Video – TB Joshua’s Message To Bayelsa Governor Elect David Lyon!!!

Bayelsa Governor, David Lyon, tb joshuaDuring the Sunday Service of 1st December 2019, Prophet TB Joshua gave an important message to David Lyon, the newly elected Governor of Bayelsa State, Nigeria. The message delivered is valuable not only for him but indeed for politicians all over…

“Good morning. We cannot leave here without recognising the presence of the Governor-Elect of Bayelsa State, Nigeria – His Excellency, David Lyon. But for your information, this is not the time for testimony. This will come after his inauguration.

“I want to give my brother a message that he will be thinking about after the inauguration. I am not going to say anything that the Spirit of God will not. I will say this and that according to the Spirit.

“He is not a new person to us; he is one of the brethren in this ministry. He is one of us. He has been a hardened believer in the Blood of Jesus.

“Don’t think you are just seeing him… You know me. I always believe in Spirit-politics and I know God will use him.

“Going by the politics in the town today, I want my brother to know that the only way the Bayelsa people will believe that he is the one they voted for is for him to meet the expectation of the Bayelsa people.

“He is banking on your prayer because the best is yet to come. My brother, I am at your service. When I say I am at his service, I mean I am at his service to see that the expectation of the Bayelsa people is executed.

“The only way the Bayelsa people will believe that he is the one they voted for is for him to meet the expectation of the Bayelsa people.

“I want to leave you with a Word of wisdom: It is better to live poorly upon the fruit of God’s goodness than to live to plentifully upon the product of our own sin. Listen to the voice of wisdom but also make use of your brain. Thank you.”

*Mr David Lyon rose from relative obscurity to prominence after the All Progressives Congress candidate ended the People’s Democratic Party’s 20-year reign in Bayelsa State in the recently held governorship election.

Renewed Efforts To “Achieve Peace” In South Sudan In Wake Of TB Joshua’s Visit

tb joshua, scoan, south sudanSeveral new developments in the pursuit of sustainable peace have unfolded in the world’s youngest nation, South Sudan, just weeks after the visit of Nigerian cleric TB Joshua. 

Yesterday, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, announced the recalling of its South Sudan ambassador, Thomas Hushek, in its ongoing “re-evaluation of the U.S. relationship with the Government of South Sudan.”

“The United States stands with the people of South Sudan in their pursuit of peace and will work in partnership with the region to support efforts to achieve peace and a successful political transition in South Sudan,” the statement from the Department of State read.

usa, south sudanPresident Salva Kiir Mayardit and his main opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny agreed during a meeting in Uganda early this month to extend the pre-transitional period for three months after a consensus that the steps viable for a unity government formation were not yet in place.

In addition, several South Sudanese opposition factions who in 2018 did not sign the Addis Ababa peace agreement announced they were ready to re-engage in peace negotiations after a meeting held in Rome.

Nine members of the South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance (SSOMA) gathered behind closed doors for three days in the headquarters of a Catholic charity where they agreed to sign a common communique in which they commited themselves to “political dialogue and negotiations to contribute to the peace process.”

In his message on November 12th 2019, TB Joshua publicly prayed for peace at Juba’s Presidential Palace in the presence of President Salva Kiir Mayardit, his cabinet, military representatives and thousands of local residents.

“Time has come to put our differences behind us,” the Nigerian cleric told the nation’s leaders, stressing that “peace has no price”.

His message clearly struck a chord with the public, having been viewed over one million times on the social media platforms of YouTube and Facebook since the video was uploaded by Emmanuel TV.

The LORD With The Man In The Synagogue For Our Solutions

tb joshua, scoan

Prophet TB Joshua

As students of the Bible, the former rain refers to the first Pentecost, that is the descending of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after His Accession to Heaven. It was a big breakthrough for the earthly Church. It brought them renewed strength, boldness, encouragement, empowerment and growth. The latter rain refers to a future Pentecost. This message comes to mind when prophet TB Joshua, the Bishop and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Lagos Nigeria, recently prophesied of “a cooling rain” and then the coming of Seraphim. We are waiting for these events because TB Joshua has accurate prophesies and speaking what God sends him to.

The prophecy was probably and primarily meant for Nigeria but the entire global system is in complete chaos and disorder at the moment. We see rioting and protesting everywhere on our TV daily. Only a divine intervention can introduce a new peaceful and orderly system. With a dynamic man of God, Prophet TB Joshua, full of faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, awaiting the fulfilment of the coming calmness is with certainty.

It can be recalled that at a time the children of Israel were in similar distress and eventually God sent an angel to Gideon and empowered Gideon on the deliverance mechanism of Israel from their oppressors, (Judges 6). Whereas Gideon armed himself with 32,000 fighting men only 300 trumpeters were used by God. And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place, (Judges 7: 7).

Already many sections of the societies are taking their deep personal problem to The SCOAN for a guarantee solution because of Prophet TB Joshua. This is a personal achievement of an individual prophet of our time. What we pray for also is that all true believers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to come together in one accord for the arrival of God’s latter rain that will bring calmness and genuine world peace. Just as TB Joshua warned the South Sudanese recently, similarly, “It is also time for all Christians to put their differences behind them”. It is only Jesus Christ, the Creator of the entire universe, that has the solution to all the problems, visible or invisible, imagined or unimaginable.

I LOVE YOU JESUS!

TB Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

God measures our lives by our love for Him and for our neighbour. Anyone who does not love his fellow man, whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. This is His command: whoever loves God must also love his fellow man.

If we have all knowledge and ability but have no love, we have nothing. If we make all forms of sacrifices but have no real burning love for God and our fellow man, we have nothing.

Love for fellow man breaks down all barriers; it melts all hindrances. Love has ears to hear the heart. It dissolves prejudices, misunderstanding and suspicion. Love triumphs over our mistreatment, defilement and persecution.

How do you assess your love for God? By the practical things in our lives. We assess our love for God by the number of times we lovingly think of Him daily, by the degree of hunger we have to read His Word. I mean, the amount of time we save to read His Word. The more we love Him, the more precious His Word will become to us. If we love Jesus enough, we will make it our habit to say, “I love You, Jesus”.

When you walk to another room, say, “I love You, Jesus”. When you sit down in your car to drive, say, “I love You, Jesus”. When you stop at a traffic light, say, “I love You, Jesus”. When you bow your head before you eat, say, “I love You, Jesus”. The first person you think about in the morning and the last person you think of in the night should be Jesus.

DON’T LET YOUR SITUATION DICTATE THE DIRECTION OF YOUR PRAYER!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

Remember what happened at the graveside of Lazarus in John 11:38-44. Ordinarily, the situation did not call for thanksgiving but Jesus, being a man of faith was not influenced by the happenings around. What was seen did not influence the direction of His prayer.

When Jesus came to the home of Lazarus, where people were in a mourning mood, where people were crying, Jesus did not allow the general mood to overwhelm Him. In other words, Jesus did not allow the happenings around to dictate the direction of His prayer.

Today, when things are good, our prayer would be that of thanksgiving whereas when things are tough, our prayer would be petitional rather than thanksgiving. Consider the case of Paul and Silas in the prison in Acts 16. Their condition did not call for thanksgiving and praises but as men of faith, the happenings around them did not overwhelm them to murmur and despair.

CLEANSING BEFORE COMFORT!

Tb Joshua,  Scoan

How do we ask for forgiveness? We must ask for forgiveness in sincerity and humility of heart. This is what God requires. “Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow” (Psalm 51:6-7).

Remember Psalm 51:6 reads ‘inward parts’, meaning the innermost being. This is the heart – the communication point for the Holy Spirit (Romans 9:1). If we are to ask for forgiveness, we should ask for forgiveness in the ‘inner part’, not in the form of fasting and praying or waving of hands in worship without a thorough reformation of heart and life.

What David was saying was that it was only after a thorough cleansing that he would be able to experience the joy of salvation. How do we then come before God in sincerity and humility of heart? We can come before Him when we ask Him not to comfort us until He cleanses us from our sin. In other words, we are seeking first the Kingdom of God, which is the salvation of our soul (Matthew 6:33).

How TB Joshua Reconciled the Son of Liberia’s President with The Man Who Murdered His Father!

Why This Reconciliation Contributed To Peace In Liberia…

Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua has just returned from a peace-brokering mission in South Sudan where he led President Salva Kiir Mayardit and his cabinet in prayer for peace at the nation’s Presidential Palace.

However, records reveal this is not the cleric’s first intervention when it comes to brokering peace on a national scale.

yormie johnson, warlordIn November 2000, Joshua oversaw a heartfelt reconciliation that touched the nation of Liberia between Samuel Doe Jr and the man responsible for gruesomely slaughtering his father, Prince Yormie Johnson.

In the height of Liberia’s brutal civil war, Johnson – then a rebel leader – captured President Samuel Doe in Monrovia and tortured him publicly before executing him in footage seen on news reports around the world.

“Every night I went to sleep, I prayed that one day God would give me to the opportunity to meet this man and kill him to revenge the death of my father,” Samuel Doe Jr publicly admitted during his visit to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).

Doe Jr said he harbored this “grudge” for ten long years. Unbeknownst to him and his mother Nancy who came to seek prayers at The SCOAN, the former warlord had ‘repented’, become a Christian and was in attendance at Joshua’s church.

Spotting Johnson amidst the large church crowd, Doe Jr said he felt his blood “run cold” and looked for a weapon to enact revenge.

“I felt like running inside the kitchen to pick up a knife,” he recounted. However, Doe Jr was ‘supernaturally restrained’ from carrying out his vengeful intentions as he was “under the control of the Holy Spirit”.

After publicly confessing what was ‘hindering his salvation’, Joshua counselled the Doe family about the need for forgiveness, after which he prayed for them.

“If Jesus can forgive us of our sins, then who am I to hold a grudge against a child of God,” Samuel announced to rapturous applause from the congregation.

Prince Yormie Johnson then came forward from the crowd and the duo warmly embraced, subsequently joined by Liberia’s former First Lady Nancy Doe and TB Joshua.

In a meeting the next week, Johnson revealed the reconciliation went beyond just the two families but extended to the warring tribes in Liberia.

“This reconciliation will go a long way to unite our two ethnic groups. The war in Liberia started between us and the reconciliation will have to begin with us,” he revealed.

Liberia has enjoyed peace nationwide for over fifteen years and is steadily cementing its status as a growing democracy in West Africa.

Prince Yormie Johnson has since returned to Liberia as a Senator and plays an active role in his country’s politics.

In the run-up to Liberia’s last elections, Johnson visited The SCOAN with George Weah, eventually choosing to endorse the football legend, which proved pivotal to his eventual ascension to Liberia’s Presidency.

TB Joshua also played an important reconciliatory role in Tanzania in the wake of the divisive 2015 elections which saw John Magufuli emerge victorious.

Joshua visited the East African nation, holding extensive meetings with both President Magufuli and opposition leader Edward Lowassa, both of whom had previously visited his church in Lagos.

Citizens acknowledged Joshua’s visit significantly reduced the palpable tensions that existed in the aftermath of the disputed elections and restored peace to the nation.
