THREE UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS
TO OVERTHROW GOD
by Tony Alamo
Doesn’t it bother you that Satan has deceived the whole world? He has, on three occasions, openly made a move to replace GOD and the kingdom of GOD. Two of his moves have miserably failed, and this third move he is making at this very hour shall soon fail as well.
Satan’s first attempt to overthrow GOD was in the Garden of Eden, when Satan asked Eve, “Hath GOD said?” Genesis 3:1-3 states, “Now the serpent [Satan] was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD GOD had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath GOD said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman [instead of rebuking and rejecting him] said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden.” But GOD said, regarding the fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden, “Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.” When GOD says “lest ye die,” HE isn’t saying death is a brief, minute thing. HE means death is an eternal death to the soul for a man or a woman, an eternity in the flames of Hell, an eternal death. The fact of this matter is identified throughout both Old and New Testament Scripture.1
The woman, as well as most of the world’s population, never dreams that when you accept Satan’s argument, you are accepting a woeful eternity, a Hell that never ends, which has the most maddening effect on both the soul and mind of its victim. Hell shall belch forth the smoke of the victim forever (Revelation 14:9-11). Those who worship (i.e. listen to) Satan, his one-world government, and his world church (Catholic) shall meet the same fate.2 Satan embodied by a serpent, subtle as he is, deceived Eve, and now he is deceiving the whole world.3
In Revelation 12:9, Satan is identified as the great dragon. “And the great dragon was cast out [of Heaven], that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world.” Satan knew that by deceiving Eve, he would condemn the entire world.4 Eve became Satan’s first evangelist; she was the first goat. In order to be a goat of Satan, you cannot believe in JESUS, or be one of HIS disciples. You cannot live a crucified CHRIST life, but must be free to do whatever you please. You cannot testify of CHRIST but must deny HIM, HE that came into the world to save sinners.5
When Satan told Eve that thou shalt not die, thou shalt be as GOD, so eat and feed your husband the same fruit, Eve did as he said, and evangelized her husband. Their eyes were opened (Genesis 3:7). They knew they were sinners, and that they had been deceived. The rulership of the world now belonged to Satan instead of to them, and nothing but faith in CHRIST’S future death and resurrection could restore them to GOD.
Originally, GOD blessed Adam and Eve above all creatures. HE gave them rulership over the entire universe, every living creature. Genesis 1:28 tells us GOD said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it: And have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Adam and Eve were in charge of the whole world and everything in it. When Satan deceived them, the whole world lay in sin under the rulership of the devil, so GOD planned to redeem the world by descending into the world as a man.6 GOD became the Son of man. HE denied HIMSELF for our sake, even to the death of HIMSELF on the cross, followed by HIS resurrection and ascension into Heaven.7
John 3:16 states, “For GOD so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM [not Satan or anyone else] should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Having everlasting life is possible only if CHRIST, who is GOD, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, continues in you as your life (John 14:6).8 You cannot possess eternal life by simply saying the sinner’s prayer. You must also become a disciple. The LORD commands us to take up our cross and follow HIM (Luke 9:23-25).9 To have eternal life, we cannot ever descend from the cross.10 In other words, we can no longer sin.
Satan is a defeated foe.11 At first, it looked as though Satan had world dominion forever. But today, if we obey CHRIST and renounce Satan, his one-world government, and his satanic cult churches headed by the Vatican, dominion will be ours in CHRIST.12
Man’s second attempt to overthrow GOD and HIS kingdom in Heaven was in Babylon. It failed, of course. Genesis 11:1-9 bears record that “the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto Heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let US go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech [just as the Democrats and Republicans don’t understand each other today, so nothing worthwhile is being accomplished]. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
Satan’s third and final attempt to try to overthrow GOD and HIS kingdom is occurring at this very moment in time. Some men falsely say that the UFOs they are seeing are from other planets, but this is false. These UFOs are not from other planets; they are from Heaven. The reason I know this is because when Susie and I were going to Las Vegas to be married, we were on the highway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas late at night. It was dark when Susie, who was driving, took my left hand and said to me, “Tony, let’s pray to GOD now and ask HIM if there are UFOs, let us see them.” It’s for sure that beings from other planets could not hear our prayer to GOD, nor would they answer a prayer we were making to GOD. Immediately, squadrons of UFOs flew directly at our windshield. They came so close that I thought they were going to crash into us. GOD answered our prayer immediately. When GOD answered our prayer instantly, my faith in GOD and HIS answering of prayers was strengthened.
These wheel-like aircraft are mentioned several times in the Bible.13 They are GOD’S royal air force of Angels surveying the wickedness of this present-day world just before GOD puts an end to the evil that exists here on earth at CHRIST’S return. GOD dispatches the Angels in this tribulation period of time (and we are in the tribulations). The Angels report to GOD, then GOD dispatches destroying Angels to destroy certain wicked areas of the earth.14 HE destroys by pestilences (which are diseases), famines, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, and many others.
A good part of the earth’s population believes that mankind shall outwit GOD. They have forgotten the past, wherein GOD foiled their attempts. Satan told Eve that ye shall not die, but “shall be as gods.” But he lied. We know this because both Eve and her husband died. Also, Nimrod and the world population never got their tower finished, nor did they build their city in Heaven. It just didn’t happen.
Again, the majority of the world population has spent billions of dollars, and is more than willing to spend trillions of dollars more, to move the world population to another planet, another planet which they think has all the attributes of earth. But none of the planets have any such attributes. The deceived world is waiting with bated breath for this folly to occur. They have believed the false doctrine of the one-world government and demonic church, both led by Satan, which GOD said would deceive the whole world in these last days (Revelation 12:9). GOD said that Satan’s one-world church, which controls Satan’s one-world government, would be located in the city of the seven hills (of course this is Rome, the Vatican, the United Nations).15 If you don’t know the Vatican to be that city, all you need to do is go to a travel agency and ask for tickets to the city of the seven hills. They will give you tickets to Rome, Italy. Again, this is the very Rome that satanically controls the U.N., which is the one-world government. It is also called “The New World Order” and “Satan’s seat” (Revelation 2:13). GOD’S WORD, through the Angel with the seven plagues and the other Angels, shall soon destroy the earth (and all wicked people).16
Revelation 17:1-6, 8 states, “And there came one of the seven Angels which had the seven vials [These vials are full of the seven last plagues carried by THE UFOs, which really are the IFOs, the identifiable flying objects. We are able to identify the IFOs by knowing GOD and HIS WORD. GOD is the WORD (John 1:1, Revelation 19:13).], and talked with me [this Angel talked with me, John], saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore [the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican] that sitteth upon many waters [all nations over all the earth]: With whom the kings of the earth [all the heads of government, as well as the Vatican judges and Vatican prosecutors] have committed fornication [every vile sin and persecution and prosecution of the innocent (GOD’S people)], and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. [This means what they call political correctness (such as same-sex marriage, homosexuality), anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, blood-thirstiness, murder, thievery, and everything else that is contrary to GOD and HIS WORD.]
“So he carried me [John] away in the SPIRIT into the wilderness [the world]: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast [The woman is the Vatican, the one-world religion, and the scarlet colored beast is the U.N., which is the Vatican’s vehicle. It takes her places so she can destroy the works and the people of GOD with her Canon Law. She is], full of names of blasphemy [for example, if a demonic person is offended by the WORD of GOD, the Vatican and the one-world government makes it a crime to mention GOD in public schools, courtrooms, political arenas, memorials, and other strategic places in the world. And because most of the hierarchy in the Roman Catholic Church is homosexual, they have made a new rule, that being anti-homosexual is a horrid sin (a hate crime). To be of this mind, you must have taken the Mark of the Beast on your forehead (Revelation 14:9-11). This is a very evil spiritual matter.], having seven heads and ten horns [This tells us the one-world government is comprised of many governments, united as one. They all think the same way; they all blindly receive whatever Satan says (Revelation 17:12-15). The devil makes it to be patriotic when you receive everything he says, and unpatriotic whenever you don’t receive everything he says].
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color [these are the colors of the Roman Catholic cult], and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls [All the money collected by the Internal Revenue Service illegally belongs to the Vatican. They literally have trillions of dollars to waste.], having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: [The Vatican, which again is Satan’s seat, is pro every sin which is in the world, and the netherworld.] And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH [the phrase ‘written on her forehead’ simply means her mind is absorbed in all satanic evil].
“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints [Satan’s Vatican is well known for causing all the bloodshed on the earth, including abortions, the Holocaust, the Spanish Inquisition, and every war that has ever taken place], and with the blood of the martyrs of JESUS [the Angel of the LORD told John this]: and when I saw her [the Vatican],…and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.” “The beast that was” was Rome before it fell, and today Satan has revived Rome with his satanic spirit, which has been magnified to tribulation proportions.
When I tell of the persecutions and prosecutions my church has endured for the past fifty years, I am not telling of it to complain or to seek sympathy, but to show everyone at large how easy it is to endure all the evil from the Roman Catholic Cult, because GOD has given me a vision. Without a vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18). We are to rejoice when we are persecuted for JESUS. It would take volumes to tell you of just some of the persecutions. GOD told me that I would have to be 100 million times stronger spiritually than a giant oak tree that fell down outside my church about 15 minutes after I told the congregation what the LORD told me.17 “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in Heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets” (Luke 6:22-23).
I tell you before GOD and all the inhabitants of the world that what people are calling UFOs are not from other planets, but are the Angels of Heaven. I pledge my soul on this. Those who tell you otherwise are the deceived followers of Satan, the same as Eve, the people of Babylon, and the U.N., and they will take you to Hell with them. Humanity cannot and will not take the place of GOD. Humanity has failed in the past, and shall always fail.
JESUS CHRIST is the WORD of GOD. Believe on the WORD of GOD (on JESUS CHRIST), and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31). To accept CHRIST, THE WORD OF GOD, say 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

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
