TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com
WOW! We have avoided this for long but we will talk.
God has created people in different ways with different interests and opinions just as he has created pastors/ prophets with different callings, different ways of running their ministries and we cannot say God has made a mistake regarding this issue and we cannot blame God on the other hand for our bad choices (ex- disciples as they now refer to SCOAN). Please read our post Strong Attack Launched Against TB Joshua
to follow the article.
I will not focus on whether Prophet T.B Joshua has done what he is being accused of or not or if it good or bad but will rather focus on my points of interests. Most of the disciples complain of:
1.denial of privacy – What do you want to do in Private? When you’re still single and not living with your husband? is there anything good done in private?
2.late night meetings – In a church as busy as SCOAN do you think there will be time for the Prophet to have un-interrupted meeting with the disciples? and for him to schedule such appointments with them it’s because of his love for them and that he considers his disciples important and deserve enough time with him. Only if those ex- disciples knew how lucky they were.
3.sleep deprivation – I think it’s a good idea that one should spend more time awake than sleeping, I would rather be awake than to be sleeping and being attacked all night by spiritual husbands, be fed all night with demonic food, socializing with the dead etc. I would rather be living in a place like SCOAN where we will only focus on building our tomorrow in Christ and building an empire that will sustain our generations to come both spiritually and physically because anyway we were told that this world is not our home we are just passing through and our true rest will be in heaven packaged with our rewards for our work well done here on earth by the Lord. There’s no enough time left, our mission in Christ is to win as many souls to him as possible before it’s too late. one should not be worried about “sleeping” but rather fighting to do their best in what they are called for.
4.reporting – okay is this the reporting of good or the bad that you have done? well if somebody says “I don’t like being reported” mainly they refer to being reported for the bad they have done! SCOAN is a church and those living there should be careful of what they do because they are much more closer to Jesus (they can hide from the Prophet but cannot hide from Jesus) and I am sure the reason the Prophet came out with this strategy was to reduce mistakes and bad actions. So if a disciple sees it as wrong it means they were willing to live with their bad habits for life in the presence of Christ himself? Besides if you don’t like being reported for the bad things you do why not try and do your best to make it a point that whenever there is a report concerning you it should be always good reports only… Why not pray and tell the Lord that he should help you in your daily activities that you don’t make mistakes? Remember Going to SCOAN is not to please Prophet T.B Joshua but Jesus himself…
5.They also live in compounds – Well sometimes its not nice to share a room with more than 5 people but if you are called by God to do something he wants you to do then living in a compound should not be a hindrance between you and your God and that should not be a reason for one to claim this as the basis of leaving the SCOAN.
6.I may never see my loved ones – Trust me if you are at the SCOAN called by the Lord God himself you will not have time to think about your family or friends but rather you will be occupied with the load of work the Lord has called you for. Remember there are those who go to SCOAN to become disciples with their own expectations and there are those who God has prepared from home with a life time table of what they should accomplish together with the prophet at a certain period in life. When you know what God has called you for, time frame will not be a priority.
Again God designs ministries differently to suit different callings and people if the Prophet says “avoid contact with your family” this statement will be received by individuals differently some will take it like “Emma” some will take it like me who won’t even have to wait for the Prophet to utter that statement but would rather make him promise me that he will never allow any of my people, friends or family near the SCOAN for as long as live there and not even to entertain their phone calls or emails because of what I have gone through in their care… so you see God is the one who gives directions in life. Read about Jesus and his family including brothers and sisters you will understand. Besides I believe that your husband or wife should be above all relatives and should be worth you leaving your mother and father brothers and sisters and even friends to be with him or her, the one God has created you for as a husband or wife because I believe most of the ex disciples didn’t have to leave their husbands or wives at home!
7.I have no qualifications – The Prophet is giving out scholarships for heaven’s sake to people all over the world, to people he does not even know and you as an ex disciple want to tell me that you have asked him (TBJ) to sponsor you and he refused? for 10 years you have asked and he plainly refused? I don’t think so, I think you also never thought of studying just as he didn’t…
8. no proof of what I’ve done with my life – That is not an excuse one cannot blame the Prophet for not doing anything with their life for 10 years, okay When you left SCOAN did you sit down with the Prophet and tell him all the things your now telling the world? did you tell him and he did not listen? did you tell him that you have wasted 10 years of your life and he must compensate you for all those years? I can sense a no I was afraid for my life! Then let me tell you that you were not meant to be there in the first place, if the Prophet is as bad as all the ex – disciples say and are all afraid of him (remember there is a difference between being afraid of someone and respecting someone) then they should have went to a weaker Prophets like them and leave T.B Joshua with those God has designed to follow him because I am sure that those who were divinely created to follow T.B Joshua are as bold as he is, they understand the importance of speaking out in a respectful way without being afraid that he will harm them (they know that their lives are in God’s hands and no man can do anything to harm them because greater is he in them) (what kind of disciples were you? maybe the reason things didn’t go well is you missed the whole point that everything at SCOAN is all about Jesus.) they are fearless, not afraid of challenges, they know who T.B Joshua is spiritually and if he does something wrong to them or offend them they have a personal relationship with his master Jesus and they can simply go down on their knees and report him (TBJ) to his Master, the King of all Kings who has authority both in heaven and on earth to do as he pleases and he will surely deal with the situation. instead of you running away and not facing your challenges with the Prophet.
Everything that the ex- disciples complain about are little things read about the relationship of Jesus and his disciples how he used to speak to them, try Elijah and the others and you will see that TBJ is a sweet man of God… To prove that Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever try and ask from him something that is not in line with his will for your life and see if he will give you, try and fast and pray for years and you will understand what I am talking about. Ask TBJ for a house, a car, scholarship, a cheque for $1 million and see if he will refuse to give you, he won’t he will give you instantly…. and tell me who is being strict and harsh between the two…
As for me if I am to be given the opportunity to be a disciple at SCOAN I would stay there for the rest of my life and I would not stay there to be rewarded by the prophet for the number of years I have spend there but I would expect all my rewards to be from God and if there is anything I don’t understand or don’t like about the ministry or the prophet I will raise up my concerns with the Prophet whether good or bad instead of following what the masses are saying or suspecting of him so that life may continue. I would prefer to rather stay there for life God will surely bless from there, if he can do it for those who only go there for Sunday services alone how much more I who will be serving him from there day and night? surely my reward will be greater…
The Truth is that, such stories are not new. Take Judas in the bible, did he not work with Jesus for 3 years, saw signs and wonders ate with him from the same table and plate? He was at a point one of the disciples that was given power to cast out demons and heal the sick when Jesus sent His disciple out to preach repentance, yet Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.
Firstly, she mentioned that they lived a communal life-In the days of Jesus and apostles they all sold everything and brought together for a communal living (e.g. story of Ananias and Sapphires)hence there was great signs and wonders happening and people feared greatly. No one had more than anyone they were all in one accord.
Furthermore, if there was no privacy as she stated, how come she could be sexually abused and nobody see’s it? Someone who is living in sin cannot posses such anointing to do consistent signs and wonders for over 30 years, and the anointing is still increasing day by day. Using the case of Bisola Johnson, hence shows that they are birds of the same feather. The story of Bisola Johson and was in clear contradiction on why she came to SCOAN. If we had not seen the SCOAN side of her story one would have been inclining towards the lies in her story. As the saying goes liars have no memory. Glory to God the prophet has insight through divine backing and hence records every activity that goes on within the SCOAN.
Secondly, the bible clearly states that to be a disciple of Jesus you must count the cost (you must leave your families, loved ones and be totally committed to the things of God). . Paul said all I have, gained etc.. I have counted loss, that he may gain the Excellency of Christ. That is why people want to indulge in their secret sins and life and expect the anointing to flow, you then begin to wonder why there is no such power in our churches these days as in the time of the prophets and apostles. The issue is majority that fall out wants to do what they like and expect to be a disciple, they forget that to have the anointing is not man but God who gives the anointing based on a well developed character. God knowing what Emma will do has not giving her such anointing because He knows her too well, her foundation is faulty.
In the SCOAN the prophet has made no room for any to fall into sin. The bible says you shall write the word of God everywhere, windows, doors, walls, in our generation through media so that you will be constantly reminded of the WORD of God and be careful to do them. Therefore, I do not see anything wrong in playing Emmanuel.TV at SCOAN all the time. Individuals at home watch Emmanuel.TV 24/7 and receive their miracles, how much more the SCOAN. Agents of Satan are all looking for avenues to attack, but they will never succeed. The prophet works with divine inspiration from the Holy Spirit who guides him and tells him how to do things.
,I have many more things to say but will end with these words: Jesus clearly stated that if they called HIM (who is the Master) names, persecuted Him, then His servants should expect same. If the world (note the world is ruled by Satan and his agents) loves you, then you are not of Christ. But glory to God who has sent His servant in the person of Prophet TB Joshua, to expose the works of darkness and his tricks in the world today.
