Famous Indonesian philosopher Prof Dr HM Quraish Shihab Speaks On TB Joshua
The bible in 1 Corinthians 1: 27 talks about how God uses the foolish things of this world to shame the wise, Jesus authoritatively taught that if men refuse to praise Him, God would in His power raise stones to praise Him, this parable could be taken on a literal level to mean â€œphysical stonesâ€ but on a deeper level refers most likely to praises of Godâ€™s supremacy from the most unlikely sources. In perfect harmony with Jesus Words surprising Â acknowledgement of TB Joshua’sÂ genuiness have come from the lips of World renowned Muslim, Prof Dr HM Quraish Shihab, an Indonesian famous philosopher. This acknowledgement comes at a time when TB Joshua remains most controversial amongst some acclaimed Christians and some professed pastors, he taught in a lecture whilst Quoting from the Holy Scriptures and Qur’an, in testifying of Jesus and TB Joshua as God Holy servants, he said thus;
â€œIf an apostle always gives a lesson, which is contrary to your prideÂ any timeÂ he comes, therefore, will you accuse some of them and kill the others?â€Â QS 2:87.
This is human being, when a prophet comes with miracles, they will still reject him. Would you still have no faith in the teachings of Prophet Jesus?
Rasulullah explains the miracles of Prophet Jesus as:
QS 3:49Â \Â ”Surely, I have come to you bringing a sign of wonder from God,
- I made you from the earth in the form of a bird, then I breathed, then it became a bird as God would;
- And I healed those born blind and a person with skin disease and I raised the dead with Godâ€™s permission;
- And I gave you what you eat and store in your houses.Â Verily, this is an apostolic sign of truth for you, if you truly believe”.
Miracles of Jesus in the BIBLE:
The Healing of the Demon Possessed BoyÂ (Matthew 17:14-20)
17Â â€œYou unbelieving and perverse generation,â€Â Jesus replied,Â â€œhow long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me.â€Â 18Â Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed at that moment.
Jesus Heals the SickÂ (Matthew 14:34-36)
34Â When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret.Â 35Â And when the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to himÂ 36Â and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak,Â and all who touched it were healed.
God still sends a man of God, like T.B. Joshua with his miracles as those that Prophet Jesus performed. He heals various sicknesses just by touching the sick or by using the medium of the Anointing Water.
After reading the Words of God above and seeing Emmanuel TV and the Man of God T.B. Joshua, what is your reaction?
Will you reject it as you rejected any prophet who came with miracles from Allah?
If an apostle always gives a lesson which is contrary to your pride anytime he comes, therefore, will you accuse some of them and kill the others? QS 2:87
He, who has faith and follows the teachings of Prophet Jesus (Prophet Isa), then God will put in his heart love, respect and a peaceful life.
Rasulullah SAW explains:
Therefore, our apostles follow behind them and Isa, the son of Mary and we gave to Him the Gospel and we put in His heart respect and love. QS.57: 27.
Those who reject Godâ€™s commandment above are those who follow some part and ignore the rest â€“ QS 2:85 â€“ their lives will be disgraced on earth and in the hell.
May God open our heart. Amen. Pray that God open our heart. Amen.
