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.”

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.

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.

FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND POWER


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.

YOUR PAST IS OVER AND DONE WITH

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

If you want to be successful in life, do not look back; it is a dangerous thing to do unless it is meant to glorify God for what He has done in your life. Be a forward looker. Discovery is for forward lookers. – TB Joshua

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

In these passages, Jesus was simply sending the same message to both the adulterous woman and the man He healed at the pool: Both of them were rescued from death by His grace. He was like saying to them, ‘See, your past is over now; stop looking back or something worse might happen to you. I am not interested in your unworthy past. Now that you are sanctified and cleansed by the words I have spoken to you, you should remain cleansed. It is very dangerous to look back; focus on your future and I am that future’.

When your past is over, your accuser would flee because the only thing that connects you to him is your past. He has no other information about you. The Bible says, satan is our accuser. If you want to be successful in life, do not look back; it is a dangerous thing to do unless it is meant to glorify God for what He has done in your life. Be a forward looker. 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.

Remember only faith pleases God, and faith focuses on God instead of our past. It acts now, believes now, receives now and confesses now. If you are to solve today’s problems, using the approach of yesterday, you would not make a difference. Therefore, you must change your attitude, character, general approach to life, in order to reset your mind.

Looking Forward With Prophet TB Joshua to a Quick SCOAN Reopening

covid 19, tb joshua, scoan

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! scoanonlineservices@gmail.com is the only recognized SCOAN email for the online acquisition of the faith tools for 2021

Emmanuel.

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

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

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

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

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

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

FAITH TOOLS FOR 2021! – TB Joshua

Tb Joshua,  Anointing Water, 2021 Prophecy

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

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

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

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