Switching Parents

by Tony Alamo

To enter the Kingdom of God, we must have the life of God's kingdom in us. 1  Because we are born of human parents, we are born into the human kingdom. It would be impossible for us to have been born into the human kingdom without human parents. For us to enter the Kingdom of God, we must be born of God. 2  God must become our parent, and we must become His children. The human kingdom we live in is full of sin and condemnation. 3  The Kingdom of God is a kingdom where no sin shall ever enter again. 4  It is the spiritual kingdom, the divine kingdom. 5  Everyone in the world has been born into the human kingdom, but to be in Heaven, we must be born one more time. This is an absolute necessity. We must be born into the spiritual kingdom, the Kingdom of God, by being born of God. 6

Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews with a carnal mind, asked Jesus, "How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?" (John 3:4). But Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus in terms of the spiritual everlasting kingdom, the Kingdom of God, the kingdom that can only be entered if we are born of water and of the Spirit. 7  This means our old former life or human history must first be buried in Christ's death. 8  We must reckon our former sinful way of life "to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Rom. 6:11). After our former human life is dead and buried at the cross in Christ's death, the beginning of our new history can be raised in Christ's resurrection, the eternal new life in Christ by the Spirit of God, and we can become members of the divine eternal kingdom. 9

The life we have is the life of whatever king dom we are in. If you are still a member of the human kingdom, you have mere human life, and the corrupt human nature or natural life, which is sinful, is the human life you are now living. 10  If you are a member of God's kingdom, you have God's life, which is the life of God's kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven, and God is living out His life in you. 11  This new birth, being born again of the Spirit, is the one and only procedure that can get us out of the human kingdom and into God's kingdom. 12  We are regenerated into God's kingdom through Christ when we are born again. 13

To redeem or save humans, the Triune God had to leave His divine kingdom, the Kingdom of God. 14  He had to enter the human kingdom, and to enter the human kingdom He had to have the life of the human kingdom. 15  He had to be born a man. He became a man, a human with a human body, a human life, a human spirit, a human soul, and a human mind. 16  The Spirit of the Triune God was in Him also. 17  He had a human spirit and the life of God in Him by the Spirit, just as every human does when they become regenerated. When we humans are regenerated, we still have our human body, we still have our human spirit, we still have a human soul, and we still have a human mind. 18  We remain in the human kingdom, but we are no longer children of the human kingdom. 19  This is because the life of God's kingdom is in us by our being born again of God's Spirit. By this, we have God's life, the life of God's kingdom. Jesus said, "The Kingdom of God is within you," referring to all who are born again of the Spirit (Luke 17:21).

In order to destroy the works of Satan and save mankind, God visited us in a man named Jesus. 20  Jesus, by the life of God in Him, lived a perfect, sinless human life 21  so that He could be the spotless Lamb of God, the sacrifice from God, and take away our former sins by shedding His perfect, sinless human blood for us. 22  When God puts His life or Spirit in us, He expects us to also live a sinless, spotless human life, just as Jesus did, because we have the same Spirit of God in us as Jesus did. Again, the Bible says that we too are able to live a sinless, spotless human life by the same Spirit which enabled Christ to live a sinless, spotless human life. 23  Christ was conceived in His mother's womb by the Holy Spirit, but all other humans were not. 24  We are only able to be sinless and spotless after we receive the Spirit of Christ with His Father by the Spirit into our dead human spirits. 25  Our dead spirits in the dead human kingdom are brought to the immortal Kingdom of Heaven life through the entry of the Triune God with the life and power of God's life into our spirits, which makes it easy not to sin again. In John 5:14, Jesus told a new convert to "sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee [him]," because He knew the man had been given the power to never sin again. In John 8:11, He repeats the same warning to a woman who He had forgiven for her former sins. He knew she had been given the power to never sin again. God never commands us to do anything that we cannot do. 26  After regeneration, we are all able to go and sin no more. "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect" (Matt. 5:48). "Be ye holy; for I am holy" (I Pet. 1:16). 27  After regeneration, we have all been given the power of God to be perfect and holy. 28  Before we are regenerated, we are not able to go and sin no more. 29  Only after regeneration are we more than able to go and sin no more.

At regeneration, Christ's blood wipes away every sin, including the Adamic sin, which is the curse we were born with. 30  According to God's Word, this curse is the penalty of God's law. 31  It causes every human to die and eternally suffer the torments of Hell. 32  This curse, this condemnation, is removed when we become born of God and continue with Him in the daily renewal of His Spirit in us. 33  Every negative thing from the old world, everything from the old human kingdom which was contrary to God, and everything from Genesis to Christ's death in the gospels was smashed to pieces, forever taken away, wiped out in Christ's death and resurrection for all those who first become regenerated, then continue in the regenerated life by the life of God's kingdom being renewed in us daily by the Spirit of God, which is Christ. 34  "God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth" (John 4:24).

Christ in His body reconciled us unto God "having slain the enmity [the devil] thereby" (Eph. 2:16) through the death of His body becoming the deaths of both Satan and ourselves. The devil and our sinful selves were slain there and are to remain there after we are saved, regenerated. 35  Because of Satan's death there, he can no longer have the power over us to sin. 36  When we keep the Spirit of God renewed in us daily, the devil is kept nailed to the cross. 37  Christ took the devil and our sins to the cross, slew us and the devil in the death of Himself (His Body), then rose from the grave, leaving the devil, our sins, and every other negative thing in the universe that is contrary to God nailed to His cross. 38  Again, when we forsake our sins and the devil, we too are resurrected in Christ, leaving our sins, the devil, and every other negative thing nailed to the cross where Christ slew everything in us and in the world, including the devil. Then we are resurrected unto life everlasting through His resurrection. 39

It is impossible for those who walk in the deeds of the flesh to partake in Christ's death and resurrection, to have His eternal, heavenly kingdom life, because they don't have the life of God in them, which is necessary for anyone who wants to enter the life of the Kingdom of God. 40  They remain dead in their sins and trespasses, preferring to live according to their sinful ways for a short season in this corrupt kingdom of humanity. 41  They prefer to live according to the present world, which can be seen, rather than receiving, by faith, God's world, which cannot presently be seen and can only be attained by our believing the Word of God, which promises it. 42

Like Eve, who rejected God's Word 43  and believed Satan's words instead, other foolish ones refuse to repent of their sins and die by coming to the cross to enter the death of Christ, which would put to death their old, sinful, human ways and Satan's power over their lives. Christ would blot out their former sins through their having faith in the sin-cleansing power of His blood, which was shed for them so they might be resurrected from death unto life, the life of God. God would then be their new parent. Hence, they would be children of God's Kingdom. This life of God is the life of God's Kingdom in them, making them sons of God by their becoming members of Christ's glorious, resurrected body, which has ascended into Heaven and is presently sitting at the right hand of God. 44  This symbolically speaking, shows that Christ is God's wisdom and power. 45

"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). In other words, Christ, through the death of His flesh, destroyed the serpent or devil who held us captive. 46  We were unable to escape from sinning, Satan, death, and the lake of fire because we were not aware of how to escape from the devil's prison. Our only escape from Satan, death, eternal torment in the lake of fire, and this sinful, human kingdom is to be regenerated into God's kingdom through God's power in Christ entering us through the Holy Spirit. 47

Through the Holy Spirit, Christ opens the locks of Satan's prison, setting us free to go and sin no more one day at a time by renewing ourselves daily with God's Holy Spirit, which mortifies the "I" in us and the "selfwill" in us, which is our "flesh." 48  We "can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth [us]" (Phlp. 4:13). So again, all our former sins, the devil, Adam, and everything contrary to God's ordinances was wiped out by the all-inclusive death of Christ on the cross at Calvary. 49  The Apostle Paul says it this way: "And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened [He gave the life-giving Spirit, life eternal, to you] together with Him, having forgiven you all [former] trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us [against the sins we formerly committed], which was contrary to us [against us], and took it out of the way [wiped it out], nailing it to His cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers [sin, the devil, his fallen angels, death, Hell, and the grave], He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it [by His death, resurrection, transformation, and ascension back to Heaven, where the Triune God's Life that was in Him originated]" (Col. 2:13-15). His transformed human body is there also. 50  Also, we who are born again of the Spirit--regenerated-- "are more than conquerors" in Christ's all-inclusive death and resurrection (Rom. 8:37).

All glory is given to God when the people of the world observe the continuation of the Triune God's incarnation living and working in those of us who are regenerated by God's life and power living and working in us. 51  The world will no longer see any evidence of our walking according to the ways of the human kingdom, that is, according to "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" (I John 2:16). All these things that were in us when we were alive to sin are now nailed to Christ's cross with Him, where we who are now saved died to the ways and things of the human kingdom and--praise the Lord--are now resurrected into Christ's all-inclusive, powerful, sinless, Kingdom of Heaven new life. 52  Because God's life, which is eternal, was abiding in Christ's human body, God was able to raise Him from the dead. "If the [same] Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell[s] in [us], He that raised up Christ from the dead [which is God the Father] shall also quicken [give God's immortal life to our] mortal bodies by His Spirit [His Kingdom of Heaven life] that dwelleth in [us by regeneration]" (Rom. 8:11). "Now if any man have not the Spirit of [God living in him], he is none of His" (Rom. 8:9).

After we have reckoned ourselves to be dead in Christ's all-inclusive death, and after experiencing His all-inclusive resurrection unto immortality for us, as well as His all-inclusive ascension into Heaven for us with Him, Christ with the Father by the Spirit can enter us, "crying, Abba, Father" (Gal. 4:6). Then are we sons of God in Christ, for we are no longer twain but one with Him as one new man. 53  Christ is the head of us, and we are His body, with the very same power of God living in us that lived in Him, the human Christ, our Redeemer and Savior whose name is Jesus, the Son of man, the only begotten Son of God the Father. 54  This is the continuation of God's incarnation in this world in we who are the functioning members of Christ's corporate Body. This is not dead religion. This is being born again in God's life, which is God's Spirit in us, the life of God's kingdom in us. 55  Jesus was not only lifted up to redeem us, He was lifted up to give us God's life, which is eternal. 56  We shall, on the last day, be raised from the dead if we, by His Spirit, continue in His resurrected Kingdom of God life until the end. 57

To have eternal life is to have God with His life pouring like a stream or a river into us. 58  Our life is the Almighty God Himself, Christ with His Father by the Spirit pouring into us. 59  If we are regenerated, God is pouring Himself into us and through us daily by His incarnation in us and by our resurrection in Him. 60  The Triune God's continuing incarnation in us brings about our redemption, and His resurrection in us brings about our new life with God's power in us. This is our life in Him, which is to be used by Him so that others might be saved. 61

Incarnation caused God to become a man as well as God. 62  Christ was in the Kingdom of God. 63  Again, in order to have the life of the human kingdom, He had to be born into it. 64  This is the only reason God used Mary. She was an incubator for bringing Him into this human kingdom as a human. 65  He had a human soul, a human spirit, and a human body. 66  Still, because of the Spirit of the Triune God in Him, He said He was "not of this world" (John 8:23). When we who are of the human kingdom become born of water and of the Spirit, we too become sons of God and have the life of God's Kingdom in us. 67  This doesn't mean that we should pray to our mothers simply because they gave birth to us in this human kingdom when later we became regenerated with the life of God in us, any more than we should pray to the mother of Jesus simply because she bore a human into the human kingdom who had the Triune God in Him. It was not by her doing but by God's doing. 68

One thing we know for sure is that Jesus never prayed to His mother and never instructed anyone else to do such a stupid thing. 69  People should read the Bible, so they can tell how utterly anti-Christ it is for anyone to pray to anyone or anything other than God. 70  There are many illustrations in the Bible regarding this subject. One example is when the devil told Jesus that he would give Him the entire world if He would only fall down and worship him, that is, if He would only pray to the devil and petition him for the world (as if the devil owned it, which he doesn't). 71  God created the world and owns it. 72  The world was ill-gotten by the devil through his lying. 73  Christ is repossessing the world by His truth. 74  In the original Hellenic Greek text, Jesus rebuked the devil by saying, "Be gone, and keep on going, Satan, for it has been written and at present is on record, THE LORD YOUR GOD YOU SHALL WORSHIP [PRAY TO], AND TO HIM ONLY YOU SHALL RENDER SACRED SERVICE" (Matt. 4:10). The King James Version says, "Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written,THOU SHALT WORSHIP [PRAY TO, PETITION] the Lord thy God, and HIM ONLY shalt thou serve."

Jesus told the devil to worship/pray to GOD ONLY. We can see by this that Christ eliminates praying to or worshipping the mother of Jesus, all saints, and anybody or anything else except God. When I say anyone or anything, I mean angels, saints, mothers, dads, governments, politicians, sports figures, singers, motion picture stars, husbands, wives, children, relatives, animals, birds, fish, insects, music, art works of any kind, religions, computers, the world, lust, flesh, or pride in anything of the world or in Heaven. 75  We must worship/pray to GOD ONLY. Galatians chapter one states twice, in verses eight and nine, that anyone preaching "any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." If you want to be cursed, just keep praying to the mother of Jesus, the saints, and all the other aforementioned items. However, if your desire is to be blessed by God rather than cursed, then pray to GOD ONLY. There are many other scriptures in the Bible saying we must pray to GOD ONLY. 76

When the disciples of Jesus asked Him how to pray, He stated, "OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN [not Mary which art in Heaven or the saints which art in Heaven. He didn't say hallowed be their names, but] Hallowed be [God's] name." [He didn't say their kingdoms come or their wills be done, but "THY KINGDOM COME. THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN" (Matt. 6:9-10). Again, Christ's instructions on how we are to pray eliminates anyone and everyone other than GOD. Again, if you want to be cursed by God, then simply pray to whom you wish other than Him. But if you want to be blessed, pray ONLY TO GOD. 77

We are presently in the human kingdom, the world, but we are no longer of it. 78  Since our regeneration, we are of the Kingdom of Heaven. 79  Jesus confirmed this fact when He was praying TO HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN on behalf of His disciples. He said to His Father: "I have given them Thy Word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world" (John 17:14-16).

Again, Christ, both as "the Son of man" and "the Son of God," brought about the salvation of our souls and the redemption of our bodies 80  by His being lifted up on the cross as the Lamb of God for our sins. 81  By our Lord's being lifted up on the cross as the serpent, He was able to deal with the devil in regard to the devil's destruction, the devil's eternal death, and the devil's former hold on those who are now God's children. 82  As the serpent, Christ brought about the death of both sin and Satan in His sinless self for us. 83  Again, when we die to sin, Satan, and self at the cross, the selfish, sinful, satanic way we were living will die and be buried there with Christ. 84  All this supernatural power, which was given to us so we could die out to every negative thing in ourselves and in the corrupt human kingdom, was accomplished for us by Christ at the cross two thousand years ago. When we realize that all His accomplishments were on our behalf, that is, that He rescued us out of the human kingdom into His divine kingdom so that we might escape the eternal lake of fire with all of its unimaginable torments 85  and gain His eternal, blissful life in Heaven, 86  we will also understand why regenerated people constantly praise our Lord Jesus Christ, His Father, and the Holy Spirit, who are three in one, for doing this for us. 87  We who are saved are now of the heavenly kingdom. Christ with His Father is working in us and through us to help those who are not yet saved in this human kingdom while we are here. Through Christ's resurrection we have gained every positive thing that is in Christ for us. His resurrection is also our resurrection because we are no longer living to sin. By Christ becoming our substitute, taking our place on the cross to annihilate our former sins and former lives in Himself, we begin to realize that having Christ's death is the only way to gain Christ's resurrected eternal life for ourselves. 88  This is His way, and this is the only way out of the human kingdom into the heavenly kingdom. 89  This is the only way provided by God for us to escape the eternal torments in the lake of fire. Jesus said we are to lose our lives so that we may gain our eternal life in Him.

Only the "dead shall be raised incorruptible" (I Cor. 15:52). 90  He said it this way: "Whosoever will save his life [that is, continue to do their own will and live their own life rather than do God's will and let God live His life in them in this human kingdom] shall lose it [lose eternal life]: and whosoever will lose his life for My sake [whoever in this human kingdom will do God's will and live God's life in the human kingdom] shall find it [shall gain their eternal life in God's heavenly kingdom]" (Matt. 16:25). Those who surrender their lives to the death of Christ shall, in Christ's resurrection, gain the life of Christ eternally in Heaven.

We must come to Him while we are in the human kingdom for the purpose of doing His will. Only then can we have eternal life and be members of His kingdom, "fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God [the heavenly kingdom]" (Eph. 2:19). 91

CHRIST DEMANDS OUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION

Our next step in Christ is transformation. After we are regenerated, we need to be transformed and continue daily in God's transformation process. 92  We are transformed by taking Christ into us at all times. We must eat, drink, and breathe Christ daily so that we might continuously abide in Him who is our life. 93  Jesus demands this constant attention from us for our sakes so that we might have eternal life till the end. 94

If we are not totally focused on Him, we will not have any place with Him in Heaven. 95  Jesus illustrates this in John chapter six, verses fifty-three through fifty-four. If we are not giving our full attention to Him, then the millions of voices, distractions, and noises of the world will be all that we hear. 96  We will be unable to hear His vital promptings, which are the very things that cause the world to see His light in us, which is the incarnation of the Word of God in us in this present world. 97  Without our total focus on the Lord so that we may do all His promptings, there would be no evidence of His continuing presence in the world. We must totally depend on Him. 98  He also depends on us. 99  The Holy Spirit needs regenerated human bodies to live in and work in. 100  We cannot hear Him or do that which He prompts us to do if we're not constantly attentive to His voice.

John chapter four, verses thirteen through fourteen, tell us how to drink of Christ. John chapter six, verses fifty-three through fifty-four, tell us how to eat of Christ. John chapter fourteen, verses fifteen through sixteen and twenty-three, and John chapter fifteen, verses four through five and seven tell us how to abide in Him, and John chapter twenty, verse twenty-two tells us how to breathe Him in. When we are breathing in the life-giving Spirit, which is Christ, on a daily basis we are refreshed or rejuvenated daily, which mortifies our self-will. 101  The Lord, the Word, is our daily rejuvenation or refreshment. 102  We must be rejuvenated by Christ every minute of every day. When we eat, drink, and breathe Christ, the Word, we not only can abide in Him, we are transformed from babes in Christ to the fullness of Christ. 103

If it is your will to come to God in Christ and be born again so that God can become your new parent and you can be His child, if you want to be transformed by the daily growth of God's power within you, as well as His power over sin, the devil, the world, and your flesh, then completely surrender your human life to Christ now. If you will, you can immediately receive His divine, immortal life now. God tells us, "Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (II Cor. 6:2). We never know if we'll live another day, another hour, or even another minute. 104  Ask Christ with His Father by the Spirit to make you His beloved child now 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.
