SCOAN is preparing the Church for the Perilous Times

Prophet TB Joshua

By ordinary definition perilous times consist of times of grave risks or perils, hazardous or dangerous voyages, etc. For example, having a kiss, hug or handshake with a neighbour in this coronavirus pandemic era is becoming a grave risk. Similarly, looking after a sick mother or father or a son, who may just be returning home as usual from China, USA, Italy, the UK, or just from any foreign country is now a risk. The social distancing advocators may have their merits but the Christian principle encourages us to love our neighbours as ourselves unconditionally and not to neglect meeting together. Hence, whereas we must be living in perilous times or the last days when violence is in every headline, Christians should turn to the Bible for understanding.

From Isaiah 2:2 or Micah 4:1 it is written that “…in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established …..; and people shall flow unto it.” We notice the flow of people to Zion (also called Jerusalem), and they are coming to the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria of Prophet TB Joshua. The last days will symbolize also the fulfilment of prophecies, not just the prevalence of violence, fear and panic. What we see building up in SCOAN is a prophecy fulfilment. You may wonder, why Nigeria of all places, or why TB Joshua?

As we read from John 7:37-38 the last day was that great day of the feast when Jesus stood and cried, saying, “… If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” Hence the world is passing through a moment when thirsts and hunger can only be cured by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; on an individual basis coming to Jesus. This 2020 Easter, surprisingly the streets of Jerusalem have become empty of Hossan or Halleluyah shouting Christians, as it is also in many congestions across the globe, including in SCOAN. But at the individual levels, we should look into Jesus, the Lamb of our sacrifice, our salvation and Saviour. Jesus left for us some words through His disciples in John 12:46-48. Jesus said “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hears my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth, not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.”

Therefore notice that there is a big difference between the last days and perilous times. The last days are usually for accounting, assessments and passing judgements. In Genesis 49:1 Jacob called his sons together to tell them what would happen to them in the last days. The lessons and teachings we are getting from SCOAN and Prophet TB Joshua are to prepare souls for the last days. Perilous times are dangerous times. Apostle Paul said, in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 “… that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. ….. They are ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Yes, these are the times the Church is passing through.

Hence at this Easter Time, it seems the world is passing through either a perilous time or the perilous times. Hitherto many individuals take satisfaction and comfort in Church gathering and worship, for whatever reasons. In this particular period, everyone is on his or her own because of the general lockdown and yet Christ must be preached and worshipped in every heart and home. Individuals are the embodiment of the Church of Christ and not the big ceremonial fanfare with all its regalia and rituals. Jesus has risen and individuals must experience this resurrection in the heart to live triumphantly from thence. Meanwhile be warned of scoffers that shall come in these last days (2 Peter 3:3-4), walking after their lusts. Please be careful.

Already there is a big controversy in the global internet and several Church leaders are in different camps; for which Christians must also be warned. The controversy is the prophesied beast’s number 666 in Revelation 13:18.  Currently, a vaccine is being developed to immunize individuals against the prevailing coronavirus pandemic. Even Christian scientists, people who should work to find a vaccine, are clamouring for the rejection of western world vaccine believing it’s a plot to the beast number insertion. Whereas each nation could work and find a vaccine, the society prefers to reject incoming western vaccine thinking that their conspiracy theory is scriptural. We agree with Prophet TB Joshua alluding to the possibility of COVID-19 being a scientific experimental error, possible known to some world leaders and some scientists. This he said during a question and answer time. Let us, therefore, read the Bible, believe the Bible and live by the Bible because it is the Word of Jesus, the risen Christ, the Way the Truth, and Light. In SCOAN our prophet will pray and God from heave will answer. Jesus is risen, yes He is risen indeed.

Coronavirus: There is An Error in Advanced Technology


tb joshua, scoan, emmauel tv, coronavirusTB Joshua answers question on the present challenges the world is going through:

QUESTION: Sir, why do we have a terrible time like this?

ANSWER: “You know I am not a politician. I just have to give you as the Spirit gave me because I received this message four days ago from the Holy Spirit. World leaders and scientists know what they are doing; they know what is happening. That is why they keep promoting fear and panic. Before coronavirus, there were deaths – but they never mentioned the number of deaths to us. Now, we begin to count the number of ‘death’ instead of counting the number of ‘life’.

“They know the gravity of the situation. The whole thing has to do with error in advanced technology. You know, I am not a scientist. The whole thing has to do with error, mistake in advanced technology. Now innocent people are dying, especially the elderly. Nothing is worth the blood of innocent souls, innocent people. There is no acceptable excuse for doing this.

“Now we have seen what it means to be locked down in a ‘concentration camp’. This is an opportunity for our world leaders, our scientists to look at the trouble spots in the world, e.g., Syria so that the displaced people can return to their countries. If not, I am seeing God’s anger. Let us abide by what the Bible says in 2 Chronicles 7:14. I am a minister of God; I am not a politician. I should not go too far from my profession. I should not speak what God has not asked me to say. I will leave the rest but I will let you know what is to come.” – TB Joshua

The Year of Humility By Prophet TB Joshua


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

Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has prophesied this period we are in as a year of humility. What is the meaning of humility? Why should we be humble? It is very important for the Church, and indeed the world at large, to listen to this prophet. The cumulative effects of the “Fearful Year” he predicted are still with us. The epic of the fearful year is probably the ongoing COVID-19 that is ravaging the entire globe with no respect for any class of person, race or gender. The prophet had been correct all along, after all.

Humility is often characterized as genuine gratitude and lack of arrogance, a modest view of one’s self. It is a critical and continuous emphasis of godliness, as we are called upon to be humble followers of the Lord Christ and trust in the wisdom and salvation of God. Proverbs 22:4 gives us a deeper look into the scriptural meaning of humility. “Humility is the fear of the Lord,” as a very precise definition. Not only does being humble consist of trusting God and following his will, but furthermore fearing the consequences of neglecting God’s commands for truth, love, work ethic, mercy, and beyond. Humility is recognizing the magnificent power of God and the potential retribution He will condemn upon us if we do not aim our purpose towards righteousness. The prophecy for this period may also consist of meekness and a life of service and giving to humanity.

As an example of humility, we may recall the late Mother Teresa who was a teacher in a school in India. All her needs were met in the convent where she lived. However, she chose to give up her life in that convent to live with the poorest of the poor on the streets of Calcutta, taking care of the very sick and dying. She took care of people with whom no one else wanted to bother. The Missionaries of Charity is the name of the religious order Mother Teresa started. Women who join this order give up their possessions and live a life of great simplicity. When they find people dying in the streets and the slums, they take them into their hospitals, clean them up, give them medical care, and if they cannot recover, provide a clean and sanitary place to die with dignity. Similarly, Prophet TB Joshua has a Ministry of Giving as part of SCOAN regular activities around the globe. This was his first activity in many low neighbourhoods in Lagos from the late 1980s to 1990s. In this COVID-19 pandemic era, the Church has been praying and encouraging the public not to fear or panic but to be humble.

The world has indeed been humbled and brought to a low position where nations with high technologies in warfare are helpless before coronavirus. The Church of Christ will remain strong as one body of Christ, but many individual congregations may go underground or merge with others. It is a new revolution and everyone will be humbled, except we manifest the fear of the Lord. The new World Order will emerge after the year of humility to redefine the new international relationships and economic cooperation. No nation will be too strong to fail henceforth but those who rely solely on Jesus Christ will survive.  Philippians 2:3-11 says in part, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. ..”.

As we struggle through in this new era of humility, (because humility is not natural to man in the flesh full of ego), let us remember what the scripture says in 2 Chronicles 7:13-15, especially verse 13 that is very popular. “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence (COVID-19) among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place”. Our prayer is that God will continually put His word and message in the mouth of our prophet and those who are going to teach on this subject of humility until we all become like Christ Jesus.

Prophet TB Joshua on Coronavirus and God Remembering Noah


Coronavirus, tb joshua. scoan
Coronavirus

It is very hard to imagine any act of nature that would be greater than a worldwide flood that occurred in the time of Noah.  The details of the story are in the Bible (Genesis chapters 7-9). I recommend that all Bible students read the story of Noah. The Lord wants us to know what happened and how it happened, and relating this to our daily walk with Him, especially this COVID-19 pandemic era.

Then God remembered Noah and every living thing and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided (Genesis 8:1).  At the due time, God sent a wind that blew across the whole earth and caused the floodwaters to begin to recede. This tells us about God’s authority over the forces of nature, over COVID-19, over Ebola, over smallpox, over our finances, our families, our health, over time and seasons. He is God above all.

Prophet TB Joshua, of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), prophesied recently on COVID-19, especially that the pandemic would end from March 27, 2020. At this very moment, this date he gave with the prophecy, is getting some section of the media confused and thinking that the prophet may not be right after all. But when we read Noah’s experience with the flood, when God remembered him, and when eventually Noah finally stepped out to the dry ground, Prophet TB Joshua may be correct. Whenever Prophet TB Joshua is making a prophecy, we encourage that people should always remember that at those times, he won’t be Mr TB Joshua. So let us always seek God’s interpretations for our circumstances and believe His prophets. We need the knowledge the prophets of God would provide us in this Dark Age when people are desperate and more interested in averting economic ruin rather than believing and obeying God’s word. People of the world prefer swallow solution/prescriptions that have worse side effects than their original problem. This is why panic, fear and shortcuts become normal actions for many.

We don’t know much about Noah’s emotions this period he was alone in the ark but the Bible described him as a man of faith (Hebrew 11:7). With instruction from God, Noah built the ark by faith, went in by faith, endured the ark quarantine time for over a whole year by faith, and came out of the ark courageously by faith. God’s true prophets would speak to us in parables. The press may be critical about the prophet, but they should appreciate him in order to get the best out of him, and building a strong relationship with him. In Noah’s day, the community probably ignored and mocked him. But one day Noah went into the ark with his extended family and animals. Seven days after the rain started and rained for 40 days and 40 nights. The point to note here is that it took some 150 days for the flood to abate after God remembered Noah. Hence we mustn’t lose the significant lesson from Prophet TB Joshua’s prophecy that our flood has started to abate but may need longer time for us to get out of the ark, like in Noah’s days. God may not want us to know the exact day so that we can continue to trust and obey Him. If we know that day the Lord of the vineyard will come, then where is the necessity for faith?

We should learn from the story of Noah that when affliction has done its appointed work, when COVID-19 may have run its appointed period, it will be removed from us. Whether it be sickness or ill fortune or bad circumstances or hateful opposition or even truly bad weather, when God’s purposes have been served, the hard times will go away. So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. All the animals and all the creatures (Genesis 8:18-19). But Noah came out gradually, using the Raven test, the Dove test, and eventually, God ordered him out. The rains have stopped but if we come out of the ark too soon we could still be washed away with the floods. Noah was patient and gradual in his approach, depending on instructions from God, and so should we. Stay safe in your homes and ready, like Noah, to build an altar of sacrifice and worship to God at the end.

Coronavirus – Gives TB Joshua an Opportunity to Demonstrate the Love of Christ


Coronavirus, tb joshua. scoan
Coronavirus

The ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic has not only caused sickness, death, fear and panic around the world but has resulted in the cancellation of several sporting and cultural events, denial of travel Visas between nations, restriction on free movement and assembly. It is like war in peacetime. A war against invisible microorganisms called coronavirus. The Church of Christ should not be in the dark on what should be done. We need to know the age we are in now and the role of the Church to the world on the fight against this unseen enemy.

The way the world is attempting to stop the exponential spread of COVID-19 disease scientifically is a combination of the following:

(1) Extraordinary restrictions on free movement and assembly, as well as aggressive testing, to interrupt its transmission entirely;

(2) Finding the vaccine that could protect everyone and

(3) The do-nothing approach by just waiting until enough people get the virus and the few survivors developing herd immunity.

All this is the struggle of the natural mind. Hence, as the world struggles with the uncertainty of COVID-19, with all its fear and panic, death and the financial ruin caused by the pandemic. The Church has an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the love of Jesus. This is where Prophet TB Joshua, of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations, (SCOAN) and the Church, in general, need to come in to provide a divine solution based on Jesus’ love for the world.

Already, Prophet TB Joshua and his team in the SCOAN are taking the lead in praying, prophesying and teaching the entire world on this coronavirus. The prayers for rains, that also happened, the constant teaching, the prophecy of this time and encouragements from SCOAN, are worthy of note for all who care to listen. What more can the Church do? For example, the United States of America USA, and many other governments, are rolling out trillions of dollars as bailout and relief bills to stabilized their ruined economies and rescue a few of the COVID-19 victims. Nevertheless, these steps are not going to remove the pandemic but just attempts to save their national economy.

In Luke 11:42 we read Jesus saying, “Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone”. Here the focus is not a warning to the Pharisees of this world on their superficial tithes. The people of the world are more concerned with external appearances than with inner spiritual truth and love. This is why the world will give bailouts and relief bills to create the illusion of significance and only to help their re-election efforts. What God truly asks of us, however, is an inner commitment to the qualities of justice and love. Such are less obvious, less showy and less impressive to others. But without justice and love, our giving and services are going to be meaningless.

Hence like Nicodemus, we have the opportunity to come to Jesus in times like this COVID-19 global pandemic era to look for our salvation and what else we ought to do. The public is asking many questions. For example, whose sin that a pandemic of this scale would be unleashed on every nation? Are we already in the eras described, especially in Revelation 16, where angels will pour out the vials of the wrath of God, one after another, upon the earth to cause great pandemics? The world would need teaching and prophecy of the age and time we are passing through. The Church also has a great task to counsel and rehabilitate victims and survivors of this pandemic beyond what respective governments are currently doing. Prophet TB Joshua has been raised to a position where he can provide revelation and encouragement to this generation.

Coronavirus – The Time for World Humility


coronavirus, china, tb joshuaThe miraculous testimonies coming out of China of the rapid healings and zero cases of locally affected patience in Wuhan and low transmission of the coronavirus, after the Prophecy of the man of God, Prophet TB Joshua on the showers of rain that will wipe away every fear of the unknown, which include coronavirus is a testament to the fact that God is already in control of this coronavirus epidemic that is causing fear around the world.

Truly the Chinese were very effective and transparent in their handling of the virus and the world is celebrating them for the work well done, but we need to acknowledge the fact that the good news coming out of China is a product of God’s grace. Remember there is no clinical cure to the virus yet. The situation in China is being under control because of God’s intervention and this every other nation need to emulate.

Europe, especially Italy is now the epicentre for the coronavirus. With more death compare to China where the virus started.

This is the time for us to run to God for help amidst this global epidemic. There is nothing to be ashamed of. An extraordinary situation requires extraordinary actions. Genuine Faith needs to be activated and the world needs to humble themselves and be awaking to the reality that God is supreme above all.

The Prophet always remind us that in every situation, God has something to say. There is nothing that happened in this world that is a coincidence, everything happened for a reason. This is why the world needs to understand that this is not a time for world politics of accusations and counter-accusation. This is a time for us to do a proper self-examination on our relationship with God and others around us.

We need to know that this is a delicate time. This is not a time for arrogance because it will only bring about self-destruction. Anybody can be a victim, irrespective of the class or status.

No one can stand on the way of God, His purposed will be achieved whether we like it or not, all we need to do is to humbly come to him and asked for His mercy. The grace is available and the healing is already done. Just come to him and partake in that healing grace.

The world has to seek His face in the sincerity of hearth if we want this healing that we are seeing manifesting in China to go through other parts of the world rapidly especially, those that are presently the epicentre of this epidemic.

God is not a liar, His words are true and sure. It is left for us to claim it to ourselves in humility, righteousness and Faith.

New Morning Anointing Water

Due to the alarming rate of death coming out of Italy and other affected nations around the world coupled with the fact that there is still no vaccine that can fight this virus, we are still insisting that the government of those affected nations in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), should come to the SCOAN to officially other for the Anointed Water that has been affected by God, for healing and deliverance.

Perhaps, this continual call may seem foolish to many around the world and even opposed by the sceptic, unbelievers and the Satanist ideologist. But we should always put it in mind that, the vicissitude of time will tell who is indeed foolish and wise.

MAY GOD’S MERCY NEVER DEPART FROM US…AMEN!

Sunday Services Gathering at the SCOAN with Prophet TB Joshua


scoan, tb joshuaAcross the world today Sunday 22, March 2020 the gathering of different peoples from the diverse religious and ethnic background is being missed at the Synagogue, Church of all Nations (SCOAN). The cost to the international community is huge because of the healing, teaching, prophecy, counselling, fellowship, etc, that goes on at the SCOAN Arena of Liberty. Distant viewers, sick people in various hospital beds, prisoners, families and other communities, especially where open evangelism is disallowed, have combined as a great overflow Church under SCOAN. We must attend to them and Emmanuel.tv partners must note this area.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has locked down cities, nations, and their economic, causing fear and panic, creating new social concepts like social isolation and social distancing, is responsible. Prophet TB Joshua has taken to educating the public on the pandemic a lot earlier and prophesying its eventual end. But a faithless and unbelieving generation like our generation would prefer to think that they are in charge to run our lives. The result of government orders, without putting the opinion of God as a basis, can often be misleading, creating fear, panic and killing more people.

There are various Sunday Assemblies, religious and non-religious gatherings around the world today. For example, Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans in January 2013 in London, England founded a non-religious Sunday Assembly gathering mostly for people who want a similar communal experience to a religious church. They probably hated the Church and wanted their world. In Nigeria and many other communities, Muslims gather on Sunday. These gatherings should be affected by the coronavirus following government orders. We know that our prophet TB Joshua is law-abiding and would normally comply with Civic orders excepting those directly affecting our faith in Christ Jesus like in the days of Daniel.

Nevertheless, the Sunday Gathering is not man-made but very scriptural. For example in 1 Corinthians 16: 2, “On the first day of the week, each of you should set aside some income and save it to the extent that God has blessed you so that a collection will not have to be made when I come”. Even concerning the so-called coronavirus, many hands are working to eradicate the pandemic. The prophets, pastors, and others must be allowed to pray along. Those of us in mathematical sciences we are studying the model of transmission using an index to locate those with direct or indirect contacts. Perhaps it is the Church that should play its role in the society for which many governments have lost trust in.

For Prophet TB JOSHUA and SCOAN, we expect normality in service but without the usual crowd where the entire world will be their overflowing assemblies. The point is that people in the society have placed more confidence in SCOAN of TB Joshua than on their respective governments. A “Live Service” may help the sick, the fearful, the lonely, the rejected and the hopeless. The point is that there is power backing the Word coming out of the mouths of holy men and women working in the SCOAN, and of course in all living Church of Christ. We must work consciously on these overflowing gatherings that put their faith on Christ through SCOAN, whether or not there is a coronavirus.

Coronavirus Questions and Answers with Prophet TB Joshua


coronavirus, scoan, tb joshuaThe prophet has answered some question concerning his declaration on the coronavirus epidemic, he stated that people are profiting from the situation at hand and that the effect of the epidemic will be felt throughout the year.

Below is the transcript on the questions and answers released on the SCOAN official social media pages:

QUESTION – Prophet TB Joshua, what shall we call this period we are in – where you cannot give your neighbour a handshake, you cannot cough in public, travel to Jerusalem or Mecca for pilgrimage has been prohibited, people no longer share the Holy Communion cup, Pope Francis is performing Mass through video, many churches are holding services online, universities such as Harvard have closed, in many countries there are no gatherings of people more than ten and even President Trump said the situation is “not under control”. What can you say?

ANSWER – Don’t forget what Jesus said to His disciples, to Simon Peter in Luke 22:32 – “I pray your faith will not fail.” It is a prophetic word. Jesus was prophesying about what was to come – a time like this. He knew something was coming that would challenge our faith, that would take the faith from many, that would stop people from worshipping. But I don’t see anything to panic about because Jesus said in John 16:33 – “In this world, you will have tribulation – but cheer up; I have overcome the world.”

Don’t forget what I said at the beginning of the year – “Work of God – people will be getting tired this year because the work of God is not by power and might; because of so many challenges, tribulations and burdens they will not be able to bear.” Real faith thrives on a test. If there was nothing serious in the past to test our faith, here is something to test our faith in a unique way – a real situation. What an opportunity to grow in faith, in our relationship with God! What can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:38-39)? Can the coronavirus? Can death? Nothing! As 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear.

QUESTION – You said the voice of the coronavirus will be silenced by the end of this month but President Trump said it may linger until July or August. For re-emphasis, we want to hear from you again because there is so much fear and panic.

ANSWER – I say again – it is the remnants we are seeing. The real coronavirus is gone. What we are seeing now are the remnants. But what the coronavirus has caused – economic backlash, fear – will linger until the end of the year.

QUESTION – How do we overcome fear?

ANSWER – What is fear? How do you define fear? Fear means you are not in line with God, you are not with God. Fear exposes the level of our relationship with God. Fear exposes the kind of relationship we have with our Creator – God. Fear exposes who we serve, who we believe. Fear means we are not serving God with all our hearts. Fear means we are not such in heart. The opening of the eyes of our faith will be the silencing of our fears.

QUESTION – What are we to expect at the end of this month?

ANSWER – I have said it! How many times do you want me to say it? How many times do you want to hear it?

QUESTION – But are we to continue with the coronavirus?

ANSWER – The name of God has always been used for possible things – but faith is for impossible things. We are using God’s name for possible things, not impossible. People’s lives have been like this. This coronavirus has only exposed us. Our challenges determine where we are spiritually. Challenges reveal the true condition of man’s heart. Challenges reveal where we belong. Remember, faith is for impossible things.

QUESTION – If I may be clear, you said the voice of coronavirus will be silenced by the end of this month. Are we right?

ANSWER – Well, I will not blame you, because you live by what you see and what you hear. I am telling you what is to come. Thank God you cannot change it, because people are profiting from the situation at hand.

Botswana Best Student Gets TB Joshua Scholarship


A Form 2 high-flyer Naomi Higgins, who passed her Junior Certificate Examination (JCE) with flying colours, has received a tertiary scholarship from Nigerian televangelist Temitope Balogun Joshua, commonly known as Prophet TB Joshua.

Higgins joins thousands of students worldwide who have received scholarship ranging from primary to tertiary education sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua, founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and Emmanuel TV partners.

The 14-year-old brilliant student will be the second from Botswana to benefit from the same initiative following Mary-Jean Nleya who was sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners to pursue her Bachelor of Laws and attained Magna Cum Laude at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

Nleya was also sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua to pursue her Master’s Degree at Harvard University under the Harvard Law School and was also given an opportunity with the help of the Prophet to get an internship at International Criminal Court at The Hague in the Netherlands.

Higgins, who is currently doing her Form 4 at Selebi-Phikwe Senior Secondary School (SPSSS) was the only student at Nxakato JSS who attained grade A even though she sat for JCE whilst doing Form 2.

In an interview with Mmegi, Higgins said that words were not enough to describe her happiness when she received an invitation to SCOAN by Prophet TB Joshua.

She said that during her first encounter with Prophet TB Joshua she was shivering and all in tears.

She added: “Prophet TB Joshua is a holy man and everything at SCOAN was godly. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet him in person.”

Higgins further said that she was still shocked that everything that happened to her in the past weeks started off with a small achievement of her passing JCE.

She hopes to be a cardiologist and said that to her surprise during her one-on-one with Prophet TB Joshua, he offered her a tertiary scholarship to study what she wants when she finishes her BGCSE.

She also said that Prophet TB Joshua also appointed Nleya to be her mentor, role model and contact person for the prophet. Higgins clarified that: “Nleya was the one who showed Prophet TB Joshua the article.

She is the same person who is going to assist me to apply for Harvard University or any other university, which is best in Cardiology across the globe.” She added that the scholarship would cover everything including tuition fees, living allowance and accommodation.

She also mentioned that Prophet TB Joshua gave her $3, 000 (about P33,000) so that she can purchase educational material to help her prepare for the BGCSE final examination. The intelligent girl was so determined to study harder at school because there was no way she was going to miss an opportunity to go to Harvard University.

About her stay in Nigeria, Higgins said she was over the moon because it has been her long term goal to be part of the congregants at SCOAN. She said that she would always cherish the moment because she was treated like a very important person (VIP) and accommodated in an executive suite just like in a five-star hotel.

The brilliant student described their experience at SCOAN as something out of this planet especially, the part where they visited the spiritual prayer mountain. The ever smiling student said to make the journey to SCOAN even memorable was the part where she had to board on an aeroplane for the first time in her life.

She said that she would always thank God for everything, day and night, for making her dream come true earlier than expected. Higgins’s mother Ruth Higgins, who was equally elated, thanked Mmegi for writing an article about her brilliant daughter.

She said it was through the article that her daughter was discovered by the Prophet TB Joshua who offered her the tertiary scholarship. She further said that if her daughter finishes her Form 5, provided she performs well, she will go to any University of her choice and Prophet TB Joshua will wholly cover the scholarship.

Ruth added: “I don’t know how to describe the feeling as it is out of this world. The ball is in her court now to work extra harder in order to pass her BGCSE.” The delighted mother said that the bursary gives them assurance as parents that their daughter ‘s dream of studying Cardiology at Harvard University would come true provided she meet the University entry credentials. Ruth was certain that her daughter would pass BGCSE with merit because she is a hard worker and well-disciplined girl.

She expressed gratitude to Prophet TB Joshua for awarding Naomi the tertiary education scholarship and to God for giving her abundance of blessings. Ruth also thanked one of the beneficiaries of Prophet TB Joshua’s education bursary Nleya who discovered her daughter.

She shared that they learnt that Nleya also received scholarship from Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners years back when she was just an ordinary visitor at SCOAN. She also described Nleya as a guardian angel who made her daughter’s dream turn into reality. Naomi’s father, Kenneth Higgins said that he was extremely overjoyed of his daughter’s achievements. He said that his daughter’s achievements have brought admiration to his family.

Kenneth said: “This is what all fathers dream of and this is what we want for our families. I give all the honour and glory to the almighty God and Prophet TB Joshua for this grace from God. I am very much humbled by the kind gesture.” He said that Naomi’s achievements would go a long way in motivating her fellow peers on the importance of taking education seriously and to aim high and reach great heights.

Happy 14th Birthday Emmanuel TV


Emmauel Tv, 14year, BirthdayWe are standing in one accord on Christ our solid Rock, Lord and Savior to say, “Happy 14th Birthday to Emmanuel TV”. It has been many years of bringing the Apostolic Gospel of the Church of Christ to every corner of the world and hence part of our joy. It can only be God, using holy men to write His scriptures in prints or broadcasting.

Prophet TB Joshua, the Founder and Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, has a clear purpose, mission and vision and this is why his life has had a great meaning to the entire world. In the early stages of his ministry, there was almost no media coverage. The prophet had to pay for short airtime slots in the few available governments owned media houses, most of which didn’t go beyond their states. Due to the poor media coverage, the early day’s detractors capitalized on that to misinform the world about the person of Prophet T. B. Joshua and the ministry. Unfortunately, many who had criticized his ministry whilst still on their two feet are now being wheeled to the SCOAN Arena of Liberty to be set free. Again it is the work of the Holy Spirit using Emmanuel TV to reach out to people in their need. Emmanuel TV, through the Holy Spirit, is fishing out people from different parts of the world every Sunday; their national flags indicating how far they have come.

To be fair to Prophet TB Joshua’s critics, miracles are not what we see in every ministry. Besides, there is a major misconception and confusion on which direction to propagate the Great Commission of Jesus, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone”; Mark 16:15. Each ministry needs to wait on the Lord for His direction.  Many prefer opening up new meeting points within every community or building the biggest assemblies, or other methods. True and specific miracles, prophecies, giving, teaching, and all Love Bedrock of Prophet TB Joshua and his kind of ministry are scarce in this generation. The devil is also not leaving any stone unturned. With 14 years behind ineffective broadcasting, Emmanuel TV may look back and do its self-assessment and move forward from there. As its motto, “Better isn’t good enough, the Best is yet to come”. We shall keep expecting a full and running over a cup of blessing from the Lord Jesus as we pray and keep watching Emmanuel.tv

Happy 14th Birthday Emmanuel TV.

‘HEALING RAIN’ Falls Worldwide as TB Joshua Declares End To Coronavirus Outbreak!


coronavirus, tb joshuaAs the world grapples to deal with the outbreak of coronavirus, Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua has declared that showers of rain would fall to ‘wipe away’ the deadly virus. 

On Saturday 29th February 2020, Joshua declared that “showers of rain that will wipe away the fear of the unknown” would fall as a sign the days of the disease were numbered.

In the days that followed, rain surprisingly fell in cities around the world, including in Wuhan, China – the epicentre of the disease and location of most of its fatalities.

For many communities in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa, the rain that fell was the first of 2020, prompting celebration and relief from residents.

Some of Joshua’s followers on social media even testified that they received ‘healing’ after entering the showers of rain.

“Immediately, my menstruation that had stopped for seven months started to flow – it’s a miracle,” wrote Mary Morris from Bayelsa State, Nigeria on Facebook.

“I had a terrible flu,” wrote Janet Machiya from Zambia. “As it started showering around midnight, I woke up with my children and we went outside to have a touch from the rain and boom – I was healed instantly!”

In France, rain fell throughout the nation – a rare occurrence in March. Additionally, there were reports of rainfall in Italy, South Korea and Japan – three of the countries most affected by the outbreak.

In recent days, the number of reported cases of coronavirus has significantly dropped in China, with residents once in ‘lockdown’ starting to return to their normal lives.

The outbreak of the disease commonly known as coronavirus or COVID-19 – which started in Wuhan, China but has since spread to 82 nations – sparked worldwide panic and resulted in severe economic decline.

After the first case of coronavirus was diagnosed in Nigeria last week, fear was rife that Sub-Saharan Africa would struggle to cope if the disease were to spread.

However, Joshua called for calm and ‘prophetically declared’ that the end of the disease was in sight.

“By the end of this month – whether we like it or not – it will go the way it came,” Joshua declared on Sunday 1st March 2020 during his sermon aired live on Emmanuel TV.

This corroborated his message on January 4th 2020 – before the virus came to public attention – when the cleric declared that the fearful events of 2019 would end in March 2020 according to “God’s timetable”.

“The reason why I am here today is to clear the air, to let you know calmness has returned. So, there is no cause of alarm,” he counselled congregants in only his second public appearance during a Sunday service in 2020.

Within his much-publicised ‘prophecy for the year’, Joshua had termed 2020 a “year of humility”, adding that there would be a worldwide “economic backlash” – a declaration that has already been proven accurate in the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak.

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


tb joshua, scoan, emmauel.tv
Prophet TB Joshua

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

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

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

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

South Sudan Forms Unity Government as TB Joshua’s Prophecy Comes to Pass


South Sudan peaces, tb joshuaSaturday 22nd February 2020 is set to go down as a historic date in South Sudan as a unity government between once bitter rivals President Salva Kiir Mayardit and opposition leader Riek Machar finally comes to fruition. 

“I want to tell the people of South Sudan that all the changes that are taking place right now are to bring peace and not changes that will bring conflict again because we are tired of conflict,” Kiir announced as he officially appointed Machar as Vice President, one of five to be appointed to the new government.

For months, the government and former rebels were at an impasse over the number of states in South Sudan as Kiir unilaterally increased the number to 32 during the recent civil war, which resulted in the deaths of over 400,000 people.

After failing to meet the two previous deadlines to form a unity government, fears of a resurgence in violence were palpable.

However, Kiir chose to compromise “for the sake of peace” and reverted to the original ten states, paving the way for the unity government’s formation.

This historic settlement, a huge step towards lasting peace in the world’s youngest nation, was ‘prophesied’ during the recent visit to Juba by Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua on November 12th 2019.

tb joshua, scoan, south sudan“I am here to prophesy to the nation. If I am a prophet, this will not go without fulfilment,” Joshua boldly declared in a national address at the Presidential Palace, broadcast live on South Sudan’s state television.

“This country is going to enter a new beginning – whether you like it or not, whether I like it or not,” he continued, insisting that “your agreement does not matter to what God is about to do” and “you cannot stand in the way of the Lord”.

With Kiir and his entire cabinet in attendance during the address, the cleric stressed that “peace has no price” and counselled leaders to overcome all divisions and differences.

“Time has come for us to put our differences behind us. Our leaders, we should overcome our divisions and agree to work together – for the good of this country,” he declared, before leading the leaders in prayer for peace.

Social media in South Sudan was awash with news of Joshua’s visit, with many citizens insisting his prayers and prophetic message were pivotal in the peace process.

“It is the high time South Sudanese should embrace Prophet TB Joshua for his prophecy has come to pass about our nation,” wrote Gum Thany on Facebook.

“Imagine our leaders made historical concessions for the first time just for the sake of peace and this is being coupled with showers of rain in Juba in the middle of dry season,” he added.

Numerous attempts in the past to bring peace between Kiir and Machar proved unsuccessful – including the time the duo were received by Pope Francis in Vatican City where he famously kissed the warring leaders feet.

South Sudanese citizens are hopeful that the new unity government will usher in an era of peace, development and stability.

How TB Joshua Predicted German Terror Attack on Facebook


tb joshua. german, prophecyThe terrorist attack by a far-right extremist which shocked the nation of Germany and resulted in the deaths of nine people was predicted on Facebook last year by prominent Nigerian cleric TB Joshua. 

According to a Facebook post clearly dated March 28th 2019, Joshua had warned Germany of an impending ‘terrorist attack’ and specifically called for prayers on “Thursday”.

“I want you to join me in praying against an imminent terrorist attack in the nation of Germany, particularly Thursday,” the post states, with Joshua clarifying he had seen several ‘visions’ regarding this attack.

“The Government and people of Germany should be vigilant and guard against this… We are on our knees praying for the nation and people of Germany,” the post, which was placed on the official TB Joshua Ministries Facebook Page followed by 3.7 million people, concluded.

Late in the evening of Wednesday 19th February 2020, a deadly gun attack was carried out in the German city of Hanau killing nine people “of migrant background” and injuring six others.

The first target was the Midnight shisha bar – popular among Germany’s Kurdish community – in the city centre of Hanau where witnesses heard about a dozen gunshots.

The suspect, identified in local media as ‘Tobias R’, then travelled by car to the Kesselstadt neighbourhood and opened fire at the Arena Bar & Cafe.

The extremist, who was found dead in his house alongside his mother in the early hours of Thursday 20th February 2020, had written a ‘manifesto’ in which he espoused ‘deeply racist views’.

The police stated they are investigating the shocking incident as a ‘terrorist attack’ and various government figures warned of the dangerous rise of extremist views and groups within Germany.

Two other smaller attacks by far-right extremists took place within Germany in 2019, including the murder of Walter Lübcke, a pro-migrant politician – giving credence to Joshua’s warning that the German government must be “vigilant”.

“We pray for God’s strength for all those affected by this tragic incident,” a post on the cleric’s Facebook page, which reminded followers of his prophetic message, concludes.

Videos on Joshua’s popular YouTube channel Emmanuel TV reveal he has prophesied various world events, from the death of pop legend Michael Jackson to the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani by US forces.
