Healed Physically, Spiritually or Emotionally

healing, TB Joshua

The single remedy that cures every case in this world emotionally, physically or spiritually, and which has never been known to fail, is the Lord Jesus Christ. Exodus 1:26 says, “I am the Lord that health thee”. Jesus continues to use His healing power as an effective entry point to helping us to understand His Good News Message of Salvation and freedom from sin power. Even whilst Jeremiah (22:18) was questioning his people saying, “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?” Jesus has always been the Balm in Gilead and the Healer. Before He ascended into heaven, He spoke to His followers that “they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:18). This anointing was so strong on the Apostles that “many signs and wonders were regularly done among the people by the hands of the apostles . . . believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them. The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed, (Acts 5:12-16). God’s will is for us to walk in divine healing and health, physically and spiritually. The Ministry of Prophet TB Joshua of the SCOAN Lagos Nigeria represents the Apostolic Ministry of our day, tapping into the promises of God. Jesus is making Healing a component of SCOAN’s teaching and activities across the globe.

Who are the people getting healing from Jesus in the Bible? One of them was a woman having an issue of blood for twelve years, (Luke 8:43-48). The woman had spent all her living upon physicians but couldn’t be healed of any of them. She came behind Jesus and touched the border of His garment. Immediately her issue of blood stanched. At that level, she obtained what we want to described loosely here as physical healing. But Jesus questioned, “Who touched me?” All denied and Jesus said, “Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me”. Eventually, she came trembling and falling before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for why she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. Jesus said unto her, “Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace”. She was brought to the full knowledge of Who Jesus is. Knowing Jesus is the spiritual aspect of healing. If Jesus had allowed her to go back to the crowd she might have run away with the impression that Jesus is also a super physician in town, whereas He is our Saviour, our Healer and by His stripes, we are healed. It is a complete package of emotional, physical and spiritual healing that we get from Jesus and which must be maintained by following Jesus.

Jesus also heals a Man Born Blind as another example of the people receiving this divine grace. “As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth”, (John 9). This healing was done so that the “works of God might be displayed in Him” (verse 4). Also to reveal the person of Jesus, “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world”, (verse 5). The blind man’s faith and obedience must be acknowledged. He had never known or heard of Jesus before, but somehow believed and obeyed Him. The Pharisees investigated the healing only to display their spiritual blindness.

Incidentally, many people coming to SCOAN for healing belong to one or other groups; such as, “I don’t go to church”, “This is my first time in SCOAN”, “I have been to all over the places for healing to no avail”, “My pastor discouraged my coming earlier”, “I have been watching Emmanuel.tv”, etc. The Lord Jesus and His followers ministered healing even to those with little or no understanding of the things of God. Hence healing and all other God’s divine interventions in our circumstances must be that “His mercy brings both miracles and salvation”. This mercy healing is available to everyone. On the other hand, religious leaders are confused thinking of getting to the Healing Ministry by some rigorous academic research, going to a College of Divinity for a PhD degree programme, etc.

We perceive that this generation, like every other before it, consists of different minds when it comes to Who Jesus is, His disciples and the teaching of healing. In particular, the contemporary society is filled at one end with men and women of simplistic minds thinking that all there is are the only things their eyes can see. On the other end are the spiritualists, the rituals, the demons, the cultists where many religious leaders probably belong. Our Lord Jesus Christ heals because He is full of compassion towards mankind and He knows that healing belongs to God’s children. Jesus heals us from all our infirmities to fulfil God’s promises and to glorify His heavenly Father. Furthermore, Jesus heals to confirm His Word, demonstrate the power in His blood and to expose the devil’s defeat and the devil’s failure. Peter explained to Cornelius that “Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil”, (Acts 10:37-38). Jesus knows all our needs even the number of hairs on our heads, (Matthew 10: 29-30), even our infirmities, and weaknesses.

We recall the parable of Lazarus and the unnamed Rich man told by Jesus in (Luke 16:19-31). Lazarus was described as a beggar with sores, looking for what to eat and dogs coming around him to lick his sores, whereas the Rich man was in luxury every day. The time came when Lazarus died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s bosom. The Rich man also died and was buried in Hades, where he was being tormented; he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side, (verse 24). Lazarus reclined at Abraham’s bosom, a position for the guest of honour at a banquet. We read in the gospels that John had that position next to Jesus, (John 13:23). Those who trusted in God’s Word were promised to be with Abraham in God’s kingdom. This is spiritual healing and our hope.

Hence as we continue to watch and pray with Emmanuel.tv, with Prophet TB Joshua and his SCOAN team, with other Christians, or individually, for healing, for blessing, for a breakthrough, the sole aim should be to encounter Jesus Christ and His awesome power. It is a big privilege and God’s divine mercy to be healed either through prayers, medication, diet or exercise. It becomes spiritual when it leads to the source and the Healer. In this generation, we have been blessed to have a Prophet like TB Joshua who is not just doing miracles but can live by the Word that leads to salvation. TB Joshua’s Ministry is “Healing the Christian World” today, turning it from serving the god of Marmon, the god of raising supermen who can build so many branches and raise so many funds but the people are not edified and made to encounter Jesus. TB Joshua often says that reward is not necessarily the result of faithful prayer. Lazarus must have prayed but his result came to him when least expected in the bosom of Abraham. What Prophet TB Joshua and his Ministry have contributed to how the public should see Christ is in the “Returning to the Apostolic Age” rather than the “Transaction Christianity Approach”. The Transaction Christianity Approach is to claim that because you sow an amount of seed you reap so much because you pay your tithes you are blessed more because you fasted for seven days you are blessed more than when you fasted only three days, you pay so much and you are prayed for that much. TB Joshua and SCOAN have left such schools through the power of Jesus, and now seeing Christ as He is. Of course, we need to pay our tithes and labour for Christ every moment. Nevertheless let us know that by grace we have been saved, through faith and this is not from ourselves. It is the gift of God and not by works so that no one can boast, (Ephesians 2:8-9). Hence be healed physically and spiritually in Jesus mighty name. Distance is not a barrier. Emmanuel!

A CRY BORN OF FAITH!

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

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

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

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

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

FEET OF CLAY

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

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

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

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

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

HIS NAME IS NOT A SPELL

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN,Emmanuel TV,

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

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

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

Encounter of Prophet Elijah the Tishbite and the Widow of Zarephath

ProElijah, Tishbite, Zarephath

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

tb joshua, scoan, emmauel tv, coronavirus

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

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

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

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

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

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

The SCOAN is continually on an Ongoing Fight Against Satan

tb joshua, scoan, emmanuel tv

Prophet TB Joshua

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

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

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

THE BEST PLACE YOU CAN EVER BE

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

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

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

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

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

JOY BREAKS EVERY BARRIER

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

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

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

Jesus Knew What He Would Do

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

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

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

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

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

QUARANTINED MEDICAL DOCTOR HEALED FROM COVID-19!!!

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

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

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

The Cold War Against TB Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

When we reveal that there is an anti-TB Joshua gang out there that are on a secret mission (though no longer secrete) to kill the Prophet, don’t try to get yourself being misled that we are being alarmist. It is important to bring this to your notice that all this information are not just exaggerated reports, but they are well received classified intelligent security reports from diverse sources around the world on the evil plot against TB Joshua’s life and ministry.

As times goes on, we will be trying our best to draw your attention to some events that will be unfolding. Matching those events with these security reports will go a long way in unveiling the truth.

We need to know that the evil forces who have taken control of the world establishments are as we speak, waging a deadly cold war against TB Joshua and his ministry. TB Joshua is being targeted in every front and those behind this conspiracy are doing it in such a way that it is difficult to trace where the targets are coming from. It will only take one with deep insight into conspiracy matters and personal revelations from God to know what is going on. And you will be shocked to know those behind all these evil schemes against the Prophet. Always put it in mind that it is a local and international collaboration.

In our past published security recommendation here to the Prophet and the SCOAN family worldwide, we made mentioned as part of the security intelligent reports we received that there is a plan target against those that have publicly associated with TB Joshua, especially those in well-placed positions. We told everyone to watch their back because those that want to kill TB Joshua will be coming after them too. They will be blackmailed and there imaged tarnished with supports from News media and journalist; which is a part of the holistic scheme in their targeting of TB Joshua and his ministry.

The world is under the power of Satan and those that have sold their soul because of the vanity of this world are the ones who are into this scheme to kill the Prophet and as well targeting those around him. They are not comfortable with the great work of God in the SCOAN and the grace of God – the spiritual powers/ gift in the life of the Prophet.

Most of their evil schemes they intended against the Children of God are being forced to be on hold and those in enforcement are being brought to not through the Prophetic gift, healings and deliverance in the life and ministry of the Prophet, and these they are not comfortable with.

They don’t know what God may do next through the Prophet and they are counting the day they will be exposed for the evil they are. To their shame before the entire world.

We are all aware of the reported persecution our beloved Sister in Christ, Mrs Fatmata Edna Kargbo is going through because of the testimony she gave to the glory of God at the SCOAN on the goodness and mercies of God upon her life, family and career.

The facts that the world News media are trying to twist the truths and create the impression that Mrs Fatmata Edna Kargbo completed are God’s given house after 14 years through proceeds of corruption, should not come as a surprise to anyone.

We are all aware of the role she played compelling the government of her nation to seek aid from TB Joshua during the period when the deadly Ebola Virus was spreading around communities and killing citizens of the nation of Sierra Leone.

Remember the security reports that came from an alleged Russian security sources during the period of the attacked at the SCOAN guest house . It claimed one of the reasons for the attacked against the SCOAN was the role the Prophet played as an instrument in God’s hand in helping some Africa nation during the Ebola virus crisis. (Note: we are not in any way given a substantiation to the said report since there have not been any official response from the SCOAN about that report till date.) The said lady that is being persecuted right now was the one who out of patriotism and love for her nation persuade her government to seek divine help from God in TB. Joshua’s ministry.

For those who watched her first Testimony, she gave Live on Emmanuel TV after God’s intervention in stopping the spread of the Ebola virus in her nation. There was a revealing part of her testimony that was edited out in the respond Video from the SCOAN concerning her recent travail.

Mrs Fatmata Edna Kargbo was the one who exposed on Emmanuel TV the opposition they face from some powerful international bodies who confiscated the Anointed Waters sent by TB Joshua to help stop the Ebola Virus diseases. This was even though the Anointed water was officially ordered by the then government in power. But some powerful international forces never wanted the anointed water to be used but with the help of some persons amongst them, who have the fear of God some of the anointed water was secretly released to them to be used in some regions.

She and some voluntaries had to risk their lives to go to does affected regions to minister the anointed waters and does regions have been declared Ebola virus-free till date.

So therefore, we must know where this battle is coming from and the direction it is heading towards.

Let us not forget the many conspiracy theories out there about the Ebola Virus disease itself– like those that say it was manmade, a biological weapon and it was created to reduced or exterminate the African race. Also, TB Joshua said the Ebola virus was manufactured from the pit of hell. We will allow you to put things together and think for yourself.

MAY GOD DELIVER HIS CHURCH FROM EVERY PLOT EMANATING FROM THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS! AMEN!!

How Do We Prove Our Love For God?

The SCOAN Sunday Service took off with inspired singing ministration as The SCOAN Choir sang about the need for believers to let go of their worries and continue to trust in God. Whatever the believers’ trials, they assured, always it is well with our soul. As they called for the glory of the Lord to fill The SCOAN, congregants began to fall under the anointing, paving the way for more signs and wonders as the service progressed.

In his message, Prophet T.B. Joshua read from Matthew 19:19 before going into the prayer and prophecy session. With the Bible reference, the Man of God stressed the need to obey God’s commandment on loving our neighbour. He admonished the congregants to love their neighbours unconditionally, including those who fail to return such love, and regardless of their religious, professional, social, racial and ideological backgrounds. “It is not possible to love God without loving your neighbour,” he insisted. Finally, he said that our love for God is proven only when we keep His commandments.

TESTIMONIES

NO LONGER A VICTIM OF UNCEASING BLOOD FLOW AND PAINS

By the time Ms Unami Banda got her healing two weeks ago from fibroids causing constant bleeding, she had been suffering for 15 years. In 2004 the Botswana citizen had suddenly started to bleed even when she was not having her period. She took various medications to no avail and in 2009 had a fruitless operation. “During my periods I would use up to 48 pads,” she told the church on Sunday. She said the problem brought her rejection, limitation and hardship. “You devil, remove your hand from my people, in the name of Jesus Christ,” Prophet TB Joshua had prayed two Sundays ago. He then asked the ushers to check a lady who needed help in the restroom. To the glory of God, Ms Banda’s blood had dried up. Also gone was the severe leg pain she used to feel because of her condition. She advised people never to give up on God no matter their problems.

NO LONGER WILL HE TRY TO TAKE HIS OWN LIFE!

Three times in the past had he attempted to commit suicide. The Chinese Mr Shou Qiang thought he had been minded to take his own life only because of “family problems” but it was in fact a household demon that was dogging his steps. That much came out in a prophecy as Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered a fortnight ago. Confirming the prophecy, Mr Qiang mentioned those who had already killed themselves on both sides of his family. He also gave details of his own previous efforts to end it all, saved on each occasion by “a strong power” that held him back. Just on the day their flight was due, the Qiangs’ visas came out and their trip to The SCOAN became possible after all. “Now I feel very free and calm in my heart,” Mr Qiang testified on Sunday as he told the church that he had now recovered his original mission and vision. With renewed fervour for the Lord, he advised people feeling hopeless to hold on to the hand of Jesus and He will see them through.

EVIL BEADS EXPOSED THROUGH PROPHECY!

On the day Miss Jenrola Adebayo went to the market and bought waist beads for beautification, she didn’t realise that she was opening the doorway to the spirit of lust. Since then, the undergraduate had been the nemesis of the numerous men who slept with her, as they either fell gravely ill or suffered serious career and financial misfortune. Jenrola herself became rebellious, never showing any regard for her mother and sometimes refusing to talk to her for months. She also found herself appearing in the marine kingdom, where people bowed to her. Moreover, she was always an angry person and the spirit in her would often make her go to the crossroads in the middle of the night. Invisible to the people, she would watch as sacrifices were dropped at such junctions. Jenrola’s temper was legendary and if she was angry at someone it was enough to bring misfortune to such a person. To calm her anger, she would have to dip her feet in a river. Jenrola was nevertheless always sure to command male attention once she had her beads on. But a voice had lately been asking the very secretive girl to go home. When she finally did, her mother warmly accepted her and brought her to The SCOAN two Sundays ago. And that was when the Spirit of the Lord arrested her as Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a prophecy regarding a lady in the congregation wearing beads. Jenrola came forward to confirm the prophecy and she received her deliverance. Now she eats well and no longer sleeps cross-legged even as her bad dreams are over. She also testified that the spirit of lust is gone. Jenrola’s mother advised parents to monitor and pray for their children, without allowing them to go too far away. Jenrola advised young people to beware of what they buy and to avoid the distraction from material things.

WITH GONORRHOEA GONE, BLOODY URINE TURNS NORMAL

Mr Chinaza Okafor, a Nigerian young man, had been urinating blood following a gonorrhoea infection that had defied medical solution. According to him, he contracted this disease through the act of fornication. He came to The SCOAN a fortnight ago, as advised by his friend and received prayers in the mighty name of Jesus. As the woman of God prayed for him, he fell to the ground under the power of the anointing. Prophetess Yinka then asked him to confirm his healing. For someone who had earlier urinated blood right before the camera that same morning, it was amazing to see him discharge normal urine after the prayers. Mr Okafor advised people to make sure they do God’s will.

RID OF EXTREME INSOMNIA AND PERPETUAL ILLNESS, MOTHER AND STEPDAUGHTER GLORIFY GOD

On Sunday, the family of Comrade Godwin Ishang testified to God’s awesome power. His daughter, Patience, took the floor first, detailing her many battles with sickness right from infancy. She also gave details of her wayward lifestyle first as a secondary school student and later in nursing school. Patience told of her love for alcohol and smoking, as well as how she ran away from home.

As part of her health complications, she always had tears in her eyes whenever she tried to read. One time, her body started swelling and her skin turned dark. Even more, she could never defecate until she took drugs, just as she had difficulty in breathing alongside excruciating waist pain. For Mrs Pauline Ishang, Patience’s stepmother, the major problem was insomnia, a condition she had suffered for the past two years. An evil voice also constantly threatened to kill her. Neither drugs from doctors nor strange concoctions from herbalists did anything to ease her sleeplessness, hotness of body and headaches. However, since both women’s deliverance two weeks ago at The SCOAN, it has been testimonies galore. Nowadays, Mrs Pauline Ishang sleeps as peacefully as a baby and Patience has parted ways with pain, defecating easily without the aid of drugs. She also testified that the urge to drink alcohol and smoke is gone. Comrade Ishang, a native of Cross River, Nigeria, rounded off the testimony by shedding further light on the family’s problems and glorifying the name of the Lord for setting them free. He advised people to be patient while showing faith in God. Mrs Godwin advised people to believe they will get their own blessings. Addressing parents, Patience said, “Don’t give up on your children.”

HEALED OF DEAFNESS AND FIBROIDS

It was a double testimony for Mrs Doreen Kunda at The Living Water Service of two Mondays ago. With her husband, she had come from Lusaka, Zambia hoping for a miracle. And a miracle she did get, shortly after Prophet T.B. communed with God on The SCOAN Altar and invited worshippers to take their turn there in seeking God’s face. As Doreen got there she started smacking her right ear uncontrollable while reacting vigorously. Then she started vomiting.

Moments later, to her amazement, her deaf right ear had opened up and she could hear with it again, after 12 long years. She later took the Living Water. On Sunday, she testified alongside her husband and explained how the deafness had affected her work as a teacher and as a wife and mother. What was more, Doreen’s testimony revealed, when she got to her room that day, she also passed out the remnants of the fibroids that had burst in her following her intake of The Living Water. She said, “For the fibroids we had been to many clinics to no avail. Now I’m feeling very light and can walk around without pain in my belly.” Mr Kunda advised people to be patient with their ailing spouses and to seek God’s face at all times while Doreen stressed God’s ability to solve all problems.

AFTER 12 YEARS, NO MORE FIBROID BLEEDING FOR MRS CHIBOLELA

Mrs Albertina Chibolela, a Zambian, had been bleeding for 12 years due to multiple fibroids. Not knowing how else to help her, doctors had suggested removing her uterus, as had been done for her mother and sister.

In faith, however, she visited The SCOAN for prayers and God’s power located her a fortnight ago, during the Monday Living Water Service as Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied regarding her condition. Albertina came out to confirm Prophet T.B. Joshua’s pronouncement on her case. Seconds later, Albertina drank The Living Water that was fetched for her and she fell to the floor immediately, vomiting the poisonous substances in her system and instantly, the problems of fibroid and bleeding became things of the past in her life. During her testimony on Sunday, Albertina told of how the problem had been a major reproach in her life. However, since the prophetic message on Sunday, she said, “Inside me I started vibrating and I have not bled since then and no longer feel pain in my tummy”. Happy that she can now manage her resources better and plan for the future, Albertina advised people to run to God for solutions to their challenges.

PRAYERS AND MORNING WATER MELTS OVARIAN CYSTS AND FIBROIDS

It was in 2012 that Alison Hwalima started watching Emmanuel TV. In January 2013 she visited The SCOAN, having been bleeding and feeling severe pains from ovarian cysts and fibroids.

The Zambian international businesswoman always dreaded her menses, as it was always a time of fearsome pain and heavy blood loss. Once, when her menses met her in Dubai, she was forced to buy very expensive, yet ineffective, drugs from a clinic. To replenish her constant blood loss, Alison had to take blood tonics all the time. During her visit, Alison received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua and got the Morning Water as well. “I felt a very hot sensation during the prayers and I had to take off my shoes,” she told the church on Sunday. When she got to her country, she continued ministering the Morning Water. By November 2013 the doctors could confirm that her cysts had gone and that the fibroids were degenerating. A few months after, the fibroids were also all gone. As she ended her testimony, Alison advised people to never give up on God.

NO LONGER BONDED TO SPIRIT OF MAN

Mr Chetanna Nwabuwa’s deliverance from the spirit of man occurred after a prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua two Sundays ago. The Ghana-based Nigerian’s problems had its roots in a childhood that had exposed him to disturbing practices among much older males. As he grew older, he started developing affections for fellow men.

For about 20 years Chetanna bore the weight of this abnormality, sometimes attempting to channel his affection towards animals whenever he couldn’t find willing males. To boost his chances of finding partners, he kept getting tattoos that he believed would attract them. In his bid to escape from his demons, Chetanna moved over to his sister’s but things worsened instead, despite several ‘washes’ by spiritualists. To divert people from his real nature, he kept a number of girls in whom he had very little interest, dismissing them when they came with claims of pregnancy. Confirming her man’s unusual concern about his male friends’ welfare, Chetanna’s fiancée spoke of how much she abhorred the spirit of man and how affectionless their relationship was. Since his deliverance, however, Chetanna’s body has returned to its default setting and he is now planning to marry the mother of his son. “Nothing is too big for God to do,” his fiancée said, while his sister advised people to give good guidance to their children and wards. Chetanna himself advised, “You cannot use darkness to fight darkness.”

SAVED FROM THE KILLER JAWS OF OCCULT EXTORTIONISTS

In 2014 she was just a young woman facing some of the ‘normal’ problems of life: separation from spouse, money challenges, career worries etc. Rather than turn to God for a solution to her problems, Babalwa contacted an organisation which had advertised its claims of being able to help her. They asked her to spell out her name – and that was the beginning of her initiation into a secret society which then asked her to bring her bath water two days later. From then on, they had the woman locked in hypnosis, demanding she start handing them her salary and threatening to kill any family member she told before killing her as well. So, from August 2014 she started remitting her salary to them; she also gave them her BMWx3 ride. Expectedly, she became broke and her family started to worry. She equally had dreams in which she was always eating good food and laughing at people drowning as she hovered over the water surface. Ashamed of what she had got into, she decided to visit The SCOAN. And that was how a prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua located her two Sundays ago. Since Babalwa’s deliverance, her occult extortionists have now backed off. She advised people to honour God before men in their trials.

FOR THE EBANS, IT’S A RENEWAL OF MARITAL VOWS

One would have thought they had the perfect union but Mrs Blessing Eban had in fact been intending to walk away from the marriage. She had packed up her things preparatory to finally moving over to her parents’.

“I was not having that inner peace and fulfilment since I got married,” she said, trying to explain why she dropped her ring and moved out of the home. “I was not ready to fight for the marriage,” she added. Meanwhile, she visited The SCOAN to find out God’s mind. Two weeks ago, a prophecy located her in church:

“You cannot leave that man,” Prophet T.B. Joshua counselled her as he gave the prophetic message that restored her marriage. As the couple testified in church on Sunday, Mr Linus forgave his wife and slipped back the rejected ring into her finger. “The affection is back,” Blessing disclosed. She advised people to let God and love lead them just as Linus encouraged people to go into marriage with full commitment.
