The founder of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Pastor Chris Okotie has continued to criticize the late founder of The Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly called TB Joshua.
KanyiDaily recalls that following the death of Prophet TB Joshua, Pastor Okotie shared a cryptic post on social media in which he said that the ‘wizard at Endor’ who assumed the title ‘Emmanuel’, has been consumed by divine indignation.
Although Okotie did not mention any name or person in particular in his message, many Nigerians believe the post is in reference to the late TB Joshua, known for his church’s slogan “Emmanuel”.
TB Joshua ‘The Wizard At Endor’ – Chris Okotie
In a recent video titled “The truth about T.B. Joshua” which was posted on his official YouTube channel, Okotie revealed why he called his late colleague ‘The Wizard at Endor.’
Okotie said that he referred to the late TB Joshua as the ‘The Wizard at Endor’ because his church was allegedly “synonymous with Endor where people looked for temporary solutions to eternal problems.”
“Why did I call Joshua the Wizard at Endor?
“I must find a pattern in the scripture that corroborates what I am going to say because if I just come and say that Joshua is not a true man of God and all of that, it doesn’t follow any pattern in the scripture and therefore, it has no spiritual significance.
“I must find a pattern that represents what he is. And I found it in I Samuel, in the 28th chapter when Saul went to the witch at Endor.
“That is why I call him the Wizard at Endor, the fake church, the counterfeit church where people go like King Saul out of desperation.
“They are not interested in knowing Jesus and Him crucified, they are not interested in doctrines, they are not interested in all that pertains to life and godliness; they are looking for temporary solutions to eternal problems, immediate gratification; that is why the place is an Endor and he as the superintendent of that place is the Wizard at Endor.”
TB Joshua A False Prophet Who Claimed To Be Another Jesus
Chris Okotie described TB Joshua as a false prophet who equated himself with Jesus Christ by his name, conduct, and spiritual pattern.
“Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus. What is the truth about TB Joshua? Who was he? Was he a product of Christianity? Or a practitioner of shamanism? Was he a servant of the Lord Jesus? Or some itinerant religious quack? Was he a true prophet, who was misunderstood? Or a hypocrite masquerading under the habiliment of the Faith?”
“He is a magician, a sorcerer, and calls himself a prophet. Notice he doesn’t call himself an apostle, he doesn’t call himself a teacher, he doesn’t call himself a pastor because if he calls himself by any other name outside of prophet, he does not fulfill the pattern. So, he must stick with that appellation. He must call himself prophet so, so and so… So, he is a magician who claims to be a prophet but he is a false prophet,” Okotie said.
“Joshua claimed he is the one that the Lord has appointed in this generation to bring reconciliation between God and man. And he is not the first to propose such a ludicrous concept. Because even Jesu Oyingbo did the same thing, he calls himself Emmanuel. And we have the same thing with the entity in Calabar who used to call himself I Am.
“So Joshua believes he is aloof from Jesus, that’s why he took the name Joshua because that’s the name that Jesus bore when he was right here on earth. The full name is Jehoshua, which means Jehovah is salvation. The name Joshua and the name Jesus are exactly the same.”
Reading John 8:32: “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”, Mr Okotie said the late preacher took that name (Joshua) because he believed he was another messiah.
“He believes that God sent him to our world to bring reconciliation between God and mankind, exactly the same way the Lord Jesus was sent, and that is why he took that name Joshua,” he said.
Chris Okotie Warn ‘Fake Prophets’
In a follow-up statement titled “Judgement Coming Against Nigeria’s Enemies”, Okotie warned those he referred to as “fake prophets” against God’s vengeance.
It partly reads, “I have also promulgated the decree of Almighty God in His final warning to religious charlatans, false prophets, false prophetesses, and self-styled ministers of the gospel.
“The day of the vengeance of our God has fully come to Nigeria. We are about to witness the greatest divine judgment upon those who have become enemies of the Church and our nation.”
