Will a man Rob TB Joshua? Yet they have robbed him.

There are those who take upon themselves to malign their fellows, there are those who take upon themselves to badmouth their peers, there are those who take upon themselves to criticize their colleagues; and for all these, there shall not one escape the wrath to come.

If there is great punishment in view if such persist; where will they thus appear who take upon themselves to slander Men of God who have a covenant with God?

It matters not whether the Man of God is true or false.

The Christian ought not to say anything behind his brothers back with the object of calumniating him, for this is slander, even if what is said is true.

A good man becomes guilty of theft even if what he stole is another thief’s possessions. Many do not even know that a man who is guilty of slander is in the sight of God also a Thief.

You may ask how? Here is one reason to consider:

It is written in the commandments: Thou shalt not steal, but before the eyes of the law, a man to steal must take a thing that can be seen with eyes of flesh, without the knowledge or consent of him to whom the thing belongs.

But the things that men do not see with eyes of flesh are of more worth than the things that man can see.

A man’s good name is worth a thousand mines of gold (Prov.22:1), and he who says a word or does a deed that injures or defames that name has taken what is not his own and is a thief.

A man may easily make restitution for physical goods stolen, but how shall one make restitution who has by defamation taken off from a man’s good name?

The way is for your confession and repentance to be more widely broadcast than the extent your defamation was spread.

Because scripture says the thief when he is caught is made to restore seven fold. (Prov 6:30-31).

It is either this manner of repentance or devouring fire and outer darkness hereafter.

See into what sea of misery you slanderers (critics) are plunged in.

Don’t forget; a good man who speaks evil behind his neighbor’s back is guilty of slander, even if what is said is true.

This is a sad news for slanderers, because even If what they say behind their neighbor were true, if they do not repent of it, they will be condemned to the outer darkness for slander.

Then if what they say is false even in the smallest degree; perhaps there is something worse than the outer darkness; only Jesus knows their destiny.

There is nothing anyone can say now about TB Joshua that others will not know more about because he does nothing in secret.

Except that person is the only one with eyes in the world.

All who have heard of TB Joshua are already convinced of a lie about him or the truth; and this of their own accord from what they have seen and heard.

Neither those who speak well of him nor those who speak evil of him are given the privilege of convincing anyone because the use of words in description of TB Joshua is not even “Half-enough”.

That privilege of convincing people is the sole duty of his good works; which no form of speech and writing can adequately convey.

While the privilege of converting rebellious minds and blasphemous tounges is reserved for God.

It is like a man, who after he was blinded by the sun, expected his neighbors to believe that the sun is evil, when they all use solar energy for their cooking and lighting.

So why would anyone incur wrath, suffering, and eternal punishment for lies, when he does not even have the privilege of being believed?

Whoever says he believes you, says so in reality because of pre-conceived notions similar to yours.

Whoever does not believe you in reality does not also because of pre-conceived notions opposed to yours.

Why would anyone keep supplying lies for such an imaginary market where there is no real demand?

Apostle peter gives the answer:

“…They are presumptuous and self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil …, whereas angels who are greater in power and might do not bring a reviling accusation against them before
the lord, but these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, they speak evil of the things they do not understand and will utterly perish in their own corruption.”2 peter 2:10-12.

If you would be safe; speak evil of no man, neither take pleasure in listening to a slanderer. Otherwise you that hear too shall be responsible for the sin of him that speaks the evil, if you believe the slander you hear.

This is because in believing, you will have a grudge against your brother. That is how you become responsible for the sin of him that speaks the evil.

TB Joshua himself gives the cure for your sickness of slander and backbiting in these words:

Learn how to speak well of others, not only in their face, but also behind their backs. – TB Joshua.

We say this also for the benefit of commenters on this site who in their quest of defending TB Joshua or correcting the slanderers, get infuriated to the extent of making abusive comments and also raining curses on the accusers.

In this which you do, are you not also disobeying the prophet you seek to defend?

TB Joshua taught us saying: Let others hate you, not you; let others intimidate you, not you, Let others Judge you, not you.

No doubt, they have hated the prophet and judged him, but you yourselves have hated them and judged them, while trying to correct them.

Do you not realize that you have yourselves contracted the sickness you are trying to cure?

Do not the words of scripture now apply to you: Physician heal thyself? (Luke 4:23).

May our repentance be swift and come quickly.

Grace and peace.

HAPPENINGS IN THE SCOAN; ARE FALSE DELIVERANCES INCLUSIVE?

One would not blame those who criticize the deliverances that happen at SCOAN, after all, there is no way a man can explain the taste of ice-cream to another who has never tasted one, for him to understand. Even if he claims he understands after the explanation, he lies and does not until he comes to know by tasting the ice-cream for himself. If the taste of something as trivial as ice-cream, which is physical, transient, temporary can only be known by experience, how much more something spiritual, deep, unseen and inexplicable like deliverance. A man who has undergone deliverance and has the experience of it can never be at the mercy of a man with a mere opinion of deliverance. If you are a wise person or think yourself to be so, how do you view this matter? When you see deliverances in SCOAN happening in their thousands regularly through TB Joshua, the wise men or the anointed water, with so much passion, dexterity, without rest or relenting, what comes to your mind? Do you see all these things as the acts of children merely at their play? Or you see an all-out war going on beyond the full grasp of created reason? O how We pray to Jesus for you, we pray to the One who changes rebellious minds and blasphemous tongues, for Him to save, help, and redeem you because you are not to blame who trivialize his great work of deliverance and you have our sympathy. For why should we be angry with one who is not only blind in the eyes, but has been deprived of physical light and gropes about in the dark? Such a one deserves pity and prayers and not our aggression. May the Lord give you light who read, yet only those whose eyes are good would enjoy His light. They who are blinded within are the most miserable of all men. For while a man who can see and one who is blind are both in the dark, they are the alike, but when the light comes, the vision of the man who sees is illuminated, and he sees clearly about himself, while the one who is blind remains in darkness. For this cause we say that it is only those whose eyes are good that would benefit from the Lord’s light. And we do not mean the eyes of the body, but the eyes of the soul. For this cause the Lord Jesus said in a mystery; I came to make the blind see and those who see to be made blind. He came to open the sight of our mind to the knowledge of things divine and close our eyes to all things of this present world. O blind who see not, O wicked deceivers who believe not, O you sinners against the spirit, pray and ask of the Jesus, the preserver of all that he would give you the true light; and open the sight of your mind, because in your blindness you follow the vain deceptions of the accursed one, who has hurled down the souls of men made in God’s image into degradation, and forgetfulness of God, making them worship at the altar of various idols of earthly things; of money, of fame, of fashion, of game, of worldly power. Making them pour the libations of perverse thoughts to the wicked principalities who rule over all these. The worst of these all include forgetfulness of God and denial of His glorious works. Christ have mercy.

Prayer: O Lord Christ, our savior in willing compassion, to you we ascribe all glory, together with the father who is without beginning, and your all good and co-eternal Holy Spirit, we beseech you Lord, to raise our souls from the degradation into which the slayer of man has cast us down through his envy, Let not their dark air cover us, Let not the offspring of the evil dragon overtake us, let not the children of the serpent hiss at us, let his lying mouth be silenced and muzzled, for he has nothing on us. let his tricks be disclosed, let his snares be broken, let his nets spread out for us in hiding be cut in pieces, let his crown be taken from his head, let his power be brought to naught, let his throne be overturned behind thee, O Lord, for thy mercy’s sake, O most merciful of the merciful. Lest he deceive further, and multiply the unbelieving among men. In Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

TB JOSHUA; A MENTOR FOLLWING IN HIS DISCIPLES’ FOOTPRINTS

It is often said that the doings of a disciple are the hallmarks of his master’s teachings; as the saying goes; like father; like son; like mother like daughter; like disciple like master. On basis of this some critics have insinuated that the character some of TB Joshua’s disciples display is a product of the fruit of the prophet himself. It really irks us when some people blame the attitudes of some disciples on their master. Such people would blame Judas love for money on Jesus, or peter’s weak faith of denial on Jesus inadequacies; should a man who lends his neighbor a knife to cut vegetables be blamed when his neighbor uses the knife for murder? The will of a disciple is up to the disciple, the will of the master is up to the master and the will of God is also up to God. We reiterate on this website that there are risks involved in changing a person, in molding a person into a picture of God’s grace, because not everyone can be changed and not everyone can pay the supreme price of self-denial; even though they may seem to do so at the start. For this cause Jesus said; many who are first will be last and many who are last will be first.

There is risk involved in changing a person into a picture of God's grace.
There is risk involved in changing a person into a picture of God’s grace.

Jesus made it clear that on the last day he shall denounce many of his servants who failed to be watchful, faithful and were found to be sleeping in sin, adding that he would cast them into devouring fire and outer darkness.  ‘And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ Matt 25:30 (ESV). This does not mean they weren’t his servants at the start, but he warned them that only…” the one who endures to the end will be saved”. Matt 24:13. In the book of revelation, he warned his church in these words I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown” Rev 3:11(NIV). What lesson do we learn from all these?

A true master can really do no more than show the way to kingdom of light with example, by the way he lives; it is left for his followers to follow in his footprints and emulate his way of life. Some of these people who blame the prophet for the sordid behavior of some disciples have deviant children whom they cannot control; abusive, rebellious, stubborn, drug addicts etc. and they can swear that the children did not learn any of these habits from them. If a child is only the offspring of one’s flesh, not ones spirit or will, why should anyone ascribe a followers behavior as a master’s fruit? And worse still he considers only the negative examples of the followers? Why does he not also call to account the followers whom through thoughtful and careful obedience to their master’s instructions have climbed the height of divine holiness and now possess the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit? Citing in this case the example of the Wise Men of the SCOAN? Such lopsided attribution only reveals a hidden malevolent intent of slander and defamation of the part of such biased analysts and observers. There are always two sides to a coin, no rose is without thorn, and the bee that produces honey also has its sting.

A fight to the death: TB Joshua

Who is Afraid of Boko Haram when we have TB Joshua?

Despite the picture painted by international media, it appears the pull of a Nigerian Pastor has surpassed the fear of Boko Haram when it comes to tourism in Nigeria.

The scene at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Thursday 12th June 2014 was lively.

The steady stream of foreign arrivals, smiling happily and waving national flags, bore no semblance with the international travel warnings leveled at Nigeria, largely due to the terrorist activities of Islamic insurgent group Boko Haram.

When this reporter inquired as to the reason of the exotic influx, the answer from various individuals and airport employees was unanimous – Nigeria’s controversial yet celebrated pastor, T.B. Joshua, who turned 51 today.

“In fact, the entire flight from South Africa was filled with T.B. Joshua visitors,” a SAA employee told me on the condition of anonymity. “It was the same thing yesterday too. Southern Africa can’t seem to get enough of the pastor.”

Officials at the airport I spoke to reckoned that almost 5,000 foreigners had arrived in Nigeria over the last few days to attend Joshua’s church and felicitate with him.

“Nearly 50 Russians arrived today,” one of the ground staff told me. “It was Americans and Brits yesterday, not to mention those that came from Zimbabwe and Zambia; they must have reached more than 500. They all came to visit Synagogue.”

According to recent statistics from the Nigerian Immigration Service six out of every ten foreign travellers coming into Nigeria are bound for The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).

The scene at the airport certainly attested to this, the majority of people wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the logo of Joshua’s popular television station Emmanuel TV.

“T.B. Joshua is probably the greatest tourist attraction Nigeria has ever produced,” a taxi driver named Ibrahim who plies his trade at the airport reckoned. “I take people from the airport to Synagogue everyday but this last week especially has been busier than ever.”

The cleric, however, has played down the event, telling followers on Sunday that he would not be celebrating his birthday with any special ceremony.

He stated the current security situation in Nigeria did not reflect the need for any ostentatious festivity, adding that he feels what people in society are feeling.

Joshua encouraged congregants to remember his birthday by praying for their nation, stating that the ‘birthday gift’ he is asking from God is the release of the over 200 girls kidnapped in Chibok over a month ago.

T.B. Joshua was born on June 12th 1963 in a humble home in Arigidi, Ondo State, Nigeria. He is best known for his prophecies, miracles and charitable activities, as well as his online influence.

A Facebook post on Joshua’s official page wishing the cleric happy birthday had already attracted more than 50,000 comments from well-wishers worldwide as at the time of filing this report.

NIGERIANS – LISTEN TO YOUR PROPHET

One might ask why a nation like Nigeria that has a world class Prophet like T.B Joshua and other great Men of God known worldwide continue to experience bombings and killings of all sort, perpetrated by some extremist group in their country?, Why can’t God use T.B Joshua to end the crisis in his own land

Nigeria was warned!!!
Nigeria was warned!!!

just as HE has been using the Prophet to do greater things in the life of many and other nations all over the world?

But let us not be quick to forget that since the start of the present crisis in Nigeria, T.B Joshua has remained persistent in exposing the mind of God concerning the situation of terror presently facing the nation. Prophet T.B Joshua has continued to advice the nation on how to handle the Boko-Haram crisis for peace to return to the land but, unfortunately, those in the higher authorities in the country, neither take him, his advices nor his prophetic declaration serious; all of his words where ignored and swept under the carpet.

It was in Prophet Elisha’s reign that there was a great famine in Samaria, where Parents were using their Sons for meal to survive and yet, Elisha could not do anything about it until the king recognized the God of Elisha (2King6). When a nation ignores Gods voice, such nation will keep on prolonging her crisis and keep fighting the wrong battle that may even consume them at the end. In a battle of warfare everyone has his or her own role to play, the Prophet can’t do what is meant for the Soldier likewise, the Soldier cant do what is meant for the Prophet. The Crisis in Nigeria is a battle between light and darkness, you cannot fight darkness with darkness, you need light to fight darkness and this is why the nation needs to seek counsel from the Prophet to handle their present situation.

The killing and arrest of key leaders of the Boko-Haram sect and other extremist group will not guarantee the end of terrorism and militancy in Nigeria; only peaceful negotiation and Gods intervention can stop this act of terror in Nigeria. Let the leaders be united, throw sentiment away and seek for counsel from the Prophet; never say we are in a modern world and Prophets are not needed. The God who raised a Prophet like T.B Joshua in this modern age has reasons for doing so; and the Prophet has shown his genuine willingness to help the nation.

The nation should take note that most of those International nations fighting terrorists and advocating for no negotiation with terrorists; are not fighting this extremist group in their own soil, neither are they fighting them in their territory and also, the terrorist they are fighting are not their citizens but foreigners. But the Nigeria case is a fight between the Government and some group of citizens brainwashed to fight their people due to some unclear motives. And the Government should not close its eyes to the fact that some of the politicians and security personnel are Sympathetic to this extremist group which is also very dangerous to the territorial integrity of the nation if immediate actions are not taking to invite all parties involved to a negotiation table to end the act of terror.

The more a nation ignores God’s instructions, the more the evil plans of the devil will continue to strive in that Land. First get the terrorist to drop their arms through a peaceful negotiation and God will take control of the rest. God loves sinners but hates sin; that is, He loves thieves, killers, homosexuals, kidnappers and terrorists but hates the spirit behind their misconduct. The battle is not a fight against flesh and blood but evil spirits therefore; our neighbors are not the enemies but evil spirit.
