From the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth. And even with a question. Which brings doubt.
NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN? GENESIS 3:1 King James.
See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.
The battle will be in the mind. We will be tossed to and fro.
THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. EPHESIANS 4:14. KJV.
See how that scripture talks about doctrine?
We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit. From that tree. And she gave the right answer. But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.
AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE. FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL. GENESIS 3:5 KJV.
What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.
And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil? Because He loves us that much. So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses. That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God.
So we have to be aware of the enemies antics. We have to remember when we doubt. When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous. Thats actually stupid. So I don’t challenge what God says. I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it. That gives me hope. That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth. But Gods truth, will never let me down.
SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH: THY WORD IS TRUTH. JOHN 17:17 KJV.
What does God really say? This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.
Because they do make one question what God really says. But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.
I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings. Of corrupt Bibles. Since, I use a KJV. I don’t get that confusion. Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James. Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying.
Eve did not obey. Adam did not obey. But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better. We do not have to question it. But…by obedience. Thats showing God we are obeying. Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.
If you are in that battle of the mind. In anything, go to God. Rebuke the devil. Thats a spirit of confusion. And God is not the author of confusion.
FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS. I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.
I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.
But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.
Always ask God. Always. In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate. So I can know…..
Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.
When I write these posts “Just My Thoughts” or anything I write I usually do it with the goal to help someone, including myself. Writing is an outlet, a way to express myself, that sometimes I am at a loss of words to speak.
But when I write, I usually write from experience. I mean who wants to listen to someone who does not understand, really what is happening, or who wants to listen to someone who may not even have the experience in some matters. I do have that understanding in anger.
After all, I am a warrior. In many ways, I fight. I fight, for what is right, and I fight for survival. I fight, if I have to fight. But in that I have also seen anger rise up in me. I have seen a side of me, that has lost control. And actually that is not a very pretty sight for anybody. Because one can say, or do things, that are irreversible. One can make some mistakes, that after the fact, will show no self-control. And regret.
Regret, is a terrible thing to have, even if you feel God forgives you. Even if someone else forgives you. Because if you have no self-control. You see yourself, the error of not having self-control, and it will grieve you. I have been grieved.
And you need self-control. You need to let the peace of God really rule your heart. You cannot have that without Jesus. Seriously.
I understand this. I understand the anger in me any way. I may not understand your anger. But I understand, how hurt, pain, sorrow, no resolution to issues, can affect your spirit. In anger. Anger if not checked, can grow, and fester into a fire, that becomes out of control.
So you need to know yourself. But more then anything you need to know Jesus. You need to know what He says about anger, and you need to know if you do not fix this even at a moment like this, where you are maybe at some peace, but you recognize the characteristic in you. It could get out of control. You want to be able to see it, stop it even now, and prevent anger.
The thing with anger, and I have seen that in myself, is that something very trivial can set it off. Spilled milk. Seriously, self control has to see the symptoms, to stop it. To give it to God.
Yesterday, I was angry, for a moment. Frustrated, and I cried out to God. Please help me. Because I have been dealing with something that has made me angry, for a very long time. But I have been hiding it. And yes, I have been dealing with it, but it could have gotten very out of control yesterday, but it did not. I thank God.
I do not want it to be expressed in anger. I want it to be expressed knowing God has an answer. That peace, will rule my heart. That I have control, because of who Christ is in me. Just that cry out to God, helped me. Because I realized, I need Him. I surrendered myself to Him. To His authority, to His ways. To His truth, and love. And the anger passed. And to His glory, something happened, I got hope in this matter.
I want to encourage you. Because I know who Christ is. And there is nothing too big, or too small for Him to handle. He wants to help you. But you have to let go of that pride, or anger, or self-will that says, I don’t need Him in this. You do. Believe me, you do. We all need Him. I don’t care who you think you are. Those attributes you may have, or those characteristics that have been a part of any kind of success, you may have, can be gone. So you need God.
He is the only one who can change our hearts, our minds, our souls, our spirits. Whatever it is friend, He can resolve it for you. It may not even be in your time, but if you do your part, to begin the process, you will see the progress. HE sees us, HE knows we need Him. But we have to do the calling on Him. He is the King of Kings, and Lord, of Lords. He has the ability, we just have to submit to Him.
I hope this helps someone. I truly believe the Lord has me writing this for someone, who is so on the verge of exploding, that the consequences could be detrimental to your health, to your well being, to someone you love, or even your career. Don’t let the devil have his way in this.
Yes, we are all entitled to be angry, now and then, but in that anger, be careful it does not turn into sin. Or you go to sleep with anger, there are reasons why God warns us not to do that.
BE YE ANGRY AND SIN NOT: LET NOT THE SUN GO DOWN UPON YOUR WRATH: EPHESIANS 4:26.
Give it to God, even now. Give Him your anger, and sin not. He will help you.
Blessings, and love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez
CHECK OUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG:
Please look at that scripture in the above photo. Look very closely.
When I was growing up, I was warned. In matters of decorum, you don’t talk about politics, and you don’t talk about religion.
Well I threw that adage out the window a long time ago. Because whether people want to agree or not, we need to see whats going on in our country. And we need to talk about it. With each other.
And the strange thing, is that politics are affected by the lack of wisdom, from someone, who does not have fear of God, in such matters. I am not wincing words here. You do not want to be deceived.
I have seen enough in this election, to make me cringe, that Christian leaders who should have wisdom, and understanding of Gods ways, and truth are not supporting it. They are not vocal about it.
And in fact, are doing and saying things, that are the opposite of Gods truth, and are greatly influencing others. They think because they have the forum, and the power, they can say, what they want, and not have any consequences, concerning that. But they forget there is a judgment day for all of us.
Well that kind of endorsing, is wrong thinking on any Christians part. Because we do all have a responsibility to know Gods truth, to know what God says in a matter, and not to align ourselves with someone, who should know better. Or someone who purposely, disregards God, and His truth.
Politics are affected by these matters. Now I don’t like using the word religion, because it always gives a connotation about a group, or a particular ideology. But what I do refer it to, is to my relationship with Christ, that I have from my King James Bible, and prayer. And yes, I look at the fruit of someone in politics. Something Mr. Cruz, early in his campaign told us to look at. That was wisdom. Without, trying to enforce anything on anybody.
Bully tactics, are something, we should look at. And avoid. Because well, it goes totally against who we are as Christians. Christ, has never called us to enforce something on someone. He does not even take His word, and hit us on the head with it. He gives us a choice. Free will. But if we do not choose Him, well we choose wrong.
Many of you may be like me, where you are disappointed, in who some of our Christian leaders are now a days…
You think they should not support or endorse someone who has shown time, and time again, fruit that is not Christ like. To say the least.
Well, its time for you to stand up, where you are, with what you got. Your King James Bible, which is truth, and not corrupted, and stand and make a stand for the Kingdom of God, and yes for your country.
I believe prayer, is something, we need to begin doing more of. Myself included. And to pray repentant. Because more then ever, we are seeing the fruit of this in our country. The sins, that we have allowed, over, and over again. Including abortion. But we do need to pray. For Gods wisdom for our leaders, including those Christian leaders who let us down. And we need to pray, for guidance, from God and yes forgiveness.
But, concerning Christian leaders who have displayed a parting of Gods truth. I briefly want to say, when I feel that way, I am careful not to pray with them, or agree with them. You see, there is an anointing, that flows from the top and makes a covenant with someone in matters. This is why I would choose to have a Godly president, over someone who does not.
So when I see someone who is in the body of Christ choose someone, I don’t agree with, well that red alert or red flag is revealed. Its not that I don’t walk in love. Its not that I would even want to start an argument. Its a matter of choosing sides.
Gods side, and everything He says. Or what the enemy might choose.
You see, loyalty is very important to God. Being right in His sight. Its far more better then voting, against your conscience.
When we choose to align ourselves, even in prayer with someone, we do not agree with, what does that say to God?
Now we must, especially in these times, be careful, who we align ourselves with. We must ask God for wisdom.
I just think its wise, for myself anyway, not to align myself with someone, who has displayed in conversation or support, to someone who has gone against everything Christ has taught us. Either we obey God, or we don’t. Be careful who you pray with, and agree with.
Since, I cannot be a hypocrite, strange I got tested in this matter. And what I have learned, even in this, is pray, people are not deceived. Pray people get the blinders off of their eyes. Because the enemy will use people, even people, who have a form of light, and they are true darkness. Remember the enemy was light. He can transform himself. Pray you are not deceived. Pray for those who are.
Be careful to be prayerful in matters, more then ever for our country. I just feel the Lord prompting me more to work on my own love walk. To avoid strife. To take on Christ more in my communications, and to avoid arguments, that are just meant to be a snare, to my soul.
After hearing another Christian leader give an endorsement, this is my thought:
Plz don’t tell me you cannot judge someone’s heart. After they have spoken evil! Did we forget what Christ taught us? Are we going to let the blind lead us?
I FOLLOW CHRIST NOT MAN!
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Matthew 15:14 KJV
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Luke 6:45 KJV
In conclusion: I just feel led to also remind you to be in prayer for our country more so. To remind you, that you have the ability to be a vessel for the Lord. To work on our love walk. To avoid the spirit of strife that comes from some who really have no sense of truth. Pray for people, but don’t strike up a friendship with, someone who really is friends with strife. Someone, who really just wants to argue. That kind of self confidence, is evil.
Be careful friends, blessings, and love in Christ. May God be glorified, and I believe in miracles. For the United States of America.
MAKE NO FRIENDSHIP WITH AN ANGRY MAN; AND WITH A FURIOUS MAN THOU SHALT NOT GO: LEST THOU LEARN HIS WAYS, AND GET A SNARE TO THY SOUL. BE NOT THOU ONE OF THEM THAT STRIKE HANDS, OR OF THEM THAT ARE SURETIES FOR DEBTS. PROVERBS 22:24:26. KJV.
I base this post on a conversation, I had with someone on social media. Look, there is a misconception about this, and if I can gather lost souls for the Kingdom of God, then Lord use me.
But people are not getting the truth, people are twisting scriptures to justify this, and people have no fear of God, or sense, to stay away from sin, even because of this wrong teaching “once saved is always saved.”
They think grace, will cover it. They think they don’t need the law, to know. Another misconception. Do you really think God flip flopped when He gave the law? Just because Paul talks about not needing the law? He was talking about the law of sin and death. That is the only law we are free from.
See Romans 8:2. KJV. FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
But note how the Psalmist, talks about salvation and the law. It is needed!
I HAVE LONGED FOR THY SALVATION, O LORD: AND THY LAW IS MY DELIGHT. Psalms 119:174.
There have been so many lies spoken, and where the bible they use is even a lie.
There are many scriptures that warn us, THAT ONCE SAVED IS NOT SAVED. Do your own search on words. Search the word “blot” and from a King James, the other versions may not have that reference. A persons name can be blotted out of the lambs book of life. Even in Revelation 22:18-19 it talks about those who change Gods word, will not enter the Kingdom. Look at it!
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.”
Exodus 32:33 KJV
I get weary with those who argue God won’t remove someone’s name from the Lambs Book Of Life. That they think and actually believe they cannot lose their salvation. It’s here folks. I will not argue about Gods holy King James word.
This is why we need just one Holy Bible when we search. To be on the same page with God.
Which many Christians think you are judging them, if you tell them this truth, but you are warning them. Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the “righteous” person. THAT IS A PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE SAVED BUT THEY ARE DECEIVED. Look it up in a King James Bible.
Switch bibles, get a holy anointed King James Bible.
Please look at the scriptures I based this conversation on. They are the true last scriptures Christ gave to warn us. He tells us to be repenting. HE talks about how we received our salvation. But we have grown dull, by not knowing the truth. Many have become neither cold nor hot. He will spit us out! If we don’t get it right! Judgement day is real folks, and we need to get the fear of God, because we all will stand before God. HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL! Get scared, and get the fear of God, because your soul could be lost!
Please get the truth, so you truly can be free in Christ. Repent first, so you can hear the Holy Spirit guide you. Then lead others truly to Christ. But don’t fall for that lie that once saved is always saved. Its not.
‘I know, I was a backslider. And by the grace of God I did not die in those years, I was backslidden. But the only way I got it right was by repenting! And I still repent. I still make mistakes. Which in Gods eyes could be considered sin. Remember His ways are not always our ways. This is scriptural. And I want nothing to do with the enemy. I renounce him, and his deception. Do not be deceived. See the truth. Repent. Renew your vows to Christ. And yes share this. Be a soul winner. For Christ.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
CONVERSATIONS ON ONCE SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED
Yes you are my sister and this is why I warn you in His love. The first thing the Holy Spirit brought to me was to tell you, and others how wrong this teaching is. You have love I see it. But the truth is in His word. Once saved is not always saved. He tells us many will come in His name but they will deceive others with vain words. The wrath of God will be on those who have had no fear of God. This is not taught. We are to fear the one who has power to put our soul in heaven and hell. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. How can that be worked out if one just takes it for granted? That is taking the sacrifice of Christ for granted. His suffering and pain for our sins. NO! Christ told us, many will say Lord, Lord, but HE will say I never knew you. Why? because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. Repentance is the key. Daily repentance even. How many times do we in this world sin? Just by thought or deed. Again I looked at your profile, I saw what Bible you reference. That is not a holy bible. Don’t tell people this! You have love then obey God. Research the KJV scriptures. ASK God to show you. But plz stop misleading people.
“Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
Revelation 3:2-19 KJV
Whats on my mind? Whats my thought for today? Well, I do have a thought, now and then. This morning, I did think about how naive I was growing up. How rebellious I was.
How I wanted what I wanted, and sometimes, you want something, but you don’t know how to go about it, but you do your thing anyway. Wisdom has taught me, at this point of my life, that yes being naive, being ignorant to Gods ways, and His truth, if you ignore, does not benefit you, but hurts you.
God has His ways, His plan for us, but if we don’t know truth, or knowledge, or His “law” which many Christians confuse with the law of sin and death, that we are free from in Christ. They think grace covers it.
We cannot have grace, unless we repent, and are mindful to His truth. We need Gods law. We cannot reach our potential. Those laws, have principles, that bring truth to us, to live, a better life. Even for eternity.
So when I see teachings on not knowing the law, of God, from people. Or some that teach you don’t need to know it. I get that red alert.
All I know, is if I am trying to do my part in every way, I can, according to God, I can come to His throne, reassured, to ask, so if there is a chance, a possibility, a way, a miracle, that I can tap into. Because of who He is. I want it with all my being.
God does not flip flop. He gave that law, and its in the Old Testament.
But we have our part. And with all my being, I just submit to Him. I trust and obey, and that enemy has to flee.
But again, today, I thought, how silent God is, especially when we disregard these truths, and we ignore what He says. Even in the Bible we choose. I have learned the King James is Holy and anointed. The others are not. They are actually corrupted, because they disregard the commandments not to change, add, or delete them.
I want miracles, for me, and for you. But we have our part. I get sad, because so many times, people think you are judging them. But really you are warning them because you love them. Because you love Him. So this is not an argument. This is the beauty of America, and freedom of speech.
Oh well, today, I pray to trust and obey. I pray, He is glorified. I see my beautiful America. And I see this land is precious, because of our forefathers. They gave us the Constitution, they gave us the Bill of Rights.
God gave us Cruz, and America is still missing it. I pray, we wake up. I think of the world and its condition, and I see at least in my thinking, how much Gods true law would benefit us all. Not in any kind of religion, but in His truth as a relationship.
Scripture says, we need the law, or we are cursed. I think if we knew better, we would embrace that law quickly.
BUT THIS PEOPLE WHO KNOWETH NOT THE LAW ARE CURSED. JOHN 7:49. KJV.
Praying in Christ today, I am trusting God. And His law….
