Death In The House: Michael Jackson's Brother Runs to TB Joshua

The Weekly Spectator of Nigeria carried the remarkable story of Marlon Jackson’s visit to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations on it’s cover page. It is a compelling read, documenting both TB Joshua’s prophecy concerning the late King of Pop and Marlon’s subsequent visit, alongside an exclusive interview with Tee-Mac Iseli. Written by the CNN African Journalist of the Year in 2006, Shola Oshunkeye, enjoy…

For a long time to come, Prophet T.B. Joshua and his church, The Synagogue Church of Nations, will continue to make headlines, for good or for ill. The church made another epoch, last Sunday, when it held, what may enter the Guinness Book Of Records, as the longest singular service ever in the history of contemporary Christianity and Christendom. The service, which featured soul-stirring music by the church’s mass choir, healing and prophetic sessions and Word ministration, lasted for 13 hours! Did you say ‘oops’?

Well, you ‘aint’ seen anything as the Americans would say. The parishioners participated joyously in every minute, every activity of the extremely long service without showing any visible sign of boredom or tiredness! But unknown to the thousands of exultant parishioners, Marlon, the late Michael Jackson’ immediate elder brother, was in the house. He was accompanied by TEE MAC Omatshola Iseli, Nigeria’s world renowned flutist, president of Allied Minerals, and Marlon’s business associate; two black Mayors, and some associates. Marlon, who has been a regular visitor to Nigeria since the beginning of this year, had arrived Nigeria, upper week, in furtherance of the mega billion dollar tourism empire that he, TEE MAC, and their business associates in America, are going to build in Badagry. But he took time off to consult with Prophet T.B. Joshua, who had foretold the tragic end of his superstar younger brother.

Joshua, had, on Sunday, January 4, this year, told his congregation to pray for “a great star who would go on a journey of no return.” Here are the exact words he used in delivering the prophetic message: “Fast and pray. Use Psalm 91 and take note of verse 7,8,9. Pray. I’m seeing a great star whom the world [is] shouting, ‘Hey, hey, hey!’ In his own area, he’s famous, he’s known everywhere. Great, too great. Because I see something will begin to happen to that star and that may likely end in him to pack his load and go to the journey of no return. But I don’t know when that journey [is].”

A month later, precisely on Sunday, February 22, 2009, he repeated his call for intercessory prayer for the “great star” who was now “between life and death.” His words again: “Last time, there was a message given concerning somebody who’s between life and death. Not in your community here and I said we should pray. I want you to raise up your voice. If it is the will of God, there’s nothing we can do about it. But raise up your voice…, pray for this person. When it happens, you know something happens. He’s too young to leave your midst.”

The man in The Synagogue did not stop there. He invited TEE MAC to a private meeting and urged him to tell Marlon about the scary revelation about Michael Jackson, and the urgent need for the superstar to rush to Lagos for healing and deliverance. That was on June 12, 2009, the prophet’s birthday. “I was very worried about the prediction by the man of God, having followed his past predictions, which came to pass with amazing accuracy,” says TEE MAC in an interview with The Spectator on Wednesday. “So, I called Marlon immediately and told him what the man of God had seen and said. Marlon said Michael was very busy rehearsing at the moment, and that going by what he knew, Michael was okay health-wise.” Sadly, the King of Pop slumped and died in his sprawling mansion in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 25.

Contrary to the expectations of the few people that were privy to Marlon’s visit to The Synagogue, he met Joshua, in a private suite at the church shortly on arrival at about 3.30p.m. Both men later came down together and Joshua began the healing session at the church’s ante area. For close to one hour, Marlon sat, arms folded across his chest, transfixed, watching astounding miracles unfurl before his very eyes. At a point, he seemed so totally lost a white lady had to be explaining certain things to him and he continually nodded or smiled his appreciation. At another point, he gasped in awe as a Cameroonian lady, a self-confessed ‘queen of the coast’ charged at Joshua a few times as the prophet exorcised the evil spirit from her.

Finally, the healing session ended at about 5 p.m. And Prophet Joshua returned to the sanctuary to resume the service. But Marlon, TEE MAC, the Mayors and their associates did not enter with the pastor. To the disappointment of some of the worshippers who later learnt that Marlon was in the house and had been waiting anxiously for that moment when the prophet would introduce him to the congregation, and pray for him as he would do to the scores of foreign dignitaries that regularly throng the place, they left.

TEE MAC was to later inform this correspondent that their late arrival from Benin that Sunday caused the alteration in the programme. They were billed to arrive in the church at 9.00 a.m. and start the first service with the congregation, but they missed their flight in Benin, and they had to wait till afternoon for the second and final flight from Benin to Lagos that day. They were dead tired by the time they got to Lagos, and the church, which, perhaps, necessitated the private ministration and audience Joshua granted Marlon.

However, there were indications, at press time, that Marlon would “worship fully and openly at The Synagogue whenever he returns to the country. “And that will be very soon,” one of the evangelists confirmed to us.
Although those in the know were upbeat about the music star-turned-businessman’s visit to the church, it was nothing extraordinary to the man in The Synagogue. Rather, it seemed routine. “I thank God for the life of Marlon and his relationship with God, which, of course made him to decide to visit our little corner in Lagos,” he says humbly. “Although I’m happy he came, like I’m happy the lowest person in the congregation came, only God can claim the glory. No man can share God’s glory with Him.”

Even though Joshua is renowned for miracles, his prophetic ministry has revved several notches up in recent years with his accurate predictions on some world events. Among the events that he predicted with uncanny accuracy are the death of the former South Korean president, the February 13, 2009 plane crash in New York and the release of Ingrid Betancourt from the Colombian jungle last year. “His ministry is attracting a growing fanatical following, particularly across Africa, and many African leaders such as John Evans Atta Mills of Ghana regularly frequent his church for spiritual support and guidance,” informs a regular worshipper in the church.

Meanwhile, Michael Jackson continues to make wave in death as much as he made while alive. Investigations into his death are causing as much stir as the various controversies that dogged much of his adult life. “Since his death on June 25,” writes Google news, “MJ’s unofficial autopsy has been leaked, his children’s custody has been under scrutiny, people with secret stashes of his money have come forward, a supposed love-child has emerged from Norway, and his prosthetic nose is missing. Seems like even in death the guy won’t escape rumours, controversy, and ridicule.”

Michael Jackson - causing contraversy even in death

The Associated Press, AP, reported Wednesday that Dr. Conrad Murray, the superstar’s personal doctor, has admitted to police that he actually “gave Michael shots of propofol. Propofol is believed to be the killing agent behind Jackson’s death and is a sedative given intravenously in hospitals to knock patients out for surgery — only Murray was using it to help Jackson sleep.” With investigators narrowing their scrutiny to Murray, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) spent hours at the doctor’s house and clinic in Las Vegas; and evidence gathered so far may lead them charging him for manslaughter.

INTERVIEW – Michael Jackson could have lived if he had seen T.B. Joshua -TEE MAC

TEE MAC Omatshola Iseli, Nigeria’ s internationally acclaimed flutist, and president of Allied Minerals, a mining company, is a long time family friend of the legendary Jackson family. He is also a personal friend and business associate of Marlon Jackson, the immediate elder brother of Michael Jackson, the iconic King of Pop who died suddenly on June 25, 2009. In this interview, TEE MAC confirmed that Prophet T.B. Joshua consulted and implored him to pressurise the Jackson Family, especially Marlon, to persuade the superstar to come to his church at Ikotun, Lagos for healing. Michael never got the message because he was immersed in rehearsals for his 50 ‘This Is It’ residency gigs at the O2 Arena in London. TEE MAC believes that Michael would have lived had he made the trip.
Excerpts from the interview:

Tee Mac - TB Joshua warned him of Jackson's demise

Tee Mac - TB Joshua warned him of Jackson's demise

Spectator: How did you get to know about Pastor T.B. Joshua’s prophecy concerning Michael Jackson’s unfortunate demise?
Tee Mac: On June 12, this year, I went to the birthday party of Prophet T.B. Joshua and he sent somebody to call me upstairs to talk. He told me that Michael Jackson was very sick and needed healing and deliverance. He stated that I should tell Marlon (Jackson, the late legend’s immediate elder brother) immediately to bring Michael to Nigeria, specifically to The Synagogue. He said Michael was in great danger and needed urgent divine help.

Spectator: How did you react? Did you tell Marlon and what was his reaction? And Michael’s, too, if they ever told him about T.B. Joshua.
Tee-Mac: I was very worried about the prediction by the man of God, having followed his past predictions, which came to pass with amazing accuracy. So, I called Marlon immediately and told him what the man of God had seen and said. Marlon said Michael was very busy rehearsing at the moment, and that going by what he knew, Michael was okay health-wise. It is regrettable that Michael never made the trip to Nigeria. It is lamentable that he died the way he did.

Spectator: Do you really believe that if Michael had made it to Prophet Joshua, he would have lived?
Tee-Mac: With what I have seen over the years at The Synagogue, I believe that Prophet T.B. Joshua could have done what he always does: heal Michael.

Marlon Jackson - in his younger days...

Marlon Jackson - in his younger days...

Spectator: Are you a member of the church? If yes, how long have you been? And what took you there?
Tee-Mac: I am a close friend of the Man of God. I am not actually a member of The Synagogue but I have always admired the Man of God for the help he renders to everybody without asking for anything in return. He has helped so many musicians we sent to him; and I think we should all rally around him and make a statement to the world that those who talk bad about him don’t even know him.

Spectator: Can you tell us a few of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prophesy that awed you and reinforced your belief in his ministry?
Tee-Mac: When Chief Abiola asked him if he would win the disputed June 12, 1993 presidential election, Prophet T.B. Joshua stated yes, but you will not become the President of Nigeria, and there are other predictions that he made that have come to pass with astonishing accuracy. Let me stop at the Abiola example for now.

Spectator: TEE MAC has never been known to be a religious person. How did you become a Christian and a worshipper at The Synagogue?
Tee-Mac: You are very wrong there. Shola, contrary to your belief about me, I am a very religious person having studied religious philosophy my whole life. I respect every religion and enjoy worshiping with serious people because every religion has some truth.

Spectator: Finally, how do you react to the plethora of bad publicity T.B. Joshua keeps getting despite the enormous work he is doing in the lives of people all over the world?
Tee-Mac: I am going through the same thing with PMAN (Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria). There are journalists who don’t verify their stories and they just write anything because somebody has given them money. A lot of people are simply jealous about the tremendous respect Prophet T.B. Joshua has worldwide. Some of the critics are pastors who have all the grammar in the world but no healing power, who have no power to deliver.

Prophet TB Joshua - The persecution we suffer in the hands of our detractors causes us to be known all over the world

Prophet TB Joshua - The persecution we suffer in the hands of our detractors causes us to be known all over the world

Spectator: Those who criticize him most are failed prophets, did you say?
Tee-Mac: Your words, not mine. But you are right in a way. The most ardent critics of Prophet T.B. Joshua are failed pastors and prophets. They are jealous and think that Prophet T.B. Joshua gets his power from some magical entity or through black magic. Black magic and juju is an illusion of the illiterates and that makes them illiterate too. Last year, over 60,000 people came from all over the world to worship at The Synagogue. That makes The Synagogue the number one tourist place in Nigeria. I have spoken to countless people who came from countless countries and nobody has ever spoken ill about Prophet T. B. Joshua. One of my Indian mining friends had a back problem for over 15 years and when the Man of God touched him during the prayer line, the problem went away. I still receive mails where my friend always sends his regards to the Prophet.

  • Alfred Chileya

    I count myself to be happy and blessed because i have actually seen, witnessed, worshipped as well as being prayed for by a Prophet of GOD in my life time (though on TV). It is a rear privilege or else a miracle in itself because GOD must have allowed me to experience it in the first instance and therefore it goes without saying that GOD knew me and planned my life. I therefore look forward to worshipping GOD at the scoan as GOD wills.
    Please Prophet TB Joshua pray for me,blessing intervention and GOD’s opinion about my past ruined and life full of sin and bad acts of commission. Pray also for Mr. Michael Sata’s safety, health and success in the next elections. I long to see TB Joshual physically one day as GOD wills so that i can shall in prayers and feel his humbleness.

    Prophet TB Joshua, u are a gift to humanity and the whole world at large we love u and may the Almighty Father in heaven bless u abundantly and continue to guide our leaders, especially politicians. The world is awakening to the mighty works of GOD by your humbleness, miracles at your hands, generosity, wisdom and all the u do under the scoan. From prophesies given, healing, deliverance, blessings and most importantly the confessions from born again armed robbers even those that choose to doubt can not sincerely do it. The grace and acts of the Lord there in the scoan and where ever u go, speaks volumes and witnesses to our inner selves. Iam happy i fall in your generation and more especially that u will interven in my desires and prayers as GOD will tell u. I have seen the Word in action at scoan though it is on TV, but it is real,”it fulfills its mission” as your fellow Prophet Isaiah earlier said.”Best wishes. Box20767 KITWE ZAMBIA
