I have always been amazed, in my forty-seven years in the ministry, how that so much jealousy exists in the ministry, and all the heresy which exists in the so-called Christian churches. The demonic activity is staggering.

Their ministers (false ministers) are jealous of the greatest ancient saints of the Bible, so with their false doctrines, they make it difficult for those of us who preach the WORD of GOD truthfully. For example, in 2 Samuel 22:33 David said, “GOD is my strength and power [he gives GOD all the glory for his miraculous killing of Goliath, and for his other miraculous conquests]: and HE maketh my way perfect.”

After the death of David, it is written of his son Solomon in 1 Kings 11:4, “For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives [700 of them] turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his GOD, as was the heart of David his father.”1 Here and in many other places in the WORD of GOD, it says that David was perfect with the LORD, even though he had many wives.2 Verse 6 says, “And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.”

The WORD of GOD says, “Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that HE commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite” (1 Kings 15:5). Here GOD does not say that he was not perfect for GOD to have given David many wives, but noted that David sinned by taking Uriah’s wife, then sending Uriah to the front lines to be killed in the war.3 These false prophets do their best to make David look like a pervert, even when it was GOD who gave David his many wives.

However, GOD never gave David another man’s wife.

Now, this does not mean that you can take more than one wife if GOD doesn’t give you more than one wife. Since I’ve been saved, I’ve heard so many people proclaim that they are another David, another Moses, or another JESUS! These are NOT people of the LORD! JESUS warned us there would be others in the last days proclaiming themselves to be CHRIST. JESUS told us not to believe them!4 When JESUS comes back to earth, HE will come in the clouds, and every eye shall see HIM.5 This hasn’t happened yet!

Now the prophet Nathan confirms that GOD gave David’s wives to him. In 2 Samuel 12:7-9, Nathan began telling David that the adultery David had committed with Uriah’s wife was no secret to GOD or to him. He told David this message from GOD: “Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD GOD of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives [plural—is it sin if GOD HIMSELF gives you something, such as many wives? I don’t think so. If you think so, you are the same as saying that you are righteous and that GOD is a liar, a sinner. You’re calling the HOLY SPIRIT a sinner, which makes you a blasphemer of the HOLY SPIRIT, and there is no forgiveness for this sin, not in this world, and not in the world to come6].”

Nathan continues in verse 8b saying that GOD gave David “thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel [wives from Israel] and of Judah [wives from Judah]; and if that had been too little, I [GOD] would moreover have given unto thee such and such things [more and more of your own Godly wives if you would have asked]. Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in HIS sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.”

GOD severely punished David for committing adultery and for murdering Uriah so he could take his wife,7 but HE never punished David for the wives that HE, GOD, gave him. Why not? Because it is not sin. It doesn’t matter what ignorant or false preachers say. The false preachers will also tell you that there is trouble in this kind of polygamist marriage, inferring that there are no problems in a monogamous marriage. Statistics claim that more than 70% of all monogamous marriages end in divorce. Adultery has reached epidemic proportions, as incest has. Children are taught that homosexuality is all right in the government-run public schools; and the ungodly government has the gall to tell GOD their views on what is right and wrong. The Antichrist is working hard today!

“And David perceived that the LORD had established him king over Israel, and that HE had exalted his kingdom for HIS people Israel’s sake. And David took him more concubines [which are secondary wives] and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron: and there were yet sons and daughters born to David” (2 Samuel 5:12-13). The dictionary defines a wife as not only being married for the usual purposes, but also a wife is a woman of low employment as strawberry wives or “a woman.”

In Italy and in Greece (during Paul’s ministry), the culture was like ours in the United States. They believed in adultery and fornication, but not plural marriages as do the Jews and Arabs. When Paul was establishing churches in those areas, he instructed his deacons and bishops to have only one wife, lest the local citizens think them to be evil, as people in our heathen nation consider plural marriages to be (1 Timothy 3:2). It is unfortunate that the people and the churches (most of them) don’t know or understand the Bible, and by this, I mean the whole Bible.

I would not advise men to acquire more than one wife in the United States because the people, in their ignorance, and the anti-GOD government will hate you and prosecute you for it. This is another reason the Muslims call the people of the U.S. “infidels.” The correct age for marriage can be puberty,8 but I wouldn’t advise you to do it in the U.S. However, GOD approves of it at puberty for many, but the citizens of the U.S. and the secular government do not approve of GOD or their own U.S. Constitution.

Samson has been unrighteously blamed for being a womanizer for so long that I finally was tired of hearing about it.  First of all, there is nothing wrong with men and women being attracted to each other, according to the rules, which are the commandments of GOD. But even Samson’s mother and father had no idea that Samson wanting a Philistine wife was of the LORD.

Judges 14:1-4 says, “And Samson went down to Timnath, and saw a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines. And he came up, and told his father and his mother, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife. Then his father and his mother said unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said unto his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well. But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he [Samson] sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.”

Samson, his father, and his mother all went down to Timnath, and a young lion roared against him. “And the SPIRIT of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he [Samson] rent [tore] him as he would have rent a kid.” He didn’t tell his father or his mother what he had done. “And he went down, and talked with the woman; and she pleased Samson well” (Judges 14:5-7).

On his way back to the woman, Samson turned aside to see the carcass of the lion that he had killed, and he saw a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass. So he took some, and ate some, and gave some to his father and mother, who also ate it. He didn’t tell them that he had taken it out of the lion’s carcass, because the cleanliness laws said it was an unclean animal and you could not eat anything from it.9

So Samson made a feast, which was a custom of the young men. And the young men brought thirty companions. Samson gave them a riddle, and told them if they could solve it within seven days of the feast, he would “give (them) thirty sheets and thirty changes of clothing.” But Samson told them, “if ye cannot declare it unto me, then shall ye give me thirty sheets and thirty change of garments.” They told him, “Put forth thy riddle, that we may hear it. And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat [food], and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days expound the riddle. And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they said unto Samson’s wife, Entice thy husband, that he may declare unto us the riddle, lest we burn thee and thy father’s house with fire: have you called is to take what we have [what is ours]? is it not so?” (Judges 14:8-15).

The young men in this story are the FBI. Today, according to Desireé Kolbek, they said to her, “Give us accusations against Tony, and we will take it easy on your dad (who recently died of heart failure), your mother, your brothers, and your sister.” The FBI has done this with the other young women who have brought accusations against me, and they have threatened others to bring hundreds of other false accusations against me in the past on the IRS allegations. All of them were false. They made my ex-wife (a princess of Sweden), whose family member was CEO of Volvo automobile company, a multi-billion-dollar company, say I was giving her money. The amount they had her say was forty thousand dollars a month. She had a three-million-dollar mansion and Swiss bank accounts. I never gave her any money. I was barely able to pay the church bills. Every one of the IRS witnesses was forced to lie under oath, as were the witnesses in the present case for which I am imprisoned. They let people out of prison if they would lie about me. Look at our website, and see the testimonies from Jennifer Kolbek, who they would not let testify on my behalf, and many others, key witnesses; John Pew, John Peeler, and Joseph Taliaferro. The Antichrist government wants to destroy Christianity, but they never will. They can destroy our bodies, but not our souls,10 if we stand fast.11

If you want to be in Heaven with the LORD and all of GOD’S children, say this prayer, then study the Bible, and give all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength to GOD:


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).

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).
