GOD OFTEN BRINGS GOOD OUT OF EVIL!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

God’s providence often contradicts His purpose; His divine wisdom tends to contradict the course of natural events. When God is executing His plan in our lives, He designs and arranges events which continue to unfold until His purpose is revealed. When we look at the way and manner God designs and arranges events in the life of His servants, you would discover this truth. Take Joseph as an example. Because Joseph was to be a blessing to his people, he had to taste poverty. Because Joseph was to be a source of freedom for his people, he had to taste imprisonment. What are you going through now? Remember Peter. Because Peter was to be a blessing to his people, he had to taste hardship, disappointment, setback, failure and want.

God often brings good out of evil and promotes the designs of His providence, even by the sin of men. For an example, the young Joseph had to go through a lot of tribulation and affliction for the purpose of God to be revealed in his life. His brothers’ intention was to starve him to death in the barren pit, whereas, God’s purpose for his life was to use him as an instrument for providing food for his brothers in times of great famine. God overruled his brothers’ evil designs in order to serve His purpose of making Joseph an instrument to save many people. Joseph said to his brothers, ‘As for you, you thought evil against me, but God meant it unto good so that many people might be saved’. The persecution we suffer in the hands of our detractors causes us to be to be known. Therefore, no trouble, no matter how great the trouble is, should prevent you from praying.

Coronavirus: There is An Error in Advanced Technology

tb joshua, scoan, emmauel tv, coronavirusTB Joshua answers question on the present challenges the world is going through:

QUESTION: Sir, why do we have a terrible time like this?

ANSWER: “You know I am not a politician. I just have to give you as the Spirit gave me because I received this message four days ago from the Holy Spirit. World leaders and scientists know what they are doing; they know what is happening. That is why they keep promoting fear and panic. Before coronavirus, there were deaths – but they never mentioned the number of deaths to us. Now, we begin to count the number of ‘death’ instead of counting the number of ‘life’.

“They know the gravity of the situation. The whole thing has to do with error in advanced technology. You know, I am not a scientist. The whole thing has to do with error, mistake in advanced technology. Now innocent people are dying, especially the elderly. Nothing is worth the blood of innocent souls, innocent people. There is no acceptable excuse for doing this.

“Now we have seen what it means to be locked down in a ‘concentration camp’. This is an opportunity for our world leaders, our scientists to look at the trouble spots in the world, e.g., Syria so that the displaced people can return to their countries. If not, I am seeing God’s anger. Let us abide by what the Bible says in 2 Chronicles 7:14. I am a minister of God; I am not a politician. I should not go too far from my profession. I should not speak what God has not asked me to say. I will leave the rest but I will let you know what is to come.” – TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua on Coronavirus and God Remembering Noah

Coronavirus, tb joshua, scoan, faith healing

Coronavirus

It is very hard to imagine any act of nature that would be greater than a worldwide flood that occurred in the time of Noah.  The details of the story are in the Bible (Genesis chapters 7-9). I recommend that all Bible students read the story of Noah. The Lord wants us to know what happened and how it happened, and relating this to our daily walk with Him, especially this COVID-19 pandemic era.

Then God remembered Noah and every living thing and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided (Genesis 8:1).  At the due time, God sent a wind that blew across the whole earth and caused the floodwaters to begin to recede. This tells us about God’s authority over the forces of nature, over COVID-19, over Ebola, over smallpox, over our finances, our families, our health, over time and seasons. He is God above all.

Prophet TB Joshua, of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), prophesied recently on COVID-19, especially that the pandemic would end from March 27, 2020. At this very moment, this date he gave with the prophecy, is getting some section of the media confused and thinking that the prophet may not be right after all. But when we read Noah’s experience with the flood, when God remembered him, and when eventually Noah finally stepped out to the dry ground, Prophet TB Joshua may be correct. Whenever Prophet TB Joshua is making a prophecy, we encourage that people should always remember that at those times, he won’t be Mr TB Joshua. So let us always seek God’s interpretations for our circumstances and believe His prophets. We need the knowledge the prophets of God would provide us in this Dark Age when people are desperate and more interested in averting economic ruin rather than believing and obeying God’s word. People of the world prefer swallow solution/prescriptions that have worse side effects than their original problem. This is why panic, fear and shortcuts become normal actions for many.

We don’t know much about Noah’s emotions this period he was alone in the ark but the Bible described him as a man of faith (Hebrew 11:7). With instruction from God, Noah built the ark by faith, went in by faith, endured the ark quarantine time for over a whole year by faith, and came out of the ark courageously by faith. God’s true prophets would speak to us in parables. The press may be critical about the prophet, but they should appreciate him in order to get the best out of him, and building a strong relationship with him. In Noah’s day, the community probably ignored and mocked him. But one day Noah went into the ark with his extended family and animals. Seven days after the rain started and rained for 40 days and 40 nights. The point to note here is that it took some 150 days for the flood to abate after God remembered Noah. Hence we mustn’t lose the significant lesson from Prophet TB Joshua’s prophecy that our flood has started to abate but may need longer time for us to get out of the ark, like in Noah’s days. God may not want us to know the exact day so that we can continue to trust and obey Him. If we know that day the Lord of the vineyard will come, then where is the necessity for faith?

We should learn from the story of Noah that when affliction has done its appointed work, when COVID-19 may have run its appointed period, it will be removed from us. Whether it be sickness or ill fortune or bad circumstances or hateful opposition or even truly bad weather, when God’s purposes have been served, the hard times will go away. So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. All the animals and all the creatures (Genesis 8:18-19). But Noah came out gradually, using the Raven test, the Dove test, and eventually, God ordered him out. The rains have stopped but if we come out of the ark too soon we could still be washed away with the floods. Noah was patient and gradual in his approach, depending on instructions from God, and so should we. Stay safe in your homes and ready, like Noah, to build an altar of sacrifice and worship to God at the end.

Sunday Services Gathering at the SCOAN with Prophet TB Joshua

scoan, tb joshuaAcross the world today Sunday 22, March 2020 the gathering of different peoples from the diverse religious and ethnic background is being missed at the Synagogue, Church of all Nations (SCOAN). The cost to the international community is huge because of the healing, teaching, prophecy, counselling, fellowship, etc, that goes on at the SCOAN Arena of Liberty. Distant viewers, sick people in various hospital beds, prisoners, families and other communities, especially where open evangelism is disallowed, have combined as a great overflow Church under SCOAN. We must attend to them and Emmanuel.tv partners must note this area.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has locked down cities, nations, and their economic, causing fear and panic, creating new social concepts like social isolation and social distancing, is responsible. Prophet TB Joshua has taken to educating the public on the pandemic a lot earlier and prophesying its eventual end. But a faithless and unbelieving generation like our generation would prefer to think that they are in charge to run our lives. The result of government orders, without putting the opinion of God as a basis, can often be misleading, creating fear, panic and killing more people.

There are various Sunday Assemblies, religious and non-religious gatherings around the world today. For example, Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans in January 2013 in London, England founded a non-religious Sunday Assembly gathering mostly for people who want a similar communal experience to a religious church. They probably hated the Church and wanted their world. In Nigeria and many other communities, Muslims gather on Sunday. These gatherings should be affected by the coronavirus following government orders. We know that our prophet TB Joshua is law-abiding and would normally comply with Civic orders excepting those directly affecting our faith in Christ Jesus like in the days of Daniel.

Nevertheless, the Sunday Gathering is not man-made but very scriptural. For example in 1 Corinthians 16: 2, “On the first day of the week, each of you should set aside some income and save it to the extent that God has blessed you so that a collection will not have to be made when I come”. Even concerning the so-called coronavirus, many hands are working to eradicate the pandemic. The prophets, pastors, and others must be allowed to pray along. Those of us in mathematical sciences we are studying the model of transmission using an index to locate those with direct or indirect contacts. Perhaps it is the Church that should play its role in the society for which many governments have lost trust in.

For Prophet TB JOSHUA and SCOAN, we expect normality in service but without the usual crowd where the entire world will be their overflowing assemblies. The point is that people in the society have placed more confidence in SCOAN of TB Joshua than on their respective governments. A “Live Service” may help the sick, the fearful, the lonely, the rejected and the hopeless. The point is that there is power backing the Word coming out of the mouths of holy men and women working in the SCOAN, and of course in all living Church of Christ. We must work consciously on these overflowing gatherings that put their faith on Christ through SCOAN, whether or not there is a coronavirus.

GOD’S TIME IS THE BEST!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN, Emmanuel Tv

Today, our hearts are so taken up by worldly considerations that we are impatient to recognise the fact that there is an appointed time for everything. This is why we try to move the hands of the clock forward by hook and crook. In order to beat the gun, we kill, join cults, steal and destroy.

Assuming Jesus had been impatient when his brothers urged Him to show off in public before the appointed time, He may have been killed by His enemies who were looking for Him at all costs (John 7:3-8). The same thing happens to us today. When we are impatient, we tend to disregard the fact that there is a time for everything.

Assuming Jesus was impatient to perform publicly, He may have failed to turn the water into wine. Assuming Jesus was impatient when His mother urged Him to turn water into wine, He may have failed altogether. But He simply said, “My time has not yet come”, knowing that there is an appointed time for everything (John 2:1-10). When it was time to die, He told his disciples, “The hour is near” (Matthew 26:45).

We all know that when it is time to start a race, everybody waits for the blast of the gun or the sound of the whistle; but in our daily lives, the opposite is the case. In an attempt to beat the gun, we discover that we are the worse for it; we pay dearly for it.

If any person beats the gun, that person would be called back to begin afresh, while others are still waiting patiently for the sound of the gun. This is what we mean by the saying, “More haste, less speed”, meaning that if you are in a haste to achieve something, you are likely to make costly mistakes that would pull you back, if not down. This is exactly what is happening today. Always remember – God’s time is the best!

Botswana Best Student Gets TB Joshua Scholarship

A Form 2 high-flyer Naomi Higgins, who passed her Junior Certificate Examination (JCE) with flying colours, has received a tertiary scholarship from Nigerian televangelist Temitope Balogun Joshua, commonly known as Prophet TB Joshua.

Higgins joins thousands of students worldwide who have received scholarship ranging from primary to tertiary education sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua, founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and Emmanuel TV partners.

The 14-year-old brilliant student will be the second from Botswana to benefit from the same initiative following Mary-Jean Nleya who was sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners to pursue her Bachelor of Laws and attained Magna Cum Laude at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

Nleya was also sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua to pursue her Master’s Degree at Harvard University under the Harvard Law School and was also given an opportunity with the help of the Prophet to get an internship at International Criminal Court at The Hague in the Netherlands.

Higgins, who is currently doing her Form 4 at Selebi-Phikwe Senior Secondary School (SPSSS) was the only student at Nxakato JSS who attained grade A even though she sat for JCE whilst doing Form 2.

In an interview with Mmegi, Higgins said that words were not enough to describe her happiness when she received an invitation to SCOAN by Prophet TB Joshua.

She said that during her first encounter with Prophet TB Joshua she was shivering and all in tears.

She added: “Prophet TB Joshua is a holy man and everything at SCOAN was godly. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet him in person.”

Higgins further said that she was still shocked that everything that happened to her in the past weeks started off with a small achievement of her passing JCE.

She hopes to be a cardiologist and said that to her surprise during her one-on-one with Prophet TB Joshua, he offered her a tertiary scholarship to study what she wants when she finishes her BGCSE.

She also said that Prophet TB Joshua also appointed Nleya to be her mentor, role model and contact person for the prophet. Higgins clarified that: “Nleya was the one who showed Prophet TB Joshua the article.

She is the same person who is going to assist me to apply for Harvard University or any other university, which is best in Cardiology across the globe.” She added that the scholarship would cover everything including tuition fees, living allowance and accommodation.

She also mentioned that Prophet TB Joshua gave her $3, 000 (about P33,000) so that she can purchase educational material to help her prepare for the BGCSE final examination. The intelligent girl was so determined to study harder at school because there was no way she was going to miss an opportunity to go to Harvard University.

About her stay in Nigeria, Higgins said she was over the moon because it has been her long term goal to be part of the congregants at SCOAN. She said that she would always cherish the moment because she was treated like a very important person (VIP) and accommodated in an executive suite just like in a five-star hotel.

The brilliant student described their experience at SCOAN as something out of this planet especially, the part where they visited the spiritual prayer mountain. The ever smiling student said to make the journey to SCOAN even memorable was the part where she had to board on an aeroplane for the first time in her life.

She said that she would always thank God for everything, day and night, for making her dream come true earlier than expected. Higgins’s mother Ruth Higgins, who was equally elated, thanked Mmegi for writing an article about her brilliant daughter.

She said it was through the article that her daughter was discovered by the Prophet TB Joshua who offered her the tertiary scholarship. She further said that if her daughter finishes her Form 5, provided she performs well, she will go to any University of her choice and Prophet TB Joshua will wholly cover the scholarship.

Ruth added: “I don’t know how to describe the feeling as it is out of this world. The ball is in her court now to work extra harder in order to pass her BGCSE.” The delighted mother said that the bursary gives them assurance as parents that their daughter ‘s dream of studying Cardiology at Harvard University would come true provided she meet the University entry credentials. Ruth was certain that her daughter would pass BGCSE with merit because she is a hard worker and well-disciplined girl.

She expressed gratitude to Prophet TB Joshua for awarding Naomi the tertiary education scholarship and to God for giving her abundance of blessings. Ruth also thanked one of the beneficiaries of Prophet TB Joshua’s education bursary Nleya who discovered her daughter.

She shared that they learnt that Nleya also received scholarship from Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners years back when she was just an ordinary visitor at SCOAN. She also described Nleya as a guardian angel who made her daughter’s dream turn into reality. Naomi’s father, Kenneth Higgins said that he was extremely overjoyed of his daughter’s achievements. He said that his daughter’s achievements have brought admiration to his family.

Kenneth said: “This is what all fathers dream of and this is what we want for our families. I give all the honour and glory to the almighty God and Prophet TB Joshua for this grace from God. I am very much humbled by the kind gesture.” He said that Naomi’s achievements would go a long way in motivating her fellow peers on the importance of taking education seriously and to aim high and reach great heights.
