A PROPHET IN OUR MIDST


Happy 57th Birthday, Tb Joshua, SCOANWhat a chosen generation we are and what a glorious God we serve. By whom the bountifulness of His Mercy and Grace has made us a witness to the reign of His humble Servant, Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua. Through whom He has continued to demonstrate the evidence of His Love, Grace, Power and Sovereignty overall.

Blessed be the Name of Our Lord, who has chosen us – this generation – the offspring of Abraham to witness this uncommon time.

What a glorious era we live in. The period when the Prophet reigns and dwells amongst us.

He was chosen not of man, but by God to stand in the gap for this faithless generation. Favoured with a direct channel to God and bestow with the Graced to see deep into His plans and bring it to our hearing.

What an uncommon phenomenon of God’s power! An era when the power of God is so visible amongst men. The unbelievers are in awe and even the sceptics are saying, this must be the hand of God. For they could witness the blind, sees, the demon possesses, delivered, the sick, heal and the broken-hearted, restored.

What can be said of His Mother…? Blessed be the womb that incubates him and the breast in whose milk his infancy was nourished. Through her, a Prophet came into this world. That alone is a precious destiny…….READ MORE

God’s Intervention in the Affairs of Men


scoan, tb JoshuaIn the Old Testament, we read that Prophet Jeremiah was called to prophetic ministry by God. He was called to give a prophecy of Jerusalem’s destruction that would occur by invaders from the north. This was because Israel had been unfaithful to the laws of the covenant and had forsaken God by worshipping false gods. Jeremiah condemned people burning their children as offerings to idols. In his prophecies, Jeremiah was guided by God to proclaim that the nation of Judah would be faced with famine, plundered and taken captive by foreigners who would exile them to a foreign land, etc. Like today, Jeremiah’s ministry prompted plots against him. Whilst Jeremiah was prophesying the coming destruction, several other prophets were prophesying peace. His prophecies came to fulfilment but the prophet suffered great persecutions.

For over 12 years prophet TB Joshua of Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has been warning about the entire world coming economic downturn to the extent that individuals may be richer than a whole nation. The fulfilment of that prophecy may have just started.  We don’t know the proportion of the population that have listened to him, or that had listened and are taking appropriate steps to protect themselves and asset. What we do know is that what the prophet has been saying repeatedly has come to reality. The global coronavirus pandemic is the vehicle conveying the herald of the coming “economic pandemic”. There are a few lessons to learn but we first need to appreciate God for giving us a prophet at this time that can speak correctly to individuals, to groups of people, to nations or the entire world. I have always found Prophet TB Joshua a man that has separated himself from frivolous activities that are just self-entertaining but devoting himself to total service to God and humanity.

At this stage a few points must be made about this Coronavirus, also tagged COVID-19, that has covered the entire globe, has ruined economies, shutdown Church cathedrals living only empty pews, killing across races and ages. Prophet TB Joshua has said a lot on this COVID-19 and has been praying. The virus has moved to the community transmission level whereby it can get to everyone easily. It has defied any medication, only trials and errors treatment, and so on. It would take a long while getting a vaccine and hence the public should be ready to accommodate this virus for a while.

The second point to know is the coincidence with the prophecy of “A Year of Humility”, also prophesied by Prophet TB Joshua. The prophecy we recall came with conditions that are, “Turning to God in Repentance”. If the world had heeded the prophet and repented maybe by March 27, 2020, the rains would have washed the virus away. Everyone can listen to the prophecy over and again. It was conditional on our needed “changed attitude to the Living God”. Hence for the prophecy of humility to take its effect on a journey from Egypt to the Promised Land meant for about only 40 days may take 40 years, unless this generation is ready for God.

Our prayer points are many. We want God to keep talking to us and we don’t want our cathedrals filled with only empty pews. This generation can best be described as “Eye-service-Generation”, nearly everyone in it. Most of the popular pastors and church leaders are busy giving motivational speeches and entertaining the crowds like the days of Jeremiah. The humility regime, prophesied by TB Joshua, is going to start in the Church and amongst the Christians, in a long process. The world is already on its platform, un-repented, whilst the church is in disarray and disunity. Hence we pray for the move of the Holy Spirit for God’s quick intervention in the affairs of men.

PROPHET TB JOSHUA’S MESSAGE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!


2020 Prophecy, President Trump, EU, USA, Coronavirus, SCOAN, TB Joshua, Emmanuel.TV, This is an official message from The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) regarding US President Donald Trump’s announcement of a travel ban on visitors from European countries to America over the coronavirus outbreak.

On 28th December 2019, TB Joshua released his prophetic message for 2020 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6aJL…). He said, “This year will be a year of humility. This year, the Lord will humble us with our challenges. Challenges can be affliction, disease, sickness etc. To humble us with these is for those things to destroy us or expose us. Let us move closer to God.”

The same message said regarding the world economy: “Agriculture will help the economy because the economy will have a backlash….”

Specifically, concerning America, he said: “America should invest more in agriculture because their economy will be affected. The economy they see today will be affected, so they should invest in agriculture and encourage the farmers.”

The prophecy was given in parables, with the wisdom of God. What is affecting the economy today? COVID-19 (coronavirus).

The same message said, “Many sicknesses and diseases that leaders have been treating privately will surface this year.”

According to the US National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, China had this issue for several months and had been treating it silently. He said, “Unfortunately, rather than using best practices, this outbreak in Wuhan was covered up…. This probably cost the world community two months to respond.” Today, it has surfaced – as TB Joshua predicted.

The prophecy continued, “They will become bedridden and many will not make it.” Indeed, this is exactly what is happening.

The same prophecy said, “Pray for unity and understanding among the British Royal Family – because of what I am seeing.” Days later, Prince Harry announced he was stepping down from his duties in the Royal Family.

The same man – TB Joshua – is hereby telling President Donald Trump: “This travel ban on flights from Europe will cause a backlash. It will affect the American economy the more and also the world economy. It will also affect the forthcoming election in America – in one way or another. The travel ban is not the best way to stop the spread of coronavirus. The initial measures America put in place are the best way – they just need to be reinforced. Coronavirus is fear and fear lingers in the air. Fear does not need to fly to America or any other country on a plane before being contracted. In conclusion, we are on our knees praying. The noise of coronavirus will be silenced before the end of this month – March 2020.”

Prophet TB Joshua’s Year of Fear to End, March 2020


tb joshua, scoan, emmauel.tv
Prophet TB Joshua

In the United States of America, USA, the year 1933 was called “The Year of Fear” because of the then anticipatory rise in crimes. Government prohibition had led to a precipitous rise in crime, and some of the nation’s most infamous criminals engineered a string of mayhem and lawlessness such as America had never seen. When prohibition was repealed that year, these criminals looked elsewhere for quick sources of easy cash. They set their sights on kidnapping and government agents were given authority to chase kidnappers across state lines. The fear became distributed evenly between criminals and government agents. When Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, declared the year 2019 as “The Year of Fear”, the mind of some historians went to the USA of 1933 expecting a significant rise in all classes of crime, diseases, fire outbreaks, plane crashes, and other disasters. The prophet made it clear on a live service that the FEAR would continue till 27 March 2020 and when his prophecy of a following “Year of Humility” would follow.

His prophecy of the year of fear has been confirmed as we can all observe. The coronavirus or Lasa fever episodes are just the most recent sources of fear. In line with this is the prophet’s prophecy of rain and many reported cases of rain were heard same yesterday, March 1, 2020. The prophesized rain was for a blessing and to signal possibly the beginning of the end of the fear. The prophet spent a great time encouraging his viewers not to fear as Christians. It is the Lord’s doing and it makes our heart glad. Prophet TB Joshua together with his Emmanuel.tv broadcasting station is now becoming a global authority for the world to pay significant attention. It may not look scientific, or logical, but the information therein is profitable for living a successful and correct life.

In the Bible prophets of old were known for describing periods and years with tagged names. For example, year of rest Levi 25:5, Jubilee Levi 25:13, release Deut 25:9, tithing Deut 27:12, recompenses Isaiah 34:8, redemption Isaiah 63:4, visitation Jere 11:23, drought Jere 17:8 liberty Ezek 46:17, or the year of the Lord Like 4:19. Hence we are probably passing through “The Years of Prophet TB Joshua”, whether we know it or not. They are going to be called years of revival, years of persecution, or years of controversy and religion competition, depending on who you are. For me, Prophet TB Joshua has brought the Apostolic age of evangelism, redemption and renewal of the Christian faith across the globe. Again this is God’s doing and we are very glad.

Assuming we all successfully end the year of fear this March, according to the prophet, then what will the year of Humility bring? We either humble ourselves or the Lord will humble us by Himself. All the powers in heaves and on the earth are in His hand, hence we can’t possibly negotiate our way out.  Therefore according to Acts 20:19, our option is to “serve the Lord with all humility of mind along with many tears and temptations”. We may expect more persecution of the Church and the persecution of Christian leaders that are effective. In all that we ought to be like 1 Peter 5:5 by saying, “Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble”. The prophet may need to teach us more on the subject of “Year of Humility”, as we enter it. Meanwhile, the prophesied year of Fear is ending. Thanks for this knowledge, but those who lack this knowledge would perish.

Little Girl Has Shocking Vision of Jesus In TB Joshua’s Church


tb joshua, scoan, jesus is coming
TB Joshua Ministries (February-06-2020) “JESUS IS COMING SOON .

The video of a 12-year-old girl who had a ‘vision’ of Jesus Christ during a midweek service at TB Joshua’s popular church in Lagos has gone viral.

During a service known as the ‘Living Water Service’ at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in which congregants come forward to receive water they believe to be anointed, immediately after receiving her water, a young girl suddenly cried out and gesticulated wildly.

“There is a Man there; He is tall! He is wearing a white garment,” exclaims the girl who later identified herself as Gift from Anambra State. 

According to her, He said, “Repent; I am coming soon. Bring people to My church; bring more souls.”

Gift then narrated how she witnessed angels and 24 elders “bowing down and singing, ‘Holy, Holy is the Lamb’.”

Throughout this period, Gift’s eyes remained closed as she vividly expressed that “His face is shining” and “the light is too bright”.

Suddenly, the young girl crumpled to the floor and appeared to ‘awaken’ from the trance. Bemused at the attention surrounding her, Gift began crying as she recounted again what she had just witnessed.

“On His head was a big crown and He was sitting on a throne,” she recounted, adding that she saw smoke surrounding the Heavenly scene she witnessed.

The young girl was shocked that no-one else saw what she had seen so vividly.

“People are going on the wrong track; we should bring them back to the Church,” she emotionally pleaded, adding that she needed guidance from Pastor TB Joshua on why she would be the recipient of such a stunning revelation.

“There is no excuse for being surprised by the uncertainty of coming events,” Joshua stated on YouTube when posting the viral clip.

“The uncertainty of the hour of Christ’s return calls for vigilance and watchfulness. Let us not wait for another sign from Heaven to convince us of the paramount importance of making the most out of life today because only today is our own, tomorrow is not.”

The clip has been watched over 400,000 times since being published to YouTube and Facebook yesterday.

This is not the first time for someone to have had such a revelation as several months ago, a lady – who said she was a sceptic – also stated she had a vision of Jesus during a similar service at Joshua’s church.

Coronavirus: TB Joshua Praying for China and the World Healing


tb joshua, mountian, 2020 prayer
Prophet TB Joshua Praying at Mountain Top

Early last year, TB Joshua gave a world Prophecy at the prayer mountain that the year we are entering will be a ‘fearful year’ and it was indeed very fearful. Which confirmed the Prophet Prophecy. However, he reiterated the same Prophecy early this year when he was releasing the Prophecy for 2020. The Prophet told us that it is not over yet and that by God’s time table, last year, 2019 will end till March 2020. And this again we can confirm from the event so far, since the beginning of 2020 that there is fear up till now around the world, especially, with the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

We need to know that this killer Coronavirus that is causing fear around the world and currently taking lives and putting many on the sick bed started in 2019. But there was less publicity than on its rampage.

Since the outbreak of this killer virus, there have been rumours going around about the source of the virus. Some are even insinuating that it might be a biological weapon targeted at those affected nations, comparing it with the past case of the Ebola Virus.

Regardless of the truth or falsehood behind this rumours, one thing we must know is that the human race is fighting one enemy, and that enemy is the devil. The devil is behind the killing and destruction that his taking place around the world.

Just like what the Prophet said to the world about the Ebola Virus, the Coronavirus killer diseases and other of its likes are all from the pit of hell – manufactured by Satan to inflict pains, death and hardship on the human race. Satan is the enemies of God’s people. Satan is the one causing hate and spreading mistrust amongst the human race and he is behind this present epidemic called Coronavirus.

It is high time we understand that our fellow humans are not our true enemies. Humans in is normal self cannot kill or cause harm to their fellow neighbours. Those that are being used to spread evil and causing division around the world are under invisible forces that can’t be seen by the human visible eyes.

It is easy for the world to condemn fellow human because we have been made to see ourselves as each other enemies. Unknowingly to us that the unfortunate victim and the propagator of the act are both victims who need help and God’s mercy. But, Who in the world will accept this today? We are quick to through stone at others for their misdeed forgetting that, we too are in need of God’s mercy.

As TB Joshua will rightly say, “If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle.” Let us channel our energy to the right enemies, instead of targeting each other. We all are both victims of that one true enemy. The devil is the true enemies, not your fellow human. Once we start accepting this hard truth the better for the world.

The world needs to come together at this critical time to help China and other affected nations. We need to preach the message of the wound of one is the wound of all. Whatever is going on in China now should be a thing of concern to the entire human race. Christ called us to be our brother’s keepers. Let us continue to show love to them that are around us. Help each other in the little way we can.

Just as it is the wise thing for us as leaders and good citizens of the world to protect our respective countries and territories from this ravaging killer virus, we should also be very careful with our words and actions. We should not fall into the temptation of shutting our doors against our neighbours, because of fear. Remember that the devil is the father of fear.

Our words and actions should bring hope to today victims, not segregation and hate. Let us look for how we can help each other and heal our world. The world belongs to us all, God has given us this world. It’s just the devil that is wrestling it from us.

Yesterday was Ebola virus in some part of Africa, today is Coronavirus in some part of China and other nations. Who knows, it can be yours tomorrow. We all should come together and see how we can help to bring this spread to a stop.

Those close to the government of China and other affected nations should take it as a personal duty to inform them about the Prophet and the SCOAN Anointed water, that has been affected by God to break the world free from every bondage and sickness.

They have to make an official request before the Prophet can release the Anointed water to the affected nations. This is not an individual thing. Things like this need genuine government request and enforcement. Every one of us has a role to play. Our God is a God of orderliness. He leaves men to their own will and discretion. He does not force Himself on us.

Surely, the Prophet is praying fervently for the affected nations and the world healing. The Prophet is indeed concerned about the happenings around nations of the world. His prayer is to see a world that will be free from the stronghold of darkness.

May God deliver us from the enemy stronghold… Amen!

Faith Working Through Love by Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN


tb joshua, scoanThe Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Senior Prophet TB Joshua, in his opening teaching at the Living Water Service yesterday (February 3, 2020), gave a profound exposition on how “our faith works through our love”. He gave the teaching from Galatians 5:6. We would have most probably read from this part of the Bible many times hitherto but what Prophet TB Joshua is simply saying is this; “For our faith to work, we need to walk in love toward God and other people. If our faith hasn’t been working lately, the reason is probably that we haven’t walked in love well enough”.

Many times we wonder where this prophet draws his inspirations from. They are so precise, simple and yet very deep and sufficient for our deliverance and the salvation of our souls. We need to get it very clear that in Christ Jesus neither circumcised nor uncircumcised has any value. It is not how long we can fast, it is not because we would put in some big efforts at all. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Unfortunately, religion has stolen the gospel from the general public and presenting them with work and personal efforts; of course, all of which are good but they are not the first things.

Faith is having complete trust or confidence in God whereas love is an intense desire to meet the needs of others without the slightest expectation of receiving anything in return. Ordinarily, the two requirements, faith and love, seem to be working differently but Prophet TB Joshua has put them together for our success. It is heart gladden knowing that our faith works through our love. Hence we are taught that our faith works through God’s love for us; not our love for Him. When we understand how much God loves us, the width, length, depth, and height we will be full with all the fullness of Him. God will then be able to do more than we can ask for or think according to the power that works in us.

We thank God for the gift of prophet TB Joshua at this particular time in history. His love for humanity is deep-rooted. Many of us who know him since the early 1990s will testify that he is a consistent generous giver in love, expecting no repayment. Similarly, those coming across him daily today have free opportunities to be healed, prayed for and directed by revelation in prophecy. This is Jesus’ command to all of us to love God and to also love our neighbours. Giving is the actual seed sowing to produce a hundred folds as re-echoed by the prophet in the SCOAN.

冠状病毒与SCOAN涂油水的作用


注:这是原文的译文,信息可能不如原文准确。这是原文。

作为世界上的好公民,我们要提请世界卫生组织(世卫组织)、联合国和那些受到这种肆虐的冠状病毒影响的国家,特别是中华人民共和国,在那里这种致命的病毒夺去了更多的生命,有很多人受影响去寻求上帝的面来解决问题。

我们应该永远知道上帝是宇宙的主人。他没有什么不可能解决的。而不是让无辜的人失去生命。这些受影响国家的政府应该在联合国和世界卫生组织的合作下,迅速谦卑地来到SCOAN取受膏水

是时候让世界开始拥抱上帝的东西了。魔鬼以他精明的方式继续操纵人类的方式去违背上帝的方式。上帝对我们的福祉如此感兴趣,甚至在我们的灵魂受到攻击之前,他就已经为我们的自由创造了一条道路。

受膏的水已经被证明是上帝治疗各种疾病和疾病的有效工具。

我们不应该很快忘记,在一些西非国家埃博拉病毒爆发期间,上帝用受膏的水作为媒介发挥的作用。

我们都知道上帝是如何用受膏的水来阻止致命的埃博拉病毒在塞拉利昂的传播的,尽管强大的国际力量由于他们的不信仰而强烈反对。

上帝有时会允许我们在别人身上发生一些事情,让他能够证明自己。我认为上帝希望利用现在的形势,给亚洲,特别是中国带来复兴。现在是时候让中国政府和人民知道,如果他们能够谦卑自己,在正确的地方寻求上帝的帮助,天地之神已经为他们的现状找到了答案。

我们决不会为了任何利益而宣传受膏水。如你们所知,它是上帝的媒介,自由地接受和给予。我们只不过是发自内心的真诚呼唤,因为我们担心不断传播的新闻,以及致命的冠状病毒造成的不必要的生命损失。

中国政府和其他有关国家应该向塞拉利昂政府学习。

正如智慧的先知所说:“当你没有绳子时,是时候抓住信心了。”

如果需要很长时间才能得到医学治疗来遏制这种致命病毒的传播,那么是时候抓住信仰治疗了。记住,只有活着的人才能找到治愈的方法。

让我们首先拯救生命,就像我们正在研究如何找到阻止病毒的医学解决方案一样。难道你不知道上帝已经有了解决办法吗?医学源于自然,上帝是自然的主人。有上帝,一切皆有可能。

奇迹的时代还没有结束,我们的上帝昨天、今天和永远都是一样的。

愿主的恩典常在我们众人身上…阿门!

The Coronavirus and the Efficacy of the SCOAN Anointed Water


As good citizens of the world, we want to draw the attention of the World Health Organisation (WHO), the United Nations, and those nations that have been affected by this ravaging Coronavirus, especially, to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) where this killer virus has taken more lives, with much persons affected to seek the face of God for solution.

We should always know that God is the owner of the Universe. There is nothing impossible for Him to solve. Instead, of allowing innocent people to lose their lives. The government of these affected nations should quickly in humility come to The SCOAN and order for the anointed water, with collaborations from the United Nations and the WHO to be administered to the affected nations and persons.

It is time for the world to start embracing the things of God. The devil in his canny ways has continued to manipulate the ways of Mankind to go against the ways of God. God is so interested in our well being that even before the enemies of our soul strict, He has already created an avenue for our freedom.

The Anointed water has been proven beyond every reasonable doubt to be an effective instrument of God in curing all manners of infirmities and sickness.

We should not be quick to forget the role God used the Anointed Water to play as a medium during the outbreak of the Ebola Virus in some west Africa countries.

We all know how God used the anointed water to stop the spread of the deadly Ebola virus in the nation of Sierra Leone, this was despite the strong opposition from powerful international forces, due to their unbelief.

God sometimes allows some setting things to happens to us in other for Him to be able to prove Himself. I think God wants to use this present situation to bring a revival to Asian and especially, the nation of China. It is time the government and the people of China know that the God of Heaven and Earth has the answered to their present situation if they can humble themselves and seek for His help in the right place.

We are not in any way trying to advertise the Anointed water for any benefit. As you all know, it is a medium of God, freely received and freely given. We are simply making a genuine call from our heart because of our concern about the news going around on the spread and the unnecessary loss of life as a result of the killer Coronavirus.

The Chines government and other affected nations should take a lesson from the government of Sierra Leone.

As the wise Prophet will say, “When you run out of rope, it is time to grab onto Faith.”

If it is taking much time to get the medical cure to contain the spread of this killer virus, it is time to grab onto faith healing. Remember that it is only the living that can look for a cure.

Let’s save life first just as we are working on the research to get a medical solution to stop the Virus. Don’t you know God has the Medical solution already? Medicine is from nature and God is the owner of nature. With God everything is possible.

The age of miracle is not yet over, our God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

MAY THE GRACE OF THE GOOD LORD ABIDE IN US ALL…AMEN!

PROPHETIC MESSAGE FOR SOUTH SUDAN – PROPHET TB JOSHUA


tb joshua, scoan, emmanuel.tv
Prophet T.B. Joshua

Thank you very much for welcoming me. He who honours a prophet because he is a prophet receives the reward of a prophet. Thank you for honouring me. I am here to deliver God’s message. I pray that God gives all the political stakeholders in this country discretion that will guard their hearts to obey this message, in Jesus’ name.

As a prophet, I need to be specific – that is, I should not say what God has not said. Yes, this is the voice of God. Time has come. Seven times, I have been invited to this country – but each time I received an invitation, I would ask God and the Lord would say, ‘No’. But this time, the Lord said, ‘Yes!’.

Time has come for us to put our differences behind us. Who can fight with the Lord? Time has come for us to put our differences behind us in this youngest nation in the world.

If I am a prophet, this will not go without fulfilment. Take your pen and write. I am here to prophesy to the nation. I am not coming here to preach or to teach. If I am a prophet, this will not go without fulfilment. Time has come. The issue of this nation is spiritual. We need to tackle it spiritually.

Time has come – I repeat – for us to put our differences behind us. Our leaders, we should overcome our divisions and agree to work together – for the good of this country.

Peace has no price. To show peace has no price, when I was preparing to come to South Sudan, my operator could not find an international insurance company to cover our trip to South Sudan – because of the situation of the nation. The operator recommended that the plane should be parked in Ethiopia or Kenya. I said why? They said because of the situation of the nation.

And this is a country endowed with enormous natural resources. How many investors or tourists would want to go through this?

We cannot do it alone. As I travelled the world, I have discovered that people from South Sudan are everywhere all over the world. There is no country in this world where you will not find South Sudanese. They are intelligent, hard-working, ambitious people. Our leaders should overcome their divisions and allow them to come back to develop their fatherland.

We should overcome our divisions. You cannot stand in the way of the Lord. He owns man’s heart and He can instruct man at any time. Don’t look at my appearance. Don’t look at the clothes I put on; I had to wear something. Look beyond this appearance. Beyond this appearance is the man talking. Next month, we talk of December and then the New Year. This country is going to enter a New Year, a new beginning – whether you like it or not, whether I like it or not.

Your agreement does not matter to what God is about to do. So, after this meeting – take your time and look at my antecedents, my track record in the ministry when it comes to the prophetic. Please, take this word seriously. As a prophet, I am not an orator. I need corresponding power to talk. I need the suggestion of the Spirit to talk.

Let us pray as the Spirit directs. Lord, I pray for the peace of South Sudan. Have mercy on the nation! Have mercy on the nation! Let the leaders and citizens of South Sudan obtain Your mercy. Let the leaders and citizens of South Sudan obtain Your mercy. Thank You, Lord, for Your compassion and for Your forgiveness. In Jesus Christ’s name.

This is the message and prayer I am sent to deliver. It may look short – but its pregnant. Let us await the result. If God says yes, no one can say no! I pray the hearts of those concerned are controlled by God because the Word of God cannot go without fulfilment.

I repeat again – time has come for us to overcome our divisions, for us to put aside our differences. There is no more time for you or us again; God wants to move the nation forward. Long live this peace initiative! Long live the youngest nation in the world, South Sudan! Thank you very much.

  • Address given by Prophet TB Joshua on Tuesday November 12th 2019 at the Presidential Palace in Juba, South Sudan, in the presence of President Salva Kiir Mayardit, a host of senior government officials and thousands of South Sudanese citizens.

THE SCOAN LIVING WATER SERVICE: THE TRUE LIVING GOD IN ACTION


The greatest trick the devil is pulling lately is to convince the world that Jesus Christ in the person of the Holy Ghost does not exist that is, He is not alive. The devil doesn’t want us to know that there is an incredible power of God in action and the awesome benefits of God which people are experiencing in the Synagogue Church of All Nation’s Mountain of prayer. Another thing very high on the list of things the devil doesn’t want you to know is that; he will try to make you doubt such things which are Biblically authentic.

But today, Prophet TB Joshua through the power of God has continually proven beyond any reasonable doubt that Jesus is alive, and He is the Son of the Living God. The good thing about this is that God himself has decided to open the eyes of the few visitors during the mountain of prayer service, for them to see the Heavenly Being operating in the mountain of prayer.

Satan and his demons have been trying, by all means, to deceive people in believing that Prophet TB Joshua is an evil man and as such they lack the capacity to ponder the truth of God’s word, which says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and for those who trust in Christ, the strategy of the enemy is to confuse, frustrate, discourage and even steal the truth of God that has been already deposited in their lives, and ultimately attempt to mar the image of the SCOAN as well as that of Prophet TB Joshua. In this regard, the enemy construct a spiritual stronghold in the hearts of both believers and unbelievers

Often time, it starts with bad experience, offence or an evil attack or hurt by the enemy himself which lead to their heart becoming a fertile ground for the planting of seeds of lies and on this foundation, the enemy begins to build slowly but surely, a wall of deception, lies, wrong ideas about SCOAN and Prophet TB Joshua. The enemy goes on and feeds them with erroneous and distorted information about the Church activities like deliverance and healing. Unfortunately, immature Christians usually buy into these lies and agree with the enemy, thereby gaining control of their hearts in such a way that they end up defending lies and not the kingdom of God. Their perception is distorted in a way that they are unable to differentiate between lies and truth.

2 Corinthians 4:4 says, “The god of this age [a reference to Satan and his demons] has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” Satan strategy in the lives of those who haven’t trusted in Christ, is to make sure that they remain in the dark so that they can say what is happening in the mountain of prayer is fake and as such, they will never go there and experience the presence of God.

Be that as it may, it is a fact, which, unfortunately, cannot be denied; that some of God’s people are his worst enemies. By their coarse and wretched lives, they drive away many from the truth even before they have the opportunity to see the miracles of God. But thanks to Emanuel TV, YouTube and other platforms; unbelievers are starting to see the truth. That is why on 27th September 2019 history has been made when we saw more than hundred thousand of Nigerians from different churches in Nigeria as well as other Christians from around the world flocking to SCOAN for a free mountain of prayer service. As usual, this has disturbed TB Joshua’s critics and persecutors. We feel sorry for them, May God forgive them

Interestingly, there are some people today who are still refusing to go for healing and deliverance at the SCOAN, simply because their thoughts have been distorted. They call themselves Christians but on the other hand, they suffer from spiritual poverty and as such deny themselves God’s blessings which are freely available in SCOAN’ mountain of prayer.

They behave like a man who was trapped in the fire but refusing any assistance sent to him, saying that he is waiting for God to come and rescue Him until the whole house is engulfed by fire. He burnt to death and when he reached heaven, he asked God, “Lord, why did you not save me? I believed you with all my heart. God responded, “I sent you all the necessary help and you refused them all. What else could I possibly have done for you?” Like it or not, Prophet TB Joshua is a true servant of God sent to us and to deny the power of the Holy Spirit operating in the mountain of prayer is to deny Christ. What I am trying to say is that; God has outwardly done His part by blessing us with the prophet of our days but yet we refused to partake from the promises of God, which God has laid before us in the presence of our enemies. The question is; why do people decide to settle for darkness, destruction while the healing, deliverance and blessing of God are on the table for free?

Brothers and sisters, I want you to know that Almighty God has blessed Prophet TB Joshua with an elevated platform so that he can be a help for those unspoken for and the oppressed. He has been divinely empowered for the advancements of the kingdom of God because our God is a God of nations and will often raise individuals to intercede on behalf of the greater masses, who are in bondage. Prophet TB Joshua has been blessed so that He can become a blessing to others. He has been granted a platform with a greater blessing so that he can be in a position to speak for those whose voices cannot be heard, the oppressed, and the captives and no one can change that

In (Genesis 12:3) it is written that “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Those who believe in the God of Prophet TB Joshua will be the ultimate beneficiary of God’s blessings. In other words, it’s not about Prophet TB Joshua and his family, but it is about the neighbours that Jesus said we must love, the needy, orphans, the poor and everyone else. That is why Prophet TB Joshua does not take credit on the works of God; he is not even present in the mountain of prayer. He is also going to the mountain of prayer for his blessings. Do yourself a favour and honour the invitation of God, don’t reject God’s grace. Those who reject the grace of God have been warned In Numbers 14:11, when the Lord asks Moses, “How long will these people spurn Me? And how long will they not believe in Me, despite all the signs which I have performed in their midst?”

The chapter shows that people who repeatedly reject God’s grace may cross the line of no return. God is gracious and patient, but at some point, His judgment will fall on those who persist in unbelief. A person may repeatedly turn his heart away from the good news of Jesus Christ until he reaches a point where he is hardened beyond remedy. Proverbs 29:1 warns, “A man who hardens his neck after much reproof Will suddenly be broken beyond remedy. “Healing, deliverance and blessing are available in SCOAN, and only those who don’t harden their hearts will benefit

God’s promise of salvation for everyone is for Him to be glorified among the nations. The problem with the people of the world, like the Israelites, is that that they do not believe in the Lord and His promise to give them the land of Canaan (Num. 13:2; 14:11). They do not see that, God ‘want to deliver them from the bondage of satan for the salvation of their souls.

Let me remind you that there are temporal and eternal consequences for those who reject God’s salvation. In Heb. 3:12: it is written that “Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God.” Apostle Paul telling us that like everyone else you may be going through some difficult trials and tribulations, but this should not be your reason for not believing in God’s miracle, because this would indicate that you have an evil, unbelieving heart and to turn from Christ back to the world would be to fall away from the living God! If you do that, you will not enjoy the many blessings of knowing Christ in this life.

But today, some people called themselves Christian and yet don’t believe in the miracles He performs. Outwardly, they profess to be obeying God but inwardly rejecting him, contradicting indeed. They stand in their high places and criticise Prophet TB Joshua and yet the Prophet is not the one touching people in the mountain of prayer. They allow themselves to be misled and attempt to save themselves by trusting in themselves and their leaders and this is the main reason they will miss God’s offer of free grace through Jesus Christ.

The Bible is clear that God will bless those who trust His promises and follow Him fully. Jesus is talking to the world, he is using Prophet TB Joshua to show us that He is a living God, a miracle-working God and those who believe in Him will be saved. According to Apostle John, Thomas was not present on Easter Sunday evening when Jesus appeared to the other disciples and devoted followers (John 20:24). And regardless of what they said, Thomas refused to believe that Jesus had risen till he saw Jesus with his own eyes (John 20:25) — a declaration that earned him for posterity the unflattering title “Doubting Thomas.” Thomas’s doubts may have been humanly understandable, but they were not commendable. They were sinful, as is all unbelief (Romans 14:23). Finally, a full week after Easter, Jesus appeared when Thomas was present and said, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” (John 20:27). Thomas’s repented and said, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28). Then in John 20:29) Jesus said: “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20:29).

Children of God, here Jesus’ is telling us that others had not yet seen Him, but still believed in his resurrection and as such their believing was more blessed. This means that those who rely on their eyes of faith more than the physical eyes will receive the promised blessing of God. Glorious, inexpressible joy comes not by seeing Jesus now, but by believing in him now. You don’t have to see Jesus in person in the mountain of prayer for you to believe, just believe in his presence in the mountain of prayer and you will experience his touch. Even if you are watching on Emmanuel tv, connect with faith and He will touch you

Like the woman who testified on Sunday, 29th Sept 2019, she has confessed that she never believes in what is happening at SCOAN. According to her, everything is arranged and as such fake. But because we serve a God of grace, the Holy Spirit arrested her and led her to the mountain of prayer where she experiences the unexplainable, indescribable encounter with Jesus himself. He always did for the others, Jesus forgave her unbelieve and graciously restored her. Jesus used her unbelief, to reveal to her who is behind the miracles in the mountain of prayer. Jesus made her a gracious example for all of us who suffer from spiritual poverty and use the physical eyes to see instead of eyes of faith. So If you find that you are spiritually blind, I mean; your seeing of Jesus is impaired, Thomas is teaching you not to declare, “Unless I see I will never believe,” but rather say, “I believe; help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24).

My friends, without an accurate knowledge of who Christ is, you just are not going to be drawn to him. The study of “Christian evidence” is one of the crying needs of our time. There is a lot of evidence of Jesus’, healing and deliverance in SCOAN. Those who turn from the truth of God, or reject the Holy Spirit as a source of power and love in their lives, have denied Christ. All Christians must study their Bibles to learn what Christ taught and then to put it to practice in their lives. So please, if you do not know the spirit powering a person, do not open your mouth to rebel because you might be rebelling against God who you falsely claim to be worshipping. Reject the lies that the enemy has planted in your heart and trust in God

Lastly, I want to encourage you, beloved brothers and sisters in Jesus name to visit the SCOAN and freely experience the presence of God in the mountain of prayer. I repeat, IT IS FOR FREE, NO REGISTRATION FEE, you just need a free heart, a hear free of unforgiveness, pain of the past, without grudges, that is a repentant heart and I am sure that God’s mercy will shine through to give hope to all of you; who will respond in faith. I am a witness and I know who is operating in that mountain, Jesus Christ of Nazareth and his Cherubim’s and Seraphim’s. Remain blessed.

“Why I Cried Over Xenophobia” – Tb Joshua Reveals!


tb joshua, scoan, emmanuel tv
Prophet TB Joshua

After shedding tears last week at the outbreak of xenophobic violence in South Africa, Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua has spoken about his uncharacteristic display of emotions.

“It was very necessary for Mr TB Joshua – not Prophet – to cry because of what he saw coming,” Joshua told a congregation – which included hundreds of South African nationals on pilgrimage to his church – on Sunday 15th September 2019.

The cleric proceeded to thank the multicultural congregants – and believers worldwide – for joining him in prayer.

“Thank God our prayers were answered,” he declared to enthusiastic applause, evidently referring to the palpable de-escalation in tension in the volatile region.

Corroborating this assertion, thirty of the Nigerians who voluntarily returned from South Africa in the wake of the violence visited The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) to thank Joshua for the “tears he shed for African unity”.

In a report published in the Nigerian Tribune , Uche Victor Nwaocha explained there was tangible fear within the foreign community in South Africa with threats of more xenophobic violence looming large but Joshua’s tearful call for African unity changed the equation.

“The tears he shed last Sunday not only touched hearts but saved many souls. After that Sunday service, there was calmness,” the Nigerian, who lived in South Africa for seven years, revealed.

Ichigodora Dengarinenharo, a Zimbabwean also living in South Africa, echoed Uche’s sentiments in a comment on YouTube, insisting the song was actually “a prayer”.

“After releasing this song, all of a sudden there was calmness in the whole country,” she wrote.“There were plans to spread xenophobia to all provinces on the 9th of September but instead, after releasing this song on the 8th, we woke up to a quiet South Africa.”

Kayode Johnson Oluwafemi, another of the Nigerian returnees, explained he stayed in his house for almost a fortnight after the violence broke out in fear of reprisal attacks.

“The man of God’s message and tears shook the whole of Africa. Even those South Africans that were fighting before – they called us for a meeting of settlement… We saw the changes immediately. Even me – after the message, I had confidence to go out,” he shared.

Joshua, who is known for his humanitarian gestures, gave the group N3,000,000 to support them on their return to their homeland.

Speaking further during the church service, the cleric insisted that every nation has its challenges but the approach of the provoked South Africans “was wrong”.

“It’s okay to be wrong only if we retract our steps,” he insisted, adding that he had a sent a message to “people in authority” in South Africa calling on them to “hold a peace rally” to send a message of appeasement.

True to his words, South Africans gathered in large numbers later on Sunday, taking to the streets to stage a peaceful rally calling for African unity and apologising to foreign nationals targeted in the xenophobic attacks.

South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa equally revealed his nation is sending a team of Special Envoys throughout the continent to deliver a message of solidarity to the African Heads of State.

‘Africa Unite’ , the song Joshua composed addressing the precarious situation, has been viewed over 1,000,000 times on YouTube and Facebook since its release last week.

South African Returnees Get Financial Aid, Succour From SCOAN


Says “TB Joshua’s tears against xenophobia on live TV saved our lives”

They looked trapped, beaten and ruffled. It was a mix of pain and relative relief. Pain, because all they had laboured for had vanished; pain, because their livelihoods had disappeared; pain, because they lost loved ones; and relief, because now they had returned home and from the airport, they came to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), with headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria. The first batch of returnees were victims of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

As they entered and sat down in the church, they began relating their stories of escape one after the other. According to them, it was the tears of Prophet T.B. Joshua during the live Sunday Service broadcast on September 8, 2019 that calmed the crisis in South Africa. As they came to SCOAN, the founder and spiritual head of the ministry, Prophet T.B. Joshua, told them that love would always remain supreme, just as he stressed on the need for unity, harmony and togetherness.

Prophet T.B. Joshua in his message to the returnees promised to continue to help them by praying for them and also through financial aid. He promised to help them by investing in their future which is the future of Africa. He equally mentioned that their spiritual wellbeing remained important to him. On behalf of himself and Emmanuel TV partners, Prophet Joshua gave them N3,000,000, with each returnee getting N100,000. The man of God stated that love is the only language that transcends all barriers.

While telling their stories, the returnees whose plane arrived Nigeria on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, gave different accounts of their ordeals but thanked Prophet Joshua for being used by God for salvaging the situation and for providing succour for them after their return.

According to Uche Victor Nwaocha, one of the returnees: “With me are my colleagues, friends, fellow brothers and sisters who came from South Africa voluntarily. I don’t even know where the problem of Africans attacking Africans came from.

‘’I was involved in the baking business. I baked chin-chin and I am proud to say it. I built the business from scratch. Africa should help us. The United Nations should help us; Prophet T.B. Joshua has tried. If others can join hands with the man of God and Emmanuel TV, then things will be better. Prophet T.B. Joshua forewarned Africa and they neglected it. This is the repercussion. The reason we all agreed to come to the Synagogue Church of All Nations is to appreciate what this ministry, Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel partners have been doing in our lives. We don’t joke with his prophecies. We always watch Emmanuel TV; that was what saved us. The tears that Prophet T.B. Joshua shed last Sunday during the live Sunday Service broadcast saved many lives. It reduced the catastrophe. After the Sunday Service where Prophet Joshua shed tears, there was calm everywhere. The police and politicians were confused. We took the opportunity of the calm to board the plane and head back to Nigeria. Many Nigerians are still coming. They don’t want us. We can see that. “

Kayode Johnson Oluwafemi equally narrated his experience. According to him, “I stayed in Pretoria Central, South Africa. This incident happened in my base. I stayed indoors for over two weeks before I could come out. On Sunday I heard that Prophet TB Joshua spoke to Africa. He wept on live TV and that saved many lives. I decided to return to Nigeria. I appreciate the man of God. He is a blessing to this generation. After Prophet TB Joshua wept against xenophobia, we were surprised that the South Africans called us for a meeting. They told us that they were willing to settle the whole issue. I was then able to step out of my house. The taxi drivers also called us for settlement.”

In his account, Aamefunam Ogbonna, another returnee stated that “The xenophobic attacks started on September 2, 2019. It was terrible. On September 8, there were tears by Prophet T.B. Joshua asking Africans to unite. His tears affected my soul. I prayed that God should use the tears in turning around the situation in South Africa. I prayed for peace. It was the tears of the man of God that made the police rally round us in saving us from the attackers. We must show love to one another.

Jude Anthony, a Nigerian based in the United States of America but who also lived in South Africa, commneded the efforts of Prophet Joshua in salvaging the situation. ‘’I am a Nigerian from the United States of America. I lived in South Africa for seven years. A friend of mine sent a Whatsapp video to me where I saw Prophet T.B. Joshua calling on Africans to unite. I saw how tears flowed from his eyes. The Bible says that God will answer the prayers of a righteous man. God heard Prophet T.B. Joshua that day when he wept. He is well respected across the world. His message has also been about love and unity. We are here today to thank him for interceding on behalf of humanity. I believe God answered his prayers on that day in stopping the spread of the calamity,’’ he said.

While recieving the money on behalf of others, Mr Nwaocha stated that ‘’We are grateful to Prophet T.B Joshua, the Synagogue Church of All Nations and Emmanuel TV. When we came here, we felt you would turn us back but you welcomed us. We are very grateful. Continue the good work.’’

On his part, Mr Anthony noted that ‘’we are most grateful. We are the first batch of returnees. We are overwhelmed by this. We have lost our livelihoods but thank God, we thank the man of God.’’ Others who spoke, thanked the man of God for the reception and the financial assistance. Olusoji Ayoola, another returnee, revealed that ‘’I am happy that we are back home. We give God the glory. We thank Prophet TB Joshua.’’

Daniel Eluebo, also a returnee could not hold back his joy when he exclaimed that ‘’I want to thank God for what he has done. All these started unexpected and God has used it to bless us unexpectedly.’’

It will be recalled that on September 8, 2019, during a live Sunday Service broadcast, Prophet Joshua in tears called on Africans to unite against the hateful tendencies that divide humanity, with Africa in particular. According to a song composed by him and jointly performed, Prophet Joshua said: ‘’Africa, unite. Don’t let fellow Africans feel unwelcome in our lands. Africa, unite. Remember where we are coming. We need each other; we need one another to grow. The South cannot do it alone. The West cannot go it alone. The East cannot do it alone. The North cannot go it alone. See the fight over joblessness among the youths. Where is the law? See the fight as a setback to Africa. Africa, unite… Let us come together. Africa, unite. Let us live in harmony.’’

 

TB Joshua shares sombre message on 5th anniversary of SCOAN building collapse


tb joshua, scoan
Prophet TB Joshua

Exactly five years after the tragic collapse of a guesthouse at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Pastor T.B. Joshua has honoured the ‘blessed memory’ of those who died in the incident with a thought-provoking message.

On September 12th 2014, 115 people lost their lives in the horrific building collapse, 84 of them South African nationals visiting The SCOAN for religious reasons.

“A Christian does not consider death to be his end but the end of his trouble,”the cleric eulogised in a special broadcast on Emmanuel TV in commemoration of the anniversary.

Joshua stressed the inevitability of death, adding that a person’s age or the nature of their demise were not the critical issue. “What matters is the grace to continue living hereafter,”he said.

Waxing philosophical, Joshua asked viewers to be introspective as they remember the dark day.

“How are you spending your life,” he reflectively asked. “Because the greatest way to use life is to spend it on something that will outlive it – for instance, to love someone more dearly every day.”

Joshua called on his followers to proactively engage in helping others, stressing that “when you look around you”, you would assuredly find those “in need of your love, help, strength and time.”

He concluded with a sober reminder: “Live each day as if it were your last. Someday, you will be right.”

Despite the passing of five years, the controversy surrounding the cause of the deadly collapse remains, further induced by the attendant court case stuck in a seemingly endless legal quagmire.

The SCOAN still insists the church was ‘attacked’, pointing to a military plane which encircled the ill-fated building several times before its implosion.

The incident, however, has done little to quell the flow of foreign pilgrims to Joshua’s church with numbers from the Nigerian immigration service estimating six in every ten tourists to Nigeria are bound for The SCOAN.

Africa Unite: Tb Joshua’s Tearful Song Goes Viral!


tb joshua, crying, africa uniteTB Joshua’s emotional song calling for African unity has gone viral, ratcheting up over 700,000 views on social media in under two days.

The Nigerian cleric, who penned the lyrics in the in the wake of the recent eruption of xenophobic violence in South Africa, was visibly moved and shed tears as the song was played during his church service on Sunday 8th September 2019.

The song clearly struck a nerve with thousands commenting that the composition made them equally emotional and echoing Joshua’s call for African unity.

The simple melody calls on Africans to avoid violence, overlook differences and embrace peace.

According to the lyrics: “The South cannot do it alone. The West cannot go it alone. The East cannot do it alone. The North cannot go it alone. We need each other; we need one another to grow. Africa unite.”

Joshua also called on all parties involved to respect and uphold the law. “See the killing over drug misuse. See the fight over joblessness among the youth. Where is the law?”

The song concludes with a plea for Africans to ensure fellow citizens of their continent do not ‘feel unwelcome’.

Remi Sonaiya, a former Nigerian Presidential candidate, was among those to react on Twitter after watching the song replayed on Emmanuel TV.

“It was rather moving and many in the congregation were in tears. May the prayers be answered. Killing and looting aren’t the solution to our problems. Good governance is,” she wrote.

On Emmanuel TV’s official YouTube Channel, the song has recorded over 300,000 views with another 400,000 watching the clip uploaded to Joshua’s verified Facebook account.
