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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He got caught up in an agenda.

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In Christ’s love, Elena Ramirez 



PB030096.jpgI want my Christian brothers, and sisters to see this.  I plead with them to know truth.  I speak to all people, but how can a Christian, who is not seeing this, actually able to minister effectively?  

I know God can use any bit of truth, even the smallest.  But when the “lump” is compromised.  When the truth, is distorted, into part truth, and part lies.  The enemy can come in, and deceive.  Let no man steal your crown, Christ warns.  Its in the first fruits in honoring God, in obedience, in seeing truth.  That can make this difference between God and a counterfeit. 



Here leaven is referring to the wrong doctrine, and I would say because of these false bible versions.  

But, this is what I am seeing with many Christians. Who are not choosing truth, but choosing the counterfeit.   

They are choosing the counterfeit.  They are choosing the lie.  They go to battle for the lie.  They go to battle for the false prophet.  They go to battle, thinking, they are doing right, but what they are doing is so wrong in the sight of God.  If only they had this much passion for the true Kingdom of God.  

I have seen this with friends, with people I love.  And as I try and even speak truth, I turn into the bad guy.  According to them, I turn into the mean one.  I turn into someone, who is coming against Gods anointed, for they remind me,  “touch not my anointed.”  (funny I taught this person this scripture and others) but anyway, I have seen it.  

They forget to love.  They forget not to return evil, for evil.  They want to make me the outcast.  Just because I uphold truth, and my King James bible…  For thus saith the Lord!

I have actually shopped, with some of my friends, and we go into Christian book stores, and they choose the book, or cd, that the fake prophet has written, and they are so inspired.  They love their ears tickled.  But I did not say anything…

But they hate me now, because I don’t tickle ears any more.  I never really did, tickle ears, but the fruit, has been compromised.  Even with other lies.  That came in, and it grieves me, because I could not stop it.  But I am speaking up, because I am alarmed, at how they grasp these false messages.  And embrace, and put up on a pedestal that false prophet.  Even on their posts.  

I might not even say anything, most times, I don’t, but every once in a while when something comes across my desk, I might say; Like wow, did you hear what that person said?  And I present, what they said, not what I said, but the proof is in a video, or in their own words, yet they get mad.  And they get mad at me. 

Well truth be, I am called to speak truth.  I am not famous, I haven’t gotten a book deal, and reached success, according to the worlds standards.  So, if anybody listens to me, for truth, I pray they hear that.  But I will not compromise truth, to please people, or tickle ears.  

Because I don’t follow anybody, but Christ, and what my King James bible says.  I don’t even admire anybody right now, because I haven’t truly found any leaders, that uphold the King James, or speak a strong salvation message.  I just don’t. 

Nope, what I see are these prosperity messengers, or these lying prophets, who are wolves in sheeps clothing, who promote religion.  (Rules, regulations, traditions made by men, and groups.)  Or even with the women, they ride on their husbands coat tail.  And I won’t attend their church, nor will I embrace them by promoting them.  Let alone, following them.  

Really…. oh well.  

But it does grieve me, and if it grieves me, I know it has to grieve God, for the Christian, who does not see the truth in these false prophets.  In the lying prosperity message, etc.  It grieves God when the word, is twisted, and turned around by these fake bibles.  It grieves God, because it defies Him, with no fear of God, or the consequences.  

I fear God. 

God sees, when the pastor, who denies, what KJV scripture, says, who might even have an agenda, to promote, division.  Who does not tell everyone, or teach to bow, before Christ.  That somehow or another, a group of people, is not a part of that.  Yet the word says, there is no difference between the jew or gentile.  That all will bow, and confess Jesus is Lord.  These pastors who do these kind of things to sell books, or cds, well its obvious, they want to be front and center.  Not Gods King James word.  

And sadly, not God Himself.  They defy that, whats wrong with you folks, who do that, are blinded.  

I always look at each pastors, bible, reference.  Is it King James, and usually its a counterfeit, they use.  

I don’t have that agenda, to be front and center.  I don’t.  I want my Lord to be glorified, by truth, not by lies.  I don’t want to hear, I never knew you.  From Christ. Like I said, I fear God, and I know enough of my Bible, to see this.  I am not a know-it-all.  But what I do know, I will show for the glory of God, and only God.  

I feel for my brothers and sisters, in Christ, who embrace these false prophets.  Who cannot get true discernment, and become confused, because they even embrace fake word, with these false bible versions.  I feel for them.  Because they embrace the prosperity message.  

But, I will continue to walk in truth, I will write truth, I will walk in love.  And if I make enemies, oh well, God fights my battles, and I know it.  And I don’t even have to see it, I know they will reap what they sow, because this is scriptural.  Vengeance is HIS, and I can walk on, because I forgive.  I will not allow that poison in my heart, and soul.  We are temples of the living God, and it makes me wonder who is living in some of these temples?  Its not God, for God is love…..


But I know the difference, and I will not follow anybody but Christ, through my King James bible.  

My bible, speaks about truth, about who God is, what His commandments say.  It speaks, about the salvation, we can have through Christ.  It speaks, about warning, others, and maybe this is what I am trying to do, because even the “righteous” Christian, who thinks they are right.  According to Ezekiel 33.  Needs to be warned.  (read it yourself)  

I am warning here…. Because they think its judging someone, but its warning!  Don’t confuse judging with warning, if you are seeking truth.  Because you will get confused. 

It warns us Christ tells us to get right with Him, keep our garments clean.  (repent daily) Yet, some thinks bible is about the seed, and harvest, or about tithing, and they hold onto that, and let go of the truth.  They embrace the counterfeit.  

I will continue to see through false messages, who thinks its only grace that saves them and does not embrace the law, they will find out and be in for a rude awakening, when they stand before God, because God throughout His word, says, keep His commandments.  Yet they throw the law out.  

But the only way, I can continue to see through false messages is to be totally submitted to God.  To obey Him.  To give no place to the enemy.  And this is is my goal.  And I pray thats your goal, as well.  

But the counterfeit lies, that are out their in full force, have hurt the body of Christ, and nobody, wants to take the side of truth. Oh well, I will walk the narrow road, by myself.  

For the friends, I have lost, even recently, have taught me, and shown me, fruit, that was counterfeit.  Not of love.  Returning evil for evil.  Woe unto them that call good evil.  And evil good.  Giving me the silent treatment, when I gave grace.  Not truly forgiving… No all of these things, have shown me, more then ever.  Truth. 

But I will continue with Christ.  With His truth, and with His love.  That is not compromised.  I feel for my brothers and sisters in Christ, I truly do.  I see, how the world is lost, and those that could make a difference, do not, because they let the lump be compromised.  I see, how it weakens our faith, I see how it can open the door to the enemy.  But if I warn them I then become their enemy.  

Its their choice, to not choose God, and His truth, and to choose the counterfeit.  But He will judge.  Let alone knowing, they reap what they sow.   And if I could only get someone to see this, to repent, to choose wisely, then maybe my gift and calling, would bring glory to God.  If I could pull them from hells fire.  To keep their garment clean, and not with spot.  

Because I serve, God and only God, and I submit to God, I renounce, and denounce the enemy, and want nothing to do with lies that create counterfeits.  

As I close, please, remember this.  Don’t overthrow Gods truth, and choose the counterfeit.  Please don’t.  You will regret it, maybe for eternity, if you don’t repent, and change.  Please…..


Blessings, in Christ only,

BE CAREFUL OF VOICES FROM FALSE PROPHETS ~ By Christian author Elena Ramirez


There are many voices, many who say they are called by the Lord. Many, may have good intentions. But I am very careful who I listen to. I am very careful, not to take every bodies word on a matter. Or anybody.

I think I have learned to be careful not to criticize as well, but I am careful. I take more time to pray about it, then jump to conclusions as well. Because of the spirit of deception. How we need discernment.

You see, there are those, who are wolves, in sheeps clothing. There are those, who may look, and sound like they are sheep. But they are not. Look at their motive. Is it for Salvations, is it to win people to God? Is it for money? Do they try to bait you, so you can give money?

And when they share a word, what scriptures is it based on? If its not a King James word, I am sorry, I shut the sound off, turn away, and will not receive anybodies word, on a matter. Because to me, it is corrupted word, that is not holy and anointed. So thats a big sign to me.

Because thats a voice of deception. Friends, be careful. I know you want to grow. I know sometimes, we can be so trusting. But, there are spiritual curses, that come with some of these false prophets, and you want to avoid them. We want to remember, we know Christ’s voice, and to another we will not follow.

The goal is always again, to have the mind of Christ, and to have discernment. Be careful what you receive, what you share, and who you listen to. I say this in Christ love.



By Elena Ramirez 


Update:  May 2, 2011.  We went back to this church, yesterday,  after over a month.  I still do not know what the will is of the Lord for us, in this.  I never want to hurt anyone, by what I write.  Nor do I touch the anointed of God, by being critical.  I never mention this pastors name, or the church.  Yet, I have gotten some comments, some here, and in other places, that have been both, supportive, and critical of me in this.  I did enjoy the service. Last night. It was a worship service.  Maybe God wants us to return, and to pray for this church more.  It has so much potential, so does the pastor.  I just may be reacting also from past experiences.  Past hurts too.  So I am trying to be an open book here, for God to use me.  But, I know, prayer, will answer this, because I am not sure.  But I know God knows.  I trust God.  For myself, for my family.  For this church, for the pastor.  I trust God….  
PLEASE NOTE:  I wrote this as a draft.  I was originally not going to post it because, I did, expect to go back to this little church.  It has been over a month, since, we stopped attending.  I did not think, it would turn my husband off so much, but we have not been back.  This is an account, from that point.  I am just supportive of my husband, first, and trusting God, to guide us.  But now we do not have a church, to attend.  But it makes me realize, we do have to be careful.  And where we go, has to have lots of faith, and believe, in miracles…..The word of God, has to have power.  There has to be a sense, of the Holy Spirit…..In any event….Perhaps, it will help someone….This is always my prayer, when I write….But do Pastors realize, that if they do not speak faith, they can turn people off.  Because they are turned off?  Hmmmm. 

Jeremiah 12:11 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.  They have made it desolate and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate because no man layeth it to heart.

What happens, when a Pastor, does not have faith?  Or does not believe, in God, and His power, completely?  And speaks, against the fruit, the power of God?  Where even, the Holy spirit, is not tapped into….  Or where there is not Holy communion, in remembrance of Christ.  What happens, when pastors, get turned off?  And they share their disdain?

We have been attending, a lovely little church lately.  And so I want to be careful as I write this.  The pastor, is an excellent speaker, and his wife, a nice lady as well.  The church, is not too big, not too small.  And everybody, is so nice.  I want to extend some grace in this matter, because the pastor, did mention, that he was tired, physically, and that their was an illness, concerning, one of his children.

Now, we come from a charismatic, background, so we are kind of used, to seeing, the anointing flow, we are used, to seeing pastors, lay hands on people, and the Holy spirit, called upon, and where the church, the body of Christ, is expressive, and “hallelujah” is often said, with the raising of hands.

We have been attending, this church, I would say about four months.  And at first, I did not notice, this, but there is no holy communion, at the services, we attended.  No layng of the hands, no flow of the Holy Spirit.  etc.

Last Sunday, my husband, was not feeling good, physically, and spiritually.  He had been taking a new blood pressure medicine, and it really was a downer for him.  It depressed him, and my husband, is not easily, depressed.  He is consistent in his personality, and pretty happy, in his faith, etc.

Well, we went to church last weekend, and as I mentioned, the pastor, did mention, he was tired, and so that was good, that he expressed that, he needs, to vent, too, I am sure. But, do pastors have that luxury, when they have a congregation, who needs to hear the power and the word of God?

Anyway, as the service, progressed, his sermon, was on prayer, and he brought up some points, that he expressed, yet, because he was somewhat turned off, in these situations, he more or less, turned my husband off.

And when I think about it in retrospect, I am not sure what exactly his motive was.  But he was very negative.  Not at all positive, or trusting God, in His sermon.  Or the power anyway.  Because he kept, addressing, phonies.  Why?

I had my armor, on, so to speak, and I may have cringed a bit, but I did not know, that it frustrated, my husband so much, that this weekend, he did not want to go to church.  And he brought up, how depressed, he was feeling, but when this pastor, made his points, he said, I needed to hear, how all things are possible, with God, I needed hope, and this pastor basically, took my faith and my hope away.  So, he did not want to attend this weekend.  I was shocked.

And it just made me think, that some of us, are strong, in the Lord.  Some of us know, who we are,in Christ,  but some of us, are really searching, for God, in signs, and wonders, in the moving of the Holy Spirit.  But in any event, there are times, even those that know God, need to hear something positive, not negative.

Gods ways, are not our ways….

This pastor, again, I know, is an excellent speaker, but maybe because he was on a downer, himself, he did not realize, how he sounded.  His points, were negative, truthfully.  And I am sharing them, because, they were related to illness.

But you know what, I believe, by Christs stripes I am healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  I believe, that God, sent the word to heal us, and deliver us from destruction.  I believe, when I pray Jeremiah 17:14, Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed, save me, and I will be saved, for you are the only one, I will praise.  I have meditated, and prayed that word, believing, in the anointing.  The laying of hands.  It gives me hope…..but it reminds, me, God is not a man.  God is able.

And my husband needed, a word, because he was ill, but in relating this, I don’t know, if this pastor, saw this or not, but he diminished faith and hope, because of examples he had seen.  And shared with the congregation.  Why share these?

The four points that he shared, in our sermon notes were the following:

1.  The sensationalist – Show biz healers.

2.  The confessionalists – the name it and claim it crew

3.  The rationalist – an illness is in the mind.

$.  The realist – God can heal but does not always.

I guess, even as I read this, I know, he was trying to bring some balance.  To perhaps, be aware of these kind of situations, perhaps, where he has seen, phony people, or pastors, etc.

Yet, it reminded me, that when people are desperate, or hurting, they need to release their faith.  They need to have something to grasp onto, to help them through, their pain, or their fear, or an illness.

Yes, maybe some are phonies.  But should one throw away the faith and hope?  Because of the phonies?   What if it gives hope?  And let me clarify this, but how does one know they are phonies?  If God is using them?  If the word of God, is used?  If there is evidence, of Gods power?  Hope, is what we need, to get to God.  To have results.  To move God, we need to show Him, we have faith.

Yes those points, brought up the phonies, perhaps the characteristics.  But when I go to church, I don’t want to hear about phonies.  I want to hear about the power of God, and I never want to diminish it, in any form.  Because it brings a spirit of doubt.

I have struggled, as I mentioned in my last post, about my faith.  But not now. And I have had to stir myself up, by the word, by repentance, and by believing, by taking the word and applying it, and if we do not apply it, well, we can easily get in the zone of unbelief.

As most of you know, I am adamant, about using the King James Bible, for my faith.  I believe in the power of it, because it has not been tampered with.

But what happens, when people are searching, and they hear the pastor, from the pulpit, more or less, saying its “hocus pocus” when they see, pastors, have healing services, when pastors do that?  Well, they are human.

You know, I am always reminded, that the devil is the accuser, of the brethren.  And intellectuals, realists, and religion, pharisee spirits, will say, nope, thats wrong.  And I think, we all can do it, but we have to be careful, who we are relating to.  We have to be careful, not to turn people, off, because we are turned off.  Bringing a spirit of discouragement.  So, there could be a danger, in not pleasing God.  God says, faith pleases him.

You know, I come from a place, where my faith has grown.  I believe the scriptures, when God, says, all things are possible with him.   When I heard him, say these things, again, I kind of cringed, but I shook it off, because no one, is going to make me feel any different, when I know who I am in Christ.

Yet, my husband was ill.  I took authority, I prayed for my husband.  I gave him scriptures on healing.  I tried to remind him, that it was going to be o.k.  I stood in faith for him.  But it was a tough couple of weeks.  Now, thank God, he went to the doctor, and got a different, medication, for his blood pressure, and is back to normal.  But, he felt a little sad, that when he needed this word, this pastor, was preaching his sermon, from a point of himself, being, turned off.  And he left, that service, not being hopeful.

The pastor, had elders, come to the front, and he had them pray for people.  This was a first, to see, since, we have been there visiting.  But, he did not pray for the people.  And it makes you think, where is the authority, from the leader, the pastor of the church, if he will not pray for the people, and delegate it to the congregation members?  To be honest, it seemed odd.

My husband, did not go to the prayer intercessors.  Maybe, he would have, if the pastor, had prayed for the people.

Consequently, again, we did not go to church this weekend, which left me a little sad.  I hope, we will go back to that church.  But how can we, if we do not feel the prompting from God?  My husband is the spiritual leader, in this household.  And so I trust God and Him.  We have to pray about it.  Searching for churches, can be exhausting.  You want to feel the love, you want to feel, accepted, but you want to see the power, of God, working.  You want to feel the spirit, the Holy Spirit, because then you are basically, just going, but not receiving.  Yes, people can get turned, off, because the Pastor may be turned off.

I want to give this church another chance.  I know, how it feels, when people, won’t give me a chance.  I have been praying for this pastor, and this church.

But, I will trust God, together, with my husband, and son, and pray, God will guide us, where we can all get something, out of our searching for God, at church.  God only knows….but first and foremost, I want to be obedient, and I want to believe, in miracles, not put them down.  Even as I write, I want to close on a positive note, with God all things are possible.  Period.

Just my thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Promise….

Lord, I changed my thinking lately, from hope, to claim your promises.  I want to be in an environment, where your word, is taught, in its purity.  And where the power of you our Lord, will be manifested, magnified, and brought to the light, for your glory.  Lord, please guide us.  Please guide us, to a church, where we can grow, but where your power, is revealed.  Where your Holy Spirit is.  Where there is more than hope, it is revealed by your promises.  Where love is.  We have not seen your love in too many places.  Lord, I don’t want phonies either, and I sure do not want to go somewhere, where you are not.  Lord, guide us.  Guide that pastor.  Such a lovely church father.  I don’t know, if that pastor, even seen what he was doing.  Or he just reacted by his own feelings.  Lord, when my feelings get in the way.  You have my permission, to kick in the door, and reveal your power, and that faith, will make things evident.  Because of who you are.  Thank you Lord.  I praise you and love you, and believe.  I believe, because of what Christ did on the cross.  No matter what.  I believe, in you.  In Jesus name.  Amen
