North Korea Tension – Let’s Try The Principle Of LOVE


Since the past years, Prophet T.B Joshua has been given words of Prophecies and warning to the nations of the world about the nuclear warhead programs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea). Even though then, many experts underestimated the North Korea capability to develop a sophisticated ballistic missile that can carry a nuclear warhead as far as another continent. Prophet T.B Joshua, who has seen what’s about to happen, called on the United Nations to consider a sincere negotiation with the North Korea leader, instead of sanctions that hurt only the vulnerable Koreans and not the ruler using the missile test.

In one of the Prophetic warning on Sunday 3rd January 2016, Prophet T.B Joshua told the world how the Spirit of God took him to a place in the North Korea nation, where deadly sophisticated weapons unknown to the world were being kept. He warned that if such weapons are used to strike a nation, the damage will be very tragic. These were his words: “We have to pray for the President of North Korea. Pray for North Korea. The reason why I am saying it – I am seeing an arrow from there and it will affect the world, if not a section of the world. An arrow from there. So, let us live at peace because the war we are fighting already both in Syria and others is still there. We cannot afford another one again. The whole world would be in confusion. Because what I saw – there are some weapons there the world does not know about. If they throw that arrow, there will be confusion. Remember, there is fight everywhere. Adding this one to the fight means there will be confusion all over the world.”

It was however obvious that those concerns raised by the Prophet were not taken into consideration. Today the world can see that the Prophet was right. The North Korea ruler has been able to advance his missile capability beyond what experts thought. And this the Prophet has almost in every past year till date warned the world to take seriously. He even advised the world governing body (United Nations) to urgently call for roundtable negotiations to ease the tension that the issue has so far generated. The Prophet continues to emphasise that sanctions and threat of war will not help solve the problem, but we should extend our hands and hearts of LOVE towards our neighbour to put an end to the whole tension.

There is the need for the civilized world to understand that war is becoming an old fashion way of resolving conflicts. This is the time the world governing body have to starts enacting and advocating the principle of LOVE, concession, negotiation and compromise in solving world problems, instead of sanctions that have never bring any meaningful reconciliation. There is no way the world can be a better place for us and our unborn generation, if we keep on hearing the drum of war among nations, instead of the melodious rhymes of peace and tranquillity.

What is war? It is simply the killing of your fellow human with same flesh and blood – destruction of valuable human lives and properties. Warfare has never favoured any parties involved. Even the so called ‘Victor’ will also have its loss to count. Wars don’t always end in the way we envision it. Especially, these periods where nuclear weapons are now being displayed like toys by nations. We don’t need to be told that war this time around will be very catastrophic.

For Prophet T.B Joshua to be so much concern about this issue, shows that he has seen something disastrous that he want the world to prevent from happening and this can only be possible if everyone involves would be willing to embrace peace.

Prophet T.B Joshua is so much concern about world peace. He wants a crisis free world. Where there will be no intimidation, political, economic and religious oppression. A place inhabitable for every human race, without the fear of extinct. A place, where every nation of the earth under God is free to determine her destiny without interference and meddling by other powerful nations.

God LOVE the United States of America, so also He LOVES the nation of North Korea. We all are God’s creations. My brother and sister in North Korea are not my enemies, just as my brother and sister in the United States are not my enemies. We are brothers and sisters from the same womb of one creator – we are the human race. One was made red, the other black, and the other white and so on. For the reason that our skin colours differ does not mean we are not one, even children of the same parents don’t have the same trait. God is our single Parent. Every human race is a creation of His image and likeness. It is the devil that is bringing enmity amongst us and making us think we are different.

The well-being of a North Korean should be a thing of concern to an American, so as the safety of an American should be a thing of concern to a North Korea. It is normal for brothers and sisters to quarrel, but that those not justifies them killing each other just to prove a point. It does not make sense. Please let’s come together and find a solution. There is always a way out to any conflict.

We have tried sanctions and threats; I think it is time for us to try LOVE. Let just give LOVE a chance and see if it will work out. LOVE maybe foolish, but it is wise. LOVE maybe weakness, but it is the strength. And LOVE may seem defeats, but it the victor. MAY THE GOOD LORD BLESS US ALL!

Modern Christianity in the Face of Homosexuality and Transgender


God loves Homosexual (persons) but hate Homosexuality (Sin)

The contemporary world that is believed to be civilized seems to want to do away with the naturally acceptable norms because of the so-called ‘freedom of life and expressions’ in man-made laws that are contrary to the standard of God principles. Humankind does not need man-made laws to be free and whole because true freedom naturally comes from God. Laws made by God fearing nations are supposed to protect God’s natural standard of living and not to alter it. This is why it is always advisable when a truly Christian nation wants to make new laws, they should use the Bible as a standard to check the laws and if the new law goes contrary to the standard of the scripture such law cannot stand. Because the natural principle of God laws cannot give way to man’s made laws. Laws made by men can only stand the test of time when it conforms to the ultimate law of God.

The world needs to know that the life we are living is not ours, God created us for His glory and not for us to defile our God given nature by indulging in acts that are contrary to His original pattern of creation. It seems most of us are trying to reshape and rebuild the world to suit our own demonic view point. The way the world establishment is promoting and forcing the homosexual and transgender issue “down our throats” calls for concern to any right thinker.

Sexuality, as created by God, was supposed to be between the male and the female genders and not of the same gender. There is nothing normal about a man having affection for his fellow man and a woman having affection for her fellow woman. It is not right and anybody that is making it seems right, needs a self-examination, including if that person is a so called ‘pastors or a bishop’. No true Child of God will endorse homosexuality as normal. As Christians, our duty is to educate the world on God’s standard and help transform the gays and lesbians to the natural way God originally created them.

It is so wrong for any church to publicly endorse and encourage these acts. I heard in some country, weddings of the same sex are conducted in holy premises and the supposed weddings are said to be officiated by a priest. This is so absurd. You should not because you want to gain favour from the world compromise your integrity. An honourable man cannot soil his integrity for anything. He will prefer to die for what he believes than to live for what he doesn’t believe in. Most of us are afraid to speak and stand for the truth because of fear: the fear of death, prison dungeon, persecution and rejection.

The world establishment will always be against the Church. Remember we are a representative of an opposite Kingdom, the Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of darkness will always wage war against us. Christ Jesus planted the Church in the world as a Light. We don’t compromise with darkness – we fix the errors in the world and correct the mistakes. Homosexuality and transgenderism are an act of error that needs to be fixed by the Church and not for the church to accept it as normal. Some we say, “What about accepting and accommodating other people views”. The Church doesn’t accommodate or accept what is against God’s standard. We are like a solid rock in the ocean. When the tides and water current hit and bypass us, we ought to still stand strong without losing our position. The Church doesn’t float with the world. We stand as a rock to position the world to accept the principles of God.

The entire world is aware that thousands of Homosexuals and even transgender are coming to the Ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua to get their deliverance. We bless God that many of them are now seeing the Light in the SCOAN and they are embracing it. Despite how the world establishments are making a political and religious agenda out of the issue, thank God many of them now know that the world cannot give them their true natural freedom.

Prophet T.B. Joshua

The world needs to understand that there is a spiritual force behind homosexuality and transvestite behaviour. That is why we continue to call on those promoting homosexuality and other sexualities that are out of the natural norms to take a bold step of faith and visit the SCOAN for their total deliverance. This is not about pride or shame, but for your own good and spiritual well-being. Do not be deceived by the false teachings and some formulated ideologies that homosexuality is normal; they are from the pit of hell to cage you in bondage. God never created anyone to be sexually abnormal. I urge you to visit the SCOAN official YouTube page and see the testimonies of many homosexual victims that were once in your position but were later transformed by God to live a normal better life.

For those gay that are from countries where such acts are legalised, you should not be quick to rejoice. Know that the world establishment cannot protect you. They are only using you to promote their political agenda. They don’t actually like your person. It is only the true Church of God that like and care about you because that is where you will get the true freedom that you really need. GET A RETHINK! The law can’t save you.  You don’t need man-made laws to be free. Freedom is natural and it only comes from God. Run to the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua and get your freedom. It is not a coincidence that there is a God given Ministry like the SCOAN at these present ages. Where one can get is freedom immediately after a touch from God. It is not by chance. God is aware of your situation that is why He raised a Prophet like T.B. Joshua and other great ministers of the gospel to attend to your need. I PRAY THAT THE LOVE OF CHRIST SHALL CONTINUE TO FLOURISH IN THE EARTH. AMEN!

 

The Paraguay Crusade with TB Joshua Day-2


Like the day one of the crusades, the atmosphere was filled with high expectation as people from all works of lives: visitors from neighbouring country, government officials, security personnel and citizens of Paraguay trooped to the Estadio Defensores Del Chaco in the capital, Asuncion, to experience the mighty moves of God through Prophet T.B Joshua in the day two of the historic crusade. Even the bad wealthier could not discourage the people that came to witness the tough of God.

There were countless of testimonies from many that received their healings and deliverance in the day one of the crusades. In which, the deaf received their hearing, the lame walked, the demon-possessed received their freedom, the dejected received God’s love, the broken received restoration and countless testimonies filled the atmosphere in the glory of God’s name.

Among those that were opportune to testify was a 13 year old Adriana Gimenez, whose life was rapidly becoming more agonising as she was afflicted with scoliosis of the spine that was getting worse by the day. The doctors had told her that a cure was medically impossible, restricting her to using a very cumbersome body brace which she used 24 hours a day. Whether she used the body brace or not, Adriana was in constant pain. She couldn’t even turn her neck without feeling pain pulsating down her spine. Adriana was not able to sleep peacefully; constantly disturbed by the body brace she had to wear, even at night. In a state of desperate faith, Adriana came to the Paraguay Crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua and received her healing in Jesus’ name. Now, she is liberated from pain, disease and agony. Her advice was simple: Trust in Jesus Christ with all your heart and He will set you free.

Another testifier was Susana Gonzales from Argentina who had a lot of back pain due to an accident which caused a severe cervical problem which had been getting worse every year for the duration of twenty years. It reached a point where she couldn’t walk without assistance. She received a lot of treatment but none was able to relieve the intense pain and discomfort she went through on a daily basis. The doctors gave her a lumbar corset and body brace but they were only able to bring a temporary relief.

When Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her at the Prayer Line of the Paraguay Crusade, Day 1, she felt excited and her faith rose. She believed in her heart that Jesus Christ would heal her through him. When he touched her, the evil spirit behind her sickness manifested and immediately, she felt light and strong. She stood up and walked unaided for the first time in many years. Something spoke to her hear that “You are healed”. She can now climb stairs and walk freely without pain or discomfort. She happily threw away her lumbar corset and body brace, she no longer needs them!

Afterward, Miriam Vasquez who had a terrible accident which broke many tendons in her body that renders her unable to walk at all came to testify. She said she had to use a wheelchair to move around because she couldn’t do her daily chores or go to work or even go to the toilet without assistance. By faith, Miriam came to the Paraguay Crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua and was at the Prayer Line. Immediately she felt peace in her heart when Prophet T.B. Joshua touched her. She received inner strength and stood up and began to walk by herself. She joyfully demonstrated with that she can now walk freely! She advised all to trust in God because He is not a liar. Everything is possible for the one who believes.

When Prophet T.B Joshua came to the podium, he gave a message titled: The integrity of the bible part 2, which is a continuation of the day one message. After the messages, the man of God went straight to the prayer line to minister healings and deliverance to the sick and afflicted. As the man of God was ministering under the power and influence of the Holy Ghost, Cancer, pain, arthritis and broken bones were no match for the powerful name of Jesus Christ.  It was a miracle galore as afflictions were being taken away. Many in wheel chaired and those using crutches were moving freely. While many others using lumbar corset and body brace were seen removing the brace as they joyously give thanks to God after a touched from Prophet T.B Joshua.

At the close of the 2-day program, Prophet T.B Joshua was again presented with another medal of honour by government officials. Before the Prophet left the stadium, he told the peoples that it will soon rain because the rain was supposed to fall but the rain, which is a servant of God, has been waiting for the crusade to come to a close. Truly as the Prophet was about leaving, there was a heavy downpour of rain.

The Paraguay Crusade With TB Joshua Day-1


With high expectations for the move of God, the stadium auditorium was filled to capacity, as Paraguayan from all walks of life, government officials, as well as religious leaders and visitors from other South America nations, trooped to the Estadio Defensores Del Chaco in the capital, Asuncion, to receive God’s touch through Prophet T.B Joshua. As the man of God ministers healing and delivering to the sick and the weak, in Jesus‘ name, not less than a hundred wheel chaired people were healed of various ailments as they were seen leaving the magnificent stadium with their wheelchairs raised while they walked unaided for the first time in many years.

A man who came on crutches due to a broken leg received a touch from the Prophet, in the name of Jesus, and instantly began to walk; another person, a woman, who arrived with her left leg strapped in a full leg brace walked to the glory of God as soon as the man of God touched the point of her trouble in Jesus‘ name; a young girl in body brace due to scoliosis that deteriorated backbone jumped to the glory of God the instant she received her healing. A man with several braces all over his body joints – from the ankles to elbows – cried out for help as he counted his many ailments. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the man and instantly he wanted all the braces removed and indeed they were all removed right away. The man did not only walk but ran his best to testify his healing is complete in the name of Jesus-Christ.

A woman in lumbar corset received her healing, instantly walked, and began to jump as she shed tears of joy to glorify God’s name.

An Argentine woman and her husband cried to the man of God saying she needed a miracle due to the severe and hopeless state of her broken leg that rendered her unable to walk without human support. The man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the woman she walked freely to the glory of the Lord.

Another woman suffering from obesity received the touch of God and began to vomit poisonous substances. Right after that, the woman looked refreshed and testified to the goodness of the Lord’s name, as she walked in her testimony.

The two-day crusade which will round off on Saturday (today) started at about 6 pm local time on Friday and saw many streets deserted, albeit with massive pockets of traffic on major roads leading to the stadium.

According to some resident of the city of Asuncion who pleaded anonymity, over 2 million people graced the occasion and such miracles galore have never been witnessed before in Paraguay. This was corroborated by one Mr Mario Martinez, a Mexican who came all the way from Mexico City to attend the crusade.

The high point of the crusade was the official presentation of the Order of Merit, the Paraguay’s Highest National Honour to Prophet T.B Joshua by the Paraguayan Parliament. This was in recognition of his leadership and humanitarian works. He was also presented with an honour of privilege by the Board and Members of the Asuncion Municipality declared Prophet T.B. Joshua as an Illustrious Visitor, sealing this off with the Presentation of Honour of Illustrious Visitor and the Key of The City of Asuncion to him. – An indication that the city has been handed over to God for His blessing through Prophet T.B Joshua.

PART TWO: Disunity Among Great Men


“Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” – 1 Corinthians 1: 10

Apostle Paul is one of the greatest First-century leaders of the Church that every genuine minister of the gospel in this 21st century needs to learn from. He was a unifier and bridge builder among brethren of the Church during his ministry. There was a time when there were divisions among members of the early Church. Some said they were for Apollos, while some said they were for Paul, some others said they were for Cephas and the rest said they were for Christ. When Paul a great man of wisdom heard about this, he quickly distances himself from it. He told the brethren that he was not the Christ that was crucified for them neither was the body of Christ divided.

 “For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, lest anyone should say that I had baptized in my own name. Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides, I do not know whether I baptized any other. For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.” – 1 Corinthians 1: 11-17

Paul tried not to associate with those that were sowing seeds of disunity among the Churches neither was it ever recorded that he castigated other men of God. Paul was a man of vision whose focus was the spreading of the gospel around the nations of the earth. As great ministers of the gospel, our mission in the pulpit or Bible classes is to preach about Christ and the salvation he brought to mankind not preaching and naming other ministers of the gospel we think are false thereby, causing division in the household of God and thus, exposing the Church to publicly ridicule by unbelievers. It is time for all of us to change our ways.

Let us forget the pain of the past. The accusations, name calling and suspicion in the body of Christ benefit no one. Every minister of the gospel both home and abroad needs to come together and put the devil to shame. The kingdom of darkness does not want to see us together. I tell you the day our different Church head denominations would come together and pray with one voice in agreement, However huge the mountain maybe whether from the North, South, East and West or from the Sea, the Air, the Land and in any dark realm shall be made low.

Just imagine if great men of God like our daddy Enoch Adeboye, T.B. Joshua, Christ Oyakhilome, David Oyedepo, William Kumuyi, Lazarus Muoka, D.K. Olukoya and many other come together and pray to God in one voice. Boko Haram in Nigeria will be a thing of the past. The earth will become uncomfortable to the kingdom of darkness. All the principalities and dark powers holding the progress of the nation will be broken. The devil and his agent know all this that is why they don’t want to see us all together. Satan wants us to remain fragmented.

When Peter was arrested by King Herod the Bible said that the Church come together and prayed constantly to God for his freedom. The united prayers by the Church make God to personally send an Angel to free the Apostle in the prison cell. That’s the power of a united prayer; it provokes God to act quickly.

“Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant[a] prayer was offered to God for him by the church. And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison. Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands. Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.” – Acts 12:5-10

Whether we like it or not we need each other strength to move the Church forward irrespective of how great we think we are in our calling. “We need to understand that everyone has an ability that no one else has and is indispensable in the world”. Each human being is a solution to a certain problem that needs to be solved, that’s why we should be very careful not to look down or speak ill of others…READ MORE

 

The disturbing trend of Consistent Fake News


tb joshua fake news

Fake News Logo

What a world of propaganda and deceitful media, where things seem to be fallen apart and where half truth mixed with lies has taken over the media conglomerate? The adage “The pen is mightier than the sword” has been used to convey truth even in the face of deceitful might and tyranny. But it seems this adage is no longer the watchword of modern journalism due to the lies and deceit now spread by them. Is there still news worth believing? Where are those journalists and news media that still keep to the ethics of their profession?

Some journalists now sell their pens to the highest bidder, thereby overlooking the ethics of their profession. They are willing to poison the will of truth, spread lies across the social media for the sake of money and to those they hold allegiance to.

In recent times, many public figures have come out to speak about the alarming global rate of fake news and warned about the detrimental effects it has on the society. Consequently, this seemingly unpleasant global scenario has uncontrollably eaten deep into the fabrics of modern Journalism. The truth is that the big-shots in the media industries are those that are really involved in this sheer condemning and reprimanding act, thus disregarding the intended consequences on the entire populace.

Who are those benefiting from this fake news? What can be done by the world governing body and the officials of social media like Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Google and others in regulating and minimising the spread of fake news? Those of good conscience have to take adequate measure to arrest and sanitise this ugly phenomenon before it gets out of hand; they have to save and restore the lost glory of the media and help their reputation.

The bad eggs in the media profession have allowed their personal interests to ruin the profession that supposed to be the pinnacle of truth and enlightenment. The truth is that many are now in doubt of a number of news published by the media; people are now sceptical of what comes out of these world media conglomerate…READ MORE

 

How T.B. Joshua prophesied victory for Emmanuel Macron in French Election


tb joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

On Sunday 7th May 2017, Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua predicted victory in the French election for Emmanuel Macron merely hours before results were officially announced declaring him the winner.

Speaking to congregants at The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a message equally broadcast live on the popular Christian channel Emmanuel TV, Joshua declared Macron’s victory was connected to his considerate stance on immigrants and refugees.

“It is prayer that will put him there, not anything – because of his heart for refugees and immigrants,” Joshua declared, adding that Jesus Christ too was once a refugee.

“We are praying for him and our prayer will answer,” he authoritatively declared. “I am not a politician but I pray every day for Emmanuel Macron because of what he believes,” the cleric proceeded.

Joshua appealed that most refugees were fleeing war-torn countries and should not be looked down upon because of some who perpetrate evil under such guise.

“We know there are some bad people among the refugees – but we cannot say because there are some bad people that we reject all of them,” he counselled.

The cleric further emphasised that his statements bore no political sentiment as “we are not playing politics in the Church”.

Several hours later, news broke that after an extraordinary election campaign full of twists and turns, Emmanuel Macron won a dramatic victory over his opponent Marine Le Pen to become the youngest ever French President.

Initial estimates have put Macron winning by 65% of the votes, an astonishing margin given his relatively recent burst onto the French political scene.

The video of Joshua’s prediction was hurriedly uploaded to popular video sharing site YouTube at the conclusion of the church service.

The cleric additionally told congregants that he had just arrived back from Israel where he met the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi David Lau, as well as the Israeli Minister of Tourism, Mr Yariv Levin, further fuelling speculation of an imminent relocation.
