Repost: A TB Joshua worship song: everything about him is good?

One from the archives:

A couple of weeks ago a commenter mentioned a video showing children at SCOAN singing a song of praise to TB Joshua. Some disciples quickly denied that this ever happened, but another commenter had the video and kindly sent it in. Here is a clip of the “TB Joshua Worship Song”.

The lyrics are as follows:

The Synagogue Church is a training ground,
where the holy spirit is flowing
through his anointed servant TB Joshua
The Man of God

Everything about it is part of our lives
Everything about him is good

Is there any other church in the world where the pastor is worshiped in such a way?

  1. What about this is worship? If I may ask, What is ur definition of worship? What in the lyrics portray worship? If it is not a bad motive, what else could be behind what you are doing?

    • Motive: 1. To rescue people from falling into the trap of a spiritually toxic cult that often destroys relationships (including marriages), and leads people to further illness and even death because of false teachings.
      2. To expose rampant lies with the light of Scripture.
      3. To call to account a man who claims to speak for God but makes endless false claims and spews ridiculous, shameful heresies.

    • @Jacob,
      Point what part of the lyrics is NOT worship.
      Our professional video editor and distinguished charlatan has songs of adoration to himself

    • Jesus said, there is none that is good, not one. TB Joshua is a sinner like everyone born of a woman except Jesus our Savior. He ought to know better than allowing lyrics of his goodness.

    • i even don’t get this blog…… so why do they even keep watching don’t they go to church ¿¿¿

  2. If they said everything about him is bad? What would it had been. When God created all that he had to he said it was very good. (Gen 1) Was that worship? Solomon wrote the Songs of Solomon to a real woman, was that the worship of the woman?

      • @tbjoshuawatch
        And wherever he goes he does good
        Acts 10:38
        Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
        38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

      • This is really a satanic forum.TB Joshua doesn’t even know u ppl hating him exist..thank you Jesus for giving us prophet Tb joshua.when Jesus came on earth,He was persecuted,acussed n crucified how much more of Tb joshua a mere servant…tbjwatch if there is anytin in Tb joshua dt u don’t have dt made u to be jealous of him is only d grace of God in his stop crying n hating n join him.dnt be a hater n a lover.

    • Solomon was indeed a woman-worshipper, to the extent that he sinned in a very big way.

      One important difference though, Solomon never said or implied that the woman was equal to Jesus, a messiah, the greatest prophet ever, etc. IOW, if you ignore the spiritual layer, you have a love poem that’s more than a little bit sensuous.

      Is that what you’re saying this hymn to TBJ is? Because that’s kind of…gross, actually. :/

  3. Here’s an irony for you: SCOAN devotees constantly excuse TB Joshua’s failed prophecies with “Well, he’s not perfect! You want him to be perfect! He’s just human.”

    Contrast that with the little children singing adoration of him “Everything about him is good.”

    Oh. My.



    Adoration of a singular leader (or a core group/family dynasty) is one of the top marks of a cult. If you’re singing hymns to your leader, you’ve gone over the deep end.

    SCOAN is a living, Technicolor example of the Cult of Personality, which is defined here.
    “A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.”

    • If these songs refer to tbj why then does he mention Jesus Christ in his deliverance. He can’t be a cult leader becuz in realm cult no other names is mention in their incantations except wen they re referring to their masters .

      • This your question is most childish and inane. Now I have my suspicions about you concretised. You are tbj. Yes you are. You may deride me yet, you can never dissuade me from this fact.

    • The song CLEARLY refers to TBJ, by name. There is no question that this worship song is directed at him and his work.
      Why does he use the name of Jesus? For the same reason Jesus warned us that false prophets would use his name.
      Matthew 7:21-23
      “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22″Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23″And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’

  5. Why TB Joshua and why spend much of your time thinking of what is wrong with him? When have you become a judge against TB Joshua? Did you know there is only one Best judge against TB Joshua? And its not you. You have many things to do? Preach God’s word if you are worthy and not preaching TB Joshua. TB Joshua is a servant with his Boss better placed to judge him. Can you speak of your testimony next time. Accept you can’t do what TB Joshua is able to do, accept you can’t understand TB Joshua and you can’t understand God’s dealings. Accept God has never used you not even in one instance. Do you know anything of what is happening? Many pretend to know Jesus but have reject his power, are you one of them? Read Mat 7:1

    • Why? Because he shames the name of Christ with his lies. Because he hurts people and destroys relationships.
      You epitomize the “us vs. them” thinking of cults. And SCOAN is a cult. You worship a man. You flatter him. You praise him unquestioningly. You are so deeply invested that you are unwilling to consider even the possibility that there might be something unhealthy going on. When someone questions your Dear Leader, you immediately jump to personal attacks. You attempt to shame them. You attempt to shut them down.
      Christianity is not a competition. True Christianity is not a religion where displays of wealth, power, and superiority have any relevance. ALL believers, whether prophets or simple, quiet believers, are called to test every spirit and to refuse to tolerate heresy.
      The other night it took me 5 minutes to expose a testimony posted on the SCOAN facebook page for yet another lie, a “miracle” not of God’s doing but composed of exaggeration, deception, and outright lying. All I did was apply some basic logical thinking, and follow the claims to see if they were verifiable. I will be happy to detail that for you if you wish, but most likely it would be a pointless exercise, because much larger lies have been exposed, only to be met with one excuse after another.
      Why don’t you go ahead and read Matthew 24:24. Linked for your convenience right here:

    • @Gleady Thomas
      There is total logic vacuum among SCOANites
      Why preach to sinners any way? Let God who created them judge them

    • @ Robinson,

      Your quote “Useless people etc. etc.” falls totally and completely apart at the seams WHILE even TB Joshua says on “The Official TB Joshua Ministries Facebook Page. “I mean no one is too good or too bad to qualify for God’s grace and mercy.”” I would tend to agree with such statements, if he would stop making false prophecies, fake deliverances and telling us heresies. But unfortunately facts have proven us otherwise.

      So by your own failure you can’t admit that your understatement is baseless and frankly useless in it’s application to anyone of us. You say we are useless, right ? What does Psalm 139 tell us or better what does it tell you ? Go and read, pray and then come back and tell what you did read to me and the rest of TB Joshua Watch. Then repeat your accusations and insinuations. We will take it from there. In the mean time I am not holding my breath expecting an answer from you. So, that sums up pro TB Joshua followers who clap and show their excitement in front of cameras hypocritically when it is said “Let Love Lead”. After this you can read 1 Corinthians 13 if you will.

      • Abeg make all of una get out… Am a roman catholic, and am not a fan of tbjoshua, althou I watch his deliverance drama sometimes on emmanuel tv.. But you dats criticizing tbjoshua, do u want people to leave him, and start following u? Bcos to me you’re not trying to make people knw d truth as u claimed, but u’re just envying tbjoshua… I advice u to change ur ways

  6. Gleady, yes TB Joshua is a human, like us all, who make misstakes. I gues every preacher makes misstakes in one or another way, because we are all in a growing-process with God. But how can you accept misstakes from a world-preacher in a measure that are not simple misstakes who can be repented, but character-faults on a level that can becalled a dis-order? Why should you defend a preacher as TB Joshua, who has realy bad character-issues to overcome? What if he deceives his members and disciples by his manners and system? If a husband is abusing his wife, should we not Judge? We DO Judge, and we will correct him and help his wife. We are christians. And so, if TB Joshua has serious troubled character-difficulties, as ; abuse, mis-use, manipulation, arrogance, pride, irresponsibility, humiliation, scorning, fictive testemonies, propaganda, controle, self-seeking honor, deceiving messages, doom-profhesies etc. etc. We have the pleight to warn him and his members for the consequenses of accepting such a leader as infallible and equiped for his task as an example for the new generation. If you have no problem with the wrongs in his behaviours , then this means you accept without any discernement his destructive actions. There is no biblical justification to ignore harmfull behaviours and only wanting to see the good of a person. It is un-wise and self-deception.

    • @ Jamie,

      I tend to agree with your blogpost, except on one point.

      There is a difference of people making mistakes and people who make mistakes and cover them up as if they are infallible and use others to defend their mistakes as not being perfect but still accept that TB Joshua is infallible of the claims that God speaks through him even up to the recent false prophecies. There are tons of those people. These are the people that benefit in supporting the lies he does in the Name of God. Scammers only repent when they are put in court and are threatened with jail sentence for their scamming. In any other setting they will continue the lies and keep scamming as long the money rolls in due to those lies and their 419 scams. I hope you agree with me.

      • Jesse, yes, we ment the same. People who accept the facts of TB Joshua without discernement by Bibly skripture, are as accounteble as TB Joshua is. A congragation can not go beyound the leaders paradigm. Except the vew who dare to use their discernement.

  7. My question for all scoanites is this. What has tbjwatch to gain from waging war against tbj? Money? This is a nonprofit website. Fame? We don’t even know the name of the blogger. Envy? No-one has been invited to join the ministry of the blogger. What then could be the reason for tbjwatch to expend ALL this energy in this war of attrition? Believe it or not, this blog is reaching the ends of the earth. A seed about which an even greater movement is steadily crystallizing. This website is purchasing (redeeming) time until the awakening of the sleepers is complete. Then, this website will be the Vanguard for the Forces of the Resistance against the Lost World which is simultaneously the last world. It won’t be long now. You all best wake the **** up!

  8. For clarity, this website is the polar opposite (antithesis) of Al-Qaeda/Boko Harm.

  9. In my experience,allover the world the true man of GOD allways faced a lot of difficulties in their life on earth,so TB Joshua is real the Man Of GOD and i trust on him as the bridge between me and GOD

    • @ Lugano,

      Where does the Bible endorse a mortal man as a bridge between you and God. Is that what they taught you in SCOAN ? Or did you make this up for yourself ?

      Let me teach you otherwise SO PAY ATTENTION !

      2 Corinthians 5:18-19
      And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself BY Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was IN Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

      John 14:6-7
      Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also:and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

      Sorry but I did not read there anyone else and certainly not TB Joshua that he is the bridge to God Himself. This is what Jesus says about Himself and I believe Him and not you.

      Score so far.

      Non TB Joshua follower: 1 / Pro TB Joshua follower : 0

      Could have predicted that, videoed it on camera and mic shoved in my face, without editing the recording and put it on Godtube and YouTube, but whatever. Lol.

    • @Lugano Emanuel Lupondo,
      Bad logic. That criticism & persecution = Authentic
      The Tibetan monks are also persecuted daily. May be budhism is the true religion after all. And I didn’t mention CAR muslims 😉

    • Good for you. As I have often told folks like you, this website is not for your type. It is mainly for people who are still in the process of deciding if they want to be indoctrinated into scoanitism. Not for folks like you who have replaced Jesus who is the ONLY mediator between God and man with tbj. Your type are already in too deep and only the special Grace of God can redeem you all. Take care.

    • Lugano, then your bridge will fail you. TBJ is not our intercessor. He cannot stand before God for you.
      That is the work of JESUS CHRIST and him ONLY. You trust in a false savior, if you trust in TBJ.

  10. well! well! well!,once again with the life,manners and thinking of man against fellow man?.is it the syndrome of pulling him down or making him strong?.kindly allow me to say that any body who is in the blood of jesus ,doing thinks in line of GOD, everything is possible including you and TB JOSHUA can boast of himself because of being a servant of god.excuse me all who do not believe in jesus christ and GOD to stop attacking TB JOSHUA and kneel and play to GOD for forgiveness.

    • @ Kanthumbwi,

      “excuse me all who do not believe in jesus christ and GOD to stop attacking TB JOSHUA and kneel and play to GOD for forgiveness.”

      Sure, but if we do bow and ask forgiveness it surely has nothing to do with TB Joshua or related to him. If what we say and discovered is true, then TB Joshua better bow on kneel on his prayer stool and ask forgiveness for:

      1. False prophecy
      2. Lies
      3. Heresy
      4. Promoting Catholic Rosary, Islamic Prayer-beads for the born again believers and use them. Pharisees used to use a prayer drum and roll it to choose a prayer for the day.
      5. Promoting fake deliverances of people that claim they are already in Hell. Or that Satan is in Hell. Which one ? The Grave, Sheol, Tartarus, Gehenna, Hades ?
      6. Inaccuracies in claims of the #MH370
      7. Inaccuracies in claims about the disappeared And kidnapped Boko Haram girls.
      8. Non action when bombs exploding in Abuja
      9. That the “anointed water” does not do anything in the case of Boko Haram
      10. Using HIV reports while it is known that everyone has HIV virus but is dormant in them and that you can get healed from it with medication if applied properly for short or long term.

  11. Let the deluded continue to be deluded. and let those who have ears to hear, hear! After all, did not the Lord say that false prophets like T B Joshua will deceive many people? I was once deceived by T B Joshua, but today the tide has changed and we will continue to put him under EXAMINATION by the word of God and EXPOSE him for the false prophet that he is.

  12. Satan wanted the worship that belonged only to God. T B Joshua also wants to be worshiped because he has the same spirit as his father Satan. Is it any wonder?

    May the God of TB Joshua forgive you and point you in the right direction. Amen

    • Tbj claims God is working tru him, if anybody is their Hero its shud be God not tbj. God shed be given all the praises cuz all glory on earth and in heaven belongs to him.

    • It is God, the Father of Jesus Christ who offers us forgiveness. Alleluia – “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins” 1 John 1v9
      I am so happy that I do not have to put my trust in a man like TBJ because I can put my trust in Jesus.

  14. @ All,
    Ahem, did anyone notice this ?
    So much for prophecy. So since evidence is rolling in by the droves all over and everywhere to see, we can now be for sure, TB Joshua is truly a false prophet.
    Will we now see confessions of the pro SCOAN and Pro TB Joshua/Wisemen that they are listening and are brainwashed by a false prophet and that they should confront him and Wisemen/Disciples with those facts we see every day !
    Can we confidently say now, if God did not speak through him, that the other things they do are not from God either and that they are fake and false ? Especially these rancid circus trick demon with long interrogation deliverances as we see every Saturday, Sunday in the Aisle no. 16 ? Can someone attend to this or has this to go on and on ?

  15. if only the prophet is healing diliver and bless saying ‘in the name of jesus christ’ l will go and be healed in that name all other things to follow are all of no use to me as long my problems will end thats will be the most thng to be worried with. As l speak l have my own annointing water in my pocket. I wish you have your own church and your holy water l will also cme to your presence. If you are concerned that much come and see the holy spirit in action and let we see if u cme out without confesing your own sin/s.

    • god with us, ; yes, your attitude is; ‘as long as i get what i want, who cares about the source it comes from”? Thats a selffisch attitude. “as long as i get healed by some-one who shouts the name of Jezus, i dont care if he sleeps with100 women and abuses and deceives.’ See? “Hypocrites Always find each-other on the same level of gain and benefits.”. The Truth knows no compromises.

  16. I am extremely satisfied that tbj follows this blog. And not only does he follow it, he also takes recommendations herewith and implements them in his organization. That’s a brilliant step in the right direction. Keep your eyes peeled if you are in doubt. We can only be sure of a change for the better with tbj once he begins to treat females in line with Scripture.

  17. I’m watching tbj on live streaming. Seems he’s out with the latest edition of his anointing water. Why not just ask people to come with their own water packets for his blessing?

    • @daemondada:
      This is TBJ business strategies to keep people hooked and addicted to his religious paraphernalia, you’ll ask yourself what is the point of changing the packaging of the SCOAN “anointing” water every other year or so? It is all a game in parapsychology and psychic techniques to control the human mind and keep you addicted to what he has, bring more worship, honor, fear and glory to himself and make people (including his disciples and Wisemen) think he is some exalted being that is a step next to Jesus Christ, if not at the same level with Jesus himself and infallible.

      Concerning the deliverance and questioning of demons “Circus” that goes on in SCOAN (thanks to Jesse for that word = “Circus”), here is an insightful interview with Roger Morneau about his encounter with the worship of spirits, talking to evil spirits and deliverance ministries.

      Note: I am not recommending that anyone join the Seventh-Day Adventist church (they have some false dangerous doctrines of their own from Ellen G. White that they observe, so be careful) but listen to Roger Morneau’s experiences, you might learn a thing or two, especially at the end, from 2:50:47 of the video where he talks about deliverance ministries, casting out and talking to and/or questioning demons from his experience.

      The end of the video explains how deliverance ministries and their believe that praying and calling on to Jesus Christ to save you on your own will NOT help you -unless you go to a church such as SCOAN- undermines the name of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:9-11)and his finished work on the cross for all believers. TB Joshua himself believes that he alone has the power to totally “deliver” people more than other pastors, this is evidenced by the great glee you see him derive from “delivering” his fellow pastors and “men of God”, and how they run to his church for personal deliverance.

      SCOAN teaches that you cannot protect yourself by calling on the Name of Jesus Christ on your own, or be totally delivered from a past life of sin by asking and praying to Jesus Christ alone, unless you are “delivered”- by them, that is, this teaching is of the devil and evil.

      • Angelica,
        I addressed a post to you sometime ago and got no response. I had wanted to have congress with you on some Scriptural matters. Anyways, water under the bridge. Believe me tbj has quasi Scriptural reasons for every scheme he has up his sleeves. He needs to be hung out to dry by a higher authority immediately.

      • T B Joshua is just an ordinary false prophet who is riding high on the backs of biblically ignorant people like himself. May the Lord Jesus deliver His people from these ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing.

      • @Daemondada,

        I truly apologize if it seems like I did not answer your question on purpose, I must have missed it. I am bugged down with a lot of things on my plate these days.

        Please could you ask me the question again in this post? I will do my best to answer it the light of the Word of God. Thanks.

        -Angelica (Warrior Princess, The LORD’s hammer)

    • And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call – Joel 2:32

      Pray to the Lord Jesus Christ wherever you are and He will deliver you! You don’t have to go to TB Joshua, or such Satan controlled ministries like SCOAN to get your deliverance, or run to some “man of God” or “Wiseman” to do some hand movement, or do “break dance” on you before you can be delivered, or watch a TV station such as Emmanuel TV etc. to be delivered. You also don’t need to break your bank account, use up your family’s feeding money and buy “the latest edition” of some useless “anointing” water to be delivered.

      Beloved, the NAME of JESUS CHRIST alone, called and invoked by faith by you in prayer is all you need for Jesus Christ to come to your rescue. This is TRUE scripture – Romans 10:13 (“For Whosever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved”).

  18. To daemondada,
    It is true that tbj watches this blog like a hawk and then changes things in his church. I have noticed that too through the years. The problem is however that he has no heart change or conviction of his own sins and just adds this to streamline and promote his Babylonian ministry.
    Secondly, I discovered that the instances in the Bible where the Lord used any medium to work through, was a once of thing, a personal thing and not a mass production of whatever. E.g. like the man at the water pool of Bethesda or Naäman at the river if water etc. The only thing that can be repeated is the oil then it is not ‘anointed’ oil, but oil used as a symbol of Jesus healing and that should be applied by the elders of a church who knows the state of the person.

    It is NOT mass productions.

    Hope this throws some like on tbj’s maneuvers.

  19. Forgive me all coz I’m about to post a Jesse-esque essay.
    Elder Jesse,
    Have you forgotten that Christ has given us the ministry of reconciliation. We are expected to reconcile ALL men to God. Nobody is beyond God’s grace. Christ is the First Apostle and High Priest of our salvation. The Apostle Paul told the Corinthians that when they are assembled and he, Paul, is there with them in spirit and the Power of Christ is present they should hand over to Satan the immoral incestous brother (which can also apply to anyone in grave transgressions) for the destruction of his flesh in order that his soul may be saved on the Last Day. That a Christian gets taken out by the Spirit does not necessarily entail that he goes to hell or that he is no longer a Christian. This is why I preach caution while confronting anyone that calls himself/herself a Christian because I am not the one that called him/her you dig? Your suggestive recriminations that I sit on the fence are unfounded. I could very easily have become a scoanite myself when I was crazy for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit had I not had the good fortune of coming across this website. My heart bleeds for the masses of gullible, desperate, frustrated, brainwashed and overwhelmingly besotted devotees of this organization. Our Apostle, Jesus, once lamented how long he had alwayz wanted to gather his chicks under his wings yet they were not willing. He knew they were searching for Him-the Messiah, yet, they could not DISCERN the time of their visitation. Almost everyone in SCOAN is suspicious of tbj yet the cares and worries of this terrible worldly existence override their better judgment. Enter the present day Apostle (Christ’s Representative) to the rescue. The Apostle Paul was dead right when he said that the Jews seek for signs and the Greeks(and Gentiles by extension) for wisdom. I have observed that in Christendom, most folks are so much into scripture exposition, exegesis and learning. Fine and dandy. Yet for me, I have got to have the POWER OF CHRIST IN ACTION IN MY LIFE for my faith to be established. Little wonder Paul said he did not want our faith to be founded on men’s wisdom, rather, on the Power of God. Proper Jew he was-was Paul. I am not surprised and I even to an extent understand, therefore, the great degree of angst directed towards this blog because people are in dire straits and will not countenance the suggestion that this their “messiah” ain’t the real deal. Someone has got to provide the alternative. Someone will now say to me that everyone should pray for himself/herself since whosoever calls upon the Name of the Lord will be saved. Yet you forget that Philip even after evangelising in the Power of the Spirit with myriad signs and wonders and also baptising the fresh converts in water, had not the ministry of imparting the Baptism of the Spirit but instead had to defer to Apostle Peter to come and lay hands on the fresh converts. How much more incredible would it then had been for the fresh converts to pray for the Baptism of the Spirit by themselves and for themselves?! There is a dearth of Apostles on earth and that is why Christendom has gone astray. Paul said to the Jews that he became like one of the Jews in order to save some of them. Ditto to the Gentiles. Now, in this present day scenario, I am willing to become as a SCOANITE in order that, somehow, I might save some of them. If that is what you meant when you suggested that I was sitting on the fence then, very well, so be it as long as it ends in me saving some of the sheeple and even tbj himself from himself. In war, it is a wrong move to back your enemy to the wall without giving him a sniff of a chance for escape. Even a stinking rat would give you a death-bite (laden with Ebola virus I might add) before you inevitably snuff it out. This is why I decided to treat this tbj conundrum diplomatically and delicately. We don’t want another Jim Jones on our hands. Paul said we should leave all judgment as to the right-standing of men of God until the Last Day when Christ himself would prove every man’s work with fire. Christ himself said we should practice the teachings of the Pharisees and not their lifestyles. Therefore, in my book, I will advise scoanites who cannot help themselves but remain in SCOAN to take the wheat and discard the chaff. I reiterate, I wish that I could be anointed as an Apostle of Christ this very moment so that I could go around the Globe testing the standing of not just tbj but other men of God who are manipulating sheeple unfairly. This is my life’s ambition. To be an Apostle as my Lord Jesus was and go about doing good. That should be every Christian’s earnest desire. I’m done with this issue. Safe.

    • @ Dada,
      I think you are wrong in your approach in believing that you need to be an Apostle to confront someone of their lies and deception.
      If the police or the military thinks the same like that then people like David Koresh and all other deceivers, we will have even more problems that we have now.
      I keep myself of the Prophet Ezekiel is telling me and so should you, because it written because of this reason:
      Ezekiel 14:1-11
      Chapter 14
      1 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me. 2 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face:should I be enquired of at all by them? 4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the Lord will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; 5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
      6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn yourselves FROM your idols; and turn away your faces from ALL your abominations. 7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the Lord will answer him by myself:8 And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the Lord have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel. 10 And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity:the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him; 11 That the house of Israel may go NO MORE astray from me, neither be polluted any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my people, and I may be their God, saith the Lord God.
      So The Lord will indeed deal with this, but He uses people to express that, because His people do not want to read His Word, so someone must step upon the plate and address this whether Apostle or Lay man. It does not matter. Titles means nothing. David was not a King yet and took on Goliath all by his own together with all that God is and was then backing him up. He came in the Name of The Lord. Anyone who has courage and believes on the Name of The Lord, will be more than a conqueror. Especially against liars and deceivers. There is no time to allow any more victims to fall in the hands of deceivers and people that take us for a ride. Stand up and fight in the Spirit realm. Blow the Shofar ! Choose !

      • If titles mean nothing, why then couldn’t Phillip baptise the recent converts in the Holy Spirit and had to call on Peter to do the needful? There are levels in Christendom and we all don’t operate on the same grace though most Christians would like to think otherwise. I’m not telling anyone not to rebuke tbj. Go ahead, knock yourself out. What I’m saying is that to end this tbj matter once and for all time, an Apostle is the officer for the job. I am solution oriented and not an armchair critic. Bye.

      • @ Dada,

        I am not an armchair critic. I am constantly all over the place in my vicinity and elsewhere. You have the wrong impression about me.

        The solution is to stand up, submit to God then resist. And do like David did. Get your sling out and find Faith and and sling it. HIT IT !

        I had put up a video that I stumbled upon in the former post, but it seems it got lost which shows what we are talking about here. Here is it is again. So try to post it TBJW. This is a call for arms.

        Anyways here you go:

        Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

        What makes you think that God is not doing what He is doing right now ? But that means we play our part. No need to be an Apostle or anything. That’s man made. Where does God throw Emails from heaven. Here you are an Apostle ? You are a Pastor, And you are Teacher, etc. Man does that. We are all Apostles, and we are All Teachers, because the Holy Spirit is in us, which is All that God is and God contains we have in us and He will use us, but stand up and ask, show me what to do !

        We are:

        But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10

        We are:

        Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that BELIEVETH and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow THEM THAT BELIEVE; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
        (Mark 16:9-18)

        Do you believe Dada ? Do you believe, Jamie ? Why let fear lead you ? We should not slack. Because ?

        @ Jamie,

        What did David wait for ? To be a king ? He never did. That was later. David got out as a measly shepherdboy and killed the bear and killed the lion, because he knew that God was with him. Do you know if God is with you ? Anyone can come down in the Name of Jesus and go to the Mount Zion and make a stand. What are you afraid of ? TB Joshua ? Please. Afraid of his fickle ways of deceit ? His lies ? His scams ?

        Just like that toothless lion the Devil is, blowing up and puff up as the Prince and power of the Air (Hot air) and then coughs and telling you, I am the great Devil and now you need to run from me now in this scene that I just put up to you. What !!!!

        You come in the Name of the Lord and with that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

        What do you want to do Jamie, keep talking here until you weigh and ounce ?

        I am no more impressed by TB Joshua. Nor by his wisemen. Or anyone of them. Nobody. I don’t go around like Woooohhh, Wow, Eeeehhh, Because this is not helping anything or nobody. If he steps things up, so should TB Joshua Watch. I believe and think it’s too soft in it’s approach. No offence.

        How many victims do we want to see deceived and lured into a trap ? Jeremiah 5:26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. DO WE ALLOW THIS !!!!!

        They are no longer after one finger of the hand, they want the whole hand. Do we allow this ? Why do we allow this ? Because ? What is the matter with you Jamie, still being afraid for TB Joshua doing what ? He has nothing on me, nor on you. He will only will have something on you if you give it to him. Why are you allowing yourself to be sitting in your corner because of him ? Get up ! Be ready !

    • I agree with daemonda, there are spiritual gifts and clear positions in Spirit. The Fulness of the Spirit is about Unity in Believe by One Heart in agreement for the whole congregation, AND there is a structure in tasks; pastors, profhets, teachers, apostles, etc. This is the law of The Kingdom.

  20. @daemondada
    “why then couldn’t Phillip baptize the recent converts in the Holy Spirit and had to call on Peter to do the needful?”
    vooke was convicted of his sins back in school. He went and had some believers pray for him. The next day I went to pray and I was praying in tongues. No much fanfare, no apostles in sight. If you look at the impartation/baptism of the Holy Spirit in Acts, there is no specific formula. You can’t possibly argue that only the apostles had exclusive ‘right’ to do so. Constructing such a doctrine on the basis of one event against all of Acts is to me flawed.

    Philip WAS AN APOSTLE, one of the twelve anyway.

  21. Vooke, ; there is a difference between the Gifts of The Spirit, as speaking in tonques, Word of knowledge, profhesy, healing etc. and The Office of a called and ordained disciple, as a Profhet. ALL members can have the gifts in The Spirit, but not all are called to be an Apostle or Profhet. ALL believers can heal, and cast out demons, by Mark 16;17, but not all believers will have a profhetic mantle and commission. There is a difference to be a believer who lay hands by Faith, and a Profhet who lay hands by Faith and Power. by his calling. The anoitings are different., to accomplisch their jobs.

    • @jamie
      My point was Philip was Jesus’ disciple, one of the twelve so he was an apostle. That he preached and performed miracles yet the believers were not filled with the Spirit yet Peter laid hands on them and received the gift really tells us nothing
      Peter and Philip were BOTH apostles.

  22. @ All,

    Just coming in:

    Police investigate World Cup friendly between Scotland and Nigeria.

    Officers from the National Crime Agency, Britain’s equivalent of the FBI which investigates serious and organised crime, are understood to have asked Fifa to issue an alert over potential attempts to rig the game.

    Nigeria is all the time in the news and it is a good thing. Let all things be scrutinized when it comes to Nigeria. Especially when we have all those so called prophecies from TB Joshua that pop up everywhere. So they can make the money out of rigging games. It is time to tighten the thumbscrews on false prophets with football match predictions.

  23. @ Dada,

    “If titles mean nothing, why then couldn’t Phillip baptise the recent converts in the Holy Spirit and had to call on Peter to do the needful? ”

    Does that mean we can’t do it ? Where in the Bible it says we can’t go out and do it ? Everything is possible for those that believe ! If you don’t try, you will never know and as Vooke says, Philip was an Apostle. There could be any reason for what happened. That does not mean, we as a chosen people cannot do this.

  24. @ Dada,

    I would like you to investigate this latest update concerning Boko Haram.

    I said again, how many victims are needed to convince you that you DON’T NEED to be a Apostle to rebuke false prophets.

    It is clear everybody can see it, why can’t you ? So then, will you comply ? Is there anyone who wants to confront TB Joshua that is in his country and in His church ?

    I am calling for the Truth to prevail. Lies will not go anywhere. I believe that this is Divine Retribution of the evil Nigeria continues to do in the Name of God. God will not hold silent, we are all witness that scamming, deceiving and lying must pay a price. Let God be true and every man a liar.

    How many victims people of God ? Repent before your country will be war torn and destroyed. Repent and call out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Nigeria, you cannot go on like this. Let go of your deception. NOW !

    The Eyes of God will not tolerate it any longer that your people will continue in this way. Lord Jesus, I call for Your mercy, give Peace to Nigeria when they repent and give up of their wicked ways. I ask You, Oh Mighty God, let your Name be glorified throughout this Universe.

    Let every tongue confess that Thou Oh Lord are Mighty and that Your will shall be done. In Your Son’s Name, Yeshua HaMashiach. Your Great Name to the end of this World. I speak forth stretch out your Hand, touch all people in Nigeria now in Your Name.

    My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in You. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that You have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one, I in them and you in me, so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that You sent me and have loved them even as You have loved me. Glory to the Father, Who was and is to come, Amen, Amen and Amen.

    • Now you are going off at a tangent and annoying the **** out of me. Can you show me where I said, in all my posts on this website, that one must be an Apostle or any other office holder in the Body of Christ in order to rebuke a false prophet? Stop manipulating my clear statements if you don’t mind brother!

      • @ Dada,
        Then I would ask you personally by this one can you go and tell him and confront him about the error of false prophecies, fake deliverances and other issues ?

  25. You are wrong. There is a system for the bestowing of the baptism of the Spirit upon fresh converts. It could only be done by the Apostles. Philip the evangelist was one of the 7 stewards along with Stephen who the Apostles laid hands upon and commissioned to handle church administration and should not be mixed up with Apostle Philip who was one of the Twelve. Show me one example in the book of Acts where converts received the baptism of the Spirit without an Apostle being involved. Just one. I see you pick and choose which of my posts to respond to because I have addressed posts to you before which you ignored. Why? Anyways I am not afraid of anything except the Lake of Fire and I maintain my stand that an Apostle is the only officer in the Body of Christ from my searching of the Scriptures to end this tbj issue permanently. I see tbj as a diviner in the mould of the soothsaying maid of Acts 16:16 who kept telling people to listen to Apostle Paul. Yet Paul was vexed in his spirit and cast the divining spirit out of the maid. Though it may have seemed that the maid was aiding the spread of the gospel as tbj appears to be propagating the same gospel today, Paul, an Apostle, knew she was harming the message of Christ as tbj is harming the gospel today. Go on and do what you guys see best. I have my own convictions. I think we should all live and let live. Shalom.

    • Lovely, I killed two birds with a stone. My last post is equally directed at Vooke and Jesse. Laters.

      • @ Dada,
        It seems to be hard to believe because you think that it is a “system”
        I have laid hands on people. Result ? Sometimes healing, sometimes not, sometimes falling down, sometimes not, sometimes speaking in tongues, sometimes nothing, sometime instantaneous, sometimes it takes weeks, sometimes no healing at all. Because that is how it is. I make no claims like many do. It’s not my authority to make claims. TB Joshua, Benny Hinn, Morris Cerullo, Richard Roberts, Oral Roberts, Marilyn Hickey, Robert Tilton, TD Jakes, Peter Popoff make claims that you are healed, delivered and then afterwards they are or still sick, not delivered or you die. That is the difference. Of course Kiki will want to slam this because that is the excuse of what he defends as a maniac. Then another thing, this dispensing “power” at will is what I fall over. I don’t see in the Bible dispensing “power” as a fact. Even Jesus needs to withdraw Himself from it all to be in prayer TO ASK HIS FATHERS WILL ABOUT ANYTHING ! And I believe so did His disciples and later Apostles. But in every meeting in SCOAN we see power manifest at any time and at will. Every Sunday, but not at certain other times deliberately. A programme executed and covering everything in a specific time and when THEY want it. I want to know who labels people Apostles, Prophets, Shepherds, Teachers, Pastors ? Don’t come to me God does. What evidence does anyone give me to convince me that He does. As far as I can see, this is usually by self appointment or by just humans that want to call you by what you do.
        Dada give me any evidence how God does this or is it by human appointment ? The Internet is full of them. Especially on YouTube. You just call yourself whatever or do something and you are all of a sudden pastor, teacher, prophet and NO IT IS NOT BY SIGNS AND WONDERS. I refuse to accept this. People make Oscars, Bafta’s, Medals, Pins, whatever Title. It means nothing. People are thinking when you are engineer and have a Harvard education that’s it. Oh yeah ?

      • @ Dada,
        I want to draw your attention here,
        In the book of Exodus 31: 2-5 See, I have called by name Bezaleel, and I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass. He is skilled in cutting of stones, to set them in place, carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.
        God filled him with something special. If TB Joshua was filled with something special as above, then why does he lie, why does he speak false prophecies, why does he make up stories ? Why can’t you accept that that is for all to see, except his followers. And why would God reveal all the crap about you in front of the world ? Is it necessary ? Why would God in saying something telling the works about doom this, doom that while He God knows nobody listens than those that are in adulation of the so called by them called or self appointed “prophet” who can tell you this and that and what is it going to do than putting your jaw on the bottom of the shoe because how can someone know this. I have observed that too. But what I also observe people who sit in the dormatories, there are people who so called befriend you and ask you questions if they don’t know you, this of course could be normal, but also spying upon you. How do you know they are not wired ? Or the room is wired, or does have pin cameras, or wall sockets with cameras ? Have you checked ? Then also you are not always in your dormitory bedroom. So anyone can have access to your private stuff, letters, phones, DVDs, (I have seen people brought their own), my Ipaq with a sd card I discovered was removed because if you do, the program related on it asks for an agreement Eula to say yes or no to. There is a lot of things you can glean off people, by just asking, watching, recording, using people to interact with you, to follow you, and so forth. Have you all checked that Dada, have you evidence and proof that what I allege is not happening ? I want you to elaborate if why not ? I am not stupid, unless it is Kiki that always wants his way, who will do everything to cave in your head with something he has gleaned out of a post and defend his lying prophet at all cost. The way how Kiki irks only confirms of what I allege. The proof is now, I cannot proof at this moment but if I was there I would go look in every nook and cranny for such things and start to interrogate people who interrogate you when you come down there. Also I would interrogate people who are so called “delivered” and look them in the eyes and then let them tell you where they live and if you can go with them to see how they live and what they do. I am telling you, I am on to something concerning that. So why don’t you, Dada ?

      • Jesse don’t talk abt me behind my back,you know where to find me since I m not allowed to touch you here.Dont be a coward.

      • TBJW,I m not calling you names, I respect you so respect back.
        Me and Jesse we are mature enough to defend ourselves.
        I know that you love so much Jesse that you can defend him any how and any moment you feel like but who do you think he is a troll between him and me?
        Jesse is everywhere in all sites ,youtube ,magazines making trouble and getting mad at people who says anything about TBJ he does not like to hear, ask him ,they know him already.

        If you are called to judge then judge fairly.If i m not allowed to defend my self in your site,you have just to remove me in your conversation and in your site.

    • ” Philip the evangelist was one of the 7 stewards along with Stephen who the Apostles laid hands upon and commissioned to handle church administration and should not be mixed up with Apostle Philip who was one of the Twelve. ”

      Evidence Philip the evangelist and the apostle were one
      1. It appears preposterous that we have a new believer with a similar name as an existing disciple and no distinction is made about who is whom. THere was ready distinction in Simon and James the Lord’s brother and the disciple.
      2.Papias of Hierapolis speaks of Philip of Acts 21 as one of the apostles. That is a 2nd century writer, a man who interacted with some of the apostles.
      3.Polycrates, a second-century bishop of Ephesus, says that Philip, “one of the Twelve”, was buried at Hierapolis along with two aged virgin daughters of his, and that a third daughter, a prophetess, was buried at Ephesus. It seems unlikely that two Philips would both have unmarried daughters of whom at least one was known as a prophetess.
      4. Remember the 7 were chosen to deal with the problem of the helenists, Greek speaking Jews. Philip is a Greek name for ‘lover of horses’. Is it a coincidence that when a group of Greek speaking Jews went to Jesus in John 12:20,they first went to Philip? besides,in John 6:5, Philip was in charge of organizing how to feed the 5000. This Philip had a gift/skill in hospitality which may have made him suited for the temporary arrangement in Acts

      besides, and I told you, I received the gift of the Spirit without no apostle in sight. If i preach that some special people called ‘apostles’ must lay hands on you inorder to receive the gift, am lying because I received without them myself. I thought you said you are not so much into hermeneutics and all but you’d rather the power of God. That power came on me all by myself

      • Acts 8:1- All except the APOSTLES were SCATTERED. Acts 8: 18- Simon the Sorcerer SAW that the Baptism of the Spirit was given at the APOSTLES laying on of hands. What else does one need to confirm that Evangelist Philip is not Apostle Philip? I’m done with this topic. Safe.

  26. @Daemondada:

    Permit me to chip in with Jesse and answer a few of your question above. Also, let me add beforehand; please forgive any typing mistakes as I am typing this in haste – I tried to make as much sense as possible while typing as fast as I can.

    To answer the First Inquiry:

    “Have you forgotten that Christ has given us the ministry of reconciliation. We are expected to reconcile ALL men to God. Nobody is beyond God’s grace. Christ is the First Apostle and High Priest of our salvation” – Daemondada

    AND your Second:

    “In war, it is a wrong move to back your enemy to the wall without giving him a sniff of a chance for escape. Even a stinking rat would give you a death-bite (laden with Ebola virus I might add) before you inevitably snuff it out. This is why I decided to treat this tbj conundrum diplomatically and delicately.” – Daemondada


    Yes, it is true the man TBJ can be forgiven as there is no man that is beyond redemption as long as he or she is breathing on this earth; even the serial murderer can be forgiven. However, the forgiveness to sin comes when the sinner acknowledges that he is a sinner and forsakes his ways. This is TRUE scripture. The question then is, has TBJ forsaken his sins? Or is he just covering them up when he sees the world has been alerted to a particular “pet peeve” or deceit or wickedness, then he does something to make it look like he has shut that door to that and abandoned it, only to open another door into the same “room of wickedness” from another direction.

    The only team I have seen chasing him from pillar to post when he tries to dodge the bullets of critics and the watchmen is this website, and this website nails him every time. You’ve got to admire this website for their tenacity.

    This leads to your second inquiry about giving him a sniff room of escape. My dear brother Dada,” you ain’t seen notin”. Dude, you’re dealing with a master con-man, a very slippery one, a “Bill Clinton” type of guy – a “I did not inhale” type of guy, and a “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky” type of man. The only way you can catch this type is to nail him hands down or he will slip again and again. So, you see why this “rat” as in your inquiry above should be trapped with all possible trappings and exposed for what it is – a spiritual “Ebola” carrier that has come to poison the Christendom if not the human race, if given a chance.

    TBJ is so vested in his “business” where the product is the Name of Jesus Christ the LORD. He is so addicted to the glory and power that he is receiving from people around him as a result of SCOAN that the only time, I might start to seriously consider that he has changed, or there is hope of his change is when the SCOAN engine finally shuts down.

    SCOAN is now such a monster that it will take one corrupt move after another to keep it lubricated and TBJ needs the “slaves” aka “disciples and wisemen working in the vineyard” to help him do this. If these slaves aka “disciples and Wisemen” ever leave him, or as much as quit living in his quarters, he is dead in the water, SCOAN is dead.

    This is why he is doing all he can in the way of brainwashing and mind control to keep them. If he senses that one that is very valuable to the “SCOAN engine” has started thinking for himself, he goes into action to “love bomb and shower with gifts and excessive attention” (John Chi took him by surprise though) in order to keep him. He works overtime to keep them thinking he is their spiritual liberator, giving such messages like “don’t tempt the devil to tempt you”, working so hard to make them believe that he is the only one that has direct access to God and training disciples whose brains are so fried with his false doctrine, to teach children to sing such TBJ glorification songs as the one you hear above.

    To be continue…

      What lead you to this conclusion?

  27. @Daemondada:

    Your third inquiry:

    “Someone will now say to me that everyone should pray for himself/herself since whosoever calls upon the Name of the Lord will be saved. Yet you forget that Philip even after evangelising in the Power of the Spirit with myriad signs and wonders and also baptising the fresh converts in water, had not the ministry of imparting the Baptism of the Spirit but instead had to defer to Apostle Peter to come and lay hands on the fresh converts. How much more incredible would it then had been for the fresh converts to pray for the Baptism of the Spirit by themselves and for themselves?!” – Daemondada

    When I referred to the verse of Joel 2:32, paraphrasing – that whoever that calls on the LORD shall be saved. This does not mean those that have not already heard about the LORD, or know him. We need Christian to teach these ones, the new converts as the people of Samaria in your point above about the LORD, who He is and what he requires of them and how to call upon him, before they can call upon him.

    Also answering your inquiry above from Acts 8:14-17 (I am explaining from the King James Version, I believe this is the best translation as far as I am concerned, anyone reading anything else with the excuse that they cannot understand it, is joking with Christianity, period), the “apostles” sent for Peter and John to assist them with the work because a lot of the People of Samaria at the time had gotten converted and received the Word of God NOT because the wanted them to come and lay hands on the new converts so that they will receive the Holy Spirit while they step aside to watch! Please read that portion of the bible carefully, this is how we get in trouble.

    However, you are correct in that in the body of Christ, the “Church” (this is not a building or an organization) is made up of different people with different spiritual gifts – see 1 Corinthians 12:14-16, the body is not one member but many, the body of Christ, that is not your local “church” organization or association. In a true “church” no one is the leader over others, yes there might be varying degrees of spirituality but these are not to LORD it over the others. The one that helps in the kitchen or evangelizes is (as is Stephen the martyr is equally as important to the body of Christ as the one that prophesies, heals, teaches, etc. No one has the right to “Lord” it over the rest of the body of Christ by treating others as second class.

    If you notice, Peter was not the leader of the “apostles” (we might go into this debate another time), nor did he exercise nay sort of leadership authority over any of them before or after Jesus Christ ascended. You did not see any of the other apostles or disciples calling Peter or any of the senior ones exalted names like “Senior Bishop” Peter, “Our Father in the Lord” Peter, “My Master” Peter or Paul, or John etc. worst of all “Pope” Peter or “Papa” Peter.

    In fact, there was even a time Peter was acting in error contrary to the true gospel that Apostle Paul himself had to call him to order – you can read this in Galatians 2:11. Therefore, being member or tolerating a ministry where one man is leading, cannot be questioned, and is not held accountable for his action such as SCOAN is as dangerous as drinking a full cup poison.

    Jesus Christ himself warned us against self-exultation and worship of man in His Body when he said:

    “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” – Matthew 23:8-12

    Some people might quote 2 Timothy 1:1-2 where Paul called Timothy his “son in the faith”, to overide this warning in Matt 23:8-12 that came directly from the mought of the LORD Himself, but this does not mean that he expected Timothy to go about calling him “My Mentor”, “My Father in the Lord”, “My Master Paul”, “Daddy Paul”, or “General Overseer aka G.O Paul”, or “Chairman/Wiseman Paul”, by this statement, Apostle Paul just referred to himself as one of those, if not the main person that assisted in raising Timothy up when he was a baby Christian.

      I really like that one, “no-one” has the right to “Lord” over the rest of the Body of Christ and make them sitting ducks. Because that is what TB Joshua is doing and inside the branches. Most people in the branches are chair stackers and cable layers. Only a few are allowed to minister. Don’t even think you get a chance to preach and minister to anyone. So you are right about the SCOAN engine. Precisely ! Thanks for taking this that I have not been able to express as well as you did. Now I hope and pray that pro SCOANites will see this too and ask the same question. A real can of worms you opened there, Angelica

    Your fourth inquiry:

    “Paul said we should leave all judgment as to the right-standing of men of God until the Last Day when Christ himself would prove every man’s work with fire.” –Daemondada

    Let us again not take the Apostle Paul’s writing out of context. Besides, the main thing I see this website and its commentators doing is simply WARNING PEOPLE AND SOUNDING THE ALARM, and nothing else. And about the case of “judging”, this website and commentators has expounded on this scripture again and again; so, to talk about it all over again here will be to waste time. Remember, the bible warns us to test the spirit and prove all things to make sure it is true… (1 John 4:1).

    For the sake of time let us move on, anyone that wants to read about this “judging” issue should talk to the moderator, or use the search feature of the website.

    If someone gives you a cup of fresh cold water after hours of working and sweating in the sun, or after a long hike in the wilderness, with a drop of cyanide poison, or better still, a flicker of human waste, or even straight coughs or spits into it right in your face, will you drink it? This is the case with true Christian bible doctrine mixed with “make-believe” additions of false prophets and pastors.

    Yes, I must agree with you most SCOANITES got into TBJ’s trap because most were at the wilderness of their lives where they were just thirsty for water and any time of water will do. And like a carnivorous animal that smells blood and raw flesh, TBJ smells this on people and never misses a good opportunity to catch a work slave for the “engine”. Note: in this SCOAN workplace aka “vineyard” he promotes the ones he thinks adds the most value to the SCOAN machine’s operation – mind you this value ranges in different forms.

    I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness – Psalm 84:10. I rather suffer hunger, mockery and degradation than to enjoy the dainties of the wicked or reveling in the house of evil for a second.

    Gotta run now…time is far spent. May the Good LORD bless the expounding of his Word in the Almighty Name of Jesus Christ.

  30. Goodness gracious me, did I type “mought” insead of “mouth” in the third inquiry exposition???
    I apologize y’all :). Pardon the typos. As Nigerians will say, “Ignore what’s written on the car and enter into the car; the problem is getting there!”

    • @ Angelica,
      “Watch your angst against Nigerians brothers, Nigerian are beautiful hardworking people not all Nigerians are as you think, in most family there is always that “black sheep” everyone wants to get to act right.”
      I know that. If I say “Nigeria”, I did not mean the entire Nigeria is a scam place. I know it are certain type of persons who willingly choose to cheat and lie for the purpose of gain. I am convinced that there are many good sincere God fearing Nigerians and who don’t want to know anything or associated about cheating or deceiving another person. God willing they all will change and repent as I have prayed for. Can’t say of myself as a righteous man about myself, but I hope The Lord has heard my prayer and takes action for the sake of every Nigerian, wherever they are and flush out the cheaters and murderers. My desire is Peace for all and blessing, but not by evil gain and deceit.

  31. Bar-Jesus (Elymas) was a false prophet. He directly opposed Paul from preaching the gospel to the proconsul even when the ruler had requested Paul to preach to him the good news. Bar-Jesus was also a practitioner of the Dark Arts. Paul struck him with blindness and this act, in no small way, helped in bringing about the salvation of the ruler. False prophets, from this illustration, directly oppose the knowledge of Christ. They do not want the Gospel to be propagated. They seek the Worship due to Christ for themselves. They practice wickedness and use satanic powers. These are what I look out for before I brand anyone as a false prophet/prophetess. Once again, we see in this case an Apostle taking out the trash with authority. Lord Jesus Christ my Savior, make me your Apostle right now I beseech you. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

    • @Daemondada:

      I will not explain to you this beyond what Jesus Christ himself said, let the Word of the LORD himself speak to you in these two warnings:

      “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits…”– Matthew 7:15-16


      “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

      Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” – Matthew 7:20-23

      • Phew, it is 11:30pm and almost midnight where I am now and I can’t believe I am still jumping in and out on this. I don’t blame you Daemondada.

        Ask away my brother (that is, if our gracious host is not sleepy to be posting it immediately it comes), I have a limited time, though.

        PLEASE NB:

        Do not let a logger-head/arguement ensue between you and Jesse. The enemy is smart, he wants you guys to start fighting between yourselves like the people of Moab, Mout Seir and Amon that came against Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20. This is what he wants we are not ignorant of his devices.

        Imagine sending heavy rain to rain on the second day John Chi had his first crusade (some people in the know, know what I’m talking about)! The devil is a liar and is a defeated foe. Smart John Chi turned it around and quoted Revelation 11:19 over it – so that people will not panic. I am beginning to seriously respect that John Chi Meh big time. He knows who he is dealing with. Demons taking over John Chi’s voice my foot.

        Didn’t TBJ pretend and made the whole world believe that John was still living with him in his fortress and that he was simply dropped from the exalted position of a “Wiseman”? What happened, did John Chi escaped?

        Ahhh! The son of a gun, trickster, con-man per excellence. TB Joshua, I take off my bonnet for you in respect, you do it well. I pity the “sheeples” that you deceive into following you like zombies, especially those living with you that call themselves disciples/wisemen, not knowing that they are glorified slaves in the SCOAN plantation aka “vineyard of the “lord”, lord TB Joshua, that is “.

        -Angelica, the God’s Sword of Fire.

      • @ Angelica,
        ” I am beginning to seriously respect that John Chi Meh big time.”
        I am concerned that you endorse John Chi. From quite a few videos that I have studied about John Chi’s latest crusade, I see he is doing the same as his “daddy” TB Joshua. Especially two videos in where he is “trying” to deliver one girl and this particular girl is using here own will to scream on the top of her voice and grunts. This I know was NOT a demon, but done by self will. You can find this video on YouTube. Secondly a video about a man that cannot walk and uses sticks with a knee of where the kneecap has shifted upwards and claims this due to an accident and that is why he can’t walk. I did enquire a hospital about the patellar dislocation that he claimed he had. In where I was confirmed that you can walk with this condition without aid. In the video you will see that before and after healing that the shifted kneecap is still as it is and he starts to walk, but later in the video you see he is wearing a shorts in where you can’t see his knee cap. To my opinion this man is not supernaturally healed but just used for this purpose to bring an entire stadium into a frenzy. Mind you I believe in supernatural healing but this is not one of them, it is a scam. Now I am going to say another thing. The Nigerian girls that are “kidnapped” are not kidnapped, it is a Nigerian scam to draw the eyes of the world towards them and nothing else. The “four” that escaped a few hours ago, refused to talk how they escaped. This is used to divert about certain things that is going on there. I am telling you now, this will be one of the biggest scams the world has ever seen and Satan is conducting his last Symphony on the world scene that is happening at the same time in different places to shift certain things into place to do a final onslaught to destroy millions of people, but God is allowing this to a certain extend to fulfill His end time plan of Salvation and we will see a huge and massively shift taking place as we progress in time which the world has never seen before. At a price. A very costly price. Again do not be fooled by anyone and keep your eyes on Jesus and receive instruction from Him alone. The last sentence is for all of you. God bless.

      • @ Angelica,
        Ps. Just want to add. As I said you can walk without a patella (knee cap) the patella is only there for protection, but some people do find it hard to become stable thou if they have to have this removed, so thy would have to have a brace fitted which does the job too.

  33. I just wanted to be sure since I keep hearing warlike names from you. I believe I have addressed all your posts on this thread. I must go now yet I will meet you again ASAP.

  34. @ All,
    On a side note. What is this ????
    Augustine “Austin” Amamchukwu Ejide (born 8 April 1984) is a Nigerian football goalkeeper. His name, Amamchukwu, means “Do I know God´s wish?

    Nigerian goalkeeper Austin Ejide scored a freak own goal against Scotland on Wednesday night – just 24 hours after their friendly was in doubt over match-fixing fears.
    The Scottish FA has been warned that the clash at Craven Cottage could be targeted after an alert by the National Crime Agency, although it went ahead regardless.

  35. @ All,
    Let me write now something.
    TB Joshua lied about lying… Here is a something to think about. A aeroplane filled with chinese people was dflyingthrough the Malaysian airspace one day, on a prophet in Lagos claimed that he was the only pastor that God that to him that it would crash . The pilots caught up in the beautiful scenery or taking off, loses control and crashes into the Ocean. A Lying prophet hears the horrible crash “through” God and rushes out to discover the wreckage and says it has crashed after take off. Finding the dead chinese passengers in his vision, he buries them with sly words of deception in thinking this will put me on the world scene and so I can deceive many others who have not been deceived yet. Let me quickly claim that I am the chosen one that will tell the world. “Snicker, Snicker.”
    The next day, the police come to the church to question the so called “genuine” prophet man. “So you buried all the dead chinese ?” asked the police officer. “Were they all dead?” Where are they ? All of sudden silence falls. Quickly the so called “genuine” prophet says, by the end of this week nobody will talk about it and “any moment from now” the people of China will know their fate.
    The false prophet answered, “Some said they weren’t, but you know how other fake prophets lie. Everything I say comes to pass.
    Why is everybody shuffling this under the carpet and ignoring this now ? Time for accountability Joshua and your lying scam empire, YOU LIED ! YOU fell down the basket, you have been found unreliable. I can see it, everybody can see, now confess and stop covering up ! And above that you used the Name of God to justify your false prophecies to deceive the world of your lies, while your should not have and put people on the internet to defend you for you scams !
    And you Nigeria and the those that are in the Government the same counts for you, God sees you all with the Seven Spirits and sees your ways, Repent, from your works. Stop using people with dark glasses on the the internet of whom you can’t see their eyes and their inner souls when you ask questions of their genuineness !!!! Don’t think you can get away with it.
    For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Luke 8:17

  36. I am gonna preempt tbj’s next BIG deceit by giving a little “prophecy” of my own. The next “spiritual material” that SCOAN are gonna bring forth is a graven image probably in his own likeness and not that of the Roman Catholic idols. You all should keep your eyes peeled. He will pass it off as an aid to help you have maximum concentration whilst meditating/praying. LOL!

  37. “Also answering your inquiry above from Acts 8:14-17 (I am explaining from the King James Version, I believe this is the best translation as far as I am concerned, anyone reading anything else with the excuse that they cannot understand it, is joking with Christianity, period), the “apostles” sent for Peter and John to assist them with the work because a lot of the People of Samaria at the time had gotten converted and received the Word of God NOT because the wanted them to come and lay hands on the new converts so that they will receive the Holy Spirit while they step aside to watch! Please read that portion of the bible carefully, this is how we get in trouble.”- Angelica.
    You are wrong. ALL the Apostles remained in Jerusalem. The rest of the Church were SCATTERED! ACTS 8: 1. There were no Apostles in Samaria in this particular event. It was Evangelist Philip, one of the 7 Stewards who was led by the Spirit in the Dispersal to the Samaritans. When you say that the Apostles “sent for Peter and John” what you are inferring is that some or all the Apostles were in Samaria!!! This is a false understanding of this very clear Scriptural passage! I also read The King James Version. Apostles are the ONLY officers in the Church sanctioned to impart the Baptism of the Spirit on Christians! Take the Word of God literally and not figuratively brethren!

    • It’s odd that after all my Scriptural Proofs supplied to my brethren on this website to show that the Baptism of the Spirit can only be executed by the Apostles, these same brethren of mine remain unbelieving! Yet these same brethren of mine EXPECT SCOANITES to accept their own overwhelming Scriptural evidence with regard to the Evil-Standing of TBJ/SCOAN! YOU COULD NOT MAKE THIS UP! Take care folks. All the best. I love you all you ********!

      • Hi Dada,
        I have not followed all your writings because of time, but want to answer you on your mail of May 31, 2014 at 3:25 am . So I hope that I understood it correctly:
        Jesus is the only one that can baptize you in His Holy Spirit, with or without anyone praying for you. You can ask Him directly for that, provided that you obey the Lord.
        The Bible says;
        … “ the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him” – Acts 5:32
        “I baptize you with water for repentance”, John said. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He (Jesus) will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire” – Mathew 3:11.
        “I baptize you with water, but he (Jesus) will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” – Mark 1:8.
        Then Peter said unto them, “Repent and be baptized in water every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” – Acts 2:38
        No apostles needed for this.

      • @daemondada
        “It’s odd that after all my Scriptural Proof”
        It is not odd since you have no scriptural proof whatsoever. A quick one, DEFINE an apostle. Who is an apostle?

  38. Hi Dada,
    Just something interesting.
    The Old Testament (Tenach) is wrongly translated as Testament. It should be Covenant or older Covenant. It is the Covenant between a loving God and his people. So it is a Covenant. The New Testament should then also be translated as the New Covenant. “New “ is also a wrong translation and should be translated as the “Renewed” Covenant. So the Renewed Covenant (New Testament) is NOT separate from the Old Covenant. It is the old sacrificial system just renewed in Jesus. Jesus has finished of the old sacrifitial system and became the Lamb of God, who was sacrificed to take away the sins of the world, once and for all. So the sacrificial offering has stopped, but the Ten Commandment not. Jesus said, “Keep my Commandments” …… “and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”…….etc. etc. – Mathew 28:20.
    So nothing has changed because,
    “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever “– Hebrews 13:8.

  39. …. “for our God is a consuming fire….” – Hebrews 12:29.
    …. “God is spirit….” – John 4:24.
    …. “God is love….” -1 John 4:8.
    Just something about the Baptism in the Holy Spirit;
    God appeared to Moses in the burning bush as FIRE (God who is Fire and Spirit),
    Then God appeared to Moses on the mountain as a burning FIRE (God who is Fire and Spirit),
    Then Moses build the tabernacle on God instruction and the burning FIRE (God who is Fire and Spirit) came down from the mountain and sat on the Arc of the Covenant,
    Then the FIRE (God who is Fire and Spirit) came from the Holy of Holies and consumed the offering on the altar,
    BUT THERE WAS DIFFERENT FIRE IN THE CAMP ALREADY (The Death of Nadab and Abihu – Lev 10)
    Then Jesus came and were raised to heaven … great is the mystery of godliness: “God was manifest in the flesh”…. 1 Timothy 3:16
    Then after that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit and He came and sat on the disciples’ heads and tongues of FIRE (God who is Fire and Spirit).
    Again it is the same pattern as in the Tenach. The true FIRE fell on the disciples and they were baptized in the Holy Spirit.
    We need to be very careful that we do not allow false fire in the camp!!!
    A different baptism in the “Holy Spirit” – 2 Corinthians 11:4

  40. vooke,
    Once again you display your penchant for picking and choosing which of my posts to respond to. I asked you to show me just one example in the Bible were the Holy Spirit Baptism was imparted on Christians without an Apostle being involved. You typically ignored my question. Now you ask me for the definition of an Apostle. This is very unbecoming of mature homo sapiens. Anyway, my nature does not permit me to ignore inquiries directed at me. In a nutshell, Apostle Paul said rhetorically that was he not an Apostle and had he not SEEN the Lord Jesus? This connotes that one must have a Theophanic Revelation of Christ as the first requirement to be an Apostle. You must have a face to face encounter with Christ and be given your commission DIRECTLY by Christ before you can be called an Apostle. Go figure that out for a start.

    • @daemondada
      First and obvious example. Pentecost. 120 disciples were not apostles. More importantly is that you are arguing from silence. You don’t have ALL instances of infilling of the Holy Spirit and you have verses that are silent on this issue such as Acts 13:52. Qustion is after the last apostle died on 96AD, how have believers been receiving this GIFT?

  41. Just Wonder,
    Of course Christ is the one who baptises in the Holy Spirit. John the Baptist baptised in water. Presently both these men are no longer physically on Earth. Hence needs must that their jobs be carried out by others. Show me just ONE example in the Bible were Christians were baptised in the Holy Spirit without an Apostle being involved. Just one. Even in secular Law, precedents are paramount. Show me a precedent of Christians being baptized in the Holy Spirit by other Christians who are not described as being Apostles? No you cannot. Sorry to burst your bubble but if you haven’t received the baptism directly from Christ himself or his Apostles you better check yourself before you wreck yourself. I am completely done with this issue. Shalom.

    • @daemondada,
      There are 3 instances where believers received the Gift while the apostles were present. Those can’t possibly be the ONLY instances where believers received the Spirit. You are building your false doctrine on these 3 by ASSUMING that in every other instance, the apostles must have been present. Let’s test your theory. Read carefully Acts 9. Ananias was sent to lay hands on Paul so he may receive his sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit (v17) Was Ananias an apostle? 😉

      Remember from Galatians 1:18, Paul went up to Jerusalem 3 years after his conversion. According to you, his first 3 years of ministry were without the Baptism until he met the first apostle since his conversion,Peter in Jerusalem

      Acts 1:15-26 especially v 22,25 and 26. The primary job of the apostles was to witness Jesus resurrection. We have their witness in the New Testament. What job would the apostles be doing in the 2nd to 21st century? Does Christ make routine theophanic manifestations every generation to a few in the world to your so- called ‘apostles’ going by your definition,who MUST lay hands on every believer else they will NEVER receive the gift of the Spirit?

  42. @ Dada,

    Then all those self appointed Apostles or called by others with the name Apostles are then false Apostles.

    When Just Wonder says define me an Apostle he means likely, if you can knock over a person or let them squirm or so to speak heal, you are an Apostle ? Is that what you are saying ?

    All those street healers are that supposed to be Apostles ? Why in the church so many are being “exercised” or “baptised” into speaking in tongues ? You are trying to put things in a perspective to justify anyone’s erratic behaviour, in this case TB Joshua’s lies, false prophecies, interrogation of demons at length, deception and knocking people over he deserves than to be called an Apostle ? That counts then the same for the Wisemen, which they publically did last year. And how is such a Scripture as this THEN NOT Applicable upon them as this one.

    Revelation 2:2I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars!!!!

    I have found them liars, TBJW found them liars, online there are thousands of them who found them liars. Now in the face of many there are now things put online that they are liars. finds TB Joshua a false prophet on several accounts, the Trinity foundation an American Warch dog finds them liars and deceivers. So who are you to tell us otherwise with an overwhelming proof they are no liars and if they are they are no Apostles and then only the Police and Justice system is enough to unravel their scam empire. No Apostle needed. This is the sole reason why he forced one of his daughters to study Law and now is in Harvard, because he knows the day of reckoning is coming !! If you are Gods child you don’t need no defense The Lord will go before you.

    • @ Dada,

      Scenario, here you have become an “apostle” so you put on the brave shoes on and go off to Lagos, Location Ikutun Egbe, in the vicinity SCOAN before you enter you say I am Apostle so and so and I want an audience with TB Joshua on Sunday to tell him the Judgement of The Lord is upon you. A silence falls, crickets are chirping in the background and then….. A riot of laughter bursts out in front if you of those you address and as in the African traditional way they all put their hands on each others upper arm while shaking back and forth with their bodies with riotous laughter coming from them and start talking in Yuroba, Igbo, Hausa and in broken English language they just walk away or export you down the road with ridicule.


      Seriously. Crooks need to be dragged before court and cast into jail when they scam their way and keep lying through their teeth. Not sure if you comprehend that, but I do. So onwards Christians. Take out your Sword !

      So then again, you wait until you weigh an ounce until you get letter from God to be Apostle, just don’t mind me to use Gods Word and prayers as a hammer and hawk him as Angelica does and break the false lying prophet to pieces until he publicly repents. So out of my way, Dada, enough delay and beating around the bush, choose, or you come with me and TBJW or keep standing on the other side of the fence, scratching your head, I am increasing my prayers, Word of God exegesis and keep scrutinising them with my research to uncover lies and false prophecies and fake deliverances, healings. Jesus is Lord, if God is for you, who can be against you ?

  43. @ All,


    I was drawn last night by a video of the White House in where Jay Carney resigned of his job. But what did strike me he (Jay Carney) was wearing a wristband with coloured beads. Of course this can be coincidence, but We can SEE that he is sort of playing with it and then covering it up a few times. Not saying it means anything, but I found it profound that I was drawn and made attention to it.

    Can anybody see what I mean ?

    Here is the video with Obama doing the press conference, watch Jay Carney fiddling with his wristband or….are it “prayer beads” like the ones TB Joshua has ? Why would he wear such obvious high coloured beads ? Any reason for it to fiddle with it so obviously and then try to hide them. Of course Jay is nervous, I admit it, but can it be he Jay is fed up speaking lies and being press evasive about certain questions they do ? I know that TB Joshua is trying to get in contact with the Obamas for certain reasons and gain, why not for using him to spread his nasty lies into this world about the MH370, The disappeared and kidnapped girls with Boko Haram, the strategy of positioning Hillary Clinton to run for president. Watch this space and see it unfold as I said you need to see the bigger picture of Satan playing out his Last evil Symphony of lies and deception to murder millions of people. As God is my witness I will not stop until these are being found guilty, they have blood on their hands and they will have in the future. Blow the Shofar !!!! Stand upon your wall and be a Watchman ! Jesus is coming ! Do not let anyone deceive you and certainly not a false prophet. Remember I said the word “shifting” and no I am not a conspiracy theorist but going for the Truth to prevail. Stand up and begin to pray for God to make His move.

  44. @ Dada,

    Let this explain you it in context. We must not press about being or a title of being an Apostle. We do what Mark 16 says and that is it. Because we are called to be a royal priesthood a peculiar people. Concerning the KJV.

    The Revised Version is to be preferred throughout which tells us.

    I know thy works. This introductory “I know” appears in all seven letters. He whose eyes are “as a flame of fire” Revelation 1:14 has perfect knowledge of his servants, and this knowledge is the basis of the praise and blame. “Works,” a favourite word with John, and very frequent in both Gospel and Apocalypse, is used in a wide sense, including the whole of conduct (comp are to John 3:19, 20; John 5:36; John 7:3, 7; John 8:39, 41; 1 John 3:8, 12 2John 11 3 John 1:10). Thy toil and patience.

    Explanatory of “thy works;” the Ephesians know how to toil and how to suffer patiently. They have “learned to labour and to wait.” Ignatius says that he must be trained “in patience and long suffering” by the Ephesians Ephesians 3. And that thou canst not bear evil men. Again Ignatius supplies a commentary: “Now, Onesimus of his own accord highly praiseth your orderly conduct in God, for that ye all live according to truth, and that no heresy hath a home among you; nay, ye do not so much as listen to any one, if he speak of aught else save concerning Jesus Christ in truth” Ephesians 6. The word for “evil” (κακός), though one of the commonest in the Greek language, is rare in John; it occurs only here and in Revelation 16:2 John 18:23 3 John 11. Didst try them which call themselves apostles, and they are not. It is incredible that this can even mean Paul. Even allowing the prodigious assumption that the “Jewish Christianity” of John was opposed to the “Gentile Christianity” of Paul, what chance would an opponent of Paul have had in a Church which St. Paul founded and fostered? And had such opposition existed, could Polycarp, John’s own disciple, have spoken of “the wisdom of the blessed and glorious Paul ‘Philippians,’ 3. This mention of false apostles is doubly interesting:

    1. as a fulfilment of warnings given by Paul himself to the Ephesian Church Acts 20:28-30; comp. 2 Timothy

    2. as a strong incidental mark of the date of the book. In A.D. , when contemporaries of the apostles were abundant, the claim to be an apostle might with some show of reason be made; in A.D. such a claim would be ridiculous. This Trench admits, and hence tells us that the meaning of “apostles” must not be pressed, “as though it implied a claim to have seen and been sent by the Lord Jesus,” But this is just what “apostle” does imply. Acts 1:21, 22; 1 Corinthians 9:1

    Lets be onward and fight the good fight and remove those that deceive us and continue to declare and establish the Kingdom of God !

  45. What has happened to Gary and Fiona Tonge?
    I saw that he has his own web-site since 2011?
    Are they still with scoan?
    Why this web-site with his cv on when he is still in scoan?
    Having been Director of Engineering / Technology with the UK’s Independent Television Commission from 1990 to 2003, I have been offering strategic and technical policy advice in fields such as spectrum management and digital terrestrial television on a consultancy basis. Recent clients have included Microsoft and the Irish Government. I have also been involved in voluntary and humanitarian work.

    • @ Just Wonder,
      As far as I know and what I saw when the President of South Sudan was prayed over by Christopher, they are still there. Gary was standing behind him while the president was sitting on a chair.
      Both Gary and Fiona Tonge were so to speak delivered of (imaginary) self made up “demons” of “Death and “Darkness”. To me very ridiculous and absurd because how can you lead a church if you are full of demons and go all over the world delivering people in diverse churches with “anointing water” in your hand spraying and not manifest yourself. Duh ! Then pro SCOAN people tell you that Satan cannot cast out Satan, but that is exactly what is been happening then. But whatever. Can’t tell or convince them that and if you tell them, they say it is none of your business. Uhuh ! The same happened to their kids. Full of “demons” after been in the SCOAN ministry for 10-12 years and that claims they do deliverance on a daily basis.
      Hope that answers your questions about them. Just Wonder

    • I’m fairly sure they’re still involved. They certainly were back in 2011 when that site was setup, so the site itself is not evidence of them leaving.

  46. All,
    The Bible tells us in Hebrews 3:1 that Jesus is the First Apostle and High Priest of our salvation.
    In John 20:19-23 we see the first instance of the Baptism of the Spirit carried out by Jesus himself on his disciples (who were later called Apostles) in the locked up room. Observe how Christ tells them that anyone THEY forgive is forgiven. This was an authority previously held solely by Christ our First Apostle. This authority does not belong to every Christian. It is the exclusive preserve of Apostles. Apostles, therefore, act directly in Christ’s stead in ALL matters concerning His Bride. As I said previously, you must receive your Apostleship Commission DIRECTLY from Christ face to face as Apostle Paul did on the Road to Damascus. Others with Paul only heard the Sound and fled into the bushes in terror but ONLY Paul SAW Christ. Christ can still choose to appear to anyone He wishes today and commission the person as an Apostle. brb.

      The pope has also has so called “powers” to forgive and canonise people. Does that make it legitimate ? Do you accept the Pope the replacement of Peter ? And do you claim also that the Pope has the two keys of Death and Hell ? And that because of him now the gates of Hell will not prevail against the church because he claims that he is the replacement of Peter ?

      Everything we see is by self appointment and as indeed Vooke says, what proof is there that Jesus appeared to anyone who claims they are now apostles. When I was very sick many years ago Jesus appeared to me at some point at the foot of my bedside and I was healed. But I am not going to Trumpetblast as you do now that I am an Apostle. In the ministry I used to be before it was very easy to knock people over and let them squirm or laugh hysterically on the ground and let them roll over the floor back to front. Anyone could do it and many did. But now what ? Manifestation means nothing. Being saved means everything. Spray, knock, splash, roll, declare free, even pray over someone, in a sort of spiritual spasm means to me not Salvation. If you think those modern day prophets and self appointed apostles are the key to that, I am telling you now, you not only deceive yourself, but also your listeners and observers. Over to you !

  47. You are right in saying that the 120 weren’t all Apostles. John 20 tells us how Christ officially made the Twelve become Apostles and no longer just disciples. He said to them that as the Father has sent me so send I you. This now made the Apostles equal in Apostleship with Christ. I am not saying the Apostles are Christs. Don’t get it twisted. On the Pentecost Day, the Holy Spirit came on the Disciples ot which the Twelve were a part of. The Twelve had already received their Apostleship. in John 20. In Acts13:52, Paul and Barnabas had already done the Spirit’s baptism on the converts as they normally did. We have no reason to believe they would do otherwise. in this case. Christ can STILL decide to appear to anyone TODAY and anoint the person as an Apostle. Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever. Wake up bro.

    • @daemondada,
      Indoctrination is a dangerous thing. You are simply reciting mantras from your denomination/church without questioning. You are reading a script. You need like Bereans to test your doctrines against the Word.
      What Jesus can do is totally irrelevant. He can come down and preach again before returning to judge! He can make rocks and donkeys preach. What you are trying to propagate is no different from Jehovah’s Witnesses and their WatchTower Society. They claim there has been a line of witnesses from Jesus to today. Pressed to explain who were the witnessed before the Society was founded they can’t point out. Your doctrine claims there MUST have been apostles in every generation of believers since first century to 21st century. If there was a break,the Christians would not receive Baptism of the Spirit. Either that or the Baptism of the Spirit stopped at some point when the apostles were no more.
      This doctrine is used by modern day Cultic churches which then teach that they are apostles, a unique brand of believers with super abilities. Question is,who were the apostles of 20th century? What about 19th,17th- 2nd century? And how is a non-Spirit baptized believer supposed to ID these ‘special’ Christians with ‘theophanic’ encounters with the Risen Christ?
      Once again look at Paul’s conversion in Acts 9. The risen Christ assigned a ‘mere’ disciple, Ananias to lay hands on him so he may receive sight and the Holy Spirit. From Galatians 1:18, Paul’s first encounter with an apostle happened 3 years after conversion. And don’t even try to suggest that he got filled the moment he was converted. This is proven by Ananias’ assignment by Christ in Acts 9:17
      I pray to God that human doctrines and traditions bow before the Word of God. Shalom 😉

  48. Elder Jesse,
    Are you on drugs? I just need to know because you keep rambling on about stuff of which you have no proof about. You keep accusing me of saying/doing stuff I have NEVER said or done. Why? I am no longer going to address your posts to me except you attempt to bring up yet another false accusation about me. Let’s be civil and just ignore each other henceforth. Goodbye.

    • @ Dada,

      No, The last time I checked and before, no drugs involved.

      What did I accuse you of ? You are here to come to tell us that we all need to be Apostles to do something supernaturally or even rebuke other “Apostles” . I said people call themselves “Apostles” and claim that they did see Jesus face to face based upon your Paul explanation and encounter with Christ. You simultaneously assume then and speculate that all people who are supposed to be used by God must be elevated by God as Apostles. As Vooke says, what evidence do they have ? Their claim, I have seen Jesus face to face ? So now accept me as an “Apostle” sent by God. I mean come on. Even the early church fathers as I mentioned a few before in my posts and in the past they were having these so called epiphanies and visions, but when read about it, they discarded them because they tested it that they WERE not out of God. You are trying to shift your goal posts by trying to shut people up that they can’t know or say anything unless they are supposed to be Apostles. Why does it say in 1 Corithians 5 you need to bring your problems TO THE LEAST ESTEEMED IN TO THE CHURCH AND LET THEM JUDGE ACCORDINGLY. If there was anyone twisting it, it is you. Apparently I have spooked you, you don’t want to come with me about the issues at hand but rather divert the matters at that are current. But on the contrary when you hear TB Joshua make outrageous claims apparently you seem to be very excited about, am I wrong ? If you are concerned about it then show yourself of who you are so I can identify you by your claims what is your position then in the church where you attend ? If it is too close for comfort then do try to make your point of view legitimate and tell us your point actually is. To me it comes over that you try to diffuse the matter and sing another song so we are not looking too close what now actually is wrong in SCOAN and their leadership as they tell us they belong to the Body of Christ. Yes ? Again I wrote this just having ate a Yoghurt with Strawberries and a Potato bread with ham slices, if you are so concerned about my mental state. No pills were involved in any kind. Pity it is that that is all you got to say about me. If you can’t see the difference of reality or my slightly aggressive way of writing and a bit over zealous, then I wonder what you see then when you watch TB Joshua in action with outrageous claims and pass them off he heard from God.

  49. Did you not hear me say that Jesus was the First Apostle of our Salvation? Jesus was the One who first baptized in the Spirit. The five fold ministry has Jesus (An Apostle) at the TOP!

    • You call my teaching a false doctrine without coming up with any facts to disprove it. This is tantamount to what scoanites do to your own teachings and remain headstrong to all your facts without refuting them Biblically. What now seperates you from them? You ask if Ananias was an Apostle. Paul himself said that he was born ABNORMALLY and thst he was the least of the Apostles. Christ was the One who commanded Ananias to lay hands on Paul. He used Ananias’ physical body to execute the Spirit baptism on Paul. Christ is the First Apostle of the Church. He has a glorified body and hence could not have physical contact with a sinner as Paul was at the time. Apostles don’t need to be instructed to lay hands on converts for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (BOHS for short) because it is their exclusive preserve. Ananias did not go to Paul of his own accord. He was sent by Christ to carry out a special task. Paul is a special case of Apostle because Christ wanted to use him to preach to the Gentiles. He was not taught by any man or received instruction from the Apostles. He was taught personally by revelation from Christ himself. The lesser is blessed by the greater. How then can Ananias, a disciple, anoint Paul as an Apostle if not that he was acting as a proxy for Christ? Apostles have all the gifts of the Spirit bar none. Do you have ALL the gifts of the Spirit? You typically regress to abject cynicism once your arguments are shot down much like most scoanites do on this website. You refused to admit that Evangelist Philip could not have been Apostle Philip since he could not baptise the recent converts in the Spirit. Even when shown that the Apostles remained in Jerusalem during the Dispersal, you insist that it was only Apostle Philip that journeyed to Samaria on evangelism. Not only that but you also insist that he called on his fellow Apostles to come and BOHS the recent converts probably because he was a bit too tired to bother to do the more important baptism afterall the physical exhaustion from water baptizing the converts. Be a man and own up to your shortsightedness. Yes Christ CAN still appear in every generation to appoint Apostles. Are you Christ to say He can’t? I am not gonna engage you again on this topic. Be careful of where your BOHS comes from. You have been warned!

      • @daemondada,
        You are defending doctrines of men not contending for your faith. You asked for example of a baptism of the Holy Spirit where no apostle was present. When presented with evidence you claim it was exceptional/abnormal 🙂 :-). What if I argued the 3 instances where disciples received the baptism through the Spirit were exceptional isolated cases?

        Think through. At what point did Paul’s sins got forgiven? When he encountered Christ or afterwards? Your false doctrine demands that he be forgiven long after he obeyed Christ! And who told you Christ could not touch him because of his sins? He appeared to him while he was still a sinner! See false doctrines demand even more stranger unsubstantiated beliefs to hold together 😦

        You are arguing in senseless circles. Am sure you ran to consult this fact conflicting your dogma. Are you implying that Ananias was given ‘special apostolic mandate’ relevant for Paul’s BOHS only? Think. Apostles or Ananias are agents God uses to impart the Holy Spirit whether by laying in of hands or not. Ananias was specifically commanded to lay hand for obvious reasons; no believer was ready to receive him.Fact remains that if an apostle was terribly necessary for Paul’s BOHS, it was not beyond Christ to command one of them to meet Paul. He instead commanded a ‘mere’ disciple. When Holy Spirit deemed it necessary, He sent Peter to Cornelius, miles away to do the job

        About Philip, I have given you facts and history. If 2nd century believers thought he was one and the same person, what special revelation do you have to point that they are not? In any case, whether they were one and the same person is irrelevant to the discussion at hand. Have your way. There were Philip the apostle and Philip the evangelist.

        About Christ appearing to believers and making them apostles through the 21 centuries, you are demanding that he follows your script of ‘theophanic manifestations’ and special mandate to these apostles. Am saying that is UNNECESSARY. I will simply ask you for one example of a living believer who has gone through all that whom you know to be an apostle….name ONE. How do you know this? Are you saying that EVERY believer needs to interact with these men before they can receive BOHS?

      • Yes Paul is a UNIQUE case in the Bible in everything he passed thru. He NEVER had contact with the Apostles at the first because he was under DIRECT tutoring by Christ Himself. Christ dealt with Paul directly for 3 years just as He did the Twelve when He walked on earth. What was the need of Christ to treat Paul this way? Why didn’t He just let Paul be tutored by the Apostles. Well maybe it’s because this same Paul would be the one to give us the lion’s share of the New Testament? Say whatever you want still Christ meeting with Paul in his Glorious State and Paul’s unregenerated state got Paul physically blind. How much more if Christ had touched him! Anybody today that tells you that he does not need instruction as a new believer from anyone and wants to go off on his own would suffer rebuke from his overseer. Paul’s Christian walk cannot be used as a prototype for EVERY Christian’s walk with God. Goodbye on this topic.

      • When John the Baptist told Jesus that he was not worthy of baptizing Him Christ didn’t tell John that he was wrong. He told John that he was permitted to do so for that UNIQUE instance in order for them both to fulfill all righteousness. Matthew 3:13-17. Christ can digress from the hierarchical order of things in certain unique cases and make the improper proper in order to achieve His objectives. That does not mean we should discard our hierarchical structure in the Church altogether. Why did Christ not just baptize Himself since He is greater than John the Baptist?

      • @ Dada,

        “Apostles have all the gifts of the Spirit bar none”

        No, they don’t, proof 1Corinthians 12. You have acquired that in your own thinking and now you validate that with your own interpretation by saying it here. If they had all, then Paul would not complain how wretched he was and how in need he was of Jesus. And that his members of his body were against what was of Christ. This is explained in the Greek word, Sarx. It would benefit you that you never compare Jesus’s seven fold anointing Isaiah 11 with any mortal man, or apostle or even elevate them as an apostle by your own appointment of them. How ridiculous this all is you claim. Heresy ! If not Anathema !

      • @ Dada,
        It was not three years with Paul. I was a total of nearly 17 years, in where two occasions (stoning) when he wanted to get out as a preacher to the masses because he taught he was ready to march for God he was nearly killed by those he encountered while doing that. Paul’s convictions were so ingrained in him by theological errors it took that long to beat that out of him, by the Holy Spirit and his personal teachers. If you are telling something concerning history, then do your homework first. In any other case you will be found telling heresies.

  50. All,
    someone who says that he/she received the BOHS on their own without being laid hands upon is tantamount to someone saying that they Water-Baptized themselves by themselves. You stroll up to a nearby river, dive in and Voila! you are Water-Baptized. There is a hierarchy in the Body of Christ. Apostles first. Then Prophets. Then Teachers. And so on. The Apostles are at the top of the food chain. The absence of the BOHS today is the reason fir the POWERLESS Church we have today and the reason why manipulators such as tbj are running amok and causing havoc in the Body of Christ. It is also why most Christians are on their knees and grovel at the feet of tbj and his like as they desperately seek for some crumbs of his “power” from his table. Dear Lord Jesus, make me your Apostle for MY generation I beseech you in your Mighty Name I Pray. Amen!

    • @daemondada,
      The point is whether one Can ONLY receive BOHS through apostles or not. You insist they must. I have no problem with that except it is a figment of your imagination. Again your theory demands a continuous chain of apostles through the 21 centuries. How many apostles does the present body of Christ need to ensure no believer misses their special BOHS powers? How can we identify modern apostles? How do we distinguish them from the average Christians?

      Believers prayed for me,students and I received Christ. The next day I received the baptism and I prayed in tongues

  51. And for the record, I was not taught any of these teachings of mine by anyone. I read the New Testament from a literal point of view and not from a figurative perspective as most Christians are prone to do once I converted to Christianity. The New Testament is infinitely easier to understand than the Torah once you take it literally. Jesus simplified everything. Don’t over-complicate the simplicity we should enjoy in Christ.

    • @daemondada,
      I find it ridiculously flattering when you studied the scriptures literally as opposed to other Christians who are into figures and symbols…(do I read pride here? You are better than other Christians in your comprehension???) and you arrived at a popular Cultic doctrine! What you believe whether you did it by yourself and I highly doubt is eerily similar to those who insist that they are the modern true apostles. They have special powers unlike the rest. Again, how do we know who are true apostles today?

  52. @daemondada,
    “Paul’s Christian walk cannot be used as a prototype for EVERY Christian’s walk with God”
    If we can’t use Paul, why would we use 3 instances of the apostles presence during the baptism of the Spirit to invent a doctrine? I have been saying that we should not build doctrine around isolated events in Acts. For instance, they cast lots to get Judas replacement. How many believers cast lots today to appoint leaders? They used to go to the synagogue at 1500H to pray. Is that a rule? They used to sell all and eat together. Do you advocate that?

    The most tragic and inevitable conclusion of your theory is that believers can never enjoy BOHS without apostles. A believer has no means of ID-ing apostles and has to trust somebody is enough of an apostle to get them this gift. Your doctrine creates a barrier between man and God; another man. I can’t recall the many times I have laid hands on students and they received the baptism of the Spirit. And am no apostle. In fact, i haven’t spoken in tongues in almost 20 years. But I lead people to Christ, pray with them and they receive BOHS.

    Quit spreading fear and reliance on mortals to receive what is freely ours in Christ. You are a merchant of bondage

  53. Why am I still responding to you? Well for the benefit of people following our debate, I will attempt to clarify a few things. Why is nobody able to explain the reason why the BOHS could not be imparted by Evangelist Philip? He performed myriad miracles yet he couldn’t BOHS the brethren? How many Christians today can claim to perform the astonishing miracles that Philip did? And you think that there is a Christian alive who can outperform Philip and baptize converts in the Spirit? Where in the Bible is it recorded that Christians got BOHS on their own without the presence of an Apostle? Ananias was also sent by Jesus, who appeared to him by the way, on an assignment and can also be said to be an Apostle as well though it was not recorded. I said that an Apostle is a person that has had Jesus appear to him and send him on mission. I didn’t want to go as far as calling Ananias an Apostle because it was not clearly written down and you are an unbelievable naysayer. How many people can honestly claim that Jesus has appeared to them and sent them on a mission. The gospel did not originate with you and you are not the only ones it has reached. Philip is not negligent to not have BOHS the converts if he could. So finally I maintain my stand that only Apostles can BOHS believers. QED.

    • @daemondada,
      you are responding to REASON and TRUTH not to vooke and I salute you for that 🙂
      Nobody may explain why disciples never received the BOHS under Philip. But inventing a false doctrine that is contrary to scriptures and that demands ‘theophanic manifestations’ to a select group of elite Christians known as apostles is foolishness. We don’t invent doctrines out of the inexplicable, but out of what can be explained. Now you are engaging in theological circus. Let’s examine your theories/acrobatics;
      1. Paul was a special case which called for special circumstances
      2. Paul was a vile thing who God couldn’t touch with an 8 foot pole so he sent Ananias to do the needful
      3. Ananias was an ‘apostle’ because Jesus appeared to him and sent him
      Let us examine them
      1. Why shouldn’t I consider the 3 instances where disciples receive the BOHS with apostles present as special?
      2. Paul in 1 Cor 15 says the risen Christ appeared to him just as he appeared to other apostles and disciples. If the risen Christ could appear physically to a sinner, why would you consider the sinner as too vile to stand before God?
      3. Am listening to a sermon and am convicted of my sins. I repent and am converted. You have a vision of Christ calling you bla bla. Between me and you who is a better Christian or more Christian? And please read Acts 9. Ananias had a vision of Jesus not a physical appearance. Otherwise he would have joined the 1Cor 15 list of post-resurrection appearance candidates. Visions don’t make nobody any more unique that the rest

  54. And your puny attempts at belittling me are futile. All my arguments have been backed up with Scripture. You, on the other hand, rely on Church Traditions handed down the centuries as can be seen by your quotation of extra-biblical sources in your arguments. I have never quoted anything but Scripture. You are the one spreading deceit in the Church, not I. You have no Scriptural proof to back up your personal BOHS experience. You just expect us to take you by your word. What tgen is the fate of people who are not fortunate as you to get the BOHS the way you did? There were no converts who did not receive the BOHS IMMEDIATELY after conversion as long as the Apostles were available in the ENTIRE Bible. Why do Christians today have to keep fasting and praying endlessly for what Jesus described as a gift the Holy Father gives FREELY to his children? You have no argument that can hold water except blind belief.

    • @daemondada,
      you have zero respect for the Word of God and are not prepared to abandon man made beliefs and embrace the Word of God.
      Explain to me what baptism I received and there were no apostles around. You are avoiding my question. Name one living apostle in 2014.
      BTW, have you received the BOHS yourself? which apostle laid hands on you? I want to meet them
      Look at this logic;
      “There were no converts who did not receive the BOHS IMMEDIATELY after conversion as long as the Apostles were available in the ENTIRE Bible” So now it is about how fast disciples receive BOHS after conversion. We don’t have ALL instances of disciples receiving BOHS except 3 instances. Why should we form a doctrine out of 3 instances? If this doctrine is true, who were the 2nd century to 21st century apostles? Why don’t you be kind enough to refer the church to them so they may receive the BOHS?
      I don’t know which Christians ‘fast and pray endlessly’, I know I never did that to receive BOHS. I also know some believers miss out on the baptism because like Apollos they don’t understand it as such. But that is besides the point. Share with us a list of apostles so we can connect to them and receive this Gift. Or aren’t you interested in us receiving it? 😉

  55. The BOHS in the Bible is described as the Bread the Father gives to His children. Christ said that if we who are evil know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will the Holy Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask it of Him. Peter told his listeners to Repent and be baptized so that they could receive the BOHS. He never told anyone to fast and pray for this. We do not even know how to fast and pray rather it is the Spirit that intercedes for us with GROANS that words cannot express. How then do folks think they can achieve this by their own power? Christ after being baptized by John then received the BOHS directly from heaven as a dove. He needed the BOHS before he could head into the Wilderness for 40 days fasting. Nowadays, Christians want to go into the Wilderness for 40 days BEFORE they are BOHS. This is UNSCRIPTURAL!!! There is no Christian that operated without the BOHS in the entire Bible. Why then is it the norm these days? Stop deceiving the Body of Christ, we cannot continue in this charade any longer. Things must be followed as it is written in the Bible even if it involves the Sharing of ALL Christians have in common, then so be it. There was no instruction in the Bible that after some centuries that standards could be allowed to slip. We need our generation of Apostles RIGHT NOW to be the nucleus of the Revived Christian Empire. Deceiver.

    • @daemondada,
      you are inventing a straw-man; Christians praying and fasting for the Gift of the Spirit. Please talk to those Christians when you meet them. As for me, just share one man/woman you believe to be a 21st century apostle. I want this BOHS and I don’t know who should lay hands on me. Thank you in advance 🙂

  56. The Believers shared all they had in common and committed themselves to prayers, fellowship, breaking of bread and the APOSTLE’S teaching AND DAILY GOD ADDED UNTO THEM THE NUMBER OF CONVERTS WHO WERE BEING SAVED!!! This is the PATTERN God prescribed for the Expansion of the Church. That is why Apostle’s Paul experience is an anomaly (abnormal). He was not subsumed under the Apostle’s Teaching. The Apostles are the highest authority. Your claim that Apostles are no longer essential for the Operation of the Church is Biblically BASELESS. They are the Supervisors of the whole System. The Board of Directors of our Organization. Trustees of the highest Order. Prove your stand with Biblical evidence!!!

    • @daemondada,
      Who are the 21st century Board of Directors/Trustees of our Organization? If you really cared about the health of the body of Christ,please share the name(s)
      Work of the apostles? Let’s dig
      Acts 1
      21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
      22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
      23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
      24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
      25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
      26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
      V21- they must have accompanied Christ for a better part of his ministry
      v22- Their main job was to witness the resurrection of our Lord Jesus
      I may also add they were WITHOUT EXCEPTION males. So I wonder why you are praying for this yet you are a woman. Do a sex-change first 😉

  57. Pls guys especially jesse and dada. Read gal6vs1-10. And just a quick ? For dada. Was it mentioned by christ himself or any apostle of christ that without an apostle we can’t be Baptised with the holy spirit? Am emphasising on MENTIONED cuz have been studying the new testament and it basically says we all shud know christ and believ with faith that he died for us and every oda thing will fall in place. And secondly why shud someone who dosnt read kjv be joking with christianity. Pls explain. Thanks.

    • @ej,
      Please study Cornelius in Acts 10 especially verse 44
      “44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. ”

      A few things, it was not until Peter spoke that the Holy Spirit came on them, That is the KEY; The WORD. It means nobody receives this baptism without receiving the Word. To back this, look at Acts 19:1-5, we had new converts who had not received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We are told the reason was they had not HEARD-V2 about this. When they HEARD about it in v5-6, they received. So the KEY again is the Word. For this reason I can conjecture in Acts 8 that the disciples whom Philip converted and had not received the Spirit had not HEARD about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This understanding of why they had not received this Gift despite being converted makes more sense than alleging that the ‘right’ people, the apostles had not laid hands on them.

      Please note,if any believer needs a ‘special’ believer, an apostle to lay hands on them so they may receive baptism, it means in absence of that person, they will never receive God’s free gift. They may have the scriptures with them, they may meditate day and night, do all things Christians do, but they will NEVER receive the Holy Spirit because there are no apostles in sight. What kind of doctrine is that? That teaching is basically taking the body of Christ to John 5:7 position of helplessness; that there is no man to put us in the pool. Hearing the word is not enough, praying is not enough, YOU NEED APOSTLES!

  58. ej,
    How’s your boyfriend? Hope all’s well and he’s back to his senses. I have read the passage you requested I did. So insightful. The major problem I have with Modern Christianity is that most Christians are cool with the dearth of the Power of GOD yet they refuse to give that same condescending attitude to the Devil-Satan. Satan is still the same Satan he has always been since the time of Christ’s walk on earth till now. Why does the Body of Christ today believe that we can stand up to him in this near powerless condition we find ourselves today? We have even bigger trials and temptations today with Christianophobia, terrorism, gross immorality, deadlier diseases and all other ills we see in contemporary society. Should this not be the time when we overwhelmingly need the Spirit to give us the desire to keep to Christ’s law and be more than conquerors? You asked a pertinent question of if Christ (The First Apostle) or his Apostles specifically mentioned a need for the Apostles to administer BOHS on believers. Pardon me because I have a question of my own. What did Christ mean when He said to the Eleven in John 20 that whoever they forgave their sins were forgiven and whoever they did not forgive their sins remains unforgiven? Or do you think that Christ was talking to every Christian when He said that? You and me to be specific? No ******* way! If that were so, then I can assure you that virtually no-one would make heaven because we would all **** one another up BIGTIME due to our fleshly natures. The steps required for the BOHS are as follows; repentance first (compulsory), then water baptism or Spirit baptism in no rigid order. If you are repentant and yet someone hypothetically refuses to permit your sins to be forgiven you, how then are you gonna get to the next two stages? This is not presuming that such could or had actually happened before yet it was theoretically possible. The Apostles had such HUGE influence on the Early Church that Paul even stated that they were the Foundation of the Church with Christ as the cornerstone. The signs that follow an Apostle are great miracles, signs and wonders performed with great perseverance. You cannot miss them. Apostle means messenger and they are people to whom Christ has appeared to and given a mission. Do not be afraid of anyone telling you that it’s kjv or nothing. It’s actually good to have as many versions of the Bible as possible. I read kjv myself though my preferred version is niv. There is no Scriptural evidence to be afraid of reading as many versions as possible though any contentious passage should be checked up with the original language authorities ASAP. That is how I go. Cheers.

    • @daemondada,
      The next illogical conclusions of your theory is that since all apostles in the ENTIRE scriptures were Jews, ONLY Jews can be apostles. That kinda narrows down the elite of believers to a single race. I can see poor peasants in Maldives praying that a Jew would come lay hands on them.You are preaching bondage.

      I will respond our claim that only apostles can forgive sins later

    • @dada its not about being afraid, its about what u sed. Whosoever reads anyoda version apart fro kjv is “joking with christianity” dats a big phrase you know, so please clear things up for sake of other readers of this blog. Pls read 1st cor3,12. What I understand in john20vs 19-23 is that Jesus Baptised his disciples with the Holy spirit bcus they BELIEVED. They belived he resurected and please read further to vs24-29. Thomas said he would only belive when he has seen the wounds and Jesus appeared to the eight days Later and showed thomas his worunds, obviously thomas wasn’t present when he first appeared to them. And Jesus told thomas to feel his wounds thomas felt it and he BELIEVED. And Jesus said you belived cuz u have seen me, BLESSED are tho who BELIEVE without seing me. You must believe and have faith in Christ Jesus and everyoda thing will be added, he myt appear personally to u and baptise you withe the holy spirit. As regards John20vs 23 I believe what Jesus mearnt is that whilst the apostles are on earth they have the authority to forgive sins, jesus was talking to his apostles and we know that cuz it was written, ryt now we can’t know who Jesus has appeared to or not the only thing that matters is you KNOWING by faith your personal relationship with him. Thanks

      • TBJW, please let me clarify this to vooke and ej.

        @Vooke and ej
        I think you are confusing between Daemondada and Angelica.Those two are not the same person.

        ““I am explaining from the King James Version, I believe this is the best translation as far as I am concerned, anyone reading anything else with the excuse that they cannot understand it, is joking with Christianity, period””
        This statement was said by Angelica not daemondada

        Vooke ,take time to read comments, Daemondada is a Man not a woman,its Angelica who said she is female.

      • @ Vooke,
        I hope you will enjoy reading this, while I look with one eye to Dada and others who read the virulent NIV translation to do even so.
        NASB Bible Translator Says, “I’m In Trouble With The Lord.”
        Dr. Frank Logsdon, member of the translation committee for the New American Standard Version (NASB), has denounced his work on that Bible and urged all Christians to return to the Authorized Version, commonly known as the King James Bible.
        Although the most popular translation at the present time is the New International Version, both of these modern Bibles are based upon the same Catholic text, and Logsdon’s concerns apply to both. Being involved with the project from the very beginning, Logsdon helped publisher F. Dewey Lockman with the feasibility study that led to the translation. He interviewed some of the translators, sat with them, and even wrote the preface. But soon the questions began coming in.
        His old friend, Dr. David Otis Fuller, began to put his finger on the many shortcomings of the Catholic text used in all modern Bibles, which include the NASB and today’s NIV. Logsdon finally said, “I’m in trouble; I can’t refute these arguments; it’s wrong; it’s terribly wrong; it’s frightfully wrong; and what am I going to do about it?” Logsdon shocked publisher Dewey Lockman by writing, “I must under God renounce every attachment to the New American Standard.” Logsdon then began to travel extensively, trying to make up for his error by explaining to people the very simple reasons why the Authorized Version is the one Bible which is absolutely 100% correct.
        Along with many other scholars, Logsdon had blindly accepted the basic argument used today to support the use of the two Catholic manuscripts, the Vaticanus and the Sinaiticus, in all modern Bibles. The “experts” claim that these are the oldest manuscripts in existence, so they must be the best! In one of his many public speeches, Logsdon explained, “When there is an omission that might be observed, they put in the margin,”Not in the oldest manuscripts.” But they don’t tell you what those oldest manuscripts are. What oldest manuscripts? Or they say,” Not in the best manuscripts.” What are the best manuscripts? They don’t tell you. You see how subtle that is? The average man sees a little note in the margin which says ” in the better manuscripts” and he takes for granted they are scholars and they must know, and then he goes on. That’s how easily one can be deceived.”
        Brook Foss Westcot’s work has done much of the damage that is responsible for the corrupt bible translations we have today.
        It was only after Logsdon took the time to really look into this issue that he was horrified to see that he had played right into Satan’s hands, and helped to take many verses out of the Scriptures. Logsdon admitted, “The deletions are absolutely frightening.” The huge number of English Bible translations currently available has produced untold millions of dollars in sales, but does anyone believe that they have produced a modern Church which is more knowledgeable about their Bible? No, it has produced the Siamese twins of confusion and falling away from truth. All modern Bible translators today use, without question, the New Testament text produced by the famous scholars Hort and Westcott.
        How anyone can believe TB Joshua and Wisemen after reading this, WHO CLAIM TO SPEAK BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AND DIRECT TO GOD AND FROM GOD BY PROPHECY and cannot read the erratic translation OF THEIR NIV’s of their claimed their personal infilling of the Holy Spirit who was at the beginning present at the creation of this world and knows all things. “You have an unction of the Holy Spirit and know ALL THINGS” How can you even believe that they are sent by God ? Sorry, but for me this is as clear as day and shows what we are actually dealing with.

    • @ Dada,

      If it “was or would be” true that Apostles as necessary, why if TB Joshua and Wisemen prophesy, why do they speak false prophesies and if they speak false prophecies, we can can confidently say their fake interrogation deliverances are false and the biblical in their eyes “infallibility” is than just a sham and a cover up that they are Apostles. If not heresy. Nobody said to do away with church hierarchy. What our and my question is as is of Vooke who are the 21st century Apostles and where are they. And if you refer to TB Joshua then tell him first to stop lying and his followers because that does not befit Apostles. Although I find in scripture that those that claim who are apostles and who are not are just plain liars.

      • @Jesse
        “What our and my question is as is of Vooke who are the 21st century Apostles and where are they”
        Actually my bigger problem is with the belief/doctrine that ONLY apostles, believers meeting this @daemondada’s rigorous requirements “Theophanic Revelation of Christ as the first requirement to be an Apostle. You must have a face to face encounter with Christ and be given your commission DIRECTLY by Christ ” can help you with baptism of the Holy Spirit.
        I find no basis for such conclusions from any scriptures. Furthermore,from Acts 1, apostles had one purpose; witnessing the resurrection of Christ, the bedrock of Christianity. And they had to have walked with Christ for all of his earthly ministry. This appears to be a temporary Office dispensed with once we had the witness in the full canon of New Testament.
        Say a Togolese man having a vision of the resurrected Christ today. He is less likely to have any significant impact on propagation of Christianity in 2014 AD. The man’s faith and joy from the vision will probably be lifted beyond measure, but nothing more can come out of it. He may go out preaching but I can assure you it is the WORD, scriptures that really transform lives not testimonies of his visions. But in 35 AD where belief in resurrection occasioned lynching, the encounter with the Risen Christ really boosted their faith. Bottomline is if we had apostles today, I doubt they would meet the criteria set out in Acts 1. And I find it unnecessary
        Supposing we still have modern apostles who meet @daemondada’s criteria and ONLY through whom the believers can receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. How are we supposed to ID them? I can’t use discernment because I don’t have the BOHS yet. The first century apostles knew each other since they followed Christ for 3 years. That’s why they resisted Paul at first. What about us? All we have are scriptures and instincts. How do we authenticate their “Theophanic Revelation of Christ” claims?
        I have an idea. Since ONLY apostles can confer BOHS, what about watching believers laying hands to see if somebody will receive the baptism? I mean we experiment. Have say 20 ministers laying hands on me and when I receive the BOHS, I will know that is an apostle. But I have receive terrible things by the time I get to the 20th I don’t think that is sensible. This idea of APOSTLES ONLY is so ridiculous I find it hard to believe that anyone actually believes it apart from the utterly deluded

      • @ Vooke,

        “you it is the WORD, scriptures that really transform lives not testimonies of his visions.”

        I agree with you, as well like to add, the renewal of our mind.

        Romans 12:2
        And be not conformed to this world:but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


        Romans 12:5-8
        So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 6 Having then GIFTS differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering:or he that teacheth, on teaching; 8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation:he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

        As I replied to Dada to look at 1 Corinthians 12. It does not say there that those gifts ARE GIVEN through an Apostle. It is written there that the Holy Spirit does it as HE WILLS. Which in turn collapses Dada’s claim that we must be receiving gifts as well baptism of the Holy Ghost through an Apostle. This is to my opinion to claim that IF the manifestations that are taking place in SCOAN are NOT from the Holy Spirit, simply because we are being told that this only could or should take place through the so called Apostle TB Joshua and Wiseman which is not verifiable in any way or form, since anyone can claim they have seen Jesus and therefore are now classified as Apostles in Dada’s heresies. This is bondage instead of being free to be used by God as He wants us to be. Therefore we are made a royal priesthood and be told by Jesus to go out and preach the Gospel indeed by the WORD and then these signs shall follow them. Healing, Deliverance, Prophesy, Miracles, etc etc. only when it is God’s will and not dispense it whenever you want or like, to me the latter is rather from an occult source and not from a Souvereign God. To me it confirmed why I was never healed in SCOAN simply God had other plans and perhaps or I think of writing here to prove that a lot is scamming and lying in SCOAN, which I witnessed myself in the flesh. If I was healed I likely would be talking as what they do in the pro TB Joshua websites and carry the guy all the way up to high heaven and he could never do anything wrong for me. I refuse to believe if THEY claim that Emmanuel is so to speak with them and I experience powers in my own body that I should have been healed at that time. Because what is the point of “feeling” power and you come away feeling serious depressed and still not been healed. Why would God exhibit His powers through him and I go home same way and are serious depressed ? Something is just wrong there. It just does not add up. I can’t think that God would give me feeling serious depressed as a present to go home with. Discussed that with the then leadership, which was just shrugged off as not important. Only to see them going gaga again over him. As I said, after some time I thought go give my portion to Ficky the Dog and left them in their enamourment over him. In which I was insulted for the fact that I did not belong to them and threw Bible scripture about that to me. There are no words to express how disgusting this came over from these nasty arrogant pieces of work to say such baseless insults.

    • @ Dada,

      “Why does the Body of Christ today believe that we can stand up to him in this near powerless condition we find ourselves today?”

      No need to, most of the demons that are operating in SCOAN are imaginary and just people that lie. You will see no celebrities from Hollywood, MTV come to SCOAN for deliverance. Did you see Madonna ? Katy Perry ? Miley Cyrus ? Angelie Jolie ? Oprah ? Lady Gaga ? Lindsay Lohan, Nicky Minaj, Beyonce ? Rihanna ? Chris Brown ? Shirley McLaine, Kate Moss, Peter Gilmore ?

      Do you see them begging to be delivered, because those I mentioned are truly possessed with many demons. None of them you see apply. What you do see apply is Nigerians, scamming Nigerians and even Jim Lyke who calls himself God’s Ambassador and Tonto Dikeh and whites that work for SCOAN. For real ! When will these “apostle necessary” lies stop ?

    • @ dada,

      “The signs that follow an Apostle are great miracles, signs and wonders performed with great perseverance”

      Since you don’t want to talk to me.

      Here is your answer from one way then.

      2 Thessalonians 2:9-11
      Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

      Revelation 19:20
      And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

      If you don’t know let me remind you, FRAMED PICTURES OF TB JOSHUA with stolen quotable quotes from others, because the Devil is never original all by himself.

      And you say I have not backed up with Scriptures, If anyone uses Scriptures it will be me. Also concerning Apostles. But you don’t read my posts because you want to sit on your high horse and be superior by applying bible history to all situations that is invented by SCOAN and likely by yourself. That from AD 60 till 2014 and beyond.

      As a matter of fact since God is Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, HE DON’T NEED ANY APOSTLES AT ALL, but he chooses and uses all that are WILLING to be doing His will. Even babies and/or donkeys, stones.
      Psalms 8:2-4
      Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength
      because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

      Matthew 21:16
      And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

      So God can use us without being an apostle and we are capable to baptise those in the Holy Spirit when we ask Him.

      Luke 11:9-14
      And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children:how MUCH more shall your heavenly Father give the HOLY SPIRIT to them that ASK him? <~~~~~~ Did you ever read this ? In your ERRATIC NIV TRANSLATION ? I guess not !

      How clear is this for you Dada ? This is coming from the MOUTH OF JESUS. NOW STOP YOUR HERESY and FALSE DOCTRINES !

      • @ All,
        This is an example of what you get if you read the NIV only.
        The NIV omits, has still errors in its translation. How can you read the Gospel or preach the Gospel if things are missing or are downright errors in translation.
        TB Joshua, Wisemen and the nearly the entire SCOAN uses the NIV only. You only have to ask why, because the NIV DENIES the Deity of Jesus Christ. How funny that if SCOAN uses the NIV whichbdenies the Deity of Jesus, declares TB Joshua as “The messiah of our time” and how you can’t be as a Christian or Follower of Jesus Christ not become furious about such heresy is beyond me.
        I myself had a Thomson Chain Reference Bible in the NIV version. After figuring out it had thousands of errors and missing words and quite a lot Scriptures missing. I dropped it and stopped using it. Even to know that Mark 16 is put in the footnotes in the original NIV translation, it becomes even more hilarious that SCOAN is nearly all based upon “driving out and interrogating demons” is than beyond me how they can get the Scriptural mandate to do such things.

  59. Kiki it was posted by dada and not angelica.Dada dint deny it did he? Pls go back and read thru. Thanks

  60. @kiki,
    Thank you for your concern. You are far too kind 🙂
    After re-checking the comments,
    This statement was FIRST made by @Angelica here
    @daemondada was basically replying to that thread here and she copied a whole paragraph

    My sincere profuse apologies to @daemondada and @Angelica for this mix-up. It was purely unintentional. It is just that endorsing KJV in one sentence and saying almost opposite of that a few lines later is contradictory. I use KJV myself and I really like it but I don’t subscribe to the belief that it is more superior to other versions. In any case the arguments for/against KJV fall are irrelevant to non-English speakers

    I think @daemondada said on another thread that she/he is a lady. But in all honesty, a blogger’s gender here is the least of my cares. Once again, my apologies to all and thank you @ kiki

  61. @kiki they both said it. Buh the issue is y it was said in the first place. Please let’s be
    careful of what we write here for the sake of other readers of this blog. Seems we r loosing track of the main issue, pls let’s be on course. Thanks

    • @ej
      How can they say the samething using exactly the same words? Is it possible?
      No, daemondada quoted Angelica in attempt to answer that part of her comment. When you use this mark ” …” you are actually quoting someone.
      Ok thanks you can continue on the main issue.

  62. @Daemondada – My point still remains, please read your bible carefully. I will not go into further long argument or writings on this. Please pray and ask the LORD to reveal the truth to you if you are confused.


    If you are an adolescent or a baby Christian or one who is an English learner, it is acceptable to read other easier bible version such “Revised Standard Version (RSV)”, but when you have started eating the “meat” of the Word and not drinking “milk”, and you really want to go in to exegesis of explaining the Word of God or simply meditating on it for your own personal spiritual growth, the King James Version is your best bet. I do not recommend you giving a KJV version to a 7 year old, though but I will NEVER recommend you giving anyone an NIV; therefore, if I quoted anything other than KJV, I must have used it trying to be more explicit in my writing. So, pls do not run with it – that I quoted a version other than the original KJV.

    The NIV (particularly this translation) is a demonic bible translation, period – quote me. NIV denies the deity of Jesus Christ and the power in the Blood of the LORD Jesus Christ. This is evil.

    Please, I will not go into any unnecessary long argument with anyone about this, just ask the LORD to open your eyes in prayer to see what I mean. Also, buy the two bible versions and compare.

    Thank you Jesse for the link you provided above.

    Here are also some helpful links about the danger of using NIV bible translation:

    Grab a cup tea or coffee for this one:

    • @Angelica,
      What is one unique thing in KJV that makes it superior to other English versions? It has its own fair share of mistranslations such as EASTER
