WHEN YOUR FRIENDS WON’T BELIEVE YOU ABOUT THE KING JAMES YET YOU CALL THEM BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4060.jpgWHEN YOUR FRIENDS WON’T BELIEVE YOU ABOUT THE KING JAMES YET YOU CALL THEM BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
If I challenged almost all my friends, who do not believe in the King James, I would be in a fight daily.
 
Yet, there are days, I see the deception, and I do speak up. Some days, I just shake my head.
 
But you know what? If you know this truth, about the King James, you can tell your friends, please tell them…. Base it on Deuteronomy 4:2, that tells us don’t change it, add to it, or delete it. Proverbs 30:5-6, says we are liars if we do. And then there is the harshest warning, Revelation 22:18-19. That tell us, one could lose their right in the lambs book of life. That they will be denied access to the Holy city. Look it up in a King James…..
 
Believe God folks, this is very serious business. Some days, I just shake my head. Sad, that so many in the body of Christ has been deceived by the enemy. That is the enemies goal, to steal your crown. Cant we tell by the times we are in, that the enemy has deceived even the elect?
 
FOR THERE SHALL ARISE FALSE CHRISTS, AND FALSE PROPHETS, AND SHALL SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS; INSOMUCH, THAT, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT. MATTHEW 24:24 KING JAMES.
 
If we obeyed God first just in word, we would see victories, but the body of Christ is now, so disjointed. We just not are all on the same page with God. And that’s just sad….
 
I have just come to a place, in my own walk, where I know, this truth, that I know that I know it, but I just choose to walk in love. Even if I am rejected by a brother or a sister in Christ, and I have been. I speak it in love, in fact I just did….
 
This person, is a bright, articulate, very knowledgeable person, even about Gods word. But makes fun of those who are KJV only, in the sense that he believes you have to have proof.
 
See, I know the difference. If I had not used those corrupt versions, I probably would still be using them. But God corrected me, and I saw, with eyes wide open, the corruption, the deception, the lies, from these fake bibles.
 
You know what, maybe I am simple minded, but the proof, is when God says don’t change it. Thats all the proof I need, to depart from Bibles that are corrupted. To obey God. Its not that hard, and I don’t need proof. I just need to hear His voice.
 
And I did, and I obeyed. This has increased my faith…
 
And when I use His word, my King James, I know I am on the same page with God. Because I do hear His voice. Its called discernment.
 
Its just sad, I so want to minister to people. But if they rejected Christ, they will reject those who bring truth. Christ told us that. So I understand now.
 
But as long as He gives me utterance, I will proclaim that the King James bible is the Holy Bible, it is anointed, it is truth, is powerful, and it is His love, revealed…..
 
I HAVE NOT DEPARTED FROM THY JUDGMENTS: FOR THOU HAST TAUGHT ME. HOW SWEET ARE THY WORDS UNTO MY TASTE! YEA SWEETER THAN HONEY TO MY MOUTH. THROUGH THY PRECEPTS I GET UNDERSTANDING: THEREFORE I HATE EVERY FALSE WAY. PSALM 119:102-104. KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE.

STOP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If you don’t stop looking for love in all the wrong places, the end result of your life will be trashy….Strong words, but truth, please wake up!

I really feel such a strong desire to write about this.  And when I do, I know, its from God Almighty.  So, I pray, my experiences, this that, what I am about to share with you, helps you, to realize, God does not want you looking for love in all the wrong places, as well.

I am older now, my experiences, have taught me many things.  But I learned, and I learned the hard way, that one should:  

“STOP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES.”

Please allow me to elaborate.  

Right now, I am not looking for love.  I have a wonderful husband, and son, for over 30 years, we have been married, content, and in love, and we have our son, and so I am not looking for a mate.  

But when I was single, when I was growing up, I made many mistakes and had terrible judgment in this area.  I looked for love in all the wrong places.

I had low self-esteem.  I grew up, with my mom, raising me.  I had a father, I knew who he was.  He was a good man.  But he and my mother, did not get along, and were divorced, when I was just a child. 

So, I did not have that father figure to guide me.  

I have written about this in some similar posts, as my secret to true love.  But, I truly believe this.  That many of us, can get so lonely, so desperate for companionship, acceptance, a need to fit in, with others, that we can look for love in all the wrong places.

And I am not just talking about intimacy, or finding love, but just even in relationships, with friends, groups, etc.  We can look for acceptance, and actually compromise, who we are, because we can get so desperate.  It will distort your judgment. That you can even look for it in alcohol, or drugs.  Don’t do that, it will just make the problem worse, so that you cannot have a clear head in these matters.  

And I will elaborate on that as well.

But I know this worked for me, and years ago, after trial and error, I realized I had to change my method, or my approach to finding love.  I wanted true love. I went to God.  

He told me I needed to repent for my sins.  He showed me what He did on that cross for me.  He counseled me.  You know, He is my greatest friend, counselor, therapist, and adviser.  Theres none like God.  He is not imaginary.  He is very real.  He helps me, and helped me then as well.  

I began searching for truth, from my King James Bible.  And anyone that knows me, knows, I do not recommend any other word. Because it is not changed, or corrupted, as scripture tells us not to do.

Anyway….I began to see His ways, are not our ways.  The way of the world.  

The way of the world looks at love, as something cheap.  Its not.  Love em, and leave em, take what you want, thats not holy, and thats what you get.  Something that is not precious, something that is used, and thats not how God intended it to be for us.  Because He did not create us to have “trashy” spirits.  

So when I saw this, that love is not free, in that regard.  I began praying for the right mate.  I determined, that if God brought me a mate, I would do things His way.  Not mine, or the way of the world.  I promised Him, I would do things His way, and I do try.  

When I met my husband, I laid out some rules.  Because I liked him. And I did see potential.  But I did not want to ruin it with sex, or short changing myself, to try and please someone.  Who might, just take pleasure, and then leave.  Anyway, like they say, why buy the cow, when you get the milk for free?  

So, I told this wonderful man, I met, I wanted to do things right.  The way of the Lord.  So, he listened, and that gave him, respect toward me. 

Well long story short, a few months later, he asked me to marry him.  We got married, by holy matrimony, and we are trying in the way of the Lord, to live happily ever after.  

Has it been easy? No not always, but we work at it, we cherish each other, and honor each other.  Because we honored God to wait.   Because we did wait, and we honored God, we have a supernatural bond, that cannot be broken.  

Now, because I am older, I want you to see, by my experiences, that you can have true love, but you can also see, by what I share, that you need to stop looking for love, in all the wrong places.

I am also talking about just fitting in.  Or having friends.  I know myself.  I am a pretty loyal person.  But I have not always had that returned to me.  Right now, I just have a couple of people, that I call friends, that I love, but people change, and I have seen that in my life.  So, I don’t always trust that.  People can come and go…..

And, I don’t rely on people, to fill a void for me.  That void, is only met, as I seek God.  As I pray, as I read my King James Bible, as I stay away from any kind of sin.

I don’t even rely on family.  But I am very grateful for my immediate family.  That I have now.  

But when I say that, I am talking about other family relations.  See, it was just me and mama.  Daddy passed away first, even though, he did not raise me, I knew him.  He provided what he could.  Mama raised me, but life was hard on her.  I had no brothers and sisters.  I don’t even have family on any side, that communicates with me, besides an aunt.

So, I have adopted people in the past, loved them, like family.  But they abandoned me.  Well, like I said, people can change.  

But I also now look at what people represent.  Do they compromise values?  Do they respect themselves?  Do they lie?  Are they mean?  Do they have integrity?  I am careful now not, to just be a friend with anybody, any more.  I value myself that much, that if someone wants to be my friend, they have to be for real, in having some good values.  ….They have to prove it, to me, now.  

Any way, I feel like there is someone, I am talking to.  Someone, who wants to fit in.  And you are about to compromise yourself, or values, that make you special, in Christ.  Don’t. 

The other day, because I am a Conservative Christian, on social media, someone told me something, and it kind of hurt my feelings, but it made me realize the truth too, because I was supporting something.   This someone told me; you will never fit in with them, because you are Hispanic, and you may agree with them, but they will not accept you.

And that stung.  Because I am an American.  I have legal rights, as an American.  Born and raised here, with indigenous roots.  So….I know who I am.  I am fairly educated, even though in some areas of that, I do lack, because I did not go to college.  

But I realize, even in some Christian circles, I will never be accepted.  By some.  And I am not the kind of person, that looks for race, as my outlet.  So, I don’t use it for, or against anyone either.  But some do.  

But it made me realize, I don’t need to go looking for love, in all the wrong places.  Or even in political circles.  Or even in the body of Christ.  In fact, sadly there are those in the body of Christ, who have hurt me the most.  

I have tried, to be accepted, even in my writings, as my gift.  And hoping, doors would open for me, and they have been shut.  Why?  I don’t know?  Is it the race card, I don’t know, but I know, by some, I will not fit in.  My writings, publishers, have turned away.  If people share my thoughts, thats great, but I don’t ask any more.  

So, I don’t try and second guess any more, because life is too short, to keep banging on doors, that just won’t open. And I don’t compromise by flattery to have those doors open either.  Though, I am nice, polite, I don’t beg. 

I don’t go looking any more, for acceptance, or for favor, or to fit in.  I don’t need drugs, or anything to be a comfort.  

I am content, with what God has given me, in my family, and in Him.  No, I wanted more, in this life I live.  But I see I did reap, what I sowed, in other ways, but now, I don’t care to try, to please people. 

Yet, I see so many hurting, lonely people, that I have compassion for, and the love of Christ rises in me, to want to help, but I also know, in all honesty, we reap what we sow.  

If I could sit a young woman down, and talk to her, maybe she could understand. But since I am not in a position to even be in that “circle” maybe what I write, here, could help her, or him, not to sell yourself.  Not to give yourself away.  

There are valuable attributes, to claim, when you respect yourself. And, no matter where you are, you do not have to give yourself away, to be a part of something good, or great.  

Now, I know God has taught me this, to respect myself, but it did come with some heartache.  But I know, where ever He may lead me, I don’t have to look for love.  I don’t have to beg people to accept me.  I don’t have to compromise my values, in Christ, for acceptance, or to be a part of something.  

I don’t.  And I will not.  

Please just know, you need to “Stop Looking for Love in all the wrong places.”  Don’t take anything to fill that void, clear your spirit.  By not polluting it, or your body. Go to God, He will fill that void in your life.  He knows what you need, He does not make you suffer, just to suffer, but He will correct you, because He loves you. And so suffering does sometimes come with correction.  

Ensure your salvation with Christ.  And I would tell anybody that.  Hell is real, even on earth.  Even if you were a Christian at one time.  Rededicate yourself to Christ.  

Repentance, always clears the slate.  Talk to Him, He is your greatest friend.  You don’t need to beg anybody, or compromise yourself to be with people.  You may long for it, but when God closes one door, He will open another.  

And maybe thats where I am at right now, because I see some doors closing, even now, that I won’t elaborate on, but I am so hopeful, for just a new beginning for me and my family.  

But people will not always be happy for you.  Nor will they support you, because they do not see the value in you, because they don’t see the value in themselves as well.  Some people will purposely try to hold you back.  But you don’t have to give them that advantage over you, if you do things the way of the Lord. 

So move on, and let God guide you.  Your heart will mend, if you do things His way.  Your peace, will be fulfilled, and you will find your heart mended, and that void will go away.

Stop looking for love in all the wrong places…

Just remember this.  God is love.  He is Holy.  Love, real love, can only be fulfilled by Him, and through Him.  Anything else, sorry to say, is not pure, its not good, its not worthy of you losing your soul over. Anything else, could be counterfeit.  If He is not in it.  For you would be missing, the love God could give you.   

BELOVED, LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  FOR LOVE IS OF GOD: AND EVERY ONE THAT LOVETH IS BORN OF GOD, AND KNOWETH GOD.  HE THAT LOVETH NOT KNOWETH NOT GOD; FOR GOD IS LOVE.  IN THIS WAS MANIFESTED THE LOVE OF GOD TOWARD US, BECAUSE  THAT GOD SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH HIM.  

I John 4:7-9 King James.  

I hope this helps someone.  Feel free to share this, or to comment, below.  I will gladly pray for you.  

Blessings, in Christ,  Elena Ramirez 

 

WHEN THE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT KNOW THEY ARE SINNING BY AN AGENDA ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1106I like to get to the root of things.  I may see the symptom of this, or that, or the other, but I always wonder, what caused this?  So I try to search and see what is the root of that matter.  

Sometimes, I do that with communicating as well, I go straight to the source, and usually that leads me straight to what God says, not what man says.  

So I ask you, as a Christian, are you caught up in an agenda, that may cause you to sin?  I am asking you to look at the root of why you support an agenda.  

I seem to see that a lot lately.  In political matters as well, and well I will save that conversation for another time perhaps.  

But, I do notice that people, tend to get passionate about something, and everything may point in one direction, but is that where it started?

See, the enemy is very deceitful.  And he may bring an “agenda” to your attention, and you may see something, that you think is right, and you may begin to become involved in it.  

But as a Christian, you are commanded to obey God, so you need to pray for discernment.  And you are to be very careful, because the enemy, will use people, even people, you respected or honored, to deceive you.  Because they were deceived as well.  Or even people in the body of Christ.  

I learned a long time ago, to avoid this.  Follow Christ.  Not people.  They can become a form of idolatry, that the enemy will use, to deceive you.  I don’t follow people.  I don’t support anyone, and I am careful, even if I like some in the body of Christ.  

Because all honor, glory, and praise should go to God, not people!  

Recently, I saw a prominent pastor, be very passionate about a matter, and he seemed to speak some truth about the matter, but what really got my “red flag” up, was that he became disloyal to someone, he had supported.  He suddenly became very outspoken, yet, he seemed to discount, other indicators, of why, it was happening.  Even in legal matters.  

It all of a sudden, became about us.  And he used the body of Christ, as us.  And when ever, I see, any kind of statement, that dismisses, Christ, and it becomes, “self” I see the enemies hand in this.  Self, is prideful, it is jealous, and it is disobedient to God.  You have to get to the root of it, and see the symptoms that are symbolic, in some matters.  

He got caught up in an agenda.

And agendas, can be good, but if there are indicators, that go against what God says, then you need to be careful.  

Look at the fruit.  You will know them, by their fruit.  

MATTHEW 7:20  KING JAMES

WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

And I think this is why I am writing about this today.  I saw his fruit.

Is there an “agenda” that you see, that you support, that you even think is right, but you then become a hater?  Do you start defending an agenda, and throw away, what Christ says?  Like loving one another?  Do you get so caught up in it, that you get on the wrong side, and begin fighting?  Against other Christians, brothers and sisters?  Do you become an accuser?  The Bible tells us there is a place in hell for the accuser.  Read Revelation 12:10 from a King James.  

Now, I know, there are wolves in sheeps clothing, and I know, that there are deceivers, so you do need to be careful.  And many say they are Christians, but when I see, hate, or I see, hypocrisy, or lies, I speak up.  Or I see a tendency, to twist scripture.  Or only pick some of the word, and not all of it. I mark, them, and have nothing to do with anyone, who wants to find a loop hole, or dismiss what God says.  

Because the goal, of the enemy is to trip you, and steal your crown.  And don’t fool yourself, salvation can be lost.  If sin, is un-repented.  

But, you need to see what God says first.  Don’t play, with sin, and think there is grace.  God will judge. 

I have to do a check, on myself, now and then, because I will be honest, I have made mistakes in judgement.  

But I always have to look at the fruit.  At myself, and with others.  And agendas, can be nice, but if there are “hypocritical” tendencies, from someone, who has an agenda, and they try to bring it to your attention, I am like, “Ugh No!” thats not what my King James Bible says.  

I become very literal in some matters.  Is money involved? Because money, can be the root of evil. Is that why you like the agenda?  There are check point questions you need to ask yourself about any agenda.  

And the enemy will even use the word of God against someone, to trip them, into an agenda.  Don’t fall for it.  Especially, if they do not practice, what they preach.  Thats so hypocritical.  They say one thing, but yet, do not honor something else, thats related.  You have to see the hypocrisy.  And then search the King James bible yourself.  If you are wrong, admit it. 

I truly believe, now is a time, to pray, to seek the truth, from our King James Bibles, see what God says on the matter, and look at the fruit.  Stop, look, and listen.  And if you have to pull back.  Don’t get involved.  

Is an agenda, worth, losing your soul over?  No.  

Just be careful, “Just my thoughts,” on this matter.  

In Christ’s love, Elena Ramirez 

DEALING WITH TRUST ISSUES AS A CHRISTIAN ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0002.jpgDo you deal with trust issues?   I am just talking about in life.  But even as a Christian, one can have issues, and challenges in these matters of trust.

See, I am a Christian, and I had to learn how to trust God, from the beginning.  I grew up, with a very good mother, who loved me, but she had “major” trust issues.  

She had been damaged by many, and she trusted no one.  So she was suspicious  and very on guard.  So I grew up with that, yet, I knew it was unhealthy and very off balance, for lack of a better word, to be so untrusting.  

Because it can hinder relationships.  It can cause fear, and God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  

So, I learned to trust God.  

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

Look at this scripture, its very instructional.  And thats what Gods holy King James word will do, it will instruct, it comforts, it guides, it leads us closer to God, to even understand.  But its holy word.  Other bible versions, are someone else’s understanding not God, by the changing of it, and the words they use.  They make it no longer holy. Or anointed, and you really want the full power, and affect of holy word, from God Himself.  

But as you look at this scripture, we cannot, lean into our own understanding.  Get that quick, when it comes to “trusting.” 

We have to trust God, we have to do so, completely, without reservations, without question to God, though He is gracious enough to answer us, but something about having our faith, to “trust” God, releases something in us, that I call strength, and courage.  

Life is hard, and when people let you down, especially when you trust them, you do learn lessons in life.

I had a friend, who I loved dearly.  I never thought this person, would react the way she did, or do the things that she did in matters of respect.  Including her daughter.  Because I thought, I was part of the family, because of our friendship, we had in Christ.

But she hurt me.  And I really don’t want to get into all the details, or go on about it.  I think I have here, and its really an old issue, and I do want to be healed.  So I want to be careful about opening up an old wound.  

But it affected my trust.  And I even see myself, looking at other people that way, and think, are you going to hurt me too?  I have, done so, already, since this happened, and its not good.  

And I don’t want to blame others, for my experiences, in matters of trust.  But, I find, myself, trusting God more.  Asking for wisdom, and guidance, because I felt burned.  

I don’t think I can trust anybody like I did her, the damage is done.  Sure I forgive, but something changed in my heart, and well, like I said, I was brought up with that, negative energy, so I know, only God, can help me.  So its more of a challenge, now then ever.  

Have you ever noticed, the enemy tries to attack you in things, you have experienced?  Like a cycle it tries to come back.  Well I plead the blood of Jesus, aware, and commit to trust Him more.  To submit to God, resist the devil so he can flee. 

I don’t know where you are or if this will help.  But I share it, I write it, because I know who God is, and only He can help us with our issues of trust.  

As a Christian, I know this.  If you are not a Christian, I recommend you do give your heart to Christ.  Repent, for your own lack of doubt, or trust in God.  Or if you have caused someone, to hurt, because they trusted you, and you burned them.  Again read a King James, the anointing is there, for your faith, in anything.  

I don’t know how people do it, without God, without Christ.  I don’t want to find out.  See thats my reassurance in a world, that leaves Him out.  I won’t, ignore Him, because I do trust God, and thats the greatest strength, I get in life.  

Blessings, and love,

WHEN THE DEVIL WHISPERS DOUBT REBUKE HIM GO TO GOD GO BACK TO THE KING JAMES BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0564.jpgFrom the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth.  And even with a question.  Which brings doubt.  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1  King James.

See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.  

The battle will be in the mind.  We will be tossed to and fro.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See how that scripture talks about doctrine?

We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit.  From that tree.  And she gave the right answer.  But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.  

AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.  FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.  GENESIS 3:5  KJV.

What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.  

And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil?  Because He loves us that much.  So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses.  That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God. 

So we have to be aware of the enemies antics.  We have to remember when we doubt.  When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous.  Thats actually stupid.    So I don’t challenge what God says.  I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it.  That gives me hope.  That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth.  But Gods truth, will never let me down.  

SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH:  THY WORD IS TRUTH.  JOHN 17:17  KJV.  

What does God really say?  This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.  

Because they do make one question what God really says.  But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.  

I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings.  Of corrupt Bibles.  Since, I use a KJV.  I don’t get that confusion.  Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James.  Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying. 

Eve did not obey.  Adam did not obey.  But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better.  We do not have to question it.  But…by obedience.  Thats showing God we are obeying.  Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.

If you are in that battle of the mind.  In anything, go to God.  Rebuke the devil.  Thats a spirit of confusion.  And God is not the author of confusion.  

FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS.  I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.  

I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.

But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.

Always ask God. Always.  In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate.  So I can know…..

Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.

UNDERSTANDING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SPIRITUALISM AND MENTAL ILLNESS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1116.jpgFirst of all, as my disclaimer:

I am not a psychiatrist, I am not in the business, of telling anybody, why they have a mental illness.

But, I am someone who has learned so much from God.  And I have seen things in the spirit realm that have taught me, there is a connection between spiritualism and mental illness.  Or the battle in the mind.  The sense of no peace, the challenge of being stable.  Or unstable.  

It comes from two sources.  And you have to see this from the perspective of your own spirit.  Either good or evil.  God or the devil.  And the foundation of your mental health, will be determined by your spiritual health.  

Who rules your spirit? This is the question, you most definitely need to ask yourself.  To find out yourself within, who rules your soul?  Because this will determine your behavior, and your motives, your mental health, by your spiritualism.  

By the choices you make, with God, or the devil.  You have no other choice.  You may think you do, but it will always result from the consequences, of the choice to believe in God.  Or the enemy.  

By your choice….this is always a choice.  But the principles are in place, and will determine “fruit.”

To obey God, to take His commandments, His law to heart.  To fear God, to depart from evil, and to submit to God.  Or to give into the devil.  To disobey God.  With Temptations, disbelief, etc.  See the difference. 

Scripture tells us, “submit” to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  That key word, is “submitting” to God.  Until you do, you will have that battle in the mind.  See the enemy is a spirit of confusion.  He is known to come, kill, steal, and destroy.  He is a mocker.  He is jealous, he was of God, so he is also jealous if you try and make God your Lord and savior.  He wants to steal the glory from God.  

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

So, if you do not believe in God, you will be tossed to and fro.  That spirit, will dominate you, and your behavior, so that you may do things that are not kind, good, or even healthy for yourself.  The spirit, will lead you to do things, that are evil.  To even think evil.  You may have not acted on those thoughts, but they are there, and that is sin.  For lack of a better word.  So that will dictate to you, and control you, in what you do.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, TOSSED TO AND FRO, AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See the above scripture, reinforces what I am always saying about doctrine, because other bible versions are corrupt.  And it deceives.  You will be tossed to and fro, even if you think you are safe, your not, because your word is corrupt, if you use these fake versions.  

If a person, is totally submitted to Christ.  Even by the word they choose in a King James.  Wanting to obey God, fearing God of consequences of sin, prayerful, in a relationship, the spirit, of God, will lead.  There will be no mental illness.  

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.  

I don’t care what people think or try to dictate to me, I know the difference.  They have not walked in my shoes.  They may mock.  But God is not mocked, and they will reap that.  But I know, I have had my part, to try and please God.  To pray, to obey Him, His commandments.  To love….

You see, I was lost.  When I was lost that spirit, of the devil led me, and I made so many mistakes in judgment, and in my own personal life.  My moral code, was damaged, because I did not submit to God.  I actually had no moral code.  Or fear of God. Concerning consequences on earth, or if I had died.  And that is a very dangerous place to be.  Because we will all stand before God.  Hell is real.  Hell on earth is just as real.  I thank Him and praise Him that He saved me, taught me.  

But when God found me, and I recall the night, I had a revelation of who Christ was.  I submitted to God.  For your own revelation, think of what Christ did for you on that cross.  

Now you cannot, be partial in this, and just say you believe in God.  Because scripture tells us, even the devil believes in God. 

The key is totally giving your heart, life, mind, soul to God, so you can grow spiritually.  So you can have peace.  Scripture also tells us, that there is no peace to the wicked.  

Begin by repenting.  Even if you don’t think you have done anything wrong.  This cleans the slate.  Be humble in the sight of God.  Ask God to forgive you.  Even for unbelieving.   This is why I actually believe in daily repentance.  Because we can sin, even unknowingly.  and we all do sin, folks, and come short of the glory of God.  Our works, can be filthy rags….

The way to enrich your mind, is get a King James bible.  As you know, I do not support any other bible.  Because they are corrupted.  Exactly what the enemy wants you to do, so you get static.  You get part truth, part lie.  You will not grow, until you change your word.  And you may have a battle in the mind, until you do.

Stay away from things or situations, that feed your spirit.  Like evil movies.  Evil books, anything that can plant seeds of evil, or doubt in your mind.  Stay away from evil people.  Toxic people. 

You have to have the mind set, to want to please God.  And when you do you will be released, your eyes will be opened, and you can begin the process of healing mentally, because you are healing spiritually.  

If I start to watch a movie, or read a book, that I know has evil spiritualism, I put it away from me.  You don’t want to tempt yourself.  

And you don’t want to let in spirits, that have been cleansed back into your soul.  They will come in worse, in greater capacity, that is not great for your soul.  

THEN GOETH HE, AND TAKETH WITH HIMSELF SEVEN OTHER SPIRITS MORE WICKED THEN HIMSELF, AND THEY ENTER IN AND DWELL THERE:  AND THE LAST STATE OF THAT MAN IS WORSE THAN THE FIRST.  EVEN SO SHALL IT BE ALSO UNTIL THIS WICKED GENERATION.  MATTHEW 12:45  KJV.

The bottom line is, to be in fear of God, by choosing His Holy spirit, to guide you.  So, you can be healed mentally.  I truly believe that.  With all my heart.  See you fear God, so you don’t have to have fear in the mind of something or someone else.  Thats the key:

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.  II TIMOTHY 1:7.  KJV. 

I always recommend, finding help, if you are in that desperate place.  But God will help you, if you seek Him.  And I hope you find your way, take this to heart.  Because Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  Read John 14:6 from a King James.  

Feel free to share this post, you might help someone, see why they act the way they do.  You might save a soul.

UNDERSTANDING WHY MANY ARE TURNED OFF WITH RELIGION ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If I was searching for religion, I would want truth.  I would want something, that would bring me closer to God.  So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants.  How to survive.  

More then anything how to thrive in life.    

There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.  

Or how some get misled.  Or fall into cults.  Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him.  Yet they get misled.  

First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:

Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups.  These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.  

Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.  

These people leave out one great element, and that is love.  Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust.  I am talking about holy love.  Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments.  And just Him.  And loving others.  Strange how they leave that love out.  And that it is a commandment.  They leave it out.  They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love.  You have to listen carefully.  

The sad thing though, is many claim they do.  They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say.  They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on.  But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say.  They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is.  They pick and choose.  

Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth.  You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.  

Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God.  Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin.  That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.  

YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?  MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.  

Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision.  It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible.  GET A KING JAMES BIBLE.  Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.  

If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church.  A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would.    Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.  

I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway.  And where he did not believe there was a hell.  And that message is so wrong.  But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul.  And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong.  As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic.  And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads.  And he is the blind leading the blind.  He does become branded a Heretic.  But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.  

The movie is entitled:  Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate.  Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it.  Because hell is real. 

Maybe this is why I write.  Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies.  They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.  

I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself.  Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies.  You need to search for God yourself.  So you can know.  Religion, will not do that.  

Its a turn off to many.  And I understand it.  The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says.  Religion.  Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think.  And its wrong. 

I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.

So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free.  One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.  

I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer.   By seeing, I needed to repent.  By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.

I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate.   I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water.  But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference.  I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.  

AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE.  AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM:  FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.  

JOHN 10:4-5  King James.  

Look, I don’t know who my audience is here.  But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God.  Don’t stop searching for God.  

You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses.  And that we are all the same.  We are not!  

And you don’t want anything to do with them.  I understand that.  I stay away from them too.  But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is.  You need truth, friend.  

Don’t search for religion friend.  Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings.   Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ.  Never a person. 

I would start by just a prayer.  Repenting, admitting, your sins.  Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you.  Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you.  Or implemented as a rule for you.  

See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search.  Don’t deny the law.  Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law.  We do.  

I recommend a King James bible.  For holiness.  Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much.  Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives.  So use only a King James bible.

Pray to Him daily.  And I also believe in daily repentance to God.  Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent.  This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him.  He is your greatest friend.  He will never leave or forsake you.  He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.  

You need to keep it up, or you will get cold.  If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.

IMG_0012  

Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.  

Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off.  But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ…..
