“What does it mean to be saved? Does believing in Jesus Christ enough to save your soul?”

The Storyline of Salvation Completed
By Editorial Team
About This Post
Pastor Apollo Quiboloy debunks the popular belief of religion and denomination that man is already saved (as if by default) because Jesus Christ died on the cross.
Jesus Christ, as the Begotten Son in the Jewish Age, drunk of the bitter cup and died on the cross as part of God’s plan of salvation. But there is more to this story that every man should know — a beautiful story of salvation that has been entrusted and revealed by the Almighty Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, to His Appointed Son.

Every story has a beginning and an ending. There is the first and the last chapter of every book. There is always a birth, and there is always a death.
So is it in the story of salvation. There is the author and the finisher of our faith. He is the first, the last; the Alpha and Omega, the beginning, and the end.
This is where the Church Age failed because they went on and on bible studying and preaching, without ever going to the end of the story of salvation.
The apostle Paul told us about this in 2 Timothy 3:7:
Ever learning,” Paul said, “and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
“Ever learning” — always bible studying, always preaching, but going around and around and there seems to be no clear path where man would end up when he follows the story of salvation.
It’s enough for those in the Church Age to say, you know, “When you receive Him as your Savior then you are saved,” and that’s it! But what you glean from the Scripture about His words, which the Father had given to us in the New Covenant, in the New Testament, in the New Agreement, it does not jive and coincide with what they are saying.
So the Church Age is in confusion and they cannot seem to solve, even if they tried. I have been there, you have all been there in the Church Age era. But now we know what we are talking about because the Father had mercy and compassion on us. He has produced and given us an Appointed Son upon whom the Father has appointed all things and who is the completion and fulfillment of what has been written in the Scripture. I am the model and the finished product of that salvation.
Here in the Kingdom of God on earth, you don’t have to study forever; you can now know, from the beginning to the end, what salvation is all about.
We have been in this ministry for all of these years. The Father had sent me and now you can connect all the dots. You can now see the missing link in the big picture of salvation which, heretofore, had left you in total confusion.
And you let it go because you trusted in what religion has fed you and you just took it in, all of it, without ever finding out the real truth.
But, as I said, the Father’s compassion and love is unending for man. He would not leave us in a state of ‘being lost without His love,’ but He found us, reinstated us and restored us into that purpose and intention that He had from the beginning. And I thank the Father that today, His Kingdom citizens, all of those who have been enlightened, know the completion of the truth of the salvation that they have received.
But for those who are still there in the Church Age, the age of confusion, the wrong interpretation and wrong translation of salvation, Paul also said that he bears them record because this is what they are banking on for salvation — they also practice the gifts of the spirit, they also have these religions that use the Words of God, use the name of God and people believe them also, and they have a great following — they think that this is what will ultimately save them.
But Paul said in Romans 10:2-3,
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
We cannot be accused of that in the Kingdom because the Father has revealed everything to us and separated me in that mountain, in Tamayong, for five years just to let me know that His righteousness will be that which will stand forever.
He did not let me be disturbed by outside voices while I was there. I was not allowed to read newspapers, watch TV, listen to the radio, nothing of news from the outside. Only the heaven above me was open and everything that comes from there is from the Almighty Father, so there was no need for me to worry if it might be Satan who is talking to me because that had already been resolved in my Kitbog, that it was the Father calling me when I followed His voice. So the heaven above me was open and I did not have to worry that any revelation coming from that open heaven would be from Satan. And now I am delivering it to the world today. It is the pure righteousness of the Father Almighty, written in the covenant, written in the agreement that was neglected by those in the Church Age.
The Father Almighty also accused them of that when He came as the Begotten Son 2,000 years ago. He said, “Well, as Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites. Your lips honor me, but your hearts are far away from me. In vain you worship me because you make for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Mark 7:6-8; Romans 10:2-3)
The traditions that have been handed down to us covered all of the covenant messages that were covenanted to man, which was brought to us by the Almighty Father the Lord Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago. But these were all set aside. We didn’t know about it and if we ever did come to read about it, it was toothless, powerless. What the Church Age had, what they had as power for people to hold on to, and for people to be loyal to, were their man-made doctrines. These were man-made, so where is the Word of the Father? They preach about it but they don’t live it; it was all a just a sham and a farce for them to be talking about the words that they are not committed to obey. That is why they were accused in Mark 7:6-8 and Romans 10:2-3 about that. It is very clear that the serpent seed is at work.
The Enthronement of the Almighty Father’s Will
Man’s will is always done. Man’s will is always enthroned. When He called me and entrusted me with the ministry of the Kingdom, the Spiritual Revolution had begun. The toppling down of the serpent seed of Lucifer, who had changed the God within us, had begun. Lucifer wanted to replace God in heaven, but he did not succeed, so He made us the replacement by doing our own will, so that we became gods like Him, interpreting good and evil according to us.
And that was the norm for thousands of years. Satan had his heyday in deceiving man into believing all of these religious dogmas that do not concern the salvation of man. But I thank the Almighty Father, that in these last days, He produced me as an Appointed Son and revealed to me everything — to restore, to institute — to what end? The enthronement of the Will of God in the heart and mind of man.
This is the gist of the New Covenant, the New Agreement. That is why when He prayed He said, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven.”
Why that prayer? Because on this planet Earth, before a son is produced, always the will of man is obeyed. And Satan is on top of all of that when he deceived man. That is why he said, “All of this has been delivered to me. All the kingdoms of this world are mine.”
The kingdoms of this world are composed of people — the inhabitants that make up a society, a city, a nation. All of them are under the complete will of Satan through the human will that is always interpreting good and evil according to them, with man-made laws that come from religion, from secular governance, from religious governance. It’s all the same.
If you look deeply at the power and authority that are in these institutions, it is always the will of man that is done. Where is the Will of God? We don’t know about it. If you ever come in contact with the Words of God, they are powerless. That is why when you listen to them, the words are shallow because the religions of the Church Age read them but don’t obey them. What do they obey? The words that they instituted. That is their power and authority but it does not concern your salvation. They are only using His name, using His words. But this ignorance has come to an end. The Father said, “This ignorance shall come to an end. When the Son of God that the Father has ordained, will be sent to the world for judgment.” And this is now that time.
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
In those five years, I was isolated in Tamayong, the Father poured out all of His sentiments, His will upon me, to produce a son out of me. And there is only one thing I learned there, and that word is repentance.
He sends me to all the world to tell people to repent because those times of the ignorance of God that He had winked at are over; now is the Day of the Lord. April 13, 2005 is the official beginning of the Day of the Lord, when he said:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
Who is that man? Our Almighty Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is now manifested in His Appointed Son, from the fallen Adamic Race, through whom He has completed salvation, judging the world through His righteousness. That is the appointed day.
Before that day came, we did not know the day; I didn’t know the day. I had also read this scripture before but it had no meaning to me because it had not been activated in my life. But when this ministry’s activation came and His words were lifted up and were made flesh because they embody the Appointed Son’s life, then everything I say bears the power and authority to save the soul of every man here on this earth today.
How Sin Happened
Let us make a quick review of the storyline of salvation. Let us see the way that man was created.
The Created Son is Adam. “He was created from the dust of the earth and then God blew into his nostrils the breath of life that he became a living soul made with God’s own hands.”
What is the mission of Adam, the Created Son? He is going to be the dwelling place of the Father who is an unseen God, who is a spirit. He would inherit all the things that the Father had created because he is the Son and He was given dominion over all of the Father’s creation; that is the Kingship. He had the Sonship and the Kingship.
But what happened? He lost the Kingship and he lost the Sonship when Satan Lucifer the Devil visited him through the serpent, talked to him and said, “You will not die, but you will become gods like him”
From that time on, separation came; Adam and Eve did not hear words from the Father anymore and the human will was enthroned.
Satan was, as I said, on top of all this and this characterizes all the societies of this world today. Seven billion people, whether in the scientific world, the religious world, the secular world, the political world, whatever — they are all under the dominion of Satan Lucifer the Devil through the serpent seed.
And where is the salvation of the Father Almighty? It cannot be found. Even religion that purportedly teaches about God has twisted it. I cannot blame them because they, too, were deceived. Satan Lucifer the Devil covered the Word of God. He twisted it. And he has under his dominion all of these people. That is why when he uses them to deceive others like he did Athanasius, who instituted the “Three God Theory,” in 325 A.D., that is Satan Lucifer the Devil at work, in the mind of Constantine, the pagan Roman Emperor.
Constantine’s motive was to put together the Roman Empire and dissolve all divisions. It was a brilliant political idea to use religion as the catalyst to unite the Roman Empire under him and he used Athanasius, the fallen bishop, to institute this fallen dogma that says that there are three gods, instead of one. It is Satan at work, opposing the Words of the Father Almighty.
The Father Almighty said, “Holy One.” But Satan always opposes this, he said, “The Holy Three.” That is the institution of the human will by Satan Lucifer the Devil, using man.
The Principle of Salvation
The Father will also use fallen man to institute salvation by saving one of us. First, “by the obedience of one, all will be saved, by the disobedience of one, all will be lost.” That is the principle of salvation.
I thank the Father, when He appointed me, I was the one that took and replaced the position of Adam, our first parent in the flesh. Then a garden was created, a place where the unfinished work of what man should be was continued, and this happened in the Far East, in Tamayong, in the foothills of Mt. Apo.
I represented the whole of humanity when I was there. I represented all of you; whatever race you come from, you were all included. If I had failed there and I did not properly use the freedom of choice to follow the Father’s Will, you would not be here today hearing me. We will still be in the dark and still be looking for the true salvation, which is the abject longing of our soul.
But religion would have made us content, you know, and we would have believed that everything is all right. Everything is not all right when you die and you find yourself lounging in the fires of hell; only then would you know. But religion is a panacea to the cancer of human society, which is called the serpent seed, but it solved nothing.
The Father, as I said, will use one of us from the fallen Adamic race, and it is upon the Father’s wisdom who that would be. As I see it, the Church Age came first before I came, a long time ago. It started thousands of years ago, in 70 AD and where were you in 70 AD? Where was I in 70 AD? I wasn’t even a thought in 70 AD, but in the mind of the Father, I was already there.
That is why He said, “Before you were even formed in the womb of your mother, of your parents. I have already called you.”
Even my mother was not present at that time. Even my mother’s mother, and as far back as we can go, was not present at that time. But in the mind of the Father, we were already there. Even two thousand years ago, when He was on that cross, “He saw His seed…” He was happy with just one seed. “He saw His seed…” embodied in the flesh of one of the fallen Adamic race, which is the focus of true salvation; and when that “one” would be saved and would understand the story of salvation and would finally accept it with His freedom of choice.
This is the catch there, you know. Even if you understand everything, even if everything is already revealed to you, if you reject any of that or all of it, then there will be no salvation at all. So you would have to decide every time, and every time Satan would be there, especially when you don’t understand something and then he lets you use your carnal, natural mind. Because that is human nature. When man doesn’t understand something, he rejects it. People reject things that they do not understand because they are using their finite, natural mind.
But the Father gave me the gift of faith. Gift of faith means that I said to the Father, “You don’t have to explain to me Father. I know it is coming from you. I do not have to understand it first. I just have to believe it.” And I did. That made all the difference.
So here I am today. Where they have failed, that is where I succeeded. Not one of those revelations fell to the ground; I received all of them. Whether I understood it or not, it did not matter to me. I said, “Father don’t worry about me, because my mind would fail me, my mind would fail to understand what Your will is because Your mind is far above my mind.” As the heavens is far above the earth, so are the thoughts of God (Isaiah 55:9).
So I had to use faith in order to be able to receive all of His revelations in such a short period of time. In five years, all of this was completed.
The Mission of the Begotten Son
The Begotten Son came, our Almighty Father the Lord Jesus Christ in the Gentile setting, who is the Word made flesh. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)
In the Old Testament, when the Word was made flesh, then the Spirit who created that flesh became the Father. The Spirit became the Father, the Word became the Son, thus we have the Father and the Son. That is the spirit and Word. God’s word is His Son. Then He put the Word into flesh, like us, so that it would have an affinity with us and live like us, talk like us. It is the kinsman type of redemption that we may identify with. You cannot identify salvation with a horse, or with a carabao that talks. Just imagine a dog sitting here and talking to you about what I’m talking to you about and you are a human being.
So He made Himself into flesh. The Spirit and Word in the Old Testament became the Father and the Son in the New Testament. That is why the Son said, “I and my Father are one,” (John 10:30), definitely saying, “The Word and the Spirit are one.”
So what was the mission of our Almighty Father in Matthew 1:18-21?
Joseph was about to separate from Mary, but an angel appeared to Him in a dream that night and said, “Joseph, don’t separate from Mary because he that is in her womb is of the Holy Spirit. It is of God.”
So God is the Father of that body, not a human being. Unlike the doctrine of these people in the Church Age, this man-made doctrine that says, “Oh, Jesus is only a man. If he is God why would he suffer on the cross?”
Just imagine, they cannot even understand that and they think that they are very bright and intelligent. If your God is so limited, why would you trust him? If your God cannot become a man, why how can you trust Him? He can do anything He wants. He is God.
The Father Almighty’s first mission was to redeem what the Created Son lost — the Sonship and the Kingship from the hands of Satan Lucifer the Devil.
And Satan visited Him in the desert while He was fasting for forty days and nights and the devil showed Him all the kingdoms of this world. “They were all delivered to me, I’ll give them to you. The condition is that you have to worship me.” (Luke 4:6-7)
This was Satan Lucifer the Devil at work again. He wanted his will to be imposed on the Begotten Son, whose mission is to redeem, to take back what we have lost, the Sonship and the Kingship. But Satan did not succeed. He was rebuffed every time and the Begotten Son, the Word made flesh, paid the price by His crucifixion on the tree of Calvary. That is when He said, “It is finished.”
“It is finished” means I now have taken the Sonship and the Kingship. They are to be given to the heir.
The Mission of the Appointed Son
So the Father would now seek from the fallen Adamic race, humanity’s fallen Adamic race, an inheritor, an heir, the “one” that would inherit the Sonship and the Kingship because it truly belongs to us.
Adam isn’t present anymore, so one of us would qualify. Anyone who qualifies will be given the chance to repeat what happened in the Garden of Eden, to take the place of Adam and repeat the scenario all over again until he uses his freedom of choice to follow the Father’s will no matter what.
And Satan’s tactics are the same as ever.
“I’ll give all these to you as long as you worship me.” (Luke 4:6-7)
“I’ll give all of this to you — riches, popularity, as long as you preach the Holy Three.”
“As long as you worship me…” means you will be under my deception. You will not follow and commit yourself to the Covenant, or to the Words. You will use it, use His Name, use His Words, but do not commit to it by following it, by repenting and saying, “Not my will, but Your will be done, Father. Never say that! You can do anything, but speak the truth. You can do anything, but submit to the will of the Father. You can speak in tongues, make miracles, pray for the sick, preach, bible study, bring Bibles with you, even five Bibles if you can carry it.” Bible study here, Bible study there. Before we play golf, Bible study. After we play golf, Bible study. Before we eat, Bible study. After we eat, Bible study. Before we sleep, Bible study. When we wake up, Bible study. Without ever coming to the knowledge of the truth, ever learning. (2 Timothy 3:7)
And that is what the Church Age is all about. This characterizes all those in the Church Age. Is this not true, people of the Church Ages? Am I not saying the truth? Are you not hypocrites? You use His Words but do not obey them. You obey the Holy Three more than the Holy One. And when I preached the Holy One and instituted the commandments of the Almighty Father, instituted His Will upon this earth, what did you do to me? You called me all manner of names. You accused me of many things. You invented many evil things and then you pasted them on me. Like on the Internet, you took the image of the devil and pasted it upon my face. That is your sin. But no matter what you do, I am here to institute the will of the Father upon humanity no matter what, because it is the Day for the Lord.
When you were chosen first, you did not do this and you failed. Then the appointment came to me. I was appointed for this. I was the predestined, called, justified “one” who became the Son of God, in fulfillment of Revelation 21:7: “He that overcometh shall inherit all things” — the Sonship and the Kingship — “and I will be His son, and He will be my God.”
And I overcame. I am no longer the god now. Spiritual revolution has finally ended the reign of the serpent seed because it is now God who is on the throne in one of the members of the Fallen Adamic race.
By the obedience of “one”, the Father has instituted His government upon that “one.” God is now the God and He is now the King over this “one” from the fallen Adamic race that would begin the downfall of Satan Lucifer the Devil’s rule of governance here on this earth today. And He sent me all over the world.
My mission as the appointed of the Father is to inherit all things. And now I have the Sonship and the Kingship.
Before I had it, Satan Lucifer the devil visited me in that mountain for five years, and every step of the way he told me, “There’s no use following the Father’s Will. Look at you! You are eating bananas; everybody has left you, everybody is persecuting you. You don’t even have one square meter of land. You were driven away to where you are now. Is this the price of following the Father’s Will? Come back to me. I’ll send you to America. I’ll let you marry a beautiful American girl, your girlfriend. I’ll give you privilege and popularity and money. Look at yourself, following the Father’s Will, but what did you gain? Nothing!”
And I told the devil, every step of the way, “My heart is fixed, my mind is made up. You cannot persuade me to go back. If I die here, I die now. But, I will die following the Father’s Will no matter what.”
Thus, as I took the place of my first parent, Adam, in infancy, I did not fall where he fell. I continued with my little knowledge and in my infancy about the Will of the Father, and I would say, “It is the Father who called me. I don’t have to understand all things, Father, but I will follow you.” Then He added knowledge upon knowledge, understanding upon understanding of the Word of the Almighty Father, until my Tamayong road was finished, until all was instituted in the Son and until spiritual maturity came. Then I was qualified, not as a servant anymore, but as a Son, an adopted son. Because I chose to obey Him all the way. It was my choice.
So the Appointed Son is the end of the storyline of salvation. The Appointed Son is now the Word made flesh. He is the fulfillment of the Old and New Covenant. He is the fulfillment of, “Thy will be done on this earth, today.” He is the fulfillment of the Father’s will upon the earth today.
I went into those two mountains a natural body and I was raised after that, sent into the world a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. As it was written in 1 Cor. 15:45-49 —
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
I was earthly like you. I am born from my birth parents who come from the fallen Adamic race, but as I came out of that mountain, successful and victorious, I bore the image of the heavenly. That I why I am aptly called the Appointed Son of the Father, Appointed Son of Jesus Christ.
This is also the fulfillment of Romans 9:28, “For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.”
Two mountains, six years, is a very short time. A quick work He did. While those he trusted for a long time — 2,070 years in the Jewish Age and then 1,935 years in the Church Age — the Father made quick work in me and He cut it short in righteousness. In six years, in two mountains, everything is now fulfilled in me as the Appointed Son.
Why am I here today? John 4:34 said, “Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.” Did I finish His work? Yes, my brothers and sisters, I did. I am not here for myself. I am here for fallen humanity. I am here for all of you who are still out there in darkness. Until the day that the Father will close the doors of the ark. All of those who are in will also be able to experience the glory of the glorification, beginning with the Appointed Son.
Hebrews 7:28 says, “For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.”
Ephesians 2:18, “For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”
The Garden of Eden Restored
You know, I always record episodes of my TV program “Powerline” in the Covenant Mountain Paradise Garden Eden Restored. This is very symbolic because this is where everything was restored. The Garden of Eden in the Middle East was lost because of the disobedience of Adam, but by the obedience of someone from the fallen Adamic race, the Garden of Eden is restored in the Far East. Where? Here in the Philippines, in Davao City, in Tamayong, in the foothills of Mt. Apo.
Now we are here and we are used by the Father to restore everything that the Father has given to me, especially His land.
You are the land of the Father. The true land of the Father are human beings. You were implanted with the serpent seed of Satan Lucifer the Devil, which bears all of the fruits of the flesh. Now that the serpent seed has been uprooted, and the righteous seed is implanted in us, all the fruits that we bear are the fruits of the spirit.
33 Thus saith the Lord God; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.
34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
What is this land? Is it the land that we step on? No, it is first of all, spiritual. The true land is the human being that has been desolated by Satan Lucifer the Devil through the serpent seed.
So in the sight of God, you are all desolate, you are all destroyed, you have nothing but serpents dwelling in you. All the fruits of the flesh are dwelling in you. He saw me first and he built me, he made me first as His Garden of Eden, and then He sent me to restore all of you and you will bear the fruits of the spirit. And those are the fruits that are only found in the Father’s Garden of Eden.
This is now what glorifies the Father through the Son. In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul said, ”Your spirit will be raptured first. Your spirit will be cleansed first. Your spirit will be changed first.”
When you repented and a new spirit was implanted within you, which is the spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will, in the rapture, the change that will happen will be spiritual first and then the physical would be swallowed by the spiritual. The mortal will be swallowed by the immortal and the corruptible will be swallowed by the incorruptible.
The first phase is spiritual, the second phase is physical. So the rapture is now taking place. Everyone that has been baptized and has repented has a new spirit; they are raptured to the New Jerusalem.
Where have you been raptured? To your New Jerusalem. This is the Father’s place. The New Jerusalem is a city indwelt by the spirit of the Almighty Father and the sons and daughters, who are spirits, also have the spirit of obedience to the Father’s Will. You are all there now. This is the ark of our salvation, and when the fullness of the time comes, all that are called in the spiritual New Jerusalem will be changed physically. I don’t know when. I know the day, I know the month, but I don’t know the year. I know how, I know where, I know partially, when. But, the last will be very, very exciting.
If the Father says, “The year will be 2018.” Praise the Father! “The year will be 2019.” Praise the Father! “The year will be 2020.” Praise the Father! Because the last enemy that will be conquered is Death.
1 Cor. 15:26 says, “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
So the glorification will finally happen. I will say bye-bye to the ground. I will not experience that. If ever I do experience that, I will not stay there for long. That is for sure. That is what glorification is all about.
So, brothers and sisters, this is the storyline of salvation. Everything is finished, completed. I’m only here biding my time. While I am here, I work like it isn’t going to happen in 1,000 years. But I live every day like it’s going to happen at this moment, this hour.
So we are all under the Father’s will. I didn’t know about this ministry I was appointed for, I did not plan it. Nobody planned it. My parents did not plan it. It’s all the Father who planned it, including the end of the end. Praise the Father!
