Prominent, Wealthy Nigerians Should Emulate Tb Joshua – Yakubu Adesokan

Yakubu Adesokan is one of Nigeria’s most prominent para power-lifters, having broken several world records in his weight division and won gold medals in both the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.

In an interview with the Saturday Telegraph, Adesokan called out the lack of support provided for para-athletes within Nigeria from those in positions of prominence, encouraging them to emulate the likes of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

“I would like to see the country do more for us disabled people and I mean every disabled person,” Adesokan, one of Nigeria’s six gold medallists at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, stressed.

“We should enjoy social benefits like other disabled in advanced countries. I believe the government can do it because Nigeria is a very rich country; it’s just a question of government commitment,” he continued.

“Even beyond government, rich people are not showing enough passion for disabled sportsmen.The likes of Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola among other billionaires have not really identified with us and it’s rather unfortunate,” he explained.

“Same with other multinational companies who would rather identify with footballers whenever they win a competition for Nigeria but in our own case, they don’t even show any concern,” he continued, adding that even though most European-based footballers “might not be moved” with such support, it would be “life-changing” for para-athletes.

Adesokan then recalled one of his “happiest moments in terms of being appreciated as a sportsman”as the time Prophet T.B. Joshua of The SCOAN hosted Nigeria’s Para-athletes after the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India.

“He gave gold medallists N1 million and those of us that won three gold medals each got a car in addition. Silver medallists got N500,000 and bronze medallists got N300,000. Even fellow disabled that accompanied us got N50,000 each,” he fondly recalled.

“Prominent and wealthy Nigerians can emulate him,” he emphasised.

Concluding his remarks, Adesokan stated he is in earnest preparation for Tokyo’s Paralympic Games in 2020, reiterating his call for further support for his fellow athletes.

“We have consistently shone for Nigeria at various international championships and it would be logical if we get the same kind of attention like the able bodied athletes,” he affirmed.

How T.B. Joshua Prophesy Nigerian 2019 Election Postponement

T.B. Joshua: Nigerian Election May Likely Be Postponed

I sat with Prophet TB Joshua as a pressman on Sunday after the SCOAN service.  He spoke further:” The Nigerian election may likely be postponed because of many challenges. In whatever way, God is in Control “

This revelation was made by a pressman who meets with Prophet T.B. Joshua to inquire about the mind of God concerning the 2019 election. The Prophet made this disclosure to the pressman on Sunday 10/02/2019 after he had asked the Nigerian people on the live Sunday service to be of good conduct in the cause of the electoral process.

Bellow is the post from the pressman as posted in Sahara Weekly:

Founder and senior pastor of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, has warned that should anything go wrong with Nigeria during and after the forthcoming 2019 general election, it would mark the end of Africa.

The foremost cleric in a globally televised broadcast during yesterday’s Sunday service gave the warning just as he insisted that Nigeria enjoys a bond with the Almighty God.

He, however, told Nigerians to remain calm, noting that there was no cause for alarm regarding the general poll which commences on Saturday with the presidential election.

According to him, “be calm, there is no cause for alarm.” Taking his message further he clearly warned that those who were bent on causing violence during the election should be ready to face trouble, just as he added that Nigeria would remain intact after the election.

“Those who will cause trouble will see trouble. Those who want peace will see peace. There is no need to stock food. After the election, there will be a lot of situations. When it is about to rain, the cloud will gather and it will become dark. But after the darkness comes light. But you will respect God more after the election, ” he said.

Speaking on the place of Nigeria in Africa and in the scheme of things, he held strongly that “Nigeria is the giant of Africa.After the election, you will say God is great. When you come out to cause panic, you will see panic. If anything happens to Nigeria, it will be the end of Africa.”

He therefore allayed the palpable fear across the country when he added that “God will not allow anything to happen to Nigeria. It is just a cloud that is hovering. Be calm. This nation has a strong bond with God. Nigeria will stand. Those who want to cause trouble will see trouble but the nation Nigeria will stand.”

The Ministry of SCOAN confirmed the revelation, by posting it on the ministry only official Facebook page with the following statement:

As we continue to pray for the upcoming Nigerian Presidential Election, let us remember the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua on Sunday February 10, 2019, as quoted in the below article circulating on the internet:

“The Nigerian election may likely be postponed because of many challenges. In whatever way, God is in control…God will not allow anything to happen to Nigeria. It is just a cloud that is hovering. Be calm. This nation has a strong bond with God. Nigeria will stand. Those who will cause trouble will see trouble and those who will cause peace will see peace, but the nation Nigeria will stand.”

 

2019 Elections – TB Joshua’s Message to Nigeria

Prophet T.B. Joshua has given both a message of hope and warning to Nigerians regarding the upcoming presidential elections.

“I want to tell you that no matter the situation, be calm; God is in control,” Joshua counselled congregants on Sunday 10th February 2019.

“Those who will cause trouble will see trouble and those who will cause peace will see peace,” he continued, detailing that the aftermath of the election would ‘look very fearful’.

“You will see the clouds so dark as if it’s about to rain – but suddenly the dark cloud disappears,” he figuratively depicted, saying Nigerians would have greater cause to “respect God” after the elections.

“If anything happens to this country called Nigeria, that is the end of Africa,” he asserted, explaining that Africa’s most populous nation “has a very strong bond with God”.

“If the people of Nigeria want to cause trouble, they will cause trouble for themselves but the nation of Nigeria will stand,” the cleric concluded.

The message comes after Joshua called on congregants last year to pray against “the interruption of the democratic practice” in Nigeria.

Earlier in his sermon, Joshua lauded the importance of ‘working hard’ and ‘reporting.’ “Your hard work alone is not enough to help your company grow but also your reporting whatever is happening in the company,” he counselled.

“We manifest what we possess. We cannot possess faithfulness, which is one of the fruit of the Spirit, yet see unfaithfulness and remain silent. This is compromise… When we are silent, we cannot be placed,” he stressed.

After the service, an online news reporter claimed he saw Joshua who additionally warned that the election “may likely be postponed” because of “many challenges,” adding that even in such a scenario, God remained “in control”.

The fiercely contested presidential election scheduled to be held on Saturday 16th February 2019 pits incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari against his main contender, Atiku Abubakar.

CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS WITH CARE

CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS WITH CARE

Do not be deceived. There are four categories of people in our life and these are:

People that add to our lives by helping our faith to grow and bring us closer to God thereby.
People that subtract from our lives by pulling us out of faith and removing our minds from the things of God.
People that divide our lives by coming around you as parasites only to divert or derail our focus from God.
People that multiply our lives by helping us to water the seed in your life for your future abundance.

Each relationship you have will either affect you positively or negatively.

Proverbs 13:20 says it all; ‘Keep company with the wise and you will become wise. If you make friends with stupid people you will be destroyed’.

FIND OUT WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY!

Find what God has to say

“Many today have ignorantly changed the course of events in their lives without finding out what God says about it. Why? Because they are afraid of the pain and suffering they would go through in the course of their trials. God sometimes uses disappointment to achieve His purpose in our lives. Consider the case of Peter at the seaside after the fruitless effort all night. Imagine the disappointment that could have been written all over his face as he washed his empty net by the riverside. Little would he have known that his failure to catch fish that night was meant to preserve him for a new level in life. Were he to catch fish early enough, he would have gone home earlier, thus missing the Saviour who would change the course of his life forever (Luke 5:1-11).

“From my personal experience for instance, many things I went through eventually turned out to be necessary conditions for the grace of God in my life today. Which area will I mention? Is it my circumstance of birth, parentage, education, lean finances? All these were sufficient to make any other person seek shortcuts in order to change the course of events. Assuming I allowed my situation to dictate my direction, I would have been tempted to seek a shortcut and thus change the divine plan in my life. From what you see in my life today, certainly there was an unseen hand directing the affairs of my life, then and now.”

– Prophet T.B. Joshua

 

DO NOT MEASURE YOUR CHRISTIAN LIFE BY YOUR SITUATION!

“As a Christian, your situation is only a weapon God is using to preserve you, to prepare you for the challenges ahead, to reform you for a better position in Christ or to keep you for a new level in life. Remember as Christians, whatever level we find ourselves, we believe the best is yet to come.

“Don’t despair! Unfavourable circumstances are the arguments satan uses to make people of God question their sonship. He aims to shake our faith and nothing more. For example, a situation where you begin to lament, murmur, complain, whine and question your faith in the presence of others, instead of honouring God before men as Daniel did.

“Ask Daniel and he would tell you what happened in the lion’s den. Ask Paul and Silas and they would tell you what happened in the prison. Ask Job and he would tell you what happened when sores and boils covered his skin and everything he had was taken away. Even if God allows it as a trial, you must not think it strange and doubt your Guard. Don’t because of your situation cut off your dependence on God, your duty to God, your communion with God.

“Do not say because you are in trouble, poverty, unfavourable situations that you are not a candidate of Heaven. Do not measure your Christian life by your situation!”

– Prophet T.B. Joshua

VIDEO: THE WARNING GOD GAVE TB JOSHUA!!!

Prophet T.B. Joshua

In his first sermon of 2019 after a month-long absence from the pulpit, T.B. Joshua speaks starkly about the warning he received from God in a serious revelation…
That revelation – contained at the tail-end of a striking sermon titled, ‘A True Christian Is Tested’ – is filled with practical, poignant lessons of life, especially for those working in the ministry of God. If you’ve ever nursed the notion that ministers of God are only interested in making money, we encourage you to watch on…
“The foundation of the church is the Holy Ghost… It is not the number of people that enter here that matter but the souls that are being saved.” – T.B. Joshua
