Politics / Nigeria's Image Changing In The Western World by TheLight2: 2:00am On Jan 06, 2012
hey my people,
check out this news:


Church in Nigeria donates to the U.S.
KENNEWICK, Wash.—We often hear about local charity groups sending donations to less fortunate communities around the world, but for one local group the roles are reversed.

The Family Research Center for Children of Special Needs in Kennewick received a $3,000 donation form the Synagogue Church of all Nations in Nigeria. The money will benefit those in need in the Tri-Cities.

"The name itself is pretty self-explanatory it's called Synagogue Church of all Nations so he doesn't just believe to give to his own nation but to all around the world and that even includes the United States of America," says Mariana Parkhotyuk, Good News Church.

Nigerian Church Donates to Local Family Center

By Collin Sullivan. Published Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

The Family Resource Center

The Family Resources Center received $3,000 from a Nigerian church recently to help people in need in the Tri-Cities.

The church, run by Pastor TB Joshua, was visited by the Good News Church in Pasco last year.

The Good News Church recently received more than $20,000 from the Nigerian church to disperse to organizations throughout the Northwest to help people in need.

The Family Resource Center used $2,000 of the donation to buy home supplies for families that cannot afford items like soap, sponges and other necessities.

Bags filled with those essentials were given to families on Wednesday at the resource center.

Religion / Nff Consults Spiritualists To Cleanse Nigerian Football by TheLight2: 12:34am On Nov 09, 2011
The leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) may have resolved to ask God to intervene in the downward slide of affairs of the game employing the services of some clergymen who have a contract to start praying for the restoration of the game in the country.
Reports asserted that the Aminu Maigari-led Executive Committee has in the last few days met with several men of God at the NFF secretariat in Abuja, with the sole aim of finding a lasting spiritual way out of the quagmire of crises and strings of losses recorded by Nigerian teams in international football.
According to our source, “these men of God have been brought to come and pray and sanctify the Glass House. All enemies of the board were binded with prayers. They have brought both local and international clergymen. One of them is Rev. Edward Ediakorsa, who attended the NFF emergency meeting where the decision to sack Siasia was taken. He came from the United States of America. Two others who are based in Nigeria had also visited. The pastors have been holding series of meeting with the Acting General Secretary of the NFF, Musa Amadu in his office.
One of the home-based cleric, who is always a part of the Super Eagles team to major international tournaments attributed the failure of the immediate past coach of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia, to his negative disposition to spiritual instructions. Ediakorsa was quoted to have stated that before the 8th October, 2011 match against Guinea, which cost the Super Eagles a qualifying ticket to the Nations Cup, he had sent a text message to Siasia on what to do, but the coach snubbed the advice.”
The NFF, it was gathered, was not ruling out the influence of evil forces in the litany of woes that has bedeviled Nigerian football.
When contacted on the latest initiative taken by the NFF Secretary General of the Federation, Musa Amadu, was surprised that “consulting God was being made an issue. In anything you do you must pray for God’s guidance” he was quoted to have volunteered.
Nigeria is a nation where spirituality is employed in the management of the game. Recently, when the nation lost qualifying for the 2012 African Nations Cup by playing2-2 home draw in Abuja to Guinea, Lagos-based prophet T. B. Joshua was blamed for prophesying the result of the game earlier. There were news reports that the same NFF then, brought to camp another spiritualist to counter the prediction of T. b. Joshua. The situation is not too different in the clubsides where a whole lot of money is weekly set aside for spiritual consultation called ‘tactical’.
nation’s soccer ruling body has been under intense pressure following failure of the different categories of the national team to qualify for major competitions, the height of which was the inability of the Super Eagles to qualify for the 2012 African Cup of Nations and Super Falcons’ exit from the women’s soccer event of next year’s Olympic Games.

i find it difficult to believe how so many people can just rule off tb joshua as being a false prophet just like that - before you do so, you are supposed to take time and go through many of the prophecies - aside from predicting outcomes of football matches (accurately for that matter) tb joshua has predicted many other events - just go on youtube and type tb joshua prophecy and take time to go through
please while you are considering that this man is fake, you should also be considering whether he is genuine
Sports / Re: T.b Joshua Predicts That nigeria Will Loose nigeria v Guinea Match If......... by TheLight2: 11:03am On Oct 05, 2011
fellow nigerians, it is very easy to open mouth and begin to criticise - it is actually the easiest thing in the world to do that - but please take time to watch these videos of previous prophecies that tb joshua has given regarding football matches and how they have come to pass.
if this was just a one off prediction, i would probably view it with the same cynicism as you all are doing, but this has happened more than once
besides that, you are saying that prophecy should be direct and straight - tell that to God not tb joshua, tb joshua is only saying what has been revealed to him


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOkiZqcJ6uE

check this video out - it is very clear, tb joshua said nigeria would win by one goal against mozambique and the goal would be a header - are you saying that is ambiguous too?


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPrOsQfgDb8

or this one, he said each team would have one goal


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZ_YA8bET0E

or this one, regarding the prophecy about the nigeria kenya match, do you think a man like john fashanu would have the guts/ stupidity to lie about this in front of a huge congregation and a live audience


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhM0O7MKzxQ


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xRd_TZMU74

or what about this, where tb joshua spoke about the final match of the world cup last year


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V84Pm1VSUc

this (above) is the most recent one and the prophecy is very clear

What do you all have to say about all this?
Religion / How I Became A World Champion by TheLight2: 7:43pm On Mar 11, 2010
[center]…God's strength manifested in my weakness.[/center]

On the heels of his recent triumph over Fuji champion, Zulifkar Joy Ali, King Davidson Emenogu has come out to speak on the factors that secured victory for him on the day. In what was obviously a big surprise to many, he came out to paint the picture of how he had been transformed from grass to grace.
He attributed the transformation to the power of God which he said he encountered at a popular church in Lagos, Nigeria. Founded by the highly criticised Prophet TB Joshua, The Synagogue Church Of All nations is located in Ikotun-Egbe, a Suburb of Lagos, Nigeria.

His story defies the natural beliefs and norms of the boxing world. He comes out to paint the picture of a man who is supported by a supernatural power which would ultimately guarantee his eventual success in the world of boxing. Or how else would one explain the fact that a professional boxer trained only for two weeks in preparation for a career determining fight? Perhaps like they say, the only way to understand how, why and when all these happened is to hear from the proverbial horse’s mouth. Hear him:

“My name is King Davidson Emenogu. I am a professional boxer based in Australia”.
“I had a problem of setback in my boxing career. Each time a competition is around the corner, I will sustain an injury. People wrote me off, saying I could not fulfil my enormous potentials as a professional boxer”.

“Since I started attending The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, I have been undefeated”.
“My manager called me when I was on holiday in Nigeria to inform me that I had a very important fight coming up in three week’s time. This fight, if I won, would take me to the fourth position on the ranking log for contention for the number one championship spot”.

“When I met Prophet TB Joshua in his office, he prayed for me and assured me that I would win if I could hold on to the word of God and his promises in my life. Apart from his spiritual support and advice, he also supported me financially with the sum of two thousand dollars ($2,000)”.

“On arrival in Australia, I resumed training immediately on Monday in order to make up for the lost time and practice. When I met with my trainer, he was down and told me point blank that he was scared because I had a very short time to practise for a very important match of this magnitude. Normally, we require between 2 -4 months practice for a match of this kind”.

“But I told him that ‘I am loaded’. I was very sure that at the end of the day I would come out victorious to give a testimony that would glorify the name of God. I ensured that I put in the best of my abilities into the two weeks’ training. When in the ring for my training, I would instruct one of my friends who is also a boxer to spray the anointed water on my body and on my knuckles. My trainer would ask, “King what are you doing?” I would just say to him, “You don’t know what I know”.

“I also made sure that I contacted Prophet TB Joshua as the fight drew near. Each time that I called him he would say: “Don’t worry just do your own part in preparation and training, God will do his own part on the day and ensure victory for you”.

Continuing he said: “On the day of the fight, I called Prophet TB Joshua and he told me to call him back when it was about 30 minutes to the fight. When it was time I called him back and said “Sir, it is time, pray for me” and he said, No, you pray I will say Amen”.

“I then prayed by saying: Lord, let your strength manifest in my weakness. Fill me with your strength. At the end of the day let your name be glorified”. Then Prophet TB Joshua said “Amen”.

“Just before the fight started my boxer friend sprayed the anointed water into my mouth, body and in the air in the ring. When the first round started, I was surprised by the kind of strength I had. As the fight progressed I continued to increase in strength and at the end of the 12th round, I was declared the winner of the fight. Now I am 4th on the standings for contention for the position of the number one”.

“I have come back to give thanks because when God does something good for you, you should come back to His house to thank Him and give all the glory to Him”.
He concluded saying: “Remember, better is not good enough the best is yet to come”!

Sports / Nigerian Boxer dedicates victory to TB Joshua by TheLight2: 5:13pm On Mar 02, 2010
…Dedicates Belt To TB Joshua

Nigeria’s King Davidson Emenogu on Saturday won an unanimous decision against current Fuji champion Zulfikar Joy Ali when both southpaws contested for the Pan Asia Boxing Association title (PABA) in a 12-round three minutes challenge, making him (Emenogu) the new PABA champion.
A
ccording to report reaching SportsDay, the bout stated with Emenogu charging at Zulfikar from the word go, giving the Fijian no opportunity to throw his hard punches which he is known for.

The bout went through the rounds with Emenogu taking eight out of the twelve with Zulfikar taking four after sustaining a deep cut to his right eyelid through a powerful one two combination from the powerful Nigerian in round three.
Speaking with SportsDay after the fight, the 2003 All-Africa Games gold medalists says "I could tell right away that I was too strong for him, I could see that he didn't like getting hit to the body and that my uppercuts were hurting him.
"
Though Zulfikar is strong, but I believe I gave him some doze of my African might," he added.
Commenting on his next title fight billed for March 22 against Yuki Nonic for the Oriental Pacific Boxing Federation title, the new PABA champion says fighting Ali was a good timing as the fight has aided his preparations for Yuki maintaining that Yuki will also be getting some doze of his African might.

Meanwhile, the 2006 Commonwealth bronze medalist says with the spiritual blessings he got from Pastor TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), and his commitment, he is sure to rule the boxing world.
Emenogu is the IBF, Pan Pacific Youth light middleweight, Australian light middleweight and WBO Africa light middleweight and the new Pan Asia Boxing Federation titles holder and is gunning for the fight comes the 22nd of March against Yuki Nonic for the OPBF title.

Religion / Bull's Eye Prophecy by TheLight2: 7:50pm On Feb 22, 2010
[center]WHEN PROPHECY HITS BULL’S EYE[/center]

“There must be a Prophet in our midst; God cannot leave us all in the dark concerning things that will happen in the future” these were the words of Prophet TB Joshua during the Sunday live service on 21st February 2010 at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations.

Coming on the heels of the prophetic statements which were related to the recent coup d'état in Niger and the Joseph Stack crash incident which took place in the Echelon office complex in Austin, Texas, United States, a video clip was shown to the large congregation, detailing the exact words of the prophet and how they related to the prophecy.

These were the exact words of Prophet TB Joshua in the weeks leading to the Niger coup:

3rd January: “There is one of the African countries we should help in prayer so that they will not send their democracy backward again. Because I am seeing a kind of coup attempt on the leader of one of the African countries. This is one of the French speaking countries.”

17th January: Pray against something against democracy (coup) of one of the African countries. Pray.

31st January: Pray against a coup in one of the African countries. This is one of the French speaking countries.

In the same vein, Prophet TB Joshua, with respect to the Joseph Stack crash incident repeatedly said:
“America should be security conscious particularly in a gathering of people and should take care of their air space”. Referring to President Obama as "Big Brother", Prophet TB Joshua gave a call to pray for the US President and warned the USA to take more cognizance of internal security 'til March.
True to his words, on Thursday 18th February 2010, Soldiers stormed the Presidential Palace, captured the President and Cabinet Ministers and seized power in a violent coup in the French speaking republic of Niger.

On the same day, a US citizen, Joseph Stack committed suicide by deliberately crashing his plane into an IRS office building in Austin, Texas, USA in a violent protest against the US Government tax and legal systems. In his suicide note, posted on the Internet, Stack ranted against the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and against The US Government, referring to The US Government as “Big Brother”.

“I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at "big brother" while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue; I have just had enough…Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let’s try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.”

This prophecy has once again confirmed Prophet TB Joshua as a force to reckon with in the ministry of prophecy. The accuracy of these prophecies could be likened to HITTING THE BULL’S EYE.

Prophet TB Joshua concluded saying: “Prophecy and prophets did not die out with the Old Testament”.

EROMOSELE EBHOMELE

A Zimbabwean nurse residing in the United Kingdom, Bester Tsitsi Mazombe, has narrated how she and other disciples of Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Ikotun, Lagos distributed relief materials to victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti.

In an interview with P.M.NEWS, Mazombe disclosed that she was a member of the Emmanuel TV (the television outfit of Synagogue Church) crew dispatched to Haiti with a plane load of food and medical supplies to give succour to the victims.

“When we got to Haiti, the destruction was really devastating. To understand how the people of Haiti have been affected by the earthquake is like imagining your own capital or Lagos coming down.

“If Lagos comes down, it is sure going to affect the rest of the nation. That is what has happened in Haiti. Port-Au-Prince, their capital, has come down. You remember that in most capitals of the world, there are different companies and banks. So, with those institutions coming down, it means the economy, education and health care system will suffer,” she narrated, adding that some people were not at home when the quake occurred.

One interesting thing Mazombe found out in the country was that the people still shared the cultures of their roots and were proud to tell foreigners that they were from Africa.

“The people of the country were taken from Nigeria, Congo, Benin and Ghana to Haiti. I was really surprised to see that for the people who came from Nigeria, actually came with their Igbo culture, their traditional form of worship. There are gods that they still worship today that actually bear Igbo names.

“Whenever they see a black person, they always express oneness. I was the only African on the team and as they saw me, they identified with me so much. They even carry the same love for God as it is done in Nigeria.

“When I arrived in Lagos, I saw that the little yellow commuter buses had verses of the scriptures written on them. When you go to Haiti, it is the same picture. The way Lagos is built is the same way Haiti is built.

“It is so amazing that these people, though from this country, were separated by time and circumstances, are still doing what is done in Lagos,” she narrated.

On the role played by the team in Haiti, she said they set up a clinic named Emmanuel Clinic “and this clinic has assisted a lot of men, women and children with diseases like diarrhoea, caused by having to drink contaminated water.

“A lot of the people in the country are unemployed, so, they cannot afford health care. It was when we opened the clinic that we realised that people have had no health care for months and years. People came with tumours with flies. It was a challenge working with them but as we did, we could see tears of gratitude and see that the people need us.”

She narrated an incident which touched her and shaped her new outlook on life.

“On the day of the earthquake, there was a little boy who was about two years old in a house. Everybody ran away and forgot him because of fear. Few seconds after the quake, bricks had fallen on the boy’s pelvis and hip area. Prior to the earthquake, the boy was following his mother everywhere, but now as we speak, we have referred the little boy to the hospital.

“It really touched me to see that people’s lives have been lost as a result of the earthquake. They feel traumatised and think that another tragedy is going to happen,” she said.

She also described the predicament of the country’s citizens as the direct result of man’s insensitivity to man.

To her, the country needs assistance from Nigeria and other African countries because the people there are direct descendants of the continent. She called for investment in education and health for the country to catch up with development.

On what has changed about her since she visited Haiti. She said a lot of people would want to be seen as giving help to the hopeless. “It is something we say with our lips, but when the opportunity arises to be able to give this hope, it becomes challenging.

“Personally, I have not been to a disaster zone and I had a challenge going there, but with the gratitude of the people, I realised that you must not only help people with things you are comfortable with. I have never been in a situation where I would have to deliver a baby outside where it was hot and because of the blood and water, flies come around.

“But being there to help the woman deliver safely and support them gave me joy. Now, I have learnt that when I help someone I should be sure that the person is going to be happy the rest of his life,” she explained.

She also revealed that the relief team had secured a space to build an orphanage in Haiti to assist children.

The minute I read the story on the internet my mind went to the words of Prophet TB Joshua when he revealed a prophetic warning for the USA, saying that America should be security conscious particularly in a gathering of people and should take care of their air space. Referring to President Obama as “Big Brother”, Prophet TB Joshua gave a call to pray for the US President and warned the USA to take more cognizance of internal security ’til March. Recall the use of BIG BROTHER by Joseph Stack The bomber, and the you will accept that God is still saying something to man today through his prophets.

Religion / I Am An Asset To The World; Use Me – Tb Joshua by TheLight2: 3:52pm On Feb 17, 2010
“I am an asset to the world, use me.” These were the words of Prophet TB Joshua during the Sunday live Service 14th February 2010, while the world celebrated Valentine’s Day; showering gifts and love on their loved ones. In what will turn out to be a big hit for the media in Nigeria, TB Joshua identified with the people of Haiti, who recently suffered a devastating magnitude 7.0 earthquake; leaving the children and survivors to suffer the pains of such a disaster.

He recalled how in the past few weeks he had repeatedly clamoured for prayers for a former president of a great nation of the world. These were the exact words that he said during the prophecy. “I can see a former president of a great nation being rushed to the hospital. He should not do any operation”. I said it in November 2009, and I repeated it again in January 2010 and last Sunday (7th January 2010) because I saw that it was coming nearer.

True to his words, on Thursday 11th February 2010, the shocking news of the hospitalisation of former President of the USA, Bill Clinton hit the world with a rude shock. Several news networks reported that: “Doctors inserted two stents resembling tiny mesh scaffolds to clear the blockage after he suffered several days of "discomfort" in his chest following an aid mission to Haiti.”

He stressed the role that men of God are supposed to play in the society, saying that he was sent by God to act as a medium of communication for humanity.
“There are qualities to be looked out for. It is very simple to identify a true man of God, there are yardsticks to be employed, and some of them are:
1. A man of God never looks the other way when his brother is in trouble
2. A man of God loves his neighbour and prays for those who persecute him
3. A man of God does not condemn
4. More to others, less to themselves; this is a way of life for him
5. The wound of others is theirs; they feel what others feel.

Demonstrating the true virtue of love, TB Joshua announced to the congregation that a member of the Emmanuel TV Haiti Relief Team was in the church auditorium to give a firsthand report of what the team was able to achieve at Haiti.

Mrs. Bester Mazombe a Zimbabwean residing in the United Kingdom, who is a professional nurse decided to accompany the Emmanuel TV Haiti Relief Team, because in her words: “I was touched by the appeal of Prophet TB Joshua for everybody to join in this cause to be our brother’s keeper”.

Continuing, she said: “Clinique Emmanuel has been a blessing for everyone in the surrounding areas. The people of Haiti are also watching and following Emmanuel TV from the internet – that was why they were very happy when they met the Emmanuel TV Team on the way. They realised that Prophet TB Joshua wants to share their pain with them.

As a Christian, we must feel what others feel for we begin to succeed with our lives when the hurt and trouble of others begin to matter to us. The Haitians rejoiced knowing that the Emmanuel TV Team had come all the way from Nigeria, The UK, USA and other parts of the world.”

Religion / Confessions Of Dare-devil Robbers: How God used TB Joshua to deliver us. by TheLight2: 8:14pm On Feb 13, 2010
They are born by different parents. They are from different towns. They grew up in different places. But they have a common denomination. They were once armed robbers. Their trade ranges from robbing passengers of their mobile phones in moving buses to stealing goats, and to bloody, murderous highway hold ups. Their stories are lessons of how bad companies transform juveniles into daring sons of Barabbas’. Sons of the gun. Their confessions were not given under duress, neither in a police cell. It came as a result of their life-changing encounter with General Overseer of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua. The stranger-than-fiction true confessions by these three young men, who have repented from their evil way, further demonstrate the redeeming power of God.

They are now residents of The Synagogue where Prophet Joshua ministers daily to their physical, financial, mental and spiritual needs, trying to remould and mend their bent and jaded lives. Indeed, there are several other confessed armed robbers in the church who are being ministered to, reformed and returned to normal life by the renowned prophet.
The robbers’ rehabilitation programme is an outreach of an NGO recently formed by Joshua to bring career criminals to the saving knowledge of God. The repented trio left The Spectator mouth agape as they recounted their blood-curdling exploits in the crime world, eliciting tears, shock and sorrow, then remorse.
Excerpts:

Isaiah is a 33-year-old son of a retired soldier. He hails from Adamawa State, but grew up in Jos, Plateau State, where he first mixed up with bad company. His journey into crime blossomed in Delta State where he became a robbery kingpin.

What were you doing before you got involved in armed robbery?
I was a secondary school student then as far back as 2000. It all started from keeping bad friends; we would go out, drink alcohol and smoke Indian hemp. I didn’t care. We stole money, and we spent it lavishly. We started like a small cult. We used to meet in one small cave. After my secondary school, I organized my own goal.

Tell me about your first operation, how did you organize it?
We have the presido, who was the leader of the gang. I double-crossed him because I was older than him and even stronger than him. Then, I carved out my own gang, my own boys from within that group. Out of the 17 boys in the original gang, 15 followed me because I assured them that in any operation we successfully carry out, the loot would be shared equally among us. The presido, on the other hand, cheated them.

You still have not told me about your first operation, how you organised it, where and how you executed it.
Well, I can’t the exact date but I can say that the day was terrible and bloody. It was a highway robbery in Jos. Anyone that God delivered into my hand…

Did you say anyone God delivers to you?
Oh yes, because we normally prayed before taking to the road.

You normally prayed? In whose name?
In the name of God.

Which God?
I don’t know. But we usually prayed before we go out, and if mother luck shines on us and business booms, sometimes, we could earn over one or two million in one outing. I had no fear for the police at all.

Why were you not afraid of the police?
Because my weapons were better than the police’s.

Did you also have juju?
That is a must. Every strong armed robber must have something to protect him. Before I got that power, I slept in a grave for seven good days.

So, how did you get that power?
They told me if I sleep for seven days, I should not shout or be afraid if I see anything. That I should not run because things will come.

What were the things that came to you at the cemetery?
Sometime, things did come in the form of animals to frighten me.

So, once you pass through that stage, nothing frightened you again?
Nothing. Not even guns. And if police were on the way, my instinct would tell me. If the sign was ominous, I informed my boys to lie low and refrain from any operation. The day that my boys were killed, I warned them beforehand but they insisted on going because they were broke. That day, we exchanged shots with the police.

When was this?
That was in 2003. That day was bloody.

How many of your boys were killed in the exchange?
Three of them.

How did you survive it?
Not one bullet hit me because of the charms I had on me.

Apart from Indian hemp, were you also taking cocaine, crack and other hard drugs?
Every hard man must always take those stuffs. If you don’t take those things, you will have some modicum of human feelings in you and it would hamper your performance. But if you take those drugs, you will see human being as mere flies.

At that point you can even kill?
You finish anything that comes your way.

Even your mother?
Of course. If I don’t kill her, someone will kill her, because she will go and ‘bust my runs’. In a car, anybody you first see that knows you or you know that person, it’s the person you kill first, because it is that person that will go and spread the news about you if you spare him or her.

Did you then give up armed robbery?
I never gave up armed robbery. After my boys were killed, I relocated to my town and I organized another group again. I moved to Delta State in 2005 with 13 boys. I lived in Effurun.

Why did you choose Effurun and not Warri?
Because that place is a very good hideout. If you commit any crime, and you run to mechanic village and hide, nobody would wise up to you. Ah, I terrorized that place o, and nobody knew it was me. They caught some innocent boys instead.

So, what was your turning point?
I met a friend that never knew I was an armed robber. All the time, I took him to clubs, he would be asking me: “you are not free with people.” And I would tell him: “I am not used to people; I don’t like people.” In fact, I didn’t use to go out in the daytime. I only went out at night, and before I go out, my boys must carry a surveillance of the area for me; because I was suspicious of everybody, every time, even my boys. I didn’t trust them. But this friend of mine, when we were in his house, we watched Emmanuel TV (the satellite TV of The Synagogue,Church Of All Naitons). I asked him to switch off the TV. He insisted that he liked the programme because he always saw miracles happen there everyday.

Was he an armed robber too?
No, he wasn’t and he didn’t know I was an armed robber. The TV caught my attention. Sometimes we saw some miracles that shocked us. Then, it became a habit for me to come to his place to watch the TV. One day, I said: “I have never been to Lagos, how can I meet this man?” It all seemed like a joke. He told me he knew Lagos. He brought me to Lagos and dropped me at Isheri, Idimu. I told him to go back from there, that I can find my way.

Being your first time in Lagos, how did you find your way?
When I arrived in Lagos, I asked for Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. One Yoruba guy gave me directions. I came to the church that morning but they did not allow me to enter.

Why?
Because I wanted to follow the other gate, I thought it was like the normal church in Warri where you can enter at will. I was asked to join the queue. Discouraged by the long queue, I went out to smoke cigarettes and to drink water. I came back and joined the queue and entered the church. They took us to sit in the visitors’ part of the church. As the man of God was preaching, he said, “There is an armed robber there” he pointed at where I was. I refused to stand up. Then, he said, “if you like come out, if you like don’t come out, anything that follows you are the one that will cry”. After the first service closed, I went to drink Chelsea dry gin, and smoked some cigarettes. I went home but I could not sleep. I could not do anything.

Which house?
I lodged at Bakem Hotel. I couldn’t sleep; it was as if I was going insane. I suffered that through Monday but on Tuesday I ran back to the church and explained to one of the sisters. She asked me to come back on Thursday. On Thursday, when I came back, I was given one small paper, on it was written the instruction: Please, come back on Sunday by 6am. I came by 9am. When I showed the small paper, they took me inside and gave me a seat. Luckily, that day, the man of God was preaching. When he called armed robbers, my seat suddenly became as hot as a burning charcoal. It was as if it was on fire. I sweated profusely. I stood up, but a voice told me to sit down. But the seat was becoming too hot for me. Then, I rose and walked towards the man of God. I couldn’t see him. I only saw light, but I heard his voice talking to me. Then, I didn’t hear anything again until I saw myself on the ground when my eyes opened and I beheld the crowd. He asked me to stand. Today, he gave me N200,000 and four bags of rice and a brand new Bible. Since I was born, nobody has given me a Bible as a gift. The gift of the Bible is enough for me.

When was your last operation in Warri?
Early this month (November, 2009). It was a highway robbery. We mounted a blockade on the road and we snatched a car, in the process we collected money, mobile phones and other valuables.

Did you kill in that last operation?
I didn’t kill anybody.

In your entire career as an armed robber, how many people did you kill?
Many.
If you appear before God and God asks you how did you feel when you were killing…
(cuts in) the important thing is that I have received my healing. Sometimes, I just sit, and cry over my past sins and pray that God have mercy on me.

This N200,000 that the man of God has given, what are you going to do with it?
God will direct me, but I have a vocational skill; I am a cobbler.

You are used to getting millions, now somebody is giving you N200,000. Are you sure that will take you off the crime that has made you a ‘millionaire’?
No temptation will draw me back to crime.

How prepared are you now in your current state to tackle the temptation that will come?
God will handle that.

When are you leaving the Synagogue?
I don’t want to leave Synagogue. Synagogue gave me life again. I don’t even think of leaving.

You went on an international channel to tell the whole world that you were an armed robber, are you not afraid of being arrested?
No.

What if the police come to arrest you?
I am prepared to face the consequence of my sins.


Prince from Kaduna State is one of the nine children of an ECWA pastor. The 28-year-old stopped his education in JSS 2 in 1998, because of the lure of bad life. His family was none the wiser. His work in a bakery was his alibi for working late and sleeping outside. The boy with a musical talent transformed into a daring robber.

How did you get involved?
I got involved through a friend. We started by stealing people’s goats and fowls. Then, we entered into their houses and steal their things, jewelleries, even their money and other things that we can sell to get money. People will be seeing me spending money and they thought it was the earning from my bakery job.

Why, eventually, did you have to leave school?
I dropped out of school because of the bad behaviours. There was a friend that we went and killed a goat. I was reported to the school authority. The principal flogged me and then told me he would call an emergency assembly the next day. And I was to bring my friend to confess our heinous crimes, right from that day, I stopped going to school. In spite of my bad ways of life, God still blessed me with the talent of songs. I mean gospel songs. I went to my father who was a minister of God and told him of my ambition to record gospel songs in a studio. He supported me with N30,000 to start the recording, but two weeks later he died.

When you were being wayward, what was the reaction of your elder ones?
All of them were angry, even up till date, they are still angry, particularly because I dropped out of school. I was the black sheep of the family, so they all stayed away form me. After my father died, the first thing on my mind was to go into gospel music. Then I started going to church and I started making my talent known. I contacted some big men in my church to help me, nobody listened to me. In fact, one specifically told me he was not a fool for any gold digger. That was it! That was what provoked me. The evil spirit came into me at that moment.

Didn’t your pastor counsel you?
The first pastor I appealed to tell me the church couldn’t sponsor my album. But instead they could help me with posers after my production, and then I should go ahead with the launching. Where would I get the money for the launch? That was what annoyed me. I decidedly took to bad life in Jos. That period, the Jos riot was going on in 2001. I used that very opportunity to get to Jos. Devil connected with a friend that was already a daredevil armed robber, an Ibo boy, called Uchenna. He was killed at Apata. After his death, I took the 10 guns he had and I disappeared. Before his death, he had linked me with some native doctors who gave me strong juju. After his death, I organized my gang in Jos. And we went on a robbery spree all over the North. In the first year of operation, five of my gang members were killed; I still had five other boys. One of the boys father had a station wagon. We went to rob him. That was one thing I will never forget in my life. I used knife to mutilate his body all over and we took his car key, drove his car to Apo Village in Abuja, where we changed every part of it and we started using it.
However, 24 of my gang members were killed in one single night. What saved me was that I had a native doctor in Zaria, who gave me charms to make me disappear in case of danger. He told me I should not allow any other person but myself to drive the car, and I should not allow any woman in the car. Keeping to that instruction, nothing bad could befall me, he assured me. But one night, we were travelling, then, suddenly, there were torchlight around us. Before we knew it, the police had opened fire. I disappeared and appeared in an unknown forest where I trekked from midnight till 3pm the following day. I heard a voice that warned me that if I go into crime again, I would die. When I got into town, I called one of my father’s friends, and confessed to him. He told me God had solution to my problem.
When I met him, he showed me a programme on Emmanuel TV and I saw armed robbers that were delivered. He asked me to find transportation fare I went and sold some of my things to raise the money for the fare. When I came, he told me they have shifted the date for counselling from October to November 27. He told me it is through healing service that I can see the man of God. I decided that I will not wait till that date but I will go and fellowship there. He was concerned that I could become a destitute in Lagos since I don’t have anybody there. Then, I remember a friend of mine from my school days who joined the army and is now in Ikeja. I called and informed him. I arrived on Saturday and located the church on Sunday. When I sat down listening to the man of God preaching, I heard him say that “if you know that you are an armed robber…” I was covered with sweat. The power of God led me out and the man of God delivered me.

How much was the first big money you made?
Any operation that we went for, we got a minimum, per head, of over one million naira. Sometimes I spent up to nine months enjoying the loot, living the bad life.

Justin Oliseh, a juvenile 18-year-old is a football prodigy, who in 2003/4 played in the junior team of Gabros. The Anambra indigene had been plagued from childhood by an uncanny kleptic instinct, which drove him to steal from his classmates and teachers. But in 2004, he abandoned his studies while in JSS 2 and became fully engaged in robbery.

How were you initiated into armed robbery?
This armed robbery of a thing is like a generational curse in my family. My father was killed in an armed robbery operation. My father begat five children – four boys and one girl, but I am the only one that is an armed robber.

How do you mean when you say it is a generational curse?
My uncle was also killed in an armed robbery operation.

Why do you decide to follow in their (your father and uncle’s)footsteps?
The spirit that was in them entered inside me.

How do you mean? You that had been stealing while they were still alive?
They were not alive then. I witnessed their death.

How were they killed?
My father was executed publicly in Anambra State and my mother took me to witness his execution.
Why did she do that?
Because when my father was alive, I was his favourite son, he took me everywhere he went. In Iboland, there is a saying that, ‘obeka nnayan’ meaning, like father like son.

Was your mother not ashamed at going to the public execution?
I can’t remember. I was too young then.

The moment he was shot what happened to you?
The moment he was shot, my spirit hardened. I felt something come over me. I suddenly had the strength to do things I was afraid of doing before. From that moment, I can look my mother in the face.

What was the first gang you joined like?
We were five in number. But I refused to carry gun and refused to shed blood. If I carry gun, it will be empty of bullets.

What was your first operation like and where?
It was in Anambra state, a house operation.

When did you stop robbery?
This month of November (2009).

When was your last robbery?
Last month (October) here in Lagos. My friend and I snatched mobile phones from people in the bus. My friend brought out a penknife and we collected all the passengers’ mobile phones.

How many mobile phones did you collect?
The ones that were with me before I sold them were 12.

How did you make the decision to come to this church?
In my house, I used to watch Emmanuel TV and I used to see many robbers that were delivered and I asked myself how could I be delivered? One of my friends advised me to go to the church. The first day I heard the man of God preach, he said, “There is a robber in this church.” I didn’t know whether he was talking to me or not. The second Sunday I came, he again said armed robbers
should step forward and give their life to God. I took the steps and I was delivered. I have been here for three weeks now.

Throughout the period that you operated, why did you refuse to kill?
I don’t want to shed any innocent blood.

Are you not afraid that the police will come after you?
I am not afraid. Even if police should arrest me now, I have given my life to Christ.

The man of God gave you N150,000, four bags of rice and a Bible, what are you going to do with that?
I will go back to school and study mechanical engineering.

Religion / Tb Joshua Speaks As Emmanuel Tv’s Cargo Plane Lands In Quake Ravaged Haiti. by TheLight2: 7:57pm On Feb 04, 2010
In the wake of the recent devastating earthquake which descended on the nation of Haiti, there has been outcry from the world for people and nations to reach out to the affected areas of the country with relief materials which could help alleviate the sufferings of the people of Haiti. A large number of organisations, governments and individuals alike have been quick to respond to this call by sending in their donations in cash to help the people of the nation of Haiti.

The humanitarian crisis that the people and nation of Haiti have to come to terms with has become clearer to the world with the commentaries of the media reporters on ground, who have reported that the efforts of more contributors are required; not only in cash but much more in their physical presence, so they can assist and support the efforts of the powerful nations of the world.

Lending a voice to this group of people is Prophet TB Joshua, the General Overseer and founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos Nigeria, and the founder of Emmanuel TV. Having sent a cargo plane with relief materials to the nation and people of Haiti, in a bid to assuage the distress of the people and nation of Haiti, Prophet TB Joshua has now come out to speak to the world to trail the same path.

Quoting from the Holy bible, in the book of Matthew 25 vs. 45, he explained that it was imperative that everybody sends in their own support to the people of Haiti at this time e of trial in the lives. He underlined the impact of the earthquake on the lives of the children of Haiti, saying they were the future of the nation of Haiti. He stressed the role of love in the life of a true Christian, by reading from the book of 1st Corinthians 13 vs. 13.
Sequel to his first statement, when he announced to the church congregation that the cargo plane that delivered the relief materials had successfully landed in Haiti. He also stated that the team of Emmanuel TV partners had started efforts to build a community clinic, which he noted had already taken delivery of the first baby, named Emmanuella at the Clinique Emmanuel.

Hear him: “I am TB Joshua, on behalf of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations family. I pray to God to richly bless you, in Jesus name, Amen. Thank you for being part of our broadcast today. You would be blessed as you receive the words of God. May the lord bless you abundantly as you help the Haiti people, In Jesus name. Thank you. As regards what is happening in Haiti, we cannot pretend not to see, we are one another’s strength.”

“We need to witness to a troubled world, remember Christ says, all our doings without love are nothing. A true Christian is known by his love. I will like to take you to the book of 1st Corinthians 13 vs. 13: And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. Ultimately, we are called to respond to all human needs for that is what love entails. This does not however mean that the demonstration of love for the needy alone is enough to bring us to salvation, but it forms the basis for judging our level of kindness. Our level of faithfulness because looking the other way when our neighbour is in trouble is equal to rejecting Christ himself. The people of Haiti are in need!”
The children of Haiti, some of their parents are trapped as we can see them

“What can you give to them; give it for God’s sake. Love the children of Haiti for God’s sake and you will be loved. Give the people of Haiti for God’s sake and you will receive the mercy and favour of God. They are homeless, like sheep without a shepherd.”
Continuing, he said: “God has no hands but only our hands to reach them. Reach them; let his passion check our compassion. It is praise worthy not only when you give within your power but beyond your power. The people of Haiti need you at this time.”

“What can you do for the people of Haiti, do it for God’s sake. Looking the other way when your neighbour in Haiti is in trouble is tantamount to rejecting Christ himself. Whatever is in your hand now is a solution to the people of Haiti. I will like to take you to the book of Matthew 25 vs. 45: ‘Assuredly I say to you, whatever you do the least of your fellow brother that you do unto me.’ Now as a Christian whatever you do or fail to do to your fellow brother that you do unto God. Whatever you do to the people of Haiti that you do unto God. Help the people of Haiti, help the children of Haiti.”
Let us pray: “Lord Jesus, fill our lives with the fire of your love, help us to grow in love until it flows from our heart to others. You have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing. Grant us a loving heart, a will to give and share, to show we really care. Teach us lord to be ever kind, with saviour first in mind. In Jesus Christ name, amen.

“There are many charity organisations, reach them with your gift. Help the people of Haiti, Help the children of Haiti; they are the future of Haiti.”

He concluded by saying: “Prosperity comes when our aims and focus and desire is to build God’s kingdom, as you make a decision today to give for the gospel God will proper you today, In Jesus name. Send your seed and trust that we will deliver and God will bless you In Jesus name. I wish to stop here but I pray that the words of God will bless you in a special way, we meet again, bye!”

Sports / Re: Give Three Reasons Why Amodu Should Remain Or Be Sacked by TheLight2: 5:40pm On Feb 04, 2010
If Amodu is eventually sacked I will be dissappointed; first in Nigerians and secondly in Nigerians.

One minute please, let us be reasonable for 1 minute, and flow in the same frequency.

If indeed Nigerians want Amodu to be sacked and replaced with a Foreign Coach, the thesare my reasons why I believe he should lead the SE to the world cup in SA:

1. The President of Nigeria has been AWOL for more than 70 days and the people are yet to know for sure where he is and the state of his health; Dont you all think it is about time Nigeria employs a foreign President to steer the country, considering the type of leadership crisis the nation has suffered form its leaders.

2. The Senate and the House of Reps are yet to take any concrete step to resolve the above issue; Dont you all think it is about time Nigeria employs foreign Senators and Reps members who can help resolve this issue, considering the anticedents of the previous legislative members who have fought, thrown chairs, practically 'EATEN' money and improverished the people whose interest they are supposed to be protecting.

3. The infrastructures in the country of Nigeria are NOT working, No reliable Electrical Power, Fuel Scarcity (in one of the biggest exporters of crude oil), No good roads, Little or no security, Kidnapping (which I must say has reduced thanks to the Amnesty program), and many more problems; Dont you all think it is about time Nigeria employs the services of Foreign Police, Security outfits, Power generating companies, Road construction etc to power the country.

If you all agree to these, then Amodu can be sacked. Because the truth is Amodu is even more effective than most of the people who are calling for his head. At least his team is the thrid best in Africa and the 15th best in the World. Can our president, Senators, House of Reps members, PHCN, etc say the same of themselves?

Just do the usual, but ensure you beat the egg as soon as it begins to fry on the pan.

Remember, just fry the eggs and ensure you beat it lightly as soon as it begins to fry.
Sports / Re: Amodu Vs Tb Joshua Over Eagles by TheLight2: 4:36pm On Jan 26, 2010
Well, it is not yet late.

The world cup is still around the corner and we can try the U17 and U20 guys there.

I sincerely beliveve that some of the U20 guys like Osanga King, Obiora Nwankwo and co will comfortably put some of these our Eagles on the benh forever. Not to talk of younger ones like Sani Emmanuel, Ramon Azeez et al.

Well, for TB Joshua, I think the best would be to go and see for yourself.

What else could be better?
Sports / Re: Sat Guru Marahaji And T.b Joshua In Spiritual Battle Over Eagles by TheLight2: 4:46pm On Jan 20, 2010
Well, maybe there is a fight.
But it is obvious that TB Joshua is not fighting with anybody.
I wonder whether this story emanated from a newspaper, how and when did TB Joshua say he was responsible for the qualification of the SE to the world cup?

Is it not AMODU that went to the church to give testimony and thanks to God?

The TB Joshua has not even come out to reply any of these stuffs. I just hope that people will be more intelligent and see more clearly.
Religion / The Many ‘sins’ Of Tb Joshua by TheLight2: 7:49pm On Jan 19, 2010
[center]THE MANY ‘SINS’ OF TB JOSHUA[/center]
When a man is subjected to persistent barrage of attacks instigated by his foes and detractors, the very simple question to be asked is: What is/are his sin(s)?
The world has seen and heard of the stories of individuals who dared to change the world by involving themselves in peculiar acts and activities; those which are rare and hard to comprehend and understand by the customary reasoning of human. These individuals eventually succeeded in their quest, by being persistent and sustaining their unique ideas, proposition and principles.
Think of a world conquering individual and you will sure see traces of the acts of propaganda, name-calling, smear campaign, slanderous campaign, and the likes, thrown at them by their opposition and detractors.

Jesus Christ
Nelson Mandela
Michelangelo
Thomas Alva Edison
Neil Armstrong

The list above, amongst many others which cannot be mentioned, comprises great men who impacted positively on the lives of their generation and generation yet unborn. Yet, they were criticized, chastised, humiliated, imprisoned and jettisoned, all because of their ideas and unique contributions to their communities.
Certain qualities are common about the lives of these people; they remained persistent and courageous, and paid any price to protect their purpose in life. The lesson to be learnt is clear; for a person to be in the centre of his world, he must be willing to accept criticism of the detractors when they come.
One man who has consistently thrived in the midst of his detractors is Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos-Nigeria. This man of God with the gift of accurate prophetic declaration, healing, deliverance and preaching of the Gospel, has stunned the world at large with series of prophetic messages that have turned out to be true and confirmed by the recipients.

The very fact that the popularity of this prophet has soared thanks to much criticism he has received from home and abroad, attests to his many trials. In the past decade, he has been bombarded by claims that he is a false prophet of God. In the midst of these, his continued calm and silence has endeared him to many.

So the question is: What is/are the sin(s) of TB Joshua?
1. The fact that he cannot boast of a mentor?
2. The fact that he performs miracles and deliverance?
3. The fact that he issues prophetic statements that turn out to be true?
4. The fact that he is a humble man?
5. The fact that he cannot boast of the best educational qualification?
6. The fact that he prefers to be involved in charitable causes?
7. The fact that he is friend to the needy, beggars, widows, widowers, leaders, presidents, renowned personalities and indeed, friend to all?
8. The fact that he pastors a congregation of citizens of the world?

Whatever his sin(s), let us all be aware that great men attract great rejection. That is what makes them thick. That is the tonic that strengthens them. Imagine the kind of opposition that Jesus Christ and the likes faced in their time.

Would you have believed them then?
