Have you ever had company over, and gave your “clean” house a thorough cleaning?
I liken this to our souls as well. You see, when you know company is going to come over, and visit, say for some kind of event, or holiday, you take the extra time, to shine it up, dust, sanitize, and make your home presentable, so your guests, will find it in the best condition.
Recently for Labor Day, we had family over. We are not one for entertaining, but because it was family, we wanted to bless them, and so we did extra, and more when it came to our cleaning.
Now mind you, we keep a clean house, anyway, we are organized for the most part, and we keep up with daily chores, washing dishes, sanitizing etc.
But I have to admit, dusting, is not one of my priorities. In fact, I hate to dust. It still gets done, but it is not done constantly.
But it made me think, about our souls. I don’t think many of us, want to admit this, but I truly believe, even the best Christian, has to maintain your soul, and clean up some things.
Its called growing, it is called repenting, and it is necessary, for your own growth, to every once in a while do some reflecting, and pray, and ask God if there is something that has to be cleansed?
You see, just as we had guests over, Christ visits our hearts, and souls as well. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Christ to find something in my soul, that would “grieve the Holy Spirit.”
I just know myself that well, when I am feeling off, maybe cold, or indifferent, that I have to run to the throne, and seek my dear Lord. I need to repent, I need to be humble, I need to cry to Him, and say Lord, I don’t understand. But help me, help my faith.
I guess this is why I have written my two books, about faith, and curses, because I so want to please God, and I want to help others as well, but I know, how things can affect me, when I am not right with God, or I am off.
There are so many ministries, that do not address, this, in fact, they are into self, or pleasing yourself, and that is so wrong. We have to make pleasing God the priority.
So you have to do some reflecting, you do have to discipline yourself, you do have to ask God, and “try” to do that housecleaning. Yes, God will make the difference, and wash you by the blood of Jesus, but you have to check out your robes of righteousness. Is there a stain, from a thought, a sin, a place, where hopefully you did not let the devil in?
You see, these are our souls. We have to maintain them. The Bible tells us to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling. Oh the fear of God is such a good thing. It keeps us out of trouble.
Yes we can all use help, in cleaning, as if our own homes. I would love to have a maid, but since, I don’t I have to do it. In this photo, my husband and son stepped in, and helped a little. That was so nice, and I was so touched by their help, I took a photo of them. God bless them….
A good friend, may help you, counsel you, and even extend grace, when it comes to matters like this. To help you as well.
But it is our responsibility, to dust ourselves off, and maintain our relationship with Christ. Friend, don’t take your soul for granted, even if you have accepted Christ.
Yes, you were given a clean garment, a robe of white, when you made Christ your Lord, and savior. And He is so wonderful, He will give it to anyone, who calls on Him, and believes. But after that you better watch it, and know for you walk in this earth, and the enemies goal is to deceive you, and to cause you to stumble, and yes fall.
And if you have not friend, accepted Christ I implore you to seek Christ. Make it right with Him. This is not about religion, this is about knowing the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Make it right with Christ. This is your soul, and someday, when you die, you do not want to have known you had the chance even by reading this, and not making it right with Christ. Turn to Him, seek Him, repent, and make Him your Lord and savior. You will never regret it. I am so glad, He found me, but I made Him my Lord and savior.
I am a firm believer in repenting, daily, I suppose its like my daily dusting. But I do it because I so want to please father, and like I said, I just know when something is off, and when I do this, my joy, my sense of peace returns. God knows, when our spiritual houses are clean, and I want Him to see it clean, and acceptable for His presence.
Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts. Elena Ramirez
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken Thou me according to Thy word. I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me: teach me Thy statutes. Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heavings: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word. Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me Thy law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth; thy judgments have I laid before me. I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame. I will run the way of thy commandments when Thou shalt enlarge my heart. Psalm 119:25-32
I love the King James scriptures, and I try to tell you in love, how important it is to use a King James, but there is no way any other version, can speak this truth like this, the way God intended it to be, and the anointing of this scripture speaks volumes. In fact, this entire chapter, talks about the word, and His law, and His testimonies. I recommend reading all of Psalms 119 from a King James Bible…it is long, but it so ministers to my heart when I read it concerning Gods word. Dust off your bible, and read it. Why would anyone want less? And to deny yourself Gods food for thought, is starving yourself. Another thing perhaps, to write about another day…..
Just another Thought…..
Friendship….what does it mean to you? There are some people we call friends, but do we know them, truly?
I mean, we ask to be friends here, on FB, Twitter and other Social media outlets and some folks we know, and some we do not know. But what is our expectation? Do we want to build true friendships? Or just collect people?
Or if we are Christians, do we want to find people, who believe like we do? So we can call on them to pray? Or we can be there for them to pray for them? Or to chat now and then because as Christians we should relate to each other.
Every one has their reason to be a friend or not to be a friend. And I know, myself, I do cherish you folks. And yes, there are some of you, that I love so dearly. Even though, we have never met….
But, I have unfriended people myself, or blocked them because of differences, in the way one relates as well. Sometimes, you know people you have called them friends, and yet something happens, and it changes everything. And sadly some friendships have been broken.
I have learned some things here, about myself, and how important it is to be friends with Christ first. Things that He expects in friendship is loyalty, being humble, being kind, overlooking differences.
Forgiving….Yet, He is my savior, so there is more that I have to look at to honor Him. So obedience has to come into the foundation to always think and be as He is in love.
And because of that….I think one thing I have learned if someone is a Christian, we are supposed to be brothers and sisters. No, ifs, buts or maybe. And as brothers and sisters we are called to love one another. This is what God commanded us.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40
True friendships though, need a foundation. They need to have something in common. And if one person does not work at the friendship and the other one does, wow….what a let down. Communication is important, but lets be honest, sometimes we cannot always communicate. So grace must be extended.
But it is kind of a drag, when you work at the friendship, and the other person does not. It seems to be one sided. And I admit, I get weary, when I don’t see progress. Or they do not appreciate me, or my attempts. In friendship. I am not trying to brag, but I think I am a good friend, because of Christ. I think I can bless a friend. I have a lot of love, but when it is not appreciated, I learn to put a shield on my heart.
I have learned to choose Christ, over friends. When I saw the way they truly thought, and learned that they did not agree in faith with me, well I have walked away. After I saw their true colors. It hurt me, as it may have that person, but some influences are not good. And we have to choose Christ first. I have to choose His ways, He is my greatest friend.
We need to develop friendships, that are based on Christ. Christ was a friend to all, but his closest friends were His disciples. Yet there was Judas, and Judas betrayed Christ. Oh those feelings of betrayal, and pain, we get when we trust people, and they let us down.
We need to be mature, we need to give someone respect, we need to see even if we are right, that it is better to be kind, then to reject them. And there are times, we don’t know, so we pray.
I have seen a few articles that touch base on this, and the affects of being unfriended, or rejected in a social media forum. And people do get wounded. So even though we are behind our computers, we need to think about that other person. But more then anything, I want God to be pleased by the way I react or communicate with someone, in these forums. As a friend….
Well, anyway, I don’t know why or how to always understand….but I pray for wisdom in my friendships. I am learning, it is a process, so lets all be kind to one another, as we grow together with Christ.
Just sharing right now…..I love you my friends. I want to help you. I want to help others by my writings. I don’t want to point fingers, because hey it could be pointed back at me.
But I really do want to be a true friend in Christ.
I may be wearing my heart on my sleeve right now, but I long for true friends. Friends who care, and friends who are loyal, and honest, but care about my feelings, even if I am wrong. But they will use discretion to talk. I long for true Christian friends, who are true in Christ.
But don’t just unfriend me, or reject me. That is the most saddest feeling to have a friend walk away, and you don’t know why. Especially if that friend was a Christian. I think the most wounded feeling I have ever had is to be rejected by people I loved, and called them either a brother or sister in Christ. And it has happened to me, and it broke my heart, for a long time. Because I loved these people.
To be rejected by them goes back to how I imagine Christ must have felt by Judas.
At least if I do walk away, I will tell you why. I hope to anyway.
Just a thought about friendship in Christ. Thank you Priscilla, for being witness in the spirit, to bring this post out. To ask me to write about friendship.
I wrote it earlier, but felt it was too much at the moment, but God knows…
With love, Elena Ramirez
Lord, help me to be the kind of friend you want me to be in Christ. Thank you Lord. You are my greatest friend, and you never unfriend me. In fact, you search for me. And teach me. As I search for you. I want to feel like you feel. And honor your feelings, as my greatest friend. In whatever situation, Lord there is no greater friend then you. In Jesus name, Amen
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity…..Proverbs 17:17

I have an urgency in my heart, a great stirring to write this word. Because for someone, who is reading this, if you do not heed this, your soul, may be doomed for eternity. It may be too late for you if you disregard this!
There is no way, any of us, can have hope, or be optimistic, for anything, if God is not in the picture. If God is not the source, to put that hope or optimism in. There is frankly, no hope.
I don’t know how any one of us, can refuse to acknowledge, and accept a God, who created the heavens and the earth. Who breathes life, into every living thing. Who knows every secret, every bit of wisdom, and knowledge. Who is life itself…..
I don’t know how any one of us can refuse to see He sent us Jesus Christ, as the way, the truth and life. No other false god, can do what Christ can!
I don’t know how someone can yes, stupidly, can deny the only one who can make a way, and a miracle when you need one.
And we all need miracles now, and then. I don’t care who you are, you don’t leave hope like this to the chances of luck. There is no such thing. Either you are blessed or cursed. This is life! The way God made it. And He has principles, that either we follow or don’t. But He gives us the choice.
But let me refresh my own memory. Yes, I was a stupid person at one time. Yes, I went around, in my young adult years, denying God. Denying who He is, and what He could do. How arrogant, and yes how stupid I was.
You see, those were the darkest, loneliest, and most frustrating times of my life. But it was my fault. For it is a choice. I had no vision. I had no direction. I had no sense of true love. I had nothing! I was a miserable failure. A miserable, human being, who had fallen into sin, and I was practically destroying myself.
Sin separates us from God. And until we repent, we are doomed.
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear. Isaiah 59:2
When you are young, you think you can do almost anything, and some have so much “pride” that sometimes, you can be so full of yourself, that confidence, is not a problem. Denial of who God is, in that confidence, is the problem.
I know. I hit the bottom of the barrel. I hit hard. I had no one, or true friends, to help me see my way through. No love. Substitutes, cannot be found, in money, drugs, sex, or self. Only when I cried out to God, who heard my cry, did I begin to find my way. And I will tell you the truth. I reaped what I sowed, into my own life. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. Galatians 6:7. Read it from a King James.
I have walked now with God for over 35 years. I will not let go. But, I just have a sense, if I had not denied God even when I did, things would be different. I reaped my own destruction, by denying God. But God….yes He is the great restorer, and healer. But I have my own battle scars to remind me. How lost I was, and misguided.
I give you this word, maybe you are young, maybe you don’t know better. Maybe you are old, and do not know better…
But it is better to turn now to God, Atheist, Agnostic, and yes, slow believer. Its not too late, He can change your life, your circumstances, even save your soul.
Turn to God with all you have. Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, and here is an important key, repent!
Give Him praise, Glory and Honor. See who He is. See His love. See the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus, that He gave on that cross, for your sins, and yes for mine. Serve God with all your heart!
Tell others about Jesus, because to tell you the truth, you have no other time but now to do it. (slow believer) This is your chance, NOW IN YOUR LIFETIME!!!!
Don’t deny Him. Let Him heal you, by His stripes you are healed. Let Him heal your emotions, your sorrow, your own losses. Let Him counsel you, and give you direction. Let Him take your pain and sadness. Let Him love you, because He does.
So much so, He took the penalty of all of our sin, and on that third day after His death, He even defeated death. Because He took the keys from the devil, and arose. This is why Resurrection Sunday is so precious to us as believers. Also known as Easter. But it is not a pagan holiday. It is truth. And because of this, this is why He is the way, and life!
Don’t bring curses into your own life. Don’t lose the only hope, you can truly have. Because the truth of the matter, if you deny God, you accept satan. This is what God sees, and it is recorded in the book of life, concerning you.
To deny God, it means….You accept the liar, and the thief, who comes to kill steal, and destroy your life. You accept, the deception, and the misguided sense of who you are. For you will never truly know your potential, if you deny God. You will always be lost. Yes full of yourself, with your arrorant, angry foolish self. But really full of the devil. Full of the spirit of lies. For you are lying to yourself. Love, that you truly long for, will never be yours. Because it is not based on God, and God is love. If you deny God, you deny yourself love.
I am not going to sugar coat this, it is truth, and yes I am a truth seeker. I want to bless God. Because the truth of the matter is, there is no hope without God. There is no optimism for anything to change if you deny God. You are your own worst enemy if you deny God.
But you can start, even where you are. You can seek God, you can find Him, truth of the matter is He knows where you are. But your sins, your denial of Him, has separated Him from you. You can begin, atheist, agnostic, and slow believer. You can begin, right now!
But it is up to you. It is a choice. Every day it is a choice, but I choose to stay close to my Lord. Who is that way. No I don’t have it easy. But I have full assurance, in my faith, that He is real. God is real. And I will never be so stupid to deny Him, when He has proven Himself to me, over and over, and over again. Maybe not always in the ways I wanted but He is my hope. He is my savior! My Lord! My healer and so much more! He is my optimism. And I will never let Him go.
So, to each their own. It is a choice. This is not up for debate or argument. I know, but I plead with you, atheist, agnostic, and even the slow believer…..I plead with you, because your soul is at stake.
Maybe you can share this message, with your friends, or maybe you are ashamed so you will not. You never want Christ to say that to you. That you were ashamed of Him. And He would say, I never knew you.
And if you do not make it right with God NOW! You may face eternity in hell. This is the word of the Lord, from my King James Bible, and I know that it is true, and holy, and is truth. Open a King James bible, to learn the truth. To receive, the anointing and holiness. No I don’t recommend any other Bible. Why? Because they have been corrupted. From all the revisions, that have been made. Part holy, part truth, part lie. No, go for the purity of a word, so your own spirit can be pure. A coloring book, cannot give you all the truth you need.
So you need faith, you need to see, the truth.
BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM, FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM. HEBREWS 11:6
In Christ, Elena Ramirez
Lord, obedient, I have written this, use it for your glory. In Jesus name. Amen

I woke up different today. I woke up, with a new hope, for miracles. I thought to myself, I wrote a book about “HOW TO HAVE FAITH MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.”
To be honest, I have to give glory to God in this, because He spoke it to my heart.
So I have faith, but whats next?
They can happen! Oh I know, that I know the key is in my faith. To having miracles. I know that I know, miracles, are not just an illusion, of some sort. No they are real. Its my inspiration, to get me on another road….maybe for you too. As we walk through life. We need inspiration to know, it can happen!
Miracles, happen every day! Sometimes, we don’t hear of them, and sometimes, we just take them for granted. But they are meant to give glory to God.
That’s my goal in life that I know, that I know it. I am meant to give glory to God. Things are not always easy for me. But that is in my heart, to give God glory, and that makes it easy. For miracles….
You see, knowing who I am, from my conception, I am a miracle! I was not supposed to be born. Long story short, my mother took measures to not have any children. Not just precautions, she had an operation! But my dad prayed for me. And I was conceived, and born. The doctors were in shock! So I am here, and thats a miracle. God made that easy….
Miracles, can happen. And this is what I want you to see. Knowing, sometimes, we can get in a funk, and get depressed, get distracted, to think this is it, it cannot change! But it can!
Oh dear friends, I know, what it is like to get like that. I know what its like to feel trapped, and think, it will never be different. Whatever it is. Sometimes, we get a report, that seems so final. Something from a doctor, or even our own negative thinking. So we limit ourselves, by what reality is. NO! We have to change that kind of “stinking thinking.”
We have to see if we believe, in Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior, that He told us, we would do great things…..He is our savior! And as our savior, He taught us, and showed us miracles! Think of all the miracles He did! The Bible says, He did so many, that they are not even numbered, or recorded!
All I know right now, more then ever! I am holding onto the hope of miracles. I am holding onto the dear Lord. I am holding onto His promises! God does not lie. Man does, people do! That is why, I am so adamant to have a pure holy word, to claim, as that promise, from the King James Bible.
I want my miracles in tact! I don’t want anything blocking that miracle. And if it means I use a pure holy word, that is anointed, that may even sound archaic in sound. I am using it! I love my King James Bible. I don’t want anything to change my miracle, that I can have. I know the scriptures and I know, that if I don’t know something in the scriptures, the Holy Spirit can reveal it to me. Interpret it for me. I don’t know how many times, I just opened my Holy Bible, God spoke to me. But I had my part. I remember when He showed me discrepancies from other Bibles, and I saw, how the devil lies!
Wow! You know, I am just going to keep this short and sweet for now. But I want to close with this thought! Rewire your heart, your mind, you thoughts, by believing in miracles! Like a computer you can be reprogrammed.
Miracles can happen! I have Faith, I wrote my book about Faith….knowing, I had it. But you know, God leads us, step by step. And He led me to today, to say…..
Miracles can happen! I am focusing on that. If your interested in getting my book, to find maybe even one thing, in there that will activate your miracles, please check out this link.
http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com and order my book.
Be encouraged my friends! Be encouraged and don’t give up hope. No matter what you have done, and you think you have blown it, or missed a chance. God can turn it around. God can make a way, where there was no way! HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE! John 14:6.
All we have to do is come to our Lord! Humble ourselves, repent….Ask for wisdom, ask for guidance. Ask Him for that miracle! Tell Him, you know He can do it. Tell Him you align yourself to His truth, and denounce the enemy, in any part of your life! Submit to God! Resist that devil, and he will flee.
God will give it to you, to show you that miracle! Or to prove Himself Mighty! He is almighty God, and I praise Him! Glory to His holy name!
Don’t let the world, or the devil, or the reality of something tell you it cannot change. It can! Have faith! Have hope….Stir yourself up. Get in your King James Bible read His promises! Claim them! Get my book. Give hope to someone else, let it be an epidemic.
What you do for others, can be returned to you. Tell someone, miracles can happen. Tell them you have faith for them. Tell them, love. Love never fails!
It is a principle….there are many secret principles. And love is one of them…I know a few of them. And I know, with new hope today….that I have hope I can have miracles! So can you!
The following scriptures, are the first recorded mention of “miracles” that I want you to see. From my concordance. But in giving glory to God, I want you to see His heart, and what He said about it, and what offended Him. These kind of things can stop our miracles. For it is sin, it is iniquity in His eyes. Let us strive to please our Lord, for miracles. Be blessed, as you read these scriptures. I pray for the body of Christ to see their miracles. To give God glory…..
The Lord is long suffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and four generation. Pardon I beseech Thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of Thy mercy, and as Thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now. And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord. Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice; Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it. But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed Me fully, him will I bring into this land whereinto he went and his seed shall possess it.
Friends, as I close, hearken to the voice of our Lord. Pray your spirit, is right before Him. Follow Him completely. He is the way…Yes and always give Him glory!
Love you all in Christ, Just my thoughts today,
I have to admit, I get sad, when I hear pastors, or even other Christians, have a false sense of their salvation.
They take it for granted. They call it a free gift, but yet, because they do not see what Christ really did for them, by His suffering, and on the cross, they abuse it.
They walk in this false sense of “grace” that the devil deceives them with, a lie from hell itself, and they do not have the fear of God, nor do they uphold the “Law.” From the Old Testament.
Folks, Christ said, that many are going to say Lord, Lord, and He is going to say, I never knew you. Why because you did not really know Him. And when He says that, when you stand before Him, will that give you access to heaven? I don’t believe so.
Again, I suggest, what voice are you listening to? What Bible version, are you reading? I have said this in my book, HOW TO HAVE FAITH, but you do not want a coloring book, to take the tests in life. Let alone your faith! You want Gods pure word.
This is important, because you need the purity of Gods word, to be in place. I suggest the King James Bible. But know this, that it is your responsibility, to find the truth.
FOR NOT THE HEARERS OF THE LAW ARE JUST BEFORE GOD, BUT THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED. ROMANS 2:13.
Please see this scripture carefully. You are not justified, unless you keep and do what the law says!
Do you try to keep the law, even though you are a Christian? Do you have the fear of God? Do you discount the old testament? But only embrace parts of Gods word?
I am telling you, for the sake of your salvation. Get truth, get right, with God, in fear of God. The devil is trying to deceive and cripple the body of Christ, and we need to warn others, and we need to be the example Christ told us to be in love. Seriously. It is very disheartening, when I listen to many, and they actually believe, they are o.k. but they live like hell. Their consciences are not centered, on how precious our salvation is. They are not pierced, with the sense of what Christ did, to spare us from the penalty, the legality of the devils hold. So they play with it. Living life, without any worries, or even repentance.
Don’t play with your salvation. We are to work it out, with trembling, and fear. Repent, and read a Bible that is Holy!
And know this, and I have to emphasize this, because when Paul was talking about the law, he was talking about being free from the law of sin and death. This is what we are free from. Not Gods law.
It behooves any of us, to think that we would be beyond Gods law. God understood, how His law, was difficult, and yes Christ makes a way for us. But it is still there. And you cannot disregard it. Just like you would not exceed driving a certain amount of miles per hour, because you can get a ticket! Or cause someone else death, by driving like a looney, laws are there to protect all of us! God knew, and He does not flip flop.
Look this is the law, we are free from. Not Gods commandments!
FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS, HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. Romans 8:2
Sin, is a law, that the principle of it, requires to pay the penalty. The wages of sin, is death. Christ paid it, but don’t abuse it!
Many are looking for loop-holes, to get away from the teachings and yes, the commandments of the Old Testament. Saying, this is the new covenant, and the old covenant, is abolished. Thats wrong! Christ said, He did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.
We are to make sure, we are doing everything, in our own ability, to keep that salvation in place. Yes, it is ours for eternity, but you don’t play with it, in that false sense of security.
You keep the law, and in doing so, you can have that grace. But that grace is not available if you do not have the law, front and center. And that law, includes the fear of God! He holds our souls, in His hands.

An explanation, as to what this word means. But, do Christians, or those searching for God, take it to heart? Only God, can reach the heart. But how can one hear Gods true voice? And discern a counterfeit? To truly, know, what is truth. I believe, I know God’s voice, and I know His truth, and the difference between His truth, and a counterfeit.
When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto His voice; For the Lord thy God is a merciful God; He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy Fathers which he sware unto them. Deuteronomy 4:30-31.
Our world is in tribulation.
We as believers, more so, should be in tune, to the voice of the Lord. In these times of tribulation. I believe we are in tribulation. There is great unrest, in this world we live in. Yes, as Christians, we should not be confused, or deceived, or unaware, of truth….but many are. And I hate to say this, but they cannot grow, to be who they should be, because many, are no more ahead, so to speak on the vine with Christ, because they are not sure of Gods true voice. They have accepted a counterfeit voice.
Christ told us, that His followers, His true followers, would know His voice, and to another, they would not follow.
Verily, verily I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief, and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them and the sheep follow him, they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow but flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. John 10:1-5.
I propose to you, here, as you see this scripture, that any other Bible version, then the King James Bible, is a strangers voice. And whoever is using another Bible, is not hearing Gods true voice. With clarity, and with true discernment.
Shocking huh? Well thats the way I see it. I see it this way, because I do not know the “strangers” voice, who sat in an office, and took the King James Bible, and added a word here, changed a word here, deleted a word here, and totally changed the context, to become a “voice” that is now the authority, as the Bible. I see it this way, because I do know my Lords voice, and it is distinct, and clear, and the confusion is gone. I see it this way, because before I stopped using the King James Bible only, I would get mixed-signals. Part truths. It was like hearing Gods voice with static on the radio. Sometimes, the message came in, and sometimes it did not. Sometimes, I heard things, I should not have heard, because there was interference. The devil was trying to block the word, and He knew I did not have the right Bible.
Only God knows the heart. How do I know, that whoever was in authority, to change the Bible, from these publishing houses, to revise it, had the same intention, as God did?
Especially knowing, Revelation 22:18-19. 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.
There is a curse in that word. That in itself, puts the fear of God in me, and tells me not to be a part of that curse, by purposely reading, applying, meditating on, praying, etc. anything, that takes away or adds from Gods word!!!!!
Knowing, we are not to add, or take away from Gods word! Why can’t people see this?
The King James Bible, has been established for over four hundred years. In 1611, the King James bible, was established. And it has been in print, for over four hundred years. Making it the most, read, and authorized Bible for centuries. So why not trust its authenticity? Why? Because people think the revisions, will give them clarity for understanding. Instead, it defeats the purpose, because only God, can give interpretation. By His Holy Spirit. II Peter 1:20. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. Here the Lord, specifies in His word, that no one can interpret it, but again by His Holy Spirit. You have to see this by His truth.
Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing?…. V2 I counsel thee to keep the King’s commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God. Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.
Do I want to call other Bible versions evil? No. Only because the word of God is part there. But it reminds me of a radio, or an instrument, that has a tap on it. Or where it has been tampered with, and the signals are not clear. But I do not trust, the holiness, to be there. Or the power of God, to do great things. Because man’s carnal hands have changed the wording.
There is a lot of history, that gives an explanation, of the many revisions, translations etc. But…You don’t think, or know, that God knew, that in the future, men, would take His Holy word, and avert it? Changing it, so they could have copyrights? Knowing they would claim copy rights. To change it, at any whim, and yes, for the sake of money. He wants you to see the root, of why they have changed it.
Why doesn’t the King James Bible have copy rights? Because it is preserved. Psalm 12:6-7. The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.
I truly believe, with all my being, God is testing those who will seek Him through His true word. He is looking for those who will teach through His true word, the King James version. etc. I believe God is looking for people, who can see through the facade of other Bible versions. That they put one and one together, and see the discrepancies.
Why would anyone trust, a source, to believe, that another Bible is authentic. When, Gods word, says over and over again, to beware of those who would change it.
Whose voice are you listening to? When you read another Bible version? Gods voice, or the voice, of someone who took the word of God changed it, rearranged it, modified it, deleted some of it, and who are these people? Whats their agenda? Are they Christians, scholars, atheists? hmmmm.
This is something, you need to ask yourself as well? Whether you believe me or not, but I think it should be addressed. I think, a person, needs to search God even in prayer, to ask Him. Is this the Bible you want me to read?
It is God’s voice, you are searching for, when you read your Bible. It is Gods voice, that you will automatically know, when your Bible is the King James Bible. Can you tell the difference? Even here I challenge you to test the Bibles. Read the King James, for a while. I know the difference. Between Christs voice, and a stranger. And I will not follow a strangers voice. This is not just history, or documentation, it is Gods voice. Gods truth, Gods ways, to show us how to live.
But do you know Gods voice? Are you listening? Are you confused? Only you can answer this.
When you see a prayer, or a commandment, this is God saying, this is what I expect, this is what I want to hear as well. But how do you know whats missing? In my studies, I have found countless scriptures missing. From the other Bible versions. What if it was a word, you needed? God wants your mind, and heart, and yes voice, to be in tune to His voice, and mind, so you can know what is acceptable in His sight.
But if you are reading, any other Bible, it is part truth. It is no longer pure. Yes, I know, the Bible has been transposed, and changed many times, but God has said enough!
I write this, also as a testimony. And I have to be honest here, because it does attest to my belief, that we as Christians should only use the King James Bible. For a few years, in my Christian walk, with Christ, I experienced, a time of confusion. Thoughts would come to me, thoughts of confusion. Thoughts of doubt, thoughts, of fear, thoughts that sometimes, I have to admit, were unholy.
And I wondered, where did that come from? Why was I thinking these thoughts? Should I not, be as a Christian, stronger, able to have a greater peace? What was it? I would try to battle these thoughts on my own accord. But when I discovered two years ago, the discrepancies, from the Bible versions, and I switched Bibles, to read only the King James Bible, my confusion stopped. My thinking took on the mind of Christ. It took on, truth, and faith, and hope, and love, from almighty God.
I have no other explanation, but what the Lord showed me even recently. That people get a spirit of confusion, and this is where the devil blinds them, and they cannot get victories, healings, blessings, etc. because the wording is wrong. But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament: which veil is done away in Christ. II Corinthians 3:14. Only Christ, can show you the truth, by His voice, as you go back to read the old testament, along with the new testament, of the King James Bible.
God can only honor His word. His true word. Jeremiah 1:12 Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten My word to perform it.
This tells me, GOD will, honor His word. When I apply it to a prayer, a need, He keeps his promises. He is not a liar!
But,when people, do not read the King James Bible, they are subject for attack in the mind. The battle is in the mind. Remember, we are searching for Gods spirit. But knowing that carnal hands, have revised Gods word, they have polluted it. How can anyone victoriously win a battle, with a Bible, that has been touched by carnal hands? To be carnally minded, is death, the word of God says. Read Romans 8. But when Gods word, that two-edged sword, is in place, it combats the enemy. Thats the only explanation I have.
Well, in sharing with you, I believe, I also have a remedy, and a solution, a tool, for those who are willing to use Gods Holy word, the King James Bible.
I submit to you now, that there is a tool, for those who need, or long for Hebrew, and Greek translations. There is no Bible out in the market right now, that I have seen, where you can readily go and buy that is the original text, from the Greek and Hebrew translation. But the King James Bible, does have a tool, that can be used, with it. A concordance.
Recently, I found STRONG’S EXHAUSTIVE CONCORDANCE OF THE BIBLE. It has every key word, from the King James Bible for reference. But what makes this particular concordance, book very appealing is that it has updated, Hebrew, and Greek dictionaries, to find the definitions of each word from the original language, to give more depth, for understanding.
But one cannot use any of the Bible versions, but the King James Bible, as a guideline, due again, to the transposing of the words, and the meanings are totally different. I highly recommend it, not only for the Greek and Hebrew dictionary.
I recommend it highly, because we are in a time, where we need to meditate on Gods word, more and more. We need to sharpen our being, our senses, memorizing, and learning Gods word, it is so needed.
Yes, I am careful, as I conclude here, to try myself, to only search for Gods pure word. To be aware of counterfeits, to be aware, that if I want Gods power, in my mind, and in my life, for all my needs, and to be conscious of what Gods will is, I have to discern, and choose wisely, Gods truth.
I must choose it above mans attempt to create Gods word……
I will not compromise, Gods truth, to please anyone. But God is who I must please, and to hear His voice clearly, I just know, that I know, the King James Bible is the Bible, I believe God wants us to use. To know Him, and to know His power, that is available. I share this truth, I believe, but it is up to you.
I am adamant about this. It is not up for debate, or argument. This is what I choose, I am only here to make you think about it, and pray about it. You choose. I do not judge you, but I share this, so you can seek God, to find the truth?
Do you really want to use a Bible, that has been altered, that may give you a spirit of confusion, with part truth, and part lies from the revisions, that is a counterfeit, and is not the voice of God? You can get a new radio. It is called…THE KING JAMES BIBLE.
I highly recommend it.
