In another LIVE episode of Give Us This Day, the Appointed Son of God, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy, once more explained the essence of the New Covenant, which are the spiritual laws that were given by the Almighty Father in His Word.
Over and over in his preaching on his daily TV programs aired over Sonshine Media Network International, Pastor Apollo has emphasized that we cannot receive salvation unless we sign the New Covenant with our repentance.
Repentance means that we surrender our human will to the Will of our Father. We make a promise by saying, “From now on not my will but Your Will, Father, be done in my life!”
Pastor Apollo teaches that our Almighty Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the testator, already signed the other side of this covenant, also called an agreement, or testament – with his death.
In Jewish custom, a testament (or agreement, or covenant) is only valid when both parties sign it.
As the Appointed Son, Pastor Apollo has shown the example how to sign the New Covenant, how to repent, how to overcome all things to obey the Father’s Will no matter what.
In his Give Us This Day program, the beloved pastor expounded, “We have to sign the Covenant with our commitment, dedication, loyalty and obedience to it,” he said.
“Loyalty means that whether you live or die, you will follow what the Covenant tells you. You will stick to what the testator, our Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior, tells you to do,” he continued.
Pastor Apollo said that some of God’s laws are very difficult to obey. “It is so hard for us to follow, ‘love your enemy’ ‘do good to them that hate you and persecute you,’ but we have to follow it because that is the law.”
He asserted that we cannot do this unless we are born again in the new spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will. But he assured all his listeners worldwide, that the Father will give us that new spirit capable of obeying His Will.
Citing Ephesians 36:26-27, Pastor Apollo said that the Father promised to give us a new heart.
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”
He affirmed that when we obey His Will, that is when the Kingdom of Heaven has come upon us, as His Word says, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
“That is when we will understand the full meaning of Matthew 7:21-27,” said the Son.
HIS WORDS ARE REVEALED TO EACH ONE
Threading through His preaching in recent weeks, Pastor stressed how the Father’s Words, his laws revealed through the Appointed Son in these last days, can never be understood unless the Father himself gives us understanding.
Pastor Apollo highlighted how very important is the Word of the Father in Matthew 7:21-27 because these are the sentiments of the Father and these Words will judge man in the last day.
It says that not everyone that call upon the Father, saying “Lord, Lord!” will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but only they that do His Will.
“If the Father did not send and Appointed Son, we will not know this,” says Pastor. “He needed one from the human race, the fallen race of Adam, to not only preach His Word, but to obey it, to commit to it, to be faithful to it, and to be loyal to it no matter what!”
Pastor Apollo Quiboloy is the first human being born in the spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will and he is producing many sons and daughters all over the world.
