CHRIST IN OUR HEART

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

As you trust in Jesus, He will make His home in your heart (Ephesians 3:17). We are made to be like Jesus in our heart. Faith is of man’s heart because only faith pleases Him. The Word is our contact with God; it is His contact with us. It is the Word dwelling in you which is equivalent to Christ personally being in you. This means, Christ and His Word are one. If you know Christ and His Word are one, you bring Christ on the scene by making His Word a part of you.

Therefore, it is the Word that builds Christ’s nature into an individual – kindness, goodness, self-control, obedience, just name it – the fruits of the Spirit. As the Word dominates, rules and sanctifies our spirit nature, Jesus is building Himself into us and making Himself a part of us.

Remember, faith is perfected by our acting on the Word. This is the secret. For faith comes through hearing the Word of God. You cannot obey that Word when the Word has not dominated, ruled and lived in your heart. So today, open your heart to God’s Word, faith and Spirit so that He can make His home in your heart.

JOY BREAKS EVERY BARRIER

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

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

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

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.
