TB Joshua Hosts Historic Meeting in Nazareth, JESUS’ Hometown

tb joshua ministryBy Ihechukwu Njoku

Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua has just concluded a two-day event in Nazareth, the historic hometown of Jesus Christ.

The event tagged ‘Nazareth Meeting With TB Joshua’ was held at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice, a site of Biblical significance for Christians.

Thousands of international pilgrims flocked to the event in Northern Israel from over 50 nations, which was additionally broadcast live on Emmanuel TV and local Israeli television in Arabic and Hebrew.

Several prominent personalities and political figures, including the Tanzanian President John Magufuli – who was represented by his wife Janeth – were in attendance.

“I feel humbled walking in the footprints of Jesus,” Joshua told the multi-national crowd, stressing that it was “God’s design” for Jesus to come from Nazareth, which he described as “the morning of Christianity”.

In a heartfelt sermon titled, ‘We are known by our love’, the cleric spoke on the divine significance of love.

“What makes us human is not our ability to think but our ability to love. This means love is life and if we miss love, we miss life,” he exhorted the crowd, emphasising that love must be unconditional.

“If you want to love better, you should start with someone who hates you, has bad feelings towards you, who sees nothing good in you,” he stressed.

Continuing his message the following day, Joshua called on all present to “love one another irrespective of our religion or race for love comes from God”.

According to the cleric, “Love for fellow man breaks down all barriers; it melts all hindrances. Love has ears to hear the heart. It dissolves prejudices, misunderstanding and suspicion.”

Speaking practically, he added, “If we are able to overlook the failures, mistakes and weaknesses of our neighbour, then there is genuine love because there is no perfect man on earth.”

After his exhortation, the cleric began to pray individually for the thousands present at the free-entry event, many who came with various infirmities and sicknesses in hope of a miracle.

Li Gul Chua, who travelled from China, testified that she could walk freely without crutches for the first time in six years after Joshua prayed for her.

Many fell to the floor at Joshua’s touch, immediately rising to declare they were healed or delivered from ‘unclean spirits that tormented them’.

As the event neared completion, the cleric collected an offering to support the Nazareth area, further explaining how the choice of the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice to host the unique meeting unfolded.

“I visited here three years ago and I saw this place was abandoned,” he explained, showing clips of the unkempt area, overgrown with bushes during his first visit.

“Given the Scriptural significance of this place, I was moved to contact the Mayor, Ali Sallam, and ask his permission to renovate,” he continued, stating this was Emmanuel TV’s “contribution to the place where Jesus’ father and mother came from.”

Joshua also referenced the opposition from some religious figures that accompanied the announcement of his visit to Israel, which intensified in the days leading to the event. “Even though there was rancour, it was an act of God,” he submitted.

He called on the foreign pilgrims present to make Nazareth their “second home”, encouraging them to “visit places such as hospitals, schools and other areas that need your attention and show love because the love we give away is the only love we keep.”

“This is the first time in hundreds of years we have heard the name of Jesus proclaimed publicly in Nazareth,” Pastor Hadad, a Nazarene, emotionally commented, underscoring the significance of the event in the volatile, predominantly Muslim region.

“I used to see Jesus as just a story from history we used to attract tourists,” Itay, an Israeli tour guide, bluntly stated. “Today, I saw – through T.B. Joshua – that the name of Jesus actually has power.”

News of the event reached international media, with coverage in The New York Times, Reuters and Israel’s leading newspapers Haaretz and Jerusalem Post.

TB Joshua Meeting in Nazareth – Day One

By early Sunday afternoon, thousands of international visitors and locals were already streaming toward Mount Precipice, just outside Nazareth. They were of all ages, races and nationalities.

En route to the mount, an Italian painter named Lady Gioconda showed off a huge oil painting of TB Joshua that she had made as a gift for him. She had never before attended one of his events, nor had she ever been in Nazareth before. But she believes the Prophet will bring her the fame she seeks.

“He’s a super, super, super prophet,” she said, adding that she needs him in her work.

The crowd included Israelis, some of whom, like some visitors from other countries, were flying their country’s flag. A few even brought shofars.

A regular member of the church that Joshua founded, the Synagogue, Church of all Nations, said she came from Nigeria because she needed to strengthen her connection with Jesus. She had the feeling that this will be special, she said.

People from Haiti, Tanzania and the Czech Republic were eating watermelon together; all professed excitement. One, a priest from Tanzania, expressed the hope that they all feel Jesus there.

Many people were shading themselves from the sun with umbrellas bearing the name of the Gold Line appliance company. The umbrellas cost 20 shekels ($5.50). The watermelon was expensive at 50 shekels, but a glass of lemonade sold for just eight shekels and visor caps went for 15 to 20 shekels.

A Czech woman who is studying agriculture and economics said this was her first time in Israel, and she was excited to be at Mount Precipice. A Czech engineer said this visit will accomplish two things at the same time – meeting Joshua and visiting the holy site.

Kebela Ele of Botswana said her husband had left her for another woman and wants a divorce, which she does not wish to consent to. She brought the divorce papers to Israel to pray for divine intervention.

A German woman recounted seeing TB Joshua in England earlier this month but came to Israel to see him again. She loves him, she said. Asked what she was praying for, she said she would like to marry someone wonderful.

Ruth Gershonkopf of Ashkelon said she came “to get a new spirit from God.” She has a 10-year-old daughter who was in an accident at the age of 6, she explained with tears in her eyes, and she herself has cancer. She is hoping Joshua can help her daughter and keep her cancer from recurring.

One Tanzanian man wrapped himself in a tallit, a Jewish prayer shawl. He isn’t Jewish, but he loves Judaism, he explained, remarking that Israel is a wonderful country.

After the audience had enjoyed a gospel choir and songs in Arabic, in addition to a rousing rendition of the Hebrew song “Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu” (“We will yet have peace”), a Russian-speaking couple ascended to the stage with a baby. Through a translator, they told the audience that the woman had suffered six miscarriages; another child had died at birth. The child they were holding on stage was born after a meeting with Joshua, and the woman is also pregnant again.

Do you want a miracle too? the emcee asked. Yes! the audience roared back.

Another man got on stage and related how God used the Prophet to cure his stomach ailment. Thank God! God be praised! the audience shouted, clapping thunderously.

A woman said she had been an alcoholic who hated her daughter and beat her. But now, she loves both the girl and her husband. The husband, an Israeli, said he had gone to Nigeria and come back a new man.

Based on the published schedule, Joshua should have already made his appearance. Instead, the choir got the audience dancing and waving their hands in the air with songs about love for Jesus. Most of the audience sang along.

One of the singers exhorted the audience to raise their arms, love God and pour out their hearts so he could touch them. Another woman translated her English exhortations into Hebrew for the locals.

People who came to be healed

At the side of the stage, a screen featured live scenes of audience members falling to their knees, vomiting blood or even collapsing on the ground. A woman from Joshua’s television station who accompanied reporters explained that these were sick people who had come to be healed. The photographers didn’t spare the audience graphic close-ups. Israeli Magen David Adom emergency medics stationed in the crowd didn’t seem to know quite what to do.

TB Joshua finally ascended the stage almost two hours late. After telling the audience that Jesus and his mother, Mary, had come from the area, he recited verses from the New Testament. The thousands of people in the crowd were utterly silent. The only sound aside from Joshua’s voice was the faint call of the muezzins from Nazareth’s mosques.

He then left the stage to circulate among the crowd. He approached one man who began trembling uncontrollably. He physically touched people and gave one woman a light push. She fell to the ground.

The television crew gave the microphone to a woman with a neck brace. Joshua touched her. She sounded as if she was choking for a few seconds, but then removed the brace, raised her arms and expressed thanks to Jesus.

Next up was a disabled girl who stood up and began walking after Joshua touched her. She wept with excitement. The audience cheered.

And so it went, one after another, until sunset. Some of the people he touched screamed in ecstasy. Others went wild. The captions on the screen at the side of the stage explained that evil was leaving them. The audience watched in silence.

An Israeli security guard expressed the desire that TB Joshua touches him, too.

A woman from Vienna left the event in rapture, proclaiming that the God of TB Joshua had cured her.

Words of LOVE in Nazareth – TB Joshua

TB Joshua At the Amphitheater Mount Precipice

The more you love God, the more you love your neighbor! You cannot love God without loving your neighbor. Your neighbor can be those who do not share the same faith as you. How many of your neighbors are on your daily prayer list? Can you stand in the gap for them? Can you rejoice when they rejoice? Let us love one another irrespective of race or religion, for love comes from God. Whoever does not love does not love God, because God is love.

Meet TB Joshua in Nazareth, Israel on Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th June 2019 at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice and experience the footprints of Jesus Christ!

Prominent Nigerian cleric T.B. Joshua is scheduled to host a two-day event at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice in Nazareth, Israel – the historic hometown of Jesus Christ.

The event, tagged ‘Nazareth Meeting With TB Joshua’, is set for Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th June 2019 and is expected to attract thousands of foreign pilgrims into Israel.

Joshua has held several high-profile international events, predominantly in Latin America and Asia, but this will be his first meeting in the Middle East region.

“Nazareth is a humble place with people who live at peace. Our goal is to love one another just as ourselves, so everyone is welcome to attend our meetings,” the church said in a statement.

“We hope to be a blessing to anyone who interacts with us regardless of their religious or political background.”

Reports indicate Joshua’s visit will have a positive effect on the local economy, with leading travel agency Rashid Travel & Tours showing hotels in the Northern Israeli district are already fully booked.

At his ministry’s last event in Sheffield, UK on June 1st 2019, the FlyDSA Arena – one of the UK’s primary sport and entertainment venues – was filled to capacity with thousands more waiting outside, even though Joshua was not physically present.

Joshua has previously visited Israel on numerous occasions, meeting prominent Israeli dignitaries such as Minister of Tourism Yariv Lenin, Minister of Communications Ayoob Kara and Rabbi David Lau, the Chief Rabbi of Israel.

The event will be broadcast on Joshua’s religious television station, Emmanuel TV, as well as livestreamed to Joshua’s 1,300,000 YouTube subscribers and 3,500,000 Facebook followers.

The Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice was last used a decade ago when Pope Benedict XVI celebrated a Mass there.

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

tb joshua scoan emmanuel tv

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.

tb joshua nazareth

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.
