Introducing Nicole Ramirez
Hello my name is Nicole and it mean victory of the people, victorious one, and it origin is from Greece.
I am a photographer, author, as well as an artist. This is my first posting here in my blog, and over the next season, i will share from several different subjects so as to encourage you.  One goal I have and intend to accomplish is to share the trials, traumas, and just hard times that i have come through, that i made it this far and you can too.
So, let me start with as i said above....  My name is Nicole. I am adopted and found out as i was raised by my adoptive parents, that my name was given to my by my biological dad. I was born in the 50's, and even though now in the 21st century, when i was growing up there was not one other Nicole i even met, heard of, be it in my life or on television. I never heard the name Nicole anywhere at all.
I was raised by Mr & Mrs Stickler, my adoptive parents, and they adopted another kid, this time a boy, and now i had a brother. We moved ever so much and so i never really got established in a neighborhood, all but for once. 
My dad acquired cancer and died of it when i was 11. We moved back to Pennsylvania, so he could say goodbye to his blood family before he died. After his death we came back to California, and settled in
San Diego County, the home of my moms sister.  We settled in an rural area of the Eastern County, and we stayed in one place, and it was nice to go to one school my entire high school years.
Of course i saw some cute looking guys, and sorta would follow them around. Another guy became aware of me, especially as i started to go to sports events to take pictures. I decided to take photography, for i needed credits to graduate, and that seemed different and maybe fun.  By the end of my junior year, i started dating this guy who was watching me. He graduated that year and 2 years later i then graduated.  He then moved and got his own apartment and i invited myself to move in. Within several months a very good friend of mine, had a dream, and because of the dream, she begged me to watch Billy Graham crusade that weekend on the t.v. (i had gone to his crusades growing up, and watched his crusades lots of times).  So the weekend came and it was December of 1977. I watched the crusade and ended up curled up on the floor crying at the end when the invitation to accept Christ was given. Well that very night, i couldn't go to bed with my boyfriend, i just KNEW it was not good anymore. So i slept in the walk in closet. Within the next week, i moved home with my mom. (she now only had a one bedroom apartment, and my brother had left home).  Within several months my boyfriend whose name was Charles, well he came to invite me out on a date once again, and shared with me he was saved now.  Within 5 months i was engaged, and we got married in June 1979.
I got pregnant nearly immediately and had a son in June of 1980 and named him charles as well. I now called my husband Charlie. The next 20 years were basically 2 more kids, who were boys, and several apartments too.
In 2002 my mom died, and within a year i started looking for my birth mom.  It was (I think) in 2005 that i found my birth dad. I found him for i had always known we had the new paper article in which it was shared the details of my situation..........
Details will be given in the next posting on my blog...........

Signs AND Symptoms

            The goal here in my posting IS to share/teach that many a time that we have Signs and/or Symptoms in our bodies, and most if not all the time ASSUME we have an illness when (those of us that understand the spiritual side of life), in reality it is only an oppressive/possesive attack from the devil, enemy, the dark side of this world. Many don't accept that there is even an unseen side of life or this world.
            When a person comes through a situation, or experience times of darkness, spiritual warfare, illness, and many other facets of evil, they KNOW true freedom, victory, and Salvation in Christ Jesus.  So many that have illness's from simple conditions like Asthma, to terminal illness's as Cancer, don't understand that much, MUCH are stemmed from generational curses of what could be witchcraft, divination, and several other such things. One can be bitter, resentful over people/situations in thier life both past as well as present, and that can open a door (spiritually), and allow illness in. One can have signs and symptoms such as a rash or maybe pain in a part of the body, and will go the doctor before they pray, Pray, or even Pray and Fast over those signs/symptoms. I personally have had many signs and symptoms of illness's, but have not seen a doctor over any of them. I have learned biblically so much about illness, and have embraced/used that knowledge/wisdom so as to shut doors, learn facets of GOOD HEALTH, and to walk as well as live in it.
              Let me share now about me, and if anyone has questions, FEEL FREE To ask. I have over the last few years been blanking out (not passing out, just having ALL black out, and then coming to). I dont faint, just have time missing. This starting happening sometime after finding my biological dad. I learned after finding him, about all the witchcraft done to me as an infant. Then some years passed and I learned of the molestation done to me by my adopted dad.
Over the last few years,  my healing (now complete), has gradually come to pass. First done I believe, one curse at a time. One healing then another. As my healing has intensified and become more and more complete, I would continue to have some signs and symptoms of the childhood trauma, that I had endured.  God has been teaching me and now I have learned it greatly, that even though I still had/have some of those signs/symptoms, that I am healed. That has been one of my greatest breakthroughs.
Most of us will get a sign/symptom of something and automatically believe/diagnose/acknowledge that we have a disease/condition that the enemy "tries" to give us.  Of course we can as well get something from the enemy because of sin, and that is a whole nother posting/chapter/subject. This posting is to share, be aware of the condition(s) of our bodies; become aware and utilize God's directions in how healing is imparted, acquired, as well as how illness's, conditions of our health can be and most certainly can be healed, good, and blessed by grasping and understanding that so often the answer IS in SCRIPTURE.    Before I share scriptures, here are some words, and you can do a word search in your bible, or online, maybe at https://www.biblegateway.com
Here are some scriptures to start and show you some in ones healing. Now to learn MORE, do a word study on healing/bitterness/resentment

Proverbs 3:5-8      Malachi 4:2     James 5:14       Proverbs 17:22    Psalm 91:1-3     Proverbs 16:24

In closing, I have just touched the base of a mountain in regards to healing/illness/freedom.                       Contact me, and/or do the word study suggested above.   wingsofhealing@cox.net

10/10/12

In a vision I keep seeing a steak cooking. The Spirit says; the natural inclination is to cut off the fat before the steak has begun to cook, so many try to do the same spiritually. But as you begin to offer your lives on the altar, I leave the fat on, I leave and "let" the troubles, the trials, and the things that make you tender towards Me. All of those things that you would cut away, those are the things that I allow in your life to make you tender. Those very things that you would cut away are the very things that I use to cause you to draw closer to Me, to cause you to seek Me, to make you stand regardless. So that once you have gone through the difficult times, your faith will arise, and you will let nothing deter your heart from Me any longer. These are some of the things that I use, says the Lord, I use those things to build your God-character, the man and the woman that will be like Me.

So, even though you pray, and yes you should pray and come against every temptation, every trial, every test, but know that I am using some of these to cause you to grow up, to cause you to have a tender heart towards Me, to develop great endurance and patience with joy. To develop ears to hear Me and know Me, to be sensitive towards Me. Be discerning and know that even as you stand against the attacks of the enemy, know the things that he means for your harm, I turn and use them for your good and growth. Be wise and understand that at the right time when your heart is very tender, I cut those things away, little by little so that you will be tender towards Me and Me alone and. You will have the season of your Father God throughout your very life.

This is My plan and this is My desire for you. Never forget that everything that has come across your life, has been noted by Me, so if you will let Me, I will use it to make you tender, to make you more flavorful, to make your more seasoned like Me. It is My plan and it is My purpose, though the enemy means those things to destroy you, I turn them to your good!

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light." (Col. 1:9-12)
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end." (Eccles. 3:11)

Blood Moon October 8th 2014

Just a beautiful time as I awoke at 2:37 am this morning and had already slept 5 hours and looked out the window and noticed the eclipse had started!  I thought it was tonight....... and had misunderstood the fact that yes it was night time of October 8th, but at midnight the date changes, so if i hadn't woken up I would have missed it~  I don't have a huge lens and so that is why it is so small.  But I hope, declare, proclaim  I will get a better lens soon.   So here is the photograph ~~~~~~~

I do hear, discern the Lord communicating with me to DANCE, and that is something I would rather not do, it is very humbling to me, though humility is good. Guess it is time not to care about be humbled.  LOL.   Sooooooooo, I am connected with Glory of Zion, a church/ministry in Texas. http://www.gloryofzion.org/ .  I heard a song one sunday morning as John Dickson led it on his guitar.

A time to learn........................

Here recently I have been hit by a demonic spirit, and thought that because it overcame me in an area, that there was an area THAT I had not given to God, and I am a "why" person, so just couldn't grasp why since I have been saved since 1977, that a spirit could still be in possession somehow. It has been revealed to me, that what I experienced last week, was not possession, but just oppression. Some christian friends/acquaintances, have let me know that I shouldn't be having these issues in my life.
The last couple of days, I have grasped of the Lord, that I like to "do, do, do"; things.  I also abhor waiting, I like to DO so I don't have to wait. Many a time in the past, when I wait, that which I wait on, rarely comes to pass, unless I chase after it! I am grasping with the fear of the Lord on it, to wait and  let GOD Do, for if I do, well , I don't want to know what could happen. Many of God's people are in a time of intense testing by HIM, and my prayer is that : 1. you will know what the test is on  2. that you will be compliant to that which you are being tested in.
ME?  I pray for someone maybe once or twice and give the request to God. I rarely intercede anything, or anyone in my prayer life. That again is time for me to step up to the plate and bat/intercede/pray for many a person as Holy Spirit brings them to mind. To everything there is a season and this season for many of us is a time to learn "whatever" Holy Spirit wants us to learn.   I am learning to quit doing, to wait, and to pray/intercede greater than ever.  We all are in a time of breakthrough, what are you to breakthrough in? What is your breakthrough? What are you going to be victorious in? May your/our focus be our Saviour: JESUS CHRIST and not the situation, not the darts, not the problem, may we be aware of the ugly, but not FOCUSED on it!     Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo, in so sharing my breakthrough, my dilemna , contact me wingsofhealing@cox.net  with your prayer request, and I will write down your name, your request, and WAIT, until we get that prayer answered!!  Just think if we would all work together , that God could use us just like

Romans 8:28 states:

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.



Looking forward to this season we have entered. I/we will/have come to a new level, in the name of JESUS CHRIST, amen and hallelujah!   Shalom
