The Servant of the Lord

Tony Alamo

In the Bible, the Messiah is identified as "THE SERVANT OF THE LORD" for accomplishing the work of redemption (Isaiah 42:1, 52:13, Matt. 12:18). The servant of the Lord is a worshipper of God (Neh. 1:10, Dan. 6:20).

If I had not personally seen absolute proof of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, I could not have endured the severe tribulations and persecutions caused by Satan and his many recruits embodied in wicked men and women.1

The great evidence I have personally seen of Christ’s resurrection includes many supernatural visions given to me from God early in my Christian life.2 Christ, by vision, has shown me Heaven and Hell. Christ appeared to me in one vision and I experienced many other infallible proofs of His existence.3

He, through the Holy Spirit, gave me commandments pertaining to the kingdom of God. In that particular vision where He appeared to me, He let me know that I was not studying His Word nearly enough.4 Although I was building facilities for the newly converted Christian souls, who were former drug addicts, revolutionists, thieves, murderers, etc., and were now learning the Bible, praying, being filled with the Spirit, and now strongly desired to serve Him, the Lord let me know that if I didn’t study His Word and live in His Spirit throughout each and every day, I would fall away from grace (power in God) and would be lost.5 The power of God can be found and attained only by continuous study of the Word of God and the continuous doing of what the Word commands.6

The constant, prayerful study of God’s Word throughout each day recharges the obedient soul, keeping it alive and much more powerful to meet and overcome each evil that wages war against the obedient soul every day.7

Good, Godly, inspired deeds are excellent, but without the constant, prayerful study of God’s Word to recharge us each moment of each day, this work would soon end.8 We are then without God’s armor (His power) and we are lost.9 All the inspired good deeds that God instructs us to do cannot be done if we are naked and destitute, without God’s power to defend the Gospel of Christ and our souls while we attempt to do these deeds.10

Another vision God gave me just days after my supernatural conversion was the vision where He united me in marriage to my now deceased wife, Susan. Susan and I were supernaturally united by God Himself seventeen years before she went home to our Father, April 8, 1982. It was in this very same vision that God showed me two golden spiritual pipes, one downlinking Heaven into my soul and the other uplinking my soul into Heaven. One of the pipes involuntarily pulled thousands of questions out of my heart. The questions came out of the depths of my soul so quickly that I could not determine what they were, with the exception of the first question.

The second spiritual pipe from Heaven filled my heart with the answers to those thousands of questions. Again, the questions were answered as quickly as they were asked, so I was unable to know the answers to my questions, with the exception of the first answer.

The first question pulled from my heart which I understood was, "Lord, she’s been in Your service, the ministry, for over twenty-five years. She’s smarter than I am and knows more about You, Father, than I do. Is this true that we’re supposed to be married? Is this Your command, Father?" The answer came instantly. "Yes, it is true, and that’s good for your ego." I was very surprised. My Father stunned me by saying something that I didn’t know about myself. I didn’t know that I had an ego, but I knew that it was my Father speaking to me. I realized He’s always right,11 so therefore I surely had an ego, which His Word says is not good or lawful to have, so I would need to seek my Father as how to permanently rid myself of it.12

After all the questions going up from me and the answers coming down into me from Heaven, the Holy Spirit, like rings of smoke, came down around me. Each ring spoke the words, "It’s true, it’s true, it’s true, it’s true," while the vision changed from full color to black and white, with the outline of Susan’s and my profiles facing each other, appearing like burning white steel or iron. By this time in the vision, I was not only wide awake, but could still see and hear the vision. The vision began vibrating with a noise like a supernaturally loud telephone that was left off the hook, burning and vibrating into my soul, with the Holy Spirit coming down in rings echoing, "It’s true, it’s true, it’s true, it’s true." The vision was very powerful and swift. I realized just how quickly God could take one’s soul up for judgment without warning.13 It’s so fast that there could be no time for repentance if sin was on a person’s soul. That’s why the soul must be clean, without one spot or blemish of sin.14 The vision happened to me by surprise. 15

Before the vision and the thousands, maybe millions of answers given to me, I was just an ordinary, average Christian without much power. After this supernatural experience and all the thousands, maybe millions of answers poured into me from my Father, I felt ready and eager to meet all the future assignments from Him. After the vision with the answers, I felt more than qualified to be Susan’s husband.

Susan received a vision from our Father similar to the one I received just hours or minutes before mine. She saw herself and me walking arm in arm in a beautiful garden through a large, white, arched arbor covered with big, red roses glistening with big drops of dew. She was dressed in a beautiful, full length white lace wedding gown with ruffles around the neck and wrists and I was dressed in a tuxedo. When the vision started coming to her, she cried out to the Father. "Father, I’ve been in the ministry for twenty-five years. I’ve not been deceived yet. Is this You, Father or Satan? I don’t want to be deceived at this late date. Father, why are You letting something like this happen to me? Father, why are You not verifying this? It doesn’t seem possible that You would put me together in marriage with somebody that has only been saved a few weeks, a person who is not a seasoned veteran." This was her complaint against our Father’s will for her to marry me, the vision she saw over and over again all night long with her eyes wide open. Our Father answered her, "He is young, but he is strong." She knew our Father meant I was strong in faith and that nothing could ever change me. Nothing has to this very day.

She knew our Father well enough to test the vision to be certain that this vision was from our Father. These kind of tests do not offend our Father at all. As a matter of fact, He commands everyone to test the Spirits to see if they are truly from Him or from the enemy.16 Satan often imitates the Spirit.17 Many people think they are seeing a vision from God or hearing His voice when in reality they are seeing and hearing only Satan. It is very important to be able to discern the difference lest you be deceived, and spend eternity in Hell.18

So Susan stated, "My Father, if this is You, then You show him and make him tell me. Then I’ll know it’s You.19 If it is You, I will marry him and do as You command." After this my heavenly Father showed me my vision and I told her of it. Shortly thereafter we were married. From this heavenly union came the world-wide Jesus movement, which was and still is the greatest revival of souls won for Christ in living memory, and perhaps since the world began.

My Father has given me several other visions as well as many signs and wonders which have anchored my soul in faith with my Saviour, Jesus. I keep all the commandments, because I would hate to lose the things our heavenly Father has promised all of His servants, the sons of God.20

These and other visions and signs have helped me greatly in my understanding of the scriptures. Whenever I am being persecuted by liars, and their lying, slanderous accusations are fired about me, like millions of machine gun bullets, I think of the visions from my heavenly Father which I have seen and felt, corresponding with His Word, and get a smile on my face. Enduring persecution seems exceedingly easy when I think of the beautiful, great reward of my Father’s incredible paradise, the kingdom of my Father.21

Both Susie and I, since our salvations, have had a very powerful, supernatural, prophetic connection with our heavenly Father. All the true churches the world ever knew were founded upon the same gospel we are preaching and upholding today.

Here is an astounding miracle that recently happened in the Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Arkansas area which can be substantiated by reading the accounts in the Arkansas Gazette,22 the South West Times Record,23 the Northwest Arkansas Times,24 and in court records.25 The government and the news media have constantly falsely accused both Susan and myself of every bad thing, just as wicked people falsely accused Christ, the prophets, and the apostles in their day.26 Those of you that have followed our ministry are familiar with the thousands of lies that have been told about us by government and media. Most of the lies were invented by a Pittsburgh pseudo lawyer, Peter Georgiades, who is alleged to be extorting churches27 from every religion, and gaining huge profits by seizing and selling the church assets after acquiring them, in court, by using false witnesses. His organization is called the Cult Awareness Network, and is known for kidnapping people, raping young boys and girls, and many other brutal crimes. A few government agencies and judges have been taken in and deceived by this man’s skillful slander and false accusations regarding churches and church leaders. Some judges and government officials have recently broken away from being in union with his unlawful practices and unconstitutional activities.


After I had miraculously won a major federal case in Fort Smith, Arkansas, another false federal charge and false California state charge caused me to remain in jail even after my miraculous victory. The bail on both of these false charges was exceedingly high, and a judge in Fayetteville, Arkansas would not allow me to be released on bond unless somebody I didn’t know would put up the collateral for me. The judge would not allow the church to make bail because he believed all the property of the church was mine, inferring that the church was my alter ego. This untruthful and ridiculous statement and judicial order was gendered from another court case in Fort Smith, Arkansas, once again based on the slanderous, false charges of the Georgiades’ "Cult Awareness Network" group.

As far as my bail goes, it was clear that only God could intervene.

What person that doesn’t know me would cover my bail as the judge in Fayetteville, Arkansas ordered? A Fort Smith bail bondsman named Bob Cole called me on the phone while I was in jail and said, "I’m going to bail you out of jail, Tony." I asked him "Who are you?" He replied, "I’m Bob Cole from Bob Cole Bail Bonds, Inc." I was astounded that a man who didn’t know me would call me on the phone from an obviously reputable firm and say he was going to bail me out. This truly was a miracle from God. I said, "I don’t have any collateral. The government thinks that the property of everyone I know belongs to me and the judge says that no one who knows me can put up the collateral for me." Mr. Cole said, "I know. I read all about it in the newspapers. Don’t worry, I’ll get the collateral."

Several days later, while we were in a room beside the courtroom finalizing my bail, he stated, "Tony, I’m no Christian. I smoke, drink, eat, and cuss too much." He said, "I watch a John Wayne movie every night, eat a meal, go to sleep, and never wake up until morning. But the other night I was abruptly awakened for no apparent reason, and sat bolt upright." Mr. Cole said, "I heard an audible voice tell me to, ‘Get Tony out.’" He said, "The voice didn’t tell me to ‘try to get Tony out.’ The voice said ‘GET TONY OUT,’ and I knew the voice meant what it said." Mr. Cole put up all of his businesses and properties, including his large, beautiful home, and recruited other people to put their properties up as well as collateral for my bail. Because of his work, I was bailed out of jail. Too bad Christians won’t come to the aid of Christians, as our heavenly Father commands us to do,28 rather than our Father having to raise what God calls "stones" (the unsaved) to do His work.29

Just before Bob Cole signed the papers at the courthouse with me present, he said, "I know that you’re not going to skip bail. You’re not going to run, because that voice would never have told me to bail you out if you were going to run. But I just want to tell you what would happen if you did." He said, "All of my businesses, and they run into different states, and all of my employees (he mentioned there were 35 of them) would be ruined. All my businesses and my properties would be gone, and these 35 people would be ruined as well."

I told Mr. Cole, "The very same God that spoke to you is my heavenly Father that spoke to me in the office in Beverly Hills, who caused me to seek Him and eventually get saved. My Father would never have told you to get me out of prison if I would jump bail and ruin you or anyone else." Mr. Cole said he knew what I was saying was the truth, or else he would not be doing what he was doing. He knew positively that it was God who told him to get me out of jail. I told him that his soul was so valuable to my Father that He sent His Son to die for him. There isn’t anything in the entire world, even the whole world itself, that would be worth my soul going to Hell or my causing someone else’s soul to go to Hell. I told him that he could rest assured in peace that I would never disappoint him, because I would never disappoint my heavenly Father’s trust in me.

Mr. Cole again stated, "I know you won’t." I replied, "My Father would not tell you to get a person out of jail that would jump bail. My Father would not rescue a liar, a thief, a user, a brainwasher, a mind controller, a slave labor camp operator, a cult leader, a fraud, a tax fraud, a tax evader, a scam artist, or any other kind of evil, immoral, unscrupulous type of person that I have been falsely accused of."

There are many more visions, miracles, signs and wonders that I have seen and experienced since my conversion nearly thirty-two years ago than the ones mentioned in this literature. I have written more accounts of these, which will be released beginning in January 1996.

Our nation and the world must rise up in the power of God rather than lie down and be walked over by Satan and his demon army, the fallen angels.30 Many religions have been misled to believe they should bear arms in the perilous times in which we live.31 The Words of Jesus command the opposite.32 He states, "For all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword."33 2 Corinthians 10:4 states, "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds." We must use the one and only true spiritual weapon, the weapon my heavenly Father used Himself which is His Son, "the Word of God."34

With the physical eye we see Satan’s vast empire and multitudes of followers. How few there are today of Christ’s followers.35 Because of it, there are mountains of precious souls lying dead in their sins under Satan’s foot of pride,36 and few march under the blood stained banner of the Lord Jesus Christ.37 Many people foolishly think that Hell is stronger than Heaven, and that the arms [the followers] of Satan are more powerful and victorious than Christ and the work He did on the cross.38 Where can you find Christians that truly follow the Saviour into Heaven? It’s obvious there are very few.39

However, Deuteronomy 32:30 states one Christian will chase a thousand, and two ten thousand.40 So because each Christian multiplies ten times, three would chase a hundred thousand, and four a million, five ten million, six one hundred million, seven a billion, and eight of us will chase ten billion, more than twice the entire population of the earth. Because of this, the army of Christ need not be as many as the sinners. "For they that be with us [the few Christians] are more than they that be with them [the enemy of Christianity]."41 But can you imagine our advantage if there were millions of us, millions of true Christians? Few being stronger than the multitude has been the case many times in Bible History42 including Noah, his wife, his three sons and their three wives.43 Through the heavenly Father’s actions, the whole world, except for Noah and his small company, were drowned.44

When Satan attacks a true saint, he has no success. It is as though a tiny frog-like spirit helplessly attempts to attack a high, spiritual tower behind a high wall with very strong gates, and bars.45 Satan cannot penetrate this kind of city which is the true, Spirit-filled Christian. Satan and his imps are as unclean, weak spirits, groveling, crawling on the earth and unable to take hold of the least of true saints who have been fastened into the Lord like branches in a strong oak tree.46 Christ has brought the true Christian out of Satan’s dominion with a high hand,47 in spite of Satan’s forces and all the fury of Hell.48

You have read just a few of the accounts of the supernatural experiences that God has given to myself and my deceased wife, Susan. If you believe our account, it should convince you enough that God is the same today as when He did great and mighty wonders in the Old Testament, and when He walked the earth in person doing great, mighty wonders in the New Testament.49 Our heavenly Father is no respecter of persons.50 He will bless you if you serve Him, and curse you if you don’t.51 In blessing you, He will give you tremendous assurance and great faith so you may stand mighty and strong in a world that has no confidence any longer in itself. That’s why people today hide in drugs, booze, entertainment, sports and the other many diversities of temporal amusement escapisms.

The whole world is standing at the edge of the Red Sea. It has no choice but to turn back and be destroyed by the enemy then afterwards face God’s final, terrible judgments and penalties, or to seek our heavenly Father for deliverance with all its heart, soul, mind, and strength and wait for our Father to open a door and freeway, where there once seemed to be no sure way, so they may proceed with confidence to His promised rewards given to all those who have obeyed.52

This is obviously the time to choose to serve the heavenly Father, that is, the Father of believers only.53 He is the Father of those who have been sanctified by Him. Those who have been restored by the nativity of spiritual power have begun to be the sons of God. When we true Christians pray, we say "Our Father,"54 because He has begun to be ours. He has ceased to be the Father of unbelievers who have forsaken Him. A sinful man cannot be a son. The name of sons is attributed to those to whom remission of sins is granted. To them, immortality is promised anew. In the Words of our Lord Himself, "Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever, but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free [from being a servant of sin], ye shall be free indeed."55

We become God’s son when united with the Son of God. Just as a branch grafted onto a tree is one with the tree, you may become a son of God, grafted like a branch into the only begotten Son of God right now, this very moment, by praying this prayer unto the heavenly Father.


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.
