Capt. Gerardo Gambala: From Mutineers to Army of God

Capt. Gerardo "Gerry" Gambala is one of the prominent figures alongside Navy Capt. and now Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, during the failed Oakwood Mutiny on July 27, 2003.  A group of 321 armed soldiers who called themselves "Bagong Katipuneros"  but popularly known by the media as the Magdalo soldiers.

During his time in prison he was visited by some members of the Christ Commission Fellowship. They showed to him the power of God and the ways to salvation and change through Christ alone and not by means of force. They had all time to do their Bible Study. Changes have really come along the way for this mutineer for he was able to believe in the power of the Almighty and continues to encourage not only the his co-soldiers but also for the people he have meet.

After 5 years in prison, his prayers have been answered for he was released under conditional pardon by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on May 12, 2008.

At this point in time he continues to spread the Word of God through the military ministry. Really God has changed this man from a rebel soldiers to a soldier of GOD.

Here is an interview of Gerry Gambala conducted by 700 Club Asia


  1. The life story of Bro. Gerry Gambala will certainly leave a mark in people who will hear and feel the transformation and sincerity of his heart. It is truly amazing how the Lord works in people's lives. The price to pay for the mutiny was sentence! But with God's grace, his life is now being used by the Lord to pierce through the hearts of multitude and impart the message that there is hope and fulfillment in the matter what! I thank Bro. Gerry for sharing his life and mission in life to the congregation of the GCF MV Marikina Valley. Surely his message will not come to naught! More grace to you and your family!

  2. Praise the Lord! As God is touching people's hearts before the imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ again.

    As the Lord said, Ye must be born again!

    One of the greatest sermon of the Lord Jesus Christ is found in John chapter 3.

    The only way we can get our name in the Lamb’s Book of Life and have the gift of eternal life is the new birth or being born again.

    Have you had that born again experience?

    Without it, you have no hope of escaping the terrors of Hell or enjoying the glories of Heaven.

    The sad thing of all, we are all separated from God and we deserve to be punished and will be eternally damned!

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    To be born again means to ask forgiveness and repent from your sins and to be saved from Hell and given eternal life.

    In order to be saved one has to confess that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Saviour.

    No man or organization can do anything to you that will make you a child of God.

    Only which is born of the Holy Spirit will make you a child of God because Jesus said, you must be born of the Spirit.

    Being born again or being saved is the work of God alone. The Bible declares: Salvation is of the Lord.

    You may be having been brought up in a somewhat religious background, but religion brought no peace to your heart and soul.

    You will soon realize something was missing in your life that religion had not given you. That thing that is missing, is your relationship to your Maker, the God who created you and He is our Abba, Father in heaven.

    Religion is the worst thing that ever happened to this world.
    During the time of Adam and Eve there was no religion.

    When they committed the first sin, it was their relationship with God that was broken and it resulted to the separation of man from God.

    The Lord Jesus Christ never introduced religion to humanity!

    Religion is a system of beliefs and actions that one subscribes to in order to express a devotion to whatever they place of highest value.

    Religions contradict each other; therefore, they cannot all be true.
    If they cannot all be true, it cannot be true that all religions lead to God.

    Religion tries to make it difficult for men to be made right with God.

    Religion makes it impossible for men to be saved.

    Only God can saves us from the fires of Hell.

    The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY said in the Old Testament, I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. (Isaiah 43:11 kjv).

    It means, only God is our Savior and no one else! Salvation is not found in a religion, but in the person of God’s only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ who died, buried and rose from the dead, and who said that He alone is the way, the truth, and the life. He alone defeated death, grave and Hell.

    Jesus Christ alone is the Saviour of the world. Yeshua (Jesus) and YHVH (Yahveh) are one!

    Warning: Before Judgment Day, the Holy Scripture warns everyone, ...Prepare to meet thy God...
