The Nations Are Waiting

One of GOD’S lessons to learn is that when you are being chastised by GOD because of your disobedience to HIM, you don’t ever give up. This is because you know you’re being chastised for your own good—if you know GOD.1 GOD loves you, and it doesn’t give GOD any pleasure to see a person sent to Hell for an eternity.2

At the time of a strong rebuke from GOD, it always has seemed to me that maybe this is the end. The spirit of the devil is always on the scene to try to make you believe that all is lost.3 Depression sets in. This is when the devil tells you that you might just as well give up because you’re going to Hell anyway!

At first, you will get a feeling of freedom from GOD when you are knowingly, wantingly disobeying HIM, as did the prophet Jonah (Jonah 1:3-5).

The WORD of the LORD plainly came unto Jonah, telling him to “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before ME” (Jonah 1:2). Jonah, like many others, knew that when you begin telling people of their wickedness, especially in a major city, there might be retaliation against you.

Today, with this entire world of wicked people, retaliation will definitely come. In many places, they have even made it a hate crime to warn people and confront them about their sins of disobedience to GOD, sins that surely will send people’s souls to Hell for eternity, such as: adultery,4 fornication,5 lesbianism, homosexuality,6 bisexuality, witchcraft,7 first degree murder8 (which includes abortion), not loving GOD with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength (which is the first and most important commandment), and not loving your neighbor as yourself.9

Loving other people as you love yourself is a commandment because GOD doesn’t want anyone to be without the knowledge of GOD.10 If people don’t know these things of GOD, such as what sin is, how will they cease from sin, repent, believe the gospel, and be s­aved from an eternity in Hell?11

Disbelief is as big a sin as anyone can sin.12 It is a major sin for you not to study the Bible, to see and to learn the way everyone is to live—for their own good.13 The whole world is deceived because they don’t know the WORD of GOD, which is the King James Version Bible, not the other versions. The new versions are satanic because even though they tell a lot of truth, they also tell you that you are still a sinner, after GOD, through JESUS, has saved your soul. After you are saved, you are no longer a sinner.14 Then you are a son of GOD, a member of the body of CHRIST, a new creature.15 Because the GODHEAD by the HOLY SPIRIT now lives in you, you have the power of GOD in you over sin, Satan, and the world of sin, if you keep the commandments.16

We are to read the entire WORD of GOD, wherein JESUS warns of the false prophets who write Bibles, but here and there, inject doctrines that are poisonous to the human soul, such as “no one is perfect,” as if the WORD of GOD, which is SPIRIT AND LIFE, has no power.17 These false prophets tell us Romans, chapter 13, states that satanic secular government agents are GOD’S authorities when, in reality, GOD’S authorities are HIS ministers, the true ministers of the true gospel!!

JESUS said, “Beware of false prophets” (Matthew 7:15), because if you believe them, you will surely not enter Heaven.18 Common sense should tell you that JESUS didn’t come into the world, suffer, and die, so that you could continue sinning.19 The reason the spirit of Satan outlawed the Bible is that he knows if you read it and receive it into your heart, soul, and mind, you will have the strength to resist him.20

Jonah knew how sinners react to the WORD of GOD, so instead of doing what GOD told him to do, to go to Nineveh, he “rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. Then the mariners [sailors] were afraid,” cried out to their gods (false gods), and “cast forth the wares [cargo] that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them” (Jonah 1:3-5).

Jonah went to sleep—just like the people of GOD who are backslidden today—and the shipmaster, the unsaved shipmaster, woke him up, saying, “What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy GOD, if so be that GOD will think upon us, that we perish not” (Jonah 1:6).

They cast lots to find out who on the ship was the cause of this evil upon them, and the lot fell upon Jonah. Jonah confessed to them, after being identified as the problem. “He said unto them, I am a Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the GOD of Heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land. Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them” (Jonah 1:9-10). After praying and attempting to get to land with no success, “they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging. Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows” (Jonah 1:15-16).

Today, when you ask the average person, “Who got swallowed by a whale?”, they will answer, “Pinocchio.” The LORD had prepared a great fish. JESUS said it was a whale (Matthew 12:40). The whale swallowed Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, just as JESUS in the future would be in the pit of Hell for our sins three days and three nights.21 JESUS took our place so we can be transformed from sinners to sons of GOD.22

Jonah knew not to give up! Don’t ever give up on your eternal soul! Jonah 2:1-3 states, “Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his GOD out of the fish’s belly, And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and HE heard me; out of the belly of Hell cried I, and THOU heardest my voice. For THOU hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all THY billows and THY waves passed over me.”

All of these trials and tribulations could have been avoided if Jonah would have obeyed GOD in the first place. Jonah continued praying, “Then I said, I am cast out of THY sight; yet I will look again toward THY holy temple. The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast THOU brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my GOD. When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto THEE, into THINE holy temple. They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. But I will sacrifice unto THEE with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD” (Jonah 2:4-9).

After Jonah’s prayer to GOD, “the LORD spake [talked] unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land” (Jonah 2:10). “And the WORD of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the WORD of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown” (Jonah 3:1-4). The city repented; they fasted and prayed. Nothing evil happened to the people of the city. Just look at all the excellence that happens when people obey GOD.

The people of the world today are worse than the people of Nineveh because they know more of the WORD of GOD, but they ignore it. Maybe they can be saved. We won’t know unless we get to them with the gospel.23

If you don’t want to be supernaturally chastened by the LORD, then repent of your disobedience (your witchcraft).24 I would rather be punished by GOD here while I am alive than be sent to Hell and be in torment forever. This is our choice! What are you going to do? Repent? Or perish? It’s better to repent. Repent of your sins now by saying this prayer to GOD now:


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).

The LORD wants you to tell others of your salvation (Mark 16:15). You can become a distributor of Pastor Tony Alamo’s Gospel literature. We’ll send you literature free of charge. Call or email us for more information. Share this message with someone else.

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).
