Happy Birthday Commentary, T.B Joshua At 56

Tb Joshua 56 birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TB JOSHUA!

BY CHRISTOPHER NWANNEKA

Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua, popularly known as T.B Joshua, is the founder of Emmanuel Television and General Overseer, Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos. T.B Joshua was born in Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo state, now in the present Ekiti state on June 12, 1963.

His birth was foretold that he was not an ordinary child; that he was anointed from his mother’s womb. He spent 15 months in the womb before his birth. Moreover, a day before his naming ceremony, he miraculously survived a mishap that would have claimed his life. A blast from a quarry in the community had flung a large rock through the roof of where he was laid, but he was untouched.

Prophet T.B. Joshua started from nowhere, but yet has offered so much to uplift and deliver nations and her citizens across the globe. His journey is a humble story of how God raised a young man from a poverty-stricken home to lead a dynamic, multifaceted and global ministry that attracts millions worldwide to witness the reality of God’s power. Prophet T.B Joshua is happily married to Evelyn Joshua and is blessed with three children.

World over, Prophet T.B Joshua has trained people in different areas of specialization and human endeavour. He has equally helped built the capacity of youths. T.B Joshua laid the foundation of his charity in 1989, which has touched the lives of millions of people all over the World. What he does across the globe has enhanced the image of Nigeria in international scene.

According to Forbes Magazine, Prophet T.B Joshua and Emmanuel Television Partners have spent over two hundred million dollars on charity worldwide. He is a care-giver who found fulfillment in the joy of others. Prophet T.B Joshua has provided for the physically challenged, the aged, the orphans, widows, widowers, the needy, the helpless, the forgotten, the abandoned and the oppressed.

The less privileged ones have found succour in Prophet T.B Joshua. He built houses for the poor, gave free food and Medicare as well as paid school fees for indigent ones. Over twelve thousands students have been benefiting from his scholarship programme worldwide. Some of the students have bagged their B.Sc, Master’s and doctorate degrees in various fields of discipline. In addition, over two thousand staff are on his payroll in his ministry. This goes to show that Prophet T.B Joshua is a priceless jewel.

During the 2013 earthquake in Haiti, Prophet T.B Joshua sent a medical team to the affected areas. The team established a field hospital called “Clinique Emmanuel”. Countries such as India, Philippines and Ghana have also felt the philanthropic gesture of T.B Joshua during periods of natural disasters. More so, T.B Joshua and partners assisted victims of earthquake that struck Ecuador in 2016 by providing relief materials worth about five hundred million dollars.

Nigerians are also not left out in his humanitarian services. Those deported from various parts of the world have received succour and rehabilitation from the man of God, among so many other humanitarian gestures. Indeed, God has used T.B Joshua mightily to heal and deliver a lot of souls from bondage.

Again, T.B Joshua’s teachings are life changing. They refresh and transform destinies and prepare one for a very fulfilling, fruitful and rewarding experience with God’s words. Every segment of T.B Joshua’s sermon is brimmed with an effusion of divine revelation and power that transforms the lives and destinies of congregation and viewers all over the world.

Thus, we, the partners, wise men, SCOAN Family and Admirers, celebrate your birthday. We pray that God, in His infinite mercy, will give you long life, strength and more anointing to continue the work of God to man worldwide. Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua (aka T.B Joshua), hearty cheers at 56. Once more, happy birthday and many happy returns. Better is not good enough, the best is yet to come.

 

TB Joshua 56 Birthday, Love is the greatest

Tb Joshua 56 birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TB JOSHUA!

By Patrick Iwelunmor

As Prophet T.B Joshua clocks fifty-six years on his sojourn through this earth today, the Prophet’s towering status in Christendom cannot be wished away by mere birthday wishes. The enigmatic man of God deserves to be reminded that his crusades against the dark forces of our existence have attained immortality in the minds and hearts of those who truly understand the teachings of Jesus Christ, especially those based on the concept and mystery of love.

The cardinal essence of Christ’s mission in the world was to bring love to a frail and condemned humanity, which led to His eventual death on the cross, even when He had earlier mustered the human nature to resist that fatal saga.

Prophet T.B. Joshua’s concept of Christianity best exemplifies the foregoing Christological epistemology. In a world where many men of God are at daggers-drawn against one another, the humble, Arigidi-Akoko-born cleric has maintained that soldiers of the Kingdom must not be divided against themselves. He has refused to join issues with any pastor or ministry, even in the face of malicious criticisms. Instead, he has always deployed love and the dignity of eloquent silence, as instructed by Christ Himself.

Aside his innumerable works of charity within and beyond the shores of Africa, Prophet T.B. Joshua’s ministry is perhaps the only Christian ministry that does not discriminate against other faiths, knowing that Christ Himself came to save the entire world and not a portion of it. During Sallah celebrations, Muslim faithful visit his church to celebrate with him because by his very unbiased and non-partisan nature, he has broken every stricture that tends to instigate the barriers of tribe, ethnicity, race and religion against humanity.

In his world-view, love is supreme, just as it remains the greatest commandment. This explains the reason behind his untiring giving nature. He reckons that any man of God propelled by the spirit of love would not want to amass all the material things of this world to himself while the population of the needy keeps swelling by the day.

Other well-meaning men of God should continue to think about others more than themselves. It is anti-Christ to preach the Word to the needy without providing for them what Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State fame would call ‘stomach infrastructure’. Jesus Himself provided ‘stomach infrastructure’ when he fed five thousand people distracted from hearing his sermon by hunger.

Religious leaders are hereby enjoined to feed God’s flock not with the Word alone but with those other human needs that may hinder them from concentrating on the Word. At 56, Prophet TB Joshua’s pragmatic exemplification of the spirit of love should be a rallying point for all Kingdom crusaders to win the war against the dark forces of this earth.

WORLD ACCLAIMED PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA AND INSPIRATION BEHIND THE EMMANUEL TV

BY Ihechukwu Njoku

Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua turns 56 on Wednesday June 12, 2019 – but the respected cleric has an unusual message for those who wish to celebrate the occasion.

“If you really love your pastor, you should dedicate June 12th to take your time to meet the sick ones, to have friends who have been bedridden for many years,” Joshua told the teeming multi-national congregants at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).

“If you really love your pastor, you should dedicate June 12th to take your time to meet the sick ones, to have friends who have been bedridden for many years – TB JOSHUA

“Many of them have been abandoned for years,” he extolled his listeners in a sermon subsequently uploaded to YouTube. “Be their family. Give them your number and have theirs… Introduce your children to this good habit. That is a divine legacy – so that they can continue when you are no longer living.”

“There is no gathering; there is no coming together to cut a cake,” he emphasised.  “On June 12th, rededicate yourself to the acts of giving. The giving we are talking about should not be selective. When you are doing that, your destiny will be reshaped.”

Joshua then spoke on the paramount virtues of love. “The love you give away is the only love you keep,”he counselled. “You are a human being not because you have ability to think but because you have ability to love.”

The cleric’s assertion regarding his birthday comes on the heels of his refusal to collect an offering at an event in UK attended by over 15,000 people, rather insisting that attendees give the offering to their “neighbours in need”.

Joshua was born 56 years ago in a humble, poverty-stricken home in Arigidi-Akoko in Ondo State, Nigeria but has risen to be counted as one of Africa’s most influential individuals and his church the foremost destination for religious tourism in West Africa.

DAY OF DUMBFOUNDING MIRACLES AS T.B. JOSHUA’S EMMANUEL TV HOLDS EXPLOSIVE CRUSADE IN SHEFFIELD, U.K.

WORLD ACCLAIMED PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA AND INSPIRATION BEHIND
THE EMMANUEL TV REVIVAL IN SHEFFIELD, UK

By Sola Ojewusi

Prophet T.B. Joshua, founder and Senior Prophet of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, is immensely popular in his homeland, Nigeria and the rest of Africa. Despite this popularity, the saying that a Prophet is never fully appreciated in his own homeland rings true in the rather sad and unfathomable way in which the man’s immense contributions, especially religious and charity works are hardly honoured in Africa. But going by the spate of foreign spiritual engagements that have flooded his ministry over the years, especially in these turbulent times, one could easily say that what has not been duly given to Joshua at home is being showered on him in foreign lands. Recent succession of amazing and hugely successful international crusades and revivals programmes coming the way of the Man of God proves this.

On June 1, 2019 the much anticipated crusade in the United Kingdom finally held and from the vibe that followed the event and its live telecast on the Emmanuel TV channel around the world, the pre-crusade hype that this would be a high-profile revival programme did not disappoint. Our correspondent learned that this revival event which was held due to popular demand and as a culmination of years of yearnings from the UK for more tastes of the T.B. Joshua spiritual gifts was a huge success.

HOW THE CITY OF SHEFFIELD, U.K. WAS SET AGOG FOR HOURS

Over the years, news emanating from the UK, with a wide cosmopolitan populace, indicate that millions of UK residents have been yearning for revivals in the British Isles and nearby territories. Well, that hunger was great satiated on June 1 this year when the Emmanuel TV Crusade train under the immanent inspiration of Prophet T.B. Joshua finally berthed in Sheffield. Information from national and international news channels indicate that the meticulous and prayerful preparations finally paid off as the FlyDSA ARENA in Sheffield, UK, VENUE OF THE CRUSADE was filled to the brim. The International Evangelist and Christian Miracle Worker, Prophet T.B. Joshua, actually sent a high-powered team to the UK for a Grand Revival, the kind of which the UK had never witnessed and, despite the unavoidable absence of the Man of God himself, the great works of miracle that took place at the event through the ministrations of Joshua’s disciples, Evangelists Chris, Racine and Yinka would reverberate for years to come. Tagged “The Emmanuel TV UK Revival”, reports from across Europe indicate that this event, days after it ended, remains the top buzz among UK residents.

The revival programme in Sheffield actually gave greater stimulus to the growing reputation of T.B Joshua in the UK since the Anointing Water revolution of East London in 2013. Information available to our Correspondent revealed that TB Joshua created a storm of spiritual revival in the UK in that year in the wake of his Anointing Water Revival programme that took place at the Troxy Theatre in East London on Sunday, November 10, 2013. During that event, according to our source, not less than 10,000 worshippers witnessed the T.B. Joshua phenomenon. Joining their counterparts from all over the United Kingdom were pilgrims from countries like Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, France, Belgium, United Arab Emirates, India, Romania, Slovakia, Canada, Austria, Brunei, Australia and Holland. And such was the vastness of the crowd that the line of worshippers trying to gain entry into the venue extended for over a kilometre around and beyond the adjoining streets of The Troxy.

Since these Morning Water Revivals, checks indicate, thousands had travelled to the Lagos, Nigeria headquarters of the SCOAN while millions more who are unable to travel had been looking forward to T.B. Joshua’s coming. Conventional wisdom was that if the events at the Troxy in 2013 and a follow-up Morning Water Revival at the New Bingley Hall, Birmingham and at the University of West London, Brentford a bit later could garner such overwhelming attendances, despite the fact that T.B. Joshua was not physically in attendance, his revival at the Sheffield Revival would surely attract an even more stupendous gathering of worshippers. And, surely, the Sheffield event did not disappoint. It turned out a classic example of the good old days of true Christian revival since the era of the Christ when astonishing, living miracles were performed.

The city of Sheffield had never seen such outpouring of astounding works of miracle. As the event took off without the physical presence of Prophet T.B. Joshua himself, some form of scepticism was natural, because the tendency was for some to think that, without the Man of God himself, miracles would be far and few between. However, what many would gratefully live to see that day was the reassuring fact that the Man of God has so imparted his disciples with the anointing that, present or not, the work of redemption must go on.

One of the amazing miracles of June 1 was that of Gemma Morilla whose healing proved that T.B. Joshua’s anointing transcends the four walls of any place where he is physically present; it radiates to any place in the world where air is breathed.

GEMMA MORILLA BEFORE AND AFTER HER HEALING IN SHEFFIELD

Gemma Morilla, a member of the National Association for the Blind in Spain, who had always relied on a guide dog to move around daily having been legally blind since the tender age of two due to a devastating ailment would soon discover this delightful truth. Having suffered less than 10% vision, for 35 years, Gemma could not in her wildest imagination know that the Sheffield crusade would put a stop to her suffering. At the Emmanuel TV UK Revival in Sheffield everything changed for Gemma after receiving a divine touch that brought her to full sight!

Gemma was not the lone beneficiary of this Christian redemption. Lorena, described as a traumatised terrorist attack survivor also received a dumbfounding miracle!!!
A survivor of the 11th March 2004 co-ordinated terrorist attack against four commuter trains in Madrid which killed 193 people and injured almost 2,000, Gemma suffered both physically and psychologically, including loss of earing in one ear, dependence on a wheelchair for mobility, shattered life, splintered mind and rheumatoid arthritis. According to Lorena at the event in Sheffield, Lorena: “I lost my memory, suffered urinary incontinence and became so depressed. I saw no reason to live.”  Lorena’s experience led her to contemplate suicide on many occasions but when she attended the Emmanuel TV UK Revival along with her Pastor, Andres Espinoza, travelling from Spain to Sheffield in search of a miracle, her dream came true after the SCOAN Minister of God, Racine, prayed for her. Like a dream, fifteen years of pain, hurt and trauma became a thing of the past! She abandoned her wheel chair and walked! Also, her left ear that was damaged by the blast yield of the bomb in Madrid was restored to full health along with the incessant fear that had gripped her since the terrorist attack.tb joshua uk crusade

There were many more miracles, including that of Pastor Mazzola Salvador, an Italy-based Argentinian whose nagging hernia suddenly disappeared;  Priscilla Morales, Spain-based Colombian whose deteriorating hip bones were restored to sound health; Mr. Kofi Ababio who was healed of Spondylosis of the spine; Mrs. Clara Ajakaiye, a US-based Nigerian Bank Manager whose arthritis-ridden knees were cured and Mr. Lee Gordon, the Malaysian whose depression and suicidal tendencies vanished at the crusade.

The June 1 event in Sheffield might have come and gone, the effects of the great miracles would surely reverberate in that city and around the world for a long time to come.

AND NAZARETH CAN’T WAIT

Having seen a taste of what could happen in a T.B. Joshua crusade in Sheffield, the nation of Israel is already in great anticipation. In approximately three weeks to the Revival in Sheffield, the T.B. Joshua train of evangelism would again descend on the city of Nazareth, ancient hometown of Jesus Christ in the State of Israel. What is even more exciting to the Israelis and other people around the world planning to be in Nazareth is the fact that, unlike Sheffield, T.B. Joshua would be physically present.

FLIER OF THE NAZARETH, ISRAEL REVIVAL PROGRAMME

Indications that something grand would soon take place in Israel began in Mid-2017 when T.B Joshua was invited to Israel by Israel-based Zaka, one of the world’s most prestigious charity organizations, in recognition of the Nigerian prophet’s humanitarian activities. During that visit, TB Joshua met with various dignitaries including the Mayor of Nazareth, Ali Salam, and the Minister of Communications, MK Ayoob Kara. During that meeting, we reliably gathered, the popular clergyman was pleaded with by the Mayor to soon organize an international crusade in Nazareth, Israel. “What a blessing meeting with you, Prophet T.B. Joshua,” Mayor Ali Salaam said then. “We can’t wait to have you for a revival in Nazareth. We are ready.”

At another meeting with T.B. Joshua, the Israeli Minister of Communications, Mr. MK Ayoob Kara who represented the government was effusive in his welcome of the world-acclaimed televangelist. “This is my friend,” enthused Mr. Kara in his welcome address. “Welcome, Prophet T.B. Joshua.”

The high profile meetings and the immense reputation of the Man of God, our correspondent learnt, prepared the ground for the explosive revival that has been scheduled to hold in Nazareth between 23rd and 24th of June 2019. Tagged “MEET T.B. JOSHUA IN NAZARETH, ISRAEL”, the revival meeting, at Nazareth’s Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice would afford congregants the very unique opportunity of “Experiencing the Footprints of Jesus Christ” under the guidance of the internationally celebrated Prophet of God.

And like in the UK, feelers from the Middle East show that that region is agog with the good news of the anticipated explosive revival in the land of Jesus’ birth. Another unique touch to this revival is that it would be the first time such high-profile revival would be held by a Nigerian prophet, especially in the native land of The Christ.

June is surely a month of great blessings for the people of the UK and Israel, Jesus’ native land.

Shocking, TB Joshua Sends Millions Of Congregants To Their Neighbours In The Uk

tb joshua uk revival

More than 15,000 gathered in the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield, UK for the ‘Emmanuel TV UK Revival

By Ihechukwu Njoku

A YouTube video from unconventional Nigerian prophet, T.B. Joshua, has surfaced, showing what it calls “the largest church offering never collected”.

On June 1st, 2019, more than 15,000 gathered in the prestigious FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield, UK for an event dubbed the ‘Emmanuel TV UK Revival’.

In events of such nature, it is customary for attendees to pay a ticket fee and for the minister to also announce an offering – oftentimes more than once – in order to accrue financial support.

Joshua, however, broke the protocol. Although he was not physically present at the event, one of his ministers asked all present at the packed-out indoor stadium to rise in anticipation of a large-scale offering.

“It is true there is need for your offering here,”he said, adding that such acts did have Biblical backing. “But there are some of your neighbours who need this offering more than we do.”

To the bewilderment of the multinational congregants, he then asked everyone to rather use their intended offering to help a neighbour in need, stressing that such love should not be discriminatory but freely rendered to all “irrespective of religion, race, background or ethnicity.”

“See your contribution to others daily as an assignment from God… God measures our lives by our love for our neighbour,” he stressed, in a sermon titled ‘The Core Of God’s Message To Mankind’. “We are what we do, not only what we say – so match your actions with your words.”

The event, held at one of the UK’s primary sport and entertainment arenas, was free-entry – the first time in the venue’s history for organisers to make such a rare move.

“If you pay a fee to enter the event today, whatever you claim to receive is not from the love of God because healing, deliverance and miracles cannot be exchanged with whatever,”the minister from The SCOAN emphasised, as overflow crowds swarmed outside.

If, he added, any attendee still wished to provide support to the ministry, that decision should be “carefully examined in the light of God’s Word because love is a relationship” and not simply offered because of attendance at the event.

“Let it come from your heart,”he pointedly told the sombre audience – many of whom had travelled from as far as the Americas, Asia and Australia to participate.

The uncommon message, coupled with the remarkable miracles that unfolded thereafter, elicited lots of reactions on social media.

“I have NEVER seen a pastor refuse to collect an offering, most especially one in such a large event in a country like England, which would probably bring in millions,” Phil, a British attendee at the event, reflected on Instagram.

“For all pastors who act like businessmen in the ministry and preach more about prosperity than salvation, this is a big wake-up call,” Judith opined on Facebook, lamenting the intertwining of ministry and money-making which has led to scepticism and cynicism towards evangelical Christianity in many quarters.

The ‘revival’, streamed live on YouTube and Facebook, has already been viewed by over 250,000 people.

Joshua’s next meeting is scheduled for Nazareth, Israel – the historic hometown of Jesus Christ – on June 23rd and 24th 2019.

One of the hallmarks of truly great men and women is their ability to shine beyond the estimation of their adversaries, even in the most difficult of situations.

The distinguishing factor for such people is that even when they seem to fall, they get even stronger in spirit and never fail to forge ahead

From infancy the traits of greatness are always very clear to see in such people for those who can truly perceive.

For such people, a clear vision, dedication, commitment, hard work and an unwavering commitment to God is a defining virtue. It does not really matter what their background may look like, the unique goal they have set for themselves is always the driving force.

For those who God has obviously created for a mission and are able to realize that early enough, the grace to excel is ever present.

Indeed, for Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly called T.B. Joshua, his life and impact on humanity could be likened to great book, each with an interesting chapter. This is in view of the fact that this great man of God is many things personified-apostle of our Lord, Jesus Christ, hope to millions of hopeless people globally, teacher, chorister, philanthropist, author, father of millions, hope personified, succor bearer, friend of the poor, a gift to this generation and more.

His church, Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) singularly brought Ikotun-Egbe once considered a jungle to prominence on the world map due to its impact on that neighbourhood.

This is because it’s coming to that environment was such that the big and mighty across the globe started trooping to that axis for spiritual healing.

With this came a major boom for the economy of Ikotun and its environs as millions of businesses sprang up to key into the great opportunity.

Hotel and allied business received a major boost, earning millions of dollars due to large numbers of foreign visitors trooping into Nigeria from across the world.

It was not for nothing therefore when hoteliers shouted from the roof tops that government should save their businesses when some people tried to take advantage of the controversial building collapse at the church to pull down TB. Joshua. This is instructive. SCOAN, Joshua’s church is on record as “Nigeria’s biggest tourist attraction and the most visited destination by tourists in Africa”.

The Federal Government had in the recent past through the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) acknowledged that six out of every ten foreign travelers coming into Nigeria are synagogue-bound, raking millions of dollars into government coffers in the process. Using technology which has made his job very impactful, Joshua has continued to reach all the nooks and crannies of the world like never before.

His church’s television channel, Emmanuel T.V, through which he preaches undiluted word of God is the world’s most viewed channel on YouTube.

One of the striking things about this great preacher of the word is that, not only does he emphasize holiness, he is never tired of preaching about the importance of love and giving, which he says are essential messages of Jesus Christ.

He even takes it further by practical demonstration, which is exemplified in action from time to time in different parts of the world.

Even Joshua’s critics acknowledge that he has no doubt demonstrated that he is number one friend of the poor around this clime. From the abundance that God has given him, the Prophet has reached out to millions of people from far and near, most of whom are not members of his church.

He has even taken it further by making his members toe the same line of giving to the needy in the society.

According to him, this was a major message of our Lord Jesus Christ and needed to be done to give hope to hopeless in the society.

Aside this, Joshua continually teaches that there is love in sharing because whatever God has given us does not belong to us alone.

It is therefore not surprising that SCOAN distributes lorry loads of food stuffs regularly to the needy in different parts of the country.

Though he has his own share of challenges like every human being, this great televangelist is a man not ready to be consumed by negatives. This he clearly demonstrated as a child with what seemed like a hopeless future.

However, his strong conviction which was sharpened by his early connection with the Bible opened his eyes to the words of God and marked a major mile stone in his life.

This no doubt is one of the things that confounds his detractors as they never fail to wonder where he gets the strength to rise when they think he has fallen.

Even Forbes, the famous international magazine had in 2011 described Joshua as third richest pastor in Nigeria, though the church did well by debunking the report.

The magazine must have relied on the Prophet’s philanthropic activities which covers many areas including scholarship, health, sports and more as the basis for this. For instance, Joshua’s church was reported to have sponsored a Nigerian student for a PhD at Oxford University in 2012 to the tune of one hundred thousand pounds, same for thousands of others sponsored from primary to university levels, locally and internationally.

This was aside providing over five hundred thousand dollars worth of humanitarian aid to victims of earthquake in Ecuador in April, 2016. The Forbes report however has its positive side as the report suggests that Joshua has a huge financial war chest. The truth of it all is that Forbes was only acknowledging that Joshua was expending so much in an assignment he is carrying out so diligently.

Other widely respected international magazines have also named him among the world’s most influential personalities.

However, it is a thing of joy that nobody has linked him with purchasing private jets and needless show of wealth in a nation so blessed, but with so many poor people. Also, he has not claimed to be far more popular than anyone, though the local and international media will not let him rest because of his ever-growing popularity.

Curiously, this is a man who rarely travels out of Nigeria to other parts of the world, yet has his presence felt in far distant places and loved by many who have never come across him, thanks to technology.

Even though his Arigidi-Akoko birth place may not feel his physical presence, but the people take pride in his touching their lives through regular support over the years through infrastructural support.

T.B. Joshua’s story is that of grass to grace and his people are excited that he is making them proud around the world, a feat for which they cannot but thank God.  Indeed, what the T.B. Joshua story teaches us are multi-faceted.

First, his life teaches us that God is the ultimate decider of our fate and in Him we must put our hopes and aspirations. Even Joshua practically demonstrated this by getting closer to God, using the Bible as a compass to navigate his future at a tender age.

Secondly, when God elevated him, he remained level-headed and demonstrated practical teachings of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Thirdly and most importantly, he has raised and is still raising leaders of the word to join others in raising Godly men to the glory of God and benefit of mankind.As he celebrates yet another milestone, on June 12, 2019, here is wishing the man in the Synagogue, Prophet T.B. Joshua, a happy birthday.

SCOAN Debunk Biafra Prophesy Falsehood

Flag of BiafraSome online media outlet, news site and blogs have been spreading fake news of a purported Prophecy by TB Joshua of the restoration of Biafra. A secessionist group in the Eastern part of Nigerian. According to the fake report, they claim the Prophet Prophecy that “Biafra will be restored without bloodshed.”

However, the Ministry of Prophet TB Joshua through their Only Official Facebook page, has come out to distance themselves from the alleged Prophecy, announcing that it was an outright falsehood.

ATTENTION: This is an official message from The SCOAN. There are false rumors and articles spreading on the internet that Prophet TB Joshua prophesied concerning the secessionist state Biafra. This is false. Prophet TB Joshua did not make any such prophecy. Beware of false rumors. Don’t listen to the father of lies, the sons of lies and the daughters of lies.
Please, do not sit somewhere, hear this or that and come to a hasty conclusion. God requires that we find out the truth from Him first and hold fast to that which is true, as the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:21.
