Prophet credits God with SCOAN's success

Find out what Prophet TB Joshua has to say about the success of his growing church.

Prophet T.B Joshua holds a lot of influence

According to DailyPost, the founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has attributed his success to no other person, but God.

Speaking with TheNEWS, the prophet debunked rumors that the increase in members was with the use of demonic powers.

“Right now I am talking to you, there are over 400 foreigners from 10 different countries here. Are these people being deceived, destroyed or killed (as my detractors alleged)?

If I have been using occultic power, the congregation here will not increase. If my mission here is not of God, it won’t stand just as Gamaliel said. When people have their problems solved or they have salvation, they tell others.

The early Christian preachers were being disturbed by the Pharisees, Sadducees and the High Priests in the Synagogue and the Temple in Jerusalem.

But among the elderly religious Jews was a man called Gamaliel, a doctor of the law. He quoted the example of Theudas who boasted to be somebody and who attracted over 400 men. He was slain and his followers scattered.

Gamaliele cited example of Judas of Galilee (not Iscariot) who rose in the days of the taxing. He attracted many people, but he perished while his adherents were dispersed. Those were in the days when Israel was under Roman colonialism.

Gamaliel, therefore warned the Jewish, elders. ‘Refrain from these men (Christian preachers) and let them alone. For if this counsel or this work is of men, it will come to nought. But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it, yet, haply ye be found to be even to fight against God’ (Acts 5:38-39, King James Version).

So, if I am not of God, I will not survive this trial. But if I am of God, this trial will not destroy me. Trial is the soil in which faith flourishes. God sees his own people through trial", he added.

T.B Joshua's church has been shrouded in rumors from inception.

Due to his unbelievable deliverance sessions, and prophecies, the SCOAN founder has often been accused of using demonic powers.
