Paid To Blaspheme Prophet T.B. Joshua!

Many have heard varying rumors and startling reports concerning the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua, which seem a total contradiction to what they are watching on Emmanuel TV day-in and day-out. But for the spiritually minded, such division and contention only serves as a sign of God’s divine calling in his life. The Scripture clearly tells us in 2 Timothy 3:12-13 – “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Anything close to Jesus receives attack – but when God is on your side, you will stand the test of time and persecution will be a tonic to your anointing.

The following story is from The SCOAN’s latest publication of Read Us will be a shock to many. However, it only shows us that the devil is using every trick in his book to try and paint The SCOAN in a bad light in order to stop people from coming to receive their freedom, deliverance and healing. The devil wants you to take all you hear without questioning, but as true Christians, we must be careful to make sure of all things in order to hold fast to that which is true (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

Well did Gameliel advise the Pharisees in Acts 5:35-39 – “Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

FROM militancy through to blasphemy to discovery, the tale of James is intriguing and intrepid, revealing both the jealousy of men and the justice of God…

Life was difficult for James. Growing up in the squalor of a remote village in Bayelsa State, Nigeria, it seemed he was set to follow his peers into a life of poverty and obscurity. But the zeal to make something out of life, to break free from the jinx of failure burned within James from a young age. He found that opportunity as a rebellious teenager when he joined a group of notorious militants with a promise of an exciting lifestyle and good money. But there was a price. “Because of the nature of the job I was doing, I went to so many places for charms for protection with the result that if you cut me, it won’t penetrate. If you shoot me, the bullets won’t enter.” The charms soon started back-firing for although protection was seemingly given, spiritual attacks and terrible nightmares became the norm. Realising he needed deliverance, James set off to look for a church where he could be set free from the satanic chains he had inadvertently locked himself in.

TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua - Man's rejection provokes God's direction. When man rejects you, God will begin to direct you.

The church he eventually attended however had other motives – ulterior motives. “The pastor prayed for me, and then asked me to wait behind afterwards, that he wanted to see me. After some time, he asked me if I wanted to work with them.” From militancy to the work of God? James was shocked, but decided to accept, believing this could be the key to a new life. “After all, there’s nothing wrong in working in the house of God,” he surmised.

The assignment for James however, was not the one normally associated with a church or God’s work. It was a dark assignment with dangerous intent. “I did not know that he was asking me to blaspheme against the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. I had never met T.B. Joshua in my life. I’d never even seen him. I’d never even heard the name before. So I accepted the offer as they would pay me a huge amount of money to testify against Prophet T.B. Joshua in any of their crusades.” Naïvely, James agreed. Little did he know that such acceptance was to entangle his life further into a mesh of chaos and confusion, misleading and deceiving tens of thousands in the process.

“What I was required to say is: ‘T.B. Joshua is a satanic agent from the kingdom of darkness; we belong to the same kingdom of darkness. I am on level seven and he is on level five. He never mentions the name Jesus Christ in his church, he only mentions Emmanuel!’ I danced to their tune because of the money involved. They took me around many states in Nigeria and beyond to testify against the man of God. Every crusade, a lot of people usually gathered to listen and hear me out.”

Rumours spread like wildfire as the web of deception weaved its wicked way further throughout the country and beyond, painting Prophet T.B. Joshua black in the eyes of people. However, the intent of the perpetrators did not materialise as his ministry waxed stronger despite the hail of persecution and false accusation. In the midst of this, James decided to travel abroad to South Africa in search of greener pastures, the money he received in the course of blasphemy never amounting to or accounting for anything meaningful. “Getting to my new location, I found myself doing rubbish. My life was somehow useless. What I didn’t like, that’s what I saw myself doing. And all this while the pastor never stopped inviting me back to Nigeria for the same purpose of blackmailing Prophet T.B. Joshua each time they staged crusades and I always obliged because of the money involved”.

Life continued in a downward spiral with various attempts at business all ending in failure and frustration. James seemed stuck in a vicious cycle of life, with no apparent end. “I received a lot of attacks and lost almost everything I acquired.” Marital problems loomed and his spiritual life was practically non-existent. “I used to go to church to play music, sing and do everything in the church – but to give my life to Christ was something I never contemplated because of what had happened to me in the past. I only saw church as a game.”

But an incredible discovery was around the corner, set to transform and reform his life and future. “After some time, my wife demanded I install a satellite dish in our apartment to enable her and my son to access Christian channels. I succumbed after a lot of pressure but any time I was in the house, I preferred watching movies instead of Christian channels. One fateful day I tuned to channel 33 where I saw Emmanuel TV and not quite two seconds later, I saw the name, Synagogue Church. I was interested. Not quite five minutes on, I saw the name ‘Prophet TB Joshua’ on the screen and realised immediately that this must be the man I had been blaspheming.”

For the first time in his life, James saw the man he had witnessed publicly against on countless occasions. Remorse began welling within him as he heard the name of Jesus Christ mentioned frequently. Regret pierced his heart as he saw the remarkable healing testimonies, accurate prophetic messages, touching charitable activities and challenging biblical sermons on Emmanuel TV – all in the name of Jesus Christ. He had been deceived to deceive. “I saw and heard him mentioning “In the name of Jesus Christ” times without number. I said, ‘Ah! But the people that asked me to testify against this man said he doesn’t mention the name Jesus Christ but only Emmanuel. No! I can’t remain here. I must come down to Nigeria, confess my sins and free myself so that my family and I can have a bright future.”

His eyes opened to the truth, James sought to right his wrongs and embarked on a journey to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria. Knowing his public blasphemy had influenced many negatively, James believed his public confession could influence many more positively. On December 20th 2009, standing in the arena of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and speaking live on Emmanuel TV, James shared his experience to a rapt audience. Prophet T.B. Joshua publicly forgave him, prayed for him and delivered him in the name of Jesus and 16 years of false testimony and profanity finally came to an end.

    Am shocked! Indeed a prophet is not respected in his home. Oh God bless and protect your prophet. He is a gift in the whole world. We can now confirm those who crucified Jesus were not common sinners but church leaders. Lets stand with this man of God in prayers.

  • sonia

    Thank God opening brother James’eyes. I also heard from a friend that Prophet TB Josua do not uses the name Jesus. But when I watched him on TV I saw him using Jesus’name. From that time i begin to watch Emmanuel TV and now my faith in God grows every day. Thank you Prophet TB Josua for going on to do what God sent you to do.

  • CHRIST lives today,Act.1.1-8.i really believe in God

  • The Bible tells us to speak the truth and the truth shall set us free. I thank God for brother James, he is been set free by speaking the truth. The same bible tells us to forgive and forget, i thank God for T.B Joshua for forgiving James, it really shows he is a man of God. T.B.Joshua likes remainding each one of us to forgive because we need to be forgiven.

    A powerful man of God is the one who is not shaken by whatever people from darkness say, I pray to God to continue using T.B.Joshua so that many people like me can be encouraged,saved,delivered through the word God. Emmanuel. Esther- Zambia

  • Busisiwe

    It is very sad and painful for christians to stand against what God is doing using his prophet. I have learnt that what people do not understand they label it and call names that are not true same as people who are full of envy and jelous. I will always glorify God almighty and the lord Jesus Christ for using prophet TB Joshua to help and direct us back to our God. I pray to God to bless,promote, proctect,provide for him and his family and his ministry in Jesus Christ Mighty name Amen!!

  • **hiss**..can you imagine?…

    I’m even reminded of one colleague of mine, he told me that Pro T B Joshua is a ‘con man’. i said to him, ‘ well, up until he cons me first, thats when i’ll believe that he is what you say he is’, otherwise no ways!
    Not a man who has made changes in my life even before i meet him face to face. My life has transformed. Quiet a lot. I’ve made Emmanuel TV my daily bread just as much as i’ve made His word the standard of my life! Thanx to the brains behind The SCOAN. Sometimes i regret why i did all the things i did, why hadnt i not scrolled through all the channels i have in my tv long time ago, because then i would have long discovered Emmanuel.tv, but then i remind myself of what the Prophet always say, that sometimes God puts us in situations we find ourselves in, in order to strengthen our desire for Him. How does a man who teaches you to find out that life is simple con you?

    Oya! Temitope, don’t mind these fools oo! Please continue directing us in the way of the Lord. God will bless you abundantly.

  • Emmorgene Machebe

    I’m very happy that God spoke for the man of God, Prophet TB Joshua. What I like even more is that the prophet didn’t speak or defend himself and tried to explain himself. He continued with God’s work and God acted on his behalf.
    Praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ!!!

  • Ngozi F.O

    I watched it live on that fateful day. Out of jealousy man set out to destroy rather than to build, as man of God says; many are called pastors but are not such in heart. What they did not understand they called it names, what they understand they want to destroy.

    Thousands of people have been deceived today from the pulpit meant to preach the word of God and deliver people from their bondage instead they use it to blasphem other men of God who have great annointing unlike them that have nothing to deliver.

    Thank you man of God for the forgiven spirit you have as you teaches us to forgive because we all need to be forgiven. God will bless you greatly and annoint you more and more in the service of God and mankind.

    I will always thank God for emmanuel tv whom God uses to open the eyes of many who have been under the boundage of lies for many years. I pray with you man of God for God’s mercy upon the life of our Nigerian pastors in Jesus name.

    Prophet TB Joshua – Man’s rejection provokes God’s direction. When man rejects you, God will begin to direct you.

    This words by Prophet TB Joshua, just come in very handy this week in my life. I had a terrifying conversation on Sunday evening, 05 September 2010. Very disturbing to my peace. Monday morning, 06 September, i got this mail and it caught my eye.

    This words had help me to focus on the direction by God and not the rejection by man. When i got this msg, my life had changed. I know the Lord will make a way where it seems there is no way. every morning His mercy is new and fresh and I face life head on.

    I am craving for God’s Direction in my life, and I love the Holy Spirit very much. but i had discover that i was playing a one man show, but now I know that the Holy Spirit is actively busy to direct my path. and the peace that surpasses all understanding guard my heart.

    Praise the Lord, Hallelujah. Remain blessed, my family in Christ!

    Emmanuel – God with us

    Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

    Praise God Almighty and thank him for taking care and bless SCOAN and viwers of Emmanuel Tv all over the world last year 2010

    We are now in 2011. I know the Almighty God will bless SCOAN, Emmanuel Tv and anoint Snr Pastor T B Joshua more and more.

    Man of God and people who do not love other man of God, should know that our God is a GREAT GREAT BIG BIG GOD!! He reigns with wisdom and power. You cannot shake the Almighty God’s kingdom, it has no limit in power to anoint his servant Snr Pastor T B Joshua to deliver, to pray, to heal, to prophesy, to minister, to preach and to train the wise men and wise women and many other related things of the Almighty God. God’s kingdom is not corrupt and no-one can defeat and conquer it.
    There were other man of God and people who were being used by the devil to fight the God’s Almighty kingdom and his word before Jesus Christ was born and before the Bible was written. They failed to stop it. (these man of God were persecuted and subjected to other evil ways to denounce Almighty God and his word but they refused to go the evil way).
    Even now there are man of God and other people who are being used by the devil to stop the word of God to spread every corner of the world. (clothed in sheep skin but inside there are goats). They frastrate the man of God Snr Pastor T B Joshua not to do his assignment, which he was anointed to by God Almighty and are failing. Because God is with him and no-one can defeat the power of God Almighty.

    Take note: God said everything will pass away but his word will not pass away

    The Bible says in Hebrews 4:12
    “‘For the word of God Almighty is living and active sharper than any double edged sword it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

    Let the anointed servant of God Snr Pastor T B Joshua do what God asked him to do, to pray, to heal , to deliver, to preach and to do many other related ministries which he is doing in SCOAN and all over the world, through Emmanuel Tv

    If there are any other man of God who want to be true servant of God there is a verse to read in Psalms 16 vs 11
    ”AsK God Almighty to show you the path of life with joy in his presence with eternal pleasure at his right hand”

    2011 (THIS IS THE YEAR OF ANOTHER CHANCE)

    In Jesus name

  • Backwards never forward ever man of God. let nothing stops you the devil knows that you are a winner,stay blessed !!
