A former General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, Agbala Itura, Prophet Samuel Abiara, has revealed why people hated the late Temitope Balogun Joshua, aka TB Joshua, of the Synagogue Church of All Nations.
Abiara disclosed that people hated TB Joshua because he followed the foot steps of Jesus Christ.
Speaking at the thanking service in honour of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, founder, on Sunday, Abiara insisted that the deceased was a man of God.
The CAC Evangelist described TB Joshua as a pride to the body of Christ in Nigeria and around the globe.
According to Abiara: “I am here to tell the whole world that Prophet TB Joshua is a man of God and the body of Christ in Nigeria did not hate him, we loved him. The world will miss him.
“He is pride to the body of Christ across the globe. He is loved by all; widows, orphans, the less privileged all love him. He is a man of God that followed the footsteps of Jesus Christ. His life should be a lesson for everyone, he is a humanitarian, he is a giver.
“If you are a true disciple of Jesus Christ, some people will insult you. Jesus Christ was insulted by some set of people. As a believer, it is not a new thing if some people gang up and hate you.
“If God loves someone and you said you did not love him or her, that is your problem. Prophet TB Joshua was not a lazy man of God, he prayed, fasted and preached the gospel.”
Abiara urged ministers, workers and members not to leave SCOAN but to continue the good works of the deceased.
“Ministers, disciples, workers including all the members in the church must not leave this church because of the death of the man of God. Stay and pray for the deceased family, encourage them and continue the good work,” he said.
Prophet TB Joshua, who died last month at the age of 57, was buried on Friday within the church premises in Lagos State.
