Nigerian preacher TB Joshua has responded to attacks reportedly uttered by miracle-money Zimbabwean preacher also known as ‘prophet’ Eubert Angel who it is claimed ridiculed Joshua in one of his sessions. Eubert is said to have asked a female congregant why she desired to go to a place ‘where they would only tell you when the next president will die.’
Scores of Christians have openly testified that Angel spoke via a televised program on his Miracle TV the above words which have the impact of bringing TB Joshua’s reputation into question. TB Joshua has a long history of fulfilled predictions which include the death of the late Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika.
“Also, during a partners meeting of Prophet Angel which I attended, he even boasted, ‘T.B. Joshua is the one who always calls me on the phone; I do not phone him.’ Upon request, one of his ushers had to stand up and confirm the assertion. This happened recently, in the second week of November 2012,” wrote another concerned church member.
It is claimed that while prophesying to a certain lady from Zambia, Angel “told her that she was supposed to go somewhere else but because of financial difficulties came to him. The lady replied that she had wanted to go to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria to see Prophet T.B. Joshua. Prophet Angel then asked her why she wanted to go to a place where they would only tell you when the next president will die. He told her that it was in his own church she would hear the reality. I was very shocked to hear this.”
TB Joshua at the weekend responded to these alleged attacks stating that as he can remember they are true:
“Brother Patrick, thank you for your email. Don’t be troubled in your heart. Remember, Jesus said there will be trouble. Indeed, there is reason to be troubled because of what the founder of Miracle TV, Uebert Angel, said about me and my ministry. There is greater reason not to be.
“I believe what you said in your email. It was true Angel (Miracle TV) said this in his service. There were almost 20 emails I received saying the same thing. Brother Patrick, I have nothing to say. I leave my battle for God. He has been fighting for me and He will continue to fight for me – because the battle is of God. In Him, I live. In Him, I talk. In Him, I have my being. You with God are majority.
“I drop my pen here to say I love you all and trust only God, Jesus Christ, our Saviour,” the Nigerian preacher said.
