What God Showed TB Joshua shocking 2014


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Dear Editor,

Renowned Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua has declared 2014 as a year of ‘crossing the bridge’, prophesying it to be a year of destiny where corruption would be corrected in Nigeria as corrupt leaders would go down.

It was an electric atmosphere in The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) where large crowds thronged to usher in the New Year 2014. T.B. Joshua came out around 11pm to deliver his much anticipated prophetic message in a broadcast beamed live via the churches popular television station Emmanuel TV.

He first counseled believers to stay steadfast in faith despite the challenges that would arise in the coming year. “We are tempted so that we may pray the more. Afflictions are meant for our spiritual benefit,” he encouraged the congregants and television viewers.

Moving on, he spoke about what was to be expected in the New Year, attendees listening with rapt attention and scribbling notes as he spoke. “This New Year 2014 is not like any other year in the past. It is a year of crossing bridge. To cross the bridge, you need to grab onto faith,” he began. “This is not going to be easy for the mighty. Many of the mighty will fall. Pray for them. The rich, famous and popular people – many will fall this 2014 because crossing the bridge is not going to be easy; they need God. Many of them believe it is their own making to be great in their own area of expertise.”

He went on to decry the effect this ‘fall’ would have on the business world as, according to him, “98% of businesses and companies are owned by these people.” Specifying a field of business that would especially be affected, he said the airline industry would face multiple challenges, leading to an unprecedented rise in ticket prices, particularly noting that African airlines would be most affected. Joshua further declared 2014 to be a year of destiny for those would ‘follow the ways of the Lord’. “Many people that are not known will be rise by destiny,” he prophesied.

Talking about the current Nigerian political situation, Joshua said, “There will be a leadership tussle on who will lead and who will be presidential candidate in APC which will affect them as a political party. They should be vigilant. Many are with them in flesh but not with them in spirit.” Talking about the current crisis Nigeria’s ruling party PDP are embroiled in, the prophet stated that they would ‘pay any price to unite’ but that the issue of who would be the presidential candidate would cause challenges.

“Many of the key leaders in political parties will go down in 2014,” Joshua then announced to the somber audience. “If many key leaders go down with 2014, what will now happen in 2015? Pray for 2015 to be fulfilled. The beginner is not the owner but the finisher.”

He then stated to thunderous applause that 2014 would see a positive improvement for the nation in the area of corruption. “What will happen in 2014 will result in the correction of the corruption in Nigeria because many corrupt leaders will go down in 2014.”

Joshua then prayed for the congregants who all lit candles to symbolize the dawn of the New Year. “God has promised that 2014 is the year of destiny. Your destiny cannot be changed. This New Year, your destiny cannot be tampered with. I command your dream to come true, your dream to come to fulfillment, in Jesus’ name.”

SYNAGOGUE CHURCH GOES AGOG IN LONDON!


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

AN EARLY START:
Sunday 1st September was a day to remember in SCOAN UK! From as early as 8am, throngs of people began to gather outside the venue in Central London, some who had been travelling from the four corners of the UK and many more who made the journey from other countries just to attend the Anointing Water Service. The atmosphere of faith and expectancy was palpable as a large queue began to form in the chilly hours of the morning, several hours before the service was even due to start!

SCOAN UK Service

By the time the doors were opened, the steady influx of people was nothing short of overwhelming. With the venue holding close to 1000 people quickly filled up, three different overflow points had to be hurriedly arranged. An adjacent hall holding 400 people with a live link to the events of the service was soon flooded with people, as was another hall with close to 200 people, coupled with the foyer area that was further swarming with the excited worshippers. Before the service even had a chance to commence, every possible area where people could gather was occupied and we were physically unable to allow any more people into the venue. For those who arrived late and were unable to enter the service, we do sincerely apologise. Although we were expecting a large crowd, the numbers that arrived exceeded all our expectations!

OVERCOME YOUR DOUBT:Worship
The service began with a time of praise and worship, the pinnacle being a moving classical rendition of the Lord’s Prayer and the beautiful worship song ‘Agnus Dei’, performances that left much of the crowd teary eyed. The worship was followed by the congregation watching a faith-building message from Prophet T.B. Joshua titled, ‘Overcome your doubt.’ He explained in the message, “God does not mind doubt, as long as you are seeking answers from Him in the midst of that doubt. However, doubt can become sin if it leads you away from God to scepticism, cynicism and hard heartedness.” Faith was lifted and hearts were opened.

HEALTH REVIVED, HOPE RESTORED:
Testimony time ensued with two powerful testimonies of people whose lives had been touched in a dramatic way following their coming to The SCOAN and receiving the Anointing Water. First was Alex Jones, a young man from the Isle of Wight who had been suffering from a rare, debilitating and isolating mental condition known as ‘depersonalization disorder’. For six years, he had been practically living alone in his room, completely detached from reality and his once thriving social life. Feeling as if he was not in control of his sensory perceptions, basic tasks such as conversing with people and concentrating on a particular action became burdensome chores. After losing his job as a telecommunications engineer, Alex had been referred to various doctors and psychiatrists in search of a cure. However, he was eventually told that there was nothing more that could be done for him medically after being administered the maximum level of dosage available for the medication he was taking with no seeming improvement or change in symptoms.

Alex Jones Testimony

It was in this condition that Alex stumbled upon a video of Prophet T.B. Joshua on YouTube after doing a general search for deliverance. As he watched clip after clip, something struck a chord within the heart of the young Brit as realisation dawned that his problem was more spiritual than physical and therefore required Divine intervention. Further investigation revealed that SCOAN UK was holding a prayer line service later that month for which he dutifully registered and attended. As Alex was ministered with the Anointing Water, he said he saw light and brightness all around him but it was only when he reached back home that the full extent of the miracle became evident. Praying in his room with the Anointing Sticker, Alex felt a strange sensation within his head, as if someone knocked reality back into place. Purity of vision and clarity of focus was restored in a glorious moment!

The rest is history. For nearly eight months, Alex has been completely free from the mental problem. He has now started work as a film-maker, even receiving international offers of employment and has no more symptoms or signs of the depersonalization disorder. With the full awareness of his doctors, Alex gradually stopped taking his medication to the point where he has not taken any for several months now with no withdrawal symptoms. He advised people to know that when all hope seems lost, there is always hope in Jesus!

BARRENNESS SENT PACKING:
The next testimony was that of Mr & Mrs Michael Mortty who had been barren for six long years. Literally two weeks after getting married, Jane Mortty was confirmed to have multiple fibroids, leading to intense pain especially during her menstrual cycle. The Ghanaian-British couple went through a series of medical tests upon which they were informed the only medical option was for them to undergo artificial insemination. The initial attempt appeared to be successful as Jane fell pregnant only to discover six weeks later that she had an early miscarriage. To complicate matters, the miscarriage appeared seemingly trapped in her womb as the foetus refused to come out, leading the doctors to urgently call for her to be operated upon. Having been introduced to Emmanuel TV by her mum in Ghana at this time, Jane decided to seek Divine intervention. Her mum sent her the Anointing Water by post which finally reached her after an address mix up left it in postal limbo for several weeks. The day she ministered the Anointing Water, she bled heavily as the products of conception came out.

Barrenness Testimony

After this traumatic experience, Jane recounted a dream she had. She found herself in a classroom and saw Prophet T.B. Joshua approaching, accompanied by the five wise men. Upon declaring to them that she was seeking for a child, he told her that God would bring the miracle in His own time and did not require any support. She simply had to leave the issue for Him and exercise patience. It was at this point the duo made a mutual decision of faith – to wait for God’s time. They visited The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria, received the Anointing Water themselves and continued to minister it in faith, thanking God that His promise of fruitfulness would soon unfold in their lives.

It was several months later that the couple both had dreams on the very same night that signalled the end of their barrenness. Jane saw herself undergoing spiritual deliverance in her dream, waking up with the words, ‘Thank You, Jesus’ on her lips and the realisation that something supernatural had just happened. Michael simultaneously dreamed of a Divine encounter where he was told that God had removed the infertile part of his sperm and would be able to impregnate his wife thereafter. A couple of weeks later, Jane was confirmed to be pregnant! What was a medical impossibility had been made possible by the Almighty God. After a smooth pregnancy, Jane delivered a beautiful baby girl, presenting her to the congregation as ‘Elia’. She advised barren couples never to give in to desperation or defeat but to continue to wait on God, having total trust in His perfect plan.

WHEN THE POWER OF GOD IS PRESENT:
Mass Prayer Manifestation
Although Prophet T.B. Joshua was not in physical attendance at the meeting, the power of God flowing through him was extremely evident, especially as the congregation engaged in mass prayer led by the prophet via the huge video screen in the auditorium. As the prayer ensued, buoyed by a public declaration of a decision to follow Jesus, God began to move around the auditorium and people seated in the overflow sections, bringing healing and deliverance in a mighty way. Those under demonic attack and bondage began to manifest as the light of God exposed the darkness hiding in their lives and they fell uncontrollably to the ground. People began to vomit out poisonous substances that had been lurking in their systems. Altogether, the palpable presence of God was clearly seen at work in people’s lives.

THE SECRET OF THE MIRACLES IS JESUS:
With an atmosphere of belief cultivated, it was time for the prayer line to begin. As people came forward and the Anointing Water was ministered, there was instantaneous reaction as the evil spirits behind the misfortunes of people were exposed and expelled! “I am Lucifer; he wants to preach and sing for God. I gave him the spirit of lust,” exclaimed a spirit within a young man who was violently reacting to the prayer with the Anointing Water.

“I made her divorce; she used to beat up her husband,” another spirit lividly cackled upon questioning. “I am the queen of the coast; he is supposed to worship me. I caused setback in his career as a lawyer,” were the words spewing forth from another gentleman. When his wife rushed out from the crowd to confirm the terrible setbacks besetting her husband’s career, she was also ministered with the Anointing Water and manifested herself.

A lady painfully struggled forward, aided by a crutch and wearing a huge clinical boot, following a serious ankle injury coupled with an increasingly worsening case of sciatica. As the Anointing Water was ministered to her, she began to shake uncontrollably. A Divine operation was at work! Declared free in Jesus’ name, the elderly lady jumped to her feet, threw aside her crutch, took off her lumbar corset and began to walk unaided! After removing the clinical boot, the worship team burst out in song and she began to dance, joined by the animated crowd who witnessed the whole miracle! Tearfully testifying, she said it was the first time she had walked freely in 18 months!

Healing In Jesus' NameAnother lady was brought forward wearing a neck collar and evidently in serious pain. The Sierra Leonean explained that she was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis almost a year ago and the pains had steadily increased ever since. She was literally living on painkillers and would often wake up at night sobbing in agonising pain. Her Nigerian husband became her constant carer as she was rendered unable to engage in any household chores or work-related assignments. As the Anointing Water was ministered to her, there was no seeming sign of change. However, upon being declared free, she loosened her neck collar, cast it away and began to move her neck! Shocked at her restored mobility, she looked at her husband and burst into tears. “The pain is gone,” was all she could incoherently mumble as joy and wonder met in a miraculous amalgamation.

It was miracle upon miracle as supernatural healing continued to unfold. Another lady limped into the auditorium, heavily relying on a crutch. Her problems were multiple, including severe osteoarthritis and lumbar spondylosis. Having lost her job as a nurse due to her inability to walk at work, she explained the pain was both intense and immense. As the Anointing Water was ministered, the reaction was unexpected! An evil spirit within her growled angrily, stating that it was the cause of her ailment and indeed the afflictions of the entire family. After her deliverance, she rose up without the crutch and began to walk freely! As the cause of her problem had been exposed through deliverance, instant healing followed and she danced in the auditorium, much to the delight of the enthralled crowd.

CONNECTED IN THE OVERFLOW
Everyone in attendance at the service received prayer with the Anointing Water, including those in the overflow sections. The evangelists moved amidst the crowd ministering Anointing Water into bottles of water people had faithfully brought, as well as into their mouths. The service closed at 5:30pm, people returning to their destinations in thanksgiving for the service they had been part of. Indeed, what a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us! A million thanks are not enough, except to say, ‘Thank You, Jesus!’.

The British Now Recognises TB Joshua – UK Guardian News paper


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Following Yesterday Prophet TB Joshua’s SCOAN London Anointing water service held yesterday with over 3000 peoples in Central London, Over 15.000 in his Ghana branch and millions over the glued to their TV sets watching His TV Station, broadcasting the service from Lagos, the Guardian News paper one of the biggest news papers in the UK has has hit the nail on the head in the story below:

In Africa’s largest metropolis, the district of Ikotun Egbe has turned into a boom town. The draw? Temitope Balogun Joshua, one of Nigeria’s richest “super-pastors”, whose church attracts 50,000 worshippers weekly – more than the combined number of visitors to Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.

Seeking promises of prosperity and life-changing spiritual experiences, visitors flock from around the globe. Enterprising Lagos residents – those not turfed out by landlords turning their properties into hotels – have transformed the rundown area into a hotbed of business.

On a Saturday afternoon, traffic swirls around the four-storey, giant-columned Synagogue Church of All Nations. Delegates are pouring in for the following day’s service. “They should really build a branch in South Africa – it’s a long way to come and the hotels here are so-so,” says Mark, a sunburnt businessman from Johannesburg, accompanied by two friends from Botswana.

As the church’s palm tree-lined entrance gives way to a maze of skinny, unpaved roads, knots of touts materialise. “In one year I made enough money to buy my first car,” says Chris, using a tattered hotel brochure to mop his brow. He is paid 100 naira (about 40p) for each client he brings in.

Sparkling new hotels rise incongruously among the shacks. At one, with a logo suspiciously similar to the Sheraton’s, a new chef has recently been employed. “He can cook food from Singapore, because we were having a lot of guests from there who struggle with Nigerian food,” says the manager, Ruky, at a reception desk framed by pictures of Joshua.

Tony Makinwa says most of his laundromat profits come from tourists. “God has favoured my business. People come here and fall in love with the place and overstay their visits,” he says.

Also doing a roaring trade are the international calling centres with foreign visitor discounts, clothes shops offering outfits to celebrate miracles, and the plastic chair rentals that cater for church overspill.

The area’s dirt streets are punctured by unfinished, barnlike buildings as dozens of other churches offer all-day worship services. Almost as many mosques dot the area. Islam and Christianity are growing at blistering paces across Africa, with Nigeria home to the continent’s most populous mix of both faiths.

Money-changer Sidi Bah has travelled thousands of miles from Mali to continue his trade here. “I came because I heard many people from many countries visit. In one day I can change six or seven different types of currency,” he says. “There are more mosques here than in my village in [Muslim] Mali.”

Miracle-promising Pentecostal churches took root across the continent in the 1980s, as African economies were battered by falling world commodity prices. Migrants poured into slums in search of jobs and dreams.

Ruky has converted her cramped home into a 20-bed lodging where mainly rural workers stay for 800 naira a night. Mattresses are half price. “If you are sick like me, you have no job, so you are used to sleeping on the floor anyhow,” says Andrew Olagbele, whose spine was crushed by a car accident, lying on a mattress in a crammed room. “I pray the Lord will touch me tomorrow so I can walk again.”

As dusk sets in, cars continue streaming in. A man hanging from the open door of a car thundering gospel songs waves copies of homemade CDs for sale. Denis Kokou and his wife, a baby on her hip, look on with weary smiles. “This is our first time coming from [regional neighbour] Togo. We are so happy to be here with our daughter.”

Strong Attack Launched Against TB Joshua


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

We at TB Joshua Fans UK believe that the first to present his case will always seem right until  another comes and questions him. It is patience in asking the right questions that will force either probity or deception to reveal itself where present. But whether true or false, what we stoutly represent is a refusal to accept a one sided story like other partisan sites and whatever stance you may have taken on this controversial prophet, either as a supporter or critic, it still remains unequivocally clear that most of the stories circulating the internet that are mitigating against this prophet at most came from those who were once his ardent front-line followers, aside from raising a red-flag by giving quite some weight to their testimonies, and being a bothersome thorn in the flesh of pro-Scoan folks, it also further demystifies the personality of TB Joshua In the context of him still having an increasing local and international follower-ship even with just about enough defaming material to quickly set people on their heels away from him. A quick search on Google will reveal various testimonies by these ex-disciples of TB Joshua’s ministry, putting forward quite vehemently, debasing claims of sexual abuse and ill- treatment allegedly suffered at his hands, and this was well complemented with further questions in animosity of the legitimacy of the very miracles that seemed to have prompted them to follow TB Joshua in the first place. We at TB Joshua Fans UK  would never have contested the “truthfulness” of these allegations if the word “betrayal” never existed, that is, the possibility of all these claims of abuse being falsified and untrue just as some others hold that it is true, is what qualifies it as a debatable issue, for at least those who have never lived within the Scoan premises.

It is however quite surprising that we hardly ever hear stories like this about other ministers or pastors, and the reason most likely, as our findings report is his peculiar style of training followers as disciples, different from the modern conventional methods. Quite a number of ministries have a former school for disciples who desire to be trained for ministerial work, with a process for enrollment, tuition for training, a well defined course outline in discipleship training and finally a certificate issued proving that they met the required standards during their training, but TB Joshua’s methods seem very far from this in a peculiar sort of way, apart from having his imposing edifice at the SCOAN, Lagos Nigeria receiving and playing host to thousands of pilgrims from across the world, it also houses men and women from different countries, of different ages and works of Life who have left their countries, homes, Jobs and others to follow this man as disciples, with him bearing the full responsibility for their upkeep. The prophet Himself is said to live in the same compound with his disciples and in an interview with Evelyn Joshua, TB Joshua’s wife – they are there for an indefinite period of time, in her words she said “its a lifelong training” now we know that the implications of this would be at first unprecedented, but now the results are definitely crystallizing out clearly – with all the defaming allegations circumventing the internet as well as the advent of the “wise men” who seem to be the evidence of those who have being fully trained.

Having lived with the prophet for years, a lot of these disciples would definitely know more about the inner workings of the ministry, so without asking questions and getting a different account from other ex-disciples, the populace would have no choice but to believe them, without getting to hear the other side of the story  – So the purpose of this post is to bring into debate the allegations made against TB Joshua by certain ex-disciples, of which several similar ones exist, carefully considering their possibility of occurrence whilst subjecting them to sound reasoning and if possible come to a logical conclusion.

The first we shall consider with an excerpt from an anti-scoan website  is “The story of Emma“,  A Scoan ex-disciple who had supposedly dedicated ten years of her Life to Scoan,  her claim of  abuse and ill treatment is stated below.

I’m very grateful to have found this site. I personally have been affected by TB Joshua and the SCOAN in a most negative way. I’m eternally grateful to Jesus for giving me a second chance when I was so deeply deceived. Since leaving SCOAN I have discovered a completely different side to God – an intimate relationship with Him with no human mediator, and total forgiveness without your past mistakes being used to break you down.
I plan on sharing my 10 year experience of being a disciple in increments as I have the strength to do so. I prefer to do it anonymously for my own safety and that of my family. I left about a year ago and am still coming to grips with the reality that SCOAN was a cult. It was a big shock when I realised that what I’d given my life to and built my future upon is nothing but a cult. I was horrified to find that the isolated communal lifestyle, denial of privacy, late night meetings, sleep deprivation, reporting, character breaking disciple meetings and so on, occur in most cults and have nothing to do with the Holy Spirit’s leading of TB Joshua as I once believed. I read about cults like Mormonism, Jehovah’s witness, Scientology, The twelve tribes, Indian guru cults, etc and saw striking similarities. They also record your confession and use it to silence you should you later leave like what happened to Bisola Johnson in Beware of Blasphemers. They also encourage that you sell your possessions and give it to their leaders, live in community and give all decision making authority to the leader. They also have meetings of character assassination, ie, monitoring, reporting and correction as SCOAN calls it. They also live in “compounds”, communal living where access to information is controlled, the leader’s videos / teachings are continually played to you and a false reality “euphoria” is created with no opportunity to question.
The hardest thing for me to come to terms with is the fact that I may never see my loved ones (brothers and sisters as they’re called in SCOAN) again. I sometimes feel guilty as I “move on with my life”, that I’m leaving so many sincere, but sincerely deceived people behind and it seems as if there is not much I can do to open their eyes. Since I had completely cut off from my family and friends – it now seems very strange to reconnect with them after 10 long years. So many things have changed but in some ways, I am exactly where I started before I joined SCOAN – I have no qualifications, no job reference, no proof of what I’ve done with my life. I’m only beginning to see the effects of many years of sexual and emotional abuse I received from TB Joshua. But I am determined more than ever to trust in God alone, deal with my past in His strength and become what He made me to be.

For the anti-scoan folks who subscribe to her story, what are your strong reasons for believing what you never witnessed about  a Prophet of renown?

And for the pro -Scoan folks why would you refuse to believe her story?, what in your opinion could she possibly gain by lying?

Love to hear your thoughts in the comments…!

TB Joshua’s Enemies Runs Out of Ammunitions


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

It has become very clear now that one of the enemies of TB Joshua and his ministry based in Bristol

Has run out of ammunition hence, recycling and reposting old articles which we’ve already responded to. We are also reposting our response to their article here.

Editor’s Note:

In view of the fact that so many people still seem to believe the liberal bias Journalism of BBC and SKY news on SCOAN, We’re making this post to revisit the issue and also as a Tribute to a regular commenter on TB Joshua watch who goes by the alias Ironclad, and works in an investigative/audit field involving white collar crime in the State of New Jersey, we with this post present collated excerpts from his comments throughout TB Joshua watch which are as insightful as they are revealing and are facts too important to be at the bottom of many comments on TB Joshua watch. Apart from exposing the hidden agenda behind the BBC and SKY news report on SCOAN, he also laments how too many cessationists would rather leave God in the fridge of their unbelief, with miracles abounding and the gifts of the Spirit shining in third world countries.

TB Joshua Watch, BBC and SKY report On SCOAN – “The Hidden Agenda”

TB Joshua ArticleThe BBC news report mentions a Jane Iwu (I don’t fail to notice the ‘Jane’ part of Doe) who “knows of a friend.” No name. No dates. There’s also mention of a “second woman from east London who told of a friend.” Notice, an unnamed woman tells of another unnamed woman. Both accounts are hearsay and thus not good admissible evidence. Where’s the third alleged victim? Can we really say with full confidence that these are worthy evidences to justify such a firm conclusion as the heading of the report proclaims? That’s misleading. Guilty until proven innocent is not a good Christian practice; but then again, who said these liberal news agencies are in favor of Christianity to begin with. News reporting should be more responsible than that. Maybe that’s why respectable news agencies like the AP have not picked up on it. We should not let bias blind us away from what is honest and true. If what they say is true, then the perpetrators are liable for manslaughter, at least? This indeed has all the trappings of an indictable offense. Have the police been conducting an investigation? Are there lawsuits pending? I know Great Britain has a very severe judicial system. And the President of Nigeria would not allow one of its citizens, whom he personally knows, to get away with this. It is not good for the nation or his political reputation. I don’t need to travel to a faraway country to realize that in every church and in every movement there will always be those who will stir the waters of controversy because of envy or because something that has been done against them. There will always be opponents. Such reality we also find in the Bible. Christian history is filled with it.

BBC report on SCOAN – based on “An unnamed woman’s testimony to another unnamed woman” – Faceless and nameless allegations offering nothing to track!

Let’s go back to that BBC report again. The report states: AHPN said it believed the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), which has UK headquarters in Southwark, south London, MAY BE one of those involved in such practices.” (Note the capitals) According to the above, they don’t even know if SCOAN is implicated. The mindtry MAY BE involved in the practice. So much for nothing. No wonder none of the leaders have been indicted or investigated by police. Look who the churches in Britain are dealing with in this controversy. A closer look at one of the accusers >>> “Emmanuel admitted he suspects he may have passed HIV onto his boyfriend” {http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16117269}. Talk about not changing your lifestyle and repenting from your sin of homosexuality and yet wanting God to heal you. Since in the Western world AIDS still attacks gays disproportionately, of course it is not a long jump to conclude that some in the gay community will have their radars open and their claws ready for tearing its prey with on this one. After all, ILGA and similar LGBT groups are increasing their efforts to bring down all things religious and if it could, destroy Christianity itself, the vanguard of so-called hostilities against them. Funny that many professed Christians are joining their efforts as the Devil pounces on. We cannot deny the fact that AIDS disproportionately affects gays in western countries. And we cannot pretend that there is not a homosexual agenda out there looking to destroy the church, or at least that sector of Christianity that disagrees with their lifestyle and calls it a sin. Have you been aware of the latest activities of the pro-gay movement in its attempt of dismantling established Christian traditions and values? We have one of the accusers, Emmanuel, in the Sky News report, who’s complaining that he might have given the virus to his boyfriend after, presumably, thinking that he was already healed. What??!! That sounds so preposterous and disingenuous. The gall of this man!! Instead of changing his sinful ways and turning back from the sin of homosexual sex, this malcontent has the audacity to point fingers at God and his servants for not having his miracle as was promised so that he could go ahead and keep on enjoying his sodomizing escapades. This is bad enough in itself, but what worries me more is that here we have a group of co-called Christians joining hands with these unrepentant sinners, even with a liberally slanted media, and following the Serpent’s tail without so much looking at the destructive path the filthy animal is leading it to.

Abuse Allegations against TB Joshua – Where Are The Proofs? – or at least News Reports?

Satan remains the accuser of the brethren, working through his agents to accuse God’s servants.

And about allegations of sex abuse coming from Nigeria, if this is also true, where are the news articles for these also? If a minister is suspected of having committed so serious a crime as sexual abuse, don’t you think the authorities would be on top of this as well as the respective news organizations? respectable news agencies like the Associated Press Especially when SCOAN has as one of its members the President of a nation? News agencies will stop at nothing to cover such juicy sensational stories. But that’s not what we have because it’s just that. Faceless and nameless allegations offering nothing to track. And one more thing about the BBC report. The two anonymous accusers don’t even make a connection with SCOAN. They only say that some pastor or some church had told victims not to take medication. This is the classic guilt by association ploy. I’m not saying the BBC is not credible. What I had problems with was the story of the people making the news. It did not add up and was kind of flaky. To their credit, the BBC journalist did write: “AHPN said it believed the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), which has UK headquarters in Southwark, south London, MAY BE one of those involved in such practices.” A good way of not putting yourself in the hook. Pretty slick! So don’t let my skepticism of people’s shaky stories stop you from posting relevant news articles, After all, you are compelled to save the world from awful Antichrists like TB Joshua. In that spirit, where are the articles pointing to SCOAN’s sexual abuse allegations? I’m sure with potential crimes like these, it would not be hard to find a juicy story or two, especially when you have hundreds, if not thousands of people out there who are being robbed and abused by Joshua’s ministry and are out to get him.

Why So Much Criticisms against TB Joshua’s Ministry?

Man undergoing deliverance as TB Joshua speaks in keeping with God’s power – The current Thorn in the flesh of cessationists

Heresy hunters have been at it for centuries. This is nothing new. Just look at Christian history. Mention Irvington or Kuhlman, for example, and all cessationists and anti-charismatics will come out of the woodwork with nooses and stakes. To cessationists and anti-charismatics, revelatory and other supernatural gifts are just not possible, so if you have them, that automatically qualifies you as a false prophet. Notice how they make much of the 1 John 4:1-3 test, but yet fail to heed its pure wisdom. On this score, TB Joshua passes the test since he acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh and is from God. But that’s not enough to the cessationists. To him, extraordinary displays of supernatural power and revelation makes you an antichrist. Such views operate from an a priori thinking, and it is therefore natural that the charismatically gifted should send them fear because it is a violation of their theological sensibilities.

*Cessationism: In Christian theology, is the view that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as tongues, prophecy and healing, ceased being practiced early on in Church history.

T.B. Joshua ‘delivers’ sleeping lawyer


A human rights lawyer, Mr Kwabla Senanu, has explained that his recent sleepiness and blurred speech in the Supreme Court were

Mr Kwabla Senanu,
Mr Kwabla Senanu,

caused by spiritual attack. Sharing his testimony at the Synagogue Church of All Nations, led by Prophet T. B. Joshua, in Lagos, Nigeria, Mr Senanu said he and his wife used to experience spiritual attacks for at least two years.

He said any time he came under the spell of attack, he could sleep at odd places under inexplicable circumstances, a situation which became a bother to him and his family for some time. Accompanied by his wife, Mrs Dora Senanu, and his two daughters, the 55-year-old lawyer showed a copy of the Daily Graphic in which the story about his courtroom experience was carried to the congregation to buttress his testimony.

The Daily Graphic publication of March 15, 2013 carried a story and a picture in which Mr Senanu was captured sleeping in the Supreme Court when he had gone there to represent some Ghanaian voters who felt they might be disenfranchised in the case in which Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the 2012 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), and two others are challenging the declaration of President John Dramani Mahama as the winner of the December 7, 2012 presidential election.

Mr Senanu, who has been married for 15 years and has practised law for 27 years, said when he got married and began his legal practice, there was no spiritual, psychological or physical problem in his life. “It all started when he took his wife to London to experience life abroad because of the importance Ghanaians attached to individuals (popularly called burgers) who had travelled abroad,” he said. “In London, while we were asleep, l often saw something like a hippopotamus raising our bed into the air. This strange phenomenon cascaded into a different dimension where l sleep at places at odd times,” he added.

Giving some instances when those strange occurrences had befallen him, Mr Senanu said at one time while he was in court, his speech became blurred, his body became weak and he dosed off suddenly when he was supposed to be on his feet defending his client. He said because of the strange experience of falling asleep suddenly at odd times, he had been involved in road crashes.

Mr Senanu and his wife expressed deep appreciation to God for their deliverance and said after they had been prayed for by Prophet Joshua, they slept like babies. He said the burden that had been taken off him by the spiritual deliverance was like a tsunami that had been dealt with by his enemies.

TESTIMONY TIME @ SCOAN LONDON – 13th JANUARY, 2013


TESTIMONY TIME @ SCOAN LONDON – 13th JANUARY, 2013

No one likes to wake up and detect an unwelcome visitor, a foreign object, an uninvited threat. This was the agitation and discomfort Joyce Durojaiye felt when one morning she woke up and discovered a lump on her neck, a painful swelling she was quite unaccustomed to and most unhappy to experience. This cyst on her thyroid which began to grow meant a surgery which would leave her scarred for life. But Joyce knew that what is impossible with man is truly possible with Christ Jesus. She believed in her heart for God’s intervention in the matter and when she attended the Anointing Water prayer line at SCOAN London, the awaited intervention came.

Hear her testimony in her own words:

“Emmanuel, I thank Jesus for what He has done in my life. My name is Joyce Durojaiye and I live in London. I just woke up one morning in July and saw a big cyst on my neck. It was very swollen at the time. I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t eat, talk well or even go to work. I went to see my GP and he sent me for a scan and they were going to operate to remove it. If they were to remove it, it would leave a large scar on my neck and I didn’t want the scar. So, I decided to come to The SCOAN prayer line at the next available time.”

Describing the extreme discomfort she had experienced, Joyce went on to explain: “It was really big, very big and they said they needed to remove it. I could touch it but it was very painful if I did.”

Explaining how she had heard of The SCOAN and sought for healing she said: “A friend of mine sent me a video clip to watch of SCOAN Lagos. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of TB Joshua yet. I’d been to many ministries and seen many big men of God but I’d never heard of T.B. Joshua. And even though God is doing so many wonderful miracles here, I was really surprised that I hadn’t heard of him all these years. I decided to watch some more clips and then went on the Emmanuel TV website and started watching Emmanuel TV and I got hooked on it. I found out there was a prayer line in the UK so I made inquiries and in September I attend the prayer line.”

set-freeJoyce narrated her experience on the day she received the prayer: “I was quite nervous at first as I did not know what to expect on that day but I knew that with faith, all things are possible. I’d seen many miracles. I’d seen people testify to the goodness of God through this medium of the Anointing Water. When the Anointing Water was ministered on me, I felt strange and started screaming uncontrollably. I screamed so loud and started shaking and then fell down and that was it. I screamed so loud I couldn’t even speak the following day! After the prayer, when I woke up the next day, the cyst was getting smaller and then the next day smaller and after a week it had vanished; it was all gone!”

Showing to the congregation her now smooth neck, she tapped the area which had been so swollen and tender before, joyfully explaining: “I wasn’t able to touch it like this before; it was so painful. Now, everything has gone back to normal, we thank God for that. I no longer need to have an operation and have a scar on my neck for life.”

Referring to the changes in other areas of her life since the prayer, she said: “It’s been fantastic. I was able to go to Nigeria for the first time in 20 years. God has opened doors. I have now started my Masters degree and things are going very well for me and my husband.”

Commenting on the Anointing Water, the medium Jesus had used to set her free, she stated: “This is a very powerful tool and is working for many people around the world; this is fire in a bottle basically. Anything that you hope for, if you use this Anointing Water in faith, and pray in the name of Jesus Christ, it will come to pass.”

Her advice for others, especially those attending the Anointing Water prayer line that day was simple and encouraging:   “Have faith! Even if you don’t see anything happen or even scream, God is working behind the scenes and He will do it for every one of us, in Jesus’ name.”

Suffering In Silence But Restored In Joy! – Scoan London


CLICK HERE! REMINDER REMINDER REMINDER – SCOAN London Next Prayer Line – 4th September,2011

 

Clifford had been suffering in silence for two years. Even the most simplest of tasks had become a painstaking chore. What for most people meant a short walk to the bus stop, to Clifford meant an laborious trek, often lasting hours. Lifting items that would be relatively easy for many, to Clifford was a backbreaking exercise. It was as if each item lifted weighed his tired sagging limbs down even more and that even a feather felt as heavy as a ton of bricks.

Mr Clifford Maduike, originally from Nigeria but residing in Margate, Kent UK, was an Aircraft Engineer by profession, but due to his physical condition, was no longer able to function in the field he was trained in. He found himself a victim of poor blood circulation, gout, joint pains, difficulty in walking.

Each step was a struggle, each breath a burden; pain was his constant companion. As a victim of such sicknesses, the future did indeed appear bleak. That was until he discovered Emmanuel TV and had the opportunity to attend the prayer line at The Synagogue Church Of All Nations in London and receive the Anointing Water sent by T.B. Joshua.

Having heard of the wonders God Almighty had been doing through the Anointing Water, Clifford was determined to make his way to London, even though the journey, already long, was lengthened intensely by his condition. After making two unsuccessful attempts to locate the church, he remained resolute and managed to register for the Prayer line service.

On the day of the service (Sunday August 7th 2011), when it was time, Clifford painfully made his way to the front to receive the Anointing Water sent by Prophet T. B. Joshua from the SCOAN HQ in Lagos. When asked what he believed Jesus would do for him, he cried out: “There is no other hope I have than in Jesus Christ – that today I will be very happy and go home!”

After the Anointing Water was ministered to him in the name of Jesus, to the delight of the gathered congregation, Clifford stood up with no hesitation and with long confident strides. walked to a chair at the other end of the auditorium, exclaiming “Thank You Jesus!”

Clifford received a miracle that would change the course of his life forever. He returned a week later to give his testimony. Hardly able to contain his excitement, he marched to the front and began to speak. Here is Clifford’s extraordinary testimony in his own words:

“The problem I had was bad circulation of blood, gout, I was unable to walk, I was fearing that I would soon become crippled….I also had shortness of breath, heart problems and my joint muscles were not functioning properly. For two years, my condition has been critical, threatening my place at work and my ability to carry out tasks.

Explaining the desperation of his situation, he exclaimed: “Except in Jesus there couldn’t have been any other way out!” Hospitals have tried. They told me they don’t know what to do any more.

Detailing how this problem had affected his life, he said: “To cross the road was difficult; I would have to wave two hands to stop the vehicles as they were passing.”

He continued: “When I was sprayed with the Anointing Water, internally, I felt power return to my weakened limbs, I had no fear that I would be staggering/ swaying around as I used to. I felt my breathing change as if I was breathing different type of air.”

“Last time when I came, it was as if I had walked all the way from Margate, I can walk freely now, I used to feel as if both of my legs had concrete blocks weighing them down, but now they have all gone. Before I used to take a lot of tablets, which I couldn’t do without, I had to take them daily to function, but for the past week I have not taken them as I discarded them during the service in the presence of everyone.”

Clifford who knew he had been given a new lease of life had these words of encouragement to say to the gathering:

“I advise everyone never to lose hope. Before I discovered here, all the way from Kent I had made two unsuccessful attempts, and even given wrong directions by people as I asked for directions and only made it on the third attempt. I was exhausted on that day and thought that I would not be able to make it back home, I thought that after the service I would sleep here, but to my confusion, I was so energised I returned home without any problems. Alleluia.”

“I advise everyone here that the Anointing Water is highly efficacious, very powerful, invisibly powerful. With our naked eyes we cannot exactly mention what it does, frankly speaking, but we experience the practical handiwork of God immediately it enters or is sprayed . As soon as it is sprayed it starts to work.”

He then walked confidently to the other side of the room demonstrating his perfect and complete healing. He joyously glorified the name of our risen Jesus Christ.

Clifford has continued to walk in the light of his testimony knowing that his healing was brought about by the very life of God.

STRANGE VOLCANIC ASH CLOUD – PROPHESIED BY TB JOSHUA


With the news of earthquakes, natural disasters and scientific phenomena’s dominating world news, it does seem to cross one’s mind that the earth and its climate are changing, and in times such as this that one considers the need for a prophet, a mouthpiece between God and His people. While people discuss, debate, argue and lament the frustrations and tragedy these disasters pose, careful observers would know that truly there is one such prophet.

T.B. Joshua..... I Say What I hear From God

One by one, the list of prophecies for the year, read out by Prophet TB Joshua, are coming to pass.
Since the beginning of this year, 2010, Prophet TB Joshua, of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos, Nigeria has already accurately predicted the coup d’état and capture of Niger’s President, Joe Stack’s suicidal plane crash in Austin, Texas, the devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, the huge Indian fire, the plane crash which killed Polish President, the earthquake in China and the sudden assassination of an Indian politician in a public meeting – not to mention the volcanic ash cloud that has caused an unprecedented closure of airspace.

On the list of prophecies that Prophet TB Joshua gave on Sunday 17th January, 2010, for the year, was the one concerning something that he had seen in the sky, causing negative effects. “I’m seeing in the sky something that will cause discussion amongst scientists and nations. But this thing will have negative effects.”

Two weeks later, on Sunday 31st January 2010, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied further about what he had seen in the sky calling it another natural disaster. “This other natural disaster – can we call it snow? And the thing will be falling like a whitish thing and it will stop the whole system. This will come from the hill. It’s a strange thing.”

A few months later, on Sunday 11th April 2010, TB Joshua specifically mentioned that on Thursday we should fast and pray for nations around the world, saying: “On Thursday, fast and pray for the nations, countries around the world. On Thursday. Take your time to do that. As you do that, the Lord would also do it for you in Jesus’ name. Amen.

VOLCANIC ASH CLOUD

On Thursday 15th April, 2010, the very day mentioned by Prophet TB Joshua, a massive cloud of volcanic ash following a volcanic eruption in Iceland drifted into European airspace, grounding all flights and leaving tens of thousands of passengers stranded across Europe affecting businesses worldwide.

It was on a Thursday the exact day of the week Prophet TB Joshua mentioned that we should pray and fast for nations around the world – Thursday 15th April 2010, that news hit world media that clouds of volcanic ash spewed into the air over the British Isles and Europe. A volcanic eruption which occurred in Iceland spewed black smoke and white steam into the air. The ash plume, which rose to between 20,000 feet and 36,000 feet lay above the Atlantic Ocean close to the flight paths for most routes from the U.S. east coast to Europe. The whole of British airspace was affected causing an unprecedented closure of airports and cancellation of flights. Reports state that the airline industry is losing an estimated $200 million a day and delays and cancellations are expected to last at least through the weekend.

The thing that Prophet TB Joshua saw in the sky in the vision God had shown him was a cloud of volcanic ash which truly caused negative effects in the whole of Europe and indeed worldwide. The volcanic ash cloud making much of northern Europe a no-fly zone has hurt the prices of airline stocks, paralyzed air cargo delivery and disrupted business and leisure travel. Aviation experts said it was the first time in living memory that an ash cloud had affected some of the most congested airspace in the world. According to a scientist in Iceland, the ejection of volcanic ash — and therefore disruptions in air travel — could continue for days or even weeks.

Heathrow The Busiest Airport In The Whole World… Now Standstill
A flight departure information screen shows cancellations at Luton Airport in Luton, England Thursday, April 15, 2010. Ash clouds from Iceland's spewing volcano halted air traffic across Europe on Thursday as authorities closed air spaces over Britain, Ireland and the Nordic countries. Tens of thousands of passengers were stranded in one of most disruptive events to hit air travel in years.

The volcano’s smoke cum ash poses a threat to aircraft because it can affect visibility, and microscopic debris can get sucked into airplane engines and cause them to shut down. Apart from the threat to aircraft and machinery, the United Nations health agency, World Health Organization, issued a warning of health risks related to the Icelandic volcano. A top professor of environmental health said the Icelandic volcano ash that has disrupted air travel poses a significant risk to people already suffering from respiratory ailments and can also lead to breathing problems.

The volcanic ash cloud which drifted into European airspace, on Thursday caused shutdowns and cancellations in many nations – countries around the world including: Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Russia and Spain. Air travel throughout Europe and around the world was still disrupted Saturday as thick clouds of ash from a volcano eruption in Iceland continued to drift across the continent. Officials expect air travel to be disrupted for several days.

The strange occurrence of the volcanic ash and the effects it caused fast became a topic for discussion among scientists. An investigative mission was carried out by scientists to analyze samples taken from the volcanic ash cloud sitting over Britain. A plane carrying the researchers flew right up to the cloud to test its contents. The data could reveal important information about the environmental impact of the eruption? The information gathered would enable experts to determine where the concentrations of abrasive particles and acidic gases might be dangerous.

The natural disaster was a strange thing just as the prophet had said – it was the first time that an ash cloud had affected some of the most congested airspace in the world. Observers in Scotland reported the smell of sulfur in the air with sightings of strange hazy ash clouds in the sky.

Something strange did indeed happen – and continues to happen as the cloud of volcanic ash shows no sign of abating. It is in times like this when the fragility of humanity and technology is clearly demonstrated that – we simply have to turn back to God and the Bible. As TB Joshua himself said a few weeks ago live on Emmanuel TV, “If I say ‘God says’ and it does not come to pass, this will serve to disapprove me, my commission, my mission”. But week by week, rather than his mission being disapproved, there is further evidence that God still speaks through His servants.
