LAGOS: Against several speculations making rounds on the internet, the popular televangelist, Prophet TB Joshua has revealed reasons behind his visit to the mountain recently.
The Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) revealed that regularly, he goes to the mountain to rest instead of being in the atmosphere of technology.
He noted that he didn’t go the mountain for the sole aim of prayer, saying anywhere can be referred to as a prayer mountain, it only depends on the state of heart.
Prophet Joshua made this revealation in a tweet on his church’s twitter account, “Prophet TB Joshua has returned from the Prayer Mountain. When welcomed back, he explained: “Point of correction – any place can be a prayer mountain. It depends on the state of our heart.
“Our heart is the prayer mountain. Our heart is the prayer room. I went there just to have a rest. Many prefer to be in an atmosphere of technology, modern days – but I choose to be in an atmosphere of nature. I was just there to rest.”
While answering questions on how to get God’s word into the hearts of men, he stated that one must be carried along by the Holy Spirit.
His words, “First of all, we need to know what the Bible is, irrespective of the publisher.
“If you are to read the Bible, you must be carried along by the Holy Spirit, but nowadays, we read the Bible, we pray without any attention to the Holy Spirit, without any regard to the Holy Spirit.
“Before you read the Bible, you need to seek the attention of the Holy Spirit because the Bible is the tool in the hands of the Holy Spirit.’’
It would be recalled that some weeks ago, several online publications faulted the Prophet TB Joshua’s choice to make his visit to the mountain public; hence his explanation why he was at the mountain.
