Rapture has taken place and is still taking place. From April 13, 2005 up to the present, the doors of the Kingdom of Heaven are still open for the raptured ones who are still coming in. And this is the twinkling of an eye that the Father has promised to us in 1 Corinthians 15:52, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
Those who have this knowledge are part of the five wise virgins who have heard the voice of the Bridegroom in the midnight. They are those who stood up, filled their lamps and met the Bridegroom. Because they had the light; that means, they know, they can see, and they understand the message. (Mat. Chapter 25)
Who are the five foolish virgins? They are those who are also listening to me. One way or another, they have come across the channel of SMNI, or have heard of me on radio or in the internet. They have heard me on sonshineradio.com, “dinig sa buong mundo.” One way or another, they have listened to me and have also understood my message. They know within their honest conscience that what I am saying is true. They tried to get up, trim their lamps, but they do not have the light because there is one thing they cannot do, and which is also keeping them from being lighted up.
What is that? It is severing their ties with their different attachments to the world. Some may say, “I cannot join Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy although I know he is the Appointed Son of God because I cannot leave my denomination. I am one of the elders here. I have my friends, and my relatives. I might be persecuted and ridiculed. I don’t want to lose my standing in our society. The stakes are too much.” Some say, “I know that he is the Son of God but I cannot join Him. I cannot be a Kingdom citizen.”
If you are like that, you are one of the five foolish virgins that have the form of worship, that have the form of godliness, but don’t have the power thereof. Your lights do not shine. There is one thing you cannot do, and that is to surrender and repent and become a son or a daughter of the Father. You already know the Father’s will but your attachment to the world keeps you from following Him.
When will you finally decide to be in the Rapture?
There are many people whose interpretation of the Rapture is when the trumpet sounds, they will, all of a sudden, burst out from this earth, defy gravity and meet Him up in the air. You know, that’s not true. That’s not the right interpretation. If you still believe in that, that means you did not see the light. Gravity is not Newton’s gravity or interpretation of scientific gravity that pulls you down back to the earth.
When I speak of gravity in spiritual language, it is your attachment in this world that is keeping you from making the right decision, although you know the truth. You cannot make the right decision because you are being held back by something, and so, you cannot decide to go with the Father. You cannot, because you are weighed down by those attachments; that is your gravity. You cannot take off.
You cannot join the Son. You are too physical. When you say Rapture it means our physical bodies’ defiance of gravity, and being changed in the twinkling of an eye. It is even very hard to change your heart. Can you imagine changing your body into a glorified one? You were even having a hard time changing your heart or switching from your religion to the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Kingdom of Heaven is already here. You do not have to fly and defy gravity. You can ride a plane coming over. If you have switched loyalty from where you are to the New Jerusalem, that is the real Rapture. You have been raptured. You will be cutting all of your attachments in this world. The last attachment that is very hard to sever is your family attachment.
There are many people here who came bodily. And they thought that by staying in this compound physically, they were already saved. But when the Father looked at their hearts and spirits, their attachment is to the world and to their family.
So those who have misinterpreted the Rapture, they made it physical first, before it is spiritual. They came here physically before having been prepared in their spirit from within. Their loyalty is not switched to the New Jerusalem. They have their loyalty deposited somewhere else, rather than the New Jerusalem and they came here bodily. I’ll tell you, if you cannot pass that, you will go back to where your heart is. “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Mat. 6:21 and Luke 12:34)
Pretty soon, while joining me here bodily, they became disgusted, they became one of the disgruntled ones and they became disappointed. Why? Because the tie that binds them is not towards the spiritual aspect of their service to the Father. I found somebody here whose connection was still with his physical mother, whom he was still communicating with. So when it was difficult for him here what did he do? He went back to where his heart was.
They that are born in the flesh are flesh; they that are born in the spirit are spirits. (Jn. 3:6) But look at those brothers and sisters who are born in the spirit, whose loyalty is already in the New Jerusalem, some of them are in the United States, some are in Canada, some are in Europe, when worse come to worst, they will fly back to the New Jerusalem, that is why they are happy wherever they are. Their spirits are already here. Their hearts are already here in the New Jerusalem, it is just a matter of time that their bodies follow.
Pretty soon, when they get so hard up in the world and the persecution is too much to them, it was going too hard for them to exist where they are, what they do is just fl y to the New Jerusalem and become full time workers, because spiritually, they are already here. They that are born in the spirit are spirit (John. 3:6). They will always go back to the spirit. And remember, our mother is not a physical one, our mother is the most beautiful spirit; her name is the New Jerusalem.
Revelation 3:12, “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Revelation 21:2 “And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”
Now you know who your mother is. You are born in the womb of your mother. What is the spirit of our mother? Why she is the most beautiful spirit in the sight of our Father, the Creator of all? Because it is the spirit that says, “Not my will, but Your will be done always no matter what. It’s not my duty to obey Your will, I love to do thy will.” That’s the spirit of the sons and daughters. We are like our Father and Mother.
That’s why the mixed DNA of our Father and our Mother is present within us. Wherever we go, we are not just contented just to look at all the people around us; but it is always our desire that they must know the Father’s will here on earth. We desire that they will become like us later on, and be born in the spirit. And wherever we go, when we become sons and daughters, we are not satisfied until the will of the Father is done in a certain place, by the people around that place.
It is always our desire that the sentinels of light will be born and the people will look at the light, and they will be taught about what we are saying here inside. Our characteristic, our DNA, our Father’s and our Mother’s spirit within us tells us that wherever we go, the rule of the Father must happen. And that we will teach everyone in those places to be born in the womb of our mother.
Religion has changed the name of our Mother and Father. But the real name of our Mother is the New Jerusalem. And the real name of our Father is the Almighty Father, our Lord Jesus Christ. My Almighty Father died and rose again. How about your father? Did he die and rise again? My mother came from heaven, what about yours? Did she come from Rome or from Utah? Whatever they are, earthly, my Mother is heavenly.
What is the spirit of my Mother? She is the most faithful of all; she only worships the husband-spirit of my Father. And she is the most loyal to her husband, my Father. She does not worship anyone but the Father. What about your mother? Does she make idols and worship to one of them? Every year, you are making idols and are putting a statue and worship those idols. Your mother has many devotions; that is why she is a harlot. My mother has only one devotion, and it is the devotion to do the will of my Father. That is why our Mother, who is here today, is a Spirit that you do not see. When you come to Davao City, this is the city that He has chosen, where sons and daughters will be born. This spirit is already here, covering this place where the first-born Son was born.
