I WANT TO BE A SOUL WINNER EVEN FOR THE “LOST” RIGHTEOUS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2277.jpgI want to be a soul winner even for the “lost” righteous.  Does that make sense?  Yea, it does, because there are many who think they are righteous, they think they are saved.  They think their salvation is in tact.  But its not.  They think they have a license to sin.  One needs to repent. 

What they don’t know, is any kind of sin, separates us from God.  

BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE:  NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR:  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 59:1-2.  KJV. 

Lets look at this scripture in more detail. You pray, but you do not get answers.  Why?  We need to all ask ourselves that.  

Look at that second sentence.  It states; But your iniquities have separated between you and your God.  Wow!  That tells me, you gave your heart to Christ, believing you were saved.  But your iniquities have separated you between you and your God.  Your God!  Look at it!  So that tells me, you have sin, on your record.  In the book of life.  

Here, in Exodus 32:33 it tells us:

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

WOW, double Wow!  That book the Lambs book of life, always determines if your name is written in blood, by the blood of Jesus.  If you neglect it, abuse it, treat your salvation shabbily, then yea, your name can be removed.  Blotted out. Look up that key word, in a King James.  (another reason to promote the King James to find truth)

The thing is, and lately, I seem to be in a few of these battles with so called brothers and sisters in Christ, they debate it. They argue it, they bring up other scriptures, that try to contradict the truth, but it can be lost folks.  Salvation can be taken away…..

There is no fear of God.  To many.  We are to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling.  Fear of who?  God Almighty, who holds the keys to heaven and earth.

WHEREFORE, MY BELOVED, AS YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, NOT IN MY PRESENCE ONLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE IN MY ABSENCE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING.  Phillipians 2:12  KJV.

Many, have the misconception, that works don’t cut it.  But it does.  Work it out!  Faith without works is dead.  

FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO.  JAMES 2:26.

A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation or battle with a man, who did not believe he could lose salvation.  He went back and forth, in the conversation.  But what I noticed was that he always made it about him. Or “I” of this, or that.  

And I was trying to get him to see that, yes, salvation could be lost.  But, I believed he was saved now, but he just could not grasp that, the conversation was also about others.  He made it all about him, and thats what the devil did.  Self, I, me, me, me….Thats dangerous, when we cannot see beyond me.

You see, those scriptures above talks about works.  We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling of God.  But we are also commanded, to warn others.  Works, is just telling someone, don’t take your salvation for granted.  

Anyway, after much patience, because this guy was getting on my nerves, he realized, what I was trying to tell him.  That it was not just about him, but about others, who may think their salvation is in tact, but they are lost, they are “Backsliders” and they are in spiritual jeopardy if they die, because they would have unrepented sin.

He finally admitted, and I am paraphrasing his words.  “I was lost, then I was saved, then I was lost, and saved again.  But now I know I am saved.”  

Many, have the misconception, that because they were saved, that it guarantees salvation, even if they sin.  And that is wrong, that is dangerous, and that is really a deception from the devil.  

Look, I can say this as a testimony.  I was saved at an early age.  But I had no sense or value, of how precious my salvation was.  So I sinned.  If I had died, before I repented, I truly believe, I would have lost my salvation.  Once saved is not always saved. 

And its dangerous to believe that, or to influence others that it is safe. 

We are called to warn one another.  Ezekiel 33, and I ask please look at it from a King James.  It tells us, about the righteous.  And if he commits iniquity, all his righteousness, will be forgotten, and he will die.

Die!  We are to have life eternally with Christ.  Christ, died and abolished only the law of sin, and death.

So many have this misconception, that grace will cover it.  That keeping the “law” of God is not necessary.  That is so wrong, if God commands it, or even says it.  It is LAW!  Don’t question it, don’t reason it, don’t ponder on it.  OBEY GODS LAW!

No.  It only covers it, if you repent.  If you have sinned.  Do not misinterpret grace, or Gods goodness. He is not mocked. 

When I was young, I was a soul winner.  I have always tried to be a soul winner, but I believe God is directing me to try and save the righteous, who think they are saved, but are lost, because they do not know King James truth.  They have no fear of God.  They do not repent.  

Its so sad, we have a battle, a big challenge, because so many are misled, misunderstanding, misinterpreting scripture, because they don’t use the truth, and the holiness of a King James bible.  

It makes me sad.  

In Ezekiel 33, that chapter I ask that you read, it tells us to warn people.  

If we do we set ourselves free.  I see it myself, the boldness, God gives me.

And though, my brothers and sisters think I am judging them, that is just a lie from the devil.

I tell them this truth, because I love them because Jesus loves them.  Its not judging.  Its warning.  And warning is love.  Just like Ezekiel 33 tells us to do.  

Just my thoughts, but I want to be a soul winner, for the righteous, who are lost.  

All I know, is if we clear the slate, by even daily repenting, we can ensure our salvation.

THE TRUE LIGHT FROM GOD BRINGS GLADNESS TO GROW ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0049.jpgDon’t you want to grow?  Don’t you want to be glad?  I know I do…. and if we look for the light in Gods Holy King James word, we can see the light.  

Words, they may be skimmed over, or not even taken to heart, if you are in darkness, you might not see them.

But if you take to heart what Christ said, that He is the light of the world, and you let His word, be a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path you could find that light to grow.  

THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET, AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH.  PSALMS 119:105.  KJV.

I AM COME A LIGHT INTO THE WORLD, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON ME SHOULD NOT ABIDE IN DARKNESS.  JOHN 12:46.  KJV. 

I want to use the analogy of a flower, and how it needs light.  Do you notice there are some plants, that thrive on light?  If you put them in a dark place, they won’t grow.  They won’t become the best they can be.  They may even die.  Sadly.  

Well there are instructions, to certain plants so they can grow.  So they can thrive, and bloom, and become beautiful.  To bring beauty, to express who God is, to shine….

Friends, let me just say this, God created, each and every one of us, to shine, for His glory.  We need KJV instruction to grow. 

And if we are allowing darkness, to invade our spirits, whatever that may be.  We will not grow. 

Many people, think I am odd, because as an example, I won’t see certain movies.  I won’t allow that darkness, to enter my “eye-gate.”  

Evil movies, or even movies, that come in the name of the Lord, but they are not based on King James scriptures.  They take the concept of God, and totally distort that.  That brings darkness.  

To me, thats deception, and it comes from the enemy.  To bring darkness.  To confuse, to distort, what Father says, in His King James word.  So I won’t watch them. 

THE LIGHT OF THE BODY IS THE EYE:  IF THEREFORE THINE EYE BE SINGLE, THY WHOLE BODY SHALL BE FULL OF LIGHT.  BUT IF THINE EYE BE EVIL, THY WHOLE BODY SHALL BE FULL OF DARKNESS.  IF THEREFORE THE LIGHT, THAT IS IN THEE BE DARKNESS, HOW GREAT IS THAT DARKNESS!  MATTHEW 6:22-23.  KJV. 

We sometimes, do not realize the ramifications of our compromising, or our allowing of such things in our spirit.  Another reason, why I won’t go to a psychic, or a fortune teller, or read, my horoscope.  For these things bring darkness.  And God totally rejects these entities.  He wants us to be holy.  He wants us to seek Him, and only Him.  Anything that is not of God, is darkness…

We so have to guard our spirits.  We so have to repent, for even doing something that may offend God in this.  For they bring curses.  They bring darkness.  We live in this world, but friends, God has told us not to be a part of it.  

To be a part of it is to be an enemy of God.  

I just want to inspire you to seek light.  Seek truth, seek the good, be the good, be light, as Christ is light.  To others, and for yourself.  

To be glad, that above scripture in that photo, says so much.  But how important is it for us to really sow light?  How important is it for us, to try and be righteous?  How important is it for us, to try and be upright in our hearts?  When I read this, I see light is sown for gladness.  

I so want the joy and gladness, that only God can give?  Don’t you?

Just my thoughts today.  In love, I want to inspire you.  Let us stay away from sin, or anything else that brings darkness.  

This is why, again as well, that I warn you don’t use those corrupted bibles.  For they have been compromised, changed, added to, and deleted.  After God warned us.  They are not light.  They are not holy.  They are part truth, and part lie.  

And if you look at them for light, you may see a counterfeit light.  Seek the true light.  This does affect us, And our discernment, our understanding, our sense of right and wrong, will be diminished if darkness is present.  We must seek the light.  

We must, depart from anything that brings darkness.  Even friends, folks…. there so much to this, concerning, the light….but this is why the world, is lost.  This is why atheists are doomed for hell, because they refuse to see the light.  Don’t be like them.  

THEN JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, YET A LITTLE WHILE IS THE LIGHT WITH YOU.  WALK WHILE YE HAVE THE LIGHT, LEST DARKNESS COME UPON YOU:  FOR HE THAT WALKETH IN DARKNESS KNOWETH NOT WHITHER HE GOETH.  JOHN 12:35.  KJV.  

Much love, Elena Ramirez 

 

 

DO YOU WANT GOD TO BLESS YOU BUT YOU DO NOT BLESS GOD? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


DSC_0015I feel like I am in fifth grade, and I have been given the assignment to explain this:  

Do you want God to bless you, but you do not bless God?  

I have to explain it.  Its on my heart.  It makes me sad for God.  I actually feel the emotion, and the tears, when I think about it.  

Why me to explain it?  I don’t know…. but it does make me think, it makes me want to bless God.  

I guess, because I am older now.  I guess, because I see the error of my ways, in this lifetime of mine.  I see, the wrong turns I took.  I see the sin in my life.  I see, the lack of love, I had in my life time.  I see the lack of guidance I had.  The loneliness, the self-esteem issues I have had.  I see, I reaped what I sowed, so to speak according to scripture.  I see, the gifts and callings I had, like singing, or even my writing….. And I just see, and I have said this before, I see, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train…

But what if?  What if I had the seed planted in me, at an early age, to bless God?  Not just wanting God to bless me, and lets be totally honest, because we want God to bless us, but if I had the desire to bless Him.  Would my life been different?  I don’t know.  But I think it would have.  

If I ever get grand babies, and I pray I do, I hope I can teach them to bless God.  

But I can only concentrate on this moment.  Oh if only, I could plant the seed in you, to plant that seed in others.  So it would grow fruit, and other seeds.  Perhaps that would bless them.  But it would bless God.  

I say that, because I see the world we live in.  I see brothers and sisters in Christ, who are my brethren, but we do not all agree.  I see, so many deceived, by using the per-version, of different bibles, in the versions they choose, that are not King James Bibles.  That are perverted.  

I see the Prosperity messengers, screaming, “holler for a dollar, and name it and claim it.”  But they do not teach first and foremost the salvation message, to get people to see who God is.  To fear God.  To repent even daily, after Salvation.  To make it right with Him, to see Christ as Lord and savior, before they even dare to ask for anything from God.  

I see the lost.  I see the atheists.  I see people hating, and doing deplorable things.  I see the fruit, that is rotten.  

I see things, even in my beautiful America, that are no longer, sacred, holy, or even considered history.  There is hate, among people, races.  Authority is not respected.  Or honored.  Freedom of speech has turned into hate speech.  Life is not honored, and the innocent, babies, that are slaughtered, daily, in the name of choice.  

Yes, I see things, but I know God sees everything.  And how that must grieve Him.  It has to.  These things we see, cannot bless God!

And there is no one, calling out to bless God.  Or at least I don’t hear it.  Maybe you do.  Do you?  I hope so.  I hope, whatever church or religion, you have, has that motto to bless God.  

And I don’t like the word religion when it applies to me, because religion is, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  And I don’t have “a religion”, I believe I have a relationship with my maker.  

My maker.  My creator.  The Lord God, who is worthy of all praise, glory and honor, for who He is.  For all that He has done.  For His mercy, goodness, kindness, and love.  This being, who gave us this earth.  And gives us life.  Good food, and every perfect thing.  

Think about it.  Our lives are meant to glorify Him.  We are created in His image.  He gives us a soul.  A mind, a heart, to choose him, or not.  He is a gentleman.  He never imposes His thoughts on us.  He gives us a choice.  

Who has throughout time, been there, yes silent many times, but my King James Bible has showed me, that He has had relationships with many.  

Beginning with Adam and Eve.  They had no fear of God, or she and he would not have believed the lie from the devil.  And eaten the fruit.  I always say this, but if only they had gone to God, again…. and asked Him.  God would not have lied.  He would have reaffirmed His truth.  He would have told them, the devil is a liar.  Believe me, and only me.  But they did not ask, and they disobeyed.  

And we all somehow or another, reaped that sin, of them, and it is the same thing today.  We do what we want, and we do not ask God.  How sad.  But we can ask Him…. if our motives are right.  If we think before we ask, whats my part in this?  Will this bless God, if I go to Him in prayer first?  Before I do anything.  

No wonder God tells us He lifts the humble and turns from the proud.  

I think its sad, because I know God would want to do more for us, if we had only tried to obey Him.  Our world, would be different, if sin, had not entered in the picture.  

But its not too late, or at least, I see that for me, any way.  I can try and live my life, obedient, to Him.  Whats left of it….To give Him glory and honor.  I don’t want to leave this earth with that as a question.  Is my salvation in tact?  And how to bless God?  

To think about blessing Him, before I even think about asking Him to bless me.  I mean after all, He has done for me in my lifetime, is that too much to ask?  Bless God….

Friends, I truly hope you take this to heart.  I could write a book on it.  As I could on so many things God has placed on my heart.  But at this point in my life, I think I just need to focus on blessing Him, and in little things.  A little photo, that I share, a little inspiration, that I call “just my thoughts”...a little prayer for somebody, and just a little chat, as I come to His throne….to tell Him thank you Father.  But always acknowledging Him.  Never ashamed.  How can any of us be ashamed, when He does so much for us?  

Thankful for the miracles. That I can say look what God has done for me.   Every thing He has provided…..

You know…. 

The enemy has blinded so many of us.  Even in our silence….where people do not say anything, even with courage, to acknowledge God.  Cowardly, they do not stand for right. They have no David in them I think…. To go after the Goliath.  

And then….Again with Bibles that are not holy.  Where words are distorted, corrupted, no longer holy.  Where the majesty of God is undermined, in these phony words.  And, in stealing that praise that God so deserves.  By even denying His existence.  By changing His Holy word.  How insulting.  And even worse, you know this truth, but you do nothing.  

But let me tell you a little about the God I know.  Though He is love….He is not mocked.  And He keeps His Holy word.  That I call KJV word.  I know His ways are excellence.  I know prophetic words will come true.  Christ will return.  Christ will come for His own.  And the world, will reap what it sows.  The devil, and all his “accusers” will be sent to hell, and hell is a tormenting place.  The wrath of God will be known.  And many will regret their denial of Him.  Because He cannot be denied.  

If I could plead with you, I would tell you even in this analogy.  Repent.  Get right with God quick!  Use a King James Bible.  Throw those corrupted bibles away.  Part truth, part lie.  

Because we never know.  Throw away pride.  Get hungry and thirsty for righteousness.  Acknowledge God, in all your ways, and He will direct your paths.  Be obedient, not only for your sake, but your family, your loved ones, but more for Him.  

BLESS GOD!

That would bless God.  That would give the devil a black eye.  

Develop your relationship with Him…..  

Its so sweet to know Him.  Jesus, is the perfect example of love.  And I pray, never to take for granted what He did for me on that cross.  His suffering, pain, agony, and by His stripes we are healed.  That means spiritually and physically.  

I could never ever, repay Him for that.  I could not.  I know who I am, and I know how weak I have been.  In so many ways…. it makes me sad.  I did not bless God growing up… but I am so grateful at this moment.  

That I just want to thank Him for everything.  I just want to bless God.  I am not super Christian, I am not trying to puff myself up.  By even writing this.  

But, I will say this….You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am, or what I have gone through.  That even brings me this to write this.  How dare anybody mock someones faith?  With or with out knowing.  

But He does know, and it so humbles me, that pride that characteristic of self is evil.  Its comes from the enemy.  And it has shown me the danger, that I know that is a characteristic of the enemy.  

I want nothing to do with the enemy.  I renounce him, even as I write…..

But I love Jesus, and I thank my God the father, by the Holy spirit….

I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But I want to bless God.  I hope you do too.  

Much love, Elena Ramirez

DO YOU STEAL YOUR OWN BLESSINGS? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3150.jpgI prayed about this dream that I had.  I won’t give the details but. …. I felt like the Lord, was telling me, we can steal our own blessings.  By the things we do.  So it made me think, even to write this.  

Because if I can help you see, I know I am helping myself as well.  It reinforces us, as the body of Christ….But if there is something we are doing that is stealing our own blessings, we need to recognize it.  I want to.  To obey God.  So it made me think….

By the short cuts we take.  By cutting corners, in even not give God praise, or thanks.  Where we are silent, when we should be shouting to the rafters who we are in Christ. By maybe even taking advantage of a situation…. hmm. 

Today, we went and had a breakfast, after losing something.  And we found it.  But not after prayer.  This thing was lost.  Where it was found, it had been searched in that same place, five times.  Yet it was missed.  But I prayed, and I prayed hard.

When I prayed today, there was a break through.  It was as if, I knew, that I knew God heard me.  And it was as if God was telling me, for the big thing I want, I need to press in like that, for a little thing.  Pray with faith…. not just words. 

Well, we went to eat breakfast out.  We ordered.  Hubby, during our breakfast, wanted a cup of coffee.  We tried to get our waitresses, attention, but she did not see.  So I flagged down the bus boy.  He got the coffee.  When she came back, we told her, but she did not add it to our bill.  So when we went up to the register, we told the cashier, and she was so impressed, she said its good to be honest.  

I told her; “We don’t want to lose our own blessings.  And it dawned on me, we can lose our own blessings, we can “steal” from ourselves!  My dream was prophetic….

And so if we do, if we even give the enemy an inch, and call that a blessing, but if it is, by wrong doing….that is wrong in the sight of the Lord.

Yesterday, someone asked for prayer.  I felt the Holy spirit tell me, give this scripture, and make sure, they know its to be claimed from a KJV for the holiness, and anointing.

A couple of people responded, and one said, whats the difference, they are all the same.  I explained, that they are not.  I explained, that God has given many scriptures, not to change, add, or delete scripture.  

Then one other person, who wanted to argue, told me, that what we are doubting who God is, and His power, by merely a bible version.  He said, we are to trust the Holy spirit.  To lead us.  

I told him, he could use whatever version he wanted.  But, how could the Holy spirit, be in a lie?  How can that be Holy?  How can that be God leading us?…..When these versions, have been corrupted, when they disobeyed God, by changing them?

Well the lady who was a friend on that post, deleted my comment.  And it ticked me off.  Not because I wanted to argue or debate it, but these are the words from God not me.  I had given Deuteronomy 4:2, and Revelation 22:18-19.  She deleted Gods word.  That ticked me off.

And so, I found this scripture below, because I needed a word.  

I believe in truth, but I asked God to help me maintain my peace in this matter.  This person, was now arguing with the Holy spirit not me.  So I was released.  But I did unfriend her, without even arguing about it. 

BUT THEY MOCKED THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, AND DESPISED HIS WORDS, AND MISUSED HIS PROPHETS, UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD AROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, TILL THERE WAS NO REMEDY.  II CHRONICLES 36:16.  KJV.  

Friends, I just feel like not only can we steal from ourselves.  But if we think God is silent, in a matter, and perhaps we do not see His correction, we can think we are getting away with something.  There will be a time, the wrath of God will be revealed.  Look at that scripture again…..

When in truth, as well, we are “stealing” from ourselves.  

Many of you know how I feel about this, when it comes to only using a King James bible.  And you mock me. You don’t believe me.  It goes in one ear and out the other.  You don’t even respond any more.  

These are His words, that you are despising, if you do not obey God, by only using a KJV.  

But I am not argue about it.  Like I did not argue with that lady. It felt good, to just say, Lord you take care of it.  But I don’t want to be unequally yoked with darkness.  

Look all I can say, and you can judge yourself.  Do you steal your own blessings?  Is there a reason, your answer is not coming through?  If you are believing half truths, and half lies from a corrupt Bible…..

Isn’t that stealing from yourself?

Just a thought,

Elena Ramirez 

 

HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2616HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD….

I want you to see yourself happy with a vision from God.

And sometimes, we just have to see what King James word says.

You know, so many teachings, have perverted what Paul said, that we are not to keep the law. That grace covers it.

And it has bothered me from time, to time, because there are so many scriptures that tell us to keep the “law.”

This particular scripture tells us if we want to be happy, we have to keep the law. Look it up, from a King James. Proverbs 29:18.

See yourself happy, as the vision. Claim it in Jesus name….

And take the commandments, to heart, try to obey them.

Repent, if you know you have not. Including just believing the lie, that we are not to keep the law.

WHAT IS A LOST SOUL? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3403.jpg

What is a lost soul?   Hmm…. You know, as a seasoned Christian, I think I can identify it, by my own life.  I can say, I have been lost.  

I have been found.  By Christ. But, I have and had my part in this matter as well.  

I WILL SEEK THAT WHICH WAS LOST, AND BRING AGAIN THAT WHICH WAS DRIVEN AWAY, AND WILL BIND UP THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN, AND WILL STRENGTHEN THAT WHICH WAS SICK; BUT I WILL DESTROY THE FAT AND THE STRONG:  I WILL FEED THEM WITH JUDGMENT.  EZEKIEL 34:16.  KJV.  

A lost soul, is someone who has lost their way, because they are not seeking Christ.  Urgently, and in a relationship.  Not religion.  Please do not confuse religion, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  

I am talking about a moment to moment relationship, and a prayer life, that is constant with Christ.  Seeking truth, from your King James bibles.  I am talking about someone who has seen the error of their ways, and made Christ their Lord and savior.  They believe.  But not only do they believe, they actively pursue Christ.  

And even if you are a Christian, you can get lost, we all can get lost from time to time.  

And the thing is, that there is an enemy, who only wants to deceive, and lead you away from Christ.  The enemy does not want you to seek the light.  

The enemy does not want you to seek truth, seek the way, the truth, and the life in Christ.  (John 14:6 KJV) The enemy, wants a soul to be lost.  This is where the enemy wants to lure you into his kingdom of darkness, and that is to be eternally lost.  

I feel the urgency lately, to first to speak to my brothers and sisters in Christ, to implore you to guard your salvation.  Cherish it.  Remember what Christ did on the cross for you. Be humble, be love, forget about the pride, throw away those things that corrupt the inner person.  Do not lose your way.  DO NOT GET LOST! Be repentant daily….

Remember the way, is narrow…

ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIGHT GATE FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT:  BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT.  MATTHEW 7:13-14.  KJV. 

Do you see that last sentence from my King James Bible?  It says that there are few that find it.  Few….  Are you one of those few, who may not find it, because you are lost?

Friend, only you can determine where you are with Christ.  Only you know where you have been?  Spiritually, in the light or darkness?  We can lose our moral compass, and get lost.

But I implore you, if you have first not made Christ your Lord, and savior, you are in darkness.  This is not a joke.  This is something, I hope you read, and take to heart.  

Because the bottom line is, there is a line, we can cross into light or darkness.  And you do not want to play with your salvation.  You do not want to lose it, and you do not want to lose a chance to gain, eternal security with Christ.   Why do I say this, because again, I have had spiritual battles, where the enemy wants to deceive me.  

A little history, here, as a testimony.  I accepted Christ as Lord and savior, when I was young.  But, I got “Lost” I played with my salvation.  When I got older, I sinned, I wanted the ways of the world.  I hit the bottom of the barrel so to speak, and not every body may do that, but I thank God I did, because it did teach me to value my salvation.  

It taught me to seek Christ, whole heartily, and with every ounce of my being.  Because I was a “backslider”  I truly believe, if I had died, during that time, before, hell would have been my destination.  I would have lost my salvation.  

So do not argue with a soul, who has been there, done that.  I know.  Salvation can be lost.  But I seek to always obey God.  By His commandments.  Do you?  

I HAVE GONE ASTRAY LIKE A LOST SHEEP; SEEK THY SERVANT: FOR I DO NOT FORGET THY COMANDMENTS.  PSALM 119:176.  KJV.  

Some people do not hit hard, like I did.  Not all people are the same, not all experiences are the same.  But the deception is, you may think life is fine and dandy, but you are lost.  You may have everything going for you, but you are “lost.”  Friend, I implore you, whether you accepted Christ as Lord and savior, or not, do not lose your way.  Do not play with your salvation.  

Now the deception is this, that comes from the enemy.  He wants you to think once saved is always saved.  But its not.  Because sin, separates us from God.  This is King James scriptural.  Look up that scripture.  In a King James Bible.  Without repentance, that sin, will separate you from heaven, when you leave this earth.  

The enemy also wants to deceive you by the Bible you use, so use a King James, it is holy and anointed.  Friend, the deception is in the changing of the words, and they are not Gods words, they are words that come from hell itself.  I have made the comparisons I know.  

I implore you, if you are lost, repent.  Repent, and acknowledge to God your sins.  Your pride.  Your short comings.  Yes, because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. You see, we just don’t know when we are going to leave this earth.  Obedience to God is so important.  

And I just know, for, I just see the deception.  I see, the “lost” world we live in.  

I see Pastors, and Christians, that are in “la-la land”.  They really are not aware, nor do they care for those who do not know truth, and they are not seeking the “lost” as Christ called us to do.  They are silent.  They do not have the urgency to bring people to the light.  They do not witness, to others.  They do not warn others.  The enemy has done a number on so many, because they do not want to judge.  

Quit confusing judging with warning a soul!  We are called to judge righteously.  And we are called to warn. See Ezekiel 33.  

And if you are not sharing the gospel, trying to win a soul, you may be lost yourself.  

Yes, think about that….. 

BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST; IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM.  FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD, AND OURSELVES YOUR SERVANTS FOR JESUS SAKE.  FOR GOD WHO COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS, HATH SHINED IN OUR HEARTS, TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST.  

II CORINTHIANS 4:3-6.  KJV.

We must reach out to the lost.  We must make sure we do not get lost ourselves.  We must beware of the enemies antics.  For he does come to kill, steal, and destroy.  We must be totally submitted to God in fear of God, for the bottom line is, he is the one who determines whether or not we can enter into His kingdom.  Yes fear God.  

Friends, only you can ask yourself this?  

Are you a lost soul?

DONT REJECT CHRISTIANITY NOT ALL CHRISTIANS ARE FLAKES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0001I feel led to write this.  Perhaps, because I am a seasoned Christian now.  I know, when people read my writings, or they meet me, they may see my light shine.  

It may take a moment or two, because I am reserved in some ways, but if they want to get to know me, or be a friend, they will soon find out I am a Christian.

But not one size fits all, if I could use that as an analogy.   We are all different.  We don’t all believe the same, which is sad, but even I meet Christians, who do not agree with me, or what my King James Bible says.

And I guess, that just comes with the territory.  I guess, I could blame that on different Bible versions, as to why we are not all on the same page with God.  Or I could blame that on religion.  Rules, regulations, rituals and traditions, that are made by men, and groups.

And I think its sad, that we are not all agreeing with what God expects.  Because there are scriptures, that tell it like it is, and people do not know what it says, but they heard something, from a pastor, or in passing, and they think they have the answer.  

But I truly believe in the King James Bible, for that. It is still holy, and anointed, and not corrupted.  I have said, that the King James Bible is like a puzzle sometimes, the answers are here there, and throughout that book.  

I have met a lot of different Christians in my lifetime.  Some, that are flaky, and just say they are a Christian by name. But they don’t seem to have any true substance.  Then, I have met some, who are knowledgeable, yet they get puffed up, and hit people on the head with the bible.  This could be a turn off to some.  

Turning people off, about God, that is just wrong, in the sight of God.  We have a responsibility, to speak truth, but not to distort it.  We will be accountable for the souls, we bring to the Kingdom of God, or turn away.  

I want you to think about that.  

I have had to be really careful with that.  Because I am knowledgeable, but, I remember, what Christ said.  

That we would be known by the Love.  That should be the first thing you should see in a true Christian.  A love, thats in their eyes, a love, that is compassionate, kind, considerate, not jealous, or competitive, but just something about them, that shows that Christ is their Lord and savior.  No matter what they look like, or their status is in life, there is that love….

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  John 13:35.  KJV.

If I see the love, then I am more apt to be patient with someone, even if they do not agree with me.  But I have to make sure they see, my love, as well.

We are all on the vine, with Christ, so to speak at different levels.  He is the vine, we are the branches.  One may be seasoned, but the other may not be.  And so, there is always that chance, that there will be a difference of opinion.

The thing is though, Christianity, has taken a bad rap in many ways.  I have heard it to be called a religion of hate.  Yet, Christ was very clear about loving God, and loving one another.  It has to be seen.

I myself, have been turned off by those who have come in the name of the Lord, but they were wolves in sheeps clothing.  And they have no mercy.  Nor love.  They also have a Pharisee spirit, and they rule by the law.

Then there are those, who have a Pharisee spirit, but they reject the law.  And believe by grace only.  Those are flaky, pharisee spirits to me.  Because scripture is very clear, that Christ did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

Being a Christian, will make you different.  But its a process, and a growth, and you cannot expect to have discernment, or spiritual gifts and callings, until you grow, and know holy word, and pray.  By first of all being obedient to God, and yes, His laws.  And fearing Him.  I am not playing with words, fear God.  

Scripture says, we are different.  In fact, it says, we can be peculiar, if you are reading this from a King James version.  Lord, only knows what it says in other Bible versions.  

BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE; THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HATH CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT: WHICH IN TIME PAST WERE NOT A PEOPLE, BUT ARE NOW THE PEOPLE OF GOD:  WHICH HAD NOT OBTAINED MERCY, BUT NOW HAVE OBTAINED MERCY.  I PETER 2:9-10.  KJV.

To get to the point, of my writing, I implore you don’t give up on God, by some of the peculiar Christians you have met, who are flaky to you.  Where it may seem what they do, is crazy.  Or that they even believe.  Yes, there are some nutty Christians.  Sad to say.  But there are also some, who desire truth, in the inner parts of their soul, and they search for God, and they find Him.  

For me, it began by seeing I was a sinner.  That we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.  I came to a place, where I hit the bottom of the barrel, and I repented, and in fact, repent daily….. letting go of pride. I gave my life to Christ, because He truly did save me.  But you don’t see the fruit of that, until you come to that place where you give in to God.  We can get the mind of Christ…. by the Holy Spirit.  

Even though I know God, I am careful not to get puffed up, with pride, or to make myself look better then anyone.  I believe in the Love Christ told us about.

I don’t come from a place, “where its name it or claim it.”  Or where, I believe God is an ATM.  “To holler for a dollar.”  That must be so insulting to Him.  Yet many have a distorted, view of who God, and is not.  

Open your heart, and let God speak to you.  Again, I recommend a King James bible, for it is holy, and anointed.  And yes, be careful of the Christians you meet.  But be careful of all people.  We are to test the spirits. 

If you are truly praying, and knowledgeable, about what Gods word says, you will try, and test the spirits.  The Holy Spirit, will show you. 

Thats all I can say for now, till I write again.  But don’t reject the relationship, you can have in Christ.  Thats your responsibility, not others.  You have to work at it.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ, 

Elena Ramirez
