THIS IS TO HELP THE FAMILY (PART TWO)
Well, after that last one you probably don't want to read anything else from me, and I wouldn't blame you. But I am starting
this Part Two) by saying that I am writing these things out of love. "ha ha ha, love, he says" is what you are probably thinking
or saying, but
I am overflowing with love for you, and that is why I can share these things with you.
If you really believe something, like you do now, and someone leaves your fellowship, and yet you don't try to talk to them
and win them back and at least try to keep in contact with them and share your heart with them, then you can't really say
that you love them, now can you?
How can you say you love someone when you just forget about them and don't really care how they are doing, never call them,
never ask them, never visit them, all because you are afraid they may say something negative about what you believe, and hurt
your feelings, or hurt your faith.
I am not afraid to talk to people and tell them what I believe and that I think it would be good for them to and why. I don't
have to do it out of bitterness or in a forceful way....I don't have to use threats that God won't bless you, or get angry
at you. Why should I? I don't have to be afraid that you will dissuade me, or persuade me to think against what I believe.
There are many things I learned in The Family and from the Mo Letters that I am thankful. I learned a lot of things about
salvation, the Holy Spirit, witnessing, that I may have never learned. Witnessing with a guitar has been one of my main ministries
through the years and I probably never would have gotten the vision to do that if I hadn't seen it done by Aaron, and a lot
of the early disciples.
It helped to open many doors and break down many barriers in people's hearts using music in personal witnessing and helping
to lead them to the Lord, and by the way that is what this is all about. That is what I am writing all about. Leading people
to Jesus, and not to angels, not to spirit guides, not to a man or woman, but leading people to God, through Jesus Christ.
It is about putting your faith more in God, more in Jesus and appropriating the faith that God has given through what Jesus
It's about living your faith, a real faith, and having an awesome experiential relationship with God, to where you are not
waking up in the morning after getting rebuked or corrected under condemnation not knowing if God still loves you or not.
If you are serving God to try to please God and keep Him off your back, so that you won't get cursed or have bad things happen
to you.....if you are praying out of fear for God to protect you because you haven't got the insurance that He will unless
you pray "desperately " enough.....if you are continually asking God to help you overcome your NWO's and weak areas , but
you know you fall short and are struggling in some areas, and so you don't really have the faith to ask for the things you
really need or want.....you feel that because you are not fully obeying, and not living up to the standard of The Family International,
and are struggling to make it and you know you can't keep all the rules all the time, and maybe this makes you feel like because
of that you are not qualified to receive the blessing of God.....then you are living under the Law.
Then you are living under a "Godfather" mentality instead of a "Father God" one.
You are seeking God desperately so that He does not hurt you or destroy you or judge you in some way by allowing bad things
to happen to you.
So you serve Him and do your best to obey and pay your tithe out of fear of God retaliating if you don't!
Just like the Maffia protects those who pay them off each month, and those who refuse to pay they burn down their business
or beat them up or worse!
That's not what God is like, so if you have that mentality of God, it is the wrong concept and you need to get to know Him
and learn to hang out with Him.
You are not living under the Law of Love, God's only real law, as He loves you unconditionally apart from your performance.
You feel bad about not being able to do all of these things, and not being able to sell as many products as you should, and
not having the faith you should because some one has been telling you you are not living up to the standard.
Or you know you aren't because of comparing yourself with others who are shiners, or doing "better" than you are. Or you are
letting yourself come under the condemnation of the devil because the devil doesn' t want you to know the true love of God,
and how much God really loves you. It has to be a revelation. You have to get the revelation of how much God really loves
you, apart from your performance.
If God only loved and blessed His children according to their performance, or how much fruit they bore, how many hours they
did this or than or how much they were producing, and how well they kept all the rules and checklists, then He wouldn't be
very loving......because.....the Word says that even if you keep the whole law and did your best and even offend in one point,
you are guilty of breaking the whole law.
So what are you going to do, how are you getting judged or evaluated here? Are you getting evaluated by someone who is able
to keep every jot and tittle of the rules , guidelines, requirements and responsibilities , never makes a mistake, and can
tell you where you are in error, and help you get back on the track by his sample?
Do you have role models that set the standard as to where you should be spiritually, and tell you when you are in good relationship
You most likely do not, because even your leadership who are not living in the same situations on the field as most of The
Family is , cannot really tell you what to do because it just is not possible for them to live the same way, and they say
that they can't do all you do because they are too busy taking care of you, so where does that standard come from? The Bible?
Can you imagine if you were required to keep all the Bible has to say, and every jot and tittle, and even if you did you still
would be millions of miles away from what the righteousness of God really is, and would fall short, and that is why God's
Love is all based upon His unconditional love and grace, and not your performance.
I learned a lot about prayer in The Family too, and that got me going, I think, on the right foot , praying for people, but
one thing I could never quite perfect was that desperate praying stuff, where you get down on your face and cry in strong
crying and tears, in desperation, in order to get a hold of God.
That kind of prayer is just a lot of pentecostal emotionalism, and doesn't move God one inch! You can cry and cry and carry
on, speak in tongues at the top of your voice, and beat your breasts, whip your back or whatever you think it takes to get
you "in the spirit" or to where God will listen to you.
Do you really think God is like that? That God won't answer you or even listen to you unless you throw ashes on your head
, and get down on your face in strong crying and tears in desperation?
Don't get me wrong, I do believe in prayer , and in fervent prayer. Prayer that is from the heart and sincere, and effectual.
I do believe in praying in Jesus name, but the Word of God does not say anywhere that we should come to God in desperation,
with strong crying and in tears. You cannot find any verse in the Bible that says that.
There is a difference between New Testament praying and Old testament praying. You cannot move God by praying the way Daniel
did , or Moses did. They were mediators for their people in those days, and that is why they prayed the way they did. We don't
have to be desperate. Desperate really means "having no hope" or "without hope" you are in despair, and discouraged , and
disheartened, and there is no hope whatsoever in sight!
We are not supposed to pray like we have no hope. We are supposed to pray with joy and expectancy! In faith! Having hope!
all of your desperate prayers do not move God. God has already moved! He did the best he could do ! He sent Jesus to die for
our sins, and sent the Holy Spirit to be our guide, comforter, teacher , helper, and inspiration!
The Word says to come BOLDY before the throne of grace that we may have help in tie of need! It doesn't say to come with our
tails tucked between our legs in guilt and shame.
It says to enter His courts with thanksgiving and praise! Stop centering on yourself and how bad you are, and look unto Jesus
and how good He is and what He did! That is what God is looking at every time you pray in Jesus name! The Father is looking
at Jesus and all the judgment that came upon Jesus for our sins. It's only Jesus!
You can't move God! God already moved by letting us be born again and coming to dwell within us, and putting His kingdom within
us! What you are seeking for , whatever it is you are praying so desperately for, you already have it on the inside of your
spirit man, the born again part of you! You don't have to ask for it, all you have to do is acknowledge it and thank God
for it, and learn how to appropriate it!
Learn how to transfer it from your spirit man to your flesh, and this life. No matter what it is.
Now we can pray for others, to know God better, that they may receive the revelation of His love and pray for their needs
But when you are praying for faith.....you already got it! Joy.....you already got it!.....more love....it is already on
the inside of you!
All of the power of God....all of the gifts of the Spirit....and fruits of the Spirit are all on the inside of you, including
all the same power that raised Jesus from the dead!
You don't need angels or spirit guides to bring it to you, or put it in your heart, or whisper it in your ears. You already
have it there on the inside of your spirit man, the part of you that has been born again and filled with the Holy Spirit!
We just need to learn the process of making it work for us now!
Praying for God to release His power for whatever you need! release those finances! Release that healing power! I am not sure
that even David Berg realized what he was saying when he said in the letters "Love-light" and" Look of Love" "you are a power
house of God's power!"
But The Family International believes in this "everything that happens is God's will" deception. or "Nothing happens but what
God allows to happen" which is against what the scriptures teach! You will never find any passages in the Bible to justify
If everything that happens is the will of God, and nothing happens without God's permission, then you will have to admit that
when you do not get answers to your prayers that it is God's will not to answer them. You know that old Family teaching that
isn't even in the Bible, "God always answers prayers, but His answer is sometimes Yes, sometimes No, and sometimes, Wait."
God answers every prayer according to His will, and if the Bible says to pray for it, then you can have it, it is your right!
No waiting or no for the answer! Why would God refuse you His will?
If you pray for healing and you are not healed, you say "well I guess it isn't God's will to heal me". So you just accept
the disease or whatever , and wait for your death? If your child got killed in an accident, you just accept that as God's
will for your life? Then it is no wonder why you do not have faith for God to answer your prayers! Before you pray you already
have the attitude that if He doesn't answer that it must not be His will!
Don't you know if a thing is God's will or not before you pray? If God's Word says that He will heal us if we ask in Jesus
name, that means there are no exceptions. You just read God's will. So if you are not healed then there is nothing wrong with
God or His will or His Word.
Like David Berg says in Prayer Power....the trouble is not with God! The trouble lies with you and your faith, and unbelief,
or hardness of heart, slow to believe His promises, or the person you are praying for. After all , didn't Jesus say that if
you had the faith you can tell this mountain to be cast into the sea and it would obey you?
Don't say that when God doesn't answer prayer that it wasn't His will for you to be healed or it wasn't His will for that,
or it must have been His will, etc., or God took my daughter etc. No God didn't do that! He doesn't take children away, and
people away from their loved ones.
God's Word promises us that we will live a long life if we are honoring Him...at least to 70 years old, and possibly eighty!
There are many people who live longer than that! So if someone dies before that time, 70, then the devil snuffed their life
out and it was not God's will for them to die at that time.
I do not believe the Bible expresses that, and Jesus, and Elisha, and Paul proved it by raising people from the dead! It
was not their time to go! Jesus proved that by healing many who had diseases that were killing them! He didn't sit there and
say, "well, sorry, there isn't anything I can do for you, your number is just up, that's all!" No no no, He never told anyone
that, He healed ALL who came to Him!
You cannot attribute the works of Satan to God. Bad things that happen in this world are not because of God's judgments or
retribution for sin. If you think that then you do not know the Gospel and why Jesus died on the cross.
The crucifixion of Jesus made all the difference in the world. If it didn't , then it wasn't worth to send Jesus to suffer
and die like He did., if it wasn't going to pay for ALL of our sins. Past present and future. I know that is what David Berg
taught. Past present and future sins...ALL. So why would anyone have to suffer the judgments of God for their sins if Jesus
already took upon Himself the sins of the whole world?
That would be negating what Jesus did and minimizing it! What a slap in the face to God! That is very close to being anti-Christ!
Not realizing what Jesus really did for us and how free we really are!
Are you really free? Or still under the bondage of the Law? Have you got the revelation of God's unconditional love and grace
for you? If not, then that is what you should seek the Lord for, and He will show you that He is not the author and orchestrator
of all the bad things that have happened to you.
It says in the Bible that God only gives us the good things from above!
Jam 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no
variableness, neither shadow of turning.
There is not even a shadow of turning with God! He does not change from a good creature one day to an evil creature the next.
He is always good, always loving, always merciful, and His love and mercy endure forever!
May God bless you and show you how much He really loves you. The revelation of God's love for you will change your life and
set you free from your fears and worries. It will turn the lights on, and you will start to really enjoy an unconditional
relationship and sweet fellowship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost! There isn't anything on this earth
that can compare to really knowing the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, this is real eternal life , now!
Isn't that what David Berg taught? "All this and heaven too!" Salvation is now! The heavenly life , eternal life , starts
now! Your eternal relationship with Jesus starts now and you will grow in the Spirit and His Word daily as you learn to appropriate
His Word and listen to His voice leading you and guiding you in His love.
Otherwise , you will be hearing all these other confusing and contradicting voices that will get you down, discourage you,
condemn you and convince you that you cannot hear God, and are not in fellowship with Him. That is what those "Tom"-like spirits
will do . They will lead you on, and give you helpful words, and keep leading you on until you depend upon them and they will
seem like they are helpful and helping you, until the day when you notice something strange , that you are getting burned
out, and you need their help, but they will not be there to help you, instead they will turn on you and try to devour you
like the roaring lions they really are!
Because you have been calling on their help instead of God's help.
You have been seeking counsel from other spirits instead of the Holy Spirit, who God sent especially to be there for us! Not
spirit helpers. You may have angels around you, people may even have seen their angels at one time or an other, but they will
just do their Job, Jesus tells them what to do, you don't have to worry about that.
We are not supposed to communicate with those angels , or other spirits except the Holy Spirit. When you are communicating
the Holy Spirit you are connecting with all three! But the Word says it is ONE SPIRIT!
We have to have our sense of values right. What is better, to have an open channel to the one true God and Jesus Christ through
the Holy Spirit, our creator who loves us and died for us,
Or to have open channels to other spirits that you don't even know, can't see, never heard of before, are not God, or even
who can never love you the way God does, and who in fact hate you and are working against you, trying to get your attention
off of God and Jesus and His Word and onto them!
1Cr 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
1Cr 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free;
and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 4:4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
God Bless you
With love, Charlie
