RE: TB Joshua Took Advantage of me – Jim Iyke


tb joshua Jim Iyke

Jim Iyke’s Deliverance

My beloved Jim, I watched the video of your interview on Channels TV and I fully understand your frustration. No one is offended by your comments in the interview and my reply is not in any way met to condemn you but to tell you the truth as a token of my love.

I really don’t share the belief that you may have been contacted by the Prophet enemies and they have induced you with some benefits to say whatever you are saying right now or you are trying to save face because you have been made to believe that your encounter with God 4years ago was an embarrassment. But I am however surprised about your sudden change because you were actually the one defending your deliverance and was so excited that you had such a great encounter with God in the SCOAN.

Putting every doubts and speculation aside, I, however, think that your present frustration is a manifestation of your wrong belief system about the things of God and also your perception of T.B Joshua’s ministry. You said even if it was in hell there was a cure for your mum’s sickness, you would have go there and you also said you found the deliverance in the SCOAN laughable and your sister has to pinch you to tell you to stop. Those statements have much to say about your belief system.

These show that you neither understand the ways of God nor have faith in Him.  Your coming to the SCOAN to seek the face of God was based on a condition, “you must heal my mother”. T.B. Joshua is a man of God that works under the supervision of the Holy Ghost he is not a native doctor or a spiritualist that treat sick people. The healings and deliverance that take place in the SCOAN are for the salvation of your soul. You would not have bothered coming to the SCOAN since your motive was just for healing and not for your salvation. Instead, you would have gone to see a doctor or a spiritualist that may promise you instant healing.

If your faith in God is based on a condition that is not faith, you don’t condition God by saying, “I am coming to you so you can heal and bless me.” Meaning if God did not heal and bless you, you will not serve Him. God is looking for believers that will still have faith in Him even if their expectation were not meet.

Those that will say even if I’m healed or not God is still my healer, whether I’m saved or not God is still my saviour. Like the three Hebrew men: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who said to king Nebuchadnezzar,  “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.”  (Daniel 3:17-18) There believe in God went beyond their present situation. They were ready to defend their faith and not worship the king’s gods even if God chooses to save them or not – that is the power of faith and that is the kind of faith Christ is looking for.

If you want to stabilise your faith in Christ Jesus in this unstable world, below are some tips that will help you to have peace of mind and stop bothering yourself with unexpected questions that may affect your peace:

  1. There are questions about life we cannot answer
  2. There are things in life we can never explain
  3. There are things in life we can never change
  4. There are things in life you cannot control
  5. There are things in life you cannot stop
  6. There are things in life we are not responsible for
  7. There are things God can never explain to you – Let God be God.

I will end it here and I don’t want to say much to avoid a wrong interpretation of my motives. Just as the Prophet will say “Our response to a person who makes a mistake can also be a mistake if we are not careful.”

PART ONE: Disunity Among Great Men


“….upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” – Mathew 16:18b

Nigeria is one of those nations blessed by God with great Ministers of the gospel called with a unique impartation of God’s supernatural grace to preach the gospel to nations of the world with power. These great Men of God are so mightily used by God that their names being mention, send waves of confusion in the kingdom of darkness. So great they are, that their names are in symbolic to modern Pentecostalism, but then comes the bone of contention, some among them doubt the calling of their compatriot professing the same Faith of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ and this Satan has used to sow seeds of contentions amongst the heads of the different dominations of the Church.

Indeed Christ warned the church to beware of fake Prophets, Pastors and false teachers who are wolves within but in disguise, comes outwardly in sheep’s clothing. However, Christ Jesus gave the Church a clue on how to know these false teachers – “By their Fruits”.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.” – Mathew 7: 15-16

This means the outcome of their works which must be measured only by biblical standards ought to be used to determine their genuineness. The standards spelt out by the scripture did not say we should determine their callings by what we hear other people say about them or from what we heard and read in the news media, but according to the light of God’s word. As Christians, the Bible is our standard, not public opinion or how logical the issue is to our reason faculty because the human interpretation of truth is always limited when it comes to the things of the Spirit.

God works in mysterious ways, He does not need anyone permission to call whom He wants to call nor does he always need the role of another man of God to anoints whom He wants to anoints; God does as He wills. Therefore, we should always be careful with what we say and conclude about others because the future is a mystery. Irrespective of our great works of spreading the gospel, the crowd we control and the calibres of men/women that look up to us for mentorship, God is still far-far ahead of us in everything we have accomplished. There is no perfect one on earth, as humans, we can make wrong judgements; only God is infallible. That’s why as believers we should always try and go deeper to find the truth of everything, instead of just taking whatever our pastors or anyone tell us and the purest truth is always right there before us in the word of God, the Bible.

I once heard a popular man of God said in one of his Sunday sermons that the work of God is so complicated that a genuine man of God can sometimes not recognised another man of God. I was like, how is that possible, I discovered that even in the scripture, there were controversies among God’s brethren. Some persons in the early Church challenged Paul’s calling to be an Apostle. They went as far as attacking his credibility and spiritual qualification. They believe he was not called by God and not worthy of the respect he was getting. In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian Church, he responded and counsels the believers not to be led astray by those causing strife in the Church. He wrote that even if what he was about to say sound unreasonable and foolish, he would say it anyway so that they would return to the true gospel.

“Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I. Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness— besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?” –  2 Corinthian 11: 22-29

In the passage of the scripture above, Paul listed out what he has gone through for the sake of the gospel. He gave those lists to proof his genuineness. He was trying to make them understand that if indeed he was not genuinely called by God, he could not have been able to go through all those challenges and does all those great works he had done to spread the gospel. He was able to stand firm in Faith even in the face of tribulation and hardship because God was involved in his ministry.

What can we believers learn from Paul’s letter? Before anyone must take a conclusive stand about another minister of the gospel or any person, he/she should take a time to go through that person’s antecedents, what they have gone through for the sake of the gospel and how resolute they are in the kingdom business even in the face of tribulation and attack.

For anyone out there to even think of start castigating Prophet T.B. Joshua and his ministry, why not take a look at his unwavering passion for the work of Christ even in the face of persecutions, intimidations and rejection. There is an online video of the Prophet- “Where Will T.B. Joshua Go Next؟؟؟.” There is a scene in that video of the Prophet being welcome to the nation of Botswana for a crusade. He said something to the cheerful crowd that caught my attention. He said, “I am here to do what I was born for, and I am living for, and I am going to die for.” It only takes a man of great passion and a strong vision for the work of Christ to make such declaration. Can one die for what he was not genuinely called for? It only takes a genuine purpose to live and die for something. And indeed, one can clearly see that the life and ministry of the Prophet is a testimony to that declaration. TO BE CONTINUE

ITALY EARTHQUAKE AND FRANCE TERRORIST ATTACK, BLAME T.B. JOSHUA?


Italy earthquake France attack Tb Joshua

Prophet T.B Joshua

It is so unfortunate that many, especially those in authorities in our present world don’t have value for human lives anymore that our pride and arrogance against the truth means nothing to us even when innocent human lives are involved. Instead of us to humble ourselves and learn from our mistakes, we tend to be looking for whom to blame in our misfortunes.

The Italy Earthquake Prophecy is not the first among countless accurate Prophecies by Prophet T.B. Joshua to nations around the world that has come to fulfillment because of the “I don’t care attitude” by those in authorities that supposed to take the necessary precautionary steps to make sure that no lives were lost.

It is true the prophet always call on his congregation and Emmanuel.TV viewers all over the world to always pray against the fulfillment of these tragic events. The question is what do the leaders of those nations do when they heard that something tragic were said would occur in their nations? The answer is nothing! Even when efforts were made to draw the attentions of these leaders to those Prophecies they ignore it and act as if they are ignorant that the lives of their citizens whom they are supposed to protect are in imminent danger.

It is unbecoming that world leaders we look upon always take for granted serious security issues that has to do with lives and destruction of properties. Even when they are quite aware of the status of Prophet T.B. Joshua, with his accurate local and international Prophetic records, but would act deaf out of sheer ignorant and arrogance to these disturbing Prophecies about their respective nations. When the Prophecy now comes to fulfillment they would start accusing the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua of taking advantage of negative Prophecy instead of them to ask God for repentance and amend their ways.

Those who want us to believe that the Prophet is taking advantage of those tragedies are not being fair in their arguments against Prophet T.B. Joshua. As good citizens of the world, our priority is to promote world peace and the better life for all, irrespective of nation, religion, race and tribe. We should always encourage nations and leaders all over the world to always listen to the voice of God through his humble Prophet. By so doing, they would quickly take proactive measures to stop any imminent disasters exposed by God’s Prophet rather than, wrongly accusing the God sent Prophet among us for exposing the evil plan of the devil…READ MORE

SCOAN VS the Lekki Gardens Building Collapse: The Fallacy of Composition


@bukolasaraki @AkinwunmiAmbode @NGRPresident #ProbeTBJSCOANAttack #MissionOfMilitaryAirplane #SCOANGuestHouse

@bukolasaraki @AkinwunmiAmbode @NGRPresident #ProbeTBJSCOANAttack #MissionOfMilitaryAirplane #SCOANGuestHouse

It is so ridiculous how some persons, out of their short-sighted reasoning are quick to generalise and link the Lekki Garden building collapse to that of the guest house of The Synagogue Church of all Nation (SCOAN) which has been clearly made known by the SCOAN that the church building collapse was as a result of sabotage. They claim if Lekki Garden collapse was due to faulty construction (Still under investigation) therefore SCOAN guest house collapsed was also as a result of same phenomenon. This is a pure error in reasoning.

Linking the Lekki Garden case to that of SCOAN is fallacious; in academics it’s called the Fallacy of Composition. If a member in family A is HIV positive, we therefore conclude that all members of Family A are all HIV positive. Boko Haram is a terrorist group from Northern Nigerian; we therefore conclude that all Northern Nigerians are Boko Haram terrorist. This pattern of reasoning is purely an error, and such conclusions normally emanate out of hate, bias and misleading tendency. The SCOAN case should be investigated according to the available evidences and likewise should other building collapse cases in Lagos be handled and investigated according to the tendered evidences, not linking or comparing one to the other because they are of different phenomenon.

It is important to know that apart from the one-sided verdict of the illegitimate Coroner Oyetade Komolafe’s inquest and the disinformation emanating from some well know Anti-SCOAN media on the actual cause of the SCOAN guest house collapse, the record still stands that the SCOAN guest house was attacked. Therefore, for one to say because of the Lekki Garden building collapse in Lagos, all buildings that collapsed including that of SCOAN are all due to structural failure is pure lies and we are advising members of the public not to be misled by this gimmick emanating from the pit of hell to divert attention and cover-up the SCOAN guest house attack. As it stands, the Nigerian government has failed to answer the question about the military airplane that was used to attack the SCOAN guest house. Till date, the identity of the pilot and crew on board in the military airplane remains unknown. If indeed they are not guilty why hiding them? We are calling for total Justice for all; the government should not shade the major suspect and persecute the victim….READ MORE

TB Joshua: Exposed AT Last! (PART ONE)


It’s being long we received this article from the person concerned, we kept it to verify the authenticity of the story, Read and be blessed.

It was very hard for me to comprehend what life had to offer to a man like me facing all sorts of problems, limitations and hardships which made me look like a living dead, little did I know all these numerous and uncountable problems were due to the treacherous way I lived my Christian life in the past. I went through a lot of difficulties during the early stage of my life which still makes me shake my head pitifully during my reminiscence.

I reside at Garki, Abuja in Nigeria where I grew up presuming T.B. Joshua as a false prophet, deceiver, scammer and even the devil’s incarnate. All these attributed to the man of God made me develop a deep hatred towards him without really finding out the truth or even knowing what exactly made me hate him so much with passion. I used to involve myself in anti-T.B. Joshua discussions, discouraged Christians and even unbelievers to never watch the man of God on Emmanuel TV and I went as far as publishing many articles online and in local newspapers with a sole aim to blaspheme and counter any single thing concerning T.B. Joshua.

As if these were not enough, I partnered with some locals that heard the same thoughts with me about T.B. Joshua and we kept on spreading this negative gospel as much as we could. During this time, we noticed that the more we blasphemed, the more the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) kept on increasing with an alarming congregation and the man of God’s anointing ceased to stop increasing drastically; this was a mystery to us. It made us confused and stunned but despite this fact, we continued criticizing SCOAN the more and this was a great battle. When many years passed, I decided to give up the fight but I never stopped believing the man of God was false. I never tuned to Emmanuel TV and I vowed to never take even a glance at the channel.

The tragedy of my life commenced when I lost my dad and mum in an automobile crash on the 23rd of March, 2014 and this made me ponder over how my siblings (a set of twins – a young boy and girl) and I would make ends meet; I am the eldest child therefore I decided to take responsibilities. I am far older then my siblings because it took my parents 16 years to give birth to another child after I was born. Back then, I was into trading of building materials- Tiles, ceiling, roofing sheets, cable wire, steel rods etc. I faced a lot of challenges during this period and felt like committing suicide. My business was not moving forward and I was finding it difficult to pay my suppliers. My younger sister (one of the twins) became very ill therefore I had to rush her to the hospital, the doctor told me she had leukemia a very deadly disease especially to a girl of her age (she was just 11 years old).

When my appalling problems persisted, I decided to take a bold step; I went to a friend of mine pleading for assistance, but his unimaginable response was what increased my problem. He told me to come along with him to his private room which I eagerly did because of my desperate search for money; surprisingly I found myself in a tunnel looking room which was an inner chamber filled with splashes of blood stain all over the wall. This initially made me scared but I summoned up courage because of my despicable situation, he then told me all what I sew in that room at that time were his source of wealth. I was startled but kept calm; he proceeded by asking me if I was ready to accept the terms he was about to give me? I answered affirmatively without hesitation. He then smiled and poured a yellowish liquid on my head which looked more like he was embarking on a demonic cult initiation process. He asked me many weird questions to which I answered affirmatively without even thinking about the consequences. One of these questions was this: “do you vow to worship the walls of this great fraternity no matter what comes?” I still answered with a loud yes to this question.

I was so eager to make money without knowing I had just added to my problems immensely. I started seeing demonic creatures chasing me in my dreams because of this demonic initiation; my days were filled with acute pain and sometimes I felt my heart was about to drop. After my initiation, my financial life was still down and as a result of this; I had no penny not to talk of taking care of my sick sister and her starving twin brother. I went back to my friend who initiated me to explain things to him but he told me the abominable, he asked me to do the appropriate thing which he said was to kidnap an underage girl, a virgin for a spiritual ritual. He said after the rituals I would finally become rich and I won’t see those creatures in my dreams again. He also said if I choose not to perfume the rituals, there was nothing he could do for me; when I tried to tell him I was no longer interested in his evil cult, he threatened me severely and told me not to try quitting the cult nor tell anyone about it. He told me that if I tried to go against his warning, I would die immediately. I became very scared, then I immediately left his house and ran to the doctor to ask about the status of my younger sister, he told me she was very weak and would die soon if I didn’t provide the necessary finance for her treatment…READ MORE

 

Nigerian Government reaction: The SCOAN Vs the Arabian Pilgrim saga


What a world of catastrophe…! I sometimes wonder why men do not co-exist peacefully without experiencing misfortunes and tragedies. It is so ironic indeed that even when one choose to remain a peace maker, trouble will still come and knock at one’s door. As at the month of September last year, 2015, there were two major heartbroken incidents that happened in Saudi Arabia- the Crane crash and Stampede which led to the death of many Islamic pilgrims. Nigerians were not left out among those that lost their live in both incidents. Prominent citizens from that country even a traditional ruler (Emir) was among those that lost their life as a result of the crane crash and stampede that happened at Mecca and the Jamrat Complex (Stoning site) respectively in Mina, Saudi Arabia. It should be of note also that last two year in the same month of September 12th 2014 there was a similar incident in Nigeria which was the building collapse that occurred at the premises of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) that led to the death of a number of visiting pilgrims to the church.

Fallen Crane at Mecca

Fallen Crane at Mecca

So far so good, it is obvious that the Nigerian government has taken the Saudi Arabian tragedy in good faith, they have seen the incidents as an act of God. And I really applaud this show of maturity by the government for taking this issue as the will of God, unlike others that would have wanted to cause much controversy due to this unfortunate tragic incident that may end up creating a diplomatic-war between the Nigerian government and the Saudi Arabian government.

In Nigeria, it is unfortunate that the level of maturity the government is using to handle the Arabian incident has not been the same way they are handling the Synagogue case. There has been a bone of contention between the Nigerian Government and the ministry of SCOAN on the actual cause of the unfortunate incidence, unlike that of Saudi Arabia that even up till now a number of the Nigerian victims can’t be accounted for.

SCOAN Collapse building

SCOAN Collapse building

Statistics has shown that the number of people that died in the Arabian crane crash and stampede of which many Nigerian prominent citizens lost their lives is more than the victims of the SCOAN building collapse. This is not really about the comparison; for sure life is precious, one life that is lost is as valuable as a thousand lives that are lost. The point is that, ‘why is the Nigerian government handling that of the Arabian in a very compromising way yet, chose to add more pains to that which affected their own’.

Why do Nigerians keep washing their dirty linens outside? Why do they cease to remember those who dry them up when it rains and provide shelter to the homeless? The government actions seem biased towards the probing of the SCOAN incident. They are busy finding irrelevant facts about the incident even when they are aware of the fact that the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua, has been of great economic benefit to the country. SCOAN has presented itself as a huge source of financial, social and even moral value to the nation of Nigeria. Even at one time the then Nigerian president Umaru Musa Yar’adua (of blessed memory) gave an outstanding award to the Prophet as the Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) of Nigeria, due to his ministry’s benevolence towards its citizens and also as the highest recorded immigrant of other countries into Nigeria, which has greatly affected the nation’s economy positively. Dear Nigerians, why bite the finger that fed you well? As the saying goes in the Holy Bible, a prophet is never honored in his country.

They claimed they want justice!……Justice? I ask, has the Nigerian government probed, sanctioned or made any move whatsoever towards the Arabian government concerning the loss of Nigerian citizens in Saudi Arabia? Has the Arabian government been called to order? Even when their delegates were sent to the Nigerian Senate President, the Nigerians were mainly concerned about how to build their international relationship with the Arabian government and never tackled the issue at hand. I’m not against the fact that they are being considerate with the Saudi Arabian government because they wouldn’t want to add more pains to their misfortunes. My point is; why is the same government not also understanding with the ministry of the Synagogue Church of all Nations? Who is deceiving who? The Nigerian government is trying to show they care about justice but instead they are acting as if they have a hidden agenda towards an innocent citizen who has contributed spiritually and economically towards the development of the country. They even called the man of God fake forgetting that all good and perfect gift comes from God (James 1:17).

Military air craft captured went round the the SCOAN building before it collapsed

I’m not against any investigation but let it be done properly void of bias. The ministry of SCOAN has continued to insist and proven with concrete evidence that the building collapse was as a result of an attack yet, the government seems to be insensitive to the fact that one of the sectors that has been of great benefit to their nation’s economy is under great threat.
For decades, this man of God has been persecuted and yet he has been consistent in his Christian faith, so why can’t the SCOAN building collapse issue be forgone just as the Arabian incident was…? Why not leave the issue for God’s justification, instead of working towards his downfall. The Nigeria government has failed in their responsibility in protecting their national interest. If it were to be in an advanced society, the evidence so far provided by the ministry of SCOAN would have been highly considered. Obviously some of the problems of underdeveloped countries which Nigeria is not an exception is often characterized with injustice. Until the Nigerian government answers the question concerning the military air plane which hovered around the building and also look into the manner the building collapsed which is similar to controlled demolition, they would never be taken serious by the well informed minds and history will live to judge them.

Ebenezer Obadare , stop your lies on TB Joshua! Seek God


My dear fellow emeritus associate…kindly accepts my warmth affection. I am pleased that you are spending the commemoration birth of our lord Jesus Christ… compliments of the season my fellow emeritus.
I am quite captivated by your in-debt insight into the “Dangerous lies of TB Joshua”, Dear Mr Obadare.

obadare

Ebenezer Obadare

May I precisely debunk your mere peripheral insight about TB Joshua, contrail to your speculations and assumptions, I strongly oppose to your misconception and fallacious few pages article with the aforementioned captioned headline… the news of the declaration of the Leader of the Synagogue Church Of all Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua, as the “2015 Yoruba man of the year”. It is my utmost pleasure to ostensibly clarify you that the Ebge Omo Odua Parapo, is ranked foremost and at the Apex of other Yoruba group drawn far and sundry, comprising of almost (40 indigenous pan Yoruba group globally)
Admits these groups, enthusiastically bestowed this sheer ‘mark of honour and distinction upon TB Joshua’, was carefully selected amongst numerous nominees, irrespective of social statuses, ranks, professional aristocrats and technocrats of the Yoruba’s.
Therefore, may I draw your attention to your non articulated carelessness for wrong construction of grammar thereby insulting the integrity of the Yoruba’s at large? By your profile, you are an adherent advocate of the African condemning gay marriage practices, which is against the Africa culture; this obviously exposes your irrational and nonsensical approach towards values, moral and ethical issues.
I can clearly decipher your ill mannerism and jealously you hold against Prophet TB Joshua, and the Christendom, which our Holy Bible preaches sacred marriage of couples between two different sex, but people like you have turned against the gospel truth, defiled the sacred institutions laid down by God, people like you should honestly seek the face of our creator for reconciliation with Him.
Ironically, I can’t understand your attributing a special mark of distinction to your so called litigation on pilgrims of the SCOAN, permit me reiterate jealousy and ill-mannerism has beclouded your imaginations.
I don’t expect your calibre of person to stoop so low in condemning others. May I urge you to dissuade from your present stance, and hereby refute your non articulated fallacious deceptive article?
My dear so called associate prof. you are very deceptive and fake, stop your lies! Seek God.
