A Book About The Village Carpenter World Wide Ministries

          Hi, My name is Charles Lee Emerson.  If you go to our website:

you will see that we publish Christian Books.  But our mission is much bigger than that. We are praying to reach 200,000,000 Souls for the Kingdom or our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ… The Village Carpenter.

          This book is to be an encouragement to all those who are seeking… To all those who want to be a part of something big… To all those who want to be a part of God’s Family in Heaven!  Please join us!

          We are always adding new authors and ministry helps content to our over 60 websites. We have grown from a one (1) page website in 2005, to a five (5) page website in 2006, then we had to add more pages to make ten (10) pages in 2007.  Now the great news is that we have grown to unlimited WebPages in 2008. Your Book or CD could be next and you could be our next Author!

          We at The Village Carpenter World Wide Ministries have a service we provide to Christians that we call The Village Carpenter Publishing House.  If you investigate our website at:, you will learn all about us or you can read our book “… A Book About The Village Carpenter Publishing House…”

          Let us now move on to Encouraging words to help you see clearly God’s plan for your life!


          Good Morning To All Our Authors,

          November 18, 2008

          As we said last time, we are so blessed and privileged to be able to work with you! Some of you have been with us from the start. Some of you are brand new.  Some of you are in the middle of a book project.  We are praying for you all!

          God has put it into our hearts to write you a word of encouragement.  We too are authors… We too need encouragement… We too have been tempted of the devil to… Give up… Move on to other things… Quit!

          Praise God He will never leave us nor for sake us.  We are told to Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5

          We were praying one day about our situation of not being able to meet some of our obligations on time.  We remember when this happened before.  We remember how God encouraged us by sending us a Royalty Check. It was not much… But it was an encouragement to us to keep going.  We remember June 13, 2008 of a dream God gave us of three of our authors… How they were prospering… One even got a new car with a price tag in the window of over $40,000.  We want to encourage you now to Never Give Up!

          God has promised us that we will finish well… If we never give up.  We are old enough to remember Sir Winston Churchill’s words… NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!  Since our last email to you (which we have attached below for those of you who are new)… We have grown even more… We now have over 350 websites and collectively have published over 340 books, to God be the glory!

          We are told that Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Daniel 9:24

          We are not just writing books.  We are putting an end to sins.  We are bringing in everlasting righteousness.  We are speaking the vision and prophecy to anoint the most Holy.

          We must remember that we are sent!  The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you. Zechariah 4:9

          We are now praying to acquire a large property to house our ministry.  We plan to have Authors, Editors, Ministers, Poets, Proofreaders, Publishers and Writers all working with us to get out 4.7 billion books so we can reach 200,000,000 Souls for the Kingdom.  Please join us in this prayer...

          While discussing it, the thought of security came up.  God spoke to our spirits that we could live on the property to hopefully deter vandalism.

          We do not want others to mock… We have counted the cost… We will finish well.  For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?  Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Luke 14:28-30

          We used to be a Pilot in the Vietnam War and later in the Ohio State National Guard.

          Many times, we have talked about flying again.  Our ministry is growing at such a rate that the thought of flying to visit our authors and their ministries has crossed our minds.  While at a recent visit with one of my sons who is shortly to become a Lawyer, the discussion came up of buying a jet to travel with.  He has done his research and has several in consideration.  Again, God has spoken to our spirits and given us hope that the thought of flying again is very real!

          We need to remember that we should be like our Jesus.  Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. John 4:34

          We have gotten letters from many countries wanting our services and for us to come to visit them.  Australia, China, Israel, Nigeria and The Democratic Republic of The Congo just to name a few.

          We must remember who has sent us.  We must remember the work He has sent us to do.  We must remember our greater witness.  But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.  John 5:36

          As my son and I talked, he pointed out that his new position will be with an international law firm who has offices in China.  Again, God reminded us of the letter we received from a printer in China who wants to do business with us.  To God Be The Glory!

          We will finish our course with joy.  We will continue to testify the gospel of the grace of God.  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24

          We were recently talking with a woman in the Caribbean.  We asked her if she was a Christian?  She paused… Then said: “I am working on it.”  She than went on to tell how she listens to Bible Study everyday on the radio and that she has heard them mention our website on the radio… In the Caribbean!

          Again, God has shown us that our work is not in vain.  He is using our works, our books, and our testimonies all over the world for the salvation of souls.  So remember… Never, Never, Never Give Up!

          We will remember that The Lord will make short work here upon the earth.  For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. Romans 9:28

          Now… Let us share with you our daily devotion.

November 18, 2008

Finishing Well

          We sing the song, "I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back," but why is it that so many people do?  There seems to be an epidemic of Christians who begin well but finish poorly.  Let me share seven crucial characteristics that will help you to finish well.

1. Intimacy with Christ.

         Our highest calling is to grow in our knowledge of Christ and to make Him known to others.  Does our desire to know Christ exceed all other aspirations?  If not, whatever is taking His place in the center of our affections must yield to Him if we are to know the joy of bearing spiritual fruit.  A key secret of those who finish well is to focus more on loving Jesus than on avoiding sin.  The more we love Jesus, the more we will learn to put our confidence in Him alone.

2. Fidelity With Spiritual Disciplines

          Spiritual disciplines such as prayer, fellowship, study, worship, and submission are not ends in themselves, but means to the end of intimacy with Christ and spiritual formation.  When left to itself, however, any one of these disciplines tends to decline and decay.  An infusion of directed intentionality and effort is necessary to sustain order and growth and to bring repeated times of personal renewal.

3.  A Biblical Perspective On

The Circumstances of Life.

         Part of the purpose of our suffering and trials is to drive us to dependence on God alone.  God responds by revealing more of Himself to us.  This knowledge increases our faith and our capacity to trust His character and His promises through the times we do not understand His purposes and His ways.  When we view our circumstances in light of God's character instead of God's character in light of our circumstances, we come to see that God is never indifferent to us, and that He uses suffering for our good so we will be more fully united to Christ.

4.  A Teachable, Responsive, and Humble Spirit.

          Those who finish well maintain an ongoing learning posture through the seasons of their lives.  Humility and responsive obedience are the keys to maintaining a teachable spiritHumility is the disposition in which we displace self through the enthronement of Christ in our lives and realize that all of life is about trust in God.  Obedience is the application of biblical faith in that which is not seen, and that which is not yet.  As we mature in Christ, we learn to trust God's character and promises in spite of ambiguity or trials.

5.  A Clear Sense of Personal Calling.

          God has called each of us to a purposeful journey sustained by faithfulness and growing hope.  This calling or vocation transcends our occupations and endures beyond the end of our careers.  As we seek the Lord's guidance in developing a personal vision and clarity of mission, we move beyond the level of tasks and accomplishments to the level of the purpose for which we were created.

6. Healthy Relationships with

                                  Resourceful People.

          Relationships such as spiritual mentoring, servant leadership and personal and group accountability are valuable resources that encourage, equip, and exhort.  People who finish well do not do so without the caring support of other growing members of the body of Christ.  These relationships help us to increase in intimacy with Christ, maintain the needed disciplines, clarify our long-term perspective, sustain a teachable attitude, and develop our purpose and calling.

          7. Ongoing Ministry Investment In The

                     Lives Of Others.

          Spirit-filled living requires us to discover and develop the spiritual gifts we have received and exercise them through the Spirit's power for the edification of others.  Believers who finish well are marked by ongoing outreach and sacrificial ministry for the good of other people.

          Those who squander the resources, gifts, experiences, and hard-learned insights God has given them by no longer investing them in the lives of others soon wither and withdraw.

          What does it take to finish well?  Taking to heart the above seven characteristics will help you finish well day by day, as you run with endurance the race that is set before you.

          Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. Hebrews 12:1

More Encouraging Words

          Good Morning To All Our Authors,

          August 11, 2008

          We are so blessed and privileged to be able to work with you!  Some of you have been with us from the start. Some of you are brand new.  Some of you are in the middle of a book project.  We are praying for you all!

          Go to our website at: and you will see that we have published over fifty books since July of last year.  Some books we have authored, the other books are for other authors, and yours could be next!

          Our website is always under construction.  We have grown from a one (1) page website in 2005, to a five (5) page in 2006, then we had to add more space to make ten (10) pages in 2007.  Now the great news is that your joining us in ministry has caused us to grow to unlimited space in 2008.  It's only August and we have thirty five (35) websites up and running!  Praise God and Hallelujah!!!

          You count them while you visit and you probably will miss a couple... They are hidden from the general public.  However, you as authors need to know that on the Welcome Home Page there is a sidebar on the left.  There we have all of you as authors listed along with an alphabetical listing of ministry items.  For example: at the top of the list is A Website Dedication this is what we told you when we started about our hearts cry for 200,000,000 (that is 200 million) souls for the Kingdom.  We, Ginger and I cannot do it alone.  We need your help!  You have agreed to help by putting your testimony into print to the salvation of souls!  Praise God!!!

          You can help us by spreading the word about putting Christian testimonies into print.  You can refer family, friends and even new people that you meet to our About Us page where we tell the story of what we do as a ministry and publisher.  Let us also help you with ideas of what to write about ... We have recently lost a good friend who went home to be with Jesus.  Connie; his wife, was having difficulty with losing her husband Clyde.  The Lord prompted us to publish a book to help Connie with her grief.  The book: "You Can Journal Your Bereavement and Grief" it has basic Holy Bible passages to help with the loss of a loved one as well as space to write about their feelings, so the reader… Participator can later help others of their family and friends when they are touched with a similar loss!  You are also welcome to use this book when the need arises.

          We try to encourage Christians to put their testimony into print.  The Bible says: "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony..." Revelation 12:11

          We even published a book about this topic.  It is: "FOR I AM GOD."  As we said above... We have all of you as authors listed along with an alphabetical listing of ministry items. “A Picture of You” is an interesting way to tell people that you have their picture on our website.  Remember, this is your website too! Remember... Our Ministry slogan that was in the first letter we sent you?  It said: REMEMBER: "OUR ENERGY WILL HELP YOU SAVE YOUR ENERGY."  God has richly blessed us with the tools to reach the lost for Jesus!

          This is you’re website too... Use it to the Glory of God!  Along with your first book, we sent you 250 free business cards with your book title and our website listed there.  Use them to promote your book, use them to promote our (yours too) website to the salvation of souls.  We are praying for you, Please keep praying for us!

          Let us caution you there is the “Hell Listen In” link.  My heart sank when I first heard it!

          Jesus tells us: There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

          And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

          And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

          But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

          And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

          Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

          Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

          And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

          And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. Luke 16:19-31

          Need we say more?  We wept over the souls; that are there, when we first heard this!

          We pray for you now... That God will give you a REVIVAL in your spirit as you hear this and continue to serve Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

          Jesus told Brother Jesse Duplantis that when God said He would wipe away all tears, in Revelation 7:17… For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

          And in Revelation 21:4… And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away, He was also talking about His own eyes when He says: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.  Matthew 7:23

          Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. Matthew 25:41

          But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. Luke 13:27

          Now for the good news: The two hidden links.  One is the “*” at the bottom of the side bar, at the very bottom.  This is where you can send future authors to pick out their book cover.  Check it out... There are 22 of them!  The other hidden link is on the Contact Us page just below the Vietnam Vets… You must read this.  It is again an “*” this link goes to a video for Vietnam era Special Forces training.

          If we do not stop here, we will try to tell you everything we offer on our website.  God has surely blessed us with many tools to help build families one soul at a time.  We just cannot stop seeking others to help us to reach 200,000,000 souls for the Kingdom!  You can read all about it on our website:  Hope you go there; hope you will join us, together we will rejoice in Heaven with Our Lord and Savior, The King of King's, Jesus Christ!

          You all as part of our ministry now have an email address at our website.  You can use it for any thing God prompts you... SOULS, SOULS, SOULS!

          We look forward to working with you on your next book and we continue to Pray For You as you minister for Our Lord And Savior Jesus Christ... The Village Carpenter.

More Encouraging Words

          We know that Jesus said:

           The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

          We have many authors that have been attacked by the devil to steal their goods, to try to kill them and to try to destroy their ministry.  We are also told:

           And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12:12

          And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you. 1 Thessalonians 4:11

          Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

          One of our authors was in full time ministry.  The devil attacked and destroyed their family, complete ministry mailing list and contact information.  God has faithfully like Job, given back a family and is now restoring their ministry!

          One of our authors traveled many hundreds of miles to minister to a congregation of only nine.  God was faithful to provide for traveling expenses and food and shelter!

          One of our authors has invited my wife and I to go to India to minister to the people there.  We are now praying for Gods guidance and provision for this possible trip in the near future!

          One of our authors had his foot crushed in an accidental fall.  God is in the process of restoring his mobility with a new replacement joint in his ankle!  God could have instantly healed him… But we all know that God has His sovereign Will and there is sometimes a reason to be in the hospital… To witness to someone who may be at deaths door.

Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. Jeremiah 31:16

Many Authors have become sick.

          For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. Jeremiah 30:17

          One of our authors was attacked with a perforated colon… Doctors said emergency surgery was needed.  Our friend and minister went to immediate prayer and asked others to also pray… After two weeks in the hospital, they released him and said they had never seen a perforated colon heal itself internally with out surgery!  Praise God… We know the healer!

          One of our authors was attacked and had all their many churches destroyed in a war… God is right now taking care of their people and the testimony shall come to pass!  We know the outcome will be for His Glory!

          All we authors are to have a part in raising up the tribes of Jacob… We are to have a part in restoring the preserved of Israel… We are to be a light unto the Gentiles… We are to have a part in God’s salvation unto the end of the earth!  This is a High Calling of God!

          And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Isaiah 49:6

         One of our authors was attacked as he was preparing his manuscript for publishing.  His computer suddenly and with out warning… Quite and would not boot up!  Months later we received a call from a very happy author who reported that God had provided for a brand new computer… And it was the very computer that was prayed about!

          We too have had this problem… We were working on one of our author’s eleventh book when all of a sudden… The Evil one physically attacked and tried to steal a family member and to poison the author with witchcraft!

          This series of events lead to a three-book testimonial that completely vindicated the author and brought to light the evils that are present even in our court systems!  God puts up judges and God takes them down!

          Nevertheless the Lord raised up judges, which delivered them out of the hand of those that spoiled them. Judges 2:16

          As this was going on, our own computer locked up and would not boot up.  We tried many ways to get it to come on to no avail.  Praise God for a brother who knew how to remove the hard drive and install it into another computer with the aide of a special order cable so we could down load all the contents onto an external hard-drive thus recovering all the files of the manuscript.  The devil did not want this book published!  He did not want to be exposed!

          These books are published and this author is now appearing on International TV and Internet twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week all around the World Wide Web.  To God Be The Glory!          

          One of our authors was attacked and killed and God brought them back to life three times!  What a wonderful testimony to the power of God!

          Jesus said:

          And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:28

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. John 11:25

        Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. Revelation 2:10

           One of our authors has been overtaken by his own spirit… Being lead down a path of destruction.  Calling his own brothers false prophets… Leaders of the blind…  

          He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. Proverbs 25:28

Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! Ezekiel 13:3

We are told:

          Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Galatians 6:1

          When a brother attempted to softly speak words of rebuke… Saying: “Thus saith the Lord God…” The evil spirit in our brother rose up verbosely speaking falsely…

        And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient. 2 Timothy 2:24

          To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. Titus 3:2

          But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17

          We as publisher had trouble putting together new book covers.  For about ninety days none of our book covers were working.  As we continued to pray and trust God… He opened up to us a way to do our own book covers and we are now in the process of making our own book covers for all of our authors!

          One of our authors went to another book supplier.  They after being in the business many years longer than us… Could not even get their book up and running.  They even came to us asking for help.  We have the problem solved… God is merciful!  Hallelujah!

          One of our authors wants to quit.  Pull all their books off the market.  Fearful that the income may change their way of lift!  We have tried to explain that God will take care of all the details of our life… If we just trust Him and His plan!

          This very book came about because of our own being tempted to quit.  Satan does not want the testimony of Christians put into print.  He knows The Word of God!  He knows that he is defeated already… But he is still trying to deceive us into believing that we should not do it!

          And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.  Revelation 12:11

             He; Satan, also knows that The Word of God says that one day we will say:  This is he?

 Lastly, we must say that the devil is defeated… We are now in the process of having all of our books for all of our authors up on, the world’s largest retailer of books!  All our books are also available in any bookstore in the world and can be found by any library!  To God Be The Glory!  The Story of Salvation is in all of our books… People do and will be saved for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ!



Only Jesus has risen from the dead!

Only Jesus can deliver us from all sin!

          Dear reader, I will tell you now, if you are not in right standing with God, and are still living in your sins, don’t put it off any longer; get right with God now.  He knows all about you anyhow, and the price for your redemption from your sins has already been paid.

          If we (you and I) confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, (all of them) and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

          You are not reading this by accident … somebody is concerned about your soul.  Just accept by faith the shed blood of Jesus Christ for payment of your sins.

          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.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5-6

          Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. I Peter 2:24

          Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 1 Peter 1:18-19

          You have nothing to lose but your old sinful life, pride, hate, guilt, fear, unbelief, loneliness and all other sins, Pray to Jesus, ask Him to save your soul.

    The words of this song will tell you how to come to Him:

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidd’st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come!  I come!

Just as I am, and waiting not,
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come!  I come!

Just as I am, though tossed about,
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings within, and fears without,
O Lamb of God, I come!  I come!

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need, in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come!  I come!

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thy love unknown,
Hath broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come!  I come!

Charlotte Elliott (1789-1871)

          Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1

          Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7

There are hindrances in this life.  They are called: unclean spirits, evil spirits or devils.  They affect us all.


If you in your deep heart want to respond… But there is a hindrance, pray this prayer:

         Lord Jesus, I ask you to help me come to you.  I ask you to rebuke the unclean spirits, evil spirits or devils that are hindering me right now.  I ask you to bind them up with the three cords of your shed Blood that can not be broken.  I ask you to cast them into the fire of the pit forever, never to return.  Now Lord Jesus… Come into my heart and Save me now… Thank You Lord Jesus.  I now receive you as my Lord and Savior.  I ask you to authorize your Holy Ghost to fill me with His Power and Love.  AMEN!


          Charles Lee Emerson, Minister spent 45 years in business while serving The Lord Jesus Christ in ministry at the same time.  On September 5, 2006 Jesus called Charles to take “Exclusive Rights” to go to the people and investigate and write books to document Signs, Wonders, and Miracles that He is doing right now.  The Book of Acts was just a start of what God is doing.  Today He is very busy, but we have not seen anything yet!  Daily Signs, Wonders and Miracles are taking place at a phenomenal pace and God told Charles they would continue to increase in intensity until Jesus comes!

          Charles has traveled to Alaska, Cambodia, Canada, Guam, Japan, Vietnam and Wake Island.  In recent years, Charles has traveled the US and Canada and God has opened his eyes to the lack in many churches.  Many people today are simply “Playing Church.”  They are under a “Curse of Religious Spirits” or “Religiosity.”

       Charles ministers in churches, in speaking engagements and in his writings to impart the end-time truth that “God is who He says He is!”  And “God will do what He said He will do!”  The purpose of this writing is to prove “WHO GOD IS.”      

Charles has written many poems published on the World Wide Web.  He lives in a home in the country outside Ludlow Falls, Ohio USA.  He has two wonderful Sons and has gained two wonderful Daughters plus seven wonderful Grand Children.  Amen.  Hallelujah!
