A video has surfaced of the leader and founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua holding his first crusade in front of a handful of people in Ikare, Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria twenty-seven years ago, Concise News reports.
According to Emmanuel TV, “there, TB Joshua made a prophetic declaration that has come to glorious fulfillment.”
Today, Prophet T. B Joshua’s ministry, SCOAN is one of the most popular places of worship in Nigeria.
According to an information provided on SCOAN’s official website, in 1987, T.B. Joshua visited a ‘prayer mountain’ to seek the face of God.
There, he fasted and prayed for 40 days and 40 nights.
He wrote that in a heavenly vision, he had received divine anointing and a covenant from God to start his ministry. In his own words, he said concerning the life-changing experience: “… I saw a hand that pointed a Bible to my heart. The Bible entered my heart and my former heart seemed to immerse with the Bible immediately… I heard a voice saying, ‘I am your God. I am giving you a divine commission to go and carry out the work of the Heavenly Father… I would show you the wonderful ways I would reveal myself through you in teaching, preaching, miracles, signs and wonders for the salvation of souls…’ ”
Since 1992 when Joshua held his first-ever crusade, his ministry has grown far beyond the shores of Nigeria.
More than 15,000 members attend the weekly Sunday service, and visitors from outside Nigeria are accommodated in the SCOAN’s facilities in Lagos.
