If you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you. And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.
The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship. Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.
Let me try and explain what this is first. So you can understand.
A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal. Its someone, who has a whorish spirit. I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain. Very self-centered. Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others. But behind the scenes, pits one against another. Instigating….
AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD. I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES.
The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim. Never accountable. Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft. Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties. Not good.
AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU? AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY? II KINGS 9:22. KJV.
All of these things God abhors. You may see all or some of these characteristics.
The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you. As Christ knew. Someone, who will not be loyal to you. Someone who will be a false witness. Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you. Someone who will be used by the devil.
AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM. MARK 14:10 KJV.
The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ. So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.
AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU? AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER. MATTHEW 26:15 KJV.
Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ. He gave Christ the Judas kiss. As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you. Accept it.
BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS? LUKE 22;48 KJV.
But Judas was not accountable. He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.
Pride…. One can see that. Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable.
I think you might get the drift of this. So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.
But yet you do. Or you can fall victim of that. Love can cause one to sin. Love can make one blind. Even in friendship.
This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol. And you have to be careful of this. Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.
Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you. But to God. If you only knew how jealous God is. How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.
Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know. The hard way. If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will. And God knows that.
God is not mocked. We reap what we sow. And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy? Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ. When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.” See KJV Proverbs 17:17
And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.
THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS. EXODUS 23:32 KJV.
Social media is very revealing, about folks. And their friends….
If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan? Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them. Because you like that? Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves. Yet God hates it. No thank you….I would pass on that quickly. And I have….
NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS. AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION; AND SHE REPENTED NOT. REVELATION 2:20-21 KJV.
Anyway…. Its easy for me to forgive someone. To extend grace. But when that grace is not extended in return. It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ. Because Christ is love. And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.
All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit. This can destroy friendships. And thats besides the point. Know more then anything that gets God very angry. His wrath will be revealed.
So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties. I am older now, but wiser. I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.
But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends. And it scares me. To trust folks any more. Anyway….
Sin can come in somehow. But somethings can break chief friends.
A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE: AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.
PROVERBS 16:28 KJV.
Loyalty to God must be evident with me. This is one thing I strive to give my Lord. And I long from friends. So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone. God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again. He is my example. Not people.
And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot. That I cannot just justify as o.k.
If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God. And depart. Have nothing to do with people like that.
So one can now stay away, loyal to God. It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.
Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit. Pray about it. If you see signs, this could be God showing you. Take heed.
And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself. Then don’t hesitate. Make it right with God, by repenting. And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.
Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas. Their endings were not good. And one should avoid that. Look it up. In a King James bible. And again, I will reiterate. It has to be a King James for holiness. Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.
Maybe this is how you will learn. By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit. I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus. Who calls us to be holy.
And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people. I do wish people the best. I have no ill feelings toward anyone. Thats not who I am in Christ. No matter how hurt I have been. I pray, God bless people. Lessons of life. But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning. God sees. And I know that. So I say all of this in friendship and love. But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.
ISAIAH 54:17 NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN. THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD. ISAIAH 54:17
Holy King James word.
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,
I feel led to talk about sin, right now. One does not hear much about it any more.
Even from the pulpit, sadly. It will pollute you.
But I feel led to write about it, because many even in the body of Christ, think you are judging them, if you bring it up. They get angry, indignant, they think you are judging them.
Yet, according to Ezekiel 33, from my King James Bible, it says, we are called to warn, and warn, even the “righteous.”
When I read that word, righteous, I assume it to mean, a Christian, who thinks they are saved, but they are allowing sin, into their life, their soul, and physical body.
God tells us to be Holy, for He is holy. And sometimes, I just shake my head, because I see many think their salvation, is a license to sin, and thats just plain wrong.
FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD: YE SHALL THEREFORE SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, AND YE SHALL BE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY: NEITHER SHALL YE DEFILE YOURSELVES WITH ANY MANNER OF CREEPING THING THAT CREEPETH UPON THE EARTH. Leviticus 11:44. KJV.
Beware of sinful creeps. Just saying….
Folks, in our King James bibles, it tells us, God will not hear us, if sin is there. And again, I emphasize get a King James bible, that is holy, and not corrupt. You won’t get the truth, the anointing, the holiness from a bible that is corrupted. So get a King James bible.
But just know, any kind of sin, will hurt us. And thats the part, that grieves me, to know, sin separates us from Him. From His sweet fellowship, His counsel, His love, and friendship, if we choose to sin.
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 59:2 KJV.
Have you ever tried to worship God, but worship does not come out of your spirit? You feel cold, you feel numb? Remember God is a spirit, and those that worship Him, worship Him in spirit and truth. If you have so much sin, in you that “pollutes” your spirit, your faith will be off, and so will your worship. I wrote “How To Have Faith.”
I learned these principles, that I write about in my book, because I know there are differences. And sin, will stop it all, sin, will blind you, sin will make you have a “dirty” spirit. Check yourself, do you allow sin, that pollutes you?
I have grown enough, to know that I want no sin in my life. See, we reap what we sow. And spiritually, those sins, when un-repented. Dirty our spirits. They dirty our souls, they dirty our physical bodies, and our minds. Think about those who sin, and how filthy their minds are. You don’t want that, you don’t want to reap sin, in your life, you don’t want anything that separates you from God.
I could write a long list, of what sin does, because it comes from the enemy, and it is meant, to kill, steal, and destroy the life God has given you. Thats the enemies goal. And if the enemy, can take your crown, before Salvation, he will tempt you. But if you give your heart to Christ, and repent, truly, and (I recommend daily repentance) you can see yourself change, and grow more to His image. You can run from temptation.
When I say they actually dirty the body. Think about sexual diseases. Think about diseases that cause cancer, or destroy parts of the body. Smoking, drinking, drugs, open doors to illnesses, that one will reap, if they pursue that. We need to teach this to our youth.
So when I see a Christian open a door, and suggest its o.k. to drink or take drugs, they are not seeing how it can hurt someone, even others, who reap that. They are contributing to sin, and a Christian, should never do that.
I suppose this is why I pray, even now, to not be a part of those things, because I see, how all of these things led to my own brokenness, and because of sin. I reaped much of that. Yet, I was pruned by Christ. Whom He Loves He corrects. And believe me, He corrected me. And His correction is not always pleasant. See, God is not mocked. But I reaped what I sowed.
And I am bearing fruit for Him now, because I see the error of my ways. I repented, and I still do. Even when I think of my sins. One can have a new beginning, even where you are. Even if you are old.
Even if you are taking your last breath, because then, at least you are promised eternity. But you cannot have it, if sin is there, or its un-repented.
I am not holier then thou. I say all of this to you, with a very humble heart. I know where I came from. I know what I was delivered from. I know, where I have been. So when I tell you this, I don’t tell you to judge you. Because as the scripture says, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. I know this, it grieves me to know I sinned. To know, I had such poor judgment, especially in my youth. I made mistakes that were sins, that haunt me for the rest of my life. But when the devil does that, I remind him, NOW who I am in Christ. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. Read Romans 8:1 King James.
Yet…. I know, I am not worthy on my own. But only by the blood of Jesus. That cleansed me. But when you see what He did on the cross for you, when you see, who you were, and now changed, it does make you see, one should not play with their salvation. Your salvation, is not a license to sin.
But just know this, even though it may feel like judging, its warning. And we are called to even warn the righteous. Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James, over and over again. Because the righteous, could mean someone who thinks they are saved.
And I see so many in the body of Christ, play with it, they do not fear God, or work it out, with fear and trembling. And I don’t care what folks say, about works. But faith without works is dead. You need to work it out. You don’t take it for granted.
EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE. JAMES 2:17 KJV.
Let me just say this, and try and make this somewhat short and sweet. Sin, stops your blessings, the blessings God intends for you. Sin, clouds your mind, distorts truth, and will actually blind you. You will believe the delusion. And many in the body of Christ, even now, are delusional.
AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE. II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.
And this is hard to understand in some cases. But…one can reap sickness, or illness, if you continue in sin, and don’t repent. Don’t think you won’t, one will. This is why Christ, took those stripes, and by His stripes we are healed. He took the penalty, of our sins. See sin, brings curses, and thats another thing, you want to avoid, with all your being. There are many different curses. If you want to read my book on this, go to this link. You can order it on line, on Smashwords. There both of my books can be ordered on line.
All I can say, is repent, even daily, keep your robes white, keep oil in your lamp, live for Christ, get a good King James bible, pray. And stay away from sin, stay away from the enemy.
Submit to God, resist the enemy, and he will flee. Your job, is to stay close to God, stay away from sin, and live the best life you can with your salvation in tact.
I hope this helps someone.
Blessings, and love in Christ,
I just long to linger at the throne of my Lord. Sometimes, the cares we have bring us to His throne. And when you seek Him, with all your heart, and soul, with tears, He listens. He brings hope and joy to your soul.
Go to His throne, friends. Listen to His voice. KJV, truth.
You go to your King James bible. Open it, read it, obey God….
See, His sheep, know His voice, and to another they will not follow. You have to know Fathers voice. You have to know, that you know. So you can grow, so you can discern, between good and evil. The Holy Spirit, will guide you, but you have your part in obedience. King James obedience.
THE FEAR OF THE LORD TENDETH TO LIFE: AND HE THAT HATH IT SHALL ABIDE SATISFIED: HE SHALL NOT BE VISITED WITH EVIL. Proverbs 19:23. KJV.
Fearing God, is a very healthy thing, spiritually. Let me repeat that, “fearing God is a very healthy thing, spiritually.” See, in order to grow, there has to be obedience. And it actually can begin, by the Bible you use, and choose.
People don’t see that, and they are deceived. By the language, by the archaic sounds. They want to understand, God on their terms. Not His. But that is disobedience. II Peter 1:19-21 tells us we have a “sure” word. It tells us scripture is not up for “private interpretation.” Look it up, in a King James. This is how you will grow. Don’t be lazy with your spiritual growth.
But common sense, tells you, that if these old scriptures, from the King James, have commandments not to change it, add to it, delete it, that means, its the word to use. The KJV has been in existence for over 400 years, and there are many scriptures, passages, that warn about word. But if you are using something that has been corrupted, changed, added, deleted, you will miss it.
So obedience, needs to be followed. These three scriptures have the warnings, already, and that should put the fear of God in you, to see. To obey. To use the right Bible, and that is a King James bible.
Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19.
And I implore you look them up, yourself, in a King James. That last verse in Revelations, warns one can be denied access to the Holy city. It warns, their name can be removed from the book of life. That means the throne of God. This is very serious business, in the eyes of God, and I believe, their will be the wrath of God revealed for those who disregard this Holy Truth.
Friends, I know, that I know this, and if I can get people to see this, then I am doing my job. But you have your job, even as I bring this to you attention.
Obey God. Obey Him, so you can truly hear His voice. So you can grow. Go to the throne of God, by using a King James bible.
Blessings, in Christ,
PLEASE NOTE: I CORRECTED SCRIPTURE ABOVE, YOU MAY HAVE SEEN IT AS DEUTERONOMY 45:2, THAT IS NOT THE SCRIPTURE. IT IS DEUTERONOMY 4:2. THANKS.
Sometimes, there are no second chances with God, and people. As I write this, I sense a bit of anger. And so I want to be careful with this. For the glory of God.
I just see it so clearly right now. I just see, how life, the life God gives to us, should not be wasted. I have wasted life. In so many ways. I did not know better. But, maybe, what I can share with you, may bring insight.
And its not over, till God says its over. But when it is over, there are no second chances, folks, with God or with people.
Sometimes we just have to see it, and grasp the moment. For some, I pray, you grasp this.
For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. Proverbs 4:2. King James….
See God is giving us good doctrine, to guide us, to teach us, to instruct us, and show us who He is. That I see as King James word, but some folks, waste their time, using corrupt doctrine, and they forsake HIS laws, that tell us don’t change His word. Because it is holy word. And corrupt word, does not have the same affect or anointing.
Or if one gets lazy, and does not seek God, what does that say? Thats pride. Thats saying, I can do it on my own. Thats just wrong.
The world, has denied God, so are we going to go with the world? I hope not. See the enemy of God, wants you to miss it. And there are lots of ways, the enemy distracts us. Get close to God, so you get another chance.
But you have to see, what kind of relationship do you have with God. Are you working on it, with prayer, with love, with fear of God?
Or….If the indication, is there by the way we treat people, what does that say, about the way we treat God?
If we are not loyal to God, in obedience, love, respect, honor, yes fear of God, how can we have these attributes toward others?
I do get angry, when I see Christian leaders, treat God like an ATM. With their phony prosperity message, that does not call out for the lost. That does not treat salvation as a priority for this lost world. I do get angry, when people are misled, by using unholy, corrupted Bibles. I do get angry, when I see, how the devil has deceived so many.
But I cannot turn that anger, into hate. I cannot, be destructive. I must seek the peace of God, that surpasses understanding. But I still see the corruption. So, I am at a place, where I am being quiet, and trying to hear Gods voice. But I have my part. In fear of God. It makes me see, though…. that we have to do something, we have to do our part. Why do I care?
Why? Because I see the difference. Been there, done that. I see, my own mistakes. I see, my own faults. I see…. And sadly as well… I see….our lost world.
Because people don’t have fear of God, or what He commands us. And those chances, my friend, are dwindling. Life is not forever on earth!
All I can do, is use my own life, as the reference. And when I see, yes, the many mistakes I made in life, and even in my Christian life. I grieve! Yes, I grieve. For not seeing it….
I pray, there is more time for me, to serve God. I pray to make it up to Him. I pray, to be fulfilled…. I pray, to make it right with Him, and others. But I have to see my own mistakes, by His grace, and correct them, while there is time on this earth.
To grow, to fulfill my calling in Him. He has brought me to a place, even right now, where yes, I fear God. Because I see how fragile, I can be.
Recently, I have been challenged in a few things, some that I will not elaborate here, but I am challenged, but when your health is off, and you know it, you know, that yes, you could leave this earth.
So, what do you do?
You try and get right with God, is my thought. Because someday, I will, and you will, stand before Him.
I read, a tweet, on Jim Caviezels page, that said something to the affect, “Live life, like its your last day on earth.”
So, my thought was, if thats the case, then I better live, my life, repenting daily. Walking in fear of God daily, trying to walk in love with people, daily. Trying to Love God with all I got. I am not perfect. I have my faults.
But I notice, I can extend grace to some, but they don’t extend it back to me. And I have noticed, yes, I have asked God for this, and that, but He does not always give me what I ask. Believe me, there are many lost dreams, I have had.
But, I am not going to deny God. I am not going to reject Him, just because He does not give me what I want. Because God has given me grace, my whole life through…
But people, will deny God, and others…..
People, so prideful, so mean spirited, get these attitudes, that treat life, and others shabbily. Just because they don’t get their way with people, and with God, and thats wrong.
See, I do have a history. And when I look at that history, I realize, all the good things God has done for me. I realize, I have missed it so many times. With Him, and with people.
My own personal relationships, I admit, in some, I have missed it. Right now, I may have a couple of friends, but sometimes, I see, its only friendship, when I please them. But if I don’t please them, they are gone…..
Do I treat God like that? I pray not. I have my immediate family, who I cherish. Who I thank God for. But when I look at the past, and I see, my own broken family and who they were, and the chances they also had, with me, as I was growing up.
I pray, to break curses, or cycles, where, people I loved were only there for a moment. In the good, and the bad, and when they left, there were no second chances. No matter how much I longed for that, I did not get those chances.
So what has all of this taught me, as I vent here? That friends, God is teaching us, reaching out to us, through this journey called life. But you can’t stay stuck. You gotta grow. You have to change, to be fulfilled.
Stop looking at God, as an ATM. Stop looking at Him, as if He has to do something, but you don’t think what can I do, to please Him, or serve Him. This is where the growth stops, if you don’t try and please Him.
Stop thinking about self. Self, is just another indicator of who the enemy is. See, we can get so preoccupied, with self, in that spirit, that we miss our own callings.
We miss, how God can use us. We miss, love. See chances, are given, but if we misuse them, abuse them, abuse God, and others, we fail.
I pray, to share this, with love, but yes again, I am kind of angry. But it makes me realize, every day is a gift from God. And my gift in return to Him, is what I do with it.
See, His sacrifice for me on that cross was too great. I cannot abuse it, by going back to sin. I cannot abuse it, by not fearing the consequences of reaping what I sow. I cannot treat people, like they don’t matter. Even if they treat me like I don’t matter.
Do you see, what I am trying to say here?
I just realize, and pray, that we all wake up. Christ could return any moment. Or our last breath, could happen at any moment.
Stop playing church. Stop playing sanctimonious. Or stop playing dumb. Stop playing with life. Stop denying God and people.
Because you know what, we all do sin, we all do come short of His glory. Yes, I hate sin, I hate what it did to me, and stopped my own blessings as I reaped the consequences…
But sometimes, when I look at someone, I am reminded, that I once was where they were. I had filthy rags. I am nobody better, then anybody else.
So, all I know, is though…
I don’t want to grieve my Lord Jesus. With religion, (rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, or groups, or even by myself, trying to do things my way.) Or my way, which leads to hell, if you read my past post.
I just don’t want to miss it any more, to conclude this. Yes, I pray for more chances with my Lord, and people. But I don’t want to miss it. I don’t want to just take things for granted. Because we never know. We just don’t know……
Sometimes, you have to walk by yourself. And you are not walking alone. If you make sure, by repentance, that Jesus is walking with you. You are walking with Jesus. Just don’t let go of His hand, on this earth, so you can make sure, He will walk you into heaven.
To conclude this: Folks, don’t let time go by without making it right with God. Repentance, I have learned, with fear of God, is the best thing, I can do for my spiritual health. Even on a daily basis.
With people, apologize, if you need to, see again, its not worth pettiness, or pride, because sometimes there are no second chances. Please, if you don’t get anything else from my message today. Make it right with God. Make it right with people. For your own sake. Please.
I guess, I am just thinking of those who wanted to do this, and that, and did not get that chance, because they did not make Christ, Lord and savior. I think of that sick person, who wishes they had served God, instead of denying Him. So they could have had physical health, and good spiritual health. I think of others, who are headed for hell, because they did deny Him. And let money, or sin, take priority.
I think of the broken friendships and family relationships, that could have been fulfilled, if someone had just said, I am sorry.
But then it was too late, with God, and others….
I just think, I have to share truth. I have to share His truth. I don’t want Him to say, what did you do Elena, with the chances I gave you?
I don’t want that to be me, or you. You see, I never want to hear from Him. I never knew you.
Read Matthew 7, from a King James, but this verse says it all. How strange, this is the second time, God led me to give that to someone, and now, I see it for myself as well, more then ever….
AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY. Matthew 7:23 King James.
You don’t want Him to say that to you. Or even think it.
Friends, think of the blessings you have, and then do something with it, and about it, for God, for others. You have your part.
Hope this helps somebody today.
Blessings, and love, in Christ,
Have you ever heard of the song, called “My Way”? It was a very popular song, when I was growing up, in the sixties, seventies, etc. I think Paul Anka wrote it. But old blue eyes, Frank Sinatra made it very popular. And I think even Elvis Presley sang it.
So, people would be singing it, but the words are very deceptive, in guiding us, because we can get mislead and try and do things our way, and that way, is a road to hell. I wonder if they know this? Even Paul Anka, who is still alive. It would be nice, if what I wrote, now, would bring him closer to God to see the difference. To know not to do things his way, but the way of Christ.
Well, the reason, I am writing about it, is because as me and my husband were chatting about doing things our way, and seeing the difference, I told him the things, I learned doing things “my way” is the road to hell.
See, I always have to use my life, as the parallel, between what Christ has taught us, and what I have done. And I grew up trying to do things my way. I did have a rebellious spirit, and nature. I did, get stubborn, and I did not grasp who I could be in Christ. At an early age. Even though, I was taught about Christ at an early age. I still tried to do things my way.
I have had poor judgment in things, and when I look back, it grieves me. But why? Because I tried to do things my way. The results, were in many ways, not fruitful. Not good, not fulfilling, in the spirit, to what I could have been. And we do reap what we sow. See, when you get older, you only have your life to look at, and if you see, and realize what you have done, you can make it right, if you make Christ, Lord and savior, and do things His way.
When any of us, leave Christ out of the equation, because He is the way, the truth, and life, we miss it. I know, because without Jesus, we are truly living life our way.
Thats nothing to be proud of. I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what successes, you think you have, that actually may lead to more pride, thinking, you are this, that, and the other, you are not fulfilled. Unless, you make Christ Lord and savior. And do things His way.
Look at this King James scripture real close, and again, I put emphasis, on the King James scriptures, because the others have been tampered with, corrupted, and are misleading. So don’t look at those verses. Look at what Christ, has made holy, and use word, that is Holy, as “His Way.”
But this scripture reminds us, Christ reminds us:
JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME. JOHN 14:6. HOLY KING JAMES BIBLE.
Even many, who teach Christ as Lord, and savior, and I pray, this is never me, but, you can form a sense of “religion” (rules, regulations, traditions, rituals, that are made by men, and groups) and you can depart from the true spirit, of who you are meant to be in Christ, and fail. By religion. Develop your relationship.
But, you will fail. By doing things your way. Even in the name of the Lord. Because you are doing things your way, by the spirit, and not by Christ, as His spirit, as the guide.
We have to look deeper at our souls, and the fruit, and we have to identify, with the help of God, to see; Are we doing things our way, or as Christ as the way, the truth, and life? I get those checks often in my spirit, and in fact, last night, I had a strange dream of sin.
And when I woke up, I bound it, immediately, I repented, and I cried out to God, and prayed, that sin, is not in my heart. And if it is there, I ask God to remove it. See, sin, is a departure of who God is, and His ways, and whatever it is, you may choose to do your way, is not His way, and His truth, and His life. That you could have. I never want to be away from God, I remember when I was in sin, and those were the darkest, most depressing days of my life.
You don’t want sin, in your life. Sin, will mislead you. Sin, will corrupt your soul. Sin, will destroy, the life, you could have with God, if you choose sin, and choose to do things your way, over doing things His way. Hell on earth is possible, I know. It will affect your thinking to think you are right, and Gods ways are wrong. I have seen some folks, think like this, and no wonder the Bible calls them fools.
The bottom line, is and this should give you the “fear of God” which is very healthy, is that we all will stand before God. Let me repeat that” WE ALL WILL STAND BEFORE GOD. And if you think you get away with things, now, you won’t get away with it, when you stand before God. When you die. The books will be opened, and everything you allowed, you did, thought of, will be revealed. That scares me. Because of Gods judgment. His ways. Which are of excellence.
And I guess, I have grown enough, though, now, to see the difference. Which I did not, but I realize, if I had not brought it all to the obedience of Christ, if I had continued to live life my way, I might not even be alive right now. I had some very destructive tendencies, even in my health, that I thank God, these things were not meant to destroy me, because I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior. And I was delivered from my way. By accepting His way. No weapon formed against me, prospered. Read Isaiah 54:17 King James.
See life, is a journey, and you can grow, you can be the best you can be in God, by His ways. But if you depart from those ways, you become your own enemy. You can get so full of yourself, and puffed up, because the deception is there folks. Don’t fool yourself. There is a devil, and his main goal, is to steal your soul. Take your crown. He wants to corrupt you, he wants you to miss Gods ways, and do things the way of him, which will lead you right to hell. You have to see it. If you don’t you will only have yourself to blame.
This is why, submitting to God is so important. Bringing it to the obedience of Christ. Because if you submit to God, you are telling God, I want your way, not my way. When you see you need to bring it all to the obedience of Christ, you are telling Him, Lord, I love you so much, that I don’t want anything or to do anything, that displeases you. Here are some King James scriptures that will enlighten your thoughts on this, about doing things His way.
SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU. DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS YE SINNERS; AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS , YE DOUBLE MINDED. JAMES 4:7-8. KING JAMES.
See how important submitting to God is? When you do so, it is easier, to resist the devil so he can flee from you. Getting close to God, makes Him closer to you, so you can be cleansed, and get rid of that double minded thinking. You get rid of the devil.
Also please read I Peter 5:5, which talks about submitting to one another, but see the end of this in this verse…..BE CLOTHED WITH HUMILITY: FOR GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD AND GIVETH GRACE TO THE HUMBLE. If we are humble, we know God will give us grace. But He resists the PROUD. Don’t be proud. If you see that in you, repent and run to the throne of God, and ask Him for help.
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. HOLY KING JAMES.
In that verse, above, do we see that doing things our way, exalts itself against the knowledge of God? Thats dangerous, and disobedience. That is doing things our way, that leads to hell.
I Peter 1:2 ELECT ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD THE FATHER, THROUGH SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT, UNTO OBEDIENCE AND SPRINKLING OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST: GRACE UNTO YOU, AND PEACE, BE MULTIPLIED.
Obedience, and the sprinkling of the blood, sanctifies us, and then there is grace, and peace given to us. Its actually multiplied. And it is. Because there is no peace to the wicked. Look that verse up. On your own. In a King James bible.
And that my friend is a beautiful thing. Knowing what Christ did for us. And to want to be obedient to Him. In His sight, I am sure. But you have to repent, you have to make sure, you are trying to do things His way, not yours. This is where the discernment will come in by the Holy Spirit. Bringing everything to the obedience of Christ. It will teach you, how to do things His way. It will prompt you, remind you, give you wisdom, and guidance, so that you can understand, that in order to please Him, and fulfill your own life, it must be by doing things His way.
Get rid of that stinking thinking! Believe me we all can get it, and when its there, its pride. You don’t want that. Pride can be the downfall of many. But we have to be mindful of who Christ is.
The other day, I got into a strange conversation with someone, who was trying to say, I was rejecting word, when all I was saying is look to Jesus. The word wasn’t even there, it was implying about word....Look at Him. See word, if its not King James word, can be misinterpreted in the spirit, but if we always look at who Jesus is, there is no deception. And this may be too deep to comprehend by some, but God knows our hearts. He knows what we are capable of. So if we are just obedient to Him, in small ways, including by using only King James words, we can grasp the rest of it.
I feel very humbled this morning, as I write. I feel though, very thoughtful, to want to please God, to want to do things His way. See, doing things His way, always produces fruit. Good fruit. And even as I write, I realize, I want to please God. I don’t want sin, that is produced by doing things my way. I want the way of Christ. Because He is the way, the truth, and life. And no one can come to God, but through Christ.
So, as I close, let me offer the solution. Repent to God, for your sins. Make Christ your Lord and savior. Remind yourself what Christ did on the cross for you. Get a King James bible, read it daily. Confess to others, Christ is your Lord and savior. Live for Christ, since He died for you. Because He made the way, for you, in truth, for your life, you can be promised eternal salvation. Don’t forget to repent even daily. See we blow it. I know. But keep trying. Through Christ as the way.
Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez
