Loyalty, is one of the most beautiful attributes a person can have.  And it is not something that you can abuse, or take for granted.  But it is something that must be nurtured.  It is something, that you have to show every once in a while.  It is something, that always has to be a foundation of who you are.

For loyalty will be dedicated to one source.  There are two choices to pick from in loyalty.  And your heart and yes your soul has to know which one to pick.  You have to be faithful to that source.  You have to know that you know, with all your heart, that your loyalty is worthy.

Those two sources, are either God or the devil.  And even here I renounce satan, and give my allegiance to God.  My loyalty.  To the creator of heaven and earth.  Why do that? Because God needs to hear it Himself now and then.  I need to say it myself to build my foundation.  Of my own identity.

I say it here, I write it here, to establish it in my heart, on good ground.  My heart, is inditing a matter of expression, to give God glory.  And to write about loyalty, to bring understanding to our souls.  For the source of wisdom, that I write from, comes from God Himself.  Because He is loyal.

He is loyal to us.  He is so loyal to us, that He sent His only begotten Son, to die for us.  To save us from our sins.  To save us from the destruction that comes when one is not loyal to Him.  So we must be loyal to God, because He is loyal to us.

When one is loyal to God, you see things in truth.  You see things in His light.  You see love.  You see hope.  You see a way, when there was no way.  You see God, and His power, and might.  You see His truth, and you understand how important it is to be loyal to God, through obedience.  You see how precious the sacrifice was of Christ, and you know, that you know, you must be loyal to God, through everything.

This causes warfare.  Why?  Because the other source that wants to steal your loyalty from God comes from the devil himself.  You must never, ever forget, what has transpired in heaven.  You must never forget how the enemy, comes to kill, steal and destroy, and you must very importantly know, that you must be very, very careful not to be deceived.

Prayer. With the armor of God on.  To quench those fiery darts.  To have the mind of Christ.

You must pray.  You must pray in this warfare, to be wise, to be reminded, how important it is to be loyal to God.

First and foremost.  Remember the warfare in heaven.  Remember the angels, that were thrown out with the devil.  They were loyal to the enemy.  They were not loyal to God.

People, do not see they are tested.  They do not see, that God is testing them, to see who they will align themselves with, in loyalty, while we are given time on this earth.  They do not see, how important it is to be loyal to God.  To choose truth.  To choose holiness, to choose His ways, for He is the way, the truth and life.  John 14:6.

You may love someone, but if your loyalty is not to God, you can be so easily deceived.  You can be so easily swayed to choose wrong.  The enemy uses love, to fool people.  He uses that which God created, to be corrupted, and changed so he can deceive you. Even in Bibles.  This is why I only use a King James.  Because it is preserved for 400 years.  Not corrupted.  I am loyal to God in this matter.  And I take heed to the many scriptures that warn not to use or change His holy word, by adding to it, or deleting it.

And if you are not wise to his antics, of the enemy, or to what God wants, you will be fooled.  You will be deceived.

The warfare that was in heaven is also in your heart.  You need to know, that the enemy, wants to deceive you, even by how you love.  What you choose to love.  Who you choose to love.  From friends, to things, to family, to the spirits, that are deceiving, he wants to confuse you.

Oh it is so important to seek God, in these matters.  For He is the only one that will guide you.  He is the great shepherd.  He will steer you away from things, and people that can hurt you.  He knows that we are like sheep sometimes, just so easily swayed to wander off.  He knows this.  But you have to know this yourself and discipline yourself to please God, to obey Him, to be loyal to Him.  To seek Him.  To listen for His voice and only His voice.  His sheep know His voice, and to another they will not follow.  This is loyalty to God.  Again what bible are you loyal to?  Is it truth, or just a version of truth.  Part truth part lie?

The warfare you experience, is because you have not determined this just yet.  You are tossed to and fro, because you have not totally made God, your Lord and savior.  You are not obedient to His commandments and ways.  You know of Him, but you wander off.  And the danger of that, is that your soul, could be in spiritual danger.  You cannot play with your salvation.  You cannot play with being loyal.  I call it walking on the fence line, because that is how I used to be.  I would walk the fence.  I grew up knowing about Jesus.  I grew up, even giving my heart to Him.  But because I was not disciplined.  Because I wanted things my way.  I walked in the ways of the world, and I hit the bottom, rock bottom.  I was between God and the world.  And their is no in-between with God.  It has to be with Him, or you will lose.

Not until, I began seeing my loyalties were not toward God completely I saw I was in warfare.  I saw my friends, and one friend in particular who I loved dearly, who was not loyal to God.  And if anything, the total opposite of anything God represented.   Don’t tell me friends do not matter, they do.  And their spirits influence you, because you are then linked to them by the spirit, they represent.  And if that spirit is not loyal to God, it will not be loyal to you, and they can be your own down fall.  They can open the door, to curses because you give them the authority to open the doors to things, that can hurt you because your love, your love for them gives them that authority.

I have learned, if someone is not loyal to God, they will not be loyal to me.  I no longer have warfare.  That kind anyway.  I have made up my mind, soul and spirit  If I fight….well thats between me and God.  Because He teaches my hands to battle.  And I obey Him.  

HE TEACHETH MY HANDS TO WAR, SO THAT A BOW OF STEEL IS BROKEN BY MINE ARMS.  PSALMS 18:34.

But….I have learned.  Of, the kind of warfare that came from heaven, when the angels fought against each other, and I saw who was truly my friend, and who was not, in the spirit, and it is easy to fight against those spirits that so want to steal my loyalty.  No! I will not give place to the enemy.  I will submit to God, I will resist the enemy, and he will flee.  Because I fear God.  I will not be torn in my spirit to choose, those who are not obedient to God.  Thats their choice!  I am sad for them, but my mind, and heart is made up, I will choose God.  This is where my loyalty must always be.  

So, if you are wondering where your loyalty is?  Then ask yourself, do you fear God?  Because if you do not, you are not loyal to God.  You will have warfare.  Within.  You have to know.  You have to decide once and for all.  Who will you be loyal to?  I fear God, and it is the healthiest thing I can do. 

I choose God.  Who do you choose?  This will affect your decisions, your blessings, your salvation.

Time is of the essence.  Right now, you have this gap in time to choose, but if you do not choose correctly, and with wisdom, and loyalty to choose God.  You can lose out.  For eternity.  Don’t let the enemy steal your blessings, your health, or your love, or anything that God promises to give you.  Its not worth it.  Its not.  You still can be blessed.  If you choose wisely.

Loyalty, is proof of love.  Never forget that.  Christ proved it.  What do you have to prove?

Blessings and love in Jesus Christ, for what He did on the cross for me.  And I thank my Lord Jesus.

NAY, IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH HIM, THAT LOVED US.  ROMANS 8:37. KJV.

LEST SATAN SHOULD GET AN ADVANTAGE OF US:  FOR WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF HIS DEVICES.  II CORINTHIANS 2:11. KJV. 

HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS; AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON.  REVELATION 21:7. KJV.

AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BRUISE SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET SHORTLY.  THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOU.  AMEN ROMANS 16:20 KJV.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.”
‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:1-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Loneliness, contributes to sin, and when loneliness is there, the void is evident.  God is missing.  So we sin.

Try explaining that in one sentence.  But it is true, when we have rejected God, or we have decided to sin, Gods spirit leaves.

He is holy.  He calls us to holiness.   He cannot be in our temples, so to speak, if we have sinned, or entertain even the thought of sinning.  

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  I Corinthians 3:16.

I know this now.   But years ago I did not.  I did not know how important it was for me, to develop my own relationship with the Lord.  In obedience, in prayer, in seeing even in scripture with the fear of God, that He punished sin.

Grace is a beautiful thing.  But lets get one thing straight.  Grace does not pardon sin.  We reap what we sow.  Grace is being repentant to God, and then He pardons the sin.  Thereby giving grace.  By not punishing us for something we ALL so deserve.  But it is by Christs sacrifice, that we are extended grace.

But He does not extend grace to the heart, or soul, that sins, and does not repent.  Grace is not an excuse to sin.  And sloppy agape, does not cut it.  

No wonder our world is so jacked up.  No wonder, there are so many people who do the things they do.  They want to fill that empty spot.  They want to relieve the pain of loneliness.  They don’t want to be alone.  So what do they do?  They look for a substitute.  

They break vows, with God and a mate.  Or they break their own promises to serve God.  A covenant, they break for sin.  They break the “law” of God so much, they become their own enemy.  The law….don’t confuse that.  God does not change.  And those commandments, they are there for a reason, Gods reasons.  

But people who look for a substitute…..They go with people, who are bad influences.  They go with people, who entice them.  They go with people, who offer them drugs, or alcohol, or anything to “numb” the loneliness.  So they sin.  

Then it opens the door to other things, like STDS, (sexual transmitted diseases) because the wages of sin is death, and its the enemies plan to come to kill, to destroy, your life.  

Or worse, they entice someone.  Lord help the innocent….  

This opens the door to the devil.  And he does not want you to know Christ.  He does not want you to be saved.  And the more and more you sin, the further and further you get from God, because the place in your heart, that you have that should be filled with God, is gone, because you allowed sin.  This is why we all get lonely.

For in just having a “true” relationship with the Lord, not based on religion, but in knowing Him, accepting Him, seeking Him, He takes the place of what sin is, and He fills the void.  The loneliness leaves.

God meant for us to have a true partner, and mate in life, who is someone who helps us, in these things.  And I just want to implore you.  Keep trusting God.  You may be lonely.  You may be looking for love in the wrong places.  But let God fill your heart up, your mind, your spirit, and keep busy, whatever it may be, no matter how lonely you are, but He can take the place of your loneliness.  And till then He can bring you a mate.  But don’t ever, ever let go of God, even if you find someone else to love.  

I think I am writing this for a friend, or an acquaintance.  He just lost his wife, she died.  He may read this or not.  But I think he is lonely and is fighting the urge to sin.  To drink, smoke, or to do something else.  Who knows, but he is coming to my mind to pray for him.  

I think I am writing this for a couple of beautiful ladies I know.  You use men, as substitutes. You want love, but you let someone take that which is Gods, and you give yourself away….You cheapen love.  By not honoring yourself.  And first and foremost God.  

I think I am thinking of another lady, who is so lonely, that she tries to find it in other people, by pleasing them.  But they treat her shabbily for it.  I think she has given up on finding love.  But I think he is just around the corner.  

I know this could be you or me, or someone else, but if we don’t identify the loneliness, and even repent for rejecting God from our hearts, we cannot win.  He has to be the main cause of our love.  He has to be front and center, to spare us, to save us.  To ensure our salvation.  

We have to trust God, release the loneliness, and not trust our own judgment on matters like this when we are struggling.  

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding Proverbs 3:5.  

I pray for all of us.  Because I know what its like, I grew up lonely.  I grew up, struggling to find my way.  Trusting people, who hurt me.  Trusting even those in the body of Christ, those that were not mature, but actually were a pawn of the devil, to destroy the plan of God in my life.  

I myself, see the results of my own sins, that I acquired because I was lonely.  It grieves me that it affected me so…

Its been a long time, since I have been lonely.

I am just so grateful for my husband my son, and one or two true friends I have.  That I am not lonely, why?  

Some might even see, that I purposely do not get to close to some, because I embrace what I have with Christ, and they have to prove love to me, because I won’t allow my affections to be used.  

For the sake of loneliness.  I know how valuable I am now.  I know, I am a good person, a nice person, because of Christ.  I respect myself, because I make sure, in fear of God, I respect HIM and His truth.

Because of His truth!  But I have learned I do not give myself away.  Or to throw my pearls to swine. Or to sin, to fill any void.  

Its not worth it, now when I know how precious my relationship with my God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit….

Because Christ is my greatest friend.

I hope this blesses you or someone.  I know the Holidays are upon us, but Christ can be with us every day.  Seek Him friends, fight the good fight of faith.  Loneliness will pass, just don’t give into sin, to fill that void.  Nothing can take the place of Christ.

Much love, in Christ,

Elena Ramirez

AS CHRIST SAID FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO BUT YOU KNOW DON’T YOU? ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez

So obviously, the Lord is teaching me something, maybe you too, by my writings.

But yesterday, the Lord showed me the root of bitterness, that can be planted in our hearts, when we have unforgiveness, or hate, bitterness in our hearts. We cannot let it remain. We cannot let it take over our hearts.

How can we grow to be who we should be in Christ if we allow these things? Look at my previous post, for more insight.

Anyway, so I pulled out that root. I pulled it out, uncaring, and yes even cold in my spirit. But for a moment there, I almost forgot, to repent, humble myself before God, and to ask for forgiveness myself.

Why? Because God says He will not forgive me, if I do not forgive others. How we can forget. I am a seasoned Christian, yet we do forget. We can let the “old” ways back in, we are new in Christ, but if we allow the old ways back in, we have to start all over.

Symbolism. Remember the people of God, walked around Israel for 40 years? I don’t want to do that. I can’t not at this place of my life. I am tired of not making progress, or making the same mistakes over again.

So, this morning, in this lesson of life, Christ reminded me of what He said on the cross before He gave His life for you and me. He said. Forgive them, for they know not what they do.

THEN SAID JESUS, FATHER, FORGIVE THEM; FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO. AND THEY PARTED HIS RAIMENT, AND CAST LOTS. Luke 23:34.

These are very profound words from our Lord. Not just words, that remind us of what they did, but what we all did to put Christ on that cross for our sins. We sin!

Its our nature, we are all born into sin, but we don’t have to die from it. We can be renewed, we can be healed, we can be made whole and clean, from what Christ did.

But how can we if we do not know what we do? This again, is why I so implore people to use a King James Bible because the anointing and holiness is so important in word. And it has been changed, and people use bad versions, not knowing what they do, and that it has been corrupted.

There has been a build up, so to speak in my heart, as I deal with Christians, who want to fight about truth. Even about this, my calling to warn others about these bad bibles. With friends, who abandoned me. Burned me, used me, and even with those who I love, but again, they do not support me. And my calling. Sure once in a while they are inspired, but where is the support and love?

Something started growing, in my heart and it was not good.

Its not about me, its about Gods word, truth, and message. And sometimes well, the messenger is ignored. O.k. I get that. Am I glad to say it? No.

But, the truth is people, cannot respond to something you know, but they do not. And I do know this……that which I talk about concerning the King James Bible.

So Christ reminded me. “Forgive them, for they know not what they do and do not do.” FORGIVE!

I thought I was. But it was growing in me. It was a part of me, as I try to do the Lords work, and it gets in the way.

The thing though, shouldn’t I know better as well? Yes, but like yesterday, in my coldness, as I threw away that root. I almost did it without repenting, humble before God. I saw that in myself. Maybe someone read the message, before I edited it, but I did not include repenting. And I have to be honest. When I saw that, I rewrote it.

Well, because I live with myself, and I so dedicate my writings to being honest, and even here, I have to forgive myself. As I forgive others. But I repent first. Because my actions do not mean anything unless I take it all to the throne of God.

Sometimes, you see people, and you think in a lot of things….. They should know better. They should not do what they do. Like in the matters of loving, being kind, compassionate, supportive, etc. Or just knowing truth, from His holy word. This is fruit from Christ. But where is it?

But look what they did to Christ. And even though, they crucified Him. He forgave. Because He understands. He gave His life. Knowing this…

We know not what to do without Him, and that is the truth of the matter.

Lesson to be learned, you cannot do it on your own. It requires Gods help. Or you will make the same mistakes over, and over again. Only He can truly change a heart. To know.

So yes forgive….But let me remind you, a time of forgiving will run out.  

Someday the mercy and grace of God will stop.  It will be a time for judgement.  It will be a time to open the books in heaven.  So if we know that, yes forgive, but for the sake of all of our souls.  Let us obey God now!  Because some day, it will be too late to forgive.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

The promptings from God, require that sometimes you have to be extreme and take a stand.  Even here to say, I am a Christian author, tells others, that I am a servant of God.  So as a servant of God, I sense and see that this comes with great responsibility.  Because of who God is, and His plan.  

What I have learned, is God is very strategic.  He has a plan for everything, and when things come together, there are miracles, there are answers, and there is evidence.  And this always gives God glory.  

So because I know that, I have to discipline myself sometimes to take a stand, and yes be extreme.

Growing up, I always tried to take the middle road.  I tried to avoid conflict but it somehow or another found me.  I tried to do things my way, and well, if any of you know me, that did not turn out too well.  

I wanted to sing, and be another Diana Ross, that did not turn out well.  But, yet, I knew if I wanted to sing, I had to stand in front of an audience.  I did.  I sang.  And I was not a bad singer for the most part, though, I can laugh a little about it now, but I would sing spanish songs, and I did not know the words, I just imitated the words.  

People saw through that.  I saw through that, and I gave up.  Maybe I could have tried at it harder but I gave up.  I did not like the lifestyle.  I did not like being in bars.  

I did not know Christ as my Lord and savior, so I was very misguided.  I always say, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train.  But did I?  And in this cycle of life, success, can still come around….  

Yet in my writing, well thats different, I do get extreme, and I do take a stand for who I am in Christ.  I strive for truth.  I speak Gods truth from my King James bible.  And that gives me the greatest confidence, ever.

I know I was meant to write for the Lord.  Success, well according to the worlds standards, I may not have accomplished that.  But there is a real wonderful sense of just knowing truth, and knowing who God is, and being able to articulate it to someone.  To perhaps help them.  To share knowledge, to inspire someone, to bring truth.  And yes to always try and give God the glory.

So, why am I writing this?  Because I have learned, and I am still learning to stretch myself.  To know, sometimes I have to get out of my comfort zone.  Growing up again, I was not encouraged to do that.  No one took me by the hand and said, Elena you have to be bold.  You have to be strong, you have to do this.  

In fact, maybe you can relate.  But I have found, to survive sometimes, and yes thrive, you have to reach out, and grab the ring, and hold on.  You have to try…..

I get frustrated with people, who do not try to grow.  Who just take, but do not give.  Who sit around on the sidelines.  Yes, I know God loves them, and so do I, but they don’t inspire me.  I like being around people, who try.  I am inspired by those who know every day is gift from God, so they try to bless God in return.  

But I have noticed, those that I admire, have a boldness, a confidence, a sense to reach out and try.  When I see people, are just handed something, even in their looks, but they use it for the wrong thing, I think what a waste.  

Now I have had confidence issues, self-esteem issues, but deep down inside, I know who I am in Christ.  And Christ tells me I can do all things through Him.  Phillippians 4:13.  So I take that to heart.  I don’t give up.  I have not reached a measure of success, in my life financially.  

But I live a good life, a clean life, a healthy life, and a life of love.  With my family, my husband and son.  With God front and center, in all my thoughts, and decisions.  And the love I have….they are gifts, but gifts I do not take for granted.  Yet, I still long to do something great, to at least say I accomplished this, and for God.  

So maybe my inspiring you, can be that great thing you can do.  You see, just getting by, just standing on the sidelines, may make you safe, or so you think, but what if God wanted to use you for something, and you don’t want to take that stand?

You might, you could miss out, on the greatest opportunity that ever came your way.  “Could have, would have, should have”…..might be the questions you asked yourself.  If you are not bold, and extreme.

So you have to be prayed up.  You have to just make a commitment, to be ready for that opportunity.  It may just require you to be bold, and take a stand, and be extreme.  Get the word of God, the King James word….because to be honest the enemy will try to stop the plan of God in your life.  And you always need a defence.  

Just remember this, and I guess this is the scripture that inspired me, but I don’t want to be ‘lukewarm” in life.  Neither cold nor hot.  And when I stand before God, I don’t want him to say I missed it.  Over and over again.  Something about pleasing God motivates me, and inspires me…  

SO THEN BECAUSE THOU ART LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOR HOT, I WILL SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.  Revelation 3:16. 

Because you know that if you ask Him, He will use you.  It may feel uncomfortable, but you will grow, and gain a strength, and a sense of who you are so much, that it will build your confidence.  

So get ready, to be bold, and extreme.  And then just walk into your calling, and blessings.  

Much love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

I do want to be a nice person, but I want to be one who speaks truth in love.  I am older now, and I have really, in all actuality tried to be a nice person.  All of my life.  

But that did not stop me from getting into physical battles, and yes spiritual ones.  Because there usually is someone who will challenge you, even when you are trying to be nice.  Or speaking truth.  

And it just made me think, because recently, I had an opposing thought from someone, who more or less challenged me, and it made me think.  I walked in love with this person, for the most part, but they brought up feelings that made me think, how dare they challenge me, when they say hypocritical things.  Things I have seen them write.  And I thought about the poison, that can bring in.  I repented.

You know, I want to be nice.  But not for the sake of denying Christ.  Or to please someone else.  To just be a people pleaser.  Yet I know, truth can cut.  It can wound.  It can divide people.  I know.

I have lost a lot of friends, because I have spoken truth.  But I am not going to change my way to be nice, and to see someone I love, or care about, go down the wrong road, or near the fire, and say it harshly, or even abruptly, don’t do that, that will burn you.  Or to warn them about someone who does not speak truth.

So I speak truth.  Praying it will make them see the truth.  Gods truth.  As a warning of love.  Praying they will see what Christ did on the cross for us, and that anybody else who denies Christ as the way, the truth, and life, is someone we should not look up to as leaders.  

I am not perfect.  I have made bad judgment calls.  Even in truth.  And the thing is, we can be deceived, if we don’t know Gods whole truth.  I add that word “whole” because I believe in the King James Bible.  

Yet, many other bible versions are not “whole” and complete, because they have missing scriptures, the content is changed, because the context is changed, and they are corrupt.  Its disobedience, to use anything that God has warned us not to change or add to or delete.  He has warned us throughout my King James, not to do that.

I have used this analogy before, but Christ is the bread of life.  He would not give us junk food.  When He serves us.  But those bible versions, have mold on them.  Mold because they disregarded Gods warnings, and when we share or give scripture and use scripture that has been changed.  There is no true anointing and holiness.  It therefore then becomes junk food.  They are corrupted.

Yes, there may be some truth to the scripture but because it was changed, it is now part truth, part lie.  I warn people all the time, and so many are totally annoyed and withdrawn from me, because I speak this truth.  

Oh I am not fooled.  People, come and go, but they keep me at a distance, because of this truth, I believe in.  Churches, that once embraced me ignore me.  Leaders in the body of Christ won’t even give me the time of day, when I speak to them.

Well, it is what it is.  I know I am just me, and some people look at me, and think I am foolish, as they define this truth as just nonsense.  But they do not see, they are blind.  Yet their intellectual reasoning, and defiance, is foolishness to God.

You would think by now, I would back off.  But instead my armor of God has gotten stronger, and bolder.  In His truth.  

TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY, IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  ISAIAH 8;20.  

All I can do is be obedient to God, and speak this truth.  I will try and be nice about it, but I will never change my mind about this truth.  

PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.  COMPARE SCRIPTURES, AND SEE THE CHANGES.  SEE THE MISSING SCRIPTURES.  SEE THE DECEPTION, THAT THE ENEMY BRINGS TO DECEIVE, BY CHANGING GODS HOLY WORD.  MORE THEN ANYTHING SEE THE SCRIPTURES THAT WARN ALL OF US NOT TO DO ANYTHING WITH GODS HOLY WORD!  

Read at least Revelation 22:18-19 if you value your salvation.  Read it from a King James Bible.  

And if you perceive my caps as not being nice oh well.  But I would rather please God, than anybody.  Even in shouting it out.  

I think my testimony in my life, is proving that, and I hope it always will reflect my loyalty to God in truth.  

His truth, not mine, not yours, not some strange person who sat behind a desk, and came up with some bible that is not truth, but HIS!

Have a blessed day, Elena Ramirez

It is difficult for me to write this.  But I don’t know what else to do.  I have prayed about this very much, on and off for the past couple of years, and I feel like I am drowning.  I am drowning because I don’t know what to do.  

But I just want to ask…..If you saw someone drowning wouldn’t you try and help them?  I would.  This is why I write.  To help someone.  

Twice, I have felt the prompting to write this, and because of that I feel like it is God prompting me to ask for help.  I don’t want to have pride, concerning this.  But humbly, I have to admit in truth, that I don’t know how to go about publishing my book in the market, distributing it, networking, and just tooting my horn or asking for help.  So that is why it is hard.  

I know what I have written in these two books, are self-help books, to help people in their faith, and to break curses.  I know how to write.  This is my gift, but I admit, in other matters of this.  I don’t know what to do.  

I have tried as much as I can on my own, to “self-publish” these books.  And I have tried to take it further by getting the books listed on my blog, and on Smash words, where some could find them, and download them electronically.  

I have been writing for years.  In service to God, and to others.  I know what I write is truth.  I know what I write is based on the King James Bible.  I know my Bible.  I know, from my own trial and error, what works, and what does not.  Concerning God.  To change our characters, to change our souls.  To please God.

I know what I write, can offer someone hope, and yes truth.  Which to be honest is so missing from so many.  I am not trying to put myself in a position, where I am saying I know better then someone else.  But when I see, false prophets, liars, and people who twist Gods word, say for example concerning the “prosperity message.” I do get sad, that I cannot find my way.  

Well, I am asking Gods people to help me.  I am asking for help.  I don’t understand the publishing world.  I don’t have the connections.  I don’t know where to go from here, but to ask humbly please help me.  

I have in the past asked for help.  To publishers, to literary agents, to even other ministries, and I have been rejected over and over again.  Throughout the years…That maybe this is why it is hard for me to ask.  But I do ask.  

Please help me so God can get glorified.  Help me, so others can learn truth.  Help me, because I need a miracle.  If anything pray for the glory of God to be revealed, so I can get the help to give God glory.  So others can be helped.  

I am just sending out this SOS….and praying someone knows someone, or has the ability, and knowledge and maybe even financial resources to help me.  

But I know I cannot do this on my own.  I take what God gives me, in my writings, and even small quotes, and I write them, and pray it helps someone. Daily I write.  I breathe and write, because if I do not write.  I would not be fulfilled.  And this is who I am in Christ.

I promote the King James bible, and I also know in my writings how important this Holy word of God is, to bring truth.  I have been obedient.  

I am not giving up, but I don’t know what to do, so I ask for help.  This whole process has been so overwhelming.  But I do take direction from God, and this is what I feel like He is telling me to do.  To ask for help.

God bless you for taking the time out of your day to read this, and if anything to share it to someone who may know how to help me.  For the glory of God.  

Please respond to me, if you feel led at prayerofgod@comcast.net  My photo above has the links to the books electronically.  You can see more information on http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

The titles of both of my books are:  

HOW TO HAVE FAITH.  

BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST.  

I believe, and I do ask in prayer.  I ask in the beautiful name of our Lord and savior.  Jesus Christ.  This is why I can ask you.  

Maybe you need an answer, or maybe you know someone who needs an answer, and I can help them.  Because you or they may be drowning.  I can help them by showing them who Christ is.

In fact, I know I can.  Because of who Christ is to me.  And what HE has done in my life.

PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS, LOOK AT MY MANY POSTS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME TO WRITE.  I CAN OFFER HOPE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING TO THOSE WHO NEED ANSWERS FROM GOD.   

AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE.  MATTHEW 21:22

Thank you, in Service to Christ and His sheep, His people, to God be the glory.
