Opinion: Let there be peace in Venezuela


My intention for this article is not to take side with either party in this conflict nor to condemn anyone, but out of love and a sense of concern for a peaceful Venezuela I wrote this.

We all know that even Prophet T.B. Joshua has exempted himself from the public eyes due to his deep concern for a peaceful world. The Prophet, whom by the nature of his love and compassion for humanity, is presently fasting and Praying for all of us, including the nation and citizens of Venezuela. The Prophet is hopeful for a crisis-free world, where everyone will leave in peace and harmony together with their neighbours.

To the leadership in Venezuela, shave your ego and give yourself to the spirit of good counsel!

The devil, whom in his deceptive ways, is out there massaging your ego and encouraging violence in your nation. Remember that you are there to serve the people and not yourself. Don’t allow the devil to use you to cause killing, stealing and destruction in your country.

Don’t be used to destroy your nation’s democracy. No nation or leadership is perfect. Even the so-called advanced democracies out there, are still struggling amongst themselves.

Satan is after the destiny of your nation. Why not ask yourself, why the so much interest in Venezuela.

Beware of those that seem to have taken a side. Any person that claims to love you will be calling for peace and understanding and not encouraging division amongst you people.

We should not allow outsiders to use our sense of greed and desperation for power to cause us to destroy our country. Because in all of this, it is the Venezuela people who will suffer and not those people outside there that seems to be instigating division amongst you.

Be wise and learn from history!

Why not learn from the Libya crisis? Once a nation but now in a state of anarchy. Those who took a side then, are they there in Libya now to feel the pain and disorderliness in that country. No!

Learn to put the safety of your people first before yourself ambition. No matter how good your intentions may be, no single blood of a Venezuelan should drop due to your role in this issue. Because one day we all will leave to face the creator of the universe to give an account on the role we played in this present crisis in Venezuela.

There is nothing wrong to be ambitious, but it will be more rewarding if we can accept to sacrifice our ambition on the altar of peace…. READ MORE

Video: How TB Joshua Prophesied About Venezuela Coup In 2016


International media has been agog with the news of the ‘coup attempt’ and intense political volatility that has engulfed the South American nation of Venezuela in recent days.

On Wednesday 23rdJanuary 2019, Venezuela’s National Assembly leader, Juan Guaidó, declared himself as the country’s interim leader, a move which current leader Nicolás Maduro angrily declared “a coup”.

International battle lines were quickly drawn as US President Donald Trump quickly recognised Mr Guaidó as the country’s authentic head of state alongside several other South American nations, as well as Canada and the UK.

In response, Mr Maduro immediately cut diplomatic ties with America for aiding the ‘coup’. He still maintains military support, as well as enjoying the backing of nations such as Russia, China and Mexico.

However, in faraway Nigeria, Prophet T.B. Joshua had forewarned of the impending coup attempt and its attendant democratic ramifications as far back as May 2016.

In a video released to Emmanuel TV’s YouTube Channel, the Nigerian cleric is heard urging his congregants to pray for Venezuela as he is seeing a “coup” which would affect the “democratic system of government”.

“Venezuela… I’m seeing a coup that will throw away the democratic system of government,” Joshua is heard prophesying in the video dated Sunday May 15th 2016, adding that he was “praying that God should avert it”.

The clip ended with Joshua imploring congregants to remember the nation of Venezuela in their prayers due to the looming timing of the events he prophesied.

Prophet T.B. Joshua is very well known in Latin America, famed for his ‘miracle crusades’ in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay and Dominican Republic which attracted hundreds of thousands attendees.

Part 2: A DIVIDED WORLD AND THE WAY-OUT


God is the Owner of the Universe

The predicament and division in our world today confirm the human inability to properly handle its own affair without the creator of the universe.

Regardless of the fact that we claim we are civilized and made up of refined minds. I ask:

What is the rationale behind a human being, seeing one of our kind as not worthy of is love and compassion?

What is the rationale behind a foreign government going to format trouble in another nation? Leading to killing, stealing and destruction and they will be so happy and comfortable about it.

What is the rationale behind you just hating someone and then going to any leant just to see the downfall of that person, simply because you are not in tune with the person?

What is the rationale behind powerful nations spending billions and trillions of dollars doing intensive research to manufacture weapons of man’s destruction just to kill their fellow human being?

If God should open our eyes to see what our government are spending our taxpayer’s money on, one will wonder if mankind is simply working and planning towards his own extinction.

All these are evidence of a dysfunctional world.

What is the answer to the world healing?

God is the answer!

It is time for the world to go back to the manufacturer – the creator of the universe.

The human race is malfunctioning because we have turned our back against the creator. Nothing can function well if it disconnected from its source. Many in the world has disconnected from God – the source of humanity and we have to connect back for the sake of the healing of our spirit and soul.

What will make a human, created in grace and dignity – in the image and likeness of God, bring himself so low in an intimate sexual relationship with a lower animal like a dog? That is a sign of a malfunctioning product. We all know what is going on in the world. Are we talking about the homosexuals and the transgenders? These are proof of a dysfunctional world. And these are few of many reasons why the world needs to embrace the Man in the Synagogue.

Prophet T.B. Joshua is an embodiment of God’s grace. The ministry of the SCOAN has continued to demonstrate to the world that there is a redemptive power in the Name of Jesus Christ.

This present generation is so fortunate to have a Prophet, in the person of T.B. Joshua that has direct access to God.  A Prophet that can see what is going on in the invisible and bring it out to the visible world.

When we ignore God and His Prophet, we are simply allowing our self to become victims of the devices of Satan. The truth is that the devil, in his canny ways is the force behind the world present predicament.

Satan has continued to use his demonic influences to bring strives amongst the human race. For the reason that he is invisible, and you don’t believe in his existence does not mean he is not their going about his evil enterprise.

This generation still has the chance to do the right thing. We still have the chance to embrace God. The Prophet is still present in our midst. Pride will lead us to no good except destruction. The scripture said we should test all spirit, while not test the God in the Synagogue.

Choose this day whom to embrace. Let’s embrace redemption and not curse. Let’s embrace peace and not strive. And let’s embrace love and not hate. There is still hope and Jesus is the only hope for the total freedom of the human race. REMAIN BLESSED IN JESUS’ NAME! AMEN.

A DIVIDED WORLD AND THE WAY-OUT


God is the Owner of the Universe

Despite the dynamic nature of the human race, with innovative science, technology and modern discovering that has enhanced our contemporary civilization, coupled with the inspiring and consistent message of love and exemplary lifestyle of tolerance that Prophet T.B. Joshua’s ministry has continued to show to the world in both words and deeds, our contemporary world still appears to be more divided as ever before.

One would have thought that the 21st-century world would be a world of civility and tolerance. Where the human race would have learned from the past mistakes to accommodate themselves better, irrespective of differences. But this present generations of the so-called refined minds are totally the mirror of the opposite.

It seems there is always something new and controversial that bring division among us. Either by race, tribe, religion, beliefs, political ideology or philosophy. We always find a means to bring strives amongst ourselves. This ugly phenomenon is so heartbreaker that it seems there is no end to it. And the social news media has become a tool to exploit and promote this sharp division amongst us.

Our present world is filled with so much hate and condemnation that one is afraid to preach genuine love. Even one has to carefully count the words that come out of one’s mouth in other not to be misquoted or misrepresented. That is to tell you how controversial our world is right now.

Everyone seems to be right in their own eyes. Either it goes in my own way if not, it is bad and evil. Everyone has become the author of what is good and evil. We make decisions and support actions according to how it suits our greed and enhance our pride. The scripture which is the word of God is no longer the basis of truth. It is now being distorted by many who use it to suit their self-concept.

Even those that have good intentions are made to be seen as evil. Whatever is good is bad as far it is not from the person we like. Our hate has over clouded our sense of reasoning. There is no sense of decency amongst us. It looks as if we all are going back to the age of disorderliness, where there is no rule to the game. Everyone makes the rule for them self, play the game as they feel and also be the one to score them self. Everyone has created his own way of reasoning fact even in the midst of ignorance and delusion.

What is the way forward?

Self-Examination In Conformity With The Scripture Is The beginning to the Answer!

As Prophet T.B. Joshua rightly said, few things are more dangerous than a person with an unexamined life. I think it is time for every player in the world’s affair to examine themselves and ask themselves, at what ends is their words and actions to a better and righteous world. Where the advocate of peace, unity and tolerance will become the umpire of our modern civilization.

Irrespective of your political ideology wealthier, Democrat, Republican, Labour, Communist, left or right. We all should come together in one accord to pray for our leaders and nations. Including, those we are not in agreement with, they all need our prayers.

Satan seems to be gaining momentum in our respective nations today because we have deviated from our God-given values and instead embrace things that are contrary to God’s purpose for our nations.

This is why the ministry of T.B. Joshua, has continued to enlighten the world on the need to refocus their energy towards the real enemy that is responsible for the killings, stealing and destruction that is taken place in our today world.

Satan is our sole enemy. Let us come together as children of One Supreme God in the unity of purpose to fight against our collective enemy. If not, we will keep on wasting our time and energy fighting each other and making the world more uninhabitable for ourselves and generations to come. MAY GOD HEAL OUR WORLD AND MAY HIS PEACE NEVER DEPART FROM US ALL…AMEN!

TB Joshua, A Man With A Heart Of Gold

T.B. Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua deserves to be celebrated from different perspectives, especially at a time like this when the nation is passing through some kind of recession. He has put smiles on faces and has become one of the greatest friends of the poor and downtrodden within and outside Nigeria. Apart from his healing and deliverance gifts, Prophet Joshua walks tall in different aspects of human endeavours. His life story is a demonstration of God’s ability to use the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.

With mere primary school education, the General Overseer of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has established himself as a force to reckon within Nigeria and different countries across the globe. Located at Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, SCOAN has continued to receive exciting reviews from the international media, attracting different personalities, including heads of state and governments, across the world, who come to seek spiritual succour. But it does not end there. The man of God as he is often called understands the challenges of the world and has maintained a rare reputation for helping individuals, institutions and nations overcome their spiritual, challenges through crusades and humanitarian efforts. Many people within and outside the country have continued to benefit from his ministry’s magnanimity in terms of various monetary gifts, scholarship awards, provision of social amenities, empowerment projects and giving of seed money for business start-up. Through his ministry’s Emmanuel TV Partners, also broadcast in different paid TV channels, millions of lives and destinies have been changed for good across the world.

According to the man of God, ‘true love always searches for whom to help whenever and wherever it is in a position to do so.’ How he has been able to maturely handle the bad press emanating from the collapsed building incident remains very phenomenal. He has maintained a calm and unperturbed disposition –– a quality that can only be divinely bestowed, especially in situations of crisis. Prophet Joshua is among the very few Nigerian pastors you will hardly see around the corridors of power. You will never find him in any government house because he believes a true servant of God should be for all and not frolic around with politicians.

Before the plight of Nigerian deportees from Libya became a matter of national interest, Prophet Joshua has been helping this group of people with food and money running into several millions of Naira.

According to some of the deportees who landed in the country earlier this month, Prophet T.B. Joshua remains the only Nigerian pastor who has been passionately concerned about their plights. Prophet Joshua, they say, has been the only prominent Nigerian who has over the years shown unrivalled concern about their plights.

Even right from the Libyan prisons were most of them spent years, they had always looked forward to meeting the notable man of God, whom they described as the greatest thing to happen in Nigerian Christendom.

From records, Prophet T.B. Joshua has received over one million Nigerian deportees from Libya between 2014 and 2017 and has doled out both money and foodstuff in the region of N200,000,000 (two hundred million Naira).

Reminding the church of its role in an era when poverty and lack have taken over the world, the man of God, during a recent Sunday Service monitored on Emmanuel TV, reiterated the urgent need for true children of God to reach out to the needy in a manner that pleases God, lest their giving amounts to a waste of time. “All you have been giving, if you are not giving in a manner that pleases God, you are wasting your time,” he declared. He also enlightened the world on how giving can bring about contentment – “Don’t forget. Your possessions alone cannot bring you contentment, but giving to the poor can.”

RE: TB Joshua Took Advantage of me – Jim Iyke


tb joshua Jim Iyke

Jim Iyke’s Deliverance

My beloved Jim, I watched the video of your interview on Channels TV and I fully understand your frustration. No one is offended by your comments in the interview and my reply is not in any way met to condemn you but to tell you the truth as a token of my love.

I really don’t share the belief that you may have been contacted by the Prophet enemies and they have induced you with some benefits to say whatever you are saying right now or you are trying to save face because you have been made to believe that your encounter with God 4years ago was an embarrassment. But I am however surprised about your sudden change because you were actually the one defending your deliverance and was so excited that you had such a great encounter with God in the SCOAN.

Putting every doubts and speculation aside, I, however, think that your present frustration is a manifestation of your wrong belief system about the things of God and also your perception of T.B Joshua’s ministry. You said even if it was in hell there was a cure for your mum’s sickness, you would have go there and you also said you found the deliverance in the SCOAN laughable and your sister has to pinch you to tell you to stop. Those statements have much to say about your belief system.

These show that you neither understand the ways of God nor have faith in Him.  Your coming to the SCOAN to seek the face of God was based on a condition, “you must heal my mother”. T.B. Joshua is a man of God that works under the supervision of the Holy Ghost he is not a native doctor or a spiritualist that treat sick people. The healings and deliverance that take place in the SCOAN are for the salvation of your soul. You would not have bothered coming to the SCOAN since your motive was just for healing and not for your salvation. Instead, you would have gone to see a doctor or a spiritualist that may promise you instant healing.

If your faith in God is based on a condition that is not faith, you don’t condition God by saying, “I am coming to you so you can heal and bless me.” Meaning if God did not heal and bless you, you will not serve Him. God is looking for believers that will still have faith in Him even if their expectation were not meet.

Those that will say even if I’m healed or not God is still my healer, whether I’m saved or not God is still my saviour. Like the three Hebrew men: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who said to king Nebuchadnezzar,  “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.”  (Daniel 3:17-18) There believe in God went beyond their present situation. They were ready to defend their faith and not worship the king’s gods even if God chooses to save them or not – that is the power of faith and that is the kind of faith Christ is looking for.

If you want to stabilise your faith in Christ Jesus in this unstable world, below are some tips that will help you to have peace of mind and stop bothering yourself with unexpected questions that may affect your peace:

  1. There are questions about life we cannot answer
  2. There are things in life we can never explain
  3. There are things in life we can never change
  4. There are things in life you cannot control
  5. There are things in life you cannot stop
  6. There are things in life we are not responsible for
  7. There are things God can never explain to you – Let God be God.

I will end it here and I don’t want to say much to avoid a wrong interpretation of my motives. Just as the Prophet will say “Our response to a person who makes a mistake can also be a mistake if we are not careful.”
