As any occasional Emmanuel TV viewer will be aware, SCOAN make a habit of interviewing “demons” before casting them out, in direct contrast to Jesus’ practice of keeping them silent (Luke 4:35). In fact, Emmanuel TV often seems to contain more messages from “demons” than scriptural content. A reader recently pointed us in the direction of a particularly shocking deliverance video. A woman, who we are led to believe is channeling lucifer, is interviewed for about 20 minutes by a “wise man”. At the climax of this interview, lucifer claims that TB Joshua is sent to liberate the world, not just Nigeria, but the world at large. This statement is then repeated, both times to whoops of delight from the congregation.
Though we’re used to TB Joshua’s “win/win” prophecies, in this case we actually have a “lose/lose” scenario. The bible teaches us that satan (lucifer) is the father of lies “…there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44b). Either we believe this really is lucifer speaking and so assume it is a lie, or we assume the lady is acting, therefore it is also a lie. Either way, neither the deliverance clip nor scripture can possible lead us to believe TB Joshua really is here to liberate the world – that job started on the cross of calvary and continues to this day, no thanks to (false) prophet TB Joshua.
This video is just another shocking example of SCOAN promoting TB Joshua as a messiah, remember he has already been named the “Jesus of our generation” and the “messiah of our time” on Emmanuel TV, and no attempt has been made to correct these statements.
