MOSES WROTE OF ME
by Tony Alamo
JESUS said, “For had you believed Moses, you would have believed ME: for he wrote of ME. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe MY WORDS?” (John 5:46-47). You might ask where Moses wrote of JESUS. Let’s go to the book of Revelation first to qualify the answer on the writings of Moses.
JESUS says, “I AM ALPHA and OMEGA [in Greek this means the A to Z, the entire alphabet, the everything], the BEGINNING and the ENDING, saith the LORD, which IS, and which WAS, and which IS to come, THE ALMIGHTY” (Revelation 1:8).
Moses wrote of CHRIST many times in the Scriptures so that we could perceive the reality of HIM, to show CHRIST to us as the CREATOR in Genesis and the ANCIENT OF DAYS in Revelation 1:14. HE also shows HIMSELF to John in a vision in Revelation 1:14-15: “HIS head and HIS hairs were white like wool, as white as snow [showing HIMSELF as being from the beginning]; and HIS eyes were as a flame of fire [so powerful that HE sees all and knows all, and to show the sureness of HIS steps]; And HIS feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and HIS voice as the sound of many waters [heard by many in all nations].1”
After the Apostle John saw that JESUS’ “countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength,” John says, “And when I saw HIM, I fell at HIS feet as dead. And HE laid HIS right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; [JESUS again affirms] I AM the FIRST and the LAST [just as Moses said!]: I AM HE that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I AM alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of Hell and of death” (Revelation 1:17-18).
JESUS says many times that HE is the BEGINNING. John 1:1-3 states, “In the BEGINNING was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD. The same was in the BEGINNING with GOD. All things were made by HIM [JESUS, the WORD]; and without HIM [the WORD] was not any thing made that was made. In HIM [the WORD of GOD] was LIFE; and the LIFE was the LIGHT of men. And the LIGHT shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” (John 1:1-5).
“HE [the BEGINNING, the WORD, GOD] was in the world, and the world was made by HIM, and the world knew HIM not. HE came unto HIS own [the Jews], and HIS own received HIM not. But as many as received HIM, to them gave HE power to become the SONS of GOD, even to them that believe on HIS name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of GOD. And the WORD was made flesh [and GOD, the WORD, became a GOD-man], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld HIS glory, the glory of the only begotten of the FATHER,) full of POWER and TRUTH” (John 1:10-14).
Moses began writing about JESUS in Genesis 1:1. JESUS the WORD is also in the BEGINNING, and the WORD says, “In the BEGINNING GOD [JESUS] created the Heaven and the earth.” We also see the third part of the GODHEAD, which is “the SPIRIT of GOD moved upon the face of the waters. And GOD [the WORD] said, Let there be LIGHT: and [the WORD, GOD went forth and immediately] there was LIGHT” (Genesis 1:2b-3). And GOD the WORD spoke the rest of creation into existence.
After JESUS THE WORD created everything except mankind, “GOD [ELOHIM, THE PLURAL TRIUNE GOD, THE FATHER, THE WORD, which is THE SON, and THE HOLY SPIRIT] said, Let US make man in OUR IMAGE, after OUR likeness” (Genesis 1:26). GOD the FATHER is a SPIRIT. The HOLY SPIRIT is, of course, a SPIRIT. We cannot see the SPIRIT of GOD. The only part of GOD’S TRI-PART BEING that has an image we can see is JESUS, who was seen several times in the Old Testament. Adam saw the pre-incarnate CHRIST,2 as did Abraham.3 Nebuchadnezzar saw JESUS in the fiery furnace with the three Hebrew children.4 Isaiah,5 Jeremiah,6 and many others, including Moses, and recently, me, have seen CHRIST.7
So the WORD, JESUS, with the FATHER and the HOLY SPIRIT, ELOHIM, the PLURAL TRIUNE ONE GOD, created us in the IMAGE and likeness of CHRIST, the only ONE of the GODHEAD who has an image that HE made us in. HE said, “And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So GOD created man in HIS own image, in the image of GOD [which is CHRIST] created HE him; male and female created HE them. And [CHRIST] blessed them, and [CHRIST] said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:26-28).
“And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD GOD had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. And the LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD GOD planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom HE had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD GOD to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:5-9). THE TREE OF LIFE IS SYMBOLIC OF JESUS.
After Eve and Adam had eaten from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which JESUS forbade them to do lest they die. Their eyes were open, and they knew they were naked (Genesis 3:6-7). “And they heard the voice of THE LORD GOD [JESUS] walking in the garden in the cool of the day.” After Adam and Eve had sinned by disobeying JESUS, the LORD GOD, The WORD, the Adamic sin would now be in all flesh. Then GOD instituted animal sacrifices, which were symbolic of CHRIST JESUS, the WORD, who would come to the world in the flesh and dwell among us (John 1:14). The only way that obedient people can be saved from an eternity in the Lake of Fire is if a sinless GOD came into the world to pay the penalty for the sins everyone committed. No person but CHRIST the GOD-man could do this (Hebrews 10:4-14).
The virgin Mary gave birth to a human man-child with the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD in HIM. HE was man on the exterior, and the very essence of GOD inside. The PROPHET ISAIAH prophesied, “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a SON, and shall call HIS name Immanuel [GOD with us8]” (Isaiah 7:14).
”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). HIS name is JESUS, the WORD of GOD, made flesh to have genuine human blood without sin to take away the sin of the world.9
GOD honored Abel’s blood lamb sacrifice because it pointed to the future death of CHRIST, the WORD, who would die for the sins of the world. Before GOD would deliver the children of Israel from Egypt, every household had to kill a young lamb without blemish and place its blood on the two door posts and on the lintel (the sign of the cross which pointed to the LAMB of GOD dying in the future for the sins of the world) (Exodus 12:21-23). GOD the WORD was made flesh (John 1:1, 14). There is no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood (Hebrews 9:22). Moses wrote of JESUS, who as GOD is the image and likeness of GOD (Genesis 1:26).
Through the veil, which is HIS flesh, the entire law of burnt animal sacrifices ended when JESUS, the WORD of GOD, died on the cross. When JESUS gave up HIS SPIRIT, the veil of the temple was ripped in two, showing that every born-again Christian can go into the HOLY OF HOLIES because you are in CHRIST and HE is in you (Mark 15:38). The veil is HIS flesh, pierced for us. We enter HIS pierce, HIS death, and we can live and sit with HIM in Heavenly places (Ephesians 2:4-6). Before this, only Moses could go up to the mountain, and only the Jewish High Priests were able to go into the most HOLY PLACE. Now we can all go up to the throne of power BOLDLY! (Hebrews 4:14-16). JESUS, OUR LORD and OUR GOD, made us priests and kings (Revelation 1:5-6, 5:10). All this was made possible by JESUS living a sinless life, dying, resurrecting, then ascending into Heaven.10
JESUS said, “All power is given unto ME in Heaven and earth” (Matthew 28:18). All power in Heaven and Earth Belongs to ME, says CHRIST the LORD, who is GOD ALMIGHTY, IMMANUEL, GOD WITH US. HE with HIS FATHER will enter into you by the HOLY SPIRIT after you 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,
