The founder and general overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations late Temitope Balogun Joshua know as T.B Joshua was buried yesterday at Ikotun Egbe Lagos State.
Here some fact and all you need to know about late Prophet TB Joshua
Do you know late T.B Joshua spent 15 months in his mother’s womb, but 9 months is normalcy for woman to carry her baby on the womb. He also said he escaped death during a quarry explosion near his house, just seven days after his birth.
Temitope Balogun Joshua was born on June 12, 1963 in Ondo state and died on 5th of June 2021 in Lagos.
T.B Joshua didn’t born a male child but have three female children (Sarah, Promise and Heart Joshua).
Temitope Balogun Joshua married to Evelyn Joshua with whom he had 3 female children
Joshua attended St. Stephen’s Anglican Primary School in his hometown of Arigdi Akoko in Ondo State between 1971 and 1976. However, he failed to complete his secondary school education. Known as Balogun Francis back then, his schoolmates referred to him as “small pastor”.
In one of his books, T B Joshua wrote that he started his church after 40 days prayers in 1992. He claimed to have received a covenant from God to start his ministry. The church started with a handful of members but has since become one of the most influential churches, not just in Nigeria but across the globe.
Next in line to Joshua in SCOAN are those referred to as the wise men. Although they were five in number, the figure had reduced to three at the time of his death on Saturday.
They were: Wiseman John Chi Meh from Cameroon, Wiseman Racine Bousso from Senegal, Wiseman Daniel Emelandu from Nigeria, Wiseman Christopher Orji from Nigeria and Wiseman Harry from Greece.
Meh and Orji pulled out from Joshua’s church under controversial circumstances some years back.
In 2010, Joshua was blacklisted by the government of Cameroon and termed a ‘son of the devil’ but if he was scorned by the Cameroonian authorities, the deceased was worshipped in Dominican Republic. President Leonel Fernandez invited him to the country in 2017. On his arrival at the Las Americas International Airport, Santo Domingo, he was received by top military generals, police officers and dignitaries amidst a carnival-like atmosphere. When he rounded off the crusade he went there for, he was honoured with the highest award in the land.
SCOAN had published numerous videos claiming that the late Pastor had the power of healing of incurable disabilities and illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, blindness and open wounds.
Several hundred Nigerians and international visitors came to the SCOAN each week to register for the prayer lines where the visitors are prayed over by Joshua.
In 2011, media houses in the UK reported at least three people in London with HIV died after they stopped taking life saving drugs on the advice of their pastors. The HIV prevention charity African Health Policy Network (AHPN) listed SCOAN as one of the culprits. But the church debunked the accusation.
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) didn’t recognize late TB Joshua as one of the true man of God despite his fame worldwide they believed is a deceiver and one of his top disciples claimed that he just doing the pastoring and evangelism for fame and money where she said that many top Nigerians personalities came to Synagogue Church for healing when they were seriously sick and they died eventually because there is nothing like healing in late TB Joshua’s Church.
Some top Nigerians pastor, Pastor Enough Adejare Adeboye, Sam Adeyemi, Kumuyi and the rest they didn’t even say a word concerning TB Joshua death, they don’t condone with his family.
We had numerous claimed that the late TB Joshua get his power from devil, healing is demonic and his healing water is just a fake.
All he does concerning healing is a fake according to what one of his top disciple said that they fake everything.
Rest in peace Temitope Balogun Joshua may God forgive all your transgressions.
