Heads of states, mostly from Africa, at different times have jettisoned protocols and dashed in to see a pastor in a Lagos suburb. They go to him to kneel, pray, learn and “seek the face of God”.
Newly elected president of Ghana, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, narrates how Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Ikotun, Lagos, predicted his victory.
A creature out of this world, a weird man in white suit appeared in a church in Lagos. An early morning rain and chill amplified his spooky presence. Bearded like Nebuchadnezzar and dressed in tailcoat like Don Juan and an English gentry, Professor Chukwudi Nathan Okeakpu sneaked into The Synagogue Church of All Nations in the Ikotun area of Lagos and tried to blow up the place but failed. The self-styled “professor”, occult master, astrologer extraordinaire, grand anti-Christ and Satan’s deputy got converted instead. Pitted before a superior force, he buckled and begged for forgiveness. After seeing the light, he confessed his sordid existence.
Of recent, Prophet Joshua has been the butt of renunciations and denunciations by some leading men of God in Nigeria, who questioned his authority and his authenticity as a man of God. Without any doubt, Joshua is an enigma wrapped in controversy. And it was our desire to unwrap this enigma that took us to The Synagogue, tucked away around the Ejigbo and Egbe axis of Lagos.
He is the founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, and an unlikely guest on a football pitch. Yet Pastor TB Joshua created a surprise of some sort when he floated a soccer team recently. Complete Sports Saturday’s DAVID MESHIOYE in this interview tries to unravel the reason behind this, from the benevolent man of God.
Welcome to the worldwide fan club of Pastor TB Joshua of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos, Nigeria!
