so we all understand each other. And I will just say here, everyone, needs that, to feel important or understood. Then we pray to God, because we always need to communicate to our Lord.
So I try, really hard to communicate. And I also ask for feedback, to see if my message was conveyed, and understood. When one does not make the effort to do that, things, can fall through the cracks.
I really feel like God is telling us, we have a responsibility to communicate. Is it easy? Not always. Confrontation, can make it seem like war. But the enemy would rather have us shut up, then to communicate. Even if I do not agree with someone, I so appreciate, the effort when communication is presented. It helps.
But when someone goes silent, its mind boggling, because you just don’t know. So yes, I can be bold, and confront, if I need communication in a matter. Some things, to be honest, I don’t want to know, but if I am included in a matter, to do something, yes communicate with me. Its a service we do for one another, but it takes two parties to do it.
I am pretty fair, when I know the facts, but its so frustrating, if you are put on the spot, yet someone did not say, or communicate, this is what I expect. These are the rules.
Life is funny, and people like to do their own thing but do we really look as well to see, what God says? Not man, but God, first. I love my King James bible, because Gods Holy word, is there to give me answers. God has done His part by communicating and giving us His Holy word. And I just will say it here, He does not give us something only to think about but if its there, its a commandment. But He provides, always.
….Answers to why things happen, but also what God expects. Sometimes you have to connect the dots, but communicating with God, is so important. Prayer. He is the King of Kings, He established His thoughts, but if I want answers I have to talk to Him, I have to search my Bible, I have to see and examine my part and heart in this matter. Do I communicate, did I communicate my part effectively?
And with others. Sometimes, I have to apologize. Or repent, and to God, I need to do this often. Practically every day, because I am not perfect. In communication. Sometimes, I have to say, I failed to understand your thoughts, so I reacted this way.
But when someone does not apologize or communicate as well, it is frustrating to say the least. When I have communicated, but the communication was not returned. Or understood.
Maybe thats why I am writing this. Because communication is so important. But it is a two way street. One cannot just communicate, and work at something, while someone does not offer communication in return.
Well, I hope this brings insight, like I say, I am an opened book in many ways, and there are some things I don’t spill the beans about, or blab or communicate about, because it could be misunderstood, but if I try to be honest, and truthful with others and God, it does seem to make things easier.
Communication always has to be worked out.
This is what the Bible says about this. I am glad it does. Because more then anything I want to please my Lord. Thank you…Father.
HEBREWS 13:16 KJV
BUT TO DO GOOD AND TO COMMUICATE FORGET NOT: FOR WITH SUCH SACRIFICES GOD IS WELL PLEASED.
Blessings, and love,
I want to be a soul winner even for the “lost” righteous. Does that make sense? Yea, it does, because there are many who think they are righteous, they think they are saved. They think their salvation is in tact. But its not. They think they have a license to sin. One needs to repent.
What they don’t know, is any kind of sin, separates us from God.
BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE: NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR: BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR. ISAIAH 59:1-2. KJV.
Lets look at this scripture in more detail. You pray, but you do not get answers. Why? We need to all ask ourselves that.
Look at that second sentence. It states; But your iniquities have separated between you and your God. Wow! That tells me, you gave your heart to Christ, believing you were saved. But your iniquities have separated you between you and your God. Your God! Look at it! So that tells me, you have sin, on your record. In the book of life.
Here, in Exodus 32:33 it tells us:
AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK.
WOW, double Wow! That book the Lambs book of life, always determines if your name is written in blood, by the blood of Jesus. If you neglect it, abuse it, treat your salvation shabbily, then yea, your name can be removed. Blotted out. Look up that key word, in a King James. (another reason to promote the King James to find truth)
The thing is, and lately, I seem to be in a few of these battles with so called brothers and sisters in Christ, they debate it. They argue it, they bring up other scriptures, that try to contradict the truth, but it can be lost folks. Salvation can be taken away…..
There is no fear of God. To many. We are to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling. Fear of who? God Almighty, who holds the keys to heaven and earth.
WHEREFORE, MY BELOVED, AS YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, NOT IN MY PRESENCE ONLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE IN MY ABSENCE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING. Phillipians 2:12 KJV.
Many, have the misconception, that works don’t cut it. But it does. Work it out! Faith without works is dead.
FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO. JAMES 2:26.
A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation or battle with a man, who did not believe he could lose salvation. He went back and forth, in the conversation. But what I noticed was that he always made it about him. Or “I” of this, or that.
And I was trying to get him to see that, yes, salvation could be lost. But, I believed he was saved now, but he just could not grasp that, the conversation was also about others. He made it all about him, and thats what the devil did. Self, I, me, me, me….Thats dangerous, when we cannot see beyond me.
You see, those scriptures above talks about works. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling of God. But we are also commanded, to warn others. Works, is just telling someone, don’t take your salvation for granted.
Anyway, after much patience, because this guy was getting on my nerves, he realized, what I was trying to tell him. That it was not just about him, but about others, who may think their salvation is in tact, but they are lost, they are “Backsliders” and they are in spiritual jeopardy if they die, because they would have unrepented sin.
He finally admitted, and I am paraphrasing his words. “I was lost, then I was saved, then I was lost, and saved again. But now I know I am saved.”
Many, have the misconception, that because they were saved, that it guarantees salvation, even if they sin. And that is wrong, that is dangerous, and that is really a deception from the devil.
Look, I can say this as a testimony. I was saved at an early age. But I had no sense or value, of how precious my salvation was. So I sinned. If I had died, before I repented, I truly believe, I would have lost my salvation. Once saved is not always saved.
And its dangerous to believe that, or to influence others that it is safe.
We are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33, and I ask please look at it from a King James. It tells us, about the righteous. And if he commits iniquity, all his righteousness, will be forgotten, and he will die.
Die! We are to have life eternally with Christ. Christ, died and abolished only the law of sin, and death.
So many have this misconception, that grace will cover it. That keeping the “law” of God is not necessary. That is so wrong, if God commands it, or even says it. It is LAW! Don’t question it, don’t reason it, don’t ponder on it. OBEY GODS LAW!
No. It only covers it, if you repent. If you have sinned. Do not misinterpret grace, or Gods goodness. He is not mocked.
When I was young, I was a soul winner. I have always tried to be a soul winner, but I believe God is directing me to try and save the righteous, who think they are saved, but are lost, because they do not know King James truth. They have no fear of God. They do not repent.
Its so sad, we have a battle, a big challenge, because so many are misled, misunderstanding, misinterpreting scripture, because they don’t use the truth, and the holiness of a King James bible.
It makes me sad.
In Ezekiel 33, that chapter I ask that you read, it tells us to warn people.
If we do we set ourselves free. I see it myself, the boldness, God gives me.
And though, my brothers and sisters think I am judging them, that is just a lie from the devil.
I tell them this truth, because I love them because Jesus loves them. Its not judging. Its warning. And warning is love. Just like Ezekiel 33 tells us to do.
Just my thoughts, but I want to be a soul winner, for the righteous, who are lost.
All I know, is if we clear the slate, by even daily repenting, we can ensure our salvation.
