LOOK FORWARD

In the midst of life’s uncertainties, we tend to look back to our family background, poor education and some other unfavourable circumstances around us. We are so busy with our past that we are unable to look at the other side and hear what God says in Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Upon all the promises of salvation she received, Lot’s wife looked back and behold, she became a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26). Answering the call of God, Peter walked on the water and yet the moment he looked back at his surroundings, Peter sank (Matthew 14:30).

Indeed, we cannot look at two different directions at the same time; broken focus is the real reason men fail. Brethren, Jesus calls you to look forward to Him so you can discover new strength, new courage. Discovery is for forward lookers – it is by looking forward that you discover new things, new horizons and new opportunities you would not have ordinarily dreamt of.

Today, look forward to Jesus and discover a new beginning, in Jesus’ name!

HIS COVENANT

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN Emmanuel TV

“He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.
Remember His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations…” 1 Chronicles 16:14-15

If God has not promised anything, how do we know that He is faithful? From age to age, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has shown Himself as a God who keeps His promises. You cannot separate God from His will, promises and time. Without God’s promises, your faith is not real faith.

Yet you seem to forget when you are facing a challenge that you are what God says you are. You seem to forget that you have what God says you have. You seem to forget that you and God together can move mountains.

No matter what you think, feel or do, what matters is what God has said. There is nothing more ridiculous than to allow your present situation to cause you to doubt the fulfilment of God’s promises for your life.

How do you know that promise? We know God by the Word He speaks and the Word He speaks represents His heart’s desire. His Word is filled with promises for every matter; insert your name where the message is personal and by faith, believe, receive and confess His promises daily.

Let God’s Word continue to run in your heart. Let His Word continue to run in your spirit.

No matter what happens, no matter what comes, let nothing take you from His covenant. Again i said, let nothing take you from His covenant.

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.

Jesus Paid a Sabbath Visit at the Pool of Bethesda

tb joshua, scoan,jesus

There was a feast of the Jews and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, (please read John chapter 5). The Pool of Bethesda was in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate (John 5:2), surrounded by five covered colonnades. The Sheep Gate was doubtless the gate through which the sheep travelled on their way to be sacrificed in the temple. During Jesus’ time, the Pool of Bethesda lay outside Jerusalem city walls. The name of the pool, “Bethesda,” is Aramaic. It means “House of Mercy”, “House of Grace”, or “House of Love”, and it is also a place where “a great number of disabled people used to lay; the blind, the lame, the paralyzed” (John 5:3). The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos Nigeria is called by many as “Arena of Liberty”, also having this same dual meaning, being regarded by some as a place where the infirm, the sick, the invalids, come seeking from Jesus. SCOAN is also a place of Grace where many receive healing, deliverance, the new life and freedom.

In the case of Bethesda legend had it that an angel would come down into the pool and “stir up the water.” According to the legend, the first person into the pool after the stirring of the water “was made well from whatever disease with which he or she was afflicted” (John 5:4). The Bible does not teach that this actually happened; rather, the superstitious belief probably arose because of the pool’s association with the nearby temple.

On the day that Jesus visited this public pool of Bethesda, there was a man there, possibly amongst scores of others, and he “had been an invalid for thirty-eight years” (John 5:5). Jesus interacted with him twice, before his physical healing at the public pool and afterwards in the temple. Jesus asked the man “Do you want to be healed?” Jesus knew that not every sick person would want to be healed, and that some could be so discouraged that they put away all hope. Jesus was dealing with a man who might have his heart withered as well as his legs. Hence Jesus started by building up the faith of this man. The man replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred, (verse 7). He was probably saying to himself, “if only I was able enough, fast enough, strong enough, have someone else to help me then I could have been healed”. Or he was basically saying, “Yes, I want to be made well, but I don’t see how this can happen”. The paralytic was in need of saving but there beside him was the Saviour of all mankind. When Jesus spoke to him, he heard the word of a mere man whilst he kept gazing at Bethesda for superstitious healing, expecting healing by work and not by faith or by grace.

Jesus swept aside all superstition and bypassed altogether the need for magic water with one command: “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk” (verse 8). The man was instantly cured, and “he picked up his mat and walked” (verse 9). The sick man limited God’s help to his own ideas and did not dare promise himself more than he conceived in his mind. We create a small God in our heads, a God who is limited by whatever box we try to put Him into, a God we limit by what we have heard, out thoughts, or what we read in the newspapers.

Amazingly, not everyone was happy about the man’s miraculous healing. The day Jesus healed the man at the poolside happened to be a Sabbath. As the man left Bethesda, the Jewish leaders saw him only carrying his mat and didn’t see him walking and healed. They stopped him. “It is the Sabbath,” they said. “The law forbids you to carry your mat” (verse 10). The man told them that he was simply obeying orders. The man who made me well said to me, “Pick up your mat and walk” (verse 11). The Jews inquired who would so brazenly promote Law-breaking, but the man who was healed had no idea who He was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd, (verse 13). The contrary men of the world see only criticism and not the healing, or the changed life, or the restored sanity. The reaction of the Jewish leaders shows that, no matter how much proof God provides, there will be some people who refuse to see the truth. Jesus was an awesome Miracle Worker, but the religious leaders couldn’t see the miracle. All they could see was that someone had violated a rule. The issue was not the breaking of God’s command, for Jesus fulfilled all the Law and was completely subject to it (Matthew 5:17). The only thing being broken was a pharisaical interpretation of one of God’s laws. Therefore, a blessing meant to increase faith only increased the blindness of those who refused to acknowledge the blessing.

Jesus knew that the man who was physically healed still needed some spiritual healing. In fact, the religious leaders would have created more confusion, doubts and more unbelief in him. Just like in our days sponsored oppositions keep discouraging many not to visit SCOAN and be healed or to come and know more about Jesus. Hence Jesus traced him to the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you” (verse 14). Jesus’ words are a rebuke of unnamed sin. The man was probably living contrary to God’s will somehow and he received a warning of “something worse.” What could be worse than thirty-eight years of paralysis? May be an eternity in hell (see Mark 9:47). Thus Jesus healed him both physically and spiritually.

The Bible listed a few of the people fortunate to have this same direct encounter with the Lord Jesus for our benefit. Jesus healed people and told them, “Your faith has made you well”. He healed 10 lepers (Luke 1:11-19), the woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20-22), a blind man (Mark10: 46-52). In this particular case, it was at Jesus’ compassion. Other cases of people who encountered Jesus include the twelve apostles, Nicodemus (John 3), the woman at Jacob’s well in the town of Samaria called Sychar (John 4), Mary and Martha (John 11), the Apostle Paul on his way to Damascus, and many others. An encounter with Jesus would often not be exactly what we expect but it will bring out our true needs, revealing who we truly are, get to the true heart of the issues and sending us out to the field to tell others all about Jesus. Jesus will be known for Whom He truly is, The Son of God, The Messiah of the world, the Prophet of the world, the Spring of Living Water. This is how SCOAN is changing lives and changing nations by leading people to have an encounter with Jesus so that we are both physically and spiritually healed. Emmanuel

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

Walking by Faith with Jesus and Be on God’s Side

tb joshua, scoan

In (2 Corinthians 5:7) Apostle Paul encouraged the Corinthians that “We walk by FAITH, not by SIGHT.” The desire and plan of God for each of us is “how to disciple us to learn how to live by faith, not by sight”. God wants us to learn how to live in a loving relationship with Him, to recognize His voice and commune with Him, to discover His will for our lives, to make right decisions to follow His direction and to live out His perfect plan demonstrated to us in His only Son, Jesus Christ. Hence walking by faith is simply being where God is and doing what God is doing. It is necessary to learn how to walk by faith, not by sight, because, “whatever is not of faith is sin,” (Rom. 14:23), and also because, ”without faith, it is impossible to please God,” (Heb. 11:6).

The public may not understand fully what God is doing, especially in the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria. The carnal man is walking by sight alone, or the natural man is being controlled by sight, and not by faith. Even to receive from God through the Ministries of SCOAN, or from the Bishop of SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua, individual needs to come and exercising faith in Jesus Christ and His Word. Therefore walking by faith, (and not by sight alone) with Jesus in this pilgrim way is a continuous process for every degree of Christians. Walking by sight means to depend on human sufficiency, human wisdom, human ingenuity, human calculation, and so on. Whereas walking by faith means depending on Christ’s sufficiency, Christ’s wisdom, His power, His direction, and His enablement. ”It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man”, (Psalms 118:8).

The people walking with God by faith are on the Lord’s side. For example, in the wilderness the people of Israel departed God to worship a golden calf they fashioned for themselves whilst Moses was on the Mount. After reproving with that guilty nation, Moses called out, “Who is on the Lord’s side?” When we walk away from God we become God’s adversary and no longer on the Lord’s side. In this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic SCOAN has been reaching out to every corner of the globe offering prayers and healing to people in their homes or kept in isolation centres. The same hand of fellowship is still being stretched out by SCOAN to every people in isolation centres including to Nigeria, Prophet TB Joshua’s homeland. But it’s only a few people walking in the spirit by faith that would see that the Right hand of God is Power and that it can save, it delivers and it can heal. It seems that Nigeria is not only infected by a multitude of religious sects it is also infected by divisions within sects, between sects, and with people walking only by sight. Many believe more on what they can see, touch, whatever they read, and many think of God as One to be on their side. Rather it is that the name of the Lord is a strong Protective Tower and the righteous runs there for salvation. Take the step now and run to God’s side for protection, healing and deliverance.

Fortunately for Nigeria, and according to the official figures from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, Nigeria Covid-19 update as at 2 September 2020 indicates a total of 54439 confirmed infection cases, 42439 recovered cases and 1027 deaths. This gives a death rate of those with outcomes to be 2.4%, and net active cases 10973. From the position of science, this is an encouraging update with no major course for further alarm, the curve is turning. Hence the public will have the false impression not to be in a hurry calling out people in isolation centres, (almost empty centres), to any prayer line. But from the spirit, and even if there is no single active case in the land, Jesus is saying after our healing “to go and sin no more”. He is also encouraging us that if COVID-19 hasn’t condemned us to death Jesus hasn’t either. It is not Jesus that condemns but our sins, our selfish desires, our weaknesses and our inability to walk by faith with God.

Coronavirus Maybe Only the Tip of the Iceberg for the Era of Humility

TB Joshua, SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

With the advent of COVID-19 pandemic, many Christian sects are predicting that the end of the world is at hand. Of course, Christian prophecies about the coronavirus, about locust swarms, about a socioeconomic pandemic, or the consequent era of humility are worthy of attention. Prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria, has spent considerable time drawing the attention of the world to what God has been showing to him. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has infected more than 25 million people globally since it emerged and has been branded a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Several conspiracy theorists and some Christian groups have responded by flooding social media in recent months with their versions of warnings of the world’s fiery demise. Hence both Christians and world scientists believe that they have a say on world affairs, especially as relates to the end-time plagues. Nevertheless, there is still no convergence of opinions so far but that the coronavirus shouldn’t be viewed as the end-time plague. The giant swarms of locusts which are also devastating, extremely unusual storms, earthquake and volcanic activity are both on the rise, and other very dangerous diseases that are sweeping across the globe are referred to as other signs that are confounding human knowledge.

The situation which Prophet Habakkuk faced in his time was the imminent invasion of the Southern Kingdom of Judah by the Babylonians, also known as the Chaldeans. This invasion eventually happened and Jerusalem fell to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The Lord revealed to Habakkuk beforehand that Judah was going to be punished for her sin by the Chaldeans. Unlike prophets Joel, Zephaniah or Amos, Habakkuk did not even mention the possibility that destruction could be averted by repentance. He did not call for national repentance. It was too late. Instead, he predicted the destruction of Judah, and beyond that the doom of the Chaldeans themselves. Prophet Habakkuk promised that the only way to preserve our life through the judgment was by faith. Hence, even though destruction is decreed for all the nations of the world now, there is hope for individuals who hold fast their confidence in God. The full-blown doctrine of justification by faith, taught by Apostle Paul in Romans and Galatians, is the seed here and for our instruction. The just (righteous, faithful, true and obedient follower of Jesus) shall live by faith. There is hope for those who will hold firm their trust in God as the calamity comes, COVID-19 or otherwise.

Prophet TB Joshua’s measuring instrument of the just, the righteous, the true obedient servant of Jesus is in his or her degree of “letting go any offence, then constant meditation on the Word, and praying without ceasing”. The world is truly passing through a big storm and uncharted terrain but there is hope for those who will hold firm to their unshaken faith in Christ Jesus. We have two messages from Prophet Habakkuk. The first message is that proud person, people whose strength or ingenuity is their god (Habakkuk 1:11, 16, 2: 4, 19), will come to a woeful end, even though they may enjoy prosperity for a season either as God’s chosen ones in Judah or as the victors over Judah. All the proud, whether they are Jew or Gentile, men or women, they will perish in the unending ongoing judgment of God. The second message of Prophet Habakkuk is that the just shall live by his faith as a principle (Habakkuk 2:4). Finally, the prophet celebrates it as his song in (Habakkuk 3:16–19). Prophet Habakkuk says, “Even when all the fruit and produce and flocks and herds are destroyed and my very life is threatened, yet will I rejoice in God.” Hence banking our hope on God no matter what and all shall be well.

Known by Love and not by the Multitude of Persecutors

tb joshua ministry

The entire State of Israel is called “the Holy Land” probably because of many prophets that God raised from that Land, because of God’s Promise to Abraham through to David, to Jesus of Nazareth, or the tombs of many prophets adorning the State. We think the State of Israel should be called the Holy Land because of people walking in the footsteps of Jesus of Nazareth. Nevertheless, in June 2019, the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) met in Nazareth for an International Crusade that was led by its Bishop, Prophet TB Joshua. It is only men like Prophet TB Joshua that could have countered the different classes of opposition that erupted aiming to prevent the International Crusade from holding. It was a highly organized opposition that faced the crusade because of the person of TB Joshua, not just because he was coming from Nigeria or Africa. Openly they called Prophet TB Joshua, and the entire SCOAN team, many unprintable names. By now we had expected Christians or none Christians to have known Prophet TB Joshua or some of the numerous people working with SCOAN. The Nazareth event nevertheless unearthed the experience of our Lord and Saviour Jesus of Nazareth. We know that Jesus would have been provoked beyond measure before He spoke to those who were wrong, but thought that they were right, when He said to them, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous . . . Serpents, a brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, that on you may come all the righteous bloodshed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. . . (Matthew 23:29-37). On the contrary, Prophet TB Joshua was able to promote Jesus Christ of Nazareth, he promoted peace and love to the different peoples of the State of Israel and peoples of over 100 nationalities that went. It was glorious.

Jesus told His disciples in (John 1518-21) that “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you . . . If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake because they do not know Him who sent Me. Apostle Peter also said, “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified”, (1 Peter: 12-14).

Therefore, who are prophets of God of our days and how do we recognize them? It is too cheap and lazy labelling everyone as false. In Philippians Chapter 4 the Bible teaches us to “Beware of false teachers, false prophets, false bishops, etc.” This warning is cardinal to every people looking for the second coming of Jesus in an era where greedy and self-promotion rule. God’s Spirit specifically tells us that in later days there will be men who abandon the true faith and allow themselves to be spiritually seduced by teachings of the devil, teachings given by men who are hypocrites, whose consciences are as dead as seared flesh. Of course, anyone will be doing its right duty as Christ’s minister if they remind their church members of these things (false teaching), and also prove themselves as ministers who owe their strength to the truth of the faith in Christ Jesus, living by His Spirit and His Word only. Every Christian should take time and trouble to keep self spiritually fit, and especially avoiding ideas, philosophies, and teachings contrary to Jesus and His teaching. Jesus said in (Matthew 16) that, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?” By their love, we shall know them. Prophet TB Joshua said repeatedly that whatever we do in secret will reflect in the open and determining how much we can achieve in the name of Jesus. Jesus said His Words are “Spirit and Life”. This Word of Jesus is close to His Prophets, even in their mouths, in their hearts, that is the Word of faith which they preach every day, (Romans 10:8). This Word spoken to us by Jesus makes us and His prophets clean (John 15:3). Motivational speakers may draw large crowds because they speak sweet words. Even if they are incantations such words would not produce godly outcomes at the end.

This generation is most likely passing through the said last days, the very perilous times Apostle Paul was telling Timothy (2 Timothy 3:1-7). Whilst every Christian should be on the watch for “Jesus’ Coming” because our Lord is coming, it should be pointed out that Jesus loves His Church and therefore will not deny us of His true Godly Teachers, Prophets, Bishops, Church Workers, and the Holy Spirit for the propagation of complete sound doctrine for our salvation. However, amongst these may also be the false ones. The parable of the “Wheat and the Tares” can be found in (Matthew 13:2-30). Jesus said, “But when men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way”, (Matthew 13:25). Therefore every congregation is likely to be infected by these false teachings, false prophecies, false claims and people falsely accusing others but never able to correct themselves. Their zeal, driven by jealousy, greed and ignorance, is of the flesh and not from the Spirit of God. Emmanuel

TB Joshua Meeting in Nazareth – Day One

Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua has released a documentary on YouTube detailing the ‘persecution’ he endured during his visit to Nazareth, Israel last year followed by a national award presented to him by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism in the aftermath of the event.

In June 2019, Joshua held a two-day event in the historic hometown of Jesus Christ, which attracted thousands of religious tourists from across the globe.

However, the event held at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice was fiercely criticised by local religious figures and nearly faced cancellation due to the intensity of attacks.

“This man is only promoting lies, and anyone who follows this liar is unjust. That is why we ban our people from attending,” a representative for the Christian Church and Pastoral Council in Nazareth stated in the lead-up to the event.

“This visit that is going to be held by this antichrist and wizard – we, the Islamic movement – completely reject it,” noted Osama Haha, the head of Islamic Movement in Nazareth.

“Jesus warned us there would be false prophets coming. We do not know where this man is coming from or the purpose behind everything he does,” stated Father Seaan Bajali, a Roman Orthodox Priest.

“Boycotting the sorcerer Zionist is a national and religious duty,” the Executive Committee of the Orthodox Forum said in a statement.

A protest was even organized with hundreds trouncing through the city in Northern Israel with placards decrying the coming event and people shouting: “Let this witch get away from us!”

Despite the ‘noise’ surrounding the event, it was held successfully with Joshua preaching a message on love and ministering “healing and deliverance in Jesus’ name” to the large crowds that gathered.

“Love for fellow man breaks down all barriers. It melts all hindrances. It dissolves prejudice, misunderstanding and suspicion,” he preached in a sermon whilst a local mosque blared out via a loud speaker, “Do not participate with this wizard.”

A group of religious figures even visited the venue of Mount Precipice after the event and performed a ‘cleansing ritual’ with water, leaves and salt.

However, interviews with local figures after the event revealed a markedly different impression, with residents celebrating the economic and social impact of Joshua’s visit to the region and calling for him to return for future events.

“This is the first time in 2,000 years we have heard the name of Jesus proclaimed publicly in Nazareth,” stated a tearful Nazarene Christian.

The event, which was broadcast on local television throughout Israel and featured in The New York Times and Reuters, subsequently attracted the attention of Israel’s Ministry of Tourism, which gave an award to the Nigerian cleric and made him a ‘Tourism Ambassador’.

“TB Joshua, on the occasion of your visit to Israel, I am honoured to recognise you as a true friend of Israel. Thank you for your support and solidarity, which are deeply appreciated. It is my pleasure to name you as a ‘Tourism Goodwill Ambassador For Israel’,” wrote Yariv Levin, the Minister of Tourism.

“You only need to hear ‘Go!’ from above. Who are you to say no? When God says yes, no one can say no! The noise of north and south, the noise of east and west does not matter. It only promotes,” Joshua explained in an interview accompanying the documentary.

Joshua is the first ‘Evangelical Pastor’ to have held a public Christian event in Nazareth; the only other religious figure to have had such an event was Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.

Reacting to the documentary, followers of Joshua were quick to salute his courage, opining that such degree of attacks would easily discourage those of lesser faith.

“It depends on who sent you,” the prominent cleric concluded. “Above all powers; above all kings. What can man do? Can man stop God? No. Capital NO!”

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

SCOAN Team are Praying for You

tb joshua, scoan

Prophet TB Joshua

Apostle Paul said in (Romans 1:9), “For God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the Gospel of His Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you always in my prayers”. Similarly, this Thursday, August 13, 2020, I was fortunate to receive a call from the man in SCOAN and his last encouraging words to me in the brief call was “We are praying for you”. It is a spirit-lifting moment knowing that you are not alone, that Prophet TB Joshua or his team in SCOAN is praying for you. In this COVID-19 pandemic era, we all need to keep praying for each other the more. Since the congregation worship has been limited by COVID-19 many families have been affected in different levels, and not just by COVID-19. Some of the challenges confronting Christians this pandemic era include disunity, lack of caring for each other regarding safety, isolation, or stress. But SCOAN is praying for you.

In hard times like this, not every pastor can be a certified public therapist when it comes to comforting others. But we’d watched the team in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, how effectively they manage to bring smiles back to people in difficult and impossible circumstances across the globe. They offer effectual prayers that bring healing, deliverance, hope, renewed strength, increased faith and comfort. So when someone you know experiences a bad day, especially a loss of someone dear to them or a tragedy, how do you know what to say? Remember that the loss of a son may be different from the loss of a father, the loss of a wife different from the loss of a mother or grandmother, and so on. Pray for them and whenever you have the opportunity to tell them that, “I’m praying for you”.

We have to learn to say appropriately that, “I’m Praying for You and Your Family”, “I’m Praying for You” to a loved one, “I’m Praying for You” to a total stranger or acquaintance, or a fellowship group. Though telling someone that we’re praying for them may sound like the best option, but perhaps it won’t cut it. Maybe the person we are comforting doesn’t relate well to prayer. The Holy Spirit will give us other ways to extend comfort in not so many words. God’s Word says we can have confidence that when we pray, He hears us and we have the petitions we desire of Him. The only requirement is that those petitions must be made by His will for our lives. The question becomes, “How do we know His will?” The answer is simple. His will is in His Word which is the Bible. Hence we should pray what the Bible says and the Holy Spirit will help us to pray aright for people in their different situations. We should always also pray for Prophet TB Joshua, the entirely SCOAN team and individually.

The “effectual fervent prayer” is the energizing power similar to an electrical current that brings energy to a circuit. It is a passionate prayer, a heartfelt and persistent prayer. It’s a prayer driven by faith, love and total trust in God to do what only He can do for us or the persons being prayed for. The Amplified Bible, renders it another especially illuminating way, “The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available {dynamic in its working}” (James 5:16). This kind of prayer is quite the opposite of a lethargic, repetitious or superficial type. Whilst it’s passionate, it is not merely whipping up emotions, or generating exciting sounds or putting together a certain set of words, but rather expressing intense sincere confidence in God.

Interestingly, when the Holy Spirit inspired James to illustrate such prayer, he chose Prophet Elijah, whose prayers God had used to demonstrate His mighty power. “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit” (James 5:16-18). James’ point is that, although Prophet Elijah’s mighty prayers and exploits were legendary, Elijah was also a man of frailties and flaws like us. Thus, James’ message is clear. If God could hear and answer the passionate faith-filled prayers of Elijah, “a common man with a nature like ours,” He can likewise hear and answer our prayers too. The Lord is eager to answer the effectual, fervent prayers of ordinary, but righteous followers of Jesus Christ. Emmanuel

Flee From the Coming Wrath of God Now that You Can

tb joshua

Prophet T.B. JOSHUA scoanonlineservices@gmail.com

When John the Baptist saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?” (Matthew 3:7). For John the Baptist to have addressed the Pharisees and Sadducees this harsh way indicates that the prophet was ready to pierce them with the true sword of the Spirit and not just to show them only its handle. Many a minister of our days would probably be looking for more disciples, for more tithe payers, and therefore ordinarily adopt milder language than that, choosing more attractive themes, fearing that they will drive their listeners away if they are too personal, and speak too harshly. They let people see only the bright diamonds, silver, or gold on the scabbard, but never let them feel the sharpness of the two-edged blade. They always comfort, and console, and cheer, they are motivational speakers, but never allude to the terrors of the Lord. John the Baptist was bold throughout his ministry as a forerunner of the Lord Jesus Christ, for which he was born. John requests each of us to come up with true evidence that we’re a born again child of God, daily walking with Jesus.

It should be noted that a Pharisee, is a very religious man, one who observes all the details of external worship, and is very careful even about the most trivial matter. He is a firm believer in the resurrection, in angels and spirits, and in all that was written in the Book of the Law of Moses, and also in all the traditions of his father. He is a man consumed with external righteousness, a ritualist of the first order, who feels that, if there was a righteous man in the world, he certainly would be that person. He must have been greatly taken aback when John talked to him about the wrath of God and told him that that wrath was as much for him as for others. No self-righteousness would screen anyone from the anger of God against injustice, lawlessness, idolatry, and all forms of transgression except we “flee from the coming wrath of God.”

On the other hand, we have the Sadducee who was equally taken aback by John’s stern language. A Sadducee is also a religious man, but he combines with his religion greater thoughtfulness than the Pharisee does. He does not believe in traditions, he is too broadminded to care about the little details and externals of religion. He observes the Law of Moses, but he clings rather to the letter of it rather than to its spirit, and he does not accept all that is revealed, for he denies that there is such a thing as an angel, a spirit or a resurrection. He is a man of liberal ideas, fully abreast of the age. He professes to be a Hebrew of the Hebrews but yet, at the same time, the yoke of religion rests very lightly upon his shoulders. He is not irreligious but here is John the Baptist talking to him, as well as to the Pharisee, about “the coming wrath for which everyone must flee.”

Fleeing from the coming wrath of God now that we still can is what Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), has as the “Year of Humility” coming upon humanity. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31). It is not just a prophecy anymore but that it has come. In God’s order of time a year may run for a thousand years our own, or one year our own a thousand years of God’s acts could take place. A “Year of Humility” is just a description and God determines its actual length, breadth, width and overall impact; but the prophet said that “everyone will be humbled to the core” Hence let us think of the danger which overtakes all men who do not flee from it. There is a wrath of God, which remains on every ungodly man. Whether we like that truth or not it is written, “God is a righteous judge, a God who expresses His wrath every day” (Psalm 7:11) and, also, “Whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son” (John 3:18). Yet again, “Whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him” (John 3:36).

John the Baptist said to the Pharisees and Sadducees, “Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?” What our prophet is telling us is that we cannot bear nor endure God’s wrath but we must flee from it. What does this mean? How do we flee from the coming wrath? Yes, we must escape. If we remain where we are now, we will certainly perish because we are living in the City of Destruction, a Condemned City which is about to be overwhelmed with the fiery flood of “the coming wrath.” We must be desperate to escape immediately from it before judgment is executed on the place and on everyone who is in it. John the Baptist said that there is no going to Heaven by following the road leading to Hell Avenue therefore there must be a turn back, repentance. Note how John puts it; “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance” (Matthew 3:8). The evidence of true repentance is a new life in Christ Jesus.

Covid-19 has already humbled the entire world, infecting millions, will eventually also kill in millions, creating joblessness and economic pandemic in its waves. But that’s not what John the Baptist is telling us because Jesus tells us whom to fear more. In (Matthew 10:28) Jesus said, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which can destroy both soul and body in hell”. Therefore the humility will come in multiple dimension except we truly bear fruit of repentance.<a href=”https://www.websquash.com”>Get SEO Backlinks</a>

Already we are amazed, not just about the prophecies coming out of SCOAN and their fulfilments, but much more about their corresponding dynamic step in Faith reaching out to nations for healing and deliverance. Jesus is thus being greatly honoured whilst science and humanity are being humbled. The “Distance not a Barrier to the Move of God” by SCOAN is beyond academic research and human wisdom which mustn’t be taken lightly. In the new normal, where everyone is humbled in a facemask, social distancing or kept in isolation centres we look to Jesus to set us free. This is where Prophet TB Joshua and his team will continue to provide a spiritual lead and guidance as God will direct them. Emmanuel

Church Reopening After Covid-19

Coronavirus, tb joshua, scoan, faith healing

Coronavirus

The unfortunate interference of COVID-19 into public life has effectively shifted all public conversations around COVID-19. It has affected the way people gather to worship in mega Churches like the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN. Hence it is time to start thinking about what will happen when we reopen the church, as announced by state governors, even when COVID-19 is still circulating. We’re not heading back to the way things used to be rather it is going to be a new chapter after what we’ve learned from the pandemic. Nevertheless, we’re so comfortable with the leadership in SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, where the Bishop, Prophet TB Joshua has said he is waiting for a divine order in reopening, when to reopen, how to reopen, how to meet government-set COVID-19 protocol and how to minister to people’s need.

The Church of Christ will continue to render unto Ceaser the things of Ceaser’s and to God the things that belong to God. Observing the regulations set out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) will be built into the reopening arrangement, with its extra demand on Church administration. There are no two authorities in this realm but from the beginning, it is the NCDC that seems not to accept that the Church has any authority. It seemingly believes it may close down worship places without formal notice or dialogue simply because it has a large portion of the social media. Today many citizens of different societies believe in God, and by extension believe their religious leaders, more than their governments. There is a good story in (Matthew 17:24-27) when the people of Capernaum came up to Jesus asking for his tax. They came to Peter, and said, “Doth not your master pay tribute?” Peter answered, “Yes”. Peter went to Jesus and Jesus said to Peter, “… go thou to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee”. This is what God will do in SCOAN. Even the tap water at the entrance of SCOAN premises will clean people of their entire ailment by the special grace of God. We only have to deflate people’s heightened expectations, making them work more on their faith and holiness to see Jesus the Healer.

As Prophet TB Joshua prepares his team for a harvest of souls, this fearful pandemic era, we believe that God shall guide him on what is more essential and what is less essential in canonical worship. If there was any way to advise the government or its agencies like NCDC, it is that government must work for and with her people rather than simply arresting and condemning perceived COVID-19 offenders. The government must work with their institutions and the Church of Christ, not in a political setting but as God’s resource centres for the respective nation. The Church, especially SCOAN, is doing great for the public, praying for them and rehabilitating them as needed. Emmanuel.

The Battle isn’t Against Fellow Human Beings

scoan, tb Joshua

Our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms, (Ephesians 6:12). It is a continuous battle for every Christian, day and night, but the battle is rather with the perception of our circumstance and the material world. The circumstance shouldn’t be the focus, COVID-19 isn’t the focus. Apostle Paul says we need to be strong beyond ourselves. We’ll need God’s strength for the conflict. It means that as Christians we are soldiers at war just like a regular soldier in the battlefield.

In that daily encounter we find Proverbs 3:5-6 saying, “Trust in the LORD with all thy heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”. The divine intervention is needed against the unseen enemy described as a roaring lion seeking who it may devour. But again Paul in Romans (8:38-39) tells us that “. . . neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

Case after case of events Jesus, the King of kings, demonstrated His authority over disease, nature, demons, sin, over space and time, and authority over death. Jesus did everything to ensure our salvation and freedom from principalities and power according to Colossians (2:13-17). Whereas we’d been dead in sins and uncircumcised flesh, but Jesus has quickened us together with Himself. He has forgiven all our trespasses by taking them out of the way, nailing them to His cross. Jesus destroyed the principalities and powers, triumphing over them and He sets us free from tradition and culture.

This is where Prophet TB Joshua and his team in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, becomes relevant. Their mission is to evangelize the world on Jesus’ teaching and His Word, making everyone to have the right perception irrespective of circumstances. They teach that some seemingly unfriendly circumstances may be to draw people nearer to God. Therefore a circumstance like COVID-19 pandemic shouldn’t constitute the real enemy but our perception. This, for example, the brethren in SCOAN are demonstrating to the entire world in multiple ways using “Distance not a Barrier to the Move of God” and praying for people. We recall that in (Matthew 8) a centurion came to Jesus on behalf of his paralyzed servant. The emphasis in that story is on the power of the Word of the Lord that goes to any distance with equal power, that by Jesus’ command the sick were healed. Another lesson is the faith of the centurion, a gentile. In particular, communities that can place their trust and faith in Jesus Christ’s healing power like this centurion (Matthew 8:8) should link its entire people in their isolation centres, in a corporate faith, to SCOAN for Jesus’ healing. Jesus heals effectually and permanently. A vaccine, medicine, food, exercise can be used to treat but its God that heals ultimately.

The word of Naaman’s maid in 2 Kings Chapter 5 is very relevant here. The young Israelite taking forcefully to serve as a maid in Syria knew her God and said to her mistress, “. . . Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! For he would recover him of his leprosy” (v.3). The maid’s perceived incarceration didn’t deter her from recommending the God of Israel to her captors and masters. Just as when Joshua stood before the angel of the Lord in a filthy garment, (Zechariah 3:3), the young maid knew that her master was in a filthy garment of leprosy. It means Naaman was covered in iniquity that needed to be changed. We all wear a spiritual garment which is not visible and can either be clean or unclean. The garment speaks or describes a lot about who we are in the spirit realm. When our spiritual garment is filthy, it means our spirit in the spiritual realm is polluted or defiled due to sin. Also, the enemy can put a filthy garment upon one’s life to destroy the spiritual and the person, preventing the spiritual ability to achieve or fulfil preordained destiny. Covid-19 is currently the global filthy garment the devil is distributing around. Nobody needs to accept this COVID-19 garment nor wear it.

By the special grace of God in Jesus Christ, our generation also has a prophet in SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria, not only to help us deal with our infirmities or help to remove filthy garments but also to help us see God the right way. The Holy Spirit of God shall give the enlightenment and nations shall perceive by the spirit the needed divine guidance. The apostles of Jesus of old knew Jesus and the Holy Ghost. They knew they hadn’t silver nor gold (Acts 3:6) but what they had would make a 40 years old lame man walking and leaping. Those apostles were baptised and filled with the Holy Ghost. Similar prophet TB Joshua knows Jesus and he is filled with the Holy Ghost. Communities and nations approaching the SCOAN should have faith that they will meet Jesus. We stand as the maid who recommended Naaman to Prophet Elisha and Naaman was healed from wearing a filthy garment of leprosy. The battle is essentially our perception in the natural and inability to see and believe the mighty name of Jesus Christ that heals. Jesus is the Saviour and Redeemer of the whole world. He is still healing, delivering, and replacing any filthy garments with heavenly attires if we come to Him. 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.

Contact scoanonlineservices@gmail.com for your anointed morning water package delivery.

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

Egypt – Ethiopia Tension: It Is Time For TB Joshua To Get Involve

The colossal dam that’s being constructed by the Ethiopians has continued to generate tension between them and their Egyptian and Sudanese neighbours. Which many fear could lead to war.

The leadership of Ethiopia says that the dam will offer a critical opportunity to pull millions of her nearly 110 million citizens out of poverty. The project is said to be the centrepiece of Ethiopia’s bid to become Africa’s biggest power exporter.

The dam will be filled from waters from the Blue Nile, but the Egyptians have expressed their concern over the dam’s construction and the filling of the dam with the water from the Nile, arguing that it will reduce its legitimate share of Nile river water access and threaten its water security.

Sudan on their part stands to benefit from the project through access to cheap electricity and reduced flooding, but it has also raised fears over the dam’s operation.

The US President Donald Trump had invited Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia to start negotiations in Washington over the $4.6bn Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), following years of unsuccessful negotiations between the three countries. Unfortunately, they still could not come to a common ground.

Egypt has warned Ethiopia not to start filling the GERD under any circumstances, but the latest information coming out is that Ethiopia has started filling the dam. This move by Ethiopia comes as the latest round of talks between Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia on the contentious dam ended with no agreement.

As the Prophet will say “Let us look beyond our palace for God’s authority. With God, all things are possible!”

Since the world government and their institutions cannot handle this issue, it is time for all parties involved to seek the help of God through the instrumentality of the Prophet T.B Joshua for a lasting solution.

TB Joshua has proven himself time without numbers through his intervention on several conflicts in the African continent and the world.

As of recent, the world was a witness to how God uses the Prophet to intervene as an instrument of peace in the nation of South Sudan.

It is time to invite the Prophet of God in the peace negotiation through the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN) concerning the Blue Nile conflicts.

Voice of wisdom to the Egyptians, Sudanese and the Ethiopians.

Don’t fall for the evil agenda from the outsiders to cause you to fight amongst yourself. Be wise!

This battle is all about African pride and prosperity. And I don’t think anyone of you is against the prosperity of the other.

War will not benefit anyone. Don’t make yourself to be used by the outsiders to divide the continent and put you all against each other. Learn from your History!

Laying down your ego for the sake of peace is not diminishing. Restraint in the face of provocation only shows your level of maturity.

This is a simple issue that can be handled by God.

Africa is a Mother of peace and prosperity. Not crisis and poverty. Come together as brothers, learn to compromise and see how you can be a solution and of help to each other. Let Love Lead!

Secret Deeds Determine How We Use the Name of Jesus in the Open

In one of his many teachings, repeatedly broadcast on Emmanuel.tv, Prophet TB Joshua said, “What we do privately in secret would determine what we could achieve in the name of Jesus in the open”. This statement has a profound impression on many viewers, especially those wondering why their own, “Be Healed in the Name of Jesus”, has not produced the expected effect. What we do privately and secretly could hold the key to whether or not we can invoke the mighty name of Jesus Christ in our favour. What’s done in darkness will come to light as success or failure. Instead of flying from one planet to another we may keep crawling and struggling from a single point to another. The common testimony remains, “I am trying to follow Jesus but I am failing. I believe, help my unbelief.”

The unfolding events around us and in many churches all over the world reveal this reality and why there is unbelief, envy, chaos and feebleness in the Church today. We see our history, our past blunders and mistakes, unforgiving spirits, inability to let go the past, occultism and idolatry, common willful sins, all littering the different hearts and consequently in the ministries meant to proclaim Jesus. This truth and operational principle declare and forces all secret things to eventually come to light. The question is not if things will come to the light but when or how? Unfortunately, our weaknesses are coming up to hunt us due to the inability to claim our divine rights in Christ Jesus. In Genesis 4, God says to Cain, “Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” Even Abel’s blood is shouting out this principle for us to understand that a Cain may no longer enjoy fellowship nor power with God.

If the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) must change people, nations and the entire world it has to change the common perception of every class of people in the Church. The symbol of our success must remain “Wearing the Garment of Holiness and be in the fullness of the Holy Spirit”. If for a positive result we must ask “According to His will” we may also ask first that, “What is His will?” That there is power in our mouth, the belief in our heart, released through our mouth by faith? This authority and power, in the name of Jesus, go hand in hand through meditation in His Word. The World must key into the recent prophetic word from Prophet TB Joshua that the “Ministry of Distance is not a Barrier” can be an “International Zoom Crusade for Healing, Deliverance and to Promoting Jesus Christ”.

The carnal world is expecting a scientific code, a sign, or healing and deliverance that would not need it to go through the name of Jesus or faith in Him. The world wants to do without Jesus. Although for us Jesus is our Product, our own Jesus is not for sale in SCOAN. Whilst there is no biblical code that can be invoked in exchange to our faith and holy living in Christ Jesus, the Bible, emphasized by our prophet, teaches on what is more essential to our successful walk with Jesus. The Lord Jesus and His Word must be at the centre of our living because if the Lord doesn’t build the house our work would be in vain. There is also a necessity to be diligent in our work because lazy people always want things but they never get them. Yet everyone has been given talents equal to their abilities and destined functions. If anyone refuses to use given talents such talents may be lost. The prophet has taught extensively too that we should always be willing to give freely in love to gain more; Casting our bread upon the waters to find it in multiples after many days. Those who refuse to give will end up having less and piling up unheard and unanswered prayers. In (1 Kings 3:1) we read, “…He (King Solomon) was wiser than all men…” This wisdom he exercised in many ways beside leadership. King Solomon surpassed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom, (2 Chronicles 9:22). World leaders must learn from the Wisdom of Solomon and come to Jesus, so that daily informed decisions can be taken.

Being in a state of mere physical darkness is probably not what the prophet is referring to. Many Christians create a state of physical darkness during prayer or meditation by closing the eyes so that other senses of the body could be made to work better. The physical sight can be deceiving, tempting us to believe only what we can see with the eyes. Right now the entire world is only seeing the global statistics of COVID-19 and its fearful forecasts. Whereas the spiritual eyes have unlimited meditation power and undistracted by what the environment dictates; the prophet might have seen many days ahead of COVID-19. The visual sense blinds other senses of the body making us believe in only what is visible, but when we blind it our faith should grow and we have improved concentration. Similarly our secret and private life, if spent on meditation on the Word and not what our circumstance suggests, would produce enough faith upon which the power of God can be released rather than a result of some academic exercise. The Lord Jesus is always true to His word when He said that “We would receive whatever we ask for in His name”.

Therefore, despite the prevailing global carnality, diversity in faith, a form of International Crusade by Zoom should be supported as we pray along with Prophet TB Joshua and his team. With prophets the standing of TB Joshua Revelation 1:7, “Behold, He (Jesus) is coming with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him”, becomes so near and a reality. Jesus described what people will be doing at such a time: “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day the Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Emmanuel

I am Ready to Pray For COVID-19 Patients in Isolation Centres – TB JOSHUA

Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua has signalled his readiness to virtually offer prayers for COVID-19 patients in isolation centres around the world.

In a special announcement posted to Joshua’s YouTube channel Emmanuel TV, the cleric called on relevant government and medical authorities to “organise those who are in isolation” and “arrange how to connect them to us on Emmanuel TV”.

“The blessing of Jesus is for those who knock and ask,” the announcement began. “In whatever way you support to make this happen, we are a team; we are not doing more than you,” it added.

“Together we shall pray for them. Together we shall be set free from this COVID-19,” the statement continued, quoting the Biblical reference in Luke 4:40 where Jesus healed “all who had various kinds of sickness after the mass prayer.”

“The same anointing that heals one is also able to heal all at the same time,” it concluded, calling on all interested parties to contact the church via their email address info@emmanuel.tv.

Last week, the World Health Organisation reacted to a trending video in which a Cameroonian medical doctor was ‘healed’ from COVID-19 after receiving “interactive prayer” from Joshua’s ministry, acknowledging “spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this”.

His testimony was followed days later by a couple of university lecturers who equally acknowledged receiving healing from the dreaded virus, replete with medical reports before and after prayers from Emmanuel TV.

Since starting its ‘Interactive Prayer’ – in which online prayer is offered via video calls – Joshua’s ministry has prayed for COVID-19 patients from around the world including citizens of USA, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Honduras and Cuba.

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.

VIDEO: WHO comments on Medical doctor’s healing of COVID-19 TB Joshua’s church

The World Health Organization (WHO) has responded to a video of a Cameroonian medical doctor Kameni Pierre, who was healed of COVID-19 after prayers from one of Pastor TB Joshua’s recently anointed Prophet through the Church channel, Emmanuel TV in the “Distance is not a Barrie” Program.

WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, WHO Executive Director of Health Emergencies, Dr Michael Ryan and other WHO officials were questioned about the miracle by a Cameroonian journalist Simon Ateba during an interactive media session on Wednesday, July 1.

“On Monday, a very popular pastor in Nigeria, T.B Joshua, released a video of a medical doctor in Cameroon who was said to have been cured of the virus through prayer,” Ateba stated, asking the panellists for their reaction.

In the video he referenced, Dr Kameni Pierre – a gynaecologist and obstetrician – receives prayer after affirming he was positive to coronavirus during an ‘Interactive Prayer Session’ organised by Emmanuel TV.

After ‘vomiting out’ the disease during prayer, the medical doctor held up his medical report days later confirming he was diagnosed negative to COVID-19.

In response, Dr Michael Ryan, the Executive Director of WHO Health Emergencies Programme, affirmed the readiness of WHO to collaborate with bodies like The SCOAN to advance the cause of the war against the deadly virus.

“Certainly, spiritual leadership is very important in times like this,” Ryan stated, praising the role of faith-based organisations in providing accurate information to communities.

Tb Joshua, SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Speaking further, the WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus added that faith and science should “go together”.

“We know many religious leaders who would really advise their followers to follow their faith and at the same time use science. The two do not contradict; they go together… We will call on all religious leaders to be in this fight and save lives,” he stated.

Ghebreyesus had earlier echoed TB Joshua’s prophecy where he declared 2020 “the year of humility” in which “God would humble us with our challenges”.

“If this virus is teaching us anything, it is humility,” the former Ethiopian Minister of Health asserted.

Emmanuel TV’s popular YouTube videos, many of which show similar cases of miraculous healing through prayer, have accumulated over six hundred million views.

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

FORGIVENESS IS NOT AN OPTION

It was a feisty singing session on Sunday as The SCOAN Choir gave a virtuoso performance that got worshippers dancing with holy abandon, swaying to a medley of worship songs with inspired rhythms, melodies and lyrics.
Prophet T.B. Joshua was in a very expansive mood when he joined the congregation on Sunday. He delivered a message titled FORGIVENESS IS NOT AN OPTION. Reading from Matthew 18:21-22 and Colossians 3:13-14, he exhorted the people yet again on the need to let go of offence. He stressed that it was important to identify the barriers between oneself and God. He also said that it was necessary to maintain the essentials of life set on the believer’s table by properly handling the matter of whom we have offended and who has offended us. Forgiveness, he insisted, is the source to the freedom that God desires for us, regardless of whether we are the offender or the offended. He noted that God simply commands us to forgive and that “Forgiveness is not an option,” he concluded. After his ministration, he prayed with the people and prophesied on their cases as led by the Holy Spirit.

Prophet Chris gave a message titled DON’T GET STUCK IN A STOPOVER, taking his readings from Genesis 37, 39-45 as well as 2 Corinthians 4:17. He likened the challenges faced by Christians to transit points meant to connect them with their destinies, and advised them not to get stuck there. He told the worshippers that as Christians, whatever they might be passing through “is part of the events arranged and designed by God to usher you into your destiny.” He therefore assured them thus: “If you know this truth…, you will not get carried away by your challenges, you will not get so caught up in your challenges, you will not allow your situation, your challenges, your troubles to mislead you or deceive you.”

TESTIMONIES

BOY RESCUED FROM BRINK OF BLINDNESS

Last week, Dr Arthur Nwashindi and his wife Mercy were at The SCOAN to testify of the Lord’s goodness in the life of their little boy, Arthur-Prince, who had been diagnosed with glaucoma, a condition that could lead to total blindness. Their child had been complaining about short-sightedness and occasional loss of vision. Disturbed, the Nwashindis booked a Monday appointment with a surgeon in Lagos. However, they had stopped over at The SCOAN for prayers the Sunday before. After a touch by Prophet T.B. Joshua, the following day they took the boy to see the doctor, but not before they had been queried by their son on the necessity of honouring the doctor’s appointment. To cut the long story short, after comprehensive tests, the specialist issued a clean bill of health for Arthur-Prince. Thanking God for the miracle, he said, “Now I can see clearly.” “There is no impossibility with God,” Dr Nwashindi said. On her part, Mrs Nwashindi said, “We should solely depend on God, for He has the final say.

STIFF NECK VANISHES AT DIVINE TOUCH

Two weeks ago, Mr Emmanuel Semadio had come to The SCOAN with the problem of a stiff neck due to cervical spondylosis and cervical spasms. An administrative officer in managerial capacity, he could not do his work effectively owing to severely limited mobility. Despite his neck collar and drugs, he had been unable to free himself from pain. After prayers in the name of Jesus Christ, however, he got his perfect healing. “The power of God touched me,” he testified on Sunday, turning his neck to demonstrate his healing. “Run to Jesus,” he advised people.

TRIPLE FIBROIDS FLUSHED OUT AFTER PROPHECY

“There is a woman that’s having triple fibroids; right now it’s coming out,” so prophesied Prophet T.B. Joshua during the Mass Prayer two Sundays ago. The prophecy had been for Mrs Augustine Aziagbenyo, a Ghanaian, who had identified herself after the man of God spoke. Afterwards, she went to the restroom and, to God be the glory, the fibroids had indeed been flushed out of her system. “God’s time is the best,” she told the church. Also testifying on Sunday was her husband, who also urged people to trust in God.

DIVINE HEALING FOR GRIEVOUS HOT WATER INJURIES

Mr Andrew Akhabue, a Lagos resident, had been travelling when his driver found that the car radiator had overheated. Joining the driver to check the engine, he had boiling water splash over him as the radiator burst suddenly. After weeks of medical attention, Mr Akhabue’s injuries remained very painful and he could not walk properly. It was in this condition that he visited The SCOAN three weeks ago. As Prophetess Yinka prayed for him, in Jesus’ name, Mr Akhabue felt a surge of divine heat in his burnt thighs. Moans of pain escaped his lips but those were going to be the last time he would feel the pains. “After a while, there was something like cold water poured on that spot,” he said of his experience after the prayer. Within days, the wounds on his thigh dried up and Mr Akhabue no longer feels pain and can walk perfectly. To God be the glory!

AN END TO 25 YEARS OF GASTRITIS AND FIBROMYALGIA DURING LIVING WATER SERVICE

It was clear that these Colombian sisters were besides themselves with joy as they testified on Sunday. The Monday before, they had attended The SCOAN Living Water Service – and that had marked the end to 25 years of gastritis and fibromyalgia for Maria Mosquera and to insomnia and hypertension for Betty Murillo. Once Maria took the Living Water, the power of God struck at the root cause of her problems and she vomited a large amount of a blackish substance. “I felt light afterwards,” she reported. Also gone was the severe pain that had prevented her from lifting her right shoulder. On her part, Betty can now sleep like a baby, with her insomnia and hypertension gone. The Switzerland residents advised people to have faith in God and watch Emmanuel TV.

WIND OF DEAFNESS BLOWN AWAY!

Four years ago, Mr Daniel Lumisa, a Congolese special-needs teacher based in Canada, had been playing a game with his students when an ill wind suddenly blew into his left ear. By the time the eerie sensation was over, his students’ voices had become like a distant echo. Soonafter, he discovered he had totally lost his hearing. At work, they granted him three months of compassionate leave. Then he returned to the doctors, who told him he would need hearing aids. After six months, he returned to work but they still insisted he would not be able to teach. As his treatment progressed, so did his condition worsen. Mr Lumisa then took his case to God, visiting The Arena of Liberty two weeks ago and receiving prayers in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Since his healing, he has been able to hear clearly without his hearing aids. He advised people to seek Jesus Christ for their healing.

BLOCKED FALLOPIAN TUBES CLEAR UP AT PROPHETIC WORDS

After her marriage, Mrs Happiness Chinweoke had been unable to fall pregnant due to blockage of the fallopian tubes. Instead of panicking at the doctors’ diagnosis, she continued to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV, even buying baby clothes in faith. During a Sunday service at The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied about her condition: “There is a woman under the gallery. There is something inside you; it is not fibroid but it has burst. It is coming out in the form of bleeding”. The man of God then asked her to go and check herself in the restroom. She did so after identifying herself before the congregation and indeed, blood substances had come out of her, just as the man of God had prophesied. In no time, she fell pregnant. On Sunday, she came to testify in the company of her husband. The couple advised people to have faith in God.

“LORD, PLEASE, JUST BRING MY KIDS FOR ME!”

She was 14 years old when the spirit of lust and rebellion overpowered her. Years later, the Ghanaian Rosemond had emerged as unrepentant prostitute who felt no qualms about drugging or attempting to kill her children when they hindered her work. She also connived with male partners-in-crime to rob her ‘clients’. In the process, she had four children and the Nigerian fourth baby father asked her to marry him. He brought her to Nigeria. But he gave up the idea when his family objected. Not knowing what else to do, she reported herself to the Holy Spirit at The SCOAN. There, she received prayers in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. After the prayers, Rosemond suddenly developed a deep love for her children, asking to see them and be allowed to show them love. Before ending her testimony on Sunday, she prayed that women who are still living the kind of life she lived in the past would change their ways.

FOR THE MUGYABUSOS, IT’S A BABY GIRL AFTER 11 MISCARRIAGES!

It was nine years of agony for the Mugyabusos eleven pregnancies ended up being miscarried. It was a peculiar situation as each miscarriage occurred in the fourth month of pregnancy! According to Mrs Mugyabuso, the miscarriages occurred after an evil woman appeared to her in the dream. In 2017 they had come to The SCOAN, where they received prayers in the mighty name of Jesus from Prophet T.B. Joshua, as well as The New Morning Water. On the night of that same day, Mr Mugyabuso saw Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream assuring the couple that their problem had been solved. They returned to Tanzania, continuing to pray and minister The New Morning Water. This time, the pregnancy made it to term! Last week and they came to The SCOAN with their baby girl to testify of God’s goodness! The couple advised people to focus on God no matter the situation they are in.

BUT FOR DIVINE MERCY, A SURGICAL ERROR WOULD HAVE KILLED HER!

When the pregnant Mrs Cynthia Lavoe had gone to the hospital on the 18th of April 2018, she had been hoping to return home with a baby. But after three hours of energy-sapping labour, she had had to leave for home with nothing but surgical stitches on her belly. Her baby had died in the womb and the doctors had had to evacuate it. Three days later, Mrs Lavoe and her husband, Samson, began to notice that something was amiss, so they returned to the hospital. However, the tests revealed nothing even though the woman continued to feel severe pains even as her stomach swelled and fluid flowed out of her stitches. As designed by God, a friend gave one of the Good Morning Stickers he had received at The SCOAN to Mr Lavoe, who handed it over to his wife, urging her to pray with it and place it over her stomach. That night, Mrs Lavoe had a dream in which somebody told her that something had been left in her stomach during the surgery. In the morning, she returned to the hospital and as the nurses dressed her wounds, one of them noticed something unusual sticking out of the stitches. She pulled at it – and it turned out to be a surgical gauze! The gauze which was forgotten by the surgeon in her womb during evacuation of the dead baby, had soaked up fluid and had been causing damage in her system. The couple testified on Sunday that Jesus is the Master Healer and urged people not to joke with the Good Morning Sticker and other faith tools.

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!!
