God told me about the tragedy at my church 3 weeks earlier: TB Joshua claimsThe founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Prophet Temitope Joshua, has claimed that he saw a vision of the incident that killed at least 115 persons in the church guesthouse.

The victims, mainly South Africans, died when a six-storey guesthouse belonging to the church caved in on September 12.

The embattled clergyman, who said he knew something tragic was to befall his ministry, noted that he prepared his parishioners on how to handle the tragedy.

In a statement posted on the SCOAN’s official Facebook page, TB Joshua warned his critics against accusing him of failing to foresee the disaster that befell his ministry.

"For those who are outside the Lord, they would not know. When you are outside God, you will not know what I am talking. When you are outside the light, you cannot understand what I am talking about. For the three weeks before the incident, if you heard my message and sat down, you would know I was giving you a vision and prophetic word on how to handle the situation at hand. Trials and tests are for our belief. I go by the directives of God," TB Joshua claimed.

Accusing his critics of being "used by Satan," the televangelist said they were just out to "disturb" the faith of his local and international members with "negative words."

According to him, all the "Satanic agents" criticising him over the circumstances surrounding the incident, would soon "suffer for it."

Since none of his critics is unable to help him raise the victims from death, TB Joshua argued that they should stop rubbishing his ministry or risk paying dearly for it.

Those who could not stop what happened (building collapse), he said, should be "careful of their tongues" as "anybody can go for it.


"I have been on this journey for 27 years. Do you think God can close His eyes and rubbish everything here? They are asking God to bring more evidence of whether He is the one who called me. Warn everyone to be very careful. This issue at hand is a delicate issue.

"People are using this to gain money and friends. This is a warning. Whatever people want to write let them write; they will be the ones to read it. I said our God would get back to them. He has started somewhere. He is coming. If your brother is involved, unless he can resurrect the people who died, he will join them. If you can resurrect the people who died, you can go free.

"The servants, the people who sent them; the people who heard the stories all around and those who want to use it for themselves and to disturb my spirit, you may likely join them. Be careful. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Let us be very careful with our tongues," he warned.

Urging those questioning his calling not to sway his followers, he added that they should extend love and affection to the victims and relations of those involved in the tragedy.

The prophet insisted that the 115 victims were martyrs, adding that their relations would see the continuation of the work of God "they died and suffered for.

"Your responsibility is to the victims and the relations of the victims and martyrs of faith. If you say you are born again, wherever the victims and their relations are, wherever the relations of the martyrs of faith are, look for them. Let them know you are praying for them. What you eat; let them eat it.

"What you wear; let them wear. What you have on your table, let them have it on their tables, too. Share what you have with them – your love, prayer, affection and strength. Share it with them at this time. This is what we call ‘born again’ – my pain is your pain. Your joy is my joy.

"The multitude of people who claim to be with T.B. Joshua in prayer – if the same people turn to the families of the victims and martyrs of faith, don’t you think life would be better for them than before? Join them; look for them, as many other things they are doing now," TB Joshua added. - Ghanaweb

Well said panaz. Typical behaviour of cult leaders to cower their flock into submission thru fear. Honestly how can God give u visions of tragedy and no solutions to it then lets u threaten with death to others. Who doesnt know that we will all die at some point not prescribed by TBJ and his juju but by God himself. His juju is wearing off now

VanaGumbura used to threaten victims with death! The true and living God is in heaven and is interested in the affairs of all "men".

God doesn't instill fear in the hearts of sinners or saints. T.B. Joshua is frightening people to be careful with their tongues. Jesus forgives, if they hit the left arm give them the right arm as well.

There was negligence by the church. The building was overloaded, proper construction work methods were not followed. Its pure gross human error or negligence that caused the death of 115 people. We are all sinners (including the prophets) we all need God's grace.

T.B Joshua haasi muporofita hes just a conman. People he failed to see the kidnappings of girls by Boko Haram failed to see his building collapsing and wants to blame it on the so called Air Craft my foot. He only cares about money but you know what they say wat goes around comes around mhinduro yamwari kana yakuuya inouya HOTT!!. He took a chance and said the plane that went missing will be found in a few days nanhasi haisati yawanikwa. I say again T.B Joshua is a CONMAN hazvichinje izvozvo.
