A DIVIDED WORLD AND THE WAY-OUT

God is the Owner of the Universe

Despite the dynamic nature of the human race, with innovative science, technology and modern discovering that has enhanced our contemporary civilization, coupled with the inspiring and consistent message of love and exemplary lifestyle of tolerance that Prophet T.B. Joshua’s ministry has continued to show to the world in both words and deeds, our contemporary world still appears to be more divided as ever before.

One would have thought that the 21st-century world would be a world of civility and tolerance. Where the human race would have learned from the past mistakes to accommodate themselves better, irrespective of differences. But this present generations of the so-called refined minds are totally the mirror of the opposite.

It seems there is always something new and controversial that bring division among us. Either by race, tribe, religion, beliefs, political ideology or philosophy. We always find a means to bring strives amongst ourselves. This ugly phenomenon is so heartbreaker that it seems there is no end to it. And the social news media has become a tool to exploit and promote this sharp division amongst us.

Our present world is filled with so much hate and condemnation that one is afraid to preach genuine love. Even one has to carefully count the words that come out of one’s mouth in other not to be misquoted or misrepresented. That is to tell you how controversial our world is right now.

Everyone seems to be right in their own eyes. Either it goes in my own way if not, it is bad and evil. Everyone has become the author of what is good and evil. We make decisions and support actions according to how it suits our greed and enhance our pride. The scripture which is the word of God is no longer the basis of truth. It is now being distorted by many who use it to suit their self-concept.

Even those that have good intentions are made to be seen as evil. Whatever is good is bad as far it is not from the person we like. Our hate has over clouded our sense of reasoning. There is no sense of decency amongst us. It looks as if we all are going back to the age of disorderliness, where there is no rule to the game. Everyone makes the rule for them self, play the game as they feel and also be the one to score them self. Everyone has created his own way of reasoning fact even in the midst of ignorance and delusion.

What is the way forward?

Self-Examination In Conformity With The Scripture Is The beginning to the Answer!

As Prophet T.B. Joshua rightly said, few things are more dangerous than a person with an unexamined life. I think it is time for every player in the world’s affair to examine themselves and ask themselves, at what ends is their words and actions to a better and righteous world. Where the advocate of peace, unity and tolerance will become the umpire of our modern civilization.

Irrespective of your political ideology wealthier, Democrat, Republican, Labour, Communist, left or right. We all should come together in one accord to pray for our leaders and nations. Including, those we are not in agreement with, they all need our prayers.

Satan seems to be gaining momentum in our respective nations today because we have deviated from our God-given values and instead embrace things that are contrary to God’s purpose for our nations.

This is why the ministry of T.B. Joshua, has continued to enlighten the world on the need to refocus their energy towards the real enemy that is responsible for the killings, stealing and destruction that is taken place in our today world.

Satan is our sole enemy. Let us come together as children of One Supreme God in the unity of purpose to fight against our collective enemy. If not, we will keep on wasting our time and energy fighting each other and making the world more uninhabitable for ourselves and generations to come. MAY GOD HEAL OUR WORLD AND MAY HIS PEACE NEVER DEPART FROM US ALL…AMEN!

BUILD GOD’S CHARACTER

Jesus knows there will be times fear will overwhelm us – the fear of loss, failure, false accusations, sickness and disease, today’s politics. Fear changes our focus. Fear is a more deceptive enemy than satan. Fear stops us from admitting our guilt. Not even your natural gifts, talent, education can help you to overcome fear.

The only way to overcome such fear is to build God’s character in your life. If you want to become God’s person, you must follow His process. For me, I meditate on the Word of God day and night and whatever I do prospers. No matter how unsteady your life appears to be, meditate on the Word of God day and night and whatever you do will prosper.

Your consistency in prayer and faithfulness is the way out. Please, constantly pray in your heart; pray without ceasing – in hymns, spiritual songs and making melodies in your heart to the Lord. A break in prayer would mean a break in faith and a break in faith is a break with God.

Remember, your enemy loses no time in plotting against you, so you should lose no time in committing yourself to God in prayer.

Video: T.B. Joshua reveals the ‘two Christs’ in the church!!!

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua has issued a stinging rebuke to the Church in an impassioned sermon, which has attracted over 70,000 views on YouTube in under one week.

“There has been a great mix-up in the Church,” Joshua stated in the message he preached on Sunday 30th September 2018. “It is the erroneous assumption that spiritual truths can be intellectual perceived,”he continued, stressing that being brought up in a Church background does not equate to ‘knowing Jesus’.

“Many people know about Christ but they don’t know Christ,” he added. “You can read your New Testament and still never find Jesus in it. You can be convinced that Jesus is the Son of God and still never find Jesus. You can be a publisher of the Bible.  You can know about Christ dying for you. You can head this or that religious organisation. You can be the Founder and General Overseer and still never know Jesus of Nazareth in the power of the Holy Ghost.”

According to the cleric, there are “two Christs”in the Church – “the Christ of story and of history and song – the baby Jesus”and “Christ which the Holy Spirit reveals”.

He went further to emphatically emphasise that “if you are reasoned into Christianity, some wise fellow can reason you out of it – unless you know the Holy Spirit… It is either the Holy Spirit or darkness.”

Joshua called congregants to a period of sober reflection about whether they were really Christians or merely “religious people”. “If today is your last day, where are you going,”he sombrely asked.

“If you are serving God without the Holy Spirit, you are serving a god you do not know,” he concluded, adding that this was the “greatest problem”faced by the Church today.

The message, which was titled ‘Knowing Jesus, Knowing The Holy Spirit,’ sparked reactions online from viewers of Joshua’s YouTube channel Emmanuel TV, which is nearing a whopping 1,000,000 subscribers.

“Listening to TB Joshua is like going to Harvard for free,”wrote Linda Atieno, an American. “Please don’t listen to anyone bad mouthing TB Joshua! Come and find for yourself the treasure in Nigeria – someone who will teach you how to grow closer and closer to God.”

NIGERIAN TEENAGER SOLD INTO SEXUAL SLAVERY IN LIBYA!!!

“I Slept With 20-25 Men Every Day…”

Her heart skipped a beat. Could it be that fortune had finally shone its face on her impoverished family? That she would finally leave the ‘hellhole’ she called home? “So, I won’t have to pay anything here,” she naively quipped, trying to process the enormity of the offer that had been so coyly presented. “Nothing. You will, of course, pay back once you reach Europe.” His toothless smile bordered on benign. But desperation dimmed the warning bells ringing within. Miss Beauty John accepted and the spirited 19-year-old prepared the scanty belongings she had in Akwa-Ibom State, Nigeria, for the ‘trip of a lifetime’.

It was 2015. Beauty tearfully kissed her mum and younger siblings farewell, promising she would call upon her arrival in Europe. The car first went to Kano State, where she was roughly pushed into another vehicle with several other intrepid travellers. Their destination was Agadez, Niger. As the vehicle hastily traversed the desert terrain at midnight, Beauty plucked up the courage to ask about the plane she would board to Europe. “Shut up, girl” was the only answer she got. There was no going back. In Agadez, Beauty was placed inside a Hilux vehicle alongside almost 20 others. A tortuous four-day journey through the Sahara Desert lay ahead. The sun beat relentlessly, the young Nigerian clinging onto a wooden stick as the vehicle hurtled through the endless dunes at breakneck speeds.

When Beauty arrived in Libya, a ‘connection-man’ was awaiting her. But the conditions on which she set out on her journey were about to be radically revised. She would have to ‘pay her ticket’ to Europe, he stoically informed her. How? By selling her own body for sex. Beauty convulsed, blurting out that this was not she travelled for. “That’s not my business; you belong to me now,” he retorted, striking her to the ground with a vicious blow. Beauty had been sold into sexual slavery – by her own countrymen. It took the teenager almost six months to raise the requisite money to ‘buy’ her freedom – an equivalent of N400,000. “I slept with between 20 to 25 men every day,” she winningly reminisced of her days in prostitution. Innocence robbed in the cruellest, most callous of fashions.

What transpired in the next 1,000 days are beyond what words can adequately convey. Beauty spent three long years in Libya – which she described as “hell on earth” – longing for the day she would ‘cross over’ to Europe. She worked as a cleaner in a hospital to support herself, saving up her meagre income to secure her journey. Finally setting sail in a makeshift rubber dinghy in late 2018, along with almost 100 others, Beauty had not even reached International Waters when their ship was flagged down by the Libyan coastguard. She was promptly imprisoned and finally repatriated back to Nigeria. “I came back with literally nothing,” she stated, adding that the clothes on her back were provided courtesy of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM). “I wasted three years of my life in Libya,” Beauty concluded. “But God kept me alive for a purpose – so my life can be a lesson to others. I plead with my fellow Nigerian youth not to take such a journey and end up in prostitution, like I did.”

Beauty was among the 60 Nigerians deported from Libya who came to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Friday 14th September 2018, where they were given N2m by Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners to help start their lives afresh in Nigeria.

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST

tb joshua, scoan

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“What we do for Christ is only a reflection of the relationship we have with God. If you want to be able to do great things, you need to have a great relationship. The greater the relationship, the greater the things we can do for God. It is my relationship with Him that brings about what I am doing for Him. It is your relationship with Him that brings about what you are doing for Him.

“If you want to have a ministry that is strong, our relationship must be strong. Life does not begin with a relationship with people. It begins with a relationship with God and that relationship overflows to people. I mean, our relationship should be first to God, and then to human beings. The main thing about Christianity is not the work we do but the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced by that relationship.”

– T.B. Joshua

JESUS KNOWS YOU!

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“If God is everywhere, in Heaven and on earth, then, where can we go from His presence? (Psalm 139:7) Sometimes, when we are in our privacy, we tend to think that no one is looking at us and that is why we go contrary to the will of our Creator. We forget that we are under His eye always. The Bible says He neither sleeps nor slumbers. He keeps watch over us, day and night.

Psalm 121:3-5 – “He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you—the LORD is your shade at your right hand.”

Everybody reading this – Jesus knows. He knows our past, present and our future.” – T.B. Joshua

Our God is God of purpose

Sit and reflect on life itself and you would discover that nothing happens by chance. It is the principle of life that for everything there is a purpose. Our God is God of purpose. There is a purpose for everything He created. Who knows what would have happened if there was day and no night at all. Who knows what would have happened if there were only women and no men at all. For everything God created, He assigned a definite purpose – a clear role. Remember, you are made not only in the image of God but also to live in a community. Without relating to others in a community, the reality of the image of God in us cannot be made manifest. Genuine spiritual experience needs to be tested in a real situation in order to expose the reality of the experience. By genuine spiritual experience, I mean the image of God in us which we manifest in the form of faithfulness, love, kindness, goodness, self-control, humility and the like as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23. If you say you are Christian, you are saying you are a divine image bearer of God. It means you mirror Christ and that your life comes from Christ. Except this claim is tested in a real situation, your claim would remain suspect.

As a Christian, no matter the situation you are facing, there is a purpose. Find out. Do a proper reflection and you would see that behind your situation lies God’s purpose for your life.
