#News: I’m Facing Hard Times – TB Joshua Opens Up


Founder of Synagogue Church, Prophet TB Joshua, says he has been facing hard times since the collapse of his church guesthouse in Lagos. He has, however, said that he would survive the trying 'times'.

A six-storey guesthouse belonging to the church collapsed last Friday, and as at the last count, about 80 persons have been confirmed dead with over 140rescued alive.

TB Joshua has assured all who believe in his good works that would not be destroyed by the incident:
“Hard times may test me, they cannot destroy me,” TB Joshua said, adding, “To withstand hard times, stand with Christ.When you face trials, hard times, you can count it all joy if you add faith.”
 Quoting the Bible, TB Joshua reached out to his thousands of followers across the world via the social network, just as he stated that God sometimes makes use of hard times to “draw us to Himself.”

According to TB Joshua, in a message on SCOAN official Facebook page, God visits His people with hard times because people often become “proud and stupid with wealth and pleasure.”

He added,

 “It is through hard times that you gain the necessary experience and maturity to handle whatever responsibility given you. We are most likely to go astray from God and forget Him when things are easy with us in the world because we often become proud and stupid with wealth and pleasure.
“God visits His people with hard times that they may learn His way. His ways, though hard to the ungodly men, are desirable and profitable because they lead us to safety unto eternal life.

 God allowed the enemy to overcome Israel so that they may learn the difference between serving God and serving the devil.

“If not for our hard times, we would not have sought the face of God. I mean, if not because of hard times, man by his wicked nature, would not have sought the face of God.

This means, God sometimes uses hard times to draw us to Him so that we can take our proper position and possession in Him.”
