WHY DO WOMEN HATE? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2752.jpg

Why do women hate?  Why do they hate men?  Why do they hate other women?  Why?

Recently, with the controversy about Kavanaugh, I saw and still see so much hate from women.

I see women, make one man, the poster boy for hate.  An object of hate.

I saw them saying things like “believe the victim”.  And you know, I do believe the victim.

But I don’t believe in making anybody an object of hate. In being an accuser.  Or lying.

Or pouring my hurt into someone else, by destroying their character or reputation.  We saw that.  

I see women knocking other women, yet complaining if they are attacked in the same way.  I see women, being very jealous, catty, never seeing the good in other women.  

I saw that when I worked in the business world.  Men were nice, but women, were very competitive mean, and hard to get a long with.  

I have seen that as well from just women in ministry, in the church, and maybe thats why I only consider a couple of women friends, because they don’t play that game.  Or at least not displaying it.  

I grew up, seeing hate.  From my own mama.  I could not understand it.  But I kind of do understand it now.  And God bless my mama, but she was also a victim.   The sad thing is she never did overcome it.  And I vowed to not be that way.  To me that is a curse.  I don’t want curses in my life.  

So I have sought the Lord in all matters including that.  I am not a victim, but I am victorious in Christ, and I will share more later in this.  About that. 

See, growing up, I was also a victim, of different things, and I won’t go into details.  So I could have hated.  But sometimes I see, just how dumb I was.  How trusting I was.  How naive I was.  How desperate I was.  I don’t like saying that, but I did not have any outlets.  

Since, my mother was a hater, yet loved me, she tried to control me.  I did not do well with that.  I rebelled. And instead of finding my way, I made myself vulnerable to wolves.  Men.  Evil men.  Or men, boys, who could not even figure things out for themselves.

Yes, I could have hated men.  I could have even hated my mother. But I did not.   Life has not been easy for me, in many ways.  Even with having successes.  But I don’t hate.  I don’t even hate myself.  And I can easily say here, many times, I was my worse enemy.  But I don’t hate myself.  

I could probably write a book about this, and why women hate.  But I have also learned, people are not running to go and buy my books.  That I have poured my heart into.  Already….And thats o.k.  I have accepted my situation.  If God changes that, well thats different.  

But I have known some women in the literary world.  And they won’t lift one finger to help me.  Or even in ministry.  Even women, that say I minister to them, they won’t even share my posts.  And some called me friend.  Yeah right.  Sorry if I sound bitter, but its true, women have not been my friend, in Christ, or a help.

And my motivation has changed sometime ago.  I am not writing for money.  I am not writing for my glory.  I am writing for the glory of God, and you cannot put a price on that.  

Yet I see how valuable any wisdom is.  And if I can impart something even here, in a small blog post, for a woman, then maybe she can be set free.  To be a wise woman.  Especially a young woman, looking to find her way.  

Let me tell you when my life really changed.  When I stopped and I saw, that yes I believed in God.  But when I decided to do things His way, in holiness, and not walk the fence between the world and God, I found my way.  By repentance.  By seeking Holy King James word.  By prayer.  By seeing the traps the devil tried to put in front of me, with temptation.  Even from other men, after I was married.  And I saw, I had to run from sin.

Sin will destroy you, blind you.  Even in the name of love.  Thats why I guess some women hate men, because perhaps a man they loved, burned them.  Burned them bad.  And they loved that man.  

But what I have learned, is that if a man truly loves you.  He will honor you.  He will wait till marriage.  Women, don’t understand that all is not fair in love and war.  If you give yourself to a man, he will take what he wants.  

Then, what women think and don’t know, they have given the most important part of themselves to the man, and even if he loves you, he looks at you differently, you are no longer a challenge.  He will even think about you doing what you did with him, with other men.  What a turn off.  He defeated you, he disarmed you by taking your sexuality.  He may even begin to hate you.  

I learned that from different men.  

But holiness, in Christ, is your greatest weapon, and will not cause you to hate.  For, what I learned from God, is to honor myself, and to repent of sin.  I learned, to submit to God.  I learned that a good woman, does not hate.  She does not blame others.  For her own mistakes.  She picks herself up, takes a bath, and cleanses herself by repenting seeking God, and loving Gods way.

Which is holy.

Long story short, I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years.  We waited till after marriage. To consume our marriage.  We did not take what we were not supposed to.   We honored God in this.  I told my husband before we got married, I wanted to do things Gods way.  He listened, he agreed.  I know that I know that is my “secret” to true love, and living happily ever after. 

I watched myself, did not fall into traps, and well, we have a fruitful marriage in Christ.  I don’t blame my past on anybody, and I don’t hate anybody even now.

Hate is ugly.  I don’t hate women.   And yes there are always more lovelier, more successful then me, even in the body of Christ, but thats o.k.  I take what God has taught me, I try to share it and I try to share it in love.

Some can take it or leave it.  I don’t really care.  To get angry or hateful, or mean about it. Just hurts yourself.  And I am not into afflicting myself. Or nobody else.  For that matter. It will stop the plans God has for you.  

I just learned, probably the hard way.  Love never fails.  And you don’t want that poison of hate in your soul.  

Be careful with these movements, that want to make men equals.  

Don’t forget God did create Adam before Eve.  Don’t forget, that she was the one that caused Adam to sin, by listening to the devil.  Don’t forget, that you don’t listen to the devil.  Listen to what God says.  Obey Him, obey God, I tell you, it will steer your life in the right direction. 

Hope this helps some body.  

Blessings, in Christ,

CHANGE YOUR DISPOSITION BY CHANGING YOUR POSITION CLOSER TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0348.jpg

CHANGE YOUR DISPOSITION BY CHANGING YOUR POSITION CLOSER TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

Yesterday, I had a terrible day.  I was ticked off.  I was angry.  Sometimes, when I see unrighteousness, I do get angry.  Yesterday was one of those days, because I see so much deception, in the body of Christ, in our nation, and some of these folks, get me angry.

I was in battle.

And to make a long story short, I was out of focus.  And well something happened, that kind of snapped me out of it, but it was not pleasant.

Anyway, I had a chat with my hubby this morning, and I thank God for who he is, because he can sometimes, bring insight to me, inspiration, and minister to me.  I received it.  

Because he reminded me, how you have to sometimes, look at your disposition.  Look at the fruit of who you are, what you are doing, and when the darts start flying, don’t be a dummy, and just stay there, and take the hits.  Move closer to God.  Change your disposition, by changing your position, closer to God.

See, as a Christian, sure we may say we believe in God, but we have to look at our own fruit.  I had some “stinking thinking” yesterday.  It showed.

I see it now.  But sometimes, in the heat of a spiritual battle, we can get stubborn.  We can think we can handle it, we can even dish it out.  And I also saw this story on social media,  author unknown, that reminded me, we cannot:

It was about a snake.  The snake, walked into a carpenters studio, and brushed against a saw.  It grazed it, and it made the snake angry.  Well the snake said, I will show you who I am, and I will use my powers, and strangle you.  So, it wrapped itself around the saw, and the saw, not moving, the snake thought, it overpowered it, and tightened its grip around the saw harder, but because of who it was, with sharp blades, it killed the snake.  

The moral of that story is:  The snake had no right to assume, it could take on a fight with something, that had power, on its own, without even doing anything.  

See, even with me, I should have prayed more.  But I trusted my ability, I got a little overconfident.  I see it.    

See, another analogy, is that we can get so caught up in something, like I was as well, that we lose our focus.  We can be deceived by something, and well the fruit will not reflect that of Christ.  Even though, my cause was great, I was in a battle, with a saw, so to speak, and I was not equipped to handle it.  There was a chink in my armor of God.  Anger, got in the way.  

We can do that.  And I am not a snake.  I don’t take on attributes of being sneaky, mean spirited, or hitting below the belt, like some folks do.  Where one moment, they apologize, but the next minute they go for the jugular.  They don’t fight fair.  You see the fruit.  You see, the pride.  You see the denial, or excuse making, instead of being accountable.  You see, the lies, and false witnesses, and you want to hit back.  But sometimes, its not your job to hit at all.  Lesson learned. 

But I am called to be wise as the snake, but harmless as a dove.

BEHOLD I SEND YOU FORTH AS SHEEP IN THE MIDST OF WOLVES:  BE YE THEREFORE WISE AS SERPENTS, AND HARMLESS AS DOVES.  Matthew 10:16.  Holy King James Bible.  

But isn’t that what the devil wants to do to us?  Deceive us, corrupt us, mislead us, and so we can lose what our focus is, or who we are in Christ?  His goal, is to make us fall, and any of us will fall without Christ holding us up.  When we puff ourselves up, get full of ourselves, with pride, over estimating, our own ability, we can fall.

See, if we also just look at the devil, look at what he does, take our eyes off of Christ, we are putting the devil in a position of adoration, because we think the devil has power.  We can even take on attributes of the enemy, because we are not watching Christ, but the enemy.

We do not, if we submit to God first.  Then we can resist, the enemy, and he will flee.  Because we have changed our disposition, by changing our position closer to God.  

I do so, even now by publicly repenting to God, and asking for wisdom and guidance in these matters.  Because I don’t want to have poor judgment.  

So, in order, for me, as an example, I just see, I have to change my disposition.  I have to move out of the way of the enemy.  Get closer to God, and let those fiery darts miss me.  Practice the fruit of the spirit, and obey God.  

Sometimes, it takes something to move us, but if we are smart, if we see, if we only did it the way of the Lord, well we could miss those darts.  Put on the armor of God.  

Yes, I changed my disposition, by changing my position, and getting closer to God.  

I hope this blesses you.  You know, I always pray, to try to help you get closer to God.

Have a good one.   All glory to God, He holds me up, He heals me, and puts salve on my wounds.  He did that for me today.  With the help of my dear loving husband.  Thank you Father.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He got caught up in an agenda.

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

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

MATTHEW 7:20  KING JAMES

WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In Christ’s love, Elena Ramirez 

MY THANKSGIVING THOUGHTS FOR 2017 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

My Thanksgiving Thoughts for 2017

by Christian Author Elena Ramirez

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some do not have these blessings, and its sad.  

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

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

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

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

Happy Thanksgiving…With much love, in Christ, 

Much love, Elena Ramirez

FREEDOM OF SPEECH ~ DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2523.jpgFREEDOM OF SPEECH DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Elena Ramirez

I am grateful to God for our freedoms, here, in the United States.  Many are using that right, even now with our new President.  Donald J. Trump. To protest, and express how they feel.  But they cross a line, when they riot.  

I do not agree with many of these views.  Because they are not my core values, but I do respect freedom of speech.  But what I see, is many hide behind their computer, or even publicly say, and do things with freedom of speech that makes me cringe.  They abuse it. 

So lately, I don’t know, I have been seeing a lot of abuse. By many. And I guess it even concerns me, when I see a brother or a sister, in Christ abuse it.

People, I love.

Look, God gives us each a conscience. But maybe you will just consider what I am about to say as love. Maybe a guideline to help you.

But let me ask you a few questions…
Is what your sharing, is it truth?
Is it a lie?
Is it love?
Or is it hate?
Is it mean spirited?
Is it something, that will bring understanding?
Is it something, that is not a bad example for others to learn from? Hmmm.
Is it something that respects?
Is it something that disrespects?
Does it bring unity to us as Americans, and yes even people of other races, creeds, religions etc.

Or does it set out to cause division?

Are you promoting life? Or are you promoting something that hurts life? And takes it away…..

Is your agenda, Gods agenda?

All of these things are just things we can miss. I know, I probably do. And for that I repent to God. We need to find the balance. I am not your conscience. You are. I know, myself, I have erred….

But I also know…..

If God is your savior, you know, He knows your thoughts…..

But there are things, I just shake my head at, because its as if the person, is not really thinking…..

For, when I see a brother or a sister, playing with someones emotions. And they put out something, that may make ME sympathize with them, and even bring out outrage, or anger, because they were hurt, or insulted, and then THEY say;

“Hey I was just playing with you” I was pulling your leg.

I look at that as very immature.

Its a spirit, you are releasing that is a lie, and then you call it a joke. It harms your spirit, because you are practicing lying….

You have to look at the fruit of it, and what it gives, and what it does for you. And yes even others.

I don’t trust lies, or liars, and when I see someone who I trusted use that kind of illustration, to make me think different. Or to play with my emotions. I do, no longer, trust the integrity of that person.

Its like the analogy of the little boy, who cried wolf. Making people believe him, but when they saw the lie, they stopped believing him. But the sad thing happened, the wolf really did appear. No one believed him, when he truly spoke the truth….

Look, I want to be very general about this. But lets remember.

Freedom of speech is a gift. Its something we need to honor, and protect. It should not be used, to incite, evil, or violence, or anything that goes against what Christ taught us in love. The report, should bring light, not darkness, to ourselves or others.

Yes, and truth does not always means it won’t hurt. It will…

But, use love if your going to bring truth to it. Look, I am a warrior, but even God teaches warriors to be diplomatic.

I take to God what my KJV Says, and I don’t want to just pick and choose, for my purposes.

Just food for thought, this morning. Freedom of speech…do you use it, or abuse it?

FINALLY BRETHREN, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE HONEST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE THINK ON THESE THINGS…..THESE THINGS WHICH YE HAVE BOTH LEARNED AND RECEIVED, AND HEARD, AND SEEN IN ME DO: AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BE WITH YOU. PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9. KJV.

I just realize if we are going to use our voices, we really need to stop, and think, and be responsible.  

Accountable to God and others.  In love… I never want to abuse this gift.  

Blessings in Christ, Elena Ramirez 

MORE THOUGHTS THAT SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED… By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_784ONCE SAVED NOT ALWAYS SAVED….BY ELENA RAMIREZ

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK. EXODUS 32:33. KJV

WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS TURNETH FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMITETH INIQUITY, HE SHALL EVEN DIE THEREBY. EZEKIEL 33:18 KJV

The logic of these two above scriptures, tells me, whoever sins, without repentance, that God will blot someone out of the Lambs book of life.

The second verse says, very specifically, a person who has received salvation, but turns from the righteousness of Christ, and sins, he will die, without, salvation.

The thought behind that is, with Christ, we will have life eternally. But if someone “turns” from the righteousness, as it states here, and sins, they will die. They will lose their salvation. They will not have life eternally with Christ. This is why repentance is so important.

Now this last verse, I share comes from Revelation 22:18-19, and yes, it talks about those who change the KJV word. But it impresses on me very clearly, those who do change it, add to it, will lose their part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city. Thereby losing their salvation. Changing it, in any shape or form, is taking the words away from the prophecy…..

FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK, IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE THIS BOOK: AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. REVELATION 22:18-19. KJV

Salvation is a contract. Christ did His part, God did His part. But we have our part. If we break the contract, it is our fault. Not Gods, not Christ but ours. We have broken the covenant, of life eternal with Christ. We have broken the contract of salvation, if we sin, without repenting. We will lose our salvation. We will make that contract, null and void.

Salvation is not saved once, and always saved, if someone breaks the covenant. By unrepented sin. REPENT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE, IS WHAT I RECOMMEND TO ANYONE WHO HAS SINNED. FOR WE KNOW NOT WHEN WE WILL LEAVE THIS EARTH. I WOULD GO SO FAR TO SAY, REPENT DAILY. FOR THE SINS, OF EVEN OUR THOUGHTS…..

WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERD; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT. EZEKIEL 33:13. KJV.

And I will just say this lastly. The devil himself, lost salvation. He was in the Kingdom of God, he was an angel. And he was jealous of God. God kicked him out of heaven because of it. He lost it, and so he would want someone to lose it as well. The devil, would want all of us to think Salvation is sound, and to sin, without repenting. And that is my whole point, that repentance is needed to secure it.

WHY I WOULD VOTE AS A CHRISTIAN FOR RICK SANTORUM


I am a Christian.  An American Hispanic woman.  Born and raised in the United States.  A Conservative.  I grew up as a Democrat, but now I am a Republican.

I love this nation.  I love, our freedoms, even more so, because as a Christian, we have rights to serve God, with freedom.  Not all countries have this right.  There is a lot of persecution, for Christians around the world.

But, what I do sense, lately, is that in our society, and even here in the United States, Christianity, is not being defended.  Our freedoms, are challenged.  To pray, in public, to even acknowledge God, in the school systems, etc.  This is being denied.  This is reality.  It is mocked, and many, do not value, the truth of Gods word.  I believe, our country needs, an infusion, of God.  To get us back on track.  Because the truth of the matter, is our country, was founded, by our forefathers, to have religious freedom.

They say, you cannot mix, religion, and politics.  And normally, I do not say anything about peoples political preferences.  Nor will I, probably, after this.  Because I respect peoples rights, to vote for who they want to vote for.  I am not bashing anyone.  Thats not who I am as a Christian.  I want to walk in love, with all people.  As Christ taught us.

But I do disagree with the thought, to a degree, that you cannot mix politics and religion.

Why? Because I see, the moral decay.  I see, the spirit, in the United States, that right now, needs truth.  Because a person, will lead, by their convictions.  By the root, of who they are,  Mr. Santorum, is a Christian.  But, I believe, he would take to heart, that our nation, is based, on the foundation, that in the United States, we ALL have the right, to our religious freedoms.

Do I know, a lot about politics?  No.  I do not.  But I know a lot about Gods word.  I know, that a man, or a woman, is led by the spirit, in which it serves.  Either good or evil.  When I look for any characteristic in any one, I look at their track record.  I look at what they believe, and who they believe in.  I look, at what they stand for.

Rick Santorum, a former United States senator, is someone, who defends life.  And believes, in family values.  His stance, as a senator, who has written, legislature, to protect, unborn babies, probably will win my vote, just for that.  (Against Partial Birth Abortion) He is also someone, who is truly a friend to Israel, and will help and protect this nation.  God loves Israel, our Bible is established, with the knowledge of Israel.  And God will bless those, who bless Israel.  (The Syria Accountability Act)  Documented from Rick Santorum’s official web page.  http://www.ricksantorum.com/why-rick

So these are just some things, I see, that Rick Santorum, believes and stands for, as a Christian, and as someone who could effectively lead this nation.  And I pray, the future president of the United States.

I just know, our nation, needs someone, who puts God first.  In their personal life, and then to guide this nation, to have wisdom.  To lead, effectively.

Someone, who will seek counsel from God.  To guide this nation.  Someone, who understands, the power of prayer.  Someone, who defends those who cannot defend themselves.  Helpless babies.  Someone who believes, in the sanctity of marriage.  Someone, who has strong family values.  I believe I see that, immediately with Mr. Rick Santorum.

The word of God says, in Proverbs 14:34, Righteousness, exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.  

Right now, I just see, there are so many hurting people.  People who need jobs.  People, who need help, but not a handout, but a hand to lift them up.  To, help themselves.  We need, someone, who will bring our jobs back to this country.  Someone, whose values, demands respect.  Yes, I would vote for Rick Santorum, just on these things I know about him.  And I pray, that our country, would go back to the values, it was established upon.  

I pray God bless America, but more then anything, I pray, America blesses God.  We need to get back to the values, that blesses God.  Not only for our nation, but for our personal lives.  For our Salvation.  Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6

I pray, Mr.  Santorum will become our new President, just by these values.  He expresses.  And His track record.  

By the will of God, it will be, if it is meant to be.  You see, God has a plan.  I just encourage you, to vote, for truth.  For liberty, for justice for all.  Even for unborn babies, who want to live……Its not a choice, its a Baby.  

And I want a president, who does understand this.  Because if He honors life, He will honor God.  And if he honors God, He will honor this great nation.  This great country, the land of the free.  The United States.       

Just My Thoughts, with love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope….

Father, I pray for America, I pray, you bring the truth to this nation.  I pray, Rick Santorum would bless you, and America.  And if it be your will, he will become our next President of the United States.  And Lord, whoever it may be, may they lead, with you on their heart.  So America can get back on track.  Help America, vote with the thought, for the helpless, the unborn babies, and for Israel, on their hearts as well.  In Jesus name.  Amen
