Prophet TB Joshua

T.B. Joshua is the General Overseer of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN). The Founder is Jesus Christ! He is just one of those who has humbly submitted to the will of God (Isaiah 6:8).

Born on June 12th 1963 in Ondo State, Nigeria, T.B. Joshua’s journey is a humbling story of how God raised a young man from a poverty-stricken home to lead an international ministry that would attract thousands worldwide to witness the reality of God’s power today.

From dropping out of secondary school in his first year to working in a poultry farm; from teaching little children while attending evening classes to washing people’s legs on the muddy streets of Lagos; from a forty day fast to receiving a divine call and starting a ministry with a mere eight members – the life of T.B. Joshua is a story of amazing grace and unwavering focus. Today, he is a mentor to presidents yet a friend to the widows and less privileged, a role model to his generation yet a humble and hardworking man, toiling tirelessly for the advancement of God’s kingdom. His story is an encouragement that there is hope for the weak.

TB Joshua Gives His Testimony

Mr Paul Nwali, Anambra – Nigeria, had a problem of addiction to drinking alcohol for nine years.


He wasn’t able to concentrate on anything he was doing. This resulted in setbacks in his life. He was privileged to come to The SCOAN and obtain the Anointing Water which he prayerfully ministered to himself. Thereafter, the urge to drink left him and he has since quit consumption of alcohol.

Another breakthrough he had experienced was that he has a parcel of land he wished to develop but on which was a certain ancient tree that the elders warned should not be cut down else he would see the repercussions. Even some labourers he had sent to clear the land in readiness for construction work refused to cut down the tree because they were aware of the evil associated with the tree. Mr Nwali undertook to personally minister the Anointing Water round the foot of the tree. Immediately after his prayer, a strong wind came and pulled the tree which felled onto another man’s compound. When the villagers got wind of the uprooting of the ancient tree they rushed to the scene and asked him why he had felled the tree and he told them that it was the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua that brought the tree down.  It was apparently clear from the photograph he had taken that the tree was not hewed down with axe or saw but had been pulled from the roots by an act of God. He has now been able to commence building on the site without any malevolent consequences. He advises that we should do our best and leave the rest to God.

Mrs Essie Sekyi from Ghana, had for many years been experiencing troubles including health setbacks and stagnation in her career.

She had read a book titled, “Dangerous Prayer Book” with a view to improving on her prayer life but reading that book complicated her problems

rather than help her. She had been posted to a department in her job but was unable to function effectively. While in that department, however, she took to watching Emmanuel TV and began to experience positive changes in life. She was also privileged to meet with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua and was prayed for. Thereafter, she started having breakthroughs in her job. She returned to The SCOAN and was prayed for by Prophet T.B. Joshua. When she went back to Ghana, her Director mentioned to her that there was some opportunities for promotion in her organization and advised her to apply. She did apply and was invited for the interview. Before attending the interview she prayed again with the Anointing Water which resulted in her being promoted to Assistant Commissioner for Training – a position far beyond her former position as Store Assistant.

Another testimony she shared was that she had been diagnosed with a heart disease leading to an enlarged heart. She used to be afraid of climbing stairs because she would lose her breath and become tired if she climbed stairs. Upon ministering the Anointing Water, she received her healing which was confirmed by a medical report she displayed. She advised people to follow the “Standard For Life” episodes on Emmanuel TV which is one avenue that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua is using to build up viewers’ faith.

The Sunday Service reached a breath-taking point when a young lady who had come to The SCOAN from Tanzania interrupted the prophecy

ministration I WALKED FOR THE FIRST TIMEbeing conducted by the man of God, Prophet T.B Joshua. She cried out to draw attention to the fact that her paralyzed elderly mother was sitting in one of the overflow canopies in a wheelchair. When Prophet T.B. Joshua inquired what the matter was, the young lady said that her mother had been confined to the wheelchair for three years. She had been affected psychologically and was unable to perform her duties as a teacher. She had sought solution from several hospitals and referrals before it was suggested that she undergo an operation as that was the best the medics could do to save her life. As soon as Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the physically disabled woman, she rose from the wheelchair and walked in the midst of The SCOAN congregation for the first time in years. Glory be to the Master Healer – Jesus Christ!

The congregation couldn’t help but join the overwhelmed woman and her daughter in a victory dance that lasted a while, as people besieged the woman to give her heart-rending hugs.

My family background irritated me – TB Joshua

TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

I found myself in a family background that irritated me.

In those early years of my life, I knew I would be blamed for what I gave my attention to – so I took a different direction in order to achieve a different solution.

Before this time, I was a member of the Anglican Church and participated actively in many church activities. On three different occasions, I was appointed the chairman of Children’s Harvest/ Thanksgiving ceremony. During my elementary education at St. Stephen Anglican Primary School, Agbalaku, Arigidi, I was leader of the student Christian fellowship.

I taught my colleagues the Scriptures without formal Bible training. In my dreams, I was always taught the Scriptures; that gave me an edge over other student colleagues, even my teacher. I was the smallest in the class but led the prayer during the school devotions. My teacher, Mrs Margaret Tolani Adejumo, and my colleagues usually called me ‘small pastor’.

I recognised early enough that victory obtained through Christ was a time past victory. I mean, it is victory assured. Rather than despair and blame my situation on family background, I began to be proud of my situation in order to feel Christ’s victory over me.

I became content with my situation, knowing that my situation is redeemable through Christ and that the redemption was a time-past one. I mean, redemption assured. Then I began to take God at His Word in order to have His way.

Nobody is too good or too bad to qualify for His grace. Remember, it was possible for me to sit somewhere and begin to make excuses for my situation. I never did. Whatever I am today is a product of that conviction that victory through Christ is victory indeed. The rest is history.

Today, many people blame their situation on family background. Some would say, “I am poor because everyone in my family is poor.” If you make excuses for being poor, your poverty cannot be excused. Remember, you are responsible for what you give your attention to; so it is unnecessary to blame your situation on anyone. Today, it is common for people to blame their failure on their family background, whereas they attribute their success to their personal effort. If you attribute your success to your personal effort, you should also accept the blame for your failure. When we make excuses for our wrongdoing, such misdeeds would not be excused.

God has a time for everything: A time to grow, a time to face realities of life, a time to overcome and a time to show the proceeds of victory.Ecclesiastes 3:1

I want to let you know that this record is not in anyway intended to show off – I mean, it is not a way of saying, “I have arrived”, but my own way of glorifying God for what He is doing in our lives. It is my own way of giving testimony to the goodness of God in my life. First, to show my total dependence on God and second, to encourage the weak that there is hope; Jesus is the hope.

Life is a warfare, and in a war there are many battles to be won. Each time God leads us through a battle, it is in our own interest to testify to His goodness, as a way of thanksgiving for not allowing our adversaries to triumph over us. If God had not overcome for us, there would be no need to show this record, just as there would be no need for this story.
