Amazed. Amazed. Pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua amazed me. I was part of a delegation that visited him two days into the new year, on the platform of the human rights community. Our mission was to find out more about the six layer building that collapsed with upsetting death toll. Many of us on the delegation were fuming prior, but had a completely different impression at the end of the encounter.

We were seated in a glistering restaurant located downstairs. Several visitors, like the rhythmical movement. of a millipede, strolled gently into the restaurant where they had their breakfast and then left. We spent the time watching his Emmanuel TV said to be available in close to 100 countries. I had taken time to walk through the huge estate, soaked in some angelic aura. Thousands of people milled around; whites, Asians, and many more whose red colours made it difficult to place their ancestral homesteads. I saw a completely different community, far away from the Nigerian rot: electricity supply was 24/7, residents were generally calm, cool and collected, not with the usually hasty and stiff-neck idiosyncrasies of the average Nigerian.

A white man that looked like his personal assistance came to usher us into the living room; simple, immaculate setting. On the wall were framed pictures of several world leaders that had

either visited him or had invited him into their country. At least, I saw him with the step mother of the President of the United States, Barrack Obama. One of Africa’s most powerful Kings, Goodwill Zwelithini, was also there. Years back, I had met the daughter of the Zulu King of South Africa. She told me she had epilepsy. She would be caught by the bug, almost every time during colossal, ceremonial events where she was to play a key role. She had visited so many countries in the world and met the best neuro- surgeons without success. She visited the church, and according to her, she was healed. There was also the picture of Pascal Lissouba, the former President of Congo amongst many other world leaders.

We were all waiting, speaking in low tones, perhaps , to meet the defined aura of some spiritual holiness and order. He walks into the living room in T-shirt on short nicker. He looks young, feminine and his eyes are like little comets. He has a piercing look. If he had not been a clergy, maybe, I thought in the realm of my cobweb of hallucinating imaginations, he probably could have been a farmer, or a diligent carpenter, if he had remained in his Arigidi homestead in Ondo State.

He has the look of an ordinary man, but as he walks into the room, some sort of extraordinary spirit in him caste in the space like a silhouette. As he opens his lips to reveal a set of what looked like milk teeth, in a charming smile, more like a reflex action, we all stand up to salute him.

In the recent past, I did not envy the so called men of God. I grew up as an Anglican. Later in life I became an atheist, having studied maxism, which places materialism at the center of human relations. It was not until after attending the bigger University of life and the tribulations thereof, that I sought a route back into the invisible creator of man, of plants, of animals, of the stars, of the creeping and flying things. So, for a long time, I saw religion as the opium of the masses, a set of people exploiting the gullibility of the poor, malnourished masses. A visit to the Synagogue Church of All Nations has now even rekindled some sort of conundrum.

He chooses his words, carefully. “I do not see myself as special. I’m just a man of God,” he says. He waits to see if you wanted to puncture him. On the collapsed building, Pastor Joshua insists the church was bombed. His logic is premised on the mystery plane that hovered around the building for some minutes before the big bang. What is shocking remains the fact that till date, neither the Federal Government nor the Federal Civil Aviation Authority, (FCCA) has come out to unravel the mystery plane. Who owns the plane? What was the mission of the plane? Where did the plane come from? Why should Nigeria allow this underlining dilemma to be swept under the carpet? We went on an inspection of the collapsed building. The sight is gory. Worst still, the FG has refused to make public the report of its findings. However, apart from the issue of the collapsed building, I was personally touched by the economic stories of the church. I’m not a member of the church. I do not intend to be a member, but I’m simply fascinated by the living stories built around the activities of the church, little wonder it appears the church is the biggest tourist attraction in Nigeria today. Though the purpose of our visit was on the collapsed building, we were enthralled by the humanitarian sector of the church’s multi-faceted fiefdom. I took time to investigate this inspiring enterprise.

One of the most intriguing is the monument of charity he has built in Nigeria and across the world. I watched and I was amazed at the effectiveness of his kingdom: the neon lights, in

thousands and none is faulty; the orderliness of the people; the street lights and the effectiveness of his in-house economy. Our guide revealed storming stories of affection flowing from the church. Perhaps Pastor Joshua was the only African clergy that contributed immensely to the revival of afflicted souls after the earthquake that hit Haiti, killing many, and submerging hundreds of houses including the Presidential palace. The death toll was 230,000. The world held its breath in awe. Two cargo planes were chartered by Pastor Joshua. The planes flew from the United States to Haiti. They landed on a UN airstrip in Cap Haitien, northern Haiti just ten days after the tragic disaster. In history, most blacks in Haiti are originally from West Africa, mainly Nigeria. Nothing could have drawn this nostalgia than the news that a man from Nigeria flew in two cargo of planes filled with relief materials, bringing succor to the afflicted and putting an end to anguish, gnashing of teeth and mourning. Apart, he assembled medical doctors, nurses, engineers, pilots and evangelists spanning three continents to assist Haiti. They took a 10-seater plane from Ft Lauderdale to Cap Haitien. He also set up his team with relief clinic in Arcahaie, a fishing and farming town of roughly 150,000 locals. He had visited Surabaya in Indonesia where he addressed hundreds of poor people. He fed them and doled

out hot meals of Kentucky Fried Chicken and money to them. He also gave 10,000 dollars to the Hana Ananda centre where the poor and the vulnerable shelter. He visited the poor in Colorado, US and fed thousands of people. He had discovered the homeless camp at the banks of the Colorado river with the welcoming inscription: “Cold, Hungry and Homeless, Anything helps.” From the account given to me, the charity covers

about 50 countries and over 10 million families around the world. For the communities in the US, he was the first person in the world to have spent such a huge amount on the poor community in a country rated as one of the world’s richest.

A Muslim P.h.d student from Asia who was on a research visit to the center told me her findings indicated that Pastor Joshua provides for the needs of an average of 1 million people daily all over the world. “I’m here as a Ph.d student. I’m doing a research on modern religion and poverty alleviation. My findings indicate that Mr Joshua runs the biggest and most selfless charity in the. world,” he told me. I saw the physically challenged. I saw the blind. I saw widows. I saw thousands of students, Muslims, Christians and freethinkers alike going home with goodies on their shoulders. I saw armed and defenseless people alike, I saw the have-nots in thousands, during the new year festivity.

One of the most interesting aspects is his programme aimed at reviving armed robbers, commercial sex workers and the dregs in the society. “I was a hardened criminal. I used to kill. In fact, I came to this church, I was revived through preaching. I was given money to go and start a new life. I’m now a business man and will never go back to criminal activities again. I have been doing my business now for 10 years”, Andero, from Oyo state told me. Marvis, a former informant to armed robbers, one of which was his boyfriend, after a period of reformation; she was given 200,000 to start a new life with her husband, who was also rehabilitated.

“I have a list of 300 armed robbers rehabilitated this year alone,’ the Asian student told me, adding that she had verified all of them, including checking out with the police and discovered that it was real. There was a particular armed robber who attended the church with a gun in his pocket. He became one of the people to be rehabilitated in an extensive programme that has psycho-counselors on board. The numbers of beneficiaries in the education sector who obtain scholarship is countless, spreading across all the states of the federation and running through all ethnic groups without discrimination. I met many of his care givers, whose responsibility is to move from one home to the other, attending to the elderly and the sick, giving to them medicine and food. His community development programme is unparalleled. He runs a football club referred to as My People Football Club where hundreds of talents are frequently discovered. This is apart from a tourist haven that has been built at the church’s starting point, located in a swamp which has now been turned into a global magnet, drawing an average of 2 million people to Nigeria yearly. I now recollect. On my visit to Costa Rica, I was at first perturbed by the gale of revolting stories of drug, violence and corruption pinned on Nigeria by many. I had a similar experience during my visit to many countries including Thailand and Paragua and the United States. My consolation only came from the other side of the story when many who had visited the Synagogue Church began to talk about Nigerian in glowing terms.

Though the Church seems to have brought grandeur and honour to Nigeria, the country does not seem to appreciate this. One source told me that during Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s reign, instructions were given to TV stations to block out Pastor Joshua’s programmes prompting him

to start the Emmanuel TV that now features in several countries all over the world. Yet, the roads leading to this great enterprise that has drawn global attention remain an eyesore. The government has definitely failed in seeing the golden offer of uplifting a crestfallen nation offered through the demagogue of the Synagogue spirituality and political economy. For me, from the economic and cultural perspective, let us even leave out spirituality, the Synagogue Church has become a fortune of tourism, perhaps with no equal in Nigeria. It has become one of the few iconic comets that brightens Nigeria’s darkening

images. Unfortunately, there seems no institutional backing. I ask myself, if millions of Nigerians can go to Mecca and Jerusalem, with keen government interests on the visitors given the great impact on the local economy, why can’t the various governments of Nigeria tap from the Synagogue metaphor and thrill?

T.B Joshua shares secrets of his good health

Dear Editor,

On Sunday 4th January 2015, Prophet T.B. Joshua revealed to his congregation at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos the secret behind his good health – lots of water!

“Blessing without good health is a crisis because you cannot enjoy it,” Joshua began in his message televised live on Christian network Emmanuel TV.

He explained that he had received numerous emails questioning how he was able to sustain his good health over the years as he had never been seen absent during a church service, neither had there been reports of his travelling abroad for medical treatment.

“We are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body,” the cleric informed his listeners, referring them to the Scriptures in 1 Thessalonians 5:22-23. “The same body can get sick or tired and needs attention.”

He further clarified, “The natural and the spiritual must function together. For the natural to function, you must take care of the body.”

Joshua went on to reveal a habit he says he has cultivated over the course of many years. “Before my morning prayer or immediately after my morning prayer – I am talking of 4am, 5am or 6am in the morning – I will take a 150cl bottle of water, pour it into a cup and in under two to three minutes, I make sure that I finish it.”

According to him, the secret behind this is not to drink when feeling thirsty, as most would do today. “I am not drinking it because I am thirsty. I am drinking it for a purpose – to flush my system,” he admonished the crowd.

The pastor added that people should take another smaller 75cl bottle of water between 2-3pm and another one around 5-6pm. “This should replace all sugary drinks and tea if you want to have a good life,” he advised.

He also clarified that the water should be room-temperature, not icy or cold, further explaining that tap water could as well be used if people did not have sufficient resources to purchase bottled water.

Joshua stated the benefits of this habit were multiple although it would be difficult to cultivate at the beginning. He claimed such regular intake of water would moderate eating habits, foster growth of natural hair and purify the skin.

“God has given us everything we need to live a good life but we are ignorant,” he concluded, stressing that people would share testimonies in their health if they followed this advice.

Anti TB Joshua Bloggers Admit His Anointing Water Works – What a Shame!

Whatever bearing one has taken on the credibility of TB Joshua, the renowned pastor of The Synagogue Church of All Nation’s in Lagos, Nigeria – one fact remains

TB Joshua

TB Joshua

indisputable, his is an incredible journey surrounded in mystery and being written in history. Joshua is easily the most vilified pastor in Africa, yet by far the most sought after. He is the hope of multitudes and yet the headache of religious bodies and group of bloggers who have vehemently disowned him but can’t seem to ignore him. It is a living drama being watched world over, as time’s steady course continues its revealing discourse on truth and authenticity. But what is it about TB Joshua that has actually engendered such absolute denunciation and renunciation by his fellow labourers in the vineyard?

With the recent event that took place at TB Joshua, Church, the Synagogue of all nations in Ghana, many online news sites and bloggers have become judges using some words against the ministry of Prophet TB Joshua . The same people who said TB Joshua Anointing Water is NONSENSE. Today one of such bloggers are asking “What about all the people the Anointing Water of TB Joshua Anointing Water worked for”?

This simply confirms that they know that the Anointing has worked for many. Surely if they really want to know if work they should take a look at the video Click Here

The Fugitive Nii Ayiku Amartey Has been Exposed Over TB Joshua

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

Edmund Nii Ayiku Amartey – The Fugitive

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:
