Who are people behind TB Joshua Watch?

TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

\

Mr Edmund Nii Ayiku Amartey, a regular contributor on one of the \anti- SCOAN blogs – TB Joshua watch, who goes by alias Mr Terrific has \shifted now to Ghana web where he publishes articles under the pseudonym\ “NII AYIKU” as a revenge for  his failure at the SCOAN. Failure? Yes, \Mr Amartey Ayiku’s dubious character was exposed during 1996 and 1997, \when TB Joshua had his first international crusade held at the Kaneshie \Sports Complex in Accra. He had used his position at that occasion to \extort money from unsuspecting worshippers who did not know that TB \Joshua does not charge for the services he renders through the anointing\ God has bestowed upon him. Most of the people he had duped are still in\ the Ghana branch of The SCOAN and are ready to confront him should he \try to deny those allegations thinking that the truth had been buried \within the sands of time.

\

Ayiku Amartey was a Businessman who shuttled between Ghana and Lagos \on a regular basis to  buy bleaching cream and hair products which

\\

he sold in Accra Ghana. He tried as much as he could to become a \disciple of TB Joshua but his sneaky attitude would not endear him to \the heart of the prophet.

\

Recent publications on the internet by Nii Ayiku brought back \memories of who this faceless writer is and why his words are so acidic \towards TB Joshua and his ministry. Below is one of such strong worded \statement.

\

“Enough is enough ! T B Joshua has\ more blood of Ghanaians on his hands and it is time to deal with this \Nigerian criminal and his gang of rogues in Ghana, who claim to be \pastors and prophets. It is time to disband the Synagogue church of \Satan in Ghana”

\

It is unfortunate that insignificant people like Nii Ayiku Amartey  \with a track record of failures in every aspect of life would try to \apply every possible cheap method to make themselves look relevant. One \should have expected that such a person who had once come close to the \corridors of salvation and breakthrough should humble himself and \persevere in knocking at the door of salvation until he finally arrives \at a point where God will look at his determination and hearken to his \plea for mercy and save him. But because Ayiku Amartey  falls into the \category of those who come to Christ for the loaves and the fishes, he \is impatient to wait for God’s time. These are the kinds of people that \one would liken to the dog that death prevents from perceiving the aroma\ of the excreta till it is doomed.

\

Prophet T.B. Joshua is used to preaching that we need to use our goodness to change the bad we see in others.

\
  • What has Ayiku Amartey done to change the bad he sees of TB Joshua?
  • What effort has he or members of TB Joshua Watch done to deliver TB \Joshua from the alleged involvement in the occult as they claim?
  • Would Jesus allow occultist to be calling his name for the past 20 \years and consistenty performing works of miracle without exposing his \hypocritical ambition? What was Jesus’ response when He was accused of \being part Beelzebub? The same response is pertinent today to the likes \of Ayiku Amartey.
  • TB Joshua critics, can’t you see clearly that the more you persecute\ TB Joshua the more his ministry is getting bigger and successful in \terms of God’s anointing as is evident with people that come to The \Synagogue, Church of All Nations from all over the world?
  • Was it not the recent antagonism aimed at undermining TB Joshua and \the New Anointing Water and Stickers he had just introduced, that paid \off by rather attracting tens of thousands of devotees to abandon their \churches to attend The SCOAN in Ghana last week?
  • Many of the people who write comments on articles posted on the \internet don’t even know TB Joshua yet they persecute him. To such \ignorant persons, we can only pray that the Lord should forgive them for\ they know not what they are doing. It is our fervent prayer also that \the Lord in his infinite mercy should open the eye of their hearts to \have a glimpse of the Truth which, according to the Scriptures, will set\ them free from the bondage of satan.
  • If TB Joshua could NOT be killed, when he was just born and the evil\ one sent a rock to fly from afar off to fall right on the place he was \lying at his naming ceremony, then no amount of denouncement or campaign\ of calumny can bring him down.
\

\"\\"\"

\

Ayiku Amartey should be the least qualified to advise that TB Joshua \should go and attend to Nigerians. The ratio of Nigerians who come to \The SCOAN to seek for solution to their problems is far greater than any\ single church in Nigeria has ever recorded. The records are there for \anyone who cares to investigate and prove the facts.

\

Ayiku Amartey is the one that ought to be abvised to go and sort out \his marital problem? One would have expected that you take time off to \go back to your wife and the children you abandoned many years ago and \have refused to provide for the innocent children God blessed you with. \It is on government social welfare records that you have continued to \refuse to give them the prescribed welfare fund as required by Law even \if you decided to divorce the woman. The children are legitimately \entitled to upkeep money from you. Doesn’t this negligence portray you \as a wayward man that should not rear up your ugly neck in public.

\

Since you have come of age \to the extent of challenging a man of God like TB Joshua, your first \cause should have been to go and ask your mum who your real father is in\ order to put an end to the long-drawn battle between the three men that\ have been laying claim to having fathered you. Haven’t you had enough \scandal in your life so far?

\

Do not quickly forget that you directly and indirectly have benefited\ from the magnanimity of TB Joshua when your migration to the USA had to\ be sponsored by Mr Apomsah whom TB Joshua had healed.

\

Suddenly, you have become a self made Pastor.\ As you watch this clip, Readers should also see the video below and \judge who needs psychological evaluation – Ayiku Amartey or TB Joshua.

\\

What do you do with the thousands of dollars you collect from people \deceitfully? Your son needs money to pay his university tuition.

\

TB Joshua has a track record of reconciling broken families and \surely your family needs to reconcile. I bet the owners of TB Joshua \Watch site where you have been writing against TB Joshua don’t even know\ you have a broken home.

\

This is one of the lies you have shamelessly posted on a public \social media that requires that every information put in a subscriber’s \profile should be accurate but you have already violated the right to \remain on that site by supplying the following misleading information:

\

Relationship Status

\

Single - He is Married, he lied

\

About Me

\

I’m the leader and founder of Gospel Faith Revival, a teacher, \counsellor, encourager, anointed to preach the gospel and to bring \deliverance to the captives. – If the anointing upon him can deliver, why doesn’t he deliver TB Joshua? Or worse still why does he not reconcile with his wife and children which happens to be one of the ministries of The SCOAN?

\

Ministries I am Involved With

\

Evangelism, crusades, soul winning, networking, workshops, seminars, conferences. – Tell\ the world, Amartey how many lives have you changed?It is not late for \you to make a turn around and beg for forgiveness and receive the \prophet’s blessing.

He is just the greatest living and verifiable prophet on earth now. Another unique aspect of God’s Renowned global evangelist P.S. Upthegrove’s message has to do with his God given revelation that Prophet T.B.Joshua is one of the twelve end-time prophets in the world. This is a rare confirmation. Apostles, the world over, are several millions, but God knows exactly the gifts He gives to each individual, if they actually are called! The end-time prophets are bound to face opposition, sometimes vicious, dangerous, poison-edged and evil-laced challenges and criticisms, the kind which T.B. Joshua has been exposed to over the years. The critics, forget that the Creator needs no approval from the humans to call His servants. Many of Prophet T.B.Joshua’s vicious critics have never stopped asking for T.B. Joshua’s help with mentorship, church membership and pastoral training and confirmation. To them, the mentorship of God is insufficient. It is as if they demand that God should come physically to anoint Joshua, even when the fruits from his ministry demonstrate HE is clearly the centre of his ministerial commitments. Critics question the use of the Anointing Water and stickers; they query the stretching of hands and even the use of the word ‘Emmanuel’. They are not satisfied that the true work of God is being done in the midst of people from all corners of the globe – America, Asia, Europe and Africa. God’s General, C.S. Upthegrove, who had successfully pastored AA Allen’s church as a minister, was also encouraged by the ministration of the wise men in the church. He recounted how seeing such power demonstrated reminded him of all he had witnessed through ministers of God such as Oral Roberts, AA Allen, William Branham and RW Shambach who he had the privilege to work with and know personally. God had told the church – through Renowned global evangelist P.S. Upthegrove – that T.B. Joshua is one of His prophets, one through whom God would use to give people from all over the world their deliverance, blessings, healings and salvation. He said God uses anything to touch the lives of people – sticks, stones, shadows and even dead men’s bones. That T.B. Joshua has been using water to do likewise is within with God’s ability to be present in every matter of nature. The Anointing Water has been successfully used over the years to tear the kingdom of satan apart and als set people free from bondages and fasten people’s expectations on God. Renowned global evangelist P.S. Upthegrove told the congregation that AA Allen had actually described The SCOAN to him, so graphically, prophesying that God would sustain his life to conceived.see the fulfilment of his message and enabling him to meet the person concerned. He had always prayed to the Lord to give him grace to visit the prophesied church and it’s General Overseer. Allen’s vision had come in a period in which technologies such as the internet, through which many have discovered Joshua’s ministry, had not even been

Prophet T.B.Joshua & The Synagogue By Jerrell Miller - /Remnant Editor LAGOS, NIGERIA -- It was a first for both the Synagogue Church and me. I was the first reporter from the United States to sit in on a service and observe Prophet T.B. Joshua as he ministered to his church and to the people who had come to be healed. It would be an all day affair, yet it was so interesting it seemed as if it was over too soon. We were awakened at 5:45 AM to begin a full day at the church in Lagos. As our hosts took us to the main gate, you could see about 400 people waiting to come in. Who were these people? They were people with every type of illness imaginable. When they started walking in, the people in charge at the church organized them into groups. All of the cancer patients were directed to one area and the AIDS patients and the HIV positive were directed to another. (By the way - they do not allow a person to sit in a service with HIV or active AIDS unless they present a medical slip from a government hospital saying they have the virus. People are turned away without this documentation). The third group contains every other type illness or affliction (they must also show documented proof of what their illness is). The crippled and emphysema victims are among those found in this group. It was a little early in the morning for us to be up, but it was worth the loss of sleep to see the process that this church goes through. These church workers are a dedicated and compassionate group - to work so closely with all of these terribly ill people, moving from person to person, writing their diseases on a poster board for use during the service. (One man was in so much pain that he couldn’t sit down. He had cancer of the rectum and had to be laid out on a mat to give him comfort.) The church is careful to document every illness for later testimony. Each illness is recorded in a daily log to keep track of what goes through the church. All of this really made me wonder if some who have described this church as a cult really know what they are talking about. Is this church Biblical? The Synagogue Church thrives on Scripture! Everywhere you look throughout the massive crowd of people, you can see the Word of God in their hands. People have made the statement that records of healings and documentations of diagnosis are false - but every document I looked at was signed by a medical doctor who either worked at the University Hospital in Lagos or at a national government clinic. The people who came were not all from Nigeria either, as Botswana and many other African countries were represented among the HIV cases and other illnesses. At about 7:00AM, we went back to our rooms at the church to prepare ourselves for the 8:30AM service. The church has a smooth dirt floor with hundreds of high-backed, homemade pews throughout - each holding four or more people. Nigeria is on the equator, so I thought it would be extremely hot, but the whole time we were at the church it was overcast and pleasantly mild. The day I was there, the temperature was a mild 83 degrees outside - but inside, hundreds of roof fans kept the faithful cool. It was the middle of summer and the beginning of the rainy season, but it was comfortable. There was much activity in the house, as a general Sunday school was being conducted for the more than 3,000 people who came that day. African drums could be heard coming from the choir as the leader led them in a shrill chant. They played river songs, but the place really rocks with the rhythms of their native tradition. The mood is a festive one as people — some in suits, some in native dress — begin to sway back and forth as the Glory comes down. Women are fully covered in bright native cloths that reach to the floor, their heads adorned with brilliant headdresses of greens, reds, and golds. A short break is taken just before 12 noon and then the pastor arrives. I heard T.B. Joshua preaching and looked up at the closed circuit television to see him walking up and down with a hand held microphone, preaching on the far side of the church where the AIDS, cancer, and other patients were. He was teaching about persecution in the church and the power of forgiveness. I thought to myself, "Boy, does he know something about that subject." As I met him later and looked into his eyes, I found out the secret of his great strength. T.B. Joshua knows how to forgive the people who want to destroy him. In a teaching later that week he spoke about having teeth to strike back at the enemy and about how God comes to him and gives him great strength during times of persecution. Joshua continued preaching and the afternoon stretched toward 1:30 PM - but not a single person had left the church. Joshua was waiting for the waters to be troubled. His assistant then came to me and told me to walk into the area where the sick were seated to witness what was going to happen. Never in my life have I seen a man minister like Joshua. Walking up and down the large gallery of sick people (approximately 600), he began ministering to the cancer patients and then moved on to the other illnesses. He looks straight into a person’s eyes. It seems as if when he fixes his eyes on the person, something begins to happen. Joshua staggers around the person, sometimes grabbing the poster board sign and throwing it to the ground. He says, "You’re healed, go in Jesus’ name and sin no more." Believe me, he is a pastor who deals with sin in his church. He teaches that sickness and sin are in the same boat. Everything that Joshua deals with in the service deals with the presence of sin in a person’s life and the great need for God. The power is a light touch and you can sense a Supreme Presence around this man when he prays for people. I could sense the Presence of the Holy Spirit and I saw within that service a process of holiness being directed. I do not know many Pentecostal ministers who have an anointing to heal in the area of HIV and AIDS. Saving these cases until the very last, Joshua prayed for the HIV and AIDS people who are there for hope. He began to pray, but before they were touched, he asked them to renounce sin and to name their sins before the congregation. The very act of repentance starts the process as Joshua raises his hands and goes from side to side and then all of a sudden Joshua says, "You’re healed, go now and sin no more." When T.B. Joshua prays, you can see a power pull of the Holy Spirit as he moves people back and forth just with a wave of his hands. His methods are unusual, but the test results reveal the Power of God at work. There are signs and wonders in this church but a greater process is going on at the Synagogue Church - salvation is brought to the people that are healed. The condition of the soul is dealt with before the prayer goes forth over that individual. I believe that what Joshua is teaching and the format of his services will be a blueprint for the entire Christian Church to follow. He deals with sin and then he moves in healing. Many Charismatic and Full Gospel people, for years, have felt tremendous Presence in their situations around the world - but with no results. It’s great to sense and feel the Presence of God through worship in the great meetings around the world, but if all that happens is a feeling then we have missed the point of why Jesus came to the world. I listened to Joshua teach on the Holy Spirit and His purpose in the world. His teachings dealt with sin and the preparation for the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost. He used the Gospel of John to teach on the purpose for the Spirit Baptism. In my opinion, anyone who would make the statement that Joshua is a cult figure must have never actually come to his church. On Sunday night, Joshua operated in the prophetic as he called people forth who were bound in witchcraft and sin. This is Africa, and the people who come to these services are very often possessed by demons. I watched his congregation as he taught about sin and the power to destroy a person - tormenting spirits began to manifest in people. Those who were being dealt with for sin came forward and those who were demonically possessed were brought to the front of the church. (After a powerful display, the demon- possessed fall to the ground where their feet are crossed and they cannot move. One by one they are brought to the front of the church where Joshua prays over them.) Sometimes the demon talks back, but as Joshua casts the demon out; he leads that person to Christ. "Will you serve the Lord Jesus all the days of your life? The person in question agrees with Joshua and their feet become uncrossed. Joshua says to them, "Go now and sin no more." Make no mistake about it; the Power of God is moving in this congregation. This country is on the edge of great epidemics of disease, but the answers are not coming forth from the established local Pentecostal Churches or the hospitals. The local Pentecostal Association has chosen to attack and destroy Joshua’s ministry with rumors. I admit I read quite a lot about it before I actually came to the church and to be honest, a certain fear came into me about going there. The real story about Prophet T.B. Joshua, however, is that what is going on here is not happening in other places in Africa, or for that matter, the entire world. Two days after the service, I sat in a room with FORMER AIDS/HIV positive patients who proved that what was said about the false documentation of their healings is nothing but a rumor and a lie to destroy the witness of this great church. I personally examined each one of their documentation - case by case - and saw the before and after. One doctor and his wife, who came and were healed, were open to anyone who wanted to contact him at the hospital where he worked in Gaborone, Botswana. It was a hospital funded by the United States and the doctor’s name was Dr. Geoffrey Tirelo.

THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT ABOUT PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA AND THE SYNAGOGUE, CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS, LAGOS, NIGERIA HAS BEEN MADE BY PROMINENT DUTCH THEOLOGIAN PROFESSOR WILLEM J. OUWENEEL. Professor Ouweneel holds doctorates in biology (Utrecht), philosophy (Amsterdam) and theology (Bloemfontein, RSA). He is currently a theology and philosophy professor at several colleges and theological faculties. He is the author of over 100 books. He lives in the Netherlands, where he was born. 10 August 2002 I come from a Brethren background and not a charismatic background. So naturally I was a bit reluctant to go to Nigeria, but my daughter went there several times and she gave me the message that T.B. Joshua was interested in seeing me, although she had not told him anything about me. So I went there twice, once for five days in March 2002, and once for ten days in June 2002, and I hope to go there again in October 2002. I was very much impressed by what I saw, heard and experienced there. Not so much only in seeing the miracles that happened and the sermons that were given, but particularly the spiritual experience in my own soul when I was there. That is something that everyone who doesn't go there in person will miss. You will not experience personally what it is to be at such a sacred place where I felt the Lord's presence in a particular way and where He spoke to me on things that He had not spoken on to me previously in such a powerful way. Another thing that people will not experience if they don't go there is what kind of person T.B. Joshua is in himself. I had the opportunity of several indepth conversations with him. People who don't go there will also not notice the spiritual atmosphere of the meetings and the godly impact that he has on people who are there. I was there with a Dutch group and I spoke with the other guests who were there, all of whom were very touched. To me this was a tremendous experience. I may have my question marks on certain things that happened there because I don't understand them; I am a European and not an African. I have question marks on certain things in his sermons. But having questions is very different from having major criticisms that would condemn the man and his ministry altogether. Besides, some of those questions have been answered in the meantime to my full satisfaction. I have seen many of the criticisms on websites and in newspapers and am very angry with some of the criticisms as they are totally unfair and just repeating the mistakes (or even lies) others have made. They are people who are not in a position to really judge, people who pick on certain sentences in sermons which they do not understand in the African context and in the context of the rest of his ministry. That is a very cheap way of criticizing. It reminds me very strongly on what the Pharisees did who judged the Lord Jesus from their own framework of thought and put him in the category of the devil (Matthew 12). I think we should be very careful, on the one hand not to be misled by satan. That is absolutely true. But on the other hand, when we see God working, to attribute that to satan is just as bad. There are many who have not been there, who did not have the spiritual experience of the place and who only in a rational, critical, theological way pick on certain things that they have seen on videos or read in the sermons, things they don't see in their own proper context. That is very unfair to say the least and in some cases I really wonder whether the critics are not under demonic influences themselves, when I look at the harshness and unfairness with which they criticize. I am satisfied as to the integrity of T.B. Joshua's ministry. I have no doubt about that. I asked him some difficult questions just to find out for myself about his personal honesty, and I have been satisfied as to that. Also I believe him to be thoroughly sound on all the basic doctrines of Christianity. It is only when people consciously or unconsciously misread certain statements that misunderstandings and mean insinuations are born. But you can do that with anyone's ministry, take sermons apart and condemn the preacher. That has been done with T.B. Joshua. But on the whole he is absolutely sound when it comes to all the major points of Christian doctrine. His ministry is unusual but if God is pleased in these last days to raise a man in such an outward place in Africa in the way he has done to T.B. Joshua, that is His absolute sovereignty. We should be very careful in our western context to judge that simply because it is different from what we are used to or what fits into our own paradigms and our own frameworks of thought. Rather we should be prepared to have God overthrow our own frameworks of thoughts in the light of Scripture, instead of us judging things because they do not fit out preconceived ideas. I have gone over many of his written sermons and I have heard some of his sermons. English is not his native language, just as it is not mine, and some of the formulations certainly could give rise to misunderstandings. I realize that, but when you learn to understand the whole of his ministry more, you also begin to understand those formulations that at first were strange and you understand much better what he actually was saying. Lots of things that are attributed to him are based on this type of superficial reading. So on the whole I am absolutely convinced his written and spoken ministry is sound if you allow for certain weak formulations that indeed may give rise to misunderstanding if they are taken out of context or if your survey is only of a superficial nature. I pray that God will further bless brother T.B. Joshua, and will open the eyes of his critics. Willem J. Ouweneel

Joshua appears to have critics both in Nigeria and elsewhere? Yes, as a result of this the Religious Monitoring Group have investigated Joshua and the Synagogue, Church of All Nations and have concluded that he is a man of God and that his work is of the Holy Spirit.His chief critic was denounced by this watchdog group as morally bankrupt and an adulterer who has political ambitions. The overseas critics are relying on hearsay evidence and none of them have personally visited the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. A more factual account from someone who has visited the Church of the Synagogue is written by Professor Willem Ouweneel, a prominent Dutch theologian who holds doctorates in biology, philosophy and theology. He lectures in Universities in Switzerland, Holland, South Africa and Germany. He is of Brethren background but is thoroughly satisfied of the genuineness of the miracles and vindicates the theology of Prophet Joshua. Are you satisfied the healing miracles are genuine? Absolutely. One cannot watch the above videos without being convinced of their authenticity. Apart from which I saw healing miracles for myself when he prayed for the sick.Four of the seven members of our team also received healings. What sort of a man is he to speak to? He is extremely humble and continually gives the glory to God. What is the attitude of the church members? They display the fruit of the Holy Spirit to an extent that I have rarely seen before. One has a sense of being loved, there is a sense of joy, of peace, gentleness, temperance, faith and meekness. Did the church members you spoke to know much about the bible? Yes, our whole group was surprised at the sound scriptural knowledge of those we spoke to. How do you know he is not an occultist? I have been involved in the deliverance ministry for over 30 years. I have written such books as "Demons Defeated" which has been translated into many languages and "How To Cast Out Demons And Break Curses". I have also taught on deliverance in many countries. I carefully watched the ministry of Joshua and I am totally satisfied that he is casting out demons in the name of Jesus Christ. As Jesus said "satan cannot cast out satan". He constantly casts out demons by the power of God. He constantly upholds the name of Jesus Christ, gives glory to God and his preaching is biblically inspired. The work of the Holy Spirit is clearly evident among the church members. Also one of the above videos shows a dead man being raised by the power of God.

Why I went Having watched many miraculous healings on videos from the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Nigeria a group of three New Zealand pastors and four evangelists including myself went to the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Nigeria and lived there for nine days and nights. We wanted to satisfy ourselves that T.B. Joshua is a man of God and miracles were in fact taking place What we saw Blind eyes opened, cripples walking and dozens of testimonies from people who had been healed of HIV and other diseases. Some of us received healings ourselves. Spiritual overview We heard the name of Jesus Christ being continuously uplifted, the Gospel, repentance and salvation being continuously preached and the work of the Holy Spirit honoured. After nine days at the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations we concluded that T.B. Joshua is indeed a man of God and these are the works of God. Group from New Zealand Among our group there were three senior pastors, two evangelists and two men leading major Christian work in New Zealand. Between us we had 180 years of ministry. Our conclusion was that this is truly a work of God.

THE TRUTH ABOUT T.B.JOSHUA Only highly educated people believe everything they read without checking if it is true. The education system encourage this bad behaviour. It is based on now proven facts that human Evolution is a scam. Science make TRUTH into lies for personal fame and position. Look into the science of psychiatry and see for yourself the terrible suffering they still cause humans today. Education is the pimary block to all things spiritual. Humans are spiritual beings. Ignore this fact and suffer. It is a shame that many believe all the false stories about a man called Prophet T.B. Joshua that is helping millions of suffering people. There is too much real evidence that can be tested in a court of law that will prove that they are responding to lies. There are thousands of Pastors, doctors, medical specialists and satanic follower etc, that is doing their very best to destroy the good work that Prophet T.B.Josua is doing. A person should ask themselves, what could these peoples motives be ? Fear of loss is a powerful motivator as we all know. Lets examine only one motive briefly; Pastors -- loss Doctors – loss Medical specialists -- loss Satanic followers --- loss Security companies -- loss Police force jobs --- loss Read more about World renowned C.S. Upthegrove’s experiences when he went to Scoan. Only a truly corrupt fool can deny what C.S. Upthegrove had to say. If you are a truth seeker you will do proper research. By the way, do these people that curse and mock Prophet T.B.Joshua love people enough to help them with their education bursaries, relationship problem, financial trouble, the homeless in many countries, terminal deseases, etc. Ask these mockers to help they will all say , nooooooooo !

Professor Ouweneel holds doctorates in biology (Utrecht), philosophy (Amsterdam) and theology (Bloemfontein, RSA). He is a theology and philosophy professor at several colleges and theological faculties. He is the author of over 100 books. He lives in the Netherlands, where he was born. THIS IS THE OFFICIAL STATEMENT HE MADE IN 2002: 10 August 2002 “I come from a Brethren background and not a charismatic background. So naturally I was a bit reluctant to go to Nigeria, but my daughter went there several times and she gave me the message that T.B. Joshua was interested in seeing me, although she had not told him anything about me. So I went there twice, once for five days in March 2002, and once for ten days in June 2002, and I hope to go there again in October 2002. I was very much impressed by what I saw, heard and experienced there. Not so much only in seeing the miracles that happened and the sermons that were given, but particularly the spiritual experience in my own soul when I was there. That is something that everyone who doesn’t go there in person will miss. You will not experience personally what it is to be at such a sacred place where I felt the Lord’s presence in a particular way and where He spoke to me on things that He had not spoken on to me previously in such a powerful way.

A presiding President gives testimony in The Holy Scoan Church, Nigeria. The testimony of Ghana’s new head, Prof. Atta Mills, alone is enough to confirm the genuineness and greatness of Joshua’s ministry and calling. Has history ever heard of a sitting president visit a church and publicly testify that the pastor accurately predicted the outcome and specific details of the election to him? His testimony echoes the tens of thousands who rush to Joshua’s church on a weekly basis to receive a touch from God.

History is full of examples of men being used by the Almighty without human mentorship. This awe inspiring event is not isolated to the instance of The Holy Prophet TB Joshua. Thorough biblical exploration would reveal many of God’s generals with no record or register of human mentorship. Who was the mentor of Jeremiah, who the Bible says God called right from his mother’s womb? Who was the mentor of John the Baptist, sent from above to prepare the way for the Saviour? Who was the mentor of Apostle Paul, who was blinded on the road to Damascus while intent on the destruction of Christians, subsequently to become a leading figure in New Testament Christianity? What about Moses, Elijah or King David? Human backing and tuition are clearly not a qualification for divine assignments.”

The godless Pentecostal leaders started the terrible attacks on the Holy Scoan Church, Nigeria. These fake leaders are behaving the same way the so-called holy church leaders of Jesus time behaved. When these fake Pharisees/ holy church men said to Jesus that he is doing all the miracles because satan gives him the power to do it. Jesus said of them, "satan will not and can not work against himself. " The godless Pentecostal leaders are behaving just like the godless and fake pharisee churchmen who said to the Holy Jesus that no one taught him, meaning no one ordained him so where did he get the authority to be priest/ Pastor/ Clergyman, etc. All this, show that the Holy Jesus, the sent Messiah is again on trial today. The time in now ! These vicious Pentecostal leaders will have to admit in secret that “truly Christ is risen” and is alive still. When Church leader are to blind to understand the scientific evidence of the Healing, Signs and Wonders coming directly from the world wide testimonies of thousands upon thousands of people of all religions that has been to Scoan or who prayed with the Holy Prophet TB Joshua on Emmanuel TV, Such Church leaders will soon be without a church and worse thing will happen to them.

The Holy Scoan Church, has blessed me. Every time I watch the Deliverance of Evil spirits and healing of terminal sickness on Emmanuel TV I witness the deepest love of Jesus the Messiah for the suffering masses regardless of their religion. The sincere suffering masses from all religions and cults world wide, finally have scientific verifiable evidence that the Messiah, Jesus Christ came to usher in a new covenant through the Holy Scoan Church, Nigeria, that provides abundant evidence of the full LOVE of the Father for them, which is free deliverance from Demons, free healing even from terminal sickness and free material blessings and all kind of breakthrough. MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS.

It is a sin for sick people to go into a church of CHRIST and go home the same. As witnessed at the Holy Scoan Church Nigeria. Everyone has enough faith to be healed instantly whether they are Jew, Muslim, Buddist or even So-called Christians. Their faith is shown by coming forward for the healing. Their faith is always enough ! It is the superior faith of the healer that is needed to complete the healing, not the small faith of the congregation. Jesus said to his apprentice healers, “unto you is given the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven.” Unto the masses he said, “ if you have faith as small as a mustard seed.” Because of Prophet TB Joshua’s compassion for unbelievers such as the medical scientific community and the unbelieving clergy, no one can come for healing at SCOAN anymore unless they have medical (scientific) proof of their problems. This is inline with the way Jesus Christ and his disciples worked. They always provided proof of the love of God while fixing all the problems of the suffering masses.

We have witnessed an unrighteous war against Holy Prophet TB Joshua and the overwhelming evidence based healings done in the Holy Scoan Church, Nigeria. This attack is a fear based approach against what science loving Satanists love most. Satanists love logic and science and reject God, that’s why horrible Frontal Lobotomies were routinely done in spite of the horrific scientific results. Millions of patients brains were destroyed by forcing an Ice-pick through both eyeballs of the patients into the brain without any anaesthetics, the Ice-pick was roughly scraped around inside the skull hoping to destroy the Frontal Lobe of the brain. Medical science proudly claimed these Frontal Lobotomies is done to heal patients of depression, etc. Psychological and psychiatric problems are really all spiritual problems. See the mind-blowing evidence on Emmaneual TV or Youtube.com.

Gods miracle healings have no negative side effects. Prophet TB Joshua freely gives evidence of scientific medically verifiable truth. Not that medical science can ever be the judge here, as history sadly proves. In the Holy Scoan Church, Nigeria, people of many different religions and belief systems from all over the world are healed completely and then verified by a lower role player known as medical science. It is a sin for sick people to go into any church of JESUS CHRIST and go home the same. World wide, thousands of Satanists, Spiritualists, Medical specialists and self-serving leaders of religion are panic stricken because of the miraculous work done at The Holy Scoan Church, Nigeria. These cowardly people are afraid, very, very afraid of their future. What are they afraid of loosing ? They don’t care for the future of their people, they don’t care if their people don’t get healed and delivered from their suffering. They only want to get rich off the money of their suffering flock.

On a deeper level, all spiritual inheritance come from God who is the creator of all things spiritual. This very powerfully demonstrated 24hrs daily on Emmanuel TV. What Israel fail to accept is that " all things were made through the Word, nothing was made without Word." The Word is the Messiah. The Jews rejected the messiah and violently continue to do so today. Gentile/Christians owe Israel nothing ! Jesus said to the Jews that were rejecting Him, "Your Father is Satan, that’s why you want to kill me." Today we witness again the same Satanic desire to destroy the Miracles, Signs and Wonders that are scientifically verifiable coming out of the Holy Scoan Church. All this was meant for the Jews. How stupid of the Jews to reject such mind-blowing power. Two thousand years on and the Jews are still destroying Christian churchs. As Jesus said, Satan is their Father.
