GET YOUR MIND OFF THE ECONOMY, BIGGER THINGS ARE HAPPENING
by Tony Alamo
A common repentant harlot shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven before the self-righteous (Matt. 21:31). God sent Israel (the younger Jews) into the Land of Canaan to possess it as the nation of Israel, the land of Israel.1 Moses was dead. Joshua was Israel’s new leader. The young Jews knew better than to disobey God. They saw what God did to all the elders, with the exception of Joshua and Caleb.2 Now they were ready to do everything God told them to do, so that they would be able to eventually lead a peaceful and quiet life, which is what most Jews want to this very day. It is no secret, though, that if they are pushed too far, they will fight as none other.
God terrorized the people of Canaan by the wonders He performed in Egypt. He created ten plagues, then opened the Red sea so Israel was able to escape through it from the Egyptian army, while the entire Egyptian army was drowned.3 Joshua, the son of Nun, sent two men to secretly spy on Jericho. They came into a harlot’s house named Rahab, and lodged there. Rahab took the two men and hid them from the king of Jericho. She came up to the roof where she had hidden them and said unto the men, “I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the Lord your God, He is God in Heaven above, and in earth beneath” (Josh. 2:9-11).
In Joshua 2:12, Rahab makes a covenant with the two men that when Israel destroys Jericho, she and all her family will be spared. Israel kept their promise to her, after they (God) destroyed Jericho, that wicked city.4 When Israel kept the commandments of God, no one could stand before them,5 but when they transgressed, they were cursed.6 Over and over again, God blessed Israel, then cursed them because of their sins.7
Much later, God called Jeremiah to be a prophet. The Lord spoke to him, saying, “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee [separated you from the disobedient people], and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I (Jeremiah), Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. Then the Lord put forth His hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put My words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down [all false doctrine and sin], to build, and to plant [the Word of God]” (Jer. 1:5-10).
“Then the Lord said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land. For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the Lord; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah. And I will utter My judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken Me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands. Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them. For, behold, I have made thee this day a defensed city, and an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land. And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee” (Jer. 1:14-19).
“Moreover the Word of the Lord came to me, saying, Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the Lord; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after Me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown. Israel was holiness unto the Lord, and the firstfruits of His increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the Lord” (Jer. 2:1-3). Jeremiah has a reputation of being the weeping prophet, but I see him as the iron man, having unbending and immovable firmness as well as a power of resistance which belonged to him in his obedience to God as a mighty prophet. Jeremiah prophesied during more than the last forty woeful years of the kingdom of Judah to the destruction of Jerusalem and the deportation of its inhabitants to Babylon.
His message was a stern warning to Judah and its capital city, Jerusalem, to give up their idolatry and apostasy in order to escape the seventy year Babylonian captivity (Jer. 25:1-14). He was intensely opposed, like myself, but he was and I am under the commandment of the Almighty God. His was a continual persecution for over forty years, and Susie (my late wife) and I have been persecuted now for forty-five years.
Jeremiah’s prophecies came to pass, and Jerusalem was destroyed.8 My prophecies have also come to pass in part and shall completely, visibly be fulfilled any time now. My prophecies are to the whole world. “Jesus is coming back to earth again soon, repent or perish!”9
Israel, when they feared and obeyed God, made the people tremble because the people knew God was with them.10 The USA was on top at one time too; not any longer. A big fire is coming to burn up the whole earth and all unrepentant sinners.11 Repent of your sins, and serve the Lord before it’s too late. Start out 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 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 the cross daily 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 watery 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, then 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
