Godspeed and fare thee well brother and please rest in peace. You ran your course, you fought a good fight, you did us proud and you earned your crown.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy power? For even in the grave, Jesus is Lord!

I close with David’s famous words when he learnt apart the passing of King Saul and his friend Jonathan. He said,

“Tell it not in Gath, proclaim it not in the streets of Ashkelon lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, Lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph…How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! O Jonathan, thou wast slain in thine high places. I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women. How are the mighty fallen and the weapons of war perished!”- 2 Samuel 1: 20, 25-27.

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

THE GENERATION OF VIPER THAT SEE HATRED AND DIVISION AS HOLINESS

The hypocritical generation where are you heading to?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What a generation?

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

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

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

Who has bewitched these folks called Christians?

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

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

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

TO THE YOUNG MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL:

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

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

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

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

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

Let love lead.

Shalom

TB Joshua Brings his Congregation and Viewers Back to the Bible

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV, Prayer mountain

Prophet T.B. Joshua

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

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

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

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

Prophet T.B Joshua

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

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

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

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.


NB : the only official email address for the new anointed healing morning water and other faith tools is scoanonlineservices@gmail.com

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!
