The Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Joshua has admonished Nigerians not to be dispaired but should see the loss of both businesses and loved ones to Covid-19 as a greater things to come.
He said this in a prophetic message released in Lagos on Monday to the world, noting that they should rather see every disappointment as a blessing but not an end in itself.
Predicting that the period of pains and anguish occasioned by the pandemic would not last, added that “By the end of June to the first week of July, the hardship would be a reference point noting that “it is unchangeable; it must happen.”
Prophet Joshua explained that, “If you don’t get your job back or you don’t get a proper job or a full-time job or you run into loss or lose a loved one after this lockdown, don’t despair; don’t doubt your God. He is about to establish you. Ask any successful man or woman and they will tell you the level of disappointment and setback they had to endure to come to a new level in life.
“For many, it was a sack letter, an accusation, a petition against them and they lost their job – but today they are established. I want to believe the similar signs I am seeing now will happen to many while others may lose loved ones or run into loss.
“I can see beyond many of our situations at hand. That is why I am telling you that behind that situation lies your future. After the lockdown, whatever disappointment you will receive or whatever happens; think deeply and you will see the reason why this is happening to you.
“Remember, many successful people today once had the same experience and they were moved to a higher level in life thereby.
Prophet Joshua further cautioned Nigerians not to live above their income but be prepared to adjust to the present situation in post Covid-19 era.
“Ask your family members to cut their coat according to their size. If any of them was living in a lavish lifestyle before, they have to prepare to adjust now to the situation that is coming. Check your store and bring out the things you may need to sell. Right now, you need to be living modestly,” he reaffirmed.
He also appealed to married couples to shun divorce saying that “divorce should not be the order of the day. We just need to adjust. You may likely need some new friends because not all of your friends would be able to cope and adjust. The future is still there but only calls for adjustment.
“Every age has its own challenges. People of yesterday had their own challenges in a different way. Today, those who adjust will be able to overcome and those who are unable to adjust will go by the level of their challenges – down, fall, death.”
He observed that certain things happen to humanity in every 100 years, and fortunately, this is happening in our life time. Those who respond to the demands of the age will end up as overcomers, victors, winners.
However, those who fail to respond to the demands appropriately will eventually go down with the times, either by disappointment, failure, death,” Prophet T.B Joshua reiterated.
