Adewale Giwa, Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, has explained why prominent Nigerian pastors were not lovers of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Temitope Balogun Joshua, or, T.B Joshua.
Joshua died on June 5, 2021, and was buried on Friday at his church.
Top politicians, entertainers, businesspeople, and women from all around the globe attended the burial service.
However, the country’s leading “men of God” completely avoided the funeral ceremony, just as none of them expressed condolences to his family or SCOAN when he died.
But in a statement on Saturday, Pastor Giwa suggested that these pastors may have hated Joshua because he refused to join their league.
When he was alive, Prophet TB Joshua was surrounded by friends than enemies. Even in death, the prophet still had more friends than enemies. Those celebrating him after death are more than those who are criticizing him. He had come, seen, and conquered.
He had money to buy more than 10 private jets, but he never bought one. Prophet Joshua could afford to build private universities across Nigeria and the world, but he didn’t have one.
They hated him because he refused to join their caucuses or leagues. Maybe if he had succumbed and did what they wanted him to do, they would have honored him as one of them.
A man who never had a spiritual father(s), but suddenly rose to fame. He never thought of opening another branch of his church in America, London or anywhere in the world aside the one at Ikotun Egbe in Lagos, Nigeria. TB Joshua had a humble and submissive heart.
”God doesn’t look at the outward appearance but looks at the heart. No matter how powerful and strong you are, death is inevitable. If God is for you, who can be against you?
”The media only cares about the so-called top men of God who didn’t send their greetings or attended the burial ceremony. Even the Jews, up till now still don’t believe in Jesus Christ.
”Also, in Nazareth where Jesus grew up, they refused to believe in his teaching because they considered him one of them, therefore without the authority to preach to them. Are you God who sees the innermost thoughts, feelings, or secrets of others?
”First, take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Whatever you have here on earth won’t go with you after death. We came with nothing and go with nothing.”
