Wow, not an easy, feel good, soft and fuzzy title. But I write them as the Lord gives them to me.
So why is the Lord using me, to write about something so strong? That one could take offense to it. Or it could open someones eyes. Just the word “whore”, is vulgar, if you think about it.
But it is biblical to talk about. And this applies to men and women. And even in other situations, besides adultery. So here goes…
I WILL DO THESE THINGS UNTO THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST GONE A WHORING AFTER THE HEATHEN AND BECAUSE THOU ART POLLUTED WITH THEIR IDOLS. EZEKIEL 23:30 KING JAMES.
LEST THOU MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND, AND THEY GO A WHORING AFTER THEIR GODS, AND DO SACRIFICE UNTO THEIR GODS, AND ONE CALL THEE, AND THOU EAT OF HIS SACRIFICE. EXODUS 34:15. KING JAMES.
AND THE SOUL THAT TURNETH AFTER SUCH AS HAVE FAMILIAR SPIRITS, AND AFTER WIZARDS, TO GO A WHORING AFTER THEM, I WILL EVEN SET MY FACE AGAINST THAT SOUL, AND WILL CUT HIM OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE. LEVITICUS 20:6. KING JAMES
So, one has to recognize it is a spirit. And before it even manifests itself though, it can be taken to the cross, in repentance. Before anything happens. And I guess, thats what I want to warn you about. I want you to recognize it, before, so you can avoid it. So you can rebuke the whoring, adulterous spirit. But only in the name of Jesus, can you find the power to do that.
I don’t want to judge anybody. I have taken my own sins, to the cross, and prayed for forgiveness. And even now, when I think about some of my own stupid sins, I still repent.
But, I do feel an obligation to write this, because there is a whorish, adulterous spirit, that can even come on the best, intending Christians. Let alone, someone, who is naive, and does not know Gods truth.
Sin, its meant to kill, steal, destroy. Its meant to stop your blessings. Its meant to steal the promises from God from you.
Because if one sins, and does not repent, the enemy, has a “legal” right to harass you. To steal your salvation. To deceive you.
I see messages, sometimes, that state grace, will make a way, when there is sin. But they do not add, that inbetween, sin, and grace, there has to be repentance. I don’t see it taught. Maybe it is.
Anyway, we live in a very adulterous world. Women, and men, showing their bodies, with no modesty, and what does this teach women, and men? What does it teach our young girls? Where is the outcry to say, cover yourselves up….don’t give it all away. Leave the mystery. But our society does not teach these things. Just turn your television on, and you see it.
Respect yourself. Because if you don’t the devil certainly will not.
And seldom, heard, do I hear it from the body of Christ, and Christian leaders.
Temptation comes….and when you most try to avoid it. It will try anyway. But God says if we are obedient to him, he will not allow a temptation.
THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN; BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE: BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT. I Corinthians 10:13 King James only.
Remember Joseph, he ran, when the Pharoahs wife tried to seduce him.
We should run from sin. We should teach our daughters and sons, the benefits of staying away from sin. Including sexually transmitted diseases.
Now, just a clue here, but because we all want to be beautiful, smart, and blessed. But what do we use our beauty for? Is it to attract a mate? Is it to show you are better then someone?
Everything our society seems to point out is the beauty someone has? But in doing so, they are losing something. Its innocence. Its modesty, its self-respect.
Sometimes when I watch television programs where hollywood, or the music community has award shows. I look at the womens clothing, and I think, golly, girl, put some clothes on. You can catch a cold. To say the least…..
You know what it brings, but a whorish, adulterous spirit. That leads to sin.
People do not talk about sin hardly any more. Maybe because we all do sin, according to scripture. We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.
But, when you repent, and give your heart to God, you should make sure, you stay away from sin. So you have to understand the spirits…whether of God, or the devil.
Because you want your robes of righteousness, clean, when you stand before God.
That is your responsibility too. We do not have an excuse to sin, when we accept Christ. We don’t.
I just feel like I am talking to someone, who needs to see this. You are so tempted right now. You want to indulge in a whorish, adulterous spirit, and release yourself to someone. Someone, who may even say they love you. But if they loved you, they would marry you. They would make it right before God. By honoring you. It would not be adulterous.
Maybe you have an adulterous sin, just repent. Ask God to cleanse you of your sins. Turn from whoring ways. But see it, before it is too late.
If you do not honor yourself, no one else will. You have to see that.
But what you don’t see, is that the devil, is trying to take your blessings, your future, your hopes, even your health away.
Repent for the thought, the desire, the longing, that holds you captive and just turn back to God.
Turn back, don’t go down that road. It leads straight to hell. So rebuke that whorish adulterous spirit. Rebuke it, and get right with God. Because it leads to other sins as well.
Rebuke it, in Jesus name. So your own true love can be revealed to God, and others.
KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATORS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND. NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD. I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 KING JAMES.
Blessings, and love, in Christ,
WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION TO PRAY?
Why do you pray? To ask God for something? Wouldn’t it be more practical, more respectful, to pray to God for who He is? More loving? Instead of what He can give? I ask myself that as well.
You see, I want answers to prayer. But, I also want answers for you. We are learning. We have to learn who God is, to understand Him. His ways are excellence. I just think we have to know, He deserves glory, and honor, and praise. True worship. Not this lip service.
Because He knows our hearts. Our minds, from even afar. And one cannot fool God. One cannot play church, or play religious, or pray they are this, or that, because God sees.
So, if you could see in the spirit, you could see between good and evil. But you would choose to know good. To know God. I sometimes, think about the source of how it all began, from Genesis. My King James bible. That is not corrupted. But is holy and anointed. Stored in heaven and earth for answers. His way. Not mans, corrupted versions.
God created Adam and Eve. He had a plan for them. But they were so naive. They listened to the devil. Instead of going to God, to confirm what He told them. Don’t eat from the tree of good and evil. God never intended for us to know evil.
Yet we are inundated with it, in so many ways, but we still have the choice to know God, to communicate with Him, to not listen to the devil, and to obey what God says. Don’t know sin, in our lives. Don’t disobey God in this, because we reap the consequences of it.
Seeking God, for what He can give us, is just insulting. Or just praying when we have to. For a need etc. If we do not develop our relationship with Him. And that begins by recognizing the commandments. The law. The sovereignty of who He is. His power! My goodness, He is the creator of heaven and earth! There is none like Him. No comparison.
So we are grateful for grace. Yes, grace is extended, but you cannot have grace, without seeing what God expects. You cannot expect grace if you do not do your part by seeing with your true heart.
And when you do, then you see what Christ did on that cross. It was not pretty. It was not easy. He suffered for our sins, for us, to have a way out. He is that way, the truth, and life. John 14:6 paraphrasing King James.
When you see what He did on that cross, love truly comes in your heart. You see He is the great shepherd. The protecter. The healer, the deliverer. You don’t just go to Him, for what He can give you. You go to Him because there is none like Him. There is no other source of love as great.
And so to insult Him, yes I say it is an insult, when we don’t develop knowing who He is, and you constantly ask Him for things, or expect Him to answer our prayers, without repenting, we are not seeing who He really is.
Friends, all I know, is this is important in our relationship with Him, and with anybody. For that matter. Do you only go to your friends, to see what they can give you? No, and if you do, how selfish that is. They see through it. They like God, may not say anything, but they see through it. God is silent, but there will be a day, we will hear, very clearly what He expected, especially when we stand before Him.
Yet, we are given this chance now, to make it right. To develop our relationship with Him, now. To ensure our salvation. To see what He did on the cross. To repent. To make Him Lord and savior. With our King James bibles, with prayer, that is serious, about talking to Him, and seeking Him for who He is. Not what He can give us.
Why do you think I serve Him? Because there is no one like Him. He pulled me out of a pit. Many do not know my story. My full testimony. You may know parts. But you don’t know, what I have suffered, or gone through. And I may never say all of why. Because as much as I am an open book, there is much, I cannot even put into words. But He loved me. He showed me. He guides me, and speaks to me. And I still get it wrong sometimes. But He does not give up on me, even though sometimes, I have given up on myself. This is Why, I so very much choose to obey Him, serve Him, because He literally saved me. But I had to open my eyes.
And I have made my mistakes, even in this strategy of understanding. This is why I do not ask any one for money. Or for support. In my ministry.
I want to please Him, for the right reasons. Concerning my relationship with Him, and with you.
When I pray, I want my prayers heard. I want your prayers heard too.
IF I REGARD INIQUITY IN MY HEART, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR ME. PSALMS 66:18.
Much love, Elena
Lord, forgive me, if I have gotten off track on this. You are the way, the truth, and life. Help me to develop my relationship with you, because of who you are, not what you can give. Help me to see, what pleases you. So I can obey you. I thank you for what you did on the cross, for my sins. For taking the penalty of sin away from me. But let me never forget how you suffered, and died. You did it for me. You did it for all of us. I never want to insult you, by just asking what you can give. Yes you do give, but I cannot make it the priority. The priority has to please you, and know you first. In love, in obedience, in serving you. You made me a daughter, that is a servant. To you the King of Kings. This is a relationship. Not a religion. Not rules, regulations, and traditions made by men, or groups. It is knowing you. With love, because you gave your love to me and to all of us. I am thankful Lord! Thank you.
In Jesus name. Amen.
More, and more, and more, we see it in the news, we see it in reports, in communications, more and more people are denying God.
They deny Him, by rules and regulations, they try to enforce on others. They do it, by taking rights away, like prayer. They try and stifle, freedom of speech.
They do it by removing Bibles, from hotels, and in any way they can, they try to force their unbelief on others.
Unbelief…..how can something real, and true, deny Himself, to the world, when He exists? But when someone does not want to believe. One must know, God does exist, but He will not change, or deny Himself, but He tests us.
Well, we reap what we sow. It is a principle. Like what goes up, comes down. People, do not see, they are being tested. Tested, to see if they truly believe, and if they accept what Christ did on the cross.
God for whatever His reasons are, does test us. Everything, we do is written in the book of life. All of our thoughts, all of our actions, all of our behaviors, He tests us. He sees, if we will have faith, or if we will deny Him. He tests us to know whats really in our hearts, and our souls.
I can only surmise, by what my King James Bible says, which is holy and true, and anointed, that He also tests us to see see if we can know the difference between a counterfeit bible, a corrupted bible that has been changed, and revised. He tests us.
The words, are commanded not to be changed. Not to be added to, not to be deleted. Not to be subtracted. But people don’t see this truth. They are being tested. To obey, or not to obey.
Do any of you remember the story of Abraham? Read Genesis 22, from a King James bible. In this story, God tested Abraham. He told Abraham to make his son the sacrifice. Up to the very last moment, Abraham obeyed, when the angel of the Lord, told him, not to lay his hand on his son.
But now God knew by this “Testing” that he was obedient and passed this. God then promised a great blessing, in telling him. His seed would possess the gate of his enemies. And He would multiply Him, because he obeyed God. Abraham named that place. Jehovah Jireh….the Lord will provide. Because God provided the ram, for sacrifice. Like He provided His only Son our Lord Jesus, as the ultimate sacrifice, for us now, in the new covenant.
Do you ever think, what you do will affect your future generations? Like His. Do you ever think how your ancestors, may have had a part in what you deal with now? I do. Who knows what they did? But it was either a curse or a blessing.
So I want to do everything I can to reverse the curses, and to please God. In fear of God. I want Gods blessings, but only if it brings Him glory.
I see this, and I know, we in this journey of life, we reap what we sow. In other words, what goes around comes around. And God is not mocked. Yes we are being tested.
All of us. For someday, we will all stand before God almighty. But…Before that, we will see Jesus in the clouds, and the heavens will be opened. Angels will be on standby and with the trumpets, they will announce that Christ, the King will be here. Christ will separate those who are true, and those that are not.
I believe, we all will be judged. Because of the testing. Because the records will be opened.
Friend, I don’t know you. I don’t know what you have gone through. Why your heart, is the way it is.
But I want to implore you, don’t be like the world. If you believe, in Christ, as your Lord and savior, you need to see, what you are doing. You cannot, and I implore you, you cannot live like the world, and expect your salvation to be in tact.
You cannot. God has His law in place, His commandments, His ways, and if we do not try to obey, with the fear of God, knowing what the consequences are, we will perish. People perish, because of lack of knowledge.
We seem to allow all these things that are going on, and we are not strong, in the face of evil. The battle is the Lords, but God does test you. When you have a chance to speak against unrighteousness, or to praise God, do you? Or do you just turn the other way? And silence is expressed. But it is not golden. Not if anything we allow takes away the glory of God.
Do you expect someone else to do it for you? I have to look at myself, as well, but with all I have, I have determined, to give God glory.
Yesterday, I had a revelation of my own personally. There is much I am grateful for. That God has given me. All of it. There have been things I have asked for, and did not get. But there is also things, I did not want, and did not get, and I am so grateful. In this thought, I realized, I do not want anything if it takes away from God, His glory, that He so deserves, and is due. It was so profound to me, and gave me peace. Because I am dealing with something personally. My goal is to only give Him glory, honor, and praise. Anything else, cannot be the priority. But Him….
Tested, I know, what He wants. It is in obedience, with love, that I try, and by accepting Christ as my Lord, and savior, I cannot treat this gift shabbily. It came at a great cost. His life for ours, for our sins.
So for us to allow anyone, to take that right away, what does that say, when we won’t stand up for what Christ did for us?
All I know friends, it is written in my King James Bible. We are tested. And we reap what we sow. We can do our part.
But it begins by not denying our Lord and savior. Even in little things. He told us, if we were ashamed of Him, He would be ashamed of us, when we are presented to God the father.
Friend, do not be ashamed. Do not deny God…..The world will pay for it. But you can be separate from those that have failed the test.
Just my thoughts today, in Christ, and His love,
How do we add time to our life? Well if you love Jesus Christ, and you have accepted Him as Lord and Savior, you know you are guaranteed eternal life. With Him. After you die.
And if you are reading this trying to learn, I recommend, you make Christ your Lord and savior. Repent. Confess your sins, to Him, and ask Him in your heart. Try to learn. His ways. Beware of religion. Mans ways. Beware with all your heart, the deception that can come from the devil. Know Gods truth. Know Gods laws…..
And if you learn something here as well, that you thought was different, I recommend repenting as well.
But how do we add time, long life to our lives on earth? Hmmmm…..
Well I believe this is the answer. If you will bear with me, in trying to understand. So lately the issue, of the law and grace has been brought to me. And I have been pondering on it more so, and praying and thinking about it. And I know, God is using me to make a point. As He led me to my Bible to find the scripture below. But please read this.
I know many in the body of Christ, really take to misunderstand scripture from Paul. In the new Testament. And what amazes me, about this whole controversy, about being under the law, and grace….
Is that people forget that the law, which was first given by God to Moses, does not change. God did not flip flop, He did not change His mind, when He sent Christ to fulfill the law. Scripture says, He is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God says, it in the Old Testament. MALACHI 3:6 FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT, THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED. And it also says it about Christ, the Son of God. In the New Testament. HEBREWS 13:8. JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY AND FOREVER.
Maybe what Moses added, in religion, as law can be abolished, but not what God commanded even in the Ten Commandments. Yes let me repeat that, maybe what Moses added, but not what God commanded. Moses was a man. Paul was a man. But God is God. That makes it the final authority. And again, He does not change. And when I say what Moses added, I am talking about the sacrificing. This was documented by Moses.
Grace, which is a beautiful thing, that yes, I rely on, still reminds me that the law, is the foundation of our faith. God said He would write those laws in our hearts. But you have to know them. By reading, and embracing His law. When we know Gods laws, put it in our hearts, and are mindful of it, it keeps us from sin. By the holy spirit, we are reminded. It is the standard, to know. When one does not know. We search for truth. It is the foundation of truth.
It is a balance. Scripture tells us, that a false balance is an abomination to God. So we have to find the balance. But I guess what bothers me about all grace messages, that I hear that gets off balance, is they do not teach about the law. How can Christ truly be our cornerstone, in balance, if we don’t know Gods ways, His commandments? Not mans ways. Gods ways.
How can we grow, and have discernment if those laws are not taught? People, think because the law, according to Paul, is a burden, yes even a curse…..in some ways, that is misinterpreted from Galatians 3. That they won’t even look at law. Yet scripture tells us, if we do not keep the law, that is a curse.
BUT THIS PEOPLE WHO KNOWETH NOT THE LAW ARE CURSED. JOHN 7;49. Please note this comes from the New Testament.
I know, by my own walk, how much I rely on grace. Because of my own sins. When I repent, and I still do…I rely on the mercy and grace of God.
But I also know, that the law of God, the commandments, teaches me what God expects. To be honest, if I had taken those commandments, even the ten commandments, the law, to heart as a young woman, I know I would have avoided heartache. But we reap what we sow. I reaped sin, because I did not know them. And the wages of sin is death. Oh how we should teach Gods commandments His law, to each other, and to our children.
His standards yes are of excellence. His ways, we can never reach. Because He is holy, and we all sin we all come short of the glory of God.
But I want to know Him and try with all my being, to try and keep His ways. NOW I think when we get off balance, we can just think grace will do it for us, but it can’t without knowing His law. How can our hearts, our souls be pricked to want to repent?
Are we going to throw away all the other scriptures that remind us to keep the law, by just one thing Paul said, and that was misinterpreted? Misinterpreted by bad Bible versions, and not looking closely at King James word. Why do you think I always recommend a King James. Here is another reason why….
Look at Psalms 119 from a King James very closely. That long chapter, deals with the Holy word, the commandments, and the law. The ways of God.
Are we going to throw away the truths from the Old Testament, and just think the new Testament, which is the new covenant, that it will change our hearts? Why are they both in our King James Bible then, together. Combined?
Hmmmm…I cannot deny the law.
What is the basis of our faith, if we do not know and try to keep the laws of God? We can only accept what Christ did for us, if we understand the law. But we don’t throw it away.
The only thing I see from the old testament, in the laws, that were made, that makes the covenant different. Is that of the sacrificing. We do not sacrifice anything, any more. Because Christ is the sacrifice. Christ is….The lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Which makes us free from the law of sin and death.
ROMANS 8:2 FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
But those other commandments, and laws….cannot be abolished. When we know this is what God gave us to better our lives. To give it length.
If you don’t believe me, believe God, believe this scripture. Do you want long life, peace? Then take this to heart…
MY SON, FORGET NOT MY LAW; BUT LET THINE HEART KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS; FOR LENGTH OF DAYS, AND LONG LIFE, AND PEACE, SHALL THEY ADD TO THEE. PROVERBS 3:1-2
Blessings and Love, may you see this truth, in Jesus name, our Lord. Amen. If you can see this, you can and may break curses over your own life. I am claiming this truth, and pleading the blood of Jesus. Because sickness, that causes death, is a spiritual thing. And if that is understood, about the law then the physical healing can come forth and break the curse. Remember, those that know the law, are not cursed. (see above scripture for validation)
In Christ, and His love,
Please invite me to your church, ladies group, or Christian function.
