FASTING

by Tony Alamo

The government made it clear in a courtroom in Texarkana that they will have a government church, the kind our forefathers fled from in Europe (from England, but its headquarters are in Rome1). The only church they will allow to operate in the United States and in the rest of the world is a church that is not of GOD, but is an antichrist cult which persecutes real Christians, maligns GOD, HIS WORD, HIS commandments, and all of HIS doctrines, precepts, statutes, and testimonies.2

The WORD of GOD commands us to discipline our children if they are unruly, if we love them.3 Because we believe and keep this commandment, the government fined me sixty-six million dollars for my teaching the people in the world and in my church to believe the LORD. The Constitution condemns the government telling anyone or prohibiting anyone from believing GOD and doing what HE commands! Even the political unsaved people are screaming their heads off at the unconstitutionality of today’s antichrist government.

The Bible also commands us to fast.4 I teach the WORD of GOD, that we are to fast if we want a quick answer from GOD, and the government’s media maligned us because of my teaching this truth. I have never compelled anyone to fast, but the government and media lied, saying I compel children to fast. THIS IS A BIG LIE!

I definitely preach that childhood ends at puberty, just as it says in the Bible and in Webster’s Dictionary, and many other places.5 However, the Roman European government keeps calling men and women “children,” and this is a LIE! You better believe GOD’S WORD, or you will not go to Heaven, but will spend eternity in Hell and in the Lake of Fire.6
Our United States Constitution states there shall be no law infringing on religious rights. Again, “Congress shall MAKE NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF” (this is the LAW in the Bill of Rights [Amendment I]).

Today’s judges do not keep the law. However, my church and I have been persecuted for years by the Roman European government. This shows how corrupt and demonic the United States government has become, primarily because they have united themselves to the Roman U.N. European world government, which is absolutely run by the devil, the spirit of Satan, which primarily emanates from Rome, Italy, the Vatican.7 If anyone has ever pinned the tail on the donkey, it is the Bible and me! Believe GOD and me or be the enemy of GOD!
I will devote the rest of this message to what GOD says regarding fasting, what the benefits of fasting are, so you will be able to understand these truths.

First of all, GOD is not the GOD of false religions who say people should murder all sinners, as radical Muslims do. Radical Muslims say they are to “kill (murder) little Satan,” which they say is Israel, and “kill (murder) big Satan,” which they say is the people of the United States. This statement is as dangerous as the statement that the Roman U.N. European government made against the WORD of GOD in the kangaroo courtroom where I was tried. JESUS came to save sinners, not blow them up.8 HE said in Matthew 9:13, “I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” So JESUS, who is also GOD in the flesh, didn’t come to murder the people of Israel or the United States, or anyone. HE came to call them unto repentance (Luke 5:32).

The people of the world are in extreme danger and darkness, but as for GOD, “In HIM was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not [didn’t understand it]. There was a man sent from GOD, whose name was John [John the Baptist]” (John 1:4-6). In Matthew 9:14-15, “Then came to HIM [JESUS] the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but THY disciples fast not? And JESUS said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.”

The physical body of JESUS ascended into Heaven. Although HE with HIS FATHER by the SPIRIT is living within us, the actual physical body of JESUS is gone, with the exception of us who are now HIS body in the world.9 In order for us to remain HIS body here on earth, we have to fast often to remain in HIS SPIRIT (Luke 5:35). Otherwise, our flesh, the spirit of Satan, will take over, and we will no longer be the body of CHRIST.10

We must shun the world!11 The WORD of GOD commands us to be constant in the keeping of HIS commandments. According to Webster’s Dictionary, the meaning of “constant” is “not changing, faithful, stable, continual, persistent, and anything that does not change or vary.”

First Chronicles 28:7-9 states GOD told King David, “Moreover I will establish [your son Solomon’s] kingdom for ever, IF he be CONSTANT to do MY commandments and MY judgments, as at this day. Now therefore, in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the LORD, and in the audience of our GOD, keep and seek for ALL the commandments of the LORD your GOD: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever. And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the GOD of thy father, and serve HIM with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth ALL hearts, and understandeth ALL the imaginations of the thoughts: IF thou seek HIM, HE will be found of thee; but IF thou forsake HIM, HE will cast thee off for ever.”

Seeking the LORD is not the work of one day, but is to be constant every day (Luke 9:23). Again, according to Webster’s Dictionary, the meaning of “constant” is “not changing, faithful, stable, continual, persistent, and anything that does not change or vary.”

The Benefits from GOD
for Fasting

Fasting rests the digestive system and wakes up GOD’S SPIRIT in the person who will fast. The digestive system begins with the tongue. The tongue is like the head of a coiled serpent (which the digestive system looks like), a world of sin. “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of Hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison” (James 3:6-8). The tongue is controlled by the HOLY SPIRIT.

Isaiah chapter 58 states, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show MY people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek ME daily, and delight to know MY ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their GOD: they ask of ME the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to GOD. Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and THOU seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and THOU takest no knowledge?

“Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?

“Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and HE shall say, Here I am.

“If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach [the spiritual meaning of breach is broken promises], The restorer of paths to dwell in.

“If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on MY holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour HIM, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it” (Isaiah chapter 58).

JESUS said in Matthew 6:16, “Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”

James 4:2-3 states, “Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss [the wrong way], that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”

If a church be of GOD, they never use fasting as discipline. Fasting is strictly voluntary, and children are never asked to fast, as the government and media lies to the people that I do. Again, fasting is strictly voluntary. If you are seeking GOD amiss (the wrong way), then simply follow the instructions of Isaiah chapter 58. Repent of your sins now by saying this prayer to GOD. Then serve GOD every day with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength till the day you die.

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 former 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

After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13

CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT.14 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
