It was another wonderful day indeed; a day of thanksgiving for the mighty things God has done in the life of His anointed servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua and The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations.
The Sunday service started with the opening prayers and superb rendition from the splendid choristers. When Prophet T.B. Joshua came, he made known to the congregation the need for them to watch the video of his early ministry and see how far God has taken him as well as The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. He went further to say that the record of his early ministry is not in any way intended to say he has arrived or to show off but, “Better is not good enough, the best is always yet to come”. The Bible says if the Lord sees us through a battle, it is in our own interest to say, “Thank you, Jesus Christ”.
Prophet T.B. Joshua is just one of those who have submitted to the will of God. In the video of his early ministry, he acknowledges that if God had chosen works rather than grace, no one would merit His mercy. He explained that, “Wisdom in the practical sense of ability and skill cannot guarantee success in life. It is the goodness of our cause that interests God more than the physical and mental disposition. This explains why the weak people like me who are without great strength, a smooth tongue, fast legs or high learning should ever remain grateful to God”.
Right from the outset of his incredible journey, the hand of God has been clearly evident in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua. The prophecies he gave on the mountain in his early years about his ministry becoming an international ministry in future are being vindicated. Today, people from different races, countries, cultures and tribes flock into the church on a regular basis to seek the face of God through his anointed servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua. His ministry today clearly shows that we are all one in the sight of God, the Almighty regardless of colour, race, nationality or sex.
As the saying goes, “Everything big starts little”. The ministry of the T.B. Joshua started very little – from worshipping under the tree to a coliseum. The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations today stands out on its own as a home for all. One might wonder at the stage the ministry is now but little do we know how the ministry has in the time past gone through thick and thin to reach its present state in both structure and capacity.
The video showed the humble nature of the prophet and how he dedicated his entire life to serving God and the people he pastured. It was really marvellous to see Prophet T.B. Joshua as he vigorously and enthusiastically washed the toilets of his ministry and also cleaned the church fans and benches in a zealous manner. That alone showed the depth of humility in the prophet’s life. Watching the video, one could see that Prophet T.B. Joshua had passed through various stages in life, for as he stated, “In the University of God, however brilliant you may be, you will not be given double promotion, you will have to take each course because each course serves a purpose”. Indeed, God has taken him through many stages in life to reach where he is today.
One can only come to a conclusion that Prophet T.B. Joshua is a prophet who not only teaches the gospel of Jesus Christ, but also has the gospel embodied in him as reflected in his character and life style. Glory be to God for His anointed servant whom He has commissioned on a journey of salvation of mankind.
Testimonies abound in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations as, after watching some of the extensive footage of T.B. Joshua’s early ministry, Mr Onyeka Nnaji came out to give a most touching testimony of the miracle he had received. He came to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations with the problem of leg cancer. From the clips shown, one could see the initial stage of the rotten right leg of Mr Onyeka Nnaji which defied medical attention other than having it amputated. But to God be the glory when he came to the church in search for solace, after the prayer offered by Prophet T.B. Joshua, there was a miraculous turn around in his life as the cancer which refused to heal started to heal and today Mr Onyeka Nnaji came with a leg completely healed. Indeed the evidence of Jesus Christ is lives changed!
The prayer line witnessed a number of people who came from far and wide in search of solutions to their diverse problems and needs. The five wise men were there to meet their needs through Christ Jesus as God used them mightily in healing, deliverance and prophecy. Among the many who received a touch from God was Madam Helen Okafor who came with a problem of difficulty in walking due to osteoarthritis of both knees for 4years. She came with a pair of crutches, but to God be the glory she went back home without the crutches. It was one of the five wise men who prayed for her, and to the excitement of the congregation, Madam Helen Okafor stood up and began to walk unaided after her healing.
Mrs Dorothy Patrick, a 28 year old woman was not left out as she also came with the problem of inability to walk due to a fracture of the tibia and fibula which condemned her to using crutches. Her x-ray showed the broken bone of the leg but God, the Almighty Healer met her at the point of her need through one of the five wise men who prayed for her and she went home without the crutches, happy and fulfilled that her problem of many years has now become a thing of the past.
There is no limit to God’s promises in the life of His servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua as he relentlessly continues to offer his services to mankind in order to win their souls for the kingdom of God. For God has given every Christian a ministry of reconciliation. Reconciliation here means soul winning regardless of colour, race, nationality or sex (2 Peter 5v18-19).
