Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy celebrates 45 years of his Anointing as the Appointed Son of God in a special Give Us This Day episode, Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
One of Pastor Apollo’s much loved TV programs, Give Us This Day broadcasts live all over the globe through Sonshine Media Network International TV channels worldwide.
Exactly 45 years ago, on a memorable Wednesday night, Pastor Apollo was anointed by the Almighty Father in a small chapel in Brgy. Tamayong, a small settlement in the foothills of Mt. Apo. According to him, this happened after a year of the Father revealing Himself to him in dreams and visions.
Only a young man at that time but already a famous evangelist in his denomination, Pastor Apollo came to preach that night at the small chapel for the midweek service. While standing on the pulpit preaching about the fruits of the spirit, he saw in a naked eye vision, two angels of the Lord come through the doors and up to the pulpit to pour anointed oil all over him.
The account is a true one. During the live broadcast of the program, a short documentary was presented portraying the events and eye witness accounts of some of the members who were with him that very significant night more than four decades ago.
Not all of the eyewitnesses saw the vision itself, but many felt the overwhelming and very strong presence of the Lord. They all testify of the divine fragrance that was poured over the Son which they all experienced.
After describing again the anointing to his global audience, Pastor Apollo reminded them that those events had a specific purpose in the Father’s plan. And this was for him to become the first born Son of God in this generation, a model of the Father’s completed salvation work in man.
“The essence of my anointing is to become the point of salvation,” says Pastor Apollo. “I represent the fallen Adamic race. I became the fulfillment of Romans 5:19 which says, ‘For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.’”
He then proceeds to relate why religion and denomination failed to produce a Son, which is what the Father sought to produce since the beginning – a body in whom He can dwell fully. But they hardened their heart against the teaching of Jesus Christ as they are hardening their heart to the messages that Pastor Apollo now brings today.
“Religion failed because they denied His words that we can become sons of God,” says the pastor. “According to them, you cannot become a son while living on earth. That is why the complete transformation of man did not occur among them.” Along with Pastor Apollo’s fellowship of the Word of God on the program, letters and text messages were read. Beautiful songs and music, a staple of Give Us This Day, were also performed to give honor to the Almighty Father especially in this special celebration.
