It’s really shocking to know that the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations, SCOAN, whom according to Forbes, is among Nigeria’s richest pastors had this poor background.
He has been awarded various accolades, notably receiving the Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) by the Nigerian government in 2008 and being voted the Yoruba man of the decade by Pan-Yoruba media outlet Irohin-Odua.
He was recognised as one of Africa’s 50 most influential people by Pan-African magazines ‘The Africa Report’ and ‘New African Magazine’and listed among the world’s most famous people.
Read what he wrote alongside the pics below:
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR FAILURE – TB JOSHUA
“In my spiritual walk with God I have experienced both good and hard times. Who knows what would have happened if those temporary stops did not come at intervals? Consider how my education suffered epileptic fits; today I am in school, the next day I am out, especially for want of money. I don’t want to call it poverty because the man that is poor is not the one who has no money but one without a dream. Children of destiny can never be poor, though they may experience temporary lacks.
“Before I knew it, I had gone around six different colleges in less than one year. I enrolled for JAMB four times and on each occasion, it was either I forgot my acknowledgement card and other necessary documents or there was an accident on the way to examination venues. People who saw what was happening to me simply attributed my predicament to either sin or non-seriousness on my part. But those with the maturity that comes from faith, like my mother, saw it as mere stopping intervals/ natural stops in my spiritual walk with God.
“I began to look at whatever came my way with a mind whose focus was on God alone, I mean, the maturity that comes from faith in the finished works of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I knew my case was already settled in Heaven. Here I am today in your midst; I can boast of what God is doing for us. Hallelujah! You are all witnesses.
“To those who have no fast legs, no sugar coated mouth and who are without human help – there is no excuse for failure…
“Are you rejected? Come to Jesus – He is your Companion!
Are you abandoned? Come to Jesus – He is your Comforter!
Are you without help? Come to Jesus – He is your Helper!” – TB Joshua
