"They Will Believe
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this article.
I am doing a Bible study right now on what I would call "renewing our minds". It is based on this verse:
Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.
The only way to renew our minds is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, confess our sins, and be saved, then to study the written Word and allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to teach us. Our minds are corrupted by virtue of the sin nature and what we have learned in life because our filters are off. I gave an illustration of straining coconut to make coconut milk. If you use a 1 inch screen everything will pass through. Even if you use a quarter inch screen you will get mostly coconut meat in your milk. You have to use a fine screen in order to separate the milk from the leftover. Our filters are off and the first thing God begins to do is correct our worldview, because if your worldview is off you will not understand God's reality. We need to learn to see things from His perspective. This is why I started this study by going back to an original problem.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
This has always been an interesting passage to me for a few different reasons. What is "the lie" that is talked about here in verse 9 and 11? What are the ways that "wickedness deceives those who are perishing" and how long has this been going on or does this only begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one? In what way does "the lie" cause those who do not believe the truth to "delight in wickedness"?

Reports are coming out that the building at SCOAN Lagos reserved for foreign visitors, collapsed this afternoon. Many are said to be dead (source), and people are reportedly trapped.
|TB Joshua blames building collapse on UFO attack|
|by TB Joshua Watch, 9/17/14
As unbelievable as it may sound, you read that correctly - he has claimed that a mysterious plane or helicopter flying close to the church compound caused the building to collapse. Even if we entertain this ridiculous hypothesis for one moment, it still doesn't let SCOAN off the hook one iota. Is he saying that the buildings on his multimillion dollar church compound are so shoddily built that the noise of a nearby aircraft could cause it to fall? Or is he saying that the UFO had some alien, invisible ray gun technology that remotely disintegrated the foundations of the building? Far be it for us to make fun of this dreadful situation, but how else are we meant to understand his explanation?

|Many Warned About TB Joshua|
|by Bill Randles, 9/21/14 |
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.(Matthew 24:11-13) In view of the recent collapse of the Synagogue of all Nations church, led by the (False) prophet TB Joshua, which led to the deaths of at least 70 South Africans, I thought I would reprint this 2001 letter I sent to a major newspaper in Johannesburg South Africa, printed in March 2001, after they printed a positive review of the dangerous false prophet.Unfortunately thousands of Nigerians and gullible westerners have been decieved by this dangerous man.

Nicholas Ibekwe, a journalist, shared some tweets of T.B Joshua offering journalists who were covering the building collapse N50,000 to 'fuel' their cars after he met with them behind close doors at his church premises. After giving them the money, he asked them what they planned to write and some of them said whatever he wants them to write. He asked them to talk about the people who were rescued/survived and not focus on the people who died.
