Everything Big Starts Little

A biographical piece written by Prophet T.B. Joshua:

Young TB Joshua“I found myself in a family background that irritated me. In those early years of my life, I knew I would be blamed for what I gave my attention to – so I took a different direction in order to achieve a different solution.

“Before this time, I was a member of the Anglican Church and participated actively in many church activities. On three different occasions, I was appointed the chairman of Children’s Harvest/ Thanksgiving ceremony. During my elementary education at St. Stephen Anglican Primary School, Agbalaku, Arigidi, I was leader of the student Christian fellowship.

“I taught my colleagues the Scriptures without formal Bible training. In my dreams, I was always taught the Scriptures; that gave me an edge over other student colleagues, even my teacher. I was the smallest in the class but led the prayer during the school devotions. My teacher, Mrs Margaret Tolani Adejumo, and my colleagues usually called me ‘small pastor’.

“I recognised early enough that victory obtained through Christ was a time past victory. I mean, it is victory assured. Rather than despair and blame my situation on family background, I began to be proud of my situation in order to feel Christ’s victory over me.

“I became content with my situation, knowing that my situation is redeemable through Christ and that the redemption was a time-past one. I mean, redemption assured. Then I began to take God at His Word in order to have His way. Nobody is too good or too bad to qualify for His grace.

“Remember, it was possible for me to sit somewhere and begin to make excuses for my situation. I never did.

“Whatever I am today is a product of that conviction that victory through Christ is victory indeed. The rest is history.

Young TB Joshua“Today, many people blame their situation on family background. Some would say, “I am poor because everyone in my family is poor.” If you make excuses for being poor, your poverty cannot be excused. Remember, you are responsible for what you give your attention to; so it is unnecessary to blame your situation on anyone.

“Today, it is common for people to blame their failure on their family background, whereas they attribute their success to their personal effort.

“If you attribute your success to your personal effort, you should also accept the blame for your failure. When we make excuses for our wrongdoing, such misdeeds would not be excused.

“God has a time for everything: A time to grow, a time to face realities of life, a time to overcome and a time to show the proceeds of victory. Ecclesiastes 3:1. I want to let you know that this record is not in anyway intended to show off – I mean, it is not a way of saying, “I have arrived”, but my own way of glorifying God for what He is doing in our lives. It is my own way of giving testimony to the goodness of God in my life. First, to show my total dependence on God and second, to encourage the weak that there is hope; Jesus is the hope.

“Life is a warfare, and in a war there are many battles to be won.

“Each time God leads us through a battle, it is in our own interest to testify to His goodness, as a way of thanksgiving for not allowing our adversaries to triumph over us. If God had not overcome for us, there would be no need to show this record, just as there would be no need for this story.”

  4. Thank you Prophet TB Joshua for being adhering to the will of God.

    I want to share my dream, my daughter died then I came running I just lay hand on her and pray for her and she came back to life. In real life there was one
    girl who was hospitalized she was HIV positive and she has TB. She was isolated from others we went into her cubicle and prayed for her I was with
    my other church mates then I just laid my on hands on her feet. After praying she said she had an electric shock in her feet when I was touching her,
    after few weeks she was tested TB free. There are so many testimonies after this one another one was supposed to be operated her breast I prayed for
    her and she was healed. I thank God that I shall meet the man of God to deliver me from spirit of anger.

    God bless you.

  6. I have learned to hold on to a dream/vision than God gives you. God me gave me a vision but i never followed it like you did Daddy, among the dreams that i had let me share 3 dreams with you.

    1. I had this dream 6 years ago, in this dream there was a horrible man who was announced on CNN as the most wanted person in the world, this urgly person with dirty teeth and scrafy hair was killing each and every person he met using a sickle, however no one could arrest him because he used to disappear. Within a minuet, that person was in my yard heading to my children, i grabed my boys and locked myself up in the bathroom where he managed to enter. God then told me to pray and i prayed until he fell on the floor, after delivering him i told him to confes that Jesus is Lord of which he did and i helped him up. I walked out of the house with him hand in hand, apparently outside my gate there were reporters from all over the world wanting to see how the killer would come out with our heads in his hands, but when they saw me walking hand in hand with him holding his sickle …..they were shocked. I then found myself being interviewed on TV by CNN and they wrote, the hero of the world, as i left the studio there was an very long que of people (mainly women) who wanted me to pray for them. I then prayed for the people then i woke up.

    2. I dreamt that a plan belonging to DHL crushed and i was with you, as people where rescueing the survivorsyou lead me to a place where there was a hole in the air. You told me to look through the hole and then i saw Our Lord Jesus Christ with Abraham, Jacob and other great Prophets of God walking towards me in the fog. I was so happy and i woke up.
    3. I was in heaven, then i met Joseph and i asked him where Our Lord Jesus Christ was and he showed me. He was standing on the other side of the land because the ground was plit into two. I don’t know how but i managed to find myself in front of Jesus, he then asked to that “what can i do for you”? i then said i want you to heal and bless me, smilingly he said “you are healed and you are already blessed”. I then removed the anointing from my pocket and i showed m
    him that this is what i use Anointing WATER from T.B JOSHUA, Jesus smiled again and said it is me who anoints this water and i do it every January then i woke up.
    I have not followed the will of God in my life 100%, however i have the urge to do his will and i pray i am not late to be his servant. I admire you, you are my Mentor, please tell me what God is saying about my life. I am making arrangements to come to SCOAN next month God willing, this will be my 3rd time of visiting the SCOAN and i know that i will come because i have seen myself more that 5 times worshipping in the SCOAN.

    God Bless you
