“Prophet TB Joshua was a special gift from God to humanity. He was a herald of the Gospel and agent of transformation, economic empowerment and spiritual liberation. He is known by the Christian community here in the United States and around the globe as a man of prayer, prophetic insight, a dynamic teacher, philanthropist and humanitarian.
For over 25 years, he has been a great source of inspiration through televangelism which has broadly impacted the religious heritage of many nations and the world . His life reflects the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 1:21-23 – “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far.”
He was indeed a 21st century prophet who has completed his assignment and has made his transition to join our great prophetic ancestors including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, John the Baptist and Zechariah. Several scholars have listed him among the world’s most famous prophets.
It was always our desire to have Prophet T.B. Joshua to minister at our gathering here in Washington DC but God had other plans for him in this time and season. We thank God for the thousands of lives that were delivered from spiritual, social and economic bondage through his ministry. He has fought a good fight; he has finished his course and he has kept the faith. May his soul rest in peace and light perpetual shine on him forever more .”

Jesus is a tomorrow thinker. We are made in our heart to be like Him. To be like Jesus is our goal. If you would be like Jesus, you are to be a tomorrow thinker. He is not so much concerned about our present as our future. Jesus said to the woman caught in the act of adultery, “Well then, I do not condemn you either. Go, but do not sin again” (John 8:11). When He met the man He healed at the pool of Bethesda, Jesus said to him, “See, you are well again, stop sinning or something worse may happen to you” (John 5:14).

They met for the first time in a hospital ward, both there for a mutual purpose: childbirth. However, the night unfolded and there were no signs of labour for either woman. The medical personnel present attempted to induce the labour process through various means without any seeming sign of success. Morning dawned and Esther soon started experiencing the early signs and pains of labour. Her time of delivery had arrived. However, her colleague Ngozi saw no differences and fear soon set in. After examination, doctors concluded that an operation was the only way for her to deliver safely. But God had other plans!
In (Luke 9:28-36) Jesus took Peter, James and John, and went up into a mountain to pray. As Jesus was praying, the fashion of His countenance was altered, and His raiment was white and glistering. There talking with Jesus were two great men of history, Moses and Elijah. These men appeared in glory, to speak of the death which Jesus should accomplish at Jerusalem. Unfortunately, Peter, James and John were deep in sleep, as many Christians are today. In (Hebrews 6-11), it says, “We will never know some things because of tired eyelids, we will never know some things because of carnal thinking”. They couldn’t see or record everything for us because they went to sleep. When they eventually awoke, they saw Jesus’ glory and the two men that stood with Him. Peter said unto Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tabernacles. One for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias”. While Peter thus spake, there came a cloud that overshadowed them. They feared as they entered into the cloud. A voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my beloved Son: hear him”.
In many similar ways, we receive the word of God from Prophet TB Joshua, the man of God in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN. God is using him and God is working out what He purposes us to be if only we will obey God’s word. One significant point being missed by many people in Nigeria, and across the globe, is the lack of appreciation either to God or even to Prophet TB Joshua for providing a holy arena like SCOAN for worship, healing, restoration, blessing and renewal of faith. Since the advent of covid-19, I have run out of the calculation of how many people should have visited Nigeria across the globe through SCOAN and be healed. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, an avenue to reach out to rescue the perishing and the dyeing was opened to SCOAN tagged “Distance is not a Barrier”. It can’t replace canonical mass worship, corporately praying together, or climbing the SCOAN altar in multitude with faith and joy of the Lord, or going to Prayer Mountain with other Christians all over the world. We miss SCOAN and like Peter, we are truly saying, “It is good to live in SCOAN”.
To Peter, it was a titanic stupendous occasion that three of them were privileged to be part of, out of the twelve. Those three men were privileged and chosen and set apart and allowed to be in a little portion of what took place on that mountain top. Peter recorded it that he was an eyewitness of the Majesty of Jesus Christ when they were with Jesus in the holy mountain (2 Peter 1:16-19). We are praying along with Prophet TB Joshua and looking forward to a time of Fellowship together in SCOAN the in the Arena of Liberty. Emmanuel
The man of God and the General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) Prophet T.B Joshua dropped a hint on the outcome of the United States America (USA) on the eve of its presidential elections. Although the Prophet had held back from directly stating who the winner of the polls would be, but he gave enough graphic description of the outcome and accompanying events. All of this is unfolding as the prophet said.
This is one prophecy that has shifted the position of news media from its harsh criticism of Prophet TB Joshua to more positive comments and approval. Those of us privileged to have firsthand knowledge of the man in SCOAN are not surprise of his accurate prophecies. We know that prophet TB Joshua is a Prophet of God and according to (2 Peter 1:21), “No prophecy ever came by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke, being moved by the Holy Spirit”. This is what is going on but our generation still thinks they can pick and choose amongst God’s prophecies.
Many online and print news media carried this prophecy positively whilst they had criticized the 2016 prophecy. The point here is simply to thank God for not leaving us in darkness but has given us a prophet like TB Joshua. We shall keep praying for our prophet and praying with him in a generation that can praise Jesus today but nail Him the next day. Thank you Prophet TB Joshua, more of God’s anointing on you. Thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Emmanuel.

In a prayer and prophecy video released on November 1, 2020, following his return from the Prayer Mountain on October 30, 2020, after four days of spiritual seclusion, Prophet T.B. Joshua reassured the nations on the sanctity of God’s Word and the unending efficacy of His power. In the video, the man of God started by saying, “I am here on the mountain where the year of fear, the year of humility and many other things was revealed in the past.” He added, “I have been here for the past four days to know God’s mind about the remaining two months of the year 2020.”
Regarding the Lord’s message for the nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained thus: “The matter concerns the issue of what is going on in the American election, the issue of what is going on in my nation, Nigeria, and all other African countries and the whole world at large.” As the recording was done on October 30, 2020, the man of God said, “I will be leaving today to share with you the vision I received. God bless you. Emmanuel!”
Holy Spirit-backed Prayer – Never Bound by Time!
After his short message to the people, Prophet T.B. Joshua offered prayers of release and healing to people all over the world. The prayer, which is not time-bound, is reproduced below. May you be blessed in the mighty name of Jesus Christ as you open up your heart to God’s Spirit.
“Lord Jesus, give me the courage to say the word you spoke on the Cross: ‘Into Your hands I commit my spirit.’ Whatever affliction, whatever sickness, whatever disease in your body – Lord Jesus, forgive them of all their iniquities and release them from all these afflictions. All these afflictions – release them, in the name of Jesus Christ! Affliction in their organs, in their internal organs – head to toe – release them, in the name of Jesus Christ! Release them, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Whatever affliction – strange affliction, strange pain in their system – be released, in the name of Jesus! Be released, in the name of Jesus! Whatever affliction in your internal organs, in your system, in your faculties – be released, in the name of Jesus! Be healed, in the name of Jesus! Be healed, in the name of Jesus Christ! I declare Galatians 3:13-14: Christ has redeemed you! Christ has healed you! Christ has delivered you! In the name of Jesus Christ!
No one enjoys being sick. Those on the sickbed – Lord Jesus, I place myself in Your hands. Work on them in the name of Jesus Christ! Heal them, in the name of Jesus! Work on their internal organs! Work on their system, in the name of Jesus! Deliver them, in the name of Jesus! Work on them, in the name of Jesus! Restore them, in the name of Jesus! Use me to restore them, in the name of Jesus! Restore them, in the name of Jesus! Whatever affliction in their internal organs, in their organs, in their system – whatever pain, whatever strange pain from head to toe – heal them, Lord, in the name of Jesus!
Deliver them, in the name of Jesus! Restore them, in the name of Jesus! Anything in their foundation that has subjected their life to struggles and contentions – be destroyed, in the name of Jesus Christ! Anything in your foundation that has subjected your life to struggles and contentions – be destroyed, in the name of Jesus! Be removed, in the name of Jesus! Be destroyed, in the name of Jesus Christ! Be removed, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Thank You, Lord!
Every limitation – be broken, in the name of Jesus Christ! Be broken, in the name of Jesus Christ! I remove the work of your hands from financial captivity, in the name of Jesus Christ! I remove the work of your hands from financial captivity, in the name of Jesus Christ! I remove the work of your hands from financial captivity, in the name of Jesus Christ! Be removed, in the name of Jesus Christ!
All powers that have tied you down to where you do not belong – be loosed, in the name of Jesus Christ! I release you, in the name of Jesus Christ! Thank You, Lord! In Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.”
Prophecy on the 2020 American Presidential Election
Having received Spirit intimations on major world events during his four-day stay on the Prayer Mountain, Prophet T.B. Joshua was moved to utter prophetic words on the American presidential election scheduled for November 3, 2020. As stated already, the man of God had sent the video from the Prayer Mountain on October 30, 2020 and released the prophecy on November 1, 2020.
“What is happening in the American election is as a result of the power in the tongue. The word we speak determines the life we enjoy (Proverbs 6:2). The tongue can either work for us or against us – death and life lie in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).
We Christians would have loved it to go the way we wanted. But the Bible says it is never proper to base our faith on our improvement after prayer. We should not worry. The joy is that the new Supreme Court Judge, Amy Coney Barrett, will be an instrument of check.
Finally, let us learn how to believe that God hears us when we pray – it is a much greater blessing. There is likely going to be pockets of resistance here and there, after the election, but nothing will change. Let me reserve what I am seeing until the inauguration of the new president.”

Here are excerpts from an interview which Prophet TB Joshua had with some journalists several weeks ago at The SCOAN Prayer Mountain. It was published today in This Day Newspapers.
QUESTION: What motivated the vision to create this Prayer Mountain, a ‘wilderness’ in an urban area?
ANSWER: This is where I started. I must have a library and a place where I can enjoy nature, not the air condition or fan, just nature as God created it. So, having nature around you is very good. God is nature Himself and without nature, you cannot understand the Bible. Because the Bible is not history; when you are reading the Bible, you are reading the Holy Spirit. So, if you don’t allow nature when you are reading, you will be reading history. You need some places like this – where you leave everything outside and come and hear the cocks’ crow. But outside of here, whatever they are doing, you can’t hear because of the noise. So, this place is very important to me – this is where I live, this is where I sleep and do everything.
If I want to meet people outside of here, I go outside. There is a time for that because the Bible says that there is time to rest and a time to work. Time to rest is time to receive from God and time to work is time to give what you receive from God. When you talk of time to rest, this is the best place to rest, not in the midst of technology or going to New York or travelling about but you rest in the midst of nature.
QUESTION – How did this Prayer Mountain start, given that this place was once a swamp?
ANSWER – This swamp is the rejected stone. God spoke to me and brought me here. I have been following God’s vision, God’s mission. When I am out of God’s mission, I am finished. That is why you cannot see me outside of here; you cannot hear me.
God’s time is the best and I always follow God’s time. So, I have been following God’s time; that is why you will not see me preach every Sunday or go on television to preach every day. I must hear from God before saying anything. Every time can be good for you and every time can be the best time for you but for me, I must have a corresponding grace or power because the Holy Spirit must suggest what to do before I do them. If not, I will not be able to have God’s result.
This is why you are not seeing me out there – at weddings, social occasions, coming to your offices to grant interviews. This is the only church – The SCOAN here in Ikotun. There is no other branch anywhere else in the world but it touches everywhere in the world. I am waiting for God to let me know if there will be branches or not; the important thing is that we should focus on building the people and not the church.
QUESTION – Why don’t you open up this place for tourists?
ANSWER – The people will soon get to know about it. We are just waiting for God’s time. There are many things to be done in this place. We are at about a 70 per cent completion rate. So, if people should know about this place now, we would not be able to complete this job because it will cause distraction. When we are at about 95 per cent completion level, we will let people know. It is going to be by grace. It is not something you pay money for; you can come and see people moving and praying. So, people will get to know; we are waiting for God’s time.
QUESTION – What do you have to say about your family and their involvement in the ministry?
ANSWER – I am very happy about this question. I have a wife and I have children. My first daughter is doing her PhD and my second daughter is doing her master’s degree. In all, I have three daughters. The last one is still in secondary school. I would have loved my wife to be like me but I cannot make her what I am; it is God. I can’t anoint her; God is the one that anoints people. This is not a biological issue; it is an inheritance from the saints – being a partaker of the inheritance from the saints. So, therefore, I should not use anything in my biological life to stop my spiritual life.
As for my divine nature, I am a partaker of the inheritance of the saints. This is an apostolic ministry; it is not a ministry where you read the Bible, go to theology school, get your certificate and you start preaching! No. It is purely divine. So, it is so difficult for me to display my wife, she has to be ready for God. As much as you are ready for God, God will display you.
QUESTION – How do you take such criticism that your ministry has faced?
ANSWER – It is always good if at the beginning they don’t see what is good about you. If they don’t see your journey at the beginning, they will criticise you. It is good for you in the end. So, if they praise you from the beginning, it is not encouraging. If Nigerians have been accepting me right from the beginning of my mission, I think that would have affected my mission to the world.
I have gone all over the world. I am the first minister of God that went to Nazareth, Israel where Jesus was born and organised a revival there and the news was carried in newspapers all over the world. After the crusade, a certificate was given to me by the State of Israel. That is the greatest joy for any minister of God!
QUESTION – But why was there so much controversy about the Nazareth Crusade?
ANSWER – Because it happened to Jesus, I cannot be greater than my Master. A tenant cannot be greater than his landlord. If the landlord is criticised, who is a tenant? That is exactly what happened to Jesus. They said no. The Muslims were on the streets protesting along with Christians, Catholics and all. But I let them know that God sent me to do the revival in Israel. And top Israeli government functionaries came. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also sent his representative.
The prayer recipients had connected from far away Germany, Bolivia, South Africa, Ghana, Zambia, Portugal, USA, among others, hoping for a miracle. Prophetess Angela reached out to them in faith from the Emmanuel TV Studios in Lagos, Nigeria. Despite the great distance, it was proved yet again that God’s power is more majestic in distance.
As the prophetess began prayers, the power of God travelled through distance into the homes of the people as every stronghold of satan in their lives was broken in Jesus’ name! Poisonous substances were vomited, medical supports were removed and joy replaced tears!
Attesting to God’s healing, saving and restoring power, they happily confessed their freedom.
Gabriel, whose health had seriously deteriorated after he was shot in the dream and came down with severe waist pain, glorified God for his thorough healing as he discarded his body brace and lumbar corset.
Josue also testified that he could run and breathe well without a nebuliser, as his problem of asthma since birth was now a thing of the past! He happily played basketball, confirming his total healing! Thank You, Jesus!
God will provide rest for His faithful followers who are troubled, those who are being persecuted, and for us also when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with His mighty angels, in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don’t know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and His glorious power. When Jesus comes on that day, He will receive glory from His holy people, and praise from all who believe. This fellowship includes everyone who must have given their life to Jesus, for they have believed what the scriptures and the prophets of God have told them about Jesus, the Saviour of all mankind.
Prophet TB Joshua
Our prayer warriors are on their knees praying to make sure the changeable ones are changed. Prophecy is a guide to life. This is the Word of God.
Happy New Year!
THESE PROPHECIES WERE RELEASED ON 28 DECEMBER, 2019 BUT MADE AVAILABLE ON 5 JANUARY, 2020.
PROPHECY FOR 2020 – PROPHET TB JOSHUA
PROPHECY FOR THE WORLD:
This year will be a year of HUMILITY. This year, the Lord will humble us with our challenges. Challenges can be affliction, arrogance, pride, wickedness or bad habits. To humble us with these is for those things to destroy us or expose us. Let us move closer to God.
Agriculture will help the economy because the economy will have a backlash. People should invest in agriculture. Let us farm to help the economy.
There will be a common medicine that will cause people to be ‘high’ to die, to commit suicide, to think of what can lead to death. The governments of each nation should watch out and put a check on pharmaceutical drugs that come to their country.
America should invest more in agriculture because their economy will be affected. The economy they see today will be affected, so they should invest in agriculture and encourage their farmers. Also, approach to the security issue will affect the candidates and swing voters in the next election. It will be tough in the election. They should pray against a recount. It may be too tight.
Let us pray for the Nigerian government to be able to finish this year without an interlude that will cause a situation of for and against. Join me in praying for my nation.
Vice President, it is not yet over. Expect much more pressure. The pressure will be so much. I pray you will be able to stand the pressure. We join you in prayer.
Many sicknesses and diseases that leaders have been treating privately will surface this year. They will become bedridden and many will not make it.
Russia should pray for their leader to avert his being on the sickbed. Something will surface. There is a ladder to go up – if this is averted.
An incident will happen to the nation Iran that will cause panic throughout the world. We are praying to know the mind of God concerning this.
Work of God – people will be getting tired this year because the work of God is not by power and might; because of so many challenges, tribulations and burdens they will not be able to bear.
United Kingdom – there will be agitation from a section that wants to leave; that will become an issue. Also, pray for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh against going in and out of the hospital; pray for God to give them revival. Pray for unity and understanding among the Royal Family – because of what I am seeing. Brexit needs more time to stand on its feet – with more co-operation of the EU leaders. If not, there will be economic repercussions and the cost of things will become unbearable. With time and preparation, all will be well.
NOTE: PART TWO WILL BE RELEASED AFTER THOROUGH CONFIRMATION FROM GOD. THIS IS JUST PART ONE. PART TWO WILL BE RELEASED AFTER THOROUGH CONFIRMATION FROM GOD. THE REST WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE ON OUR OFFICIAL SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS.
On Tuesday 24th December 2019, a special Christmas Service at the Manger Square in Bethlehem – the historic birthplace of Jesus Christ – was broadcast live on Emmanuel TV, the popular television channel belonging to Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua.
Representatives of TB Joshua were received personally by the Mayor of Bethlehem, Adv. Anton Salman, who sent a greeting to the Nigerian cleric and said the message of Bethlehem to the world would “always be a message of peace, love and justice”.
Mayor Salman then gave the Emmanuel TV Choir unprecedented access to celebrate Christmas in the world-famous Grotto at the Church of the Nativity, historically regarded as the site where Jesus was born and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Joined by US Gospel Artist VaShawn Mitchell, the choir recorded and sang a song composed specially by TB Joshua in honour of the season.
According to the lyrics: “Christmas is not only about Christ of history. Christmas is not only about Christ of story. Christmas is not only about baby Jesus. Christmas is about Christ the Spirit reveals to us.”
Moving to the Manger Square, thousands of local residents in Bethlehem and tourists who travelled from across the globe to celebrate Christmas at Jesus’ birthplace, gathered to celebrate with the Emmanuel TV choir.
“This season reminds us of the message on the Cross – ‘Father, forgive them’,”TB Joshua said in a message delivered by one of his evangelists to the throngs in attendance.
“This means that whether you are a victim or a perpetrator, we all stand in helpless need of God’s Divine forgiveness,”he continued.
“This season, make it a point of duty to love others just as you would want God to love you, to bless others just as you would want God to bless you and to forgive others just as you would want God to forgive you.”
After singing two new songs composed by TB Joshua titled ‘Who On Earth’ and ‘Jesus Is The Reason’, VaShawn treated the crowd to a rendition of his hit song ‘Joy’.
It is not Joshua’s first involved with the ‘Holy Land’. When the cleric visited Bethlehem in 2017, he saw an “urgent need” in the kidney division of the Beit Jala hospital and bought six new dialysis machines to help the patients.
He also held a two-day crusade at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice in Nazareth, Israel in June 2019 which attracted thousands from around the world.
The SCOAN Sunday Service began with a rich offering of songs of praise and worship which ascended to Heaven, causing an outpouring of God’s Spirit upon the congregation as many received salvation, healing, deliverance and breakthrough, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
As it was the day after world-renowned Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke passed away, the man of God T.B. Joshua called for a minute of silence in honour of the departed God’s General. Prophet T.B. Joshua then stated that it was all about Jesus Christ and not about himself or Evangelist Bonnke. He began his message for the day by telling congregants they can only maintain their blessings by gaining the power to read the Bible with Holy Spirit-inspired understanding. He said when we read the Bible we have to approach it as the mind of God, which is also reading us as we read it.
Insisting that quality (or depth of understanding) is to be preferred to quantity (coverage of Scripture), he advised, “Read your Bible slowly, attentively and repeatedly, with forgiveness because we need corresponding power to understand what you are reading.” He therefore admonished Christians against trying to get ahead of the Holy Ghost and instead let go of all offence as they seek God’s face. Moreover, the man of God said that sincere prayer comes from the heart, hence the need to worship God in Spirit and truth. “Our heart is the prayer room,” he stated, even as he urged the people to model virtues such as humility, love, pardon, goodness and forgiveness.
On his part, Prophet Racine exhorted the church on the topic “AN APPOINTMENT WITH JESUS.” He quoted 2 Corinthians 6:2, “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” The kernel of his message was the need to rely fully on Jesus Christ for our needs, for “no one is hopeless whose hope is in Jesus Christ” and “there is appointment in disappointment if God is involved.” To make Jesus be for us what we want Him to be, we need to discover our weakness so that we can discover our need for God’s strength, he said. Prophet Racine closed his sermon with the words: “Believing in Christ Jesus redeems our life. Believing in Christ Jesus redeems our way. Believing in Christ Jesus redeems our time.”
Stepping into a time of prayer, the name of Jesus Christ indeed brought redemption to multitudes as they cast down their medical devices, walked out of bondage and ran into the light of Jesus Christ! Testimonies followed…
In Romans 15:1-3, the Bible stresses the need for us to always appreciate the fact that we are not evenly gifted. The strong should strengthen the weak with all their substance. What is your strength? Your strength might be in the area of money while mine is in the area of divine knowledge; yet another’s may be in the area of wisdom, counselling, healing or craftsmanship. Whichever area you are strong in, you are expected to use it generously to strengthen your fellow brother. This is the true meaning of ‘true friendship’.
Anyone who gives to others is, according to Apostle Paul, charitable. When you are in the business of giving charitably – I mean, sowing into other people’s lives – God, who is the Dispenser of all good, would give you, in His mercy, abundance of good so that you might enjoy sufficiency and abound in good works. So anyone who gives to others is conscious of the future. To the carnally minded, money, service or sacrifice given in charity may seem thrown away but when given in proper attitude and intent, it is seed sown from which greater increase is expected.
Works of charity should be given carefully and cheerfully in thought and design. It takes grace to give cheerfully. Those whom God calls for any service, He will make fit for it. If you are called to run by God, He will help you to maintain the speed. God wants you to run but with a purpose. If God calls you for what you are doing, He will make you fit for it. To maintain true friendship therefore, we should spend less on ourselves and more on others. This is the only way we can commit more faith and love in the society of which we are a part.
It is the goodness of our cause that interests God, more than our physical and mental disposition. This explains why the young, rustic and seemingly inexperienced, tactless David could defeat Goliath in battle. This explains why weak people like me, who are without great strength, fast legs or smoothness of the tongue should ever remain grateful to God for the purpose HE has designed us for. HIS divine cause is what we are born for, it is what we are living for and it is what we are going to die for. As a Christian, when you understand this philosophy of life, you will continue to strive, press on – after that divine cause for your life.
After struggling, after our hard labour, God would still have to mark our work. When we have done everything, we must leave the issue with HIM. If we succeed, we must give HIM all the glory. However, there are factors beyond human control, which stand for unexpected events. We may meet failure and setback in those very plans we have promised ourselves high success and satisfaction. If we fail, we must submit to HIS will, for we may not know when our time is coming. Remember, everyone has a divine cause; the way and manner God executes HIS plans in people’s lives differ. That is why we should give all glory to HIM in success and submit to HIM when things seem otherwise.
“Let us have a minute of silence for one of God’s Generals – Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. May his soul rest in perfect peace.” The entire congregation rose solemnly to their feet. Respect. Honour. Acknowledgement. A day earlier it had been announced that German Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke had passed onto glory at the ripe age of 79. “It’s all about Jesus, not all about T.B. Joshua. It’s not about Reinhard Bonnke; it’s all about Jesus.”
Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of the SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, probably needs no further introduction; even as the fearful year 2019 he had predicted is coming to an end. However, the light coming out of SCOAN through the class of prophets, prophetess, preachers, evangelists, choristers and all manners of Church administrators being raised by this prophet of our time would require a study on this enormous illumination. We have no sufficient statistics to back up our explanation on how many miracles, or simply how many families and individuals had benefited from TB Joshua ministries this year 2019 alone. It is simply a phenomenon, awesome, and beyond ordinary scientific explanation. We thank God for all that came out of SCOAN in the year 2019 despite its gloominess and the changing fearful world. Every Church of Jesus Christ needs to be this alive, with the great Jesus Gospel, His power and authority over all the principalities and powers.
Now our God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ, (2 Corinthians 4:6). A lamp could not be hidden under a bowl as it would be rapidly extinguished by its lack of oxygen. In any case, one wouldn’t light a lamp simply to put it out. Hence we wouldn’t attempt to cover the glory of God coming out bright and strong from the SCOAN. If only 50% of those who had received healing, breakthrough, deliverance, and salvation of souls, had been able to maintain what they received, by obedience to the Word of God, every country in our planet would have got a measure of the illumination we are trying to describe. Yet many others had stayed in their different distant communities and only exercised faith in Christ Jesus through Emmanuel.TV and are maintaining the blessings because Jesus is everywhere, and ready to respond to our genuine call to Him for help. If you have received Christ in your heart then let the lamp shine on all who are in your house, within your community, and all those who come into the house or you come across in your daily walk. This seems to be the common message from SCOAN being led by TB Joshua. The prophet has put the message simply as being “God’s channel”.
Meanwhile (John 1:5) “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. Again this is the message wherever Jesus chooses to operate this season of Christmas. Only one thing is needed from everyone this season, that is a praise of Thanksgiving. Like Mary did in Matthew 26:7,12 “There came unto Him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on His head, as He sat at meat…..(Jesus responded) For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.” This Mary had encountered Jesus earlier in her life, a woman afflicted by many demons. What she did was not only a Thanksgiving but actually timely. The other women who went later to anoint the body of Jesus would have returned home with their equally expensive oil because Jesus had already risen by the time they got to His grave-site.
Therefore if you see the light beaming out of SCOAN today, kindly respond positively to the call of Jesus immediately, because another opportunity may never come. Jesus is alive and the proof is in Prophet TB Joshua’s ministry. Get your soul and body anointed with the precious blood of Jesus Christ before you encounter death to ensure resurrection. Join the disciples of Jesus today and become alive and an effective witness. The SCOAN, an arena of liberty and a platform for us to express our faith, hope and love freely and independently in Jesus Christ.
In February 2018, when the doctors told him he had colon cancer, Mr David Ogen would not have been very surprised. After all, for 25 years he had been addicted to smoking, a very expensive habit in the United Kingdom where the Slovakian lived with his wife. The doctors had told him: “After chemotherapy, we will operate on you but it’s fifty-fifty. You see, if you survive the operation, you may lose the capacity to use your male organ for procreation.” And that wasn’t at all a cheerful prospect for Mr Ogen, so in July 2018 he ran to a place of refuge – The SCOAN. Meanwhile, before visiting, he had found himself using the toilet at least eight times a day, eventually leading to his quitting paid employment. After prayers at The SCOAN, he returned to the doctors in the UK and told them the operation was off! “You must be joking,” they sneered at him. But he knew his faith had made him whole. Then the doctors tested him and found his tumour had disappeared! They tested him two more times – and the tumour was still nowhere to be found! Luckily for Mr Ogen, the anointing that dried up his tumour also took away his desire for cigarettes! What was more, he became the proud father of a beautiful baby girl about a year later. Mr Ogen and his wife returned to The Synagogue to testify of the Lord’s goodness in their lives. Clutching her “miracle baby” close to her chest, Mrs Ogen advised people to look for a Bible-believing church and to wait for God’s time.In February 2018, when the doctors told him he had colon cancer, Mr David Ogen would not have been very surprised. After all, for 25 years he had been addicted to smoking, a very expensive habit in the United Kingdom where the Slovakian lived with his wife. The doctors had told him: “After chemotherapy, we will operate on you but it’s fifty-fifty. You see, if you survive the operation, you may lose the capacity to use your male organ for procreation.” And that wasn’t at all a cheerful prospect for Mr Ogen, so in July 2018 he ran to a place of refuge – The SCOAN.

If you find yourself in any unpleasant condition as a Christian, you should not despair but believe the more, have faith the more, pray the more and fast the more – because the situation is meant for your belief, just as you see your good times as a reason for your belief.
In the case of Paul and Silas, bodily pain counted for nothing. Instead of the beating and humiliation they received in the hands of the Roman officials and the mob to make them abandon their cause, I mean their faith, it made them have faith the more, believe the more and praise God the more (Acts 16:23-25). When Paul and Silas were imprisoned at Philippi and their backs were raw from beatings, they sang hymns. They chose the bright colour of praise instead of the dark colours of depression, bitterness, despair, self-pity and rejection. No matter what affliction or crisis we may face, we too can decide how we respond.
In the case of Stephen, the fear of being stoned did not scare him to abandon his faith. The more he was stoned, the more he confessed Christ, the more he became stronger in his belief, faith and conviction. At each stone they cast at him, he confessed, “Jesus is Lord!” He saw his pain as a reason for believing God just as he did his good times (Acts 7:59-60). The death of Stephen only seemed like death but it was not. The prison condition experienced by Paul and Silas only seemed like jail but it was not.
Prophet T.B. Joshua
At the beginning of the year 2019, Prophet TB Joshua prophesied that the year 2019 would be fearful. Those of us who had been following him for several years keyed into the prophecy. We knew from his prophecy that 2019 was going to be full of dreadful challenges and only faith in Jesus would see us through. Ordinarily, it had been expected that most of the fear would come from individual attitude to the unknown, all the possible negative feelings and thoughts that would drive our emotions. In short, the prophecy impacted on us that despite the challenges therein living our lives to the fullest was going to be by His grace.
Nevertheless, no Christian should live under any fear, even the fear of the unknown, and expect answers to prayers or joyous living. This is because when we choose to live with the fear of the unknown, the choices and decisions we make would not serve us well nor make us holy in obedience to Jesus. Each Christian should learn that Faith or encouragement in Christ had not been the absence of fear, but our belief and trust in Him is what guarantees our triumph over fear. Every day in the year 2019 had been fearful. In many parts of the world, many had experienced different degrees of political upheavals, terrorism, xenophobia, extreme weather conditions, economic depression, unemployment, food insecurity, and so on. There were physical reasons to have made us living our lives in the fear of the unknown rather than in the fullest potential possible in Christ Jesus. But His grace had been sufficient, making us over-comers.
As we consider the prophecy of TB Joshua, and desire to find a place for our prophet in the scripture, at least two prophecies come to mind. In Daniel 12: 4 it is written,”… ., even to the time of the end, many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased”. This increase in knowledge has given birth to Emmanuel.TV and other Christian satellite broadcasting stations. In Matthew 24:14 Jesus has also prophesied that “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”. Hence though a fearful year, over 500,000 million people worldwide must have listened to the gospel through Emmanuel.TV this year 2019.
Therefore the fearfulness containing in the outgoing year has been beyond mere apprehension of physical and temporal situations around or fear of the unknown. Rather it is becoming more obvious that Jesus is on His way for a harvest of His faithful followers. Jesus made this known in Luke 21:17-20, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not a hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh”. There are still a few days left in this year 2019 for each one to let the Word of Salvation go out freely from our mouth, otherwise, they remain only fearful days ahead.
After a horrific accident, Mrs Virginia Ohiri developed a hideous ulcer that grievously affected her left leg and refused to heal. She was forced her to depend on her husband and child for all forms of support. “For two years, I could not do anything and my son even had to suspend his schooling to help me,” she explained. Despite visiting top hospitals, she felt no relief so she decided to take her case to God. At The SCOAN, she received prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ and Prophet T.B. Joshua declared healing upon her. Virginia said that her leg became cool right after the prayer and immediately, the ulcer began to heal. Virginia later returned to church to report the state of her leg – the gaping sore was now dry. Her advice to the whole world was simple yet profound: Run to God for solution to life’s problems – He alone is the Problem Solver.
Prophet TB Joshua
As students of the Bible, the former rain refers to the first Pentecost, that is the descending of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after His Accession to Heaven. It was a big breakthrough for the earthly Church. It brought them renewed strength, boldness, encouragement, empowerment and growth. The latter rain refers to a future Pentecost. This message comes to mind when prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria, recently prophesied of “a cooling rain” and then the coming of Seraphim. We are waiting for these events because TB Joshua has accurate prophesies and speaking what God sends him to.
The prophecy was probably and primarily meant for Nigeria but the entire global system is in complete chaos and disorder at the moment. We see rioting and protesting everywhere on our TV daily. Only a divine intervention can introduce a new peaceful and orderly system. With a dynamic man of God, Prophet TB Joshua, full of faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, awaiting the fulfilment of the coming calmness is with certainty.
It can be recalled that at a time the children of Israel were in similar distress and eventually God sent an angel to Gideon and empowered Gideon on the deliverance mechanism of Israel from their oppressors, (Judges 6). Whereas Gideon armed himself with 32,000 fighting men only 300 trumpeters were used by God. And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place, (Judges 7: 7).
Already many sections of the societies are taking their deep personal problem to The SCOAN for a guarantee solution because of Prophet TB Joshua. This is a personal achievement of an individual prophet of our time. What we pray for also is that all true believers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to com
