WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO HAS A JEZEBEL AND JUDAS SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4237 2.jpgIf you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you.  And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.

The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship.  Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.

Let me try and explain what this is first.  So you can understand.  

A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal.  Its someone, who has a whorish spirit.  I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain.  Very self-centered.  Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others.  But behind the scenes, pits one against another.  Instigating….

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD.  I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES. 

The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim.  Never accountable.  Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft.  Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties.  Not good.

AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU?  AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY?  II KINGS 9:22.  KJV.  

All of these things God abhors.  You may see all or some of these characteristics.  

The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you.  As Christ knew.  Someone, who will not be loyal to you.  Someone who will be a false witness.  Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you.  Someone who will be used by the devil.

AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM.  MARK 14:10  KJV.  

The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ.  So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.  

AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU?  AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.  MATTHEW 26:15  KJV.  

Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ.  He gave Christ the Judas kiss.  As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you.  Accept it.  

BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS?  LUKE 22;48  KJV.  

But Judas was not accountable.  He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.  

Pride…. One can see that.  Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable. 

I think you might get the drift of this.  So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.  

But yet you do.  Or you can fall victim of that.  Love can cause one to sin.  Love can make one blind.  Even in friendship.  

This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol.  And you have to be careful of this.  Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.  

Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you.  But to God.  If you only knew how jealous God is.  How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.  

Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know.  The hard way.  If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will.  And God knows that.  

God is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy?  Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ.  When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.”  See KJV Proverbs 17:17

And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.

THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS.  EXODUS 23:32 KJV.  

Social media is very revealing, about folks.  And their friends….

If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan?  Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them.  Because you like that?  Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves.  Yet God hates it.  No thank you….I would pass on that quickly.  And I have….

NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS.  AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION;  AND SHE REPENTED NOT.  REVELATION 2:20-21  KJV.  

Anyway….  Its easy for me to forgive someone.  To extend grace.  But when that grace is not extended in return.  It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ.  Because Christ is love.  And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.  

All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit.  This can destroy friendships.  And thats besides the point.  Know more then anything that gets God very angry.  His wrath will be revealed.  

So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties.   I am older now, but wiser.  I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.  

But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends.  And it scares me.  To trust folks any more.  Anyway….

Sin can come in somehow.  But somethings can break chief friends.

A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE:  AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.  

PROVERBS 16:28  KJV. 

Loyalty to God must be evident with me.  This is one thing I strive to give my Lord.  And I long from friends.  So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone.  God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again.  He is my example.  Not people.  

And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot.  That I cannot just justify as o.k. 

If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God.  And depart.  Have nothing to do with people like that.  

So one can now stay away, loyal to God.  It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.  

Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit.  Pray about it.  If you see signs, this could be God showing you.  Take heed.  

And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself.  Then don’t hesitate.  Make it right with God, by repenting.  And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.

Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas.  Their endings were not good.  And one should avoid that.  Look it up.  In a King James bible.  And again, I will reiterate.  It has to be a King James for holiness.  Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.

Maybe this is how you will learn.  By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit.  I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus.  Who calls us to be holy.  

And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people.  I do wish people the best.  I have no ill feelings toward anyone.  Thats not who I am in Christ.  No matter how hurt I have been.  I pray, God bless people.  Lessons of life.  But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning.  God sees.  And I know that.  So I say all of this in friendship and love.  But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.  

ISAIAH 54:17  NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN.  THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD.  ISAIAH 54:17  

Holy King James word. 

In Christ,

WHEN YOU SIN IT HURTS GODS FEELINGS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2I had a thought, earlier, as I was watering my garden.  And I thought, how good God is.  How wonderful is all of His creation.  How thoughtful, kind, considerate, and beautiful with love, are His thoughts toward us.  

But sin, hurts Gods feelings…. when we sin.  

O LORD, HOW GREAT ARE THY WORKS! AND THY THOUGHTS ARE VERY DEEP.  Psalms 92:5  KJV.

And I was thinking, yes, He is silent many times.  He hides himself from us, sometimes, so we will search for Him.  And I am sure he does think about what we do.  

AND HE SAID, I WILL HIDE MY FACE FROM THEM, I WILL SEE WHAT THEIR END SHALL BE:  FOR THEY ARE A VERY FROWARD GENERATION, CHILDREN IN WHOM IS NO FAITH.  DEUTERONOMY 32:20.  KJV.  

Do you see that last part of that verse, God is telling us, there are some who have no faith.  And this is why He hides himself from us.  

As many of you know, I wrote the book, “How To Have Faith.”  Because there was a time, I struggled, and I learned there are principles, in pleasing God, and I have to admit, I learned the hard way.  

But I am glad I did, and I sometimes still trip, and miss it, that is why I always recommend “daily repenting”, and using a King James Bible.   So you will hear His voice, and not another.  So you can be on the same page with God.  Not using a corrupted word.  

But….

As I was thinking this morning, it grieved me for God, that many of us, yes, say we believe in God, but we act like the world.  We continue in sin.  And it made me think, how it must grieve God, how sad, he must be, because we are his children, but many of us do not know truth, that will set us free.  

In fact, I was talking to a man on social media, just the other day, and he could not see how sin separates us from God.  He believed, that once he accepted Christ as Lord and savior, that was it, it was a done deal.  In fact, I see that a lot from many Christians, and they think they are saved.  Yet, they sin.  They think they have a license to sin, because they accepted Christ.  They don’t see the danger.  They don’t see, that un-repented, sin, will cause someone to lose their salvation.  And many don’t, but there are scriptures there that do warn.  It can be lost.  But he did not see this.  Even here, read Ezekiel 33, and Revelation 22:18-19 also warns it for those who do not obey God in using corrupted word.  

I tried to warn him about the benefits of daily repentance, but he snubbed me, and actually told me I was not worth talking to.  Hmm.  The next day, the Lord told me I was worth it, and reminded me, I was His daughter, and an ambassador for Christ.  And to continue to walk in love….And Father gave me this verse.  

BUT FOOLISH AND UNLEARNED QUESTIONS AVOID, KNOWING THAT THEY DO GENDER STRIFES.  AND THE SERVANT OF THE LORD MUST NOT STRIVE; BUT BE GENTLE UNTO ALL MEN, APT TO TEACH, PATIENT, IN MEEKNESS INSTRUCTING THOSE THAT OPPOSE THEMSELVES; IF GOD PERADVENTURE WILL GIVE THEM REPENTANCE TO THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH; AND THAT THEY MAY RECOVER THEMSELVES OUT OF THE SNARE OF THE DEVIL, WHO ARE TAKEN CAPTIVE BY HIM AT HIS WILL.  II Timothy 2:23-26  KJV. 

Anyway….This particular individual, knew some scripture, and “picked and chose” what he wanted from the Bible, but He did not rightly divide the word, of truth, as II Timothy 2:15 KJV tells us. And I believe, if he does not see the error of his ways, he will be ashamed, when he stands before God.  And perhaps will not make it to the Kingdom of God.  Heaven. 

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS, HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  ISAIAH 59:2.  KJV.  

Theres that word again, “Hid” and I thought, Lord, don’t hide from me.  Forgive me.  

I do believe repentance over and over is good, it proves to God, we are serious.  And I believe in daily repentance, because we can miss it. It proves to ourselves, when we sin, and we are sad, humble, throwing away our pride, totally remorseful, for “hurting him” because we sinned, that we know, only His mercy, can free us.  It is not a license to sin.  Remember, Christ told us, even our thoughts can be sin.  

Every stripe He stood, and took for our healing spiritually and physically hurt Him, physically as well as spiritually.  Read 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.  

And we are going to take that for granted?  Shame on any of us, that would deliberately sin, and not take note, how that hurts Him for us.  That we would shabbily take our salvation for granted.  

Just knowing that for me, wants to be more considerate, polite, respectful, and honorable to Him.  With love.  To depart from sin.  To want to please Him. To serve Him, with all my heart soul, and might.  To not treat Him like an ATM.  Or just come to Him, when I need something.  How rude that must seem to be to Him.  Lord, forgive me.  

I guess, thats why I came to the thought, that it must hurt His feelings.  After all, think of all that He has done for us, from the beginning.  How it must have grieved Him, that Adam and Eve sinned.  If only they had gone to Him, and asked Him again, after the devil made it a question.  

…..YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1.  KJV.  

See the devil was testing her, and she did not know truth.  To even have “faith” in what God said, and she sinned, as did Adam, by eating the fruit. 

God was testing them both as well.  And when they disobeyed, that sin separated them from God, and they were cast out of the garden of eden.  God did get angry.  

Don’t think there will not be a wrath for the sins, one does.  Why else, do you think its healthy to have the fear of God, as we are commanded?   I don’t question Gods King James word.  I don’t read something, and question who He is, or His motives, in how He dealt with people.  Or why?  I do this because I see, I need to fear God.   

But many don’t fear God, and its not taught.

Anyway, my friends, you have to dig deeper into Gods King James word.  You have to have fear of God.  You have to pray, you have to walk in love, and you have to try and keep Gods law, and many do not keep the law.  Another deception from the enemy.  But if you search Gods holy word, to understand, then you will start gaining wisdom.  In these matters.  

But first understand, if you truly love God, you don’t want to hurt His feelings.  For many reasons.  You don’t want Him to hide His face from you.  You don’t want to lose the blessings.  You don’t want to make yourself, your own enemy.  You don’t want to reap what you sowed.  You don’t want Gods wrath.  

I think of Judas.  He could have gone to the cross, after He sinned, and betrayed Christ.  He was a disciple.  For all intents and purposes, it looked like he had salvation.  But betrayal to Christ, was a sin.  Do you think he made it to heaven, for not repenting?  NO!

But instead, his sin, caused him to hang himself.  Thats what the devil wants all of us to do.  And un-repented sin, does hang it on themselves.  If only he had taken that sin, to the cross, what a story of redemption that would have been.  

Friends, I hope this helps you to see, if you love God, if you truly care, remember, He created you in His image.  He gave you feelings.  He gave you a conscience.  If you are not seeing the danger of sin.  If you are not seeing, what He has done for you to free you from sin.  You are living a lie.  And where does that come from?

It does grieve Him, but when anybody is hurt, think about it, after a while, the hurt turns to anger, and there are sometimes a price to pay.   We reap what we sow.  I know I have. 

Why pay it, when Christ paid it for you?

Yes, it grieves Him it makes Him sad when we sin.  

REPENTING DAILY CAN MAKE YOU MINDFUL OF THIS…..

I THOUGHT IT GOOD TO SHEW THE SIGNS AND WONDERS THAT THE HIGH GOD HATH WROUGHT TOWARD ME.  DANIEL 4:2  KJV.

LONGING TO LINGER AT THE THRONE OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4567.jpgI just long to linger at the throne of my Lord. Sometimes, the cares we have bring us to His throne. And when you seek Him, with all your heart, and soul, with tears, He listens. He brings hope and joy to your soul.

Go to His throne, friends. Listen to His voice. KJV, truth.  

You go to your King James bible.  Open it, read it, obey God….

See, His sheep, know His voice, and to another they will not follow.  You have to know Fathers voice.  You have to know, that you know.  So you can grow, so you can discern, between good and evil.  The Holy Spirit, will guide you, but you have your part in obedience.  King James obedience.  

THE FEAR OF THE LORD TENDETH TO LIFE:  AND HE THAT HATH IT SHALL ABIDE SATISFIED: HE SHALL NOT BE VISITED WITH EVIL.  Proverbs 19:23.  KJV.  

Fearing God, is a very healthy thing, spiritually.  Let me repeat that, “fearing God is a very healthy thing, spiritually.”  See, in order to grow, there has to be obedience.  And it actually can begin, by the Bible you use, and choose.  

People don’t see that, and they are deceived.  By the language, by the archaic sounds.  They want to understand, God on their terms.  Not His.  But that is disobedience.  II Peter 1:19-21 tells us we have a “sure” word.  It tells us scripture is not up for “private interpretation.”   Look it up, in a King James.  This is how you will grow.  Don’t be lazy with your spiritual growth.  

But common sense, tells you, that if these old scriptures, from the King James, have commandments not to change it, add to it, delete it, that means, its the word to use.  The KJV has been in existence for over 400 years, and there are many scriptures, passages, that warn about word.  But if you are using something that has been corrupted, changed, added, deleted, you will miss it.  

So obedience, needs to be followed.  These three scriptures have the warnings, already, and that should put the fear of God in you, to see.  To obey.  To use the right Bible, and that is a King James bible. 

Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19.  

And I implore you look them up, yourself, in a King James.  That last verse in Revelations, warns one can be denied access to the Holy city.  It warns, their name can be removed from the book of life.  That means the throne of God.  This is very serious business, in the eyes of God, and I believe, their will be the wrath of God revealed for those who disregard this Holy Truth.  

Friends, I know, that I know this, and if I can get people to see this, then I am doing my job.  But you have your job, even as I bring this to you attention.  

Obey God.  Obey Him, so you can truly hear His voice.  So you can grow.   Go to the throne of God, by using a King James bible.  

Blessings, in Christ, 

Elena Ramirez 

 

PLEASE NOTE:  I CORRECTED SCRIPTURE ABOVE, YOU MAY HAVE SEEN IT AS DEUTERONOMY 45:2, THAT IS NOT THE SCRIPTURE.  IT IS DEUTERONOMY 4:2.  THANKS.  

SOMETIMES THERE ARE NO SECOND CHANCES WITH GOD AND PEOPLE… ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1485.jpgSometimes, there are no second chances with God, and people.  As I write this, I sense a bit of anger.  And so I want to be careful with this.  For the glory of God.  

I just see it so clearly right now.  I just see, how life, the life God gives to us, should not be wasted.  I have wasted life.  In so many ways.  I did not know better.  But, maybe, what I can share with you, may bring insight.

And its not over, till God says its over.  But when it is over, there are no second chances, folks, with God or with people.  

Sometimes we just have to see it, and grasp the moment.  For some, I pray, you grasp this.  

For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.  Proverbs 4:2.  King James….  

See God is giving us good doctrine, to guide us, to teach us, to instruct us, and show us who He is.  That I see as King James word, but some folks, waste their time, using corrupt doctrine, and they forsake HIS laws, that tell us don’t change His word.  Because it is holy word.  And corrupt word, does not have the same affect or anointing.  

Or if one gets lazy, and does not seek God, what does that say?  Thats pride.  Thats saying, I can do it on my own. Thats just wrong.  

The world, has denied God, so are we going to go with the world?  I hope not.  See the enemy of God, wants you to miss it.  And there are lots of ways, the enemy distracts us.  Get close to God, so you get another chance.      

But you have to see, what kind of relationship do you have with God.  Are you working on it, with prayer, with love, with fear of God?

Or….If the indication, is there by the way we treat people, what does that say, about the way we treat God?

If we are not loyal to God, in obedience, love, respect, honor, yes fear of God, how can we have these attributes toward others?

I do get angry, when I see Christian leaders, treat God like an ATM.  With their phony prosperity message, that does not call out for the lost.  That does not treat salvation as a priority for this lost world.  I do get angry, when people are misled, by using unholy, corrupted Bibles.  I do get angry, when I see, how the devil has deceived so many.  

But I cannot turn that anger, into hate.  I cannot, be destructive.  I must seek the peace of God, that surpasses understanding.  But I still see the corruption.  So, I am at a place, where I am being quiet, and trying to hear Gods voice.  But I have my part.  In fear of God.  It makes me see, though…. that  we have to do something, we have to do our part.  Why do I care?    

Why?  Because I see the difference.  Been there, done that.  I see, my own mistakes.  I see, my own faults.  I see….  And sadly as well… I see….our lost world.     

Because people don’t have fear of God, or what He commands us.  And those chances, my friend, are dwindling.  Life is not forever on earth!

WAKE UP!

All I can do, is use my own life, as the reference.  And when I see, yes, the many mistakes I made in life, and even in my Christian life.  I grieve!  Yes, I grieve.  For not seeing it….

I pray, there is more time for me, to serve God.  I pray to make it up to Him.  I pray, to be fulfilled…. I pray, to make it right with Him, and others.  But I have to see my own mistakes, by His grace, and correct them, while there is time on this earth.

To grow, to fulfill my calling in Him.  He has brought me to a place, even right now, where yes, I fear God.  Because I see how fragile, I can be.  

Recently, I have been challenged in a few things, some that I will not elaborate here, but I am challenged, but when your health is off, and you know it, you know, that yes, you could leave this earth.  

So, what do you do?  

You try and get right with God, is my thought.  Because someday, I will, and you will, stand before Him.  

I read, a tweet, on Jim Caviezels page, that said something to the affect, “Live life, like its your last day on earth.”

So, my thought was, if thats the case, then I better live, my life, repenting daily.  Walking in fear of God daily, trying to walk in love with people, daily.  Trying to Love God with all I got. I am not perfect.  I have my faults.  

But I notice, I can extend grace to some, but they don’t extend it back to me.  And I have noticed, yes, I have asked God for this, and that, but He does not always give me what I ask.  Believe me, there are many lost dreams, I have had.

But, I am not going to deny God.  I am not going to reject Him, just because He does not give me what I want.  Because God has given me grace, my whole life through…

But people, will deny God, and others…..

People, so prideful, so mean spirited, get these attitudes, that treat life, and others shabbily.  Just because they don’t get their way with people, and with God, and thats wrong.  

See, I do have a history.  And when I look at that history, I realize, all the good things God has done for me.  I realize, I have missed it so many times.  With Him, and with people.  

My own personal relationships, I admit, in some, I have missed it.  Right now, I may have a couple of friends, but sometimes, I see, its only friendship, when I please them.  But if I don’t please them, they are gone….. 

Do I treat God like that?  I pray not.  I have my immediate family, who I cherish.  Who I thank God for.  But when I look at the past, and I see, my own broken family and who they were, and the chances they also had, with me, as I was growing up.  

I pray, to break curses, or  cycles, where, people I loved were only there for a moment.  In the good, and the bad, and when they left, there were no second chances.  No matter how much I longed for that, I did not get those chances. 

So what has all of this taught me, as I vent here?  That friends, God is teaching us, reaching out to us, through this journey called life.  But you can’t stay stuck.  You gotta grow.  You have to change, to be fulfilled.  

Stop looking at God, as an ATM.  Stop looking at Him, as if He has to do something, but you don’t think what can I do, to please Him, or serve Him.  This is where the growth stops, if you don’t try and please Him.  

Stop thinking about self.  Self, is just another indicator of who the enemy is.  See, we can get so preoccupied, with self, in that spirit, that we miss our own callings.  

We miss, how God can use us.  We miss, love.  See chances, are given, but if we misuse them, abuse them, abuse God, and others, we fail.  

I pray, to share this, with love, but yes again, I am kind of angry.  But it makes me realize, every day is a gift from God.  And my gift in return to Him, is what I do with it.  

See, His sacrifice for me on that cross was too great.  I cannot abuse it, by going back to sin.  I cannot abuse it, by not fearing the consequences of reaping what I sow.  I cannot treat people, like they don’t matter.  Even if they treat me like I don’t matter.  

Do you see, what I am trying to say here?

I just realize, and pray, that we all wake up.  Christ could return any moment.  Or our last breath, could happen at any moment.

Stop playing church.  Stop playing sanctimonious.  Or stop playing dumb.  Stop playing with life.  Stop denying God and people.  

Because you know what, we all do sin, we all do come short of His glory. Yes, I hate sin, I hate what it did to me, and stopped my own blessings as I reaped the consequences…

But sometimes, when I look at someone, I am reminded, that I once was where they were.  I had filthy rags.  I am nobody better, then anybody else.  

So, all I know, is though…

I don’t want to grieve my Lord Jesus.  With religion, (rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, or groups, or even by myself, trying to do things my way.)  Or my way, which leads to hell, if you read my past post.  

I just don’t want to miss it any more, to conclude this.  Yes, I pray for more chances with my Lord, and people.  But I don’t want to miss it.  I don’t want to just take things for granted.  Because we never know.  We just don’t know……  

Sometimes, you have to walk by yourself.  And you are not walking alone.  If you make sure, by repentance, that Jesus is walking with you.  You are walking with Jesus.  Just don’t let go of His hand, on this earth, so you can make sure, He will walk you into heaven.

To conclude this:  Folks, don’t let time go by without making it right with God.  Repentance, I have learned, with fear of God, is the best thing, I can do for my spiritual health.  Even on a daily basis.  

With people, apologize, if you need to, see again, its not worth pettiness, or pride, because sometimes there are no second chances.   Please, if you don’t get anything else from my message today.  Make it right with God.  Make it right with people.  For your own sake.  Please.  

I guess, I am just thinking of those who wanted to do this, and that, and did not get that chance, because they did not make Christ, Lord and savior.  I think of that sick person, who wishes they had served God, instead of denying Him.  So they could have had physical health, and good spiritual health.  I think of others, who are headed for hell, because they did deny Him.  And let money, or sin, take priority.  

I think of the broken friendships and family relationships, that could have been fulfilled, if someone had just said, I am sorry.  

But then it was too late, with God, and others….  

I just think, I have to share truth.  I have to share His truth.  I don’t want Him to say, what did you do Elena, with the chances I gave you?  

I don’t want that to be me, or you.  You see, I never want to hear from Him.  I never knew you.  

Read Matthew 7, from a King James, but this verse says it all.  How strange, this is the second time, God led me to give that to someone, and now, I see it for myself as well, more then ever….

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY. Matthew 7:23 King James.   

You don’t want Him to say that to you.  Or even think it.  

Friends, think of the blessings you have, and then do something with it, and about it, for God, for others.  You have your part.     

Hope this helps somebody today.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

DOING THINGS “MY WAY” THE ROAD TO HELL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez”


Version 2Have you ever heard of the song, called “My Way”? It was a very popular song, when I was growing up, in the sixties, seventies, etc.  I think Paul Anka wrote it.  But old blue eyes, Frank Sinatra made it very popular.  And I think even Elvis Presley sang it.  

So, people would be singing it, but the words are very deceptive, in guiding us, because we can get mislead and try and do things our way, and that way, is a road to hell.  I wonder if they know this?  Even Paul Anka, who is still alive.  It would be nice, if what I wrote, now, would bring him closer to God to see the difference.  To know not to do things his way, but the way of Christ.  

Well, the reason, I am writing about it, is because as me and my husband were chatting about doing things our way, and seeing the difference, I told him the things, I learned doing things “my way” is the road to hell.

See, I always have to use my life, as the parallel, between what Christ has taught us, and what I have done.  And I grew up trying to do things my way.  I did have a rebellious spirit, and nature.  I did, get stubborn, and I did not grasp who I could be in Christ.  At an early age.  Even though, I was taught about Christ at an early age.  I still tried to do things my way.  

I have had poor judgment in things, and when I look back, it grieves me.  But why?  Because I tried to do things my way.  The results, were in many ways, not fruitful.  Not good, not fulfilling, in the spirit, to what I could have been.  And we do reap what we sow.  See, when you get older, you only have your life to look at, and if you see, and realize what you have done, you can make it right, if you make Christ, Lord and savior, and do things His way.  

When any of us, leave Christ out of the equation, because He is the way, the truth, and life, we miss it.  I know, because without Jesus, we are truly living life our way.

Thats nothing to be proud of.  I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what successes, you think you have, that actually may lead to more pride, thinking, you are this, that, and the other, you are not fulfilled.  Unless, you make Christ Lord and savior.  And do things His way.  

Look at this King James scripture real close, and again, I put emphasis, on the King James scriptures, because the others have been tampered with, corrupted, and are misleading.  So don’t look at those verses.  Look at what Christ, has made holy, and use word, that is Holy, as “His Way.”

But this scripture reminds us, Christ reminds us:

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE:  NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.  JOHN 14:6.  HOLY KING JAMES BIBLE.  

Even many, who teach Christ as Lord, and savior, and I pray, this is never me, but, you can form a sense of “religion” (rules, regulations, traditions, rituals, that are made by men, and groups) and you can depart from the true spirit, of who you are meant to be in Christ, and fail.  By religion.  Develop your relationship.  

But, you will fail.  By doing things your way.  Even in the name of the Lord.  Because you are doing things your way, by the spirit, and not by Christ, as His spirit, as the guide.  

We have to look deeper at our souls, and the fruit, and we have to identify, with the help of God, to see; Are we doing things our way, or as Christ as the way, the truth, and life?  I get those checks often in my spirit, and in fact, last night, I had a strange dream of sin.  

And when I woke up, I bound it, immediately, I repented, and I cried out to God, and prayed, that sin, is not in my heart.  And if it is there, I ask God to remove it.  See, sin, is a departure of who God is, and His ways, and whatever it is, you may choose to do your way, is not His way, and His truth, and His life.  That you could have.  I never want to be away from God, I remember when I was in sin, and those were the darkest, most depressing days of my life.  

You don’t want sin, in your life.  Sin, will mislead you.  Sin, will corrupt your soul.  Sin, will destroy, the life, you could have with God, if you choose sin, and choose to do things your way, over doing things His way.  Hell on earth is possible, I know.  It will affect your thinking to think you are right, and Gods ways are wrong.  I have seen some folks, think like this, and no wonder the Bible calls them fools.  

The bottom line, is and this should give you the “fear of God” which is very healthy, is that we all will stand before God.  Let me repeat that”  WE ALL WILL STAND BEFORE GOD.  And if you think you get away with things, now, you won’t get away with it, when you stand before God.  When you die. The books will be opened, and everything you allowed, you did, thought of, will be revealed.  That scares me.  Because of Gods judgment.  His ways.  Which are of excellence.  

And I guess, I have grown enough, though, now, to see the difference.  Which I did not, but I realize, if I had not brought it all to the obedience of Christ, if I had continued to live life my way, I might not even be alive right now.  I had some very destructive tendencies, even in my health, that I thank God, these things were not meant to destroy me, because I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  And I was delivered from my way.  By accepting His way.  No weapon formed against me, prospered.  Read Isaiah 54:17 King James.  

See life, is a journey, and you can grow, you can be the best you can be in God, by His ways.  But if you depart from those ways, you become your own enemy.  You can get so full of yourself, and puffed up, because the deception is there folks.  Don’t fool yourself.  There is a devil, and his main goal, is to steal your soul.  Take your crown.  He wants to corrupt you, he wants you to miss Gods ways, and do things the way of him, which will lead you right to hell.  You have to see it.  If you don’t you will only have yourself to blame.  

This is why, submitting to God is so important.  Bringing it to the obedience of Christ.  Because if you submit to God, you are telling God, I want your way, not my way.  When you see you need to bring it all to the obedience of Christ, you are telling Him, Lord, I love you so much, that I don’t want anything or to do anything, that displeases you.   Here are some King James scriptures that will enlighten your thoughts on this, about doing things His way.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  DRAW NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU.  CLEANSE YOUR HANDS YE SINNERS; AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS , YE DOUBLE MINDED.  JAMES 4:7-8.  KING JAMES.  

See how important submitting to God is?  When you do so, it is easier, to resist the devil so he can flee from you.  Getting close to God, makes Him closer to you, so you can be cleansed, and get rid of that double minded thinking.  You get rid of the devil.  

Also please read I Peter 5:5, which talks about submitting to one another, but see the end of this in this verse…..BE CLOTHED WITH HUMILITY:  FOR GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD AND GIVETH GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.  If we are humble, we know God will give us grace.  But He resists the PROUD. Don’t be proud.  If you see that in you, repent and run to the throne of God, and ask Him for help.   

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5.  HOLY KING JAMES.

In that verse, above, do we see that doing things our way, exalts itself against the knowledge of God?  Thats dangerous, and disobedience.   That is doing things our way, that leads to hell.  

I Peter 1:2  ELECT ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD THE FATHER, THROUGH SANCTIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT, UNTO OBEDIENCE AND SPRINKLING OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST:  GRACE UNTO YOU, AND PEACE, BE MULTIPLIED.  

Obedience, and the sprinkling of the blood, sanctifies us, and then there is grace, and peace given to us.  Its actually multiplied.  And it is.  Because there is no peace to the wicked.  Look that verse up.  On your own.  In a King James bible.  

And that my friend is a beautiful thing.  Knowing what Christ did for us.  And to want to be obedient to Him.  In His sight, I am sure.  But you have to repent, you have to make sure, you are trying to do things His way, not yours.  This is where the discernment will come in by the Holy Spirit.  Bringing everything to the obedience of Christ.  It will teach you, how to do things His way.  It will prompt you, remind you, give you wisdom, and guidance, so that you can understand, that in order to please Him, and fulfill your own life, it must be by doing things His way.  

Get rid of that stinking thinking!  Believe me we all can get it, and when its there, its pride.  You don’t want that.  Pride can be the downfall of many.  But we have to be mindful of who Christ is.  

The other day, I got into a strange conversation with someone, who was trying to say, I was rejecting word, when all I was saying is look to Jesus.  The word wasn’t even there, it was implying about word....Look at Him.  See word, if its not King James word, can be misinterpreted in the spirit, but if we always look at who Jesus is, there is no deception.  And this may be too deep to comprehend by some, but God knows our hearts.  He knows what we are capable of.  So if we are just obedient to Him, in small ways, including by using only King James words, we can grasp the rest of it. 

I feel very humbled this morning, as I write.  I feel though, very thoughtful, to want to please God, to want to do things His way.  See, doing things His way, always produces fruit.  Good fruit.  And even as I write, I realize, I want to please God.  I don’t want sin, that is produced by doing things my way.  I want the way of Christ.  Because He is the way, the truth, and life.  And no one can come to God, but through Christ.

So, as I close, let me offer the solution.  Repent to God, for your sins.  Make Christ your Lord and savior.  Remind yourself what Christ did on the cross for you.  Get a King James bible, read it daily.  Confess to others, Christ is your Lord and savior.  Live for Christ, since He died for you.  Because He made the way, for you, in truth, for your life, you can be promised eternal salvation.   Don’t forget to repent even daily.  See we blow it.  I know.  But keep trying.  Through Christ as the way.  

Blessings, in Christ, Elena Ramirez 

 

 

CHANGE YOUR DISPOSITION BY CHANGING YOUR POSITION CLOSER TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

CHANGE YOUR DISPOSITION BY CHANGING YOUR POSITION CLOSER TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Yesterday, I had a terrible day.  I was ticked off.  I was angry.  Sometimes, when I see unrighteousness, I do get angry.  Yesterday was one of those days, because I see so much deception, in the body of Christ, in our nation, and some of these folks, get me angry.

I was in battle.

And to make a long story short, I was out of focus.  And well something happened, that kind of snapped me out of it, but it was not pleasant.

Anyway, I had a chat with my hubby this morning, and I thank God for who he is, because he can sometimes, bring insight to me, inspiration, and minister to me.  I received it.  

Because he reminded me, how you have to sometimes, look at your disposition.  Look at the fruit of who you are, what you are doing, and when the darts start flying, don’t be a dummy, and just stay there, and take the hits.  Move closer to God.  Change your disposition, by changing your position, closer to God.

See, as a Christian, sure we may say we believe in God, but we have to look at our own fruit.  I had some “stinking thinking” yesterday.  It showed.

I see it now.  But sometimes, in the heat of a spiritual battle, we can get stubborn.  We can think we can handle it, we can even dish it out.  And I also saw this story on social media,  author unknown, that reminded me, we cannot:

It was about a snake.  The snake, walked into a carpenters studio, and brushed against a saw.  It grazed it, and it made the snake angry.  Well the snake said, I will show you who I am, and I will use my powers, and strangle you.  So, it wrapped itself around the saw, and the saw, not moving, the snake thought, it overpowered it, and tightened its grip around the saw harder, but because of who it was, with sharp blades, it killed the snake.  

The moral of that story is:  The snake had no right to assume, it could take on a fight with something, that had power, on its own, without even doing anything.  

See, even with me, I should have prayed more.  But I trusted my ability, I got a little overconfident.  I see it.    

See, another analogy, is that we can get so caught up in something, like I was as well, that we lose our focus.  We can be deceived by something, and well the fruit will not reflect that of Christ.  Even though, my cause was great, I was in a battle, with a saw, so to speak, and I was not equipped to handle it.  There was a chink in my armor of God.  Anger, got in the way.  

We can do that.  And I am not a snake.  I don’t take on attributes of being sneaky, mean spirited, or hitting below the belt, like some folks do.  Where one moment, they apologize, but the next minute they go for the jugular.  They don’t fight fair.  You see the fruit.  You see, the pride.  You see the denial, or excuse making, instead of being accountable.  You see, the lies, and false witnesses, and you want to hit back.  But sometimes, its not your job to hit at all.  Lesson learned. 

But I am called to be wise as the snake, but harmless as a dove.

BEHOLD I SEND YOU FORTH AS SHEEP IN THE MIDST OF WOLVES:  BE YE THEREFORE WISE AS SERPENTS, AND HARMLESS AS DOVES.  Matthew 10:16.  Holy King James Bible.  

But isn’t that what the devil wants to do to us?  Deceive us, corrupt us, mislead us, and so we can lose what our focus is, or who we are in Christ?  His goal, is to make us fall, and any of us will fall without Christ holding us up.  When we puff ourselves up, get full of ourselves, with pride, over estimating, our own ability, we can fall.

See, if we also just look at the devil, look at what he does, take our eyes off of Christ, we are putting the devil in a position of adoration, because we think the devil has power.  We can even take on attributes of the enemy, because we are not watching Christ, but the enemy.

We do not, if we submit to God first.  Then we can resist, the enemy, and he will flee.  Because we have changed our disposition, by changing our position closer to God.  

I do so, even now by publicly repenting to God, and asking for wisdom and guidance in these matters.  Because I don’t want to have poor judgment.  

So, in order, for me, as an example, I just see, I have to change my disposition.  I have to move out of the way of the enemy.  Get closer to God, and let those fiery darts miss me.  Practice the fruit of the spirit, and obey God.  

Sometimes, it takes something to move us, but if we are smart, if we see, if we only did it the way of the Lord, well we could miss those darts.  Put on the armor of God.  

Yes, I changed my disposition, by changing my position, and getting closer to God.  

I hope this blesses you.  You know, I always pray, to try to help you get closer to God.

Have a good one.   All glory to God, He holds me up, He heals me, and puts salve on my wounds.  He did that for me today.  With the help of my dear loving husband.  Thank you Father.

DEALING WITH TRUST ISSUES AS A CHRISTIAN ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0002.jpgDo you deal with trust issues?   I am just talking about in life.  But even as a Christian, one can have issues, and challenges in these matters of trust.

See, I am a Christian, and I had to learn how to trust God, from the beginning.  I grew up, with a very good mother, who loved me, but she had “major” trust issues.  

She had been damaged by many, and she trusted no one.  So she was suspicious  and very on guard.  So I grew up with that, yet, I knew it was unhealthy and very off balance, for lack of a better word, to be so untrusting.  

Because it can hinder relationships.  It can cause fear, and God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  

So, I learned to trust God.  

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART:  AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  Proverbs 3:5.  KJV. 

Look at this scripture, its very instructional.  And thats what Gods holy King James word will do, it will instruct, it comforts, it guides, it leads us closer to God, to even understand.  But its holy word.  Other bible versions, are someone else’s understanding not God, by the changing of it, and the words they use.  They make it no longer holy. Or anointed, and you really want the full power, and affect of holy word, from God Himself.  

But as you look at this scripture, we cannot, lean into our own understanding.  Get that quick, when it comes to “trusting.” 

We have to trust God, we have to do so, completely, without reservations, without question to God, though He is gracious enough to answer us, but something about having our faith, to “trust” God, releases something in us, that I call strength, and courage.  

Life is hard, and when people let you down, especially when you trust them, you do learn lessons in life.

I had a friend, who I loved dearly.  I never thought this person, would react the way she did, or do the things that she did in matters of respect.  Including her daughter.  Because I thought, I was part of the family, because of our friendship, we had in Christ.

But she hurt me.  And I really don’t want to get into all the details, or go on about it.  I think I have here, and its really an old issue, and I do want to be healed.  So I want to be careful about opening up an old wound.  

But it affected my trust.  And I even see myself, looking at other people that way, and think, are you going to hurt me too?  I have, done so, already, since this happened, and its not good.  

And I don’t want to blame others, for my experiences, in matters of trust.  But, I find, myself, trusting God more.  Asking for wisdom, and guidance, because I felt burned.  

I don’t think I can trust anybody like I did her, the damage is done.  Sure I forgive, but something changed in my heart, and well, like I said, I was brought up with that, negative energy, so I know, only God, can help me.  So its more of a challenge, now then ever.  

Have you ever noticed, the enemy tries to attack you in things, you have experienced?  Like a cycle it tries to come back.  Well I plead the blood of Jesus, aware, and commit to trust Him more.  To submit to God, resist the devil so he can flee. 

I don’t know where you are or if this will help.  But I share it, I write it, because I know who God is, and only He can help us with our issues of trust.  

As a Christian, I know this.  If you are not a Christian, I recommend you do give your heart to Christ.  Repent, for your own lack of doubt, or trust in God.  Or if you have caused someone, to hurt, because they trusted you, and you burned them.  Again read a King James, the anointing is there, for your faith, in anything.  

I don’t know how people do it, without God, without Christ.  I don’t want to find out.  See thats my reassurance in a world, that leaves Him out.  I won’t, ignore Him, because I do trust God, and thats the greatest strength, I get in life.  

Blessings, and love,
