Everybody knows the story of the Good Samaritan. Most children learn it early in grade school. But as with many parables from the Bible as taught by the religions of the Church Age, understanding of this age-old parable is ever so shallow… until Pastor Apollo Quiboloy.
The most revolutionary preacher of this generation, Pastor Apollo has once again overthrown every common understanding of this great lesson from the Lord Jesus Christ. He said, in his recent preaching, “I am the fulfillment of the Good Samaritan.”
The story found in Luke 10:25-37 tells us how a man fell into the hands of thieves and was left by the roadside half-dead. A priest came by, but when he saw the injured man, he crossed to the other side and just passed him by. In the same manner, a Levite came. He, too, simply walked by.
But along came a Samaritan — a man from the most reviled people, wanted neither by the Jews nor by the Gentiles. He pitied the wounded man. Instead of moving past, he bound-up the man’s wounds and brought him to an inn to be cared for.
He even gave money to the innkeeper and promised to pay him back of any expense he would spend for the man’s care. He said, “Just bring him back to life.”
As he ended the telling of the parable, Jesus Christ asked, “Among the three, who do you think was the wounded man’s neighbor?”
Without a doubt, it is the Good Samaritan.
A Spiritual Fulfillment
Pastor Apollo went on to explain that the parable has both a spiritual and physical fulfillment in the life of the Appointed Son today.
It is a spiritual fulfillment because only the ministry of the Appointed Son has given man a way to mend his broken relationship with his Creator, the Almighty Father, our Lord Jesus Christ. This relationship was lost when man disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden.
Religions and denominations of the Church Age ignored, hid, and covered the most important lesson. They failed to teach true repentance and obedience to the will of the Almighty Father — which would restore man back to God.
“Nothing was taught to us that we should return to our true spiritual life, that the Father is our connection to heaven, not Satan. They skipped that. But the Good Samaritan came,” Pastor Apollo Quiboloy said.
The Good Samaritan took us up, reviled though he was on every side. He bound up our wounds of disobedience by teaching us the true way to salvation, which is obedience to words of our Lord Jesus Christ. He looked not at a man’s character, at who or what he is, but saw only his soul that is in need.
“So, on TV every day, we are bringing to life those who were robbed by Satan Lucifer the devil,” Pastor Apollo affirmed. “From a dead spiritual life to a living spiritual life through obedience. This is restoration.”
A Physical Fulfillment
Physically the mission of the Good Samaritan is also fulfilled in the life of the Appointed Son.
“We are also helping our fellow citizens who are in need. And when we help, we do not ask who you are. I do not ask what religion you are. I do not ask if you maligned me or not. I do not ask if you are a basher. I do not ask if you are against me. I do not ask if you are from KAPA who are opposing and slandering me. I do not ask you any of that. All I see is, do you need my help?” Pastor Apollo Quiboloy said.
“If you need it, I will give it to you,” said Pastor Apollo. “Because that is what the Father said — love your neighbor as yourself. Your neighbor is the person in need. So in times of disasters, earthquakes, floods, typhoons, we are there,” he asserted.
One of the most pilloried public personalities in the world today, Pastor Apollo Quiboloy has torn down the age-old belief systems of present-day religions in the Christian world without fear of consequences. He has single-handedly polarized believers into two opposing camps.
On one side are those who love him for cutting through the false doctrine and dogmas of the Church age and fearlessly speaking the truth. And on the other, those who hate him for exposing their deceits and call him a false Christ in retaliation.
Estimated to have more than 7 million worldwide following, Pastor Apollo is the most influential spiritual leader in the world today.
