Prophet T.B. Joshua is yesterday celebrated his 57th birthday. The founder and general overseer of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) decided to celebrate his birthday in unconventional way.
“Birthdays are a time to reflect on the memories of yesterday, the joys of today and the dreams of tomorrow,” the cleric began, before thanking ‘Emmanuel TV viewers’ for their love and prayers.
“Many waters cannot quench love,” he continued, poetically describing that love “has feet to move to the needy, hands to help others without expectation, eyes to see misery and want and ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.”
Joshua, who is known for his extensive humanitarian activities, called on people to use the occasion of his birthday to reach out to the less privileged.
“The only way to have a friend is to be one. Many T.B. Joshuas are orphans. Let us father them. Many T.B. Joshuas are homeless. Let us shelter them. Many T.B. Joshuas are sick. Let us care for them. Many TB Joshuas are lonely. Let us be their companion,” he implored.
“My friends, let the feelings of others matter to us. There are many sick ones, hungry people, widows and orphans in our communities. Let us care for them,” he further admonished, quoting the Scripture in Matthew 25:40.
Joshua concluded with the prayer: “Lord Jesus, as we celebrate according to Your instruction, give us the vision we should have for our lives. Give us the faith and the courage to dream big, in Jesus Christ’s name.”
