TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com
From divine revelations uttered through prophecy, to a chain-shattering mass prayer that broke the yokes and set free those that were in bondage, last Sunday service at The SCOAN was one to remember. Windows of Heaven were opened; and what followed was an outpouring of God’s anointing that filled the auditorium. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua
commanded out contrary spirits and proclaimed healing and deliverance, in Jesus’ name, the power of the Holy Spirit swept through the church, setting people free from various afflictions. The man of God also took the congregation on ‘a visit to Abraham’ when he preached with power on the need to place one’s faith in God alone.
Picking Genesis 22:8 as proof text, the man of God said Christians should emulate Abraham who, when asked by his son where the lamb for the burnt offering was, said, “God himself will provide.”
He explained, “When you are facing challenges, you say, God Himself will save me. When you lack finances, you say God Himself will provide. Abraham’s faith was not on Isaac but on God. If our faith is on the Giver (God), even when what is given is taken away, we will still have hope. When what is given is taken away, that is the more reason we should believe in God, have faith in God the more. Abraham was asked to sacrifice the only son. Assume he had faith on his only son, he would not have courage to obey God’s instruction. Satan wants you to curse God. Satan wants you to live outside the truth where your light is coming from, while you are in pain, while under temptation or affliction.”
Speaking on the vanity of placing faith on one’s possessions, he said: “If your faith or belief is on your possessions, you will continue to be a friend of satan, you will continue to be tempted. If satan knows you like your possessions more than the Giver of the gift, you will not have a moment’s rest.”
