TALK TO GOD AND LET GOD TALK TO YOU!

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!

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;

Still in Latin America, the Emmanuel TV team provided food items and household materials for indigenous people living in jungles of Chiapas, Mexico;

In Aisa, the team built school in Pakistan and donated $100,000 to homeless citizens of Indonesia;

In Russia, the team visited the Open Heart Homeless Project in Haborovski with pairs of winter gear and essential materials.

During his visits to parts of South America, the Emmanuel TV Team commissioned a school it donated to remote communities in Paraguay.

In Africa, the team within the period under review, donated hundreds of bags of rice to Ghana prisons Authority, Krachi West District Hospital, fleets of motorcycles and vehicles worth $140,00 to Ghana Police.

In the UK, the team working in partnership with Flower Of justice Foundation, gave out essential materials and cash donations to Southampton.

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.

Within the last 13 years of Emmanuel TV platform, players churned out from the scheme’s football team known as My people FC have made it to the Nigerian Super Eagles including the top midfield maestros of Sani Emmanuel, Ogenyi Onazi and others.

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.

 

WALK BY FAITH!

We cannot understand God by feelings. We can only understand Him by what the Word says about Him. God is everything the Word says He is, so we need to get familiar with Him through the Word. Too many people try to get acquainted with God through their feelings. When they feel good, they think God has heard their prayers. When they don’t feel particularly good – I mean, when they feel God is unkind or unfair to them, they begin to rebel or murmur against God. They feel that God no longer answers their prayer; their faith is thus based on feelings.

First they begin to change churches and finally choose to seek alternatives outside the church. Such is the fate of those who base their faith on feelings. Real faith is based upon the Word of God. Real faith says, “If God’s Word says it is true, it is”, while feelings say, “Unless I see, I cannot believe. Unless I touch, I cannot believe”. The Word of God says, ‘Blessed are you when you believe without seeing’. Believing God is believing His Word. If our faith is based upon feelings, we are just using natural human faith and we cannot get spiritual results with natural human faith. Anyone can believe what he can feel, hear or see. When it comes to spiritual things – we don’t walk by sight, we walk by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7).

– T.B. Joshua

 

JESUS KNOWS ALL MEN!

JESUS KNOWS ALL MEN

Jesus knows all men – their nature and their true character. He knows when you are speaking what is in your heart. When you say, ‘Jesus is Lord’, He knows whether you are confessing what you believe. It does not take long to realise that Jesus believes that what we say is important. If it is not according to the truth of God’s Word, it would be idle, meaningless and oftentimes destructive. Jesus knows all men. He is not deceived or carried away by the waving of hands or singing of melodious hymns or the raising of powerful prayer points. He knows that belief may not be for all that confess. John 2:24-25 – Jesus did not need anyone to tell Him about them, because He Himself knew what was in their heart. In other words, He did not need anyone to explain the nature of man to Him, for He Himself knew the stuff man was made of.

Whichever form you come to Jesus, He sees beyond your appearance. Jesus does not need anyone to tell Him about you, because He knows you better than you do yourself. That is why you cannot deceive Him with the waving of your hands in worship. You cannot deceive Him by the raising of strong prayer points or by the multitude of your sacrifices without repentance. This means God does not need your sacrifice to take away your sin but your repentance – not only feeling sorrow for the sins committed but breaking away from sin.

– T.B. Joshua

HOW TO DEAL WITH YOUR ENEMIES – TB JOSHUA

tb joshua, scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“Today, people look upon pain, wrong and injustice towards their neighbours unaffected. Your neighbour could be your enemy, friend, those who do not share the same faith with you. The Bible says love them all. But today – because they do not share the same faith with you, when you see them in a problem, you ignore them and look the other side. Because you are a Christian and they are not a Christian, whatever problem they have – you look the other side. No! You have to love your neighbour as yourself. If your conscience is alive to Christ, you would always be there for your neighbour. Love your neighbour as yourself.

The Bible says, ‘I will set a table before you in the presence of your enemies’. If your enemy is not there, the table will be useless. It’s good for your enemy to see what you become. What they thought you cannot become – it’s good for your enemy to see. They thought you cannot become this or that – it is better they see for themselves. That may change them and win their soul! A good example of what I am talking about is we here in the church today. If we begin to examine the conscience of everyone here and look at the past – at least 50% never thought they would come here. You had a different impression about T.B. Joshua. You stood in opposition towards T.B. Joshua in the past but today, you are alive to see that he is your friend, not your enemy. If you had died then, would you be able to see this? If I had died then, would I be here today?

What is the way out? Pray for your enemy! Prayer from your heart, not from your lips. If you choose the path of praying for your enemy, you will have a great relief. Because you are running to defeat your enemy, it has taken you to many places – spiritually, physically and financially. It has caused you sleepless nights – fear, anxiety, pressure. Every bad thing that happens to you -when you have nightmare – you attribute it to your enemy. The pain you are going through – it’s not your enemy that is going through it but you. Why can’t you ignore your enemy and move forward? Pray for them! You are the one going through the pain.

When you begin to chase your enemies, you will automatically forget the condition in which you are – because it’s not possible to look at two sides. I am going through pain that the enemy caused – and at the same time I am pursuing the enemy that caused it. I will ignore the pain. The pain will be there but how to take care of myself will be ignored. This is why our pain persists. The situation that you are supposed to go through within a week, you are on it for the past one year – because you ignore your condition and you are pursuing your enemies

The bigger your success, the bigger your enemies. Why are you wasting your time when you know it’s a normal life? You go through your trial according to your position and I will go through my trial according to my position. It is our position that attracts trials. Your position in life attracts persecution. If your position is big, it will attract big trials. Big blessing will attract big trials. You don’t want trials; you don’t want success in life. When people talk about you – ‘He is a foolish man; she is a foolish woman’ – you know it’s a recognition! What you are going through should not rule your life. What you are going through does not matter but what matters is whom you are.”
