KNOWING THE DANGER OF ANGER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2112

When I write these posts “Just My Thoughts” or anything I write I usually do it with the goal to help someone, including myself.  Writing is an outlet, a way to express myself, that sometimes I am at a loss of words to speak.  

But when I write, I usually write from experience.  I mean who wants to listen to someone who does not understand, really what is happening, or who wants to listen to someone who may not even have the experience in some matters.  I do have that understanding in anger.  

After all, I am a warrior.  In many ways, I fight.  I fight, for what is right, and I fight for survival.  I fight, if I have to fight.  But in that I have also seen anger rise up in me.  I have seen a side of me, that has lost control.  And actually that is not a very pretty sight for anybody.  Because one can say, or do things, that are irreversible.  One can make some mistakes, that after the fact, will show no self-control.  And regret.  

Regret, is a terrible thing to have, even if you feel God forgives you.  Even if someone else forgives you.  Because if you have no self-control.  You see yourself, the error of not having self-control, and it will grieve you.  I have been grieved.  

And you need self-control.  You need to let the peace of God really rule your heart.  You cannot have that without Jesus.  Seriously.

I understand this.  I understand the anger in me any way.  I may not understand your anger.  But I understand, how hurt, pain, sorrow, no resolution to issues, can affect your spirit.  In anger.  Anger if not checked, can grow, and fester into a fire, that becomes out of control.  

So you need to know yourself.  But more then anything you need to know Jesus.  You need to know what He says about anger, and you need to know if you do not fix this even at a moment like this, where you are maybe at some peace, but you recognize the characteristic in you.  It could get out of control.  You want to be able to see it, stop it even now, and prevent anger.  

The thing with anger, and I have seen that in myself, is that something very trivial can set it off.  Spilled milk.  Seriously, self control has to see the symptoms, to stop it.  To give it to God.  

Yesterday, I was angry, for a moment.  Frustrated, and I cried out to God.  Please help me.  Because I have been dealing with something that has made me angry, for a very long time.  But I have been hiding it.  And yes, I have been dealing with it, but it could have gotten very out of control yesterday, but it did not.  I thank God.

I do not want it to be expressed in anger.  I want it to be expressed knowing God has an answer.  That peace, will rule my heart.  That I have control, because of who Christ is in me.  Just that cry out to God, helped me.  Because I realized, I need Him.  I surrendered myself to Him.  To His authority, to His ways.  To His truth, and love.  And the anger passed.  And to His glory, something happened, I got hope in this matter.  

I want to encourage you.  Because I know who Christ is.  And there is nothing too big, or too small for Him to handle.  He wants to help you.  But you have to let go of that pride, or anger, or self-will that says, I don’t need Him in this.  You do.  Believe me, you do.  We all need Him.  I don’t care who you think you are.  Those attributes you may have, or those characteristics that have been a part of any kind of success, you may have, can be gone.  So you need God. 

He is the only one who can change our hearts, our minds, our souls, our spirits.  Whatever it is friend, He can resolve it for you.  It may not even be in your time, but if you do your part, to begin the process, you will see the progress.  HE sees us, HE knows we need Him.  But we have to do the calling on Him.  He is the King of Kings, and Lord, of Lords.  He has the ability, we just have to submit to Him.  

I hope this helps someone.  I truly believe the Lord has me writing this for someone, who is so on the verge of exploding, that the consequences could be detrimental to your health, to your well being, to someone you love, or even your career.  Don’t let the devil have his way in this.  

Yes, we are all entitled to be angry, now and then, but in that anger, be careful it does not turn into sin.  Or you go to sleep with anger, there are reasons why God warns us not to do that.  

BE YE ANGRY AND SIN NOT:  LET NOT THE SUN GO DOWN UPON YOUR WRATH:  EPHESIANS 4:26.  

Give it to God, even now.  Give Him your anger, and sin not. He will help you.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,  Elena Ramirez

MY THOUGHTS TO YOU FOR THE NEW YEAR OF 2016

Its the new year. And I want to encourage you this year, more then ever, to seek God. To learn His ways, to obey His commandments, to strive for excellence in your own life. To try and learn.

To change old ways, to be so mindful of the times we are in. To make things right by the ways of Jesus. For He is the way, the truth and life. John 14:6.

You may think, who is she to tell me these things?

I am not a pastor, I don’t have a theology degree. I don’t have any great accomplishments, besides surviving.

But I do know Gods word. My King James word. I am just a writer, who writes for the Lord…

I am just a sinner saved by grace. But I do not take that grace for granted. I am just someone who knows His law. And studies it. I do not just take grace for granted.

I do not want to just stay where I was. Or even where I am, when God is on the throne, and His ways are of excellence.

Yesterday, I heard a pastor say, God loves you just the way you are.

And yes God loves us so much that He sent Christ to die for our sins. But to stay where we are is an insult to what Christ did. But something rose up in my heart when I heard that pastor speak that.

For it does not inspire me, to stay where I am. It does not inspire any of us, if we do not reach for excellence. I was at the bottom of the pit. You may not be able to relate to that. You may have had things come your way, in every way. I was not granted that favor. My life was hard. It still is in many ways…

Things like family, or education, or even confidence did not come easy. I had to fight.

Did you have to fight, when you were a kid, just to survive? I did. And then I had to fight to clear my conscience before God. I had to fight for that which was good, and holy, and to stop walking the fence. Between knowing there is a God, and knowing the ways of the world. Yes fight! A good fight of faith.

Don’t stay where you were. Don’t trust these wolves in sheep clothing to lead you. Thats between you and Christ. To find that narrow path. It is a narrow path, its not easy.

But you know whats harder, being dumb. Or being ignorant to truth, when God gives it to us. He gives us His truth, and commandments in our King James Bible. He says, that His people perish for lack of knowledge. Look it up in a King James.

I wish you all love, and happiness, prosperity, good health that comes first from the spiritual and then is handed down to the physical…

REPENT!

But my prayer is that more then anything that you would see the manifestation of Gods power in your own life. For His glory!

But it is your responsibility to grow. To find out who you are in Christ. He has given you gifts, and callings that are just waiting to be tapped into.

Favor, with people, with situations, but you don’t use it. Some of you, are so beautiful. So famous…. so blessed, and you use it for nothing. Or so it seems.

How sad, it will be for many who will stand before God, and He will ask what did you do for my Kingdom? And they will not have anything to say.

He says, He will tells us I never knew you. And that will include because we did not serve Him.

I don’t want to be one of those. I may just be some girl from the West side of Denver, Colorado. But I know who my father is. I know what Christ did for me on that cross. I know the voice of the Holy spirit, and I will not follow another.

And I will, with all my being especially now as this year starts, I will try and learn and speak His truth. Express it, write it, say it, and give my God glory. Where ever He says go, I must go. If he says go. He has not for a long time…But I will still press on.

I will not be ashamed of the gospel. For it saved me. I will try and learn His ways, and tell others. Because tomorrow is not promised to any one.

Please don’t take your spiritual salvation, and learning for granted. Get a good King James bible, and yes throw those corrupt bibles away. They are not holy. They are not the voice of our Lord.

Step out do something new for yourself and God, your savior the Lord Jesus, don’t stay where you are. Yes God loves you the way you are.

He doesn’t like it, when you don’t grow. When you don’t tell others about Him. Don’t stay where you are. Step out….

This scripture below scares me in fear of God. Because He gives us chances…..

Don’t throw away your chance.

Happy New year…

I love you in Christ, just me, just my thoughts,

AND I WILL MAKE THEE LIKE THE TOP OF A ROCK: THOU SHALT BE A PLACE TO SPREAD NETS UPON: THOU SHALT BE BUILT NO MORE: FOR I THE LORD HAVE SPOKEN IT, SAITH THE LORD GOD. EZEKIEL 26:14. KJV.

Loyalty, is one of the most beautiful attributes a person can have.  And it is not something that you can abuse, or take for granted.  But it is something that must be nurtured.  It is something, that you have to show every once in a while.  It is something, that always has to be a foundation of who you are.

For loyalty will be dedicated to one source.  There are two choices to pick from in loyalty.  And your heart and yes your soul has to know which one to pick.  You have to be faithful to that source.  You have to know that you know, with all your heart, that your loyalty is worthy.

Those two sources, are either God or the devil.  And even here I renounce satan, and give my allegiance to God.  My loyalty.  To the creator of heaven and earth.  Why do that? Because God needs to hear it Himself now and then.  I need to say it myself to build my foundation.  Of my own identity.

I say it here, I write it here, to establish it in my heart, on good ground.  My heart, is inditing a matter of expression, to give God glory.  And to write about loyalty, to bring understanding to our souls.  For the source of wisdom, that I write from, comes from God Himself.  Because He is loyal.

He is loyal to us.  He is so loyal to us, that He sent His only begotten Son, to die for us.  To save us from our sins.  To save us from the destruction that comes when one is not loyal to Him.  So we must be loyal to God, because He is loyal to us.

When one is loyal to God, you see things in truth.  You see things in His light.  You see love.  You see hope.  You see a way, when there was no way.  You see God, and His power, and might.  You see His truth, and you understand how important it is to be loyal to God, through obedience.  You see how precious the sacrifice was of Christ, and you know, that you know, you must be loyal to God, through everything.

This causes warfare.  Why?  Because the other source that wants to steal your loyalty from God comes from the devil himself.  You must never, ever forget, what has transpired in heaven.  You must never forget how the enemy, comes to kill, steal and destroy, and you must very importantly know, that you must be very, very careful not to be deceived.

Prayer. With the armor of God on.  To quench those fiery darts.  To have the mind of Christ.

You must pray.  You must pray in this warfare, to be wise, to be reminded, how important it is to be loyal to God.

First and foremost.  Remember the warfare in heaven.  Remember the angels, that were thrown out with the devil.  They were loyal to the enemy.  They were not loyal to God.

People, do not see they are tested.  They do not see, that God is testing them, to see who they will align themselves with, in loyalty, while we are given time on this earth.  They do not see, how important it is to be loyal to God.  To choose truth.  To choose holiness, to choose His ways, for He is the way, the truth and life.  John 14:6.

You may love someone, but if your loyalty is not to God, you can be so easily deceived.  You can be so easily swayed to choose wrong.  The enemy uses love, to fool people.  He uses that which God created, to be corrupted, and changed so he can deceive you. Even in Bibles.  This is why I only use a King James.  Because it is preserved for 400 years.  Not corrupted.  I am loyal to God in this matter.  And I take heed to the many scriptures that warn not to use or change His holy word, by adding to it, or deleting it.

And if you are not wise to his antics, of the enemy, or to what God wants, you will be fooled.  You will be deceived.

The warfare that was in heaven is also in your heart.  You need to know, that the enemy, wants to deceive you, even by how you love.  What you choose to love.  Who you choose to love.  From friends, to things, to family, to the spirits, that are deceiving, he wants to confuse you.

Oh it is so important to seek God, in these matters.  For He is the only one that will guide you.  He is the great shepherd.  He will steer you away from things, and people that can hurt you.  He knows that we are like sheep sometimes, just so easily swayed to wander off.  He knows this.  But you have to know this yourself and discipline yourself to please God, to obey Him, to be loyal to Him.  To seek Him.  To listen for His voice and only His voice.  His sheep know His voice, and to another they will not follow.  This is loyalty to God.  Again what bible are you loyal to?  Is it truth, or just a version of truth.  Part truth part lie?

The warfare you experience, is because you have not determined this just yet.  You are tossed to and fro, because you have not totally made God, your Lord and savior.  You are not obedient to His commandments and ways.  You know of Him, but you wander off.  And the danger of that, is that your soul, could be in spiritual danger.  You cannot play with your salvation.  You cannot play with being loyal.  I call it walking on the fence line, because that is how I used to be.  I would walk the fence.  I grew up knowing about Jesus.  I grew up, even giving my heart to Him.  But because I was not disciplined.  Because I wanted things my way.  I walked in the ways of the world, and I hit the bottom, rock bottom.  I was between God and the world.  And their is no in-between with God.  It has to be with Him, or you will lose.

Not until, I began seeing my loyalties were not toward God completely I saw I was in warfare.  I saw my friends, and one friend in particular who I loved dearly, who was not loyal to God.  And if anything, the total opposite of anything God represented.   Don’t tell me friends do not matter, they do.  And their spirits influence you, because you are then linked to them by the spirit, they represent.  And if that spirit is not loyal to God, it will not be loyal to you, and they can be your own down fall.  They can open the door, to curses because you give them the authority to open the doors to things, that can hurt you because your love, your love for them gives them that authority.

I have learned, if someone is not loyal to God, they will not be loyal to me.  I no longer have warfare.  That kind anyway.  I have made up my mind, soul and spirit  If I fight….well thats between me and God.  Because He teaches my hands to battle.  And I obey Him.  

HE TEACHETH MY HANDS TO WAR, SO THAT A BOW OF STEEL IS BROKEN BY MINE ARMS.  PSALMS 18:34.

But….I have learned.  Of, the kind of warfare that came from heaven, when the angels fought against each other, and I saw who was truly my friend, and who was not, in the spirit, and it is easy to fight against those spirits that so want to steal my loyalty.  No! I will not give place to the enemy.  I will submit to God, I will resist the enemy, and he will flee.  Because I fear God.  I will not be torn in my spirit to choose, those who are not obedient to God.  Thats their choice!  I am sad for them, but my mind, and heart is made up, I will choose God.  This is where my loyalty must always be.  

So, if you are wondering where your loyalty is?  Then ask yourself, do you fear God?  Because if you do not, you are not loyal to God.  You will have warfare.  Within.  You have to know.  You have to decide once and for all.  Who will you be loyal to?  I fear God, and it is the healthiest thing I can do. 

I choose God.  Who do you choose?  This will affect your decisions, your blessings, your salvation.

Time is of the essence.  Right now, you have this gap in time to choose, but if you do not choose correctly, and with wisdom, and loyalty to choose God.  You can lose out.  For eternity.  Don’t let the enemy steal your blessings, your health, or your love, or anything that God promises to give you.  Its not worth it.  Its not.  You still can be blessed.  If you choose wisely.

Loyalty, is proof of love.  Never forget that.  Christ proved it.  What do you have to prove?

Blessings and love in Jesus Christ, for what He did on the cross for me.  And I thank my Lord Jesus.

NAY, IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH HIM, THAT LOVED US.  ROMANS 8:37. KJV.

LEST SATAN SHOULD GET AN ADVANTAGE OF US:  FOR WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF HIS DEVICES.  II CORINTHIANS 2:11. KJV. 

HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS; AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON.  REVELATION 21:7. KJV.

AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BRUISE SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET SHORTLY.  THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOU.  AMEN ROMANS 16:20 KJV.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.”
‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:1-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Talking about Yoga my thoughts…

What I see is that compromise is so easily thought. And I think the body of Christ not only in this is compromising to do Yoga as a Christian, but it has lost the fear of God. From watered down Bibles, scriptures not taken to heart, and just letting “that feel good mentality” by grace is just wrong.  

Folks remember, what Christ did for you on that cross.  You do not want to compromise that.  I know you don’t but many of you are so deceived, by the ways of the world.  And really thats the enemy trying to steal your souls.  

We need to see this, not only for all of us but individually. Your not judging someone if you tell them something is wrong. Your warning them. And we are called to do that.

This is wrong I believe in the sight of God. Because the spiritualism comes from idolatry practices. And that is sin in the sight of God. I don’t know about you all but I fear God. And I work out my own salvation with trembling and fear.

When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live. Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal. When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. (Ezekiel 33:8-18 KJV)

I am writing this, because I find myself in this position, of searching for a new church.  But it became very apparent to me, by the Lords Holy Spirit that “everyone” should ask this question.

Maybe you find yourself searching for another church, or you may even be in a church, but you need to know what God thinks first, even if you are not that educated in matters of the Bible.  But you want to go somewhere, where the word of God is taught, according to Gods standards.  Not mans.  But Gods standards.  And His standards are always in excellence.

And because I have seen Pastors who do not know this, sadly, it becomes very apparent, it is 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 A DITCH.  Matthew 15:14.  KJB.

I don’t want you to fall into a ditch.  I know more then anything God does not want His people to fall into a ditch.  But we have to know there is a devil.  There is one who deceives.  And this devil, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  And if he could deceive where else would he deceive but by changing the Holy word of God into a lie?  He wants to stop you from receiving a Holy and anointed word.  The devil wants to stop your growth.  He wants to stop truth from coming forward.  To set the captive free.  He wants people in bondage.  He does not want you to see the power of who Jesus Christ is, and that He and only He went to the cross to die for your sins and mine, and that the resurrection proves it.  He wants you to fail.  He wants you to think that all Bibles are the same, and that you just trust the pastor who is teaching it.  

God wants you to know who He is, and that there is none else.  He tells us this, in a King James Bible.  

REMEMBER THE FORMER THINGS OF OLD:  FOR I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE; I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE LIKE ME.  Isaiah 46:9.  KJB.

Even here he is telling you that the old way, the old Bible, the King James Bible….that has been preserved for 400 years is the last set of transcripts, that has His Holy word.  That He has made His truth and commandments to be obeyed.  It is not a version.  It is the original.    

He wants you to know…That He is love, and that He loves you.  He is not a God of hate but of love.  But He does hate evil.  He wants you to know His power, that anything you face, can be dealt with but He is a gentleman, He will not force you, but He wants you to see with Love, who He is.  He wants you to seek Him with all your heart soul, and might, but if there is interference, you will not be able to find Him.  He wants you to see truth and obey.  And this is the warning….

For God wants you to study yourself, He wants you to know what He says, not just man.  Not just what comes from the pulpit….

STUDY TO SHEW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT NEEDETH NOT TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.  II Timothy 2:15.  KJB.

But because we are called to gather, together, and be in unity, in the body of Christ.  We need to know what to ask as we search for a church.  

NOT FORSAKING THE ASSEMBLING OF   OURSELVES TOGETHER, AS THE MANNER OF SOME IS; BUT EXHORTING ONE ANOTHER: AND SO MUCH THE MORE AS YE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING.  Hebrews 10:25 KJB.

You want to go somewhere, where Christ would approve.  We know Christ will return.  This has been told over, and over again to us.  As a warning, we need to get right with God, by Jesus Christ.  We are to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling, of God….Knowing, yes that salvation could be lost.  

We are daily learning, I myself, learn from the Holy Spirit every day, something, that God may bring to my attention.  But it does require for us to study.  It requires prayer.  Christ told us, we err, not knowing the scriptures.

JESUS  ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, YE DO ERR, NOT KNOWING THE SCRIPTURES, NOR THE POWER OF GOD.  Matthew 22:29.  KJB.

So as you go searching for a church, or even sitting to listen to a Pastor, you need to know this.  You need to know what God says.

My heart aches for those who do not know this, and so I can only surmise, what God feels as well, for we are His sheep.  He knows who is His.  And He knows, who are wolves in sheeps clothing.  

And He knows, what the power of an anointed Holy word can do.  And He knows, and sees how man, publishers, have corrupted, His holy word, and changed it.  He sees, how it has been added to, deleted, changed, revised, and turned that which is Holy into trash.  

And He sees, with an ache in His heart, how His people, when they need a Holy word, are deceived.  And they go to a word, that man has corrupted, which is part truth, and part lie, and is no longer holy, and they seek a word, and that word, has no power, no authority, from the Kingdom of Heaven, and it makes it null and void.

And He sees, with anger, those who do not listen to this truth, and may not say anything right now.  But He reserves a time, for judgement, when the Holy books will be opened, and He will judge.  He will judge those who could see through out His holy word, that the warning was there, do not change, do not add, do nothing with His Holy word.  

But these are the children of disobedience.  And He will say, I never knew you.  There are many reasons, why He may say this, but this is one, I believe that is on the top of His list.

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

And if you do not know this, you can see yourself, with your heart, and repent.  And change your Bible to a King James Bible.

You see, its not my job to convince you, but to speak the truth to you.  If that convinces you, and you see this truth, and repent, and pick up and use a King James Bible, then you are convicted by the Holy Spirit.  

I have myself come to realize this truth, because I am that passionate about obeying God in this matter, that He uses me.  But I don’t have to frustrate myself, or argue with those, who do not see this.  This is between you and God.  The battle is His.  I just fight a good fight of faith, and this is what I use to obtain that faith.  I have warned you.  I have warned you in love, and truth.  His truth, His words, not mine.  But it is up to you.

There are so many scriptures, here and there, that warn us don’t mess with His Holy word.  (Proverbs 30:5-6, is just one)  EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE:  HE IS A SHIELD UNTO THEM THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM.  ADD THOU NOT UNTO HIS WORDS, LEST HE REPROVE THEE, AND THOU BE FOUND A LIAR.  KJB.  

 Its a spiritual recipe, that God has preserved for over 400 years.  And when people, publishers, pastors, use a word that is corrupted, it will not taste the same.  It will not have the same affect.  The holiness, has departed.  A spirit of confusion comes in, and in this corruption, Gods truth is not heard.  

You need to make sure, for your own salvation, that you do not make excuses in this, or believe lies from pastors, who defend other Bible versions.  I have seen so much of it sadly, from prestigious pastors, of the world.  And I have seen them deceive people.   I have warned many, and many have ignored me.  But many have listened, and obeyed God.  It is a choice.  But I will remain obedient to God, to speak this. It is my calling.  

I have heard it all.  And the excuses people make….From the words being archaic, to needing to comprehend, in plain language to just plain distortion of something that is Holy to justify it.   Yet in II Peter 1:20 we are told its not up for private interpretation, and the Holy Spirit will give the understanding.  (paraphrasing)  Look it up yourself from a King James Bible.  

And its all wrong, when anyone uses a bible that God has said “Thus saith the Lord. ”  As a commandment…And it is changed.  Its a matter of obedience, and love, to hear and know that anything else but the King James bible is nothing but a book of lies.

Why people would use something where there are actual words, and verses missing astounds me.  But people do not know, and you, if you know, should tell others.  This is not just a small problem but a major issue, that will affect souls.  The body of Christ is in danger.  And the times are changing.  Christ will return, and what will He find?  Souls will be lost…..

But here is just a small sample of words that are excluded, and verses.  From the NIV.

Backbiting, bottomless pit, brimstone, Calvary, carnal, comforter, damnation, devils, effeminate, fornication Holy Ghost, immutable, infallible, JEHOVAH, lasciviousness, Lucifer, mercyseat, Messiah, omnipotent, regeneration, remission, sodomite, slothful, trucebreakers, unthankful, quickened, vanity, whoredom, winebibbers.

Here is just a few scriptures that are missing.  

ACTS 8:37 AND PHILLIP SAID, IF YOU BELIEVEST WITH ALL THINE HEART, THOU MAYEST.  AND HE ANSWERED AND SAID, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD.  KJB.  

Feel free to look some of these up to prove your point, and I do not write all of them down, there is more….but they are gone from the NIV.  

Matthew 17:21, Matthew 18:11, Matthew 23:14, Mark 7:16, Mark 9:44, Luke 23:17, John 5:4…..

So maybe now, I may convince you, but I hope you see how important this is.  I hope you think and pray about this, because truthfully, when you know the truth, and you do not obey God, that is disobedience.  

I have an anointing in this to write about it, and I know the spiritual warfare it brings when there is no obedience.  I have seen it, I have heard stories of those who tampered with the word of God, and they have lost their voice.  Or something has happened to them.  I don’t curse, I am called to bless my enemies.  But there is a curse in this.  God is that serious about it.  

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 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.  KJB.

Do I judge you?  No that is not my job.  But I am called to warn you.  Do you see that your salvation, could be lost just in this scripture?

I hope I have warned you in His excellence.  I have no other motive but to obey God, and to speak His truth in love.  But I know He loves us, and will correct us.  That is what He tells us.  But if we love Him, we are not like those who corrupt the word.  

FOR WE ARE NOT AS MANY, WHICH CORRUPT THE WORD OF GOD:  BUT AS OF SINCERITY, BUT AS OF GOD, IN THE SIGHT OF GOD SPEAK WE IN CHRIST.  II Corinthians 2:17.  KJB.

So the question to ask, a pastor, as you search for a new church.  Or to even present your pastor with…..Or even now to ask yourself….

With what you know now….This is the question to ask:

“WHAT BIBLE DO YOU PREACH AND STUDY FROM?”  

For I understand, God and His Holy word, and the warnings not to change add, or delete His word.  

YE SHALL NOT ADD UNTO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU, NEITHER SHALL YE DIMINISH OUGHT FROM IT, THAT YE MAY KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD WHICH I COMMAND YOU.  Deuteronomy 4:2.  

In Christ, and obedient, I share this with you, in His love, as His servant, for He is the Lord, Jesus Christ. The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  There is no one else. And if you truly want to find your way, for your own life, you need to do it His way. (paraphrasing) 

He is the way, the truth, and life.  

John 14:6  KJB.  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.

The more I grow in Christ, and the more I know His Holy word, I am convicted, when I say or do something wrong.

My spirit, just knows, when I am out of line so to speak.  Or if I somehow get into a place, where I know, I have done something or said something, that is not strong, is not right for lack of better words in the sight of God.  I know it…

Sometimes, we compromise.  Yet we should be strong in who we are in Christ.  If we know the truth, and we are free, totally free, as Christ has told us, and we have given our hearts, we are grateful for another chance.  Yet, we live in this world, we are called not to be a part of the world, but we can stumble.  We can even fall.

I love repentance for this very reason, but with that said, and knowing we can be given grace.  Do we compromise who we are?  I suppose, because I understand, that grace cannot be extended without repentance, what about those, who have given their hearts to Christ, but they think that is it?  As babies in Christ, do we think we have nothing else to do?  I see the difference, because I am no longer a baby in Christ.  

But babies…without truth, or understanding of Gods ways, and yes even bad doctrine.  They don’t think they have to do anything, any more, and they think they have a place in heaven.  They actually in some twisted sense, believe, it now gives them permission to sin.  Their salvation, is in tact, they think….so they do what they want, and sin.  They compromise Gods grace. 

You know, it is a good thing to know good true, King James scriptures.  Because the other versions, compromise a word here and there.  And it does take away the holiness.  So, when I look at my King James, I see.  God is not mocked.

God is not mocked my friends.  And we never get away with anything, we say or do, for the final outcome, is documented in the book of life.  And yes our names if we have given our hearts to Christ is in the lambs book of life.  Two separate books.  

But, if we play with our salvation, if we play with what Christ has done for us, we can have our names removed, or blotted, out of the Lambs book of life.  Once saved, is not always saved.  And many would argue with that, but do your own search, and see, use the King James Bible as the search, and look for words that mention “blot” or “blotted.”

Every thing we have said or done, is being recorded.  We are judged by our words.  I suppose I am writing this, myself, because I do have the fear of God.  And I want to be stronger, as a Christian, and yes as an ambassador of Christ.  

I don’t like hitting people on the head with the Bible, yet, I know, I have to be firm in my own belief.  I cannot compromise.  I found myself, yesterday chatting with a friend, but I felt like I compromised who I was in Christ, and worse, that I compromised what Gods word says.  I repented.

Such a balance we have to find, in who we are in Christ.  But truly, we have to be mindful yes, of His grace.  But do we compromise?  One compromise, can lead to another, and then we would be totally deceived by the enemy.  I just want us to see, because I know I have not heard this message, from any prominent ministry, but one must be so careful.

I love the Lord, I love serving Him, and I pray He uses me, but I also want to be someone who speaks truth, boldly, and not compromising, yet with love.  I wanted this person to feel love, and not the wrath of God.  

Yet, could we do a disservice if we are not saying exactly what God says?  Lord forgive us.  Help us.  This is where the word “judging” can come in, because many know truth, but do not say anything, because the enemy can use judging to interrupt truth.  Yet we are called to expose darkness.  Do we, speak truth or do we compromise?  

This can cover so very, very much.  But, please my friends, do not take your salvation for granted.  I don’t know what you have learned, or if you come from a place, where you think once saved, is always saved.  Christ told us, that there would be many who would come to him, and say didn’t we cast out devils, in your name.  And He would say….depart, I never knew you.Those are words you do not want to hear, when you stand before Christ, at the end of your lifetime. 

Be very aware of Gods grace.  But try, my friends, try, to not compromise who you are.  Repentance, before a Holy God, being humble, trying to please Him, is what counts.  And why? In fear of Him like the many scriptures tell us.  Oh the fear of God is healthy!

I think of this example, say you have a boss, you love, he is kind, he is generous, he is flexible.  But when he says don’t do something, don’t do it.  And why, because you want your job.  You want to please this boss, because you know, your livelihood is at stake.  You need your job.  Well, I look at it this way myself.  I know God is love, I know He is kind.  He is generous, He extends grace, but I have to take all of His word, and not compromise it.  And why, because I do want to serve Him, but I also know my salvation is at stake.  I need God, I need to please Him.

Sometimes, when I hear some pastors, they act like God flip flops.  He does not.  When it comes to grace, and the law, they think that is it, but all Christ did, was save us from the law of sin and death.  Not His law!  Not His commandments!  They still stand.  Whats wrong with us, if we cannot see that?  We would be deceived.

So friends, keeping a humble repentance before Christ. This is healthy, and yes God will extend grace, but we have to be aware.  We have to be sorry, we cannot compromise.  And I even say this a few days before Halloween, because many Christians think it is o.k. to celebrate this evil holiday, and it stems from hell.  The bottom line is it does not honor God.  Don’t compromise your blessings, or your place with God, or even the fear of God, to play in this spiritual realm.  Fearing God keeps us out of trouble.  

I hope this makes you and me both think.  How precious our salvation is.  Christ gave His life, and He suffered so greatly for our sins.  How can we not look at the cross, and see what He did, and openly compromise what He did.  Oh God forgive us, and God forbid.  Please friends, take this to heart.

Much love, I share it, not wanting to hit anybody on the head, yet so mindful of what Christ did.  I am sorry, Lord, help me not to ever compromise.  Especially, because you gave your life, and paid the penalty for my sins.

BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD I AM WHAT I AM: AND HIS GRACE WHICH WAS BESTOWED UPON ME WAS NOT IN VAIN; BUT I LABOURED MORE ABUNDANTLY THAN THEY ALL:  YET NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS WITH ME.  I CORINTHIANS 15:10.

Just my thoughts….Elena Ramirez

I dedicate this to my friend Shirley Duran.  I love her in Christ, and pray truth will prevail.  Gods truth.

 

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR REASON FOR SEARCHING FOR CHRIST? ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez

And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. (Mark 4:5-9 KJV)

There are some who seek Christ because of the storms of life, they need something or want something because they realize they cannot do it on their own.  Maybe they heard a prosperity message, and someone made God to be an ATM.  If they planted a seed, or supported a ministry.  So they jumped on that band wagon, and thought, yes, I need God.

So the perception for thinking and wondering about God, could be about motive.  And I suppose this is why I am writing about this.

For there are some who realize they need a savior. That Christ is the highest source of power and love, and they see what He did on the cross.  They see, what He did.  They sense His compassion, and realize the things He said.  Are true.  They know, they need someone like Him, to take control, of their lives and they totally give into His love.

There are some, who are planted in stony ground, and Christ warned us that could be evident in some of us. You know, there are many reasons, why we can be choked up, or lose root in Christ.

Maybe your not getting an answer to prayer. I know, that there have been many times, the Lord has not answered a prayer of mine, and I could have given up. But something about just seeking Him for who He is, and not what He can give me, has given me tenacity to hold on, and to keep on no matter what.

I also have noticed, when I was very weak, and confused a while back, it was because of the Bible I was using.  I was using a Bible, that had missing scriptures, and the wording was so compromised, that if I had stayed with that Bible, I think I may have lost faith too.  Because there was no anointing.

Thankfully to God, I discovered the discrepancies, and went back to my King James Bible.  The oldest, and most preserved Bible that has been given to the public.  And where I hear the voice of my Lord.  And those others, I could not.  I had a spirit of confusion, and yes, I could have lost my root, and faith could have died.

Remember “faith” it is a size of a seed.  But if it is not nurtured, it can die.  But if it is nurtured, one can grow to be a tree of righteousness.  Yes, thats my goal.  For His Glory!

And He said, Whereunto shall we liken the Kingdom of God?  Or with what comparison shall we compare it?  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:  But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.  Mark 4:30-32

So, I do see how we can get choked up, or lose faith, or fall away.  But it takes a commitment.  But sometimes one needs to ask yourself, why am I seeking Christ?  Or why don’t I?

Friend, we all need to look within.  If we think we can do it on our own, you know, we will become our own worst enemy.  And that is the plan of the devil.  We have to see his evil tactics, and know better, but only God can give us that wisdom, as we seek Him, and in fear of Him.

If you are trusting your heart, for guidance, your heart, because it is not centered on Christ, could mislead you.

THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS, AND DESPERATELY WICKED:  WHO CAN KNOW IT?  JEREMIAH 17:9  KJV.  

There were many times, I trusted my heart, and because I was not seeking Christ, I sinned, or I had very poor judgement.

And we need to find the balance somewhere, to yes trust God for our needs.

But, if that is the only reason why we would seek Him, that is misleading, and so insulting to our savior.

We need to see who He is, and when we do, then we realize, the greatest relationship, we could ever have, is with our Lord.  Why?  Because you see the love, you see the compassion, and counseling He can give, and to be honest, I never want to live without that.

You see that His love was so great that it took the penalty of our sins.  My goodness, there is no greater love, and He gave that for me.  He gave it to you too, if you see with eyes of love.

So to go back, in anyway, to live without Him, would never be worth it.  Just my thoughts, about the matter….  I search for Him, because of who He is.

I search for Him, because I have learned, how great His love is.  Even when He did not answer my prayers.  Even if I have struggled.  Maybe thats why I do love Him because I see what He did, and went through.

It is all so subjective, to each one of us.  And this is not about condemning us.  Because He is so merciful, but He teaches us, and shows us the difference.  He shows us, what is important.  And my relationship with Him, is the greatest thing I have.

So…I suppose my question today, is that Christ would also prompt you to think. Why do you search for Christ? Is it because of what He can give you, or because of who He is?

You don’t have to answer here. But just a thought. Blessings, and love, Elena. https://elenasjustmythoughts.wordpress.com
