A REASON TO CELEBRATE

As soon as the adoration music which had been enjoyed for some time was over, Prophet T.B. Joshua, bubbling with admiration for the Lord’s willingness and readiness to act now for His people, spoke spiritedly in praise of the Lord. In his words, Jesus blesses now, acts now, saves now and Jesus is NOW. He reminded the Church of the need to focus on the future in order to conquer the past. However bad or unfavourable the past must have been, focusing on the future is the best way to overcome it. A situation of persecution, hatred and failure in the past can be overcome by focusing on the future with its blessings. ‘My past is over’, he asked the congregants to repeat after him. If your past is not considered, then you have no problem. He cited the case of the adulterous woman who was to be stoned by the mob and how Jesus diffused the tension in them by asking any of them who had not committed a similar sin in the past to cast the first stone.

T.B. Joshua

As the congregation rose to their feet, he led them in confessions of faith: ‘I am justified. I am no longer condemned. Defeat and failure are things of the past. Thank You, Jesus.’ “The life of struggle, disappointment, failure, sickness, hatred and isolation is over. Take it, believe it and act on it. Your prayers of the past are not lost”, he assured his listeners. “You are here to reap your fruit. The day of payment is one on which all pressures and tensions are diffused because it is a day of reward”, he concluded.
WISEMAN, HARRY
Mounting the altar in succession to the prophet, Wiseman Harry in giving his message titled, DISCOVER YOUR REAL VALUE acknowledged and celebrated the omnipotence of the Lord. In his words, “If God is with us, nobody can be against us”. He recognised the day as the time for God to deliver, heal and save all His people. Jesus is the Word by whom God speaks to us. According to Hebrews 13:8 he maintained, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. This means, he explained, whatever is rooted in the Lord is stable, incontestable and untouchable. He reminded the Church that in life, we are in a situation everyday where we make decisions. When insulted, we decide whether to forgive them or insult them back. The question therefore is: are you making the right decisions or not? Are your decisions rooted in God’s Word? Whatever is rooted in God’s Word is permanent. Unless your decisions are rooted in God’s Word, they cannot stand at the time of great need. Whatever decisions you are making determine who you are before God. What is the greatest decision in life? To put your trust in Christ Jesus is the most important decision you can make in life. Life’s greatest decision is what you do with Jesus Christ. You should see life as Jesus does. You should see yourself as the way Jesus sees you to see your real value and the purpose of God.

Wise Man Harry


Citing Gen.37:5 and 9-11, he reminded the Church of Joseph and his dream. Joseph told his dream to his brothers and they hated him for it. Amplifying his point, he added: if you say you are too young or too old to succeed in life, consider the case of Joseph or Moses. Moses was called to be a deliverer at the age of 80. Nobody is too young or too old to succeed in life. The photograph of everyone’s future is planted in everyone by the Holy Spirit and it becomes a seed within everyone. It must be watered before it produces its harvest. This means, he exhorted the congregation, we have a role to play. The role is to believe that photograph. Joseph believed his dream and it came to pass. We want to remain in the warm arms of our parents, relations and country. We are afraid to venture into the cold arms of society. What many people are to be in life may not be situated in their parents’ house or country. That is why many people who are supposed to be leaders are still followers. Many of us wait for parents and society to agree with us before we can boldly step out. Man cannot discover a new ocean if he does not lose sight of the shore. When you believe your dream, you can become a man of vision. To a man of vision, there is always a future. This is why Joseph, in the dry pit, says, I know where I belong. Even in the face of temptation he says, this is not where I belong. I know my real value. Discover your real value by seeing whatever you are doing as an assignment from God. You cannot afford to disappoint Him because one day you will go back to Him. Life is too short to waste time on things that are evanescent, he concluded.
SCHOLARSHIP FOR THE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED
Many of the physically challenged trooped into the auditorium to give testimonies of the prophet’s charitable works for them in the past and hopefully looking forward for their school fees for the current session. Prophet T. B. Joshua admonished the assembly on the need to show concern for the needy and always help them.
The first physically challenged recipient was one Mr Salami Lukeman, a blind man who came out 2nd Class Upper in Law in the University of Lagos.

Mr Salami Lukeman

He said he had battled with much financial stress in course of his first degree programme before he met Prophet T.B. Joshua. He had come at the end of the first degree programme to seek further assistance to do the MA degree in Law.

Mr Salami Lukeman - Receiving the sum of N500,000

For that, according to him, he required a special computer costing about half a million naira. The man of God assured him of his readiness to sponsor him even to a Ph. D level. He gave him the sum of N500,000.
The second physically challenged recipient was Mrs Esther Oyema of Edo State. She had just come back from India with a gold medal that she won in the Common Wealth games. She recalled her frustrations as an athlete before she became a member of the SCOAN. She attributed most of her successes to the Anointing Water. She would use the Anointing Water any time she was out for one kind of selection or the other and, to God be the glory, she had always been successful. Her classification as being perfect for the Common Wealth games, she attributed to her prayer and the Anointing Water. It was in the Common Wealth games that she won the gold medal.

Esther Oyema

She thanked God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua as a catalyst for her success in sports. She complained about her crutches which inflicted physical pain on her and would opt for a wheelchair, if the man of God would be so kind. In his surprising reaction, the man of God gave her an automatic car – a Honda Acura car.

He additionally gave her the sum of one million naira to open an account, promising her a ticket to spend her holiday in any part of the world. Saying that he was acting for Nigeria, the prophet seized the opportunity to appeal to companies and other profit making establishments to come to the aid of the physically challenged and more especially the athletes among them. Government, according to him, cannot do everything.
The next was Mrs Onyinyechi, a physically challenged lady who enjoyed sponsorship in her first degree and a gift of a wheelchair from the man of God. She, now blessed with a husband, came, according to her, to ask the man of God for sponsorship in her second degree. Surprisingly again, the prophet, in addition to acceding to her plea, gave her a gift of a car. She was also given the sum of N200,000 to fuel the car. In thanking the man of God, the husband said he was not only flabbergasted and overwhelmed, but he was truly ‘flabberwhelmed’. The rest of the physically challenged were offered gifts of money and wheelchairs.

Onyinyechi - Receiving the sum of N200,000

The man of God sermonised on the benefits of doing charity works rather than heaping one’s wealth in banks. He advised that there is more blessing in works of charity and almsgiving than in piling wealth in banks. The best bank to put money in is charity work, he said.

Onyinyechi - Receiving the sum of N200,000 and a car

Money, he maintained, is not the right will for children because it brings trouble to them. The right will is to point them to success and leave your money for the needy. A total sum of eighteen million naira was spent on these gifts and scholarships.
DELIVERANCE AND PROPHECY
A video clip of the last Monday meeting was played concerning a mother and her son. In a prophecy in the said clip, Prophet T. B. Joshua said he saw a knife and blood and that the son would kill his mother by the following week if he was allowed to go without deliverance.

Yaye Zamgbo

The prophecy was about a lady and her son, by name Yaye Zamgbo both from Cameroon. In his testimony, Yaye Zamgbo confirmed the prophecy and admitted that he had a spirit of anger. He added that whenever he was angry, he would not want anybody to be close to him, especially his mother. He ended, pleading with the man of God for deliverance.

Yaye Zamgbo and Mother

His mother, Juliet confirmed both the prophecy and her son’s testimony. In his comments, the prophet maintained that revelations always come with deliverance. It is the role of the pastor to preach and that of Christ to make it happen, he affirmed.

The second video clip relates to a man and his fiancée. The clip revealed how, in course of the mass prayer, the fiancée fell to the ground and confessed she was a demon who used her evil power to destroy her fiancé. She also confessed to being a snake and had used her powers to get her husband sacked from work. She revealed that as soon as she entered the auditorium, she felt pain in her back and had been uncomfortable all along. In his reaction, the man introduced her as his fiancée and added that he was flabbergasted to see her fall in course of the mass prayer. The prophet however, opined that he regarded the two of them as disparate individuals in the Church and he would ask God, after her deliverance, whether their matching as a couple was by providence or not. Reacting to the video clip as played, the man of God announced that it was no use reminding the Church of their ugly past and that after the deliverance they were well matched in the eyes of God for the planned matrimony and encouraged them to follow the due process for connubial consummation.

The third video clip relates to a woman who called herself a prophetess in error. Reacting to her testimony and dream, the man of God told her that the snake that bit her in the dream was meant to kill her and that neither she nor the prophet who christened her prophetess was one. Delivered, she and her husband, Pastor Uche of Redeem Church of God thanked the man of God profusely, both calling him the best Daddy. Pastor Uche bemoaned his life as a person who, after working very hard as a pastor and planting many branches of his church, realised that he had not achieved much as a person.

Pastor Uche and Wife

He further revealed that his coming to The SCOAN was partly prompted by a dream in which he saw Prophet T. B. Joshua. He told the congregation and the whole world that there is God in this Church and that since his stay in the Church, he had not had any nightmares.

The next testimony came from Mrs Mary Matthew, a witchdoctor who, among many atrocities committed by her, revealed that she caused the deaths of a couple because of a land case. Her powers were shrouded in her dreadlocks which had remained unshaven and unkempt for fourteen years.

Prophet T.B. Joshua prophecying to Mrs Mary Matthew that she is a witchdoctor

Of all her nine children, according to her daughter who accompanied her, she had killed eight leaving only her.

Mrs Mary Matthew

The man of God never encouraged much revelation of her atrocities as they were awful. He however, assured the only surviving daughter of her security in the Lord saying that her meat would not be palatable to the demon.

CANCER PATIENTS HEALED
A video clip of Mrs Florence Ajuonuma with her leg ulcer was activated. It showed how much for nine years the ulcer had threatened the whole leg; so much that amputation became advisable.

She had been to hospitals without a solution. She came to The SCOAN for prayer and it was given her by the prophet.

Prophet T.B. Joshua prays for Mrs Florence at the prayerline section of the Church

Soon after the prayer, the ulcer closed up in healing.

Mrs Florence - Came back to The SCOAN few weeks later to share her testimony

She, accompanied by her husband, came forward in the service to glorify the Lord.

Mrs Florence and Husband


The next was a cancer case which affected one Mr Soda from Togo. It was cancer of the arm which threatened the arm with amputation. It was one of the Wise Men, Harry that prayed for him to usher in the healing. He came forward to glorify God for His mercy.

    The Synagogue Church Of All Nations is the only church where the demonstration of the LORD’S LIVING WORD is brought to life.
    Excellence of teaching is demonstrated in the disciples that have been born out of the SYNAGOGUE.This shows that where the LORD JESUS is involved careful following of His footsteps is apparent and imperative.
    Simplicity in teaching which is the norm at the Church is now being observed in The Wise Men’s execution of their sermons.
    Giving, as instructed by JESUS CHRIST, is brought to live action every Sunday and this results in people understanding how true love that comes from Christ can still be passed on to the members of the body of Christ who are in lack.
    Healing is part and parcel of CHRIST’S presence and this is demonstrated week in week out just to demonstrate that GOD never gets tired.
    God is still saying something through the SYNAGOGUE CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS.
    SHALOM!!!

  • We really thank God for the gift from heaven, Prophet TB Joshua. Every Sunday is different from the previous one. This is a testimony of the move of the Holy Spirit at SCOAN.

Joshua, you are one of the revealed sons of God to manifest His Almighty power to deliver the oppreseed, suppressed, demonized, poor, needy, destitute, abandoned cast-out of society. May the Lord God Almighty continue to shower you with his divine power to de-stabilize the kingdom of the enemy. Praise the Lord!

  • Ray D N

    I could not stop tears falling out of my eyes when I watched the replay of the video of this ministration of aid to the physically challenged. I realised that Pastor TB Joshua has a big heart. It is a gesture worth of emulation by all regardless of race or creed. It is the one mission that prompted me to partner with emmanuel tv. It is unfortunate however that the transfer of funds across national boundaries is a bit complicated. When you know that you contribution will always help someone in need it becomes worth all the effort. This is a just act, a labour of love. The best way to show love is by giving. We may give help in cash, material aid such as food and clothing or immaterial things such as our time, company, health care and entertainment to mention just a few examples. So Brothers and Sisters go on and show love. To God be the glory.
