BEWARE!!! DARKNESS LOOMS ON EARTH

Darkness Taking over the Earth

Darkness over the Face of the Earth

Take Heed the Pure in Spirit!!! Darkness is on the face of the earth, evil is everywhere around us, demons are moving freely in the Streets seeking for those to afflict and possess. Be overwhelmed not by the riches and glories in the world, for it is delusional and sheer vanity. The occultic world is true; its members are out there, amongst the sons of men, promoting the enterprise of darkness against the Purest Light of Truth, Holiness and Righteousness. Is it the so called Illuminati or Freemasons, Ogboni or other evil cults that mostly operate from the underworld? These groups remain the greatest threat to God’s creations and every living soul on earth need to be mindful of this disastrous threat to humanity.

Be confined not by popular traditions and beliefs, for this exposure may sound ridiculous to some, know this! Our individual beliefs or popular opinions changes not that which is the truth. Only pray to be guided by a Pure Spirit – The Spirit of Truth and Discernment. For the scripture said, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” – Ecclesiastes 1:9. Dark powers, sorcery, black magic, occultic and satanic kingdoms had been in existence as old as the earth. Modern Civilisation never stopped them, the instruments of modernisation (technology) has even helped them to expand their operations and world influence. To the doubting Thomas out there, be informed.

These agents of darkness are using diverse means to control the spiritually dour and the dark lords appointed by Lucifer are using their influence and control over the world’s institutions to fight against those that are carriers of the mark of Grace. The proud lord of darkness (the devil) has not yet revealed himself to the world because he clearly knows that the seeds of mankind hates him, therefore he upholds those in high places under his contractual oath to command his government on humanity.

For the quest for power, desperation for wealth, fame and influence has subjected the earth to the rulership of the proud dark lord; for several world personalities, public figures and leaders are the objects of his influence. The signs are all over and this may not be quite different from what we have heard, but be strong in the Lord; for even with their technological might and worldly influence, they have no power over the children of Light, because spiritually we are far greater than them.

Brethren, we have to always be spiritually alert and be sensitive to the things of the spirit; for the kingdom of darkness is waging strong battles against the kingdom of Light and this spiritual battle against the household of God, is being fought in diverse forts. Always remember to pray for the unity of the Church. And never be tempted to compromise with darkness, for Light and darkness have nothing in common. This is why the forces of darkness are fighting relentlessly to destroy and discredit the ministry of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) of Prophet T.B. Joshua, because the Prophet has chosen to expose and humiliate these agents of darkness for what they represent and has continued to render their enterprise useless against those that have chosen to submit themselves under the authority of God.

To the Children of Light, be troubled not by their threats, for they have no power over the soul, nor be misled by their worldly promises, for its all vanity; given that our heavenly rewards are splendours. For they may have all the natural weapons of sort and the means to inflict pains and death, but relent not and be strong in the Lord, “For the weapons of our warfare are not canal, but they are mighty through God in the pulling down of strong holds.”– 2 Corinthians 10-40.

There are rebels amongst us, never be tempted to give heed to them that have been compromised and are altering the scripture for worldly acceptance and gain. For they slander their fellow Men, promote disunity among the Household of God and reduce the scripture to a mere philosophy of public debate. For it is written, their place would be taken over by another and in times to come, they would be abandoned to perish and bear the shame of their rebellious acts against the household of God.

The Synagogue was attacked and Martyrs were sent to the kingdom of eternal peace, those who have been assigned to uncover it, are under the wrong influence, for evidence no longer makes sense. The media has been compromised to spread that which they want the public to hear. For the proud lord of darkness, who with his instruments of influence has taken over the independent minds of the people and spiritually blindfolded them to see the great injuries the occult world has done to the brethren that are carriers of the Light of Grace.

Nicholas Ibekwe the confirmed Face of the dark gang

Nicholas Ibekwe the confirmed Face of the dark gang

For many agents of the likes of Nicholas Ibekwe (The confirmed Face of the dark gang- take a closer look of the Skull and Bones in his T-shirt) are alive in the media waiting to spread lies, divert attention, cook unfounded allegations and spread sentiments, connived to glorify the judgment by their own, mandated by their dark lords to condemn the victims of oppression because they were favoured by the Most High God to stand shoulder high above the kingdom of darkness and rendered their evil venture useless. Alas! The innocent would surfer, bleed in pains, live in the misery of their agony and be confined in prison cell, but take note, they cannot be destroyed for this is not unto death, but a living testament to the present and coming generational Churches that the Scripture is alive forever and ever Amen!

Many today wish they could join the so called Illuminati or any powerful occultic group, believing it would fetch them more fame and influence. The truth is that, the devil cannot make one great. For those great stars and the talented out there; were none of the devil’s making. The devil only use his instrument of influence to promote them that are under his contractual oath to the world as bait, but in reality these stars were already destined by God to be great; for right from their mother’s womb, they were marked for greatness. Therefore, despise not the gifted and the stars among them, for many were by ignorant and lack of insecurity fell as a prey for the devil, but pray they discover in soonest, their real purpose on earth; for many were destined to raise the dead, heal the sick and bring hope to the hopeless with their songs and gifts, but were misled by the crafty Lucifer, to use their gifts for the wrong purpose.

The devil knew he cannot endow anyone with a bright star; hence, he uses deceptive strategies and afflictions to trouble those with the promised mark among us, for he knows them great right from their birth. Therefore he causes them to go through challenges, disappointments and all manner of sad events, in other to lure these stars to his kingdom. So he can use their God’s given talents, to promote his evil mission here on earth. When they are initiated into these occultic kingdoms in the cause of attracting riches and fame, they are meant to think their sorrow is over and there is no cause for regret, quite unknown to them that spiritually, they have sold their souls to the devil and that those dark lords who initiated them into the occult, were actually the unseen hands behind those sadness and limitations that made them seems frustrated and been attracted prior to when they were won or deceived into the dark kingdom.

To the Pure in heart…, be deceived not! Their greatness has nothing to do with the contractual oath they took or the initiation and the rituals. The oath is to effect loyalty; the initiation is for darkness (demons or evil spirits) to have easy access to their spirit man and while the rituals are done regularly to renew their commitment to the cause of darkness and all these qualifies their membership. For if they had allow themselves to be guided by the True Spirit of Predestination and were patient enough not to join any occult like group, their destiny would still have been manifested here on earth, but with a consistent opposition from the dark kingdoms, just as they are against the SCOAN and the Prophet. Therefore, the great stars that fell for their bait is due to sheer ignorant and insecurity, for they were already predestined for greatness right from their mother’s womb.

Be careful with some activities that goes on in the internet, the occult worlds are using this means to confine and control the minds and senses of the people that, they can’t reason outside the box. Likewise, be careful with some kind of popular songs, their lyrics and sounds are inspired from the pit of hell, designed to influence darkness in us and make us crave for fleshly desires (iniquities and immoralities). Hence, abhorring and losing interest in those things that edifies our relationship with God. Indulge in listening to awesome inspirational songs that inspire the soul positively and help us build a strong relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Be wise as serpent (Mathew 10-16) and be independent minded (Romans 12:2), avoid those workers of iniquities out there and never fall for their charming and deceitful lips. For by their gifts and talents they write interesting sentences and phrases in the pages of news paper and online media platform to bring confusion and unnecessary argument among brethren. For they slander Men of God and want us to believe our Christian Faith is the world problem. They are good in fabricating malicious lies and use derogatory statement against the Household of God. They come out-loud to ridicule men of God and fellow ministerial brethren who are face with misfortunes. They want the people out there to believe the healing power of God through Men of God are not genuine and the deliverance they claimed are stage-managed.

They are quick to say – “We are in a civilised world…! We don’t need all these religious barbarism that take us to the Stone Age…! The Church is the reason Africa is underdeveloped…! Religion is the world problem…and blabs!” Be move not by their shallow talks, for it’s as a result of their confined brainwashed and the wrong influence they are under; for they lack understanding of spiritual things.

Has the so called modernity or civilisation bring to stop the spread of evil, wickedness, hate and malice? Did the Holy Bible tell us modern civilisation will stop the government of darkness, end deliverance and the healing power of God? For there had been and would always be, a constant battle between the kingdom of Light and darkness, for darkness leads to destruction while, light lead us to redemption. Let us embrace this Light of Truth before us, for there to be an opening of our eyes to see where the world is heading towards…READ MORE

BUILDING COLLAPSE: The Government and Judiciary Playing to the Gallery?

T.B. Joshua the world must persecuted living God's General

T.B. Joshua the world must persecuted living God’s General

Many give much attention to persons who do nothing meaningful, than investing their time and energy in accusing and condemning others because we live in a world where hate has taking over sound reasoning, where opinions are cheap, and where good sense is trampled upon. We celebrate the intended foolishness the irrational bring to the public domain when they attempt to rationalize an otherwise clear case of sabotage, impunity, injustice and the infringement on others freedom of worship and expression.

Some critics will say, “Justice for all” is when T.B. Joshua is arrested or when he is forced to come to court, but same will never explain why the government seems not to care or is hiding the identity of the Pilot and Crew on board in the Military Airplane from the public, that remains the major suspect in the SCOAN guest house collapse. This case should be properly pondered upon and critically tackled before we can really know how sincere the so called “justice for all” is.

It cannot just be concluded by those in authorities that it is impossible for the guest house to be brought down by an infrasonic weapon, when no appropriate investigation has been done or tendered forward to prove otherwise. Remember that in the scene of crime everyone is a suspect, including the unimaginable. The recent terrorist attack in Brussels can attest to that; the world can see how the national security of that Nation are so proactive, using CCTV footage to trace and track-down major suspects behind the terrorist attack.

The Nigerian government should support the nation’s security agent, who from the onset of the incident perceived sabotage and should not be playing to the gallery to the Anti-SCOAN sentimentalist who are hell-bent on seeing the SCOAN’s downfall.

As an opinionist would say, “An enemy has been caught; this is the right time to punish him”…..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

REPOST: ALL MATERIALS USED IN COLLAPSED SYNAGOGUE BUILDING WERE APPROVED – SON

According to the representative of the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) in the coronal court, all materials used in the construction of the collapsed SCOAN guest house were of high standard in his report, the SON representative stated, “I am surprised at the rate and speed the building collapsed. It’s quite unusual and I believe it should be investigated”- SON. this he said in high suspicion of the rate of speed and manner the SCOAN guest collapsed, which is synonymous with controlled demolition thus calling for a proper investigation to be done in ascertaining the real cause of the collapsed building.

What is keeping the Nigeria government from exposing the identity of the pilot and the crew on board the military airplane that remain the major suspect in the collapsed SCOAN guest house saga. Why are they not talking about the main threat and suspect, the military airplane? why are they cunningly trying to compare the SCOAN building collapse to other Lagos building Collapse when they have not yet answer the main question, the military airplane!!!!…

At the Friday November 21, 2014 sitting of the coroner’s inquest into the collapsed Synagogue, Church Of All Nations building, the court was told that the building materials used for the construction of the collapsed building were approved by the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON).

This submission was made by the Director in charge of Inspectorate and Compliance at SON, Engineer Bede Obayi. According to him, iron rod samples taken for test at different laboratories showed that they were good and met the standard requirement. He raised reservations over the standard of the concrete debris, stating that the sample they took was slightly below the required density. However, he posited that the result could have been influenced by the pressure factor of the collapsed building, which makes it indeterminate in concluding if this contributed to the collapse.

Engineer Obayi also expressed surprise about the speed at which the building collapsed, fuelling speculations that the controlled demolition theory was indeed plausible. “Candidly, I am surprised at the rate and speed the building collapsed. It’s quite unusual and I believe it should be investigated. I also admit that the result of the test conducted on the debris is suspect. Due to the technicality involved, our investigation is inconclusive. I was not involved in the observation neither did I participate in the conduct of the test. I don’t even know any of the people saddled with the responsibility of conducting the test. We went for test in three labs and the final reports indicated that most of the materials used in the Synagogue building met our standard requirements. All the sources used were also approved SON sources.”

Meanwhile, members of the public and other interested parties attending the hearing have voiced out their reservations about the biased manner in which the magistrate seems to be handling proceedings at the inquest. Some of them who spoke to the media on conditions of anonymity complained of the magistrate’s partial disposition. They observed that he was always visibly harsh on witnesses who gave evidence which seemed to support the controlled demolition theory. Others said his disposition was suggestive of a calculated attempt by the state to persecute a particular party, stressing that the inquest has lost its integrity

In another development, counsel to The SCOAN, Olalekan Ojo has filed an application challenging the jurisdiction of the magistrate for encroaching on matters beyond the scope of the inquest by inviting Prophet T.B. Joshua, who was not a witness to the incident. He said the primary scope of the inquest was to determine the cause of death and not pry into private matters that bear no consequence on it.

On his part, the magistrate, Oyetade Komolafe grudgingly granted the request of the counsel saying, “I am not against Prophet T.B. Joshua and Lagos State is not against him. I will respect the law and await the report or verdict of the High Court. Therefore, I will hands off the issue of inviting him as a witness for now till the outcome from the High Court.”

However, he held up the letter submitted to the High Court challenging his jurisdiction and candidly stated, “I can tell you that this letter will not get to anywhere. I count it dead already; it is not an issue.” The statement added credence to concerns voiced about his prejudicial handling of the inquest.

The hearing was adjourned to December 3, 2014.

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.

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

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. READ MORE

Just/ Unjust: Is the SCOAN Building Verdict really Legitimate?

TB-Joshua-Synagogue-Church

Prophet T.B. Joshua

It calls for alarm how disturbing legitimacy is becoming slowly ruled out in cases that are legally constituted. Legitimacy as we all know is an acceptable standard that is socially, morally and ethically held in high esteem; it is what the people accept as reasonable and in other views, legitimacy means citizens full support or recognition of a government. In a democratic setting, a law can be said to be legitimate if it has an overwhelming support from majority of the people that are directly affected by that law. However, that has not been in the case of the SCOAN building collapse, for it may interest us to know that until date, the SCOAN building collapse case has not been given a legitimate view despite the fact on ground and plead by the people.

It is well known that since the collapsed SCOAN guest house issue has been lingering, the verdicts that have so far been given by the authority have not been in SCOAN’s favor. In all of these, the ministry of SCOAN and some independent professional investigators have insisted that the authority should not hold on to their one-sided view on what they think is behind the cause of the collapse guest house, but should equally consider these facts that are on ground. If indeed the authority is searching for the truth, why would the government that is recognized as a powerful institution not concern themselves with these acute evidences?

For all these aforementioned evidences tendered and the suspicions generated due to the way and manner the building collapsed, it brings about the question; how legitimate is the hasty verdict of the Lagos State government and its coronal inquest? If the authority continues to ignore these sensitive evidences, what then is the essence of legitimacy in our social structure? For It is no news how majority of the bereaved families affected by the incident are insisting that the facts which the ministry of SCOAN and other experts have brought out should be adequately considered by the government but they have paid deaf ears to this.

The fact is that if the authorities continue to ignore these disturbing evidences/reports from the SCOAN and other independent professionals, the people will never take the government seriously. This is one of the reasons why no matter the level of indictment placed on SCOAN by the authorities, it will not affect T.B. Joshua’s reputation in the eyes of the world; for the Ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua will continue to grow from ‘height to height’. The verdict from the coronal inquest will remain illegitimate and can’t be taken seriously by well-minded people until the government answers these heart-provoking questions. For if the authority continues to act on such one-sided verdict it will continue to be seen as persecution or witch-hunt and not justice. How can a ministry which has contributed tremendously to the Nigerian economy, boost her international image and help many of her citizens not be granted a chance of freedom/ fair hearing by the nation’s authority? Well, the freedom of man is from God.

If the authority claims to be fair and just, let us be reminded of the DANA and SOSOLISO air crash. Is it still heard till date? Was it continuously hampered on? Where are the human rights activists who claimed to fight for the rights of the bereaved? Why have they not called the government to order after they had dubiously ‘swept these cases under the carpet’? Why the consistent lingering of the Synagogue case, if there is no ulterior motive? If not, in fair cases both parties are heard and evidence provided are intelligently scrutinized and investigated in order to give a fair and legit statement which will have no traces of bias. As Christians, we know we are in the world but not part of it, everything we do as Christians will always irritate the world, know this! “A friend of God is an enemy of the world” this clearly shows and proves that God is with Prophet T.B. Joshua in his mature disposition of his actions, silence and behavior towards the bias, criticism, unjust and abusive language of the authorities.

Isn’t it obvious that the ministry in question keeps growing from strength to strength and the world acceptance keeps increasing? The Prophet is still accepted in other countries even when the government verdict has not been in his ministry’s favor. The clamor of other nations still lingers, calling on Prophet T.B. Joshua to hold a crusade and possibly establish a branch of his ministry in their nations. If I may recount, the Sunday before the 31st night 2015, T.B. Joshua sent an evangelist to read his message to the congregation appealing to brethren all over the world not to come around during the 31st night that they should all stay in their various homes/countries and watch Emmanuel TV. This shows the rate, esteem and value that people still have for this man of God and this exposes that the verdict of the government might be LEGAL BUT NOT LEGITIMATE (that is, it lacks the acceptable social, moral and ethical standard by well-minded people) I bet, if T.B Joshua is imprisoned innocently today, that will not stop people all over the world from accessing his ministry like the case of Jesus Christ which was even worse, yet He is worshipped, honored and even regarded as the savior of the world till date.

It is true that the coronal inquest was set up by a legally recognized body but their verdict is still illegitimate. The world is not ignorant of the fact that wicked people can use the instrument of the state to perpetrate injustice. Why can’t our government come to the realization that they are there to serve the people? So how on earth will the judgment by the authority against the SCOAN ministry hold water when they have not done what is legitimate (carrying out a proper investigation on the evidence provided)? Let’s ask ourselves; why do enlightened minds of various strata still come from far and wide down to Nigeria to attend the SCOAN Sunday service? Do we think people of the world are so dull that they cannot detect a gimmick from a man who we claim is not learned? It is no news that the incident was tragic but notwithstanding, it never came between TB Joshua and God.

I leave you with these and let God be the judge of all matters here on earth and in heaven.

Prophet T. B Joshua proposed to me first day we met –Evelyn

Mrs. Evelyn Joshua

Mrs. Evelyn Joshua

Prophet T.B Joshua’s wife, Evelyn, wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s happy her children are doing quite well and their father “is a great man”. They’ve been together for 25 blissful years. Lately, she celebrated her 47th birthday which she said was fun. In this interview with Sunday Sun, she reflects on her life with the man of God and con­cluded it’s been worth it and gives Almighty God the glory. Excerpts:

How are you today?

I’m fine…

I can see that you are happy and excited that your daughter, Sarah, was called to the bar today. But in a nutshell, just express your feelings.

I am very happy; it’s the desire of many parents to see their children succeed. I am happy she’s taking this step; she’s work­ing hard towards her destiny, so it’s a great day for me and for her too.

Okay, do you know so many people don’t know that Prophet T.B Joshua has a wife let alone children? So, can you talk about the family?

At least you know now (laughs). I have heard that story before. Yes, I have heard that in the past but emm… it’s just one of those things. I don’t need to tell you but I think we have been together for the past 25 years now.

Please, tell us how you met.

Yes, I have said it before and it’s still the same. Hmmm… how do I call it? It’s just a divine arrangement. It’s a long story but anyway we met and the only surprising thing there was that, it was the day I met him that he proposed to me.

Wow, really? On his knees? How did he do it?

Straight forward (Laughs).

He said ‘I like you. I want to marry you’ just like that?

Yes, but really I was skeptical because it was strange, so, I just want to thank God that it really worked out. Like I said earlier, we have been together for the past 25 years and it’s working out fine.

Most people believe that pastors are not romantic. They fast and pray all the time. Is Prophet T. B Joshua romantic?

He’s a great man.

Great man on bed?

Hmmm… I don’t know. I wouldn’t know because no woman would love to discuss her husband to that level, but I think he’s a good man.

Okay, since you got married to him, what is it that you have learnt from him?

I have learnt a lot from him being a disciplined man. But I’m still learning anyway.

Having this type of cross-cultural marriage because I learnt you are from Delta State and he is from Ondo State, how did it happen? Did you have challenges?

In every marriage, there are always challenges. I don’t even see that as a problem because we are both Nigeri­ans. Even when you marry from your tribe, even your hometown there will still be problems. But you know, with maturity and fear of God, you can go on.

Did your parents object to the union initially?

In every marriage you should expect that. That’s what keeps the marriage going. When you remember all the obstacles, you will want to make the marriage work. Honestly, you will want to do all you could to make it work. When you take a man or woman to your father’s house, you don’t expect every­body to welcome the person, but when you think of those people that say no, you will surely want to make it work.

When you were getting mar­ried, was he deep in religion like now?

Yes, I met him as a prophet. I told you I don’t want to go into details but I actu­ally went to his place.

Okay, when you are angry, how does he calm you down? Does he buy you some nice gifts like jewelry?

I don’t know what you mean by angry.

That moment of tension, you know, like when church members are taking too much of his attention?

In fact, that is the first thing you have to understand. When you are married to a man of God, you have to know he’s a man of the people. So, that should be the basic thing you have to understand as wife of a prophet. There’s nothing like church members taking too much of his time, he has to do his work. I have never been angry about it and I can never be angry about it.

What of the other way round?

Which way?

When he’s angry, how do you calm him down?

When he’s angry? (Laughs). There’s no man who doesn’t get angry but he shouldn’t allow his anger to lead him into sin, you understand? When it comes to expressing it, do so and let it end there, so that is it.

Some people don’t under­stand your husband, they say he’s a mysterious man with mysterious powers, when you read such stories, how do you react?

I know it’s not true. They don’t know him, he’s not a strange man, he’s not a mysterious man; he’s just dedicated to his work. He is a man who has the fear of God in him, that is it. Those stories don’t move me at all because they don’t seem to understand him.

So, what is that precious gift that he has ever given you, probably on your birth­day?

Not even a gift per se, but words of wisdom, and I think that is all what life is all about. You find it, ignite it and use it. That is what your heart desires.

Some people say his favour­ite food is pounded yam, is that true?

No! (Laughs). Should I tell you? Em­mmm… I know he likes beans and corn, you know, the beans cooked together with corn, you know that? He can take that at least twice a week. Yoruba call it “Adalu”.

When he wants to go for solid food, which one does he prefer?

Yes, swallow or whatever? He takes that too but beans and corn are his favourites.

Mama, do you feel fulfilled marrying a prophet and hav­ing three beautiful, intelli­gent children, all girls?

Yes, I feel fulfilled. I don’t even know I don’t have any son because I have lots of boys around me. In this part of the world, most especially, from where I am from, people cherish male children, but my husband didn’t give me any reason to think of that.

You mean you are not under pressure from him or his fam­ily to have male children?

Not at all! I believe when you make that a problem, you begin to see it as a problem before you. But it’s not a prob­lem to me at all.

Could you please tell us the secret behind your youthful­ness, nobody will believe you have these grown-ups?

Really? You know the good thing? I will be 47 tomorrow (Thursday Decem­ber 17).

Wow! Happy birthday in advance!

Thank you.

So, how are we celebrating it?

We are already celebrating.

How would you describe style, what is style to you?

Style is just for the one who fears God. That’s the way I see style.

I can see you donning some nice jewelry. Are you a jew­elry freak?

Not really. You know, when time permits, I can just have them.

Are you comfortable in lo­cal or designer wears?

I just go with things I’m comfortable with. I don’t look for designers every­where; I wear anything I’m comfortable with.
