MYSTERY JET BEHIND THE COLLAPSED BUILDING AT SCOAN: MATTERS ARISING

Hear what TB Joshua’s critics have to say about the tragedy:

 …regardless of what may be said by TB Joshua, it is quite clear to any rationally minded individual that this tragedy was caused by unauthorized and unregulated building work,… the alternative hypothesis presented by TB Joshua is verging on insane.

We all know TB Joshua’s critics would stop at nothing to smear his reputation, they have done well of that profession even without a tragedy like this, so we consider this tragedy a ‘feast’ for their fault-finding brains.  This is not difficult to learn considering the number of articles they have published on the subject – so many that it almost appears they are elated over the tragedy.  In all it is unequivocally clear that TB Joshua’s critic opinion hang on a mere speculation, there are absolutely no verified facts backing their claims. This is not a case at all to be speculated, neither is it a matter of belief. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but not to their own facts. Before it can be determined who was responsible, it must first be determined what was done and how it was done. The order of solving a crime is to figure:

1 WHAT happened then

2 HOW it happened e.g. what weapon, then

3 WHO did it and only then can we address

4 WHY they did it (motive)

None can convict the SCOAN of anything based on a speculation; how can you convict someone of a crime if you cannot prove the crime to charge them with? If you a going to accuse someone of a murder using a gun, you had better be sure the body has a bullet hole in it and this case of a collapsed building would take some time to fully investigate and ascertain. Yet before evening of the day of the tragedy, TB Joshua’s critics were already blaming TB Joshua for what they dubbed “unauthorized and unregulated building work” Before any investigation had been conducted to even determine what had even been done. So much for being a comprehensive resource. So great is their hate towards TB Joshua that they cannot wait for a conclusive investigation to be reached on the tragedy, waiting 10 days seems like waiting for 100 days when you are itching to accuse. TB Joshua gave a summary of the physical evidence captured by the CCTV camera at His church which a commenter on the TB Joshua critic blog put in these words:

This attack on SCOAN is another proof that Prophet TB Joshua is a real Man of God. I just finished watching the Church CCTV Camera play now in the live service and it has shown that a strange jet hovered the building 4 times before it collapsed. Now also in Nigeria. A Nigerian war jet used to fight Boko Haram Has been Missing since 10:30AM on Friday 12, of September 2014 and Was expected to return back 12 PM Same Day, Now check the time difference and verifying you will know that this was an attack on SCOAN Building.

In a related development, A SCOAN visitor by providence rather than by intent did take photographs of the fighter Jet that hovered over the SCOAN building while taking photographs of the SCOAN buildings for himself – this further lends credence to the CCTV footage of the plane hovering over the building before the incident shown on Emmanuel TV.Strange-Plane-1-600x248

Strange-Plane-2-600x355

What one finds very disturbing is the fact that many TB Joshua’s critics deliberately and fully obscure the occurrence of the strange jet that hovered over the collapsed building in their analysis of this tragedy and rather than call for investigation as to what this fighter jet was doing around the building four times and how it got there and who was manning it, they are busy clamoring for the arrest of TB Joshua. To them, it seems inconsequential to the subject matter that a Nigerian war jet used to fight Boko Haram went missing since 10:30AM on Friday 12, of September 2014 and that on the same day from about 11:43 am, a strange Jet was seen hovering over the SCOAN building four times within very short intervals before its collapse with photography proofs and eye witness accounts both at the Church premises and even without. They would rather hold to the assumption that the military’s jet sudden appearance and the rounds it made over the building was unimportant and would rather maintain that the building was unauthorized so as to make sure TB Joshua is indicted and charged for homicide.

If these people owned a lodging over which a similar thing happened is this the same action they would take? Hypocrites! Why would a ministry as wealthy as the SCOAN use substandard materials in constructing a lodging? Even a die-hard TB Joshua critic on the TBJ critic watch blog after watching the video of the building collapse severally, did support that the collapse looked like a “controlled demolition”

It should be noted that so far TB Joshua’s ministry has done the biggest injury to the Boko haram sect in Nigeria, delivering their members, exposing their secrets publicly and continually challenging their activities with an eye of superiority over them. This may just be their own way of getting back at SCOAN.

The reporting of the Nigerian Television authority, the NTA about this incident has just shown itself to be lopsided journalism. Yesterday, on the 18th of September 2014, by 9:00pm Nigerian time during the network news on the NTA, The channel showed the added clip of the SCOAN visitors comment on the mysterious plane, but much deliberately edited out the first part in which a Visitor took photos of the mystery jet flying so dangerously close to the building. What a Shame! I believe this was the reason the SCOAN members were hostile to them from the beginning, because the smelt a rat in their guts. This is the same Nigerian Television Authority that did not consider it newsworthy that the Late President Omar Bongo of Gabon who was then the longest ruling president in Africa, paid a visit to a Nigerian Prophet, TB Joshua; this is the same Nigerian Television Authority that did not consider it newsworthy that the late Ghanaian President John Evan’s Atta Mills, visited the SCOAN for a thanksgiving. But now a building in The SCOAN collapsed (tragedy) and they were all over the place within minutes of the incident. What a shame!

As for those going on about the building being unauthorized, it should be pointed out that even if it turns out that the building did not have government approval, that does not automatically mean the building is substandard. These are mutually exclusive events. There is no reason whatsoever why the SCOAN would use substandard materials to erect a building. Secondly, if the building approval or whatever documentation were really necessary as is now hyped about, the regulatory body behind the said approval ought to have been present before now to require it from the SCOAN and sanction  the ministry then for not having it, not now  after the  building has collapsed they begin to  blurt allegations of “no approval”, After all, a regulatory body did visit the SCOAN to ask it to pay for the sign inscribed at the top of the SCOAN auditorium.

And finally to you TB Joshua; One would say now is the time for you to remember the Lords words:

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19“If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.…John 15:18

Avoid Ukraine/ Russia Region – Commercial Planes – Crash Awaiting!

T.B. Joshua, a name quickly becoming known on an international scale due to his predictions has just released another one. On Sunday 31st August, 2014, during his church service which was broadcast live on his television station, Emmanuel TV, Joshua spoke of an imminent crash of a commercial plane in a region neighbouring or close to Ukraine/ Russia.

Said the cleric, “A region they fight in everyday – Ukraine, Russia – that region. Commercial planes should not pass there. I am seeing a commercial plane crashing again. It will be full of passengers. It will be in a neighbouring region. Commercial planes should take care and not pass there. The regions around, the neighbouring countries. It is imminent; it can happen any time. They should avoid the region.”

This is not the first time this controversial ‘prophet’ has predicted concerning a plane crash in that region. On Sunday, February 16, 2014, he spoke about the nation Russia, calling them to take care of their air space and warning them against an attack in the form of a ‘plane crash’. “I was telling you about Russia; that they should be praying for the young man – a very charismatic leader. He should take note of his airspace. It could be in case of an aircraft crash.  It will be connected to [Russia] just to rubbish the wonderful country.” On July 17, 2014 a Malaysian flight MH17 crashed over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board and Russia was heavily implicated with Pro-Russian rebels blamed for shooting down the passenger plane.

The infamous MH370 flight disappearance was also said to have been foretold by Joshua. A YouTube Video released from his ministry purports that during a  July 28, 2013 sermon, Joshua had stated, “I am seeing a very big aircraft, it was just about to take off and fault started. It means, they could have discovered it on the tarmac but because of impatience… it’s going to be huge, almost 200 people inside.”

Incidentally, also on 31st August, Joshua spoke about the nation Poland, citing an internal crisis that will greatly affect the nation. He said, “The nation Poland – there will be crisis there. The crisis will start any moment from now. It will start in a funny way, it will start with internal crisis. What is the word 16?”

Joshua has a history of releasing prophetic revelations to the international community. He says that he hears from God and is obliged to deliver the messages of warning to the countries concerned. While some radically support the cleric as a divine messenger, others dismiss the prophecies as vague and obsolete. Time will tell as to whether this particular prediction will come to pass or not.

Joshua’s church, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, based in Lagos, Nigeria and the area around it is said to be a hub of activity and a patent economic resource for the country as according to the recent statistics from the Nigerian Immigration Service six out of every ten foreign nationals visiting Nigeria are bound for The SCOAN. He has a million plus followers on facebook and his TV station, Emmanuel TV, is said to be attracting huge numbers of viewers, especially in Africa.

Reactions at TB Joshua’s alliance with Sierra Leone Government to curb Ebola

The critic watch blog assert that it took them by surprise that a country actually took TB Joshua up on his offer of a donation of anointed water to fight the Ebola virus. But we at Watch TB Joshua say they have not seen anything yet, indeed, they have not seen anything yet. What can the serpent that creeps on the ground, eating the dust do to the eagle that soars in the sky? Absolutely nothing. It would do no more than slither in the dust, writhe when enraged and bare its poisonous fangs to no avail.

Below is a quote from their latest article (13th August 2014) explaining their stand of healing occurring through the anointed water;

While we at TB Joshua watch fully believe in the healing power of God, we do not believe that he operates like a vending machine, dispensing healing at the puff of a spray[…]in a case like this it will only hamper the efforts of brave health workers battling this disease.

Consider this statement of theirs and learn from it that in regards to their belief about God using TB Joshua, they are a lost cause; for if there existed no hate, jealousy or envy in them and if there was any hope of them believing, they would have added in their article something of this sort:

We do not believe in healing through the anointed water, nevertheless, now that it has been sent to the isolated and confirmed Ebola victims under medical supervision; it is behooves us to observe and see the effect the anointed water would have, so as to know if we would maintain our former opinion or desist from it.

But there was nothing close to this, rather of other gibberish which further reveal their hate and spite towards TB Joshua. Their stance can be likened to that of Victor Henshaw – The President/General overseer of integrity Bible ministries; who commented in response to a message on the Nation’s newspaper Facebook saying:

“Get TB Joshua infected with the virus, and let his anointed water heal him first, then I will believe he has power to heal Ebola, even though that won’t still change my perception of him as a man different from genuine men of God”:

The General Overseer (G.O) said this in response to a message sent to the Nation Newspapers by one of its readers, Nnamdi Uzowuru quoted below:

Why is Nigeria and Nigerians wasting time on finding cure for Ebola, when only the Anointed – water from SCOAN (Prophet TB Joshua) can cure Ebola in a period of seconds? Why don’t we value what we have?

Another reader writes:

Elesho joseph Abiodun writes:
Faithless generation. How long will you suffer in silence. You criticize God’s work but quickly embrace the devil by bathing and drinking bags of salt.

Judge for yourselves readers, undermining titles, who of these men reeks of unbelief and falsehood.

In addition: If the critic watch blog could be infuriated to the extent that they had to write it as a post, just because TB Joshua sent anointed water to Sierra Leone at the imploring of their government, then they should be ready for a blackout. The reason we say this is that not only will those Ebola victims be cured with exalted testimonies to the name of God; but the whole world will come to acknowledge TB Joshua as a prophet to the Nations and whosoever does not listen to him will pay the consequences for it. He is a prophet to the Nations and there is nothing they or their obnoxious blog can do about it. We know it bothered them to hear that a nation took up TB Joshua’s offer, and they would rather not believe it to be true; but it must happen to them what happened to their predecessors – the Pharisees, of whom it is written thus:

“So the Pharisees said to one another See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!” John 12:19. And we paraphrase this text to suit them:
Your critic watch blog will get you nowhere [in pulling down TB Joshua]. Look how the whole world will go after him.

When you see TB Joshua settling marital disputes between couples who stand in his presence narrating their challenges in the marriage and him proffering the solution immediately, do you think this is where he will stop at? We tell you, No, a big resounding NO: you think that is all there is to him because you comprehend but little of his mission to this world. Assuredly we say to you, that in the same way we have seen him judging between partners in marriage and settling their disputes at his altar, we would also see him also judging between nations of the world and settling their disputes right at his altar. Look forward to it. The wind of this event is beginning to blow, it will come more speedily than you think. He is so above their criticism, calumny, backbiting and whatever they may think to throw at him. He’s a born achiever, and his achievement is far beyond what they can think to fight with the free account of a WordPress blog; just as it is pointless for people to try to quench the fire of the sun by spraying one [free gotten] fire extinguisher from earth, while looking away from it.

For clarity:

The sun: TB JOSHUA: The sun of righteousness giving light to all the earth

The people armed with one extinguisher: TB Joshua critics.

The extinguisher: Their watch blog and its content.

Each spray: each article.

Spraying from earth: unable to confront and challenge him to his face.

Looking away: working as anonymous and unidentified bloggers.

Ebola cure: T.B. Joshua to the rescue with the new Anointing water

Wisdom is proved right by her actions; not words. While they may be unwise who hide their faces behind a watch blog and do nothing but slander the true prophet; even more foolish are those who would reject the undaunted power and openness of TB Joshua’s deeds to believe accusations from anonymous and unidentified bloggers. Of these anonymous bloggers Jesus rightly said:

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their evil deeds will be exposed. John 3:20.

Call to mind how the TBJ critic blog at one time argued that the SCOAN was falling apart because TBJ closed almost all his international branches. How foolish of these, does having many branches all over the world in any way translate to the work of salvation? Just as it matters not how many are in church attendance, nor the number in membership, but how many are being saved; so also it is not a matter of having branches all over the place, but making sure that the branches meet the standard of the headquarters in terms of all spiritual graces.

We did not at all lament the closure of the branches, rather we applaud TB Joshua who is not in pursuit of financial gain to proliferate branches everywhere, only to fall short of meeting the spiritual needs of the members. Blessed be the spiritual shepherd who rather looks out for the salvation and safety of his sheep all over the world. We know that everything about SCOAN takes place advantageously under the providence of God, as accomplished by TB Joshua including the closure of the branches. Recall again how at the closure of the branches, the critic watch blog claimed that the SCOAN was falling apart.

  • But was this watch blog asleep when TB Joshua went to South Korea for a pastor’s revival, where thousands of Korean pastors were imparted with the power of the spirit and after that, now perform miracles signs and wonders after the manner of TB Joshua?  This is not “ministry growth” to T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.
  • Was this watch blog sleeping when TB Joshua visited the nation of Columbia, bringing revival to a mammoth crowd, the attendance of which on the second day surpassed the number recorded of the crowd at the Brazil world cup held the same day? This is not “ministry growth” to T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.
  • Was this watch blog dozing when TB Joshua was invited by the Government of Colombia to discuss with the armed forces of the nation; imploring him to be their prayer partner in the reduction of crime rate in their country? This is not “ministry growth” to T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.
  • Was this watch blog asleep when TB Joshua donated $100,000 US dollars for the social welfare of the armed forces and Colombia, and gave charitably to the needy of the country together with promise of scholarship for at least 200 needy children? This is not “ministry growth” to T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.
  • Was this watch blog snoozing when TBJ was presented an award by the armed forces of the nation of Colombia for touching their nation with a touch of heaven’s power, love and provision? This is not “ministry growth” to T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.

Though all these happened in a ministry in less than six months, together with the continuing healing and deliverance at the Headquarters in T.B. Joshua’s absence. All of these are not “ministry growth” to T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.

Recently, they took their occupation of derision further by making mockery about T.B. Joshua’s desire to send the anointed water to the affected countries of the Ebola virus at the capacity of the government of the affected countries.

Nevertheless, having mocked to their heart’s content:

  • Did this watch blog then go to sleep when the Government of Sierra Leone officially requested for T.B. Joshua’s help with the deadly plague?
  • Were they sleeping as he now responds with sending four thousand bottles of anointed water for their relief at the cost of $50,000 dollars, and sent $50,000 US dollars for the physical needs of the afflicted? Totaling $100,000 US dollars spent?  Yet all these are not “ministry growth” for T.B. Joshua’s critics, but the opening of branches all over the world.

Let us (who believe) wait in faith for the result of this spiritual and financial aid T.B. Joshua has given to the nation of Sierra Leone (Not at all meaning that T.B. Joshua’s critics should wait). For we know also that TBJ’s critics will still not believe, even after the government of Sierra Leone testify about the healing power in the anointed water on the Ebola victims. As Abraham told the rich man while he burned in hell saying:

If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.” Luke 16:31.

Will a man Rob TB Joshua? Yet they have robbed him.

There are those who take upon themselves to malign their fellows, there are those who take upon themselves to badmouth their peers, there are those who take upon themselves to criticize their colleagues; and for all these, there shall not one escape the wrath to come.

If there is great punishment in view if such persist; where will they thus appear who take upon themselves to slander Men of God who have a covenant with God?

It matters not whether the Man of God is true or false.

The Christian ought not to say anything behind his brothers back with the object of calumniating him, for this is slander, even if what is said is true.

A good man becomes guilty of theft even if what he stole is another thief’s possessions. Many do not even know that a man who is guilty of slander is in the sight of God also a Thief.

You may ask how? Here is one reason to consider:

It is written in the commandments: Thou shalt not steal, but before the eyes of the law, a man to steal must take a thing that can be seen with eyes of flesh, without the knowledge or consent of him to whom the thing belongs.

But the things that men do not see with eyes of flesh are of more worth than the things that man can see.

A man’s good name is worth a thousand mines of gold (Prov.22:1), and he who says a word or does a deed that injures or defames that name has taken what is not his own and is a thief.

A man may easily make restitution for physical goods stolen, but how shall one make restitution who has by defamation taken off from a man’s good name?

The way is for your confession and repentance to be more widely broadcast than the extent your defamation was spread.

Because scripture says the thief when he is caught is made to restore seven fold. (Prov 6:30-31).

It is either this manner of repentance or devouring fire and outer darkness hereafter.

See into what sea of misery you slanderers (critics) are plunged in.

Don’t forget; a good man who speaks evil behind his neighbor’s back is guilty of slander, even if what is said is true.

This is a sad news for slanderers, because even If what they say behind their neighbor were true, if they do not repent of it, they will be condemned to the outer darkness for slander.

Then if what they say is false even in the smallest degree; perhaps there is something worse than the outer darkness; only Jesus knows their destiny.

There is nothing anyone can say now about TB Joshua that others will not know more about because he does nothing in secret.

Except that person is the only one with eyes in the world.

All who have heard of TB Joshua are already convinced of a lie about him or the truth; and this of their own accord from what they have seen and heard.

Neither those who speak well of him nor those who speak evil of him are given the privilege of convincing anyone because the use of words in description of TB Joshua is not even “Half-enough”.

That privilege of convincing people is the sole duty of his good works; which no form of speech and writing can adequately convey.

While the privilege of converting rebellious minds and blasphemous tounges is reserved for God.

It is like a man, who after he was blinded by the sun, expected his neighbors to believe that the sun is evil, when they all use solar energy for their cooking and lighting.

So why would anyone incur wrath, suffering, and eternal punishment for lies, when he does not even have the privilege of being believed?

Whoever says he believes you, says so in reality because of pre-conceived notions similar to yours.

Whoever does not believe you in reality does not also because of pre-conceived notions opposed to yours.

Why would anyone keep supplying lies for such an imaginary market where there is no real demand?

Apostle peter gives the answer:

“…They are presumptuous and self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil …, whereas angels who are greater in power and might do not bring a reviling accusation against them before
the lord, but these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, they speak evil of the things they do not understand and will utterly perish in their own corruption.”2 peter 2:10-12.

If you would be safe; speak evil of no man, neither take pleasure in listening to a slanderer. Otherwise you that hear too shall be responsible for the sin of him that speaks the evil, if you believe the slander you hear.

This is because in believing, you will have a grudge against your brother. That is how you become responsible for the sin of him that speaks the evil.

TB Joshua himself gives the cure for your sickness of slander and backbiting in these words:

Learn how to speak well of others, not only in their face, but also behind their backs. – TB Joshua.

We say this also for the benefit of commenters on this site who in their quest of defending TB Joshua or correcting the slanderers, get infuriated to the extent of making abusive comments and also raining curses on the accusers.

In this which you do, are you not also disobeying the prophet you seek to defend?

TB Joshua taught us saying: Let others hate you, not you; let others intimidate you, not you, Let others Judge you, not you.

No doubt, they have hated the prophet and judged him, but you yourselves have hated them and judged them, while trying to correct them.

Do you not realize that you have yourselves contracted the sickness you are trying to cure?

Do not the words of scripture now apply to you: Physician heal thyself? (Luke 4:23).

May our repentance be swift and come quickly.

Grace and peace.

The uncut truth about TB Joshua and SCOAN
