As A Christian, If You Contract Covid-19, Don’t Misjudge Yourself: T.B Joshua

Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua says Christians can be infected by the coronavirus adding that ”it is just like another affliction”.

This was in response to questions from different people on his Facebook page.

A particular Facebook user had asked the cleric if a real Christian could contract COVID-19, since many have read on the internet that true Christians would contract it.

According to the individual, many were worried because there were many people they knew as Christians and pastors who had contracted the sickness and some have even died.

The Prophet while answering the question said `Capital YES!’

The pastor explained that Christians should not make the mistake of thinking that they could not be touched by the pandemic.

“God often uses ‘anything’ to preserve us and to strengthen our desire and determination.

“A Christian can be sick in the body and yet be a friend of God or a candidate for Heaven, so don’t let your situation mislead you and cause you to start doubting your God.

“This should be the reason for you to look deeper, pray the more and dream of other ways you might have ignored the leading of God’’.

“The rich should not concentrate on their pains or riches and the poor should not concentrate on their pains or poverty because a man may be afflicted or poor and yet be a candidate for Heaven,” he said.

“As a Christian, what you see as COVID-19 or affliction, God may sometimes allow it as a test of one’s faith.

“Often we run from the very things that will bring strength to our lives, such as trials and afflictions of various kinds, all of which are meant for our spiritual benefit.

“They are to test (our) maturity. A true Christian is tested by his ability to face situations and deal with difficulties.

“As a Christian, if you contract COVID-19, don’t begin to misjudge yourself by worrying, ‘Am I really a Christian? Why me?

“Don’t worry about whatever people say, if truly you are a Christian.

“God wants you to pray more because what we see as a disadvantage in our lives can be turned into an advantage. God is still saying something!,” he said.

    Sin is the author of all these strange sickness but God will deliver us all. Deut. 28vs 1 to 15 is what God expected from us and down to the end is what He (God) will do if we disobey. l pray He will see us all through in Jesus name.

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)

Published

on

The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.

He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.

The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.

CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
