​Will A Prophet Be Honoured Among His Countrymen?

The General overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua is a controversial figure that is well known for his massive healings, deliverance and unparalleled charitable works. As humble as the Prophet is in disposition, the controversy surrounding him and his Ministry has made some so called men of God especially those of his own country tag him a false Prophet. Their claims are based on questions like; who mentored him, his theological school, his earthly spiritual father and the controversial pattern of his healings and deliverance. They make these claims as though God does His things according to men’s tradition or has to consult them before He anoints His Prophet but little do they know that the things of the spirit can never be comprehended by man’s point of view; there are biblical histories of great men of God that had an encounter with God and were used to perform great signs and wonders without human mentorship or earthly spiritual fathers. Even this present generation of the church look up to these great Apostles and Prophets of God as heroes of faith.

Nevertheless, according to Prophet T.B. Joshua, what men don’t understand they call names and what they understand they destroy. Even Christ Jesus was maltreated and called all sort of unkind names. The same people who unjustly accused Christ were the once that crucified Him because His teachings and ways were different from man’s tradition. They believed in the Law of Moses while Christ came to usher mankind into the era of grace. Today, Christ Jesus has the greatest followers on earth, for Christians in nations all over the world believe in Him as the only saviour and redeemer.

It seems history is repeating itself because the rejection and name calling Christ and other Apostles of old experienced during their reign is similar to what the Prophet is facing today among his people.

Recently, Mrs. Vera Baboun the Mayor of Bethlehem (the birth place of Christ) and Fr. Peter Vasko OFN, the President of Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land, sent their Christmas greetings to the Prophet and Emmanuel.tv partners, recognizing the love the Prophet has for the work of God, calling for a persistent cordial relationship and look forward to seeing him again in the Holy Land.

Bellow is the YouTube video:

As ironic as this may sound, biblical history thought us that the forefathers of the Israelites did not value the Prophets of their time. They even crucified Christ Jesus and his apostles. But today, their present generation in repentance have seen the significance of Christ coming and now appreciate the love of Christ in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua. However, the Prophet whom the Israelites now honour for his love for Christ and the Church is the same Prophet most Nigerian clergies still see as false.

Indeed, this is a true reflection of the wise adage of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ that says “A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” – Mark 6:4. We hope this present generation learn from history and make sure it does not repeat itself.

  1. I read this article on how it is peeceived that “many Nigerians” have come to regard, our own beloved and highly reverence Senior Prophet T B Joshua, as merely a controversial “Man of God”. On the contrary and for many of us SCOAN is a solution ground and the last hope of as many people as may choose to believe.

    Recently, in an article, I described Senior Prophet T B Joshua as the most important Nigerian today. I came to this conclusion, not by carrying out opinion polls but what the Spirit told me. The Holy Spirit told me that the world needs a symbol of what humanity should be, what a true religion is, what true love is, what the future will look like, and what should be the societal preoccupation. The world also needs to know what type of relationships should exist between individuals, communities and nations. Prophet T B Joshua of SCOAN is a symbol of what each of us can be, if we are obedient and abstaining from sin.

    However, both Prophet T B Joshua and the entire SCOAN ministries must not divert attention to seeking popular approval, praise, recognizion or acceptance of men. Instead we expect them to continue in their fervent devotion to the scriptures (Holy Bible), teaching and living it out. This is what is making SCOAN unique, where demons can’t sneak in, pay tithes and run back to commit more atrocities, only to come back again.

    SCOAN must take the bull by its horn and be aggressive enough, in its mission, to cast out evil in the society. The society won’t be your friend that way. The international communities appears to recognize T B Joshua and his Ministry, but the numbers are similar to the numbers here in Nigeria. In fact Nigeria is a most friendly Christian country world over, despite Boko Haram, killings and targeting Christians in many parts of the country. The level and type of Christianity in the Western world, and in other places is so lukewarm and undesirable. This may explain why many Nigerian pastors have big churches all over the world. Church growth is not just numbers but in “spirit and truth”.

    I would be really sad the very day Prophet T B Joshua joins others to increase number and compromise the spirit or work with the people and the government of the day by compromising the faith and truth.

    Finally sir, it is not totally true that Nigerians don’t appreciate and recognised Prophet T B JOSHUA and his ministry. If SCOAN building were to increase ten times its present size today, it will still not contain the number of Nigerians alone that want to come, let alone other nations. It is like the banquet organized for the nobles but they were too busy and left it for the poor. Secondly I have not ready where traditionally religious leaders of a community would agree with things of the Spirit. No, instead what these people read about Jesus, when they finally saw Jesus they failed to recognize Him. Why? They prefer human standards as barometers for spiritual things.




    Hebrews 13:20-21 20 Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the everlasting covenant. 21 Make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. The Holy Bible is advising us that: Apostle Paul sent an Epistle to the Romans praying; saying that: May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, that great Shepherd of the sheep. Thoroughly equip you for every good work, for doing His will and may He work in you what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom glory forever and ever. Amen.

    In the Book of John 14:10-13,25-26 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority, but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. 12 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me the works that I do he will do also greater works than these he will do because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name I will do it. 25 These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the helper the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

It is the Father, living in Me who is doing His beautiful and wonderful work. Believe Me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been dong. he will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. All this I have spoken while still with you. but the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. The beautiful Spirit of the Lord will dwell on you so that you have freedom and be transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory which comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
    Receive God’s abundant provision of grace. In the Book of 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you that you always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. We are advised that Apostle Paul sent a Second Epistle to the Corinthians advising them that the glorious and gracious God Almighty is able to make all grace abound to you so that in all things at all times, having all that you need you will abound in every good work. The awesome God Almighty loves a cheerful giver. He will do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think according to the power that is at work within you. He shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. He will grant you abundant prosperity in every area of your life.

    In the Book of Book of 1 Corinthians 12:4-12 4 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but the same God who works in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all. 8 For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, 9 To another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit. 10 To another the working of miracles to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. We are advised that: There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit. To another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit. To another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the good works of one and the same Spirit and He gives them to each one, just as determines.

He will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. He will give you both riches and honor so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among leaders
