WHY AREN’T YOU BLESSED?
by Tony Alamo
People in the world, who also are the people of false religions, can’t understand why they are cursed. They can’t understand why GOD is not blessing them, or why GOD refuses to answer their prayers. The devil has sold them a bill of goods, telling them that the Bible has changed throughout the years.1 This is why those that believe what the devil is saying will never be blessed.
GOD has not changed.2 HE is “the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). GOD stated that HE would deliver the Jews from seven mightier nations than themselves, but they would have to keep all of HIS commandments (Deuteronomy 7:1-4).3 One of HIS commandments is that you shall make no promises with any of the other nations, or make any marriages with them (Deuteronomy 7:2-3). You may ask why. Christians are not to marry non-Christians! Believers are not to marry unbelievers. Second Corinthians 6:14-17 states, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath CHRIST with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of GOD with idols? for ye are the temple of the living GOD; as GOD hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their GOD, and they shall be MY people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
As you see, the rule is the same in the New Testament as it was in the Old! In Matthew 5:17, JESUS said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” No one can fulfill the law unless the HOLY SPIRIT is in them.4 If a person doesn’t have the HOLY SPIRIT living and staying in them, it is impossible for them to keep the Law. Therefore, it is impossible for them to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.5 But if a person becomes born again of the SPIRIT, if the SPIRIT of GOD is constantly living in them, they are more than able to keep the Law.6 Not by power, and not by the might of a mighty army, but by MY SPIRIT, saith the LORD (Zechariah 4:6).
All Godly things are accomplished by GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT. As a matter of fact, JESUS makes the Law more intense in the New Testament (the Beatitudes). HE says in Matthew 5:28, ”…whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” And if you hate your brother without a cause, you have also committed murder in your heart (Matthew 5:21-22). This is stronger than the Law in the Old Testament, so don’t say that the New Testament has done away with the Law. If you say this, you are a liar.
Today the world government is attempting to homogenize religions, or in other words, to make one religion out of false religions. The problem is that they throw the WORD of GOD in with all of that riffraff. They disguise their motive by saying they are doing this to homogenize the races, that is, to make blacks, whites, Orientals, and all other races as one through interracial marriages. Again, this is not the case. They are doing it to eliminate Christianity.
Galatians 3:27-29 states, “For as many of you as have been baptized into CHRIST have put on CHRIST. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in CHRIST JESUS. And if ye be CHRIST’S, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
So a Christian is able to marry a Christian, but a Christian cannot marry a Catholic. This is because Catholicism is a religion, and Christianity is salvation. Religion is of the devil, but salvation is of the LORD.7
Moses had three wives, and Moses was the lawgiver.8 One of his wives was an Ethiopian, a black lady. Miriam, Moses’ sister, came down with leprosy because she protested against Moses’ Ethiopian wife (Numbers 12:1-15). GOD healed her of her leprosy after she repented.
Deuteronomy 7:9-20 states, “Know therefore that the LORD thy GOD, HE is GOD, the faithful GOD, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love HIM and keep HIS commandments to a thousand generations; And repayeth them that hate HIM to their face, to destroy them: HE will not be slack to him that hateth HIM, HE will repay him to his face. Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
“Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy GOD shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which HE sware unto thy fathers: And HE will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: HE will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which HE sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee. And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy GOD shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.
“If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them? Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the LORD thy GOD did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt; The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the LORD thy GOD brought thee out: so shall the LORD thy GOD do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid. Moreover the LORD thy GOD will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed.” Deuteronomy 7:21 adds, “Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy GOD is among you, a mighty GOD and terrible.”
Read the Bible so that you can know why things are not good in your life.9 In this way, you will be able to correct yourselves and become blessed with all of GOD’S children. First of all, you must be born again of the SPIRIT (John 3:3-7). Then abide in HIM constantly, as HE abides in you constantly (John 15:4-7). Start becoming a son or a daughter of GOD 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
