As God is my example, of course I forgive. I release the poison. I will not keep it in my heart. I will obey God.
But as God is my example, I do not tolerate disrespect. GOD IS NOT MOCKED. I release the disrespect and the mockery, and I stand my ground. I take back my respect from anybody who tries to steal it.
Disrespect is a form of mockery, and if my Lord, does not tolerate it, why should I? I don’t have to, and I can keep my peace and walk away.
It does not mean I do not forgive it means, I know who I am in Christ.
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. AS WE HAVE THEREFORE OPPORTUNITY, LET US DO GOOD UNTO ALL MEN, ESPECIALLY UNTO THEM WHO ARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.
GALATIANS 6:7-10 KJV.
I hope these thoughts will encourage someone. You see, long story short, if you have ever been disrespected by someone, it feels like they have taken something away from you. And its hard to regain trust, or even a sense of confidence, when you allow someone to do that. Even after you forgive. But Christ did not tell us, to trust someone who does that.
It has happened to me a few times, and even by family members. So recently when an offense occurred between me and a former friend, I knew I could not allow it. And I hate to say former, but right now, it does not look good. I will always care though for this person.
I had tried to extend grace, but that same grace was not extended to me. I called it for what it was. Respect. Respect was not given to me. I was being snubbed and ignored. And I took my respect back.
I walked away. And sometimes you have to do that. The sad thing, is, I love the person. But this person, would not give me the courtesy, that I extended. And it took me a while. To see, it, but really I see and believe God showed me.
I was in a spiritual battle for over two weeks, and I was trying to keep communication opened, but it was closed shut in my face. The Lord showed me this person was given to change. Said one thing, but yet, was being offended with me, and it just did not make sense.
MY SON, FEAR THOU THE LORD, AND THE KING: AND MEDDLE NOT WITH THEM THAT ARE GIVEN TO CHANGE. Proverbs 24:21. KJV.
This person was given to change. The actions, the “heartfelt intentions” this person said they had, did not match the actions.
I think it took me a while because sometimes, you don’t see it. Its subtle, its in subliminal ways, that people treat you, that may be indirect, but keep you puzzled. Or frustrated, because you cannot resolve issues. This is where I was with this person. But I did not see it, because love and friendship should be gracious. Should be kind, it should be honorable. I gave it, in grace. But grace was not extended to me.
But if you are tolerated, and not celebrated. Look and see the signs. Its not in the gift one gives, but in the respect.
You need to see what people really mean, by their actions. Not so much their words. But their actions. Silence is not always golden, my friend.
And if you are an opened book, like I am. You expect someone to be honest, and opened with you. Respect yourself, and reject anybody who will not respect you. Anyone who tries to control you, by that is using manipulation. And the KJV scriptures talk about that, as being like witchcraft. Nope walk away.
Remember its not just about forgiving. Its about knowing who you are in Christ. He did not call us to become door mats, or someones stepping stone. Yes, forgive so the poison, will not penetrate you. But respect yourself enough, to walk away. Know who you are in Christ. Put on your armor of God, and walk away. Quench those fiery darts, by His love.
I hope this helps someone.
Blessings, and love,
Why do we lose focus, and end up jumping in rabbit holes? Remember Alice in Wonderland? Well, she ended up jumping in a rabbit hole and looked for a way to get back.
We can do that, in a symbolic way. By getting distracted, by not working on our relationship with Christ. By working, by family. By money, finances, whatever it is that takes us away from Christ, is making us to jump in rabbit holes. Its called sin.
This can happen to the best of us, or the worst of us, whatever your perspective is.
So no one is really immune from this, even Christians.
And I guess, I am writing about it, because yesterday, I just had a terrible day. And I was not being true to myself, or to even what I was telling the Lord. I had to repent.
And I won’t go into details. Because I did repent, but I had to center myself back in Christ. And I had a good talk with my hubby, who is always honest with me, but straight. And not a crooked man, in any way. And I thank God for him. We all should be thankful to God for those He brings to us, but who will be honest. I am trying to be honest with you!
My husband told me frankly, you seem to have lost your focus. And I was amazed. Because he hit it right on the nail.
I am a warrior, for Christ, but sometimes, when I get in that warrior mode, I have a hard time getting back centered, to my peace.
I believe in truth, and I believe in being true to God, but when I contradict myself. Something is wrong spiritually. And I know myself well enough, to stop, make a change, repent, and get back to “finding Christ, as the way, the truth, and the life” that John 14:6, tells us about. That I need in my own journey of life.
I had to do that yesterday. And as I did, I felt the Lord, tell me to write and share this. Why? Because He does give me words, to write, and if I can help somebody as well, then I am back to doing what I should, and I am focused.
Life is hard. Even as we get older. When you are younger, you can get full of yourself, and try to take on the world. But when you get older, and you look at the progress, or the results, it can discourage you.
But with God all things are possible. And sometimes, well, I have had to stop like I did yesterday, and get focused. Because things like money, finances, dreams not coming true, self-esteem issues, can distract us, and we end up in that rabbit hole. Or unrepented sin. Things that we may do, in a cowardly way, or a sneaky way, or a way, that just is not honest. But really is not good for the soul.
God does not want that for us. Let me repeat that. God does not want that for us.
But we have to discipline ourselves. As disciples of Christ. We have to see the error of our own ways, repent, and get back to just looking at Christ.
Praying, reading our King James Bible. Extending grace to one another, because Christ extends grace to us. Walking in love. Being humble, being quiet sometimes, and just seeking our Lord.
As long as there is breath in us, anything is possible, if we are seeking the Lord.
And I love how God, shows himself mighty in small things, to increase my faith for even big things.
Even though, I had a terrible day yesterday, I was able to pray, and for someone else, as I took my mind off of me. Yesterday, I was on FB, and a friend of mine, who I love in Christ, and I pray for, as well, in other things, asked for prayer, because her kitty had been gone out all day. The kitty had not been feeling well, and she wanted her home. The cat usually never stays out long, so it was unusual behavior for that cat. It was late in the evening already. But when I prayed with her, and it was a prayer of agreement. I prayed specifically, that God would bring that cat home, before they closed for the night. God answered that prayer, and the kitty returned home. Glory to God.
But it did something to my own faith, that needed God, yesterday. I was broken, and so off centered. I had a horrible day. Because I was not being true to myself, or my Lord, and I felt wicked. And I base that, on scripture that says, there is no peace to the wicked. So I knew I was doing something wrong.
THERE IS NO PEACE, SAITH THE LORD, UNTO THE WICKED. ISAIAH 48:22 KJV.
And you know what the devil wants us to feel that way. Nope, I love my peace. So, I will do what I have to do. Repent, be humble, and listen and seek the Lord for instruction. So that can leave!
The other night, I saw a movie, and I don’t remember what the name of it was. But this man said, that which is crooked, cannot be made straight, and he quoted the Bible.
He put a slant on it, and thats why again, I don’t like to use anything that is corrupted, concerning scripture, because the anointing, and truth, can be missing from just a few words. And totally mislead. Who knows what Bible version he used. I am also careful who I listen to that quotes any kind of scripture. Remember Christ told us there would be wolves in sheep’s clothing.
But anyway, that stuck for some reason to me, and I kept thinking of my past sins, and I thought, of how I was off, and I thought, I must be crooked. I thought that, until I searched the scriptures myself. I forgot, that yes, I have repented. Do you ever do that? It can happen. But we have to bring everything to the obedience of Christ. Its just the devil, the enemy trying to bring condemnation. But if we have repented, if we have changed, well, its covered by the blood of Jesus.
But, you know there are a few scriptures that do say that. About that which is crooked cannot be made straight. So if someone did not do more research, they would think thats it, theres no hope. But I found one, that states, God can make that which is crooked straight.
“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:”
Isaiah 40:4 KJV
GOD, can straighten us out. He can take us off of that crooked path. He can make the rough places plain, because He is the way, the truth, and life.
I don’t know where you are, in your journey in life. But I will say this, if you want your path made plain, if you want to get refocused, and not tossed to and fro with this, that and the other. Including doctrine, you have your part. GET AND USE A KING JAMES BIBLE.
You may have done horrendous things in your life. But there is something to be said, by just bowing your head. Crying to God. Repenting, and pulling yourself up by the boot straps, and try to make that change with His help.
You don’t have to stay in that dark rabbit hole. You don’t have to be lost any more.
Even if you are a Christian, who has sinned, you can make it right by repenting, and seeking God.
But you cannot keep jumping in that same bad rabbit hole, if you really have learned your lesson in life.
I have learned in order to be true to myself. I have to be true to Christ.
Let me repeat that, and add: I HAVE LEARNED IN ORDER TO BE TRUE TO MYSELF, I HAVE TO BE TRUE TO CHRIST.
And, that which I add, is that if I do not honor, and respect myself, and others, then honor is not mine.
How can we get honor in something we don’t give?
Food for thought today, praying this helps you, if you are in that rabbit hole, and you feel lost. Get focused. Call on Christ, repent, but be true to Him. Not just in lip service, but your heart. In your actions, and if you contradict yourself. Get on your knees. Get on your knees anyway, to Him, that way, you can stand up to anything.
Advice, I take for myself as well.
Blessings, and love,
I want to be a soul winner even for the “lost” righteous. Does that make sense? Yea, it does, because there are many who think they are righteous, they think they are saved. They think their salvation is in tact. But its not. They think they have a license to sin. One needs to repent.
What they don’t know, is any kind of sin, separates us from God.
BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE: NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR: BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR. ISAIAH 59:1-2. KJV.
Lets look at this scripture in more detail. You pray, but you do not get answers. Why? We need to all ask ourselves that.
Look at that second sentence. It states; But your iniquities have separated between you and your God. Wow! That tells me, you gave your heart to Christ, believing you were saved. But your iniquities have separated you between you and your God. Your God! Look at it! So that tells me, you have sin, on your record. In the book of life.
Here, in Exodus 32:33 it tells us:
AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK.
WOW, double Wow! That book the Lambs book of life, always determines if your name is written in blood, by the blood of Jesus. If you neglect it, abuse it, treat your salvation shabbily, then yea, your name can be removed. Blotted out. Look up that key word, in a King James. (another reason to promote the King James to find truth)
The thing is, and lately, I seem to be in a few of these battles with so called brothers and sisters in Christ, they debate it. They argue it, they bring up other scriptures, that try to contradict the truth, but it can be lost folks. Salvation can be taken away…..
There is no fear of God. To many. We are to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling. Fear of who? God Almighty, who holds the keys to heaven and earth.
WHEREFORE, MY BELOVED, AS YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, NOT IN MY PRESENCE ONLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE IN MY ABSENCE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING. Phillipians 2:12 KJV.
Many, have the misconception, that works don’t cut it. But it does. Work it out! Faith without works is dead.
FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO. JAMES 2:26.
A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation or battle with a man, who did not believe he could lose salvation. He went back and forth, in the conversation. But what I noticed was that he always made it about him. Or “I” of this, or that.
And I was trying to get him to see that, yes, salvation could be lost. But, I believed he was saved now, but he just could not grasp that, the conversation was also about others. He made it all about him, and thats what the devil did. Self, I, me, me, me….Thats dangerous, when we cannot see beyond me.
You see, those scriptures above talks about works. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling of God. But we are also commanded, to warn others. Works, is just telling someone, don’t take your salvation for granted.
Anyway, after much patience, because this guy was getting on my nerves, he realized, what I was trying to tell him. That it was not just about him, but about others, who may think their salvation is in tact, but they are lost, they are “Backsliders” and they are in spiritual jeopardy if they die, because they would have unrepented sin.
He finally admitted, and I am paraphrasing his words. “I was lost, then I was saved, then I was lost, and saved again. But now I know I am saved.”
Many, have the misconception, that because they were saved, that it guarantees salvation, even if they sin. And that is wrong, that is dangerous, and that is really a deception from the devil.
Look, I can say this as a testimony. I was saved at an early age. But I had no sense or value, of how precious my salvation was. So I sinned. If I had died, before I repented, I truly believe, I would have lost my salvation. Once saved is not always saved.
And its dangerous to believe that, or to influence others that it is safe.
We are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33, and I ask please look at it from a King James. It tells us, about the righteous. And if he commits iniquity, all his righteousness, will be forgotten, and he will die.
Die! We are to have life eternally with Christ. Christ, died and abolished only the law of sin, and death.
So many have this misconception, that grace will cover it. That keeping the “law” of God is not necessary. That is so wrong, if God commands it, or even says it. It is LAW! Don’t question it, don’t reason it, don’t ponder on it. OBEY GODS LAW!
No. It only covers it, if you repent. If you have sinned. Do not misinterpret grace, or Gods goodness. He is not mocked.
When I was young, I was a soul winner. I have always tried to be a soul winner, but I believe God is directing me to try and save the righteous, who think they are saved, but are lost, because they do not know King James truth. They have no fear of God. They do not repent.
Its so sad, we have a battle, a big challenge, because so many are misled, misunderstanding, misinterpreting scripture, because they don’t use the truth, and the holiness of a King James bible.
It makes me sad.
In Ezekiel 33, that chapter I ask that you read, it tells us to warn people.
If we do we set ourselves free. I see it myself, the boldness, God gives me.
And though, my brothers and sisters think I am judging them, that is just a lie from the devil.
I tell them this truth, because I love them because Jesus loves them. Its not judging. Its warning. And warning is love. Just like Ezekiel 33 tells us to do.
Just my thoughts, but I want to be a soul winner, for the righteous, who are lost.
All I know, is if we clear the slate, by even daily repenting, we can ensure our salvation.
I feel like I am in fifth grade, and I have been given the assignment to explain this:
Do you want God to bless you, but you do not bless God?
I have to explain it. Its on my heart. It makes me sad for God. I actually feel the emotion, and the tears, when I think about it.
Why me to explain it? I don’t know…. but it does make me think, it makes me want to bless God.
I guess, because I am older now. I guess, because I see the error of my ways, in this lifetime of mine. I see, the wrong turns I took. I see the sin in my life. I see, the lack of love, I had in my life time. I see the lack of guidance I had. The loneliness, the self-esteem issues I have had. I see, I reaped what I sowed, so to speak according to scripture. I see, the gifts and callings I had, like singing, or even my writing….. And I just see, and I have said this before, I see, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train…
But what if? What if I had the seed planted in me, at an early age, to bless God? Not just wanting God to bless me, and lets be totally honest, because we want God to bless us, but if I had the desire to bless Him. Would my life been different? I don’t know. But I think it would have.
If I ever get grand babies, and I pray I do, I hope I can teach them to bless God.
But I can only concentrate on this moment. Oh if only, I could plant the seed in you, to plant that seed in others. So it would grow fruit, and other seeds. Perhaps that would bless them. But it would bless God.
I say that, because I see the world we live in. I see brothers and sisters in Christ, who are my brethren, but we do not all agree. I see, so many deceived, by using the per-version, of different bibles, in the versions they choose, that are not King James Bibles. That are perverted.
I see the Prosperity messengers, screaming, “holler for a dollar, and name it and claim it.” But they do not teach first and foremost the salvation message, to get people to see who God is. To fear God. To repent even daily, after Salvation. To make it right with Him, to see Christ as Lord and savior, before they even dare to ask for anything from God.
I see the lost. I see the atheists. I see people hating, and doing deplorable things. I see the fruit, that is rotten.
I see things, even in my beautiful America, that are no longer, sacred, holy, or even considered history. There is hate, among people, races. Authority is not respected. Or honored. Freedom of speech has turned into hate speech. Life is not honored, and the innocent, babies, that are slaughtered, daily, in the name of choice.
Yes, I see things, but I know God sees everything. And how that must grieve Him. It has to. These things we see, cannot bless God!
And there is no one, calling out to bless God. Or at least I don’t hear it. Maybe you do. Do you? I hope so. I hope, whatever church or religion, you have, has that motto to bless God.
And I don’t like the word religion when it applies to me, because religion is, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups. And I don’t have “a religion”, I believe I have a relationship with my maker.
My maker. My creator. The Lord God, who is worthy of all praise, glory and honor, for who He is. For all that He has done. For His mercy, goodness, kindness, and love. This being, who gave us this earth. And gives us life. Good food, and every perfect thing.
Think about it. Our lives are meant to glorify Him. We are created in His image. He gives us a soul. A mind, a heart, to choose him, or not. He is a gentleman. He never imposes His thoughts on us. He gives us a choice.
Who has throughout time, been there, yes silent many times, but my King James Bible has showed me, that He has had relationships with many.
Beginning with Adam and Eve. They had no fear of God, or she and he would not have believed the lie from the devil. And eaten the fruit. I always say this, but if only they had gone to God, again…. and asked Him. God would not have lied. He would have reaffirmed His truth. He would have told them, the devil is a liar. Believe me, and only me. But they did not ask, and they disobeyed.
And we all somehow or another, reaped that sin, of them, and it is the same thing today. We do what we want, and we do not ask God. How sad. But we can ask Him…. if our motives are right. If we think before we ask, whats my part in this? Will this bless God, if I go to Him in prayer first? Before I do anything.
No wonder God tells us He lifts the humble and turns from the proud.
I think its sad, because I know God would want to do more for us, if we had only tried to obey Him. Our world, would be different, if sin, had not entered in the picture.
But its not too late, or at least, I see that for me, any way. I can try and live my life, obedient, to Him. Whats left of it….To give Him glory and honor. I don’t want to leave this earth with that as a question. Is my salvation in tact? And how to bless God?
To think about blessing Him, before I even think about asking Him to bless me. I mean after all, He has done for me in my lifetime, is that too much to ask? Bless God….
Friends, I truly hope you take this to heart. I could write a book on it. As I could on so many things God has placed on my heart. But at this point in my life, I think I just need to focus on blessing Him, and in little things. A little photo, that I share, a little inspiration, that I call “just my thoughts”...a little prayer for somebody, and just a little chat, as I come to His throne….to tell Him thank you Father. But always acknowledging Him. Never ashamed. How can any of us be ashamed, when He does so much for us?
Thankful for the miracles. That I can say look what God has done for me. Every thing He has provided…..
The enemy has blinded so many of us. Even in our silence….where people do not say anything, even with courage, to acknowledge God. Cowardly, they do not stand for right. They have no David in them I think…. To go after the Goliath.
And then….Again with Bibles that are not holy. Where words are distorted, corrupted, no longer holy. Where the majesty of God is undermined, in these phony words. And, in stealing that praise that God so deserves. By even denying His existence. By changing His Holy word. How insulting. And even worse, you know this truth, but you do nothing.
But let me tell you a little about the God I know. Though He is love….He is not mocked. And He keeps His Holy word. That I call KJV word. I know His ways are excellence. I know prophetic words will come true. Christ will return. Christ will come for His own. And the world, will reap what it sows. The devil, and all his “accusers” will be sent to hell, and hell is a tormenting place. The wrath of God will be known. And many will regret their denial of Him. Because He cannot be denied.
If I could plead with you, I would tell you even in this analogy. Repent. Get right with God quick! Use a King James Bible. Throw those corrupted bibles away. Part truth, part lie.
Because we never know. Throw away pride. Get hungry and thirsty for righteousness. Acknowledge God, in all your ways, and He will direct your paths. Be obedient, not only for your sake, but your family, your loved ones, but more for Him.
That would bless God. That would give the devil a black eye.
Develop your relationship with Him…..
Its so sweet to know Him. Jesus, is the perfect example of love. And I pray, never to take for granted what He did for me on that cross. His suffering, pain, agony, and by His stripes we are healed. That means spiritually and physically.
I could never ever, repay Him for that. I could not. I know who I am, and I know how weak I have been. In so many ways…. it makes me sad. I did not bless God growing up… but I am so grateful at this moment.
That I just want to thank Him for everything. I just want to bless God. I am not super Christian, I am not trying to puff myself up. By even writing this.
But, I will say this….You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am, or what I have gone through. That even brings me this to write this. How dare anybody mock someones faith? With or with out knowing.
But He does know, and it so humbles me, that pride that characteristic of self is evil. Its comes from the enemy. And it has shown me the danger, that I know that is a characteristic of the enemy.
I want nothing to do with the enemy. I renounce him, even as I write…..
But I love Jesus, and I thank my God the father, by the Holy spirit….
I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.
But I want to bless God. I hope you do too.
Much love, Elena Ramirez

THUS WILL I BLESS THEE WHILE I LIVE: I WILL LIFT UP MY HANDS IN THY NAME. PSALM 63:4 KJV.
BLESS YE GOD IN THE CONGREGATIONS, EVEN THE LORD, FROM THE FOUNTAIN OF ISRAEL. PSALM 68:26 KJV.
O BLESS OUR GOD, YE PEOPLE, AND MAKE THE VOICE OF HIS PRAISE TO BE HEARD: PSALM 66:8 KJV.
BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL: AND ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME, BLESS HIS HOLY NAME. PSALM 103:1 KJV.
BLESS THE LORD, YE HIS ANGELS, THAT EXCEL IN STRENGTH, THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, HEARKENING UNTO THE VOICE OF HIS WORD. BLESS YE THE LORD, ALL YE HIS HOSTS; YE MINISTERS OF HIS, THAT DO HIS PLEASURE. BLESS THE LORD ALL HIS WORKS IN ALL PLACES OF HIS DOMINION: BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL. PSALMS 103:20-22 KJV.
I feel led to write to someone, to comfort them, to warn them, to encourage them. Do not let people intimidate you. God will deal with them. God is not a respecter of persons, He loves us all. But God will protect you, from unjust harm. Trust Him.
For, there are many King James scriptures that tell us about our enemies. And there are many scriptures that tells us what happens to the wicked:
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Genesis 22:17 KJV.
But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. Exodus 23:22. KJV
The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy. Psalms 145:20 KJV.
But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of the lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
Psalm 37:20 KJV.
I am a warrior. I learned to be that way, because of the own people I dealt with growing up. I did not have brothers or sisters. To protect me. But I had to fight.
I fought….In the business world, and even here on social media. And there are people, who only want to intimidate you, fight you, argue with you, and try to make you feel uncomfortable, or sad.
Thats their agenda. I stay clear from those kind of people. I won’t sit with the scorner. I won’t even try to let them think I agree with them, when I don’t. If someone cusses at me, they lose me, in even trying to communicate. I won’t go to that level.
Whether its in politics, or in religion, or in the work place. Or even your neighborhood. The jealousy, prejudice, or pure ignorance, the rudeness, that blinds them, will try and intimidate you.
There are people, no matter how hard you try to get a long with them. Their venom will come out.
And I do recommend trying to get along with people. In fact pray for them. Walk in love anyway, as Christ commanded us.
But it seems, no matter what you try to do, they will fight you, argue with you, or try to intimidate you.
Don’t let that spirit cripple you. This is a trap from the enemy. To believe a lie, or to stop you from being fulfilled in the promises of God. Trust God.
Maintain your courage, and just know, God is on your side. Just know, there are angels that are dispatched, for you. Trust God. Let this thing that the enemy is trying to use against you, make you stronger.
Its sad, because I personally have seen people, use something about a person, even personally to make them feel uncomfortable. As if they were superior. And they will try to manipulate you to think you are not worthy.
And I guess, even in writing this. Because I know. Whatever it is you may have, as a handicap, or as something that makes you feel inferior. Even your race. Which should not even be a factor, but because racism and hate is prevalent, they will try and make you feel inferior.
God can use that, and teach you, how to be stronger, even for someone else. You can get courage. You can speak truth. You can be someone who can rise above it.
Yes, there are some battles that are not meant for us to fight. And you need to ask God for wisdom.
And I myself, pray every day for wisdom in such matters. Because I have as a fighter been involved in things that I should not.
But, yet, there is something in me that rises up against evil. Or against, an injustice to someone else. Or to an accuser, who is so hateful. That you tell them. Knock it off. And you tell them about their own indiscretions, since they want to make you feel unworthy. Especially here on social media.
Where people, will say things, do things, that they would not in public. But something about being behind a computer, they get courage, to be rude and mean, and try to intimidate you. Don’t let them. If you know truth, stand… be still, and Know He is God.
Look, in life, we will meet the good, the bad, and the ugly. But don’t be a part of the ugly, or the bad, because you yourself, have been hurt, or intimidated by someone else.
Turn it around, whatever wound you have. Whatever that makes you inferior. Whatever it is that may have broken you even in your heart, and life. And just give it to God.
God will fight your enemies for you. I have seen this in my own life. I have seen God deal with people who have hurt me, and He has punished them. See they have no idea, especially if you are a Christian, what God will do with them. But they will reap what they sow. They have no idea who God is.
And its sad, because if we all would just see, how frail we are. If we could just see that their is an enemy. We would humble ourselves, and bow down, and give God glory, because there is nothing impossible with God. We would all be kinder, to each other, we would walk in love.
If all of us would just even apologize, for being sometimes being rude, or insensitive. We might soothe the beast. A soft word, turns away anger….
Because we are all capable of that. See we never know what someone else is going through. And when people are mean, or cruel, and they have burdens, sadness, God sees. And it grieves Him, when they are trying to intimidate His child. He will have His vengeance. But maybe he is trying for you to see why that person is mean. Pray for them.
I just pray, for whoever is reading this, that is feeling intimidated. Pray, give your whole being to God. Repent, yourself for even your part in it, if there is…..because maybe you are reaping, what you sowed. Now you are getting the tail end of it.
But, stay humble in the sight of God. Do whats right. Do not take matters, in your hand that would cause you to lose your right standing with God. Let God deal with them. But don’t let them intimidate you. Just know who you are in Christ. You are victorious. You are Gods child, precious, and beautiful in His sight, and He loves you. That should be enough right now to comfort you, and to pray…..
Don’t forget to use a King James Bible to search for your scriptures. For holiness, and anointing, that the others do not give.
Please share this post, maybe you will help someone who needs to see this. And may God bless you for doing that.
This is His promise from the King James:
And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible. Jeremiah 15:21 KJV.

HMMM, before I go on further, I need to clarify what I mean by that. I want it to be totally understood, I do not reject Christ. I do not reject, what He did on that cross for me. I do not reject the thoughts, God has for me. By His plan of salvation. I embrace it with my whole heart, and His truth. I submit to God, and even here, deny the devil. And resist him. I am so very grateful for my salvation. By what Christ did. I will never reject or refuse Christ. I know….I was lost, but now I am found.
But….What do I mean by that statement? That I refuse and reject modern day Christianity?
Well, let me just say, this old girl, has been around the block a few times. The church block. And I love my brothers and sisters in Christ, so let me make that clear.
But, I see, many, rejecting the old ways, and embracing things, that totally distort, and compromise, truth, and what Christ did for us on the cross.
Starting with the “prosperity message” that names it and claims it. Plant a seed, and fill your need. Its all so wrong, in the sight of God. I do not, as a ministry, even dare to ask anyone for a donation, because I never want to distort, or confuse anyone, about who I am in Christ. So, I do not peddle, or hustle the word of God, for money.
Then…. there are all these modern day bibles, that totally corrupt, and compromise Gods words, and truth, and they are not the same definition, by any means.
You don’t think the devil, is happy, and thrilled, that Christians, are not embracing the “Old” words? Think again. There is no power, or anointing in these words, not after God, said, over, and over again, do not change, add, delete, His words.
They are rubber swords. If you read my writings, you know how I feel about that.
Yesterday, I thought, I am going to listen to Christian music. And I turned on my radio, and a radio station, that is nation wide, announced:
“Theres a map, that can tell you how long you can live! We will tell you more stay tuned to….. “
And I just shook my head. And I wrote them a little message, telling them the same thing, as this….What are they into fortune telling now? Do they not see, and know how God feels about such matters?
But there it was announced, for the whole world to hear it. And I thought, there are some baby Christians, who think this radio station, is an authority in such matters of God, yet they are promoting it so to speak…. Gods wrath is on such matters. He hates, entities, that promote other spiritual seeking.
This is an abomination to God, but it is a deception, the enemy uses, because “modern” day Christians, have no fear of God, nor do they understand truth, because these pastors, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, have gone into our churches, and taught a bunch of baloney. That tickle peoples ears, and sugar coat truth, and are a deception.
But I will tell you, and warn you. To open your own eyes. To be aware, of the enemies antics. I will tell you what God says, and that we are to be careful to choose the old ways….
THEY HAVE CORRUPTED THEMSELVES, THEIR SPOT IS NOT THE SPOT OF HIS CHILDREN, THEY ARE A PERVERSE AND CROOKED GENERATION. DO YE THUS REQUITE THE LORD, O FOOLISH PEOPLE, AND UNWISE? IS NOT HE THY FATHER THAT HATH BOUGHT THEE? HATH HE NOT MADE THEE, AND ESTABLISHED THEE? REMEMBER THE DAYS OF OLD, CONSIDER THE YEARS OF MANY GENERATIONS; ASK THY FATHER, AND HE WILL SHOW THEE, THY ELDERS AND THEY WILL TELL THEE. DEUTERONOMY 32:5-7. KJV.
See above how it says, He bought thee? Thats talking about what Christ did for us. He paid, the penalty for our sins. He did not die on the cross, so we could have an excuse to sin. Grace does not cover that! Another stinking thinking thought, that so many have embraced as truth, from these modern teachings. But they think they can reject the law. We need the law!
IT IS TIME FOR THEE, LORD, TO WORK: FOR THEY HAVE MADE VOID THY LAW. PSALMS 119:126. KJV.
There are so many scriptures that talk about the law, but the teachings of Paul, by some Christians have distorted that. In the modern church. The only law we are free from is, the law of sin, and death. Look it up yourselves. But Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. Look that up as well, in your own King James Bible.
There is no fear of God, though, in these matters. Ask yourself, when was the last time, you heard a teaching on the fear of God, that is throughout my bible?
See this, and other examples, of undermining the sovereignty of Christ, just turns me off about the modern church. I could go on. I warn you, but I won’t hit you on the head like some of these fanatics do. Yes, I stand for truth. But I cannot make you see this. Unless you want to look.
And many are content, to just choose a path, that is not the old way. Even though God warns us. He tells us, but so many are deceived, and blind….. That they refuse.
This concerns me for my brothers and sisters. This concerns me, for the future of our children, and generations to come. If Christ does not return soon. Right now, the body of Christ is sick. They are crippled, and do not stand right in the sight of God, with all the crap, they embrace. I hate to say that. But the truth is not coming out, and there are no leaders who I even look up to, in the body of Christ.
I learned to follow Christ, not a leader. Because especially what I see, is so distorted, and corrupted by so many.
My rule of thumb, in searching for a church. Is love there? Is a King Bible used? Are all nations, and people represented in the church…. Is the old ways, taught? Does your pastor, warn you, to repent, even daily? Once does not cover it folks, if you go back to your old ways of sin. Grace again, won’t be there, unless we are humble, in fear of God, repentant. This is what cleans the slate. But these modern day pastors, do not embrace that. Its more like if it feels good, then do it. NO!
Just a thought today…. but may this word remind us all.
THUS SAITH THE LORD, STAND YE IN THE WAYS, AND SEE, AND ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, WHERE IS THE GOOD WAY, AND WALK THEREIN, AND YE SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS, BUT THEY SAID, WE WILL NOT WALK THEREIN. JEREMIAH 6:16. KJV.
This says so much about the modern day church, and Christianity. I cannot sit in a church, that does not embrace these things….even though I long to be a part of a church, and I so miss worship and praise. I cannot compromise myself to the rest of the program, when these things are missing. I cannot.
Well, I refuse, and reject modern day Christianity. In fear of God. Because I will stand before him someday…..
To each their own, is what I say, I won’t hit you on the head with my bible. Like I said….But I will proclaim this. For the glory of God. Modern day Christianity has lost its way. After all Christ did for us, as the way, the truth, and life. Its lost.
In Christ, Elena Ramirez
