Offence


Luke 17:1b-Woe unto him through whom they come
Prophet T.B. Joshua

From the genesis of creation to this present generation, there has been a common, rampant and general epidemic which has eaten into the fiber of our everyday relationship and no one is free from this, in spite of whom we are and rank/status we occupy in the society. This malady is present in every society, culture, race, tradition and religion. This common trap or deception used by the devil is known as OFFENCE. According to Luke 17: 1 “Then said he unto the disciples, it is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!” This implies that no matter whom we are, we must be offended, that is, offense must come; For It is impossible to live life without having the time and opportunity to be offended; it is not a question of opportunity to be offended but what your response will be. We should at all times forgive our offenders because Satan knows if our offences are not properly managed it can lead us to sin, that is we should let go of offence. Offence is the effective instrument used by Satan to blind us in our present condition, it is the use of negative words that registers in the heart of the offended, offence is not deadly but feeding on it in our heart makes it deadly. This could come in form of temptations because Satan uses our weaknesses as a bait to tempt us.

When Jesus Christ said on the cross of Calvary “Father Forgive Them”, the word “them” in this statement means both the offenders (those who crucified Him) and the offended (those who were hurt by his crucifixion and nursed the offence in their heart). Those who were offended due to the way Christ was unjustly treated by the people equally sinned just as those that were responsible for His crucifixion. Christ knew on the cross of Calvary that those who were for Him had unconsciously sinned by nursing offence in their heart, then, He quickly prayed to the Father to forgive them – the offender and offended. Offence is not yet a sin when it comes to the mind of the offended until it is nursed and fed upon, therefore making the offender and offended fall into this common trap. Focusing on ourselves is an effective instrument used by Satan to blind us on our present conditions, making us to question God: “why me of all this accusation and disappointments?” We automatically forget the reality of our condition.

Readers might want to question the essence of this write up but we ought to be conscious of the fact that this is an era of temptation. The devil and his cohorts are working effortlessly to make us fall short of God’s glory. This goes specifically to the sympathizers of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), the family of the deceased in particular and the world at large that we should not get offended over what Prophet T.B. Joshua and his ministry are going through in the hands of their adversaries, thereby falling into sin; for it is a deceptive trap of the devil. We should never allow offence/hatred get hold of us because of the unjust judgment from the authorities and the uncalled criticism levied against the Prophet because if we do, we are as much of a sinner as those who criticize and indict the Prophet. We must let go of offence! Offence is very common due to lack of real love. We have almost come to believe that it is a way of life, the truth is our life is centered on how we are doing, feeling, and being treated for it is not all about us but JESUS.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua clearly understands this that is why he does not get offended nor react negatively when people criticize and accuse him without concrete fact and evidence. The Prophet was attacked (The SCOAN guest house building collapse), which was a trap from the devil to make him nurse offence in his heart, but as we all know, the Prophet is far from being offended but the scripture makes us understand that curse (woe) be unto those through whom the offence (attack) comes.

Unlike the authorities handling the case of the collapsed guest house at the SCOAN premises, the Prophet has neither abused nor threatened anyone because he knows these are traps from the devil to make him nurse offence thereby sin against God. When we concentrate or focus on what people do to us, we would end up losing focus on how to handle the situation or condition we find ourselves. Offence acted upon in the heart make one worry about what people do and this cripples our ability to think and exercise faith properly in our present condition. In other words, we cannot think of loving/hating, and think of destroying/caring for others at the same time.vlcsnap-2015-12-31-12h35m52s236

When we apply this principle in our daily routine, we would find out that it is easier to let go of offence rather than nursing it in our hearts. Let us cite the story of Joseph and his brothers; if Joseph was unwilling to forgive the atrocities committed against him by his people, he could have not found himself in the position to aid them during the famine period; for he could not have hated and saved at the same time. Another biblical example concerning offence is cited in the book of Job; if Job had nursed the offence because of his friends’ ridicule and accusations against his faith as a result of his illness and misfortune, God would not have restored his lost wealth and health.

Offence is a common trap or deceptive measure that Satan uses to lure us into sin in order to rob us of our true Son-ship as children of GOD. Hence, this means that it is only when we feed on offence in our heart that it becomes deadly because whatever we conceive in our heart with time, metamorphosis and influences our habits and character in reality. An offence not properly handled can make a Christian possess or produce the fruit of the flesh according to Galatians 5:19-21.

Pray and say after Prophet T.B. Joshua“By the authority in the name of Jesus, I release you from all hurts! I release you from deep hurts! I release you from whatever caused by offence- bitterness, jealousy, anger, pain in the past be released, in the name of Jesus Christ!!!! I command that spirit, every spirit offence might have caused in your life- jealousy, hatred, anger, inferiority, resentment, strifes, outrage. I release you, in the name of Jesus! Be released, in the name of Jesus! In Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen!!!”

Ebenezer Obadare , stop your lies on TB Joshua! Seek God


My dear fellow emeritus associate…kindly accepts my warmth affection. I am pleased that you are spending the commemoration birth of our lord Jesus Christ… compliments of the season my fellow emeritus.
I am quite captivated by your in-debt insight into the “Dangerous lies of TB Joshua”, Dear Mr Obadare.

Ebenezer Obadare

May I precisely debunk your mere peripheral insight about TB Joshua, contrail to your speculations and assumptions, I strongly oppose to your misconception and fallacious few pages article with the aforementioned captioned headline… the news of the declaration of the Leader of the Synagogue Church Of all Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua, as the “2015 Yoruba man of the year”. It is my utmost pleasure to ostensibly clarify you that the Ebge Omo Odua Parapo, is ranked foremost and at the Apex of other Yoruba group drawn far and sundry, comprising of almost (40 indigenous pan Yoruba group globally)
Admits these groups, enthusiastically bestowed this sheer ‘mark of honour and distinction upon TB Joshua’, was carefully selected amongst numerous nominees, irrespective of social statuses, ranks, professional aristocrats and technocrats of the Yoruba’s.
Therefore, may I draw your attention to your non articulated carelessness for wrong construction of grammar thereby insulting the integrity of the Yoruba’s at large? By your profile, you are an adherent advocate of the African condemning gay marriage practices, which is against the Africa culture; this obviously exposes your irrational and nonsensical approach towards values, moral and ethical issues.
I can clearly decipher your ill mannerism and jealously you hold against Prophet TB Joshua, and the Christendom, which our Holy Bible preaches sacred marriage of couples between two different sex, but people like you have turned against the gospel truth, defiled the sacred institutions laid down by God, people like you should honestly seek the face of our creator for reconciliation with Him.
Ironically, I can’t understand your attributing a special mark of distinction to your so called litigation on pilgrims of the SCOAN, permit me reiterate jealousy and ill-mannerism has beclouded your imaginations.
I don’t expect your calibre of person to stoop so low in condemning others. May I urge you to dissuade from your present stance, and hereby refute your non articulated fallacious deceptive article?
My dear so called associate prof. you are very deceptive and fake, stop your lies! Seek God.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM TB JOSHUA


Good morning! We know everyone will be expecting T.B. Joshua to come out as usual for the Candlelight Service this Thursday 31st December 2015. Yes, it is a good idea but the Spirit of God has a better idea to reach people all over the world. There is so much expectation and demand because of T.B. Joshua’s absence from the live services for nearly one year. If we allow all of the people who are planning to come all over the world, there will be no space to contain them.

Because of this, T.B. Joshua will use the medium of Emmanuel TV to talk to you one-on-one. God has prepared him mightily to talk to you live through Emmanuel TV, starting from tomorrow, Monday 28th December 2015. This is the way God wants us to celebrate, instead of everyone to converge here on Thursday.

T.B. Joshua will give God’s opinion to all nations and continents and the solutions for the upcoming year. He cannot afford not to prepare you for next year by telling you God’s opinion. Remember, the prophetic message from last year is still guiding us.

Don’t worry about distance. It is when we are at a distance to the prophet that God’s power manifests even more mightily. This means that this coming Thursday, everyone is to celebrate the Candlelight Service in their own homes.

Whichever medium you are using to watch Emmanuel TV – whether through the internet or satellite – go, service it and get ready! He will start this address from Monday 28th December 2015 on Emmanuel TV, which is now available on DSTV Channel 390. The timing for these live broadcasts will be announced so that people from continents with different time zones can tune in.

We want to stress that there is no other reason for this than those who are planning to come from around the world. Although there is no space to contain the crowds, the Lord has provided a solution on how to meet the needs of the multitudes. God Almighty has provided the way out through the medium of Emmanuel TV where T.B. Joshua will talk to you one-on-one and your needs will be met!

We want to use this opportunity to thank DSTV as a company for giving such coverage and support to Emmanuel TV. The Lord will continue to reward them.

This coming Sunday 3rd January 2016, the first Sunday of the year, we believe God will release T.B. Joshua to join us in the service.

Re: The Dangerous Lies of TB Joshua, By Ebenezer Obadare


It is so ironic and hits me as a shocker when I find out that in this modern age, enlightened minds still choose to dwell in unexamined and preposterous facts. It saddens me when I come to realize how critics can become so desperate to dig out dirt from a pure terrain. So many writers today come into the www world to spread lies and words that have no basis using normative statements instead of empirical approach that has proof and concrete evidence. As Christians or as responsible humans, we are to carefully examine situations before dragging innocent individuals to the dirt or staining one’s reputation just for mere attention. I pity the educational sector of today, it has gotten to the extent that some so-called professors and associate professors write so lamely using trial and error means, presumptions (that is, what they hear and how they feel concerning issues).

The SCOAN building collapse happened since a year back, but some individuals make it seem like it occurs daily. I am not trying to say that the victims who lost their lives are meaningless, I am just saying that as a nation I really think that we are matured and have gotten to a point where we have to let go the thoughts of tragedy.

 Ebenezer Babatunde Obadare- Associate Professor
Ebenezer Babatunde Obadare Associate Professor

Contrary is the case for Ebenezer Obadare who claims to be an associate professor in the University of Kansas. The so called associate professor still keeps dwelling in done and dusted issues which have so far been known to be fabricated. This makes one ask the question; how can a writer with such status still rely on falsifications? The answer is simply that the world is unbecoming. Most of the issues raised by this writer have already been addressed in previous articles: Building Collapse: Five (5) Spurious Lies against T.B Joshua’s Ministry.

Ebenezer Obadare Quotes: “The Egbe, the planning committee, and the alleged Dr. Adewunmi are, in all probability, the same person- yes, you guessed right, T.B. Joshua himself; and if you have been debating whether or not Pastor Joshua is worthy of such an award, then, sadly, you have fallen to his gimmick, which is to deflect attention away from his ongoing legal battle with the Lagos state government.”

The question is, how ethical can it be that the renowned Yoruba group Egbe Omo Oodua Parapo (1945) a group that was among those that advocated for Nigerian independence connived with Prophet T.B Joshua to manufacture an award for himself In order to deflect attention from his ongoing legal battle with the Lagos state government when he was clearly not swayed by previous prestigious awards that were given to him which includes the pan-Yoruba media outlet Irohin-Odua as the Yoruba man of the decade, the Arewa award from the northern part of Nigeria as the Ambassador of Peace and the OFR award of the Federal Republic of Nigeria presented by the late Nigerian President Umaru Musa Yar’adua (of blessed memory). All these prestigious awards of the past did not influence the one sided verdict of the coronal magistrate, why can one feel that the recent award from Egbe Omo Oodua Parapo will…? READ MORE…

HOW I OVERCAME DEPRESSION!!!


Rebeca Testimony Rebeca Garcia-Escobar from USA shares a touching testimony of how she broke free from the fatiguing grip of depression after encountering Emmanuel TV:

“For many years, since I was a teenager, I struggled with loneliness and depression. This affected me because no matter where or who I was with or the blessings that surrounded me, any little problem that I’d have would remind me of how alone, unappreciated and unloved I was and would put me in a state of anger or depression.

“For as long as I could remember, I would spend many hours a day crying and feeling sorry for myself. I was so miserable all the time that I became aggressive with my husband and my small children. Afterwards I would come to my senses and say, ‘Why did I say or do those things?’ I especially felt worse when I would be angry at my little children and then realise that they’re just babies and I should be gentle with them.

“During both my pregnancies in 2009 and 2011, I had so many conflicts at home that I spent most of my time crying alone and swallowing my tears. Since I got married, my depression became so bad such that there were many times that I spent days lying on the couch without any desire to care for myself or even my children’s basic needs.

“It was so hard for me to care for my children or my husband that my family suffered a lot because of the state I was in. Instead of finding comfort in my local church, they would criticise me when they didn’t see me for many days. This discouraged me even more but God’s mercy sustained me.

“I never saw a doctor for help because nowadays doctors solve everything with drugs and i didn’t want that. However, one day I stumbled across a video of Prophet T.B. Joshua on YouTube. After watching Emmanuel TV, though inconsistently at first, I knew that my problem was spiritual and only God could deliver me. At the end of 2013, I began watching Emmanuel TV with great devotion. I began actually listening to the teachings and the messages began to strengthen my faith and encourage me.

“By December 2013 I was convinced that I could not give up until I visited SCOAN to receive deliverance. To the glory of God I was able to come and visit in February 20114. Prior to going to the SCOAN, I had a lot of opposition at home and the enemy would bombard me with negative thoughts that I was wasting my time and money, that I would not be delivered but come back the same. I fought against those thoughts even during my stay at SCOAN.

“To the glory of God on Sunday February 23rd 2014, Jesus Christ delivered me through one of the wise men from that evil spirit that made me and my family miserable. I then met with the man of God who gave me Anointing Water as well as Anointing Stickers in both Spanish and English.

“Ever since I returned home, I have never again felt depression or loneliness! My attitude towards my husband and children improved drastically. Whereas before I had no control over how I felt or acted, now – no matter what problem I may have – nothing and no one can take away the immense peace and joy in my heart. In fact I am pregnant with my third child and though I continue to have some challenges, I trust in God and the peace in my heart is unshakeable. Glory to God!!! I am so grateful to Him.”

THANKFUL FOR A PRAYER ANSWERED!


Navin Joseph from India testifies to a dramatic turnaround in his life after listening to T.B. Joshua’s teachings and praying along with him on YouTube.

“I want to testify timagefortestimonyhat I am now am blessed with a very good job in Abu Dhabi. I started watching Prophet T.B. Joshua’s messages on YouTube. I started to pray how Prophet  T.B. Joshua taught us in the messages, especially when he said that our heart is the contact point of God and only faith pleases God. He said that distance is not a barrier. Every night I used to watch and listen to his messages with a lot of attention. I learnt how to read the Bible – slowly and attentively. I heard this message from the Pastors’ Conference in South Korea. I’m so lifted up now  and my way of praying has changed. I keep praying in my heart, “Take more of me Jesus and give me more of You.” Thank You Jesus for answering my prayer and God bless you Man of God.”

Morning Water Prepares The Way For MIRACLE BABY BOY!


Jonathan Bunda Bukankala from Zambia shares how the Morning Water was ministered and brought an end to frustration and disappointment in his household.

babytestimonephoto“Emmanuel!! In 2014, my cousin was traveling from Lusaka, Zambia  to The SCOAN for prayer and deliverance. They came to my home before going to the airport and I told them to bring me Morning Water. We had been trying to have a baby for years. When they came back, for sure, they brought me Morning Water. Later that night, my wife and I prayed and sprayed the Morning Water. Two months later, my wife conceived whom I have married to for 4 years now. As I speak now she is the mother and I am the father of a baby boy who was born on 16/01/2015. Praise be to God. I just want to tell all those who are watching just to have faith in God and trust in Him to provide.”

CAUGHT in GUNFIRE battle, SAVED by GRACE!


testimony1Mr  Olatunji Dehinbo testifies to God’s mighty protection power through the Morning Water….

“Emmanuel!!! I employ the people of God to thank God for saving my life from being hit by an armed robber’s stray bullet in Portharcourt, Rivers State of Nigeria when they were exchanging gun battle with police on Thursday. I was driving along Elekaia Housing Estate when an oncoming vehicle gave a signal that I should turn back which I immediately did because I could sense danger.I decided to pass through another route in order to avoid any danger. But to my greatest dismay, I didn’t know that I was going to the battle ground between Police and armed robbers.I was already trapped before I knew what was happening. I immediately jumped out of my car and ran inside the building where I managed to park my car. Immediately I entered, the real battle started.

There was serious shooting at the front of the building and bullets hit the front of the building in the exact location where I parked my car and pieces of cement block scattered all over my car. As at that point, I thought my car was badly hit by the bullets. But I remembered that I have a permanent MORNING WATER inside the car. So at that point, I remembered the MORNING WATER inside my pocket and I immediately sprayed it on myself and my surroundings while lying down on the floor to avoid being hit by stray bullets. The shooting lasted for almost one hour. When the shooting finally subsided, one of the women in the building exclaimed that she was sorry for the owner of the car that was seriously hit by the bullets.

Emmanuel!!!!!!! To my greatest surprise on getting to my car, no single bullet touched my car. I simply removed the pieces of blocks being hit by the bullet on top of my car and drove off. Emmanuel!!!!!!! (God is indeed really with us, Amen)”

Saved From Crushed Car!!


Asuzu Romanus speaks of God’s awesome divine protection revealed through the Anointing Sticker.

“Just this morning, I went out for work with my Anointing Sticker in my pocket.I took a taxi and there was a lot of traffic. Then, one huge trailer fully loaded failed to brake and crushed almost six vehicles. The taxi I was inside was the first one to be crushed but behold, nothing happened to me. I came out of the taxi without a scratch and said thank you JESUS!”car testimony2

A moment of FAITH STOPS 16 YEARS OF PAIN


Mikateko Virginia Sikhwivhilu from South Africa shares how she received healing from manyyears of severe hip pain.

healed from hip pain“I had a pain in my right hip for the past 16 years. One day I told myself that enough is enough. I followed a prayer with the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV and got my healing. After some few days, I had a dream  where the man of God was praying for me again. When I showed him my hip again, he said I already prayed for you. So I thank God for that, Good morning!!”

“I SAW A VISION OF JESUS CHRIST!”


Rolando from USA had an incredible encounter when he slept after praying with T.B. Joshua on YouTube. Be blessed as you read his experience.

“I found on YouTube a video where Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying for the healing and deliverance of viewers all over the world. After Prophet T.B. Joshua finished his prayer, viewers were asked to touch the screen. So I touched the screen of my iPad several times. When the video finished, I put away my iPad and went to sleep but nothing happened almost midnight at that time. I was laying down on my back my hand cross my chest with my eyes closed. Moments later, I felt a fire burning in my chest spreading all over, covering my chest and upper arm. I felt the heat in my chest tried to rub it off but I could not touch it. A few minutes later, the burning was gone. I then felt the fire on the right side of my rib-cage on only a small area, not spreading. It was just like a burning arrow had hit me in my side. Then, I felt the fire in the middle of my feet and a few minutes later, the fire was gone. Suddenly I was crying so deeply. I felt my body was very light and also my body elevated off the bed, my body was floating. While I was in this position, I saw three images of Christ Jesus: He was carrying the cross, He was meditating and praying and He was standing. Moments later, all the images in the vision vanished. And I just remained in my bed crying and praying. I thank the Lord God that He came to me that night and touched, connected and delivered me, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. AMEN. God Bless you Man of God.

DELIVERED FROM HOMOSEXUALITY


When the evangelists sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua were offering the Mass Prayer during The SCOAN Sunday Service, the evil spirit in Mr Chisom began to manifest, confessing how it had possessed him with the spirit of homosexuality. He was delivered by the power of the Holy Ghost.
Mr Chisom’s problem started one night when he dreamt and saw himself walking and acting like a girl. He also found himself swimming in the river in that dream in which he saw himself as a queen. Physically, he would see himself acting like a woman – wear women’s clothes, make up and put on earrings. This spirit made him to sleep with other men. He had been to many churches for solution all to no avail. He visited a spiritualist who aggravated his problem as he would have intimacy with him every night. He also had the spirit of stealing which led him to steal his mother’s money. As a result, the mother ran into huge debts.
He soon discovered Emmanuel TV and decided to come to The SCOAN. During the Mass Prayer, he saw Holy Ghost fire everywhere while the evangelists were praying. According to him, the demonic queen that had possessed him appeared and pointed her staff towards the evangelists but she could not do anything as she was overpowered. Suddenly, the demonic queen disappeared. Since his deliverance, he no longer acts like a woman or have the urge of sleeping with other men.
His mother testified of the goodness of God in the life of his son – delivering him from the spirit of homosexuality. She advised people to seek the face of God for their deliverance.

HEALTH AND FINANCIAL LIFE RESTORED


When Mrs Tlhomamiso Mogaetsho from Botswana lost her job, life became so difficult. She decided to invest the entitlement she received at her work place into a business which flopped. As if this was not enough, she suffered a terrible migraine which refused to budge despite all the medications she took. She then decided to come to The SCOAN where she received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua, who also gave her the Morning Water which she ministered in Jesus’ name. And that was the end of migraine in her life. As she continued to minister the Morning Water, she started a business of her own which earned her a huge contract. With this came a financial breakthrough in her life and she was able to build a guest house. She soon won another huge contract and she was able to build her own house. Inspired by the teachings of Prophet T.B. Joshua on giving, she provided accommodation for a less privileged by building a house for the person.
