THE WORD OF THE FATHER IS CHRIST
by Tony Alamo
The members of CHRIST’S Body are the members of the congregation.1 We are like the thunder in the mountains (in the nations)! Communion in HIS Body and Blood is Life in HIS SPIRIT. “THE LIFE…IS IN THE BLOOD” (Leviticus 17:11). Also, GOD “Hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in Heavenly places in CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 2:6).
The mother of JESUS was not immaculate, and she was not Catholic. If she had been immaculate, she would not have needed to have GOD as her SAVIOR. She said in Luke 1:47, “And my spirit hath rejoiced in GOD my SAVIOUR.” The Catholics ask, “How could the HOLY SON of GOD (GOD HIMSELF) be conceived and grow in an unholy sinner like Mary, if she were a sinner?” The answer is: the same way JESUS, by the immaculate HOLY SPIRIT, enters all sinners when they repent of their sins and become sons of GOD—JESUS is born in them.2 For us, this is called being born again of the SPIRIT of GOD.3 JESUS said you and everyone else who will enter Heaven must be born again of the HOLY SPIRIT (John 3:3-7). The Apostle Peter and all of the apostles were born-again Christians by the HOLY SPIRIT, and they were not Catholic either!
John 15:1 says GOD the FATHER is the farmer. JESUS said that HE is the Vine, and all who are born of the SPIRIT (not Catholics) are the branches of the Vine and in JESUS (John 15:1-5). After we are attached, united by the HOLY SPIRIT in JESUS, we are no longer sinners, but are SONS of GOD, CHRIST’S BODY, and HE, HIS BODY, NEVER sins cardinal sins.4 We are in the ONE who is without sin, which is totally the opposite of the Catholic cult of homosexuals.5
The SON of GOD, who is the WORD of GOD in Heaven and now also in us, was made flesh in Mary, and in every born-of-the-SPIRIT Christian, since that day that HE overshadowed Mary when she accepted HIM (Luke 1:38). JESUS continues living and working HIS works in us to this day, and HE will continue doing so unto the end, if we let HIM.6
CHRIST in Heaven was, and is, the second part of the GODHEAD, not the SON of GOD, but the WORD who became the only begotten SON of GOD, but HE still is the WORD of GOD.7 As HE entered Mary’s womb by the immaculate HOLY SPIRIT, HE enters our hearts by the same immaculate HOLY SPIRIT, and we also become the sons of GOD, branches in HIM, bearing much fruit, doing HIS will, winning souls, and going about doing good, which is the will of GOD.8
JESUS says in John 6:63, “The WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.” The WORD also says ETERNAL LIFE is in the BLOOD of JESUS (John 3:14-17).9 Remember, the LIFE (eternal LIFE) is in the BLOOD of JESUS, and HIS LIFE and resurrection is in the SPIRIT, or the WORD, which is GOD. So, as JESUS says in John chapter 6, we must eat HIS FLESH and drink HIS BLOOD, or we will have no eternal LIFE (John 6:53). When we drink HIS BLOOD, or LIFE, it simply means we are to drink HIS HOLY SPIRIT, which is the WORD, which again is SPIRIT and LIFE (John 6:63).
“And the Word was made flesh” (John 1:14). This means we must eat HIS flesh and drink HIS BLOOD (which is the WORD) in order to become HIS BODY because eternal LIFE is in HIS BODY, BLOOD, WORD, and SPIRIT.
JESUS also said in John 5:40, “And ye will not come to ME, that ye might have LIFE.” All the people who say we can do nothing to have eternal LIFE are wrong, because we must come unto HIM!10 Otherwise, we have no LIFE. We must come to the cross of JESUS to have our carnal life destroyed and be risen by the SPIRIT from our former dead life. This is a must—to first surrender our dead lives over to GOD in CHRIST that we may be born again of the (HIS) SPIRIT (Romans 12:1).11
The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD must enter our hearts and bodies as HE did Mary’s ON THE DAY Gabriel spoke to her the WORDS of GOD (Luke 1:26-38).
Water baptism will not save anyone’s soul. You must be born again of the SPIRIT (John 3:3-7). Sincerity in accepting the WORD is the key. If any person is not sincere about escaping the fires and torments of Hell and the Lake of Fire, salvation will not take place in them. We must come to a place in our lives where we are sick and tired of living a sinful life, a life without GOD in CHRIST, or else salvation will not take place in us. We must agree to live by GOD the WORD, the SPIRIT, to eat HIS BODY, HIS FLESH, and drink HIS BLOOD. CHRIST’S flesh is the WORD which became flesh (John 1:14). We must also drink HIS BLOOD (the SPIRIT), which is LIFE, to walk in HIS SPIRIT daily, to drink of HIS SPIRIT, of which the BLOOD is LIFE! For, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in CHRIST JESUS, who walk not after the flesh, but after [the BLOOD,] the SPIRIT” (Romans 8:1). We cannot be carnal at all and enter Heaven.12
To do good deeds is good and important, but not without the SPIRIT. We must be branches in JESUS who now has become the HOLY SPIRIT, the COMFORTER,13 for without the HOLY SPIRIT, we will not be able to continue the LIFE of CHRIST, the LIFE of HIS BLOOD on EARTH! “Not by might, nor by power, but by MY SPIRIT, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Zechariah 4:6). We must be born one more time, this time of the SPIRIT (John 3:3-7). “The flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41). Our overcoming power comes from GOD in CHRIST by the SPIRIT living and working in us (1 John 4:4).14 JESUS really understood this. HE prayed always without ceasing.15 HE humbled HIMSELF when HE found HIMSELF in the flesh of humans like us, and HE learned obedience as we must if we will stay out of Hell and enter Heaven (Hebrews 5:8-9)!16
The devil knows that his time is almost over (Revelation 12:12), and he is doing everything he can to convince all of the saints to give up. What good would it do for us to give up, to stop serving the LORD at the very end of time? Eat and drink the WORD of GOD, HIS SPIRIT, to be strong in GOD’S might.17 We will go through some trials, persecutions, despair, sickness, disease, some hard times here, but eternity in Heaven will be much more than worth it!18
If the job you have is too full of trials and temptation, if your friends always tempt you to sin, if you’re sincere about going to Heaven and serving the LORD, change your friends, then come to us. There is plenty of Godly work to do. The LORD will provide food and shelter for you and your family. Live a Godly life with us! Yes, we are being persecuted and slandered. JESUS was too. JESUS said we would be, but Heaven is much more than worth it.19 “Yea, and all that will live Godly in CHRIST JESUS shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).
JESUS said, “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his LORD. If they have persecuted ME, they will also persecute you” (John 15:20). The world is punishing all of you, and without any good reward. JESUS said, “Come unto ME, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take MY yoke upon you, and learn of ME; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls” (Matthew 11:28-29). Come to the LORD 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
