HARD TIMES MAY TEST ME, THEY CANNOT DESTROY ME‪ #‎TBJoshua

To withstand hard times, stand with Christ. When you face trials, hard times, you can ‘count it all joy’ if you add faith (James 1:2-3). It is through hard times that you gain the necessary experience and maturity to handle whatever responsibility given you. We are most likely to go astray from God and forget Him when things are easy with us in the world because we often become proud and stupid with wealth and pleasure. God visits His people with hard times that they may learn His way. His ways, though hard to the ungodly men, are desirable and profitable because they lead us to safety unto eternal life.

2 Chronicles 12:5-8 – God allowed the enemy to overcome Israel so that they may learn the difference between serving God and serving the devil. If not for our hard times, we would not have sought the face of God. I mean, if not because of hard times, man by his wicked nature would not have sought the face of God. This means, God sometimes uses hard times to draw us to Himself so that we can take our proper position and possession in Him.

Jim Iyke been set free in the name of Jesus

Jim Iyke been set free in the name of Jesus

Since the ‘deliverance’ of Jim Iyke at the Synagogue Church of all nation went viral, the surprising news has cause a storm in the social network as many fans and well-wisher of the Nollywood actor has come out to share their words of condolences to the actor and some even praise him for the boldness and humility he show to come to Scoan for such a public deliverance not minding is personality so also, some fans, fellow Nollywood stars and even politician have come out to share their own thought of criticism against Jim Iyke’s deliverance.

Patrick Obahiagbon a politician Well known for is grammar in Nigeria, called Jim’s deliverance a comedy, Porn queen, Afrocandy also made comments about Jim’s deliverance, according to her, she wonder how much Jim was paid to pull such a stunt, Dencia a music star was alleged not to be impressed with Jim’s deliverance also Former AGN President Segun Arinze was also reportedly to have called jim deliverance an embarrassment.

Many are the comment which can’t be published as they contain direct attacks to Jim Iyke and the ministry of T.B. Joshua.

Now with all this comment of criticism that are full of hatred against the new found freedom of our beloved brother Jim Iyke’s, here are some wonderful reply to those critics.

All this comment were presented as stated by the commentator without any editing.

First comment

Hon Patrick or whatever he calls himself is an iddiot.. I never saw myself calling a man who is as old as being my dad an idiiot, but what do you expect me to say to an old man who thinks big english is the solution to every issue.. I dont really know the motive behind this tweet of his but i suspect it’s a cheap move to garner more followers on twitter..
This is a sensitive issue and i see no reason why this man should even say anything publicly about it.. Why cant he keep his bloody opinion to himself…
Talking about Tb Joshua:
I see no reason why people keep attacking the man.. I dont know if Tb Joshua’s miracle are fake or real cos i am in no bloody position to say but all i have to say is;

1.. What more do Nigerians want? This man has healed many people with problems free of charge.. He has saved many sick people from the cold hands of death by curing their ailments..
This man is doing what our redundant health sector has been ignoring for decades..
2.. Pls can the conspiracy theorists tell why Tb joshua will seat down,scratch his head and say “Viola,we need to pay certain actors to fall under the anointing?
For christ’s sake,the man is already known globally.. Prominent people all over Africa and the world visit him..
Who da ffuck is Jim Iyke and of what use will Jim Iyke’s deliverance be to him or his already mammoth ministry?
Everybody in Nigeria knows Tb Joshua and the works he has been doing..
What does he needs Jim Iyke for? To increase his already millions of members or what exactly?
Honorable Patrick is a honorable fool and to say i am disappointed in him is the least i can say.. Atleast this mumuish comment of his that lacks thought and reeks of stupendous stupidity has proven that he belongs to the class of Nigerians who think big english has anything to do with brain power..
As afrocandy, i have nothing to say cos i never expected any less stupidity from that one..
Lastly,i m in no position to say if Tb joshua’s miracle are fake or not, but the man has helped millions of people in Nigeria and there is nothing any conspiracy theorist or group of theorists can do about that…. Nigerians and their wahala.. When someone helps, they complain and accuse.. When they are ignored,they curse…
Wetin una want? Geeez!!!
All the Patricks who belong to the clan of Obiaghon’s should forgive my typos.. No time to spell-check..
All izz stiil well!

Second comment

Little wonder why those seen as the’ cream of the society’ are immoral and posing as bad role models for our kids and those whom look up to them. They seldom believe in God and the exta-ordinary and take the slightest opportunity in geering at those turning a new leaf.
What can you make of Pat obihiagbon? A filibuster and cliche squanderer, gathering fellowers by pronuncing latin and greek words; a man part of the same political engineering that loots us.
Afro candy? Who’s that?! The name alone call her decency to questioning. Isn’t she the internet celebrity that ridiculs people for a living as if she’s got a perfect life without skeletons in her cupboard?
Wow! Everyone takes opportunity to have a voice! Bandwagon of depressing hypocrites!!

Third comment

I watched it live……….and I am beginning to believe in TB Joshua as A prophet of GOD………..Guys we are witness of his polite and down to ground attitude and he is extremely generous nobody should under estimate his generosity because it takes a good heart to gives. People easily recommend end time thing…….Rubbish……If they really believe in end time what changes have they made in their lives knowing fully this is end time absolutely noting else should matter it`s all over it`s end time………….People like Dencia should be ashamed that she can even quote a verse without ameliorating her ways or does n`t end time mean anything to her……….? A guy is having problem and went for deliverance and feels good about that what`s wrong with that……?

Forth comment

Okay so i dont get this, what is this supposed to mean with all the Hatred and Bias comment about His Deliverance,..? Is it that his ways/possession if he really was is too big to be delivered or is it because he is an Actor and as such over familiarity has made us to think the it was all staged.?, How about Higher dignitaries from other countries who are being delivered, people who are much more known in the Society who get delivered at same Church, I think the hatred for SCOAN has gotten into some people that even when they see the truth they tend to act like they do not see anything, and surely such act depicts a failed soul who can never find salvation until they are ready to open their heart in other to seek for salvation.
I am not a member of SCOAN , neither have i been there, i am also not a Church Goer, i am just me and i believe in God.

We thereby call on Patrick Obahiagbon, Afrocandy, Dencia, Segun Arinze, Charles Novia and other Critics Of Jim Iyke’s Deliverance to embrace our lord and saviour Jesus Christ and if they think that Jim Iyke was paid for the performance as they called it, let them come to Scoan to see if they will be pay too for their own deliverance, Scoan door is open wide for them let them come, it is not a matter of talking or criticising the great work of God being done in our present generation. If you think you are not comfortable with the whole episodes of Jim Iyke’s deliverance and you called it fake or stage manage why not come to Scoan and see if your deliverance will be a stage manage.

Jim Iyke “receives deliverance” at TB Joshua’s church

TB Joshua Church Lagos | watchedtbjoshua.wordpress.com

Renowned Nollywood actor Jim Iyke has been ‘delivered’ from demonic attacks during the live deliverance service at the Synagogue Church of All
Nations (SCOAN) in Nigeria headed by Prophet T.B. Joshua Sunday.

Making a surprise appearance in The SCOAN, Nollywood superstar Jim Iyke entered quietly and unannounced, joining worshippers from around the
world as they listened to the inspiring message from renowned Prophet T.B. Joshua.

As The SCOAN’s Wise Men moved through the congregation in prayer, the lightning of God located Iyke and he was no longer able to control himself.

Lunging towards one of the Wise Man as if to attack him, an evil spirit that had been tormenting the life of Jim Iyke manifested! The congregation in the auditorium and the overflow congregations shouted in surprise as they began to witness the deliverance of a man they were all too familiar with.

Jim Iyke, born James Ikechukwu Esomugha, is currently one of the highest paid actors in the Nigerian movie industry and cultivated the name
“Nollywood bad boy” for himself. As one of the most successful actors in Nollywood, he has starred in over 150 films to date.

He has launched his own film production unit, “Untamed Productions” and his own music label, “Untamed Records” with his very own album, “Who Am I?” He is also founder of “Jim Iyke Foundation”, contributing funds to children of the less privileged and children with physical challenges. Among his movie awards are: The Teenage Choice Award, Best Actor In Nigerian Entertainment Award, African
Achievement Award, Best Actor of the Year (Mode Men Award 2010), Sexiest Man In Nigeria 2008, Best African Actor (NET Awards).

The evil spirit that had tormented the life of Jim Iyke For so many years began to manifest, confessing that it was the cause of Iyke’s setback and disappointment. It confessed that it was the reason he could never marry, stating that it would not allow him to love anyone.

It continued confessing that Iyke was the biggest and that it was only God’s grace that had kept him. As the evil spirit inside him struggled to attack the Wise Man, the supremacy of the Holy Spirit continued to overpower it.

The deliverance continued but the battle was not against flesh and blood; it was against the spiritual entities that had been causing crisis in his life, family, health, career and future.

To the jubilation of the congregation, the name of Jesus Christ prevailed over the evil spirit and Jim Iyke received his freedom. Overwhelmed with what had just happened, Iyke immediately knelt in God’s presence, appreciating His Creator for his miraculous deliverance.

The humility demonstrated by Jim Iyke in submitting himself to the power of God should prompt others in his industry to make the same life-saving choice.

T.B. Joshua Our Refuge

T.B. Joshua- The hope of mankind and the indisputable prove of God's love for humanity.

T.B. Joshua- The hope of mankind and the indisputable prove of God’s love for humanity.

One sure place that has attracted the attention of the world and will continue to do so is the Synagogue Church of all nations (Scoan), the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. The Scoan has been able to command the attention of the high and mighty both locally (that is Nigeria) and internationally owing to God’s awesome manifestation of His power through His anointed servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua. No wonder the number of foreign and local visitors that visits the Synagogue Church of all nations week in week out, continue to soar. These visitors and worshipers cut across, politicians, sportsmen and women, pastors and so on. But, the question is, what possibly could have endeared the prophet of God to their hearts? The miracles, salvation, deliverance….hm mm, I dare to say all of them.

The miracles, signs and wonders that are done in the name of Jesus that we witness often are unparalleled all over the world. The testimonies of people who have received God’s touch through the ministry of prophet T.B. Joshua are so numerous that we have lost count. Thousands of these testifiers are even unable to give their testimonies because, there are scores of them. Certainly, if millions of this generation must believe, they must see proof and sighs that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and that the age of miracle are not over.

Not minding the accolades and praises he has been receiving and still receives from people all over the world owing to God’s awesome unique anointing upon his life, T.B. Joshua has refused to be carried away by such but instead, kept a humble attitude. It is an undisputed fact that ha has all his life exhibited a certain unequal level of humility and piety. He rapes himself with a unique cloth of meekness so much so that one cannot but wonder on encountering him if truly this is the Prophet that president, renowned sportsmen and women, kings and so on are anxiously eager to see. To further depict this, we have very often seen and heard him say that he is only a donkey on which our lord and savior Jesus Christ sits, a dog without teeth and claws but only barks for the masters attention and so many other very humbling assertions all in a bid to humble himself before the whole world who must have though it him more highly.

Also, it is on record that no ministry in the world has given as much as the ministry of T.B. Joshua has given to the widows, orphans and the less privileged all around the world. Everyday, millions of dollars and several bags of rice are given out as assistance to the needy contrary to what is seen in other Christian congregation which are virtually collection centers from members of their congregation. Very sticking however, is the humble disposition T.B. Joshua maintains while giving out these things as most things he bows down and even say thank you for receiving what I have to offer clearly showing that God Almighty is not so much interested in what we have to give but the manner in which we give it.

T.B. Joshua is also widely know not for communicate God’s wisdom into the lives of the people one on one telling them their past, present and future but also, predicting world events accurately with deep insight. An example is the prophesy of the Boston Marathon bombing in the United States where he said America should take care of their homeland security and that he saw bombing taking place and other cases too numerous to mention. This is perhaps an opportunity to call on leaders all over the world to adhere strictly to the voice of God made audible through T.B. Joshua in order to escape this unnecessary loss of lives that could have been avoided if they had taken the warning of the man of God to heart.

Time, T.B. Joshua says will declare who his wrong and who his right. It is obvious that the critics of the ministry are a spent forces as no one can stop the move of God through T.B. Joshua criticism is only a tonic to the man of God’s anointing. We call on those who are wise to hear now and completely embraces the mighty God of T.B. Joshua who is our lord and Savior Jesus Christ. T.B. Joshua is truly a channel of hope where there is despair, a channel of peace where there is conflict, a channel of light where there is darkness, the Savior of the world, a gift to humanity.

John Chi is still in SCOAN (Video proof after seven weeks)

TB Joshua Church Lagos | watchedtbjoshua.wordpress.com

Following TB Joshua’s shocking announcement last week on the exclusion of John Chi from among the wise men, there were widespread rumors over the Internet that John Chi had left SCOAN. The most annoying monger of this rumor is Tbjoshuawatch, this reputed Scoan critic site not only reported that John Chi had left SCOAN, but also predicted that SCOAN would do everything possible to discredit John Chi. Here’s how they precisely stated it;

There have been a number of rumours circulating lately that Wiseman John Chi had left SCOAN, today TB Joshua confirmed it. It is wonderful news that a senior leader in SCOAN has woken up and seen the light, but watch very carefully in the coming days at how SCOAN respond to it. Expect them to do everything possible to discredit him.

Don’t know what else must have inspired such a falsity of report and prophecy except for a depraved mind. We on our own part responded to clarify this false rumor in our last post by stating emphatically that;

John Chi is still in SCOAN and will never leave SCOAN for anywhere else in the world, SCOAN became his home, and will remain his home…

We stated this not as a mouthpiece for the SCOAN, but as what was clearly obvious from TB Joshua’s statement last Sunday on emmanuel tv, it was much of a surprise to us that Tbjoshuawatch couldn’t figure out this much, which was rather too sloppy of them or reveals that they intentionally published such untruth about what they clearly understood. We were further challenged by a prolific commenter who goes by the alias Jesse, to provide video evidence that John chi was still at SCOAN within a week’s ultimatum. Here was his challenge ;

Jesse on August 19, 2013 at 1:58 AM

@ WTBJ,

Give us the evidence that John Chi has not left SCOAN.

POST the statement of John Chi himself with his autograph and recent picture of his abode here that it is not true !

If this is not posted within a week from now, we can safely say all those rumours were true.

As if to relieve us from holding our breath on the appropriate response to such a challenge, TB Joshua yesterday introduced John Chi to the pulpit with a warm hug to address the congregation and viewers worldwide on emmanuel tv. John Chi, making his first public appearance before a live audience after almosts even weeks of absence from active wiseman service, appreciated all and sundry for their prayers and support and made a profound statement when he said ;

You have not seen me for the past six to seven weeks now which you know is not normal, not that I’m sick; I’m healthy, I’m strong in God’s strong hands. We received many emails SAYING I AM SICK, I’VE LEFT THE MINISTRY; NO, THERE IS NOTHING OF SUCH.

Here’s the video below (apologies for the poor picture quality)

John chi still in Scoan

So for Jesse and others who requested for video evidence that John Chi is still in SCOAN, there you have it, and as for Tbjoshuawatch, hope you guys are very proud of yourselves for the journalism reputation you’ve publicly carved.
Finally, we’ll leave you with a recent comment from Mike on our last post for those who are trying to paint TB Joshua black in order to make him look bad on John Chi’s account;

MIKE on August 24, 2013 at 11:36 AM

Those thinking Prophet TB JOSHUA has done something wrong to wise man John Chi are agents of the Devil and the wise man in question should not waste time to listen to them but pray to God to have mercy on him. As a Pastor i feel this is a lesson to so many of us especially the children we raise in the Lord who afterwards became big headed. They refuse counsel because they feel they have gotten it all.

Bravo TB JOSHUA, my prayer for my brother is to humble himself before the mighty hand of God and repent because His anger is for a moment but His mercies endures forever. The truth is no one knew whether there was anything called wise man John Chi, it was God through TB Joshua that raised him; so if God through TB Joshua has dropped him who are you to question the man of God? ,were you there when TB Joshua found that simple Cameronian and worked on him to became a phenomenon that today you should be creating stories? Who knew Racine, Daniel,Harry and Christopher?, it was just their families, they never knew whether these guys ever existed if it where not for God through TB Joshua the man you are critising today even the critic couldn’t have known them. To the Wisemen we all want be used of God like you and admire you so much so don’t waste the opportunity given to you by God. REMEMBER GOD RESIST THE PROUD AND HE GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE. Grace be with you.

MIKE.

Somber News; all nations pray for Wiseman John Chi

TB Joshua Church Lagos | watchedtbjoshua.wordpress.com

There have been growing concerns over wiseman John Chi’s sudden withdrawal from ministering with the other four wise men for nearly seven weeks now, and today, TB Joshua responded to the thousands of emails he had received regarding this question on which millions of emmanuel tv viewers had been pondering.

Surprisingly, in a space of several hours after TB Joshua responded and most annoyingly, TB Joshua’s critics in their usual callous fashion, capitalized on this heartbreaking incident to misrepresent the facts of TB Joshua’s statement on Wise Man John Chi to suit their own selfish motives. You ask how? Well, TB Joshua explained in his statement that wise Man John Chi had been ousted from being a WISE MAN due to repeated importunate behaviour (unstated); further adding that Wiseman John chi has in response stated that “ he would not let God go until God restores him [to wisemanhood]”. TB Joshua then enjoined members and viewers to pray for all of them as ministers and to pray also for Wiseman John chi to be among the wise men God would raise again in addition to the upcoming ones. That was just about it in summary.

But Tbjoshuawatch greatly distorted this story to infer that Wise Man John Chi Has Left SCOAN (A HUGE LIE), and even more distressing now is to see how they immodestly rejoice at this sober news by saying that:

“It is WONDERFUL NEWS that a SENIOR LEADER in scoan HAS WOKEN UP and seen the light”.

If you weren’t convinced of the wickedness and evil disposition of these fault finders at tbjoshuawatch, now is a very good time to be; look at their report distortion of a painful misfortune, and as though that weren’t enough, they further repulsively commended him for his error in these words;

Wiseman John Chi – WE COMMEND YOU for taking the BOLD STEP that you have,… if you wish to make contact with OTHERS who have made THE SAME MOVE AS YOU, email *********, Will do all we can to HELP YOUR TRANSITION.

Alas! I’ve been appalled at many evil deceptions, but none like this and may the Lord severely punish their callous souls (seared with hot iron) for this blatant lie. Who told them that Wiseman
John Chi left SCOAN? Left SCOAN to where? Did TB Joshua say that? Can they transcribe his speech and post exactly the part where he stated that? Emphatically No, because he didn’t say so. How does “ he would not let God go until God restores him” automatically translate to “he has left SCOAN”? John Chi is still in SCOAN and will never leave SCOAN for anywhere else in the world, SCOAN became his home, and will remain his home, just because he’s been ousted from being a Wiseman doesn’t mean he has left SCOAN and also doesn’t mean he can’t get back on his feet. With our faith and collective prayers he will come back, and even stronger than he was before; but this is just to help you envision the evil scheming of TB Joshua’s critics; Most assuredly, they’re now celebrating the reduction on the number of wisemen as they confirmed by the statement in their post that;

“It is WONDERFUL NEWS that a SENIOR LEADER in SCOAN has WOKEN UP and seen the light”.

And make no mistake about it folks, by light they mean blackest darkness to which they belong, No son of light would refer to an apostle’s oust as “WONDERFUL NEWS”, but God has a surprise for them in a short time to come, they can count on it.

A message to TB Joshua watch; Gone are the days when there was almost no media coverage of the happenings in SCOAN, your deceitful tricks to misinform the world about TB Joshua’s statement
on Wise Man John chi can be seen through by everyone now – at least by everyone who has good ears and watched emmanuel tv today. Leave SCOAN, TB Joshua and the Wise Men alone, don’t meddle or you might end up more rotten in hell, you perverted brood of vipers!

Part 2 :TB Joshua Leading Nigeria Religions Faithfull’s For Peaceful Co-existence.

TB Joshua Church Lagos | watchedtbjoshua.wordpress.com

They say, In diversity their is beauty and strength. Practice acceptance and choose peaceful option to resolve conflict. It is hard time the nation of the world and Nigeria in particular to rededicate them self to a tradition of love where our religion and faith unit us and not divide us, where our diversity is our strength and not a reproach. Let stop spreading hatred and division among the people but benevolent, love and peace making, should be our cause for living. This time of challenges, should be an opportunity for everyone irrespective of faith, ethnicity, or race barriers, to come together in one spirit of love and solidarity for the sake of peace. lets allow our diversity fight for us and not against us, with one mind of unionism the nation will triumph.

Nothing take place in this world without a reason. Our life challenges are part of God’s plan to elevate us to glory if properly managed. This implies that there is a script that has already been written by the creator, by which the events of our world unfold, one leading to another, until the end glory is finally reached. The present challenges face by the nation of Nigeria is part of the master plan of the maker of the universe. Every citizen of the nation needs a renewal of heart, everyone need to know the important of living together in peace and harmony, we need to inculcate the spirit of tolerance. The nation need to go through this hard time for her to be taken into glory. This does not implies that God is the cause of evil in the world, Satan is. Man has that self-will to choose from right and wrong (this is what makes us human) but most critical decisions we make in our lives are induced by God’s spirit (the desire to do good) or Satan (the desire to do evil). But, God the supreme who knows the heart and hidden secret of man even that of the devil, knows how to use them for is own glory. According to Prophet TB Joshua “God has all men’s heart in his heart and turns them as he will to serve His purpose contrary to their own first intention”.

The challenges faced by the nation at present is not physical but spiritual. Bokoharam is not really the main problem it is just unfortunate it happen to be the one everyone pays more attention to, their are more to Bokoharam. Sheikh Abubakar Shekau, the alleged leader of the violent sect Boko Haram, is not the cause of killing, stealing and destruction, but an evil spirit which he has no control over. Naturally, he cannot kill, Sheikh is not under the influence of any Islamic ideology but that of an evil spirit. All these are evidence from the thousands of deliverance that take place in Scoan on daily basis. This iota voice of peace may be too hard to comprehend but, the nation should know that their is more beyond our human eyes and reasoning to every challenges the nation is facing right now. As the bible rightly says, we are not fighting against flesh and blood but spirit being (evil spirit). This evil spirit are the cause of killing, stealing and destruction.

Their is no gain in using force and showing hatred for one another, as Martin Luther king Jr. Rightly said “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hatred cannot drive out hatred: only love can do that”. This is confirmed by TB Joshua’s quote “Do good to change the bad you see”. The nation need love as a weapon to fight this present war of hatred. A battle that is won by gun will continue to be sustain by gun; but that won by understanding brings lasting peace, this is why we need love to win this battle. Why war, why not peace, the good life we all hope for cannot be gotten by hatred and accusing fingers but by understanding and love. War cannot bring peace it only bring sorrow and fear of the unknown, only love and understanding bring peace. This is why the world will continue to have no peace because many believes that peace come through war. Were as your so called victory do no good to you and your neighbor, according to TB Joshua “you can win the war both not the economy war”. lets allow love to lead us. Pride, hatred and desperation for political position cannot take us anywhere. Their need to be an inner revolution of the heart, religions leaders have to start inculcating in their followers the need for them to embrace tolerance and peacemaking, let their teaching be a voice for peace, love and reconciliation.

Without love their will be no reasons to live, life will have no meaning, we need love to guide and unite us, let go for peace, it is never too late to give up your prejudices, hatred and tribalism let spread this message of love and peaceful coexistence around the corners of the nation, let spread love for peace to reign in Africa and the world at large.
