THE DEVIL OPERATES IN ALL TRUE CHURCHES
by Tony Alamo
The LORD JESUS, in a series of parables, makes it clear to HIS disciples that whenever GOD plants a church and executes any Godly project, the enemy, the devil, always shows up to undermine what GOD has done.
The devil started his work in the Kingdom of Heaven when he convinced one third of the angels of GOD to be disobedient to GOD.1 Of course, GOD had one of HIS angels cast the devil and the unfaithful angels out of Heaven to the earth.2 After this, the devil began his work in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1-19). Because of Adam and Eve’s sin of disobedience, every human that would be born in the future was contaminated with sin for all time. Everyone has the Adamic sin on their eternal soul.3 For us to enter Heaven, all sins must be removed from our soul, because no sin is permitted in Heaven.4 We must become sinless, perfect, holy.5 GOD in HIS WORD tells us there can be no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood, so as a temporary solution, GOD set up the law of animal sacrifices (Hebrews 9:22). These pointed to the true sacrifice, which would be GOD incarnate (JESUS).6 After JESUS was born (the true sacrifice), the law of sacrifices was ended (Hebrews 8:13-16). Heretics say this also put an end to the moral law, which JESUS said will never end (Matthew 5:17-18).
JESUS lets us know that HE came to earth to sow HIS WORD into men’s hearts.7 HE said the seed HE was sowing was HIS WORD, which would grow up in the children of the Kingdom of GOD. HE said that when the children of the Kingdom begin growing in HIS WORD, the devil plants weeds to choke out the children of the Kingdom. JESUS explains that these weeds are children of the devil (Matthew 13:38-39). JESUS told HIS disciples to follow HIM and HE would make them fishers of men (Matthew 4:19). Later, JESUS told HIS disciples that “the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a net, that was cast unto the sea, and gathered of every kind [of fish],” some clean and some unclean (Matthew 13:47). (All clean fish are to have scales and fins! No shellfish are clean. (Leviticus 11:9-12) “Which, when [the net] was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:48-50).
One of the LORD’S disciples became a devil when he fell away. The weeds the devil sows today are all of the false religions, which cause millions of souls to fall away. My heart breaks for the Japanese who worship Buddha, a false god. How hopeless they are without JESUS, who is the only WAY, TRUTH, and LIFE (John 14:6)! I feel sorry for all the deceived people who won’t receive the actual incarnate GOD, which again is JESUS.8 JESUS said that HE is the head of the true church of GOD, the New Jerusalem. HE is our head, and we are HIS body or temple, HIS Bride on earth. We are bone of HIS bone and flesh of HIS flesh. HE is still here on earth in us, the called out ones, sowing the seed of life into the world. Those of us that are saved are all members of HIS body for your benefit, for your good, for your salvation (Romans 12:4-5).9 Receive HIS WORD now so you can enter Heaven. Start 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
