TB Joshua was a deceptive magician who claimed to be another Jesus – Popular Pastor

The Senior Pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie, has described the late TB Joshua, as a deceptive magician and sorcerer, who calls himself a Prophet.

Pastor Okotie said this in a video which was uploaded to the Church’s Youtube page.

According to the clergyman, TB Joshua called himself Jesus, which he said fulfilled a biblical pattern of Bar-Jesus, a doctrine where ones equates himself to Jesus Christ.

He said, “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?” Okotie asked.

“Was he a true prophet, who was misunderstood? Or a hypocrite masquerading under the habiliment of the Faith?”.

“When God begins a work in scripture, particularly from the old testament, he begins with patterns, what we call types, shadows.”

“You say why because the patterns determine the flow of power and authenticity of that enterprise. He is a magician, a sorcerer, and calls himself a prophet.”

“Notice Joshua 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 is a magician who claims to be a prophet but he is a false prophet.”

He further said, “In the first century AD, a group of heretical teachers invaded the church, they call themselves gnostics and that word comes from the Greek word gnosis which speaks of knowledge.”

“They claimed that they had the superior knowledge above the church above the Bible and that they had attained the level of esoteric legitimacy that provided knowledge that was peculiar only to that ilk.”

“They claim that Jesus Christ didn’t come in the flesh and that it was an apparition. They claim that Jesus Christ was the son of Joseph and he was appointed by God for a particular spiritual responsibility.”
