WORK

by Tony Alamo

I come to you in the name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who is HIS WORD of GOD, for the purpose of clearing up matters pertaining unto GOD’S WORD, which is GOD (John 1:1).1 We, as humans, are not able to save ourselves from the eternal torments of Hell, but after we have been delivered from such a horrible fate, we become yoked together in labor with the LORD to follow HIM and to work with HIM the works of GOD.2 This is very important, because we are to obey GOD’S WORD, the LORD, if we are to escape Hell and the Lake of Fire.3

I will list some of the marching orders which are given to us by JESUS which are recorded in the BIBLE so we may continue in the WORD of GOD. Before JESUS ascended into HEAVEN, he said, "ALL power is given unto me in Heaven and in earth.” The final marching orders of JESUS to us all before HE ascended into HEAVEN are Matthew 28. In verse 19, HE commanded the disciples, all disciples, to go to work. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:18-20). Here JESUS is telling us to work, but Jezebel, the devil’s cults say we are not to work. Those are false prophets. This fallacy is why there is so much sin and corruption in the world for so many years.

Why do the world population believe the weak and beggarly spirit of the devil and Satan when JESUS, who has been given all power in HEAVEN and on earth, tells us to work—to teach, preach, baptize, and observe ALL of HIS commandments.4 If you will do this, “observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you [work]…lo, I [JESUS] am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20.) But if you are fearful of persecution, death, or prison, JESUS reminds us throughout the gospels, “Whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for MY sake shall find it” (Matthew 16:25). Revelation 1:3 says, “Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, AND KEEP THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN THEREIN: for the time is at hand.”

JESUS warns one of the seven churches which are spoken of in Revelation chapter 2, the church at Ephesus, that HE knows all of the good works they have done, and their labor, and their patience, and how they can’t bear those which are evil: and knows they have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars: And have borne, and had patience, and for JESUS’S name's sake have LABORED (WORKED), and have not fainted. Yet JESUS has something against them, because they have lost their first love (of JESUS, and have no zealous works for CHRIST). JESUS says, “Remember from whence thou art FALLEN [JESUS says this church has FALLEN away from HIM, from GOD!! The false prophets say you can’t fall away, but JESUS says you can and are fallen away!5 HE tells us all to] repent, and do the first WORKS [like the Apostles and new converts in the book of Acts]; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick [church] out of his place, except thou repent” (Revelation 2:2-5).

James 2:14 says, “What does it profit, my brethren, though a man say he has faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one GOD; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?...Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only…For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” (James 2:14-20, 24, 26).

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the AMEN, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:14-17). You are in this condition because you are not following the LORD’S commandments and/or the church rules from the book of Acts. You are not walking in the HOLY SPIRIT, and if you don’t repent (report back in), I will spit you out of MY mouth (MY body) (Revelation 3:16). If everyone that calls himself a Christian would get busy, as JESUS commands, there would be a world-wide revival. Satan is a defeated foe (Hebrews 2:14-15).6 But we must continue resisting him, for if we resist him, he will flee from us (James 4:7). Give no place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27).7 Keep oil (the HOLY SPIRIT) in your lamps, which means, keep the HOLY SPIRIT flowing in and through you.8

If you are an inactive Christian, then repent. And if you don’t know the LORD and SAVIOR, then say this prayer and you will be saved if you’re a sinner:

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
