THE CHALLENGES WE FACE IN CHURCH – T.B. JOSHUA

TB Joshua SCOAN

Prophet TB Joshua

There are supernatural gifts of the Spirit given to the believers to minister to one another. These are received from the college of God, as God’s will. These are separated from man’s natural talents, ability and education. These elements which are obtained from man’s earthly college are used by satan to win the souls of men, and this affects the church in modern times.

Man’s natural ability, talent and education cannot be exercised in the church of the Holy Spirit without being sanctified. Man’s natural ability, talent and education must be obedient to God’s will before it can receive God’s blessing. Today, many people do not know the difference between God’s supernatural gifts and man’s natural gifts. These are the challenges we face in the church today. People use natural gifts for God’s work.

For example, a person has the ability to teach, preach, pray, fast, organise a church – these are man’s natural gifts. The Holy Spirit speaks, teaches, prays, organises as He wills. These are supernatural gifts of God. A person has the power to decide. The Holy Spirit has the power of choice. These are the challenges we face today. Jesus did not ask Peter if he was a gifted speaker, a talented leader. Jesus did not ask about Peter’s seminary training or Bible knowledge. These things are important but they are not the issue. The issue is quite simple. The basic qualification for lasting ministry is found in Jesus’ question: “Do you love Me?” In other words, ‘Do you have a relationship with Me?’
