THE MAN WHO STAND IN THE GAP FOR WORLD PEACE


Despite the harsh history of persecutions, Campaign of calumnies, attacks and intimidations faced by Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Ministry of SCOAN from the remorseless world and its establishment, T.B. Joshua has continued to stay faithful in his quest for world peace. He has compassionately remained steadfast in interceding for a peaceful and crisis-free world even when there is little or no credit to his person.

The Prophet has continued to bring himself down in submission, as an instrument in God’s hands to speak freedom where there are oppression and peace where there are crises in every part of the world. He has remained a channel of peace to a world that pride itself in war and crisis.

Prophet T.B. Joshua has always been neutral in his world peace expedition. He has never taken sides in any of the crisis between nations of the world, irrespective of the race, tribe and religious belief of those involved in the conflict. The Prophet has made himself a father to all that can easily be accessible to every lover of peace.

We should not be misled by the secularist out there. The supremacy and existence of God are not debatable. God is still much interested and involved in the affairs of men. It is never the wish of God for there to be unrest and crisis in this world. But the attitude of mankind towards the things of God is the reason for the continued killings, stealing and distractions that is taken place in our world.

That is why, regardless, the efforts made by the Prophet as God’s instrument to bring about a peaceful world, there can only be peace if mankind will stop ignoring God. The Problem in the world today lingers because we have continued to ignore God’s words and rely on mortal understandings that seem to glorify our self-pride and ego. I am not trying to underestimate or write-off the human perceptiveness and deductive reasoning. Since God is the one that created it there. But we tend to glorify the created above the creator. It is even most disturbing when there is this visible sentiment of abhorrence against the things of God by this present world establishment.

The world is so full of anger and suspicions even among allies because we tend to base our thoughts and actions on selfish interest and we don’t care if our doings may have a detrimental effect on our neighbours. We wrongly believe that a show of Love and compassion towards our neighbour who may be perceived as an enemy is a sign of weakness and cowardice.

There is the need for us to understand that this world is beyond the atmospheric surroundings that are visible to us. The greatest influences on this physical world are from the invisible. There is an invisible world that is beyond our natural human comprehension. Unfortunately, many ignorantly see these things as foolish and that is one of the major reasons why many will continue to be used unknowingly by the kingdom of darkness to fulfil their evil agenda against the will and purpose of God for humanity.

The human world will continue to fight the wrong battles and even compound issues for themselves and their unborn generations if we fail to realise that there are invisible forces at work behind every crisis in the world. Until we run to the Creator, we will continue to fight the shadow instead of the real enemy.

If we indeed believe in the supremacy of God and want a peaceful world, let us rally around the prophet and make use of the gift of God in his life, instead of, fighting him and wishing for his downfall. He is here in this world for our service. The Prophet is concern about the world and he wants us to live in peace and harmony with each other. With God’s intervention, humanity can live peacefully amongst each other. Since there is nothing God cannot do. Let’s stop ignoring God and embrace His Prophet for it to be well with our world.

Senior Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly known as T.B Joshua, is the founder of Emmanuel Television and General Overseer, Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos. T.B Joshua was born in Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo state, now in the present Ekiti State on June 12, 1963.

His birth was foretold that he was not an ordinary child; that he was anointed from his mother’s womb. He spent 15 months in the womb before his birth. Not only that; a day before his naming ceremony, he miraculously survived a mishap that would have claimed his life. A blast from a quarry in the community had flung a large rock through the roof of where he was laid, but he was untouched.

T.B. Joshua started from nowhere, but yet has offered so much to uplift and deliver nations and her citizens across the globe. His journey is a humble story of how God raised a young man from a poverty-stricken home to lead a dynamic, multifaceted and global ministry that attracts millions worldwide to witness the reality of God’s power. T.B Joshua is happily married to Evelyn Joshua and is blessed with three children.

World over, Prophet T.B Joshua has trained people in different areas of specialization and human endeavour. He has equally helped built the capacity of youths. T.B Joshua laid the foundation of his charity in 1989, which has touched the lives of millions of people all over the World. What he does across the globe has enhanced the image of Nigeria in international scene.

According to Forbes Magazine, T.B Joshua and Emmanuel Television Partners have spent over two hundred million dollars on charity worldwide. He is a care-giver who found fulfillment in the joy of others. T.B Joshua has provided for the physically challenged, the aged, the orphans, widows, widowers, the needy, the helpless, the forgotten, the abandoned and the oppressed.

The less privileged ones have found succour in Prophet T.B Joshua. He built houses for the poor, gave free food and Medicare as well as paid school fees for indigent ones. Over twelve thousands students have been benefiting from his scholarship programme worldwide. Some of the students have bagged their B.Sc, Master’s and doctorate degrees in various fields of discipline. In addition, over two thousand staff are on his payroll in his ministry. This goes to show that T.B Joshua is a priceless jewel.

During the 2013 earthquake in Haiti, Prophet T.B Joshua sent a medical team to the affected areas. The team established a field hospital called “Clinique Emmanuel”. Countries such as India, Philippines and Ghana have also felt the philanthropic gesture of T.B Joshua during periods of natural disasters. Moreso, T.B Joshua and partners assisted victims of earthquake that struck Ecuador in 2016 by providing relief materials worth about five hundred million dollars.

Nigerians are also not left out in his humanitarian services. Those deported from various parts of the world have received succour and rehabilitation from the man of God, among so many other humanitarian gestures. Indeed, God has used T.B Joshua mightily to heal and deliver a lot of souls from bondage.

More so, T.B Joshua’s teachings are life changing. They refresh and transform destinies and prepare one for a very fulfilling, fruitful and rewarding experience with God’s words. Every segment of T.B Joshua’s sermon is brimmed with an effusion of divine revelation and power that transforms the lives and destinies of congregation and viewers all over the world.

Today, we, the partners, wise men, SCOAN Family and Admirers, celebrate your birthday. We pray that God, in His infinite mercy, will give you long life, strength and more anointing to continue the work of God to man worldwide. Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua (aka T.B Joshua), hearty cheers at 55. Once more, happy birthday and many happy returns. Better is not good enough, the best is yet to come.

T.B. Joshua

…as group urges him not to relocate to Israel

General Secretary of the Campaign for Democracy, Evangelist Ifeanyi Odili, has tasked politicians in the country to borrow a leaf from the founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua, who as a cleric, has touched the lives of the common people more than any politician has ever done.

Odili, in a statement issued in Akure, Ondo State, to congratulate Joshua who turns 55 on June 12, said the man of God is a living example of the ideal Christian, as he is not given to vain words or undue material acquisition to the neglect of the suffering masses.

Applauding Joshua, the CD general secretary said, “As a pro-democracy activist and evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church, who is based here in Akure, I have taken time to study the lifestyle of Pastor T.B. Joshua and all his propagations and I have come to the conclusion that our politicians need to simply emulate him for Nigeria to advance.

“They should borrow a leaf, and even, many leaves from his humility, candour and fervency in the propagation of what he believes in, which is the gospel of Christ. As an indigene of Ondo State, who is based in Lagos, he has not neglected his home as he keeps empowering jobless youths and setting up various platforms for them to realise their dreams.

“He is not given to vain words and undue acquisition of material wealth to the detriment of the suffering masses. Initially, I thought his humanitarian gestures were limited to his home-state until I visited the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos and found out that for him, humanitarian service is a daily obligation.”

The activist, however, appealed to T.B. Joshua not to fully relocate to Israel as proposed, noting that the Nigerian society is enough task for him, and that only few of his type exist among men of God in the country.

“I believe the man of God can extend his activities to Israel as he is mandated to spread the gospel to all parts of the world, but he should not relocate completely from Nigeria, as this decadent society needs his type to shape public morality and encourage social service. For me, the type of T.B Joshua are very, very few in Nigeria,” Odili stressed.

Born on June 12, 1963 in Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo State, Joshua reportedly spent 15 months in his mother’s womb. He attended St. Stephens’ Anglican Primary School, Arigidi-Akoko, but failed to complete secondary school owing to poverty. While in primary school, he was referred to as ‘the small pastor’ as he led evangelical activities.

ACP– Aircraft Flew Over Synagogue’s Building Before Tumbling Down


An Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Mr Alaba Haruna, on Friday 11, May 2018 told a Lagos High Court that an aircraft flew over Synagogue Church of All Nations building at Ikotun-Egbe, a Lagos suburb,  just before it collapsed on Sept. 12, 2014, killing 116 people.

He said one of his patrol teams observed an aircraft flying low over the church and other buildings in the premises.

Haruna testified before Justice Lateef Lawal-Akapo of an Igbosere High Court on Lagos Island as a defence witness in the trial of the registered trustees of the church and four others.

The church opened its defence in a one-count charge of building without approval brought against it by the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) following the dismissal of its no-case submission on March 8, 2016.

The other defendants are the two engineers who built the building: Messrs Oladele Ogundeji and Akinbela Fatiregun, and their companies, Hardrock Construction and Engineering Company and Jandy Trust Ltd.

Apart from the trustees’ one-count charge, the other defendants are facing a 110-count bordering on involuntary manslaughter.

Newsmen report that Haruna, Area Commander of the Eastern Ports Command, Port Harcourt, Rivers, was the Divisional Police Officer at Ikotun-Egbe at the time the building collapsed.

He was led in evidence by the trustees counsel, Mr Oluseye Diyan.

Haruna said: “On that fateful day on Sept.12, 2014 at 12.30 p.m., there was a radio communication from the police control room at Ikeja that they were receiving calls from the public of an aircraft flying at low altitude over the church.

“I was directed by the Area Command to confirm the incident and monitor the aircraft’s activities.

“I wanted to go out and direct my men to watch out for the aircraft when I received another report of an airplane flying at a very low altitude. I went outside but I couldn’t see it, by that time it had gone.

“I received a call later from Insp. Lucky Ugbaja, stationed at the church that one of the church’s buildings had collapsed.”

According to him, the radio room had earlier radioed the Police Airport Command to confirm whether it was carrying out any activity in the church vicinity.

Haruna said when he arrived at the church’s premises there was a large crowd and the few policemen there were trying to manage the situation.

He said onlookers kept trooping in and the crowd spilled to the roads outside the church, causing serious gridlock.

“We were overwhelmed,” Haruna told the judge, adding that he called for more policemen and were provided.

According to him, the floors of the collapsed building were lying one on the other, ” the church members and others at the scene were engaged in rescue operations.

“Those I met there were church worshipers; they were bringing out so many people from under the rubble. Most of the victims were alive. Some were injured, some were not.

“Later the Red Cross, Life Savers, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) arrived and joined us in the rescue.”

He said the rescue mission lasted about seven days.

During cross-examination by the prosecutor, Dr Babajide Martins, Haruna insisted that he could not recall any instance when LASEMA officials or the then Commissioner for Physical Planning, Mr Toyin Ayinde, were prevented by the church members from gaining access to the site of the collapsed building.

He said: “Apart from the LASEMA GM who said he had a herculean task passing through the crowd, no other had problems passing through.

When Martins asked him why he concluded that the rescuers were church members or worshipers, Haruna said: “Commonsense suggests that they were.”

Following the prosecution’s application for an adjournment, Justice Lawal-Akapo adjourned further proceedings until June 28.

The Korean Peace Meeting – How the Man in the Synagogue Sew It Coming


Who would have imagined that a time will come, when the two Korea neighbours – the North and South Korea would willingly come together depict the past tension between both nations to discuss on how they can live peacefully as neighbours.

This is the reality before our own very eyes. The Korea brothers have in the past few months seen the need to make strong diplomatic moves that will see to an end, their long-time disagreement.

The North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un will on Friday, April 27, 2018 walk across the demilitarized zone to the southern side for a historic summit with the South’s President Moon Jae-in, in a high powered level meeting. This encounter by the Koreas is likely to pave ways for a peace treaty that will bring to an end, the long-time conflict between the two Korea nations.

It is, however, important to note that since the time of this conflict – with the threat of war, Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue, Church of all Nations has been in the forefront blowing the trumpet of peace and unity among the Korea brothers. Even when it seems others have already taking a side and were beating the drum of war, the Prophet of God was prophetically suggesting useful ways on how peace can be restored among both brothers in other to prevent a situation whereby another crisis will be added to the already tensed world.

It also important to note that, this unanticipated event of peace talks between the Korea brothers – the South and the North was prophesied by Prophet T.B. Joshua on the 3rd of April 2014, while ministering at a pastor’s conference in South Korea. The Prophet said: “In your country here [South Korea], whatever threat you are having now is not a threat. You will still come to the table to talk reconciliation between you and the North. There is no fight between South and North. Whatever threat now, they will still come together and discuss. They will not fight but there will be threat, threat, threat There will be gunshot threat but you will still discuss. There will be reconciliation. I am seeing reconciliation coming. Discussion will come.” says the Prophet who is so much concern about world peace. Prophet T.B. Joshua believes in a crisis-free world and he has continued to make himself available for God to use him to fulfil that cause.

We thank God that the two brother nations have yielded to the voice of God and have seen reasons why they should embrace peace since nobody benefit in war. They are wise to have avoided a situation in the cause of war whereby, their region will become an experimental ground for dangerous weapons of man’s destructions. We pray for a successful peace talk between the Korea nations, in Jesus’ Name…Amen!

T.B. Joshua’s New Morning Water and The Paris experience


The expectations had mounted over the weeks following the success that was recorded at the crusade organised by the Prophet T.B. Joshua-led Synagogue Church of All Nations in the United Kingdom. The testimonies were undeniable. They were vivid, direct and all revealed the mighty workings of the Almighty God in the life and ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. For many who attended the UK Morning Water crusade, the life-transforming experience would remain for a long time in their lives. What had started as a quiet gathering soon snowballed into a mighty demonstration of God’s power. This became a reality when the anointing through the Spirit of God used the Prophet T. B Joshua-led Synagogue Church of All Nations’ New Morning Water as a unique and powerful medium to heal, save, deliver and bless those who had come for the event. Indeed, God expressed Himself mightily on Saturday, January 27, 2018. It was a gathering like no other and testimonies still abound regarding what the participants received.

For Paris, many had waited anxiously for the move of God. It was, therefore, not surprising when Prophet T.B. Joshua sent evangelists to Paris to minister healing to the sick and salvation to the oppressed. On Saturday, February 24, 2018, Emmanuel TV partners and many others had gathered at Les Docks de Paris, Le Dock Pullman, 87 Avenue des Magasins Generaux, 93300 Aubervilliers, venue of the crusade. During the ministration of the New Morning Water by the evangelists sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua, the reception was massive as it was indeed overwhelming. Those who could not make it to the venue, both within and outside Paris, tuned in to watch the event on Emmanuel TV while others watched the live streaming of the crusade. There were healings for the body, the soul and the spirit of those who had come.

In an interview granted by Prophet T.B. Joshua to one of the national dailies in Nigeria, he stated, inter a lia, “the uniqueness of my ministry characterized by miracle-filled crusades is significantly anchored on the fact that rather than the blacks having to travel to Europe and America and other developed countries to experience God’s grace, it is the other way round. My team and I have been known to visit countries, which hitherto hardly ever recognized any good thing coming out of black soil to touch lives in foreign lands.

“Strengthened by God’s promise and the power of Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit’s ministration, we have been led to crusades and through Christ’s power and blood, healed the sick, delivered the satanically besieged and helped the needy, the helpless and the hopeless. Through missionary activities, thousands of blind, hearing impaired, sick, crippled, diseased and infirm have been known to respond to God’s grace and mercy when touched by the right hand of God. Some often get converted to the faith – prominently those initially opposed to the Christian faith.

“We have often been well accepted, not only by the commoners, the orphans, widows, widowers and the needy, but also by the political stakeholders, leaders, military lieutenants, generals, foremost religious leaders, ministers in government and members of parliament in foreign lands. Don’t forget, I’m from a country where young boys and girls are sold into slavery in Libya, Italy, Switzerland, Oman and Saudi Arabia. In most countries of the world, blacks are disregarded, trafficked, abused, terrified, insulted and blacklisted. But in what the world has seen of my programmes in foreign crusades, we have emerged as the most progressive and fruitful positive image creator for Nigeria and Africa. No wonder, Israel – the birthplace of Jesus Christ Himself has shown interest in having me as one of their citizens with the hope of having my ministry established there.”

The depth of his ministrations in many parts of the world has revealed the extent of God’s anointing on the prophet. From the church’s headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, Prophet T.B. Joshua has revealed God’s power to millions of followers who are hungry for God’s power and touch upon their lives. The various healings and demonstration of the power of God at the Paris Morning Water crusade only underscores the fulfilment of God’s touch and anointing on Prophet Joshua. That he is a prophet sent to the nations to reveal the mind of God to all is without doubt whatsoever. It is therefore not surprising when leaders of various nations seek to know the mind of God through the prophetic ministry of the Man in the Synagogue. This is indeed true and has been tested time and over again. As the testimonies pour in from Paris, it is expected that the prophet’s next port of call will equally witness greater demonstration of the power of God.  Today, he remains a wonderful demonstration of the power of God.
