I loved this thought, that came from dear Mr. Cruz.  Yes, I admire this man greatly.  He is a man of great integrity, conviction, and stands for that which is right.  I admire him, because he stands his ground.  He is not a people pleaser.  He is I believe a man who wants to please God.  He knows who he is by his integrity.  This is why I am sad, he is not our nominee.  

But that thought of his is the talk of today.  And it causes us all to think.  So why? What does that mean, to vote your conscience?

I love getting to the root of things.  Thats always been my nature, to understand.  Why people, say what they do?  What is the foundation of something said.  The root, determines far more then what may be implied in anything.  Because it reveals the very soul of someone.  Don’t scratch the surface, get to the root of it!  Why waste your time, pondering?  Go to the top, the wisdom that God gives.  Does it come from God or satan?  You can know if you truly seek God.  If you read holy word.  

Christ told us, that we would be known by the words we speak.  We would be judged by those same words.  And out of the abundance of the heart, we do speak.  Scripture (paraphrasing) tells us we have power of life and death in our tongues, and we eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21. That last scripture is enough to give pause to consider what we do say.  

I think Mr. Cruz thought about what he should say.  He knew he had if anything to prove to himself, and God, he had a responsibility as a leader to tell us how to vote.  By the conscience.

The conscience.  The sense, these are principles, principles God has given us to establish to know the difference.  To guide us, to give us wisdom.  To give discernment between good and evil.

So to vote your conscience.  Hmmm.  Lets get to the root of that.  Without actually endorsing anyone, without saying anything further about someones character, or the lack of it.  

To get to the root of it, you need to look at the fruit.  To look at the soul of someone.  You have to see, what someones words are based on.  Is it truth?  Or is it a lie?  How did they get to the foundation they have?  Is it based on God, or is it on satan?  Is it love or is it hate?  Is it good, or is it evil?

You see, thats just the way it is going to be.  Its not in-between, or at a half way mark. With God, its choose this day, whom you will serve.  God does not play games with us.  He tells us to choose whom we will serve.

I CALL HEAVEN AND EARTH TO RECORD THIS DAY AGAINST YOU, THAT I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING, THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE, THAT BOTH THOU AND THY SEED MAY LIVE.  DEUTERONOMY 30:19 KJV.  

And whether you want to choose or not, is really irrelevant, because by not choosing, you can choose evil.  By not standing up for good, by being lukewarm, so to speak, God will spit you out.  See Christ’s last words to us, in Revelation 3. Of a KJV. Because even in these scriptures he is reminding us, yes, salvation could be at stake by not repenting. He tells us let no man take your crown!

Repentance, is always the key to clearing the slate with God.  Always, don’t ever forget that!  It will clear your conscience.  It will clear your soul, it will make you right with God.  Repentance is admitting you have sinned, that you have made mistakes, by not basing your “conscience” your soul on Christ.  It is the sweetest cleansing, you ever can receive, because it will clear the slate, and clean your robes.

See, God is giving us all a chance on this earth to choose.  And so you have to know what your “conscience” is based on.  You have to know what source, as the foundation, does your thoughts come from to vote.

Is it good, is it truth, is it love, is it pure, and holy, submitting totally to God?  In obedience, in fear of God.  Yes, fear, people don’t like that word, but see, if you fear God, you choose wisely.  So your conscience, does not fear anybody else, but God Himself, to prove to Him, your own alliance.  To please God. 

The conscience.  That little voice, that gut instinct, that sense you might call common sense, is always based on good or evil.  God or the devil.  And to know that, is to learn to fine tune it.  You can always trust it, if its based on God. 

It tells you what is right, it tells you what is wrong.  But if the foundation of it, is not based on God totally, well it will be wrong.  But the principle is in its place.  If you have not made Christ Lord, and savior, you will be ruled by the principle, that comes from the devil.  Theres no in-between here again.

Thats why I am so careful with the Bible I choose.  I choose the King James. To choose something, that has not been corrupted, or compromised, because I truly want to be on the same page with God.  He does not change, we do.  So my thoughts, will reflect the mind of Christ.  According to His word.  Not my thoughts, not satans thoughts.  But God almighty.

But it is a choice.  So, to vote your conscience, is a choice.  This is America.  Beautiful America, the land of the free.  But how long will that be, if we do not choose Gods ways?  We may very well learn.  This is who we are as a nation.  Free. We have freedom, our whole nation is on the foundation of freedom, but in God we trust.  

Some of us trust in God anyway.

So only you can answer the question as to where your “conscience” is based on.  Only you, can determine, to know if you are right are wrong, but remember, you will be judged by what you choose.

We will all stand before God.  For the choices we make, including how we vote.  It is recorded in the book of life.  But ask yourself, is your name in the Lambs book of life?  That book, that has no stain on it.  Cleansed by the sacrifice of Christ.  

Without telling you who to vote for, to vote your conscience, means you are voting because you have freedom.  But remember, that freedom, in our nation, will produce, fruit.  It will produce a consequence.  Either for good or evil.  God or satan.

So be careful how you vote.  Be careful what you base it on.  Be careful, that you see the root of someones character, to know, is it good, is it evil?

I think we have seen enough to know.  At this point.  But if you do not know, ask God.  Come to His throne humble.  Repentant.  Seeking truth.  He will show you.  He is awesome when it comes to things like that, so He deserves glory and honor and praise as I even write this.  I know.  There is none like God, and sometimes, you wonder.  But He is on the throne.  No matter who is President.  

The rest is up to you, and yes God, for it is always in His hands.  Who is your choice to vote for?  It may mean you don’t vote.  And thats another topic, between good and evil, and evil is still evil.  And good is still good.  Thanks be to God. 

Remember God sees your vote.  What is your conscience based on?  As you vote?  Or do not vote?  Your an American, know the difference! 

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

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

God is jealous for your soul.  He created you, in His image, and so when any of us, get off course, and we do not realize the error of our ways, He sees with jealousy!

I have seen in my own journey of life, where God has prompted to correct me here and there.  But He has done it sometimes in jealousy….

He is such a gentleman, to me, but He has been known to teach me some hard lessons in life.

It grieves me, that sometimes, I have not had good judgment.  It grieves me, that I made Father jealous.

I did not do it intentionally, but stupidly, being naive, being foolish, about not knowing His ways, His truth….For life.  For He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Oh how I love my King James Bible.  For there, I hear His voice.  There I know the content is not corrupted, there, I find truth.  His commandments.  Not someone else’s voice, that would make Him jealous…

I remember one time, I got Father jealous, because of my fascination with angels.  I had been collecting figurines of them.  One time, I went to a good will store, and I found one, and she had a lantern, so I bought it.

That same night, I dreamt of her.  She came alive.  She was evil, and she was trying to steal my soul, the light of who Christ was.  Her lantern was symbolic, to taking my light, and putting it in that lantern.  I woke up, terrified.

And I immediately opened my bible.  This scripture was immediately in view.

THOU SHALT HAVE NONE OTHER GODS BEFORE ME.  THOU SHALT NOT MAKE THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATERS BENEATH THE EARTH.  THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF UNTO THEM, NOR SERVE THEM, FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN UNTO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME.  AND SHOWING MERCY UNTO THOUSANDS OF THEM THAT LOVE ME AND KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.  DEUTERONOMY 4:7-10.

I repented.  I broke it, and smashed it into tiny little pieces.  There was something attached to it, in the spirit, that I did not want even anybody else to have.  So I broke it, and threw it in the trash.  It was a lesson, I will never forget.

You see, God saw my fascination, but even as a child, He was teaching me not to have any idolatry, before Him.  For as a child, I asked my mother, when we went to mass, why did the people bow down to the statues?  She had been teaching me the ten commandments, so I knew.  We went to different churches, so I know the difference.  

But here I was caught up in the spirit of just collecting, but it offended God.

So I am always careful now, to stop and see, what I like, what I give attention to, and why?  Even people…  Does it become idolatry?

You see, I don’t want to offend God.  I know He is jealous.  That scripture says he will visit the iniquity of the fathers, upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

Generational curses, one wonders, so I want the slate clean…..

Idolatry, can also come in the form, of loving one self.  Did you know that?  Remember the devil was an angel of light, who disguised himself.  He can come into position by showing himself as beautiful.  But behind his spirit, that ugly spirit will show up, as pride, and as conceited.  He was jealous of God, but God won that fight and kicked Him out of heaven.  

God does not share His glory with anyone.  So it is wise, to watch out for anything that becomes idolatry, or that tries to take the place of our relationship with our Lord and savior.  Because He is jealous…

I have learned lessons in that as well, though it is hard for me to articulate into words, I pray, not to give myself that attention, in these kind of matters. For it can turn into vanity.

I just want to please God.  I just want His peace, in my life.  I just want answers to prayer, and I do not want anything in my life, that is sin, that would take priority, or hinder my prayers.  I want His protection.  I just love His presence….

I want to see Him glorified, though, because of all of this. I want Him to know, and the world…so I speak it.  I don’t want to make Him jealous.  And I want for Him to receive any glory, or honor, or prestige, concerning anything, I prosper in. Because if you think about it, our lives are in His hand.  Our health, our wealth, our blessings…..small and large.  

It takes deliberate thought, to make sure when I come before Him, even in prayer, that I know, that I know who I am talking to.

He is the King of Kings, He is the Lord of Lords.  He is the healer, the provider, the creator of Heaven and earth, and so much more.  I do not want to make him jealous, by giving someone, or anything more priority then I do him.

So I want to be careful.  Do you think about that?  Are you aware He is jealous for your soul?  Food for thought, I pray this blesses you…

In Christ, Elena Ramirez

Wow, not an easy, feel good, soft and fuzzy title.  But I write them as the Lord gives them to me.

So why is the Lord using me, to write about something so strong?  That one could take offense to it.  Or it could open someones eyes.  Just the word “whore”, is vulgar, if you think about it.  

But it is biblical to talk about.  And this applies to men and women.  And even in other situations, besides adultery.  So here goes…

I WILL DO THESE THINGS UNTO THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST GONE A WHORING AFTER THE HEATHEN AND BECAUSE THOU ART POLLUTED WITH THEIR IDOLS.  EZEKIEL 23:30  KING JAMES.  

LEST THOU MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND, AND THEY GO A WHORING AFTER THEIR GODS, AND DO SACRIFICE UNTO THEIR GODS, AND ONE CALL THEE, AND THOU EAT OF HIS SACRIFICE.  EXODUS 34:15.  KING JAMES.  

AND THE SOUL THAT TURNETH AFTER SUCH AS HAVE FAMILIAR SPIRITS, AND AFTER WIZARDS, TO GO A WHORING AFTER THEM, I WILL EVEN SET MY FACE AGAINST THAT SOUL, AND WILL CUT HIM OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  LEVITICUS 20:6.  KING JAMES

So, one has to recognize it is a spirit.  And before it even manifests itself though, it can be taken to the cross, in repentance.  Before anything happens.  And I guess, thats what I want to warn you about.  I want you to recognize it, before, so you can avoid it.  So you can rebuke the whoring, adulterous spirit.  But only in the name of Jesus, can you find the power to do that.

I don’t want to judge anybody.  I have taken my own sins, to the cross, and prayed for forgiveness.  And even now, when I think about some of my own stupid sins, I still repent.

But, I do feel an obligation to write this, because there is a whorish, adulterous spirit, that can even come on the best, intending Christians.  Let alone, someone, who is naive, and does not know Gods truth.

Sin, its meant to kill, steal, destroy.  Its meant to stop your blessings.  Its meant to steal the promises from God from you.

Because if one sins, and does not repent, the enemy, has a “legal” right to harass you.  To steal your salvation.  To deceive you.  

I see messages, sometimes, that state grace, will make a way, when there is sin.  But they do not add, that inbetween, sin, and grace, there has to be repentance.  I don’t see it taught.  Maybe it is.

Anyway, we live in a very adulterous world.  Women, and men, showing their bodies, with no modesty, and what does this teach women, and men?  What does it teach our young girls?  Where is the outcry to say, cover yourselves up….don’t give it all away.  Leave the mystery.  But our society does not teach these things.  Just turn your television on, and you see it.

Respect yourself.  Because if you don’t the devil certainly will not.

And seldom, heard, do I hear it from the body of Christ, and Christian leaders.

Temptation comes….and when you most try to avoid it.  It will try anyway. But God says if we are obedient to him, he will not allow a temptation.

THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN;  BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE:  BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.  I Corinthians 10:13 King James only.

Remember Joseph, he ran, when the Pharoahs wife tried to seduce him.

We should run from sin.  We should teach our daughters and sons, the benefits of staying away from sin.  Including sexually transmitted diseases.

Now, just a clue here, but because we all want to be beautiful, smart, and blessed.  But what do we use our beauty for?  Is it to attract a mate?  Is it to show you are better then someone?  

Everything our society seems to point out is the beauty someone has?  But in doing so, they are losing something.  Its innocence.  Its modesty, its self-respect.  

Sometimes when I watch television programs where hollywood, or the music community has award shows.  I look at the womens clothing, and I think, golly, girl, put some clothes on.  You can catch a cold.  To say the least…..

You know what it brings, but a whorish, adulterous spirit.  That leads to sin.

People do not talk about sin hardly any more.  Maybe because we all do sin, according to scripture.  We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But, when you repent, and give your heart to God, you should make sure, you stay away from sin.  So you have to understand the spirits…whether of God, or the devil.  

Because you want your robes of righteousness, clean, when you stand before God.

That is your responsibility too.  We do not have an excuse to sin, when we accept Christ.  We don’t.

I just feel like I am talking to someone, who needs to see this.  You are so tempted right now.  You want to indulge in a whorish, adulterous spirit, and release yourself to someone.  Someone, who may even say they love you.  But if they loved you, they would marry you.  They would make it right before God.  By honoring you.  It would not be adulterous.  

Maybe you have an adulterous sin, just repent.  Ask God to cleanse you of your sins.  Turn from whoring ways.  But see it, before it is too late.  

If you do not honor yourself, no one else will.  You have to see that.

But what you don’t see, is that the devil, is trying to take your blessings, your future, your hopes, even your health away.

Repent for the thought, the desire, the longing, that holds you captive and just turn back to God.

Turn back, don’t go down that road.  It leads straight to hell.  So rebuke that whorish adulterous spirit.  Rebuke it, and get right with God.  Because it leads to other sins as well.  

Rebuke it, in Jesus name.  So your own true love can be revealed to God, and others.

KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?  BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATORS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND.   NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.  AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD.    I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 KING JAMES.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

I probably, could write a book on this.  Rebuking.  I have done enough fighting in my lifetime, physical and spiritual to know the tactics of the enemy.  

And the many ways, we should learn to rebuke.  

But, I will for now, just reserve that thought, until I get a prompting from God, or even my readers.  Because I will not move until God gives me direction.  I will not cast my pearls to swine,  and I will not do something this great, without the anointing.  I need to see the favor.  I need to see, the plan of God, directing me, or even someone to give me a book deal.  I need to see the anointing.  

So I rebuke, the obstacles that get in the way of that, even here.

And I guess that leads me to write this, because so many of us as Christians, do not realize the authority, we have in rebuking.  And I see it so clear lately.  

We need to learn…But we need to teach ourselves, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

We can get lost, in our own battles, in our own way of thinking.  If we do not utilize Christ as the way, the truth, and life.

Jesus did it.  He rebuked.

AND JESUS REBUKED THE DEVIL: AND HE DEPARTED OUT OF HIM: AND THE CHILD WAS CURED FROM THAT VERY HOUR. Matthew 17:18 King James

And he taught us, that we have an authority in Jesus name.  We have power from heaven above to speak things, into the natural atmosphere, but also into the supernatural atmosphere.

We can rebuke people, thoughts, and it just reminds me, that we do not always battle against flesh, and blood, but authorities in high places.  But the enemy uses people.  So rebuke someone, when it does not line up with the Holy word of God.  I do more then ever! Courage….

But I briefly, want to touch on rebuking in our minds.  You see the battle is in the mind.  What you think is usually the outcome.  And there is some negative thinking out there.  Again, I remind you from a few previous posts, I wrote even here, beware of subliminal messages.  They are all over.  That try to inundate you, to make you feel powerless.  People get some junk out there, and they think its true.  

But does it line up with the Holy word, of a King James bible?

When you have battles in the mind, doubt creeps in.  Fear comes in, IF you let it.  Do you see that key word… “IF”?

Aren’t you tired of being sick and tired?  Not seeing any progress.  I am no longer going to be tired, I am going to do something about it, even if it is just in my mind.  I am not going to give into defeat.  I am not going to NOT believe, so I can make  progress.  

I am not going to believe reports.  If my Bible says otherwise.   I am not.  My bible says, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, and I believe it.  

I KNOW THAT I KNOW WHO GOD IS, AND I REBUKE THE DEVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AND BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS I PLEAD!

You have to take captive these thoughts, whatever they may be.  You must bring them to the obedience of Christ.  You must if you want a victory…..

Get the mind of Christ….Not the worlds.  Not another Christian leader, not some pawn of the enemy.  Get the mind of Christ.  But you have to go for it, discipline yourself, and stop being lazy.  

I have faith, in God, truth is, I have not always have had faith in me.  But the beginning is knowing who He is.  Knowing He is not mocked.  How just a little doubt can make you go without.  So I rebuke, doubt.  

I rebuke anything that tries to overwhelm me in my thinking.  I rebuke it.  I kick it away, like a tin can, and say, with the power of God, that tells me I can remove mountains be gone!  This gives me confidence, because greater is He that is in me, then he that is in the world.  

I am not going to give you a books worth of thought, but a seed here.  Which again, may grow into a book.  We will see…

But be mindful of your thoughts.  Be mindful to claim holy King James word.  Be mindful of your words, that stop the progress.  Be mindful of how you treat people.  Or even God….He is not mocked.  He hates pride, but lifts up the humble.  So be careful how you rebuke.  Be careful love is in it….Love of God first!

Be mindful, to obey God, in your prayer, by knowing how to rebuke, remember, Christ told us, whatsoever we bind on earth, will be bound.  Whatsoever we release in his name, will be released.  When you are in that state of sadness, depression, defeat, whatever, rebuke it! 

In the name of Jesus.  

Start taking your authority.  Be bold, be courageous, don’t wimp out!  Don’t have a pity party!  Pick yourself up by your boot straps, put on your armor of God, and rebuke in the name of Jesus!  LEARN!

I humbly admit, I don’t know it all…but I know who God is.  And I know, He can teach me, He has.  But you have to want to learn.  Stop walking around like a zombie.  Stop, just accepting defeat, as the way.  Its not the way of Christ…..

You have an assignment, look up King James scriptures on the word REBUKE.  And then meditate on them, memorize them, gain strength, hide them in your heart for the time you need them…..

 

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO SATAN, THE LORD REBUKE THEE, O SATAN, EVEN THE LORD THAT HATH CHOSEN JERUSALEM REBUKE THEE;  IS NOT THIS A BRAND PLUCKED OUT OF THE FIRE?  ZECHARIAH 3:2 KING JAMES.  

PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON, OUT OF SEASON, REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE.  II TIMOTHY 4:2 KING JAMES.

AND DAVID WENT OUT TO MEET THEM, AND ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, IF YE BE COME PEACEABLY UNTO ME TO HELP ME, MINE HEART SHALL BE KNIT UNTO YOU:  BUT IF YE BE COME TO BETRAY ME TO MINE ENEMIES, SEEING THERE IS NO WRONG IN MINE HANDS, THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS LOOK THEREON, AND REBUKE IT.  I CHRONICLES 12:17.  KING JAMES

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

I know, I have written a few things on forgiveness, but I want to take this in a different direction.  And that is learning to release someone in forgiveness, by telling them so.

Have you ever apologized to someone, and you know you made a mistake, and so you apologized, but they did not acknowledge your apology?  They ignored you, or remained silent.  Or still continued blaming you in unforgiveness?

This has happened to me a lot.  And many times, I just walked away sad, because what I really wanted to hear, was I do forgive you.

I learned, to say, I was sorry, at a very, very early age.  I had a strict mom, and I wanted to please her.  Now, I was not a model child by any means.  And I still am not.  Even as a child of God. I make mistakes.  In judgment, I do often in fact.  I pray not to do so, but sometimes, well, I do.  

I pray, God guide me in this, but one thing I have learned, is not to carry any kind of guilt, or condemnation, from myself, or others, or even from God.  So I repent first to God.  Then I apologize to others.  I humble myself, even sometimes, when I am right.  But…

If it does not feel right, I know, as an unction from God to release it.

But there are people, I love, people I admire, people I respect, that may not see it the same way as I do.  

And so what can I do?  But just pray for them myself.

You see, I believe there is a power, in releasing someone in forgiveness.  It takes away pride.  It takes away, any kind of self control in the matter, that can be manipulative, to have someone indebted to you.  I know where that spirit comes, and I get right to the root of it.  It comes from the devil.  

I do not want to be indebted to the enemy in any way.  In even a legal way, where he can accuse me or, try to take my blessings.  I don’t want to be indebted to anyone, nor to myself, in the sense, I want to carry a grudge.  Because if you do not release someone in forgiveness, you will carry a grudge.  

You have not taken the final step, to release that person, from that offense, so you will ponder on it, and you may grow a seed of hate.

How naive we all can be.  By not forgiving someone, or releasing them in forgiveness we have to know what scripture says, and God says if we do not forgive our brother, our friend, etc.  He will not forgive us.  

MATTHEW 6:15 BUT IF YE FORGIVE NOT MEN THEIR TRESPASSES, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES.  

I don’t want that.  I don’t want that hanging over me.  Its strange, but lately, for whatever reason God has been showing me this….  I have been thinking, or dreaming of people.  I have known in the past.  Those that were even family, or friends, that are no longer friends.  They are not in my life.  And I just have had a sense, God was trying to get me to repent, and to forgive them.  So I have.  I may not have thought, I had not forgiven them.  But you know God knows our hearts better then we do. Now, I cannot contact them, but God knows.  

But, I think we can close the circle, when we have a chance. When we have a chance to ask someone to forgive us, or to even find a person, and say…..I forgive you.  Or say.  I am sorry.  

But I really want to impress upon you, to release them by telling them you forgive them.  As they apologize.  And we all know…

More times, people do not apologize.  Even if they don’t ask for it.  Tell them you forgive them.  Why?  Because you don’t want that garbage in you.  That can grow into hate.  Maybe somehow you will remind them, that this is what God wants for us all.  

What a release, it is.  What power, you feel from heaven, above.  A cleansing.  I cannot explain it.  I don’t know all the benefits of it.  But I look at it as someone who was in chains, and now no longer in chains.

And in order to keep those chains off, I keep forgiving.  I keep asking for forgiveness.  From God and others.  In fact I do this daily, because I still make mistakes.  

You see, I actually do care, and I do want to be accountable to God.  To others.  I want to work out my salvation, clear of unforgiveness.  

I think of how many times, an apology would have blessed me, comforted me, soothed me, and even proved love.  And when I did not get it, a wound, may be healed.  Because I know what God says….

But it is always tender to the touch.  I have enough scars about me, to know this to be true.  So grateful for the armor of God, to quench the fiery darts, even when I am not released in forgiveness.  

I hope this blesses you, much Love, Elena Ramirez

When I was a small child, Christmas meant I had a lot of presents under the tree. That Santa would see I was a good girl and come and bring me lots of presents. Now all I want more then ever is that the sweet spirit of Christmas to bring me the true meaning of who Christ is. You can’t find that under your tree but in your heart…in times of poverty or times of abundance. Christ is the gift that keeps on giving. I have learned. His presence is the present… I wrote this about the Christmas spirit. I hope it blesses you… ❤

So your not feeling the Christmas Spirit?  You feel kind of BAH-HUMBUG.  Bah humbug, see that word (bah hum bug), you gotta quit letting things bug you.  So lets start there.

You see, God our King, our Lord, Jesus came to save us all, and HE understands, our sorrows, our pain, our needs.  But you cannot see Him work in your life, unless you allow Him, into your heart.  In every part of your heart.  Not just part of it.  

You know how you catch a cold, its a virus.  Well, that bug, of bah humbug, is a virus to your spirit.  It wants you to feel bad.  It wants you to deny Christ.  So watch that.  

So what do you do when you catch a cold? You concentrate on getting better, you take precautions, and nurture your body.  Well you have to do that with your spirit.  To get into the Christmas spirit…

For it is your responsibility to stir up that spirit.  Lets talk about spirits for a second.  There is that invisible feeling, that is within you, whether it is happiness, sadness, poverty, or even infirmity, which is called sickness, that can make you sick.  These are spirits.

There are spirits, that come from God Himself, and then there are spirits, that come from hell itself.  And you have to identify which is from God, and from the devil.  And when you do, then you can see the beauty of Christmas.  

And you need to know how to control it, and you need to know how to tap into the Holy Spirit of God Himself.  And only God can control it, so this is where submission to God comes from.  Total surrendering….to joy. 

Joy, the joy of the Lord, is our strength.  Nehemiah 8:10.  King James.

To be healed, spiritually, to feel that joy.

But when you are not letting God do a good thing, by even stirring up your hope, your joy, your child like thoughts of Christmas, you are allowing the enemy to steal your joy, that comes from the Holy Spirit.  You do have to see that.  

You have to know who God is, and then you have to know who you are in Christ.  By the Holy Spirit….

This is the first step in a line of other steps but very important.  So please note this:

If you are not a Christian, or if you are a Christian, who has sinned, you need to repent.  And sometimes we don’t even know we have sinned.  But God knows, and His spirit will not be there.  So thats a good place to start.

Repent, this is the very first thing, you must do…..Rededicate yourself to Christ.  Accept Christ into your heart.  Remember what He did on the cross for you.  For this truly is the very, main reason why God sent Him.

Go to God, tell Him, your not feeling the Christmas spirit, ask Him to forgive you.  Ask Him to show you the true meaning of Christmas.  In any way, that He wants too. And then conclude to be obedient.  Knowing why Christmas is so important.  

And the reason that is because Jesus is the reason for the season.  For God so loved the world, that He gave and sent His only begotten son.  (paraphrasing John 3:16.  King James)

Think about that.  God loves us, and sent Christ to save us so we have to sometimes, just identify that, and know how great His love is.  To know what Christmas is really about…

So here are some tips, that I sense the Holy Spirit is bringing to my attention just to stir up that, after you have come to the throne of God, and made it right with God, in your salvation to remind you, on your part, how to stir up Christmas:

  1.  Start by being thankful for what you have.  Friends, family, home, health, protection, your great country…any blessing you can think of, and cannot think of.  Things you may have avoided, or did not know about, but God knew and spared you.  And just let that child like thankfulness “spirit” enter your heart.

  2. Start giving to someone anyone.  Think about someone else, to bless.  In any way you can.  Even out of the ordinary,  Impulsively…Buy someone a gift, a cup of coffee, a homeless person, and just let that spirit of giving remind you, of Gods love, that He gave us.  Give to someone, that you know can never repay you.  But God will….

  3. Remember, to rebuke any negative feelings.  Doubt, anger, sadness, even your feeling of poverty, and remind yourself, at this time of Christmas, the miracle of Christmas.  Think of the angels.  Think of the goodness of God, that God sent angels to go to Mary, and to tell her, she would be the mother of Christ.  Think of all the possibilities.  Remember God said, all things are possible with Him.  FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE.  LUKE 2:37 

  4. Think of Christ and all of the miracles, He did.  As He walked in this life, and the promises He made.  And feel the true spirit of who Christ is.  

  5. Ponder on the miracle of Christmas because of who Christ is. Think of the nativity.  Think of when the three wisemen came, to seek Him, and they followed that star, and the quietness, and beauty of a silent night.  Think of the gifts they brought to bless the King, and then bless God, with your spirit of believing and giving.  QUIET YOUR SPIRIT TO HEAR FROM GOD.  

  6. Be careful and rebuke the Pharisee spirit, the spirit, that doubts, and look at things religiously.  Or that puts down the meaning of Christmas.  That spirit, that will even take a scripture, and try to put down even putting up a Christmas tree.  Or making a mockery of it, by the commercialization.  This really is sin, to deny what Christ came for.  To deny Christmas or to hate it.  So be careful of people who do not see it your way.  Some people are toxic.  You may even think of blessing them.  But if you cannot be near them, or they will spit on that sweet spirit, get away from them.  Bless them but get away.  

  7. Think of love…for truly Christmas is love.  If there is hate, or unforgiveness, again repent, but release it.  Let it flow away from you, and just be willing to see the good in people.  Even mean people, just remember what Christ did for you. 

  8. Ponder on the true holy word.  Get a good King James bible, and look up the nativity.  (Luke 2) Read it to your family, on Christmas eve, or even now, and let the spirit of truth, and Gods love bless you by His Holy word.  This is very important because of the holiness of word.  You want holy, anointed scripture that is not corrupted.  By the changing of words.  PRAY WITH YOUR FAMILY.  BRING CHRIST INTO YOUR HOME.  

  9. Get good Christmas music, and listen to it.  Sing with it.  Dance to it.  

  10. Guard your heart…To give God glory.  Think about how, and any way you can acknowledge who God is, and speak or do anything that will give God glory.  For it will rebuke the enemy.  The enemy of God, who does not want to give God glory.  Be very careful with this. 

  11. Go to a church where the Christmas story is being told.  With the intention of seeing God, or seeing, some kind of sign from God.  

  12. Expect miracles, expect and believe, you see Christmas is about believing, and only you can stir up your heart, to believe.  But this is faith, and faith begins when you pray, and just conclude, not to rationalize, or to analyze Christmas or anything but God.  But to obey.  To obey God, means you are allowing His spirit, in your heart.  Then you will have Christmas.  See it like a child….but be careful to not put anything besides Christs birth as the meaning….

These are just some tips, I am sharing, by the Holy Spirit, but truly only God can touch your heart, to know any of these things.  As you have your part in just being mindful of these things, God will do His part.  

Your Christmas can be merry my friends.  I sense some of you are so hurt, so angry, so cold, and even hateful, of this time of the season.  You may be alone.  You may have terrible memories of this time.  You may have hard, times, that seem unbearable in every way.  But remember, Christ came to save, us, but to also heal us. Isaiah 53:5.( see it from a King James) That healing can also be our spirits.  And nothing is impossible again, with God.  Let that be your hope.  

To conclude this:  Work on your relationship with Christ every day of the year.  This is not a religion, this is relationship we all have to work on with our Lord.  But you will find if you do this, the Holy spirit of Christmas will come to you much easier, it will flow.  Love, never fails.  

Merry Christmas….To all, and to God be the glory, peace, on earth good will toward all.  May the sweet Spirit of Christmas be yours, if all you have is this scripture……God will be with you.  

Invite me to your church function, ladies group, or church seminar to speak at your event……

Much love, Elena Ramirez

Don’t undermine someones pain or sorrow.  I tell myself this as well, because I have learned to put on my own armor, when I see, or sense pain or sorrow in myself, and others.

I have to keep my armor on.  Or I would fall apart.  I would not be effective for the Kingdom of God.  I cannot walk in my way, but the way of Christ.  So no song of self-righteousness, will make me stronger.  But the righteousness of Christ.  Not my self-righteousness.

So when I see people with no compassion.  No understanding, no comprehension of someones pain.  Including their own.  I wonder why they react the way they do.  

No one, understands our own pain, more then Christ, since He suffered for our sins.  For He was compassionate, He was love, He was truth, He was a Physician, He was so much more, that we have to use as an example.  

But we have to go to Christ.  I know I do….and I do.  

When I sense silence, or no offering of compassion, to those that are hurting.  Or if I see someone being mean spirited, I wonder why is there no sense of compassion?

You see, we never know, why people are the way they are.  What contributed to their coldness, or their passiveness, or even their own mean spirit.  So many times, you see people who are rude, or mean, but they don’t know how to give it to Christ.  In fact, many that are that way, deny God.  So when people deny the only true source for healing, they use others as a scapegoat for their pain.  

They get self-centered, selfish, and prideful.  And you have to look real close, or you will not have compassion for that miserable soul.  

I don’t often share my own pain, or sorrow, because I have learned to give it to God.  I have found people don’t always know how to react to others pain.  Or how to console.

Yet, there are things that it just does not seem as if they will heal in my own life, until I stand before God.  So I sometimes hide my pain, or saddness.  

And all I know, is that, I cannot lose my sense of who God is, amidst the pain I sometimes feel, and let that control me.  I cannot.

But it does make me look at people through eyes, that have hurt, to give someone compassion.  Sweet kind, and beautiful compassion.

Compassion, that is love.  That Christ told us to give to one another.  Even our enemies.  How wise our Lord is.  How everything connects, when we use love.  How it solves problems, heals wounds, and brings peace.  It is a commandment.

So as I write about this, please think about how you deal with people.  Maybe you have reason to be angry with someone.  Maybe someone has hurt you deeply.  Maybe, though, if you tried to understand, what molded them to be that way, you can release your own forgiveness, with compassion, to not react with an eye for an eye to them.  Maybe you can stop someone from doing mean, or evil, because you are compassionate.  

God only knows why people are the way they are.  But I have learned, on my own.  I don’t have to embrace that kind of spirit, to grow.  To grow in Christ means, I have love, for others, and myself, to not get caught up in things.  

I just pray, for those who are grieving, angry, or hurt.  Maybe you will have this pain, or sorrow, that I understand, that does not seem to go away.  But I pray, you are always comforted with love.

I never want to undermine your pain.  But don’t undermine my pain either.  

And why I search for God so much.  Unless you have walked in my shoes, or I in yours, all we can do is comfort each other.   But to be mean, and to devalue your pain, or mine, is not productive.  What produces fruit in our lives.  Is love….with compassion.  

WHO CAN HAVE COMPASSION ON THE IGNORANT, AND ON THEM THAT ARE OUT OF THE WAY, FOR THAT HE HIMSELF ALSO IS COMPASSED WITH INFIRMITY.  HEBREWS 5:2 KING JAMES.   

FINALLY BE YE ALL OF ONE MIND, HAVING COMPASSION ONE OF ANOTHER, LOVE AS BRETHREN, BE PITIFUL BE COURTEOUS.  

MARK 1:41. KJV.  

AND OF SOME HAVE COMPASSION, MAKING A DIFFERENCE.  

JUDE 1:22.  KJV. 

Just my thoughts, 

Elena Ramirez
