THE DEPTHS OF SATAN
by Tony Alamo
Do you really think you know the depths of Satan? Do you think you know the height, the depth, the width, and the breadth of how ugly, wicked, evil, corrupt, and damning the ruler of this world is?1 You are an amateur with your knowledge of not only Satan, but of GOD.
In the book of Revelation, the LORD mentions one of the seven churches (Thyatira) as being the church that allowed the doctrine of Jezebel to enter into the four walls of that church (Revelation 2:20). The people in the church that allowed this to happen knew what they had done, but JESUS said to the others in the church, “As many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth MY works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I [JESUS] received of MY FATHER. And I will give him the morning star [which means a deeper enlightenment of the WORD of GOD]” (Revelation 2:24-28).
Now the depths of Satan are really all that is going on in the world today. I’m saying this to those of you who think you know it all. Remember, according to GOD, you really don’t know anything.2 The depths of Satan is really the one world government, the new world order, and the way in which they are making good to be evil, and evil to be good (Isaiah 5:20-24).3 The Bible says in these last days they will actually kill you (strong Christians), thinking that they are doing GOD a good service (John 16:2). In other words, they will murder us (born-again Christians), thinking that they are doing GOD a favor. At the moment, they are giving me the silent treatment, because they figure when they publicize what they are doing to me, more people will read my website and be saved. Satan’s powers of darkness gets very nervous when they are exposed, when they no longer have a cloak for their wickedness.4
This is the year 2012, and since 1964, Susie and I have been in headlines in the media, where we have been falsely accused of every damnable thing you could ever think of, and things that you could never think of, because as JESUS says, it is very possible that you don’t know the depths of Satan.
The book of Revelation states that Satan “deceiveth the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). How does Satan deceive the whole world? In order to answer this question, you have to begin knowing the depths of Satan, the depths of sin, and the way he has, and still is, manipulating the world. I have been in the ministry for almost half a century, and in these almost fifty years, Satan has attacked, manipulated the truth, and lied about my late wife Susan, myself, and our church hundreds of times.
Every time we have undergone these satanic attacks, the devil has used the same methods, and this is how it begins: The first step begins with preposterous false accusations (demonizing us), which he feeds to the news media. This he does to make the media-listening world believe that we are some kind of scoundrels. They always add to their lies that we are some kind of a cult.
It may be hard for you to believe that all this is being conceived of and orchestrated out of Rome, Italy, the Vatican, which receives its power from Satan.5 You’re probably wondering why the Vatican would be interested in smearing little old Tony Alamo, his wife Susan, and their little old-fashioned country church. The reason is perhaps Satan knows how powerful the WORD of GOD is that they (we) preach. The WORD of GOD is the most powerful weapon in the whole universe (Hebrews 4:12-13).6 This is the very weapon JESUS chose with which to fight Satan (Matthew 4:1-11); and incidentally, HE destroyed and defeated the devil.7
“The WORD of GOD is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). I can’t think of any better weapon to fight the devil with than the WORD of GOD. For years they have said we have guns, but we have never had guns. For years they have said we are dangerous, but we are not dangerous, except to the devil, because we tell the world how he operates.
In the mid-sixties, we were winning drug addicts, hippies, and all sorts of degenerates to the LORD, such as drug peddlers, pornographers, and you name it, out of lives of crime and despair. People were committing suicide. There were hundreds of them fighting the police, turning over police cars, which Sue and I saw them do on the Sunset Strip. We saw these drug addict hippies take the flashlights and night sticks away from the police and beat them over the head with them, then pick them up and play volley ball with them. It is frightening to see a mob of drug addicts who are hippies (hundreds of them) totally out of control. There were all the gangs, such as the Crips, the Bloods, and many others. Sue and I waded into that mob armed with our gospel tracts. We told the hippies and drug addicts to stop, that JESUS CHRIST is coming back to earth again, and told them if they don’t stop, they would wind up in Hell for eternity.
Our second church was on Crescent Heights Blvd., one half block off the Sunset Strip near the Whiskey a Go Go, where all these crazy things were happening. In those days, our church was a big mansion which we rented for $500.00 a month. The church held around five hundred people—bare-footed hippies, along with movie stars, such as Elvis Presley, Burt Reynolds, and Candice Bergen.
Our thanks for saving the lives of those West Hollywood sheriffs was that they arrested Sue and me, and the corrupt judges in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood stated that we were a public nuisance because we were distributing our literature on the Sunset Strip in front of the nudie bars to the drug peddlers and prostitutes. We were all carrying Bibles, and according to Satan, this is a sin, so we had to move our church to Sierra Highway in Saugus, California, around forty minutes from Hollywood, and around ten minutes from Newhall. The folks in that area were mad at us because we had blacks, Mexicans, whites, and Orientals—people of all races. We were raided by the local police. The mayor of Los Angeles began harassing us, but we would not stop because JESUS died for all people.8 According to HIM, nobody is superior to anyone else.9
Since then, we have been accused of holding people prisoner, running slave labor camps with children, having tunnels with prisoners inside, being communist, being tax evaders, wanting to kidnap a federal judge (Morris Arnold), being child abusers, being child molesters, and being counterfeiters. There were also many other accusations, which are all false. Now they are charging everyone in my church, saying that they aided and abetted me in the false crimes they said I committed. They are also selling their properties. The newspapers are stating that if anyone sees any of our people distributing any of my literature, they are to call 911.10 This is unparalleled, because people should call 911 only for an emergency, not if they see people passing out literature about JESUS. This is only a small part of the depths of Satan.
The presidential election is just another part of the depths of Satan—a diversion to keep your mind on something that really doesn’t matter at all. Diversions are meant to keep your mind from being on the fact that JESUS is coming back to earth. They don’t want you to learn that everyone on earth is a loser because Satan has deceived them all,11 so their souls are all lost, and they will all spend eternity forever in the Lake of Fire if they don’t repent.12 “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 25:30).
JESUS warns us all that “all that will live Godly in CHRIST JESUS shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).13 But we who are saved are to rejoice because we are going to spend eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 5:10-12). “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD hath prepared for them that love HIM [and keep HIS commandments]” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
The proper way to live the Christian life is to follow the pattern that God has set forth in the book of Acts. We have been living that life for almost fifty years and have never gone hungry or lacked a place to sleep. Communal living, mentioned in the book of Acts, is a Spartan way of life, but it is also the Godly way of life where you will have no lack of any necessary thing (Acts 2:42-47, 4:31-37).
I am one of the two witnesses that stand before the god of this world (which is Satan). Stand with us by becoming born again of the SPIRIT by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11

Tony Alamo Christian Ministries,
I cannot thank you enough for the response to my letter. It is a blessing, and you are always on my prayer list. It has been so long since Tony and I were in Texarkana together. Pastor Alamo was the one person who got me past all the hypocrites of Christianity. I still see it everywhere I go, but I know the truth. Tony talked about it in his testimony, “Dry Bones.” Tell Tony I said “Hi,” and he is always in my prayers too. God bless you all.
