WE ARE NOT MONKEYS OR BABOONS
by Tony Alamo
I CRINGE when I hear the very IGNORANT people say, “We are monkeys. We are nothing more than animals.” GOD makes a great distinction between humans and beasts. The heathen, the idol worshippers, worship cows, baboons, and all other creatures. GOD made man in HIS IMAGE, not the image of a monkey or any other animal.1 I’m legally blind, but I can vividly see the difference between me and a monkey. “Let GOD be TRUE, but every man a liar!” (Romans 3:4).
In Jeremiah 31:27, the living ALMIGHTY GOD says, as HE tells of the time HE will restore the Jews back to Israel, “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will sow [plant] the house of Israel and the house of Judah with THE SEED OF MAN, and with THE SEED OF BEAST [two different things].”
GOD doesn’t make covenants with monkeys or other animals. “Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers [the Jews] in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which MY covenant they brake, although I was an HUSBAND unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the COVENANT that I will make with the house of ISRAEL [NOT monkeys, NOT any other kind of animal, but with the MEN of ISRAEL and the WOMEN]; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put MY LAW in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their GOD, and they shall be MY people [NOT monkeys or any other animal]” (Jeremiah 31:32-33).
“And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities thereof together, husbandmen [farmers, shepherds—men!], and they that go forth with flocks [animals]” (Jeremiah 31:24).
In the creation of everything, “GOD said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth [such as monkeys] after his kind: and it was so. And GOD made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and GOD saw that it was good.
“And GOD said, LET US [FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT] make MAN [MAN—NOT MONKEY] IN OUR IMAGE, AFTER OUR LIKENESS; and let them [not monkeys] have dominion over the fish of the sea [and we do], and over the fowl of the air [and we do], and over the cattle [and we do], and over all the earth [and we do], and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth [and we do have dominion over all these]. So GOD [with HIS spoken WORD] created MAN IN HIS OWN image, in the image of GOD [not monkey or any other animal] created HE him; male and female created HE them. And GOD blessed them, and GOD 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 moves upon the earth [and we do]. And GOD said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat [food]. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat [food]: and it was so. And GOD saw everything that HE had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day” (Genesis 1:24-31).
Does all this sound corny to you? Well, if it does, you’re the cornball. Nothing has changed; what GOD has made is still the same.2 HIS WORD is still the same.3 HE still says you MUST be BORN TWICE. The first is a natural birth, and the second birth is SPIRITUAL.4 GOD’S SPIRIT must be in you before you die, or you will never be in HEAVEN.5 YOU MUST be BORN AGAIN of the SPIRIT, GOD’S SOUL, HIS LIFE!6 JESUS said so, and HE is the WORD of GOD (John 1:1, 14). So pray to HIM NOW, THIS PRAYER so you may be saved:
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
