In a short address before he is shown entering several homes in a rustic setting accompanied by one of his daughters, Prophet Joshua said, “Viewers, we should see giving to others as an assignment from God, because that only comes to God that comes from Him.
“It pleases God in His mercy to bless you with long life,” Joshua told one of the super-centenarians who said he was over 150 years old, before giving the elderly man N100,000”.
Gifts ranging between N100,000 to N200,000 were given to all the aged people he visited, with Joshua kneeling to receive the heartfelt prayers they offered him in appreciation of his good gesture.
“You will conquer all evil. You will overcome. You will not lose the Kingdom of God,” one of the senior citizens prayed for Joshua, with tears streaming down his face as he was receiving the gift.
“What I am concerned about is the youths; please pray for them,” pleaded another super-centenarian who said he was 127 years old, adding that he prayed for Joshua three times daily and the world was in the ‘end-times’.
“Let us give for God’s sake and receive more of whatever we give. Help for God’s sake and be helped. Love for God’s sake and be loved. Care for God’s sake and be cared for,” Joshua counselled viewers amidst his humanitarian mission.
