Speaking to the delegates of the 23rd International Kingdom Leader’s Convention (IKLC), Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy discussed at length about the structure and nature of the Kingdom Commonwealth, and how the Father’s Kingdom Nation is being managed.
Soundly and fully based on Scripture, the Appointed Son of God expounded on the fact that is the Father Almighty’s plan from the very beginning to establish His Kingdom upon this earth and to rule over man as King, through a Son appointed to be ruler over all.
But when man was separated from God because of disobedience, he lost communion and fellowship with God. He lost access to the Father’s wealth and riches. “Instead of rulership, he became concerned with self-preservation, and inclined to seek his well-being,” said Pastor Apollo.
He emphasized that in the Kingdom Nation, the Father’s original plan is already being implemented.
“This is the Kingdom mindset: there is a King who rules over a territory. In this territory, He wants man to become citizens of the Kingdom where He, as the king provides for all of their needs,” ex said. “He is personally committed and involved in their welfare.”
This, he stressed, is exactly what is happening in the Kingdom Nation today.
Pastor Apollo also underlined that in the structure of religion and denomination, where there is still politics, self-interest is still the name of the game. “But in the Kingdom Nation, sons and daughters put everything personal aside – material, financial, physical, personal – so that they can seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness first,” he attested.
This Kingdom attitude is in fulfillment of Matthew 6:33, which says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
“In the world’s system – be it a monarchy, a democracy, or whatnot – it is all intended for the self. In the Kingdom, our concern is only our commitment, loyalty, dedication, obedience and faithfulness to our Almighty Father, who is our King,” Pastor Apollo added.
He stressed that when an individual enters into the Kingdom of God on earth through repentance, and then undergoes the process of spiritual growth until he reaches the level of becoming a son or daughter, he is then entrusted with the Father’s business on earth.
“When you become like the Son, you reach the level where you own everything,” he stated. “You inherit everything. You don’t have to work. You don’t have to worry about your food, your house, your car, what you will need to spend for the day. Everything is provided by the Father. You cease to worry!”
Pastor Apollo assured everyone listening to him over the international TV broadcast, that the Father wants to give us the Kingdom, it is His great pleasure to give us the Kingdom (Luke 12:32). “He has appointed to us a Kingdom that shall never be destroyed,” he pronounced.
Pastor Apollo’s elucidation of this matter continued in his fellowship with the Convention participants which followed in the evening.
High and filled to the brim with the Word of God, the delegates were joyful and exuberant despite the full day they had.
They travelled the same night to the Covenant Mountain Prayer Garden of Eden Restored (CMPGOER) in Brgy. Tamayong, Pastor Apollo’s birthplace.
The CMPGOER is also a historical Kingdom site because this is where Pastor Apollo was tried and tested in fiery persecution for five years and then declared a Son after overcoming everything thrown his way. In the CMPGOER, IKLC delegates will be having more experiences and activities that will lead to a deeper understanding of the Father’s plan for man.
