Dear Friends & Family,
Julie and I are super happy to write you today. My heart is full. Wow! We are encouraged and full of hope. God is doing amazing things in and through his people. It is our greatest hour and opportunity.
When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him and puts him to flight. [For He the Holy Spirit will come like a narrow rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives] (Isa 59:19AMP). The Spirit of the Lord is so strong as I am writing this. He is rising up inside and upon us. Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you (Isa 60:1 AMP)!
Two days ago, I was blessed to pray with someone fighting symptoms of the c-virus (however not tested). They of course were also struggling with anxiety and fear. Within 8 hours all the symptoms were gone as well the anxiety and fear. We can all do this by laying on hands and praying. We can do so over the phone or with a text or social media post. Even an old school letter can transmit God’s power. Jesus just spoke the word and the Centurion’s servant was healed. He gave the noble man a word and when he simply acted on it and turned to walk home his son was healed. Jesus told us in John 14:12, “The works that I do these works and greater you will do because I am going to send the Holy Spirit to you.”
Yes, He is in us and rising inside and upon us and radiating out of us. His presence and His anointing in us flows out. Out of your hands and upon your voice. This is His standard that is putting the enemies of virus, fear, and depression to flight.
I remember the story of John G. Lake when the bubonic plague was sweeping South Africa. He and his colleague stopped ministry to help bury the dead. No one would do so knowing the disease lived on the dead bodies and would spread to anyone who touched one. Lake and his friend never contracted the disease. The British Red Cross investigated them thinking they had acquired an immunity. Lake said, no we have no natural immunity but this the law of the Spirit of life that is in Christ Jesus that has set us free from the law of sin and death. They did not understand him. So in their laboratory they allowed Lake’s demonstration. He took the viral foam coming out of a cadaver’s mouth into his hand and asked that they examine it under their microscope. They were shocked seeing the virus cells that were multiplying on the dead man’s body die exponentially in Lake’s hand.They exclaimed, “My God man, what is this”? He replied “It’s Romans chapter 8 verse 2. The law of the Spirit of life that is in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death.” The amplified says the law of the Spirit of life “the law of our new being”.
Yes, if any man is in Christ he is a new creation 2 Cor 5:17. The Greek word for new is Kairo. Meaning new in kind or species. We became this new species, this new kind of being when we were born again. It is the law of our new being that has this overcoming power. Allow me to explain. The other day I flew home from Asia. The physical laws of thrust and lift overcame the law of gravity. At times 33,000 feet above the earth. For a total of 25.5 hours on 3 different flights, I overcame the law gravity. We were if you will, free from it. The pilots, the crew, and all passengers had no problem putting faith in this and believing that we were going to overcome gravity. But I dare say that most did not understand how it works. I do not completely.
Oh that we rise up and know the law of our new being. That we have faith and believe in the One who lives in us and who He made us to be! That we cooperate with and activate the law our new nature, the law of the Spirit of life, Who lives in us and we in Him. We shall overcome it all my friends and we shall shine and be His light in this darkness. People will come to His light. The current darkness in the world is like that in a theater. It only facilitates the audience to focus on the performance and who the spotlight is shining upon. Let that light, that new nature rise up in you, and shine out my friend.
How? Practically, I think about this truth. Meditate on it and talk about it to friends and family. By faith, I act upon it and release His life and anointing out to others who are in need and want. As I write you about this reality, I can tangibly feel this Spirit of life in and upon me. This is Christianity. Jesus came to give us this life and nature of God and came to give it to us in great abundance and we have received Him. This is new life. So let us arise to it and with it and in it. Let us shine it and radiate it out to others. Transmit it. How?Through our touch, our words, our joy, our prayer, our declaration, and even our smile! Through our sound. Yes, our sound.
On the day of Pentecost, a sound came from heaven. I believe it was the sound that came out of the 120 when Holy Spirit filled them. A heavenly sound and a perfect note.The sound of the soul touched by God. I have heard it many times in a sermon, prayer, prophetic word, or a song. Its frequency healed disease and shattered depression. Its tone annihilated fear. This sound destroyed my unbelief. Rooted out my doubt and filled me with faith and with anointing. I have heard it come out of so many of my friends and pastors and teachers. I have heard this sound in Julie’s prayers and those of my children and grandchildren. Even now as I write you, I feel it and hear it in my soul. Makes me want to shout, to dance, and to run! Arise and shine. Your light has come. He is in you. You have the greater One living on the inside of you. He wants to bust out and burst forth destroying the works of the enemy. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
So with this, I will rest my case. Julie and I love you and are praying for you. If you need or want prayer, please email me. I would love to pray, encourage, or help any way we can.
Thanks so much for praying for us. The revival meeting in Asia was an amazing success. Our school there grew from 26 last year to 42 this year. This year we had many more men and older students in mid twenties up to sixties. At the last moment, in cooperation with their local authorities, the crusade was canceled. We are invited to come back and hold it as soon as circumstances allow.
Finally, we want to thank you for your faith and generosity. Because of the current shake up in the “world’s economy” some ministries and missionaries are in fear, thinking that people might hold back giving. “No, I said. We must operate in the opposite spirit”. God has graciously taught Julie and I faith about this over the years. So in times like this we are extra generous and sow in these times of famine and prosper like Isaac did in Genesis 26:12.This has always been true for us, while practicing law and as missionaries. Let us all keep our trust and faith in Him and His kingdom and to live in His economic system!
With Much Love,
Charley & Julie
