The Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN

The visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to Lagos, specifically to the New Afrika Shrine dedicated to the ground-breaking music of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, has attracted attention to the vibrant megacity’s most visited tourist destinations.

In a report published in The Nation Newspaper, T.B. Joshua’s famed Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) unsurprisingly tops the list of the most visited Lagos tourist attractions.

According to the report, The SCOAN “attracts the highest number of tourists not just to Lagos, but to Nigeria as a whole… The steady number of tourists that keeps streaming to the church is a testament to its global popularity.”

The article additionally cites Joshua’s ability to attract religious tourists who come “to find solutions to their physical and spiritual ailments” all year round, as opposed to those attending a seasonal event.

“The church does not have a low or high season… It has been visited by many sitting heads of governments, ex-presidents and foreign presidential candidates; many went on to win their elections.”

After The SCOAN comes The New Afrika Shrine which was the centre of attention during Macron’s visit.

It serves as the host location of the annual Felabration music festival, as well as showcasing exclusive photo galleries of Fela and music performances by Femi Kuti and Seun Kuti.

The Nation further mentions the allure of Nike Arts Gallery, Freedom Park, Terra Kulture, Fela’s Museum, Iga Idugaran, Eko Atlantic City, Elegushi Beach and the National Museum to round off Lagos’ most popular tourist sites.

TB JOSHUA AIDS 36 NIGERIAN DEPORTEES FROM LYBIA WITH ₦1,350,000

At the entrance of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations 36 frayed Nigerians deported from Libya, including a few from Morocco, found refuge from Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners who supported them with food and the sum of ₦1,350,000. The group explained that they had heard how T.B. Joshua had been helping deportees, so they immediately decided to rush to the church after their plane landed.

Many described their illegal journey and experience in the northern African nations as a horrible ordeal. “It was just like Hell” Mr. Joshua, the head speaker of the group exclaimed. “People are dying in Libya. They’re killing, destroying, and burning people also collecting their things.” He said. He described the dreadful occurrences saying, “They are doing human trafficking – selling humans like their selling goats and cows.”

Miss Yusuf, one of six women in the group, said. “They rape some girls while they sell some others. I was deported because I told my Madame I can’t work with her anymore, so she took me to prison.” She discouraged any of her fellow Nigerians from making the same illegal journey as she did. “I am happy to be back in my country.” She said.

“There can be no loving without giving.” – Prophet T.B. Joshua

Video: Pray Against The Interruption Of Democracy In Nigeria – TB Joshua

“I have a message for my country (Nigeria) and I want you to pray with me. After the message, you will join me in prayer. This is three times I am having this message.

The first time I had the dream, I prayed and fasted on my own. The second time, I prayed and fasted again. But this third time, you must join me in prayer. You must join me in prayer because two believers are better than one.

The Lord said I should tell the nation and leaders to pray against the interruption of the democratic practice. Pray against the interruption of democratic practice.

You have to join me in prayer for the nation. The Lord gave me the prayers to offer as well because in this case, there must be prayers given to you. What are the prayers?

  1. The Lord should give our leaders greater understanding of God’s heart.
  2. The Lord should give them the discretion to guide their hearts.
  3. The Lord should give them understanding that will protect them and wisdom that will rescue them.

Thank you for joining me in prayer. That is the voice of God. The president’s heart is like a stream of water in the hands of God and He can control it wherever He wants.” – T.B. Joshua (Sunday 01.07.18)

FEW GOOD MEN

scoan tb joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Some time back I went to see a prominent and well-respected man of God to discuss national issues and to ask him to pray for the nation.

When I got there I saw a good-looking young man with him. He treated the young man with such love, affection and kindness that I thought he was his son.

When I asked him he said that he was not his son but someone that he took into his Church and that he had more or less adopted.

He said that the young man’s whole family, including his parents, brothers and sisters had been wiped out all in one night by a group of cold-blooded butchers and that during the killing spree the young man himself had had his throat slit open and was left for dead.

He said that when he heard the story he was moved and decided to look for the Youngman, take him in and look after him even though he had never met him before and he did not know his family. Such gestures and acts of kindness are rare and consequently, I was deeply touched.

On my way out I saw the young man again and this time I looked at him more closely. I noticed that there was a deep and long scar across his throat which had clearly healed over a period of time but which was nevertheless still visible.

I also noticed that he looked confident, happy and relaxed despite his past travails and ordeal. As I left the Church and drove off in my car I thought to myself that this is a true man of God.

He took in and assisted the poor, the afflicted, the weak, the suffering and the vulnerable and he not only nurtured and strengthened them but he also gave them hope again.

That is surely what being a preacher, a pastor and a servant of God is all about: to care for the stranger, to bring healing to the sick, to heal the broken-hearted, to set the captives free and to be a good Samaritan.

This aspect of the glorious gospel of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in my view, is even more important than all the prophecies and miracles.

It is only a truly strong man that is filled with the Spirit of God that goes out of his way to help those that are suffering, in danger or in need.

The weak, the irresponsible and the morally reprehensible never help anyone but themselves whilst the strong, the responsible and the profoundly good are more than happy to lend a helping hand to those that are less fortunate. That is the message of Christ: to love and to do unto others as we would do unto ourselves and that is why the Holy Bible says “thou shall know them by their fruits”.

It is a joy and a relief to know that we still have such men in the Body of Christ and on our shores.

The Pastors name is Prophet T.B. Joshua and his Church is called Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

No matter what anyone may say or feel about this deeply committed and compassionate man the truth is as follows:

If we had more leaders and clerics that showed as much compassion and love for the poor, the helpless and the suffering as he does, Nigeria would be a much better place.

T.B. Joshua turned 55 years old on June 12th. Once again I wish him a happy birthday. He has done us proud.

T.B. JOSHUA SUPPORTS STRANDED NIGERIAN DEPORTEES FROM ALGERIA

“They left us in the desert for two months!”

On Saturday June 23, 2018 a group of 15 withered, battered and hungry Nigerian deportees from Algeria came to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) seeking refuge. Among them were men, woman, the elderly and children.

Mr Godwin Agu was a truck driver in Nigeria who left for Algeria to look for employment but struggled to find paying work. “After you work, they refuse to pay you money,” he cried. He, his wife and two Algerian-born children were suddenly deported after living in the country since 2013. “Police came, broke my door and took all my property, my money and even my babies’ clothes!” He then described in detail the long and difficult journey back to Nigeria they had been on since May 7, 2018. “They left us in the desert for two months!” he explained. “I was there to working for my family and I came back with nothing.” His wife, Ginika Agu said, “We went to Algeria for our future but it’s not what we thought. We lost many things and many people in the desert”.

Faith Oka was a hair stylist who left Nigeria on the tales of easy money in Algeria. “When we got there, it was really hard. We don’t have freedom like in Nigeria. They can take your property, attack you and rape you because they know you don’t have any documents”. She explained how she and her husband were separated after both being deported from the northern country. “I don’t know if anything has happened to him,” she cried.

After learning of their dilemma, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners quickly rushed to their aid, providing hot meals for the group along with foodstuffs entailing large bags of rice and the sum of ₦450,000 to help start their lives afresh in Nigeria.

GOD’S BLESSING DOES NOT ADD SORROW

tb joshua scoan emmanuel.tv

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“Anything the children of light have, satan has the counterfeit of them. We have the original grace but satan has the photocopy of it, which cannot stand the test of time. This is what Jesus meant when He said to His disciples, “My peace I give you, not as the world gives” (John 14:27). The blessing of God enriches the soul for eternity while that given by the world enriches the body temporarily. The blessing given by God is free – no condition attached; while that given by the world is conditional – that is, there are strings. The blessing of God does not need to be serviced. If we were to service the sun, rain, air and all other free gifts of God, how much do you think we would pay to get the air we breathe?

“Remember how much it costs you to look good in the eyes of the world. Remember how much it costs you to acquire your makeup kits. Sometimes you need to make costly sacrifice to service whatever blessing you receive from the world; God’s blessing does not add sorrow while that given by the world has sorrow attached (Psalm 37:25).

“Blessed is the man who follows the path of God – even in darkness, light shines, dawns for the upright. They are strong because they rely upon God for vindication, upholding, provision, stronghold, refuge and salvation. They persist in doing good, not allowing external pressure to change their conduct. If we make God our heart’s delight, we shall have our heart’s desire.

“The blessing of the world is a fading thing and so is the life itself on which it is bestowed. As the blessing is fading away, so is the life that carries it.”

– T.B. Joshua

SPEAK WHAT YOU BELIEVE!

tb joshua scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“Imagine what would have happened if David had not spoken the Word of faith in his encounter with Goliath (1 Samuel 17:45-50). Imagine the destruction he would have invited to himself and the people of Israel.

1) God would not have heard him.

2) He would have been destroyed in the hands of Goliath.

3) The people of Israel would have been routed.

“If he had not spoken the Word of faith, his word would not only have been idle, it would have been very destructive. If David were not to speak the Word of faith, he would have considered the size of the giant. I mean, he would have been intimidated by the size and armour of his adversary. Remember, the giant was better armed than David in the physical. Apart from his size, he had a spear, javelin, machete and a shield, as against small David, barely with a simple catapult.

“His people looked on to see what would become of the small David after his encounter with Goliath. Among them were his relations, his friends, his enemies, those who believed in him and those who did not – they were all watching to see the outcome of his faith. Now at the battlefield, if what David spoke with his mouth were not what he believed in his heart, imagine what would have become of him, now that he was face to face with the giant. His word would have been idle, meaningless and at that point destructive.

“Imagine what will become of you hereafter if you are speaking with your mouth what you do not believe in your heart – your words will be idle, meaningless and destructive. Speak what you believe. If you are not heard by God, you would be heard by satan. That is, if you cannot deliver, you will be delivered.”

– T.B. Joshua
