Coronavirus – The Time for World Humility

coronavirus, china, tb joshuaThe miraculous testimonies coming out of China of the rapid healings and zero cases of locally affected patience in Wuhan and low transmission of the coronavirus, after the Prophecy of the man of God, Prophet TB Joshua on the showers of rain that will wipe away every fear of the unknown, which include coronavirus is a testament to the fact that God is already in control of this coronavirus epidemic that is causing fear around the world.

Truly the Chinese were very effective and transparent in their handling of the virus and the world is celebrating them for the work well done, but we need to acknowledge the fact that the good news coming out of China is a product of God’s grace. Remember there is no clinical cure to the virus yet. The situation in China is being under control because of God’s intervention and this every other nation need to emulate.

Europe, especially Italy is now the epicentre for the coronavirus. With more death compare to China where the virus started.

This is the time for us to run to God for help amidst this global epidemic. There is nothing to be ashamed of. An extraordinary situation requires extraordinary actions. Genuine Faith needs to be activated and the world needs to humble themselves and be awaking to the reality that God is supreme above all.

The Prophet always remind us that in every situation, God has something to say. There is nothing that happened in this world that is a coincidence, everything happened for a reason. This is why the world needs to understand that this is not a time for world politics of accusations and counter-accusation. This is a time for us to do a proper self-examination on our relationship with God and others around us.

We need to know that this is a delicate time. This is not a time for arrogance because it will only bring about self-destruction. Anybody can be a victim, irrespective of the class or status.

No one can stand on the way of God, His purposed will be achieved whether we like it or not, all we need to do is to humbly come to him and asked for His mercy. The grace is available and the healing is already done. Just come to him and partake in that healing grace.

The world has to seek His face in the sincerity of hearth if we want this healing that we are seeing manifesting in China to go through other parts of the world rapidly especially, those that are presently the epicentre of this epidemic.

God is not a liar, His words are true and sure. It is left for us to claim it to ourselves in humility, righteousness and Faith.

New morning water,tbjoshua

The New Morning Anointing Water

Due to the alarming rate of death coming out of Italy and other affected nations around the world coupled with the fact that there is still no vaccine that can fight this virus, we are still insisting that the government of those affected nations in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), should come to the SCOAN to officially other for the Anointed Water that has been affected by God, for healing and deliverance.

Perhaps, this continual call may seem foolish to many around the world and even opposed by the sceptic, unbelievers and the Satanist ideologist. But we should always put it in mind that, the vicissitude of time will tell who is indeed foolish and wise.

MAY GOD’S MERCY NEVER DEPART FROM US…AMEN!

South Sudan Forms Unity Government as TB Joshua’s Prophecy Comes to Pass

South Sudan peaces, tb joshuaSaturday 22nd February 2020 is set to go down as a historic date in South Sudan as a unity government between once bitter rivals President Salva Kiir Mayardit and opposition leader Riek Machar finally comes to fruition. 

“I want to tell the people of South Sudan that all the changes that are taking place right now are to bring peace and not changes that will bring conflict again because we are tired of conflict,” Kiir announced as he officially appointed Machar as Vice President, one of five to be appointed to the new government.

For months, the government and former rebels were at an impasse over the number of states in South Sudan as Kiir unilaterally increased the number to 32 during the recent civil war, which resulted in the deaths of over 400,000 people.

After failing to meet the two previous deadlines to form a unity government, fears of a resurgence in violence were palpable.

However, Kiir chose to compromise “for the sake of peace” and reverted to the original ten states, paving the way for the unity government’s formation.

This historic settlement, a huge step towards lasting peace in the world’s youngest nation, was ‘prophesied’ during the recent visit to Juba by Nigerian Pastor TB Joshua on November 12th 2019.

tb joshua, scoan, south sudan“I am here to prophesy to the nation. If I am a prophet, this will not go without fulfilment,” Joshua boldly declared in a national address at the Presidential Palace, broadcast live on South Sudan’s state television.

“This country is going to enter a new beginning – whether you like it or not, whether I like it or not,” he continued, insisting that “your agreement does not matter to what God is about to do” and “you cannot stand in the way of the Lord”.

With Kiir and his entire cabinet in attendance during the address, the cleric stressed that “peace has no price” and counselled leaders to overcome all divisions and differences.

“Time has come for us to put our differences behind us. Our leaders, we should overcome our divisions and agree to work together – for the good of this country,” he declared, before leading the leaders in prayer for peace.

Social media in South Sudan was awash with news of Joshua’s visit, with many citizens insisting his prayers and prophetic message were pivotal in the peace process.

“It is the high time South Sudanese should embrace Prophet TB Joshua for his prophecy has come to pass about our nation,” wrote Gum Thany on Facebook.

“Imagine our leaders made historical concessions for the first time just for the sake of peace and this is being coupled with showers of rain in Juba in the middle of dry season,” he added.

Numerous attempts in the past to bring peace between Kiir and Machar proved unsuccessful – including the time the duo were received by Pope Francis in Vatican City where he famously kissed the warring leaders feet.

South Sudanese citizens are hopeful that the new unity government will usher in an era of peace, development and stability.

EVEN IN DARKNESS, LIGHT SHINES FOR THE UPRIGHT!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

The blessing of God enriches the soul for eternity while that given by the world enriches the body temporarily. The blessing given by God is free – no condition attached; while that given by the world is conditional – that is, there are strings. The blessing of God does not need to be serviced. If we were to service the sun, rain, air and all other free gifts of God, how much do you think we would pay to get the air we breathe?

Remember how much it costs you to look good in the eyes of the world. Remember how much it costs you to acquire your makeup kits. Sometimes you need to make costly sacrifice to service whatever blessing you receive from the world; God’s blessing does not add sorrow while that given by the world has sorrow attached (Psalm 37:25).

Blessed is the man who follows the path of God – even in darkness, light shines for the upright. They are strong because they rely upon God for vindication, upholding, provision, stronghold, refuge and salvation. They persist in doing good, not allowing external pressure to change their conduct. If we make God our heart’s delight, we shall have our heart’s desire.

The blessing of the world is a fading thing and so is the life itself on which it is bestowed. As the blessing is fading away, so is the life that carries it.

Prophet TB Joshua Relocate to the mountain to seek God’s face ahead of 2020

tb joshua, mountian, 2020 prayer

Prophet TB Joshua

Foremost and internationally recognized Man of God, Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of Synagogue Church of all nations(SCOAN) has relocated to the mountain in order to seek God’s face and direction for 2020.

This was announced during a live service at his church in Lagos by one of his ministers , Prophet Racine, who read a letter to the congregation that cut across all nations and explaining why TB Joshua was not in service .

The minister who was with Prophet TB Joshua earlier at the mountain stated that he and some other ministers had to return from the mountain for the church service but the man of God had to stay back because God has not released him and also because of the things he saw ahead of 2020.

He said even though he isn’t in their midst physically, he was there spiritually because there is need for him to seek God’s face towards the coming year.

“The man of God Prophet TB Joshua will not be in our midst physically because he is at the prayer mountain. Take note of the word ‘physically’ – in body he will not be here but he is with us in spirit.

We too were at the mountain. We only returned for the service – but he remained behind. He is concerned about all that is about to happen in the New Year ahead around the world’’

He did a flashback to January 2019 when the Man Of God went to the mountain to pray and seek God’s sake for the year, making it known that all what God showed him came to pass.

“Remember what God showed him in the same mountain at the beginning of this year – what would happen. Now he is back there to know what will happen next year. Let us listen to what God showed him.

“This has been played thousands of times on Emmanuel TV. When it was playing at the beginning from January 4th, you were not taking it seriously. Today, you and I will agree that this year is so fearful’’

Afterwards, a video of Prophet TB Joshua on the mountain was played. It was reinstated that the man of God has the whole world in mind and it was due to this reason that he was absent from the church service.

Physically challenged Nigerians Applaud TB Joshua’s Scholarship Scheme

pysically challengeBy Kayode Fasua in Abeokuta

The Joint National Association of Persons with Disability (JONAPWD) has commended the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T, B Joshua, for giving scholarships to persons with disability in various Nigerian universities and polytechnics.

The body gave the commendation through the Head of Persons with Disability in Ogun State, Mr. Abacha Adebesin, during an interview with THISDAY.

Adebesin, who conveyed the gratitude of his colleagues nationwide to Joshua, said other well-to-do Nigerians and clerics of big religious organisations should borrow a leaf from the prophet’s “large heart and passion for the less-privileged.”

He valued the scholarship so far received from the cleric by his colleagues in Ogun State in recent time at over N15 million.

“He has done so much for the physically challenged persons in this country that we have lost count. He has been consistent in giving scholarship to our members, besides other forms of assistance.

“In fact, I am a beneficiary of TB Joshua’s scholarship scheme, as he paid my tuition fees twice, at both the Degree and Master’s Degree levels.

“He has also done so much to rehabilitate and provide jobs for the lame, the blind, and others with various forms of disability,” Adebesin recalled.

Commending Joshua as well, Mr. Salami Lukeman, a blind Law student from the University of Lagos, said the man of God footed his tuition fees both at undergraduate and Master’s degree levels.

Another Law student, Mr. Adegbesin Abiodun, who is physically challenged, was also full of praises for the cleric for paying his school fees.

In the same vein, Mrs Oyinyechi Ibeabuchi, a Master’s degree student in Economics at the Abia State University, who is lame, was excited at not only getting funds to pay her tuition fees through the SCOAN, but that she also got a wheelchair and a brand new car from the cleric. “I’m flabbergasted,” Ibeabuchi exclaimed.

But lamenting the plight of the physically challenged persons in Nigeria, Adebesin, who is also the supervisor for persons with disability at the Justice Development and Peace Commission in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the recently signed The Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities (Prohibition) law does not end up as a lip service.

“While we appreciate President Buhari for signing the bill to protect our interest into law, we would want him to take a step further by making tangible budgetary allocations for the National Commission for Persons with Disabilities, to enable it implement its mandate for the physically challenged.

“All over the country, most people living with disabilities are not being employed, but the Peace and Development Commission has now waded in through my department, that for every employment, at least one must go to a person with disability,” he stressed.

“We are happy that the President passed the bill for the persons living with disability into law last April but we are still to see the law in action; indeed, we want to be given our dues and equal rights as Nigerian citizens,” he stressed.

The new law, among others, stipulates a five-year transitional period for modifying public buildings, structures, and automobiles to make them accessible and usable for people with disabilities.

The law also enshrines the establishment of a National Commission for Persons with Disabilities responsible for ensuring that physically challenged persons have access to housing, education and healthcare.

Collapsed SCOAN Guest House: Expert Exposes “Mischievous” Report By LASG

Scoan Building collapes

Defendants in the case of the collapsed Synagogue Church Guest house closed their case at the weekend with the cross examination of their last witness in a Lagos High Court sitting at Igbosere on Friday 20th December 2019.

During resumed proceedings, the court heard further evidence that the mode of collapse of the church guest house had no characteristics of a building which collapsed due to structural defects.

Professor Patrick Nwankwo stated this while being crossed examined by the Lagos State Director of Public Prosection, Mr Yequob Oshoala.

Nwankwo, a Professor of Structural Engineering and Construction Materials, gave his expert analysis as a witness at the instance of Engr Oladele Ogundeji, who is facing trial for the collapsed building as its Supervising Engineer.

“Any defective building – whether emanating from under or over reinforcement or poor constructional materials – will have a ductile or gradual type of collapse,” he explained.

“This was not the case with the collapsed Synagogue church guest house. The frames, beams, columns would not all have collapsed at the same time; it can only happen by some external forces,” he revealed.

While responding to questions from the DPP, Professor Nwankwo said he was motivated to investigate the collapsed Synagogue church building due to its unusual mode of collapse, coupled with his professional and academic concern.

“I wanted to ensure any reports I submitted to the court were thorough and did not compromise the integrity of my profession,” he explained.

Professor Nwankwo faulted the initial report presented to the court by Lagos State Government – which relied heavily on projections from Orion Design Software – which suggested structural failure caused the collapse.

As an expert in that particular software, Nwankwo revealed the interpretation presented to the court in its earlier hearings was “completely wrong” and could even be termed “mischievous”.

“Since the calculations were wrong, the report’s findings cannot be relied upon,” he explained, adding that the report he submitted actually met the “required code of practice in Nigeria”.

Earlier in the cross examination by Mr Oluseye Diyan, Chief Efe Akpofure SAN and Mrs Titi Akinlawon SAN, the erudite scholar insisted that the construction of the building met with appropriate international standards guiding the industry.

The building, which tragically collapsed on September 12th 2014, served as a guest-house for foreign pilgrims visiting TB Joshua’s popular church in Ikotun-Egbe.

Justice Lateef Lawal-Akapo adjourned the case to January 24, 2020

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.
