Is TB Joshua a prophet among us?

The head of Foursquare Churches in Zambia, Boniface Mwanza, wrote this intriguing article in the ‘Times of Zambia’ concerning the authenticity of Pastor TB Joshua’s ministry…

THERE has been so much controversy surrounding Nigerian prophet TB Joshua, a man renowned world over yet most vilified for his miracle healing services and predictions. The controversies have been raging ever since TB Joshua’s ministry stormed into the public domain bringing into question the legitimacy of his works. In talking about legitimacy, I am referring to the standards as set forth in the Scriptures, which would help us identify a genuine prophet. Who then is TB Joshua?

T.B. Joshua whose full names are Temitope Balogun Joshua was born on June 12, 1963, in a village called Arigidi, in Ikare Akoko, Ondo State of Nigeria. He is married to Evelyn and has four children. TB Joshua, the founder and pastor of the Synagogue Church of All Nations is said to have sparked controversy starting with his mysterious birth. He allegedly remained in his mother’s womb for 15 months before he was born. He attended primary school at St Steven Anglican school from 1971-1977, but failed to complete one year of secondary school. But as he was growing up, he was known as a “small pastor” because of his love for the Bible and ability to predict things to come in his community. He further gained reputation for spiritual prowess after confronting and disarming a madman who was wielding a machete in the school premises. While in school he was the leader of a scripture union.

When Joshua started the Synagogue Church of All Nations in 1987, he just had a handful of members but since then the church has grown far beyond the shores of Nigeria. More than 15,000 members attend the weekly Sunday service. Numerous videos have been produced documenting the healing of incurable sickness, cancer, paralysis, AIDS, showing people’s conditions before, during and after prayer. Medical doctors have examined the patients before and after and have testified to a supernatural activity beyond medical science. TB Joshua does not even claim to be healer but says, “I am just God’s servant”.

TB Joshua has made phenomenal predictions in full view of a global audience on the satellite Christian Television, Emmanuel TV and all of them have come to pass. He predicted the death of president Levy Mwanawasa a month before it happened, the disastrous cyclone in Myanmar, the attempted assassination of the prime minister of Lesotho Pakalitha Mosisili, resignation of Pakistan president Pervez Musharaf, the comet slam into planet Jupiter which caused quite a fray in the scientific community and more recently the death of American pop star Michael Jackson.

On Michael Jackson’s death, the prophet was seen by a global audience via his television network saying, “I see a star being rushed to the hospital but he wont come back home, the whole world will be shocked. He is a great star in his world”. To add mystery to this prediction, TB Joshua sent a message through the pop star’s associates to let Michael come for prayer and deliverance in Nigeria. The associates thought the message a bit misplaced, because Michael was declared medically fit by his doctors and he was billed for a world concert tour beginning July 13. But alas! That was not to be, he died on June 25 before seeing Prophet TB Joshua.

Despite all these happenings Prophet TB Joshua has come under heavy attack from many, some of whom have labelled him a false prophet. And the debate about the authenticity of his ministry unfortunately has been orchestrated by a section of the clergy within the charismatic Pentecostal brand of Christendom. This has left many lay people unfamiliar with scriptures, let alone issues of Christian theology confused, as reverends or bishops are keener to criticise prophet TB Joshua than providing Biblical counsel.

Since the beaming of Emmanuel TV on free channel stations in most parts of Zambia, we have witnessed an unprecedented following of TB Joshua’s programmes. As a result, emotive debates have emerged from the pulpits to the pews, between clergy and lay people. The man has arrived on the scene, should we dismiss him or his utterances as the ravings of a madman? How do we know for sure that we have a prophet among us?

This article is written on the assumption that the readers hold to the sacredness of the Bible as the inspired scriptures from whence we would draw our authority in judging a matter as heresy or sound doctrine. It is against this background that we seek to examine the ministry of this man, in the light of scriptures. There are fundamental rules in the scriptures, which must be used to judge whether something is of God, or not. In the absence of this knowledge, one would easily find themselves opposing God or abetting apostasy. To begin with, if one does not subscribe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, they will have nothing to do with this subject at hand because there would be no basis by which any meaningful discourse can rest upon.

But if we want to find out if he is a fraud as some are claiming, or a true servant of the Lord, we can only do so with the aid of scriptures. Let’s examine for example the standards used in the scriptures to test a prophet. Deuteronomy 18:20; “But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death. You may say to yourselves, ‘how can we when a message has been spoken by the Lord? If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, do not be afraid of him”.(New International Version)

The precise knowledge of the future according to this scripture, is a preserve of the Most High God, and only God can reveal detailed events to happen in the future to His servants. Therefore, if a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord and the events take place, then you need to pay heed lest you find yourself opposing the Holy Spirit.

In the book of 1 John 4:2 :“This is how you can recognise the Spirit of God; every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the anti-christ which you head is coming and even now is already in the world”. The authenticity of any ministry is tested by how they profess about who Jesus Christ is. From all accounts, TB Joshua proclaims Jesus Christ to have come in the flesh hence his motto “Emmanuel” which translates God with us. His messages and sermons lift Jesus as the Christ! And what more?

Signs and wonders are daily phenomena in his ministry, just the way it was as recorded in the book of Mark16:20: “then the disciples went and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by signs that accompanied it”. It is amazing that some of the most fearsome critics of TB Joshua have no signs and wonders in their ministry and they want to take it upon themselves to persecute this great man of God. Is it not surprising, that even Jesus in his earthly ministry was accused of casting evil spirits by the powers of Beelzebub? Can these same critics who call themselves bishops, reverends, pastors and all manner of description show us one thing they are doing in their ministries that can fit into God’s compassion for humanity?

TB Joshua’s humanitarian effort touches the needs of widows. The physically challenged and orphans have benefited in his educational support projects. Recently the federal President of Nigeria, Musa Yar’Adua, a Muslim himself awarded him with “Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic” in recognition of his humanitarian efforts. Most people who persecute Joshua, particularly clergymen are moved by jealous and envy as he seems to expose fake ministries by his tremendous charities without begging for money. Anyone who is a true seeker of truth can know in the light of scriptures that for sure there is a prophet among us.

    As far as I am concerned and so far as I can see T.B Joshua is a sent one – sent by God for His great works among men! And all I have heard – the bad words said by people about him – to me is a direct evidence and elucidation of the wicked hearts of people and their unbelief in Christ whom many profess as their Lord and Saviour.

    TB Joshua is a man of God. If you doubt it – go and die! You have no reason for living…

  • It’s amazing that people use the pulpit to blaspheme or speak ill of other men of God. There is a saying that “if you are Good, you are just good and if u are bad you are bad.” U may pretend to be either way but the true caharacter is shown as time goes by. So far our dear Prophet u have shown the world your humility please drive on coz YOU ARE UNDER HIS EYES.

    Our God is a God of order and whatever he does and has done is very orderly. This has been the manifestation seen in the works that our dear Prophet TB joshua has done. Please let the orderliness you have shown to the world continue as we pray that you do not not disappoint many like me who is daily drawing closer to jesus because you came into being. God bless you and yours Man of God

  • Ndiye Ishmael

    Greetings in Jesus Christ name brothers and sisters in the Lord. I thank God for giving us a prophet in our days, really as it was it is, Prophet T.B. Joshua is a Man of God and God is using him. I like watching the live services on Emmanuel TV becauase the preaching itself delivers, heals, blesses and makes one repent to God. I don’t want to point fingures at anyone; I am encouraged by the words of The Man Of God when he said: THE AUTHORITY WE HAVE IS NOT TO CONDEM, ACCUSE… BUT TO BUILD. Yes Deuteronomy 18:20 says that a prophet who says something in the name of the Lord and does come to PASS is a true prophet, in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua the things he said came to pass. Also JEREMIAH 23: 28-34 says “The prophet who has a dream, let him tell the dream; and he with whom is My word, let him speak My word faithfully…..
    So, i believe God is speaking through Prophet T.B. Joshua and God will continues to reveal His might deeds through him. I haven’t met him personally BUT I do have the believe that is real and even Jesus Himself declared that We will do what He did even Greater things which mean He didn’t limit us; He raised Lazarus from the dead so we equally can raise people from the dead; it only takes faith. The question is; do we live in the Word, Jesus said if we abide in the Word and the Word abides in us WHATEVER we ask God in His name His Father will do it unto us. SO WHY ARE WE SURPRISED, DOUBTFUL, UNBELIVING and so forth….

    MAY GOD BLESS AND GIVE US DIRECTION.

    AMEN.

  • Mzoli Sedgwick Baatjie

    Prophet TB Joshua is surely a man of God. Demons run away in his presence, sicknesses of whatever name are healed in the name of Jesus. Now, those who have no wonders in their churches with congregants dying everyday are the ones to suspect. God bless the man of God TB Joshua. Soon I will see you man of God.

I believe and I know God will bless me through this prophet. Touch not my anointed servant, declares the Lord.

  • Ntombizodwa Ndlovu

    I really feel pity for these clergymen who claim that TB Joshua is fake. What i can only say to them is “judge not” this man is real and i believe in everything that he says and does. He has bn sent by God into this generation without faith and hope to win souls and im one of the souls he has won. He is a true man of God. The bible says signs and wonders wil follow those that believe and its really happening in his ministry. All i can say is man of God keep up the good work you are doing in our generation. It is my prayer and wish that one day i will be able 2 fellowship with you at SCOAN Nigeria. I hv received so much frm praying with you on Emmanuel tv. May God increase your annointing! HALLELUJAH!

  • james calistus

    i am not suprised or worried about whatever anyone says against my prophet, but i will keep thanking God for his grace on me, to know that prophet TB Joshua is from him. afterall, there is no way he will be accepted by all, because our saviour Jesus was not accepted by all in his time, how much more his servant? but the truth is, no one will accept prophet TB Joshua except if that person has been apointed to be part of the family. so rejoice if you are one of us ok.

  • Believing is not compulsory, whoever chose to believe should do so. It’s difficult when sensory perception is taken into cognisance. If you have no revelation of God’s Word, it’s zero. The prophet is doing marvelously well.

  • GOD Bless You man of GOD

  • And this year’s word is so much rewarding.

  • linda

    I thank God for raising such a man. He has given his life to serve God a true servant of God. Its sad the fellow Christians, Pastors, Bishop spend time talking bad about him instead of preaching the true gospel and helping people get delivered from afflictions.

    My prayer is that God will continue working through him to save the lost, afflicted in the Mighty Name of Jesus Chirst.

    TB Joshua may the Lord keep you in perfect peace may your ministry grow triple in Jesus’s name.

  • Daniel Nwaru

    One thing i perfectly know is that there is a big different between light and darkness, So my prophet is from the light and those who condemn him are from the darkness.

    Whether the world like it or not, Prophet TB Joshua is a servant of God sent specifically to serve the world at large like the name Synagogue Church Of All Nations self -explains. May the Lord bless him all the more until the whole world come to know and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord.

  • Tangisai Nyamuzuwe

    This a true Man of God. What he says is totally beyond human comprehension. Lets keep reading the word of God and it makes us understand TB Joshua much better. ‘BETTER IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, THE BEST IS YET TO COME’. He is a prophet of our generation. Emmanuel.

    • I fear for all these people who blasphem against what God is doing through the Prophet T. B. Joshua because its simple truth for anyone who knows the Word of God and who can listen to the Spirit of God that we are dealing with our Heavenly Father here. In Mark 3:22-30, the Scribes (religious readers in some cycles) said he was using a demon to caste out demons, how sad! Jesus went further to say that such a sin, which is a sin against the Holy Spirit is unpardonable. What most religious leaders have failed to appreciate is what the Bible says that the Spirit gives divers gifts, to some healings, to others prophecy and charity and so forth (though most of them are found in the SCOAN). I believe we can use the fact that we have different strengths to the benefit of the entire body of Christ than to try in vain, to pull down those who have different spiritual gifts from ours. After all, no one is an island: I am because you are, and you are because am. Let’s unite as Christians and we shall find ourselves at the feet of Jesus. He forgives and restores. Emmanuel.

  • marjorie adam

    As you well said most of the clergy who criticise prophet TB Joshua are driven by jelousy. Indeed he is a true man of God and he has touched so many lives in different ways. These clergy who criticise him are loosing church members leave their churches to look for something tangible that they are finding in synagogue church. These clegyman should no “judge another man’s servant” as the bible clearly admonishes, it is not their place regardless of what is driving them.

    Of a truth TB JOShau is a man of God.

  • Alinah Thoabala

    BONIFACE MWANZA has said it all, what I can saying to everyone of us is that we should really listen carefully to the word of God particularly when you claim to be the child of God, the word of God says; Do not touch My annointed ones…..Psalms 105:15. My family and I bless the Lord with the life of the Man of God and his ministry. Long Live Senior Prophet T B Joshua continue to do what God Almighty has instructed you to do, we love you and appreciate you, most of us we are no longer the same because of your teachings, prophecies and prayers you offer. I pray that God should grant me grace to be able to come to the Synagogue to meet the man of God personally. Love you prophet, your family and your Ministry.

  • ROY WINILE MOYO

    ….may The Spirit of The Living God be the impartial adjudicator……for surely…Emmanuel DOES NOTHING WITHOUT HIS WORD.
    SHALOM.

  • Thank you Mr Mwanza, I confirm everything that you wrote. I thank you for your article. The Man Of God, Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua is a real prophet amoung us. We (the world) are blessed to have such a powerful, anointed man of God amoung us. But we fake to recognize is tremendous work. I am myself is a witness of His anointing and I thank you every day for His life. I watch Emmanuel TV every time I can, because I know I am going to be blessed even when I watch rebroacast videos…this is just great. Thank you. As man of God always: “Glory be to God!!”…Emmanuel!!!…

    As the man of God said if u want to know if he is a true man of God u ask God. Sir i believe you. God is with u. Emmanuel.

    Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. One thing I want people of God to note is that the prophet taught us about authority and power.

    Most men of God have authority over their congregation , but lack the necessary power of God to deliver them . so these men of God are angered when there members tried to seek for deliverance elsewhere . they then uses their authority to confused the members that the prophet is a demon or devil . but when their members are at the point of death and they (members ) realized they were being brainwashed ever-since by their pastors, bishop and reverend . they quickly go to the Scoan for deliverance . though sometime unrepairable damaged might have being done to them ,health wise. ex: cancer of the breast that has already being cut off, leg ulcer that has already being amputated and so on.

    think of our many people are dead because of these self-centered, visions and dreams of people that need to have impacted positively to our generation if they were still alive today ?

    the question you would ask ‘Why wait so long before coming for the deliverance ” it’s was because they were under authority of their pastors,bishops and reverend. just because of tithe and offering they are receiving from their congregation.

    When authority hold you for a while from receiving your deliverance in the hand of your self-centered men of God , power of God will take over from there to the Real prophet of God.

    Please do not follow ‘them say” , go through the scripture in the bible and compare it with what is going on in the Scoan . you will receive your answer accurately.

    Peace of the Lord be with you.

    LOOK AND SEE THE TRUE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST IN HIM. THE WORD COMING FROM HIS MOUTH. HIS APPROACH TO HUMANITY. HIS LOVE LIFE, TEACHING AND DAILY ASSISTANT TO HUMANITY. THIS IS WHAT GOD EXPECT OF A TRUE SON. PLEASE BEFORE YOU CRITICIZE, BASE YOUR JUDGMENT AND STANDARD ON THE HOLY BIBLE AND LEAN ON YOUR UNDERSTANDING. JUDGMENT IS APPROACHING SOON, SO THAT YOU MAY NOT END UP WHERE YOU MAY NOT DESIRE TO BE. THANKS YOU JESUS FOR SENDING A GREAT PROPHET DURING OUR TIME.

  • BLESSING SHUMBA

    ONE OF MY PASTORS RECENTLY ATTACKED ME VERBALLY TELLING ME TO REPENT TOGETHER WITH MY TB JOSHUA BECAUSE WE WILL GO TO HELL.THIS CAME BECAUSE l HAD TOLD HIM THAT TB JOSHUA IS MY MENTOR,I PRAY FOR HIM AND AM A PARTNER OF emmanuel tv.it’s such a pity that the elect are the ones throwing stones at our prophet.some even spend special time for brethren castigating my prophet.well let them continue to do so so that the table goes big.let us leave it for God.WHY CAN’T THE PASTORS LEARN FROM TB JOSHUA HIMSELF BY NOT JUDGING OTHERS?MANY OF GOD OUT THERE: YOU HAVE HEADACHES THAT YOU FAIL TO PRAY FOR,YOU HAVE WIDOWS AND ORPHANS YOU ARE NEGLECTING BUT wHEN THE “AGENT OF THE DEVIL” AS YOU CALL PROPHET TB SHOWS THE WAY,YOU CALL HIM NAMES.SOME OF US ARE LAY PEOPLE BUT WE ARE TAPPING THE ANOINTiNG THROUGH THE MAN OF GOD.SINCE THE ELECT ARE THE ONES CASTING THE PROPHET,THE BEST IS SURELY YET TO COME.

    Every tree would bear fruits according to it’s kind. By his fruits, I now know who Jesus is. I Love u Carear of D Holy Spirit

  • For anyone who contradicts or has anything to say against the works of the Man Prophet TB JoshuA. What i will say is Read your Bible closely. seek insight from the Word. It is the only guide to such conttroversy. There is no other source of clearance than the Bible…

  • Faith

    Truly TB Joshua is a prophet among us, lets pray for him and support his ministry by prayer.

  • fungie

    accepting him as a man of God or not does not reverse the anointing bestowed on him by the almighty God. people need deliverance ,healing and breakthru. a prophet has no honour in his house, but God honours His word and people. if the man TB is demon possessed, why dont the pastors who sit to critisize him cast of the demon in him. while pastors, clegyman and christians are busy critisizing TB, TB is busy working in his farrow and is losing no time because everytime 24/7 God is watching. he is my mentor, my brother in the Lord, my spiritual nose smell the presence of my God in him. my spiritual nose, eyes and body are very functional and alert.
    He is a man of God.

  • Yeukai Brenda Samanga

    A complete person created by God does not need to doubt the work of God.we achieve what we want in life because of Faith,BELIEVE BELIEVE he z a true servant of God.

  • Yes indeed we have a Prophet among us, and his name is T.B Joshua, I believe he is a servant of GOD, and I love him. Longlife my Prophet.

  • Fidelis Kwaghlaade

    Prophet TB Joshua has re-enacted the service of God in truth and spirit. I’m most glad that he has laid hands on my head and prophesied to my life several times. I so much believe in him and his Ministry that the best way I respond to his jealous critics is to show them that he is my spiritual mentor. when someone critices him, compar the the two in every aspect of Christianity as seen in the scriptures and you will not be in doubt that TB Joshua is a prophet of God. Some Pastors claim that he has no mentor. I believe they are limiting God because His ways are a mystery. I thank God for giving us this Prophet in my generation.

  • John Kennedy Kudjo

    TB Joshua is a real prophet of GOD. A prophet of OUR Time. No doubt about that. ASK GOD TO REVEAL HIM TO YOU. A light for the world and a committed messenger of Jesus Christ.

  • Apostle Wellington T Mahati

    Long live Papa Prophet T.B Joshua. No matter what they say to criticise,and demonise you. We are here,your spiritual Sons and daughters,as witnesses to testify that you are true man of God, sent by Him in Jesus Christ name.

  • EZINWA ONYENWEAKU JOE

    No one can come to Jesus if God did’nt give him the grace and bring him closer.

  • Kenias

    Those who are opposing prophet TB Joshua, it is out of jealous and envy & lack of revelation. We have a true prophet of God among us, he is TB Joshua. May the lord God Almight bless & protect him more and more. Amen!

  • Eboude Suzelle

    Senior Prophet TB Joshua is a true man of God and may the spirit of God Almighty continue to be with Him. l do believe in His word, His miracles because is the the power of God.
    l pray to see Him someday.
    May God Bless Him

  • Okiakpe Wilberforce Timothy

    The Holy scriptures is trite in knowing who a man of God is, the Bible says test every spirit whether they be of God, the truth about it is that most preachers who criticize the man of God have not done so in the light of the scriptures rather they have allowed themselves to be driven by mere sentiment, but as for me, I am sure that He is a man of God.

  • Marshall b mburuma

    Tb joshua is a true man of God no doubt about that.everything he does is in line with the word of God,people why are you stil doubting him

  • Delali Tali

    TB JOSHUA IS A TRUE PROPHET. WHEN YOU READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY AND HAVE THE SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT NO ONE WILL TELL YOU. I HAVE BECOME A CHANGED PERSON SINCE I MET HIM ON EMMANUEL TV. NOW I AM CONFIDENT OF MY HEAVENLY INHERITANCE. ALL THOSE WHO HATE HIM, HATE THE TRUTH AND THEY ARE IN SATAN’S CAGE.

  • sylvia

    TB JOSHUA is indeed a man of. I had a lifechanging experience after i went to the SCOAN. He is reall a true humble man of God

  • pacific Mango

    me i believe that T.B JOSHUA is man of God,hi bless me,change my life in jesus name. I say amen because i believe.

  • Emeka

    TB Joshua is a man from God do not judge…

  • Osegbu Dave Nnanyelugo

    The bible made us understand that jesus never said goodbye. demon cannot cast out demon lyk jesus said. Believe the word of God then signs and wonders will follow you. I dont see the reason why people argue about the geniuness of senior prophet tb joshua, more especialy clergy men who should be more concerned about winning souls for christ and helping people. Rather they are accusing him. I dont blame them cause jesus said a prophet is not recognised in his home. So there is nothing new about tb joshua’s geniuness. Imagine a situation whereby the whole world is in darkness. I am so happy becos i received my deliverance in the dream, where prophet tb joshua prayed for me and i was free from every attack. So am happy to say this “PROPHET TB IS GOD SENT”. Cherish the jewel you have before you loose it.

    • james calistus

      it take’s the spirit of light to be in the light, so rejoice if you are called to be a partaker of the grace of God in the life of prophet TB Joshua. like we all know, salvation is all but only for those that believe in the son (Jesus christ) or his teachings. just like our spiritual mentor prophet TB Joshua used to say, that a man may confess to be a christian but not such in heart so any one who does not understand the things of the spirit of God will not understand the work that spirit of God do. in all i will always give thanks to almighty God for his grace that opened my eyes to behold his light in the life of prophet TB Joshua.

  • Who are we to judge TB Joshua`s worthness? If a nurse/doc trit the sic,a mekanic fixs cars,planes,ships &buses and yu believd them, wy do yu bring down yo faith on matters abt spiritual gifted pple? Afta all has bn said and dun . . .? Oh pple of litl fth

  • Prophet T.B Joshua is a true man of God and no body can change that. may Lord continue to bless you becauze in you am blessed. Please may you or wiseman visit my country.

  • Ugah Emmanuel

    What we all have to accept is that not everyone will accept him as a man of God, even Christ himself was criticise of his healing power so am not surprise. As for me his the best man of God i have seen so far, when compared to things we should expect from men of God such as healing, deliverance, teaching, prophecy, humanitarian works. My Dad use to call him the MINI-GOD. I am expecting my healing and i know even if i cant get to SCOAN i will definitely get it someday through live telecast. Those blasphamy are just been jealous of his blessing.

  • Thomson john

    It is unbelievable miracle god is working through man of god T.B jousha , through him people must accept jesus christ as a personal saviour, we all must enjoy eternal glory with our father jesus christ. Amen

    Thomson

  • Tiisetso A.Msasa

    im just shocked at wat ther man of God is doing,this miracles are indeed 4rm God,pls believe them,I dont wana be like Thomas in the bible,

  • Timothy K Ng’anjo

    John 1:11 He came to his to his own but his own did not receive him.
    This was Jesus Christ the Messiah.

    Today the world has prophet TBJoshua and it is expected that not all will accept him and his ministry.

    May God of grace forgive us.

  • i want to sound it very clear to all of you doubting thomas, believe it or live it no body is begging anybody to believe after all, Jesus said, i know my people and my people know me, they hear my voice and follow me. so those of us who accept the great prophet of God are his and he´s our`s. the bible made it clear, that you need the spirit of a prophet to know a prophet. and bible also made it clear that every good work comes from God because satan never do or give any good thing. again Christ said, if they persecute the master the servant can not be spaired. so i think all this examples are enough to tell you agents of satan that prophet tb joshua is from Christ Jesus. thank you holy God for gining us a prophet in our time.

  • john zulu

    God is in always in all ages and God’s Power can be manifested in anyone he wants to use. Prophet Tb Joshua is doing the assignment that has been ordained to him by God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
