INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THE SPIRIT OF JEALOUSY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Please Note:  I had published this, but deleted it.  I felt the Lord telling me to remove it  but now, I am republishing it.  I have been dealing with things lately, that seem so overwhelming.  But I am trusting God.  I have not been making good decisions, in some ways.  With people, or with trust issues. God knows.  But I am dealing with things spiritually, and it all seems too much for me.  But I am seeking God.  This, is something I hope will help someone.  This I write as an outlet.  Again its not meant to hurt anybody if they read it.  I would never want to do that.  But some things in the spiritual realm cannot be reasoned, or understood.  They need Gods attention.  This is why I serve Him.  Because I cannot always do things, but He can.  

Instructions on how to deal with the spirit of jealousy.  Why do I say one needs instructions on this matter?  Because God dealt with it.  And He is always our example.  Recently, and I will not go into details, I witnessed the spirit of jealousy.  And I knew I had to pray.  I became silent.  I knew it was wrong, but I did not know how to deal with it.  And I prayed fervently for guidance, but also for this person.  God answered me quickly.  With instruction and His counsel. Because I prayed in love.  Because I submitted to God, resisted the devil.  

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD.  RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7  KJV.  

I believe this is the instruction and counsel God gave me, so I am sharing it here.   

There Are Two Different Kinds Of Jealousy:  

A good kind, that comes from God.  And an evil kind that comes from the devil:  

HOW ART HOU FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O lucifer, SON OF THE MORNING!  HOW ART THOU CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND, WHICH DIDST WEAKEN THE NATIONS!  FOR THOU HAST SAID IN THINE HEART, I WILL ASCENT INTO HEAVEN, I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD:  I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH.  I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS; I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.  YET THOU SHALT BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL, TO THE SIDES OF THE PIT. ISAIAH 14:12-15  King James.  

So, do you, see the devils jealousy concerning God in this? 

The good kind of jealousy, comes from God in the sense, that He is very jealous, when it comes to anything, or anybody, trying to steal His glory, or in protecting His people.

FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE, EVEN A JEALOUS GOD.  DEUTERONOMY 4:24  King James.    

He is fierce, when dealing with this, because He dealt with it, when it came to the devil.  In the beginning.  He dealt with it, and kicked out the devil, from heaven, because He would not allow any kind of strife, that stemmed from jealousy, in His Kingdom.  

And because I know God, and I know His personality in this matter, I understand, why He would not allow that kind of jealousy in His Kingdom, because it does take away His glory.  

So if he does not allow it, neither should we…. 

GOD IS JEALOUS, AND THE LORD REVENGETH; THE LORD REVENGETH AND IS FURIOUS; THE LORD WILL TAKE VENGEANCE ON HIS ADVERSARIES, AND HE RESERVETH WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES.  NAHUM 1:2  KJV.   

The bad kind of jealousy, from the devil, tries to puff itself up.  It can become pride. It tries to steal Gods glory.  It tries to have what God has, by using tactics, that are not of love.  It tries to manipulate, and that is another sign.  Because it tries to control.  Thats not of God.  

It does try and take away His peace.  The peace of God, because the jealousy will always rear up its ugly head like a snake.  You cannot trust jealousy. It does deceive. It does make itself, a form of idolatry, and God will not allow that, because of His great love.  Because He is love.  But if you allow it, by not recognizing it, you are sinning. 

If one studies the attributes of love.  It does not puff itself up, love from God, it does not manipulate, it does not wish, bad, or hate anyone.  It always forgives.  It does not seek to control, or torment, or be a false witness etc.  Lies etc.  It is not counterfeit.

Love from God is not counterfeit, if the principles of God are applied.   But one must see. 

Jealousy, that is not of God, will do that.  It opens doors, spiritually, that are not of God.  So it must be dealt with.  One might not even intend any ill, or evil, but because that spirit is allowed, it brings curses, that are not of God.  It is a spiritual principle.  Like what goes up, comes down.  Well jealousy, brings curses.  The hedge of protection, in pleading the blood of Jesus, and by departing from that, will close those doors to curses.

THE LORD WILL NOT SPARE HIM, BUT THEN THE ANGER OF THE LORD AND HIS JEALOUSY SHALL SMOKE AGAINST THAT MAN, AND ALL THE CURSES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK SHALL LIE UPON HIM, AND THE LORD SHALL BLOT OUT HIS NAME FROM UNDER HEAVEN.  DEUTERONOMY 29:20  KJV.    

Please note, from this verse, salvation can be lost.  The name blotted out of the Book of Life.

One has to look at the perspective, of whether or not they have the jealousy.  Or if they are the object of the jealousy.  And deal with it.  

How does one deal with it?  First of all pray.  Seek Gods wisdom, in this matter. But read on, and receive more understanding.  

So, let us look at it first from the perspective of the person, who has the jealousy.  

The jealousy, will make someone take their eyes off of God, and His promises.  It is a strange form of idolatry.  They may not even realize it, but it is a distraction.  It is making them, look at the person, as a source of their problem.  They may not mean to do that.  Because they may love that person.  But, when they begin to compare their life, to that person, in their attributes, qualifications, things they possess, people in their lives, they will compare.  Jealousy is evident. 

They may see themselves in a very low light, where they diminish their own attributes, or they lose their own self esteem, because they are constantly looking at that person, and it makes them feel inadequate.  They are looking at that person, and not realizing it, taking their eyes off of God.  The devil will use that against them.  

This is not of God. Again, I will repeat this is not of God!  

They inadvertently, begin to see that person, in a negative light, and as much as they may love someone, they cannot help but compare, with jealousy.  

This is not healthy for someone to do this, because the spiritual soul ties, blocks their own blessings.  Blocks their own gifts.  Blocks doors opening for them, because they are looking at someone, with jealousy, and not totally looking at God.  

This I believe is one of the greatest sins, the devil could try to deceive someone in, because he does not want people to be fulfilled, or blessed.  This is again, one of his characteristics, because he was jealous of God.  

I think for the Christian, who does not recognize this spirit, of jealousy, is playing with their salvation.  Not only are they blocking their own personal blessings.  I think they could lose their salvation.  After all, the devil was in heaven, and he got kicked out of heaven, because of jealousy.

When one sees, that, one should distance themselves from the object of jealousy, and run to God.  Run to the throne of God.  Don’t walk.  Run!  Repent.  See the danger of it.  Because it can again, open doors that are not of God.  And one never wants to do that.  

Doors cannot open from God, if this sin, of jealousy is evident.  It will block, the blessings of God.  It is sin.  To be jealous.  

Prayers will not be heard.  He says iniquities separates us, so He will not hear.  So you have to repent and depart from anything that will cause that jealousy.  

BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS, HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR.  

ISAIAH 59:2  KJV

You don’t have to be in someones life, to love them.  And always love.  Even if you love from a distance, with good thoughts.  Prayers. Walk in love. This is how Christ said we would be known by, our love.

But if it is something, that is not dealt with, you have to see, love is the greatest sacrifice, to want the best for someone.  So repent, and do what’s right.  

Leaving someone alone, is a sacrifice….  

As Christ did.  See, He loved us so much, that He paid the penalty of our sins, so we could escape the legal penalty of sin. By giving His life, that was holy to stop the penalty of sin. Without Him, without His sacrifice, the enemy would have a victory, a legal right to attack, but you have your part in avoiding this sin, of jealousy, by recognizing it, departing from it, and submitting to God totally.  Resisting the devil.

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL. I JOHN 3:8 KJV.   

So, if you are the object of someones jealousy…

You have to see, that the best thing, one must do, on your part, is to distance themselves from that person.  Because real love, does not want to make someone unhappy.  Real love, prays for that person.  Because if you really love, someone you don’t want to make someone miserable.  You do not want to hurt them.  By staying in a relationship, or friendship, that constantly makes someone reminded, that you have what they want.  

Love does not torment people.  To torment.  For the sake of tormenting.  That is pure evil.  Love does not provide a way or set up a path, to make someone jealous.  So you have to gain strength, and walk away.  

I have seen jealousy in my own life.  And it has grieved me.  I have not always recognized it.  On my part, or on others.  But, God has given me discernment, and I do understand it.  Now. I do understand, that if it is not dealt with, it can bring unhappiness, block blessings, bring curses, and it is not healthy. 

But I have also learned, that if you love people.  You are happy for them.  You don’t compare your life to theirs.  You don’t compete.  You don’t try to make them unhappy, because you are unhappy.  You don’t try and put a guilt trip on someone, because they are blessed.  

One has to see themselves what they have done, to make their own unhappiness, and not make others a focal point of their own mistakes or sins.    

You have to recognize who God is, and how He dealt with this, and you have to see, its not healthy spiritually.  

When I was younger, perhaps, I was jealous of folks.  It seemed it brought out the worse in me.  To lower my self-esteem.  To always compare.  That was immaturity on my part.  I grew out of it.  Life taught me that.  My own sins, have shown me the error of my ways.  I still grieve because of my sins.  

I did come to a place, though, where I realized in life, there will always be prettier, more blessed, more talented, more richer,  more people, who have things and attributes, gifts, characteristics that I do not have. And I don’t have to have something that does not belong to me.  By striving for it, by jealousy.    

But that does not discount, who God has made me.  I am blessed.  In my own right. Because of His Righteousness.

I don’t have to compare myself to them, because I am actually happy, for people, now when they are blessed. I see the fruit of it.  I have joy, for others.  I don’t compare my life, to their life.  Even in the body of Christ.  

Especially, in the body of Christ.  Because that is not allowed in Gods Kingdom.  And so if you are jealous on earth, I think again, you are playing with your salvation.  

So, I don’t go about, trying, to make them feel bad, for having something I don’t have.  Or have. I recognize, life is a journey.  And I always have to try, to be in that place where I can hear from God, and obey God.  Because His ways, are the way, of truth, and life.  John 14:6  King James.  

I know we all have gifts and callings, that God has placed in our lives, but they cannot be fulfilled, if the sin, of jealousy is there.  It will block the blessings.  And if you love someone, truly someone, you have to let them go, if you see jealousy on your side, or on theirs.  Because that is not love.  That is not love that comes from God.  

It does not mean, it is forever.  It does not mean, it cannot be rectified.  Or even final. Perhaps, the friendship, or relationship, can be healed or mended, by time, by letting God into the situation, totally, by repenting, and by loving enough to let someone be.  

Acknowledging the sin.  Being honest about it.  Letting God bless you, because you are obedient. 

By, literally setting them free.  Like the saying goes;

“If you love someone, or something set them free.  If they belong to you, they will return.”  

If not, well it was not meant to be by God.  

One will see, it was not the will of God.  And folks, one needs to be mindful of that, by not trying to manipulate people or situations, just because you love, or want them in your life.  

In that time, of separation, quietness, God can bless you.  God can open the doors for you.  But you have to let go of the sin of this, to receive the blessing.  

Even here I received this instruction, because I had to be silent.  I could not react to that situation, because I could have damaged it far more then what it was.  I know myself.  I have a sharp tongue. But because I love this person, and more than anything, I love God, I managed self-control, to pray.  To be silent.  

To know that jealousy is a green eyed monster, that is the devil.  

AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND satan, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:  HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.  REVELATION 12:9  King James.  

By letting the person go, you are taking the first step.  Because then you are totally submitting to God, by recognizing the sin of this, and asking Him to change it.  The distraction of that person, is no longer there, and the healing can begin.  For you, and that person. 

If its crossed a line though, where there is abuse, verbal, or physical, though, one should forgive, but one cannot forget.  And in any area of jealousy one should forgive.  But….

It is hard to trust, anybody, when these lines have been crossed.  Into personal space, or spiritual space.  

When one apologizes, it should be, where, one is not reminded of that because forgiveness is there.  One should not apologize and then repeat the offense.  Because then its just lip service.  But it should not be brought up again, to be used against a person.  

So proceed or withdraw with caution.  If one is truly using discernment from God, they will recognize the spirit of jealousy.  It may take some time.  It does not always manifest itself. But if it is there, it will reveal itself, sooner or later.  Even in the strangest of conditions.  I have seen it time, and time again. 

If someone tells you, they are jealous.  Of you, or who you are. Believe them.  See, you cannot confuse, that for being happy for someone because it comes from a place of comparing.  And that is not healthy spiritually, for either party.  

SUFFER NOT THY MOUTH TO CAUSE THY FLESH TO SIN; NEITHER SAY THOU BEFORE THE ANGEL, THAT IT WAS AN ERROR:  WHEREFORE SHOULD GOD BE ANGRY AT THY VOICE, AND DESTROY THE WORK OF THINE HANDS.  ECCLESIASTES 5:6.  KJV.  

In this scripture I see, admitting the truth in this, not denying the jealousy, will be the beginning to set someone free.   

Don’t ever take someones weakness, in matter like this, and use it.  Against them.  Don’t flaunt your attributes, or whatever it is, that person, is struggling with, and try to make them feel inadequate.  Because they are jealous. I think God would and could punish someone, for trying to use that against them.  Don’t play with these spiritual matters.  

Fear God.  I do. 

Thats why I think one should depart from situations like that.

SO WILL I MAKE MY FURY TOWARD THEE TO REST, AND MY JEALOUSY SHALL DEPART FROM THEE, AND I WILL BE QUIET, AND WILL BE NO MORE ANGRY.  EZEKIEL 16:42  KJV.  

Just remember this, that kind of jealousy is not of God.  

Any child of God, who wants God to bless them, or that person, they love, should depart.  So the devil can depart. And pray, always constantly pray for someone.  See the enemy, does come to kill, steal and destroy.  Don’t give him a legal right to attack you, or someone else.  

And because I recently seen this, and though, I love this person dearly, it has made me pray for this person, more fervently, because I love this person, and I would never want to make this person unhappy, or sorrowful, by comparing myself to this person, or this person, to compare herself to me.  I want this person, happy, blessed, fulfilled, in Christ.  And as much as it grieves me to let this person go, I will, so the enemy will not have any place in this matter.  

It just is not healthy, for myself, as well, spiritually, to think my happiness would make them miserable, so I would rather, just walk away, and see if God can heal this.  Because if I don’t… Every time, I would see this person, I would think is this person o.k. now, or am I still a thorn in this persons side?  For this person to be jealous.  I never want to be used by the enemy, to bring jealousy, or unhappiness to anyone.  Thats not who I am.  In Christ. 

I know God always uses things I go through, to help others, and I hope it helps.  This is why I write.  I am just someone who can and will be obedient to God, to share truth.  And truth, brings light.

This is my way of trying to heal my own heart.  My own sadness.  By writing about this.  It is not meant to hurt anybody.  Or to make someone feel bad.  This is a deep rooted matter, that can hurt any of us.  I am just trying to be brave enough, to express this so it can help others.  And yes again, myself. For healing spiritually. 

Get a King James bible.  Look up scriptures on jealousy, understand Gods perspective in this, and let this be your guide.  Understand how God saw jealousy, and be healed.  Things can heal, but you always have your part. 

Hope this helps someone.  God bless you, always come from a place of repentance, and a turning away of any sin, so you can have Gods love rest on you.  

So jealousy can depart.

HOW TO DISTINGUISH THE SPIRIT OF “DELUSION” ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2Have you ever met someone, or found within yourself that spirit of delusion?  The spirit, that thinks it’s right.  That is so argumentative, and determined because frankly, they believe what they see, say, and believe.  But it’s wrong.  And its hard for that person to admit, or to see, for whatever reason….

That if you presented truth to them, they would reject it.  The facts, may be quite evident.  But they cannot distinguish between black or white.  They will call evil good, and good evil.  It does not make sense.

So one can conclude, that they are delusional. 

Well that comes from a lie.  The father of lies, the enemy.  The devil. And it is quite sad, when one knows truth, but one does see, folks, who would rather believe the lie.  Would rather, pursue something, but it is a falsehood.

And that’s always the goal of the enemy.  To deceive.  To make something look like a counterfeit.  To fool someone totally.  And that is a spirit of delusion.

The King James scriptures, here, talk about it.

REMEMBER YE NOT, THAT, WHEN I WAS YET WITH YOU, I TOLD YOU THESE THINGS?  AND NOW YE KNOW WHAT WITHOLDETH THAT HE MIGHT BE REVEALED IN HIS TIME.  

FOR THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY, DOTH ALREADY WORK; ONLY HE WHO NOW LETTETH WILL LET, UNTIL HE BE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY.  

AND THEN SHALL THAT WICKED BE REVEALED, WHOM THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH, AND SHALL DESTROY WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING:  

EVEN HIM, WHOSE COMING IS AFTER THE WORKING OF satan WITH ALL POWER AND SIGNS AND LYING WONDERS,  AND WITH ALL DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH;

BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.  

AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE:  THAT THEY ALL MIGHT BE DAMNED WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, BUT HAD PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.  

II THESSALONIANS 2:5-12 KING JAMES.  

Gee that last verse scares me, as it should you.  Because one is damned, who does not believe the truth, and who has pleasure in unrighteousness.  Yes, it is a spirit of delusion, if you rejoice in unrighteousness.  Only you and God can answer that.  The devil will not tell you that truth, because again, he wants to deceive you.

IN WHOM THE god OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST, WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM.  II CORINTHIANS 4:4  KJV.  

So be careful who you ask…..

And you really have to understand the root of it.  Because it can come from many sources.  It could be generational.  It could be because someone did not pursue truth, to begin with.  It could be, someone was taught to lie, to be deceptive, so that the spirit of delusion came to that person very easily.  But it always comes from denying God, and His truth, His gospel.

Again, are you using a King James?  Thats the first step to defeating the spirit of delusion.  

So, one must understand, it is very manipulative.  It is very controlling, the spirit of delusion.

In any event, it does steal from a persons soul, it does deceive, and it does cripple a person spiritually, so they cannot have real discernment, unless they make it right with God.  They cannot see clearly, because the spirit of delusion, clouds their thinking…

But one can be cured, or healed from that spirit of delusion, to see the truth.

By repentance.  By acknowledging one may have that spirit of delusion.  Because frankly, they do not have the mind of Christ in matters.  And only Christ, can deliver someone.  Yet, it also takes wisdom, from God, to have discernment in such matters.  So one must repent, and accept Christ as Lord and savior.  To be delivered.  One must desire, and love truth.  Gods truth.  Yearn for it, so one will not be consumed by the lie, and perish.

I guess, I see it, because I have had poor judgement in the past.  I had it, when I was not a true Christian.  Sure, I believed in God, but I did not know his truth, like I do now, and I was very prone to being deceived.  I don’t think that spirit of delusion left me, until, I totally submitted to God, resisted the enemy, and he left.  I had to see the error of my own ways.  Letting go of pride, to think, I could do it my way…..

FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?  BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.  I CORINTHIANS 2:16  KJV.  

So, in some matters, I suppose, I was delusional, especially, in my youth.  because I was not in the truth.  Experience in life, can show you the fruit of that.  When you are not in the truth, of who God is, and what He expects, its very easy, to have a spirit of delusion.

But now, I am a little bit more wiser.  A lot more submissive to God, totally, in fact, as I state it here.  Because I fear God.  And fear of God, can keep you out of trouble.  Not only spiritually, but in life.

I understand His commandments, and law.  I am not perfect.  I know, I can sin, and fall short of His glory, but I don’t take grace for granted.  But this is a gift He gives in understanding.  It’s not me, its Him, because I let Him rule my spirit, in His truth.  And I am very aware, to not try and sin, or to do something that is morally wrong, or deceptive.  I always pray for discernment, so I will not have a spirit of delusion.  I understand one does reap what they sow.  And no, its not karma.  Quit saying that, if you do, because its not King James scriptural.

Have you ever met someone, and you got good or bad vibes from them?  Well thats your gut instinct.  Also known by the Holy spirit.  If you have submitted to God.  But if it is led by God, you will see the good.  But also understand what is evil, and not good, according to His truth, a King James bible.

If the spirit is bad, it will seek company with those who likely, do not know God, and do things that are quite questionable.  Because in retrospect, their spirit is led by the devil.  It will blind someones good judgment, to believe a lie about someone.  

But you always have to see, is there something there, that could be blocking discernment or understanding, to give the spirit of delusion?  

God tells us…

 I ALSO WILL CHOOSE THEIR DELUSIONS, AND WILL BRING THEIR FEARS UPON THEM; BECAUSE WHEN I CALLED, NONE DID ANSWER; WHEN I SPAKE, THEY DID NOT HEAR:  BUT THEY DID EVIL BEFORE MINE EYES, AND CHOSE THAT IN WHICH I DELIGHTED NOT.  ISAIAH 66:4  KING JAMES.  

Like the saying goes, misery, loves company.  And to be delusional, is frankly a miserable state of mind, to be in.  One needs the mind of Christ.

I am scratching the surface, here, but you have to understand, how important it is to be in Gods truth.  Or you can be deceived.  

Again, folks, I highly recommend a King James bible.  You cannot be receiving the mind of Christ, if something you are using, is counterfeit, because it has been corrupted.  Get in there, and search, and search.  Keep praying, and repenting, till you see the truth.  And you will.  Then you will understand, the spirit of delusion.

You can yourself, be delusional.  But one must understand, it is a principle, God has placed.  And if one is not right with God, well they will have a spirit of delusion.

Hope this helps someone.  And just remember, if you see someone who is delusional, who does believe a lie.  Don’t argue with them.  Let them go.  Don’t get caught up in their strife.  There is a strange spirit in that.  

Just let them be….sure pray for them.  But walk away. 

In Christ, totally, and His love,

Elena Ramirez

THE MEASURE OF SUCCESS IS DETERMINED BY GOD NOT MONEY ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2The Prosperity message, has been going on now for a while.  Name it and claim it, Holler for a Dollar, and Just call it forth…  

I despise that message.  I despise, the distortion it brings to the body of Christ.  

When we should be seeking His face, not His hand.  I wonder how much God hates it?   I should probably not use that word despise, but I do dislike it immensely.  Why?  

Because when its taught from the pulpit, and it puts off the Salvation message, it totally misses the point, that Christ gave us as a mandate.  To seek the lost, and to preach the gospel.  

When I hear gospel messages, and it is not derived from Holy King James word, I just shake my head.  Because it then becomes the blind leading the blind.  I don’t want success if it comes from being disobedient to God, or by twisting something, manipulating it, to work.  Thats wrong, thats evil to me.  

When the prosperity message takes the focus off of the salvation message, it does not teach someone, to seek God, or to see the error of their ways, or to be humble, repentant.   To grow, not only now, but for eternity, it misses the whole point, of what Christ did for us, and can do for us.  By the cross. Its kind of flakey.

Success, hmmm, I wonder, if this is why I have not found it?  Because I see I am definitely not like those in the body of Christ who are successful.

Well anyway, according to the worlds ways.  To those who know me, or to those who might read my writings, they might ask, why should I read her writings?  What success does she have?

I don’t know, maybe someone who would see me, or meet me, would not see success.

You might even see someone who is broken.  You might not even give me a second thought.  You probably could take me or leave me.  See, that has happened to me, but I don’t care.  I mean I care, but I don’t waste my time, on people, who do not celebrate me, in Christ, but just tolerate me.  

Though, I can never compare myself to Him, or what He does, I understand that.  To know He was rejected, according to the standard of the world. They saw Christ that way too.  In a lot of ways….

FOR HE SHALL GROW UP BEFORE HIM AS A TENDER PLANT, AND AS A ROOT OUT OF A DRY GROUND:  HE HATH NO FORM NOR COMELINESS; AND WHEN WE SHALL SEE HIM, THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM.  HE IS DESPISED AND REJECTED OF MEN, A MAN OF SORROWS, AND ACQUAINTED WITH GRIEF:  AND WE HID AS IT WERE OUR FACES FROM HIM; HE WAS DESPISED, AND WE ESTEEMED HIM NOT.  SURELY HE HATH BORNE OUR GRIEFS, AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS; YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED.  BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.  ISAIAH 53:2-5

I love these scriptures, that describe my Lord.  Because by His stripes we are healed.  As we get to know Him.  Body, soul, and spirit.  

But before I truly knew Him…. I did not understand.

The thing is, though, I have always strived to use my gifts and callings, to open doors. Searching for success.  I have tried to always have a learning spirit, to learn technology, to learn just the basics.  I wish I had gotten a better education, I know education can open doors.  Doors have not opened for me.

From my music, to my writings now, I have tried to look for the gimmick, to make success mine.  That was the wrong perspective by the way….  

But I don’t do that now.  Because I realized a few years ago, even with my writing, that I have a gift, to express myself, and that gift is meant to draw others to Christ.  

Freely, I have been given, freely, I must give.

I never want to abuse my gifts, He has given me.  In fact, I want my gifts to bring glory to Him.  He gave me the gift of life, and I will use my life, to bring glory to Him.  

Its not always easy, there are times, I have to have courage, be bold, step out of my comfort zone, fight the devil, with the word of God, and try to bring Him into it.  Sometimes yelling at folks, step away from the fire.  But I have found if I am obedient to that, He gives me the courage.  How I understand it, sometimes amazes me, but He shows me.  From moment to moment.   

I try….To explain, who I was before I met Him, to tell others what He did for me, and does for me.  Life is a process, of growing, and if you stop growing especially in Christ, you fail to have success.  

I don’t care if you have money, or if you even had a gift to make money, if thats your only goal in life, and you put people away, or your own family, and mostly God, you are a failure.  

Thats why I don’t peddle the word of God.  I don’t ask for donations, or an offering.  I don’t try to manipulate you, to give me something, so God can bless you.  Some would call that a seed offering.  I remember years ago, my mom used to write to a certain ministry.  She poured her heart out, and when they wrote back.  They said nothing about her need, or even tried to talk to her.  They just asked for money.  It so turned me off.

God has shown me so much, that if someone just really took the time, to be my friend in Christ, I could show them so much.  About God, about His Holy King James truth, to pray for them.  To show them….

So their life could be enhanced, blessed.  But life is so funny, when it comes to people.  They come and go.  They seek you, if you have something to give, but then they discard you, when you don’t do it their way, or you see, they are not accountable to God, or others.  Or you stop giving to them…

Because it convicts them.  Nobody likes others to tell you the truth.  They may admire it for a while, but if you tell them the truth, then you are a jerk.  For lack of a better word.  

I have concluded, at this time in my life.  If I want success, I don’t look for it in people, or in money, or what I have, or don’t have.  Financially, etc.

What I do look at…. is how much have I grown in Christ?  What kind of fruit do I have?  Is it Godly, or is it of the world?  What do I have to do in obedience to God, to be a better person?  What experiences have taught me about people, and yes God?  

I so trust God.  I so know, who He is.  And I don’t try to say that in a bragging way, but in a way, that makes me realize I fear Him, as well as Love Him.  His ways, are not our ways.  But I trust Him. I know Him.  

Its been hard, financially sometimes, but through it, I have seen God provide for me.  I never lack.  I can’t do great things with money, right now, if I could I would hope I would show and give more, do more etc.  

But I have learned, in seeking God therein is the true success.  

I won’t compete with people, or follow people.  It is a waste of energy.  

I am grateful.  To each their own.  I don’t try to do things my way.  But His way, for He is the way the truth and life.  John 14:6  I think I learned that the hard way….

I still dream, and hope, and pray the next chapter in my life, God willing will open doors, but I am grateful, for who He is, and I do seek His face not His hand, and it makes a difference for me.  I can honestly say, if doors do not open, but I can live a life, in peace, and joy, healthy, in the small things, I can be content.  With my family, then I am blessed.  But God has to be front and center, in our home, and in my life.  I want more of His presence, and love, guidance, with just confidence of who He is, and His Kingdom. I long to be refreshed…..

The above photo, is a door, my husband has been working on.  It is in our laundry room. It was warped, it was unpainted, and quite ugly.  We thought of just disposing of it.  But my husband worked on it so much, applied love, some ingenuity to it, and now its a beautiful door.  I tease my hubby and call him the “door healer.”  Because he saw the potential in it, and did not give up on it.  I see the “cross” on it….

See, I long for that, to know Christ in that way, because He does not give up on me, and I won’t give up on Him.  Has nothing to do with money, or people, but because of who He is, that I find life worth living, and being successful in Him.  

Just my thoughts today….

THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2942.jpegFOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ARE OPEN UNTO THEIR PRAYERS:  BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THEM THAT DO EVIL.  I PETER 3:12 KING JAMES.

Yesterday, I told a famous young actress, (name withheld) to fear God.  I told her that was the best advice I could give her, because there is a hell, and if she did not get right, that could be her eternal future.  

Because she did something, and I won’t mention it here, but she did something that was very offensive, and very obscene with the Holy word of God.  I told her to repent.  I told her, to get a King James bible.  I also told her to be quiet, because she has been getting advice from the devil, and it showed.  

I hope she heeded my advice.  Because God is not mocked.  Where do people, get off, thinking they can say foul things about God, and they won’t reap what they sow?

It can leave a bad taste in your mouth.  I don’t know.  I just know, I want to please God.  

I just know, that I can trust Him.  But we always have our part.  

In that same day, I had a discussion, with a brother in Christ.  A man of God.  But we seemed to have a difference of opinion about grace, and repentance.  

I come from a place, where I am grateful for grace.  But I never want to abuse it.  And I see some folks, and I am not judging this brother, but I see, that many times, people rely on grace.  Or they think grace is a license to sin.  And that’s so wrong.  But they are not accountable for their own actions.  Which can turn into offenses, or sin.  

So because of that, I believe in daily repentance.  I know, I have my part, and I always want to be on the same page.  With God.

I believe in asking God to forgive me, daily.  Because I do fall short.  And I never want to get to that place though, where I think I am there, or I have made it.  Because then I would have no place to grow, or to learn, or to expect to see Gods hand.  See, I think there is a danger, of taking things for granted.  Taking God for granted.  Even taking people for granted.  He lifts the humble, but turns from the proud. 

We talked about fearing God.  And you know, I do fear God greatly.  I know some day I will leave this earth.  But when I do, I want to hear well done, good and faithful servant.  I don’t want to hear.  I never knew you. 

It just made me realize even more, how much I love the Lord.  It made me realize, every day I have to prove to Him, that I love Him.  Thats the least, I can do.  He did His part on that cross for me.  He gave His life, sacrificed for me, His life, to take my sins away.  He suffered, greatly.  For my sins. Which were many.  

And I still fall short.  I see it.  I am not trying to discount, anything He did for me, but I am human.  I have had poor judgement.  And I just want to be in His good “graces”  but I want to have that discernment, to do whats right.  His eyes are over us.  And I want Him to hear my prayers.  But I know, God is not mocked.  I know, He is against them, that do evil.  

I try to tell people, boldly, this.  But many times, it just falls on deaf ears, and it is not received.  I hope, I plant a seed at least.  But only God can make that grow.  

I don’t ever want to come from a legal place.  And hit his people with the bible, or be legalistic.  But, you know, God is a legal God, and His law, His commandments do need to be acknowledged, known, and honored.  And I see so many Christians, who do not even think they have to honor the law, because they think they are free from that.  The only law friends we are free from is the law of sin, and death.  Look it up.  It is in Romans 8:2 King James…. 

I am aware of my words.  I am aware of Gods laws.  Things, He has implemented as principles.  Like what goes up comes down.  Like, we reap what we sow.  And nobody wants to reap curses.  But there are consequences to things we say and do.

I try to speak life, and I do try and walk in love.  I don’t want to be a flaky Christian.  I am a different kind of Christian, it seems.  I do seek truth.  I do seek to know His King James word, and I do seek to see love, from other brothers and sisters in Christ.

When I see the pharisee spirit, or a wolf in sheep clothing, I walk away.  I pass.

And when I don’t see it, and I see God does not get the glory, or honor or praise, I wonder….

Have you ever read a story, and it was a miracle.  Of some sort, yet the person, does not give God the glory, honor praise, or even the thanks?  But they talk about it like it was just a coincidence, etc.  And that bugs me, for God.  See, people do not see who He is, in matters like this, and if it was me, I would be giving God the glory, honor and praise.  Yesterday, I saw a brother in Christ, just ignore my thought on that, and it bothered me for God.  But, oh well….

These are things, I do not accept as right…. 

I am so grateful for the times, He has been near, helped me, saved me.  I will never forget that I was at the bottom of the barrel.  So desperate, so lost, so polluted, by my sins.  That yes, I did seek Him, and continually will, until I leave this earth.  No one can never tell me there is not a God.  I know different.  

It does get me righteously indignant when they say that.  But I will try, and give God all the glory and praise, because I am grateful.  Thats the least I can do.  But I don’t want to come from a place of being in the least.  Because everything He has done for me, has been in abundance.  

This morning, this scripture really is taking root in my spirit.  And God’s word will do that.  Thats why I recommend, always use holy King James word.  It’s anointed.  It is not corrupted, or changed, if you read my writing, you know, I hammer this.  You will hear His voice, and to another, you will not follow. 

Let Gods Holy King James word, take root in your spirit.  You would be surprised, you can grow.  You can change.  You can grow fruit, even in the harshest of winters.  

Be blessed, in Christ,

Just sharing, Just My Thoughts…

REJECT THE VICTIM SPIRIT IT BRINGS DIVISION AND DESTRUCTION ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0834.jpegI try, now I have to say this, “I try”, to not have the victim spirit.  Because sometimes, well, life, has not been easy for me.  But there is something, and I will call it the God factor, that is within me, that does not give up.  

I am tenacious.  I have been knocked off my feet a few times, with this that or the other, but I refuse to have that “victim spirit.” Because that would be the end of me.  But I see, you have to try, and keep on trying….

See, I know who God is.  And every time, I have felt victimized, in this that or the other, and I am talking about just life.  I am talking about not being successful, or making so many mistakes, and having poor judgement, or trusting people, that I should not have trusted, I could call myself a victim.  

I just remember, vengeance is His.  How can anybody have a victim mentality, or spirit, when they know God can take care of it all, and He does.  I have seen Him do it. 

You see, I know God.  God never loses.  God reminds me, I am created in His image.  He reminds me, of who He is.  When I lose sight of that, yes, I could be defeated.  But I hold onto who He is.  I hold onto His promises.  I don’t doubt Him.  I don’t speak defeat.  I speak that I can win, because of who He is.  The battle is His. And then, I give Him the glory.  

God, help us all.  I won’t claim a defeatist attitude or spirit!

See, we can internalize this, and even use our race against ourselves, and say, oh I am hated, or I never got this or that, because of my race.  Or even because I am a Christian.  To feel sorry for myself. And I reject, and refuse to say that over myself, because I am so blessed, in other ways.  I know God is not a respecter of persons.  He says, He loves us all the same. 

ACTS 10:34 KJV

Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.  

To not speak that over myself, would be a spirit of being defeated.  And I refuse to speak that, even if it seems like doom and gloom. You are only defeated if you give up.  If you don’t ask God.  I have just learned, if it does not work right, or its broken, and that could apply to anything… Go to God!  Ask Him.  He will show you.  

But if you give up, do you not know, you are giving up chances?  And here’s just a thought, but by speaking this over and over again, of being defeated, did one reap that, by doing that?  See we have to see our words. 

If there is even still a chance for me, I want it.  I want Gods favor.  I want to win the race.  

You know, I have noticed lately, that the spirit of racism, has come from a spirit of those who do have the victim spirit.  They inject in the conversation, this hate, which is another forceful spirit, and they try to make themselves the victim.  I know many have suffered because of race.  And I never try to undermine, any ones pain.  But after a while, you have to see it for what it is, and stop that spirit of being defeated.  By constantly speaking you are the victim!

But even today, I have seen, grace, being extended to hate, and you cannot extend grace to hate.  I have seen it in the halls of our govt.  You have to call it out for what it is.  Or folks, will not be accountable. Because it does try and come from the poor, pitiful me attitude.  That gives them leverage, to continue in hate.  

It is just a disguise, when they say oh that was not my intention.  Yet they keep doing it!  Compromise is not always good.  Compromise, when it comes in the name of hate, will bring more hate.  Courage is evident, to those who stand against hate.  Who see, the spirit of destruction it brings, when the defeatist spirit, just gives up.  

I am a Christian, I am an American, and Americans don’t give up!  But there has to be unity.  And when I see those who try to promote racism, in the conversation, I see it coming from a place of hate.  A place of wanting pity, as the victim.  It is a subliminal message, that tries to implement, more hate.  Because the goal is destruction.  

Don’t you see it here in America? 

I refuse to have that attitude, or that spirit.  Because hate, comes from the pit of hell.  The opposite of that is God, and He is love.  And when I see folks, trying to pull out the race card, they are trying to bring division, not love.  Not unity.  Nope I will call it out. We are Americans, one nation under God. Let’s get united.  Or we will lose our freedoms.  

Love does not feel sorry for itself.  It speaks life, it speaks truth, it speaks Hope!  

I just know if we all spoke hate, if we all spoke, division, and destruction, racism, instead of love, and hope, and trust in God, we will be used by the enemy.  We will lose.  So we have to call it out, and identify that spirit of the victim, the spirit of racism, that comes from hate. 

And I refuse to be used by the enemy.  I will submit to God, I will rebuke the enemy, and I will walk in love.  No matter what.  I have to have hope.  And believe in God.  I will not doubt God.  He does not lie.  He keeps His promises.  Now I just have to keep mine.  

And I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  I am the head, and not the tail.  I am more than a conqueror in Christ.  I have my armor of God on, and I will be victorious.  

These are all King James promises, He gives, and I embrace them.  His promises need to brought to attention for reminding. I love my King James bible.  Watching and praying, but giving God the glory.  That is not a victim spirit.  

PHILLIPIANS 4:13 KJV

I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME.

DEUTERONOMY 28:13  KJV

AND THE LORD SHALL MAKE THEE THE HEAD, AND NOT THE TAIL; AND THOU SHALT BE ABOVE ONLY, AND THAT SHALT NOT BE BENEATH; IF THAT THOU HARKEN UNTO THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY TO OBSERVE AND TO DO THEM.

ROMANS 8:37 KJV

NAY, IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THOUGH HIM THAT LOVED US.  

II CORINTHIANS 6:7 

BY THE WORD OF TRUTH, BY THE POWER OF GOD, BY THE ARMOUR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, ON THE RIGHT HAND AND ON THE LEFT.  

EPHESIANS 6:11 KJV

PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL.  

I CHRONICLES 29:11 KJV.  

THINE O LORD, IS THE GREATNESS, AND THE POWER, AND THE GLORY, AND THE VICTORY, AND THE MAJESTY:  FOR ALL THAT IS IN THE HEAVEN AND IN THE EARTH IS THINE; THINE IS THE KINGDOM O LORD, AND THOU ART EXALTED AS HEAD ABOVE ALL. 

Be blessed, in Christ,

THE BODY OF CHRIST NEEDS TO BE UNITED ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


fullsizeoutput_1b9e

The following is a situation, where a friendship dissolved.  My friendship.  With someone, I cared about deeply as a Prayer partner, friend, etc. But do you ever see something, and you realize, this is something that could be rectified?  That this happens often.  I wrote this, but the impact of it opened my eyes.  We are not united, as Christians.  And this is part of the problem.  So read this, knowing yes its personal.  But it is also something that affects the body of Christ.  

This is a card, I got from someone, I called a sister, and a friend in Christ.  My Prayer Partner.  Someone, who I truly thought was family.  In the family of God. She gave it to me, years ago.  I never got rid of it, and just recently, ran across it.

It actually pained me, to see it.  Because it was such a sweet sentiment.  It was, I thought, just another reminder, to be faithful in Christ.   That we both had tried to share, in giving.  Nurturing. To each other.  In Christ.  

Because of Christ, and who He is.  He who loves us, and is the great intercessor, who intercedes on our behalf.  He taught us to love one another.  He taught us to pray, and to forgive.  

So, I had never worried about the friendship.  Maybe I should have, been more alert, more watchful, but it was something, I was very comfortable with, and had faith in.  

Somehow, and I saw it once.  I saw there was a lie.  And I won’t go into details, but I knew better, I saw the discrepancy, and yet still offered grace.  

But, the friendship dissolved.  And I see a lot of that, not only with this situation.  But I see Christians, who take the bait from the enemy.  And they disagree, and they leave no room for grace.  Or for, forgiveness, or just the ability, to resolve issues, without, a complete dissolving.  

People are thrown out of churches, for maybe not agreeing, and people would rather, have their pride, then try and resolve things.  Pastors, do not love their sheep, they throw them out to wolves.  

What happens with that, though, when its not broken, the power of unity, can move mountains.  It can heal the sick.  The power of agreement in prayer, with Christians, can bring God into a situation.  Christ, said, He was in the midst of those when there are two or more in agreement, in prayer.  

I know, because there was power, in our prayers, we prayed together.  In a prayer of agreement, and Christs love.  We both felt the presence of God.  We would worship the Lord together, raise our hands, and it was a blessing.  As we prayed.  

I actually miss it.  It was comforting, to go to someone, to ask for prayer.  I remember once, we prayed, I had lost my diamond out of my wedding ring, and she prayed, and as I looked down, it was on the floor, at the moment of prayer.  That was anointed. 

So, yes, I see the enemies hand in all of this.  Lies.  And if that characteristic shows up, the truth, is put to the side.  

In this particular situation, it took such a strange turn, that I still am shocked, when I think about it, at what was expressed, to me, but that I also became very stubborn, to not try and resolve it.  And for the record, I forgave, I tried to express that.  

But, there was nothing I really could do, at this point.  So, I walked away.  

Do you notice, people are not accountable?  They cannot debate, or reason with one another, without insulting?  Or use other methods of communication, unless its their way?  

I see that in other situations as well.  The finger pointing.  The accusing.  I see that in politics, in the church, with other Christians.  

These are world tactics.  And we as Christians are not called to be like the world.   The pride, stops Gods work. No wonder, God says, He hates pride. 

But it does get me mad, righteously indignant, that the devil, can divide people.  And that’s his entire purpose.  To kill, steal, and destroy.  And especially those who are united in prayer.  He wants to break up the body of Christ.  Because when we are in agreement, there is power.  

This is why, and I always try to hammer this.  But this is why, I use a King James bible, to be in agreement with Him.  Because the word is holy, anointed, and not corrupted by someone who changed it.  Its Gods voice, and there is great power in using a King James.  But its difficult to get folks to see that.  It would be nice if I even had someone to pray with concerning that, in a prayer of agreement.  But I no longer have that.  

But, I will always pray.  Even if it is by myself.  As an intercessor.  Who writes prayer, and I know that, as my gift and calling.  Yes, the power of agreement, in prayer is beautiful.  But one just needs Jesus to go the throne of God, and to seek Him, with His word, His promises.  Whether people agree or not. I guess, the benefit, of having someone agree with you in prayer though, is the speed of it.  I would think. I don’t know, but its beautiful when there is agreement in prayer.  

I believe in prayer, and the power of prayer, when there is obedience.  But it seems there is no power lately, with being united.  Even in our country.  Notice how divided we are?  As a nation. 

I am sad, this person, could not see that.  Because she thought and stated, that the friendship was only for a season.  But I don’t see any where in the bible, where it says, friendship is for a season.  In fact, in Proverbs 17:17  KJV it states:

A FRIEND LOVETH AT ALL TIMES, AND A BROTHER IS BORN FOR ADVERSITY. 

Words, do have power, that were spoken.  That it was only for a season, so I honored it.  The case was closed.  

How many other friendships, in Christ are dissolved, because of pride? Or just wanting to be right, and to have an attitude?

I don’t know.  All I know, is you cannot control people, with these kinds of methods.  I have never been into manipulating anyone.  Or trying to make them do something, that really is not from God.  And I myself, do rebel against such tactics.  

I have prayed.  But after a while, when the answer seems to be no.  You realize, that it could have been a test.  

I just saw things where, I knew, I had to stay loyal to God.  Where, no matter what, I could not compromise.  As much as I wanted to do so, I could not.  And will not. 

But I do pray, the body of Christ, and people would learn, yes, Christ tells us to forgive.  But in there, is a place, where we do have to be accountable, repentant, apologetic, humble, even to one another, and see the error of our ways, or we don’t grow.  

And we have to repent to God first, then to one another.  Why do I state God first?  Because God will not forgive us unless we ask for forgiveness.  And people think grace covers it.  And yes, grace is nice, this is what I offered in that situation.  But grace can be abused.  

But God is not mocked.  In any way.  I know this about my Lord, my Father.  We reap what we sow.  And it can be grievous.  Reaping from sin, can be so heart breaking.  I know, I have reaped from my own sins.  Things that are not reversible.  Because of being foolish, not praying.  Or asking for guidance.  

But these things happen, because we are not taught to repent.  We are not taught to apologize.  In fact, look around, when do you see repentance or apologies?  This is why the body of Christ needs to be united!

So, we always have to get right with God first.  We always have to be repentant, in His sight, or pride will creep up.  And therein, is the problem.  I had hoped, she would have seen the error of this.  But she did not.  

Thats what I had hoped for, it did not happen.  

I just know this.  I will never, ever trust anybody like that again.  See this was something that had touched my soul, but it made me realize, well, if God doesn’t trust the angels, how can He trust us?   Sad, that we cannot always trust each other.  

I think we all need to work on that.  I just want to hear well done good, and faithful servant.  So I pray, God trusts me.  

Friends, if you know someone in Christ, that you need to communicate with, because you on your part, did not offer grace.  Go to that person.  Make it right.  Give that devil a black eye, by being someone who has courage, enough, to walk in love.  

MY SON, IF THOU BE SURETY FOR THY FRIEND, IF THOU HAST STRICKEN THY HAND WITH A STRANGER, THOU ART SNARED WITH THE WORDS OF THY MOUTH, THOU ART TAKEN WITH THE WORDS OF THY MOUTH.  DO THIS NOW, MY SON, AND DELIVER THYSELF, WHEN THOU ART COME INTO THE HAND OF THY FRIEND; GO HUMBLE THYSELF, AND MAKE SURE THY FRIEND.  PROVERBS 6:1-3 King James.  

Christ said, we would be known by the love. John 13:34-35 King James.  Look it up.

We have to see this. It just resonated so strongly to me, that this is why we are not united. We are being deceived by the devil himself, when we do not walk in love. When we cannot forgive. Or we cannot resolve issues, because we are offended. God sees.  Please share this.  It could unite us.  

Blessings, in Christ,

MOST DAYS I FIGHT FOR WHATS RIGHT TODAY I CRY AT WHATS WRONG ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez (Infanticide in America)


 

IMG_3478BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL: FOR THEY SHALL OBTAIN MERCY. Matthew 5:7. KJV.

How many will ask for mercy, when they themselves could not even extend mercy to a baby? How far we have gotten from God. As a nation. Have we no fear of God, and the consequences? Are we that cold?

I pray I am not.  Maybe I have been in the past.  Desensitized. But today, I am very sorrowful.  After learning, our country passed laws that will allow a baby to die, after a botched abortion.

I have never had an abortion.  And I don’t want to judge anybody.  I feel for women. They are looking for love.  And they make mistakes.  Mistakes that turn into sin.  But a baby is not a mistake.  It is a gift from God.  And beautiful gifts of life, should never be destroyed…..thats the sin, according to my bible. 

But I have this vision, of this precious baby on a table, who was rejected by its mother.  Who allowed someone to attempt to kill it, while it is in the womb.  

Somehow that fighter of a baby, survives.  

And wants to live.  But now laws are implemented, that they must allow the baby to die.  

How cruel.  How heartless, we have become as a nation.  It is almost unbelievable to me.  It makes me cry with great sorrow. 

We are such a great nation.  We offer compassion, to all.  Yet, to the most defenseless, we ignore.  We even now pass laws to let life die? 

Yet God knows each and every one of us.  He had a plan for each one of us.  He gave us all gifts and callings.  And I wonder how many have left this earth by abortion?  And they could have made a difference for the world? Like the cure for cancer? Or something that would make life better for all of us.  But before it could accomplish that, it was aborted.  

Do you not see the devils hand in this?  Does one not see how evil abortion is?  And now infanticide. Now this….

BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE BELLY I KNEW THEE; AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE WOMB I SANCTIFIED THEE, AND I ORDAINED THEE A PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.  JEREMIAH 1:5.  KJV.  

That scripture above has always touched me.  Small testimony.  My mother, could not have children.  She had her tubes tied.  In those days, it was a preventative measure to not have children.  My father wanted me, he prayed for me to be born.  I was conceived, after prayer.  My mother, thank you Lord, did not abort me.  But she did not want me.  Afterwards, yes, she loved me.  And she took care of me, always protected me.  But maybe she saw something in me, that made her realize how close she was to killing me.  She could have, I suppose.  But she did not, she feared God.  And let me live.  Maybe thats why I love the Lord so much.  Because I was not even meant to be.  But He knew me…..He sanctified me, after I repented.  Am I a prophet to the nations?  I have no idea….

But I cry now too, for those babies.  Who want to live.  

I hear so much about folks, defending babies at our borders, and sure they want to live.  I defend their rights too. 

But why as a nation, are we forsaking our own?  Why?  The fight for life, for the unborn, has gone on for years.  But this has taken it to a degree, where, I sense, we have truly lost our way, as a nation.  That we have separated ourselves from God, by accepting this.

I cannot.  I just cannot.  Like I said, most days, I fight for whats right.  I try to use my freedom of speech, to bring light.  I don’t try to talk about myself, in a narcissistic way, as some might believe.   But I talk about myself, because if I can express to someone what I have seen, or what God has done for me, maybe they can have hope.  Or see His truth.  To seek the true and living God.  By what Christ did on that cross.  We are forgiven.  

But today, I am not fighting.  Maybe tomorrow, I will.  God willing.  But I am crying today.

I am crying because it is so wrong, to do this.  Its so wrong, to implement laws like this.

And I am shocked, that there is not more of an outrage. From more Americans. When it is spoken about even now, it is a matter of fact.  

Have we all gotten so cold, and desensitized, that we have become silent?  Silence scares me.  Because many evil things have gone on in the world, because of silence.   

I fear God.  I have for a long time now.  Maybe because I saw what sin did to me, in my youth.  Thats why I don’t want to judge any woman.  But if I could tell her, please don’t do this.  Don’t abort your baby.  If I could tell her what God has done for me, maybe I could spare her.

I have talked to so many women, who have aborted their babies, and yes they became Christians, but they carry that guilt.  That guilt never leaves them.  It hangs on them like a noose.  

A baby is the closest thing we can see, to touch the face of God.  In their innocence.  They trust their mothers to protect them.  And when a mother cannot do that, God trusts us to do the right thing for that child.  And we have failed as a nation to do that.  Do you understand that?  We have failed!

I suppose that’s another reason why I cry.  Because that baby has a right to live.  Its not the mothers right.  She just carries it.  And what about the fathers right?  Or Gods right?  He says thou shalt not kill.  Thats a law.  A commandment.  How offensive this is.  For it breaks the law of God.  

BUT WHOSO SHALL OFFEND ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES WHICH BELIEVE IN ME, IT WERE BETTER FOR THAT A MILLSTONE WERE HANGED ABOUT HIS NECK, AND THAT HE WERE DROWNED IN THE DEPTH OF THE SEA.  MATTHEW 18:6.  KJV.  

Because I know God.  I know, we reap what we sow.  I know, God is not mocked.  I know, God hates the shedding of innocent blood.  I know that there will be a price to pay.  If not now, it will reveal itself.  This is pure evil.  It’s murder.  I cannot grasp this, or reason it, or explain it, to justify it.  I am a simple person, but I see how wrong it is.  

I don’t understand it.  

But I know God will have the last word in this.  So I pray today.  I pray our country opens up their spiritual eyes.  That the fear of God would remind them, that we all will stand before God, when we leave this earth.  

I cry out to people all the time, to repent.  I know what daily repentance does for me.  Because I know daily, I can blow it.  But if folks don’t see how wrong this is, they won’t repent.  And when they stand before God, what will He say to them?  

I don’t believe He will say well done good and faithful servant.  Its a terrible thing to fall into the hands of a living God.  

FOR WE KNOW HIM THAT HATH SAID, VENGEANCE BELONGETH UNTO ME, I WILL RECOMPENSE, SAITH THE LORD. AND AGAIN THE LORD SHALL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.  IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD.  HEBREWS 10:30-31 KJV.  

I do hope we repent as a nation.  I hope, people see the evil of this.  I pray and pray.  I hope those who have the power to do so, will change this.  Reverse it, before the wrath of God comes.  

Yes, most days I fight for whats right.  Like my King James bible, that is holy, not corrupted.  And I always recommend that bible.  

But today, I grieve, with great sorrow. Today, I cry at how wrong this all is.

In Christ,
