A Letter from Tony
by Tony Alamo
I (Tony Alamo) received your letter. You asked how I am doing, and, of course, I’m praising the Lord. I feel okay with the exception of these bonds, and I’m not being treated with preference. In prison they treat no one I know of with preference. The question is how are you holding up through all this persecution? I pray that you are steadfast in the Lord.
No amount of persecution is worth losing your soul or Heaven. You say you’re doing okay, but we have to do better than okay; we are to be sitting in Heavenly places with the Lord expecting great victory (Eph. 2:6).
You say you can’t get to church because your car is broken down. Find out how much it costs to fix your car, and I will see if I can arrange something.
You said H.B. was inducted into the Hall of Fame. I never knew H.B. Barnum was inducted into the Hall of Fame. What was he inducted for?
You also asked if I’m able to write back to you. Yes, I am able to write back, and please ask me any questions that you have regarding the Bible or what is happening in the world today. As you know, I have the answers.
You asked me what the names of the twelve gates in Heaven are. There are three gates in the north, three gates in the south, three gates in the east, and three gates in the west. The names of the twelve gates in Heaven are the same as the twelve sons of Israel (which is Jacob), or the twelve tribes of Israel. The names are: (1) Reuben, (2) Simeon, (3) Levi, (4) Issachar, (5) Judah, (6) Gad, (7) Zebulon, (8) Asher, (9) Benjamin, (10) Dan, (11) Naphtali, (12) Joseph (Ezek. 48:31-34, Rev. 21:12).
As you know, I’m in prison for preaching the King James Version of the Bible, which teaches having more than one wife is not condemned by God,1 and the legal age of marriage is puberty.2 Waiting until the age of 18 is okay, but laws that make that age mandatory, the Bible says, are “doctrines of devils” coming from seducing spirits (I Tim. 4:1-3). Seducing spirits are the world government promoting homosexuality and population control. God said, “Be fruitful, and multiply” (Gen. 1:28). The devil says the opposite, forbidding marriage and doing his best to control the growth of the population.
Webster’s Dictionary states the same as the Bible does, that childhood ends at puberty, which normally ends in women between the ages of 9 and 14. When a girl reaches puberty, she’s no longer a child; she’s an adult. Webster’s Dictionary says “puberty” means adult. Why is the secular government prosecuting men for marrying women who have reached puberty, adulthood, and sending them to prison for 50 to 175 years? Because the secular government is following the doctrines of devils! God says so!
Your son Enrique wants to know the meaning of the scripture in Proverbs 9:2, “She [wisdom] hath killed her beasts; she [wisdom] hath mingled her wine.” In order to answer this question, we need to go to the verse before, Proverbs 9:1.
Proverbs 9:1 says, “Wisdom [which is the fear of the Lord3] hath builded her house [the house or the temple of God is us].” “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you [that is, if you are born again of the Spirit, a born-again Christian]?” (I Cor. 3:16). “She [wisdom or the fear of the LORD] hath hewn out her seven pillars [seven pillars of God].”
Seven pillars of God are hewn out when you have the fear or wisdom of God. The seven pillars of God are the seven Spirits of God. The seven Spirits of God are acquired when a person fears the Lord, reaches maturity in the Lord. These seven Spirits are mentioned in Isaiah 11:2, and they are: (1) The Spirit of God, (2) The Wisdom of God, (3) The Understanding of God, (4) The Counsel of God, (5) The Might of God, (6) The Knowledge of God, (7) The Fear of God.
Wisdom, which again, is the fear of God, has killed her beasts. It means the fear of the Lord, when you have it, has put away or murdered all the cares and lusts of the world, which are the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. First John 2:16 says, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
So when you have the fear of the Lord, and have killed all the lust in yourself, you have killed all the beasts.
Also, the one-world government is referred to as the Beast.4 And those that take the Mark of the Beast in their right hand or forehead are guilty of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit of which there is no forgiveness in this world or the world to come (Matt. 12:31-32, Rev. 13:16-18, 14:9-11, 19:20). Anyone taking the Mark of the Beast in their right hand or forehead, which will undoubtedly be a microchip, has taken the Mark of the Beast, which is the mark of the one-world government. Again, when people take the Mark of the Beast, it is blasphemy of the HOLY SPIRIT, and there is no more forgiveness in this world or in the world to come.
“She has mingled her wine” means that when you have the fear of the Lord, you will study the Old and the New Testament and see how they relate to one another. The Old Testament predicts what will happen, and the New Testament shows how all the predictions of the Old Testament were fulfilled. This is called mingling the wine, which is the Word of God. Again, Wisdom is the fear of the Lord. When you fear the Lord, you will thoroughly study the whole Word of God, the Old and the New Testament, which is your spiritual food. The Bible is the table, the Word of Jesus.
In John 16:26, Jesus says, “At that day ye shall ask in My Name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you.” This means Jesus was talking to them while He was still here on earth, so He had to be the One to pray to the Father for them. He was saying that He was going away to be with the Father, so that He could become a “Quickening Spirit,” the “Life-giving Spirit” (I Cor. 15:45). In other words, Jesus became the Holy Spirit or the Comforter, so that He could send Himself into millions of people and live in them all.5 When Jesus, who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily, lives in us and in millions of other people, we no longer have to ask Jesus to pray for us. What Jesus is saying is that now that He is with the Father, the Spirit is living in us, so we ourselves are able to pray to the Father and He will answer our prayers. Through the blood of Jesus we are able to boldly come before the throne of God with our petitions, and whatsoever we ask in the name of Jesus, He will do it (Heb. 10:19).
One of the beasts that you need to kill is not just the one preventing you from coming to church on weekends. You need to become single-minded, focused with tunnel vision. The devil doesn’t want you to come to church seven days a week; this is why your car doesn’t work.
Give my love to everyone when you see them. If you have any further questions, I’ll do my best to answer them for you and Enrique. God bless you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Your Pastor, Tony Alamo
I will be happy to answer any questions you have also. To be saved, the Lord requires you to pray this prayer of repentance:
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 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
