The Church, the Community and Coronavirus

Coronavirus

The coronavirus global pandemic is not a new virus. It has been around for a long while causing fluid and other diseases. It is most likely to remain in public circulation spreading from human to human. Through the virus’ ability to transform its activities from causing fever, dry cough, tiredness, headache, etc. The global community must anticipate a fact that the coronavirus may in future appear in a more destructive position than the ongoing COVID-19. Hence COVID-19 must be quickly dealt with to reduce its damage on the economy, the society and the Church.

The Church is a major stakeholder in every community in the areas of human restoration, reformation, rehabilitation, and providing hope and comfort to souls that are in despair, sick, fearful, or restless. The goal of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), led by Prophet TB Joshua, is to freely serve the world in times like this and such capacity as God will direct. Covid-19 is what we can see today, and because the world has followed its instinct, and has largely neglected the more important spiritual aspect, there is confusion, fear, rejection in the society.

Whilst some governments have given guidance on how Assemblies ought to conduct self, others simply hang to the total lockdown approach. Of course, it is still vital that the necessary hygiene and social distancing precautions are kept in place to protect the hospital workers and save lives. Similarly, no pastor would want to be quarantined because members who visited their church later tested positive to COVID-19. All this is still at the human level. In every society, the Church members remain the most discipline set of people, more organized than market traders.

The action of Mary Magdalene in John 20:10-16 is very commendable if we must desire to see what others fail to see. She had the singular honour to have anointed the body of Jesus before the crucifixion. Later on, the other ladies brought their oil to the tomb but it wasn’t useful because the tomb was empty when they arrived. Now see her unique devotion and character again. They all ran to the tomb but while the disciples went away unto their own home after a while Mary stood around weeping. As she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, she saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. Eventually, Jesus Himself appeared to her and she became the first to see Jesus and hence by inference the first that Jesus would send as a missionary to others immediately after the resurrection.

The best of the world politicians are like Pilate, or at the very best the disciples, always in hurry, not looking deep enough, fearful of what the public would say. On the other hand, we may liken Prophet TB Joshua and the Church to Mary who painstakingly has told us before the advent of COVID-19, and also still telling us some future events, hardship and humility that shall follow. The entire Church of Christ should be in one accord, listen to him as many are doing across the world, confederating with Emmanuel.tv partners in charity giving globally. His prayer and encouraging words are going to be more effective in our common attempt to get people back on their two feet and prepare them for the next battle. More importantly by his teaching, using his various ministries, he is raising the Church of Christ to the right level, making the global community conscious of the coming Christ and preparing new prophets and evangelists for the mission. Covid-19 that has taken the world’s attention in the last five months is not going to be the last battle nor the most difficult. The world would henceforth need the Church of Christ to lead in the hard battles ahead. Emmanuel!!!

Questions et réponses avec TB Joshua sur les masques faciaux

QUESTION: Ma mère et mon père âgés ont commencé à porter leurs masques faciaux de façon permanente par crainte de contracter COVID-19 et de ne les retirer que lorsqu’ils veulent manger, car ils doivent utiliser leur bouche pour manger. Je crains que cela ne soit dangereux. Comment puis-je les conseiller?

RÉPONSE: Conformément aux directives sanitaires mondiales pendant cette période de COVID-19, le gouvernement insiste sur l’utilisation de masques faciaux dans les lieux publics – ainsi que sur l’éloignement social et le lavage des mains. Les masques faciaux peuvent être une très bonne chose, mais ils peuvent également être dangereux lorsqu’ils ne sont pas utilisés correctement ou lorsqu’ils ne sont pas fabriqués avec le bon matériau.

Le gouvernement vous a demandé de porter des masques faciaux lorsque vous êtes dans des lieux publics, au milieu des gens, dans la rue, dans des véhicules lorsque vous n’êtes pas seul. Le gouvernement fait cela pour vous aider. Ils ne vous demandent pas de le porter 24 heures sur 24. Il devrait y avoir un moment à la maison lorsque vous le retirez. Mais certaines personnes portent leur masque facial pendant de longues périodes. Respirer et respirer le même air ou ne pas avoir assez d’air en respirant – tout cela peut affecter votre santé, provoquer des maux de tête, de la fatigue et aggraver les problèmes de santé existants.

Alors, faisons attention à la quantité de temps que nous portons le masque facial et aussi au type de matériau dont nos masques faciaux sont faits. Pour beaucoup, les produits chimiques utilisés pour fabriquer ces matières peuvent être dangereux à inhaler. REMARQUE: Le masque facial est votre masque personnel. Il doit être propre et fait d’un matériau approprié. Cela nécessite votre discrétion, téléspectateurs.

En ce moment, prions. Tout ce qui affecte votre discrétion – raisonnez bien, au nom de Jésus-Christ! Raison selon la direction de Dieu, au nom de Jésus-Christ! Raison conforme à Dieu, au nom de Jésus! Les téléspectateurs, parfois des difficultés peuvent influencer notre raisonnement. Parfois, le chômage peut influencer notre raisonnement. Parfois, la peur peut influencer notre raisonnement. Parfois, la pression peut influencer notre raisonnement. Maintenant, commencez à bien raisonner, au nom de Jésus! Commencez à raisonner en accord avec Dieu, au nom de Jésus! Commencez à faire la bonne chose, au nom de Jésus! Faites la bonne chose, au nom de Jésus! Au nom de Jésus, nous prions!

Nous aimerions profiter de ce temps pour saluer notre gouverneur de l’État de Lagos, le gouverneur Sanwo-Olu. En effet, il est unique en son genre. Si vous regardez son activité à ce moment critique, elle peut être comparée au gouverneur de New York qui est toujours sur les actualités nationales pour informer le grand public et les éduquer. Notre gouverneur veut voir son peuple et il veut le voir bien vivre. Nous prions que Dieu augmente sa capacité à faire plus, au nom de Jésus!

Spirit Economy: TB Joshua Answer Question on US – China Relationship

QUESTION – I was watching international news and saw US President Donald Trump threaten to cut off ties with China. Prophet TB Joshua, what would happen if America truly cuts ties with China?

ANSWER: “America’s concentration is on big things while China concentrates on small things, e.g. manufacturing and agricultural goods – what developing nations need. Remember, 70-80% of the world are developing nations. What they need to grow, to live and to improve is what China is concentrating on. I think America should learn this lesson. This is what they should turn to.

China is using all these little things to get money from developing nations – and that is making them the richest in the world. It is trade by barter. It has made developing nations to see China as their hope. For example, a product in America may cost 500 and last long, because it is durable. The same product in China may cost 100 but not last long. However, developing nations will still choose China’s products because such products are within their reach. That makes many nations to become debtors to China – even America.”

GET READY FOR LIFE AFTER THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN – A WORD FROM TB JOSHUA

If you don’t get your job back or you don’t get a proper job or a full-time job or you run into loss or lose a loved one after this lockdown, don’t despair; don’t doubt your Guard. God is about to establish you. Ask any successful man or woman and they will tell you about how much disappointment and setback they had to endure to come to a new level in life.

For many, it was a sack letter, an accusation, a petition against them and they lost their job – but today they are established. I want to believe the similar signs I am seeing now will happen to many while others may lose loved ones or run into loss.

I can see beyond many of our situations at hand. That is why I am telling you that behind that situation lies your future. After the lockdown, whatever disappointment you will receive or whatever happens – think deeply and you will see the reason why this is happening to you. Remember, many successful people today once had the same experience and they were moved to a higher level in life thereby.

Ordinarily, you would not want to leave your position or status and say you want to establish yourself without a situation like this. Something must happen – and that seems to be happening now. Sometimes God allows situations like this – I mean disappointment or something more serious – so that you can take your proper position and possessions. Sometimes it is to enable you to get to where you belong. I know where I belong!

What is your dark moment? It may be to make you see clearly where you belong, I mean to prepare you for your future. I know where I belong! It is time to know where you belong; that is why all this is happening now.

Don’t forget everything big starts little. If something big starts big, it calls for concern. Starting little with a sincere heart is evidence that you will grow. Everything genuine likes to start little. You have to be ready to start little, cut your coat according to your cloth and endure temporary pain. You know what I mean – the type of life you live must be in accordance with little. It may cause you to withdraw from the city to a rural life or to do away with some of your properties. You will have them back at the right time but let them go now for preparation to grow. Many things you have now may not be necessary for the journey, may not be relevant to the situation that is coming. Let them go and believe this word you are hearing. It is a word from God.

Ask your family members to cut their coat according to their cloth. If any of them was living big before, they have to prepare to adjust now to the situation that is coming. Check your store and bring out the things you may need to sell. Right now, you need to be living modestly.

Women that married men because of affluence or men that married women because of affluence – divorce should not be the order of the day. We just need to adjust. You may likely need some new friends because not all of your friends will be able to cope and adjust. The future is still there but only calls for adjustment.

Many things we are seeing now will go and many new things will come. If you know you got anything by injustice, such will not be able to stand. Whatever you might have received by injustice will go. It is only our genuine sweat that will see us through while nature is ready to take its course. God just started this judgment somewhere. It will soon get to me; it will soon get to you. Let us be ready.

All that I am saying does not mean you are down but this is just what has come in our own time. Every age has its own challenges. People of yesterday had their own challenges in a different way. Others have gone through so-called challenges in their own way. Today, those who adjust will be able to overcome and those who are unable to adjust will go by the level of their challenges – down, fall, death.

Something must happen every 100 years to affect the whole world. This is what has happened in our own lifetime. It has been like that for generations. Those who respond to the demands of the age will end up as overcomers, victors, winners. However, those who fail to respond to the demands appropriately will eventually go down with the times, either by disappointment, failure, death. It is unchangeable; it must happen. The nature of the challenge may be different. Irrespective of how it happened, the nation that caused it, the person that caused it – it had to happen; something just had to cause it.

By the ending of June to the first week of July, this will begin to become a point of reference: “This man said this; that man said it” – but it is God that said it.

Good morning and win today!
