An Easter Prayer

Blessed are you, Lord God of our salvation,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As once you ransomed your people from Egypt
and led them to freedom in the promised land,
so now you have delivered us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your risen Son.
May we, the first fruits of your new creation,
rejoice in this new day you have made,
and praise you for your mighty acts.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    • Thanks for Easter prayer: reminds me of the man in John 5:5-7, when Jesus brought the man
      out of Egypy by making him whole- which applies to all of humanity who believes.

  1. Allow me to share this beautiful hymn

    Lyrics in Latin:

    Sanctus

    Benedictus, benedictus
    qui venit in nomine benedictus
    In nomine Domine

    Benedictus, Benedictus
    qui venit in nomine benedictus
    In nomine Domine

    Sanctus

    Benedictus in nomine
    qui venit in nomine,
    benedictus in nomine,
    qui venit in nomine,
    benedictus venit in nomine

    Benedictus, Benedictus
    qui venit in nomine benedictus
    In nomine Domine

    Sanctus Dominus Deus Sabbaoth
    Pleni sunt coeli et terra Gloria
    Sanctus Dominus Deus Sabbaoth
    Pleni sunt coeli gloria.

    Sanctus

    I’m not a Latin expert, I used google translate 🙂

    English translation:

    Holy

    Blessed, blessed
    Blessed is he who comes in the name,
    In the name of the Lord

    Blessed Blessed
    Blessed is he who comes in the name,
    In the name of the Lord

    Holy

    Blessed be the name of the,
    He who comes in the name,
    Blessed be the name,
    He who comes in the name,
    Blessed be the name

    Blessed Blessed
    Blessed is he who comes in the name
    In the name of the Lord

    Holy is the Lord God of Hosts
    Heaven and earth are full
    Holy is the Lord God of Hosts
    Heavens are full of glory.

    Holy

  2. Amen, let us keep on praying for the devotees of the scoan cult to:

    “… now be delivered from the dominion of darkness of satan and be brought into the kingdom of light of your risen Son, Jesus Christ”…

  3. please i would love you to consider the above video for further action. Word needs to be spread. its the experience of a woman at scoan who has come out of it. THANKS.

    • @NowSane,
      There are some things I find highly unsettling about Deeper Life that make me wary of this clip

      Deeper Life is one church that has remained ‘scandal-less’ in Nigeria which is no mean feat for a Pentecostal church over there. This is commendable.

      But Deeper Life exhibits some cultism by finding fault with just about EVERY other church or ministry. It’s almost as of you are either Deeper Life or hell fodder. There is a strong sense of ‘i thank the am not a sinner as other men or even this publican’ around them. This would make one cautious of their claims.

      Deeper Life has a tendency of deriving or strengthening their own beliefs by visions and dreams. All these dreams of jeans,make up,weaves and wigs and bling tend to support their stance against them. Doctrines should be backed by scriptures not visions. Visions applied thus are nothing more than spiritual blackmail.

      And of course Kumuyi needs constant assurance that his dead wife is not in hell. Again dreams come in handy. Very weird.

      These Deeper Life reservations apart, the claim that ‘blood of Jesus’ is somewhat better and effective than ‘name of Jesus’ worries me. But I may let it pass seeing she is not too old in Christ.

      Finally, this being an eyewitness testimony, it would need some corroboration IMHO.

      Thank you and stay blessed

    That is exactly what I am saying:
    “TB Joshua does not focus on Jesus and Him dying on the cross, shedding His blood for repetitive sinners to be washed whiter than snow after repentance and who rose from the dead the third day.
    He does not administer the Communion service or Water baptism after repentance, which points to Jesus’ death and shed blood. The blood of Jesus are hushed over.
    Plus,
    TB Joshua prays for any and everyone in the prayer line, without even having the faintest idea of what they believe or whether their relationships with Jesus are restored!” He does not give a damn about your soul, just as long as he and his ministry get the honor for his cooked up ‘prophecies’ etc.and of-cause – MONEY HONEY.

  5. I noticed on Emmanuel TV website that all the scoan branches are not mentioned there anymore and harry is also not mentioned there either?
    He has dropped all of them from his website?

  6. Look what GlobalWatchWeekly says about TB Joshua:

    Temitope Balogun Joshua (born June 12, 1963), commonly referred to as T. B. Joshua, is a Nigerian prophet and televangelist. He is the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a religious organisation that runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos, Nigeria.

    He has been awarded various accolades, notably receiving

    The Nigerians have followed the British example in the form and structure of the Order.

    • Ok here is the challenge for anyone that think this is real. How can you blow up a plane with a belt that has no explosives or do have explosives ?

      The plane was diverted and landed because of the fact that he had an issue with his wife in CYPRUS because he said the plane had to be diverted to there.

      The people were not rescued, they just walked down the steps of the plane one by one without anyone rescuing them and one person climbed out a of a window. They were met further down and walked away. No-one went inside the plane to rescue anyone. Because it was all a joke and the man was smiling by someone who had made a picture on his phone with i

    • Perhaps the “breaking news part was an edit, just because maybe it’s abrupt.

      I read “Balloon”? What balloon? A plane is not a balloon; TB Joshua knows what planes are.

      • @ObserverDude – he even owns a plane!

        Since the clip was undated, it must be an old prophecy. I expect he said this would happen within a particular time period, and edited that out. Even if that didn’t happen, it’s a pretty underwhelming prophecy – just something to throw out there and eventually it will find fulfillment.

  8. @tbjoshuawatch,
    This I can bet is his MO going forward; avoid dating his clips lest we dig up the original u edited ones posted by his sheeple

    • @Vooke
      I doubt if he will modify his MO that way. He has been doing this for a few years now, even as far back as 2013 he has been putting out both dated & undated clips, depending on how long it takes until “fulfillment”. I suspect he will continue to date some of them provided that their “fulfillment” is within few weeks or few months & also if they are vague enough to not fail dismally on the scale of accuracy.

      • @General,
        Thank you for enlightening me!

        The charlatan and video editor in chief UNDATES prehistoric ‘prophecies’ so as to apply them eons after unleashing them

        But I still think somebody somewhere must be ruing existence of unedited versions of his prophecies,and they will attempt to control this ‘menace’.

        They may start discouraging the sheeple from uploading their videos,UNDATE their prophecies to make it harder for skeptics to dig for the originals,avoid uploading the prophecies themselves and so forth…
