[Opinion] TB Joshua’s ‘Negative’ Predictions And Adeboye’s ‘Non-Existent’ Predictions

The online storms that brew this week over the prophecy of Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua about the crash that ended the lives of Governor Yakowa and General Azazi seem to be slowly abating.

PASTOR ADEBOYE 3

As the news of the tragic deaths reverberated nationwide, Joshua released a controversial video on youtube which claimed he had predicted the incident and details relating to it on four different occasions. However, I still feel the need to air my views, furnished by contextual consideration, as the dust settles on the heated debates within social media that were triggered by the prophecy.

Understandably, the video drew its fair share of criticism, the major bone of contention in the minds of viewers and observers being Joshua’s continued proficiency in predicting negative events and his seeming inability to change them after such revelations come forth. I can well understand this mindset, having been one of Joshua’s most skeptical distant observers for long. However, it was last year when my brother fell mysteriously sick that I was basically ‘forced’ to look in Joshua’s direction for help. Doctors told me he had a treatable kidney infection but what I saw was my brother transform from a healthy, vibrant young man to an almost unrecognisable emaciated figure in literally two months, on the verge of death.

After exhausting medical treatment, a good friend of mine advised me to take him to The SCOAN for prayer. Circumstantially driven, I acceded and financed his wife to take him there. Three weeks later, my brother was back on his feet, eating well and regaining his lost vigour. Thus, my interest in Emmanuel TV was born, and I must confess, it has slowly become my daily spiritual food and a constant source of discussion and wonder within our home.

I don’t claim to completely understand T.B. Joshua’s ministry at The SCOAN. On the contrary, many of the things I see there on Emmanuel TV (especially the deliverance)baffle me. However, I have seen enough to know that Joshua is a humble servant of God with quite extraordinary powers he is unequivocally using to uplift society. In my view, he is the best pastor to have come from these shores – with an uncompromising message of salvation, an admirable array of charitable projects and real solutions provided to people who come with myriads of diverse problems.

So, on the argument dealing with his tendency to deliver ‘negative’ predictions, I think this is a case of blaming the messenger for delivering his message. It is sadly indicative of the state of our society and nation and the type of seed we have collectively been planting. As one commenter on the issues arising from Joshua’s prophecy opined, “It’s the prophecies of prosperity and ‘it shall be well with the abominable’ that has destroyed any remaining chance for Nigeria’s restructuring. The ‘prophecy of doom’ is to the sharpening of man… Let those who prophesy prosperity tell us what has come of it save the acute and nauseating love for money which, as the Holy Book says, is the root of all evil.”

Everyone wants to hear good tidings but how many are genuinely pursuing a righteous and just course that will amalgamate in a tide-turning shift within Nigeria’s political and socio-economic landscape. God cannot break His own Divine statutes, set in stone from the earth’s formation, the principle of seed-time and harvest.

If we continue to harbour corruption, celebrate decadence and have a compromising conflict of deeds and words, what then do we expect God to reveal to His servants about our future? Indeed, a flick through our national dailies reveals enough about the actions and attitude of our nation, its leaders and inhabitants, especially that of our youth, to know that a bleak future awaits us unless there is a radical change.

On Joshua’s revelation without apparent corresponding action and subsequent redemption, I believe the majority of people who heard about the prophecy and quickly drew such abrasive conclusions never actually took the time out to watch the video released on YouTube to the very end. Joshua is very explicit in explaining this issue. He said, “I have been wrestling with certain things.

When I say, wrestle, it’s an issue that I keep praying and asking God, ‘What I’m seeing should be changed.’ But God said, ‘No, the whole nation should come together and pray’. So, when I’m hearing my country should come also and pray together, that is when I will come out and tell you what I am seeing in the vision.

When I see a vision and I know I can handle it myself, I don’t need to tell you. I will call the wise men and we’ll pray. But when I know that this thing is not possible for me alone and my people to do, I will come out to tell you that this is what I have seen.”

If our eyes were opened spiritually, perhaps we would be privy to see devastating events on the verge of occurring within Nigeria that were forestalled through the prayers of God’s people at SCOAN, the news of which will never reach our earthly ears. Aside from this, the prophet prayed and enjoined the nation to join him. Did we?

I believe many of those blindly criticising the prophet are not well versed with his ministry or accustomed to watching Emmanuel TV. This prophecy is not an isolated proclamation. Indeed, every week, Prophet Joshua prophesies to individuals in the church with uncanny speed, accuracy and consistency. Whether its prayer for the terminally ill, reconciliation of a broken family, deliverance of people under demonic oppression or charity to the widow, orphan and reformed militant, Prophet Joshua is settling real problems with real solutions. It seems to me both insolent and incoherent to suggest he is just a ‘prophet of doom’ who capitalises on misfortunes to project his name. Please, don’t base your view on a single news report.

On a related note, Pastor Enoch Adeboye whose global influence on his flock and command on the common Nigerian is almost inestimable prayed for President Jonathan in his Redeemed Camp just a few hours before the ill-fated crash. The question beckons, did he not have any such revelation about the tragic events on the verge of unfolding merely hours after his public prayer with the President knelt before him? If so, were his prayers effective? Respected Nigerian journalist Femi Adesina of The Sun Newspaper, wrote in his column this week, “Didn’t Pastor Adeboye see the crash as he prayed with President Jonathan? Didn’t the Lord reveal it to him? Couldn’t he have interceded, so that the monumental tragedy would be averted… ‘The secret of the Lord is with those that fear Him,’ says the Good Book. So, why didn’t the Lord confide in Adeboye about the Bayelsa crash, which was to happen some hours after Jonathan had come for prayers… I’m sure the pastor himself must have been somewhat embarrassed when he heard the news.”

The reason I write this is not to gloat or in any way suggest Adeboye’s spiritual incompetence. I just believe it’s time Nigeria recognises who is who in God’s vineyard. Baba Adeboye is a fine preacher but, in my own humble opinion, not a prophet. This is evidenced by his yearly prophetic declarations which are almost nonsensical in nature if perceived to be divinely inspired.

He declares simple biblical principles and realities of life and packages them with the title ‘prophecy’ on a yearly basis. It’s high time someone like Adeboye can publicly acknowledges God’s gift in his brother in the vineyard, instead of the baseless bickering, crude condemnation and pulpit-judgement that have caused division within the Nigerian church fold for far too long.

I believe our nation should recognise God’s voice in this trying time and acknowledge the potential pastors, who are genuinely doing God’s work, have to bring Divine direction to those in the helm of affairs in this nation, if they are willing to listen. Who knows – if President Jonathan had visited Joshua for prayer on that fateful day, perhaps Kaduna would still be with its Governor and the deaths of six men would have been averted..

  1. I am in support of what u have said my brother but what i am not in support of is criticizing Adeboye. I am not a redeem member even though i have family that attend Redeem church. I was in the SCOAN service of 16th Dec. where Prophet TB Joshua explained this vision just as our brother have narrated here. It was after i listened to him that i understood that he cannot on his own stop something of this sort from happening without hearing from God, God wanted it to be a collective effort of not just him but our leaders and nation through prayer and there was nothing he could do about it. If we are wise we would listen and do as God says rather than shift blames. I was one of tghose who used to criticize him in those days of my ignorance but it took watching Emmanuel TV and testimony of deliverance from my cousin to believe that his ministry is one that God reigns in. I now tell people about him because he is a true man of God. I witnessed him settle problems in marriages among other things which i have not seen done in so many churches that i have attended since i was a child. God is using him mightily but most people have refused to see this, but God’s time is the best, i believe that as God opened my eyes to the fact that TB Joshua was sent by Him, He will also open the eyes of nigerians to recognise him as a true man of God.

    • Rosemary, at James 1:13 we read: “When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try any one.14 But each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin, in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death. When we blame God or ascribe to him horrific trajedies we lie. Man’s own wickedness and the fact that we are in the wrong place at the wrong time makes escape from disasters inevitacle. Jesus promise of the resurrection of the dead is reassuring. Thanks. Onassis

  2. Do not be decieved all these pastors only predict they don’t prophesy. Check d records of d prophets in d bible, their prophecies were often accurate, date n time , very intact. We do not have prophets today but people who predict n it may or may not come true. 1cor.13:8

    • Pastors of today are just making badnews. There is no pastor or prophet today with the givt of prophecy. It is falsehood they are spreading in God’s. There is no miracle without Diabolic powers. Do not let a postor’s power to perform miracle to mislesd you. Just like Elijah challenged the prophets of Baals,I challenge every pastor or prophets that claim the miracle they perform is as a result of God power or holy Spirit operating withing them,to use that power and bring a dead person to live. Hard? What is hard that God’s power cannot do? Did Jesus not raise Lazarus from death? Did apostle Peter not raise Ducas? Did Paul not raise Euthymachus and did Elijah not raise the widows daughter? Those are genuine miracle showing God’s Power over death and nature. Really,can todays pastors raise a dead body to show they have God’s backing? Ask yourself,why do pastors perform miracle,afterall,the sick they claim to heal by God’s power will,fall sick again and again and die. Is this what God’s power is all about? CAPITAL NO! When God will use his power,He will permanently cure every ailments even death will be no more as He promised in the Scriptures. So,forget all this fake miracle workers because they are just from the real miracle we are promised in the Scriptures. Be wise! Thank you! ……..If you appreciate this topic,please leave a comment.

      • Your opinion on our prophets are baseless, misleading and without any scriptural authority. No man has the power to do any miracle on his own save for achieving God’s will and purpose. Even in bible times, prophets do not go about raising the dead just for the sake of exhibiting power but in accordance with the will of God and direction of the holy spirit for certain spiritual lessons and purposes. Afterall did Lazarus et al not die at last after Master Jesus and other prophets you rightly mentioned raised them from death. Let us not indulge in academic exercise in spiritual matters but earnestly seek the face of God whenever He reveals anything, negative or positive, to those whom He has chosen.

      • did the bible say prophet elijah went to all the cementary to raise the dead, or did Jesus becos he raised lazarus went about raising the dead. every miracle is for the Glory of God. and it is accordance to His will, not for fun. It is not their power, it is the power of God. My broda, if you keep thinking like this, you will not believe Gods work even in your life. any miracle performed that is not scriptural, is false. Even when they use Jesus name. remember Jesus said “in my name will they cast out demons”, All y ou need to know this period is the scripture. anything outside that, i s false. Please my dear, dont be decieved.

      • @tony nwachukwu,you are a Jehova witness

  3. I think people should mind the way thae talk about men of God irrespective of the situation on ground & and it is not all secret that God tells is servant, HE only shows them what he wants them to know and dealing with His servants in divers ways.

  4. i am deeply impressed by this write up. D writer actually said my mind concerning many issues regarding d prophetic pronouncements by a highly repected and gifted but exceptionally humble man of God prophet TB Joshua. Although let me dissociate myself frm d writers critique of Pastor EA Adeboye, who is also a great man of God in his own right.
    This idea of ppl saying TB Joshua ought to be able to avert prophecies he sees presents to me as d height of spiritual irresponsibility. Its just like somebody saying to dat u have to look at a gutter in front of u, otherwise u will fall in. Wldnt it be stupid of you after u hv failed to heed d warning, and consequently fallen into d gutter, to now turn around and say y couldnt d person who warned u hv stopped u from falling? Dats just d case scenario.
    Many nigerian christians r just blind critics who out of dia carnal love for worldly pleasures, dual handedly embrace all forms of pronouncements abt prosperity emanating frm d pulpit but abandon and discard real prophecies dat hv to do averting impending schemes of satan. We all need to re examine our attitude to God and his expectations of us. And also treat his prophets, messengers and servants with respect.

    • The writer said your mind right? Let me ask you few questions, why will ur TB joshua always come out to speak after d incidents ve occured? If you are a computer literate&u knw abt IT very well,u’ll knw dat those youtube videos can be worked on now&u’ll claim it has happened since. Your pst want cheap fame but he’s no where near Pst Adeboye. Read Mt 24:23_24. And ask God for discerning spirit.

      • please learn not to compare pastor. the Bible says that the gift of God are given to the body of Christ for the edification of the church and not for which pastor is which or more powerful. Leave that to God himself to Judge. And to d critics of E.A Adeboye, now i know you know him little cos he always say he is not a prophet but he only says what he hears.Av u ever heard him to be called prophet Adeboye like the prophets title themselves. judge not so that u would not be judged. Adeboye doesn’t concern himself with other pastors he only tells you beware of what u hear anywhere and be sure u compare with the word of God

      • What’re u talking, are u educating or deceiving people? Has there been a generation without Prophets? Do u have a bible at all?

  5. False Prophets abound. We know of octopus predicting scores so why not a human predict things greater. A Pastor is different from a Prophet. God allow things to happen sometime if even we dont know why.

  6. We should be mindful of what we say to annointed men of GØÐ. Ãƪƪ I know Ȋ̝̊̅§ destiny can never be change.

  7. Watch what u say

  8. Prophet TB Joshua even proferred the basic solution to the calamity but the people concerned are the ones to blame because I read it immediately after the Dana crash that there will be a crash that will involved some important people in government. The Prophet said it that the crash won’t be as a result of faulty facility but a more or less attack, I remember he said to avert the tragedy, people shouldn’t board the same plane from any public function. If we must be sincere with ourselves, did these politicians complied with this instruction? The man said the nation should pray against the tragedy, did anyone among the concerned authorities take him serious? Maybe because such isn’t from Pastor A or from Rev. B. May God deliver the land from hypocrisy from the Christian folds

  9. Emeka, you need to pray seriously for the gift of the Holy spirit if you are a christian, most especially the discernment of spirit. if you are not a born again xtian, pls, accept the Lord Jesus today as ur Lord & Saviour.

    • You are right my brother. Even witches too prophesy/predict the future accurately (1 Samuel 28:3–25). Accurate predictions and miracles does not make you a servant of God.

  10. @ emeka. Who made u a judge. Ask 4 forgiveness bcos ur write up is heresis.

  11. It’s good enough that you TB Joshua see bad things, that doesn’t mean pst Adeboyee will see the same thing. Re member we all know in part and he will only see wat God shows him. I don’t believe anything TB Joshua says,ve heard things about him from very reliable source so ask God to open your eyes. Once you people enter into that church dat’s d end for u all. Spell is working on you.

  12. Emeka it is pple like u dat often mislead pple into thinking dat christianity is all about prophecies.do not discourage other christians & do not speak ill about other men of God. It is not ur place to judge them.serve ur God & leave these pastors for God.I expect dat wit d church u attend u shld know better.pls pls pls for ur own benefit get acquainted with the Holy Spirit.

  13. The reason why God reveal things to His children is to warn them about something and to also encouragement to pray for it or against it. So when God show U something and U do nothing abt it continually, then there is a problem. Jesus said Peter the devil wants to steal Ur soul, but I’ve prayed for U. Wat does that mean. Let’s not criticize anybody. Let all men be silent and let God b the judge. Selah.

  14. Obviously the writer is biased. It is not possible 4 TB Joshua to ride on Adeboyes fame. They arent in the same category. Joshua is tainted with occultic power though he has refined it and cover it with charitable deeds however the inside is stil wat it is Ocultism

    • @ sponde, you are really a small minded person without the knowledge of research, i wonder the kind of school you guys attend, when some1 read your inputs is like a kids talking, couple with jargons that emanates. do u know wat they call research? when you hear about a person or companies, the first thing you do is to carryout a thorough research about that person or company without basing ur inputs on hear say. please educat urself b4 inputting on matters. u guys are total disgrace to nigeria society. little or no knowledge about the word research. that is y nigerian graduates fine it difficult to get a job bcuz of lack of research. how can you write such things about some1 you know little or nothing about. a man whom have put his ministry on air for the whole world to see and so many have be coverted through this ministry, the guys is telling the whole world about christ through the emmanuel tv. if he was using Ocultic power like you said, them d real people u said they r using the power of God y cant they deliver him when he asked to join PFM. they would have use that aveune to cast out that ocultism out of him or r u saying that the power of ocultism is more than the power of God?

  15. ….you can use your mental faculty to factor out the ways of God. God is supreme and all-knowing. I will appreciate if we stop jugding their callings……since you did not call them – God did, they are accountable to Him n Him alone. There will be surprises in heaven, watchout.

  16. sorry i mean “you can’t” in my first sentence.

  17. this is not new, TB has always paid and use men to propagate his unique powers and at every opportunity will always want to compare himself with sincere men of God. The truth is that all these so called prophesies are just abrakadabra frm TB. Mr TB, why do u always bring out ur prophesies after they happen? u will now show the world wen u did prophesy such in ur church. Are we so daft in this present age not to know dat these are done in ur saw room with the help of mordern tech to insert life audience? why cant u prophesy such events long before they happen and allow the media to draw conclusions. Why do u always see these negative visions and never advert them? are u a prophet of doom alone? What happened to ur prophesy about the ghanian election? or ur prophetic prowels got it wrong? you can only deceive a few sometimes and not all everytime.

    • There’s no substitute for reading. Quit living in d past. You wouldn’t write this nonsonse if u watch emmanuel Tv. It’s only on Emmanuel Tv that u can get those prophecies first-hand months or even years before they come to pass. Ur problem is like that of the world, & u know the way of the world is not the way of God.

  18. Some times when i here people talk about pastors, prophecy and miracles it baffles me as you guys thinks that God cant do such miracle, i hear somebody say its pridictions, how can it be. Pls lets not bring the the rut of God upon our self. Do not judge what u zre not sure of. Cus u werent there when God called them. Thks

  19. I’ll want all TB joshua fans to read Mt 24:23_24. I ve a friend dat used to be in TB joshua choir from age 17,she’s now 26. You people will not want to hear all she went through in dat shrine called church but I give God d glory cos she has been delivered from their church. I repeat,any one who worship in TB joshua church are under spell and only. The true power of Jesus can set them free just like my friend was delivered.

  20. #smh# its sad to see dat d competence of men of God now lies in the speed and accuracy of their prophecies…we re not even reverencing our saviour who made d miracles or prophecies real… We re more intrested in following d minister dat has d ability to do dose tins! . Its people like u dat make up rising pastors to go to get power to prophesy from wateva source evn d devil himself….. Even as I have set my mind not to criticise any man of God, I dont agree wit ur write up here bcos it is only saying tb joshua is a better pastor than adeboye…. Who told u adeboye doesn’t pray and heal d sick? Who told u God hasn’t use him to perform miracles and prophesy to people? Does it have to be on tv before its real? U ppl seem to forget d function of these ministers (including us dat claim to be christians) is to win souls for christ… D miracles and wonders was to make people blive in God… If the ministry is doing dat den fine.. But if its a ministry where prophecies are made and left so dat dey happen and people commend d minister… Then it has to be checked… Pls let’s stop criticising our ministers! God is using the true ministers in different ways!!!!

  21. Be careful wat u say about men of God. No pastor is called to everybody. If ur called to Adeboye, be a faithful sheep likewise TB Joshua or any other pastor. Who is anyone to judge any man of God. Be careful lest u attract Gods wrath on urself

  22. Why do u tink God would like 2 have them alive? Are they better than those who die on daily basis? Dont you pray for yourself and you are healed of your sicknesses, and pray for others and still they die? We are ment to read our bibles and not ask such questions or judge anyone. Thanks

  23. Oh! Nigerian, y dnt u ple shine ur eyes. Wen er u going to free urself 4m joshua’s boundage? It is high time 4 u to carryout a research on dis Evil man parading himself as man of God

  24. Our God sits in heaven and does as it pleases Him on earth Psalms 115vs3. Fake prophets exist so does real prophets. Only God has the prerogative to differentiate between His anointed and the devils anointed. Whoever you wish to believe in is your business. God help you to be on His side because if you are not, it will be too costly for you at the end.

  25. Catholic and Anglican church will remain the best. You dare not speak or act with occult power. We have true men of God there who can lead u to life but people chose death in form of religion. Fr. Mbaka can heal and even raise the Death .GLORY BE TO GOD. Amen

  26. So sad to read as people ignore Biblical teaching to pass judgement on people.
    Prophet T. B. Joshua has a right to his ministry likewise Pastor E. A. Adeboye even Helen Ukpabio.
    No one has the overall right to operate except God says so. The Bible records about that rich man who stored enough wealth hence began to boost, telling his soul to rest, drink and eat as if his life was in his hands. That night God struck and the rest is history today.

    One thing is sure and certain, whoever is not of God will stand before the judgement throne of God.
    The Bible commands: Let the good and bad grow together until the time of harvest.
    That you don’t have the same measure of power with another man of God should not spark off deadly criticism. God gives everything according our individual ability.

    Prophet T. B. Joshua’s prophesy was very clear; a warning, calling on the country to unite and pray but we ignored because it was from Joshua and we have seen it clearly now.
    Indeed, I am not surprise because even Jesus was criticized by his very people thereby prompting Him to declare; ”a prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his own family”- Matt 13: 57.
    Lets stop blackmailing today for God is watching us all no matter who we are. Prophet Joshua go on with your good works of helping humanity.

  27. Whether T. B. Joshua or E. A. Adeboye, who are you to charge God’s elect, you all who are condemning either of the prophet or pastor should be careful, in the Kingdom of God, you all should be sensitive and mind what you say, coz the Kingdom of God is not for fun or a play ground, lest the wrath of God falls on yopu.

    Stop judging them, for God said in His word “Judgement is mine”.

    Am warning you all o, avoid God’s wrath.

  28. God will help your ignorance because any good bible schorlar should know better than to pass any judgement on anyone as it is an exclusive preserve of the Almighty and all knowing GOD.

  29. Beware!!!
    *Here are Scriptural standard(s) for measuring a prophet or man of GOD: Deuteronomy 13:1-3; 18:21-22.
    *A person or organisation that is labelling, criticising or judging, apart from on these standards, may be working against CHRIST and the HOLY SPIRIT!!!– Matthew 7:1-5; 12:22-33; Luke 11:14-23; John 5:22-24; 1Corinthians 3:10-17; Ephesians 4:1-16.

    Love & Cares!

  30. Yes, tb joshua is the real prophet of God. Lets call on him to communicate with God to find solution to boko haram saga, didnt God tell him about boko haram.
    I wouldnt believe if some so called prophet man of pay people to remove some parts from copter and then predicted for the crash landing of the copter to make people believe them and woship them.

  31. What is the purpose of revelation if the seer does not have the power to stop the bad and deadly predictions from happening? Why would God reveal them? Is it for us to prepare for an elaborate funeral? As a matter of fact, I am more confused by these prophetic utterances, but I do not condemn any one. God knows all those who are His.

  32. As much as it is inapparopriate for a man of God to criticize another man of God which I am so confident that Pastor Adeboye will never do, it is also highly inappropriate for anyone like this writer to criticize an anoited man of God like Pastor Adeboye.

    I am very dissapointed with the content of this write-up. I can’t really point out if the writer is being jealous of the fact that President Jonathan knelt down before the General Overseer of RCCG instead of the General Overseer of SCOAN which happened to be his church.

    I also wonder on whose authority will a writer use his pen to judge between two wonderful men of God, to tell who sees or hear or perform miracles better. Shouldn’t such matters be left to God?

    Come to think of it, a man should be more concerned on hearing God for his life, family and future instead of trying to bring down men of God with his pen. Engaging in such acts of baseless and sentimental criticism like this only raises a big question in our hearts. Has this writer been paid for this unscrupulous assignment?

    Finally, I strongly believe that what a man carries inside, whether good or bad, weak or powerful, especially a man of God will announce itself to the world. Jesus said: ”By their fruits, ye shall know them”. (Matthew 7:20)

    Why fight for a man of God when God can fight for him. For God said, ”touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm”. (Psalm 105:15)
    I am of the opinion that all men should pray continually for their spiritual leaders instead of bringing them down in any form. We all should also be concerned with pleasing God with our own lives and remember that each and every one of us will give account of everything that we do here on earth. (Matthew 12:36)

    REMEMBER: GOD IS NOT MOCKED, WHATEVER YOU SOW, YOU SHALL REAP (Galatians 6:7 )

  33. As much as it is inapparopriate for a man of God to criticize another man of God which I am so confident that Pastor Adeboye will never do, it is also highly inappropriate for anyone like this writer to criticize an anointed man of God like Pastor Adeboye.

  34. Comedy in d Christian world over miracles nd prophecies.
    Wat really are people worshiping now adays? God or his Messengers(Pastors or Prophets) and why are people worshiping? For pride or for God’s reasons
    .
    .
    Pls stop this public embarassment of ur religion. Worship God and God alone in d way deem best fit. Worship him according 2 ur conscience not because of d fame or personality of his messenger because on the day of judgement u shall be carrying ur cross ALONE!

    Allah is the Greatest!!!

  35. Things of God are purely spiritual , u can never achieve em thru academic knowledge .
    Read about the story of David after taking someone wife & the death of his son despite his prayer

  36. All of u should examine ur conscious,shame on u how can u guys being talking about anointed men of God in this manner sulaimon has advised u better read ur mine and leave God elect along

  37. I am amazed at the way people dable into spiritual matters without proper understanding. God is all knowing and reveals secrets to whomever He pleases. Elisha prophecied that the Shunammite woman would have a son but the same Elisha did not see that the boy was going to die though God raised him later. It is very dangerous to citicise men of God inrespective of your believe. The fact that you don’t believe in someone does not make him less godly and the fact that you endorse another does not make him more of a man of God. I wish the writer of this article would think well before he criticises men of God. 2 Peter 2:10-13

  38. I feel sorry 4 ppl who out of sentimnts talk ill of God’s chosen…I reserve my comment but in as much as d writer seems 2 make an argument, his sentimental life was vivid just bcos his brother was healed by d same man otherwise, he wld have said d same negative things abt d prophet…..mr Writer, U re a miracle seeker and dis will darken ur thoughts…..Try nt 2 draw God’s anger by making reckless comments…U re no where in d realm of spiritualty…pls work out ur salvation…God will defend His Name and His Servants….He knows them all…..

  39. Its very OBVIOUS this writer knows little or nothing about Pastor Adeboye.
    In the 2012 PROPHECIES Released by Pastor Adeboye on January 1, 2012…about NIGERIA, God said through him;
    #3. “He said we are to pray more for prominent
    Nigerians, so that those who see this year
    may see the next.”
    Do you now see that you are a BIG FOOL???

  40. Observations of carnal individuals are merely carnal. Brother, everything we say and think enters God’s ear; and He says touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. If you have not heard this before, God will have mercy on you if you cry for mercy. But, if you are aware of this scripture, then get ready for the reaction of the scripture – for scripture is Spirit and He will always not deny Himself. Hmnnn. Samuel

  41. Even me, who is an Anglican, but watch EmmanuelTV like food, join Howard Odimba to say Ebiere Matilda Okoro is a very stupid idiot, goat, fool with fish head and brain, together with all those who are saying things like hers in the “Comments” section below and elsewhere. This man that is doing things that the world has not ever known in contemporary times, is now being ridiculed like Christ. They have turned him into a man of sorrows, yet, he is still walking and living on the face of the earth, moving with such “Unpararelled Anointing” from God. Millions of us worldwide, if not Billions, whose eyes have been opened, are standing behind Prophet TB Joshua as our spiritual father on earth, because we have known the truth.
    Archbishop Benson Idahosa, who is the father of PFN and CAN in Nigeria, stood openly in a stadium in Nigeria and prophesied that in a year’s time from then, TB Joshua will be dead! Exactly that same time he prophesied the following year, he himself Benson Idahosa gave up the ghost and died a shameful and mysterious death! He had touched God’s Anointed Servant and General! Who is then from God? PFN and CAN answer the question! Since then, fear had gripped all PFN and CAN pastors in Nigeria from prophesying death to TB Joshua because they know that God is with him. But because of shame and jealousy, they have now resorted to damaging his name by using “highly demonic comments”, which if anyone hears it, would think ill of this great and rare Man of God. How can Prophet TB Joshua come from the devil when demons and evil spirits in the people he delivers confesses the he (TB Joshua) is from God and Light is radiating from his face and eyes, while they are in darkness! The evil spirits have also claimed that they are the ones remoting and causing Men of God in Nigeria and the world, to speak ill of this man so that thousands and millions of people will not see the Light and remain in spiritual blindness. Can the devil cast out devils? Certainly not, because the devil cannot destroy his own kingdom! The world beware, the leaders in the churches those days called Christ Beelzebulb meaning “devil” and Christ said “if they can do this to Me, then, they will do even greater evils to you all, because the servant cannot be greater than his master”. So, it is very possible that church leaders and general Christians can also call Christ’s servant “devil”. Prophet TB Joshua is fulfiling Bible prophesies. Let him that has an ear to hear, let him hear. Let him that is faithful, evil, righteous, continue so to be, until the Day of the Lord. Watch EmmanuelTV. God forgive my earlier comments, I’m just expressing my disappointment.

  42. We should all remeber that no one can figth for God
    we are all children of God inrespect of our place of worship
    we can not undestand God on trying to defend any man of man of God,
    we can stand to know better when we
    ALLOW THE WORDS OF GOD GET TO US
    ENTER INTO OUR BLOOD TO GAIN SUPREMACY OVER US
    then we can stand say whatever we what to say.
    know matter how we condition ourself we need to be born again

  43. Can darkness cast out darkness?y speak bad about d prophet?d sem way our lord jesus christ was mocked..wat meks u ppl nw dffrnt frm d scribes nd pharisees?fooling urslvs nd disgracing christianity..av u eva cin a muslim insulting islam?u al shld b ashamed of urslvs

  44. ONE THING IS CERTAIN GOD WILL NOT SHARE HIS GLORY WITH ANY MAN THEREFORE, A PROPHET THAT IS OF GOD GIVES GLORY TO GOD AND THAT WHICH IS NOT OF GOD DRAWS ATTENTION TO HIMSELF

  45. I am fond of beauty tips as I am fashion loving. Thanks for your useful suggestions.!!!!!!!!

  46. fake prophets or real ones, no one will or can take to heaven – life is per head and heavenly race is personal..
    that’s what the apostle ……work out YOUR OWN salvation!!!

  47. one thing we nigerian are known for is condemnation and criticism if Jesus christ appears today nigerian will be the first to condem the son of GOD, for those that criticise why cant u establish ur own church and do greater work of the spirit which no one has ever done before.pls becareful so that u will not call for the wrath of GOD upon ur life

  48. DO YOU KNOW NOBODY IS TOO BE BLAME FOR YOUR MISLEADING,DO YOU KNOW GOD EVEN SAID IT THAT WHEN THE END COMES FAKE PROPHET WILL BE OUT DOING MIRACLE ALSO SAID BE WARN THAT YOU MAY NOT BE DECEIVE COS HE IS NOT THE ONE THAT SEND THEM. DON’T YOU KNOW DEVIL AND HIS ANGEL ALSO KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN NEXT FEW MINUTE FOR SO CALL Tb Joshua yo know what will happen or said something will happen and it is so does not make him man of GOD or a man of GOD.REMEMBER FAKE THINGS ALWAYS SHINE AND TRY TO CONFUSE PEOPLE PLEASE LET YOU CARE BE FULL(BE CAREFUL) YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUIT SAYS MY GOD

  49. I want to BLATANTLY disagree with this blogger and disabuse his mind that (God’s) Prophets are not given power to stop any revelation/vision given to/through them by God from happening, rather obviously, they only turn to God in prayers and He (God) gives direction(s) or allows it the way He wants it.

    2 Kings 20:1-5; Here, God-through Prophet Isaiah-told King Hezekiah that he was already a “gonner” that the only thing left for him to do was to pack his “bags and baggages” (get prepared) before he dies. The question is this, why didn’t Prophet Isaiah (either with or without the consent of the King) assure the King that he was going to prevent the “looming-doomy” death prophecy from occuring? Or perhaps, one may likely take it this way that “why did Hezekiah had to bury his face against the wall to pray to God instead of just simply telling the Prophet…..”Yes, look Prophet, you know I’m the King of this mighty Nation-Israel, you don’t have to let me down (die), you gat to prevent this doomy stuff?”

    TB Joshua is a prophet; Adeboye-without an iota of doubt-is also a very true prophet but God uses them in different ways. God can reveal a vision/revelation to His own prophet with or without caution. God can tell His prophet that Nigeria is winning 2014 World Cup, but it’s also a responsibility and probability of belief or disbelief of action and inaction on the part of National Football Management Board for results. If any disaster is foretold, it’s left for disaster management body and every individual to prepare for or against it. GOD GIVES US EYES TO SEE, HE’D NEVER USE OUR EYES TO SEE FOR US. A word suffices for the wise.

  50. Keep posting good stuf like this!

  51. In ur own wise u ll be tinking dat u r making sense out of all des dat u hav said. I wonder if u truly value ur destiny and life

  52. Oh, what a perversed generation, why are you keeping yopur nose in things tht does not concern you, majority of you are wallowing in sin, yet you are defending or condemnning men of God, p[lease ask for forgiveness and prepare to meet with God, you can die any moment fgrom now

  53. You people are idle and ignorant, you need to find something better to do with your time, get ready to see the Lord any time from now, do you need a prophet to tell you that you can die any moment from now?, don’t be part of a perverse nation, and please you will escape the wrath of God if you just keep your mouth short. There is no power tussle between Adeboye and TBjoshua, How will you compare the two of them?, let each one continue to serve God, God knows those who are His, but I want you to give your life to Jesus Christ now, so as not to miss the next flight to eternity, you don’t need a prophet to tell you that you will die one day.

  54. ADEBOYE is a man God is using in so many ways, but He is a man all the same, I will advise that you emulate the spirit of god in him and see how good it is to serve the Lord, however even if you pray for twenty years, many will still follow TBjoshua for their pockets and mouths, but the truth is no one can serve god with Mammon together, I think someone should preach to TBjoshua, he may eventually give his life to Christ you know, afterall, your brother, a onetime notorious and fearful robber in West Africa: Shina Rambow has given his life to Christ, so please tell TBjoshua to take the queue and stop any comparison. If Shina Rambow will get to heaven, it will be a disaster for TBjoshua to miss the flight, so tell TBjoshua to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour. Simple.

  55. Adeboye doesn’t call himself prophet,but most people who call themselves prophets in Nigeria are simply theatrical magicians feigning to be God’s servants.Accept Christ today and run away from evil that ye may receive the Promise in the end

  56. The secrets of the Lord are with those that fear Him indeed. however,not all secrets revealed are source from holy spirit. Beyond this,we must understand that our God is unquestionable.Elisha never know that that woman has no child until he was told.therefore,I will posit that we should be mindful of vision and evil prophecies most important our contemporary prophets who claim to see all things.Dear writer of this page,I guess your motive underline this write is yet to be disclosed.if not,you are to illogical to speak of Pastor Adeboye in that sense.

  57. Ppl shouldn’t attack on others comments,but to comment on the topic instead, we are here comment not criticized others opinion, we are so aggressive when it come to religious issues the, even Jesus was criticized by ppl in his time on earth,so no man of God above criticism my brethren make una take it easy o.

  58. these guy is sick….tb joshua is fake…end of story…

  59. u should not 4get that the press are there 2 make themselves famous. But i pity who hv made this statements 2 cause discort among pple of God making stament which is controvecial 2 men of God. Let him go and questn God on how he wants 2 use his servants. And nt pass judgment or critisiz men of God

  60. Tb Joshua is the Most High servant, God is with him. Emmanuel

  61. @Emmanuel N God bless you for that write up. People who call TB joshua fake are nt chritians and re still living in the dark. When jesus christ was on earth he performed miracles too and neva built skools of any kind he concentrated on his fathers work, today several men of God re pastors n running skools, but TB joshua is just different in many ways. They call him occultic man re u in same cult with him? Am nt a member of SCOAN bt I see the truth.

  62. Ebiere Matilda Okoro

    Stupid Emmanuel N. And Joseph Odimba..If u dey craze,no bring ur craze come one inch come my side..Cos if u chop craze alone..Me,na Madness+Craze+Uwere wey I chop join!!..Na so craze dey take start!!..Are U Through With Ur Insults?!..I am actually enjoying the show of plain stupidity,senselessness,irresponsibility,Awkwardness and not to forget..Illiteracy.Keep it up you dummies!!..I only gave my own opinion of what I think..I didn’t comment for pple to insult me..Every man is entitled to their opinions…I say my own,u say urs..no call anybody name..if u can’t do without calling someone’s name..Shut Up ur Toilets..I just don’t want to start my own craze,cos if I do..Comment Box Go Full By Force!!..Me,I know say I need God’s Mercy everyday..there was no need for u to be soo frank about it,u lame dweebs!!..By the way,I am having a good laugh!!..M enjoying the show u motherf**king,god-forsaken,nauseating,no-good stool pigeons of men..Who are also the real goats and idiots who r in d guise of intelligent guys knowing-it-all..Boil Stone if u care..or jump into ocean if what I wrote is paining u.End Of Story.

  63. O men of our generation. Why are you fighting yourself? Pastors will stand, you will stand before the throne of judgment. It is what u are given that will be requested from u. Who told u that miracles are evidence of acceptance of God? Matt 7:22. Why are you (writer) even comparing Prophet to Prophet, bc of the miracle of ur Brother? Hmm. God help u!

  64. Be careful wat u say about a man of God. Good or bad, dey are anointed. Take Saul for instance. No matter d evil he had done, David couldn’t kill him because he was anointed. Let nobody question God or people carrying His mark. Be Careful O ye journalists.

  65. The writer’s purpose for the article has been achieved, longest controversial blog but something perturbing is why Nigerians are loyal to their leaders? The wrong and the right alike would at the day of recKoning stand before God and their leaders would be asked questions just as they would be asked… We should not even discuss about prophets in the holy book let alone modern pastors. When last have u held a bible, torah or quran,knelt down to the inviscible omnipotent,ALL hearing and knowing God and thank him directly with songs and dance or even prayed for your healing like paul and silas prayed or as daniel prayed or as mohammad prayed? or dou think God is different towards u? he is as God to them as he is to you and our Father is only ONE…you call on other I call on other but all will stand TOGETHER for JUDGMENT and it is SOON!!!!

  66. Ebiere Ends Her Case Here.

    Oh…God Bless U For Me,Babaunde and Tim!!!…I completely agree with u guys…Leave them to do their thing..They Will Be Judged According To What They Have Done..We Won’t answer for them..we will answer for ourselves that day,..so,Oga Writer,ur write-up wasn’t necessary at all..Cos u won’t answer for them..Those that want to be good.let them be,but those that want to be evil,let them continue…It is only God that knows their hearts,not we humans to start jumping into conclusions that “this is this,that is that..”Judgement dey come,be good and give a good account to ur creator,each and every man.

  67. Only time shall tell the good ones and the bad ones. God is at work. Be warned, be wise, be calculative not even too religious, you will be able to differentiate Miracle from white magic.

  68. I’m glad to going to your website,much more nice article,appreciate your data.

  69. Emma, You are just full of grammar but you talk trash, how could Jonathan’s visit to T.B Joshua have averted the crash? Is it the visit that will change Gods mind? If the Joshua that saw something couldn’t change it, how could Adeboye who didnt see it could (this argument is just to come down to your level) Don’t write about what you don’t understand, If T.B Joshua himself he couldn’t change it, how could Adeboye? I cant recall T.B Joshua calling to a National intercession, but I stand to be corrected. I agree with us sowing what we reap, and it’s not everything you see that you must say in public, I remember the first belview crash, the sunday before it my pastor told all of us in church to call him before boarding any plane, cos planes are gonna crash, he didnt make a National call, because he wasnt instructed by God to do so, so only us in church knew he predicted it. so if T.B Joshua now said it on air, does it mean T.B is more of a prophet? Then another thing you need to know is there are prophets, some are from God, others from satan , you shld also know that Satan is the author of disasters, but God allows him show himself at times, especially if it is deserved or if at the end, the disaster will serve a divine agenda (e.g. Jesus’s Crucifixion) so the mere fact that a Prophet ALWAYS sees disaster is a red flag, maybe he is just revealing their plans to suck blood in their dark world. So be careful when you write, The mere fact the your brother got healed at Joshua’s is comendable, at least you are happy, but that doesnt validate him as a man of God, babalawo’s too heal. But I’m not saying he’s a babalawo O, im just saying spiritual things are delicate to handle, signs and wonders are not a yardstick to measure who’s with God or who’s with satan, they both have it, but the differentiating factor is mostly their lifestyle, are they honorable people or not, how Godly are they in their personal lives, not just what they preach, Anybody can preach Godliness…but it takes God to actually be Godly!!!

  70. When the trumpet sounds today no man of God will back you to heaven. Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

  71. u pple should stop speaking nonsense and blaspheming words or do u want to tells us dat Jeremia is not a prophet of God? he was even call prophet of doom. abi did he avert all does evils tins he prophesized. ur miracle’s faith comes frm u not d man of God, dat means even u d miracle seeker is expected to do somtin I.e to have faith. wont u ask ur self wat did Yakowa did in his part to avert a prophesy said on him. Joshua cannot carried his cross 4 him neither any of us but only him.

  72. Even if l am no a Christain, seeing is enough 4 me to knw dat T.B is a living Saint. 4get about d Christian perspective and face real human judgement, in 100yrs today in niga we have not got a living saint like him who cares less of himself, but on pple well being. l believe d last generouse giver we eva heard in dis world compared is Mother Theresa of Golgota. (if u said am lyin pls tell me dos givers u knw in Niga & d rest of d would)

  73. Mr. Emeka u re a big fool and need urgent attending to. U re a church goer in search for miracles u can get if u just could pray on ur own but no u chose to cast blasphemy on other men of God. U dnt understand d word of God itself so get a better job dude

  74. Emeka, y showing ur stupidity n foolishness publicly or u want 2 advertise urself as a good writer? U lack wisdom u only hear n understand english. Grow n wish up

  75. Uhm!do not judge so that u won’t be judged,I don’t av anything against any man of God o,all I know is I am a redeemer and daddy G.O has never laid his hands upon me,we pray for our own miracles n our prayers r answered.we believe we are our own pastors,pastor adeboye showed us ђξяξ we can find d way n d truth which is our sword THE BIBLE and this has been working for me and my family.as per pst. T.b joshua,av never bn to his church b4 but he calls himself a man of god,then let him be.we are all running a race which is heavenly race and the lord will ask each of us How many souls have you won for me? What would be ur reply?preach salvation and not criticism

  76. It is only God that can either allow or avert any mishap,it is not in the prophets power to change it,but God reveals whatever will befall people to His elect.T.B Joshua is only the messager and he delivered what was shown him. We shouldn’t forget that he also predicted the outcome of 2012 Uefa champions league that Chelsea Fc won,was this a prophecy from hell or demonic or probablly occultic world as many of us seem to admit?.. Even though him (T.B Joshua) was using means(satan’s inspiration)as claimed by people,is he the only one that knows where satan is?,if so what are the proves?.. Nevertheless Jesus the Christ was termed a blasphemer even though HE was the saviour..,so T.B joshua is not an exception of that blackmail. Other Nija pastors claim to be from God but they are not walking in the footsteps of CHRIST ministry on earth,He wasn’t selfish,greedy and self-seeking as we see our today nija pastors except T.B joshua who has distanced himself. He reaches out to the poor,the orphans even people of the other religion(muslims)in his charity and voluntary deeds nation wide. During one of the meetings he came out to tell the whole world and people that cared to listen of the donations made across the globe for that noble course,both cash and promisory note in cash and kinds. How many others have ever told their members of the offering and tithes realised on a sunday?. I need to be told of a single poor man’s child in covenant university,babcock,and other pentecostal mission schools owned by Nigerian pastors,but T.B joshua has done a lot too many to count,what more examplary life a christian do we need. My love for God and T.B joshua all the way….

  77. Please u all should stop this blasphemous arguments. Why do we christians engage in so much judgement and criticism? I discovered that it is very difficult to hear or read of moslems antagonising each other. As Christians, we should pray 4 d unity of the church and ask God to take away anything or anyone that would bring shame to the body of Christ.
    We find it so easy to talk bad about our spiritual leaders, it should not be. Leave them to the God they profess for ultimate judgement. Every believer should seek for a personal relationship with God because for this reason were we created. Even though we lost that opportunity in the garden of Eden, He has purchased us back to Himself through the blood of the lamb – Jesus.
    This I think is the greatest miracle of all.
    Please accept Christ Jesus and share the good news to all. THIS IS THE GREAT COMMISSION.

    Sing this song with me:
    let there be love shared among us, let there be love in our hearts, let that your love fill this nation, cause us oh. Lord, to arise give us a fresh understanding of brotherly love that is real, let there be love shared among us, let there be love.
    Let there be peace,………
    Let there be joy,………..
    Shalo

  78. “…touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm”. Do not attract the wrath of God by speaking for/against those called by him. You did not receive the call, they did! “to some he made apostles, others ministers and evangelists”.

  79. As far as Am concerned senior prophet Tb Joshua is true man of God.

  80. Femi Adesina must be an idiot for what he wrote, if he reads d bible well, then he wud know d secret things belong to God and he can reveal it to whoever he wish….criticizing pastor Adeboye was uncalled for, and to those who say TB joshua is not a real man of God na dem sabi, only God can judge him besides the good book says one way to test if a prophet is to watch his words…..and so far most of his words do come to pass so pls give TB a break.

  81. Emeka is a compound fool for saying things like this. it’s obvious he isn’t a Christian… he is probably one guy that lives all his love waiting for miracles and judging people by it. Do you know that God is not even interested in miracles? he said these signs shall follow them that believe. who are you to dictate who God speaks to. If Joshua had so much of the anointing, perhaps God wouldn’t hesitate sending Jonathan to kneel before him. You are not a Christian because Christians who know their God do not steer up division like this. God said in his word, I won’t quote, you find out. He said, that the body of Christ is one and he has given to some, gift of prophecy and to others gifts of teaching. to others gift of healing and so on. so if your baseless argument is based on prophecies which gives you the impunity to make senseless conclusion on who the nation listens to, then your seat in hell is reserved permanently for you unless you change your heart. come to my village and see witch doctors giving some so called pastors powers to do signs and wonders and come and see how their church is booming and growing without bounds. so Mr Emeka, it’s so unfortunate that you are not yet a Christian because the bible said, by their fruit we shall know them. if yours is to criticize men of God, it is then obvious that you are a jobless fanatic whose work is to cause division amongst Gods children. Am not going to say anything about Joshua’s ministry, but for you Emeka, you are just useless in Gods site and if you stay this way, I bet your kind of heart has no need and can’t enter Gods kingdom… Repent, it’s just unfortunate this is a copied post , if not, I would prefer educating you in the matters of the spirit. that’s my name, find me anywhere…

  82. Please guys, don’t while away yõüѓ times mocking and hailing and criticizing the men of God. No one knows they are up to, we all know that T.B Joshua prophecies and not predict as so many of you had said: I’ll talk mainly on that… Can you come out boldly in a gathering and predict tomorrow? Even if you’re 99.9% sure, you won’t have the boldness to do so because of the shame it might lead you to, please never you say pastor T.B Joshua predicts, he prophecies. Secondly, some said he predicts negative events, ‘give unto dog what belongs to dog’, Nigeria is a corrupted nation as we all know, please, can God give us peace while we have separated? Can God answer our prayers when we don’t pray collectively? God said if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and call upon me for interventions, I’ll answer them and heal their land. To know a true prophet, he prophecies and says the solution, I had noticed that each time T.B Joshua prophecies, he gives out the solution but all is overlooked and afterwards, the cowards will come out considering only the end of the story to judge T.B Joshua. As for me, I see him as a true prophet sent from God, irrespective of his miracles, his teachings are corresponding to the bible, he don’t preach money, I hate pastors who preach about wealth, riches and wellness only, that’s not the aim of any pastor, the primary aim of every true pastor is to preach the kingdom of God, I must confess, such pastors are rare today. I don’t judge so I won’t ßë judged, physically, I refer to T.B joshua as a man of God. As for E.A Adeoye, I don’t even know about him, I can’t say what I don’t know, but don’t ßë proud because you had the president knelt down in front of you, its nothing… Christians of nowadays will now blame pastors for misleading them, it can’t and can never ßë an excuse. Where is yõüѓ bible? Don’t you read yõüѓ bible? Is the bible not the words of God almighty? Everybody is a pastor yes everybody is a pastor, you can pastor yourself with yõüѓ bible, don’t ßë deceived (joshua1:8) thanks to everybody out there, it’s yõüѓ boy saimonpee

  83. I weep for those who has taken the place of God to judge who is man of God and who is not, this what jaws did to Jesus, some even said he has devil, if this generation knows what will come upon then, Oh God of heaven have mercy

  84. U are nt a christian cos if u are a christian u can’t critising the man of God lik Baba Adeboye just ask 4 d 4givness of sin.

  85. whatever u call ursef u are a writer, and not a pastor, not even a Christian, becos a Christian can not speak the way u deed, God sometimes do not tell his Anointed everything that wants to happen, that is why he is God. If u are sensitive to the yearly prophecies which is categorized in parts u will see manifestations. If u want to attract readers to your paper don’t do so by speaking ill of great man of God like Daddy Adeboye. That is one man whom God has been using mightily, or where u paid to do this? I pity u on this, may God have mercy on u.

  86. pls stop criticisim.u are only telin us Tb is beta Dan Daddy Adeboye….who told you that….wat a man is carrin inside will annoce him to d world…. go get beta tins to do

  87. Logical thinker. Your cells are indeed active Emeka. Only God knows his true worshippers. Nigerians need a stress-back, spiritual fathers are dividing the body of christ

  88. l dont knw y religion is setting division among u….Let everyone go to whichever church they wanted and serve God in true mind and stop following doctrines of superiority laid down by religion leaders. Follow ur Holy bible standard 4 ur life. if we do this we cannot be bought over by anybody.

    There are many ppl working 4 God across the world and many are still coming on the way but only God and time will determine everyone genuineness. Paul planted and Apollo waters- they both serving God’s purposes…

  89. pls u guys should stop talking about men of God, only God knows who is a true worshipper is, what we need presently in our country is prayers, not criticism.

  90. We are suffering from “conquered people” mentality in Nigeria. We have been so brainwashed by our pastors and Imans that we tag any attempt to xray them as heresy. We don’t even want our political leaders to be made accountable. We should not ask GEJ why he allows corruption, or why our universities are closed because “the man has been ordained by God” and as such we should be “careful not to incur the wrath of God”. What arrant nonsense. It is this kind of mentality that allows our “big men” to get away with all sorts of atrocities against the Nigeian people. In the book of Acts of the Apostles (I don’t have the scripture uphead), the disciples went from house to house sharing the word and whatever they heard, THEY WENT BACK TO THE SCRIPTURES TO SEARCH IF THOSE THINGS WERE SO!!! By always attacking Nigerians who ask honest questions about pastors, some people are just practicing spiritual hypnosis and voodoo. The Bible says “try all spirits! Trying means analysing, it means questioning, it means dissecting!

  91. i read through Emeka I.’s write up above. from his language, i presume he is an intelligent person. but towards d end of his argument, he gave me issues to doubt his education. it is unfortunate and pathetic when people like Emeka who have not studied to show themselves approved unto God as workmen, who need not be ashamed, but rightly dividing the word of truth to haste into terrains where angels fear to tread. Emeka undoubtedly showed that he is among the 5000 who will follow Jesus as long as 5 loaves of bread and 2 small fishes keep multiplying. truly it is unfortunate that Emeka will use pastor Adeboye’s name in such baseless comparison. such uninformed and childish zealousness is really embarrassing. ordinarily, i wouldn’t be drawn into such unnecessary issues. but the cheap issues and debased conclusions proffered by Emeka leaves much to be desired.

  92. Please let us watch our language because I get tired of all this columnist or journalist that are biased why don’t you allow the readers be the judge instead of concluding first. And remember everybody have it’s own calling if not There won’t be so many churches or denomination and the work is many and workers are few so the bible says pls let’s watch it.

  93. Hmmmmm….mhaaaaaaa end time tinz nt all glliter are Gold…..God bless daddy G.O 4ever!

  94. Is high time we understand the real meaning of christian and stop all these arguments which will profit u and i nothing, is high time we focus on what the Holy Scripture says cos on the last day, ur argument, gift or anything u might think of will not save u only ur life style on earth and hw much u obey the word of God that will take u to Heaven not church. according to the scripture there are many gifts which is given by the same Lord, the gift of speaking in tongues,prophesy, healing, wisdom etc. why all these arguments have u take time to read 1Cor. 12:12 down, so if all those gifts are not important, they would have not been there in the scripture and i believe that all those gifts are for us the children of God not for animal. so let’s stop condemning ourselves remember; thou shalt not judge. if only one person is endowed with all the gifts, he can not carry it so don’t imagine that God is not wise when he used the parts of the body as an illustration.
    i will advice everyone of us to be wise, read the word of God and do what it says. if God say u should prophesy don’t hesitate to do that no matter what people says to avoid punishment. but if u’re a fake prophet, pastor, Priest or any thing u’re doing in the Lord’s vineyard, be aware that the punishment is awaiting u. So brethren let’s not fight against ourselves over God’s gifts, on the D-day we shall know who is who.

  95. Peaple should know what to say about the men of God. As a man of God, He gave different talent to each individual, example Jesus twelve disciples received different talent, even one of them still sick power from devil to make it look real to people who will follow Him. My brother’s and sister’s please believe in God only. Take pastors prophets to be your guidance only. Thanks

  98. Wow wow am not surprise that people still doubt the prophet tb joshua calling him all sort of negative names.the holy book has said it” anything close to G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ attracts persecution,intimidation,name calling etc” u can see that the bible doesn’t lie just take a look @ the synagogue church of all nations headed by the prophet temitope balogun joshua since his early ministry till date he has been the most persecuted pastor in africa…S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ therefor I won’t advice any to talk G̲̣̣̣̥Ơ̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴̴͡ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ or bad abt Scoan nd his prophet because it is written and åt̲̅ is written can not be changed…am a member of living faith church and a viewer of emmanuel tv…majority that has aired their heart here are member of diverse denomination of churches but take a look @ some of us our comment, you already begin to judge men of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ whereas same bible Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ read says “Judge not” we begin to ŞāƔ this church is G̲̣̣̣̥Ơ̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴̴͡ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ that church is occultic hmmmm. Who made you judge? Note no one is perfect be it prophet joshua or adeboye or oyedepo or chris oyakilome etc åt̲̅ ever they do, or prophesy Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ shuldnt come to conclusion on judgement Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ guys shuld know that in the college of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ no one will be given double promotion U̶̲̥̅̊ have to take every course also a true man of God will not use his pulpit as a judgement platform to ŞāƔ this man is frm G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ that one is frm devil that’s an error. Friends weather you critcise tb joshua or not the fact remain the same “where G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ guide he provides, who G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ has ordained no matter U̶̲̥̅̊я blashpemous comment it can’t change G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ position” let men be liars let G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ be G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥. The synagogue church of all nations is rooted in Gods word S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ no matter what your religious pastors says abt tb joshua,or what Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ ve read on pages of newspaper etc it can’t change the mind of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥.the more d critics the more powerful the synagogue gets the church grows strength to strength each day with great numbers of worshippers from all over the seven continent in the world president,ministers,governors,men nd women of tiber and calibers are nt left out. Can’t U̶̲̥̅̊ see that your libelous comment, defamation, name calling can’t even move a grain of sand when it comes to the life of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ on tb joshua? Friends if Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ need answers to tb joshua calling or sonship run to God by reading your bible and praying with your eyes of faith wwidely open don’t run from God by listening to what men [religious leaders,sinners,etc] has to ŞāƔ…no man shuold boast of his ability and power NOTE: Gods government and authority arE incontestible…the way and manner God execute his plans are beyond human comprehension…”Lastly do not judge anyone take a look @ davids life in d bible he was describe ” as a man after God own heart” despite his sins assuming pple ζιƘƐ U̶̲̥̅̊ critics were to be around Ŧħξƞ Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ wuld have critcise david as well and only G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ wuld have determine U̶̲̥̅̊я faith because in the closet david lays his petition to G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥..pls judge not

  99. Also note that only men of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ utter the deep things of God as they were carried along by the holy spirit. There are levels in the ministry of God ζιƘƐ high,higher and highest each men of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ are position in their respectiively S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ therefore it dose mean that if the man of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ who is at the high level can not do åt̲̅ the one @ the highest level does, that doesn’t calls FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я name calling because G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ has called some to be apsotle,evangelist,prophet,bishop,pastorsec and each are been given diverse responsibility that’s while wen Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ take a look at your fingers Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ will discover that all are not equal..however I respect daddy adeboye S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ much and I love him as well I also respect and love tb joshua as well moreover tb joshua is this man of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ that doesn’t talk bad about other people be it men of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ or religious leaders he respect them all and even adice his congregation to pray FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я his critics stating the book of psalm 23 which ŞāƔ ” I will set a table in the presence of U̶̲̥̅̊я enemies” tb joshua is S̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ endowned with wisdom that he doesn’t even have time FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я his critics in his words during one of his sunday service he says ” the name calling persecution,intimidation,slanderous remarks etc causes him to be known all over the world and that persecution are tonic to his anionting” tb joshua is a man who is never moved by åt̲̅ men has to ŞāƔ because he knws the canopy he is under, he knws those fight FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я him are more than those who are against him…indeed a prophet is not recognise in his own land …the stone the builder rejected has Ϟ☺ώ become the chief corner stone…åt̲̅ a hunble man tb joshua that care less FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я himself and more on others to crown it all God bless him with a unique woman FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я a wife who doesn’t show off in dressing and appearance…i love all men of God no one is perfect they are humans ζιƘƐ us opportuned to be servant of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ it doesn’t ♍αk̶̲̥̅̊ξ them to be perfect please do not listen to gossip don not judge do not condemn…leave the fight FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я God don’t fight FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ let G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ fight FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ…if Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ love your neighbour[U̶̲̥̅̊я neighbour could be your enemy,brother,those who do not share the same faith with Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ,etc]as Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ love yourself I bet Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ friends Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ will not pay attention to gossip and Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ will not begin to post libleous comment about men of God and Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ will not begin to stand anywhere and condemn because there is power in our tongue NOTE: most of our troubles are tongue troubles…I pray Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ listen to Gods word by making his words the standard FO̶̷̩̥̊͡Я your life…remeber when G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ come to take his people the question will not be who worship at redeeme/syangogue/christ embassy/salvation ministry/jehovah witnesses/living faith church etc but who worship in spirit and in truth on behalf of christians,true worshippers of G̶̲̥̅̊ợ̣̣̇̇̇ƌ̲̣̣̣̥ and emmanuel tv partners and viwers I ŞāƔ big Ŧђɑ̤̥̈̊п̥̥̲k Y̶̲̥̅̊Ø̲̣̣̥Ǖ to U̶̲̥̅̊ all LET LOVE LEAD

  100. there are different calling in d kingdom of God…some are pastor…others evangelist…etc every one have his or her calling must try to stick to that calling…the comparism is not needed at all…they both are servant of God with different calling in ministry

  101. Why on earth won’t people say things straight. Has Pastor Adeboye ever come out to say he is a prophet. Wow you guys should mind your business. He is a pastor and not Prophet Adeboye. The bible makes mention of this in ephesians 4:11-16, so you can’t say why wouldn’t he know. You could as well ask the creator why weren’t you given birth to into the family of Obama or Bill Clinton why your family. So its the same thing. There are prophets you’ll see and mere seeing them you’ll know who they r real or fake…

  102. The writer is actually entitled to his candid opinion,though this reveals a shallow and salacious mindset.Perhaps he needs to meditate on Deuteronomy 29:29- “The LORD our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions (NLT).

    God is the custodian of secrets things and He chooses whom His Secrets are revealed to.However, Amos 3:7 says the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets. The question is, was it in God’s plan to destroy the former Governor of Kaduna State? or those who perished in the plane crash?

    God’s Prophet is not less if he chooses not scare the populace with nerve-racking,blood-curdling or petrifying prophecies. He may simply go on his knees praying that God should avert imminent dangers without consulting you sir.And if God chooses to allow or destroys like He did in Sodom and Gomorrah, then the Abraham (s) (God’s Intimate Friends) can only plead for mercy or leniency. The fact that a prophet reveals evil things to come does not make him God’s Prophet.

    Articles should not be written because of cheap popularity or rapacious motives. It may be apposite for some people to go on their knees, asking God to purge their polluted heart for unguided,mendacious and sinful thoughts.

    God bless you!

  103. God gave the nation of isreal Moses – they sparingly believed him. Moses and other prophets of the True God wrote about Jesus. When Jesus eventually came , they rejected him and said they choose to adhere to Mosaic laws which their fore fathers disregarded grately. Now God has given us HIS INSPIRED WORD (the Bible) But people have chosen to listen to individuals instead of the Bible. Including whatever any pastor is doing now has been recorded in the Bible! The Bible says if God didn’t spare the generations of Noah and (Sodomo Gomorrah), then this generation will by no means escape the great war of the Almighty. That’s why we now need salvation. What we now need is in the Bible (John 3:17). Why don’t you get inside ur room u alone and talk the Only True God and ask him for the Organization of Christians that teaches exately what the Bible teaches.

  104. WHAT IS THE DIFERRENCE BETWEEN THE TWO -ONE AN OCCULT THE OTHER A COMPROMISER,NOT COLD NOT HOT

  105. How I wish I was God to see everything clearly. Brethrens, don’t judge, don’t forget that you don’t have any prove to proof your points of doubts; God seeth, knoweth, heareth and doeth everything. Watch and pray!

  106. Test all spirit if thy are of God! This sign shall follow them that believe!God is seeking for worshippers in spirit and in Truth. The only ministry christ gave all believers is the ministry of reconciliation(go yea into all the world and preach the gospel making deciple to me from all nations).

  107. Prince Atundaolu Jacobs

    Unbelievable

    I don’t expect this happening among our pastors. God never gave any great or most famous man of God in the whole to be a judge. Only God count one a sinner and the other one a hell candidate. Jesus never complain or argue or blame the thief crossed by the right side of Him but because the thief was favoured Jesus said he(the thief) shall be with him in the paradise. The whole world has given Baba adeboye his due respect as the most elderly pastor. Jesus don’t have time to fight His member despite what Judas and Peter did. I called this talks and manner among the pastors as a sign of anti-Christ. If Baba adeboye think something is wrong with TB Joshua then go and meet with him and preach the word of salvation to him. He’s your younger one. Chris okotie divorces his wife. Is it biblical? A youth leader of living faith church in kogi state is the head of armed robber, did you say anything? A Rccg pastor diead and later discovered he had a wife and four kids in abroad and he’s legally married in nigeria. Please let love lead us in our doing. I hate seeing one man of God fighting or criticizing another. This is not work of God. We are all a sinner.

    I am Prophet Atundaolu

  108. men of God you speak against don’t know you but u know them. The more you speak against them the more they go higher and wax stronger.
