I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person. It took the blow of it away. It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense. I could relate. But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love. That did my heart good. So good I am writing about it.
I do, admire when someone apologizes. It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry. I made a mistake. I was wrong, please accept my apology.
It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more. It seems like pride, takes over often. And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them. Or makes them look inferior. But not to God, He sees….And He will judge.
So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it.
With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy. Thats the wrong approach. Getting into someones business.
Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us. It really does.
I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me. And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment. It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.
So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses. I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive. But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.
Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say. “You know what I made a mistake.” They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.
They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.
Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.
Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere. But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive. You see, being unforgiving, is a poison. And you don’t want that in your soul. So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.
I really do respect it, and love seeing it. If someone apologizes. That tells me, they want to grow. They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.
But to each their own. I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.
Sad thing is, because one never knows….
I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.
See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong. Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out. And you may need to do some major repenting. Because you are hearing the wrong voice. Thats not Christ.
Something to think about, “Just My Thoughts,” today….
Blessings, and love,
Hey folks, check out my new blog. Its entitled:
PRAISE GOD BY ELENA RAMIREZ
Its all about praising God, and in relation to scripture, I write my thoughts on the matter. You can go to this address, just copy and paste to your browser. Or click the link. Sign up for this blog, and that one, and there are others.
I have been having some technical problems, with some of my links. But plz check it out.
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.
I want my Christian brothers, and sisters to see this. I plead with them to know truth. I speak to all people, but how can a Christian, who is not seeing this, actually able to minister effectively?
I know God can use any bit of truth, even the smallest. But when the “lump” is compromised. When the truth, is distorted, into part truth, and part lies. The enemy can come in, and deceive. Let no man steal your crown, Christ warns. Its in the first fruits in honoring God, in obedience, in seeing truth. That can make this difference between God and a counterfeit.
FOR IF THE FIRST FRUIT BE HOLY, THE LUMP IS ALSO HOLY; AND IF THE ROOT BE HOLY SO ARE THE BRANCHES. ROMANS 11:16. KJV.
A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENETH THE WHOLE LUMP. GALATIANS 5:10 KJV.
Here leaven is referring to the wrong doctrine, and I would say because of these false bible versions.
But, this is what I am seeing with many Christians. Who are not choosing truth, but choosing the counterfeit.
They are choosing the counterfeit. They are choosing the lie. They go to battle for the lie. They go to battle for the false prophet. They go to battle, thinking, they are doing right, but what they are doing is so wrong in the sight of God. If only they had this much passion for the true Kingdom of God.
I have seen this with friends, with people I love. And as I try and even speak truth, I turn into the bad guy. According to them, I turn into the mean one. I turn into someone, who is coming against Gods anointed, for they remind me, “touch not my anointed.” (funny I taught this person this scripture and others) but anyway, I have seen it.
They forget to love. They forget not to return evil, for evil. They want to make me the outcast. Just because I uphold truth, and my King James bible… For thus saith the Lord!
I have actually shopped, with some of my friends, and we go into Christian book stores, and they choose the book, or cd, that the fake prophet has written, and they are so inspired. They love their ears tickled. But I did not say anything…
But they hate me now, because I don’t tickle ears any more. I never really did, tickle ears, but the fruit, has been compromised. Even with other lies. That came in, and it grieves me, because I could not stop it. But I am speaking up, because I am alarmed, at how they grasp these false messages. And embrace, and put up on a pedestal that false prophet. Even on their posts.
I might not even say anything, most times, I don’t, but every once in a while when something comes across my desk, I might say; Like wow, did you hear what that person said? And I present, what they said, not what I said, but the proof is in a video, or in their own words, yet they get mad. And they get mad at me.
Well truth be, I am called to speak truth. I am not famous, I haven’t gotten a book deal, and reached success, according to the worlds standards. So, if anybody listens to me, for truth, I pray they hear that. But I will not compromise truth, to please people, or tickle ears.
Because I don’t follow anybody, but Christ, and what my King James bible says. I don’t even admire anybody right now, because I haven’t truly found any leaders, that uphold the King James, or speak a strong salvation message. I just don’t.
Nope, what I see are these prosperity messengers, or these lying prophets, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote religion. (Rules, regulations, traditions made by men, and groups.) Or even with the women, they ride on their husbands coat tail. And I won’t attend their church, nor will I embrace them by promoting them. Let alone, following them.
Really…. oh well.
But it does grieve me, and if it grieves me, I know it has to grieve God, for the Christian, who does not see the truth in these false prophets. In the lying prosperity message, etc. It grieves God when the word, is twisted, and turned around by these fake bibles. It grieves God, because it defies Him, with no fear of God, or the consequences.
I fear God.
God sees, when the pastor, who denies, what KJV scripture, says, who might even have an agenda, to promote, division. Who does not tell everyone, or teach to bow, before Christ. That somehow or another, a group of people, is not a part of that. Yet the word says, there is no difference between the jew or gentile. That all will bow, and confess Jesus is Lord. These pastors who do these kind of things to sell books, or cds, well its obvious, they want to be front and center. Not Gods King James word.
And sadly, not God Himself. They defy that, whats wrong with you folks, who do that, are blinded.
I always look at each pastors, bible, reference. Is it King James, and usually its a counterfeit, they use.
I don’t have that agenda, to be front and center. I don’t. I want my Lord to be glorified, by truth, not by lies. I don’t want to hear, I never knew you. From Christ. Like I said, I fear God, and I know enough of my Bible, to see this. I am not a know-it-all. But what I do know, I will show for the glory of God, and only God.
I feel for my brothers and sisters, in Christ, who embrace these false prophets. Who cannot get true discernment, and become confused, because they even embrace fake word, with these false bible versions. I feel for them. Because they embrace the prosperity message.
But, I will continue to walk in truth, I will write truth, I will walk in love. And if I make enemies, oh well, God fights my battles, and I know it. And I don’t even have to see it, I know they will reap what they sow, because this is scriptural. Vengeance is HIS, and I can walk on, because I forgive. I will not allow that poison in my heart, and soul. We are temples of the living God, and it makes me wonder who is living in some of these temples? Its not God, for God is love…..
I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOU THROUGH THE LORD, THAT YE WILL BE NONE OTHERWISE MINDED: BUT HE THAT TROUBLETH YOU SHALL BEAR HIS JUDGMENT, WHOSOEVER HE BE. GALATIANS 5:10 KJV.
But I know the difference, and I will not follow anybody but Christ, through my King James bible.
My bible, speaks about truth, about who God is, what His commandments say. It speaks, about the salvation, we can have through Christ. It speaks, about warning, others, and maybe this is what I am trying to do, because even the “righteous” Christian, who thinks they are right. According to Ezekiel 33. Needs to be warned. (read it yourself)
I am warning here…. Because they think its judging someone, but its warning! Don’t confuse judging with warning, if you are seeking truth. Because you will get confused.
It warns us Christ tells us to get right with Him, keep our garments clean. (repent daily) Yet, some thinks bible is about the seed, and harvest, or about tithing, and they hold onto that, and let go of the truth. They embrace the counterfeit.
I will continue to see through false messages, who thinks its only grace that saves them and does not embrace the law, they will find out and be in for a rude awakening, when they stand before God, because God throughout His word, says, keep His commandments. Yet they throw the law out.
But the only way, I can continue to see through false messages is to be totally submitted to God. To obey Him. To give no place to the enemy. And this is is my goal. And I pray thats your goal, as well.
But the counterfeit lies, that are out their in full force, have hurt the body of Christ, and nobody, wants to take the side of truth. Oh well, I will walk the narrow road, by myself.
For the friends, I have lost, even recently, have taught me, and shown me, fruit, that was counterfeit. Not of love. Returning evil for evil. Woe unto them that call good evil. And evil good. Giving me the silent treatment, when I gave grace. Not truly forgiving… No all of these things, have shown me, more then ever. Truth.
But I will continue with Christ. With His truth, and with His love. That is not compromised. I feel for my brothers and sisters in Christ, I truly do. I see, how the world is lost, and those that could make a difference, do not, because they let the lump be compromised. I see, how it weakens our faith, I see how it can open the door to the enemy. But if I warn them I then become their enemy.
Its their choice, to not choose God, and His truth, and to choose the counterfeit. But He will judge. Let alone knowing, they reap what they sow. And if I could only get someone to see this, to repent, to choose wisely, then maybe my gift and calling, would bring glory to God. If I could pull them from hells fire. To keep their garment clean, and not with spot.
Because I serve, God and only God, and I submit to God, I renounce, and denounce the enemy, and want nothing to do with lies that create counterfeits.
As I close, please, remember this. Don’t overthrow Gods truth, and choose the counterfeit. Please don’t. You will regret it, maybe for eternity, if you don’t repent, and change. Please…..
AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHERE THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE, AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER. REVELATION 20:10 KJV.
Blessings, in Christ only,
And for such a time as this I write it. Why God has shown me this, is beyond me, but I do want to serve our Lord in truth. His truth. Not mans truth, not a publisher who purposely disobeys God in this. And certainly not in false prophets, who are to me, wolves in sheep’s clothing.
I don’t want nothing to do with that. And yes, the Lord has been showing me these things.
For a while now, I have tried with all my being, giving scripture, concerning the KJV word. That these Bible versions, that are out, and very much used, are, an abomination to God. Yes, an abomination. He does not accept them. Because they have disobeyed God by changing the word, and the word is not holy, but compromised.
I have told so many, this, as best as I can to my own ability, but I need the ability of God, so I press in with prayer, and the Holy word, in the King James, as Christ is the word. (see John 1 from the KJV to see His truth, as to being the word.) So I don’t just spin my wheels.
It just makes me think, He is holy. He did not compromise. Truth. He spoke it in love, and He was steadfast in that.
I want to be like that. I have been in a few spiritual battles lately, for this reason, but also because with the recent tragedies, I have seen “false prophets.” Those that claim they are serving God, yet they cannot serve their fellow person, unless they are publicly shamed. I have seen these false prophets, take scripture, twist it, change it, compromise it, for a prosperity message. That tickles others ears, but it is so far, from Gods truth, its obvious. There is no call, or warning to call those to repent. To tell them to seek Christ, because we are in end times. To ensure their salvation.
But obviously not to some, they think these messages are fine. For some think that their is an anointing in these messages. They think if it makes you feel good, it is good, and thereby there is no harm in it. They don’t see the contradictions because it does not line up with Gods holy word. Yet, the message eludes repentance, or a calling of those to beware, and to seek God for who He is, not what He can give. They turn God into an ATM. Its very deceptive, because it does tickle the ears. It grieves me. So if it grieves me it has to grieve God.
My thought is this, as it is also KJV scriptural, you know them by their fruit. Is the message, based on Gods holy, uncompromised Holy KJV word? Or is it a message, that tickles your ears? Is it a message, that does not cause you to search for God by also searching yourself, to see where one may fail? To repent to be humble? Is it a prosperity message? That totally disregards Gods truth, and commandments, His law. Gods ways are excellence. And He is not mocked. There was a reason, why Christ turned the tables in the temple. Do we forget what angers God?
One man, told me, I don’t care, if this prophet, is in the truth of the Bible, or if I even make it to heaven. I just want to have some hope in today. Wow, I thought.
For a while now, I have been trying to share this truth. About the deception in Bibles. Not to judge anybody, but because we are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the righteous. When I read that, from my King James. I am assuming the “righteous” is other Christians. And these brothers and sisters, who I try to warn, are not listening to what I say about exclusively only using the King James, but they are following false prophets. Who themselves use false word. They think its judging….
And I try to stop them, to bring it to their attention, not to judge them, but because I know what Gods word says in these matters, and I have discernment.
But it goes in one ear, and out the other. Either it is ignored, or they fight. And they fight with a vengeance, defending that which is wrong. They get so angry, if you bring it to their attention. They defend this unrighteousness, and they say you are judging. They dismiss, Gods holy word, that tells us, to beware of such prophets. Like Jeremiah 23:16.
THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, HEARKEN NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS THAT PROPHESY UNTO YOU: THEY MAKE YOU VAIN: THEY SPEAK A VISION OF THEIR OWN HEART, AND NOT OUT OF OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.
How specific does God have to get for us to get that? Do we have to see His wrath, before we open our eyes? Do we have to see our sins, separate ourselves from Him? Do we have to lose our blessings, our sense of discernment, because one would follow a prophet, who does that?
Oh how I grieved for that, man who told me that he did not even care if he made it to heaven! And I shared with him truth, but he did not even acknowledge me. I told him, get a King James bible.
I have told friends, who buy these books, and support these ministries, and read that crap, but they don’t listen. One friend, judged me, harshly, rudely, and insulted me, because I told her, I do not read these books, from someone who does not even obey God in this. This was concerning another false prophet.
Yet I walked in love. I had another friend, who totally ignored this but felt to even bring it up, one was a “backstabber” if they even said anything about a false prophet. Really? Because last time I checked, we are called to warn each other. We are called to mark those who cause division. And have nothing to do with them. We are called to test the spirits. To try them.
I had another friend, a gentleman, who told me I changed, I used to be so nice. And I thought, I still am nice. I just want you to have your blessings, I just want you to get answers to prayer. I just want you to please God. And have true discernment. I have noticed people would rather stop talking to you, and quit being your friend, if you even bring these matters up. About the KJV or false prophets.
Well oh well, I guess I am out of friends. Because I would rather please God, then deny His truth. But thats not true. I do have some faithful friends. Loyal friends. There are only a few that, that stand by me, support me, encourage me, and see my gift and calling. They share my writings, and they communicate. Communication is such a wonderful thing. Because we sharpen each other.
Anyway, concerning those who are not listening….
I have spoken these things, in love, and the love was not returned. I did not argue, fight, yet, I was ignored. And told to “agree, to disagree” was what was needed. Nor an apology was extended. Try telling God that when you ignore His word. Try telling God that when you need a miracle. Life is unpredictable, and if we are not doing our part, if we are not obedient to God, we are hypocrites, to say the least. How do we expect answers to prayer, if we do not obey Him, in just these matters?
If a pastor cannot obey God, even in the word he uses, or she, as a public speaker, why would I want that false anointing on me? Its part truth, and part lie! Where is the message for repentance, humbleness? These false prophets, promote pride.
But if you tell another brother or sister in Christ this, who thinks they are “righteous” (again like Ezekiel 33 says) They get very angry. They fight you. My thought is this, I do not want to be defending, or agreeing with someone that disobeys God in these matters. I don’t want to be on the wrong side. I would rather walk alone, then to be in the company of someone who insists these false bibles, and false prophets are correct.
Like the saying goes, “you can lead them to water, but you cannot make them drink it.” And I won’t hit someone on the head, with my King James bible, if they want to follow the blind. Like scripture says, the blind, will lead the blind, and they know not where they go. You might want to look it up from a KJV.
So this morning, because I know this is on Gods heart, He showed me the following scriptures:
WHY THEN IS THIS PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM SLIDDEN BACK BY PERPETUAL BACKSLIDING? THEY HOLD FAST DECEIT, THEY REFUSE TO RETURN. I HEARKENED AND HEARD, THEY SPAKE NOT ARIGHT: NO MAN REPENTED HIM OF HIS WICKEDNESS, SAYING WHAT HAVE I DONE? EVERY ONE TURNED TO HIS COURSE, AS THE HORSE RUSHETH INTO THE BATTLE. YEA, THE STORK IN THE HEAVEN KNOWETH HER APPOINTED TIMES; AND THE SWALLOW OBSERVE THE TIME OF THEIR COMING; BUT MY PEOPLE KNOW NOT THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD. JEREMIAH 8:5-7. KJV.
Wow…His people do not know the judgment of the Lord. They refuse to return. From this, which God sees as backsliding. This is what I see, when my friends, or people ignore the warnings I give about false word, or false prophets. They do not repent, nor do they even acknowledge, the truth in these matters. They will not apologize, or even be accountable that they are not seeing it clearly. They would rather turn on the silent treatment. Well I can be silent too.
That scares me. In the fear of God. Not in judging, but in warning them.
I have another friend, who I love dearly. And we are having a discussion about not giving, and giving. Why? Because I don’t like being off balance. When I cannot give in return. Some people can do it free and easy. And some do not have the resources. I believe gifts, should be given in careful consideration, not just to give. I don’t like the feeling of just taking, but not being able to give equally. I don’t want to use anybody, nor do I want to feel used. I think thats a horrible feeling. But I also feel, that a gift is a spiritual connection, and if someone does not appreciate a gift, for example, and even re-gifts it, thats just sad. Especially if someone sees you playing with their heart, and you make excuses instead of being accountable.
Anyway, I don’t know why I feel this way, maybe this is why I serve God, with all I can, because I know I cannot repay Him, for who He is, and what He did on that cross. For me personally. His life was a gift. I don’t want God to feel like I am using Him.
And these false messages, that take part truth do remind me of that, with the prosperity message, like it promotes only using God, and that is so wrong. To me it is.
But I try and serve Him, so He knows, I am thankful. I serve Him, in HIS KJV truth, so He knows I am trying to obey Him. His gift of life is too precious to let it be only about the prosperity message, or to think even His grace is sufficient, when I know, I could make a difference.
But I will try, I will try with all my being. I will try to repay Him. I will try to stand in His truth. I will try…..
To give Love. I will try to obey, and warn others. I will try to serve Him, and never be ashamed to be called a Christian. I just want to be strong in His truth, and nothing else. I want to be aware of the enemies antics, and avoid the lies. The deception. I want nothing to do with it. I don’t want anything that separates me from God.
But there is something in my heart, that wants to at least, keep His KJV word, in love and obedience.
I just see the difference, between false word, and false prophets, and if I can spare someone, and at least give them that, to know truth, then maybe, just maybe, my life, will bring glory to God. And maybe just maybe, they can repent, return to God, and see the difference themselves, from false word, and false prophets. So they can avoid the deception.
Bottom line, if they do not use a KJV they are a false prophet to me. Sorry if this offends anybody, but thats the way I see it. I won’t argue about it, or try to convince anybody.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I know it is a little longer then most of my “Just my Thoughts.” Feel free to share this, if you agree with my thoughts. If not, oh well.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
I feel like I am in fifth grade, and I have been given the assignment to explain this:
Do you want God to bless you, but you do not bless God?
I have to explain it. Its on my heart. It makes me sad for God. I actually feel the emotion, and the tears, when I think about it.
Why me to explain it? I don’t know…. but it does make me think, it makes me want to bless God.
I guess, because I am older now. I guess, because I see the error of my ways, in this lifetime of mine. I see, the wrong turns I took. I see the sin in my life. I see, the lack of love, I had in my life time. I see the lack of guidance I had. The loneliness, the self-esteem issues I have had. I see, I reaped what I sowed, so to speak according to scripture. I see, the gifts and callings I had, like singing, or even my writing….. And I just see, and I have said this before, I see, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train…
But what if? What if I had the seed planted in me, at an early age, to bless God? Not just wanting God to bless me, and lets be totally honest, because we want God to bless us, but if I had the desire to bless Him. Would my life been different? I don’t know. But I think it would have.
If I ever get grand babies, and I pray I do, I hope I can teach them to bless God.
But I can only concentrate on this moment. Oh if only, I could plant the seed in you, to plant that seed in others. So it would grow fruit, and other seeds. Perhaps that would bless them. But it would bless God.
I say that, because I see the world we live in. I see brothers and sisters in Christ, who are my brethren, but we do not all agree. I see, so many deceived, by using the per-version, of different bibles, in the versions they choose, that are not King James Bibles. That are perverted.
I see the Prosperity messengers, screaming, “holler for a dollar, and name it and claim it.” But they do not teach first and foremost the salvation message, to get people to see who God is. To fear God. To repent even daily, after Salvation. To make it right with Him, to see Christ as Lord and savior, before they even dare to ask for anything from God.
I see the lost. I see the atheists. I see people hating, and doing deplorable things. I see the fruit, that is rotten.
I see things, even in my beautiful America, that are no longer, sacred, holy, or even considered history. There is hate, among people, races. Authority is not respected. Or honored. Freedom of speech has turned into hate speech. Life is not honored, and the innocent, babies, that are slaughtered, daily, in the name of choice.
Yes, I see things, but I know God sees everything. And how that must grieve Him. It has to. These things we see, cannot bless God!
And there is no one, calling out to bless God. Or at least I don’t hear it. Maybe you do. Do you? I hope so. I hope, whatever church or religion, you have, has that motto to bless God.
And I don’t like the word religion when it applies to me, because religion is, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups. And I don’t have “a religion”, I believe I have a relationship with my maker.
My maker. My creator. The Lord God, who is worthy of all praise, glory and honor, for who He is. For all that He has done. For His mercy, goodness, kindness, and love. This being, who gave us this earth. And gives us life. Good food, and every perfect thing.
Think about it. Our lives are meant to glorify Him. We are created in His image. He gives us a soul. A mind, a heart, to choose him, or not. He is a gentleman. He never imposes His thoughts on us. He gives us a choice.
Who has throughout time, been there, yes silent many times, but my King James Bible has showed me, that He has had relationships with many.
Beginning with Adam and Eve. They had no fear of God, or she and he would not have believed the lie from the devil. And eaten the fruit. I always say this, but if only they had gone to God, again…. and asked Him. God would not have lied. He would have reaffirmed His truth. He would have told them, the devil is a liar. Believe me, and only me. But they did not ask, and they disobeyed.
And we all somehow or another, reaped that sin, of them, and it is the same thing today. We do what we want, and we do not ask God. How sad. But we can ask Him…. if our motives are right. If we think before we ask, whats my part in this? Will this bless God, if I go to Him in prayer first? Before I do anything.
No wonder God tells us He lifts the humble and turns from the proud.
I think its sad, because I know God would want to do more for us, if we had only tried to obey Him. Our world, would be different, if sin, had not entered in the picture.
But its not too late, or at least, I see that for me, any way. I can try and live my life, obedient, to Him. Whats left of it….To give Him glory and honor. I don’t want to leave this earth with that as a question. Is my salvation in tact? And how to bless God?
To think about blessing Him, before I even think about asking Him to bless me. I mean after all, He has done for me in my lifetime, is that too much to ask? Bless God….
Friends, I truly hope you take this to heart. I could write a book on it. As I could on so many things God has placed on my heart. But at this point in my life, I think I just need to focus on blessing Him, and in little things. A little photo, that I share, a little inspiration, that I call “just my thoughts”...a little prayer for somebody, and just a little chat, as I come to His throne….to tell Him thank you Father. But always acknowledging Him. Never ashamed. How can any of us be ashamed, when He does so much for us?
Thankful for the miracles. That I can say look what God has done for me. Every thing He has provided…..
The enemy has blinded so many of us. Even in our silence….where people do not say anything, even with courage, to acknowledge God. Cowardly, they do not stand for right. They have no David in them I think…. To go after the Goliath.
And then….Again with Bibles that are not holy. Where words are distorted, corrupted, no longer holy. Where the majesty of God is undermined, in these phony words. And, in stealing that praise that God so deserves. By even denying His existence. By changing His Holy word. How insulting. And even worse, you know this truth, but you do nothing.
But let me tell you a little about the God I know. Though He is love….He is not mocked. And He keeps His Holy word. That I call KJV word. I know His ways are excellence. I know prophetic words will come true. Christ will return. Christ will come for His own. And the world, will reap what it sows. The devil, and all his “accusers” will be sent to hell, and hell is a tormenting place. The wrath of God will be known. And many will regret their denial of Him. Because He cannot be denied.
If I could plead with you, I would tell you even in this analogy. Repent. Get right with God quick! Use a King James Bible. Throw those corrupted bibles away. Part truth, part lie.
Because we never know. Throw away pride. Get hungry and thirsty for righteousness. Acknowledge God, in all your ways, and He will direct your paths. Be obedient, not only for your sake, but your family, your loved ones, but more for Him.
That would bless God. That would give the devil a black eye.
Develop your relationship with Him…..
Its so sweet to know Him. Jesus, is the perfect example of love. And I pray, never to take for granted what He did for me on that cross. His suffering, pain, agony, and by His stripes we are healed. That means spiritually and physically.
I could never ever, repay Him for that. I could not. I know who I am, and I know how weak I have been. In so many ways…. it makes me sad. I did not bless God growing up… but I am so grateful at this moment.
That I just want to thank Him for everything. I just want to bless God. I am not super Christian, I am not trying to puff myself up. By even writing this.
But, I will say this….You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am, or what I have gone through. That even brings me this to write this. How dare anybody mock someones faith? With or with out knowing.
But He does know, and it so humbles me, that pride that characteristic of self is evil. Its comes from the enemy. And it has shown me the danger, that I know that is a characteristic of the enemy.
I want nothing to do with the enemy. I renounce him, even as I write…..
But I love Jesus, and I thank my God the father, by the Holy spirit….
I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.
But I want to bless God. I hope you do too.
Much love, Elena Ramirez
