“Why Is It YOU Show Us These Things and Not to the World?”
by Tony Alamo
Many readers of the Bible believe that Satan has recently been cast down to earth, along with one third of the Angels that follow him. This is because the twelfth chapter of Revelation says, “And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon [Satan]; and the dragon [Satan] fought and his angels. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in Heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our GOD, and the power of HIS CHRIST: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our GOD day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the LAMB, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:7-11). This passage from the twelfth chapter of Revelation is a flashback. The book of Revelation is a book of the past (flashbacks), present, and the future. Satan and his angels were here on earth while Adam and Eve were living on earth around six thousand years ago. He deceived Eve by telling her the first “GOD is love” message. He accused GOD of being a liar at that time, and still does this today, and he does the same to all of GOD’S followers.
GOD told Eve that if she ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, she would SURELY DIE. She and Adam became Adam when they came together in wedlock. Genesis 3:4 states, “And the serpent [Satan] said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die [he was calling GOD a liar, when he, Satan, ‘is a liar and the father of it’ (John 8:44)]: For GOD does know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:4-5). Eve bought this lie (that they wouldn’t die), and since she is the mother of all living (all flesh), all humanity which came from her have the Adamic sin on their souls and are on their way to Hell and the Lake of Fire.1 So, in order to give humanity another chance at everlasting life, GOD would have to come to earth as a man in HIS SON CHRIST JESUS to be an atonement for us.2
There are only two classes of people on earth, the Godly and the ungodly, the saved and the lost, those who believe GOD and those who believe Satan.3 Salvation comes from accepting the truth and rejecting Satan, who is a liar and the father of all liars (John 8:44). This is why we are saved by faith in CHRIST, the truth (that which GOD says is truth), and our rejecting of lies (of all of the lies that Satan tells).4
JESUS said, “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE.” HE states this truth in John 14:6. When JESUS told HIS disciples that HE was going away to prepare a place for them in John 14:3-4, HE said, “I will come again, and receive you unto MYSELF; that where I am, there ye may be also. And where I go ye know, and the way ye know.” John 14:5 states, “Thomas saith unto HIM, LORD, we know not where THOU goest; and how can we know the way? JESUS saith unto him, I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man comes unto the FATHER, but by ME. [In other words, JESUS is the only route to Heaven. JESUS says,] If you had known ME, you should have known MY FATHER also: and from henceforth you know HIM, and have seen HIM. Philip saith unto HIM, LORD, show us the FATHER, and it [will satisfy] us. JESUS saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known ME, Philip? he that hath seen ME hath seen the FATHER; and how sayest thou then, Show us the FATHER? Believest thou not that I am in the FATHER, and the FATHER in ME? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of MYSELF: but the FATHER that dwelleth in ME, HE does the works. Believe ME that I am in the FATHER, and the FATHER in ME: or else believe ME for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on ME, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto MY FATHER. And whatsoever ye shall ask in MY name, that will I do, that the FATHER may be glorified in the SON [and in all of us that believe GOD, not like Eve who believed Satan]. If ye shall ask any thing in MY name, I will do it. If you love ME, keep MY commandments” (John 14:4-15).
If you keep the LORD’S commandments, you are the exact opposite of Eve. We are saved by faith in what GOD says, which is the whole WORD of GOD. And we are damned if we disbelieve any of it.5
When the people of Satan read these words, which are the truth, the bowels of Hell will be stirred up in them. They will be so angry at me for writing the truth that they would want to kill me as they did JESUS, the prophets, and the apostles. Satan does not want you to know the truth. He wants you, like Eve, to believe his lies, his false religions. Remember, JESUS is the only route to Heaven.6 Again, JESUS says, “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh to the FATHER, but by ME” (John 14:6). Jesus is the only route. Anyone attempting to go to the FATHER except through HIM is like a thief and a robber (John 10:1). “There is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” but the name of JESUS (Acts 4:12).
“Judas saith unto CHRIST, not Iscariot, LORD, how is it that THOU wilt manifest THYSELF unto us, and not unto the world? JESUS answered and said unto him, If a man loves ME [here JESUS is not talking about the kind of love a man has for a woman, or a woman has for a man, or a homosexual has for men], he will keep MY WORDS: and MY FATHER will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him” (John 14:22-23). HE is talking about HIMSELF being the “WAY.” HE is talking about HIMSELF being the “TRUTH.” HE is talking about HIMSELF being “ETERNAL LIFE,” “THE RESURRECTION,” “THE DOOR to Heaven,” “THE ALPHA, THE OMEGA, THE BEGINNING of all things, THE END of all things,” THE CREATOR of all things, the FATHER, the SON, the WORD, the HOLY SPIRIT.7 JESUS is the “fullness of the GODHEAD bodily” (Colossians 2:9).8
Colossians 2:8 states, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after CHRIST.” Colossians 2:10 states, “And ye are complete in HIM, which is the head of all principality and power.” When CHRIST says if you love ME, HE means if you love HIM showing you the way to Heaven. If you love hearing the truth, and if you love knowing that you have eternal life and all of the other things about JESUS, then be saved, and keep all of HIS commandments, that you may live eternally.
The first commandment is to “love the LORD thy GOD with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength” (Mark 12:30). Why? It is because of all the things about HIM. HE gives you eternal life in paradise forever.9 HE shows you the way to get there. HE shows you the truth, and there is no other truth in the whole world or the whole universe.
Can’t you see that Satan has the whole world deceived into thinking that there is another way, another truth, and another life without GOD?10 All of this is a lie! To love JESUS in GOD is to love all of the things about HIM. GOD is in JESUS, and JESUS is in GOD, and HE can be in you, as HE is in me by the HOLY SPIRIT.11
The world hates and fights GOD’S WORD as Eve did in the beginning. Eve’s act caused all living beings to have to die. This caused CHRIST to come into the world and die for us so we might be redeemed, saved from an eternity of torment.
When you become saved, redeemed, love the brethren, which means show them the way, the truth, and the eternal life.12 Judas asked JESUS, “Why do YOU show us these things, and not the world?” JESUS as much as told them, “because you love ME, the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, and they don’t” (John 14:22-24).
First John 2:4-5 states, “He that saith, I know HIM, and keepeth not HIS commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth HIS WORD, in him verily is the love of GOD perfected: hereby know we that we are in HIM,” because like CHRIST, we lead people to the way by the truth for eternal life in Heaven with CHRIST. Receive CHRIST now and keep HIS commandments to the end. Start out 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
