COMFORT IN AFFLICTION – TB JOSHUA

scoan tb joshua

Prophet TB Josua

Because Peter was to be a blessing to his people, he had to taste hardship, disappointment, setback, failure and want. What are you going through now? What you are going through may be part of the events that would reveal God’s purpose for your life. Remember, there is something far more important than whatever situation you are passing through – your dream and goals.

Are you intimidated in some way? There is something far more important than rejection – your dream and goals. Men of purpose do not concentrate on where they are now, their focus, aim and desire is on their destination.

Where are you now? What situation are you in now? Are you in abject poverty? Remember, the man that is poor is not the man that has no money but one without a dream. So, remember your dream. In other words, they are poor that have no dream.

When Joseph was in the dry pit, he asked himself, “Where is my dream? I know this is not where I belong!” This awareness comforted him while in the dry pit, Potiphar’s house and the prison.

In our spiritual walk with God, there are good and hard times. As Christians, when things tend to go contrary to our expectation, we remember our dream; our dream is our director, direction, guide and road map. Our dream imparts strength to endure and manage our present situation. Our dream imparts in us the spirit of mind management, material management, human management and self control.

What situation are you in now? Where is your dream, as a man of faith? Remember, faith is based on the happenings of the future state, which God has prepared – an everlasting mansion. I mean, as a man of faith, our minds should be trained to keep quiet, when everything else is unquiet. As a man of faith, you can be happy even when everything around you seems to suggest that there is no hope or future – you can still find occasions to rejoice in the Lord.

Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2) If He has gone to prepare a place for us, He would prepare us for it.

GOD’S TIME IS THE BEST!

tb joshua scoan

Prophet TB Joshua

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.

The game of football is the best way of explaining the philosophy of life. At the football field, when you are in a haste to score, you are likely to break the rules by going off-side and that would make the referee to blow against you thereby causing some setback to your team. When such things happen, you find yourself from the position of an attacker to that of a defender and if care is not taken, you could suffer a greater loss.

Many who were in the position of leadership are now in the position of followership because they were pulled back because of their quest to make it quick.

Many have touched money by hook or crook in the past, but today they are back to square one trying to make a new beginning, while others pay dearly with their own lives and those of their close ones. This is what happens in an attempt to beat God’s appointed time.

On the other hand, when it is God’s appointed time for one to make it, I mean to possess one’s possession, there are no strings or conditions attached. They would come when they should. I mean, they would come when the time comes – even in the face of life’s threats and uncertainties, even in the face of envy, jealousy, hatred, persecution and the like.

Remember, when God sets a time for a man, He guards it jealously. Because we are impatient; I mean, because we cannot see beyond our present circumstance, we begin to seek shortcuts, we begin to beat the gun, that is, trying to beat God’s appointed time. People of God, don’t be in haste, they would come when the time comes.

YOUR PAST IS OVER!

scoan tb joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Unless you conquer the past, you cannot focus on your future. If your past must be over, you have to outgrow it. In other words, if you desire to focus on your future, you must first conquer your past. You must be forward looking because you cannot look in different directions at the same time. The One who determines our future is our Lord Jesus Christ. He does not consult our past to determine our future. If He were to do so, we would not be here today.

Satan discusses our past because that is the only information he has about us. Each time we want to focus on our future, satan is there to remind us of our unworthy past in order to provoke our guilt and tarnish our future thereby. He has no other business than to derail us from our course. This is why the Bible warns us against taking journeys into the past; it is very dangerous.

Modern Christianity in the Face of Homosexuality and Transgender

God loves Homosexual (persons) but hate Homosexuality (Sin)

The contemporary world that is believed to be civilized seems to want to do away with the naturally acceptable norms because of the so-called ‘freedom of life and expressions’ in man-made laws that are contrary to the standard of God principles. Humankind does not need man-made laws to be free and whole because true freedom naturally comes from God. Laws made by God fearing nations are supposed to protect God’s natural standard of living and not to alter it. This is why it is always advisable when a truly Christian nation wants to make new laws, they should use the Bible as a standard to check the laws and if the new law goes contrary to the standard of the scripture such law cannot stand. Because the natural principle of God laws cannot give way to man’s made laws. Laws made by men can only stand the test of time when it conforms to the ultimate law of God.

The world needs to know that the life we are living is not ours, God created us for His glory and not for us to defile our God given nature by indulging in acts that are contrary to His original pattern of creation. It seems most of us are trying to reshape and rebuild the world to suit our own demonic view point. The way the world establishment is promoting and forcing the homosexual and transgender issue “down our throats” calls for concern to any right thinker.

Sexuality, as created by God, was supposed to be between the male and the female genders and not of the same gender. There is nothing normal about a man having affection for his fellow man and a woman having affection for her fellow woman. It is not right and anybody that is making it seems right, needs a self-examination, including if that person is a so called ‘pastors or a bishop’. No true Child of God will endorse homosexuality as normal. As Christians, our duty is to educate the world on God’s standard and help transform the gays and lesbians to the natural way God originally created them.

It is so wrong for any church to publicly endorse and encourage these acts. I heard in some country, weddings of the same sex are conducted in holy premises and the supposed weddings are said to be officiated by a priest. This is so absurd. You should not because you want to gain favour from the world compromise your integrity. An honourable man cannot soil his integrity for anything. He will prefer to die for what he believes than to live for what he doesn’t believe in. Most of us are afraid to speak and stand for the truth because of fear: the fear of death, prison dungeon, persecution and rejection.

The world establishment will always be against the Church. Remember we are a representative of an opposite Kingdom, the Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of darkness will always wage war against us. Christ Jesus planted the Church in the world as a Light. We don’t compromise with darkness – we fix the errors in the world and correct the mistakes. Homosexuality and transgenderism are an act of error that needs to be fixed by the Church and not for the church to accept it as normal. Some we say, “What about accepting and accommodating other people views”. The Church doesn’t accommodate or accept what is against God’s standard. We are like a solid rock in the ocean. When the tides and water current hit and bypass us, we ought to still stand strong without losing our position. The Church doesn’t float with the world. We stand as a rock to position the world to accept the principles of God.

The entire world is aware that thousands of Homosexuals and even transgender are coming to the Ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua to get their deliverance. We bless God that many of them are now seeing the Light in the SCOAN and they are embracing it. Despite how the world establishments are making a political and religious agenda out of the issue, thank God many of them now know that the world cannot give them their true natural freedom.

Prophet T.B. Joshua

The world needs to understand that there is a spiritual force behind homosexuality and transvestite behaviour. That is why we continue to call on those promoting homosexuality and other sexualities that are out of the natural norms to take a bold step of faith and visit the SCOAN for their total deliverance. This is not about pride or shame, but for your own good and spiritual well-being. Do not be deceived by the false teachings and some formulated ideologies that homosexuality is normal; they are from the pit of hell to cage you in bondage. God never created anyone to be sexually abnormal. I urge you to visit the SCOAN official YouTube page and see the testimonies of many homosexual victims that were once in your position but were later transformed by God to live a normal better life.

For those gay that are from countries where such acts are legalised, you should not be quick to rejoice. Know that the world establishment cannot protect you. They are only using you to promote their political agenda. They don’t actually like your person. It is only the true Church of God that like and care about you because that is where you will get the true freedom that you really need. GET A RETHINK! The law can’t save you.  You don’t need man-made laws to be free. Freedom is natural and it only comes from God. Run to the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua and get your freedom. It is not a coincidence that there is a God given Ministry like the SCOAN at these present ages. Where one can get is freedom immediately after a touch from God. It is not by chance. God is aware of your situation that is why He raised a Prophet like T.B. Joshua and other great ministers of the gospel to attend to your need. I PRAY THAT THE LOVE OF CHRIST SHALL CONTINUE TO FLOURISH IN THE EARTH. AMEN!

DEMON-POSSESSED THROUGH THE ‘CHARLIE-CHARLIE’ CHALLENGE!!!

“Touch it; if you don’t touch it, you won’t be our friend anymore!” These are the worst words you can say to a teenage girl, struggling to fit in at school. Though she had a bad feeling about it, after all it was just a game they wanted her to play wasn’t it? A popular game known as the ‘Charlie-Charlie challenge’ had come the latest craze at her school and today was her turn to play. The students performed the ritual to invoke a spirit to interact with two pencils balanced on top of each other in the shape of a cross. They drew a ‘yes’ and ‘no’ on the table and when Jackeline touched it, she had to ask it questions. “Charlie are you real?” Yes. “Charlie are you here?” Yes. “Charlie, if you are here, point at where you are”. And to her horror the pencil pointed straight at her heart. That was the day the life of little Jackeline Martinez changed forever.

A shy and introverted girl by nature, her desire shifted to a stranger dimension as her gentle demeanor devolved into an uncalled-for rudeness pitted with angry outbursts at home and at school. As her behavior publicly took an unprecedented turn for the worst, the fifteen-year-old’s private life warped into a personal prison of fear. She started seeing freakish visions and fearful nightmares. One of the most surreal occurred a day when the youngster fell asleep while studying in the company of her immediate family in their living room. The dream she fell into saw her and her family members in the same position but there was something wrong about their eyes. They gathered round her and told her they had a gift for her that she must drink.

Sensing something was not as it should be, she hesitantly waited as an iron goblet was produced containing a dark red liquid. “Drink it.” The family members commanded. When she didn’t move, they grasped her arms and legs, holding her still. Out of the corner of her eye, she barely glimpsed a dark figure swishing back and forth just out of the light. “No, why are you standing next to satan” she screamed, struggling as the cup was brought up to her lips. Before she could taste the ominous drink, she kicked out and woke up from the table with a jump and a wail. Her concerned mother rushed to her side, “Jackeline, is everything alright?” she asked but fear had already locked the mouth of the young girl who alone knew what had happened to her.

Jackeline’s parents had suspected something was not quite right about their daughter’s recent changes and they started frequenting different church meetings and deliverance services which yielded little or no impact on their daughter’s condition until they heard of the crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua and decided to attend.

“Those of you that have contrary spirits, I don’t want you to leave here without you being delivered. If you leave here without deliverance, that spirit may not allow you to come here tomorrow.” Prophet T.B. Joshua said during the first day. “Therefore, you will not leave here without being delivered. Get ready for deliverance”. It seemed as if he was talking straight to Jackeline. During the mass prayer, the wicked demon inside the teenager was exposed and confessed that it had made the girl a daughter of satan and destroyed her life. She was brought from the stands to the pitch where she finally received her deliverance in a flash of the Holy Spirit’s power.

Testifying days later, Jackeline Martinez described how her mood had entirely changed. She no longer felt the need to be alone or the instantaneous reaction to be rude or rebellious to her mother and family. The joy of the Lord has replaced the sorrow the world had left in her heard and she advised teens across the world, “Don’t listen to your friends when they tell you to do stupid things; listen to God’s gentle whisper and He will lead you right. Believe in God.”

TRANSFORMATION OF A TRANSVESTITE!!!

Born a man, Antonio Caceres lived his entire adult life as a woman. His clothing was female. His mannerisms were female. His style of speech was female. The only connection to ‘males’ he had were the clients who paid for his nocturnal services as a professional prostitute on the streets of Lambare, Paraguay. Here is the incredible story, told in his own words, of his transformation back to the original position in which God created him:

Antonio was just seven years old when he first realised a growing affection for the males in his classroom. He tried to shelve the nauseating urge by playing sports and engaging in predominantly ‘masculine’ activities. But the young boy soon began stealing his sister’s underwear and wearing it at whim, buoyed by a strange form of guilty pleasure. His first full-blown homosexual encounter came at the tender age of 11. It was downhill from there.

“When I was 18, I went onto the streets,” the Paraguayan explained. It was the beginning of ten years in which Antonio would change his name, identity and – almost – his gender. Dressed in seductively tight female clothing, pumped with feminine hormones to remove body hair and develop breasts, cars with male occupants would stop to pick him up every night. Drug-fuelled, drunken orgies became the norm, to the shady extent that Antonio could not even remember who he had been with the previous night or what he had done.

“Something within me kept telling me I was a lady,” he explained, adding that he went by the female pseudonym ‘Dexis’ when attracting suitors online. And Antonio was not just prostituting in the physical alone. “Different men would call me by my female name in my dream and sleep with me,” he revealed. This was a ‘normal’ life for Antonio, one which he saw nothing wrong with. He was a notorious transvestite and drug addict, known not just in his neighbourhood but throughout the country.

Thus, when his sister invited him to attend a Christian crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he not only refused but mocked her for even nursing such a notion. “I thought everything about that crusade was fake and false,” he admitted. On Friday 11th August 2017, Antonio lazily switched on the live broadcast of the crusade on YouTube to see the ‘freak-show’ his sister had strangely chosen to attend. Unbeknown to him, she was feverishly clutching a picture of her brother, praying for the Spirit of God to touch him right in their house that night.

“I was watching just to make jest of the whole programme,” Antonio explained. He snidely laughed as people fell at the prayer of the ‘prophet’. What nonsense! But then, something inexplicable began to happen. Something supernatural. Something Antonio never imagined or bargained for. “As Pastor Joshua began to pray, something touched my inner being,” he recounted.

Right in his house, in front of his phone where the live broadcast was transmitting via YouTube’s Emmanuel TV channel, Antonio fell on the ground and began to vomit. Simultaneously, his sister was holding his picture as Prophet T.B. Joshua began ministering Mass Prayer, pleading with God for Divine intervention. Heaven was at work and distance was no barrier! For more than five minutes, the young Paraguayan lay shaking uncontrollably on the floor. “Something was coming out of me. When I got up, I felt empty. I then started feeling remorse for the life I was living.”

In one Divine instant, everything changed for Antonio. Literally everything! It was if a dark veil had been lifted from his eyes. “I began looking at myself and asking why I was wearing female clothes,” he recalled. “I lost affection for men and stopped taking the female hormones. Now, I want to be a man again!” Antonio spontaneously threw his phone away – filled with all the contacts and connections to his past life – and took a hair cut to remove the long flowing blonde locks he was once known for. “After the deliverance, I actually slept in peace for the first time in my life,” he tearfully testified.

Moved at seeing the condition of Antonio, who didn’t even own a single item of male clothing, the Emmanuel TV Team in Paraguay sprang to action, taking him to a local shopping mall. $500 worth of male clothing was purchased and freely given to the young man. Subsequently, Prophet T.B. Joshua sent the team to Antonio’s house. The reaction of neighbours and family members when the young man exited the vehicle next to his home was priceless. No words can do justice to depict that emotional moment.

Tears flowed as witnesses came forward to explain that all their lives, they had known Antonio as a woman. “God has restored back to us what the devil had stolen,” his sister declared. “If God has delivered me, there is no one He cannot deliver,” Antonio advised. “If you are living the lifestyle I once lived, you may think it’s normal but it’s not; you need deliverance.” Free indeed!

Let us remind you of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s words at this point when he was asked a question concerning his stance on same-sex marriage:

“ ‘Judge not, so that you will not be judged’ (Matthew 7:1). We should talk to people to be saved. I mean, we should talk salvation, not condemnation. God hates sin, not sinners. When I say, ‘Do not judge so that you will not be judged’, I mean we should hate sin, not the sinner because sinners can change. If you have killed a sinner by judging him, there will be no opportunity for change. Sinners can be delivered. We should hate the act, not the people because our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the ‘spirit beings’ that cause all these acts.”

“The Bible is my standard. If my parents were one, I would not have been given birth to. Those that are asking this question – if your parents were one, you would not have been given birth to. You that are reading me – if your parents were one, you would not be reading this today. God bless the reader and the hearer.”

THE CURSE OF VOMITING BROKEN!

Spellbound. Literally. A curse levelled at her mother left Noemi bound and burdened by a strange spirit. Right from her mother’s womb, a concoction from the temple of a spiritualist paved the way for demonic infiltration. The young Paraguayan realised at the tender age of seven that any food she ate could not settle in her stomach. Vomiting became her closest, sickest companion. Reduced to a practically skeletal stature, what the doctors called bulimia was actually a spiritual attack.

When the young lady learned of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s coming to the nation of Paraguay, her heart warmed at the realisation deliverance was nigh. “The moment he touched me, I lost control of what happened. I just saw myself vomiting!” Every spiritual poison in her system was being forced out by the superior power of God! “I can now eat, go to the toilet and sleep normally. There is now a joy in my heart I can’t explain,” the once depression-ridden lady testified. “God has delivered me through Prophet T.B. Joshua!”
