Don’t undermine someones pain or sorrow.  I tell myself this as well, because I have learned to put on my own armor, when I see, or sense pain or sorrow in myself, and others.

I have to keep my armor on.  Or I would fall apart.  I would not be effective for the Kingdom of God.  I cannot walk in my way, but the way of Christ.  So no song of self-righteousness, will make me stronger.  But the righteousness of Christ.  Not my self-righteousness.

So when I see people with no compassion.  No understanding, no comprehension of someones pain.  Including their own.  I wonder why they react the way they do.  

No one, understands our own pain, more then Christ, since He suffered for our sins.  For He was compassionate, He was love, He was truth, He was a Physician, He was so much more, that we have to use as an example.  

But we have to go to Christ.  I know I do….and I do.  

When I sense silence, or no offering of compassion, to those that are hurting.  Or if I see someone being mean spirited, I wonder why is there no sense of compassion?

You see, we never know, why people are the way they are.  What contributed to their coldness, or their passiveness, or even their own mean spirit.  So many times, you see people who are rude, or mean, but they don’t know how to give it to Christ.  In fact, many that are that way, deny God.  So when people deny the only true source for healing, they use others as a scapegoat for their pain.  

They get self-centered, selfish, and prideful.  And you have to look real close, or you will not have compassion for that miserable soul.  

I don’t often share my own pain, or sorrow, because I have learned to give it to God.  I have found people don’t always know how to react to others pain.  Or how to console.

Yet, there are things that it just does not seem as if they will heal in my own life, until I stand before God.  So I sometimes hide my pain, or saddness.  

And all I know, is that, I cannot lose my sense of who God is, amidst the pain I sometimes feel, and let that control me.  I cannot.

But it does make me look at people through eyes, that have hurt, to give someone compassion.  Sweet kind, and beautiful compassion.

Compassion, that is love.  That Christ told us to give to one another.  Even our enemies.  How wise our Lord is.  How everything connects, when we use love.  How it solves problems, heals wounds, and brings peace.  It is a commandment.

So as I write about this, please think about how you deal with people.  Maybe you have reason to be angry with someone.  Maybe someone has hurt you deeply.  Maybe, though, if you tried to understand, what molded them to be that way, you can release your own forgiveness, with compassion, to not react with an eye for an eye to them.  Maybe you can stop someone from doing mean, or evil, because you are compassionate.  

God only knows why people are the way they are.  But I have learned, on my own.  I don’t have to embrace that kind of spirit, to grow.  To grow in Christ means, I have love, for others, and myself, to not get caught up in things.  

I just pray, for those who are grieving, angry, or hurt.  Maybe you will have this pain, or sorrow, that I understand, that does not seem to go away.  But I pray, you are always comforted with love.

I never want to undermine your pain.  But don’t undermine my pain either.  

And why I search for God so much.  Unless you have walked in my shoes, or I in yours, all we can do is comfort each other.   But to be mean, and to devalue your pain, or mine, is not productive.  What produces fruit in our lives.  Is love….with compassion.  

WHO CAN HAVE COMPASSION ON THE IGNORANT, AND ON THEM THAT ARE OUT OF THE WAY, FOR THAT HE HIMSELF ALSO IS COMPASSED WITH INFIRMITY.  HEBREWS 5:2 KING JAMES.   

FINALLY BE YE ALL OF ONE MIND, HAVING COMPASSION ONE OF ANOTHER, LOVE AS BRETHREN, BE PITIFUL BE COURTEOUS.  

MARK 1:41. KJV.  

AND OF SOME HAVE COMPASSION, MAKING A DIFFERENCE.  

JUDE 1:22.  KJV. 

Just my thoughts,

WHATS MISSING FROM THE CONVERSATION ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IN THE UNITED STATES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Whats missing from the conversation on illegal immigration, in the United States?

The answer: Love and the facts.  The facts, well…

I am addressing this for a few reasons.  And one, is because History, has not given a full account of who we are as a culture.  As Hispanics.  Or Latinos.  And that is a fact, that we will not let history repeat itself.  

Try searching for our contributions to this nation, in your political correct books.  Its not there.  Its not in our school books, or Social Studies, for students.  Or at least it was not taught when I was growing up, in the sixties.  And I think many of us as Hispanics, we want to set the record straight.  And clear the air.   We are a part of this nation.  And history, if you look deeper our contributions will clarify that.  

As a Christian and a servant of the most high God, I have to mention love first, because as I listen to these political candidates discussing immigration, one principle, and component, that is missing,  is the love, with compassion for people.

The King James Bible tells us, that we are to treat the stranger, the alien with love, as we would ourselves.

AND IF A STRANGER SOJOURN WITH THEE IN YOUR LAND, YE SHALL NOT VEX HIM.  BUT THE STRANGER THAT DWELLETH WITH YOU SHALL BE UNTO YOU AS ONE BORN AMONG YOU, AND THOU SHALT LOVE HIM AS THYSELF; FOR YE WERE STRANGERS IN THE LAND OF EGYPT:  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.  Leviticus 19:33-34.

Do you see the words “love that stranger”? That is missing from the conversation of the candidates.  And if any candidate says he is a Christian or reads the bible is missing that. If he is talking about immigration.

Because we are called to love one another.  And we are called to be kind, and merciful.  We are called to be an expression of Christ in love, and Christ told us, this is how we will be known as the disciples of Christ.  With love.

Now….

I can write this, and say this, because I am an American, Hispanic, Christian writer.  I understand discrimination.  From my own life, even as a Christian, and a Hispanic, but from the history, my family shared with me that happened to them in the Eisenhower Era.  Horror stories of discrimination, and racial profiling.  Of mocking someone, and calling them names, by denying them services in restaurants, stores, and businesses.  And even jobs.  A means to support themselves and their families.  Discrimination.

And from my perspective as I listen to these candidates, I recognize the problem of illegal immigration, but one cannot treat people with rudeness, a dismissive attitude, that is actually instigating hate from these candidates. Violating civil rights.  And I do have to be careful here, and not mention all of the candidates in this group.  But one.  And I will not say his name, for more publicity.

I also see it, from the rhetoric, from behind computers, that screams racial discrimination, and racial profiling.  People are taking this, and feeding on it, and yes behind their computers, are rudely, telling people to go back to Mexico.

Now lets talk about that for a second.  Because the fact is.…Many Hispanics are Americans, and can relate to the problem of illegal immigration.  But we want our borders secured.  We want an administration, that will apply the laws, and rules and regulations, in an effective manner to protect our borders. This is a fact, though, I know not of one poll that was taken.  To clairify this.

I have not talked to one Hispanic American who wants illegal immigration.  So why does the conversation have to take this kind of tone?  This kind of rhetoric?

The problem will not be solved, by spending millions of dollars, to “round up” Hispanics, and boot them back to Mexico.  The government and yes all citizens of the United States, should have figured that a long time ago.  And now, with things so out of hand, you propose sending “Anchor” babies as you call them back to Mexico?  How can you take the Fourteenth Amendment, and now call it illegal?  These American babies have rights.  But to propose to round up all these people, who are part American as well is just wrong.  I hope a solution is found.

But lets talk for a moment about immigration.  For over 500 years, Hispanics, have integrated into American society.  We have fought wars, side by side, with other races for the United States, and we have contributed to this great land, and paid our dues, and our taxes.  Not as Hispanics.  But with the goal in mind to be united in the United States for one cause, to protect this great land, and the freedoms it offers.  And now with this kind of rhetoric we are denied, the grace we have strived for.  And earned.

And for people to use this kind of rhetoric, based on the way someone looks, is racial profiling, and discrimination.  Which is very insulting to our culture.  Especially if you talk to Hispanic Americans, they can tell you a little bit of history, and the “hardships” they have had, in just assimilating into the culture of America.  But one thing, about most American Hispanics, is we are hard workers.

We take the jobs, nobody wants, and we take a work ethic seriously, and apply ourselves.  We are not asking for a handout, or to change the culture like some who come here and try to change traditions, rules, etc.  We want to work.  I want to work as a writer.  But even Christian organizations won’t give me the time of day.  Which is just my personal take and experience on it.  But I know we take pride in working hard.

But we are also educated.  We know, that in this culture an education is needed.  We contribute as law officers, firemen, teachers, real estate brokers, and so much more.  Education has given us these opportunities.

We are a whole country of immigrants, “illegal, and legal”, from the beginning of molding this country into where it is now.  This is why it has been ignored. The subject of immigration.  Where America turned the other eye.  Because if you look at many, some, they never did it legally.  They just came to America.  And assimilated.

But now we have financial problems, and we do need to control the borders, not only financially but secure it for reasons, that protects us all, from intruders, and those who want to harm people, just because they are Americans.  And the truth of the matter is, the system failed.  And now, because the system failed you want to penalize people, pull them up by their roots, divide families, and send them back somewhere, where they may not even belong?  

When did that happen last in History?  I implore you?  When?  History should not repeat itself in this way.  

I want to address this, because what I see if we do not change the conversation, the tone, their will be retaliation. There  will be a rift in this country so great, that it will taint this country and its history, with hate.  God forbid there would be another civil war.  American Hispanics, Hispanics, illegal, or legal, will not condone or accept being treated this way.

I know my roots.  I know my culture, I know my heritage of the people I identify with as Hispanics.  By growing up, in this country, that enough is enough.   We offer the best of ourselves, we offer love, and hope, and accept others.  To live and let live.  But we will not accept discrimination.  We just will not.  

Be warned, and I actually say this in love, we will not accept this kind of behavior.  And God forbid it goes any further, but I know if this kind of rhetoric is not challenged, and people do not see the hypocrisy, by being a part of this kind of hate conversations.  

There will be a fight.  And thats all I can say.  Careful with my own words.  Because I know first as a Christian I am called to love.  And forgive.  But not all my people see it that way.  For when people come to the point where push comes to shove it will be returned.  I just know my culture.  And my heritage as also a legal American.  I know the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.   

And I know we would rather be United, so we all can stand.  Because divided, we will fall as a nation.  But America needs to see the problem, with love and compassion.  And know the facts.

We have roots so deep in America, most of us, that you cannot lump everyone in this basket of hate.  And tell them to leave this country, when their roots are deeper than those whose agenda is based on hate.  With forefathers, who are a part of the land.  And its history.  With American Indian blood.  As also a part of their genetic heritage.  

We need to love one another.  We need God, more then ever.  America needs to repent, and find its way back to God.

Folks, and that just does not seem to be on anybodies agenda.  We need order.  We need our borders secure.  We need common courtesy and respect, and acceptance of who we are in America.  As we offer it to you as well, and your ethnic differences, that make your race great.  What ever that race or ethnicity may be.

But we need to see the problem.  Leaders have to have the mind of unity, and not division in this country.  For all races, and all people.  They need to speak it out in their speeches, to unite people instead of instigating a fight.  Or with silence.  With a solution, that does not require hate. Please see this, before this gets out of hand.  We all have to see this.  We all have to see our own behavior, and be accountable.

Truth of the matter is, whatever decision that is we are accountable to God.  I pray, it is with compassion and love.

Thank you, Elena Ramirez

Dear Gente, my beautiful people who are created in the image of God. Our culture like any other want to live and let live. All people are created in the image of God but not all people feel that way at this time. All babies are gifts from God, in the heritage of our culture. This is why I will vote Republican. But I will not vote for racists or haters. Be strong in who you are. Be courageous. Let us be educated and particapators of the voting process. Our American Hispanic votes count. God bless you… Let us seek God in these times.

Querida Gente, mi gente bella que es creados a la imagen de Dios. Nuestra cultura como cualquier otra quiero vivir y dejar vivir. Todas las personas son creadas a la imagen de Dios, pero no todas las personas sienten de esa manera en este momento. Todos los bebés son regalos de Dios, en el patrimonio de nuestra cultura. Por esta razón voy a votar republicano. Pero no votaré por racistas o enemigos. Ser fuerte en quien eres. Ser valientes. Ser educado y proceso de particapators de la votación. Nuestra América hispana votos cuenta. Que dios te bendiga…

Debemos buscar a Dios en estos tiempos.

 

WHEN YOUR NOT SURE THE WORD IS FROM A PROPHET OF GOD OR A FORTUNE TELLER ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


Be careful who you get spiritual advice from.  This is a principle I have learned, and I share it more in my book.  HOW TO HAVE FAITH. via Smashwords, go to this link.

Have you ever heard someone say, they had a word, for someone, and they said, they came in the name of the Lord, but you had that strange queasy feeling, that perhaps, they were a “wolf in sheeps clothing” who really was just a fortune teller?

They were trying to get you to believe them, for whatever reason, but you just did not feel good about it.

There are many people, who use the word of the Lord, or even say they come in the name of the Lord, and they have not been instructed by God to speak a word.  In other words, they are phonies.

In Deuteronomy 18:20 BUT THE PROPHET WHICH SHALL PRESUME TO SPEAK A WORD IN MY NAME, WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED HIM TO SPEAK, OR THAT SHALL SPEAK IN THE NAME OF OTHER GODS, EVEN THAT PROPHET SHALL DIE.  AND IF THOU SAY IN THINE HEART, HOW SHALL WE KNOW THE WORD WHICH THE LORD HATH NOT SPOKEN?  WHEN A PROPHET SPEAKETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, IF THE THING FOLLOW NOT, NOR COME TO PASS, THAT IS THE THING WHICH THE LORD HATH NOT SPOKE, BUT THE PROPHET HATH SPOKEN IT, PRESUMPTUOUSLY:  THOU SHALT NOT BE AFRAID OF HIM.  

I just feel in my heart, that we are to be ever so careful, especially in these days, with those who says they come in the name of the Lord.  Or with whoever we may keep company with.  As friends.  

There are so many of us, that are vulnerable, that we search.  We search for love, and we search for friends, in Christ, but there are deceivers out there.  They want to take your pain, say for instance, in the loss of a loved one, and they want you to think, they have a connection.  Maybe even into the spiritual world.

This is wrong, for one thing, because we are not called to talk to the dead.  Necromancy.  Remember this word, it is not one, that comes up in normal conversation.  But you need to know what it means. Webster says this:  The art or practice of conjuring up the spirits of the dead for purposes of magically revealing the future.

Talking to the dead, praying to the dead, praying to family members, these kind of things are offensive to God.  Do you rememeber Saul from the Bible? The King, of Israel who hated David.  He did this, and then He died.  He wanted to talk to Samuel the prophet, and went to a witch, a fortune teller, or whoever she was, with her familar spirit, the Bible says, and this very much offended God.  Yeah he got a word, from the spirit, and it predicted his death, and the death of his sons.  Read the story yourself from I Samuel Chapter 28.  And yes, I recommend reading a King James Bible for the anointing.  And truth, where the words, have not been changed. 

Folks, we have to be careful, who we get spiritual help from, and you must be careful, especially again, if they say they come in the name of the Lord.  We are called to test, and try the spirits.  

BELOVED, BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD:  BECAUSE MANY FALSE PROPHETS ARE GONE OUT INTO THE WORLD.  I JOHN 4:1

We are called to pray.  To God only, by the name of Jesus Christ.  We are not to pray to an angel, or to a saint, or anyone or anything but God almighty.

Here again, in Deuteronomy 18 it talks about how we are to be aware, and to be careful.  Dear friends, there are many people, who have fallen victim to these lies from the devil.  Don’t be one of them.  Read this carefully.

WHEN THOU ART COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD THY GOD GIVETH THEE, THOU SHALT NOT LEARN TO DO AFTER THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE NATIONS.  THERE SHALL NOT BE FOUND AMONG YOU ANY ONE THAT MAKETH HIS SON OR HIS DAUGHTER TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, OR THAT USETH DIVINATION OR AN OBSERVER OF TIMES, OR AN ENCHANTER, OR A WITCH.  OR A CHARMER OR A CONSULTER WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS, OR A WIZARD OR A NECROMANCER. FOR ALL THAT DO THESE THINGS ARE AN ABOMINATION UNTO THE LORD, AND BECAUSE OF THESE ABOMINATIONS THE LORD THY GOD DOTH DRIVE THEM OUT FROM BEFORE THEE.  THOU SHALT BE PERFECT WITH THE LORD THY GOD.  Deuteronomy 18:9-13.

You really need to see this.  And know, we are called not to be with those kind of people.

I Corinthians 5: 13.  BUT THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT GOD JUDGETH.  THEREFORE PUT AWAY FROM AMONG YOURSELVES THAT WICKED PERSON.

There is a lot to this, but I see many do not open their King James Bible, and read the truth from God concerning these things.  These kind of people open the door to hell itself.  Because they bring in demonic spirits, that are not of God.  Do you ever wonder why things go bad?  Or there are generational curses?  This happens, when people lift up anything else, besides God almighty.  He is a jealous God, and this is also a form of idolatry.  

And again, people are so vulnerable.  Do not be deceived.  The enemy, has used many “disguises” and masquerades himself, even saying they come in the name of the Lord.  It is sad, that it is not more evident in some ways, but you have to pray, you have to build yourself up, in the truth of what God says.

You need to submit to God, resist the devil, and flee from these things, and yes even people, who are not really Christians.  Look at the fruit.  Sometimes, you may not see it right away.  But trust your gut instinct, which is the Holy spirit.

Pray again, and beware.  Because you want to be right with God, and you want to know for sure, that the word you may get would be from a true prophet of God.

I am so careful at this time, and I pray, never to be deceived.  But I look at what God says, and I look at the fruit of what those that say they come in the name of the Lord, and I pray.

I pray you do as well.  Just a thought today, and praying it is received in truth.

For I am a truth seeker of the gospel, of Jesus Christ.  I get that from heaven above, from my King James Bible, and His Holy Spirit, by the truth of Jesus Christ.   Yes pray, and repent, if you have done this even in error.  By listening to a liar from hell.  Get right with God, because you do not want to reap the curses of these things.  You want to please God.  

And I say this, “I plead the blood of Jesus over this post.  And the truth of it. God will bless those who bless me, and curse those who curse me.” It is my hedge of protection, in matters like this.  

 Blessings, and love,  Elena Ramirez

SPIRITUAL CLEANSING ~ THINGS I HAVE LEARNED, TO GET RID OF THE DEVIL PART I (REPENTANCE)


Please Note:

This is intended for a Christian. In order for anybody, to take this to heart, they must first secure their salvation, that it is in tact.  Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, and Savior.

I have been a Christian for a while.  I have learned a lot in this walk with Christ.  Everything, I write, is to the glory of God.  I am His servant, I am His child, and every moment, I live, and breathe, and have my being, it is because of who I am in Christ.

As a sinner, who was saved by grace, I see the error of my ways in many ways.  I see, things, I had to do, to get right with God.  When one repents, that is the beginning of a spiritual cleansing.  True repentance, in the sight of a Holy God, is required first, and foremost, for salvation.  For we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.

I am writing this, because I see, Christians (or people, who think they are Christians, but they don’t know Gods truth)  so they are oppressed, or may be experiencing, spiritual warfare.  And I want to help them.  Through Christ only.

For, one may carry spiritual baggage, or curses, may be established, from generation to generation. Things may not always change for the new Christian.  Or things may still be evident, in an old Christians life, if they have not made changes.

One may see, they need to get a spiritual bath.  Baptism, in the Holy spirit, is also needed.  And bringing the Holy spirit, is always needed to fight off, and ward off the devil.  And when I say, this, I do not say it in a religious, context.  Or what religion says.  for there are so many different, thoughts, on baptism.  And from different, religions.    I say, it in the sense, that one would repent, and be baptized, making themselves, one in Christ.  To receive the spiritual cleansing.  I am talking about being baptized, when you are an adult, and you can understand the significance, of baptism.  That it truly is newness of life.  To receive cleansing.  My friend “G” shared this, and brought perspective.

To receive, as Christ did, the Holy spirit, to guide you, and give you discernment.  To know the difference.  To know, what is right, and wrong.  What is evil, what is good.  Many people, do not know the difference.  With all the junk I see, sometimes on television, or movies, they try to make evil look good, and people are deceived.  So you need to know, to receive your cleansing.

To stop the devil.  So he does not have a “legal” right to hurt you.  Yes, we are saved by grace, but only the grace of God, can stop the legal rights the enemy, can impose on you.  Remember Job?  Before he attacked, the devil,asked God, about the hedge around him.  The blood of Jesus, is that hedge.  (and I will talk about this more, in the next post.)

The devil, the adversary of God, is an angel.  A fallen angel.  He was kicked out of heaven, because he wanted to lift himself up high as God.  He is not Gods equal.  So people, need to know first, and foremost they need to know this, and not make a comparison.  God is almighty God.  And there is none else.

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me:  I girded thee, though thou has not known me:  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside Me.  I am the Lord, and there is none else.  Isaiah 45:5-6

Lets say, for the sake of communication, one has dabbled, unknowingly, into things, of the devil.

The occult, the supernatural, astrology, new age thinking, idolatry, etc.  There are so many things, that people, can do, or have done, to open doors, that have given “place” to the devil. Sin.

It is so important to know God, love God, and know His word, and yes, very importantly, obey God.  Even here, as I write this, I sense and realize how important, the fear of God is, even as the beginning of wisdom.  It is our hedge of protection, by the blood of Jesus.  The sacrifice, of Christ, took the curse of the penalty of sin, away from us.  Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.  Having therefore these promises dearly beloved, let us “cleanse” ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.  II Corinthians 7:1

Many think because they accept Christ, that the devil will not attack.  A misconception, because he wants to steal you back.  He wants “you” to cancel your salvation.  He does not want you to grow.  He wants you afraid.  But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.  II Timothy 1:7 The devil, does not want you to know truth, to set yourself, free, and others.  He will try to steal the word, you have received, even in your salvation.  Remember this, because Christ, told us he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.

God will not let that happen, but you have your part in this.

So, even though, we know the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy, praise God it is so good to know, Christ came to give life, and life abundantly.  Here and into eternity.  What we do now, affects us for our future, after we pass.

So it is so important, to renew the mind, in Christ, to fight off your enemy.  So you need to know the tricks of the enemy.  You need to know who you are in Christ.  You need to know what offends God, and opens doors to the devil.  You need to know your own authority, you can take in the name of Jesus.

This subject, has so many portals, and roads, you can take, that have opened the door, to the enemy.  Who can even know?  So many are totally in the dark, not knowing, they have made a way for the enemy.  But God knows, when a life, (a soul) has made the wrong choice.  So, if you do not take the road, the only road, with Christ as the way, the truth, and life, you will be lost. (John 14:6) Get that straight right away, there is no other way, but by Christ.

Do not let the devil, confuse you, misunderstanding, Gods ways, for they are not up for debate.  You will only try to fight a battle, and lose, that truly belongs to God alone.  You will not see results, unless you totally relinquish yourself to Christ, totally.

Yes, I will share many things with you, that I have learned, but you must seek God in prayer, you must submit totally to God.  Give no place to the devil.  Resist him, and he will flee.

The first key, in repentance, I share with you, as a mind set, as a principle, as a thing to pray is this:

Ask God first, to show you how to submit to Him.  James 4:7-8 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.  Do you see the word, “cleanse” and “purify”?   Take on who Christ, is in His holiness, for your cleansing, and protection, for holiness, to be yours.

Repent, even now, after you read this.  Whether you think, you have done anything wrong or not.  Coming before God humble, He will lift you up.  But, He avoids the proud. Come to God humble.  He will show you, how you gave place to the devil, and you may even know….but the key is being humble in the sight of a Holy God.  The devil was proud, don’t let that be your downfall as well.  Repent…..

As I myself, pray, to God, for revelation, to cover the bases for you and for myself, for our families. Spiritual cleansing, has to come in stages, in our walk with Christ, for He is Holy.  He has called us to holiness as well, and it takes time, but know this, in that time you walk with God, the devil, will do everything, he can to stop you.  It is your responsibility, as a Christian, to do all you can to give him “no place.”

This is the introduction to the first part of this series.  I recommend, you sign up, here at the blog, or my Facebook “like” page, to get the updates on this subject.  They will be posted, as God gives me the word of knowledge, or insight, I need to know to discern His will, and thoughts, in this matter.

Who knows, it could turn into a book, if the right, publisher came along.  All to the glory of God, and with a heart, and mindset, to help people.  So many are lost, we need to reach them for Christ.  To show them truth, to show them keys to live a life worthy of Christ sacrifice.  To break curses, to be victorious.

I am trying….as I say this again.  I am only Gods servant, humble in His sight.  Thank you Jesus, for your help.  There is victory over the enemy, by Christ.  Thank you Lord.

With Love, in Christ, as I submit to God Almighty….

Just my Thoughts….

Father, I praise you, I thank you, I adore you, in spirit and truth.  Lord, I sense, you want me to write about spiritual cleansing, about sharing, things, I have learned to get rid of the devil.  To break curses, to heal the broken hearted, to make changes, that can only come from you, by Christ.  May cleansing, and repentance, being humble before you, begin this process.  Lord, protect me in this.  Protect the reader, who has come to a place, where they are ready to take this spiritual bath, to do all they can for spiritual cleansing.  So clean robes, robes of righteousness, can be worn in holiness, free from the enemy.  So, he will not have a legal right, to attack.  But this will ward off the enemy, by the blood of Jesus.  Even here, I plead the blood of Jesus, completely around us, our families, our finances, and ask for your intervention in this matter.  For the fear of you is the beginning of wisdom.  And yes, Lord, the battle is yours.  Help us fight your enemy, by your ways.  So we can say, look what the Lord has done for me.  For you glory, honor, and praise.  In Jesus name.  Amen

LIFE WITHOUT GOD IS NOT LIFE



AND THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND, AND WITH ALL THY STRENGTH, THIS IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT.  

MARK 12:30

Many, wonder, and marvel at who I am.  Why I am so consumed, to talk about God.  Why, everything, about me, is always centered on God.  I have heard it so many times, from others, and even in conversation.  “Gee, why does she talk about God all the time?”

Maybe, because He just is, my favorite subject.  He is life, and He gives me life.  For He is the way, the truth, and Life.  John 14:6  And there really is no other way to the Father.  Others may debate this.  But they don’t know.

I do know this, with every ounce of my being.  For I cannot stop, and not see God, in every single one of my blessings. In His plan of salvation, that I have accepted, in His creation, in my family, in my life, in the changes, in the Hope, in the healings, and so much more…..He is love.  And He gives me love, and life.

Thats just who I am.  I don’t know all the reasons why.  I cannot pinpoint all of this specifically….As I don’t know all who God is.  Yet, what I do know, has taught me, there is a God.  Every time, I have needed Him He has been there, and helped me.  Life is hard, no one will argue about that.  But, I cannot see myself living without Him.  Without giving all of my all, and all, to talk about Him, to share Him, with others.  To acknowledge Him, in my life, and remind others, of who He is….in my own little way.

Yes, I am consumed with and about God.  I want to be careful, not to offend Him.  This is a relationship I have, not a religion.  I want to obey Him.  I know myself, well enough, when I see, I am not right with Him.  I have seen my heart, being rebellious, and wanting to do things my way.  And I have seen the results of that.  I have reaped, what I have sown, when I did not do things Gods way.  I see, the loneliness, the heartache, the desperation, without Him.  I see, I was my own worst enemy, when I did not let God in, or I denied Him.  For I could not see, when I was in my darkness.  But I thought, in my foolishness, without Him, I could.  How wrong I was….And thats when I realized, the devil, blinds people, to think, they can live without God.  By denying Him.  JOHN 12:40 HE HATH BLINDED THEIR EYES, AND HARDENED THEIR HEART:  THAT THEY SHOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES, NOR UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART, AND BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD HEAL THEM.  

I did not think, I was denying God, when I wanted to do things my way, but I was.  It is a matter of choice.  It always is.  For when one chooses, to believe what they want, when knowing their can be an alternative, in God, that is a choice, that I would not recommend.

For life to me, is life, with God.  For He is the greatest force.  He is after all, the creator of Heaven and Earth.  He created you, and me, for His  purposes.  To have a relationship with Him.  And all He wants, I have learned, even from the mistakes of Adam, and Eve, is that He wants us to believe Him.  He wants us to search for Him, and take Him, at His word, and He who gave us life, will give us life abundantly, as Christ said.

How sad, it is that people, do not take Him at His word.  That they just go on about in their existence, and that is what I call it, for to me, a harsher word, would be “death’ because when you do not have God in your life, when one does not have the one who created them, they are merely existing.  And that is spiritual death, when one does not acknowledge, or draw close to the one, who can make a persons life, full, and complete. Totally, in life, purposeful, just because of who He is, in their life.

He has done every thing for us, to prove this love, this greatest, of greatest forces, by even the example of the cross.  I have learned, and I know, in my heart of hearts, that if He did not love us, we would be sealed, even in the sins, of the curse of Adam and Eve.  If He had not made a way.

For you see, the disobedience, was from eating of the tree, of Good and evil.  The tree of life.  God after, Adam and Eve, sinned, and disobeyed God, after being deceived by the devil, the serpent, God almighty, cast them from the garden, and put a sword, and a cherub to protect it.  He protected us from the sin.  From the curse.  For it was originally meant to be a covenant with God.  Read Genesis.

But because of who He is, in His love, and in the life, He intended for us.  He knew, if a way, would not have been made, there would have been no hope for us.  He knew, by the covenant, that the curse of sin, would be ours, if He did not implement, a new plan.  That plan, that new covenant, is Jesus Christ.  Christ, told us He is the way, the truth, and the life.  He told us the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  But He came, that we may have life, and life abundantly.  John 10:10

Dear one, I hold onto that, with every ounce of my being.  I press into that, I never want to get into sloppy agape.  Sloppy love, a sloppy attitude about my salvation.  The cost of Christs life was too high, it came at a great, great sacrifice.  Yet, our saviors love, is so great He did go to the cross for us.  He did, as the son of God, obeyed God, for us.

I marvel at some religions, they sacrifice themselves, or others, but they do not grasp, and take hold of what God did for us through Christ.  He became the sacrifice.  It is a gift, that God has given each one of us.  If we have any wisdom, we will take that gift, we will cherish it, and we will press into the one, who has given us this gift.  But how can one take it, without really the fear of God?  For the fear of God, is the beginning of wisdom.  Fear of God, is healthy, I believe.  It keeps you away, from tampering with or playing with evil.

Yes, I suppose to some, I am radical, I am a Holy roller, I am eccentric.  To some I am peculiar.  The word of God says, His people are peculiar people.  BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE;  THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HATH CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT.  I PETER 2:9

I am so honored to be of royalty.  And I do Praise God, I thank Him.  I worship Him, because He did bring me out of darkness.  Whatever name you may want to call me, it does not bother me.  For you see, I once was lost, not just a little lost, but very lost, and the one who found me, was Jesus Christ.  He called me by name.  (read my testimony in the posts above)

I just know, my life, truly began when he found me, but my responsibility, is to be as close to Him, as I can be.  I must give it my all and all.  With every bit of strength, I must seek, and abide close to the Lord.  To try and obey, to try, and live life in love, and holiness.  Because of who He is.  Because with Him, all things are possible.  ALL THINGS!!!

I realized, at one point, that I could not just have a head knowledge of God.  But I had to do everything, in my own power, to walk with Him.  To give it my all and all.  Cherishing this life.  To read His word, to pray, to acknowledge Him, in all my ways.  It is not a private thing, but an expression of who I am in Him, because I will always, acknowledge Him, as my Holy father.  Who saved me, found me, and gave me life, and life abundantly.

Did you know God hides?  Isaiah 45:15.  He quietly watches all of us.  He by His Holy spirit, knows the hearts and intentions of all of us.  Not one thing is too hard for Him.  But we are to pray to Him.  We are to converse with Him.  We are to take him at His word.  We are to try and obey Him.  Aware of the consequences of sin.  He will take that curse, but we must try.  For only by the blood of Jesus, is the curse removed.  But it is our responsibility, to try and obey, to try and live a life worthy of all He has done.

This honors Him.  He does hide, and all He wants is for us to seek Him.  All He wants is to be believed.  All He wants is for us to press in and search for him, with all our hearts.  To prove we love him.  That is our responsibility.  Nobody else, can have the relationship for you, but by Jesus Christ.  Thats why it is so important, to give it your all.  To try….

Yes to me, life without God is not life.  I would call it death.  But, you call it whatever it is, to you.  For you see, I was there, I know the difference.  And I will never let go of Christ.  For He is my life.

It is all of our responsibility, to press into who He is.  He is a gentleman.  He never forces us to do anything.  But when I stand before Him, I do not want to see in the book of life, that I was ashamed of Him, or that I did not try to tell others who He was.  I have so much to do, and I also am a lady in the sense, that I may share who I am in Christ, but I never shove it down any ones throat.  But I cannot deny who I am in Him.  Even if others do not believe.  I am not perfect at sharing my faith.  There are times when I do not say anything to anyone.

But if the Holy spirit, gives me the “go-ahead” then I do try.  So, even here, I write it.  I try to articulate it, to inspire others, because this life, is too great a gift, that He has given me, to not share it.  For Christ wants all to be saved, all to know life, in Him.

All I know, is that I know, I have a responsibility, to give it my all, and all.  Thats life, living to the fullest, because of who He is.  In my life…..He is love.  And He taught me love.  The greatest of love……

Life without God, is NOT Life.

Just my thoughts, with love,

Elena Ramirez

Father, you, who knows the heart, knows everything.  How I long to be closer to you.  How I long to avoid, the sins that entrap people, and bring curses.  How I long, Lord, just to sit at your feet.  Resting.  Being in your presence.  Hearing your voice.  Enjoying your laughter, and joy.  I admit, sometimes, I am so impulsive.  I admit, I used to rationalize, from an intellectual level.  Not by my spirit.  That is your truth, as I worship you.   I admit, sometimes, I can be so fidgety, it can be just a chore to discipline myself, to be obedient to pray, to read the word, to seek you.  Yet when I do, and I am in your presence, the rewards are so great.  Life is not life without you Father.  Life holds no true meaning to me, without knowing you or seeking you.  You comfort me, when I need a friend.  You comfort me, and give me a better understanding of who I truly can be with you.  I worship you in spirit and truth Father.  Your truth.  Not even mine.  For you are the Lord, who hides himself.  But I pray you would manifest yourself to me, to the body of Christ, to the lost, and even our enemies.  For truly the fear of you, is the beginning of wisdom.  You are not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  Yet you give us grace.  Time, to make things right with  you.  In this moment, I pray, even for the person, that would read this.  That they would realize, truly “Life without you dear Father, is not Life.”   Thank you, for everything, in Jesus name.  Amen

WHEN GOD GIVES YOU AN ASSIGNMENT OF LOVE….


God does give us assignments of love.  It could be anything, that he may test us in, or to validate His word in us.

It could be a mission, God places on your heart, something, that will make you His hands and feet, maybe even His mouth, to speak a word.  But to do something in love.

Helping someone, feeding someone, giving water to someone.  Making your money, work, for His Kingdom.  So you give, from your heart, with love.  An assignment of love, from God, can be anything, and when you are His child, you will not only be tested in this, but you will hear His voice, and know, you have been given an assignment of love.  You know, you have to obey.

God gave me one today.  He gave me an assignment of love.  To walk in love, with someone, who was rude to me.

Did I expect HIS assignment, or even this persons rudeness?  No.  But I know His voice.  And I just felt him say, “let it go”... And my little assignment of love, may not mean anything to anybody but to God, me, and maybe the person, God has assigned me to love.

It may produce fruit, but thats not for me to know really.  I am just called to water the plant, with love.  And most likely, this person, will never acknowledge it.  Or love me in return.  But, thats o.k.  I have come to expect it.

After all I know this persons track record in this.  But I know, that I know, I must do my part in love.   I must love this person, pray for this person, be kind to this person, be cordial to this person, and all out of love.

But today, as I prayed for this person.  I felt peace.  I felt like old wounds did not hurt any more.  Even with other people.  You see, Christ told us, that when we are His children.  We are to love.  We are to forgive.  We are to know, if they hated him, and they did, for they crucified him.  They could do it to us too.  The pharisees, hated Jesus.  They were “religious” people.  And I always test the spirits, to see if they are love…..if they are not.  I wonder if they are a “pharisee” spirit.

Anyway, the reason, I write this, is maybe you can relate….  To anyone, who has been mean to you…From that snobby person in church, or that rude and aloof person, you see, at church, or anywhere, and they totally disregard you.  They don’t talk to you, and if they do, it is condescending, it is patronizing.  You are taking up their space…Yikes.  And excuuuuuuuse me!  Or it could be a family member.  Whoever…again, just forgive, and love, and walk in love.  Let the hurts all go.

This could be any where.  Including your job site, etc.  Well, maybe God is giving you a “Love Assignment” too.

I want to encourage you.  Walk in love, with that person.  It may hurt so very much, because you knew what you got, was not what you deserved.  You see it clearly, you are being snubbed.  Its not your imagination.  They are either jealous of you, and giving place to the devil, in these acts, that are not of love.  But you know.… A person, can pick up on those mean, and hurtful of all vibes. And it hurts, I know.

But we are to imitate our savior, and his example in love.  Protect yourself, with Gods love….and go to Him. And love….

Look at Christ.  Christ loved us so much, that he obeyed God the father, and went to the cross for us.  He took each beating, he took, each stripe, and they nailed my savior on the cross, for our sins.

The devil, thought, it would be a victory, by destroying the son of God.  But what a dummy the devil is.  This was Gods plan, because He gave His son, power, to be resurrected.  So Christ, went to hell, after He was crucified, and on that third day, probably gave the devil, a black eye, and took the keys from hell.  To set us free!  Hallelujah!!! (Giving the devil a black eye, is not scriptural)

But this is scripture, don’t give evil for evil.  Recompense to no man evil for evil.  Provide things honest in the sight of all men.  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, or give place unto wrath for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.  Romans 12:17-19

And I am not advocating giving anyone a black eye literally.  I must especially, make that clear, because some of my friends, can attest, I was a fighter.  And in the natural, before I knew Christ, if someone was mean to me, or a bully, or was just plain mean, I would have given them a piece of my mind, at least…..

But…I am talking about Love, the love of a forgiving and kind Father.  That God is. I am talking about my savior, my friend, my counselor, my provider, and healer, and so much more.  He is love.

Christ did all that for us.  He is the greatest example of love.  And when I think of who I was again, the fighter, the loser, the kid, who missed it….I think of what Christ did for me.  And all I want to do is love.  Because I know, at what a great sacrifice His life was to give to me, to you, to all of us.

I don’t want to leave this world, hating anyone.  Or being wounded, by old pains.  For sometime, I will stand before my creator.  I want to keep my armor on, and quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  And the only way, I can, is by being love, as He is love.  Turning the cheek, the other way, as Christ turned His cheek.

And maybe, because I was a fighter naturally, I know, I have to love supernaturally.  In His love.  I have to be obedient.  So, if this person, and I ever communicate again.  Which I doubt.  But if we do, I will be nice, I will be cordial, I will be forgiving, and kind.  Because God gave me an assignment of love.

I also know, in this assignment.  Whenever, the Lord, brings this person to my mind, I will pray for this person.  If this person needed me, I would be there.  Because I know my assignment.  And I need to say this, as a vow, I will not speak negatively of this person, or undermine this person, and their ability.  Or who they are.  I will not speak against this person, in any way.  Because I know, the Holy spirit hears….

Anyway, God gave me an assignment to love, and I know I have to pass this test of love.  You just know…that you know, you have to be obedient to Love.  God is love.

Just my Thoughts….With love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I love you.  Thank you, for giving me this assignment to love.  Would you please help me to do this.  Cause I also know my past track record.  I need help.  Thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen

MORE THOUGHTS, ON THE MIND OF CHRIST


Sometimes, we can be bombarded, with negative feelings, doubt, pain, sorrow, low self-esteem, and just plain evil thoughts. Sometimes, we need instruction.

And one may wonder, where did that come from? We have to remember, we are spirits. That lives in a physical body. But our thoughts, come from the spirit realm. This is why it is so important, to know who we are in Christ.

As we grow, we begin to see who we are in Christ. But if you are not reading the word of God daily, renewing your mind, and praying, to God, who is a spirit, you may find yourself, sensing all of these negative feelings.

And I have to interject firmly, if you are not reading a Holy bible.  A King James Bible, you will not have the mind of Christ.  Other Bible versions, are not anointed, they are not holy, because they have been translated, and yes corrupted.  You want an incorruptible word from God.  Look at Gods word as a seed, you plant.  Remember Christ said, they would not be able to endure, and their roots would be pulled up by the devil.  Paraphrasing. This is what the true word says.

Matthew 13:4-6 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:  Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up because they had no deepness of earth.  And when the sun was up, they were scorched and because they had no root, they withered away.   

I Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.  

You need to see, you do not want a word that has been changed, and corrupted.  Or you will be scorched, and wither without a true foundation.  To hold roots in Christ. You will not grow to be the person, God has called you to be.  The devil will fool you, deceive you, and if you do not change your Bible back to a King James Bible, you will not have the power, and anointing that you need, to have the mind of Christ.

These bible versions, are new, and meant for the times, to relate in our English language. But they have changed the context.  Do your own comparison.  But know this, they have disobeyed Revelation 22:18-19.  And their salvation is at stake.  Read it, from the King James.

Think of it though as a recipe.  For Gods word, is spiritual food.  But when you change the wording, it does not taste the same, nor does it have the power, it had by the King James Bible.

God established this holy word, for at least 400 years.  The King James Bible is authorized, with no copyrights.  The other bible versions do have copyrights.  They control the content, and context, and many of these versions, actually have scriptures missing.  I would not trust the validity of any of these other Bible versions.

And I am even going to go as far as to say, I do not listen to pastors, or evangelists, who do not use a pure word of God.  It brings a spirit of confusion, and it is a waste of time.  No matter, if the intentions are good, they are not a Holy word.  This is totally up to you, but I would warn my pastor, and I have.  Consequently, I am searching for a true Holy bible based church, that teaches from the King James Bible.  Because the last pastor I warned did not heed my words, the Lord gave to me.  But I know who I am in Christ, and I have the mind of Christ, in love, and fear to depart from something that would hold me back.  From growing spiritually.  I take each Holy word of God, from the King James Bible as a seed, and I apply it to my life, so it can grow.   So I can have the mind of Christ.

Christ told us, he gave us his mind. I Corinthian 2:16 FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM, BUT WE HAVE THE
MIND OF CHRIST.

We can have the mind of Christ. We must think, and react, as Christ did. As we get to know Christ, more, by his word, we begin, to get the confidence, we need. The strength. Because we see who HE is. Enabling us to see who we are in him.

Never, ever give into those negative thoughts. God will instruct you, if you need guidance.

Talking to God, knowing His truth, His Holy word, will give you, more, and more, His mind, to overcome all things. You live, move, and have your being, because of Christ. Take advantage of who you are in Christ, and tell those negative feelings, they have to Go. Really telling the devil, he has to go. As you submit to God, and resist the devil, those feelings will leave.

The mind of Christ will take over….

Putting on the helmet, of your salvation, (read Ephesians 6, that talks about the armor of God)

Be encouraged, be good to yourself, maybe take a walk with God, spend time in His word, but whatever you do, don’t let those negative feelings overtake you. You can do all things through Christ, who strengthens you. And never, ever forget, he does have a plan for you. Good thoughts, for a future and for hope….

Blessings, and much love,

Elena Ramirez
