BREAKING: SCOAN to be prosecuted for criminal negligence over building collapse

The collapse building that killed 116 people

The collapse building that killed 116 people

Coroner Oyetade Komolafe has ruled that SCOAN were criminally negligent, and should be investigated and prosecuted, “The church was culpable because of criminal negligence resulting in the death of the victims” (Source: BBC). The contractor will also be investigated.

TB Joshua was criticised by the coroner for being the only one of 32 witnessed called before the court to not turn up, “Among the individuals and organisations summoned, only Prophet TB Joshua refused to testify,” he told the court. SCOAN’s nonsensical theory involving an unidentified aircraft and futuristic weapons was ruled out by “a string of expert witnesses” (Source: Yahoo news).

This ruling may not surprise our more level headed readers, but it is an enormous victory for the rule of law in Nigeria. It makes a loud and clear statement that nobody is above the law, even a self proclaimed “man of god” with a large following and millions in the bank. Well done Lagos State Magistrate Oyetade Komolafe, we salute your courage and conviction, you have done your country a great service.

What happens next for TB Joshua? Since he is currently keeping a low profile in Central America, we predict he will not be reappearing any time soon. In fact it seems likely the SCOAN ministry will now slowly fade away. However, even if this does happen, the story is far from over. Please join us in praying for the following points:

  • For the victims of the building collapse and the families of the deceased, pray that this verdict helps them find closure.
  • For the disciples still in SCOAN. They will be confused and scared at the verdict, but as often happens in a crisis, will probably dig in deeper. Pray that God reveals the truth to them and gives them a chance to escape the cult and be reunited to the families and friends who dearly long to see them.
  • For the ongoing investigation and forthcoming prosecution, pray that the truth is revealed and justice is served.
  • For peace in Nigeria. TB Joshua has many ferociously loyal supporters. This verdict will not go down well with them. It would not be surprising if violence broke out as a result of this news.
  • For the safety of Lagos State Magistrate Oyetade Komolafe.

  1. T.b. Joshua Indicted By Coroner’s Inquest by odeotito: 5:47pm
    Always wondered why he did ALL in his power to stop the Coroner’s Inquest if his hands were clean!! My thinking was that – finding out the cause of the disaster – hopefully to prevent a reoccurrence was the least he could have encouraged in appreciative memory of folks who died in the unfortunate incident!!!

  2. We thank the Almighty God for this ruling. TB Joshua thought he could sacrifice innocent souls and get away with it but once again God has exposed him as a lying false prophet. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace.

  3. What I think is that, you people are working for Satan. I wil forever believe in Tb Joshua as a prophet of the most high God. Immanuel!

    • We declare that Jesus Christ is Lord and has defeated your false private prophet and exposed him of what he is like. A thief, a liar, a deceiver and a scammer. And Jesus prevailed you all you horible evil people you are. You have got your cumuppance for what you have sown.

  4. Why you TB Joshua watch can’t you just preach the Gospel of Christ instead of spending all your life focusing only on TB Joshua. Please stop these non sense you are writing every day, we love the man of God and we will still love him. We pray for God protection over his life.

  5. The writing is on the wall.
    And as we are evidently living in the end times, some “accounts” must be settled.
    And since man was not willing to settle them, God is.
    Time for closure SCOAN.
    REMEMBER WHEN THIS ALL UNFOLDED.
    After what incident?
    Because, yes, those “few” abused souls-who by the way are MANY, down the road- ARE important to God and NOT TBJ.
    For it is all about Jesus.
    And Christ and His Body are one.
    And the Church is His Body.
    AND WE ARE HIS BODY, WE ARE THE CHURCH.

  6. Can you please explain to me in ‘laymen’s’ terms what this outcome mean?. Are they only now going to investigate properly or are they going to throw him in jail? Sorry for being ignorant, but…
    I suppose tbj will now, after this verdict, be able to hear clearly from God, as to which direction he must take …?!?!
    Let’s watch and see.

  7. TB JOSHUA IS SAFE, IN THE HANDS OF GOD. MAN/MEN/ CAN SAY AND DO WHAT THEY WANT, BUT GODS WORD IS FINAL. PROPHET TB JOSHUA HAS CONQUERED THIS, EVEN BEFORE TODAY. HE IS A REAL MAN OF GOD AND NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.

    • Tb Joshua is hiding. And just as in FIFA and Seb Blatter he will be investigated by those that are righteous and just. The noose is closing around the scammer and liar. The false private prophet is scheming for the 20th of July 2015. With other liars, scammers and thieves and robbers of souls. Let him appear before the Court and swear upon his Bible to speak the truth, nothing but the truth, which he is incapable of.

  8. SCOAN 07/06/15: Announcement: Message from Prophet T B Joshua

    Another lie – tbj is not back.

    So he is waiting on God or is he waiting on the court verdict?

    What a appropriate place to hide – Mexico!

  9. Finally some justice is done. I am just saddened by the fact that the fanatics won’t see the truth even when it states them in the face.

    Deepest condolences and heartfelt emathy to the families that lost loved ones here. At least the verdict proves that there was strictural failure. Which leads to prove that it’s always been about profits and money, not souls.
    May all men be liars and God alone be true. The truth can never be hidden forever.

  10. Praise God!

    Some are waking up-

    Church’s ‘crime of negligence’

    Lindo Whittle, spokesman for the Maphumulo family, said: “I gave him (Joshua) the benefit of the doubt even though some of the things his church people told us didn’t add up, but these revelations now make me question a lot of things.”
    Sithole became tearful when she spoke of the inquest’s findings, saying she always suspected negligence, because they had been told that the building was being renovated when the disaster occurred.
    “My question was why they allowed hundreds of people to stay in the building before construction was completed. Inspectors assured them that it was secure for occupation, but Joshua later said it had been attacked,” she added.
    “There was a lack of sincere empathy from the time the building collapsed, because we kept phoning them to find out about the wellbeing of our family members, but it took days to get a straight answers from them.

  11. What sets humans apart from apes is our ability to reason. Sadly there are many people out there who refuse to use this God given asset. The fact that the course of the building collapse was poor workmanship was clear from the start. It defeats logic to see some people refuse to accept the truth just because they love their “prophet”. Yet if all his followers put him to task and asked him to accept the responsibility, he would come out a better man and it would do his church a lot of good. I am sure even the prosecutors would be feel for him. And for those of us who have always doubted him, we would say may be there is some good in him.

      • @ TBJW,

        Can a leopard change his spots ? Or a tiger change his stripes ? Or a fox change his colour ?

        I cannot believe that you feel sorry for him. After all the pressure then cave in ???? Then it is clear it is not genuine the slippery snake and he is. The thief and robbers of souls to progress his lies. If no good was there, no good will be under the pressure of the Law. Only the Holy Spirit can change a man and he does not operate in that. A scammer that hides for convenience. No Jezebel was after him. He did it to himself. Let the cunning fox be burned out of his lair and have no rest. Disgusting man.

      • @Jesse when did I say I felt sorry for him? However, it would be the best possible outcome if he repented for his sins and deception, willingly took responsibility and paid the consequences. I’m not sure I have the faith for that, but the bible is full of people just as bad as TB Joshua who genuinely repented and turned to Christ.

      • We thank god,for this judgment, kindly help me to understand it does,t mean.the church wlii close for investigations or what,

  12. TBJW and @wakayima, I second.
    We are not out on a rampant against TBJ but against the lying and deceptive spirit behind him.
    At best, repentance and assumption of responsibility concerning all abomimation that has taken place using the Name of Jesus by TBJ and SCOAN at large, would serve as an act of atonment and justification for all victims concerned as well as a sanctuary for the deceived.
    It’s about restoration and not destruction @Jesse.
    Now if the above scenario does not materialize-and unfortunately this seems to be the case- then I am more than convinced that God will pass His Judgement, just as He will for all those who deceive and abuse in His Name.
    And, as long as He leads us, we will warn.
    But our hearts must remain pure, for if bitterness and hatred nest therein we indeed do not know of which spirit we are no matter our cause.

    • @ TBJW, Jeremiah,

      I did not mention destruction, but if you still believe that that can be done, then Satan can change too, but Satan will not. I have seen and personally what his “powers” can do. Christians are deceived. They hold on to whatever looks, like, feels like while they are struggling still big time with countless things. I did not say that there will be no certain things in your life. But what they have let into the Body of Christ is not what the Holy Spirit is, it’s very close but No Cigar as I always have said. TB joshua does not want to change and is defiant against the law, which means he omits the fact that God has installed the powers that be in countries. Paul says so In the Bible. He is doing what Satan does as is written.

      Isaiah 14:12″How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! 13″But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. 14’I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’…

      And what II Thessalonians 2 says and what Revelation 2 says. And he is saying here that he is above that and that is rebelling against God’s ordinance in the earth by the Law and the Law of the Land. He is an imposter and trying to overthrow what has been ruled. He himself said that a Christian should not fight court cases and look what he is doing. He is a serial liar and horrid psychopath and he is in love with himself and his self established handy work. And so are his fanatic cursing in their way followers. They have no respect for the law of the land that proceedes from the Mouth of God in Deuteronomy and Leviticus. Away with such. What he does is devilish and from the earth as God says. He is full of pride which is a hall mark of a high level evil spirit or demon , if not Satan himself.

  13. EPISTLE 3

    THE GUARDIAN ANGEL OF THE ELECT: TESTING THE SPIRITS

    This is a testimony that sheds more light in testing the spirit to make sure it is of God so as not to fall into the trap of false prophets especially those antichrist prophets who cannot, will not, shall not and should not repent as their CASE IS CLOSED according to the Word of God that accurately prophesied of them and their nefarious activities in this precarious endtime. We elects should not rejoice over their pre-determined eternal destruction neither should we gloat over it but should keep warning their innocent victims they are deceiving to depart from their midst lest they partake of their destruction as it was with the prophets of Belial in Bible times such as Korah, Hopni, Phinehas & Jezebel whose destruction the Holy Spirit personally supervised. Likewise their die-hard, ardent and unrepentant followers namely the SYNAGOGIANS a.k.a antichrist christians who will never ever repent even if God allowed them to live on the earth for another 900 years like Methuselah. This is what the final judgment of the Word of God has for both the Synagogian followers and their master:

    Malachi 2:12…The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob

    Jeremiah 43:11… And when he cometh, he shall smite the land of Egypt, and deliver such [synagogians] as are for death to death; and such as are for captivity to captivity; and such as are for the sword to the sword…

    It is Written: Let the Will of God be done and the Word of God prevail!

    One early morning as I lay on my bed, a soft spoken voice woke me up from sleep. The voice said that I may call him by the name JAMES as a sort of pseudonym for that was not his real name. So this voice a.k.a Mr. James went further to tell me that he was sent from above to tell me some good tidings many of which I would rather not mention as they were very private and personal.

    But, as regards the topic of this website suffice it to say that he told me a lot of private things about the present and the future many of which have come to pass while others are yet to be fulfilled. Knowing fully well that Satan can also pose as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15…For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers [of darkness] also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end [eternal destruction] shall be according to their works…).

    I decided to test this spirit to confirm if it is a correct or contrary spirit (1 John 4:1-3…Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try [test] the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world…)

    As at this time I was fully awake with my red flag up and alarm bells ringing at red-alert. Mr. James who I couldn’t see but only heard his voice the way you would hear the voice of someone sitting or standing beside you yet you are unable to see him, told me in a nutshell that he was sent from God to tell me that there was a breakthrough in certain areas of my life. He also said that we had met before several times in the spirit realm or dream & visionic world to be more precise and described some of these spiritual encounters where I was in several life and death situations or attacks and he came to my rescue which I could still vividly remember as they were still as fresh as daisies in my memory making me to know for a fact that those dreams we offhandedly discard as meaningless thoughts or nightmares in our sleep mode are real time occurrences in the spirit realm or world.

    Then he dropped a bombshell! He made me to understand that he was truly and indeed My Guardian Angel! That was when I said to myself enough was enough and decided then and there to scrutinize and check him out. So I told him to confess out loud the “Scriptural Test” of trying the spirits as prescribed in: 1 John 4:2-3! Then he said that of a truth it is a test no one (spirit) can pass except he is of God. So I insisted that since he has said so, he should kindly say it verbally and verbatim. Then he said unequivocally without stammering, stuttering or stalling through the sentence in his own words which an antichrist spirit or antichrist-christian always does whenever you subject them to this scriptural test as they can never ever say the caps highlighted scriptural statement below in a simple, straight sentence as this angel said it:

    “I BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS COME IN THE FLESH…and that He is my Lord and Saviour”

    So I was suspicious and asked him why he should say that Jesus is his “Saviour” when obviously, Jesus only came to save men and not angels. Then he replied that indeed our Saviour JESUS IS THE LORD, GOD ALMIGHTY and he confessed it just as it is written in the scriptures in order to fully convince me beyond any doubt whatsoever that he is truly a messenger sent from God (1 Corinthians 12:3…Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man [or angel] can say that JESUS IS THE LORD [GOD ALMIGHTY], but by the Holy Ghost…). I knew then and there without a doubt that this angelic guy a.k.a Mr. James was truly my guardian angel from God.

    Snatching up this rare first time angelic opportunity to actually and physically interview a real live angel of God with all my five senses intact, I promptly started to ask him many questions especially about myself one of which was that if truly I will eventually make it to heaven when I finally depart from this world (his answer to that particular question remains in my private domain); another of which was if it was possible for believers to live completely above sin which was a major challenge for me as such, to which he told me that all believers are very capable of living above sin (that is by not committing a single sin at all in thoughts, words and deeds day in and day out) by the enabling power of the Holy Spirit. There was a time I slipped up and used the word “stupid” to describe my opinion of something during our discourse which lasted for over 30 minutes and he gently reproved me saying that he found the word “stupid” as an offensive word in his “angelic vocabulary” and I then made a mental note to also strike the word “stupid” out of my own human vocabulary. Since angels consider it offensive it means too that the Holy Spirit (God) dwelling in me also regards it as offensive (Ephesians 4:30…grieve not the Holy Spirit of God…).

    ATTENTION: if you want to test or try the spirit in any prophet or believer scope them out by wisely asking them to read that portion of the scripture (1 JOHN 4:2-3) and kindly explain it for you to understand properly. Then listen attentively to how they will say these five crucial words while reading it out loud (JESUS IS COME IN THE FLESH). If they are of God they will say it seamlessly, smoothly and automatically the same way you would. But if not, then “Houston we have a problem!” Because they can’t say it smoothly no matter how many times you try to make them say it, as they will always stutter through it or say it slowly between breaks and pauses.

    By this scriptural means of trying the spirits in false prophets & ministers I was able to discern and catch the contrary spirit in them and consequently discontinue any contact I had with them likewise you. Trust me it works like clockwork! Plus its fun watching them struggling to say these five worded sentence like some kindergarten kid learning to read. Still a doubting Thomas? Well why don’t you go test that your “man of God” you believe in so much? You never know though, at worst you might just pull out an “ace agent” of darkness from the pit of hell fire or at best you might well confirm an “ace agent” of light from the clouds of heaven.

    Whichever the penny drops…heads or tails…take it like that!

    Among the many revelations my guardian angel gave me that morning at the dawn of the day before he departed, many of which were very private, the one that keeps ringing a bell deep in my heart is when he told me with a mournful voice that we ELECT believers do not really know who we are. In his own parting words to me, he said:

    “IF ONLY YOU KNEW WHO YOU ARE.”

    Though it is “uncommon” for the saints of God to physically “meet & greet” their guardian angels assigned to them from the day of their birth in their entire lifetime on earth (Matthew 18:10… Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones [saints]; for I say unto you, That in heaven their [guardian]angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.…); but as the mighty end-time elects of God, I really do pray to God to instruct your own “guardian angel” to physically or spiritually reveal himself to you one-on-one (as in the case of the mighty early-time elects of God like Peter whose guardian angel came to him to physically release him from Herod’s imprisonment) in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen! (Acts 12:13-17… And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda. And when she knew Peter’s voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate. And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, IT IS HIS [GUARDIAN] ANGEL. But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished. But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison….).

    Nowadays I sometimes recognize “Mr. James” in the spirit realm whenever he shows up to assist me especially during some very gruesome spiritual warfare encounters when I see him battling certain demonic entities on my behalf and I dare say as vivacious, gentle and benign as he may appear to me he is equally as violent, grim and brutal in mercilessly, furiously, viciously and ruthlessly attacking and destroying these demons or spiritual criminals he called “armed robbers” in those halcyon days when I was being spiritually trained by the Holy Spirit and His holy angels in the “School of the Spirit” on how to engage and destroy demons in these thrilling, high-octane, adrenalin-kick, action packed spiritual war-games at mid-night I love to relish and relish to love.
    Boy let the games begin!

    Be aware that the real names of angels are a heavenly secret and they will never ever reveal their heavenly names to you except ONLY the two archangels Gabriel & Michael as commanded by The Father (Judges 12:17-18…And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honour? And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my [heavenly] name, seeing it is SECRET?…) & (Luke 1: 18-19…And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. And the angel answering said unto him, I AM GABRIEL [the archangel], that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.).

    Ever since that angelic encounter I’ve been trying to discover my true spiritual identity in Christ by His grace which becomes more manifold the more I unravel it. Because for an angel of God to say “IF ONLY WE KNEW WHO WE ELECT BELIEVERS ARE” implying that we are like an elephant with the mindset and mentality of an eel.

    OH MAY THE MAN UPSTAIRS HAVE MERCY!

    PS: this little scriptural gemstone from the “Mysteries of the Kingdom” was revealed to me in the “School of the Spirit” under the direct One-on-one tutelage of the Holy Spirit and his holy angels during my last 10 year Hand-in-hand “spiritual stroll” with Jesus Christ in the Straight & Narrow Way of Truth into the Kingdom of God.

  14. To TB Joshua and devotees:

    3 If any man teach otherwise and consent not to wholesome words, even the Words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

    4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings (guessings),

    5 Perverse disputings (engage in arguments) of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN (of money) IS GODLINESS-

    FROM SUCH WITHDRAW THYSELF – 1 Timothy 63-:5 KJV

    Just one of the reasons to say:

    “Goodbye tbj!”

    “Goodbye!”

  15. You are in the Bible tbj-

    You have been caught out as a manslayers- manslaugterers.

    By an earthly court.

    Oeps!

    “Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers/ manslaugterers – for you TB Joshua” -1 Timothy 1:9

    Tbj, you can stop fearing satan in your life, start fearing the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose laws you keep on breaking!

    But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear Him- Luke 12:5.

  16. Another who woke up:

    This follows a coroner’s ruling yesterday in Lagos, that Joshua should be prosecuted and his Church investigated. The family of Patricia Mkhulisi, who was among those South Africans killed in the collapse said; “They would find peace knowing that justice prevailed for what happened to their sister.” Her brother, Lwandle Mkhulisi said; “The fact that TB Joshua celebrated his birthday lavishly in the country last month “showed that he is not remorseful for what happened to our families”.

    “This prophet was supposed to ask families who are still mourning if they would be comfortable with his celebration, but instead, he shoved invites in our faces, telling us about how he is celebrating the lives of our loved ones.” Mkhulisi said he was even shocked that the South African government allowed the celebration to proceed.

    “I’m 100% in support of the coroner’s recommendation, this man must be prosecuted, he thinks we could just forget what happened while the man of whom our beloved ones died in his watch, goes on with life just like that. Never, he said angrily.’

    Send TB Joshua to prison – Victim’s family

    http://citizen.co.za/420132/send-tb-joshua-to-prison-victims-family/

    • You see @Just Wonder, the thing is he considers himself a “gift to humanity” and so do His disciples, something I heard multiple times from the greek pastor.
      To their eyes this makes him above any law or action, so just the fact he decided to celebrate his birthday in SA makes it a “blessing”. Anything he says or does is a blessing to them, whether it means humiliating them or taking action against what is stated in God’s Word. As the “mouthpiece of God”, according to them, TBJ is the continuation of the Book of Acts, if they could they would rewrite it including him.
      Under such a prospective, if TBJ punishes you, it is a blessing, if TBJ slaps you, it is a blessing, if TBJ abuses you, it is a blessing! This is the kind of absurdity their mind functions in. This is why no matter the evidence you present, no matter the contradiction with God’s Word of his doings, they will say that we are living in a new era and since God is abiding in this man mightily, who are we to question anything he does? They will say: “I may not understand but what I do know is that TBJ has words of eternal life!”
      How can you reason with that?
      How can anyone reason with that?
      DECEPTION.
      Plain and simple.
      Only God can intervene and remove the veil from their eyes, as He did with many of us.

  17. Amen and amen Jeremiah.

    Deception of the first class!

    He is a master deceiver.

    He is an evil man and a imposter, just like the Bible says;

    “Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, but evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
    You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them”…

    2 Timothy 3:12-14.

    My heart is just breaking for the people he deceives!

  18. TB Joshua rejects Nigerian court prosecution order

    Below is full statement by SCOAN

    OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE SYNAGOGUE, CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS IN RESPECT OF THE VERDICT GIVEN BY THE LAGOS CORONER’S COURT RELATING TO THE INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED ON SEPTEMBER 12TH 2014

    The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) rejects the verdict of the coroner on the grounds that it is unreasonable, one-sided and biased. The church maintains its stand that the incident was as a result of sabotage.

    From the verdict given today, we would like the public to take note of the following:

    There was no finding that the church engaged the services of unqualified or incompetent professionals for the construction of the building.

    There was no finding that the church procured substandard materials for the construction of the building, as confirmed by officials of the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) who gave evidence at the coroner and certified the materials used were all approved and of good quality.

    There was evidence that the church had started processing the relevant building approval before the incident, which had been approved and assessed for payment by the appropriate government bodies.

    There was no finding that connected the incident with the lack of a building permit.

    There was no finding that church members prevented the statutory responders from carrying out their rescue duties.

    The church disagrees most vehemently with the finding that the incident was due to structural failure.

    The church considers it strange that the coroner did not refer in its verdict to the evidence of the COREN-registered structural engineer and contractor used by the church nor did it evaluate the conflicting evidence given by civil and structural engineers as to whether or not the incident was as a result of structural failure.

    It was a one-sided verdict which left many issues unaddressed and questions unanswered.

    The church disagrees with the findings concerning the aircraft that hovered over the six-storey building because there was evidence before the court that the incident could have been brought about by external forces such as controlled demolition or an explosion.

    The verdict did not even refer to the CCTV footage which showed the 6-storey building falling in less than 4 seconds – a manner consistent with controlled or externally induced demolition – nor did it refer to the interim report and investigation by the Nigerian police force which pointed to sabotage by external forces.

    The church also disagrees with the finding that foundation failure was a remote cause because that is contrary to the overwhelming expert evidence of the structural engineers invited to the coroner who eliminated foundation failure as a possible cause.

    The recommendation for the investigation and prosecution of the contractors and structural engineers used by the church for criminal negligence is premature because it gives the impression the coroner has found them guilty when a coroner is not allowed in law to make any finding of civil or criminal liability against anybody.

    The recommendation for the investigation of The SCOAN for not possessing the relevant building permits is unwarranted because it did not take into account the evidence that the church had started processing the relevant building approval before the incident. As a matter of fact, the amount payable for the processing had already been assessed by the appropriate government agencies.

    The recommendation that statutory responders should be adequately equipped was informed by the fact that the statutory responders who carried out rescue operations in this case were ill-equipped and ill-trained, and that it was the church that mobilised human and material resources to ensure a successful rescue operation.

    Finally, the coroner recognised that the conduct of the investigation of the incident was compromised by the failure of the appropriate government agencies to take necessary steps to secure and preserve the scene of the incident, which calls into question the integrity and reliability of the entire investigation.

    This is a statement from Barr. Olalekan Ojo, legal counsel to The SCOAN.

    We repeat: No matter how long a lie is sustained, the truth will someday prevail!

  19. Giles,
    When they are in Johannesburg, they are literally 40 min. drive from me. There were time when they have come out physically to me, but the problem is in their minds – they are NOT free. So they keep on running back to him. It is as if he has a hypnotic power over them? They need to be set free in their captures minds and only the Lord Jesus can do that. I have spoken to them about tbj and then they just cut their ties with me, because that is what tbj wants them to do, but they think it is their decisions. You know, he prints it in their minds that the Bible say you should leave father and mother. So he twists it around to suite himself. They must cut ties with family and friends, to follow him.

    • Flies cannot help they are attracted to the blueeee lightttttt itzzz so amazzzzing, zappppppppp ! Kerchingggg !

  20. Everybody that wants to say something about this matter should think twice and inquire from God before you point an accusing finger on the anointed. If I may remind you, some engineers have checked the foundation of the building and confirmed that the building came down in a demolition style. They gave many reasons to prove that. They even concluded that the foundation is capable of carrying more than 10 Story building. If you watch the videos, you would notice that there was a blast from the down floor before the building collapsed. Meaning that something brought it down. Do you want to tell me that TBJ hired someone to do the dirty job. For what reason? KNE

    • @ K Emeaba,

      Because he knew that he can’t keep up with the fake deliverances and funny stories and his desperate attempt to draw attention from the rest of the world to have a pity party so that people feel sorry for him and give him money and support. Not interested in people, but interested in how to expand. Just like the man in Bergen Belsen who was stuffing people by the dozen in the ovens to burn them up until it was going out of hand and he said, “What was I supposed to do ?” More people came for me to burn them up, but the ovens were to small. Only interested in the ovens, not in the human kind. Lesson learned ? Not at all ! You see it right here again.

  21. EPISTLE 4

    IDENTITY OF THE ELECT: WHO AM I?

    Based on this revelation given to me, the Lord confirmed His word spoken to me some time earlier through His angel. In my testimony on testing an angel, I said that the angel who was talking to me physically, though I did not see him face to face but only heard his voice when he told rather pitifully that we elect believers do not know who we really are (Zechariah 4:4…So I answered and spake to the angel talked with me…).

    Early one morning, while I was still on my bed awake and meditating on the Word of God, the Lord gave me a revelation. It came as a flash vision (flash visions are like pictures that God shows to you physically, in order to pass a message across to you and they flash before your eyes in a second or two before they vanish). I saw just the face of a one-eyed demon. The demon had only one left eye, while the place where its right eye would have been was completely blank with just its skin over it. I wondered why God showed me this revelation, but knowing that God reveals to redeem, I promptly acted immediately by prayerfully making a “deep pit” petition against that demon for the Lord to send that particular demon into the “bottomless pit” where demons are imprisoned, chained and tormented until the day of judgment. Which the Lord confirmed in my spirit that He had granted.

    The reason I petitioned the Lord to send that demon to the deep pit is because I knew that demon was up to no good and that was why the Lord had revealed it to me in a flash vision. Besides I have a “Zero Tolerance” attitude for demons & satanists. A few minutes afterwards when I was “mirror preaching” to myself as I usually do whenever I get the “preacher’s urge” which God uses as a method to personally train and teach His ministers on how to preach and teach the word of God to all and sundry, which the scriptures call rehearsing the Word of God (Acts 11:4…But Peter rehearsed the matter [sermon] from the beginning, and expounded [preached] it by order…).

    That was when I got the revelation that blew my mind that morning and sent me tripping to the stars and jumping to hit the ceiling with my head. Psychologists describes it as the Eureka Effect. But this is how Jeremiah describes it when he starts “tripping & jumping” at the revelations of the Word of God (Jeremiah 15:16…Thy words were found [revealed] and I did eat [understand] them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart…). As soon as the revelation of the Word of God I was preaching to myself sank into my heart then I knew the answer to that question:

    WHO AM I?

    I am an ANGEL OF GOD dwelling here on earth!

    Listen carefully to this; this is how the scriptures describes David the King of Israel, a man after God’s own heart (2 Samuel 14:17…for as an ANGEL OF GOD, so is my lord the king [David] to discern good and bad: therefore the LORD thy God will be with thee…). Meaning that David was operating here on earth as an angel of God, and judging (discerning) between what is right and wrong without anyone being able to challenge or stop him. This is exactly what the scriptures means when it says: …he that is spiritual [as an angel] judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man…1 Corinthians 2:15!

    In addition, the scriptures tells us that operating in such angelic wisdom of God makes us established in the Lord that all what we say never falls to ground just like Samuel”s word of knowledge as God will make sure it comes to pass because they are indeed His own words (1 Samuel 3:19-20…And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan even to Beer-sheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD …). To the extent that David’s arch enemy Saul was afraid of his angelic wisdom (1 Samuel 18:14-15…And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the Lord was with him. Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely [as an angel], he was afraid of him…). Is this not exactly the kind of wisdom you would expect from an angel of God if he were to be dwelling here among men?

    This is why the scriptures boldly says that the wisdom of David was like the wisdom of an angel of God (2 Samuel 14:20…and my lord [David] is wise, according to the wisdom of an angel of God, to know all things that are in the earth…). Read the prayer book of Psalms from A to Z and you would know that DAVID THE ELECT was indeed operating like an ANGEL OF GOD here on earth.

    No wonder PAUL THE ELECT another angel of God who also like us once dwelt upon the earth (Galatians 4.14… but received me [Paul] as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus…); had this to say about this superior “hidden” or angelic wisdom we elects are trained, taught and tutored by the Holy Spirit to be speaking and operating in here on the earth which blew and boggled my mind when that revelation hit me hard with the force of a hurricane:

    (1 Corinthians 2:5-8 & 10-14… That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them [elects] that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the [demonic] princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the HIDDEN WISDOM, which God ordained before the world unto our glory. Which none of the princes of this world knew… But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we [elects] have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things [wisdom] that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things [wisdom] of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned…).

    So like an angel of God, we too can know “all things” that are in the earth from the highest skies to the deepest oceans to the hidden thoughts and intentions in the hearts of men and even to the most secret chambers in the kingdoms of darkness just by asking the Holy Spirit to reveal them to us and for sure He will. If you are still struggling to grasp this revelation; this is what our God, the God of gods has said about you endtime elects (Psalm 82:6…I have said, ye are gods [angels]; and all of you [elects] are the children of the most high…) & (Exodus 7:1… And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee [elect] a god to Pharaoh…); and this is what Jesus Christ the Son of God said about you endtime elects (Mark 12:25…For when they [elects] shall rise from the dead, they are as the [spiritual] angels which are in heaven…).

    Meaning that right now, in our re-created spirit man that dwells in our physical human bodies, we are already like the spiritual angels. But, when we die and resurrect with the same glorious body that the Resurrected Christ had, we will then also have our glorious, celestial and angelic body. So for now, we are still angels in the spirit, until we eventually and inevitably become angels both in spirit and in body. That is why Jesus Christ addressed the elect brethren of the Seven Churches as angels (Revelation 2:1…unto the angel..[elect] of the church of Ephesus…). Because in the eyes of the Lord, we are the Lord’s angelic Land-Army physically dwelling on the earth that the Lord uses to fight the Lord’s Battles against the Lord’s enemies in this end time. Do you finally understand?

    My dear Elect Brethren, you MUST understand this very important revelation (Revelation 3:22…he that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches [of the Elects]…). Because I could not understand it initially due to the fact the one-eyed demon had blinded my spiritual warfare “right-eye” from seeing this spiritual truth! (1 Samuel 11:1-2… Then Nahash the Ammonite [devil] came up, and encamped against Jabesh-gilead: and all the men of Jabesh said unto Nahash, Make a covenant with us, and we will serve thee. And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, On this condition will I make a covenant with you, that I may thrust out [blind] all your [spiritual] right eyes, and lay it for a reproach upon all Israel…).

    Know for a fact that if you are spiritually blind in your right eye you are nothing but a lame duck stuck in caked mud for the spiritual foxes to devour at will. That was I why I instantly and prayerfully took charge of that one-eyed demon. That was when my all important right eye of spiritual warfare with which believers see into the realm of the spirit to attack and fight against the enemy was opened. That was when I finally knew and understood the full import of what the scriptures meant when it says:

    No human or demon shall be able to stand against you all your days here on earth because you are an elect angel of God (Joshua 1:5); You have power over all the powers of all your physical and spiritual enemies and there is absolutely nothing they can do against you that you cannot undo neither can they ever be able to hurt you (Luke 10:19);
    You have the Master Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and whatever you allow or disallow here on earth, is allowed or disallowed in heaven (Matthew 16:19); No enemy whether human or demon can be able to fight against you and defeat you (Jeremiah 1:19); In eyery situation of my life you are more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37); Because you have defeated the whole world and all that is in it (1 John 5:4).

    Now you see why an armed robber cannot stand before you to rob you of that which you acquired honestly, for as an angel you will take charge of the situation in the realm of the spirit and bind that devilish spirit of robbery operating in that robber in the Name of Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:1-2… And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years…).

    You see why no yoke of the enemy can be put on your neck for it will be broken because of the angelic anointing operating in you (Isaiah 10:27… his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing…).

    You see why no ruler or president can stop you from doing whatever you want to do that is according to the Word of God and Will of God for you life for God will bulldoze and steamroll them out of your way (1 Chronicles 16:21-22… He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings [presidents] for their sakes, Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm…).

    You see why no false prophet, witch, occultist or marinist can be able to bewitch, enchant, divine, manipulate and fight against you for you will destroy them and paralyze their puny powers in the Name of Jesus Christ (Numbers 23:23… Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel…).

    You see why no demon can ever be a match against you for in the Name of Jesus Christ, you will petition The Father in heaven to send it to the bottomless deep pit (Luke 8:31… And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep [bottomless pit]…).

    Finally, you see why even Satan the dragon, the beast and the antichrist will always flee from you whenever you attack them in the Name of Jesus Christ, for they are less than a match against you in spiritual warfare (Revelation 20:10… And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [antichrist] are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever…)

    That is why what David the elect angel of God while dwelling on earth said you too can boldly say (Psalm 27:1-3…The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom [on earth] shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom [for goodness sake] shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host [enemy army] should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though [physical or spiritual] war should rise against me, in this will I be confident….).

    It is Written:

    Romans 8:29-31…For whom [me] he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many [elect] brethren. Moreover whom [me] he did predestinate, them [me] he also called: and whom [me] he called, them [me] he also justified: and whom [me] he justified, them [me] he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us [me], who on earth can be against us [me]?

    Job 34:29…When He giveth quietness [peace], who then can make [me] trouble…?

    Hey! The above scripture is my own personal and private belief and confession based on the revelation of this angelic wisdom and knowledge of the Word of Truth (Jesus Christ), that has made me relentlessly victorious over every single situation and challenge I have encountered all thru MY LIFE & TIMES IN CHRIST.

    WHAT IS YOURS? (John 8:32…ye shall know the Truth [Jesus Christ], and the Truth shall make you free…). Only remember this: …Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people…Proverbs 14:34!

    Verily you can only be angel of God dwelling here on earth if you truly abide in Christ through holiness, righteousness which simply means total obedience to the Word and Will of God (John 15:7…If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you…).

    This Kingdom Mystery revelation shows you how to have the victorious Mind of Christ!
    But we [elect] have the mind of Christ…1 Corinthians 2:16!

    • Nosa, your posts are largely irrelevant to the subject and they appear to be no more than advertising. You are spamming this thread with your experiences.

      While all may have glorious experiences, we are reminded of what is more sure.
      Read what Peter says after describing a glorious Transfiguration

      2 Peter 1:19 (KJV)
      We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts

      Peter’s faith does not rest on revelations or supernatural encounters but on the WORD OF GOD. I strongly suggest you do the same.

      If you really want to market your free books, start. Blog and serialize it. If the idea is really of God, He will give you an audience. Otherwise on this blog, try and remain relevant

      • Agreed, Vooke. Thanks for your comment. Nosa, please refrain from posting anything not directly revelant to TB Joshua, and please be aware that if I am anything to go by, no-one is really reading your excessively long posts. I just scroll on past as I have read them in the past and found your theology to be rather, shall we say, idiosyncratic and in any case what you write has nothing to do with what the thread is discussing.

  22. Jesse,
    You need to pray to watch your mouth before shooting anything there at your perceived opponents. Whether we agree on anything or not, lengthy offensive glib is not the way to go. Be wise

    • @ Vooke,

      My experience with you is that your post come ovee as sitting in the fence. Like you sit in the middle. Which is extremely provoking to my reading. TB Joshua is a calculating psychopath and no sorry should be given to him until he shows genuine remorse. He does not and so are his horrendous followers. When you write a post it just pisses me off in how you like to compromise. There is no compromise for Satan and his minions. Unless you are a Universalist then perhaps you can’t help yourself. I don’t iike compromise and people who sit upon the fence which side they can sit of join when it comes put for them.

      And I am really in the process of beginning to hate people and their ways to eater down. You are either with God or you just sit with Satan. And if you are not clear in your posts then write more directly whom you are with. You cant duck from both sides. Take care.

      • @Jesse
        If I had a way to contact you privately I would, but since I don’t I will message you here. I don’t know what TB Joshua and SCOAN put you through, but your posts are becoming increasingly bitter, angry and hateful. It is in complete contrast to the kind of speech scripture demands of us (Col 4:6). Please consider taking some time off away from anything to do with TB Joshua and find some peace with God over the hurts you have suffered.

      • @ TBJW,

        Look I understand where you are coming from. But there are here people who clearly do not express whose side they are on. When that is so, my long time observation from them is, are they trying to put everything on the wrong footing. It is increasingly not clear to me in the manner of writing which you also do yourself what side you are on. And then it can be or perhaps that you all belong to SCOAN and use this way to put people on the wrong footing by writing something and it is not black and white but grey. I see several chameleons inside here who blend in with their smarty pants colours and try to mislead others with chosen psychological misleading words. It’s not demonic but carefully chosen to pretend to be somebody else and do they are on this side or on the other side. You are free to deny it and free to agree. But I do not perceive some of you sincere in your approach regarding your own Christian values you display. TB Joshua is one of the charlatans I was able to meet personally as many others as well. I have met them, spoken to them and many are a stain on Christian values that I try to cherish, which others love to stamp upon including some that I have met here. To be clear the attitude of many just horribly sucks because of their terrible arrogance they think they are and how they try everything to destroy of what I experience with them and going into a mode of condescending and feel self righteous into their personal replies. It’s a chat thing, they say things what they normally don’t say to other personally. I find certain Christians increasingly conniving and rather annoying. I find more peaceful attitudes in certain other religions in which I interact daily into than in Christians today. I find certain Christians very very arrogant and the more famous they become the more annoying they become and self righteous of how great they are. So increasingly I draw away from such or I just tell them in their face what crap I find they come over. Although they rather don’t have no interest to sort things out with somebody like my why I dislike them. I really am disgusted by today’s Christianity which becomes more and more a Atheistic attitude. And their are some who deliberately want to sow this inside others and have no interest into anything than themselves and their selfish induced narcistic programmes and continue to destroy people with their sly evil ways of self. If I can’t express this than I just have to sit down to many of you who are always pretending to be better than me, then there is no solution to such cancerous sores that this kind of Christianity produces. Many have become increasingly control freaks of others and just want to drive a spoke into other people’s like for the sake of that they are at any time right no matter what.

        You can see the fruit of it all on the other website of what they sow into people like me. That is a side that comes from that spirit that lives inside SCOAN and many churches today. They will stamp on anything what was a bit normal and want to take control of everything and reprogramme you to become the monsters they are themselves inside. Then they are surprised when someone is replying in a certain way. So far these I have interacted with are the worst people I have ever seen in my life besides one woman on Yahoo chat many years ago. I wonder if their own father and mother can live them. Or even God. These type of people will go out on a limb to destroy everything that was left in others that was good and corrupt it to the core because they want to dram their program into another and turn them spiritual eunuchs and laugh about it every day how they manage to do that by their own accord. When they can’t have their way they hide themselves.

  23. This is exactly how I feel about the deceived Christians in scoan;

    Romans 9:1-3

    9 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,

    2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.

    3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh-

    Have mercy on everyone Lord, have mercy…..

  24. Today the SCOAN yt channel has released a video about a barren woman of botswana bringing her child and praising tb joshua for the miracle in a testimony interview. Even the child says “i love tb joshua”, i have no probs with a child saying that but its amazing, the whole testimony jesus isnt mentioned only in the end when the woman said God made her unbarren through tb joshuas sermon crusade in botswana.
    None of them (woman and child) ever said “i love Jesus/God” in the testimony, but once they say they love that “prophet”, applauds and amens procede as if tb joshua is equivalent to God.

    Ever since the SCOAN church case came in the scene, i havent heard from tb joshua except the last news of him running away to Latin America. What a true prophet! I would view it okay if he was death threatened and he ran away thats justified, but running away from a case about his building collapse…smh something wrong somewhere with this “prophet”.

  25. B4 i even start reading the comment i want to thank the Most High Yahweh for using these prosecutors for this fair judgement. It does not end here i will stand in the gap and pray for the lost souls in this cult and also that joshua be prosecuted.
    Let u sYahwehs children come to repentance for running after these so called prophets and pastors and making them “mediators” between he and them. Our only mediator is Yeshau blessed by his name

  26. This media is full of hatred and i think nothing good can come out of it coz the writer has a curse on his head.Its true our Lord Jesus christ said that a prophet has no honor in his own town.You guys you grieve the holy spirit with your hatred towards the servant of God you will receive your reward for that.As for me and my entire house hold will continue worshiping the God of TB Joshua who is the creator of all things.

    • “Greive the Holy Spirit” ? Oh please. Salvation is not dependent on how people view tb Joshua but how they accept Christ.

      The “God” of Tb Joshua isnt the True God of Israel but he himself is his own god. People have called tb Joshua “jesus of our time” yet this “innocent servant of his own mind (you insert god here)” has not lifted a finger to rebuke or at least correct his listeners to not call him a messiah. Besides his “wise men” and disciples are happy that people call him “messiah”. What prophet takes away God’s glory for himself!

      Tb Joshua is harmful to the teachings and body of Christ, i hope he repents and sincerely comes to Christ. I dont hate him, but his prophecies arent 100% accurate. Its sad that people blindly follow this prophet including some of my relatives listen to him 24/7 as if hes the new Jesus to them.

    • @Ause

      “…the God of TB Joshua who is the creator of all things”

      Sorry my friend, but you are giving this god of TB Joshua too much credit!
      At best this is a myth & wishful thinking on your part!
      At worst, this is actually blasphemy against the true God of the Bible.
      Go ahead & worship this god of TB Joshua which thou hast not known (Deut 13:1-2), just don’t give him credit for the creation – that belongs only to the God of the Bible.
