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


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

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

BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE:  NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR:  BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  ISAIAH 59:1-2.  KJV. 

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

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

Here, in Exodus 32:33 it tells us:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It makes me sad.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Much love, Elena Ramirez 

 

 

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Isn’t that stealing from yourself?

Just a thought,

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


IMG_2616HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD….

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WATCHING THE COMPANIONS YOU WALK WITH ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3138WATCHING THE COMPANIONS YOU WALK WITH ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
I learned at an early age that people can influence you. They can corrupt you, they can ruin your life, if you don’t get wise.
 
Wisdom, sometimes, it does not come till much later in our lives. Because we have to learn through our mistakes. We learn through our sins, we learn through the lack of progress…
 
At least I did.
 
Anyway, I feel like I need to write this for someone. To warn you. There is….
 
Someone, that just is not good for you. You know it, but you need to know what God says…. Because you keep going with it. Maybe you love that person, maybe you keep forgiving…. But the bottom line is this person is destructive, and will be the ruin of you.
 
You are unequally yoked with this person. There is no understanding, or respect to you, for your love for God. You need to get away….
 
Scripture tells us to not be unequally yoked with an unbeliever. I could write the scripture down here for you.
 
But you need to start searching, and growing in the Lord.
 
Get a King James bible. Then get a concordance, a good Bible King James bible app. Put in the words, “unequally yoked.” Or righteousness, darkness, also as options. To find the scripture. (clue its in II Corinthians)
 
Keep growing my friends, and be careful who you walk with….
 

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I want you to think about that.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings, and love, in Christ, 

Elena Ramirez

DON’T EVER LOSE HOPE ~ GOOD FRIDAY THOUGHTS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2198.jpg

 

DON’T EVER LOSE HOPE….

 
Good Friday…. Just think about it, when Christ died, I am sure, the disciples, were very sad, very despondent, and they lost hope. We can lose hope. I know, sometimes I do, as well, and even though, I know Christ is my Lord, and savior, I do get hopeless.
 
But, there is something within my spirit, by the Holy Spirit, that gives me hope, even knowing, the History. Knowing, He was resurrected. Knowing, right now, at this time, He went to hell, and got the Keys from hell, and cancelled the devils legal right to attack me.
 
Did you know that, during that time, this is when He got the keys to cancel the enemies plan….For you, and me? At this time….He went to hell and took back the right to steal our souls. By getting those keys. And then He was resurrected. He came back to life. It is documented, and then they knew, we all Knew. Only Christ can give us life…….
 
How precious our salvation is. How precious our hope is. Friends, be reminded, today, how beautiful our savior is, and what He did for us. Truly a gift from God. He gives us hope. And so much more, have a blessed Good Friday.
 
Its also my sons, birthday, and I thank God for the hope I see in him as well.
 
Let us hold onto our hope, for the joy, only Christ can give. Don’t let it go, don’t get hopeless. Rejoice, our savior, died, and was resurrected to give us life…..HALLELUJAH!!!!!
 
DO NOT EVER LOSE HOPE!
 
AND WHEN I SAW HIM, I FELL AT HIS FEET AS DEAD. AND HE LAID HIS RIGHT HAND UPON ME, SAYING UNTO ME, FEAR NOT: I AM THE FIRST AND THE LAST: I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE, AMEN; AND HAVE THE KEYS OF HELL AND OF DEATH. REVELATION 1:17-18. KJV.
