Video – Prophet TB Joshua bombshell: ‘I’m scared to collect offerings!’

Tb Joshua  collect offering Famed Nigerian cleric T.B. Joshua has made yet another controversial statement, admitting that he is afraid to collect money from congregants in the form of offerings.

“People like me are scared when it comes to collecting thanksgiving because I don’t know where you are coming from with your money,” Joshua candidly stated in a sermon on Sunday 9th April 2017, subsequently released on his popular YouTube channel Emmanuel TV.

“Many can come with blood-money,” he acknowledged. “They will just enter church and when it is time for offering, they will raise their offering whereas it’s blood-money. What can a man of God use that kind of blood-money for? Are they going to bless the man?”

According to Joshua, this issue has been the bane of many ministries. “What we receive from our members as offering and thanksgiving is killing us,” he warned fellow pastors.

The cleric went further to proffer a way out, suggesting that ministers of God are also to blame for the way they praise and give attention to those who drop the largest offerings.

“Wicked people like the pastor to ask. If the pastor does not ask, praise and recognise them, they cannot give. They like praise and recognition,” he explained.

“If you want to avoid these people and stop them from putting money – don’t praise them. Let them know it’s God they give to, not you.”

Revealing another clue, Joshua called on pastors to stop receiving offerings ‘directly’ from congregants. “If you don’t receive something directly from a killer, he will not give you – because he wants to be recognised. They like praise; that is their reward because they have no reward from God.”

Joshua stressed that offerings in the church are between the worshipper and God. “What comes from God goes to God. If what you have is from God, it will go to God – you don’t need to have any recognition from the pastor. Whatever you want to give God, you give it,” he surmised.

The pastor then impressed on people the need to consider the force behind any action, not merely the action itself. “The force behind your action determines where the action comes from… It’s not what you see but the force behind what you see that matters,” he stated.

This is not the first time T.B. Joshua’s statements about tithes and offerings have come to the fore. Last year, news surfaced of an elderly woman whom Joshua returned a tithe of N500,000 to, adding that God would not approve of him collecting a tithe from such an elderly person in need of his support.

T.B. Joshua to Critics, Thank you for your Free Adverts!

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Delivering his Esther sermon at the Synagogue Church of All Nation, SCOAN Lagos on Sunday, Prophet T.B. Joshua used the occasion to thanks his haters on how they have helped his Ministry grow in the last 30 years. The renowned Prophet said those who hate him are his main advertisers. According to the Prophet, those who go about describing him as a devil and speaking ill about his church are only helping to advertise him and his church.

He said, “God has given us adverts. Every living ministry has free adverts. What you say about me is an advert to me. If you leave here today and tomorrow, go to town and say,

Prophet T.B. Joshua as a teenager

“That man is a devil, not a man of God’ – you are advertising me! ‘Don’t go there; they used to tie people down. It’s a bad Church. You are indirectly advertising me because the people you are telling will want to confirm whether truly they tie people down.

“By the time they come and find people are not tied down, they become members! So, I have been using this advert for many years but people don’t know. This is why I don’t have a signpost. This is the advert God has given me for the past 30 years.

“God said, ‘Don’t have any signboard – God will advertise your ministry to the world free of charge.’ Thank you for your advert! Let people advertise you. Don’t fight.

“If truly you are genuine, whatever people say about you – whether they condemn you, spoil your name or praise you – it is for your good. Don’t fight; take it easy. What people say about your business, family and life out there – they are for your good. If truly you are sent by God, it will turn around to favour you!”

TB JOSHUA – WHY I’M SCARED TO COLLECT OFFERINGS

“People like me are scared when it comes to collecting thanksgiving – because I don’t know where you are coming from with your money. Many can come with blood-money. They will just enter church and when it is time for offering, they will raise their offering whereas it’s blood-money. What can a man of God use that kind of blood-money for? Are they going to bless the man? This is why we ministers of God have so much to do. What we receive from our members as offering and thanksgiving is killing us.

When you see money given as offering in the church and the bowl is full – inside that is money from both good people and killers. The wicked people like the pastor to ask. If the pastor does not ask, they cannot give. If the pastor does not ask, praise them and recognise them, they cannot give. They like praise and recognition. If you want to avoid these people and stop them from putting money – don’t praise them. Let them know it’s God they give to, not you. Even don’t receive it directly.

If you don’t receive something directly from a killer, he will not give you – because he wants to be recognised. They like praise; that is their reward because they have no reward from God. To know them and recognise them is their reward. What comes from God goes to God. If what you have is from God, it will go to God – you don’t have any recognition from the pastor. Whatever you want to give God, you give it.”

ADDRESS TO ALL AFRICANS – PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

african tbjoshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“No African country can succeed alone. Africans need each other to develop. For example: West Africa needs Southern Africa and Southern Africa needs West Africa to develop. North Africa needs East Africa and East Africa needs North Africa to develop. Indeed, we are indispensable to each other; we cannot do without each other. No one is self-sufficient.

Everyone has a contribution to make. Whether you are poor, rich, immigrant or refugee – you have a contribution to make.

With regard to issues of illegal immigrants, drugs and other crimes, our duty is to work with the law enforcement agencies by giving them useful information. It is only when these agencies fail that we can lawfully protest.

Dear Africans, we should not let other fellow Africans feel unwelcome to our countries.

Africa has neglected her youths. Africa has abandoned the youths to themselves. Africa has failed to make provision for the youths, whereas tomorrow’s Africa is the youths.

When I think about the future of Africa, I have sleepless nights. Everything looks gloomy, frustrating, hopeless, dark, darksome, shadowy, shaded, dull, sunless and unilluminated.

We all take the responsibility for this state of affairs. What then is the way forward? The Lord has instructed me to make myself available and I know God, in His infinity, must have touched other Africans, so that we can come together to remedy this challenge.

This will be posted on social media and other channels, to rally others.

Long live the future of Africa (youth). Long live Africa. May God bless you!”

ARMED ROBBERY SURVIVOR, TB JOSHUA $50,000

tb joshua scoan Tears flowed freely at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday 12th February 2017 following the emotional testimony of Praise Sunday, a young boy literally rescued from the jaws of death.

At the tender age of 12, Praise’s world came crashing down when armed robbers mercilessly slaughtered his mother and younger sister before his eyes.

16587373_1370154306438675_7030283198736424698_o.jpgThe heartless attack, which occurred on May 8th 2016, almost claimed Praise’s life but for ‘Divine intervention’.

According to the young boy from Agbor, Delta State, the bandits first bound their feet and hands before demanding for money from his mum Edith, a widower struggling to run a small provisions store.

When the meagre amount available in the house was presented without an accompanying bank card, the thieves became vulgar and violent.

“They took my sister inside the room, cut her neck and left her dead on the floor,” Praise soberly recalled, much to the shock of the congregation. She was only 10 years old. “They then carried my mum, raped her and slaughtered her; they stabbed her in so many places.”

The young boy had just witnessed the gruesome mutilation of his beloved family – but the robbers weren’t finished.

“They left her dead on the floor and came back for me. They took me into the room where I saw my mum and sister lying in a pool of blood. They then cut my neck and stabbed me in the chest.”

Praise was thrown roughly on the floor as the criminals took their leave, assuming he had already died.

Hands and feet helplessly tied with blood spurting from the gaping wound on his neck, it seemed the end had come for Praise Sunday. Then, something extraordinary happened!

“I managed to open my eyes and saw something white, sparkling and tall like a human being. It carried me, took me to my neighbor’s gate, shook it and then disappeared.”

When his neighbour’s rushed out, they found Praise’s bloodied body dumped at their doorstep, his arms and legs bound together. Raising the alarm, they rushed him to hospital.

Lapsing in and out of consciousness and fighting for his life, Praise was taken to the General Hospital in Agbor before being transferred to the Federal Medical Centre. “Blood was pumping out like a shower; they could not control it,” he recalled of the traumatic ordeal.

Although Praise miraculously survived the attack following emergency surgery and the usage of “T.B. Joshua’s Morning Water”, he was left with his vocal chords severely damaged and a pipe inserted into his throat. For nine long months, he could not utter a single word.

After seven operations at medical institutions across the country yielding no result and several pleas for financial aid to government bodies within Delta State falling on seemingly deaf ears, the family decided to pay a visit to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos.

Hearing of his heartbreaking ordeal, T.B. Joshua – well known for his philanthropic gestures – instantly sprang into action, promising to sponsor Praise’s travel overseas for more advanced medical attention.

Shortly afterwards, the young boy left for Cape Town, South Africa with his caring aunt Mabel, “all expenses paid for by Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners”.

There, a four-hour major operation was conducted at Life Vincent Pallotti Hospital in Cape Town, overseen by specialists Dr Martin Vanlierde and Professor Mark De Groot.

Given a clean bill of health after several months of check-ups, Praise returned to Nigeria to testify that his vocal abilities had been completely restored.

A total of $50,000 (N25m) was spent by Joshua on Praise’s trip, covering his welfare, travelling expenses and medical bills.

Surrounded by his extended family and grateful community members, Praise’s final words spoke volumes. “I encourage the rich and privileged in society to emulate Prophet T.B. Joshua and help poor people like me. Then, Nigeria would be a much better place for us all.”

How T.B. Joshua Prophesied the Florida Airport attack, Warn On Domestic Flight Danger

tb joshua scoan

During the live Sunday Service, January 8, 2017, Prophet TB Joshua warned Nigerians to pray against danger on their domestic flight. Just as he confirmed through one of the SCOAN foreign workers how he Prophesied the American Florida airport attack.

On the danger of the Nigerian domistic flight, the renowned Prophet said what he is seeing concerning one of the domestic flight is worrisome and he has been praying about it.

According to him they should not manage any aircraft or decide to fly more than the number of flights schedule per day due to pressure from customers because he sees danger in the air. He stated that the reason he has not released his predictions for the year was as a result of the terrible negative ones he saw and has been praying to avert them. According to him, he is more concern about the danger on the nation’s local flight because most passengers aboard the airlines comes to the Synagogue. And the devil wants to play a funny game .

” I encourage you to pray Thursdays and Fridays because I see people stranded in the airport and due to pressure I see an airline lifting people hurriedly without checking the condition of the airline. And it’s danger but when we watch and pray it would be averted” Furthermore , he revealed that he informed one of his daughters from America in SCOAN three weeks ago that he saw the attack on America airport.

The American lady, Angela , who was around, corroborated the story that indeed he called her three weeks ago and told her he saw an attack at the airport. In his words, the Prophet said that people no longer believe in prophets or prophecies which is the work of the devil.

We hope those in the Nigeria aviation sector takes this Prophecy of warning seriously in other to avert the imminent danger.

​SAVED FROM THE CHOPPING BLOCK

scoan tb joshuaMiss Esther Kehinde, older sister Deborah and their father came to The SCOAN to thank God for the extraordinary thing He had done in replacing her head with the Cross. Yes, literally the Cross! Esther left the house for school and was expected back in the early evening. However, when the clock struck 7PM, 8PM, and continued to tick away into the late night, panic ran through the spines of her sister Deborah and their father. Deborah and their father united in prayers. Whilst their father prayed with Esther’s picture, Deborah ministered the Morning Water on the bed she shares with Esther and put a demand on the anointing by asking the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua to return her sister home safely, wherever she had gone to.

Testimony TB JoshuaRecounting her experience that beggars belief, Esther said on her way back from school, an unknown man had approached and knocked her down unconscious. When she regained consciousness, she found herself in the midst of several wailing captives. She was at sea as to what was happening and why they were crying. Within seconds, she saw people beheaded and sliced into bits. That was the moment it dawned on her that she had been lined up to be killed at any time. As she looked around and at the killers, a demand came in to request fresh blood. “Yes, there is a new arrival,” one of the henchmen said, pointing in the direction of Esther. The thought of being beheaded and her flesh sold to the human flesh and blood buyers rushed through her mind. She was motioned to place her head on the chopping board. She obliged. When the killer raised his ax up to chop off Esther’s head, he cried out saying he saw a Cross instead of a human head. This threw the killer into a frenzy and shoved Esther aside. Another standing by asked Esther, “Which Church do you attend?” Esther responded: “The Synagogue Church Of All Nations.” The man’s next question was about Esther’s Pastor. When she told him that her Pastor was Prophet T.B. Joshua, the man did not hesitate to show Esther the exit. As Esther took to her heels in the direction of escape from the shadows of death, a young boy attempted to escape along with her but he was quickly seized by the killer kidnappers and dismembered within minutes.

Sharing the same testimony as Esther, Deborah told people all over the world that after she offered the prayer, she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua hold Esther’s hand through a bush path and handed her into her hands. “She has been released,” Prophet T.B. Joshua told Deborah in the dream. And indeed, Esther was released and returned home safely to narrate her ordeal through tears of joy. The two sisters and their father thanked God for His goodness in their lives. Esther also advised people all over the world to believe in the anointing in the Morning Water and minister it in faith, in Jesus’ name.
