There is a Man of God called T.B Joshua, who knows him? If you are in Ghana and have no idea who this man is, then you are my friend, sometimes I wish I did not know him at all. I wont beat about the bush but go straight to what I have to say about this ‘man-of god’ called T.B. Joshua.
He is a Christian minister, televangelist and claims he is a faith healer who owns The Synagogue, Church of All Nations based in Nigeria. I came across this man a couple of years ago when one of these local stations in Ghana started transmitting his church services, I didn’t pay attention before, until people started talking about his ‘powers’, about his wonderful miracles. Anytime I hear about pastors performing miracles I become suspicious for so many reasons. I have seen false pastors on so many occasions and my own friend, the late Great was once used by a Ghanaian pastor who had a miracle crusade in Togo to perform a miracle. Great had sickle-cell anemia, always looked frail and had this ‘limp’ so always carried a walking stick. He said the man approached him in the ghetto as he was buying his drug and told him about this move and the amount he would get by agreeing to go with him. Great was always ‘wild’ for money so he accepted and he did the acting well on that night.
I hope most of you know of Jim Jones as well, I have a book called Jim Jones and the Guyana Massacre and I can give it to anyone who wants to read. Just find out about Jim Jones, please. I have heard and read so many stories about these so called men-of-god that anytime I come across any of those titles such as PASTOR, EVANGELIST, BISHOP etc the next thing I think about is FRAUD. I know there are some clean ones out there, I am aware but…..
About 2 weeks ago, I heard T.B. Joshua was in town and caused heavy traffic on the Spintex Road, I was not surprised because this man is a god to a huge flock. People worshipped this ‘vessel’ instead of God himself so I was not surprised at all and I also know how the church is everything to my people. On a single street In some parts, you can see about 8 churches and each building would be filled to capacity with people who think worshipping God without ceasing will put food on their table and supply all their other needs. Anyway, T.B. Joshua returned yesterday and didn’t just create traffic this time but caused deaths. I saw someone tweet(@MutomboDaPoet) around 5am that traffic on the Spintex Road is heavy then I guessed. My guess wasn’t wrong after all. They say the crowd this time was so alarming, about 45,000 people thronged the church premises because this man of god had announced and repackaged anointing oil that was going to be available. In the rush, there was a stampede and 4 people died and so many others got injured, some with serious broken limps.
This T.B. Joshua man is noted for his so ‘obvious’ predictions when it comes to football and the deaths of several politicians so why didn’t he see this coming? Why didn’t he predict this incident so people don’t show up at all or remain calm, these deaths and injuries would have been avoided then. Or God has a selection of what he reveals to him and what he doesn’t? I need some answers!!! Fine, if I am getting no answers, then let me go on! It is claimed that this man also brings the dead back to life, I don’t know if the famous Jim Jones did this miracle also but T.B. Joshua has done it before. Funny!! Anyway, these people died because of him, they were struggling to see him and also to get their anointed oil which I am sure it was for sale. Anyway, they were coming to get his repackaged anointed oil so wont it be just right to bring these 4 people back to life I would like to plead with T.B. Joshua to make this happen and he will be the man. I challenge him!!
In all this, I blame the people, the people will follow any Tom, Dick and Harry who comes around with the name of Jesus and shouts “In The Name Of Jesus”, go and see our churches, most are filled up on weekdays and on weekends. Instead of working, they spend their time in church waiting for God to drop manna from heaven onto their tongues. Stupidity!! And the little that they have they surrender it to this man of god because he would intervene for them. I just don’t know for my people, I am trying to find answers. Ah so they will keep on making the pastor rich and remain poor or what?
But as for this T.B. Joshua guy dier…….
