I thank the Almighty Father, giving Him glory, praise and honor, thru the Appointed Son, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy, for this very privilege given to testify the goodness of the Almighty Father in my life.
My name is Jose Maria Gonzales, presently the Dean of the School of Continuing Education at the Philippine Women’s University. A very devoted Catholic since I was a child, I was raised up by the Jesuits, and everything in my mind, before I entered the Kingdom, was taught by the Jesuits, by the Catholic Church.
There was a time in my life, being in the Catholic Church, being trained by the Jesuits, I had the inkling to enter the priesthood. But the Almighty Father had another plan for me. So the plans for the priesthood did not happen.
Being a devoted Catholic, every Sunday I heard mass. However, sometime in 2005 to 2007, during those years, the experience I had was so different from the previous years. There was total dryness, there was no blessing coming. Even though how hard I prayed, giving everything I had during mass, still there was total dryness. I asked, why? I had to ask that and I received the answer, how? Through the TV ministry of our beloved Pastor, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy, the Appointed Son.
If the Almighty Father had not used my wife to push me to listen to the message of Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy thru his programs Powerline and Give Us this Day, I would not have changed my paradigm. I had to listen, I had to hear His message until such time, on December 30, 2008.
I didn’t tell my wife about this. In the spirit, I decided to accept Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy as the Appointed Son of God. My last question had been answered, because before that I could not understand, neither could I receive and accept that Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy was the Son of God. But on December 30, I decided that He is really the Son of God.
After December 30, I decided to pay a visit to Davao, attended the Thanksgiving and Worship Presentation (TWP) and tried to be enlightened more. I went back to Manila and on April 11, I allowed myself to be baptized. I remember before the baptism, my wife used to encourage me to attend the TWP. Coming from the Catholic Church, the one hour is long, the three hours is very long, but after some time, the three hours was not enough for me to hear the message of Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy.
To my fellow Ateneans, although I understand the training we had and yet it is not difficult to shift our thinking to this kind of paradigm. We remove everything, allow ourselves to open our minds, our hearts, then you will learn the new revelation message of salvation. Of course, I’m inviting my mentors, the Jesuit priest also, to join the Kingdom.
Really the Almighty Father, thru the Appointed Son has shown His graciousness, His goodness to everyone, including myself, my family, everyone. Everyone is invited to the Kingdom, just repent.
All for this I give back to our Almighty Father the thanksgiving, the honor, the praise and the glory through the Appointed Son, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy.
