OUR LORD'S FAVORITE THING

by Tony Alamo

Today it is obvious that the devil has declared war both on God and on the saints of God.1 "And they [the whole world] worshipped the dragon [the devil] which gave power unto the beast [the one-world system]: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast [saying who is like the one-world system]? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him [the one-world system] a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies [the world media]...And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle [the bodies of Christians in whom God’s life dwells], and them that dwell in Heaven. And it was given unto him [the devil’s world system and media] to make war with the saints, and to overcome them [defeat them]." 2

These saints who are overcome or defeated by the one-world system and its mouth, the media, are the same defeated ones spoken of in Second Thessalonians 2:3. They are the great falling away from the church, the fallen away ones who were once a part of the body of Christ. The falling away of saints is one of the last signs before Christ’s second advent.3 The devil overcomes these saints, who are like unto the angels in Heaven that fell away from their first estate simply because they believed in Satan’s weakness rather than God’s power.4 They, the fallen away Christians, fear Satan’s one-world system, what the system would do to them for speaking the truth, and what the system’s media would say about them, fearing the loss of their reputations and standing in the community rather than fearing God and fearing what will happen to them on the day of judgment.5

These saints who have fallen away and are now condemned are clearly examples of the fallacy of the doctrine "eternal security."6 These defeated, fallen away, condemned saints are much different from those who are never overcome, simply because the latter never turn away from Jesus.7 The overcomers are Christ’s body in whom He lives and works His works in today’s world.8 Nothing can defeat Christ, who is the head of His body.9 Nor can His body, the victorious saints, be defeated.10 The enemy may kill our bodies, but our souls are never defeated. They will live forever in Heaven.11 This is because they who are His body are attached to Him who lives in Heaven by His Spirit, His life, the life of God living in them, which is Christ with the Father, the ruler of Heaven and earth.12 They fear God, the Creator of all things, and nothing else.13 They are righteous, and "the righteous are bold as a lion."14 The fallen away Christians are those whom God abhors.15 They were left by Him as prey for those false ministers, the false prophets, who hunt for souls with their corrupt doctrines "because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."16 This is the true nature of God. Have faith. Believe God’s Word. Otherwise, you will be like unto the condemned ones not having faith enough to believe in God’s Word as it was written. Christ is the "headstone" and chief cornerstone of His entire body, the church, and is one with all those who are in the body of Christ.17

In Revelation 17:14, Satan and his servants "shall make war with the Lamb [Christ], and the Lamb [Christ] shall overcome them [defeat them]." This passage speaks of the victorious Lamb of God in Heaven who is the head of His victorious body on earth, all members of His church. They are the house in which He dwells, and His Spirit is constantly poured into them from Heaven.18 They never fall away from Him because He, the Seed, Word, remains in them.19 They "cannot sin, because [they are] born of God."20 They never forsake the Lord, and they never fall. Christ and His true servants are not overcome. This is because "He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him [every member that does not fall away from Christ] are called, and chosen, and faithful."21 They treasure His life-giving presence within them, which makes them one with Him, and they are not ashamed of His Word or of the work He has laid out for them.22 These are the earthen vessels with that treasure of Christ, God’s life, in them spoken of in Second Corinthians 4:7. They obey His every Word, and they "Love not [any part of Satan, sin, or] the world."23 The weapons they defeat Satan with in this war "are not carnal [but are spiritual, ‘the Word of God’24 ]."25 No true Christian has ever started or taken part in any carnal war where any human blood was shed, although religions practicing politics have done this in the name of Christianity.

Many millions have fallen away from Christ because they believe in various fallacies, such as the satanically inspired false doctrine that it is wrong to be angry against Satan, sin, and the world system.26 They are angered because God’s Word crosses their will and their lusts. These false prophets, filled with their own wills and lusts, state that anger against Satan, sin, and corruption is wrong. This false doctrine in particular has made the world, as well as the majority of unskilled Christians, passive about the Word of God as well as lawless. They are not zealous in preaching the truth of the anger, hatred, and wrath of God against sin, Satan, and the corruption and lawlessness in today’s world.27 To make matters worse for them and those who believe them, they express only anger, hatred, and wrath against God, God’s Word, and those who preach and teach God’s Word.

Christ commanded everyone to be angry against sin, Satan, and the corruption in the world.28 Have faith in the words of Jesus, for only by faith in Jesus’s Words are you saved.29 By doubt you are damned.30 Who could read the Word of God and not learn to be angry at Satan, sin, and the corruption in the world? And who could live in this world and not be angry with Satan, sin, and the evils herein? "Ye that love the Lord, hate evil."31 Have faith in these scriptures. They are the Word of God. It is written of Jesus, " Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."32 Remember, by faith in God’s Word you are saved and by doubt you are damned.33

Ecclesiastes 7:9 states, "Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools."34 This scripture is seemingly contradictory to other scriptures which command Christians to be angry at sin, Satan, and the corruption in the world (scriptures such as "be ye angry, and sin not."35 ) "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."36 Now in order to understand the scripture "anger resteth in the bosom of fools," we must first discern what the word fool means by laying the easy to understand scriptures next to the ones that are harder to understand. We must also remember that the Word of God is the only true mirror for beholding God.37 It alone presents Him as Himself with all His likes, His dislikes, and His attributes. Our faith in God’s Word does not give credit to reports of God from any source other than God’s own mouth. This is what will quench every temptation and every heresy.38 The Bible, our only mirror to understand God’s Word today, tells us, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."39 Therefore, the anger in the bosom of one who says there is no God, a fool, would be the anger a fool shows towards God’s reproof, God’s warning, God’s Word, and those who preach and teach God’s Word. The scripture, "Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools"40 means we are not to be angry against God, His Word, or those who bear His Word. If we are, then we are fools, condemned fools.

The overcomers with the Lamb, who have overcome the devil, his false doctrine, death, Hell, and the grave by Christ’s sound doctrine are, of course, as angry as Christ is with Satan, sin, and corruption.41 Otherwise they could not be the Lamb’s body. The Lamb would not live in vessels who do not agree with His Spirit or His Word.42 His hatred against sin, Satan, and corruption is the same in His heavenly ministry as it was in His earthly ministry. His earthly ministry continues to this day in His undefeated saints.43 He gave many parables in His Word, our true mirror for beholding God, showing how His godly anger, hatred, and wrath will be on the day of judgment towards all those who love these things, those who are angry with God and His servants.44

Jesus, displaying His anger, hatred, and wrath to the Pharisees said to them, "Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of Hell?"45 "Hypocrites,"46 "blind guides,"47 "fools and blind."48 "Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world."49 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do."50

One of the parables Christ gives regarding His anger and wrath to the wicked on the day of judgment describes those who gave no food or drink to His disciples on earth, those who did not visit them when they were in prisons and in sick rooms. Jesus stated, "Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me."51 He promises He will, with anger and hatred, show His eternal wrath, saying, "Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels."52

In another parable, Jesus tells of a man [Himself] who gave His goods to His servants. "Unto one He gave five talents, to another two, and to another one."53 One of them hid his talent (his commission to do the works of Christ) in the ground and refused to work.54 He did not reprove, rebuke, or become angry at sin while he was here on earth. 55 He lost his talent. Christ gave his talent to the righteous man, the one who showed his godly hatred and anger at Satan, at sin, at corruption, and at the world.56 The Lord in His hatred, anger, and wrath stated to His servants, "Cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 57

In another parable, Jesus tells of a man trying to con his way into the marriage supper of the Lamb without being righteous according to God’s righteousness.58 This person did not allow Christ to live in him and minister in him.59 This angered Christ. He hated this man. To show His anger and eternal wrath to us and to the angels, Christ the Master commanded His servants to "bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."60 Again, for emphasis, He shows here in Bible scripture His righteous divine anger, hatred, and wrath towards those who try to enter Heaven by any way other than Himself, "THE DOOR."61 Christ is the only way into the kingdom of God.62 He said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."63 This statement of Christ’s infuriates every false religion on earth. They are angry at the wrong thing, and they too shall pay for it at judgment. 64

There is much more evidence of the anger, hatred, and wrath of Christ towards Satan, his army of imps, and the sinners who refuse to repent.65 In one case alone He cast thousands of demons from a man into a herd of swine, which "ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea."66 He cast demons out of literally thousands of people and was not at all concerned with the demons crying: "What have we to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of God? art Thou come hither to torment us before the time?"67

There are so many satanic ministers today. "For Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."68 They, of course, will not teach the true nature and importance of believing in Christ’s every Word by telling the world it is Christ who will eternally torment Satan, the demons, and all those who are led by Satan, including themselves, for their rejection of Him as well as their disobedience to Him.69 They say that Christ is only love. They mean love in a sinful way. Scriptural love is the keeping of God’s commandments, not hugging, kissing, and condoning Satan, sin, and corruption.70 This is the very opposite of Christ’s message of love. Even the demons know that. How can these ministers call themselves Christians when the demons are more scriptural than they are? How can anyone believe these ministers are Christians?

On another occasion where demons cried out, "Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with Thee, Thou Jesus of Nazareth? art Thou come to destroy us?...Jesus rebuked them, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him."71 This shows that our righteous Lord was angry at the demons and hated them. This demon knew that Christ would eternally destroy them all in Hell. He admitted it. Pseudo-Christians deny it. They are denying Christ, the Word. Listen to the hateful names that our God, the living Christ, calls both sin and those who fall back into sin after they have been saved. He calls them vomit-lapping dogs,72 pigs that wallow in the mire,73 witches,74 the venom of serpents doomed to Hell,75 the stench of rotten sepulchres,76 and dung hills.77 He smites those who sin with the deadliest of diseases,78 sores,79 gangrenes, leprosies, and plagues.80

Those of us who have the truth must preach both God’s salvation and true nature of Christ so that all people are warned of both His angry, hateful wrath and His terror.81 Christ our Lord and God is a killer as well as the Creator of life. 82 He states, "I, even I, am He, and there is no god with Me: I kill, and I make alive."83 Receive that truth and live. We are saved "by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."84

Although God loves the human soul, He hates the satanic, corrupt, and sinful things we choose to say and do, such as our attempts to change His true character and project it to the world as truth.85 Those who make His Word seem to be other than what it is, shall cause Hell to split wide open when God slings their vile souls into it. 86 It is written, "The breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it."87 How foolish to even attempt to change God’s justice. In Revelation 2:6 He stated that His servants hated "the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which [He said] I also HATE."88 God’s Word describes sin as the transgression of His law, throughout the entire Bible.89 We are saved by our faith that is in the Words He spoke.90 He spoke more of His hatred for sin and the reality of Hell than anyone else in the Bible.91 If you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, you will believe His Words.92

His well-known scriptural, godly, divine, righteous anger against the love of money, which the Word states is the root of all evil,93 was shown when He beat the money changers out of the temple and overthrew their tables. Here He showed His anger towards those that do not reverence God’s temple but rather defile it, making it a place of commerce.94

As the end of time grows close, Christ’s anger becomes hotter against sin, Satan, and the world. He will show it in a most fearful way "when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth."95 This will cause the entire world to move off of its axis in a giant worldquake.96 "And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found."97 He also promises a severe hailstorm on earth with fiery, iron hailstones [meteorites] the weight of a talent, which is about one hundred pounds per stone.98 He promises to kill up to one third of the world’s population at one time because of their unrepentant attitude both towards His Word and towards sin.99 He will send them horrible plagues which will torture them.100 Does this sound like Christ loves Satan, unrepentant sinners, or our lawless society?

The Apostle Paul instructed his churches to put those who doubtfully dispute God’s Word out of the church.101 He commands us to "reprove, rebuke...do the work of an evangelist."102 Faith conceives its notions of God by the Word. It resolves every case of conscience and deciphers everything God writes by the Word. Satan has been able to convince almost the entire world to have evil thoughts of God because most people have no good sense of God’s administration of the world. There are many today who are judging God’s idea of justice because of statements from outrageous sinners who have not yet been overthrown with the speedy judgment they deserve by those who are skilled in the Word.

In the thirteenth chapter of the book of Romans, Paul by the Spirit of God, tells us of the speedy, righteous, indignant wrath of the true ministers of the gospel towards those who continually do evil and refuse to receive reproof or rebuke. "For rulers [God’s ministers] are not a terror to good works, but to the evil...For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword [the Word] in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute ‘WRATH’ upon him that doeth evil."103

In the Bible, Jesus constantly warns what His anger will permanently do to Satan, Satan’s angels, and all that follow Satan on the day of judgment.104 Have faith in this. It is His Word, our only true mirror for beholding God’s true character. The Lamb of God warns all those who are passive about sin and corruption that they must change their ways, becoming so zealously angry with Satan, sin and the lawless society of the world’s system that they make war with Satan by praying to God to remedy those things which are both in them and in the world surrounding them.105

We must have faith in God to receive the life of God, which is Christ by the Spirit, so He might guide our every move, our every word, and our every errand, as well as our every prayer unto the One who hears and answers. This is Christ by the Spirit accomplishing God’s purpose in Christians. If we do not have this faith, we will spend an eternity in Hell with Satan, whom we will have feared more than we fear God.106 Christ will show the wicked whom they should have feared when they are praying for mountains and rocks to fall on them and hide them "from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB."107 Then will they have faith; however, it will be too late.

The biggest hate movement today is being directed from Satan’s world system against true Christianity, and against faith in Christ. There are only two masters. One is God, and the other is Satan. Jesus tells us, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other."108 Here Christ commands hatred against sin, Satan and all that he is.

The scripture, "Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go"109 would not apply to a Christian leader who is angry at sin, Satan, disobedience in the church, or corruption in the world. As a matter of fact, he is commanded by God to have this hatred.110 This is because God has both commanded him and authorized him to preach, to reprove, to rebuke, to be zealous, and to be angry with sin, with Satan, and with all lawlessness.111

God does not change His definition of sin in the New Testament from that in the Old Testament.112 Have faith in this truth as well. As a matter of fact, He amplifies His hatred for sin in the New Testament.113 Read about all of the other marvelous plagues He shall pour down in His wrath against the unrepentant sinners in this world.114 But we must make no friendship with a man who is angry with the Word of God, with the reproof and rebuke of the Word of God.115 Making friends with a man who is angry with God’s Word and God Himself is the same as loving Satan. You would not only learn his God-hating ways, but you would also learn the ways he has of hating the Word of God and those who preach and teach the Word.116

Have faith in these truths and live.117 If something is sweet, God will not label it bitter. If it is good, God will not call it evil, bitter, or sinful, whether it is in the Old Testament or the New Testament. He will clap a woeful curse upon the house of anyone that does so.118 "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"119 Never think you will find good in anything that God calls sinful. Never think there is anything evil in that which God has made moral law. What He said is moral in the Old Testament is moral in the New as well.120

God’s intention was for man to wield His power, to reign for Him, and to control God’s entire creation for Him.121 Adam fell away from this purpose.122 Now He has poured Himself, His true life, and His true self into those of us who have accepted Him by faith.123

He will be the same in the faithful men and women who allow Him to reign in them as He was in His own human body, the first sinless human body ever to exist on earth.124 Because Christ was sinless in His human body, He will also be sinless in yours if you are truly saved.125 That body, composed of many members, must be just as holy as He is and eternally continues to be.126 Anger at Satan, sin, and the world is a great part of God’s holiness.127 Christ’s body takes power and dominion over sin, Satan, and the lawlessness of the satanic world society. This is accomplished by our allowing Christ in our bodies to show His hatred and anger. This is totally unlike those who preach evil, false doctrines that say we can enter Heaven even if we sin when the Bible plainly states that nothing having spot or blemish [sin] in it shall enter the kingdom of God.128 All people, especially Christians, must have faith in this fact. Otherwise, they will be shocked with their condemnation at judgment.129

Hebrews 11:33 shows how Samuel and the prophets, through faith, subdued kingdoms. This was not meant only for Samuel and the prophets. It is also meant for every member of the body of Christ to accomplish. We are to make use of faith for every one of God’s purposes.130 Subduing kingdoms in the New Testament is the same as in the Old. It is written, "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever."131 This is accomplished by those carrying the shield of faith, the kind of faith which blocks every kind of fiery dart of enticing temptation from Satan.132 This is happening because the Word says it would happen. It will continue to happen because it is true. The Word has always and will always come to pass.133 The kingdom is subdued by people of faith who are one with God in Christ.134

Godly men such as Noah, Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Samuel, Job, and Daniel, those who believed God and did everything He ordered, were never defeated and never overpowered by Satan.135 This was because of their faith. Only those who were faked out by the devil were overpowered, those who let Satan take them with their weak faith out of God’s hand like King David took the spear of Saul while in the trench.136 Not only Saul was lost, but Achan, the majority of Israel, Judas, Ananias, Sapphira and today’s fallen away church were also defeated.137 Subduing kingdoms means conquering them, bringing them under subjection to God by faith in His Word which frees them from their subjection to the devil.138 The Lord continues to send His servants into the world for this same purpose.139 God had to send Himself into the world as Christ to die, resurrect, ascend, and pour Himself into us so we might be one with Him just like Christ was on earth with the Father.140 He did this so that His ministry of redemption would not only begin but would continue to grow and flourish till the end.141 Because of Christ in us, are we able to do His works, both subduing the entire earth unto Him and establishing the earth as God’s kingdom.142

He displayed His anger and intolerant wrath towards sin, Satan, and the corruption in the world two thousand years ago, and is presently doing this from Heaven by His gospel through His people on earth.143 He will be as quick in judgment today in us against these things as He was then.144 The final book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, states that no fornicator, murderer, sorcerer, whoremonger, idolater, or liar shall enter the kingdom of Heaven. They all "shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone."145 You must have faith in God’s Word, His judgments to believe you need to repent.

The satanic world system and its mouth, the media, spend millions of dollars fabricating propaganda which basically says we shouldn’t be angry at anything, with the exception of God, God’s Word, and Christians, those who tell the truth about Satan and his world system.146 They say that the world shouldn’t be angry at sin, Satan, and corruption, but instead should become satanic, sinful, and corrupt, since that is our original nature.147 True, it is our nature, but Christ makes the vilest sinner whole, and with His life in us He can live a sinless life for us in us.148 He will live His perfect life in us free from sin, Satan, and corruption, if we by faith let Him.149 That, they won’t tell you. You can see how false their doctrine is compared to God’s truth. Almost the entire world has accepted this satanic doctrine rather than receive the Word and the life of God into their spirits by faith.

We are not to fear anyone other than God, and we are not to listen to or serve anyone other than God.150 Why? Because God said so. He also said we will spend eternity in Hell’s torments if we do.151 By faith you are to believe Him if you want to be saved.152 Jesus said, "Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into Hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him [God]."153

There is no doubt of our victory when we cry out to God in prayer either for our defense or to ask Him to fight against Satan, sin, and the corruption in the world.154 Therefore, ask God by prayer to help you fight against the elements of the world. Both our prayerful act of faith and our obedience to God really works.155 Therefore, present your case before God in prayer and ask Him to send help from Heaven into your realm. We are to warn the world like Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and the other prophets.156 And as Jesus said, by faith in Christ’s Word we are to go "into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."157

"OUR LORD’S FAVORITE THING IS FAITH." Our faith is the one thing Christ wants to see in us.158 It will be the sole thing He will look for at His second advent to earth.159 It causes every Christian to expect the honor of God directly hearing and answering their prayers. Indeed, in today’s world it is one of the supreme acts of faith to show our anger and hatred against both the sin and the corruption caused in the world by the prince of hostility, Satan. By our having enough faith to do all that Christ commands, we are able to cast our souls onto God, the Christ, knowing He is more than sufficient to make us totally happy in this most miserable world.160 The honor or applause that the children of disobedience get for their sins make them pensioners of the devil himself, who is the greatest enemy God has.

Those of the world who rebel against God, His Word, and His children are the sons of pride,161 those who leave faith and take reason for their guide.162 We see how those who do these things are drowned in damnable errors too numerous to mention in this literature. The most dangerous errors, which are caused by the twisting of the scriptures, have sprung up from special interest groups, including the false and fallen away Christians, the antichrists.163 One of them like these, in the days of Jesus, was the Sadducees, which did not believe in God’s power to give them the strength to stand in a perverted world. Today these same types of individuals deny the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is the very fulfillment of the promise of Christ.164 It is the one thing which gives Christians the very power of Christ so they might stand firm in His life in this world in these very last days. The Sadducees also did not believe that Christ could raise the dead.165 Their carnal reasoning rather than faith in God was the Sadducees’ grounds for denying Christ, who is the resurrection of the dead.166 They had the Bible, possessed the book of Moses for the Word of God, yet denied Christ the resurrection mentioned therein. This their carnal reasoning laughed at, causing our Lord and Saviour to answer them plainly by saying, "Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God."167

If you are a Christian and have heard slanderous lies regarding other Christians, and perhaps believed them because you read them in a newspaper or magazine, saw them on some television program, or heard them from some "minister" in a church, you may be in danger of losing your soul. This is the work of a fallen away from Christ minister, a person who speaks evil of Christians simply because he is not a Christian himself. He thus has the wrong kind of anger and hatred, which means he has anger and hatred towards God, towards God’s Word, and towards those who preach God’s Word. The Word of God crosses this man’s own will and his lusts, therefore, he hates to hear it.

Another cause of anger towards Christians stems from jealousy, the same jealousy wicked Cain had for Abel. This was not only because the one Cain slandered had a deeper faith, knowledge, and love for keeping God’s commandments, but also because Abel, through his faith, had the blessing of God upon him.168 God earnestly warns these corrupt ones who falsely cast aspersions on the names of others behind their innocent backs. He will curse them and destroy them. By doing this He teaches all of us to fear Him. "Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm [whether verbal or physical]."169 God says, "Vengeance is mine; I will repay."170

A sick or distempered spiritual eye sees everything as being sick and distempered, even when it is good. This is because the eye is evil.171 A mind already set against the true men and women of God is ready to impose its own warped sense of judgment upon them. This demented reasoning against God, against God’s Word, and against God’s people, those in whom He lives and works, loses every bit of rationality when they place the truth against their overwhelming belief in their own opinions and thoughts.

Too many have read the scriptures not so much to be informed by them as to confirm what they have already decided with their own satanic bias and prejudiced mind. They have chosen the ideas planted into their heads in the same manner that Samson chose his Philistine wife, simply because it pleases them to do so.172 Then they wickedly come in this false way to the Word in order to gain the scripture’s consent for their mischief.

When the Son of God came to earth and revealed the Father, it was so communication with God and the assurance of His power might become clearer to us and belong to every child of God.173 When He was exalted to the throne of glory, it was so He might first send His immortal life down into our hearts, then follow it with the baptism of the Holy Spirit to give us the power to stand as the body of Christ on earth in these last days.174 The triune Godhead has its own blessed life in Heaven to maintain in us, giving us in divine power the blessed life of fellowship with God.175 This is to be the major milestone of the new covenant, that each member of Christ’s body must walk in personal communion with God within, through Christ Jesus, the Christians’ Comforter.176 "And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know Me [saith the Lord, all believers, not those who reject Him], from the least to the greatest [in the body of Christ]. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their [former] iniquities will I remember no more."177 This is because they have done what He commanded after salvation by sinning no more.178

Again, Jesus said, "No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."179 This means no one else can save your soul but Jesus. Faith sees this truth. By faith come unto the Father for your salvation, your eternal life with power by the life of God entering your spirit through Christ right 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.
Pastor Tony Alamo
