YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN

TB Joshua SCOAN

Prophet TB Joshua

“You can be forgiven and start again. When we make bad decisions – wrong choices – we feel the impact. Many give up and divorce, run away, become bitter or quit on life. I know of executives, pastors, priests and leaders who have stopped their pursuit of their life goals and basically quit trying – or worse. Turn your scars into stars. Don’t let your bad experience wipe you out.

All of us have made decisions we regret and all of us can be forgiven and start over. Our Creator will forgive us, and He will show us what to do next. If we go on our knees and confess our sins, He is faithful and just, and will forgive us of anything.

What about those who are Christians? The Scriptures tell us that Christians can make bad mistakes too. The difference is that they already have a relationship with God and should understand that they can immediately go to God about their behaviour. He will help us get back on our feet, forgive us and help us not make the same decision again.” – T.B. Joshua

PRAY WITH ME – TB JOSHUA

Scoan TB Joshua

Prophet T.B Joshua

“Heavenly Father, I boldly come to You, in the name of Jesus Christ. I ask You for Your Holy boldness as the disciples experienced during the days of the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. Lord Jesus, I reject fear. Lord Jesus, I receive faith.

Lord Jesus, I know You love me and You know that I love You, so I walk as an over comer today. I agree with Your Word, that fear cannot live in me.I agree with Your Word, full trust in You – You will not disappoint me.

Help me Oh Lord to turn away from that which has the power to turn me away from You. Oh Lord, help me to honour Your Words in all my actions, utterances and thoughts.”

Prophet T.B. Joshua

THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU!!!

Scoan TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua

“Too often, we think that the primary requirement for serving God is the gift of spoken language, great talent, high qualifications or impressive academic credentials. Peter and the other disciples were ordinary fishermen from a backward and lowly part of the country. They were nobodies till Jesus called them.

There is hope for you whether you are educated or not, whether you are a farmer or a professor. Stop talking about your limited education and start loving Jesus. In other words, others – if you hope to accomplish anything good in the future, it will only be because of your love for Jesus. Stop complaining that everyone in the family is poor. Stop repeating stories of those who failed you. Stop pointing your finger at the economy. Stop meditating on your flaws or weaknesses.” – T.B. Joshua

THE CHALLENGES WE FACE IN CHURCH – T.B. JOSHUA

TB Joshua SCOAN

Prophet TB Joshua

There are supernatural gifts of the Spirit given to the believers to minister to one another. These are received from the college of God, as God’s will. These are separated from man’s natural talents, ability and education. These elements which are obtained from man’s earthly college are used by satan to win the souls of men, and this affects the church in modern times.

Man’s natural ability, talent and education cannot be exercised in the church of the Holy Spirit without being sanctified. Man’s natural ability, talent and education must be obedient to God’s will before it can receive God’s blessing. Today, many people do not know the difference between God’s supernatural gifts and man’s natural gifts. These are the challenges we face in the church today. People use natural gifts for God’s work.

For example, a person has the ability to teach, preach, pray, fast, organise a church – these are man’s natural gifts. The Holy Spirit speaks, teaches, prays, organises as He wills. These are supernatural gifts of God. A person has the power to decide. The Holy Spirit has the power of choice. These are the challenges we face today. Jesus did not ask Peter if he was a gifted speaker, a talented leader. Jesus did not ask about Peter’s seminary training or Bible knowledge. These things are important but they are not the issue. The issue is quite simple. The basic qualification for lasting ministry is found in Jesus’ question: “Do you love Me?” In other words, ‘Do you have a relationship with Me?’

TOTAL, NOT PARTIAL!

tb joshua scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“To many, God is one of those things; that is, God is one of the things that are important to them. So they place God as equal to or lower than other considerations. Money, position, power, social relations, comfort, pleasure, traditional/ cultural beliefs – God is one of those things to them. What I am saying here is that, if any of these conflicts with their loyalty towards God, they are likely to be indifferent; I mean, sit on the fence. That is, any of these can affect their relationship with God, can stop them from praying or make them pray the more.

As for me, God is the only thing. God is the only reason. If God is the only reason, your commitment to Him would be total but if God is one of those things, your commitment to Him would be partial. Joshua said to his people, ‘As for me and my household, the only reason is God. Therefore, my commitment to Him is total, not partial’.

Like Joshua of old, I am putting it to you this day to choose what you make of God. Is He one of those things in your life or the only reason? Remember, if you make Him one of those things in your life, your commitment to Him would be partial. If you choose to make Him the only reason in your life, your commitment to Him would be total.

This is what Jesus instructed in Matthew 22:37, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” When can a man be said to do this? When are you said to do this? That is when you love nothing in comparison of Him but in reference to Him alone. I mean, in readiness to give up, do or suffer anything in order to glorify or please Him. When you are ready to sacrifice your time, body, health and comfort – I mean, every good thing the Lord has given you – for the honour of God, this means you have made Him the only reason in your life. If you choose to make Him the only reason, your commitment to Him would be total, not partial.” – T.B. Joshua

A MAN OF VISION!

tb joshua scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“When you are a man of vision, no matter what constitutes obstacles on your way, you can never be stopped: Opposition cannot stop you; blackmail cannot stop you. Instead of pressure and tension to force you to reduce your vision, they would even enlarge your strategies.

Opposition makes a man of vision to discover and develop better strategies to further his cause in the presence of his enemies. A man without opposition has no need to develop strategies.

For example, I am running and somebody is running after me, if that person running after me is an enemy and he increases his speed, I must also double my speed in order to prevent him from catching up with me. The more your enemies are after you, the more you pray. I mean, the more you need to improve your quiet moments for devotion.”

– Prophet T.B. Joshua

THINK OF TOMORROW

scoan tb joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“Whatever you receive now, without maintenance, is useless. It is better not to receive something you cannot maintain. It is all about maintenance. It is better not to ask for something you cannot maintain; it is better not to receive something you cannot maintain because it will expose you and put you in the hands of enemies. Without faith, no one can maintain.

If you believe you have achieved something without living right, remember that the beginner is not the owner but the finisher. How do you know that whatever you achieve now, you will be able to maintain it? Without faith, no one can maintain the blessings of God. If you know what it means to be a finisher, you will know what it takes to be a finisher. It takes faith to maintain your position to the end.

The beauty of achievement is when we no longer live and our achievement is still there, continuing to live and linger on in the eyes and ears of the children yet unborn. The children yet unborn want to see things that can influence them to do right. We are not necessarily blessed by God because of today but because of tomorrow.

Your concentration is so much on what you want to achieve. We have so many role models both good and bad in our family and community. Which path are we following? If your name is known today and vanishes tomorrow, what is the value? Don’t be deceived by the little you have.

Are you talking about marriage? If you are thinking of tomorrow, you will not just marry without asking God if this marriage will be able to stand tomorrow. The same applies to your job. Today is ours and tomorrow is God’s. Many marriages stand today but will not be able to stand tomorrow. Many businesses and relationships stand today but will not be able to stand tomorrow.

Faith is maintenance. You maintain your life if you live the life of faith – that is the only way you will be able to maintain your finances and health. You follow Jesus through faith. To follow Him demands faith, employs faith.” – TB Joshua
