JESUS, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
by Tony Alamo
One of the problems people have is that they stumble over the SIMPLICITY of the GOSPEL, the TRUTH OF GOD.1
The plan of salvation is easy to understand. It is so easy that a four or five year old child can easily understand it. What a cruel trick it would have been if GOD had made it so complicated that only people with high IQs could find out how to become born again of the SPIRIT.
Little children love JESUS. They come to HIM; they love HIM because they know HE loves them. HE says, “Suffer the little children to come unto ME, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of GOD. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of GOD as a little child shall in no wise enter therein” (Luke 18:16-17).
Many people twist the Scriptures and believe themselves to be highly intelligent professors. This is one of the reasons so many people are disgusted with these false, complicated, unintelligent ones. They believe themselves to be so smart, yet they are not even saved, born again of the SPIRIT.2 They don’t simply believe what JESUS, the apostles, and the prophets say, as children do, but come up with false interpretations and fallacy, such as stating you can sin and still enter HEAVEN, which is a damning lie.3 They condemn themselves to HELL.
GOD made truth easy to understand! A man who works at a coffee house or a gas station, a housewife, and anyone else with an honest heart can understand and receive salvation.4 A person with a heart of gold is what JESUS is searching for, and I believe it is what all sincere people are looking for.
Today people are too involved with politics. We are all disenchanted with these phonies. They all lie. Matthew 4:1 is plain and simple. “Then was JESUS led up of the SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when HE had fasted forty days and forty nights, HE was afterward hungry. And when the tempter came to HIM, he said, If YOU are the SON OF GOD, command that these stones be made bread. But HE answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread [that you can eat, that goes into your belly], but by every WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD” (Matthew 4:1-4). We live by all the WORD of GOD, the BIBLE (KJV).5 I use the KING JAMES VERSON because I believe it to be the TRUEST.
The BIBLE plainly tells us JESUS is the WORD of GOD.6 “In the beginning [of all things, everything] was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD was GOD.” Verse 14 tells us that the WORD of GOD is most certainly JESUS. “And the WORD was made flesh [a human, GOD-MAN], and dwelt among us, (and we [the apostles and multitudes] beheld HIS GLORY, the GLORY as of the only begotten of the FATHER,) FULL of POWER and TRUTH.” “The same [JESUS, the WORD] was in the beginning with GOD. All things were made by HIM [the preincarnate JESUS, the WORD]; and without HIM was not anything made that was made. In HIM was LIFE [in the WORD of GOD IS LIFE]; and the LIFE [which is in the WORD of GOD] was the [only] light of men [all mankind]. And the LIGHT [which is THE WORD of GOD, JESUS] shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” (John 1:2-5). This is easy to comprehend, but if people have given themselves over to darkness, Hell will be their home forever!
People absolutely need the light, which again is JESUS, THE WORD of GOD.7 Everything needs light; JESUS made everything that way. If you plant a flower in a dark room with only a sliver of light shining into the room, the flower will lean unto the little sliver of light!
GOD is very merciful to us all. I could never have believed in JESUS, the FATHER, or the HOLY SPIRIT unless GOD came to me. If anyone believed that way, I didn’t want them around me. They were disgusting to me, as I see the people are disgusted with me today. I felt this way until that day in a Beverly Hills attorney’s office when GOD deafened my ears and began talking audibly to my spirit throughout my whole body. The room was filled with around twenty-five or thirty people. When GOD began forcefully talking to ME, I began thinking I was crazy. This was in 1964. HE emphatically told me to tell the people in that office that JESUS CHRIST is coming back to earth. I tried to leave the room so I could commit myself into a private asylum, but the SPIRIT of GOD made me stay and do what I was told. So I did this until the LORD told me that was enough.
Now, 47 years later, I have been saved 47 years. I love true Christians. There are not that many of them. But now I know that the WORD of GOD is JESUS and is the LIGHT of the WORLD.8 To read the King James Version Bible (the old version) is sweet direction in this very dark world.
It is very sad to see the people of the world so deceived.9 The devil has done a GIANT slander job on me, but more so on GOD and the WORD of GOD, just before JESUS comes back to earth, and soon.10 This is the same smear job the devil did on JESUS until the majority of the people shouted “Crucify HIM,” over and over again.11 When they died, their spirits went before HIM. Now they are in HELL and waiting for the final judgment where they, with the devil, his evil angels, and all people who refused JESUS will be cast into the LAKE of FIRE.12
Revelation 22:19 tells us all, “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.” (This is one of the many Scriptures which tell us if we contradict the WORD of GOD, we will be taken out, blotted out of the BOOK OF LIFE.13) If you won’t go to Heaven, you will spend eternity screaming your head off in the LAKE of FIRE.14
All of us need truth, light, and direction. The LORD is the LIGHT of the WORLD. CALL on HIM now to receive JESUS, THE WORD, THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOU, and tell your children and all children the WORD of GOD. CHILDREN LOVE JESUS, AND JESUS LOVES THEM! Be saved by 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
