“And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.”
The Blessings to a Nation that Seek the Will of God
By Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy
About This Post
We have been in existence for 30 years and the blessings pouring upon the Kingdom Nation unmistakably come from the Almighty Father, our Lord Jesus Christ. He has established it for the salvation of humankind. Everything you see in the material plane is just a bonus of the propagation of the Gospel of Repentance, which is what is important. The facilities and the utilities and the material things that we use are only a complement to the message that the Appointed Son is bringing to the whole world today.

Territories of darkness are being dismantled and the sentinels of light are being established all over the world.
The New Jerusalem is established here in Davao City, which is the spiritual ‘water center of the world.’ This is where you get your spiritual manna of revelation that will make your soul live again.
The Father has accomplished this and He has chosen the city where I was born, physically and spiritually, to be His ‘water center of the world’ for the salvation of all humankind.
The Son Has Power over all Flesh
Salvation has no exception. When you call yourself a human being you must go through the Son because that is the standard of salvation.
John 17:2 says, “As thou has given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.”
That is the power of the Son over all flesh – over every human being and no one is exempted. We are so fortunate that the Father has chosen the Appointed Son to rise up in this country. He told me that whoever will come very close to the Son will be blessed and that the city that I will be in will be blessed. The houses that I will visit will be blessed.
This is why I am very careful with my association with anyone because they will see blessings. What if they are not worthy of the blessings? So we are careful of the blessings that the Father has given to us, as we are with the conditions that come with it. Every time the Father pronounces a blessing there is always a condition, even in the Kingdom Nation, which He has blessed.
We have been in existence for 30 years and the blessings pouring upon the Kingdom Nation unmistakably come from Him. He has established it for the salvation of humankind. Everything you see in the material plane is just a bonus of the propagation of the Gospel of Repentance, which is what is important. The facilities and the utilities and the material things that we use are only a complement to the message that the Appointed Son is bringing to the whole world today.
So there is no excuse for humanity; all will go through the Appointed Son. That is why in this particular lesson that I am giving to all of you, I will tell you that the Father will bless a nation like our secular Republic of the Philippines.
Eighteen years ago, the Father revealed to me in a revelation that Mayor Rodrigo Duterte would become the President of the Philippines, and it did happen. The Father also revealed to me that he will win by landslide and it happened as well. But that is only the beginning. It is not the end. Now we will pray for the success of the tenure of the new president.
The Kingdom Nation will pray because when the Father put me in this place and introduced me to the world as the Appointed Son, He did not take away my freedom of choice. I can still do evil, I can still do good. Anyone who is appointed to any position whether a king, a president, a mayor, a governor, a senator, a congressman, or just a plain ordinary citizen, he has to make choices every day. And the Father does not interfere in your choices. That is the element in us, the image of God in us, that is not under the jurisdiction of the Father Almighty. You have been given the freedom of choice to either become godly or become evil. You have been given the freedom of choice either to become an angel or a devil. You have been given the choice either to go right or to go left.
So as I said the revelation that happened 18 years ago is only the beginning. And we will pray for the president, that all the choices that he makes will be all good choices. I have prayed specifically for this nation. I said, “Lord God, bless the nation of the Philippines because this is the land of my birth.” When the Father puts somebody in a place, like this revelation that is fulfilled today, be he a president or any other kind of leader, he still has to make choices. And we will pray that all the choices he makes would benefit the good of the secular Republic of the Philippines.
The Battle of Choices
Our battle cry in the election campaign in which we participated in is the riddance of corruption, especially in government. This means that corruption will not go unless the corrupt people will go. We also campaigned for the eradication of criminality, illegal drugs, and poverty. We pray as a Kingdom Nation that the Father in heaven will guide and give wisdom to our leader that his choices will be according to the Will of the Father Almighty. Because without the Father we cannot do anything. All power comes from Him.
Now, this may be exploited by Satan Lucifer the devil later on because Lucifer and Michael the Archangel are both angels. Lucifer, who is now Satan the devil, used to be an archangel in the rank of Michael the Archangel. They were both created archangels in heaven. But they had the freedom of choice.
Pride came into Lucifer’s heart and he felt that no one is above him. He believed that he shined brighter than God and that he is excellent in all that he does. So iniquity came into his heart because he allowed it. It was his choice. He believed that he can equal God or overthrow God from His throne. So in Revelation 12, there was war in heaven.
Revelation 12: 7 says: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
Michael the Archangel remained loyal to the throne of righteousness. This was his choice while Lucifer the Archangel chose to go against the Will of God. And this he did.
This is a battle of choices.
We all have a choice in what we do. And for our nation to be blessed, any leader, anyone who is in position should make the right choices. And you cannot make the right choices if God is not with you. So we pray for this nation, our own, the Philippines.
There is no problem with our Kingdom Nation. My body, my mind, my heart, my soul, my spirit, is all dedicated to doing the Will of the Almighty Father no matter what. My heart is fixed, my mind is made up to do the will of the Father no matter what. Whatever it is that is in front of me I will always ask the Father, “Is this Your will or is it not Your will?” When I make a choice it is always inclined to do the Will of the Father.
In secular countries like the Philippines, the choices of the people are not governed by the Word of God; they are governed by their constitution and by their personal choices. And for this nation to be blessed, let us, as a Kingdom Nation pray that our leaders will make the right choices. Because when God pronounces a blessing, there is always a condition — and this condition is to listen to the voice of God and to keep His commandments.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 says, “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.”
Even Angels Have a Choice
It’s very difficult for us to look at a nation whose king is not the Father because when the leaders and the people make their choices, we, as the Kingdom Nation, are always praying that if not 100%, at least 80% of the choices they make are according to the Father’s Will because we want our secular Republic of the Philippines to be blessed.
Lucifer made the wrong choice by believing in himself and believing that he can do it himself, so he went up to heaven and made war against God.
The Word of God tells us that he was defeated together with all of his angels. All of those that went with him and believed in him were cast away from heaven and their place was no longer found in heaven. Lucifer was cast down here on earth with great wrath. He is just waiting in the periphery to be judged in the last days and cast into the lake of fire.
But Michael the Archangel made the right choice. He protected and defended the throne of righteousness of the Will of the Father. He stayed in heaven and he is now the protector of the heavens together with the Almighty Father.
So even angels have choices. You think angels that are in this natural, physical world, don’t have choices? They have choices and these choices are also present among us human beings. We are not animals that we cannot choose what to do. You can choose left or right, it’s up to you. The Father’s jurisdiction does not include your freedom of choice. But you will either suffer or enjoy the consequences of your choices.
Your choice today determines your future, where your afterlife will be. Don’t trust in this life only because the Word of God says in Hebrews 9:27, “It is appointed unto men once to die and after death the judgment.”
The Word of God also says in Mark 8:36, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
The soul is very important. I thank the Father that He has entrusted me with all flesh and the souls of men.
The Goodness and Severity of God
Many want to know if these blessings that come from the Father are permanent or just temporary?
Romans 11:22 says: “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.”
There is always a condition to the goodness of God and to the severity of God. You can see clearly that it all depends upon us. It depends on our choices — whether to continue with the goodness or whether to choose the dominant evil in us.
Heaven is Real
Many people want to know if there really is a heaven. I will answer that by asking, “Do you really have a soul? If you have a soul then there is a heaven. If you think you don’t have a soul, there is no heaven for you.”
But we do have a soul. The soul within us is the being that knows, that can see, that can smell, that can talk, that can hear, that can feel the pain. That is the soul. That is your being and that is who you are. It lives in your body and when you die, that soul goes back to God and reports everything that he did, and then you would be judged according to the books. Your body will be either burned and put in an urn or put in a coffin under the ground. Your body will go back to the dust and your soul will go back to God.
So when your soul appears before God, you will know exactly who you are. Just as you know where you are today with a spiritual body that will not die. Judgment will come and many have asked me who will not make it to heaven?
The Destination of Your Soul
Revelation 20:11-15 tells us: “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which was in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Our life on this earth is very short and we must all know what this means for us. Many people are religious but they are not spiritual because they do not know what these words mean. Remember that no one is exempted when you face the Father, you are going to face Him bare naked having nothing with you—no title, no rank, no culture, nothing! You will just stand there with your name and you will be judged according to what is written in the book. The book will be the one to judge you.
And if you failed to repent and cast away the serpent seed, and have not received the righteousness of God in you, you will be judged and you will be surprised because many people that we thought are good will be going to hell.
Matthew 7:21 says, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
This is why I always emphasize the will of the Father that we must obey. Do not follow your own will if you want to be blessed. Follow only the Father’s Will!
Guidance for This Country, the Philippines
No amount of religiosity will save you; no amount of good works will save you. Only the will of God counts in this world if you want salvation for your soul.
When you exercise your freedom of choice, always exercise your freedom of choice to do the will of the Father – that is a sure way to your salvation. But every day you make choices and every day you do things that are sometimes not according to the will of the Father. So it is so good that today you can hear the voice of God through His Appointed Son whom He made His audible voice on this earth today.
I would like to guide this nation, the Philippines. This Kingdom Nation where I am is guided by the Almighty Father. And what I see is the secular Republic of the Philippines where the will of God is not being done. I would like to guide this nation to greatness. I would like to guide this nation to develop a relationship with the Father. I would like to guide this nation to do the Father’s Will and to have focus on that. I want this nation to be blessed not according to what we have today but according to the will of the Almighty Father. That is why I am always enjoining the Kingdom Nation, Kingdom citizens, sons and daughters, to always pray that the Father will orchestrate something in this country so that their leaders will look unto the will of the Father first and foremost.
I would like to clean the Philippines for the will of the Father. You want corruption to be a thing of the past in the Philippines? Let salvation be done nationally according to the will of the Father and this whole nation will listen to the voice of God through His Appointed Son. If they do that, then this whole country will be blessed on a national scale. This will include not only material, physical, economic blessings, or justice that is equal, but it will include spiritual blessings which are the most important thing of all because without spirituality, and without your soul being saved and assured of salvation, you have to ask yourself, “Where are you going?”
The Iniquity of This Nation
What is the iniquity that you are doing today? It is the iniquity of non-repentance–when you did not surrender the serpent seed of your human will and said, “Father not my will but Your will be done in my life.” That is why I am cleaning the whole country for national salvation by repentance beginning with leaders and up to the last citizen of this country.
Is that impossible? With man, it is impossible but not with God, for everything is possible with God.
Who will not Inherit the Kingdom of God
Galatians 5: 19-21 says, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
All of those are the works of Satan Lucifer the devil that he has implanted within us. And as long as you have these in you, you are deemed unrighteous in the sight of God. How can you become righteous? You have to be born again in the spirit of the Father’s Will.
The fruits of the spirit are found in the Kingdom of Heaven where repented people are. The fruit of the spirit is the atmosphere in heaven.
Galatians 5:22-23 says: “But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
You don’t need human law if you have these in you, because the atmosphere of heaven placed upon this earth today is the same atmosphere in heaven that we do not see.
Referring to the fulfillment of His prayer when He said, “Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on this earth.” (Matthew 6:10)
His will being done on this earth will produce the atmosphere of heaven here, where there will be love, peace, and joy. This is what man needs in his life today in order to have peace, in order to have salvation, in order to have communication, and in order to have the restoration of your fellowship with the Almighty Father, so that He might dwell in your life as His residence.
The blessings I am pronouncing to the Philippines has a condition – if you will follow God’s Will, blessings will follow. But that is ‘if’. What is your choice? In the Kingdom Nation, the repented sons and daughters have already made their choice. They have chosen to do the Father’s Will no matter what.
