People, don’t get it, they do not understand how important faithfulness is to God. Or how important it is for their own growth.
They go through the motions, they go through the religion, the traditions, the rituals, the motions, that religion teaches. Some even think its like magic, and how wrong they are to even make that comparison.
But they do not understand it comes with a discipline, to have faith. It is a matter of the heart. To understand what Christ did for us on that cross. To get faith.
I wrote my book “How to Have Faith” and I really have learned how important my faith is in God.
So much so, that I know, I would have not come this far, if I had not had faith in God.
Well, here is a secret, I will just tell you here….
But if you are dealing with trying to know God, trying to obey God, trying to even have faith….
Then be faithful, to make the commitment, to God, to your family, to your country, to truth, to love, and that means all people. The hurting, the broken, our world needs compassion.
To see, your heart needs that change but it requires the commitment. People cannot treat God, and country, and their families as disposable, and go on to the next best thing. And think they will produce faith. No you won’t reap that, or produce that.
Thats not being faithful. In Gods eyes, that is idolatry, that is disobedience, and that is sin. And it brings a curse.
Oh sweet repentance.
We all need to do that. But if you cannot see, with eyes to be faithful for that which is really true, including a King James Bible. What are you faithful to?
I see you are deceived. Just what the enemy wants to do in each and every one of our lives. Don’t be blind, when faith can cure the problems, we have in our world. Your problems. Because God is on the throne!
To begin being faithful. Speak Gods word. Speak Gods promises. Be committed to disciplining yourself. Keep doing that.
Yes, temptations come. But with God there is a way out.
Being faithful, to God, your mate, your family, your country, will produce faith in your life. Be faithful to that which is good in the sight of God. Don’t fool yourself He sees!
What will happen, is as you begin to be faithful. Your faith will kick in, when it is needed. Because life happens. But if you don’t do this, what will you have to rely on when situations occur? This will strengthen you. You won’t freak out. So get the mindset to be faithful.
But here is a thought, prevent the bad of life, by faith! My goodness, pray, God can turn anything around.
It is a secret. Yes, I give all my principles in my book, but I cannot give my own livelihood away, without making God first priority. And I am committed to be faithful. To God, and my family, and my beautiful country. Before making money.
It is one of the most important attributes we can have. Because it will produce loyalty, and loyalty to God, means you are faithful. You have faith.
Its a secret, as simple as it sounds. For faith…. Be faithful.
THIS IS A FAITHFUL SAYING, AND THESE THINGS I WILL THAT THOU AFFIRM CONSTANTLY, THAT THEY WHICH HAVE BELIEVED IN GOD MIGHT BE CAREFUL TO MAINTAIN GOOD WORKS. THESE THINGS ARE GOOD AND PROFITABLE UNTO MEN. TITUS 3:8
By Elena Ramirez
How do we add time to our life? Well if you love Jesus Christ, and you have accepted Him as Lord and Savior, you know you are guaranteed eternal life. With Him. After you die.
And if you are reading this trying to learn, I recommend, you make Christ your Lord and savior. Repent. Confess your sins, to Him, and ask Him in your heart. Try to learn. His ways. Beware of religion. Mans ways. Beware with all your heart, the deception that can come from the devil. Know Gods truth. Know Gods laws…..
And if you learn something here as well, that you thought was different, I recommend repenting as well.
But how do we add time, long life to our lives on earth? Hmmmm…..
Well I believe this is the answer. If you will bear with me, in trying to understand. So lately the issue, of the law and grace has been brought to me. And I have been pondering on it more so, and praying and thinking about it. And I know, God is using me to make a point. As He led me to my Bible to find the scripture below. But please read this.
I know many in the body of Christ, really take to misunderstand scripture from Paul. In the new Testament. And what amazes me, about this whole controversy, about being under the law, and grace….
Is that people forget that the law, which was first given by God to Moses, does not change. God did not flip flop, He did not change His mind, when He sent Christ to fulfill the law. Scripture says, He is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God says, it in the Old Testament. MALACHI 3:6 FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT, THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED. And it also says it about Christ, the Son of God. In the New Testament. HEBREWS 13:8. JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY AND FOREVER.
Maybe what Moses added, in religion, as law can be abolished, but not what God commanded even in the Ten Commandments. Yes let me repeat that, maybe what Moses added, but not what God commanded. Moses was a man. Paul was a man. But God is God. That makes it the final authority. And again, He does not change. And when I say what Moses added, I am talking about the sacrificing. This was documented by Moses.
Grace, which is a beautiful thing, that yes, I rely on, still reminds me that the law, is the foundation of our faith. God said He would write those laws in our hearts. But you have to know them. By reading, and embracing His law. When we know Gods laws, put it in our hearts, and are mindful of it, it keeps us from sin. By the holy spirit, we are reminded. It is the standard, to know. When one does not know. We search for truth. It is the foundation of truth.
It is a balance. Scripture tells us, that a false balance is an abomination to God. So we have to find the balance. But I guess what bothers me about all grace messages, that I hear that gets off balance, is they do not teach about the law. How can Christ truly be our cornerstone, in balance, if we don’t know Gods ways, His commandments? Not mans ways. Gods ways.
How can we grow, and have discernment if those laws are not taught? People, think because the law, according to Paul, is a burden, yes even a curse…..in some ways, that is misinterpreted from Galatians 3. That they won’t even look at law. Yet scripture tells us, if we do not keep the law, that is a curse.
BUT THIS PEOPLE WHO KNOWETH NOT THE LAW ARE CURSED. JOHN 7;49. Please note this comes from the New Testament.
I know, by my own walk, how much I rely on grace. Because of my own sins. When I repent, and I still do…I rely on the mercy and grace of God.
But I also know, that the law of God, the commandments, teaches me what God expects. To be honest, if I had taken those commandments, even the ten commandments, the law, to heart as a young woman, I know I would have avoided heartache. But we reap what we sow. I reaped sin, because I did not know them. And the wages of sin is death. Oh how we should teach Gods commandments His law, to each other, and to our children.
His standards yes are of excellence. His ways, we can never reach. Because He is holy, and we all sin we all come short of the glory of God.
But I want to know Him and try with all my being, to try and keep His ways. NOW I think when we get off balance, we can just think grace will do it for us, but it can’t without knowing His law. How can our hearts, our souls be pricked to want to repent?
Are we going to throw away all the other scriptures that remind us to keep the law, by just one thing Paul said, and that was misinterpreted? Misinterpreted by bad Bible versions, and not looking closely at King James word. Why do you think I always recommend a King James. Here is another reason why….
Look at Psalms 119 from a King James very closely. That long chapter, deals with the Holy word, the commandments, and the law. The ways of God.
Are we going to throw away the truths from the Old Testament, and just think the new Testament, which is the new covenant, that it will change our hearts? Why are they both in our King James Bible then, together. Combined?
Hmmmm…I cannot deny the law.
What is the basis of our faith, if we do not know and try to keep the laws of God? We can only accept what Christ did for us, if we understand the law. But we don’t throw it away.
The only thing I see from the old testament, in the laws, that were made, that makes the covenant different. Is that of the sacrificing. We do not sacrifice anything, any more. Because Christ is the sacrifice. Christ is….The lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Which makes us free from the law of sin and death.
ROMANS 8:2 FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
But those other commandments, and laws….cannot be abolished. When we know this is what God gave us to better our lives. To give it length.
If you don’t believe me, believe God, believe this scripture. Do you want long life, peace? Then take this to heart…
MY SON, FORGET NOT MY LAW; BUT LET THINE HEART KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS; FOR LENGTH OF DAYS, AND LONG LIFE, AND PEACE, SHALL THEY ADD TO THEE. PROVERBS 3:1-2
Blessings and Love, may you see this truth, in Jesus name, our Lord. Amen. If you can see this, you can and may break curses over your own life. I am claiming this truth, and pleading the blood of Jesus. Because sickness, that causes death, is a spiritual thing. And if that is understood, about the law then the physical healing can come forth and break the curse. Remember, those that know the law, are not cursed. (see above scripture for validation)
In Christ, and His love,
Please invite me to your church, ladies group, or Christian function.
Just thought, I would share, and announce another new blog, I have here on WordPress.
“Do You Ever Ask God?”
I want to ask questions, that make you think, inspire you to know what God thinks, so you can ask Him.
I want it to be a place of prayer.
I want it to be a place of order though, not where some random question is hurled at you. If I share a question for you to ask God, I want it to be a place, where you can get the answer. By Gods holy King James word.
But I want to inspire you to ask God. To seek our Lord, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. For His glory.
I hope it blesses you…
I have already established some questions there. Check out the posts.
Please check it out, and sign up for the blog there.
Blessings, and love Elena Ramirez
Click the link it will take you there….
I title this post this way, to make the point. That I know, that I know, I am a faith helper, to help you, and others in their faith in God. But I want to make it clear from the beginning. Its not about me. Its about God. Its not about fame, or prosperity or even being acknowledged. Which can easily begin pride.
You can know something, but you don’t have to have pride, when you do. Many times, people will have gifts and callings, and they forget it is a gift from God, and they think its all about them. They think they are, then superior. They think, that the ability they possess, is the reason for their success. Or that separates themselves from other, and makes them better. Wrong. Why? Because first of all God is not a respecter of persons.
FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD. ROMANS 2:11
Well, I want you to know and more then anything else in fear of God, I tell you… God wants to get glory in it.
I AM THE LORD: THAT IS MY NAME: AND MY GLORY WILL I NOT GIVE TO ANOTHER, NEITHER MY PRAISE TO GRAVEN IMAGES. Isaiah 42:8
And, anything, I do to help you in your faith. Because again, God has gifted me, for His glory, is to show you His ways. So He can be glorified. And truly He does deserve glory, for all of the wondrous things He can do. And does. For His creation, for His power, for His healing abilities, and so much more. For He gives life, and He can take it away. His ways, are not like our ways.
FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD. Isaiah 55:8.
So, how do we begin, to get Gods thoughts? How do we begin to get His ways? I believe with all my heart, it begins with the bible we use. You see, the King James is old, and has been preserved. For over 400 years. God knew. Just this century men, and publishers began playing with the Holy word, and changed it. They disregarded the warnings. But we can see the warnings from the King James. To get Gods thoughts. To get His ways. And I think if we begin to see that, we can begin to have faith.
We live in a world, where faith, is not always encouraged. If it was, everyone would be talking about who God is. They would acknowledge Him. They would not deny Him.
Just recently, I saw a motivational speaker, talking, about the abilities people have to get success, or to make a difference in this world. And this person, did have a sense about him to inspire. To motivate, with good ideas. But there was one thing missing. And that was the foundation of knowing God. And bringing God into the conversation. Without that foundation of God, we have nothing to stand on.
You see, without God, we are missing the point. We are missing, the truth in why we are created. Our thoughts, become empty, humanistic, without, seeing our whole being, really does depend on who God is, and who He is in our life. We become self absorbed, but that can be cold. That can be empty, without the spark that God can give, and because of who He is. I wrote more about that in my page above, entitled “Conversations.” Where I was discussing it with someone.
Anyway, we all need help. There are times, we have to come to the bottom of the barrel, if we do not make God a priority. Life is not easy. And when there is an enemy, who Christ warned us about, who comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Without God in ones life, we can fall. We can be our own worst enemy, because we have not make Christ, the way, the truth, and the life.
But there are things we have to begin to do. We have to develop our faith. This is why I wrote my book. “HOW TO HAVE FAITH” By Elena Ramirez. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com
There are things, I have learned, by trial and error, as well with success, how to develop my own faith. But you have to try.
If you deny God, you deny the only true chance, to be the best you can be. With or without gifts and callings, if God is not the foundation of your life, your life, will truly not meet its potential.
Once you stop denying God, and start searching for Him, you are then on the road, to make Christ the way, the truth, and the life. You also though, have to have good doctrine. And this is so very, very vital, to finding out who God is, but also hearing His voice clearly. To have the mind of Christ.
I say this, again, and again, because there are many bible versions out there but they have been corrupted, by the revisions, and changes. The voice that comes from the King James bible, is the voice that is spoken by the Holy spirit. But if you make changes to that, you will not hear Gods voice, but the voice of some publisher, or dude, or dudette, who changed it. And that voice from its origin, is not the voice of God, but the voice of the enemy, the devil. And this is where the deception is. I know along with this more then anything, you have to be careful, in which bible you choose.
Not only do I warn you. But you must know, according to scripture, we are warned, not to change, add, or delete it. The most strongest warning comes from Revelation 22:18-19 and this warns one could actually lose their salvation. Please see it.
I do recommend the King James.
So pray my friends, draw close to God, learn who God is. Seek Him. Seek to obey Him. Be thankful to God. This is also a very important key. We can overlook. Start appreciating and thanking God, for every little thing. Even if it is little. Little things grow. Look at it as seeds.
I do want to help your faith grow. I do want to help you. But you have your part. If you deny truth, if you deny true instruction. You will not get the results you long for.
You see, you have gifts, and callings yourself, that can bring glory to God. But if you do not get this right, even here to begin with, you will not meet your full potential. You will miss it.
You could miss it so much, you could lose your Salvation, because you were deceived. Heaven and Hell are real. But if you do not search for truth to find heaven, Gods way, you could be your own enemy, and make hell on earth your reality, and future after death as well.
This is very important to see. Because sometimes, we are given chances, but if we do not do what is right, we can set the plan for even eternity. You do not want to miss it.
So, I pray, you are inspired, to talk about God, search for God, and truly sense with Him, and in Him, you can meet your potential. Studying Gods word, your King James Bible, and hiding it in your heart, will produce the fruit that gives evidence to your own faith.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
IT IS WRITTEN, THAT MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD. LUKE 4:4.
Did you know that whisper, you hear, is the Holy Spirit, telling you to repent, when you have a guilty conscience?
Did you know there is a danger, a spiritual danger, when you have not made Christ your Lord, and savior, and you listen to your own understanding, and you do not trust or incline unto God to guide you, in that sense of conscience?
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. PROVERBS 3:5. KING JAMES
Atheists don’t recognize it, even some Christians don’t recognize that whisper, people who are rebellious will not see it, or hear it, but if you know whose voice it is, you will consider it, and consider it as truth.
You need to repent. We all do. And I even recommend daily. Because daily, we can miss His voice, if we are not in tune to God.
You see, God instilled that voice in all of us. He each gave us a conscience. But what you do with that conscience, will either be your growth to fruit, or it will become your destruction.
And no doubt about it, you do have to make a choice. You see, God will speak to you, He wants to woo you. He wants you to know Him. He wants to love you, and have fellowship with you. He wants to be your friend. He wants to heal you. He wants to ensure you have a place with Him when you die, and leave this earth. But the choice is up to you.
That guilty conscience, is telling you, over and over again. My son, my daughter, you did wrong. You are not thinking clearly. But let me cleanse you. Let me take that sin. Let me, help you grow. Let me, give you my mind, so you can have a sense of direction. Let me give you peace. Let me comfort you. Let your mind be at ease with me. This is why I give you my King James Bible, to give you instruction.
But He God, our Lord, is a gentleman. He never, ever pushes Himself on us. But if we do not listen, that voice will depart. The Holy spirit will leave. Because God though He loves us, will not be in the midst of our sins, or our disobedience. He is Holy.
But I have to warn you, be aware to know whose voice it is. You have to know the difference between conviction and condemnation. The voice of Christ will convict you. To warn you, to guide you, to love you. But He will not condemn you.
Condemnation comes from the enemy. It will tell you there is no hope. It will tell you give up! Don’t listen to that voice, don’t fall for the defeat that their is no hope. There always is with God.
You know, God has spoken to me so many times. And I have learned to hear His voice. And I am able to distinguish between His voice, and the enemies. He says, we will know His voice, and to another we will not follow.
TO HIM THE PORTER OPENETH; AND THE SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE; AND HE CALLETH HIS OWN SHEEP BY NAME, AND LEADETH THEM OUT. AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM: FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM: FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS. JOHN 10:3-5. King James.
I recommend reading all of chapter ten of John from a King James just to get a sense of His voice.
Gods voice is patient. Gods voice is love. But Gods voice, has standards, that need to be acknowledged, in fear of Him. Because the consequences, is sin, and death.
And this is the enemies voice, it is prideful, it is lying, and it is mean spirited. It is in denial. And yes rebellion. Because the enemy, does not want you to meet your potential in Christ. It wants you to self-destruct.
Some think they are going crazy, literally, but if you heed my Fathers instruction, you will see the difference.
For with Christ it is love, and life eternally. And how much sweeter it is, even here on earth, knowing His voice, guides me. It protects me.
It warns me, at a moments notice. I may get that gut feeling, and I know, that I know that I know, when I am wrong. I know instruction. I know when I obey, it goes well. If I do not listen to that whisper, I miss it. When I am wrong when I do not obey. I see the future, for we will reap what we sow, without repentance.
I know when I insist on my own way. Or when I am only thinking about me, and not someone else. When I do not listen. And I have to repent. He tells me when I am wrong. It just does not sit well with my spirit, when I am “guilty.”
So many times, when truth is presented, if we are not in a good position, with God, we will not hear that voice. In fact, the more you rebel against that sweet sound of truth, the further, and further you will get from God. It will be like an echo, that will fade, like in a tunnel.
It will make you cold, it will make you indifferent, it will steal your sense, of right and wrong, and you will become like an animal. An animal that is possessed, by a devil, that will “instruct” you to do that which is wrong, with no sense, to know, you are hurting yourself, and maybe others. It will blind you, and you won’t even know. It will deceive you.
See, God is a spirit, and when we worship God, we have to worship Him, in spirit and in truth, so we always have to be aware of the whisper, we listen to in our conscience. (see John 4:24, King James only)
For it will either be good or evil. Have you ever seen a commercial, where there is an angel on one shoulder or a devil on the other? The goal, is to defeat that devil and allow God to take the place of that devil. And even here, I will say know whose voice you listen to. Because there are many counterfeits, and false voices. Not all angels are good angels….
If you do not know Gods voice, you will get cold. You will be deceived. Your heart, will become indifferent, stony, and even deaf.
Dear friend, do not let that voice, that sense of being cold, control you. Do not let it cause you to self-destruct. Or to hurt someone else.
When I was growing up, when I did things that were wrong. I saw how they “controlled” me. Like smoking, it made me smoke, I craved it. Yet I saw, how it hurt me. I became weak, physically, lazy, and well we all know smoking is bad. But when you are caught up in any sin, it will control you.
I hated that, in fact, I still hate anything that is not of God, because it is sin. I don’t want anything to control me. But God. So, I am glad I listened to that small voice, and obeyed God, I asked God, take this desire away from me. And He did. He did it for my mom, and she told me how to ask God, and to obey. I did.
But He took it further, and got me to see the root of all my sins. For you see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; Romans 3:23 King James.
So if you think you are o.k. you don’t need God, think again. Maybe your conscience is so full of “pride” another characteristic of the devil, that you think, you are fine, without God, think again. Because we will all bow before God. We will all confess Jesus as Lord, when we stand before Him. Don’t let even that pride, confuse you. Because you will reap what you sow, even now, on earth. But after life, there is hell, and you do not want that for your future.
You see, right now, even as I am prompted to write. I know God wants you to hear Him. I have learned to obey God. I have learned to run to that sweet voice, to receive counsel. By going to my King James Bible, and to my Lord in prayer. Because it is truth. Even writing this, is by sweet counsel of the Holy spirit, because God wants to reach you.
Friend, I just have a strong sense, that if you deny this, that what I have wrote already, that you are rebellious, and even when friends, or family tell you the truth, you always have to feel like you have to challenge it, you have to fight the truth, because you think they may be judging you. You reject it.
I see it myself with others, who do not see the truth, but think it is judgment. We are called to warn one another. So I warn you, be careful with that voice you hear. Be careful, with what sense of right and wrong you use to navigate your way in life. A good moral conscience, can only be clear, when Jesus, is that sense of right and wrong.
Please, listen to God, go to Him, don’t be ashamed, to listen to your whisper of a conscience. It is God calling you. Go to His throne. Kneel before Him, tell Him you are sorry. Perhaps tell someone else you are sorry, cleanse that pride, let Christ embrace you.
Did you know apologizing, to someone, will bless you? Because you are then letting God speak to you. He tells us to forgive, but we have to sometimes ask for it.
Let Him record, your repentance and humbleness before Him, so His voice will be stronger. Get a good King James bible, and daily seek Him. Friend, the whisper, will never leave when it is Christ. You will always know His voice, to have the mind of Christ.
Much love, and blessings, Elena Ramirez
