If you plant in love, you will reap love because there is no giving in truth without receiving. What do you have? We are expected to give to God everything He has given us – I mean, all our substance – our time, strength, loyalty, money and every good thing the Lord has given us – and we shall receive, in return, an abundant blessing. Let us not love in words alone but also in deed and truth. When we love in deed, we are planting seeds that would return unto us a harvest of whatever love we expressed. God expects our best because He gives us His best (John 3:16). God has a Son. He planted Him in the earth to produce a family. Today, millions are born again through this Seed.
When we give, it makes us like unto God, who gives to all and receives from none. We should know that whatever blessing God has given us is meant to be replanted for a bigger harvest. We always reap the same kind of seed we plant, just as we always reap more than we plant:
Love for God’s sake and be loved.
Help for God’s sake and be helped.
Be kind for God’s sake and receive kindness.
Show mercy for God’s sake and receive mercy.
Give and receive more of whatever you give.
Sow and reap more of whatever you plant.
Job did not despair at his situation because though it looked like a misfortune, yet it was not. As Christians, our situation may look, may seem painful, yet it is not, because it is not unto death but to the glory of God. The situation you are facing may be to save your life or to prevent you from certain mishaps. It could be an accident or an implication – for example, a case of an innocent man who was caught in the company of his robber friends and was eventually executed. If a pain in the head had kept him back at home on that fateful day, little would he have known that the pain was to preserve him from being implicated.
Let me tell you a short story about my life. When I was younger, I was busy licking my thumb. My parents did everything to stop me from sucking my thumb without success – because the sucking of my thumb had already become my second nature. This kept me to myself. My thumb was my only friend, no one else was. Because of this, I was isolated by my mates. It was this isolation that preserved me for what I am today. This means, isolation can also preserve one. Apostle Paul said, ‘I am content with weakness for Christ’s sake’. Why should anyone be content with weakness for Christ’s sake? This is because His strength is made manifest in our weakness.
A good example of this is David’s encounter with Goliath. The weakness of David made manifest the strength of God. The weakness of David was what demonstrated the strength of God. If David had matched up strength to strength, weapon to weapon, stature to stature with Goliath, the glory of God would not be made manifest in his defeat of Goliath. In our weakness, the strength of God is made manifest. When we are weak, it is then that the strength of the hand that is protecting us would be made manifest in our victory.
We are all connected to one another in a way too fundamental to be explained away in a single sentence:
The mouth needs words, The ears need sounds, The eyes need a view, The feet need to go places.
Though the body of man is composed of many members, its workings are informed and influenced by one concern, in the spirit of one purpose. In other words, we need one another for our wholeness and completeness. I am not complete without you, neither are you without me. In essence, we depend on others to succeed in our respective callings. No one can succeed alone. Jesus knew this; that was why He had disciples.
We need good, inspired and informed people to make it in our respective callings. The medical doctor cannot say he does not need the soldier. What of when external forces invade the community? The soldier cannot say he does not need the medical doctor. What of when he is wounded in battle?
I am because you are, just as you are because I am. I mean you depend on me; I depend on you. The whole creation of the universe is based on this symbiotic essence. Just as the way God has designed the workings of the human society, so He has planned the way the different individuals can contribute to the well-being of their fellow brothers.
“If you make an excuse for sin, your sin will not be excused. What is an excuse? An excuse is a reason whether genuine or fake, given to explain or defend your wrongdoing. Today, we blame our situation on others. Man always shifts his blame to someone else or to circumstances beyond his control. Many blame their situation on family background. Some would say, “I am poor because everyone in my family is poor”. If you make an excuse for being poor, your poverty cannot be excused.
“Remember, you are responsible for what you give your attention to, so it is unnecessary to blame your situation on anyone. In the same way, you are responsible for your own actions. Today, it is common for people to blame their failures on their family background whereas they attribute their success to their personal effort. If you attribute your success to your personal effort, you should also accept the blame for your failure. If you complain that you are poor because every member of your family is poor, remember, you are responsible for your poverty by your own actions or inactions, that is, by what you do or what you fail to do.
“For example, I found myself in a family background that irritated me in those early years of my life. I knew I would be blamed for what I gave my attention to. I knew I could change the situation, so I took a different direction in order to achieve a different solution by recognising that victory obtained through Christ was a past tense victory. I mean, it is victory assured. Rather than despair and blame my situation on family background, I began to be proud of my situation in order to feel Christ’s victory over me. I became content with my situation, knowing that my situation was redeemable through Christ and that, that redemption was a past tense redemption. I mean, redemption assured. Then I began to take God at His Word in order to have His way.
“Remember, no one is too good or too bad to qualify for His grace. Remember also that it was possible for me to have sat somewhere and begin to make excuses for my situation but I never did. Whatever I am today is a product of the conviction that victory through Christ is victory indeed. The rest is history.”
Mention any great Biblical character and you would see how much pain he had to endure to come to a new level in life. It is the principle of life that for everything, there is a purpose. I mean, nothing happens for nothing. Unless you understand this principle, you are bound to despair or murmur when things seem to go contrary to your expectation.
If Hannah had been impatient over her inability to bear a child as expected, she would have sought other shortcuts to achieve her desire and history would have been changed. Today, many have changed the history of their lives through their inability to see beyond their immediate situation.
Those who see beyond their immediate situations do not despair in the face of seeming disappointment. Have you received a sack letter? Remember, many successful men today once had the same experience and were moved to a higher level in life thereby. Is it lateness in marriage or a delay in bearing a child? Is it inability to get a job in spite of your efforts and qualifications? Is it poverty in spite of your hard work and goodwill? Think well, as a Christian and you would see the purpose of God in your situation. I mean, behind your situation lies God’s promises for your life.
Testimonies about prostitution and homosexuality are on the rise at Prophet T.B. Joshua’s the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
While others are confessing to being promiscuous with multiple partners, some congregants are confessing to selling se*x and making love with people of the same sex. A reminiscent of Soddom and Gomorrah!
A video shared by Prophet T.B. Joshua’s official channel, Emmanuel TV, captures the shocking real-life experience of a young man who encountered life at its most hellish.
From the tender age of 12, Jonathan Denise’s already fractured life descended into utter chaos – as addictions to drugs, alcohol and cigarettes set in.
“God rescued me from a dark pit,” the then 23 year old Uruguayan who lives in Paraguay narrates how he the Nigerian prophet saved him after attending a conference with T.B. Joshua in 2017.
Denise explains how he sold his body to make money, prostituting himself with both men and women.
“I had an addition to alcohol, drugs and smoking. I also had a spirit of lust that pushed me to sleeping with both men and women” he narrates.
He says he would sell himself in order to earn some money but that through T.B. Joshua, God had now rescued him from a “dark pit” where he was Satan’s slave.
He claims that twice Satan had wanted to kill him but he survived because he believes God had other plans with his life.
“Through T.B. Joshua, I have now been delivered of all my burdens, problems and pain of the past.
“I can sleep very well without any nightmare or paid. I don’t have that urge to sleep with people anymore” he says, while urging people to open up to God so Jesus can save them as it is with him.
Watch Denise’s testimony below
Mast*ur*ation and watching po*rn since 15 years old
Another congregant, Samuel Augustine, says he has been saved by Prophet T.B. Joshua from the spirit of lust, mast*ur*bation and an addiction to watching po*no*graphic videos.
He claims to have been tormented by the spirit for 13 long years.
The 28-year old man from Borno State in Nigeria says he has been saved by Prophet T.B. Joshua just by watching Emmanuel TV.
“The man of God Prophet T.B Joshua gave a sermon on the secret of his life where he said we need to meditate on thanking God. He encouraged us to pray with these anointed words – ‘Oh Holy Spirit, take more of me and give me more of You – more of Your goodness, kindness, faithfulness, meekness, joy, peace, self-control and love. He said this in itself was healing and deliverance and we should meditate on it for five days and we shall see God’s transforming power!
“I took it to heart and begin to meditate on these words and give thanks to God. Glory be to God, I was delivered from this spirit that tormented me for 13 years! Indeed, there is power in the Word of God! I tried so many ways on my own in order to get free from that bad spirit but to no avail” he claims
We think it is high time we said something concerning the way Bisola Johnson speaks evil about T. B. Joshua and his church, SCOAN. We are going to say it without looking at faces. This is not a matter of being disrespectful, but a matter of the understanding of the leading of the Holy Spirit.
As you all know all fingers are not equal as such Bisola Johnson who chose to be a crook by defrauding foreign visitors of TB Joshua of which, Stephen Apomsem was duped of $2,000,00, see proof here and many others over $40,000 that, led to her in and out of SCOAN.
The Only Truth
The only truth this compulsive liar (Bisola Lair) told was 1. She was a follower of TB Joshua and 2. She was the only person who was doing the voice over at the SCOAN studio until the many atrocities she caused started emerging making her leave the SCOAN the second time.
How we drove her out?
Bisola returned to The SCOAN after been forgiven the second time and discovered we have taken her position doing the voice over, even better than what she had been doing. That’s when Bisola became so angry and finally left the SCOAN knowing very well she had no chance of getting back her position.
Pastor Ladi Thompson
After Bisola roamed the streets of Lagos for about a year teamed up to the ONLY Pastor who keeps the coffin in his alter and made a DVD called deception of the age, selling it for £5 each in the street of London. The money made from selling the DVD’s brought argument between Bisola Johnson and Ladi Thompson making them to split up. They forgot that anything that starts dubiously ends dubiously. Bisola then turned to visit prominent members of the SCOAN for financial assistance which they all decline, making her teaming up with Pastor Sunday Adelaja. Ladi Thompsom and his coffin in the alter
Readers, please take our word for it! none of what Bisola and TB Joshua counterpart, published on the internet are true. Just so you are aware Bisola and Adelaja have also started fighting over sales of their book published against TB Joshua.
The internet has become practically flooded with diverse views on TB Joshua and SCOAN especially; we intend to correct the critics of the ministry of TB Joshua and to let you know the truth from the many lies published on the internet especially by ex-follower Bisola Johnson who was not sincere during her stay with Prophet TB Joshua at the SCOAN.
I am not surprised about Bisola Johnson’s outbursts on recent rape allegations about TB Joshua which I find absurd. Clearly she must have finished spending the money she was paid by Ladi Thompson to lie against TB Joshua. God know has sponsored her this time to fabricate rape allegation this time.
It has become cold madness for some when you talk of TB Joshua, from group of people whom have once lived with him, individuals who hate him from what they might have read, or heard from others, as well as TB Joshua’s counterparts in the vineyard. If written words can kill, He, TB Joshua would have died from such words.
One question everyone would like to ask is that why TB Joshua is hated so much? One fact remains indisputable, his incredible journey surrounded in mystery and being written in history. Joshua is easily the most vilified pastor in Africa, yet by far the most sought after.
Even with the level of persecution, campaign of calumny and criticism against the life and ministry of T.B Joshua, The Man in the Synagogue (T.B Joshua), still remains one of the greatest human resources God has endowed this generation with; like his prophecies and healings broadcast live on emmanuel.tv every Sunday.
After many failed attempts, the person TB Joshua counterpart are now sponsoring to accuse the T.B. Joshua of rape is Bisola Johnson – the saboteur that infiltrated TB Joshua Church. The same lady who has admitted to having a mental problem and she had begged for forgiveness time without number that her accusations against T.B. Joshua in the past were false.
This time, she seems willing to be used again by these satanic agents to her own shame. She is under the influence of Legions of Demons. Please always remember Bisola in your Prayers. “She revealed that she was kept captive in SCOAN for 14 years and was raped for same 14 years by Prophet TB Joshua”
In a part of the video, she is seen saying: “My name is Bisola. I have acted as an enemy of God rather than a friend. And today, I am coming back as a prodigal daughter, so that God will forgive me; so that the Man of God will forgive me and the church, Synagogue, will forgive me…I have been rebellious. When I left the SCOAN, nobody asked me to leave. I am asking God (kneels) to forgive me.”
For many years Bisola who was once close to Prophet TB Joshua and those whom have never met him have rain so much slur on Prophet TB Joshua, and the most hilarious thing is that, Prophet TB Joshua has consistently thrived in the midst of his detractors is Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos-Nigeria. This man of God with the gift of accurate prophetic declaration, healing, deliverance and preaching of the Gospel, has stunned the world at large with series of prophetic messages that have turned out to be true and confirmed by the recipients.
The very fact that the popularity of this prophet has soared thanks to much criticism he has received from home and abroad, attests to his many trials. In the past decade, he has been bombarded by claims that he is a false prophet of God. In the midst of these, his continued calm and silence has endeared him to many. Let us all be aware that great men attract great rejection. That is what makes them strong!
Mrs. Patricia Amewugah, a Ghanaian, had the problem of constant bleeding and the doctors had been unable to do anything to help her beyond recommending the perpetual use of pads. To the glory of God, she received a word of prophecy last week as Prophet TB Joshua ministered last week at The SCOAN. The man of God had mentioned her case of bleeding, encouraging her to come out and confirm it in order to secure her healing. She encouraged people to believe that God will locate them, in the mighty name of Jesus.
