NIGERIA’S ‘9/12’: BURIED FACTS ON THE SYNAGOGUE BUILDING COLLAPSE

Having read through most propaganda of TB Joshua haters online – the allegations of the people coming out of their woodwork with nooses and stakes crying prosecute Him, prosecute Him, at the top of their voices. Here are some thoughts on this new video for anyone who cares to be objective enough.

Watching the new CCTV video from TB Joshua on the synagogue building catastrophe really puts the tragedy in perspective for those who are not already impervious to the truth. The pressure fumes emanating from the sides of the building just seconds before its eventual dissolve shows that something most certainly exploded from within the building with excessive force. The fumes literally gushed out of the sides of the building with so much pressure that confirms the preceding effect of powerful explosives. The pressure fumes gushed out with such high velocity that they overtook a man hastily fleeing away from the disaster; though the man was already at a considerable distance from the building before the incident.

More so, if you watch the moment of the incident closely to the right of the screen, you can observe large concrete blocks literally flung high into the air at a far distance from the building; traveling in a parabolic path whilst in projectile motion. This confirms that the concrete blocks have gained momentum from an energy source (at a point) to be able to fly so high and far away from the building at such velocity. According to newton’s law of motion: A body will remain in its state of rest or uniform motion unless it is acted upon by a force. Thus, the forceful projection of those concrete blocks totally reveals they were given an initial velocity by the violent explosions that occurred. This is in stark contrast to critic’s alleged theory of a structural defect caused collapse. The ‘defect caused collapse’ theory would have been irrevocably established if and only if those concrete blocks were falling from rest with an initial velocity of zero – as a type of free fall under gravity.

Even If one were to be super-humanly gracious to these critics, by assuming the worst case scenario that the foundation structure of that building was weak, the truth resurfaces again that it had for long previously supported the building and hence was in some measure solid. Therefore, if their assumptions were in the least correct of it being a collapse due to structural defects, we should have witnessed the exact point where the dead and live weight of the building overwhelmed its allegedly ‘inadequate’ support. This would have been made known by cracks and fissures in the building walls and pillars. Hence, practically speaking, the building would not have collapsed entirely in just four seconds. If critic’s assumption were in the least correct, then, while the tragedy happened, the expected resistance of the allegedly inadequate support would also have been noticed according to newton’s third law which states that to every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. But there was nothing of this but the rapid dissolution of a six storey building in four seconds to an unrecognizable rubble.

In conformity with the above: a building and constructions expert who also attests to have watched several buildings being demolished during the Gautrain, reveals that a building that falls by itself due to a ‘structural defect’ will NOT:

1. Fall down COMPLETELY FLAT; some walls will remain standing.

2. Will NOT fall down INWARDLY; some will fall to the sides.

3. Will NOT fall down at the SPEED this one fell, which was about four seconds.

4. It should start showing CRACKS and FOREWARN that it is about to fall.

Someone on seeing this collapse said it collapsed like sugar crumbling. A South African survivor by name Van Der Byl who lost his wife in the tragedy insists that TB Joshua should not be blamed for the incident. His narration of the events leading to the incident gives further confirmations of the above points. The points gleaned from his statements can be summarized thus:

1. He stated that there was NO WARNING SIGN that such a thing would happen.

2. He affirmed that NONE of the PILLARS had broken off.

3. He stated that The building did not TILT to any SIDE

4. As they were in the dining room on the GROUND FLOOR, he just noticed that the opposite side BROKE OUT.

5. In THREE SECONDS; the whole building crashed on top of them.

6. HE classified the materials being used in the building at TOP QUALITY, including the steel.

Another survivor of the incident khathuathelo Ramovha speaking to the BBC expressed how He heard a very small sound shiiiiii….shiiiiii….shiiiiii – something like a wired bomb that had to run that wire before it could reach were the bomb is – rrrrrrrrrrrr…….grrrrrrrrrrrr so quick and wha… the building came down…..”

From about 00:34 of the video below:

It is very sad that people are feigning blindness to something as glaring as the truth that this is a premeditated and concerted attack on the SCOAN. How can anyone be so blind not to see that the dissolution of a large six storey building to a pile of rubble in just four seconds is not normal? Unfortunately, there as so many of such people, than those who have eyes and can see with them. Even If many people are so blind to these facts, we are glad not the leaders, especially the president of South Africa who is quoted to have said:

“…TB Joshua should be spared criticism for the collapse of a church building which resulted in the deaths of at least 84 South Africans…”The outpouring of criticism is unwarranted and calls for the Public Protector to be deployed to Nigeria are a gross over reaction,” the president said.

With this comment he seems to believe that the building was attacked, but this statement is a safe way of expressing what he believes while simultaneously not appearing to be subservient to TB Joshua’s stand on the issue. Nigeria, your hypocrisy stinks in every corner and alleyway, the manner in which you cry more than the bereaved.

HAPPENINGS IN THE SCOAN; ARE FALSE DELIVERANCES INCLUSIVE?

One would not blame those who criticize the deliverances that happen at SCOAN, after all, there is no way a man can explain the taste of ice-cream to another who has never tasted one, for him to understand. Even if he claims he understands after the explanation, he lies and does not until he comes to know by tasting the ice-cream for himself. If the taste of something as trivial as ice-cream, which is physical, transient, temporary can only be known by experience, how much more something spiritual, deep, unseen and inexplicable like deliverance. A man who has undergone deliverance and has the experience of it can never be at the mercy of a man with a mere opinion of deliverance. If you are a wise person or think yourself to be so, how do you view this matter? When you see deliverances in SCOAN happening in their thousands regularly through TB Joshua, the wise men or the anointed water, with so much passion, dexterity, without rest or relenting, what comes to your mind? Do you see all these things as the acts of children merely at their play? Or you see an all-out war going on beyond the full grasp of created reason? O how We pray to Jesus for you, we pray to the One who changes rebellious minds and blasphemous tongues, for Him to save, help, and redeem you because you are not to blame who trivialize his great work of deliverance and you have our sympathy. For why should we be angry with one who is not only blind in the eyes, but has been deprived of physical light and gropes about in the dark? Such a one deserves pity and prayers and not our aggression. May the Lord give you light who read, yet only those whose eyes are good would enjoy His light. They who are blinded within are the most miserable of all men. For while a man who can see and one who is blind are both in the dark, they are the alike, but when the light comes, the vision of the man who sees is illuminated, and he sees clearly about himself, while the one who is blind remains in darkness. For this cause we say that it is only those whose eyes are good that would benefit from the Lord’s light. And we do not mean the eyes of the body, but the eyes of the soul. For this cause the Lord Jesus said in a mystery; I came to make the blind see and those who see to be made blind. He came to open the sight of our mind to the knowledge of things divine and close our eyes to all things of this present world. O blind who see not, O wicked deceivers who believe not, O you sinners against the spirit, pray and ask of the Jesus, the preserver of all that he would give you the true light; and open the sight of your mind, because in your blindness you follow the vain deceptions of the accursed one, who has hurled down the souls of men made in God’s image into degradation, and forgetfulness of God, making them worship at the altar of various idols of earthly things; of money, of fame, of fashion, of game, of worldly power. Making them pour the libations of perverse thoughts to the wicked principalities who rule over all these. The worst of these all include forgetfulness of God and denial of His glorious works. Christ have mercy.

Prayer: O Lord Christ, our savior in willing compassion, to you we ascribe all glory, together with the father who is without beginning, and your all good and co-eternal Holy Spirit, we beseech you Lord, to raise our souls from the degradation into which the slayer of man has cast us down through his envy, Let not their dark air cover us, Let not the offspring of the evil dragon overtake us, let not the children of the serpent hiss at us, let his lying mouth be silenced and muzzled, for he has nothing on us. let his tricks be disclosed, let his snares be broken, let his nets spread out for us in hiding be cut in pieces, let his crown be taken from his head, let his power be brought to naught, let his throne be overturned behind thee, O Lord, for thy mercy’s sake, O most merciful of the merciful. Lest he deceive further, and multiply the unbelieving among men. In Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

A fight to the death: TB Joshua

Who is Afraid of Boko Haram when we have TB Joshua?

Despite the picture painted by international media, it appears the pull of a Nigerian Pastor has surpassed the fear of Boko Haram when it comes to tourism in Nigeria.

The scene at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Thursday 12th June 2014 was lively.

The steady stream of foreign arrivals, smiling happily and waving national flags, bore no semblance with the international travel warnings leveled at Nigeria, largely due to the terrorist activities of Islamic insurgent group Boko Haram.

When this reporter inquired as to the reason of the exotic influx, the answer from various individuals and airport employees was unanimous – Nigeria’s controversial yet celebrated pastor, T.B. Joshua, who turned 51 today.

“In fact, the entire flight from South Africa was filled with T.B. Joshua visitors,” a SAA employee told me on the condition of anonymity. “It was the same thing yesterday too. Southern Africa can’t seem to get enough of the pastor.”

Officials at the airport I spoke to reckoned that almost 5,000 foreigners had arrived in Nigeria over the last few days to attend Joshua’s church and felicitate with him.

“Nearly 50 Russians arrived today,” one of the ground staff told me. “It was Americans and Brits yesterday, not to mention those that came from Zimbabwe and Zambia; they must have reached more than 500. They all came to visit Synagogue.”

According to recent statistics from the Nigerian Immigration Service six out of every ten foreign travellers coming into Nigeria are bound for The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).

The scene at the airport certainly attested to this, the majority of people wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the logo of Joshua’s popular television station Emmanuel TV.

“T.B. Joshua is probably the greatest tourist attraction Nigeria has ever produced,” a taxi driver named Ibrahim who plies his trade at the airport reckoned. “I take people from the airport to Synagogue everyday but this last week especially has been busier than ever.”

The cleric, however, has played down the event, telling followers on Sunday that he would not be celebrating his birthday with any special ceremony.

He stated the current security situation in Nigeria did not reflect the need for any ostentatious festivity, adding that he feels what people in society are feeling.

Joshua encouraged congregants to remember his birthday by praying for their nation, stating that the ‘birthday gift’ he is asking from God is the release of the over 200 girls kidnapped in Chibok over a month ago.

T.B. Joshua was born on June 12th 1963 in a humble home in Arigidi, Ondo State, Nigeria. He is best known for his prophecies, miracles and charitable activities, as well as his online influence.

A Facebook post on Joshua’s official page wishing the cleric happy birthday had already attracted more than 50,000 comments from well-wishers worldwide as at the time of filing this report.

TB Joshua Finally discloses exact Location of missing plane

watchtbjoshua:

Here are more details from TB Joshua concerning the exact location of the missing Malaysia Plane

Prophet, T.B Joshua has directed Malaysian authorities and other institution looking for the missing Malaysian plane to look ‘between Indonesia and the Indian Ocean’.

According to him, authorities must go deep in the ocean and they will find scattered particles of the aircraft.

Flight MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport just after midnight on Saturday and it has since disappeared which has left investigators, aviation experts and other authorities in several countries at a loss to explain what happened. There were 239 people on-board the plane. The airline said it did not receive any distress messages or emergency signals from the pilot before it “disappeared off the radar.”

The man of God had earlier indicated that ‘the plane concerned is deep inside the sea’. He added that none of the 239 passengers will survive.

Prophesying to his church members as well as viewers all over the world on Saturday, 15th March 2014, the man of God said:

“They should look between Indonesia and Indian Ocean because the particles of the plane has scattered and gone everywhere”

The head pastor of the Synagogue Church Of All Nation (SCOAN) disclosed that the pilot of the plane ‘lost signal, lost his bearings’ causing the plane to be ‘diverted’.

According to him, “there are some strange people inside the plane; strange people that are not supposed to be inside. The pilot lost signal, the plane diverted and lost his bearings. The pilot confronted a situation he could not handle”

He however sent a word of consolation to the families of the passengers and added that “the whole thing has come to an end; they will discover the plane; particles, and everything will end any moment from now. This coming week, we are not going to talk about it again and the families will know their fate”.

A fight to the death: TB Joshua

A fight to the death: TB Joshua Vs. Boko Haram Member

With so many aspersions cast on the personality of TB Joshua, and so many questions about his genuineness and calling as a Man of God, especially by his colleagues in ministry; many believers have often pondered on the marks by which they can identify a cheat, a false or fake prophet. When Jesus was asked this question, he promptly replied thus; “By their fruit you will recognize them” John 7:16.  Since Jesus taught that a tree can only be known by its fruits, it is time people wear their thinking caps to observe the fruits of the accusers and the accused. A prominent fruit is the outcome of their encounter as acclaimed ministers of God with opposite powers of darkness of all forms, ranks and categories.

This test is genuine because Jesus stated of a truth that Satan cannot drive out Satan. Matt 12:26. He also commanded his followers to fear nothing, not persecution, not hardships or even terrorism, but to face everything with confidence and boldness with the words;

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 ESV.

Yet, looking at Christendom today, it seems that the more vibrant and ardent persecutors of TB Joshua and his ministry are the same persons living in insecurity and fear of the unknown, even when they zealously profess Jesus as their only defender. If memory serves us correctly, we can recall that many churches have fallen victim of the dreaded Boko Haram sect in Nigeria, including Mega ministries like Winners Chapel and others. Many churches and ministers that have not been hit thus far have stepped up their security to first-rate level, to such an extent that the hope of their protection seems no longer to rest in the God they passionately preach, but in firearms and ammunition.

Rev Chris Okotie, an acclaimed minister and vociferous detractor of TB Joshua, was reported to have cancelled His New Year eve service and directed his followers to pray in the safety of their homes, rather than risk being bombed by the sect.

In another report, Chris Oyakhilome, General overseer of Christ embassy was reported to have tightened his personal security with experts from Europe. An insider in the church confirmed this when he reportedly told a newsman that; “The guys that guard Pastor Chris now are not blacks. They are non-Africans, brought in from Europe. They are very experienced and many of them are retired CIA members.”

The reason why these christian leaders seem filled within with fears isn’t too far-fetched. We can recall how the Christian association of Nigeria, CAN, disclosed that 20 Christians and a Muslim died in the 2012 bomb blast that rocked Winners Chapel and the Harvest Field Church of David Oyedepo. Twelve (12) of the deceased died as a result of the bomb blast while eight died as a result of wounds sustained from the gunshots of soldiers drafted to the scene to maintain law and order.

In response to the massacre that buffeted his church members, after arriving on the site of the mayhem in a private jet, Bishop Oyedepo called down a curse on the Boko Haram sect in God’s Name, saying (during the week of the massacre): “We decree that this week is a week of vengeance and God will unleash his instrument of death on their camp. This month is a month of vengeance and so we release arrows of humiliating deaths on them.

With many acclaimed ministers rank with fear on the sordid turn of events, the president of the Pentecostal fellowship of Nigeria, Ayo Oritsejafor, and many prominent Nigerian ministers in his circle, called on Christian faithfuls to defend themselves because the government seemed incapable of defending them. As for the instruments for their self-defense which the obviously furious men were salient about, our guess is that it is not with Holy water, Crucifixes or Bibles but with….?  Your guess is as good as mine. The statement was signed by Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor; Pastor E.A. Adeboye, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, Bishop David Oyedepo, and a host of others.

While all these lingered, it seemed that TB Joshua’s synagogue was off the radar of these terrorists until recently. Yesterday in the live Sunday service, TB Joshua exposed one of the sect member’s who was in a group of four other cohorts to take a bomb into the SCOAN premises. The SCOAN official Facebook page reports thus with the caption; BOKO HARAM MEMBER RECEIVES DELIVERANCE AT THE SCOAN

Nearing the end of the service, Prophet T.B. Joshua announced that a young man had a confession to make. The man by the name of Mustapha confessed that he was a member of the Boko Haram sect, which he explained was a cult. He admitted that his initial mission to The SCOAN was to place a bomb in the vicinity with the intent of killing hundreds. Mustapha, who said he was accompanied by four others, had the explosives hidden in a bag. They sat down to eat at a restaurant very close to The SCOAN, explaining that Emmanuel TV was playing in the background as they ate. At that moment, Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prayer for viewers began airing. Mustapha, who had never been to Lagos, attended church or seen T.B. Joshua before, said, “By the time you (T.B. Joshua) prayed and laid hands on the screen, it was like you were there with us and you joined our midst. As you laid your hands on the screen, you laid your hands on our face. That was when confusion came between us; everybody scattered.” According to Mustapha, ever since that incident, he had no peace of mind. “Since that day, I wanted to go home but I am not fit. Any time I lie down, I will be seeing you in my dream. The thing is bothering me too much. I don’t sleep in the night; I always see you. You are disturbing me. You keep praying for me and laying hands on me. I want to sleep well. I cannot close my eyes without seeing you (T.B. Joshua). Please, help me.” Several hours later, T.B. Joshua readdressed the issue and brought the young man forward again, stating that God had warned him of the impending attack several weeks ago and that he had been engaging in intensive prayers for the past fortnight. “It was not a surprise to me because I have seen it. My mission is to separate him from the spirit that is controlling him to do that. We are not to fight mere flesh and blood,” he explained. As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed, the Boko Haram member fell on the floor before beginning to vomit some strange substances. There was a tattoo of a scorpion clearly visible on his shoulder, which Mustapha explained was a sign of the cult. He further explained that this was the first mission he went on where this had happened as he had never failed before. After praying for him again in the power of the Holy Spirit, the young man fell once more to the floor. Upon getting up, tears were in his eyes. “The spirit leading him to kill is gone,” Prophet T.B. Joshua declared! We thank Jesus Christ for this mighty deliverance.

Here is the complete video:

Many acclaimed ministers of God in the business of persecuting TB Joshua were victims of these attacks, or at the very least lived in great fear of them, this fact in itself attests to the spiritual level of TB Joshua’s detractors, but While they were busy searching for weapons of the enemy with which to defend themselves and advising their followers to do the same; the man whom they have communally and vehemently accused for years without end, has successfully disbanded a host of the terrorists, and delivered  one in the group who happened to be bold enough to enter his church, all in the name Jesus Christ.

Two important questions come to mind when relating this scenario to these TB Joshua persecutors.

  • Firstly, The Boko Haram member explicitly stated that they had never attempted any destructive mission that failed, save for that against the SCOAN. If this attack had been planned in the church residence of any of the ministers listed above, the outcome would have been better imagined than experienced.
  • Secondly, peradventure by the exceeding great compassion of Christ for his glorious Name, the attack failed in their church and these persecutors of TB Joshua finally got a hold on any of the boko Haram member, or he walks straight into their church confessing he is a member of boko Haram and asked for deliverance, what do you think would have happened? They would have killed him on the spot or better still handed him to security personnel for torture and eventual killing because they are good at fighting the wrong battle, striving against people, using their pulpits to launch attack at those they perceive to be false prophets. In saying this, I am not guessing, their prayer points give them away:  According to the curse of David Oyedepo on the insurgents:

We decree that this week is a week of vengeance and God will unleash his instrument of death on their camp. This month is a month of vengeance and so we release arrows of humiliating deaths on them.

They hardly recognize the gospel truth according to TB Joshua that the only battle existent for believers is the battle between the Holy Spirit and the evil spirit; all others are wrong battle. They would do well to learn of TB Joshua, even at a distance, the love and compassion of Christ for even our enemies.
