Prophet TB Joshua Back From the Mountain Top With Renewed Anointing

Prophet TB Joshua, SCOAN, New Morning Water

In Mark Chapter 8 Jesus taught His disciples series of lessons. For example, Jesus asked them, “Why doth this generation seek after a sign?” But He also said to them that “There shall no sign be given unto this generation”. Again He asked them, “Whom do men say that I am?”, and, “But whom say ye that I am?” To which Peter answered, “Thou art the Christ”. Then six days after Jesus took with him Peter, and James, and John, and led them up into a high mountain apart by themselves and He was transfigured before them. There Jesus’ raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. When they finally came down Jesus taught every one of us a golden lesson saying, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”, (Mark 9:23).

Before the end of the year 2020, it was made public on Emmanuel TV that Prophet TB Joshua was on a mountain praying. To his critics, they would think that the publication was self-gratifying but to his followers, we were praying along with him so that God would locate our cases. Jesus had said our generation wouldn’t be convinced by signs but Jesus had blessed Prophet TB Joshua with a new awesome breakthrough in the form of a “New Anointing Water”. Jesus has given Prophet TB Joshua a renewed anointing. I am incapable of either writing or commenting on this phenomenon breakthrough but I can say that Prophet TB Joshua knowns about the suffering of the world and that he cares. He is a Prophet with “Faith in Action”, not one asking you to sow seed before you get from Jesus but to have faith in Jesus Christ. We congratulate Prophet TB Joshua by saying “Thank You Jesus” from the bottom of our heart.

We hope the prophet will soon reveal his vision about the year 2021. We all know that 2020 was full of challenges and it became part of Prophet TB Joshua’s concern and prayer points whilst on the mountain. The secular world with its agenda has developed various vaccines to combat the ranging covid-19 pandemic. The unpalatable consequences of covid-19 are going to be felt from henceforth. Our only hope is our unshaken faith in Jesus who already knows everything. Jesus is working with His holy prophets and He is also willing to use any one of us. The current New Anointing Water introduced by Prophet TB Joshua is his version of “Faith Vaccine”, not just against simply covid-19. We pray the prophet will find time to pray on Emmanuel TV for all people who have faith in it to “Touch the Screen of their own TV” and experience God’s touch in their various homes across the globe. Jesus had said, “All things are possible for him that believes”. We believe, Lord Jesus, that you are the Son of God and the Messiah of the world, kindly help our un-believe. Emmanuel

LEAVE YOUR NEXT TO GOD

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. John 14:1-6

The greatest cause of human fear is the worry about tomorrow. As we have entered the New Year 2021, it is an opportunity to reflect on all that the year 2020 has taught us. We have learned so much in the year of humility with its unprecedented challenges; we don’t need any greater sign to tell us to come back to God.

Whatever you may be facing today, you can restart your life today by leaving your next to God. ‘Next’ means one minute from now, one moment from now – your future. Today is yours but tomorrow belongs to God. So, don’t be discouraged if your today looks so bad. Remember no man can tell by the present signs and situation what the future holds for him. Our Lord Jesus Christ was born in a stable; He didn’t stay there. Don’t let your mind stay in failure, don’t let your heart dwell in pain – because when you walk with the Lord, He will walk you through whatever life brings.

Jesus was known More By What He did Than What He Said

tb joshua, mountian, 2020 prayer
Prophet TB Joshua Praying at Mountain Top

In (Luke 24:13-35) on the road to Emmaus, right after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the resurrected Jesus joined Himself in walking with two of His disciples on that way. These disciples didn’t recognise that it was Jesus walking with them on the way. “That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were kept from recognizing Him”, (Luke 24:13-16).

Why the two disciples recognized Jesus in the breaking of the bread and not in the teaching and exposition of the scripture on their way to Emmaus might have been designed to be so for our learning. However, the disciples might have got used to how often they had seen Him break bread. Jesus often brought down the wrath of the religious elite upon Himself because of His dietary customs. He ate food with sinners and tax collectors in violation of the sanctimonious taboos of His day. He would refuse to send His followers away until they had been fed. His followers had seen him take a little boy’s lunch of two fishes and five loaves, bless this food, break it, and then distribute it to a throng of people that numbered in thousands. It is easy to recognise Jesus, a generous Friend like no other, a Lover of humanity, the Bread of Life, One ready to abide with us at the slightest invitation. Jesus had taught His disciples that when they fed another who was hungry, it was as though they were doing it to Him. These were among the flood of memories these disciples brought with them to the table at Emmaus. Maybe it is no wonder they recognized Him in action, perhaps their little bread became big enough for all three of them after Jesus blessed it.

To start the New Year 2021 Prophet TB Joshua in his usual characteristic went to a solitary mountain to pray and communing with God at a mountain. The prophet went up the mountain seeking the face of God for divine intervention on the cure for the afflictions currently facing the entire world. Prophet TB Joshua has both compassion and empathy for the general human race. The result of his prayer at the mountain is that he has been mandated to release some messages in addition to releasing some faith materials for the year 2021; the New Anointing Water and the New Anointing sticker, tagged “Not Mine But God’s Own.” Those of us following TB Joshua would be able to recognise him more by his actions, by his laying of hands, generous giving, etc, and not just the excellent teachings the Televangelist gives his global listeners daily. People will keep coming up to Prophet TB Joshua for prayer and to build their faith because the prophet is realistic and practical. While the rich world is investing heavily in vaccines the prophet is praying and investing in faith-building materials.

The question to ask ourselves is whether our actions have ever helped others to recognize Jesus today. Whether we carry the mark of Jesus Christ. Whether we are willing to be clothed with the “Promise of the Father” to witness for Jesus in our chaotic world. James (James 2:15- 16) said: “If a brother or sister is ill-clad and in lack of daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go and be filled’, without giving them the things they needed for the body, what does it profit?” If anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? (1 John 3:17). Luke told the story in his gospel “of all that Jesus began to do and teach” (Acts 1:1). In emulating Jesus Christ, or even His prophet TB Joshua, each person must go out and labour for Jesus this New Year, because we are going to be known more by our work in action as the field, is ripe for harvest. Emmanuel!

FAITH TOOLS FOR 2021! – TB Joshua

Tb Joshua,  Anointing Water, 2021 Prophecy

After a long period of communing with God at the Prayer Mountain, seeking His face on the cure for the afflictions facing the world, Prophet T.B. Joshua has been mandated to release the faith tools for the year 2021 – the New Anointing Water and the new Anointing Sticker, tagged “Not Mine But God’s Own.”

He said: “Let us talk about cure because of what is in this prophetic message for this year, 2021 – cure of affliction. This so-called monster, COVID-19, generally known as affliction, has three stages. We are getting to the end of the first stage. The second stage will be tougher than the first stage but it will not affect all countries. Some countries will be affected while others will not be affected. The third stage will be tougher than the second stage. The two last stages will not be widespread like the first stage. This is why the Lord gave me these faith tools – the New Anointing Water and the New Anointing Sticker, tagged “Not Mine But God’s Own.”

The world has gone bad such that we no longer trust our neighbours and our neighbours no longer trust us. We need a sign to show that this New Anointing Water and New Anointing Sticker came from God. In Judges 6:17, Gideon said to the Lord, “Give me a sign to show that You are the One talking to me.” In like manner, we need a sign today because the world is full of confusion and disbelief. As you receive this Anointing Water, set aside a day to ask for mercy and forgiveness.”

Rest assured that these faith tools will rescue you from the curse of affliction, the curse of financial crisis, the curse of business failure and the curse of career failure, etc. The New Anointing Water – never a sickness it cannot heal, never an affliction it cannot cure, never a problem it cannot solve, in Jesus’ name! Emmanuel!

THE GREATEST MIRACLE OF PROPHET TB JOSHUA

tb joshua, scoan
Prophet TB Joshua

The Ministry of Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) is known for the massive and consistent healings, deliverances and works of charities that take place there year in year out. Once the name and ministry of the prophet are mentioned, the first thing that comes to mind is the unimaginable signs and wonders that God does through him and his anointed Wise Men, Evangelist, Prophet and Prophetess.

Have you ever thought what might be the greatest miracle of God through TB Joshua?

Several persons might say the recorded miracles of TB Joshua raising the dead is the Prophet greatest miracle. Many might as well not agree with that. Some sceptics have even questioned the authenticity of such a miracle. Asking if there was a death certificate issued by the authorities to verify that the deceased was indeed dead before they were purportedly raised by the Prophet. To them, it sounds too good to be true, that TB Joshua could indeed raise the dead.

Another group might say the greatest miracle of TB Joshua are the numerous cancerous and ulcerous healings that take place at the SCOAN especially those ulcers that infect the sensitive body parts of their victims that are too graphic to behold.

Some might also argue that his greatest miracle is the healing and deliverance of the homosexuals, the restoration of the transgender to their natural self.

Others might as well say that the greatest miracle of TB Joshua is the HIV/Aids healing since till date there is no medical solution to the virus. Also, some might say they believed his greatest miracle is when the Prophet sent his Anointed water to Nations that were affected by the deadly Ebola virus epidemic.

While others might disagree with the above-stated miracles. Some persons might say the greatest miracle is the “Distance is not a barrier” prayer seasons where the Prophet and his evangelist pray for people around the world virtually from the comfort of the SCOAN studio in Lagos, Nigeria.

Just Like the virtual prayer season for patience in isolation centres around the world that were infected with the dreaded Coronavirus disease, but received there instant healings and deliverance after prayed for by the Prophet

However many might still not agree with these. What might be the greatest miracle of TB Joshua? If Prophet TB Joshua leaves this world today. What will be that miracle that will stand out as his legacy?

tb joshua, Scoan, emmanuel tv
These great men and women that were raised by God through the Prophet and more to come are the greatest miracle of TB Joshua

The greatest miracle of TB Joshua is not the massive healings, deliverances and charitable works God has done through him. The greatest Miracle of TB Joshua is those he raised and mentored to do the same works as him – the Wise-men and Women; the Prophets and Prophetess; the Male and Female Evangelist.

Those great men and women that were raised by God through the Prophet and more to come are the greatest miracle of TB Joshua.

They are the once that will continue to sustain the Prophet’s legacy as he is here and even after he finally depart to God’s kingdom above.

What endures the legacy of a Man of great deeds for centuries to come are not the works of his hands alone, but the men and women he was able to raise or mentor to be like him – to do the same work he is doing.

Prophet TB Joshua will not only be known by the signs and wonders God has done through him but by those he raised to be like him – to have direct access to God. These will be the greatest legacy the Prophet will leave beyond his lifetime. That is the greatest miracle of Prophet TB Joshua.

Appraisal of TB Joshua Ministries in the Year 2020

tb joshua, scoan prophet

In the secular world, the year 2020 may go down in history as the worst year ever, at least to those of us living in it now. It started with great flames that destroyed over 46 million acres in Australia, racial unrest broke out in the USA fueling more disunity in that community, record-breaking hurricanes in many places, and then covid-19 pandemic raged across the planet. Across the globe, covid-19 has infected some 80 million and killing more than 1.7 million people so far and it is still unabated. Despite the introduction of different types of vaccines, the world is experiencing a second wave of the virus, and the emergence of new strains reported to be more contagious than a previously-known strain. The year 2020 was a terrible, horrible, and a very bad year in the eye of any natural man. Covid-19, rather than the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus, or world unrest due to wars in hot spots, the new challenges facing democracy especially from the aftermath of US 2020 presidential election, the growing social inequalities across the globe, growing large scale of unemployment, hunger, homelessness, general poverty, etc; covid-19 alone makes the headlines in the news media in 2020.

The prophetic ministry of TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, from the beginning, described the year 2020 as “A Year of Humility” he said would be starting from March 2020. At that time nobody saw covid-19 in the horizon nor that it could cause the lockdown of even SCOAN normal worship programmes; services we had all come to value. Covid-19 is no respecter of any person, continent nor race. It has come to humble world Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings and the Princes, and the same way as an ordinary man on the street. Worship places and learning institutions were locked down for most of the year. It has been a humbling year indeed as prophesied by TB Joshua.

Nevertheless, in October 2020 the President of the Republic of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit sent a special invitation to Prophet TB Joshua to come to his country for the prophetic intervention of peace. It would be recalled that Prophet TB Joshua had prophetically intervened in that country the year before. South Sudan, the youngest nation, is also one in which the world organizations have been trying to negotiate peace but where human wisdom is failing. But God has the final answer and can use Prophet TB Joshua. We believe that God will honour Himself and establish peace in South Sudan.

Another milestone recorded by SCOAN in 2020 was the “Distance is Not a Barrier to the Move of God”. This slogan is not new in the scripture but we don’t know any other ministry in history that has used it in the scale of SCOAN. Jesus Himself used it in an encounter He has with the centurion who came to receive healing for his servant, (Matthew 8:8-13). The centurion had come and said to Jesus “Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldest come under my roof. Speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed”. Jesus said unto the centurion, “Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee”. His servant was healed in the selfsame hour. This is a ministry Emmanuel TV used during this covid-19 to heal many of her viewers of diverse illnesses, with covid-19 just a special case. In (Ezekiel 12:24-25) the Lord has said, “I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it”.

Hence for the Church of Christ in SCOAN, under Bishop TB Joshua, it would be said that the year 2020 had many challenges but everything therein was for the glory of God. In human terms, we try to estimate how many people would have benefitted from the free but divine services of SCOAN if there had been no lockdown but we’d run out of calculations. SCOAN Arena is a typical Church and for those who believe a Spiritual Clinic at the same time. Those healed by faith and prayers become as if nothing has ever happened to them. Jesus Christ the Christmas born Messiah of God’s people shall continually heal us, now and in the coming years. The year 2020 might have truly been very humbling, even for the Church of Christ, the global health, every economy, every institution, and every individual, but it has been “as the prophet said it would be”. We also know that this prophet may have a message for the world about the coming year. We encourage us to listen to what God may be saying. Happy New Year and may God keep you, bless you and make His face shine on you in 2021.

Emmanuel! God Is With Us!

OUR NEW HOPE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Our Saviour was born this day years ago. But long before He was born, Prophet Isaiah prophesied the arrival of a child who would become our new hope saying, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6).

Christ was born at Christmas and through this seed, God has taken away our sin and purchased for us total pardon. The seed gave Himself up as a living sacrifice for our sake to heal the broken-hearted, to comfort those who mourn, to release the captives and defeat their enemies. In other words, Jesus is the Glorious Light who came to dispel all shades of darkness in our lives. What a great love God has for His children.

Therefore, as we mark the occasion of our Lord and Saviour’s birthday – let us remember Christmas is not only about Christ of history, it’s not only about Christ of story, or baby Jesus – it’s about Christ whom the Holy Spirit reveals to us. Meditate on this as you celebrate this special season.

Who is This Jesus of Christmas to You?

Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, a predominately Gentile area, located some 25 miles north of Bethsaida where Jesus had just healed the blind man, (Mark 8:22-26). Here is where Jesus asked his disciples, saying, “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” They answered, “Some say that thou art John the Baptist, some say Elias; and others say Jeremias or one of the prophets”. Then Jesus asked His disciples, “But whom say ye that I am?” Their spoke man Simon answered and said, “Thou art the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the Living God”, (Matthew 16:13-16). Jesus didn’t ask this question, “Do you have any idea who I am?” to throw His weight around, or because He wasn’t sure of His identity, rather He asked the question to help His disciples come to the right knowledge.

Today our lives continue to be filled with questions, relevant or irrelevant, some will have answers but many others are unanswerable. Some of the questions are very mundane and routine. For example, people may be asking questions such as, “Who is TB Joshua?”, “Is TB Joshua human?”, “Are there angels in SCOAN”, “What food does TB Joshua eat”, “Are these miracles real?” etc. Other questions may be helpful and very relevant, “Can you arrange for me to see TB Joshua please?”, “When does SCOAN have its next prayer line service that I can attend?”, “Will God forgive my many sins?”, “Is it true that Jesus is the Son of God? etc.

Jesus responded to Simon and said unto him, “Blessed art thou, Simon son of Jona, for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven, (Matthew 16:17-19). A correct answer to every question earns a lot of credit points whereas inability to come to the right answers is a failure with all its consequences. Simon got it right and the foundation to build the Church, got a new prophetic name as Peter, the keys to open and to lose, with open access to heaven.

Everyone needs to know whom Jesus is and accept and worship Him based on a true conviction. Even in Jesus’ time, not every voice in that day was lifted against Him. Some people knew Who He was and proclaimed Him openly. For instance, John the Baptist got it right, (John 1:29-34), the Angels got it right, (Luke 2:9-14), the old man Simeon got it right, (Luke 2:25-35), old Mama Anna got it right, (Luke 2:36-38), the dying thief got it right, (Luke 23:42), the Roman Centurion got it right (Mark 15:39), the blind man got it right, (John 9:38), the crowds outside Jerusalem got it right, (John 12:1), and even the demons got it right, (Mark 5:7). What are people saying about Jesus in our day? Or what are you saying about this Jesus, Who is He to you?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN SECRET?

The SCOAN Sunday Broadcast began with songs of praise and worship to the Almighty God, the Alpha and Omega. With melodious songs composed by Prophet T.B. Joshua, the Emmanuel TV Choir welcomed the Holy Spirit who knows no barrier of distance or time. On the performance roll call of songs composed by God’s servant were “I Live To Worship”, “Loved By God”, “Flow From You”, “Yes Lord” and “No One Like You”.

Prophet T.B. Joshua began his message by asking viewers to tune their hearts to the heavenly frequency as he cited 1 Corinthians 12:1-3, Ephesians 1:16-18, Matthew 15:8, 1 Corinthians 2:7-13 and Luke 24:45.

The message focused on the indispensable role of the Holy Ghost in living the victorious Christian life. He asked: “How many of us seek the attention of the Holy Spirit before calling the name Jesus? How many of us seek the attention of the Holy Spirit while counselling, teaching, preaching, praying?” Prophet T.B. Joshua likened the Holy Spirit to the key to a closed door and to light in a dark world. “The Word will remain on our lips without the Holy Spirit,” he said. Putting it in another way, he said: “The Word will remain inactive, meaningless and oftentimes destructive without the Holy Spirit.” He therefore advised Christians to seek to please the Holy Spirit both in the open and in secret because whatever we do secretly and privately will determine what we can do in the name of Jesus. Holy Spirit is more interested in what we do secretly and privately. He further said, “The one you serve in secret, in private will stand to reward you in the open.” He concluded by saying, “We are more of His friend in the open but more of His enemy in secret and in private.”

In praying for the viewers, Prophet T.B. Joshua asked the Lord to fill them with His faithfulness, holiness, obedience, humility. “Fill them Lord, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus, strengthen their faith and trust in You. Oh Holy Spirit, think through them till Your ideas are their ideas,” he prayed. He also prayed for those that are sick that Jesus should strengthen them and touch their bodies with good health.

Yinka, Angela, Anne, Chris and Racine not only read the email testimonies but also had a studio session relating to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s message. Chris began by noting that the world has been engulfed in crises mainly because people have failed to be their brother’s keeper by not extending a hand of genuine love to all irrespective of their social, religious or political affiliations.

Against the backdrop of Matthew 5:45 – “…He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Chris said: “It is more pleasant to do good to the ungrateful than to do good to the grateful people, for then we have God as our Paymaster.” Urging people to help others without expecting anything in return, Chris said that “we begin to live a life of victory when those who pray for us are more than those who curse us, want us to die, want us to be destoyed, want us to fail.” He therefore urged viewers to put the needs of others before theirs and ensure to sow a seed of goodness every day.

Angela added to the message by identifying two forms of help: help for God’s sake and help with expectation (Luke 6:32-36). She said that helping for God’s sake will attract God’s attention. On the other hand, if we help with expectation, it is not in Spirit and in truth and so is “all nothing”. To love without expectation is to show love without expecting anything in return from the person we have shown love to. When we love without expectation, our love is being sown to the Spirit. She therefore urged the viewers: “Sow to the Spirit, not to the flesh.”

A TEST OF GENUINENESS

On Sunday, December 6, 2020, the power of the Holy Ghost manifested powerfully again during The Distance Is Not A Barrier Interactive Prayer Sessions as people from all over the world received healing, deliverance and salvation in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

Before the prayer sessions, Prophet Chris gave a word of encouragement to viewers, using vivid illustrations for his message titled “A Test of Genuineness”. In the message he talked about challenges to walking in the light of God’s Word, noting that the moment one nurses “the desire to do what is right,” one immediately begins to face a battle either within or around one. He took his reading from Matthew 15:21-28, the passage in which a Gentile woman of exceptional faith refuses to be discouraged while Jesus tests her faith, eventually securing instant divine healing for her demon-possessed daughter.

On that note, Prophet Chris urged viewers to expect trials and tribulations when on the path of genuine Christian service, as such challenges toughen the Christian for future promotion. In his words, “Many have been hindered and handicapped from fulfilling their true potential because they gave up in the face of the very things meant to usher them to their destiny.” He therefore advised Christians not to be distracted by persecutions and battles but to forge ahead in resolute reliance on God’s promise of salvation, knowing that the “battle you face before receiving your miracle is necessary to help you to value your miracle when it finally comes.”

Maintaining our miracle, Prophet Chris added, is mostly a matter of wanting what God wants and wanting it for the reason God wants it, that is, the salvation of our soul. To achieve this, he further said, one must not only seek God genuinely but also learn His way through the help of the Holy Spirit. He concluded: “Genuine faith can find encouragement, even in that which seems discouraging, and get nearer to God. For it honours God to believe Him even while every sense contradicts Him – and God honours those who honour Him.”

Interactive Prayer Sessions:

Literally from the four corners of the earth people connected with The Emmanuel TV Prayer Team during the Distance Is Not A Barrier Interactive Prayer Sessions. From Singapore in Southeast Asia, for example, Thomas called in over his problem of obstructive sleep apnea, alongside his wife Ong who had severe back pain. From South Africa, Elizabeth called in over her problem of knee pain, just as Myrna did from The Philippines over her problems of myoma and gallstones as well as other ailments.

From northwestern Europe Sjaak and his Cuban wife also petitioned God over their COVID-19 infection. God’s power pierced through the computer screens as Prophet Chris prayed the petitioners and the evil deposits in their systems were flushed out in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Laura, a Venezuelan living in Panama, also received prayers over the problem of Barrett’s oesophagus, just as Shalom from Indonesia displayed the large volume of poisonous substances that came out of her during prayers, leaving her sight now bright and clear.

For all of these people, good health is now their happy portion as they have discarded their medical aids forever.

In the second session people across the continents also received healing, deliverance and salvation during prayer from Prophetess Anne.

Among these were Debbian, a Jamaican living in the USA, who was healed of sleep apnea and no longer needs her breathing machine; Idah from Zambia, who threw away her neck collar after being healed of spondylosis; Sugei, a Mexican living in Mexico, who received her healing from fibromyalgia, varicose veins and nerve damage; Eugene from Russia for whom insomnia became a thing of the past immediately after prayers; Ivon, a Cuban woman living in the USA, who received healing for the pain in her spine; and Kelly from Colombia, who was delivered from the spirit of oppression, discouragement and sadness.

Although doctors had told him that his case of spinal spondylosis could only worsen with time, Christopher from Trinidad & Tobago had that negative report cancelled when he took his case to Jesus Christ at the third interactive prayer session with Prophet Racine.

Priti from India could also smile again after being healed of difficulty in walking due to a spinal problem, just as it was the case for Rose from Canada, who also received her freedom from spinal pain after six long years. Similarly, Lazarus from Zambia got a divine touch that has now freed him from COVID-19.

To the glory of God, Janet, a Nigerian based in Abuja, no longer needs pain-relief medications or surgery for the degeneration of her knees. Christian who had punched a hole in his wall said he felt happy to be delivered from the contrary spirits troubling his life.

All to God’s glory, Anne from Sweden could swallow food and drink again after her healing from mucus congestion in the throat. Similar cases of joy came from Latvia, the Netherlands, South Africa, and Ukraine, among others.

“I want to see God’s glory! I want Jesus to heal me!” so had requested Violeta, a woman from Peru, who had five discal hernias and suffered arthrosis in both knees, causing her to use knee braces. Nsolo, a Cameroonian man living in the USA who had spinal lumbar stenosis, also sought Jesus’ healing hands during the fourth interactive prayer session. Like Violeta, his wish was granted and he no longer needs his lumbar corset, knee brace and a host of other medical devices.

The situation was similar for Hanizah from Singapore, who had serious knee and ankle pain; Love from the UK, who had difficulty in walking. For nurse Daniel, a Ghanaian resident in the USA, it was COVID-19, which he suffered alongside his children and wife. For 10-year-old Morgane, who lives in France with her mother Mariane, affliction had come in the form of asthma and allergies since age two.

All of these problems and more were commanded out of the people’s lives during the fourth interactive prayer session with Prophetess Yinka also involving people in Moldova, Pakistan, Mexico, Tanzania, Panama, Hong Kong, Canada, Honduras, Kenya, and the UAE.

Diversity was also obvious in the fifth session. From the northeastern European country of Estonia, for example, erstwhile national opera icon Pirjo opened her heart to God’s power as she sought prayers for restoration of her fading voice following demonic attacks.

During the prayer session with Prophetess Angela, Pirjo fell under the limitless power of the Holy Ghost as she received her deliverance. When she got back up, her voice had been restored for the glory of God. Similarly, in the eastern part of Africa, Tanzanian woman Kobusinge was delivered from the addiction to eating red soil.

During her testimony, she said red soil no longer tasted like chocolate to her. Other afflictions that vanished in the people’s lives included COVID-19, sleep apnea, difficulty in walking, asthma and colon cancer, to mention only a few.

Dolores and her husband connected from Venezuela and as they shared their testimony of healing shared a touching vision that they had received during the prayer session that it was angels who were working in the Emmanuel TV Studios healing people in the Interactive Prayer Sessions.

Message To Partners

Prophet Racine thanked those who have remained steadfast in contributing their time and material resources to the progress of God’s work while also meeting the needs of others. “It takes a mature mind,” Prophet Racine observed, “to maintain a balance between our responsibility to God and our fellow man, especially when the two tend to conflict because of challenging circumstances.”

Regarding the ongoing economic crunch, therefore, Prophet Racine cited Galatians 6:2, 9-10 to encourage partners never to give up in doing good and relieving others of their burdens. “As partners of faith,” he said, “your love, your strength, your commitment can get them out of their desperate setbacks. He also noted that tests and trials are unavoidable, hence the need for Christians to steady their hearts by knowing the will of God.

Concerning challenges to the Christian’s faith, Prophet Racine assured viewers thus: “Do not let it hinder your heart toward your neighbour; instead, reach out with compassion and generosity to a troubled world.” He also cited 2 Corinthians 12:9 in reminding partners not to base their faith on immediate improvement after prayer, given that answers to prayers may be delayed or not granted in order to preserve a believer, prepare them for a new level in life or strengthen their desire and determination for God. He concluded: “Therefore, let us be strong in the Lord – strong to serve, strong to continue to reach out to the needy in this troubled world, knowing that genuine love never gives up; it perseveres for the best, which is yet to come!”

God Wouldn’t Hide What He is doing from His Holy Prophets

TB Joshua, SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

God is still saying something and this has become part of Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and his ministry of prophecy. Hence when you hear the word “Prophet TB Joshua” what comes to your mind? Do you think of a man with some mystical powers that enable him to see the future? Or does your mind go to the Bible, thinking of high-profile prophets like Samuel, Elijah, Daniel or John the Baptist? It is a great honour to be chosen as a prophet of God, God’s spokesperson of any generation. The position demands total obedience to God, courage, diligence and selflessness; and fortunately, God is always with them every step of their usual hard way. They don’t have to rely on their human strength, wisdom, opinion, or confidence, otherwise, they may derail and fail.

The Bible mentions several occasions when God spoke to His people. For example in (Genesis 18:17); The LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?” Also, God called out to Adam in the garden, even though He knew where he was hiding (Genesis 3:9). God spoke as a man to Abraham, even though He already knew how the conversation would proceed (Genesis 18:1–3). Jeremiah said that “The Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me, Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms to root out and pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant” (Jeremiah 1:9-11).

The events in Genesis 18 is very appropriate here where the Lord visited Abraham and his wife Sarah. When Abraham saw three men coming he ran to meet them cheerfully and generously entertained them. After the entertainment and the further confirmation of the birth of Isaac, the men got up to leave and Abraham walked along with them. They were now four “men” standing and looking at the city of Sodom, a city that would soon be in flames, in the distance from a high vantage point. One of the four men was Abraham. One was the Lord in human form. The other two were angels, travelling companions of the Lord on this mysterious journey. By this time, Sodom had already gained a reputation for wickedness (Genesis 13:13). God chose to make Abraham aware so he would be all the more convinced of God’s power and sovereignty. This patient process would also emphasize the extent to which Sodom had fallen.

Today prophecy is confused with forecasting or prediction and prophet confused with terms like a seer, future teller, etc. In science, we build models for prediction and forecasting. The prophecy that comes from the Lord is where God makes His plans known to man for the congregation to be edified and to appreciate the awesome power and sovereignty of this Almighty God. Prophet TB Joshua has many gifts of the Holy Spirit including the gift of prophecy. Every God’s gift is after all for the edification of the Church of Christ. A human model built for forecasting the future trend, say covid-19, is deemed good enough if it gets it right 70% or more whereas prophecy is the exact revelation of God’s plans because God puts His Word in the mouth of the prophet.

For instance, the rest of the world had predicted that Africa would be a major death centre of covid-19 but God has been kind to Africa to this period because God’s prophet is here in Africa. The estimated population of Nigeria is 209 million while that of the USA is 332 million. The officially reported death statistics due to covid-19 in Nigeria currently is 1184 given a per capita death rate of 5.67 per million. Similarly, the USA has at this moment recorded 285351 deaths from covid-19 and a per capita death rate of 859.49 per million. Even the vaccines being produced around the world are too expensive for most Africans to buy. It must be that there is at least a prophet of God in Africa. Prophecy is walking with God and hearing from God and relaying God’s message as sent. Abraham was able to plead for the release of his nephew Lot and his household otherwise they might have gone with Sodom firework of God. God is still actively saying something audibly through the prophet in SCOAN.

EMMANUEL!!! GOD WITH US!!!

EYES OF FAITH

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel Tv

When we look around the world today, what we see is frightening – economic oppression, physical oppression, political oppression and demonic oppression. However, the opening of our eyes of faith is the silencing of our fears. Eyes of faith see beyond the pain and joys of life to the Creator, instead of the created. Eyes of faith see beyond the present situation to where God is. Eyes of faith see beyond the human point of view to see life the way God sees it. When God looks at you, He doesn’t see a victim but the victor He created you to be. When God looks at you, He doesn’t see a loser but the successful person He created you to be.

In Him we live, move and have our very being (Acts 17:28). Therefore, it’s high time we rekindle our senses from above and align our sight, our vision, our dreams, our ways, our will with God’s will and Word so that we can see what He’s looking at, know His opinion of ourselves and others and work with His projects.

Therefore, whatever your situation may look like, let your heart rise and seek the things that are above because God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8). When Jesus becomes the CEO, the Boss of your life, everything becomes different – you think differently, dream differently, have a sensitivity that you never had and the privilege of letting the Creator assist you in all you do.

Thank God for Giving us Prophet TB Joshua and SCOAN in Times Like This

tb joshua 2020
Prophet TB Joshua

The Bible teaches us in (Mathew 7:13-14) to “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and few find it.” Hence when we proclaim to you that Prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop and Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), is unique and different from others of his contemporaries we are also claiming that TB Joshua is following Jesus’ described “narrow way”. All the signs and wonders we see daily in SCOAN should be examined by the Word of God and also the life and teaching of Prophet TB Joshua. In history, SCOAN is a replica of the early Apostolic Church of Christ.

Whilst many are still dwelling on “What’s going on in SCOAN?” others have moved ahead to asking more salient questions and receiving personal encounter from Jesus. Why has God given the word this TB Joshua with such an enormous wealth of knowledge and power at this time in history? Is Jesus’ coming so near? Why is the kingdom of darkness in such disarray by the advent of TB Joshua and so aggressive against SCOAN? Those who are world kings and presidents live in palaces and have authorities but they have only limited power. The authority given to TB Joshua is from above and endowed with enormous power to teach, heal, save, deliver and make reconciliation. Millions of people all over the world have visited him, some like me repeatedly, we find him humble, consistent, precise, reliable and true.

Therefore don’t join yourself with those on the other side only criticising, or playing the envy and jealousy cards. Go with a free spirit and find out yourself. Go with the mind that the Church of Jesus Christ is one, Holy and True. The world needs to get the best possible out of every God-given Prophet TB Joshua but it won’t see anything in the spirit if it starts from a wrong footing. Despite only one Church building in a remote part of Ikotun Egbe, Lagos Nigeria, SCOAN is known worldwide. Cases from across the world that have defiled medical solution, marriages that are in the brink of collapse, addiction of many years, wayward characters and familiar spirits, all of them come to SCOAN, and God answers the prayers of His people there. SCOAN is uniquely different and the Nigeria nation needs to recognise this and provide necessary encouragements. We thank Jesus for giving us a Prophet TB Joshua at this time, and may we know all the reasons why God has done this. Emmanuel

ANOINTING WATER TESTIMONY – MIRACULOUS DELIVERY MOMENTS BEFORE OPERATION

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!

Here is their wonderful faith-building story, in Esther’s own words, as God wrought a miraculous wonder in the hospital ward through the medium of the Anointing Water.

“Emmanuel, God is with us. My name is Mrs Onyekachi Esther Nwoye from Anambra State and I have a testimony to share concerning the Anointing Water.

“On the 17th May 2011, I went to the hospital along with the Anointing Water to give birth to my second child. On getting there that day, I met another lady Mrs Ngozi Mbah who also came for childbirth. One funny thing about both of us is that we did not see any sign of labour at all. We only came according to the doctor’s instruction that we should come for induction – that is, to induce the baby because the baby is due.

The Anointing Water

“In the evening that very day, the doctor induced both of us with a tablet which he inserted into us. All through that night, we did not see any serious sign of labour though I personally had some changes in my body. So both of us were now neighbours and we started relating to each other. There were three other women who saw signs of labour with us and they all gave birth that night.

“In the morning, they checked our body and removed the tablet which was inserted into us and changed it with a hot drip to fasten the labour process. After some time, I went properly into labour whereas this other lady, Mrs Mbah, started weeping and crying uncontrollably. It got to the extent that the doctor’s attention was much on her and when he examined how far she had gone with labour, it was observed that it was just 1cm whereas I had gotten to 6cm, against 8-9cm for childbirth.

“After some time, the doctor concluded that her case was different and that she would be going through an operation (Caesarean Section). This made the lady to cry the more; she was so frightened. Seeing her pitiful condition, I could not hold back any more. Immediately, they removed the drip from her, cleaned her up and her husband signed for the operation. After they had finished cleaning her up, she came back to the labour ward and was still crying. At that time, I introduced the Anointing Water and The SCOAN to her and asked her if she believed that if I used it on her that she would deliver her baby safely. She accepted. Immediately, I ministered the Anointing Water three times in her mouth, also doing the same thing to myself. I left her with the words, “It is well”

“After some time, she went out and urinated. According to her, she felt something had passed out from her body. Then it was the time for her operation. They took her to the theatre and while the doctor was dressing up, the nurses were with her, preparing her for the operation. They had shelved her, fixed the urine rubber on her and were about to inject her. They asked her to lie down but, according to her, she did not know what pushed her up and she sat down and began telling them that she wanted to excrete. They refused to allow her and were quarrelling with her right there in the theatre.

“All of a sudden, her baby began to come out! One of the nurses saw what happened and immediately asked her to lie down. In a matter of minutes, the baby came out – while the doctor was still dressing up for the operation! It was not up to one hour that I also gave birth safely. When she came to the ward, she was crying and told me that the God of T. B. Joshua has delivered her and we hugged each other with tears in our eyes, celebrating. I am sharing this testimony to the glory of God and to build other people’s faith. Emmanuel!”

RENEW YOUR BOND

RENEW YOUR BOND, tb joshua, scoan

Every man’s heart directs him when he is in want or distress to call upon God. There is a bond between you and God because He is your Creator. You can deny God, you can ridicule Him and even ignore His presence but His love for you remains constant and unchanging.

No one can love you as much as the One who created you. If you feel far from God today, He has not moved, He has not changed; He is your Father and it is time to renew your bond with Him. If the prodigal son in Luke 15 had known that his father would receive him back with open arms, he would have left the suffering of his wasted life earlier.

Don’t wait for a more convenient time to reconcile your account with God and ask for forgiveness because the only barrier between you and God is the sin in your life. Repentance is our only hope of receiving God’s mercy and when you receive His mercy, you become connected to the One who made you. Then, everything becomes different – you think differently, you dream differently, you have a sensitivity that you have never had, and have the privilege of having the Creator assist you in all that you do.

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God” (2 Corinthians 5:20).

COURAGE TO COMMIT

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Lord Jesus, give me the courage to say the word you spoke on the Cross:
“Into Your hands I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46).

Even though our Saviour faced the ultimate trial, He surrendered to the will of the Father. He committed His spirit, knowing that acts of faith are but acts of self-surrender – putting an absolute stop to our own way, own work, own thought and to rest in God’s love, wisdom and power.

The word commitment is no longer taught or practised today. We are afraid to commit our word, our trust, our loyalty, our heart because our pride demands for us to always be in control.

Little do we know that the path of humility is at the risk of rejection. True humility is total dependence on God for everything. Have you committed everything to Jesus because He is interested in the little things?

Salvation is more than just saying, ‘Lord Jesus I am a sinner. Wash me with Your precious blood, save my soul today’, and then going on your merry way. Salvation is a total and complete commitment to Jesus. Don’t forget, it is commitment that asks Jesus to accept you and if you are truly committed to Jesus, He will take up satan’s challenge against you.

So, don’t look back, don’t be afraid; today ask Jesus for the courage to commit to Him your lifetime.

Missing the Glorious Fellowship and the Presence of God Enjoyed in SCOAN

tb joshua, scoan
The SCOAN

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 Power of the Tongue on US Election by Prophet TB Joshua

tb joshua, usa election, trump,

A few days before the United States of America November 3, 2020, presidential elections Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN told the world what God had revealed to him at the Prayer Mountain. He said, “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)”.

What is unfolding after the said US 2020 presidential election had been foretold by Prophet TB Joshua in very simple by graphic details. How the tongue of candidates had affected the outcomes. Apart from running what looks that abusive and combative campaigns certain candidates also instructed their supporters in battleground states not to vote early but in persons. We now know that in Georgia for example 20,000 of such supporters couldn’t make it in person on Election Day and didn’t vote by mailing either following their leaders’ words. In the end, the numbers between the winner and the loser are fewer than 13,000 votes.

You may be wondering, why it is so important that we take control of our tongues. James 1:26 says, “Anyone who says he is a Christian but doesn’t control his sharp tongue is just fooling himself, and his religion isn’t worth much.” Hence we must not only be Christians who attend church services every time the door is opened, but we must also fill our mouths with word of psalms, word of praise and rejoicing. This is so important to Prophet TB Joshua that he has made “Faith Bracelets” for his followers to keep us in a constant mood of meditation rather than filling our mouths with criticism, complaining, gossiping, or backbiting each other.

Prophet TB Joshua also said, “There is likely going to be pockets of resistance here and there but nothing will change.” Our prayer is that the citizens of the United States of America will go through their trying period successfully. The internal division within their society can result in a major civil war or a lingering division that will put their constitution into the test. With God, all things are possible, if only the society would listen and obey the Word of God. Emmanuel.

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR BATTLE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

We live in a world where the enemy will never allow God’s purpose to be fulfilled in our lives; you need to put up a fight – that is why we need God.

The Psalmist said in Psalm 27:1, “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” The day you make a total commitment to Jesus, you have declared war against satan. By identifying yourself with Jesus of Nazareth, you have made yourself his bitter enemy. That is why he wants to try and get you to see God in a bad light and is happy when you feel like giving up in the face of trials. Many of us don’t know that difficulties, challenges and seemingly impossible situations can be our greatest friend. They force us to look deeper, pray more and realise that the purpose of life will never be fulfilled without heat of trials.

In Matthew 4:1-11, in the heat of His trial, when Jesus was tempted, He did not cry out, murmur or rebel. His defense was quite simple; He simply quoted the written Word of God and satan became demoralised and paralysed.

Each time you act on the Word of God, something enters your heart that increases your assurance. As you prepare yourself for battle, your only responsibility is to trust the Holy Spirit, to keep His Words in your mind, mouth and every conversation. His Words are your weapons.

Prophecy of the Outcome of USA 2020 Presidential Election

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.

PRAYER AND PROPHECY FOR THE NATIONS

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.”

THE WORD OF GOD IN OUR HEART!

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN Emmanuel TV

Jesus’ focus is the motive behind what you do. Jesus tests our heart to give us according to our effort. What is the state of your heart? Your heart must be at its best for God because the Spirit of God expresses Himself through our heart. The Word of God in our heart is our contact with God. It is His contact with us.

Whatever your heart engages on influences your conduct and your character. If your heart does not contact the Word of God, nothing can be achieved in God. Jesus Christ said in John 14:23, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” This shows that God does nothing without His Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). No one can live above trial and temptation without the Word of God in his or her heart.

Our doing the Word, living it in our daily lives, practicing it, trusting in it, acting on it – that is our secret. Yielding your heart to the Word of God makes the Word a reality. When the Word becomes a reality, you become God-minded and Word-minded. When you become God-minded and Word-minded, in the morning, your spirit unconsciously goes to Him for guidance and wisdom for the day.

NEWSPAPER INTERVIEW WITH PROPHET TB JOSHUA

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.

WHERE IS YOUR TREASURE?

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field” (Matthew 13:44).

What do you treasure in this life? Is it wealth, possessions, fame or relationships? If you look around, you will agree with me that treasures on earth have a habit of disappointing us because we do not know if we will be around tomorrow to enjoy them.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:20-21 “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Many may ask, “How can I store up treasures in Heaven?” Possessions and money alone cannot bring contentment but giving them to help others can. The reality of our salvation will be judged by our willingness, cheerful eagerness to part with our possessions for the good of others. That is how you can seek first the Kingdom of God. This is how you can build up treasures in Heaven.

So, take time to draw closer to God. In this uncertain world, amidst the twists and turns of life, the only way you can be safe is if your treasure is in the hands of God.

A MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

“And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.” (Acts 13:22)

In our hearts, we are made to be like Jesus. Are you a man or woman after God’s own heart? When you are a man after God’s own heart you will have a ‘hugged’ heart with God; your heart will agree in relationship with God. If your heart agrees in relationship with God, what is seen, what is heard, whatever may happen, will not affect your relationship with Him.

As a Christian, you may not always get it right but always remember that God loves you and values your relationship; you are His temple – where His Holy Spirit dwells.

We are known by our fruits. Only our character can testify to our confession of Christ. To be like Jesus, we must live in Him. To become God’s person, a Christian, born-again, you must be remoulded. It is essential to serve God with a willing heart, for the love of the heart is the only genuine principle from which a genuine relationship with the Lord can spring.

You are a work of art. The Holy Spirit wants to be Lord of your life so that you will no longer be in command of the little vessel in which you sail. Are you ready for Him?

End SARS: Revolution in Nigeria, ‘everybody will be ready to die’ – How T.B Joshua warned

tb joshua, scoan
Prophet TB Joshua

As the protests over police brutality engulfing the nation of Nigeria steadily grow in momentum, a video of TB Joshua prophesying a ‘revolution’ instigated by Nigerian youths has resurfaced on social media.

The video, which was originally aired seven years ago on July 14th 2013, shows Joshua sharing a revelation to the congregation of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which he titled ‘Carry Your Youths Along’.

“I am seeing a revolution,” the cleric bluntly began, adding that “every revolution starts by protests”.

“I’m seeing people taking to the streets,” he continued, adding that the authorities would attempt unsuccessfully to quash the protests with police.

“You can stop protests but you cannot stop revolution. When it becomes a revolution, everybody is ready to die, so you can’t stop it,” he stated.

“It might be stopped at the beginning. Eventually, it will become so big that it cannot be stopped. This I see happen. Nigeria, pray,” he stated in the clip.

The cleric, however, proffered a solution, calling on the Nigerian government to actively engage its young people, recognising they are the “leaders of tomorrow”.

“God has given us the way out. The way out – job creation for the youth and the creation of a new social value system,” he said.

“No matter the education the youth have, they feel they have no place in politics and there is no job to keep them busy,” he continued, calling for a “new orientation” especially in the political sphere.

“In politics, the youth should be considered for important positions such as assistants to elders. While the elders are ministers, the youth should be junior ministers,” he advised. “By doing this, we are training them to take over tomorrow.”

The prominent cleric further reiterated his ‘shocking’ vision. “Revolution is a weapon of change that is coming. This is the vision I saw – revolution is coming when people will take to the streets because life has no value anymore to the people,” he said, adding that the “coming ominous signs are disastrous”.

Joshua appealed to those in leadership to “carry your youth along” in “politics and administration, especially in ruling your country”, adding that Nigeria’s young people “want to see themselves represented in every area of life.”

“When we carry the youth along, whenever there is a revolt, they will be available to readily speak to their colleagues,” he also noted.

The cleric insisted the revelation was “the voice of God” and “none of this will go without being fulfilled”.

“As sure as God lives, I, TB Joshua, will tell you only what God says. If I am hated, persecuted or intimidated because of my accurate prophetic messages, blessed be to God who gives the prophecy. The day will declare who is in the right and who is in the wrong, says the Lord,” Joshua concluded.

Since the outbreak of #EndSARS protests, Joshua is yet to make a public comment and his official social media handles have not referenced the unrest.

The protests, which have drawn huge crowds throughout Nigeria’s major cities, have morphed from insistence on the abolition of the notorious SARS police unit to impassioned calls for good governance and accountability among Nigeria’s politicians.

LOOK FORWARD

In the midst of life’s uncertainties, we tend to look back to our family background, poor education and some other unfavourable circumstances around us. We are so busy with our past that we are unable to look at the other side and hear what God says in Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Upon all the promises of salvation she received, Lot’s wife looked back and behold, she became a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26). Answering the call of God, Peter walked on the water and yet the moment he looked back at his surroundings, Peter sank (Matthew 14:30).

Indeed, we cannot look at two different directions at the same time; broken focus is the real reason men fail. Brethren, Jesus calls you to look forward to Him so you can discover new strength, new courage. Discovery is for forward lookers – it is by looking forward that you discover new things, new horizons and new opportunities you would not have ordinarily dreamt of.

Today, look forward to Jesus and discover a new beginning, in Jesus’ name!

SOUTH SUDAN PRESIDENT SENDS OFFICIAL LETTER OF APPRECIATION TO PROPHET TB JOSHUA

President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan has written an official letter to Prophet TB Joshua, thanking him for the role he played in bringing peace to the nation and inviting him once again to South Sudan.

After receiving this letter, when asked by journalists why he was valued more abroad than in Nigeria, Prophet TB Joshua responded: “If I am appreciated in my country more, then I am not following the footsteps of my Master Jesus. He was despised by the same people He came to liberate. I am happy that I face the same persecution as Jesus.” The son of God.

Here is the contents of the letter:

Dear Man of God,

REF: Invitation Letter

With due respect and honour, I am privileged to write to your highly esteemed prophetic office in reference to the above-mentioned subject.

First, I would like thank you, humble servant of the Most High God, for the higher grace and anointing upon your life, and for your love and humility by coming on your prophetic and historic visit on 12th November 2019 when the nation was in a desperate situation after experiencing civil war violence for many years.

The world organisations tried to negotiate peace but where human wisdom failed, God has the final answer. Hallelujah!

You prophesied that it shall be a new beginning for the nation and we, the leaders, should overcome our divisions and differences to develop our youngest nation in the world

Hence, we the government and opposition have come together to implement the revitalised peace agreement and now the nation is at peace followed by the formation of the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU), which signifies a new beginning indeed!

“For I am the Lord, I speak and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will no more be postponed…” (Ezekiel 12:25)

Secondly, based on the above-mentioned reference, I want to take this opportunity to invite you again to the Republic of South Sudan to harvest what you planted. The whole nation of South Sudan is ready to receive you once again.

“Being confident of this proverb, He who began the good work will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)

Please accept, dear Man of God, the assurance of my best regards.

Salva Kiir Mayardit,

President of the Republic of South Sudan

God’s Power Is More Majestic In Distance

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!

Healed Physically, Spiritually or Emotionally

healing, TB Joshua

The single remedy that cures every case in this world emotionally, physically or spiritually, and which has never been known to fail, is the Lord Jesus Christ. Exodus 1:26 says, “I am the Lord that health thee”. Jesus continues to use His healing power as an effective entry point to helping us to understand His Good News Message of Salvation and freedom from sin power. Even whilst Jeremiah (22:18) was questioning his people saying, “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?” Jesus has always been the Balm in Gilead and the Healer. Before He ascended into heaven, He spoke to His followers that “they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:18). This anointing was so strong on the Apostles that “many signs and wonders were regularly done among the people by the hands of the apostles . . . believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them. The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed, (Acts 5:12-16). God’s will is for us to walk in divine healing and health, physically and spiritually. The Ministry of Prophet TB Joshua of the SCOAN Lagos Nigeria represents the Apostolic Ministry of our day, tapping into the promises of God. Jesus is making Healing a component of SCOAN’s teaching and activities across the globe.

Who are the people getting healing from Jesus in the Bible? One of them was a woman having an issue of blood for twelve years, (Luke 8:43-48). The woman had spent all her living upon physicians but couldn’t be healed of any of them. She came behind Jesus and touched the border of His garment. Immediately her issue of blood stanched. At that level, she obtained what we want to described loosely here as physical healing. But Jesus questioned, “Who touched me?” All denied and Jesus said, “Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me”. Eventually, she came trembling and falling before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for why she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. Jesus said unto her, “Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace”. She was brought to the full knowledge of Who Jesus is. Knowing Jesus is the spiritual aspect of healing. If Jesus had allowed her to go back to the crowd she might have run away with the impression that Jesus is also a super physician in town, whereas He is our Saviour, our Healer and by His stripes, we are healed. It is a complete package of emotional, physical and spiritual healing that we get from Jesus and which must be maintained by following Jesus.

Jesus also heals a Man Born Blind as another example of the people receiving this divine grace. “As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth”, (John 9). This healing was done so that the “works of God might be displayed in Him” (verse 4). Also to reveal the person of Jesus, “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world”, (verse 5). The blind man’s faith and obedience must be acknowledged. He had never known or heard of Jesus before, but somehow believed and obeyed Him. The Pharisees investigated the healing only to display their spiritual blindness.

Incidentally, many people coming to SCOAN for healing belong to one or other groups; such as, “I don’t go to church”, “This is my first time in SCOAN”, “I have been to all over the places for healing to no avail”, “My pastor discouraged my coming earlier”, “I have been watching Emmanuel.tv”, etc. The Lord Jesus and His followers ministered healing even to those with little or no understanding of the things of God. Hence healing and all other God’s divine interventions in our circumstances must be that “His mercy brings both miracles and salvation”. This mercy healing is available to everyone. On the other hand, religious leaders are confused thinking of getting to the Healing Ministry by some rigorous academic research, going to a College of Divinity for a PhD degree programme, etc.

We perceive that this generation, like every other before it, consists of different minds when it comes to Who Jesus is, His disciples and the teaching of healing. In particular, the contemporary society is filled at one end with men and women of simplistic minds thinking that all there is are the only things their eyes can see. On the other end are the spiritualists, the rituals, the demons, the cultists where many religious leaders probably belong. Our Lord Jesus Christ heals because He is full of compassion towards mankind and He knows that healing belongs to God’s children. Jesus heals us from all our infirmities to fulfil God’s promises and to glorify His heavenly Father. Furthermore, Jesus heals to confirm His Word, demonstrate the power in His blood and to expose the devil’s defeat and the devil’s failure. Peter explained to Cornelius that “Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil”, (Acts 10:37-38). Jesus knows all our needs even the number of hairs on our heads, (Matthew 10: 29-30), even our infirmities, and weaknesses.

We recall the parable of Lazarus and the unnamed Rich man told by Jesus in (Luke 16:19-31). Lazarus was described as a beggar with sores, looking for what to eat and dogs coming around him to lick his sores, whereas the Rich man was in luxury every day. The time came when Lazarus died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s bosom. The Rich man also died and was buried in Hades, where he was being tormented; he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side, (verse 24). Lazarus reclined at Abraham’s bosom, a position for the guest of honour at a banquet. We read in the gospels that John had that position next to Jesus, (John 13:23). Those who trusted in God’s Word were promised to be with Abraham in God’s kingdom. This is spiritual healing and our hope.

Hence as we continue to watch and pray with Emmanuel.tv, with Prophet TB Joshua and his SCOAN team, with other Christians, or individually, for healing, for blessing, for a breakthrough, the sole aim should be to encounter Jesus Christ and His awesome power. It is a big privilege and God’s divine mercy to be healed either through prayers, medication, diet or exercise. It becomes spiritual when it leads to the source and the Healer. In this generation, we have been blessed to have a Prophet like TB Joshua who is not just doing miracles but can live by the Word that leads to salvation. TB Joshua’s Ministry is “Healing the Christian World” today, turning it from serving the god of Marmon, the god of raising supermen who can build so many branches and raise so many funds but the people are not edified and made to encounter Jesus. TB Joshua often says that reward is not necessarily the result of faithful prayer. Lazarus must have prayed but his result came to him when least expected in the bosom of Abraham. What Prophet TB Joshua and his Ministry have contributed to how the public should see Christ is in the “Returning to the Apostolic Age” rather than the “Transaction Christianity Approach”. The Transaction Christianity Approach is to claim that because you sow an amount of seed you reap so much because you pay your tithes you are blessed more because you fasted for seven days you are blessed more than when you fasted only three days, you pay so much and you are prayed for that much. TB Joshua and SCOAN have left such schools through the power of Jesus, and now seeing Christ as He is. Of course, we need to pay our tithes and labour for Christ every moment. Nevertheless let us know that by grace we have been saved, through faith and this is not from ourselves. It is the gift of God and not by works so that no one can boast, (Ephesians 2:8-9). Hence be healed physically and spiritually in Jesus mighty name. Distance is not a barrier. Emmanuel!

LET YOUR WORDS BE FEW

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

“Do not be rash with your mouth,
And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God.
For God is in heaven, and you on earth;
Therefore let your words be few.”
(Ecclesiastes 5:2-3)

When you open your mouth to pray, do you ever stop to think about who you are praying to? The Creator of Heaven and earth. Sadly, today most of our words that we say in prayer only entertain men but do not reach God.

The greatest achievement on earth is to pray as God wants us to pray. But prayer is not saying words; the Spirit of God is the Word on our lips. When Jesus ascended to Heaven, He left us the Comforter, the Holy Spirit to help us to be faithful, obedient to Christ, to help us to pray because He is the Word on our lips. But have we received any comfort from Him?

If we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that much of our conversation, prayer, preaching and teaching is nothing more than empty talk because it is not affected by the Holy Spirit.

Let us ask God for the grace to shut our mouths and open our hearts to the Spirit of God so that when we come before Him in prayer, we will let our words be few.

Are You Looking For Jesus?

tb joshua, scoan,jesus

In Matthew 2:1-12 we read about the wise men that came from the east to Jerusalem saying, “Where is he that is born King of the Jews?” When they saw the young child Jesus with Mary His mother they fell on there kneels, and worshipped Him and presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. In Luke 2:43-50, Joseph and Mary the parents of Jesus had to turn back again to Jerusalem, seeking and looking for their son Jesus because they had disconnected from Him. Some people who love Jesus may have got disconnected. They ought to turn back to restore their relationship. You’d probably find Jesus in the temple, sitting amid the doctors, hearing them and asking them questions. But be very careful because in the temples today some are merchants, fame-seekers, religious leaders who wouldn’t enter into Jesus’ kingdom nor allow others. In Sunday school, we had been routinely taught to find Jesus through confessing our sins, repenting from them, praying and reading the Bible. Yes, we can also find Jesus in the scriptures, the Bible.

Nicodemus a Pharisees and a ruler of the Jews also came looking for Jesus by night. Nicodemus probably had watched Jesus, (as many have been watching Emmanuel.tv all over the places). He would have listened to His teaching and His power and came to the conclusion that “no man can do these miracles that thou does, except God be with him”. Jesus taught us many lessons from this night visit. Jesus said, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit”. We need a rebirth and that God loves the world and gives His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Jesus should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Zacchaeus a Chief Tax Collector also wanted to see who Jesus was. Zacchaeus being a short man in status could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus since He was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, He looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed Jesus gladly, (Luke 19:1-10). The religious leaders mocked at Jesus saying, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus stood up to the call for repentance and becoming a changed man.

Today many other individuals or groups of people are looking for Jesus, but each for very different reasons. Most of these are looking for Him for the very wrong reasons. Just like in Jesus’ day, the Jews were looking for Jesus so they could kill Him. Jesus spoke in very simple but authoritative language, He reached out to hurting people. He was also known to be a friend of sinners. Jesus’ basic message is “Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand”. We are supposed to, “Keep ourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life”, (Jude 1:21). Instead of that, the teachings of Jesus irritated the Jewish leaders and they regarded Him a threat and a Public Enemy Number One. They got Him arrested and nailed Him on a tree. Today, some people also hate Jesus Christ, and by extension true Apostolic prophets like Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN. The teaching coming from SCOAN is very simply, bringing people out for confession, deliverance and receiving a new life in Christ Jesus, almost always immediately. SCOAN’s altar call is unique, effective, excellent and real and not a ritual of it.

Another group of people was looking for Jesus because of the great signs He had performed. They sensed that something big was about to happen. But it was not what these people thought. They thought Jesus would free them from the tyranny of Rome. Whilst Jesus came to conquer sin and death this group thought Jesus had come to conquer Rome. He did not come to make war with Rome; instead, He came to make peace between God and man. These people misunderstood His mission. They were looking for Jesus, but they wanted Him on their terms. Many groups are in this class looking for Jesus they can use quickly as magic or charm, prosperity gospel teachers, measuring rewards as answers to prayer people. Yes Jesus is rich but He will tell us to “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”, (Matthew 6:33).

The Christmas Jesus seekers can also form another class of their own. At Christmas, many people will celebrate Jesus’ birth with decoration and funfair, but live the rest of the year as though He never came. They want God in their lives, but they want Him on their terms. They are looking for the plastic Jesus they can hang around as part of the furniture in the house. When they lose their Jesus the police can assist them to recover such property. Christmas also brings high sales to some people and the only reason to look forward to it.

Peradventure we are still undecided about who Jesus is and need to read more of Him in the scriptures. Jesus has many names and many titles, each for unique purposes and His roles. For example, in Revelation chapter 1 Jesus is Christ, the Faithful Witness, the First Begotten of the dead, and the Prince of the kings of the earth. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty, the First and the Last, etc. He is also called The Word of God, the KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS,(Revelation 19:13, 16). That Jesus “being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself. . . God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”, (Philippians 2:6-13).

Hence, beloved, you need to work out your salvation with fear and trembling by looking for Jesus to follow Him. God shall work in you both to will and do of His good pleasure. In John Chapter 6 a great multitude followed Jesus because they saw His miracles which He did on them that were diseased. Jesus also fed them. Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, “This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world”. Jesus perceived that they would come and take Him by force, to make Him a king. Hence He departed into a mountain Himself alone. The people of this world are looking for a champion, a leader, a celebrity, a worldly figurehead to build another city, to fight their wars, to rescue them from the consequences of their own mistakes, etc. Some others asked Jesus, “What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said unto them, “This is the work of God that ye believe on Him Whom He hath sent”. Jesus is the one looking for us. He told Apostle John, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me”, (Revelation 3:20).

HIS COVENANT

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN Emmanuel TV

“He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.
Remember His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations…” 1 Chronicles 16:14-15

If God has not promised anything, how do we know that He is faithful? From age to age, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has shown Himself as a God who keeps His promises. You cannot separate God from His will, promises and time. Without God’s promises, your faith is not real faith.

Yet you seem to forget when you are facing a challenge that you are what God says you are. You seem to forget that you have what God says you have. You seem to forget that you and God together can move mountains.

No matter what you think, feel or do, what matters is what God has said. There is nothing more ridiculous than to allow your present situation to cause you to doubt the fulfilment of God’s promises for your life.

How do you know that promise? We know God by the Word He speaks and the Word He speaks represents His heart’s desire. His Word is filled with promises for every matter; insert your name where the message is personal and by faith, believe, receive and confess His promises daily.

Let God’s Word continue to run in your heart. Let His Word continue to run in your spirit.

No matter what happens, no matter what comes, let nothing take you from His covenant. Again i said, let nothing take you from His covenant.

God Shall Provide Rest for His Followers

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.

This is why SCOAN, led by its Bishop, Prophet TB Joshua, keep on praying for you, asking God to enable you to live a life worthy of Jesus’ calling. May He give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honoured because of the way you live, and you will be honoured along with Him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ, (1 Thessalonians 1:7-12).

Specifically, our love and prayers continually go to those who unfortunately lost their lives on September 14, 2014, within SCOAN guest house premises. The Almighty and all-knowing Sovereign God, from whom nothing is hidden, shall reveal the truth at His time. Meanwhile, we warn every Christian to expect some persecution, especially these perilous times. Such persecution may take different forms such as discrimination, religious bias, killing, and every other systematic mistreatment either on basis of an individual or a group of individuals, because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

Every follower of Jesus ought to remain focused on our ordination and calling that we should go and bring forth fruit and that our fruit should remain. In accomplishing this glorious commission Jesus commands that we should also love one another, working for Him in one accord. Peradventure the world hates us in the process that we need to remember that it hated Jesus also and nailed Him on the cross. Secondly, if we were of the world, the world would love his own. Since we are not of the world, but followers of Jesus, therefore the world hates every true Christian. Jesus said, “The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also”, (John 15:16-20).

Therefore as we continue to pay tribute to those who lost their lives on that fateful day, Christians who had clung to their faith to their deaths. Our condolences go to their families, their loved ones, SCOAN families, Emmanuel partners and Prophet TB Joshua. Unfortunately, there is a growing Christian martyr now. Stephen was the first Christian martyr in the New Testament. The blood of these martyrs, (witnesses for Jesus), and all those who continue to give their lives for Christ, represent a powerful and attractive witness for Christianity and a curse for the adversary Satan. We pray that their souls rest in perfect peace. Finally, brethren, we should always remember the word of Jesus to His disciples when He said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God and believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am”, (John 1:1-3). Emmanuel!

WHO IS SAILING YOUR BOAT?

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

“I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth… he lives with you and will be in you” (John 14:16).

Many of us still want to be in charge of our own lives. We already know what we want to wear tomorrow, we plan our timetable and iron our clothes for the week but how do we know we will be here tomorrow? We own today but God owns tomorrow. Many believe we can do it all alone without any reference to God but we are His greatest product, created to be under His influence.

The Holy Spirit wants to be Lord of your life and He wants to possess you so that you will no longer be in command of the little vessel in which you sail. On this great voyage of life, you are to be a passenger on the boat or one of the crew but definitely not in charge.

Decide today to give up the command of your vessel. Ask God’s Spirit to take up residence in your heart. When the Holy Spirit is residing in us, we have His kind of freedom (Romans 8:10).

Oh Holy Spirit make a way
Make my heart a place for You to dwell

TRUTH WILL GET THE RACE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

Jesus was not the kind of person to be led by others. He did not labour to appear truthful; He simply was a man of truth. He said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). And it is the truth of His life and message that has saved us today.

We are living in a world surrounded by lies. No one has to teach us to lie because by nature, man is rebellious. If you tell lies, you are speaking your father’s language for satan is the author of lies (John 8:44).

Truth becomes our protection against the lies of the adversary. But if you do not take time to find out the truth, you shall never come to the knowledge of the truth. The Holy Spirit is true for He is the Spirit of truth. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart to see yourself in the truth of God’s Word. “The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever” (Psalm 119:160).

If you are pretending today, you cannot pretend forever; if you are lying today, you cannot lie forever. The only thing that will last forever is the truth of God’s Word.

If lying goes on for 100 years, truth one day will reach it (Psalm 94:15). So decide today to say no to lies and be on the winning side. As truth was older than terror, so it will survive it. It got the start and it will get the race.

Did TB Joshua Predict Prince Harry’s ‘RESIGNATION’ From UK Royal Family?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Announce Shocking Move to ‘Step Back as Senior Members of Royal Family’

On Wednesday 8th January 2019, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle made a shocking announcement, effectively ‘resigning’ from their duties within the British Royal Family.

However, merely days earlier, Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) had warned of impending separation within the Royal Family in his much-publicized prophecy for 2020.

Prophet TB Joshua Praying at Mountain Top

“Pray for unity and understanding among the Royal Family – because of what I am seeing,” the cleric stated in the word of prophecy written on December 28th, 2019 which he said he ‘received’ after time in a ‘prayer mountain’.

“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote on their official Instagram account, adding the decision came “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”.

The announcement from the famous duo exposed the widening rifts within the British monarchy, already exacerbated by the fallout over Prince Andrew’s alliance with the late convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America,” the statement continued, stating this would provide them “with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

Whilst releasing the prophecy publicly on Sunday 5th January 2019, Joshua explained that many of the events he had foreseen had begun to take place or would happen imminently.

In the same prophecy, TB Joshua warned of “an incident” in the nation of Iran “that will cause panic throughout the world”, confirmed days later when a US drone strike killed prominent Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

The message regarding Iran followed a prophecy Joshua gave a decade earlier in which he warned of the repercussions of an “attack on Iran” by “super-powers”, going on his knees to pray for peace in the volatile region.

Concerning the United Kingdom, Joshua additionally warned in his 2020 prophecy of “agitation from a section that wants to leave” and also called for prayers “for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh” regarding ill-health.

He equally cautioned about the “economic repercussions” stemming from Brexit, insisting it “needs more time to stand on its feet” with the co-operation of the European Union leadership.

Since its release, the video of the prophecy published on Emmanuel TV’s popular YouTube Channel – which included messages for Nigeria, Russia and USA – has racked up over 250,000 views.

Prophet TB Joshua Releases 2020 Prophecy

tb joshua 2020

Prophet TB Joshua

During his church service at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 5th January 2020, Prophet TB Joshua released his much-anticipated prophetic message for the year 2020.

The eleven words of prophecy touched on a wide range of topics, including messages for Nigeria, Iran, America, Russia and the United Kingdom.

The cleric, who was absent during last week’s service at an undisclosed ‘prayer mountain’ where he was ‘seeking the face of God’, explained the revelations came to him on December 28th 2019.

tb joshua, mountian, 2020 prayer

Prophet TB Joshua

“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,” Joshua stated in a parabolic message to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, calling on people to join him in prayer for Nigeria.

He additionally addressed Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. “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.”

The cleric revealed he had foreseen the US attack which led to the death of Iranian military Commander Qassem Soleimani, sparking a dramatic escalation in tensions between the two nations.

“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,” he wrote in the prophetic message on December 28th, just days before the deadly drone strike in Baghdad, Iraq.

Joshua called on America to “invest more in agriculture”and “encourage their farmers” due to impending economic challenges in the nation.

This mirrored his message for the world concerning the economic situation. “Agriculture will help the economy because the economy will have a backlash. Let us farm to help the economy.”

He equally spoke of the upcoming Presidential elections in USA scheduled for November 2020. “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.”

Joshua then addressed Russia, calling on the nation to“pray for their leader to avert his being on the sickbed. There is a ladder to go up – if this is averted,” he added.

Speaking in more general terms to leaders worldwide, he added: “Many sicknesses and diseases that leaders have been treating privately will surface this year. They will become bedridden and many will not make it.”

Regarding the United Kingdom, Joshua spoke of “agitation from a section that wants to leave”, additionally calling for prayers for the Royal Family.

“Brexit needs more time to stand on its feet – with more co-operation of the EU leaders,” he added. “If not, there will be economic repercussions and the cost of things will become unbearable. With time and preparation, all will be well.”

In a message affecting the general populace, Joshua warned of a ‘common medicine’ that will “cause people to be ‘high’ to die, to commit suicide”. “The governments of each nation should watch out and put a check on pharmaceutical drugs that come to their country,” he cautioned.

“This year will be a year of humility,” he continued, stressing that “this year, the Lord will humble us with our challenges.”

Joshua revealed the only remedy was to “move closer to God”, explaining that weaknesses and bad habits would “destroy us or exposes us” as a means of bringing humility.

Finally, the cleric spoke of those involved in the work of God. “People will be getting tired this year because the work of God is not by power and might,” he revealed, warning of “so many challenges, tribulations and burdens they will not be able to bear”.

“Our prayer warriors are on their knees praying to make sure the changeable ones are changed,” the cleric stressed, adding that two additional parts of the prophecy would be revealed in due course. “Prophecy is a guide to life.”

The service was broadcast live on Emmanuel TV, which just became the world’s first Christian ministry YouTube channel to break the milestone of obtaining 1,500,000 subscribers.

Prophet TB Joshua Relocate to the mountain to seek God’s face ahead of 2020

tb joshua, mountian, 2020 prayer

Prophet TB Joshua

Foremost and internationally recognized Man of God, Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of Synagogue Church of all nations(SCOAN) has relocated to the mountain in order to seek God’s face and direction for 2020.

This was announced during a live service at his church in Lagos by one of his ministers , Prophet Racine, who read a letter to the congregation that cut across all nations and explaining why TB Joshua was not in service .

The minister who was with Prophet TB Joshua earlier at the mountain stated that he and some other ministers had to return from the mountain for the church service but the man of God had to stay back because God has not released him and also because of the things he saw ahead of 2020.

He said even though he isn’t in their midst physically, he was there spiritually because there is need for him to seek God’s face towards the coming year.

“The man of God Prophet TB Joshua will not be in our midst physically because he is at the prayer mountain. Take note of the word ‘physically’ – in body he will not be here but he is with us in spirit.

We too were at the mountain. We only returned for the service – but he remained behind. He is concerned about all that is about to happen in the New Year ahead around the world’’

He did a flashback to January 2019 when the Man Of God went to the mountain to pray and seek God’s sake for the year, making it known that all what God showed him came to pass.

“Remember what God showed him in the same mountain at the beginning of this year – what would happen. Now he is back there to know what will happen next year. Let us listen to what God showed him.

“This has been played thousands of times on Emmanuel TV. When it was playing at the beginning from January 4th, you were not taking it seriously. Today, you and I will agree that this year is so fearful’’

Afterwards, a video of Prophet TB Joshua on the mountain was played. It was reinstated that the man of God has the whole world in mind and it was due to this reason that he was absent from the church service

MEASURE YOUR LIFE BY YOUR LOVE FOR GOD

It was only three days before Christmas and expectedly, the ambience in ‘The Arena of Liberty’ reflected the colours of the season. From their stand, The SCOAN Choir dished out songs of praise and worship that echoed around the world. “Holy Spirit breathe in me,” they began. Thereafter, they asked the Holy Spirit to take more of the people and give them more of Himself. “Abba Father!” they also sang in praise, preparing the hearts of the people for a life changing encounter with Jesus..

The sermon, titled ‘Measure Your Life By Your Love For God’ began with the Bible’s assertion that only the virtue of love can set faith to work, thereby pleasing God. Prophet T.B. Joshua read from Corinthians 13:13 (NIV): “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” He said that love conquers evil and that Christians should depend on the Holy Spirit to lead them on whom to show love. “Love looks around to see who is in need, who is sick, who is unsaved, who is depressed, who is worried,” the man of God said. As such, he advised Christians to measure their lives by their love for God via unconditional display of concern for the welfare of those around them, who are the very image of God. However, he cautioned, Christians should not be discouraged by those who fail to appreciate their acts of sacrificial charity. In his words, “God says that we should give, so give. He wants to see your genuine willingness. By the time you get to a certain point Jesus will now help you to give to the right people.” He concluded with the need to maintain a relationship with God.

Similarly, Prophetess Yinka gave a message titled “AT CHRISTMAS, LET YOUR SEED MOVE GOD.” She started by noting God’s unconditional offering of His Best Seed, Jesus Christ, for the salvation of humankind. She described Christmas as a time to plant seeds of love in a way that will move God and help to reshape our destiny. Prophetess Yinka questioned why people are able to give up their worldly possessions but tend to be unwilling to give up sin, noting that it is important to be reconciled with God. Starting with Isaiah 9:6, she explained that Christmas is significant as “the basis of our eternal hope,” representing “a glorious light that will dispel every shade of darkness in our lives, a glorious increase and complete joy arising from His birth and a glorious liberty and enlargement with good reason.” Failing to walk in love, Prophetess Yinka said, will lead to suppressing God’s promises in our lives. Seeking to prick congregants’ consciences, she noted, “Perhaps that seed of love, that seed of forgiveness, the seed of patience, humility, may be what God will use to reshape your destiny, even the destiny of your children.” She therefore urged people to plant seeds with genuineness, simplicity of heart and humility.

After the sermon, congregants saw evidence of God’s awesome power as stubborn contrary spirits got booted out of people’s lives by the authority in the name of Jesus Christ.

TB Joshua’s Emmanuel TV Celebrates Christmas in Bethlehem!

tb joshua, scoan, bethlehem

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 WAY WE FORGIVE OTHERS

It was a clear sign of the amazing signs that were to follow as The SCOAN Choir’s praise and worship caused an outpouring of God’s Spirit upon congregants, who let go of their inhibitions as they danced in holy excitement, grateful to be seeing the end of year under God’s guidance.

In a message for the season and for all time, Prophet TB Joshua exhorted congregants on the virtue of doing unto others as they would want God to do for them. He read from Luke 11:4 and Matthew 25:45. While the first passage talks about asking for God’s forgiveness after forgiving others, the second one urges Christians to try and meet their neighbours’ needs in the assurance that they are doing so for God. As such, he urged congregants to adopt unconditional love as a way of life: “The way I love you is the same way I will be loved. The way I help you is the same way I will be helped. The way I release you is the same way I will be released. The way I restore you is the same way I will be restored. The way I care for you is the same way I will be cared for.”

In another practical message, Prophet Chris taught the church: “LET YOUR CONSCIENCE BE YOUR GUIDE.” The message dwelt on the need for Christians to realise that no one is perfect, as all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. Taking his proof text from Proverbs 28:13 – Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy”– Prophet Chris showed that trying to cover up a sin or imperfection will only lead to more sin and imperfection, as was the case with David in 2 Samuel 11. In the words of prophet Chris, “It is not that children of God do not make mistakes or do the wrong thing but when they do their heart is troubled because it is not their will to commit sin.” He therefore advised congregants not to ignore their conscience.

Indeed, the Lord moved mightily on the day as many received healing, deliverance and salvation as God’s servants prayed with the people in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

ACCEPT YOUR MIRACLE BY FAITH

Tb Joshua ministry, scoan

Faith in Jesus Christ is a necessary condition for true spiritual healing, blessing and salvation. When the man of God says, “You are healed”, you are healed indeed – but you have a role to play. Remember, when Jesus met the man He healed at the pool of Bethesda, He said to him, ‘Look, you are healed now but you have a role to play or else you will not only lose this miracle; worse things will happen to you’ (John 5:14). What is this role Jesus is talking about? Jesus was telling him to accept the miracle by faith.

How do you accept a miracle by faith? We accept miracles by faith when we recognise the reason for the miracle. The Bible says the only genuine reason for receiving is salvation. When you receive for the sake of salvation, whatever you receive would stand the test of time because then you would worship the Giver rather than the thing you are given; you would worship the Creator rather than the created. Whatever we receive would come with the peace of God that would give us fulfilment in Christ and when you are fulfilled in Christ, you lack nothing and want nothing; you are content. When you are content, whatever anybody achieves out there does not matter to you. You would believe you are what God says you are. This is what I mean by seeking for salvation.

A PROPHETIC END TO BLEEDING AFTER SURGERY

“There is a woman there – you put on underwear but at the same there are a lot of things you put under you to cover up because you are always seeing yourself – I will not call it bleeding because it is not blood alone; fluid and everything just come out of your body after an operation you did. So, please come out; God loves you.” Those were the words of prophecy that located Ms Elyse Kangela, who had come all the way from DR Congo to seek God’s touch at The SCOAN a fortnight ago. Somewhat timidly, Elyse had stepped out to identify herself as the recipient of the prophecy. Last Sunday, she returned to church to testify about what had happened since then. “In 2017,” she began, “I had an operation for multiple fibroids.” She said after returning home, she had kept bleeding and had gone back to the doctors. They told her they found no fibroids but saw signs of endometriosis. They suggested removing her womb but she objected. Consequently, she had to start wearing baby napkins, sometimes changing them up to three times a day. “It was so embarrassing for me,” she said. “Immediately after the prophecy,” Elyse added, “I went to check myself and couldn’t believe it was all over. I was so happy and excited.” She advised people to trust in God and believe in the name of Jesus Christ.

MAINTAIN YOUR BLESSING

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…

TRUE FRIENDSHIP

Tb Joshua ministry, SCOAN

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.

LEAVE THE ISSUE WITH GOD

Tb Joshua, SCOAN

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.

Reinhard Bonnke, TB Joshua and Overcoming Division in The Body of Christ

bonnke, tb joshua

“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.”

It was with these heartfelt words that Pastor T.B. Joshua began his sermon at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday December 8th 2019. Hours earlier, his social media platforms – followed by millions – had published a touching tribute to Evangelist Bonnke, describing him as a “missionary with a burning passion for the Gospel.” Celebrating his ‘life and legacy of harvest’, Emmanuel TV declared, “The character of a true believer is that he finds refuge in the secret place of the Most High God. Heaven is our resting place, our dwelling place. Here Reinhard Bonnke rests – in the precious arms of Jesus Christ.”

I’m sure churches around the African continent and indeed the world offered similar sentiments and shared similar tributes. Reinhard Bonnke was, after all, a colossus in the evangelical world whose mammoth crusades led untold millions to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. However, the significance of Joshua’s poignant tribute lies in the divisive events preceding it, much of which remains shrouded in mystery by the ‘dirty politics’ that unfortunately infiltrated Nigerian Christianity. Indeed, many don’t know that Reinhard Bonnke publicly renounced any ties with TB Joshua – at the specific, urgent insistence of then Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) President Ayo Oritsejafor.

In 2007, Bonnke had been interviewed by Emmanuel TV in one of his public meetings, immediately irking Nigeria’s Pentecostal fold who had denounced Joshua as an impostor who used diabolical powers. Bonnke spoke several weeks later on ABN (African Broadcasting Network) – the channel owned and operated by Oritsejafor – stating he was unaware of Emmanuel TV’s correlation with TB Joshua and renouncing any ‘endorsement of TB Joshua’ suggested by his initial interview. At the period when ‘persecution’ against TB Joshua from Nigerian Pastors was at its fiercest, Oritsejafor was undoubtedly among his chief critics, stating categorically in an interview with the Vanguard in 2009 that he did not consider Joshua to even be a Christian and threatening to ‘expel’ any member of PFN who was caught ‘fraternising’ with him. Oritsejafor’s spiritual father – the late Benson Idahosa – once famously said TB Joshua was ‘below his cleaner’ and defiantly declared he would shortly die. Without jumping to any conclusions, it’s pertinent to note his own passing followed soon after.

In an article from US-based Charisma Magazine in 2002 about the controversies surrounding Joshua’s ministry, Peter Vandenberg, then executive vice president of Christ for All Nations (CFAN), explained Bonnke’s rationale for ‘keeping a distance’ from the Nigerian cleric. “We held a meeting organised by 2000 local pastors and every one of them said that Joshua does things that are occultic and that what he is doing is not doctrinally correct… We stand with the majority of Christians there who have denounced him. Our brothers in Nigeria are on the ground there, and they know best.”

It’s intriguing to note the ministry quoted ‘the majority’ as opposed to ‘seeking God’ for insight. However, years have passed since these controversies raged and time has unequivocally spoken a rather different picture than the ‘majority’ quoted above. Rather than receding away from prominence, TB Joshua has grown leaps and bounds, emerging as Nigeria’s most well-known televangelist with an increasingly large international following. Whilst Oritsejafor has faded into virtual anonymity, Joshua’s ministry has seen exponential, sustained growth (ABN has 1,500 YouTube subscribers and Emmanuel TV has 1,500,000). Prominent figures in Nigerian Christendom who vociferously condemned him such as Mike Okonkwo, Chris Okotie and Matthew Ashimolowo have dipped into ‘relative obscurity’ compared to Joshua’s meotoric rise in influence and acclaim.

Amidst such criticism, Joshua remained silent – letting actions speak louder than words. His sermons are centred on the simple truths of God’s Word, he engages in huge humanitarian projects both locally and internationally and the countless testimonies emerging from his ministry unequivocally give glory to Jesus Christ. Whilst Oritsejafor has been embroiled in the controversy of the Prosperity Gospel – recently caught on camera ‘commanding’ Americans to pay $5,000 each for an ‘anointed mantle’ at Morris Cerullo’s church – TB Joshua has painstakingly made it clear miracles cannot be exchanged with money and openly distanced himself from the excessive greed associated with the ‘Prosperity Gospel’. To surmise the scenario, the advice of Gameliel in Acts 5:38-39 springs readily to mind: “Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

I expect Bonnke just listened to what the ‘majority’ said without taking time to personally observe TB Joshua or seek the face of God concerning his anointed ministry. I am sure he – like many others in the Pentecostal fold – realised the truth about Joshua’s genuineness and unique spiritual calling but found it difficult to publicly acknowledge given his past comments. Regardless, this tribute by TB Joshua provides a powerful lesson, especially poignant for those in the vineyard of Christ. Let us forget pain of the past, put aside our differences in the body of Christ and ensure we stand for unity – with Jesus Christ at the forefront of all our actions and attitudes. After all, it’s not about Reinhard Bonnke, TB Joshua, Enoch Adeboye, David Oyedepo, Chris Oyakhilome or any other minister of God – it is all about Jesus!
