If you wish to understand the things GOD says, you need to develop an understanding and receiving mindset. Humility comes first.1 We all must realize that if we do not seek, we will not find,2 unless GOD gives us a special revelation of HIS existence, HIS POWER, His knowledge, and His ability to do whatever HE will, as HE has done for me and for others throughout history.

I didn’t believe GOD existed or knew anything about me. What reason would there be for HIM to bother with me? However, HE did care about me, and after forty-seven years in this knock-down, drag-out ministry, HE still does!

I was a know-it-all, know-nothing until that day in 1964 when GOD proved to me that I knew nothing of any importance. As I recall, I was in total darkness, as GOD’S WORD says we all are (Ephesians 2:11-12).3

GOD is JESUS’S FATHER.4 Again, the FATHER of JESUS, the man, is GOD, and GOD, the SPIRIT, is living in HIS human body just as HE is in HIS body, the Church.5 JESUS is GOD-MAN. Why is this so hard for us to receive and believe? It is because we are merely humans without GOD in us until we become saved, and we are lost!6 That is our condition until we become born again of the SPIRIT.

JESUS told the devil, and I tell the devil and everyone too, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every WORD that proceeds out of the mouth of GOD” (Matthew 4:4). We live eternally either in Heaven or Hell, but when the dawn comes, we begin believing in CHRIST, which has nothing to do with worldly education. Human education has nothing to do with eternal education, eternal life, and this is the truth.

GOD esteems HIS WORD to be higher than HIS name (Psalm 138:2). One reason for this is that “All things were made by HIM [THE WORD]; and without HIM was not any thing made that was made. In HIM [GOD’S WORD] was life; and the life [which is CHRIST, the GOD-MAN] was the light of men” (John 1:3-5).

JESUS said, “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the FATHER, but by ME” (John 14:6). This means that JESUS is the only truth. All other ways are lies. I say again, we are all darkness without the TRUE knowledge of the LIGHT, CHRIST, THE WORD, the only way to Heaven. The point that I want to make is clearly stated in verse five of John, chapter 1: “And the light [CHRIST] shineth in darkness [in the dark recesses of our carnal, victimized minds]; and the darkness comprehended it not [our satanically darkened carnal minds didn’t understand it].”

JESUS is the LIGHT, the PRINCE of LIGHT. The devil, or Satan, is the prince of darkness (Ephesians 2:2, 6:12). The devil hates the WORD of GOD and those who preach and teach it. The powers of the devil, the powers of darkness, want to see you in Hell and the Lake of Fire with him for eternity, screaming your head off with the devil and all deceived people. The lost people of this world have wasted their lives on a lot of vain projects instead of seeking the LORD GOD through HIS WORD. There isn’t anything that you are doing which will do you any good, or will be of any value at the end of your life, when you die. It seems overly simple, doesn’t it? All we have to do is study the WORD, and do what it says.7 People are in darkness.8 They think themselves to be smart, and they are not! They are in darkness! Why do they not believe GOD who created them and everything that is?

I was groping in the dark, feeling that nothing was worth living for, when the WORD of GOD supernaturally came to me and I saw the light. I wasn’t alive until then.9 GOD by HIS WORD, which also is HIS SPIRIT, has led me these forty-seven years.

The Pharisees said to JESUS, “For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. [YOU, a man, say YOU are the SON of GOD, and are trying to make YOURSELF GOD] (John 10:33). “Say you of HIM, whom the FATHER has sanctified, and sent into the world, THOU blasphemest; because I said, I am the SON of GOD? If I do not the works of MY FATHER, believe ME not. But if I do, though ye believe not ME, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the FATHER is in ME, and I in HIM” (John 10:36-38).

As we see all the fulfillment of prophecy, we may know this as well! It’s not going to get any better. There are several places in the world where it hasn’t rained for over a year. JESUS said there would be famines, starvation, sickness, and disease of every kind. Men’s hearts will fail them. There will be many wars, earthquakes, murders, false teachings, and corruptions of all kind.10 JESUS is coming back to earth, and soon!11 You will live to see the great slaughter, the great fire! “Prepare to meet THY GOD” (Amos 4:12). Start out 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

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 your cross daily and follow JESUS for the purpose of mortifying your flesh, 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 with Christ on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for GOD in CHRIST on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the WORD of GOD, submit yourselves one to another, 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 bless and reward you abundantly.

Yours in the wonderful name of JESUS,
Pastor Tony Alamo
