The General overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua is a controversial figure that is well known for his massive healings, deliverance and unparalleled charitable works. As humble as the Prophet is in disposition, the controversy surrounding him and his Ministry has made some so called men of God especially those of his own country tag him a false Prophet. Their claims are based on questions like; who mentored him, his theological school, his earthly spiritual father and the controversial pattern of his healings and deliverance. They make these claims as though God does His things according to men’s tradition or has to consult them before He anoints His Prophet but little do they know that the things of the spirit can never be comprehended by man’s point of view; there are biblical histories of great men of God that had an encounter with God and were used to perform great signs and wonders without human mentorship or earthly spiritual fathers. Even this present generation of the church look up to these great Apostles and Prophets of God as heroes of faith.
Nevertheless, according to Prophet T.B. Joshua, what men don’t understand they call names and what they understand they destroy. Even Christ Jesus was maltreated and called all sort of unkind names. The same people who unjustly accused Christ were the once that crucified Him because His teachings and ways were different from man’s tradition. They believed in the Law of Moses while Christ came to usher mankind into the era of grace. Today, Christ Jesus has the greatest followers on earth, for Christians in nations all over the world believe in Him as the only saviour and redeemer.
It seems history is repeating itself because the rejection and name calling Christ and other Apostles of old experienced during their reign is similar to what the Prophet is facing today among his people.
Recently, Mrs. Vera Baboun the Mayor of Bethlehem (the birth place of Christ) and Fr. Peter Vasko OFN, the President of Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land, sent their Christmas greetings to the Prophet and Emmanuel.tv partners, recognizing the love the Prophet has for the work of God, calling for a persistent cordial relationship and look forward to seeing him again in the Holy Land.

As ironic as this may sound, biblical history thought us that the forefathers of the Israelites did not value the Prophets of their time. They even crucified Christ Jesus and his apostles. But today, their present generation in repentance have seen the significance of Christ coming and now appreciate the love of Christ in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua. However, the Prophet whom the Israelites now honour for his love for Christ and the Church is the same Prophet most Nigerian clergies still see as false.
Indeed, this is a true reflection of the wise adage of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ that says “A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” – Mark 6:4. We hope this present generation learn from history and make sure it does not repeat itself.
