PROSPERITY

by Tony Alamo

Before I was saved, one of my biggest turn-offs to Christianity was those who preached a false message of prosperity, "men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain" (I Tim. 6:5-6).

Christ and His disciples then, as well as His disciples now, are not at all concerned about worldly gain.1 The Apostle Peter testified that he had no silver or gold. In the book of Acts, chapter three, verses two through eight state, "A certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God." Peter, guided by the Holy Spirit, knew that he was godly even though he did not have silver or gold. He had confidence that the Triune Godhead was continuing His Incarnation on earth in him.2 He heard the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit tell him, "We’re going to heal that man. We want this recorded in the New Testament so that other disciples in the future will know and understand the Church life, the body life, which is the truly prosperous life."

Isaiah 7:14 makes it clear that the first major step God would make towards our true prosperity, our salvation, was the Word of God’s Incarnation which appeared in the New Testament.3 The second major step in God’s plan towards our salvation is the Son of God walking on this earth.4 This is the continuation of the Word’s Incarnation on earth.5

We have two different worlds. One is the condemned world of Adam which is held fast in bondage to Satan.6 The other world is the eternal creation in Christ.7 This is the world where we see the activity of God’s Holy Spirit.8 Jesus said we cannot live in both worlds. If we could, we would be able to have two masters. Jesus said, "No man can serve two masters" (Matt. 6:24). There are only two masters. One is carnal and condemned, and the other is spiritual and eternal.9 One is temporal, Adam, and the other is eternal, Christ, the fullness of the Godhead bodily.10 We had no choice about being born into Adam’s race of carnality and condemnation. According to the Bible, there is only one escape from Adam’s carnal and condemned world: that is through death.11 We enter Christ’s world of immortality by spiritual birth.12 This is our entry into the family of God. This birth gives us a living hope through the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from the dead. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead" (I Pet. 1:3).

Having become united with Him by "the likeness of His death," you are united with Him by "the likeness of His resurrection" (Rom. 6:5). The death of our way, our will, puts an end to our relationship with the old world,13 while resurrection brings us into living touch with the new world.14 This is the Triune God living on the earth in us.15 The Apostle John told us, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world" (I John 2:15-16). The preachers of prosperity tell you to love the world and the things therein. Beloved ones whom Christ has died for, their message is not from the Lord but from the devil.16

In John 8:23, Jesus strongly rebukes the ungodly Jews who live according to this world, not according to the world to come. The same applies to these ungodly preachers of this world’s prosperity. His words are very strong: "Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world" (John 8:23). "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do" (John 8:44), which is "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" (I John 2:16). The Lord is telling the ungodly Jews that their place of origin is from beneath, while His place of origin is from above. Your place of origin is of this world, while My place of origin is not of this world. My question is, from where did the message of the false prophets originate? There are so many false prophets today that we need to go to the Bible to determine the origin of every message that is preached to us.17 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit" (John 3:6).

The message these false prophets would preach to you is that you are not of the Lord if you’re not prospering in silver, in gold, or in some worldly business. Jesus tells us that the world hates us because our origin is from above the world: "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you" (John 15:19). The world hates us because we preach the cross. Jesus said, "Deny [thyself], and take up [thy] cross daily, and follow Me" (Luke 9:23). Allow Christ with the Father by the Spirit to dispense Himself through you into others. Allow God, as Christ did, to live out His life in you here on earth. This is the continuation of the Word’s Incarnation.18

Jesus will not use us to impress people by wealth. We are to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread [which means both spiritual bread from Heaven and the bread necessary for our body’s function]" (Matt. 6:11). Following Jesus is not keeping up with the Jones and sending our children to ungodly universities. The body, or Church life, is not a life of seeking worldly wealth.19 Our treasure is in Heaven. Jesus said, "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matt. 6:21).

If an eternity in Heaven and being heirs and joint-heirs with Christ is precious, wonderful, and glorious to you, you will not seek wealth in a condemned world.20 Instead, you will be laying up your treasures in Heaven. Jesus commands, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal" (Matt. 6:19-20). If you are not of this world but are of the kingdom of Heaven, you will be laying up treasures in the kingdom first by seeking the kingdom of God on this earth then by letting God add all things to you.21

Jesus said, "Take NO thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles [the unsaved] seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore NO thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matt. 6:31-34).

Walking in the spiritual world is the rule.22 We must constantly drink the Holy Spirit until we are saturated in order to insure our stay there. Christ with the Father by the Holy Spirit must penetrate, saturate, and soak every fiber of our spirits, souls, and bodies with His Holy Spirit in order for us to be in fellowship with Christ, to enjoy Christ, and to be one with Christ with the Father by the Spirit.23 It is a commandment for every believer to be baptized in the Spirit by the Triune God. "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit" (I Cor. 12:13).

Our prosperity is our being baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body, the body of Christ.24 If we are conscious of this one item, whatever it is that we are to have in this world will be given to us.25 This is a promise from the living God, and His Word states it is "impossible for God to lie" (Heb. 6:18). The true Christian does not look upon wealth as being the glory of God. Most of the people in the world don’t feel that a person’s wealth is the glory of God. Some people’s wealth was derived from Satan; others worked for what they have. The true Christian receives what he has from God by first seeking the kingdom of God. Messages regarding worldly prosperity have caused millions of people to not be saved.

When we are baptized into one body by one Spirit, the Spirit of the Triune God, we are baptized into the body of Christ. Christ then is our life, and the Holy Spirit is the reality of Christ.26 We all must be baptized into this one living body by this one Holy Spirit so that we might express Christ in the world. If we were to tell the world that worldly goods and worldly gain in this condemned world is equal to godliness or God’s glory, we would have to say that the world’s biggest and richest cult, which has killed many millions of people in its attempt to stop God’s message and rule the world, is the most God-like and glorious thing in this world, or state that atheist billionaires are the most God-like individuals in this world.

Christ assures us all, "My kingdom is not of this world: if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight [with carnal weapons], that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is My kingdom not from hence" (John 18:36). Christ was not born in a palace, but in a manger.27 According to the flesh He was a human child, but according to the Spirit He was "The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isa. 9:6).28 He chose to be born in a manger to show the world that true prosperity cannot be found in this condemned world but only in laying up treasures for ourselves in Heaven.29

God doesn’t look on our outward appearance. He looks upon the heart, the inward man.30 The Apostle James tells us, "Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here’s a good seat for you," but say to the poor man, "You stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet," have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

"Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich [prosperous] in faith and to inherit the kingdom He promised those who love Him? But you have insulted the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? Are they not the ones who are slandering the noble name of Him to whom you belong?

"If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture [the law of the Spirit], "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it" (Jas. 2:2-10, Orig. Gk).31

God plainly states that there will be a new Heaven, a new earth, a new Jerusalem, and a new universe.32 If we’re saved, all this is our true prosperity. It belongs to those of us who are like Abraham, Moses, and the other lights of the world.33 "By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward [his eternal prosperity]. By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw Him who is invisible" (Heb. 11:24-27, Orig. Gk).

God’s Word tells that our stay in this present world is short like a vapor,34 a blade of grass,35 and a shadow.36 Those who judge godliness to be material gain are not using God’s judgment, but Satan’s.37 When God states, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33), He doesn’t mean we shall be given the Brooklyn Bridge, Madison Square Garden, a chain of hamburger stands, or any other such thing. He means the entire universe.38

God appoints stewards for His money who don’t consider worldly wealth important.39 Stewards of God, those who handle God’s money affairs, are given money to distribute for the necessities of the body of Christ.40 Stewards are those who God entrusts with His finances. These are the ones God knows will not be corrupted by money, since they know it is not theirs. They are entrusted with God’s money so they might do what the gospel says: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).

It is true that many believers have been blessed with worldly wealth, yet it is also true that many more have not been blessed with worldly wealth.41 God allows certain men who would never be affected by having the things of this world to have wealth.42 The true Church is a body of Christians living by the Spirit in many locations of the world.43 Churches created by people, which are nothing more than buildings of various sizes are not the Church of God. The Church of God is cemented together by one Spirit, the Spirit of God.44 The true Church of God "is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all [every saved person]" (Eph. 4:4-6).

The Apostle John tells us, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world" (I John 2:15-16).

If the Spirit says love not the world or the things of the world, how could anyone of the Lord calling themselves a pastor be busy with the things of this world?45 How could they, if they are not corrupt, be teaching corrupt doctrine such as that which states gain is godliness?

It is an abomination to God, to me, and to others who are of the Lord to hear false prophets teaching you are not of the Lord if you are not rich.46 It is an abomination to hear them say, "Send me money, and God will send you money." They even send their children to anti-Christ universities, thinking they are doing well by them.

Paul stated, "I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound" (Phlp. 4:12). I know this as well. So did Job.47 All those who are of the Lord have said, "The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord" (Job 1:21). These corrupt preachers underestimate the intelligence of the world.

Recently, as a source of income for the church, I became a costume designer for the wealthiest people of the world, people such as the Sultan of Brunei, King Faisal of Saudi Arabia, King Omar Bongo of Gabon, Africa, the third richest man in the world, and Jacqueline Onassis, as well as many presidents, many other kings, sports figures, singers, and motion picture actors and actresses. None of these people professed Christ, yet they are the richest individuals in the world. They, according to the false prophets, would be the most godly people in the world. The people that preach such evil are not wealthy at all next to the people I have designed clothing for and sold clothing to.

The origin of this scripture is from above: "But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition" (I Tim. 6:9). These people are leading others into hurtful lusts. "They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" (Matt. 15:14). How many of these sad men and women have we seen "crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame"? (Heb. 6:6). How many have we seen "who hath trodden under foot the Son of God [and His true message of humility], and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith He was sanctified, an unholy thing"? (Heb. 10:29).

King Solomon, when praying, was seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. He gave no thought to long life, money, prosperity, or great wealth because it didn’t mean anything to him.48 Because he didn’t ask for such things, God told him, "I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. And if thou wilt walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days" (I Kin. 3:13-14).

Ezekiel began wading ankle deep into true prosperity, the spiritual river of life. He never regressed, but instead went forward until the water was up to his knees, then to his loins. Then the water of life became so deep that he could not walk in it any longer. It was so deep that he could swim in it and be totally immersed.49 This great torrent, this great river of life, is so immense that it cannot be crossed. In other words, there’s more than enough for everyone to be eternally filled both inwardly and outwardly. Everyone can be permeated, soaked, immersed, and drenched in it continuously for their LIFE of eternal, spiritual prosperity.50 We need to be saturated, permeated, and soaked in the Spirit continuously so that we may be eternally prosperous spiritually.51 We who are the servants of the Lord need to know that the things we have came from God, not from television fund-raising gimmicks or any other kind of gimmick.

Again, the reality of the Spirit is the reality of Christ in us and with us, with His life giving us life, growth, and guidance into everything that is His will for the furtherance of the kingdom of God on this earth.52 The glory of God is not worldly gain. The crown and glory of God is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Our swimming in this baptism is called walking in the Spirit, the river of life,53 the streams of life,54 and the fountain of life.55 This water is Christ, the Comforter,56 who is the fullness of the Godhead living, working, and increasing in us.57 It is our strength, our wisdom, and our hope of glory.58 Everyone who will be in Heaven must experience, enjoy, and possess this daily, for this is God’s precious, wonderful, and glorious immortal Spirit, our only means of eternal life with all the riches of God, the one true prosperity.59 We must know that we have it if we are to live the true Christian life. We need Christ with the Father by the Spirit in us.60 Our holy Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, needed the Holy Spirit in His mortal body in order to carry out God’s life on earth in Him.61 We are the continuation of God’s life on earth.62 Christ, with the Father and the Holy Spirit’s life in us, is the crown and glory the world seeks to see in these last hours before Christ’s soon return.

The world has seen many of the riches of the world, both past and present. People have seen and heard of the lives of the wealthy and their bitter endings. Their lives certainly do not manifest the glory of God to me, and certainly the multibillionaires I’ve known in my life do not manifest any glory of God to me. The world needs to see the obedient disciples of Christ, not a room full of toads gloating about how much money they have or how many airplanes they fly. They need to see something more than even the working of the Spirit in their regeneration, or their being born-again of the Spirit.63 The world needs to witness the personal Spirit of Christ with the Father by the Holy Spirit as He makes Himself present through our every movement, our every work, and our every word.64 Every word we speak must be Him speaking through us.65 The winning of millions of souls to Christ, which is the bearing of much fruit, is the prosperity that the Bible speaks of.66 God condemns those multitudes of people who are deliberately willing to be deceived.67 The pure, sweet, reproving, sometimes chastening Spirit of the Lord working in us, always continuing the Word’s Incarnation embodied within us and dwelling in our hearts in the power of God’s glorified nature, is what the world desperately needs.68 He is exalted above every enemy.69 It is the Spirit of the life of Christ Jesus, the full Godhead, which frees us from the law of sin and death.70 It brings every disciple to Christ’s fullness before mankind so that they may witness His presence within them, showing the world they are living the victorious life by God’s powerful life living, working, and growing in them and through them.71

The glory of God in us has given us power over sin, Satan, the world, the flesh, the lusts of the world, death, Hell, and the grave.72 This power within us certainly does not give us the liberty to sin, as the false prophets would have you believe.73 It has given us liberty from sin, which was the reason Christ redeemed us.74

Love is the keeping of God’s commandments.75 We are kings because He rules from within us.76 We are kings because we are the temple wherein the King of kings, the Lord of lords lives, and we are priests because the High Priest, Christ, lives within us.77 Because we have put on Christ, His life is ours. Because we have put on the mind of Christ, His mind has become our mind.78 This is all given to us in the New Testament.79 We are a new creation,80 "a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a people belonging to God" (I Pet. 2:9, Orig. Gk). Therefore, "the priest’s lips should keep knowledge [keep knowing Christ with the Father by the Spirit], and they should seek the law at His mouth [the law of the Spirit living within us, which is the Word continuing His Incarnation within us for we who Christ the High Priest lives in, are the messengers of] the Lord of hosts. [But those preaching false doctrines such as world prosperity] are departed out of the way [Christ is THE WAY81]; ye have caused many to stumble at the law [the law of the Spirit, by preaching the prosperity of this condemned world, not the prosperity of laying up treasures in the kingdom of Heaven]; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi [the moral law], saith the Lord of Hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law" (Mal. 2:7-9).

Money is fine when used for the Lord’s work. However, "The love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows" (I Tim. 6:10). Any brothers or sisters that have been deceived into hearing and believing the false message of worldly prosperity instead of the spiritual prosperity in the world that is to come need to listen to the Lord, who in love tells us to repent.82 "Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty" (II Cor. 6:17-18). Christ warns us not to be lukewarm about it, or He will spit us out of His mouth.83

All messages from the Lord are meant in love, a love that is the keeping of God’s commandments.84 Let us all receive the real meaning of the Word of God so that we won’t have to burn in Hell eternally.85 Adam, Eve, and all humanity fell away from God by listening to a lie.86 That is why, if we are to spend eternity in Heaven, we must not believe a lie. We must only believe the truth of God.87 He said, "Only acknowledge thine iniquity," (Jer. 3:13) and repent of your sins.88 Reach out to the Father by prayer now for repentance, forgiveness, and regeneration so that you might be saved. He will not turn you away if you will, with your whole heart, serve Him and worship Him both in Spirit and in truth. If this is your desire, then say 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.
