HOW TO DISTINGUISH THE SPIRIT OF “DELUSION” ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Have you ever met someone, or found within yourself that spirit of delusion?  The spirit, that thinks it’s right.  That is so argumentative, and determined because frankly, they believe what they see, say, and believe.  But it’s wrong.  And its hard for that person to admit, or to see, for whatever reason….

That if you presented truth to them, they would reject it.  The facts, may be quite evident.  But they cannot distinguish between black or white.  They will call evil good, and good evil.  It does not make sense.

So one can conclude, that they are delusional. 

Well that comes from a lie.  The father of lies, the enemy.  The devil. And it is quite sad, when one knows truth, but one does see, folks, who would rather believe the lie.  Would rather, pursue something, but it is a falsehood.

And that’s always the goal of the enemy.  To deceive.  To make something look like a counterfeit.  To fool someone totally.  And that is a spirit of delusion.

The King James scriptures, here, talk about it.

REMEMBER YE NOT, THAT, WHEN I WAS YET WITH YOU, I TOLD YOU THESE THINGS?  AND NOW YE KNOW WHAT WITHOLDETH 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 BELIEVED 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.  

II THESSALONIANS 2:5-12 KING JAMES.  

Gee that last verse scares me, as it should you.  Because one is damned, who does not believe the truth, and who has pleasure in unrighteousness.  Yes, it is a spirit of delusion, if you rejoice in unrighteousness.  Only you and God can answer that.  The devil will not tell you that truth, because again, he wants to deceive you.

IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST, WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM.  II CORINTHIANS 4:4  KJV.  

So be careful who you ask…..

And you really have to understand the root of it.  Because it can come from many sources.  It could be generational.  It could be because someone did not pursue truth, to begin with.  It could be, someone was taught to lie, to be deceptive, so that the spirit of delusion came to that person very easily.  But it always comes from denying God, and His truth, His gospel.

Again, are you using a King James?  Thats the first step to defeating the spirit of delusion.  

So, one must understand, it is very manipulative.  It is very controlling, the spirit of delusion.

In any event, it does steal from a persons soul, it does deceive, and it does cripple a person spiritually, so they cannot have real discernment, unless they make it right with God.  They cannot see clearly, because the spirit of delusion, clouds their thinking…

But one can be cured, or healed from that spirit of delusion, to see the truth.

By repentance.  By acknowledging one may have that spirit of delusion.  Because frankly, they do not have the mind of Christ in matters.  And only Christ, can deliver someone.  Yet, it also takes wisdom, from God, to have discernment in such matters.  So one must repent, and accept Christ as Lord and savior.  To be delivered.  One must desire, and love truth.  Gods truth.  Yearn for it, so one will not be consumed by the lie, and perish.

I guess, I see it, because I have had poor judgement in the past.  I had it, when I was not a true Christian.  Sure, I believed in God, but I did not know his truth, like I do now, and I was very prone to being deceived.  I don’t think that spirit of delusion left me, until, I totally submitted to God, resisted the enemy, and he left.  I had to see the error of my own ways.  Letting go of pride, to think, I could do it my way…..

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.  I CORINTHIANS 2:16  KJV.  

So, in some matters, I suppose, I was delusional, especially, in my youth.  because I was not in the truth.  Experience in life, can show you the fruit of that.  When you are not in the truth, of who God is, and what He expects, its very easy, to have a spirit of delusion.

But now, I am a little bit more wiser.  A lot more submissive to God, totally, in fact, as I state it here.  Because I fear God.  And fear of God, can keep you out of trouble.  Not only spiritually, but in life.

I understand His commandments, and law.  I am not perfect.  I know, I can sin, and fall short of His glory, but I don’t take grace for granted.  But this is a gift He gives in understanding.  It’s not me, its Him, because I let Him rule my spirit, in His truth.  And I am very aware, to not try and sin, or to do something that is morally wrong, or deceptive.  I always pray for discernment, so I will not have a spirit of delusion.  I understand one does reap what they sow.  And no, its not karma.  Quit saying that, if you do, because its not King James scriptural.

Have you ever met someone, and you got good or bad vibes from them?  Well thats your gut instinct.  Also known by the Holy spirit.  If you have submitted to God.  But if it is led by God, you will see the good.  But also understand what is evil, and not good, according to His truth, a King James bible.

If the spirit is bad, it will seek company with those who likely, do not know God, and do things that are quite questionable.  Because in retrospect, their spirit is led by the devil.  It will blind someones good judgment, to believe a lie about someone.  

But you always have to see, is there something there, that could be blocking discernment or understanding, to give the spirit of delusion?  

God tells us…

 I ALSO WILL CHOOSE THEIR DELUSIONS, AND WILL BRING THEIR FEARS UPON THEM; BECAUSE WHEN I CALLED, NONE DID ANSWER; WHEN I SPAKE, THEY DID NOT HEAR:  BUT THEY DID EVIL BEFORE MINE EYES, AND CHOSE THAT IN WHICH I DELIGHTED NOT.  ISAIAH 66:4  KING JAMES.  

Like the saying goes, misery, loves company.  And to be delusional, is frankly a miserable state of mind, to be in.  One needs the mind of Christ.

I am scratching the surface, here, but you have to understand, how important it is to be in Gods truth.  Or you can be deceived.  

Again, folks, I highly recommend a King James bible.  You cannot be receiving the mind of Christ, if something you are using, is counterfeit, because it has been corrupted.  Get in there, and search, and search.  Keep praying, and repenting, till you see the truth.  And you will.  Then you will understand, the spirit of delusion.

You can yourself, be delusional.  But one must understand, it is a principle, God has placed.  And if one is not right with God, well they will have a spirit of delusion.

Hope this helps someone.  And just remember, if you see someone who is delusional, who does believe a lie.  Don’t argue with them.  Let them go.  Don’t get caught up in their strife.  There is a strange spirit in that.  

Just let them be….sure pray for them.  But walk away. 

In Christ, totally, and His love,

DON’T GIVE THE ENEMY A LEGAL RIGHT TO ATTACK YOU ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0943.jpegI don’t think many folks, understand this, but I feel like the Lord, is bringing it to my attention to write about.

Do you give the enemy a legal right to attack you?  Do you allow sin, in your life?  Do you not repent, when you do slip up?  Are your words you speaking opening doors, to the enemy?  Do you watch things on television, that are spiritual, but not from God?  There are many reasons, why you could be spiritually attacked.  But you have to see.

See, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  None of us, are beyond the temptations of the enemy.  Even the best of us.

But if you purposely, disobey God.  If you walk out of love.  If you, steal, lie and cheat, cut corners, thinking you are “blessing” yourself, you are bringing in curses.  If you hurt someone, to have vengeance.  That is not of God. And there is more…. I am sure.

Why do you think I fear God?  Because I know, if His spirit departs, from me, I know, I am opened to the attacks of the enemy.  And not only does that grieve me, because His love, His fellowship, is the sweetest thing I have.  But it opens doors to the enemy.

And I know God fights my battles, when I am close to Him.  When I repent.  When I walk in Love.  When I don’t take the bait from the enemy to sin.  See, his goal is to deceive any of us.  To take our crowns.  To lose grace with God.

Now there are many reasons, spiritually, why things can go bad.  And do bad things happen to good people?  I won’t specifically answer that, because none is good.  But, I think of Job.  From my King James bible.  He was a good man, but he suffered greatly.  But he was tested by God.  And sometimes, the tests God places in front of us, determines, whether or not, we give the enemy a “legal” right to attack.  Or if God will bless us….hmmm.

If you know, you are doing everything in your own power, to submit to God, and you are resisting the enemy, yes, you could be in a position, where God is going to test you.

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

The enemy, wants you to fail, to fall, to use you, as a matter of fact.  Don’t take the bait.  Don’t give the enemy, a legal right to attack you.  He wants to take your crown.

Grace does not always cover these things folks!  God is a legal God, and when folks, abuse His law, they do not understand, grace will not cover it.  This is why I get so upset when Christian leaders, do not teach this.  Gods law, needs to be acknowledged, respected, and kept!  There are consequences.  This is breaking Gods law, and this is where many give the enemy a legal right!

You cannot be forgiven for something, you did long ago, if you do not repent now!

I see, folks, who have done things for the enemy.  Publicly, they do wickedly, and like the scripture says, there is no peace to the wicked.

ISAIAH 57:21 KING JAMES.  THERE IS NO PEACE, SAITH MY GOD, TO THE WICKED.  

And they have no peace.  And when they try and get back to God, they don’t understand, about repentance.  They don ‘t understand, about not doing wicked things.  Why?  Because they have no knowledge, no understanding, of what God expects.  And they can only get it from a King James bible, but instead, they use something that has been corrupted.  And it is part truth, part lie, and they cannot get delivered.  This is why, time, and time, again, I recommend a King James bible.

So if you are going through a test, or the enemy, is attacking you.  Make sure you are doing all you can to serve God.  To do what’s right.  To avoid strife.  To walk in love.  To be honest.  To not hurting others.  Be careful with the acquaintances, friends, you do keep company with.  Make sure, you are praying.  Submitting to God.  Make sure your word is good.  Put on the armor of God.  Study the armor, from Ephesians 6, a King James chapter, and plead the blood of Jesus.

PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL.  EPHESIANS 6:11 KJV. 

Rebuke the enemy.  In the name of Jesus, as you plead the blood of Jesus.  Tell the Lord, to fight your battles.  He will.  Claim those scriptures.  Look them up, from a concordance, or a good bible app.

Do not ever, ever, let go of Gods hand.  Trust Him.  Speak your faith, to Him, and to others.  Don’t be silent.  Don’t give place to the enemy, by not speaking your faith.

Repent daily folks.  I recommend it, like an apple a day, that keeps the doctor away.  See we blow it, sometimes, we get out of love, we can open that door more then we know.  So repent….

You have to see, and know according to King James scripture, what pleases God.  Or you will be judged, and also face consequences, because we do reap what we sow.  I know this.  God will help you, but you have your own part, in fighting a good fight of faith, with love.  By yes, submitting to God.

Don’t give the enemy a legal right.  It could be a generational curse as well.  You have to break it, by getting close to God, and if you have to repent of that, do it!

“Return to Sender”; the curses back to the enemy…..

Hope this helps, stay close to God my friends, our Lord Jesus.  But whatever you do, friends, be mindful to try and please God.  To walk right.

To not abuse your salvation.  It is so precious, that our Lord, died for us, on the cross, and suffered for our sins, so the enemy, would not have that “legal” right to attack.

Feel free to share this link, you may help someone.

THE MEASURE OF SUCCESS IS DETERMINED BY GOD NOT MONEY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2The Prosperity message, has been going on now for a while.  Name it and claim it, Holler for a Dollar, and Just call it forth…  

I despise that message.  I despise, the distortion it brings to the body of Christ.  

When we should be seeking His face, not His hand.  I wonder how much God hates it?   I should probably not use that word despise, but I do dislike it immensely.  Why?  

Because when its taught from the pulpit, and it puts off the Salvation message, it totally misses the point, that Christ gave us as a mandate.  To seek the lost, and to preach the gospel.  

When I hear gospel messages, and it is not derived from Holy King James word, I just shake my head.  Because it then becomes the blind leading the blind.  I don’t want success if it comes from being disobedient to God, or by twisting something, manipulating it, to work.  Thats wrong, thats evil to me.  

When the prosperity message takes the focus off of the salvation message, it does not teach someone, to seek God, or to see the error of their ways, or to be humble, repentant.   To grow, not only now, but for eternity, it misses the whole point, of what Christ did for us, and can do for us.  By the cross. Its kind of flakey.

Success, hmmm, I wonder, if this is why I have not found it?  Because I see I am definitely not like those in the body of Christ who are successful.

Well anyway, according to the worlds ways.  To those who know me, or to those who might read my writings, they might ask, why should I read her writings?  What success does she have?

I don’t know, maybe someone who would see me, or meet me, would not see success.

You might even see someone who is broken.  You might not even give me a second thought.  You probably could take me or leave me.  See, that has happened to me, but I don’t care.  I mean I care, but I don’t waste my time, on people, who do not celebrate me, in Christ, but just tolerate me.  

Though, I can never compare myself to Him, or what He does, I understand that.  To know He was rejected, according to the standard of the world. They saw Christ that way too.  In a lot of ways….

FOR HE SHALL GROW UP BEFORE HIM AS A TENDER PLANT, AND AS A ROOT OUT OF A DRY GROUND:  HE HATH NO FORM NOR COMELINESS; AND WHEN WE SHALL SEE HIM, THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM.  HE IS DESPISED AND REJECTED OF MEN, A MAN OF SORROWS, AND ACQUAINTED WITH GRIEF:  AND WE HID AS IT WERE OUR FACES FROM HIM; HE WAS DESPISED, AND WE ESTEEMED HIM NOT.  SURELY HE HATH BORNE OUR GRIEFS, AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS; YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED.  BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  ISAIAH 53:2-5

I love these scriptures, that describe my Lord.  Because by His stripes we are healed.  As we get to know Him.  Body, soul, and spirit.  

But before I truly knew Him…. I did not understand.

The thing is, though, I have always strived to use my gifts and callings, to open doors. Searching for success.  I have tried to always have a learning spirit, to learn technology, to learn just the basics.  I wish I had gotten a better education, I know education can open doors.  Doors have not opened for me.

From my music, to my writings now, I have tried to look for the gimmick, to make success mine.  That was the wrong perspective by the way….  

But I don’t do that now.  Because I realized a few years ago, even with my writing, that I have a gift, to express myself, and that gift is meant to draw others to Christ.  

Freely, I have been given, freely, I must give.

I never want to abuse my gifts, He has given me.  In fact, I want my gifts to bring glory to Him.  He gave me the gift of life, and I will use my life, to bring glory to Him.  

Its not always easy, there are times, I have to have courage, be bold, step out of my comfort zone, fight the devil, with the word of God, and try to bring Him into it.  Sometimes yelling at folks, step away from the fire.  But I have found if I am obedient to that, He gives me the courage.  How I understand it, sometimes amazes me, but He shows me.  From moment to moment.   

I try….To explain, who I was before I met Him, to tell others what He did for me, and does for me.  Life is a process, of growing, and if you stop growing especially in Christ, you fail to have success.  

I don’t care if you have money, or if you even had a gift to make money, if thats your only goal in life, and you put people away, or your own family, and mostly God, you are a failure.  

Thats why I don’t peddle the word of God.  I don’t ask for donations, or an offering.  I don’t try to manipulate you, to give me something, so God can bless you.  Some would call that a seed offering.  I remember years ago, my mom used to write to a certain ministry.  She poured her heart out, and when they wrote back.  They said nothing about her need, or even tried to talk to her.  They just asked for money.  It so turned me off.

God has shown me so much, that if someone just really took the time, to be my friend in Christ, I could show them so much.  About God, about His Holy King James truth, to pray for them.  To show them….

So their life could be enhanced, blessed.  But life is so funny, when it comes to people.  They come and go.  They seek you, if you have something to give, but then they discard you, when you don’t do it their way, or you see, they are not accountable to God, or others.  Or you stop giving to them…

Because it convicts them.  Nobody likes others to tell you the truth.  They may admire it for a while, but if you tell them the truth, then you are a jerk.  For lack of a better word.  

I have concluded, at this time in my life.  If I want success, I don’t look for it in people, or in money, or what I have, or don’t have.  Financially, etc.

What I do look at…. is how much have I grown in Christ?  What kind of fruit do I have?  Is it Godly, or is it of the world?  What do I have to do in obedience to God, to be a better person?  What experiences have taught me about people, and yes God?  

I so trust God.  I so know, who He is.  And I don’t try to say that in a bragging way, but in a way, that makes me realize I fear Him, as well as Love Him.  His ways, are not our ways.  But I trust Him. I know Him.  

Its been hard, financially sometimes, but through it, I have seen God provide for me.  I never lack.  I can’t do great things with money, right now, if I could I would hope I would show and give more, do more etc.  

But I have learned, in seeking God therein is the true success.  

I won’t compete with people, or follow people.  It is a waste of energy.  

I am grateful.  To each their own.  I don’t try to do things my way.  But His way, for He is the way the truth and life.  John 14:6  I think I learned that the hard way….

I still dream, and hope, and pray the next chapter in my life, God willing will open doors, but I am grateful, for who He is, and I do seek His face not His hand, and it makes a difference for me.  I can honestly say, if doors do not open, but I can live a life, in peace, and joy, healthy, in the small things, I can be content.  With my family, then I am blessed.  But God has to be front and center, in our home, and in my life.  I want more of His presence, and love, guidance, with just confidence of who He is, and His Kingdom. I long to be refreshed…..

The above photo, is a door, my husband has been working on.  It is in our laundry room. It was warped, it was unpainted, and quite ugly.  We thought of just disposing of it.  But my husband worked on it so much, applied love, some ingenuity to it, and now its a beautiful door.  I tease my hubby and call him the “door healer.”  Because he saw the potential in it, and did not give up on it.  I see the “cross” on it….

See, I long for that, to know Christ in that way, because He does not give up on me, and I won’t give up on Him.  Has nothing to do with money, or people, but because of who He is, that I find life worth living, and being successful in Him.  

Just my thoughts today….

THE BODY OF CHRIST NEEDS TO BE UNITED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_1b9e

The following is a situation, where a friendship dissolved.  My friendship.  With someone, I cared about deeply as a Prayer partner, friend, etc. But do you ever see something, and you realize, this is something that could be rectified?  That this happens often.  I wrote this, but the impact of it opened my eyes.  We are not united, as Christians.  And this is part of the problem.  So read this, knowing yes its personal.  But it is also something that affects the body of Christ.  

This is a card, I got from someone, I called a sister, and a friend in Christ.  My Prayer Partner.  Someone, who I truly thought was family.  In the family of God. She gave it to me, years ago.  I never got rid of it, and just recently, ran across it.

It actually pained me, to see it.  Because it was such a sweet sentiment.  It was, I thought, just another reminder, to be faithful in Christ.   That we both had tried to share, in giving.  Nurturing. To each other.  In Christ.  

Because of Christ, and who He is.  He who loves us, and is the great intercessor, who intercedes on our behalf.  He taught us to love one another.  He taught us to pray, and to forgive.  

So, I had never worried about the friendship.  Maybe I should have, been more alert, more watchful, but it was something, I was very comfortable with, and had faith in.  

Somehow, and I saw it once.  I saw there was a lie.  And I won’t go into details, but I knew better, I saw the discrepancy, and yet still offered grace.  

But, the friendship dissolved.  And I see a lot of that, not only with this situation.  But I see Christians, who take the bait from the enemy.  And they disagree, and they leave no room for grace.  Or for, forgiveness, or just the ability, to resolve issues, without, a complete dissolving.  

People are thrown out of churches, for maybe not agreeing, and people would rather, have their pride, then try and resolve things.  Pastors, do not love their sheep, they throw them out to wolves.  

What happens with that, though, when its not broken, the power of unity, can move mountains.  It can heal the sick.  The power of agreement in prayer, with Christians, can bring God into a situation.  Christ, said, He was in the midst of those when there are two or more in agreement, in prayer.  

I know, because there was power, in our prayers, we prayed together.  In a prayer of agreement, and Christs love.  We both felt the presence of God.  We would worship the Lord together, raise our hands, and it was a blessing.  As we prayed.  

I actually miss it.  It was comforting, to go to someone, to ask for prayer.  I remember once, we prayed, I had lost my diamond out of my wedding ring, and she prayed, and as I looked down, it was on the floor, at the moment of prayer.  That was anointed. 

So, yes, I see the enemies hand in all of this.  Lies.  And if that characteristic shows up, the truth, is put to the side.  

In this particular situation, it took such a strange turn, that I still am shocked, when I think about it, at what was expressed, to me, but that I also became very stubborn, to not try and resolve it.  And for the record, I forgave, I tried to express that.  

But, there was nothing I really could do, at this point.  So, I walked away.  

Do you notice, people are not accountable?  They cannot debate, or reason with one another, without insulting?  Or use other methods of communication, unless its their way?  

I see that in other situations as well.  The finger pointing.  The accusing.  I see that in politics, in the church, with other Christians.  

These are world tactics.  And we as Christians are not called to be like the world.   The pride, stops Gods work. No wonder, God says, He hates pride. 

But it does get me mad, righteously indignant, that the devil, can divide people.  And that’s his entire purpose.  To kill, steal, and destroy.  And especially those who are united in prayer.  He wants to break up the body of Christ.  Because when we are in agreement, there is power.  

This is why, and I always try to hammer this.  But this is why, I use a King James bible, to be in agreement with Him.  Because the word is holy, anointed, and not corrupted by someone who changed it.  Its Gods voice, and there is great power in using a King James.  But its difficult to get folks to see that.  It would be nice if I even had someone to pray with concerning that, in a prayer of agreement.  But I no longer have that.  

But, I will always pray.  Even if it is by myself.  As an intercessor.  Who writes prayer, and I know that, as my gift and calling.  Yes, the power of agreement, in prayer is beautiful.  But one just needs Jesus to go the throne of God, and to seek Him, with His word, His promises.  Whether people agree or not. I guess, the benefit, of having someone agree with you in prayer though, is the speed of it.  I would think. I don’t know, but its beautiful when there is agreement in prayer.  

I believe in prayer, and the power of prayer, when there is obedience.  But it seems there is no power lately, with being united.  Even in our country.  Notice how divided we are?  As a nation. 

I am sad, this person, could not see that.  Because she thought and stated, that the friendship was only for a season.  But I don’t see any where in the bible, where it says, friendship is for a season.  In fact, in Proverbs 17:17  KJV it states:

A FRIEND LOVETH AT ALL TIMES, AND A BROTHER IS BORN FOR ADVERSITY. 

Words, do have power, that were spoken.  That it was only for a season, so I honored it.  The case was closed.  

How many other friendships, in Christ are dissolved, because of pride? Or just wanting to be right, and to have an attitude?

I don’t know.  All I know, is you cannot control people, with these kinds of methods.  I have never been into manipulating anyone.  Or trying to make them do something, that really is not from God.  And I myself, do rebel against such tactics.  

I have prayed.  But after a while, when the answer seems to be no.  You realize, that it could have been a test.  

I just saw things where, I knew, I had to stay loyal to God.  Where, no matter what, I could not compromise.  As much as I wanted to do so, I could not.  And will not. 

But I do pray, the body of Christ, and people would learn, yes, Christ tells us to forgive.  But in there, is a place, where we do have to be accountable, repentant, apologetic, humble, even to one another, and see the error of our ways, or we don’t grow.  

And we have to repent to God first, then to one another.  Why do I state God first?  Because God will not forgive us unless we ask for forgiveness.  And people think grace covers it.  And yes, grace is nice, this is what I offered in that situation.  But grace can be abused.  

But God is not mocked.  In any way.  I know this about my Lord, my Father.  We reap what we sow.  And it can be grievous.  Reaping from sin, can be so heart breaking.  I know, I have reaped from my own sins.  Things that are not reversible.  Because of being foolish, not praying.  Or asking for guidance.  

But these things happen, because we are not taught to repent.  We are not taught to apologize.  In fact, look around, when do you see repentance or apologies?  This is why the body of Christ needs to be united!

So, we always have to get right with God first.  We always have to be repentant, in His sight, or pride will creep up.  And therein, is the problem.  I had hoped, she would have seen the error of this.  But she did not.  

Thats what I had hoped for, it did not happen.  

I just know this.  I will never, ever trust anybody like that again.  See this was something that had touched my soul, but it made me realize, well, if God doesn’t trust the angels, how can He trust us?   Sad, that we cannot always trust each other.  

I think we all need to work on that.  I just want to hear well done good, and faithful servant.  So I pray, God trusts me.  

Friends, if you know someone in Christ, that you need to communicate with, because you on your part, did not offer grace.  Go to that person.  Make it right.  Give that devil a black eye, by being someone who has courage, enough, to walk in love.  

MY SON, IF THOU BE SURETY FOR THY FRIEND, IF THOU HAST STRICKEN THY HAND WITH A STRANGER, THOU ART SNARED WITH THE WORDS OF THY MOUTH, THOU ART TAKEN WITH THE WORDS OF THY MOUTH.  DO THIS NOW, MY SON, AND DELIVER THYSELF, WHEN THOU ART COME INTO THE HAND OF THY FRIEND; GO HUMBLE THYSELF, AND MAKE SURE THY FRIEND.  PROVERBS 6:1-3 King James.  

Christ said, we would be known by the love. John 13:34-35 King James.  Look it up.

We have to see this. It just resonated so strongly to me, that this is why we are not united. We are being deceived by the devil himself, when we do not walk in love. When we cannot forgive. Or we cannot resolve issues, because we are offended. God sees.  Please share this.  It could unite us.

7 REASONS WHY THERE ARE NOT MORE SALVATIONS (SOULS SAVED) FOR CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3692.jpegI believe that the Lord revealed to me right now, that there are seven reasons why there are not more salvations (souls saved) for Christ.  There may be more, I won’t limit God revealing the truth to me.  

And I am directing this message to Pastors, and to Christians, who claim they are Christians, and think they are saved.  

And the reason I am doing this, is because I see the fruit.  King James scripture says, we will know them by their fruit.  But I am not seeing fruit from many other Christians.  Even those, who are very “religious” and that could also be a reason.  Because if you are saved, you don’t have a religion, you have a relationship with Christ.  

But what bothers me greatly, as I am sure it does Christ as well, is that Christians are not stronger, more convicted, more bolder, more courageous for Christ.  They doubt themselves, and it is obvious.  They are tossed to and fro, and the scriptures tells us this.  In their own faith, and because of that, there are souls who are not getting the truth, nor seeing the testimony that these lives have been changed for Christ.  They cannot be true witnesses, because they themselves are missing it. 

They are not overcoming the enemy, by the words of their testimony, and many are falling by the way side.  I implore you, just by these reasons, look and see yourself, if you are failing Christ.  By not winning souls. Because He did not fail you, when He gave His life on that cross.  

For the sake of time, I am creating this draft, and who knows, it could go into a book, but I will be brief in these reasons:

1.  THE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE SAVED ARE SILENT.

I see Christians, who are ashamed, to proclaim they are Christians. You see it in social media.  You see it, in personal life.  I have seen it with friends.  They will not engage in spiritual battle, because they don’t want to get into a fight, or lose their peace, or proclaim who Jesus is, so they will not be judged.  They allow the devil to speak against our God.  They allow freedom of speech to be used to deny the deity of Christ.  Do they not know Christ said, we would be judged if we were ashamed of Him?  When we stand before God. For whatever reason, that they are silent, now, they are allowing the devil to steal the glory of God.  And that is the saddest thing. They are allowing the devil to deceive others.  And if you are a Christian, remember this:  

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  PSALMS 107:2.  King James.  

2.  CHRISTIANS ARE USING WATERED DOWN BIBLES

And when they do that, they are watering down the anointing, and holiness, of the gospel, when they use scriptures that are not on the same page with God.  They are not giving examples  by pulling out their King James to others, to say, THUS SAITH THE LORD!  You know I talk about this often.  But its the truth, when you use a “changed” bible, you are using something the enemy has put his hand to, and taken out the holiness.  Those bibles are half truths, half lies.  When pastors using those they are the blind, leading the blind.  And there is no true conviction or anointing from word, that has been changed.  This is why so many people look at Christians, and they don’t see the transformation.  Whoever uses these fake bibles are not knowing many scriptures that tell us not to change it, or add to it, or delete it.  It is a commandment.  

YE SHALL NOT ADD UNTO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU, NEITHER SHALL YE DIMINISH OUGHT FROM IT, THAT YE MAY KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD WHICH I COMMAND YOU.  DEUTERONOMY 4:2 KING JAMES. 

3.  THE PROSPERITY MESS AND MESSAGE IS BEING TAUGHT INSTEAD OF THE SALVATION MESSAGE.  

The pastors, that are so caught up in this prosperity message, are going to be judged severely by God.  Because Christ did not say tell them how to get rich.  He said, preach the gospel, so that they can be saved.  The prosperity message so deviates from what Christ did, who He is, and is very misleading.  God will stop it, I am sure.  But you my sister or brother in Christ, you need to stand up for this truth, and tell these fake prosperity messengers they are wrong.  

WHOSE MOUTHS MUST BE STOPPED, WHO SUBVERT WHOLE HOUSES, TEACHING THINGS WHICH THEY OUGHT NOT, FOR FILTHY LUCRES SAKE.  TITUS 1;7  King James.  

This is what Christ told us to do:

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.  HE THAT BELIEVETH AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED; BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED.  MARK 16:15-16  King James. 

4.  MANY CHRISTIANS DO NOT UPHOLD GODS LAWS HIS COMMANDMENTS

I see it often.  Many Christians have been taught that they do not need Gods laws. WRONG! They think that because of what Christ did, and they accepted him thats it and they don’t need to do anything else.  They are free from the law, saved by grace.  Yes, we are saved by grace.  But the only law we are free from is the law of sin in death.

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

And what I find ironic about the stinking thinking they get from that.  They don’t read the rest of the Bible.  There are many scriptures that attest to Gods law. Where we are reminded about the law.  That one can even be happy if they have the law.  They think God flip flopped from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  He changes not! And that’s so wrong, no wonder many Christians are not a testimony of truth, because they deny Gods laws.  

Christ told us, He did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it.  Read, these scriptures folks.  Go to Psalms 119.  Read it in its entirety, it is one of the longest chapters in the bible.  But God so wanted us to understand His law.  Is His Holy word.  So if you are a Christian you can get back right with God.  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW, OR THE PROPHETS:  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY BUT TO FULFILL.  MATTHEW 5:17 King James.  

5.  IS LOVE AN INDICATOR?

There are wolves in sheeps clothing.  I meet and talk with them all the time.  And you have to test and try the spirits, or you will be deceived.  

BELOVED, BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD:  BECAUSE MANY FALSE PROPHETS ARE GONE OUT INTO THE WORLD.  I John 4:1  King James.  

Look again at the word they are using.  Look and try the spirits.  Do they walk in love, as Christ commanded us?  Because if they do not, they are not truth.  That is always an indicator.  I meet and have dealt with the meanest, most religious people, who have called me a sister  in Christ.  And then their fruit, is so satanic, its actually scary to meet people like that.  I don’t follow people I follow Christ, for this very reason, but when I see them turn on me, and the love is not there, I know, they have revealed who they really are.

A NEW COMMANDMENT I GIVE UNTO YOU, THAT YE LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, THAT YE ALSO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  John 13:34-35  King James. 

6. TRUE REPENTANCE WITHOUT WORKS IS NOT BEING REMINDED BY CHRISTIANS OR PASTORS.  

I never hear a message on repentance.  And many think it is a one time deal  NO! ITS NOT!  Look we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Gods word tells us we will reap what we sow.  And when we do not repent, that gives the enemy, a legal right to attack us.  We always need to get right with God.  And I recommend repenting, even daily.  We have to study ourselves.  We have to see, that only true repentance clears the slate, breaks curses, for what Christ did on the cross for us.  

We are to work out our salvation with fear. Yes, works, where are your works?  Faith without works is dead!  

EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE.  James 2:17  King James. 

Your salvation is not a legal right to sin again.  You have to see this.  It will make so much of a difference.  But if you are not right with God, I don’t believe you will have an anointing to minister to others, because you have not truly repented to God yourself.  My thoughts, but He says, that He will not hear our prayers, because sin is evident.  If you have not repented, for even a thought, how do you expect God to answer your prayers?  REPENT DAILY.  

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  ISAIAH 59:2  King James.  

IF THEY SHALL FALL AWAY, TO RENEW THEM AGAIN UNTO REPENTANCE; SEEING THEY CRUCIFY TO THEMSELVES THE SON OF GOD AFRESH, AND PUT HIM TO AN OPEN SHAME.  Hebrews 6:6  King James.  

7. CHRISTIANS ARE NOT TAUGHT THE FEAR OF GOD NOR DO THEY FEAR GOD  

I will close with this last thought, but it is very obvious, many Christians do not fear God. I hear some say, yes, I reverence Him, I respect Him, but they have no fear of God.  And to me, that is very dangerous territory.  Very dangerous, see you are in a prideful place when you don’t fear God.  

He controls everything.  In this life, and in the after life, and to play with that thought, is to me dangerous.  You are playing with your soul.  Besides your life.  You will not be a true witness to Christ, unless you begin to understand the fear of God.  

To me, it is one of the healthiest things I can speak, proclaim, to God, to other Christians, because then they understand I fear God.  I am not trying to mislead, or take advantage of anybody in this lifetime, because I understand the fear of God.  It goes back to that we reap what we sow.  

And I have had poor judgement, I will be the first to acknowledge that, in many ways.  But I have the fear of God now.  And it will make a difference in your faith. I know, according to Galatians 6:7 God is not mocked. Please look it up yourself in a King James.    

When I try to witness to people, and they knock my faith, again, they don’t know what Christ has done for me.  But I warn them, even there, be careful.  Do not mock God.  Have some fear of God, because one never knows.  And if you have offended God, through the Holy spirit, well you are in some dangerous territory.  He sees everything, knows everything we do.

But if you are a Christian, and you have no fear of God, you are missing it.  You are deceived by the devil himself.  And he started that crap with Adam and Eve, when he lied to her.  Don’t let the devil lie to you about that.

LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER:  FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN.  Ecclesiastes 12:13  KING JAMES. 

So I will close with these thoughts.  But I hope you are inspired, to start being a witness someone who can win souls for Christ.  To pull someone out of hells fire.  Its not easy, but you have to remember we are in a battle.  There are lost souls out there, who will not know Christ, unless you tell them to turn to God.  

And I know that you may not feel equipped to always speak the truth, but you have to try.  You cannot go silent.  You have to use what you know, and what God has given you.  Because we will be judged by God.  I know it.  

I fear God, even just in that.  Start growing my brothers and sisters in Christ, pray, daily, read your King James bible, yes repent, but grow, so others can see so you can proclaim.  Look what the Lord has done for me.  

I tell you all of this, because I know that I know there is a God, and I will not be silent in this, enough of the devil deceiving people.  Enough of Gods glory being diminished.  Its in my heart, to try and win souls.  Is it in yours?  If not maybe, you need to start over again…

AND THEY THAT BE WISE SHALL SHINE AS THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE FIRMAMENT; AND THEY THAT TURN MANY TO RIGHTEOUSNESS AS THE STARS FOR EVER AND EVER. DANIEL 12:3 King James.

GOD IS HEALING YOUR WOUNDS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4086.jpeg

FOR I WILL RESTORE HEALTH UNTO THEE, AND I WILL HEAL THEE OF THY WOUNDS, SAITH THE LORD, BECAUSE THEY CALLED THEE AN OUTCAST, SAYING THIS IS ZION, WHOM NO MAN SEEKETH AFTER.  JEREMIAH 30:17  KJV.  

What a beautiful promise, from God. Thank you Lord, I sure feel like I can relate to this.  So I will receive that.  

Spiritual wounds, emotional wounds, we can get them.  We can even get them after we have been saved.  By our Lord, Jesus.  But He is not the one who wounds us. 

Wounds from people, family, friends.  

These wounds sometimes, do not manifest themselves right away, but something can trigger a wound, to be exposed, and the bleeding starts all over again.

I have dealt with emotional wounds, myself, and I have had some wounds open up again.  Where, I just seem to really be my own worse enemy.  

WOE IS ME FOR MY HURT! MY WOUND IS GRIEVIOUS; BUT I SAID TRULY THIS IS A GRIEF, AND I  MUST BEAR IT.  JEREMIAH 10:19  KJV.  

It sometimes is a  learned behavior sometimes, and well, we really do have to look at our Lord, for guidance in these matters.  We have to see, what we are doing.

For me, I am a warrior.  In a lot of ways, but I have to be so careful about that, because it is not healthy always to be in that mode.  Things sometimes have triggered that in me, and many friends, or people do not understand that, so they keep their distance, and yet I sure could use a good friend now and then.  

But at this point, lately friends seem to elude me.  I have lost a lot of friends lately, who do not want anything to do with me.  I don’t blame them.  I respect people, in the sense, that I don’t chase them either.   But that has wounded me.  

ALL MY INWARD FRIENDS ABHORRED ME: AND THEY WHOM I LOVED ARE TURNED AGAINST ME.  JOB 19:19  KJV

See, I try to offer grace with their own wounds.  But when grace is not extended to me, I can let go.  Yet, I have to study myself, and I have to see, where I have gone wrong.  And I know sometimes, I can see, that I am not flexible.  I have made mistakes in friendship. Being too blunt. And yes being blunt can hurt others.  Though, that was not my intention.  So I repent. But when you believe in something, like I do in God, I cannot compromise that.  So, it makes me lose friends.  

TO HIM THAT IS AFFLICTED PITY SHOULD BE SHEWED FROM HIS FRIEND; BUT HE FORSAKETH THE FEAR OF THE ALMIGHTY.  JOB 6:14  KJV

So, I rely on God, He is my greatest friend.  In fear of God.  But I do pray for these friends, who have seemed to have walked away from me.  

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

I have learned, sometimes God will use people, to help us, heal our wounds.  But sometimes, its best, to keep your distance as well from toxic people, or people, who do not understand, you’re calling, you, or your own wounds.  

When I was younger, and I had walked away from God, those were the toughest years of my life, because I did not have God in my life.  People don’t understand, when they choose to eliminate God from their life, they are actually choosing, to let the enemy in.  His goal, is to kill, steal, and destroy.   He wants to wound you.  He wants to stop the plan God has in your life.  He wants to distract you.  

We have to see, God did not intend that to be.  He intended for us, to rely on Him, to have a life abundantly, we must do things His way.  His ways, are not meant to control us, or for him to fence us in.  But when you seek Him, in obedience, it does go well.  He gives us a choice.  He is a gentleman, He does not make us do anything.  But you have to choose Him.  

I just want to encourage you to seek God.  Truly seek Him.  Stop, look at what you are doing to yourself.  Don’t let old habits in. I am writing this for myself as well today.

I feel wounded lately.   As an American, a Patriot, I have felt the need to fight. There are things going on in our nation right now with this wall, that is causing me to fight.  To fight for our country, for truth, for hypocrisy, to go away, and yet, I have to pray more.  I hate seeing people be so mean.  To our President, to others, and I hate seeing division.  So I have been fighting.  My goodness, though, it seems to bring out the worse in me lately. 

My wounds, my own personal struggles, seem to be getting in the way, and I realize only God can take care of myself, and our country.

When I realized, I needed God a few years back.  I cried out to Him.  He came to me.  I sensed, the Lord, binding my feet, putting me on His shoulder.  So I could get to know Him.  To hear His voice. I sensed Him, taking salve, and putting  it on my wounds.  Cleaning the wounds.  

Now this is something I want you to take to heart.  But He reminded me, that my problems happened, because I had walked away.  Not because He left me.  It was as if, He was teaching me the lesson, to never do that again.  And I will not.  We are like little lambs, we can wander off, but I realize for me, I will never and can never leave His side.

There is an enemy.  Who wants to distract you.  To take your eyes off of Jesus.  To look at your wounds.  Instead of God.  Then you could have a pity party, and that’s not healthy, or good for you.  Because you will be in that party all by yourself.  

We may not always understand.  But we have to do our part in obeying God.  Seeking Him.  Departing from things, people, that may not always have that sense of who God is, and let not their toxicity get in you.  Especially in those wounds that are open.  See the enemy will use people, even people you love.  

It becomes a wound.  If you are not aware of it.  I sense this for me, anyway.  

I must stay close to my Lord.  And maybe someday, like even today, I can let the Lord heal my wounds, and I can stay close to Him, and really see myself bear fruit for Him, in love as well.  

I just want to encourage you.  I know, Gods ways are not our ways.  And sometimes, we say and think, if God loved me, why do I go through these things?  

Because friend, in these times, we are tested, we can also grow, we can also change to understand, why and who He is, and sometimes, if we are not “wounded” we cannot become who we are meant to be by Him.  He prunes us.  He corrects us. Whom He loves, He corrects.  He loves me.  But sometimes it hurts.  

He loves you too.  

God bless you, I pray your wounds, are healed.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

I AM NOT TRYING TO BRAG BUT I KNOW GOD PERSONALLY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0424.jpegI am not trying to brag but I do know God personally.  And one of the reasons, I know He exists, is because He corrects me.  

I have known Him, for many years.  I remember, I knew Him, as a little girl.  I was fascinated with Him, loved Him, talked to Him, I even used to write to Him as a child.  But then when I grew up more, my expectation was different.  He is not a genie.  He does not give us everything we want, and He has his standards.  He did not do that for me. 

I stopped believing in Him, for a while.

Those were the darkest, years of my life.  I stopped our relationship, it wasn’t Him, it was me.  

One time, over forty years ago….I was getting high, won’t say on what, but it was bad for me.  I saw the evil one.  It told me, if I was seeing him, the evil one, I was doing something wrong.  I began searching for God again.  I thought then, if I saw the evil one, why wasn’t I seeing who God is?  It was not rocket science.  There is evil in this world, so there must be good, and God, and because of that, I began searching for God, because He was hiding from me.  Yes, I said it, God hides.  He tests us.  

AND I WILL SURELY HIDE MY FACE IN THAT DAY FOR ALL THE EVILS WHICH THEY SHALL HAVE WROUGHT, IN THAT THEY ARE TURNED UNTO OTHER gods.  Deuteronomy 31:18  KJV.  

See, if we are not seeking God, and only God, we will be making something an idol.  We will not be giving Him, all our love, attention, honor and respect.  He requires it, and only Him, are we to serve.  He is a jealous God.  

I was not doing that, which was right in His sight.  I lived between the world, and God, walking a fine line on a fence.  I saw the error of my ways.  I think thats why I have grown.  But I don’t take my relationship with Him for granted.  I know we reap what we sow.  I know, because I have reaped harsh lessons.  Harsher things, then your average person.  I won’t say, what, but God knows.  

But through it all, He always has been there.  And when I seek Him, He reveals Himself to me.  Shows me, things.  Gives me discernment, understanding.  Joy, hope.  Provision.  But I don’t search for His hand, I search for His face.  I search to please Him.  

I remember when He showed me, not to ask for money, for my ministry.  Because I did.  I thought all of these pastors, ask for money, I should as well.  But He showed me how wrong that was.  That it would pollute the work I would do for Him, so I don’t ask for money, and in fact, even though, I have written three books, I don’t peddle myself or His word.   I try to help others freely in this.   

I know, when I don’t please Him.  I try not to get puffed up, with anything He gives me, or shows me but sometimes, I do come off harsh, and well, He puts me in my place.  I accept it.  I know, my faults, I know where I can go wrong.  I have been rebellious, I understand that.  

He taught me the difference between religion and relationship with Him.  Religion, is rules, regulations, traditions rituals made by men or groups.  I don’t have that.  I have relationship, with my Lord, and it is very sweet.  To know Him.  Based on what He did on that cross for me, but my part is to obey, love Him, and seek Him.  He will do the rest.  But I don’t abuse grace.  I know it came at a high cost.  I have my part.  

I know His laws.  And many don’t get this, but God is a legal God.  If you have been taught this phony baloney about grace, only, you are being deceived.  You do not have a license to sin, by grace.  

The only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death.  

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

And if you really want happiness heed this scripture as well.  

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

We are free from the law of sin and death. Not His commandments.  Not His laws.  He did not flip flop from the Old Testament, to the New Testament.  Christ did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it.  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW, OR THE PROPHETS:  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY BUT TO FULFIL.  MATTHEW 5:17  KJV.  

But I know who He is, and He shows me the beauty of who He is.  In small and little things, as well as big things.  But when anything I sense darkness in, or there is no light, I know to go back and repent.  

Repentance is one of the sweetest things He has taught me.  To be humble, not proud.  Daily repentance, keeps my slate clean.  

His word, my King James bible, brings light.  I remember when He showed me the difference between Bibles.  

I had a strange situation, once, where, someone was plagiarizing my poems.  I used to write poems, by the hundreds.  They were called a “Prayer of Hope”.  They were scripture, and a poem, and a prayer.  I have them on file.  Maybe someday I will publish them again.  I don’t think too many are on the internet, because a network, I had them on, destroyed the files. 

Anyway, in this situation, someone plagiarized me.  A woman, was claiming my poems, and saying she wrote them.  She did not even try and change them, she took them in total format. I was so upset.  God spoke to my heart, and told me, I understand.  You see, when someone takes my word, they plagiarize my thoughts, and it bothers me too, but its only the devil.  He promised to take care of it for me.  It released me.  

I thought that was strange, that he told me that, but then He began to show me, how different bible versions, were being plagiarized and how the devil was in the deception.  See, Gods word is holy, and when we search in there, and disregard bible verses, that tell us not to change add, or delete Gods word, that is disobedience.  The anointing will not be there.  

Any way, God showed me that.  Those verses, just for the sake of your understanding is…. Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19, that actually warns someone will not be allowed to the Holy city, and could have their name removed from the book of life.  Nothing to be messing with.  Get a King James.

Anyway, I can write so much more about who God is.  But I just know, I love Him, and I know I am human, I make mistakes, but I do try and serve Him, with all my heart, soul, and being.  I never want anybody to follow me, but to follow Christ.  If I show you something, I just pray God gets the glory, and will give you the desire to seek Him.  

See, He is very real.  I know it.  I actually get a little indignant, when someone says He is a fable, or make believe.  He is not.  They have not walked in my shoes.  They do not know what He has done for me.  But He has been there.  Saved me, spoke things to my heart.  

He actually introduced me to my husband.  Years ago, I was at a night club.  I wanted to leave.  The Lord spoke so clearly in my ear, He said, “don’t go.”  It kind of shocked me.  Moments after that, I met my husband.  And it is another prayer answered.   The many times, He has answered my prayers.  I cannot even count them.  But I will seek Him.  In prayer.  

He has come to my rescue so many times.  Healed me, so many times.  Taught me things.  He is beautiful.  I sense His spirit even now.  Encouraging me.   But yes strict with me, but I go with the flow now.  

I don’t fight it.  I know when it will be all done with for me on this earth, He will reach out for me.  I know it.  But while I am here on earth, I want to do all I can for His Kingdom.  I want to reach out to the lost, I want to give someone understanding.  But I won’t accept anyone mocking Him, or my relationship with Him.  I can walk away from that.  And I have.  

And I know if I kneel before Him, I can stand before anyone.  I know He is not a respecter of persons.  So that gives me confidence, no matter who they are.  I have seen him come against my enemies.  I won’t say how, but He has been my defense.  

I try to be loyal to God, if I offended Him, that would just grieve me.  Knowing what He did on the cross for me.  I don’t take my salvation for granted.  I fear God.  He taught me that as well.  So even though, I boast in Him, I do not take anything for granted.  

Yes, I know Him, I am not trying to brag.  But I know Him personally.  I just pray to bless Him.  

MY SOUL SHALL MAKE HER BOAST IN THE LORD:  THE HUMBLE SHALL HEAR THEREOF AND BE GLAD.  PSALMS 34:2  KJV. 

Well anyway, just sharing some of my thoughts today.  I am so grateful.  What a mighty God I serve.  He has taught me to love, and forgive others.  So poison won’t stay in my soul.  

Anyway….I hope you know Him too.  I want to encourage you.  No matter what you are going through, God can get you through.  He can write a new page for you.  But make sure you are on the same page with Him, in a King James.  

Blessings, and love,
