This is an official message from Prophet T.B. Joshua from his Facebook Page, ‘TB Joshua Ministries‘:
“The co-ordinators arranging groups to visit The SCOAN in each country of the world, don’t forget your promise when you were called to be co-ordinators.
“Your promise, if I may remind you, was to give rest to the sick, distressed and unsaved. This is the only we can commit more faith and love to the society of which we are a part. God’s goodness will continue towards us if we respond by obeying Him, by giving rest to others and by helping our neighbours.
“In Matthew 25:45, Jesus said, “Whatsoever you do or fail to do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto Me.” In other words, Jesus was saying here, “I have no farm where I expect you to work for me or an office where I expect you to help me in checking files. My farm and office are your fellow brothers. Whatever help you render to the least of them, whatever problem you help someone else to solve, that you render unto Me.”
“I have received many emails and newspaper reports on the internet complaining of registration fees of $100. What then makes us an evangelist? When people go to concerts, they also register with $100. If we are evangelists, co-ordinating for God’s sake, all our concerns, aspirations and heart desires must be subjected to the Gospel through works of charity by helping the sick, distressed and unsaved instead of collecting registration fees of $100 from them before giving succour, I mean, attending to them. This cannot be justified; it amounts to taking a portion of their situation. If we are focused on making money only, a large slice of life will pass us by. We should spend less on ourselves and more on others.
“Those who have already paid $100 for the registration should be refunded, for God’s sake. I am impressed by the prompt action of the co-ordinators in Tanzania and Zimbabwe who have been refunding the $100 paid by each person as a registration fee. I believe all others will act likewise.
“He who honours a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward.
