MY SECRETS GOD HAS GIVEN ME SO ANYONE CAN BE AN EXPERT ON THE BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


POLQPkERTTq%WPR3o%LEZg.jpgYou can be an expert of the Bible.  But let me offer some of these secrets, that I have learned through my lifetime.   I have an understanding of Gods word.  And I am not trying to brag, and I am not in category of being called a Theologian.  

But I have hid Gods word in my heart, and when I need it, I know where to look.fullsizeoutput_1db1.jpeg

It does take diligence.  It takes the desire, to learn who God is, and to understand His ways.  To know Him personally.  It takes the desire to search!!!

For me, God has always tried to teach me, and I have not always been diligent, in this, but for me, falling to the bottom of the barrel, made me search, and I have not stopped searching.

When I say, I was at the bottom of the barrel, this was a time, where I was lost.  Where I was controlled by sin, because I was naive, and I just knew I could not stay there.  I was very misguided as a young woman, and as a teenager.  I had terrible judgment.

But as a child, my mother did try to teach me about who God is, by allowing me to go to Christian vacation, bible schools.  I thank God for that because it helped train me to at least look and search for God.  

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO:  AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  PROVERBS 22:6  KJV. 

There I had participated in Bible memory classes, and there were awards, given to those who could memorize scripture.  I liked the challenge, and would try and memorize Gods word.  And get awards.  Today serving, and surviving, with Gods word, makes the difference to me, and I would never let go of my word, from God. 

But those lessons, I put behind, when I grew up a little.  I wanted to party, but I left God out of the equation.  And sadly, I even denied God. Worse, mistake I could make in my life.

But knowing Gods word, even in the limited amount that I knew as a child, compelled me to seek God, for answers, because I needed answers.  This is how I got out of the bottom of the barrel.  I needed to know why my life was so messed up, for lack of better words.

I knew I had to repent to God, that was taught to me, at an early age.  I knew, I had to clear the slate, so to speak.  Because I knew, scripture said, God would not hear me, if I had sin.  I knew I had reaped my sins.  In other words, the things that I had did in sin, I saw that there were spiritual curses.  

So, I repented.  In fact, I still repent daily, I know how good repentance is for the soul.  I knew Christ died for my sins.  I knew, that He was resurrected.  I began seeing, how powerful His sacrifice was, and it made me come to my knees, and seek God.  Don’t be one of those who mocks repentance.  Did you know that is an indicator of pride?  

So long story short, this was my motive into searching for answers.  And to know God.

The following is just a basic draft, summarized.  I suppose I could turn this into a book, but I want to give you quick tips, so you can in your own way, know God, but also be someone, who can use Gods word, and know Gods word, when facing any kind of situation where Gods word is required to bring light, or insight, even to someone else, who needs to know truth.

But no doubt about it, knowing Gods Holy King James word, enhances your faith.

And this is where, I have grown myself.  Because I know that I know there is a God.

His word, has so many capabilities, that I know I am scratching the surface.  But if you wonder why your faith is not strong, it could be very well, because you don’t know Gods word, and what He says.  It could also be because you don’t use a King James.  

This will affect your judgement.  Your words, and outlook:

  1. Ask God to open your eyes to scriptures, He wants you to learn.
  2. Read a King James Bible daily.  I read mine in the morning, and at night, before bedtime.
  3. Get a good Bible app, where you can download the King James bible.
  4. Write scriptures down.
  5. Remember that the King James has “key” words for you to search where the others do not have those key words, to find the truth.  Even if you do not remember the entire verse, or where it is, if you at least remember a key word, it will help you search.  And find the scripture you need for reference.
  6. Buy a Bible Concordance.  This will have thousands of words, for you to search for scripture references.
  7. Consider, creating a scripture journal.
  8. Share scripture with others on social media.
  9. Don’t get lazy, when it comes to knowing scripture, and search.  The secret in this, is that if you have a learning spirit, God will show you wondrous things in His word.
  10.  Get creative using scripture.  I like to post a scripture to a photograph now and then as part of my ministry.  And with all my writings, I apply scripture, as a foundation, so folks, will see, that I am not just talking, the talk, but I have the King James scripture to back it up.
  11. Stay hungry, and thirsty for Gods word.  He will fill you with truth, but you have to want to learn who He is.  
  12. Don’t let your bible get dusty.  A good sign of a well balanced person in Christ is someone whose Bible shows wear and tear on it.

What I have noticed, and this makes me very sad, but I am sure God as well, is that Christians do not know Gods word.  This makes them very vulnerable to the world, to those who hate God, to those who purposely challenge us, as Christians.  You are not completely wearing your armor of God.   And whose fault is that?

When you need a word of God, you should be somewhat familiar, with what God says in a matter, to even be able to go to a King James Bible and do a search with a key word.

These subject matters come up often, but instead of pulling out a scripture to say,  “Thus saith the Lord.”  People are left not knowing truth.

From homosexuality, (which by the way, that word is not in a King James bible) but it is an abomination to God.

To abortion.

To even matters of whether or not we should pray for our leaders, these verses, are in a Bible.  Which reminds me, pray for our President.  Don’t you see the spiritual battle America is in?oVVGLhJKTo6LVp1ubRxVEgBut if you don’t open up a King James bible, you won’t get any understanding.

I personally, do not understand this.  Is it laziness?  Is it just pride, to think you can find your own way in life?  But what I will say, is that you have the tool there, but to me, when you don’t know, what God says, you hurt yourselves.  

And I will be totally frank, you are not acting like a true soldier of the Lord, if you don’t know holy word.  The Holy Spirit, cannot prompt you in matters, to even give you discernment, because you won’t learn it, you won’t use it, and you get lazy.  

The sad thing is, that you could be light. You could bring light to the darkness, that blinds yourself, and others.  You could warn someone.  And don’t confuse, warning with judging, because we are called to warn, and love warns.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James.  

Its up to you, but you know, with what I know from Gods word, I know it has built my faith.  It has given me boldness, courage, because I know what God says about some things.  

And no, I do not proclaim to know everything, but everything I know about God is because I searched.  If you don’t search, you only have yourself to blame.  But I actually think its stupid, to ignore, what God says.

Yes, He loves us.  But there will come a time, and in fact, the Holy Spirit, prompted me even this morning, to remind us all, that yes God loves us, but His wrath will be revealed for those who mock and disobey.  Who play at church, and religion.  But have no true substance, who have not taken word to root in their souls.  This is wrong, in His sight.  God is not mocked.  Read Galatians 6:7 from a King James.

And I don’t care who you are, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God, and if you mock God or His truth, that wrath will be revealed.  We all reap what we sow.  Oh my gosh, if you only knew what you are doing, when you deny God, or when you deny His truth, or you mock Him.  

I know, the hard way, I reaped some terrible things, because of my disobedience.  But it made me run to the cross, it made me seek God, and seek His truth.  

And I have the fear of God.

fullsizeoutput_1dcd

I was so spiritually attacked.  I thought, I was losing my mind.  I was so fearful, paranoid, and the enemy knew that, I did not have a strong defense.  Now I roar back like a lion myself, because of who Christ is in me, and at that ugly old devil, and tell him to back off, because I know what God says.  My courage, and boldness, is there.  My armor of God is on, and my sword of truth, which is my King James bible is sharp!  And I remind the devil, he has lost the battle because of Christ.  See I know the Battle is Gods, I know the power of God, this is why I glorify Him, and I will not be ashamed.  And when I know I cannot fight it, or things seem impossible, I am reminded what the Holy King James scriptures say.  That all things are possible with God. I pray, to God, and ask Him to release my angels, by God, to fight those demons, and all I have to do is submit to God, resist the enemy, and the enemy will flee.  

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.  I JOHN 3:8  King James. 

Folks, I don’t know what else to tell you, but start studying His word, don’t be one of those flaky Christians.  Because some day you, and I and the world, will stand before God, and what will He say? fullsizeoutput_1db5.jpeg

Please start using your King James bibles.  Theres a lost world out there, and a battle for souls, and you could win a soul for Christ, but you could also deliver yourself.  

I have given you photographs of scriptures, from a King James.  When you are prompted, look up these words, because they are KEY WORDS and go to a good Bible app.  Or a King James concordance, and search.  I could give you the verse numbers, and chapters.  But then you won’t grow.  Searching yourself, will make you learn and grow. 

This is why you don’t want to use a corrupted Bible, that has changed the words.  You won’t find the truth.   Please search for God, and search for truth. Our world, our country, needs you to be faithful to know what God says, if you call yourself a Christian.

I want you to especially remember this last photograph.  If you want to get into the Holy city, and have your name in the book of life.  You need to know what God says about not using holy word.  

I will share this verse, in this post, because I want you to know exactly what the consequences are, for messing with Gods holy word, and using word that is corrupted.  It is Revelation 22:18-19.  Please note as you read it,  you can be denied access to the Holy city.  You can have your name removed from the book of life.  Don’t play with your salvation.  Learn and know what God says.  

fullsizeoutput_1dd1

Remember these verses, and search!   READ YOUR BIBLE!  Share this, at least try and open someones eyes.  Besides your own….

Blessings, in Christ,

BUILDING WALLS DESTROYING BRIDGES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0046.jpeg

AND THEY THAT SHALL BE OF THEE SHALL BUILD THE OLD WASTE PLACES:  THOU SHALT RAISE UP THE FOUNDATIONS OF MANY GENERATIONS; AND THOU SHALT BE CALLED, THE REPAIRER OF THE BREACH, THE RESTORER OF PATHS TO DWELL IN.  

ISAIAH 58:12 KING JAMES.

I suppose, building a wall and destroying a bridge as a metaphor, is something, we all do by instinct.  Though, I would never, ever suggest, that literally.  

I am just thinking today, though, how we all either build a wall, or destroy a bridge to protect ourselves.

I suppose you do that if you have been hurt by others.  And sometimes we build a wall, or destroy a bridge, even with those that have not hurt us, but because we have been hurt, its like an instinct, to do either.

I never really thought of it, but I suppose I do it too.  And I always like to express to others, why I do what I do sometimes, because communication always clears the air.

But when folks, build a wall up, or destroy a bridge with me, I feel helpless.

I cannot scream at them, or whisper, or even call them up, or write a letter.

(For,I have written many letters that some are read by some, and some I just keep to myself, because it is my outlet, to soothe my soul.)

But I cannot tell them this, because they have closed the case, or built the wall, destroyed my letters, and so I see them destroying the bridge.  If that makes sense.IMG_0577

I have been seeing this a lot in my life, symbolically, where I am thinking, I could have courage, to try and communicate, by climbing the wall, or trying to repair the bridge, but I am weary.  Too many bridges have been burned in my life.  Too many walls have gone up.  

And when they won’t let me communicate, or they will not make the attempt to communicate as well, I don’t know what else to do, but just leave them be.  As much as I love them.  

I admit it.  I don’t have the bounce, I used to.  Life is so unpredictable.  Sometimes, we just cannot see where the bridges are, because we allow the walls ourselves.

I know God knows, where the walls are, and I know that He allows some walls.  As for repairing the bridges, there are some bridges, that should not be repaired. And I ponder on this too.  

But when you are going through it, sometimes, you cannot see that.  You want to build a bridge, or knock down the wall, but you just cannot.  Something holds you back.  I have held back.  I know it, I see it.

Silence, has not always been golden but it is now my wall, that I hide behind, and my own bridge. That I have learned to use. For myself.  And if folks cannot respect that, then they really are not meant to be in your life. 

Sometimes….You just cannot comprehend, or understand why there are walls, and why bridges have been destroyed.

What I have learned, is to keep walking.  Or crawling, but I will not give up.  As much as it hurts.  As much as you have to cry.  Or clean up your own wounds, from battles.  Christ is there.  Cleaning up the wounds.  Putting salve on your heart, and hurts.  I know He does this for me often. We all have our own griefs.  I know I have had mine.  And I will not compare my griefs to anyone! I refuse to do that. It is not healthy spiritually, or physically, mentally, etc.  

But I am not letting go!  Of Gods hand. Keep walking, keep going on.  Don’t look back.  Keep walking with Christ.  Let Him guide you.  Run that race.  Never give up.  This is what I know.  Just don’t give up.  Like the scripture says, run the race.  This is what I intend to do.  

HEBREWS 12:1  KING JAMES  

WHEREFORE SEEING WE ALSO ARE COMPASSED ABOUT WITH SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES, LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT, AND THE SIN, WHICH DOTH SO EASILY BESET US, AND LET US RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US.  

There is light, there is hope.  There is another chance.  Even if walls have gone up, or you yourself have destroyed bridges.   Get out of the darkness.  Get into His light.  His holy King James truth.

And again don’t use anything else but that!  It is holy word, not corrupted.  Folks, you want Gods voice in a matter, not a voice that is disobedient to God because the words were changed.   But many folks do not see that…

Anyway…

Don’t look at death, but look at life, and how Christ represents life.  How He promises to give life, and life abundantly!  

THE THIEF COMETH NOT BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY:  I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.  JOHN 10:10  KJV.  

This scripture says so much, but look at it carefully.  It says they “might” have life.  But that’s up to you.  Because He will do His part, if you do yours. 

It is a choice.  Always a choice.  

AND IF IT SEEM EVIL UNTO YOU TO SERVE THE LORD, CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE; WHETHER THE GODS WHICH YOUR FATHERS SERVED THAT WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FLOOD, OR THE GODS OF THE AMORITES, IN WHOSE LAND YE DWELL; BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.  JOSHUA 24:15.  KJV.IMG_1574  

I choose hope, life, and love.  Always! Because these things come from my Lord. 

Watch your words, oh my watch your words.  

DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE:  AND THEY THAT LOVE IT SHALL EAT THE FRUIT THEREOF.  PROVERBS 18:21  KING JAMES.

If some folks only knew what they say, or share in just words.  If only they could see, that they are allowing some things spiritually, because they just cannot see the power of their words.  Stop saying you are dumb. Stop being in denial.  Get some backbone, when it comes to being accountable.  Admit your faults, because truth is we all have them. Stop saying you are weak.  Start saying you are strong.  

BEAT YOUR PLOWSHARES INTO SWORDS, AND YOUR PRUNINGHOOKS INTO SPEARS;  LET THE WEAK SAY, I AM STRONG.  JOEL 3:10  KJV. 

Stop looking at darkness.  Death. And think about it, if you have survived the battle, you are strong.  Stronger then you know!

When you are on a train, and it goes through a tunnel, you don’t jump out of the train.  You stay on and in the train till it gets to its destination.  Hold on!  And open your eyes, there is a lot to look for.  As you come out of that tunnel. To Believe in.

IMG_0418

Keep walking.  If God means for bridges to be rebuilt, and for walls to come down with some people.  He will show you.  He will help those folks, to get stronger, with more courage, and love.  Keep praying for them.  For revelation.  For understanding.  They may get back in step with you, but until then….

Keep loving them even in your memories, but keep walking…..

Do not stop and have a pity party!  Theres no time for that any more, I feel that for myself any way….So much time has been wasted. 

I believe that is a word for me, even now.  That I claim.  I am praising God, as I walk through the doors.  

I KNOW THY WORKS:  BEHOLD I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT:  FOR THOU HAST A LITTLE STRENGTH, AND HAST KEPT MY WORD, AND HAST NOT DENIED MY NAME.  REVELATION 3:8.   

The door may look closed to folks, to those who have not supported me in my ministry.  To those who have just mocked me, stood on the sidelines, because I share my testimonies, and they can’t even share a post of mine. To encourage someone, but I know it is opened, I just have to walk in it.  By the way, I forgive them.  They know not what they do.  Christ said that, and I remember that too.  

IMG_2200

Because the walls He has built, are eternal, and the bridges He has established, comes from the cross.  Of our dear Lord Jesus.  And I can only hide behind those walls, with Him, and walk that cross, as the bridge, careful not to destroy my walk with Him.  

This bridge can never be destroyed.   I Praise you Lord, thank you for my salvation.  I am not ashamed of who Christ is in my life.  And I will with all my heart, try to obey.  I know my own faults, but you have held me.  Thank you Father God, glory and honor to your name.  My Lord Jesus.  Amen.

Hope this blesses you, in Christ, Happy Mothers Day.  To all mothers.

GUARDING YOUR HEART ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2277.jpegSometimes, it takes life, life experiences, other people, and just negative outcomes to teach you to keep and guard your heart with all diligence.  To obey God in this.

PROVERBS 4:23 KEEP THY HEART WITH ALL DILIGIENCE; FOR OUT OF IT ARE THE ISSUES OF LIFE.  KING JAMES 

This can be a hard lesson of life.  It has been for me in many ways.  I thought, with my heart.  I thought and felt with my emotions.  I was an opened book.  I got off balance.  And a false balance is an abomination to God.

A FALSE BALANCE IS ABOMINATION TO THE LORD:  BUT A JUST WEIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.  PROVERBS 11:1  KING JAMES.  

But sometimes we don’t see it.  We don’t recognize when we are off balance, nor when we are not guarding our hearts.  This is why it is so important to keep seeking God.  

Out of hearts, can come good and evil, and sometimes, one can call good, evil, and evil good.  And woe unto those, who do not see this.

This is why its so important, that we do not let our hearts rule our decisions, our thoughts, our motivations, but we bring it all to the obedience of Christ.  This is why its so important, to give our hearts to Christ.

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5  KING JAMES.

This is a very powerful scripture when it comes to the matters of our heart.  Because what we think will affect our heart.  What we think and feel and yes express…

Do we look to see purposely, what exalt’s itself, when it comes to what God says, and what we should know, about God?  

This is why we need to obey Christ.  This is why we need to have the mind of Christ, in understanding.  This is why sometimes, we must keep and guard our hearts.

Suffering, teaches us, sometimes, if we are opened to what God says.  Because we can see God correcting us.  We can see, if we seek Him, there is a solution, to our pain or sorrow.  This is why the scripture says, count it all joy.  

Now I admit its not easy.  But when you are challenged, with anything, the goal should be to seek God.  To help you.  To show you the path to take.  Pride is such a terrible thing to have, because it will hinder you.  But when you suffer, and as you guard your heart, if you do so, in Christ, He will heal your pain, your sorrow, this hurt you feel.  

Sometimes, when you are wounded, this is the most important time to guard and keep your heart.  I sense that for me.  I go silent.  I withdraw.  I trust God.  I pray more.  And God reaches out to me, and puts salve on my wounds.  Cleans the poison, or offenses away from me. He draws me closer to Him.  But I have my part, in this.  

Be humble to God, and don’t guard your heart from Him.  Because He knows you, anyway, but He knows, what you can become or be in Him in Christ.  But if you withdraw from God, you only hurt yourself more.  

AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING, SHALL KEEP YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.  PHILIPPIANS 4:7  KJV.

Be careful who you confide in.  Be careful who you let into your heart.  There are times, you want or need to talk, to vent.  But be careful.  Because not everyone will guard your heart, as well, and can use what you share against you.  And that is a very hard lesson of life.  I know. 

See, I know, we all walk in life, and have different journeys.   But in my journey of life, I was so naive, when it came to people.  In trusting them.  In just being friends with some folks.  

To some, I gave them my heart, and they did not honor it.  Or they would not have done or said, the things they did.  In some cases, the wounds reopen.  Especially lately. Its been a rippling affect, but I am breaking the soul ties, by seeking God.  Yes, I always add, I forgive.  But it did do something to me.  

God has always taken people out of my life, that were not good, for me, but I was not aware of how much of my heart, I tried to share, but many stomped on me, and my feelings when they got a chance.  I was sometimes stubborn.  Not wanting to believe the worse about some folks.  

This has done something to my trust level.  So, I am not the opened book I once was.  And it may not even be fair to some, who may not have ulterior motives, or who may be true. But when it comes to people any more, I am just very cautious.  

I will not share my heart, like I used to.  And I don’t want to make my own heart cold.  Because this is what brings life.  By being expressive.  By being love.  Taking chances.  Theres the balance again.  

I just realize.  I need to just trust God.  Yet, I know, how important guarding my heart is.  

I will guard it, and keep it.  

In Christ,

TRAIN YOURSELF TO PRAY AGAINST EVIL ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

Train yourself, to pray against evil.  

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO: AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  Proverbs 22:6  KJV.

Are you a child of God?  This could apply to you, as well as to children, in youth.  Train them.  Train yourself.     

Are you a Christian, have you recognized Christ as your Lord and savior?

Do you recognize you are a sinner?  That you have lost your way?  That you want a better life.  For yourself, and even those you love?  For others?  For the world?  For your country, leaders etc?  Do you see, your own short comings?  

Good.

Now if you can actually say, you have dedicated your life to Christ, then you need to see there are things you have to do in the spirit realm, to maintain a good relationship with God.  

You don’t take grace for granted.  You don’t sin, just to sin, you realize what Christ did on the cross for you, and you want to obey, and love the Lord.  You want to serve God.  You get hungry and thirsty for righteousness, and you long for it, in your life, others, and even the world.  

One way of serving God, is realizing, you are now in the army of the Lord.  If you have repented, and confessed Christ as your Lord and savior.  

You are a soldier for Christ.  Look at yourself as someone, who has gifts and callings, to serve God.  He has blessed you with abilities, that perhaps someone else may not be able to do.  And as a soldier, you need to put on the armor of God.  Read Ephesians 6, from a King James bible.  

You grow.  I know for myself, there are certain things, I did not know, as a baby Christian, but I do now.  God has and is training me still.  But there are some things I know to do, in the Holy spirit, and I have to apply myself.  

One is getting good holy word, from my King James.  As you know, I believe in King James word, as holy, and not corrupted, because it has not been changed.  Word is everything.  It is what God has given to instruct us, guide us, and comfort us, and to know what will be.  

It brings light, insight, but if the words have been changed with the excuse to bring better understanding, you are being deceived, if you use word that has no anointing, or holiness.

Now I want to talk about discernment.  You need to ask God for discernment, when you are a Christian.  To know, between good and evil.  Enough of this flaky Christian business.  That is presented to so many, and they take that as truth.  We are all responsible, for what we know.  Or use, or take as truth.  God will judge us all. Again this is why I highly recommend a King James bible. 

You need to get serious, no walking between the world, and God, you have to start sharpening your own sword.  Be careful about believing lies.  Because that brings on a spirit of delusion.

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE.  II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.   

And I have learned for myself, and even more so, much stronger lately, I have to train myself to pray against evil.  

I PRAY NOT THAT THOU SHOULDEST TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, BUT THAT THOU SHOULDEST KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL.  JOHN 17:15  KJV.  

Sometimes, we look at the world, we look at situations, and instead of praying about something we see, what disturbs us, we just accept it.  And thats wrong.  We have the greatest gift, God could give, and that is prayer.  We have God, who is above all evil, who is good, and who can make the difference.  

FOR THE LORD IS A SUN AND SHIELD:  THE LORD WILL GIVE GRACE AND GLORY:  NO GOOD THING WILL HE WITHHOLD FROM THEM THAT WALK UPRIGHTLY.  PSALMS 84:11  KJV. 

Pray.  We can get cold, insensitive, and actually get numb, to the things we see, that can be evil.  And that can be anything, or from anybody.  

Pray against it.  Plead the blood of Jesus.  I am getting pretty good at it lately, where in the sense, if I hear something in the news, or about people, I pray about it.  I don’t even think twice, I just add a prayer, I pray without ceasing.  I could give examples, but I will never let the devil know, what I know.  It is none of His business.  

And thats another thing be careful who you confide in, in prayer.  Or seek to have a prayer of agreement with.  Because many false messengers are sent out to find out what you are praying about.  Their main goal is to be nosy.  And that is not from Christ.  

So I have learned to be more quiet about what I am praying about.  It is just between me and God.  Unless, I am rebuking the enemy.  So I just pray about it.  And don’t forget about that authority God has given you, to rebuke.  

I tell God, what I see.  For, He sees it too. I tell God, that we need Him to intervene in a matter, and He has been training me, to remind myself to pray.  Not to fret.  I tell Him, that I am on His side.  And that the battle is His.  According to King James scripture. I remind Him what His word says, and ask that in prayer.  

As is the glory, honor, and praise.  But he has taught me in some cases…..

Not to argue, and believe me, that has been tough, because as a truth seeker, I have presented truth, many times, and I can actually say, in some cases, I have not seen results.  So why waste truth with a fool?  Brings light to the scripture that we are not to throw our pearls to swine.  

GIVE NOT THAT WHICH IS HOLY UNTO THE DOGS, NEITHER CAST YE YOUR PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, LEST THEY TRAMPLE THEM UNDER THEIR FEET, AND TURN AGAIN AND REND YOU.  MATTHEW 7:6  KJV. 

I know not to be ashamed of who I am in Christ, and so many times, I try to share what I know to help  someone.  Maybe I planted a seed to some, but this has been draining me, when it is abused, and I am not the young warrior I used to be.  

So I just pray.  Lately, I see more results in praying than talking about it.  Yet, we are called to speak truth, and warn one another.  Many in the body of Christ think it’s judging, but there is a difference. 

What can stop our prayer life?  Being off balance.  Sin. Not walking in love. Being caught up in this or that, and we are not looking at God, but looking at circumstances.  It can paralyze a person.  I think this is one reason, I have gotten off of social media.  In many circumstances.  It just gets old.  Though, I have not closed the door in that, but I am not on as much.  

DEPART FROM EVIL AND DO GOOD; AND DWELL FOREVERMORE.  PSALM 37:27  KJV.   

PRAY!  See we don’t fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities in high places.  Pray against these forces.  

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULES OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.  EPHESIANS 6:12  KJV.    

Even if you are just murmuring to God, a prayer against evil, you will notice you get better at it.  But you have to be consistent, this is the key.  Even if you do not see results.  There are things in the spiritual realm, that may require fasting, or more people praying about a matter.

But, if you begin even praying that God would bring people together to pray against evil, you would see, the fruit of it.  

HATE THE EVIL, AND LOVE THE GOOD, AND ESTABLISH JUDGMENT IN THE GATE:  IT MAY BE THAT THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS WILL BE GRACIOUS UNTO THE REMNANT OF JOSEPH.  AMOS 5:15  KJV.  

Be careful to be mindful of the holy spirits prompting in this.  You will receive instruction.  But you must be willing to obey.  God will not use a vessel, that is not faithful in these matters.  So pray, you are worthy.  But pray against the evil.

IF IT DO EVIL IN MY SIGHT, THAT IT OBEY NOT MY VOICE, THEN I WILL REPENT OF THE GOOD, WHEREWITH I SAID I WOULD BENEFIT THEM.  Jeremiah 18:10  KJV. 

Heres a good place to be reminded to fear God.  You do not want to lose blessings, because you did not obey God!

If He is telling you to pray, or to obey, in any matter, just obey.  But know His voice, the Lord, does not ever tell us to join evil, or to partake in it.  Again a reminder to know His voice from a King James bible. 

More than ever, our world needs prayer, and even the body of Christ is missing it, because the enemy has infiltrated, many churches, and corrupted, many, by bad word, the prosperity message, and fake and phony leaders.  Wolves, in sheep clothing.  

This is why I do not follow anybody, but Christ, just to protect my spirit.  I don’t want fake anointing to flow down to me.  This is deception.  

Train yourself to pray, brothers and sisters.  This is the key.  Train yourself to pray.  Pray often. Against evil.

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2278.jpeg

I love how God makes connections, and yes even in prayer.  

I see how He uses, the prayer, of a righteous person, to avail much.  

CONFESS YOUR FAULTS ONE TO ANOTHER, AND PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER, THAT YE MAY BE HEALED.  THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH.  JAMES 5:16  KJV.  

He seems to bring everything together, for a heart, that loves Him.  I see His hand in prayer.  I know about prayer, because I was conceived because of prayer.  Long story short, mama could not have children, my father prayed for me, I was conceived.

Because I know that God knows us, I know, I am also called to pray.  

BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE BELLY I KNEW THEE; AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE WOMB I SANCTIFIED THEE, AND I ORDAINED THEE A PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.  Jeremiah 1:5  KJV.  

Think about that.  God knew you during the time, of your growth in the womb.  Makes one sad, when we think of all those, that do not even make it out of the womb, because  their mothers, did not see the value of life.  Or even in knowing God.  Sad to see, abortion or infanticide accepted.  

I pray, even now, they open their eyes, to God.  Each child has a gift, that God has given, which leads me even more as to why praying for one another is so important.  

So, as I continue in this thought of prayer, I want to encourage you to pray.  To think about getting right with God, in the sense, so you can be righteous, and your prayers will count.

Get right with God.  It is a process, even in just being able to have access to the Holy Spirit.  But I know God even hears the cry, or the desire of the heart, if we come before Him, humble, and even repentant.   See, if there is sin there, God says, He will not hear.

IF I REGARD INIQUITY IN MY HEART, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR ME.  Psalms 66:18  KJV

So, the goal is always to get right with God, especially if you want Him to hear you, but also to answer you.  In prayer. 

I know a lot of people don’t agree with my method, in this, but as a Prayer intercessor, I actually believe in re-dedicating yourself to God, to get results.  By repentance.  It clears the slate. I know people don’t agree, because they have challenged me.  But, I know God does give answers.  So don’t ever give up on prayer.  

And well, to conclude this, somewhat, pray for others.  Pray for those who have hurt you.  Pray, because maybe inadvertently you may have hurt them too.  Just pray for folks.  Remember, when we get our eyes off of ourselves, onto God, for others, He hears that.

Remember Job from your King James bible?  He prayed for his friends.  And God answered him, and blessed him, and gave him double for his troubles.  He came out of it, hurt, but with a very humble and repentant heart.  

Look, its imperative that we are praying before trouble happens.  Its imperative, that we believe in miracles, before a miracle is desperately needed.  If we all increased our prayer life, to be dedicated in that, I think the world could, and would be a different place.  I believe we could avoid things, troubles, situations….

Right now, I am praying for someone I know, that I call a friend.  She needs a miracle.  She needs God to intervene on her behalf.  I won’t say what it is, but I know she does need a miracle.  An answer to prayer.  

The enemy, has tried to divide us, as friends and I see it.  And the circumstances are so out of my control.  But I also see, I need to pray for her.  God knows all the details.  He understands, and has a way.  But I am dedicated to pray for her.    

It seems like we are trying to be accountable with one another, we are confessing our faults, and even though their are wounds, we are trying to walk in love.  I don’t know where our friendship will go.  But I do pray God bless her, especially now.  

I pray she gets an answer.  Will you pray for her too?

In any event, I do want to give you a secret to praying.  That I believe I have learned….

Don’t have anything against anyone.  Don’t covet, or be jealous of them.  Or anybody for that matter.  Be happy for people.  Forgive people.  Release, resentment, or offenses, and just really pray for someone.  Even someone who has hurt you, or someone you have hurt, or someone who you are no longer in contact with.  

Theres are spiritual ties, that you can receive, in a negative way, that can interfere with your prayer life, if you hold onto these strange resentments, jealousies, or hate.  I believe they can block prayers from being answered.  So I try to be careful in these matters.  

Pray to God, to ask God to help you.  Remember Job, again God blessed him as he prayed. For his friends.  And his friends, were somewhat judgmental, perhaps a little jealous, and they challenged him.  They spoke truth, I believe, but you know sometimes, truth can be harsh.  After all, Job, had terrible losses.  He had suffered quite a bit.  But Job would not let them have the upper hand or let them make him feel inferior, even when he answers them, stating:

BUT I HAVE UNDERSTANDING AS WELL AS YOU; I AM NOT INFERIOR TO YOU: YEA, WHO KNOWETH NOT SUCH THINGS AS THESE?  JOB 12:3  KING JAMES.

Job, is a great example, even to me, in situations with friends, because I have lost a few friends.  Even Christian friends, and I know one thing about myself, is I never have been jealous of my friends.  And I am happy for them.  I cannot recall ever putting a head trip on them, because of what they had, or who they were.  When they are blessed, or if they are blessed.  

If something is wrong with them, in the sense, that they may have character flaws, at this point, I just pray for them.  I try to extend grace.  Maybe I do come across judgmental, in other matters, but I try not to be….  I try to extend grace with truth. But oh well.  But I know the difference.  

In fact, I pray for them now, because maybe I wasn’t mature enough when I knew them either, I don’t know, I guess, I relate to Job in a lot of ways.  I may have stopped praying for them, when our friendships ended.  But lately, God has been putting it on my heart to pray for those who hurt me.   To forgive.  To walk in love. Like Job did. 

So, I will pray for people, and I pray, I release them, in all things.  I think there is a secret to just accepting people, extending grace.  And being happy for people.  When they are happy.  Or blessed.  

So pray for your friends, be careful with the jealousy, and comparing yourself with others.  Because truth is, we all have our faults.  We all sin, and we all come short of the glory of God.  

I think there’s the secret, when we can repent, and just love, forgive, and pray for one another.  No matter what.  The greatest commandment is to love, God, and then love others.  Be accountable.  Be apologetic, I know it soothes my soul, when someone apologizes.  

Job is a great example of how God can bless someone, as he prayed for others…..

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  KING JAMES.  

I hope, you pray for one another.  I hope, I gave you indicators, a hint, to see, what God says about prayer, and how prayers can be stopped, if we are not right with God.  Or even others.  

Blessings, and love,

TURN YOUR WORRY INTO WORSHIP TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4592.jpegO COME, LET US WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN:  LET US KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER.  PSALM 95:6.  King James. 

Sometimes, when you go through things, it actually seems like things intensify.  It seems like it is spiritual battle.  Spiritual battle is different, then being spiritually attacked.  

But one must know how to deal with life, with these battles, one might face.

For me right now, I feel so inundated.  I have a lot on my plate.  I have challenges, here and there, and sadly, I even think I contribute to some of these challenges.  And this has hurt me.  

So, I find myself, wanting to be quiet.  Wanting to be left alone.  Wanting to just heal, pray, and worship God.  

I remember as a little girl, I used to use this process as well.  It was a mechanism, where sometimes, I tried to shut down.  I wanted to process, what I was going through.  I did not want to react.  I wanted to soothe my wounds.  I wanted to heal, because if I have been hurt, I did not always know how to react.  

I don’t internalize my emotional pains, I have always let them go.  I don’t swallow something hurtful.  I don’t let them take root into my spirit, to cause any kind of bitterness, I always take them to God.  

Because the root of that, could be destructive, and I am aware of that.  God has taught me to let go of things, and give them to Him.  And its been very healthy for me. 

If I have to cry, I will cry, if I have to speak my mind, I will speak my mind.  But I don’t let it stay bottled up in me, but there are times, when I cannot speak, I cannot put things into words, and I have to sort things out.  But I still go to God.  

I can get angry.  I can be sharp, and I can come out fighting.  And I really do not like that. About myself.  But I can.  So, when I feel pushed, or I feel like I am between a rock and a hard place, I will come out swinging, and I can say and do some things, I am not always proud of.  

And I think anybody could understand that, there are times, when one says, enough!

Thats why I know, being left alone, at some times, is so important to me.

My mother God bless her soul.  Did not understand that about me.  She did not leave me alone, to just catch my breath, or to just try to let the dust settle, after a disagreement, or a time of differences.  Challenges, etc. 

She would actually push my buttons.  She would go for the win, because I was wounded. When she did these things, it grieved me.  She did not understand my need to be left alone.  It was somewhat one-sided, and selfish on her part, but she did not have that skill of quite understanding me, in these kind of matters.  

I forgive her, I just know, some of her history, and she had a tough life.  Hurt people, sometimes hurt people more.  But still I had to deal with it, but now I recognize when someone is not being respectful to my hurts, or pain, and I won’t put up with it.  

Instead, of letting me be alone, she would take the opportunity, to pursue whatever it was, and it grieved me, because so many times, I just wanted to be left alone.

I have learned through the years, whenever I feel wounded, I have learned to seek God.  To find solace in Him.  To take His holy King James word to heart, and I have learned to turn my worry into worship.  

That requires being alone, sometimes.  Away from people, friends, and yes even politics.  (smile) To process, to pray, to seek counsel from God.

Going to God, does something for me.  He understands me, He knows my weaknesses, my strengths, but He is a Holy God, and a King.  And so, I have to understand my role, as well as I have to understand His.  I cannot have sin, between me, and Him, not if I want answers, so I try to repent.  I try to be humble.  

But I also understand this about God, when we are not right with God, there is no peace to the wicked.  This can cause anxiety.

The devil, has always tried to use things against us, so we will not worship God.  So we would have anxiety.  Christ knew this, when He told the devil….

AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, GET THEE BEHIND ME, satan, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE.  LUKE 4:8 KJV.  

So especially, when I am going through something, I try to get closer to God, in worship. I know, I cannot have any distractions.  I cannot allow myself, to not heal.  I have to seek God, more so, and many do not understand that, about me, but that’s how I go about healing.  

When people do not understand that, and when they pursue something, with me, and they do not let me deal with something, because of my nature, which is bold, courageous, and yes forgiving, they show me no respect, and it does bother me.

They actually act, like I can bounce back, like nothing happened.  And I cannot always.  Some things that are said to me is like Kryptonite, I get turned off. 

So I am not able to just act like nothing was said, or done.  

Not any more, maybe I was able to do that more readily, but now it takes more time.

Even though, I forgive, my guard goes up.

At this point of my life, because of the things, I am going through, and have gone through lately, I am actually alienating myself, distancing myself from people.  Its not that I don’t love them, but I need to mend, and heal.  

I cannot say, hello or goodbye, all I can do is be silent.  I am wounded.  And when I am wounded, I sense anxiety.  The spiritual battle is there.  Little things could bother me.  Personal space, and time, need to be respected.  Its not that you want to be rude, but for me any way, I am at a loss of words.  And I cannot be phony about it. 

I find, worshipping God, turning my anxiety into praise to God with prayer, and thanks, helps me.  I turn my worries to God.  I take everything to His throne.  

And just pray to heal.  I am at that point right now, where I just want to heal.  But I am being silent, and I am being quiet in the spirit, avoiding people, social media, and things that disturb my peace.  

I do it, because I know what works for me, and getting closer to God, always is the remedy.  God is a spirit, and it may be complex in some ways, but so are we, so thats why, when our spirits are troubled, this is when especially we must turn our worries into worship.

GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.  JOHN 4:24  King James.  

I turn my worry into worship.  Writing, even here, helps, me sort my feelings out, and if this blesses someone as well, then I know God will use it, for His glory.  Please leave a comment, let me know if this, or any of my writings bless you.  Its nice to know, now and then. 

Lord, I praise you, I worship you in spirit, and in truth, and ask for your holy spirit, to guide me.  To heal me, because I do feel wounded.  I take this step, in releasing it, no pride, or ego in this, I cannot handle it without you. So I worship you, for being my counselor, my hope, my redeemer, my deliverer.  How sweet it is to go to you.  In Jesus name.  Amen. 

Blessings, Elena Ramirez 

SEEKING GODS DESIRE FULFILLED IS THE DESIRE OF MY HEART ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2234.jpegSeeking Gods desires fulfilled, is the desire of my heart.  

I love the Lord.  I thank him, and pray, to do so daily.  I pray to please Him.  To comfort Him, to give Him hope in us, as people.  Oh I know God knows everything, and I know He knows who belongs to Him, His precious people, His sheep.  But He is my God, and it grieves me, when I see what I do see sometimes…..

What could I do? And what can I do even now?  I don’t always know, but I am willing to try…

For,  I do pray to fulfill His desires, with the calling He has placed on my life.  

Life. It is a journey….  

Life can be wasted, if the focus is not on focus on God.  If it is not dedicated to God.  

I look back on my life.  And it brings tears to my eyes.  How much I wasted.  How much I sinned.  How terrible my judgment was.  How trusting I was in people.  And people let you down.  I wish, I had known more about the fear of God, in my walk, earlier, perhaps, I would have avoided some things….but I have learned. 

Nothing works, without Gods hand on it, nor does it bring joy.

I guess, that’s why I just have this revelation today.  Because He promises, that if we delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our heart.

DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD; AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.  PSALM 37:4 KING JAMES.   

But I believe thats in giving Him the desire of His heart.  

Just my thought…. any way.  I hope you ponder on that thought, and think about it, for your own life.  For your own relationship with God.  

See, its been a while, where I have tried, and I am not perfect at this.  But I try to get my eyes off of what I want.  What I need.  Trying to be more grateful thankful.  Less of me, more of Him.  I have had my eyes on myself far too long.  And made mistakes… that have hurt myself. 

It has changed my perspective in….What I desire….yet the scripture says, He will give us the desires of our heart.  

I see folks, searching for power.  For fame.  For money.  For beauty.  And to me, these things do not bring me closer to the Lord.  In fact, I would actually state, that I think seeking those things do not come from Gods Kingdom, but from the enemy.  Gods enemy the devil.  

FOR THE WICKED BOASTETH OF HIS HEARTS DESIRE, AND BLESSETH THE COVETOUS, WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH.  PSALMS 10:3  KING JAMES.   

So because he is Gods enemy, he is mine as well.  I will serve God, and I will be very careful not to give place to the enemy.  I submit to God, resist the devil, and he must flee.  

But I have, I know, by my sins.  I did give place to the enemy.  That did not produce righteous fruit, but even curses.  But those curses, are covered now by the blood of Jesus.  For I have repented, and I am very careful in spiritual matters now.  

Oh I know God can bless, but I have come to a place and its been a while, where I seek His face.  Not His hand.  And those kind of messages, where the prosperity message is promised, is so deceiving.  Because one does not grow. One does not understand who God is….

Nothing can take His place of just knowing He is there.  Nothing can comfort me more in a world, where anything is not predictable.  But who He is, and His promises.  All of them, that I find in my King James bible, that is holy.  

To me, having sweet fellowship, and peace, and just a sense of knowing He is there, blesses me, that is now the desire of my heart.  Sure there are things in life, I like, may even desire, but they can never, ever have priority over my relationship with my Lord.  

How I long to please Him give Him the desire of His heart.  By love, by obedience, by sweet fellowship, in prayer, by using the discernment He gives me, to know what to do by His Holy Spirit.  By understanding to try and keep His laws.  Oh many have a hard time with that, but God is a legal God, and thats where happiness is.

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

Thats my goal, my job in life, to give Him my Lord, the desires of His heart.  That will make me happy…  Just to be willing to Love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind….

Hope this blesses you today..

Hope this blesses God more…

Lord, I thank you Father.  Thank you Lord Jesus, Thank you, for everything, my God, by your Holy spirit.  I pray, Lord, that I am always mindful to make my desire, the desire of your Heart.  You are God, and there is none else.  You deserve all glory, all honor, and praise, to be mentioned.  Forgive me if I have ever failed you in this.  I am sure I have. And it grieves me.  But I pray, to please you.  I do love you Lord.  More than ever….For thy will to be done, in Jesus name.  Amen.  

LORD, THOU HAST HEARD THE DESIRE OF THE HUMBLE:  THOU WILL PREPARE THEIR HEART, THOU WILT CAUSE THINE EARS TO HEAR:   PSALM 10:17  KING JAMES.  

In Christ,

Elena Ramirez
