Referring to the new Morning water as an upgrade to the former anointed water, TB Joshua proceeded to demonstrate the higher level of anointing present in the morning water, which according to him surpasses its predecessor, the anointed water. This he not only boldly asserted, but also went ahead to prove by administering it to the most severe cases present at the first just commenced Saturday prayer line. The effectiveness of the Morning water was clearly seen as recipient’s who were formerly ailing, shook, wobbled and were thrown off balance as the Morning water was sprayed on them, with TB Joshua’s voice in the background pronouncing them free, all by spraying the Morning water.
The purpose of this post is not to emphasize the effectiveness of the Morning water’s application. That is something TB Joshua prefers to allow the Morning water do for itself and to that we ourselves subscribe. The purpose of this post is to examine a somewhat obscure fact behind TB Joshua’s Anointed water releases over the years. The mind-boggling fact that each consequent anointed water release, often happening yearly, is announced as an upgrade to the former – leading to the retrieval of the former from circulation, to be replaced by the latter.
There is a great, great, great implication ensuing from this trending occurrence in TB Joshua’s ministry. The implication is that God unfailingly increases TB Joshua’s powers yearly; to such exponential degree that the earlier spiritual items he gave the previous year fall too short of his new status in God, that he deems it necessary to retrieve them all and release new ones, so that his people can partake of the prized increase in grace he has obtained from God the Father. Perhaps this is what he meant in LIFE AFTER LIFE when he said: “every year I have been receiving in my vision according to my faithfulness to God, a bigger cross which means to me more responsibilities.”
If he is given more responsibilities yearly, it follows that he would accordingly be increasingly enabled with divine power, and if He has been increasingly endowed with greater power, it must needs be that the spiritual items coming from him also be endowed with superior power.
There is something about this astonishing trend that should strike the carefully observant. A prophet in our day whose spiritual growth is not only consistent and unfailing, but is further attested to by the increased spiritual graces, manifested through every spiritual item he releases; the anointed water, stickers, faith bracelet and a host of others. In a word, this is unlike anything today’s world has ever known. What we know in the world is a proliferation of churches and their ministers, who having picked up on TB Joshua’s idea of anointed water, have never come forward with a replacement as an upgrade. Does this imply that they are always at the same level?, lesser? Or stagnant? We leave that for you to judge, still the fact remains that should they ever succeed in the respect of releasing upgrades, they still have to continue it consistently, yearly, to be able to keep up with TB Joshua pace; which doesn’t appear a prospective reality even in decades to come. What manner of prophet is the man TB Joshua? Perhaps to distinguish his anointed water from the multitudes now proliferated in ministries today, (an imitation of his product) The name “Morning Water” was used. And to distinguish his Apostles from the plethora of pastors who exist today, he named his own “wise men”. A name which is preferred moreso because the name “pastor” has been severly bastardized. So now should we hear any of these new names or titles anywhere else we know the original and we know the photocopy. Good going TB Joshua, because when God gives you an idea, like “Anointed water”, which the world has never heard of, but only “anointed oil”, and God uses you to make the anointed water a success, with millions having faith in it, many of your colleagues in ministry who do not even acknowledge you, make a replica, put their picture on a bottle and also name it anointed water; trying to cash in on the faith you have worked so hard to build in the hearts of believers. And mostimes since they bear the same name, “Anointed water” it is not hard for the unsuspecting public to ignorantly think that they are one and the same thing, as if one could equate the staff of Aaron which budded to that of the eleven other staffs of the rest isrealite tribes, though all were presented before the LORD. (Numbers 17:1-11)
In a world where there is an explosion of churches and myriads of pastors whom their congregants find it a daunting task to assess their spiritual level, talk more of accessing their spiritual growth or stagnancy. The matter of assessing spiritual growth has been reduced to a sordid state, where it is now measured by increase in membership, number of branches, dress sense, eloquence, amount of Hebrew and Greek knowledge of scripture, amount of tithes and contributions e. t. c. All these can be achieved by better marketing strategies, advertising, and are all a function of man’s natural ability – brain power.
In TB Joshua’s own words, he said, if after receiving the morning water, you cannot tell the difference between this and the former anointing water, it means something is wrong with TB Joshua. What a God we have to worship, what a son we have to praise, what a prophet we have to believe, and what a future lies before us with these three supporting our position.
