Destination of Man’s Soul
By Editorial Team
About This Post
You have a soul. When you are alive, the soul is within you. You can see, you can understand, and you can do whatever it is you do every day. The understanding that you have is not because of your brain. When you are dead you still have a brain but it is not functional anymore because the soul that made it function is not there anymore.
The Word of God says that whether in heaven or in hell, the soul can still feel the pain. It can still feel thirst.
Your soul is the real you. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, where do you want to find yourself when you finally leave this temporal life and wake up to the true life?

When we face the Almighty Father in judgment after our death, we have nothing to present but ourselves, our souls to Him. And the only question He will ask is: “Did you obey My Will?”
Matthew 7:21 says, “Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven.”
Humans will grow old
To people on their deathbed, heaven is very, very important but not so when you are young, when you are strong, and when you have a lot of money. It is not important to you when you are famous and there is a lot going on in your life. Heaven and hell is nothing to you. Your only concern is your life at the moment.
Nevertheless, even if you live a life of luxury, even if you live a life of privilege of a king or as some would describe as very wealthy, you will grow old one day. Every year you will grow older and never younger.
Psalm 90:10 tells us: “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”
One score is 20 years, three scores is 60 years plus 10. That is 70 years of your life. That is the given lifespan of the human being. And if by reason of… like genetics, you reach fourscore or 80 years, He said that those excess years from seventy to eighty would be years of labor and sorrow and pain. This means that your life will not be a quality life anymore, and those years are coming fast especially if you’ve already reached the golden 50 years. After that, time flies, and one day you will say, “Oh my God, I am already seventy!”
Humans have Souls
But when we are young, we don’t care about time, we don’t care about our age; we are strong and in the bubble of our youth and we don’t care about anything. But young or not, we must face the issue of eternity; we are all going there because each of us has a soul.
We are here because of loyalty to the Word of God and to where we are going after this physical life is over. And that is between the two eternities – heaven or hell.
To many people, especially those who believe themselves to be ‘educated’ or ‘intelligent,’ these eternities are just things of the faith, akin to superstitions, or the fruit of a very active imagination. But there is nothing clearer than the eternal part of the Word of the Father. That is why we have the Bible, the Word of God. And the Bible tells us much about who we are spiritually.
The Soul is the One that can Feel
In the beginning, man was formed from the dust of the earth and God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. So you are now a living soul. You have a soul that is a part of you which you cannot see. Nevertheless, that part of you that you cannot see will live forever.
This is what I am concerned about when I preach the Word of God. No matter who you are, where you were born, what the color of your skin is, the color of your eyes, your status in life—none matters. All of us human beings, all races, we all have a soul. And we have one source of that soul — the Father Almighty who gave us life and a soul.
When that soul is within you, you are alive physically, as you are right now. That soul is in you. That is why you can see me. That is why you can hear me. That is why you can smell, you can taste and you can feel pain.
People have always thought that it is the body that has sensation. No, it is not your body that is made of the dust that has those sensations. It is the soul that is within you. So when you are alive you have all these senses activated. But when you die physically and you breathe your last breath, and that soul goes up to God to give an account of what his life had been here on earth, that body will be left behind.
You have seen a dead body, have you not? Whether a friend, a relative or someone you know. Try to open the eyelid of the dead body. It has eyeballs but it cannot see you. It has a nose but it cannot smell you. It has ears but it cannot hear you.
Try to prick its skin with a needle. It has a body but it cannot feel the pain. It has a mouth but it cannot talk. Why not? Because the eternal part that can see, that can taste, that can smell, that can feel the pain is no longer in that body.
The Story of Lazarus and the Rich Man
Let me tell you a story. It is not a parable, but it is a true story about two people who were alive here on earth but they both died. And this will happen to you one day. It is the story of a very rich man and a very poor man named Lazarus.
Luke 16:19-31 tells us: “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”
This true story came from the mouth of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Almighty Father in the Gentile setting, about two thousand years ago. So clearly, it is not a parable, but a true story depicting and describing two people—one very rich and one very poor.
The very rich man was clothed in fine linen and purple and he ate sumptuously every day. But Lazarus was so poor that he lay under the table of the rich man and picked the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, he had no Philhealth that is why the dogs became came and nursed his wounds by licking him.
And then the story says both of them died—the rich man and Lazarus. When Lazarus died and breathed his last he had the physical condition of a poor man. He had no Philhealth, no medical care, no doctor, and so he died with nothing. But that is what we know about his physical state. Let us look into what we don’t know. It is the Lord, our Almighty God, our Savior, who tells us about the unknown.
The Word of God says that after Lazarus died angels came and took Lazarus and brought him to paradise to the bosom of Abraham and was comforted forever in heaven.
Man’s Death is Appointed
The rich man died as well. And do you know where he died? He died at St. Luke’s Medical City. You cannot afford to go there if you are not rich. He was so rich that he had twelve to fifteen doctors who took care of him. He even promised to give them half of his wealth if they could extend his life because his life is very precious. He has his businesses, his billions, his gold and all his properties.
But the Word of God says in Hebrew 9:27: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
When it is your time to die, not even twelve doctors can revive you. So the rich man also breathed his last breath and when he opened his eyes, he opened them to the unknown. This is the spiritual reality I am talking about. This is the reason why I am here and I am relevant to the world today because I would like to make you aware of the preparation that you have to make here on this earth so that when you depart from this life you have somewhere to go. And that somewhere is not hell.
The Spiritual Reality that is Unknown
The Word of God said that when the rich man lifted up his eyes he found himself in the torments of the fires of hell, and when he looked afar off he saw Lazarus in the bosom of Abraham being comforted.
This is the spiritual reality that we don’t know about. We only came to know about it because our Almighty Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, told us about this spiritual reality where you and I will be going.
Remember that we are talking about souls now. Both the rich man’s and Lazarus’ physical bodies were buried and these are now their souls talking.
So the rich man cried, “Father Abraham, send Lazarus and let him dip the tip of his finger in water and let him cool my tongue because it is so hot where I am.”
Imagine yourself there together with the rich man. Imagine you are there for eternity. Can I describe eternity to you? Eternity has not yet begun because eternity has no beginning and has no end. As I talk today, that rich man, who has no salvation, is still there and this story was revealed to us two thousand years ago.
Abraham said to the rich man, “My Son, in your lifetime you received good things but Lazarus only evil things.”
This is a depiction of those who are serving the Almighty Father truthfully, honestly and sincerely. And those who are wantonly living their life with disregard and wanton unrighteousness, lapping life up as if there is no tomorrow, as if there is no hell and as if there is no eternity. What happened to the rich man is a warning to people like these who think they will live forever.
But for people like you who, when you serve the Father, are persecuted, are maligned, and have not received any praise or any good thing from men, although you are doing something good for the Lord, don’t worry because your final destiny will be forever in heaven together with Him.
Your Destiny is Final after Death
But for those who wantonly live in sin and wickedness because they have the power and the wealth to do so, this is a warning to you because you too will die one day, just as the rich man had died. You will also come to the inevitable at the end of your life and you will need someone to save you because you cannot save yourself. Money cannot save you.
So this man, who was so rich and had everything, looked up and said, “That cannot be!” Abraham said, “You receive good things and Lazarus evil things. Now you are tormented and he is comforted. And besides there is a gulf fixed between us. Those that are there, cannot come over here and those that are here cannot go over there.”
So when you die your destiny is final. No prayers to the dead will be able to change your destiny.
There are people who pray for the dead. They would approach people who visit the cemetery on November 1 and ask: “Is this your dead love one?”
“Give me fifty pesos and I’ll pray for him.” And then they would pray and wail and cry so that the loved one who is in hell, through their prayers, would transfer to heaven.
That is foolishness because when you die, the Word of God says, your destiny is final.
Now is the time for you to change your destiny. Now is the time for you to look at the issue of eternity. This man failed to do that. He said, “So Father Abraham, then send Lazarus to earth. I still have five brothers living on earth, send Lazarus to them and let Lazarus testify to them, least they come to this lake of torment; perhaps if you send someone there who has already seen eternity they would repent.”
But Abraham said, “No, it cannot be because there are prophets. There is Moses, there is the Appointed Son of God. Let them listen to him.”
That is why I am on TV 24-hours a day. Listen to what I am saying because you need this for your soul.
And so the rich man said, “No, Father Abraham, if somebody comes from the dead and makes a miracle perhaps they will listen.”
And Abraham said, “If they will not listen to those that the Father has sent down to earth to preach to the living, they would neither be persuaded even if someone would come from the dead and make a miracle.”
That is the end of the story of these two men.
The Importance of the Soul
The importance of the soul is stated in the Word of God, but it was covered, thwarted, and twisted by those who are so religiously fanatical about their own version of salvation.
This is the true version of salvation because it comes from the mouth of the Savior — the One who saved us, the One who is the truth, our Almighty Father, the Lord Jesus Christ. He said in His Word that when you die your destiny is final. No matter what you do it will not change.
Some traditions teach us that we should pray for the dead. That is useless! It is the dead that pray for the living. Look at the rich man, he remembered his five brothers here on earth. They were also businessman like him. They were so rich, they had billions. They were wantonly living wickedly, they didn’t care about the Word of God, but Lazarus remembered them and remembered that like him, one day, they too will die and face the inevitable.
Maybe some of you are listening and watching TV right now, some of you are watching by FB live streaming, or YouTube live streaming for the first time. Do you know why you are there watching? Maybe you have some friends or loved ones who have been in hell for a millennia of years and are praying for you, that at least once, you can listen to the Gospel Message of Repentance coming from the true messenger of the Father Almighty who will not deceive you.
So even if they are in the torments of the fires of hell, as soon as they learn that you are listening to this broadcast message for the first time, then they are at least a little bit happy that you will not be having a reunion with them in hell.
Your Soul is the Real You
You have a soul. When you are alive, the soul is within you. You can see me, you can understand me, and you can do whatever it is you do every day. The understanding that you have is not because of your brain. When you are dead you still have a brain but it is not functional anymore because the soul that made it function is not there anymore.
But listen at this: in heaven and hell, they can still feel the pain. They can still feel thirst. The rich man begged, “Please let Lazarus dip the tip of his finger in water and let him cool my tongue.”
They can still remember, “Son, remember in your lifetime you have all the good things while Lazarus had all the bad things.” They can remember, they can see, they can feel. That is the real you. Your house here is only a house of clay. The real residence of the house is the soul that is within you. And this physical life of ours was only given three scores and ten years.
So if you are 70 years old now, you are in the pre-departure of your life. If you have more than 70 years already, thank the Father that you are still here and you still have a chance to listen to me and make a choice in your life. He said after 70 years, your life will not be a quality life anymore. He said you will have labor, pain and suffering.
The Stages of Man’s Physical Life
When we were young, we always talked about our toys, our dolls. When we grew a little bit older we talked about school, our clothes and little things in life. When we graduated from elementary we talked about where to go for high school with all of our friends. You are at the best time in your life because you are at the age that you can really enjoy life – not really old, not really young. And then after graduating from high school, the talk is where you will go to college, what courses are you going to take. After college you will be talking about what is profitable for your profession, what business to put up.
At the age of 40 you are a little bit established already in life. You have a house, you have a family, you have a career, you have a business that is on-going, and you are now beginning to reap the fruits of your labor.
At the age of 50, you are accomplished, you have everything that you want; some of you have become wealthy and established. But do you know what you will be talking about among your contemporaries? It will be like this: “Why are you limping?” “I have arthritis.” “What about you?” “I have kidney stones.” “And you?” “I have a problem with my heart.” You are talking about the diseases of your body. And at 60, when you meet together, you will be talking about what medicines you are taking, who is your doctor; you will be talking about the maintenance — how much you are spending per week for your maintenance, who is your cardiologist, who is your urologist.
At 70 you will be talking about insurance and eternal life plans. “When I die where will I be buried?” “What kind of coffin, will and testament?” “Where will I leave all of what I have?”
That is life that is a physical life.
Is this all what life is about? If life is all about that, then you have failed, my friend, because you will leave everything behind when you die.
Our Loyalty should only be to the Almighty Father
Mark 8:36 says, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
The titles of your land that you have procured for yourself are kept in one trolley after another. You own almost the whole world. You have a bank account containing billions. But if you die right now, where will all those titles go and where will all those billions go? They will all be left behind to be fought over by your children and your grandchildren. They will be seeing each other in the court and fighting over what you have left behind.
Is this what life is all about? It is not. If you have made all your accomplishments but you have not prepared for the eternity of your soul, then you have failed miserably. That is why I am here for that purpose. I am the most relevant of all because I will tell you right now, I am not sent by religion, I am not sent by denomination; my loyalty is not to a person, my loyalty is not to an organization, my loyalty is only to the One who came two thousand years ago who gave us a new covenant, the new agreement on how to go to heaven.
The Spiritual Solution
Jesus Christ when He came brought a very simple solution, but nevertheless it is a spiritual solution that you haven’t heard in your life, not from any school of religion, not from any school of thought or denomination. Only the Lord Jesus Christ and I have come with the purity of the Word of God that He came to deliver to us. This purity of the Word was adulterated by people who put up establishments, not of salvation, but of deception.
I came to purify all these that is why I became an Appointed Son of God. My loyalty is only to the Lord Jesus Christ and to His Word. But I cannot say I am loyal to Him if I do not teach you obedience to the Word of the Father. And I cannot teach you obedience unless there is a transformation, a regeneration that comes from within you using your freedom of choice.
I presented the message to you and the message is so simple. It just says “repent” because what happened in the beginning of creation? We were deceived by our first parents. By the disobedience of one all of us died spiritually, but by the obedience of one, from the fallen Adamic race, all of us will become righteous and all of us will be saved.
My first father in the flesh was Adam, but he was deceived and disobeyed God and all of us inherited the serpent seed of disobedience to the Father’s Will.
I also am of the same vein, a man from the fallen Adamic race. When the Father isolated me in six years in two mountains, particularly in the prayer mountain, where I was for five years, He taught me and I used my freedom of choice to follow His Will. I said, “Father whatever happens my heart is fixed, my mind is made up, I will follow Your Will.” I succeeded, I overcame and by overcoming I became the Appointed Son of God.
So now, somebody from the fallen Adamic race has inherited heaven. And I am not ashamed to tell you that I am the one. Why do I say that? Because by my obedience all of you will be saved. By my obedience and example, all of you who follow the footsteps of the Appointed Son, salvation can be yours right now. I am the way, the truth and the life and nobody can go to the Father but by me.
Death does not Discriminate Age
When you talk about salvation, many would say, “I am still young, I don’t need that.” But go to the cemetery. Read those epitaphs, what do they say? “This one was born January 1, 2000 died January 5, 2016.” He was sixteen years old.
You will find all kinds of ages in a cemetery. Not only ancient ages like 102 years, whose time was already up a long time ago. You will also find young people, infants, and children.
Death does not discriminate your age. Many young people die from drug overdose. In the United States, those who die this way are most of the time drug addicts, especially those in the entertainment industry. How many of them have overdosed by taking drugs? They died very young because of that.
When death knocks on your door, you cannot say, “No, wait, I am still young!” You cannot say to Mr. Death, “Come tomorrow or maybe next year, or ten years from now, because I am enjoying my life right now.” If it is appointed for you to die tonight, you will not wake up tomorrow. You will be dead.
And after death you will be finding a place somewhere in heaven or in hell.
The Message of Salvation is very simple
My message is very simple but it is the secret to your salvation. All you have to do is to come and repent and say, “Not my will! I will not be a god to myself anymore, I will focus on your will, Father.” And I am here to teach you about His Will.
The Words of the Lord Jesus Christ in the New Testament, they are what we call ‘the new agreement.’ Come and be born again in the spirit, not born again in the flesh, but in the spirit.
When you are born again in the spirit, your face does not change; it is the spirit within you that changes from being disobedient and not knowing the will of the Father, to an obedient soul coming to know the will of the Father.
You are born in the spirit of those Words, just like me. I don’t only have a body, I don’t only have a soul, but I have a spirit as well that comes from the Father Almighty through the Words that I have heard from Him.
Why are these Words so important?
John 6:63 says, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
It is not enough for you to have a soul and a body only but still have the inherited spirit of disobedience, the spirit of Satan Lucifer the devil, continuing to dwell in you. That is why if you don’t know this message, you have the spirit, but you don’t have the spirit of God. It is the spirit of Satan Lucifer the devil that is in you. When you die like the rich man, hell will welcome you. And then you will say, “Why am I here, I am a good person. I may have been rich but I was good. Why am I here?” Because you failed to receive the message. Now there is no reason for you to fail. Modern technology is all over the world. With one click of a button, all FB users can watch me live streaming all over the world. So there is no reason for you not to be able to hear this message.
The Physical Life is Just a Dream
People are so enamored about this life. This physical life is so mesmerizing to them. They don’t know that if you have only this life as your hope, it is just a dream. Anything that does not last is temporal, and is just a dream. Anything that is eternal, that is the true life.
Seventy years is a dream, it is just like a vapor of smoke. Now you see it, now you don’t.
You are lucky if you get to reach that age. Some of you are already in the pre-departure area of life and you don’t know it. You look very well on the outside, but you do not know that you have two ages — the one inside and the one outside. By looking at you on outside you are 47 years old. Very young. But when a doctor is consulted and he looks at your inside, the doctor will say, “He is 89 years old.” “Why doc?” “Because if he is not careful, next year he will be dead. He has only one year to live.”
Me, I look 67 on the outside, but I am 25 years in the inside. That is why many people ask me, “What is the secret to your longevity? Have you found the fountain of youth?” My answer is simple: Serve the Father like I do. It does not matter what your age is on the outside, what is important is that you are ready to face your Creator, that you are prepared to face Him any time you leave this physical life.
Many people are so enamored with this life. They want wealth, power, fame, everything that this world can offer and they are so focused on wanting and gaining it they do not think about the life that comes after.
True riches are not found here. If you want the true riches, understand what Revelation 3: 17 says:
“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”
People are so enamored with money as if that is all what life is about. The physical is all that you know, but look at what you are spiritually. Look at the life that you will be going to. Look at who you are spiritually. Look at your spiritual life.
Ask me. I am physically Apollo C. Quiboloy, born in Davao City, April 25, 1950. I died spiritually in Kitbog. The old spirit died there and the new one came out. This is the new one right now. Physically you know who I am but spiritually, only the Kingdom citizens know who I am.
Do I have a place in heaven? I am telling you, I have the key to heaven. You will not go there if you will not go through me. Memorize my face because on your deathbed you will be looking for my face. I hope that it is not too late for you. So befriend me right now, not because of who I am physically, but because of who I am spiritually.
The rich man did not know who he was spiritually because he did not have a spiritual life. He had a physical life, he had a financial life, he had a corporate life but he did not have a spiritual life.
Lazaro, on the other hand, did not have anything…he had nothing in the physical life, nothing in his financial life, nothing in everything that this life could offer but he had the most important thing — he had a spiritual life. The rich man knew only what is known here but he did not know the unknown. He had nothing spiritually.
Poverty is not a License to go to Heaven
Try to picture this man spiritually. There are many rich people who are like that. But many of you are poor in this life, and poor also in the life after. How pitiful you are.
You poor people who keep shouting, “We are poor! We have human rights!” but you steal and have not been born again in the spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will, you are double dead. The rich are better off because they are enjoying their riches in this world, but you who are poor here and also poor there, where will you go?
So even poverty and being poor is not a license to go to heaven.
Lazarus was very poor but he was serving God. But many of the poor have the attitude of Satan. Maybe for the communists, poverty is the license to rebel. We were also poor at one time, but my father in the flesh never taught us to covet the property of others. He did not teach us to steal and to attack those that have riches.
Kingdom citizen are taught to do honest work. We do not covet, we do not steal. All the properties that you see in the Kingdom was striven for by the Kingdom citizens. We are working faithfully, honestly and are united in investing in the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. We do not envy or covet others; we are not angry at them because they have property.
Revelation 3:18 says: “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
Gold tried in the Fire
Buy of me gold tried in the fire, 24k gold. What is that gold? The Word of God, the unadulterated Word of God.
Did you know that when I received these Manna of Revelations, I did not receive them sitting down and eating apples? In Tamayong, in five years, I was there in the midst of a fiery storm of persecution, trials and temptation, but every day I also received the Manna of Revelations. Every day the Father brought me into heaven. Every day of those five years was like hell to me. I call it the burning fire of my affliction. But then I received this revelations, I received this teaching, and this truth that I am delivering to you. This is gold – doctrine and truth that has been tried by fire.
If we talk about the richest person in the world, it is the Appointed Son. Nobody is richer than me, that is why I was made the Appointed Son. I am the owner of heaven right now, I have the key.
You cannot enter there unless you go through the one who has the key.
The key was taken away from religion and denomination because they made their own way. And so the Father made an Appointed Son that is loyal to Him, who will not cover His Words, who will not adulterate it, who will not twist it, who will not set it aside but preach it as it was preached two thousand years ago by my Father in the spirit.
The Father gave me the key and then He showed me the Book of Life. And He said, “Write everyone you want to write there.” I saw names that were stamped with gold and I saw names that are not yet stamped with gold but are written there but can still be erased.
As I was flipping the pages, I saw many, many vacant pages with nothing written there and the Father told me, “Want whosoever you want.” Do you want me to write your name there? Follow my message. Be born again in the spirit of obedience in the Father’s Will. Repent and become like me in the spirit so you will become very rich, like me.
The White Raiment of the New Spirit
“… and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear…”
White raiment means purity. Our hearts are clean, we do not have the serpent seed anymore. We have salvation and our heart is free to do the will of the Almighty Father.
That is a true son and daughter of the Father who says, “My heart is fixed, my mind is made up. I will follow the Father’s Will no matter what.”
That is white raiment. If you go to eternity but don’t have this message, you will go there naked, shameful. Do you think that clothing will cover your nakedness there? No, it will not.
When you imbibe this message and repent but then turn askew, that means that you still have the spirit of disobedience. The spirit of disobedience is a robe of Satan Lucifer the devil that makes you dirty.
Take that robe off and put on the white raiment of a new spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will. And then you will grow in the spirit and your heart is fixed, your mind is made up no matter what —temptation, trials— nothing will separate you from the love of God. You will become like me, having a white robe every day, ready to go with Him every day of your life.
“…and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, so that your blindness will be taken away.”
What does this blindness mean? It is not the blindness of the physical eye, but is the deception of Satan that made you blind to the truth of the Word. When you see the Word, when you read it and don’t oppose it but receive it, then you have seen the light just like me. But if you read the Word and you don’t believe it, but believe instead in your traditions and the things of your doctrine that oppose the Word of God, then you are blind, you are naked, you have nothing.
I don’t want you to go eternity like that. That is why He sent me here to enrich you spiritually first. The Word of God says, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.” (Mathew 6:33)
If you received His Words, you have a white robe. If you receive the Word of the Father Almighty through His Appointed Son, your blindness is taken away. You are able to see the light, like me. And so you are ready.
When you walk in this life every day, you are happy knowing that whatever happens to you in your physical life, you are ready spiritually because your life in the spirit is the true life.
The True Life
Seventy years is just a dream. Anything temporal is a dream. This life, whoever you are, whatever your station in life today, rich or poor, is just a dream. You will leave it all behind, just like the rich man who woke up in the reality of the spiritual life. His physical life was a dream, and now he is living in the reality of the spiritual. He will be there forever.
Anything that lasts forever is the true life. This life physically is a dream. When you die you will wake up and wherever you wake up is your true life.
The reality of your life is where your soul will spend eternity. If you die right now, where are you going? Where is your soul going? Can you answer me truthfully that you are going to heaven?
“I counsel thee to buy of me gold…”
When you sit there for hours listening to me you are buying gold. And I will not sell you fake gold. This is true gold tried in the fire.
“That thou mayest rich…”
True riches is where you are going to stay forever. You cannot buy gold in the spirit anywhere; you can only buy it from me.
The doctrine of the Holy Three is fake gold! The true gold is the Holy One.
All of these things are spiritual things and are not known in the physical. But the spiritual is where you are going. That is where I am leading you. What I am teaching you is all that you need to go with me so that you will be rich in heaven when you become a son and a daughter of the Father Almighty.
When I ask you, who are you in the spirit? Are you a son or a daughter of the Father? If you are not then you will not own a house there. You will not own the golden city called heaven.
That is why I am here. He sent me. I am the Father’s love and compassion to this wicked humanity today, that in the midst of this world of wickedness and sin, the Father has sent his Appointed Son, to be His love and compassion towards humanity.
It is very simple. Look at your soul right now while it is still present in your body. While the soul is inside you can still see me, you can hear me, you can feel the pain. Don’t wait for your death for your soul to find out who you are. The way you understand right now is the way you will understand there also. You already have a glorified body, whether in heaven or in hell. It’s up to you, the decision is yours.
Look at yourself. You have a physical life, a social life, a financial life, an intellectual life, a corporate life, but what about a spiritual life? Do you have spiritual life?
Some of you mistake the spiritual life for denominational or religious life.
If you have religious life, it is not a guarantee to go to heaven. If you have a denominational life, it is not a guarantee to go to heaven.
Having a spiritual life means obedience to the Will of the Father. So if you only know Him by His Words but don’t obey it, you only have a religious and denominational life. The denominational and religious life is not accepted in heaven. Only the spiritual life of obedience to the Father’s Will is accepted there.
Matthew 7:21 says: “Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
Are you born in the spirit of His Word? Are you obedient to His Words? Did you repent?
These are the issues of eternity that you have to answer right now. Do not neglect them, do not set them aside because you don’t know the time of your death. It might be tonight. It might be tomorrow. Or it might be the next day.
Today is the day of your salvation. Today is the day for you to decide. Make a decision right now to become a Kingdom citizen, a son or a daughter of the Father, obedient only to His Will.
