Who is Pastor Apollo Quiboloy?

Who is Pastor Apollo Quiboloy?

Philippines Pastor Apollo Quiboloy and the founder of Kingdom of Jesus Christ claimed that he is the Appointed Son of God and God used his name.

Apollo Quiboloy is the founder and leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, the Name Above Every Name (KJC), a Philippines-based Oneness Restorationist sect. Quiboloy was the former youth president of the National Assembly of United Pentecostal Church in the Philippines, a Oneness Pentecostal denomination. Quiboloy claims that God the Father sent him to Mt. Kitbog in Malalag, Cogon, South Cotabato, in Mindanao, where the Father spoke to him and showed him many miracles for one year to convince him of his calling. After this period of revelation and faith-building, Quiboloy was finally convinced that it was God who called him.

Apollo Quiboloy teaches that the first man, Adam, was created with a body and a soul but without a spirit. The completion of God’s creation of man is the putting of His Spirit within him. But before God could do that for Adam, the devil implanted his spirit within man. This spirit of the devil is what Quiboloy calls the “serpent seed.” This serpent seed drove Adam and all his posterity to disobey God. Humans were children of the devil, and they could do nothing about it. Only God the Father can solve this spiritual problem—not religion, and not denominations.

Quiboloy teaches that “the Christ in the Jewish setting” was unable to complete the work of salvation. Jesus was sent by God the Father to the Jews but was only able to “touch” the work of dislodging the serpent seed within man as His message was misunderstood and rejected by the Jews. What Christ started He was not able to finish. The Jews’ rejection of Christ as their Savior from the serpent seed is why God raised up Quiboloy. He is now the “chosen one” who will dislodge the serpent seed from those who believe in his message. God has made Quiboloy “the Christ in the Gentile setting.” Quiboloy asserts that all the claims of the biblical Christ can be applied to himself. For example, Quiboloy claims that He is also “the way the truth and the life” and that “no one comes to the Father except through [Quiboloy]” (John 14:6).

Apollo Quiboloy exalts himself above all other men. He declares that, of all the members of the Adamic race who have inherited the serpent seed, he is the only one able to pass God’s test by fully surrendering his will to Him. Quiboloy claims to be without sin and no longer able to sin, although still has knowledge of good and evil. He claims to be the first member of Adamic race in the Gentile setting to have a living relationship with the Father. According to Quiboloy, God the Father has implanted within him His seed, and he has become the “seed” of Jesus Christ. Quiboloy is therefore God’s example of obedience, commitment, and dedication who must be emulated by all men. According to Quiboloy, he is the most righteous person living on earth today.

Quiboloy claims that, after five years of germinating the seed of Jesus Christ in him, God called him as His Son. God finally said to Quiboloy, “I’ll send you to the world. My children are waiting. You don’t know them. They don’t know you. But when they hear your voice, they will listen to you because my sheep know my voice. You will be my audible voice in the world.”

Quiboloy also believes that the Father and the Son reside in his body and that he is the embodiment and culmination of all the revelations of God. In an effort to validate his claim to be the Son of God, Quiboloy built a compound in Mt. Tamayong, Davao City, that he calls “the New Jerusalem.” He claims that this is the New Jerusalem mentioned in the book of Revelation and that he is the King of kings reigning there. Quiboloy envisions that this compound will become the seat of the world government, and he anticipates ruling the whole world one day. For this reason, he is pro-active in endorsing politicians and in vocalizing his opinion on politics. He once prophesied that a presidential aspirant by the name of Giberto Teodoro would win the 2010 presidential elections, but he (and the prophecy) failed.

Apollo Quiboloy calls his “church” the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, the Name Above Every Name. The organization has upwards of 6 million members, mostly in the Philippines. Quiboloy also runs the Sonshine Media Network International (SMNI), a television network that regularly airs his preaching. His teachings are also heard on more than 15 radio stations all over the Philippines. Quiboloy trains his workers in his ACQ College of Ministries and acts as president of Jose Maria College. His sect also runs an orphanage called the Children’s Joy Foundation.
