First of all, as my disclaimer:
I am not a psychiatrist, I am not in the business, of telling anybody, why they have a mental illness.
But, I am someone who has learned so much from God. And I have seen things in the spirit realm that have taught me, there is a connection between spiritualism and mental illness. Or the battle in the mind. The sense of no peace, the challenge of being stable. Or unstable.
It comes from two sources. And you have to see this from the perspective of your own spirit. Either good or evil. God or the devil. And the foundation of your mental health, will be determined by your spiritual health.
Who rules your spirit? This is the question, you most definitely need to ask yourself. To find out yourself within, who rules your soul? Because this will determine your behavior, and your motives, your mental health, by your spiritualism.
By the choices you make, with God, or the devil. You have no other choice. You may think you do, but it will always result from the consequences, of the choice to believe in God. Or the enemy.
By your choice….this is always a choice. But the principles are in place, and will determine “fruit.”
To obey God, to take His commandments, His law to heart. To fear God, to depart from evil, and to submit to God. Or to give into the devil. To disobey God. With Temptations, disbelief, etc. See the difference.
Scripture tells us, “submit” to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. That key word, is “submitting” to God. Until you do, you will have that battle in the mind. See the enemy is a spirit of confusion. He is known to come, kill, steal, and destroy. He is a mocker. He is jealous, he was of God, so he is also jealous if you try and make God your Lord and savior. He wants to steal the glory from God.
SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU. JAMES 4:7. KJV.
So, if you do not believe in God, you will be tossed to and fro. That spirit, will dominate you, and your behavior, so that you may do things that are not kind, good, or even healthy for yourself. The spirit, will lead you to do things, that are evil. To even think evil. You may have not acted on those thoughts, but they are there, and that is sin. For lack of a better word. So that will dictate to you, and control you, in what you do.
THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, TOSSED TO AND FRO, AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. EPHESIANS 4:14. KJV.
See the above scripture, reinforces what I am always saying about doctrine, because other bible versions are corrupt. And it deceives. You will be tossed to and fro, even if you think you are safe, your not, because your word is corrupt, if you use these fake versions.
If a person, is totally submitted to Christ. Even by the word they choose in a King James. Wanting to obey God, fearing God of consequences of sin, prayerful, in a relationship, the spirit, of God, will lead. There will be no mental illness.
FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM? BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. I CORINTHIANS 2:16 KJV.
I don’t care what people think or try to dictate to me, I know the difference. They have not walked in my shoes. They may mock. But God is not mocked, and they will reap that. But I know, I have had my part, to try and please God. To pray, to obey Him, His commandments. To love….
You see, I was lost. When I was lost that spirit, of the devil led me, and I made so many mistakes in judgment, and in my own personal life. My moral code, was damaged, because I did not submit to God. I actually had no moral code. Or fear of God. Concerning consequences on earth, or if I had died. And that is a very dangerous place to be. Because we will all stand before God. Hell is real. Hell on earth is just as real. I thank Him and praise Him that He saved me, taught me.
But when God found me, and I recall the night, I had a revelation of who Christ was. I submitted to God. For your own revelation, think of what Christ did for you on that cross.
Now you cannot, be partial in this, and just say you believe in God. Because scripture tells us, even the devil believes in God.
The key is totally giving your heart, life, mind, soul to God, so you can grow spiritually. So you can have peace. Scripture also tells us, that there is no peace to the wicked.
Begin by repenting. Even if you don’t think you have done anything wrong. This cleans the slate. Be humble in the sight of God. Ask God to forgive you. Even for unbelieving. This is why I actually believe in daily repentance. Because we can sin, even unknowingly. and we all do sin, folks, and come short of the glory of God. Our works, can be filthy rags….
The way to enrich your mind, is get a King James bible. As you know, I do not support any other bible. Because they are corrupted. Exactly what the enemy wants you to do, so you get static. You get part truth, part lie. You will not grow, until you change your word. And you may have a battle in the mind, until you do.
Stay away from things or situations, that feed your spirit. Like evil movies. Evil books, anything that can plant seeds of evil, or doubt in your mind. Stay away from evil people. Toxic people.
You have to have the mind set, to want to please God. And when you do you will be released, your eyes will be opened, and you can begin the process of healing mentally, because you are healing spiritually.
If I start to watch a movie, or read a book, that I know has evil spiritualism, I put it away from me. You don’t want to tempt yourself.
And you don’t want to let in spirits, that have been cleansed back into your soul. They will come in worse, in greater capacity, that is not great for your soul.
THEN GOETH HE, AND TAKETH WITH HIMSELF SEVEN OTHER SPIRITS MORE WICKED THEN HIMSELF, AND THEY ENTER IN AND DWELL THERE: AND THE LAST STATE OF THAT MAN IS WORSE THAN THE FIRST. EVEN SO SHALL IT BE ALSO UNTIL THIS WICKED GENERATION. MATTHEW 12:45 KJV.
The bottom line is, to be in fear of God, by choosing His Holy spirit, to guide you. So, you can be healed mentally. I truly believe that. With all my heart. See you fear God, so you don’t have to have fear in the mind of something or someone else. Thats the key:
FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND. II TIMOTHY 1:7. KJV.
I always recommend, finding help, if you are in that desperate place. But God will help you, if you seek Him. And I hope you find your way, take this to heart. Because Christ, is the way, the truth, and life. Read John 14:6 from a King James.
Feel free to share this post, you might help someone, see why they act the way they do. You might save a soul.
Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez
FOR ALL THE PROMISES OF GOD IN HIM ARE YEA, AND IN HIM, AMEN, UNTO THE GLORY OF GOD BY US.
II CORINTHIANS 1:20 KJV.
I do praise God and give Him glory, for His promises He keeps. I rely on them. I know in this world, people will let us down.
This photo, are remembrances of promises made, in friendship, with a sister in Christ.
They are cards, and promises, she sent through out the years. I have so many of them. I have kept them through the years. Because they blessed me, and they promised friendship.
I don’t have the heart to toss them. But I cannot bear to keep looking at them. Either.
Our friendship dissolved, a few months ago. And I wonder, what poisoned her heart, so very much? Toward me, that she won’t have anything to do with me. I have talked about it, in my other blogs, and I don’t mean to rehash it here.
But I don’t understand, how someone, could call me a sister, a friend, pray with me, laugh with me, and be a confidant, and then just say, “Oh it was just for a season.”
Yes, there was offenses.
Please note: Two days after I wrote the post. This following indented part is now being revised and edited. I did list some of the offenses here, because I was just venting. I think it still wounds me, but I won’t be healed if I keep talking about it.
And, you know, God knows, I love the lady still as a friend, even though, she and I no longer communicate. I wish her well. I pray God bless her. See I want to come from a place, where I am walking in love, and I had always committed, to her, that a friend, loves at all times, so I am aware of the scripture that says, love covers a multitude of sins. So, I am removing the offenses from this post.
But it has taught me, and it taught me harshly, I will never trust people again. Not like that. People will not always keep their promises. This is proof here.
But more then ever, I do trust God and His promises. You see, He will never leave you or me, or forsake us. He has proven it. He has done so very much for me, by all of His promises.
As long as we trust Him. And His promises.
Friend, I don’t know you, but I implore you trust Gods promises. Maybe you are angry with God, but don’t be. He loves you, and can change things. I know, He has for me, my whole life.
Trust His promises. Claim them. Read them over and over, speak them, share them, proclaim them…..Let them get into your heart, your soul, your mind, your spirit. Let His promises get into all of you.
And then just obey, to receive His promises. Seek Him first, His Kingdom, and His righteousness. And all those other “promises” will be added.
His promises are real, and they are tangible.
He has been so loving and kind to me. And my King James Bible, reminds me of His promises. Because it is Holy, not corrupted by men, who broke their promise to even not to change it.
Because it is a commandment not to change His word. Read Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19, and there are other scriptures that attest to this. To His promise to those who disobey Him in this.
Thats worthy of so much praise, and even though, I have learned all of this as a valuable lesson in life, it has brought me closer to God.
I praise God, and thank Him, for everything….
Even this, He knows. And I just put it all in His hands.
Love is my guide, as I praise Him. I choose to continue, and walk on. In obedience to God. Staying in the light. Knowing darkness, being unforgiving, hating, separates us from God.
Let us praise God for His promises.
Blessings, and love,
I have a brand new blog, entitled: “PRAISE GOD BY ELENA RAMIREZ” Sign up for it, and check it out.
Its here… just click the link.
There are signs, there are signals, one might see, if they have a friend, that goes to the dark side.
And you grieve for them, because you love them. But you cannot do anything. Because God gives us a choice. Its always a choice.
But when someone, purposely has pride, will not be humble, will not forgive, will not communicate, will believe a lie, and actually fight you, to maintain all that, hate.
Well….all you can do is walk away. When someone, will bring up offenses, over and over again, that is not forgiving.
See, the enemy, has deceived them. And when any of us, purposely disobey God in matters of forgiveness, well, thats giving place to the enemy. Thats going to the dark side.
See, our words do matter. When one makes a commitment, to love God, and love one another, one takes it to heart. You don’t just say it when its convenient, or when its going good. But through all times.
But I was not the one who made the choice to close the case but her. And, to depart from that, is a choice, and its a choice, that brings darkness. God sees.
Scripture says, a friend, loves at all times, not when its convenient. Or when, everything is alright. Love, does love through, the disagreements, the silence, and even, the hate.
See, I know, I love someone, someone, I called a sister, a friend, who for so much showed friendship and loyalty, to me, but when it came down to it, she was not accountable, to her own behavior. I still love this person, but I see, she has stepped into the darkness. And now I just grieve for her.
Because now she is just someone, who wants nothing to do with me, ever again. And I respect that. It does hurt, but I am grateful, I have my armor on, and I will quench those fiery darts from the enemy, that he uses, from my frien-enemy to throw at me.
I am careful, always, to offer forgiveness, because I know myself, that if we are not pleasing God in this, He will not forgive us. And the record shows I did. But she rejected it.
I may have made mistakes, in fact, I know I did, in friendship with this person, I am thinking about. But the grace was not there for me. And I kept seeing it, and yet I offered grace, but she would not. She offered me the silent treatment, closed the case, and let obscenities be spoken about me. That is not love.
So, when you don’t see grace, that is a signal, that this person, has their blinders on. Sad thing is, if you keep your blinders on, and do not obey God, You can miss it. And walk right into the enemies camp, of darkness. And he only comes to kill, steal and destroy. Even friendships, based on prayer, and God. Especially those kind, and that was the kind of friendship we had, at one time.
Sad thing is though, when you see other friends, contribute to that, and take sides, well they have gone to the dark side with that person. I REBUKE THAT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS. I MARK THAT, AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM EITHER.
We pray for people, but we also know, its a choice. You want to pull them out of the fiery flames, but when people silence you, want nothing to do with you.
You go, on, with Christ. Christ said, as His disciples, we were to love one another. He said, that we were to forgive. He said, that love would show we were His disciples. I have tried, but I am done.
I will try and not write about this person, ever again, concerning this person. Because this person, did not care, that she wounded me. But this is how I heal. And I have nothing further to say, you see, I tried. And I know it.
I have so many cards from this person, so many reminders, of a commitment, that she just forgot about. So I may do some purging, of gifts, and reminders.
Make sure you have done all you can in love, and forgiveness, and let the record reflect that. Because there is one. And God sees.
If you can relate to my friend, I implore you to repent to God. I don’t expect an apology at this point, from her, but if I can warn someone, don’t go to the dark side.
BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. JOHN 13:35 KJV.
Blessings, and love,
SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez
I have seen this a lot lately, no respect. No respect, for boundaries, friendships, authorities, our civil liberties, for life, for the unborn, for people, for anything, it seems like any more.
There is no fear or respect of Gods laws and commandments. For so many have thrown out His law, out the window, and think grace has covered it. With this stinking thinking, so many have hooked onto, and they reject the law. Thinking they are free from the law, in the new covenant. Think again… God does not flip flop! He does not change. He did not change….
THEREFORE THOU SHALT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO FEAR HIM. Deuteronomy 8:6. KJV.
There is no respect. People say what they want to say. They mock what they want to mock, and they don’t think of the consequences, for even their own good.
People are not taught this, when I grew up, we were taught to respect. I was. Even if you don’t agree with someone. Even if you think they are wrong. There is a way to communicate, without being disrespectful. Like yes, sir, yes, ma’am…..
I am so glad I was, taught this, because it taught me, to respect the fear of God. I fear God. I know, even in my own life, I have reaped things, because of my own rebellion. When I see, that someone should know better, or they have not corrected even their own family, or friends, to respect others, by people I love, I am shocked.
My own ignorance, or even like my mother would say. My own stupidness. Has taught me more then ever about respect. Yes, oh for years, I was grieved that she told me that, but at this point, I honor what she says. More then ever I see….I was stupid. But stupid, can get wise.
I know that too. Its not too late if you stop, and see the error of this. I respect who I am in Christ. With all my faults, and believe me I know I have had terrible judgment in some matters. I know that there are lines not to cross, in matters of respect. With myself, and yes with others. For my own good.
See, what happens, is we do reap what we sow. Its a principle, folks. Like what goes up, comes down. It just is a principle.
BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. GALATIANS 6:7 KJV.
And when I see so much of disrespect, and even with people, I love, it grieves me. It has to grieve God as well.
And I am not here, to make light of this. People need to see there are consequences. When someone crosses a line symbolically, against somebody with disrespect, and even God. He sees that. He does not bless disrespect. Vengeance is the Lords…
Oh our Lord, is gracious, He is merciful, but people forget how to repent to Him, and to apologize to others, and to respect authority. To respect life, and it brings in sin, and destruction.
We should all be fearful of God in this. For our own good. I am not going to get into the many details I have seen recently. But….It has been a lesson in life.
But I see it, even as our country is so divided. I see it, and I wonder what will we reap, in all this disrespect? Individually, and as a nation, and for our souls. Because God is not mocked folks.
YE SHALL DO NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN JUDGMENT: THOU SHALT NOT RESPECT THE PERSON OF THE POOR, NOR HONOUR THE PERSON OF THE MIGHTY: BUT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL THOU JUDGE THY NEIGHBOUR. LEVITICUS 19:14. KJV.
And bottom line is, we reap what we sow. Maybe you won’t see it now. But it opens doors to the enemy. Its his goal, to come, kill, steal, and destroy. But you will see it for sure when you stand before Christ, when you leave this earth. Because Christ could very well tell any of us. “I never knew you.”
AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY. Matthew 7:23 KJV.
It is iniquity. Its sin, to have that spirit of rebellion, that is disrespect.
So much, that it could determine, hell or heaven. Nobody, wants to hear the hell and brimstone message, but its truth. And that is reaped as well….
Well, I just pray, whoever reads this would have a good heart to heart, with God. Because if you start with Him, it will go well. He will teach you, about respect, but it comes with the fear of God, and the consequences He speaks about in my King James word. He corrects those who He loves.
HOLD THOU ME UP, AND I SHALL BE SAFE: AND I WILL HAVE RESPECT UNTO THY STATUTES CONTINUALLY. PSALM 119:117. KJV.
Don’t you want to be safe? I do, I embrace this scripture. And all of Gods word. See thats just it. You take all of Gods, King James scripture, and connect the dots, and it makes sense. But you know better to not embrace, these fake versions, so you won’t get blinded. Because there are commandments there too, like Revelation 22:18-19. kjv. (Look it up)
But if you don’t even sense the Holy spirit, prompting you. Or you mock, even me, as I warn you in love, well….. its sad, and I don’t wish bad to anybody.
But I know there are consequences. I know, we reap what we sow. And I know…. Gods ways are not our ways, but we should very well stop and see what we are doing. Or we don’t grow.
If you have disrespect it may be, because you do not fear God, and we are commanded to fear God.
YE SHALL NOT THEREFORE OPPRESS ONE ANOTHER: BUT THOU SHALT FEAR THY GOD: FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD. LEVITICUS 25:17 KJV.
But…You may very well, be headed to meet the fear of God. And its a terrible thing to fall into the hands of our living God. Without the fear of Him.
IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD. HEBREWS 10:31 KJV.
Blessings, and love, with respect, reverence and fear to my God….

REMEMBER THE LOVE THE GOOD TIMES TO GO ON EVEN IF YOU ARE HURT ~ By Elena Ramirez
Sometimes, people have to speak things over us, by God so we can see it. So, this is what I will do for you, as my husband spoke this over me.
You see, I had a very dear friend, who I loved dearly. And we were friends for over 25 years. I loved this lady dearly, and you know what she loved me. She was a very generous lady, a very kind lady, in Christ. We both were prayer warriors.
But people change, and I suppose I did too. And well the enemy divided us up. I never thought, I would see that day, but it did happen.
And I won’t go into all the details, but when respect is not given or received, or when one is rejected, well one walks away. I did. Maybe I misunderstood, but since she would not clarify it, thats what I interpreted.
Anyway, long story short, its been over a month. Since we have talked. And I don’t expect her or me to budge in this. Its not that I have pride, but I know when I have done all I can and so, I know I could not add anything more.
But I found myself getting bitter about it, angry, yes I told her I forgave, and I do. But sometimes, you can war within yourself in these matters. I did.
Last night my husband and I were briefly talking about it. And I said, I just feel indifferent now. Not that I don’t care, because I do, but I just am disappointed.
He told me, you know, you need to just let it go. You outgrew each other, and just remember the good in her, she is a good person, and for what it was worth, she blessed you, you blessed her, and now its done. Its over.
Something about his words, ministered to me. I went to sleep finally at peace about it. I prayed God bless her. She is a very kind, and generous person, and she made me laugh, and we were good friends, but sometimes, things change.
People outgrow each other, for different reasons. I suppose she outgrew me, and not that I outgrew her, because I accepted her as she was.
But I accept her choices now, and I RESPECT, her reasons. Even though I do not understand. I can go on.
Perhaps, you struggle, with someone, from your past. Someone you love. A friendship, or even a love. Remember the love, the kindness, the friendship, and don’t demonize them, or hate them, but just release them, with the love, the good that bound you.
See you have to make sure poison, of unforgiveness does not affect you. You have to make sure you are doing your part according to Christ. I cannot control the situation, but I can control how I react to it. I release her in Christ, because she was a gift.
There is a saying, if you love someone, let them go, and if they are yours they will return. I love my friend, enough to walk away, and let her go. I don’t seek to return, to her, nor do I think she seeks to return to me. It is what it is. But I accept it now, with forgiveness in my heart.
But I have peace, and thank God for the times, we were friends, it nurtured me, and I rejoice in the gift of what it was then. It was a gift.
But some gifts, are returned to the sender. No matter what the heart felt intention was. If it was not true, it will show itself. See gifts are just something that is icing on the cake.
But if the sentiment, does not follow up with respect it does not prove itself.
Oh well. God bless your day.
