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


IMG_1316.jpegIs your Christianity “Socialistic” without works?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IMG_0011

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHEN YOU LONG TO BE RESTORED ~By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

AND I WILL RESTORE TO YOU THE YEARS, THAT THE LOCUST HATH EATEN, THE CANKERWORM, AND THE CATERPILLAR, AND THE PALMERWORM MY GREAT ARMY WHICH I SENT AMONG YOU. Joel 2:25 King James. 

Don’t ever think God cannot get you a message.  He can.  He did even now, by giving me this scripture.  You know how a thought comes to you, and then a scripture will be revealed.  Making it witness in the spirit.  So I know its for you too.  I know He knows, our Hearts.  He knows, I am thinking about this lately.  Just restoration.  He knows.

Do you ever miss what could have been?  Or do you miss what you have lost, personally, emotionally, physically, spiritually?

IMG_4189You long to be restored.  You long for God to just touch you.  To have mercy on you, to get back, or give back what the devil has stolen from you.  I think about that now and then, because I have lost some things, that I don’t think I can ever get back.  But maybe they were never meant to be.  But still there are some things that I know I have lost, but because I was very misguided.

Think about that, because this is where the spiritual curses came in that stole whatever it was, that was yours, but now you see it, and now you realize you want to be restored.

What did you do, that brought those things to happen?  Was it a sin, was it a generational sin, that turned into a curse?

You know, I believe in grace, and I believe in extending grace to myself, and others, but I see for myself sometimes where I was so naive, so trusting, so dumb, that I did not see what I was doing.  I hurt myself.   I know Gods word brings light, and opened my eyes.

And when you see that, by some of the things you reap, it can open your eyes.  Sin, will bring in the devourer, and eat up your crops.  Your spiritual blessings, even your money.

IMG_1493.jpgI don’t know if all things can be restored.  I know God does have the ability to restore all things, but I don’t know if it can be done in a lifetime.  Maybe you are totally restored in Gods Kingdom.

Sometimes, it takes a lifetime, to lose what you had, because of your own negligence, and that’s hard to face sometimes.  Because truth of the matter, is nobody, likes to admit, they are their own worse enemy.  But sometimes you do have to do that.  You have to sometimes, stop and ponder.  Reflect. Pray, and repent.

Sometimes, I think about when God does teach us lessons, and thats one reason, why I do fear God.

I don’t know, just the thought, of knowing I made some mistakes, that hurt me, grieves me.  Even though, I know God forgives me, sometimes, its hard for me to forgive myself.  And I don’t want to beat myself up, by thinking about some things.  But it helps me to know, if I am remorseful, then I can get right with God.

So, I do long for God to restore unto me everything, even things I cannot even put into words myself, but God knows.  And I just need to be grateful for where I am, what I am doing, but I know I need to enjoy the little things.  Even by myself, or with those I love.

I just need to get motivated, right now, and I kind of do long for restoration.  Right now, I am craving it, longing for it, and just trusting God.

This scripture ministers to me, maybe it will you as well.

RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY OF THE SALVATION:  AND UPHOLD ME WITH THY FREE SPIRIT.  PSALMS 51:12.  King James

David had written it, after Nathan the prophet had come to him after he had did what he did to get Bathsheba.  He sinned, greatly.  Taking her husbands life.  He was jealous, and wanted her.  And David saw his sin.  He pleaded to God for mercy, because of Gods loving kindness, he asked that God would blot out his transgressions.  He felt ashamed, and if we are ashamed, and go to God, that is good.

He wanted to be clean, to wipe the sin away.  He knew, God saw that.  He knew that God wanted truth in his inner being.  So, he wanted to be washed.  And he wanted to hear joy and gladness, to rejoice.  He did not want God to cast him away, or His holy spirit.  He said, I will teach transgressors truth, I will try and convert those to Him.

Gee I relate to that.  Because if I share anything here, with anybody.  I am not trying to talk about myself, but what God has done for me.  I want someone to avoid the mistakes I made.  A young girl.  Or whoever, even an old woman.

Because he did have a broken spirit, and a contrite heart.  So have I.  On occasion.

He knew God would not despise that.  I recommend reading the entire chapter of Psalms 51.  It is a beautiful chapter, that expressed repentance.

I think if we can come to that point with broken hearts, and see, our sins, even if everything is not restored, we can at least have peace with God.  Repentance, is a good thing.  It keeps the slate clean.  I believe in it daily.  See we are spiritual houses, and we need to keep our spiritual house clean daily.

Malachi 3, talks about God rebuking the devourer.  For our sakes.  The enemy that ate up your blessings.  I know it speaks about giving, but I want you to also see, it talks about how the curse came in.  Turning to God can break the curses.  Read it from a King James.  There you will see the holiness of it, because the word is not corrupted. IMG_4785.jpeg

I wish I could share more, here, even about myself, but I cannot put into words, all that I feel, as much as I have been an open book.  But some things, I hide now.  To protect my own being.

But I do trust God, and every day that He gives me to live, I pray, its for His glory.  Restoration, is such a gift, and I think if we can appreciate what we have, and who we are in Christ, by what Christ did for us, we can receive it.  With grace.  Hope this blesses you.

I believe what Christ did on the cross for me and you, is meant for us to see restoration is possible.  We just have to search for Him.  But He will show us.  Looking at all that He did for us on the cross reminds us how precious His sacrifice was for us, in love, and that it is a gift.  One of the benefits, I believe is restoration.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

 

 

MY SECRETS GOD HAS GIVEN ME SO ANYONE CAN BE AN EXPERT ON THE BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


POLQPkERTTq%WPR3o%LEZg.jpgYou can be an expert of the Bible.  But let me offer some of these secrets, that I have learned through my lifetime.   I have an understanding of Gods word.  And I am not trying to brag, and I am not in category of being called a Theologian.  

But I have hid Gods word in my heart, and when I need it, I know where to look.fullsizeoutput_1db1.jpeg

It does take diligence.  It takes the desire, to learn who God is, and to understand His ways.  To know Him personally.  It takes the desire to search!!!

For me, God has always tried to teach me, and I have not always been diligent, in this, but for me, falling to the bottom of the barrel, made me search, and I have not stopped searching.

When I say, I was at the bottom of the barrel, this was a time, where I was lost.  Where I was controlled by sin, because I was naive, and I just knew I could not stay there.  I was very misguided as a young woman, and as a teenager.  I had terrible judgment.

But as a child, my mother did try to teach me about who God is, by allowing me to go to Christian vacation, bible schools.  I thank God for that because it helped train me to at least look and search for God.  

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

There I had participated in Bible memory classes, and there were awards, given to those who could memorize scripture.  I liked the challenge, and would try and memorize Gods word.  And get awards.  Today serving, and surviving, with Gods word, makes the difference to me, and I would never let go of my word, from God. 

But those lessons, I put behind, when I grew up a little.  I wanted to party, but I left God out of the equation.  And sadly, I even denied God. Worse, mistake I could make in my life.

But knowing Gods word, even in the limited amount that I knew as a child, compelled me to seek God, for answers, because I needed answers.  This is how I got out of the bottom of the barrel.  I needed to know why my life was so messed up, for lack of better words.

I knew I had to repent to God, that was taught to me, at an early age.  I knew, I had to clear the slate, so to speak.  Because I knew, scripture said, God would not hear me, if I had sin.  I knew I had reaped my sins.  In other words, the things that I had did in sin, I saw that there were spiritual curses.  

So, I repented.  In fact, I still repent daily, I know how good repentance is for the soul.  I knew Christ died for my sins.  I knew, that He was resurrected.  I began seeing, how powerful His sacrifice was, and it made me come to my knees, and seek God.  Don’t be one of those who mocks repentance.  Did you know that is an indicator of pride?  

So long story short, this was my motive into searching for answers.  And to know God.

The following is just a basic draft, summarized.  I suppose I could turn this into a book, but I want to give you quick tips, so you can in your own way, know God, but also be someone, who can use Gods word, and know Gods word, when facing any kind of situation where Gods word is required to bring light, or insight, even to someone else, who needs to know truth.

But no doubt about it, knowing Gods Holy King James word, enhances your faith.

And this is where, I have grown myself.  Because I know that I know there is a God.

His Holy King James word, has so many capabilities, that I know I am scratching the surface.  But consider healings.  Consider relationships, marriage, and consider there is a word for everything.  All you have to do is search, and pray.  And if you make a vow to God, keep it.  Don’t play around with God.  And don’t treat Him, like an ATM, like the prosperity message teaches.  

But if you wonder why your faith is not strong, it could be very well, because you don’t know Gods word, and what He says.  It could also be because you don’t use a King James.  

This will affect your judgement.  Your words, and outlook:

  1. Ask God to open your eyes to scriptures, He wants you to learn.
  2. Read a King James Bible daily.  I read mine in the morning, and at night, before bedtime.
  3. Get a good Bible app, where you can download the King James bible.  Also there, you can find a good Bible study to read the Bible in a year. 
  4. Write scriptures down.
  5. Remember that the King James has “key” words for you to search where the others do not have those key words, to find the truth.  Even if you do not remember the entire verse, or where it is, if you at least remember a key word, it will help you search.  And find the scripture you need for reference.
  6. Buy a Bible Concordance.  This will have thousands of words, for you to search for scripture references.  This is where those “archaic” words will come in handy.
  7. Consider, creating a scripture journal.
  8. Share scripture with others on social media.
  9. Don’t get lazy, when it comes to knowing scripture, and search.  The secret in this, is that if you have a learning spirit, God will show you wondrous things in His word.
  10.  Get creative using scripture.  I like to post a scripture to a photograph now and then as part of my ministry.  And with all my writings, I apply scripture, as a foundation, so folks, will see, that I am not just talking, the talk, but I have the King James scripture to back it up.
  11. Stay hungry, and thirsty for Gods word.  He will fill you with truth, but you have to want to learn who He is.  
  12. Don’t let your bible get dusty.  A good sign of a well balanced person in Christ is someone whose Bible shows wear and tear on it.

What I have noticed, and this makes me very sad, but I am sure God as well, is that Christians do not know Gods word.  This makes them very vulnerable to the world, to those who hate God, to those who purposely challenge us, as Christians.  You are not completely wearing your armor of God.   And whose fault is that?

When you need a word of God, you should be somewhat familiar, with what God says in a matter, to even be able to go to a King James Bible and do a search with a key word.

These subject matters come up often, but instead of pulling out a scripture to say,  “Thus saith the Lord.”  People are left not knowing truth.

From homosexuality, (which by the way, that word is not in a King James bible) but it is an abomination to God.  

0tcXf%IUQoCwRxTfzpe8sw.jpg 

To abortion.
cjqNgvZxQ96vcVprr6K3QQ.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

To even matters of whether or not we should pray for our leaders, these verses, are in a Bible.  Which reminds me, pray for our President.  Don’t you see the spiritual battle America is in?oVVGLhJKTo6LVp1ubRxVEgBut if you don’t open up a King James bible, you won’t get any understanding.

I personally, do not understand this.  Is it laziness?  Is it just pride, to think you can find your own way in life?  But what I will say, is that you have the tool there, but to me, when you don’t know, what God says, you hurt yourselves.  

And I will be totally frank, you are not acting like a true soldier of the Lord, if you don’t know holy word.  The Holy Spirit, cannot prompt you in matters, to even give you discernment, because you won’t learn it, you won’t use it, and you get lazy.  

The sad thing is, that you could be light. You could bring light to the darkness, that blinds yourself, and others.  You could warn someone.  And don’t confuse, warning with judging, because we are called to warn, and love warns.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James.  

Its up to you, but you know, with what I know from Gods word, I know it has built my faith.  It has given me boldness, courage, because I know what God says about some things.  

And no, I do not proclaim to know everything, but everything I know about God is because I searched.  If you don’t search, you only have yourself to blame.  But I actually think its stupid, to ignore, what God says.

Yes, He loves us.  But there will come a time, and in fact, the Holy Spirit, prompted me even this morning, to remind us all, that yes God loves us, but His wrath will be revealed for those who mock and disobey.  Who play at church, and religion.  But have no true substance, who have not taken word to root in their souls.  This is wrong, in His sight.  God is not mocked.  Read Galatians 6:7 from a King James.

And I don’t care who you are, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God, and if you mock God or His truth, that wrath will be revealed.  We all reap what we sow.  Oh my gosh, if you only knew what you are doing, when you deny God, or when you deny His truth, or you mock Him.  

I know, the hard way, I reaped some terrible things, because of my disobedience.  But it made me run to the cross, it made me seek God, and seek His truth.  

And I have the fear of God.

fullsizeoutput_1dcd

I was so spiritually attacked.  I thought, I was losing my mind.  I was so fearful, paranoid, and the enemy knew that, I did not have a strong defense.  Now I roar back like a lion myself, because of who Christ is in me, and at that ugly old devil, and tell him to back off, because I know what God says.  My courage, and boldness, is there.  My armor of God is on, and my sword of truth, which is my King James bible is sharp!  And I remind the devil, he has lost the battle because of Christ.  See I know the Battle is Gods, I know the power of God, this is why I glorify Him, and I will not be ashamed.  And when I know I cannot fight it, or things seem impossible, I am reminded what the Holy King James scriptures say.  That all things are possible with God. I pray, to God, and ask Him to release my angels, by God, to fight those demons, and all I have to do is submit to God, resist the enemy, and the enemy will flee.  

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.  I JOHN 3:8  King James. 

Folks, I don’t know what else to tell you, but start studying His word, don’t be one of those flaky Christians.  Because some day you, and I and the world, will stand before God, and what will He say? fullsizeoutput_1db5.jpeg

Please start using your King James bibles.  Theres a lost world out there, and a battle for souls, and you could win a soul for Christ, but you could also deliver yourself.  

I have given you photographs of scriptures, from a King James.  When you are prompted, look up these words, because they are KEY WORDS and go to a good Bible app.  Or a King James concordance, and search.  I could give you the verse numbers, and chapters.  But then you won’t grow.  Searching yourself, will make you learn and grow. 

This is why you don’t want to use a corrupted Bible, that has changed the words.  You won’t find the truth.   Please search for God, and search for truth. Our world, our country, needs you to be faithful to know what God says, if you call yourself a Christian.

I want you to especially remember this last photograph.  If you want to get into the Holy city, and have your name in the book of life.  You need to know what God says about not using holy word.  

I will share this verse, in this post, because I want you to know exactly what the consequences are, for messing with Gods holy word, and using word that is corrupted.  It is Revelation 22:18-19.  Please note as you read it,  you can be denied access to the Holy city.  You can have your name removed from the book of life.  Don’t play with your salvation.  Learn and know what God says.

Remember these verses, and search!   READ YOUR BIBLE!  Share this, at least try and open someones eyes.  Besides your own….

Blessings, in Christ,

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2278.jpeg

I love how God makes connections, and yes even in prayer.  

I see how He uses, the prayer, of a righteous person, to avail much.  

CONFESS YOUR FAULTS ONE TO ANOTHER, AND PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER, THAT YE MAY BE HEALED.  THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH.  JAMES 5:16  KJV.  

He seems to bring everything together, for a heart, that loves Him.  I see His hand in prayer.  I know about prayer, because I was conceived because of prayer.  Long story short, mama could not have children, my father prayed for me, I was conceived.

Because I know that God knows us, I know, I am also called to pray.  

BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE BELLY I KNEW THEE; AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE WOMB I SANCTIFIED THEE, AND I ORDAINED THEE A PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.  Jeremiah 1:5  KJV.  

Think about that.  God knew you during the time, of your growth in the womb.  Makes one sad, when we think of all those, that do not even make it out of the womb, because  their mothers, did not see the value of life.  Or even in knowing God.  Sad to see, abortion or infanticide accepted.  

I pray, even now, they open their eyes, to God.  Each child has a gift, that God has given, which leads me even more as to why praying for one another is so important.  

So, as I continue in this thought of prayer, I want to encourage you to pray.  To think about getting right with God, in the sense, so you can be righteous, and your prayers will count.

Get right with God.  It is a process, even in just being able to have access to the Holy Spirit.  But I know God even hears the cry, or the desire of the heart, if we come before Him, humble, and even repentant.   See, if there is sin there, God says, He will not hear.

IF I REGARD INIQUITY IN MY HEART, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR ME.  Psalms 66:18  KJV

So, the goal is always to get right with God, especially if you want Him to hear you, but also to answer you.  In prayer. 

I know a lot of people don’t agree with my method, in this, but as a Prayer intercessor, I actually believe in re-dedicating yourself to God, to get results.  By repentance.  It clears the slate. I know people don’t agree, because they have challenged me.  But, I know God does give answers.  So don’t ever give up on prayer.  

And well, to conclude this, somewhat, pray for others.  Pray for those who have hurt you.  Pray, because maybe inadvertently you may have hurt them too.  Just pray for folks.  Remember, when we get our eyes off of ourselves, onto God, for others, He hears that.

Remember Job from your King James bible?  He prayed for his friends.  And God answered him, and blessed him, and gave him double for his troubles.  He came out of it, hurt, but with a very humble and repentant heart.  

Look, its imperative that we are praying before trouble happens.  Its imperative, that we believe in miracles, before a miracle is desperately needed.  If we all increased our prayer life, to be dedicated in that, I think the world could, and would be a different place.  I believe we could avoid things, troubles, situations….

Right now, I am praying for someone I know, that I call a friend.  She needs a miracle.  She needs God to intervene on her behalf.  I won’t say what it is, but I know she does need a miracle.  An answer to prayer.  

The enemy, has tried to divide us, as friends and I see it.  And the circumstances are so out of my control.  But I also see, I need to pray for her.  God knows all the details.  He understands, and has a way.  But I am dedicated to pray for her.    

It seems like we are trying to be accountable with one another, we are confessing our faults, and even though their are wounds, we are trying to walk in love.  I don’t know where our friendship will go.  But I do pray God bless her, especially now.  

I pray she gets an answer.  Will you pray for her too?

In any event, I do want to give you a secret to praying.  That I believe I have learned….

Don’t have anything against anyone.  Don’t covet, or be jealous of them.  Or anybody for that matter.  Be happy for people.  Forgive people.  Release, resentment, or offenses, and just really pray for someone.  Even someone who has hurt you, or someone you have hurt, or someone who you are no longer in contact with.  

Theres are spiritual ties, that you can receive, in a negative way, that can interfere with your prayer life, if you hold onto these strange resentments, jealousies, or hate.  I believe they can block prayers from being answered.  So I try to be careful in these matters.  

Pray to God, to ask God to help you.  Remember Job, again God blessed him as he prayed. For his friends.  And his friends, were somewhat judgmental, perhaps a little jealous, and they challenged him.  They spoke truth, I believe, but you know sometimes, truth can be harsh.  After all, Job, had terrible losses.  He had suffered quite a bit.  But Job would not let them have the upper hand or let them make him feel inferior, even when he answers them, stating:

BUT I HAVE UNDERSTANDING AS WELL AS YOU; I AM NOT INFERIOR TO YOU: YEA, WHO KNOWETH NOT SUCH THINGS AS THESE?  JOB 12:3  KING JAMES.

Job, is a great example, even to me, in situations with friends, because I have lost a few friends.  Even Christian friends, and I know one thing about myself, is I never have been jealous of my friends.  And I am happy for them.  I cannot recall ever putting a head trip on them, because of what they had, or who they were.  When they are blessed, or if they are blessed.  

If something is wrong with them, in the sense, that they may have character flaws, at this point, I just pray for them.  I try to extend grace.  Maybe I do come across judgmental, in other matters, but I try not to be….  I try to extend grace with truth. But oh well.  But I know the difference.  

In fact, I pray for them now, because maybe I wasn’t mature enough when I knew them either, I don’t know, I guess, I relate to Job in a lot of ways.  I may have stopped praying for them, when our friendships ended.  But lately, God has been putting it on my heart to pray for those who hurt me.   To forgive.  To walk in love. Like Job did. 

So, I will pray for people, and I pray, I release them, in all things.  I think there is a secret to just accepting people, extending grace.  And being happy for people.  When they are happy.  Or blessed.  

So pray for your friends, be careful with the jealousy, and comparing yourself with others.  Because truth is, we all have our faults.  We all sin, and we all come short of the glory of God.  

I think there’s the secret, when we can repent, and just love, forgive, and pray for one another.  No matter what.  The greatest commandment is to love, God, and then love others.  Be accountable.  Be apologetic, I know it soothes my soul, when someone apologizes.  

Job is a great example of how God can bless someone, as he prayed for others…..

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

I hope, you pray for one another.  I hope, I gave you indicators, a hint, to see, what God says about prayer, and how prayers can be stopped, if we are not right with God.  Or even others.  

Blessings, and love,

SEEKING GODS DESIRE FULFILLED IS THE DESIRE OF MY HEART ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2234.jpegSeeking Gods desires fulfilled, is the desire of my heart.  

I love the Lord.  I thank him, and pray, to do so daily.  I pray to please Him.  To comfort Him, to give Him hope in us, as people.  Oh I know God knows everything, and I know He knows who belongs to Him, His precious people, His sheep.  But He is my God, and it grieves me, when I see what I do see sometimes…..

What could I do? And what can I do even now?  I don’t always know, but I am willing to try…

For,  I do pray to fulfill His desires, with the calling He has placed on my life.  

Life. It is a journey….  

Life can be wasted, if the focus is not on focus on God.  If it is not dedicated to God.  

I look back on my life.  And it brings tears to my eyes.  How much I wasted.  How much I sinned.  How terrible my judgment was.  How trusting I was in people.  And people let you down.  I wish, I had known more about the fear of God, in my walk, earlier, perhaps, I would have avoided some things….but I have learned. 

Nothing works, without Gods hand on it, nor does it bring joy.

I guess, that’s why I just have this revelation today.  Because He promises, that if we delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our heart.

DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD; AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.  PSALM 37:4 KING JAMES.   

But I believe thats in giving Him the desire of His heart.  

Just my thought…. any way.  I hope you ponder on that thought, and think about it, for your own life.  For your own relationship with God.  

See, its been a while, where I have tried, and I am not perfect at this.  But I try to get my eyes off of what I want.  What I need.  Trying to be more grateful thankful.  Less of me, more of Him.  I have had my eyes on myself far too long.  And made mistakes… that have hurt myself. 

It has changed my perspective in….What I desire….yet the scripture says, He will give us the desires of our heart.  

I see folks, searching for power.  For fame.  For money.  For beauty.  And to me, these things do not bring me closer to the Lord.  In fact, I would actually state, that I think seeking those things do not come from Gods Kingdom, but from the enemy.  Gods enemy the devil.  

FOR THE WICKED BOASTETH OF HIS HEARTS DESIRE, AND BLESSETH THE COVETOUS, WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH.  PSALMS 10:3  KING JAMES.   

So because he is Gods enemy, he is mine as well.  I will serve God, and I will be very careful not to give place to the enemy.  I submit to God, resist the devil, and he must flee.  

But I have, I know, by my sins.  I did give place to the enemy.  That did not produce righteous fruit, but even curses.  But those curses, are covered now by the blood of Jesus.  For I have repented, and I am very careful in spiritual matters now.  

Oh I know God can bless, but I have come to a place and its been a while, where I seek His face.  Not His hand.  And those kind of messages, where the prosperity message is promised, is so deceiving.  Because one does not grow. One does not understand who God is….

Nothing can take His place of just knowing He is there.  Nothing can comfort me more in a world, where anything is not predictable.  But who He is, and His promises.  All of them, that I find in my King James bible, that is holy.  

To me, having sweet fellowship, and peace, and just a sense of knowing He is there, blesses me, that is now the desire of my heart.  Sure there are things in life, I like, may even desire, but they can never, ever have priority over my relationship with my Lord.  

How I long to please Him give Him the desire of His heart.  By love, by obedience, by sweet fellowship, in prayer, by using the discernment He gives me, to know what to do by His Holy Spirit.  By understanding to try and keep His laws.  Oh many have a hard time with that, but God is a legal God, and thats where happiness is.

WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  PROVERBS 29:18  KING JAMES. 

Thats my goal, my job in life, to give Him my Lord, the desires of His heart.  That will make me happy…  Just to be willing to Love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind….

Hope this blesses you today..

Hope this blesses God more…

Lord, I thank you Father.  Thank you Lord Jesus, Thank you, for everything, my God, by your Holy spirit.  I pray, Lord, that I am always mindful to make my desire, the desire of your Heart.  You are God, and there is none else.  You deserve all glory, all honor, and praise, to be mentioned.  Forgive me if I have ever failed you in this.  I am sure I have. And it grieves me.  But I pray, to please you.  I do love you Lord.  More than ever….For thy will to be done, in Jesus name.  Amen.  

LORD, THOU HAST HEARD THE DESIRE OF THE HUMBLE:  THOU WILL PREPARE THEIR HEART, THOU WILT CAUSE THINE EARS TO HEAR:   PSALM 10:17  KING JAMES.  

In Christ,

WHEN YOU COME TO A POINT WHERE YOU TRUST GOD & OBEY HIM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2052.jpeg

There are days, when things seem so clearer.  Revelations from God.  And where you just come to a point, and you are not giving up.  

But you are giving into God, and totally trusting Him, obeying Him, walking in love, seeking to keep His commandments, and just  letting go, and letting God.  

You speak it, because thats where the commitment comes in.  You tell yourself, just trust God, just obey Him.  Do your part.  I search in my King James, bible for these truths.  Because its Holy word, not changed. And God speaks to me.  

You realize that this is the key, to life.  To make sense.  To come to grips with situations.  Because life is so unpredictable.  But to over and over struggle, is just not healthy.  

Sometimes you let go.  

Yet, there is a part of me, that is actually very stubborn, where I hold on.  Where I won’t give up hope.  But it is because I am holding onto God.  It is not over, till He says its over.  Then I will totally let go.  But if I see a glimmer of hope, I am holding onto that thought.  I trust God.  But I have to obey. 

I guess, because I am older now, and I have always loved God, but you know sometimes, I have struggled with things.  I have struggled, with people.  I have struggled, with my own self worth.  And I am actually tired of dealing with these things in my mind.

The scripture says, there is no peace to the wicked.  I don’t try to be wicked.  I don’t try to hurt anybody, I don’t try to disobey God. For many years, I have tried to be kind, forgiving, loving.  Yes obedient….

I have tried not to open spiritual doors, that brings curses.  But I suppose that sin nature can creep in, if I don’t totally submit to God.  And resist the devil.  So I try to watch myself in these spiritual matters.  

But I am blunt, and that can hurt.  But I know some truths, about who God is, and I know what His word says, in some ways, and I try to share it.  Some think or feel it’s judging.  I feel like its warning, and thats what I try to do, on occasion.  They cannot handle me.  Well thats o.k.  I don’t need to be handled.  But it would have been nice, if I had been accepted.  With love, and friendship.  In Christ.  

Anyway, I am facing something right now, where I am weary.  I don’t have the bounce I used to.  And it seems to be a distraction, where I have not been able to give full attention to this, and I keep thinking about the past, and the friends, I love.  It does seem like the enemy has been trying to attack me.  In matters of friendship. But I do rebuke that, and plead the blood of Jesus in that.  

And I just have come to a place where, I am saying Lord, I trust you.  

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

I cannot try to second guess, or trouble shoot something, or analyze it so much.  That would be inclining to my own understanding, and here in this scripture God is saying don’t do that.  Just trust me.  He says….

Now when push comes to shove.  I just have to trust God.  I have to coast.  Go with the flow.  Float, hang on. Ride it out.  

I realize, though, and I always have realized that I have my part in this.  On how it goes.  In the spiritual realm of things.  God is a spirit, and so I worship Him, in spirit and in truth.  Whether people agree.  Whether people want to have anything to do with me, is really not my concern.  In the sense, that people, cannot dictate to me, by their actions, by their love, or hate, whether or not I care.  

Because I care what God thinks.  I care, if I please God.  

I have had relationship problems with people for most of my life, where they just seem to go.  Even family.  And yes friends.  

The family that left, did not mean to leave me.  But some did.  They wanted nothing to do with me.  

Friends is where I had hope in.  I adopted people, as family.  Because I did not have a strong family foundation.  Growing up.  But I do now.  God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and son.  

But, Friends in Christ.  Well, those did not last.  And that has grieved me, greatly, I did not want to accept it.  But I do now, because I thought the foundation was in love, and God is love, and He never fails.  But people do.  

Its not all lost, don’t get me wrong. I think I have a couple of friends left, and I just need to say that.  But I don’t want to intrude on those frienships.  I want to cherish them, but I am a little afraid, that they will go too….  So I think I am keeping my distance.  I don’t want to, but I am afraid to get close to friends any more.  

I think I have a bit of PTS.  (Post Traumatic Syndrome)  You know like a warrior has, a soldier, who has been in the war zone.  

Where I have had a bit of stress, from this, and it is just making me very cautious, and not paranoid, I hate to use that word, because God has not given me a spirit of fear.  But where I am just not able to trust.  To be honest.  I am afraid to trust friends again.  And that is sad.  

But let me add because I never know who my audience is, is that I know, and believe God can heal anything.  Anything!  Nothing is impossible with God, as the scriptures state. Spiritually, physically, emotionally, whatever.  He can heal it.  And that’s always my hope.  But right now, this is where I am.  

Where I guess, I kind of expect some folks to leave, if they are friends.  Because most of them have left.  And when I think about it, it bothers me.  Like its a bad track record.  And I guess, I have blamed myself.  But I am tired.  And I say I forgive, but maybe I have not.  Maybe I resented.  And maybe, it has hurt me, spiritually.  Because it may be sin.  I don’t know.

But because I am in the position I am in now, and I am tired.  I am actually telling God, to bless those who have hurt me.  To comfort them.  To give them wisdom, love and understanding.  I am saying this, even though, I have felt abandoned by some folks.  I did not understand it.  

But I cannot hold onto it any more.  I release it.  Like a balloon, and if it pops somewhere oh well.  Or like a gift, that just brings joy.  But I am not holding onto it.  I am trusting God, and just letting go, and letting God. Walking in love, forgiving.  

Trying to change my heart, because my mind is changing.  I change it willingly to remind myself to seek Gods heart.  So I can have Gods mind.  The mind of His son, our Lord, Christ. 

Hoping that the release, will release me, in the spirit.  So I can go on….To whatever the will of God is.  

Its the holy week.  A few days before Resurrection Sunday.  And I am just trying to reconnect more with my Lord.  I am trying to be strong, in love, and forgiveness, as Christ was, and is.  I am reminded of His sacrifice, and that there was no greater sacrifice.  Then what He did.  I am being quiet.  Avoiding social media.  The toxicity of that, politics. etc.  

There is a part of me, where I don’t understand, those who do not take His word, and love to heart.  But maybe thats not my place.  

Maybe I am just called to walk alone, without these people, but love them in my heart anyway.  Isn’t that what Christ did, in the sense, that He takes all these sins, thoughts, and just covers them with love?  

And I feel like emphasizing that thought in love.  Just love them.  Be grateful, they touched your life.  Even though they are not near me.  For whatever reasons.  Just remember the good times, just hold them close, in hope and thought, because God loves them too.  Pray for them, because you know their weak points.  Pray, God helps them.  Remember the laughs, remember the joy.  The times, we prayed, or had fellowship, and it was all so very good.  It really was…..But I cannot miss it, any longer, or long for it, because then it holds me back.  

And I think if I can do that, I can let go, I can release them all in sweet feelings.  I can have peace about it.  I am going to call that obeying God, and trusting God in the matter.  Because thats where I am at this point.  

But in there is a place of reconciling with Him, to love Him, and to just come to that point, where you totally release everything to Him, because He is God.  Because you see, you cannot control it, or take care of it always. But He can….

A BLESSING, IF YE OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY:  DEUTERONOMY 11:27  KJV.  

Hope that makes sense, but that’s “Just My Thoughts” today….I love the Lord.  

AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.  ROMANS 8:28  KJV.

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THE SPIRIT OF JEALOUSY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Please Note:  I had published this, but deleted it.  I felt the Lord telling me to remove it  but now, I am republishing it.  I have been dealing with things lately, that seem so overwhelming.  But I am trusting God.  I have not been making good decisions, in some ways.  With people, or with trust issues. God knows.  But I am dealing with things spiritually, and it all seems too much for me.  But I am seeking God.  This, is something I hope will help someone.  This I write as an outlet.  Again its not meant to hurt anybody if they read it.  I would never want to do that.  But some things in the spiritual realm cannot be reasoned, or understood.  They need Gods attention.  This is why I serve Him.  Because I cannot always do things, but He can.  

Instructions on how to deal with the spirit of jealousy.  Why do I say one needs instructions on this matter?  Because God dealt with it.  And He is always our example.  Recently, and I will not go into details, I witnessed the spirit of jealousy.  And I knew I had to pray.  I became silent.  I knew it was wrong, but I did not know how to deal with it.  And I prayed fervently for guidance, but also for this person.  God answered me quickly.  With instruction and His counsel. Because I prayed in love.  Because I submitted to God, resisted the devil.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7  KJV.  

I believe this is the instruction and counsel God gave me, so I am sharing it here.   

There Are Two Different Kinds Of Jealousy:  

A good kind, that comes from God.  And an evil kind that comes from the devil:  

HOW ART HOU FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O lucifer, SON OF THE MORNING!  HOW ART THOU CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND, WHICH DIDST WEAKEN THE NATIONS!  FOR THOU HAST SAID IN THINE HEART, I WILL ASCENT INTO HEAVEN, I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD:  I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH.  I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS; I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.  YET THOU SHALT BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL, TO THE SIDES OF THE PIT. ISAIAH 14:12-15  King James.  

So, do you, see the devils jealousy concerning God in this? 

The good kind of jealousy, comes from God in the sense, that He is very jealous, when it comes to anything, or anybody, trying to steal His glory, or in protecting His people.

FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, EVEN A JEALOUS GOD.  DEUTERONOMY 4:24  King James.    

He is fierce, when dealing with this, because He dealt with it, when it came to the devil.  In the beginning.  He dealt with it, and kicked out the devil, from heaven, because He would not allow any kind of strife, that stemmed from jealousy, in His Kingdom.  

And because I know God, and I know His personality in this matter, I understand, why He would not allow that kind of jealousy in His Kingdom, because it does take away His glory.  

So if he does not allow it, neither should we…. 

GOD IS JEALOUS, AND THE LORD REVENGETH; THE LORD REVENGETH AND IS FURIOUS; THE LORD WILL TAKE VENGEANCE ON HIS ADVERSARIES, AND HE RESERVETH WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES.  NAHUM 1:2  KJV.   

The bad kind of jealousy, from the devil, tries to puff itself up.  It can become pride. It tries to steal Gods glory.  It tries to have what God has, by using tactics, that are not of love.  It tries to manipulate, and that is another sign.  Because it tries to control.  Thats not of God.  

It does try and take away His peace.  The peace of God, because the jealousy will always rear up its ugly head like a snake.  You cannot trust jealousy. It does deceive. It does make itself, a form of idolatry, and God will not allow that, because of His great love.  Because He is love.  But if you allow it, by not recognizing it, you are sinning. 

If one studies the attributes of love.  It does not puff itself up, love from God, it does not manipulate, it does not wish, bad, or hate anyone.  It always forgives.  It does not seek to control, or torment, or be a false witness etc.  Lies etc.  It is not counterfeit.

Love from God is not counterfeit, if the principles of God are applied.   But one must see. 

Jealousy, that is not of God, will do that.  It opens doors, spiritually, that are not of God.  So it must be dealt with.  One might not even intend any ill, or evil, but because that spirit is allowed, it brings curses, that are not of God.  It is a spiritual principle.  Like what goes up, comes down.  Well jealousy, brings curses.  The hedge of protection, in pleading the blood of Jesus, and by departing from that, will close those doors to curses.

THE LORD WILL NOT SPARE HIM, BUT THEN THE ANGER OF THE LORD AND HIS JEALOUSY SHALL SMOKE AGAINST THAT MAN, AND ALL THE CURSES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK SHALL LIE UPON HIM, AND THE LORD SHALL BLOT OUT HIS NAME FROM UNDER HEAVEN.  DEUTERONOMY 29:20  KJV.    

Please note, from this verse, salvation can be lost.  The name blotted out of the Book of Life.

One has to look at the perspective, of whether or not they have the jealousy.  Or if they are the object of the jealousy.  And deal with it.  

How does one deal with it?  First of all pray.  Seek Gods wisdom, in this matter. But read on, and receive more understanding.  

So, let us look at it first from the perspective of the person, who has the jealousy.  

The jealousy, will make someone take their eyes off of God, and His promises.  It is a strange form of idolatry.  They may not even realize it, but it is a distraction.  It is making them, look at the person, as a source of their problem.  They may not mean to do that.  Because they may love that person.  But, when they begin to compare their life, to that person, in their attributes, qualifications, things they possess, people in their lives, they will compare.  Jealousy is evident. 

They may see themselves in a very low light, where they diminish their own attributes, or they lose their own self esteem, because they are constantly looking at that person, and it makes them feel inadequate.  They are looking at that person, and not realizing it, taking their eyes off of God.  The devil will use that against them.  

This is not of God. Again, I will repeat this is not of God!  

They inadvertently, begin to see that person, in a negative light, and as much as they may love someone, they cannot help but compare, with jealousy.  

This is not healthy for someone to do this, because the spiritual soul ties, blocks their own blessings.  Blocks their own gifts.  Blocks doors opening for them, because they are looking at someone, with jealousy, and not totally looking at God.  

This I believe is one of the greatest sins, the devil could try to deceive someone in, because he does not want people to be fulfilled, or blessed.  This is again, one of his characteristics, because he was jealous of God.  

I think for the Christian, who does not recognize this spirit, of jealousy, is playing with their salvation.  Not only are they blocking their own personal blessings.  I think they could lose their salvation.  After all, the devil was in heaven, and he got kicked out of heaven, because of jealousy.

When one sees, that, one should distance themselves from the object of jealousy, and run to God.  Run to the throne of God.  Don’t walk.  Run!  Repent.  See the danger of it.  Because it can again, open doors that are not of God.  And one never wants to do that.  

Doors cannot open from God, if this sin, of jealousy is evident.  It will block, the blessings of God.  It is sin.  To be jealous.  

Prayers will not be heard.  He says iniquities separates us, so He will not hear.  So you have to repent and depart from anything that will cause that jealousy.  

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

ISAIAH 59:2  KJV

You don’t have to be in someones life, to love them.  And always love.  Even if you love from a distance, with good thoughts.  Prayers. Walk in love. This is how Christ said we would be known by, our love.

But if it is something, that is not dealt with, you have to see, love is the greatest sacrifice, to want the best for someone.  So repent, and do what’s right.  

Leaving someone alone, is a sacrifice….  

As Christ did.  See, He loved us so much, that He paid the penalty of our sins, so we could escape the legal penalty of sin. By giving His life, that was holy to stop the penalty of sin. Without Him, without His sacrifice, the enemy would have a victory, a legal right to attack, but you have your part in avoiding this sin, of jealousy, by recognizing it, departing from it, and submitting to God totally.  Resisting the devil.

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL. I JOHN 3:8 KJV.   

So, if you are the object of someones jealousy…

You have to see, that the best thing, one must do, on your part, is to distance themselves from that person.  Because real love, does not want to make someone unhappy.  Real love, prays for that person.  Because if you really love, someone you don’t want to make someone miserable.  You do not want to hurt them.  By staying in a relationship, or friendship, that constantly makes someone reminded, that you have what they want.  

Love does not torment people.  To torment.  For the sake of tormenting.  That is pure evil.  Love does not provide a way or set up a path, to make someone jealous.  So you have to gain strength, and walk away.  

I have seen jealousy in my own life.  And it has grieved me.  I have not always recognized it.  On my part, or on others.  But, God has given me discernment, and I do understand it.  Now. I do understand, that if it is not dealt with, it can bring unhappiness, block blessings, bring curses, and it is not healthy. 

But I have also learned, that if you love people.  You are happy for them.  You don’t compare your life to theirs.  You don’t compete.  You don’t try to make them unhappy, because you are unhappy.  You don’t try and put a guilt trip on someone, because they are blessed.  

One has to see themselves what they have done, to make their own unhappiness, and not make others a focal point of their own mistakes or sins.    

You have to recognize who God is, and how He dealt with this, and you have to see, its not healthy spiritually.  

When I was younger, perhaps, I was jealous of folks.  It seemed it brought out the worse in me.  To lower my self-esteem.  To always compare.  That was immaturity on my part.  I grew out of it.  Life taught me that.  My own sins, have shown me the error of my ways.  I still grieve because of my sins.  

I did come to a place, though, where I realized in life, there will always be prettier, more blessed, more talented, more richer,  more people, who have things and attributes, gifts, characteristics that I do not have. And I don’t have to have something that does not belong to me.  By striving for it, by jealousy.    

But that does not discount, who God has made me.  I am blessed.  In my own right. Because of His Righteousness.

I don’t have to compare myself to them, because I am actually happy, for people, now when they are blessed. I see the fruit of it.  I have joy, for others.  I don’t compare my life, to their life.  Even in the body of Christ.  

Especially, in the body of Christ.  Because that is not allowed in Gods Kingdom.  And so if you are jealous on earth, I think again, you are playing with your salvation.  

So, I don’t go about, trying, to make them feel bad, for having something I don’t have.  Or have. I recognize, life is a journey.  And I always have to try, to be in that place where I can hear from God, and obey God.  Because His ways, are the way, of truth, and life.  John 14:6  King James.  

I know we all have gifts and callings, that God has placed in our lives, but they cannot be fulfilled, if the sin, of jealousy is there.  It will block the blessings.  And if you love someone, truly someone, you have to let them go, if you see jealousy on your side, or on theirs.  Because that is not love.  That is not love that comes from God.  

It does not mean, it is forever.  It does not mean, it cannot be rectified.  Or even final. Perhaps, the friendship, or relationship, can be healed or mended, by time, by letting God into the situation, totally, by repenting, and by loving enough to let someone be.  

Acknowledging the sin.  Being honest about it.  Letting God bless you, because you are obedient. 

By, literally setting them free.  Like the saying goes;

“If you love someone, or something set them free.  If they belong to you, they will return.”  

If not, well it was not meant to be by God.  

One will see, it was not the will of God.  And folks, one needs to be mindful of that, by not trying to manipulate people or situations, just because you love, or want them in your life.  

In that time, of separation, quietness, God can bless you.  God can open the doors for you.  But you have to let go of the sin of this, to receive the blessing.  

Even here I received this instruction, because I had to be silent.  I could not react to that situation, because I could have damaged it far more then what it was.  I know myself.  I have a sharp tongue. But because I love this person, and more than anything, I love God, I managed self-control, to pray.  To be silent.  

To know that jealousy is a green eyed monster, that is the devil.  

AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND satan, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:  HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.  REVELATION 12:9  King James.  

By letting the person go, you are taking the first step.  Because then you are totally submitting to God, by recognizing the sin of this, and asking Him to change it.  The distraction of that person, is no longer there, and the healing can begin.  For you, and that person. 

If its crossed a line though, where there is abuse, verbal, or physical, though, one should forgive, but one cannot forget.  And in any area of jealousy one should forgive.  But….

It is hard to trust, anybody, when these lines have been crossed.  Into personal space, or spiritual space.  

When one apologizes, it should be, where, one is not reminded of that because forgiveness is there.  One should not apologize and then repeat the offense.  Because then its just lip service.  But it should not be brought up again, to be used against a person.  

So proceed or withdraw with caution.  If one is truly using discernment from God, they will recognize the spirit of jealousy.  It may take some time.  It does not always manifest itself. But if it is there, it will reveal itself, sooner or later.  Even in the strangest of conditions.  I have seen it time, and time again. 

If someone tells you, they are jealous.  Of you, or who you are. Believe them.  See, you cannot confuse, that for being happy for someone because it comes from a place of comparing.  And that is not healthy spiritually, for either party.  

SUFFER NOT THY MOUTH TO CAUSE THY FLESH TO SIN; NEITHER SAY THOU BEFORE THE ANGEL, THAT IT WAS AN ERROR:  WHEREFORE SHOULD GOD BE ANGRY AT THY VOICE, AND DESTROY THE WORK OF THINE HANDS.  ECCLESIASTES 5:6.  KJV.  

In this scripture I see, admitting the truth in this, not denying the jealousy, will be the beginning to set someone free.   

Don’t ever take someones weakness, in matter like this, and use it.  Against them.  Don’t flaunt your attributes, or whatever it is, that person, is struggling with, and try to make them feel inadequate.  Because they are jealous. I think God would and could punish someone, for trying to use that against them.  Don’t play with these spiritual matters.  

Fear God.  I do. 

Thats why I think one should depart from situations like that.

SO WILL I MAKE MY FURY TOWARD THEE TO REST, AND MY JEALOUSY SHALL DEPART FROM THEE, AND I WILL BE QUIET, AND WILL BE NO MORE ANGRY.  EZEKIEL 16:42  KJV.  

Just remember this, that kind of jealousy is not of God.  

Any child of God, who wants God to bless them, or that person, they love, should depart.  So the devil can depart. And pray, always constantly pray for someone.  See the enemy, does come to kill, steal and destroy.  Don’t give him a legal right to attack you, or someone else.  

And because I recently seen this, and though, I love this person dearly, it has made me pray for this person, more fervently, because I love this person, and I would never want to make this person unhappy, or sorrowful, by comparing myself to this person, or this person, to compare herself to me.  I want this person, happy, blessed, fulfilled, in Christ.  And as much as it grieves me to let this person go, I will, so the enemy will not have any place in this matter.  

It just is not healthy, for myself, as well, spiritually, to think my happiness would make them miserable, so I would rather, just walk away, and see if God can heal this.  Because if I don’t… Every time, I would see this person, I would think is this person o.k. now, or am I still a thorn in this persons side?  For this person to be jealous.  I never want to be used by the enemy, to bring jealousy, or unhappiness to anyone.  Thats not who I am.  In Christ. 

I know God always uses things I go through, to help others, and I hope it helps.  This is why I write.  I am just someone who can and will be obedient to God, to share truth.  And truth, brings light.

This is my way of trying to heal my own heart.  My own sadness.  By writing about this.  It is not meant to hurt anybody.  Or to make someone feel bad.  This is a deep rooted matter, that can hurt any of us.  I am just trying to be brave enough, to express this so it can help others.  And yes again, myself. For healing spiritually. 

Get a King James bible.  Look up scriptures on jealousy, understand Gods perspective in this, and let this be your guide.  Understand how God saw jealousy, and be healed.  Things can heal, but you always have your part. 

Hope this helps someone.  God bless you, always come from a place of repentance, and a turning away of any sin, so you can have Gods love rest on you.  

So jealousy can depart.
