“I WILL GIVE EVERY ONE OF YOU ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS” (REVELATION 2:23)
by Tony Alamo
The seven churches mentioned in the last book of the Bible (Revelation) were in Turkey. Each one of these seven churches have similar or almost the same problems as the true churches of GOD today, so these statements of our LORD JESUS are concerning the final warnings from GOD to all of today’s churches.
Revelation 2:18-20 says, “And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira [symbolic of your church] write; [John] These things says the SON of GOD, who has HIS eyes like unto a flame of fire, and HIS feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce MY servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”
In the Old Testament, Jezebel, King Ahab’s wife, the queen, murdered the prophets (1 Kings 18:4, 13). She sought to murder Elijah, one of the great prophets of GOD, was full of false doctrine, and practiced idolatry of all kinds.1 She had four hundred false prophets which Elijah killed.2 This is why she hunted Elijah.3 The very same devils which lived in her and her false prophets, are today living in the hierarchy of the Roman cult, the Vatican and her associates. JESUS calls her Jezebel, she who has murdered millions of the saints, Jews, and others, and continues to murder the prophets.4
In Revelation 2, verses 21-24, JESUS says, “And I gave her space to repent of her fornication [her abominable sins, her false doctrines, her sacrilege]; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her [this is the same as her false doctrines, as well as murders and her persecutions, and incarceration and robbery of the saints’ properties] into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I [JESUS] will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am HE which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I [JESUS] will put upon you none other burden.”
There are many in that “church” that don’t know the truth, the depths of Satan’s false church. This is why THE LORD commands those people, who are deceived saints, to “Come out of her, MY people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4).
“But that which you have already [your saved souls] hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth MY works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received [the strong vessels] of MY FATHER. And I [JESUS] will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the SPIRIT saith unto the churches” (Revelation 2:25-29).
Do you hear SPIRITUALLY?5 If you do, then say 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
