In a very passionate delivery of the Manna of Revelation during the King is Coming Tour Cagayan de Oro City leg, Pastor Apollo Quiboloy once more denounced those who seek financial and material prosperity before seeking God’s Kingdom and His righteousness.
Hitting hard on the KAPA Community Ministry which was recently shut down by President Rodrigo Duterte for the non-bailable offense of estafa, Pastor Apollo condemned the get-rich quick scheme of the said group and its leader for its use of God’s Word and His Name in deceiving and misleading people to put their trust in money rather than on the blessings of the Almighty Father.
He upbraided its founder for leading people to seek financial and material wealth before seeking salvation for their soul.
Citing Matthew 6:33 wherein believers are urged to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness so that “all these things” – material and financial wealth – will be added unto them, Pastor Apollo assured those listening to him over the worldwide live broadcast that the opposite is never true.
“The ox always goes before the cart, never the other way around,” stressed the beloved Pastor.
“Wealth that does not come from the blessing of the Almighty Father bring nothing but pain and sorrow,” he maintained. “But blessings that come from God bring only happiness,” he said.
He pronounced that if it brings evil and destruction, that wealth is not from God.
He told his worldwide viewers that if they want the kind of blessings and prosperity that lasts, to wait upon the Lord, to be patient, and not seek short cuts because the Lord blesses those that diligently seek him.
He also reminded the crowd that every man will reach the end of his life whether he is prepared for it or not, and that his destination is final. “There can be no transferring from where you are,” declared Pastor Apollo.
He especially reproved those who bash him on social media to watch out for the judgment that will visit them and their families.
“No weapon will prevail against me,” he warned. “This is my heritage as the Appointed Son of God. Every idle word that you utter, you will answer for in the day of judgment,” he added.
“This is the Day of Judgment!” he announced. “Everything that you said against me is not forgotten but will all go return to you.”
He enjoined everyone to lay up heavenly and not earthly treasure by listening to the Appointed Son, surrendering the disobedient spirit by repentance, and by obeying the Father’s Will in their life.
He recounted 1 Timothy 6:17, which charged the rich in the world not to trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives richly all things to enjoy.
The Special Thanksgiving and Worship Presentation ended on a high note with the awarding of several plaques of recognition and appreciation to Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy from the local governments of Lanao and Misamis.
