Eleven Children, One Wife, No Home Living Amidst Refuse And Rubbish For Over Three Years – TB Joshua


A stirring tale of glorious hope shining amidst the dark chasms of despair, of seperation and shame transfromed to unity and peace, of loneliness and homelessness replaced with life and love. Because God was involved…

Beyond the burdening, burgeoning bondage of homelessness, Mr Kefa Olatunji Taiwo had strayed slowly into the hazardous realms of hopelessness. At 60 years old, his family had scattered, any shred of dignity or self-worth left battered – his life in total tatters. Living in a bedraggled and dishevelled excuse for a shed, scantily assorted from stray aluminium and rotting wood, he had dwelt and dealt in the refuse grounds of Lagos, Nigeria for over three agonising years, surrounded by the repulsive stench of decay and debris, and the degrading stigma of a lunatic-like existence. Suicidal tendencies crept increasingly closer…

Living amidst the rubbish...

Living amidst the rubbish…

He suddenly halted before him, sensing something strange.“You are the one I am chasing.” Kefa looked up, astounded, dumbfounded. “Where is your family? Everybody is scattered in your home – and you are sleeping under the bridge, as an elderly man.” Extraodinary. His life-story unfurling uncannily from a man he had never encountered, a man he had never explained his predicament to. “You are getting old, an old man sleeping outside – and the family are scattered. Do you know where your problem comes from? This is what your mummy was telling you. The little money you had, you were going out – sometimes in the night you will not come home. You would take girlfriends. The little you had – you spent it just like that. This has destroyed you, destroyed your career.” How did he know? Whom had he told? “Something happened to you before this thing started. You met a mad woman – you never knew she’s a mad woman, and you slept with the woman. This is where the problem comes from. Today, when you sleep you see animals.” “Exactly, sir”

When Mr Taiwo walked dejectedly into The Synagogue, Church of All Nations in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday 30th August, unbeknown to him was the unfolding of a divine design to break the chains of poverty and restore the bonds of unity within his crises-fraught family. The prophecy took him by surprise. It was so sudden, so direct, so precise. Pastor TB Joshua narrated his life to him, a brief 30 seconds of breath-taking revelation, a concise uncovering. As he was led through the beautiful sanctuary, a flame of hope licked within his veins. Could it be a way out had actually come?

Just imagine, just consider... what do you have to give?

Just imagine, just consider… what do you have to give?

The following week he stood again before the vast SCOAN auditorium, clips of his ‘home’ broadcast to the world live on Emmanuel TV. Evangelists had accompanied Taiwo to establish the veracity of the prophecy. The crowd gasped, beholding a dank wasteland with pigs scavenging among the filth, dirty infected water up to the knees, slime and grime at every turn. And a human being lived there, slept there, ate there, amidst the clutter and litter of decomposing garbage and gunk. “I’m useless,” the former furniture maker told the evangelists. “I just have to go and hide myself here when it is night. This is a shameful place, but I have no alternative – that’s why I have to stay here, living here as a mad man,” he said, explaining how local hoodlums had burnt his only property to ashes, forcing homelessness upon him.

Accompanied by his estranged wife and 11 children, all suffering a similar fate, Mr Taiwo watched on in reflective silence. “I believe if this man is helped, he will not go back to his past life – because he has tasted suffering and hardship,” said TB Joshua, addressing the whole congregation. “And I know if blessing comes now, he will be able to maintain it. Sometimes God uses foolish things. Don’t be surprised that among these children may be the president of tomorrow. Remember the past history, remember the heroes – many of them were raised from this kind of humble background,” he explained. “The first step is to get accommodation for the family, so we can bring the family together and let them live as one. To liberate these children, we must give them scholarships. And those who want to learn a skill – we will give them that opportunity.” The pastor, famed for his unrivalled and unbridled philanthropic works, explained that if the youths were left to themselves, they would probably end up in armed robbery or prostitution out of frustrations irrationalising influence. “Give them N300,000 and five bags of rice.”

Tears of shock and joy escaped from beneficiaries and congregants alike. Never before had Kefa seen or touched such money. “I didn’t expect this. Thank you, sir,” he quibbled, words failing to form his heart-felt expressions of gratitude. “This is what we are born for, this is what we are to live for, this is what we are to die for,” smiled the prophet, ascribing all glory to God.

“Someone out there is waiting for you for a lifetime,” Joshua counselled the enthralled audience and viewers worldwide. “You cannot afford to fail them; failing them is failing God. Remember, God is speaking to you through them, saying: ‘They are fatherless, so that you can be their father.’ ‘They are lonely, so that you can be their companion.’ ‘They are in want, so that you can be their benefactor.’ ”

HOW TO DEAL WITH YOUR ENEMIES – TB JOSHUA


“Today, people look upon pain, wrong and injustice towards their neighbours unaffected. Your neighbour could be your enemy, friend, those who do not share the same faith with you. The Bible says love them all. But today – because they do not share the same faith with you, when you see them in a problem, you ignore them and look the other side. Because you are a Christian and they are not a Christian, whatever problem they have – you look the other side. No! You have to love your neighbour as yourself. If your conscience is alive to Christ, you would always be there for your neighbour. Love your neighbour as yourself.

The Bible says, ‘I will set a table before you in the presence of your enemies’. If your enemy is not there, the table will be useless. It’s good for your enemy to see what you become. What they thought you cannot become – it’s good for your enemy to see. They thought you cannot become this or that – it is better they see for themselves. That may change them and win their soul! A good example of what I am talking about is we here in the church today. If we begin to examine the conscience of everyone here and look at the past – at least 50% never thought they would come here. You had a different impression about T.B. Joshua. You stood in opposition towards T.B. Joshua in the past but today, you are alive to see that he is your friend, not your enemy. If you had died then, would you be able to see this? If I had died then, would I be here today?

What is the way out? Pray for your enemy! Prayer from your heart, not from your lips. If you choose the path of praying for your enemy, you will have a great relief. Because you are running to defeat your enemy, it has taken you to many places – spiritually, physically and financially. It has caused you sleepless nights – fear, anxiety, pressure. Every bad thing that happens to you -when you have nightmare – you attribute it to your enemy. The pain you are going through – it’s not your enemy that is going through it but you. Why can’t you ignore your enemy and move forward? Pray for them! You are the one going through the pain.

When you begin to chase your enemies, you will automatically forget the condition in which you are – because it’s not possible to look at two sides. I am going through pain that the enemy caused – and at the same time I am pursuing the enemy that caused it. I will ignore the pain. The pain will be there but how to take care of myself will be ignored. This is why our pain persists. The situation that you are supposed to go through within a week, you are on it for the past one year – because you ignore your condition and you are pursuing your enemies

The bigger your success, the bigger your enemies. Why are you wasting your time when you know it’s a normal life? You go through your trial according to your position and I will go through my trial according to my position. It is our position that attracts trials. Your position in life attracts persecution. If your position is big, it will attract big trials. Big blessing will attract big trials. You don’t want trials; you don’t want success in life. When people talk about you – ‘He is a foolish man; she is a foolish woman’ – you know it’s a recognition! What you are going through should not rule your life. What you are going through does not matter but what matters is whom you are.”

Remember, SHARING is CARING…

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.

MIRACLES FIFA U-17 world cup Manager Healed – TB JOSHUA


Author: Lucas Moore

MIRACLES ABOUND AMONGST US ON EARTH.

In this life that we live in, certain events and occurrences are yet to be completely appreciated and comprehended. For example, it is common knowledge that a woman is expected to carry her pregnancy for a period of 9 months, after which delivery of the baby is expected. Nevertheless, there are recorded cases of women who require as much as 1 to 3 years before the delivery of their baby. When the previous occurs, it is regarded as a model; on the contrary, when the latter occurs, it is regarded as out of the ordinary.

Uncommon events are sometimes regarded as miracles. Miracles and their realism have been debated among religious and philosophical scholars. While some believe and uphold its presence, others frown at the claims that it exists, describing it as a mere plot to coax people into believing the doctrine of a particular religion. Interestingly, there are several recorded happenings which suggest that miracles abound amongst us on earth and it is indeed a reality. One of such is the case of Mrs. Okorie Esther.

At 43, Mrs. Okorie Esther from Anambra state, East of Nigeria was diagnosed of Mal-united tibia, plateau fractures and fracture of the left ankle. Her mobility was aided by the use of a set of crutches, which she ensured was always her companion, in order to move around, albeit so much in serious pains and discomfort. She had been booked for a total knee replacement. The doctors had advised that she should reject the only option that could ensure that she would walk again as a normal person. The advice from the medical doctors was necessitated by the fact that, at 43, she was too young to undergo that kind of procedure, and this could result in total loss of the use of her legs and their functions.

In an attempt to recover the use of her legs, Mrs Okorie had resorted to herbalists, who milked her of her money, guaranteeing eventual success. When she realized that this was yielding no tangible result, she decided to turn to God for a miracle. With the numerous miraculous healings that she had read about and saw on Emmanuel TV, she decided that her next and final port of call was The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, where she believed that with a touch from Prophet TB Joshua, she would be declared free from her terrible condition.

Like they say, let us hear from the horse’s mouth:

“My name is Mrs. Okorie Esther, I am 43 years old, from Anambra state but I reside in Abuja. I was a volunteer manager for the recently concluded FIFA U-17 world cup, Nigeria 2009. What brought me to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations is Mal-united tibia, plateau fractures and fracture of the left ankle. I cannot walk alone with my legs so I have to use crutches wherever I want to go. Just before the games, I slipped and fractured the distal of my ankle, both the tibia and the fibular. Prior to this, two years ago, precisely January 13th, after I was involved in a car crash and I was diagnosed of fracture of the tibia, and this very fracture before the games had caused a mal-united fracture of my tibia and I have been referred to Artemis Health institute, India, for a total knee replacement but the doctors there have warned me that the procedure is not ideal for a person of my age. They said that I am too young for the procedure and that it could result in a total collapse of the functions of my legs.”

Continuing she said: “I have gone to many hospitals and the condition has not improved. I have even visited different herbalists, but all to no avail. I remembered that I once saw how people were healed on Emmanuel TV; I have also read testimonies of people that were healed by God through Prophet TB Joshua. I then decided that this was the final destination for me to receive my healing. I have come from Abuja because I believe that God can use the man of God TB Joshua to heal me”.

Interestingly, before praying for her, Prophet TB Joshua turned to the large number of worshippers inside the church auditorium and asked a question. He asked: “Do we have anyone here that believes that God cannot use him or her to perform miracle at all? You believe that God cannot use you, you believe that there is no miracle, you find it difficult to believe that there is miracle – stand up”.

“I find it hard to believe that there are miracles. I don’t believe it because I cannot understand how it works” screamed a young man, who jumped out of the crowd with enthusiasm. “My name is Obachide Ani, a Nigerian based in South Africa and although I have been a Christian for a very long time, I am yet to believe in miracles because I don’t understand how it happens. That is why I find it hard to believe it,” he said.

The following conversation ensued between Prophet TB Joshua and Mr. Ani:

Prophet TB Joshua: What do you understand is her problem?

Mr. Obachide Ani: It’s worse, man of God.

Prophet TB Joshua: Go and meet her and find out the situation she is in; so that I can now reveal God to you.

Mr. Obachide Ani: Ok, man of God.

Prophet TB Joshua: Anybody can be used to raise the dead but to maintain that grace of continuing doing it is where the problem lies. You go there now and touch the woman.

You first of all ask for forgiveness and say “Lord, your mercy and favour is all I need”, Prophet TB Joshua continued.

Repeat after me “Thank you lord. Your mercy and your favour is all I need. Forgive my sins Lord. Son of David, have mercy on me and commit yourself to the healing of this sister in Jesus Christ’s name”.

You can now bend down and touch the leg.

Mr Ani offered the prayer and touched her legs. Prophet TB Joshua then instructed Mr Ani to hold her right hand and lay his hand on her head, praying to God to heal her. After praying for her, Prophet TB Joshua told the woman, “Woman, it is not this man that is working, it’s God – rise up”!

Immediately, Mrs Okorie, whose only means of mobility was the crutches, stood up and walked by herself. “I am healed! Thank you Lord”, she screamed. Joy filled the air as Mrs. Okorie shouted at the top of her voice, thanking God for declaring freedom on her life and ending the pains and suffering she had endured.

This miracle in the life of Mrs. Okorie Esther confounded Mr. Obachide Ani and served as a proof to him that indeed miracles abound in the midst of men, and that God is the same today, tomorrow and forever; He never changes. God can use any medium to express Himself to man and He chooses whichever vessel He deems fit, sometimes going against the expectations and criteria of man.

Sometimes an opportunity is all that is needed… My diary and how I met TB Joshua.


The following is an account from my diary, Thursday 19th November 2009.

At about 9:00pm on 19th November 2009, after visiting my friend at Ijegun, I was driving to Mile 2 on the Ikotun – Ejigbo road when I suddenly observed that I had a flat tyre, just close to the Synagogue bus-stop, of the ever popular Synagogue Church of all Nations, the church headed by the controversial Prophet TB Joshua.

SYNAGOGUE CHURCH LAGOS

While trying to fix the tyre as quickly as possible so as to get home and observe my rest for the day in preparation for the next day’s job and activities, I observed that a large crowd had gathered at the gate of the church. They were shouting at the top of their voices and hailing the hero of the recently concluded FIFA U17 world cup in Nigeria, Sani Emmanuel and his team mate Ogenyi Onazi. I had previously read an article and also an interview granted by Sani Emmanuel, where he declared that he was an altar boy at the Synagogue, and so I was not completely surprised. As the shouting persisted, I decided to have a close look to know exactly what the crowd was cheering at.

On getting there, I noticed that the two Eaglets were posing with some persons who were gathered inside the beautiful water fountain outside the church entrance, for photograph shots. The crowd’s enthusiasm increased when the much sought after and highly criticized Prophet TB Joshua joined the gathering in the photo shots. On seeing the large crowd that was on the increase as the each second went by, the Prophet invited everyone of the crowd to come into the church premises and have an opportunity to see the boys live and direct.

Once inside the auditorium, the crowd continued to build up, as expectations grew. TB Joshua started interacting with the crowd and sampling the opinions of individuals concerning the performance of Sani Emmanuel and Ogenyi Onazi in the competition. Those who stood up to speak were full of praises for the duo for their contribution to the success of the team. They also prayed for both of them to get the nod of top European football clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea Fc, Arsenal Fc, etal, and get signed into their team.

Then came the moment that all were waiting patiently for; Sani Emmanuel and Ogenyi Onazi walked into the auditorium to join the ecstatic crowd. Dressed in the official playing kits of the National football teams of Nigeria, they both thanked the crowd for their support and prayers during the tournament, and asked for more prayers as they believe that there are still more hurdles to cross in the quest for the peak of their careers.

After the speech and greetings by the duo, Prophet TB Joshua thanked the crowd for their support and ordered that they all be provided with refreshment before they would leave the premises. Cold drinks were immediately served to each person in the auditorium. Just as we were all beginning to thank Prophet TB Joshua for his kind gestures, he dropped what was to be the biggest surprise of the day; announcing that every member of the crowd would get the sum of N500 before leaving the premises. The crowd went wild on hearing this and showered praises and prayers on the Prophet.

I went home with my N500, and the drink that I had. It was nice to have an opportunity to meet the duo just after they awed the world. And it was good to meet Prophet TB Joshua for the first time. I know that the money might not be a big deal for me, but I considered the people in the crowd, who perhaps had no idea where their next meal would come from, having the opportunity to get the sum of N500 just because they were fortunate enough to be there at the time.

BENNY HINN IN ATHENS WITH THE SYNAGOGUE, CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS


Pastor Benny Hinn, the morning after holding a conference at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Greece Branch, granted this interview on Emmanuel TV concerning his ministry and Prophet TB Joshua:

hinn-000105-med
I pray the Lord will keep using you and blessing you, dear Pastor Joshua and may the Lord anoint you BIG TIME in Jesus’ name. Amen.

EMMANUEL TV: We’re here in Athens, Greece, right by the rock where Paul preached to the people of Athens in Acts 17 and we have the wonderful privilege to have with us world renowned healing evangelist, Pastor Benny Hinn with us. It’s a great honour to have you on the program, sir. We’d like to welcome you to the program first of all.

BENNY HINN: Thank you very much. I’m Benny Hinn and I’m glad to be talking to you.

EMMANUEL TV: We see in the Bible that great men have great habits. We can see the habits that people like Daniel had, praying everyday facing Jerusalem, or the Psalmist, praying 7 times a day or in the morning and evening. Great men have great habits. What are some of the habits that you have that have helped you in your ministry, sir?

BENNY HINN: Well, I would say the first that the Lord developed in me is reading His Word daily. I feel it’s so important that the Scriptures be a part of our daily life rather than every so often. So, I do not read the Bible to preach it; I read the Bible so I can be fed personally. So, I would tell every Christian, make the Bible a part of your daily life. Don’t just put the Bible on a shelf. Let the Bible live in you and that is really the greatest secret I can talk about.

EMMANUEL TV: Yes, it’s true. Using the Word of God in our daily lives is the secret of faith. From the Bible we can see that anything close to Jesus receives attack.

BENNY HINN: Well, yes. Persecution is a part of our life. Jesus said that we will have it. All that live godly will suffer persecution, Paul wrote. So, that’s not something to be kind of wondering, why? Last night one of the pastors was asking me about how I handle this. I said, well, I’ll tell you honestly, I said, if I’m not persecuted, I think something is wrong. Because the devil does not fight those who are for him, he only fights those who are against him. If we oppose him, then we’ll be attacked. So, I rejoice by the fact that people attack and persecute someone like me. In fact, it’s one of those things I thank God for, believe it or not. I really do. So, persecution is a part of the Christian walk but what I said earlier, the Holy Spirit is the key to our survival and so, when we know Him as a person – this is the greatest thing I can tell you, precious people of God, when we know Him as a real person. I mean, your name is David, right? When I look at David, I don’t see an IT, I see a person. I talk to him and I listen to him. He listens to me. Personality is important. You’re not a spirit and you’re not a body. You’re more than that. You’re a person. Even though you are a spirit, even though I’m looking at a body – because that’s all we can see in the natural. Only God sees the real person on the inside but I’m talking to a person and I’m enjoying listening to what you have to ask me. Well, the same thing. The Holy Spirit is a person.

EMMANUEL TV: Joseph, on his journey to the throne in God’s promise for him, he encountered many trials, being unjustly imprisoned and such. What advice can you give to our viewers who, on their journey to God’s promise, are encountering trials of different kinds? What advice can you give to them?

BENNY HINN: Well, trials make us strong. Trials don’t weaken us if we know how to handle them. Look, I can tell you this, I have been through more trouble than I think most people alive. I’ve had enough trouble to live 10 lives. So, you talk about trials, you are talking to the right person. I’m still going through them. I’ll continue to go through them as long as I live and serve the Lord. How do you handle them? Okay, that’s a great question. Number one, you must see Jesus. If you don’t, you will lose. If Jesus is not our focus, if He’s not the One who we see daily, the Bible says, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. I’ve discovered one thing, that the person of Christ, the person of Jesus, His very presence, is the key to strength. Remember what it says in Isaiah. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. But then it says something amazing. It says, they shall mount up with wings as eagles. In other words, we become discerning to the winds of the Spirit. Like the eagle doesn’t take off, it doesn’t soar, until it discerns the current of the winds before it takes off. But then it says, they shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint. In other words, we’re going to catch up to where God wants us and then there’ll be fellowship with Him. So, there’s 4 keys to walking with the Lord – but the key, the real thing we have to do is seek Jesus. So, you’re telling me what do I do in my trials? Well, there’s only two things to do – run to the Lord or from the Lord. If you run away from Jesus, you’re in trouble. It’s foolish. If you run to Jesus, you become stronger because He is our place of safety. There is no place to go to. I mean, look, I’ve had trials. Believe me when I tell you, I’ve almost given up and I don’t want to scare anybody when I say something like this. If the Lord showed me the trials I would go through, I would have said, Lord thank You, let somebody else do this job. Because serving God is a battle. I mean, everything in this life is a war. We don’t realize that the anointing is for war – it’s not for picnics. When God anointed David, the first thing he did was fight Goliath and then God anoints him again when he became king in Hebron and he fights the house of Saul. Then God anoints him again and he fights the Jebusites. He was always fighting. Well, the early church is the same. The power came and they were opposed by the Pharisees. So, but it’s something that’s very important that I have discovered. We must come to know the person and I mean the substance, of Christ Jesus. We can’t just say, well, I know the Lord from a distance. That’s impossible. You cannot know him from a distance, you’ll not survive. Trials come to all of us but Jesus is our protection. He keeps us going. Yeah sure, there’ve been times I’ve said, Lord, I don’t know if I can make it. I don’t know if I can handle it. But I have found Him to be very strong, stronger than anything you can imagine. His strength is eternal. There is no limit to the Lord’s strength. So, whatever big, big massive trial or whatever you want to talk about, it’s nothing to God. We go there and bam – like that, everything’s fixed. So that’s the secret. Jesus is the secret to your strength – it’s that simple.

EMMANUEL TV: His strength is manifest in our weakness, just like Apostle Paul preached.

BENNY HINN: Brother, you have it right there.

EMMANUEL TV: It’s wonderful just to share with you, Benny, the sweet story of our Lord Jesus Christ.

BENNY HINN: Can we pray, of course. Dear Jesus, Lord I pray with David for the people watching from this holy location in Athens. Precious Lord, I pray that every one of them will be strengthened in You, every one of them will live for You, knowing Your Spirit’s presence. I pray that every one of them will be strong in the Lord and in Your mighty power. Precious Lord, I pray every one of them will stand before You on that day, hearing Your Words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant”. So, I pray, keep us all in Your loving care. Your Word says, “Now, unto Him that’s able to keep us from falling and present us to the throne with joy, blameless with joy, to the only wise God, be glory. Thank you for Your power and Your dear presence, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

BENNY HINN: Well, God bless you. I really enjoyed this and I must say, I did watch your network and I’m going to tell all of you precious saints support this great outreach to the world because without Christian television, we cannot plough the land, nor sow seed, nor reap the harvest. Christian television is God’s tool for evangelism today. So, keep it strong. Today, if Paul the ApostlePaul the Apostle was alive, who preached right here, if Paul was alive, he would use every means possible to get the Gospel to the nations. But Christian television cannot survive without your support. Through a Christian network, like Emmanuel, this network cannot be selling products like you see secular networks. They sell something to you every few minutes. We cannot do that. That’s why a Christian ministry is dependent on gifts and donations. It must come from your heart. And not only are you being used of God, remember something, your money is a weapon in the hands of the Lord against the devil. When you support Christian TV, God uses that money for the Gospel and the devil’s power is broken in people’s lives. Keep supporting this network. I’m telling you, I’ve watched it in California. I saw that dear man, that pastor in Africa who has this massive building, Pastor Joshua. And I was so amazed to see this amazing man of God. But you know,

bennyhinn
I would most certainly accept an invitation from Pastor Joshua to come to Nigeria.

the thing is this, it’s because of Christian television that he and others and myself are able to preach the Gospel to the world. The Gospel is the only answer to this world’s troubles. There’s no political solution. There’s no financial solution. It’s a spiritual solution and Jesus is the answer to the world’s needs and His Gospel must be preached. Paul said, “Necessity is laid upon me” and necessity is laid on us. Let me just finish by saying one thing – it cost God nothing to create the world. It cost Him nothing to create man. It cost Him everything to save one soul. Think about it. It cost Him nothing to create this beautiful world. It cost Him nothing to create man. I think God was having a marvellous time when He was creating man. It cost Him everything to save one life. It cost Him His own blood to save.

BENNY HINN: Keep watching Emmanuel TV and support Emmanuel TV. So, send in your donations and gifts to this great network andwatch what God will do for you. Keep watching Emmanuel TV and support Emmanuel TV and God bless all of you. Thank you.

BENNY HINN MESSAGE TO TB JOSHUA: Pastor, keep up the good work and preach the Gospel like you do so powerfully and teach God’s precious Word and I would love to someday meet you and fellowship with you. You know, we men of God need to come together and I would most certainly accept an invitation from Pastor Joshua to come to Nigeria. I’ve been to that country of course a number of times when I used to come preach for Benson Idahosa and I’ve preached for other great men of course and we’ve had our own crusade there in Lagos but with pleasure, of course. Thank you, thank you. I pray the Lord will keep using you and blessing you, dear Pastor Joshua and may the Lord anoint you BIG TIME in Jesus’ name. Amen.

A GREAT CHAMPION [T.B JOSHUA]


You can champion the cause for change. A champion is someone who helps others achieve their goals and realize their dreams – someone who is passionate about the success of others. A champion fights not his own battles but battles to win for others.

tbjforbanner
TB Joshua

A champion is an advocate and a defender; a leader and a deliverer who fights for the rights and honour of others and not for self or personal aggrandizement. Moses was such a man; he was raised by God not to deliver himself but to deliver Israel. It was David who stood up and killed the giant and brought the fear of Jehovah upon the philistines {1 Sam 17:20 – 58}. He also fought for the less privileged because he was a CHAMPION.

A man that carries all these attitudes of a champion does not do it on his own ground; it comes with the grace of God. There are many great champions in the world today, with various gifts of their own to make people successful in their future and career path.

There are some people like this that we can’t forget and even generations yet unborn will always talk about them.

Let me start with the life of T.B JOSHUA, ‘the man in the synagogue’, how he normally helps people spiritually, physically and emotionally with no call for alarm, all in the name of God. The sick get healed, widows are filled with joy and orphans are made to be happy without them thinking that there is nobody, but GOD the father of ALL that sees them through from the scratch dust to the top through the life of T.B JOSHUA.

TB Joshua is a man that gives people faith and believes that, there is hope and there is nothing that is impossible for God to do. No man succeeds alone; everybody needs good people around. No matter the situation you find yourself as a Christian, whether you have or not, you are destined to make a change in someone’s life. But every new season brings a new surprise; the more faithful and astute of us would call it fate, or inevitability. This season, it has been T.B JOSHUA.

The more you spend more on others and less for yourself i.e. when you bring joy to the faces of people that need what God has blessed you with – it’s a real privilege because we are blessed to bless others. Irrespective of your trade, position or place, we are charged to be a champion today.

God has brought us into that place of influence not to be served {Rom 13:1}. In other words, He wants us to be a champion, a role model and a deliverer. So, let us be passionate about the welfare, success and prosperity of others; fight for their rights; be their advocate and defender – champion their cause, let people see you as a favour. Know that you can be the catalyst for a change. Emulate great champions like T.B JOSHUA. You can inspire a change. Remember, it only takes a spark to light up a forest. God want you to be a champion for your world.

Revelations have emerged how T.B. Joshua warned the Golden Eaglets of the tough times awaiting them in the hands of the Germans over a week prior to their opening encounter…

Fresh from a training stint in Qatar’s ‘Aspire Academy’, Nigeria’s National U17 Team, The Golden Eaglets, first point of call upon arriving in Nigeria was The famous Synagogue, Church Of All Nations in Lagos, to meet with Prophet T.B. Joshua. Arriving on Friday 16th October 2009, the very night of Ghana’s historic World Cup victory over Brazil, the team came to seek the face of God in lieu of the FIFA Under 17 World Cup, which officially kicked off yesterday.

Known for his precise prophetic foresight, which has come to the limelight of late proceeding Joshua’s purported prophetic insight and instructions to Black Satellites coach, Sellas Tetteh, an official of the team has testified that the few words spoken by Joshua to the team saw fulfilment in their opening match with Germany, an exciting encounter which saw the Eaglets surmount a 3-0 deficit to draw 3-3. Speaking under the guise of anonymity, the official said, “T.B. Joshua had told us that the beginning would be very rough, further adding that if the team collectively ran to God, He would see them through,” words that clearly found reality in the tough opening encounter.

T.B. Joshua's boys are members of the Eaglets side, having plied their trade in 'My People FC', Joshua's football academy set up to assist talented young footballers coming from humble backgrounds.

Germany raced to a 3-0 lead within 46 minutes of the match and looked set for a comfortable and humiliating victory, easily outclassing and outpacing the nervy Eaglets. However, the tables miraculously turned in a 7 minute stint of scoring mayhem with Stanley Okoro, Kenneth Omeruo and Edafe Egbedi all netting to recover the deficit and earn a draw for the hosts.

Reports also revealed that two of T.B. Joshua’s boys are members of the Eaglets side, having plied their trade in ‘My People FC’, Joshua’s football academy set up to assist talented young footballers coming from humble backgrounds.

Great Britain needs TB Joshua NOW!


It is without a doubt that some of the greatest gatherings have been attended by Christian adherents; Figures shows that Millions of people have gathered at several places in different parts of the world to attend crusades, This figures is archived every Sunday since Emmnuel.tv started broadcasting the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of TB Joshua

TB Joshua is sought after by the British for their salvation..........
TB Joshua is sought after by the British for their salvation..........

Amidst the ponderous saga of some “holier-than-thou” men of God who tax their congregations to build schools, colleges and universities to which their (members) cannot afford to send their children due to exorbitant fees, Joshua has awarded scholarship to thousands of his members and even beyond. His consistent life style has already given proof of his individuality as a true servant of God. And the manifest hand of God that radiates through his ministration has drawn many non Christians and lost sheep back to Jesus Christ.

A close look at the circumstances of his life shows that Prophet Joshua was born with the natural requirements for a calling of an ideal tendency. In recent times, I have heard not less than three pastors, hitherto doubtful of Joshua’s spiritual credentials, now testifying openly that TB is a true servant of God. One of them even confessed at a meeting recently, in which you were in attendance, as a testimony to his rising profile, Joshua, has a large flock of Christian believers in the world: Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America and his mighty anointing power makes headline news in media houses around the world. Again, The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Lagos headquarters, has played host to many important dignitaries from across the world. The tremendous growth in population of his ministry apparently accounts for the equally large viewership of his television network program known as “Emmanuel TV” mostly from the United

Kingdom. As a hard working, humble and dedicated spiritual leader who can shrink up the

sundering seas, level intruding mountains, bridge gulfs and put a lamp in every tunnel; TB Joshua is undoubtedly a spiritual phenomenon whose corpus requires a large canvas. It is incontestable that the spiritual seriousness of the present times, so conspicuous in many Christians, is due in no small part to evangelical Christianity, which has influenced the beliefs of so large a segment of the world populace. For, much as practical evangelism has nurtured the need for a religious faith in our society, it has inadvertently made allowance for the major ideological developments of the age.

GREAT BRITAIN is in spiritual turmoil and urgently needs a man of God like TB Joshua to save her people from struggle to survive in a climate of increasing social instability and moral family decay. Political correctness in Britain has silenced the voice of conscience and the spiritual condition of the nation is at an all time low.

Look at what drink has done to them
Look at what drink has done to them

Violence and other social problem are rising. Politicians and those in authority are looking for a solution, but they cannot find an answer for they do not know where to look.

For decades Great Britain has been drifting further away from the Biblical standards that were once the bedrock of her values and good standing in the world.

With the flood of immorality and sin that has overwhelmed the United Kingdom there has also been an alarming decline in the social and moral welfare of the nation. This is due in no small part to compromise of doctrinal Truth by the church and a general abandonment of righteousness. The social conscience has become conditioned to immorality and many laws have been rewritten to accommodate the lowered standards.

In contrast God’s standards of holiness and moral purity never change just as God never changes and therefore the moral laws of God’s Kingdom will never be adjusted or re-written. Likewise the foundational standards of the true church should never change.

In the light of our present situation the British Believers can no longer continue to fail this nation…

Watch them struggle to get home under the influence of alcohol
Watch them struggle to get home under the influence of alcohol

We are therefore calling upon the Believers in Great Britain to take a stand for righteousness. God expects His people to be righteous and obey all of His commands. ‘For the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit’ (Romans 14:17)

It is time to return to the old paths. It is time to return to righteousness and to once again lift up the banner of Truth in this land.

How soon do you want TB Joshua in the United Kingdom?

U-20 World Cup Revelation: T. B. Joshua Assisted Us —Ghana Coach


Revelations on how Nigeria’s Prophet T. B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations assisted the Ghana Under 20 team to win the World Cup on Friday in Egypt have emerged.

Revealing this on Ghana television monitored on Emmanuel TV, Victorious Vision when the team arrived the Accra International Stadium on Saturday, the Ghanaian coach, Sellas Tetteh thanked Prophet T. B. Joshua for assisting the team with prayers to win the cup.

When asked how the man in the Synagogue assisted the Black Satellites, Tetteh said: “Prophet T.B. Joshua assisted us. Joshua was with us on the job and he talked with all the players. He was an inspiration to all of us. He was speaking with us all the time during our stay in Egypt.”

P.M.Sports gathered that before the highly explosive match that saw a Ghanaian player being sent off the pitch in the 36th minute, the Ghanaian coach phoned Joshua to seek his prayers for his team to beat the highly rated Brazilians.

Prophet Joshua confirmed to P.M.News that coach Tetteh actually phoned him in the morning of the final to seek prayers for the

success of his team. He (Joshua) said he told him (Tetteh) that his team would carry the day if they obeyed God’s instructions concerning the match.

The instructions according to the man in the Synagogue is that the Ghanaian team should defend their goal post very well and limit their attacks on the Brazilians.

“I told the coach that there will be no goals’ in the first and second halves of the match and that they would go for extra time which will also not produce any goal. I told him (Tetteh) that the match will be decided by penalties and that the coach should ensure that Andre Ayew (No. 10) takes the first penalty. “I said if they do that victory is theirs,” Joshua toldP.M.Sports.

It was also gathered that Joshua’s prediction that the Ghanaian team will have problem in the first half came to pass when a player of the team was sent off the pitch for foul play.

The Synagogue pastor told P.M.Sports further that the Ghanaian President, Prof. Attah Mills phoned him to seek success for his team before the match. “I told him (Mills) that his team would win if they follow divine instruction. They did and they won the cup to the glory of Africa.

“You know when they sent off that Ghanaian player from the pitch, the Ghanaian coach phoned me and I t old him not to worry. I asked him to tell his boys to defend well and that no goal will be scored during that half and no goal was scored,” he added.

During the penalties, Joshua it was gathered, phoned coach Tetteh, who did not want Ayew to start the penalty shootout, to allow Ayew take the first penalty to seal victory for the team.

After the victory, the Ghanaian coach was full of praises for Prophet T. B. Joshua for standing by his team. When asked if the Super Eagles of Nigeria will qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa next year, Prophet Joshua has this to say: “Super Eagles will qualify if they play the game as if it all depends on thIS.

SCATTERED! Eleven Children, One Wife, No Home Living Amidst Refuse And Rubbish For Over Three Years


A stirring tale of glorious hope shining amidst the dark chasms of despair, of seperation and shame transfromed to unity and peace, of loneliness and homelessness replaced with life and love. Because God was involved…

Beyond the burdening, burgeoning bondage of homelessness, Mr Kefa Olatunji Taiwo had strayed slowly into the hazardous realms of hopelessness. At 60 years old, his family had scattered, any shred of dignity or self-worth left battered – his life in total tatters. Living in a bedraggled and dishevelled excuse for a shed, scantily assorted from stray aluminium and rotting wood, he had dwelt and dealt in the refuse grounds of Lagos, Nigeria for over three agonising years, surrounded by the repulsive stench of decay and debris, and the degrading stigma of a lunatic-like existence. Suicidal tendencies crept increasingly closer…

Living amidst the rubbish...

Living amidst the rubbish…

He suddenly halted before him, sensing something strange.“You are the one I am chasing.” Kefa looked up, astounded, dumbfounded. “Where is your family? Everybody is scattered in your home – and you are sleeping under the bridge, as an elderly man.” Extraodinary. His life-story unfurling uncannily from a man he had never encountered, a man he had never explained his predicament to. “You are getting old, an old man sleeping outside – and the family are scattered. Do you know where your problem comes from? This is what your mummy was telling you. The little money you had, you were going out – sometimes in the night you will not come home. You would take girlfriends. The little you had – you spent it just like that. This has destroyed you, destroyed your career.” How did he know? Whom had he told? “Something happened to you before this thing started. You met a mad woman – you never knew she’s a mad woman, and you slept with the woman. This is where the problem comes from. Today, when you sleep you see animals.” “Exactly, sir”

When Mr Taiwo walked dejectedly into The Synagogue, Church of All Nations in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday 30th August, unbeknown to him was the unfolding of a divine design to break the chains of poverty and restore the bonds of unity within his crises-fraught family. The prophecy took him by surprise. It was so sudden, so direct, so precise. Pastor TB Joshua narrated his life to him, a brief 30 seconds of breath-taking revelation, a concise uncovering. As he was led through the beautiful sanctuary, a flame of hope licked within his veins. Could it be a way out had actually come?

Just imagine, just consider... what do you have to give?

Just imagine, just consider… what do you have to give?

The following week he stood again before the vast SCOAN auditorium, clips of his ‘home’ broadcast to the world live on Emmanuel TV. Evangelists had accompanied Taiwo to establish the veracity of the prophecy. The crowd gasped, beholding a dank wasteland with pigs scavenging among the filth, dirty infected water up to the knees, slime and grime at every turn. And a human being lived there, slept there, ate there, amidst the clutter and litter of decomposing garbage and gunk. “I’m useless,” the former furniture maker told the evangelists. “I just have to go and hide myself here when it is night. This is a shameful place, but I have no alternative – that’s why I have to stay here, living here as a mad man,” he said, explaining how local hoodlums had burnt his only property to ashes, forcing homelessness upon him.

Accompanied by his estranged wife and 11 children, all suffering a similar fate, Mr Taiwo watched on in reflective silence. “I believe if this man is helped, he will not go back to his past life – because he has tasted suffering and hardship,” said TB Joshua, addressing the whole congregation. “And I know if blessing comes now, he will be able to maintain it. Sometimes God uses foolish things. Don’t be surprised that among these children may be the president of tomorrow. Remember the past history, remember the heroes – many of them were raised from this kind of humble background,” he explained. “The first step is to get accommodation for the family, so we can bring the family together and let them live as one. To liberate these children, we must give them scholarships. And those who want to learn a skill – we will give them that opportunity.” The pastor, famed for his unrivalled and unbridled philanthropic works, explained that if the youths were left to themselves, they would probably end up in armed robbery or prostitution out of frustrations irrationalising influence. “Give them N300,000 and five bags of rice.”

Tears of shock and joy escaped from beneficiaries and congregants alike. Never before had Kefa seen or touched such money. “I didn’t expect this. Thank you, sir,” he quibbled, words failing to form his heart-felt expressions of gratitude. “This is what we are born for, this is what we are to live for, this is what we are to die for,” smiled the prophet, ascribing all glory to God.

“Someone out there is waiting for you for a lifetime,” Joshua counselled the enthralled audience and viewers worldwide. “You cannot afford to fail them; failing them is failing God. Remember, God is speaking to you through them, saying: ‘They are fatherless, so that you can be their father.’ ‘They are lonely, so that you can be their companion.’ ‘They are in want, so that you can be their benefactor.’ ”

THE STORY ACCORDING TO MR. MICHAEL LATHBRIDGE WHAT CRIME HAS T.B JOSHUA COMMITED KAYODE PETER


From an exclusive interview granted to modernghana.com based on an earlier published article“‘HOW T.B. JOSHUA TOOK MY WIFE’ – Pastor Peter Kayode tells it all” concerning Pastor T. B. Joshua of the Church of All Nations.

side bannerAccording to Mr. Lathbridge, pastor Kayode and his wife joined the church due to fruit of the womb problem. They met with Pastor T. B. Joshua and just like the woman with the issue of blood for 12 years in Mat 9:20-22, and the man by the pool of Bethesda in John 5:1-18, and many others had to wait for their healing, Kayode Peter had to wait for his too, for healing process to begin.

As such, this whole confusion started right after he became a member of the church. At this time, the church had no branch in Ghana, Accra and members had to travel all the way to Nigeria by road to attend church service. It came to light that, members were rubbed on their way is this caused fear among members.

Eventually, the church decided to have a branch here in Ghana to save members the trouble of travelling to Nigeria and somewhere in 1997, after Ghana for Christ Crusade the church was ready for use.

Pastor Kayode was asked to come down and help in the running of the church. Eventually as the membership increased, more hands were sent down to help pastor Kayode. All the people sent down never stayed long because Kayode always had something bad to say about the people brought in and had to return to Nigeria.

He preferred to work with Ghanaians only Who don’t have direct access to TB Joshua to report to him, should he do anything so that, all his dealings were saved right here and by this time he had become the head of the church in Ghana.

According to Mr. Lathbridge, Kayode was eventually asked to return to Nigeria because it was time for his healing but he refused and his wife was sent down to him. Within three months of her stay in Ghana, she became pregnant hence she was stopped from all duties. Birds of the same furthers they said flocks together, the wife whom we all call Sister Lola in pursue of being good she was planning wickedness against her fellow woman and that’s where she tripped over a wooden plank laid over a drainage and fell and suffered miscarriage after Kayode peddled false allegations against Pastor T. B. Joshua. Pastor Kayode made away with money belonging to the church to establish his own and as if this wasn’t enough, gifts of land, money and vehicles including the Audi salon car he uses all belonging to the church, Kayode took everything away with him. Pastor T. B. Joshua never asked him to return anything to the church.

Kayode also mentioned that, pastor T.B Joshua engage the services of military personnel in the running of the church but according to Mr. Lathbridge, the military personnel are all membersthumb.aspx of the church he came forward to suggest the overseer the need to have security at the church. This became important due the high incident of fraudulent activities some of their foreign members suffered when they visit the headquarters from fraudsters who pretended to be workers of the Church collecting their contact details to request for money,. Also, some member came to the church and leave behind dead babies and other nasty activities.

This is all the truth and all that transpired between pastor Kayode and the Church of All Nations.

What was carried in Ghanaian journal issue were all fabricated by Kayode to discredit Pastor T. B. Joshua and Church of All Nations.

Kayode please tell the truth and shame the devil

Everything Big Starts Little


In his own words, Prophet TB Joshua describes his early years, and the belief that inspired him to do what no one has ever done and go where no one has ever gone in order to achieve what no one has ever achieved. It is an inspirational, challenging and reflective read, which clearly illustrates the principle of life that there is a time for everything and life is in stages… What time are you in?

sidepicture_tb“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 – so I took a different direction in order to achieve a different solution.

Before this time, I was a member of the Anglican Church and participated actively in many church activities. On three different occasions, I was appointed the chairman of Children’s Harvest/ Thanksgiving ceremony. During my elementary education at St. Stephen Anglican Primary School, Agbalaku, Arigidi, I was leader of the student Christian fellowship.

I taught my colleagues the Scriptures without formal Bible training. In my dreams, I was always taught the Scriptures; that gave me an edge over other student colleagues, even my teacher. I was the smallest in the class but led the prayer during the school devotions. My teacher, Mrs Margaret Tolani Adejumo, and my colleagues usually called me ‘small pastor’.

I recognised early enough that victory obtained through Christ was a time past 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 is redeemable through Christ and that the redemption was a time-past one. I mean, redemption assured. Then I began to take God at His Word in order to have His way. Nobody is too good or too bad to qualify for His grace.

Remember, it was possible for me to sit somewhere and begin to make excuses for my situation. I never did.

Whatever I am today is a product of that conviction that victory through Christ is victory indeed. The rest is history.

Today, many people blame their situation on family background. Some would say, “I am poor because everyone in my family is poor.” If you make excuses 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.

Today, it is common for people to blame their failure 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. When we make excuses for our wrongdoing, such misdeeds would not be excused.

God has a time for everything: A time to grow, a time to face realities of life, a time to overcome and a time to show the proceeds of victory. Ecclesiastes 3:1. I want to let you know that this record is not in anyway intended to show off – I mean, it is not a way of saying, “I have arrived”, but my own way of glorifying God for what He is doing in our lives. It is my own way of giving testimony to the goodness of God in my life. First, to show my total dependence on God and second, to encourage the weak that there is hope; Jesus is the hope.

Life is a warfare, and in a war there are many battles to be won.

Each time God leads us through a battle, it is in our own interest to testify to His goodness, as a way of thanksgiving for not allowing our adversaries to triumph over us. If God had not overcome for us, there would be no need to show this record, just as there would be no need for this story.”
