GOD IS OUR KING
by Tony Alamo
Judges 17:6 states, “In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” GOD is our KING. HE leads, guides, and directs obedient Christians by HIS HOLY SPIRIT (HIS WORD).1 There is no king that can lead us like our KING GOD does, because they do not send to us the HOLY SPIRIT.2 A human king cannot live within us.3 He cannot lead, guide, or direct us as KING GOD does. A human king does not have the capacity to hear our prayers at all times.4 He is human himself and carnal, not at all supernatural.
The Jews wanted to be like the Gentiles. In other words, they wanted to have a human king over them rather than the ALMIGHTY GOD, who delivered them out of the iron furnace, which is Egypt.5 The human king cannot turn water into blood as KING GOD did in Egypt, or send nine other plagues to Egypt as KING GOD did.6 Nor can they open the Red Sea and by HIS SPIRIT, cause all of Israel to pass through it on dry ground (Exodus 14:13-31). A human king cannot provide food (manna from Heaven) or water from a rock for forty years for over 3 million people, as KING GOD did.7
The request for a human king which the Jews had made after seeing what GOD did for them was infuriating to GOD. HE told them if they were going to have a human king, they had to have a Godly human king, one that would be chosen by KING GOD HIMSELF, one that could be trusted to do what KING GOD told him and the entire nation of Israel to do. HIS instructions for this are found in Deuteronomy 17:15, which says, “Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy GOD shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.” He must be a Jew. It can’t be a Gentile.
A king must not lead his people back into bondage like unto the bondage of Egypt. He cannot lead his people into sin. He must not teach them that they can partake in same-sex marriage and must not condone abortion, which is first degree murder. He must not condone fornication or adultery, or lead people into any false religion. And he will teach the people to be obedient to God and all of HIS commandments.
The instructions from GOD were that the king must be an Israelite, a Jew from one of the twelve tribes of Israel, not an Arab or any other unbelieving Gentile people. This would be a king like future King David, who sought the LORD with his whole heart. So GOD later chose David, but HE also first chose Saul. Saul constantly disobeyed GOD and later attempted to kill David, whom GOD had Samuel anoint to be king.8 So GOD cursed Saul, and Saul couldn’t do anything about it.9 This is because once GOD curses anyone or anything, they are cursed.
Saul never recovered after he sinned, but he sought a witch in a futile attempt to find out what was going to happen to him and Israel. And when the witch attempted to find out what would happen to Saul, Samuel appeared unto her, which frightened her very much because this was a new experience to her. The spirit of Samuel told her that Saul and his sons would die in battle the next day (1 Samuel 28:6-25). That very next day, Saul and his sons were killed, just as the spirit of Samuel had stated (1 Samuel 31:1-6).
This tells us that we cannot ignore GOD’S commandments, one of which is to never seek soothsayers or people with familiar spirits, and of course never disobey GOD.10 No matter what HE says, do it! A third states we are never to have an ungodly king or leader ruling over us! An ungodly person is one that doesn’t believe if you disobey GOD, it is sin, because he that sinneth is of the devil. First John 3:8 says, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning [from when he told Eve that GOD was a liar and he was the truth]. For this purpose the SON of GOD was manifested, that HE might destroy the works of the devil.”
The world government has taken over the auto industry, the monetary system, and all government into a one-world government, and now they are going after total control over all religions, so that Catholic government religion will be the only religion approved by Satan, and they will call themselves Christians.11 They are the exact opposite of Christians and must be totally rejected. If you don’t reject it, you will have committed the worst sin in the world, which is blasphemy of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 If you fear Satan rather than GOD, you will do what Satan wants you to do. But if you fear GOD, you will do what GOD wants you to do.13 Believe God and live!
None of the Presidents of the United States were GOD’S choice to be our king, were Godly men, and for that matter, no other world leaders were Godly men. We see this today, where the world leaders make it a sin to do GOD’S will, and they make all those who speak out against sin and all evil to be sinners. How can anyone who condones lying, homosexuality, abortion, homicide, and all the other sins that the hierarchy of the world commits and approves today be of GOD, and how can we allow such people as these to rule over us?
The poor people say that they want to vote for Obama because he gives them food, food stamps, and other special benefits. Will you sell your soul for food or other benefits, as did Esau, who lost his birthright for a bowl of pottage (soup)?14 Why do you not instead serve GOD? Come to our church. We will feed you and give you a place to live if you really serve KING GOD and are not hypocritical about it.
Again, Judges 17:6 states, “In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” The situation is the same today in our present time. There is no king that is of GOD reigning in the world today. People are doing what is right in their own eyes. They won’t do what GOD commands. They’re all wrapped up in false religions, in music, food, booze, drugs, sex, and money. What will self-willed people do when they stand before GOD on Judgment Day?15 You know there is a day of reckoning, don’t you? What a crude awakening it will be for billions of people when they find out how stupid the things were that they sold their souls for!16
“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. Blessed are they that keep HIS testimonies, and that seek HIM with the whole heart. They also do no iniquity: they walk in HIS ways. THOU hast commanded us to keep THY precepts diligently” (Psalms 119:1-4).
Precepts are the rule of moral conduct. It is not a precept of GOD to not honor marriage. It is not a precept of GOD to dishonor Godly men and women by attacking them because they keep GOD’S precepts. It is not a Godly precept to be fearful and unbelieving. Believing in GOD means to do what HE commands, those who will, who have never abandoned GOD’S ways.
Revelation 21:8 says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
The Psalmist David stated, ”O that my ways were directed to keep THY statutes [GOD’S commandments]! Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto ALL THY commandments” (Psalms 119:5-6).
We are at the end of time, and it’s time for you to make the most important decision of your entire life. It is the decision of where your soul will spend eternity, Heaven or Hell.17 If you want to be in Heaven, you must be born again of GOD’S SPIRIT, and then keep the commandments to the end.18 Start out now by first saying this prayer. Then be baptized, fully submerged in water in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT. Then study HIS WORD and do what it says.
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
