IS GOD ARROGANT?
by Tony Alamo
Is it arrogant for GOD to say HE created the Heaven and the earth, or is it arrogant for the people today to say that HE didn’t, that GOD is not the CREATOR, that GOD is a LIAR and today’s people are speaking the truth?1
“Let GOD be TRUE, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). Former President Clinton is a good example of a liar, and the Supreme Court as well. They ruled that it’s okay to lie.2 The FBI has and will send church members to brainwashing school (this is the Cult Awareness Network, now called Wellspring since the Scientology Church closed CAN for their criminal activities). The FBI paid five thousand dollars apiece to those who testified falsely against me, to lie in court. They bribed them, and they threatened to send them and their parents away to prison if they wouldn’t “cooperate,” lie with them against me and my church. This is according to Desiree Kolbek, their star witness.
The FBI manipulated the local media and the judges on several of my cases. They also threatened my lawyer, Jeffrey Dickstein. They told him to lose my IRS case, or they would indict him on seventeen counts of failure to file income tax. They said he would go to prison for seventeen years for failing to file his income taxes. They threatened all the witnesses they had against me, and every one of them knew that they were lying. Chris Belcher, the prosecutor, hid evidence which would have cleared me. All of them lied. Let every man be called a liar, but let GOD be called the truth. I think that today, people know that the FBI and other federal agents are liars and are corrupt. People believe me and do not believe them.
When five threatened, bribed, and brainwashed women say you did something wrong to them, what can you say? No matter what you say, it won’t do any good, especially when the media is brainwashing the public with their printed articles. When GOD says HE created the Heaven and the earth, it isn’t arrogance but the TRUTH. Don’t believe the government scientists or the other atheists—BELIEVE GOD!
Thousands, even millions of people are very troubled because of the evil things happening on earth today. GOD impregnated a human woman, a virgin, by the HOLY SPIRIT.3 Her name was Mary. Her son was a human, not only GOD, but a GOD-MAN. He was GOD inside, and on the outside, he was a genuine human man. GOD in HIM, by the HOLY SPIRIT, was with HIM in the beginning, and it was HIM who created all things, Heaven, earth, and everything else.4
When HE was with us on earth, HIS GOD SPIRIT spoke with HIS human mouth to give us encouragement, saying, “Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in GOD, believe also in ME. [HE went on to say he wasn’t the only one whom GOD would live in.] In MY FATHER’S house are many mansions [GOD will use you as one of HIS many mansions, and HE will live in you, if you will invite HIM in! Jesus said I am in the FATHER by the SPIRIT, and GOD is in me, and WE, both of us, will live in you.]: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go [to the FATHER to become a life-giving SPIRIT] to prepare a place for you. [HE as the COMFORTER, the Life-giving SPIRIT, which is also GOD, shall return to live in you as one of GOD’S many mansions. This is what HE means by going away to prepare a place for you.] And if I go and prepare a place for you [I prepare MYSELF to be the HOLY SPIRIT, the COMFORTER, enabling ME with the FATHER to LIVE IN YOU], I will come again, and receive you unto MYSELF [into GOD’S family]; that where I am, there ye may be also [in the FATHER and in ME]. And where I go you know, and the way you know.
“Thomas saith unto HIM, LORD, we know not where YOU go; and how can we know the way? [Are these next words of JESUS arrogance, or the CREATOR’S guidance?] JESUS saith unto him, I AM THE WAY [the ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN], THE TRUTH [the ONLY TRUTH], AND THE LIFE [the ONLY GIVER OF eternal LIFE anywhere; no one else has life, no one else can save you, all other religions are false and of the devil]: no man cometh unto the FATHER, but by ME [no man can enter Heaven, but by ME].
“If you had known ME, you should have known MY FATHER also: and from henceforth you know HIM, and have seen HIM.
“Philip saith unto HIM, LORD, show us the FATHER, and it sufficeth us. JESUS saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known ME, Philip? he that has seen ME has seen the FATHER; and how say you then, Show us the FATHER? Believest thou not that I am in the FATHER, and the FATHER in ME? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of MYSELF: but the FATHER that dwelleth in ME, HE doeth the works. Believe ME that I am in the FATHER, and the FATHER in ME: or else believe ME for the very works’ sake.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on ME, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto MY FATHER. And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it. If ye love ME, keep MY commandments. And I will pray the FATHER, and HE shall give you another COMFORTER, that HE may abide with you for ever” (John 14:1-16).
Is JESUS being arrogant, or is HE really GOD, our CREATOR and our guide? HE is our CREATOR and guide.5 Is it arrogant for the LORD to say, “The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited” (Isaiah 24:20-22).
Is JESUS arrogant for saying in Revelation 1:8, “I am ALPHA and OMEGA [the A to Z in Greek], the beginning and the ending [of all things], saith the LORD, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the ALMIGHTY?” Is HE ALL MIGHTY, or is HE just joking? Maybe you are the arrogant one. JESUS is not arrogant. HE is the CREATOR and GUIDE for us into Heaven.6
JESUS is the WORD of GOD which created everything, “Who is the image of the invisible GOD, the firstborn [of all saved creatures] of every creature” (Colossians 1:15). Do you think JESUS is arrogant like you humans because HE, as GOD, delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the Kingdom of HIS dear SON? NO, HE is NOT arrogant. HE is not a man that HE should be arrogant. HE is GOD-MAN, “In whom we have redemption through HIS blood, even the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:14). But “go, and sin no more” (John 5:14, 8:11).
HE is GOD. HE doesn’t have to dread you at Judgment, but you have to dread Him if you’re not living the way HE commands.7 Do you think CHRIST is arrogant just because “by HIM were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by HIM, and for HIM: And HE is before all things, and by HIM all things consist. And HE is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things HE might have the preeminence.
“For it pleased the FATHER that in HIM should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of HIS cross, by HIM to reconcile all things unto HIMSELF; by HIM, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in Heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath HE reconciled In the body of HIS flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in HIS sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the Gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister” (Colossians 1:16-23).
Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a SON is given: and the government shall be upon HIS shoulder: and HIS name shall be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, The MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.”
Many people today are without CHRIST and the power of GOD in them because they don’t have CHRIST. CHRIST JESUS, by the power of GOD in HIM, was able to restrain HIMSELF. HE said HIS FATHER would send HIM more than twelve legions of angels to destroy the persecutors, but if He had allowed this, how should the Scriptures be fulfilled? (Matthew 26:53-54). HE was saying HE had to die in order for us to live.8
If everyone accepted JESUS as their SAVIOR and their power, no one would be murdering their own children (or anyone else), no one would be falsely accusing anyone; and everyone, by the power of GOD in them, would “go, and sin no more.” The restraint CHRIST had—showed that HE was truly GOD-MAN. Let HIM enter you now by saying this 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
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 your cross daily and follow JESUS for the purpose of mortifying your flesh, 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 with Christ on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for GOD in CHRIST on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the WORD of GOD, submit yourselves one to another, 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 bless and reward you abundantly.
Yours in the wonderful name of JESUS,
Pastor Tony Alamo
