THE DEATH PENALTY
by Tony Alamo
Love is the keeping of GOD’S commandments (1 John 5:3, 2 John 1:6).1 GOD’S vocabulary and the meaning of HIS words are different than the words of those who are not of GOD. Let us look at a few things from GOD’S perspective, HIS point of view, HIS angle, seeing as how HE is the one who will be doing all the judging after we are dead.2 Is being politically correct kind? NO! It is evil, the opposite of GOD’S commandments!
One of GOD’S commandments is, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13).3 If you murder anyone, you must be put to death (Genesis 9:5-6, Numbers 35:16-21, 30-31). “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of GOD made HE man” (Genesis 9:6).To do so, to put a murderer to death, is of GOD, so it is kind, because it will persuade future murderers not to murder man who is in GOD’S image! It also will take the curse off of our land. “Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die. Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death. And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest. So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel” (Numbers 35:30-34).
Is that which the heathen call abortion truly murder?4 Yes! According to GOD’S WORD, HIS commandments, YES! It is very kind for a court of law to put those who abort, those who murder babies, to death! How has the world gotten to the point where mere people believe it to be lawful to murder babies, or anyone? Today, people will put a person to death for being kind. But GOD’S commandment is that if you murder, you must die! Do you think GOD will not send your soul to Hell, then the Lake of Fire for murder? Do you think HE will spare you on the Day of Judgment for what you are doing? Do you believe HE will send you to the Lake of Fire? HE said HE will 5 and it’s impossible for GOD to lie. “Wherein GOD, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of HIS counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 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” (Hebrews 6:17-18).
JESUS said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the LAW, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil [but to do the Law!, to make it stronger, because the LORD by the SPIRIT lives in us now. Now we have the power of CHRIST in us to keep the Law. We can’t be saved by the Law, but by faith.6 But after salvation, we have the power in us to not sin, to hate sin as Job, Noah, and especially JESUS.7]” (Matthew 5:17).
For us to be poor in our own spirit is for us to keep all the commandments of GOD! In Matthew 5:3 JESUS says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of [Heaven].” If you say, “Oh I forgive you for murdering my son, daughter, husband, wife, or whoever,” you are not kind, but are lawless—a breaker of the Law. You are condoning lawlessness and contributing to the corruption in the world as it is today. I can forgive, but the LAW must be kept, or we will be overrun with murderers—and we are today!
“Blessed are they that mourn [those who mourn for the millions of babies murdered, and for the many souls of the women who allowed themselves to partake in the murder of their own children, knowing they will be in the Lake of Fire for eternity for allowing themselves to be deceived, brainwashed (Revelation 12:9)—really brain-dirtied—into thinking there will be no Day of Judgment, no day of reckoning!].”
LOVE IS THE KEEPING OF GOD’S COMMANDMENTS (1 John 5:3, 2 John 1:6). “The abomination that maketh desolate,” desolation is on its way; it is at the door.8 You are a lunatic if you think GOD is going to rapture you out of here!9
“Blessed are they that mourn [because of all the sin in the world]: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek” (Matthew 5:4-5). The meek are those who agree with GOD and keep HIS commandments! To them, whatever GOD says is right and KIND for the babies, the mothers, the butchers, and our land! We forgive them, but the LAW must be kept, or we will have lawlessness—as we do today. GOD will destroy the world.10 HE is already beginning to do just that!
The meek “shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness.” They hunger and thirst to know that which GOD says is RIGHT, LAW, and KIND, “for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful [those who have mercy on unborn babies and on all people, telling them the truth so they may receive everlasting life in Heaven]: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart [those who have purified their hearts by filling their hearts with the pure (unmixed) WORD of GOD]: for they shall see GOD. Blessed are the peacemakers [all of us who lead people to the PRINCE OF PEACE by HIS WORD, the KJV Bible]: for they shall be called the children of GOD” (Matthew 5:5-9). We must have peace with GOD by accepting HIS SON, or we will receive HIS wrath, as many people receive it today, and as many more shall!11
JESUS told us we would be persecuted for preaching, teaching, and explaining what HE says, as well as for doing these things which HE says, because they are kind.12 LOVE IS KIND. “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for MY sake. [JESUS says] Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you” (Matthew 5:10-12).
Love is kind (Luke 6:35). Love is the keeping of GOD’S commandments (1 John 5:3, 2 John 1:6). You must be born again, born of the SPIRIT of GOD, if you will enter Heaven (John 3:3-7). Start now by saying 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
