John 5:43, “I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not:
if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”

       As evidenced in the preceding “60 Minutes” YouTube documentary, one of the most Satanic false prophets of our time is Apollo Quiboloy in the Philippines, who literally claims to be the “Son of God.” Apollo is headed for the Lake of Fire to burn for ever! Apollo is worse than Charismatic godfather, Benny Hinn, another hellbound apostate deceiver! Other popular apostates of our generation are Joel and Victoria Osteen, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Joseph Prince, Andrew Womack and Joyce Meyer, to name just a few. The fact that God has not struck these people dead is a testimony to how merciful our God is!

2nd Peter 2:1-3, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Why are tens of millions of people so stupid? Why do they continue to follow these ungodly con-artists like Joyce Meyer, Steven Furtick, Joel Osteen, Apollo Quiboloy, Jesse Duplantis, Rick Warren, Peter Popoff, Mike Murdoch, Pat Robertson, Larry Huch, and other multimillionaire preachers? Jesus gave us the plain answer in the following passage of inspired Scripture...

John 5:39-44, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.  I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?”

That is why millions of people are being deceived today by false prophets. They don't “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES”! Apollo Quiboloy, like the Pharisees in the Bible, are hardened unbelievers who knowingly reject Christ. The following is true of deceived people, they:

  1. Don't Search The Scriptures.
  2. Won't Come To Jesus Christ.
  3. Follow A Man Instead Of The Savior.

The Holy Bible is the Only Warning You'll Ever Receive from God

In Luke 16:19-31, the Lord tells the true story of two men, Lazarus and an unnamed rich man. From the torments of Hell, the rich man pleads with Abraham to send Lazarus from the grave to warn his five living brothers. Luke 16:27-31, “Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” That is a powerful warning for everyone today that the Holy Bible is the ONLY chance humanity will ever receive!

Apollo Quiboloy literally professes to be the appointed Son of God. Apollo teaches his followers that they can be saved by placing their trust is himself. Nobody could ever be deceived by Mr. Quiboloy if they simply SEARCHED THE SCRIPTURES as Jesus said to do. ...

“It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.” —Horace Greeley

Apollo Quiboloy's followers have been enslaved by Satan because they don't read the Holy Bible! The Devil cannot trick you if you always SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES to verify everything anybody tells you! Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” With this Scripture in consideration, it becomes obvious why the Devil has published hundreds of English Bible versions, to confuse everybody and cause them to lose confidence in God's Word. Consequently, hundreds of millions of people nowadays are partakers of religion without truth. They have churchianity without Christianity. Satan has conned them into living the Christian life without being born-again!!! This is exactly what went wrong in Matthew 7:21-23, when Jesus told those dedicated religious workers in eternity that He never knew them! Does Jesus know you? The Lord only knows them that are his. 2nd Timothy 2:19, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

We read in Acts 1:9-1, “And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” When Jesus (the true only begotten Son of God) comes back to the earth, He will be seen by the whole world. I am not speaking about the Rapture, when the saints will be CAUGHT UP to be with the Lord in the air (1st Thessalonians 4:17-18). I am talking about seven years later, at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Revelation 1:7, “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” The trustworthy King James Bible is abundantly clear that, “THIS SAME JESUS, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11). So Apollo Quiboloy could not possibly be the return of Christ!

Millions of people are being deceived because THEY WILL NOT COME TO CHRIST! Since they refuse to come to Christ, they will instead receive anyone who comes in THEIR OWN NAME! Apollo Quiboloy comes in his own name! Matthew 24:4-5, “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” The “Kingdom of Jesus Christ” cult has 6,000,000 followers worldwide! It doesn't get much creepier than this. This guy is a scumbag!

Please notice that the first thing Jesus said in John 3:39 is to “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES”!!! If I were the Devil, I would do everything in my power to lead people away from the authority of the Word of God, and instead get them to follow manmade teachings. This is exactly why Satan has published hundreds of English Bible versions, to weaken and diminish the Scriptures as our final authority. The inspired Word of God is the believer's final and only authority in all matters of life, faith and morality. That is why Jesus commands us to “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES”! Even our precious Lord, when tempted by the Devil in the wilderness, quoted the Scriptures all three times he was tempted to overcome the temptation (Matthew 4:1-10). Every child of God, without exception, has been born again by the “incorruptible seed” of God's Word, 1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

Let God Be True, But Every Man a Liar

Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

Humans are amazingly annoying creatures. People won't listen to the inspired Word of God, but they'll listen to some kook who claims that he died, went to Heaven or Hell, and then came back with a book to sell. The Holy Bible has an incredible history, that can only be logically explained by concluding its divine origin. I mean, there is no way humanly possible that 66 separate books of the Bible were written by approximately forty different writers, spanning a period of 1,500 years, from multiple nations and diverse cultures; and yet those 66 books all perfectly harmonize in agreement, prophecy and historical accuracy. Only God or some supernatural force could achieve such a wonder!!!

Yet, when a man named Bill Weise claimed in 2006 that in 1998 he died and went to Hell for 23 minutes, and then came back with a story to tell, and a book to sell, he became and overnight media sensation! Why is it that people won't listen to God's Word, but they will listen to man's word? Why won't men listen to what God has to say about men, but they will listen to what man has to say about God? I read the book by Bill Weise and it is a pathetic joke, totally insane. Mr. Weise claims that he saw demons with giant fangs and big ugly heads while visiting Hell. The truth is that there are NO DEMONS IN HELL. God created Hell for the Devil and his angels, as a place to punish them. So demons don't torture people in Hell. Furthermore, fallen angels have their own separate Hell, called Tartarus in the Greek language. Unsaved humans go to a place of torment in Hades (a different Greek word for the English word, Hell). Mr. Weise is a liar!

Television host Oprah Winfrey has made herself filthy rich by promoting kooks, quacks and queers, many of whom are New Age gurus and demonic false prophets. Of course, Oprah is not a Christian herself, sadly, and has been pulling on the same rope as the Devil for many decades now. Her damnation slumbereth not! Millions of people won't have anything to do with Jesus Christ, but they openly welcome false prophets like Oprah Winfrey, Apollo Quiboloy and Rick Warren. It is hard to imagine in these modern times of information, that millions of people could actually be deceived to believe that Apollo Quiboloy is the Son of God. I mean, just in the Philippine islands alone, four millions victims are trusting this lying deceiver as their savior! You have to sincerely ask yourself in your heart of hearts, “What in the world is wrong with those people?” Really, have they lost their minds? Apollo, the Son of God? Son of Belial, definitely!

It is abundantly clear that none of those people obey the Holy Bible, for if they did they would know that Jesus alone is the Son of God. 1st 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.” Did you notice that precious name, Jesus! What's that, you'd like another Scripture? Okay, now you're talking! Acts 4:10-12, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Don't miss what we just read, “FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12b). The Scriptures couldn't be any plainer that salvation is found in one name, AND ONLY ONE NAME, which is the precious and magnificent name of JESUS, my God and my Savior!!!!!!!

John 5:43, “I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not:
if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”



Did you know that you don't have to ask Jesus to save you? God has already told you how to be saved, that is, by simply believing that His Son died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and raised up from the dead three days later. Christ raised up from the dead, which means that God the Father accepted His Son's payment for the sins of the world. Christ suffered on the cross so that we wouldn't have to suffer in a literal Hell forever. Amen! You don't have to bow your head to be saved. You don't have to pray. You don't have to do anything except believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and make that your only hope for Heaven!

Nothing Can Replace The Holy Bible!

“If your moral judgment is crooked and rotten, and you have no Bible conviction, when the conscience says, 'Do right!', you may do what your moral judgment said for you to do, and it's wrong! That's the reason we need Christian schools. That's the reason we need Christian homes, to teach our young people!” (a truthful quote from the precious MP3 sermon by Brother Lester Roloff, “Titanic”)
