All the way longThere is an unseen hand in the affairs of every man of faith. God is the unseen hand that brings everything to pass.
As a Christian, whatever situation you are in, do a proper reflection. I mean sit down and reflect on life itself and you will discover that nothing happens for nothing, nothing comes by chance.
The Synagogue, Church of All Nations did not just come by chance – it was as it should be by divine will. Right from the start, God Almighty has been the divine driver behind our fortunes and the inspiration behind the whole set up.
We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge how He has intervened in our affairs all the way long. If God had not overcome for us, there would be no need to tell this story…
Everything Big Start Little...God has set a time for everything: a time to be born, a time to grow, a time to face persecution, a time to overcome and a time to show the proceeds of victory.
If you look at life, you would see that everything big starts little. A mighty cathedral starts with one brick. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. You were once a tiny embryo in your mother’s womb, but today, see how big you have become.
Luke 13:18 – Then Jesus asked, “What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches.”
A Christian home does not come by luck. It is not a thing of chance or accident. You don’t just find yourself in it; it is something you have through conscious effort or genuine willingness. So also, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations that you see today did not just happen, it was built.
Many years ago, a small gathering of eight members came together to hold their first meeting in a humble shelter in a squalid, swampy jungle, in the location of Agodo-Egbe in Lagos, Nigeria. For everything God created, He allotted a specific and definite purpose. The purpose and mission of the church was simple and clear – to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10).
As time went on, it became increasingly clear that T.B. Joshua was not just an ordinary pastor, preaching ‘ordinary’ words and doing ‘ordinary things’. Right from the onset, he has believed that serving God is not doing what many do but doing what the best do.
The Church today...
Although the physical structure of the church has changed, the vision remains the same. Millions continue to receive the knowledge of saving grace, and to see the undeniable evidence that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
God continues to use Prophet T.B. Joshua as an instrument of healing, prophecy, deliverance, blessing and salvation. Healings of HIV-AIDS, cancer, paralysis, and of many other sicknesses and diseases occur every week, proving that Jesus is who He says He is, He has what He says He has, and He can do what He says He can.Every Sunday, our live services are broadcast to millions around the globe through Emmanuel TV, and the cathedral is always filled to capacity with worshippers from across Nigeria and the world.
‘Church Of All Nations’: what to some was mere wishful thinking is becoming a visible reality today. The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations is now spreading throughout the globe. That name was not just given for nothing. God had a plan and purpose. The unseen hand is at work, and we know that this higher hand is leading us to something higher.
“If God gives you a vision and it is opposed by men, do not reduce it; stay in faith in Christ Jesus.”
Where God guides, He provides. Where he provides, He protects. A million thanks are not enough for all He has done!
The Race Continues“The race is not for the beginner but for the finisher.”
The journey continues. It is not about the messenger but the unchanging message. It’s not about the miracles but the Miracle worker. It’s not about the man, but the Maker. It’s all about Jesus Christ. The eternal message of our Lord Jesus Christ will last forever, even in the face of life’s uncertainties. This is what we are born for, what we are living for and what we are going to die for.
Wherever the road may lead us, the vision that gave birth to this ministry many years ago is the same vision that wakes us up in the morning, sends us to sleep at night and is preparing us for the journey tomorrow. And what is that vision? One way; one job. The way is Jesus Christ; the job is to talk about Him to others.
Life is a warfare. In a war, there are many battles to be won. Each time God sees you through a battle, it is right for you to say, “Thank You, Lord” and glorify Him. It is a way of encouraging Him to see you through future battles, because there are many battles ahead.
Deuteronomy 1:30-31 – “The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the desert. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.”
He has carried us all the way long. This story is not intended to show off, but as a way of glorifying God and saying, “Thank You, Jesus”.
The best is yet to come…
