T.B Joshua ask Kenyans, Why Me For All This Hatred?
Standard Digital, which reported that Magu killed his wife, Lydia, and mutilated her body before committing suicide, said the husband’s passport indicate that he has been to Nigeria no fewer than 20 times since 2009.
The media said during such numerous visits to Nigeria, Magu attended church services at the Synagogue Church of All Nations. It said the couple’s three children are presently missing as well.
Standard Digital, however, questioned; “Could the dead parents of the three missing children in Nairobi have been members of a religious cult?”
Below is the full text of T.B Joshua’s response on Facebook:
KENYANS, WHY ME OF ALL THIS HATRED?
This is an official statement from Prophet T.B. Joshua. My attention has been drawn to several publications in Kenyan media alleging that Mr Paul Magu had visited The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria over 20 times. These reports are both untrue and ridiculous. It must take a religious spirit to believe and say this!
Thousands of people come here with their problems from around the world. This may be one of the people that came with depression and a spirit of suicide for deliverance. If he was delivered here, perhaps he lost his deliverance. He may have gone back to his past life.
Because you come here for prayer does not mean you are a friend of Jesus. It is only when you maintain your relationship with Him that makes you a friend.
You religious people stop blaspheming. We are Christians; we are not exchanging issues with you. We pray all spirits of religion in your life be delivered, be removed, in Jesus’ name!
In John 10:10, the Bible says that Satan came to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus came to give life and life in abundance. That is our mission, to give life in abundance, in Jesus’ name.
Kenyans, remember that this is not the first time false rumours have been spread concerning me in your nation. Several rumours were spread online previously that I had prophesied Al-Shabaab terrorists would kidnap and kill Kenya’s President. Why this hatred for me in Kenya? This is a religious spirit.
Take note, one may claim to be a Christian yet be religious. People with a religious spirit have no independent mind, they take everything they hear, see and read without finding out the truth. We are all brought up from a religious background and delivered to become Christians. Yet many claim to be Christians who are still not properly delivered. Therefore, we should examine everything in the light of God’s Word. This is what the Bible means by find out the truth and the truth shall set you free (John 8:32).
I want to believe the religious people are behind this story. I have never been to Kenya before. This will not stop me from one day coming to Kenya at God’s appointed time.
It would be recalled that a tragic building collapse occurred at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on September 12, 2014, at Ikotun area of Lagos State, where about 116 worshipers lost their lives.
However, it was reported that counsels to the clergyman had filed a legal challenge against the coroner for summoning Prophet Joshua to come and testify on the building collapse.
