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

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.
Last week, a set of Emmanuel TV Partners in Nigeria and neighboring countries had gathered to receive the new Anointing Water and Sticker. In addition to the faith tools, they also received prayer ministration by Prophet T.B. Joshua over the phone. What transpired during that prayer session, as well as during the picking up of the items, is yet another proof that God’s power knows no barrier of distance or time. Indeed, there were manifestations in various forms as people experienced healing, deliverance and salvation in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Prophet T.B. Joshua had begun with words of encouragement and assurance to the assembled Partners, among whom was a group of visiting pastors and ministers from the Latin American nations of Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, among others: “I want to tell you that God is with you and that no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper! My being here is mightier than when I am there. So, rejoice!”
He then repeatedly prayed for the Holy Spirit to fill the people, even as he broke into a song on the power in the Blood of Jesus Christ. “Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” he declared. Afterwards, the man of God reassured the people: “I’m aware you are there and Jesus Christ too is aware you are there. I want to tell you that you are not there on your own; you are there by the grace of the Holy Ghost. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ.”
Prophet T.B. Joshua also said a prayer of forgiveness with the people: “If there is any sin you have committed, any wrong you have done – Lord Jesus forgives you! Any sin they might have committed, in whatever way – Lord Jesus, forgive them! Lord Jesus – I cover them with the Blood of Jesus!” At this point, many of the people had begun to respond to the potency of the Spirit, with many thrashing on the ground and vomiting the poisonous substances in their system.

As we progress in the calendar year in this New Year 2021, our expectations and hope for a better year become higher because of our faith in Christ Jesus who has called us to follow Him. Moreover, we expect a fresh beginning every day, and a new fellowship opportunity to increase our faith in him , despite that the heaviness of the past year 2020 is real. Many have suffered losses of family and jobs, lack of fellowship in isolation, loss of finances and health, and gave up their dreams in their isolation especially because of covid-19. The fellowship we take for guaranteed in the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), our Arena of Liberty, is becoming a prayer point as we want to be there again. Of course, our God offers hope in our struggle and help at our worst and hardest moments. Hence as we look forward into the unknown future, we can also look into God’s Word and find hope for the unexpected days ahead. In particular, Church reopening in some form has to be considered without delay and the form is what God shall tell our Prophet TB Joshua. The SCOAN has not surrendered either to the noisy mod crowd or to any covid-19, which are only mere challenges as the prophet himself knows, (James 1:2). We thank God for the New Anointing Water and the Ministry of “Distance is Not a Barrier”. This is amazing and may God continually renew His anointing on Prophet TB Joshua for greater leadership. We also notice the dilemma the Church finds itself these challenging days, between the carnal and secular world always looking for condemnation and the lukewarm congregation. The modern Christians the prophets of God have to deal with today is a people accepting the Grace of Jesus but rejecting the Law and the Righteousness of Jesus, or the Jews who accept the Law but rejecting the Saviour.
Jesus reassured His disciples in (John 14:3) when He said, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also”. This is a very weighty and strong hope for the downcast disciples as many are today. It’s a reminder that not only is there a day coming when Jesus will return for His children, but also the promise that He is preparing a heavenly home right now for all those who put their faith in Him for salvation. This gives the believers heart great help and hope as we look toward unexpected circumstances. No matter what comes our way or what struggles we encounter, one day we will reach our heavenly home and there will be no more pain or sorrow there. Therefore we shall not worry, “about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Sufficient for the day is its trouble”, (Matthew 6:34).
It will be recalled however that in places where fellowship, schools, and institutions have reopened responsibility has been placed squarely on the shoulders of participants and other stakeholders. Closing institutions indefinitely is going to be more harmful to the society than its cause, covid-19. On this, we are so comfortable for the preparation of Prophet TB Joshua, both on prophetic ministry and provision of faith materials on the subject matter. Hence we encourage that people must be allowed into SCOAN freely to come and see that the Lord is good just as young prophets and the public need improved faith through challenging times like these. Despite the challenges, we are “anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, we let our requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6).
On this occasion, Prophet TB Joshua can be likened to John the Baptist in many ways. John the Baptist did not mingle himself with the elites in Jerusalem schools but separated himself to become a crying voice in the wilderness waiting on God. He came out preaching repentance and baptism, (Luke 3:1-19). The SCOAN is a Holy Spirit movement requiring all of us to wait for the voice of the Lord and a movement taking Prophet TB Joshua to solitary places to learn and hear from God. We have enough evidence to know that many angels are working in the ministry together with the Holy Spirit. The SCOAN population would not allow any anxiety to creep into their minds and hearts. Prophet TB Joshua taught us that desperation or anxiety is a silent distraction that seems to live everywhere we look. May the Lord Jesus continually bless our prophet and the Church in his charge!
Remember! email@example.com is the only recognized SCOAN email for the online acquisition of the faith tools for 2021
Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, a predominately Gentile area, located some 25 miles north of Bethsaida where Jesus had just healed the blind man, (Mark 8:22-26). Here is where Jesus asked his disciples, saying, “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” They answered, “Some say that thou art John the Baptist, some say Elias; and others say Jeremias or one of the prophets”. Then Jesus asked His disciples, “But whom say ye that I am?” Their spoke man Simon answered and said, “Thou art the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the Living God”, (Matthew 16:13-16). Jesus didn’t ask this question, “Do you have any idea who I am?” to throw His weight around, or because He wasn’t sure of His identity, rather He asked the question to help His disciples come to the right knowledge.
Today our lives continue to be filled with questions, relevant or irrelevant, some will have answers but many others are unanswerable. Some of the questions are very mundane and routine. For example, people may be asking questions such as, “Who is TB Joshua?”, “Is TB Joshua human?”, “Are there angels in SCOAN”, “What food does TB Joshua eat”, “Are these miracles real?” etc. Other questions may be helpful and very relevant, “Can you arrange for me to see TB Joshua please?”, “When does SCOAN have its next prayer line service that I can attend?”, “Will God forgive my many sins?”, “Is it true that Jesus is the Son of God? etc.
Jesus responded to Simon and said unto him, “Blessed art thou, Simon son of Jona, for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven, (Matthew 16:17-19). A correct answer to every question earns a lot of credit points whereas inability to come to the right answers is a failure with all its consequences. Simon got it right and the foundation to build the Church, got a new prophetic name as Peter, the keys to open and to lose, with open access to heaven.
Everyone needs to know whom Jesus is and accept and worship Him based on a true conviction. Even in Jesus’ time, not every voice in that day was lifted against Him. Some people knew Who He was and proclaimed Him openly. For instance, John the Baptist got it right, (John 1:29-34), the Angels got it right, (Luke 2:9-14), the old man Simeon got it right, (Luke 2:25-35), old Mama Anna got it right, (Luke 2:36-38), the dying thief got it right, (Luke 23:42), the Roman Centurion got it right (Mark 15:39), the blind man got it right, (John 9:38), the crowds outside Jerusalem got it right, (John 12:1), and even the demons got it right, (Mark 5:7). What are people saying about Jesus in our day? Or what are you saying about this Jesus, Who is He to you?
The SCOAN Sunday Broadcast began with songs of praise and worship to the Almighty God, the Alpha and Omega. With melodious songs composed by Prophet T.B. Joshua, the Emmanuel TV Choir welcomed the Holy Spirit who knows no barrier of distance or time. On the performance roll call of songs composed by God’s servant were “I Live To Worship”, “Loved By God”, “Flow From You”, “Yes Lord” and “No One Like You”.
Prophet T.B. Joshua began his message by asking viewers to tune their hearts to the heavenly frequency as he cited1 Corinthians 12:1-3,Ephesians 1:16-18, Matthew 15:8, 1 Corinthians 2:7-13andLuke 24:45.
The message focused on the indispensable role of the Holy Ghost in living the victorious Christian life. He asked: “How many of us seek the attention of the Holy Spirit before calling the name Jesus? How many of us seek the attention of the Holy Spirit while counselling, teaching, preaching, praying?” Prophet T.B. Joshua likened the Holy Spirit to the key to a closed door and to light in a dark world. “The Word will remain on our lips without the Holy Spirit,” he said. Putting it in another way, he said: “The Word will remain inactive, meaningless and oftentimes destructive without the Holy Spirit.” He therefore advised Christians to seek to please the Holy Spirit both in the open and in secret because whatever we do secretly and privately will determine what we can do in the name of Jesus. Holy Spirit is more interested in what we do secretly and privately. He further said, “The one you serve in secret, in private will stand to reward you in the open.” He concluded by saying, “We are more of His friend in the open but more of His enemy in secret and in private.”
In praying for the viewers, Prophet T.B. Joshua asked the Lord to fill them with His faithfulness, holiness, obedience, humility. “Fill them Lord, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus, strengthen their faith and trust in You. Oh Holy Spirit, think through them till Your ideas are their ideas,” he prayed. He also prayed for those that are sick that Jesus should strengthen them and touch their bodies with good health.
Yinka, Angela, Anne, Chris and Racine not only read the email testimonies but also had a studio session relating to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s message. Chris began by noting that the world has been engulfed in crises mainly because people have failed to be their brother’s keeper by not extending a hand of genuine love to all irrespective of their social, religious or political affiliations.
Against the backdrop ofMatthew 5:45– “…He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”
Chris said: “It is more pleasant to do good to the ungrateful than to do good to the grateful people, for then we have God as our Paymaster.” Urging people to help others without expecting anything in return, Chris said that “we begin to live a life of victory when those who pray for us are more than those who curse us, want us to die, want us to be destoyed, want us to fail.” He therefore urged viewers to put the needs of others before theirs and ensure to sow a seed of goodness every day.
Angela added to the message by identifying two forms of help: help for God’s sake and help with expectation(Luke 6:32-36).She said that helping for God’s sake will attract God’s attention. On the other hand, if we help with expectation, it is not in Spirit and in truth and so is “all nothing”. To love without expectation is to show love without expecting anything in return from the person we have shown love to. When we love without expectation, our love is being sown to the Spirit. She therefore urged the viewers: “Sow to the Spirit, not to the flesh.”
They met for the first time in a hospital ward, both there for a mutual purpose: childbirth. However, the night unfolded and there were no signs of labour for either woman. The medical personnel present attempted to induce the labour process through various means without any seeming sign of success. Morning dawned and Esther soon started experiencing the early signs and pains of labour. Her time of delivery had arrived. However, her colleague Ngozi saw no differences and fear soon set in. After examination, doctors concluded that an operation was the only way for her to deliver safely. But God had other plans!
Here is their wonderful faith-building story, in Esther’s own words, as God wrought a miraculous wonder in the hospital ward through the medium of the Anointing Water.
“Emmanuel, God is with us. My name is Mrs Onyekachi Esther Nwoye from Anambra State and I have a testimony to share concerning the Anointing Water.
“On the 17th May 2011, I went to the hospital along with the Anointing Water to give birth to my second child. On getting there that day, I met another lady Mrs Ngozi Mbah who also came for childbirth. One funny thing about both of us is that we did not see any sign of labour at all. We only came according to the doctor’s instruction that we should come for induction – that is, to induce the baby because the baby is due.
The Anointing Water
“In the evening that very day, the doctor induced both of us with a tablet which he inserted into us. All through that night, we did not see any serious sign of labour though I personally had some changes in my body. So both of us were now neighbours and we started relating to each other. There were three other women who saw signs of labour with us and they all gave birth that night.
“In the morning, they checked our body and removed the tablet which was inserted into us and changed it with a hot drip to fasten the labour process. After some time, I went properly into labour whereas this other lady, Mrs Mbah, started weeping and crying uncontrollably. It got to the extent that the doctor’s attention was much on her and when he examined how far she had gone with labour, it was observed that it was just 1cm whereas I had gotten to 6cm, against 8-9cm for childbirth.
“After some time, the doctor concluded that her case was different and that she would be going through an operation (Caesarean Section). This made the lady to cry the more; she was so frightened. Seeing her pitiful condition, I could not hold back any more. Immediately, they removed the drip from her, cleaned her up and her husband signed for the operation. After they had finished cleaning her up, she came back to the labour ward and was still crying. At that time, I introduced the Anointing Water and The SCOAN to her and asked her if she believed that if I used it on her that she would deliver her baby safely. She accepted. Immediately, I ministered the Anointing Water three times in her mouth, also doing the same thing to myself. I left her with the words, “It is well”
“After some time, she went out and urinated. According to her, she felt something had passed out from her body. Then it was the time for her operation. They took her to the theatre and while the doctor was dressing up, the nurses were with her, preparing her for the operation. They had shelved her, fixed the urine rubber on her and were about to inject her. They asked her to lie down but, according to her, she did not know what pushed her up and she sat down and began telling them that she wanted to excrete. They refused to allow her and were quarrelling with her right there in the theatre.
“All of a sudden, her baby began to come out! One of the nurses saw what happened and immediately asked her to lie down. In a matter of minutes, the baby came out – while the doctor was still dressing up for the operation! It was not up to one hour that I also gave birth safely. When she came to the ward, she was crying and told me that the God of T. B. Joshua has delivered her and we hugged each other with tears in our eyes, celebrating. I am sharing this testimony to the glory of God and to build other people’s faith. Emmanuel!”
In (Luke 9:28-36) Jesus took Peter, James and John, and went up into a mountain to pray. As Jesus was praying, the fashion of His countenance was altered, and His raiment was white and glistering. There talking with Jesus were two great men of history, Moses and Elijah. These men appeared in glory, to speak of the death which Jesus should accomplish at Jerusalem. Unfortunately, Peter, James and John were deep in sleep, as many Christians are today. In (Hebrews 6-11), it says, “We will never know some things because of tired eyelids, we will never know some things because of carnal thinking”. They couldn’t see or record everything for us because they went to sleep. When they eventually awoke, they saw Jesus’ glory and the two men that stood with Him. Peter said unto Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tabernacles. One for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias”. While Peter thus spake, there came a cloud that overshadowed them. They feared as they entered into the cloud. A voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my beloved Son: hear him”.
In many similar ways, we receive the word of God from Prophet TB Joshua, the man of God in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN. God is using him and God is working out what He purposes us to be if only we will obey God’s word. One significant point being missed by many people in Nigeria, and across the globe, is the lack of appreciation either to God or even to Prophet TB Joshua for providing a holy arena like SCOAN for worship, healing, restoration, blessing and renewal of faith. Since the advent of covid-19, I have run out of the calculation of how many people should have visited Nigeria across the globe through SCOAN and be healed. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, an avenue to reach out to rescue the perishing and the dyeing was opened to SCOAN tagged “Distance is not a Barrier”. It can’t replace canonical mass worship, corporately praying together, or climbing the SCOAN altar in multitude with faith and joy of the Lord, or going to Prayer Mountain with other Christians all over the world. We miss SCOAN and like Peter, we are truly saying, “It is good to live in SCOAN”.
To Peter, it was a titanic stupendous occasion that three of them were privileged to be part of, out of the twelve. Those three men were privileged and chosen and set apart and allowed to be in a little portion of what took place on that mountain top. Peter recorded it that he was an eyewitness of the Majesty of Jesus Christ when they were with Jesus in the holy mountain (2 Peter 1:16-19). We are praying along with Prophet TB Joshua and looking forward to a time of Fellowship together in SCOAN the in the Arena of Liberty. Emmanuel
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field” (Matthew 13:44).
What do you treasure in this life? Is it wealth, possessions, fame or relationships? If you look around, you will agree with me that treasures on earth have a habit of disappointing us because we do not know if we will be around tomorrow to enjoy them.
Jesus said in Matthew 6:20-21 “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Many may ask, “How can I store up treasures in Heaven?” Possessions and money alone cannot bring contentment but giving them to help others can. The reality of our salvation will be judged by our willingness, cheerful eagerness to part with our possessions for the good of others. That is how you can seek first the Kingdom of God. This is how you can build up treasures in Heaven.
So, take time to draw closer to God. In this uncertain world, amidst the twists and turns of life, the only way you can be safe is if your treasure is in the hands of God.
In the midst of life’s uncertainties, we tend to look back to our family background, poor education and some other unfavourable circumstances around us. We are so busy with our past that we are unable to look at the other side and hear what God says in Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Upon all the promises of salvation she received, Lot’s wife looked back and behold, she became a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26). Answering the call of God, Peter walked on the water and yet the moment he looked back at his surroundings, Peter sank (Matthew 14:30).
Indeed, we cannot look at two different directions at the same time; broken focus is the real reason men fail. Brethren, Jesus calls you to look forward to Him so you can discover new strength, new courage. Discovery is for forward lookers – it is by looking forward that you discover new things, new horizons and new opportunities you would not have ordinarily dreamt of.
Today, look forward to Jesus and discover a new beginning, in Jesus’ name!
President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan has written an official letter to Prophet TB Joshua, thanking him for the role he played in bringing peace to the nation and inviting him once again to South Sudan.
After receiving this letter, when asked by journalists why he was valued more abroad than in Nigeria, Prophet TB Joshua responded: “If I am appreciated in my country more, then I am not following the footsteps of my Master Jesus. He was despised by the same people He came to liberate. I am happy that I face the same persecution as Jesus.” The son of God.
Here is the contents of the letter:
Dear Man of God,
REF: Invitation Letter
With due respect and honour, I am privileged to write to your highly esteemed prophetic office in reference to the above-mentioned subject.
First, I would like thank you, humble servant of the Most High God, for the higher grace and anointing upon your life, and for your love and humility by coming on your prophetic and historic visit on 12th November 2019 when the nation was in a desperate situation after experiencing civil war violence for many years.
The world organisations tried to negotiate peace but where human wisdom failed, God has the final answer. Hallelujah!
You prophesied that it shall be a new beginning for the nation and we, the leaders, should overcome our divisions and differences to develop our youngest nation in the world
Hence, we the government and opposition have come together to implement the revitalised peace agreement and now the nation is at peace followed by the formation of the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU), which signifies a new beginning indeed!
“For I am the Lord, I speak and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will no more be postponed…” (Ezekiel 12:25)
Secondly, based on the above-mentioned reference, I want to take this opportunity to invite you again to the Republic of South Sudan to harvest what you planted. The whole nation of South Sudan is ready to receive you once again.
“Being confident of this proverb, He who began the good work will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)
Please accept, dear Man of God, the assurance of my best regards.
The prayer recipients had connected from far away Germany, Bolivia, South Africa, Ghana, Zambia, Portugal, USA, among others, hoping for a miracle. Prophetess Angela reached out to them in faith from the Emmanuel TV Studios in Lagos, Nigeria. Despite the great distance, it was proved yet again that God’s power is more majestic in distance.
As the prophetess began prayers, the power of God travelled through distance into the homes of the people as every stronghold of satan in their lives was broken in Jesus’ name! Poisonous substances were vomited, medical supports were removed and joy replaced tears!
Attesting to God’s healing, saving and restoring power, they happily confessed their freedom. Gabriel, whose health had seriously deteriorated after he was shot in the dream and came down with severe waist pain, glorified God for his thorough healing as he discarded his body brace and lumbar corset. Josue also testified that he could run and breathe well without a nebuliser, as his problem of asthma since birth was now a thing of the past! He happily played basketball, confirming his total healing! Thank You, Jesus!
Christians from as far as China have trudged in their numbers to Nigeria in search of a ‘miracle’ through the ministry of Pastor T.B. Joshua.
Despite recent reports highlighting the suppression of Christianity in Communist China, it has not deterred large groups of Chinese citizens embarking on religious tourism to Joshua’s popular Lagos-based church named The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).
On Sunday 25thAugust 2019, in Joshua’s church service broadcast on Emmanuel TV – YouTube’s most watched Christian ministry network with over 500,000,000 individual views – more than 150 Asian worshippers can be seen in the midst of the multicultural crowd.
A Chinese citizen named Shou Qiang shared a public testimony that he was ‘delivered’ from a ‘suicidal spirit’ following Joshua’s prophecy and prayers.
Accompanied by his wife and young daughter, Qiang admitted he had almost committed suicide on three occasions prior to his visit to Nigeria but that after his ‘miracle’, he no longer nursed such ‘demonic’ tendencies.
“I feel very free and calm in my heart; I am totally delivered,”he divulged in his ‘testimony, adding that he now intends to ‘share the good news’ with his fellow Chinese citizens.
Recent months have seen a spike in Chinese visitors to Nigeria for the purpose of pilgrimage to Joshua’s church, with groups equally arriving from Hong Kong, Vietnam, Korea and Singapore.
Tourism experts estimate religious tourism contributes over 3% of Nigeria’s GDP, and official figures
indicate visitors to The SCOAN account for 60% of foreigners entering the nation.
According to Wikipedia, the two nations have a rich history of bilateral relations and China is considered one of Nigeria’s most important trading and export partners.
It was Easter Sunday, so The SCOAN Choir began with a song celebrating Christ’s victory over death. And as undeniable manifestation of the power of resurrection, The Arena of Liberty flowed with the anointing of deliverance, healing and blessings.
“We are living in the end times,” Prophet T.B. Joshua began his Easter Sunday message entitled FEAR CHANGES FOCUS, adding, “and there is a manifestation of the spirit of fear all over.” In a highly interactive sermon in which he later asked some worshippers to sum up their understanding to him, the man of God read from Luke 22:39-43, the passage in which Jesus asked for “the cup” to pass over Him even as He asked for God, the Father’s will to be done.
The God of prophet TB Joshua is a wonder working God. If you are outside Nigeria, and you do not have the time or money to Come to Nigeria yourself, Look for some one you trust who can get the morning water or anointed stickers from Senior prophet TB Joshua. But if you do not have the time to come to the church and get it, send an E-mail directly to SCOAN ADMIN ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) specifying what you need. We will send the morning water to you, it’s totally free.
He said, “The good news is that we have a Friend, the Holy Spirit, who can help us to fight this monster called fear”. He cited the case of our Lord Jesus Christ, who received strength from the Holy Spirit while in the Garden of Gethsemane. After illustrating how fear tends to rule our hearts and prevents us from reaching our full potential, the prophet asked worshippers to find out God’s will in their lives in every situation.
Racine spoke on the topic, ALIFE ANEW. Citing the Book of Romans 6:4-8, Racine spoke extensively on the power of Jesus’ resurrection noting that “to be born again, you must first die with Christ and resurrect with Him.” He noted the importance of breaking the link with our past and dwelling on the future, hence the reference to Lot and the man at the pool of Bethesda, among others. Racine therefore urged the congregation: “Each time you want to focus on your future the devil is already there, always there to remind you of your unworthy past in order to provoke your guilt, your fear and to hinder your future. Don’t look back.”
“IT WAS LIKE 20 BREAKTHROUGHS IN ONE!” SAYS MAN HEALED OF EPILEPSY
A Nigerian from Edo State, Mr Nosa Ikhimiukor, was all smiles when he came to testify of the Lord’s goodness in his life, accompanied by his parents. In 2005, as he matriculated, he suddenly found himself experiencing epileptic seizures, sometimes having as many as five of them in one day. Exasperated about his condition, the doctors suggested he opt out of school but his father refused the suggestion, urging the doctors to help alleviate his child’s suffering. Mr Ikhimiukor’s seizures always left him depressed and in pains. Shamed by his condition, he kept to himself as he battled the aftermath of nightmares. One day, a friend told him about Emmanuel TV and the young man tuned to the channel. Seeing a case like his on TV, Mr Ikhimiukor resolved to attend The SCOAN. While there, God’s power fell on him as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him and he received his instant healing. Several months down the line, Mr Ikhimiuokor is still basking in the total freedom from epilepsy which the Lord had granted him. He has since regained his vibrancy and vitality. He has also begun to witness amazing career breakthrough. Now released to him are the professional certificates which the medical council had withheld from him because of his condition. Also released to him are his certificates in business consultancy and project management. He has also received certificates of recognition from renowned organisations. He advised people to believe in God.
HE ONLY WANTED A CHILD BUT GOD GAVE HIM MUCH MORE!
Mr Manuel Okomo, an Equatorial Guinean, had come to The SCOAN because of the problem of infertility. For eight years, his wife had been unable to fall pregnant, so the couple sought God at The SCOAN, with the wife’s brother also tagging along. As God had designed it, the three of them received a touch from Prophet T.B. Joshua, in Jesus’ name and as they returned home, good things began to happen in their lives. First, Mrs Yolanda Okomo conceived in the same month she visited The SCOAN and had a baby girl nine months later. Second, Mr Okomo witnessed incredible career elevation as he was appointed medical Director of his country’s largest teaching hospital. He was also appointed on the board of the largest international bank in West Africa. Third, his in-law, who accompanied them to The SCOAN that fateful day got a university scholarship in Barcelona, Spain and graduated as the best student in his set. Fourth, Mrs Okomo also got a reputable job. Testifying during The SCOAN Sunday Service, the Okomos, clutching their ‘miracle’ child Rebecca, advised people to have faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ.
REJECTED STONE BECOMES HEAD OF THE CORNER!
In 2014, when she came to The SCOAN for prayers, Mrs Elsie Nghikembua, from Namibia, had been battling with career stagnancy. This much was revealed to God’s servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua, who prophesied that the woman had been getting passed over for promotion at her workplace. Though due for a promotion in her organization, Mrs Nghikembua was surprisingly ignored when an opportunity showed up. Although she continued her work diligently, she suffered a high level of opposition in the system. She finally threw in the towel in 2016 when it was evident that she had no career future in the said company. she then applied for a position as Election Commissioner. Before submitting her application, she ministered The New Morning Water which she had received during her visit to The SCOAN on her documents. To the glory of God, she was one of the five selected for the position by the Namibian president. Again, in 2018, she submitted her application for the position of Assistant Director of Operations in the University of Namibia Business School. She again ministered the New Morning Water and she emerged as the successful candidate among close to 400 applicants. Before ending her testimony, Mrs Nghikembua informed the church that she had first been to The SCOAN in 2009, with her husband. She testified that, on returning home, they were blessed with a daughter who will be turning nine years old later this year. She advised people to keep their eyes fixed on Jesus and He will see them through.
DELIVERED FROM SEVERAL YEARS OF BEDWETTING!
For a good 42 years of her life, Mrs Ernestine Williams was a bedwetter, something she had been battling with since she was seven years old. A Sierra Leonean living in Kenya with her husband, Mrs Ernestine had had to live with this embarrassing situation until last week, when she received her deliverance, in the mighty name of Jesus, at The SCOAN. Regarding the prophecies she received from the woman of God, Mrs Williams confirmed that her late grandmother had been a worshipper of marine spirits and that she was named after her grandmother. She also confirmed that her sister suffered the same problem of bedwetting. Concerned about her daughter’s condition, Mrs Williams’ mother had taken up the matter, visiting spiritualists in Guinea together with her daughter, all to no avail.
Since her healing last week at The SCOAN, Mrs Williams has literally kept a clean sheet, just as her spirit husband has been banished forever. Glorifying God for her healing and thanking her husband for not abandoning her even though he had discovered her condition before marrying her, she advised people not to ignore their partners and to run to God for solutions to their problems. On his part, Mr Williams said, “My wife’s strengths far outweigh her weaknesses; I do not reject her.” He urged people not to judge their partners’ character but to find out God’s reason for bringing them together.
MISS TAGOE TAKES TO HER FEET AGAIN!
A few months ago, Miss Gloria Tagoe, a 21-year-old Ghanaian living in Qatar with her mother, had suddenly found herself afflicted with the problem of bilateral deep vein thrombosis of the lower limbs. The condition left her unable to walk without the aid of crutches and a special pair of socks. Despite seeing medical experts, Miss Tagoe did not get better and had to drop out of university in Ukraine. At a point, she couldn’t breathe and had to be placed on oxygen owing to a blood clot that reached all the way to her lungs and at a point, she was totally bedridden.
Needless to say, she couldn’t bathe herself not to talk of cook
her own meals. Her mother decided to bring her to The SCOAN. After prayers from the woman of God, in the name of Jesus Christ, Miss Tagoe stood up and walked again for the first time in a very long time. As she took her first steps again, her mother exclaimed in excitement, screaming thanks to God in utter joyousness. Testifying in church the following Sunday alongside her mother, Miss Tagoe told of how her healing had started even as she began watching Emmanuel TV right in her country of residence. She walked around on the aisle as she shared her testimony with the world. She advised people to have faith in Jesus Christ, the
