Apostle Paul wrote (Philippians 3: 13-14), “Brethren I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”. In SCOAN we are similarly encouraged that “Better is not good enough, the Best is yet to come”. This is our outlook for the months ahead; though the past years had been exceedingly great, the man of God in SCOAN and his team had been doing great exploits for God, but better days are still ahead. This is cheering indeed. Prophet TB Joshua is a man of dynamic faith in Jesus Christ and His Word, teaching people not to be ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that will believe; That we should have absolute faith in the Word.
In this year 2019 we recall, with great gratitude to Jesus, several spectacular new blessings and exploits God did through His servant, Prophet TB Joshua, his team of prophets, evangelists, glorious choirs, and Emmanuel partners worldwide. For example, the meeting in Nazareth and the opening for the public to climb up and pray at the SCOAN altar, where multiple of infirmities are cured simply by rolling on the altar and fetching living water, are worthy of our mentioning. Those who choose to grow their faith in Christ Jesus through the teaching, testimonies and the freely accessible provisions in the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) may begin to appreciate the living Jesus the more.
Yet we know that, if we believe, there is no limit to what God can do in our lives and nothing is impossible with our God. God opens doors that no man can shut and also He closes doors that no man can open. The possibilities are endless with faith in God that is according to His will. We look forward to what God has planned for us, and willingly ready to walk by faith in obedience and to follow His leading. We are comforted that His plans are always for our good and not for evil to give us a future and a Hope, (Jeremiah 29:11-13). We also remember that God always has a reason for what He allows in our lives and through it we can trust Him completely, (Proverbs 1:3-5).
In appreciation, on behalf of the growing SCOAN family, we thank our prophet TB Joshua for allowing himself to be so used for humanity in a pure and holy Christian way. The variety and volume of miraculous healing, deliverance, prophecy, and teaching witnessed in 2019 are simply enormous. Hence we join ourselves together in our common faith in Christ Jesus to pray for more anointing and God’s abiding presence on prophet TB Joshua, Emmanuel TV partners, and on the entire Ministry of SCOAN. We are assured by the Holy Spirit that the best is yet to come. Being confident of this very thing, that He whom hat begun a good work in prophet TB Joshua and each one of us, will perform it until the coming of Jesus Christ.
