Chris Okotie has decribed the late TB Joshua as magician and sorcerer instead of a prophet.
Glamtush reports that Chris Okotie, the senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, has claimed that Temitope Joshua, founder of Synagogue Church of All Nation, (SCOAN), was a magician who pretended to be called by God into ministry.
Recall that the Nigerian televangelist died on June 6 after hosting a programme in the church premises at Segun-Irefin Street Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos Nigeria.
His body was interred on July 9 at the church premises as demanded by his wife and other members of the family.
The Burial which attracted attention from all over the world, was shunned by top Nigeria pastors.
Their attitude towards the deceased triggered backlash from some concerned Nigerians who attributed their actions to envy.
Meanwhile, this online platform understands that in a recent video making the rounds on social media, Okotie said the popular Nigerian prophet was never called by God into the gospel ministry.
He said in the video, “What is the truth about TB Joshua? Who was he? Was he a product of Christianity? Or a practitioner of shamanism? Was he a servant of the Lord Jesus? Or some itinerant religious quack?” Okotie asked.
“Was he a true prophet, who was misunderstood? Or a hypocrite masquerading under the habiliment of the Faith?
“When God begins a work in scripture, particularly from the old testament, he begins with patterns, what we call types, shadows”.
“You say why because the patterns determine the flow of power and authenticity of that enterprise. He is a magician, a sorcerer, and calls himself a prophet.”
