“For as the lightning will cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…” – Matthew 24:27
The revelation of SONSHIP started in the year 2003 when Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy officially announced this revelation among the sons and daughters of God. He, being the residence of the Father on earth and heir of all things the Father entrusted to him not only His words, name, life, kingdom but also the lives of his enemies, the power to raise even the dead, riches, fame and power in the airwaves. These things were given to him for a single purpose – that is to finish the work of the Father on man’s salvation and let the whole world knows that it is He who works in the kingdom. Out of Pastor Apollo’s humility, for years and since the establishment of the kingdom he always wanted to stay just as a servant of God and deliverer of His message. As what we usually hear from him, this thing is what he has been avoiding because he knew already more persecutions and questions will rise from his detractors. But God the Father is the one who orchestrates on his life. Pastor Apollo has to reveal whatever the Father asks him to do.
“All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father, neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.” – Matthew 11:27
It is an important thing for us to understand the message of SONSHIP because on this message we will understand deeply why God has to appoint a Son in these last days just in the days of Jesus Christ when he came to the Jewish people and introduced himself as a Son of God. Soon the ministry of the Son will finish the spiritual work of God here on earth. We will come to the unity of faith of the knowledge of the Son of God and this knowledge will be common among all His people. This is a knowledge that does not come from Bible Schools, seminaries or from the religion and denomination where you are now. This is a new knowledge, a new understanding, a new paradigm, a new revelation that has never been revealed. If you are a child of God, you will know from your heart and spirit what these things are. This is a revelation that comes from the Father for us. Everyone will know that there is a beginning and an end to everything.
The Son in the Jewish Setting
In the beginning when God created Adam and Eve, Adam was supposed to be God’s residence on earth but Satan came and destroyed that plan. Instead of God living in Adam, Lucifer lived in Adam. Adam and Eve propagated and all of their children are Satan’s children until at the present generation due to the spirit of disobedience implanted to them.
The numbers of people are increasing but all are children of the devil. God has no child among them. God has no residence here. So He came down. He called the Jewish people but He could not reside in them either because they had not yet been made complete. He tried to cleanse them from the outside. They received His commandments only in the physical sense but they did not want to receive His commandments in their spirit. God could not reside outside the human body. He can only reside inside it.
Jesus Christ started His ministry as the Son of God at thirty years old. He began to proclaim the Kingdom of God. Upon proclaiming the Kingdom of God one day, He went into Jerusalem in what we call the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem and He proclaimed Himself the King of Israel. He sat on a donkey and everyone welcomed Him. “Hail to the King of Israel! Glory to God in the highest!” And the eyes of all those Jewish people, the chosen people of God who were waiting for the Messiah, popped out, and they said, “Where is the King? Is this not he that was born with us in this place? We know his parents. Why does He say that He is a king, that he is the Messiah?”
They did not accept Jesus Christ as their king because they did expect Him to come in that manner. They did not know that their Messiah was not going to redeem or deliver them politically or physically from their enemies, because the greatest bondage is the bondage inside. Outside, they were occupied by the Roman government but inside was the greater invasion, because the enemy, Satan, was within. God wanted to free the Jews from this bondage.
The Jews were in bondage of the Roman government but the greater invasion was inside of them for Satan was within them…
The Hebrew people were crying in Israel for four hundred years, asking for a Messiah. “We are sick and tired of the Egyptian bondage, give us a Messiah!” They were waiting for the Messiah to come as a man of war, as God in heaven Himself manifested in the flesh with a sword in His hand, killing all of His enemies. He did not come like that. He came in the form of Moses. Do you know Moses? The Egyptians killed all the male children among the Hebrews but Moses was spared. He grew up in the palace of the king. His foster mother was the princess, the daughter of Pharaoh. When the due time came that body was appointed to be the messiah of Israel from the Egyptian bondage.
God appointed a body in the Jewish community, in the Jewish nation, to save His people, but they did not accept Him. Then He came to the Gentile people, and the Gentile received Him by faith but only on the outside, not on the inside. He was waiting for that one to come and be appointed the residence of God on earth. Who is going to appoint that? He Himself is going to appoint that.
As the Messiah, the Lord God wanted to deliver them spiritually first, but they did not accept Him. They don’t believe him and they even crucified Him. God sent prophets to remind them of their wickedness but they were stoned to death. Until the last recourse was given to the Jews, God himself came down and dwelt among them. His word was made flesh, a Son in the Jewish setting came who embodied His word, pointed out to himself as a Son but instead of accepting Him, he was crucified on the cross. The Bible says that God turned His back on them and looked at a people that are not His people.
“I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.” –Romans 6:25-26
Now, the Father is calling a people not only of the Jews but also of the Gentiles. He sent Paul the Apostle, “Go to the Gentiles who are not my beloved, who are not my people, who are not my nation, who are not called by my Name. And out of them, I will call my children.” So two thousand years ago, the apostle Paul went to the Gentiles and the Gentiles received the Gospel message.
The Son of God in the Gentile Setting
Two thousand years later, God was able to produce a SON in the gentile setting which many did not know. The Old and New Testaments have come into fulfillment. This thing was even prophesied by Isaiah when Jesus Christ upon his death on the cross saw his SEED among the gentiles and will be called the Son of God. On April 25, 1950 – the seed of Jesus Christ was born. The Son of God in the gentile setting came in an unexpected manner just like Jesus Christ in his time came in a manner Jewish people did not expect.
The Son of God in the gentile setting came in an unexpected manner just like Jesus Christ came in a manner Jewish people did not expect…
So many now believe in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. There are more than one billion people who call themselves Christians because they believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. But when the Son of God in the gentile setting came, some Christians are no different from the Jewish people. They also do not want to accept Jesus Christ as King. They only want to accept Him as Savior.
Many prophecies came. One said He will come in 1980. They even gave 88 reasons why He will come from heaven for the rapture. They believed in a Messiah who will come from the glories of heaven, who will break heaven in two and when the trumpet sounds, will come and snatch the saints away—those who call themselves Christians. Everyone is looking for the Messiah. Everyone is looking forward to experience rapture. Everyone is looking to be caught up in the heavens in a glorious manner, with a white horse and all the angels singing hallelujah at the back. This is the mentality of Christianity looking for the Messiah to come. This is the old paradigm. This is the old mentality that the Jews likewise had at His first coming. Christianity expects him to come like that. In 1988, He did not come. Another prediction came in 1997. Still he did not come.
In the year 2000, the Son came in a manner many did not expect. When God comes, He is going to find a body from the race of the first Adam because it is the first Adam who lost and fell from the grace of God. It is he who needs to be redeemed. So out of the billions of people in the world today, Jesus Christ is only waiting to find one body whom He can make His residence so that His Kingdom would come. His people are expecting Him but their expectation is an old paradigm like the paradigm of the old Jewish people. He is going to come in a manner you do not expect Him to come! Jesus gave us a hint.
SONSHIP: The Message of the Son, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy
The Kingdom of heaven is the residence of God. God is trying to find somebody who will receive the Kingdom inside of himself by overthrowing the first occupant who deceived our first parents. Our first parents were supposed to be the stewards of the old house of God that He created from dust. God tried to find one body out of all His people that call upon His Name. But His chosen people only want to accept Him outside, not inside. So He appointed a time.
In due time, a body will be appointed to His place in God’s history. He will take up from God the Father the scepter of the SONSHIP. That time has come. The Father has found a residence here. He has appointed a body, born out of the clan of Adam and Eve, to become His residence. Why is this so important?
It is important because all the clan of Adam and Eve is owned by the devil. This body is going to be owned by God, but it will come from the clan of Adam and Eve, born of the flesh, both mother and father. He is supposed to be owned by Satan, but in due time, this man is going to stand up and say, “Father I declare my loyalty to You, not to Satan, because first of all, I am Yours, You created me. Satan, you deceived my first parents. Now, I have come to my senses. I am going to go back to the loyalty to my Father who created me.” The Father in heaven is happy because the life of His Son in a Jewish body has now found residence in a Gentile body.
This is very important because once this is declared, then it means that the Lord has already found a residence here. He now has a house here. Whoever He chooses to be His residence automatically becomes the Son. The race of Adam and Eve is waiting for deliverance. I tell you, the Deliverer has come! The Father has come! He has come because He has found Himself a body! He has come in a manner that they did not expect!
The Deliverer has come. Will you accept Him?
The Bible says in 1 John 2:22-23:
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
“Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”
The Son is the body that the Father resides in. The Father is going to rule through the Son as the Father is going to deliver His people through him. The Father is going to rule as the king through the Son. This is the proclamation that we had in the year 2000. This is the “Reign of the Father through the Son. Therefore, let that abide in you.
1 John 2:27-29:
“But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
“And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
“If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. ”
You know, there are children of God and children of the devil.
1 John 3:10:
“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”
How can you practice righteousness when you have not repented? When you have not surrendered the spirit that always rebels against the will of God, which is the spirit of disobedience we inherited from Adam and Eve? Unless you surrender that by repentance, you cannot practice righteousness. When you do not practice righteousness, you are not a child of God. You are a child of the devil. Listen to this:
“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.” (1John 5:10)
Now I am talking, the Son is talking, but it is not really the Son you are listening to. Why do I say this? I say this because John 14:10 says:
“…the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” The Father is now testifying to you, through the Son. Listen to this:
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.” (1John 5:11)
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” (1 John 5:12)
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” (1John 5:13)
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2 John 1:7)
Jesus Christ is my Father. I am His Son who came and dwelt in this flesh. The purpose why I am here is to tell you the truth. I will not make my later statements too clear to you because I want the Father to reveal that to you personally. Brothers and sisters, something very important has been revealed to you. The purpose why the ministry of the Son has been given today is for you to repent. Repent and surrender your life to God! There is no other way! Be born again in the spirit, become a child of God! Hallelujah!
Religion is over and done with! Denomination is finished! Crying without any change inside is not acceptable by God. Crying in repentance, that is what God accepts. The Son is here to destroy the evil in you. This is the ministry of the Son. Hallelujah!
The Bible says in 1 John 3:8:
“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
I am here and the greatest destruction I am putting on, the greatest destruction that I am inflicting on the Kingdom of Satan is the message of repentance! Surrender! Surrender that disobedient spirit! That is the spirit of the devil! Say, “Lord, I repent, I surrender, from now on, not my will but thy will be done.” Recognize the Son because by recognizing the Son, you will also recognize the Father. Receive the Son and you receive the Father. Follow the Son and you follow the Father. Obey the son and you obey the Father, because the Father is in the Son. Hallelujah!
The Father was very lonely for a very long time. He did not have a body who follows Him. He did not have a body that He can reside in. He tried to find a body to become His residence, but people would accept Him only for a while, but would later on stop obeying and following Him. Halfway, they would leave the Father, reject the Father or drive the Father away. “We don’t need you, you cannot live here anymore. We are leaving you behind!” And so the Father had nowhere to live. What a pity for Him!
Now He has found a residence! The Son has given His body as a residence to the Father without condition! Unconditional surrender! That Son said, “Father, use me. Father, command this body. Father, command your Son! Live within me forever! I am subject to your will. Whatever your will is, I will follow it without condition!” Hallelujah!
If you know the Son, you will know the Father also. All of you in Christianity, what you have been looking for is already here! Before you can go to heaven in the rapture, the spirit of the Father must come into you first. Before you can be raptured alive, you have to repent first and let the Father dwell in you as He is dwelling in me. Become a child of God! Repent! Do His will! Come into the Kingdom! Recognize the first-born Son of God among the Gentiles!
Why do you need to accept that I am the first-born Son of God among the Gentiles? You need to accept it because it is the first-born Son, the eldest Son among the Gentiles, who will bear His life and preach to His brothers to enter into the Kingdom until they understand the will of the Living God in heaven. That is very, very important. Children of God, now is your chance. Philippines, this is your time. You have been chosen. You are the chosen nation of God. Davao City, you are the Water Center of the World . Tamayong, you are the seat of God’s spiritual governance on earth!
Will you accept Him as King? His nation did not accept Him as their king. Now He has a nation among the Gentiles. There are many in this nation who still do not accept Him as king. However, you, who have been called by Him from Christianity, do you accept Him as your King? Your king is already here and He will give to you everlasting life!
Everything that I revealed to you will be confirmed by my Father to you. Anticipation of the Father’s presence will come to you and reveal this to you personally through dreams, visions, and audible voices. The Father will talk to you.
Now is the chance for everyone to come into the Kingdom. Come into the Kingdom! Let’s proclaim Him as our King!
Children of God in the Philippines, now is the time for us to come and fulfill John 3:5:
“…Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
Let us all repent. Let us all say to the Father, “Not my will but thy will be done, from now on. I surrender my life to You. I will recognize Your Son because if I recognize Your Son, I will also recognize the Father.” Do you know why?
The Bible says in Hebrews 1:1-3:
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
“Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”
Jesus Christ is sitting on the thrown as the Father. He has appointed a Son for His Kingdom on earth and that is fulfilled right now. What is the Father saying through His Son? Leave everything that hinders the will of God behind! Come and enter! Do not forget what His former nation had done and remember the nation that He loves now.
You are the chosen ones. God will choose many more throughout the Philippines. It will happen in the Philippines first, then, to the whole world. All of them will come together in this place, which is designated to be the Water Center of the World.
Philippines, you are a blessed nation! Davao City, you are a blessed city! Tamayong, you’ve been chosen as the center of the world so that His laws, His spiritual laws would come from you and be delivered to all of His people all around the world.
We are the focus of the salvation of the Son In the Gentile setting. Now without his salvation being completed in us and without introducing a Son that will live and that will inherit his life like him, there will be no hope of salvation. You may have religion, you may have denominations and you may have set all kinds of standards established according to your own righteousness but unless they jive with the righteousness of the Son, it is nothing. The Son brought as the standard of salvation. Man is still in sin, man is still in the prison house of sin, man is still lost, man has not come back to the Father and man is not pleasing to him.
But I thank the Father that after the 2000 years are over and His life progressed according to what we have talked about last night in the progression of the righteousness of God from faith to faith. Now it has come to the point that the Seed has come back to its own original image, the image of the Son. Not one but plenty and now is the ingathering, the harvest and all of those that will listen to my voice and follow the words of the Son will be saved like me. I am your example, I am your model and I was sent to the world not under your denomination or religion because the Father has not entrusted the love of his Son into the hands of the organization but his Son will come out bearing His name, His words, His life, His kingdom which are entrusted to him so that the children of God in the last days who will bear also that image that being a seed, the life of the Son in the Jewish setting will also become the life of the Son in the Gentile setting. This is already completed. Every thing is ready.
All you have to do is just come and receive what I am offering to you and you will experience the life-changing message that will come to you. My message is the same as the message of my Father. Repent, surrender to the will of my Father, dislodge or repent, surrender the old spirit that you have been inherited from Adam and Eve. Make a conscious promise that from now on not your will but the Father’s will be done in your life. That is the greatest miracle that can happen to a man because that is the very purpose why Jesus Christ suffered, crucified and resurrected. Without that, everything is in vain. The vision, the prophecies, the knowledge, the dreams, the revelations are all nothing without the mission and the purpose of the Son being completed in the last days. The only way that you can be saved is through the key – repentance.
If you don’t surrender to the will of the Father and repent to have a new spirit, John 3:5 can never be fulfilled in your life and there can be no entrance into the kingdom of God. That’s plain and simple.1. Water Center of the World – Pastor Apollo declared Davao City as the Water Center of the World, from whence all nations will receive eternal life when they drink of the spiritual water that comes from Davao City as the New Jerusalem of God
