Healed After 38 Years
by Tony Alamo
The WORD of GOD is one of the names of JESUS in Heaven and on earth. Also HE is the fullness of the GODHEAD bodily, which is also the SPIRIT of GOD, so in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament, when GOD speaks, HE is to be obeyed if one expects to enter Heaven at the end of their temporal life. Only the obedient survive. 1 King Saul disobeyed GOD’S command and lost his soul. To disobey the WORD of GOD, which is GOD, is the same as the sin of witchcraft. “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft [the churches are full of rebellious witches], and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the WORD of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king” (1 Samuel 15:23). Sacrifices were to be sacrificed, but sacrifices are an abomination if GOD tells you to not sacrifice, but destroy the abomination as GOD told King Saul.2 Samuel the prophet of GOD was commanded by GOD to tell Saul, “Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice and to hearken than the fat of rams” (1 Samuel 15:22). GOD took away Saul’s rule of Israel and gave it to David. 3
The SPIRIT of GOD spoke to Mary, she believed HIS message that she (as a virgin) would conceive a SON by the HOLY SPIRIT (Luke 1:26-38). GOD would be alive in HIM. HE would be GOD-MAN, GOD in the flesh (John 1:1, 14), yet with all the problems of man, and much more, because HE is also the SON of MAN. HE was like us in every way, yet without sin.4
JESUS was IMMANUEL, GOD with us!5 “Therefore the LORD HIMSELF shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a SON, and shall call his name IMMANUEL. Butter and honey shall HE eat, that HE may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good” (Isaiah 7:14-15). “For unto us a child is born, unto us a SON is given: and the government shall be upon HIS shoulder: and HIS name shall be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE” (Isaiah 9:6).
So JESUS was telling his accusers, who paid no attention to Him, that a man was healed by HIM on the Sabbath day (I would have automatically believed HIM to be who HE said HE was because this man did have this sickness thirty-eight years, and all at once he was healed on the Sabbath day). And JESUS, IMMANUEL, GOD in HIM and GOD with us, said unto him, “Will you be made whole?” JESUS said this unto him on the Sabbath because the SPIRIT of GOD living in HIM, the same SPIRIT that begat HIM, told HIM to say, “Will you be made whole?” (John 5:6). “The impotent man answered HIM, SIR, I have no man, when the water [of the healing pool] is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus by the SPIRIT of GOD HIMSELF living in HIM said unto the man, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk” (John 5:7-8). When the CREATOR, DICTATOR, speaks, all creation must obey. Sickness, disease, all curses, infirmities of all kinds, the devil, all evil spirits, the sun, the moon, the stars, the wind, the waves, you and me—everything—must obey GOD or be destroyed forever.6
“And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: [and it was on the Sabbath day]. The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for you to carry your bed. He answered them, HE that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up your bed, and walk. Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? And he that was healed didn’t know who it was [it was GOD, but tell that to these social workers]: for JESUS had conveyed HIMSELF away, a multitude being in that place” (John 5:9-13). Just remember always in those days, though HE is GOD, HE also is man and HIS time to die was not yet.
Later, JESUS found the man “in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more [JESUS is not like those who say we can still sin and still go to Heaven! NO! HE SAYS SIN NO MORE, not even one speck of sin, or you will not enter into Heaven, but you will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire7], SIN NO MORE lest a worse thing come unto thee” (John 5:14). What would that be? I know! In a vision, I saw Hell full of a multitude of shocked people, a very terror-stricken, full-of-dread people!
“The man departed, and told the Jews that it was JESUS which had made him whole. And therefore did the Jews persecute JESUS, and sought to slay HIM, because He had done these things on the Sabbath day. But JESUS answered them, MY FATHER WORKS [ON THE SABBATH], AND [WHEN HE WORKS] I WORK [FOR HE IS IN MY HUMAN BODY and tells ME what to do]. Therefore the Jews sought the more to murder HIM, because HE not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that GOD was HIS FATHER, making HIMSELF equal with GOD.
“Then answered JESUS and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The SON [the human part of ME] can do nothing of HIMSELF, but what HE sees the FATHER do: for what things soever HE does, these also does the SON likewise. For the FATHER LOVES THE SON, and HE shows ME all things that HE HIMSELF does: and HE will show HIM greater works than these, that you may marvel.
“For as the FATHER raises up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the SON quickeneth whom HE will. For the FATHER judgeth no man, but has committed all judgment unto the SON.” JESUS is the WORD of GOD made flesh (John 1:1, 14), and everyone and everything shall be judged by the WORD of GOD, THE BIBLE.8 If you read the Bible you can see clearly how you will be judged on the Day of Judgment! “That all men should honour the SON, even as they honour the FATHER. He that honoureth not the SON honoureth not the FATHER which hath sent HIM. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth MY WORD [receives it], and believes on HIM that sent ME, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life…they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil [walked not in the SPIRIT of GOD within], unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:15-24, 29).
Repent of your sins once and for all by saying this prayer, then be baptized, fully submerged in water, study HIS WORD, and be faithful to it.
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
