LONGING FOR TRUTH AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3137LONGING FOR TRUTH….AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD….. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
I think all of us long for truth, theres that part of us, that just wants straight answers. No bull, no games, no compromises.
That really does come from a spirit, of truth, that can only come from God. You need to know there are two spirits, in this. Good, and evil. Remember the tree of good and evil? God did not want us eating from that tree. Eve, and Adam well they did eat of it. And it was sin, in Gods eyes.
Disobedience.
Today, still holds true, good and evil. And He does not want us to eat from that. We need to search for the truth, His truth. We have to be careful, because we can be so easily deceived, by religion, false bibles, lies, wolves in sheep clothing.
The root of that comes from the enemy, the devil, and he wants to deceive you, and keep you from truth.
Friends, search for the truth. For God, to please Him, for yourself, for your family, for just a sense of knowing whats right and wrong.
Beware of the traps from the enemy. Beware of lies.
Get hungry for truth. To be fulfilled. I still want Gods plan, away from the sin. I don’t want the sin, because I know how it can steal from your very own blessings…..
Repentance, is the only way I know we can get it. Humbleness, love…..Don’t let anything steal truth from you. Don’t let the tickling of ears, become your distraction.
Go for truth. Get it, King James truth, and grow….in truth. To be fulfilled. To renew your spirit. To understand, to gain wisdom. Truth, will never let you down. Don’t deny truth, or you become your own enemy.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH ~ DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2523.jpgFREEDOM OF SPEECH DO YOU USE IT OR ABUSE IT? By Elena Ramirez

I am grateful to God for our freedoms, here, in the United States.  Many are using that right, even now with our new President.  Donald J. Trump. To protest, and express how they feel.  But they cross a line, when they riot.  

I do not agree with many of these views.  Because they are not my core values, but I do respect freedom of speech.  But what I see, is many hide behind their computer, or even publicly say, and do things with freedom of speech that makes me cringe.  They abuse it. 

So lately, I don’t know, I have been seeing a lot of abuse. By many. And I guess it even concerns me, when I see a brother or a sister, in Christ abuse it.

People, I love.

Look, God gives us each a conscience. But maybe you will just consider what I am about to say as love. Maybe a guideline to help you.

But let me ask you a few questions…
Is what your sharing, is it truth?
Is it a lie?
Is it love?
Or is it hate?
Is it mean spirited?
Is it something, that will bring understanding?
Is it something, that is not a bad example for others to learn from? Hmmm.
Is it something that respects?
Is it something that disrespects?
Does it bring unity to us as Americans, and yes even people of other races, creeds, religions etc.

Or does it set out to cause division?

Are you promoting life? Or are you promoting something that hurts life? And takes it away…..

Is your agenda, Gods agenda?

All of these things are just things we can miss. I know, I probably do. And for that I repent to God. We need to find the balance. I am not your conscience. You are. I know, myself, I have erred….

But I also know…..

If God is your savior, you know, He knows your thoughts…..

But there are things, I just shake my head at, because its as if the person, is not really thinking…..

For, when I see a brother or a sister, playing with someones emotions. And they put out something, that may make ME sympathize with them, and even bring out outrage, or anger, because they were hurt, or insulted, and then THEY say;

“Hey I was just playing with you” I was pulling your leg.

I look at that as very immature.

Its a spirit, you are releasing that is a lie, and then you call it a joke. It harms your spirit, because you are practicing lying….

You have to look at the fruit of it, and what it gives, and what it does for you. And yes even others.

I don’t trust lies, or liars, and when I see someone who I trusted use that kind of illustration, to make me think different. Or to play with my emotions. I do, no longer, trust the integrity of that person.

Its like the analogy of the little boy, who cried wolf. Making people believe him, but when they saw the lie, they stopped believing him. But the sad thing happened, the wolf really did appear. No one believed him, when he truly spoke the truth….

Look, I want to be very general about this. But lets remember.

Freedom of speech is a gift. Its something we need to honor, and protect. It should not be used, to incite, evil, or violence, or anything that goes against what Christ taught us in love. The report, should bring light, not darkness, to ourselves or others.

Yes, and truth does not always means it won’t hurt. It will…

But, use love if your going to bring truth to it. Look, I am a warrior, but even God teaches warriors to be diplomatic.

I take to God what my KJV Says, and I don’t want to just pick and choose, for my purposes.

Just food for thought, this morning. Freedom of speech…do you use it, or abuse it?

FINALLY BRETHREN, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE HONEST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE THINK ON THESE THINGS…..THESE THINGS WHICH YE HAVE BOTH LEARNED AND RECEIVED, AND HEARD, AND SEEN IN ME DO: AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BE WITH YOU. PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9. KJV.

I just realize if we are going to use our voices, we really need to stop, and think, and be responsible.  

Accountable to God and others.  In love… I never want to abuse this gift.  

Blessings in Christ, Elena Ramirez 

MORE THOUGHTS THAT SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED… By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_784ONCE SAVED NOT ALWAYS SAVED….BY ELENA RAMIREZ

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK. EXODUS 32:33. KJV

WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS TURNETH FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMITETH INIQUITY, HE SHALL EVEN DIE THEREBY. EZEKIEL 33:18 KJV

The logic of these two above scriptures, tells me, whoever sins, without repentance, that God will blot someone out of the Lambs book of life.

The second verse says, very specifically, a person who has received salvation, but turns from the righteousness of Christ, and sins, he will die, without, salvation.

The thought behind that is, with Christ, we will have life eternally. But if someone “turns” from the righteousness, as it states here, and sins, they will die. They will lose their salvation. They will not have life eternally with Christ. This is why repentance is so important.

Now this last verse, I share comes from Revelation 22:18-19, and yes, it talks about those who change the KJV word. But it impresses on me very clearly, those who do change it, add to it, will lose their part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city. Thereby losing their salvation. Changing it, in any shape or form, is taking the words away from the prophecy…..

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 THE THIS BOOK: AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. REVELATION 22:18-19. KJV

Salvation is a contract. Christ did His part, God did His part. But we have our part. If we break the contract, it is our fault. Not Gods, not Christ but ours. We have broken the covenant, of life eternal with Christ. We have broken the contract of salvation, if we sin, without repenting. We will lose our salvation. We will make that contract, null and void.

Salvation is not saved once, and always saved, if someone breaks the covenant. By unrepented sin. REPENT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE, IS WHAT I RECOMMEND TO ANYONE WHO HAS SINNED. FOR WE KNOW NOT WHEN WE WILL LEAVE THIS EARTH. I WOULD GO SO FAR TO SAY, REPENT DAILY. FOR THE SINS, OF EVEN OUR THOUGHTS…..

WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERD; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT. EZEKIEL 33:13. KJV.

And I will just say this lastly. The devil himself, lost salvation. He was in the Kingdom of God, he was an angel. And he was jealous of God. God kicked him out of heaven because of it. He lost it, and so he would want someone to lose it as well. The devil, would want all of us to think Salvation is sound, and to sin, without repenting. And that is my whole point, that repentance is needed to secure it.

Wow, not an easy, feel good, soft and fuzzy title.  But I write them as the Lord gives them to me.

So why is the Lord using me, to write about something so strong?  That one could take offense to it.  Or it could open someones eyes.  Just the word “whore”, is vulgar, if you think about it.  

But it is biblical to talk about.  And this applies to men and women.  And even in other situations, besides adultery.  So here goes…

I WILL DO THESE THINGS UNTO THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST GONE A WHORING AFTER THE HEATHEN AND BECAUSE THOU ART POLLUTED WITH THEIR IDOLS.  EZEKIEL 23:30  KING JAMES.  

LEST THOU MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND, AND THEY GO A WHORING AFTER THEIR GODS, AND DO SACRIFICE UNTO THEIR GODS, AND ONE CALL THEE, AND THOU EAT OF HIS SACRIFICE.  EXODUS 34:15.  KING JAMES.  

AND THE SOUL THAT TURNETH AFTER SUCH AS HAVE FAMILIAR SPIRITS, AND AFTER WIZARDS, TO GO A WHORING AFTER THEM, I WILL EVEN SET MY FACE AGAINST THAT SOUL, AND WILL CUT HIM OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  LEVITICUS 20:6.  KING JAMES

So, one has to recognize it is a spirit.  And before it even manifests itself though, it can be taken to the cross, in repentance.  Before anything happens.  And I guess, thats what I want to warn you about.  I want you to recognize it, before, so you can avoid it.  So you can rebuke the whoring, adulterous spirit.  But only in the name of Jesus, can you find the power to do that.

I don’t want to judge anybody.  I have taken my own sins, to the cross, and prayed for forgiveness.  And even now, when I think about some of my own stupid sins, I still repent.

But, I do feel an obligation to write this, because there is a whorish, adulterous spirit, that can even come on the best, intending Christians.  Let alone, someone, who is naive, and does not know Gods truth.

Sin, its meant to kill, steal, destroy.  Its meant to stop your blessings.  Its meant to steal the promises from God from you.

Because if one sins, and does not repent, the enemy, has a “legal” right to harass you.  To steal your salvation.  To deceive you.  

I see messages, sometimes, that state grace, will make a way, when there is sin.  But they do not add, that inbetween, sin, and grace, there has to be repentance.  I don’t see it taught.  Maybe it is.

Anyway, we live in a very adulterous world.  Women, and men, showing their bodies, with no modesty, and what does this teach women, and men?  What does it teach our young girls?  Where is the outcry to say, cover yourselves up….don’t give it all away.  Leave the mystery.  But our society does not teach these things.  Just turn your television on, and you see it.

Respect yourself.  Because if you don’t the devil certainly will not.

And seldom, heard, do I hear it from the body of Christ, and Christian leaders.

Temptation comes….and when you most try to avoid it.  It will try anyway. But God says if we are obedient to him, he will not allow a temptation.

THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN;  BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE:  BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.  I Corinthians 10:13 King James only.

Remember Joseph, he ran, when the Pharoahs wife tried to seduce him.

We should run from sin.  We should teach our daughters and sons, the benefits of staying away from sin.  Including sexually transmitted diseases.

Now, just a clue here, but because we all want to be beautiful, smart, and blessed.  But what do we use our beauty for?  Is it to attract a mate?  Is it to show you are better then someone?  

Everything our society seems to point out is the beauty someone has?  But in doing so, they are losing something.  Its innocence.  Its modesty, its self-respect.  

Sometimes when I watch television programs where hollywood, or the music community has award shows.  I look at the womens clothing, and I think, golly, girl, put some clothes on.  You can catch a cold.  To say the least…..

You know what it brings, but a whorish, adulterous spirit.  That leads to sin.

People do not talk about sin hardly any more.  Maybe because we all do sin, according to scripture.  We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But, when you repent, and give your heart to God, you should make sure, you stay away from sin.  So you have to understand the spirits…whether of God, or the devil.  

Because you want your robes of righteousness, clean, when you stand before God.

That is your responsibility too.  We do not have an excuse to sin, when we accept Christ.  We don’t.

I just feel like I am talking to someone, who needs to see this.  You are so tempted right now.  You want to indulge in a whorish, adulterous spirit, and release yourself to someone.  Someone, who may even say they love you.  But if they loved you, they would marry you.  They would make it right before God.  By honoring you.  It would not be adulterous.  

Maybe you have an adulterous sin, just repent.  Ask God to cleanse you of your sins.  Turn from whoring ways.  But see it, before it is too late.  

If you do not honor yourself, no one else will.  You have to see that.

But what you don’t see, is that the devil, is trying to take your blessings, your future, your hopes, even your health away.

Repent for the thought, the desire, the longing, that holds you captive and just turn back to God.

Turn back, don’t go down that road.  It leads straight to hell.  So rebuke that whorish adulterous spirit.  Rebuke it, and get right with God.  Because it leads to other sins as well.  

Rebuke it, in Jesus name.  So your own true love can be revealed to God, and others.

KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?  BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATORS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND.   NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.  AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD.    I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 KING JAMES.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

MY THOUGHTS TO YOU FOR THE NEW YEAR OF 2016

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

REPENT!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Don’t throw away your chance.

Happy New year…

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

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

How do we add time to our life?  Well if you love Jesus Christ, and you have accepted Him as Lord and Savior, you know you are guaranteed eternal life.  With Him.  After you die.

And if you are reading this trying to learn, I recommend, you make Christ your Lord and savior.  Repent.  Confess your sins, to Him, and ask Him in your heart.  Try to learn.  His ways.  Beware of religion.  Mans ways.  Beware with all your heart, the deception that can come from the devil.  Know Gods truth.  Know Gods laws…..

And if you learn something here as well, that you thought was different, I recommend repenting as well.  

But how do we add time, long life to our lives on earth?  Hmmmm…..

Well I believe this is the answer.  If you will bear with me, in trying to understand.  So lately the issue, of the law and grace has been brought to me. And I have been pondering on it more so, and praying and thinking about it.  And I know, God is using me to make a point.  As He led me to my Bible to find the scripture below.  But please read this.  

I know many in the body of Christ, really take to misunderstand scripture from Paul. In the new Testament. And what amazes me, about this whole controversy, about being under the law, and grace….

Is that people forget that the law, which was first given by God to Moses, does not change. God did not flip flop, He did not change His mind, when He sent Christ to fulfill the law. Scripture says, He is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  

God says, it in the Old Testament.  MALACHI 3:6 FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT, THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT CONSUMED.  And it also says it about Christ, the Son of God.  In the New Testament. HEBREWS 13:8. JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY AND FOREVER.  

Maybe what Moses added, in religion, as law can be abolished, but not what God commanded even in the Ten Commandments.  Yes let me repeat that, maybe what Moses added, but not what God commanded.  Moses was a man.  Paul was a man.  But God is God.  That makes it the final authority.  And again, He does not change.  And when I say what Moses added, I am talking about the sacrificing.  This was documented by Moses.  

Grace, which is a beautiful thing, that yes, I rely on, still reminds me that the law, is the foundation of our faith. God said He would write those laws in our hearts.  But you have to know them.  By reading, and embracing His law.  When we know Gods laws, put it in our hearts, and are mindful of it, it keeps us from sin. By the holy spirit, we are reminded. It is the standard, to know. When one does not know.  We search for truth. It is the foundation of truth.

It is a balance. Scripture tells us, that a false balance is an abomination to God. So we have to find the balance. But I guess what bothers me about all grace messages, that I hear that gets off balance, is they do not teach about the law. How can Christ truly be our cornerstone, in balance, if we don’t know Gods ways, His commandments? Not mans ways. Gods ways.

How can we grow, and have discernment if those laws are not taught? People, think because the law, according to Paul, is a burden, yes even a curse…..in some ways, that is misinterpreted from Galatians 3. That they won’t even look at law. Yet scripture tells us, if we do not keep the law, that is a curse.

BUT THIS PEOPLE WHO KNOWETH NOT THE LAW ARE CURSED. JOHN 7;49. Please note this comes from the New Testament.

I know, by my own walk, how much I rely on grace. Because of my own sins.  When I repent, and I still do…I rely on the mercy and grace of God.

But I also know, that the law of God, the commandments, teaches me what God expects. To be honest, if I had taken those commandments, even the ten commandments, the law, to heart as a young woman, I know I would have avoided heartache.  But we reap what we sow.  I reaped sin, because I did not know them.  And the wages of sin is death.  Oh how we should teach Gods commandments His law, to each other, and to our children.  

His standards yes are of excellence. His ways, we can never reach. Because He is holy, and we all sin we all come short of the glory of God.

But I want to know Him and try with all my being, to try and keep His ways. NOW I think when we get off balance, we can just think grace will do it for us, but it can’t without knowing His law.  How can our hearts, our souls be pricked to want to repent? 

Are we going to throw away all the other scriptures that remind us to keep the law, by just one thing Paul said, and that was misinterpreted? Misinterpreted by bad Bible versions, and not looking closely at King James word.  Why do you think I always recommend a King James.  Here is another reason why….

Look at Psalms 119 from a King James very closely.  That long chapter, deals with the Holy word, the commandments, and the law.  The ways of God.  

Are we going to throw away the truths from the Old Testament, and just think the new Testament, which is the new covenant, that it will change our hearts?  Why are they both in our King James Bible then, together.  Combined?  

Hmmmm…I cannot deny the law.  

What is the basis of our faith, if we do not know and try to keep the laws of God? We can only accept what Christ did for us, if we understand the law. But we don’t throw it away.

The only thing I see from the old testament, in the laws, that were made, that makes the covenant different. Is that of the sacrificing. We do not sacrifice anything, any more. Because Christ is the sacrifice. Christ is….The lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Which makes us free from the law of sin and death.  

ROMANS 8:2  FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  

But those other commandments, and laws….cannot be abolished. When we know this is what God gave us to better our lives. To give it length.

If you don’t believe me, believe God, believe this scripture.  Do you want long life, peace?  Then take this to heart…

MY SON, FORGET NOT MY LAW; BUT LET THINE HEART KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS; FOR LENGTH OF DAYS, AND LONG LIFE, AND PEACE, SHALL THEY ADD TO THEE. PROVERBS 3:1-2

Blessings and Love, may you see this truth, in Jesus name, our Lord.  Amen.  If you can see this, you can and may break curses over your own life.  I am claiming this truth, and pleading the blood of Jesus.  Because sickness, that causes death, is a spiritual thing.  And if that is understood, about the law then the physical healing can come forth and break the curse.  Remember, those that know the law, are not cursed.  (see above scripture for validation)

In Christ, and His love,

So Halloween is over.

And many of us tried and to warn you to not have anything to do with the holiday. But you did and you do not take to heart the many scriptures that warn us not do that. Even in serving candy.

What harm is that you say? Churches do it all the time. Well, let’s look at just one scripture. And let’s look at it symbolically.

“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.”
1 Corinthians 10:21 KJV

When you serve candy in honor of this holiday. Whose table does that come from?

This is why we cannot serve from the Devils table. Because it looks like we would serve the devil.  By serving others candy, that comes from the devils table.  

We are called not to give any place to the devil! No place!  (paraphrasing) Ephesians 4:27.  King James.  

We are to submit to God. Resist the enemy and he will flee.  (paraphrasing) James 4:7.  King James.  

You see I repented because I thought there was no harm in it. But that is the deception.

And do I know exactly what the consequences of this sin is?  No, all I know, is if we truly love God, as we say we do, we don’t abuse, or take for granted His grace.

I will be honest, because I cannot speak for someone else, and the punishment, of disobeying God, except for what I see in my holy Bible, the King James bible.  

Please note:  I am adding this two days after I wrote this, as the Lord brought this scripture to me.  

FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD; BEHOLD, THEY WHOSE JUDGMENT WAS NOT TO DRINK OF THE CUP HAVE ASSUREDLY DRUNKEN; AND ART THOU HE THAT SHALL ALTOGETHER GO UNPUNISHED?  THOU SHALT NOT GO UNPUNISHED, BUT THOU SHALT SURELY DRINK OF IT.   JEREMIAH 49:12.

But when anybody, abused scripture, and did not take to heart the consequences, of this, they paid heavily.  Salvation lost, and the wrath of God.  This is documented in my Holy King James Bible.  And we are called to fear God!

God has been so good to me.  But it is this year especially, more then ever, I see the deception of Halloween.

A process, to stop dressing up, or decorating, or even serving candy.  Last year I did not serve.  I did not open my door, I did not give place to the enemy.  One full year.

And now full circle, I feel stronger.  And I pray for forgiveness, for even being so dumb, and naive.

How I long to see, God working in my life, in my family, in my home, my finances, my health….all of it.  But I have my part in obedience. 

What blocks Gods blessings?  What makes Him stop listening to any of us?

Sin, it separates us from God.

So, you do what you want.  This season, I tried to warn many.  I tried, to show them.  Instead, I got defiance, and I got rebellious;

“Who are you to judge”?  

When I am called to warn.  You are called to warn.  This is very scriptural.  Read  Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33.  We are called to warn the wicked, and the righteous, that have disobeyed.  

Sadly, the body of Christ has an identity problem in distinguishing what is judging, and what is warning someone.  

And well to go to a church that thinks this is o.k.  Is not a church I would want to go to, or have my kids go to.

Christ would not compromise. Truth. For the deception is teaching those kids, to dress up, to go to church, and to get candy, on a day that is meant for evil. And it gives the wrong message.

It gives, compromise, when they should be taught, to depart from evil.

No wonder the body of Christ is all jacked up. Because people compromise, when they should be telling someone the truth, to a child, who is so impressionable. That they reap curses. Generational curses. But no… the body of Christ thinks just on that day to invite kids, to give them a place to go, when they should just know truth, that this is wrong.

It is just wrong. I see them as well through the eyes of Christ and I know the difference between a counterfeit and the real thing. And Jesus would not compromise truth. He would not!  He would warn of the evil of it. 

How dare anybody take the devil into the house of God! How dare they pollute it, with this pagan holidays, traditions, and rituals, and sacrificing. It is blatantly insulting, to do this in the house of our Lord. And He is not mocked. Oh He is gracious, but this is His house, and it is meant to be a place of true worship, prayer, and truth. And they pollute it.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  This is also King James scriptural.

And I plead the blood of Jesus.  I cover my house with it, like in Psalms 91.

To each their own…..Repentance is a good thing to clear the slate.  

In Christ, I humbly write this….
