T.B. Joshua, who was from Nigeria and was one of the most famous televangelists in all of Africa, died on Sunday at the age of 57. Some of his followers say he knew he was going to die very soon.
Oba Yisa Olanipekun, the sultan of his birthplace, said that the preacher had predicted his death in his last sermon. According to the idea that TB Joshua predicted his own death, the Oba Yisa said, “If you listened to his last sermon two days ago, you would realize that he already knew he was ready to leave.”
The preacher died at 2:00 a.m. on June 6. No one knows what caused his death. On June 6, his church’s Facebook page, The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), made the news public that he had died.
A Facebook post from T.B. Joshua Ministries says that Prophet TB Joshua said, “Time for everything: time to come here to pray and time to go home after the service.” This was at the Emmanuel TV Partners Meeting on June 5, 2021.
God sent the Prophet TB Joshua home, which was the right thing to do and was in line with God’s will. During his last hours on earth, he gave God everything he had. This is why he was born, why he lived, and why he died.
Who Was Tb Joshua?
People thought that TB Joshua, a preacher from Nigeria, was one of the most important evangelists on the continent. He was born into a low-income family on June 12, 1963. The prophet said he was in his mother’s womb for 15 months and called him a “wonder child.”
He said that when he was young, he had seen God in heaven and that he had been “predicted” 100 years before. In 1987, in response to one of these visions, he started his own ministry called The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
In the late 1990s, he became famous around the same time other pastors started doing “miracle” shows on national TV. Since then, the ministry has said it has cured all kinds of diseases, including HIV/Aids.
People from all over the world went to his services every week in Lagos, which is the largest city in Nigeria. Joshua, who was just called “the Prophet” by his followers, was one of the organization’s main leaders. Forbes called him “Nigeria’s most controversial preacher.”
He often went to South America, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Africa. He was also in charge of the Christian TV station Emmanuel TV. In 2014, at least 116 people, most of them South Africans, died when one of his churches fell down. The coroner said in a Lagos court that “the church was responsible because of criminal negligence,” but he was never charged.
Also, YouTube shut down his account just a few months before he died because videos of the pastor leading prayers to “cure” gay people were said to be examples of hate speech.
Facebook almost deleted one of his videos in which he hit a woman and said he was getting rid of a “demonic spirit.” He was married to Evelyn, and they had three daughters.
Pastor Tb Joshua Cause Of Death
A pastor named TB Johnson may have died on June 5, not long after he did a live broadcast. The reason for his death, however, has not been found.
A post on his Facebook page, which has more than five million fans, said, “God has taken His servant.”
Reports say that Francis left a mass on Saturday night to take a short break, but he did not return to finish the mass. The audience didn’t understand the problem until it took a long time before the preacher came back. At two in the morning, his body was found when his apartment was searched.
According to Kenya’s Daily Nation, Lagos Police Commissioner Hakeem Odumosu said that he found out about the preacher’s death around 2:00 a.m. on Sunday. “I had to tell his family right away, and they told me it was true. At this point, we don’t really know what happened, but I can tell you that he was preaching when he suddenly got sick and had to leave the church to rest.
The Daily Nation said that Mr. Odumosu said that the pastor was officially declared dead by a hospital around 3 a.m.
