What Repentance Means
Repentance is a simple word. But in the Kingdom of God in Heaven and on Earth, repentance goes beyond feeling sorry for a transgression committed. In the Kingdom, repentance is a covenant, an agreement between God and man. It is a promise and commitment that a man makes to the Father Almighty, using his freedom of choice, when he says, ‘Not my will Father, but Thy Will be done in my life’.
Absolute and genuine repentance requires a surrender of the old spirit of rebellion and disobedience, that serpent seed of Satan, that was planted in the heart of mankind when Adam and Eve disobeyed God. It entails a dethroning of that old spirit and the enthroning a new one – the spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will.
Pastor Apollo teaches that only through genuine repentance can the broken relationship between man and God be restored.
Only then can he or she be called a son or a daughter of the Father (John 1:12).
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:John 1:12
Without repentance, everything else – all doctrine, every tradition, every casting out of demons, all prophesy, every grand and lavish cathedral built, and every man-made by-law is moot. The Father Almighty will only recognize those who have obeyed His Will (Matthew 7:21-23).
21 Not every one 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.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.Matthew 7:21-23
Becoming the Appointed Son of God
Many have asked what right has he to claim to be the standard of righteousness in this world today.
The answer is quite simple and logical if one would only listen with an open mind, and of course, an open heart.
Pastor Apollo Quiboloy was the first man to be called by the Almighty Father to the true and genuine repentance. He was the first man to have endured all the fiery trials of persecution and hardship and to have overcome them all without breaking his covenant with the Father. He was the first man to finally eject the serpent seed, breaking the chain of sin by his absolute obedience to the Father’s will.
Romans 5:19 says, “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”
It is for this reason that the Almighty Father anointed him and made him His Appointed Son in these last days.
And by following in the life and example of Pastor Apollo, millions of sons and daughters are in the process of becoming appointed sons and daughters of God, like him.
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
By becoming the Appointed Son of God, he had broken another religious and denominational interpretation of a Biblical event: the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
In his revelation of the truth, he teaches that the Father Almighty, our Lord Jesus Christ, will not come in pomp and glory, with chariots and a heavenly host of angels blowing the last trumpet call. He will not take up His children in a blink of an eye in what religion calls the ‘rapture’. No, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, he says, is already happening today.
From the very beginning, he has taught that the Father Almighty, who is a Spirit, will never dwell in a structure made by men’s hands. He will never live in any cathedral or church building because His original plan when He created Adam (man) was to dwell in Adam himself. Adam was meant to be the Father’s temple, the body wherein He would reside. He was meant to be the manifestation of the unseen God. He was meant to be the expression of God’s goodness and righteousness on this earth.
But all of these plans were aborted when Satan deceived first Eve, and then Adam, in the Garden of Eden. The infant seed of righteousness and obedience that was in them was dislodged and ejected. And what replaced it in man’s heart was the serpent seed, that disobedient spirit of sin that is in now in every man, woman, and child born of the fallen race of Adam. In other words, in all of humankind.
But because he had won and resisted every effort of Satan to repeat history, and many more are following after him, man is finally restored back to the Almighty Father’s original plan. Man is righteous once more. Like a desecrated temple that was squatted by the devil, man is finally cleansed and sanctified, ready for the real owner, the Almighty Father, to come and occupy it. And He is doing so right now, one man at a time. This is what religion and denomination cannot understand or accept, that this is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
The Second Coming is happening in millions of sons and daughters of the Father in the Kingdom Nation of God on earth today, beginning with the Appointed Son of God, as the firstborn, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy.
He is the first among the fallen Adamic race who, by genuine repentance, surrendered his own human will, committed to enthrone the will of the Almighty Father in his life, gone through trials and testings to prove his commitment, and has passed the test and was declared a Son (Revelations 21:7).
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.Revelations 21:7
He is an ordinary man like us but he is now the Father’s Standard of Salvation in these last days, the Father’s New Creation, His Temple, His Dwelling Place, His Body, the Manifestation of the Unseen God.
He has become the Inheritor of all things — the Sonship and dominion that was promised to Adam in the beginning. He is the Almighty Father’s Representative on this earth today.
Anybody who listens to him, believes and repents, will enter into the Kingdom of God on Earth today, and after judgment, unto eternity.
