Jude 1:4, “For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.”
How To Prove Apollo is an Antichrist
Apollo, like with all the other cults- once he got God’s nature wrong he began to preach another Jesus. Instead of following the warnings in Scripture he and his followers actually distort the Word of God to make their accusers out to be the antichrists! When in actuality they are truly the ones preaching another Jesus and gospel.
Sad but true, Quiboloy tries to use the Bible to claim that those who reject him as the Appointed Son of God are of the antichrist spirit. He writes, “If you believe Jesus Christ as the Word of God, who is God Himself, who was made flesh, you are of God. Two thousand years after, which is my generation today, this verse is still in effect. Do you believe Jesus Christ came in the flesh? The Second Coming is here. He has come in the flesh.” However, its actually the opposite, John said that only those who deny that Jesus, God the Son, came in the flesh, as the “one and only begotten Son,” are really the antichrists.
Read 1 John 4:2-3 for yourself and see, “2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” Apollo believes this verse applies to him, but how could it? Did Quiboloy exist previously in heaven before his birth like Jesus? Certainly not. These verses could only be referring to Jesus, God the Son, because He existed before eternity with the Father and came in the flesh through a virgin. Therefore, when Apollo preaches that these verses are referring to him he is a blasphemous egomaniac playing “make believe.”
Also, notice how John said, “Jesus Christ has come in the flesh from God.” This is another example of how the Trinity is proven true because like in John 3:16, God the Father sends God the Son. In other words, Jesus didn’t send Himself, He was sent! How can we prove that the person John is calling “God” in 1 John 4:2 is the Father and Jesus Christ is the “Son?” By continuing to read until 1 John 4:14, “And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.”
As a result, just studying a few verses in context we plainly see that it is Apollo who is of antichrist spirit because he denies that God the Father sent God the Son to come in the flesh. He believes that Jesus was the Father sending Himself as the Son (which makes no sense and contradicts the clear reading of John). Thus, Quiboloy cannot recognize the Spirit of God! For it is the Spirit of God that acknowledges and proclaims that God the Father sent Jesus Christ.
- Apollo denies that the Father and Son are separate persons, therefore, according to 1 John 4:2-3 he has the antichrist spirit.
- The apostle John taught in 1 John 4:2-3 & 14, that the Father sent the Son, and it was Jesus, not the Father who came in the flesh to be the Savior of World.
- 1 John 4:2-3 cannot apply to those who don’t accept Quiboloy because he did not come from heaven into the world to be our Savior by dying on the cross. However, we are actually commanded to reject him because he is a antichrist!
