SIN IS A DIRTY SPIRIT YOU ALLOW INTO YOUR SOUL, LIFE, AND BODY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0061I feel led to talk about sin, right now.  One does not hear much about it any more.  

Even from the pulpit, sadly.  It will pollute you.  

But I feel led to write about it, because many even in the body of Christ, think you are judging them, if you bring it up.  They get angry, indignant, they think you are judging them.  

Yet, according to Ezekiel 33, from my King James Bible, it says, we are called to warn, and warn, even the “righteous.”  

When I read that word, righteous, I assume it to mean, a Christian, who thinks they are saved, but they are allowing sin, into their life, their soul, and physical body.  

God tells us to be Holy, for He is holy.  And sometimes, I just shake my head, because I see many think their salvation, is a license to sin, and thats just plain wrong.  

FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD:  YE SHALL THEREFORE SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, AND YE SHALL BE HOLY; FOR I AM HOLY: NEITHER SHALL YE DEFILE YOURSELVES WITH ANY MANNER OF CREEPING THING THAT CREEPETH UPON THE EARTH.  Leviticus 11:44.  KJV. 

Beware of sinful creeps.  Just saying…. 

Folks, in our King James bibles, it tells us, God will not hear us, if sin is there.  And again, I emphasize get a King James bible, that is holy, and not corrupt.  You won’t get the truth, the anointing, the holiness from a bible that is corrupted.  So get a King James bible.  

But just know, any kind of sin, will hurt us.  And thats the part, that grieves me, to know, sin separates us from Him.  From His sweet fellowship, His counsel, His love, and friendship, if we choose to sin.  

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   KJV.  

Have you ever tried to worship God, but worship does not come out of your spirit?  You feel cold, you feel numb?  Remember God is a spirit, and those that worship Him, worship Him in spirit and truth.  If you have so much sin, in you that “pollutes” your spirit, your faith will be off, and so will your worship.  I wrote “How To Have Faith.”

I learned these principles, that I write about in my book, because I know there are differences.  And sin, will stop it all, sin, will blind you, sin will make you have a “dirty” spirit.  Check yourself, do you allow sin, that pollutes you?   

I have grown enough, to know that I want no sin in my life.  See, we reap what we sow.  And spiritually, those sins, when un-repented.  Dirty our spirits. They dirty our souls, they dirty our physical bodies, and our minds.  Think about those who sin, and how filthy their minds are.  You don’t want that, you don’t want to reap sin, in your life, you don’t want anything that separates you from God.  

I could write a long list, of what sin does, because it comes from the enemy, and it is meant, to kill, steal, and destroy the life God has given you.  Thats the enemies goal.  And if the enemy, can take your crown, before Salvation, he will tempt you.    But if you give your heart to Christ, and repent, truly, and (I recommend daily repentance) you can see yourself change, and grow more to His image.   You can run from temptation.  

When I say they actually dirty the body.  Think about sexual diseases.  Think about diseases that cause cancer, or destroy parts of the body.  Smoking, drinking, drugs, open doors to illnesses, that one will reap, if they pursue that.  We need to teach this to our youth.  

So when I see a Christian open a door, and suggest its o.k. to drink or take drugs, they are not seeing how it can hurt someone, even others, who reap that.  They are contributing to sin, and a Christian, should never do that.  

I suppose this is why I pray, even now, to not be a part of those things, because I see, how all of these things led to my own brokenness, and because of sin.  I reaped much of that.  Yet, I was pruned by Christ.  Whom He Loves He corrects.  And believe me, He corrected me.  And His correction is not always pleasant.  See, God is not mocked.  But I reaped what I sowed.  

And I am bearing fruit for Him now, because I see the error of my ways.  I repented, and I still do.  Even when I think of my sins.  One can have a new beginning, even where you are.  Even if you are old.  

Even if you are taking your last breath, because then, at least you are promised eternity.  But you cannot have it, if sin is there, or its un-repented.  

I am not holier then thou.  I say all of this to you, with a very humble heart.  I know where I came from.  I know what I was delivered from.  I know, where I have been.  So when I tell you this, I don’t tell you to judge you.  Because as the scripture says, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. I know this, it grieves me to know I sinned.  To know, I had such poor judgment, especially in my youth.  I made mistakes that were sins, that haunt me for the rest of my life.  But when the devil does that, I remind him, NOW who I am in Christ. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ.  Read Romans 8:1  King James. 

Yet…. I know, I am not worthy on my own.  But only by the blood of Jesus.  That cleansed me.  But when you see what He did on the cross for you, when you see, who you were, and now changed, it does make you see, one should not play with their salvation.  Your salvation, is not a license to sin.  

But just know this, even though it may feel like judging, its warning.  And we are called to even warn the righteous.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James, over and over again.  Because the righteous, could mean someone who thinks they are saved.  

And I see so many in the body of Christ, play with it, they do not fear God, or work it out, with fear and trembling.  And I don’t care what folks say, about works.  But faith without works is dead.  You need to work it out.  You don’t take it for granted.

EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD, BEING ALONE.  JAMES 2:17  KJV.

Let me just say this, and try and make this somewhat short and sweet.  Sin, stops your blessings, the blessings God intends for you.  Sin, clouds your mind, distorts truth, and will actually blind you.  You will believe the delusion.  And many in the body of Christ, even now, are delusional.  

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE.  II THESSALONIANS 2:11 KJV.  

And this is hard to understand in some cases.  But…one can reap sickness, or illness, if you continue in sin, and don’t repent.  Don’t think you won’t, one will.  This is why Christ, took those stripes, and by His stripes we are healed.  He took the penalty, of our sins.   See sin, brings curses, and thats another thing, you want to avoid, with all your being.  There are many different curses.  If you want to read my book on this, go to this link.  You can order it on line, on Smashwords.  There both of my books can be ordered on line.

All I can say, is repent, even daily, keep your robes white, keep oil in your lamp, live for Christ, get a good King James bible, pray.  And stay away from sin, stay away from the enemy.

Submit to God, resist the enemy, and he will flee.  Your job, is to stay close to God, stay away from sin, and live the best life you can with your salvation in tact.  

I hope this helps someone.  

Blessings, and love in Christ,

WHEN YOU SIN IT HURTS GODS FEELINGS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2I had a thought, earlier, as I was watering my garden.  And I thought, how good God is.  How wonderful is all of His creation.  How thoughtful, kind, considerate, and beautiful with love, are His thoughts toward us.  

But sin, hurts Gods feelings…. when we sin.  

O LORD, HOW GREAT ARE THY WORKS! AND THY THOUGHTS ARE VERY DEEP.  Psalms 92:5  KJV.

And I was thinking, yes, He is silent many times.  He hides himself from us, sometimes, so we will search for Him.  And I am sure he does think about what we do.  

AND HE SAID, I WILL HIDE MY FACE FROM THEM, I WILL SEE WHAT THEIR END SHALL BE:  FOR THEY ARE A VERY FROWARD GENERATION, CHILDREN IN WHOM IS NO FAITH.  DEUTERONOMY 32:20.  KJV.  

Do you see that last part of that verse, God is telling us, there are some who have no faith.  And this is why He hides himself from us.  

As many of you know, I wrote the book, “How To Have Faith.”  Because there was a time, I struggled, and I learned there are principles, in pleasing God, and I have to admit, I learned the hard way.  

But I am glad I did, and I sometimes still trip, and miss it, that is why I always recommend “daily repenting”, and using a King James Bible.   So you will hear His voice, and not another.  So you can be on the same page with God.  Not using a corrupted word.  

But….

As I was thinking this morning, it grieved me for God, that many of us, yes, say we believe in God, but we act like the world.  We continue in sin.  And it made me think, how it must grieve God, how sad, he must be, because we are his children, but many of us do not know truth, that will set us free.  

In fact, I was talking to a man on social media, just the other day, and he could not see how sin separates us from God.  He believed, that once he accepted Christ as Lord and savior, that was it, it was a done deal.  In fact, I see that a lot from many Christians, and they think they are saved.  Yet, they sin.  They think they have a license to sin, because they accepted Christ.  They don’t see the danger.  They don’t see, that un-repented, sin, will cause someone to lose their salvation.  And many don’t, but there are scriptures there that do warn.  It can be lost.  But he did not see this.  Even here, read Ezekiel 33, and Revelation 22:18-19 also warns it for those who do not obey God in using corrupted word.  

I tried to warn him about the benefits of daily repentance, but he snubbed me, and actually told me I was not worth talking to.  Hmm.  The next day, the Lord told me I was worth it, and reminded me, I was His daughter, and an ambassador for Christ.  And to continue to walk in love….And Father gave me this verse.  

BUT FOOLISH AND UNLEARNED QUESTIONS AVOID, KNOWING THAT THEY DO GENDER STRIFES.  AND THE SERVANT OF THE LORD MUST NOT STRIVE; BUT BE GENTLE UNTO ALL MEN, APT TO TEACH, PATIENT, IN MEEKNESS INSTRUCTING THOSE THAT OPPOSE THEMSELVES; IF GOD PERADVENTURE WILL GIVE THEM REPENTANCE TO THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH; AND THAT THEY MAY RECOVER THEMSELVES OUT OF THE SNARE OF THE DEVIL, WHO ARE TAKEN CAPTIVE BY HIM AT HIS WILL.  II Timothy 2:23-26  KJV. 

Anyway….This particular individual, knew some scripture, and “picked and chose” what he wanted from the Bible, but He did not rightly divide the word, of truth, as II Timothy 2:15 KJV tells us. And I believe, if he does not see the error of his ways, he will be ashamed, when he stands before God.  And perhaps will not make it to the Kingdom of God.  Heaven. 

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.  KJV.  

Theres that word again, “Hid” and I thought, Lord, don’t hide from me.  Forgive me.  

I do believe repentance over and over is good, it proves to God, we are serious.  And I believe in daily repentance, because we can miss it. It proves to ourselves, when we sin, and we are sad, humble, throwing away our pride, totally remorseful, for “hurting him” because we sinned, that we know, only His mercy, can free us.  It is not a license to sin.  Remember, Christ told us, even our thoughts can be sin.  

Every stripe He stood, and took for our healing spiritually and physically hurt Him, physically as well as spiritually.  Read Isaiah 53:5  King James.  

BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES:  THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM: AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  

And we are going to take that for granted?  Shame on any of us, that would deliberately sin, and not take note, how that hurts Him for us.  That we would shabbily take our salvation for granted.  

Just knowing that for me, wants to be more considerate, polite, respectful, and honorable to Him.  With love.  To depart from sin.  To want to please Him. To serve Him, with all my heart soul, and might.  To not treat Him like an ATM.  Or just come to Him, when I need something.  How rude that must seem to be to Him.  Lord, forgive me.  

I guess, thats why I came to the thought, that it must hurt His feelings.  After all, think of all that He has done for us, from the beginning.  How it must have grieved Him, that Adam and Eve sinned.  If only they had gone to Him, and asked Him again, after the devil made it a question.  

…..YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1.  KJV.  

See the devil was testing her, and she did not know truth.  To even have “faith” in what God said, and she sinned, as did Adam, by eating the fruit. 

God was testing them both as well.  And when they disobeyed, that sin separated them from God, and they were cast out of the garden of eden.  God did get angry.  

Don’t think there will not be a wrath for the sins, one does.  Why else, do you think its healthy to have the fear of God, as we are commanded?   I don’t question Gods King James word.  I don’t read something, and question who He is, or His motives, in how He dealt with people.  Or why?  I do this because I see, I need to fear God.   

But many don’t fear God, and its not taught.

Anyway, my friends, you have to dig deeper into Gods King James word.  You have to have fear of God.  You have to pray, you have to walk in love, and you have to try and keep Gods law, and many do not keep the law.  Another deception from the enemy.  But if you search Gods holy word, to understand, then you will start gaining wisdom.  In these matters.  

But first understand, if you truly love God, you don’t want to hurt His feelings.  For many reasons.  You don’t want Him to hide His face from you.  You don’t want to lose the blessings.  You don’t want to make yourself, your own enemy.  You don’t want to reap what you sowed.  You don’t want Gods wrath.  

I think of Judas.  He could have gone to the cross, after He sinned, and betrayed Christ.  He was a disciple.  For all intents and purposes, it looked like he had salvation.  But betrayal to Christ, was a sin.  Do you think he made it to heaven, for not repenting?  NO!

But instead, his sin, caused him to hang himself.  Thats what the devil wants all of us to do.  And un-repented sin, does hang it on themselves.  If only he had taken that sin, to the cross, what a story of redemption that would have been.  

Friends, I hope this helps you to see, if you love God, if you truly care, remember, He created you in His image.  He gave you feelings.  He gave you a conscience.  If you are not seeing the danger of sin.  If you are not seeing, what He has done for you to free you from sin.  You are living a lie.  And where does that come from?

It does grieve Him, but when anybody is hurt, think about it, after a while, the hurt turns to anger, and there are sometimes a price to pay.   We reap what we sow.  I know I have. 

Why pay it, when Christ paid it for you?

Yes, it grieves Him it makes Him sad when we sin.  

REPENTING DAILY CAN MAKE YOU MINDFUL OF THIS…..

I THOUGHT IT GOOD TO SHEW THE SIGNS AND WONDERS THAT THE HIGH GOD HATH WROUGHT TOWARD ME.  DANIEL 4:2  KJV.

SOMETIMES THERE ARE NO SECOND CHANCES WITH GOD AND PEOPLE… ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1485.jpgSometimes, there are no second chances with God, and people.  As I write this, I sense a bit of anger.  And so I want to be careful with this.  For the glory of God.  

I just see it so clearly right now.  I just see, how life, the life God gives to us, should not be wasted.  I have wasted life.  In so many ways.  I did not know better.  But, maybe, what I can share with you, may bring insight.

And its not over, till God says its over.  But when it is over, there are no second chances, folks, with God or with people.  

Sometimes we just have to see it, and grasp the moment.  For some, I pray, you grasp this.  

For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.  Proverbs 4:2.  King James….  

See God is giving us good doctrine, to guide us, to teach us, to instruct us, and show us who He is.  That I see as King James word, but some folks, waste their time, using corrupt doctrine, and they forsake HIS laws, that tell us don’t change His word.  Because it is holy word.  And corrupt word, does not have the same affect or anointing.  

Or if one gets lazy, and does not seek God, what does that say?  Thats pride.  Thats saying, I can do it on my own. Thats just wrong.  

The world, has denied God, so are we going to go with the world?  I hope not.  See the enemy of God, wants you to miss it.  And there are lots of ways, the enemy distracts us.  Get close to God, so you get another chance.      

But you have to see, what kind of relationship do you have with God.  Are you working on it, with prayer, with love, with fear of God?

Or….If the indication, is there by the way we treat people, what does that say, about the way we treat God?

If we are not loyal to God, in obedience, love, respect, honor, yes fear of God, how can we have these attributes toward others?

I do get angry, when I see Christian leaders, treat God like an ATM.  With their phony prosperity message, that does not call out for the lost.  That does not treat salvation as a priority for this lost world.  I do get angry, when people are misled, by using unholy, corrupted Bibles.  I do get angry, when I see, how the devil has deceived so many.  

But I cannot turn that anger, into hate.  I cannot, be destructive.  I must seek the peace of God, that surpasses understanding.  But I still see the corruption.  So, I am at a place, where I am being quiet, and trying to hear Gods voice.  But I have my part.  In fear of God.  It makes me see, though…. that  we have to do something, we have to do our part.  Why do I care?    

Why?  Because I see the difference.  Been there, done that.  I see, my own mistakes.  I see, my own faults.  I see….  And sadly as well… I see….our lost world.     

Because people don’t have fear of God, or what He commands us.  And those chances, my friend, are dwindling.  Life is not forever on earth!

WAKE UP!

All I can do, is use my own life, as the reference.  And when I see, yes, the many mistakes I made in life, and even in my Christian life.  I grieve!  Yes, I grieve.  For not seeing it….

I pray, there is more time for me, to serve God.  I pray to make it up to Him.  I pray, to be fulfilled…. I pray, to make it right with Him, and others.  But I have to see my own mistakes, by His grace, and correct them, while there is time on this earth.

To grow, to fulfill my calling in Him.  He has brought me to a place, even right now, where yes, I fear God.  Because I see how fragile, I can be.  

Recently, I have been challenged in a few things, some that I will not elaborate here, but I am challenged, but when your health is off, and you know it, you know, that yes, you could leave this earth.  

So, what do you do?  

You try and get right with God, is my thought.  Because someday, I will, and you will, stand before Him.  

I read, a tweet, on Jim Caviezels page, that said something to the affect, “Live life, like its your last day on earth.”

So, my thought was, if thats the case, then I better live, my life, repenting daily.  Walking in fear of God daily, trying to walk in love with people, daily.  Trying to Love God with all I got. I am not perfect.  I have my faults.  

But I notice, I can extend grace to some, but they don’t extend it back to me.  And I have noticed, yes, I have asked God for this, and that, but He does not always give me what I ask.  Believe me, there are many lost dreams, I have had.

But, I am not going to deny God.  I am not going to reject Him, just because He does not give me what I want.  Because God has given me grace, my whole life through…

But people, will deny God, and others…..

People, so prideful, so mean spirited, get these attitudes, that treat life, and others shabbily.  Just because they don’t get their way with people, and with God, and thats wrong.  

See, I do have a history.  And when I look at that history, I realize, all the good things God has done for me.  I realize, I have missed it so many times.  With Him, and with people.  

My own personal relationships, I admit, in some, I have missed it.  Right now, I may have a couple of friends, but sometimes, I see, its only friendship, when I please them.  But if I don’t please them, they are gone….. 

Do I treat God like that?  I pray not.  I have my immediate family, who I cherish.  Who I thank God for.  But when I look at the past, and I see, my own broken family and who they were, and the chances they also had, with me, as I was growing up.  

I pray, to break curses, or  cycles, where, people I loved were only there for a moment.  In the good, and the bad, and when they left, there were no second chances.  No matter how much I longed for that, I did not get those chances. 

So what has all of this taught me, as I vent here?  That friends, God is teaching us, reaching out to us, through this journey called life.  But you can’t stay stuck.  You gotta grow.  You have to change, to be fulfilled.  

Stop looking at God, as an ATM.  Stop looking at Him, as if He has to do something, but you don’t think what can I do, to please Him, or serve Him.  This is where the growth stops, if you don’t try and please Him.  

Stop thinking about self.  Self, is just another indicator of who the enemy is.  See, we can get so preoccupied, with self, in that spirit, that we miss our own callings.  

We miss, how God can use us.  We miss, love.  See chances, are given, but if we misuse them, abuse them, abuse God, and others, we fail.  

I pray, to share this, with love, but yes again, I am kind of angry.  But it makes me realize, every day is a gift from God.  And my gift in return to Him, is what I do with it.  

See, His sacrifice for me on that cross was too great.  I cannot abuse it, by going back to sin.  I cannot abuse it, by not fearing the consequences of reaping what I sow.  I cannot treat people, like they don’t matter.  Even if they treat me like I don’t matter.  

Do you see, what I am trying to say here?

I just realize, and pray, that we all wake up.  Christ could return any moment.  Or our last breath, could happen at any moment.

Stop playing church.  Stop playing sanctimonious.  Or stop playing dumb.  Stop playing with life.  Stop denying God and people.  

Because you know what, we all do sin, we all do come short of His glory. Yes, I hate sin, I hate what it did to me, and stopped my own blessings as I reaped the consequences…

But sometimes, when I look at someone, I am reminded, that I once was where they were.  I had filthy rags.  I am nobody better, then anybody else.  

So, all I know, is though…

I don’t want to grieve my Lord Jesus.  With religion, (rules, regulations, traditions, made by men, or groups, or even by myself, trying to do things my way.)  Or my way, which leads to hell, if you read my past post.  

I just don’t want to miss it any more, to conclude this.  Yes, I pray for more chances with my Lord, and people.  But I don’t want to miss it.  I don’t want to just take things for granted.  Because we never know.  We just don’t know……  

Sometimes, you have to walk by yourself.  And you are not walking alone.  If you make sure, by repentance, that Jesus is walking with you.  You are walking with Jesus.  Just don’t let go of His hand, on this earth, so you can make sure, He will walk you into heaven.

To conclude this:  Folks, don’t let time go by without making it right with God.  Repentance, I have learned, with fear of God, is the best thing, I can do for my spiritual health.  Even on a daily basis.  

With people, apologize, if you need to, see again, its not worth pettiness, or pride, because sometimes there are no second chances.   Please, if you don’t get anything else from my message today.  Make it right with God.  Make it right with people.  For your own sake.  Please.  

I guess, I am just thinking of those who wanted to do this, and that, and did not get that chance, because they did not make Christ, Lord and savior.  I think of that sick person, who wishes they had served God, instead of denying Him.  So they could have had physical health, and good spiritual health.  I think of others, who are headed for hell, because they did deny Him.  And let money, or sin, take priority.  

I think of the broken friendships and family relationships, that could have been fulfilled, if someone had just said, I am sorry.  

But then it was too late, with God, and others….  

I just think, I have to share truth.  I have to share His truth.  I don’t want Him to say, what did you do Elena, with the chances I gave you?  

I don’t want that to be me, or you.  You see, I never want to hear from Him.  I never knew you.  

Read Matthew 7, from a King James, but this verse says it all.  How strange, this is the second time, God led me to give that to someone, and now, I see it for myself as well, more then ever….

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

You don’t want Him to say that to you.  Or even think it.  

Friends, think of the blessings you have, and then do something with it, and about it, for God, for others.  You have your part.     

Hope this helps somebody today.  

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

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

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

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

I was in battle.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He got caught up in an agenda.

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

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

MATTHEW 7:20  KING JAMES

WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In Christ’s love, Elena Ramirez 

DEALING WITH TRUST ISSUES AS A CHRISTIAN ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0002.jpgDo you deal with trust issues?   I am just talking about in life.  But even as a Christian, one can have issues, and challenges in these matters of trust.

See, I am a Christian, and I had to learn how to trust God, from the beginning.  I grew up, with a very good mother, who loved me, but she had “major” trust issues.  

She had been damaged by many, and she trusted no one.  So she was suspicious  and very on guard.  So I grew up with that, yet, I knew it was unhealthy and very off balance, for lack of a better word, to be so untrusting.  

Because it can hinder relationships.  It can cause fear, and God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  

So, I learned to trust God.  

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART:  AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  Proverbs 3:5.  KJV. 

Look at this scripture, its very instructional.  And thats what Gods holy King James word will do, it will instruct, it comforts, it guides, it leads us closer to God, to even understand.  But its holy word.  Other bible versions, are someone else’s understanding not God, by the changing of it, and the words they use.  They make it no longer holy. Or anointed, and you really want the full power, and affect of holy word, from God Himself.  

But as you look at this scripture, we cannot, lean into our own understanding.  Get that quick, when it comes to “trusting.” 

We have to trust God, we have to do so, completely, without reservations, without question to God, though He is gracious enough to answer us, but something about having our faith, to “trust” God, releases something in us, that I call strength, and courage.  

Life is hard, and when people let you down, especially when you trust them, you do learn lessons in life.

I had a friend, who I loved dearly.  I never thought this person, would react the way she did, or do the things that she did in matters of respect.  Including her daughter.  Because I thought, I was part of the family, because of our friendship, we had in Christ.

But she hurt me.  And I really don’t want to get into all the details, or go on about it.  I think I have here, and its really an old issue, and I do want to be healed.  So I want to be careful about opening up an old wound.  

But it affected my trust.  And I even see myself, looking at other people that way, and think, are you going to hurt me too?  I have, done so, already, since this happened, and its not good.  

And I don’t want to blame others, for my experiences, in matters of trust.  But, I find, myself, trusting God more.  Asking for wisdom, and guidance, because I felt burned.  

I don’t think I can trust anybody like I did her, the damage is done.  Sure I forgive, but something changed in my heart, and well, like I said, I was brought up with that, negative energy, so I know, only God, can help me.  So its more of a challenge, now then ever.  

Have you ever noticed, the enemy tries to attack you in things, you have experienced?  Like a cycle it tries to come back.  Well I plead the blood of Jesus, aware, and commit to trust Him more.  To submit to God, resist the devil so he can flee. 

I don’t know where you are or if this will help.  But I share it, I write it, because I know who God is, and only He can help us with our issues of trust.  

As a Christian, I know this.  If you are not a Christian, I recommend you do give your heart to Christ.  Repent, for your own lack of doubt, or trust in God.  Or if you have caused someone, to hurt, because they trusted you, and you burned them.  Again read a King James, the anointing is there, for your faith, in anything.  

I don’t know how people do it, without God, without Christ.  I don’t want to find out.  See thats my reassurance in a world, that leaves Him out.  I won’t, ignore Him, because I do trust God, and thats the greatest strength, I get in life.  

Blessings, and love,

WHEN THE DEVIL WHISPERS DOUBT REBUKE HIM GO TO GOD GO BACK TO THE KING JAMES BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0564.jpgFrom the beginning of time, the devil has always tried to undermine Gods truth.  And even with a question.  Which brings doubt.  

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE.  AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEAH HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?  GENESIS 3:1  King James.

See, when we are not in Holy word, or when we are not reading our King James Bibles, even daily, for a dose of truth, then we can get weak in our faith.  

The battle will be in the mind.  We will be tossed to and fro.  

THAT WE HENCEFORTH BE NO MORE CHILDREN, ROSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE SLEIGHT OF MEN, AND CUNNING CRAFTINESS, WHEREBY THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  EPHESIANS 4:14.  KJV.  

See how that scripture talks about doctrine?

We have to see the devil was waiting for Eve, to make her question what God said, about not eating the fruit.  From that tree.  And she gave the right answer.  But then the devil came right out, and told her a straight out lie, and she believed the devil.  

AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.  FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GOD, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.  GENESIS 3:5  KJV.

What I find ironic, even at this point of my life, and seeing fake pastors, that try to tell us we are equal with God, that is just wrong.  

And do you really not see, that God did not want us to seek good and evil?  Because He loves us that much.  So many people, search for answers, in different different spiritualism, different entities, and that brings curses.  That opens the door to the devil, in those that deceive, as good, but really they are making you question, and doubt who you really are in God. 

So we have to be aware of the enemies antics.  We have to remember when we doubt.  When we question what God says, thats pretty dangerous.  Thats actually stupid.    So I don’t challenge what God says.  I learn to just believe it, accept it, and trust it.  That gives me hope.  That strengthens me, encourages me, in this life, where there seems to be no truth.  But Gods truth, will never let me down.  

SANCTIFY THEM THROUGH THY TRUTH:  THY WORD IS TRUTH.  JOHN 17:17  KJV.  

What does God really say?  This is why I continually pursue, and hammer the issue over Bible versions.  

Because they do make one question what God really says.  But if you use the King James, trust God in it, obey God, from even the other scriptures that tell us not to change it, add to it, or delete it, and when you do so, you are rebuking that devils voice.  

I just remember when I used them, that was a time, of questioning, confusion, and it was a spiritual deception, that I was unaware of, because I trusted the wordings.  Of corrupt Bibles.  Since, I use a KJV.  I don’t get that confusion.  Because I truly humble myself, in the sight of God, and actually see what He says, in the King James.  Thats how I go to Him. By relating to what He says, and obeying. 

Eve did not obey.  Adam did not obey.  But if we get fear of God, and depart from things, or people, that do not embrace His truth, then we can know better.  We do not have to question it.  But…by obedience.  Thats showing God we are obeying.  Its showing the devil, we are submitting to God.

If you are in that battle of the mind.  In anything, go to God.  Rebuke the devil.  Thats a spirit of confusion.  And God is not the author of confusion.  

FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS.  I Corinthians 14:33 KJV.  

I always think…. if only Adam and Eve, had gone back to God, asked Him a second time, then we would have been spared the curse.

But the thing is, we can do that now. We can go to God, and confirm it. By going back to the King James. By praying. God is that good, that He will answer us. He would not deny an answer, if we asked Him. Like they should have, He would have confirmed that they were not to eat from that tree. My lesson in life.

Always ask God. Always.  In prayer, and in my King James bible. Also repentance, to clear the spiritual slate.  So I can know…..

Blessings, in truth His KJV truth.
