What?!?! Appointed son of God? It is absurd!

Biblically speaking, God the Father Almighty was the One who appointed the kingdom to Jesus. The Great Commission was given on the basis of Jesus' authority ( Matt 28:18-20 ), and Jesus appointed twelve disciples to be with him whom he could send out to preach ( Mark 3:14 ).

By lexicon, to appoint means to select or designate to fill an office or a position, or to choose someone officially for a job or responsibility:

The term “son of God” is not exclusively attributed to the Prophet Jesus. In the Bible, it was also attributed to David, Adam, Israel, Ephraim as can be discerned from the following Biblical verses.

David was called begotten son Psalm 2:7, English Standard Version, King James Bible, New King James Version,  NASB 1995 etc.


“I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”

Adam was called the son of God, described as “was from God”, in Luke 3:38, the New Living Translation, Aramaic Bible in Plain English, etc.


“Kenan was the son of Enosh. Enosh was the son of Seth. Seth was the son of Adam. Adam was the son of God.”

 

Apostle Paul and his followers were called “the offspring of God”  in Acts 17:28,

Israel was described by God as “My first born son”, in Exodus 4:22

Ephraim was called “my sons” by GOD in Jeremiah 3:19 English Standard Version, Berean Standard Bible, New American Standard Bible, etc.


“‘I said, How I would set you among my sons, and give you a pleasant land, a heritage most beautiful of all nations. And I thought you would call me, My Father, and would not turn from following me.”

The term “appointed son of God” is a non-lexicon, non-Biblical and non-existent term. It is a concocted term aimed at creating a deceitful authority that has no factual, legal and Biblical basis.

On the late quarter of the year 2021, authorities in the California USA announced  In November 2021, prosecutors in California announced sex trafficking charges against Quiboloy, alleging that he and several others had sexually abused female church members aged 12 to 25 in exchange for privileges as well as avoiding "eternal damnation". Many of Quiboloy's assets have been described as ill-gotten. On December 10, 2022, the US Department of Treasury and Department of State imposed sanctions on Quiboloy alongside several other individuals in connection with corruption and gross human rights abuses.

By mid of the year 2022, the same man was conferred three (3) honorary doctoral degrees as well as twelve (12) other awards and recognition by the NASDP, GEU, UN-IGO respectively for his initiatives, accomplishments, and efforts towards nation-building..

In his own Article entitled “Where is the Appointed Son Prophesied in the Bible?” the self-proclaimed the “Appointed Son of God, Lucifer’s Conqueror, Owner of the Universe” (https://www.esquiremag.ph/long-reads/features/who-is-quiboloy-a00293-20191109) wrote and claimed ,

“This is why I am called the Appointed Son (Hebrews 1:1-2)….” https://www.apolloquiboloy.com/appointed-son-bible-prophecy/

So let us take a close look at the Biblical verses quoted by the self-proclaimed “Appointed Son of God”.

Hebrews1:1-2

 1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 

2in these last days (God) has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 

Take note that nowhere in the above quoted verses, the term “Appointed Son” or “Appointed Son of God” is written, and there was not even a slightest hint that the quoted verses refer to the self-proclaimed “Appointed Son of God”.

In fac if we continue reading Hebrew 1:1-2 until verse 5, one will be enlightened that the verses used as basis by the self-proclaimed’ Appointed Son of God” clearly refer to Jesus as quoted below:

3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 

4having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.

      5For to which of the angels did He ever say,
         “You are my son, today I have begotten you!
           And again,
         “I will be a father to him, and he sall be a son to me!”

Further going back to Hebrews1:2

2in these last days (God) has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world,

God referred to Jesus, His son, through whom He made the world, as written in the other verses of the Bible, in John 1: 3.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

2He was with God in the beginning. 

3Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.…

To the self-proclaimed “Appointed son of God” and to his blind and misguided followers, sorry, the Biblical verses used (Hebrew 1:1-2) do not refer to any living person nowadays but refer specifically to Jesus. To construe otherwise is blasphemy. Wake-up folks! Have mercy on your souls!
