TB JOSHUA TAUGHT US TO TAKE THE BOLD STEP FOR JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV, Prayer mountain

After the Pentecost Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer. There at the gate of the temple they came across a certain man lame from his mother’s womb begging alms. Peter and John were also candidates the lame asked an alms. But Peter fastened his eyes on the lame man and said, “Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have to give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk”. Peter took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. In this wise Peter and John took a bold step for Jesus Christ. Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, always used every opportunity to take a bold step for Jesus. He made healing, giving, prophesying, teaching, etc, looked so easy. He also confronted multiple adversaries from the kingdom of darkness with simplicity and courage. Critics even thought that TB Joshua was not praying over the cases, or simply dramatizing them. There was no spirit of fear or spirit of timidity in TB Joshua for God has not given us the spirit of fear but of a sound mind.

In the daily warfare for the kingdom of God, the Christian meets with seemingly numerous difficulties. It is an essential reminder to Christians of any generation and degree that all cowardice, all dread of danger, all shrinking from doing one’s duty for fear of man’s displeasure, proceeds not from the Spirit of God. From the Spirit of God proceeds the spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind.

Part of the legacy of TB Joshua is the understanding that through the grace of God, it is expected that each one he has impacted, will daily take a bold step for Jesus Christ. Our business will henceforth be going out to do exploits for God (Daniel 11:32); because we know God, we are made strong in God and we can do the exploits through the spirit of God. Already we have seen the signs that though we may not see TB Joshua physically with us but God remains our present help forever. God is our God forever and ever and He will be our guide even unto death. Ephesians (4:11-12) states that God gives to the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ”. The holy spirit will equip everyone to do the work of the ministry. Every Christian should see their main business as serving God and therefore taking a bold step for Jesus Christ Daily.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT : SUCCESSION BATTLE IN THE TB JOSHUA MINISTRIES


Prophet TB Joshua Legacy Lives On

Following the fake news that is being circulated on Social Media about an alleged succession battle over who will be the next General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) since the passing on to glory of Prophet TB Joshua. We (SCOAN) have now officially released a statement from our official Social Media pages to debunk the rumour to be completely false and should therefore be disregarded. The statements make it clear that there was an instruction by the Prophet before his death and that is what we will follow concerning how the SCOAN will be run. This is, however, not the first time there has been circulation of fake news since the demise of Prophet T.B. Joshua about who will take over from him. There was the news that some imaginary elders and a group of family members come together to agree to appoint the Prophet wife, Evelyn Joshua to take over as the new General overseer of The SCOAN. This was around when the wife of the Prophet and the entire SCOAN family were still mourning and preparing for the funeral celebration of the Prophet. It is important the Public know that SCOAN is an Apostolic Ministry that is led by the holy Spirit of God. The SCOAN doesn’t operate by man conventions and theory. Every action in the SCOAN is subject to the directive of the Holy Ghost. So also is concerning the new leadership of the SCOAN, it will not be based on public opinion, men’s emotions, convention and perceptions, it will be based on the directive of the holy spirit of God. We understand these are very important moments for the ministry of SCOAN. We pray for God to grant those of us at the SCOAN Headquarter the grace to continue to be submissive to His perfect Will in Jesus’ Name! Amen! Below is the SCOAN official statement:


OFFICIAL STATEMENT

“Our attention has been drawn to an article published in This Day Newspaper on Wednesday July 14th 2021 titled: ‘Synagogue: Succession Battle Begins as THISDAY Interview is Cited as Evidence.’ The contents of the article regarding an alleged ‘succession battle’ are completely false and should therefore be disregarded. We want to inform the general public that there is no succession battle at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN). We are sons and daughters of love and shall continue to let love lead as we follow the instructions laid down by Prophet TB Joshua. Thank you for your prayers and support as we continue to honour the life and legacy of Prophet TB Joshua.”

TRIBUTE TO PROPHET TB JOSHUA FROM THE WHITE HOUSE


“Prophet TB Joshua was a special gift from God to humanity. He was a herald of the Gospel and agent of transformation, economic empowerment and spiritual liberation. He is known by the Christian community here in the United States and around the globe as a man of prayer, prophetic insight, a dynamic teacher, philanthropist and humanitarian.

For over 25 years, he has been a great source of inspiration through televangelism which has broadly impacted the religious heritage of many nations. His life reflects the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 1:21-23 – “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far.”

He was indeed a 21st century prophet who has completed his assignment and has made his transition to join our great prophetic ancestors including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, John the Baptist and Zechariah. Several scholars have listed him among the world’s most famous prophets.

It was always our desire to have Prophet T.B. Joshua to minister at our gathering here in Washington DC but God had other plans for him in this time and season. We thank God for the thousands of lives that were delivered from spiritual, social and economic bondage through his ministry. He has fought a good fight; he has finished his course and he has kept the faith. May his soul rest in peace and light perpetual shine on him.”

How are the mighty fallen and the weapons of war perished!”- 2 Samuel 1: 20, 25-27.

I weep at your passing my brother TB.
Adieu and shalom great Prophet of the Living God and great son of Nigeria.

TB Joshua the Herald of the Possibilities We Enjoy in Christ

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV, Prayer mountain

It is still very difficult for many of us to accept that we may not see Prophet TB Joshua imparting his “God sent” hands-on us physically again. He was the focal point. For example, in February 2020, just before the covid-19 global epidemic, a visitor from Tanzania confided in me, when we were on the prayer ground, that Prophet TB Joshua was the main reason that brought them to Nigeria. Hence it is envisaged that the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, may be different without its Founder. Nevertheless, the legacies he left behind are strong enough for continuity. The type of gates Prophet TB Joshua built around SCOAN, is a “Dynamic-Absolute-Faith in Jesus Christ”. Normally the protection of a city would depend on the strength or power of its gates, during times of adversities like this, the gates of that city would usually be the first place of assault.

The acronym SCOAN does not refer to a building or an organization, but to people across the globe who have been taught to understand their identity in Jesus Christ, His completeness and sufficiency. In (Matthew 16:18), Jesus said that “…you are Peter (TB Joshua, SCOAN, you may insert your name if you know Jesus) and upon this Rock, (upon this revelation of My true identity), I will build My CHURCH, (SCOAN). Every Christian Ministry should learn lessons from TB Joshua and from SCOAN instead of just carelessly passing judgment, criticism, abuses on things they have the least information.

Many lessons can be learned by observing the life of another, in particular between TB Joshua and those under him. We can learn from their habits and disciplines, how they relate to others, and even from their faults, beyond news media speculations and gossips that depart from the truth. The relationship between Elisha and Elijah the master provides an excellent example. Elisha was destined for a double portion, but if he had never first offered himself as a servant to Elijah, he would have remained a farmer, never be known and never performed the amazing miracles that blessed the lives of so many others. The final time Elisha spent with his master indicates his total loyalty to his call. In (2 Kings 2:6-7) we read that, “Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Stay here, for the LORD has told me to go to the Jordan River.’ But again Elisha replied, ‘As surely as the LORD lives and you live, I will never leave you.’ So they went on together. Fifty men from the group of prophets also went and watched from a distance as Elijah and Elisha stopped beside the Jordan River.” (2 Kings 2:6-7 NLT).

One lesson all prophets have to learn from Elijah is the test he set for Elisha the then-upcoming young prophet. Three times Elijah told Elisha to stay behind, but each time Elisha the student refused to leave his master’s side. Others were watching from a distance, but Elisha wanted a close-up and personal view of what God was about to do in Elijah’s life. The fifty others watching from a distance were not left with the double portion, only Elisha the one who had persevered. Today many so-called prophets are not just watching from the distance but they constitute themselves to police of the social media and judges of the open social court. In (Matthew 12:27,36-37 KJV) we also read, “If I (Jesus) by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned.”

Therefore let us all take to heart as Prophet TB Joshua remains are laid within the SCOAN premises. The Saki of Arigidi and his entire Arigidi’s Elder Forum and Council of Chiefs’ efforts to bring the body of one of their illustrious sons to be buried in Arigidi are highly appreciated. The world has come to know TB Joshua not because he came from Arigidi in Nigeria but because of his works. His works are what all of us must support to continue so that he, Prophet TB Joshua, can continue to live on in all hearts. We are praying hard for the continuity of all TB Joshua’s Ministries. Even as he used to say that. “Better is not good enough, the Best is yet to come”, so it shall be. Prophet TB Joshua’s life is therefore the herald of the possibilities we have in Jesus Christ if only we can truly accept and believe.

PROPHET TB JOSHUA LIVES ON!!

PROPHET TB JOSHUA LAST INTERVIEW BEFORE HIS DEATH

TB Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV
Prophet TB Joshua

Few days before the passing on to glory , four select journalists spoke to Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, in what appeared to be his last interview, on sundry issues. He particularly spoke about his calling, which he said could not be extended to his wife, Evelyn, except it pleases God hence she has remained in the background in the ministry. Segun James presents the excerpts:

How did you get the vision to lead a church?

I was called right here many years ago. Just a few meters away was the hut where I was staying as the other one is the hut where I pray and meditate and also read in absolute serenity. Vision comes from God through meditation amidst nature. Surrounded by nature you can concentrate. It is like you are talking of good lawyers, every profession must have a library, where you can sit down and do some studying. Without this place, I will not be able to concentrate and speak with the Almighty. So this is where I started and I must have a library and a place where I can enjoy nature, not the air condition or fan. So having nature around you is very good. God is nature 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.

What is your dream for the future of the church?

We intend to build a university of science, which will incorporate our job here. When you talk of science, theology, medicine, these are the areas we will concentrate upon. When you have a student, this is where they should come and review whatever they are taught. You need some place like this, where you leave everything outside and come and hear the cocks’ crow. But outside here, when they are doing that, you can’t hear them because of noise.

So this place is very important to me. This is where I live, sleep and everything I do. If I want to see people outside here, I go outside, there is time for that, because the bible says that there is time to rest, 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. And 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.

You said it all started here, how did it start given that this place was a swamp?

This swamp is the rejected stone. God spoke to me and brought me here, I have been following God’s vision and mission. When I am out of God’s mission I am finished. That is why you cannot see me outside here, you cannot hear me speak outside of here. What I want to show you now will leave you shocked. My brother saw it three days ago and was surprised. God’s time is the best and I always follow God’s time. So that is why I only called key people to show them this. 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.

So this is why you are not seeing me out there – at weddings, naming ceremonies and coming to your office to grant and interview, this is the only church – the synagogue here in Ikotun and there is no other branch all over the world but it touches everywhere in the world. So, 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.

Given what is here, not much is reported, why?

They will soon get to know, we are just waiting for God’s time. There are many things to be done in this place. So things are at about 80% completion. If people should know about this place now, we will not be able to complete this job because it will cause distraction. So, it remains a bit for us to get to 95%, when we are at 95% 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. After you leave here, I will like you to keep that information to yourself.

Why is it that you don’t want to talk about money?

Not that I don’t want to talk about money, because there are so many poor people around, if I begin to display what I have, can you imagine how much I will hurt those who are here? But whatever I can do to let them know that I understand what they are going through, I will do it. To give them money, to help them, supporting them, not to display what God has given me but to give them the support that they need.

You are always simply dressed, why?

If I have time to dress well I will do that.

Not much is known about your wife and family?

I am very happy about this question. I have a wife and I have children, and even my first daughter is doing her Phd and the second daughter is doing her master’s degree in Oxford. 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. It is not possible for me to anoint her, God is the one that anoints people. So, it is not possible for her to sit here at the same time, this is not biological issue; it is inheritance from the saints, it is a partaker from the saints. Therefore, I should not use anything in my biological life to stop my spiritual life.

I am a native of Arigidi Akoko but as for my divine nature I am a partaker of the inheritance of the saints, therefore, it is so difficult for me. This is an apostolic ministry. It is not a ministry you read bible, go to theology school, you get it 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 her.

Two things that are striking about you. One, you love gigantic projects, and two, you are heavily criticised by many people. How do you take them when you see them say uncomplimentary things about you?

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, at the end. So, if they praise you from the beginning it is not encouraging. If Nigeria has been accepting me right from the beginning of my mission, I think that will affect my mission to the world. I have gone all over the world, I am the only minister of God that organised a crusade in Israel. I have the certificate which was given to me in Israel. And I also went to Nazareth, where Jesus was born and organised a revival there. I am the first man of God to do that and it was carried in newspapers all over the world, Tell Magazine and the rest. An international cable news network carried it live when I was doing the crusade and a certificate was given to me. That is the greatest joy for any minister of God.

Why was there so much controversy about the crusade?

…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 the tenant? That is exactly what happened to Jesus. They said no, the Muslims were on the streets protesting, the Christian, Catholics and all. But I let them know that God sent me to do the revival in Israel. And top government functionaries, including Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu also sent his representative. So, on the second day I finished the revival, it was God that took me out of the place and millions of people attended. So, you can imagine a man like that, you know what happened to my building when almost 200 people died in synagogue? The CD of what happened is out. If they can go to the extent of killing 200 people spread all over the world, just to get me, so anything close to Jesus can be attacked.

In blessed memory of our Father in the Lord, Prophet T. B. Joshua

Today you would have turned 58 years old… In this moment of grief and hope and gratitude we know that though not in person amongst us, you are much amongst us through your teachings in our hearts! Our hearts are filled with profound appreciation to the Almighty God for your life; a life that has been invested in the bettering of the lives of other people!

Throughout the years you have helped countless people to come to the right knowledge of God, you have pointed millions to the secrets of a content and happy life based on the principles of the Word of God, you have fought for the rights of the less privileged and have been a rare example of dedication to those who are in need; your works of charity inspire us!

You have also made yourself available to be used by God, and God has used you as an instrument to bring healing and freedom to those oppressed by the enemy of our soul. He has also used you as His messenger and has made His opinion on matters of global significance known through you throughout the years.

Yet, in the midst of all these you have remained the humble man you have always been; a friend to the one who is lonely and a comfort to the one who is in pain! We feel blessed to call you our Father, our Mentor and our Friend!

We pray that God may continue to bless your toil of decades for the Kingdom; we pray that God may ever fill your spiritual children with His Spirit so they may continue the mission of the Heavenly Father you prepared them for.
This is a tribute to the one that was and yet it is a tribute to the LIVING, for our God “is not the God of the dead but of the living”!!! (Matthew 22:32)

Until we meet you in person again… Happy Birthday our daddy, from here on earth!

“Let us dedicate this day (June 12th, 2021) to prayer and fasting. Don’t forget the needy.” – Prophet TB Joshua

THE GENERATION OF VIPER THAT SEE HATRED AND DIVISION AS HOLINESS

The hypocritical generation where are you heading to?

I have thought of this over and over again and it’s painful. I remember some minister attacked me because I defended my brother prophet TB Joshua during the collapse building and in many occasions.
Why do we see hatred , discrimination, division as holiness?

To the young ministers in the prophetic ministry, don’t allow any one to demonise you, make you leave in fear because they hate the prophetic and deliverance ministry. God does not come from any man of God village, no man of God can pocket God . Many preachers have died of depression because of some men of God, who are holiness vampire, who built their holiness and ministry by running down other men of God. Please stay by your convictions.

We have turn ministry to a cult, if you don’t belong to our group, submit to our spiritual father you are fake and diabolic. When a man of God dies from their circle its normal but if it comes from the prophetic circle, they demonise and call it all sort of names. We are waiting at the gate for this so call deputy God to make a comment about Prophet TB Joshua.

Yes, it’s good that you all are posting and writing condolence messages about Prophet TB Joshua.

Ah, I see a generation that prefer the saying of the people than the saying of Christ…
“That they may be one…” Saith the Lord.

You never celebrated him on his birthday, you never identified with him or even be bold enough to post his pictures on your ministry social media pages but you are now excited to post his exit picture on every of your platform, can you now see that this generation celebrate death more than living?

I have seen many preachers that makes reference to the messages and words of Archbishop Benson Idahosa but these same preachers never made mentioned of him or his words while he was still alive but they criticized him with passion during his lifetime.

What a generation?

They kill their generals at the war front and then begin to hail them after they have gone to glory.

They persecute them and throw them out of their midst and latter mourn for their departure…

Those teachers who were very careful with Apostle Babalola then that he was using evil power for Ministry, many of such and their children now make reference to Apostle Babalola’s prayer life…

Who has bewitched these folks called Christians?

You said, that man of God is fake and you are real, why not let us come together to pray to the only True God and let’s see if any diabolical power will be able to stand before the God of heaven?

You are the real preacher but you hate and jealous another preacher, can’t you see that you are next in command to the devil?

O God save my generation from this spirit of hate, jealousy and competition.

TO THE YOUNG MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL:

Please don’t follow the footsteps of the jealous spirit of some elders, they tried but they failed totally in this aspect…

Since the day I discovered that all the dimensions of God are too versatile to be made manifest in one man and for that purpose God decides to manifest its divers manifestations through different people in different ways, I have made up my mind never to judge, disbelieve of criticize any man of God.

I’m tired of wickedness converted to holiness in this generation…

A generation that sees hatred as holiness..
A generation that that takes pleasure in discrimination than love…

There’s no difference between this generation and the generation that crucified Christ but when they read their Bible they blame those priest, scribe and Pharisees that killed the Master whereas their own generation appears more wicked than those of old.

Let love lead.

Shalom

TB Joshua Brings his Congregation and Viewers Back to the Bible

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV, Prayer mountain

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop and Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, may no longer need an elaborate introduction. He’s well known both by friends and foes across the globe. Anytime he enters the congregation goes aglow. But there is still something significantly missing about Prophet TB Joshua, his mission and his place in the scriptures in the minds of the public. It is sufficient for us to tell the world that SCOAN exists to move individuals closer to Jesus every day, leading to life transformation and changing nations. This is demonstrated through Prophet TB Joshua’s thorough teachings, demonstration of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, and engaging and making disciples for Jesus. In the world today there is no comparable ministry that reflects Jesus as clearly, precisely and truly as SCOAN. It is only the grace of God that this Ministry is located somewhere here in Lagos Nigeria, of all places Africa!!! It is maybe because Africa is perceived as poor but God knows we are rich in the Spirit.

So who is Prophet TB JOSHUA? Jesus once conducted a poll about Himself and Peter who gave the right answer must have done so influenced by the Holy Spirit. Shortly after when the same Peter knew that Jesus would be going through death on the cross he pulled Jesus aside and rebuked God’s divine plan. Similarly, the dispersed disciples leaving Jerusalem for Emmaus also took Jesus for a physical political deliverer of Israel in their discussion. In addition, the Jews were convinced that Jesus was coming to lead an insurrection and bring Israel to the point of being a sovereign nation. They like to be a glorious nation. Then the Jews surrounded Jesus and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly”, (John 20:24). Hence it is natural for everyone to know their prophets and their missions respectively.

Prophet TB Joshua has come to bring the world back to the Bible and pointing the way to Jesus. This generation has derailed a great deal, totally gone astray on posterity gospel in particularly, questing to raise large crowds who merely want to hear what they like and not what God is saying. The race for church leadership is going to continue to lead to more infighting and killings in the different congregations. SCOAN is not going to be immured in these struggles in the future but with a proper foundation and the Holy Spirit leading all shall be well. Hence SCOAN is a Church that will stand the test of time, with minimum rebuke from Jesus, if it continues in the path set by its founder. It will be so hard to advance beyond the spiritual high standard already set but Jesus told His disciples, “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high”, (Like 24:49).

YOU TUBE SUSPENDING EMMANUEL TV TOUCHES THE VERY HEART OF JESUS GOSPEL MESSAGE

Prophet T.B Joshua

When recently YouTube suspended Emmanuel TV’s YouTube Channel, citing a reason based on “Seemingly Social Justice” and not focused on “Sin and Redemption”, we have been taken aback. Their reason and action strike on the very heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the need to be set free from sin and all its practices and not take comfort in a cosmetic social justice. The Bible commands us to take care of the helpless, the unfortunate and defend those who are oppressed. This is a very important part of what it means to live out our Christian Faith and which Prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop of SCOAN and founder of Emmanuel TV, has been preaching across the globe, not just in a remote Lagos neighbourhood.

Perhaps it is necessary to attempt to align YouTube and many others on the core message of Jesus Christ which has become Christianity and the Gospel. It is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and resurrected, and thereby reconciled us to God. This is the message that will truly bring freedom to the oppressed. If an organization the status of YouTube intends to contribute meaningfully to public life in the 21st century it should have an open door for all. They must also understand that the Bible must be preached entirely, with power and glory in Jesus Christ, without compromise.

We also want YouTube to be aware that many “Christians” today find the concept of God willing His Son to die on the cross to be embarrassing or even appalling. They even take it to be “child abuse,” the idea of blood atonement is de-emphasized or denied altogether, with social justice and good works enthroned in its place. Prophet TB Joshua and his ministries, including Emmanuel TV, have attracted world attention, not for the reasons alluded to him by YouTube but by the sound and complete Gospel of Jesus Christ coming from them. Social justice can be persuasive and enticing, but carried out to its logical end in many areas it is an assault on the foundational framework of Christianity, leaving it disarmed of its saving power. We encourage YouTube and its owners to consider this moment a time to pray about finding and supporting fellowships that are more “Biblically Faithful Church Communities” rather than suspending or banning them. Emmanuel.

WHO KNOWS GOD’S INTENTIONS?

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Don’t measure your Christian life by your situation such as sickness, disease, depression, poverty or barrenness. Do not judge your Christianity by current life conditions . The way and manner God executes His plan in our lives differs. Who knows what would have happened if your prayer for better conditions had been answered? Who knows what the wealth would do to you and your family if you had received it at the time you wanted it?

God’s time is always the best, . As a Christian, whatever situation you are in may be to strengthen your desire for God more ; it may be to stop you for a while in order to prepare you for the challenges ahead; it may be to keep you for a new level. The consequences of our behaviour might have cost us our jobs, however it did not change the fact that God loves us and wants to get us back on our feet. Our Creator would forgive us and would show us what to do next. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and would forgive us our sins. He can forgive us anything.

All of us have made decisions that we regret and all of us can be forgiven and start all anew . Now, if you have not known the Lord, Jesus, give your life to him today and you will become connected to the One who made you. When He becomes your Lord and Saviour, everything becomes different; you think differently, you dream differently, have a sensitivity that you have never had, and have the privilege of having the Creator assist you in all that you do. Listen to the God of all creation today and your life life will be made whole.

BE CONSCIOUS OF THE FUTURE YOU’RE YET TO SEE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Anyone who gives to others is conscious of the future because he would find help if he ever falls on hard times. Never come around people just because of what you can get but come around people because of what you can give, for the Bible says it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). There must be mutual giving, understanding and love. This is the kind of relationship approved of God. By giving, we mean making selfless sacrifice, not giving only those things we do not really need, but what our life depends on too , what we cherish also . Each party involve should be ready to make some sacrifice in order to keep their relationship going. If you want to keep a relationship, you would not visit your friends, your partners only at your spare time – the time you do not have any serious matter at hand.

The primary reason in asking for God’s blessings should be to share them with others. When your needs are met, you have an abundance to share with those around you. Everything you have as a Christian came from God. Everything you will receive in your future will come from God. When you give for God’s sake, you are planting seeds that would be multiplied back unto you.

A CRY BORN OF FAITH!

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

We all cry sometimes but as the tears roll down your cheeks, have you ever stopped to ask yourself what gave birth to your crying? Is your cry born of self-pity or victimhood because you are looking for attention and lamenting over your present situation? Or is your cry born of faith because you want to receive from Jesus Christ?

In Matthew 15:22-28, the Canaanite woman cried out to Jesus for her daughter’s deliverance. In verse 26 Jesus replied “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”

This response was capable of discouraging any other woman in her position from pressing on with her request. She was not only ignored; she was also equated with a dog. But because she truly believed that Jesus was capable of meeting her needs, she knew that this seeming harsh treatment would soon pass away. She simply pressed on, saying, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Jesus saw this as a cry born of faith.

What are you crying about? The Lord may be taking His time to consider your request in order to test your faith just like the Canaanite woman. If your cry is born of faith because you want to receive of Jesus then you would respond with humility, modesty and perseverance. So be calm and determined and make sure your cry is a cry born of faith.

FEET OF CLAY

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

The spies that were sent to the promised land of Canaan came back to tell of the great giants that were there and fear filled all who heard them (Numbers 13:31-33).

What is your giant today that seems to stand in the way of God’s promises for your life? Is it sickness, joblessness, hatred, rejection, depression? When God commissioned Joshua to possess the promised land, He said, “Be strong and courageous” (Joshua 1:5-9). God knew that the biggest enemy Joshua would face would not be the giant in the land but the little voice inside saying, “Whom do you think you are?” “You are not able!”

In the same vein, our biggest enemy is not the challenges we are facing but the little voice inside driving us, saying, “You can do this, you can do that and get away with it. You can kill, destroy and steal and get away with it – you are different.” But we are not. We all have feet of clay to some extent.

Why are you thinking you are ‘out of touch’ when the Bible says that in this world there will be trouble? You can never live and be ‘out of touch’ until the end of your days. Whatever giant you are facing, don’t listen to the voice of your situation – the voice of doubt, the voice of temptation telling you to react badly. Whatever may be your ‘feet of clay’, let it draw you closer to God.

Jesus Paid a Sabbath Visit at the Pool of Bethesda

tb joshua, scoan,jesus

There was a feast of the Jews and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, (please read John chapter 5). The Pool of Bethesda was in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate (John 5:2), surrounded by five covered colonnades. The Sheep Gate was doubtless the gate through which the sheep travelled on their way to be sacrificed in the temple. During Jesus’ time, the Pool of Bethesda lay outside Jerusalem city walls. The name of the pool, “Bethesda,” is Aramaic. It means “House of Mercy”, “House of Grace”, or “House of Love”, and it is also a place where “a great number of disabled people used to lay; the blind, the lame, the paralyzed” (John 5:3). The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos Nigeria is called by many as “Arena of Liberty”, also having this same dual meaning, being regarded by some as a place where the infirm, the sick, the invalids, come seeking from Jesus. SCOAN is also a place of Grace where many receive healing, deliverance, the new life and freedom.

In the case of Bethesda legend had it that an angel would come down into the pool and “stir up the water.” According to the legend, the first person into the pool after the stirring of the water “was made well from whatever disease with which he or she was afflicted” (John 5:4). The Bible does not teach that this actually happened; rather, the superstitious belief probably arose because of the pool’s association with the nearby temple.

On the day that Jesus visited this public pool of Bethesda, there was a man there, possibly amongst scores of others, and he “had been an invalid for thirty-eight years” (John 5:5). Jesus interacted with him twice, before his physical healing at the public pool and afterwards in the temple. Jesus asked the man “Do you want to be healed?” Jesus knew that not every sick person would want to be healed, and that some could be so discouraged that they put away all hope. Jesus was dealing with a man who might have his heart withered as well as his legs. Hence Jesus started by building up the faith of this man. The man replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred, (verse 7). He was probably saying to himself, “if only I was able enough, fast enough, strong enough, have someone else to help me then I could have been healed”. Or he was basically saying, “Yes, I want to be made well, but I don’t see how this can happen”. The paralytic was in need of saving but there beside him was the Saviour of all mankind. When Jesus spoke to him, he heard the word of a mere man whilst he kept gazing at Bethesda for superstitious healing, expecting healing by work and not by faith or by grace.

Jesus swept aside all superstition and bypassed altogether the need for magic water with one command: “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk” (verse 8). The man was instantly cured, and “he picked up his mat and walked” (verse 9). The sick man limited God’s help to his own ideas and did not dare promise himself more than he conceived in his mind. We create a small God in our heads, a God who is limited by whatever box we try to put Him into, a God we limit by what we have heard, out thoughts, or what we read in the newspapers.

Amazingly, not everyone was happy about the man’s miraculous healing. The day Jesus healed the man at the poolside happened to be a Sabbath. As the man left Bethesda, the Jewish leaders saw him only carrying his mat and didn’t see him walking and healed. They stopped him. “It is the Sabbath,” they said. “The law forbids you to carry your mat” (verse 10). The man told them that he was simply obeying orders. The man who made me well said to me, “Pick up your mat and walk” (verse 11). The Jews inquired who would so brazenly promote Law-breaking, but the man who was healed had no idea who He was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd, (verse 13). The contrary men of the world see only criticism and not the healing, or the changed life, or the restored sanity. The reaction of the Jewish leaders shows that, no matter how much proof God provides, there will be some people who refuse to see the truth. Jesus was an awesome Miracle Worker, but the religious leaders couldn’t see the miracle. All they could see was that someone had violated a rule. The issue was not the breaking of God’s command, for Jesus fulfilled all the Law and was completely subject to it (Matthew 5:17). The only thing being broken was a pharisaical interpretation of one of God’s laws. Therefore, a blessing meant to increase faith only increased the blindness of those who refused to acknowledge the blessing.

Jesus knew that the man who was physically healed still needed some spiritual healing. In fact, the religious leaders would have created more confusion, doubts and more unbelief in him. Just like in our days sponsored oppositions keep discouraging many not to visit SCOAN and be healed or to come and know more about Jesus. Hence Jesus traced him to the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you” (verse 14). Jesus’ words are a rebuke of unnamed sin. The man was probably living contrary to God’s will somehow and he received a warning of “something worse.” What could be worse than thirty-eight years of paralysis? May be an eternity in hell (see Mark 9:47). Thus Jesus healed him both physically and spiritually.

The Bible listed a few of the people fortunate to have this same direct encounter with the Lord Jesus for our benefit. Jesus healed people and told them, “Your faith has made you well”. He healed 10 lepers (Luke 1:11-19), the woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20-22), a blind man (Mark10: 46-52). In this particular case, it was at Jesus’ compassion. Other cases of people who encountered Jesus include the twelve apostles, Nicodemus (John 3), the woman at Jacob’s well in the town of Samaria called Sychar (John 4), Mary and Martha (John 11), the Apostle Paul on his way to Damascus, and many others. An encounter with Jesus would often not be exactly what we expect but it will bring out our true needs, revealing who we truly are, get to the true heart of the issues and sending us out to the field to tell others all about Jesus. Jesus will be known for Whom He truly is, The Son of God, The Messiah of the world, the Prophet of the world, the Spring of Living Water. This is how SCOAN is changing lives and changing nations by leading people to have an encounter with Jesus so that we are both physically and spiritually healed. Emmanuel

JOY FOR THE JOURNEY

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize” (1 Corinthians 9:24)

Do you know what you need to run life’s race? It is not fast legs, it is not intelligence, it is not good connections or shortcuts.

In this world, fast runners do not always win the race. The brave, the strong do not always win the battle. The wise do not always earn a living and intelligent people do not always rise to high positions.

As believers, our life is a race. Jesus knew the troubles in this world would rob His followers of peace and tempt them to give up – that is why He said in Luke 22:32, “I have prayed for you that your faith will not fail.”

If you have faith in God, then joy is a fruit of that faith – true joy is something only believers have! “You will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy” (Psalm 16:1)

There is one thing that will get us through this journey, that will strengthen us to finish the race, that will equip us to fight this battle – and that is joy. That is God’s promise for you – to give you joy for the journey.

HIS NAME IS NOT A SPELL

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV,

“In Jesus’ name” can be heard coming out of the mouths of many in Church today but how many actually believe in His name in their heart? If we speak with our mouth what we do not believe in our heart, we are using the name of Jesus as a spell or charm. If we think we can resist satan by using Christ’s name as a spell or charm, he will prevail against us. This is what happened to the seven sons of Sceva (Acts 19:13-16).

The seven sons of Sceva were confessing what they did not believe. Because Paul said, they too said. There is a difference between in His name and on His name. When I say on His name – I mean, the imitation of man – looking to others for direction. Because you see me pray in the name of the Lord, you begin to pray, not that you believe.

The belief in your heart is released by faith out of your mouth. It is God’s Word coming out of your mouth that produces an overcoming spirit in you. God’s Word must be the foundation of faith confession. If your heart and mind are filled with God’s Word, you will speak that Word. He is the Word on our lips: In the name of Jesus Christ! The Spirit of God is the Word on our lips (1 Corinthians 12:3). It is definitely God’s desire to bless you – but you must believe His Word, speak His Word and obey His Word before you can receive His blessings

Encounter of Prophet Elijah the Tishbite and the Widow of Zarephath

ProElijah, Tishbite, Zarephath

The word of the LORD came unto Elijah, the Tishbite from Gilead, that he should go and hide by the brook Cherith, (please read 1 Kings 17). God instructed Elijah this way to protect the prophet from the wrath of King Ahab. God also told him that he would drink of the brook and that ravens had been commanded to feed him there. Prophet Elijah went and did according to the word of the LORD. There at the brook, the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening and he drank of the brook. After a while, the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land according to the word of the prophet before King Ahab. Elijah had said unto King Ahab, “As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word”.

Then the word of the LORD came unto Elijah again to go to Zarephath a region of Sidon. Sidon was an ancient and wealthy city of Phoenicia, on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, about twenty English miles to the north of Tyre in Lebanon and some fifty equal miles from Nazareth. This time God had provided a widow there to sustain Prophet Elijah with water and food. This was the woman we will refer to as “the Widow of Zarephath”. Elijah obeyed; he arose and went to Zarephath. When he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow was there gathering sticks. Elijah called to her, and said, “Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink”. As she was going to fetch it, Elijah called to her, and said, “Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thy hand”.

At this point, the woman confessed her circumstance and limitations saying, “As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die”. She wasn’t a wealthy widow but her first miracle had just begun when Elijah said unto her, “Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me and after make for thee and thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth”. She went and did according to the saying of Elijah. Then this widow, her house, and Prophet Elijah were sustained for many days because “the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah”. This encounter signalled the beginning of many more miracles to come her way, revealing the Almighty God’s awesome power and love for everyone who would obey Him.

A tragic event happened to this widow over time, “that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him”. Her son died. She said unto Elijah, “What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? Art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?”

This widow recognized that sin would kill families sin would kill communities. She might not have known that we could turn away at any time from our sin and that Jesus would die to give us freedom. Now we know that God always provides us with a way to escape. Prophet Elijah said unto her, “Give me thy son”. Elijah took her son, carried him up into a loft where he abode, and laid him upon his bed, and cried unto the LORD. Elijah said, “O LORD my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?” Elijah stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, “O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again”. The Sovereign and Mighty LORD heard the voice of Elijah and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother. Elijah said, “See, thy son liveth”. The joyful widow also said to Elijah, “Now by this, I know that thou art a man of God and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is Truth”.

Some Bible commentaries suggested that the woman’s use of sarcasm was designed to shame the prophet as being the cause of her son’s death. Wrongly too, many go to SCOAN with problems but praying in the mind, “If he is a man of God he should locate me”, or telling Jesus on the cross “If You are the Son of God, jump down”. Nevertheless, Elijah did not try and rationalise with the grieving woman but took the son up and prayed to God asking for His help. The Lord heard the voice of Elijah and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. Elijah, therefore, regained his honour and his status. Other commentators related that the son raised by Elijah was none other than the Prophet Jonah, most notably associated with the incident involving a giant fish. Similarly, the one raised by Elisha became Prophet Habakkuk.

Prophet Elijah walked with God in obedience and he didn’t let the different or the difficult circumstances he was passing through affect his faith or his relationship with God. Prophet Elijah had a mark of God visible to a widow from a distant land which she saw and confessed with her mouth. Beyond the sustained food that prophetically came her way, after her son was revived she said, “Now by this, I know that thou art a man of God and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is Truth”. Jesus told His disciples in (Mark 16:17-18) that “These signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. By this, the men of the world would know that we have the mark of Christ, even by the outcomes of our prayers, by our unconditional love and compassion. The disciples were called Christians first in Antioch, (Acts 11:26) because the people saw Jesus Christ in the spoken words of His disciples, in their deeds and acts. The disciples taught and did exactly like their Master Jesus. The widow of Zarephath was similarly able to recognize Prophet Elijah because of the excellent spirit of God living in him.

Jesus referred to the story in (Luke 4:23-28) when His native people wouldn’t believe Him. Jesus said unto them, “Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country”. Jesus also said, “Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias (Elijah), when the heaven was shut up three years and six months when great famine was throughout all the land; But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow”.

There are a lot of similarities between Prophets Elijah and TB Joshua on one hand, and also between this widow and Prophet TB Joshua in another level. The widow opened her door for the man of God just as Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN keeps opening his door receiving and sustaining many people under his roof. In another way today many Nigerians are filled with wrath, envy, jealousy, doubt, unbelief about the works of Prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, in Lagos Nigeria because he is one of them in Nigeria. Elijah has remained a major Bible Prophet and we assure the public that after Prophet TB Joshua has completed his mission and is gone, Nigerians will know that TB Joshua has been a major Prophet of God and SCOAN will become a Christian Pilgrim Centre for Nigeria, where all nations will be coming to worship and to receive healing. Nevertheless, Prophet TB Joshua shall accomplish the task he is ordained and appointed by God to do because Jesus said He will be with His disciples to the very end.

The general message is that whether it be a TB Joshua of SCOAN, or any other persons professing to be men or women of God, Gamaliel’s counsel in Acts chapter 5 seems most appropriate for cases where any group is in any doubt. Gamaliel, a Pharisees and a doctor of the law, who had a good reputation among his people said, “Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel, or this work, be of men, it will come to nought. But if it is of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God”. We advise that it is better to be found praying for the entire Church of Christ and all classes of God’s Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, this end-time, rather than wrongly fighting against God thinking that you are fighting for God. The anti-Christ might have been around but carnal minds wouldn’t recognize him or her. We should be vigilant and watchful. In any case, how could a Zarephath widow have accepted Elijah into her house and fed the Prophet but King Ahab of Israel, or Queen Jezebel the wife of King Ahab, would not believe? How could God have chosen a poor widow from a distant land to sustain His anointed servants and billionaires in the land would not even be recorded in history books at the end of life? Unless an individual has a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, the end may be very sad indeed. Emmanuel

FAITH FOCUSES ON GOD

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

What is your situation? What is that unpleasant circumstances that you are facing right now or the mountain surrounding you? Rather than wallowing in self-pity, which will only plunge you deeper into the pit, why not stop and take time to change your focus? Faith focuses on God, not on our problems. Therefore, it is time to step out in boldness and take God at His Word, for faith is expecting Jesus to do what He has promised.

Don’t let your bad experiences wipe you out. Isaiah 40:31 teaches that we should put our hope in God and thereby turn our scars into stars. Remember, all of us have made decisions we regret and all of us can be forgiven and start over. Christians can make mistakes too, but the difference is that they already have a relationship with God. Since you already have a relationship with God, He is there at all times to reconcile you.

Go to God about your behaviour, open your mouth to confess with all your heart and it will be over.

Walking by Faith with Jesus and Be on God’s Side

tb joshua, scoan

In (2 Corinthians 5:7) Apostle Paul encouraged the Corinthians that “We walk by FAITH, not by SIGHT.” The desire and plan of God for each of us is “how to disciple us to learn how to live by faith, not by sight”. God wants us to learn how to live in a loving relationship with Him, to recognize His voice and commune with Him, to discover His will for our lives, to make right decisions to follow His direction and to live out His perfect plan demonstrated to us in His only Son, Jesus Christ. Hence walking by faith is simply being where God is and doing what God is doing. It is necessary to learn how to walk by faith, not by sight, because, “whatever is not of faith is sin,” (Rom. 14:23), and also because, ”without faith, it is impossible to please God,” (Heb. 11:6).

The public may not understand fully what God is doing, especially in the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria. The carnal man is walking by sight alone, or the natural man is being controlled by sight, and not by faith. Even to receive from God through the Ministries of SCOAN, or from the Bishop of SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua, individual needs to come and exercising faith in Jesus Christ and His Word. Therefore walking by faith, (and not by sight alone) with Jesus in this pilgrim way is a continuous process for every degree of Christians. Walking by sight means to depend on human sufficiency, human wisdom, human ingenuity, human calculation, and so on. Whereas walking by faith means depending on Christ’s sufficiency, Christ’s wisdom, His power, His direction, and His enablement. ”It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man”, (Psalms 118:8).

The people walking with God by faith are on the Lord’s side. For example, in the wilderness the people of Israel departed God to worship a golden calf they fashioned for themselves whilst Moses was on the Mount. After reproving with that guilty nation, Moses called out, “Who is on the Lord’s side?” When we walk away from God we become God’s adversary and no longer on the Lord’s side. In this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic SCOAN has been reaching out to every corner of the globe offering prayers and healing to people in their homes or kept in isolation centres. The same hand of fellowship is still being stretched out by SCOAN to every people in isolation centres including to Nigeria, Prophet TB Joshua’s homeland. But it’s only a few people walking in the spirit by faith that would see that the Right hand of God is Power and that it can save, it delivers and it can heal. It seems that Nigeria is not only infected by a multitude of religious sects it is also infected by divisions within sects, between sects, and with people walking only by sight. Many believe more on what they can see, touch, whatever they read, and many think of God as One to be on their side. Rather it is that the name of the Lord is a strong Protective Tower and the righteous runs there for salvation. Take the step now and run to God’s side for protection, healing and deliverance.

Fortunately for Nigeria, and according to the official figures from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, Nigeria Covid-19 update as at 2 September 2020 indicates a total of 54439 confirmed infection cases, 42439 recovered cases and 1027 deaths. This gives a death rate of those with outcomes to be 2.4%, and net active cases 10973. From the position of science, this is an encouraging update with no major course for further alarm, the curve is turning. Hence the public will have the false impression not to be in a hurry calling out people in isolation centres, (almost empty centres), to any prayer line. But from the spirit, and even if there is no single active case in the land, Jesus is saying after our healing “to go and sin no more”. He is also encouraging us that if COVID-19 hasn’t condemned us to death Jesus hasn’t either. It is not Jesus that condemns but our sins, our selfish desires, our weaknesses and our inability to walk by faith with God.

Coronavirus Maybe Only the Tip of the Iceberg for the Era of Humility

TB Joshua, SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

With the advent of COVID-19 pandemic, many Christian sects are predicting that the end of the world is at hand. Of course, Christian prophecies about the coronavirus, about locust swarms, about a socioeconomic pandemic, or the consequent era of humility are worthy of attention. Prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria, has spent considerable time drawing the attention of the world to what God has been showing to him. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has infected more than 25 million people globally since it emerged and has been branded a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Several conspiracy theorists and some Christian groups have responded by flooding social media in recent months with their versions of warnings of the world’s fiery demise. Hence both Christians and world scientists believe that they have a say on world affairs, especially as relates to the end-time plagues. Nevertheless, there is still no convergence of opinions so far but that the coronavirus shouldn’t be viewed as the end-time plague. The giant swarms of locusts which are also devastating, extremely unusual storms, earthquake and volcanic activity are both on the rise, and other very dangerous diseases that are sweeping across the globe are referred to as other signs that are confounding human knowledge.

The situation which Prophet Habakkuk faced in his time was the imminent invasion of the Southern Kingdom of Judah by the Babylonians, also known as the Chaldeans. This invasion eventually happened and Jerusalem fell to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The Lord revealed to Habakkuk beforehand that Judah was going to be punished for her sin by the Chaldeans. Unlike prophets Joel, Zephaniah or Amos, Habakkuk did not even mention the possibility that destruction could be averted by repentance. He did not call for national repentance. It was too late. Instead, he predicted the destruction of Judah, and beyond that the doom of the Chaldeans themselves. Prophet Habakkuk promised that the only way to preserve our life through the judgment was by faith. Hence, even though destruction is decreed for all the nations of the world now, there is hope for individuals who hold fast their confidence in God. The full-blown doctrine of justification by faith, taught by Apostle Paul in Romans and Galatians, is the seed here and for our instruction. The just (righteous, faithful, true and obedient follower of Jesus) shall live by faith. There is hope for those who will hold firm their trust in God as the calamity comes, COVID-19 or otherwise.

Prophet TB Joshua’s measuring instrument of the just, the righteous, the true obedient servant of Jesus is in his or her degree of “letting go any offence, then constant meditation on the Word, and praying without ceasing”. The world is truly passing through a big storm and uncharted terrain but there is hope for those who will hold firm to their unshaken faith in Christ Jesus. We have two messages from Prophet Habakkuk. The first message is that proud person, people whose strength or ingenuity is their god (Habakkuk 1:11, 16, 2: 4, 19), will come to a woeful end, even though they may enjoy prosperity for a season either as God’s chosen ones in Judah or as the victors over Judah. All the proud, whether they are Jew or Gentile, men or women, they will perish in the unending ongoing judgment of God. The second message of Prophet Habakkuk is that the just shall live by his faith as a principle (Habakkuk 2:4). Finally, the prophet celebrates it as his song in (Habakkuk 3:16–19). Prophet Habakkuk says, “Even when all the fruit and produce and flocks and herds are destroyed and my very life is threatened, yet will I rejoice in God.” Hence banking our hope on God no matter what and all shall be well.

DON’T REMAIN A VICTIM!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Who has hurt you today or in the past? Are you having feelings of resentment or harbouring a grudge as a result of offence? As a child of God, how you respond to your situation matters. Imagine the deep hurt Joseph felt when his siblings tore his favourite coat of many colours, threw him into a dry pit and left him for dead in Genesis 37. Although treated badly by his brothers, Joseph did not hold onto the offence; rather, he let go of it knowing that beyond offence, there God is. Joseph released forgiveness and obtained the Lord’s favour – being exalted to the highest position of Prime minister and special advisor to the king.

Matthew 6:14-15 – “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Many are asking for blessing but have not let go of the grudge that is holding the blessing ransom. Offence is an effective instrument used by satan to rob many Christians of their blessings. So, be on your guard, for like a fish suddenly caught in a net and like a bird suddenly caught in a trap, so too, the devil lies in wait to catch you in the trap of offence. Don’t remain a victim of self-imprisonment. Release yourself, for you will receive in a moment what you have been seeking for years the moment you let go of offence!

MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN Emmanuel TV

Are you someone who watches things happen, someone who wondered what happened or someone who makes things happen?

We have a goal to reach that needs all our energy. But unfortunately today we spend so much time, effort and energy fighting the wrong battle, chasing shadows, lamenting on past failures and nursing our wounds that offence has caused us.

How do you make things happen? It takes focused action, personal discipline and plenty of energy every day to make things happen. Remember, winning begins inside you. When you make it happen on the inside, in your relationship with God, that success will be transferred to the outside.

When you take care of the depth of your relationship with God, God will take care of the breadth of your success. To pray as God wants us to pray is the greatest achievement on earth – because you hear God and He hears you. Such a life of prayer costs; it needs sacrifice. How much time do you spend getting your heart in tune for prayer? How much time do you spend praying in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, making melodies in your heart to God?

PRAYER: Help us to use our time right, oh Holy Spirit!

Known by Love and not by the Multitude of Persecutors

tb joshua ministry

The entire State of Israel is called “the Holy Land” probably because of many prophets that God raised from that Land, because of God’s Promise to Abraham through to David, to Jesus of Nazareth, or the tombs of many prophets adorning the State. We think the State of Israel should be called the Holy Land because of people walking in the footsteps of Jesus of Nazareth. Nevertheless, in June 2019, the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) met in Nazareth for an International Crusade that was led by its Bishop, Prophet TB Joshua. It is only men like Prophet TB Joshua that could have countered the different classes of opposition that erupted aiming to prevent the International Crusade from holding. It was a highly organized opposition that faced the crusade because of the person of TB Joshua, not just because he was coming from Nigeria or Africa. Openly they called Prophet TB Joshua, and the entire SCOAN team, many unprintable names. By now we had expected Christians or none Christians to have known Prophet TB Joshua or some of the numerous people working with SCOAN. The Nazareth event nevertheless unearthed the experience of our Lord and Saviour Jesus of Nazareth. We know that Jesus would have been provoked beyond measure before He spoke to those who were wrong, but thought that they were right, when He said to them, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous . . . Serpents, a brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, that on you may come all the righteous bloodshed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. . . (Matthew 23:29-37). On the contrary, Prophet TB Joshua was able to promote Jesus Christ of Nazareth, he promoted peace and love to the different peoples of the State of Israel and peoples of over 100 nationalities that went. It was glorious.

Jesus told His disciples in (John 1518-21) that “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you . . . If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake because they do not know Him who sent Me. Apostle Peter also said, “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified”, (1 Peter: 12-14).

Therefore, who are prophets of God of our days and how do we recognize them? It is too cheap and lazy labelling everyone as false. In Philippians Chapter 4 the Bible teaches us to “Beware of false teachers, false prophets, false bishops, etc.” This warning is cardinal to every people looking for the second coming of Jesus in an era where greedy and self-promotion rule. God’s Spirit specifically tells us that in later days there will be men who abandon the true faith and allow themselves to be spiritually seduced by teachings of the devil, teachings given by men who are hypocrites, whose consciences are as dead as seared flesh. Of course, anyone will be doing its right duty as Christ’s minister if they remind their church members of these things (false teaching), and also prove themselves as ministers who owe their strength to the truth of the faith in Christ Jesus, living by His Spirit and His Word only. Every Christian should take time and trouble to keep self spiritually fit, and especially avoiding ideas, philosophies, and teachings contrary to Jesus and His teaching. Jesus said in (Matthew 16) that, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?” By their love, we shall know them. Prophet TB Joshua said repeatedly that whatever we do in secret will reflect in the open and determining how much we can achieve in the name of Jesus. Jesus said His Words are “Spirit and Life”. This Word of Jesus is close to His Prophets, even in their mouths, in their hearts, that is the Word of faith which they preach every day, (Romans 10:8). This Word spoken to us by Jesus makes us and His prophets clean (John 15:3). Motivational speakers may draw large crowds because they speak sweet words. Even if they are incantations such words would not produce godly outcomes at the end.

This generation is most likely passing through the said last days, the very perilous times Apostle Paul was telling Timothy (2 Timothy 3:1-7). Whilst every Christian should be on the watch for “Jesus’ Coming” because our Lord is coming, it should be pointed out that Jesus loves His Church and therefore will not deny us of His true Godly Teachers, Prophets, Bishops, Church Workers, and the Holy Spirit for the propagation of complete sound doctrine for our salvation. However, amongst these may also be the false ones. The parable of the “Wheat and the Tares” can be found in (Matthew 13:2-30). Jesus said, “But when men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way”, (Matthew 13:25). Therefore every congregation is likely to be infected by these false teachings, false prophecies, false claims and people falsely accusing others but never able to correct themselves. Their zeal, driven by jealousy, greed and ignorance, is of the flesh and not from the Spirit of God. Emmanuel

VIDEO: Israel Made TB Joshua ‘Ambassador of Tourism’

tb joshua nazareth israel

TB Joshua Meeting in Nazareth – Day One

Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua has released a documentary on YouTube detailing the ‘persecution’ he endured during his visit to Nazareth, Israel last year followed by a national award presented to him by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism in the aftermath of the event.

In June 2019, Joshua held a two-day event in the historic hometown of Jesus Christ, which attracted thousands of religious tourists from across the globe.

However, the event held at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice was fiercely criticised by local religious figures and nearly faced cancellation due to the intensity of attacks.

“This man is only promoting lies, and anyone who follows this liar is unjust. That is why we ban our people from attending,” a representative for the Christian Church and Pastoral Council in Nazareth stated in the lead-up to the event.

“This visit that is going to be held by this antichrist and wizard – we, the Islamic movement – completely reject it,” noted Osama Haha, the head of Islamic Movement in Nazareth.

“Jesus warned us there would be false prophets coming. We do not know where this man is coming from or the purpose behind everything he does,” stated Father Seaan Bajali, a Roman Orthodox Priest.

“Boycotting the sorcerer Zionist is a national and religious duty,” the Executive Committee of the Orthodox Forum said in a statement.

A protest was even organized with hundreds trouncing through the city in Northern Israel with placards decrying the coming event and people shouting: “Let this witch get away from us!”

Despite the ‘noise’ surrounding the event, it was held successfully with Joshua preaching a message on love and ministering “healing and deliverance in Jesus’ name” to the large crowds that gathered.

“Love for fellow man breaks down all barriers. It melts all hindrances. It dissolves prejudice, misunderstanding and suspicion,” he preached in a sermon whilst a local mosque blared out via a loud speaker, “Do not participate with this wizard.”

A group of religious figures even visited the venue of Mount Precipice after the event and performed a ‘cleansing ritual’ with water, leaves and salt.

However, interviews with local figures after the event revealed a markedly different impression, with residents celebrating the economic and social impact of Joshua’s visit to the region and calling for him to return for future events.

“This is the first time in 2,000 years we have heard the name of Jesus proclaimed publicly in Nazareth,” stated a tearful Nazarene Christian.

The event, which was broadcast on local television throughout Israel and featured in The New York Times and Reuters, subsequently attracted the attention of Israel’s Ministry of Tourism, which gave an award to the Nigerian cleric and made him a ‘Tourism Ambassador’.

“TB Joshua, on the occasion of your visit to Israel, I am honoured to recognise you as a true friend of Israel. Thank you for your support and solidarity, which are deeply appreciated. It is my pleasure to name you as a ‘Tourism Goodwill Ambassador For Israel’,” wrote Yariv Levin, the Minister of Tourism.

“You only need to hear ‘Go!’ from above. Who are you to say no? When God says yes, no one can say no! The noise of north and south, the noise of east and west does not matter. It only promotes,” Joshua explained in an interview accompanying the documentary.

Joshua is the first ‘Evangelical Pastor’ to have held a public Christian event in Nazareth; the only other religious figure to have had such an event was Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.

Reacting to the documentary, followers of Joshua were quick to salute his courage, opining that such degree of attacks would easily discourage those of lesser faith.

“It depends on who sent you,” the prominent cleric concluded. “Above all powers; above all kings. What can man do? Can man stop God? No. Capital NO!”

UNSHAKEABLE!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Hebrews 12:28 – “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.”

I believe everyone will agree that we are living in an unsteady world where nothing is certain. The problem we face is that everything about us can be shaken – our emotions, our health, our finances, our relationships. That is why we cannot place our faith on things that can be seen.

Bad news can shake us, sickness can shake us, disappointment can shake us but with Jesus, the Rock of ages, we can walk steady, live steady and remain steady in an unsteady world.

As believers, we stand on the promise of receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken. Right now, the Kingdom of God is not far from you or beyond your reach; it is right in front of you in the Word of God.

No matter how unsteady the world around you appears to be, you can make this confession your roadmap: “I choose not to be broke, I choose not to live in poverty, I choose not to walk in disappointment, I choose to walk in God’s way. I am living steady, walking steady in an unsteady world!”

“Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” Psalm 119:165

Go to TB Joshua of SCOAN, and do what He Tells You

tb joshua, scoan, emmauel tv, coronavirus

We read in Genesis 41 about Joseph, one of the 12 sons of Jacob, sold by ten of his brothers at a slave price to Egypt. But in time Joseph survived the ordeals in the pit, in Potiphar’s house and in the prison to become a ruler in Egypt. In Genesis 41:41 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.” Joseph was now the Prime Minister in Egypt with enormous authority and powers. The famine period Joseph predicted had come and “When all Egypt began to feel the famine, the people cried to Pharaoh for food. Then Pharaoh told all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph and do what he tells you,” (Genesis 41:55). Similarly, when Jacob (Joseph’s father in Canaan) found out that grain was for sale in Egypt, he said to his sons, “Why do you keep looking at each other? I’ve heard there’s grain for sale in Egypt. Go there (to Joseph) and buy some for us so that we won’t starve to death”, (Genesis 42:1-3). Hence you come to Joseph. After all, you know that he will solve your hunger, go to Joseph and do whatever he tells you to do because you have faith in him.

In John chapter 2: 1-11 we read that Mary the mother of Jesus, Jesus Himself and His disciples, we’re called to a wedding ceremony. They ran out of wine and the mother of Jesus saith unto Him, “They have no wine”. Jesus’ mother did not ask Him to make, buy, or create more wine. She simply told Him what her concern was, and told others to follow His lead. His mother saith unto the servants, “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it”. It is significant to note that Mary didn’t ask for anything in particular. She did, however, told the servants to listen and to obey His instructions. Mary seemed content to trust in God’s plans, even when she didn’t know all the details. All she knew was that we should “Go to Jesus” for every one of our numerous concerns. Mary had absolute faith in Jesus, even though she was His mother. She recognized Jesus as the Messiah that would solve our burden by going to Him.

At several other occasions, individuals went to Jesus with their troubles and concerns for healing, for more understanding, even to truly known if He was the Promised Messiah. For example, in (Matthew 14: 21-31) where Jesus walked on the sea but His disciples thought It was a ghost. Jesus reassured them saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”

So Jesus said, “Come.” As long as Peter kept his focus on Christ, he could do the impossible, and walking on the sea to meet Jesus. But once he began walking by sight, fear gripped him. Under the control of doubt or fear, Peter was no longer able to do the impossible. Hence everyone should come to Jesus without fear, doubt or any anxiety because He is the Messiah of the universe. Go to Jesus.

Today across the globe many people are coming to see Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, in Lagos Nigeria or meet him in any of his International Crusades. Jesus had faced our helplessness before with compassion. “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd (Matthew 9:36)”. There is a lot of love and compassion when you come to SCOAN, known by many as Arena of Liberty. Despite the long queue and the big crowd of people to be encountered by those who will eventually make it to the Arena of Liberty about 99% of others who wish to come are hindered. Many listen to advice from other pastors, friends, or reading the internet largely owned by the devil and his agents. Many come only because of their problems and for other unholy motives. We recommend that you come to Jesus as you believe that He loves and doesn’t want you to perish in the consequences of your sin.

When Pharaoh told them to “Go to Joseph” he knew that Joseph had the answer. Similarly when Mary the mother of Jesus told the servants to “Go to Jesus and do whatever He tells you to do” she had no iota of doubt. She knew how far she’d come with Jesus and that Jesus is not just her son but “the Son of God, the Messiah”. Hence come to Jesus and whatever He tells you please do it. The people in SCOAN are generously telling each person to join a Living Church, a church where Christ presence and supremacy is acknowledged, recognized, preached and worshipped. Many still look at Baby Jesus in the manger, as the Crucified One. Yes, but Jesus is the Mighty God, the Saviour of the world, Messiah the King, the One that was, that is and Who is coming soon. Come to Jesus. Finding who Jesus is in SCOAN may assist you to have a closer walk with Him, that is if you will only come. Emmanuel

FAITH ACTS NOW!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Faith is our movement towards God. Faith enables us to see the unseen and thus endure when the visible world offers us no hope or encouragement. It was faith that enabled blind Bartimaeus to cry out to Jesus against the opposition of the crowd and receive his sight. It was faith that enabled four men to reach Jesus through the crowd, by lowering the paralytic man through the roof. Then he picked up his mat and walked. It was faith that enabled the woman with the issue of blood to press through the crowd, touch the hem of Jesus’ garment and receive instant healing. As seen in the above examples, we demonstrate what we believe by what we do. Faith acts now, believes now and receives now!

In God’s Word there is hope, forgiveness, direction, instruction, revelation and everything we need to live for God here and now. Because of Christ, all these have been made available to you and I. So, instead of simply being an onlooker, be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints by actively reaching out and taking God at His Word. Reach out and take the healing that is available to you, reach out and take the deliverance that is available for you, reach out and take the blessing that is available for you – by reaching out and acting faith now!

SCOAN Team are Praying for You

tb joshua, scoan

Prophet TB Joshua

Apostle Paul said in (Romans 1:9), “For God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the Gospel of His Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you always in my prayers”. Similarly, this Thursday, August 13, 2020, I was fortunate to receive a call from the man in SCOAN and his last encouraging words to me in the brief call was “We are praying for you”. It is a spirit-lifting moment knowing that you are not alone, that Prophet TB Joshua or his team in SCOAN is praying for you. In this COVID-19 pandemic era, we all need to keep praying for each other the more. Since the congregation worship has been limited by COVID-19 many families have been affected in different levels, and not just by COVID-19. Some of the challenges confronting Christians this pandemic era include disunity, lack of caring for each other regarding safety, isolation, or stress. But SCOAN is praying for you.

In hard times like this, not every pastor can be a certified public therapist when it comes to comforting others. But we’d watched the team in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, how effectively they manage to bring smiles back to people in difficult and impossible circumstances across the globe. They offer effectual prayers that bring healing, deliverance, hope, renewed strength, increased faith and comfort. So when someone you know experiences a bad day, especially a loss of someone dear to them or a tragedy, how do you know what to say? Remember that the loss of a son may be different from the loss of a father, the loss of a wife different from the loss of a mother or grandmother, and so on. Pray for them and whenever you have the opportunity to tell them that, “I’m praying for you”.

We have to learn to say appropriately that, “I’m Praying for You and Your Family”, “I’m Praying for You” to a loved one, “I’m Praying for You” to a total stranger or acquaintance, or a fellowship group. Though telling someone that we’re praying for them may sound like the best option, but perhaps it won’t cut it. Maybe the person we are comforting doesn’t relate well to prayer. The Holy Spirit will give us other ways to extend comfort in not so many words. God’s Word says we can have confidence that when we pray, He hears us and we have the petitions we desire of Him. The only requirement is that those petitions must be made by His will for our lives. The question becomes, “How do we know His will?” The answer is simple. His will is in His Word which is the Bible. Hence we should pray what the Bible says and the Holy Spirit will help us to pray aright for people in their different situations. We should always also pray for Prophet TB Joshua, the entirely SCOAN team and individually.

The “effectual fervent prayer” is the energizing power similar to an electrical current that brings energy to a circuit. It is a passionate prayer, a heartfelt and persistent prayer. It’s a prayer driven by faith, love and total trust in God to do what only He can do for us or the persons being prayed for. The Amplified Bible, renders it another especially illuminating way, “The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available {dynamic in its working}” (James 5:16). This kind of prayer is quite the opposite of a lethargic, repetitious or superficial type. Whilst it’s passionate, it is not merely whipping up emotions, or generating exciting sounds or putting together a certain set of words, but rather expressing intense sincere confidence in God.

Interestingly, when the Holy Spirit inspired James to illustrate such prayer, he chose Prophet Elijah, whose prayers God had used to demonstrate His mighty power. “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit” (James 5:16-18). James’ point is that, although Prophet Elijah’s mighty prayers and exploits were legendary, Elijah was also a man of frailties and flaws like us. Thus, James’ message is clear. If God could hear and answer the passionate faith-filled prayers of Elijah, “a common man with a nature like ours,” He can likewise hear and answer our prayers too. The Lord is eager to answer the effectual, fervent prayers of ordinary, but righteous followers of Jesus Christ. Emmanuel

BE CONSCIOUS OF YOUR WEAKNESS

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Today, many of us no longer see ourselves as God sees us because we are no longer conscious of our sin – I mean, our weaknesses. That is why, instead of acknowledging our weaknesses before Him, we dare His purity and holiness when we come to His presence only to ask for His blessings.

“When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, ‘Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!’ For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken… And Jesus said to Simon, ‘Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.’” – Luke 5:8-10 NKJV

Here we see, before Jesus, Peter was conscious of his weakness and believed that Jesus knew him as a sinner. That was why he felt undeserving of His presence. In response to Peter’s attitude toward his sin, Jesus did not look at his past but rather gave birth to his future as a fisher of men.

In whichever way you come to His presence, you must believe that God knows who you were, who you are and who you shall be. Right now, begin to acknowledge your position as a sinner in need of forgiveness and say to God, “Dirty as I am Lord, You can still cleanse me”, because no one is too good or too bad to qualify for salvation.

TAKE HEART

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Are you worried about something? Is there a burden upon your spirit? As long as you are in this world there will be things poking you; there will be things disappointing you.

When we are troubled, we cannot be sensitive to the Spirit of God. You need a free spirit to pray. You need a free spirit to hear from God. You cannot hear from God when your spirit is troubled. If you pray at such times, you are talking to yourself. Therefore, ask God for a free spirit. Meditation reveals the burden in our spirit. Ask the Lord Jesus, “Take more of me; give me more of You”. When you are meditating this, you will find joy. It comes naturally; it comes spontaneously. Meditation in God’s Word is a visit with Him.

John 16:33 – “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

“In this world, there will be trouble. Cheer up! I have overcome.” This is why Jesus prayed, “I pray your faith will not fail”. This means there will be trouble that will tempt your faith but as a believer, God is aware of what you are going through. It has been prophesied that you will go through them but as one of His followers, it will not impair you but improve you if you allow it to draw you closer to Him.

Flee From the Coming Wrath of God Now that You Can

tb joshua

Prophet T.B. JOSHUA scoanonlineservices@gmail.com

When John the Baptist saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?” (Matthew 3:7). For John the Baptist to have addressed the Pharisees and Sadducees this harsh way indicates that the prophet was ready to pierce them with the true sword of the Spirit and not just to show them only its handle. Many a minister of our days would probably be looking for more disciples, for more tithe payers, and therefore ordinarily adopt milder language than that, choosing more attractive themes, fearing that they will drive their listeners away if they are too personal, and speak too harshly. They let people see only the bright diamonds, silver, or gold on the scabbard, but never let them feel the sharpness of the two-edged blade. They always comfort, and console, and cheer, they are motivational speakers, but never allude to the terrors of the Lord. John the Baptist was bold throughout his ministry as a forerunner of the Lord Jesus Christ, for which he was born. John requests each of us to come up with true evidence that we’re a born again child of God, daily walking with Jesus.

It should be noted that a Pharisee, is a very religious man, one who observes all the details of external worship, and is very careful even about the most trivial matter. He is a firm believer in the resurrection, in angels and spirits, and in all that was written in the Book of the Law of Moses, and also in all the traditions of his father. He is a man consumed with external righteousness, a ritualist of the first order, who feels that, if there was a righteous man in the world, he certainly would be that person. He must have been greatly taken aback when John talked to him about the wrath of God and told him that that wrath was as much for him as for others. No self-righteousness would screen anyone from the anger of God against injustice, lawlessness, idolatry, and all forms of transgression except we “flee from the coming wrath of God.”

On the other hand, we have the Sadducee who was equally taken aback by John’s stern language. A Sadducee is also a religious man, but he combines with his religion greater thoughtfulness than the Pharisee does. He does not believe in traditions, he is too broadminded to care about the little details and externals of religion. He observes the Law of Moses, but he clings rather to the letter of it rather than to its spirit, and he does not accept all that is revealed, for he denies that there is such a thing as an angel, a spirit or a resurrection. He is a man of liberal ideas, fully abreast of the age. He professes to be a Hebrew of the Hebrews but yet, at the same time, the yoke of religion rests very lightly upon his shoulders. He is not irreligious but here is John the Baptist talking to him, as well as to the Pharisee, about “the coming wrath for which everyone must flee.”

Fleeing from the coming wrath of God now that we still can is what Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), has as the “Year of Humility” coming upon humanity. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31). It is not just a prophecy anymore but that it has come. In God’s order of time a year may run for a thousand years our own, or one year our own a thousand years of God’s acts could take place. A “Year of Humility” is just a description and God determines its actual length, breadth, width and overall impact; but the prophet said that “everyone will be humbled to the core” Hence let us think of the danger which overtakes all men who do not flee from it. There is a wrath of God, which remains on every ungodly man. Whether we like that truth or not it is written, “God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses His wrath every day” (Psalm 7:11) and, also, “Whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son” (John 3:18). Yet again, “Whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him” (John 3:36).

John the Baptist said to the Pharisees and Sadducees, “Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?” What our prophet is telling us is that we cannot bear nor endure God’s wrath but we must flee from it. What does this mean? How do we flee from the coming wrath? Yes, we must escape. If we remain where we are now, we will certainly perish because we are living in the City of Destruction, a Condemned City which is about to be overwhelmed with the fiery flood of “the coming wrath.” We must be desperate to escape immediately from it before judgment is executed on the place and on everyone who is in it. John the Baptist said that there is no going to Heaven by following the road leading to Hell Avenue therefore there must be a turn back, repentance. Note how John puts it; “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance” (Matthew 3:8). The evidence of true repentance is a new life in Christ Jesus.

Covid-19 has already humbled the entire world, infecting millions, will eventually also kill in millions, creating joblessness and economic pandemic in its waves. But that’s not what John the Baptist is telling us because Jesus tells us whom to fear more. In (Matthew 10:28) Jesus said, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which can destroy both soul and body in hell”. Therefore the humility will come in multiple dimension except we truly bear fruit of repentance.<a href=”https://www.websquash.com”>Get SEO Backlinks</a>

Already we are amazed, not just about the prophecies coming out of SCOAN and their fulfilments, but much more about their corresponding dynamic step in Faith reaching out to nations for healing and deliverance. Jesus is thus being greatly honoured whilst science and humanity are being humbled. The “Distance not a Barrier to the Move of God” by SCOAN is beyond academic research and human wisdom which mustn’t be taken lightly. In the new normal, where everyone is humbled in a facemask, social distancing or kept in isolation centres we look to Jesus to set us free. This is where Prophet TB Joshua and his team will continue to provide a spiritual lead and guidance as God will direct them. Emmanuel

THE SERMON OF YOUR LIFE

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV

“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13)

When people look at your life, what do they take note of? Is it your appearance, your education, your talent or your inner virtue? Is it the colour of your skin or the content of your character? As a believer in Jesus Christ, no matter your situation, the way you react, the way you handle it matters a lot because the world is watching you. Among them are your friends, your relations, and those who do not share the same faith with you. They are watching to see the outcome of your faith.

Remember your life preaches a louder sermon than your mouth. Just like Peter and John who were unschooled, ordinary men, by the way you live your life, let people take note that you have been with the Healer, the Redeemer, the Comforter, the Deliverer – the name above all names – Jesus Christ!

Church Reopening After Covid-19

Coronavirus, tb joshua, scoan, faith healing

Coronavirus

The unfortunate interference of COVID-19 into public life has effectively shifted all public conversations around COVID-19. It has affected the way people gather to worship in mega Churches like the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN. Hence it is time to start thinking about what will happen when we reopen the church, as announced by state governors, even when COVID-19 is still circulating. We’re not heading back to the way things used to be rather it is going to be a new chapter after what we’ve learned from the pandemic. Nevertheless, we’re so comfortable with the leadership in SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, where the Bishop, Prophet TB Joshua has said he is waiting for a divine order in reopening, when to reopen, how to reopen, how to meet government-set COVID-19 protocol and how to minister to people’s need.

The Church of Christ will continue to render unto Ceaser the things of Ceaser’s and to God the things that belong to God. Observing the regulations set out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) will be built into the reopening arrangement, with its extra demand on Church administration. There are no two authorities in this realm but from the beginning, it is the NCDC that seems not to accept that the Church has any authority. It seemingly believes it may close down worship places without formal notice or dialogue simply because it has a large portion of the social media. Today many citizens of different societies believe in God, and by extension believe their religious leaders, more than their governments. There is a good story in (Matthew 17:24-27) when the people of Capernaum came up to Jesus asking for his tax. They came to Peter, and said, “Doth not your master pay tribute?” Peter answered, “Yes”. Peter went to Jesus and Jesus said to Peter, “… go thou to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee”. This is what God will do in SCOAN. Even the tap water at the entrance of SCOAN premises will clean people of their entire ailment by the special grace of God. We only have to deflate people’s heightened expectations, making them work more on their faith and holiness to see Jesus the Healer.

As Prophet TB Joshua prepares his team for a harvest of souls, this fearful pandemic era, we believe that God shall guide him on what is more essential and what is less essential in canonical worship. If there was any way to advise the government or its agencies like NCDC, it is that government must work for and with her people rather than simply arresting and condemning perceived COVID-19 offenders. The government must work with their institutions and the Church of Christ, not in a political setting but as God’s resource centres for the respective nation. The Church, especially SCOAN, is doing great for the public, praying for them and rehabilitating them as needed. Emmanuel.

The Battle isn’t Against Fellow Human Beings

scoan, tb Joshua

Our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms, (Ephesians 6:12). It is a continuous battle for every Christian, day and night, but the battle is rather with the perception of our circumstance and the material world. The circumstance shouldn’t be the focus, COVID-19 isn’t the focus. Apostle Paul says we need to be strong beyond ourselves. We’ll need God’s strength for the conflict. It means that as Christians we are soldiers at war just like a regular soldier in the battlefield.

In that daily encounter we find Proverbs 3:5-6 saying, “Trust in the LORD with all thy heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”. The divine intervention is needed against the unseen enemy described as a roaring lion seeking who it may devour. But again Paul in Romans (8:38-39) tells us that “. . . neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

Case after case of events Jesus, the King of kings, demonstrated His authority over disease, nature, demons, sin, over space and time, and authority over death. Jesus did everything to ensure our salvation and freedom from principalities and power according to Colossians (2:13-17). Whereas we’d been dead in sins and uncircumcised flesh, but Jesus has quickened us together with Himself. He has forgiven all our trespasses by taking them out of the way, nailing them to His cross. Jesus destroyed the principalities and powers, triumphing over them and He sets us free from tradition and culture.

This is where Prophet TB Joshua and his team in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, becomes relevant. Their mission is to evangelize the world on Jesus’ teaching and His Word, making everyone to have the right perception irrespective of circumstances. They teach that some seemingly unfriendly circumstances may be to draw people nearer to God. Therefore a circumstance like COVID-19 pandemic shouldn’t constitute the real enemy but our perception. This, for example, the brethren in SCOAN are demonstrating to the entire world in multiple ways using “Distance not a Barrier to the Move of God” and praying for people. We recall that in (Matthew 8) a centurion came to Jesus on behalf of his paralyzed servant. The emphasis in that story is on the power of the Word of the Lord that goes to any distance with equal power, that by Jesus’ command the sick were healed. Another lesson is the faith of the centurion, a gentile. In particular, communities that can place their trust and faith in Jesus Christ’s healing power like this centurion (Matthew 8:8) should link its entire people in their isolation centres, in a corporate faith, to SCOAN for Jesus’ healing. Jesus heals effectually and permanently. A vaccine, medicine, food, exercise can be used to treat but its God that heals ultimately.

The word of Naaman’s maid in 2 Kings Chapter 5 is very relevant here. The young Israelite taking forcefully to serve as a maid in Syria knew her God and said to her mistress, “. . . Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! For he would recover him of his leprosy” (v.3). The maid’s perceived incarceration didn’t deter her from recommending the God of Israel to her captors and masters. Just as when Joshua stood before the angel of the Lord in a filthy garment, (Zechariah 3:3), the young maid knew that her master was in a filthy garment of leprosy. It means Naaman was covered in iniquity that needed to be changed. We all wear a spiritual garment which is not visible and can either be clean or unclean. The garment speaks or describes a lot about who we are in the spirit realm. When our spiritual garment is filthy, it means our spirit in the spiritual realm is polluted or defiled due to sin. Also, the enemy can put a filthy garment upon one’s life to destroy the spiritual and the person, preventing the spiritual ability to achieve or fulfil preordained destiny. Covid-19 is currently the global filthy garment the devil is distributing around. Nobody needs to accept this COVID-19 garment nor wear it.

By the special grace of God in Jesus Christ, our generation also has a prophet in SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, not only to help us deal with our infirmities or help to remove filthy garments but also to help us see God the right way. The Holy Spirit of God shall give the enlightenment and nations shall perceive by the spirit the needed divine guidance. The apostles of Jesus of old knew Jesus and the Holy Ghost. They knew they hadn’t silver nor gold (Acts 3:6) but what they had would make a 40 years old lame man walking and leaping. Those apostles were baptised and filled with the Holy Ghost. Similar prophet TB Joshua knows Jesus and he is filled with the Holy Ghost. Communities and nations approaching the SCOAN should have faith that they will meet Jesus. We stand as the maid who recommended Naaman to Prophet Elisha and Naaman was healed from wearing a filthy garment of leprosy. The battle is essentially our perception in the natural and inability to see and believe the mighty name of Jesus Christ that heals. Jesus is the Saviour and Redeemer of the whole world. He is still healing, delivering, and replacing any filthy garments with heavenly attires if we come to Him. Emmanuel

I LOVE YOU, LORD!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN Emmanuel TV

How many times do you lovingly think about Jesus daily? Many spend so much time thinking about their life partner, friends and possessions. Instead of worshipping God, many worship materials which are of less value. God is Spirit and He created material things.

Many are trying to climb the ladder of success but remember, the first place we are to prosper is in our spiritual life. “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33). One who loves God uses his time to meditate on God’s Word because meditation in God’s Word is a visit with Him.

Job, even in the midst of the calamities of life, took care of the depth of his relationship with God and God took care of the breadth of his success. This means, if you are praying for a great success, you must first of all have a great relationship with God.

Enoch was great because his love for God was great (Genesis 5:24). This means, your great love for God will make you great. Therefore, if you are praying to receive a mighty blessing, you must first of all have a mighty relationship with God. Start loving Jesus and the sky will be your limit!

A RIGHTFUL FOCUS

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN Emmanuel TV

In this world of distraction, it is very easy to get off track and lose focus. We live by sight when we give all our attention to the physical, which is temporary but as believers, we live by faith when we recognise our union with Jesus Christ in the Spirit. What is it that controls your life? Those who are controlled by divine-revelation truth are the people that examine all things in the light of God’s Word. Do you examine your situation in the light of God’s Word? What are you experiencing?

Stop focusing on your situation. Our focus as Christians should be only on what God has to say about our situation, not what our natural circumstances or the socio-economic and political situation in our country have to say. In all situations we should ask the Lord to open the eyes of our faith to see His protecting hand and to open our hearts to His faith, Word and Spirit so that we may understand what His will about our situation is. When you have a rightful focus, every time you act on the Word, something enters your spirit that increases your assurance. Assurance means you can boldly say, ‘I am what God says I am’. So, keep your focus! Identify your Source! (Hebrews 12:2)

The SCOAN is continually on an Ongoing Fight Against Satan

tb joshua, scoan, emmanuel tv

Prophet TB Joshua

The team of prophets, evangelists, singers and even the congregation in the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria, under the leadership of Prophet TB Joshua can be classified generally as a wonderful group of people filled with the Holy Spirit. This is globally one of the best congregations of our time. However, the entire SCOAN team has a unique mission of “Waging a Continually Fight Against Satan”. Whilst most of us don’t like to fight with the devil or avoiding any confrontation with him, probably because of it’s a supernatural and demonic being, SCOAN people do. Unfortunately, Satan is an evil intruder and he comes like a roaring lion looking for you. He does not fight fairly, and he does not wait for an invitation. Prophet TB Joshua says Satan doesn’t hesitate to attack hence we should waste no time in casting all our everyday cares on God the Supreme Being. Even at this COVID-19 pandemic, with lockdown in congregational worship and gathering, SCOAN is unrelenting fighting Satan back whether Satan is close by or at a great distance. They coin it as “Distance is not a barrier for the move of God”. It is an awesome programme to be part of and to follow. Thanks to the Holy Spirit, some technology that assists them and the dedication of the team in SCOAN. As far as the congregation in SCOAN is concerned COVID-19 is a defeated foe and Satan knows it.

On our part, we need to emulate SCOAN and stand up on our two feet and fight Satan back for every battle. The Bible is the perfect tool for recognizing and fighting the demonic attacks, generational curses, and strongholds that come against us. Be it COVID-19, an economic pandemic that will set in as a result of lockdown, job losses, deaths of loved ones, or even because of our weaknesses. It is necessary to recognize Satan’s fingerprints all over the places in our lives. Satan always tries to undermine our relationship with God. But James 4:7 says “…Resist the devil and he will flee from you”. How do we resist such a supernatural roaring lion? Ephesians 6:11-18 is very good to read. It says, “Put on the whole armour of God that we may be able to stand against the wiles (and the cunnings, tricks, intrigues, etcetera) of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. . .”

Every moment, especially in this perilous time, it is necessary to protect ourselves, our friends, and our family from the devil’s attack and overcome Satan with the power of the Holy Spirit. We should by no means give way to him, by indulging any sin or yielding to any temptation, but oppose him, and stand against his wiles, his cunning and his power. We must have unshakable Faith and Trust in God and His Word. What difficulties will not our firm belief in God’s wisdom, power, and goodness get us over? Then be humble under His hand. Casting all your care; personal cares, family cares, cares for the present, and cares for the future, for yourselves, for others, for the church, on God. Only faith can give that steadfastness – faith in Christ, the one Foundation, the Rock on which the Christian’s house is built. We shall not take Satan’s guff anymore. It is in our power to stand up and fight back, in Jesus’ mighty name. Emmanuel

AN OVERCOMER!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

Did you know that no matter how you feel right now, someone wants to be where you are, someone wants to have what you have and someone wants to be like you? You were created to be a vessel for God to use but God cannot use a discouraged servant.

Worry interferes with God’s Spirit in our lives. Despite the temptation to feel discouraged, we must overcome this as Christians. By saying about ourselves what the Bible says about us, we are made overcomers. What does the Bible say about you?

Are you sick? The Bible says in Isaiah 53:5 that by His wounds you are healed.

Are you weak? The Bible says in Psalm 27:1 that your God is the strength of your life.

Are you experiencing failure? The Bible says in Romans 8:37 that you are more than a conqueror through Christ.
Are you trapped? The Bible says in John 8:36 that the Son has set you free.
Are you facing lack? The Bible says in Philippians 4:19 that your God shall supply all your needs.

Words of confession of God’s Word indeed work wonders! When the Word of God prevails in your life, people will see it in your dominion, in the way you talk, in the way you walk. Are you ready to win today? Say to yourself, “I AM AN OVERCOMER!”

THE BEST PLACE YOU CAN EVER BE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

Are you tired of being in the same place, the same town, the same community, the same country? Many think that if they can just change their environment, their life would be better. But did you know that the best place you can ever be is in faith? It was in faith Bartimaeus gained his ability to see. It was in faith Moses’ rod was used to split the Red Sea. It was in faith the sinful woman in Luke 7:36-50 was forgiven and set free.

But the sad thing is that so many people live out their days without ever entering into faith because their lives are centred on how they are doing, how they are feeling and how they are treated. When the Word has not prevailed in our life, we live as common men (1 Cor. 3:3).

The question is: Where do you find faith? Wherever you are, faith is not far from you. We find faith deep within our spirit. When you look beyond your sickness, you will see good health. When you look beyond your hardship, you will see breakthrough. This is a look of faith.

Are you ready to step out of this faithless generation? Then, just like the father of the demon-possessed boy did in Mark 9:23, cry out to Jesus, “I believe, help my unbelief!” and Jesus is ready to help you step into faith.

The Effectual Working of the Power of God in SCOAN

Contact scoanonlineservices@gmail.com for your anointed morning water package

tb joshua, scoan

One of the cardinal ministries of Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and turning any man from being a hater of God into one who loves and obeys God. The things of God are foolishness to the natural man. Turning everyone into a new man who delights in God’s ways, who daily enjoy living and walking with God becomes a ministry. According to the Apostle Paul, there is only one answer to be able to do that. It is the “effectual working” of the power of God. “Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power”, (Ephesians 3:7).

The life of Apostle Paul himself was a testimony of this power of God. Had he been left to himself he would still have been the persecuting and blaspheming Pharisee. Saul turned Apostle Paul, must have heard about the preaching of Christ, the preaching of Stephen and he knew all that Christians claimed. But he hated the good news. He saw nothing in it except blasphemy and to persecute the way of Christ. It’s no surprise today that persecution comes to anyone that tries to preach Christ genuinely. But what eventually happened to this man Saul of Tarsus? Again there is only one answer. He had been made a new man when he met Jesus. He had been regenerated, born again, became a new creation. This was the result of the effectual working of the power of God that we covet for all God’s missions today.

Without the effectual working of the power of God in any ministry no one can make anyone a Christian. A Christian means one who has had a rebirth, a regeneration. It is not the result of our decision only, it is not something that you and I decide to do. It is the effectual working of His power. Paul would never have been a Christian at all were it not for this power. But even after becoming a Christian, he would have been ineffective apart from this same power.

It is this same working power of God that is transforming people and Nations and preached in SCOAN. Prophet TB Joshua has been called into the ministry and given the gifts of the spirit that are requisite to the ministry. This is why he has an understanding of the truth, the power to speak, the power to teach and the power to do miracles. It is the promise of God that, “… you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth”, (Acts 1:8).

Hence every Christian must work together in one unit under this power of God, especially here in the SCOAN. Praying in one accord, waiting on the promise of God’s power to be released on the Church for more exploits becomes our mission. Prophet TB Joshua teaches that we let Jesus Christ form Himself in us. In other words, submitting self absolutely to the Holy Spirit and being led by revelation daily.

Prophet TB Joshua has lived, served, loved and struggled for the church for his entire life. Therefore the challenges facing the Church of Christ in the 21st century should be dear to him to take on a responsibility of guarding the flock and caring for the Church of God (Acts 20:28), the more. The Church has drifted far from the Bible. In fact, Bible illiteracy is a major challenge whereby many people pay lip service to the importance of the Bible. People may not read it, know it or believe it. Others using it to teach may doubt its power. Instead, they live on phrases like “heaven helps those who help themselves”, and on many carnal phrases not found in the Bible. Another challenge is that Christians are disconnected from one another, preferring to run as individual, denominations, and as sects. Whereas Christians ought to be people of presence, connected to God and to one another through the inhabiting, unifying power of the Holy Spirit. The church must position itself as presenters of God’s presence in the world by raising a new generation of Church leaders based on the Word of God and the Spirit of God.

Unfortunately, capitalism has fully infiltrated the Church as another challenge to the extent that “church shopping” and “what I got from the sermon” are things we say without thinking anything of it. People go to Sunday services to “get something.” They choose churches that “fit them” and match their checklist of preferences and their circumstances. Churches are homogeneous, consisting respectively people of like minds. But churches must challenge rather than cater to this mentality. The church is a place where heterogeneous members of a body come together for purposes beyond themselves. It’s an invitation to join Christ in what He is already doing in the world, not an invitation for Christ to affirm our self-actualization. Of course, SCOAN is a peculiar Church whereby many are encouraged to come for special services. Nonetheless improved and healed Christians must return and be more effective in their respective homes and in their local churches as a testimony of their encounter with Jesus. Every challenge facing the Church of Christ is an opportunity for higher anointing in Christ Jesus. Emmanuel.

DON’T TAKE A STEP BACK

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

Do you ever feel as if you are not getting anywhere – whenever you move forward, you find yourself going backwards again? This is because you keep taking steps back when you face obstacles, hindrances and problems, instead of allowing them to move you forward. Timothy experienced the same temptation but Apostle Paul warned him not to take a step back when he was sick, attacked, persecuted or discouraged.

“Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.” (1 Timothy 18-19)

You take a step back when in the face of your situation, you get discouraged and start complaining, ‘Why me?’ Whereas this is the beauty of our journey to eternal life – our challenges. Apostle Paul himself knew what it was like to feel like giving up while facing challenges but he kept on running the straight race with God.

What situation are you facing that is causing you to take a step back? Don’t forget, your challenges are friends to move you forward if they produce a sense of dependence on God.

Egypt – Ethiopia Tension: It Is Time For TB Joshua To Get Involve

The colossal dam that’s being constructed by the Ethiopians has continued to generate tension between them and their Egyptian and Sudanese neighbours. Which many fear could lead to war.

The leadership of Ethiopia says that the dam will offer a critical opportunity to pull millions of her nearly 110 million citizens out of poverty. The project is said to be the centrepiece of Ethiopia’s bid to become Africa’s biggest power exporter.

The dam will be filled from waters from the Blue Nile, but the Egyptians have expressed their concern over the dam’s construction and the filling of the dam with the water from the Nile, arguing that it will reduce its legitimate share of Nile river water access and threaten its water security.

Sudan on their part stands to benefit from the project through access to cheap electricity and reduced flooding, but it has also raised fears over the dam’s operation.

The US President Donald Trump had invited Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia to start negotiations in Washington over the $4.6bn Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), following years of unsuccessful negotiations between the three countries. Unfortunately, they still could not come to a common ground.

Egypt has warned Ethiopia not to start filling the GERD under any circumstances, but the latest information coming out is that Ethiopia has started filling the dam. This move by Ethiopia comes as the latest round of talks between Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia on the contentious dam ended with no agreement.

As the Prophet will say “Let us look beyond our palace for God’s authority. With God, all things are possible!”

Since the world government and their institutions cannot handle this issue, it is time for all parties involved to seek the help of God through the instrumentality of the Prophet T.B Joshua for a lasting solution.

TB Joshua has proven himself time without numbers through his intervention on several conflicts in the African continent and the world.

As of recent, the world was a witness to how God uses the Prophet to intervene as an instrument of peace in the nation of South Sudan.

It is time to invite the Prophet of God in the peace negotiation through the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN) concerning the Blue Nile conflicts.

Voice of wisdom to the Egyptians, Sudanese and the Ethiopians.

Don’t fall for the evil agenda from the outsiders to cause you to fight amongst yourself. Be wise!

This battle is all about African pride and prosperity. And I don’t think anyone of you is against the prosperity of the other.

War will not benefit anyone. Don’t make yourself to be used by the outsiders to divide the continent and put you all against each other. Learn from your History!

Laying down your ego for the sake of peace is not diminishing. Restraint in the face of provocation only shows your level of maturity.

This is a simple issue that can be handled by God.

Africa is a Mother of peace and prosperity. Not crisis and poverty. Come together as brothers, learn to compromise and see how you can be a solution and of help to each other. Let Love Lead!

CHRIST IN OUR HEART

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

As you trust in Jesus, He will make His home in your heart (Ephesians 3:17). We are made to be like Jesus in our heart. Faith is of man’s heart because only faith pleases Him. The Word is our contact with God; it is His contact with us. It is the Word dwelling in you which is equivalent to Christ personally being in you. This means, Christ and His Word are one. If you know Christ and His Word are one, you bring Christ on the scene by making His Word a part of you.

Therefore, it is the Word that builds Christ’s nature into an individual – kindness, goodness, self-control, obedience, just name it – the fruits of the Spirit. As the Word dominates, rules and sanctifies our spirit nature, Jesus is building Himself into us and making Himself a part of us.

Remember, faith is perfected by our acting on the Word. This is the secret. For faith comes through hearing the Word of God. You cannot obey that Word when the Word has not dominated, ruled and lived in your heart. So today, open your heart to God’s Word, faith and Spirit so that He can make His home in your heart.

Secret Deeds Determine How We Use the Name of Jesus in the Open

In one of his many teachings, repeatedly broadcast on Emmanuel.tv, Prophet TB Joshua said, “What we do privately in secret would determine what we could achieve in the name of Jesus in the open”. This statement has a profound impression on many viewers, especially those wondering why their own, “Be Healed in the Name of Jesus”, has not produced the expected effect. What we do privately and secretly could hold the key to whether or not we can invoke the mighty name of Jesus Christ in our favour. What’s done in darkness will come to light as success or failure. Instead of flying from one planet to another we may keep crawling and struggling from a single point to another. The common testimony remains, “I am trying to follow Jesus but I am failing. I believe, help my unbelief.”

The unfolding events around us and in many churches all over the world reveal this reality and why there is unbelief, envy, chaos and feebleness in the Church today. We see our history, our past blunders and mistakes, unforgiving spirits, inability to let go the past, occultism and idolatry, common willful sins, all littering the different hearts and consequently in the ministries meant to proclaim Jesus. This truth and operational principle declare and forces all secret things to eventually come to light. The question is not if things will come to the light but when or how? Unfortunately, our weaknesses are coming up to hunt us due to the inability to claim our divine rights in Christ Jesus. In Genesis 4, God says to Cain, “Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” Even Abel’s blood is shouting out this principle for us to understand that a Cain may no longer enjoy fellowship nor power with God.

If the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) must change people, nations and the entire world it has to change the common perception of every class of people in the Church. The symbol of our success must remain “Wearing the Garment of Holiness and be in the fullness of the Holy Spirit”. If for a positive result we must ask “According to His will” we may also ask first that, “What is His will?” That there is power in our mouth, the belief in our heart, released through our mouth by faith? This authority and power, in the name of Jesus, go hand in hand through meditation in His Word. The World must key into the recent prophetic word from Prophet TB Joshua that the “Ministry of Distance is not a Barrier” can be an “International Zoom Crusade for Healing, Deliverance and to Promoting Jesus Christ”.

The carnal world is expecting a scientific code, a sign, or healing and deliverance that would not need it to go through the name of Jesus or faith in Him. The world wants to do without Jesus. Although for us Jesus is our Product, our own Jesus is not for sale in SCOAN. Whilst there is no biblical code that can be invoked in exchange to our faith and holy living in Christ Jesus, the Bible, emphasized by our prophet, teaches on what is more essential to our successful walk with Jesus. The Lord Jesus and His Word must be at the centre of our living because if the Lord doesn’t build the house our work would be in vain. There is also a necessity to be diligent in our work because lazy people always want things but they never get them. Yet everyone has been given talents equal to their abilities and destined functions. If anyone refuses to use given talents such talents may be lost. The prophet has taught extensively too that we should always be willing to give freely in love to gain more; Casting our bread upon the waters to find it in multiples after many days. Those who refuse to give will end up having less and piling up unheard and unanswered prayers. In (1 Kings 3:1) we read, “…He (King Solomon) was wiser than all men…” This wisdom he exercised in many ways beside leadership. King Solomon surpassed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom, (2 Chronicles 9:22). World leaders must learn from the Wisdom of Solomon and come to Jesus, so that daily informed decisions can be taken.

Being in a state of mere physical darkness is probably not what the prophet is referring to. Many Christians create a state of physical darkness during prayer or meditation by closing the eyes so that other senses of the body could be made to work better. The physical sight can be deceiving, tempting us to believe only what we can see with the eyes. Right now the entire world is only seeing the global statistics of COVID-19 and its fearful forecasts. Whereas the spiritual eyes have unlimited meditation power and undistracted by what the environment dictates; the prophet might have seen many days ahead of COVID-19. The visual sense blinds other senses of the body making us believe in only what is visible, but when we blind it our faith should grow and we have improved concentration. Similarly our secret and private life, if spent on meditation on the Word and not what our circumstance suggests, would produce enough faith upon which the power of God can be released rather than a result of some academic exercise. The Lord Jesus is always true to His word when He said that “We would receive whatever we ask for in His name”.

Therefore, despite the prevailing global carnality, diversity in faith, a form of International Crusade by Zoom should be supported as we pray along with Prophet TB Joshua and his team. With prophets the standing of TB Joshua Revelation 1:7, “Behold, He (Jesus) is coming with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him”, becomes so near and a reality. Jesus described what people will be doing at such a time: “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day the Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Emmanuel

JOY BREAKS EVERY BARRIER

Do you compare yourself with others and measure yourself by yourself? Remember, when you are not content and spend much of your time thinking about what you do not have, you may be slipping into unhealthy doubt that can lead you away from God to scepticism, cynicism, then hard-heartedness. These are the walls that stand as barriers between you and the Spirit of the Father.

The wall of Jericho had stopped the Israelites from entering the land whereas Jericho was God’s promise to the Israelites (Joshua 6:4-5). Nevertheless, faith joyfully confesses its victory. As the Israelites joyfully shouted their victory, the wall of Jericho fell. What is the wall in your life that stops you from receiving from God?

Joy is your conquering power (Nehemiah 8:10). “This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). With this joy, break every wall of unhappiness, envy, jealousy, discontentment, offence and pain of the past that stands between you and the Spirit of the Father, in Jesus’ name. As that wall is broken in your life, experience the Bible come alive and the fulfilment of God’s promises.

I am Ready to Pray For COVID-19 Patients in Isolation Centres – TB JOSHUA

Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua has signalled his readiness to virtually offer prayers for COVID-19 patients in isolation centres around the world.

In a special announcement posted to Joshua’s YouTube channel Emmanuel TV, the cleric called on relevant government and medical authorities to “organise those who are in isolation” and “arrange how to connect them to us on Emmanuel TV”.

“The blessing of Jesus is for those who knock and ask,” the announcement began. “In whatever way you support to make this happen, we are a team; we are not doing more than you,” it added.

“Together we shall pray for them. Together we shall be set free from this COVID-19,” the statement continued, quoting the Biblical reference in Luke 4:40 where Jesus healed “all who had various kinds of sickness after the mass prayer.”

“The same anointing that heals one is also able to heal all at the same time,” it concluded, calling on all interested parties to contact the church via their email address info@emmanuel.tv.

Last week, the World Health Organisation reacted to a trending video in which a Cameroonian medical doctor was ‘healed’ from COVID-19 after receiving “interactive prayer” from Joshua’s ministry, acknowledging “spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this”.

His testimony was followed days later by a couple of university lecturers who equally acknowledged receiving healing from the dreaded virus, replete with medical reports before and after prayers from Emmanuel TV.

Since starting its ‘Interactive Prayer’ – in which online prayer is offered via video calls – Joshua’s ministry has prayed for COVID-19 patients from around the world including citizens of USA, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Honduras and Cuba.

MADE RIGHT WITH GOD

Matthew 14:19 “And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.”

Before Jesus fed the multitude, He commanded them first to sit down. This means He wanted their hearts to be right with Him. What is the state of your heart?

Many today fail to understand that we measure our lives not by our situation but by the movements of our hearts. The Bible says, a believer’s heart is the prayer room but for many, their heart is a room of fear, worry and panic. This is because when their finances are down, their faith is down, when their body is sick, their hope is sick. As a child of God, no matter what your situation looks like on the outside, if your heart is right with God, you can have peace. How can your heart be right with God?

With an attitude of repentance and faith we begin to think not of our sin and shortcoming but our righteousness in Christ. It was on the Cross of Calvary that Jesus made us right with God.Matthew 14:19 “And he directed the people to sit down on the grass.

SON OF DAVID, HAVE MERCY ON ME!

The age of miracles has not passed; the Miracle Worker is still alive. The bank of miracles is in Heaven. “However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him’ ”(1 Corinthians 2:9). Therefore, let us not limit God in our prayer because He is rich beyond our dreams.

Knowing quite well how undeserving he was, blind Bartimaeus cried out, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Brethren, all of us would not merit His mercy because our righteousness is like filthy rags before God. We are not healed, blessed and delivered because of the works of righteousness we have done (Ephesians 2:8-9) but in mercy God has called us and healed, delivered and saved us. All we need is God’s mercy and favour. Blind Bartimaeus prayed, “Son of David, have mercy on me” and he testified that God restored his sight. In mercy, you are not excluded.

“Son of David, have mercy on me. Let Your mercy and favour speak for me, in Jesus’ name!” If you mean it, this can be a soul-saving and life-changing prayer. As you say this anointed prayer with all your heart without ceasing, begin to feel the presence of God restoring your testimony – healing, blessing and setting you free and you shall share your testimony to the glory of God, in Jesus’ name!

Jesus Knew What He Would Do

On this occasion, Jesus crossed the Lake of Galilee, and as usual, a great crowd followed him because they had seen signs which He gave in His dealings with the sick. But Jesus went up the hillside and sat down there with His disciples. The Passover, the Jewish festival, was near. So Jesus, raising His eyes and seeing a great crowd on the way towards Him, said to Philip, “Where can we buy food for these people to eat?” Jesus said this to test Philip, for He knew what he was going to do, (John 6:6)

It is soul healing when we realise that Jesus knows everything about us and knows what He will do. But He may choose to test us as He did to Philip. It was expected that Philip would have acknowledged the Sovereignty and Supremacy of the Master over all He created by saying for example, “Sir you know all things, Lord. What shall we do?” Instead, Philip answered him in terms of economic and natural estimates, “It would take nearly a year’s wages to buy enough food for them, even if each one gets only a little.” Fortunately, there was another disciple around, Andrew the brother of Simon Peter. Andrew with some faith said, “A boy here has five loaves of bread and two small fish. But what can that little bit of food do for so many people?” That little faith was enough for Jesus our Lord and Saviour to be brought into the scene, as Prophet TB Joshua always says. Jesus said, “Tell the people to sit down.” The rest is a miracle as the heavens were open and bread and fishes flowed to the hungry and wearied souls. The multitude was feed with great leftovers.

The Bible testifies that Jesus is the eternal God who became a man to sacrifice His life for the sins of the whole world. He was always aware of this and was not expecting Philip to rain bread to feed the multitude but to have some faith in this eternal God. There was never a time Jesus doubted His calling nor was He ever overwhelmed by all the attention He received and allowed Himself to be taken for someone He was not. The prophets that He has called, anointed and using, have some of his divine attributes by His generous grace. They shouldn’t be bothered by worldly pursuits, earthly desires, nor feel overwhelmed by millions of people seeking help from them. Only that it is necessary to remain connected with the One who knows the way through the wilderness of life. The Bible makes it clear that Jesus was always confident of who He was and why He had come to earth. From our first glimpse of Him, until the end of His life, we find Jesus confident of His person and message. Those who trust Jesus should never doubt His ability nor put limits unto what is possible. Instead, we should know that “With God all things are possible, and what is not possible for man is possible for our God”. God can use His servants for our help.

Hence as the entire world is swimming in the wilderness of life, from fear and panic unto economic lockdown and eventually total humility that will leave no stone unturned, it is not too late to come to Jesus for our supplies. In this COVID-19 era, the God who knows what He will do is reshaping the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) to minister to the world in a new way and we must support their effort, in prayers and different kinds. They have newly come up with “Distance is not a barrier” when the Church is in lockdown. People across the globe can benefit from this but by faith.

Everyone should come to seek Jesus like Zacchaeus, a tax collector who lived in the city Jericho at the time of Jesus. He learned that Jesus the prophet was passing through the city and he ran ahead of the crowd and climbed up into a sycamore tree to have a better view of Jesus. It is not enough to secretly install Emmanuel.tv inside your bedroom to watch or to use to attack SCOAN. There is so much to learn about Zacchaeus beyond the fact that he was a short guy who hung out in trees just to see Jesus. Even what’s coming out from the World Health Organisation (WHO) about SCOAN is Zacchaeus and Pharisaical in my own opinion. It is necessary to truly and openly acknowledge Jesus and the fact that “Jesus knows what He will do in the World He has created”. God has the final say. Organisations and nations like the UN, WHO, USA, UK, China, Russia, even Nigeria, and all others must listen to what God has to say. God is Supreme, Omnipotent, Omniscience and Omnipresence.

VIDEO: WHO comments on Medical doctor’s healing of COVID-19 TB Joshua’s church

The World Health Organization (WHO) has responded to a video of a Cameroonian medical doctor Kameni Pierre, who was healed of COVID-19 after prayers from one of Pastor TB Joshua’s recently anointed Prophet through the Church channel, Emmanuel TV in the “Distance is not a Barrie” Program.

WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, WHO Executive Director of Health Emergencies, Dr Michael Ryan and other WHO officials were questioned about the miracle by a Cameroonian journalist Simon Ateba during an interactive media session on Wednesday, July 1.

“On Monday, a very popular pastor in Nigeria, T.B Joshua, released a video of a medical doctor in Cameroon who was said to have been cured of the virus through prayer,” Ateba stated, asking the panellists for their reaction.

In the video he referenced, Dr Kameni Pierre – a gynaecologist and obstetrician – receives prayer after affirming he was positive to coronavirus during an ‘Interactive Prayer Session’ organised by Emmanuel TV.

After ‘vomiting out’ the disease during prayer, the medical doctor held up his medical report days later confirming he was diagnosed negative to COVID-19.

In response, Dr Michael Ryan, the Executive Director of WHO Health Emergencies Programme, affirmed the readiness of WHO to collaborate with bodies like The SCOAN to advance the cause of the war against the deadly virus.

“Certainly, spiritual leadership is very important in times like this,” Ryan stated, praising the role of faith-based organisations in providing accurate information to communities.

Tb Joshua, SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Speaking further, the WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus added that faith and science should “go together”.

“We know many religious leaders who would really advise their followers to follow their faith and at the same time use science. The two do not contradict; they go together… We will call on all religious leaders to be in this fight and save lives,” he stated.

Ghebreyesus had earlier echoed TB Joshua’s prophecy where he declared 2020 “the year of humility” in which “God would humble us with our challenges”.

“If this virus is teaching us anything, it is humility,” the former Ethiopian Minister of Health asserted.

Emmanuel TV’s popular YouTube videos, many of which show similar cases of miraculous healing through prayer, have accumulated over six hundred million views.

HIS MISSION SHOULD BE YOUR MISSION

The Bible describes our lives as a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes (James 4:14). What is your mission for your short time here on earth? Is it to obtain wealth, position or power? Many are guilty of falling into the temptation to use wealth, position, power and prestige to measure their success in life but Jesus Christ was a soul-winner. That is what He was born for, lived for, died for and rose in power for.

In Luke 4:18-19, Jesus stated His mission statement:

“’The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.’”

Here we can see the ministry of Jesus was for the lost and broken-hearted. Thousands of years later, His mission of love is still changing the world. His mission should be your mission! The greatest way to use life is to spend it on something that will outlive it. For instance, love someone more dearly every day.

HINDRANCES TO PRAYER

The dwelling place of God is in the heart. This means what goes on in our hearts determines the kind of relationship we enjoy with God. PSALM 66:18 says, “If I regard sin in my heart, the Lord would not have heard me’. To regard iniquity in the heart means there is some degree of sympathy with sin. A wrong attitude towards sin has caused this deadness of heart. That is why today, we can look upon pain, wrong and injustice unaffected. But as Christians, we should feel worried when we see injustice because when we are affected, our spirit will be stirred (Acts 17:16). Remember sin consists not only in doing what you should not but in failing to do what you should.

To get delivered – our spirit needs to be worried inside when we commit wrong by acknowledging them, admitting them and trusting in Christ’s sacrifice to make us clean and whole within.

QUARANTINED MEDICAL DOCTOR HEALED FROM COVID-19!!!

“As a medical doctor, I would like to advise the nations all over the world – do not panic in the face of this coronavirus. GOD HEALS! He is the same yesterday, today and forever! Move close to anointed men of God – they will pray for you, God will be glorified and this COVID-19 will become a memory!”

Dr Kameni Pierre, a Cameroonian gynaecologist and obstetrician, was in quarantine after being medically confirmed positive to COVID-19. Whilst in isolation at the hospital, he called in to the Emmanuel TV Studios and received prayer during the ‘Distance Is Not A Barrier: Interactive Prayer Session’. The healing power of God touched him right in the hospital ward and Dr Kameni began to uncontrollably vomit poisonous substances and sweat profusely! Just days later, a rejuvenated Dr Kameni went for another test and was confirmed negative to the deadly virus! Be blessed as you watch his faith-building testimony!

“Never a sickness Jesus cannot heal! Never a disease Jesus cannot cure! To God’s power, NOTHING is impossible… Let us run to God to put an end to this crisis and panic that has enveloped the world.” – TB Joshua

WORLD FIGURES CONFIRM TB JOSHUA’S 2020 PROPHECY ON HUMILITY

TB Joshua Sends Prophetic Warning to Us President Donald Trump on “SECURITY ISSUES”

The outbreak of COVID-19 has “brought this nation to its knees,” Dr Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, admitted on Tuesday.

According to Redfield, who spoke during a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing, America was likely going to spend about $7 trillion “because of one little virus.”

“We’ve all done the best that we can do to tackle this virus,” he stated, confessing coronavirus had humbled the entire nation.

Redfield’s words appear to be in correlation with the prophetic declaration of Prophet TB Joshua almost a decade earlier.

On October 16th, 2011, Joshua prophesied about a looming crisis that would bring every nation “on their knees.”

“Everyone will be humbled,” he explained. “There is something God wants to achieve concerning this – God wants to achieve humility to the core. He wants everyone to be on their knees, every nation to be on their knees. After that, the solution will come.”

Three years earlier on December 28th, 2008, Joshua had warned in a ‘long-term’ prophecy about a worldwide ‘economic crisis’ and called on countries who “rely on mineral resources like oil” to “quickly look beyond oil”.

“It’s coming and it’s everywhere. You will be forced to be humble,” he clearly stated, calling on people to prepare for such a time.

On the eve of 2020, Joshua declared it “the year of humility”, stressing that God would “humble us with our challenges”.

“This year will be a year of HUMILITY. This year, the Lord will humble us with our challenges. Challenges can be affliction.… Let us move closer to God,” he stated on December 28th, 2019 after an extensive time of prayer at an undisclosed ‘prayer mountain’.

Last month, the Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus equally echoed TB Joshua’s prophecy, stating that the coronavirus outbreak pandemic is teaching the world humility.

“If this virus is teaching us anything, it’s humility. Time for humility. For all the economic, military, and technological might of nations, we have been humbled by this exceedingly small microbe,” the former Ethiopian Minister of Health said, whilst addressing the World Health Assembly.

Similarly, USA Chief Justice John Roberts told graduating seniors at his son’s high school last month that the coronavirus has “pierced our illusion of certainty and control” and turned the world upside down.

“Humility. The pandemic should teach us at least that,” Roberts said in a seven-minute video message posted on the website of the Westminster School in Simsbury, Connecticut, where his son, Jack, is a senior.

In the first week of May whilst delivering a message titled ‘Get Ready for Life After COVID-19 Lockdown’, Joshua had prophesied his words would soon “become a point of reference”.

“By the ending of June to the first week of July, this will begin to become a point of reference: ‘This man said this; that man said it’ – but it is God that said it,” he stated.

Supporters of the cleric on Facebook were quick to point out the timing of these statements from Redfield, Ghebreyesus and Roberts coincided with the specific dates he mentioned.

A video recounting their statements was published to the YouTube channel of Emmanuel TV, which has nearly 1.7 million subscribers and 600 million views.

Go into the Field and Work for Christ

Working in the field implies that the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, is going to the real natural environment rather than in a theoretical way, or controlled pulpit conditions for evangelism. In this era, many have taken to the internet hoping to promote the gospel of Christ or to promote self and their ministries. For instance, in SCOAN the prayer line service, the work being done by Emmanuel.tv and Partners, conducting National and International Crusades, going from home to home giving and preaching, living out the spirit-filled Christ-like life amongst the population, are some examples indicating that TB Joshua Ministries are working on the field. Every Christian ought to get out to the field and work because that’s where the work is and the harvest is becoming more plentiful but field workers are few. According to (Jeremiah 6:16) we must ask for the old paths, the good way, and walk therein, and we shall find rest for our souls and the job would seem very light.

The numerous problems confronting the church have only recently been exacerbated by COVID-19 pandemic which seems to send people away from church congregations to grow the home churches and the advent of private internet ministries. The internet could easily be polluted by messages from self-serving ministries. Apostle John in (1 John 2:19) describes erring ministries as “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us”. Whereas God may also be speaking to the need to increase the ministry, to improve the interpersonal living and caring for one another, and preparing everyone for the coming Jesus the Lord of Host. Any ministry practising envy, abuse of other ministries, attack on public officials or church leaders, is not representing Christ and they are own self mission. The Holy Spirit has the power to regulate and humble every ministry that goes contrary.

For example, a certain disciple of Jesus named Ananias was in Damascus at a time Jesus needed him to restore Saul of Tarsus. The Lord Jesus told him in a vision to arise, and go into the street which was called straight, and to enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus. Saul who later was also called Paul had encountered the Lord Jesus whilst on his way with authority from Jerusalem to come for more persecution of the church in Damascus. Jesus had made Saul a chosen vessel unto Himself, to bear His name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel but Ananias must go out to heal and anoint this new apostle Paul. The detailed story is in Acts 9: 10-18. This is a clear example of fieldwork, but we must wait for a call, empowerment and instructions from God.

All believers constitute the body of Christ, and members in particular, (1 Corinthians 22:27). What we see in SCOAN, is not just the demonstration of the power of Jesus but also the unity of the Church. That through faith in Christ Jesus prayer can go out from a messenger of God from Ikotun Egbe Lagos Nigeria to any part of the planet and heal, deliver and set free is describing the unity in the working of this Jesus and His Church. The Lord Jesus is allowing this, “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ”, (Ephesians 4:12). God is willingly showing unto this generation some of His divine attributes and promises to the saints. Therefore in Christ Jesus is the anchor of our soul, that is both sure and steadfast, and which shall hold us securely. This Jesus is our High Priest forever and ever after the order of Melchisedec. Emmanuel

YOUR TROUBLE – A PROMOTION!

Many Christians worry, cry, complain and murmur every day about their situation because their lives are centred on how they are doing, how they are feeling and how they are treated. Little do they consider that it is not about us; it’s all about Jesus – the One who walks beside us, daily encouraging us to see us through whatever life brings. Let us not forget the Saviour’s Words in John 16:33: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”. In this world, you will have trials – cheer up. Whatever you are going through, it is very hard to call it a friend but in actual sense, it is a friend because it is a means to draw you closer to God. Troubles are to teach us to be consistent and persistent in prayer.

Life is all about choices and how we respond to every situation. The only way Christian character grows is by facing and dealing with problems and difficulties, not by running from the very things that will bring strength to our lives and promote us. So as a Christian, instead of quitting, stay put and get used to the situation in order to obtain spiritual maturity. Spiritual growth is a function of obedience to God just as physical growth is a function of time and intellectual growth is a function of learning. The trials and difficult circumstances we face are for our obedience.

SCOAN Leading the Campaign of Hope for a Troubled World

God desires that every human being lives as God commands to receive His gift of salvation to become a part of His family and Kingdom. This vision is and should be, the World Order for all God’s children, according to (1 John 2:1-11). In the world we live in today, we have two groups of people living together, namely, the children of obedience and the children of disobedience. Apostle John was clear in his mind when he said and encouraged us to sin not. He also says that if any man sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous and the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. If we obey Him we shall be healed because we’d have internal life.

Anyone who believes and keeps this commandment, of faith in the atoning power in the name of Jesus Christ and walk daily in it, is a child of Light, the obedient God’s child. All others, no matter how morally good, are children of darkness and the disobedient children. The Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, is motivated by this and has set for itself, through its obedience to the Word of God, the task of making sure that everyone understands this message of Jesus, to obey it, and to daily walk in it.

Jesus has said that we shouldn’t worry and fret over our physical needs and challenges but to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). This, then, should be the priority of every Christian; to pursue God’s Kingdom through living as He commands. This pursuit leads to a life of great meaning and purpose, free from fear, filled with personal enrichment, one with absolute faith in a future that is wonderful beyond anything we can imagine. As we enter into the period of humility, prophesied by Prophet TB Joshua, the whole world we presently know is filled with chaos and trouble, different levels of inequalities and discriminations, causing panic, anxieties, pains, or sleepless nights. But children of obedience ought to know the Rock on which they stand, the Anchor holding their sailing ship that is being tossed about by unrelenting storming winds.

The World governments in its wisdom and desperation, following the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, for example, shut down national and global economies, locked down states, communities, and including Churches. The consequences of such a panicking action, not driven by vision, is the creation of bigger problems for the entire world than caused by COVID-19. The campaign from SCOAN, led by its Bishop, Prophet TB Joshua, is the “Fear Not” approach but trusting and holding on to God. Because God is still on the throne and expecting Presidents and Heads of governments to listen and obey instructions from above sent through His holy prophets. If in future individuals or nations relate amongst themselves mostly by internet connections, staff working from home, large Church congregations are denied, the expected friendly brotherly interactions and economic recovery may not receive a good outcome. It is true according to SCOAN that distance is not a barrier for the move of God but we cannot push aside the effect of intimate interpersonal interactions, bilateral relationships between nations, national and international crusades, the meeting together of thousands of people praying in one accord.

God gives His prophets the wisdom of the prudent to understand His way. But there is a way which seems right unto a man (of science), but the end thereof may be the ways of many deaths (Proverbs 14: 8-12).

Therefore, and although we are praying for nations and individuals in various homes and congregations, there is still a need to better engage God’s prophets for God intervention in public affairs like COVID-19, growing world unrest and insecurity, the need for a more scientific breakthrough, combating feminine and displaced populations, etc. It is not cowardice or laziness doing so but the actual recognition of the sovereign God who promised to be with us every step of the way, even to the end of the age. Failing to recognize the supremacy and the unique position of the King of kings in public life can only lead to more sins and more painful consequences. God desires to indeed bless the world He creates, enlarge every coast, and remove every pain and evil from further circulation. Emmanuel.

GIVE GOD TIME

A little boy once thought he could be a hero by helping a chick out of its egg. Holding the cracking egg in his hands, he pulled away at the shell to free the little one inside. His joy turned to tears as the chick fell still into his hands, unable to survive the sudden loss of its shell.

“Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:4).

As it is necessary for the chick to be in the egg for a period of time so also your situation is a test to mature you. As a child of God, when things do not go the way we expect – in cases of prolonged uncomfortable situations, e.g. sickness, poverty and the like, one seems to be tempted to doubt God’s ability or desire to help – “Will I ever come out of this situation?”

As Christians, what you are experiencing right now will soon be a memory; it will be part of your history. Your future is being fashioned at this time. Therefore, persevere – trust God as you keep His Words in your mind, your mouth and in every conversation because the Word of God is full of promises for every matter and His Word will never return empty (Isaiah 55:11).

Your perseverance will surely bear much fruit – that is the beauty of our journey. Give God time; the results are working themselves out slowly but surely, in Jesus’ name!

The SCOAN After Covid-19

The Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, is engaged in the mission whereby Jesus is making all things new in the life of individuals. It is a mission that is changing lives and transforming nations and the entire globe through the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Prophet TB Joshua leads in this holy mission as the hungry are fed, water for the thirsty, and deliverance for those in the dark world, and giving everyone the vision of the God who cares about their soul and their vocation. In this COVID-19 pandemic era, people still need Jesus more than ever. They need a complete Jesus, not an incomplete one.

Seemingly COVID-19 crisis has impacted significantly on the Church including on SCOAN and its way of service and worship. The crisis has attempted to change the Church as we know it. SCOAN has become a very big family, consisting of visitors from all over the world and regular worshippers, it is one of the megachurches, holding services lasting 6 or more hours at a seating. Hence, if this crisis won’t seemingly change the church as we know it, or put an end to those who seek refuge in this church, or destroy the megachurch, how will it potentially change or affect the church? We can only continue to pray and wait on God the Author and Finisher of our Faith.

In the first place, Prophet TB Joshua has prophesied a time like this over a long period. Therefore it hasn’t come on the Church unaware. We shall join him, praying for more revelation of how the pandemic would end. From science, there are just two options. These are namely, total eradication of COVID-19 and return to the old normal or living with COVID-19 with medication or vaccine and return to a new normal. We shall assume that the Church will be living and operating in a new normal and hence prepare for that. The Church of Christ is built to function in all conditions. In Philippians 4:12 Apostle Paul said, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or want”. Therefore it is our various governments, everywhere in the world, that have refused to carry the Church along in their search for solutions. Without the Church of Christ, the world will be living in total darkness.

SCOAN is under the jurisdiction of the Lagos State Government of Nigeria where worship centres are still locked down. Lagos State is the epic centre of COVID-19 in Nigeria as at present time, with the highest numbers of infections and deaths. Nevertheless, even in Nigeria, there are states where reopening and re-emergence of life are taking place. Some people are going back to work, buying in the markets, and even gathering together with the church. All of them are doing so with new policies and procedures that seek to protect each other from contracting the virus. This is the new normal era.

For those of us with a primary interest in the Church, and especially the SCOAN, the impact of COVID-19 can be viewed in the short-term and the long-term approach. The short-term being from now to sometime in 2021 whilst the long-term starts thereafter. Covid-19 is going to have its waves and probably repeat cycles, within the short-term period. There is already a disruption to our normal way of doing things in SCOAN, despite the prior existence of Emmanuel.tv that has become so valuable.

Over the last three months our world, nation, economy, communities, churches, and our lives have been completely disrupted. How we were living before mid-March came to a complete halt. SCOAN was attending to the physical and spiritual needs of people from all backgrounds hitherto. In the short-term, it is hoped that regular prayer line service, in front of the Church in line with COVID-19 rules, maybe conducted and people could be prayed for without touching them. All of us must join our faith together with our prophet and his team on how the ministry is conducted and even the evangelism mission Jesus has graciously given us. The church must be part of the rebuilding of our communities and continue to seek help for the hurting and broken in hearts, the vulnerable and marginalized people of the world. Emmanuel!!!

CHALLENGES ARE TESTS TO MATURE US!

It is impossible to live without challenges. How do these challenges relate to our Christian life? That you have challenges doesn’t mean that you are not a Christian! Challenges determine where you are spiritually. They reveal the true condition or position of man’s heart. A true Christian is tested by his ability to face difficult circumstances. As a child of God, your situation is not to impair you but to make you stronger. Your response when you are tested, provoked and tried determines your future.

Hebrews 5:1-8 – Though Jesus was a Son of God, He learned obedience by the things He suffered. He went through agony, anguish and physical pain but He submitted to the revealing Word of God. This means, spiritual growth is a function of obedience to the will of God.

Jesus learned obedience by the things He suffered. We learn obedience by the difficulties and challenges we face today. Challenges are tests to mature us so your response to the challenge of today determines what you will become tomorrow.

T.B. Joshua: Beauty of holiness, radiance of love

It is never a simple task to dissect a global spiritual personality such as Prophet T.B Joshua. You need to be in a higher etereal realm or be graciously given the grace to do so.

TB Joshua as fondly called is a prophet of God with uncommon Christian lifestyles. Such a being cannot but generate some controversies. By his divine gift and endowment, he operates on a higher pedestal with an incomprehensible yawning spiritual gap between him and his generation.

He is the known but unfathomable divine envoy on earth. He has remained an enigma, a gigantic puzzle, a bundle of God’s inexorable and inexplicable mysteries to which mankind must simply and humbly accept their limitations.

The most persecuted, the most vilified, the most grossly misrepresented and disdainfully maligned in his country of birth, TB Joshua has continued to pray for his adversaries like his Master, Jesus Christ: ‘Father, forgive them for they know not what they do’.

In today’s firmament when Christianity has become a mockery in many quarters, TB Joshua remains a shining light in darkness and has clearly shown to the world that “by their fruits you shall know them”!

One incontrovertible great fact is that The fate of TBJoshua cannot be different from his divine predecessors especially His Master Jesus Christ who out of spiritual blindness, rigidity, ignorance, crude envy, fear and unbridled jealousy was maliciously crucified in the most excruciating and agonizing manner by the same people believed to be most respectable religious authority of his time. What an irony!

TB Joshua must necessarily drink of that cup and joyfully too because of the grace of his Father.

There is something extraordinarily peculiar to TB Joshua. This is the UNCONDITIONAL LOVE he radiates like the soothing moonshine in the sky. He cannot be offended. As a human being I doubt if he can allow any offence with him for five minutes.

It is love without discrimination and this is reflected in his joyful superlative giving, charity, activities and humanitarian and selfless services.

Unlike some other churches where you will be turned back if not in compliance with their physical and religious appearance standard, TB Joshua is home to everyone. Whether you are a Muslim, pagan, occult groups, lesbian, gay, idol worshippers just name any, TB Joshua is a friend to all.

“ I am interested in the salvation of their souls. Jesus does not hate sinners what he hates is sin. If Jesus came for the salvation of sinners who am I not to welcome sinners in love and bring them to knowing Jesus Christ my Master and our saviour”? He would enthusiastically appear publicly with them like one who has just found a new lover. I could remember when a group of herdsmen in their rusticity visited him. He welcomed them like VIP, sat along with them and even collected their traditional caravan gourd which they all usually put their mouths in to drink water to also use the same thing to drink the water inside with them!

Because of human spiritual banality and pedestrianism, TB Joshua has oftentimes been maligned with outright chimerical tales and concocted lies by his superficial observers who could not decipher the Spirit of the Father working in him.

“I must necessarily experience all these. Who would I then resemble? Rejoice because every temptation and every situation is meant to draw you closer to God if you have been called by Him and maintain your focus, He would continue to strengthen you because God would never forsake His own”.

To talk of TB Joshua’s God’s endowed towering spiritual power in him is like dipping a cup into the sea to fetch water. The power radiates as he walks or talks with countless diverse healings and miracles beyond human imagination. There was one occasion when armed robbers waving fiery guns and shooting sporadically were operating in the upper street during the church service. The suffocating miasma of their operations extended to the church area. In holy anger TB Joshua fiercely came out of the service to confront them and collected their guns from them! The armed robbers were reduced to vegetables by the TBJoshua’s superb Holy Spirit power. It is not surprising to find Ogbonis, witch doctors, idol worshippers, psychists, Hindus, just name them – all forms of esoteric practitioners, confessing their sins and surrendering their satanic instruments by the fire of Holy Spirit engulfing them and accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior in Synagogue Church Of All Nations SCOAN through the God’s nature in TB Joshua.

Nothing is done in secret in SCOAN. Everything is open and transparent. It is not a place of spiritual manipulation. Any wonder then that foreigners are trooping into SCOAN in droves and the church has to be overwhelmingly checkmating requests of intending pligrims and yet countless others will find their ways to Nigeria through back doors thus causing a lot of embarrassment in the enviroment beyond the church expectations.

“It is not everybody that can come here” says the Man of God. “Only those God calls will come here”.

TB Joshua is humility personified. Ordinarily he is very shy. He is indeed the biblical broken vessel in the hands of God.

TB Joshua has made the physiognomy of Christianity real and Jesus and His mission on earth clearer with discernible understanding of that narrow path to the Luminous Heights.

One of the most shockingly admirable things in TB Joshua’s life is his in-depth knowledge of Bible and the words of God. Here is a person who never went to theological school, mentored by anyone or really educated in the real western sense. Yet he is a teacher of teachers with strikingly penetrating power into your spirit. He opens your eyes and hearts at every teaching with profound spiritual transformation for eternal yearnings in the listeners! It is usually a moment of spiritual rediscovery. You cannot ignore his messages. Simple, nonoratorical or colourfully/attractively presented, it carries fire and power with uncommon insight and revelations.

You cannot be going to SCOAN and be engaging in sinful lives. TB Joshua will see all you are hiding secretly in your house or any immorality you are committing which you think has been successfully covered. He would compromise indiscipline and immorality. He is stern and firm!

I have severally witnessed instances where such members are called out except he doesn’t come across you.

“In this church, you are coming here and you are still living in this sin”? Whatever is saying is confirmed, no quibbling or mincing words as such sinners will immediately fall down crying to Jesus narrating the circumstances that led him or her to it asking for God’s forgiveness. You will be shocked when he exposes all the details of what you did!

SCOAN is not a place for ‘bigmanism’. Whatever you are from outside cannot be carried inside the church. You must be humbled! Have you ever seen where a big man or woman is asked to go and join sanitation group where they do cleaning or what you can regard as menial jobs? Yes, TBJoshua would tell you: ‘go and join them, God will hear your prayers’. In most instances it is like the case of that army General Naman the leper in the Bible who in arrogance felt how could he go and wash in a particular river directed him to go by the prophet when there were other better rivers he could go. But the grace of God saved him by listening to his servant and eventually was made whole as he washed himself in the very river.

One crucial lesson you learn from TB Joshua regarding prayers and fastings is that when they are not done on the precious arms of the Holy Spirit it is a balderdash. “ You can pray and preach wonderfully. Once you have not been adopted by Holy Spirit, people may hear you and even clap for you but God will not hear you. You can call yourself born again but as long as you are not adopted by Holy Spirit you are simply wasting your time”.

He has made worshippers in his church realise that your faith must be genuine, your meditation in God’s Word and making it the standard practice in their lives as NOT NEGOTIABLE for their Christian lives not be a failure and for them to have rewarding faith. To live in pure love to all your neighbors regardless of their religion or who they are, holding no offence against anyone and be a blessing to others for you are blessed to bless otherd. “O Lord give me love enough not to see the mistakes of others” is one of the prayers

Hear the Prophet:

“God cannot entrust you with His power if you do not have UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. This is because you will begin to use it for the benefits of those you want and then against your enemies. Look at this church, can you see any member of my family holding any positions? It’s God’s church and He knows what to do even when I am no more”!

TB Joshua is not competing with anyone. He has no faculty for looking into the affairs of any other churches or what anyone is doing or saying anywhere. His focus is on God. His only pain is the disunity in the church of Christ.

On several occasions when people from other churches received landmark healings and miracles he won’t allow them to do any Thanksgiving in SCOAN. He would tell them: “go back to your church and do the Thanksgiving there. We are working as a team. It is the prayers you have been praying in your church that also brought you here. Go and remain in your church and be worshipping there”.

That is TB Joshua for you. He is the embodiment of Jesus Christ himself. In SCOAN no soliciting for fundraising, sowing seeds, donations or Thanksgiving. Even payment of tithes or offering is completely voluntary. “Take your tithes or Thanksgiving money to the needy; look for poor pupils to give scholarship; look for the sick and all others you see in hardship to help. When you do that God will hear your prayers”.

Hear him again:

“Have you ever seen me printing envelopes here asking for donations? No! When God truly give you an assignments He would also put in the hearts of those that would assist you on the assignments”.

Today TB Joshua has brought back the early church of the apostles with Christian revival for a better understanding of worshippers to worship God in truth and in Spirit.

Speaking with a spiritual elder who prefers anonymity, he said: “There is no other person like him today in the entire world. It’s usually one at a time. He is on God mission but unfortunately God’s design did not permit many who ought to know from recognizing him. Do you think if he is fully recognized in Nigeria there will be any space in Nigeria for other people in the world to come?

Hear him: “You can see he is not establishing branches like others. He has kept absolutely to God’s directives and agenda and not to human opinions.

“God really loves TB Joshua. Some did not know that it was out of God concern for him to fulfill his mission that his last prophecy on American election did not click. If it had clicked there’s every tendency for some people to turn him to God which will affect him. God has brought him for the rise and fall of many. I only pity those in ignorance of his origin and are using their mouths unconsciously to jeopardize their own eternity”.

THE PERSON GOD CREATED YOU TO BE

“For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose” (Philippians 2:13)

God never created failure. God never created pain.
God never created fear.

Are you ready to be the person God created you to be? At times, our fear, our worries, our troubles seem to paralyse us but Jesus is more than able to release us from them all. Jesus is ready to pick you up and put you back on your feet. He is ready because He wants you to be the person He created you to be. Are you ready?

It is when we throw up our hands to the Lord that His hands have room to work. Ask yourself, “Do God’s hands have room to work in my life?” Remember, Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. How much time do you spend getting your heart in tune for prayer? How much time do you spend meditating on God’s Word? If you want your personality to be taken over by Jesus, if you want to be the person God created you to be, be conscious of Christ’s presence in everything you do because in Him we live, move and have our being.

TB JOSHUA AT 58 – GOD’S GRACE IS ENOUGH FOR HIS PROPHET

Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), is a remarkable man. I think that every one of us who have met him on any occasion is always inspired and challenged by his life. He carries grace, humility, simplicity and love. He was born in Arigidi Akoko, a remote part of the present Ondo State of Nigeria at a time that part of the country was in the Western Region Nigeria. He was to be known, not because he has rich and famous parents, or because of some academic achievement in science, but because of what he has been able to single-handedly achieve in human restoration and reformation through faith in Christ. The average life expectancy in Nigeria (before COVID-19 set in to further reduce it) is between 53 and 54 years. Hence TB Joshua at 58 has lived above the average age of people of his country, despite his arduous missionary work confronted by opposition from multiple directions, visible and invisible. It has only been possible by God’s grace protecting him; Congratulations for a Happy Birthday with all our Best Wishes to you and your lovely family.

At age 58 God might still not have answered all the prayers of Prophet TB Joshua in the way that he might have hoped but we know that God has used him to reach people in many communities, prisons, orphanages, hospitals and many nations. He had laid hands or hugged thousands of people across the globe in the process of ministration, praying and setting them free from the grip and shackles of Satan. God overlooked any limitations of our prophet and invested him with the ability to uplift hearts and encourage people’s spirits. They got up from wheelchairs, threw away walking sticks, the blind seeing, deaf hearing, all saying “Thank You, Jesus, Thank You, Jesus”.

It has been the grace of God upholding the man of God whilst the entire society remains only carnal, saying things they ought not. Unfortunately, there exists amongst the various sects envying, strife, divisions, and many so-called men of God but living and walking as natural men. While some groups say they are of Paul, others say they are of Apollos. But neither is he that plants nor he that waters anything, but God that gives the increase, (1 Corinthians 3:3-7). Prophet TB Joshua has been teaching on Church unity rather than campaigning against others. Though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh and the weapons of our warfare carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Do you look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ’s, even so, are we Christ’s. (2 Corinthians 10:3-7). It is the mighty grace of God that is protecting every true man of God.

The people of God depend on the grace of God. Mother Teresa wrote, “I don’t think there is anyone who needs God’s help and grace as much as I do. Sometimes I feel so helpless and weak. I think that is why God uses me. Because I cannot depend on my strength, I rely on Him twenty-four hours a day. If the day had even more hours, then I would need His help and grace during those as well.” Similarly, Apostle Paul expressed this dependence when he wrote about the thorn in his flesh. Three times he pleaded with the Lord to take it away. But God said to him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”,(2 Corinthians 12:9). His grace is not only amazing, it is “sufficient”. It is enough. Prophet TB Joshua also said that “we need God to sit, to stand, to take each step, etc”. Our prayer is Psalms 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”.

Happy 58th Birthday to Prophet TB Joshua, the man at the Synagogue, Church of All Nations. Emmanuel.

SHINE AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT!

In order to be God’s person, we must seek His attention in everything that we do. Don’t forget that there is darkness everywhere but as children of God, we are not here to get used to the dark but to shine as light. We cannot walk in darkness without a light to show the way – that is the position of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit lightens the Word (John 6:63). Without the Holy Spirit, the Word alone cannot bring Jesus to the scene, cannot transform your situation. The Word will remain inactive, meaningless and oftentimes destructive without the Holy Spirit. Do not let this happen to you. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with His light, to guide your way, words and your thoughts, in Jesus’ name.

There is a Prophet of the Lord in SCOAN

As we celebrate the 58th Birthday of the Man in the Synagogue, Prophet TB Joshua, many of us already know him as a Prophet of the Lord. Today, just as in the days of King Ahab of Israel there are many self-acclaimed prophets in every town. Remember that Jesus Christ is the Forever Prophet and He has appointed some prophets for our time too.

In 2 Chronicles 18, we read a very interesting story about King Ahab and his guests. The king of Judah at that time was Jehoshaphat, very wealthy and greatly respected. Jehoshaphat had made an alliance by marriage with Ahab, and after several years went down to visit Ahab in Samaria. Ahab slaughtered many sheep and cattle to honour Jehoshaphat and those who came with him. He persuaded him to join in an attack against Ramoth Gilead. King Ahab of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Will you go with me to attack Ramoth Gilead?” Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, “I will support you; my army is at your disposal and will support you in battle.” Then Jehoshaphat added, “First seek an oracle from the Lord.” So the king of Israel assembled 400 prophets and asked them, “Should we attack Ramoth Gilead or not?” They said, “Attack! God will hand it over to the king.” But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there not a prophet of the Lord still here that we may ask him?” The king of Israel answered Jehoshaphat, “There is still one man through whom we can seek the Lord’s will. But I despise him because he does not prophesy prosperity for me, but always a disaster. His name is Micaiah son of Imlah. Jehoshaphat said, “The king should not say such things!” The king of Israel summoned an officer and said, “Quickly bring Micaiah son of Imlah”. As it turned out the first 400 prophets were false, prophesying only property, what people want to hear, but prophet Micaiah was a prophet of the Lord.

As of June 12, 2020, the number of self-proclaiming prophets from various Christianity sect alone operating in Lagos State, Nigeria, Africa or globally is unknown but could be in hundreds of thousands. The king Ahab in various State headquarters worldwide raised many of them and paying them. In Daniel chapter 1 we come across Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who built a house for his god, created a King’s College to train his eunuchs, people skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace. Daniel was among them. Every generation needs prophets of the Lord. A prophet is a person who receives a divine message and speaks to other human beings on behalf of a deity. They are called by God to serve God, they are humans like others though may have their unique areas of interest and characteristics. In the order of hierarchy, we have as topmost the God Head (where Jesus belongs), the Holy Angels of God, fallen angels (where Satan is head), the Holy Prophets of the Lord, then the Apostles, etc. We don’t know where to classify the fallen angels since the Holy prophets have power over them and can cast them out. We witness Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN doing this casting out and pulling down the gates of darkness. He does his own in a scale that resembles the days of the early Apostles. People who work close to him are taping in the anointing.

How did King Jehoshaphat of Judah recognise that they needed to hear from a prophet of the Lord after listening to 400 prophets of King Ahab, his in-law? How can we recognise the prophets of the Lord today? Jesus said in Matthew 7:16 that, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?”

We are celebrating TB Joshua because he is a lover of people, a helper to the helpless, a preacher and teacher of the Word, and so on, including the fact that he is a Prophet of the Lord of time. Anyone may wish to study the number of very difficult cases TB Joshua had solved for many individuals, between families, within and between nations. We think that if he had been appointed a national chairman of eg COVID-19, like Joseph who solved a famine for Egypt, or like Daniel who interpreted dreams with solutions, or Elisha who helped a widow overcome her debt, Prophet TB Joshua could solve such national problems. Being a prophet isn’t just future telling or forecasting and predictions that are done in mathematical sciences using models, but hearing from God and telling the public what was heard. Science may be wrong many times because the underlying conditions on which our models are built can change, but the prophets of the Lord are always right. EMMANUEL!!!

THE UNSEEN HAND!!!

God sometimes uses foolish things to confound the wise. For example, an unpleasant situation can serve to keep us for a new level in life. If Joseph had not been in the prison, he would not have met the link that saw him to the throne (Genesis 41:9-39). To the wise, imprisonment is a foolish thing but God used it to accomplish His purpose in the life of Joseph in particular, and the nation of Israel in general. If Hannah had had a baby earlier, she may not have had any reason to stay close to God. The Bible says, she was a woman of prayer (1 Samuel 1:1-17). If the circumstances surrounding the birth of Moses were normal, he may not have had a cause to go to Egypt where he finally became a blessing to his nation, Israel. He would have stayed and grown up with his biological parents and that would have changed the course of history (Exodus 2:1-10).

If Daniel had not been thrown into the lion’s den, he would not have had the opportunity to prove his God; his God would not have been known (Daniel 6:25-27). If Meshach, Shadrach and Abed-Nego had not encountered the great trial in the blazing furnace, their God would not have been a state God (Daniel 3:28-29). If Peter had had the desired catch of fish at the seaside, he may not have encountered Jesus – the Redeemer. His disappointment at the seaside served to move him to a higher level in life – ‘A fisher of men’ (Luke 5:1-11).

What the eye could not see in all these examples was the unseen hand, the divine driver of our fortunes. There is God’s appointed time for everything under the sun – a time to be happy, a time to be sad, a time to grow and a time to die (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8). Take note, there is an unseen hand, an unseen plan of God in the affairs of men. When something happens, whether positive or negative, it would be too soon to despair, complain or jubilate without finding out what God says about it because there is an unseen hand in everything that happens under the sun.

ACTING ON WHAT GOD HAS SPOKEN!

The problem of believing is made simple when we know that it is acting on what God has spoken. The wise man is the doer of the Word. The other hears but does not act upon it. He is a sense knowledge hearer; he is a mental assenter. He responds to reason instead of the Word. If he has faith in anything, it is in man, what man has done, science, works and organisation. We may know the Word. We may be familiar with the original Greek or Hebrew. We may know the history of the Word but that is all wasted energy if we do not live the Word and practise it. If we do not live the Word and practise it, we cannot bring Jesus on the scene.

Prayer is a reality. We are not talking into the air. Here, the name Jesus is always honoured. What a grave danger of deluding ourselves. What a danger if there is no corresponding action! If we say in the name of Jesus without corresponding action, it oftentimes leads to destruction. It is the doer of the Word, the man who practises it, lives it, walks in it, that builds it into his own life. It is the doer of the Word that receives things from God. Idle words may entertain men but they do not reach God.

Ephesians 3:20 – “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Note the word, “do” in this text. We are doers of the Word, but you say, “How can I do it?” It is going to be according to the ability of God that is at work within us. As we begin to do the Word, He begins to do in us and through us (1 John 4:4).

The Wold Should Keep On Watching Emanuel TV

The Emmanuel TV, of the Synagogues Church of All Nations (SCOAN), was launched on March 8, 2007, with the slogan, “Changing Lives, Changing Nations, Changing the World”. Hitherto in the late 1990s the ministry of Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of SCOAN, began to gain international attention especially through video cassettes showing Prophet TB Joshua’s early ministry in miracles and charity. At that time SCOAN was airing its programmes on State Nigerian televisions. But under the instruction of the then President Olusegun Obasanjo (President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999-2007) the Nigeria National Broadcasting Commission banned Ministries showing miracles on TV in 2004. Thereafter SCOAN broadcasts were taken off the air. This created a necessity for the emergence of Emmanuel TV on March 8, 2007. All along, either through the cassettes, state televisions, or now Emmanuel TV, SCOAN has always broadcasts Christian programmes, with the singular mission to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to all mankind.

The purposes of general broadcasting and Christian Programmes broadcasting in particular in our contemporary days are numerous. Otherwise, why would Prophet TB Joshua, right from its inception, keep his Ministry works in cassettes, broadcasting them on paid National TVs and now owning a whole Emmanuel TV with all its huge attendance costs? The need to inform, educate all people about Jesus Christ in these last days implies we leave no stone unturned. In the case of SCOAN and Prophet TB Joshua, the opposition comes from every direction and to counter a few of the people have to see the work in SCOAN openly. Of course, believers also need some inspiration and a positive sense that Jesus is alive and remains the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Also, so many fields in the world are difficult terrains for one-on-one evangelism. The Scriptures are disallowed from entering such societies or from circulation. But Emmanuel TV Channel, in addition to its YouTube Channel, and slogans such as, “Distance Is Not A Barrier”, “Pray Along’ with Prophet T.B. Joshua”, “Touch the Screen”, is reaching every corner of the globe with resulting testimonies.

The SCOAN Chapel in Ikotun Egbe Lagos is a most-visited Christian or religious centre worldwide of our time and Prophet TB Joshua the most renowned living prophet of this generation according to http://www.Ranker.com survey of 250 million votes worldwide. The Emmanuel.TV Channel cannot show all that happens in the Chapel because many of the “Big Time Visitors” choose not to be recorded on tape or come at Nicodemus night time. But one thing everyone should know about Prophet TB Joshua is his humility and ability to keep our secrets. When Prophet TB Joshua is in the spirit and you’re fortunate to sit around him he knows all about you. He knows whether you are a thief, a fornicator, a witch, a liar, a Christian that has been struggling but failing, and he also knows about the way out. This unique hiding characteristic of our prophet makes him stand out from all others. Emmanuel TV is not created to promote him but to expose the work of Satan and promote the Lord Jesus Christ and His coming kingdom. The world needs the Emmanuel TV Channel.

Some Christians had thought that broadcasting the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Radio or Television was the devil’s work. However many ministries, including TB Joshua’s Ministries, have turned that around to mean that a world on fire needs the flames of the Holy Ghost to quench those evil flames and that there is no hiding place for such evil spirits. Emanuel TV Channel is sending some Holy Ghost flames to quench thirsty souls and feed stomachs that are empty with the Living Word. We don’t know what Paul and Silas would say about TB Joshua’s Ministries but they wouldn’t classify him as one preaching another gospel, or building on a different foundation.
