IMPOSSIBLE TO REPENT
by Tony Alamo
In Hebrews 6:4-6, Scripture states “it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the HOLY SPIRIT, And have tasted the good WORD of GOD, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the SON of GOD afresh, and put HIM to an open shame.”
Luke 1:37 states, “with GOD nothing shall be impossible,” but it is impossible for GOD to change HIS WORD. It is also impossible for GOD to lie, die, or fail.1 Hebrews 6:18 states, “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for GOD to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even JESUS, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec” (Hebrews 6:18-20).
The earthly temple of GOD are those of us who are born of the HOLY SPIRIT Christians (not Catholics).2 The earthly temple of GOD was set up as a symbol, type, or figure of the Kingdom of Heaven. In that temple, there was what they called the “most Holy place.” The only one allowed to enter the most Holy place was the Jewish high priest.3 The ark of the covenant was kept in the most Holy place. This is where the SPIRIT of GOD would come down and minister to the high priest.4 But this priesthood ended when CHRIST died on the cross, and the sign that the old priesthood was over was that the veil of the temple was torn, ripped right down the middle, when JESUS stated, “It is finished” at HIS death on the cross (John 19:30).5 This is when JESUS became the HIGH PRIEST after the order of Melchisedec, which means an everlasting priesthood. CHRIST is a priest forever. Hebrews 5:6 states, “As HE saith also in another place, THOU art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.” Revelation 1:5-6 states, “And from JESUS CHRIST, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto HIM that loved us, and washed us from our sins in HIS own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto GOD and HIS FATHER; to HIM be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
We as born-again Christians, being made kings and priests, are able to enter into and through the veil, the SPIRIT, to be with JESUS, the HIGH PRIEST.6 How could this be possible if we should fall away and are not able to repent? GOD does not allow sin to enter Heaven (Hebrews6:6). Re-crucifying CHRIST afresh7—in other words, sinning after you are saved—makes it impossible for you to repent.8 So how would it be that you, as a horrible sinner, could go through the veil and be with CHRIST, even after it is impossible for you to repent? You were enlightened and had tasted the Heavenly gift of salvation, but fell away from CHRIST. You were made partakers of the HOLY SPIRIT, but you made up your own doctrine, that you can still sin and be saved. Now you believe you can enter through the veil and sit in Heavenly places with CHRIST. But the doctrine of CHRIST is different than your doctrine. It is impossible to sit with CHRIST in Heavenly places and be crucifying HIM at the same time. For those of us who keep CHRIST’S commandments, CHRIST “hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in Heavenly places. That in the ages to come HE might shew the exceeding riches of HIS grace in his kindness toward us through CHRIST JESUS. For by grace [the period of time from GOD in which we are able to mature] are ye saved through faith [not by what the false churches teach, but by that which the Bible teaches us, the WORD of GOD]; and that not of yourselves [initial salvation cannot be of ourselves]: it is the gift of GOD” (Ephesians 2:6-8). But after our initial salvation, which is a gift, CHRIST tells us to take up our crosses and follow HIM in HIS work.9
In Matthew 24, JESUS warns the whole world to beware of false prophets with their false doctrine.10 The Apostle Paul warns us in chapter 1 of Galatians, verses 6-10: “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from HIM that called you into the grace of CHRIST unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of CHRIST. But though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or GOD? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of CHRIST.” Many of today’s churches are preaching a much different doctrine than the doctrine of JESUS, the prophets, and the apostles. Both the Old and New Testaments say that they are accursed.11 Do you want to go to a church that will teach you doctrine to make you accursed, so accursed it would be impossible for you to repent? It would be far better for you to stay at home, study your own King James Version Bible, and do what it says so that you can repent, and be one with CHRIST, and be a member of the body of CHRIST, a temple or mansion wherein GOD lives.
JESUS said if you love ME, keep MY commandments.12 The Apostle John, in 1 John 2:4-8 states, “He that saith, I know HIM, and keepeth not HIS commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. [Revelations 21:8a states, ‘All liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.’] But whoso keepeth HIS WORD, in him verily is the love of GOD perfected: hereby know we that we are in HIM. He that saith he abideth in HIM [CHRIST] ought himself also so to walk, even as HE walked. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the WORD which ye have heard from the beginning. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in HIM and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.” The Apostle John is saying these words to the born of the SPIRIT Christians that keep the commandments of GOD.
John 1:1 states that GOD is the WORD of GOD, and the WORD never changes. It is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).13 So if a person intends to enter Heaven, then he or she must keep the WORD. When JESUS states, “I am with you,” Matthew 28:18-20 states, “All power is given unto ME in Heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” JESUS is not talking to people who think that they can sin and still go to Heaven. HE is not talking to false prophets or churches that preach the false doctrine which states GOD loves us unconditionally, even loving us for sins that we have committed, past, present, and future. This is a lie!14 You will find out how big of a lie it is when you are screaming your head off in Hell and the Lake of Fire. If you don’t believe CHRIST, it would be impossible for you to repent now or on the day of judgment.
Believe JESUS, the prophets, the apostles, and me. Get out of the false churches and repent of your filthy sins 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
