VIDEO – TB Joshua Visits 150 Year Olds!!!


BY Ihechukwu Njoku

tb joshua, scoan. charity A video showing popular Nigerian cleric TB Joshua visiting and financially supporting elderly people in a rural Nigerian community – who astonishingly said they are over the age of 150-years-old – has gone viral. 

The clip, which has been viewed over 150,000 times in less than 24 hours, was published to Joshua’s YouTube channel Emmanuel TV late on Sunday 26th January 2019.

“Viewers, we should see giving to others as an assignment from God because that only comes to God that comes from Him,” Joshua states in a short address before he is shown entering several homes in a rustic setting accompanied by one of his daughters.

“It pleases God in His mercy to bless you with long life,” Joshua says to one of the super-centenarians who said he was over 150 years old, before giving the elderly man N100,000.

Gifts ranging between N100,000 to N200,000 were given to all the aged people he encountered, with Joshua kneeling to receive the heartfelt prayers they offered for him in appreciation.

“You will conquer all evil. You will overcome. You will not lose the Kingdom of God,” one of the senior citizens prayed for Joshua, with tears streaming down his face after receiving the gift, which he promptly kept underneath his mattress.

“What I am concerned about is the youth; please pray for them,” pleaded another supercentenarian who said he was 127 years old, adding that he prayed for Joshua three times daily and the world was in the ‘end-times’.

“Let us give for God’s sake and receive more of whatever we give. Help for God’s sake and be helped. Love for God’s sake and be loved. Care for God’s sake and be cared for,” Joshua counselled viewers amidst his humanitarian mission.

The clip clearly struck a chord within viewers online, many admitting it moved them to tears and inspired them to equally reach out to elderly ones.

“I feel so emotional watching this,” commented Dr. Njipay Sophon on YouTube. “Tears are coming out of my eyes and I feel like I need to do something for others.”

Others hoped clergymen would follow in Joshua’s footsteps, singling out the ‘humility’ of his actions.

“As a pastor you need show the example of what you are preaching,” wrote Iko Jankasa on Facebook in response to the video. “It’s not about just making noise in the church.”

According to official statistics, the oldest living person is 117-year-old Kane Tanaka from Japan although there are cases of several elderly citizens in rural areas of Africa who say they are significantly older.

Emmanuel TV’s YouTube channel is the first ever Christian ministry platform to surpass 1,500,000 subscribers on the popular video-sharing website.

The Spirit of the Lord is Mighty Upon Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN


tb joshua, scoanOur testimony is that the Spirit of the Lord is present mightily on prophet TB Joshua the Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria. This is why he has a robust ministry according to what prophet Isaiah had prophesied concerning the Lord Jesus, (see Isaiah 11:2-3).”And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:”

Jesus confirmed this in Luke (4:18-19), where He said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

These Spirits of the Lord are namely, the Spirit of the Lord,  the Spirit of wisdom, of understanding, of counsel, of might, of knowledge and of fear of the LORD; and these spirits are before the throne of God.  Any Bible student interested in the ministry of SCOAN, led by prophet TB JOSHUA, will always notice the following functions as departments, namely  (1) prophecy, (2)service or ministry in the form of helping, (3) teaching, ( 4) encouragement and family reconciliation, (5) generosity in giving  (6) guidance, leadership and discipleship and (7) love and compassion.

Each Christian must recognize the necessity for this abiding  Spirit of the Lord in our daily living and be delighted in the fear of the Lord. This spirit of the LORD is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and where He is, there is liberty. When this Spirit comes upon a servant of God that individual servant may prophesy and be turned into another man. when Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed David, in the midst of his brethren, the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. Hence Prophet TB Joshua, a man full of the spirit of the Lord,  is a great encouragement to the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Danger In Collecting Offerings – TB Joshua


By Ihechukwu Njoku

Prophet TB Joshua

Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua has sensationally declared that “most offerings collected in churches all over the world are a curse, not a blessing.”

Joshua, who was speaking to a packed congregation at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) was responding to a question raised about why offerings are not collected during his weekly Monday ‘Living Water Service’.

“We cannot begin bothering distressed people – I mean, the sick ones, the poor ones – asking for financial support,” the cleric explained.

Adding that although it was Scriptural to collect an offering, “The question remains: Whom are we asking for support? The distressed, the sick, the poor?”

Enlightening congregants further, he stated, “When you are healed and delivered, your ‘Thank you’ is a blessing from God. But when you are distressed, your ‘Thank you’ is distress. When you are sick, your ‘Thank you’ is sick.”

Joshua then declared: “You are your ‘Thank you’ because you cannot live above your word. That is why most gifts today are a curse, not a blessing… That is why you have to be very careful.”

Sharing practical examples from daily life, the cleric explained how judging by mere appearance is misleading as people are often pretentious.

“I know people beyond appearance because I look at the heart,” he revealed. “Appearance is deceptive.”

The video of Joshua’s short sermon on YouTube elicited a deluge of responses from followers, many declaring it was the “first time” they had heard a pastor explain such subject matter.

TB Joshua’s ‘Morning Water’ Saves Zimbabwean Mad Man For 25years In South Africa


A touching testimony from South Africa of reconciliation and restoration after years of madness, homelessness and family separation has been shared on TB Joshua’s official Facebook Page.

According to the testimony shared by Geogina Gumindega, she had visited Joshua’s popular church in Lagos, Nigeria in October 2019 and received some ‘Morning Water’ – an item believed to be ‘anointed by Jesus Christ’.

Geogina subsequently learned of a heart-breaking situation from one of her close friends whose brother had mysteriously disappeared for twelve years after leaving Zimbabwe for South Africa.

According to the lengthy tale, the man – whose name was given as Leon Ayamu – “left home without the blessing of his parents and also ran away from a woman who had just given birth to his daughter.”

The situation deteriorated in South Africa to the point that Ayamu “started to live in the bush” and fell into mental degradation.

It was so bad that he was “surviving solely on fruits and vegetables” with “monkeys for companionship” in his homeless state.

His discovery was nothing short of miraculous! “We ministered the Morning Water on his sister at 11pm on December 7th,” Miss Gumindega explained. “At 9am on December 8th, she saw her brother by the roadside on her way to the supermarket,”

“God had put him in the right place to be seen by his sister who was not even looking for him that morning!”

The family were apprehensive “due to his rude and violent nature at the time” but “managed to convince him to follow us home”.

Thereafter, Joshua’s ‘Morning Water’ was ministered to Ayamu and placed in the water in which he took his bath.

“After this first bath, he went on to sleep for six hours that afternoon. According to him, he started to remember his family and actually miss them after waking up from this sleep!”

The path to mental stability had begun as the dishevelled man told his family “he began to crave human companionship” instead of merely staying with animals.

A matter of weeks later, with plenty of prayer with the ‘Morning Water’ and tender care, Ayamu “has regained consciousness, accepted Jesus as his Saviour and watches Emmanuel TV 24/7!”

Reflecting on his old life, the restored mad man said it felt “as though he lived in the jungle for only a month yet, in reality it had been over a decade!”

He has since reconnected with his estranged family members in Zimbabwe, “apologised to his parents for his rebellion” and broken free from an addiction to codeine and marijuana that fuelled him in the bush.

However, Ayamu’s tale is marked with disturbing and sordid details.

“He confessed to having suffered physical and sexual abuse from other men who took advantage of the vulnerability of homeless and mentally ill people,” Geogina revealed, explaining that at times he would “wake up with male semen all over his body”.

Gumindega hoped his testimony would “challenge our perspective of the kind of help we give to vulnerable people in his former state.”

Pictures of Ayamu’s condition when he was discovered in the bush and his current state a month later after returning to normalcy were equally included in the remarkable testimony to authenticate its contents.

With the abundance of such ‘testimonies’, TB Joshua’s church continues to attract followers from around the world, with official immigration statistics revealing six out of every ten visitors to Nigeria are bound for The SCOAN.

Did TB Joshua Predict Prince Harry’s ‘RESIGNATION’ From UK Royal Family?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Announce Shocking Move to ‘Step Back as Senior Members of Royal Family’

On Wednesday 8th January 2019, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle made a shocking announcement, effectively ‘resigning’ from their duties within the British Royal Family.

However, merely days earlier, Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) had warned of impending separation within the Royal Family in his much-publicized prophecy for 2020.

Prophet TB Joshua Praying at Mountain Top

“Pray for unity and understanding among the Royal Family – because of what I am seeing,” the cleric stated in the word of prophecy written on December 28th, 2019 which he said he ‘received’ after time in a ‘prayer mountain’.

“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote on their official Instagram account, adding the decision came “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”.

The announcement from the famous duo exposed the widening rifts within the British monarchy, already exacerbated by the fallout over Prince Andrew’s alliance with the late convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America,” the statement continued, stating this would provide them “with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

Whilst releasing the prophecy publicly on Sunday 5th January 2019, Joshua explained that many of the events he had foreseen had begun to take place or would happen imminently.

In the same prophecy, TB Joshua warned of “an incident” in the nation of Iran “that will cause panic throughout the world”, confirmed days later when a US drone strike killed prominent Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

The message regarding Iran followed a prophecy Joshua gave a decade earlier in which he warned of the repercussions of an “attack on Iran” by “super-powers”, going on his knees to pray for peace in the volatile region.

Concerning the United Kingdom, Joshua additionally warned in his 2020 prophecy of “agitation from a section that wants to leave” and also called for prayers “for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh” regarding ill-health.

He equally cautioned about the “economic repercussions” stemming from Brexit, insisting it “needs more time to stand on its feet” with the co-operation of the European Union leadership.

Since its release, the video of the prophecy published on Emmanuel TV’s popular YouTube Channel – which included messages for Nigeria, Russia and USA – has racked up over 250,000 views.

Prophet TB Joshua Tagging 2020 as a Year of Humility


tb joshua 2020
Prophet TB Joshua

If all of us are subject to one another in true love and being clothed with humility then the prophecy of prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN ought to be good news because our God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

It is said that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and before honour is humility. If this is also our social condition then we know humility will produce promotion and honour. A year of humility will turn out to produce the best in us, growing us in God’s designed path and plans for our different communities.

It is, therefore, becoming very clear that prophet TB Joshua is talking about a change that comes from being humbled; a humbling change forced down on a proud community of people. The society will be humbled and individuals will be humbled to produce the desired people God would want. A change that is directed by God may not be an easy path to travel in a society walking and living on a path of impunity. In the Bible people were in their comfort zones and all of a sudden, God brought about a humbling change that guided their lives onto a completely new path.

Noah was asked to build a huge ship in the desert, Abraham was asked to leave his comfort zone to an unknown destination, Joseph forced out of the warm arms of his loving father into slavery, and countless others including Peter asked to abandoned his fishing profession to becoming an Apostle of Jesus Christ. It’s only God Himself that can lead us through by enforcing His divine will on a society bent only on self domination.

For people not familiar with prophecy, and confusing same with scientific prediction or forecasting, a little-noted may be needed. The purpose of both prophecy and prediction is the same. Each goes out to tell what will happen in the future. However, their source of authority for this information is very different. Whereas prophecy relies on the authority of God-given information prediction is based on man’s ability to determine what may happen in the future. Prediction is sometimes right but often wrong because it depends on men and the volatile environment. On the other hand, a true prophecy is never wrong because it always carries the authority of God’s truth and character. We appreciate prophet TB Joshua for being concerned in a world where people don’t seem to care nor value things of God such as praying, teaching or prophesying.

Prophet TB Joshua

During his church service at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 5th January 2020, Prophet TB Joshua released his much-anticipated prophetic message for the year 2020. 

The eleven words of prophecy touched on a wide range of topics, including messages for Nigeria, Iran, America, Russia and the United Kingdom.

The cleric, who was absent during last week’s service at an undisclosed ‘prayer mountain’ where he was ‘seeking the face of God’, explained the revelations came to him on December 28th 2019.

“Let us pray for the Nigerian government to be able to finish this year without an interlude that will cause a situation of for and against,” Joshua stated in a parabolic message to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, calling on people to join him in prayer for Nigeria.

He additionally addressed Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. “Vice President, it is not yet over. Expect much more pressure. The pressure will be so much. I pray you will be able to stand the pressure.”

The cleric revealed he had foreseen the US attack which led to the death of Iranian military Commander Qassem Soleimani, sparking a dramatic escalation in tensions between the two nations.

“An incident will happen to the nation Iran that will cause panic throughout the world. We are praying to know the mind of God concerning this,” he wrote in the prophetic message on December 28th, just days before the deadly drone strike in Baghdad, Iraq.

Joshua called on America to “invest more in agriculture”and “encourage their farmers” due to impending economic challenges in the nation.

This mirrored his message for the world concerning the economic situation. “Agriculture will help the economy because the economy will have a backlash. Let us farm to help the economy.”

He equally spoke of the upcoming Presidential elections in USA scheduled for November 2020. “Also, approach to the security issue will affect the candidates and swing voters in the next election. It will be tough in the election. They should pray against a recount. It may be too tight.”

Joshua then addressed Russia, calling on the nation to“pray for their leader to avert his being on the sickbed. There is a ladder to go up – if this is averted,” he added.

Speaking in more general terms to leaders worldwide, he added: “Many sicknesses and diseases that leaders have been treating privately will surface this year. They will become bedridden and many will not make it.”

Regarding the United Kingdom, Joshua spoke of “agitation from a section that wants to leave”, additionally calling for prayers for the Royal Family.

“Brexit needs more time to stand on its feet – with more co-operation of the EU leaders,” he added. “If not, there will be economic repercussions and the cost of things will become unbearable. With time and preparation, all will be well.” 

In a message affecting the general populace, Joshua warned of a ‘common medicine’ that will “cause people to be ‘high’ to die, to commit suicide”. “The governments of each nation should watch out and put a check on pharmaceutical drugs that come to their country,” he cautioned.

“This year will be a year of humility,” he continued, stressing that “this year, the Lord will humble us with our challenges.” 

Joshua revealed the only remedy was to “move closer to God”, explaining that weaknesses and bad habits would “destroy us or exposes us” as a means of bringing humility.

Finally, the cleric spoke of those involved in the work of God. “People will be getting tired this year because the work of God is not by power and might,” he revealed, warning of “so many challenges, tribulations and burdens they will not be able to bear”.

“Our prayer warriors are on their knees praying to make sure the changeable ones are changed,” the cleric stressed, adding that two additional parts of the prophecy would be revealed in due course. “Prophecy is a guide to life.”

The service was broadcast live on Emmanuel TV, which just became the world’s first Christian ministry YouTube channel to break the milestone of obtaining 1,500,000 subscribers.
