T.B. Joshua – Could not Prophesy Collapsed Building

T.B. Joshua - Could not Prophesy Collapsed Building

T.B. Joshua – Could not Prophesy the Collapse of his Own Building

T.B. Joshua can predict anything from earthquakes to soccer game scores, but some how missing this one, the collapse of a building in his SCOAN compound killing over 84 South African’s.  Many South Africans visit T.B. Joshua seeking a miracle healing.  Instead what they get is bewitched as Satan does the healing instead – people who get ‘healed’ of cancer vomit profusely, and tumours burst and bleed puss.  This is not how Jesus Christ works.  This is the work of Satan.  See article:   Can Satan Heal?

His followers will tell you that T.B. Joshua never takes money from anyone, making it seem as though he is a poor man doing miracles in a multi-million dollar suit.  In fact T.B. Joshua is the 50th richest man in the world.  No wonder he tried to bribe a camera crew who were filming the collapsed building with an envelope of $100 dollar bills.  The film crew rejected his offer and continued to shoot. 

“But the charismatic preacher insists the collapse was the result of a planned attack on him. Jacques Pauw, author of Profit of Doom, an expose on Joshua’s church, says the preacher tried to bribe his entire television crew. “He obviously realised that it was going to be bad publicity for him and then he handed an envelope full of $100 notes to me and the sound person. We told him we couldn’t accept it and he said it was a gift from God.”  http://www.osundefender.org/?p=187278&cpage=1

T.B. Joshua the false prophet

Some people are beginning to recognise that TB is a false prophet and not the ‘man of God’ he claims to be.  But there are still many others who believe he is a genuine Christian man with miraculous powers to heal.

T.B. Joshua-RomoteControl“I am beginning to suspect the activities of the man who called himself a man of God,” Bamidele Jimoh, a student at the University of Lagos, told News24.

“Just last year, some worshippers in his church in Ghana died at a stampede, a tragedy which led to a ban on his activities in that country.

“Why would miracle seekers meet their sudden death at a place claiming to be the house of God?  TB Joshua has not told Nigerians and the rest of the world the cause of all this.

“The families of all the deceased (in the Lagos) should sue T.B. Joshua,” Jimoh said.

High school teacher Ganiyu Hamza was less sceptical though because he says Joshua gives to the poor and needy.

“He should, however, accept blame for this disaster and not push everything to God who is innocent in all this. Raising a 2 storey building to six without firm support and approval from government to me is not justifiable.”  http://www.news24.com/Africa/News/Families-should-sue-TB-Joshua-20140919

 T.B. Joshua - SCOANWhen will Christians wake up to the fact that they are being conned by a devious man who claims he was born with the gift of healing- “On a French television interview, Prophet Joshua said that he had received this ‘gift’ at birth. The true Gifts of the Spirit of God (see I Cor. 12-14) are not bestowed at birth to anyone, one must be converted to Christ, and even then the gifts are distributed “As the Spirit wills””. —http://www.discerningtheworld.com/2011/12/17/tb-joshuas-evil-doings-finally-exposed/

Among other strange things T.B. Joshua does not eat fish, not for dietary purposed no no, because as he states:

 “I was not born a vegetarian. In fact, when God sent me on this mission, I realized that my work is tedious. I will refer to John 5:37: “And the Father who sent me hath borne witness to me, His Voice you have never heard, His form you have never seen.”

In a week I deliver contrary spirit carriers (Ogbanjes), witches and wizards (about 1000 of them). They are not ordinary human beings. Some are half human and half fish. So if you eat fish you can not deliver them.”

This is witchcraft in itself, his beliefs are of the occult.

T.B. Joshua - Blood of Jesus ChristT.B. Joshua also believes he can turn water into the blood of Jesus.

At the Synagogue through one of the gates there are a set of taps fixed to a all.  The taps are connected to the public water supply.  This is where T.B. Joshua blesses the water and turns it into the ‘Blood of Jesus Christ’ .  In Roman Catholicism this is called Transubstantiation.  T.B. Joshua is mimicking a Roman Catholic priest and following their beliefs.

Once he has sanctified the water and it’s supposedly turned in the blood of Jesus, the congregation rush forward in a mad race trying to get to the taps first, so they can splash in the water and some even bathe and shower is the water while others drink it.  They truly believe this water that still looks like water is now officially the Blood of Jesus Christ and holds miracle healing powers.  T.B. Joshua also bottles his water and it’s given to people to take back home with them.  This whole scene smacks with witchcraft.  No one can turn water into the Blood of Jesus Christ and in trying to do so makes a mockery of Jesus Christ’s death and the blood that was shed to God as a sacrifice for the sins of all mankind.

kobusvanrensburgphotoProphet Kobus van Rensburg from SpiritWord Ministries who passed away recently from a long battle with cancer went to see T.B. Joshua in Nigeria to receive power from him.  Kobus van Rensburg who claimed he could heal pretty much everyone could not heal himself.  This is what the lie of thinking one can heal people can do people, they believe they have power and it’s from God, it’s not, it’s purely Satanic, it’s a lie.   —Kobus van Rensburg – Self Anointed Prophet

    The Bible is clear on false prophets:

    Jeremiah 23:16
    This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.

    The false prophets do not care about the people but look to their own lusts, which are of the flesh. A false prophet has ulterior motives and seeks popularity so as to enhance his agenda. It is sad that people do not see that they are mere merchandise and are sold by deception to the evil one.

    2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV

    1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

    If we do not speak out against these evil merchants that abuse the flock and would deceive even the elect, are we not implicated in their crime? These prophets are dealers that do not care who or what they sell down the line. They could just as well be drug dealers, but fabricating lies and selling them to gullible people in the name of our Lord comes easily to them. Selling a “spiritual lie” is not punishable by law in our society which is worldly.

    Matthew 24:24 (KJV)

    24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

  • The first thing I said to my wife was, “Why didn’t he predict that the guest house was going to collapse? In that way he could have warned the people, evacuate the building and save many lives. How many of those people were really saved because they chose to follow another Jesus who preaches another gospel?

    I “predict” that this is not going to tarnish his image because his followers already believe his lie that they were martyrs for the kingdom.

    This man is stinking rich. Read more here. and here.

    God is exposing this man more and more in the secular media. Are Christians around the world going to heed his warning?

    Many black people are being caught up in false doctrine because the white people are teaching them that to be a Christians means to be rich, prosperous, healthy and wealthy. Now some blacks have taken over the relay stick and are preaching the very same heresy.

    Dr John Mphaphuli who advises you to learn from the SA School of Millionaires how to become rich, is going to appear as one of the key note speakers with Isak Burger, President of the Apostolic faith Mission of South Africa, in the Centenary Hall, Krugersdorp on 28 Septemeber 2014. This is what Dr. Mphaphuli teaches:

    “We all recognize a rich person when we see one. These individuals seem to possess qualities that the rest of us desperately lack yet yearn to attain. But the possibility to becoming wealthy is a skill and not a gift allocated to a select few, nor is financial independence achieved by some form of magic or luck. Do you want your life to include an abundance of riches with the prospect of continuous wealth creation? Do you often dream of living a more fruitful and financially rewarding life? Do you aspire or wish to achieve your full potential in all areas of life? Are you prepared to challenge current limitations to become debt free, cultivate financial intelligence and become money-wise?”

    (Read more here)

    Jannie Pelser will probably also be there. He believes the following heresy:

    Jesus did not come to save peoples’ souls. Jesus came to establish God’s rule on earth. His death on the cross and his resurrection represent the absolute and final victory of God’s loving power over all the violence in this world.”

    “I dare you to show me where Jesus’ command was that people should make certain they are going to heaven. Show me one place where Jesus commanded us to make certain that people are going to heaven. Our duty is to go and tell people that heaven has already come to the earth and is breaking through into this world. And your, my, and our calling is to establish God’s approaching glory on earth and not to focus peoples’ eyes on a pie in the sky when you die while the world around is going lost in every day’s crises to make a living. It’s a wrong view of the Gospel.” (“Kruiskyk TV,” 29 April 2012)

    These guys are walking on thin ice. God is not mocked. To be deceived is bad enough. To deceive others is even worse. God is going to claim the blood of those who they led astray from their hands.

    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Gal 1:8-9).

    These poeple refuse to listen to any sound warning. I have sent several e-mails to Jannie Pelser warning him against his heresies. He doesn’t even care to answer me. Why? Because their consciences are seared with a hot iron (1 Tim 4:2). You can smell it miles away.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    My husband knows of a man who was smitten with TB Joshua. He had full blown AIDS. He went to Nigeria to get healed, he also returned with a bottle of water aka the blood of Jesus that would cure him. He drank the water, threw it over his head and told my husband that he could feel its power. Yet unfortunately he died not too long after that.

  • Robbie

    They must realise… Full blown TB is the same as full blown aids. Both kill.
    Hey Sis Debs! Welcome back. :-)

  • Hester

    Hi Debs, been a while. A dear dear friend of mine went to visit
    TBJ through her CHURCH a couple of years ago. She was suffering from breast cancer and when I asked her why she is going she said because the church has given such good report of results from TBJ. I said, but if the Lord wants to heal you, you don’t need to travel all that way and you certainly don’t need anyone to pray for you, you can do that yourself. Well she went. She came back and her visit caused her such deep turmoil. She did not wanted to speak about it. She locked herself up in her room for days. She wouldn’t speak about the things she saw and gave me a video to watch and a copy of his book on Revelation. I watched the one DVD and all I could think was this was so demonic. There was nothing pure, nothing uplifting, nothing absolutely nothing that I could relate to. I remember the hair literally standing up in the back of my neck. About a week after she gave me the stuff she spoke of manifestations in her and how the church elders came and visited her and they prayed over her and some real scary stuff went on. That caused her another week or more of being shut up in her room. Then she phone me and said to please please burn everything she gave me from TBJ as she now knows that he is evil. She wrote a letter to the Church and warned them that what they are doing is so wrong and that they need to repent and to never take people there again. Well sadly my dear friend passed away and the church (Christian Centre in East London – a huge charismatic Church) was still taking people there. After her death I heard that the Head Pastor had an affair with his Sunday School teacher and they ran away to Pretoria. The wife and elders got in their car to go and speak to them, but they wouldn’t even open the door to them.

    She spoke about a woman who was in the hotel with her and how after one of TBJ talks on the occult, this woman wanted to put a dress on and how she could not put this dress on because it was burning her like fire and this made her look closely at the patterns on the dress only to see an occult sign on it.

    She also shared how TBJ can do (forget the word now) there is a specific word for it where he would travel in the spirit and go through the key holes in a door, etc.

    Nope some really demonic and weird things and even inside the Synagogue there is a wall with writing on it and that freaked my friend out as well. Can’t remember all the detail but yes, this is certainly not from the Lord and TBJ is a deceiver.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Hi Hester :)

    Yes it’s been ages! I feel like I have missed an entire year :( actually I have. But I am hopefully back on track again.

    That story is so scary. Thank you for sharing. The man who my husband knew was one of his employees and this guy was so sick but yet he truly believed he had been healed by TB because TB said he had been. He was even in ICU dying and telling everyone he had been healed. My husband said you could see in his eyes there was something inside him, his pupils dancing with evil and whenever my husband tried to speak to him about Jesus he would laugh the most terrible laugh at my husband and mock him.

    What bothers me is the amount of white South Africans that go to see him. You would think that with everything they know about African traditions and witchcraft they would run a mile. Yet they think this is ok. I think the spell that TBJ weaves is so satanic it blinds almost everyone.

    Robbie

    I am back *again* for the umpteenth time, lest hope I stay back lol. Thank you for your comment, funny as usual :)

  • Hester

    I see he is now coming to SA. Oh dear.

    Oh crickey!

  • My sister went to a charismatic “church” where some of the leadership and the members were into all kinds of stuff from Alpha to naming-and-claiming. My sister had cancer when she chose to get converted. She only became more and more superstitious through time and gave money to those people. It used to annoy me that people in this “church” would listen to Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyer, Katherine Kuhlman, Jesse Duplantis, Rick Joyner and a whole host of their other gods.
    Some believed that God was causing gold to fall onto them. One person I knew fell for it and showed me gold flakes on his hand. It turned out to be flakes of gold paint falling from either the ceiling or the balcony.
    And it’s difficult to get through to such folk. In fact I have seen people erupt in fury when their faith in such nonsense is questioned or suggested.
    My sister got to the point of believing that it was a lack of faith to listen to any criticism of these charlatans or to question their teachings. She believed that faith was ignoring all facts that disagreed with what she and those con-men and women wanted her to believe. I Thess 5:21, 1 John 4:1 and 2 Pet 1:20 meant nothing to her and those false teachers weren’t going to encourage her to believe these things.
    My sister’s cancer got worse till she died in terrible pain. I’m not sure even if she understood the true gospel.
    It’s tragic. But these quacks will one day stand before the living God and be accountable for their fleecing of the flock.
    T.B. Joshua is one of many.

    Martin we should not be surprised or amazed as these people are deluded by Satan himself. Recently there has been a lot of internet activity between cessationists and continualists regarding these experiences regarding “speaking in gibberish(tongues”, healings and prophesies”. The blinded are following the blind as the Pentecostal doctrine has perverted a whole generation of deceived. It is a major thrust in NT that this will and is happening.

    A W Tozer says about false doctrines: “The truth is that the Bible does not teach that there will be new light and advanced spiritual experiences in the latter days; it teaches the exact opposite. Nothing in Daniel or the New Testament epistles can be tortured into advocating the idea that we of the end of the Christian era shall enjoy light that was not known at its beginning. Beware of any man who claims to be wiser than the apostles or holier than the martyrs of the Early Church. The best way to deal with him is to rise and leave his presence. You cannot help him and he surely cannot help you”

    We are also to walk away as soon as we have taken our stance and it is dashed to the ground. I would say that stooping to pick up a devilish argument is giving the followers of Satan too much respect. Harsh? – yes and so should we be against a “brood of vipers”.

    Matthew 12:34 (ESV)

    34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

    Each person should seek the Lord as his or her Teacher – Matthew 23:8-10. If you quote Tozer with approval what do you think of the scripture in 2Timothy 3:5. People like Tozer fit right in. I have been around such people who are deceivers and keep people in bondage using the gifts they have been given of the Lord (without repentance) to deceive many. This is seen in the book of Jude – how false doctrine was introduced to the assemblies of believers. Paul (Shaul in Hebrew) said he spoke in Tongues more than all those in the assembly of Corinth, and you have his teaching on tongues in 1Corinthians 12. I have no regard for people who are gifted as evangelists etc. and deceive people. We are told to avoid them – Romans 16:17.

    I have seen mighty permanent miracles of the Lord as I have sought Him and His Holiness in my life and it has not been a public spectacle. It has been in the lives of others as well as myself, and I totally believe in the Gift of supernatural languages foretold in Zephenaiah 3:9. The unanimous consent The Word refers to in this Word, is the Spiritual assent of each person who speaks with the Lord.

    This is what Paul said:

    I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men. In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? (1 Co 14:18-23)

    You should learn to quote verses in context. Paul evidently spoke in many different known languages of his time. He was multi-lingual. How do I know? Verse 21 suggests this: “In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips (foreign languages) will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.” The other tongues and lips are other known languages and not other unknown tongues which you hear so often in today’s gibberish spoken in churches.

    Zephaniah 3:9 refers to the Millennium when Christ Jesus is going to rule the entire world with a rod of iron from his father David’s throne in Jerusalem. The KJV translation “pure language” is unfortunate. It simply means that God’s people (the Jews) will no longer speak with a defiled tongue but a pure one. Your lips represent what you say and what you say represents the condition of your heart. If your lips are impure, your heart is also impure. So, what God is saying here is that all of his peoples’ hearts shall be pure (undefiled) in the Millennium with the result that they shall all worship Him by their united service to Him with purified lips.

    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (7) If you need financial assistance.

  • Helen Asmund,

    The list you give right at the end of your comment are the very same questions witch doctors, sangomas, witches, necromancers and the likes ask in their advertisements here in South Africa. Let’s see what the Bible says about these people.

    There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. (Deu 18:10-12)

    You may be healed but are you saved? You see, whenever you want, want, want and want even more, then something is very, very wrong.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Helen

    Wow that’s amazing. As Tom says you list is almost an exact replica of what witchdoctors advertise here in South Africa on pamphlets. TB Joshua must have taken this idea for a list from witchdoctors or he IS a witchdoctor himself.

    1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) if you always have bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (7) If you need financial assistance.

    Please provide us with scripture for each of these points above where Jesus says He will do this for you?

    So what you did is you contacted a witchdoctor who told you to “believe in God” and then you were healed (Even Satan believes in God – James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”)

    That’s just fantastic, you were healed by a witchdoctor – amazing. Now what are you going to do about the demons that were put on you? And when are you going to be born again as a child of God?

While Discerning the World does not object to your use of a pseudonym instead of your actual name, Discerning the World reserves the right, but not the obligation, to reject, change, disallow, or discontinue at any time any submission name that, in Discerning the World’s sole unfettered discretion, is objectionable or inappropriate for any reason. Discerning the World requires the submission of your email address, but Discerning the World warrants that it will not publish your email address to an outside third party without your consent.
