RACE BAITING IN AMERICA IS DUMB TO ME ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1455.jpegI apologize, for being so blunt.  But we live in the greatest nation in the world.

What are some folks trying to do?  Take us back?  Haven’t we learned the lessons in this?Do we not read history books?

These are terrible tactics, when folks race bait.  They stir up old hurts, old wounds, and they can incite violence.  People are like sponges.  They take the bait, and they use it.  It is wrong, and to me it stems from ignorance, and hate.  They are planting seeds of hate.  These are subliminal messages that are hurting us. We better all be aware of it!IMG_0046

Point and example.  And I won’t say names.  But I see, politicians, journalists, famous people, stating our President is a White Supremacist.  They are stirring up hate, they are dividing us.  And what’s so ironic.  Is they will reap what they sow.  To me, and thats why I say it’s dumb.  If he was a racist, why are jobs opening up for Hispanics, and Blacks, and all minorities?

Doesn’t sound like a racist to me. IMG_3608.jpeg

Some of these folks are white.  Who are calling him this.  They are white, he is white.  Why would anyone do that?

But all races are doing it I have noticed.  Either way, they are playing the race card.  But that card is null and void.

But think about this, when they do that, they are making people look at their own race.  And it is dumb, to bring that kind of negative energy that spirit of hate to their own race.  Really?  Do you want someone to hate your race, or incite violence to anyone in that group because you keep calling your President a White Supremacist?  Some folks are innocent, do not jeopardize anyone with this bad behavior!

Thats wrong!  Everyone is attacking his words.  What bothers me, is they added to his words.  He did not say, or identify anyone by their race, nor did he speak hey you person of color, leave America.  He said, “If you don’t like America leave.”  And isn’t he required to have freedom of speech too?

Folks are upset that at his last rally, some folks said something….

(No I am not being sarcastic if you read something else in that.)

But they have freedom of speech, as WE THE PEOPLE.

I actually agree with him.  If someone does not love this great nation, where we have freedom.  Please leave.  Stop biting the hand that feeds you.  Stop inciting this violence, anger, hate.  We don’t need it.  We are better than that.   They are just mad at him, because basically, he is applying the laws to our country.  In immigration.  But either way, this is all motivated from hate.  Lets be honest with each other.

Oh I am seeing it from everybody.  Everybody is getting on the band wagon.  They took the bait.  They drank the Kook-aid.  And now they are getting everyone in America, ticked off about race.

Look I am brown.  I am Hispanic.  Born and raised, with indigenous roots.  I am an American citizen. I love my God, and country.  I was taught to honor that office.  Of the President of the United States.  So I do, I pray for him.  I Timothy 2:1-3  King James.  Look it up, from a King James.

I was taught early, that Americans were united.  I was taught to love, all races in this country, because we are a melting pot.  I was taught, that men and women, of all races, have fought for one good, for our freedoms.  For that flag to be raised up high.  I was glad to learn about our forefathers, and how they as settlers came to find a place of freedom.  For all people. IMG_0002.jpg

So when I see folks, fussing, not wanting to even give their support, or honor to our flag.  By pledging allegiance to it. Or standing for our flag, at a sport event.  I think they don’t know how great our country is.  So they dishonor our flag, and they toss it, and throw it, and step on it with no respect.  Thats wrong.  People have died for our freedoms.IMG_1246.jpg

They take their freedoms for granted.  When they speak against our President, and yes they have freedom of speech, but they forget in other countries, this kind of disloyalty could lead to sedition, or even treason.  They could be banished, or worse.  God forbid.  I don’t even want to think about it.  But seriously, some folks, should do some research, and know our laws.

But, I want nothing to do with those kind of people.  Someone said this today, but I agree.  This person said:  I did not leave my party, that party left me.  

But do you see where this is all going?  The melting pot, is boiling. God forbid, it gets that bad, but it is getting bad, and I see it, and I think we all see it.

Our colors, our race should not matter, in the United States.  Not if you are an American citizen.  Assimilate, be American!

Don’t you dare use it, to get special attention.  That makes you a racist.  

Sure, appreciate your culture, if you choose to do so.  But I am an American first.  And my colors are red, white, and blue.  Why can’t we see each other that way?

I just saw, a video of someone who is running for President, and she had these folks standing up.  White and black people.  She had the white people, recite to the black people, that they were sorry, for the pain and heartache, their race caused them.  Now if it wasn’t so filled with manipulation, and hate, it would be nice, but that to me is a spirit of control, and manipulation, and my ancestors did not have anything to do with racism.  I would run out of a service like that.  This is not of God.

Reparations?  Really?  See we are not fully looking at our history, and we are doomed to repeat it, with this race baiting.  It is so wrong, on so many levels.

When I see leaders doing this, I think my goodness, you have a responsibility, to unite people, not divide them.  Why are you doing this?  It is like they lost all sense of whats good.  Their moral codes, are broken.  But that is just my opinion, as an American.

So, to each their own.  We do have freedom of speech. But I can see someone who is race baiting.  I can see the seeds of fear, they are trying to plant, and that does not come from God either.

FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.  II TIMOTHY 1:7  KJV

Christ taught us to love one another.  God tells us He is not a respecter of persons.  He loves us all.

A NEW COMMANDMENT I GIVE UNTO YOU, THAT YE LOVE ONE ANOTHER; AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, THAT YE ALSO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:34

And the following verse, we should all remember if we claim we are Christians.

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  John 13:35  King James. 

So if He loves us all, we should love one another.  We should love God first, and then love one another.  As for the immigrant, yes love them too.  But they should be here legally.  If they really want to seek asylum, go to a legal port of entry.  Do it right.  America is compassionate.  We want all people to come.  But legally.  Why is that word left out of conversations?Hawaiian Pictures 2007 February 062

Stop hurting Americans, with all this race baiting, and hate.  We are one nation under God, let us act like it, let us be united.  Let us love one another.

See, what scares me, is that it could get ugly, I want nothing to do with race baiting.  People are getting angry.  You can just sense the pulse of it, and its not unity.  A house divided will fall.

Even though, I do understand discrimination.  I won’t be a part of it.  See, I have been discriminated against.  My family has been discriminated.  And my family, and our ancestors are American.  My dad, God bless his soul, once told me of how badly he was discriminated, against.  But he taught me love this country.  He served it. americanprouddaughterofavet

But we don’t hate those who did that.  And especially will not hold the whole race against them. We forgave.  We know, who we are.  We are American citizens.  We are children of God.  As Christians, and Americans we don’t play the race card.

It makes people into victims. Literally.  They get this mind set, that they are only judged by race.  Don’t play the race card.  With anyone, not if you want peace in your life, and with others.  Don’t.  I don’t claim to be a victim.  Though, I know I fell through the cracks in many ways.  I could but I will not. I am so blessed to live in this nation, and to call it my home.  There is no greater country than the United States.

Even Martin Luther King, who I understand was a Republican said, something to the affect, that he did not want to be judged by the color of his skin, but by the content of his heart.

What I am seeing is a lot of folks, whose heart is not right with God, or with each other. They do not appreciate our great nation, or they would not play the race card, or race bait.  It is wrong.  I believe we need to get right with God.  To repent of all this hate, and our sins.   I believe someday we all will stand before God, and that scares me more.

May God bless America, may we bless God, and stop this hate.  Just remember this, God is not a respecter of persons.  Neither should we, we should just respect each other, love each other, for our differences, the different gifts, and callings each other brings, instead of hating one another, for being a different color, or race.  It’s dumb.

If we disagree, and I have to practice this myself, lets do it, without insulting each other.  Lets stop this please.  We as Americans are better than all of this nonsense.  We live in the greatest nation in the whole world.  We have freedom.  Let us not abuse it.  Or each other.

FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD.  ROMANS 2:11 KJV. 

Thanks for reading my thoughts on this.  If you choose to debate this, I am not going to argue.  See I am using my freedom of speech.  I will ignore those comments that just do not respect or want to argue.  Thank God we all have freedom.  If you live in America.

In Christ,

Elena Ramirez

PRAISING GOD AS YOU ENCOURAGE YOURSELF IN HIM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3636Encouraging yourself in God, is your job.  This is where, praise, worship, prayer, reading of Holy King James scripture, and trusting God, comes in.

It is your job.  It is your responsibility.  It should be a way of life.  It should not be done begrudging, or frustrated.  Or in a way, that shows you and God, that you do not lift Him up as a priority.  He sees, He knows.

You train yourself, as a soldier for the Lord.  Your build up your own faith, by “encouraging” yourself in God.

A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do…. “HOW TO HAVE FAITH” This book is a self-help book to bring insight to your faith, and to know what pleases God.

So many Christians, who say they are Christians, do not try to discipline themselves, to encourage themselves in God.  Do you notice that word, “discipline”  if you are a disciple of Christ, that is derived from that, in disciplining.

David understood that.  He knew, he had to seek God.  He suffered, from everything he went through.  Yet, David was just a man, he had his weaknesses, and sins.  But God loved David.

One thing, I admired about David, was that even though Saul, did not like him, hated him, cast him out, hunted him…. David knew God had anointed Saul.  He knew, better then to try and do the same to him.  Scripture says, touch not my anointed.  What a wonderful example.

But even though, he knew this, he knew he had to encourage himself in God.

We could all learn from this.  To encourage ourselves in God….

Life is not easy, thats for sure.  And even if it was, all the more reason, to encourage ourselves in our Lord.

AND HE SET THE PRIESTS IN THEIR CHARGES, AND ENCOURAGED THEM TO THE SERVICE OF THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.  JUDGES 20:22 KJV.

Blessings, and love,

IF YOU BREAK GODS LAWS YOU WILL BREAK MANS LAWS THE LAW OF THE LAND (IMMIGRATION) ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


 

IMG_4828.jpegI DELIGHT TO DO THY WILL, O MY GOD:  YEA, THY LAW IS WITHIN MY HEART.  Psalms 40:8.  KJV.

I love Gods law, I love how it makes me feel closer to God.  How it makes me realize God is many things, including a just God, but He is also a legal God.

BUT HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD: AND IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT.  PSALMS 1:2.  KJV.  

I do meditate on Gods word day and night.  To try and know His laws.  So I can please Him, and it has been working.  I have a sense lately, and I cannot explain it, but I know this pleases God, searching to understand His laws.  As you know, I promote the King James for holiness, for the anointing, the full power of Gods promises, about who He is, and His law.  I probably should have been a lawyer, but I will be a defender of His truth.  My King James bible.

The Lord, has really been showing me a lot about the law lately, and I have been encountering those who in the body of Christ, as well, as in the world, who have no honor or respect for law.

And I am talking about Gods law, as well as every day laws, that are in place.  In society, and in the United States.  They don’t respect it, honor it, or even consider it.  Which makes me sad.  But I wonder how God feels?

It just has made me conclude, that if you don’t honor Gods laws, you won’t have an example or understanding to respect mans laws, or the laws of the land.   I wonder if this is part of our problem?

And I don’t say that flippantly.  I say, that, because I have actually talked to Christians, who really have no respect for law.  And first because they do not respect Gods law.

And if you have no respect, for Gods law, you won’t have fear of God.  I have written about the fear of God on a few occasions, but it has made me see, that if you fear God.  You will fear the consequences of breaking His laws.  It will keep you out of trouble.

I have made those mistakes, which are in His eyes sin.  And many Christians, have a strange, and to me a perverted sense, when it comes to the law.  They think they have a license to sin, because of grace.  They really don’t help people, to be free, because they themselves are blind, and leading the blind, and have chains on themselves.

And when you think you don’t have to honor Gods laws, your in a strange place spiritually.  I have talked to many who think that we are free from the law.  And that is so wrong, because the only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death.  Found in Romans 8:2.  One could miss that, if they don’t look carefully, and I think many Christians have missed that.  But Romans 8:2 says this:

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

Do you notice it does not elaborate, that we are free from Gods commandments or laws?

Many Christians make this mistake.  They think grace covers it. Wrong.  If sin is evident, and it’s unrepented.  God will not answer your prayers, (read Psalms 66:18 King James) And it will be marked against you in the book of life.  And when you stand before God, those books will be opened.  What will it say?  That you disregarded Gods laws, and the law of the land?

I talked to a woman yesterday, who was very knowledgeable about word.  She used it in the context, concerning the immigration problem we have.  And I won’t share all the scripture she used, but she tried to use it in a way, where it was promoting illegal activity for immigrants.

We went rounds, me and this lady, in our communications.  But she had this strange perverted sense, that if it is good, (in her eyes, which could be deceptive) then its o.k. to break laws.  Wrong.  She admitted to wanting to breaking the law of the land.  And promoted that to me.

She tried to use examples, but because I do fear God, and I do try to keep Gods laws, and commandments, I saw through her reasoning.  Basically, she was trying to find loop holes, to sin.  And she wanted to bring me into that darkness, to agree, with her agenda, but I would not go for it.IMG_4227

What I finally concluded about this lady, is that, she had pride.  She actually admitted, she was trying to turn the tables in the matter, and would use scripture to try and justify the breaking of laws.  Gods law, and the law of the land, concerning immigration.

I am somewhat saddened to see, our country in the position it is in right now.  Concerning immigration, as I add my two cents here.  I feel for those people.  But I truly believe if those in authority, from the beginning, had protected our borders, supported our President Trump, with funds, in these matters, that would have been a clear signal, Don’t come here illegally.

Many want to argue, that they are seeking asylum.  But there are ports of entry, to do that, to do it legally. See “Violation 8, United States Code 1325.” And when they just come into the land, and get benefits from Americans that pay their taxes.  I just think its wrong.  We have a homeless problem and a problem where our own Veterans, need assistance, and help, and they should take priority to me.

This woman  wanted to use scripture that supports the alien, that comes in the land.  To love them to be kind to them.  I don’t have a problem with that.  If here legally.  I don’t know the conditions to be honest at those detention centers.  But I still believe we are a compassionate country, and treat people fairly.  But they are definitely overfilled.  So the resources are limited, because funds are not available.  And whose fault is that?

What bothers me, is she disregarded our laws.  As an American, and as a Christian. And….How that can hurt Americans.  Yet she could not see how it hurts America.  Or herself.

And this is where she and I disagreed.  Her heart, was compassionate.  I am compassionate as well, but there is a right way, and a wrong way.  A legal way, and an illegal way, and if you do it illegally, you don’t honor God.  Or the laws of the land.

I have seen other Christians who do not honor Gods law, I had another lady tell me she was “blameless.”  As she dismissed Gods laws. And I thought how strange, because I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  This is also scriptural.   No one is blameless.  Every one of us, put Christ on that cross.  She even in some strange way, said, grace was better than her salvation, which to me insulted Christ, and what He did on that cross for us, but she tried to use language as her mistake, so I gave her grace.  And I do not want to judge, because I know, I sin as well.

But still….When you break Gods laws….

Thats pride, that’s another way of trying to justify breaking laws, because of grace.  We do not grow, if pride or sin is there.  By breaking Gods laws.

All I know, and see is that if we do not honor Gods laws, we will break mans laws.  And if I can get you to see that, and honor Gods laws, perhaps I will spare you some heartache.

I just think of how misguided I was in my youth.  I broke laws, of God. And against myself.   I paid severely in many ways because of that.  It taught me to look and see why things sometimes did not go well with me, spiritually or in life.

Breaking laws, Gods laws first, hurts a person.IMG_4217

One of my favorite scriptures, I use in this, is the following:  It is a secret to happiness. By keeping the law.   I tried to share it with that lady, who disagreed with me concerning immigration.  She dismissed it.  She picked and chose another scripture that she believed tried to deflect from that truth.  Which I will write here as well.

But to me, because she actually took a stance in trying to break the laws of the land, and tried to justify it was o.k.  She actually failed in her attempts to help those people, because without the law, they will perish.  They cannot find happiness.  And isn’t that just one of the wonderful things we all seek?  Happiness?

Many of these immigrants are suffering, because they are so misguided, when it comes to obeying the law, and if they see many in our country turning the other eye, disobeying the law, what do they expect?  They will come.

PROVERBS 29:18  KJV.  WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH:  BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  

She ignored this scripture.  She gave me this one:

THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT.  AND THE SECOND IS LIKE UNTO IT, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.  ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.  MATTHEW 22:38-40  KJV.

Which she thought gave her permission to break all the other laws.  And do you see this?  I do, many will take one scripture like this, and disregard the rest of the Bible, and thats wrong.

I wish, I had shared this scripture with her, I may just put my post on that page, maybe she will see it, even though, I blocked her, I got tired of her nonsense.

THOU THAT MAKEST THY BOAST OF THE LAW, THROUGH BREAKING THE LAW DISHONOUREST THOU GOD?  ROMANS 2:23  KJV.  

We dishonor God,  if we break mans laws, and Gods laws.  And one may get away with it, but sooner or later, it will catch up with a person, and it is better to just see, the error of our ways, repent, and make it right with God, and with those you have broken laws with.  Including the law of loving one another.  You can love, legally, others.  It would be better for them, and yourself if we all take this to heart.

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, AND I SHALL KEEP THY LAW: YEA, I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART.  PSALMS 119:34.

IMG_4662(Read all of Psalms 119, from a King James, it gives a beautiful understanding to doing the right thing by Gods laws.)

FOR I GIVE YOU GOOD DOCTRINE, FORSAKE YE NOT MY LAW.  PROVERBS 4:2  KJV.  

Blessings, in Christ,

I WONDER WHAT GOD THINKS WHEN YOU CALL HIS CHILD A “HERETIC” ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_1813.jpegTITUS 3:10 A MAN THAT IS AN HERETIC AFTER THE FIRST AND SECOND ADMONITION REJECT.  KING JAMES.  

I guess I wonder, because I was called that yesterday…….

P8280045And the sad thing is, I know I am not a heretic.  I am a child of God.  And I think if you are a Christian, and you know what God has done for you.  And you know who God is, what He can do, His power, His majesty, all of His wonderful attributes, and you Love God.  And I know I do, I always have….

You should not accept being labeled like that.  By anyone. I won’t.  I refuse those kind of words to be spoken over me. I won’t accept that, from anybody, no matter who they are.  Because I know what God has done for me.  I was lost, and broken, and it was Christ that came and soothed me, and tended to my wounds.  And I reject, that word, heretic and refuse to be called that by anyone.  I know who I am in Christ.

That did not come from God, but from the devil himself.  He threw a rock at me. Accusing.  I hope if this individual ever sees this, which I don’t know, or not, if God will make a way to do that, I pray, he looks up Revelation 12:10 from a King James.  Because there is a place in hell for those who accuse the brethren.  I am the brethren.  Bought by the blood of Jesus. I will never take that for granted.

See, I have been bought by the blood of Jesus, and I have accepted my Lord and savior, and yes, He has accepted me.  I know I have a place in His Kingdom.  He has a prepared a place for me.  I repented of my sins.  I still repent for my short comings, because I know I am not perfect.  But I always plead the blood of Jesus, because I never want to give place to the enemy.

Yes I value my salvation.  I never want to be deceived by the enemy.  I never want to take my salvation for granted.  I know the enemy can deceive someone.  Scripture says, let no man steal your crown.  I suppose thats what ticked this individual off to begin with, because I used that scripture reference.  I don’t know, exactly what ticked him off, but it was like he was a time bomb, and he exploded.  I saw it.

BEHOLD I COME QUICKLY:  HOLD THAT FAST WHICH THOU HAST, THAT NO MAN TAKE THY CROWN.  Revelation 3:11 KJV

If interested in reading my books via Smashwords, go to this link. My latest book. BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST. This book brings attention to the behaviors, one may have that can contribute to a curse. But by Christ it can change into a blessing.

I walked in love with this individual, I admired this individual.  This so-called man of God.  I saw an anointing on him, because of his prayers.  Because of his prayers, for our President.  I bet some folks, could just read this, and know who I am talking about, because of his position, even in the body of Christ.  Maybe you will tell him that I wrote this about him.

He took such a mean stance toward me, that I still quite do not understand.  I got a little shocked.  We were discussing, works, and grace, and he totally took my words out of context.  I thought, I was talking to a true brother in Christ.  I was not.

And even if I was wrong, which I don’t think I was, I just feel he should have been a gentleman in Christ, and extended grace to me, he did not.  Instead, he shooed me away like I was filth.  Like a fly. Like I was on the side of the enemy, and I am not.  He made me his enemy, and I looked at him like a brother in Christ….

I rebuke that in the name of Jesus, because I know who I am in Christ.

But it made me think of that Pharisee spirit, that so many can have.  It made me think of those who are in Christ, who may just want to express themselves, and they are put down, or silenced, or not given any patience.  Perhaps, they are baby Christians, and they are trying to find truth, or their way, but instead, treated harshly.

It does make me wonder what God thinks, very seriously, because they have actually turned someone off to God.  When they could have led them to Christ.  It makes me sad, and I am sure it can make God sad to know, that this person, got so turned off, by what they see, with legalistic Christians, hitting them on the head.

No wonder, many are turned off, with religion.  No wonder, many are turned off by Christianity.  But I plead with you even here, if you have been turned off by religious folks, please don’t let that stop you from seeking Christ.  Please, He is love.  He will help you.  No matter what….Its all about relationship with Christ.  But it is up to us individually to seek Him.

See, I also have seen that religious spirit, that Pharisee spirit, from time to time, and it is so cruel, and mean.  I can identify it, and call it for what it is.  I am sure it happens more then I even know.  But God knows, and if you have experienced that, please share your comments here.   I will honor, honesty, in matters like this. IMG_2412

Now, if he had been talking to someone else, I probably would have been crushed by his words to me.  It is a good thing, I had my armor of God on, it is a good thing, I know my King James Bible.  Because I did walk in love.  All I could do was shake the dust off.  I think if I had been more of a baby Christian I would have been so hurt, that perhaps, “religion” would have turned me off.  Well, too, late, religion did turn me off a long time ago.

See, religion is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men, and groups.  I don’t have a religion, I have a relationship with Christ.  I thought this man did as well.  But when it came to just sharing, he took my words, twisted them, insulted me, and tried to hurt me.

This is the definition of that word.  From the dictionary.

HERETIC – SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES OR TEACHES SOMETHING THAT GOES AGAINST ACCEPTED OR OFFICIAL BELIEFS. 

I suppose, if I could have had the chance, I would have asked him, whose beliefs are those?  Yours or God?  Because there was no love in his words. But he did not give me a chance to even communicate. No grace.  Do those words come from God, or from some twisted pre-conceived idea of what religious thinking does and think?  Because I will be honest, that spirit is not from the Christ, I know. And there is no other God. I don’t follow religion.  I follow my Lord, and savior. Jesus Christ.  Because in His spirit, I see, He is love.  He is merciful, kind, patient, and above all, holy.

I hope who ever looks at this, will remember my post.  I pray, you never treat a child of God like that.  No matter how wrong they are.  Or right they are.  Remember, we all look at things differently.  We all have our ways of learning, or understanding.  I was accused of actually omitting things out of the word of God.  Ironic, because I do uphold the King James as whole and true.  So does he.  Thats what was strange.  But even though I do not agree with many who do not uphold the King James.  I still walk in love.  I try at least.

But I know my intention in my heart of hearts,  it was not to misrepresent, or even interpret Gods word, any other way, then what He gives us.  I know the word is not up for private interpretation, but is given by the Holy Spirit.  Read II Peter 1:19-21 KJV

But I know who I am in Christ.  I may not agree with many.  On many different subjects.  Including the loss of salvation.  I believe it can be lost, if someone sins, and does not repent.  Thats when grace runs out.  And no, I don’t look for loop holes in the word of God.  Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn one another.  To save our own souls.  So, yes I do warn. Though, you might call it judging.

There have been battles, spiritual battles, but I always try to remember even though we do not agree, the enemy may have deceived that person.

Yes there have been heretic spirits, I have encountered.  When they actually want to fight, about word.  I don’t want to fight about word.  Or about Gods law.  God is a legal God.  If you don’t agree with me, thats your choice.  But God did not flip flop from the Old Testament, to the New Testament.  He only freed us, from the law of sin and death.  Not His commandments.  But I don’t have to fight.  I know truth stands on its own merit.  And I know God will do the final judging.

To judge another sister, or brother in Christ, scares me, worse yet, to accuse them of being a heretic.  But I pray, never to ever, treat someone so mean, so cruel, as I was treated yesterday.  Sad thing is, I have seen this spirit before.  And it makes me sad.  I know what word says, and it says, we will be known by the love, we have for one another.  And I did not see that love.  From this man.  A man of God.  I suppose thats why I am writing this.

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:25  King James. 

I hope you remember this.  This is my prayer as I close.  In Christs love, that I honor, and protect, and guard, my heart.  My soul, my being.  In Christ.IMG_1762.jpg

Oh Lord, I pray I never treat a child of yours like that.  Even with what I know Lord.  I pray, I never try to wound someone you call your child.  

Lord, I know, you have given me knowledge, and understanding, discernment in many matters, but I pray, never to hit someone on the head with a bible, with your word.  Father, I know I don’t know everything, and I will not even act like I do.  I know there is much you can teach me.  

Still…But I pray, you teach me.  Because you are kind, and patient.  You know where I am on the vine.  Lord, its a good thing I walked in love with this man.  I did not argue.  I did not try to prove him right or wrong.  As he did me.  It looked like pride. I did not understand his stance.  You know… I had peace, I was not in a spirit of strife.  I knew it.  But it hurt… Since, I have actually agreed in prayer with him.  On other occasions. But he could not see who I was in Christ.  I asked him not to judge me, but he did anyway.  I just expressed myself, and he took my words, and used them against me, calling me a heretic.  

Lord, I forgive him.  But I pray, he sees the error of his ways.  Yes, I suppose it does hurt, somewhat, because I admired him.  But that was the most ugliest, most religious spirit, I have seen, and though I have seen it before in others, I never want to get near it again.  I did not expect that from him. Sad thing is Lord, he did that publicly, in front of others.  Trying to humiliate me, publicly. What does that say about him?  Or even me?  Why did that spirit come out of him?  I suppose this is why I write this post, and make it public.  

That is not who you are Lord.  You tell us, that they will scourge us.  You tell us they will hate us.  You tell us, that we will be known by the love we have for one another, and he did not walk in that love toward me Lord.  I tried, Lord, but you know our hearts.  I put it in your hands, and pray for healing.  I stood, in truth, and you’re love.  Thats all I know.  

Lord, I pray for others who have been hurt by religious folks, who have been cruel.  Heal them, show them your truth, show them, who they are in Christ.  Let them see the truth, to set them free.  I know who I am to you.  I am beloved.  I am precious in your sight.  I am more than a conqueror in Christ.  I know my gifts and callings.  I never want to treat them shabbily, or to ever make someone feel inferior.  I never want to puff myself up.  To be superior, or to treat someone shabbily.  I only want to use my gifts and callings for your glory.  To bring light, so the enemy will not deceive others.  If I have not, I ask for forgiveness.  This will make me very conscience to be careful.  

Lord, we are all on the vine, at different places, some are baby Christians, some are seasoned.  But you love us all!  This comparing in the body of Christ, judging, gets me angry, but I don’t want to sin!  

Lord, I value my salvation Father.  I never want to abuse it, by thinking grace, covers it all.  I am always aware of my part in this covenant, I agree with, by the blood of Jesus. Yes, I have works, because I know that stirs my faith.  According to your word. I know, my works won’t get me into heaven.  But I do them, for your glory, and he could not see that Lord.  He did not recognize me as a sister in Christ. Lord, help us.  The body of Christ.  Because love is missing out of so many that call themselves a Christian.

In Jesus name.  Amen.  

BUT WILT THOU KNOW, O VAIN MAN, THAT FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD?  JAMES 2:20  King James.    

And as I conclude this, I just felt the Lord remind me, that we all have sinned, and come short of His glory.  Read Romans 3:23.  KJV.  All of us have sinned, and we are still capable of sinning.  And how dare, anybody, think they are above God when it comes to judging?  Or calling someone such an ugly name.  Like that, with that kind of wording.  And connotation.  To humiliate publicly….

See, we all have sinned, and we all have been heretics, at one time or another.  In His sight.  Think about it.  Don’t forget what Christ did for you.  See the battle is the Lords.  Not mine.

This person, who I called a brother in Christ,  just happened to insult, a sister in Christ.  And I guess, the Lord knows…..this is why I write about it.

I am His servant.   Its in His hands now.

WHEN YOU LONG TO BE RESTORED ~By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

AND I WILL RESTORE TO YOU THE YEARS, THAT THE LOCUST HATH EATEN, THE CANKERWORM, AND THE CATERPILLAR, AND THE PALMERWORM MY GREAT ARMY WHICH I SENT AMONG YOU. Joel 2:25 King James. 

Don’t ever think God cannot get you a message.  He can.  He did even now, by giving me this scripture.  You know how a thought comes to you, and then a scripture will be revealed.  Making it witness in the spirit.  So I know its for you too.  I know He knows, our Hearts.  He knows, I am thinking about this lately.  Just restoration.  He knows.

Do you ever miss what could have been?  Or do you miss what you have lost, personally, emotionally, physically, spiritually?

IMG_4189You long to be restored.  You long for God to just touch you.  To have mercy on you, to get back, or give back what the devil has stolen from you.  I think about that now and then, because I have lost some things, that I don’t think I can ever get back.  But maybe they were never meant to be.  But still there are some things that I know I have lost, but because I was very misguided.

Think about that, because this is where the spiritual curses came in that stole whatever it was, that was yours, but now you see it, and now you realize you want to be restored.

What did you do, that brought those things to happen?  Was it a sin, was it a generational sin, that turned into a curse?

You know, I believe in grace, and I believe in extending grace to myself, and others, but I see for myself sometimes where I was so naive, so trusting, so dumb, that I did not see what I was doing.  I hurt myself.   I know Gods word brings light, and opened my eyes.

And when you see that, by some of the things you reap, it can open your eyes.  Sin, will bring in the devourer, and eat up your crops.  Your spiritual blessings, even your money.

IMG_1493.jpgI don’t know if all things can be restored.  I know God does have the ability to restore all things, but I don’t know if it can be done in a lifetime.  Maybe you are totally restored in Gods Kingdom.

Sometimes, it takes a lifetime, to lose what you had, because of your own negligence, and that’s hard to face sometimes.  Because truth of the matter, is nobody, likes to admit, they are their own worse enemy.  But sometimes you do have to do that.  You have to sometimes, stop and ponder.  Reflect. Pray, and repent.

Sometimes, I think about when God does teach us lessons, and thats one reason, why I do fear God.

I don’t know, just the thought, of knowing I made some mistakes, that hurt me, grieves me.  Even though, I know God forgives me, sometimes, its hard for me to forgive myself.  And I don’t want to beat myself up, by thinking about some things.  But it helps me to know, if I am remorseful, then I can get right with God.

So, I do long for God to restore unto me everything, even things I cannot even put into words myself, but God knows.  And I just need to be grateful for where I am, what I am doing, but I know I need to enjoy the little things.  Even by myself, or with those I love.

I just need to get motivated, right now, and I kind of do long for restoration.  Right now, I am craving it, longing for it, and just trusting God.

This scripture ministers to me, maybe it will you as well.

RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY OF THE SALVATION:  AND UPHOLD ME WITH THY FREE SPIRIT.  PSALMS 51:12.  King James

David had written it, after Nathan the prophet had come to him after he had did what he did to get Bathsheba.  He sinned, greatly.  Taking her husbands life.  He was jealous, and wanted her.  And David saw his sin.  He pleaded to God for mercy, because of Gods loving kindness, he asked that God would blot out his transgressions.  He felt ashamed, and if we are ashamed, and go to God, that is good.

He wanted to be clean, to wipe the sin away.  He knew, God saw that.  He knew that God wanted truth in his inner being.  So, he wanted to be washed.  And he wanted to hear joy and gladness, to rejoice.  He did not want God to cast him away, or His holy spirit.  He said, I will teach transgressors truth, I will try and convert those to Him.

Gee I relate to that.  Because if I share anything here, with anybody.  I am not trying to talk about myself, but what God has done for me.  I want someone to avoid the mistakes I made.  A young girl.  Or whoever, even an old woman.

Because he did have a broken spirit, and a contrite heart.  So have I.  On occasion.

He knew God would not despise that.  I recommend reading the entire chapter of Psalms 51.  It is a beautiful chapter, that expressed repentance.

I think if we can come to that point with broken hearts, and see, our sins, even if everything is not restored, we can at least have peace with God.  Repentance, is a good thing.  It keeps the slate clean.  I believe in it daily.  See we are spiritual houses, and we need to keep our spiritual house clean daily.

Malachi 3, talks about God rebuking the devourer.  For our sakes.  The enemy that ate up your blessings.  I know it speaks about giving, but I want you to also see, it talks about how the curse came in.  Turning to God can break the curses.  Read it from a King James.  There you will see the holiness of it, because the word is not corrupted. IMG_4785.jpeg

I wish I could share more, here, even about myself, but I cannot put into words, all that I feel, as much as I have been an open book.  But some things, I hide now.  To protect my own being.

But I do trust God, and every day that He gives me to live, I pray, its for His glory.  Restoration, is such a gift, and I think if we can appreciate what we have, and who we are in Christ, by what Christ did for us, we can receive it.  With grace.  Hope this blesses you.

I believe what Christ did on the cross for me and you, is meant for us to see restoration is possible.  We just have to search for Him.  But He will show us.  Looking at all that He did for us on the cross reminds us how precious His sacrifice was for us, in love, and that it is a gift.  One of the benefits, I believe is restoration.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

 

 

AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SIN NOT~By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4207AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND SIN NOT; FOR SOME HAVE NOT THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD:  I SPEAK THIS TO YOUR SHAME.  I CORINTHIANS 15:34 KING JAMES.  

Have you ever gone through something, and it just seemed unbearable?  It just did not seem fair?  It hurt, it hurt bad?

For myself anyway, I have gone through such things, the times, that I recall, though that really made an impact, or woke me up.  Was because I was in sin.  I was not living a life of righteousness.

I will be honest, we cannot play church.  We cannot play religious.  We must walk in love, and we must forgive.  We  must be accountable.  If we are not accountable, we do not grow.  We must have a heart to truly obey God.  These things make a difference.  And when we truly awake to truth, in Christ, and receive salvation, by accepting Christ as Lord and savior, we should realize, that grace is a gift, but don’t abuse it.

I never want to abuse grace with Christ, because I know my sins, put Him on the cross.  So, I don’t want to play with sin.  But how did I get that revelation?  Because like that scripture above states, “Some have not the knowledge of God, I speak this to your shame.”

Yes, my sins, shamed me.  And very much so!  Because I did realize that Christ cleansed me, saved me, but why go back to sin, or shame, when I could avoid it?  How?  I realized I did not have the knowledge of God….or I would not be reaping what I had.

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7  KJV. 

I reaped pain sorrow.  Unhappiness.  Loneliness.  Desperation.  Fear….

I began to search for God.  I knew of God, but I was walking the fence between the world, and God.  Not everything was a bed of roses.  I found thorns…..IMG_1344.jpg

I had to see, what pleased Him, what mattered to Him.  I began to look at this differently.  For it is a relationship.

When you care for people, you honor them, love them, nurture them.  But you don’t take the relationship for granted.  You don’t treat them like crap, and then expect them to extend grace to you in return.  It just does not work that way.  You have to care.  If you do not care, then you will reap things, you don’t want.  I did not want to do that to my Lord, my God, my heavenly Father.  Because Christ paid the price.  I began to see in my relationship with God, never to take for granted, what He did on the cross for me.

And for the record, I am not being specific in the sense, in any particular situation.  About relationships with people.  But some do not have the knowledge of God.  Or they would not do the things they do! So how do you deal with it?  All I can say is pray…..

But don’t forget while you are praying.  Remember….That we all sin, we all come short of the Glory of God.  I am so glad the Holy Spirit, convicts me of that, because I am not perfect.  I know it.  And I don’t expect perfection from anybody either.IMG_4064

I am stating this, because relationship with Christ, should never be taken for granted.  And I suppose it is also a reflection in how we treat our family, friends, etc.   What do you truly cherish?  What do you look at and see, that you cannot do without?  To me that’s God.  And family.  They are not up for any kind of compromise.

Or we can miss it.  We can easily get distracted, and deceived by the enemy, and we have to be careful.  Sin really scares me.  Because it challenges you.  It teases you, and flaunts itself, like a prize, but it is not a prize, it is deadly.  It deceives. The wages of sin, is death.

FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.  ROMANS 6:23  KJV.   

So it scares me in the sense, not only because it could bring physical death, but spiritual death, and I never want to be separated from God.  So I submit to God, resist the enemy, and I know he must flee.  But I have my part.  I will not play with sin, the thought of sinning, or losing my salvation.  I will not play with spiritual entities, or things I know, from reading my bible that are offensive to God.  I won’t.  I get convicted.  And I am so glad I do.

I do that in fear of God.  And I don’t care what anybody says.  I FEAR GOD!  Its one of the best things I can do for myself spiritually, and I know lots of sweet thinking folks, don’t understand this.  But I do.  I fear God, because I never want to lose my relationship, or abuse it, or open the door to anything that is not of God.  I don’t.  I don’t want to offend God.  How ignorant it is for people, to ignore the creator of heaven and earth.  How dumb it is to play with things that actually God is offended with.  To get Him angry, to play with their salvation.  But this is what other spiritual entities will do, they will deceive a person, and they will cause someone to lose even daily blessings.  They will sin.  Then they will call evil good, and good evil.  Yes I do fear God.  I AM AFRAID OF GOD!

IMG_2336So, learning most of the things I did the hard way, gave me the desire to receive knowledge, understanding.  Life will do that.  But only if you are committed to Christ.  And there’s a lot still, I don’t understand, but I do understand enough to stay away from sin.  Even thinking something, sometimes, brings me to my knees, and because I “know” what God says about some matters, it is enough to convict me.

It woke me up.  This scripture above says a lot.  And I love my King James bible for that reason.  I always recommend it because it is holy, and the others are corrupt. I hope it blesses you, it blessed me today.

Have a wonderful day….in Christ, I praise God….THANK YOU FATHER!!!

OH THAT MEN WOULD PRAISE THE LORD FOR THIS GOODNESS, AND FOR HIS WONDERFUL WORKS TO THE CHILDREN OF MEN!  PSALMS 107:21  KING JAMES.

Much love,

WHEN TRUST IS GONE YOU DECIDE TO WALK ALONE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2903.jpegWhen trust is gone, it is hard to gain back.  And sometimes you decide to walk alone.  I admit, I am a wounded soul.  In some ways.  Yet, I am the strongest I can be in Christ, and I have peace, and hope.  Right now. Which in some ways to me, in the natural it makes no sense.  But in the spiritual, it does.

And I pray to God not to wound anybody in return.  But I think I have.  In fact I know I have.  Because I am not open for communication.  Any more. I have gone silent. Because I won’t give in, and open myself to be hurt again, by those who think I am fair game.

IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN.  PSALMS 118:8  KJV. 

And for that, I am so very sorry.  Especially if you have had a change of heart about me, and see I was true.  But it is too late now.  The damage is done.

I truly love and wish those that I have severed relationships with. The very best.  To  live happily ever.  But I just cannot pretend, I have not been wounded.  So, I am also alienating myself, from others.

For, to be honest, my trust level in folks right now is gone.  People, may say things to me, now, and I cannot just shake it off.  I used to, I gave them the benefit of the doubt.  Extended grace.

THE LORD REDEEMETH THE SOUL OF HIS SERVANTS:  AND NONE OF THEM THAT TRUST IN HIM SHALL BE DESOLATE.  PSALMS 34:22 KJV. 

But sometimes, when things happen lately.  I don’t react.  Right away.  But a seed gets planted, and then it grows, and I realize that some folks just don’t see the error of their ways either.  Its like you write someone a letter, and they throw it away.  Or they gave you the silent treatment….

But you gave grace.  And you wonder, if you cannot communicate, what kind of friendship is that? But you realize that, after giving grace.  You realize that, after a time of reflection.  The seed grew.

It sometimes turns into a bad seed.  And they put it on another person…I don’t want to do that, because I understand hurt people, hurt others, and for that I think its best to walk alone.

So, I find myself wanting to just let go, and walk alone, with Christ, and my immediate family.IMG_4255

I wish I did not have this kind of a testimony, to be writing about.  I wish I had fruitful friendships, trusting friendships.  The kind, that would be strong.  Right now. I wish, that my relationships with people, have not come to this place, where I cannot trust.  But it is what it is.  I don’t frankly understand it.  But I accept it.

I wish no one any hurt or pain, by my decision to walk alone.  But, if I seem to bring out the worse in others, I would never want to make them unhappy by who I just am.  I saw that happen with some folks.  I seemed to bring out the worse in them, instead of the best.  It made me sad…

And some apologies have come through, by some, yet, I just don’t seem to bounce back.  To open myself to trust.  I have forgiven all.  So nothing can be said, to change my mind.  For the trust is gone.  And I am not looking to find it any more.  Its hidden in a place, where only God can touch it.

 

DSC_0027.jpgI have never been one to try and flaunt, or brag about anything about me, because if I am blessed in some things, there are things, I have suffered greatly for so, so I don’t understand when someone thinks, I don’t grieve about some things.  I am always happy to be on the sidelines, I don’t need the glory.  I want God to have it. 

FOR THOU ART MY HOPE, O LORD GOD:  THOU ART MY TRUST FROM MY YOUTH.  PSALMS 71:5  KJV. 

So, when they get jealous enough to compare.  I don’t understand that. I just know Christ helps me.  Anything, I have, everything I have, is due to God, blessing me, and I thank Him.

When someone tells me that they don’t respect me.  I believe them.  When someone tells me they are jealous of me, I believe them.  

And I just rebuke that in the name of Jesus.  Why?  Because I only had the best heart for these individuals, and this is the end result from them.  It is not from God. And they know it!  But that’s between them and God now, and the battle is His, I am letting go. 

O MY GOD, I TRUST IN THEE: LET ME NOT BE ASHAMED, LET NOT MINE ENEMIES TRIUMPH OVER ME.  PSALMS 25:2  KJV.

I do forgive, because I don’t want poison in my soul….

IMG_3449.jpeg

But see, it is that trust that is gone.  That scares me.  Gives me a red alert.  I did not realize how much I could take by some people, I called friends, who I really loved dearly, but I cannot take any more.  So I choose now to walk alone…

Trust is such a precious attribute.  Be careful with it.  Don’t abuse it.

COMMIT THY WAY UNTO THE LORD: TRUST ALSO IN HIM; AND HE SHALL BRING IT TO PASS.  PSALMS 37:5  KJV

My circle, is small now.  My guard is up, my armor of God is on securely, and my trust is gone.

YE THAT FEAR THE LORD, TRUST IN THE LORD:  HE IS THEIR HELP AND THEIR SHIELD.  PSALMS 115:11.  KJV.  

I don’t know if I want to trust anyone ever again.  But God.  And don’t get me wrong, I am not having a pity party, about it.  I am actually feeling just a sense of relief.  I don’t understand it, but I am.  I feel like a weight has been lifted off.

Like my eyes are completely opened, spiritually, if that makes sense, and I am actually grateful, I have the strength to walk away.  You know like after a long storm, and the sunshine comes out, and you just can see things more clearly.  And you just thank God.  Because you never want to be tossed to and fro, by anyone.

Because you see things…..  Things that you may look at and see, but after a while, you realize it is not healthy.  For them, or you.

Knowing God, trusting God, has given me discernment.

There is something so comforting in just relying on God.  It activates my faith.  So though, my trust level in others is gone.  It is intense, with God.  I have faith.  And trust in my Lord.

BLESSED IS THAT MAN THAT MAKETH THE LORD HIS TRUST, AND RESPECTETH NOT THE PROUD, NOR SUCH AS TURN ASIDE TO LIES.  PSALMS 40:4  KJV.  

I want to be careful to change the tone here in my writings, the subject matter.  I am closing these doors.  And I think I have spent too much time thinking about them, writing about them, and grieving.  Time for the joy of the Lord to be my strength.

I WILL SAY OF THE LORD, HE IS MY REFUGE AND MY FORTRESS: MY GOD; IN HIM WILL I TRUST.  PSALMS 91:2 KJV. 

Have a blessed Fathers day, everybody.

HEAL+THY+SELF IN CHRIST =  JESUS GIVES ME HEALTHY SELF.

ISAIAH 53:5, I claim that for you too….
