The Paraguay Crusade With TB Joshua Day-1

With high expectations for the move of God, the stadium auditorium was filled to capacity, as Paraguayan from all walks of life, government officials, as well as religious leaders and visitors from other South America nations, trooped to the Estadio Defensores Del Chaco in the capital, Asuncion, to receive God’s touch through Prophet T.B Joshua. As the man of God ministers healing and delivering to the sick and the weak, in Jesus‘ name, not less than a hundred wheel chaired people were healed of various ailments as they were seen leaving the magnificent stadium with their wheelchairs raised while they walked unaided for the first time in many years.

A man who came on crutches due to a broken leg received a touch from the Prophet, in the name of Jesus, and instantly began to walk; another person, a woman, who arrived with her left leg strapped in a full leg brace walked to the glory of God as soon as the man of God touched the point of her trouble in Jesus‘ name; a young girl in body brace due to scoliosis that deteriorated backbone jumped to the glory of God the instant she received her healing. A man with several braces all over his body joints – from the ankles to elbows – cried out for help as he counted his many ailments. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the man and instantly he wanted all the braces removed and indeed they were all removed right away. The man did not only walk but ran his best to testify his healing is complete in the name of Jesus-Christ.

A woman in lumbar corset received her healing, instantly walked, and began to jump as she shed tears of joy to glorify God’s name.

An Argentine woman and her husband cried to the man of God saying she needed a miracle due to the severe and hopeless state of her broken leg that rendered her unable to walk without human support. The man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the woman she walked freely to the glory of the Lord.

Another woman suffering from obesity received the touch of God and began to vomit poisonous substances. Right after that, the woman looked refreshed and testified to the goodness of the Lord’s name, as she walked in her testimony.

The two-day crusade which will round off on Saturday (today) started at about 6 pm local time on Friday and saw many streets deserted, albeit with massive pockets of traffic on major roads leading to the stadium.

According to some resident of the city of Asuncion who pleaded anonymity, over 2 million people graced the occasion and such miracles galore have never been witnessed before in Paraguay. This was corroborated by one Mr Mario Martinez, a Mexican who came all the way from Mexico City to attend the crusade.

The high point of the crusade was the official presentation of the Order of Merit, the Paraguay’s Highest National Honour to Prophet T.B Joshua by the Paraguayan Parliament. This was in recognition of his leadership and humanitarian works. He was also presented with an honour of privilege by the Board and Members of the Asuncion Municipality declared Prophet T.B. Joshua as an Illustrious Visitor, sealing this off with the Presentation of Honour of Illustrious Visitor and the Key of The City of Asuncion to him. – An indication that the city has been handed over to God for His blessing through Prophet T.B Joshua.

IT IS NOT MY WORK – T.B. JOSHUA

Prophet T.B. Joshua

It is not my work but my faith in His works (Galatians 3:8). I mean, it is God’s strength that is made manifest in my weakness. So, I cannot boast. This kind of achievement calls for more dedication, more commitment and more devotion. I mean, this does not mean that I should rest. I must continue to press forward so that His strength will continue to manifest in my weakness.

When you know the purpose of your life, you would not be fascinated by every good thing, every achievement, that comes your way. Rather, you would keep pressing on. I want you to know that God just wants somebody to do this work. Otherwise, He can choose to use anybody for His purpose. That is why I cannot boast in what I am doing for God but in what God does in my life (Luke 3:8).

THE END HAS NOT COME!!! – T.B. JOSHUA

scoan tb joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Our enemies may try to strip us of outward prestige and beauty but wisdom and grace of God cannot be taken from us. I mean, people may call you names that are not yours in order to paint you black – I mean to make you look bad in the eyes of people – but wisdom and grace of God cannot be taken from you. They cannot take this because it is not given by man. They were able to take Joseph’s coat of many colours which was given to him by his father. They were able to separate him from the warm arms of his parents but wisdom and grace, they were unable to take from him.

Our enemies may separate us from friends, relatives and country but cannot separate us from the presence of the Lord. They may rob us of liberty and confine us in a prison cell but they cannot shut us out of the throne of mercy and communion with God.

What promise of God are you carrying? What situation are you in now? Does it guarantee the fulfilment of that promise? Remember, Joseph was a child of promise. Did his situation in the dry pit guarantee the fulfilment of God’s promise in his life? The answer is NO. Yet he must move on, because to him the end had not come yet.

If the situation you are in right now does not guarantee your future, don’t lose heart; the end has not come yet. As a child of God, God may be taking His time to prepare you for the challenges ahead.

WITH A PURPOSE

tb joshua ministry

Prophet T.B. Joshua

As a child of God, you determine your own focus – nobody else can. You can complain and blame your situation on poor family background, bad counselling of friends and the economic situation of the country. But you are responsible for what you give your attention to. Your focus is your personal decision. Stop and take time to change your focus. Pay any price to protect your purpose in life, because no one else can do it for you.

When you don’t have a defined purpose of going to university, you would be ready to study any course because you just want to be a graduate. This is what brings about the high level of unemployment today.

On the other hand, we have some people who are still studying to meet the requirements for the course they intend to study. If you do not have a purpose for establishing a business, you cannot be constant in it. When things become tough, you easily switch to another business because you don’t have a purpose of doing it.

If you don’t have any purpose for being in certain relationships, you would be nothing more than fair weather friends. That is, you are friends only when things are good. If you don’t have any purpose for being somebody’s friend, you would be looking for his weakness, limitation and shortcoming.

PHOTOS: PRAYER IN THE NAME OF JESUS SHOOTS PROTRUDED ANUS BACK TO PLACE

Please Note: The Photos – Viewers’ Discretion is Advice

The Ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua has release photos of one Mr. Friday said to have been healed of Anus Cancer. According to the post, the Anus Cancer ‘started one day when he went out to look for a job as a driver and had to use the toilet.

‘Upon using it he started experiencing difficulty and then suddenly his anus protruded out of place.

‘The pain was so unbearable to the extend he was unable to sit or walk. When he consulted the doctors, they suggested to cut off the protruded anus.

‘He initially decided not to do the operation, but the severity of the pain made him appeal to his mother to return him to the hospital for the surgery.

‘Lying on the hospital floor in pain and agony, an elderly man noticed Mr. Friday’s horrible condition. The man told him about all the miraculous healings God was doing through Prophet T.B. Joshua and suggested that he go to The SCOAN for prayer.

‘Mr. Firday’s faith was lifted and he left the hospital and decided to seek solution at The SCOAN. In tears of pain, he cried out to Prophet T.B. Joshua to pray for him. Once the man of God prayed the prayer of faith in the name of Jesus, Mr. Friday felt a sensation in his stomach and he immediately knew that healing had taken place.

‘When He went home, he continued to minister to himself the Morning Water he received. All of a sudden, he found himself wanting to use the toilet, something he hadn’t done for a very long time.

‘The excretion almost filled up the toilet. Amazingly, his protruded anus shot back inside his body! Now Mr. Friday is able to sit, walk and run comfortably to the glory of God!

Nigeria will lose billions if TB Joshua relocates — Experts

tb joshua scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Some stakeholders in the tourism sector on Sunday advised the Federal and Lagos State Governments to dissuade Pastor Temitope Joshua, popularly known as, TB Joshua, from relocating the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) to Israel from Nigeria.

They told the News Agency of Nigeria that Nigeria would lose billions of naira to religious tourism if Temitope Joshua and SCOAN should make the plan real.

NAN reports that TB Joshua, during one of his church services, recently said that he was planning to relocate to Israel from Ikotun, a suburb of Lagos.

It was reported that TB Joshua was in Israel recently where he held meetings with the mayors of Jerusalem, Tiberia and the Jordan Valley.

He was quoted as saying that he was offered different facilities very close to the biblical site of the Sea of Galilee where he could organise meetings for international pilgrims.

NAN also reports that SCOAN established in 1994 does not have another branch in Nigeria outside its international headquarters located in Ikotun.

Some heads of government from African countries had also visited SCOAN to seek spiritual restoration and advice from Pastor TB Joshua

Mrs Ime Udo, the General Secretary of the Nigerian Association of Tour Operators (NANTA) told NAN that Nigeria would lose billions of naira from religious tourism revenue if SCOAN actualised its planned relocation to Israel.

Udo said Joshua’s planned action would lead to a reduction in the human traffic of local and foreign religious tourists that normally patronised SCOAN.

Udo said, “Religious obligations have become a fashionable trend all over the world as a means of expressing beliefs and faith in the ability of God to protect and guide mankind.

“Religious practices both under the auspices of Christianity, Islam and traditional practices have in no small way contributed to the development of tourism in the world.

“Christian pilgrimages to Israel have formed an economic platform for the empowerment of the localities and contributed to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country.

“Also, Saudi Arabia has been benefiting immensely economically from many Islamic faithful who converge there twice annually on holy pilgrimage.

“With these scenarios and many others around the world, it has become valid that religious tourism has become a source of economic revival to a country and its people, “she said.

According to her, thousands of foreign religious tourists visit SCOAN monthly to worship and for other spiritual healings.

She said that these tourists would fly into Nigeria; lodge in hotels, board commercial vehicles, patronise eateries and visit other tourists’ sites around the locality.

Udo said that all these had been translating into huge revenue for the Nigeria economy.

“The local community; hotel operators, food vendors and others around SCOAN must have benefitted from tourists.

“SCOAN has, no doubt, contributed immensely to the tourism profile of Nigeria with several heads of government from various African countries that had visited there to seek spiritual restoration and advise from Pastor TB Joshua,” she said.

Udo advised the Federal and Lagos State Governments to encourage SCOAN to remain in Nigeria as part ways to develop our tourism sector.

A member of SCOAN, Mrs Iyabo Emmanuel, said that she was in church service when their General Overseer, Pastor TB Joshua, announced to the members on the offer given to him by the Israeli Mayors.

Mrs Emmanuel, popularly called “Iya’’( Mother) Synagogue, said that Pastor Joshua never said that he had  agreed to such a proposal from the mayors.

“I have been worshipping in SCOAN since 1994 when TB Joshua established it newly in Ikotun area.

“I worked with TB Joshua for 15years before I resigned and ventured into selling of provisions. Then, I was the chef; head of canteen and bakery.

“I am still a full-time member of the church and I will continue to worship there. I am one of those that had benefitted from the church,” she said.

Emmanuel said that many residents and business owners would suffer if TB Joshua should relocate SCOAN from Ikotun.

She said that majority of business owners around the area depended solely on the visitors to the church and they used to patronise facilities around the church.

A hotel operator, Mrs Anthonia Chuks, told NAN that if the rumour that TB Joshua was relocating to Israel eventually turned to reality, the hospitality business in that area and the state would suffer and fold up.

“Ninety–five per cent of guests that lodge in hotels in the community are international and local visitors outside Lagos and they are SCOAN members.

“We have over 130 rooms and are always fully booked every weekend.

“We usually enjoy huge patronage from Fridays to Sundays weekly; and they are mostly SCOAN members from near and far,” she said.

Similarly, Mr Solomon Oyelade, a car-hire operator, said that since the rumour of the planned relocation of the church to Israel, the patronage of cabs had reduced drastically.

Oyelade said that in the past, he used to go to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos seven times in a day to transport international passengers down to SCOAN.

“But, since the incident of collapsed building in the church premises years back, the patronage of foreigners had reduced.

“With this present rumour of relocation, we hardly carry passengers from Airport two times a day. The patronage has reduced beyond expectations, “he said.

Also, Mr Uche Maduako, a food vendor, appealed to TB Joshua not to accept such offer from the Israeli mayors.

He said that behind every rumour there is an iota of truth.

He also urged the Federal and the Lagos State Governments to support the continuing stay of TB Joshua in the country.

“The government should make the country worth staying for him and ensure they support him in all ramifications,” he said.

Maduako urged the government to renovate the bad roads around the church, adding that the condition of the roads was not encouraging.

He said that the contributions and impacts of TB Joshua in that community could not be overemphasis.

“The man of God has contributed immensely to the betterment of the community; employed thousands of graduates and non-graduates to work in the church and in other investments of the church.

“TB Joshua always ensures that there is constant power supply and adequate security in the area,” he said.

WARFARE IS NECESSARY FOR VICTORY – T.B. JOSHUA

tb joshua scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

The best man in the world holds his integrity (position, honour) no longer than God upholds him in it. The best man in the world can only maintain his position and honour as long as God keeps him in it for by His grace, we are what we are. The best man in the world can only maintain his position and honour by His grace. If we were to be left to ourselves, we would fall and our enemies would triumph over us. I mean, if God withdraws His support from us, we would fall and our enemies would laugh at us. In the midst of trials and evil wishes of the enemy, King David prayed to God not to allow his enemy to triumph over him (Psalm 41:11).

God knows that we are naturally weak and fearful when we are faced with danger/ trials/ persecution or an adversary who seems stronger than we are. We, on our part, should learn to trust in God’s help so that those whose primary interest is to make us feel ashamed, will themselves be ashamed. Such was the case of King David as he wrote Psalm 40.

At certain periods in life, we find ourselves being unduly hated and persecuted because of the grace of God in our lives, especially when they cannot figure out the root/ foundation of our integrity. They begin to ask questions and query the legitimacy/ genuineness of our spiritual experience. Anything in our lives that tends to defy the logic of people’s imagination is therefore to be highly resisted and fought to a standstill. I mean, new things always suffer uncommon persecution. When they fail in achieving their aims, they call you names in order to down-grade your integrity and honour in the eyes of people. Jesus never begged anyone to believe in Him. He knew that integrity cannot be proven; it must be discerned.

Integrity is not something we can prove by outward beauty and prestige alone. God does not judge as people do. Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). Our enemies/ people may try to strip us of outward prestige and beauty but the wisdom and grace of God cannot be taken from us. They may call you names in order to paint you black in the eyes of people but the wisdom and the grace of God cannot be taken from you because it is not given by man. They were able to take Joseph’s coat of many colours which was given to him by his father; they were able to separate him from the warm arms of his parents but were unable to separate him from the presence of God.

When you find yourself in such situations as a child of God, do not lose heart. God sometimes allows His children to experience persecution in order to toughen (strengthen) them for the greater heights ahead and the challenges that follow.

David thanked God for not allowing his enemies to triumph over him. Remember, you cannot be said to be triumphant/ victorious without fighting and winning a war. Triumph or victory is a product of warfare. In other words, he who desires triumph/ victory must be ready to embrace war.

So when you are persecuted by your enemies for what you believe in/ when you are facing trials for Christ’s sake, count it all joy that your chance (opportunity) for victory is at hand. The Bible strongly advises all true Christians to cultivate (develop) the habit of finding reasons to rejoice in the Lord, especially in the face of adversity (Isaiah 41:16).

In my own case, persecution has always been a tonic to my anointing. The more the persecution we receive, the greater the opportunity we have to move closer to God for strength and renewal, knowing that if gold must be gold, it must pass through fire. If a clay pot is to be strong, it must go through intense heat. As gold is tested by fire, so also human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation.

Glory be to God, the more we are persecuted, the more we attract God’s attention and commitment. The extent of His care and the strength of His might in our lives weaken and frustrate our adversaries. When God gives you strength, He also sees you through any obstacle.

Whenever I am persecuted, I am quick to remember the story of Jephthah. He was an example of the rise of a man to prominence from rejection (Judges 11). He was persecuted and denied the right to belong. God often humbles those whom He designs to exalt and makes them the stone the builders reject which finally becomes the head of the cornerstone. Joseph, Moses and David – the three most prominent shepherds of Israel, were all rejected and persecuted by men before they were called of God to great offices. This is how God prepares His servants for the service He designs them for and makes their trouble work for their advancement.

If Jephthah had not been so persecuted and rejected by his unkind brothers, he would not have had such opportunity to develop and improve his military experience that finally saw him to the throne. The Bible says, having been rejected by men, Jephthah drew from God’s resources all that he needed to stand future challenges. The Spirit of the Lord came upon him and advanced his natural faculties and filled him with power from on high. Thus God confirmed him in his office in the presence of his enemies. God gave him an excellent spirit and bravery to face the challenge and his triumph, his victory was clear. Nothing was too dear for him to acknowledge God for not allowing his enemy to triumph over him.

People of God, nothing is too dear to acknowledge God for not allowing our enemies to triumph over us. We are not in any way suggesting that we have arrived. Far be it. This is our humble way of thanking God for not allowing our enemies to triumph over us. “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so they persecuted they the prophets which were before you” (Matthew 5:10-11).

May God bless His holy Word, in Jesus’ name.
