WHEN YOU DON’T AGREE WITH CHRISTIAN LEADERS IN POLITICS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2030

Please look at that scripture in the above photo.  Look very closely.

When I was growing up, I was warned.  In matters of decorum, you don’t talk about politics, and you don’t talk about religion.

Well I threw that adage out the window a long time ago.  Because whether people want to agree or not, we need to see whats going on in our country.  And we need to talk about it.  With each other.

And the strange thing, is that politics are affected by the lack of wisdom, from someone, who does not have fear of God, in such matters.  I am not wincing words here.  You do not want to be deceived.  

I have seen enough in this election, to make me cringe, that Christian leaders who should have wisdom, and understanding of Gods ways, and truth are not supporting it.  They are not vocal about it.  

And in fact, are doing and saying things, that are the opposite of Gods truth, and are greatly influencing others.  They think because they have the forum, and the power, they can say, what they want, and not have any consequences, concerning that.  But they forget there is a judgment day for all of us.

Well that kind of endorsing, is wrong thinking on any Christians part.  Because we do all have a responsibility to know Gods truth, to know what God says in a matter, and not to align ourselves with someone, who should know better.  Or someone who purposely, disregards God, and His truth.

Politics are affected by these matters.  Now I don’t like using the word religion, because it always gives a connotation about a group, or a particular ideology.  But what I do refer it to, is to my relationship with Christ, that I have from my King James Bible, and prayer.  And yes, I look at the fruit of someone in politics.  Something Mr. Cruz, early in his campaign told us to look at.  That was wisdom.  Without, trying to enforce anything on anybody.

Bully tactics, are something, we should look at.  And avoid. Because well, it goes totally against who we are as Christians.  Christ, has never called us to enforce something on someone. He does not even take His word, and hit us on the head with it.  He gives us a choice.  Free will.  But if we do not choose Him, well we choose wrong.

Many of you may be like me, where you are disappointed, in who some of our Christian leaders are now a days…

You think they should not support or endorse someone who has shown time, and time again, fruit that is not Christ like.  To say the least.

Well, its time for you to stand up, where you are, with what you got.  Your King James Bible, which is truth, and not corrupted, and stand and make a stand for the Kingdom of God, and yes for your country.

I believe prayer, is something, we need to begin doing more of.  Myself included.  And to pray repentant.  Because more then ever, we are seeing the fruit of this in our country.  The sins, that we have allowed, over, and over again.  Including abortion.  But we do need to pray.  For Gods wisdom for our leaders, including those Christian leaders who let us down.  And we need to pray, for guidance, from God and yes forgiveness.

But, concerning Christian leaders who have displayed a parting of Gods truth.  I briefly want to say, when I feel that way, I am careful not to pray with them, or agree with them. You see, there is an anointing, that flows from the top and makes a covenant with someone in matters. This is why I would choose to have a Godly president, over someone who does not.

So when I see someone who is in the body of Christ choose someone, I don’t agree with, well that red alert or red flag is revealed. Its not that I don’t walk in love. Its not that I would even want to start an argument. Its a matter of choosing sides.

Gods side, and everything He says. Or what the enemy might choose.

You see, loyalty is very important to God.  Being right in His sight.  Its far more better then voting, against your conscience.

When we choose to align ourselves, even in prayer with someone, we do not agree with, what does that say to God?

Now we must, especially in these times, be careful, who we align ourselves with. We must ask God for wisdom.

I just think its wise, for myself anyway, not to align myself with someone, who has displayed in conversation or support, to someone who has gone against everything Christ has taught us. Either we obey God, or we don’t. Be careful who you pray with, and agree with.

Since, I cannot be a hypocrite, strange I got tested in this matter.  And what I have learned, even in this, is pray, people are not deceived.  Pray people get the blinders off of their eyes.  Because the enemy will use people, even people, who have a form of light, and they are true darkness.  Remember the enemy was light.  He can transform himself.  Pray you are not deceived.  Pray for those who are.  

Be careful to be prayerful in matters, more then ever for our country.  I just feel the Lord prompting me more to work on my own love walk.  To avoid strife.  To take on Christ more in my communications, and to avoid arguments, that are just meant to be a snare, to my soul.

After hearing another Christian leader give an endorsement, this is my thought:

Plz don’t tell me you cannot judge someone’s heart. After they have spoken evil! Did we forget what Christ taught us? Are we going to let the blind lead us?

I FOLLOW CHRIST NOT MAN!

“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Matthew 15:14 KJV

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Luke 6:45 KJV

In conclusion:  I just feel led to also remind you to be in prayer for our country more so. To remind you, that you have the ability to be a vessel for the Lord.  To work on our love walk. To avoid the spirit of strife that comes from some who really have no sense of truth. Pray for people, but don’t strike up a friendship with, someone who really is friends with strife. Someone, who really just wants to argue. That kind of self confidence, is evil.  

Be careful friends, blessings, and love in Christ.  May God be glorified, and I believe in miracles.  For the United States of America. 

Elena Ramirez

MAKE NO FRIENDSHIP WITH AN ANGRY MAN; AND WITH A FURIOUS MAN THOU SHALT NOT GO: LEST THOU LEARN HIS WAYS, AND GET A SNARE TO THY SOUL. BE NOT THOU ONE OF THEM THAT STRIKE HANDS, OR OF THEM THAT ARE SURETIES FOR DEBTS. PROVERBS 22:24:26. KJV.

IF YOU HAVE FAITH AMERICA….

If you have faith America, you begin to bless God, because He blesses America….

If you have faith America. You pray for our nation. You pray for our Leaders. You pray…..

If you have faith America, you quit speaking defeat…..

You begin speaking victory. Knowing, you have power of life and death in your tongues. You are careful to speak life.

If you have faith America, you honor life, even the life of the unborn.

If you have faith America, you do not give place to the enemy, but you submit to God, resist the enemy, and he must flee.

If you have faith America, you are loyal to God and country, and to Americas allies.

If you have faith America, you make sure, you accept Jesus Christ as Lord, and savior.  You make sure, your salvation is in tact.  You make sure, you repent.  For tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  You have faith in Christ, because you see, He suffered for you to be saved, and no one else can do that for you.  

If you have faith America, you stand in the old ways. The ways of God, the ways of our forefathers. I stand on my King James Bible, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. And every amendment, that supports this.

If you have faith America, you walk in love, with one another. In this country, we are united.  Divided we fall.

If you have faith America, you honor the American flag. You honor, others, and their choices. You honor the veteran who fights and died for your rights. You honor, freedom of speech.

If you have faith America, you honor God and country.

If you have faith America, you embrace every truth, every commandment God gives us, as best to your ability. And if you cannot you repent to God.

Yes, America, we need to make some changes here, for good, not evil. We have to stand our ground. We have to see the error of our own ways, individually and as a nation. We have to seek God.

If we do not, we will not have faith. Its time to get faith….

THEN TOUCHED HE THEIR EYES, SAYING, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH BE IT UNTO YOU.

Matthew 9:29 KJV.

By Elena Ramirez

DISCLAIMER:  These are “Just my thoughts” today…..and I am grateful to God for the rights of free speech in America. That I do not take for granted, because I have faith.

I walk in faith, and those things I cannot change, I put in the hands of God almighty.  

They may not be your thoughts, but the beauty of it, is that in America, freedom is a gift, I don’t take for granted.  But I respect your right not to agree, but I don’t have to argue about it.  I don’t have to debate it.  

I have faith….

Wow, not an easy, feel good, soft and fuzzy title.  But I write them as the Lord gives them to me.

So why is the Lord using me, to write about something so strong?  That one could take offense to it.  Or it could open someones eyes.  Just the word “whore”, is vulgar, if you think about it.  

But it is biblical to talk about.  And this applies to men and women.  And even in other situations, besides adultery.  So here goes…

I WILL DO THESE THINGS UNTO THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST GONE A WHORING AFTER THE HEATHEN AND BECAUSE THOU ART POLLUTED WITH THEIR IDOLS.  EZEKIEL 23:30  KING JAMES.  

LEST THOU MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND, AND THEY GO A WHORING AFTER THEIR GODS, AND DO SACRIFICE UNTO THEIR GODS, AND ONE CALL THEE, AND THOU EAT OF HIS SACRIFICE.  EXODUS 34:15.  KING JAMES.  

AND THE SOUL THAT TURNETH AFTER SUCH AS HAVE FAMILIAR SPIRITS, AND AFTER WIZARDS, TO GO A WHORING AFTER THEM, I WILL EVEN SET MY FACE AGAINST THAT SOUL, AND WILL CUT HIM OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  LEVITICUS 20:6.  KING JAMES

So, one has to recognize it is a spirit.  And before it even manifests itself though, it can be taken to the cross, in repentance.  Before anything happens.  And I guess, thats what I want to warn you about.  I want you to recognize it, before, so you can avoid it.  So you can rebuke the whoring, adulterous spirit.  But only in the name of Jesus, can you find the power to do that.

I don’t want to judge anybody.  I have taken my own sins, to the cross, and prayed for forgiveness.  And even now, when I think about some of my own stupid sins, I still repent.

But, I do feel an obligation to write this, because there is a whorish, adulterous spirit, that can even come on the best, intending Christians.  Let alone, someone, who is naive, and does not know Gods truth.

Sin, its meant to kill, steal, destroy.  Its meant to stop your blessings.  Its meant to steal the promises from God from you.

Because if one sins, and does not repent, the enemy, has a “legal” right to harass you.  To steal your salvation.  To deceive you.  

I see messages, sometimes, that state grace, will make a way, when there is sin.  But they do not add, that inbetween, sin, and grace, there has to be repentance.  I don’t see it taught.  Maybe it is.

Anyway, we live in a very adulterous world.  Women, and men, showing their bodies, with no modesty, and what does this teach women, and men?  What does it teach our young girls?  Where is the outcry to say, cover yourselves up….don’t give it all away.  Leave the mystery.  But our society does not teach these things.  Just turn your television on, and you see it.

Respect yourself.  Because if you don’t the devil certainly will not.

And seldom, heard, do I hear it from the body of Christ, and Christian leaders.

Temptation comes….and when you most try to avoid it.  It will try anyway. But God says if we are obedient to him, he will not allow a temptation.

THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN;  BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE:  BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.  I Corinthians 10:13 King James only.

Remember Joseph, he ran, when the Pharoahs wife tried to seduce him.

We should run from sin.  We should teach our daughters and sons, the benefits of staying away from sin.  Including sexually transmitted diseases.

Now, just a clue here, but because we all want to be beautiful, smart, and blessed.  But what do we use our beauty for?  Is it to attract a mate?  Is it to show you are better then someone?  

Everything our society seems to point out is the beauty someone has?  But in doing so, they are losing something.  Its innocence.  Its modesty, its self-respect.  

Sometimes when I watch television programs where hollywood, or the music community has award shows.  I look at the womens clothing, and I think, golly, girl, put some clothes on.  You can catch a cold.  To say the least…..

You know what it brings, but a whorish, adulterous spirit.  That leads to sin.

People do not talk about sin hardly any more.  Maybe because we all do sin, according to scripture.  We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But, when you repent, and give your heart to God, you should make sure, you stay away from sin.  So you have to understand the spirits…whether of God, or the devil.  

Because you want your robes of righteousness, clean, when you stand before God.

That is your responsibility too.  We do not have an excuse to sin, when we accept Christ.  We don’t.

I just feel like I am talking to someone, who needs to see this.  You are so tempted right now.  You want to indulge in a whorish, adulterous spirit, and release yourself to someone.  Someone, who may even say they love you.  But if they loved you, they would marry you.  They would make it right before God.  By honoring you.  It would not be adulterous.  

Maybe you have an adulterous sin, just repent.  Ask God to cleanse you of your sins.  Turn from whoring ways.  But see it, before it is too late.  

If you do not honor yourself, no one else will.  You have to see that.

But what you don’t see, is that the devil, is trying to take your blessings, your future, your hopes, even your health away.

Repent for the thought, the desire, the longing, that holds you captive and just turn back to God.

Turn back, don’t go down that road.  It leads straight to hell.  So rebuke that whorish adulterous spirit.  Rebuke it, and get right with God.  Because it leads to other sins as well.  

Rebuke it, in Jesus name.  So your own true love can be revealed to God, and others.

KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?  BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATORS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND.   NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.  AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD.    I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 KING JAMES.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My thoughts anyway…..

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

I probably, could write a book on this.  Rebuking.  I have done enough fighting in my lifetime, physical and spiritual to know the tactics of the enemy.  

And the many ways, we should learn to rebuke.  

But, I will for now, just reserve that thought, until I get a prompting from God, or even my readers.  Because I will not move until God gives me direction.  I will not cast my pearls to swine,  and I will not do something this great, without the anointing.  I need to see the favor.  I need to see, the plan of God, directing me, or even someone to give me a book deal.  I need to see the anointing.  

So I rebuke, the obstacles that get in the way of that, even here.

And I guess that leads me to write this, because so many of us as Christians, do not realize the authority, we have in rebuking.  And I see it so clear lately.  

We need to learn…But we need to teach ourselves, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

We can get lost, in our own battles, in our own way of thinking.  If we do not utilize Christ as the way, the truth, and life.

Jesus did it.  He rebuked.

AND JESUS REBUKED THE DEVIL: AND HE DEPARTED OUT OF HIM: AND THE CHILD WAS CURED FROM THAT VERY HOUR. Matthew 17:18 King James

And he taught us, that we have an authority in Jesus name.  We have power from heaven above to speak things, into the natural atmosphere, but also into the supernatural atmosphere.

We can rebuke people, thoughts, and it just reminds me, that we do not always battle against flesh, and blood, but authorities in high places.  But the enemy uses people.  So rebuke someone, when it does not line up with the Holy word of God.  I do more then ever! Courage….

But I briefly, want to touch on rebuking in our minds.  You see the battle is in the mind.  What you think is usually the outcome.  And there is some negative thinking out there.  Again, I remind you from a few previous posts, I wrote even here, beware of subliminal messages.  They are all over.  That try to inundate you, to make you feel powerless.  People get some junk out there, and they think its true.  

But does it line up with the Holy word, of a King James bible?

When you have battles in the mind, doubt creeps in.  Fear comes in, IF you let it.  Do you see that key word… “IF”?

Aren’t you tired of being sick and tired?  Not seeing any progress.  I am no longer going to be tired, I am going to do something about it, even if it is just in my mind.  I am not going to give into defeat.  I am not going to NOT believe, so I can make  progress.  

I am not going to believe reports.  If my Bible says otherwise.   I am not.  My bible says, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, and I believe it.  

I KNOW THAT I KNOW WHO GOD IS, AND I REBUKE THE DEVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AND BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS I PLEAD!

You have to take captive these thoughts, whatever they may be.  You must bring them to the obedience of Christ.  You must if you want a victory…..

Get the mind of Christ….Not the worlds.  Not another Christian leader, not some pawn of the enemy.  Get the mind of Christ.  But you have to go for it, discipline yourself, and stop being lazy.  

I have faith, in God, truth is, I have not always have had faith in me.  But the beginning is knowing who He is.  Knowing He is not mocked.  How just a little doubt can make you go without.  So I rebuke, doubt.  

I rebuke anything that tries to overwhelm me in my thinking.  I rebuke it.  I kick it away, like a tin can, and say, with the power of God, that tells me I can remove mountains be gone!  This gives me confidence, because greater is He that is in me, then he that is in the world.  

I am not going to give you a books worth of thought, but a seed here.  Which again, may grow into a book.  We will see…

But be mindful of your thoughts.  Be mindful to claim holy King James word.  Be mindful of your words, that stop the progress.  Be mindful of how you treat people.  Or even God….He is not mocked.  He hates pride, but lifts up the humble.  So be careful how you rebuke.  Be careful love is in it….Love of God first!

Be mindful, to obey God, in your prayer, by knowing how to rebuke, remember, Christ told us, whatsoever we bind on earth, will be bound.  Whatsoever we release in his name, will be released.  When you are in that state of sadness, depression, defeat, whatever, rebuke it! 

In the name of Jesus.  

Start taking your authority.  Be bold, be courageous, don’t wimp out!  Don’t have a pity party!  Pick yourself up by your boot straps, put on your armor of God, and rebuke in the name of Jesus!  LEARN!

I humbly admit, I don’t know it all…but I know who God is.  And I know, He can teach me, He has.  But you have to want to learn.  Stop walking around like a zombie.  Stop, just accepting defeat, as the way.  Its not the way of Christ…..

You have an assignment, look up King James scriptures on the word REBUKE.  And then meditate on them, memorize them, gain strength, hide them in your heart for the time you need them…..

 

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO SATAN, THE LORD REBUKE THEE, O SATAN, EVEN THE LORD THAT HATH CHOSEN JERUSALEM REBUKE THEE;  IS NOT THIS A BRAND PLUCKED OUT OF THE FIRE?  ZECHARIAH 3:2 KING JAMES.  

PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON, OUT OF SEASON, REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE.  II TIMOTHY 4:2 KING JAMES.

AND DAVID WENT OUT TO MEET THEM, AND ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, IF YE BE COME PEACEABLY UNTO ME TO HELP ME, MINE HEART SHALL BE KNIT UNTO YOU:  BUT IF YE BE COME TO BETRAY ME TO MINE ENEMIES, SEEING THERE IS NO WRONG IN MINE HANDS, THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS LOOK THEREON, AND REBUKE IT.  I CHRONICLES 12:17.  KING JAMES

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

Playing the race card, makes you a racist.  And if you play that card, don’t be surprised, if the door swings back and hits you.  

Sadly, we look at someone who is a racist, and we hate, the injustice of it.  Usually, it is because someone, who is mean spirited, and hateful, that does terrible things to others.  Because of their race.  Do you see the full circle of it?  It causes hate.  Which is not good.  

Well, the sad thing, is when you start demanding your rights, because of your race.  And you pull out that race card.  Whether good, or bad, for your race, it is the same principle.  It makes you a racist.  I don’t care, what color you are.  That makes you a racist.

Hollywood, right now, is having a boycott.  During the Academy Awards.  By two famous, married actors.  And other high profile personalities.  Because of their race.  Because they did not get recognized.  Did you notice I am not mentioning them by their race?

I am not in hollywood.  I don’t play by those politics.  Or rules of engagement.  But, my goodness, what a gifted actor he is, and what a beautiful woman she is.  And they have had more opportunities, then me, or even the average person.  

I have always fought discrimination.  But in a different way.  By trying to make myself a better person.  By being a Christian.  By learning the characteristics and ways of my God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus.

I am Hispanic. The stereo types of my nationality, of my race, have always put me at a disadvantage, when it comes to ignorant people.  From looking at you, to see if you only speak Spanish.  Or stereo type you by wearing a sombrero, or whatever.  When people even address, you by your name, and tell you, if you are “legal” you should vote for a certain person.  

This just happened to me yesterday.  Where I was in a discussion, on a political post.  For Ted Cruz.  And I called that person out, and I gave them a piece of my mind.  I write out conversations often to record my quotes, and thoughts, and this is what I said in this one.:

“Go somewhere else, another country!  With that discrimination, that is just like “the candidate you support running for office.”  But how dare you tell me this by my name!  Let me inform you, educate you.  You moron.  I am an American.  Fourth generation. That means my ancestors were Americans by birth.  It also means I am probably more American because of my indigenous roots.  This is what is wrong with your candidates agenda and fools that follow that kind of agenda.  You are prejudiced, and it shows.  I have nothing further to say to your lack of class and intelligence.  Have a nice day.”  

My response, and I can say it myself.  Sounds harsh.  Maybe not even the Christian way.  I am a Christian but I am not perfect.  And I understand the injustice of racism.  My parents, told me at an early age, what racism did to them being in the Eisenhower era, and he rounded up Hispanics.  And shipped them back to Mexico.

I have seen myself, being denied, respect, by my race, even in the Corporate business world.  And yes, it makes me angry.  But even though I may get angry, and I may give you a piece of my mind, I still want to take a higher road.  And sadly, yes, there are many ignorant, prejudiced people.  Who hate.  They hate by the race, by the package someone comes in.  

Martin Luther King, had a beautiful thought, when he said, and I am paraphrasing, “I want to be judged by the integrity, and character of who I am”.  He was a man of God.  And I know with compassion, because history tells us, of so many atrocities, that have been done because of race.  My heart breaks when I see, how it destroys someones confidence, because of mean people who are racists.  It is ugly.

So many, have actually used genocide, to wipe away a people, a culture, a race.  Jews, suffered greatly because of this.  But they don’t hate.  Now, what they do, is defend themselves as they should, but they don’t put people down.  They are a good example of what to do as well.  They fight back now.  

And if you have to fight, then fight right, by doing what is right in the sight of God.  God is love.  And we are to have the characteristics of Christ in love.  

But scripture also tells us, He is not a respecter of persons.  Maybe, if I did not have my American upbringing, knowing the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and my Christian upbringing, I may have just not said anything.  I may have let that lady mock me, and insult me.  But something rose in me, because I know God is not a respecter of persons.  

Acts 10:34 King James.  THEN PETER OPED HIS MOUTH, AND SAID, OF A TRUTH I PERCEIVE THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS:

That means, He loves us all the same.  He looks at what we do, if we have accepted Christ as Lord and savior.  He looks, to see, if we repent.  For we ALL sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  He looks at our souls.  What do we have in our souls?  And if you are a racist, maybe you should see, by His example, that you should repent.  

So why should we be racists?  Why should any of us, take that kind of vision, that does not come from God?  Especially even now, I see it in this political campaigns of some.  

For even our King James bibles, and history tell us of wars, between people, and cultures.  

Do I want to engage in battle, over racial issues?  No.  

And I think we have a choice.  But we better look at who we like, why we like them, and are we someone, who wants to demand and play the racist card, because of race?  

I will defend you, if I see someone discriminated by their race.  Thats just my nature.  The big sister, who did not have a big sister to defend her.  But I like that same kind of defense.  We need to look out for one another.  We need to speak up.  We need to say, thats wrong.  Especially if we are Christians.  

I hope Hollywood, finds some kind of peace in this, but, again, I can only speak for myself.  I am a writer, I am a Christian writer.  I am an American.  Born and raised.  

But none of that means anything, unless I can write.  And prove it to God and others, that I write to serve my God.  But its not by the race card, I am playing to get recognition, or to even get a job.  Or getting a book deal.

Its by knowing what God says by my King James bible.  A true and holy word, that is not corrupted by men, or publishers.  It is…Applying it to my life, and to others.  Anything else is vanity.  Its being puffed up, and it is not worthy of recognition.  

For, it is taking, a gift of words, a knowledge that I have strived to learn, and commanding them to good use, for the Kingdom of God.  

With love, for myself, for you, for others….

Just as I am now, with….

Just my thoughts.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
