From one Spirit-inspired song to the next, The SCOAN Choir filled ‘The Arena of Liberty’ with a joyful praise as people of different races and tongues gathered to worship God and thank Him for His help in times past, His help today and His help to come. By the time they were done, it was clear that the Spirit of the Lord is indeed in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations.
Prophet T.B. Joshua’s message focused on firm belief as the key to receiving from God. He read from Mark 9:19, the passage where Jesus chides His disciples for failing to exercise enough faith that would have seen them heal an epileptic boy. “The problem of believing is made simple when we know that it is acting on what God has spoken,” he said. He urged believers to be sincere to themselves on their standing with God, insisting that “If you are a Christian, you can know.” However, he also noted that having belief does not prevent one from facing trials and temptations. After further words of exhortation on the need to hold God to His Word through unwavering faith, he urged congregants to confess their weakness as they wait upon the Lord for the promised blessings. “A prayer of faith,” he said, “should be followed by an absolute trust in God that He is now working out the answer.”
