to be precise are known globally today not only for their spiritual or evangelism work but notably for their lifestyles of affluence. This has made them to be generally tagged ‘prosperity preachers’. They have as well been criticized for hoodwinking, manipulating and live exotic lives at the expense of the poor masses that they exploit in the name of Christianity. This has made prophet tb Joshua to be acknowledged as a distinguished man of God who’s primary goal is to provide spiritual and physical succor to the needy in society particularly the down trodden. While signs and wonders are daily phenomena in his ministry, just the way it was as recorded in the book of mark 16:20: ‘then the disciples went out and preached everywhere and the lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs the accompanied it”, Prophet TB Joshua’s evangelism goes well beyond miracles, predictions and signs and wonders, He is a prophet cum philanthropist, humanitarian worker and a social entrepreneur. Prophet tb Joshua’s humanitarian effort touches the needs of widows, orphans, the physically challenged and those affected by disaster. The global humanitarian and Philanthropic activities of Prophet TB Joshua show that the synagogue leader is a passionate man of God with humanitarian aspiration. To decipher his evangelistic work from his humanitarian and philanthropic desire, in order to ensure the actualization of both goals; tb Joshua has set up an entirely different Ministry in the humanitarian arm of the synagogue. The work of this arm covers catering for the needs of widows, orphans, the disabled, the displaced and other disadvantaged members of society such as dwarfs, the elderly, physically challenged and destitute. Tb Joshua has also established various NGOs in their countries including the passion for needy in Ghana.
Though the work of the humanitarian arm of the synagogue and the NGOs, the church provides scholarship to orphans and children of the underprivileged with educational support given from primary to tertiary levels. There is also a rehabilitation Programme for armed robbers, prostitutes and for people from Nigeria’s volatile Niger-Delta region. Tb Joshua is well known in Nigeria for reconciling broken families and marriages.
Prophet TB Joshua and his representatives have shown prominent presence I disaster affected and crisis ridden part of the world, providing leadership in the process of rehabilitation and reconciliation. He has visited, prayed and provided material and financial assistance to so many such areas. After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Joshua sent a team of medical personnel and humanitarian workers to the affected area, establishing a field hospital called ‘Clinique Emmanuel’.
In 2009 tb Joshua started a football club. MY PEOPLE FC, as part of efforts to help the youth. Two members of the team played for Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets in the 2009 FIFA U-17 WORLD CUP. Sani Emmanuel, who apparently lived in the SCOAN for several years, was Nigeria’s top-scorer and the tournaments Most Valued Player. Emanuel and his colleague Ogenyi Onazi have since signed professional contracts with European clubs and are representing in bigger stages.
A globally respected billionaire, estimated by Forbes to have spent over $20 million on humanitarian activities, Prophet TB Joshua has been awarded various accolades in recognition of his consistent humanitarian activities. He has notably received the National honor of Order of the federal republic (OFR) by the Nigerian government in 2008. Besides the national honor, what could perhaps be described as the biggest icing on his humanitarian cake was his mention among the world’s leading faith healers by America’s TIME Magazine.
To many, the TIME Magazine recognition coupled with the National Honor of Order of the Federal republic (OFR) by the government in recognition of his humanitarian activities ought to be a great source of pride to many, but not to the synagogue man. He described TIME Magazine recognition and the national honours as belonging to God, noting that a lot of people, Organization and government, both at home and abroad and even foreign missions have been honoring the grace of God upon his life.
A humble and humane to a fault, despite being a global brand, TB Joshua is not carried away by the frenzies of fame and wealth like other Nigerians he rather recognizes his person and essences in life as an act of God. He recognizes himself as a mortal man like anyone else on the street; noting the grace of God in his life as the only difference that separates him from other people on the street. Tb Joshua as well acknowledges that difference to be the result of his early life of lack and want which has compelled him not to close his eyes to the needy. The background of the synagogue prophet shows that he knows and understands what it is to be poor and without money, what it is to be hungry, what it means to be under the embrace of God’s grace.
Despite the various evidence of the affirmation of his miracles and predictions, Prophet TB Joshua is one of the most criticized men of God on the continent of Africa and beyond. Notwithstanding, most of the people who criticize and in most instances persecute TB Joshua, particularly clergy men are said to be moved by jealous and envy as he seems to expose fake ministries by his tremendous charities without begging for money. Anyone who is a true seeker of truth can know in the light of the scriptures that for sure there is a prophet among us no matter the odds. Besides, it has been so with all prophets of God. TB Joshua is undoubtedly a global brand and a true shepherded whose marks will remain indelible on the global sands of time as well as evangelism, humanitarian and philanthropic history of the world.

  1. @ All,

    If people with money give me billions of dollars, I can easily give away millions as well. And everyone will write about me in any website, newspaper and put me on TV. Also I hire people to write and promote myself on the market. And I will have my own TV station blare my name out every single day and invite all the dignitaries to my place and let them sit on leather couches and put them in my own built facilities and great them with the greatest dignity that is available.

    Who’s money was it in the first place ?

    James 2:1-10
    Chapter 2
    1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
    5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
    8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

    • What is all that gay clothing and suits of TB Joshua ?

      Matthew 3:1-4
      Chapter 3
      1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye:for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

      Matthew 19:23-24
      Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

      Matthew 19:27-30
      Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? 28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

  2. Isaiah 20:1-3
    Chapter 20
    1 In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it; 2 At the same time spake the Lord by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins,
    and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot. 3 And the Lord said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;

    A sackcloth, hmmm. All those prophets walked with camel hair mantles, sackcloth, even naked. Yet all those self styled prophets have Armani, Calvin Klein, Star Trek suits and have to be zoomed in close in their cathedrals.

    And Jesus is standing in the back of the Church totally ignored, pushed around, stepped on His feet of some women with their high heels and having breasts hanging half out and rejected and waffled off by men who want pertinently sit on the front row. If He even would be there, that is a big humongous question. Is He ?

    • Luke 9:23-25
      And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

      • jesse, why do you write in such a chilsish manner? what do you expect they put on? in line with the civilisation/technological and stylist improvement of this century. you want to see them putting on a camel’s hair and a leather girdle? in this generation? ask John the baptist and he’ll tell you that those materials he wore was not far from one of the best those days.
        nevertheless, am not saying this in defence of T.b. Joshua. cos every one knows he is such a simple man and the clothes he puts on are the least of his worries. he often ministers with a shirt and throusser. if paraventure he puts on expensive suit, he quickly takes it off minutes after mounting the alter.
        in defence of any other prophet. dress codes shouldn’t be a criterial for determining a false and a true prophet.
        if i may ask a question Jesse.
        in all Jesus’ words which did he call the greatest commandment? LOVE!
        do you see this comming to fufilment in Scoan? then why the much condemnation?

      • @ Doi,

        What love ? I never experienced that there. You mean depression, oppression, and manipulating ?

        Everything was secretive, avoiding, sly stories, fake deliverances, fake healings, lame excuses for people who asked questions, taking your money without blinking or say thank you, taking your time, your energy and just water that did not work whatsoever. You could spray what you wanted or they sprayed whatever. Nothing happened.

        You could talk to them whatever, they listened, then did their own things again. Ignoring you, smirking it off in private. Scheming against you. Not one of things I said was done. This is clear evidence of pride, selfisness, being puffed up, condenscending from their point of view, always know it better than you, lying, deceiving, conniving, twisting, cursing, wishing bad things on you online, doing bad things to you when you sleep, one way conversations, not allowed to talk to others, betraying your own mates to whitefoot TB Joshua, making jokes out of suffering matters, crazy people mocking publically, telling you things they even believed themselves which were perposterous, watching porn, playing evil computer games, going all over the world possessed and spread their inner demons to others, ignoring sincere problems, reading the festerous and applying the NIV translation with 65,000 errors, omissions and text cut out, haughty, banging on the table, talking from a charismatic witchcraft manner to you, cornering you, spying on you, having the phone on while you are talking with them, telling you that they are not God and know no solution but bombarding your with quotable quotes of TB Joshua to let you obey, if not you will be reported, fake friendships, using you, forcing people to walk up the stairs with hip, leg and ankle problems, or change something in a dark room with the curtains closed of those who can’t see properly and so I can go on and on, you call that love ?

        Doi, you should do a study of the book In the Name of the Rose, from Umberto Eco and find out what real love is. You have no clue and nor will Eromo, or even Candlabra, and all the others.

        You have no idea how false you are…………….

        That’s the uncut truth that I have seen and experienced. And what did I do to you any of you ?

      • @ Doi,

        May I ask how much those suits cost ?, He only wears them once as well the fancy shirts. Before they had this spotlight with all kind of strange circles following him.

        Are those suits going to the poor ? Since he wears them only once. Why is this a burden on the people to pay for all of that ? Lets be clear, it’s the people who pay for that. It’s not God that drops suits out of heaven is it ?

        I know of people who bring crocodile leather shoes, belts, etc. These are expensive, why not spend on missions, on the poor ? No, he is walking with shoes with fire symbols in the soles, IS THIS NECESSARY . and so I can go on.

        I am sure that you are sure that Jesus was wearing golden boots and silk robes like the kings were doing.

  3. JESSE, you have taken up all the columns, initial comments coming from a sworn critic of TB JOSHUA.The portion that catches my fancy on this CELEBRITY write-up is…….’.most of the people who critize and in most instances persecute TB JOSHUA, particularly clergymen are said to be moved by jealoius and envy as he seems to expose fake ministeries by his tremendous charities without begging for money’………”A humble and humane to a fault,despite being a global brand, TB JOSHUA is not carried away by the frenzies of fame and wealth like other nigerians he rather recognizes his person and essences in life as an act GOD.
    Notwithstanding the thoughts of his critics, TB JOSHUA remains unequivocally outstanding in his quest to maintain unparalleled CHRISTlike attributes..

    • At Eromo,

      I am not jealous or envious. Do you really think I want to stand in TB Joshua shoes ? What are you thinking and then to know that I would have several people’s lives on my consciousness and disastrous decisions on my record ?

      What’s in a name then ?

      I tell you what, since you are so sure about the capabilities of TB Joshua.

      Why don’t you invite a group of Lipodystrophy patients to Lagos and prove to me that if Emmanuel is with you all, this is not a problem is it ? One visit to SCOAN it will all be fixed, by deliverance or a dousing in “anointed water”.

      I still have another question, why is it that the brothers of Michael Jackson went to Lagos on visit and that when Paris Jackson recently did a bid for suicide by slashing her wrists, they did not whisk her quickly to Lagos to set her free of her suicidal demons ? Or even better, why not do it by “Distance is not a barrier” technique ?

      How come that he can’t move God’s hand concerning Madonna, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus, Katie Perry, Russell Brand, Jay Z, Beyoncy, Snoop Dog (Lion) who do nothing then using their bodies to deceive the masses with their antics and evil.

      Why is none of them coming to Lagos to set themselves free from demonic devils. Or even the siblings of Madonna, who are homeless, drunkards and addicts ? Why not even Charlie Sheen who claims is a Warlock.

      How come that no-one is desperate to go to Lagos because of lack of money (Madonna’s worth 1 billion dollars), being destroyed, broke, or sick.

      Ofcourse you have some lame answer to tell me just to amuse me or even telling me oh they have to attend SCOAN with their entourage.

      Why don’t you invite Richard Dawkins the Arch Atheist to prove there are demons and there is a God ?

      Big mouth, but only for those that poor, homeless and weak in faith must come to Lagos for a big make over and submitted to ridicule to the whole world to see.

    • @Jesse.
      if you say you haven’t experienced the word LOVE in scoan then i’ll leave that for other commenters to testify.
      but for you to come up with the motion that you haven’t experience Love in Scoan then something is definitely wrong somewhere and somehow. you aren’t writing all these for the good of others but for the benefit of those who pay you. cos you can now see what is glaringly true and call it wrong/evil.

  4. jesse- stop deceiving the readers of your articles,you were never at SCOAN, If really you were there for ten years,you would have witnessed an average of 50 incredible miracles on any healing day, thousands go home happy for the divine restoration upon their lives,However, if trully you were there and continuosly fight TB JOSHUA and his ministry, then its purely a case of sheer envy, my friend calls it ‘ why not me syndrome ‘.People who have read your writings on SCOAN, Feel and seriously too that-anti CHRIST spirit went into you on leaving SCOAN.My friend-you earnestly need deliverance. Period !!!!!!

  5. @ Eromo,

    When is this going to take place this so called deliverance ? I was never at SCOAN ?

    With this post I call God as my witness, Jesus as my lawyer, the Holy Spirit as the conviction to your heart of lying here about me. Do you remember Ananias and Sapphira ?

    I dare you and and all your readers to step out and prove your prowess to deliver me from anything you accuse me of !

    I am waiting for years now and what has happened ? Absolutely nothing. None of you have power over me, nor will I allow you. I will stand against you as witness of your lying, fabricating, deceiving, scamming and being a sham. We all know that you willingly have sold your life to Satanic covens, witchcraft and are the fulfilment of II Thessalonians 2, whole chapter.

    So today I call El Elyon, El Shaddai, the Host of Heaven and will make known to the Seraphim and Cherubim that serve God Almighty of your persistent lies you purport about me, because I know that greater is He in me than the one who is in the world.

    How dare you to call me a liar, how dare you !!!! As I am here, all I said is the Truth, the Absolute truth.

    If I was not in SCOAN, go to the stairs where the front building is walk all the way up there, there is a door with a small platform, where Racine, Katherine, Ruth, etc. etc. used to pray and if you walk a bit further there is a view over Ikotun Egbe, tell me what you see there, poverty, houses that are shacks, roads that are sand. Only the road next to the church is tarmac and a petrol station is next on the right if you would stand in front of the church. I never was there, noooooo, I really was not, only in your head.

    Healing’s ? You mean of people who piss and defecate inside and in front of the church, throw up, roll over the floor and are still in the same predicament as ever before. You call that healing or deliverance. The same thing they do in Zimbabwe, what’s the difference ?

  6. Well the Bible said ,”do not judge so that you will also be judged”. It also made it clear that false prophets will come and that we should watch and test spirits so wait on God because He is the best man to say much

  7. People of God never mind bitter people.

    We all know bitter people they have an amazing memory for tiniest
    Detail they catalogue every offence and always ready to show others how much they have been hurt;they never forgive or forget they always blame other for theirs failures or achievement.they never appreciate or said sorry,they are so rude arrogant,and have no respect to none,they are too know at all even they are ignorant,they always after something and if they do not got it they get furious and start a campaign of liar to destroy everyone,they make the self big and important but they are nothing,they have got a shape tongue,and verbally violent,they everyone to listen to them,they spread liars in internet,radio,news,TV,Facebook,they are so jealous like their father Cain,judas…they want to hurt others,they are depress and unhappy and want to make people around them unhappy,they never give up ever they seems fail,they have got a strong hatred,they can not sleep well,they always dream evil. People of God do not mind them,they like writing long rubbish trying to deceive people,write at any how we will never believe on you,you would never stop tb joshua,and you are fighting a battle you know already you will never win that you became so agitate,angry,bitter,hater…people of God emmanuellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
