RESPOND TO GOD’S WORD INSTEAD OF REASON!

tb joshua ministries Living in the Word of God in times of trial and temptation will assist you to respond by the Spirit of God instead of complaining, murmuring, lamenting, falling into self-pity, comparing yourself to others, measuring yourself with others and being overwhelmed by your situation.

When anyone approaches me in great emotional havoc and disturbance, I know the Word of God is not dominating their life – because they discuss their battle instead of the One who is fighting for them. Today, we respond to reason instead of the Word of God. If there is anything we have faith in today, it is in man, what man has done – science, works, organisation.

No matter how much we master the Scriptures, without acting on it – I mean, without true obedience to what we read, we still remain spiritual babies. Spiritual babies base their spiritual experience on feelings and emotion because they have not yet learnt to act only on the Spirit of God’s leading. When we obey the Word of God that is spoken by the Holy Spirit, we will grow and mature in times of conflict and suffering.

I meet a lot of people expressing the desire to be Spirit filled and I applaud that desire but I must tell you that you must be grounded in the Word before you are Spirit filled, or else there will be nothing there for the Holy Spirit to remind you of. As the Word dominates your mouth, one day, it will pay off – the Spirit will bring it to your heart.

T.B. Joshua Caution Nigeria on Inconclusive Elections

tb joshua ministry

Prophet T.B. Joshua

On Sunday 17th March 2019, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a prophetic warning to the government of Nigeria concerning the handling of “inconclusive elections” in the nation.

These were his words: “I have a message for my country and I want to say it. What is the message? The government should be cautious of the way they go about inconclusive election. They should be cautious about it. This can be an open door for satan. You know satan kills, steals and destroys. They should be cautious the way they handle inconclusive elections. This can be an open door for satan. Satan kills, steals and destroys. Lift up your voice and pray. If here is not at peace, you cannot come here. So, lift up your voice and start your prayer from this country, Nigeria. Open your lips and pray for peace and harmony. Pray for the nation, Nigeria – for peace and harmony, for understanding, wisdom. God’s intervention! In Jesus Christ’s name we pray!”

In the aftermath of Nigeria’s contentious governorship elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced that polls in six states were inconclusive. Thus, supplementary elections in the affected states — Kano, Sokoto, Plateau, Benue, Bauchi and Adamawa — have been scheduled for March 23.

GOD’S AGENDA!

tb joshua ministries Whatever you do now that is not in line with God’s agenda for your life that seems to prosper will disappoint you in your greatest time of need. The ups and downs we see in the world today are a practical example of non-application of God’s agenda. The book of Psalm 37:25 says, “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.”

You are worried and upset about many things but only one thing is needed: God’s agenda! The question is: What is God’s agenda for you? If you are in God’s agenda, your situation is only a weapon God is using to preserve you. Your enemies think they are hurting you, not knowing that their hatred, evil plans, jealousy, envy and bitterness are weapons that God uses to preserve you. There is only one person who can get you out of the will of God and that is you.

Often God’s plan causes us to face problems, persecution, temptation, hurt and challenges – but we refuse to face them and run from the very things that will bring strength to our lives. If you are in God’s agenda, often the things that look like an abortion of God’s plan for us actually end up being the road to its fulfillment, if we stay free from offence.

 

TALK TO GOD AND LET GOD TALK TO YOU!

tb joshua ministries

TALK TO GOD AND LET GOD TALK TO YOU

Prayer is a two-way conversation, in which you talk to God and God talks to you. I mean, God listens to you as you pray and replies according to the state of your heart. Remember the Bible says, ‘Blessed are those who are pure in heart.’ This means Christianity lies in the heart. What is the state of your heart? When you read the Bible without offence, you are hearing God talk. Prayer and Bible reading should always go together. One is not complete without the other.

When you hold an offence in your heart, you should not be surprised if the Bible does not have any value to you. This is what the Bible means by: “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8) In other words, they shall understand the Word of God in God’s way. Offence has created a wall between us and God. We resist the devil by not becoming offended. You will receive in a moment what you have been seeking for years the moment you let go of your offence!

LET GOD’S WORD DOMINATE YOUR HEART!

tb joshua ministries

LET GOD’S WORD DOMINATE YOUR HEART

If the Word of God dominates your mouth, it will dominate your heart. If the Word of God dominates your heart, it will influence your conduct and behavior. I encourage you to read your Bible slowly, attentively and repeatedly. The more you read with forgiveness, the more you will understand about yourself and this God who created you. The Bible is about what God has to say to you.

No state of being is as rewarding as living in tune with God.

  1. Get His ideas
  2. Work with His projects
  3. See life as He sees it
  4. Discover whom you are and your real value
  5. See yourself as God sees you
  6. Get interested in His plans
  7. Get God’s opinion of yourself and of others

The more you meditate on what you read in the Bible with forgiveness, the more familiar you will become with His voice. Embrace the Word of God as the effective instrument for change. The Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to bring peace into our hearts.

Special Report On global mileages’ covered by Emmanuel TV Team in last 13 years

TB Joshua and wife

General Overseer, Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), owners of Emmanuel TV Team, Prophet TB Joshua and wife, Evelyn

In the beginning of his call to serve God and humanity in far away 1989, the Ondo State-born love, salvation and deliverance preacher, Prophet Joshua Temitope Joshua (popularly called TB Joshua) anchored his ministry on charity.

Otherwise, since the foundation, it has been committed to reaching out to a troubled world, irrespective of faith, race and nationality. This dream of the ministry is powered through diverse humanitarian projects across the worlds.

Charity is one of the missions at the heart of the ministry for there is no love that does not express itself in giving.

However, to drive the ministry vide a purposeful platform with seamless worldwide access and visibility, in 2006 the ministry known as Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) set up Emmanuel TV broadcast platform transmitting live from SCOAN headquarters in Ikotun Egbe, Lagos.

In the last 13 years of broadcast transmission, Emmanuel TV team had been reaching out to the four corners of a troubled world regardless of nationality, race, tribe or tongue.

Explaining more on the modus operandi of the charity mission, Prophet TB Joshua averred that “Whether it is responding to natural disasters or initiating welfare programmes for indigenous communities, we are committed to Christ’s mission of bringing bread to the hungry, water to the thirsty, hope to the broken-hearted and a roadmap to the lost. What a real privilege to be in a position to give!”

Some of the key feats and remarkable charity supports given across the world by Emmanuel TV and its global partners include the following.

Donation of $100,000 to the Columbian National Metropolitan Police Force in support of those who were widowed, orphaned or wounded in service of their country;

In USA, the team supported inmates of Mountain Ministries Ranch in Washington with another gift of $2000 to the founder, Gary Miller during the visit by Emmanuel TV Team.

Still in the US, the team visited and supported The Homeless Camp by the River of Colorado.

Supports in the area of international charity cannot be all captured in this analysis; however, in the areas of disaster reliefs, the Emmanuel TV team within the last 13 years has given unprecedented charity supports globally.

Accordingly, hearing the desperate pleas of such victims’ across the world, TB Joshua and the Emmanuel TV team respond with love and faith by providing essential relief in the areas most needed, including shelter, healthcare and foodstuffs.

Areas visited with goodies include Typhoon hit Philippines, victims of China flood and fire, Haiti earthquakes. In fact, it is on record that two cargo planes were chartered by Emmanuel TV to fly relief materials from Florida in USA to the only airport opened in Haiti during the time of the quake.

Also, engineers from the team constructed relief settlements and provided medics during the period under review which propelled the Haitian president, Rene Gracia Preval to meet with the team.

Still on disaster reliefs’, during the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone, Emmanuel TV team was on ground for relief with materials and cash donation of $50,000, thus prompting the President then, Mr. Ernest Bai Koroma to write and appreciated the team in a letter dated August 4, 2014.

The Emmanuel TV team also visited victims of Indian fire with relief materials in Pallam Village, Andhra Pradesh.

On assisting victims of human trafficking, the team had in the last 13 years been rehabilitating and resettling an unprecedented number of both Nigerian returnees and victims from other parts of the world at SCOAN.

Coming home front and looking at Emmanuel TV Team’s exploits in outreach activities in Nigeria, observers say it has been unprecedented in the last 13 years of existence.

Ranging from assistance to Internally Displaced persons (IDPs) due to Boko Haram’s insurgencies where the team donated N10m to one of the camps in Abuja to supplies of bags of rice to several homes for the needy include the Gidikanu Home in Agege, Lagos and others.

In fact, Prophet TB Joshua himself led the mission to Oko Baba Destitutes Home in Lagos and shared food items by himself within the period under review.

The team had been donating trailer loads of rice to crisis-stricken states across the federation including Yobe, Plateau, parts of Lagos, and several Muslim communities in Nigeria.

Prophet TB Joshua had been rehabilitating the physically challenged with gifts of walking aids and financial empowerments and also has taken deliveries of over 2,000 Nigerians trapped in Libya in the last couple of years under the Emmanuel TV team largesse.

Emmanuel TV team had been in the habit of reaching out the fatherless, motherless, physically challenged, elderly, ‘Little People’, widowhoods, all both in Nigeria and abroad.

Besides, the team had been in the habit of rehabilitating damaged transformers and houses in areas dominated by the downtrodden both in Nigeria and abroad.

In the areas of scholarships, the exploits of Emmanuel TV team are unprecedented both in Nigerian and abroad also.

Whereas such a small analytics may not cover all the charity so far given out in the last 13 years of existence of the Emmanuel TV Team known for “Reaching Out To A troubled World,” it is important to highlights some of the accolades so far received from far and wide by the team in the last 13 years.

Recall that in 2008, the then president and commander-in-chief of Nigerian Armed Forces, late Umar Musa Yar’Adua honoured Prophet TB Joshua with the prestigious award of Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR), he has also been honoured by several other nations and international bodies including American Women’s Club, Nigerian National Assembly, his home state, Ondo, West African Students Union, Arewa Youths Forum, Yoruba Man of The Decade, National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), United Nations Peace programme, South African Football Association and so many others.

Only recently, Emmanuel TV set new world record in viewership according to YouTube statistics and Facebook.

However, in the words of the man of God, Prophet TB Joshua, “The Best is yet to come on the Outreach Activities of Emmanuel TV Team which had been powered by contributions from partners from around the globe to solve global problems”.

Business Hilights recalls that Emmanuel TV is the broadcast outlet of the SCOAN, an international Christian ministry based in Lagos, Nigeria with Prophet TB Joshua as its General Overseer.

FAITH IS NOT IMITATION!

Faith is not imitation; it cannot be imitated. It must arise in each person’s heart based on the Word of God. Faith is not imitating someone else’s actions. You cannot expect answer to prayer based on the testimony of others, what other people said or did. God will not meet you because you imitate what someone else did.

God will meet you when you obey what He told you by His Spirit based on His Word. If you take action in obedience to God, you will prosper. Remember Ephesians 3:17 – “…that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…” It is not only committing the Word to memory which is valuable but it is letting that Word become an integral part of your being. When it becomes an integral part of our being, faith forms.
