Confess and be free – Those behind SCOAN Tragedy

Having read through most propaganda of TB Joshua haters online – the allegations of the people coming out of their woodwork with nooses and stakes crying prosecute Him, prosecute Him, at the top of their voices. Here are some thoughts on this new video for anyone who cares to be objective enough.

Watching the new CCTV video from TB Joshua on the synagogue building catastrophe really puts the tragedy in perspective for those who are not already impervious to the truth. The pressure fumes emanating from the sides of the building just seconds before its eventual dissolve shows that something most certainly exploded from within the building with excessive force. The fumes literally gushed out of the sides of the building with so much pressure that confirms the preceding effect of powerful explosives. The pressure fumes gushed out with such high velocity that they overtook a man hastily fleeing away from the disaster; though the man was already at a considerable distance from the building before the incident.

More so, if you watch the moment of the incident closely to the right of the screen, you can observe large concrete blocks literally flung high into the air at a far distance from the building; travelling in a parabolic path whilst in projectile motion. This confirms that the concrete blocks have gained momentum from an energy source (at a point) to be able to fly so high and far away from the building at such velocity. According to newton’s law of motion: A body will remain in its state of rest or uniform motion unless it is acted upon by a force. Thus, the forceful projection of those concrete blocks totally reveals they were given an initial velocity by the violent explosions that occurred. This is in stark contrast to critic’s alleged theory of a structural defect caused collapse. The ‘defect caused collapse’ theory would have been irrevocably established if and only if those concrete blocks were falling from rest with an initial velocity of zero – as a type of free fall under gravity.

Even If one were to be super-humanly gracious to these critics, by assuming the worst case scenario that the foundation structure of that building was weak, the truth resurfaces again that it had for long previously supported the building and hence was in some measure solid. Therefore, if their assumptions were in the least correct of it being a collapse due to structural defects, we should have witnessed the exact point where the dead and live weight of the building overwhelmed its allegedly ‘inadequate’ support. This would have been made known by cracks and fissures in the building walls and pillars. Hence, practically speaking, the building would not have collapsed entirely in just four seconds. If critic’s assumption were in the least correct, then, while the tragedy happened, the expected resistance of the allegedly inadequate support would also have been noticed according to newton’s third law which states that to every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. But there was nothing of this but the rapid dissolution of a six storey building in four seconds to an unrecognizable rubble.

In conformity with the above: A building and constructions expert who also attests to have watched several buildings being demolished during the Gautrain, reveals that a building that falls by itself due to a ‘structural defect’ will NOT:

1. Fall down COMPLETELY FLAT; some walls will remain standing.

2. Will NOT fall down INWARDLY; some will fall to the sides.

3. Will NOT fall down at the SPEED this one fell, which was about four seconds.

4. It should start showing CRACKS and FOREWARN that it is about to fall.

Someone on seeing this collapse said it collapsed like sugar crumbling. A South African survivor by name Van Der Byl who lost his wife in the tragedy insists that TB Joshua should not be blamed for the incident. His narration of the events leading to the incident gives further confirmations of the above points. The points gleaned from his statements can be summarized thus:

1. He stated that there was NO WARNING SIGN that such a thing would happen.

2. He affirmed that NONE of the PILLARS had broken off.

3. He stated that The building did not TILT to any SIDE

4. As they were in the dining room on the GROUND FLOOR, he just noticed that the opposite side BROKE OUT.

5. In THREE SECONDS; the whole building crashed on top of them.

6. HE classified the materials being used in the building at TOP QUALITY, including the steel.

Another survivor of the incident khathuathelo Ramovha speaking to the BBC expressed how He heard a very small sound shiiiiii….shiiiiii….shiiiiii – something like a wired bomb that had to run that wire before it could reach were the bomb is – rrrrrrrrrrrr…….grrrrrrrrrrrr so quick and wha… the building came down…..”
From about 00:34 of the video below:

It is very sad that people are feigning blindness to something as glaring as the truth that this is a premeditated and concerted attack on the SCOAN. How can anyone be so blind not to see that the dissolution of a large six storey building to a pile of rubble in just four seconds is not normal? Unfortunately, there as so many of such people, than those who have eyes and can see with them. Even If many people are so blind to these facts, we are glad not the leaders, especially the president of South Africa who is quoted to have said:

“…TB Joshua should be spared criticism for the collapse of a church building which resulted in the deaths of at least 84 South Africans…”The outpouring of criticism is unwarranted and calls for the Public Protector to be deployed to Nigeria are a gross over reaction,” the president said.
With this comment he seems to believe that the building was attacked, but this statement is a safe way of expressing what he believes while simultaneously not appearing to be subservient to TB Joshua’s stand on the issue. Nigeria, your hypocrisy stinks in every corner and alleyway, the manner in which you cry more than the bereaved.

Don’t blame T.B. Joshua; investigate ‘strange aircraft’ – South African survivor

image124South African eye-witness, Anthony Van Der Byl, who was at the scene when the Synagogue building collapsed, has warned that people should not blame the leader of the church, T.B Joshua, for the incident but rather, they should investigate the “strange aircraft” which was captured hovering around the building.

Van Der Byl, made these comments via a telephone interview on Channels Television’s Saturday breakfast programme.

The Founder and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Temitope B. Joshua, had linked the collapse of the six storey building within the premises of the church headquarters in Lagos, to a “strange aircraft”, which he said hovered around the building before it collapsed.

Byl, who lost his wife to the accident, narrated the events leading to the collapse, noting that there was no warning that such a thing would happen.

According to him, he and his wife had been about to eat lunch, before the building collapsed.

“We were in the dining room on the ground floor; As we were talking, all of a sudden, I just noticed that the walls on the opposite side broke out.

“It just took about three seconds and then the whole building came on top of us.”

He noted that there was no warning as the entire building came crashing down.

None of the pillars had broken off and the building did not tilt to any side.

“Many people all over the world, even the reports in South Africa are trying to point fingers at the structure (the building, how it was built, what material was being used, the building)”, he said, adding that he had seen the materials used in building the structure, before the collapse.

“It was top quality material, including the steel”, he insisted, stating that “no one of the news reporters is talking about the footage, that’s been sent to them by the Prophet, on the plane that was hovering around, flying very low.

“No one is talking about that plane”, he argued, urging the public to “stop putting the blame on the prophet.”

He further claimed that the building collapsed as though dynamites had been placed at all corners of the building and detonated.

Byl, who was discharged from the hospital on Sunday, noted that he was yet to see his wife’s corpse as the search process and the different mortuaries was “tormenting”.

According to him, DNA experts from South Africa were working to identify his wife and the other bodies.

He, however, noted that he had been miraculously healed by T.B Joshua who had touched all his wounds.

“A miracle happened. My wounds instantly healed by the power of God”, he said.

I am coming to South Africa – TB Joshua

Embattled Nigerian ‘Prophet’ T.B. Joshua declared in his church service today that he will be visiting South Africa once in a month ‘in memory of the martyrs of faith’.

Joshua relayed the message in his church service on Sunday 21st August 2014 following the tragic building collapse at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) that left 84 South Africans dead and hundreds more injured.

“Those who are affected in one way or another and those who passed onto glory, their greatest desire is to see that the work of salvation they died and suffered for continues and reaches unreachable places,” Joshua declared, a message subsequently relayed via his official social media portals on Facebook and Twitter.

“For that, what they are coming here for should be taken to meet them in their country,” he stated to applause from foreigners but a muted response from Nigerian congregants.

“Once in a month, I will be travelling to South Africa to meet people from South Africa and other nations who find South Africa easier to visit, in memory of martyrs of faith,” the controversial cleric stated in a broadcast transmitted live on Emmanuel TV, one of Africa’s most popular television stations.

Joshua quickly countered any insinuation that his visitations will be to challenge other South African churches. “My ministration in South Africa will not be on Sunday so that people will have the opportunity to attend their respective churches,” he explained.

“This kind of faith expressed by South Africans deserves this kind of blessing from God,” he added.

Joshua thanked people for the messages of condolence and encouragement The SCOAN had received from supporters around the world. “I have been your pastor, preaching to you. Now, it is your turn that you are preaching to me. It is your turn that you are giving back what you have received in terms of preaching, teaching and counselling,” he said.

Referring to the biblical principle in Ecclesiastes 3, Joshua continued, “There is a time to give and a time to receive. There is a time to laugh and a time to cry. There is a time to be born and a time to die. Thank you for understanding the time that I am in.

”The cleric acknowledged that the decision would have some adverse effects on Nigeria but insisted it was a ‘revelation from God’ that he must obey.

He further called on the South African government to be involved in organising the monthly meetings, knowing that ‘mammoth crowds’ would attend.

Taking a trip down memory lane, the embattled pastor played a clip of a man he claimed was the first South African to visit The SCOAN 15 years ago. The Emmanuel TV archive clip showed a pastor named Francois Van Zyl telling the congregation that ‘persecution’ would soon cause T.B. Joshua to travel worldwide.

Strangely, the broadcast on Emmanuel TV was intermittently disrupted due to technical problems before Joshua arrived to deliver the message.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE SYNAGOGUE, CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS IN RESPECT OF THE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2014 INCIDENT

“Emmanuel – God is with us.

“The pain of one is the pain of all. It is indeed a sad and painful moment for the families and friends who have lost loved ones. It is equally so for us in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (The SCOAN), under the leadership of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

“On Friday, September 12, 2014, at about 12:44pm, one of the buildings on The SCOAN property unexpectedly collapsed, tragically resulting in death and injury. Nigerians and citizens of other nations were affected. This incident was preceded by the appearance of a strange aircraft which flew very low over the building four times and then disappeared.

“Since the day of this incident, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, its members and partners, have worked in collaboration with the Nigerian, South African and other nations’ authorities to ensure that survivors are rescued, attended to with the best medical treatment, cared for in the most humane and hospitable manner and reunited with their families, while those who passed on – martyrs of the Kingdom of God – are retrieved, identified and treated respectfully.
Amongst those we are working hand-in-hand with, are: The Federal Government of Nigeria, the Government of the Republic of South Africa, Lagos State Government, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), the Lagos State Ministry of Health – doctors and nurses, the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), the Red Cross, the Nigeria Police Force and various Non-governmental and humanitarian organisations and construction and engineering corporations.

“It is very sad that inaccurate reports are coming from some quarters that we are not cooperating with the rescue teams and other agencies in collating information and providing assistance on the incident. Contrary to this, we want to categorically state that the church has provided assistance when and where required and continues to do so – good Christians are good citizens.

“We emphasise our commitment to cooperate with all relevant authorities in establishing the cause of the collapse of the building. The church views this tragedy as part of an attack on The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and in particular, Prophet T.B. Joshua. In due course, God will reveal the perpetrators of this unfortunate tragedy.

“We wish to express our gratitude to all who continue to work tirelessly, show their solidarity and share their condolences in this grievous time, particularly all Government and non-Governmental bodies mentioned above, Diplomatic Missions, National and International media houses, society groups, traditional rulers, all concerned citizens and the residents of our local community, Ikotun-Egbe. We equally appreciate all members and partners of The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV, along with Christians and clergy worldwide for their prayers and support.

“To all those who lost family members and loved ones, please accept our heart-felt commiserations. No one knows by thepresent sign or situation what the future holds. We must therefore live each day as if it were our last and leave tomorrow’s trouble for the One who bore our troubles on the cross. We thank God for the martyrs and we pray for the family members and loved ones left behind.
