DISTRACTIONS ARE FROM THE DEVIL
by Tony Alamo
It seems that everyone becomes distracted when they are praying. Why? Because the devil is the distracter. If this occurs when you are praying, pray to the LORD and your guardian angel to help you with this problem. Many people fall asleep when they are praying, especially if they are tired. It is therefore good to pray in the morning. It is also good to make shorter prayers until you get stronger spiritually. GOD will still hear them. It is most important for us to be heard, and you will be heard.
Part of the Mystery of Iniquity is that there are weeds in the church (false Christians). JESUS told us that there would be weeds among the wheat (devils among the true Christians) (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-42). This is what the Catholics use to explain away the crusades (the evil in their cult), such as the Spanish Inquisition, Hitler, homosexuality, and the many wars they have started. However, they bypass the false doctrines and many other evils they are doing. We need to witness to them. Many have come to the LORD through our witness. Statues and false doctrines are abominations to the LORD. Weeds choke the life out of the wheat, especially if we pull them out of the church too soon. JESUS had a weed among HIS followers whose name was Judas.
Mohammad couldn’t read or write, so he never was able to read the Bible. To him, the Bible is full of false doctrine. How could he determine such a thing when he never read it? If you decide to read the Qur’an, don’t do it until you have studied the Bible, so you will easily see the fallacy in the Qur’an. The same goes for any false doctrine or other false religion.
It is wrong to take communion if there is sin on your soul, in your life (1 Corinthians 11:27-29).
The entire Bible is inspired. “All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of GOD may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but Holy men of GOD spake as they were moved by the HOLY SPIRIT” (1 Peter 1:21).
Many people, like the Jews and the Muslims, believe Catholicism is Christianity. Hitler’s Germany was Catholic. They murdered the Jews, Muslims, Negroes, and many others by the millions. GOD calls that church the “false prophet,” the mother of every abomination on earth. “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet…And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 16:13, 17:5).
The hierarchy members of that cult, the hierarchy also run the U.N., the “supposed to be” “New World Order,” and they have created their own “Roman Canon Law,” which is the law of Satan.
People want to believe in GOD, and that is very good, but the Church of Rome is not GOD! GOD can forgive sin if people repent. Some people forgive vile crimes, even when GOD has not forgiven them. Only GOD is able to forgive sin. GOD knows who really repents. HE knows our hearts!
It is important for those of us on the front lines, fighting Satan by GOD’S WORD, to know these facts, these Biblical truths! When dear ones are murdered, as they are in the world, people don’t understand why, and they blame GOD. GOD HIMSELF was murdered on the cross at Calvary. GOD will avenge! This is our consolation. We all will be judged. We will see GOD’S judgment. It all happens at the same time, immediately after the tribulation (Matthew 24:29, 1 Corinthians 15:51-54).
Be careful how you hear! (Luke 8:18). The devil is slick! “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of GOD: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). Go only by the WORD (GOD), not by tradition or false doctrine.
Joseph, Mary’s husband, was very old. Mary was very young (a pre-teenager). After the birth of JESUS, she had other children, four boys and at least two daughters. “Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not HIS mother called Mary? and HIS brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And HIS sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?” (Matthew 13:55-56). Mary was NOT a perpetual virgin as the Catholics teach! “Believe on the LORD JESUS CHRIST and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31). 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).
