Taking the bull by its horns once again, Pastor Apollo addressed the Church Age of religion and denomination in his Sunday broadcast of Sounds of Worship, and uncovered another age-old deception of the devil – that the Church is a building or an institution.
As one appointed to expose and destroy the works of Satan Lucifer the devil, called the ‘deceiver of the brethren’, Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, the Appointed Son of God, disabused his viewers and listeners from the default mentality of most of humanity that the “church” is a physical structure, a man-made organization, or a religion.
“Let us erase that from our minds that when we say “church” we are talking about religion,” Pastor Apollo declared. “The church is not a religious institution nor building; it is the body that obeys Jesus Christ.”
Expanding on the topic, the Appointed Son explained that the church is the body that obeys the head, who is Jesus Christ. “The church is the residence of the Almighty Father, who is the Son and the faithful sons and daughters of the Father.”
Pastor Apollo pointed out that when Jesus Christ comes, He will not take up a building. He will take up man; He will take up His Son, the true residence of His Spirit.
Quoting Col 1:18, he said, “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
The good pastor rebuked the Church Age for using the Name of Jesus Christ, for preaching His Words, but never obeying them. “How can Jesus Christ be your head when you do not obey His Words?” he asked.
He enumerated how religions and denominations lay claim on many things: on how they are the biggest and the oldest in the world, how they are undefeated in debate, how they are saved by grace… but they never preach obedience to the Word of God.
Further castigating them for accusing him of being a false Christ and a false prophet, Pastor Apollo said that He in fact, is the only one from the fallen Adamic race who stands and defends the Words of Father and preaches absolute obedience.
Every religion and denomination in the Church Age have Jesus Christ as their “head”, he said, but the question is whether they have the true Jesus Christ, or a false Jesus Christ.
“I too have Jesus Christ and am likewise under scrutiny. But you will know if the Jesus Christ that they preach is the true Jesus Christ by His Words,” he asserted. “You will know a tree by its fruit.”
He castigated a particular preacher on TV whom he commonly refers to as ‘Talaba’, and now by the latest inanity to come out of this preacher’s mouth.
In a recent TV broadcast, this foolish preacher is heard to have said that now men can bear children, citing the seahorse as an example of the male specie bearing offspring.
Pastor refers to him now as ‘seahorse.’
The Appointed Son castigated this preacher for changing and manipulating the Word of God to fit his depraved lifestyle and deceiving many, especially for going against the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 6:9 that says:
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.”
But this foolish preacher, known to be a practicing homosexual, preaches that God cannot change what He has made – man, woman, and homosexuals – declaring this to be natural. He teaches his congregation and his listeners that homosexuality is allowed and permitted by God.
Underlining how contrary this is to Jesus words, Pastor quoted Romans 1:27, which says, “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.”
He assured sons and daughters all over the world, and all his listeners, that in the Kingdom Nation of God on earth, the words of the Apostle Paul are alive. “Here, we will stand by the Words of Jesus Christ. We will not betray His Words. We are fierce in our obedience to His Words.”
Pastor Apollo reminded his global audience, that the teachings of the true Jesus Christ always redounds to repentance and obedience to the Father’s Will.
He warned that any teaching that does not redound to repentance and obedience is a deception – wisdom that does not come from above, but is earthy, sensual and devilish (James 3:15-17).
