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

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

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.
