WHEN THE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT CHOOSE GOD WITH DISCERNMENT BUT CHOOSES THE COUNTERFEIT ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez


PB030096.jpgI 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,

MAY THE “WILL” OF THE LORD BE MAGNIFIED IN 2018 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2May the “will” of the Lord be magnified in 2018.  

Speaking, and concentrating on that, gives me such hope.  Because more then ever, I am seeing who God is.  I am seeing His ways.  I am seeing my mistakes, that led to sin.  And what I have reaped….I am seeing How great Christ is, I am seeing His thoughts…..manifested.  

It is a release, so to speak of my faith.  To speak His will be done.  

You know, we all have desires of the heart, hopes, dreams, and even visions.  But if we leave God out of the equation, well like the saying goes, in scripture.  “unless the Lord, builds the house, we labor in vain.”

I am tired of laboring in vain.  To be honest.  I am tired of having poor, or bad judgment, where I made mistakes, or where, even things were not fulfilled in my life.  I am tired, of wanting something, and maybe even saying, it in the name of the Lord, but it did not come to pass.  Praying for something, but praying amiss.  And I think not praying for Gods will to be done, is praying amiss.  

YE ASK, AND RECEIVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ASK AMISS, THAT YE MAY CONSUME IT UPON YOUR LUSTS.  JAMES 4:3  KJV.  

Just saying, even here, but the prosperity message, is asking God amiss….He is not an ATM!

I want to touch base on this slightly, so maybe you can be encouraged as well, you see, I know this is my gift and calling, to speak truth, and inspire you.  Whether it be one person, a thousand, or even 100 billion people.  I want to be used by God, but I have learned….  

His will be done!

I never want to put a limit on God.  But I probably have, even in my own small thinking.  I want to get past that.  I want to grow.  I want you to grow.  There should never be a limit we put on God, because of who He is.  The earth, is the Lords, and the fullness thereof.  

But I truly believe, He wants us to seek Him for who He is, not what He can give.  He wants us to know what pleases Him.  What His power can do, but He has requirements, He has ways of excellence, that must truly grieve Him, when we misinterpret who He is.  Or even deny Him.  To me its very sad, to not see or know Him.  His presence, is the present, if you get my drift.  But His spirit, is Holy.    And He wants that for us too.  So we have our part to seek that.  To obey, to love Him, in obedience.  

His will be done, His righteousness, and Kingdom be magnified.  As I seek Him, all things will be added.  He says, all things are possible with Him.  All things.  

But there are principles, ways, commandments from God that must be fulfilled.  Laws…..

Laws that should be kept in the name of the Lord, and actually in fear of God, but sadly, many do not keep Gods laws.  Or wants, and ways, in the name of the Lord, through Christ.  

I took a break from social media, recently, during the holidays, to refresh myself, to fill myself, up, in the Lord.  I felt empty, poured out.  I felt like I was running on fumes, but before I did, I had a very interesting conversation, with a so called sister in the Lord.  

She was very adamant about promoting the “prosperity message.”   And her thoughts, disturbed me, that she felt the way she did.  Basically she said, that the Old Testament, was just a history lesson, and that anything she did, was covered by the blood of Jesus, and to be explicit, the way she communicated, she expressed, she basically believed, she had a “license” to sin.  WRONG!

Many Christians, have been taught, that we are saved by grace.  Which is true.  But many have the thought, and are taught by the blind, that the laws, from the Old Testament, do not apply, because of the new covenant in Christ, which is the New Testament.  So they do not think of the “laws” they do not try and keep the laws, that Moses gave, from God.  

Now, I am not going to get into a theological debate, with anybody, or argue and debate it, because there are some things, that may not apply.  But when you are talking about Gods’s commandments, and what to keep and not to keep, well I warn here, tread carefully!  Very carefully!  

Scripture says, we are only free from the law of sin, and death.  It does not say anything about Gods commandments.  

FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  ROMANS 8:2.  KJV.  

Christ who fulfills the law, became the sacrifice.  That is holy.  A big difference.  Compared to what is sacrificed   Please read Matthew 5, from a King James bible, to see, what Jesus says about the law.  

As I discussed this with this “wicked” woman, I realized, how lost she was.  I realized, how important Gods commandments are.  But I also realized how strong her convictions were, and because she was misled, she could mislead others.  She was trying to mislead me, and there was no way, I was going to drink that kook-aid.   That was very deceptive.  And one key factor, was she did not walk in love.  Her thoughts were judgmental, and very mean spirited.  Christ said, we would be known by the Love, and her fruit did not reveal that.  So I rejected her thoughts.  

And the first thought I had as I discussed this with her, did she think God flip flopped, from the Old Testament, and changed His mind?

His word, says He changes not!  He did not change His mind, from the Old Testament, to the New Testament.  He sent Christ to fulfill the law.  

MALACHI 3:6  FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT.  THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED.  

This is what Christ said according to my King James bible, on the matter about the law:  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF THE PROPHETS;  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFILL.  FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL BREAK ONE OF THESE LEAST COMMANDMENTS, AND SHALL TEACH MEN SO, HE SHALL BE CALLED THE LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL DO AND TEACH THEM, THE SAME SHALL BE CALLED GREAT IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 5:17-19.  KJV.

She was trying to teach me not to keep the law of God, and I knew better.  So I could be prosperous.  You know what makes me prosperous?  Releasing myself to the “will” of the Lord, that can never go wrong.  Never.  

Please know better in this matter.  Do not be deceived by the blind, by wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote the “prosperity message.”  Keep Gods laws!  

And the first one, I would recommend, is repent.  Even if you do not think you have done wrong or even sinned.  Thats pride. And confess Christ as your Lord and savior.  Release yourself, in faith, to trust Him, so the will of God can be magnified in your own life, so you can be happy.

And yes, start using a King James bible, so you will be obedient to God in this matter, and the words you claim are holy, not corrupted because of disobedience.  So you can have holy vision.  True vision.

WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH:  BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  Proverbs 29:18.  KJV.

See for me, in the walk I have with the Lord, which is a narrow walk, a straight walk, in finding and searching for truth.  I realize more then ever, to seek the Kingdom of God, in His righteousness, but to release myself, to keep His laws, and to know His will be done.  

No matter what.  No matter if its yes or no. I just have to settle that in my heart, and soul, mind, and being.  

His will be done. So when you pray, remember to pray, His will be done.  His will…..

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, WHEN YE PRAY, SAY OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.  THY KINGDOM COME.  THY WILL BE DONE, AS IN HEAVEN SO IN EARTH.  Luke 11:2.  KJV.

Don’t forget what Christ taught us.  That whatever we bind on earth will be bound, and whatever we loose will be loosed in heaven and earth.  

My desire more then ever.  In my words, in my spirit, in my fear of God.  It is to release His will to be done, in my life, in my family, in my health, in my finances, in what I do for Him, in even my friends.  Who He gives me, or takes from me.  

Being a friend to me in Christ is so important, but I have learned, He brings and takes people away from me.  And I accept that as His will.  

But I will honor His will to be done.  Whether someone agrees with me or not.  Now in 2018, and always.  

And anyone who does not have fear of God in this, is really misled.  Keep Gods laws friends.  So you can be happy.  

Happy New year, of 2018.

WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE DECEIVED BY FALSE WORD AND FALSE PROPHETS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3266.jpgAnd 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

 

 

DO YOU WANT GOD TO BLESS YOU BUT YOU DO NOT BLESS GOD? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


DSC_0015I 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…..

You know…. 

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.  

BLESS GOD!

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

DO NOT LET PEOPLE INTIMIDATE YOU GOD WILL DEAL WITH THEM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 3I feel led to write to someone, to comfort them, to warn them, to encourage them.   Do not let people intimidate you.  God will deal with them.  God is not a respecter of persons, He loves us all.  But God will protect you, from unjust harm.  Trust Him.  

For, there are many King James scriptures that tell us about our enemies.  And there are many scriptures that tells us what happens to the wicked:

That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Genesis 22:17  KJV.  

But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.  Exodus 23:22.  KJV  

The Lord preserveth all them that love him:  but all the wicked will he destroy.  Psalms 145:20  KJV.

But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of the lambs:  they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.  

Psalm 37:20  KJV.

I am a warrior.  I learned to be that way, because of the own people I dealt with growing up.  I did not have  brothers or sisters.  To protect me.  But I had to fight.  

I fought….In the business world, and even here on social media.  And there are people, who only want to intimidate you, fight you, argue with you, and try to make you feel uncomfortable, or sad.  

Thats their agenda.  I stay clear from those kind of people.  I won’t sit with the scorner.  I won’t even try to let them think I agree with them, when I don’t.  If someone cusses at me, they lose me, in even trying to communicate.  I won’t go to that level.  

Whether its in politics, or in religion, or in the work place. Or even your neighborhood.   The jealousy, prejudice, or pure ignorance, the rudeness, that blinds them, will try and intimidate you.

There are people, no matter how hard you try to get a long with them.  Their venom will come out.  

And I do recommend trying to get along with people.  In fact pray for them.  Walk in love anyway, as Christ commanded us.    

But it seems, no matter what you try to do, they will fight you, argue with you, or try to intimidate you.  

Don’t let that spirit cripple you.  This is a trap from the enemy.  To believe a lie, or to stop you from being fulfilled in the promises of God.  Trust God. 

Maintain your courage, and just know, God is on your side.  Just know, there are angels that are dispatched, for you.  Trust God.  Let this thing that the enemy is trying to use against you, make you stronger.  

Its sad, because I personally have seen people, use something about a person, even personally to make them feel uncomfortable. As if they were superior.  And they will try to manipulate you to think you are not worthy.  

And I guess, even in writing this.  Because I know.  Whatever it is you may have, as a handicap, or as something that makes you feel inferior.  Even your race.  Which should not even be a factor, but because racism and hate is prevalent, they will try and make you feel inferior.  

God can use that, and teach you, how to be stronger, even for someone else.  You can get courage.  You can speak truth.  You can be someone who can rise above it.  

Yes, there are some battles that are not meant for us to fight.  And you need to ask God for wisdom.  

And I myself, pray every day for wisdom in such matters.  Because I have as a fighter been involved in things that I should not.  

But, yet, there is something in me that rises up against evil.  Or against, an injustice to someone else.  Or to an accuser, who is so hateful.  That you tell them.  Knock it off.  And you tell them about their own indiscretions, since they want to make you feel unworthy.  Especially here on social media.  

Where people, will say things, do things, that they would not in public.  But something about being behind a computer, they get courage, to be rude and mean, and try to intimidate you.  Don’t let them.  If you know truth, stand… be still, and Know He is God.  

Look, in life, we will meet the good, the bad, and the ugly.  But don’t be a part of the ugly, or the bad, because you yourself, have been hurt, or intimidated  by someone else.  

Turn it around, whatever wound you have.   Whatever that makes you inferior.  Whatever it is that may have  broken you even in your heart, and life.  And just give it to God.  

God will fight your enemies for you.  I have seen this in my own life.  I have seen God deal with people who have hurt me, and He has punished them.  See they have no idea, especially if you are a Christian, what God will do with them.  But they will reap what they sow.  They have no idea who God is.  

And its sad, because if we all would just see, how frail we are.  If we could just see that their is an enemy.  We would humble ourselves, and bow down, and give God glory, because there is nothing impossible with God.  We would all be kinder, to each other, we would walk in love.  

If all of us would just even apologize, for being sometimes being rude, or insensitive.  We might soothe the beast.  A soft word, turns away anger….

Because we are all capable of that.  See we never know what someone else is going through.  And when people are mean, or cruel, and they have burdens, sadness, God sees.  And it grieves Him, when they are trying to intimidate His child.  He will have His vengeance.  But maybe he is trying for you to see why that person is mean.  Pray for them. 

I just pray, for whoever is reading this, that is feeling intimidated.  Pray, give your whole being to God.  Repent, yourself for even your part in it, if there is…..because maybe you are reaping, what you sowed.  Now you are getting the tail end of it.  

But, stay humble in the sight of God.  Do whats right.  Do not take matters, in your hand that would cause you to lose your right standing with God.  Let God deal with them.  But don’t let them intimidate you.  Just know who you are in Christ.  You are victorious.  You are Gods child, precious, and beautiful in His sight, and He loves you.  That should be enough right now to comfort you, and to pray…..  

Don’t forget to use a King James Bible to search for your scriptures.  For holiness, and anointing, that the others do not give.  

Please share this post, maybe you will help someone who needs to see this.  And may God bless you for doing that.  

This is His promise from the King James:  

And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.  Jeremiah 15:21  KJV.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez 

I REFUSE AND REJECT MODERN DAY CHRISTIANITY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


 

DSC_0085.jpgHMMM, before I go on further, I need to clarify what I mean by that.  I want it to be totally understood, I do not reject Christ.  I do not reject, what He did on that cross for me.  I do not reject the thoughts, God has for me.  By His plan of salvation.  I embrace it with my whole heart, and His truth.  I submit to God, and even here, deny the devil.  And resist him.  I am so very grateful for my salvation.  By what Christ did.  I will never reject or refuse Christ.  I know….I was lost, but now I am found.  

But….What do I mean by that statement?  That I refuse and reject modern day Christianity?  

Well, let me just say, this old girl, has been around the block a few times.  The church block.  And I love my brothers and sisters in Christ, so let me make that clear.  

But, I see, many, rejecting the old ways, and embracing things, that totally distort, and compromise, truth, and what Christ did for us on the cross.  

Starting with the “prosperity message” that names it and claims it.  Plant a seed, and fill your need.  Its all so wrong, in the sight of God.  I do not, as a ministry, even dare to ask anyone for a donation, because I never want to distort, or confuse anyone, about who I am in Christ. So, I do not peddle, or hustle the word of God, for money.  

Then…. there are all these modern day bibles, that totally corrupt, and compromise Gods words, and truth, and they are not the same definition, by any means.  

You don’t think the devil, is happy, and thrilled, that Christians, are not embracing the “Old” words?  Think again.  There is no power, or anointing in these words, not after God, said, over, and over again, do not change, add, delete, His words.  

They are rubber swords.  If you read my writings, you know how I feel about that.  

Yesterday, I thought, I am going to listen to Christian music.  And I turned on my radio, and a radio station, that is nation wide, announced:

“Theres a map, that can tell you how long you can live!  We will tell you more stay tuned to….. “

And I just shook my head.  And I wrote them a little message, telling them the same thing, as this….What are they into fortune telling now?  Do they not see, and know how God feels about such matters?  

But there it was announced, for the whole world to hear it.  And I thought, there are some baby Christians, who think this radio station, is an authority in such matters of God, yet they are promoting it so to speak…. Gods wrath is on such matters.  He hates, entities, that promote other spiritual seeking.  

This is an abomination to God, but it is a deception, the enemy uses, because “modern” day Christians, have no fear of God, nor do they understand truth, because these pastors, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, have gone into our churches, and taught a bunch of baloney.  That tickle peoples ears, and sugar coat truth, and are a deception.  

But I will tell you, and warn you.  To open your own eyes.  To be aware, of the enemies antics. I will tell you what God says, and that we are to be careful to choose the old ways….

THEY HAVE CORRUPTED THEMSELVES, THEIR SPOT IS NOT THE SPOT OF HIS CHILDREN, THEY ARE A PERVERSE AND CROOKED GENERATION.  DO YE THUS REQUITE THE LORD, O FOOLISH PEOPLE, AND UNWISE?  IS NOT HE THY FATHER THAT HATH BOUGHT THEE?  HATH HE NOT MADE THEE, AND ESTABLISHED THEE?  REMEMBER THE DAYS OF OLD, CONSIDER THE YEARS OF MANY GENERATIONS; ASK THY FATHER, AND HE WILL SHOW THEE, THY ELDERS AND THEY WILL TELL THEE.  DEUTERONOMY 32:5-7.  KJV.  

See above how it says, He bought thee?  Thats talking about what Christ did for us.  He paid, the penalty for our sins.  He did not die on the cross, so we could have an excuse to sin.  Grace does not cover that!  Another stinking thinking thought, that so many have embraced as truth, from these modern teachings.  But they think they can reject the law.  We need the law! 

IT IS TIME FOR THEE, LORD, TO WORK:  FOR THEY HAVE MADE VOID THY LAW.  PSALMS 119:126.  KJV.  

There are so many scriptures that talk about the law, but the teachings of Paul, by some Christians have distorted that.  In the modern church.  The only law we are free from is, the law of sin, and death.  Look it up yourselves.  But Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.  Look that up as well, in your own King James Bible.  

There is no fear of God, though, in these matters.  Ask yourself, when was the last time, you heard a teaching on the fear of God, that is throughout my bible?

See this, and other examples, of undermining the sovereignty of Christ, just turns me off about the modern church.  I could go on.  I warn you, but I won’t hit you on the head like some of these fanatics do.  Yes, I stand for truth.  But I cannot make you see this.  Unless you want to look.  

And many are content, to just choose a path, that is not the old way.  Even though God warns us.  He tells us, but so many are deceived, and blind…..  That they refuse. 

This concerns me for my brothers and sisters.  This concerns me, for the future of our children, and generations to come.  If Christ does not return soon.  Right now, the body of Christ is sick.  They are crippled, and do not stand right in the sight of God, with all the crap, they embrace.  I hate to say that.  But the truth is not coming out, and there are no leaders who I even look up to, in the body of Christ.  

I learned to follow Christ, not a leader.  Because especially what I see, is so distorted, and corrupted  by so many.  

My rule of thumb, in searching for a church.  Is love there?  Is a King Bible used?  Are all nations, and people represented in the church…. Is the old ways, taught?  Does your pastor, warn you, to repent, even daily?  Once does not cover it folks, if you go back to your old ways of sin.  Grace again, won’t be there, unless we are humble, in fear of God, repentant.  This is what cleans the slate.  But these modern day pastors, do not embrace that.  Its more like if it feels good, then do it.  NO!

Just a thought today…. but may this word remind us all.

THUS SAITH THE LORD, STAND YE IN THE WAYS, AND SEE, AND ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, WHERE IS THE GOOD WAY, AND WALK THEREIN, AND YE SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS, BUT THEY SAID, WE WILL NOT WALK THEREIN.  JEREMIAH 6:16.  KJV.

This says so much about the modern day church, and Christianity.  I cannot sit in a church, that does not embrace these things….even though I long to be a part of a church,  and I so miss worship and praise.  I cannot compromise myself to the rest of the program, when these things are missing.  I cannot.  

Well, I refuse, and reject modern day Christianity.  In fear of God.  Because I will stand before him someday…..

To each their own, is what I say, I won’t hit you on the head with my bible.  Like I said….But I will proclaim this. For the glory of God.  Modern day Christianity has lost its way.  After all Christ did for us, as the way, the truth, and life.  Its lost. 

In Christ, Elena Ramirez 

 

 

HOW TO FIGHT THE SPIRIT OF SUICIDE AND GIVING UP IN GENERAL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3955.jpgI write this from a place of sickness.  A place, where I have the flu, or whatever it is, and it is trying to take my hope away, my trust in God, and where I feel so out of it, that I could just give up.  But God…  It seems, He draws out my gift, even at the worst of times….

As I try to rest, in the day, I am in a spiritual battle.  My dreams, and my spirit is restless, and I hear the devil, telling me to give up.  And I say no….

But God….

But God reminds me, to always fight a good fight of faith.  I am a warrior.  I have fought all my life to survive.  And I am older now, and I have not met success, in certain ways.  

Yes, my life is fruitful, because of my walk with Christ, He saved me.  He pulled me out of the miry clay.  Yes, my life is successful, because I do have a wonderful husband and son, who love me very much.  And the devil, has tried to take that away from me many times, but God, protected me, when it came to temptation.  Or just giving up, on my marriage.  When there was trouble.  

I used to fight and flee.  Because I grew up fighting alone.  But I learned to fight, and have faith.  And no, I have not met goals even in my writing.  I am so limited, but God is not.  In who sees my writings.  

But thats o.k. I will fight the good fight of faith, and continue on.  I will share what the Lord puts on my heart.  I will fight.  Life, is precious.  

But our society, does not protect life.  We do not promote it, or there would not be abortion clinics, throughout our nation.  

Irony of just who I am, my mother, was not able to have children.  She did not want me.  She did not want children.  She actually took medical, advancements, to tie her tubes, and it failed.  I was conceived.  But she did not abort me.  She did not stop the plan of God for me and my life.  I was born.  My father prayed for me.  I am an answer to prayer.  

So, I appreciate life, I appreciate the life God has given me.  Especially, after I accepted Christ as my Lord and savior.  I cleaned up.  Quick!  I repented, I saw how close I was to death, and even hell.

I will not take the cowardly way out, by ending my own life, even when things have been terrible.  And they have been, throughout my life.  I have missed the boat, the plane, and the train, in a lot of things.  Yes, I have regrets.  But I will not give up…

Recently, we have heard in the news of two people, who have given up on life.  They were people in the news.  By their accomplishments, by their gifts and callings.  But they took a wrong turn now.  By suicide.   I won’t name them.  My goodness, they need closure.  For their family.  And then there was a friend in the family, to my son.  He was a young man, and he took his life.  

Why?  

Why do people give up?  Why do they stop caring.  Yes, life is hard sometimes, but don’t ever give up.  That is a spirit of suicide, that goes totally against who we can be in Christ.  And that comes right from hell, not God.  

You have to know who Christ is, and you have to know who the devil is.  And the devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Read John Chapter 10 from a King James bible.  

Christ, said, He came to give life, and that we “might” have it abundantly.  Might?  Hmm, what does that mean, when you are trying to sort out life, its situations, your hope, your faith, and you are trying, to figure out what to do?

It does not mean taking your own life, or giving up.  I guess, I just come from a place of faith, because thats who I am.  Because I have not always had the success, to say, my life is a success.  Or that I have lived abundantly.  I have not always.  But I dream about it.  I hope for it, and I won’t let go of God, or of my hopes, in having that life abundantly.

Some might say, because I am in my 60’s thats it, well I say, the devil is a liar.  

And I know it.  You see, “But God”….. has stepped in so many times, when I was at the bottom of the barrel, and saved me.  Yes suicide, and giving up, are options, but not if I embrace who I am in Christ.  And thats the whole point here.  

I submit to God.   I resist the devil, and he must flee.  I do it even here, in my writing…. I submit to God, and God can fight the battle in my sickness, in my healing, in my relationships, or in my life, in general.  I won’t give up.

I won’t!

I hold on, even now, and I write, and I let this out of my spirit, to proclaim it.  Because there are people, who do not know God.  They do not know how to believe in God, they don’t know, that there is always a chance, even if it looks like you are not promised tomorrow.  

I have seen as you have, many get a bad doctors report, and they believe, thats it.  Thats the end of it, just give up, take your own life, at your own pace, and they end it.  Thats so wrong. 

Look, my God is not an ATM.  I am not going to give you a bunch of bull, and try to twist your mind, or your spirit, by telling you, just have faith. 

You cannot have faith, if you do not know who God is.  Thats the bottom line.  You have to learn who He is.  You have to know, that He is not mocked.  You have to learn, and know, that He has His commandments, His ways, and we are to follow them.  Not religion.  Not some mans, rules, regulations, and traditions, that he established in a group, and calls it religion, or even Christianity.  

When I see, the distortion of Gods holy word, by so many, by pastors, by churches, it makes me righteously angry.  And I get that because, I know, the truth, the truth, that truly has set me free.  When I see corrupt Bibles, that are part truth, and part lie, yes I get righteously, angry.  

But yet, I don’t push my faith on anybody any more. Oh yes, I did, I would be a liar, if I did not admit that.  But…. I don’t try that hard any more.  I don’t give up.  But I don’t try to force faith, or force belief in God.  Thats His job, not mine.  

But I won’t give up.  Even if He does not answer my prayers.  Even if He leaves me like I am right now.  I won’t….

I will, write, and write, about His goodness, about what pleases Him, because I know Him.  I know Him personally.  

I don’t have a religion, I have a relationship with Him.  And it began, the moment, I saw what He did on that cross for me.  That He took those beatings, that He was nailed to the cross, and endured the pain for me.  The mocking.  The sorrow.  He took it, so I could write this, even now to you.

Don’t give up on life!  Don’t give in to the spirit of suicide, or even giving up for that matter.  After He died, He went straight to hell, to get those keys from the devil, so the devil, would not have that legal right, to make you give up.  Or to steal your soul.  But you have to start even where you are right now….

You know how you begin?

By His holy King James word.  By throwing away that pride, that stupid pride, that wants to deny there is no God.  By admitting, you are a sinner.  By repenting, for even giving up, on God, and on life.  Because there can be a tomorrow.  He can heal you.  Just by what He did on that cross.  He can heal you physically, and spiritually.  

But you have to humble yourself in His sight.  And yes, repent, daily, because we can sin daily.  Many don’t like to believe this, but if you backslide, you can lose salvation, because you gave into sin.  Do we not know, sin, separates us from God?  This is King James scriptural.  He says, He will blot out our names.  Look it up…

READ THESE SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.

BUT HE GIVETH MORE GRACE.  WHEREFORE HE SAITH, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE.  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.  BE AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP, LET YOUR LAUGHTER BE TURNED TO MOURNING, AND YOUR JOY TO HEAVINESS.  HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP.  JAMES 4:6-10.  KJV.  

You cannot resist the devil, without submitting to God first, dear ones.  

And the devil is the one, that is telling you to give up, give up on life, give up on your dreams, give up on your health.  He is saying give up.  He is telling you that with a spirit of suicide for whatever it is….

Don’t you dare.  I raise up my sword of truth, to tell him, even now, he is a liar, and must depart, yes, I feel sick.  Yes, I hurt, yes, I am sad, but I will never give up on God.  I write this with tears, because I know what its like to give up.  Yet, I gather myself up, even if I have to crawl on my knees.  And I do…

And just this week, again, we saw souls, give up.  And it grieves me.  Because there is always a chance with God.  If only they had submitted to God, resisted the enemy, that spirit, of suicide, and giving up, would have left them.  It grieves me, because His commandment is thou shalt not kill.  Killing oneself, and the temple, He resides in, is wrong.  

I don’t know Gods mercy, in all things.  But if I do not do my part, how can I work out my salvation, with fear and trembling, of Him.  When we are commanded to fear God.  That is not taught by our prolific, ministers.  Because they just tickle your ears.  But I have nothing to lose but my sorrows, by telling you to fear God, and don’t give up!

Sounds easy?  Huh?  It is if we take His yoke.  He told us, take my yoke it is easy…..

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU, AND LEARN OF ME; FOR I AM MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART:  AND YE SHALL FIND REST UNTO YOUR SOULS. FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT.  Matthew 11:30-31   KJV.  

Finding rest for your soul, requires your submitting to God, resisting the devil, and He will flee.  This is how we find our rest.

Not by giving up.  Till my last breath, I will trust God.  I will submit to God, I will resist the devil.  Whether or not anything else changes, or not.  I will try and do it His way.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.  

Go to Him now, bow down, in the sight of a mighty God.  Repent, tell Him you are sorry, tell Him, you want life abundantly.  Let Him heal you, and cleanse you, and renew you, for a new lease in life.  Read Jeremiah 17:14, it is a prayer, for healing…..

Yes, life, abundantly, by only doing that….. can start the process.  There is more.  A whole book, that tells you how.  And its not just in the book, I wrote, “HOW TO HAVE FAITH.”  But its in His holy word, a sword of truth, the King James Bible.  Don’t use anything else, if you don’t want to give up.

Yes, I could keep writing, here right now, but a little food for the soul, by writing Gods word, nourishes me, and so I close till, God says, write again, Elena.  

Write it again….

Blessings, and love,

In Christ,
