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.

TB Joshua critics

ALERT! Do TB Joshua critics speak any truth?

Grace and Peace to you readers, that which our true prophet calls “Right reasoning” through the heavenly grace, invites us to the table for the living bread and we also invite you, dear reader, through this post, to join us at this table; that we might all be filled with the perfect and complete knowledge of the Father.

We do not mince words in warning you about that website opposed to TB Joshua; and we implore you for the love of God and His true prophet, not to visit them at all, and to unsubscribe from their mailing list as soon as possible. Flee from anything that has to do with them as from the face of a serpent; For even if an atom of what they have written since their site’s existence were true, far be it from us to believe them; yea! Far be it from us to agree with them even to the smallest degree and not out of hard hardheartedness or over-zealousness for the prophet do we say this; No! Rather, we say this because having learned from the true prophet, we are not without knowledge, for we know that not everything that is true is of truth. For this cause our true prophet, TB Joshua, taught in this saying;

worship may be true, were yet it is not pure and entire.

This he stated asserting that what is true may not necessarily be pure. And elsewhere in another saying, he said;

if it is not in spirit, it is not in truth and so it is all nothing.

What spirit does he refer to if not the Holy Spirit? And what truth does he speak of if not Christ Himself- the pure and undefiled one? Let us have an understanding mind in all things pertaining to our salvation. Christ Jesus himself is the very truth in whom there is no atom of falsehood; whereas some have been known to tell what is true with the intent of injuring their neighbor. Can we say such “true word” then, is of truth? Meaning of Christ? No! Never! For any true statement spoken, having first been soiled with evil intent, becomes more wicked than falsehood itself. As is written ‘a stone which causes others to stumble’. O you who read, do not be slow to understand. Does not reason tell you that in this same fashion the lawless serpent deceived eve and brought death upon her and all her children? He said to her “you shall become as gods, knowing good and evil”. In speaking this did he lie? No! he did not. In fact he spoke true of one outcome of their eating of the tree, but this true word was nothing more than bait, because hidden in his malicious heart was the intent of removing all of mankind from freedom and plunging them into slavery – the hook within the bait; In like manner, this critic website is launched out like a fishing line seeking to catch the souls of men and take it out of the sea of faith. Being fishermen and offspring’s of the serpent, they cast some ‘true word’ into the water as bait so that the fish may smell it and pursue its odor, but when he eats it, the hook hidden within the bait, seizes him by force out of the deep waters of faith, and then he rejoices because by trick of the bait he brought up the fish by hook. Understand then how we mean in speaking this parable. For any “true word” spoken by the lawless serpent should be highly resisted because it is completely alienated from the truth who is Christ himself, lest we, deceived into agreeing with him, fall prey to the hook. Therefore let not any among you readers, bear witness to anything TB Joshua critics say as being of truth, however true they may seem, even in your thoughts; for from darkness has the truth been veiled that they may continue in ignorance and fill up the measure of their sin so that the fullness of God’s wrath may be poured out on them.

Finally brethren, who can give lamp to another when himself sits in darkness? Who can clothe another in winter when himself is naked and freezing to death? or still, who can shelter another with a dwelling whereas himself is homeless and destitute? Therefore brethren, Do not pay heed to men who spend time in removing the speck in their brothers eye, forgetting the log of wood in their own, for the man who spends time in picking out other peoples weeds can have no time to pick out his own, and the choicest flowers of his life will soon be choked and die. Dear friends, sharers in the Holy gospel of our lord Jesus Christ, flee from the likes of TB Joshua’s critics as from the face of a serpent, for your spiritual safety, that you may not be bitten and injected with the venom of doubt and that the doubt may not punch a hole in your ship, causing your faith to be shipwrecked. Grace and peace to you and all.
