HATING OTHERS MAKES YOU CRAZY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0069.jpegI like to watch people.  Sometimes I learn from them, as to what to do, and sometimes, I see what not to do, by what I see.  But what I have learned in observing people, is don’t follow anybody.  Because we all can make mistakes.

I don’t follow the crowd.  I follow Jesus….

I watch God, because His example is the greatest example to see.  When I think of Jesus, the first thing I think of which is the opposite of hate, is love.  He had so much of it.  He has this sweet spirit, that just attracts you to Him, because of His love.  His kindness, His compassion.  His sense of right and wrong.  Even His personality that has this soothing affect,  A calm, a sense of peace.  And to just be in His presence….IMG_1461.JPG

I feel like I am at a loss of words, trying to articulate Him, to describe Him, as I know my Lord, but the spirit of my Lord, is love, and it is hard to explain.  But in that love, I see nothing mean or ugly about him.  Nothing vindictive.  Nothing hateful.  All I see, is this love.  That is not silent.  But He can be….

We all look at God in our own way…..

But maybe thats just it, not everybody looks to God, as the example, and because of that, they have no true guidance of love.  Because He is the greatest example of love.  So much, that He gave His life, on the cross, so we could have eternal security.  In Him.  But those that do not know Christ, well they do hate.  It comes to them naturally.

So, when I see folks hate, I see something that takes over them, that frankly is kind of scary.   A sense of losing control.  Of self.  This to me, makes them crazy.

Hate….

BUT I KNOW YOU, THAT YE HAVE NOT THE LOVE OF GOD IN YOU.  JOHN 5:42 King James. 

Its not rocket science.  One can sometimes see, when folks either hate or love. Hate is ugly to me, but it seems to bring out a side of someone, that can make them lose control.  They say things, that they may not normally say.  They get angry, and something about hate, but they lose control.  Just observations…. but they go a little crazy.

Or some can go very, very crazy….

IMG_1473Sooner or later, this hate they have, consumes them.  Gee who knows why they hate so much?

Maybe something happened to them, where they got no resolution.  Maybe, they were wronged, and no one apologized, or maybe they just feel good hating.  Or taught to hate. Thats scary.  It may even be where they think to hate gives them power?  But hate makes them implode…

There is something very dark, foreboding, and black about a soul, who hates.  The darkness, hides the love that could be available, and they cannot see.  They do not stop to see with love.

Hmmmm…..

I don’t know.  All I know, is I don’t like how hate feels in me.  Oh I have disliked some folks, but I have never gone to the point of hating.  Even as a child, I would always catch myself.  To not think that mean, to be hateful.  I hope I never do.  Because then part of me, will lose the innocence, that I still hold onto.  I hold onto that innocence, of sorts, because it reminds me of being a child.  Of being in awe of beauty, there is nothing beautiful about a heart that hates.  Its all about self.

Love is different….

That child like feeling, that can look at something, and just react in love.  Even if it is pity.  Sure I get angry, I have been known to do so.  I think those that truly know me, know I have that side of me.  Sometimes, I am blunt, I can be harsh.  I can come on very strong.

But I don’t lose control.  Maybe sometimes I did.  Over react.  But still. To not get to the point, where you would think of hate.  To do something… to purposely hurt someone.  To inflict pain or sorrow. To use something you know about the person, to make them feel bad.  Or inferior, this is hate. But in that process, puffing yourself up.  Wow. That would be a point of no return in hate.  That scares me.

Hate seems to want some kind of justification.  Some kind of resolution.  But, to react with that energy, just does not seem to me, to bring out positive results.  How can it?

What brings on hate?  Jealousy?  Being unforgiving?  Resentment?  Bitterness, that enters the soul, that poisons someones thoughts?  Bad thoughts, that have been seed, but now taken root in the soul.

All by the way, that are characteristics of the enemy, of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

IF A MAN SAY, I LOVE GOD, AND HATETH HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR:  FOR HE THAT LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER WHOM HE HATH SEEN, HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD WHOM HE HATH NOT SEEN?   I JOHN 4:20  King James. P3110014.JPG

Have you ever noticed those who hate, and I am talking about the things that you see on social media, toward certain individuals, is so unkind?  Rude.  Demanding?  They seem to go a little crazy, to be honest.  There is no filter.  There is no moral code.  There is no sense of just being polite, or a sense to give someone the benefit of the doubt?

When I see some of these folks, they forget, what seems to be right or wrong.  They cannot see truth.  Truth could be staring them in the face, but this hate, seems to distort things, and they don’t see truth, they just want to see what they want to see.

Hate is a strange thing, yet there are things we are called to hate.  According to God.  Evil, is one of those things.  We are to hate evil.

YE THAT LOVE THE LORD, HATE EVIL:  HE PRESERVETH THE SOULS OF HIS SAINTS: HE DELIVERETH THEM OUT OF THE HAND OF THE WICKED.  PSALM 97:10  King James 

Hate to me, can lead to evil….

The remedy?  Jesus Christ.  Repentance, a soul searching to see, the poison in one self.  I believe hate, can be turned into love.  If we take heed to the King James scriptures.  The commandments the law of love.  To love God, to love one another, to forgive.

AND THIS COMMANDMENT HAVE WE FROM HIM, THAT HE WHO LOVETH GOD LOVE HIS BROTHER ALSO.  I JOHN 4:21 King James.   

Going to God, can show us that hate, so we no longer are ruled by that spirit of hate.  But by the spirit of love.  The enemy of God, hates us.  So sadly, you don’t want to see it, but expect it.  Christ told us.  Sad that more Christians don’t see this, or practice it.  Because I have seen many Christians, hating even others.  That they have called a brother or sister in Christ.  That is a Pharisee spirit, in my estimation.

MARVEL NOT, MY BRETHREN IF THE WORLD HATE YOU.  WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE, BECAUSE WE LOVE THE BRETHREN.  HE THAT LOVETH NOT HIS BROHTER ABIDETH IN DEATH.  WHOSOEVER HATETH HIS BROTHER IS A MURDERER: AND YE KNOW THAT NO MURDERER HATH ETERNAL LIFE ABIDING IN HIM. I JOHN 3:13-15 King James

The enemy hates when he sees Jesus in our hearts.  When we walk in love.  Because it reminds him, God had the upper hand, and actually kicked him out of the Kingdom of God, and he knows his destination is hell.  Maybe thats why the devil hates.  But either way,  that should teach us all something.  Don’t hate.

Remember we do not come against flesh and blood, but against principalities.  When I see hate in someone, I feel sad for them, because the enemy, has invaded their soul, with hate.  It becomes a struggle for them, this hate, they feel.  But it has taught me, to walk away.

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULES OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.  EPHESIANS 6:12 King James.  
IMG_0045.JPG

Maybe I don’t hate, because God has always shown me love.  In a world, where many have not.  Where many have not cared.  Where I have seen hate.  Even in those that I loved.  But something, within my soul, my spirit, said, don’t learn that….don’t hate.

Just My Thoughts, today.

Let us practice walking in love, as Christ did.  He is our greatest example.  The only way we can do that is by totally giving our hearts to Christ.  Ensuring our salvation.  Repenting, starting over…..

GOD WILL USE DESPERATION TO GIVE US FAITH TO TRUST IN HIM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3669.jpegGod will use desperation, to give us faith, to trust in Him.

I have seen it over, and over in my life.  When I have been “desperate” and hurting, and needing an answer, God has used those times, for me to seek Him.

But it has taught me, to seek HIM at ALL times, to be diligent, to be faithful to Him, because of who He is.  To pray, to read King James word for answers.  To watch my love walk.  Repenting daily, etc.

God cannot be manipulated.  He cannot be forced to do anything.

And when I see some of the teachings that come from some of these high profile ministers, they get it all wrong.  I will no longer watch them, to even hope for inspiration, because they pervert it all, by leaving a big chunk of truth out.

They teach a person, that you are worthy of Gods attention.  You are worthy to receive blessings.  You have that right.  They actually teach a form of pride.  Self-worthiness.  Pride comes from hell itself.  Grace, that ignores the consequences of sin.  These are not  Godly traits to have.  And yet people want answers, because part of their message they deliver, is truth, but most of it is a lie.  So they believe that nonsense.IMG_5044

And the part of that which is true, is that, if you are seeking God, to get his attention, to receive, and to have that right.  He is the one, that can answer your needs.  That can lure you.

But they leave out this part, where He tells us, though, that if we delight ourselves in Him, He will give the desires of the heart.  He says, if we seek His Kingdom, and His righteousness, yes these things will be added.

 

PSALMS 37:4

DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD; AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.  

MATTHEW 6:33 King James

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.  

But they seem to neglect that part, and leave that out.  The part about being humble.  Throwing away pride, and self.

JAMES 4:10 King James

HUMBLE YOURSELVES IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD, AND HE SHALL LIFT YOU UP.  

Gods ways are not our ways.  And so, I know He can use something, anything to make someone see the error of their ways.  But there are so many things we need to do to make it right.  On our part.  And one thing I have seen is repentance, is not mentioned.  Because in order to have a relationship with Christ you need to do that. IMG_1309.jpeg

They leave out the main ingredient.  That, it can only come by Jesus Christ, and what HE did on that cross for you.

What they leave out, is that you have a responsibility, to make things right between you and God, that you have the responsibility to repent, and seek Him, for answers.  Ensure your salvation.  Make sure you are pleasing God, first.  Walking in love, forgiving, etc.  Being honest.

Folks, God is not an ATM, and the “prosperity message” to me is so sinful, its so deceptive, it is so insulting to God.  But they use it.

Years ago, I used to go to a church, where I saw the pastor, was very generous to people.  And I admired that, but His “gimmick” that He used to the hurting and broken people, over, and over again, is that if we accept Christ, we are the “righteousness of God.”  Leaving out the part about repenting, or just seeking God first.  No, to him, you were the righteousness of God, and you had every right to ask for what you wanted.  Grace made a way.  Another abuse of truth. But the law, of God the commandments were not even acknowledged.

Then I did not realize how misleading part of that message was, well, because I was desperate.  I wanted to believe I was the righteousness of God.  Actually to think I am the righteousness of God, scares me, to think that.  Because its too close to thinking its about me, and one can lose focus. But that message failed to show, that we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  All of us.  Now there is a balance to that, somewhere, but I know we can miss it.  I have.

I guess, thats one reason, I try to be careful with judging.  Because yes, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.

But there is something wrong with many of the messages, in what God can do, or who He is, or in learning to seek Him, to be humble, apologetic, walking in love, etc.  And that is by leaving out what it takes to please God.

To just be more specific.  We all have our own responsibility.  Christ did His part.  On the cross, But do we forget what we need to do?

Yes, to please God first.  Do we think about that?  Do we fear God?  I don’t know I guess, I write this, because I want results.  But I don’t want to leave HIS truth out of the scenario.

But when I watch some of these folks, or listen to them, they come from a place where its so sugar coated, it defies truth.  Yet they teach this garbage, over, and over again.  I don’t even watch Christian television sadly any more.  Because somewhere, in-between the truth, and something that is inspiring they take it and pervert it, with phony, lies, that come from hell itself.  And the message, is polluted, perverted, and deceptive.IMG_1670

I think to the world, many do get turned off with Christianity for that reason.  And I believe God will judge those who had a chance, but scattered the sheep.  Even by the corrupt Bibles they used.  That were not King James.

JEREMIAH 23:1 King James

WOE BE UNTO THE PASTORS THAT DESTROY AND SCATTER THE SHEEP OF MY PASTURE! SAITH THE LORD.  

I try to explain, to others, that religion, as my own definition, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions, made by men, and  groups.  And they can get it wrong, but having a relationship,  by learning who God is, accepting Christ, as Lord, and savior, being careful to repent, will clear the slate.  But you have to search, and this is what I do.  To have a relationship with the King of Kings.

So I do my own searching for God, in my Holy King James bible, and by prayer.

They use folks, and their desperation, say in finances, to pervert it, and to give someone hope.

But they leave out the most important part, of how we must get right with God first.

Yes God can bless, someone, and even finances.  But what I have learned even in my own situation, that God has taught me, many things, but when I have been desperate, He has calmed my soul first.  He taught me to seek His face.  Not His hand.  He has taught me, who He is, not for what He can give, but who He is, in all His creation, and power.  He has taught me His laws, and commandments that benefit my soul first.

Do you notice, I do not ask for donations?  I don’t do that because I don’t want to use people.  And I want what I give, to the people, is from God, not manipulated, and not misleading to trick people.  And frankly, God provides.  I have my needs met.  Sure sometimes its tight, but I don’t lack seriously.  So if God blesses me, fine.  But I am not looking to manipulate people to get that.

Yes I write.  I would love to have my books published, but for the right reasons.  For the glory of God, not to get rich.  So I want to be careful, because I also do not want to have His truth, polluted for the sake of money.  But He knows, where my heart is, and I am not perfect, but I know He is.  I just find it all so humbling, that He teaches me things.  But He knows, I share it, freely.  Even here.

But why do some of these ministries teach what they do?  When you are desperate?   They do take advantage. They do that to gain power. That power, they neglect, has been abused by some. But God willingly teaches us love, for our benefit, by not always providing a way.  Making us desperate.  By not just handing us something, that we could take for granted, or abuse.  He can use that desperation, to give us faith.

Have you ever noticed, that there are many, who are truly blessed, but they don’t even acknowledge God?  They are so puffed up, they act like they don’t stink.  Sorry, to phrase it like that, but it’s true.

They use what they can get, and really have no gratitude, or thankfulness.  They are so mean, many of them, and well its sad to see.  They extend no kindness, or even sympathy to those who are hurting. It is so ironic, many of them are not Christians, and they even want to judge a person, for walking in love, as if it is wrong to love one another.  As a Christian, how dare you do that?  Wow.

Yet, and I wish no one bad, but I see they have no skills, no insight, knowledge, to deal with something if they were “desperate.”  In real life.

This is not good folks, because life is hard, and things can happen, nothing is promised to anyone, but if we are not desperate just in wanting God and His presence, we are missing so much.  Just in who He is.  By rejecting Him, they have no safety net.  And thats dangerous.  I want the safety net in seeking Him first.

No desperation, is a horrible thing, to be wanting so bad.  I understand that.  But I know God has used my own desperation, to teach me things.  To teach me gratitude, in the small things.  To teach me compassion for others.  To not compare myself, or to get in a place of jealousy. To teach me, that nothing that is given, cannot be taken away.  Don’t treat life, like you are the priority, and that others are not.  Don’t treat gifts from God, like trash.  Don’t.  Don’t treat people bad.  Like you are better.  God has a way, of correcting us, to remember things like that.

I could go on here, but I just sense, that many of us do not grasp, how fragile we are.  That without God, we are nothing.  Yes, I believe in preventative prayer, in some matters.  But this is where the fear of God comes in.  And many do not have it.  I do.  I think its one of the best things we can have, it keeps me humble anyway.

IMG_4943.pngIt makes you take stock, to be grateful for who you are in Christ.  Not for what you have, or don’t have.

God can make a way, He can take your desperation away.  But I truly believe it is by just seeking Him first.  Not by what the problem is, that you are desperate for.

It has me any way.  Yes, I am desperate for some things.  But am I?

I don’t know any more. About some things.  Or people, etc. Sometimes, its just easier to float, but I am holding onto Gods hand tightly, but thats where trust in God comes in.   For, I am more desperate for God, in everything, if that makes sense.  No matter what I long for.  And I do long for some things.  But, I have to watch that.

The Lord, is my shepherd.  I shall not want…..

And I won’t settle for not seeing that, in its magnitude.  I am desperate for God now, before I am desperate for anything else.

I hope this all makes sense.  I just hope we don’t get desperate, without truly seeking God first.  I think if we can learn to do that, that is a skill.  That will help us, when we are desperate.  I am actually grateful, to God, that He has used my lack in many things, to make me desperate for Him first.

Because if not, I might be just another spoiled brat, unappreciative, mean spirited, and hateful.  A person, who does not walk in love, or forgiving.  And I am grateful to God He has humbled me.  Many times over.  He has taught me to be grateful in all things, but to seek HIM first. IMG_3590.jpeg

Yes, He has used my desperation to give me faith, and it is a gift.

Praise be to God.

Blessings, and Love in Christ,

CONFUSION WHERE DOES IT COME FROM? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2007.jpegConfusion, in anything, where does it come from?

Well, I believe there is a spirit of confusion, that God allows.  And that spirit of confusion, will enter into a situation, or with a person, that really does not have a revelation of God.

This will also be with someone, who totally rejects God.  Don’t tell me you believe in God, yet live like the devil.  You have have no fear of God.  This is why everything confuses you.

They do not know Gods ways.  They do not know Gods truth, they do not know, or keep Gods commandments and laws, and so when any of us have sin like that, because it is a sin, not to seek God to know truth, there will be confusion.

In other words, it is a soul issue.

Soul issues, are not seen to make a distinction sometimes.  Because the spirit affects it.  Whether its holy, or evil. And the spirit of confusion, feeds on that.  It will continue to bring darkness into a situation, so nothing makes sense.  And when nothing makes sense, it actually “hides” truth.

Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  (paraphrasing John 14:6  King James) That scripture, is so fruitful, so inspiring, so knowledgeable, in those few words.  Because it is true.  Christ is all of those things.  But because Christ needs to be in someones life, to even understand God, by the Holy spirit.  That, if they reject God and Christ, they allow the spirit of confusion, to enter their life.  Or situations, without even knowing it.  This is a tactic, the enemy will use against a persons life.

And it will bring darkness, it will bring confusion, it will bring despair, and no hope.  There are many spirits, we have to be aware of.  And understanding this takes actual submission to know God, and what they are.  Knowing spirits, is a gift, that God can give.  But it comes from the Holy Spirit, and in revelation…..

My last post, I wrote about trusting my gut instinct, by the Holy Spirit.  God gave me insight.  But it is always a choice.  In matters, whether or not we will be obedient to God.  But God does give us clues, in these matters, and when confusion is there, one should ask, what brings that?IMG_0019

One of the reasons, God tells us this is to show us the signs, like this one.

WHERE ENVYING AND STRIFE IS, THERE IS CONFUSION AND EVERY EVIL WORK.  James 3:16 KJV.  

I have noticed this in some folks, and when I see it, I actually will depart from people like that.  Not only because I don’t want confusion, but I don’t want it for them either.  Jealousy or being envious, is ugly, and it does bring confusion.  So if I am the cause of that, because someone envies me, or is jealous, why would I want to contribute to someone sinning?

Even if you love these folks.  Sometimes, you have to break these spirits off of you.  And it can be difficult if you love someone.  But, one needs wisdom.  This is an evil work of the enemy, that he uses to hurt and deceive people.  Folks need to get smart.  And see, what they are contributing to, when jealousy or envy gets in the way.  I do always recommend repenting.

Don’t forget, this is why the devil was kicked out of heaven, because of his jealousy.  This is why it contributes to evil works, this is his characteristic.  If you are jealous of somebody, you better stop and see, what you are doing, because this will make evil works.  Do you want answers to prayer?  Then stop the confusion. IMG_2118.jpg

Sad thing though, some people just will not hear truth any more.  And I personally do not have the energy to try and make people understand.  Not any more.

Also, manipulation will bring confusion.  If you see someone trying to manipulate a situation, or change it, to control an outcome, well thats bringing a spirit of confusion, to one self, along with trying to confuse others.  We should always, want to present things honest in the sight of God, so confusion, or other spiritual matters, that are not good, manifest.

One is never confused, if walking right with God.

IN THEE, O LORD, DO I PUT MY TRUST:  LET ME NEVER BE PUT TO CONFUSION.  PSALMS 71:1.  King James. 

See, we have to understand, and when I wrote my book, My Secret Principles, How To Have Faith. (http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com) we need to understand there are principles.  Like what goes up, comes down.

One has to see, that things we do, can by the spirit, be manifested.  By the principles God has placed.  And confusion is one of those spirits, you need to watch and look, to see, what causes it.  I don’t ever want a spirit of confusion, in fact, I will rebuke it here, because I want to know what God says.  I want to obey, and I don’t want confusion in my life.

Yesterday, someone wrote, that it is so difficult to be in the spirit of God.  And I told that person, not if you are obedient.  See, obedience to God makes all the difference, you don’t struggle.  You are not confused.  I related it to even the bible one uses, I obey God, by using Holy King James word, and if God says it, I believe it. That settles it.  The enemy, is the one that always questions things.  Remember how he used that to deceive Eve?  Anyway….The key in that, is submitting to God.  If we submit to God, and resist the devil.  There is no confusion, there is no battle in the flesh.

This is very ironic, to begin with, because this person, has rejected my thoughts on using the King James, in the past, and his pride, will not allow him to communicate with me, anyway.  So he did not respond to my thoughts on this.  But I see, he has walked out of love, and there again, is his struggle.  Not mine, if I did not love him, I would not tell him truth.  But he is the one rejecting truth, so yes I see his struggle in obedience.  But oh well….

Life can be frustrating on its own, without a spirit of confusion.  But I do not have to be frustrated, if I have the spirit of peace.  So there is always a remedy with God.  As I watch my words here. So, no I reject the spirit of confusion, and plead the blood of Jesus, in matters like this.

IMG_5024.jpegI see our society very confused, in many matters.  Because they do not take to heart, what God says about things, and I will touch base on this problem of gender identification, and even climate change.  They are not looking at God, to see the answer, as to why these things happen.  And folks are confused in these matters.

There are only two genders.  Boy and girl.  It was never a problem before.  But the spirit of perversion, has entered into the situation, and parents who do not guide their child, into knowing what gender they are, the “confusion” will be set in.  God created female and male, and created us also in His image.  I actually feel sorry for children who are so misguided by these ways of the world.  That parents do not teach their children to do as boys do, or to do as girls do.  As God gave the example.

Also with climate change.

They are instilling fear, and frankly its a hoax.  Yes, we all need to be good stewards of our world, and take care of things, but when they say climate change.  They forget who created the heavens and the earth, who made the principles in place for weather, and they disregard God.  They should read Genesis 8:22 KJV to see what God says about that, and more in Genesis.  But, there again, the spirit of “confusion” is evident.

And when I see some journalists, politicians, movie stars, etc. talking about things, that make no sense, they are ignorant to Gods truth, and it shows.  Sad thing though, is because they have the forum, they feed that confusion to others.   The blind, leading the blind.

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  King James. 

Leaving God out of anything, brings confusion.  And I say that by my own mistakes, misjudgment, and trial and error.  See, when I was in sin, and did not walk in the ways of the Lord, I was lost, and in darkness.  I was very confused.  This is why I am not ashamed of who I am in Christ, God has shown me so much.  Who cares what the world thinks, or people, they don’t live my life!  I give God glory, for taking the spirit of confusion away from me.  But I repented….

Sin does that folks, I could write another book on this, but I am trying to just give you something, to search for to understand, as to why you might have confusion.

If God is not in it, His ways, His truth, His laws, there will be confusion.  You can see the signs.  If not, you are not looking. And if you do get a clue in this.  Get a King James bible. It is holy, it is anointed, and it is not changed.  Read it daily.

DSC_0020.jpgIf you are reading something else, you are not being taught by the Holy Spirit.  Because of its corruption.  This is exactly what the enemy wants to do, to stop you from knowing truth, and to keep you in confusion.  This is so important, and the body of Christ needs to wake up, and be in unity with Christ in this matter.

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

Blessings, and love,

WHEN THE ODDS SEEM TO BE AGAINST YOU THEY ARE NOT TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3171.jpegHave you ever felt like the odds were against you?  That no matter what you do, you just don’t seem to have any success?  Its enough to make you have a pity party.  But don’t do that.

IMG_3447.jpgLife is hard.  Lets be honest.  But God has His ways….

And well sometimes, you may even be born into circumstances, that just never seem to be in your favor.

The odds, may be against you.  And you may settle for less.  You may even make it worse, by your own decisions.  But, there is a time of reflection, when you listen to Gods voice, and He says;

I GOT THIS…. I AM.

I AM.  HE IS!  GLORY TO GOD!

Remember when God told Moses that?  Remember the burning bush?  And then think of all the miracles God did for the Israeli’s, because He loved them.  He used Moses in a great and mighty way.

So you have to search for God.  Do you hear me, no let me rephrase that.  Do you hear God?  Because He is speaking to you right now, if you just listen.  Please listen.

Maybe you don’t hear His voice clearly.  Maybe there is static. Maybe it just does not seem clear.  So what can you do on your part?

Well, I share this.  Because I learned the hard way.  Start off with repenting to God.  Even if you don’t feel like you have not sinned.  Repent.  He wants a humble heart.  We have to understand God is holy.  He has standards and ways that are beyond our comprehension.  We cannot treat Him like an equal.  He is God almighty.  There is no one else like HIM.  No one.

IMG_0050.jpgNot even the ugly old devil, who yes, tries to puff himself up, and exalt himself.  But he was just an angel.  He does not have the authority, or the power like God.  Don’t give the devil any place.  God and him, are not equals.  So, remember that.  Remember to submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee.

Fear God, if you are not doing that, you are not really seeing who God is, in matters like the odds being against you.

See you need to change the odds in your favor, and God can do that.

Another thing is if you are searching for God, and you are using a corrupt bible, you will get static.  I tell you all this, over, and over again, because it is my calling.  But folks, do not really understand, the disservice they are doing to themselves, when they use something that is no longer holy.

Christ said, we would know His voice, and to another we would not follow. Its not Gods voice you are hearing there folks.  When you use another bible version, besides the King James.  Its man, and man is not holy.  God has commanded us not to change His words.  You have to improve the odds, in your favor, by being obedient to God.

Look, I kind of understand how the odds can be against a person.  Maybe because you feel that because of your race.  But God does not play the race card, he is not a respecter of persons.  He loves us all, we were all created in his image.  But sadly some folks do play the race card, so you may feel the odds against you.  Let God deal with them.  He will.  But, don’t play it yourself.  That will make you the victim, not victorious…

But don’t let race stop you.  God can make a way for you where there is no way.

Maybe you feel like the odds are against you because of your education.  Well, keep studying, keep going for the goals, and let God open the doors.

I think living in the United States is one of the greatest blessings God has given me, and I am so grateful, that my ancestors as well, were born here, in the United States.  From up to the third generation, I believe.  So those odds are in my favor.

But truth be known, it has been hard for me in some ways.  And I can relate to feeling like the odds are against me.  But God always works it out for me, and I have to remind myself, of past prayers, that are testimonies, to His goodness.

But, even though I am older, and some doors have not opened, and it did seem like the odds were against me in some ways.  I guess, I could go down that path, but I refuse.  I refuse, to let those circumstances, dictate to me, who I am, or was.

Every day God gives me, I try to prove my worth to Him, but also to myself.  Because if I don’t, then I would listen to the enemy, and I know the enemy, would bring condemnation.  See faith without works is dead.  Thats King James scriptural.

There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ.  Condemnation, brings torment, it brings sadness, and it steals hope from a person.  No, I am covered by the blood of Jesus, and I hold onto that, with all my might.  It grieves me that my sins put Him on the cross.  I think when we see that, we can be so humbled before Him, because it changes our spirits, it changes our lives. What an awesome, mighty God we serve who loves us so much.  Yet I know it pained Him, so we must never take it for granted. Never.

THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION TO THEM WHICH ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT.  FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. ROMANS 8:1-2.  King James.

Folks do you, see the law we are free from?  The law of sin, and death.  Not Gods commandments, and laws.  And this is where many are deceived, because they don’t think they need Gods laws.  But even in Malachi 4:4 the last chapter of the Old Testament it says, we need the law.  Look it up.  From a King James.

But if we try to keep the law, this helps our odds.

Because I realize, the odds, are never against God ever.IMG_0047.jpg

Don’t get discouraged, have hope, never give up.  Never.  Whatever it is that is against you, including health, or whatever, trust God.  And if anything make it right with him.

Go in that secret place with God.  You may need to close a door, be quiet.  But go there, and just search for Him. IMG_4517.jpg

Repent, start all over.  If you think about it, every day we are given is a chance, to improve those odds.  Let God, take over for you.  Start your day, praying, praising Him, and believing for your circumstances to change.

After all He tells us, nothing is impossible with Him.

The odds are never against God.  Never.

 

 

 

Much love, In Christ,

TRUSTING YOUR GUT INSTINCT WHEN ITS COMPELLED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3983.jpegTrusting your gut instinct…..How do you do that with confidence?

By the Holy Spirit. I have learned, to trust my gut instinct.  When it comes to people, situations, etc.  You know when you get those vibes, whether they are good or bad.

IMG_3667.jpgIt has been a challenge for me in many ways, because there were times, especially, in my youth, when I did not make the best choices.  I had terrible instincts.  Bad judgement. And I know, I have made mistakes in this.  But seeking God to guide you, will give you a better sense.

Remember Christ is the shepherd, He will guide you.  He will show you by the Holy Spirit.

Now, there are times, I get a vibe about something, or someone, and I test, or try the spirit, like we are called to do.  And that may reveal something….

I JOHN 4:1 KING JAMES 

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

I have learned, you always have to be in prayer.  I have learned, to know what my King James bible says about people.  So, I always do look for signs.

It would be a wonderful world, if we could always trust people, or if we could give someone the benefit of the doubt.  But when those signals from God, come to me, with a nagging sense, and for me to beware.  I do listen to that small voice, that is the Holy Spirit.IMG_3624.jpg

King James scripture tells us, God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  So I take that to heart as well.  Yet, when I feel like something is off, or there are trust issues, with people, or whatever, I do pray specifically in that matter.

II TIMOTHY 1:7 KING JAMES 

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR: BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.  

It can be a balance….But we really need discernment to understand how to weigh the spirits in matters like this.

PROVERBS 11:1 KING JAMES

A FALSE BALANCE IS ABOMINATION TO THE LORD:  BUT A JUST WEIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.  

We are given discernment.  Discernment from God, will tell you whether or not, something is good or evil.  There, the Holy Spirit, will advise you, and you will get those vibes, or get a gut instinct about something, or someone.

MALACHI 3:18  KING JAMES

THEN SHALL YE RETURN, AND DISCERN BETWEEN THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED, BETWEEN HIM THAT SERVETH GOD AND HIM THAT SERVETH HIM NOT.  

DSC_0100.jpgI have learned to obey that small voice.  When it comes to people, or when it comes to situations.  I have actually been afraid to disregard that voice.  Thats how close, I feel to God, when I am not sure.  Because I trust God.

JOB 34:16 KING JAMES

IF NOW THOU HAST UNDERSTANDING, HEAR THIS:  HEARKEN TO THE VOICE OF MY WORDS.  

But whether or not I am right or wrong, I don’t want to always test that.  I want to obey God.  That is where my trust comes from.  Or reinforces things for me.  When, I am doing everything, I can in my own ability to pray, to walk in love, to repent, to be reading good Holy King James word, so I can know.  It gives me a sense of confidence to trust my instincts.

But I always have to release my trust to God.  In prayer.

There are times, when we are not sure, and knowing this, God will send a “witness in the spirit”  It will be something, or someone God will send, to confirm, those feelings.  To know truth in a matter.

ROMANS 8:16 KING JAMES

 THE SPIRIT ITSELF BEARETH WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT, THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.  

I really try not to be led by my feelings, but what God says, but we have those feelings for a reason.  And if you know yourself, and more than anything if you know God, you can trust those vibes.

The key though, is to know yourself, if you are actually in the right spirit.  See, if you are messing with things, other entities, not obeying God, walking out of love, not forgiving, and you get a sense about someone or something, you could be deceived, misled.  Exactly what the enemy wants you to do.

There have been times, where I sensed, don’t go to a place.  Or don’t trust that person.  And I obey.  If I don’t that nagging feeling does not leave me.

Being close to God, will enable the gift of discernment.  The gift of receiving, understanding, knowledge, truth, from the Holy Spirit.  But don’t grieve the Holy Spirit.  Thats our responsibility.

I hope this helps, and will encourage you.  If you are not sure, then don’t do anything, till you get clarification, or more of an answer from God, but be careful.

Sometimes, no answer, is the answer…..especially if you have no peace, in a decision.

He tells us, He blesses us without sorrow.  So if it looks like sorrow might be attached to it, that probably is not from God.

PROVERBS 10:22 KING JAMES

THE BLESSING OF THE LORD, IT MAKETH RICH, AND HE ADDETH NO SORROW WITH IT. 

We do need to fine tune this gift, but it starts with a clean slate.  Repentance, prayer, and obeying God, because in a moment, He could speak, and you need to just know, that you know, that gut instinct is true.  Being prayerful, being consistent in seeking God, reading good King James word, is so important. IMG_3502.jpg

Ask God for the gift of discernment, so you can trust your instincts more so….

So He can guide you.

I KINGS 3:9 KING JAMES

GIVE THEREFORE THY SERVANT AN UNDERSTANDING HEART TO JUDGE THY PEOPLE, THAT I MAY DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD:  FOR WHO IS ABLE TO JUDGE THIS THY SO GREAT A PEOPLE?  

Blessings, and love,

HAPPINESS AND DEPRESSION AND HOW I DEAL WITH IT WITH GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0518.jpegI am always aware, how the enemy makes things about “me, me, me”, and so even in this title, I don’t want to address happiness and depression, from a narcissistic point of view, or just about me, because God is love.

The enemy, is not love.  The enemy, only comes to kill steal, and destroy, and that includes your joy, or your happiness.  Christ said, that He came to destroy the works of the enemy, and with him, we “might” have life abundantly.

IMG_0036.JPG
Today, I woke up sad.  I felt lonely.  I grieved the loss of three friends, that I loved very dearly, for different reasons, yet, they are no longer a part of my life.  I have been dealing with it, on and off.  Because I truly loved them.  It happened with two both at once.  This was about two years ago.  And another just about five months ago. For different reasons. I don’t want to get into why, they are not, in my life, because I probably had a part of it as much as they did, yet I did see the enemy interfere, so no this is not to blame anyone.

No, I write this, as much, as I want to just acknowledge, that we can be happy, and we can be depressed.  That sense of loss, and sadness, made me depressed today.  But depression happens.

And for different reasons.  We all have moments in life, things that we experience, that can either bring joy, and happiness, or sadness, and depression.  But I want to acknowledge where I get my strength, and my joy from.  And just as a thought, happiness, and depression, can come and go, for different reasons.  Some things will trigger that.  So this can be an on going process…..

IMG_4064 2.jpegTHEN HE SAID UNTO THEM, GO YOUR WAY, EAT THE FAT, AND DRINK THE SWEET, AND SEND PORTIONS UNTO THEM FOR WHOM NOTHING IS PREPARED:  FOR THIS DAY IS HOLY UNTO OUR LORD:  NEITHER BE YE SORRY; FOR THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH.  Nehemiah 8:10  King James.  

There are so many scriptures on  joy and happiness, so I recommend you do your own search in a King James.  And yes, of course, you know I recommend only that bible.

There are scriptures that tell us clues, and secrets to happiness:

But this one, reminds me of when we are not happy, when we are depressed.  When we have no vision.  See, when you are depressed, it is hard to see out of the box.  It is hard to see beyond, what you are feeling.  You can lose hope.  One can actually give up, and I hope to never do that.  So you can lose your vision.  But God can see.  So I take this one to my heart….

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

This scripture says it so clear.  Keep Gods laws.  To be happy.  They discard old covenant, for the new covenant.  Thats just wrong.  Now, to many Christians who have been taught this incorrectly, they have no understanding about Gods laws, because they think grace covers it.  So they don’t search for Gods laws.  But God did not flip flop.  He stays the same.

THE STATUTES OF THE LORD ARE RIGHT, REJOICING THE HEART:  THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD IS PURE, ENLIGHTENING THE EYES.  PSALMS 19:8 King James. 

Be careful, as you read this, it does not state statues, which is idolatry to God, it states statutes, which are His ways….

Anyway…

But when analyzing depression or happiness, I have learned, to be careful not to compare myself to others, because well, that can bring out other emotions, like jealousy, or hate, or just a sense of low self-esteem.  Or even pride, where you might think you are better than someone else, because they have gone through something, but you think you are above that.

I would warn here, be careful with that.Version 2

I do always want to be understanding.  But when someone is going through something, including myself, nobody really cannot understand, but God.

I learned that even lately, with another friend.  Who I just love, but I know she is in a grieving process.  I made the mistake of trying to understand, when actually I could not.  And I know I made it worse.

But for me, when I am sad, or depressed.  I try not to leave God out of the equation.  And I try, not to stay in a place of depression, when I am there.  I have gone through things through life, that sometimes, I can see, no one has gone through.  No one, I know any way.  So, I don’t want to compare myself to them.  And frankly, they should not compare themselves to me as well, because well we all have different journeys, or roads we take in this life.

But, because I have learned to cope.  I have learned to always go to God.  He fills that void in my heart, my soul, in my loss, because He understands.  I know who He is….. As I said, He is love.  But as Christ, my savior.  He understands sorrow, pain, hurt, and He understands what unconditional love, can do, to a broken heart.  He gives us that love.

HE HEALETH THE BROKEN IN HEART, AND BINDETH UP THEIR WOUNDS.  Psalm 147:3  King James.  

He gives us that compassion, when we are hurting, because He knows what it feels like to suffer, and hurt.  He was beaten for us, and by His stripes we are healed.  Read Isaiah 53:5 King James. That means physically, and spiritually, which can affect depression.  We can by Christ be healed from depression.

Remember when Christ, learned of Lazarus, and his death?  He cried.  He wept.  He loved his friend, but He used his power, in love, to bring him back to life.

P1120514.jpgNow to me, that is very symbolic, because love is a great power.  He loved his friend so much, that he called him back to life.

Sometimes, when we make decisions about people, we don’t reject them, because we don’t want them in our lives.  But a true friend is happy for their friend.  When they are blessed.  But for me, it is because maybe we see, we bring out something in them, that blocks their blessings.  For that friend.  And I would never want to do that.  To anyone.  To me…. Thats love.  You want them to have a happy life.  But you can still grieve for them.  Because you miss them.

When I am sad, I go through the sorrow, the sadness, and I acknowledge it, but if there is something, that I need to bring to the Lord, in my own capacity, I ask Him, to show me what it is, so I can repent, so I can be right with Him.  Sin will bring sorrow.  It just will.  Our spirits, just know within, we are not right with God, and to be separated from God, because of sin, will just do that.  We need to repent to get right with God.  He is holy, He calls us to be holy.  Sin, takes your holiness.  So yes, don’t wait repent.

WHY ART THOU CAST DOWN, O MY SOUL?  AND WHY ART THOU DISQUIETED IN ME?  HOPE THOU IN GOD:  FOR I SHALL YET PRAISE HIM FOR THE HELP OF HIS COUNTENEANCE?   PSALMS 42:5  King James.  

Therein, the joy returns to me, because He cleans my soul.  I cannot be depressed, or sad, when I am praising Him, thanking Him, trying to do good for others.  Because the joy of the Lord is my strength.  In His presence, there is fullness of joy.

THOU WILT SHEW ME THE PATH OF LIFE:  IN THY PRESENCE IS FULNESS OF JOY; AT THY RIGHT HAND THERE ARE PLEASURES FOR EVERMORE.  PSALMS 16:11 KING JAMES. 

It is very sad, that so many go down a dark road, and cannot find their way back to God.  Because if they did, their joy would return to them as well.  I know this.  I know, if I had stayed on the road I was on, before knowing my Lord, and had a pity party, all the guests would leave, but pain and sorrow, would stay, and I would not find happiness or joy.

THE SORROWS OF HELL COMPASSED ME ABOUT:  THE SNARES OF DEATH PREVENTED ME.  Psalms 18:5.  King James.

I make myself, get out of these moments of sorrow, sadness, because to be honest, God is not there.  And I want to be where God is.  So I hold onto His hand, at all times.  And will not let go.  Even on this earth….  Does that make sense?

So, I search the King James scriptures, and I try to find the answer to what God says about these matters.

I AM AFRAID OF ALL MY SORROWS, I KNOW THAT THOU WILT NOT HOLD ME INNOCENT.  JOB 9:28.  King James.  

IMG_0015.JPGI just know, in the reality of life, happiness, and depression, can come and go.  We cannot be in a euphoric sense of happiness, because well if we did, we would just take it for granted.  We would take others for granted.  And worse, we would take God for granted.

He does not reject us, when we have a broken or a contrite spirit.  But it is up to us to make the choice to seek Him.

THE LORD IS NIGH UNTO THEM ARE OF A BROKEN HEART; AND SAVETH SUCH AS BE OF A CONTRITE SPIRIT.  PSALMS 34:18  King James.  

But if we just stay in a place of sorrow, or depression, then we are allowing the enemy to steal from us, that joy.  And I reject, and refuse to give the enemy any more of my joy.  He took a lot of it, when I was young.  See, when I was young, I feel like the devil stole a lot from me.  So, no, I stay close to God.

This is how I deal with happiness, and depression.  No, ifs, buts or maybes.  See, the way of the Lord, who is the way, the truth, and life, John 14:6.  Makes me realize this.

IMG_0003.JPGNot sure, why I am writing this today, or for whoever.  Though I was sad, this morning, I have a pretty good outlook about things, this afternoon, because we cannot always control people, but we can control, our choices.  I got out of that funky mood.  We can control how we deal with situations.  By giving it all to God. Choices to choose God, just brings results.  I know that.

But all I know, in life, we must learn how to cope, but leaving God out of it, will bring darkness.  It will bring sorrow.  Sin does that.  Repenting, clearing the slate, brings God, it will bring joy.   Being careful in life, to not grieve the Holy Spirit, allows for you to have the joy, much longer.

BEHOLD, THIS IS THE JOY OF HIS WAY, AND OUT OF THE EARTH SHALL OTHERS GROW. JOB 8:19  King James.  

Blessings, in Christ,

HOW TO PRAY WHEN OBSTACLES GET IN THE WAY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0046.jpegFirst of all, lets just get this clear!

Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6, King James.  And when we need to find our way, we need to find truth, to have life.  Life abundantly, in Christ.  So you have to ask yourself.  Have you found Christ?

pa310033-e1320254594854.jpgSo, don’t try to bypass Christ in this, don’t try to find solutions, that eliminate Him.  Because what you will find is that you may be searching or looking for solutions, that do not include Him, and that could be your downfall.

Oh you know what I am talking about, because some of you dabble, in a little of this, or a little of that, and what you are doing is bringing spiritual curses.  (horoscopes, psychics, and worse)

Things that will if anything create more of an obstacle.  Because God controls it all…  If anything, you will get God very angry.  Don’t do that.

There are no loop holes, to God or with God.  Got that?  There are not!  His Ways, are of excellence.  His ways, are according to His truth.  According to His righteousness, and His Kingdom.  They are through Christ.  Even in prayer…IMG_0346.jpg

Don’t think just because God is silent, He does not see.  He does.  And that should put the fear in all of us!

But are you doing your part?  Are you seeking His Kingdom, and His righteousness?  Are you seeking to please Him.  Not people.  But Him?

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.  MATTHEW 6:33 KING JAMES.  

Are you in Holy word? King James word, because you know if you are trying to get a break through, or by step obstacles, you cannot with a rubber sword.

But you have to be in a place, where you can ask.  Have you repented to God, for even thoughts, or sins?  Daily?  Keep your spiritual house clean.  On a daily basis, for the anointing to flow to you.

Sometimes, when obstacles, occur, or happen it can happen for two reasons:

1. God has placed the obstacles there. 

2. The enemy, may be interfering.   So, don’t give the enemy a legal right to interfere.  For YOU are allowing him to place obstacles in your way.

I am going to use Samson, from the Bible, as an example.  Remember, he was gifted, by God, and he had much wisdom, and was able to fool many people?  Confound them?  He had the ability, as a gift, even in physical strength, to do great things, because he loved the Lord.  But sin, did get in the way, and he ended up even losing his physical vision, because he fell in love, with Delilah, and she betrayed him.  He foolishly trusted her.  Do you trust, someone, and sin is there?

Folks, even here, can we not see, how we can lose our gifts and callings, when we fall for sin?  It hurt him so much, that he lost his physical eyesight, they took it from him.

But when he prayed to God, to have strength, again.  He was restored.  He was blind.  But yet, he knew where to push, and he toppled the building, the temple, they were all in, and they were destroyed.

See, that obstacle, could have been him losing his eye sight.  But he got right with God, and found his strength again.

AND SAMSON SAID, LET ME DIE WITH THE PHILISTINES.  AND HE BOWED HIMSELF WITH ALL HIS MIGHT; AND THE HOUSE FELL UPON THE LORDS, AND UPON ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WERE THEREIN.  SO THE DEAD WHICH HE SLEW AT HIS DEATH WERE MORE THAN THEY WHICH HE SLEW IN HIS LIFE.  JUDGES 16:30 King James. 

We can find our strength again.  Physically and spiritually.  No matter what has happened, no matter, how much we have fallen, or hurt ourselves, or been hurt by others, or been in sin, we can get right with God.  We can be restored.  On earth and in heaven.

I feel that for me as well.  I know, I have made mistakes in judgment with people, with trust issues, with poor choices.  I have been myself, sometimes, my own worse enemy.  But even though, I was blind spiritually, I can now see.

We have to understand there are things in the spiritual realm we may not be able to see.  Don’t go to the blind, for advice.  But God can show you.

LET THEM ALONE:  THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND.  AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH.  MATTHEW 156:14  KJV

Because I trust God.  I try and obey God.  And what I see, has taught me, that with God, all things are possible.  No matter what the obstacle is.  God can make anything happen, and I think we can get discouraged.  I know I have in some ways.  But yet, I won’t give up.  Even if the obstacle is so big.  Remember Christ told us to speak to our mountains, and they would go away.

JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, IF YE HAVE FAITH, AND DOUBT NOT, YE SHALL NOT ONLY DO THIS WHICH IS DONE TO THE FIG TREE, BUT ALSO IF YE SHALL SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN, BE THOU REMOVED, AND BE THOU CAST INTO THE SEA; IT SHALL BE DONE.  MATTHEW 21:21  KING JAMES.  img_2533

So, I am no longer, the blind, lead by the blind….

I have faith, and trust in God.

Let me explain.  See, in the spirit realm, we do not always see, what forces are attacking us, but if we know God, we can have His protection.  Because He sees everything.  He allows what He will…..

To be right with Him, though will bring results.

So, if you are looking at something, that you may desire, but you are seeing, obstacles, have you asked God why?  Have you repented?  We are called to wait on Him.  What does His King James word say about such matters?

WAIT ON THE LORD, AND KEEP HIS WAY, AND HE SHALL EXALT THEE TO INHERIT THE LAND:  WHEN THE WICKED ARE CUT OFF, THOU SHALT SEE IT.  PSALMS 37:34  King James.

Have you ever seen him cut the wicked away from you?  I have….

So I recommend, continuing in prayer.

But, if you are not seeing any results.  Pray this way, His way, to God.

Thank God, for the obstacle.  See, His timing makes the difference, He may have put the obstacle there for you, to avoid a downfall.  He may have something better.  Or whatever.  Trust Him.  In the timing.  Look at the obstacle differently.  Don’t look at it as something that hurts you.  Look at it, in a way, that tells God you trust Him for the obstacle.

But as you do, thank God.  Thank God in prayer for the obstacle.

But, remember what Christ taught us!  He gave us the authority, to bind or loose things in heaven and in earth.

Tell God, that if the obstacle is His doing, then you will wait.  Trusting Him. But, if the obstacle, does not come from God, but from the enemy, plead the blood of Jesus, and bind that obstacle from interfering.  REBUKE IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS!  Loose, or release, in prayer to God, for a way, from the obstacle, because He is the way, the truth and the life.  Ask God to remove the obstacle.

AND I WILL GIVE UNTO THEE THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN:  AND WHATSOEVER THOU SHALT BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN:  AND WHATSOEVER THOU SHALT LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 16:19  KJV.IMG_0004

And in any event, thank God.  He will show you, just be patient.  Walk in love, forgive, do your part, in just every day things.  Seek His Holy King James word, read it daily.  Keep your spirit right before Him, with praise. Praise to God, also makes such a difference.

THANKS BE UNTO GOD FOR HIS UNSPEAKABLE GIFT.  II CORINTHIANS 9:15  King James.

Does that help?  I hope so.

Prayer my friends, make the difference.  Learn to use it, and ask God to give you witty ways….

Again, He is the way, the truth, and the life….He can remove those obstacles.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez
