Assurance

By Tony Alamo

"Without faith [in God's Word] it is impossible to please [God]" (Heb.11:6). After the gift of initial salvation, the Christian is commanded to walk in a new life, the Spiritual life, 1  which is a life of letting Christ continue His incarnation in the Christian's human body, living and doing the same kind of work He did in His own human body approximately two thousand years ago. 2  If Christ is living and working both in and through us, the Father knows Christ is in us living and working God's work, and the Father, by our obedience and cooperation with Christ, is assured that we are His. We know that He is ours because His "Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God" (Rom. 8:16).

Knowing that God belongs to us gives us the courage and confidence to know "if God be for us, who can be against us?" (Rom. 8:31). And if God be with us, "a thousand [can] fall at [our] side, [and] ten thousand at [our] right hand; but it will not come near [us]. Only with [our] eyes shall we behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because [we] have made the Lord, which is [our] refuge even the Lord our habitation" (Psa. 91: 7-9 orig. text and KJV).

Because of God's presence in us, the world can see that we, God's ministers, are God's authority in this world. 3  The Holy Spirit in both the original and King James Version Bibles wants to drive this lesson home in our minds, hearts, and souls. "We who are the ministers of God's Word are the authorities of God on earth." Listen to the Holy Spirit when He tells the world to "let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For [God's] rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil [works of the ungodly rulers of darkness and those who follow them]." The Spirit continues, "Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power?" God's rulers "are the ministers of God...for He beareth not the sword [the Word of God] in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger of wrath upon him that doeth evil" (Rom. 13:1-4). This means "The law is...for the lawless" (I Tim. 1:9). Those who break the law of God are to be taken to law and given the penalty which God prescribes in His Word. 4  Christ said, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil [to show the world that the law can be kept by weak human flesh if the Triune God abides in the bodies and the spirits of humans]" (Matt. 5:17).

If God's law is not implemented, we see a world of rebellion and lawlessness, as we see in the world today. This is because the rulers of darkness that sit in high places have replaced God's law with another law, the law of sin and death. 5  The world is no longer a safe place to live. If the world were to be a safe place to live, it would have to submit itself to the law of God and its oracles, and to the true authorities of God, which again are the ministers of God. 6  Revelation 2:26-27 plainly shows that the authorities of God are God's ministers, those who keep His commandments: "He that overcometh [all evil] and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron [the rod of iron is God's unchanging, unshakable Word, the law]." We cannot keep the law of Moses and rule over the Pharaohs of the world with a rod of iron, God's Word, as Moses did, unless we assure the Lord that we belong to Him (Rom. 8:2).

The secular authorities do not minister God's Word. Nor do they keep God's law, or rule by it. They are the exact opposite of God's law, rule, and authority. We can obey all the rules of secular government as long as we don't obey them if they tell us to disobey God's Word, God's law, or God's authority. 7  If secular authorities command us to disobey God, we are to be exactly like Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Job, Jeremiah, Daniel, the three Hebrew children, the prophets, and the apostles, who were God's authorities. 8  All were the ministers of God, and all disobeyed secular authorities whenever they were commanded to do anything against God's will.

Daniel and the three Hebrew children quickly disobeyed the unregenerated secular authorities of their day. For this, God delivered them from the fiery furnace and from the lion's den. 9  This showed the secular authorities and the world that "there is no power [no authority] but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God" (Rom. 13:1). Daniel and the three Hebrew children were the authorities of God, God's ministers, and they had God's power in their lives working for them.

Nebuchadnezzar was not the authority or the power of God. God made Nebuchadnezzar walk on all fours and eat grass like an ox for seven years to show him who the real authority and power was. 10  After the seven years, Nebuchadnezzar gave glory to God by saying, "I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto Heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honored Him that liveth forever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doeth according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou?" (Dan. 4:34-35).

This is no fairy tale. This actually happened. I know because God showed me. I was a person who once had more ego than anyone else I knew on earth because of the tremendous things I had done in the business world, along with many other things. I didn't believe God existed, but when God's awesome power fell upon me, my ego instantly evaporated. I felt like less than a speck of dust, and all I wanted was for God to tell me what He wanted me to do. I was grieved because I didn't know what I could do to show Him that I was incredibly afraid to meet Him on Judgment Day without having done something for Him.

When a person runs into the power of God, as Nebuchadnezzar, the Apostle Paul, I, and many others have, they will know that no man can say to God, "What doest Thou [or what, God, are You doing]?" 11  That would never enter into the mind of anyone who really knows God. A person that knows God will not do anything unless they definitely hear from God.

How can anyone be so foolish as to call heathen governments God's rulers? In order to be a ruler of God, you must first assure Him that you belong to Him. Are secular rulers the rulers of God when they take Bibles away from everyone, when they condone abortion, when they burn men, women, and children in Waco, when they murder millions of people all over the world, when they condone adultery, fornication, and homosexuality, when they hand out condoms in school, when they condone and support the anti-Christ doctrine of the Roman church, when they take Christian dollars to support such evils, when they close true churches of God down, when they falsely accuse God's rulers on earth, and when they pay false witnesses to lie about God's rulers and send them to prison? Are these God's rulers? No, they are not. I don't believe anyone thinks they are. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph. 6:12).

It is the secular leaders who will ask you to take the mark of the beast. If you take this mark in your forehead or right hand, God's Word says you will spend eternity in Hell. 12  There is the living God, 13  and there is a real devil. 14  There are the real rulers of God on this earth, and there are the real rulers of the darkness in high places on earth. They are the very ones that are against the true rulers, God's ministers.

Obeying satanic kings or rulers when they tell you to disobey God is the same as worshipping Satan. This is because you are disobeying God's authority by keeping the commandments of Satan. We are to tell all those who tempt us to serve or to worship Satan, which is contrary to God, the same things Jesus told the devil when he tempted Him to serve or to worship him: "Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve" (Matt. 4:10). Here Jesus plainly shows us that we are to strongly and steadfastly reject and oppose not only Satan but all of his satanic kings or rulers, those who would tempt us with such evil. We are not to use worldly weapons like guns, bullets, swords, bombs, poison gas, anthrax, or anything other than the Word of God, which is the most powerful weapon in the world. 15  If it were not, Jesus would not have chosen it with which to fight Satan. 16

Jesus is God's authority on earth. 17  All those having the life of Jesus in them must study the Word that they might grow to the fullness of Christ's stature, 18  so that Christ in them is able to continue as God's authority through this last age till He appears in the eastern skies "with ten thousands of His saints" (Jude 14). "Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him" (Rev. 1:7).

I pray for all men, including the secular authorities and kings, because I know if they don't become as I am, a born-again, believing Christian who keeps all of God's commandments, they will spend eternity in Hell with no possibility of escape. 19  This doesn't mean a mere mortal life in Hell; it means an eternity there. 20

Before I knew God and the Word of God, which is God, I believed there was no Heaven or Hell, like most unsaved people in the world. After salvation, I might have continued believing such heresy if I hadn't found Heaven and Hell numerous times in the Word of God, and if I hadn't seen Heaven and Hell in many visions from God while fully awake with my eyes wide open, which is the same way I saw Jesus. 21

John Paul II, contrary to God's Word, says there's no Hell in the November/December 2001 special collector's edition of the U.S. News and World Report in an article entitled, "Mysteries of Faith." On page 51, paragraph 4, he states that Hell is not a real place but a state of mind, or a mere separation from God. The Bible doesn't say that. It says Hell is a real place prepared for Satan, his angels, and all those who disobey God. 22

Do you believe God, or do you believe heretics, such as the Pope? "But though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Gal. 1:8). Those preaching false doctrine, such as the heretics, are cursed. The Word of God tells us that heretics are not the authority of God on earth. The Apostle Paul tells us that if there is no eternity, no Hell, no Heaven, no hereafter, no resurrection, then what point is there being "baptized for the dead," that is being baptized for those who are dead in their sins and trespasses I Cor. 15:29), which means why should we be baptized into the death of Christ so that we can, by God's Spirit, resurrect into the spiritual life of self-denial and holiness of Christ 23  in order to preach the gospel to the lost, those who are dead in their sins and trespasses, that they might be saved and then they too be baptized for the dead to do the same things, I mean win sinners to Christ, 24  or why should we die out to the things of the world by the same baptism and resurrection into the spiritual world to preach the gospel to those who are dead in their sins and trespasses because they are yet in the world, and why should we stand in jeopardy, suffering persecution, trials, and tribulations every hour if there is no Heaven, no Hell, no long, long life, no hereafter after death and judgment? 25  Paul stated, "I die daily" to sin, Satan, self-will, and the world to assure the Triune God that he belongs to Him and not the world (I Cor. 15:31).

Paul also says there wouldn't be any profit or advantage in living a life which causes him to be persecuted by the ungodly people of the world, which he calls "beasts," if there were no hereafter, meaning resurrection unto life eternal or everlasting damnation. If there is no eternity, no Heaven, and no Hell, why live a holy consecrated life unto Christ? Paul says in this case we might as well "eat and drink; for to morrow we die" (I Cor. 15:32).

Then Paul cautions us to not listen to the heretics, saying, "Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners [meaning they corrupt godly behavior, conduct, and morals, which are God's conditions for us to enter Heaven]" (I Cor. 15:33).

Elisha hung out with Elijah every minute of the day, and received "a double portion of [his] spirit" (II Kin. 2:9). If you hang out with the godly, you too will be godly because their conversation and deeds are godly. If you hang out with anti-Christ heretics, you will become an anti-Christ heretic. Lifestyles are contagious. Jesus said, "Take heed what ye hear" (Mark 4:24). 26  God assures us all of Hell. There are many testimonies in God's Word, the Bible, demonstrating that Hell is a real place where disobedient souls are tormented eternally. 27

Many millions of people living today, including myself, have seen visions of Hell and heard the frustrated cries of souls who are shocked out of their wits by its existence when they arrive there and experience the utter, futile sorrow, pain, despair, and weeping. I've heard the voices in Hell crying, "Oh no, it's true!" and, "Oh no, it's me! Oh no, it's forever! Oh no, this is never going to end! Oh no, it's only going to get worse! Oh no, it's only going to get more painful! Oh no, I'm never going to have water again! Oh no, I'm never going to have rest again! Oh no, I cannot even sit down again! Oh no, this pain will only get worse and worse! Oh, please, no! Let me have another chance! Oh, please let this be a nightmare and let me soon awaken from it! But, oh no, it's not a nightmare, and oh, I shall never awaken from it! I am awake and I'm here in Hell, and it is real!" I heard them gnawing on their tongues for pain, heard teeth gnashing, and heard people weeping. 28  I could, in the spirit, sense the hatred they had for themselves for not having believed God's Word, for not having believed that Hell was real and that it was forever. 29  And I felt from them a cruel hatred for the false prophets who cunningly led them astray, making sure their souls would forever be tormented with many thousands of torments in Hell. "Oh no, this torture will never end!" And all over again, "Oh no, it's me! Oh no, I'm in Hell! Oh no, it's real!"

I've seen it, I've heard it, and it was more than enough to keep me seeking the Lord and letting Him have His way in me. I am God's authority on earth, and I can tell you with all authority from God that there is a Heaven, and there is a place just like this in Hell. People there are being tortured forever and saying the things I told you they were saying. If you don't believe the Bible, and if you don't believe the visions I've seen and heard, then let me say this: one day you will. If you wait until then, it will be too late. Remember, millions, as well as myself, who are alive today in this month of December, 2001, have seen Christ, have seen Heaven, and have seen Hell, and they have heard the voices of the souls who are currently being tormented there. 30

Christians have reported that the people's voices in their visions of Hell sounded like thousands of dogs all growling in unison. They said these voices could only growl out one word. That word was "mercy." Their pain was so intense that it caused them to hurtfully throw themselves against the pit, the side walls of Hell, every fraction of a second, just like the ionic pentameter of a metronome.

Some say Hell contradicts God's mercy, but ah! it verifies God's mercy. He died on the cross, shed His precious blood, was buried, rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven so that anyone who wanted to escape Hell could by allowing the Triune God's Spirit to enter them, giving them the power to do more than anything God commands. 31  That is what God's mercy is. If we want to, we can escape Hell by becoming born again of the Spirit. 32  But if we don't walk according to the New Testament law, which is "the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus," we are walking according to another law, a law which most people choose, a law that is called "the law of sin and death" (Rom. 8:2). God assures us in His Word that if we choose this law, we willingly and knowingly choose with our own will to spend eternity in Hell. 33  Now God doesn't will it to be that way. Otherwise, He wouldn't have come into this world in a human body and in His mercy showed us the only way to escape Hell and to enter Heaven. 34  He will give us His power to do it if we will only do what He says. 35  If people won't pay attention to His only way of escape from Hell, it doesn't take away from His mercy. It only shows a lack of mercy on the part of the person who refuses God's mercy. They refused the way of truth, and won't allow others to hear it. They are the unmerciful ones, and their fate is an eternity in Hell because of their denial of Christ and their false accusations against God, who is Christ.

We have to want to go to Heaven. We have to want to escape Hell in order to do what God commands us to do. We have to turn in our worthless life to gain the worthwhile life of God. 36  The old life must be buried in Christ's death, "For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection" (Rom. 6:4-5). We can no longer live an independent life, but have to become one with God, a member of Christ's Body. 37  "Ye are all one in Christ Jesus" (Gal. 3:28). Jesus tells His followers, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world... For all that is in the world [is]…lust [and]…is not of the Father, but is of the [devil]" (I John 2:15-16). We have to begin living a spiritual life, which is totally opposite of the carnal life. 38  "For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting" (Gal. 6:8). The fleshy, carnal, secular authorities will not live a spiritual life. Nor will they tell you these things. Hence, they cannot be the rulers or authorities of God.

My carnal philosophies that there was no Heaven or Hell quickly evaporated when God showed me many visions of Heaven and Hell. There isn't a demonic, impish scallywag on earth that could ever convince me now that there is not a Heaven and Hell or that Heaven and Hell are not forever. There are many others who are living today who have seen similar visions which correspond exactly with the scriptures.

It grieves me to see the unsaved people of the world living lives which will send their souls to Hell. I know they never will believe unless God breaks through their devilish, juvenile egos, just as He did Nebuchadnezzar, Paul, myself, and others.

When God tells us to "honor all men" (I Pet. 2:17), including the unregenerated, secular kings and authorities, He means we are to have pity upon them, pray for them, and witness to them so that they too might become saved, might know God as we know Him, and might forsake their secular, evil, dark employment of wickedness, as Moses, Paul, the prophets, the apostles, myself, and many others have to become ministers of God, God's authorities, God's rulers in this world. 39  Those who sow God's mercy are assured of God's mercy at judgment. 40  By sowing God's mercy to others, we are assured by God's Word that we shall escape an eternity in Hell and attain an eternity of happiness and joy in Heaven.

If we "draw nigh to God," we can be assured that "He will draw nigh to [us]" (Jas. 4:8). But "if [we] forsake Him, [we can be sure that] He will cast [us] off for ever" (I Chron. 28:9). "If we deny Him, He also will deny us" (II Tim. 2:12). He's a Jewish God, and He assures us that's the way He is. God says, "Assure Me that you belong to Me, and I'll assure you that I am, for the first time in your life, your God." He will be your God, fighting for you and protecting you. 41  He will give you His tremendous power over sin, Satan, lust, temptation, and your self-will. 42  He will give you the power to be "more than conquerors" in all things (Rom. 8:37). He will also give you His power over death, Hell, and the grave, as well as His power to "heal the sick [open blind eyes and heal the lame], cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils" (Matt 10:8). 43

Everything with God is conditional. 44  God assures us that we must assure Him that we are His before He assures us that He will be ours. Jesus gives us great assurance in these words: "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke [work] upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke [work] is easy, and My burden is light" (Matt. 11:28-30).

The Word of God is the most valuable commodity in the universe because the Word of God is true and because the Word of God is God. 45  The Word of God is more valid than any commodity in the universe because it is stable. 46 When we respect the validity of God's revelation in His Word, we are assured that we will attain faith from it. "He that believeth [God's Word]…shall be saved" (Mark 16:16). God is assured that people believe His Word when they do what His Word says. 47  The apostle James stated, "I will show thee my faith by my works" (James 2:18). "Without faith [in God's Word] it is impossible to please [God]" (Heb. 11:6). Also, God wants to be assured of our faith. He wants to be assured that we belong to Him. Another word for faith is assurance. God wants to be assured that we are His. If we do His will, He is assured of it. 48

If you ask Him to come into your heart, wash away all of your sins, and give you power over your flesh, and over your former self-life, He wants to be assured you will be His, a vessel for Him to live in and work in till the day you die. If you believe His Word to be valuable because it is eternal life, and if you never forget its value, He will be yours. God's valuable Word has already assured you that you are the most valuable thing to Him. You are His pearl of great price. 49  The great price that He paid for you was giving His life on the cross for you. 50  Now He wants you to give your worthless life to Him so that He can make His life in you both worthwhile and meaningful for eternity. 51  If you will do this by receiving His power in you every day by reading and praying, He will through His Word and prayer, assure you that He belongs to you, and He will do this right now. 52  He will give you something that silver, gold, diamonds, and rubies cannot buy. 53  He will give you His immortal life, and assure you of it by the Holy Spirit in you. 54  This means His presence will be with you and in you for victory over everything. 55  Let God receive the assurance that you are His now, and He will assure you that He is yours right now. Do this by saying this prayer:

Prayer

My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11

You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up the cross daily for the purpose of mortifying yourself, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.

Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, then submit yourself and do what the Word says, so that the Church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God's Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.

Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
