How You Can Be Fully Resurrected In the LORD and Know for Certain That You Are Saved

by Tony Alamo

How can you be fully resurrected in the LORD and know for certain that you are saved, redeemed, born again of the SPIRIT of GOD? The first step is to receive the LORD JESUS CHRIST as your personal Savior. This will not happen until you become exceedingly fearful of the LORD. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10), and “The fear of the LORD, that is wisdom” (Job 28:28). The next step is to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT. When we are baptized, we are being baptized into CHRIST’S death, and we are being baptized into HIS blood by faith. Then you will gladly give up your old, former, sinful life, which was without any concern for what GOD has commanded HIS saved ones to do and say. First John 2:6 says, “He that saith he abideth in HIM ought himself also so to walk, even as HE [JESUS] walked.”

The Bible never tells us to do anything unless it is possible to do it.1 There is a way to walk as JESUS walked, and I will tell you how easy it is to do this. We must walk as HE walked if we are to be HIS body that HE walks in.2

Again, the first step is to be mortified, baptized into HIS death.3 JESUS was in this world, but HE was not a part of it.4 So also are we to be in this world, but not be a part of it.5 WE are separated from sinners, which means we are dead to sin, dead from sinning. We are mortified if we have been baptized into the LORD’S death, and after we are baptized into HIS death, we are resurrected unto the new Spiritual life to be a member of CHRIST’S body. If we are dead to sin, then we are mortified. Romans 8:13 states, “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die [spend eternity in Hell]: but if ye through the SPIRIT do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live [spend eternity in the kingdom of Heaven].”

First John 2:14-17 says, “I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known HIM that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the WORD of GOD abideth in you, and ye have overcome [conquered] the wicked one. [JESUS said, ‘It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.’6] Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the FATHER is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh [men and boys lusting after women and girls, men lusting after men for a homosexual experience, women lusting after women for a lesbian experience, and humans lusting after animals. How gross!], and the lust of the eyes [pornography, even child pornography, or looking upon anything of the world that gratifies the lust of the eyes], and the pride of life [self achievement in the fields of labor, sports, art, music, and other things that cannot prosper a person when they reach the Judgment Bar of GOD], is not of the FATHER, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of GOD abideth for ever.”

Christianity is not a pretending-type of life. JESUS never pretended to reprove and rebuke the scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees, HE really rebuked and reproved them.7 Nor did HE pretend to be nailed to the cross and shed HIS blood and die for our salvation,8 but for sure HE went through all this.9 There was no political correctness with JESUS, and no compromising with JESUS. HE was alive in the SPIRIT and dead to the world, mortified. Again, HE didn’t pretend to be crucified, to die so that our sins could be washed away from our soul. HE really did let mere men crucify HIM, and HE really did die, was buried, rose from the dead, and is alive forevermore.10 None of what JESUS did was done in pretence. People really did spit in HIS face.11 How would you like it if a bunch of bad-breathed people spit in your face? Would you like that? And would you put up with such a thing if you were GOD, who had come into this world in the flesh? No, I don’t believe that you would do it. But JESUS did. Do now what JESUS commands you to do, because HE commands men not to marry men, and women not to marry women.12 However, you perverts do it.

HE tells you not to commit adultery,13 but you do it, the same as pigs do it. HE says for you not to murder,14 but you let your children go to public schools that teach them how to fornicate, and when they get pregnant, teach them to commit murder by abortion. You think it is all right because the wicked government tells you that it is okay. Have you not heard that the world government today is the antichrist,15 and that you shouldn’t follow their advice? But you should follow the advice, the commandments of GOD, who is the creator of yourselves. On Judgment Day, do you think that the government will be the one to judge you? No, it will not be the world government that judges you, it will be the creator of the world.16 HE warns you in advance of what HIS judgment will be, by HIS WORD (John 12:48). This is why you should really read and study HIS WORD, and believe it, because it is the truth.17 It is impossible for GOD to lie. Hebrews 6:18 says, “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for GOD to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.” That is why all that is in the world are lusts. We must die to the flesh.18 We must be mortified if we want to go to Heaven, if we want to stay out of Hell and the Lake of Fire.19 Again, GOD is not kidding around. HE is not pretending. HE is not a kidder.20 When GOD says something, you can take it to the bank, you must believe it, or spend eternity in Hell and the Lake of Fire, which is not a pretense.

When I was a young boy living in Helena, Montana, a friend of mine, who was a couple of years older than me, saved his two sisters in a fire at their home in a poor area of Helena. The sisters were not burnt, but he was burnt all over his body. He had to have skin grafts on his face, hands, and chest. The skin that they grafted on him was from the lower part of his body. After he had rescued his two sisters, he passed out, fainted, from the pain. I was ten years old, and he was around twelve or thirteen. But in Hell and the Lake of Fire you cannot pass out, you cannot faint no matter how bad the pain is. You will want to end it all, but it will never end.21 You will want one drop of water, but you will know that you will never have one drop of water, and that you will never rest.22 For your own sake, and for GOD’S sake, give it up. Be baptized into CHRIST’S death, forsake, and shun this present world and all of the lusts thereof that you may live forever in Heaven. Heaven is a place, and it is real, because GOD says it is real. And Hell and the Lake of Fire is real too. Did you know that you can be the one to actually choose which place you will go? Remember, it is for eternity! You have to make up your mind whether you want to or not, because if you say, “I don’t want to make up my mind right now,” well, in reality, you have made up your mind. Do you know why I say that? It is because neither you nor I know if we are going to live for another minute or not.23

I have witnessed hundreds of thousands of people being saved in the church, and I have seen thousands of them fall away from the LORD. This is how I know that the preachers who say that you can never fall away from the LORD are liars. I know they were really saved and filled with the HOLY SPIRIT. What I am saying is also very scriptural.24 And again, I actually saw it happen.

Jude 5-6, warning us all, states “I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the LORD, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, HE hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” These verses show that GOD’S chosen people, which HE delivered out of Egypt, and one third of the angels in Heaven actually chose to leave their first estate. The Hebrews were destroyed, and the angels are chained into everlasting darkness, because they chose to sin after they were delivered.

Hebrews 6:4-6 says, “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the Heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the HOLY SPIRIT, And have tasted the good WORD of GOD, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the SON of GOD afresh, and put HIM to an open shame.”

This is why we must die out to the flesh, be baptized into CHRIST’S death, and forsake the world and its lusts if we want to spend eternity in Heaven and stay out of the burning Lake of Fire.

Being mortified means: “to subdue, self-denial, fasting, etc. to humiliate, and death”. This is the better part of how you can be mortified and fully resurrected in the LORD, then know for certainty that you are saved, redeemed, and born again of the SPIRIT of GOD. Again, the first part of this process is to receive the LORD JESUS CHRIST as your personal Savior. Then be baptized into HIS death. Like JESUS, we are in this world, but we can have no part of it (John 17:16). We were carnal, sinners, filled with lust, but now we know that we must be Spiritual.25 Start your Spiritual life out by saying this prayer, then be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, the SON, and the HOLY SPIRIT (Matthew 28:19-20). Then study the WORD and do what it says, and you shall not be condemned.

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
