In the aftermath of the tragic incident which occurred at the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Ikotun Lagos, the church’s founder T.B. Joshua has he is just passing through hard times but cannot be destroyed by it.

He wrote a small piece on SCOAN’s official Facebook page, saying “To withstand hard times, stand with Christ. When you face trials, hard times, you can ‘count it all joy’ if you add faith.”

 He continued:  “(James 1:2-3). It is through hard times that you gain the necessary experience and maturity to handle whatever responsibility given you. We are most likely to go astray from God and forget Him when things are easy with us in the world because we often become proud and stupid with wealth and pleasure. God visits His people with hard times that they may learn His way. His ways, though hard to the ungodly men, are desirable and profitable because they lead us to safety unto eternal life.”

Prophet Joshua who recently has been a lot criticized on social media emphasized that God sometimes uses hard times to draw us to himself so we can retrace our steps back to him.

Quoting the bible passage -2 Chronicles 12:5-8, he wrote: “God allowed the enemy to overcome Israel so that they may learn the difference between serving God and serving the devil. If not for our hard times, we would not have sought the face of God. I mean, if not because of hard times, man by his wicked nature would not have sought the face of God. This means, God sometimes uses hard times to draw us to himself so that we can take our proper position and possession in Him.”

According to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the death toll had risen to 70 and 131 rescued.
