Opinion: Let there be peace in Venezuela


My intention for this article is not to take side with either party in this conflict nor to condemn anyone, but out of love and a sense of concern for a peaceful Venezuela I wrote this.

We all know that even Prophet T.B. Joshua has exempted himself from the public eyes due to his deep concern for a peaceful world. The Prophet, whom by the nature of his love and compassion for humanity, is presently fasting and Praying for all of us, including the nation and citizens of Venezuela. The Prophet is hopeful for a crisis-free world, where everyone will leave in peace and harmony together with their neighbours.

To the leadership in Venezuela, shave your ego and give yourself to the spirit of good counsel!

The devil, whom in his deceptive ways, is out there massaging your ego and encouraging violence in your nation. Remember that you are there to serve the people and not yourself. Don’t allow the devil to use you to cause killing, stealing and destruction in your country.

Don’t be used to destroy your nation’s democracy. No nation or leadership is perfect. Even the so-called advanced democracies out there, are still struggling amongst themselves.

Satan is after the destiny of your nation. Why not ask yourself, why the so much interest in Venezuela.

Beware of those that seem to have taken a side. Any person that claims to love you will be calling for peace and understanding and not encouraging division amongst you people.

We should not allow outsiders to use our sense of greed and desperation for power to cause us to destroy our country. Because in all of this, it is the Venezuela people who will suffer and not those people outside there that seems to be instigating division amongst you.

Be wise and learn from history!

Why not learn from the Libya crisis? Once a nation but now in a state of anarchy. Those who took a side then, are they there in Libya now to feel the pain and disorderliness in that country. No!

Learn to put the safety of your people first before yourself ambition. No matter how good your intentions may be, no single blood of a Venezuelan should drop due to your role in this issue. Because one day we all will leave to face the creator of the universe to give an account on the role we played in this present crisis in Venezuela.

There is nothing wrong to be ambitious, but it will be more rewarding if we can accept to sacrifice our ambition on the altar of peace…. READ MORE

Video: How TB Joshua Prophesied About Venezuela Coup In 2016


International media has been agog with the news of the ‘coup attempt’ and intense political volatility that has engulfed the South American nation of Venezuela in recent days.

On Wednesday 23rdJanuary 2019, Venezuela’s National Assembly leader, Juan Guaidó, declared himself as the country’s interim leader, a move which current leader Nicolás Maduro angrily declared “a coup”.

International battle lines were quickly drawn as US President Donald Trump quickly recognised Mr Guaidó as the country’s authentic head of state alongside several other South American nations, as well as Canada and the UK.

In response, Mr Maduro immediately cut diplomatic ties with America for aiding the ‘coup’. He still maintains military support, as well as enjoying the backing of nations such as Russia, China and Mexico.

However, in faraway Nigeria, Prophet T.B. Joshua had forewarned of the impending coup attempt and its attendant democratic ramifications as far back as May 2016.

In a video released to Emmanuel TV’s YouTube Channel, the Nigerian cleric is heard urging his congregants to pray for Venezuela as he is seeing a “coup” which would affect the “democratic system of government”.

“Venezuela… I’m seeing a coup that will throw away the democratic system of government,” Joshua is heard prophesying in the video dated Sunday May 15th 2016, adding that he was “praying that God should avert it”.

The clip ended with Joshua imploring congregants to remember the nation of Venezuela in their prayers due to the looming timing of the events he prophesied.

Prophet T.B. Joshua is very well known in Latin America, famed for his ‘miracle crusades’ in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay and Dominican Republic which attracted hundreds of thousands attendees.

Part 2: A DIVIDED WORLD AND THE WAY-OUT


God is the Owner of the Universe

The predicament and division in our world today confirm the human inability to properly handle its own affair without the creator of the universe.

Regardless of the fact that we claim we are civilized and made up of refined minds. I ask:

What is the rationale behind a human being, seeing one of our kind as not worthy of is love and compassion?

What is the rationale behind a foreign government going to format trouble in another nation? Leading to killing, stealing and destruction and they will be so happy and comfortable about it.

What is the rationale behind you just hating someone and then going to any leant just to see the downfall of that person, simply because you are not in tune with the person?

What is the rationale behind powerful nations spending billions and trillions of dollars doing intensive research to manufacture weapons of man’s destruction just to kill their fellow human being?

If God should open our eyes to see what our government are spending our taxpayer’s money on, one will wonder if mankind is simply working and planning towards his own extinction.

All these are evidence of a dysfunctional world.

What is the answer to the world healing?

God is the answer!

It is time for the world to go back to the manufacturer – the creator of the universe.

The human race is malfunctioning because we have turned our back against the creator. Nothing can function well if it disconnected from its source. Many in the world has disconnected from God – the source of humanity and we have to connect back for the sake of the healing of our spirit and soul.

What will make a human, created in grace and dignity – in the image and likeness of God, bring himself so low in an intimate sexual relationship with a lower animal like a dog? That is a sign of a malfunctioning product. We all know what is going on in the world. Are we talking about the homosexuals and the transgenders? These are proof of a dysfunctional world. And these are few of many reasons why the world needs to embrace the Man in the Synagogue.

Prophet T.B. Joshua is an embodiment of God’s grace. The ministry of the SCOAN has continued to demonstrate to the world that there is a redemptive power in the Name of Jesus Christ.

This present generation is so fortunate to have a Prophet, in the person of T.B. Joshua that has direct access to God.  A Prophet that can see what is going on in the invisible and bring it out to the visible world.

When we ignore God and His Prophet, we are simply allowing our self to become victims of the devices of Satan. The truth is that the devil, in his canny ways is the force behind the world present predicament.

Satan has continued to use his demonic influences to bring strives amongst the human race. For the reason that he is invisible, and you don’t believe in his existence does not mean he is not their going about his evil enterprise.

This generation still has the chance to do the right thing. We still have the chance to embrace God. The Prophet is still present in our midst. Pride will lead us to no good except destruction. The scripture said we should test all spirit, while not test the God in the Synagogue.

Choose this day whom to embrace. Let’s embrace redemption and not curse. Let’s embrace peace and not strive. And let’s embrace love and not hate. There is still hope and Jesus is the only hope for the total freedom of the human race. REMAIN BLESSED IN JESUS’ NAME! AMEN.

A DIVIDED WORLD AND THE WAY-OUT


God is the Owner of the Universe

Despite the dynamic nature of the human race, with innovative science, technology and modern discovering that has enhanced our contemporary civilization, coupled with the inspiring and consistent message of love and exemplary lifestyle of tolerance that Prophet T.B. Joshua’s ministry has continued to show to the world in both words and deeds, our contemporary world still appears to be more divided as ever before.

One would have thought that the 21st-century world would be a world of civility and tolerance. Where the human race would have learned from the past mistakes to accommodate themselves better, irrespective of differences. But this present generations of the so-called refined minds are totally the mirror of the opposite.

It seems there is always something new and controversial that bring division among us. Either by race, tribe, religion, beliefs, political ideology or philosophy. We always find a means to bring strives amongst ourselves. This ugly phenomenon is so heartbreaker that it seems there is no end to it. And the social news media has become a tool to exploit and promote this sharp division amongst us.

Our present world is filled with so much hate and condemnation that one is afraid to preach genuine love. Even one has to carefully count the words that come out of one’s mouth in other not to be misquoted or misrepresented. That is to tell you how controversial our world is right now.

Everyone seems to be right in their own eyes. Either it goes in my own way if not, it is bad and evil. Everyone has become the author of what is good and evil. We make decisions and support actions according to how it suits our greed and enhance our pride. The scripture which is the word of God is no longer the basis of truth. It is now being distorted by many who use it to suit their self-concept.

Even those that have good intentions are made to be seen as evil. Whatever is good is bad as far it is not from the person we like. Our hate has over clouded our sense of reasoning. There is no sense of decency amongst us. It looks as if we all are going back to the age of disorderliness, where there is no rule to the game. Everyone makes the rule for them self, play the game as they feel and also be the one to score them self. Everyone has created his own way of reasoning fact even in the midst of ignorance and delusion.

What is the way forward?

Self-Examination In Conformity With The Scripture Is The beginning to the Answer!

As Prophet T.B. Joshua rightly said, few things are more dangerous than a person with an unexamined life. I think it is time for every player in the world’s affair to examine themselves and ask themselves, at what ends is their words and actions to a better and righteous world. Where the advocate of peace, unity and tolerance will become the umpire of our modern civilization.

Irrespective of your political ideology wealthier, Democrat, Republican, Labour, Communist, left or right. We all should come together in one accord to pray for our leaders and nations. Including, those we are not in agreement with, they all need our prayers.

Satan seems to be gaining momentum in our respective nations today because we have deviated from our God-given values and instead embrace things that are contrary to God’s purpose for our nations.

This is why the ministry of T.B. Joshua, has continued to enlighten the world on the need to refocus their energy towards the real enemy that is responsible for the killings, stealing and destruction that is taken place in our today world.

Satan is our sole enemy. Let us come together as children of One Supreme God in the unity of purpose to fight against our collective enemy. If not, we will keep on wasting our time and energy fighting each other and making the world more uninhabitable for ourselves and generations to come. MAY GOD HEAL OUR WORLD AND MAY HIS PEACE NEVER DEPART FROM US ALL…AMEN!

THE “SON OF DARKNESS” BROUGHT INTO THE LIGHT!!!


The life-experience you are about to read is not for the faint of the heart. It is a chilling exposé of the kingdom of darkness and its sinister operations in this world, as told by one who was once an embodiment of diabolical powers, one who even bore the name ‘son of darkness’. We advise you to read on carefully and prayerfully…

Nicholas Egwuche was born and brought up by a “demonic goddess” underneath a notorious river in Kogi State, Nigeria. In the ‘mansion under the sea’, he was schooled in every manner of dark art imaginable by the woman he assumed to be his ‘mother’. In reality, his biological mother – who was just sixteen years old at the time she conceived – had harrowingly ‘sacrificed’ him to that goddess to save her the shame of an early pregnancy.

Nicholas’ first sojourn in the ‘real world’ came when the demonic enchantress instructed him to find a young virgin girl and bring her to ‘their kingdom’ for a sacrifice. He was only thirteen years old. Blood was drunk as part of the satanic ritual which imbued the young man with unnerving boldness, knowing that no weapon could “penetrate him”. Each subsequent initiation delved him deeper into the throes of darkness. Not only was he proficient in the creation of charms, he was equally tutored in the art of shooting and could handle any form of advanced weaponry. It was time for his ‘mission’ in the world to commence.

Nicholas was instructed to seek those who had “a bright future” and ensure their destiny was diverted from God’s ways to that of the devil’s. He had warped the minds of many would-be Gospel singers, plunging them down a path of secular music instead. The demonic authority he possessed gave him strange abilities, such as the power to disappear and pass through walls. Attending university in the physical world, the school became his hunting ground – to initiate victims either unto ritual sacrifice or satanic servitude.

However, one day he learned the shocking truth behind his birth – through his mother who came to confront the goddess and demand his return. She killed his own mother before his eyes, demanding that he lay with her corpse for several weeks thereafter for further spiritual fortification. With this numbing reality, Nicholas chose to break free from the clutches of the ‘goddess’ and use his powers for his own purposes. As he struggled to leave, she placed a vicious curse on him – that he would be a condemned thief for the rest of his life.

Several years later, Nicholas had been in over six prisons – once for a period of two years. Despite his uncanny abilities, he was always caught at the point of crime, disgraced and thrown into jail. There, his ‘spiritual mother’ would mock him before eventually setting him free and then throwing him back into incarceration again. In his last imprisonment, she spiritually communicated to him a mission he was to undertake to secure freedom – the destruction of a particular police officer who was “disturbing their kingdom”.

Travelling to Enugu State to execute the mission, Nicholas allowed himself to be arrested so he could be taken to the police station of that police officer – CSP Mashat Danladi. That night, he went through the walls to enter his office, preparing to burn all documents there and steal ammunition – so as to cause the expulsion and disgrace of the police officer. However, something mysterious held him back from committing arson and he returned to his cell.

When called to see the police officer – who happened to be an Emmanuel TV Partner and regular visitor to The SCOAN – he instantly brought forth the New Morning Water and began ministering it to him. Nicholas felt “fire” burning throughout his body and began to vomit out the strange powers within him in the form of two rings and a razor.

Shocked at what had just transpired, CSP Danladi knew this case was far from ordinary and decided to bring the young man to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) for complete deliverance. Last week, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied concerning his case and prayed for him in the power of the Holy Spirit! Ever since entering The SCOAN, the spiritual connection with the female goddess has been severed, Nicholas’ addiction to drugs and alcohol broken and all demonic powers he once possessed conquered.

“I have tasted everything satan has to offer and I can only advise people that Jesus is the only way, truth and life,” Nicholas concluded his incredible testimony by advising. On his own part, CSP Danladi stressed that those in law enforcement should be conscious that spiritual issues require Divine intervention, not just imprisonment and physical punishment.

A LIBERIAN MAN: “I said I was a Nigerian so they would deport me”


Streams of deportees from Libya have been arriving to The SCOAN, seeking the face of God for help and a new beginning. A few who arrived among the groups this week, came out to share their experiences. The first to speak was Cynthia who narrated her horrific experience where, in search of a better life, she found herself sold into prostitution, having to sleep with up to 20 men in a day. She was beaten and injured by the women managing the brothel and at a point, even shot in her leg. The bullet entered her leg and came out her foot, leaving her unable to move for four months. Thrown into prison, she was later deported to Nigeria. It was only here that she was able to find medical care for her ghastly wound. Cynthia advised people not to believe what they are promoting on the internet about the journey to Libya and Europe, that they are false and that the journey is horrific.

Mary had no parents and was convinced to travel to Europe via Libya for a better life to help her family. She left Nigeria and travelled through the desert where she saw multitudes of people dying in the desert with some, buried alive. She explained that her experience in the desert was like fire in hell. When she arrived in Libya, she was forced into prostitution by the person who took her to Libya. The man took a picture of her naked and threatened to post it on the internet if she did not do the work of prostitution. She had to sleep with up to 10 men in a day. On many occasions in the brothel, she was beaten with broken bottles. During a police raid of the brothel, Mary was put into prison with no food or light and later deported back to Nigeria. She advised all that Nigeria is a very blessed country and people should value it and build their life with what God has given them.

Washington, a Liberian national, was deceived by a friend to go to Germany via Libya. When he got to Libya he was kidnapped and put into prison, to be later bailed out by a friend. He spent three days in the desert with no food or water. While there, four of the people he was with were captured again and put into prison. When he finally arrived to the coast of Libya to take the rubber boat across the Mediterranean Sea, he was captured and also put back into prison. He was put on the deportation list but there were no flights back to Liberia. His request was repeatedly denied until he heard from Nigerians there that Prophet T.B. Joshua in Nigeria often helped people who were in terrible situations such as theirs. He then claimed that he was a Nigerian, hoping to also find a way out of Libya and help from the man of God. Washington advised people to never attempt the illegal route through the desert to Libya and Europe, admonishing people to take the legal route by plane. When he came to The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners helped him financially and he began to eat regularly and was given medical assistance for his injuries and illnesses. He shared his heart’s desire was to go back to his country Liberia.

Akeem shared his terrifying experience of being kidnapped and captured in the desert. He was instructed to get his family to send money to bail him out but when he called his mother, she did not believe him. The kidnappers then made a video call to her, showing Akeem being prepared to be hung. She quickly sold her land and sent the money to the kidnappers. Akeem was severely beaten and later put in prison. Sometime later he was released and found a job but after a week of work, instead of paying him, the man pulled out a gun and shot him. Akeem ran away with a broken bone in his arm and was later caught and deported. He advised people not to be deceived, that people are falsely promoting the journey to collect money. Stay in Nigeria because the journey is like hell.

Hearing their distressing experiences, Prophet T.B. Joshua sent financial assistance in the amount of 200,000 naira for each of the deportees and prayed for their future success, in Christ Jesus.
