SOMETIMES THERE ARE NO SECOND CHANCES WITH GOD AND PEOPLE… ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1485.jpgSometimes, there are no second chances with God, and people.  As I write this, I sense a bit of anger.  And so I want to be careful with this.  For the glory of God.  

I just see it so clearly right now.  I just see, how life, the life God gives to us, should not be wasted.  I have wasted life.  In so many ways.  I did not know better.  But, maybe, what I can share with you, may bring insight.

And its not over, till God says its over.  But when it is over, there are no second chances, folks, with God or with people.  

Sometimes we just have to see it, and grasp the moment.  For some, I pray, you grasp this.  

For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.  Proverbs 4:2.  King James….  

See God is giving us good doctrine, to guide us, to teach us, to instruct us, and show us who He is.  That I see as King James word, but some folks, waste their time, using corrupt doctrine, and they forsake HIS laws, that tell us don’t change His word.  Because it is holy word.  And corrupt word, does not have the same affect or anointing.  

Or if one gets lazy, and does not seek God, what does that say?  Thats pride.  Thats saying, I can do it on my own. Thats just wrong.  

The world, has denied God, so are we going to go with the world?  I hope not.  See the enemy of God, wants you to miss it.  And there are lots of ways, the enemy distracts us.  Get close to God, so you get another chance.      

But you have to see, what kind of relationship do you have with God.  Are you working on it, with prayer, with love, with fear of God?

Or….If the indication, is there by the way we treat people, what does that say, about the way we treat God?

If we are not loyal to God, in obedience, love, respect, honor, yes fear of God, how can we have these attributes toward others?

I do get angry, when I see Christian leaders, treat God like an ATM.  With their phony prosperity message, that does not call out for the lost.  That does not treat salvation as a priority for this lost world.  I do get angry, when people are misled, by using unholy, corrupted Bibles.  I do get angry, when I see, how the devil has deceived so many.  

But I cannot turn that anger, into hate.  I cannot, be destructive.  I must seek the peace of God, that surpasses understanding.  But I still see the corruption.  So, I am at a place, where I am being quiet, and trying to hear Gods voice.  But I have my part.  In fear of God.  It makes me see, though…. that  we have to do something, we have to do our part.  Why do I care?    

Why?  Because I see the difference.  Been there, done that.  I see, my own mistakes.  I see, my own faults.  I see….  And sadly as well… I see….our lost world.     

Because people don’t have fear of God, or what He commands us.  And those chances, my friend, are dwindling.  Life is not forever on earth!

WAKE UP!

All I can do, is use my own life, as the reference.  And when I see, yes, the many mistakes I made in life, and even in my Christian life.  I grieve!  Yes, I grieve.  For not seeing it….

I pray, there is more time for me, to serve God.  I pray to make it up to Him.  I pray, to be fulfilled…. I pray, to make it right with Him, and others.  But I have to see my own mistakes, by His grace, and correct them, while there is time on this earth.

To grow, to fulfill my calling in Him.  He has brought me to a place, even right now, where yes, I fear God.  Because I see how fragile, I can be.  

Recently, I have been challenged in a few things, some that I will not elaborate here, but I am challenged, but when your health is off, and you know it, you know, that yes, you could leave this earth.  

So, what do you do?  

You try and get right with God, is my thought.  Because someday, I will, and you will, stand before Him.  

I read, a tweet, on Jim Caviezels page, that said something to the affect, “Live life, like its your last day on earth.”

So, my thought was, if thats the case, then I better live, my life, repenting daily.  Walking in fear of God daily, trying to walk in love with people, daily.  Trying to Love God with all I got. I am not perfect.  I have my faults.  

But I notice, I can extend grace to some, but they don’t extend it back to me.  And I have noticed, yes, I have asked God for this, and that, but He does not always give me what I ask.  Believe me, there are many lost dreams, I have had.

But, I am not going to deny God.  I am not going to reject Him, just because He does not give me what I want.  Because God has given me grace, my whole life through…

But people, will deny God, and others…..

People, so prideful, so mean spirited, get these attitudes, that treat life, and others shabbily.  Just because they don’t get their way with people, and with God, and thats wrong.  

See, I do have a history.  And when I look at that history, I realize, all the good things God has done for me.  I realize, I have missed it so many times.  With Him, and with people.  

My own personal relationships, I admit, in some, I have missed it.  Right now, I may have a couple of friends, but sometimes, I see, its only friendship, when I please them.  But if I don’t please them, they are gone….. 

Do I treat God like that?  I pray not.  I have my immediate family, who I cherish.  Who I thank God for.  But when I look at the past, and I see, my own broken family and who they were, and the chances they also had, with me, as I was growing up.  

I pray, to break curses, or  cycles, where, people I loved were only there for a moment.  In the good, and the bad, and when they left, there were no second chances.  No matter how much I longed for that, I did not get those chances. 

So what has all of this taught me, as I vent here?  That friends, God is teaching us, reaching out to us, through this journey called life.  But you can’t stay stuck.  You gotta grow.  You have to change, to be fulfilled.  

Stop looking at God, as an ATM.  Stop looking at Him, as if He has to do something, but you don’t think what can I do, to please Him, or serve Him.  This is where the growth stops, if you don’t try and please Him.  

Stop thinking about self.  Self, is just another indicator of who the enemy is.  See, we can get so preoccupied, with self, in that spirit, that we miss our own callings.  

We miss, how God can use us.  We miss, love.  See chances, are given, but if we misuse them, abuse them, abuse God, and others, we fail.  

I pray, to share this, with love, but yes again, I am kind of angry.  But it makes me realize, every day is a gift from God.  And my gift in return to Him, is what I do with it.  

See, His sacrifice for me on that cross was too great.  I cannot abuse it, by going back to sin.  I cannot abuse it, by not fearing the consequences of reaping what I sow.  I cannot treat people, like they don’t matter.  Even if they treat me like I don’t matter.  

Do you see, what I am trying to say here?

I just realize, and pray, that we all wake up.  Christ could return any moment.  Or our last breath, could happen at any moment.

Stop playing church.  Stop playing sanctimonious.  Or stop playing dumb.  Stop playing with life.  Stop denying God and people.  

Because you know what, we all do sin, we all do come short of His glory. Yes, I hate sin, I hate what it did to me, and stopped my own blessings as I reaped the consequences…

But sometimes, when I look at someone, I am reminded, that I once was where they were.  I had filthy rags.  I am nobody better, then anybody else.  

So, all I know, is though…

I don’t want to grieve my Lord Jesus.  With religion, (rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, or groups, or even by myself, trying to do things my way.)  Or my way, which leads to hell, if you read my past post.  

I just don’t want to miss it any more, to conclude this.  Yes, I pray for more chances with my Lord, and people.  But I don’t want to miss it.  I don’t want to just take things for granted.  Because we never know.  We just don’t know……  

Sometimes, you have to walk by yourself.  And you are not walking alone.  If you make sure, by repentance, that Jesus is walking with you.  You are walking with Jesus.  Just don’t let go of His hand, on this earth, so you can make sure, He will walk you into heaven.

To conclude this:  Folks, don’t let time go by without making it right with God.  Repentance, I have learned, with fear of God, is the best thing, I can do for my spiritual health.  Even on a daily basis.  

With people, apologize, if you need to, see again, its not worth pettiness, or pride, because sometimes there are no second chances.   Please, if you don’t get anything else from my message today.  Make it right with God.  Make it right with people.  For your own sake.  Please.  

I guess, I am just thinking of those who wanted to do this, and that, and did not get that chance, because they did not make Christ, Lord and savior.  I think of that sick person, who wishes they had served God, instead of denying Him.  So they could have had physical health, and good spiritual health.  I think of others, who are headed for hell, because they did deny Him.  And let money, or sin, take priority.  

I think of the broken friendships and family relationships, that could have been fulfilled, if someone had just said, I am sorry.  

But then it was too late, with God, and others….  

I just think, I have to share truth.  I have to share His truth.  I don’t want Him to say, what did you do Elena, with the chances I gave you?  

I don’t want that to be me, or you.  You see, I never want to hear from Him.  I never knew you.  

Read Matthew 7, from a King James, but this verse says it all.  How strange, this is the second time, God led me to give that to someone, and now, I see it for myself as well, more then ever….

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY. Matthew 7:23 King James.   

You don’t want Him to say that to you.  Or even think it.  

Friends, think of the blessings you have, and then do something with it, and about it, for God, for others.  You have your part.     

Hope this helps somebody today.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

PICKING APART JOYCE MEYERS THOUGHTS ON TATTOOS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3640.jpgPicking Apart Joyce Meyers Thoughts on Tattoos…
By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Joyce Meyer, is a prominent leader, in the world. Concerning matters of religion. As a Christian, that she claims to be, I find her thoughts, very disturbing.

I was once one of those who looked to her, as inspiration, because she found Christ. But if she found Him, her thoughts, show, she departed from Him. They show she has departed from His law, and they show she promotes hate, to others who do not agree with her. I base this on the following video:  And if by some chance it mysteriously disappears, look it up on youtube.  Joyce’s thoughts on tattoos.

I know she is well liked. I know, this may anger, or upset those that follow her, but I am to please God, not man, or any person, and so are you!

The King James scriptures tells us that there will be those, that are blind, and leading the blind. And this describes her exactly.

LET THEM ALONE; THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND. AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH. MATTHEW 15:14 KJV.

Joyce Meyer, starts her sermon, in this video, on the comparison between holiness, and legalism.

This is what Gods word, says about holiness. She does not use this scripture, but I will so you can see what the King James says about holiness.

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”
Isaiah 35:8 KJV

Her thought, right away, attacks religious people. Because they know having a tattoo is not accepted in the scriptures. She stereo types those that want to obey God. That know truth, that see the error of doing some things. And she calls it “legalism.”

She refers to Isaiah 44:5 and makes reference that its o.k. to have a tattoo, basically because God did it. Which is wrong, the scripture does not promote marking of the skin, it talks about just writing. Subscribing.

She says that it says; That it is tattooed; “I belong to the Lord”. It does not say that. See it from a Holy King James bible. But this is what it says:

“One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.”
Isaiah 44:5 KJV

It does not say tattoo, and she says it does. Please see this.

Again, she makes a reference, that God is promoting it, because He tattooed your name on his hand. The scripture does not say that. It says “graven” How can anybody compare how God writes?

BEHOLD I HAVE GRAVEN THEE UPON THE PALMS OF MY HANDS; THY WALLS ARE CONTINUALLY BEFORE ME.  ISAIAH 49:16  KJV.  

And to mock, what it says from one scripture to the next, is very dangerous. When she gives an example of God putting earrings, on one, group, but getting angry with the next. Where is the fear of God? To see, His ways are not our ways. She is judging God Himself, in His motives.

Leviticus 20:28 is a reference she gives, its not there. That scripture does not exist in my King James bible. Check. Look it up, listen to the video very carefully. Its not there as a point of reference. About making marks for the dead.  That she gives.

That scripture reference is not specific to tattoos, but Leviticus 19:28 is:

“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”
Leviticus 19:28 KJV

A tattoo is a mark on the flesh.

I think what bothers me so very, very much, is first of all she is not using a Holy Bible. As a teacher, as a so called pastor of the word of God, her word is corrupt. And I won’t debate it, but her scripture references, are from bibles, that have been changed. Corrupted. She uses references of scripture, but they are not from the King James. As she quotes scripture.  And if this does not show anybody, how wrong it is to use different bibles, then I don’t know what to say to you.

She admits, she picks what she wants, and leaves what she wants out of scripture. Listen to the video. She says it quickly but she admits she does that. And I am paraphrasing her, When she says: “we pick and choose what we want and leave out what we want.” Well she does, she leaves out truth, Gods truth.

She promotes getting a tattoo, and also promotes pushing “religious” people off the cliff. She states she is on the verge of getting a tattoo, and actually defying what Leviticus 19:28 states.

But to promote throwing people off of a cliff, and get it over with….That’s evil. That’s not love. To make religious demons mad? Who gave her that authority? It’s just wrong folks.

Does she not know her words are recorded in the book of life?  It is for all of us.  We will be judged.

The subliminal message, in there is to attack others, who do not think or believe like she does. And again, that is just pure evil. Christ told us, in John 13:34-35, that we would be known by the love we have for one another. This is what my King James bible says:

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
John 13:34-35 KJV

The whole motive of her subliminal message is to disobey God. To make herself the example to have pretty clothes, make up, and a tattoo.

In the King James scriptures it talks about vanity. And if she gets a tattoo, she is using herself for you to be disobedient in that. Because she is making herself even here in the video an example.

“And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.”
2 Kings 17:15 KJV

She talks about Laughing, well, the scripture says, it is better to be sorrowful. Then to have laughter. She talks about people and that they want to see you happy? Well, food for thought…What about what God wants? See, you need to see that, she totally disregards the incentive to try and please God. And that’s just wrong.

“Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.”
Ecclesiastes 7:3 KJV

Her whole message, really does not promote, drawing close to God. To repent. To obey God, and His laws. To see the error of ones ways. It actually is defiant. Prideful, to say one’s ways, are right, and there is a great danger to that. Because God is not mocked.

See we really cannot have joy, or peace, if we are wicked. Or more importantly as God has called us, to be in holiness.  There is no holiness, without Gods law.  Without obedience.  Without repentance.  And a changing of ways.

A true sense of soul searching, with repentance, a hunger for God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, to please Him, is the only one who can do that.

To even take her thoughts to heart, is so disturbing to me, because I have learned the hard way to get right with God, one needs to take His laws to heart.

Now the concept between religion, and relationship with Christ is this. Religion is rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, and groups. But if you are being legal, which God has given us His law, to follow, that is relationship. We can only have relationship with Christ, when we repent, obey God, and pray, and seek Him in that relationship. Pleasing God. Avoiding religion, well what she promotes, is Joyce Meyers religion.

I think what also bothers me, and that’s why I am writing about it, is basically she is promoting, dismissing the law, because it makes one act in legalism. And that’s like saying, I am right, you are wrong, to God Himself, and it’s a turn off to be obedient to God.

She challenges the “law” And that’s dangerous, these are Gods laws. He is legal. And holiness cannot be obtained, unless we follow Gods laws. So again, call me legal. Because I love His law. I see that it protects me. I see, that by trying, and yes I fail, but I see, that if I attempt to obey Him, He will extend grace. But you cannot disregard the law.

The thought, many Christians have is that the law, is abolished. That we are free from the law. God did not flip flop from the Old Testament, to the New Testament. He does not change. We do. The only law we are free from, is the law of sin and death. Not Gods commandments.

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:2 KJV

There are many scriptures that attest to being legal with God. And that if we even keep Gods law, we are happy.

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

You know, I want to be happy in God’s law, so call me legalistic.

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:8 KJV)

He tells us, not to forsake His law. So that means if you want to please God, you get legalistic. Because He is the example to follow.

For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. (Proverbs 4:2 KJV)

The doctrine she teaches us, warns us according to King James scripture, is don’t follow people like that. I will not follow Joyce Meyers.  I follow Christ.  She is a terrible role model for Christ.  And one should never follow a person any way.

No matter what, they propose.  We are to follow Christ.  This is why you need to get the truth yourself.  Get a King James bible, and learn.  What Gods laws are, yourself.  Thats the only way you will grow.

And that is going to upset  some, here, but I state it because its wrong.

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17 KJV)

I don’t judge anybody that might have a tattoo, I really don’t. I have met some very nice people who have tattoos, even family members. But if we really want to please God, we know what the scripture says.

We know, if we want to clean the slate, we repent. God won’t hold it against you, if you repent. But the direction she takes in this, is very self-serving. And that comes from hell itself. The devil was always about the devil. Self.

What she proposes… is that It is not humble, it is not remorseful, to know and admit, the error of one making a mistake, in even getting a tattoo. The scriptures, when they are truth, will bring light, to help us see the error of our ways. But I see nothing like that, from her message.

And its sad. I don’t judge her, but I am called to warn, even the righteous. Who think this is right.

Its not right folks, its wrong. And if you think I am judging. Read Ezekiel 33 from a King James it says we are to warn. I am warning here. I am loving my brothers and sisters in Christ, so they know the difference. Love warns. You would too, if you saw someone near the fire. The fire of hell itself.  If you knew the truth. Her thoughts are very disturbing.

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: (Proverbs 6:23 KJV

In conclusion, knowing, that the truth sets us and let the redeemed of the Lord say so. I have been redeemed, so I say so.

I may very well get challenged by some of you, who support her, love her, and you know what you need to do, is pray for her.  Arguing with me, will not resolve this.  I know what the Holy Scriptures says.

But I won’t debate or argue about this with anybody.  I will ignore comments on this.  I know that I just have to write this.  My motive is to please God.  And if it really helps someone to see the truth, then praise be to God.  I praise God anyway…

Thank you.

PSALMS 107:20 KING JAMES

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO, WHOM HE HATH REDEEMED FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  

JOHN 8:32  KJV.  

AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.

Just ask yourself, with what I have shared, and what you can see, from the video yourself, why would anyone promote to you, that you disobey God?  Look at the fruit folks, this is how you will know them.  

Matthew 7:20  WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

Feel free to share this link you might just open someones eyes, to truth.

MAY THE “WILL” OF THE LORD BE MAGNIFIED IN 2018 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2May the “will” of the Lord be magnified in 2018.  

Speaking, and concentrating on that, gives me such hope.  Because more then ever, I am seeing who God is.  I am seeing His ways.  I am seeing my mistakes, that led to sin.  And what I have reaped….I am seeing How great Christ is, I am seeing His thoughts…..manifested.  

It is a release, so to speak of my faith.  To speak His will be done.  

You know, we all have desires of the heart, hopes, dreams, and even visions.  But if we leave God out of the equation, well like the saying goes, in scripture.  “unless the Lord, builds the house, we labor in vain.”

I am tired of laboring in vain.  To be honest.  I am tired of having poor, or bad judgment, where I made mistakes, or where, even things were not fulfilled in my life.  I am tired, of wanting something, and maybe even saying, it in the name of the Lord, but it did not come to pass.  Praying for something, but praying amiss.  And I think not praying for Gods will to be done, is praying amiss.  

YE ASK, AND RECEIVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ASK AMISS, THAT YE MAY CONSUME IT UPON YOUR LUSTS.  JAMES 4:3  KJV.  

Just saying, even here, but the prosperity message, is asking God amiss….He is not an ATM!

I want to touch base on this slightly, so maybe you can be encouraged as well, you see, I know this is my gift and calling, to speak truth, and inspire you.  Whether it be one person, a thousand, or even 100 billion people.  I want to be used by God, but I have learned….  

His will be done!

I never want to put a limit on God.  But I probably have, even in my own small thinking.  I want to get past that.  I want to grow.  I want you to grow.  There should never be a limit we put on God, because of who He is.  The earth, is the Lords, and the fullness thereof.  

But I truly believe, He wants us to seek Him for who He is, not what He can give.  He wants us to know what pleases Him.  What His power can do, but He has requirements, He has ways of excellence, that must truly grieve Him, when we misinterpret who He is.  Or even deny Him.  To me its very sad, to not see or know Him.  His presence, is the present, if you get my drift.  But His spirit, is Holy.    And He wants that for us too.  So we have our part to seek that.  To obey, to love Him, in obedience.  

His will be done, His righteousness, and Kingdom be magnified.  As I seek Him, all things will be added.  He says, all things are possible with Him.  All things.  

But there are principles, ways, commandments from God that must be fulfilled.  Laws…..

Laws that should be kept in the name of the Lord, and actually in fear of God, but sadly, many do not keep Gods laws.  Or wants, and ways, in the name of the Lord, through Christ.  

I took a break from social media, recently, during the holidays, to refresh myself, to fill myself, up, in the Lord.  I felt empty, poured out.  I felt like I was running on fumes, but before I did, I had a very interesting conversation, with a so called sister in the Lord.  

She was very adamant about promoting the “prosperity message.”   And her thoughts, disturbed me, that she felt the way she did.  Basically she said, that the Old Testament, was just a history lesson, and that anything she did, was covered by the blood of Jesus, and to be explicit, the way she communicated, she expressed, she basically believed, she had a “license” to sin.  WRONG!

Many Christians, have been taught, that we are saved by grace.  Which is true.  But many have the thought, and are taught by the blind, that the laws, from the Old Testament, do not apply, because of the new covenant in Christ, which is the New Testament.  So they do not think of the “laws” they do not try and keep the laws, that Moses gave, from God.  

Now, I am not going to get into a theological debate, with anybody, or argue and debate it, because there are some things, that may not apply.  But when you are talking about Gods’s commandments, and what to keep and not to keep, well I warn here, tread carefully!  Very carefully!  

Scripture says, we are only free from the law of sin, and death.  It does not say anything about Gods commandments.  

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

Christ who fulfills the law, became the sacrifice.  That is holy.  A big difference.  Compared to what is sacrificed   Please read Matthew 5, from a King James bible, to see, what Jesus says about the law.  

As I discussed this with this “wicked” woman, I realized, how lost she was.  I realized, how important Gods commandments are.  But I also realized how strong her convictions were, and because she was misled, she could mislead others.  She was trying to mislead me, and there was no way, I was going to drink that kook-aid.   That was very deceptive.  And one key factor, was she did not walk in love.  Her thoughts were judgmental, and very mean spirited.  Christ said, we would be known by the Love, and her fruit did not reveal that.  So I rejected her thoughts.  

And the first thought I had as I discussed this with her, did she think God flip flopped, from the Old Testament, and changed His mind?

His word, says He changes not!  He did not change His mind, from the Old Testament, to the New Testament.  He sent Christ to fulfill the law.  

MALACHI 3:6  FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT.  THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED.  

This is what Christ said according to my King James bible, on the matter about the law:  

THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF THE PROPHETS;  I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFILL.  FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL BREAK ONE OF THESE LEAST COMMANDMENTS, AND SHALL TEACH MEN SO, HE SHALL BE CALLED THE LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL DO AND TEACH THEM, THE SAME SHALL BE CALLED GREAT IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 5:17-19.  KJV.

She was trying to teach me not to keep the law of God, and I knew better.  So I could be prosperous.  You know what makes me prosperous?  Releasing myself to the “will” of the Lord, that can never go wrong.  Never.  

Please know better in this matter.  Do not be deceived by the blind, by wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote the “prosperity message.”  Keep Gods laws!  

And the first one, I would recommend, is repent.  Even if you do not think you have done wrong or even sinned.  Thats pride. And confess Christ as your Lord and savior.  Release yourself, in faith, to trust Him, so the will of God can be magnified in your own life, so you can be happy.

And yes, start using a King James bible, so you will be obedient to God in this matter, and the words you claim are holy, not corrupted because of disobedience.  So you can have holy vision.  True vision.

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

See for me, in the walk I have with the Lord, which is a narrow walk, a straight walk, in finding and searching for truth.  I realize more then ever, to seek the Kingdom of God, in His righteousness, but to release myself, to keep His laws, and to know His will be done.  

No matter what.  No matter if its yes or no. I just have to settle that in my heart, and soul, mind, and being.  

His will be done. So when you pray, remember to pray, His will be done.  His will…..

AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, WHEN YE PRAY, SAY OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.  THY KINGDOM COME.  THY WILL BE DONE, AS IN HEAVEN SO IN EARTH.  Luke 11:2.  KJV.

Don’t forget what Christ taught us.  That whatever we bind on earth will be bound, and whatever we loose will be loosed in heaven and earth.  

My desire more then ever.  In my words, in my spirit, in my fear of God.  It is to release His will to be done, in my life, in my family, in my health, in my finances, in what I do for Him, in even my friends.  Who He gives me, or takes from me.  

Being a friend to me in Christ is so important, but I have learned, He brings and takes people away from me.  And I accept that as His will.  

But I will honor His will to be done.  Whether someone agrees with me or not.  Now in 2018, and always.  

And anyone who does not have fear of God in this, is really misled.  Keep Gods laws friends.  So you can be happy.  

Happy New year, of 2018.

ITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0034.jpgITS ACTUALLY SAD AND PATHETIC WHEN CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW OR TRY TO LEARN KJV WORD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Iron sharpens iron, as the scripture says:  

IRON SHARPENETH IRON; SO A MAN SHARPENETH THE COUNTENANCE OF HIS FRIEND.  PROVERBS 27:17  KJV.

What does that mean? It means that we sharpen each other, as brothers and sisters, friends, in Christ,  with Gods Holy King James word.  By sharing it, by encouraging each other.  With love, By bringing light into darkness, to illuminate truth, Gods Holy truth.  To show others truth, to get them away from hells fire.  To show them, Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  

So you use it to fight the enemy, and you are victorious.  

You see the word of God, is a sword.  And it will cut.  It will stop the devil in His tracks.  

FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK, AND POWERFUL, AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWOEDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF THE JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART.  HEBREWS 4:12  KJV.  

It needs to be sharp, to be effective.  I am here even now trying to sharpen iron.  

It is actually very sad, and pathetic, to see the body of Christ in the state its in now.  Because I see a lot of sloppy agape.  A lot of judgment, a lot of Christians, who have embraced the prosperity message, and when they need a word, they do not have it.  

And if the words they do find, somehow or another, find a way to communicate the words are not holy word!  They are corrupt word. They are counterfeit word, because the word has been tampered with, and they disobeyed God in this.  

The KJV is holy, and has withstood time, (over four hundred years) and is stored in heaven and earth.  

BUT THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WHICH ARE NOW, BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN.  II PETER 3:7  KJV.  

When a Christian uses the KJV they are on the same page, with God almighty Himself.  There are many scriptures that tell us, to not mess with His word.  

And He says do not change it, add to it, or delete it.  And so when a Christian uses those corrupt versions, which I call a per-version, it is deceptive.  But God does not change in these matters.   Because He looks at those who do as liars.  

EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE:  HE IS A SHIELD UNTO THEM THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM.  ADD THOU NOT UNTO HIS WORDS, LEST HE REPROVE THEE, AND THOU BE FOUND A LIAR.  PROVERBS 30:5-6.   KJV.  

And maybe I can sharpen someone, to see, how important knowing Gods true, King James word is.  For it is anointed.  It is powerful, it is holy.  

And in these times that we are in, I see how, the enemy has deceived so many.  By not knowing King James word, by not using King James word, by not sharing word.  

The body of Christ is dull right now, sadly.  And pathetically.  And the enemy rejoices.  

Have you ever tried to have an intelligent conversation, or a healthy debate with someone, concerning what God says, and they try to articulate what they think or feel, but they do not even have the scriptures to back it up?

Now I am not going to brag or puff myself up, but I know my sword of truth.  I know what God says in many instances.  And people are so deceived, because they believe the lies.  

They follow the blind, because they are blind.  They do not obey God, in these matters.  They don’t know truth, so they put others on a pedestal, and are misled.  

And one thing they are misled in is in the fear of God.  The body of Christ is not taught that, and because of that, they err.  

I fear God.  Because there are consequences.  

THEN SHALT THOU UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.  PROVERBS 2:5.  KJV.

All I know, is when the light is not on, we are not shining for Christ.  We are not to hide our light under a bushel.  

NO MAN WHEN HE HATH LIGHTED A CANDLE, PUTTETH IT IN A SECRET PLACE, NEITHER UNDER A BUSHEL, BUT ON A CANDLESTICK, THAT THEY WHICH COME IN MAY SEE THE LIGHT.  LUKE 11:33 KJV.  

But have you asked yourself….  Maybe you don’t shine your light, because you don’t know KJV word?  And only you can answer that.  But maybe you need to get your self in gear, as a disciple of Christ, and learn it.  By discipling yourself. 

In fear of Him, to tell others the truth of the gospel.  For, its not even that people are hiding their light for Christ.  But maybe….Its because there is no true light in them.  Or maybe because the word they are studying is not true word.  And….They don’t know the true word, and they cannot shine for Christ.  And thats exactly what the devil wants.  

Shame on any of us, who do not shine for Christ!  Shame!

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

It says according to this word, not any word that has been changed.  Its very sad, and pathetic.  That many do not see the deceptions.  

That many do not sharpen their own swords.  That many are silent.  Now I understand why they are, because they do not know Gods word, and its exactly again, what the enemy wants.  

I could go on, and on here, about it, but you know my writings, you know I promote the King James.  And you know, I share word.  King James word. 

Recently, I had a conversation with someone, I love dearly, and I still do, but this person, who I esteemed highly, so wanted to challenge me, argue with me, debate me about word, but yet could not even voice it, or articulate it, because she had no true light in her.  

So, what did she do?  She tried to turn it around, and mock my walk with the Lord.  At least “I try,” I told her.  No, I am not the perfect Christian, but I will try for Christ, and what He did on that cross for me.  No, I won’t sit idle, and lazy, and not praise God, and give the enemy a place.  No I will use what God has given me, and at least TRY!

I will not be cowardly, not when I have the greatest weapon, my sword of truth, and I need to sharpen myself in these matters.  But I will try!  

For some day, I will stand before God, and I want and long to hear, well done, good, and faithful servant.  

To not try, is to not care, and I will not be counted with the goats.  Even now Christ is separating the goats from the sheep.  

AND BEFORE HIM SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS:  AND HE SHALL SEPARATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDETH HIS SHEEP FROM THE GOATS:  MATTHEW 25:32.  KJV.  

I submit to God, totally, I resist the devil and he must flee, but what has taught me that, IS the fear of God, that I have learned from my King James.  

The world mocks us, they call us “Bible Thumpers” and I get righteously indignant, when I see them do that, and yes, I will fight with Truth.  With my sword, of truth.

Because this is how we know our God!  This is how we learn what He accepts and does not accept.  This is how we get discernment to know right from wrong, good and evil. And for us not to use this tool that God gives us, is just down right ignorant and stupid,  to mock it, or ignore it.  

Sorry if that offends, ANYBODY, but its true, we are in a sad state as the body of Christ. 

There are so many Christians, who could make a difference for the Kingdom of God, and they do not shine their lights, and they do not know word, and they let the enemy win.  

Its sad, I have no other words, that can even distinguish it, because it is pathetic.  

What does God see? All I know, is never stop learning, never stop sharing Gods word, and never take that sword of truth for granted.  

I implore you my brothers and sisters in Christ, learn the word!  Keep studying daily.  Write it, and share it, and sharpen your own sword.  For iron, sharpens iron.  

I love you in Christ, but I love my Lord more, and I, as His ambassador in Christ, implore you, to keep growing.  In holy King James word.  

NOW THEN WE ARE AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST, AS THOUGH GOD DID BESEECH YOU BY US, WE PRAY YOU IN CHRIST’S STEAD, BE YE RECONCILED TO GOD.  II CORINTHIANS 5:20  KJV.   

You are on the vine, stay connected to Christ.  If not, your branch will be thrown into the fire.  

IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, AND IS WITHERED; AND MEN GATHER THEM, AND CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED.  JOHN 15:6.  KJV. 

Don’t think your salvation is in tact, if you have no light, and you do not abide in Christ.  Look at this scripture, among others, I am called to warn, you are called to warn, (read Ezekiel 33) but if you have no true word, you cannot tell them they will be cast into the fire.  

If ever another scripture was meant to tell us, our salvation can be taken away from the book of life, this one tells us, we could be cast into the fire, and burned.  You wither away, by not having true word.

You cannot portray the fruits of the spirit, if you are not obedient to God in this and other matters.  

WHAT FRUIT HAD YE THEN IN THOSE THINGS WHEREOF YE ARE NOW ASHAMED?  FOR THE END OF THOSE THINGS IS DEATH.  ROMANS 6:21 KJV.  

We cannot be hypocrites, or be in denial, or really an enemy to self, by denying these truths.  We need word, holy word.  King James word. We need to keep growing.  

Look again, I am far from being perfect.  I know my flaws.  I know I have had terrible judgment.  I have sinned, I have made mistakes, I grieve over.  But I take them all to the cross, even now, and humble myself, in the sight of God, and others.  And repent, yes daily. 

But I am not the tail.  I am the head, because HE IS THE GREAT I AM.  Because I am His daughter.  Because I plead the blood of Jesus.  Because I repent, And I seek to know His ways, and I implore you, please learn, His truths.  Please obey.  

Someday we all will stand before  Him. And He is not mocked.  We reap what we sow.  I don’t judge you in this, but I warn you.  In love.  I sincerely, try to teach you this, so you can be the best you can be in Christ.

LET HIM THAT IS TAUGHT IN THE WORD COMMUNICATE UNTO HIM THAT TEACHETH IN ALL GOOD THINGS.  BE NOT DECEIVED:  GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION: BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING.  AND LET US NOT BE WEARY IN WELL DOING:  FOR IN DUE SEASON WE SHALL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT. GALATIANS 6:6-9  KJV.

Its not too late for any of us while we breathe, move, live and have our being in Christ.  We can make a difference for the body of Christ.  

But don’t be lazy, let us not be weary in well doing.  Learn, share, and grow in Christ.  By knowing King James word.  You would only have yourself to blame, if you do not heed my advice in this matter.  

FOR IN HIM WE LIVE, AND MOVE, AND HAVE OUR BEING: AS CERTAIN ALSO OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, FOR WE ARE ALSO HIS OFFSPRING.  ACTS 17:28 KJV.

I implore you, before Christ knocks on your door, invite Him in, and repent of sin, let Him teach you His ways, for truth and life.  Taking away the spirit of strife that comes from rebellion, and sin, let Him teach you, how to begin…..Take your KJV sword of truth, and let it give you the mind of Christ.  To find your path and avoid His wrath….

MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE:  BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I WILL ALSO REJECT THEE, THAT THOU SHALT BE NO PRIEST TO ME:  SEEING THOU HAST FORGOTTEN THE LAW OF THY GOD, I WILL ALSO FORGET THY CHILDREN.  HOSEA 4:6.  KJV.  

Much love, in Christ,

MY THANKSGIVING THOUGHTS FOR 2017 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

My Thanksgiving Thoughts for 2017

by Christian Author Elena Ramirez

It’s a day before Thanksgiving, and I am grateful to God.  This year has been tough on me for a few reasons.  

Its been a struggle in many ways.  I have been challenged by life, by health, by friends, by enemies, by finances, by my own habits, and sometimes, you just have to grow.  But God has been with me, and guiding me through it.  I am grateful.  Thankful, stirring up my faith. 

I have grown.  And I truly believe I have in many ways.  I have had to go to the enemies camp and take back my respect.  Maybe someone does not understand that.  But when you trust people, and they immaturely reject you, or do not honor you, you stand up for yourself.  And you take back what someone has hurt, and abused.  Respect. 

You know when you are a child, you trust people to take care of you.  To be sensitive to those things and you need to learn.  And when they abuse that, and you don’t know the difference, you accept it.   But when you grow up, you see how perhaps, you were abused, and you want to break spiritual curses, or cycles, that hurt you.  I think I am in the process of breaking some of these cycles, or curses, because I see, I am the Kings Daughter.  I see, I am the head, and not the tail.  

But when you see, people, especially people, you esteemed highly, and they have no regard for honoring you in these ways, you gain strength, and walk away.  

So its sad, yet bitter sweet when you rise above it. But growing, is the goal for me any way.  I want to keep learning, and growing, for Christ.   

I have had to let go, and let God.  In a lot of ways…. For other reasons, as well…

These are things, that this year, I have seen, I need to be careful in.  With my walk with the Lord, and with others.   And its been hard.  Its been sorrowful, its been eye opening though.  

And I do trust God, I am so grateful for my family, and the true friends I do have.  I am thankful for my Salvation, for repentance, for God teaching me that I need to trust Him.  

But I have learned, in my own giving of Thanks, to be grateful for little, and big things.  To be careful not to get cold in my walk with the Lord.  To be careful, even if I vent, not to hate anybody.  To pray more.  I have learned a lot, that I cannot even put into words.  

To remember, though, not everybody takes these things to heart.  So my red flag is up….

To look, and see what God’s Holy King James word says.  And to try and obey.  As a disciple of Christ, I have learned to discipline myself.

But as I think on these things, that I am grateful for, I am reminded, no matter how hard life can be, or how blessed one may be, one must draw closer to God.   This has been my lesson it seems this year.

To seek Him more, to obey more, to be careful more, not to open spiritual doors, that are not of Him.  And through it all thanking Him, and praising Him.  And I make sure, I do.  I will not neglect this, by being passive, or not letting my light shine for Christ.  I try, and thats one thing, I pursue, to give Him glory.  

I am someone, who stays away from spiritual entities that offend God.  I honor God, and only God.  In fear of God. 

And I am careful what I speak…. I know more then ever, the power of life and death in my tongue.

But I know, I cannot be indifferent.  I cannot be cold, or lukewarm in my walk.  I cannot take God for granted, or people, or life for granted.  I must pursue His Kingdom, in His righteousness.

Repentance clears the slate, even if I don’t even understand.  But I must pursue God.  

Revelation 3, from my King James, tells us, that He knows whether we are cold or hot.  He knows if we are lukewarm, He will spit us out.  He tells us, to be careful with the blessings we do have, because some who are rich, think they do not need Him.  

They don’t know that they are miserable, poor and blind.  He counsels us to to seek Him.  Because He will rebuke us when we are wrong.  He stands at the door, and knocks, and if we hear Him, He will come and dine with us.  

Tomorrow we feast. As a tradition here in the United States.  Thanksgiving day, is a time to reflect.  And Christ is invited in my home, my humble home, but where love is, and where grateful hearts, reflect on His love, and goodness.  THANKFUL!

Some do not have these blessings, and its sad.  

But, I am just thankful to God.  I am thankful for everything He has provided for me, and I am even thankful for some things I don’t have.

Learning to be content, is peace.  And there is no peace with the wicked, as scripture says.  So, I pursue Him, in this world, that does not always seem to give love in return.  He is the vine, and I am merely a branch, but I can grow in Christ.  And produce fruit, worthy of His Kingdom.  But I make sure I stay on the vine with Christ. 

And I pursue Him, grateful, for who He is.  With God all things are possible, and I never let go of Him, in these thoughts of mine, because all things do work together for the good who love Him.  

So I am grateful this year, as I surmise on everything, and I praise Him.

Happy Thanksgiving…With much love, in Christ, 

Much love, Elena Ramirez

WHEN PEOPLE CROSS YOUR BOUNDARIES YOU MAY NEED TO BE CRUEL TO BE KIND FOR SELF-RESPECT ~ By Christian Author….


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWHEN PEOPLE CROSS YOUR BOUNDARIES YOU MAY NEED TO BE CRUEL TO BE KIND FOR SELF-RESPECT ~

By Christian Author….Elena Ramirez 

Sometimes you have to see there are boundaries no one should ever cross in respect. And sometimes you do have to be cruel to be kind, especially when you love people. You say enough is enough.

You realize if you don’t, you will lose your own self respect. And that’s a curse, because you don’t see, you are a child of the King. Sometimes we have to realize who we are in Christ, and what Christ did for us, on that cross, cleanses us.  By His grace.  

We are the head, and not the tail!  

AND THE LORD SHALL MAKE THEE THE HEAD, AND NOT THE TAIL:  AND THOU SHALT BE ABOVE ONLY, AND THOU SHALT NOT BE BENEATH:  IF THOU HEARKEN UNTO THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY, TO OBSEVE AND TO DO THEM.  DEUTERONOMY 28:13.  KJV.  

And nobody should ever go past the boundaries of respect. EVER!  

It is sad, but sometimes, people mistake a good nature, a kindness, as weakness, and they challenge that.  They cross boundaries.  But it is a strength to be kind, and nice, but there are those boundaries, where you say no more.  

You then become cruel to be kind. You stand up for yourself, and what is right, in the sight of God.  With courage.  You call it for what it is, with truth.  Because the truth sets us all free. 

This is how it is I believe with God.  He is extending grace to all of us.  But there will be a time, when hell will be paid, if we do not see His ways.  And repent, because we reap what we sow.  And His wrath will be revealed.  

Do you see why I have fear of God?  Because I do.  

But, I know the difference, with people.  It’s not a matter of pride, it’s a matter of dignity. And when someone realizes they crossed that boundary and is accountable they grow! Apologies. Respect go hand in hand.  Gods grace is not silent.  

It seems, I meet a lot of people who try to cross my boundaries, with disrespect.  Well I rebuke that as well, I am breaking this cycle by sadly walking away.  By being mean to be kind.  

It seems people cross that boundary.  In matters of my faith, in matters of friendship, in matters of privacy, and even in matters of common courtesy.  

I guess, I have just come from a place, where I say enough is enough.  Where I may even sound, or seem hurtful myself, and I have come out swinging.  And my nature as a warrior, is contributed by that, because I did have to fight to survive.   Growing up.  

Yet, I cannot let someone steal my peace, so I walk away.  Oh I know, I cannot cross boundaries myself, and I must maintain self-control.  I must be careful not to return evil for evil.  Am I perfect at this?  No.  Sadly but I do repent.  And strive for His excellence in these matters.  

And I have loved people, and sadly, many have walked away, or I walked away from them, because they showed no respect.  There are personal boundaries, that I will not allow someone to cross.  And the worst lately, for me, is the silent treatment.  

I will not tolerate that.  Because it is a sign of rejection.  And a sign of disrespect.  Its a form of manipulation, to punish me, when I know, I did not deserve that.  

I will not tolerate, obscenities to be spoken about me, or against me.  Or gestures that may not be spoken but that are the same.  As an obscenity.  I will not tolerate lies, as well.  I know who I am, in Christ.

For me, its a matter, of maintaining my dignity, in Christ.  When I know I have forgiven.  Others.   When I know, I do not deserve treatment like that, because I am a child of the King.  

I may sound harsh.  I may sound mean.  But if I have to be cruel to be kind, then maybe the person, who is being used by the enemy will see their own errors.  No!  I will not take that.  

I will speak truth, because thats the only thing that sets us free.  And maybe thats why I am hated.  But I would rather please my God, then people.  

And I am determined to prove my trustworthiness to God.  It is my goal.  But I cannot do that if I myself, am in denial.  And not walking in love.  And not doing my part, to maintain who I am in Christ.  He sees, everything, and why people don’t grasp that is beyond me.  

But oh well….  I cannot be cowardly in these matters of finding my own dignity, and respect.  

See we all have to grow.  If we really want to have a healthy spirit, with Christ.  And there are boundaries, we sometimes have to see, and say no, enough is enough.

Now if people are smart enough they will see the error of their own ways, and not cross those boundaries, but also, repent to God, and apologize to those you have taken advantage of disrespectfully.

That spirit comes from the enemy.  There are clues, that indicate this:

1. A spirit of manipulation.  (are you trying to make someone do something, by being manipulative? )  Thats wrong, and dishonest in the sight of God.

2.  Are you being a false witness?  Are you accusing someone else, because you just want to be vindictive?  You need to really see the error of your own ways…..

3. Do you really forgive, or do you bring it back up?  And if you do forgive, then forgive but don’t throw something back at someones face to be a false witness.  Thats a lie from hell to do so.  Because forgiveness is covered by the blood of Jesus.  

4.  Are you jealous?  That spirit, leads right to the devil, for that is one of his characteristics.  You have to see it.

5.  Are you in denial?  You cannot see your own errors, but you try to put it on someone else disrespectfully?  That is wrong, in the sight of God, and you will never grow.

6.  Do you have the spirit of pride?  That pride will always try to puff yourself up, and you will never admit your own wrong doing, because you cannot bear to let anybody see you humble.  Thats so wrong.

7.  Do you walk out of love, and make it all about you.  How narcissistic that is, and again, another characteristic from the devil.  SELF.  

Yes, walking away hurts.  Especially when you love people. But I have learned, as much as I do hate confrontation, I have to confront people like that.  And tell them, what bothers me, so I can get my own dignity back with respect.  

And either they take it for what its worth, and see the error of their own ways.  Or they do not.  But I do not need friendships that are not based on any kind of mutual respect.  I do not need to be anybodies punching bag.  

Being cruel to be kind, does not cross lines as well.  Returning evil for evil.  And I know for my own part, it may seem harsh, and evil as well.  

But I repent.  And thats the difference, because I know, the only way God will guide me, and help me grow, is if I am in that place of humbleness.  Yes we all make mistakes,  but I know the key is knowing who you are in Christ.  Not crossing boundaries, and yes repenting, and apologizing.

Just sharing some thoughts today on the matter.  You see, I need to get healthy myself spiritually, and I need to maintain those boundaries for my own growth in Christ.  Sometimes you do put up walls, so you can protect yourself.  So others will not cross that boundary.  

Is that being cruel to be kind?  I don’t know, all I know, is when I am done.  And right now, I am done.  Until I see something to change my mind and heart, back to respect. 

HE THAT HATH NO RULE OVER HIS OWN SPIRIT IS LIKE A CITY THAT IS BROKEN DOWN, AND WITHOUT WALLS.  PROVERBS 25:28  KJV.  

Love and blessings,

Elena

REMEMBER THE LOVE THE GOOD TIMES TO GO ON EVEN IF YOU ARE HURT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3480REMEMBER THE LOVE THE GOOD TIMES TO GO ON EVEN IF YOU ARE HURT ~ By Elena Ramirez

Sometimes, people have to speak things over us, by God so we can see it. So, this is what I will do for you, as my husband spoke this over me.

You see, I had a very dear friend, who I loved dearly. And we were friends for over 25 years. I loved this lady dearly, and you know what she loved me. She was a very generous lady, a very kind lady, in Christ. We both were prayer warriors.

But people change, and I suppose I did too. And well the enemy divided us up. I never thought, I would see that day, but it did happen.

And I won’t go into all the details, but when respect is not given or received, or when one is rejected, well one walks away. I did. Maybe I misunderstood, but since she would not clarify it, thats what I interpreted.

Anyway, long story short, its been over a month. Since we have talked. And I don’t expect her or me to budge in this. Its not that I have pride, but I know when I have done all I can and so, I know I could not add anything more.

But I found myself getting bitter about it, angry, yes I told her I forgave, and I do. But sometimes, you can war within yourself in these matters. I did.

Last night my husband and I were briefly talking about it. And I said, I just feel indifferent now. Not that I don’t care, because I do, but I just am disappointed.

He told me, you know, you need to just let it go. You outgrew each other, and just remember the good in her, she is a good person, and for what it was worth, she blessed you, you blessed her, and now its done. Its over.

Something about his words, ministered to me. I went to sleep finally at peace about it. I prayed God bless her. She is a very kind, and generous person, and she made me laugh, and we were good friends, but sometimes, things change.

People outgrow each other, for different reasons. I suppose she outgrew me, and not that I outgrew her, because I accepted her as she was.

But I accept her choices now, and I RESPECT, her reasons. Even though I do not understand. I can go on.

Perhaps, you struggle, with someone, from your past. Someone you love. A friendship, or even a love. Remember the love, the kindness, the friendship, and don’t demonize them, or hate them, but just release them, with the love, the good that bound you.

See you have to make sure poison, of unforgiveness does not affect you. You have to make sure you are doing your part according to Christ. I cannot control the situation, but I can control how I react to it. I release her in Christ, because she was a gift.

There is a saying, if you love someone, let them go, and if they are yours they will return. I love my friend, enough to walk away, and let her go. I don’t seek to return, to her, nor do I think she seeks to return to me. It is what it is. But I accept it now, with forgiveness in my heart.

But I have peace, and thank God for the times, we were friends, it nurtured me, and I rejoice in the gift of what it was then. It was a gift.

But some gifts, are returned to the sender. No matter what the heart felt intention was. If it was not true, it will show itself. See gifts are just something that is icing on the cake.

But if the sentiment, does not follow up with respect it does not prove itself.

Oh well. God bless your day.
