The President of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, wrote an official letter to Prophet TB Joshua, the Cleric of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Nigeria (SCOAN), appreciating his role in restoring peace to the country and inviting him yet again to South Sudan. Upon receiving this message, when asked by journalists why he was internationally respected more than in Nigeria, Prophet TB Joshua replied:
“If I am more valued in my home country, then I am not following the footsteps of my Master Jesus. The same people he came to redeem hated him. I am glad that I face the same persecution as Jesus.”
Amid President Salva Kiir Mayardit, the Cabinet, and thousands of South Sudanese, Prophet TB Joshua addressed the nation at Juba’s presidential palace with an uplifting message from God.
TB Joshua in South Sudan
The gratification message from the President of South Sudan came after TB Joshua had gone to South Sudan on invitation by Salva Kiir. The South Sudan President had invited TB Joshua to South Sudan seven times, but all in vain. He kept declining these invitations, saying that God has not yet told him to travel there.
On the last invitation in November 2019, TB Joshua says that God told him to accept and go to South Sudan to give the country His message. TB Joshua visited South Sudan with God’s prophetic word and a prayerful plea for reconciliation and peace on Tuesday, 12 November 2019.
TB Joshua said, “As a prophet, I need to be specific. I should not say what God has not spoken. Yes, this is the voice of God. The time has come. I have been invited to this country seven times–but each time I received an invitation, I would ask God, and the Lord would say, ‘No.’ But this time, the Lord said, ‘Yes!’.”
TB Joshua prophesied that South Sudan would see a New Beginning of Peace, whether or not anyone liked it. He was not afraid to put his head in hot soup, saying if he is indeed a prophet, his message from God will surely come to pass in his generation. He gave an estimation of between December 2019 and the first four months of 2020.
TB Joshua reaffirmed, “If I am a prophet, this will not go without fulfillment. Take your pen and write. I am here to prophesy to the nation. I am not coming here to preach or to teach. If I am a prophet, this will not go without fulfillment. The time has come. The issue of this nation is spiritual. We need to tackle it spiritually.”
TB Joshua’s Assurance
Prophet TB Joshua assured those who were listening to him that the time had come for South Sudan leaders to put their differences aside. He said peace has no price and that no one can stand in the way of the Lord because He owns a man’s heart and can instruct man at any time. TB Joshua told his listeners in South Sudan to look beyond his appearance because it was the man talking beyond it. He assured them he had delivered the message and prayer God sent him to deliver. Lastly, TB Joshua told them that God wanted to move the nation forward. He said that their agreement did not matter to what God was about to do.
After the meeting, as he was in his hotel waiting to dine with President Salva Kiir, Prophet TB Joshua said God told him to leave South Sudan immediately and not wait to be lavished with gratitude or a sumptuous dinner. He left for Nigeria immediately.
The Recent Letter: Another Invitation to Prophet TB Joshua
Recently, Salva Kiir sent a message to TB Joshua after his visit and prophecy had come to fulfillment, and it reads;
Dear Man of God,
REF: Invitation Letter
I am privileged to write to your highly esteemed prophetic office about the subject mentioned above with due respect and honor.
First, I would like to thank you, humble servant, of the Highest God, for the higher grace and anointing upon your life, and your love and humility by coming on your prophetic and historic visit on 12 November 2019 when the nation was in a desperate situation after experiencing civil war violence for many years. The world organizations tried to negotiate peace, but where human wisdom failed, God has the ultimate answer.
You prophesied that it shall be a new beginning for the nation, and we, the leaders, should overcome our divisions and differences to develop the world’s youngest country.
Hence, the government and opposition have come together to implement the revitalized peace agreement. Now the nation is at peace, followed by the formation of the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU), which signifies a new beginning indeed!
“For I am the Lord, I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will not be postponed…” (Ezekiel 12:25)
Secondly, based on the reference mentioned above, I want to take this opportunity to invite you again to the Republic of South Sudan to harvest what you planted. The entire nation of South Sudan is ready to receive you again.
“Being confident of this proverb, He who began the good work will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)
Please accept, dear Man of God, the assurance of my best regards.
Signed Salva Kiir Mayardit,
President of the Republic of South Sudan
