IS YOUR CHRISTIANITY “SOCIALISTIC” WITHOUT WORKS? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1316.jpegIs your Christianity “Socialistic” without works?

Folks, I just write them as the Lord shows me.  And you know, all I can say, is that the body of Christ, needs to get right with God.

I feel like we are in end times.  I feel like the body of Christ is missing it, and I feel like many of us, take our salvation for granted.  Many believe grace covers it and covers it all.

We are not applying works to our walk with Christ.  That means many are not serving God. Not acknowledging God, being silent.  Not walking in love.  Not doing good.  To be honest, just coasting through life.  Thats so wrong, on so many levels.  I guess, I can say that, because at this point of my life, I see, where I wasted time, and now I do what I can.

Many think salvation, is a done deal, and they abuse it.  It only is a done deal, if you truly repent, for your sins, and know, that we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  If sin, is there, and it is un-repented, you are playing with your salvation. Altar
Some actually think, and as perverted as it sounds.  Many think they actually have a license to sin.

This is what happens, when we are not in our King James bibles.  This is what happens, when Christians go to a flaky church, where the pastor, speaks that, and they take that as truth, and they do not search.  Themselves.  This is what happens, when you omit the Old Testament, and don’t apply Gods law.  Folks, God is a legal God.  He does not change.  He did not flip flop from the Old Testament to the New Testament, and if you think He did, you are very wrong, and in danger spiritually.  He did not cancel out His laws.  The only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death, not His commandments.  Not His laws.  Look it up in a King James.  And another chapter I highly recommend, to read, is Psalms 119.  King James, again.

But…This is the result of corrupt bibles, that are fake.

But many in the body of Christ do not see it.  Why did God give me the term to use, as Socialistic?  Well, I believe if you look at the concept of socialism to begin with.  You can see why it would be applied here in our Christianity.

Socialism, sounds ideal.  It sounds like you get something for nothing.  It sounds like every one is on an equal measure to receive.  It sounds like its for all.  But the thing is, there was a price that was paid to receive Christianity.   By Christ.  His life, His blood, His death, are all symbolic, to the life, we can have, because He was resurrected.

Even now, I pray America sees how wrong Socialism is, and will not embrace that ideology.

So many have died for that flag, for our freedoms, and well, socialism takes away your freedoms.  So does fake Socialism Christianity.  You need to see this.   This is the day before our Independence day, in America, and many of us celebrate this holiday, but if we take our freedoms for granted we will lose them.  Even though the price has been paid, by all who have served this great nation.

Christ did pay the price for all.  But if you abuse it, if you break that covenant with God, by returning to sin, you make it null and void.  And when you stand before God, you will pay for it.  See, if you embrace Christ now, you won’t.  But that legal ruling, is made by God.  You only avoid it, by getting right with Christ.  Repenting….

In Socialism, someone has to pay for it.  And thats the tax payer.  Thats you.

Folks, there is a lost world out there.  Many do not know Christ.  Many are so lost, and they do not know truth to set them free.  Socialistic Christianity, stops folks, from works.

They think its covered, its a done deal, and thats it.  That is very dangerous to play with your Salvation like that.  When I hear of the Prosperity message, to me that is Socialistic Christianity.  It’s wrong.

Christ told us, many would cry out Lord, Lord, and He will say, I never knew you.

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.  MATTHEW &;23.  KJV. 

Why would He say that?  Well for one thing,  because for one thing you did not seek the truth.  You believed a lie.  You let the devil deceive you.  He may say it because your works were not in love.  You got religious.  With rules, and regulations, rituals, traditions, but you forgot about relationship with Christ, which comes by faith.  You started hitting folks with your bible.  And you forgot what Christ did for you.  And yes sharing your faith.  Why are so many silent, when it comes to sharing what Christ did for them?  King James scripture says, let the redeemed of the Lord say so.

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  Psalms 107:2  KJV.

I do say so, whenever I can.  See, I know where I was, and I truly believe if I had not made it right with Christ, I would be dead, and in hell.  Thats how close I was.  It scared me, to have the fear of God, which is the best thing, I can have.

And it made me realize how important it is to serve God, so I do so gladly.  I will not be ashamed, and I admit there are times, I have to ask for courage.  But I know there are times, I have to bring His light into a situation, or there will be darkness.

See you have to have faith.  And faith without works is abusing one’s salvation.

JAMES 2:26 FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO. Godsword

Are you the walking dead? Like in those movies?  Without true spirit?  Get your works in gear, and start serving God.  With the Holy Spirit. Stop sitting on the side lines, stop allowing evil.  Stop being fearful, and get courage, from God, and perhaps save a soul.  

YEA A MAN MAY SAY, THOU HAST FAITH, AND I HAVE WORKS:  SHEW ME THY FAITH WITHOUT THY WORKS, AND I WILL SHEW THEE MY FAITH MY WORKS.  James 2:18  KJV. 

I try every day, to acknowledge God in one way or another.  To show my faith. To that lost world.  I do it on social media.  I don’t have a place of employment to do that.  Nor do I have a church, sadly.  And thats another long story…..

I am limited with contacts.  With friends.  But I do every day, in one way or another try to stir up my faith.  I wrote the book on faith.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

HOW TO HAVE FAITH. And there are principles, that are a secret to many.  But I have them with God, through Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

IMG_0011

http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com THE BOOK THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR FAITH…CHECK OUT THIS LINK FOR MORE INFORMATION.

No you cannot buy it on Amazon, or at the book store.  I just have a few copies left.  And at this point, I am not selling them.  I only have a few left.  I do wish I could, but that is also another story, financially, I cannot.

But, I wrote that book, praying what I have learned, the hard way, because I did not have faith, so it would encourage folks, to see the principles I learned.

I still have faith it could prosper.  But it is always in Gods hands, and I did not write the book to get rich.

Thats why if I do get called to go to a place of worship, I will not sell it there.  I will not be like those, who sold in the temple, and Christ over threw the tables, because they turned a place of prayer, into a store.  That example, really rang in my heart, because many do sell their books, in His house.  I cannot.  But it is not my place to judge, them, but I just cannot.

AND THEY COME TO JERUSALEM:  AND JESUS WENT INTO THE TEMPLE, AND BEGAN TO CAST OUT THEM THAT SOLD AND BOUGHT IN THE TEMPLE, AND OVERTHREW THE TABLES OF THE MONEY CHANGERS, AND THE SEATS OF THEM THAT SOLD DOVES.  MARK  11:11 KJV.

AND SAID UNTO THEM, IT IS WRITTEN, MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED THE HOUSE OF PRAYER; BUT YE HAVE MADE IT A DEN OF THIEVES.  MATTHEW 21:13  KJV. 

But I do try to serve God.  With all my being.  I am a warrior for Christ.  I do try and stand up for His truth.  It makes me sad, when I see Christians, not knowing the truth, King James truth, and they are deceived.  It makes me sad, when I see Christians not walking in love.  Many in the body of Christ think you are judging them, yet we are called to warn.  It makes me very sad, as well, as I am sure it does God, that folks, do not know scripture.  This is from using corrupt bibles. They cannot quote it or even paraphrase it.

It is sad, knowing what I know as truth, and I see many of my brothers and sisters in Christ, going with the world, in believing religion, and if seeking God, they do it for the prosperity message.

Exactly what the devil wants.  It is socialistic Christianity, if you don’t think you have anything to do.  You are deceived, and you are allowing the devil to have his way, when you could be a voice of truth, for Christ.  But if you do not know King James word, if you do not embrace it, share it, write it, you truly do not have the full armor of God on.

I am only telling you this, because I know we all will stand before God.  If I can get someone to see the truth, and serve God, get involved, use your King James bible, apply works, so your own faith can grow, then I will succeed, in defeating the enemy even in my own life.  I will spare you the heartache of knowing when you stand before God, you could be denied access to heaven, because you did not know truth.

We all have gifts and callings, if you could even be a voice against abortion, in Christ you could save lives.  But if you are silent, and all you think is you don’t have anything to do, that is socialistic Christianity, and all I can say is shame on you.  You take for granted what Christ did for us on the cross.

WHEN TRUST IS GONE YOU DECIDE TO WALK ALONE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2903.jpegWhen trust is gone, it is hard to gain back.  And sometimes you decide to walk alone.  I admit, I am a wounded soul.  In some ways.  Yet, I am the strongest I can be in Christ, and I have peace, and hope.  Right now. Which in some ways to me, in the natural it makes no sense.  But in the spiritual, it does.

And I pray to God not to wound anybody in return.  But I think I have.  In fact I know I have.  Because I am not open for communication.  Any more. I have gone silent. Because I won’t give in, and open myself to be hurt again, by those who think I am fair game.

IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN.  PSALMS 118:8  KJV. 

And for that, I am so very sorry.  Especially if you have had a change of heart about me, and see I was true.  But it is too late now.  The damage is done.

I truly love and wish those that I have severed relationships with. The very best.  To  live happily ever.  But I just cannot pretend, I have not been wounded.  So, I am also alienating myself, from others.

For, to be honest, my trust level in folks right now is gone.  People, may say things to me, now, and I cannot just shake it off.  I used to, I gave them the benefit of the doubt.  Extended grace.

THE LORD REDEEMETH THE SOUL OF HIS SERVANTS:  AND NONE OF THEM THAT TRUST IN HIM SHALL BE DESOLATE.  PSALMS 34:22 KJV. 

But sometimes, when things happen lately.  I don’t react.  Right away.  But a seed gets planted, and then it grows, and I realize that some folks just don’t see the error of their ways either.  Its like you write someone a letter, and they throw it away.  Or they gave you the silent treatment….

But you gave grace.  And you wonder, if you cannot communicate, what kind of friendship is that? But you realize that, after giving grace.  You realize that, after a time of reflection.  The seed grew.

It sometimes turns into a bad seed.  And they put it on another person…I don’t want to do that, because I understand hurt people, hurt others, and for that I think its best to walk alone.

So, I find myself wanting to just let go, and walk alone, with Christ, and my immediate family.IMG_4255

I wish I did not have this kind of a testimony, to be writing about.  I wish I had fruitful friendships, trusting friendships.  The kind, that would be strong.  Right now. I wish, that my relationships with people, have not come to this place, where I cannot trust.  But it is what it is.  I don’t frankly understand it.  But I accept it.

I wish no one any hurt or pain, by my decision to walk alone.  But, if I seem to bring out the worse in others, I would never want to make them unhappy by who I just am.  I saw that happen with some folks.  I seemed to bring out the worse in them, instead of the best.  It made me sad…

And some apologies have come through, by some, yet, I just don’t seem to bounce back.  To open myself to trust.  I have forgiven all.  So nothing can be said, to change my mind.  For the trust is gone.  And I am not looking to find it any more.  Its hidden in a place, where only God can touch it.

 

DSC_0027.jpgI have never been one to try and flaunt, or brag about anything about me, because if I am blessed in some things, there are things, I have suffered greatly for so, so I don’t understand when someone thinks, I don’t grieve about some things.  I am always happy to be on the sidelines, I don’t need the glory.  I want God to have it. 

FOR THOU ART MY HOPE, O LORD GOD:  THOU ART MY TRUST FROM MY YOUTH.  PSALMS 71:5  KJV. 

So, when they get jealous enough to compare.  I don’t understand that. I just know Christ helps me.  Anything, I have, everything I have, is due to God, blessing me, and I thank Him.

When someone tells me that they don’t respect me.  I believe them.  When someone tells me they are jealous of me, I believe them.  

And I just rebuke that in the name of Jesus.  Why?  Because I only had the best heart for these individuals, and this is the end result from them.  It is not from God. And they know it!  But that’s between them and God now, and the battle is His, I am letting go. 

O MY GOD, I TRUST IN THEE: LET ME NOT BE ASHAMED, LET NOT MINE ENEMIES TRIUMPH OVER ME.  PSALMS 25:2  KJV.

I do forgive, because I don’t want poison in my soul….

IMG_3449.jpeg

But see, it is that trust that is gone.  That scares me.  Gives me a red alert.  I did not realize how much I could take by some people, I called friends, who I really loved dearly, but I cannot take any more.  So I choose now to walk alone…

Trust is such a precious attribute.  Be careful with it.  Don’t abuse it.

COMMIT THY WAY UNTO THE LORD: TRUST ALSO IN HIM; AND HE SHALL BRING IT TO PASS.  PSALMS 37:5  KJV

My circle, is small now.  My guard is up, my armor of God is on securely, and my trust is gone.

YE THAT FEAR THE LORD, TRUST IN THE LORD:  HE IS THEIR HELP AND THEIR SHIELD.  PSALMS 115:11.  KJV.  

I don’t know if I want to trust anyone ever again.  But God.  And don’t get me wrong, I am not having a pity party, about it.  I am actually feeling just a sense of relief.  I don’t understand it, but I am.  I feel like a weight has been lifted off.

Like my eyes are completely opened, spiritually, if that makes sense, and I am actually grateful, I have the strength to walk away.  You know like after a long storm, and the sunshine comes out, and you just can see things more clearly.  And you just thank God.  Because you never want to be tossed to and fro, by anyone.

Because you see things…..  Things that you may look at and see, but after a while, you realize it is not healthy.  For them, or you.

Knowing God, trusting God, has given me discernment.

There is something so comforting in just relying on God.  It activates my faith.  So though, my trust level in others is gone.  It is intense, with God.  I have faith.  And trust in my Lord.

BLESSED IS THAT MAN THAT MAKETH THE LORD HIS TRUST, AND RESPECTETH NOT THE PROUD, NOR SUCH AS TURN ASIDE TO LIES.  PSALMS 40:4  KJV.  

I want to be careful to change the tone here in my writings, the subject matter.  I am closing these doors.  And I think I have spent too much time thinking about them, writing about them, and grieving.  Time for the joy of the Lord to be my strength.

I WILL SAY OF THE LORD, HE IS MY REFUGE AND MY FORTRESS: MY GOD; IN HIM WILL I TRUST.  PSALMS 91:2 KJV. 

Have a blessed Fathers day, everybody.

HEAL+THY+SELF IN CHRIST =  JESUS GIVES ME HEALTHY SELF.

ISAIAH 53:5, I claim that for you too….

TRAIN YOURSELF TO PRAY AGAINST EVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

Train yourself, to pray against evil.  

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO: AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  Proverbs 22:6  KJV.

Are you a child of God?  This could apply to you, as well as to children, in youth.  Train them.  Train yourself.     

Are you a Christian, have you recognized Christ as your Lord and savior?

Do you recognize you are a sinner?  That you have lost your way?  That you want a better life.  For yourself, and even those you love?  For others?  For the world?  For your country, leaders etc?  Do you see, your own short comings?  

Good.

Now if you can actually say, you have dedicated your life to Christ, then you need to see there are things you have to do in the spirit realm, to maintain a good relationship with God.  

You don’t take grace for granted.  You don’t sin, just to sin, you realize what Christ did on the cross for you, and you want to obey, and love the Lord.  You want to serve God.  You get hungry and thirsty for righteousness, and you long for it, in your life, others, and even the world.  

One way of serving God, is realizing, you are now in the army of the Lord.  If you have repented, and confessed Christ as your Lord and savior.  

You are a soldier for Christ.  Look at yourself as someone, who has gifts and callings, to serve God.  He has blessed you with abilities, that perhaps someone else may not be able to do.  And as a soldier, you need to put on the armor of God.  Read Ephesians 6, from a King James bible.  

You grow.  I know for myself, there are certain things, I did not know, as a baby Christian, but I do now.  God has and is training me still.  But there are some things I know to do, in the Holy spirit, and I have to apply myself.  

One is getting good holy word, from my King James.  As you know, I believe in King James word, as holy, and not corrupted, because it has not been changed.  Word is everything.  It is what God has given to instruct us, guide us, and comfort us, and to know what will be.  

It brings light, insight, but if the words have been changed with the excuse to bring better understanding, you are being deceived, if you use word that has no anointing, or holiness.

Now I want to talk about discernment.  You need to ask God for discernment, when you are a Christian.  To know, between good and evil.  Enough of this flaky Christian business.  That is presented to so many, and they take that as truth.  We are all responsible, for what we know.  Or use, or take as truth.  God will judge us all. Again this is why I highly recommend a King James bible. 

You need to get serious, no walking between the world, and God, you have to start sharpening your own sword.  Be careful about believing lies.  Because that brings on a spirit of delusion.

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE.  II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.   

And I have learned for myself, and even more so, much stronger lately, I have to train myself to pray against evil.  

I PRAY NOT THAT THOU SHOULDEST TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, BUT THAT THOU SHOULDEST KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL.  JOHN 17:15  KJV.  

Sometimes, we look at the world, we look at situations, and instead of praying about something we see, what disturbs us, we just accept it.  And thats wrong.  We have the greatest gift, God could give, and that is prayer.  We have God, who is above all evil, who is good, and who can make the difference.  

FOR THE LORD IS A SUN AND SHIELD:  THE LORD WILL GIVE GRACE AND GLORY:  NO GOOD THING WILL HE WITHHOLD FROM THEM THAT WALK UPRIGHTLY.  PSALMS 84:11  KJV. 

Pray.  We can get cold, insensitive, and actually get numb, to the things we see, that can be evil.  And that can be anything, or from anybody.  

Pray against it.  Plead the blood of Jesus.  I am getting pretty good at it lately, where in the sense, if I hear something in the news, or about people, I pray about it.  I don’t even think twice, I just add a prayer, I pray without ceasing.  I could give examples, but I will never let the devil know, what I know.  It is none of His business.  

And thats another thing be careful who you confide in, in prayer.  Or seek to have a prayer of agreement with.  Because many false messengers are sent out to find out what you are praying about.  Their main goal is to be nosy.  And that is not from Christ.  

So I have learned to be more quiet about what I am praying about.  It is just between me and God.  Unless, I am rebuking the enemy.  So I just pray about it.  And don’t forget about that authority God has given you, to rebuke.  

I tell God, what I see.  For, He sees it too. I tell God, that we need Him to intervene in a matter, and He has been training me, to remind myself to pray.  Not to fret.  I tell Him, that I am on His side.  And that the battle is His.  According to King James scripture. I remind Him what His word says, and ask that in prayer.  

As is the glory, honor, and praise.  But he has taught me in some cases…..

Not to argue, and believe me, that has been tough, because as a truth seeker, I have presented truth, many times, and I can actually say, in some cases, I have not seen results.  So why waste truth with a fool?  Brings light to the scripture that we are not to throw our pearls to swine.  

GIVE NOT THAT WHICH IS HOLY UNTO THE DOGS, NEITHER CAST YE YOUR PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, LEST THEY TRAMPLE THEM UNDER THEIR FEET, AND TURN AGAIN AND REND YOU.  MATTHEW 7:6  KJV. 

I know not to be ashamed of who I am in Christ, and so many times, I try to share what I know to help  someone.  Maybe I planted a seed to some, but this has been draining me, when it is abused, and I am not the young warrior I used to be.  

So I just pray.  Lately, I see more results in praying than talking about it.  Yet, we are called to speak truth, and warn one another.  Many in the body of Christ think it’s judging, but there is a difference. 

What can stop our prayer life?  Being off balance.  Sin. Not walking in love. Being caught up in this or that, and we are not looking at God, but looking at circumstances.  It can paralyze a person.  I think this is one reason, I have gotten off of social media.  In many circumstances.  It just gets old.  Though, I have not closed the door in that, but I am not on as much.  

DEPART FROM EVIL AND DO GOOD; AND DWELL FOREVERMORE.  PSALM 37:27  KJV.   

PRAY!  See we don’t fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities in high places.  Pray against these forces.  

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULES OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.  EPHESIANS 6:12  KJV.    

Even if you are just murmuring to God, a prayer against evil, you will notice you get better at it.  But you have to be consistent, this is the key.  Even if you do not see results.  There are things in the spiritual realm, that may require fasting, or more people praying about a matter.

But, if you begin even praying that God would bring people together to pray against evil, you would see, the fruit of it.  

HATE THE EVIL, AND LOVE THE GOOD, AND ESTABLISH JUDGMENT IN THE GATE:  IT MAY BE THAT THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS WILL BE GRACIOUS UNTO THE REMNANT OF JOSEPH.  AMOS 5:15  KJV.  

Be careful to be mindful of the holy spirits prompting in this.  You will receive instruction.  But you must be willing to obey.  God will not use a vessel, that is not faithful in these matters.  So pray, you are worthy.  But pray against the evil.

IF IT DO EVIL IN MY SIGHT, THAT IT OBEY NOT MY VOICE, THEN I WILL REPENT OF THE GOOD, WHEREWITH I SAID I WOULD BENEFIT THEM.  Jeremiah 18:10  KJV. 

Heres a good place to be reminded to fear God.  You do not want to lose blessings, because you did not obey God!

If He is telling you to pray, or to obey, in any matter, just obey.  But know His voice, the Lord, does not ever tell us to join evil, or to partake in it.  Again a reminder to know His voice from a King James bible. 

More than ever, our world needs prayer, and even the body of Christ is missing it, because the enemy has infiltrated, many churches, and corrupted, many, by bad word, the prosperity message, and fake and phony leaders.  Wolves, in sheep clothing.  

This is why I do not follow anybody, but Christ, just to protect my spirit.  I don’t want fake anointing to flow down to me.  This is deception.  

Train yourself to pray, brothers and sisters.  This is the key.  Train yourself to pray.  Pray often. Against evil.

In Christ,

TURN YOUR WORRY INTO WORSHIP TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4592.jpegO COME, LET US WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN:  LET US KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER.  PSALM 95:6.  King James. 

Sometimes, when you go through things, it actually seems like things intensify.  It seems like it is spiritual battle.  Spiritual battle is different, then being spiritually attacked.  

But one must know how to deal with life, with these battles, one might face.

For me right now, I feel so inundated.  I have a lot on my plate.  I have challenges, here and there, and sadly, I even think I contribute to some of these challenges.  And this has hurt me.  

So, I find myself, wanting to be quiet.  Wanting to be left alone.  Wanting to just heal, pray, and worship God.  

I remember as a little girl, I used to use this process as well.  It was a mechanism, where sometimes, I tried to shut down.  I wanted to process, what I was going through.  I did not want to react.  I wanted to soothe my wounds.  I wanted to heal, because if I have been hurt, I did not always know how to react.  

I don’t internalize my emotional pains, I have always let them go.  I don’t swallow something hurtful.  I don’t let them take root into my spirit, to cause any kind of bitterness, I always take them to God.  

Because the root of that, could be destructive, and I am aware of that.  God has taught me to let go of things, and give them to Him.  And its been very healthy for me. 

If I have to cry, I will cry, if I have to speak my mind, I will speak my mind.  But I don’t let it stay bottled up in me, but there are times, when I cannot speak, I cannot put things into words, and I have to sort things out.  But I still go to God.  

I can get angry.  I can be sharp, and I can come out fighting.  And I really do not like that. About myself.  But I can.  So, when I feel pushed, or I feel like I am between a rock and a hard place, I will come out swinging, and I can say and do some things, I am not always proud of.  

And I think anybody could understand that, there are times, when one says, enough!

Thats why I know, being left alone, at some times, is so important to me.

My mother God bless her soul.  Did not understand that about me.  She did not leave me alone, to just catch my breath, or to just try to let the dust settle, after a disagreement, or a time of differences.  Challenges, etc. 

She would actually push my buttons.  She would go for the win, because I was wounded. When she did these things, it grieved me.  She did not understand my need to be left alone.  It was somewhat one-sided, and selfish on her part, but she did not have that skill of quite understanding me, in these kind of matters.  

I forgive her, I just know, some of her history, and she had a tough life.  Hurt people, sometimes hurt people more.  But still I had to deal with it, but now I recognize when someone is not being respectful to my hurts, or pain, and I won’t put up with it.  

Instead, of letting me be alone, she would take the opportunity, to pursue whatever it was, and it grieved me, because so many times, I just wanted to be left alone.

I have learned through the years, whenever I feel wounded, I have learned to seek God.  To find solace in Him.  To take His holy King James word to heart, and I have learned to turn my worry into worship.  

That requires being alone, sometimes.  Away from people, friends, and yes even politics.  (smile) To process, to pray, to seek counsel from God.

Going to God, does something for me.  He understands me, He knows my weaknesses, my strengths, but He is a Holy God, and a King.  And so, I have to understand my role, as well as I have to understand His.  I cannot have sin, between me, and Him, not if I want answers, so I try to repent.  I try to be humble.  

But I also understand this about God, when we are not right with God, there is no peace to the wicked.  This can cause anxiety.

The devil, has always tried to use things against us, so we will not worship God.  So we would have anxiety.  Christ knew this, when He told the devil….

AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, GET THEE BEHIND ME, satan, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE.  LUKE 4:8 KJV.  

So especially, when I am going through something, I try to get closer to God, in worship. I know, I cannot have any distractions.  I cannot allow myself, to not heal.  I have to seek God, more so, and many do not understand that, about me, but that’s how I go about healing.  

When people do not understand that, and when they pursue something, with me, and they do not let me deal with something, because of my nature, which is bold, courageous, and yes forgiving, they show me no respect, and it does bother me.

They actually act, like I can bounce back, like nothing happened.  And I cannot always.  Some things that are said to me is like Kryptonite, I get turned off. 

So I am not able to just act like nothing was said, or done.  

Not any more, maybe I was able to do that more readily, but now it takes more time.

Even though, I forgive, my guard goes up.

At this point of my life, because of the things, I am going through, and have gone through lately, I am actually alienating myself, distancing myself from people.  Its not that I don’t love them, but I need to mend, and heal.  

I cannot say, hello or goodbye, all I can do is be silent.  I am wounded.  And when I am wounded, I sense anxiety.  The spiritual battle is there.  Little things could bother me.  Personal space, and time, need to be respected.  Its not that you want to be rude, but for me any way, I am at a loss of words.  And I cannot be phony about it. 

I find, worshipping God, turning my anxiety into praise to God with prayer, and thanks, helps me.  I turn my worries to God.  I take everything to His throne.  

And just pray to heal.  I am at that point right now, where I just want to heal.  But I am being silent, and I am being quiet in the spirit, avoiding people, social media, and things that disturb my peace.  

I do it, because I know what works for me, and getting closer to God, always is the remedy.  God is a spirit, and it may be complex in some ways, but so are we, so thats why, when our spirits are troubled, this is when especially we must turn our worries into worship.

GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.  JOHN 4:24  King James.  

I turn my worry into worship.  Writing, even here, helps, me sort my feelings out, and if this blesses someone as well, then I know God will use it, for His glory.  Please leave a comment, let me know if this, or any of my writings bless you.  Its nice to know, now and then. 

Lord, I praise you, I worship you in spirit, and in truth, and ask for your holy spirit, to guide me.  To heal me, because I do feel wounded.  I take this step, in releasing it, no pride, or ego in this, I cannot handle it without you. So I worship you, for being my counselor, my hope, my redeemer, my deliverer.  How sweet it is to go to you.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2942.jpegFOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ARE OPEN UNTO THEIR PRAYERS:  BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THEM THAT DO EVIL.  I PETER 3:12 KING JAMES.

Yesterday, I told a famous young actress, (name withheld) to fear God.  I told her that was the best advice I could give her, because there is a hell, and if she did not get right, that could be her eternal future.  

Because she did something, and I won’t mention it here, but she did something that was very offensive, and very obscene with the Holy word of God.  I told her to repent.  I told her, to get a King James bible.  I also told her to be quiet, because she has been getting advice from the devil, and it showed.  

I hope she heeded my advice.  Because God is not mocked.  Where do people, get off, thinking they can say foul things about God, and they won’t reap what they sow?

It can leave a bad taste in your mouth.  I don’t know.  I just know, I want to please God.  

I just know, that I can trust Him.  But we always have our part.  

In that same day, I had a discussion, with a brother in Christ.  A man of God.  But we seemed to have a difference of opinion about grace, and repentance.  

I come from a place, where I am grateful for grace.  But I never want to abuse it.  And I see some folks, and I am not judging this brother, but I see, that many times, people rely on grace.  Or they think grace is a license to sin.  And that’s so wrong.  But they are not accountable for their own actions.  Which can turn into offenses, or sin.  

So because of that, I believe in daily repentance.  I know, I have my part, and I always want to be on the same page.  With God.

I believe in asking God to forgive me, daily.  Because I do fall short.  And I never want to get to that place though, where I think I am there, or I have made it.  Because then I would have no place to grow, or to learn, or to expect to see Gods hand.  See, I think there is a danger, of taking things for granted.  Taking God for granted.  Even taking people for granted.  He lifts the humble, but turns from the proud. 

We talked about fearing God.  And you know, I do fear God greatly.  I know some day I will leave this earth.  But when I do, I want to hear well done, good and faithful servant.  I don’t want to hear.  I never knew you. 

It just made me realize even more, how much I love the Lord.  It made me realize, every day I have to prove to Him, that I love Him.  Thats the least, I can do.  He did His part on that cross for me.  He gave His life, sacrificed for me, His life, to take my sins away.  He suffered, greatly.  For my sins. Which were many.  

And I still fall short.  I see it.  I am not trying to discount, anything He did for me, but I am human.  I have had poor judgement.  And I just want to be in His good “graces”  but I want to have that discernment, to do whats right.  His eyes are over us.  And I want Him to hear my prayers.  But I know, God is not mocked.  I know, He is against them, that do evil.  

I try to tell people, boldly, this.  But many times, it just falls on deaf ears, and it is not received.  I hope, I plant a seed at least.  But only God can make that grow.  

I don’t ever want to come from a legal place.  And hit his people with the bible, or be legalistic.  But, you know, God is a legal God, and His law, His commandments do need to be acknowledged, known, and honored.  And I see so many Christians, who do not even think they have to honor the law, because they think they are free from that.  The only law friends we are free from is the law of sin, and death.  Look it up.  It is in Romans 8:2 King James…. 

I am aware of my words.  I am aware of Gods laws.  Things, He has implemented as principles.  Like what goes up comes down.  Like, we reap what we sow.  And nobody wants to reap curses.  But there are consequences to things we say and do.

I try to speak life, and I do try and walk in love.  I don’t want to be a flaky Christian.  I am a different kind of Christian, it seems.  I do seek truth.  I do seek to know His King James word, and I do seek to see love, from other brothers and sisters in Christ.

When I see the pharisee spirit, or a wolf in sheep clothing, I walk away.  I pass.

And when I don’t see it, and I see God does not get the glory, or honor or praise, I wonder….

Have you ever read a story, and it was a miracle.  Of some sort, yet the person, does not give God the glory, honor praise, or even the thanks?  But they talk about it like it was just a coincidence, etc.  And that bugs me, for God.  See, people do not see who He is, in matters like this, and if it was me, I would be giving God the glory, honor and praise.  Yesterday, I saw a brother in Christ, just ignore my thought on that, and it bothered me for God.  But, oh well….

These are things, I do not accept as right…. 

I am so grateful for the times, He has been near, helped me, saved me.  I will never forget that I was at the bottom of the barrel.  So desperate, so lost, so polluted, by my sins.  That yes, I did seek Him, and continually will, until I leave this earth.  No one can never tell me there is not a God.  I know different.  

It does get me righteously indignant when they say that.  But I will try, and give God all the glory and praise, because I am grateful.  Thats the least I can do.  But I don’t want to come from a place of being in the least.  Because everything He has done for me, has been in abundance.  

This morning, this scripture really is taking root in my spirit.  And God’s word will do that.  Thats why I recommend, always use holy King James word.  It’s anointed.  It is not corrupted, or changed, if you read my writing, you know, I hammer this.  You will hear His voice, and to another, you will not follow. 

Let Gods Holy King James word, take root in your spirit.  You would be surprised, you can grow.  You can change.  You can grow fruit, even in the harshest of winters.  

Be blessed, in Christ,

Just sharing, Just My Thoughts…

GOD IS HEALING YOUR WOUNDS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4086.jpeg

FOR I WILL RESTORE HEALTH UNTO THEE, AND I WILL HEAL THEE OF THY WOUNDS, SAITH THE LORD, BECAUSE THEY CALLED THEE AN OUTCAST, SAYING THIS IS ZION, WHOM NO MAN SEEKETH AFTER.  JEREMIAH 30:17  KJV.  

What a beautiful promise, from God. Thank you Lord, I sure feel like I can relate to this.  So I will receive that.  

Spiritual wounds, emotional wounds, we can get them.  We can even get them after we have been saved.  By our Lord, Jesus.  But He is not the one who wounds us. 

Wounds from people, family, friends.  

These wounds sometimes, do not manifest themselves right away, but something can trigger a wound, to be exposed, and the bleeding starts all over again.

I have dealt with emotional wounds, myself, and I have had some wounds open up again.  Where, I just seem to really be my own worse enemy.  

WOE IS ME FOR MY HURT! MY WOUND IS GRIEVIOUS; BUT I SAID TRULY THIS IS A GRIEF, AND I  MUST BEAR IT.  JEREMIAH 10:19  KJV.  

It sometimes is a  learned behavior sometimes, and well, we really do have to look at our Lord, for guidance in these matters.  We have to see, what we are doing.

For me, I am a warrior.  In a lot of ways, but I have to be so careful about that, because it is not healthy always to be in that mode.  Things sometimes have triggered that in me, and many friends, or people do not understand that, so they keep their distance, and yet I sure could use a good friend now and then.  

But at this point, lately friends seem to elude me.  I have lost a lot of friends lately, who do not want anything to do with me.  I don’t blame them.  I respect people, in the sense, that I don’t chase them either.   But that has wounded me.  

ALL MY INWARD FRIENDS ABHORRED ME: AND THEY WHOM I LOVED ARE TURNED AGAINST ME.  JOB 19:19  KJV

See, I try to offer grace with their own wounds.  But when grace is not extended to me, I can let go.  Yet, I have to study myself, and I have to see, where I have gone wrong.  And I know sometimes, I can see, that I am not flexible.  I have made mistakes in friendship. Being too blunt. And yes being blunt can hurt others.  Though, that was not my intention.  So I repent. But when you believe in something, like I do in God, I cannot compromise that.  So, it makes me lose friends.  

TO HIM THAT IS AFFLICTED PITY SHOULD BE SHEWED FROM HIS FRIEND; BUT HE FORSAKETH THE FEAR OF THE ALMIGHTY.  JOB 6:14  KJV

So, I rely on God, He is my greatest friend.  In fear of God.  But I do pray for these friends, who have seemed to have walked away from me.  

AND THE LORD TURNED THE CAPTIVITY OF JOB, WHEN HE PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS:  ALSO THE LORD GAVE JOB TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE.  JOB 42:10  KJV. 

I have learned, sometimes God will use people, to help us, heal our wounds.  But sometimes, its best, to keep your distance as well from toxic people, or people, who do not understand, you’re calling, you, or your own wounds.  

When I was younger, and I had walked away from God, those were the toughest years of my life, because I did not have God in my life.  People don’t understand, when they choose to eliminate God from their life, they are actually choosing, to let the enemy in.  His goal, is to kill, steal, and destroy.   He wants to wound you.  He wants to stop the plan God has in your life.  He wants to distract you.  

We have to see, God did not intend that to be.  He intended for us, to rely on Him, to have a life abundantly, we must do things His way.  His ways, are not meant to control us, or for him to fence us in.  But when you seek Him, in obedience, it does go well.  He gives us a choice.  He is a gentleman, He does not make us do anything.  But you have to choose Him.  

I just want to encourage you to seek God.  Truly seek Him.  Stop, look at what you are doing to yourself.  Don’t let old habits in. I am writing this for myself as well today.

I feel wounded lately.   As an American, a Patriot, I have felt the need to fight. There are things going on in our nation right now with this wall, that is causing me to fight.  To fight for our country, for truth, for hypocrisy, to go away, and yet, I have to pray more.  I hate seeing people be so mean.  To our President, to others, and I hate seeing division.  So I have been fighting.  My goodness, though, it seems to bring out the worse in me lately. 

My wounds, my own personal struggles, seem to be getting in the way, and I realize only God can take care of myself, and our country.

When I realized, I needed God a few years back.  I cried out to Him.  He came to me.  I sensed, the Lord, binding my feet, putting me on His shoulder.  So I could get to know Him.  To hear His voice. I sensed Him, taking salve, and putting  it on my wounds.  Cleaning the wounds.  

Now this is something I want you to take to heart.  But He reminded me, that my problems happened, because I had walked away.  Not because He left me.  It was as if, He was teaching me the lesson, to never do that again.  And I will not.  We are like little lambs, we can wander off, but I realize for me, I will never and can never leave His side.

There is an enemy.  Who wants to distract you.  To take your eyes off of Jesus.  To look at your wounds.  Instead of God.  Then you could have a pity party, and that’s not healthy, or good for you.  Because you will be in that party all by yourself.  

We may not always understand.  But we have to do our part in obeying God.  Seeking Him.  Departing from things, people, that may not always have that sense of who God is, and let not their toxicity get in you.  Especially in those wounds that are open.  See the enemy will use people, even people you love.  

It becomes a wound.  If you are not aware of it.  I sense this for me, anyway.  

I must stay close to my Lord.  And maybe someday, like even today, I can let the Lord heal my wounds, and I can stay close to Him, and really see myself bear fruit for Him, in love as well.  

I just want to encourage you.  I know, Gods ways are not our ways.  And sometimes, we say and think, if God loved me, why do I go through these things?  

Because friend, in these times, we are tested, we can also grow, we can also change to understand, why and who He is, and sometimes, if we are not “wounded” we cannot become who we are meant to be by Him.  He prunes us.  He corrects us. Whom He loves, He corrects.  He loves me.  But sometimes it hurts.  

He loves you too.  

God bless you, I pray your wounds, are healed.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

REFLECTING ON WHO CHRIST IS THIS CHRISTMAS DAY 2018 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4347.jpegIt is Christmas day, I just put my turkey in the oven.  And had some coffee with hubby.  Our son, is in the next room sleeping.  We will open our humble presents later.  We did not go all out, buying lots of gifts for a couple of reasons.  But we are content, we know why.

My tree is humble.  I did not put up our big tree, for a couple of reasons.  But I feel Christmas in my heart.

I feel it, because of Christ.  I feel it because I know, truly the reason for the season, is because of who He is.   And I was thinking, of how yes, He came, with angels announcing Him, and a star that guided wise men, to seek Him.  The saying is true.  Wise men still seek Him.

Luke 2:10-14 King James, is a great gift of scriptures, because it tell us about His holy birth.  

AND THE ANGEL SAID UNTO THEM, FEAR NOT:  FOR BEHOLD I BRING YOU GOOD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY, WHICH SHALL BE TO ALL PEOPLE.  FOR UNTO YOU IS BORN THIS DAY IN THE CITY OF DAVID A SAVIOR, WHICH IS CHRIST THE LORD.  AND THIS SHALL BE A SIGN UNTO YOU:  YE SHALL FIND THE BABE WRAPPED IN SWADDLING CLOTHES, LYING IN A MANGER.  AND SUDDENLY THERE WAS WITH THE ANGEL A MULTITUDE OF THE HEAVENLY HOST PRAISING GOD AND SAYING.  GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN.  

In these King James scriptures so much is said about what God is trying to tell us.  To give us good tidings, but to announce who Christ is,  to give us a sign.  And to remind us to always praise God.  I do even here.  Lord, I praise you, and thank you Lord Jesus.  And yes to have good will toward people.  I will elaborate on that, but even here, yes I do.

See, because if you do seek and praise Him, you do become wise.  But there are ways, and principles of God, that cannot be compromised when you seek Him. He is the way, the truth, and life.  But you have to do things His way, in His truth, for truly life abundantly. To give Him glory.   

I actually have learned in the way, it is in the Bible one may use.  It just goes to show that the King James is over 400 years old.  Its holy, and anointed.  It has power.  When I read His word, I feel and sense it is Gods voice.  Not another, who disobeyed, God in this, and corrupted His word, by changing it, deleting it, or adding to it.  

So, this morning, as I share this verse.  I want you to think about who Jesus was, and is.  See even though, He went on the cross for us, and died, He is alive.  He was resurrected.  He went to hell, and got the keys, from the devil.  So we can be free.

He is as alive as you and I, if we sat down and talked.  This is why I have relationship with Christ.  I do not have a religion. 

But here is one gift, He gives us, I want you to reflect on.  By His stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  King James.  

BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES;  THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  

I know He can heal anybody or anything really.  And I know this for myself, because He has healed me physically, on many an occasion, but also spiritually.  I truly know this.  Because I was so very lost, so very broken, and yes still broken in some ways, that I will not elaborate on.  

But it does not hold me back any more.  I accept that there can still be some healing.  In my lifetime. I don’t limit God, and I know I just must trust Him.  

But I want you to understand, when you are healed spiritually, you truly can sense your salvation.  You get an understanding, of what was, and is, but what can be with Christ.  I am happy this morning spiritually, and truly the joy of who He is, is in my heart, mind and soul.  Healed.  Its Christmas morning, glory to God!

I just thought, why He came.  Yes, to save us.  To be the answer to sin, to take our sins, to cleanse us of the curse of sin.  But to heal us.  

The world, so tries to tempt us, with this or that, and the enemy knows that.  I have not always been perfect in such matters, and I have had poor judgement, even with people.  

In fact, I had a “scrooge dream” of sorts last night.

I dreamt of a friend, that I thought was a friend in Christ.  I loved this lady dearly.  For many years, I thought we were sisters in Christ.  

Well, we did have a parting of ways, over a year ago, and I have written here about it, now and then, and I have tried to let go of it, but I think I am now healed from that friendship. 

I dreamt, I was very angry with her in my dream.  I was so angry, that if I could, I would have slapped her.  I told her, that, and exactly how she hurt me, and then I dreamt a door bell rang, and I woke up.  

It made me think that I must still have held great resentment for her actions, but I saw how ugly it made me feel.  It was like God was telling me that He was taking that hurt away, and to just let it go.  I thought, I had, but obviously my dream told me differently.  The door bell, I heard was a warning, I believe to let it go in His love.  

It was a Christmas dream that released me.  Because I do not ever want to be that way, with anybody.  I want to obey God, in forgiveness, and His love.  So, I am letting it go.  By even writing it here.  I am letting go of what I felt.  It is done, over, and a lesson of life.  I pray God bless her, as I go on. 

So, I truly believe one of my gifts of healing spiritually, is for me to be healed.  From that friendship.  The sense of betrayal I felt from her.  Even to God.  That I sensed from her, in choices she made that made me feel a Judas spirit and a Jezebel spirit. When I think of her actions.  See, if you play dumb, you will be dumb.  And she did do that, on occasion, but I always extended grace.  But she could not do that for me. We cannot change people, only Christ can change us.  

But I sense that today, I sense that, for many reasons, with great anticipation, and hope.  

I feel free, in Christ.  I feel hope, and love, and joy, and my trust in our Lord is so sweet.  

I sense the baby Jesus in my heart, to make my life, more innocent again, like a child like faith.  I hate sin.  I hate, what sin, can do, when we allow it in our lives.  I know the difference.  I know what Christ has taught me, but I just long for His presence as my present.  This whole week has been a lesson, in so many ways, that I have felt conviction to do this or that.  

I know by His stripes, I am healed.  Physically and spiritually.  I praise God, and give Him glory.  May you have a blessed Christmas.  

I know we all can have different reflective moments of who He is.  That the star that shined, above to guide those wise men, can shine for you. But you have to ponder on Him.  You have to be like those wise men, who seek Him.  You have to see, that there are things that will try to distract you from Him.  But don’t let anybody, or anything, separate you from the true love of God, that can only come from Christ.  

Merry Christmas, and happy New year.  

In Christ,
