TO LIVE FOREVER
by Tony Alamo
Most people have never heard of the books that the first man, Adam, wrote: The Books of Adam and Eve. Not many people have heard of them because the Catholics didn’t include them as part of the Bible. They deliberately withheld them from the world population, but they are a major revelation of the Bible.
It is the same with the books of Seth, Enoch, Methuselah, Noah, Jubilees, and Jasher. Again, the Catholics deliberately left these precious books out of the Bible, and because of this, many important facts of GOD remain a mystery to the world at large. For instance, there is no clear explanation as to why Adam and Abel made animal sacrifices unto GOD in the Bible that the Catholics (the Vatican) have allowed you to read.
Why was GOD pleased with Abel’s sacrifices and displeased with Cain’s sacrifices?1 These sacrifices were meant to be sin sacrifices, symbolic of GOD coming to the world as a man (CHRIST) to sacrifice HIMSELF, shedding HIS genuine, sinless, human blood for the salvation of the souls of whomsoever would receive HIM, whomsoever would believe in HIM.2 HIS name would be EMMANUEL, GOD WITH US, JESUS.3
All this was initially brought about by the sins of Eve and Adam. Because Eve is the mother of all flesh, and Adam her husband, we are all plagued with the Adamic sin on our souls.4 Our souls need to be cleansed from all sin, or we will spend eternity in Hell and in the Lake of Fire.5 Romans 3:23-25 says it this way: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of GOD; Being justified freely by HIS grace through the redemption that is in CHRIST JESUS: Whom GOD hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in HIS blood, to declare HIS righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of GOD.”
Hebrews 9:22 states, “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission [no forgiveness of sin].”6 Hebrews 11:4 states, “By faith Abel offered unto GOD a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, GOD testifying of his gifts.” The gift that Abel sacrificed to GOD was his obedience to GOD in sacrificing a lamb. This was symbolic of the future coming of CHRIST, HIS death as a sacrifice for the cleansing of our sins.7 No detergent other than the blood of JESUS, our LORD and our SAVIOR, is strong enough to take our sins away, to cleanse us from all sin. Cain’s offering consisted of vegetables and fruit that he grew. These did not have the virtue of the blood of a lamb, which was symbolic of CHRIST’S blood for the cleansing of our sins. To deny the blood of CHRIST is to deny your salvation, as Cain did.8 Naturally, it angered GOD that anyone would reject GOD’S only begotten SON, as well as HIS death, resurrection, and ascension back into Heaven.9
GOD told Adam and Eve that if they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil instead of the tree of LIFE, they would surely die (Genesis 2:16-17). Adam and his wife Eve sinned by choosing knowledge rather than LIFE eternal by eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil instead of the tree of LIFE.They both preferred knowledge rather than LIFE. By making this choice, they broke the first commandment, and they broke off from GOD to be with Satan. JESUS told Satan, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread [from a bakery] alone, but by EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD” (Matthew 4:4).10
Genesis 3:1-7 says, “Now the serpent [whom Satan entered] 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 said unto the serpent [whom Satan was living in], We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, GOD hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
“And the serpent [whom Satan had entered and was living in] said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For GOD doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise [according to the words of the devil, Satan], she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel would not be sacrificing anything unto the LORD if there wasn’t a reason for it. After Adam and Eve sinned and became aware that they had given their souls, their dominion over this planet, and their future unto the devil, and after they had been banished from the Garden of Eden, they grieved and fasted for very long periods of time. Then GOD, in HIS mercy, decided to give mankind a second chance. HE told the very sinful couple that HE would come to earth in the latter days as a man, die in their place, and shed HIS genuine, human blood for the cleansing of their sins if they would obey HIM from then on. Then GOD set up the law of animal burnt sacrifices. This was symbolic of GOD’S coming to earth as a man and as a sacrifice for our sins, HIS dying on the cross, and HIS going to Hell for three and a half days for them, for us, and for those who would accept HIM as their sacrifice, if they would never doubt HIM or sin again.11 In John 8:11, JESUS says, “Go, and sin no more.” First John 3:8 states, “He that committeth sin is of the devil.”
This is the exact reason why Cain and Abel made sacrifices. Genesis 4:2 states, “And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground [a crop farmer].” All sacrifices had to have the symbolic blood of JESUS in them. Abel’s sacrifices had the symbolic blood of JESUS in them, but the sacrifices of Cain were, again, fruit and vegetables, which did not have the symbol of the virtue of redeeming blood in them. Because they did not, this was almost like Cain thumbing his nose at GOD.
John 4:24 states, “GOD is a SPIRIT,” and a spirit does not have blood. This is why GOD had to come to earth as a human. To redeem mankind, HE had to have genuine, sinless, human blood to shed for the sins of all mankind.12
Another mystery solved in The Books of Adam and Eve is that Cain and Abel had twin sisters. This fact is mentioned also in the Jewish Mishna from the Talmud.
As I previously stated, the Catholics left many books out of the Bible: The Book of Jasher, as well as the books of Seth, Enoch, Jubilees, and Noah. This will add to the sins of the Vatican, and there shall be consequences for withholding the WORD of GOD from the world. Revelation 22:18-19 says, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, GOD shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, GOD shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
In the eleventh chapter of Hebrews, verse 5, there is a small mention of the great prophet Enoch. In The Book of Enoch, we find GOD prophesied through Enoch that the child GOD promised Abraham would be born of Sarah. This child would be Isaac, the promised child of GOD, not Ishmael, the son of Sarah’s bondwoman.13 Enoch also prophesied that GOD would deliver the entire nation of Israel from the land of Egypt, that GOD would open the Red Sea, allowing the entire nation of Israel to cross through on dry ground, and that after Israel crossed safely, GOD would drown the entire Egyptian army, allowing the waves to crash down upon their heads as they pursued the Hebrew children. The Egyptians were drowned, and the Hebrews were safe on dry ground.14
Before the entire Hebrew nation was delivered out of Egypt, GOD put them through a very important test. That test was for each household to kill a lamb and place the same symbolic blood of CHRIST on the doorposts and on the lintel of every house.15 This is mentioned in Exodus, chapter 12. It is a reaffirmation of what GOD told Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel at the beginning of time regarding the symbolic sacrifice of GOD coming to earth as a man in the person of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who would be the sacrifice for all mankind through HIS dying on the cross, shedding HIS blood for the remission (the forgiveness) of our sins, and going to Hell in our place, again for the forgiveness of our sins.16 HE also ascended out of Hell,17 then into Heaven in a cloud,18 and is soon to return to earth.19 CHRIST is called the “LAMB OF GOD.”20
Exodus, chapter 12 says, “And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,… In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish [This is symbolic of JESUS CHRIST, our LORD, who was without sin. If HE had one sin on HIS soul, HIS blood that HE would shed would have been powerless to take away our sins as well as the sins of the whole world.], a male of the first year.” CHRIST had to be a male, the first begotten of the FATHER. Many people today debate as to whether GOD is a male or a female. GOD is most certainly male. The Bible (King James Version) is the truth!
“Ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses” (Exodus 12:1-7). This is symbolic of the cross where GOD, in the flesh, would shed HIS blood for the sins of the world.
The blood of JESUS and HIS cross, where HE died and shed HIS blood for us, were from the beginning of time.21 It is seen throughout the entire Old Testament in the animal sacrifices. It is also seen throughout the New Testament wherein the animal sacrifices, symbolic of CHRIST, would end because CHRIST, GOD in the flesh, the true sacrifice, would come and fulfill all the prophecies regarding HIMSELF from the beginning of time until now.22
In the Old Testament, GOD said, “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt [with the death of all the firstborn of every family and all cattle]” (Exodus 12:13). This is how important the blood was that night, and how important it is forever. Now, in the New Testament, when GOD sees the blood of JESUS applied by faith to the doorposts of your heart, HE will not send your soul to Hell, then to the Lake of Fire.23
If people refuse to apply the blood of JESUS by faith to the doorposts of their hearts, they’re sending their own souls to Hell and the Lake of Fire. You may feel as though you have received a lot of bad deals in your life, and you may feel you have earned the right to be stubborn, but you should repent of that thought. GOD is not a GOD of sloppy sentimentality. If you have sent your soul to Hell, you have sent your soul to Hell.
In John 10:7, JESUS said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.” JESUS wants us to go through HIS blood for forgiveness of our sins. This is reminiscent of Exodus 12:7, where the Hebrew children had to strike the blood of the lamb on each side of the doorposts and on the lintel of their homes so that the firstborn of every family would not die that night when the angel of the LORD passed over them and saw the blood. But today, JESUS is the door to the house of GOD. When GOD sees the blood of JESUS (the LAMB of GOD) applied by faith to your soul, you are qualified to live in the house of GOD, as long as you continue in the faith. In John 6:63, JESUS says, “The WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.”
John 1:29-34 tells of the beginning of CHRIST’S ministry: “The next day John [the Baptist] seeth JESUS coming unto him, and saith, Behold the LAMB OF GOD, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is HE of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for HE was before me. And I knew HIM not: but that HE should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the SPIRIT descending from Heaven like a dove, and it abode upon HIM. And I knew HIM not: but HE that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the SPIRIT descending, and remaining on HIM, the same is HE which baptizeth with the HOLY SPIRIT. And I saw, and bare record that this is the SON OF GOD.”
Proverbs 29:18 states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The things I write about salvation are written in the Bible, and the things that are in the Bible that have not happened yet shall surely happen. People visualize many things, but if you desire to live in the city which GOD has prepared for us, you should set aside all of this present world, including your memories of sordid sexual affairs, of gazing upon human flesh that will soon decay, pornography, gold, silver, diamonds, rubies, sports, music; of mountain scenes, oceans, rivers, lakes, and everything else. Everything in this world will, according to Scripture, burn, so why cast your eyes or thoughts upon anything that will eventually perish?24
How much more profitable would it be for you to visualize how Adam, Eve, Abel, Seth, Enoch, and Noah, by faith, kept their sins covered with the blood of JESUS, and kept their evil thoughts covered with the same blood of JESUS! How much more profitable will it be for you to keep your mind on the river of LIFE, which flows from the throne of GOD into your mind, heart, and spirit, but only if you keep the vision of all this alive in you. In that way, you might live forever in the Kingdom of Heaven. The SPIRIT of GOD, which is our LIFE, will not live in the spirit of anyone whose sins have not been forgiven through the blood of JESUS.
“The LIFE of the flesh is in the blood” (Leviticus 17:11).25 “The blood is the LIFE” (Deuteronomy 12:23). JESUS said in John 6:63, “The WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.” JESUS is the WORD OF GOD (John 1:1-2, 14).26
The vision that we see of this fact, and must remember, is located in John 19:34, where “one of the soldiers [seeing that JESUS was already dead] with a spear pierced HIS side, and forthwith came there out blood and water [eternal LIFE].” The blood is for the forgiveness of sins, and the water, symbolic of the SPIRIT, is the LIFE of GOD in HIS SON, JESUS, that enters us after we’ve been cleansed from our sins, giving us the power to keep GOD’S commandments, if we desire to do so.27 After the blood of JESUS cleanses us from our sins and the SPIRIT enters into us, we have the ultimate gift, which only GOD is able to give us. Let this be your gift 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
After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Diligently study the King James Version Bible, and do what it says until the day you die13

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).
