Chris Okotie has attacked late TB Johsua’s preaching and the late Prophet himself, saying he claimed to be the same as Jesus Christ.
The founder of the Household of God Church, Chris Okotie, has described the late founder of The Synagogue Church of all Nations, Temitope Joshua, as a ”magician” and a ”sorcerer”.
Mr Okotie has been a long-standing critic of his late colleague and once described the late prophet as the “vicar of the devil on earth.”
In a 75-minute video titled ‘The truth about T.B. Joshua’ which was posted on his official YouTube channel on Sunday, Okotie said the late cleric who died in June equated himself with Jesus Christ by his name, conduct, and spiritual pattern.
“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.”
Mr Okotie also likened him to the late Bar-Jesus, a false prophet in the scriptures who equated himself with Jesus.
“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.
