To the Pastors & Watchmen in the City

It has come to our attention that a Rev. Apollo C. Quiboloy will be in Singapore on 2 October 2005 (Sunday). He will be holding the open meeting at the Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre Auditorium Suntec City.

We first came to hear of this man during one of our trips to Davao City in 2004. We heard from the local pastors about a man on television in Davao who was claiming to be the Son of God. Upon watching some of his programmes, our team saw an eloborate throne built for Rev. Apollo in the church and he was claiming that he was "the way, the truth, and the life." At the same time, he used many of the Lord's words and personalised it to himself, calling himself THE SON.

We are now alarmed to learn that he is coming to Singapore and felt it necessary to warn the churches and believers in this nation concerning his meetings.

Here are some examples of his claims that have been taken off his website:

When asked if he is Jesus Christ in the Gentile body, his reply was:-

"More than 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ came in the flesh to testify to all that God can dwell in a human body, in the life of a man. It is here now. The life that lived in Israel before is now here. He is now using a Gentile body (referring to himself). If He was able to come to the Jewish people, He can also come to the Gentile people." John 5:23 says, "That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father which hath sent him."

Concerning his role as the Son of God, he said this:-

"The life of Jesus Christ is in me. If there will be another book that will be included in the Holy Scriptures, it will be the book of the fulfillment of the Old and the New Testament. This fulfillment happened in my life when God called me."

Here are several other statements that he has made:-

"This great opportunity of sharing to you the divine wisdom and revelations He has bestowed upon me as His Designated Son in these last days."

"Don't miss your visitation. Hearken unto the voice of the Father now as He speaks through his Son. Treasure each word and each moment for this privilege is graced only to those who are true children of God, chosen and handpicked by the Father to receive His revelation through His Son."

He also uses Scriptures such as John 3:35, 5:20, 7:18, and 8:18 to refer to himself, even though these Scriptures are unique to Christ alone, thus making himself equal to Christ and alluding to the idea that salvation is through him.

Our Lord Himself warned us in Matthew 24:24-26, that " ...false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it."

As shepherds and watchmen in this city, we need to warn our people concerning these meetings. They should be avoided because one cannot underestimate the power of deception. We are warned by the Lord Himself about these things, so let us not fall prey. You can check out his website
